Records   Broken  Ore
Production Anyox
Last Year
During last year the Granby Consolidated Mining Smelting and
Power Co. Ltd. created another
record at the Hidden Creek mine.
They mined at total 1,410,763 dry
tons of ore, which was 42,367 in
excess of 1927.
* Blister copper produced at the
smelter reached a total of 35,093,-
898 pounds. During the first four
months of the year, some concentrates were shipped to Tacoma for
treatment, otherwise the copper tonnage would have been even higher.
Since May, however, all concentrates produced at Anyox have been
treated at the local smelter.
The big ore reduction plant at
Anyox was operated continuously
throughout the year. The smelter
operating 365 days and the concentrating mill 364. The latter closing
down on Christmas Day.
To take charge of the increased
demand for electric power, necessitated by operations at the Bonanza
mine and additions to the concentrating mill, a new 1100 K.w. unit
is being installed at the hydro-electric plant. The unit is taking the
place of a blower unit that was sent
to Allenby last summer.
The past year was a very successful one for the Granby Co. both
from a tonnage producing point of
view and also financially.
Although 1928 was the most
successful experienced in many
years, the present year promises to
surpass it. During the past year
the average price obtained for copper was a little over 14 cents per
pound. The commencement of this
year saw copper at 16 cents. The
price is still rising, and the best informed believe that prices will advance or at least hold their own for
a considerable period.
Robbie Burns' Concert
Was Outstanding
The management of the United
Church is to be congratulated for
the splendid entertainment they
provided the people of Anyox on
Friday evening the 25th. Those
present enjoyed every item of the
two and a half hour programme
which went through without a hitch.
The feature of the evening was a
humorous sketch entitled "Aunt
Susan's Visit," in which fifteen
players took part, the leading
characters being very well sustained
were as follows: Aunt Susan, Mrs.
H. Patrick; John Thomas Tibbs,
Mr. R. Roberts; Mrs. John Thomas

Offer For Toric Mine is Made by Big
British Mining Concern.    $50,000 Cash
A new offer has been made for
the Toric mine. The bid was
made by one of the largest British
mining concerns, and is as follows:
$50,000 cash payment on signing
of the option; a payment of $250-
000 three months thereafter, and a
furthur payment of $250,000 in one
year. They also agree to give the
Toric Mining Co. 500,000 shares in
a new company that will be formed
to operate the mine.
The above was wired to the Herald office yesterday from Vancouver
and is authentic.
This, in brief is the offer and it is
very probable that it will be accepted. It is much better than that
made by the Britannia Co. The
latter offer was much criticized by a
number of Toric shareholders, who
were of the opinion that better
terms could be arranged with some
other company.
In view of the above offer, it
seems probable that the Britannia
option   was never ratified by the
Toric Co. and that new offers  were
The loss of the Toric mine will
no doubt be a great disappointment for the Britannia Co. who
were making plans for future operations. H. T. Airey, who has
been in charge at the Toric for the
past two months for the Britannia
Co. relinquished his post yesterday.
His place has been taken by Mr.
Hayes, formerly superintendent for
tbe Toric Co.

The publication in our last issue
of the discovery of ore at the Esperanza mine carrying high gold
values is good news for the district.
It again bears out that' trite but
true observation that "gold is
where you find it." Gold is the
most widely distributed metal in
the universe. It is found in its pure
state in creeks and in quartz veins.
It is always associated with copper
ore, and often with silver and other
metals. The tonnage of gold ore
at the Esperanza will not be known
until much more development work
has been undertaken. It is there,
however, and development work
so far has exceeded highest expectations. The striking of gold
ore at the Esperanza again vividly
brings to the front the vast potential wealth that lies in the hills adjacent to Alice Arm. More development is necessary to disclose
this wealth. Every tunnel driven
will not encounter high grade.
There is always a chance, however,
and thank God there are still men
who are willing to take a chance,
For without the chancetaker a
mining camp would never be born.
Occasionally we receive an order
either by letter or verbally to "cut
out our advertisement" or "stop my
subscription." Sometimes the discontinuance of an advertisement is
caused by lack of business, or in
the case of a subscription to general
hard luck. Sometimes it is done
through sheer malice. If the former we extend sympathy. The
latter we treat with contempt.
Since we commenced publication
of the Herald we have played a
straight and fair game. No one
has wilfully suffered an injury.
We have praised more often than
criticized. Sometimes an individual requests an impossibility, and,
being in a truculent mood or naturally narrow minded we  are con-
Big Demand for Copper
To Continue
There is no reason to believe
that there will be any diminution
in the world's consumption of oopper, now the most important of all
metals, next to iron. On the contrary there are many indications
that consumption will increase as
the years go on. The requirements
of the current remarkable industrial expansion in North America
and through Great Britain and in
Europe is certain to create demand
for copper that will tax the capacity of producers to fill.
This is all to the good for British
Despite the tremendous output
of refined copper iu November of
last year, reaching as it did a total1
of 12,000,000 pounds higher than

