Elks Defeat Vandals In
Fast Basketball
A good crowd was on hand at
the Gym. on Monday evening last
and witnessed four good tussles of
baskethall. A tight go between
Trojans Jnr. and the Pirates resulted in a narrow win by the
former of 9-8. The youngsters put
up a good game and showed an
excellent knowledge of the rules.
The teams: Pirates: R. Dresser
4, A. Wardrope 2, R. O'Neill 2.
VV. Uhich, B. McMaster, J. Mo-
Master, Rudland. Trojans Jnr
N. McDonald 4, B. Kent 5, Geo.
Kent, H. Dodsworth, J. Varnes.
Rovers struck a hard snag in the
Senior B gamei ooming out on the
short end of a 36-9 score. They
stuck to it gamely however, despite
the odds against them. The teams
Rovers, Thompson, Summers 5,
Flye 2, Kergin 5, Cloke. Foundry
Patrick 8, Scott 19. Church 7
Hamilton 2, Parsons, Deeth. Three
players in this game, reached the
showers in good time; viz, Kergin
Patrick and Hamilton.
The Mine Girls had an off night,
in their clash with the Spooks, being unable to find the basket except
with penalty shots. The Spooks
however, were in good form and
could not be held down-
Mine Girls: P. Arscott 1, B. Cannon 1, V. Powell, Y. Cannon 1, J
Roberts, G. Bodin.
Spooks: N. Salmon 1, C. McColl,
K. Eve 6, P. Campbell 1, H. Glass,

In the Senior A fixture the "ant-
lered herd" locked horns with the
Vandals, impaling them on the
short end of a 24-17 score. The
Elks played a sterling game and
never let up until the final whistle,
Vandals were minus Kulai and
Home. Watson, a recent addition
to their ranks, turned in a good
card. A slight inclination to
roughness, was sternly checked by
L. Gillies, who handled the game
efficiently and resulted in six players reaching their quota of penalties and being sent to the showers.
These were the Calderoni boys and
Samaan for the Mine and Watson,
Hamilton, and Currie for the Elks.
Tho teams: Vandals, T. Calderoni 7, F. Calderoni 4. Woodman,

Nothing ever daunts the people
of Hidden Creek Mine. They have
a reputation for being loyal and
generous in any good cause, no
matter what may he impending,
and this was exemplified at the
Masquerade Dance held under the
auspices of the Mine Branch of the
A. C. L. ou Friday, December 7th
Two hundred and twenty people
took the floor of the Mine Hall on
this occasion, and formed a scene
of color, variety, and gaiety which
will not soon be forgotten.
There was a great diversity of
costumes, ranging from babies to
burglars. There were ballet girls,
harlequins, perriots, powder puffs,
robots, Victorian ladiesi nurses, boy
scouts, school girls, professors, and
a South Sea Islander in her latest
finery. There were two Father
Christmases: one so realistic that
he—she—took first prize!
Buntain's Orchestra supplied
music that kept toes tingling; appetizing refreshments gave new
life and zest, and a congenial atmosphere kept everybody iu excellent mood. Prizewinners were:
Best. Pressed Lady, Mrs. D. P
Williams: Best Dressed Gentleman,
W. Wright; Best Comic Lady,
Miss H. Calderoni; Best Comic
Gentleman, P. Chenoski; Best original Lady, Mrs. H. Black; Best Original Gentleman, Mr. C. Black.
During the evening the Mine
Minstrel troupe entertained with
some selections from their recent
concerts. The proceeds of the affair
were devoted to welfare work undertaken by the Mine Branch of
the A. C. L.
Young People Enjoy  Card
A Card Party was held in Christ
Church Parish Hall on Monday,
December 10th. by the A. Y. P. A.
Whist proved to be the popular
game and those who received the
prizes were: Mrs. W. Boyce, Mrs.
W. F. Eve, Miss Rita Henderson
and Mr. H. R. Kent.
After a delightful supper, community Kinging was indulged in
for the remainder of the very successful evening. The proceeds
were added to the Christmas Tree
Fund, for the Christ Church Sunday School.
Elks Elect Officers For
Coming Year
For the year 1935 the following
officers were elected by the Anyox
Lodge, B. P. O. Elks at their meeting on Monday evening last:
Exaltad Ruler—D. M. Campbell.
Leading Knight—W. M. Webber.    .
Loyal Knight—K. A. Hunter.
Lecturing Knight—T. M. Stretton.
Secretary—M.J. Sheen.     *"'
Treasurer.—B. M. Buck.
Inner Guard—J. Weir.
Tyler—R. Buttery.
Trustee—M. Cranley.
Organist—Frank Allan.
Installation of the newly-elected
officers will take place early in the
New Year.
The Lodge is planning to make
their New Year Dance a really
memorable function, and expect to
have a large crowd of merrymakers
as their patrons ou that occasion.
Elks Forego Idea Of
Beauty Contest
After careful consideration, the
local Lodge of the B'. P. O. E. have
abandoned the idea of holding a
beauty and popularity contest at
their New Year Dance. This is on
account of the fact that such a contest would necessarily take up considerable time during the evening.
It is the desire of the Brother Bills
that everyone enjoy as much dancing
at that popular function as possible.
This New Year Dance, to which
so many Anyox people look forward
each year, is definitely slated to
take place. Plenty of dancing, a
ood floor, an excellent orchestra
and a bounteous supper. Plan to
go to this colorful event. You will
be glad that you did so.

