Portraits Presented To
Schools By I. 0. D. E.
Members of Collison of Kincolith
Chapter, T. O. D. E. visited the
Anyox Schools on Monday afternoon to present portraits of H. R,
H. the Prince of Wales. At each
institution the children were assembled on the grounds, the cere
mony beginning with "O Canada"
and concluding with the National
Anthem. In making the presentations the Regent, Mrs. J. W. Lang
touched on the work of the I. O
D. E. and its purpose and relation
to the work of Empire development. Speaking in reply, one
principal expressed the hope that
"by cultivating in the young people of the Empire of to day those
qualites of personality and citizenship for whioh the world admires
the Prince" of Wales, it may be
possible for the Prinoe, when he is|
oalled to be head of the British
Commonwealth, to lead a more
highly trained people to even
greater achievement." 1
In announcing the release of his
Annual Report for 1929, Honorable
W. A. McKenzie, Minister of
Mines, draws attention to the satisfactory record of continued expansion in the mining industry of the
Province. The year was characterized by a new high record for the
gross valuation of metals and minerals produced—the figure being
$68,245,443, or nearly $3,000,000
higher than in 1928. This increased production was accompanied
by a widespread development, and
exploration and prospecting were
vigourously carried on . in many
areas. A record figure of $13,743,-
308 was paid out in dividends by
the mining companies of the Province.
The Annual Report of the Minister of Mines is a complete record of
mining operations in the Province.
It contains detailed statistical figures and exhaustive reports by the
Resident Engineers and Mine Inspectors; and is compiled by John
D. Galloway; Provincial Mineralogist.
Until the last two months of the
year, metal and mineral production
was at a slightly higher rate, in the
aggregate, than in 1928, but curtail,
ment in November and December
resulted in decreased yearly outputs
in some of the products of the industry. The explanation of the
higher valuation is largely due to
the much higher price of copper
metal during 1929 and also a slightly higher average price ot lead.
The tonnage of metalliferous ores
mined in the Province during the
year was 6,977,681 tons, as compared with 6,241,310 tons in 1928,
an increase of 11.8 percent.
By value, the various products of
the mineral industry produced in
1929 are ranked in the following
order: Copper, lead, coal, zinc, silver, structural materials, gold, miscellaneous metals and minerals.
The quantity of copper produced
was 101,483,857 lbs., which is a
new high record and the first time
that the output has been in excess
of 100,000,000 lbs.; the valuation
at $18,375,682 is also a record
Lead output in 1929 was 302,346,-
268 lbs., or only slightly less than
in 1928. Owing to a higher market price for lead, the value was
more tban a million dollars greater
than in the preceding year.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher;
Radio will provide the most
radical departure in campaigning
in the approaching federal election.
Over 2,000,000 people stretching from the international boundary
line to the frozen northern wastes
will be able, when the campaign is
actively on, to tune in nightly on
one or another of the prominent
figures in either of the old parties,
to hear at first hand a much more
complete presentation of the issues
than it is possible to gather from
necessary condensed reports.
There will be national hook-ups
for both the Premier and Mr. Ben-
ett and there will be provincial
hook-ups for them and their chief
lieutenants. There will be local
broadcasts, in every settled section
of the Dominion.
What the effect will be upon
attendance at the-public meetings
remains to be seen. There is, of
course.no substitute for personal
contact between political leaders
and the public whose franchise
they seek, but the radio is the most
personal of mediums apart from
actual contact.
Direct mail publicity, persona
letters directed to the recipient will
largely supplant the general broadcasting of printed matter. There
is to be a drive to make the
campaign and the issues a matter
of direct personal interest to the el
ector, to make him feel that he is a
shareholder with a material interest
in the business of the country and
that this election is the "annual
meeting" at which he chooses the
board of directors who will run his
national business for the next four
or five years.
This Year, of all years, is a
period in which the grubstake enterprise should flourish. With
millions out of work, more prospectors than ever should be in the
hills, hunting for ore outcrops that
may make a new crop of millionaires in 1940. The great fortunes
in mining were made by grub-
stakers and prospecting concerns—
a fact which is frequently overlooked in the current hysterical desire for quick profits through stock
manipulation of the Wall Street
brand. If the 45-billion-dollar
stock deflation directs money again
into legitimate grubstakes and prospecting ventures, it may prove to
have been worth the price.—Spokane Mining Truth,
"It was terrible," said Mrs.
Murphy. "There were twenty-
seven English and an Irishman lost
in the wreck."
"Indade,"exclaimed Mrs.Grogan.
"The poor man.'
B. C. Silver Co. May
Instal Mill
While not yet in a position to
talk in terms of positive blocked
out tonnage, C. A. Banks, consulting mining engineer, at the annual
meeting with the Selukwe Gold
Mining and Finance Co. Ltd. in
London, stated that it was reasonable to expect that the various ore
bodies found at B, C. Silver, adjoining the Premier, would produce
between six million and ten million
dollars of around $15 ore.
Other ore bodies would no doubt
be found, he added.
Development had now reached
the stage when the property was
warranted in being equipped with a
mill to treat 100 tons a day to begin
with and this to be increased to 250
tons as the ore bodies were put
into shape for mining and as development warranted.
The alternative to equipping the
property with a mill would be some
satisfactory arrangement with the
Premier Co. he pointed out.
Granby Big Ore Reserve
Copper Mountain
H. C. Smith, general manager
of the Grandy Company, in a recent address at Copper Mountain,
said that while not at liberty to
divulge the actual ore reserve at
Copper Mountain, there was enough ore to maintain the mine at
its normal capacity of 2500 tons
daily for many, many years. At
present the company employs 375
men at Copper Mountain and 125
at Allenby, with an annual payroll
exceeding $1,000,000.

