Large Number Attend
Instructive Mining
The lectures conducted at Alice
Arm during the week by Dr. W
V. Smitheringale on behalf of the
Provincial Department of Mines
were well attended by prospectors
and others interested in mining.
Meetings wore held during every
afternoon and evening at T. W.
Falooner's hall, and the spjaker
imparted a mass of useful information to his eager listeners. Audiences of over thirty were quite
frequent during the evening lectures.
. In addition to the regular lectures,
Dr. Smitheringale at the conclusion
of eaoh one invited anyone present
to ask any question on which he
needed enlightment. Many ques
tions were asked and much valuable information was obtained not
-only by the questioners, but the
whole audience.
In explaining his points and also
in answering questions the speak
er, in using a technicality, explained it fully. He also drew many
diagrams to further illustrate his
points. Samples of different ores
were also shown and explained to
the audience, especially at the
afternoon meetings, when, as the
speaker explained, the daylight
was much more preferable than
the evening artificial light.
The first meeting was held on
Monday evening. 0. Evindson.
President of Alice Arm branch
B. C. Chamber of Mines occupied
the chair, and he -explained the
reason of Dr. Smith?riugale's visit.
Dr. Smitheringale commenced
his lecture hy taking his audience
baok to the beginning of the earth
when it was a molten mass. He
explained that the earth's outer
crust was relatively thin, being
only about 45 miles thick. Two
more zones were formed inside the
outer orust. The inner core was
molten and was composed principally of iron and nickel, as these
metals being heaviest naturally
gravitated to the centre.
Of the outer crust, Dr. Smitheringale stated that only 1.4 per
cent, is composed of ore bearing
rook. Igneous rooks were the first
formed and sedimentary rook form
ed on their surfaoe at later periods.
The speaker then traced the origin
of sedimentary rooks and showed
how these were classified by the
fossils found in various stratas.
This leoture he explained was a
prelude to those to follow.
Tuesday's leoture dealt chiefly
with the erosion of the world's
crust by the various elements. One
of the chief processes in nature
Dr. Smitheringale said, is that of
erosion and this is also of import
anoe, direotly or indirectly, when
the subject of ore deposits is con-

The Mine Club Farewell
Dance Brilliant
The Mine Club, which has been
iu existenoe for a number of years
passed out in a blaze .of glory on
Friday, February 6th, when a
large crowd assembled at the Mine
Hall, to take part in the farewell
celebrations arranged by the members of the now defunct Mine Club.
The Hall was gaily decorated and
the floor was perfeot for the dancing of the largest assembly of
partners seen at a dance at the
Mine. Nearly fifty dancers made
the trip from the Beach to join in
the gay festivities. Harry Ward's
Orohestra playing efficiently and
the Rosemary String Orchestra
obliged with some well played
items while the regular jazz band
sampled the swell supper. The
Rosemary Orchestra delighted the
crowd with two numbers "Little
White Lies" and "Sing Something
Simple." .
Buffet Supper was served under
the able direction of Ed. Blundell.
While George Dyer and assistants
dispensed other refreshments to the
happy throng.
Tw Committee-in oharge consisted of E. Blundell, G. Dyer, Ray

Concert At Mine
A large and appreciative audience greeted the efforts of the
Anyox Amateur Orchestra last Sunday evening, when a concert was
given at the Mine Hall. This was
perhaps one of the best programmes
ever presented by the orchestra,
and reflected great credit on Mr.
Stuart Steele, the director, for his
untiring energy in the cause of orchestral music for the people of
The programme was fully varied,
consisting of marches, light concert
numbers, massive overtures, such
as "Morning, Noon and Night in
Vienna," favorite national airs, etc.
Each number was given with good
expression and careful attention to
detail, and the evening's performance marked a decided advance in
the individual as well as collective
ability of the performers.
In the selection, "Gems of the
Ould Sod," there are some very
pleasing passages for the trombone
and cornet soloists, who acquitted
themselves well. "Southern Miniatures" offered nice variety, especially a "Recruits' Patrol," and an
old time "Colonel's Party," also a
pleasing love theme "The Love of
Caroline." "Light Cavalry was
well received, and the audience was
delighted with the descriptive
piece VUncle Remus tells a Story,"
the same being apropos of scared
niggers on a sugar plantation. Mr.
Buntain, an old resident of Anyox,
who has just returned to camp,
jumped into popularity with his
banjo solos, and Walter Stenton, a
member of the orchestra, sang with'
fine feeling and expression, "The
Bell at Sea," receiving a well earned
encore, to which he responded with
"The Sunshine of your Smile."
We predict that the next concert
will be eagerly awaited and will be
well worth attending.

