Anyox Mine and Mill
Resumed Operations
This Week
Slowly but surely the big plant of
the Granby Co. is getting back to
normalcy, and viewing the progress
made toward this end since the strikers were expelled, it will be only a
short time before every department
of the ore reduction plant and mine,
will again resound with the clangor
of activity.
A steady stream of men from outside points are reaching Anyox and
being put to work, chiefly at the
mine. They come from various
parts of the province and now that
the stream has commenced it is expected to swell in volume as time
goes on.
The first efforts towards a resumption of operations was the
movement of ore already broken
down at the mine. This ore is now
being moved out and yesterday the
concentrating mill commenced activities. The smelter is expected
to commence treatment of concen
trates in a day or two and when
this.k accomplished the mine staff
will be gradually built up until a full
force of miners are again working,
Anyox will then enjoy her old
time prosperity, everyone working
and drawing a regular wage or salary. Sufficient to live on and a little
left for pleasure.
Anyox Workers Cause
Riot In Vancouver
J. Buntain Heads Poll For
Community League
The election for councillors for
the Anyox Community League took
place on Wednesday. The turnout
of voters was the largest for many
years and great interest was taken
in the election. J. Buntain, "the

with 174 votes. The following
comprise the new council: J. Buntain, J. Shields, F. B. Faulkner,
E. R. Johnson, A. H. Stewart, J,
Donaldson, F. Dresser, R. J. A.
A riot occurred at Vancouver on
Friday night, February 24th. during which several shots were fired
over the heads of rioters by the
police to protect themselves. The
riot occurred in the vicinity, of the
Union Steamship Company's dock
when several hundred Communists
and unemployed endeavored to prevent the men going to work at
Anyox from boarding the steamer
The police were attacked with
bricks, stones and lumps of coal,
but after the shots were fired by a
number of policemen who were
surrounded and in danger, the mob
retreated, breaking a number of
plate glass windows with rocks as
they dispersed.
It was the first riot in recent
years that the Vancouver police
were forced to use firearms. Only
minor injuries were received in the

Anyox Strikers & Police
Battle At Prince
Special to the Herald
Prince Rupert, B. C, March 2—
A clash between several hundred
Anyox striking miners and sympathizers and police occurred here.
yesterday morning, which ended in
the rioters being dispersed by the
police with many sore heads as a
result of several baton charges.
Several policemen received cuts and
bruises from rocks thrown by the
strikers, and one was taken to the
hospital for treatment. Only one
arrest was made, namely, Robert
Thomas Carter, who appeared to
be the leader of the strikers.
The trouble commenced when
several hundred men marched towards the Canadian National Dock
with the purpose of intercepting a
few men who were going to Anyox
to work. The crowd was stopped
by the police, but they broke away
and attempted to cross the railway
track. Swinging their batons the
constables drove them back and
followed them as far as a vacant lot
at the rear of the Post Office, opposite the Central Hotel. Here the
strikers made a stand, there being
a good supply of rocks on the
vacant lot, and as the police advanced to the attack the air was
filled with flying stones, but the
strikers were quickly driven off.
Elks Hold Card Party And
A successful card party and dance
was held by the Elks on Friday
last, a fair number turning out to

winners were: ladies first Mrs.
Stretton, with Mrs. Kydd as low
scorer. Mr. Boudreau topped the
list for the men, while W. Gibb
had the low score.
A most appetizing supper was
served, after which dancing was the
order, with the Merrymakers' Orchestra dispensing excellent music.

forces, is now interested in fishing.

Life Insurance Is
Safest Investment
In a year when business statements are, on the whole, far from
cheering the published experience
of life insurance makes heartening
While other investments have
too often proved disappointing,
every policy held in our life insurance companies is still worth one
hundred cents on the dollar, with
substantial additions in accumulating dividends.
The steady flow of insurance
funds into productive industry is
one of the greatest mainstays of
business today. But few realize
the extent of this financial support
in the case of individuals. Payments to policyholders and their
dependents during the year, for instance, by the Sun Life of Canada,
whose statment appears in another
column, climbed to over $108,000,-
000. A portion of this represents
money that the assured could obtain only on the value of their
policies to meet the special exigencies of a distressing period.
These and other conditions during the past three or four years
have subjected life insurance companies to a most exacting test.
The war and the influenza epidemic
by abnormally increasing mortalities, produced a situation against
which human foresight could
scarcely provide. The financial
catastrophe by which they were so
closely followed created conditions
that only the strongest institutions
could withstand.
Yet, during the three years in
question, the business of the Sun
Life Company increased by nearly
five hundred million dollars and its
assets by forty three million dollars.
Tha number of its policyholders increased during that period, by over
two hundred thousand and now
amounts to nearly a million. This
resiliency under abnormal strain is
both amazing and reassuring to the
man in tlie street.
One explanation of the ability ol
an insurance company to meet all
its obligations under such trying
conditions is that its obligations are
bo scientifically estimated that it is
able to provide for all expenditures
out of ordinary revenue. This renders it unnecessary to dispose of
assets during a period ol' depressed
prices, and makes the fluctuation
of security prices a matter of no
special concern.
The report of the Sun Life refers
to the fact that the total of its assurance* in force—nearly three billion dollars—will be payable during
the present generation. If to this
huge sum be added the amount
payable during the same period by
other insurance companies, the
wholesome effect upon the economic
and social situation in the coming
years can scarcely be over-estimated.

