| Weekly Meeting of
Anyox Community
ie Council
mi
if      IBM''
The regular weekly meeting of
MieCommunity League Counoil was
held in the Recreation Hall, Wednesday January 17th. Present:
Seoy-Treas. Lowry, Councillors
Noel, Rowley, McTaggart and
Seidelman.
On the reading of the minutes of
the previous meeting, it was moved
by Mr. Rowley and seconded i by
Mr. Seidelman that they be adopted
as read.
The Secretary's report stated
that Mr. Cheshire had accepted the
position as caretaker of the New
Gymnasium, and commenced his
duties as an employee of the
League Tuesday morning, Jsnuary
fl6th., at a salary of $135.00 per
month.   The moving picture -oper-
\ ator, Mr. Parker, not being satisfied
with the decision of the Council in
the matter of operator's licence,
exhibited two slides on Saturday
evening, January 13th. containing
'matter which was uncalled for
under the,-eircumstances, and as a
result of which it had been decided
that he could no longer remain in
the employ of the League. He
was given notice that his services
would be no longer required, and
Mr. McMillan, who held an oper-
S ator's licence had been placed in
charge. The gymnasium would be
ready for general purposes by
Sunday,   Jan.   21st,    The   lines
I for basket-ball, badminton and
tenuis had all been painted, and the
whole floor would be coated with
I oil and dry by Saturday night. A
communication had been reoeived
j'frpm the Mine Club stating that a
committee had been appointed by
that organization to discuss matters in general effeoting both or-
' ganizations. Miss Zeigler, of the
Mine, had applied some time ago
for the pianist at the Mine Picture
show. Mr. Selfe had made afrange-
i' ments with Mr. Haeslar to do this
! work, but as Mr. Haeslar is going
I to move to the Beach at the end of
the present month, it will suit him
if Miss Zeigler is given the position
there. Temporary arrangements
have been made to place Miss
Zeigler at the Mine Hall as pian
ist, pending the endorsement of the
Council.
Under the head of correspond
ence, a letter was read from Frank
Walden, applying for the position
of operator at the Mine Hall.   The
. matter was left to the Seoretary
to get further information.   Harry
■i Henford, Industrial Engineer for
' the Department of Labor, Ottawa,
wrote for information concerning
| the "Granby News." He wanted
to know something of its history
and whether the Granby Co. or
the League published it. Another
letter was received from Mr. Lytle,
sporting editor of the Vancouver

Hockey Games
at Alice Ann
Good skating at the local rink
has been obtainable through, the
week, the weather being just" oold
enough to keep the ice from thawing. On Saturday last the ladies
played' their usual weekly game
and a good game was the result.
On Sunday the Cougers and
Bears, played a very exciting and
fast game. The Bears put up> a
good fight—as they always do
if anyone gets fresh with them—
but the Cougers ; proved their
superority by piling on 8 goals
while the Bears cbuld only place
the puck three times between the
posts.
The Bears, however, on Thursday
mixed it with the Wildcats, and
came out winners with a score of
3—2. The game was fast and
both sides went the limit; and was
the most evenly contested game
yet played this year.
While the game on Thursday
was as good as any game played
on the local rink this season, the
game yesterday was even more
thriU'siiS* and- exciting, when the.
Bears tamed the Cougars, and
stopped their winning streak. "The
game throughout was a ding dong
battle. Both teams were scoring
heavily, and at the finish of the
third period the score stood 6-6.
In an overtime play Of two minutes
the Bears banged the puck into the
net, and the Cougars met defeat
for the first time this season.
Following is the standing of the
teams:

Concentrating Mill
lor Anyox
It has been deoided by the
Granby Co. that the construction
of the new concentrating plant
will be commenced early in the
spring. The erection of a concen
trating mill has been proposed for
some time, in order to take care of
the large bodies of low grade ore at
the mine that cannot be profitably
treated at the smelter. The mill
will cost in the neighbourhood of
$500,000, and is expected to be in
operation early next year. It will
be built on the railway between
the mine and' smelter.

