Leads Way
Will Spend Large  Sum on
Construction Work
Copper Production for 1922
The Granby Consolidated Mining!
Smelting & Power Co,, who are the
largest mining operators in the
north, and who own the largest
copper smelter in the British Empire, are consolidating their position
for the future. By the time the
present construction programme is
completed, which will be early iii
1924 the company will have spent
a total of $1,200,000. The fact
that such a conservative concern as
the Granby Co. can see their way
clear to spend such an enormous
amount of money, speaks volumes
for the future of the mining industry of the north, and is a sure sign
that they contemplate operating
for a number of years to come, not
only the Hidden Creek mine but
also other properties that can be
developed into mines, in the rich,
undeveloped mining district surrounding Aiiyox,,
The new storage dam which is
partially completed, will cost $500,
000; the addition to the hydroelectric plant, at the No. 1. power
house will cost $200,000, and the
new concentrating plant will cost
$500,000.
In an interview with the Herald
Mr. H. S. Munroe, general manager
of the company stated tlj»,t construction of the new concentrator
; will commence early in the spring.
It will be capable of handling from
1200 to 1500 tons of ore per day.
The ore to be treated by the mill
contains too much' silicas to be pro
Jitably smelted direct. Several
million tons of this ore have been
blocked, out at the mine, and if
other bodies are discovered in the
future, additions will be built to the
mill.
About 100 men will be employed
upon the erection of the mill, which
is hoped to be in operation by the
beginning of next year. The operation of the mill will mean 'the
closing of one furnaoe at the
smelter.
Mr. Munroe stated that helioped
the Outsider property whioh is
situated up the Portland Canal,
' and on which the company are
doing development work, would be
shipping ore to Anyox next fall.
Regarding production of copper
last year, the Granby Co. produced
29,50J3,000 mil'lion pouuds. The
' numberof tons of ore smelted was
878,000 tons and 27*000 tons of ore
from the Premier minis, was also
treated at Anyox.
In regard to the prioe^ of oopper,
Mr. Munroe did not anticipate any
immediate increase in price, this
being due to the fact that production is now greater than; consumption.    At the commencement  of
Hockey Games
at Alice Arm
Hockey is the premier sport of
the people of Alice Arm these
days. Everyone is joining in the
full, and some good- games have
been put up by. the local puck
chasers during the week.
The ladies are taking a promr
inent part in the sport, and the
game played last Saturday by the
two ladies teams, Mern'iaids and-l
Nymphs, was a thrilling encounter
from start to finish, Throughout
the game the Nymphs were the
aggressive team. They played a
dashing game, and deserved to
win, and win they did, with a
score of 6-2.
On Thursday, the ladies teams
again clashed, and the ending
thereof was somewhat different
from the previous game. The
Mermaids held the Nymphs from
scoring a goal, while they placed
the little black disc no ,less than
three times into the net. The
game was a hard, fast one throughout, and the lady stick handlers
are rapidly improving,
Three League games were played
during the week by the mere men.
The first was on Sunday, when the
Bears and Wildcats waded into
each other for three full periods, at
the end of which the score^ stood
3-3. Fifteen minutes overtime
was played,-but neither side could
score, so evenly were the teams
matched, and a thrilling game was
finished with neither side claiming
•the victory. The1 Wildoats, however, were satisfied, as they obtained their first point of the'season.
On Wednesday, the Cougars and
Wildcats mixed things. It proved
a disastrous day for the Wildcats,
who were hoping to capture a
pouple-of more -points. The game
was fairly even for two periods,
when the score was 4-3 in favor of
the Cougars, but in the, final
period the Cats hopes and ambitions faded far, far away. The
Cougars got their goat, and scored
three goals, against the Wildcats
0, and the final score stood at 7-3.
Ou Friday, the Cougars and
Wildcats again tangled up, and if
the Cougars again expected to
clean up their opponents, they
were doomed to disappointment.
For this was the day the Cats
were out to win, which they did,
and at the close of a hard fought
game, they came out winners, with
a score of 5-3. The Wildoats team
showed a great improvement,
They played better combination
and their shooting was excellent.
Following is the standing of the
teams:
Won    Lost   Tied    Pts.

History of the
Dolly Varden
1922 production was at the rate of
32,000,000 pounds per month, and,
at the present time, the production
had increased to 120,000,000 pounds
per month. ' He, however, felt sure
that, the Granby Company, having
successfully survived the most critical stage, would without doubt
oontinue' to operate.

