Unsurpassed Talent by
Children Shown at
On Wednesday evening, the
children of the Granby Bay Public
Schools were instrumental in putting on an enjoyable entertainment
in the Recreation Hall, which was
paoked to seating capacity. All
those present agreed that it was an
evening well spent and the concert
put on by the ohildren was a huge
This was due to the hard work
on the part of both outsiders and
teachers, more especially to Miss.
L. G. Andrews, many of the ladies
iu the town were kind enough to
help in costuming and helpful sug
' gestions. Gratitude is extended to
all of those people as well as to others who helped in many ways.
The following gives a brief outline of explanation and convey some
idea of the several parts put on to
those who were unable to be present;
1. Opening Chorus, "Jingle
2. "Wee Willie Winkie," performed by little tots from the prim
ary grades, dressed in night apparel
who danced and sang.
■ "Little Robin Redbreast." Primary children went through the
motions of a robin.
3 "Motion Song," Christmas
Acrostic. Children from grades 2
and 3.
4. "Carpenter Dance," Children
from grades 2 and 3. First they
went through the motions of obtaining a tree from the forest and
then later of constructing a sleigh,
enjoying its use.
5. "Tom Sawyer," An extract
from "Tom Sawyer". The scene
where Tom obtains the aid of bis
friends to whitewash the fence.
6. "Dolls Dance," Children from
grade 1. The scene here depicted
was a doll shop with many dolls,
I the seller and a prospective buyer.
7. "Japanese Drill," This turn
was put on by the ohildren of the
Mine in a very ereditable manner and
showed that a great deal of painstaking care and practice had been
■ devoted to this drill. Credit is due
to Miss Feterly the Mine teacher.
8.     Pantomime.       "The  Old
Woman in the Shoe." The ohildren
taking  part in this were  taken
from the whole sohool, and they
all did great oredit in their respective parts, under the able guidance
'i of Miss Andrews, who trained them.
!    9.   "The Quarrel."     The char-
i aoters   for   this   number   were
| chosen from the entrance class.
10. A sketch taken from Dick-
en's Christmas Carol, This was
performed by the children ingrades
4, 7 and 8,
After the evening's amusement
was over The Parent Teaoher
Association served coooa and biscuits to the ohildren. The kindness
of Mr. B. M. Buok, Mr, G. Crow
and Mr, H. Selfe was instrumental
iu adding to the setting.

Alice Arm Skating Kink
Opened on Thursday
The Alice Arm Skating Rink
was opened to the public on Thursday evening, and the large building
resounded to the shouts of jubilant
skaters for the first time in two
No more will the energetic members of the town pine for a pastime
this winter if the thermometer
retains its present level. The
town's playground is now available,
and the healthiest of all winter
sports is now available in plenty.
Already plans are being made
for the playing of a series of hockey
games by those who delight in pitting their stamia and skill against
each other. Although the ranks of
players are somewhat depleted,
there should not be any great difficulty in forming at least two and
perhaps three teams.
Skating on Thursday evening
was made possible by the efforts of
several enterprising enthusiasts,
who lavishly spent their time in
flooding the rink. They also built
and erected a new heater for the
dressing room.
If Jack Frost attends to his end
of the business a very enjoyable
,vi»iter's spiort .should ensue.
Unusual Accident Occurs at
On Tuesday, an apparently unavoidable accident occurred at the
smelter, when a carbide gas generator tipped on its side and exploded,
inflicting injuries to R. C. Mo-
Knight, H. Brahar, M. Danovitch
and J. Wier. All four suffered
burns about the face. Doctor Learoyd appeared immediately on the
scene and they were conveyed to
the Hospital in autos with all poss
idle speed.
Alice Arm Christmas Tree

The annual Christmas Tree and
entertainment for the Alioe Arm
ohildren will be held in the Coliseum on Tuesday next, Deoember
An entertainment will be given
by the children, Santa Claus will
pay them a visit, and refreshments

and then to the adults. Everyone
is cordially invited to attend, and
an enjoyable evening is anticipated.

