Anyox Moose Members
Visit Alice Arm
Brothers
On Sunday, Alice Arm were tho
guests to thirty-four members of
Anyox Lodge Loyal Order of
Moose, who spent the day in town
in order to meet and fraternize
with their brothers of Alice Arm.
The party arrived on tlie Awake
at 11 a.m. and long before they
landed the strains of the orohestra
were wafted ashore, indicating
that the boys were in good spirits,
and bubbling with enthusiasm,
On landing at the wharf a procession was formed, with tho
orchestra leading, and the town
was entered with the orchestra
playing a lively March, which
drew large crowds of sightseers.
The march was continued to tlie
Pioneer Hotel, which was the
headquarters for the day.
Dining the afternoon, a Lodge
meeting was held, which was well
attended both by the visitors and
the Alioe Arm members. The
meeting was especially appreciated by the latter, who seldom have
the opportunity of attending a
Lodge meeting, and it was for this
reason that the members of Anyox
Lodge pay Alice Arm an annual
visit.
The Funeral Service of the late
Mr. D. Falconer, which took place
previous to the meeting was attended by a large number of
■ visitors, who desired to show their
respect for one of Alice Arm's most
esteemed citizens.
Ideal weather prevailed throughout the day, and the beauty spots
'of Alice Arm were explored fully
by the visitors, who rejoiced at the
-.sight of such wealth of foliage and
flowers, which can not be obtained
in the smelter town.
The party left at 7 p.m.,
thoroughly satisfied with their
visit, and hoping to again spend a
few days here before the summer
is past.
Dolly Varden Railway
Open For Traffic
The Dolly Varden railway was
open for traffic through to Camp 8
on Tuesday, and since that time
numerous supplies have been
freighted through for the Toric
mine, the government road camps,
and numerous prospectors and
property owners. The quick disappearance of snow, coupled with the
fast work made by the government
clearing crew was responsible for
the road being opened earlier than
anticipated.
A crew of men are now clearing
the trail from the end of the steel
through to the Glaoier. On the
completion of this work, the trail
to the Climax property will be
cleared, aud a new trail construct,
ed from the Climax to the Last
Chance.
A new trail is being constructed
at East Creek, about three miles
in length, and this will {ill a long
felt want.
Work is also under way diverting the course of the Kitsault,
about 2j miles from Alice Arm.
At this point, owing to a log jam,
the river has swung to the east
bank, and there is great danger of
it cutting a new course through
the woods, over-running the flats
and rendering useless the new suspension bridge.
Fifty Ton Concentrating
Mill For Toric Mine
Mining operations at the Toric
will shortly be going at full blast
again. Supplies of all kinds are
being taken in over the Dolly Varden railway, and the development
of the big ore bodies will be
carried on with renewed vigor.
The Consolidated Homestake Min-
jng and Development Co. will install a 50 ton concentrator mill
this year, for treating the ore. A.
C. H. Gerhardi, managing director,
is expected to arrive in Alice Arm
next Monday,

