Timber Wolves at Alice
Arm Are Becoming
Bolder
The bands of timber wolves that
have surrounded Alice Arm for the
past month, are becoming bolder.
Hunger has forced them to even
enter the town, and their weird long
drawn howls, which heretofore
were heard only at a distance, were
heard during this week within a few
hundred feet of several residences
on the hill side west of the town.
Their depredations are also increasing. A few evenings ago they
killed a spaniel dog belonging to
J. A. Wheatley, 300 feet from his
house. Recently they dragged the
dead body of a calve from the wood
shed of J. Sauer, who operates a
farm near the Illiance river, and
last week-end they partly devoured
a tame goat, belonging to W. Stephen, that had become bogged in a
I'water hole near his house.
On Thursday evening, their howls
I rent the air within a few hundred
[ feet of the residences of S.   Fraser
I and H. F. Kergin, and wolves were
observed   quite   near on the tide
flats.      On   Friday morning daybreak revealed several a short distance up the hill.  They also recently invaded the garden ot J.  Skon-
sing, and from his observations the
leader was a tremendous specimen,
gaunt and forbidding.
The close proximity of the wolves
this week have spurred several trappers and woodsmen to hunt them
down, but so far they have not
been fortunate enough to encounter
them.

J. C. Studdy arrived home last
Saturday from Anyox hospital,
where he had undergone an operation on his foot.
The Alice Arm Athletic Association will hold a card party at the
Club House this evening, commencing at 8.15 p.m. A silver collection will be taken.
On Saturday next, January 30th.
the members of the Alice Arm orchestra will hold a basket social
and dance. A real good time is
assured and it is hoped that everyone will be present.
Manitoba and the nearby Onta^
rib field west of Fort William, will
have at least seven gold produoers
in 1932 as compared with four in
1931 and one in 1930.
Four Basketball Games
Were Played During
Week
A large crowd of fans were treated to three good games of basketball on Friday the 15th. In the
Boys' Intermediate Section the
Wildcats and Scouts clashed, the
result being a very close score of
13 to 12, the Scouts being on the
short end. This was an excellent
game throughout.
The Ladies' game, High School
vs. Spooks, proved a tough tussle,
and not until 30 seconds before the
final whistle was the deciding basket scored. Both sides played well
the Spooks especially passing nicely and having perhaps the better
of the play. A little more team
work would greatly improve the
Students. An unfortunate incident
was a head-on collision between
the Calderoni sisters, Miss Helen
Calderoni and Mrs. N. Roberts, both
playing for the Spooks. This
stopped the game for a few min
utes, both players retiring tempor
arily, and playing later on. Miss
D. Grigg, a recent addition to the
High-school Squad, was of much
value to her side. She soored four
baskets aud three foul goals, and
put the Students on the winning
side with a beautiful shot just half
a minute before time.
In the Men's Senior Division the
Concentrator and Vandals locked
horns, the latter winning with a
score of 21 to 13. The Millmen put
up a game fight and deserve a bet
ter fate. The ranks of the Vandals
have been strengthened by the
addition of Ivor Davies, late of the
Celts, and this team now has a
number of brilliant players.
On Monday the 18th. the Celts
and Concentrator teams met. the
former winning a somewhat easy
victory with a score of 24 to 11.
Elks Winners In Both Billiard
Leagues
In both the Senior and Junior
Billiard Leagues the Elks are the
winners for the first half of the
season. In the Senior League they
won comfortably from the Orphans
who were the runners up, and in
the Junior League they 'won by
one point only from the Boiler
Shop after an exciting game. Interest has not waned with the
opening of the second half, and all
teams are on their toes to demonstrate their ability with the balls
and oues.
Elks Install Officers For
Ensuing Year
The ceremony for installation of
the newty elcted officers of the B. P.
O. E, took place on Monday, January 18th.
District Deputy Grand Exalted
Ruler G. E. Mitchell journeyed
from Prince Rupert to act as Installing Officer, and was assisted in
his duties by Brother B. M. Buck.
