The Trojans Win From
Vandals In Thrilling
To be tied 14 all at half time, to
run almost neck and neck for points
in the second half, and to find the
Trojans winners by a score of 40 to
35, when the final whistle blew—
such was the course of the hoop
game between the Trojans and Vandals in the first Senior A fixture
of the second half of the league,
played on Monday the 7th.
It was tip course of true love, nor
did it run smoothly. Each side was
out to win and there was more than
an inclination to roughness at times
nevertheless, it was a great battle,
dotted with brilliant plays.
Fred Calderoni, who was in rare
form, ihrew the ball over his head
for a basket, and again made a
beautiful shot from midfield without
stopping to aim. J. Gillies, for the
Trojans, had his eye trained on the
basket so that he could scarcely go
wrong, while his brother Bud got
in some lovely long shots. Speed
and accurate passing featured the
tussle, although the three man combination on the Mine team, usually
so effective, did not click. Kulai
was not in his best form and missed
some nice ehances. Woodman and
Gourlay each played a fine game,
while Tony Calderoni never tired.
For the winners W. Shields and
F. Gordon were at their best and
McDonald was strong at guard.
Players from both teams were
chased to the showers during the
second half.
The game was well handled by
referee L. Gillies, who had an accurate and impartial eye.
The teams: Vandals, A. Calderoni 12, F. Calderoni 17, Kulai 1,
Woodman 2, Gourlay 3, Saaman,
Trojans: Bud Gillies 16, J. Gillies
13, H. Dresser 3, F. Gordon 6, W.
Shields 1, McDonald 1.

Anyox   Serbians  Celebrate
Their National Christmas
Monday, January 7th. was the
National Christmas Feast of the
Serbians, and the people of that
oountry who reside at Anyox celebrated the event in right royal
style. The depression, or the possible closing down of the mine,
mattered not at all. Christmas
was held with all the lavishness
and trimmings for which this
sturdy race is noted, there being
no lack of good cheer and hearty
fare. A large number of guests
were entertained at the various
homes of these hospitable people,
and there was merrymaking at
each one.

Bonanza Ships Steady Supply
Of Ore To Mill
Day in and day out, a steady
stream of ore buckets passes along
the aerial tramway between Bonanza and the ore bins at the crush
ing plant. So regularly and
constantly do these buckets come
and go that wo scarcely notice them.
Each one will carry about half a
ton of ore, and an average of 300
tons is brought over daily. The
quantity thus handled in a thirty
day month is around 9000 tons.

Electrical Development
Increased Copper Sales
In the early part of the nineteenth century came that increasing interest in electrical matters
that within a few years laid the
foundations of the wonderful age
of electricity, and which also opened up a field where copper was a
vital necessity. Without copper
progress would have been very
slow, even if investigation of electrical phenomena could have been
commenced without it, for the first
experimenters relied entirely upon
copper, one of the first batteries using 320 square feet of copper sheet.
Signalling, telegraphy, aud the
submarine cable came shortly, all
bringing a market for millions of
feet of oopper wire every year.
The development of the electrical
machine, after Faraday's first machine iu 1831, necessitated the production of large quantities of pure
copper; a machine built in 1866
used 576 pounds of copper strip on
the armature. The introduction
in recent years of the National
Grid system indicates that every
field for copper in the electrical industry has not yet been exhausted;
the phosphor-bronze cables spanning the river Thames at Dagen-
liam consist of continuous lengths
of 6,400 feet, weighing six tons.
One sphere in whioh copper has
always occupied an important place
is architecture, its use ranging from
Sumerian metal mosaic work of
4,000 B. C, through the heavy
copper-faced doors of the Middle
Ages, to railings and lampstauds
today. Copper roofs, conduits
lightning conductors, weather-
vanes and grilles are all in general
use. Other modern uses include
shipbuilding (the propeller of the
"Queen Mary" is solid bronze,)
railway and general engineering
(the firebox of the L. N. E. R. engine "Cock-of-the-North" is copper)
and the chemical industries (welded
tanks of 50,000 gallons capacity
have been made.)

