Robbie Burns'
Congregation Of United
Church Hold Annual
Celebrating- the anniversary of
the birth of Robbie Burns, Scotland's national poet, over two hundred people gathered at the Gymnasium on Friday, January 25th.
for the annual Burns' Dinner and
Dance. The affair was one ot the
most successful and enjoyable yet
The ceremonies in connection
with the dinner were carried out in
traditional style, and the dance included all the old-time dances so
dear to the hearts of Scotch folk.
For the sake of those visitors who
were not versed in the old-time
steps and whirls, there were several modern numbers.
Mr. T. J. Kirkwood,  was chairman at the dinner and he welcomed
the   guests   in the course of his
opening remarks.   Grace was said
by Mr. H. R. Patrick and Mr. R. B.
Wallace gave the address to the
haggis.      Mr. T. W.  Cavers proposed the toast to the memory of
the "Immortal Robert Burns," Mr.
Angus McLean gave the toast to
"The  Lassies," which latter was
most ably replied to by Mr. Patrick.
The haggis was carried into the
dining room with due ceremony by
Mr. A. Wardrope, attended by a
group of Scotch lassies in costume
Norman McLeod was the piper at
this ceremony and he also played
for the Grand March to the supper
Music for the dancing was furnished   by    John   Gillies'    Orchestra.
During   the evening,  vocal solos
were rendered by Mrs. J. Salmon
and Miss  Salmon.     Miss  Barclay
- - danced the sword dance in graceful
style.      Scotch dances  were   also
given by a group of lassies in costume.
The committee in charge are to
be congratulated upon their sue
cessful efforts to provide a really
enjoyable     celebration     for    this
national event.
The annual Congregational Meeting of the Anyox United Church
was held in the Church Hall, on
Thursday evening, January 24th.
with Rev. E. Baker as chairman.
Reports were received from the
different organizations of the Beach
and Mine branches in regard to the
work of the past year, which gave
the financial situation of the Church
in very good shape, with bright
hopes for the coming year held by
all in attendance.
A special vote of thanks was extended to the Ladies' Aid, also Rev.
Baker and all others for their splendid help in all the year's undertakings. Stewards elected for the
present year, were: W. Barclay,
chairman; W. Rhead, treasurer;
P. A, Ford, secretary; W. Cavers,
R. Keyes, F. Ubell, T. Wilby, F.
F. Dresser was unanimously
appointed organist, and J. Peel as
choir leader. -The - Sunday- School

attendance and finances.
A vote of thanks was accorded
H. Spencer for his work as auditor,
and for which office he was reappointed for the ensuing year.
At the conclusion of the business
meeting a very pleasant social hour
was spent by all present, at which
tea, sandwiches and cake was