Mineral Production this
Year Will Break
The value of the mineral production in 1926 will exceed all records
in the history of the province.
Both from the standpoint of qualit?
production as well as value of minerals produced, the present year
will show a substantial increase
over 1625, the best previous year.
A Summary of the. development ofthe mining industry in the first ten
months of tlie year, together with
an estimate of the aggregate production for the twelve months
ending December 31st, has just
been issued by the Provincial Department of Mines. The figures
compiled hy John D. Galloway,
Provincial Mineralogist, indicate
that the aggregate value of the
mineral production for 1926 will
approximate $67,718,400 compared
with $61,226,158, or 11 per cent
over the previous record production
in 1925. This increase has been
made in the face of lower average
metal prices as compared with
Hon. Wm. Sloan, Minister of
Mines and Provincial Secretary, in
commenting on the report says: li
can now be confidently predicted
that the mineral production of the
province for the year 1926 will
again establish a new high record,
indicating the great increase in
mining development throughout
the province and the excellent
results accruing from that development.
Tlie figures of the estimated 1926
production, compared with the final
figures for 1925, are given below.

Howe Sound Co. Makes
Good Showing on
all Properties
Howe Sound Company, operating the Britannia copper mine along
with two other properties in Mexico, is today one of America's important producers. For the
quarter ended September 30 it
earned $875,695 after depreciation
and before depletion. That amount
is equivalent to $1.70 earned in the
second quarter.
For the first nine months of 1926
net earnings amounted to $2,415,-
941 or $4.87 a share. The year's
earnings, it is expected will be
about $6.60 a share,
During the third quarter of 1926
the How,e Sound Copper company
produced 15,133,821 pounds of lead
11,890,863 pounds of zinc'7,930,-
470 of copper, 678,470 ounces of
silver and 3090 ounces of gold. For
these respective metals, in the
order given production during the
second quarter was: 14,767,834
pounds. 13,400,7.62 pounds, 9,016^
120 pounds, 597,355 ounces and
3084 (unices,
It has been calculated, that with
i production of silver at the rate of.
2,662,000 ounces annually the loss
to the company due to the decline
iii the price of the white metal is
about 50 cents a share in earnings.
Lots of Work for Federal
Hollinger Mine Has Big
The Hollinger Consolidated,
TiiTimins, Out., operating in the
Porcupine area, is making steady
progress with its programme of
expansion. The plant is now
handling an average of 5,500 tons
daily. Preparations have been
made for the installation of three
more rod mills. These will give
the plant a capacity of about 8,500
tons daily, One of these has
already arrived on the property
aud the other two will soon be
delivered. The mine itself is
equipped to supply tho requisite
tonnage, the central shaft being
equipped to hoist ore. at the rate of
12,000 tons daily.
In addition to the work that was
presented at the session opening on
Thursday, members of Canada's sixteenth parliament found awaiting
them about seventy bills left over
from last session, of which forty-
eight are divorce cases. The unexpected dissolution of the last Parliament left in the air a number of
important measures and it now
appears that they will have to be
considered again one by one before
the new Parliament can pass them.
The supply bill will be the first to
demand attention. This was not
even introduced at the last session
because the estimates had not passed the committee stage.
Several important bills had, however, passed both houses of which
the Rural Credits Bill was considerably amended in the Senate although
it is now ready for Royal Assent.

High Grade Encountered
in Sebakwe Mine
Portland Canal News
The long tunnel on the Sebakwe
property (known also as the Bush
and National Silver) has penetrated
the northern extension of the great
B. C. Silver ore body, striking the
vein in a high-grade area. At latest
reports, reliable though unofficial,
the vein had been crosscut ten feet
without the footwall being encountered. The ore is said to be a
quartz-porphyry typical of the Pre
mier and B. C. Silver and carrying
argentite, ruby and native silver,
and is undoubtedly a high grade
product. The tunnel is in about
1100 feet and has been driven in record time by a small crew. This is
the best news the camp has had for
many a day.
When you see a man making all
sorts of faces at himself in a mirror
it's a safe bet that he's either crazy
or shaving.
The President of Mexico has approved a decree providing for a progressive diminution of silver taxes
when the price of that metal falls
below 57c per ounce, states a cable
to the U. S. Department of Commerce. The constant rise of dollar
exchange is reported to be exerting
an adverse effect on markets and
collections in Mexico.
Through agreement between the
Federal Government of Canada and
the Hudson's Bay Company, there
is in preparation a series of questions to be submitted to the Supreme Court of Canada to determine
the ownership of the precious
metals found on lands owned by the