Newspaper Advertising Is
Big Selling Power
Beyond all question the most
potent creator of business demands
in Canada is the newspaper advertisement. Millions upon millions
of dollars are expended every day
in the stores of the Dominion because well written advertisements
have directed public attention to
convenient, becoming, attractive,
useful, ornamental and suitable
merchandise. The sale of all necessities, all luxuries, all indulgences, is more powerfully stimulated by the newspaper advertisement
than by any other agency. Only
hunger, cold and nakedness are
comparable to the advertisement
as a promoter of sales—and even
purchases of food, fuel and clothing
are directed more largely by the
business columns of the press than
bv any other influence except immediate necessity.
The largest stores in our greatest
cities have been built up by their
advertising, their persistent and
clever invitation to the public, in
the press to share in their bargains.
Imagine what would happen to
daily sales of merchandise, real
estate, theatre tickets, insurance,
books and other things, if newspaper advertisements were prohibited by law.for six months. It is
not exaggeration to say that they
would drop 50 per cent.
Why Prohibit Mining Brokers
On Boards of Directors
There's a movement in British
Columbia to prohibit brokers from
serving as directors of the companies whose shares they aid in distributing. The theory may be all
right, but it isn't practical. As
long as the machinery for financing-
business remains in its present imperfect state, it probably will be
beneficial in most instances to have
some member of the underwriting
organization sit on the board of any
company which is appealing to the
public for funds. The ideal direct
orate of a mining company, for example, would contain at least one
mining engineer, at least one attorney familiar with mining law, at
least one practical financier, at
least one successful business exec
utive with a rudimentary knowledge
of actual mining, and at least one
"watchdog of the treasury" with
some knowledge of accounting or
bookkeeping and a desire to see a
cent's value tor each cent spent,—

New Arrival At Alice Arm
Seldom has the Herald been in
error in reporting the arrival of all
visitors to the camp. An exception
can be taken in the case of A. Cali-
fornica, but since this party will be
with us for some time this can be
overlooked. This party, or to give
him his full name of "Mr." Auto-
grapa Californica, has made himself
known to most of us, and especially
the gardeners, as he is an admirer
of green growing things. In case
you do not recall meeting him, if
you will think back a few month:
to the day you were digging in
your garden, and turned up some
small reddish capsule like objects)
better than an inch long and just
able to wriggle a little. That was
a Californica in his pupa stage. A
moth hatched from one of these
pupa which was carried indoors,
was sent to the university at Point
Grey, with the following comment
This moth  is  Autographa  Coli
fornica,  the false Alfalfa Looper
It is one of the cutworm  moths
whose favorite food is white  clover
leaves.       This   moth   has spread
greatly this year and their are com
plaints    from    many  parts  of  the
province,  where  it was previously
unknown.    The eggs are usually
laid in the fall  and  remain  in  the
soil,    or   attached   to the  plants
during the winter.    It may  remain
in the pupa stage over winter when
the cold weather comes on early.

