Smelter Ore Shipment
From Wolf Give
High Values
Tlie ore shipment of 16 tons
made a few weeks ago by J. Fiva
and associates from the Wolf property, have given gratifying results.
The ore was shipped to Trail smelter and composed four tons'of high
grade and twelve tons of second
grade ore.       j
Returns of values were received
on Monday and are as follows:
High grade, 306 ozs. silver .and
$5.50 gold per ton, Second gracie,
71 ozs. silver and $6.00 gold per
ton. The lead value of the shipment was $11.00. These values
are dry weight. The whole shipment Averaged $100.00 per ton.
Owing to heavy freight charges,
it has been decided to ship no more
second grade ore to Trail.
The above values are very encouraging, especially when it is
taken into consideration that this
ore was taken from the surface,
and was badly oxidised.
Work on the tunnel being driven
to encounter this ore at depth is
progressing, and the values of ore
are expected to considerably increase when this objective is attained^
Well Known Anyox Man
Ends Life By
Mr. A. Bowles, who was well
known in Anyox, took his own
life at about 11.30 p.m. on Monday,
December 28th„ The deceased
had hung himself in the Trainmen's shack. He was discovered
by Mr. B. Sailer, who came off
shift at 11.45 p.m. and who at
once notified the Doctor and the
provincial authorities. The deceased is survived by his stepmother, who lives in Vancouver,
and a brother who resides at Port
Moody, B. C.
Mr. Bowles was well liked by all
his fellow workmen, and the news
of his death is indeed a sad blow
to his friends. He was born in
London, England, and served overseas during The Great War with
the Canadian Engineers.
Yesterday's Rain Worth
Real Money
To a lot of people the recent
rains are valueless, but the Granby
Co. look at it from a different
angle. A nice honest-to-goodness
juicy downpour occasionally relieves the management of considerable worry. It also enriches the
company's exchequer for as long
as water is available in the big
dam for hydro-eleotrio power, it
means a saving of $1000.00 per
day, for that is what it costs to
operate their steam plant. Now
$1000.00 per day is a lot of money
even for the Granby Co., so why
shouldn't they wear a smile, when
the sprinkling machine gets in
motion in January.
Christmas Services at
Christ Church Well
The Festival of Christmas was
ushered in with a midnight celebration of Holy Communion,
commencing at 11.30 p.m.,
The Church was prettily decorated, with flowers and berried holly
predominating. A large congregation was present and the music
was very inspiring.
There was morning Service and
Holy Oommvnion at 11 a.m. on
Christmas Day. Collections were
for the General Beneficiary Fund.

Granby Coy.  Receives
Boost From New York
Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting & Power Company Ltd.,
the most important producer in
Canada, has the largest productive
capacity per share of any copper
company listed on the New York
Stock Exchange, is the statement
of the magazine of Wall street in
last mouth's issue.
Ore reserves are sufficient for at
least ten years and the probable
life of the properties is much
Prior to the middle of 1919
when distributions were discontinued, the company was a large
and dependable dividend payer; iu
1916; the stock sold up to 120, and
in the seven years prior to 1920
it never sold below 48. Yet, since
May 1919, no dividends have been
paid, and since 1920 the stock has
not sold above 33.
The past six years has been a
difficult period for almost all copper companies, but especially difficult for Granby. Prior to .1914,
the Phoenix Mine was its big producer. Anticipating the exhaustion of the high grade ore reserves
in this property in 1914 the management opened up the properties
of Anyox, now the more important of its two producing divisions.
The Anyox venture necessitated
property expenditures of large proportions, expenditures which exhausted the net surplus of working
capital and led to the creation of a
funded debt. It took longer to
develop Anyox than was expected,
and the work involved new oapital
investments beyond original estimates. This explains why Granby
stock so long has been regarded as
a long pull speculation.

Kitsault River  Mining
& Development Co.
Hold General
The first annual general meeting
of the Kitsault River Mining &
Development Co., was held at the
company's registered office in Alice
Arm, on the 12th. day of December, 1925.
Quite a large number of shareholders were present. Most of
these were residents of Alice Arm,
showing the faith the people of
the camp have in the company.
The officers elected for the ensuing year, were: A. F. Smith,
president; J. Fiva, vice-president;
O. Flint, T W. Falconer and J.
Strombeek were elected to tbe
board of directors. A. D. Yorke
was re-elected as secretary.
The Managing Director, iu making his report to the shareholders,
referred to tho lateness of the
season in getting development
work under .way this year. This,
he explained, was due to there
being no supplies or materials on
the ground with which to begin
work. This made it necessary to
wait upon the going oF the snow
before supplies could be freighted
in. Ho pointed out that'•sufficient"
supplies had been placed on the
property so that an early start
could be made next spring.
In outlining the past season's
development work, the Managing
Director stated that the bulk of
the season's development work was
confined to the Matilda ore body.
This ore body having been proven
by open cuts and tunnel work for
a distance of 700 feet.
Late iu the season, the tunnel on
the Silver Tip. Claim was further
extended, and the ore body cut by
a crosscut tunnel. This was a
very promising vein, showing five
feet of a good grade of silver ore.
As to next season's operations, it
was planned to proceed on a larger
scale. A new tunnel would be
driven on the Silver Tip ore ledge
for a distance of 200 feet. The
Matilda ore body would also be
further developed, probably by
diamond drilling, tentative arrangements having already been
made to that effect.
The financial position of the
company was shown to be in good
shape, and the coming year was
looked forward to with much

