Winners of Anyox
Tennis Tournament
Mrs. J. Conway and Mr. H.
Ballion
Despite the faol that the rain
showers on Saturday morning
May 24, delayed the starting of
the Tennis Tournament until 11.15
a.m., the ployers were ready to
commence the moment the courts
were dry enough to permit their
playing.
Eleven games of twenty points
each were played, finishing at 7
p.m. with Mrs. J. Conway taking
the ladies first prize, her score
being 211 points out of possible
220. Mr. H. Baillon took gentle
man's first prize with possible 220
points.
The players were much indebted
to Mr. Ted Mahon, of -the Hotel
also to Mr. Harris, of the Canadian
Bank of Commerce, who substituted for two members that were unavoidably absent.
The success of the tournament
was due chiefly to the splendid
co-operation of those taking part
also to the secretary of the Tennis
Cluli, Mr. George Lace, and Mr.
R. H. Manzer who devoted much
time in arranging the programme
for this new innovation in local
tennis circles.
Prizes were presented by Mrs.
Eve who made a few brief remarks
appropriate to the occasion.
Big Log Boom Leaves
Alice Arm
The first boom of logs to leave
the camp of the Abbotsford Logging Co. was shipped to Ocean
Falls on Monday, when the tugboat Cape Scott left with 1. million feet.
There are still three million feet
in the water and this amount will
be increased to four million feet
when the logs from the camp of
E. J. Trembly are boomed, which
will be in about two weeks.
The tug returned on Thursday
night for another boom of logs,
having anchored the first boom
down the coast.
Homestake Mine Will

score after working the ball right
up to the goal., The score was
Mine 5, Beach 3.
The ball game Friday night

For Atlin
Edmund John Conway, mining
engineer ,was unanimously chosen
as the candidate for the Atiin constituency, at the Conservative
Convention at Anyox, on Thursday.
Mr. Conway is a native son. He
received his early education in the
public schools of the province at
Chernainous. After being in

lines and later, Deputy Inspeotor of
Customs at Ladysmith, he departed
to Montreal and took a course in
mining. After completing a second
course, he joined the staff of the
Granby Co. in 1912 and has worked
for them ever since. At present he
holds the position of field engineer.
At the public meeting following
the convention, Rev. J. B. Gibson

Anyox Empire Day
Dance
At the conclusion of the sports
programme on Saturday May 24,
the dance given by the Anyox
Community League in the Gymnasium, was the centre of attraction.
The orchestra consisting of
Messrs. Cole, at piano, White,
violin and E. Waterman traps,
excelled themselves, and not a
dull moment prevailed throughout
the evening. Confetti and serpentine played a prominent part and
the refreshments were above the
usual standard.
The home waltz brought to an
end one of the most enjoyable
festivals that Anyoxites have experienced for some time.
After a series of olose and excit<
ing games the Alice Arm Empire
Day Tennis Tournament was won
by Mrs. R. F. McGinnis and Mr.
C. Warner.
Mr. James McAleenan, an old
resident of Alice Arm was in town
for a few days during the week.

High-Rigger Tops Giant
Spruce Tree
One of the giant spruce trees of
the Kitsault flats lost its head on
Tuesday when D. McQueen, high-
rigger for the Granby Co. took off
the top 140 feet from the ground.
The remaining portion whioh will
be used as a spar tree was 20 inches in diameter at the cut.
It stands about 1200 feet in the
woods from the camp. Quite a
number of people from town were
on hand to witness a high-rigger
at his perilous work, and a number
of photographs were taken at
different stages of the work.
The first boxing tournament
to be,staged in Alice Arm, was
held at the Coliseum, on Empire
Day at 8 p.m.
One hundred and thirty four
paid for admission, and so great
was the enthusiasm shown that it
is probable the promoters will
stage another tournament during
the summer.
Among the spectators were
several veterans of the ring;
young hopefuls who expect some
day to achieve pugilistic honors,
and a sprinkling of the fair sex
were also present.
Three juvenile prliminaries were
held pri.or to the main bouts.
The first was between Billy Ness
and Jimmy Ness. The second:
Teddy Kergin and Roy Bakke.
The third being between two
Anyox lads: Robt. Moffatt and
Farnell.
The first main bout was an exhibition between Gordon of Anyox _
and Tom Sherman of Alice Arm.
Gprdon substituting for Archie
Smith who could not come,over
from the smelter town. It was an
interesting bout with Sherman
the aggressive man throughout
Gordon being outclassed.
The next bout was where the ,
heavyweights got busy. Ed.
(Battling) Hill, 210 pounds, and
Sam (Mixer) Wiiistrom, 178
pounds, being the contestants.
This bout was full of surprises and
thrills, for the Mixer started to
mix 'em up at the break-a-way of
the hand-shake. He landed with
the right in quick succession,
followed by a clinch, and the
referee who attempted to seperate
them got a near K. O. from a
blow intended for the battler.
The fight was stopped when it
was seen that the - Marquis of
Queensbury rules were being torn
up, but the crowd were satisfied
with the exhibition and that's
everything.
The last bout; the main event of
the evening was a high class exhibition between Ed. Craggs,
Anyox, and C. Drennan, Alice
Arm. The weight of both contestants was 140 pounds. A good
exhibition of the art of self defence
was put up by both,
and at the end of a snappy three-
round contest, Craggs was given
the decision.
Mr. S. Dumas was the announcer, and he made a short speech
at the opening of the tournament.
Frank Bishop was referee: of the
preliminaries, while Jimmy Trinder
held down the same position for *
the main bouts. G. W. Bruggy
was timekeeper. ALICE   ABM   AND   ANYOX   HEBALD,   Alice   Arm.   Saturday,  May 31, 1924