An amateur bank robber" made
an unsuccessful attempt to appropriate the wealth of the Anyox

efforts aroused the staff and he fled
from the scene. Later iu the day

arrested by Constable S. Service in
connection with the affair. Ac

The robber evidently believed in
direct methods as the quickest way
to acquire a fortune, for he smashed

unwelcome guest.
Opening Session Mock
Parliament Draws
Big Crowd
The Government and Opposition
benches were almost filled at the
opening of the Mock Parliament
which took place in the Recreation
Hall, Thursday, February 5th. and
the public gallery was crowded
with people of both sexes and all
ages. There were, however, sev
eral Ministers absent from the
Government side of the house.
The Speaker, Mr. R. E. Collis,
entered the house with all due
seriousness preceded by the acting
Sergeant-at-Arms, Mr. Joseph An
deraon. Passing the guard of honor of local Boy Soouts the Governor-General occupied the speaker's
chair aud delivered an eloquent
speech from the throne and declared the Parliament officially open.
The speech included a review of
the past year and its effect on
Canada, and the strong position of
Canadian banking institutions.
The measures to be brought in by
the Government were outlined,
these covering relief for unemployment by adjustment nf working
hours, creation of new industries
aud stabilization of present industries. Agriculture was dealt with
and many factors in the marketing
of wheat will be debated during
the coming session. Hydro-power
development, mining, prospecting
and tariffs are also down for discussion.
To give all the details of what
will be brought before the house
would be 'giving the show" away,
so those interested in the Parlia
ment should go along and hear for
themselves at the next session.
Members for the fictitious eon-
stituences of Mine, Strawboss,
Hill Street, Smelter Hill, Round
House and Coke Plant took the
floor on several occasions during
the debate ou the speech from the
throne, and there were several interesting and amusing passages
throughout the evening. Some of
the speakers were oalled to order
ou several occasions, but there is
no doubt as the meeting progress
the members will improve with
knowledge of parliamentary procedure, and the debates will then
be more interesting.
The speech was duly passed,
whereupon the house adjourned till
Thursday, February 19 at 7.30 p.m.
Undoubtedly the Mock Parliament will be followed with interest
and everybody is invited to attend

A lot of words have been spill
ed in the past in regard to giving
assistance to prospectors, to enabl
them to successfully conduct their
search for new mineral deposits
and to carry out their limited
amount of development work to
the best advantage. It has, however, remained for the Hon. W
A. McKenzie, Minister of Mines
to impart first hand information to
the prospector, without any expense whatsoever to the latter
Commencing last year, the Department of Mines engaged the services of Dr. W. V. Smitheringale
and instructed him to visit severa
mining centres throughout the
province; address meetings of
prospectors and others, and impart to them all the necessary
information that would assist them
in their work. In view of the success attained, it was decided to
enlarge the scope this year and
include some of the smaller mining
camps. Commencing on Monday,
Dr. Smitheringale delivered a series
of lectures at Alice Arm. These
lectures were extremely well
attended and the prospectors of
the district and those interested in
mining have gained knowledge of
incalculable value. Questions that
have puzzled prospectors for years
have been carefully explained and
those engaged in the search for
metals have gained more knowledge during the past week than
could otherwise have been gained
in years. It is hoped that the experiment of visiting small mining
camps, inaugurated this year, will
prove successful and that the Department of Mines will continue
the good work of sending us a
lecturer each winter.

Ottawa, January 7; (Special to
the Herald). Thursday, March 5
has been tentatively lixed by the
Government for the opening of
what is expected to be one of the
most important sessions in the
history of Parliament. There is a
possibility that delay of a week
may be occasioned by inability to
get the legislative program in
shape, but this is not considered
The program is now well determined but in many instances the
details of its application remain to
be worked out. The most laborious
task is preparation of customs
schedules in conformity with the
Prime Minister's promise of complete tariff revision. Exhaustive
study of every branch of every
industry is a necessary forerunner
of action for the pledge is that
there must be no exploitation of the
consumer under the guise of essential protection.
In applying safeguards under
this pledge the Government has at
work a staff of statisticians at
Ottawa, with representatives
throughout the country, checking
and rechecking wholesale and retail prices before and since the
tariff revision of last session.
Thus far only two intances have
been disclosed in which industries
appeared to be taking advantage of
the tariff to boost prices and in
these two the protection was withdrawn. *
There is a concerted effort on
behalf of manufacturers to secure
new increases on perhaps half of
the 1,200 items of the tariff.
Everyone of these has to be subjected to a careful study. At the
same time it is recognized that unorganized producers of goods in
other schedules really are as much
if not more in need of assistance
than are the organized forces. It
is the duty of the Government to
watch their interests if there is be a
balanced readjustment of tariffs.
Staffs are also working in preparation for the adjourned Imperial
Conference which will meet in
Ottawa, probably next fall. Incidentally, Premier Scullin's announcement on his return to Australia that
closer Imperial economic unity is
assuredly coming finds enthusiastic
endorsatipn among Mr. Bennett's
colleagues. The latter insist that
the McDonald   Government's sug
gested quota purchasing for wheat
was not rejected, that it could not
be reduced to a workable formula in
time for the London Conference,
but is likely to be presented  in  de
tail at Ottawa.

