Fire at Anyox
Spectacular Blaze Does
Damage to Plant
The worst fire in the history of
jlnyox occurred last week-end. It
Started on Saturday afternoon,
•nd reached its height on Sunday
jhidnight. At three p.m. on Monday morning all possibility of the
Jesfcruotion of the town had passed
tnd the heavy rain falling a few
tours later completed the work of
[he fire fighters, and the safety of
ihe town was assured.
The fire originated at the Mine
jnoinei-ator, and under a stiff
>reeze it got away It swept
towards Oarney Lake, and within
in hour word came through that
ihe. pipe line from the Lake to the
poke Plant was burned through
md the water supply cut off
■Under'the burning heat of the
past few weeks the woods and
;rouud were as dry as powder, and
ihe fire swept unchecked to the
jeaoh,. east of the Coke Plant.
Firefighters were out throughout
ihe night and on Sunday morning'
lill danger .seemed to have passed.
)n Sunday afternoon, however,
he wind changed, and swept the
ref over the ridge towards towni
&# p.m,,the Mine road was burn-.
i rihrough and communications cut
'awards evening the wind increas-
d,in violence and carried the fire
dross the flats between':the Beach
nd Mine.
In the meantime, the wind' had
|arried the fire to the peninsular
cross the bay and also to Larkum
slaud, and as the sun was setting
Ike a ball of fire, the -coast for a
jistanoe of eight or nine miles was
l flames, presenting a wierd and
wful sight and the town of Anyox
ith its costly plant and the homes
! over.2000 people appeared, from
tie harbor to be in grave peril.
It is at times like this that the
■est in a man rises to the surface,
nd his true nature is shown.
When the real men take control
,nd shine among their fellpW men
ike a brilliant star, and Anyox
irdved that she possesses lots of
moh men on Sunday night, for the
nanner in which they jumped into
.he tight On the outskirts of .the
iown, at Hill Street, School Street
md' Straw Ross Alley, was a
iplendid sight. They saved the
)ig public sohool on the Mine road,
tlthough surrounded by fire. The
Union Churoh and Manse was
wept so quickly that it was im-
wssible to save them.
It was, however, at the oom-
nencement of the dwelling houses
hat the big fight was staged, for
lad the fire obtained a hold on one
mildiug it would in all probability
tave meant that the fire would
Save penetrated to the centre of

re swept .to the base of the build-
ags, but the fire fighting heroes
.eld their ground, and with water
renohed clothes ■ they worked in
elays amid the intense heat, with
lose lines and buckets, and held
he fire in check. It was a fight

All efforts to hold the fire in

Mining News of
Alice Arm Camp
Messrs. Miles Donald and Wm.
McLean came down.on Wednesday from the Standard group, on
the east slope of .McGrath mountain, where they have been doing
development work. The work
done this year has been the extension of the tunnel, whioh is now in
a distance of 63 feet. The tunnel
is being driven to cross out a ledge
of high grade zino ore. This ledge
has been stripped on the surface
for a distance of over 80 feet in
length. It is ten feet wide, and
the ore is zinc blende, from which
average assays have given returns
of 45 per cent. zinc.,
Another large lead has been exposed by open cuts on the property
This lead runs up the creek and
interscets the high grade zinc lead.
The ore is composed of calcite lime,
and barite, and carries some zinc.
The great drawback to the development of the Standard and
adjoining properties is the absence
of a pack horse trail, everything
having to be packed up the hill by
the owners, and this fact greatly
retards the development of one of
the most promising mineral sections
of the district.
Messrs, Tom McRostie and James
Wier, of Anyox have been doing
development work on the Two W;
claims, on Bouhdy; Creek for the
past week, the work being done
consists of surface stripping of ore
yeins...   ' ■';'. /
The'Twd W. claims are situated
about six miles up the .creek, two
miles above the Mohawk, and
before pack horses with supplies
could be taken to the Mohawk it
was necessary to out out the trail
now open to all owners of properties taking in supplies to the
Roundy Creek distriot.
Mr. S. Dumas arriyed in town
on Wednesday from the Ourah
group of claims; The Ourah joins
the Wolf on the west and possesses
some fine bodies of high grade
silver Ore, samples of which have
assayed 270 ozs. silver, per ton,
Six open cuts were made .on one of
the ledges this year, by S. Dumas
and A. Davidson, aud the quantity
and quality of the ore uncovered
have well repaid theirlabor.   -
Mr. Oscar Gray left during the
week with a crew of men for the
Sunset Group; ou Roundy creek.
Mining equipment and supplies
have also been taken in, The
Keystone Mining Company, who
recently bonded the property have
made the first payment to the
owners, The company have ample
funds for development work and a
programme of wprk will ;be outlined on the arrival of Mi". Thornly,
mining engineer to the company.
Messrs. Chais, Gray and J. Wier
of Anyox commenced work this
week On the Spectator group of
claims, which are situated hear the
LaRose, on the south side. < Fifteen
feet of tunnel have been driven on
the property and this tunnel will
probabjy be extended and surface
strippings of the ore bodies carried
Tom MoRostie is ,now( working
on the Verona group on Lime
Creek and will do considerable
work this year in order to determine the l size of the ore bodies,
the vein is from one to three feet
wide   and   samples   taken   have

