Alice Arm Chamber Of
Mines Hold Annual
Meeting
The annual meeting of the Alioe
Arm Branch of the B. 0- Chamber of Mines, was held at the Club
House of the Alioe Arm Athletic
Association on Monday evening.
President   M. Petersen  presided.
The m unites of the preoeding
meeting were read by Seoretary A.
D. Yorke and were adopted, as
was also the nnatioial report. The
reading of this report showed a
balance in hand of $200.28. Expenditures since the previous meeting had been $92.15. It was unanimously decided to transfer the
money in the bank, from a ourrent
to a savings acoount.
In regard to subscriptions for
mining magazines, it was stated
by the seoretary that three magazines were being paid for at present. It was decided that no
subscription renewals to any magazine be made until the consent of
the members at a meeting be obtained-
Nominations of members to' act
as officers for the ensuing year
were called for. J. Fiva was elected president; Gus. Anderson, vice-
president, and A. D. Yorke was
re-elected secretary. M. Petersen
and E. Moss were eleoted members
of the executive committee. All
. were elected by acclamation-
It was decided that an auditor
be appointed by the officers when
necessary.
Discussion ensued in regard to urgent repair work on the Dolly
Varden Railway as soon as the
suow is off the ground next spring.
It was pointed out by several
members that as this was the only
means of transportation up the
Kitsault Valley, it was vital for
everyone in the distriot that it be
repaired as early as possible. On
a motion being made it was unanimously deoided that a communication be forwarded to the Hon. Geo.
Pearson, minister of mines, and
Wm. J. Asselstine, M. L. A. for
Atlin, drawing their attention to
the necessity of early repair work
on the railway, and also that the
trail from the end of steel to the
Kitsault Glacier, a distance of
about 8 miles be improved so that
it can be used by tractors and that
other mining trails in the distriot
be re-oonditioned. That all those
employed upon such work be paid
by oheque.
A hearty vote of thanks was tendered to the retiring officers, and i
especially to the secretary, A.  D.
Yorke,   for  his   untiring   efforts J
Fight Card Will Surpass
Even Previous
Efforts
It is easy to conclude that the
Fight Card whioh is proposed for
February 23rd. in the Gymnasium,
will be of very great interest.
Everything points that way. The
main bout will be between the looal
favorite Benny Windle, and Jaok
MoEvoy, now at Prince Rupert
and formerly of Vancouver. MoEvoy has a real reputation aud is
expeoted to make Windle extend
himself. He took Bagshaw in two
rounds during the past month, and
meets Dido Gurvich very shortly.
The semi-windup will interest all
local fans as it will bring together
Herb Haldane, of Kincolith, and
Bob Pickton of Anyox, It will be
recalled that Pickton took the
count in his recent bout with Haldane, but he figures that this was
more a matter of luck than anything else and is confident that he
can reverse matters this time.
Eddie Parsons, who has had muoh
to do with handling looal fighters,
believes Pickton has every right to
anticipate a victory.
Several fighters have stated
tlieir willingness to enter the preliminary events, and the programme will without doubt be the best
ever presented here.
Alice Arm Notes
P. Petersen, who has spent the
past eighteen months placer mining
in the Atlin Country, returned on
Monday.
Mrs. Carlson arrived in town on
Monday from Vancouver.
A meeting of the Alice Arm Liberal Association will be held at the
Club House on Wednesday next,
January 24th. at 7.30 p.m. All
liberals are cordially invited.
since the organization was formed.
In regard to the further planting
of fish eggs in lakes, it was decided
to continue this for another year,
and previous efforts in this connection were commended. >
During the meeting it was suggested by the President, J. Fiva,
that as the Chamber of Mines had
been permitted to use the Club
House free of charge on many occasions, and that as the building
required a new roof, it was his
opinion that the Chamber of Mines
should put it on. He stated that
he had enough material on hand for
one side, and as M. Petersen stated
that he could supply the other half,
it is very probable that a roofing
bee will be formed next spring.
United Church Beach
Ladies'Aid Presents
Report
During 1933 the Beach Ladies'
Aid of the Anyox United Churoh
carried on under the following officers: President, Mrs. F. Bristow;
1st. Vice-President, Mrs. Dunwoodie; 2nd. Vioe-President, Mrs.
J. Dunn; Seoretary Mrs. Cormier;
Treasurer, Mrs. Forde; Silent Membership Convener, Mrs. Jas. McMillan.
Ten regular meetings aud three
speoial meetings were held. There
were nineteen active members and
a number of honorary members.
These latter found it inconvenient
to attend meetings but took a share
in the work and contributed in
various ways, their donations alone
amounting to over twenty dollars.
The chief work of the Ladies' Aid
is to raise finances, and various
means were adopted towards this
end. A Bean Supper held during
the year was very successful and a
play entitled "The Strike of the
Ladies'Aid," helped considerably.
A Sale of Work and Tea was held
at Easter, and later a Japanese Tea
was very successful. These activities for the year, were brought to
an end with a bazaar in the fall.
Donations were made to the Board
of the Church to help ont suoh expenses as Minister's salary, Missionary and Maintenance Fund, and
church debt. These contributions
totalled $240.00. A contribution
was also made towards the support
of the Girls' Home at Burnaby.
On Maroh 3rd. the ladies co-operated with the ladies of the Anglican Church in a prayer service,
that day being the Women's National Day of Prayer. Thirty-two
visits were made during the year
to people who were ill or to newcomers- The Ladies' Aid regretted
the loss, through removal from
Anyox of Mrs. James MoMillan aiid
Mrs. Mary L. Dunn, who was president of tho Association for five
years.
And Still It Snows!!
Uo to 5 p m. on Wednesday last
the 17th. the total snowfall at
Anyox for the present winter was
16 ft. 9 inches. It still has a long
way to go, however, before reaching the figures of 1931-32, when
the total snowfall reoorded was
59 ft. 5 inches. During the recent
cold spell the lowest reading of the
thermometer at No. 1 Dam waB 19
below, which was the coldest for at
least seventeen years.

