Alice Arm Branch of
Chamber of Mines
A public meeting was held at
the Pioneer Hotel, on Monday
evening for the purpose of forming
a branch of the B. C. Chamber of
MineB. The meeting was well attended and considerable important
business was disposed of during
the evening.
E. Moss was elected ohairman
and stated why the meeting had
been called. He outlined the proposals made by President Frank
E, Woodside, during his brief visit
to Alice Arm the previous week.
A vote was then taken as to
whether a branch should be formed, which was carried unanimously.
The Chairman stated that the
future outlook of the Alice Arm
branch was exceedingly bright, as
twenty-nine had already paid
their admission fees and six had
promised to pay in the near future,
making a total pf thirty-five, and
that a considerable number had
yet to be interviewed.
Election of officers was then
held, and G. W. Bruggy was elected President, T. W. Falconer, vice-
president, and A. D. Yorke, seoretary.
The gathering of an ore display
representative of the camp was
. the first business under discussion.
President Woodside during his
visit here had stressed on the im-
''' portance of a mineral display, and
hoped that such a displa/ would
reach Vancouver in time for the
Vanoouver Exhibition. After the
exhibition it would be transferred
to the Chamber of Mines. S.
Morrison stated that if samples
from any property were left on the
trail, he would pick them up with
the pack horses and bring them to
town. In order to have this
mineral display shown at the exhibition it will be necessary to
leave here by August 1st. If the
majority of samples arrive later
they will be shipped direct to tlie
Chamber of Mines.
It was resolved to hold a monthly meeting on the third Monday in
each month.
A vote of thanks was tendered
A. Surbich for the free use of. the
hall, and the meeting adjourned
with everyone feeling that they
had, in forming an organization,
accomplished something worth
Good Progress Made on
LaRose Tunnel
The development tunnel being
driven on the LaRose property is
now in over one hundred feet. All
equipment is now at the mine, including an ore car, rails, etc., also
a 2-h.p. gasoline engine which will
be used for blowing gas from the
tunnel, 400 feet of galvanized pipe
to be used for this purpose will
shortly be shipped in. The contractors who have this work in
hand are among the finest hard
rock men in the district, and it is
expected that the tunnel, which
will be 400 feet in length will be
driven in record time.
Fred Stork, federal member for
this district, who has recently returned from his duties at Ottawa,
was a week-end visitor to Anyox
and Alioe Arm. Regarding early
election, Fred said that when he
| left Ottawa, no information was
obtainable as to when an election
would be held.
Influential Copper Men

Col. D. C. .Tackling, president of
the Utah Copper Co. and associated companies, including the Ken-
necott Copper Co. of Alaska, arrived in Anyox on Friday and spent
a Few days looking over the plant.
He was accompanied by Col. J. T.
Crabbs, president of the Granby
Co. and Chas. Bocking, general
manager of the Granby Co., also
II. Npwland, field engineer for the
Jackling interests, A. C. Nickson,
secretary to Col. Jackling. and J.
T. Bowie, general council for the
Western Pacific Railway.
Col. Crabbs is paying Anyox his
annual visit, and ho has already
inspected the companies operations
at Copper Mountain in company
with Mi'. Booking.
After inspecting the Anyox
plant Col. Jackling and party will
proceed to Kennecott, Alaska,
■where they will inspect the big

on Monday evening; the game was
the second-round match of the
Anyox Cup tie, the winners were
slated to play the Beach in the
The Millers were leading, three
to two, up until a minute of the
final whistle, but Buntaiu brought
the teams on even terms with a
nice shot whioh gave the goalie, no
chance to save.
Mine Wins From Smelter 6-3
The Mine took the measure of
the Smelter nine in Tuesday evening's encounter, the score being
six to three.
Ferguson started on the mound
for the winners, but was wild and
ineffective, retiring in the first inning in favor of Les Lane. The
latter had the opposition completely baffled with his spitter, two hits
being all they could gather off his
slants during the performance, returning eight via the strike-out
route. Ross pitched nice ball for
the losers, but was accorded poor
support by his team mates. Ross
was touched for three hits and
fanned seven.

Vandalism at Bowman Lakes
Billy Adams and party of Anyox
who have spe,nt the past fortnight
fishing at Bowman Lakes reports
that the last party that visited
there left the camp in a very dirty
and destructive condition. Cooked food was left in the pots, and
dirty dishes and bedding was left
strewn about the floor. What
was particularly regretable from a
sentimental point of view, was
that the log book of visitors names
and incidents connected with their
visits for the past ten years, was
very badly mutilated and pitched
out of doors in the weeds. Work
of this sort is of the lowest degree
of destruction.
Surprise Picnic Given to Dr.
and Mrs. Whelan
A very pleasant surprise was
given Dr. and Mrs. P. Whelan on
Monday evening, when a surprise
picnio was given in their honor at
the ranch of Barney Buck on Larcom Island. Three boats, the
Effie, Edna and Wildcat conveyed
the 33 people who took part in the
celebration. Coil'ee served hot
from camp fires and piles of eatables were on hand. Yarns were
swapped and songs sang around
the fire, and a thoroughly good
time was spent by all.

