Anyox Hallowe'en
Dance On Monday
Great Success
Hall Beautifully Decorated
Last Monday night was the occasion of one of the best dances
ever held in Anyox, viz. the, Hospital Hallowe'en Dance.
Tlie dance was held in the Recreation Hall and was easily the big
success of the season. The deoora-
tions had been carefully planned
and very beautifully arranged.
Moons, witches and cats predominated among the decorations emblematic of the season.
The oommittees were*. Refreshment committee, Mrs. Cooper and
Mr. James Thomson. Decoration
committee: Mrs. F. M. Kelley.
Music committee:. Mrs. W. F. Eve.
Floor committee: Messrs. J. B.
Gibson, R. H. Manzer, A. L. Ployart and T. P. Ryan.
The committees were assisted
by Miss R. Champion, Mesdames
J. Conway, H. Selfe, W. Simpson,
J. Cook, E. J. Swanson, J. B.
Haffner, Coulter, R. Pedvin and B.
The Ladies' Auxiliary are to be
d congratulated upon their splendid
suooc-88.. The dancing started at
nine o'clock to musio from' the
Elks' five-piece orchestra. Refreshments were served at 11.30
and shortly after 12 o'clock dancing was resumed until 2.
From every point of view the
dance was a success and the committees in charge should feel that
their hard work had been justified.    	
Harvest Thansksgiving
Service at Christ Church
The Annual Harvest Thanksgiving Services were held in
Christ Church on Sunday last.
The Church was beautifully
decorated for the occasion with
Evergreens, Flowers, Fruits,
Plants and Vegetables, and the
Services were bright and hearty.
The Preacher was Rev. J. B.
Gibson who based his remarks at
the morning Service on Psalm 104
verse 28 "That Thou givest them,
they gather," for the evening he
selected as his text, St. Luke 8
verse 5. "A sower went out to
sow his seed."
There was also a Children's Service
in the afternoon which was largely
The soloist at the Evening Service was Mr. J. Mitchell. Mr.
Frank   Dresser   presided   at   the
The ladies who so kindly gave
their services to decorate the
Church, were: Mesdames H. B.

Selfe, Jago and Stevens.
Capt. and Mrs. Cameron and

Skating Rink May Be
Ready Next Week
Flooding Commenced Last
Alice Arm Will Again Have
Hockey Team
The cold snap experienced during the week has turned the
thoughts of the Alice Arm skating
enthusiasts towards the skating
rink. Repair work is now being
carried on at the rink. Supporting posts are being placed on the
west side, to'ensure thereof against
collapse from heavy snowfalls.
The dressing room has been repaired and other necessary work has
been done.
The coming season promises to
be a very successful one. Alice
Arm will again have a hockey
team, ready to battle against all
comers. Stewart has promised to
send a hockey team during the
winter, and it is possible that the
ladies of Stewart will send a team
at the same time. It is expected
that Anyox will be able to place a
team on the ice this season. If
such is the case a tournament will
be played, when the Stewart team
visits here.
Owing to a big drop in the temperature last night it was decided
to start flooding the rink. A good
start has been made and if a
little energy is now shown, skating
will be in full swing in a few days,
and another record will be broken
for early skating.
Platinum Ore Ledge On
Rex Traced Long
Mr. Archie McPhail arrived in
town last week-end from the upper
Kitsault country, where he has
spent the past five months working on his mining properties and
prospecting. In speaking of the
Rex property, on which a strike of
platinum ore was made last fall, he
says that the ore ledge has been
traced for a distance of nearly four
claim lengths. It runs in a northwesterly direction from a point
close to the Dolly Varden Railway
towards the Dolly Hill. It has an
average width of 4j to 5 feet.
He has also done considerable
work on the Last Chance property,
consisting chiefly of open cuts
across the ore ledges. Several ore
samples from the workings have
been sent out for assaying. The*
property is now looking good, and
only awaits capital to develop it
more thoroughly.

