Alice Arm Mining Will
Receive Impetus This
Year
As spring approaches, it becomes
more apparent that the mining
industry of Alice Arm will receive
a big momentum. Those of our
citizens who have recently visited in
the south, return with reports of
numerous enquiries being made regarding the district. In mining
circles on the outside it is admitted
that Alice Arm has the promise of
developing into a big prodnoing
camp, and it is the general opinion
that the camp has now recovered
from the injurious effect caused by
the closing down of the Dolly Varden, over five years ago.
Local owners of mining properties are receiving enquiries from
the representatives of influential
mining companies, and it is certain
that a considerable number of mining engineers will visit the camp
this summer.
Occasionally a paragraph appears
iu the press to the effect that
it is reported that the Dolly Varden
and Wolf mines will be operated
this year, but no public statement
has yet been made by the company
controlling the property.
After thoroughly sifting all
reports published iu the press, and
from individuals, it is plain that
the mining industry will receive an
impetus this year, and that it will
be of such foreefulness, the momentum will be sufficient for all time.
Archdeacon Rix Pays a
Visit to Anyox
The Ven. Archdeacon Rix was a
visitor to Anyox during last weekend, in the interest of the Episcopal
Endowment Fund for the Diocese
of Caledonia.
There was a fair attendance at
the meeting in Christ Church on
Thursday evening, when the Archdeacon gave an interesting talk on
the history of Diocese. On Sunday
evening's Service, by request much
of the address was repeated, closing
with a stirring appeal to the con-
gregatien to help liberally towards
the amount neoessary for the provision of the next Bishop's stipend.
There was a large congregation
present, and so far the response
has been most gratifying.

in the Alice Arm district, he states,
and it is the general opinion that
the oamp is on the eve of big de-
velopments,
See Al. Falconer for Freight and
Pack Horses
Hans Peterson returned on Saturday, from Anyox, where he has
spent the past few months at the
mine.
Mrs. W. M. Cummings returned on
Monday from a sit week's trip to
Vanoouver, Seattle and other coast
towns.

at
Anyox P. T. A.
Meeting
At the monthly meeting of the
Parent-Teaohers Association . held
on Tuesday evening, February 16th
Miss Duncan and Dr. H. S.
Trefry addressed the meeting on
"Child Welfare," and Dr. Davis
played a few selections on the piano
to the delight of everyone present.
Miss Duncan in her address pointed
out to the mothers the necessity of
upright walking in their children
for the benefit of chest development.
The necessity of giving plenty of
milk, and also to vary its uses, and
the need of physical exercises. Miss
Duncan complimented the mothers
on the cleanliness of the Sohool
children of Anyox.
Dr. Trefry next addressed the
meeting, taking as his subject the
"Development of Character" He
said that emotion has a great deal
to do with the development of a
child's character, and parents
should take great care to study
their children individually.
He also impressed the necessity
of training at home, by the parents
as well as at day school, and Sunday school. He said that from the
age of twelve to twenty, the boy
was a man in the making. "Feeling his way, he does as he sees, and
and his lack of judgement leads
him to misunderstanding"
Throughout his address he emphasized the responsibility of the
parent toward the child.
Both speakers were greatly
appreciated, and a very enjoyable
evening was spent..
Alice Arm Hockey Players Again Suffer
Disappointment
The hopes of the local hookey
players were again shattered during the week, when a rainstorm on
Thursday destroyed what hopes
might have been entertaiuad of
playing hockey on the local rink.
The early part of the week gave
promise of eojd weather and a nice
start was make in flooding and
freezing the rink, but the temperature suddenly rose, and with its
rise the hopes of the workers on the
rink sank.
Some skating was available for
a few days during the early part of
the week on a small piece of ice
near the first falls.
A trip was also made to Lost
lake on Sunday, by a small party.
This lake is about three miles from
Alice Arm, and as far as is known
has never been skated on before-
Good luck crowned the efforts of
those who made the trip, for on
arrival the ice was found to be
over four inches thick, and as
smooth as glass, and measuring
over 1000 feet in length and 800
feet wide.
Gorgeous Costumes At
Anyox P. T. A. Annual
Dance
A very successful dance was put
on by the Parent-Teachers Association in the Recreation Hall on
Monday February 15th. The Hall
was very artistically decorated
with valentine favors, and it was
very plain, even to the casual observer, that great pains had been
taken with the costumes. The
report of the committee in charge
is most gratifying, as the sale of
tickets were more than anticipated.
The dancing started at 9 p.m. when
quite a few of the early comers
started to loosen up their joints
and get the fioor'in good shape for
those that were tofollow later. At
9.45 the floor was pretty well con- •
gested.
The prizes awarded for the best

