Unusual Large & Varied
Programme Features
A. C. L Smoker
While the crowd wasn't nearly as
big as the entertainment warranted
those attending the Smoker in the
Beach Gymnasium on Wednesday
night last certainly enjoyed every
minute of the programme.
Just before the time set for the
opening number, the Panatrope
rendered several musical selections.
Commencing the list of events
President Cutler first called on the
orchestra, composed of Messrs.
Dresser, Armstrong, Evans and
Jones, to perform, which they did
to the complete satisfaction of the
gathering.
Following this, two midgets,
Leslie Murdoch and Bobby Kent
boxed enthusiastically for a brace of
rounds, being followed by Steve
Jones and Henry Deeth in saxophone and euphonium duets, after
which another good boxing bout
was staged by Ivor Davis and
Stewart Barclay. Making a hit
with his banjo selections, Sid Armstrong entertained with a number of
hits. While the mat was being
spread in the ring, the Panatrope
was again heard in a number of
appropriate selections, refreshments
being served while the wrestling pad
was adjusted. Smokes also were
freely distributed.
The wrestling bout was between
Albert Hanson and Maxwell Patrick, the boys displaying no mean
knowledge of the mat game.
The latter part of the evening
was devoted to selections by the
Moose Orchestra, songs by Messrs,
Hegerty and Varnes, as well as
two really good "goes" with the
mitts, Messrs Ruckhaber and Hooper giving and taking punches at a
fast clip. The final bout was between Messrs. Deeth and Lewis,
and was a fitting finale to a good
evening's sport.
The Community League is indebted to the following for assistance
rendered in connection with the
smoker: all those who took part
and Messrs. D. McVicar, R. Deeth,
C. Harmon, George Corckle and
Dr. Trefry. Mr. Corckle was the
third man in the ring fot the main
bouts and Dr. Trefry fulfilled the
duties of timekeeper in his usual
capable way. The Councillors of
the Community League acted as
hosts, serving the eatables and refreshments, and nobody was overlooked.
Close Games Witnessed
In Basketball
Clashes
Three games were staged at the
Beach Gymnasium on Friday evening last. The first bringing together the Public School and High
School second team. The former
being the winners of a very close
and well contested match. The
final score being 23-21.
In the second contest the High
School took the measure of the
Rinky Dinks to the tune of 53-18.
The High School boys proved to be
altogether too fast for their opponents. The losers however fought
bravely but lacked the finish of the
winners.
The teams were:
High School: O'Neill, 1, J. Barclay 7, McDougall 19, McMillan 10,
Asimus 10, Steele 6.
Rinky Dinks: E. Barelay 6, T.
Cloke 2, McDonald S, Dresser 2,
Docherty, Carney, Wilson 3.
In the Senior tilt the Concentrator defeated the Store-Office quintette 35-23. The old adage of practice makes perfect was well proven
in this game, the losers showing
that they need much practice in the
future if they expect to make progress in games to come. The winners well deserved the victory on
the play, showing a nice brand of
combination which had their opon
ents baffled.
The teams lined up as follows:
Concentrator: Musser 6, Mc-
Conachie* McDonald 16, McLeod
7, Hooper 6, Lindgren, McKay.
Store-Office: Peters 8, Mclntyre,
Hertman 3, Spencer 2, Brown 7,
Stewart 3.
T. Asimus handled the whistle
for all three games.

