Tom   Bradley.   Labor
Organizer Caught
News reached the Herald Office
late last night that Tom Bradley,
labor union organizer, was arrested
on the wharf at Anyox on Thursday night when the Prince Rupert
was in port. He was recognized
by an official of the Granby Co.
He was taken south under escort
yesterday afternoon on the government fishery patrol boat Malaspi-
na. Bradley is said to be only 25
years of age. Canadian born; an
active labor organizer, and an adept
at disguising himself.
Question as to When Operations Will Be
Resumed by the Granby Co. at Anyox
Big Majority of Miners Refused to go Back to Work.   Large  Number  of  Beach
Employees Ready to Start.   Police arrived by Airplanes and Steamships During
Week.   Many Miners and Others Left Town.   Close-down Notices Posted.
Fire At Alice Arm Destroys
Small Residence and All
Fire broke out at the residence of
Mr. W. G. Andrews at 10.30 a.m.
on Thursday morning. It was not
discovered until it had obtained a
firm hold and the whole contents of
the building were consumed.
Mr. Andrews had left his house
I to do some work in the woodshed
and did not notice any sign of fire
until he saw smoke coming through
the roof and windows. He tried to
enter but smoke and flames drove
him back.
The house was situated quite a
distance up the hill west of the town
and many were quickly on the scene
The woodshed was saved, but the
house which was constructed of
poles with walls of split shakes was
a mass of flames. All the owner
possessed after the fire was the
clothes he was wearing.
It is thought that a spark from
the stove pipe ignited the paper on
the wall. The loss of all his
possessions is a hard blow to Mr.
Andrews, as he can ill-afford it.
It has been suggested that a building bee be formed among the men
around town to rebuild the house at
an early date.
Five Vancouver planes brought
twenty-two police officers to Anyox.
| Gordon McKenzie carried six in his
Fairchild cabin plane, Captain C.
W. Dobbin took four in a Boeing
Flying boat and W. R. McClusky
and Pilot Lawson took eight more
in two Air Land Manf'g Co. machines. A Boeing Totem Flying
Boat, piloted by W. S. Holland,
brought four more police.
The strike situation at Anyox still
remains in a state of uncertainty.
Until a late hour last night no definite plans had been made for restarting the wheels of industry,
and the strike has entered on the
second week.
The chief obstacle is the refusal
of the majority of miners to go back
to work under the old scale of wages
and room and board charges. It is
thought that if the miners recommenced work no difficulty would be
experienced on the Beach in finding
sufficient men for the operation of
the smelter, mill, coke plant, and
various other departments. The
meeting at the Beach on Tuesday
night showed that a large number
on the Beach are willing to return to
Throughout the past week no
trouble with the police has developed. On Saturday morning some
picketing was done on the Beach.
On Sunday evening and Monday
morning additional police were pouted into Anyox. They came by aeroplane and steamship, and it is estimated that from 50 to 60 police
were in town during the week.
They were prepared for every emergency but no trouble developed.
Early in the week arrests were
made of those who were suspected
of taking an active part in the police
fight on Friday morning. Others
were ordered to leave town and were
placed on various launches and
steamships in the harbor for trans-
left of their own free will and many
who had no place to stay left on
Thursday night and yesterday.
A personal canvass among the
miners on Wednesday last resulted
in a large majority declaring their
intention of not working. Negotiations with the Granby Co. directors as to starting up the plant are
thus held up for the time being.
While it is clear that the employees
of all departments of the Beach are
anxious to return to work, the opposite is the case at the Mine.
result of the meeting was immediately conveyed to the Granby Co.
Large  Number    at    Beach
Would Resume Work
With only seven dissentent votes,
the employees of the Granby Co. at
a mass meeting held on Tuesday
night at the Recreation Hall, indicated their williiighes-s to return to
work. All departments of the plant
were represented, including the
smelter and the mine. The meeting
was organized by the employees,
its object being to ascertain how
many men were in favor of returning to work.
Mr. D. Cleal conducted the meeting as chairman. He stated that
already a canvass had been made
among the men in the various departments at the Beach, and figures
quoted showed very gratifying results. Three hundred and fifty employees were present at the meeting
and a standing vote showed that
portation to outside points.    Others | only seven of these dissented.    The
Granby Co. Posts Notice Of
A notice posted at Anyox on
Monday last by the Granby Co.,
read: "Orders have been received
to close down the Anyox plant permanently. It, however, sufficient
men signify their willingness to go
back to work, Mr. Bocking will ask
the directors to re-consider the
question and allow the plant to
start up again,"
This put the matter squarely up
to the men, and the answer wa'S
forthcoming at a mass meeting of
the employees held on Tuesday as
reported in another column.
Meanwhile the camp had assumed a warlike aspect. In readiness]
for any emergency, and. in oV§er
that the law may be fully maintained, squads of provincial police
had arrived. The presence of these
stalwarts had a salutary effect on
the strikers, and served to re-assure
the many peaceful and law-abiding
citizens of the town. On their arrival the police immediately took
matters in hand and soon had every
thing under complete control.
Since the beginning of the strike,
and in the face of obvious difficulties, the police have proceeded with
their task in a most commendable
manner. Inspector Sherris, together with Staff-sergeant McNeill and
Sergeant Cunningham are in
About 320 Men Have
Left Anyox This
Late news yesterday to the Herald stated that 125 men left Anyox
on Thursday night for the south on
board the steamship Prince Rupert.
Another 120 left late yesterday
afternoon on the Prince John. The
steamship Prince Rupert made a
special call at Anyox on her way
south from Stewart, and the Prince
John made a special trip from
Prince Rupert yesterday.
A total of approximately 320 men
have left during the week. Nearly
all the single men at the mine are
gone. It is expected that several
families at the mine will also shortly leave.
Among the news items over the
radio on Ttlesday evening was that
the copper mining companies of the
United States had decided to close
down for six months. This action
is no doubt taken so that the surplus
of copper stored during the past 18
months can be disposed of, at least
to some extent.
Lome Falconer arrived ' from
Anyox on Saturday on a visit to his
father T. W. Falconer. He was
accompanied by Jack Walmsley.

