Season of Mining
Activity in Progress
at Alice Arm
Work Being Done on
Numerous Properties   :
Due to the hot weather of the
I past few weeks,, the. snow is fast
1 disappearing from the hills, arid
J numerous prospectors are scouring
| the country Jor  hidden treasure
with -whioh they hope to  make
their fortune.   >
Claim owners are slinging their
j paoks and hiking for their respective claims, in order to do their
; assessment work, while others are
commencing  to  do   development
work as far as their finances will
•allow.   -
In view of the fact that the king
pin of the Kitsault valley is broken,
to wit, the Dolly Varden Railway,
I it is surprising the amount of work
i that has been outlined by property
I owners this summer.
'From the Kitsault Glaoier, which
[ is situate about twenty-five miles
I from town, to the Esperanza can
I be heard the sound of blasting as
I another vein' is" being developed.
J Aoross the bay at Lime Creek and
■ up the Illiance River Valley, the
| same scenes are being enacted, and:
^he work done this year, will without a doubt prove to the. mining
world that Alice Arm is one camp
in B. C. that can deliver the goods
without  professional  boosting or
[bragging.
The work of taking out high
grade.ore at the Esperanza is still
[being steadily proceeded with.
Drifting on the vein in the Baldy
tunnel is going ahead, and stoping
on this vein has been carried-a
distance of thirty feet. The width
of the vein in the stope is three
feet and is high grade ruby silver
and silver sulphides, The work of
bringing ore .down the hill will
shortly be commenced as the bunkers at the mine are nearly full.
The Esperanza looks better today
than it has done in its history.
On the Caribou Group at Lime
Creek, whioh property is situated
four miles from the Silver City
wharf, Miles Donald, Billy McLean
and Bert Dawson are busy extending the tunnel which has been
driven 50 feet, an additional 50
feet and the work done so far this
year has been highly satisfactory,
and proves that the ore values are
increasing. • The ore on this property runs high in molybdenum and
also carries silver values."" With
the price of molybdeum advancing
this property wil| no' doubt be in
the limelight in the near future,
Some fine,,speoimens of ore were
brought to town this week.
Gus Strombeok is busy driving
the tunnel he commenced last
summer, on the upper workings of
the Torio;
Playground
Improvements
for Anyox Children
At a special meeting of the
Anyox Parents-Teachers Association, held in the New Sohool,
Saturday, June 10th, a letter from
the Sports Committee giving those
present an approximate estimate
of the post of a board playground
was read. It is the intention of
the Association with - the co-operation of the Sohool Board to
proceed with the work of this
improvement as soon as possible, ao
that its facilities will be available
for the children during the greater
part of the summer holidays. The
new playground it is hoped will
not only serve for play arid games,
such as basketball during the
summer and fall, but will be used
as a rink during the winter season.
The Convener, of the Tag Day
Committee, Mrs. W. P. Eve, reported $112 collected last week.
This splendid sum, together with

Price of Copper
on the Up-Grade
With the price of copper hovering around the 14-cent mark, the
people of Anyox are again beginning again to sit up and take notice
and watch the daily quotations.
The following figures taken from
Mining Truth, Spokane, may be of
interest to our readers:
"It is said that German copper
cotnsumption is now running at
about 55 per cent of pre-war levels
so that any improvement in her
financial condition should lead to
very heavy purchases in this
market, which, as a matter of fact,
is the only one available. France
has been the largest individual
buyer of late, although Great
Britain, Norway, Sweden and Italy
have been, buying in greater
volume."       . ~
Stocks on hand in the United
States, January 1,1922, were: re-
fiued, 459,000,000 pounds and 283,
000,000 blister and material in
process of refining."
May sales, foreign and domestic,
are estimated at 200,000,000
pounds, bringing foreign and domestic sales for the first five
months of the year to 690,000,000
pounds, or an average of about
140,000,000 pounds a month. This
compares with average sales
. during the first six months of
1921 approximating 115,000,000
pounds, or an increase in sales of
about 25,000,000 pounds a month."
As to the surplus now on hand,
competent authorities, including
the head of the Guggenheim selling
agency, believe that it will be
wiped out before two months have
passed, or at about the time the
big porphyry output will be available for the market. The recovery
of the metal has been little short of
astonishing, and with reconstruction and optimism now evident
everywhere, it seems certain that
the dark days have passed with
every probability of sustained prosperity under full production
conditions."
Mining Notes
It is proposed to, drive a 1250-
foot tunnel on the Mamie property,
near Smithers, this summer to tap
the vein at a depth of four hundred
feet. The work will take about
four months. -,
The annual report isssued by the
Tonopah Belmont Development
Company, who owns and operates
the Surf, Inlet mine, Princess
Royal Island, says: the net operate
ing profit for the year" was but
$56,996.43. 134,570 dry tons of
ore were milled during the year,
having a gross value of $ 927,163.25
and the average value was $6.89
cents per ton.
From the ore milled, 11,168.93
tons of concentrates were produced
having a total assay value of
$827,078.64, or $74.05 per ton.
Drilling for coal at Copper River
near Smithers, will commence on
June 25th, and it is expected that
ore will be encountered at a depth
of 600 feet. The drilling will be
done the Robinson Company, Vancouver, for the Yorkshire Trust Co.
The Silver Standard mine, near
Hazelton has been closed down.
Work will be re-commenced in
July, when the tailings will be run
through the mill, and a new power
plant'will be installed at the mine.
Since the first of the year about
a thousand tons of ore have been
mined and milled and shipped to
Trail smelter.

