Presentations Made To
Mr. John Dillon Before
His Departure
Mr. John Dillon, who left
Anyox last week for California,
was the recipient of two very useful gifts, one of which was given
to him by members of the staff of
the Granby Co., aud the other was
given him by men of the smelter,
with whom be has been in contact
for the past eleven years.
Tlie presentation niade by
the members of the staff to their
colleague, was made at the regular
meeting of the staff members, at
the General Office, on Thursday
morning, when they presented
him with a handsome Club Bag.
Mr. J. B. Haffner acted as
spokesman, and in bis remarks
mentioned tbe long time that Mr.
Dillon had been with the company,
and his great willingness to get behind and support not only company business, but all social and
athletic affairs in the camp, and
the great esteem in which he was
•held by everyone in the camp.
Mr. Haffner also said that his going would leave a gap in the ranks
_y»f friendship that would be hard to
fill, but wished him all prosperity
and happiness in his future home
in California.
Mr. Dillon replied that he
would not say goodbye permanently, for he hoped they would all
come to California and renew old
friendships aud thanked them for
their good wishes aud kind remembrance.
In addition to the above presentation, the men of the smelter
presented Mr. Dillon with a solid
gold watch and chain, This gift,
was donated by 150 men, composed only of smeltermen, some of
; whom have been with Mr. Dillon
since 1914, when the first furnace
was blown in. The presentation
was made in the Converter Shift
House, by Mr. Neil Harrington,
who, in the course of his remarks
said how sorry they all were to
lose such an old friend, and trusted that he would remember Anyox
whenever he had cause to use the
watch which had been given him
by the men of the smelter, as a
slight token of their esteem.
Mr. Dillon in replying, thanked
everyone for their co-operation and
loyalty during the past eleven
years, and hoped that some time in
the future they would meet again
and renew old friendships.
Mr. Dillon was numbered
among the oldest residents of
Anyox. He was in charge of the
smelter when the first furnace was
blown-in, on March 17th. 1914.
On his retirement he held the position of smelter superintendent, and
held in high esteem by all with
whom he oame in contact, both on
and off the job. Everyone wishes
Jack all happiness in his new
home in California, and that he
will live a good many years to enjoy his well earned rest.
Granby Co. Plans  to
Operate Copper
Mountain
The Granby Co. will undoubtedly resume operations at Copper
Mountain this year stated Mr. J.
B. Haffner; assistant general
manager of the company, to the
Herald during the week,
He stated, however, that it probably will bo September beforeevery-
thing was ready for the big mill to
start operations. The spur line
from the Kettle Valley railway
needs considerable repairing, and
this work will take from 60 to 90
days. Considerable work is also
necessary at the concentrating mill
before it can be operated, so that
it would be September before
everything was running smoothly
and efficiently.
Fine Zinc Ore Comes off
McGrath Mountain
Some beautiful specimens of
high grade zinc ore was brought to
Alice Arm recently by G. W. Morley from his property on McGrath
mountain. Mr. Morley states that
lie 'vs continually receiving enquiries regarding his property on McGrath mountain. Samples of the
ore have been sent out. Lead and
zinc are now among the most
favored of metals and the MrGratb
deposits will undoubtedly be developed in the near future., in ad
dition to the work of the Granby
Co. on the Standard. The McGrath mountain properties are
close to tide water, and this fact
will undoubtedly hasten their development.
High Grade Encountered
At Esperanza
A nice high grade vein of ore
has been encountered at the Esperanza mine by Messrs. Fraser and
Lee, who have a lease on the property. The Esperanza seems to be
full of these high grade veins, and
when.power is available for development purposes, some big surprises are liable to be sprung from
this persistent shipper of high
grade ore.
New Alice Arm Business
Block Completed
The new business block just
completed by Mr. N. Sutilovich is
without doubt the finest building
in town. The exterior is very imposing and the interior is beautifully finished. The building
stands on First Street in the
centre of the business section. It
has a frontage of 26 feet and a
length of 50 feet, and is two stories
high. The finest of fir lumber has
been used in its construction. The
ground floor is lined with v-joiiit
and fir veneer It is now receiving its first coat of varnish and
paint, and when completed, will
present a very ploasing appearance.

The Herald is doing its utmost
to obtain publicity for the mining
industry of the district, and each
week over 500 copies are distributed throughout   the   continent.
