Gold Output Increased
In B.C. Last Year But
Other Metals Down
Preliminary  Mining  Report
Gives Figures For 1932
A copy of the Preliminary Report
of the Mineral Industry of B. C. for
1932 was received at the Herald
Office this week from Victoria.
The Report shows that while the
production value of all metals declined in common with all industries
that an important advance was
made in gold mining, and the outlook for this branch is very promising. Following are the important
items of the Report:
The gross value of the mineral
production of the Province for 1932
is estimated at $26,675,517, a decline from the output in 1931 of
$8,207,664 or 23 percent.
The decrease in production value
was to be expected owing to lower
metal prices, smaller outputs of
zinc, copper and coal, and the falling oft of building and constructional work. On the other hand, a
large increase was recorded in gold
production and a small increase in
lead output as compared with 1931.
Silver production showed only a
slight decline. In the face of un-
precedentedly severe economic con-
I ditions the industry has been
maintained in a satisfactory manner.
The increased output of gold,
both placer and lode, is only a
slight indication of the activity tak-
I ing place in searching for and developing gold properties.  The total
I gold output of $4,140,850 as compared with $3,310,886 in 1931 is an
increase of 25 per cent, The bulk
of the gold produced in the province
during 1932 was sold on the basis
of payment in American funds.
By agreement with the Dominion
Bureau of Statistics, gold production in fine ounces is valued in Canadian dollars for statistical
purposes, as it is considered standard money, rather than a commodity. During the year, the so-called
premium or advantage to producers
in selling gold on the basis of
American funds approximated 13
per cent. The premium to British
Columbia producers therefore amounted to approximately $538,000,
making the total return to the producers in terms of Canadian funds,
about |4,678,000. This is an increase of 40 per cent, over the value
in 1931 figured in the same way, as
in that year the premium was quite
small.
The estimated silver output of
7,200,000 ounces shows a decline of
about 300,000 ounces as compared
with 1931. The principal producers
were the Sullivan and Premier
mines, The Wallace Mountain
silver camp, Greenwood Mining
Division maintained profitable production even at present silver prices
and development has maintained
the usual ore reserves.
Copper output estimated at 48,-
600,000 pounds showed a marked
decline from the 63,194,299 pounds

Badminton Tournament
Proved Popular
Starting off promptly on time and
with everyone keen to play, the
tournament held by the Badminton
Club on Thursday evening the 19th.
was one of the most successful yet
held. Under an energetic committee the various games were proceeded with smartly and when it is considered that eighteen couples took
part in the tournament, and that
each couple played nine games, it
is obvious that no time was lost.
The competition was divided into
two courts, the winners on one court
being Mrs. McConnachie and Hor-
ton Jack and on the other Mrs. McKay and Sid. Peters. The partners
were well selected and some very
close results were recorded. During the evening a very welcome
supper was served and the prizes
were presented to the winners by
Mrs. Kirby.

and injecting some dazzling speed
and smart work into their play,
the Concentrator completely turned the tables on their rivals the
Vandals, on Friday the 20th. running up a score of 23 to 14. The
Vandals played with speed and
smoothness, but were very closely
checked and their star shooters
either could not find the basket or
were not permitted an opportunity
to shoot. Starring for the winners
were Dwyer, Falconer and McDougall. the two latter worked like
trojans, playing keen basketball,
while Dwyer stuck to the tall skipper of the Miners harassing him
greatly. Tony Calderoni was
closely checked, while Horton Jack
missed one or two nice chances to
score. It was a splendid game
though inclined a little to roughness.