the past year or two at Anyox arrived home on Saturday.
Mrs. W. McDonald left on Monday for a visit to Vancouver.
The launch Cuprite arrived from
Anyox Tuesday evening with one
striker on board. He refused to
land and was taken back to Anyox.

Anyox Waterfront Had Busy
Time This Week
For the past week the dockside
and harbor at Anyox has presented
a scene of unusual activity. In
addition to the boats calling regularly such as the Union Steamship
Co., the Canadian National, and
the Coastwise Company, there have
arrived at various times the Coast
guard ship "Malaspino", the "Salvage Princess", the Provincial Police boat and also several aeroplanes. The latter proved a source
of great interest and the flying of
the aviators in charge was much
admired. A looal plane also joined
in the activities.

The strike at Anyox has continued for eleven days at the mine
and eight days at the Beach.
Over one thousand men that are
ordinarily employed are now idle
and at the time of writing there is
no indication as to when operations
will be resumed. The majority of
strikers at the mine are unwilling
to go back to work unless their demands are met by the Granby Co.
and the latter state that they cannot meet these demands and carry
on operations with copper at the
present price. Whether the members of the United Mine Workers
will modify or abandon their demands is a question. They certainly have not done so during the
past eleven days. If they do not
make concessions and it is difficult
for the Granby Co. to replace them
with other men, then the camp
will no doubt be permanently
closed. Neither side seems to
have any inclination to retreat from
the position taken at the commencement of the strike, and therein lies
the danger. The meeting on
Wednesday evening shows that
there is a large number at the
Beach in favor of returning to
work at the old scale, but work at
the Beach can not be resumed until the Mine is in operation. It is
fervently hoped that a solution of
the difficulty will be found satisfactory to all, and that the prejudices
and ill-feeling created during the
past eleven days will quickly pass
away. If the big Anyox plant
was closed down permanently
it would be a serious blow, not
only to the north coast but to the
whole province. No longer could
the north coast pride itself on being
one of the leading mining centres.
It would mean the isolation of Alice
Arm. It would be cut off from
the rest of the province. It's
steamship and mail service would
be curtailed. It would be over
100 miles from the nearest hospital, doctor, bank or government
agent. The summer tourist trade
with Anyox would be gone and
many other privileges that are enjoyed by the close proximity to
Anyox would disappear. Not
only would the north suffer, the
government would lose a lot of tax
money and the province as a whole
would be a big loser through
$2,500,000 a year spent by the
Granby Co. and their employees
being withdrawn from circulation.
C. P.  R.  Earnings   Show
Net earnings from operations of
Canadian Pacific Railway in 1932

