Moose Orchestra Was
Thirteen years ago last Thursday
March 17th the first copper furnace
was blown in at Anyox by the
Granby Co. This event was an
outstanding one in the history of
the north, and the whole province.
Since that date up to the end of
1925, Anyox has produced 72,390
ozs. gold, 3,830,260 ozs. silver, and
331,187,931 pounds of copper. To
this stupendous total can be added
39,000,000 pounds of copper, which
was the approximate production for
1926.
During the past thirteen years the
payroll of the Granby Co. has averaged well over 1000 men who received approximately $2,000,000.
each year in wages. The purchase
of supplies of all kinds necessary for
the operation of the plant accounted
for an additional $2,000,000 per
year. Thus in thirteen years the
Granby Co. have paid out a total of
$52,'XX),000. This money has been
drawn from raw material, namely, a
low grade copper ore, and brains,
and energy have converted it into
wealth for the benefit ofthe province
as a whole.
In additidn to the above figures
they, have paid enormous sums in
taxes, which has materially helped
to relieve taxation, and provided the
government with funds for the upbuilding of the province. Before
the first furnace was blown in, the
Granby Co. spent millions of dollars
developing the Hidden Creek mine,
building   smeltei,   town,   wharfs,
power house, and scores of other
projects so that everything should
be in readiness for continual operation. It is therefore safe to S'«y
that the expenditure of the Granby
Co. since they first became interest
ed at Anyox is in the neighborhood
of $60,OO0,006.
The above figures are ample evi
dence of what part the mining
industry plays in the prosperity of
the province. Its development helps
everyone and hurts no one. The'
extraction of ore from the ground is
the cleanest method of creating
wealth in existence. Its increased
development is something that should
be fostered until the limit has been
reached and many more such plants
abound in the neighborhood.
Popular Alice Arm Couple
Wed in Vancouver
The wedding of Mr. J. A. Anderson and Miss Aroheua Molver of
Alice Arm was celebrated in Vancouver on Thursday Maroh 10th.
The ceremony was quietly performed at the home of Mr. and Mrs. S.
F. D. Roe, 663 Fourteenth Ave. E.
Vanoouver.
Mr. Anderson is well known in
the whole north country. He was
one of the pioneers of Stewart and
came to Alice Arm at the commencement of the Dolly Varden
operations. Miss Molver came to
Alice Arm last year.
The happy couple expect to
return home on Monday next, when
their many friends will seize the
opportunity of wishing them all
happiness in their future life.
On Monday evening at 8 p.m,
Maroh 21st. the Parent Teacher
Association will hold a meeting in
the Public School. Mr. Fraser
will be the speaker of the evening.
His subjeot will be along educational lines.
A hearty welcome is extended to
everybody.

Alice  Arm Celebrates  St
Patrick's Day
The seventeenth of Old Ireland
did not' pass by without recognition
on the part of Alioe Arm.
In the afternoon the ohildren of
the town were the guests of Mrs. L,
O'Connor, and an enjoyable time
was spent by the juveniles.
During the evening Mr. and Mrs.
J. Graham were hosts to a card
party and dance at the Alice Arm
Hotel. A large number attended.
Bridge was played until midnight,
the winners being, ladies' first
prize, Mrs. M. Smith; Men's first
prize, Mr. A. Falconer; consolation
prize, Mr. F. L. Housley.
Following refreshments, dancing
was enjoyed until the small hours,
when a very enjoyable evening terminated all too soon.
The editor of the Grand Forks
Gazette gives a prize eaoh year to
whoever gathers the first wild
buttercups. The editor of the
Herald is willing to do likewise
regarding Anyox.
Last week, in our news columns,
regarding the Mine Club's Masquerade Dance we stated that the Mine
Melodians' Orchestra were responsible for the bewitching music. Our
notice has been drawn to the fact
that this was an error, for it was the
Moose orchestra, who were responsible for the excellent music dispensed, and whose splendid rendition
made the dancers loth to leave.
This orchestra, who is creating
an enviable reputation is composed
of the following artistes:
J. W. Webster, piano; Robt.
Brooks, violin; Harry Ward, saxophone; J. J. H. Varnes, trombone;
O. J. Hutchings, drums. They are
open for engagements at all times.
Occasionally errors will creep in
even in the best of publications, and
we are always pleased to make a
correction when this embarrasing
event occurs.