We are in receipt of the preliminary report of the Mineral Industry of British Columbia for 1934
from the Minister of Mines,
Victoria. The report is the work
of Dr. J. F. Walker, Provincial
Mineralogist, and contains his re
view of the industry as a whole, as
well as a summary of the important events in the Mineral Survey
Districts. . Dr. Walker's general
remarks are as follows:
The gross value of the mineral
production of the Province for 1934
is estimated at $42,049,419, an in
crease of $9,446,341, as compared
with the ontput of 1933, or 29 per
oent. This highly satisfactory increase is due in part to increased
prioes for gold and silver and in
part to increased volume output in
these metals, and particularly so in
lead and zinc.
The value of the metallic mineral
production (gold, silver, lead, zinc
and copper) is estimated at $34,418,
463, an increase of $8,848,439. as
compared with 1933. Coal shows
a slight inorease in quantity and
value, and miscellaneous metals
and minerals a large inorease in
value. Structural materials showed a further decline.
Mineral production in the Hrst
half of the year showed an estimated increase of 50.5 per cent, over
the corresponding period in 1933,
but showed a slight decrease as
oompared with the last six months
of 1933.   The estimate issued for
Wedding At Anyox On
A quiet wedding was solemnized
at8 p.m. on Saturday, January 26th.
when Eva Irene, youngest daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Johnston,
West Summerland, became the
bride of Mr. Frank Doumont, eldest
son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Doumont,
of Ladysmith, B. C.
The ceremony took place in the
United Church Manse, the Rev. E.
Baker officiating. Mrs. D. P. Williams was the matron of honor, and
Mr. W. Gourlay acted as best man.
The bride wore a tunic ensemble
of pale rose beige crepe with accessories of brown, while the matron
of honor wore a gown of ashes of
roses crepe with matching access
ories. Both wore corsages of carnations.
After the ceremony a buffet
supper was served at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. A. T. Koenen.
Mr. Doumont, who has made
many friends during his stay at
Anyox, was showered with good
wishes and the young couple received many handsome gifts. They
will reside temporarily at Anyox.
Monday's Hoop Games
Were Replayed
Wm. Stewart Died Monday
At Aiyansh
The death occurred at Aiyansh
on Monday night of Mr. W.
Stewart, aged 73 years. Deceased
was one of the pioneer residents of
the Naas Valley, going there in
1912, and since that time was engaged in farming.
Ten days previous to his death
he lost his house and all contents
by fire. This was the second time
such a loss occurred within three
years- The canse of his deatli was
au attack of influenza, and his loss
by fire no doubt worried him con-
the last six   months  of  1934   is siderably,   thereby  lowering   his
$663,359 over the first six months vitality,
of the year and slightly over the
last six months of 1933.   In other
words, the   value  of the mining
production of the province has remained   very   steady  during the
past eighteen months.
The tonnage of ore mined  was
approximately  4,732,000 aa oompared with 4,030,778 tons in 1933.
The average price at $6.66 per ton
compared  with $5.87 per ton in
1933.   This inorease is equivalent
to the premium on gold aud the
inorease in the prioe of silver.
Gold production showed an inorease of 64,542 ounces over 1933,
establishing au all-time high record
with a value of $6,360,960 (gold at
.$20.67 per fine ounce.)    To this
I figure   an    additional   estimated
"premium" of $4,249,862 must be
added to arrive at the total return
in Canadian funds of $10,610,822.
The average price of gold in Canada for the year is estimated at
$34.48 as compared with $28.60 in
Lode gold production increased
chiefly because of larger tonnages
from the Pioneeri Bralorne, the
old Rossland camp, and a number
of small operations.
Silver production is estimated at
8,907,000 ounces; an increase of
1,900,504 ounoes over 1933, and au
increase in value of $1,547,149.
Copper production for the year
is estimated at 49,400,000 pounds,
valued at $3,566,680 an increase
over 1933 of $390,339 or 12.3 per

All three hoop games last Monday were replayed fixtures from the
first half of the schedule. The
games were well contested and
provided lots of excitement for the
many fans present. In the Senior
B fixture, in which Rovers met the
Vandals, the game ran into overtime and was won by the men from
the hill.
Continuing their winning streak,
Aces defeated the Spooks 18-15 in
a ding dong battle. It was touch

Simpson clinching the games for
the greens, by netting two homers

Some fine basketball was witnessed in the B league game between
Rovers and Vandals, the score
standing 21 all when the whistle
blew and an overtime session found
the Vandals with a score of 25 to
22. Vandals played a sterling
game, with White, Southey and
Whitaker showing nice combination. Only close checking kept the
flashy Rovers from running up a
higher score. Thompson, Cadillac
and Kergin were the shining lights,
while Flye was top scorer with 7pts.