New Ore Discovery on
McGrath Mountain
Since the Granby Co. commenced development work on the Standard, MoGrath Mountain has received considerable attention from
prospectors, and that close prospecting is often well rewarded was
again proven when a large ledge
of good ore was discovered on the
Billy Mac recently. This property
is adjacent to the Standard and is
owned by Roy McKinley, who
brought down some fine samples of
ore containing galena, zinc and
lead, Surface stripping the ledge
disclosed the fp6twa.ll. Stripping
across the ledge was then undertaken for a distance of thirty
feet, and the hanging wall not
in sight.
Three men are employed in
stripping, and it is planned by the
owner to keep this force at work
for a considerable time.
Ore Samples Wanted
For Exhibition
It is the wish of the Alice Arm
branch of the B. C. Chamber of
Mines that an ore display be sent

and Al. Falconer have both signified
their willingness to bring any
samples to town left on the trail.
Samples may be left at T. W. Falconer's or Bruggy's stores. If
enough... samples oan be procured

your samples. It does not cost
you anything.
It is hoped to send out a display
that will be a credit to the camp.

bits or a dollar. "Iodine"' Hill was

In organizing a branch of the
B. C. Chamber of Mines, Alice
Arm is now in a position to make
known her mineral wealth and also the development of this wealth
to the outside public. Such an
organization has been needed for a
long time, and now that the
wheels have been set in motion it
is the duty of all good citizens to
keep them turning. The officers
elected are men who have splendid opportunities of keeping in
touch with mining operators and
others, through their business dealings with them. Although the
future success of the organization
depends a great deal upon the
officers, it must be borne in mind
that the attitude of the public
spells the ultimate success or
failure of the organization. Give
your whole hearted support to the
officers at all times and the dollar
you have invested, or contemplate
investing will pay you huge dividends. If you don't boost, don't
knock. Any fool can find fault,
but it takes brains to build up.
A man who takes a gloomy
view of the future of the copper
mining industry is in our opinion
merely looking for trouble. He
sees any hole in the doughnut, but
never sees the appetizing morsel
that always rings it around.
Reliable statistics covering operations of 1924 are now available
and make most interesting reading. Certainly nothing can be
found in them to justify the pessimism that exists in some quarters.
For instance, the United States
came into 1924 with a surplus, of
140,70b1 tons of refined metal and
passed out of it with that stock reduced to 124,250 tons. Production from virgin and blister, reached 1,133,473 tons, recovery of
scrap totalled 32,522 tons, and imports accounted for 72,955 tons,
making total supply 1,379,656 tons.
Of that amount, 498,931 tons was
exported; 756,575 went into domestic delivery, leaving, as mentioned before, surplus of 124,250
tons, equal to less than nine per
cent of the whole availiable supply
—about one-tenth of a year's supply—say five weeks. If that were
not enough to make the heart of
the producer glad, lie can take
further courage from the fact that
statisticians agree that world consumption will soon be running
ahead of production, with Europe
still to be heard from as a buyer
at normal levels.—South Western

Trail Copper Smelter to
Commence Operations
The copper plant of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company will be started by the last of
July or the first of August, according to authentic information received by the Trail News.
For some time the Granby company at Allenby have been making improvements in their concentrator and trackage and about
everything is in readiness for operations.
It is understood that the Consolidated already has a large stock
of copper ore on hand-—so much in
fact, that it is desirable that it be
treated, and the copper plant will
soon be pouring forth its golden
colored stream.
The resumption of this plant
after a long shut down will be a
source of gratification to Trail and

Granby Co. Will Soon
be Operating Copper
Indications are that operations
at the mine at Copper Mountain
and at the mill at Allenby will be
commenced before the end of the
present month, as announced some
lime ago by Chas. Booking, general
manager of the Granby Company,
at a luncheon tendered by the
hoard of trade in the Hotel Princeton. Mr. Bocking announced that
it was expected to have the wheels
turning in July, and that while
operations at the start would be on
a limited scale, owing to experimental work that would have to
be done, the plant would be running full capacity before the end
of tho year.
Repair and reconstruction work
at the big mill is well advanced
and Mr. Smith, the general manager of the Allenby Copper Company, stated that it will be in
shape for operation by the time
the railroad spur to the Mountain
is ready for use. That this will
be effected within the time mentioned there is little room to doubt.
The work of restoring the tracks
into condition for use has been effected as far as the tunnel. Between the tunnel and the Honeysuckle Cut—a distance of about a
half a mile—there is a small slide
that" will require possibly not more
than a day to remove, and by the
first of next week the shovel will
be tackling the "Honeysuckle,"
the last real obstruction that
blocks the road to the mine.
At Allenby there is now close to
150 men on the payroll and the
place is beginning to assume much
of the life and activity that was
manifest on previous occasions
when things were moving. The
citizens there are reorganizing
their community club and baseball
club and a dance, under ' the
auspices of the latter, is being held
in the dining room, with its ample
accomodation, tomorrow (Friday)
evening. The people of Princeton
