Annual Report of the Anyox
General Hospital for 1926
With Table Showing Expenditure and Income
Following is the Annual Report
of tho Anyox General Hospital,
Owing to lack of space a few leas
important items have been omitted.,
The Board of Directors of the
Anyox General Hospital Association have pleasure in submitting to
the members of the Association tho
following report of tho operation of
tho Medioal and Hospital Agreement for the past year.
The present Medical and Hospital Agreement which went into
force on January 1st, 1922 has been
utilized very fully by the members
of the association during the year
1926 as will be borne out by the
following comparative figures,
giving some idea to what extent
the servioe as provided by the ag
reement has been used during the
year 1926.
Number of patients treated in
Hospital, 332.
Number of days treatment, 4705.
Average days stay in Hospital,
14.17.
Types of cases: Medical, 113;
Tubercular, 3; Surgical Major, 52;
Surgical Minor, 65; Obsterical, 41;
Infectious, 5.
Number of deaths, 5.
Visits in out patient department:
Mine, 5553; Beach, 9889.
Our Hospital has a capacity of
18 beds and of these 18 beds an
average of 12.89 were occupied continuously throughout the year so
that the members of the association
may readily see that the medical
staff is kept very busy looking after
those people who are unfortunate
enough to go to Hospital, but fortunate in that they have one of the
most up-to-date hospitals of its size
in the province to go to.
The Medical and Hospital agree
ment between the Granby Co.,
Workmen's Compensation Board
and the Granby Employees is one
that has meant a big saving to a
great many members of the association over any former agreement
that was previously in existence,
and to those members who have
not had to have any medical advice
or medicine it has at least given a
feeling of security in knowing that
should they take ill that they will
be properly looked after.
From the financial standpoint,
I the operation ofthe agreement has
not been a success, as the following
losses  from the inception of the
agreement to the end of the present
[ year will show.
Expenses
The year 1926 shows the smallest
loss on the Medical and Hospital
Agreement since the agreement
went into elfect, due in a large
measure to more efficient operation
which was obtained without any
■sacrifice iu the sorvioe.
It is the hope of the Board, with
the assistance of the Medioal and
Nursing staff, that the year 1927
will show a further marked inorease
in tlie operating loss over that of
the year just past.
The Comparative Classified Income and Expense Statement will
give the members of the Association a clear piotureof the operations
for the year 1926 as compared with
the year 1925.
The following big repairs and
replacements were made in the hospital during the year:—
Laying of linoleum on hallways
and stairways cost $155.40.
Re-flooring of four wards and
repainting Hospital throughout
cost $839.20.
The above improvements ran
into considerable expense, the deficit being increased thereby, however the benefits derived will be
spread over a considerable period of
time which in the estimation of the
Board warranted the outlay.
The Board of Directors before
closing their report would like to
thank the Medical and Nursing
staff for the fine manner in which
the Medical and Surgical service
was carried out during the year
just ended, and the Board feel that
with the co operation of the Hos
pital staff in the coming year that
the Hospital will make a showing
both in the service rendered, as well
as from a financial view point that
the association may well be proud
of.
The Board also wish to thank
the Ladies Hospital Auxiliary for
their assistance in keeping the
Hospital linen in repair, aud also
for the many comforts furnished
the patients during the year, their

Development of Copper
Properties Will Be
Undertaken
It is learned from official sources
that Col. Victor Spencer and associates of Vancouver, who bonded the
Vanguard, Homestake, Red Point,
and Copper Cliff properties last
October will carry out their development programme as planned, last
year except for a few minor changes.
All four properties will be developed, and a compressor plant will be
installed on both the Vanguard and
Homestake.
The tunnel on the Red Point,
which has been driven throughout
the winter, and is now in over 200
feet will be carried to completion.
Exceptionally hard rock has been
encountered which necessitates slow
progress.
Development work will commence
on the Vanguard, Homestake and
Copper Cliff as soon as weather
conditions make it possible for the
transportation of machinery and
supplies.
Silver Cord Tunnel is
Developing Ore
A. McGuire, who is in charge of
operations at the Silver Cord property brought a large number of ore
samples to Alice Arm last week-end.
The ore is composed of silver, lead
and zinc.
He states that the tunnel is now
in over 200 feet, and that a full face
of ore is carried. The ore is principally zinc, with veins of silver-
lead running through it.
The objective of the tunnel is a
large body of ore showing on the
surface. When this ore has been
cut underground. A tunnel will be
commenced at a lower elevation,
which will give amuchgreaterdepth.
At the present time the Silver Cord
is a promising property.

R. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
In this week's issue will be
found the Annual Report of the
Anyox General Hospital Board.
It shows from what sources revenue was obtained, and how the
money was expended; also the
number of patients treated, both in
the hospital and outside. The
report makes interesting reading,
and will undoubtedly stimulate
interest in this indispensable institution. The average person generally, does not bother himself about
hospitals until he finds himself on
his back within its portals, with
every comfort and attention lavished upon him. He then realizes
what a tremendous asset such an
institution is to the community.
Anyox hospital is known far and
wide as a model of efficiency, both
for its medical and nursing staffs,
and the comforts bestowed on the
patients. No pains or expense
has been spared by the Hospital
Board for the alleviation of suffering and the saving of human life,
Monetary problems are generally
among the largest to be solved in
the operation of a hospital, and the
problem of keeping expenditure
to a certain level without impairing efficiency, is often a serious one.
The Anyox Hospital Board for
last year did solve this problem to
a large extent, for although the
number of cases treated were
larger than in the previous year, a
saving of over five thousand dollars
was effected. This was not done
without the expenditure of much
valuable time, and the members of
the Board are to be highly commended for their efficiency. One
big expense not borne by the
majority of hospitals in the province
and very often not taken into consideration, is the enormous number
of out-patients treated, who require
medical attention, but are not sick
enough to be a bed patient. Efficiency and comfort is the keynote
of the Anyox Hospital Board,
and our readers—especially those
who have been unfortunate enough
to be patients—fully appreciate the
beneficial service the hospital is
rendering to the district.

