Granby Company Cuts
Wages 10 Per Cent
Continued Low Price of Copper Forces Reduction
Notices were posted in Anyox on
Monday morning that all wages
and'salaries of employees of the
Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting and Power Co. Ltd.
would be reduced 10 percent. The
reduction to become effective on
the following day, Tuesday, September 1st. Over 1000 men are
The decision to cut wages was
made following a meeting of all
department heads with Mr. Chas.
Bocking, president and general
manager of the company.
Naturally none of the employees
I of the Granby Co. felt very friendly toward a cut in wages. It was
E'not altogether unexpected. The
{.difficulties of the company in oper
lating the big plant at the present
Rtime was fully recognized, and
Lavery man displayed his co-oper-
j;ation by being at his post the
(following day.
The Granby Co. depreciates the
necessity of  reducing wages, but
ildiie to the unusual low price of
^copper and   a   stagnant   market,
fceven  at the present low price—
ft whioh is the lowest in history—they
had    no     other    choice,   except
• extreme   measures,   and   in   was
felt  that   the   present wage   cut
would entail far less hardship than
any extreme measure. The Granby
Co. appreciate the loyalty of their
employees  both in  the past and
during the present crisis and there
is no doubt they  will not forget
the  present loyalty of their em
ployees when happier times again
For many years wages at Anyox
have been ou the sliding scale.
a Wages rising and falling with the
price of copper; remaining stationary at 12 cents a pound and below
that figure. This arrangement
has given satisfaction, but it was
unbelievable that the price of cop
per could drop and maintain a
price level of 7j cents a pound as is
now the case,   y
The present low price of copper
has completely paralysed the copper industry of North and South
America. Several big copper
mines and smelters have closed
down in the United States and
many others are working extreme
ly short time. It is a relief for the
people of Anyox to know that the
present economic depression will
not affect them so much as it will
many other industrial oentres.

Anyox Win 2 Football
Games From Rupert
At Home
A crowd of nearly four hundred
witnessed the first of the two games
held at Anyox with Prince Rupert.
It was first-class football throughout the whole ninety minutes of
play, and the crowd were impartial
in their appreciation of the clever
football displayed.
Right at the start Rupert pressed
around the Anyox goal and looked
like scoring, but the local boys
broke away finally and found their
stride. A few minutes after, from
a corner-kick, Webster scored for
Rupert. After some fine open
play which was beautiful to watch
the Anyox forwards got possession
and managed to pass the stalwart
defence, MacConnachie passing' to
Horner, who scored. Soon after
this Horner got another from pretty
well the same recipe, and just
before half-time Colussi sent in a
lovely high shot which beat Hunter.
The third for Anyox was nicely
headed in by Buchanan from a shot
by Steve Peel which struck the
cross bar, and Horner notched the
fourth. Dickens, centre-forward
for Rupert, completed the trio for
his side, and Jim Dixon, from a
pass by MacConnachie, made it
five for the locals. Both sides
showed excellent judgment in passing and kicking, and the game was
full, of clever touches which delight
the fans.
Conditions were totally different
for the second game between Prince
Rupert and Anyox. Heavy rain
fell steadily, making the ball hard
to control and the ground very
treacherous. In spite of the bad
weather an excellent crowd attended, and were delighted by the fine
football played by the two teams.
There were several changes in the
Anyox line-up, Buntain, Donaldson,
Dyer, Field and Yglesias coming
into the team.
Horner, who starred as centre-
forward in the previous game,
played a brilliant game in goal.
Prince Rupert again opened the
scoring, from a high dropping shot
which was partially cleared by
Horner, who was then beaten by
the Prince Rupert inside-left. Fast
play ensued, both teams showing
strength in defence. Dixon equalized for Anyox, and shortly afterwards Buntain notched one from a
pass by MacConnachie. Dixon got
the third after some nice passing.
Tony Yglesias netted the fourth for
Anyox, and Jack Buntain completed
the scoring with a dazzling effort.
For the losers Dickens, Webster,
ind Egdecombe played splendid
throughout the game. Jack Evans
was the referee.
Mr.  Day and son were southbound passengers on Wednesday.
Plans Made at Meeting
For Holding First.
A public meeting was held at the
Kitsault House, Alice Arm on
Saturday evening for the purpose
of making arrangements for the
holding of the first exhibition of
garden produce in Alice Arm.
The meeting, was fairly well
attended and a mass of business
was transacted. E. Moss was
elected chairman of the meeting.
Following a short discussion it
was decided to appoint a committee to determine the number of each
variety of vegetables, etc. to be
exhibited. The comittee appointed
were: Wm. Stephen, H. Smith. E.
It was decided to enlarge the
scope of the Exhibition, and in
addition to vegetables exhibited
there will be flowers and fruit,
canned fruits and vegetables grown
in Alice Arm, home-made bread,
cakes and cookies, and potted house
plants, also wheat, barley, oats and
All exhibits must be in place not
later than 10 a.m. on Monday,
September 7th. so that the judges
will have ample time for their work.
The exhibition will open at 1 p.m.
The Kitsault House will be open
on Sunday afternoon for those who
wish to place their exhibits.