St. Valentine's Dance at
Alice Arm Hotel
A very enjoyable St. Valentine's
dance was held at the Alice Arm
Hotel on Saturday evening. A
good number of dancers were present, and an enjoyable evening was
spent until midnight, after which
supper was served. A feature of
the evening was the large number
of new dance tunes played by the
orchestra, and which were very
much appreciated. The orchestra
consisted of Mrs. Laidlaw, saxophone; W. Stevens, piano; C. Hutchison, clarinet; R. G. Gordon,
saxophone; E. Aubusson, traps and

; Twelve years ago next month
the first furnace was blown in at
Anyox.     Those who were   at
Anyox at that time and who are
still numbered among its residents,
are very few.   Since that auspic
ious occasion some thousands o
people have passed through Anyox.
Some stopped a few  months,  an
a good number spent several years.
The majority of those who follow
the mining camps are of a roving dis
position, and often those who have
no inclination to move join the rov
ing ranks, when "the can is tied.'
Anyox, is a place where friend
ships are made and broken  almost
every day.   On nearly every boat
someone is leaving perhaps never
to  return.     They leave    behind
numerous close friends whom they
have made during  their stay-perhaps several years.    All these ties
are broken as the boat  leaves the
wharf, and very few are likely  to
be renewed.    We  were  standing
on  the  wharf one fine   summer
morning last year, when the Cardena was leaving  for the  south.
Among those on   board   was a
family who had spent many years
in   Anyox.      Numerous    friends
were on the wharf to bid them
farewell,    It was an ordeal for the
lady, to leave so many friends be
hind, but she bore it bravely unti
the boat commenced  to   slowly
swing from the wharf and then the
flow of tears could not be restrained
Her husband standing by her side
gently led her below, and  as he
turned for one last look, his eyes
were also moist.    Both were leaving many friends, who   perhaps,
they would never see again, and
the final snap of the link of  friendship was too great   for   them   to
bear  without emotion.     Such is
life in a western mining  camp, an
acquaintanceship of a few   years
and then goodbye.
The smelter of the Granby Co,
at Anyox is a big asset to the mineral industry of Northern B. C,
and will undoubtedly be bigger as
more mining properties are developed to the shipping stage. The
smelter is in the midst of a rich
mineral bearing zone, and the low
rates of water transportation, make
it possible to mine and ship at a
profit, that would be impossible if
the ore had to be shipped a long
distance, especially by railway.
The Anyox smelter can successfully treat any copper or gold ore
and any silver ore except the highest grade. It can not treat lead or
zinc, but the Granby Co. would
with question install a lead smelter
Anaconda  Co.  Makes
Enormous Output of
Copper
Anaconda Copper Mining Company last year turned out 190,000-
000 pounds of fabricated copper
and brass products at its own mill
in Great Falls and at the plants of
its subsidiary, the American Brass
Company, according to a review
published in the Wall Street Journal.
"In other words," says The Journal's story, "Anaconda and its subsidiary fabricated into finished or
seini finished form approximately
25 per cent of the world's production of copper in 1925.
"Tlie American Brass Company
in 1925 fabricated a much larger
tonnage of finished and semi-finished products than ever before in its
history and in 1925 the Great Falls
wire and rod mill turned out a
larger tonnage of wire and rods
than ever before was turned out by
any single plant in the history of
the copper industry.
"Production of 790,000,000
pounds of finished and semi-finished
materials in 1925 compares with
production of 627,680,895 pounds
in 1924, increase of 162,300,000
pounds, or almost26 percent. Output of Great Falls plant is being
increased one-third and will be in
operation at the increased rate of
15,000,000 pounds of rods a month
hi the second half of 1926, it
is: .expected.
Orders on the books of the American Brass Company and the
Great Falls wire and rod mill
books are one-third larger than
they were at the first of last year.
Price of copper is somewhat lower
than a year ago at this time, but
average price of copper for 1925
was about lj cents a pound higher
than in 1924, Out look is for appreciable higher average price for
copper in 1926 than in 1925."

