Big Christmas Dance by
Anyox Community
League
The annual Christmas dance
held under the auspices of the
Anyox Community League, is always a sign of Christinas being
near at hand. It is the commencement of the festivities and social
events of the smelter town and is
one of the outstanding dances of
the year.
This annual dance was held on
Monday evening at tho Recreation
Hall, and was marked by an unusually large attendance. The
hall was beautifully decorated
witli Christinas decorations, these
having been used with a lavish
hand, and with a striking effect.
A special ceiling design was a
feature of the decorations, and
-'--uivui color designs adorned the
walls, A large Christmas tree
beautifully decorated the stage,
which added a real Christmas
finish to the decorations.
A feature of the evening was
the cutting of a huge 3-tier Christmas cake by Mrs. Chas. Bocking.
After the cutting had been carried
out Mrs. Bocking was presented
with the knife by the president of
the League, Mr. Chas. McLachlan.
The music was supplied by the
Melodians of the Mine Club, and
the general opinion of. everyone
was that the boys from up on the
hill are musicians of rare skill, and
their rendering of music was exceptionally good.
A very appetising supper was
served at midnight, and dancing
continued until 2 a.m., when the
happy throng wended their way
home, thoroughly convinced that
as hosts the Community League
are second to none.
The officers of the League are
deserving of great praise for the
brilliant  suocess  of    their   1925
i Christmas dance, and special credit
| is due to secretary P. M. Kelley,
on whose shoulders fell the 'work
^of  organizing  and    carrying   it
f through to a successful finish.    He
(was ably assisted by the officers of
.the League who also spared no
pains to give the Christmas festivities a good send-off.
Following is a list of those . who
Jgave of their services.
Floor Manager: Mr. A. D. Niok-
lerson.

Children of Alice Arm
Enjoy Christmas Tree
The Christmas festive season
started in real earnest for the children of Alice Arm on Tuesday,
when tlie big annual Christmas
Tree and entertainment was held
in the Coliseum, commencing at
7 p.m.
From every point of veiw it was
undoubtedly the best Christmas
festival ever enjoyed by the children. The children's entertainment was of a very high standard
and the balance of the evening was
crammed full of mirth until the
hour of midnight.
Shortly after 7 p.m. the hall was
filled to capacity, and the evening's jollification was commenced
With the entertainment given by
the children. The programme
consisted of dances, recitations,
songs, etc. Every child was included, from the tiny tots up, and
the wonderful talent shown by
different children, won them
rounds of applause, and encores
were frequent. The high standard shown reflects great oredit
on the members of the entertainment committee, who worked so
hard in training the children, and
Mrs. J. Laidlaw deserves special
mention in this respect.
The hall was elaborately decorated, with festoons of evergreens,
and colored paper, and at the back
of the stage were the words, "A
Merry Christmas." worked in
colored paper, against a background of evergreens. At the left
of the stage stood a gigantic
Christmas tree, beautifully decorated, while piles of presents reposed in the vicinity.

Christmas Tree Given to
Patients Anyox Hospital
The Anyox Ladies' Hospital
Auxiliary saw that those who
were unfortunate enough to be inmates of the Hospital during
Christmas, did not miss all the
fun on this joyous oooasion.
On Thursday, the ladies of the
Auxiliary held a delightful entertainment for the inmates of the
Hospital. A recitation triologue
was given by Misses Barclay and
Eve, and Dr. D. R., Learoyd then
made the announcement that he
had just received word from Santa
Claus that he would arrive in a
few minutes.
The Doctor's information was
correct, for almost immediatly old
Santa Claus, in the person of Dr.
H. S. Trefrey walked in. For a
while he was a busy man handing
out his presents to all the patients,
and said  that he  would like   to
stay longer, but he had to finish     Jl>willle P'0'"'™ were thrown