Mr. D. Falconer of Alice
Arm Passes Suddenly
Away
The town of Alice Arm suffered
a severe loss on Friday evening,
May 29th., when Duncan Falconer passed peacefully away at
the home of his son, T. W. Falconer. The end came quite unexpected, and the cause of death was
due to cerebral hemorrhage.
The late Mr. Falconer had reached the ripe old age of seventy-nine.
He had resided here with his two
sons, Al. Falconer and T. W. Falconer for the past live years, except
or brief visits to Vancouver. He
vas numbered among the most
esteemed citizens of the town, always having a kindly word and
smile for everyone, and was
especially a favorite with the children, fie retained his full faculties right up to the last moment,
and was apparently in good health
when the end suddenly came.
Mr. Falconer had enjoyed a
hearty supper, and had engaged in
a game of throwing horse shoes
during the evening. At the time
of his death he was playing with
his grand-daughter Juanita, on the
veranda, when he collapsed. He
was carried upstairs, but life was
found to be extinct.
Mr. Falconer was born in
Toronto in 1846, and was one of
the Dominion's true western
pioneers. He left Bruce county,
Ontario for Manitoba in 1877,
where he engaged in fanning until
1903, when he CKiue to Vancouver.
He spent a number of years farming at Aldergrove, since that time.
He leaves to mourn his loss,
three sons, T. W. Falooner and Al.
Falconer of Alice Arm, and Lionel
Falconer of Winnipeg, and a
daughter, Mrs. F. G. Forrest of
Vancouver; also three sisters. Mrs.
E. Colbeck of Chicago, Mrs. A. Mo
Gill of Paisley, Ontario, and Mrs.
James Caithness of Everett,
Washington, and two brothers,
John Falconer of Munro, Washington, and Alex. Falconer of Texas,
(J. S. A.
He held a life membership in
the Masonic Order, and was also a
member of the Orange Order.
The Funeral Service was held
at the Anglican Church on Sunday afternoon. The officiating
clergyman being Rev,  Rushbrook.
Practically the entire population
of Alice Arm was present in order
to pay their respects to the grand
old man, who, through his many
acts of kindness had won a place
in their hearts. A large number
of the Anyox members of the
Loyal Order of Moose—who were
visiting in town—also attended.
The Service, which was held in
the open air, outside the Church
was most impressive. Rev. Rushbrook delivered a very instructive
address. He dwelt on the simple,
God-fearing life led by the deceased, and exhorted his hearers to
follow the teachings of Jesus
Christ through their lives, so that
they could also pass into eternity
fearlessly and willingly.
Worshipful Past Master J. E.
Ellis, of the Masonic Order, spoke
a few words at the request of Rev.
Rushbrook, and placed the apron
of the deceased on the coffin.
The music was kindly supplied
by J. W. Webster, organist; S.
Armstrong and
violins, members of Anyox Lodge
Loyal Order of Moose. Beautiful
floral tributes filled the Church.
The body was taken to   Van
couver by the Cardena on Monday,
aooompanied  by Al. and T.   W,
Falconer, and enterment will take
place  in   the   Masonic    Plot   at

Pathfinder Troop Anyox No. 2
were guests of the L.O.O.M., when
Dr. Learoyd on behalf of the
Moose Lodge presented to the
scouts the colors of the Empire
aud also the Canadian Ensign. In
a stirring speech the Doctor reminded the scouts that loyalty
was the duty of every citizen and
that it gave him great pleasure to
hand over the Union Jack, which
was a symbol of loyalty. After
the Moose greeting the boys returned to their headquarters
proudly bearing the flag at their
head.

Sunday in order to examine the
buildings of the Granby Company's
logging camp, with the view of
installing a summer camp there
for families of Anyox during July
and August.
It is understood that the buildings are satisfactory.. Some
changes are necessary, however,
aud these will be 'carried out during the present month, so that the
oamp will be in readiness when
the school summer holidays commence.
The camp stands on the extensive Kitsault flats, on the east side
of the Kitsault river, and the location is ideal. The flats, which are
as level as the prairie, abound with
wild flowers, while first-class fishing can be obtained in'the Illiance
river or at Falls Creek. The new
bridge across the Kitsault gives
easy accessto Alice Arm and the
Kitsault valley, as does also the
new bridge to the Illiance valley.

Big Copper Producers
May Curtail Output
As has been so often the case
since the resumption of copper
mining iii 1922, a spasm of talking
curtailment is agitating the industry. We say "talking," because experience has frequently
been that the procedure of cutting
production progressed little
farther than that stage. Anaconda, through a "spokesman" at
25 Broadway, has "let it be
known" that its production in tlie
United States will be cut by 5,-
000,000 lb. and in Chile by 2,500,-
000. No formal announcement to
this effect has been made, but
when the vice-president in oharge
of operations at Butte contradicted
published reports, ■ reaffirmation
came from the spokesman. The
assumption is that a material cut
will be made at Butte, at Inspir"
ation, and at Chuquicamata.
One feature of the report that
surprised many was the statement
that Anaconda recently has been
producing 25,000,000 lb. per month
in Montana. Even though this
was smelter production, and included metal from Butte &
Superior and other small shippers,
the Anaconda mines have been
operated at much near maximum
capacity than are those of various
other producers, notably the Jack-
ling porphyry properties. Utah
Copper, for example, has produced
about 18,000,000 monthly during
the past year including tbe first
quarter of 1925, although 22,500,-
000 or more doubtless could be
made. When the report of the
contemplated curtailment was
broadcast in Wall Street the
financial papers hailed Anaconda
as again showing its dominant
position as leader of the industry.
'Apparently, however, if Anaconda's lead bad been followed iu
the first quarter of 1925 the March
production for the United States
would have exceeded the 150,766,-
000 lb. that it actually reached.
Humors have it that Phelps
Dodge, Calumet & Arizona, Calumet & Hecla and others may curtail; but no one in authority seems
ready to say that production will
be cut materially.—Engineering
and Mining Journal Press.
Candidate Elected For
Coming Election
At the recent Conservative convention held in Prince Rupert,
George Bushby was nominated as
the standard bearer of the Conservative party to oppose Fred
Stork, the present member, at the
coming Federal election. Mr,
Bushby is a native son of the provinoe.

