Anyox Moose Hold
First Anniversary
Banquet
Fine Musical Programme and
Interesting Address Given by
Supreme Dictator
The Anyox Lodge No. 1412,
Loyal Order of Moose, celebrated
their first anniversary, on Saturday, September 27th, with a banquet, whioh was held in the Elks'
' Dugout. A large number of members were present to celebrate the
first anniversary of the institution
of the local Lodge, and a most enjoyable evening was spent.
While the banquet was in progress, and the delicious vivauds
under which the tables groaned,'
were disappearing with great
rapidity, a highly successful' musical programme was carried out.
The programme consisted of selections by the Moose orchestra, vocal
selections and recitations; Moose
choruses were also sang by every-.
High Values From
Montana at Stewart
Local Merchant Interested
In Property
Mr. G. W. Bruggy, of Alice Arm,
received some pleasant news during the week, when assay returns
from the Montana  property,   at
All those fortunate enough to be
present voted the evening an entire
success, and the only regret voiced
j  was that the Anniversary Banquet
could only be held once a year.
During the course of the evening
District Deputy Supreme Dictator
Bro. Sigurd Wallstedt, gave a very
interesting and instructive address,
on the advantages and high ideals
of the Loyal Order of Moose, and
its phenominal growth during the
past few years. His address was
greatly appreciated.
For the splendid success of the
evening, great credit is due to the
Banquet Committee, who consisted
of Bro. D. Cleal, chairman; Bros.
J. Hart. L. Dodds, M. McLeod,
0. J. Hutchings, J. Tiemey, J.
Wilson.
During the evening, a presentation was made to the retiring secretary, Stanley Spragg, who is
leaving Anyox for the winter.
Dictator Ellis, in presenting the
seoretary with a gold watoh on
behalf of the Lodge, thanked him
for the able manner in which he
had carried out his duties since the
inception of the Lodge.
Bro. Spragg responded in a few
words aud thanked the officers and
members for the hearty cooperation
they had given him during the
past year.
Following is the musical programme:
Overture, The Moose Orchestra.
Toast, "The King," proposed by
Dictator J. G. Ellis, P.D.
Selection, The Moose Orohestra.
Song, J. Murdoch.
The Nine o'Clook Ceremony
Toast, "Mooseheart," proposed
by Prelate J. Herdman.
Chorus, "Mooseheart the Happiest."
Seleotion, Moose Orohestra
Reoitation, D. Bartholomew.
Toast, Anydx Lodge No. 1412
Proposed by Vioe-Diotator, J,
Kirkwood.
Seleotion, Moose Orohestra.
Song, J. Varnes.
Stewart, in whioh he is interested
was received.
While in Stewart recently, Mr'
Bruggy obtained some ore samples
from one of the owners, which he
sent out for assaying, the returns
of whioh are as follows: Sample
No. 1, 376.8 ozs. silver and 23 per
cent lead per ton, Sample No. 2,
109 ozs. silver and 15 per cent lead.
The Montana is one of the best
known mining properties in the
Stewart distriot. It is located in
the Marmot river section, near the
Porter-Idaho, and Fraser properties, both of whioh are busily engaged in shipping ore.
It was the first property staked
during the boom days of 1910.
Messrs A. McLoed and G. W.
Bruggy obtained a lease on it in
1914, and shipped considerable ore,
which gave smelter returns of
$296.00 per ton in gold, silver and
lead.
Since then several new ore
ledges have been discovered, the
last one being made on the Peach
claim, and known as the Lead
showing.
The owners, Messrs. A. McLeod
of Stewart, G. W. Bruggy of Alice
Arm and H. C. McGee of Vancouver, arc confident that in the
Montana they have a property
second to none in the Stewart
district, with the exception of the
Premier. It is possible that in
order to more extensively develop
it and place it on a more permanent shipping basis, that they will
form a stock company, and the
public will have an opportunity of
getting in on the ground floor of
one of Stewart's most promising
mining properties.