The new quarters of the Consoli-

are about the finest in the interior.
The building is 100 x 100 feet and
contains three floors, totalling approximately 25,000 square, feet
including full basement below and

ibove the main floor. The store is
the latest in every way and in

as soon as sufficient tonnage can be
guaranteed for continuous operation, but that time has not yet
arrived. It is understood that the
Granby Co. will be shortly smelting their own concentrates, which
will mean that they will be able to
handle concentrates for other companies who mill their ore. It is
quite possible that when the mining industry of the north is more
fully developed, that Anyox will
absorb a large portion of the ore
mined, and will rank as a custom
smelter of considerable proportions.
It is taking a long time for this
northern part of the province to
become developed, but development is nevertheless progressing,
and progress will ultimately spell
prosperity.

How London Controls
the World's Price of
Silver
Miners of silver the world over
realized considerably more for their
product during 1925 than during
1924. Yet a conclusion exactly
opposite would be reached by the
peruser of the current annual reviews of the silver market by two
of the four well known London
metal brokers, who meet each business morning to decide for the
expectant world what shall be the
official price of silver for that day.
Messrs. Mocatta & Goldsmith observe, ''There have been no purchase for the Home Mint nor for
the Indian Government,' and view
of the fact that the Continental
purchases have been so much
smaller, it is not surprising that
the average price for the year is 1|
d, lower than that for 1924." Messrs. Sharps & Wilkins say, "The
average price has worked out at
32|d. per ounce Standard, as compared with 34d. in the previous
year." Neither makes any mention of the price in New York.
There are in Britain a great
many shareholders in silver mines
situated in Canada, Mexico, India,
and elsewhere who might be led to
believe, if they were to read these
reviews, that the silver market had
been downward instead of upward
bent. As is well known, we on
this side of the Atlantic await
each day the arrival of cables from
London brokers. Then, by translating their figure, expressed in
pence per ounce "Standard,"' to
cents per ounce 999 line, we obtain
the recognized quotation for the
day. How, one may fairly ask,
can London decline l|d. when the.
New York average rose from
-66.781c. in 1924 to 69.065? The
explanation is this: tlie average
price for sterling exchange rose
from 441.397c. in 1924 to 482.426c.
iu 1925. It is only necessary to
adjust the London prices in pence
, to its equivalent in terms of American dollars—the real world stan-
dard of value in the last few years
I —to show that the value of silver
J actually increased in London as
I well as in New York.—Engineer-
ling Mining & Journal Press.
Imperial Oil Co. Will Suspend
Drilling at Fort Norman
After spending more than a million dollars in exploration work, the
Imperial Oil Limited has at last
obtained a crude oil supply in Canada, it was reported by President
C. 0. Stillman at the annual meeting of the company held in Toronto
recently.
Imperial Oil, the president stated, does not contemplate further
drilling operations at Fort Norman
but the company is negotiating an
arrangement with the Hudson's
Bay Company whereby the latter
may purchase the crude oil produced by Imperial at that point.
It will be treated, at a small refinery at Fort Norman and the product utilized by the Bay company
in the North.
Big Gold Rush In Northern
Ontario
Prospectors returning from the
Red Lake area say the rush there
may attain proportions greater
than that of '98 to the Yukon.
Hudson's Bay men and natives are
amazed at the extent of the trek.
Dozens of prospecting outfits are
swarming northward over new
trails, some gold seekers traveling
at night to beat competitors. Old
timers say that the traditional
friendliness of old prospecting days
is absent.