"Manslaughter" Is An
Appealing Play.
Since its first appearance in 1922,
Alice Duer Miller's best-seller novel
"Manslaughter," has become an
American classic. Now it has been
made into a thrilling, all-talking
melodrama, with Claudette Colbert
and Fredric March in the leading
roles. "Manslaughter" will feature
the Anyox Theatre program, Tuesday, February 17.
Modern, up-to-date, "Manslaughter" is an introduction to the
careless, carefree life of the wealthy;
their gay parties, their nerve-tingling sports, their light, laughing
love affairs. But it is also a grim
melodrama that shows how a
beautiful daughter of wealth he-
comes a conscious woman by
means of a great tragedy and a
powerful love.
Miss Colbert, as the petted
society beauty, falls in love with
Fredric March, young, handsome,
ambitious district attorney, and
attempts to twist him around her
finger just as she has done dozens
of other suitors. March is of
different stamp, however, and remonstrates with her against her
thoughtless, selfish life. Arrested
for speeding she bribes a traffic
policeman. March tries to tell her
that she is contributing to the ruin
of the man by such action. She
laughs at him.

sidered. The majority of ore deposits are formed within the crust
of the earth and at varying depths
from the surface. Such deposits
hecome exposed and are made
available to us through the agen-
ceies of erosion, which cut away
the overlying rocks and thus expose the mineral deposits to us.
Processes involved in erosion are
both chemical and physical. The
physical agencies are frost, change
in temperatures, rain and wind.
Chemical agencies are those of
solution, oxidation, hydration car-
bonation, and the chemical and
physical action of plants and animals.
Erosion results in great masses
of material being moved from one
part of the earth to another, thus
causing unbalanced stresses, which
finally result in readjustments, re
suiting in the folding and faulting
of the sedimentary rocks, aud the
intrusion of magmas, which usually
carry with them various amounts
of ore minerals, which on escaping
from the cooling batholith form
mineral deposits of various kinds.
Dr. Smitheringale took for his
subject on Wednesday, the various
kinds of rocks composing the
earth's surface. These rooks, he
said are of various types. They
are divided into three main groups,
igneous, sedimentary and metamor-
phic. Igneous rocks are formed
by the crystalling of a molten mass
of rock material texture, thus having a crystallizing texture, and is
held together by the interlocking
of the crystal grains.
There are two groups of igneous
rocks,  the speaker  said, namely,
the coarse grained rocks formed at
considerable depth below  the snr
face, and fine grained igneous rocks
usually formed as lava Hows on the
surface.    The  sedimentary  rocks
have been laid down as beds  in
bodies of relatively  quiet   water.
There are four main types of sedi
i'nentary rocks, nameiy, conglomer
ates, sandstones, shales and limestones.   These rocks are not crys
talline in texture, but are made up
of fragments of other rocks or mineral grains, and are held together
usually by a cement.
At the meeting on Thursday,
Dr. Smitheringale explained how
dykes, sills and lacoliths were
formed. A distinction between a
stock and lacolith was also made.
Lava Hows were also dealt with.
Structures found iu sedimentary
rocks were also explained, such as
anticline, syncline, monocline, un
conformity, etc.
The speaker gave details of various faulting systems, such as
throws, heaves, slips and offsets,
and drew diagrams to more fully
explain the various faulting systems. An explanation was also
made regarding various silver ore
in conjunction with other metals.
Various minerals and tlieir occurrences were taken up at both
the afternoon and evening meetings.
Arm during the present week will
give a similar series at Anyox
during the coming week, commenc
ing on Monday evening at the
Recreation Hall. Lectures will be
held during every afternoon and
In our last issue we gave a
report of why these lectures were
being conducted, and readers of the
Herald are therefore acquainted
with the facts.