There were a good number of
members present* and the impressive ceremony was carried out with
due regard for every detail. The
newly elected officers are: Exalted
Ruler, M. J. Sheen: I. P. E. R.,
C. Harman; Leading Knight, H.
Halicow; Loyal Knight, fames Mc-
Greggor; Lecturing Knight, P.
Powell; Treasurer, E. R. Oatman;
Secretary, C. Tully; Inner Guard, J.
Wier; Tyler R. Buttery; Chaplain,
M. W. Webber; Esquire, K.
Hunter; Trustee, M. Cranley; Organist, F. Dresner; Historian, J.
McColl.
At the close' of the ceremony
the members present adjourned
to the supper room, where an enjoyable social evening was spent.
Gregory Smith Passes Away
In South
Word was received in Anyox a
number of days ago that Gregory
Smith has passed away in Esson-
dale Mental Hospital. The date of
his death has not so far been ascertained. Gregory's serious illness,
as reported in a'previous issue, culminated in his death. His father,
Mr. J. Smith lives at Milan Landing,
near Sooke, V. I. and there is also
a sister living in England.
Morley Shier Shows Explosive
Pictures at Theatre
Mr. Morley Shier, representative
of the Canadian Industries Limited
brought with him on his recent
visit some reels of pictures on" Ex
plosives." These were shown at
the Mine ou Monday last, and at
the Beach Theatre on Wednesday.
Mr. Shier gave a very interesting talk on the subject of explos
ives at both showings, and these
talks were greatly appreciated.
Mineral production in Manitoba,
iu 1931, appears likely to pass the
$10,000,000 mark, or in other
words, double the output of 1930.
Were metal prioes normal the mineral output of this province would
reach the $20,000,000 mark this
year.
The Smiling Lieutenant
At Anyox Theatre
Tonight
You don't know Maurice Chevalier until you've seen "The Smiling
Lieutenant," which has the whole
of Maurice Chevalier bound up in
a single joyous role. His captivating personality, his sly and wicked
love-making, his meaningful singing of the meaningful lyrics, all
these things, which each of the pictures to now have presented in part,
are projected at full force from the
screen in "The Smiling Lieutenant''
The picture is another of those
delicious Ernst Lubitsch productions, but, unlike "The Love Parade," it is a real, down-to-earth
comedy romance dealing with a
smart and carefree soldier whose
smile wins him the heart of two
women, it has delightful comedy
moments interspersed with tense
emotional scenes. Claudette Colbert and Miriam Hopkins are the
sweethearts who turn Chevalier's
head and heart.
Charlie Ruggles' characterization
is an asset to the picture which in
less brilliant circumstances, would
make a show all its own.
But, perhaps the outstanding feature of the show are Chevalier's
songs, songs which, put across in
Chevalier's own inimitable style,
send the audiences out lilting and
humming. "Breakfast Table Love"
"That's the Army," "Jazz up your
Lingerie" are tuneful lyrics which
are recalled and recalled with a
smile.
Don't fail to see this picture at
the Beach Theatre tonight January
23rd.
Anyox  Mill Waste Is Not
Responsible for Fouling
Fishermen's Nets
In the season of 1930 some 30 or
40 gill nets worth each $200 or
more were fouled and sunk by the
mud at the bottom of the Naas
River. Some of the fishermen
thought that the trouble was due to
discharges of milled rock from Anyox concentrator, and last year the
matter was investigated by Dr. W.
H. Martin of the Department of
Chemistry, University of Toronto.
He finds that the trouble is due to
jellyfish and similar organisms
which bind the nets. The trouble
occurs near the mouth of the river
and follows exceptionally high tides
with the consequent mixing of water containing silt and sea water
containing marine life.
Granby Co. Dividends
Are Being Steadily
Reduced
Exclusive of allowance for depreciation depletions and federal taxes,
the operations of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and
Power Co. Ltd. for the quarter ending September 30th. showed a loss
of $5,696; income from other
sources for the quarter amounted
to $57,879. For the nine months
to September 30th. operating income amounted to $69,349 and
'other income" $160,317; or a
total of $299,666. Dividends have
been reduced to an annual rate ot
50c. per share by the declaration of
a dividend of \2]/2 cents per share
payable February 1 1932, to shareholders of record January 15, 1932.