G- W. Morley aud Al
Clary have been devoting most of
their time this summer in developing the Sunrise property on McGrath Mountain.
Mr. Morley, who was in Alice
Arm during the week states that
the property is looking better than
ever. During the summer, the
trail to the property, which connects: with the Illiance trail has
been repaired from end to end.
A number of surface cuts have
been driven on the most promising
showings,1 and two more veins of
high grade galena pre have been
discovered.
There are seven parallel ore veins
on the property, the smallest of
which is 15 feet and the largest 60
feet wide.
The work of facing up for a
tunnel which will be driven on one
of these veins is now ready and
drifting on the ore will be immediately undertaken,
The ore veins on the Sunrise
oarry high value in lead, zinc, silver
and gold. Samples sent out for
assaying this year have giveii returns as follows: No 1 sample
,00 in silver, lead and gold, No
2 sample $68.40 in silver, lead and
gold, No 3 sample $4.80 in gold
and silver, the latter sample was
composed of iron ore.
The owners have done a lot of
work on the property, aiid are
ready to do a lot more, and are
confident they will have no trouble
indisposing of the property, one
great advantage being its close
proximity to tidewater.
Progress Being Made
on Toric Tunnel
The Homestake Mining Co. since
taking over the Toric property
some few weeks ago, have made
excellent progress with their development programme.
The oamp buildings have been
completed and a compressor plant
is on the ground ready for operation.
The first tnnnel to be driven and
which was started in a rock slide,
encountered solid rook yesterday.
The tnnnel was driven through
the slide for a distance of about
fifty feet. - Now that solid rock has
been encountered, progress will be
more rapid.
Eleven men are employed at the
Toric and work will be carried on
throughout the coming winter.

Mining Engineer Inpects
Alice Arm Property
Mr. W. J. Elmendorf mining engineer, arrived on Monday from
Seattle, to make an examination of
the Sunset property, on Koundy
Creek, for the Keystone Mining
Co. Durjng the boom days of
Stewart, Mr. Elmendorf was general manager of the Portland Canal
Mine, and while here met several
friends of former days.
Mr. Elmendorf returned from
the Sunset yesterday, and was well
pleased with what he saw there.
He was accompanied by Mr.
Atkins, mining surveyor, who has
spent the past week there.
Anyox Elks Hold
Successful Dance
On Friday evening last, the
Elks staged their second dance of
the season. A good crowd attended and tripped the light fantastic
from 9 p,m. until 2 a.m. Supper
was served in the Dugout at 11
o'clock. The musio was excellent
aud was supplied by the Elks'
Orchestra, composed of Messrs. J.
Austin, piano; S. Armstrong, violin; P. Stivenard, cornet; S. Steele

Anyox Mine Club Hold
Concert And Dance
A highly successful concert and
dance was staged by the Mitie
Club, on Monday evening, in the
Mine Hall. Several talented local
artists contributed to the programme, and met with much
applause from the large crowd
assembled for the entertainment.
Immediately after the musical
programme was brought to a close
dancing was indulged in until 2
a.m., and a very pleasant evening
was brought to a close.
With the completion of the
Shore Boad this week the government programme of work for this
summer for bridges, roads and
trails will have been completed, except perhaps a little work that
may be done on tho wing dam.
The first work to be done this
year was the construction of the
big suspension bridge across the
Kitsault river. A piece of work
which was greatly needed. The
wing dam was also considerably
lengthened to protect the west pier
of the bridge and also to protect
the town from a devastating flood.
The Alice Arm Shore Road was
also extended one mile, commencing at the School and terminating
at the logging camps of the Abott-
sford Logging Co. A bridge
across the Illiance river was also
partially constructed, and with the
completion of this bridge next year,
the road will probably be extended
to connect with the Illiance River
trail.
The Dolly Varden railway was
repaired to Camp 8, and it is now
possible for speeders and horse
cars to be operated over the tracks,
which is of great advantage to
small mining companies and prospectors.
, In the upper Kitsault country a
new trail was built from mile 22 to
the Copper Cliff property and the
old trails were repaired.
A bribge was built at mile 14,
near Miner's Creek to replace the
old worn out cable ferry. Abridge
was also built at mile 22, replacing
the bridge destroyed last fall. A
cable ferry was also built across
the Kitsault river at 11 mile. The
Illiance river trail was repaired
during the year as far as 11 mile.
Anyox Ladies Form
Hospital Auxiliary
At a recent meeting held at the
Anyox Hospital by a number of
ladies of the town, it was decided
to form an auxiliary for the purpose of aiding Miss Swanson,
matron of the hospital, in providing
comforts for the patients. The
organization is composed of a
number of active workers, whose
chief aim is to cheer and comfort
those unfortunate enough to be
confined to a sick bed.
The officers eleoted, were: Hon.
President, Mrs. P. Whelan; Hon.
Vice-President, Mrs. D. R. Learoyd
President, Mrs. F. M. Kelley; Vice-
President, Mrs. Cook; Secretary,
Mrs. Cooper.