Two Picture Shows Will Be
Held Christmas Day
As many people have requested
that a picture be shown on Christmas Day, it has been arranged to
show "Viva Villa." There will be
a matinee at 2 o'clock and an evening show at 8 o'clock. In this way
there will be no interference with
the usual time for Christmas dinner.
Viva Villa is a wonderfully fine
picture, it is a story of the life and
loves (if that colorful personage and
revolutionary leader, Pancho Villa
This picture took ten months to
produce, one hundred cameras were
required to film it and a hundred
thousand people appear in it.
Color, action, and thrills throughout—a fine show for Christmas
Day only.
A very interesting and impressive
ceremony was performed at the
Alice Arm cemetery on Sunday last
when the Memorial stone recently
erected on the grave of the late Mr.
Patrick Clune was unveiled.
Nine members of Anyox Lodge
No. 47 B. P. O. Elks, and J. J. H.
Varnes, Past Chancellor of Lodge
No. 40 Knights of Pythias journeyed from Anyox to perform the ceremony. They were joined at Alice
Arm by several other Elks and a
few visitors also attended.
The unveiling service was conducted by H. Hallcrow, Exalted
Ruler of Anyox Lodge No. 47 and
P. Powell, Chaplain, and the flag
which covered the grave was removed by H. Hallcrow, representing
the Elks and J. J. H. Varnes representing the Knights of Pythias.
The headstone which weighs over
two hundred pounds, is embedded
in concrete which covers the whole
grave, and which will endure for
The cost was defrayed by the
Anyox Elks' Lodge and Grand
Forks Lodge No. 30 Knights of
Pythias, of which Lodges the late
Mr. Patrick Clune was a member,
and both of which were beneficiaries
under his will.
The Elks from Anyox attending
the ceremony were: H. Hallcrow,
Exalted Ruler; E. Johnson, Past
Exalted Ruler; P. Powell, Chaplain
J. Buntain, Esq.; J. Weir, J. Dickson, J. Bell, S. Armstrong, W.
Feyer. They were joined at Alice
Arm by O. Evindsen, G. Anderson,
E. Moss. J. J. Varnes of Anyox,
Past Chancellor of Lodge No. 40,
represented the Knights of Pythias.
When Anyox Will Close Is
Still Uncertain
Foreign  Copper  Producers
May Curtail Production
It is reported that world copper
producers have entered into negotiations for a meeting to be held in
Continued on page 4
At an extraordinary meeting of
the shareholders of the Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting and
Power Company held at New
York on Wednesday, it was deoided to continue operations as
long as it was expedient to do so
and the prioe of copper justified it.
In view of the above decision, it
seems uncertain just when operations at Anyox will cease. Everything depends on future copper
prices, the grade of ore being mined
and mining costs.
As in past years, the Women's
Hospital Auxiliary will hold a
Christmas Tree and entertainment
at the Hospital • for the benefit of
patients at that institution. The
event will take place on Saturday
evening, December 22nd. The
ladies of the Auxiliary will be very
glad to look after any gifts which
friends of patients may wish to
give, and to have them plaoed on
the tree. Suoh gifts should be
left at the hospital prior to Saturday evening.
The Estimated Mineral
Production For B.C.
Shows a Great
Following is the report in part of
John F. Walker, provincial mineralogist, which shows the estimated
value of minerals mined in the province for this year. The report
shows that there will be a decided
increase in the value of all metals
over the 1933 production:
The estimated gross value of the
mineral production of the Province
for the year 1934, based on returns
for ten months, is $41,863,150, an '
increase of $9,260,478, or 28.4%
over 1933. This is very close to
the average production of $43,570,-
610 over the past 20 year period of
rapidly changing conditions. The
1914 low of $26,388,825 in thfs
period was nearly reached in 1921
and again in 1932; the peak year
came in 1929 with a value of $6S,.
Though the value of this year's
proddctioii is far from the 1929
peak, record volume production is
indicated for these metals.
In the case of gold an all time
high of 286,700 ounces lode and
21,000 ounces placer is estimated,
slightly exceeding the 1913 high of
272,254 ounces lode and 25,500
ounces placer. The value of this
year's production in Canadian funds
is estimated at $10,480,921, exceeding last year's value record by
50.6 per cent. The average price
of gold is estimated at $34.48 as
against $28.60 for last year and
the premium amounts to $4,197,831
as against $1,928,186 in 1933 and
$556,788 in 1932.
Lead production comes next in
value to gold and though the estimated value of $8,313,000 is far
below the high of $18,670,329 in
1925, the estimated volume or 340,-
700,000 lbs. is an all-time high
exceeding the 1930 record of 319,-
199,752 lbs. The average price of
lead is estimated at 2.44 cents per
pound and the gross value of this
year's production will show an increase of 28% over last year.
Zinc follows closely upon lead
with an estimated value of §7,674,-
051, considerably below the 1926
record value of $10,586,610 and in
volume just above the 1930 record