During next August the Imper
ial and Metallurgical Congress will
be held in Canada and a thousand
engineers from various parts of the
Empire will have an opportunity
to inspect the leading mining developments. Two tours have been
planned for their benefit; the first
group will leave Montreal, August
23rd, and travel through Ottawa,
Toronto, Niagara Falls, Port Col-
borne, Hamilton, Sudbury, North
Bay, South Lorrain, Cobalt, Hail-
bury, Kirkland Lake, Timmins and
Cochrane. From there it will,
turn west, stopping at Minaki,
Estevan, Banff, Calgary, Fernie,
•Kimberley, Kootenay Landing,
Nelson, Tadnac or (Trail), Princeton, Vancouver, Britannia and
Victoria. It will return east on
September 16th. via. Vancouver,
Jasper Park, Stereo, Cadomin, Edmonton, Wainright, Saskatoon,
Winnipeg, Fort William and Port
Arthur, Cochrane, Taschereau,
' Rouyn, Quebec, Thetford Mines
and Sherbrooke, arriving again in
Montreal on the morning of September 28th. exactly five and one
half weeks after the opening of the
Congress, having travelled approximately 7,500 miles.
The second group will accompany the first as far as Cochrane on
the outward journey and then turn
east, visiting Rouyn, Arvida, Quebec, Thetford Mines, Sherlock,
Minto, Msncton, New Glasgow,
and Sydney. It will embark there
for Port-aux-Basque in Newfoundland, where it will cross the Island
to St. John's.
The main object.of the Congress
will be a thorough inspection of
the mineral resources of the country.
Sessions and speeches will be subsidiary; days spent in the mining
camps, and discussions with operators, will be of first importance.
The personal and the itinerary
should make this Congress one of
the most interesting events of the
year.
Those who mapped out the
route of the members of the congress
ignored the northern portion of
British Columbia. Instead of turning about-face at Vancouver and
proceeding to Jasper, why was it
not arranged for the party to come
Canadians Investing In
Own Mines
Addressing a meeting in Toron
to, Ontario, recently, Dr. J. Mack
intosh Bell stated that Canadians
derived the greatest financial benefit from tlieir own mineral resources. He said that 54 per oent of
the shareholders iu Canadian
mines were Canadians; 30 per cent
Americans; 13 per oent British,
and 2 per cent citizens of the other
countries, Dr. Bell regretted that
British capital was suoh a small
part in the Canadian Mining industry. However he said their
were real signs of increasing interest in Great Britain, and he
thought that they were realizing
that, despite some inevitable fiascos
file Canadian mines were making
vast strides.
Roy Clothier Buys Slocan
Property
Roy L. Clothier, of Victoria, well
known in the north and especially
Stewart, where he resided for a
number of years, has bought the
Dardenelles group of claims near
Sandon, in the Slocan. The Dardenelles was formerly owned by
Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, of
Vancouver, and the late Captain
Charles Clarke and Messrs. Edward
White and J. T. L. Meyers of Victoria. The workings were closed
down twenty years ago owing to
there being so little demand for
lead and zinc at that time. Mr.
Clothier intends to commence operations on the property in June.

north and leave Prince Rupert for
Jasper via the C. N. R. The
Empire's largest copper producing
plant at Anyox could then be inspected and the rich mineral districts of Alice Arm and Stewart
could also be investigated. The
mineral districts of Hazelton and
Smithers could also be examined
while enroute for the east. The
northern portion of British Columbia
is the only part of the Dominion
of Canada, that will not be visited
No delay should be made by public bodies in the north to rectify
the grave error made in eliminating
the richest mineral district of the
province from the visitors' itenerary
In this respect Alice Arm can