the Community League, held on
Wednesday the 10th. a large
amount of business was transacted

month or early in February.
Much attention was also given
to basketball, as several offers had
been received from outside basketball teams to visit here and tackle
the local players.
The Council wish to extend
thanks to the ladies who so kindly
assisted at the recent Christmas
party for the children; viz, Mrs,
Todd, Mrs. Keonen, Mrs. Marston,
and Mrs. Weir, also Miss Flora

this having been deoided upon at a

At Hoop Game
Three good basketball games

the Vandals B. and the Warriors
stepping up a little higher in the
B League. Trojans registered a
decisive win over the Mechanics in
the A League. First to face each
other were the Rovers and Warriors, the former being snowed under
with a 29 to 6 score. This was
mainly due to lack of some of their
regular players, while the Warriors
were out in full strength. Amy
starred for the .winners with thirteen points. The teams: Rovers,
M. Flye, M. Kirby, W. Pinckney 4,
L. McCarthy 2, D. Summers.
Warriors: Dan McDonald 9, Obe-
chini, Amy 13, O'Neill, B. Nelson,
Dominato 7.
Playing with every ounce they
could muster, the Pirates held back
Vandals B to a score of 20-15 in
the second encounter. Both teams
played hard for a win, the weight
and greater experience of the
miners finally telling against tne
fast and willing marauders. It
was au excellent game, well handled by referee Dwyer.
The teams: Pirates, Hardy 2' McDonald 2, Soott 8, Ferguson 3.
Deeth, J. Dodsworth. Vandals B:
McMillan 4, White 1, Windle 1,
Heinekey 9, Reid 5, Gourlay.
Although it failed to rouse much
enthusiasm among the fans, the
tilt between Mechanics A aud Trojans was a splendid exhibition of
fast and open basketball. The
Trojans led the lathemen from the
start, although ill-luck dogged the
latter, as time and again they
missed where they should have
scored. At half-time the Trojans
had established a nice lead and it
was not until the closing minutes
of the game that the Mechanics
began to pull up on their vigorous
opponents. Buntain and L. Gillies
starred for the losers, the former
uncorking a surprising amount of
speed, but being effectually checked
when attempting to score. B.
Gillies shone with a total of 16
points for the Trojans, while F.
Dodsworth and H. Dresser were
pillars of strength. It was a game
well worth watching. The teams:
Mechanics: Buntain 8. D. Hamilton, L. Gillies 7, Watson 2, I.
Davies 2. Trojans: W. Shields 2,
H. Dresser 5, B. Gillies 16, F. Dodsworth, T. Soott 3, A. Dodsworth,

