Two Basketball Games
On Monday
There were only two games on
Monday. The first being a Senior
B league game between Smelter
and Orphans. The latter winning
the game, which was lacking en-
thusiasm of the players. The
Smelter turned up several men
short and managed to scrape to
gether five players. Naturally
they were at a disadvantage playing against the Orphans who had
their regular team out.
Scores were: Orphans 16, Smel
ter 8.   The game was uninteresting.
A Senior "A" game was sche
duled for 9.15 but the Micos did
not put in an appearance. A
friendly game was played between
the Sheiks and a pick-up team.
The Sheiks combined well and
piled a big score of 34, while the
other team could only muster 9
points, mainly due to lack of coin
bination, and too much individualistic display.
Three Good Basketball
Games Played On
Several interesting games of
basketball were played at the Gym
on Thursday, January 8th.
The Smelter and Orphan teams
clashed in the first game of the
second half of the series. It was
quite an interesting contest in
which the Orphans were somewhat unlucky to lose the points,
having had tbe better of the exchanges throughout. Scores: Orphans 10—Horner-6, Field 2, W.
Pinckney 2. Smelter 11—Ion-6,
Ellison-2, Donaldson-2, Taylor-1.
The game was played cleanly and
referee Gillies seldom had to blow
his whistle for infringements.
Orphans were strengthened by the
inclusion of Ken Hunter who will
he an asset to their team.
The Senior Girls game that
followed proved a walk over for
the Pats. The score being: Pats
36-K. Eve-22, H. Calderoni-12
and Mrs. Mol^ostie-2. High
School 10—M. Dresser-7, L. Dres
ser-2, M. Cloke 1.
Kathleen Eve was well on the
target and made the  most of the
snappy pass sent to her.   H. Cald
eroni also knew where the basket
The High School girls were cer
taiuly not up to tlieir usual Stan
dard and their checking was some
what weak.
The Senior A game between the
Celts and Sheiks was very fast
and there was plenty of good basketball and lots of successful shots.
The Celts held only a slight lead
at one time but after the inclusion
of Stuart Steel and Tony Calderoni they piled up quite a big ad-
vantange over the Sheiks. Scores:
Celts 33-C. Hill 10, S. Steele-8,
Ti Calderoni 10. A. McDonald 2,
M. Patrick-3.

Consolidated Co. May
Acquire Copper
Considerable interest has been
aroused in mining circles as to
whether the Consolidated Mining
and Smelting Co. will take over the
Copper Mountain mine and the big
concentrating mill at Allenby, owned by the Granby Consolidated
Mining, Smelting and Power Co.
The Consolidated Co. are evidently desirous of" acquiring it
should everything meet with their
approval. The following is taken
from a recent issue of the Princeton Star, and shows that a transaction is possible.
"S. G. Blaycock, vice-president
and general manager of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.
and W. M. Archibald, mines superintendent, spent two days at the
Copper Mountain property this
week and made a complete personal
examination of the whole mine.
"Their visit materially heightened
the interest in the Consolidated's
local activities, and is regarded as
an important point in the probability of the Tiail Company acquiring
the Granby operation.
"Messrs. Blaycock and Archibald
were accompanied  by two   other
Consolidated officials from Kimber-
ley,   both expert engineers.   The
examination • was   very   thorough,
and included both mine and mill.
"The visit of these men brought
the Consolidated's interest in this
property out of the realms of pure
speculation. Tremendous importance will hinge on their observations.
"A fortnight ago a party of eight
or ten Consolidated engineers visited the property and made a complete examination, hundreds of
pounds of samples being sent to
Trail for analysis.
"The Consolidated owns extensive
holdings in the Voight claims adjoining the Granby property; controls the West Kootenay Power and
Light Company, which supplies the
Copper Mountain and Allenby
plants; and has a strong affiliation
with the Canadian Pacific Railway,
which operates the Kettle Valley
line and Copper Mountain branch
line; and in addition the Consolidated has for some time been
anxious to divert to its Trail smelter the Allenby concentrates which
have been shipped to Tacoma for
the past two years," ALICE   ARM   AND  ANYOX  HERALD.   Saturday, January 17, 1931
Four Basic Industries of
Province Holding Average
Victoria, Jan. 10, 1931—While
returns for the year 1930 are still
necessarily incomplete, preliminary
estimates compare hopefully with
former years. It is true that revenues from the four basic indns
tries of the province will show
a falling off of about $25,000,000
from the abnormal year of 1929,
owing to decreased prices rather
than decrease of volume.    At the
Forestry $92,528,807
Agriculture 56,161.217
Mining 35,543,084
Fisheries 22,329,161
Total 206.662,269
It must be remembered that
1920 was a year of abnormal
prices following the war. This
accounts for the high values of
forestry returns as lumber prices
in that year reached the peak.
This is shown by the fact that
while financial returns were larger
the log scaling for 1920 showed
only 2,046,000,000 feet as against
approximately 2,360,000,000 for
1930. The same factor applies to
agriculture. While farm product
values were higher in 1920, quantity production was greater in
1925 with a smaller return.    It is
same time when the longer view is
taken aud the situation reviewed in
live year and ten year periods it
shows that the country has made
considerable progress within a decade. For the present year returns will be about $223,000,000 as
compared with $248,000,000 for
The following figures show the
changes within the past ten years:
1925 1930
81,941,000 85,000,000
48,951.514 60,000,000
61,492,242 55,000,000
22,414.618 23,000,000
214,799,374        223,000,000
gratifying to note that both in
quantity and value 1930 will show
a great advance in agriculture in
the past ten years. Mining returns will be about $20,000,000
and fisheries about $1,000,000 bet
ter than iu 1920. For the year
just closed the salmon pack has
been the best on record and the
fruit crop an abundant one.
These factors do much to counterbalance any falling off iu mining
and lumber, so that British Coluin
bia with its varied resources, can
support the present and face the
future with confidence and hope.
Exports of Canned Salmon
Shows Increase
For the first ten months of 1930
British Columbia exports of canned
salmon to Great Britain increased
both in quantity and value as compared with the same period of
1929. Exports for the first ten
mouths of 1930 amounted to 86.978
cwt., and values were $1,847,000.
an increase of about 22 per cent
over 1929.
Must Stabilize Silver To
Raise Price
It can with certainty be pre
dieted that until there is some
stabilizing force which can determine the price of silver so that it
can with safety be used in world
currencies, there can be no permanent solution of the silver problem.—Mining Congress Journal.

