Re-Opening of Basket-
Bali Attracts Good
Crowd
After the temporary suspension
of the game, due to conditions arising from the recent shut-down of
the plant, local basketeers donned
shirts and shorts on Monday evening last and played two senior men's
games. A good crowd was on
hand. Each team included a new
comer to the camp and this fact
lent added interest to the evening's
sport.
The first tilt was between the
Vandals and the Mechanics, the
former winning 26-15. This score
however, does not indicate the comparative merits of the teams, as the
machinists had hard luck in their
arithmetic. Time and time again
Buntain, usually so accurate, missed
the hoop. The miners, despite close
checking, ran up the score in a
steady manner. Walmsley was replaced by R. Lee, who showed up
very favorably.
On the Mechanics' squad B.
Gourlay was the new player, giving
an excellent account of himself.
The teams: Mechanics: Buntain 8,
Mikeli 4, F. Dodsworth,   L. Gillies
2, C. Dresser 1, B. Gourlay.    Vandals: T. Calderoni 16, F. Calderoni
3, G. Anderson 1,   H. Jack 4,  R.
Lee 2.
The fans were treated to a real
thrill in the game between the Concentrator and the High School,
when two sessions of overtime had
to be played, before the issue was
decided. The Students had acquired a southpaw named Maclnnes,
and were determined to show a
credit balance when the melee was
over. To this end, they played
sterling basketball all the way and
had the fans working overtime for
them as well.
When time was called the score
was 24 all; the first session of overtime made it 26 all; and in the last
spasm the Concentrator boys, playing one man short, secured the coveted basket which won them the
game and placed them at the top of
the league. The hectic battle was
well handled by referee N. Youngs.
The scholars played a fast and
brilliant game, their new man, Maclnnes, proving a real acquisition to
the team. Bud Gillies made some
spectacular field shots and W.
Shields played like a veteran.
Blondy Dodd was perhaps the star
for the winners and G. M. Heinekey
a newcomer, is tricky and versatile.

Nineteen years ago on Friday next, March 17th. the first furnace of the Granby Co.
was blown in and the manufacturing of copper commenced. Since that auspicious
occasion the big mine, and ore reducing plant has carried on almost uninterruptedly
producing hundreds of millions of pounds of copper; resulting in the expenditure of
millions of dollars for wages and supplies and the regular employment of over 1,000
men. The above picture shows a scene on the Anyox waterfront, when operations
are carried on at full capacity.

Scouts Honor Birthday
Of Baden Powell
The Boy Scouts of Anyox recently
celebrated the seventy-sixth birthday of the Chief Scout and Founder
of the movement, Lord Baden
Powell of Gillwell. Scout James
Brunton was invested arid presented
with his Tenderfoot Badge, and
games which were under the leadership of Patrol Leader John Dodsworth, were greatly enjoyed.
Later in the evening a bean supper was served. The evening was
brought to a close with cheers for
the Chief, a hearty vote of thanks
to Mrs. Gale for the splendid feed
provided, and a renewal by each
member of his Scout Promise.
A. C. L. Tennis Dance Was
Well Patronized
With the object of providing enjoyment for the Community and
especially the new residents of the
camp, the Anyox Community League held a dance in the gymnasium
on Wednesday last, there being a
large attendance. The Mine Branch
of the League, with its usual enthusiasm, lent its hearty co-operation in the affair.
The dance was entirely free for
everybody. This is the second occasion during the present season
that the A. C. L. have held a dance
for which there was no charge and
needless to say it was greatly appreciated. The music was provided
by the Merrymakers' Orchestra and
was much enjoyed, an excellent
supper was also provided.

Mr. Alex. Donaldson Passes
Away At Vancouver
Mr. Alex. Donaldson, who left
Anyox about three weeks ago for
Vancouver, passlU away at the
Anyox General Hospital on Tuesday afternoon last.
The late Mr. Donaldson, who
was about forty years of age, was
mine foreman at the Hidden Creek
mine. For some time he had suffered from an ulcerated stomach,
and sought recovery in Vancouver.
While there he developed pneumonia, followed by peritonitis, which
resulted in bis death. He was a
member of Anyox Lodge A. F. &
A.M.
Several beautiful floral tributes
were sent by friends of the. deceased at Anyox to Vancouver for the
funeral, one of which was from the
residents of the Mine.
Legislature  May   Prorogue
Before Easter
There is every indication that the
Legislature will rise before the Easter Holiday and it is possible that
dissolution may take place before
that time. Whether Mr. Bruhn
will join W. J. Bowser's union faction or lead one of his own, has not
been made clear. The position of
Premier Tolmie is also uncertain.
The work of the session is being
expedited, both sides realizing that
the sooner the present farce is over,
the better for the province.
The Anyox Concert Orchestra
will resume rehearsals on Sunday
evening in the Recreation Hall, and
all members are urged to be present. *   ;""
Annual Meeting of Golf

183 was a record one, it is hoped
that fully this number will join the
ranks this year.
Many members have taken advantage of the golf classes which
have been held during the winter,
and are looking forward to the
opening of the season, which will
take place as soon as the course is
clear of snow.