The February and May quarterly
disbursements were on the basis of
$2 per share annually, while with
the disbursement on Augnst 1, the
rate was reduced to an annual rate
of $1 per share. The dividend just
declared brings the annual rate to
50 cents per share. While the disbursement is referred to as ''dividend," in reality the company has
paid no dividends since 1919. In
1927 payments were initiated to
shareholders as a return of capital
from reserve fund for depletion and
depreciation. In 1927 $1 per share
was paid. In 1928 it was increased
to $3 per share, and in 1929 $7 per
share was paid, while last year
$5.25 per share was distributed,
and this, which with the payment
just announced,- brings the total
capital return to $17.62 per share.

"Wildey Night" Celebrated
By Anyox Oddfellows
On Monday evening the Oddfellows of Anyox celebrated the
anniversary of the founder of their
Order, Mr. C. Wildey.
The proceedings took the form of
a card party, supper and dance,
there being a select number of
members and their lady friends
present.
Forthe whist drive, Mrs. Malcolm McDonald proved top scorer
for the ladies and secured first
prize. Mr. McMillan from the
Mine, proved the best among the
men, while Mr. C. Macgregor
earned the booby prize.
After an enjoyable supper dancing was indulged in until a late
hour. The newly-elected Entertainment Committee proved themselves
to be excellent hosts. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD, Saturday, January 23,  19S2
Problems Confront Re-
Distribution of Legislative Seats
Every ten years the Dominion
takes its census, and according to
the resulting showing of shifts of
population, the Provincial Government have to delve into the problems of redistribution. Usually the
changes are ill the direction of an
increase of members sent to tho
Legislature, there has, however
been some change of mind on the
part of public opinion.
Although 1921—2 was a period
of deflation and commercial de
pression, the administration, then
ruling, increased the members tw
48.after considerable controversy
and discussion. At present there
is an outcry for economy, and there
is some demand for a reduction of
representation in the Legislature;
some suggesting that the members
should be reduced by half to 24
members and others thought a
reduction to 40 members might
meet the case.
The problem is no;, as simple
us some economists would have us
believe, for it requires a good dea
of thought.
The average cost of legislation
in British Columbia is, of late years,
somewhere around $125,000 annua
lly, or less than £ of 1 per cent of
the total disbursements passing
through the Provincial Treasury.
Whether this amount is considered too much or not, the purpose
of representation must also be taken into account. If a member's
duty is to keep himself in close
contact with conditions within his
constituency, so that he can place
the facts clearly before the legis-
ature when it; sits, then the ques
tion accessibility of a constituency
must be taken into consideration.
When it is remembered that the
area of British Columbia comprises
372,630 square miles, with great
concentration of population within
only a few centres, and the rest
only poorly developed and sparsely
populated, the difficulties of doing
justice to all will be apparent.
Take for instance the Riding of
Atlin covering 63,221 squate miles;
Mackenzie', covering 26,476 square
miles; Omineca, covering 71,251;
Fort George, covering 71,641;
Cariboo, covering 28.100; aud Lillooet covering 10,847 square miles.
It is obvious that these ridings
are already large, and any suggestion of merging one or the other of
them with another constituency
would immediately raise the cry of
injustice because of the very large
territory which a member will
have to traverse to keep in touch
with conditions. Travelling expenses will have to be provided by
the country, as is already done iu
some of the other Provinces shown
in tabulation below, und when we
do that the object for which a reduction of members is being eonsid
ered    will    have   been   defeated,
because what is the Sessional Indemnity will be spent in travelling
allowances.
On the other hand, it has been
suggested that the larger Cities
now represented by several members each, might without difficulty,
so far as being able to keep in contact with conditions is concerned,
have the number of their representation reduced. It is true enough that the big City Members
will have no difficulty in keeping
iu touch with the voters, but the
Cities can claim that the urban
population in the two cities of
Victoria and Vancouver alone represent more than 50% of the Prov
ince,   and  that   they    contribute
l
probably   three quarteis   of   the
Revenue, and therefore their
interests should not be allowed to
suffer through insufficient representation.