A splendid game was witnessed
between the High School and the
Mechanics, the bookworms having
things well in hand at half time
with a score of 26 to 14. However
from then on, the Mechanics used
high speed lathes and polishers, and
gradually ran up a total of 28.
The School, with 30 points to their
credit, looked to have the game
sewed up, but their opponents secured a basket to tie the score and
in the last minute secured a penalty

Can. Copper Exports To
Britain Shows Increase
The statement of exports of Canadian non-ferrous ores and smelter
products, issued by the Dominion
Bureau of Statistics, indicates heavy
shipments of copper to Great Britain during November. In the classification of ingots, bars, cakes,
slabs and billets of copper, the exports to the United Kingdom were
16,576,000 pounds out of total exports of 20,670,200 pounds during
the month. The United Kingdom
market also took 4,948,900 pounds
of copper in rods, strips, sheets,
plates and tubing, or practically the
entire exports in this classification.
Other large copper shipments were
to Italy, France, Germany and
Belgium.
In addition to large quantities of
aluminium and copper consigned
to the United Kingdom, the British
market absorbed most of the export
of Canadian cobalt during November, nearly two-thirds of the exports
of lead, and more than one-half of
the zinc.
Prospector's Gold Mine
Is His Bank
Spokane Mining Truth.
Clarence Jordan banks his gold
in Flag Mountain, near Liberty,
Wash., and that is where he is going to keep it. Now and then he'll
draw out a few hundred dollars
with pick and shovel for his family
expenses. The rest of his treasure
can wait.
Gold is au old story with Jordan.
His father taught him how to pan
it; taught him in the rich Swauk
Creek area of central Washington,
where the elder Jordan was one of
the seven original discoverers—one
of the leaders in the gold-mad race
of the mauve decade when miners1
took |4,000,000 out of the area before stampeding for the Klondike.
Clarence was 10 then. Ever
since he has been playing with gold
in the Cascade Mountains, first in
the Swauk and later on Flag
Mountain.
He post-hcled almost an entire
side of Flag Mountain, acquired
several claims and tried to buy an
adjoining one on which he found a
rich pocket. But Jack McMillan
knew Clarence too well—suspected
he knew where the gold lay and
refused to sell. Then Clarence's
older brother, 47-year-old Ollie,
came from Spokane with $1,000,
McMillan sold unhesitatingly to
the stranger.
Clarenoe pointed out the spot.
Ollie dug for half an hour. Then
he left with three water buckets
filled with gold—$10,000. He
hasn't come back. A guard watches over that rich pocket, waiting
for Ollie to return—broke.
"That's no way to do," mused
the younger brother as lie worked
lis neighbouring claim. What do
I want to take it all out at once
for? I'd only have to pay a lot of it
out in taxes and have a bunch of
fellers in here trying to sell me
things and a lot of other troubles.
No, sir! She's safe in that mountain until I need it. There she
ptays.''

TIMES HAVE CHANGED
Published in British Weekly
When in 1918, on the invitation
of our foreign office and an American committee, Sir George Adam
Smith went to the United States to
speak on the Moral Aims of the Allies, he had to address in April,
along with Mr. Taft, a meeting in
Cleveland, Ohio, called by the
chamber of commerce, and attended
by over 700 men of business and
the professions, Mr. Taft, who was
not then in office, said in the course
of his address: "I hear that our
government is lending very large
sums of money to Great Britain. As
an American citizen I trust that we
shall never ask back a single cent
of it. Because for three years
Great Britain has been standing between us and the monster," This
was loudly cheered by the whole
meeting.

BRITISH  COLUMBIA
Among the Canadian Provinces, British Columbia is the
leading producer of Silver, Lead and Zinc
In this Province, about 45 per cent, of Canada's Silver,
97 per cent, of the Lead and 93 per cent, of the Zinc are
produced.
British Columbia has produced approximately $1,300,000,-
000 worth of minerals.
About 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing
lands are open for prospecting.
Practically every mineral known to be found on the
Continent occurs to some extent in British Columbia

Bungalow Camping in Rockies
Cpring is here, according to the calendar, though
you may not otherwise have noticed it, and with
the spring the thought of vacation begins to gather
strength. In another month or six weeks the bungalow camps of the Rockies, famous the world over
for their beauty, will have opened again for the
season Outstanding among them are the Lake
O'Hara Bungalow camp (lower left), just behind
Lake Louise; Yoho camp (lower right), under the
roar of the Tokakkaw Falls; and Emerald Lake
chalet (upper), by many considered to be the gem
of the Rockies, although artists and others will often
contend that Lake O'Hara is a close rival. Stays at
reasonable cost may be made in any or all three of
these camps, since they are not very far from one
another and are easily accessible. As a by no means
minor part of the lure of these camps there is the
attraction of frail riding on trained, sure-footed
mountain cayuses over mountain passes through
some of the most magnificent scenery in the world.
Centre inset are the famous Twin Falls near the
Yoho Camp.