you know the King's English?"

Over 1000 Claims Are
Staked At Barkerville
During January
Gold mining ruled Provincial
news of the week, with 1,118 claims
and leases filed in the Barkerville
recording office for January, and a
new batch of eighty claims and
leases in the Williams Lake office,
to the south, the latter affecting
Keithley Creek and Likely. Revival of the old gold camp at
Leach tow ii', on Vancouver Island;
restakingof old tax-reverted Crown
grant claims east of Harrison Lake;
renewed activity at Zeballos River,
on the West Coast of Vancouver
Island; and many favourable re-|
ports from other mining areas of
the Interior and North were noted
during the last few days.
The Cariboo is not alone in the
freshened activity occurring at gold
camps, and from present indications
a great deal of new employment
will result this year from developments now under way. Gold pro
d uct'ioh of more than $5,000,000 is
looked for this year, and this may
readily he surpassed if half of what

Gold Production At Bralorne
Being Increased
Rralorne, Bridge River gold pro
ducer adjoining Pioneer has been
producing in recent months at the
average rate of over $40,000 monthly. To this must be added the ex
change bonus averaging around 12
per cent, bringing gross revenue of
the company to approximately
$45,000. To maintain production
at a steady rate while ore of lower
grade than formerly is being handled the Bralorne mill has been
stepped up from 100 tons to between 100 and 125 tons daily.
This was accomplished with very
little additional expense.

Provincial Expenditures Will
Be Heavily Curtailed
Victoria, February 18th. 1933—
The capital was quiet this week,
with chief efforts directed towards
the preparation of provincial estimates for 1933-34 and the panel of
new legislation to be introduced at
the final session of the Seventeenth
Legislature, opening on February
23rd. While official statement
cannot be expected in advance of
the budget, there is good ground
to believe that provincial expenditures will be curtailed to about
$22,000,000. compared to nearly
$30,000,000 two years ago, and
$24,688,000 estimated (but not all
expended) iu the closing fiscal year.

Government Loses In Oil
Tax Battle
The British Columbia Government has lost the first round in the
fuel oil tax case, and will appeal
direct to the Privy Council for final
settlement of the argument. The
tax was imposed in June last, and
was estimated to produce $385,000
in revenue in 1932, at the rate of
half a cent a gallon on fuel oil used.
The act being tested is the Amend'
ment Act of 1932, by which it was
hoped to cure earlier defects in existing legislation sponsoring the
tax. Provincial officials still believe the law will stand, and are
prepared to support this contention
before the highest tribunal.