Continued from page 1
of 250;287,306 lbs. with an estimated production of 250,950,000 lbs.
The average zinc price is estimated
at 3.058 cents and the gross value
exceeds 1933 by 22 per cent.
Silver, with an estimated production of 8,907,000 ounces valued at
$4,197,869, shows an increase in
gross value of 58.4 per cent over
1933. The all time high in volume
production of silver was in 1930
with 11,289,171 ounces, valued at
38.154 cents per ounce and the record gross value of $6,675,606 was
made in 1926 with silver at 62.107
cents per ounce. It is interesting
to note that the past records in
silver production and value, have
not been due to extremely high
prices for the metal and that production was fairly steady from 1896
to 1921 in spite of wide fluctuations
in price. The sudden rise in the
volume of silver came in 1922 with
the sudden rise in the production of
lead and zinc and the future of silve^
volume production, will depend on
the markets for the base metals.
An appreciation in price will bring
into production a number of small
operations but the volume is not
likely to be very greatly affected.
Copper production has increased
12.3 per cent over 1933 with a volume of 49,400,000 lbs. valued at
$3,566,680. The estimated price
of 7.22 cents for the metal is slightly below the 1933 price of 7.458
cents per pound. In view of the
possibility of Granby closing down
its operations at Anyox in the near
future, the outlook for copper production in British Columbia is not
very bright, particularly when we
look back to the all time high in
1929 of 101,483,857 pounds of
metal valued at $18,375,682.
However, the increase in tonnage
of gold-copper ores in the Rossland
boundary country and the steadily
increasing production of gold are
likely to take its place.
Miscellaneous minerals including
bentonite, bismuth, cadmium, dia-
tomite, flux, gypsum and gypsite,
iron, mica, phosphate, platinum,
crushed slate.soda, sulphur content
of pyrite in the manufacture of sulphuric acid, and talc show the very
marked increase of 64.3 percent
over 1933, the value jumping from
$633,532 to $1,041,500.
It is interesting to compare the
position of the mining industry with
that of agriculture and lumbering
and its remarkable comeback
From the peak of production to the
low point in 1932, agriculture
dropped 45 per cent, mining 59 per
cent, and lumbering 62 per cent.
From the 1932 low points the estimated recovery this year is for
agriculture, 16 per cent, lumbering
23 per cent (not official), and mining 45 percent.
There is another side to the mining industry, namely, mining promotion, and recently some editorial writers have asked for statistics
concerning it. This opens a wide
field for speculative statistics, however, certain figures can be given,
which may throw some light on the
matter. Exclusive of 1928 and 1933
an average of 50 mining companies
have been incorporated each year
for the past several years. In 1928
and 1933, 171 and 155 companies
were incorporated respectively.
To obtain an estimate of the
amount of money raised by public
companies 5 representative companies operating in different parts
of the Province were studied, and
it has been found that about $193,-