HIGHEST PEAK IN CANADIAN ROCKIES
The fact that the government
will repair the right-of-way of the
Dolly Varden railway track, so
that pack horses can travel from
Alice Arm to Camp 8, is welcome
news to the people of the town.
The Dolly Varden railway is the
only   means   of    communication
with   the upper Kitsault valley,
and when this route is not available for transportation, the death
knell for mining in Alice Arm has
been rung.    It would be extremely satisfactoty if the government
could  put the railway in a state of
repairs for the hauling of supplies
by hand-car or motor power, or
force the owners to do so.   The
latter policy would be far better,
as it might force the hand of the
owners to sell their mining properties or work it themselves.    If the
owners refused to repair the railway and operate it, it may be
possible for it to revert to  the
government, who could then convert it into a first-class auto road,
at   a   reasonable   expense.   As
owners of   the railway  right-of-
way the government would possess
an asset which would shortly pay
huge dividends, tapping as it does
the richest mineral area in British
Columbia.
Annual Report of\
Granby Mining
Company
We should all be interested in
the prosperity of the town of
Alice Arm. What good citizen
is not? A good deal of the prosperity of any town depends on the
local support received. We are
only casting bread upon the waters
when we boost for our town.
We do not need to concern ourselves about who holds the title to
certain properties. All instrumentalities which minister to the
comfort, service, and education of
our citizens are assets of the town
and its people. Encouragement of
citizens to go ahead and spend
their money to furnish service,
necessities and comforts for other
citizens means progress and growth.
Such activities need to be encouraged in order that they might
succeed. When any individual
enterprise succeeds it means that
the town is forging ahead. Let
us put • our desire for further
growth and development in concrete form by resolving to do
these things.
Best cure for longing for the, old
home town is to go back there and
try it again.
The annual report of the Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting
& Power Co. Ltd. has been pub-
ished, and following are the most
interesting portions of the report.
Summarizing the results and
activities of the past year, Col.
Grabbs says:
Plant    Additions.   The   const,
ruction  program   is substantially
finished.    With  the completion of
the storage dam, cheap power is
now assured  throughout the year,
except in extreme emergency, to
meet   which   (and   for    heating
purposes) the steam plant will be
held  in reserve.    Shop,   hoisting,
air and  power facilities have been
rounded out to supply anticipated
needs.   Future smelting of barren
quartz for flux has been eliminated
by   equipment of the "Outsider"
mine, now in operation, as is also
the    new   concentrator   mill   at
Anyox.   While all of these factors
make for lower costs, completion
of the Anyox concentrator is of
particular   advantage   in that it
solves   troublesome   metallurgical
problems, makes available additional ore not yet incorporated as a
part • of   reserves,   and   increases
former plant capacity by upwards
of 30 per cent.
Property Additions.   Your Company has acquired  through exchange of Granby stock, 99.75% of
the outstanding stock of the Allenby Copper Company, Ltd. (N.
P. L.) and control management of
the property was assumed May 17,
1923.   Diamond      drilling  ' and
development have been earned on
at the mine, mill aud mine equipment    has    been    reconditioned,
heavy rolls have been added to the
crushing plant, and Dorr tank installation provided for recovery of
waste   process   water,   including
flotation reagents.   The property
will be kept in readiness for operation, which will be commenced at
the earliest date deemed expedient.
During 1923 earnings were adversely   affected by   low   copper
market  for the last half of the
year;   by   two    wage   increases,
operative over a major portion of
the year; by material and unavoid
able expense in repairing damages
occasioned by fire and flood (with
further loss incident to shut down
created  thereby),   and by   plant
overhaul    program.   Considering
these additions to costs, the results
obtained are better than the record
of   1922, and were accomplished
with a net reduction of less than
4% in known ore reserves.   It is
gratifying to add that costs for the

