Miss Edna Owen Guest
Of Honor At Large
What is believed to be the largest
party ever held in Anyox for a
bride-elect, took place in the Mine
Hall on Monday, March 25th. the
guest of honor being Miss Edna
May Owen, whose marriage takes
place 011 Wednesday April 3rd.
Over one hundred ladies were
the invited guests to this event
which took the form of a shower.
The numerous gifts were contained
in decorated boxes and a large
barrel, which latter was topped by
a handsome bride, beautifully attired. The hall was darkened while
the bride-elect was brought in
by Miss Helen Calderoni, the wed
ding march being played meanwhile by Mrs. Atkinson.
A large number of people from
the Beach were present. Miss Owen
who has lived at Anyox since
childhood, is well-known and very
popular. Her father, Mr. R. Owen
lias been an employee of the Granby Company for many years, com-'
ing to Anyox from Grand Forks,
where the Granby Company formerly operated.
Vocal solos were rendered by
Mrs. J. Peel and Mrs. T Pinokney,
and a most enjoyable time was
spent. A great variety of useful
and handsome giftB were reoeived
by the bride-to-be. Later in the
evening the gathering was aug
mented by the gentlemen friends
of the guests and a session of dancing was held. Refreshments were
served during the evening.
The conveners of the shower
were: Mrs. J. T. Evans, Mrs. B.
Davies, Mrs. Patrick, Mrs. Eld, and
Miss Brisbane, who were assisted
by many willing helpers. The decorations were in the hands of Mrs.
Davies, Mrs. H. Black and Mrs. N,
First Aid Classes Hold
Supper and Social
One hundred and fifty persons
were present, at the supper held at
the Gymnasium on Thursday evening, for students of the First Aid
classes held during the past winter
at Anyox. The number of students
last winter was the largest in the
history of the town.
F, S. McNicholas was chairman
of the function. Following the supper, Chas. Graham, Inspeotor of
Mines for this district, in a very
instructive speech, stressed the importance of first aid and mine rescue
work. W. B. Maxwell, general
superintendent for the Granby Co.
also spoke along the same lines, as
did also Fred Graham and Ed.
Ashton. Mr. Maxwell, iu his remarks expressed the hope that
everyone would still be in Anyox
enjoying next year's function.
During the evening, songs, reoi-
tations. instrumental music and
community singing was enjoyed.

Caledonian Society Hold
Successful Dance
Final Juvenile Badminton
Tourney Tonight
Tonight, (Saturday Maroh 30th.)
will see the last of the Junior Bad'
mi 11 ton tournaments for the season
As the Junior Badminton Club has
been most successful this season it
is expected that there will be a full
attendance at this final tournament.
As for previous aimiliar events, the
A. C. L. will provide the refreshments, aud tlie Senior Badminton
Club will look after the details of
the tournament.
One hundred and seventy people
attended the farewell dance given
by the Anyox Caledonian Sooiety
in the Elks' Hall on Friday, Maroh
22nd. The affair proved to be one
of the most successful the society
has held this season.
Lovers of the old time whirlgigs
and steps were out iu full force and
spent a rare evening with the
quadrilles, Circassian circle, military two-step, valeta, French minuet, and what else have you.
Johnny Gillies' orchestra, with
Sven Anderson .on the aooordian,
was irresistable. Joyce Williams
and Honor Warden, in Scotch costume, danced the Highland Fling,
and Bessie Barclay gave the Sword
Dance. Mrs. Sampson, who has a
well trained soprano voice, sang
"The Piper's Song." and "I'll Sing
you a Song if you Kiss me." Mr.
W. 11. Murdoch rendered two solos
in splendid style. A delightful
supper was served and dancing
continued until 2 a.m.
After careful consideration and
viewing all angles of the situation,-
we have decided that we cannot
continue publication of the Herald.
During the past few months, due
to the contemplated closing down
of Anyox, our revenues have gradually shrunk until it has reached a
point where publication is an impossibility except at a loss, and this
we cannot afford rjo do. Advertising has decreased, subscriptions
when they ba.oo.rjnj due, are not renewed. Many of our subscribers
have already left the district and
many more are in arrears.
This however, will not be the last
issue. We will, probably during
the latter part of next month, issue
our farewell number, and if the
unexpected happens and the oopper situation imnroves, we may
I chauge.. our. ,p.r<'^:',t plans arid recommence regular publication, but
at present regular publication does
not appear very likely.
We wish to assure our patrons
of job printing, that we intend to|
carry on this part of our activities
for some time to come, and every
order received by us, will be given
immediate attention. The closing
of our job printing department will
depend entirely upon the amount
of work received.
Watch for the Farewell Number
of the Herald.