Preliminary Report On
B. C. Mining Shows
Big Gain During
Past Year
Estimated Production Valued
At $42,049,019, An Increase
Of $9,446,341
Continued from page 1
Load production established an
all-time high volume record of
340,700,000 pounds, valued at
§8,313,080, an increase of $1,817,-
340 over 1933, or 28.00 per oent.
Zinc production .also established
an all-time high volume record of
252.7SO,000 pounds, valued at
§7,730.012 an increase of $1,438,-
596, or 22.8 per cent, over 1933.
Coat production increased from
1,264.746 tons to 1,337,000 tons,
valued at §5,682,250 an increase of
8307,079 or 5.7 per cent.
During the year the larger operations brought their production
back close to capacity, and several
operations increased tlieir capacity
and a number of new mills were
During the year 178 mining
companies were formed of which
91 were public and 87 private organizations. Of these, 149 companies were formed for the purpose of developing gold properties
with three or four exceptions,
within     the    province. These
figures compare with 153 companies in 1933 of which 145 were gold
mining companies.
There was a distinct falling off
in company promotions during the
latter part of the year. However,
it is estimated that more worthwhile work will be done during
1935 than in 1934.
Dividends for the year are estimated at $6,753,614, as compared
with $3,075,577 in 1933.
With the close of 1934 it is evident that the mineral industry of
the province is approaching more
stable conditions and that an increase in 1935 comparable with
that of 1934 is not to be expected.
The fact that mineral production
for the past 18 months has been
very steady is sufficient reason for
such a statement. However, to
forecast future production even
for the present year, is, under existing rapidly changing world conditions, a matter of considerable
speculation. Such a forecast is
considered to be of sufficient importance to merit the attempt
which may be best accomplished
by treating the major mineral industries of the province separately.
Copper production in 1935 so far
as it can be foreseen is likely to
show a decline of about 60 per
cent., due to the announcement
that the Granby operation at
Anyox is to be closed down late in
the spring.
Lead production is likely to remain about   the same,  but it is
anticipated that a slight increase
in the price for the metal may be
realized. The present price is low
beyond reason, and while the prices
of 1926 may never again be reached
a reasonable appreciation in value
few years.
While it is anticipated that the
volume of zinc will be maintained,
due to a demand for electrolytic
zinc, and the position whioh the
British Columbia metal has won in
world markets in spite of keen
competition, it is not anticipated
that any appreciable increase in
the price of the metal will be
It is hazardous to venture an estimate of the future value of tht
mineral production of the province
but sound business principles demand along-sighted view of affairs
To arrive at a possible figure under
what, at the moment, may be an
ticipated as reasonably normal
conditions, an estimate is made
based on anticipated volume pro*
duction for 1935 in gold, silver,
lead and zinc, and increased production in coal, copper and struc
tural materials. Estimating the
value of gold at $40 an ounce, silver
at 60 cents per oz., copper at 11
cents, per lb., lead and zinc at 3.5
cents per lb., in this attempt a
figure of $55,000,000 is obtained.

May Build Small Smelter
At Bridge River When
The Financial News
Establishment of a small smelter
in the Bridge River area to treat
ore and concentrates from mills at
the north end of the valley, operating on complex ores, is reported to
be a distinct possibility when production conditions warrant.
A prominent Ontario mining
man, famous as a mine operator,
has been investigating the field for
such a utility and is said to be favorably impressed by the prospects
of profitable operation.
Such properties as Minto. Congress, Olympic and Federal, opening substantial widths of complex
ore not amendable to cyanidation,
will have to ship their concentrates
by road, rail and steamer to Tacoma
smelter unless or until a smelter is
established in the district.
Unlike Pioneer and Bralorne
mines, where the values are almost
exclusively gold, properties in the
north end of the Bridge River field
are developing ore in which silver,
lead, zinc, arsenic and antimony
are frequently present.
Power for a smelter would constitute no obstacle, since the B. C.
Electric Railway Company, with
its Bridge River diversion tunnel
to Seton Lake, has a site capable
of taking care of every possible
local need of the Bridge River
mining district.