Report of Dr. Mandy
On Granby Co. Operations For 1932
In the Preliminary Report of the
Mineral Industry of British Columbia, Dr. J. T. Mandy, resident
mining engineer for this district
reports on the activities of the
Granby Company at Anyox for the
year 1932 as follows:
"Continuous operations have
been carried on at Anyox in the
Hidden Creek and Bonanza mines
and consideration given to employment of a maximum number of
men. At Hidden Creek exploration by diamond drilling was curtailed at the end of the third quar;
ter. Milling of about 5,000 tons a
day has been maintained which is
about the same as last year, involving about the same crew arid working 28 days a month, Some exploration was carried out in the
areas of No. 7 and No. 8 ore bodies.
The most important development
of the year is the cutting of a fine
body of ore on the 700 level on No.
4 ore body. Some new ore has also
come from lateral extensions of old
ore bodies. Silica is being mined
from a glory-hole on the south end
of No. 1 ore body. Ore reserves
have necessarily varied with the
fluctuating price of copper. Ore is
being pulled from the zero level
and mining has been mostly from
uetutKsit tho 150 and 535 levels.
'Tramming of about 275 tons of
ore a day lias been maintained
from the Bo.ianza mine. On the
south -lide of the creek work ou the
Bonanza ore body has shown its
extension to the southwest."
Britannia Co.   Lost   Money

company for mining properties) reports for quarter ended December
31, 1932, net loss of $10,663, after

profit of §46,190, equal to 9c a share
on 496,038 no-par shares of capital
stock in final quarter of 1931.
Statement for year 1932, compiled from quarterly reports, shows
net loss of $76,697 before depletion,
against net profit of $593,215, equal
to §1.19 a share in 1931.

French River, Home of Wiley "Muskie," Will Soon Echo
Cries of Elated Anglers as They Battle Fresh Water Tiger
"■Mow is the time for all good
1^ fishermen to prepare for
that summer trip" is an appropriate slogan for disciples of Isaac
Walton these balmy spring days.
A successful fishing trip depends
largely upon the careful selection
of location, tackle and even associates, for many a party has been
ruined by the last-minute introduction of a "wet blanket" to an
otherwise congenial collection of
One of the most interesting fishing streams in North America is
French River, Ontario, 215 miles
north of Toronto on the Canadian
Pacific Railway. This lordly river
is celebrated as the habitat of the
fighting muscalunge, one of the
gamest fish known; huge Great
Northern pike, pickerel, an abund
ance of small-mouth and large-
mouth black bass and other finny
prizes. To accommodate sportsmen
and their families, a fine bungalow
camp—a collection of individual
cabins centering around a main
clubhouse—has been erected on a
cliff overlooking the river. Here
the fisherman and his family can
"rough it in comfort," far from
the cares and annoyances of a
work-a-day world. ,
That big "muskies" are plentiful at French River is proven by
the fact that one recent summer
a monster muskie weighing 55
pounds was taken in the North
Channel at the mouth of the
Wolseley River. Also, not long
ago a party of Ohio sportsmen
caught, besides their daily limit of
bass, pike and pickerel, no less
than seventeen "muskies" ranging
from 10 to 38% lbs. In 1926 a "muskie" of 35 pounds weight, 50
inches long and 21 inches in girth
was taken in the main channel of
the French, one mile from the
bungalow camp.
The French River Bungalow
Camp will open June 15 and remain open until Sept. 15. Jack
Strathdee, its genial manager, is
an experienced outdoorsman whose
chief delight is coaching the uninitiated in the art of luring the
fish, French River also has a fine
9-hole golf course so that devotees
of the royal and ancient game who
are also fond of fishing need not
entirely forego the former sport
in favor of the latter.
Gives Name to Rockies Pass
T3 ecognition of the years of devoted labor by J.
*^ Murray Gibbon, general publicity agent of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, in popularizing the Canadian Rockies throughout the world, has been given by
naming a pass in the mountains after him. Gibbon
Pass has hitherto been anonymous and lies between
Shadow Lake and the Twin Lakes, below Ball and
Storm mountains in the valley of the Bow, midway
between Banff and Lake Louise. Not far from
travelled routes in the Rockies and located in one of
their most picturesque sections, Gibbon Pass was
actually discovered by Mr. Gibbon when he was planning the route to be taken by Trail Riders last summer and himself hiked over the trail between the two
The name was conferred recently by the Geographic
Board'of Canada in honor of Mr. Gibbon's work as
poet, novelist, promoter of musical and folklore festivals and founder of the Order of Trail Riders of the
Canadian Rockies which numbers members from all
parts bf this continent, Europe and Australia and
which has done inestimable work in bringing the
glories of Canada to the knowledge of the world.