How Canada Gets and Spends
1913 - 1&31
Gov. Exp'i
A study showing the comparison
between the cost of Government in Canada and the [arm
value of all field crops has been
prepared by W. Sanford Evan:-,
and released for the National
Committee on economy in public!
finance by the Canadian Chamber
of Commerce. The study, as illustrated by the chart, Indicates
that in 1913 the total sum expended by governments for ordinary
purposes was equal to BO per cent.
of the farm value of all field crops
in Canada. In 1331 Governments expended a sum equal to
216 per cent, of the value of all
field crops.
As prices were exceptionally
low and yield not high in 1931,
another comparison is added. The
average value of all field crops
for the 5 years, 1927-1931, including; three years of good prices,
was $8(>C 000,000, while the ordinary expenditures of governmental
in 1931 were $920,000,000.
Whereas m 1913 a sum equal to
one-half tlie value of the field!
crops sufficed to moot ordinary
povcrr.mcnt expenditures, a stage
lias now been reached where the
average value of all field crops
fills short hy many millions of
dollars of meetina the ordinary
requirements of governments.
Editorial Comment Supports
Beatty Consolidation Plan
Editorial opinion throughout
Canada has been very largely in
favor of the proposals advanced
by E. W. Beatty, K.C., Chairman
and President, Canadian Pacific
Railway, looking toward the consolidation of the two railway systems under one management, as
the only practical means of relieving the intolerable burden upon the Canadian taxpayers. Mr.
Beatty made his proposal in a recent speech before the Toronto
Canadian Club, and the following
paragraphs from leading editorials on tho subject, clearly indicate
the nation-wide scope of supporting public opinion. A total of 47
daily newspapers commented up
to January 20th, of which 32 were
in favor of consolidation.
"This is far and away the most.
candid, constructive, and striking
contribution to the discussion of
our transportation problem that
has yet been made." — Montreal
"Drastic action appears to be
essential if the tremendous burden is to be lifted from the shoulders of our people."—Halifax Herald.
"It Is essential with our small
population that the railway mileage and service should not outrun
the needs of the country."—Hall-
fax Chronicle.
"Mr. Beatty's call for action is
timely." — Saint John Telegraph-
"There Is much that appeals in
Ihe suggestion of Mr. E. W. Beatty,
K.C."—Hamilton Herald.
"We agree with the President
of the Canadian Pacific Railway
that the country must get down to
bed rock."—Mail & Empire, Toronto.
"Mr. Beatty has offered a solution of the railway problem, definite steps to this end should not
be delayed."—Border Cities Star,
"The most constructive of all
suggestions have emanated from
Mr. Beatty."—Victoria Colonist.
"He urges the drastic remedies
he deems necessary, regardless of
every consideration, except the
salvation of the two great railway
systems and of the State."—Vancouver News.
"Mr. Beatty's carefully considered pronouncement compels serious thought, as to whether the
unexplored perils of a monopoly
are great enough to require that
the Canadian public shall go on
paying millions annually for the
doubtful privilege of having separate systems."—Woodstock Sentinel-Review,
"It would be a muddle worse
confounded If the Duff recommendations were to be adopted by
Parliament." — Sherbrooke Dally
"Mr. Beatty's view Is obviously
in accordance with the general
movement as it Is cominp; throughout the world."—Ottawa Citizen.
"What the country needs is a
cool-headed solution of a tough
problem. We can't afford to go
on as we are doing. The one
fact stands out, that the Duff Commission report was based on politics, while Mr. Beatty's arguments
rest on the plain business requirements of the situation"—
Sault Ste. Marie Star.
"Mr. Beatty has courageously
made clear the issue between half-
baked quasi public ownership, and
full private ownership and man-
asemeut, operating under the control of Parliament."—Moose Jaw
"With no solution reached, Mr.
Beatty's address should be read
and digested. If there is to be
consolidation there must either be
a publicly owned system or a privately owned system. That is
the issue. The Duff Commission
did not settle it." — Lethbridge
"The more one studies the cold
figures in the case and acquires
a better understanding of the disastrous results financially in the
operation of the C. N. R., the more
inevitable becomes the conclusion
that public ownership has proven
disastrous." — Brantford Expositor.
"There appears to be no course
open but a merger of the two
great systems."—Gait Reporter.
"Mr. Beatty has shown great
courage in his proposals." — The
Financial Post.
"This merger seems to be the
best ,the only means of getting
out of the dilemma into which we
are thrust." — La Presse, Montreal.
"As put by the President of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, the
choice before Canada seems to be
whether this country would best
be served by two Insolvent railroads, or by one solvent road."—
Toronto Telegram.
"It is significant that Mr. Beatty
is interested primarily in bringing
about amalgamation, secondly in
the form this amalgamation
should take."—Calgary Albertan.
"When the two systems are
lumped into private or public
ownership, and the budgets balanced, then that unified system
can be put to work for Canada."—
Vancouver Sun.
"E. W. Beatty, President of the
C. P. R., claims the way out df
the mess Is the amalgamation of
our two lines under one management, and the Labor Leader is inclined to agree with him."—Labor
Leader, Toronto.
The newspapers in opposition
to Mr. Beatty's proposals include :
The Vancouver Province, Edmonton Bulletin, Toronto Globe, Toronto Star, Le Devoir, Montreal;
Le Solell, Quebec City; Montreal
Daily Star, Victoria Times, Manl
toba Free Press, Winnipeg Tribune, and the Edmonton Journa'
