Alice   Arm   Receives
Prominence In
The Preliminary Review of Mining Operations for 1930, recently
published by the Department of
Mines, is full of valuable information. In addition to a mass of information regarding general conditions of the mining industry for
the past year, each resident mining
engineer has oompiled a report on
outstanding properties in his district, and development work done
during the past year.
The detailed report of Dr.
J. T. Mandy, resident mining
engineer for the North-Western
Division is very exhaustive and
each district is well covered. Iu
his report of the Naas River sec
tion he has mentioned many mining properties both in the vicinity
of Anyox and Alice Arm, and his
report on the whole is very favorable. It shows that the Alice
Arm district is among the most
'promising' iu the north.
In his report on the Tidewater
Molybdenum, he states:
"This property on the west side
of Alice arm is being- developed by
the Dalhousie Mining Company,
Limited,, which started active operations early in the spring and continued uninterruptedly throughout
i5 the year. Work has been concentrated on the driving of a lower
crosscut tunnel about 135 feet
below the old upper workings and
drifting on the veins encountered.
Some good grade molybdenite ore
over fair average widths and
lengths has been encountered in
this work. There is a known vein
system of about 800 feet long to be
explored, in which are encouraging
showings of clean molybdenite ore
and on which, from the lower tunnel level, an average back of about
200 feet can be developed. Lateral
exploration also promises additional discoveries with a still greater
back from this level. The outlook
for an eventual profitable production of molybdenite from this deposit is encouraging.
With assistance from the Department of Mines, the trail from the
beach to the mine has been improved. It is planned to block
sufficient ore to warrant the construction of a mill. To facilitate
this work it is the intention of the
operators to install a compressor
8 plant. The work is being efficiently and conservatively conducted
under   the  direction    of    Angus,
Will Hold Cabaret Next
An event that will attract much
interest has beeii arranged by the
Canadian Legion and the I.O.D.E.
to take plaoe in the Gymnasium on
February 16th. Further details of
this oabaret which has been given
the name of "The Sunrise Cabaret"
will be published later. The respective committees responsible for
this event are: I.O.D.E., Mrs. C-
O. Fricker. Convener, Mesdames
McRae, Lang and Roy. Canadian
Legion: Doctor Lang, Convenor,
J. A. D. Stewart and Duncan
Campbell. Everybody should book
this date as it will mean a real
good time for all those who attend.
Silent Pictures at Mine
The Community League shows
at the mine on Friday nights have
been well supported, and silent
pictures will be shown regularly
thj-oughout the winter.

In his report on the Toric mine,
Dr, Mandy says: "Active exploration of the Toric was continued
up to the middle of April, when on
account of the depressed and uncertain silver market, operations
were suspended. Very encouraging results were met in the winze
and lateral work from it, which
showed an increased width of .the
ore body, with sections of high
grade ore and a fair general average value. Should the silver market improve it is understood the
Britannia Mining and Smelting
Company, which owns a controlling
interest in this company, will probably resume operations."
Many other properties were also
mentioned in the report.

referee in all the senior A games
to the end of the season. The
Senior "B" and the Girls' teams
will continue as before and the
Buds and Blossoms will also continue their contests. Mr. Norton
Youngs intimated at this meeting
that he will no longer be able to