Safety First Being Preached
And Practised
Every care is being taken to ensure the safety of the workers at the
Mine. Safety First meetings for
all workers are being held and these
are arranged so that men on the
different shifts can attend. In addition to the regular safety measures
which are observed at the mine,
special regulations have been made
to suit the new conditions, and to
safeguard the welfare of those who
may be unfamiliar with the mine.
The efforts being made for their
safety are much appreciated by all

Business throughout the world
is still in a state of chaos and will
no doubt continue so until the leaders of every nation meet and resolve to end il. The depression
could be ended in a few months if
the statesmen of the world would
rise above domestic politics and
attend an international conference
with a give and take attitude.
For the past three years, the politicians of almost every nation have
been swayed by party politics.
They are afraid to make any worthwhile concessions that will spoil
their chances of re-election to
power. The result has been that
every nation, has, up to the present,
tried to get an advantage over the
other so that the political power of
the government is enhanced in their
own country. Gradually, each
country is learning that this policy
is suicidal. When business is bad
in one big country, or continent, it
is felt throughout the world.
Everyone suffers. It is high time
that national jealousies, fears, and
hatreds were forgotten and that a
start was made towards an era of
international goodwill. Many
statesmen of the world and religious
leaders of all denominations, have
publicly stated, thai, in their opinion, if the present depression continues for another two years an upheaval among the masses will
result and our present form of government and civilization will pass
away. Bold words, but it has
happened before and can happen
again. Up to the present the governments of the world have waited
for the depression to automatically
pass away. Instead of passing it
is getting worse. It will, however,
come to an end, and the result of
the ending depends entirely upon
the remedies applied.
Canadian Coke Makejs-JIs*
Canadian   Exports  Of
Copper Declines
During the month of January,
exports of raw and manufactured
copper Irom Canada were less than
half the total of a year ago. Combined shipments during the month
were 15,001,400 pounds as compared with 80,002,800 pounds in the
same month of 1032. Copper in
ore. etc., was 1,01)5.500 pounds,
against 5,001,(100, ill blister, etc..
230,700 pounds against 3,202,400
and in scrap form 245,500 pounds
against 1,318,700 pounds. Turning to tlie manufactured categories,
one rinds that whereas a year ago,
copper in the form of bars, rods,
etc, were shipped to an aggregate'
of 26,390.100 pounds, this year no
exports occurred under that classification. On the other hand, shipments of 12,100,500 pounds were
ingot and similar forms, two classifications that were not specified a
year ago. The statistics are interesting from the angle of such raw
producers as Noranda, International Nickel and Falconbridge Nickel
and the refineries operating in
conjunction with them, as well as
from the point of view of such
manufacturers as Canadian Wire
& Cable and the Phillips Electrical
Works.

Of the 1,905,000 short tons produced that year, about 1,833,000

Metal Prices Will Not
Drop Lower
There is welcome news for Brit
ish Columbia in tlie report that no
less an authority than Scott Turner,
director of the U. S, Bureau ol
Mines told the American Institute
of Mining and Metallurgical Engi
neers recently his belief that metals
have reached the bottom of their
depression and are ready for a rise.
Metals, he said, dropped iu production in the past three years to
21% of their annual average for the
previous live years. Pig iron, copper and lead went down to 1898
and 1899 levels. He based his
view that price levels were unlikely to go lower in 1933 on the fact
that during 1932 the average price
mineral commodities became
Jady while the decline in the genii average of all commodities
ntinued. In 1930 and 1931
ices of minerals and of all com-
ditie6 were virtually parallel.
''There is no reason for anticipating more than temporary continuance of the present low level of
mineral consumption,'! lie said.

BRITISH   COLUMBIA
Among the Canadian Provinces, British Columbia is the
leading producer of Silver, Lead and Zinc
In this Province, about 45 per cent, of Canada's Silver,
97 per cent, of the Lead and 93 per cent, of the Zinc are
produced.
British Columbia has produced approximately $1,300,000,-
000 worth of minerals.
About 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing
lands are open for prospecting.
Practically every mineral known to be found on the
Continent occurs to some extent in British Columbia