THE Alpine Club of Canada will
this year hold its annual
camp at the foot of Mount
Robson, the 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-
_P_fl
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 I
the National Park is one of the.
finest big-game hunting grounds
of the continent, where black, cinnamon and grizzly bear abound and
where other big game, such as bighorn mountain sheep and mountain
goat3 are to be found in great
numbers. Hundreds of hunters annually make Mount Robson their
headquarters for their excursions
into the 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 qaarrjr.

four months ended March 31,1924,'
are very appreciably leas than the
beat average heretofore made over
an equal period of time.
Your combined properties have
now a capacity of 60,000,000
pounds per annum, equivalent to
174 pounds of copper per share of
Granby stock outstanding.
According to statistic*!, believed
reliable, this per share capacity is
exceeded in North and South
America by but one property of
importance. With plant and
equipment in esc silent shape and
an organization replete with valuable employees of long service,
reasonable copper markets alone
are necessary to insure return of
substantial earnings.
Development work was as foil
ows: Hidden Creek Mine 6,315
feet.   Rambler Mine 295 feet.
Diamond drilling totaling 18.-
289 feet was done on the Hidden
Creek Group.
Reserves. Through diamond
drilling and development work
there were added to the high grade
reserve, 340,000 toiis. There were
mined from the high grade 695,290
tons, leaving a balance of 8.600,700
tons in the high grade reserve, of
2% copper.
Supplementing this, there has
been segregated an additional
reserve, too low in grade to he considered as smelting ore, but which
will be mined and concentrated together with parts of the high
grade reserve. This segregation
consists of 1,440,700 tons of 1%
copper and is susceptible of increase, both through mining operations and economic conditions.
Maple Bay Group—"'Outsider."
Underground work consisting of
sohie 1,100 feet of drifting and
raising was continued throughout
the year. A reserve of some 500,
000 tons of "probable" silicious ore
running perhaps 2.5% copper is in-
lieated from present work, with
known additional tonnage yet to
Se developed. The property has
been equipped with air equipment,
aerial tram and loading dock,
buildings, etc., and shipments to
Anyox commenced early in 1924.
Acquisition of this property
eliminates further use of barren
quarts', as flux.
"Eagle" and "Anaconda"
Groups, These claims are held in
bond, 914 feet of diamond drilling
having been done on the 'Eagle"
during the year 1923, indicating a
considerable tonnage of fair grade
oopper ore. Additional drilling
will he done on both claims during
1924, in order that decision regarding them may be readied before
the first payment beoomes due.
Construction—The new dam on
Falls Creek was completed and
filled late in 1923. This structure
is 136 feet high and has a crest
length of 684 feet. It contains 17,-
100 yards of concrete and stores
28,093 aore feet of water, equivalent to 100 full days operation of
the plant, after installation of
synchronous condenser.
Work 911 the new concentrator
was started in May. In spite of
delays occasioned by fire and flood
the structures were oompleted
and the unit will be in operation
in Maroh, 1924.

Production During last ten years, $350,288,892
Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 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 suoh properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.

Interests of Eastern Canada must be shown by the support
that we accord the Honorable John Oliver that we are
determined to grow and expand Every vote for a Liberal
Candidate is a vote for John Oliver, which is in effect an
official message to Ottawa and the East that we in British
Columbia are solidly behind the Oliver fight for conditions
which are fundamental to the prosperity of every man,
woman and child in this province.
Let us show them by our votes that
British Columbia is in earnest; that we are
determined to win this fight for equalized
freight rates—equal charge for equal service
throughout Canada; that we must have free
and unrestricted use of the Panama Canal;
that by natural heritage and moral right
__
We are entitled to representation on national
directorates; in short, that we demand the
right of this Province to develop and grow.
John Oliver, with his great, homely common-sense and dogged fighting qualities,
supported by his Liberal Government, has
carried this fight to the interests which are
retarding our growth and prosperity.
John Oliver and fiis Government made
the first real fight for equalized freight rates;
equal consideration in the expenditure of
public monies for harbor improvement, with
the resulting grain elevators, docks, etc., for
British Columbia.
John Oliver and his Government are
fighting for these fundamentals of prosperity
which will ensure for us factory pay-rolls;
a niarket for our agricultural products; the
development of our natural resources; all
of which will benefit every person in this
Province.
John Oliver, the head of the Liberal
Government in British Columbia, has the
ear of the Honorable Mackenzie King, the
head of the Liberal Government at Ottawa;
and if the people of British Columbia
demonstrate by their votes that they are in
accord with John Oliver's fight, we in
British Columbia will benefit to a far
greater extent than we would if Mr. Bowser or General McRae were placed in
power.