Children Entertained by
Granby Company and
Community League
Following the big dance on Monday evening, the Anyox Community League and the Granby Co.
jointly entertained the children of
Anyox and their mothers to a
Christmas entertainment on Tuesday afternoon at the Recreation
Hall.
Two hundred and thirty children were present with their
mothers, and the ohildren enjoyed
themselves to the limit. Games
were played, and each child received a present.
Ice cream and cakes of all kinds
from the Smelter Bakehouse were
in great demand, and every child
received its fill. There was lots
to eat and drink and lotR to spare,
wliich is as it should be on such an
occasion. HH
As the closing chorus was being
lustily sung, good old Santa Claus
burst into the room, aud amidst
screams of delight from the
younsters, commenced to hand out
his presents.
Each child was presented with a
handsome gift. The older children
receiving useful presents and the
younger ones, dolls and toys, and
in addition a bag of candy, nuts
and oranges was given to eaoh
child.
When Santa had emptied all
his sacks and left for other parts
to distribute his Christmas cheer,
an onslaught was made on the refreshments.
The refreshment committee now
took up the burden, and the serving of the large number present
was carried out expeditiously.
The children were served first, and
glasses of milk, sandwiches, and
piles of oake needed no magic
wand in order to make them disappear. After the children had been
made comfortable inside, the adults
followed suit
At the conclusion of refreshments, the floor was cleared   for
dancing, and everyone present
rounded off the evening's enjoyment by tripping the light fantastic until the hour of midnight.
The music was kindly supplied by
the, Alice Arm orchestra, and was
of the usual high standard.
The ladies of Alice Arm were
solely responsible for the splendid
success of the evening's entertainment. Every member of each
committee did their utmost to ensure a good time for the children,
and that their object was attained
was evidenced by the happy faces
of the children throughout the
evening.
The following ladies served on
the various committees:
Entertainment: Mrs. J.Graham,
Mrs. J. Laidlaw, Mrs. O'Connor,
Mr. Stevens, Mr. R. G. Gorbon.

Another Lease Taken on
Esperanza
In addition to the lease let on the
Esperanza a short time ago another one has been let on an ore
showing on another part of the
property. This lease has been let
to Messrs. Norman Fraser, Charlie
Lee and Tony Calfer, and they will
work on an ore showing a littlp
above and about 300 feet south of
the main workings. The lease expires at the end of May.
The ore vein on which this lease
has been' obtained was worked
with satisfactory results some
years ago, and considerable high
grade ore was taken out. Mining
has already commenced.
enjoyed and added greatly to the
entertainment.
On leaving, each child was presented with a big net bag of
candies, nuts, etc., which were
made up by Chas. McLachlan
and A. B. Morkill, President and
Vice-president of the Community
League.
In the evening about seventy
children of the age of 12 years and
over, were entertained seperately
at the Recreation Hall, and they
also were given a real good time.
Following the entertainment, a
dance was held at which the
youthful members thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Those assisting at these two entertainments were Mrs. O. K.
Dwyer, aud Messrs. Thomson,
Hutchison, and Ashton.
Granby Co. Taking Over
Golkeish Mine
Mr. H. W. Heidman has reported that steps are under way for
the transfer of the Golkeish Mine
to the Granby Co., who intend to
stope down for 125 feet the main
lead and by doing this it is estimated that this will give an additional 50,000 tons of quartz,
which is used at the smelter for
flux. This quartz aiso contains
values.
Tunnel Being Driven on
Wolf Property
The work of taking out ore from
the surface on the Wolf property
has been concluded, and Jack Fiva
has commenced the driving of a
tunnel, which will encounter the
ore underground.
It is anticipated that the ore
vein will be encountered at a distance of 100 feet from the portal
and which will give a vertical
depth on the ore of over 35 feet.
Owing to the dip of the ore, however, the stoping distance available
will be at least 70 feet.
A new blacksmith shop and ore
shed has been constructed near the
mouth of the tunnel, and everything is in readiness for the
winter's work.
The bond ou the property is now
held between Miss Cora Tollefsen,
and Messrs. Jack Fiva and Peter
Petersen. Pete Johnson, who
held a third interest, recently sojd
out to P. Petersen.

