Granby Company
Developing Maple
Bay Properties
, The Granby Consolidated Mining
[ Smelting and Power Co., Ltd. were
■ the first big mining Co. to success-
| fully operate in Northern British
f Columbia, when they took over the
[ Hidden Creek property on what
was then Goose Bay and developed
, it iuto the biggest copper producer
in the British Empire. ,
The famous Dolly Varden mine
at Aiioe Arm was the next big
property to jump into prominenoe,
and its fabulous rich silver ore
proved that the northern coast
mountains contained high as well
as low grade ore. The Premier
Mine, at Stewart, one of the biggest
■ dividend payers in the world was
the next big property to step into
the limelight, and all signs point to
the faotf that another big mine will
, soon be established in this district,
and that mine will be lucated at
Maple Bay on the properties now
1 being developed by the Granby Co.
The Granby Co. have three sep-
erate   properties under   bond at
Maple Bay the,   Outsider, Eagle
land Anaconda;' The Outsider is
the oldest property of the three.
Development work was doneoii the
property by the Brown-Alaska Co.
in 1906 and in 1907 they shipped
around 20,000 tons of copper ore to
, the Hedley Smelter at the Prinoe
of Wales Island, Alaska. In the
fall of 1907 the price of copper
dropped and the Outsider ceased
operations. as did 'every other
copper property iu Northern B. C.
and Alaska. The Brown-Alaska
Company encountered financial
difficulties, and the property was
acquired by the Granby Co. last
year who commenced development
, The Eagle property which lies
to the' south-east of the Outsider,
was acquired this year, from Wm.
Noble, of Stewart, and Wm. polli-
son, Indian Agent, at Prince
Rupert, and the Anaconda, which
joins the Eagle, was acquired
from      James       Flewih, of
Port Simpson. These three
properties all contain good
ledges of copper ore traceable on
the surface for a considerable distance, but very little underground
work has at any time been done on
either the Eagle or Anaconda.
x Development work on the Outsider was commenced by the Granby Co., in July, 1922, aud at the
present   time development   work
. consists of 200 feet of drifts and
raises per month. A new wharf
has been built, a tramline is under
construction, also a small, dam to
supply power, and the property is
looking good. It is expeoted that
by November 1st. ore shipments
from the Outsider will be sent to
the Anyox smelter. The ore shipped will oarry considerable silica to
mix with the Hidden Creek ore.
Sixty men are now employed at
the Outsider,
Diamond drilling operations
oommenced on the Eagle property
about two months ago, at a elevation of 3,500 feet, and the results
obtained have been extremely satisfactory. The highest elevation of
the Eagle is about 6,000 feet.
No development work on   the
i Anaconda has yet been done.
Should the three above mentioned
properties prove up to expectations,
a concentrating plant, capable of
handling 1000 tons of ore per day
will probably be built on tine beach
and the ore trammed from the three
mines to the mill.   With the roali-
Last Chance/ait Alice
Arm, Shows Good
Ore Ledge
Messrs A. McPhail and Paddy
Morley have finished development
work on the Last Chance property
for this year, and a very successful
season it has been. The main tunnel whioh has been driven 75 feet
was not proceeded with this year
but crosscuts aoross the ore ledge
on the surface were driven in order
to determine the strike of the ore
body, and when this has been done
the tunnel will be prooeeded with
in order to strike the ore at depth.
A surface orossbut 10 feet deep
was driven aoross the ledge and. the
Ledge at this point .was proved to
be fifteen wide. Another cut 500
feet distant was driven at the depth
of 25 feet, but at the time work
ceased the opposite wall of the ore
ledge had not been reached.
?The ledge, is well mineralized
throughout, with a high grade
streak in the centre about three
feet wide,      ,
Samples taken across the ore body
with the exception of the high
grade streak gave assay returns-of
80 Cents in gold, .06 copper, and 18
ozs. silver per ton. Higher assays
could easily have been obtained if
the high grade streak had been
included, but it was the wish ofthe
owners to obtain an average assay
of the lower grade ore.
From the workdonethissummer
the Last Chance has all the appear
arioes ofdeveloping into avaluable
property, and as soon as possible
further work will he done on the
property next year

Successful Card Party &
Dance Held at Anyox
On Monday evening last, the
Catholic Hall was packed to its
capacity when the Catholic Ladies
Altar Sooiety held their card party
and dance, and the committee are
to be congratulated on theexcellent
arrangements made, and they on
their part doubtless felt their efforts
were appreciated by the huge
attendance at the Hall. E very body
voted the evening a huge success
and we hope that these evenings
will be arranged more frqeuently
than heretofore. )
The Hall was tastefully decorated
and a very capable orohestra consisting of Mr. E. Hasler, Piano; Mr.