HP he process of snatching  the laurels  from the
process
brows of California is going right on in Canada.
"Our Lady of the Snows" is belying her name in the
mild climate of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Announcement has been made recently that the
second annual Empress Hotel mid-winter golf tournament at the Colwood course, Victoria, will be held
irom February 17 to 23 inclusive, a time -when the
country north of the 49th parallel is popularly supposed to be feet deep in enow. Photographs included
in above lay-out ■will show this popular belief to be a
fallacy as far as the Victoria course is concerned.
The mid-winter tournament was placed in the
Canadian sport calendar last February under the
auspices of the Canadian Pacific Railway and proved
a great success. The Vxtoria fixture is a purely
amateur affair, handicap, of course, open to men
and women, competing in their own sections. The
main trophy is the E. W. Beatty challenge cup, at
present held by T, L. Swan and Mrs. Hew Paterson,
of Victoria, although a large list of other prizes is
being posted. The competition is open to all Victoria
clubs and also to any visitors in that city, and in
view of the size of the entry list all links in the
vicinity of the city will be pressed into service.
WITH THE TRAIL RIDERS
East is East and
West is West,
but men ride wherever the sun shines
and the Trail Riders
of the Canadian
Rockies, with a membership which girdles
the globe, are creating widespread interest with their plans
for their 1932 expedition from Banff to
Mount Assiniboine,
through some of the
most beautiful country In the great mountains from which they take
their name. The famous peak, with its many adjoining lakes and valleys, was the focal point of the
1927 trail ride and thiB year's trip, starting on July
29, will follow generally the sarrc lines, with nightB
spent in camp, according to the best traditions ot
the Order. Ample time will be given for exploring
the territory traversed, the ride ocrupyinK five days
and traversing Brewster and Allenby Creeks; Assiniboine Pass and the shores of Lake Magog to the
great mountain, which is the objective of the riders.
Return will be made through the Valley of the
Rocks; the Golden  Valley;  Citadel  Pass and so
through Sunshine Camp to Banff once mon. Tht
pictures shown above are distinctly interesting and
show Lt. Col. Phil Moore, president of the Trail
Riders, and Mrs. Moore, on camel-back at tht
Pyramids, during the world-cruise of the Canadian
Pacific liner "Kmpress of Britain", in strong contrast
to the cowboy viewing Mount Assiniboine, where
this year's trail ride leads. Inset is H. M. King
Prajadhipok of Siam, who proved an enthudaatie
trail rider during his visit to Canada last summer.
Below, two fair bathers are seen setting out from one
of the cabins at Assiniboine Camp.

THE PICTURES
"BIRD OF PARADISE"
SATURDAY, MARCH 11
Delores Del Rio, Joel McRae, John
Halllday, Skeens Gallagher
This picture is full of heart touching drama and touching romance.
And there is dignity and beauty in
every line of it. The love romance
of a white man for a native girl
who has saved his life—their living
on a beautiful island sanctuary—a
volcano which erupts and brings
scenes packed with sensational
spectacle. The boy's heroic efforts
to save his woman, the actions of
the natives, and the girl's final sac
rifice make a picture of beauty and
brilliance, of passion and sweetness.
You'll enjoy this exotic production
on Saturday.

S. M. Newton Passes Away
At Vancouver
"The Night of June 13"
TUESDAY, MARCH  Hth.
Clive Brook, and Lila Lee head
the cast of this fine drama of intrigue in a large city suburb. The
story concerns the manner in which
a man on trial for the murder of his
wife—a crime of which he is innocent—is nearly convicted on evidence of his neighbours, who lie to
keep secret petty delinquencies of
their own.
What happened between 5.09 and
6.19 on the night of June 13, will be
seen on Tuesday evening next.
The picture is loaded with excitement and suspense, and of course,
the acting is of the highest quality.
Charlie Ruggles, Gene Raymond,
Frances Dee, Mary Boland and
others are in this exceptional cast.
F. A. Roehm left on Monday for
a visit to Prince Rupert.
Mrs. C. McLachlan and Miss A.
McLachlan arrived home on Monday from Vancouver.
Mr. McRostie returned on Monday from a visit to the south.
Twenty-seven mine workers arrived on Sunday evening last on the
steamship Prince John, which docked about 9 o'clock.
Four mine workers arrived on
Monday on the steamship Catala.
Ten more workers arrived on the
steamship Prince Rupert on Wednesday from Vancouver.
Mrs. James Boyd returned on
Wednesday from a holiday visit to
Vancouver.
R. Shewin and George Dyer left
on Wednesday for Vancouver.
Victor Bell, who suffered injuries
to his face in an accident at the
Mine on Friday the 3rd. was taken
to Vancouver on Wednesday for
special treatment. He was accompanied by Mr. Jack Carr. Bell has
been employed at the Mine for
about three years.
A recent arrival at Anyox was
Mr. Len Goedblood, who was formerly on the staff at the Assay Office.
Since leaving here Len has worked
at Nelson, and also in the Vancouver district. His wife was formerly
Miss Patrick, of the nursing staff at
the Anyox Hospital. They have a
baby daughter a year old.
BIRTH AT ANYOX
Born to Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas
Kozy, at the Anyox General Hospital, on Tuesday, March 7th. a son.
Residents of Prince Rupert in the
early days will be sorry to learn
that S. M. Newton, prominent citizen of that town until a few years
ago, and publisher of the Evening
Umpire, passed away at Vancouver
during the early part of the week.
The late Mr. Newton was eight
times mayor of Prince Rupert. In
politics he was purely independent
and was a fearless fighter and flayed his opponents unmercifully.
During the early days of the town,
he was a leading figure in all political and municipal contests. Often
he was victorious, but when defeated he was never depressed and
carried on until victory again crowned his endeavors.