Before the next issue of the
Herald is off the press, we shall
have entered upon another
year. Looking back over the past
year we must admit that good fortune has been the lot of the people
of Anyox and Alice Arm. The
district has suffered no serious reverses and we can enter upon another year full of hope and optimism. During 1924 the big mine
and reduction plants of the
Granby Co. at Anyox have operated uninterruptedly, employing
over 1000 men, and was no small
factor in helping to attain a banner year for the mineral industry of
the province. The past few years
have been extremely trying for the
Granby Co., but it is hoped that
the past year will show a profit for
the company instead of a loss. It
such is the case, 1924 will be an
outstanding year for the district, as
it will again place the Granby Co.
on the dividend paying list, and
this will undoubtedly mean an expansion of operations in the north.
Fortune has also smiled upon
the Alice Arm district, and while
the past year did not witness a big
mining boom, steady progress has
been made All signs at present,
point to still more progress being
made in the mining industry during the coming year, and unless
we are mistaken bigger progress
will be made than the readers of
the Herald anticipate. More
mining properties are ready to
commence operations next spring,
than ever before, and 1925 will
outshine 1924 as much  as   the
latter did 1923. If we make
good progress each year, the
momentum will increase, and like
a snowball rolling down hill will
increase in size. Alice Arm is on
the high road to prosperity and its
citizens can enter the coming year
undismayed and unafraid.
We believe a British Columbian mining camp is the best place
in the world in which to live, and
we beleive that Alice Arm and
Anyox are the best mining camps
in British Columbia—or we
wouldn't be here. With good
prices ruling for all metals, and the
prospect of even better prices in
the future, with the mountains in
our immediate vicinity full of minerals waiting to be mined, why
shouldn't we be glad to live here.
But while we may all be glad to
live here we must not sleep; we
must boost the magnificent resources of the district all the time,
and with this parting advice, we
wish our readers—whether their
subscription is paid up-to-date or
not.

Toric Operations
Description of Mi
in
The issue oi' November 28th., of
the Ciiiiarliah Mining and Financial Review published! in London,
England, contains a detailed description of the Toric mine, which
is well written and illustrated,
showing a picture of the mine
buildings and Goat creek. The
latter being shown as a" future
source of power for a hydroelectric plant.
The article, which is lengthy,
commences witli a general description of the property, and terminates by outlining the future plans
of the Consolidated Homestake
Mining and Development Co., who
liave the property under bond.
Following are extracts, taken
from the article:
"In liis report at the end of August,
Mr. Gerhardi states that the "main
enrichment is in primary silver ores.
Tlie Toric is associated with a breccia
of barite, quartz, and jasper, and occasional calcite merging into quart'/,
at depth. Mineralization is deposited
throughout these fissures homogeneously, with increased enrichment
along fault planes, and small fractures
due to redeposition from surface
erosion, which throughout this district, has been profound. The native
silver characteristic of this redeposition in the proven mineralized condition within this vein came with the
original batholithic intrusion, and is
therefore of primary origin. Step
faulting, generally reversed, is pronounced on the west side of the Kitsault River or Dolly Varden occurrence, and has mainly a northerly
and southerly trend. The east or
Toric, condition shows no disposition
to excessive faulting, and is characteristically a more uniform deposit than
the Dolly Varden."
"He estimates that in the Toric claim
there are, as at present ascertained,
about 178,500 tons of ore above the
No.'l crosscut tunnel; that the vein
below the lowest workings to a depth
of 100 feet will produce a minimum of
119,000 tons; and the vein above the
lowest workings but beyond developed faces for a distance of 100 feet will
produce, a minimum of 178,000 tons of
ore, the ore throughout being of an
average value of $12 per ton. This
would make a total for this claim of
476,000 tons of ore of a gross value of
$5,712,000.    It is  noteworthy,   how
ever, that Messrs. Milken burg and
Oo., of Seattle, from three tests obtained: Gold, ,68 oz; silver, 17.80 oz;
lead, .34 per cent., making the total
value of $26.18 per ton, exclusive of
the lead values.
"It has been decided that the mill to
be erected shall be of 100 tons daily
capacity, and money for this purpose
has, we understand, been provided'
The rock excavation for the mill site
lias already been completed. Tests
having shown that by straight amalgamation 91 per cent, extraction of
tlie gross value can be obtained, this
process is to be adopted. In his report Mr. Gerhardi, fin the basis of a 50
ton mill, estimated results as follows1
Capacity, 1,350 tons per month; assay
value, $12 per ton; total, $16,200 per
month; cost of mining, including development, $2.30 per ton; ore treatment, $1.70; lost in treatment, 10 per
cent, per ton, $1.20; total, $5.20 per
ton. Profit, $6.80 per ton, or $9,180
per month, 'fills would represent a
gross return of well over 20 per cent,
per annum on the authorised capital
of the company. The increase in the
capacity of the mill should not only
double the output, but considerably
increase the profit per ton of ore milled. Of course, these estimates can
only be tested by the actual operation
of the mill."
A ilea and Hy flew into a flue;
"'Let us flee," said the fly,
''Let us fly," said the flea;
So they flew through a flaw in the
flue.