OVER $1,352,000,000 WORTH OF MINERALS.
The gross value of mineral production for the six months
ended June 30th. 1934, exclusive of gold premium, is
estimated at $18,667,691.00, an increase of 50.5 per cent,
over the estimated value of the production in the corresponding six-month period of 1933.
GOLD PRODUCTION: Gold production showed a
decided increase; a total return in Canadian funds
to the gold producers of British Columbia during the
first six months for 1934 being approximately
$5,028,124.00, an increase of 81.3 per cent, over

Captain R. G. Latta (left) and Captain R. N. Stuart.   Centra photo   •how* a  portion of tha huge  crowd that
assembled at Wolfe'* Cove, Quebec, Saturday, June 30, to wave farewell to the popular "Jock" Latta.
A famous Atlantic skipper severed his connection with the
sea at the completion of voyage
44 of the Canadian Pacific flagship, Empress of Britain.
Captain Robert Gilmour Latta,
first Commodore of Canada's big
passenger fleet, first commander
of the Empiro's latest luxury
liner, and friend of Princes, Prime
Ministers, and thousands of other
travellers from all parts of the
world, has been retired under the
pension plan of the Canadian Pacific after 30 years in passenger
service between Canada and the
Old Country.
E. W. Beatty K.C., President of
the Canadian Pacific, said in announcing his retirement: "His departure from the sea will bo a
loss that is balanced only by the
gain which will accrue to the
land in which he takes up his
residence. While it is with
regret that his friends in the
Company Bay farewell to Commodore Latta, and that his close
association with us comes to an
end, all, I am sure, join with me
ln felicitating him upon being
still young enough to anticipate
many years of useful service to
his community."
At the age of 62 Commodore
Latta completes 38 years as a
Beaman. He started as an apprentice in the sailing ship "Ar-
dencraig" in 1896, and joined the
Canadian service eight years later
as a Fourth Officer. He was appointed to command in 1923, and
became the first Captain of the
42,500 ton Empress of Britain for
her maiden voyage ln May, 1931,
from which date the big liner has
not known the hand of any other
commander in the course of travelling 320,000 miles.
T. C. Captain Promoted.
Co-incident with the announcement of Captain Latta's retirement was the appointment of Captain R. N. Stuart, V.C., D.S.O.,
U.S.N.C., R. D., R.N.R., as the second Commander of the big whito
liner, and the second Commodore
of the Canadian Pacific fleet.
Captain Stuart also commenced
his association with the sea in a
sailing ship, and his appointment
at the age of 47 as the youngest
Commodore in the Merchant Service culminates 32 years of sea
service which included four and
a half years in the navy during
the war.
His war service is well known,
and as a commander of "Mystery
Ships" and Destroyers he was
awarded the Victoria Cross, Distinguished Service Order and
Bar, and the Navy Cross of the
United States. Of him Mr. Beatty
said, "Captain Stuart's record for
his Country is one of the outstanding war stories of the sea,
and his record with the Company
Is equally brilliant.
"Command of the Empress of
Britain with her high speed and
almost continuous service, calls
tor men of very high calibre, and
I know that in appointing Captain
Stuart to the Empress of Britain,
and naming him the second Commodore of the Canadian Pacific
fleet, we have chosen a worthy
successor to Captain Latta."
The transfer of command took
place at Southampton July 7,
when Captain Stuart took over He

Foundry Defeat Warriors and Spooks
Mine Girls
Wednesday the 23rd. was unlucky for the Warriors, who stacked up against the Foundry in a B
league hoop fixture and were defeated 21-16. Foundry fielded a
strong team and played fast ball,
while the Warriors seemed unable
to get going in anything like their
regular style. T. Cloke, in his first
appearance at the game this season,
played a good game for the Foundry, as also did D. O'Neill and D.
Hamilton. The scores: Warriors,
Ferguson 4, Dan. McDonald 5,
Phillips 4, J. O'Neill,   P. Chenoski
1. Thompson 2. Foundry; Cloke
S, D. O'NeillS, Hamilton 1, Church
2, Deeth 1, Yelland, Parsons 4.
Spooks  made  a  gala night of it
in their Ladies' Senior fixture with
the Mine Girls, the latter apparently
lacking pep and getaway in some
departments. In the second stanza
however, the hill girls came to life
and put some vigor and team work
into the tussle. Spooks played a
nice passing game and were quick
to take advantage of scoring
chances. Eve, Morris arid McDonald showed up well at the net in
spite of close checking. The teams:
Mine Girls, H. Calderoni 2, J. Roberts, P. Arscott 3, Y. Cannon, B.