518 has been raised from the sale
of 1,836,395 shares. Using this as
a basis, it is estimated that the 83
public companies, have to date
raised $4,709,437, or the value of
10J cents per share on treasury
stock or 5.6 cents per share on all
stock issued. It is impossible to
estimate the amount paid by the
public, for this stock but from an
average price tor these stocks a
ifigure of $12,558,500 has been obtained. These figures may be considerably at variance with the facts
if they were known, but even a
large percentage of error would
not greatly alter the picture.
Last year four dividend-paying
mining companies in British Columbia with par value stock of
$30,500,000 paid $2,925,276 in
dividends.    In the case of one com-
Mining  Provides   Big
Railway Tonnage
The tremendous development of
the gold mining industry in Eastern
Central Canada during the past few
years has been largely serviced by
the Canadian National Railways.
Freight in unusually large volumes
and passengers by the thousands
have rolled over "the peoples's
track" to the mining fields of
Quebec, Red Lake, Patricia, Sturgeon Lake, Tashota, and more
recently, Little Long Lac. Dikdik,
Beardmore and Sturgeon River.
Over their lines, too, have gone
part way freight and people for
Popcupine, Kirkland, Matachewan,
Manitoba, Great Bear Lake. Supplies and equipment from points
clear across the Dominion are concentrated at these centres to carry
on the work at hundreds of mines
and prospects.
It is difficult to accurately appraise
the full measure of secondary benefits from this thriving basic industry that have reverberated right
down the lines carrying inspiration
and dollar business into all the
larger cities and thousands of
smaller places.
pany some of this profit may be
attributed to operations outside of
the province. This year the same
companies are paying $4,433,354.
It would therefore appear that during a mining boom slightly more
money is put into the ground than
is taken out in dividends, but in
normal years such evidently is not
the case.

distinction of being won by a song. The Spanish
admiral who led an expedition against it in 1790, so
charmed the heart of the warlike Maquinna, Lord

blessed than that of matrimony.'
llev. A. Abraham upheld the affirmative, while Ted Kergin was for
the negative. The debate was held
along parliamentary lines with

of the House.
The affirmative based his argument on the fact that a bacheloi

The negative side maintained
that it is the law of nature, for man
to seek a life partner. He further
pointed out that a married man
lives longer than a bachelor does,
due to the fact, that he enjoys well-
cooked meals, is given the best of
care for the least ailment, and his
''better half" does not permit him
to indulge too strongly in those
recreations harmful to him. It is
also true, that a married man lives

that he is assisting to raise the new

over the estimated value of the production in the corresponding six-month period of 1933.
GOLD PRODUCTION: Gold production showed a
decided increase; a total return in Canadian funds
to the gold producers of British Columbia during the
first six months for 1934 being approximately
$5,028,124.00, an increase of 81.3 per cent, over