New Milling Machinery
Going To Dunwell
Mine at Stewart
Dunwell Mines Ltd. completed
financing arrangements last week,
which, according to R. M. Stewart,
managing-director, will ensure
sufficient capital to rehabilitate the
mill. He stated that machinery
would be on its way within a week
and provided that the weather is
not so severe as to interfere with
concrete work, he expects that the
mill will be in operation within 90
"days.
Mr. Stewart advises that the
operation is fully financed and that
there will be no necessity for raising
any further capital.
Present plans call for getting
men on the ground at once with a
view of having ample broken ore in
the bunkers and stopes, well ahead
of the mill requirements. The
initial mill capacity will be about 25
tons daily, but it is planned to increase the daily tonnage as ore developments warrant.
The Dunwell mill was operated
for several months in 1927, and
was afterwards sold to Bralorne.
Results obtained by leasers; particularly during the past 18 months,
have been of an encouraging nature
inducing the company to make
plans for resuming operation. From
a 10 per cent, royalty on the returns of three groups of leasers the
company realized enough in the
past two years to pay its taxes.
The leasers reconditioned a small
mill to work on a small scale and
between January 1, 1933 and August 10, 1933, treated 484.13 tons,
yielding 526.97 ozs. gold; 19,965
ozs, silver. At an average price
for gold at $25 and 35c. for silver
the net value of the shipments at
Stewart was reported at $13,294.
Most of the leases expired at the
end of 1933.

Gold and Silver Mining Co. Ltd. on

Development Work Is
Planned On Hercules
Another mining development
planned in Salmon River section of
the Portland Canal district is that
of Hercules Mines, Ltd. which has
a group of four claims and a fraction, 157 acres in all, adjoining the
Big Missouri on the north. The
successful results attending exploration on Big Missouri have an important effect on Hercules, and one
of the objectives of the Buena Vista
Company is to explore by tunnel an
ore zone which extends to the border of the Hercules property,
Engineers' reports estimate in
one working 70,000 tons of gold
ore with a gross value of over
$600,000, with gold at $20.67 per
ounce, while another working
should develop 60,000 tons of ore
with a value of $1,000,000.
"Where's that little Jewish kid
that came to work this morning?"
"Oh, he left to go into business
for himself."
Organization Formed To
Increase Silver Use
An organization, named the Silver Dollar Association has been
recently formed in Vancouver for
the purpose of educating the public
on the silver question. It will urr,e
the Dominion Governr . to observe the provisions of the Currency
Act passed in 1910 whereby the
Canadian silver dollar, approximately three-quarters of an ounce
was authorized. The result of this
section was to fix a minimum price
of approximately $1.25 per ounc
for silver for coinage purposes in
precisely the same terms as a min
imnm price was fixed for gold for
coinage purposes.
Up to the present no silver dollar has been coined in Canada, and
if the Department of Finance could
be prevailed upon to accept a certain quantity of silver each month
for coinage it would give a great
stimulus to silver mining in Canada, and at the same time provide a
domestic market for Canadian silver. Expectations now prevail
that the government may do something with regard to silver at the
next session.
is taking up stock as required to
finance operations.
Since work began last summer a
power line has been installed and
an aerial tramline is nearing completion.
The intention is to begin shipping
selected high grade ore which has
been taken from the development
tunnels and sacked. These shipments will begin as soon as the
tramline is ready for operation
which will be very shortly. The
ore selected for sacking runs from
$50 to $60 per ton. Values are
chiefly in silver with some gold and
a fair proportion of lead and zinc.
Three tunnels which had been started on the property by former operators, drifting in ore, have been
extended and a quantity of high
grade from these tunnels has been
sacked.