The Herald is only a small
paper compared to those published
in larger centres, bnt don't forget
that its size depends entirely upon
the support it receives. If you are
not already an advertiser, then in
all fairness you should advertise,
and help the good work along.
If you are an advertiser, then why
not double your space, and help
give the district a bigger and better
paper. If you are not in business,
and therefore have nothing to
advertise, you should help support
the local paper, the only means
the district possesses of giving
publicity to the outside world of
the development of the mining industry and its vast possibilities.
Subscribe for yourself and then for
your friends who live in other
parts, and let them know what a
rich mineral country you are living
in.
Present Big Demand for
Copper Will Continue
Mr. Browning, manager of the
Britannia mine, speaking before
the delegates at the convention of
tbe B. C. Division, Canadian Mining Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, stated that copper, the
metal upon .which the prosperity of
the mining industry in British
Columbia to a great extent de.
pends, has every prospect of remaining in good demand for an
indefinite long period.
Discovery of new uses for copper
in the advance of electricity is
causing a demand for the red
metal which copper mining companies of the world will be taxed
to fill, Mr. Browning declares.
Mr. Browning said that the
American people used 6.2 pounds
of copper per capita, while the far
eastern countries where electricity
has yet to make its advance, used
only an indefinite small fraction of
a pound per capita annually.
T. A. Richard, San Francisco
mining journalist, opened the discussion on metal supplies and
markets with a resume of the
standing of the various industrial
metals. Enormous increase in the
use of metals in the past 25 or 30
years and the consequent exhaustion of supplies, made a review of
the situation interesting, he said.
Outlook for Baseball in
Anyox for Coming
Season
The baseball outlook in Anyox
for the coming season, does not, at
the time of writing look as bright
as in former years. Since the close
of last year's season quite a number of senior players have left
town, and as yet no new talent is
in sight to take their places. Unless new players arrive before the
opening game, it looks as though
the senior games will not be up to
the usual high standard of recent
years.
The Mine and Elks both have
enough players to field fair teams,
but the ranks of the Smelter squad,
—last year's runner's up—have
been sadly depleted, only four of
their regulars being in town.
The Elks will be minus the services of Cy. Greenwell, Coleman
Hall, Red Fitzpatrick, and possibly Archie Campbell. The loss
of these players, however, may not
be so keenly, felt, as it is rumoured
that Cecil Ferguson and Fred
Brown may throw in their lot with
the Brother Bills.
The Miners have several of last
year's squad, and several new
players who are more or less unknown quantity.
It is now up to the different
teams to meet and solve tbe problem confronting them. It is unthinkable that the senior league
liould be abolished. In order to
till up the three teams there are
two courses; split up the best
players among the three teams,
md fill in with the pick of the
Intermediates, or, import new
players. A senior league of three
teams we should have somehow.
Lots of Footballers are
Available
New Copper Production
Records
World production in 1924 totaled 3,200,000,000 pounds, compared
with wartime record of 3,150,000,-
000 pounds in 1918, and prewar
peak of 2,181,253.000 pounds   in
The football outlook is very
bright for the season of 1925, tlie
same three teams will compete
again this summer and are all keyed up and rarin' to go. Several
new pigskin chasers have hit
town since the close of last year.
All three clubs are confident of
strong elevens, and the race for the
eague championship and the cup
ties should be very closely contested.

Alice Arm Notes
Continued from page 1
plies. They came from the Naas
valley and down the Kitsault, returning the same way.
Construction of the bridge
icross the Illiance River is now
under way. This work was commenced last year. On its completion it'will be possible to walk
from Alice Arm to the Silver City
side of the inlet without any difficulty. This will be greatly appreciated by prospectors, loggers,
hunters, fishermen, etc.
The work of surfacing the wharf
■oad is being carried out by the
Public Works Department.
All signs point to a season of
activity for the mining industry
this year, and some big deals are
expected to go through with local
properties before next winter's
8iiovv strikes the tall hill tops.
If we had an organization here,
we could probably arrange to send
an ore exhibit to the B. C.
Chamber of Mines, and also supply them with ' information regarding development of the. camp.
As matters stand now, we can not
do anything, only growl about the
slowness of investors recognizing
Alice Arm. This clamlike silence
isn't hurting anyone except ourselves.
Peace   River   Railway May
Not Be Commenced This
Year
Latest advices from Ottawa
state that the building of the
Peace River Railway may uot be
commenced this year, Earnings
on both the C. N. R. and C. P. R.
declined last year, and for this reason the building of the railway
may be held over.