are very appreciably less than the
best average heretofore made over
an equal period of time.
Your combined properties have
now a capacity of 60,000,000
pounds pet* annum, equivalent to
174 pounds of copper per sharcof
Granby stock outstanding.
According to statistic,, believed
reliable, this per share capacity is
exceeded in North and South
America by but one property of
importance. With plant and
equipment inexcllent shape and
an organization replete with valuable employees of long servioe,
reasonable copper markets alone
aw necessary to insure return of
substantial earnings.
Development work was as follows: Hidden Creek Mine 6,315
feet.   Rambler Mine 295 feet.
Diamond drilling totaling 18,-
289 feet was done on the Hidden
Creek Group.
Reserves. Through diamond
drilling and development work
there were added to the high grade
reserve, 340,000 tons. There were
mined from the high grade 695,290
tons, leaving a balance of 8.600,700
tons in the high grade reserve, of
2% copper.
Supplementing this, there has
been segregated an additional
reserve, too low in grade to be considered as smelting ore, but which
will he mined and concentrated together with parts of the high
grade reserve. This segregation
consists of 1,440.700 tons of 1%
copper and is susceptible of increase, hoth through mining operations and economic conditions.
Maple Bay Group—"Outsider."
Underground work consisting of
some 1,100 feet of drifting aud
raising was continued throughout
the year. A reserve of some 500,
000 tons of "probable" silicious ore
running perhaps 2.5% copper is in-
licated from present work, with
known additional tonnage yet to
'ie developed. The property has
been equipped with air equipment,
aerial tram and loading dock,
buildings, etc., and shipments to
Anyox commenced early in 1924.
Acquisition of this property
eliminates further use of barren
quartz as flux.
"Eagle" and "Anaoonda"
Groups. These claims are held in
bond, 914 feet of diamond drilling
having been done on the "Eagle"
during the year 1923, indicating a
considerable tonnage of fair grade
copper ore. Additional drilling
will be done on both claims during
1924, in order that decision regarding them may be reaohed before
the first payment becomes due.,
Construction—The new dam on
Falls Creek was completed and
filled late in 1923. This structure
is 136 feet high and has a crest
length of 684 feet. It contains 17,-
100 yards of oonorete and stores
28,093 acre feet of water, equivalent to 100 full days operation of
the plant, after installation of
synchronous condenser.
Work on the new concentrator
was started in-May. In spite of
delays occasioned by fire and flood
the structures were completed
and the unit will be in operation
in March, 1924.

Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 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.

In addition to a record turn-out
of Alice Arm people, a large number of Anyox visitors came over to
take part in the proceedings, and
spend the day amid the pleasant
surroundings of the town.
A baseball game followed the
races, between two teams picked
from Anyox visitors and Alice
Arm, and in one of the most interesting and exciting games of
the season, Alice Arm managed to
eke out a precarious win over
Anyox by a score of 16-14.
After a batting rally in the
eighth inning gave the local boys
a lead.
It was a hard game for the
visitors to lose as Fitzpatriok had
pitched in good form until the
eighth, when he was batted freely,
he   was replaced  by Moore who
finished the game in good style.
Duly Dean made a brilliant
display as a catcher, aud had
everything a catcher needed to
make a name for himself, also was
there at the bat scoring four runs
for his team.
The looal boys played snappy
ball after they got over the disastrous fourth inning, when the
visitors scored seven runs.
Tlie teams were: Anyox, Dean,

THE story of the Winnipeg
forts of the early fur-trading
days—Rouge and Gibraltar.
Douglas and Garry, is among the
most interesting that could be
found anywhere. When Verendrye
came to the junction of the Red
and Assiniboine Rivers in 1738 he
established Fort Rouge. The
Northwest Company, sixty years
later, established Port Gibraltar,
and a few years later Port Douglas, named after Thomas Douglas, the fifth Earl of Selkirk, was
constructed by the Hudson's Bay
Company. Many stories are told
of conflicts between the servants
of the Hudson's Bay and North-
West Companies, but the feuds terminated with the amalgamation of
the two companies in 1821, and the
first Port Garry was erected as a
trading post and   settlers' depot.
This was an elaborate structure
with stone walls, bastions and portholes.
On 1831 the building of Lower
Port Garry, 19 miles down the
river was commenced. This was for
a time the residence of the Governor of Rupert's Land and the
seat of government. In 1835 Upper Fort Garry was begun at the
junction of the two rivers and this
was the centre of business, government, education and public affairs for more than 30 years, and
was the nucleus of the present city
of Winnipeg.
The Port was sold in 1882 and
the front gate, now .owned by tbe
city aiid standing beside tbe new
Fort Garry, the hotel of the Canadian National Railways, is all that
remains of this historic group of
buildings.
