Funeral   of    Bonanza
Victims Held On
Saturday
The bodies of five of the victims
, of the Bonanza disaster, James
Grant, C. P. Johnstone, Alfred
Palm, Charles Mitchell and Paul
Anderson were laid to rest at the
Anyox Cemetery on Saturday
afternoon, November 15th. The
body of R. Luikkonen who met his
death during the week while hunting was also interred.
Never before has Anyox witnessed the sad 'speotacle of six
coffins being borne to the local
cemetery at one time. A large
number of people attended to pay
their last respects to the departed.
The procession left the morgufi
at 3 p. in. Silently and slowly it
bore the bodies to the little cemetery on the hill and as the service
was being conducted and the coffins lowered into the graves, a.
blinding snow storm obliterated
everything. Silently the people
left the gravesides, and tears stood
in many sorrowful eyes as the service was concluded.
The service was conducted by
Rev. J. S. Brayfield of the Anglican Church, and Rev. F. Bushfield
of the United Church. Men from
the Bonanza mine acted as pallbearers to their former fellow
workers.
Granby Closes Copper
Mountain Plant
Princeton Star
The Granby Consolidated Mining Smelting and Power Company
has announced that the Allenby
operations will be temporarily suspended from November 15. While
at this time a statement on the
matter is impractical, it is under
stood that the olosure will remain
until there is a definite improvement in copper prices. It may be
from three to six months, in the
general local opinion.
The decision is a serious industrial blow to the community and
means that over 600 men will be
thrown out of work at the Copper
Mountain Mine and Allenby mill.
In addition, a branch line of the
Kettle Valley Railway was maintained. The annual payroll of the
Granby Co. here was $1,000,000.
The property is the largest under
development locally, and has a
spotted history. Acquired by the
Granby Company about 1925 it
has had a splendid run of success. It was closed following the
post-war copper slump.
.; Princeton Board of Trade has
wired Hon. W. A. McKenzie, looal
member at Victoria, to urge some
local relief assistance.
Basketball Gaines Played This Week
. The basketball games played on
Thursday evening, November 13th.
were well contested, and some
good basketball was witnessed, especially in the last two games.
The floor was extremely slippery,
and proved a handicap to some ot
the players.
The Smelter overwhelmed the
Orphans by the score of 19 points
to 6.
The High School girls beat the
Pats 10 points to 6.
The chief game was between the
Shieks and Micos, and was closely
contested. The Micos won this
strenuously fought game by only
one point. The score was: Sheiks
17, Mioos 18.
The games played on Monday
night resulted as follows:
The Buds and Blossoms drew
with 11 points eaoh.
The Smelter again beat the Orphans by a big margin, the score
being 26-14. J. Ion was the top
scorer for the Smelter, and W.
Shields, a newcomer to the Orphans, obtained most of the points
for the losers.
The Celts beat the Sheiks by 19
points. Calderoni was the most
successful scorer.
Memorial Service For
Bonanza Victims
A memorial service for the victims of the Bonanza disaster was
held in the Recreation Hall on
Friday evening, November 14th.
A large number of people were
present, and the service was very
impressive. It was conducted by
Rev. J. S. Brayfield of the Angli
can Churoh and Rev. F. Bushfield
of the United Church. Rev. Bushfield delivered a very appropriate
address.
The singing was led by the
members of the Anyox Choral
Society, and the hymns were: ''O
God our Help in Ages Past,"
"Rock of Ages," aud "Abide with
me."
At the^close of the service everyone stood in silence while Mr. F
Dresser played the "Dead March
from Saul" on the piano.

The most cheering news that
has come to this district for the
past six months is the recent rise
Annual Report of Toric
Mines Co. Ltd.
in the price of copper. Last weekend copper suddenly advanced
from 9^ to 12 cents per pound.
A few days later it dropped a few
points, but latest advices state that
the price is now ranging from 11 %
to 12 cents. Copper at 91/* cents
a pound was causing some apprehension locally, and the rise in
price has been the cause of much
satisfaction. Copper at 12 cents
a pound will relieve the large
majority of people here of any anxiety regarding the future as continued operations are assured. If
the metal advances another few
cents, the hard times prevailing
throughout the world will not be
very keenly felt locally.
The people of Anyox and Alice
Arm are being given an opportunity of alleviating the distress of
the dependents of the men killed
in the Bonanza mine disaster. Although money is not as plentiful as
previously, and many families are
forced to watch closely the expen
diture of every dollar, it should be
remembered that those whose sup
porters were suddenly snatched
away are in a far worse predicament. We should endeavor to
place ourselves in the position of
those who have lost a husband or
father and then donate as liberally
as possible.
Government Safeguarding
Unemployment Fund
No contributions from the Dom
inion government for direct unemployment relief can be made except
on the receipt of certified accounts
of disbursements by municipalities
approved and endorsed by the provincial governments concerned.
This is the reply of Hon. Senator
Gideon Robertson, minister of
labor, to telegraphed requests from
Premier Tolmie of British Columbia
for immediate allocation of part of
the $4,000,000 direct relief fund.
Annual report of H. R. Budd,
president of Toric Mines Co. Ltd.,
states that owing to the very
serious drop in the price of silver
all work at the mine was stopped in
the spring. In accordance with the
agreement with Britannia Mining &
Smelting Co. Ltd. a new company
(Torbrit Mining Co. Ltd.) was
formed in which Britannia holds 75
per cent, of the stock and Toric 25
per cent.
Development work carried on
by Britannia until operations were
suspended had been encouraging,
stated Mr. Budd, adding that from
all the work accomplished it is
calculated that there is indicated
tonnage of approximately 500,000
tons of ore which may be won from
the mine.
Insufficient work has been done
to arrive at an exact essay, but it is
indicated that it may run between
13 and 17 ounces in silver per ton.
Until such time as the price of
silver increases to a point where
operations can be carried on at a
profit, no further development or
other work will be done. In the
meantime, a caretaker is in charge
of the property.