Eighteen properties are in active

Practically every section of the

one or more properties working,

Even Gilbert's cheap tailor, disguised as a second trombone, could
not fumble the beat and the swing
in a song of the sea—simply because sea music comes as naturally
to the mariner as lullabies to a
mother, and because its spirit is
so infectious. It comes naturally
because the sea chanty lightens
the sailor's work and because from
the very beginning of navigation
it has fostered teamwork and good
feeling among seamen. But the
sailor chanties passed away with
the sailing ships. They were the
seamen's working choruses whose
utility declined when steam crowded the canvas-driven craft from
the sea. There still remains a
great and largely ungathered
treasure of Bea music which today
is remembered only by grizzled
sailors of clipper ship days. But

failing memories, the tunes and

to be preserved for the future.
This constitutes the real significance ot the forthcoming Sea Music
festival in Vancouver at the Vancouver Hotel from Jan 23 to 26;
and it is at once a meed and a
compliment for this great port
facing the broad Pacific.
During these four days will be
heard the finest music inspired by
the sea from the time of the Vikings down to the present day. Tho
programs, arranged by Harold
Eustace Key, director of Canada'!
major music festivals, will recapture the full flavor of the chanties
which having passed their youth
in sailing ships of the seven seas,
now find a haven for their old ago
in concert hall and schoolroom.
Two groups of songs will be presented in stage settings—"The
Order of Good Cheer," incorporating old French chanties of Acadia
harmonized by Dr. Healey Willan
of the Toronto Conservatory; and
"On the Deep, Deep Sea," introducing famous deep water chanties
arranged and staged by Capt.
Frederick William Wallace.
Distinguished singers, fine instrumentalists and well-trained choirs
will appear at the nightly concerts
in the Vancouver Hotel. The singers include John Goss, famous
English baritone; Jeanne Dusseau,
Canada's great lyric soprano, lata
of the Chicago Opera; Finlay
Campbell, Ottawa baritone, familiar with Hebridean sea-songs;
Marion Copp, rising young contralto of Vancouver; Poul Bai,
Danish baritone with a repertory
of Viking songs; and Ulysse Paquin, French-Canadian basso, with
songs of the voyageurs of New
France. Others are the Hart House
Quartet, Canada's most famous
group of instrumentalists; the
Vancouver Scottish Orchestra, tha
Philipino Orchestra of the linei
Empress of Russia, the North Vancouver Choral Society, and threa
interesting groups organized by

The programme opened by a
splendid selection of Scottish Airs,
played by the Anyox Amateur Orchestra under the able baton of Mr.
Stewart Steel. Rev. J. Dewar then
gave a brief resume of the life of
Robbie Burns, Scotland's National
Bard, the anniversary of whose
birth was being celebrated the world
over. Burns he said was not an
Idealist but a Realist and had endeared himself by writing his poems
of human nature in the language of
the people.
Mr. Dewar's talk was followed
by a recitation of Burn's "Ode to the
Daisy," Miss May Barclay. After
which the curtain rose on the first
act of the play picturing a scene in
the home of Mr. John Thomas Tibbs,
Golden City. The setting of the
stage brought much credit to Mr.
R. Roberts and certainly added to
the success of the play. Special
mention should be made of the acting of Mrs. Patrick and Mrs. Dunn
who played as if born to their parts.
At the close of the first act, Mrs.
J. Dewar rendered the solo ''My
Ain Folk" with very pleasing effect
and as an encore she sang "Mary"
which was also well received.
Mr. S. A. McPherson with his
usual pep, sang "Where has Scotland found her Fame," and as an
encore "Highlanders March."
The second act Aunt Susan's
arrival was full of contrast and
humour. A selection of popular airs
was then given by the orchestra
which also came in for an encore,
after which Mr. D. McRitchic
mounted the platform in Kilt and
Tam-O-Shanter rendering two
Scotch ditties to the amusement of
all, he was accompanied by Mr. F.
Dresser on the piano.
Act three was gone through with
undiminished zeal and the arrival
of several visitors in the characters
of Mr. Guy Coggs, Mrs. Highborn,
Mrs. Suggs, Miss Wizer and the
Honorable Senator Smith was amusing and mirth provoking Mr. N.
Redman then sang in his best Scotch
accent "Lassie O Mine" and as an
encore "Annie Laurie."
Act four was full of variety as all
the fifteen players took part in a
farewell social to Aunt Susan in
which after the presentation of a
watch and chain to Aunt Susan,
everyone lauds her for her good
deeds and personally thank her, a
short programme is gone through
in which Mrs. Jos. Anderson is requested to sing the "Second Minuet." Miss Nan Dunn gave the
Highland Fling in costume. Mrs.
J. Dunn even after her strenuous
part in the play sang "The Auld
Scottish Songs." After which Miss
M. McGuire surprised many by the
quality of her voice. "God save
the King" brought to a close a very
pleasant evening.