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 j
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees. _ j
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 dono
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 oovering each of the six mineral Survey

Radio Industry  Large
Copper Consumer
Locomotives May Install
Copper Fittings
In 1924 the Radio industry ooir
sumed betweeavtwo and three
million pounds* of oopper in the
manufacture of-'teceiving sets, both
amateur and faqtory made. In
the last two year's this consumption has shown .a surprising increase. The pon^piption of copper
in radio is noW!funuing between
eight and ten million pounds per
year. One pf", the newest refinements is "Shielding"—enolosing
each circuit of a set in a grounded
sheet copper box—which may ofi
itself in a year's time increase the
figure given above to'sixteen oi
twenty million pounds.
European countries have always
been large consumers of oopper for
locomotive lire boxes aud boiler
tubes, instead of steel, as is the
practice on railroads iu the United
States and Canada. Copper.Hre-
boxes and copper or brass boiler
tubes are standard ou the railroads
of England, France, Germany,
Belgium, and Russia and in many
of their colonies, and dominions.
In order touring to the attention of American railroad oflioials
the advantages! which European
railroads have found in copper
equipped locomotives—such as
improved heat transfer and lowered maintenance, especially in bad:
water districts—the Copper and
brass Research Association is now
co-operating with a well-known
western railroad on complete service tests of a powerful locomotive
which is equipped with a firebox
and copper boiler tubes. The number of locomotives on the railroads
of the United States totals over
seventy thousand, and the amount
of copper sheet and tube which
might be applied to any one locomotive would vary from ten thousand to thirty thousand pounds.

Divorces in B. C. Increasing
Divorces granted in Canada during the year were ten per oent
higher than in 1925 aud were the
largest in number so far recorded
in any one year. The total for all
provinces was 608 against 551 in
1925. The number in»Briti8h Columbia was 166. Alberta being
next highest with 154; Tlie largest increases were alio in'the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia, 53 and 17 per went respectively.
Canadians Own Big Percentage of Homes
The number of Canadian liomes
is 2,001,512, according to census
returns; 62 per cent, are owned
and 38 per oent are' rented. The
average Canadian family is 4.62,
and the proportion of men to worn
eu—which is exceptionally high—
is 103 to 100. Canada spends more
than $120,000,000 annually on education.
Anaconda Co. Closes Mines
Anaconda Copper Miuiug Company suspended operations in February at the Mountain "View and
Steward mines. Unofficial estimates place the number of men
thrown out of employment at
1500. The unsatisfactory condition of the copper market is the
cause given.
Home for Old Miners
If a bill before- the Arizona
State legislature becomes a law,
50,000 acres of state land will be
sold to provide funds for the erection of a state hospital for old and
disabled miners. The bill has
already been approved by the senate oohtinittee as a whole.

Alice Arm Lots
Now is the Time to Buy
Alice Arm will very soon become a mining town of considerable importance. The mining industry is undoubtedly on
the eve of big developments, which means a big payroll and a
much larger town. Increased activity will result in placing
good residential and business lots at a premium. At the
present lots can be secured at attractive prices and on easy terms
BUSINESS    LOTS    FROM    $200   TO    $500
RESIDENTIAL   LOTS   FROM   $200  TO  $300
Terms made to suit buyers.     See Stephen  Dumas,   our
agent, and build where you don't have to move.

J. M. Morrison, who has spent
the winter in Anyox, arrived yesterday. He plans to spend some
time here.
P. Gallagher, who has spent the
week in Anyox receiving medical
attention, returned home yesterday.
Following last week's daily
small snow storms, this week has
been one of brilliant sunshine, with
orisp evenings. The snow promises to be off the ground quite as
early as in former years. The bare
ground is already commencing to
show on the Wharf Road.
No wise man ever questions a
ohild in public unless he is sure of
the answer.