Riding on the Roof of the Rockies
Shadow Lake under the Shadow of Mt. Ball
A mong the most spectacular of the Trail Rides
ever attempted in the Canadian Rockies will be
the one proposed to start August 8 and lasting 18
days, to take in a long distance ride to the Columbia
Icefield from Lake Louise. This icefield is the
largest body of glacial ice left on the North American
continent covering 150 square miles and surrounded
by peaks from ten to twelve thousand feet in height.
The ride will be from Lake Louise up the Bow Valley to Bow Lake, over Bow Pass and by the Mistaya
Valley past Waterfowl Lakes to the North Saskatchewan River, then up the Alexandra River _Valley
to Castleguard and the Columbia Icefields.^ Only
Trail Riders holding at least the silver button, em
blematic of completion of 100 miles of trail riding,
will be permitted to join the expedition, since all
taking part must satisfy the committee that they
will not prove a burden to the rest of the party.
For less experienced Trail Riders, or those who
cannot spare the time, there will be a four-day ride
starting from Banff August 1 and ending at Castle
Mountain Bungalow Camp. It will take in the Egypt
Lake district, which will be accessible for the first
time this summer, so that those participating in thia
ride may regard themselves as pioneers. > Beautiful
Shadow Lake under Mount Ball will be the camp sit*
of the riders on the second day out and, in all, seven
glacier-fed lakes will be on the route of the trail.
DRAMA OF SEA SALVAGE
tt7 HEN the Canadian Pacific liner
Empress of France and the
Pacific Salvage Company's big
■team tug Salvage King rubbed
sides near the entrance to Victoria
Harbour recently greetings were
exchanged'between two principal
actors in an outstanding drama of
Canadian seamanship. They were
Captain Bunker, former master of
the freighter Havilah, and Captain
1 J. H. Hewison, master of the Salvage King, the former being a
passenger on the giant passenger
liner.
The tug after sixty days out of
her own port was returning after
performing the heroic feat of towing the disabled freighter Havilah
from Dutch Harbour, Alaska, to
Osaka, Japan,0through days of
constant gales, terrific seas and
under almost every kind of marine
handicap, a distance of 3,100 miles
Inset, Captain J. M. Hewison of tho
Salvage Kins, which la Been above, left,

France. *»
in the treacherous Bering Sea and
stormy North Pacific.
At one time with fifty-foot waves
dashing over both vessels and only
a fitful moon peering through
snow-filled darkness, the deckload
of lumber on the 9,000 ton Havilah
shifted and her steering gear went
awry and she listed over fast. The
"S.O.S." and fateful message "Wo
are sinking" went out by morse to
the little 1,000 ton Salvage King,
lifeboats were swung out, and men
stood by ready to sever the steel
tow line with an acetylene torch.
The freighter survived the storm,
however, and was towod through
gales and mountainous seas for
nine more days to Osaka, Japan,
covering 3,100 miles in 25 days.
When she met the Empress of
Prance, on which the cap'tain and
crew of the freighter were passengers, she was completing a voyage of 10,000 miles after having
performed a task that no other
salvage vessel on the Pacific had
been able to undertake. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD.   Saturday, November 22, 1930
Inquest Held  On  Bonanza
Victims
An inquest as to the cause of
death of the men killed at the
Bonanza mine on November 10th,
was held last week previous to the
funerals. It was adjourned until
Saturday afternoon, and upon the
arrival of T. J. Shenton, mines
inspector, was resumed. The verdict brought in was to the effect
that the disaster was caused by a
landslide during a wind and rain
storm which wrecked the bunkhouse the deceased were occupying at the time.

WHEN BUYING COAL
- REMEMBER -
Every ton of British Columbia coal used means employment for local miners and mine workers.
It means the maintenance of more homes in the Province-
It means the continued local circulation of fund 'which
otherwise would leave the Province.
It means, if every B. C. user of ooal will use local coal,
that the Vancouver Island, Nicola-Princeton, and Crow's
Nest Pass coal fields, whose coal workers have been struggling on half time or less for months, again will be favored
with prosperous conditions.
For these reasons British Columbians should consider
carefully the source of the coal which fills their bins this
winter.
Annual Reports, Bulletins, etc. may be
obtained free of charge, on application to

DO YOU EVER
APOLOGISE FOR
LIVING : : : IN
BRITISH COLUMBIA
You just can't imagine any
one apologising for the fact
that British Columbia is
"home" to them.
If you are proud to live in
British Columbia, you should
be proud to use the things
that British Columbians make.
Demonstrate your pride in
British Columbia every time
you make a purchase. Ask