Beauty unrivalled, health-giving altitudes, all the
comforts that modern ingenuity can devise and
"something to do" all the time await the army of
travellers irom all over the world, which annually
invades the glorious Canadian Rockies through the
Banff Springs Hotel and the Chateau Lake Louise.
These stately up-to-date hostelries, which open on
May 15 and June 1, respectively, are not only key-
points to the most beautiful mountain territories In
the world, but are, themselves, located in Bettings of a
beauty which has to be seen to be truly appreciated.
On the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
which owns and operates them, they are equipped
not only to be "homes from home" to the travelling
public and holiday-seekers in the generally accepted
sense, but to furnish entertainment for their guests in
many and varied ways.   Auto drives, trail-rides, boating,
fishing, swimming, golf, tennis, hiking and mountaineering,
to say nothing of the famous Indian Days and the Highland
Gathering, are all part of programs which years of experience
have brought to perfection. Experts in all lines are in attendance
to be of service to the hotels' guests and real cowboys, red-coated
"Mounties" and true Stoney Indians lend color to a hundred
vailr.lionB of uniquely picturesque scenes.   There is never a dull moment at
Tinnff or Lake Louise. There is something for every taste and the rounding
off of full (lays by dancing in cool and spacious ball-rooms, to smart orchestra.'', is not the least of the attractions offered.

Gold Output Increased
In B.C. Last Year But
Other Metals Down
Preliminary   Mining   Report
Gives Figures For 1932
Continued from Page 1
produced in 1931. Practically the
entire copper production of the Province is made by the Granby Company's mine at Anyox and the Britannia. Drastic curtailment at the
latter caused most of tlie decrease
in production. The continued operation of these mines is threatened
by the 4-cent duty imposed on copper entering the United States,
where the output has previously
been marketed. Other markets are
now being sought but the future is
obscure.
The lead output for the year is
estimated at 253,000,000 pounds as
compared with 248,783,508 pounds
in 1931. This large tonnage is produced almost entirely by the Sullivan
mine of the Consolidated Company.
It is noteworthy and encouraging
that despite a lower price for lead,
that the Consolidated Company was
able to continue production at a
slightly higher rate than in 1931.
It is understood that sales of the
metal have kept pace with the output.
Zinc production for the year is
estimated at 130,000,000 pounds as
compared with 205,071,247 pounds
in 1931. Almost the entire output
was made by the Sullivan mine and
the heavy decline was due to the
difficulty attendant on marketing
the metal.
The value of Structural Materials
produced is estimated at $1,750,000,
a decline of over 50 per cent as
compared with the valuation for
1931. This heavy decrease reflects
the well known fact that constructional and building activity, which
were well maintained in 1931,
slumped severely in 1932.
The output of Miscellaneous Metals and Minerals is estimated to
have had a value of approximately
$500,000, a decline from the figure
of $818,161 in 1931. Lowered outputs of gypsum, cadmium, and flux
for smelting operations largely account for the drop in the figures.
The prices of copper, lead and
zinc reached new lows during the
year. Silver about held its own
but owing to the advantage of exchange on New York funds, the
average realized price by British
Columbia producers was about three
cents an ounce higher than in 1931.

entertainment, ultra-smart, and
splendidly directed by Roubeii Ma-
moulin. The story concerns a poor
young Parisian tailor who passes
himself off' as a nobleman. He is a
tremendous success socially, and
the baron's daughter (Jeanette
MacDonald) falls in love with him.
The action is beautifully set to
music written by Richard Roger
and Lorenz Hart. See it sure on
Saturday.