Government Aid   For
Anyox Refused
Plans for government aid to
keep the Anyox mine and smelter
operating were rejected by Pre
mier Pattullo in the Legislature a
few days ago.
"We have no intention whatever
of loaning any money to the Granby Company under the conditions
existing," the Premier said, when
asked by C. C. F. members about
the Anyox situation.
Ths mining committee of the
Legislature was advised reoently
that the Granby Company's operations at Anyox would close in
June and some form of Federal
and Provincial Government aid to
keep the mine and smelter open
was suggested. The Premier's
statement does not give any hope
for government assistance.

The Premier Company
Increased Earnings
The rapid strides which the Premier Gold Mining- Co. has made in
the past year toward re-establishing
an attractive earnings position is
brought out forcibly in the annual
report for 1934, which details results at Premier, Relief-Arlington,
Toburn, arid the company's interests
in Africa and Australia. Since the
report was written, the Premier
mine has gone back on operation on
full schedule after reconstruction of
the power plant destroyed by fire
last November.
Salient points in the report are:
Increase in price of gold and silver
has brought within the range of
profitable ore, a considerable tonnage not hitherto considered commercial. Ore reserves were 180,-
800 tons at end of 1934 compared
with 87,134 at end of 1933.
Toburn paid Premier $119,200 in
1934 and had cash on hand at December 31, of $380,211. Ore reserves <rae increased.
First dividend from Tarkwa Gold
Areas paid in January, 1935, brought
Premier about $17,000.    Profits for
1935 are expected to considerably
['exceed those for 1934.
Second Relief mine earned profits
of $24,775 in 1934, before depreciation, depletion and taxes. As operating costs per ton are high on a
production of only 30 tons per day,
capacity is being increased to 65
tons daily. The Arlington property
will be given an intensive study this
season. An extension of time has
been given by owners of the Western Australian property to allow
more work. Premier has a 40 per
cent, interest in the long term lease.
Premier has taken a two-fifths
interest in four claims lying between
Holiinger and Dome, Porcupine
district, Ontario. This is represented by 600,000 shares in Central
Porphyry Contacts Ltd. of which
the authorized capital is 3,000,000
shares of $1 each, of which  1,500,-
000 remain in the treasury.
Net profit for 1934 was $370,530
compared with $248,581 in 1933.
In the report on the Premier mine
at Stewart, Mr. Guess, in his statement to shareholders said:
In previous annual reports, a
fairly complete description was given
of the Company's Premier properties, their location, and of the mining
milling and power plants, and the
aerial tramway equipment leading
from the mine to the wharf at tidewater.