Brazil Holds Record for
World's Deepest
Mine
Recently it was stated in a
government publication quotation
bureau of labor statistics, that the
deepest mine in the world is not in
Brazil) "as erroneously stated in
many text books, but in tlie copper
seam of Michigan. The American
man-made hole in the ground is 8,-
700 ft. deep, or at least a third of
a mile deeper than the premier
Brazilian shaft, situated in the
state of Minas Geraes."
As much as Michigan would like
to claim this distinction, it cannot
truthfully do so, for the honor still
belongs to Brazil, just as "many
text books" say it' does. The shaft
referred to as 8,700 ft. deep in the
Michigan copper district is one of
Calumet , & Hecla Consolidate
shafts in the conglomerate vein
It is not a vertical opening, however, being inclined at an angle of
approximately 38 deg., which
makes it shallower than the deepest workings of the St. John Del
Key Mining Co., Ltd., in Brazil,
whioh reach 6,726 ft. vertically.
The deepest vertical shaft in the
Michigan copper region is Tamarack No 5 of Calumet & Heola
Consolidated, bottomed at a depth
of 5,309 ft.
Mine Baseballers  Win
From Elks on Monday
The Antlered Herd tasted defeat oh Monday evening, when the
Miners took a hard fought game
by a six.lo five score. The Miners
scored two in the first inning, the
Elks tied the count iu the second,
but tho winners forged ahead
again in the third when they chased three more across the platter.
The Elks evened it up again in the
fourth. The Muckers were not to
be denied, however, Jimmie Ferguson readied first in the sixth when
Sheen threw the ball over the
grand stand,, stole second, went to
third, when nobody was there to
take Cody's throw, and scored on
Teddy Halverson's three bagger to
left field.

Presentation Made To
Rev. J. B. Gibson on
His Departure
The Elks' Hall, on Wednesday,
May 27th. was the scene of a
gathering, in which pleasure and
sorrow were unavoidably mixed.
The oooasion was in the nature of
a farewell gathering to the Rev.
3. B. Gibson, who has been the
incumbent of Christ Church,
Anyox for the past four years,
and who, during that time has
endeared himself to the whole
community, irrespective of oreed or
class, by the splendid community
■spirit lie has displayed, and everyone present felt that in the departure of Mr. Gibson they were
losing a friend who shared their
sorrows and made them his own,
and also did his best to brighten
the life of the community. We
fee] that in losing Mr. Gibson,
Anyox is losing an "asset which it
will be hard to replace.
Mr. Gibson left Anyox on Thursday for Smithers, B. G, where lie
will in Future reside as Pastor of
the Church there. During the
evening the following programme
was rendered:
Selection—Elks' Orchestra.

Violin Solo—Miss Crissie McLeod.
Recitation—Miss Hattie Young.
.   Vocal Solo—Mr. Murdoch.
Quartette—J. Gillies, A. Armstrong, L. Kirby, H. Johnson.
Presentation to Rev. Gibson by
B. Buck.
Recitation—Mr. Yard.
Vocal Solo—Miss Sheila Conway.
Cornet Solo—Paul Stivenard.
Monologue—Mr. Leake.
Vocal Solo-W. P. Eve.
Selection—Elks' Orchestra.
Accompanists—Miss Pearl Jago,
H. D. Southam and Frank Dresser.
Mi1. Manzer acted in his usual
capable manner as chairman, and
Mr. B M. Buck in a very appropriate address prerented Mr.
Gibson with a'pnrse on behalf of
his admirers and well wishers, to
which Mr. Gibson, although rather
taken aback, replied in a very
timely and humourous manner.
Everyone then repaired to the
Dugout, where refreshments were
served and farewell. songs were
sung.
The Ladies' committee in charge
of the arrangements, were Mrs.
Eve, Mrs. Foxley, Mrs. Crane,
Mrs. Wilson, Mrs. Macknight, Mrs.
Cameron, Mrs. Nello, and Mrs.
Jago.