Immigration
A section of the Federal Government and Provincial Govern
ment, also the Canadian Pacific
Railway and the Canadian National Railways are in favor of
bringing into Canada unlimited
numbers of immigrants. This is
a fine scheme, if we could only
hold them, but history shows that
we can't. It would be much
better to make, plans to provide
employment for those who are
already here. As soon as conditions are favorable for the absorbing of large numbers of immigrants
a stream will flow in just a naturally as water runs down the hill
side. Capital is what Canada
needs to increase her prosperity.
With new mills, mines and factories being opened, the immigration
problem will solve itself.
Happy Anyox
Anyox is one of the few of
those happy little towns, where
work continues the year round,
and the same activity prevails
during the January storms as during the sunny days of July. We
hear of big construction works,
logging camps and other mining
camps closing down, especially
each fall, but year in and year out
the big Hidden Creek mine,
smelter, concentrator, coke plant,
etc., operate without a pause of
any kind. True, the moisture is a
trifle heavy in the fall, and the
snow likewise during the winter.
The smelter smoke is sometimes a
nuisance; but we shall probably
never find an ideal spot in which
to dwell until we enter the pearly
gates.
Sidewalks Needed
Alice Am is a fine town. A
live town. Full of live people, and
a good town to live in. It is surrounded by some of the finest
scenery to be found out- of-doors.
The townsite is excellent. There
is, however, one handicap   that
Mining to Resume
On Dunwell And
Glacier Mines
Portland Canal News
Mining operations will resume
on the Dunwell and Glacier Creek
properties on Sunday, or at the
latest Monday, when the water will
be turned into the new flume
which will be completed Saturday
evening. A complete new section
150 feet long snd 80 feet high, containing 14,000 feet of timber, has
been built across the Glacier Creek
canyon and will insure a far more
satisfactory water supply for power
purposes than has heretofore been
the case.
The entire plant supplying power
has been thoroughly overhauled;
a switch has been laid in Dunwell
No. 4 tunnel and enough one-ton
cars placed on the track to carry
away the muck from the two
heavy Ingersoll Rand drifter drills,
and there will be used two shifts
in the face of the tunnel, .rushing
the work and making up for lost
time.

Mileage
Canada has one mile of railway
to every 220 people, a large mileage
in proportion to population than
any other country, with the total

National Railways—making it the
largest public-owned system in the
world.
works a hardship on its further
beautification and that is the
absence of a townsite with surveyed streets. It is to be hoped
that in the near future, plans will
be matured whereby we shall
have all our streets nicely laid
out, with sidewalks on each side
so that we will not be forced to
hop from one round boulder to
another when promenading our
principal street. It would be a
good plan if we could build that
sidewalk at once, and not wait for
the townsite to be laid out. It
certainly would give visitors a
much better impression ot our
town, and save its inhabitants a
lot of cuss words these dark nights.
If you don't believe in newspaper space and printers' ink as
business getters, then you had
better take lessons in how to succeed from the man that failed.

The Mineral Province of Western Canada
Has produced minerals valued as follows*. Placer Gold, $76,962,203; Lode Gold, $113,352,655; Silver,
$63,532,655; Lead, $58,132,661; Copper, $179,046,508; Zinc, $27.904'756; Coal and Coke. $250,968,113;
Building Stone, Brick, Cement, $39,415,234; Miscellaneous Minerals, $1,408,257; making its mineral
production to the end of 1923 show
An Aggregate Value of $810,722,782
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province is strikingly-exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive,
$94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; forfiveyears. 1901-1905, $96,507,968; forfiveyears. 1906

Production During last ten years, $350,288,892
Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 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
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants. „