World Still Muddling
The world is still muddling along
as it has done for the past five and
n half years, since the present depression hit us with full force.
The majority of countries are still
trying to solve 20th. century problems by 17th. century legislation
and finding the going hard. And
as time goes on the more hopeless
the situation becomes. Canada is
in the forefront of those who ad.
voca.te the old obsolete methods.
What was good for our grandfathers is good enough for us seems
to be the watchword. But why
shouldn't the . government pass
legislation and change the system
to conform with present clay conditions. Premier Bennett himself
has admitted that the present system has many defects and needs
reforming. Why then hesitate to
change it? The government was
elected to govern Canada for the
benefit of the people as a whole.
This is an easy matter during prosperous times, when everyone is
working and contented, and the
system under which we live is
functioning properly, but it is not
so easy when the system breaks
down and stays broke. It is then
that men of strong character and
intellect are needed in order to
scrap the old worn-out machine
that has ceased to function properly and replace it with an up-to-date
model. How long will the present
state of affairs exist and how much
worse must conditions become before a change is forced upon us, is
a question a good many people are
asking today. One thing is certain
the longer it lasts and the worse it
becomes, the greater and more
turbulent will be the change when
it does occur. It will probably be
ushered in by another uprush from
the bottom, which have occurred
with appalling results at different
times during man's civilized state
The only alternative is a slow
change and this, our leaders seem
loth to start.
The Premier Compamy
Increased Earnings
In 1934
Continued from page 1
With gold at approximately $35
per ounce, less government tax and
silver around 50c. Canadian currency, there was brought into the
category of profitable ore a considerable tonnage of broken material
heretofore unprofitable, and likewise a considerable tonnage of unbroken material. This higher price
per ounce coupled with an intensified program of underground exploration and development above
the 6th. level to find and open up
various spur and stringer veins in
the hanging wall and footwall of
the main ore shoot has resulted in
establishing at the end of 1934 a
combined broken and unbroken ore
reserve in your Premier mine of
180,800 tons.
During the year 1934 there were
mined and milled 154,693 tons with
an average assay content of 0.25
ounces gold and 4.3 ounces silver
per ton, and as the broken and un
broken ore reserves at the end of
1933 were 87,134 tons, this means
that due to the higher price for gold
and silver and due to the continued
skilled efforts of your mining staff
at the Premier there were brought
into the category of new ore
248,359 tons during 1934.
Canadian   Foreign   Trade
Shows Increase
One of the outstanding features
of Canada's international balances
for 1934, is the increase in the value
of Canada's foreign trade in commodities. The gross value of this
trade amounted to $1,145,000,000
in 1934, as compared with $925,-
000,000 in 1933, an increase of
$220,000,000 or nearly 25 per cent.
Commodity exports and imports
increased by practically like amounts
so that no change resulted in the
net balance arising from our international trade in commodities as
between the two years.
Cancer kills as many as 9,578
Canadians in one year; heart disease
has claimed as many as 13,734 Canadian lives in one year; tuberculosis
kills some 7,500 Canadians every
year. More than 1,100 Canadian
mothers have died each year
in child-birth.
There are some 10,000 students
in Canadian universities. But there
are 25,000 patients in our insane
asylums at public expense.
Printing: :
Premier T. D, Pattullo was emphatic in his refusal In granting
any assistance in order that operations be continued at Anyox.
Bridge building seems to be the
pet scheme for work and wages at
present by the government.
But public opinion seems to be
overwhelmingly against any four to
eight million dollar bridges and
history teaches us that public opinion, if strong enough, always wins,
Canadian Mining Up 25
Per Cent In 1934
General improvement in Canada's
mining industry is revealed in the
value of mineral production, which
totalled $277,492,263 in 1934, a
gain of 25 per cent over 1933. According to a preliminary report issued by the Dominion Bureau of
Statistics, gains were general in all
groups; metals, fuels; non-metals
other than fuels, and structural
materials. The most striking improvement is to be found in the
metals group where several new
high records of production were
Gold mining was the outstanding
feature in Canada's mining activities
during 1934. Higher gold prices
resulted in the development of many
new mines and the re-opening of
properties closed down some years
Other bright spots in the mining
picture were the increased outputs
of lead and zinc, which exceeded all
previous records. Copper production was also a record, the previous
high year being 1930. Nickel production was the greatest in Canadian mining history, totalling 128,-
687,340 pounds compared with
110,275,912 pounds in 1929, the
previous record year. Silver production was also higher. The production of metals of the platinum
group was much larger than ever

THE  HERALD,  2.00 A YEAR ALICE    ARM   AND ANYOX   HERALD. Saturday. March 30,  1935
With the fall of the leaf and the
tang of autumn in the air the
fishing rod is laid aside and the
Nimrods look to their rifles and
shotguns, as the hunting season is
ushered in. True to her reputation
as one of the world's greatest playgrounds, Canada offers a wide
fange of sport, furred, feathered
and horned, to all who care to
penetrate its far-flung hinterlands.
From coast to coast, all along the
vast system of the Canadian Paci-
S> Railway, there are countless es
tablished points of entry into the
woods and mountains, readily
accessible to those in search of
game. The Bhores of countless
lakes, rivers, and creeks, abound
with all varieties of duck and goose
and are not infrequently the scene
of the termination of successful
expeditions'after moose, elk and
deer of all kinds. New Brunswick
rivals Ontario and Quebec as moose
territory, while further west, the
towering Rockies offer their tribute
of bear, mountain sheep and
mountain goat. Bear are also plentiful in the Ontario northland and
in certain parts of Quebec. With
a view to preservation, various
changes have been made this year
in the game laws of all Canadian
provinces, but even with the new
restrictions a broad period of
hunting is offered and the invading
army from Canadian centres, as
well as from the United States, is
already starting on its expeditions.

ON the third of February, 1922, the first three-element vacuum tube
made in Canada was manufactured iij the Montreal Plant of the
Northern Electric Company, Limited. This was a repeater tube for
telephone use, and was followed in May by the "Peanut", the radio
receiving tube known from coast to coast, and beyond, as the "Necromantic Bottle of the Age". Today, one hundred and forty standardized
types of radio vacuum tubes are manufactured in Canada, not to
mention those used for telephone communication and other purposes.

Engineer, showing to a fair visitor one of the new 35,000 watt
water cooled transmitting tubes used in Canada's newest and most
powerful Broadcasting Station CKY in Winnipeg. This tube equals