The Christmas festive season
has now finally, closed. The last
parties have been given, and we
have. entered upon another year,
ready to take everything as it
comes. Both adults and children
of Anyox enjoy celebrating Christmas, and it is safe to say that
everyone had a merry time
Anyox is one of the few towns in
existence where poverty is unknown. Everyone is working and
all have money, and relief funds
for local charities, such as a Santa
Claus fund to provide a Christmas
dinner is something the people of
Anyox do not find it necessary to
organize. The children of Anyox
are indeed fortunate that this
happy state of affairs exist, for it is
the children, unable to help themselves, who are the worst sufferers
when hunger stalks abroad. It is
safe to say that in no town in this
wide Dominion are the children
given such a good time as in
Anyox. Parties and Christmas
Trees, given by different organizations follow one another in rapid
succession, The children of today will be the citizens of tomorrow, and when the juvenile
population grow up and spread
throughout the continent, they will
be able to look back on their
childhood days, and say: well,
Anyox wasn't such a bad place,
after all. They certainly knew
how to give us a good time.
Pictorial Book

which is now on sale at all newstands,
and which is at once the handsomest
and most complete publication ever
produced in the world for any single

industry of achievement, It is impossible to speak too highly of it.
The book represents years of effort;
typographically and pictorially, it is a
"masterpiece." Prom cover to cover
it is embellished with group pictures
of championship teams from I.S8.H to
1025, in fact, the history of Canada's

Old-timers will lie interested in the.

were prominent a generation ago,
while, the younger enthusiasts will enjoy the reproduction of the more recent winners.
The book is not only lavishly illustrated, but is literally crammed with
much interesting information regarding individuals, clubs and leagues
throughout the country.

Public Land Grant for
P. G. E. Outstanding
Event of Session
The Legislature prorogued at 10
o'clock  ou   Saturday    night,    the
19th. instant, having being in session exactly seven  weeks.   Sixty-
nine bills were assented to by  the
Lieutenant   Governor  of    which,
however, there were not many of
outstanding    importance.        The
most striking feature of  the  legislature of the 1925 session undoubtedly  was that providing for the
granting of public lands in  aid  of
the construction   of   the   Pacific
Great  Eastern  Railway.    This is
explained  by  the government   as
being designed to assist in uegotia
ting for the sale of the line and its
continuance   into  Prince    George
and the Peace River.   If no sale
is made before the next session it is
taken as granted that the government will consider the completion
of the road to Prince  George  and
also from Sqiiamish to Vancouver.
The Act provides that the line cannot be leased, sold  or   otherwise
disposed of,  nor can  any disposition be made of the lands granted
in aid without first obtaining  the
sanction of the Legislature.   The
lands  to  be granted   are   to   be
selected   within  the  Clinton   and
Quesnel land recording   districts,
in areas designated in the Act and
described   as   the   East   Cariboo
Block and the West Cariboo Block,
and   West   Lillooet    Block:     An
effort is to be made to have the
Dominion  Government return   to
the   Province   tho    Peace    River
Block, in  which case those lands
would be made available for railway grant, but if they cannot he
got back then the Act provides for
lands to be selected out of a block
of tbe  lands of the  province adjoining the Peace River Block on
the south and  west.   The dispute
between the farmers of the Somas
area   and   the   Land   Settlement
Board regarding the costs of the
reclamation work  and  the repayment of this has been settled in a
measure passed by the House just
before the adjournment,  by which
the annual load on the owners is
lessened by a long extension of the
time of payment.

One Year Ago Today
One year ago today the first
hockey league game of the season
was played on the Alice Arm
skating rink. The roof shook
with the roars of the spectators.
The stars of the teams Hashed over
the ice aud everybody was happy.
But today the Skating Rink is a
place of wet loneliness, and all is
dark and dreary, where a,year ago
the lights Were bright and gaiety
reigned supreme.
Christinas and the New Year
were, wet both inside and out for a
good many. With pure water
saturating the outside and the
colored water which is labelled
beer doing likewise inside, it is a
wonder that so many survived
these internal and external baths.

the boys struck for shorter hours.
Did you get e'ra?"
Pat— Sure, we are not working
at all now."
Miss Gab—"He doesn't speak. to

Miss Fab—"No. He asked her
what he should use on his hair and
she told him furniture polish.