Winter Programme Is
Outlined on The
Silver Cord
The Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines
Ltd. have decided to concentrate
development work this year on the
Silver Cord property. Work on
the Eagle and LeRoy was suspended a short time ago aud will be
resumed in the spring.
A crew of men will be employed
at the Silver Cord throughout the
winter, and nine tons of supplies
have been transported to the property. Operations at the mine are
in charge of A. McGuire.
A new dining room and cookhouse, a new blacksmith and machine shop and a new powderhouse
have been completed during the
past month on the property, also a
new underground ventilating
system installed.
During the winter it is proposed
to drive No. 2 level on the Silver
Cord a further distance of 700 feet
connecting it with No. 1 level by a
vertical upraise of 110 feet, also to
drive an upraise from No. 1 level
to the surfaoe, thus providing natural ventilation. As this work
will all be in ore a very considerable tonnage will be proved up by
spring.
May Serve as Jurymen on
Murder Trial
W. B. Bower and Art Beaudin
left on Monday for Prince Rupert,
being summoned as jurymen for the
Fall Assizes. It is probable they
may be picked as jurymen on the
the case of Joe Sankey, accused of
murdering Miss Loretta Chishblm
and already once convicted. It has
been claimed that a Prince Rupert
jury may be prejudiced against the
accused Indian. They will later
both leave for Vancouver.
During the week this district experienced the first snowfall of the
year, and at noon yesterday it
measured 2 feet N3 inches. The
storm followed two weeks of un-
precedented cold clear weather.
Badminton Gub  Hold
Tournament
The Badminton Club held their
first tournament of the season on
Sunday November 20th. in the Gymnasium. The tournament took the
form of a mixed doubles handicap.
Mrs. Crone and Mr. Bertman were
the winners. Mrs. M. J. Bryden
and Mr. Fred Brown second, and
Mrs. D. Roy and Mr. Brett being
third. Nine couples entered and
some very good games were played
during the afternoon. Tea was
served in the course of the afternoon
to the participants.
Development Work on
Zorka Property
Encouraging
Development work oarried on
this year on the Zorka property by
Antone Serbioh has placed that
property in an enviable position
Work to date has shown that it
contains appreciable bodies of high
grade ore and transportation problems are nil, as it is looated directly
on the Dolly Varden railway.
During this year the lower tnnnel was extended and open cuts
driven on surface showings.
There are two tunnels driven,
the upper of which is in 50 feet.
It was driven the entire distance
on an ore vein 16 inohes wide.
The ore is high grade carrying
oopper, silver and gold values.
The lower tunnel was commenced below the Dolly Varden railway.
It has been driven a distance of
106 feet. It follows an ore body 6
feet wide, 2/^ feet of whioh is high
grade oopper-silver-gold ore. The
ore body dips at an angle of about
75 degrees. It is proposed to extend this tunnel next year an additional 125 feet and drive a cross-
out to both walls.
Prospecting this summer was instrumental in locating another ore
body. It was discovered 60 feet
south of the present workings, and
its extent is not yet known. It
contains high grade ore and will
be developed by open outs next
summer.
The Zorka is owned by A. Ser
bioh, who did considerable work
this year. It is located at 12-mile
on the Dolly Varden Railway.
Its future is bright, and among its
many assets is the fact that ore
can be dumped on the railway
cars straight from the tunnel.
Mining at Esperanza
Mining at the Esperanza is being
carried on with a small crew of
men and will be continued throughout the winter. Norman Fraser is
in oharge of operations.
Low Metal Prices Cut
Profits of Granby
Company
Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting and Power Company for
the quarter ended September 30,
1927, reports a profit of $374,635
after expenses aud interest, but
before depreciation and depletion.
This compares with a profit of
$513,591 in the June quarter and
$595,565 in the third quarter of
1926.
Profit for the first nine mouths
of 1927 totalled $1,182,175 before
depreciation and depleting, against
$1,486,997 in the first nine months
of 1926. Stock outstanding totals
444,600 shares.
Production in the third quarter
was 13,259,896 pounds of copper,
an average of 4,453,299 pounds a
mouth. The average cost, f. o. b.
refinery was 9.887 cents a pound,
exclusive of depreciation of plant
and equipment, but inclusive of all
operating and general expenses,
with deductions for precious metal
values and miscellaneous income.
In the preceding quarter the
production was 14,800,125 pounds,
average 4,934,375 pounds a month
and the cost was 9.153 cents. Iu
first three months of this year the
output waal3,5b'3,591 pounds, average 4,521,197 pounds a month,
and cost was 10.374 cents.
J. T. Crabbs, president, states
that the copper market in July
reached its lowest level for the
year, and while improvement has
since occurred the market continues
unsettled and below that of last
year.   He adds:
"The Allenby mill near Princeton
B. C. is operating efficiently both
as to costs and tonnage handled,
the latter exceeding the anticipated
capacity at the time the mill replacement was planned.
"Improvements inaugurated at
Allenby earlier in the year have
been proceeding steadily and will
be completed about October 1.
Beneficial results are already manifest."

Miners Find High Grading in Ontario
Profitable
The Attorney General of Ontario
is continuing the clean-up of questionable brokerage houses, and last
week another concern, F. McLean
Smith & Company, having offices
at Toronto and Montreal, was
raided and ten men were arrested.
Operators of some gold mines in
Northern Ontario wish the Attorney General's department would
pay the same attention to high
grading, which is extensively carried on in the Porcupine and Kirkland Lake. They believe that considerable high-grading results from
the laxity with which the offence
is treated by the judges and juries.
A recent outstanding case was that
of W. P. Wilson, who was arrested
with over $25,000 worth of gold in
his possession, and who was known
to have disposed of other gold valued at $125,000. His sentence
consisted of only a $1,500 fine or
six months in jail. This has aroused
so much feeling that strong representations are being made to the
government to see that proper action is taken. Last week another
raid was carried out in Porcupine
by the local and provincial police
and ten men were arrested, several
of whom were found to have a substantial amount of gold in their
possessioii.
General Sutton   Will   Meet
British Financiers
General Sntton will sail from
New York early next month to
put his Peace River outlet plans
before British financiers.
In an interview he outlined his
proposal for linking up the P. G.
E. with the Peace River country.
Referring to the settlement
' scheme in conjunction with the
railway, General Sutton said a
half section of land would be turn
ed over to eaoh settler on an easy
twenty-year repayment terms and
farm implements and essentials for
breaking new ground would be
provided.   .
This Year's Mineral Output
Will be Greater
It is expected at the Mines De
partinent that the 1927 output of
minerals in British Columbia will
represent a larger tonnage than
ever before* The decline in prices
however, will probably reduce the
value below that of 1926.
Copper   Sales   Giving
More Satisfaction
Both domestic and foreign buying of copper have been excelled
during the week ending today, and
prices are better. Not for a long
time have there been two active
weeks in succession in the domestic
copper market. The past week,
however, not only follows a very
good week, but is the third in tlie
last four in which sales have been
excellent. Some 13fc. copper remained in the market on Thursday
but since then only a few small
sales were made under 13|oe. and
these were offset by occasional lots
which brought a little more than
the even f figure. Most of the
producers are asking 13.50c. today,
but business has been slim indeed.
A large proportion of the buying
was on account of wire-drawing
companies. This is an encouraging development because wire has
been the weak spot in the copper
market for several months. Most
of the business was for delivery in
November and December, but January and even February were represented. Copper Exporters advanced its price" again to 13.80c.
c. i, f., on November 8; offers in
the f. a. s. market are available at