Canada Makes Progress Says Beatty
C.P.R. President Reviews Past Year and Finds Evidence of
Permanent Economic Improvement in Advances so far
made—Predicts Canadian Wheat as Best in the
World will find Steady Market.
li. W. BKATTV.K.C.
Chairman and President,
Cuiiatliall I'ai-ifiic Ry.
r7,IIE course of our recovery
I from the economic catastrophe which swept over the
world in 1929 and 1930 has beau
markedly different from that of
any of tne previous cases of business expansion in this country.
This time we seem to be experiencing a process of slow rebuilding, and, as far as I can see, one
of permanent re-adjustment. of
our economic activities to conditions 'which have radically and
permanently changed. What we
are today experiencing is a
p r o c e s ii of
steady, and I
hope permanent growth.
This to my
mind would be
an entirely
normal result
of the causes
which led to
the great collapse of Canadian business.
Tlie boom conditions which
'followed a
temporary depression after the Armistice were,
as far as Canada is concerned,
chiefly the result of forces and
conditions in other countries. Actually our productive boom resulted from tangible demand for
Canadian products, and from conditions in other countries which
directed a flow of capital into
Canadian development. Equally
the economio collapse ln Canada
resulted chiefly from forces operating In other countries.
Nothing is more important ln
our economic life than our great
exporting industries. In the case
of wheat I have never accepted
the alarmist views which have
bean freely expressed. The world
surplus stocks, produced partly
by active «ncouragement of production in many importing countries, and partly by a series of
unusually favourable seasons In
Europe, seem to be needed to
meet the marked shrinkage in
production in 1&34. While complete recovery of world commerce
in wheat must depend on some
limitation of excessive economic
nationalism, on greater stability
of monetary exchange, and on increase in the to,tal volume of
other forms of world commerce,
I see no reason to believe that
Canadian wheat, the best iu the
world, sold at fair prices, will not
find a steady market.
Other primary products, such
as minerals, lumber, and bacon
are being exported in increased
volume and at better prices, largely owing to the Imperial trade
agreements of 1932, and tlie newsprint industry shows clear sign of
It is to bo regretted that the
past few years have seen farther
increase in the debt of the Dominion,* the Provinces and many
municipalities. Much of our public debt has been incurred for
purposes obviously legitimate as
part of the ordinary government
of the country, but much has resulted from experiments  in the
direction of governmental participation in business. Regrettable
as is the loss occasioned by errors
on the part of private enterprise,
this type of loss is corrected by
a reduction in the income and
capital holdings of those who
finance the enterprises. An unwise investment by a public body
means a permanent charge on tho
tax-payers. I recommend this
thought to those who believe that
further expansion of governmental activities is the best
method of protecting the ordinary
citizen .from exploitation by capitalists,' In actual fact the safest
policy for great capitalists is al:
present to buy securities issued
by public bodies and to leave the
chance of loss to be carried by the
mass taxpayers.
Throughout the past year the
matter of the country's railway
problem has received an increasing amount of public attention,
and I am convinced that proposals
for Its solution along the lines of
unified management for the two
great companies have made decided progress. In all directions
are observable a greater willingness on the part of the public to
enter upon an unprejudiced consideration of the case, and even
among those classes whose interests might at first glance seem to
be threatened by any such proposals, I discover a growing desire to examine their possibilities
and to find out If they really are
as dangerous as those who early
rushed into print to attack them
would seem to believe, This is
all to the good. If unified management will not stand up under
the most searching criticism, obviously, it should not go forward.
But the criticism should be fair
and honest and it should be based
upon a fairly sound understanding of railway economics and not
upon personal Interest or prejudice. I say nothing less than the
truth when I affirm that most of
the criticism that has come out
so far will not stand up before
any one or even two or three of
the above tests. I shall not further deal with the matter here,
except to say that I can see no
other way than unified railway
management in which the country
can put a stop to the continual
cumulative wastage of vast sums
of money and can safeguard the
future of both railways-while adequately preserving the property
rights of the Canadian people in
the Canadian National, and those
of the shareholders of the Canadian Pacific. In a word this is my
proposal for unified management
—it is a partnership between public ownership and private ownership with the added advantage of
private operation free from political control.
Both Canadian Railway systems
as well as the railways of almost
every modern nation, have suffered to some extent from the
growth of highway transportation. The general use of privately owned motor cars, and an increasing amount, of pleasure
travel in prosperous times, have
led to the contraction of a great
network   of   modern   highways,
which in turn have been used as
the right of way for a great number of freight vehicles. To a
great extent the operations of
these vehicles and their policy in
setting their charges, have not
been subjected to the same close
supervision which public authorities have long given to railway
operations and tariffs. In this
case also public opinion is pressing for better handling of the
situation. The railways do not
question the advisability of building good roads, or of permitting
them to be used for commercial
transportation, but the perfection
of the present attempts to proper
control of this operation will, in
my opinion, return to the railways
at least some of tho business
takeii from them by highway
transport and place both highway
and rail transportation on a
sounder1 basis.
It is also interesting to note a
growing public sentiment tn the
direction of demanding some contribution to the upkeep of our
great and costly Inland waterway
system from those who use them
—especially in the case of ships
of foreign registry.
With every correction of these
special cases of unfair competition,
the Company must depend chiefly
for a restoration of its normal
business on a recovery of Canadian prosperity In general. The
outlook In that respect Is comforting. The very careful studies
prepared by the Dominion Bureau
of Statistics Indicate a condition
far from as alarming as some authorities would make it.
In this great and scantily populated country we should not, however, be talking only of recovery.
Canada should look forward to
expansion in every direction. To
my mind the policies needed to
Insure this are very simple. I
should list them as: scrupulous
care to prevent the debts of public
bodies and resulting destructive
taxation from any further increase; concentration of our
efforts both In public policy and
private business on the increase
both in volume and prosperity of
our primary Industries — especially agriculture; public and
private business policies looking
to increase the population of Canada — especially in the agricultural areas; and, as I have repeatedly said, an immediate correction of the burdensome and
costly duplication of transportation facilities.
It appears to me that we can
look back on 1934 with some contentment, as a year during which
we found that the world was not
ending, and that by industry and
thrift nations and individuals
could still prosper. What Interests me more is that I believe we
can look forward to 1935 and successive years with confidence that
under Providence we shall see in
them a period when Canada will
revive that faith in her future
which too many of us seemed to
lose, and that we shall again
come to realize that all that is
wanted to set this country on a
forward path of progress are such
simple virtues as energy, honesty,
and ordinary common sense.

soore after a hectic game which
was full of excitement for the fans.
They won in spite of many misses
at the basket, hut these were possibly due to lack of practice over
the holiday season, Sterling work
by the Dresser sisters, and A, Gar-
rick at guard won the day for the
hard-working girls in green.
Spooks played a nice passing
game and were dangerous at all
times, their triangle team of Salmon, Morris and Eve requiring
close checking, E. Morris was
sent to the showers half-way
through'the second half after playing a very fast and heady game.
Future games between those two
teams will lie worth watching.