The Preliminary Review and
Summary of Mining Operations
for the past year, recently issued by
the Department of Mines, is a
bright light shining through the
gloom of dull times. A perusal of
its pages show that despite exceedingly low prices for all metals all of
the large operating companies carried on uninterruptedly, and that
the tonnage of ore mined was
greater than in the preceding
year. This wonderful performance reflects great credit on the
big companies, who have shown
that they can adjust themselves to
meet new conditions, and successfully compete in the world's markets when prices are at their lowest ebb. Although the production
of copper showed a slight decline
silver, lead and zinc all showed
substantial increase. Not one of
our basic industries can show such
a performance for the past year.
It this can be done during one of
the worst trade depressions ever
experienced, what is the mining
industry capable of doing when
normal conditions again rule and
prices are increased? Another
remarkable performance shown in
the Review is that five new mines
were brought to the producing
stage last year. Mining is undoubtedly our most stable industry,
and its remarkable performance
last year, helped to relieve unemployment distress in British Columbia far more than many persons
The statement of Premier Ben-
net last week at Regina, that the
creation of a $5,000,000 loan by
the banks and industrial concerns
to relieve the financial distress of
the prairie farmers, clears the air
in regard to what the government intends to do to relieve the
serious situation the wheat growers
of the prairie find themselves in,
due to the low prices of wheat.
The farmers now know how much
assistance they can depend upon
and make plans accordingly. During the past few months it has be-
Vancouver Wants All
Relief Money Spent
In City
The question of the allocation of
money for unemployment relief
was warmly discussed at a meeting
between the representatives of
Vancouver and the Provincial
Government last week. Mayor
Malkin contended that Vancouver
had not received a fair share from
the Government in comparison
with outside districts. Hon. W.
R. Bruhn, Minister of Public
Works, declared that the Govern
ment by its contributions had
made $880,000 available for relief
work in Vancouver as against
$700,000 to be spread over all the
unorganized districts of the Province. It was pointed out also
that a dollar spent by the Government in a municipality meant four
dollar's worth of work, since the
Dominion contributed another
dollar and the municipality two,
while in the unorganized district a
dollar from the Provincial Government meant only two dollars worth
of work, the only other contributor
being the Dominion which gave
dollar for dollar.
Fifteen thousand men were employed in mines in British Columbia in 1929—5,000 in coal mines,
5,000 in lode mines and the rest in
other branches.
come evident to everyone that
assistance of some kind must be
given the prairie farmers. There
can be no great prosperity in Canada until the farmers are making
a profit on their exportable produce, whether it is wheat, hogs,
cattle or butter. One of the heads
of the wheat Pool stated a short
time ago that the wheat growers
had lost a total of $50,000,000
due to low prices and demoralization of the market. This money
has been lost not only to the
farmers, but to Canada as a whole.
We are that much poorer and
everyone is feeling the effects. The
majority of the western farmers are
in the same category as wage
earners. The only difference is
they are working for the banks and
loan companies, and have a permanent job instead of a temporary

Anything that is going to happen is sure to occur, said some one
some time ago, and admirers of
Will Rogers, will be out in force
today at the Anyox Theatre to
enjoy the entertaining and hilar
ious picture, "So This Is London,"
Rogers second starring picture for
Fox Movietone.
Based on the stage play which
George M. Cohan successfully
produced, and skillfully directed by
John G. Blystone, the picture tells
the story of a real native of Texas,
who is a wealthy cotton mill owner. He has an inborn hatred for
some foreigners, mostly because
they are not Americans.
For the protection of his busi
ness he is compelled to go to England to nogotiate the purchase of a
cotton mill at Brimshot and much
against his will he goes, taking his
wife and son with him.
On shipboard the son develops a
love affair with a pretty English
girl, returning from the states with
a chaperon, a lady of title. The
hoy's parents especially the father,
resent the alliance and decide to
break it up. The chaperon decides
to do something diplomatic and
invites the Texan family to be her
guests at her dinner party after
their arrival.

London   Says   Copper
Market Healthier
The copper situation is looking a
little healthier. After the recent
premature forcing up of the American official price for electrolytic to
12 cents per pound, there was a
'setback in the open markot to 10j
cents sellers. But the "bootleg"
copper is reported to have now
been all absorbed and the big pro
ducers have regained control.
Provided they are not too greedy,
but are content to stabilize the
prioe around 12 cents for a time
there should be scope for <a fresh
• rise when trade resumption really
arrives. A Loudon authority is
convinced that European consumers' stocks of copper (as well as
other metal) are low, and that they
will rush to replenish them when
ever they see a better demand for
fabricated goods—Stock Exchange
Gazette, London, Eng.
The question of the advisability
of allowing shipments of B.C.
apples to the British and European
market to be made under licence
only is likely to arise in the near
future. It is claimed that in the
present season the growers have
lost in prices by shippers flooding
the markets. It is stated further
that last year New Zealand shipped its fruit under a licence system
and got reasonable prices, whereas
Australia shipped without ordar
with rather disastrous results.