It was also decided that sports
be held during the afternoon,
followed by a dance in the evening.
A sports committee, consisting of
H. Fowler, T. W. Falconer and
J. Graham were appointed. Mrs.
H. F. Kergin and Mrs. J. Larson,
were appointed refreshment committee for the dance. A committee,
consisting of Mrs. H. F. Kergin
and Mr. Harry Smith was appointed to superintend the placing of exhibits.
It was the general opinion of the
meeting that no membership fee be
charged this year. All necessary
work would be done voluntary
and material would be loaned for
tables for exhibits. Mr. Harry
Smith, who first suggested the
holding of the exhibition, stated
that he would be responsible for the
placing of tables, etc. and that
everything would be ready.
At the time of going to press no
decision had been made in regard
to the judges. It is sincerely
hoped that judges from Anyox can
be procured however.
A list of the number of each
variety of vegetable and fruit
exhibited has been posted at the
Kitsault House.
It is hoped that everyone will
attend the Exhibition dance held
on Labor Day in T. W. Falconer's
hall, Admission is $1.00. Let's

Copper Situation Not So
Bad As Pictured States
An Authority
Reprinted from Financial News
Recovery in copper prices is of
such vital importance to the mining
industry of British Columbia that
the views of a well-posted authority
on the world copper situation are of
special interest to Western Canada.
It will mean a great deal to British
Columbia when major operations
such as Britannia and Granby are
able once more to operate at or
near full capacity, while improvement in copper prices would make
possible the bringing into production of Coast Copper on Vancouver
Island and allow development companies to finance tor renewed operations. In view of these circumstances it is encouraging to hear
from Philip W. Wilson mining engineer connected with American
Metal Company, that the statistical position of the metal does not
indicate the climb to improved price
levels will be so prolonged or so
difficult as might appear on the
Mr. Wilson, in an interview in
the Wall Street Journal, points out
that many times in the past the
outlook for copper has been as
gloomy as it appears today. Each
time, however, increased consumption brought new life and renewed
prosperity to the industry,   ,
Mr. Wilson brings out in the first
place that although stocks of refined
copper in North America increased
by 26,943 tons in July, the world
stocks of refined and blister copper
are equal to only 3.86 months
supply at the 1928-9 rate of consumption and to 5.32 months
supply at the average rate pf consumption the first half of 1931. He
points out that for 36 years copper
stocks have, averaged 3.84 months'
Among the comparisons which
the mining engineer makes with
previous copper market depressions
is the situation in 1886. Copper at
that time dropped to 10 cents per
pound and London economists predicted that the world would never
absorb the flood of cheap copper
coining on the market from Africa.
They proved to be wrong, consumption going up to such an extent
that the price in 1890 held in the
vicinity of 17 cents,
Again in the middle of '90's,
when additional supplies of copper
from Montana and elsewhere began
to cause supplies to accumulate the
price dropped to 9 cents and again
dire predictions were made.
Again increasing consumption
came to the rescue and in 1899
copper was selling at 17 cents and
averaged over 16 cents in 1900 and
1901. Several times during subsequent years the same experience
was repeated until today with the
price at a new historic low and 1
stocks at a  new historic  high  the J
utter ruin of the copper industry is
currently forecast.
"However, looking at the situation dispassionately, what are the
facts?" asks Mr. Wilson. "Visible
copper stocks are the highest they
have ever been but invisible copper
stocks, those in the warehouses and]
plants of fabricators and consumers
all over the world, probably are at
as low n level as they have ever
been. The moment that confidence
returns and the price stiffens and
turns upward in a convincing way,
consumers are sure to resume their
former policy of carry larger stocks
at their plants. Perhaps if they are
far-seeing they will take advantage
of the really absurdly low price of
the metal and over-stock.
"Any such return to a condition
of more nearly normal stocks in
consumers' hands would certainly
cause visible supplies to decrease
substantially. These published
figures, too, represent all physical
stocks of copper, including all held
by the refineries for the account of
consumers (and that held on consignment by the refiners for future
delivery). They are hence considerably larger than they would be if
all copper already sold and paid for
or held on consignment were deducted "
Mr. Wilson goes on to say that
in the last three depressions it took
only two or three years after the
crisis had passed foi increasing
consumption to assert itself and
reduce stocks to their proper relationship to consumption. If production has not been reduced
forcibly and sufficiently through
voluntary curtailment, the result
has been just as effectively though
more painfully attained through the
functioning of the inexorable law of
supply and demand, which has carried the price down to a point where
enough high cost production has
been forced out of the picture to
assure the return .to normal conditions.
Mr. Wilson summarizes his conclusions as follows:
"If, as some assert, the world's
consumption of copper has passed
its zenith and the curve from now
on either slopes downward or at
best continues horizontally, then
the outlook, with new production in
sight, is indeed hopeless.
"If on the other hand, the countries of the world emerge from this
as they have done from past depressions and if the five per cent,
and six per cent, cumulative annual
increase in copper consumption
again asserts itself as there is every
reason to believe it will, then the
copper industry has every right to
anticipate in the future prosperity
comparable with any that it has
enjoyed in the past."