History of the
Dolly Varden
Mine
Giving Discovery of Dolly Var-;
den and   Wolf,   Development
Work, Value of Ore Shipped,
Transportation, Engineers
Reports, Etc.
The taking over qi the Dolly
Varden, and Wolf mines, railroad,
and all equipment, marks' another
stage in the checkered career of
these properties, which were in the
limelight, some three years ago,
when the phenominal rich ores of
the Dolly Varden proved to the
world that the northern coast
district of ' the province possessed
high grade ore, as well as large
bodies of low grade, and it was the
commencement of the mining boom
that is now under way, throughout
the north.
Since 1913, when the Dolly Varden was bonded by R. B. McGinnis
for Chicago interests, the property
has been idle through litigation
nearly half the time, but it now
seems probable that operations will
now be stablized and that once the
properties are in operation they
will continue so. >
The Dolly Varden was located
in 1910, by Ole, Evindson, Ole
Pearson, Chas. Swanson, K. L.
Eik, and E. Carlson. They left
Prince Rupert in the spring of that
year on a prospecting trip. They
visited Stewart, which was then
enjoying its first boom, aud finding most of the ground staked,
directed a course for Alice Arm.
They prospected the Kitsault valley
aud found outcroppings of silver
ore, ou the Dolly Varden Hill.
They staked three claims, and also
staked the Red Point, which is a
copper property. They did assessment work on the Red Point, but
failed to do it on the Dolly Varden
as the property did uot seem to
warrant it, and the property was
vacant until 1912, when they re-
staked it.
R. B. Mcpinnis, who was on the
look-out for mining properties, On
behalf of Chicago interests, examined the Red Point and Dolly
Varden in 1912. He advised the
owners to concentrate work on the
Dolly Varden, although the highest assays obtained from surface
samples gave only $2.50 per ton.
Work under his direction was
commenced at a point a short
distance above the present camp,
and rich ore was struck. He bonded the property in 1913, for $50,000
Five more olaims were staked later
and the property now consists of
"eight claims, covering an area of
212 acres.
Development  work,   consisting
of tunnels and  diamond drilling
was carried on until 1918, and the
work done proved conclusively that

History of the
Dolly Varden
Continued from page 1.
the   Dolly Varden  was   without
doubt  a  mine  that   would   pay
large profits to the owners.
In the meantime, Mr. McGinnis,
who had been examining various
properties in the vicinity, took a
bond on the Wolf property in September, 1915. This property was
owned by Don Cameron, who
1 staked it in June of the same year,
and consisted of four claims, situated about two miles from the
Dolly Varden on the opposite side
of the Kitsault River. A tunnel
89 feet in length was driven on the
property during the winter of
1915-16, and during the years 1916,
and 1917 a large amount of diamond drilling and open cutting
was-done, which proved that the
Wolf is a property that can be developed into a mine.
While development work was
proceeding on the Dolly Varden
and Wolf, it was evident to the
Dolly Varden Mines Company,
that transportation had to be provided, as the properties were
situated 18 and 20 miles respectively from tide water, aud the only
means of communication was a
rough pack trail which extended to
within four miles of the Dolly
Varden.
The work of building a graded
trail was commencnd in the spring
of 1916, by Sol Cameron, of Victoria, who built a trail from the
wharf to the mine. It was the
intention of the Dolly Varden
Company to improve this trail at
a later date and to use tractors as
a means of transportation.
. These plans were, however,
changed, and arrangements were
made the' following year with the
Taylor Engineering Company, of
Vancouver for the construction of
a railway. The Taylor Engineering Co., Ltd. aocepted a contract
on a cost plus ten per cent, .basis.
A written agreement that the
work would not cost more than
$175,000 was given by the Taylor
Co. According to the evidence
of Mr. A. J. T. Taylor, when the
dispute was before the legislature,
this agreement was supplemented
by a verbal agreement whereby
President Hubbard, of the Dolly
Varden Mines Co. agreed to see
that any excess above this figure,
up to an extra $100,000 would be
paid. The Taylor Company spent
$275,000 during 1917 without the
road being nearly completed.
Construction work was carried
on in 1918, on the credit and capital of the Taylor Engineering Co.,
and a dispute arose between the
Taylor Co. and the Dolly Varden
Co., in which the Dolly Varden
Co., alleged that the costs were
excessive. When the Taylor Co.
ceased work on October 22nd, 1918,
they had owing to them an unpaid
balance of $462,628, and the wage
claims against them amounted to
$150,000.
. The dispute was finally settled
by the provincial legislature, who
decided in favor of the Taylor
Engineering Co., and who took
possession of the property in. June,
1919, In taking over the property,
they assumed the obligation of the
mortgage of Mr. George
Wingfield, Reno, Nevada, who
had loaned the Dolly Varden Co.
$150,000 for development work in
1916. This money the Taylor Co.
never paid, and that is why the
property is now in possession of
Mr. Wingfield.
Owing to lack of space we are
unable to complete this article, it
will therefore be continued next
work, and will deal with the operations of-the Taylor Co. and reports
on the properties by various mining
engineers.