The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants. •
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Beports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application

ALICE  ABM  AND  ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday,   larch   26   1927
Students of Anyox High
School Wax Eloquent
in Debate
On Friday afternoon March 11th.
a very interesting debate was conducted by the Anyox High School
students. The subject chosen for
discussion was "That a higher duty
should be placed on fuel oil in order
to protect the coal mining industry
of British Columbia."
The students picked for this debate for and against were: speakers for affirmative, Leader, Jack
Barclay; second speaker, Miss
Greenwood; third speaker Miss
Dermody.
The speakers for the negative
were: Leader, Miss Nucich; second
speaker, Stewart Barclay; third
speaker,   Miss Jean McDonald.
The affirmative leader commenced
his debate by speaking on the need
of buying British Columbia products
The more B. C. products sold, the
less the taxes. This province has
not one productive oil well, butvast
deposits of coal.
Tbe negative leader pointed out
the numerous advantages of oil,
being more economical than coal,
no waste, no ash, very little smoke,
easily bandied and less labor needed.
The exclusive use of coal on coastwise boats would tend to raise
transportation and rates in general,
because more storage space would
be needed for the coal on boats and
space means money. Miss Nucich
raised the question, "Why should
B. C. natural resources be used when
there is no need?"
The second affirmative speaker
stated that money that should enrich
B. C. is enriching the United States
and this will continue until a higher
tax be put on oil.' While United
States oil can only lasta little longer
B. C's coal fields will last a thousand
years. If oil were taxed higher,
more coal would  be  used,   and  B.
C. would gain by it; more men
would be employed, and a great
industry would be started.
The second negative speaker
showed that he had no faith in preserving coal. When the coal of the
world has been depleted, science by
that time will have found a satisfactory substitute in the same way that
she has substituted for many other
things that we thought we could not
get along without.
The third affirmative speaker
dwelt on the fact that there is a
great wealth even in the by-products
of coal as coke, ammonia, sulphate
fertilizer, tar, etc. so why not use
mote of it. If little coal is mined
the profit can not be very big. While
I oil is easier handled it is more dangerous owing to its explosive prop-
| erties.
The third negative speakershowed
j that endless amounts of dirt were
I attached to coal. More cleanliness
attracts more tourists; and more
I tourists produce more wealth for the
Icountry; therefore use oil. Coal is
[dangerous for heating purposes be-
Icause of sparks as from trains.
The 1923 fire of Anyox was spoken of as an example.    Dirt produces
Ipoor health.     Coal   creates   dirt,
therefore use oil,
The affirmative leader was given
|:wo minutes to state his case.
Those who acted as judges for
[his debate were: Mr. J. Mitchell,
jvliss Selfe, Arthur Teabo andTheo-
Porter-Idaho to Build
Aerial Tramway
Portland Canal News
Directors of the Porter Idaho
Mining Co. held a meeting ill
Hyder, B. C, last night but gave
out nothing for publication.
A Victoria paper contains an
alleged interview with Clay Porter,
managing director of the oompany
part of whioh follows:
"Mr. Porter said that the Porter
Idaho Company was putting in a
tramway this season and that he
had completed all arrangements for
the financing of this construction
work without the selling of any
stock. This tramline will run for
2\ miles down the mountain from
the mine to the forks of the Marmot
river. From there it is only another 2/4 miles to the shipping
dock. The tramline will have a
capacity of 220 tons a day. The
present cost of handling ore from
the mine to the dock by horse
packs is $50 a ton he said. The
tramline will save $47 a ton, cutting the cost to about $3 a ton.
As a rule the man who is unable
to trust himself displays pretty
sound judgement.
Nearly 400 automobiles were
operated in Ketchikan last year,
the increase being something over
100 from the year 1925.
dore Asimus.
T. Asimus confined his remarks
to subject matter, showing in some
places what was lacking. In his
report he stated that a summing up
of points by the different speakers
was lacking. This made Judging a,
little harder.
Arthur Teabo criticized style; his
criticism however, was constructive.
He pointed out the most obvious
faults of the various speakers.
Mr. Mitchell who acted as advisory judge, mentioned in his report
the best speaker of the debate,
namely Miss Jean McDonald.
She merited this position Mr.
Mitchell said because she gave the
best discourse in subject matter,
arrangement and delivery.
Miss -Selfe briefly reviewed the
remarks of the judges and pronounced the decision in favor of the
affirmative.

Alice Arm Lots
i    Now is the Time to Buy
Alice Arm will very soon become a mining town of considerable importance. The mining industry is undoubtedly on
the eve of big developments, which means a big payroll and a
much larger town. Increased activity will result in placing
good residential and business lots at a premium. At the
present lots can be secured at attractive prices and on easy terms
BUSINESS    LOTS    FROM    $200    TO    $500
RESIDENTIAL   LOTS   FROM   $200  TO  $300
Terms made to suit buyers.     See Stephen  Dumas,   our
agent, and build where you don't have to move,

An additional feature is being
taken up by the A. C. L. this year
in establishing a reading room and
small library at the flats. This will
enable those living in this vicinity
who do not care to walk to the main
library to enjoy reading the most
up-to-date periodicals and books.
A number of the local fishermen
are reporting successful catches of
spring salmon; and some of the
enthusiastsarenot content in trolling
for the salmon, they seem to think
greater results can be obtained by
diving in the water after them.
