Granby Company Close
Logging Camps At
Alice_Arm
The logging camps of the Granby
Consolidated Mining Smelting and
Power Co. Ltd, that have been
operating at Alioe Arm, since early
last spring were closed down on
Monday evening. The closing
down of the oamps was quite unexpected, word being received from
Anyox the same day as the closedown went into effeot. It was
expeoted that the camps
would be operated for at least two
more mouths. The depression of
the lumber market, was one of the
chief causes of the close-down. It
was also found that a market oould
not be found for logs that, would
give the company a return on their
investment. While the management of tho company regret the
suspension of operations it was the
only alternative.
The Granby Co. were employing
a force of seventy-five men at the
time of the close down, a number
of these were engaged iu railway
construction work.
During the week, all equipment
has been gathered up for winter
storage. At the present time it is
not known whether operations will
be commenced next spring, it depending to a large extent on market conditions.
The Granby Co. still have a large
area of land to log off, containing
some fine spruce timber, and there
is no doubt that if it is by any
means possible this ground will be
logged at an early date. The closing of the logging camps will necessitate the cessation of operations
of the sawmill at Larcom Island
in the near future.
Fox Property Shows
Good Ore During
Development
The Fox group of claims, whioh
is situated at the headwaters of
the Kitsault river, is looking more
promising than ever. Mr., Oscar
Flint, who arrived in Alice Arm
yesterday has been doing development work on the property.
A new ore vein has been located,
containing high values in silver
and gold. Several open outs were
driven across the vein, which is
over one foot wide.
A tunnel 12 feet in length has
also been driven on another vein.
At the present time, ore has just
commenced to come in, and consists
of galena, ruby silver is also found
in the ore in considerable quantities.
High Grade Shipment
From Esperanza
Four hundred sacks of high
grade ore is being brought down
the hill from the Esperanza mine
by Mr. Al. Falconer, and taken to
the wharf. The ore will be shipped tomorrow or Monday as it is
emoted that it will.be all down-]
by tonight.
Development work at the Esperanza is being carried on by a small
crew, which will be increased in
the near future.
Anyox Footballers Gave
Rupert Scare
The Anyox football team, which
visited the Prince Rupert exhibition
last week, came within an ace of
capturing the cup, emblematic of
the Northern B. C. Championship.
In their first match they suffered
defeat two goals to one, Prinoe
Bupert being the victors. In their
second encounter they emerged
winners over Ocean Falls, three
goals to two. Rupert drew with
Ocean Falls, one all. Therefore
Rupert gained possession of the
trophy by virtue of one win and a
draw. The players representing
Anyox were:—Craggs, Stilly,
Stewart, Campbell, Carter, Bunt-
ain, Jack, Dearlove, Scott. Robinson, Ingram, Dewar.
Two baseball games were staged,
between Rupert and Ketchikan.
The Alaskans took the first contest
six to one. Rupert annexed the
second game eight to seven.
Two local players assisted Prince
Rupert in the games against
Ketchikan. They were Cy. Greenwell who received an S. 0. S. call
from Rupert to come down, and A.
Sinclair, who was spending holidays in the town. Cy. received a
cheque of $50 for his services.
Prominent Mining Man
Looks Over District
Mr. R. R. Wilson, who spent
nearly a week in the upper Kitsault country, at Alice Arm,
examining mining properties, left
on Saturday for Anyox, leaving
there on Monday on board the S.
S. Cardena.
This is the first visit of Mr.
Wilson to the camp, and he was
here merely to look over the ground
with a view of sending in an engineer to thoroughly examine
different properties, if they appeal
to him. His impression of the
country was that it was well mineralized and the formation was
similar to the Salmon river district
at Stewart.
New Residence Under
Construction
Alice Arm is growing steadily
all tlie time, both by new buildings
that are being built or additions
added to existing buildings. The
latest addition to the building
boom that never dies is a 5-roomed
residence being constructed by Mr.
Al. Falconer. It is being built on
the site of his former residence, on
Falls Creek Boulevard. It is two
stories high, and commands a fine
view of the bay and both shores,
and when completed will be among
the most handsome residences ofthe
town.

Duck Hunters Busy
The open season for duck hunting commenced on Monday last,
and the sportsmen of Alice Arm
and Anyox have spent a busy
week, and some good bags have
been secured. These will, however
increase after the sportsmen have
obtained a little more practice.
The Kitsault flats is the favorite
hunting ground for Alice Arm,
while the Anyox gunners range a
'lumber of well known haunts in
the vicinity of the smelter town.
Some people predict a quiet
winter, some a hard winter, and
some both. But don't forget that
winter brings Christmas, also
skating, and then it brings spring,
and spring brings summer and on
we go. ALICE  ARM AND  ANYOX  HERALD,  Saturday,  September 20,  1924