"MAY I USE THE 'PHONE?"
Empress of Britain as Floating Pay Station.
Madeira got a new thrill recently when telephone
communication was established between that
pleasant island and London, England for the first
time.
The occasion was the arrival of the Canadian
Pacific liner Empress of Britain at Funchal on a
cruise around the world. This magnificent new liner
has the most powerful ship-to-shore telephone
system in the world and Madeirans were not slow to
recognize a chance to make island history.
During her stay there, lying at anchor just beyond
the famous Loo Rock, the Empress was host to many
visitors. Amongst these were two who casually
aBked, "May I use the 'phone?"
Just as casually the telephone of erator of the ship
called up London and put the callers through over
1,323 miles of water.
Reports from the Empress of Britain, now at
Colombo, Ceylon, indicate that the wireless telephone
is a popular feature of the ship. The longest distance
yet reported is Haifa, Palestine, to Montreal. The
liner works on a daily schedule with Canada, through
the Canadian Marconi stations at Yamachiche and
Drummondville, Quebec, and the Bell long distance
board in Montreal.
Photos show: Empress of Britain at Madeira with
Loo Rock in the for»ground, and a typical bedroom

stride after the Christmas inactivity. The numerous fans on liiiiul
had many thrills handed out lo
them and it was evident that the
second half of the season will be
even more interesting than the
first half.
Somen hat unexpectedly and to
the delight of numerous supporters
Pirates beat the Mechanics B in a
fust and clever tussle. At half
time the machine «aen were 13 to

McDonald 2, Hardy 2. Ferguson 4,
K. Fuldoner2, Deeth 5, Dodsworth

A change has been made in the
two teams comprising the ladies'
league. This is a general rearrangement of the players on the
teams, with the object of better
balance and the removal of the one
sidedness which was so apparent.
With true sportsmanship, the
Spooks team agreed to split up
tlieir team, half their players going
over to the Aues, and the forces of
the latter team were also divided.
This action, after the many victories of the Spooks this season, was
most commendable and has met
with the approval of all fans of the
game. Friday's tussle resulted in
a win for the Spooks after an evenly matched bout. The teams: Aces,
M. Cloke, H. Simpson, M. Phillip,

Tight Fit But Paint Untouched
„ .......;. ,..,-.-.,«./.
Residents ot Panama Canal
Zone had their biggest thrill
since the "big ditch" was finished when the Canadian Pacific
liner "Empress ot Britain" passed through the canal in April.
As the largest vessel ever to navigate the canal the Empress received unusual attention. In fact
as far as canal officials were
concerned, she was viewed with
furrowed brows. The lock-keepers, If they wanted to, could have
lumped aboard her, so tightly
did she fit.
Furrowed brows marked Chief
Officer, W. G. Busk-Wood, R.N.R.,
of the Empress of Britain. As
tbe "Mate"- he is responsible for
her gleaming white painted sides
and bets were freely offered that
he would have to put men over
the side when she reached Cristobal to re-paint. Scotchmen
amongst the 481 passengers covered every bet—they had faith ln
the Scottish caution of Commodore R. 0. Latta, her commander.
It was a tight fit, but never a
scratch of paint!
The photograph shows the
Empress of Britain entering the
Pedro Miguel lock. Her passengers crowded the decks to
watch the spectacle and so interesting was this feat of navigation that Chief Steward Frank
Moss complained that for the first
time in four and a half months
they forgot to eat!

Among the Basketball teams
that are anxious to visit Anyox is
the Metlakatla quintette, who desire to play a two-game series here.
This is a team with a long string
of victories to their credit, and it is
understood that they have recently
defeated Ketchikan. If arrangements mature for this visit they
will probably make the Anyox
boys step lively.
Another team seeking some
games here is the Prince Rupert
Ladies squad. It is a long time
since a ladies' team invaded our
precincts, and such a visit would
meet with the approval of all local
fans. The C. N. R. team, champion men's team of Prince Rupert,
also aspire to take the measure of
the local boys. This team visited
Anyox last, season. The League is
in communication with these various teams in an endeavour to arrange possible visits.

Railways and their Important
functions ln the economic existence of the State were stressed
by G. O. Ommanney, development
commissioner of the Canadian
Pacifio Railway at the annual
banquet of the Traffic Club of
Hamilton recently. They had, he
said, contributed materially to development of natural resources,
building up of industries and tn
promoting land settlement and
agriculture.
Railway and motor truck transportation are both essential to the
economic wellbelng ot Canada
and neither should be antagonistic to the other, stated Hon. R. J.
Manion, minister of railways and
canals, at a national conference
on transportation held at Ottawa
recently. But, he added, while
railways are subject to strict regulation and control, motor truck
service has not as yet been
brought under any comparable
control or regulation.
