Death of Mrs. Ballentine
Occurs At Vancouver
The death occurred at Vancouver
on Sunday evening November 27th.
of Mrs. Mabel Edith McKinnon
Ballentine, wife of Mr. W. E. Ballentine of Anyox. Her death followed a long illness.
The late Mrs. Ballentine, who had
been ill for several months was taken to Vancouver last summer in
the hope of a possible recovery in
that city, she, however, failed to
recover and her death took place at
the home of her daughter, Mrs. B.
Thomson, 1190 Twelfth Avenue
West. All the members of the
family were present at the time of
her death.
She leaves to mourn her loss, a
husband, W. E. Ballentine, a son
Richard and daughter Gladys all of
Anyox; also two other daughters,
Mrs. B. Thomson of Vancouver and
Mrs. L. Grove of Los Angeles, Cal.
The funeral took place at Vancouver on  Wednesday last,  inter-
Inent   taking  place  at   Mountain
/iew Cemetery.
Deceased lived in Anyox for a
long time.    She was of a gentle
pind lovable disposition and her
aassing is deeply regretted by a
<iost of friends, whose sympathy is
'extended to members of the family

Before leaving they were each presented with useful mementos from
the store staff. Mr. C. P. Ashmore

presentations, and referred to their
long and valuable service, wishing
them, on behalf of their fellow employees, the best of health and good

ate James Smith Honored
By Canadian Legion
On Sunday last several members
fof the Anyox Branch of the Canadian Legion journeyed to the Cemetery to honor the memory of their
late comrade, James Smith, whose
body was recently found on Brooks
Island. Comrade the Rev. Evan
Baker read the service at the grave-
'Uide, and Comrade K. Ross Oatman
sounded the Last Post. Wreaths
were placed on the grave by the
I. O. D. E. and the Legion. James
Smith saw much active service in
the Great War, and was an ex-president of the Prince Rupert Branch
|of the Canadian Legion. His
memory will be honored and his
grave cared for by the Anyox Branch
| of the Canadian Legion.
Snooker Tourney at Beach
Pool Room Completed
On Tuesday last the two losers
in the semi-final of the Snooker
Tournament which has created such
interest at the Beach Pool Room
recently, played off for the third
prize. These players ' were W.
Hindmarsh and J. Pinckney, the
latter winning the match after a
close and exciting contest.
The final between W. Cavalier
and J. Elliott was played last Wed
nesday, W. Cavalier proving the
victor. The first two games of this
match were very close, but in the
last game Cavalier ran away from
his opponent, who however, had
some hard luck in the way of bad
positions. The two players were
evenly matched. This Snooker
tourney aroused so much interest
that it is possible that a further one
will be arranged.
An extreme high tide, accompanied by a strong wind played havoc
on the waterfront at Alice Arm on
Monday. Wind and waves combined, tore loose many houses built on
floats along the waterfront and deposited them among the more per
manent buildings throughout the
lower town.
Jack O'Hara's residence, which
has securely rested on a float on
Outlook Avenue East for a number
of years, was tossed up to First
Avenue and Victoria Streets, where
it will probably stay for some time.
Other buildings are stranded high
and dry waiting for another such
high tide to be floated off. Several
smaller buildings have been retrieved and replaced.
The high wind blowing up the
inlet raised the tide much higher
than was anticipated.

is large and roomy, and is made so
that both ends swing open completely, thus exposing the whole of the
interior to view and making easy
access to the interior. This roominess is perhaps its greatest charm,

Santa Claus never handed anyone a
lovelier gift) will be able to arrange

It has three bedrooms, a dining

open fire-place complete with firescreen, coal scuttle, and fire irons.
There is a grand piano and bench,
a Chesterfield suite, rugs and cushions.