Be Careful with Fire
The fire which occurred last
week-end in Anyox should bring
home to everyone the necessity qf
being careful with fire at all times,
and especially the dry spells of the
summer when everything i» ready
to burn at the slightest spark. The
rapidity with which the fire travelled was a revalation to all who saw
it. We read of forest fires laying
waste the country for miles in different parts of the Dominion, but
we do not realize the destructive-
ness and misery caused, probably
by some one's carlessness, until it
is brought to our, own doorsteps.
Be careful with fire at all times.
Don't think that because you are
a few miles from home camping
that it is alright to be less careful.
Be careful in the house and out of
'doors, and let us try and make
this the only lire around Anyox
this summer.
The Copper
Financial and Market News gathered
by private direct wires from the
world's market centres by
Burdick, Logan & Company, Limited
787, Granville Street,
Vancouver, B. 0.
Anyox is Largest Copper
The Vancouver press still coiv
tinue to publish statements that
Britannia Mine is the largest copped producer in' the British Empire,
hut such is not the case. The
itidden Creek mine of the Granby
Company produces over 2,000,000
pounds more copper annually than
the Britannia, and when the new
concentrating plant at Anyox is,
operating, this amount will be considerably increased.
The Hook Exposes
Vancouver—"The Hook" the new
weekly paper edited by J. S. Cowper
is demanding to know,whether there
is one law for salaried government
officials and another for ordinary
people. Following the exposure made
in The Hook recently that an official
of the Inland Be venue department had
stolen $342 from a Japanese fisherman's home atSteveston while supposedly searching for a still, the case was
brought to trial, but was withdrawn
in court on the understanding that
the department would discipline the
official in question. "In the meantime
tbe police chief of Richmond is holding the $342, restitution to the Jap
having been made by the revenue
officers' friends.
Special to the Herald
Boston—Oopper market at present
is in the hands .of small dealers and
speculators. Among the large agencies the American Metal Co. is the
only one that has been willing to shade
the 15 cent'price. It sold copper early
last week at 14 3-4 cents a pound;
speculator and second-hand dealers
are offering at 141-2 and 14 5-8 cents.
The amount changing' hands are small
however, and the temporary lull m
buying has left the market open to
small sellers. Metals Sales Corpora-,
tion and other large agencies are still
holding to 15 cents for third quarter
delivery. While no actual cancellation
have been reported, one of the large
brass mills in Connecticut told its copper agents "to hold up until further
notice delivery pf metal ordered for
edrly in July. The mill had received
like notice from one of its large customers to postpone shipments of brass
for three or four weeks.
With recession in prices through
sales of weakly held metal has come a
noticeable slackening in export de.
mand. Export business was very good
the first four months of the year, but
now the demand is quieter than for
some weeks, One New York copper
agency wrote this week to it's produc
ing company: ''Don't believe there
is any chance of further recession in
copper prices. The large producers
are not pressing the metal for sale;
they are in liquid shape and are not
generally in need of cash, If producers will be patient pending this lull
in metal buying, I am sure consumers
will have to come into the market
before the summer is very old. I know
of three fabricators who are operating
on extremely low stocks. A half cent
advantage in copper prices would bring
a big buying demand into the market
immediately." „
Foreign markets are at present unusually prone to accept bearish rumors
regarding the copper situation. This
explains much of the foreign weakness
in price. Becently the London- market was worked up over the rumor
that the Copper Export Association
was about to do some more financing.
There is "absolutely, no basis for this
report. Three or four months ago the
Export Association paid up all notes
and bonds, and has since sold all copper that was subject to the former
bond issue1. Foreign sales are being
met out of current production, and
there is no possibility of any new financing at this time. Yet London listens
to the rumor and reputable houses
capable for information regarding it.
Another rumor that is continually
being resurrected abroo/d is that th»
Copper Export Association is going to
be dissolved. This again has no basis
in fact.
The latest rumor is that American
copper producers have grossly misrepresented copper on hand, and that
instead of stocks of refined copper in