A. B. Giffen, Saxophone; and Mr.
Ed. Waterman, Drums; provided
the latest of catchy music. Mr.
Cy. Greenwell in his usual efficient
manner took charge of the arrangement of the card tables.
The Prizes for the Progressive
whist Tournament were, won by
Mrs. C. Salmon and Mr. Angus.
McKenzie. The committee of
ladies whose efforts made the evening so enjoyable were: Mrs. J. Harrington, Mrs. Ed. Morning, Mrs.
MoDougall, Mrs. Dupuis, Mrs.
Smith, and Mrs. J. Dillon.
Anyox Tennis Club Play
Interesting Gaines with
On Saturday and Sundav, September 22nd. and 23rd„ the Anyox
Tennis Club bad1 the pleasure of
entertaining representative teams
ohosen from among the members of
the Stewart Tenuis Club.
On Saturday, the day' of their
arrival, the weather was about as
bad as it could be, rain falling
heavily, and without the least sign
of clearing up, but whether it was
due to the prayers of the more
devout of our members, or whether
the clerk of the; weather, out of
sheer pity, shut off the tap, Sunday
dawned with, not a clear sky, but
anyhow, a rainless.one, and it kept
this way until the final game was,
being played in the, afternoon; then
to make up for lost time, came
down in buoketsfull.
The entertainment of our guests
opened almost as soon as they arrived, a dance having been arranged
for them in the Library, and by the
time they had both "Outwardly'|
and Inwardly" beautified and revivified themselves, the dance started
and inspired by j the weird and
delightful melody of the saxophone
and the accompanying musicians,
danced until midnight, when supper
was served. \
On Sunday morning play started
about 10 o'clock on a court
soaked with, rain, which had the
effect of deadening th*. -balls,. and
making the play anything but fast,
but in spite of this, many good
games were brought off, although
we were fortunate enough to win
the big majority, yet some of them
were closely contested, and two of
the more important ofthe matches']
jvere won by the Stewart players.
Our success was undoubtedly due
in some measure to Our familiarity
with the wooden courts, our visitors
never having played on courts of
this kind before, a very real handicap, as one who has played on other
courts, can well appreciate.
Great credit is due to the lady
members of the Anyox Tennis Club
for the way in which they did
everything in their power to make
the time pass pleasantly for the
visitors, and especially thanks are
due to Mrs. F. M. Kelly for offering
her home as a rendezvous for afternoon tea and for So admirably
serving it. ,
It is to be hoped that meetings of
this kind can be arranged each
year, not only with Stewart* but
with other towns, as it is good for
all concerned, in a oountry like this
more or less sparsely populated, to
meet in friendly rivalry, and learn
something about your neighbors
view point, and make new friends.
Kitsault River
Bridge Completed
The upper Kitsault River suspension bridge was completed last Sunday, and is now open for traffic.
The location of the bridge is 1000
feet above Camp-8.
The bridge is supported by two
steel wire cables If inches in diameter and fastened to anchor rod 3 in
the .solid rock on eaoh bank. The
total span of the bridge is 128 feet,
and is secured by guy lines. It
will carry a load of ten tons, which
will be ample for the needs of the
upper Kitsault country for,^ some
time, The bridge fills a long felt
want, and will be a great boon to
mining companies and prospectors
operating above Camp 8. ' About
2100 feet of new trail has also been
built to make connections with the
Kitsault Glacier trail.   ■/
zation of these hopes another pros
perous mining oamp'will be born on
the northern coast.
Maple Ray lies on the Portland
Canal and is already a port of call
for steamships going to Stewart.
The distance, in an air line from
Anyox is 7 J miles, from Alice Arm
25 miles, and from Stewart 39 miles
The distance to Stewart, however,
by water is much less than to
Anyox or Alice Arm, owing to the
fact that it is necessary to go down
the Observatory Inlet, and up the
Portland Canal in order to get there
from Anyox dr Alice Arm.
Extension of Alice
Ann Wing Dam
The work of extending the wing
dam above tme town of Aliee Arm
will commence next week. The
dam will be extended to the site of
the proposed Kitsault River bridge;*
The sum. of %5.000 has been appropriated. Jor this, wJurJw.*v*»#;<MiT,.„..