Lode Gold Production Will
Near $4,000,000 This Year
Honourable W. A. MoKenzie,
Minister of Mines, has released for
issue Bulletin No. 3,1932, entitled
"Lode-Gold Developments in British Columbia." The bulletin suin-
now taking place in gold-mining
in the Province and gives useful
information calculated to further
stimulate this important branch of
the mining industry. Reports by
the Resident Engineers on their
respective districts are contained in
the bulletin, which is compiled by
John D. Galloway, Provincial Mineralogist.
It is estimated that the production of lode-gold this year will approximate $3,800,000, an increase
of 26% over that of 1931. From
all indications a considerably larger
gold output will be made in 1933.
While it is gratifying to have
ineieased production for the current year, the results of present
development plans are of even
greater importance. It is pointed
out that the Pioneer mine with increased mill capacity recently
brought in, will soon be the most
important gold mine in the Province, with a probable production
in 1933 approximating $2,000,000.
Premier mine at Stewart is .still
the largest gold producer, with
several years life still ahead of it.
The Bralorne Company brought
into production early this year the
old Lome mine situated near the
Pioneer. The 100-ton mill has operated steadily on ore averaging
about $16 a ton. Mine development has been energetically carried
on and has been successful in opening a new ore-body in the old 4th.
level. Continued profitable production is expected from this mine.
In 1931 a production of 9,698
ounces was made from the Reno
but the burning of the mill in
February, 1932, virtually put this
mine out of the list of shippers for
the rest of the year. Reconstruction plans, including reconditioning
of the old Motherlode mill (bought
by the Reno Company), new hydroelectric plant and aerial tramway,
are now well advanced and by the
end of the year steady production
will again commence. A substan-
tiantially increased output from
Reno will materialize in 1933.
Mine development has steadily
proceeded in 1932 with very satis
factory results.
The most important lode-gold
development of the year has been
the success attending the development operations of the Cariboo
Gold Quartz Company, Limited.
Commencing development fiveyears
ago, the upper showings were
partially developed until two years
when a long, low level cross cut
tunnel was started- This tunnel
is now in about half way to the
original objective but in this distance has crosscut 8 veins, most of
which give promise of minable
widths of good milling ore. In
effect, this is anew mine as distinct
from several promising veins lying
some 1,500 feet ahead of the present
face of the main tunnel, A 75-ton
mill now being constructed is expected to be into production in
December. While drifting and
raising on the veins has not yet
been carried out to block out any
important tonnages of ore, all
indications point to extensive ore
reserves. In 1933 a substantial
output of gold should come from
this property.
Besides the larger mines many
small shippers contributed to production and some of these may be
expected to expand in size. Development projects have been scattered over many parts of the Province and dormant gold properties
are being re-investigated and some
of them opened up.
Not the least important result of
the gold activity this year has been,
the employment provided. This
has been marked in certain areas.
In the Cariboo, as the result of both
lode and placer gold activities, the
district has experienced the busiest
year in several and all indications
point to more work in 1933. Gold-
mining also produced much employment in the Bridge River
district and in camps iu the Nelson
Mining Division.
Honourable Mr. McKenzie, in
addition to being Minister of Mines,
is also Minister of Labour aud as
such is, of course, keenly interested
in employment. As Minister of
Mines he has stimulated in every
possible way, gold-mining activity.
Commencing in 1929, under his
instructions, information has been
gathered on both plaoer and lode-
gold potentialities of the Province
and issued promptly in special
bulletins. Advice to prospectors
on likely areas and information
regarding promising properties for
development are contained in these
publications, which are free on application to the Department of
Plans   Winter  Trip  From
Alaska to Chicago
A prospector and trapper by
name of Williams has left Alaska
with nino husky dogs and 200
pounds of grub to make an overland
trip to Chicago. He will go as far
us Dawson and then rely on the
Canadian government for directions as to the route to take. He
wants to get to Chicago before the
snow goes in the spring.

Christmas, Trans-Atlantic Style  "
..  .. '•t^gftM&HH^HM^ —  1  Is'
Christmas, whether it be ashore or afloat, as
a season, looms almost aB largely on the
horizon of Steamship Companies as on
that of Santa Claus himself. Schedules muit be
planned months in advance for those who want
to cross the Atlantic for Christmas in either
direction, and above all, copies of the sailing
lists have to be sent to the old Saint in time for
him to plan his visits to the ships at sea. This
year, from the Canadian Bide the Canadian
Pacific liner "Duchess of Atholl" sails from
Saint John December 15th, thus giving her
passengers a chance to arrive in the Old
Country in time to hear the Waits and Carol
Singers on ChriBtmas Eve.
Looking for Canadian children Santa Claus will visit
the "Montrose", also of the Canadian Pacific, two days out
from Saint John, on her way to England.  It is strongly
suspected by those in the know that a scene such as that
shown above, which is a familiar feature of Christmas
festivities on all Canadian Pacific liners, will be enacted by
Chief Steward Leith, of the "Montrose", aided by cotton
whiskers and the spirit of Christmas. ,

Hon. J. W. Jones Still
Slashing Expenditures
On the question of its budget for
1933-34, the Government is silent,
as this is a subject first broached in
the House. Hon. J. W. Jones,
however, has let it be known that
lie intends to present a budget balanced even to the critical eyes of
the banks and the Opposition.
Expenditures a year ago were
about $30,000,000. This year they
were estimated at $24,688,000.
Next year they will be as olose to
$20,000,000 as the treasury can
induce all other departments to
make them. This may involve cuts
ranging from $300,000 to nearly
$1,000,000 in some of the more
costly departments
Some forms of provincial revenue
are recovering, notably lumber
receipts, which have pursued an
upward trend for three months
past. The fiscal picture is only
roughed in as yet, and no clear insight into what returns can be expected in other forms of receipt for
next year can be gleaned at this
date. On the whole revenues in
1933 34 may be a little better than
in 1932-33, it is said in circles close
to the ministry. This, however
will contribute to a balanced bud