Mine Defeats Smelter
Team on Friday
In a closely fought contest on Friday,
evening the Mine defeated the Smeltei
half club by the score of 5 to 3. The
Mine were presented with a run in the
second inning. Bob Stewart reached..
third on a long drive to left centre
And stole home with three balls and
two strikes on the batter, (who struck
at the ball making the third strike and
also the third man out; therefore Stew-'
art's run according to the large number of spectators, should not have been
counted. They made, four more in the
third inning however, on three hits
and an error. '       v;"
The Smelter made their runs in the:
fifth, sixth and seventh. .Fortin
pitched nice ball for the losers allowing only six hits and fanning eight.
Ferguson pitching for the mine was
touched for eight hits and fanned four
of the opposing batsmen. Bob Stewart was the individnal star getting
three hits out of as many trips to the
plate, one of them being a three base
clout. .Earl Anderson played a nice
game at second base, the Mine would
do as well by using him there in the
future. The game is being contested
by the Smelter team. '■

Fire at Anyox Last

and as the powder magazine was
in the zone of fire orders were
given for all 'women and children'
on the Beaoh to vacate their homes
in case of an explosion and move to
the west of the,slag pile, and those
on the hill fpund shelter in the
At about 11 p.m. the magazine
blew up, but luckily a large amount
of powder had, burned, and the
quantity exploding, while breaking
a number of windows throughout
the town, especially the. larger
one's, did not do any considerable
damage. .   ,.,.. :
The actual damage done by the
.fire was the burning of about 50
feet of pipe line from" G&rney Lake
to the Coke Plant, and also some
trestles;:, the Union Church and
Manse; halfra-mile of the Mine
planked roadway;- the damaging
of several trestles on the railroad
from Mine to Smelter; and the
buildings at Granby Point, across
the bay. The power line to the
Mine was burnt down on Sunday
night, telephone lines were down,
and all communication was cut off
until Monday morning, when messengers got through.
The burning of the railroad
trestles necessitated the closnig
down of the smelter, but it is,;' ex-
pepted that repairs will be made
so that operations can be resumed
by the middle of next week. The
road to the Mine was rebuilt and
open for traffic 24 hours after it
was burnt put.
In an interview With the Herald
on Tuesday, Mr- H. 8L- Munroe,
general-nihnager, stated that while
the fire had done some damage,
under the circumstances, he felt
that it was fortunate that the
damage had not been more extensive. He paid a great tribute to
the men who fought like demons
amid tbe • suffocating smoke and
intense heat, and it was through
the tenacity and super-human
efforts of the men of Anyox, that
the plant and dwelling houses are
practically intact today.

Mine Defeat Elks at Football
The Elks' defeat at the hands of the
Mine Football squad, on Thursday
evening June 12th. by a score of 2 to
nil. The Elks were forced to pick vip
three players out of the stands to com-,
plete their team. But never-the-less a
good game resulted. The Mine scored
one in the first half on a penalty kick,
Ourrie converting. Pynne scored the
second goal in the last half. Hart was
the referee and handled the game to
the satisfaction of both the players
and spectators.

Anyox Fire Notes
Messrs J. Martin and J. Blaney
fire chiefs, were the busy men of
the camp, cool and collected but
getting the work done, in a business like manner.
Except for a few soratches no
one was hurt.
The boys fighting the fire on
Sunday night had the bay at the
back of them and the fire in front.
They stuok and won; heroes every
one of them, and instead of the
women and ohildren coming home
to a heap of smouldering ruins
everything was as usual. Except
those who packed their furniture
Those coming into the harbor
on Sunday night aboard launches
declared that the grandeur of the
scene was indescribable and a sight
never to be forgotten.
The rain arrived just in time to
save the Larkum Island sawmill.
General Manager H. S. Munroe
took personal charge of the fire
fighting operations and on Sunday
night on a front of half-a-mile he
was in the front line throwing his
weight into the danger spots
and marshalling his forces against
the onslaught.
Mrs J. Wier remained at her
post on the telephone exchange
after all women and ohildren had
left town in order to keep the telephone system working at a vital
Mr. Chas. Wing, superintendent
of Housing and Community Faoil
ities, who is always on the spot
when danger threatens, was, as
usual, a leader in the fight.
A smart aohieyment of the
Granby Co. was the way in which
over half a mile of the .Mine Boad
which had been entirely burnt out
was repaired and opened for traffip
in less than twenty four hours.
There will be plenty of work for
glaziers in Anyox for a long time
yet to come. Both at the Mine
and Beaoh we noticed soores of windows smashed.
The conduct of the women and
children during the fire was admirable, the women folk bearing up
under trying circumstances with
great fortitude.
At the mine perhaps the most
seriously damaged house was that
of Mr. and Mrs. Tuttle; out of
twenty five windows only half of
one remains whilst serious interior
damage was done to the residence
of Mr. and Mrs. Patton.
The Becreation Hall bears a
shattered appearance, glass will
be at a premium shortly.
Autos played a prominent part
during the fire in conveying water
along the blazing Mine road.
Arrangements are being made
to hold a Musical Festival at
Prince Bupert, in connection with