Northern Ontario Has
World's Richest Mine
Income from Hollinger For
First Half of Year is Sixty
Million Dollars
The reported strike at the big
Hollinger mine of another rich
seam of ore, eight feet in width
anc| said to assay $800 to* the ton,
is clausing considerable excitement
among mining men who state
that this latest strike unquestionable places the Hollinger in the
front rank as the world's richest
gold mine,
The Hollinger Consolidated
closed the first half of the year
with an income of well over $60,
000,000, bringing the aggregate
income up to $81,000,000, and it is
believed that the total production
for the year will be the greatest
of any mining production anywhere.
An important feature is that this
income has been derived from mining operations largely confined to a
depth of 800 feet, whereas estimated
ore reserves, known to be sufficient
to last for many years, lie chiefly
at and above the 800 foot level.
Development operations have
been carried to nearly 2000 feet in
depth without indicating any
change in the geological structure
and the extent of mineralization.
Smelter To Be Built
7 Miles From Oroville
	
Construction work on a smelter
to be situated on the north bank of
th? Similkameen river about seven
miles west of Oroville will be started within th* next three weeks by
the Washington Smelter Corporation, according to H. H. Underbill, secretary of the company.
Unit electric furnaces will be installed of different capacities of
types suited to the various kinds of
ore in the district. The electric
smelter will be of the latest type
and largely consume its fumes. A
concentrator will also be installed.
Five acres of land has been
aqnired by the company for a smelter site and 41 acres nearby for a
camp site, Mr Underbill opened
an office for the company Monday
in the Covert building, formerly
occupied by the customs office.
The Washington Smelter Corporation is being financed by, Minnesota capitalists. F. Avery Tews,
a banker of Stewartville, Minnesota, who recently visited Oroville,
is president of the company.
Early Morning Blaze
At Stewart
On Wednesday, the 17th at 5 a.
m. the town of Stewart was the
scene of a disastrous fire which destroyed the power house and residence, and also a 50,000 gallon
water tank which was built ou
posts ninety feet high. The total
loss is estimated at $10,000. Mr
Stratford was in oharge of the
plant at the time and the cause of
the fire is unknown' Reconstruction of the plant by the Stewart
Public Utilities has not yet been
definitely decided upon, it depending entirely whether or not the
International Electric Co. oan
supply light and power to the
town. *
Provincial Ore Display
For Sacramento
When mining men of the con-j
tinent assemble at Sacramento forj
the American Mining Congress,!
September 29th to October 4th, it|
is probable that one of the most!
striking features of the gathering!
will be tlie display of British Columbia ores sent there by the B. C.
chamber of mines.
Several JB. 0 mining men,
including, possibly, Hon. William
Sloan, Minister of Mines, and
either Dr. W. L. Uglow or Dr. S.
J. Schofield of the University of
B. C, will be present. Aid. Frank
Woodside, president, aud Henry
Browning, secretary of the chamber,
have definitely arranged to go.
On several occasion in which the
Chamber of Mines has taken
samples of p. C. mines to American cities for mining assemblages
the display has attracted wide
attention. At Spokane recently
highest credit was awarded B. C.
for ore displays. *
New Unit For Kimberly
Concentrator
The Cranbrook Herald says that
the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company of Canada, Ltd.
are adding another unit to the
huge conceutrater at   Kimberley.
The Sullivan mine is at present
working at full blast, an average
of four hundred tons of zinc concentrates are being shipped daily
to Belgium.
Wool Industry Growing
It has been estimated that southern Alberta's sheep and "wool industry this year will bring sheepmen and farmers of south new
wealth to the extent of $1,500,000.

==_! ALICE   ARM  AND  ANYOX  HERALD,   Friday,   Ootober  3,   1924
Copper Clad Wire For
Government Telegraphs
For the past six weeks a Government line crew have been at work
clearing a right of way and stringing wire north of Anyox on the
government telegraph line.
The Granby Co. furnished eight
miles of number 4 Copper Clad
Steel wire which will be strung to
a point one or two miles past the
summit. With the connection of
the new wire, together with certain changes in apparatus and
connections at Anyox, it is hoped
that there will be very little
trouble with the telegraph and
telephone service to the northern
.points during the winter.
Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Benson ar
rived on Monday, from Prince
Rupert. Mr. Benson is a photographer, and will remain here two
weeks.