This Home is still admitting
men for training, drawn from

defective vision. The blindness of
these men was caused by the War,
but has only recently become
serious. Over 2000 blinded men
have been taught that in' spite of
their grevious handicap the world
has still something to offer. It is
only with the aid of kindly sympathisers that our war-blinded
men can be efficiently cared for.
Mine Club Busy In
Athletic and Social
AHairs On Hill
The Mine Club now have their
Club room back again, and plan
to make things interesting in a
social and athletic way this season.
They will move their radio apparatus from the Mine Hall to the Club
room, as the Hall is used for a
Gymnasium and by moving the
radio, the athletics and radio fans
will both be able to amuse themselves at the same time. The
Club is supporting three basketball
teams this season, senior, intermediate aud a girl's team. They
have sent out for new uniforms for
each team, the uniforms to be
made up in the Club colors of
black and orange. Mine supporters claim that their team will be
snappy looking as well as snappy
playing, and it looks as if the Mine
teams are trying hard to win the
Championship of each League.
From all standpoints, basketball
should be much more satisfactory
this year than last year.
Mine Club Have Outlined An Ambitious
Successful Card Party Held
"Everyone needs a playtime" is
the slogan of the Mine Club at
Anyox this season, which opened
with a big concert, which was
quickly followed up with a dance.
The attraction at the Club's headquarters on Thursday October
30th. was the first of a series of
whist and bridge, contests, at
which nine tables were engaged at
the former, and five occupied by
the bridge enthusiasts. Prizes
were awarded in each contest,
whilst the scores of all partaking
in the games, were entered towards
the grand total, to be tabulated at
the end of a series of six evening's
play, when a particularly acceptable
prize is to be awarded for top
scores. Those carrying off high
honors on Thursday, were: Mrs.
Jas. McKay, Mr. F. E. Patton,
(bridge) and Mrs. Thomas Gilmour;
Mr. Thomas Gilmour. (whist)
Consolation gifts fell to Mrs. VV. J.
Coulter, Miss Daisy Cavanagh, and
to Messrs, C. A. Allan and H. Talbot. Following the cards, supper
was served, and the evening wound
off with a dance to the music from
the Chili's own orchestra. The
entertainment resulted in a happy
evening, and an early repetition i-i
looked forward to. Among other
coining events the sport's commit tee
are planning a smoker, and a play
is in preparation for 'presentation
early in the New Year.

The Sports' Banquet of the
Anyox Community League has
now become an annual fixture.
As a means of bringing everyone
together it could not be excelled.
In a small town such as Anyox it
is good for everyone to be given
an opportunity of mixing together,
and spending an evening in each
other's company, and the mixing
arrangements at the Banquet are
ideal. The officials of the Community League are to be congratulated on the splendid success of
last week, and we hope they will
have an opportunity to duplicate
the event a good many times.
Among the organizations in
Anyox that should receive the
whole-hearted support of every
parent in Anyox is the Anyox-
Parent-Teachers' Association. The
organization is carrying on a very
necessary work and should receive
all possible support. The problem
of guiding our coming citizens along
the right path is becoming one of
pressing problems of modern times.
By joining this organization you
have an opportunity of meeting the
teachers of your children and taking part in any discussion that may
come up for their welfare.
While Alice Arm has not experienced any great mining boom
during the past summer, some good
work has been accomplished.
This has been done chiefly by
prospectors, in developing their
own properties. Some fine ore
showings have been developed,
and every new ore body discovered
adds that much more wealth to
the district. It is somewhat disappointing that more mining companies have not entered the field, but
they will come just as sure as
night follows day. If the Dolly

Improvement in Copper
Market Expected In
Near Future
Lead   Is   Becoming Scarce
By E. A. Hagp;en
Copper mines in British Columbia oan now produce 100.000,000
pounds ol copper per annum when
the market justifies it. Britannia
reduced its output on account of
the low price ruling, preferring to
conserve its resources for better
(times. Copper Mountain, at
Princeton, controlled by Granby, is
in a positiqn to start active operations as soon as the price makes it
profitable. British Columbia has
in Granby, Britannia and Copper
Mountain the three largest copper
mines in the British Empire.
The prioe of copper during the
past year has been the lowest experienced  in twenty-seven   years.
An improvement is now evident,
and it is probable that, with the
European settlement, the metal
will see a steady gain. France
and Germany have always been
the world's largest importers of
copper.     Their   re-entry   on   the

active purchasing market will
give the metal the stimulus that is
required to secure a payable price,
and prosperity for this branch of
the mining industry. Notwithstanding the unfavorable market,
the copper production for the year
is a record, the largest output
hitherto reoorded being in 1916,
when it reached 65,379,364 pounds.
Lead and Zinc
The price for lead ranges around
8 cents, whereas the average for
thirty-six years was 4. 69. Lead
is becoming one of the rarer industrial metals. The demand is enormous. Known sources of supply
are becoming rapidly depleted, and
prices are expected to go to the
copper scale. The secret of the
demand is for use in storage batteries for automobiles. The year's
production is the record by over 50
per cent., and that production can
be maintained. The Sullivan
mine is the largest silver-lead-zinc
mine in the world today, and accounts for nearly the whole output.