Canada Will Refine Her
Own Copper
A year ago, Consolidated Company at Trail had the only copper
refinery in Canada and the great
bulk of Canada's copper had to
be exported for refining. In a few
weeks, practically all Canada's
copper will he refined in Canada.
The one big new refinery is now in
operation at Copper Cliff and by
April Noranda's new refinery will
be working at Montreal East,
With these two refineries go fabricating plants to manufacture the

Big Increase In Silver
Production For
The following is taken from the
General Summary of the Preliminary Review of Mining Operations
for 1930 recently published by the
Department of Mines. It deals
with the silver and -copper production for 1930 and shows the source
of the bulk of these metals:
"Silver.—-The production of silver is estimated at 11,000,000 oz.,
as compared with 9,818,800 oz. in
1929, an increase ot 1,881,200 oz.,
or 19 per cent. This will be a new
high record for silver output in the
Province. The increase is mainly
due to an output of approximately
1.500,000 oz. from the Prosperity
mine at Stewart, a new producer
this year. In addition, the Premier made a larger production than
in 1929. A heavy decline was
registered from the Slocaii district,
where several former shippers
were closed down on account of
low metal prices.
"The value of the silver output
is estimated at $4,534,268 a decline
from the 1929   value of $722,002,

standing a reoord output, the
value, owing to the big drop in
silver prices, is less than any of the
last six years.
'The largest producer in the
Province is the Sullivan Mine,
followed by the Premier, with the
Prosperity in third place.
"The average price of silver for
the year is estimated at 38.426

52,993 cents in 1929, a decline of.
27.5 per cent.
Copper Production Declines
"Copper.—The output of copper
in 1930 is estimated at 92,000,000
lb„ valued at $11,928,720. This is
a decline in output of 9,483,857 lb.
and in value of $6,446,962.
"The decline in production is
accounted for the closing-down in
November of the Copper Mountain
mine and curtailment by the Hidden Creek mine, both owned by
the Granby Consolidated Mining
and Smelting Company. The de

"The tremendous drop in copper
price during the year from an
average of 18.107 cents a pound in
1929 to 12.966 cents in 1930 is
largely responsible for the big
decline in the value of the copper-
output, and has resulted in greatly
decreased profits for the two main
copper companies of the Province."
Canadian Census Will Be
Taken Next June
June is the month set for taking
the 10' year census of Canada's population, it is learned.
A certain Saturday night will
be specified and a record obtained
of all persons who slept in each

Officials will also take the lists
of those who sleep in boats and
trains in transit in the Dominion.
The census will be taken by elec

the country's 242 electoral districts
and under him house-to-house canvassers will function.
It will probably take several
days to complete the canvass, but

South America, he meets the beautiful niece of the charming and
lovable old lady, and falls in love
twice. Unable to rob the old lady
and her niece, he fights to escape
his bargain with the gambler.
There is action and great drama
iu this story which is adapted from
a stirring 0' Henry tale, "A Double Dyed Deceiver." It is produced
on a big scale in a tremendously
spectacular outdoor locale. The
interesting days of pioneer Texas
are authentically pictured in the
opening scenes, and the curious
customs of Spanish love-making
are seen in detail iu the South
American setting. A lilting touch
of humor keeps the entertainment
ou a thoroughly enjoyable plane.

United States first realized the
effect of the slump through its
produoing industry, when its sil
ver mines shut down and its miners
went idle. Great Britain is now
realizing the effect of the low
prices through her decreasing
foreign trade, when India can buy
half as well as China and other
Eastern peoples, on acoount of the
halved value of silver. A new
low for all time has been registered
this last month when silver touched the 28c mark. Common sense
will doubtless intervene between
golf games and horse racing in due
time, to the plight of more than
half of the world's population.
Then silver will be called in to
assist gold in carrying the burden
of the world's trade.—Mining and
