High Gracie Ore Being Anyox Moose Entertain
Developed on
Mayflower
The Mayflower group of claims,
whioh are situated down the inlet
about three miles south of Alice
Arm, has been consistently developed during the past year, Development has proven that the property contains a considerable amount
of high grade ore, and it is very
probable that the Mayflower will
shortly be a shipping mine.
A tunnel, 62 feet in length has
been driven. It has been drifted
on the ore, and shows the vein to
be 3 feet wide. The tunnel was
driven north from the contaot with
tbe granite rook, and shows a
fissured zone, much altered or decomposed, in which small dyh'n
are seen. In this tunnel some lenticular shoots of ore were found,
which consisted of quartz aud
galena, zinc blende and'pyrite both
coarse and tine grained. A crosscut tunnel, which has been driven
across the ore zone from the foot-
wall to the hanging wall shows the
zone to be at least 15 feet wide and
strong with much gouge on the
walls.
A sample of ore taken across a
width of three feet on the foot wall
has given the following high
returns: 28 ozs. silver; 20 per oent,
lead aud $8.00 gold per ton. From
another sample taken from six
inches of ore ou the hanging wall,
the following result was obtained;
197 ozs. silver; 25 per cent lead and
$12.00 in gold. While a sample
sent out for analysis, which was
taken from five tons of ore gave
returns of 77.82 ozs. silver; 19.2
per cent lead; 8 per cent zinc; 0.20
per cent copper; and 0.46 ozs. gold
| per ton.
The Mayflower is owned by G.
Bruggy and Win. McFarlane of
Alice Arm, and it is their intention to continue development work,
until the property has been devel-
ioped into a steady shipper. It is
ideally located, being only about
one-and-a-half miles up the hill
jfroni the old Molybdenum Camp,
whioh is on the beach. It was the
•'intention to ship several tons of ore
this winter to the smelter, but
lowing to the absence of snow, this
jpj'an has been abandoned.
A first-class trail has been constructed from the beach to the
mine. Good camp buildings and
an ore shed have also been built,
and eight tons of ore are stored in
the shed.

Anyox P. T. A. Hold
Monthly Meeting
A very successful meeting of the
Parent-Teaoher Association was
held on Tuesday January 19th.
Mr. R. Armour, the President read
a survey of the P. T. A. Convention held in Vanoouver last year,
which covered the various activities
of the Association throughout the
whole of the Province.
The P. T. A. of Anyox had expended $1000 for the various school
benefit, but owing to the lack of
spaoe a full detailed report will be
given next week. Mr. R, Manzer
made an announcement that at the
next regular meeting, a few short
talks on the B. C. School Survey
would be given. A very pleasing
musical programme was enjoyed
by all. Those taking part were
Mr. W. Grant, Mr. J. Mitchell and
Mr. R. Armour and Mrs. Kirby.
It was decided at this Meeting
that a masquerade Danoe would be
held in the Recreation Hall, on
February 15th.

Tile No. 2 Pathfinder troops, of
Anyox, opened their New year programme with what was in the way
of being a novelty, to wit: A
mother and Scout banquet. This
was held in the basement at the
Union Church, on Friday January
15th. and was voted a great success. The mothers of the scouts
turned out splendidly at the invitation of the Scoutmaster Mr. W.
R. Mnrdook.
The evening was spent—after
justice had been done to the good
things provided by the Scoutmaster—in speech and song, those taking part in the speeches being the
Scoutmaster; Mr. W. Barclay,
chairman of the troop committee:
Mrs. McAllister, Mrs. O. K. Dwyer,
Mrs. J. Cloke, Mrs. Talbot, and
Rev. W. Brayfield.
The business of forming an auxiliary committee of the Ladies was
enthusiastically taken up and Mrs.
Dwyer was appointed convenor.
A Happy Snappy Dance
By Mine Club
Happiness featured the dance
staged by the Mine Club on Saturday evening, for a jollier gathering
has seldom assembled as did for up
the hill that night. Lack of advertising probably accounted for a
smaller crowd than usual. As only
a few friends at the beach knew of
the date. - The Melodians played
with their accustomed vim, receiving repeated encores during the
evening. Sure fire "hits" were
"Sarah of the Shoe Shine Shop"
and the "Repast Band March," the
latter being demanded no less than
six times.