Transportation, Engineers

Continued from last week '
As soon as the Taylor Engineering Company were awarded the
mine by the government, they
formed the Taylor Mining Company. Capital for tins company
was raised in Vancouver and Victoria, and on June 10th, 1919, the
Taylor Company took possession of
the property. On taking over the
mine, they seoured a property on
which a large amount of develop,
ment work had been done. The
Dolly Varden Mines Company had
driven 2086 feet of drifts and crosscuts, 280 feet of open cuts, and 898
feet of diamond drilling. Large
bodies of high grade had been
proven up ready for mining and
shipping, and-this the Taylor Co.
proceeded to do .with all possible
speed.
The remaining 1|, miles of railway was finished. A tramway,
1900 feet in length ,was built from
the mine to the railway. New
buildings were, erected, mining
equipment and rolling stock for the
railway was purchased—lots of
which was useless and never used"—
and,on August 28th. the first load
of ore was shipped over the,railway
from mine to beaoh. During 1920,
ore bunkers with a capacity of
800 tons, was built at the wharf,
and a hydro-electric plant capable
of generating 500 H.-P. was built
on the Wolf property, and mining
was carried on throughout the
year.
From September 1st, 1919, to
September 1st, 1920, the Taylor
Company shipped ore which gave
returns of 1,170,000 ozs. silver.
The ore ran over 30 ozs. per ton.
From September 1st,. 1920, to the
end of the year, 6,709, tons or ore
was shipped, containing 423,952
ozs. silver, or an average, of about
63 ozs. per ton. During the slimmer of 1921,1874 tons of ore was.
shipped, yielding 45,648 ozs. silver,
making a total of 1,639,600 ozs.
and this at a time when silver was
ranging over a dollar an ounce.
During the two years mentioned,
when the high grade was pouring
out in a steady stream, the Taylor
Company were spending money
recklessly, buying equipment for
mine and railway and undertaking
costly construction-work, but the
day of reokoning came, and in
December, 1920, the mine was
closed down, and the bright light
of the Taylor Mining Company
which flared up in June, 1919, was
extinguished, and a property which

Sir Henry
Thornton's Visit.
Sir Henry Thornton has paid
Western Canada a visit, as far
west as the coast. He visited
Vancouver and like a good many
more distinguished visitors he
believed that as soon as he arrived
at that town that his object was
achieved, and that Vancouver was
the only worth while town on the
Pacific coast. He declined the
invitation of Prince Rupert to visit
that town, although it is the terminus of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway system. He spent considerable time in Vancouver,
listening to the pleas of the Board
of. Trade, but the plea of Prince
Rupert was ignored, and Sir
Henry goes east with his visit only
half completed, If. he intends to
familiarize himself with the whole
of the Canadian National Railway
system, he should at least, visit the
sltatagetic points of the system, and
Prince Rupert is one of them.
History ot the

Continued from page 1.
should have been a steady shipper
was closed. Mr. Taylor tried
frantically to obtain money to
carry on operations, but failed,
and except for the shipping of 1874
tons of ore, which contained 45,648
ozs. silver, in the summer of 1921,
and a small amount of development
work, no other work has been
done on the property. The Taylor
Company failed to extend the railway to the Wolf and that property
is in the same condition as when
taken over by them. ■
That the operations of the Taylor
Company have been detrimental to
the mining industry of Alice Arm,
is well known by all who are
acquainted with the facts, and the
failure of that company to successfully operate the richest known
property in the district, is a blow;
from which Alice Arm will take
time to recover. The failure, however, was not the fault of the mine
but was due purely to mismanagement, over optimism, and lack of
knowledge regarding mining.
With the passing of the property
under control of Mr. Geo. Wingfield, who is a successful mining
operator of Nevada and Colorada,
better times can be looked for. It
is understood that a new company
has been formed, and although at
the time of writing, no definite
programme has been issued by the
company regarding what work will
be done on the Dolly Varden and
Wolf properties this year, there is
no doubt that development work
will be carried on. It is claimed
by those acquainted with the Dolly
Varden, that considerable quantities of high grade ore are in
existence in the present workings
of the mine, and also large bodies
of secondary ore, which can be
profitably mined, whenever a concentrating mill is in operation in
operation in the upper Kitsault
country. The Wolf- also contains
large bodies of ore that can be
profitably treated by a concentrating mill.
That sane mining methods will
be employed by the new company
is a foregone conclusion, and with
these methods being carried put,
Alice Arm has no need to fear for
the future of the mining industry.

Seattle. Tenders are now being
called for a 100 foot extension of
the present tunnel. The Silverado
is owned by John Haahti, and a
bond was taken on the property by
J. J, Couglan and associates in the

To the Editor

Dear Sir:
Can you spare a small space to
allow me to correct an erronous impression, which your readers are very
apt to gather from a statement published in your paper under date of
January 20th, in respect to my actions
which I took by putting two slides on
the screen, in the Anyox Recreation
Hall. It was the only medium by
which I could inform the General
Public of the actions of the "Calamity
League Council" to the' methods the
said Council resort to. As a matter of
fact, the whole question of the Licence
proposition was previously out and
dried before coming up at the meeting
and it was absolutely railroaded
through, without .even putting before
the meeting.    As I  interrupted the