Copper
Boston—Copper demand and sales,
here and abroad, are good and growing
better. No weakening in price is seen,
contrary every charge is a fraction
higher. A large tonnage was recently
sold around 15 cents and a further
advance is looked for. > Oopper production has not kept pace with
domestic and export consumption, and
demands has for some time been met
out of surplus stocks, which are
running alarmingly low. Exporters
say they have large orders on books
and a good supply of money coming
for the next few months to take care
of these orders. One of the best posted copper men in the country, at the
head of one of the largest electrolyte
refining plants, stated today, that the
country was going to waken up to the
fact there was not enough copper to
go around, and that there would be a
wild scramble for it, and a sharp
advance in price.

cents for both metals. The copper
and zinc lead properties of British.
Columbia should show great activity
in 1023. Boston' and New York advices tell of great activity in United
States mining areas. This activity
authorities consulted speak hopefully
of the prospects for copper, lead/and
zinc.       '
Steel & Iron
Pittsburg—Steel industry operating
at about 80 per cent of capacity. It is
pointed out that this would amount
to 100 per cent, of capacity in pre-war
times. It is not likely that the present steel capacity is much in excess of
what might be called a natural growth
had not the war crowded this growth
into a short period of time.
Rubber
Akron, Ohio—Smoked sheet rubber
is now quoted at 261-4 cents a pound,
having registered an advance of 2 cents
per pound over last week. This price
is approximately! 100 per cent above
the low of the year, and is the highest
since 1020. Leading companies advanced tires and rubes 12 1-2 per cent,
today.      y
Oil
New York—Production in the
United States during October reached
an average of 1,524,355 barrels daily.
This is the highest record average.
Production for 1022 nearly 600,000,000
barrels.
Montreal—All Canadian newsprint
mills are making much better showings the later part of 1922 than same
period in 1921. Brompton Pulp &
Paper Co. which owns two mills in
New Hampshire, at Groveton and
Claremont, is expected to show about
$1,000,000 net earnings after depreciation. Last year net earnings were
$1,097,000 but out of this had to be
taken 9444,000 for pnlp-wood losses
practically wiping out net earnings.

Daily Province. This was in
answer to a request for information in connection with the
organization, if possible, of a
branch of the British Columbia
Amateur Athletic Union, in Anyox.
Both these letters were left to the
discretion of the Secretary. A
wire from W. Benyon, Port Simpson, was read. It asked for basketball dates with A\iyox next week,
and mentioned guarantees for
expenses. As the basketball season
had not started as yet, it was
thought inadvisable to arrange
games at present, but Mr. Benyon
would be notified towards the end
of the season these games might
be arranged for.
In the Intermediate Basket-ball
League, which was formed during
the present week, and which
originally comprised five teams,
another team was entered by Mr.
Seidelman. This team will be
known as the General Office Team.
The other contestents itf this
League, will be Coke Plant,
Smelter, General Stores, Tuxis,
and High School.
The Ways and Means Committee
will meet the committee appointed
by the Mine Club, on a date to be
arranged. Miss Zeigler was given
the position of pianist at the Mine,
on a motion by Mr. Rowley,
which was seconded by Mr. Noel.
A music rack for the orchestra
was ordered. Mr. Noel thought it
was time the Council did something
in connection with the footlights,