Since we commenced   publication of the Herald over three years
ago, we have received the loyal
support of a   large   number   of
Anyox and Alice Arm people,
both   subscribers and advertisers,
and we have done our best to fulfil our obligations.   It is the impression of a number of local readers that   the Herald is read by
people residing only in the immediate neighbourhood, but such is not
the case.   The Herald is circulated throughout the   continent   of
North America,   and the mining
news carried in its columns is reprinted in numerous mining periodicals and newspapers throughout
the country.   The Herald is the
paper that keeps the name of Alice
Arm before the public, and the
vehicle that broadcasts its happenings to the world.   No new ore
discovery is   made, or   property
bonded, but what you will find a
full report in the Herald, and this
news finds its way into the columns of the country's press keeping
alive the name of Alice Arm, and
informing the public that   Alice
Arm still has mines working, and
prospectors are still in the hills
finding new ore bodies, and adding to the district's wealth.   By
supporting your local paper you are
doing your share in advertising the
district.     Two dollars and fifty
cents will buy you a subscription
for a whole year.   By supporting
your paper you are helping the
district, and incidentally you are
benefiting yourself.

Substantial Increase To
Trail Smelter Capacity
An eighteen months' construction programme at the Trail smelter is being put into force by the
Canadian Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company. It includes
130 tons additional capacity for
the lead refinery, a dressing and
oasting plant for the lead furnace,
and additional roasters. A substantial increase in the zinc refinery is being made. Enlargement of the silver refinery is taking place and a plant installed .in
connection with it for recovering
antimony.

In the old days the word "simple"
meant "foolish;" now it is used only
to make frocks cost more.
Business Success Found
In Advertising
Any man in any business that
depends upon public approval and
patronage for its success has a
perfectly reasonable method open
to him to keep himself and his
business before the buying and
patronizing public. Advertising is
a medium that offers the quickest
route to success, and failure to use
it consigns the whole proposition
to an early failure. If the public
is misinformed or uniformed about
a great deal that is offered for sale,
the reason largely may be discovered in the lack of proper and sustained advertising. Success is not
some mysterious element that
chances to drop iu here or there to
enrich this or that person. It is a
problem that has been solved, and
you will find in nine cases out of
ten advertising has been the
stepping stone.

Development Of
Engineer Mine
Continued from page 2.
of the company.
Development Planned
It is reported that, following the
examination of the old mine, it was
deoided to go about development
on a large soale. Although the
mine has been a big producer du-
ing the years it was operated
under control of the late Capt,
James Alexander, it was never
equipped with sufficient machinery
to mine the property in the most
economical manner.
Of particular interest to mining
men, in connection with the development plans of the new owners,
is a report that it has been deoided
to adopt the Goldfield leasing plan
in the operation of some of the
ground. Leases are given to reliable ininers to work the high
grade veins to a depth of 200 feet or
more on a royalty basis. It. is said
in favor of such a plan that not
only is a good class of miner otbain-
ed but development is rapid.
Increase Power Plant
The new owners are putting in a
large mill. Leases are to be given
on the Mickey vein, Boulder vein
and Governor vein, where rich tell-
uride ore show. The company
will mine the famous "E" vein,
where development is considered
about two years ahead of the mill
capacity.
Electrical machinery is now being installed at the Wayn River,
three miles from the mine, for
development of the necessary power
for the mine and mill.
* The history of the Engineer mine
is one of the romances of the mining industry. The property has
been the source of much litigation
and is even now in court in the
Eastern States where an action is
being carried on by the Smith
heirs, who were awarded the property by the British courts, following the death of Capt. Alexander,
who was drowned when the Northern liner, the Princess Sophia, was
sunk off the Alaska coast.
Lengthy Litigation
The mine was located by a
group of engineers who called the
ground the Engineer mine and
equipped  it with a small   stamp
mill. Capt. Alexander finally obtained the mine on relocation and
his ownership was challenged after
some years by one of the original
looators. A Vancouver lawyer
also sued the estate on a olaim of
part ownership under agreement
with Capt. Alexander. At the
time of the sinking of the northern
passenger boat, Capt. Alexander
was aocompanied by Mrs. Alexander and both were drowned. A
man named Smith, who claimed to
have been Capt. Alexander's
baoker, sought title to the property and he died while the matter
was in oourt. Now, the Smith
heirs are being sued by the brothers
of Mrs. Alexander.
Meanwhile, under the receivership arrangements, the famous
property has passed into the present control.
Sir. Charles Parsons
A red rock sent by a Lytton
man to the provincial chamber of
mines, as a curiosity, may prove to
be a rich find for him. He forwarded the sample as being "where
the Indians got their war paint."
It is a natural pigmont, valuable in
the manufacture of high grade
paints. Investigations are being
made to determine if there is any
quantity of the stone.

QUEBEC—Considerable mining activity prevails in the Rouyn

reports received here. According
to these reports the acreage of mining land stakes out during the