Shriners & Rotarians  *
from United States
to Visit Canada
Two important bodies of Shriners
and Rotarians from the United
States will visit Canada, travelling
by the Canadian National during
the month of June.
The 48th Annual Imperial
Council of Shriners is being held
in San Francisco.
At the conclusion of the Session,
to be held in San Francisco, the
itinerary is by train to Seattle,
where the Steamship "Prince
Rupert" will be taken, June 22nd,
for the 800 mile sail through the
famous inside passage to Prince
Rupert. From Prince Rupert
the • trip will be continued
east over the lines of the Canadian
National railways through Mount
Robson and Jasper Parks. Stop
overs will be made at Jasper in
order to give the party a chance to
view the wonder features of Canada's largest National Park. On
the journey through the* prairie
provinces, stops are to be made at
Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa and
Montreal.
The Third District, New York
Rotary Club, at the conclusion of
the International Associations of
Rotary Clubs, being held in Los
Angeles, Cal., will make the return
trip by the same route, leaving
Seattle on June 18th, making stop
over at all important points, reaching Ottawa on Tuesday, June 27th.
The fact that these important
bodies of business men from the
United States are making these,
trips through Canada, is a splendid
recognition of the attractiveness
of Canada for the tourist and the
Canadian National Route through
Canada.

The Gas Eaters put the Elks to
sleep on Thursday evening with
a score of 12 to 1 when the rival
baseball teams met at the Ball
Park.   Nuff Sed.
Kenneth Ferguson, Exalted
Ruler of the Victoria Lodge, B, P.
0. Elks arrived in town last
Sunday, and spent the week with
the boys of the local lodge.
Now that the summer is here
our thoughts turn to a nice little
gurgling brook, a fishing pole, a
dozen of beer, and a nice big shady
tree.   That's the life!
This paper has now been published one year, and with your
support, we shall, like the little
gurgling brook, go on and on
forever.
The Reading Room at the; Elk's
Hall is now equipped with all
kinds of first-class reading material
and a writing table. Several easy
chairs have also been added.
The Elks are putting on a big
smoker at the Elk's Hall, on Sat-
June 17th. A first class program
has been arranged which includes
boxing bouts, wrestling, comedy
boxing, songs, etc.
Anyox Smelter produced 29,970,
651 pounds of copper in 1921. In
1920 the production was 25,744,328
pounds. The Granby Company is
one of the very few copper companies that turned out more metal
in 1921 than it did in 1920.
We regret to state that there
will be no paper next week, owing
to the fact that this is our 52nd.
issue, and as there are a number
of subscriptions in Anyox now due
we intend to visit the Smelter town
and renew acquaintances.
An eight hour shift was instituted yesterday, on the construction
work at the new storage dam, in
place of ten hours. Time-and-a-
half will be paid for all. over-time..
Thirty men arrived on Thursday
from Vancouver to ""work on the
dam.   .
G. Wadhams, hoist operator at
the Coal Dock, who has just come
out of the Hospital after an attack
of rheumatism, went south on
Monday's boat for a few months.
He finished his rheumatism cure
at the Anyox barber shop Turkish
baths, and speaks very highly of
the treatment.
.Surveying for the site of the
proposed new concentrating mill
will commence in a few days, and
work on the foundations will probably start this year.
It, is anticipated that the mill
will be erected either west of the
smelter hear the flue dust dump,
or north of the smelter on the high
line to the mine.
Mr. Dryden would like to know
who has been attempting to teach
his chiokens to smoke. When the
fire alarm sounded last Sunday and
the news spread that Mr. Dryden's
chicken house was on fire, "was the
first suspicion that his chiokens
were careless with, matches. Fortunately the devouring element
was arrested before any damage
was done, so Mrs. Dryden will
roast her chickens one at. a time
when desired.