The Government is therefore up
against a complex problem. The
Rural constituencies have the area
and potentialities for development
in the future but are at present
only peopled b? scattered settlements; and the Urban Constituen
cies, while vety small in area, are
populated and contribute the bulk
of the revenue of the Province.
The Government will have to
strike a balance, to be fair to all
sections of the country, and in this
respect it may be as well to see
how other provinces in Canada are
represented., It might be noted
also that according to the latest
census figures British Columbia's
population has increased to
669,000.

Dr. Kiang Uses New Scientific Devices
Speaking to the weekly luncheon meeting of the Advertising Club of Montreal recently on "China Today"
with special reference to advertising practices, old and new, Dr. Kiang Kang-Hu, Professor of Chinese
Studies at McGill University, used a number of newly developed scientific devices, loaned by the Research
Products Department of the Northern Electric Company, Limited.
The inside photographs Bhown here were taken by the new photographic flash lamp which leaves no
smoke or odour and is therefore permitted for use in even the finest surroundings. And in order that the
speaker's voice might be easily audible without undue strain, a special small lapel type microphone recently
developed in the Bell Telephone Laboratories was provided for his use in conjunction with the Public Address
System (voice amplifiers). This microphone has been specially developed for use by lecturers who from the
nature of their address are obliged to turn away from their audience and point to a blackboard or map
and would, therefore, not be facing the ordinary microphone.

Ski Runners of the Canadian Rockies
With a field of activity unequalled the world over the new winter
sports association the Ski Runners of the Canadian Rockies,
is rapidly coming into prominence among skiers and winter sports
enthusiasts generally. The new organization is patterned largely
after the famous Trail Riders and its locale, unequalled for
scenery and facilities on this continent and probably without a
rival even in Europe, is Banff, in the heart of the Rockies, with
runB and trails varying from one to ten days in duration and
covering such world-known objectives as Mount Assiniboine,
Simpson Pass, Shadow Lake, Lake Louise, Ptarmigan Valley and
Pass, Bow Lakes and Pipestone Pass. Ski-ing over some of the^a
passes is in full swing as late as June when visitors are enjoving golf
and tennis, fishing and hiking, in the valleys below. But the spcrt begins in November eai.'.i year.
0 A thousand feet above Banff and about an hoiir out from the town is the ski lodge built on the pass
between Mounts Norquay and Stoney Squaw. From the club house runs radiate in all directions with rabins
and shelters at strategic points for rest and refreshment. There is a 50-metre Jump at Buffalo Park and
every year in February (this year February 7-14) a tournament h held where the pick of Canadian and outside jumpers compete. c

Copper Reduction Will
Not Greatly Affect
B.C.
All the Canadian copper producers are subscribers to the curtailment programme; but so far as
we can gather, the scale of actual
mining operations is not likely to
be greatly altered in consequence
certainly not to a degree seriously
to increase unemployment. In the
east, International Nickel, have
previously curtailed output practi
cally to the level prescribed by the
present agreement, is thus scarcely
affected by it; and the Noranda,
though now committed to reduce
copper production from the rate of
sixty million pounds annually to
forty million pounds, will by selective mining continue to maintain
an undiminished production of gold
and has, it is announced, no intention of reducing the number of its
employees. Iu this province, in
the case of the Granby, shipments
in terms of refined copper—will be
curtailed to 26i per cent, of rated
capacity, but this does not imply
that operations at Anyox will be
correspondingly restricted. Similarly, in order to keep costs at a
level whioh, which at the present
price of copper, enables the Britannia to continue operation, it is imperative that there should be no
decrease in tonnage production.
Hence operations will be continued
on practically  the same scale   as
heretofore, although actual ship
ments of concentrates to the smelter, will be limited to the agreed
quota.—The Miner, Vancouver.

winter sports differences in Switzerland, the recent visit to Canada
having been made in the light of
the "Buy British" campaign, and
for the encouragement of Univer-