Mrs. Henpeck. "Yes, there has.
You see, it was like this, my husband once thought he was boss, but
I soon cured him."
No widespread or general depression exists in Canada, though
several factors, notably the failure
to market our grain and the loss in
buying power resulting therefrom,
have contributed to a slowing-up
of traffic, declared E. W. Beatty,
chairman and president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, addressing
the shareholders of the company
at the 49th annual meeting held
early In May. He added that
there was nothing of a fundamental
character which should prevent
the return of normal business conditions within the next few months.
Mr. Beatty said, "We have all been
hopeful that the first and perhaps
most essential change both because of Its psychological as well
as its commercial effect, namely,
the free movement of grain out ot
the country, would be in eyidence
during this or next month."

Value of B. C. Mineral
Production 1929 Establishes New Record
Increased Output and Record
Dividends Shown
Continued from page 1
The coal production for the year
is valued at $11,256,260, as compared with $12,633,150 in 1928, a
decrease of $1,376,890, or 10.9
per cent. The decrease was general in all districts in the Province.
The decline in coal output does not
indicate a lessened fuel-consumption in the Province, but shows the
further inroads being made in the
Provincial coal industry by imported fuel-oil and imported coal, the
latter particularly from Alberta.
The production of lode gold in
1929 amounted to $3,004,419 as
compared with $3,888,097 in 1928,
a decrease of 22.7 per cent. The
decrease was mainly caused by a
lower production from the Premier.
Placer-gold output also decreased,
the value being recorded at $118,-
711, as compared with $143,208 in
1928—a decline of 17.1 per cent.
The outlook for 1930 is that probable declines in the production  of
silver, zinc, and coal will be compensated by larger outputs of other
metals and minerals—at least in
part. With present conditions,
however, it is not to be expected
that 1930 will set a new record for
production, but an output close to
that of recent years should easily be
Prospecting was active and some
notably important new discoveries
were made, particulary the Manville
group in the Taku River section.
While doubts are freely expressed
regarding mining because of low
metal prices closing down some
producing mines, the Minister
points out that the main operations
of the Province are proceeding as
usual, that prospecting, scouting
and development will be active in the
1930 season and there is much that
is cheering in the continued expansion of the Consolidated Company.
A vast new chemical-fertilizer industry is rapidly nearing completion
at this company's plant at Trail,
coupled with extensive hydro-electric development. The past 30 years
has shown that mining in British
Columbia has steadily increased regardless of fluctuations in metal
prices or other. adverse features,
and continued expansion is to be
expected. '

prepared for the coming annual invasion by thou-
L sands of tourists from Canada and the United
States, the British Columbia Coast Steamship service
of the Canadian Pacific Railway will have in service
during the coming summer in Washington, British
Columbian and Alaskan waters, nineteen passenger
vessels, two of them brand new, the whole fleet representing a total of 68,346 gross tons, accommodation
for 17,274 passengers with 3,247 beds in 1,691 staterooms and dining room accommodation for 1,729.
Two new sister vessels, the "Princess Joan" and
the "Princess Elizabeth," each of 6,800 tons, will be
added to th"? service between Vancouver and Victoria.
These twin-screw oil-burning ships which recently
turned in spectacular performances in their trial runs,
have a total of 816 beds in 420 staterooms and on day
runs will increase the fleet's carrying capacity by a
total of 8,000 passengers.
Addition of these new ships will relieve the strain
of increasing summer travel between Vancouver and
Victoria, and enable the company to release more
ships for its Seattle-Victoria-Vancouver triangle run;
its west coast of Vancouver Island service; its Gulf
Island excursions; Powell River, Comox and Ocean
Palls-Prince Rupert schedules, and its popular Alaska
service through the scenic Inside Passage.

The big dance held during the
evening was one of the outstanding
events of the day. It was held in
T. W. Falconer's hall and the spacious floor was crowded with dancers during the entire evening.
Splendid musio was furnished by
an orchestra composed of both
Alice Arm and Anyox musicians,
and many of. the numbers were encored again aud again. Among
the Anyox musicians were Miss
W. Powell, E. R, Oatman and Sid
An excellent supper was served,
which was greatly appreciated.
The closing of the dance brought
to an end one of the most enjoyable Empire Day Celebrations held
in Alice Arm for a long time.
The arranging and carrying out
of the entire program was under
taken by the Alice Arm Athletic
Association. The major portion of
the work fell upon the ladies, and
much credit is due to them for the
splendid success obtained. During
the day they dispensed ice cream
and lemonade at the sports and on
the ball grounds, and also at the
dance in the evening. They also
had charge of the supper arrangements at the dance, which entailed
a lot of work, due to the large
number present.
"I have been visiting England
for twenty years," said the American, "but have never never found'
the smart business man we have
in New York."
The Englishman was nettled.
"No." he replied, "you will find
that sort in prison here."