R. K. Neil, who was instumen-
tal in successfully developing the now
famous Premier mine, and whose
recent address we published last
week, spoke a lot of truth when he
said that a mine could not be developed from an office. Too often
has this policy been carried out with
disastrous results to the unlucky
shareholders and the district in
general. If mining is treated as
other business ventures, and conscientious men are in control, the
investors' chance of obtaining
returns from their money is far
greater than in many other lines of
business. During the early development stages of a property it is
more or less a gamble, but the risks
can be reduced to a minimum if
good judgement is used iu selecting
the property and sound business
principles used in its development
and operation. Some of the wealthiest men in the world derived
their riches from mining ventures
and the chances for enrichment are
as good today as they were fifty or
a hundred years ago.
,.,--If present plans are carried out
on the Flin Flon copper property
in Northern Manitoba, Canada
will have one of the largest copper
mines in the world within its borders. The price of copper now
seems to be stabilized at a price
when the big mining companies
deem it good business to develop
new fields. It is however, to be
hoped that too many of these new
fields will not be opened up in
different parts of the world, so that
the price of copper is again forced
down to such a level as to make a
shut down of the big plants inevitable. The price of copper
responds almost instantaneously to
the demand and production. If
production exceeds the demand,
down goes the price, and the big
companies are faced with the
alternative of depleting their ore
reserves with no profit to themselves or a partial or complete
shut-down of the piant both of
which are costly to investors and
employees.
Anniversary Service at
Anyox United Church
on Sunday
The second Anniversary Service
of the United Church was hold iu
the Church on Sunday January
16th. The Service opened by the
congregation singing tho Doxology.
There was a large attendance present. The sermon was delivered by
Bey. C. D. Clark, entitled "The
Church of God," this was very
interesting and instructive from an
educational point of view. During
the course of tho sermon it was
pointed out of what the world
owed to the Church in starting
and futhei'ing the means of education. It was pointed out that
during the medieval times, Monasteries all over the old world were
attended by those desirous of learning under the tuition of monks.
Robert Raikes was the first to
start Saturday and Sunday schools
whioh was the first growth of our
present schooling system. From
this it is very easy to follow that
the Church has alwys fostered education, such as art, music, etc. It
was also pointed out the great
work the Chinese missionaries have
accomplished in translating different langurges whioh have been the
means of carrying on commerce
and industry. At the conclusion
of his sermon Rev. Clarke made a
strong appeal for support for the
Church.
Seward, Alaska Is Enjoying
Spring Weather
Strawberry plants aud grass
crops growing in mild springlike
weather which is now prevailing.
It is raining and there is almost no
snow on the railroad this year,
except on the high mountain passes. The lack of snow is stopping
the contractors getting out ties.
and forcing the railroad to secure
.its supplies from Seattle.
Lack of Snow Hampers Work
Along C. N. Railway
With continued mild weather,
operators of tie camps all along the
railway line between Smithers and
Burns Lake faced the prospect of
being forced to close down early
last week, and at several points
the working force was reduced in
number through the absence of
snow to haul tho product or frost
to assist iu the bush work. While
the ground has been frozen in the
open spaces for some time, up in
the timber of the higher levels the
frost did not even penetrate the
ground, and with the mild weather
of past weeks the work has been
hampered by much standing
water.
The trouble with getting in on
the ground floor is that it so often
has a trapdoor into the cellar.

Volume of Copper Sales
Continue Small
Those that expected a sudden
rush of either buying or selling
after the holidays have been dissa-
pointed, as sales for the week have
been about the same as for a quiet
week in November or Deoember.
Some good orders, the largest of
which was a booking of 1,500 tons
by a telegraph company, were placed and additional substantial business seems to be only awaiting a
change in the market. Prioes have
shown little variation all week'*
most of the business at tho higher
freight rate points has been looked
at !<%!,, whereas Connecticut deliveries have sold at 14_o. Important concessions have in sonic
instances been made for deliveries
near refineries or for business that
is otherwise attractive, some copper
having been sold for as low as 14 c.
delivered. I» general, however, all
sellers are united in quoting on a
basis of 14|o. delivered Connecticut
points, regardless of time of shipment, much of the business has
been placed for January. February shipment, with somewhat less
call for March. Consumers are
not buying very far ahead, which
of course, makes the potential demand stronger and encourages
sellers in firmly maintaining the
price.
The foreign market has improved
to about the same extent as the
domestic. A small tonnage has
been sold by producers' agencies at
14.325c. c. i. f. with some business
reported by dealers at slightly
lower figures. German demand
continues disappointing.—Engin-

total dividend of f 1,600,000 covering this period. With this fourth
quarterly dividend included, the
Premier Gold Mining Co., operating the Premier mine in the Portland Canal distriot, will have paid

Big Explosion Rocks
Mining Town
With a blast felt for nearly 50
miles, and a shattering force that
wrecked many windows in the
business section of Jerome, a powder magazine of the United Verde
Copper Co. exploded on Dec. 20.
No lives were lost and no injuries
reported from the blast, in which
1,200 cases of powder, valued at
*40,000, exploded.
The explosion was felt in Pres-
cot, 55 miles distant, and in Humboldt. The detonation was not
loud, but the force of the blast sent
a column of black smoke into the
air for 800 ft. The force of the
concussion blew off the walls and
roof of a second magazine, a few
feet distant from the magazine
which exploded, but did not disturb
the 1,200 cases of blaok powder
within. The magazine which exploded was iu an old office building
on top of the hill. 300 feet above
and half a mile from the center of
Jerome.

Weather is Still
Being Enjoyed
The unprecedented mild weather
that has been experienced throughout the winter still continues.
Local hockey players have given
up all hopes of being able to
indulge in their favorite sport, now
that the month of January is
almost at an end. The continued
mild weather has been a great
boon to the Granby Co. as it has
enabled them to operate their big
hydro-electric plant uninterruptedly
throughout the winter. For this
they are very thankful, but anxiety
is being felt lest enough snow
should not fall to ensure them sufficient water throughout next
summer.

PRINCE RUPERT FISHING FLEET
PRINCE RUPERT, the terminus of the Canadian National Railways
in Northern British Columbia, has come to the fore of recent years
as one of the premier Ash-producing areas of the Dominion of
Canada. Prince Rupert halibut is known all over the American continent, and the industry has reached large proportions because of the
distribution service placed at the disposal of the fishermen at that port
by the Canadian National Railways.
The one essential in the fishing industry is the speedy marketing
of the fish after they are caught. By means of a rapid express service
over the Canadian National, halibut and other fish from Prince Rupert
are laid down in Winnipeg, Montreal, Toronto and other Canadian and
America cities very quickly after they are landed from the fishing
boats in Prince Rupert harbor.
Halibut fishery is the chief sea industry of Prince Rupert, and during 1922, 25,275,300 lbs, of halibut were landed at that port. In addition, 33,225,300 lbs. of salmon were caught and large quantities of
herring, cod, flat fish and crabs. The cod and herring fisheries, which
have scarcely been touched as yet, hold a great future.
The photograph shows a few of the hundreds of boats engaged in
the halibut fisheries out of the port of Prince Rupert.