TO Canadians goes the honor of
being the first to set foot on
the top of Mount Geikie, 10,-
854 feet in altitude and the highest peak in the Ramparts Range
of Jasper National Park, along the
main line of the Canadian National
Railways. The party, composed of
Cyril Wates, of Edmonton, Malcolm D. Geddes, of Calgary, and
Val. E. Fynn, of St. Louis, made
their first ascent of Barbican Peak
on July 12, and finding the passage
too difficult there decided to return
and attempt the southeast side,
which route had been unsuccessfully attempted in 1922 by Mr.
Wates and Dr. Bulyea, of Edmonton. In that year Yates and Bulyea got within 800 feet of the summit when they were compelled to
turn back.
Two days later Wates, Geddes
and Fynn left camp at 2.30 in the
morning and climbed a steep snow
gully and up rock chimneys and
cracks, one of which led the climbers into the heart of the mountain,
finally emerging like a tunnel on
the north face with a drop of over
3,000 feet to the Tonquin Valley
below. After reaching the altitude where they had been in 1922
the party traversed a narrow ledge
encircling the south side of the
mountain an.1 reached the* top at
four o'clock in the afternoon. In
doing so they faced a difficult and
dangerous rock climb, having to
overcome rotten rock and falling
stones at many points.
The party descended by moonlight, reaching their camp at 4.30
on the morning of July 15, exhausted but happy over their success.
Other parties are attempting to
climb Mount Geikie this summer,
but the honor of first reaching the
summit must go to Wates, who has
just successfully completed his
third attempt. Another party,
headed by Dr. Thorrington, noted
American climber, was attempting
the ascent with guide Conrad Kain,
when they saw the Wates party at
the top and turned back.
The illustrations show the serried south side of Mount Geikie;

to right, Messrs. Geddes, Fynn and
Wates; and their awakening the
morning after the ascent

Ore Sample from Rich
Engineer Mine Runs
$21,000 Per Ton
Development of the Engineer
mine in the Atlin district from
which are coming reports of rich
strikes, were outlined to mining
men of ■ the oity at the Hotel
Grosvenor, Tuesday, by Andrew
Sostad, superintendent of the
mine, says the Vancouver Sun.
The luncheon was under the joint
auspioes of the Mining Bureau of
the Vancouver Board of Trade the
Canadian Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy and the B. C. Chamber
of MineB.
A concentrating mill has been
built on the property, stated Sostad, and a power house is being
constructed which will permit the
mine to work throughout tlie
winter. Assays running as high
as $90,000 have been obtained
from some Engineer mine samples,
he said, and referred to an instance
in which a Spokane assayer found
a sample to run $21,000 per ton.
The "hub theory" in regard to
ore occurance in the Engineer
mine was discussed. H. G. Nichols
asked Mr. Sostad if it were true
that veins radiated from a hub of
ore as had been stated. Mr. Sostad said that work had proved
that veins were radiated from a
single hub and asked Professor J.
M. Turnbull of the University of
Coal  Production  Low
For This Year
Vancouver Island mines show
an increase of production of coal,
but owing to the long strike in the
Crows Nest Pass the production
for the provinoe is the lowest in
seven years. Coke production is
entirely from .the Crows Nest Pass,
and is probably the lowest on
The Granby Company accounts
for five-eights of the entire production this year, its coke supply being derived to the extent of 90 per
cent, from ooal from its Cassidy
mine, whereas 10 per cent, of
Alberta coal is used to mix with
Cassidy to ensure a stronger
product. The annual statistics of
the mines department at Victoria
never give credit for the coke made
at Anyox, though it is, to the
extent of 90 per cent, as much a
British Columbia product as Crows
Nest coke.