Consolidated Co. Get Much
Ore From Leasers
Consolidated Mining & Smelting
Company in tbe first 15 days of
November received 2490 tons of ore
from leasing operations on mines
owned by the company. 'Phis is at
a rate considerably higher than
that for October. Forty-seven
different leasing operations were
represented in the shipments, which
included 45 cars of ore averaging
47 tons to the car. Most of the
leasing operations are in the old
original mines of the company on
Red Mountain, at Rossland, B. C.
Four new leases have been opened
since this record was completed.
It is officially estimated that the
off-shore lumber shipments from
British Columbia have approximated 850 million feet, board measure,
in 1934, as compared with 662,500,-
000 feet b. in, in 1935. The former peak year was in 1929 when 801
million feet were exported.

33,117,314 Pieces is Long Laundry List
A large number of people attended the Memorial Service which
was held at Christ Church, Anyox
on Sunday evening December b'th.
for the late Mrs. F. Watson, whose
death occurred at the Anyox Hospital on Friday the 4th. The
service was conducted by Rev.
Alfred Abraham, who in tne course
of his address, dwelt on the virtues
of the departed, and the great respect in which she was held. The
servioe was most impressive
throughout. A short servioe was
also held in the Church at 9 am.
on Monday.
The body was conveyed to Van-
[•mtvet" on the Steamship' Catala. a
large number of people being present at the dock to pay their last
respects. Several floral tributes
accompanied   the casket.
Can you imagine a bewildered
Chinaman trying to total a
laundry list of 33,117,314 pieces?
But there is one like that. It is
the total of washing done
by and for the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company in 1930, in Canada,
including hotels and bungalow - camps; sleeping
and dining car service,
(which also operates station restaurants), and
the British Columbia
Coast boat service. If
one stopped to sit down
and figure out the gallons of water and bars
of soap required for these
operations, the results
might be even more astounding.
Tbe hotel, department
owns 789,821 pieces of
linen; the dining and
sleeping car, service
some 1,500,000 and the
British Columbia steamships another, 247,000,
making a grand total of,
2,536,821 pieces. These
include all "flat-pieces",
such as table - cloths,
sheets, napkins, towels,
pillow - cases, etc; the
white coats worn by the
company's   servants   in
the various departments, and, in
the hotels, a certain amount of
laundry, done for guests. In the
hotels, too, blankets, bed-spreads,
rugs, and so forth must
be considered. Every
piece of laundry handled
becomes a laundry-piece
each time it appears tn
the wash. Thus a single
table-napkin may be a
laundry-piece over and
over again, according to
the supply of linen needed and available.
The picture shows a
battery of washing machines ln tbe laundry of
the Royal York Hotel,
Toronto, the largest hotel in the British Empire.
Similar equipment in the
great chain of Canadian
Pacific Railway hotels
throughout Canada handles the great laundry
list in various centres,
with the assistance, in
certain districts, of laundries outside the company's service. But the
Standard maintained is
the same everywhere,
Immaculate cleanliness
being the motto from
coast to coast, both
ashore and afloat
Ontario Outstrips Provinces
In Gold Production
Ontario is far the most important producer of gold in the Dominion, although, while the history of
gold mining in this province dates
back as far as 1866, it was not until after the discovery of the Porcupine camp in 1908 that gold mining
became established as a profitable
industry, from the great rock region of Northern Ontario, which
was once regarded as worthless
wilderness, gold to the value of
$501,000,000 had been recovered
up to the end of 1933. Up until
1891 the total of all mineral production of Ontario amounted in value
to less than live million dollars and
at the end of 1933 it had reached a
total value of $2,014,000,000.
This flood of wealth pouring out
of a country which for many years
was regarded as of little value had
given added impel us lo the development of the northern part of
Ontario, and has kept the province
in a prominent position among the
gold producers of the world.
Annual meeting of the B. C. Silver Mines Ltd., was entirely formal nothing new being revealed regarding progress of negotiations
with Premier Gold with regard to
operation of the property. It is
understood that these negotiations
are being carried on directly between the New York principals in
Premier Gold and the London controlling interests of B, C, Silver.
C. A. Banks, formerly president
and managing-director of B. C. Silver, is no longer on the board.
The directors are G. Bruce Duncan,
H. L. Hunt and H. A. Gould; all of
