Copper Produced In
Anyox Last Year
What the mining industry is
capable of in this section of the
province can be judged from the
production of copper made last
year by tho Granby Consolidated
Mining, Smelting and Power Co.
Ltd. at its Anyox plant.
For the year 1927 the production
reached the stupendous total of
37,717,590 pounds of copper; 301,-
410 ozs. silver; and 5,751 ozs. of
gold.
The tonnage of ore mined at
Anyox was 1,368,396 tons. Of
this amount 1,054,986 tons were
treated by the concentrating mill
and the balance smelted. The
amount of concentrates derived
was 84,068 tons.
The total tonnage of ore mined
at the company's Allenby plant
during 1927, was 756,644 tons.
The mill treated 757,625 tons of
ore, producing 30,194 tons of concentrates. From these concentrates were derived 17,694,121
pounds of copper, 134,030 ozs. silver, and 4,024 ozs. gold.
Tkild New Gymnasium
On Old Site
The public meeting held on Friday, June 1st. endorsed erection of
the new gymnasium according to
plans drawn by Mr. R. O. Cutler.
A few suggestions regarding details
were offered which will be incorporated if feasible and necessary.
Notwithstanding former expressions of opinion regarding the
necessity of a new site, the league
president offered as the only alternative a location between the Bank
and the Catholic Hall; a site which,
it was stated, would entail some
expense for digging and blasting
before construction could begin.
Accordingly, the meeting was asked
to approve the old site again. The
debris of the old building was being
burned while the meeting was in
session. The plans and the site
having been thus disposed of, it remains to get action on the tenders.
Mr. and Mrs. Mclvor arrived on
Thursday from the south.

Everyone Cordially Invited to Attend
Road and Trail Work
Around Alice Arm
The repairing of the Dolly Varden
railway is practically completed.
This work has been undertaken by
the Department of Public Works,
The track has been repaired; new
ties put in at numerous points and
bridges and trestles strengthened.
It has been decided to construct
a new wagon road from the Upper
Kitsault suspension bridge to the
Toric Mine. The road will be built
on a six or seven per cent grade
and will greatly facilitate transportation to the mine.
The wing dam, which protects
the town of Alice Arm from the
Kitsault River will be lengthened
for a distance of about 300 feet, and
it is believed that this work will
ensure the town from any possible
danger of being flooded during high
water periods.
Up to the present no word has
been received from the south regarding the building of the new
road up the north-east fork of the
Kitsault river.
Ore Samples   Wanted
For Exhibition
An appeal has been made by the
officers of the Alice Arm branch of
the British Columbia Chamber of
Mines, to owners of mineral claims
requesting them to bring iu ore
samples for display purposes at the
Vancouver and New Westminster
exhibitions which will be held in
August.
If impossihe to bring samples to
town, leave them on railway or
pack trail, and they will be taken
care of.
It is hoped that Alice Arm will
this year send the best display in
its history,
Our mineral riches are becoming
more widely known, and it is our
business to keep the name of the
camp before the public by advertising our wares.

The summer season, now at
hand, brings with it an economic
ill that annually takes a toll of
thousands of ill gained dollars. It
is the itinerant peddler, the house
to house door bell ringer and those
of his kind who travel from place
to place plying their trade and
imposing on the credulity of the
unthinking, offering bargains in this
and that which most always turn
out to be inferior merchandise sold
at higher prices or in short measure. It is well to beware of these
fellows and the plausible stories
that they tell to engage the interest
and confidence of their prospects.
They are of many varieties and
with as many kinds of merchandise
to sell.
Inferior articles of many kinds
are peddled about hither and yon
during the summer. The automobile has been great aid to this
kind of chicanery for after he has
landed a few gullible prospects a
day's journey will take him far
away and beyond the reach of the
buyer who discovers that he has
been victimized.
Blacksmith   Nominated   By
Comox Liberals
J. W. McKenzie Jr., blacksmith
and mayor of Courtenay, has
been nominated by Comox Liberals
to contest this riding at the forthcoming provincial election. The
sitting member is Paul P. Harrison
of Cumberland, Dr. George K.
MoNaughton, Cumberland physician, is the Conservative candidate.
The carpenters' union embracing
membership in Vancouver of nearly
1200 men decided to withdraw
from the Canadian Labor party
because of the Party's attitude in
favor of the franchise and naturalization for Orientals.

The substantial progress of the Mining iudustry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94 547 241; forfive years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; forfive years. 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five yearo-

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 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 such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to. the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological

Outlook Is Bright For
British Columbia Silver
And Copper
*> British Columbia, producing copper, lead, zinc, gold and silver, has
been experiencing in recent years
anunprecedented and steadily growing activity in her metalliferous
mining industry. A briskly moving stock market accompanying
this development. On which is
cause and which effect we shall
not attempt to give judgement.
But a development worthy of
note since it has a direct bearing
on the industry and on the mining
stock market, is the firmer tendency to be noted in copper and
silver.
During the past month silver has
come up from about 51)4 cents to
its old level, 60 cents, a price long
accepted by assayers as normal.
There is a likelihood that the quotation on silver will stabilize at a
level somewhat above 60, say observers iu New York.
Copper, which seemed for some
time unable to lift itself above 14
and 14j cents, despite the assistance of the producers' machinery
regulating output and export, has
suddenly displayed marked
strength and lately has been selling around 14| with higher prices
indicated. An actual shortage of
copper is said to exist. European
demand is unexpectedly great.

To The Herald
Alice Arm.
Dear Editor,
Through the medium of
your columns I would like to express
my very hearty appreciation to my
many friends in Anyox for the
sympathetic support given me
during my pastorate with the
United Church. t
I am very giateful to the members and friends of the Church
who presented me with such a well
tilled purse. I would also take
this opportunity to thank the
'"Herald" and the "Granby News"
for their many kindnesses.
Wo leave Anyox with feelings
of good will to all and with many
happy memories which we will
always cherish.
Yours truly,
C. D. CLARKE.
Since Confederation, we have in
Canada cut down with the axe
100,000 square miles of timber.
But this is insignificant compared
with the 800,000 square miles
which have been destroyed by tire.
