Anyox Choral Society
Entertains Alice Arm
An appreciative Alice Arm audience filled T. W. Falconer's hall on
Saturday evening and enjoyed one
of the most entertaining evenings
in the camp's history.
The occasion was a visit of the
A nyox Choral Society. They were
accompanied by the Anyox Amateur Concert Orchestra, and their
combined efforts provided an evening of singing and music that will
not shortly be forgotten by those
who fortunately attended.
There was not a dull moment
throughout the entire evening.
One number followed the other in
quick succession. The sweet singing of the massed choir, the perfect
time and the excellent- conductor-
ship was a pleasant surprise to the
audience, who vociferously applauded each item.
Encores were freely given, and
were appreciated by those present.
The individual efforts of the artistes were of a high standard, and
they also received much applause.
The conductor of the choir, Mr.
N. R. Redman, is to be congratulated upon the efficiency shown by
his pupils, during the few months
the choir has been in existence.
The Amateur Concert Orchestra,
under the oonductorship of Mr.
Stuart Steele, delighted the audience with four selections. The
perfect rendering of. each number
plainly showed that many hours of
patient practise were necessary for
the attainment of such results.
As stated above, the evening's
entertainment provided was greatly-
appreciated and a return visit will
be anxiously awaited.
Following is the programme:
1. Selection by the orchestra.
2. Choir singing, "O Canada."
3. Part song by choir, "John
4. Pianoforte solo, Mrs. J. L.
5. Part Song by choir, "0

Is Satisfied With Home-
Guard After Week's
The Homeguard property has
greater ore showings than I ever
anticipated wasthestatementmade
to the Herald by Angus McLeod
after he had spent a week there.
Mr. McLeod examined the property on behalf on the Dalhousie
Mining Co. who are carrying on
development work. - It was the
first time he had an opportunity of
thoroughly examining the surface
it now being clear of snow.
He stated that the recent strike
of copper ore on the Canyon claim,
was an important one. Surface
stripping is now being carried on,
and a tunnel is also being driven
to get depth on the ore.
The property will be tested as
soon as possible by radiore pros
pecting, and the equipment may
arrive next week, or as soon as it
can be arranged. Future plans
regarding development work will
depend upon the results of the radiore prospecting. It is expected
that big bodies of copper ore will
be located and the source of the
immense copper boulders that have
been found on the property located.
Mr. McLeod also examined the
Tidewater Molybdenum, which is
situated about four miles down
the inlet and owned by G. W.
Bruggy and  Wm.  McFarlane.
He stated that the quantity and
quality of ore already developed
exceeded his expectations. Its
close proximity to tidewater was a
valuable asset. Its showings of
molybdenum ore were the best he
had ever seen, and he was confident
that further development work
would prove up much more rich
Kitsault Valley Road Is
Being Extended To
Tiger Mine
Work was commenced this week
on the extension of the road from
the end of the steel of the Dolly
Varden Railway. It is being done
by the Department of Public
Works, under the supervision of J.
Work has been commenced at a
point 500 feet north of the sus
pension bridge, and thisxyear, will
be carried through to the Tiger
The road will be approximately
ten feet wide. The old trail will
not be followed, but an entirely
new road built, until the Tiger
camp is reached, where it joins the
old trail. This will be followed
when further work is done.
Last year, a part of the road
was re-graded and widened between the suspension bridge and
Toric mine. By extending the
road north each year the Kitsault
Glacier will ultimately be reached.
Mining companies operating in the
Upper Kitsault country will then
enjoy first-class transportation
facilities. They will be able to
ship supplies from Aliee Arm to
the glacier by rail to Camp 8 and
from there by auto truck to the

$100 par stock outstanding.
The output of copper for the
quarter was 14,904,806 pounds,
compared with 13,561,345 pounds
the previous year. The monthly
average this year was 4,968,269
compared with 4,520,448 in the first

It is customary at this season of
the year to sound the usual warning about carelessness with fire in
the forests. People read it, take
heed more or less, yet the same
carelessness goes on year after
year. Fires break out, the taxpayer's money is spent in suppressing these out-breaks, young growth
timber is destroyed. The taxpayer surfers in the loss of revenue
through government royalties on
timber thus destroyed—the general public suffers through the loss
of money put in circulation by the
timber and allied industries.
But this season we give more
than usual warning. The Dominion Government Weather Bureau
reports that winter precipitation
was sixteen inches less than average years. This means a greater
fire hazard than we have had for
many a long year—it means that
the situation is serious—that every
right thinking citizen must take
The prevention of forest fires in
British Columbia this season is
more than a Forest Branch problem—more than a question for the
timber industry. It is a social
problem which goes deep into the
fibres of every-day life—which
affects every man, woman and
child in B. C.
And because it is a social
problem, it can best be met by the
public itself. During the past few
years agencies have been at work
throughout the Province teaching
the fundamentals of forest protection, The ultimate success of this
laudable undertaking rests upon
individual citizens. It is up to
every individual to become forest
conscious—to think and act in
stamping forest fires out of British

Copper Sales Continue
To Be Quiet
Sales of copper continue to be
made by the custom smelters at
18c. delivered, Connecticut Valley
basis, and the volume of business
is about the same as that reported
each week since the market break
early in April. Primary producers,
generally speaking, continue out of
the market, though they report a
gradual accumulation of inquiries
for special shapes and brands that
cannot be absorbed by the custom
Foreign business continues desultory at a small percentage of
normal. The delay in settlement
of the reparations question is closely linked with the lack of foreign
buyers. Producing interests, in'
general, are inclined to feel that
considerable June copper will be
bought for foreign account as soon
as the reparations question is definitely settled and that such buying
will stimulate commitments by
domestic fabricators. Copper Exporters, Inc., maintains its price at
18.30c, c. i. f. usual European
destinations.—Engineering & Mining Journal.

Activities of Granby Consolidated
at its Allenby operation were reviewed by H. C. Smith, general
manager at Allenby, at a board of
trade banquet at Princeton. Operations started in August, 1925, and
have continued without interruption
since. Obsolete machinery was replaced from time to time, until today the plant is one of the most
modern in British Columbia. It is
treating 2500 tons of crude ore
daily. Since 1925, a total of 2,700,-
000 tons of crude ore have been
tested, and 110,000 tons of concentrates produced, from which has
been extracted 67,000,000 pounds
copper, 5000,000 ounces of silver
and 14,500 ounces of gold.

Re-Financing   of  The
Woodbine Company
Under Way
Expressing thanks to, and full
confidence in the newly elected
board of directors of the Woodbine
Gold Mining Company, a large
gathering of share holders on May
17th. authorized the board to proceed at once with the re-financing
of the company.
Reports from the mine, backed
by several hundred assays indicating big bodies of ore were presented to the meeting by Mr. H. C,
Briggs, manager. Mr. Briggs gave
credit to Mr. Malcolm MacKenzie
mine boss, whose confidence in the
property never wavered through all
the months of anxiety recently
The directors will proceed forth
with to arrange further finances
and will also continue their investigation into the affairs of the company with a view to recovering
certain large sums of money and
stock said to be incorrectly charged
against the Woodbine Company.
These details are said to have taken
place in 1927 and part of 1928 but
not during the time of the board
presided over by Mr. S. Burke or
in the time of the present Board
and when assay after assay, giving
values from $25 to $400 per ton
were read the applause was considerable.
Road conditions are rapidly improving and shipments will be made
from the mine very shortly in
larger quantities.
Negotiations regarding the operation of a mill seven miles from the
property to further develop the
possibilities of the mine will be continued and it is expected that
arrangements will be completed for
the milling of the entire production
at that point.
