Granby Co. Outlines
Summer Programme
The Granby Company have outlined a considerable programme of
improvement for this year at their
big Anyox plant, and also mining
development work.
/I In a recent interview with the
Herald, Mr. J. B. Haffner, general
superintendent, stated that an extension of the tunnel will be made
on the Bonanza property this year'
This extension will be made so
that it will be possible to operate
diamond drills under ground instead of on the surface, as has
been formerly done. The. Bonanza
is situated about two miles from
the smelter, toward the Head of
the bay.
Work will also be done at the
iqtiartz mine at Granby Point
opposite the Coke Plant. This
work will consist of blasting out
the supporting pillars of quartz,
and taking out any other quartz
that is obtainable. This quartz
carries a high percentage of silica,
which is greatly needed at the
smelter, now that the company are
smelting the concentrates from the
new mill.
In order to safeguard against a
repetition of the fire which occurr
ed last July, the Granby Co. have
decided to install a high pressure
water line. This line will commence at the surge tank, and follow
the high railway line to the mine.
It will then be carried dowri the
Mine Road to the beach. It will,
be independent of the present
system, as the pressure will be too
high.
As a measure of eoonomy in
heating the various big buildings
of the town, it has been decided to
eliminate the small heating plants
aud centralize the whole heating
system at the No. 2 power house.
All the big buildings now using
steam heat will be supplied from
No, 2 power house.
A new high pressure air line
will be constructed from the beach
to the mine. This work was commenced last year, and will now be
completed. The existing 8in. and
ttiti. lines now being used for air
will be used for steam and  water.
Mr. Haffner stated that the new
concentrating mill was giving
satisfaction. The mill was now
working at half capacity, and in
about two months it was expected
that it would be going full blast.
The new machinery needed constant watching.
The Outsider property at Maple
Bay is now making regular shipments of ore to Anyox. Due to
shortage of water it has not yet
been possible to ship 100 tons per
day. As soon as sufficient water
is available the big compressor
will be started up, thus ensuring
at least 100 tons per day and
possibly considerably more.
Change of Boat Schedule
The summer schedule of the
Grand Trunk Pacific Coast Steamships, will commence on Thursday,
next, May 1st. The boat from the
south will arrive in Any< x at 6
a.m., and leave for Prince Rupert,
Vancouver and intermediate points
the same day, at 1 p.nt.
For Sale at Alice Arm
Comfortable house, completely
furnished, with Lot 30ft. by 100ft.
House is situated iu ideal location,
and will sell at bargain price. For
particulars, apply Herald Office.
Progress of Logging
at Alice Arm
The Granby Company are busily rushing to completion the
necessary construction work
relative to their logging operations
at Alioe Arm. The railway trestle
on the Kitsault flats will be completed at beginning of next Week.
The present length of the trestle
will be 1500 feet, but during the
summer it will be built through
the Indian Reserve, and ultimately
extended for a length of three and
a half miles.
Mr. Dan Clanahan arrived last
week with the two big yarder
engines, and one of these engines
is now on the way to the No. 2
camp on the west bank of the
Kitsault river, and should be in
position in about 10 days.
The Granby Co. now have 75
men employed at No. 1 camp on
the Kitsault flats and 32 at the
No. 2 camp, making a total of
107 men.
Three new, logging cars arrived
from Anyox on Wednesday, and
more are to follow, two cars will
also be built here.
The Dolly Varden railway is
being repaired as far as No. 2
camp, and the log dump on the
track where the logs will be dumped into the salt chuck will be completed and fully rigged in about
five days. It is expected that logs
will be coming down the railway
in about three Weeks.
-Last.week, two bunkhouses Were
completed, one at eaoh oamp and
the company is now able to house
and feed a large proportion of
their men.
Mr. Eric Carlson, at the camp of
the Abbotsford Logging Co. is now
Working around 60 men. Logging
operations are again in full swing
and will continue uninterruptedly
throughout the summer.

Despite the fact that the
weather for boating has been so
backward and not much opportunity of getting in readiness for the
summer outings, we notice that
some of the small craft owners
have stolen a march on Old Sol,
and painted their boats under
cover. The "Wanderer" and
"Wayward Girl" just recently
launched-with their new coats of

ready to make a dash for the open

sees fit.