11 shortly after the beginning of
the second half of the game on
Wednesday the 23rd. they went
down to defeat by 34-24. The Elks
put up a sterling battle, breaking
up the fast Trojan combination time
after time and losing no chances
to score, and it was only in the last
fifteen minutes that the Trojans uncovered their shooting ability.    In
No Mail On Wednesday
From South
Anyox and Alice Arm were
without mail on Wednesday last,
due to the fact that the steamship
Prince George, instead of making
the run to Anyox on Wednesday
as usual, sailed for Vancouver frorri
Prince Rupert, conveying passengers who had come over Canadian
National lines from the interior.
These passengers had been unable
to reach Vancouver by rail owing
to slides and washouts, and were
obliged to proceed to Prince Rupert and then south by boat.
Although climatic conditions in
the south were almost the same in
this district, the results were not
nearly so devastating, in fact no
damage or inconvenience was
caused whatsoever. As in the
south, we had a prolonged period
of cold weather, followed by a fall
of snow, then mild weather and a
little rain. We did not experience
such a heavy rainfall as the south,
where much havoc was wrought.

that time, basket after basket was
made with disheartening monotony,
and in spite of desperate efforts by
the antlered herd, to even up the
score. Currie played sterling ball,
as also did Steele, whose old time
ability came to light in the second
half. All the Trojans took a hand
in the scoring and all battled well
through the whole game. The fans
were treated to a brilliant exhibition
in a game thoroughly under control
at all times. The teams: Elks,
Currie 10, Steele 10, Evans 2,
Hamilton, Cadillac 2. Trojans: B_

Pressing For The Alaska
Yukon Highway
Survey of a proposed route for
an international highway between
the United States and Alaska, was
proposed in a resolution introduced
by Senator McNary, Republican,
Oregon, iu the Senate at Washington a few days ago.
The resolution would empower
the President to negotiate an
agreement for the survey with
Canada. The route suggested
would run through British Columbia and Yukon Territory.
The measure would also appro
priate $2,000,000 to construct the
portion of the hjghway within the
Territory of Alaska and $100,000
for the proposed survey. A similar measure was introduced in the
House of Representatives by Delegate Dimond, Democrat, Alaska.
Under the McNary bill the survey would determine the most
practical route and the cost of. the
project. Previously the cost had
been estimated at approximately
$13,000,000, including $2,000,000
for the Alaska portion, which
would connect with an existing
route at the Yukon-Alaska border.
No money would be authorized
for construction work until an
agreement had been reached with
the Dominion Government.
Mining Employes 2000 Men
In North-Western District
"Activity in all branches of
mining has increased during 1934,"
stated Dr. Joseph T. Mandy, resident mining engineer for the
Northwestern Mineral Survey District, in a review of mining developments in 1934, presented to the
Prince Rupert Chamber of Commerce last week. "The various
phases of the industry in this district are featured by business-like
soundness and the absence of boom
aspects. Employment has increased and about 2,000 men have been
on direct payroll in ahout '40 separate operations, exclusive of numbers of individual prospectors and
smaller outfits scattered throughout the district. Dr. Mandy stated
One Brand - One Quality!
"One thing at a time and that done well." Therein lies the secret of
Capilano's supreme quality and ever-increasing popularity. A
complete industry, with every modern equipment, backed by generations of experience, devoted to the production of ONE BEER.
ONE BRAND, ONE QUALITY. That's why it always pays to ask
for "Capilano."