New Logging Camp
for Alice Arm
A new logging camp will shortly
be in operation at'Alice Arm., Mr.
E. J. Tremblay has secured a ^contract from Mr. J. O; Trethewey to
log a strip of land east of the Indian
Reserve. The timber being small,
horses will be used for pulling the
logs. The camp will be composed
of about 8 men.
As soon as this strip is logged,
100 aores of land will be logged by
Mr. Tremblay, on the west side 6f
the Kitsault River.: Horses will
be used for pulling logs, which will
be floated down the river next
spring. Operations will be carried
on throughout the winter.

The classes of the   Northern
Polytechnic Institute will commence
October 8th. at Alice Arm and
Anyox.   At Anyox the Institute
will receive the support of   the
management of the Granby Co.
and Mr. Robert Armour the local
representative, is very optimistic of
the success of the coming term.
The superintendents of the various
departments have promised  their
support and will   do   everything
possible to induce those employed
in their department to join the class
teaching the subject at which they
are employed. The superintendents
will also choose suitable men for
instructors, so that students will be
guaranteed first class   instruction,
and when promotions are made,
students of the Polytechnic classes
will be given preference over others.   There is no royal road to
learning in these enlighted times,
the book of knowledge is open to
all who care to take advantage of
the opportunity.   To obtain even
a moderate amount of success in
the world, hard work and study is
necessary and the harder one. studies, the more proficient he becomes
and by taking! advantage of his
opportunities as they present themselves he naturally becomes more
successful.     The classes of   the
Polytechnic are open to all.     A
large number of subjects will be
taught this year, and for the push-
full, energetic young men of Anyox
who are desirous of increasing their
stpre of knowledge, a grander
opportunity never presented itself.
The hard working students of
today will be the successful men of
Advanced Cases of
Tuberculosis on Increase
Victoria, September 25—Great improvements have been made in the
manner of caring for tubercular
patients at Tranquille Sanitarium,
according to the annual report of that
institution just released by Hon. J. D.
MacLean, provincial secretary.
Increased accomodation has been provided and the institution can now
care for 243 patients.
The minister points out that there
bas been a marked increase in the
number of advanced cases and a corresponding degree in the number of
incipient cases. This is in opposition
to the aims of the government, he
states, and advises that an earlier
diagonosis of the disease be made,, so
that tuberculosis may be checked in
its earlier stages. The sanitarium is
operating on a highly standardized
basis, entirely under the control of the
provincial government.

Oopper shipments, foreign and domestic, by American producers during
August approximately 205,000,000
pounds. This unusually high figure
compares with record peace shipments
in March of approximately 215,000,000
pounds and 207,000,000 in January,
making August the, third inonth this
Tear when shipments have been over
200,000,000 pounds." January was the
first peace month in the history of the
industry when copper shipments exceed 200,000,000 pounds.
August Shipments of 205,000,000
pounds; compare with 167,500.000 in
July,-185,000,000 in June and 195,000,00
in May, and bring shipments for the
first eight m6nths to approximately
1,540,000,000 pounds, or a monthly
average of approximately 192,500,000
pounds. This is by far the highest
average for any eigltt months in the
peace history of the industry and has'
been made despite untoward development in Europe.
Of the August total roughly 40 per
cent or 80,000,000 'pounds,were for
shipment abroad., This increase in foreign shipments,;, is most encouraging
and quite encouraging and quite surprising considering state of Ruhr and
general European situation.' Average
foreign shipments for previous seven,
months by American producers, including direct shipments from1 South
America to European consumers, have
been slightly under 60,000,000 pounds
a month, making the increase in August approximately 83 per cent, for
foreign shipments.
Following good demand of last week
copper market has been quiet with
prices unchanged, although in face of
unusually high shipments in August
of approximately 205,000,000 pounds
tone of market is distinctly better.
Week-end sales to Japan approximately 1,500,000'ppunds and it is believed
that the Japanese will be in the market for fair tonnages in the next few
weeks. It is expected that .main Japanese buying of copper will come
later, with galvanized sheets making
up most pf the earlier purchases for
repairing the damage done by the
earthquake and fire. Europe generally bought well towards the end of the
week, with France and England main
purchasers. This week buying seems
to be awaiting clearer indication of
the trend in Ruhr situation.