The disappearance of the snow
again reveals to us good old
Mother Earth, with the tender
shoots of grass, flowers and plants,
ready to burst into leaf and later
beautify the ground with a wealth
of flowers. It also reveals the
winter's accumulation of ashes,
cans and general refuse, thrown
out during the winter. Now is
the time to get busy with rake and
shovel and clean up. There is
nothing that gives the visitor a
worse impression than a lot of
refuse heaps scattered around a
town, for it shows carelessness and
neglect on the part of the inhabitants. Refuse piles should be removed for our health's sake, for
here is the breeding ground of the
flies which later infest our homes.
Clean up the front yard and
clean up the back yard. Plant a
few flowers and convert the refuse
dumping ground into a place of
beauty.
The ontdoor sport season in
Anyox will again be shortly in
full swing. The local athletes are
itching to go, and arrangements
have already been made for the
summer's programme. Thanks to
the efforts of the Anyox Community League, the athletes of both
sexes have had a rare chance to
keep in condition at the Gymnasium. Anyox has had in the
past some excellent seasons of
outdoor sports, and all signs, point
to another successful season this
year. Good clean wholesome
sport is a fine thing to take part
in, and a great deal of pleasure
can be obtained by watching it.
Get behind your favorite team
and boost them to the limit for
competition is lifes blood of sport
as well as industry.
U. S. Fire Losses

totalled in 1922, $506,451,000,

Lucky Jim Mine to be
Re-Opened
Another of the once-famous mines
of the "Silvery Slocan" will revive us
.soon as weather conditions will permit, when Lucky Jim once more.begins to give up its wealth of mineral.
This time however, instead of producing large quantities of lead and silver,
as it did more than twenty-five years
ago when it returned a large profit to
its various owners, its chief profit return probably will be from ssinc
The history of the "Lucky. Jim" has
been an eventful one. It was -mined
successfully in the early days of the
Kootenay excitement, various man
agements being successful as the lead
market Went up or down. Prior to
the war the company which was then
operating got into difficulties, and Mr.
Larsen was appointed receiver. The
mine was once more operated profitably and the larger part ot the indebtedness paid off. At the close of the
war Mr. Larsen applied for relief from
the receivership. Since then the
mine has been closed.
Decrease in Daily Newspapers

small increase has taken place
during the year in the number of
monthly and semi-monthly periodicals. These facts are shown in the
Canadian newspaper directory
just issued.
Another Big Pulp Mill for
Canada
A paper mill costing $2,200,000,
will be constructed at the head of
the lakes by the Great Lakes Pulp
and Paper Company, whose new
pulp mill is now in the last stages
of completion. When completed
the combined pulp and paper
plants will give employment to no
less than 600 men all the year
round.

extremely gratifying to note that
the above-mentioned output for
the year 1923 has only been exceeded twice in the history of
mining in the province, and that
was in 1916, when production
reached $42,290,462, and in 1918,
when the figure of $41,782,474,
was attained. In these two years
the production was the result of
the war-time stimulus of output
and war-time  prices of the metals,
■' In the face of the explanation
of the causes of these higher years,
the output of 1923 is very creditable and indicates that normal
conditions are returning, and maybe expected to remain.

Present Demand for
Lead Will Continue
Taking into consideration the
general situation, it is not unreasonable or farfetched to predict
for lead a price equal to, or even
higher than the present price of
copper. One may look into any of
the great uses of lead and fail to
find a sign of decreased demand,
but rather aji ever increasing consumption. The automobile, with
its storage battery, has exhibited
no sign of an early demise, and
the building trades will continue
to be increased users of paint aud
other lead products. Europe will
some day be in the market for the
metal she can no longer produce,
and the extraordinary strides the
Oriental people are making in
modernizing their country, a
rapidly increasing market can be
looked for in that.direction.
Lead ore, running 10 per cent,
metallic lead is just as valuable
with lead at a net value of 6 cents
per pound as gold ore assaying $12
per ton. In addition to this, practically all the' B. C. galena ores
carry silver in greater or lesS
quantities.
Daily-Alaska to Have
Concentrator
The Daly-Alaska mine in the
Salmon River Valley at Stewart
may have a concentrating mill
this year according to a statement made at Vancouver this
week by William Sloan, superintendent of the mine. Good
showings have been made on the
property recently and the cost of
operation has not been high.