Three Thrilling Basket-
Ball Games Played
On Friday
Playing wonderful basketball and
stepping along as briskly as their
older confreres, the boys of the
High School almost managed to tie
the game played on Friday the 3rd.
against the Concentrator. At half
time they had a slight lead and after
the breather continued to play a fast
and open game. It was not until
the last few minutes that the score
went against them. Dresser played
a brilliant game, notching 13 points
while Shields was always quick and
confident. For the winners McDougall and Steele were the bright
lights, both exhibiting speed and
cleverness. The teams: High
School: Dresser 13, Shields 5, Patrick 2, Dodsworth, Gordon 3, total
23. Concentrator. Falconer 4, McDonald 2, Dodd 4, Steele 7,. McDougall 8, McLeod 2. Total 27.
Spooks took the game from the
Pals with a score of 15-13, This
game was touch and go to the last,
Pals doing everything possible to
win and thus gain at least a fighting chance for the series. Howler, chey have stuck to the series
doggedly in spite of continued reverses, and in this way have shown
an excellent yportin;, spirit. Consistency has been the mainstay of
the Spooks throughout, they have
kept loge'her well and studied each
others play, having a combination
which   it   was   difficult to break.

The Vandals, in their game against the Mechanics, had the crowd on
their feet during the last fifteen
minutes, when they played first one
man short and then two, and finished the game in a most brillant style
with only three men and baskets
appearing probable all the time.
Referee Youngs sent one to the
showers and five minutes afterwards
he despatched another the same
way. However, the three remaining men played like heroes and
made many excellent shots, which
somehow would not register. On
the other hand the Mechanics played a telling game, featured by speed
and cleverness in passing. The
game ended 38-32.

Local Strike Notes
The fishery patrol launch Malasp-
ina took out a number of arrested
men during the early week.
All strike parades were abandoned when heavy police reinforcements
arrived on Sunday and Monday.
A big Junker airplane on her way
to Anyox from Vancouver via Prince
Rupert was forced down through
engine trouble at Kincolith. Naas
River on Sunday evening.
It was located by the tugboat
Salvage Princess and towed to
Anyox. Capt. Armour an old resident of Anyox was chief officer on
the tug, which was sent from Prince
Rupert to locate the plane.
The local plane operated by Jack
McConnachie met with an accident
while flying in the harbor and suffered considerable damage through
striking ice.
The people of Prince Rupert received quite a thrill on Sunday when
five airplanes carrying police from
Vancouver alighted for more gas
and took off for Anyox.
A number of men ordered out of
town on Monday left on the steamship Catala.
Handling The Strike News
Since the strike at Anyox commenced last week the Herald has
exerted every effort to give its readers all available news. This has
been done at the cost of much time
and considerable expense. It is the
duty of a newspaper to give its
readers all available news at all