the Treadwell mine, in Alaska,
died in New York on Nov. 6. For
years Mr. Treadwell had not been
active in the mining business. He
was 85 years old. The Treadwell
gold mines were believed to have
yielded more than $25,000,000 in
ore. They are at Douglas Island,
off the Alaskan coast, and with his
brother, James Treadwell, J. P,
Treadwell developed them.

of 1926, show an ' •
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods:   For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years, 1896 1900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five year?

Production Last Ten Years, $429,547,755
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square'miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed   by i
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological
Survey of Canada, Winch Building, Vancouver, are recommended as valuable sources of inform°tion.

New Smelter   Rumors
Still Rife
A new smelter will probably be
constructed on the coast within
the next two years, as a result of
the acquisition of the Rafuse olaims
on Howe Sound by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company, acoording to offioials of the
Chamber of Mines at Vancouver.
Besides the Rafuse property,
which is said to be rich in copper
ore, the smelting oompany holds
the Coast Copper property containing several million tons of copper,
the Sunlooh property on Vanoouver Island and other claims in the
Portland Canal distriot, including
the big Missouri. All these properties are in the development stage,
and work is being carried on energetically to the point of active production.

HIGHEST PEAK IN CANADIAN ROCKIES
THE Alpine Club of Canada will
this year hold its annual
camp at the foot of Mount
Robson, tbe highest peak in the
Canadian Rockies, which towers
18,068 feet above sea level.
Mount Robson Park, named from
the mountain which it surrounds,
is a favorite stopping place for
tourists from United States points
who make the Triangle Tour of the
Canadian National Railways, which
embraces Vancouver, Jasper and
Mount Robson Parks and Prince
Rupert with a journey over the in-
land seas of the Pacific coast on
one of the Canadian National
Pacific Coast Steamships.
Among other things, Mount Robson can be regarded as the most
frequently photographed mountain
in the whole of Canada, the Continental Limited of the Canadian National Railways stopping for five
minutes at the foot of this monarch of the Rockies in order that
tourists who are passing through
may secure photographs showing
its lofty, snow-capped peak.
Just outside of the boundaries of
tbe National Park is ont of the
finest big-game hunting grounds
of the continent, where Hack, cinnamon and grizzly bear abound and
where other big game, such as bighorn mountain sheep and mountain
goats are to be found in great
numbers. Hundreds of hunters annually make Mount Robson their
headquarters for their excursions
into ths passes of this region after
big game, for here excellent accommodation may be secured either
during the summer tourist season
or later in the fall when the hunters are out after their scarry.

Satisfactory Report on
Hospital Dance
The Anyox Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary held their regular meeting on
Monday, when the annual election
of officers took place. The meeting
was well attended, which augers
well for the future of this useful
and indispensible organization.
The report submitted of the
annual Hallowe'en Dance showed
that it was a big success in providing working funds for the coming
year's work.
The success of the dance is due
to a number of ladies who spared
no effort to attain this end. They
are: Mrs. W. F. Eve (convener)
Mrs. D. R. Leaioyd, Mrs. H. Patrick, Mrs. J. Cloke, Mrs. J. S.
Brayfield, Mrs. J. Wynne, Mrs. G.
S. MacDonald, Mrs. A. Cameron,
Mrs. W. E. Yard, Mrs. J. Murdoch,
Mrs. C. O. Fricker, Mrs. J. Swanson, Mrs. L. H. Wenerstrom, Mrs.
J. Barclay, Mrs. A. J. Kent and
Mrs. L. McKay. To the last named
lady special mention is due as it was
due to her efforts that everyone was
entertained by the bewitching music
during the supper intermission.
The Anyox Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary is deserving of the support of
everyone in Anyox. > They provide
many comforts fo^ the inmates of
the hospital, and the most robust of
us can not tell how soon we may be
a hospital inmate, bruised and
broken, and appreciating the little
comforts administered by this band
of big hearted women.

mining company desiring a bond.
