Bradley and Rodoman
Acquitted Owing To
Insufficient Evidence
Other   Strikers   Remanded
Pending Bail
Tom Bradley and John Rodoman,
who were charged with unlawful
assembly in connection with the
strike at Anyox were freed at the
Prince Rupert Police Court on Wednesday, owing to lack of evidence
against them. The others charged
with the same offense will be committed for trial as soon as the judge
arrives to arrange bail. Their
names are Joe Servich, Kenny Montgomery, Matt Yjurgevich, W. R.
Mclver and Geo. Sanvedo. They
have reserved defence. Bradley
defended himself and the others
were defended by L. W. Patmore.
All of the accused were charged
with taking part in the fracas with
the police on the Mine Road bridge
on February 3rd.
All the constables, who were on
duty on the Mine Road that morn-
| ing and were engaged in the scuffle,
gave evidence.
Constable Smith, who was in
charge of a squad of 7 policemen at
the mine road bridge on the morning of February 3rd. gave a graphic
description of what took place.
The strikers refused to stop and
stated their intention of going
through to the Beach: Some of the
crowd had weapons but not those
in the lead. The police tried to
hold them back and fired their guns
in the air. Two policemen who
were coming down behind the crowd
were molested and one badly beaten.
Constable Greenhalgh was dragged
down and the crowd "put the boots
to him."
Constable Wier was also badly
injured, being covered with blood.
There were several hundred miners
present and witness decided that it
was time to give way and he and the
other police preceded the men to the
Beach. Employees of the Granby
Co. and police testified as to the
number of strikers in the parade for
picket duty and the weapons carried
by some of the men. These weapons which were exhibited at the
trial consisted of short lengths of
hosepipe, iron bars, and implement
Later news received by wire on
Thursday night—Constables told
their story of rough handling given
them by the mob. Greenhalgh re
lated the efforts of Constable Smith
to stop the men from going to the
Beach. Constable Service in giving
evidence, told of how he explained
to the men what the police wanted
them to do, but they would not lis-
Card Party and Dance Given
By Junior Sports' Club
Very Enjoyable
The card party and dance given
by the Alice Arm Junior Sports Club
at the Alice Arm Hotel on Saturday
evening, was without question the
most enjoyable event of the season.
A large number were present and
every minute was thoroughly enjoyed. Card playing commenced at
8.30 followed by a supper and a
short period of dancing. The winners at cards were: Ladies' 1st.
Mrs. E. Petersen; Consolation Mrs.
J. Trinder. Men's 1st. prize, E.
Svarars; Consolation, W. B. Bower.
The winners of the bean guessing
contest were Mrs. J. Graham and
J. Walmsley.
Following a very appetising supper, the floor was cleared for dancing and throughout the evening it
was packed with dancers. Music
was supplied by various musicians
and their efforts were rewarded by
many encores.
The Junior Sports Club is to be
congratulated on the arrangements
made for such an enjoyable evening.

ten and all shouted "Lets rush em."
He was separated from the others,
surrounded, knocked down and
threatened. When a revolver was
fired he got away.
Constable Gilker described how
he received two cracked ribs by a
blow as he was advising the men to
be peaceful.
In giving his evidence Constable
Wier, who came in from the rear
told of being surrounded, shoved
and held, kicked and beaten. They
tried to gouge out an eye and took
his revolver. He recognized Sanvedo as one of those assaulting him
He fought his way out bruised and
bleeding and was sent to the hospital.
Constable Roberts showed where his
hat had been damaged with a blow
on the head. Efforts were made he
said, to put him over the bridge.
His revolver, baton and watch were
taken by the strikers.
Constable Harrison escaped more
luckily. He related how he was
struck at hut not hurt.
Witnesses of the parade and picketing who attended the trial were:
W. B. Maxwell, assistant general
manager of the Granby Co., R. Gale
C. J. Docherty, R. Deeth, J. B.
Plans are being made by the
Granby Co. to resume operations immediately. A crew
will be put to work at the
Mine the first of next week.
The working force there will
be gradually built up, and it
is expected that enough ore
will be ready by March 1st.
to warrant the starting of the
concentrating mill. If this is
done all other departments
will shortly re-commence operations. A large number at
the Beach are anxiously awaiting a resumption of activity.
Parent-Teacher Assoc.

At a recent meeting of a number
of people interested, the Anyox
Parent Teachers' Association was
re-organized and tentative plans
made for an active season. Officers
were elected as follows: President
Mrs. McMaster; First Vice President Mrs. Doelle; Second Vice President, Mrs. Lee; Secretary, Mrs.
The next meeting of the Association will be held on Monday, February 20th. at8 p.m., in the public
school when Dr. Lang will give an
address. There will be a musical
programme followed by refreshments, and a hearty invitation is
extended to anyone interested in the
Peace And   Quietness
Reigns Supreme
For over two weeks the big plant
at Anyox has been silent. Gone is
the roar and bustle of the big ore
reduction works, that for many
years have carried on uninterruptedly in spite of many obstacles.
From the mine right down
through the crushing plant, the concentrator, the sinter plant, smelter,
docks, warehouses and every other
part of the plant itself, not a wheel
is turning. Beyond a little necessary maintenance work here and
there, a few extra watchmen and
caretakers, the work in General
Store and the clerical offices, there
is no activity. The, silence and
stillness can almost be felt.
Champion Golfer Visits Local
Golf Class
On Monday last, the golf class
which is being conducted by Mr. S.
Peters received a visit from a golf
champion Mr. W. Pomeroy who is
at present in town. Mr. Pomeroy
who is on the police force, recently
won the mid-winter golf championship in Victoria, which carries with
it the handsome trophy cup presented by E. W. Beatty, President of
the Canadian Pacific Railway. Mr.
Pomeroy kindly took over the ladies'
class on the Monday evening, and
those attending were pleased to have
the benefit of his instruction.
At Anyox
A quiet wedding was solemnized
in the Anglican Church, Anyox, on
Wednesday evening February 8th.
when Miss Ruby Grace Downing,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert J.
Downing, of Fillmore, Saskatchewan, was united in marriage tu Mr.
I. Osberg of Anyox.
The ceremony was performed by
the Rev. W. B. Jennings. Miss
Edna Owen was the bridesmaid and
Mr. John Havik acted as best man.
A number of friends of both parties
were present and a reception was
afterwards held at the apartments
of the newly wedded couple, who
will reside in Anyox.

The contralto voice of Miss Isabel

"Well, Well, Well" and also to the
encore  "Give me the Moonlight".
The variety of the programme
was maintained when Mr. M. J.

songs playing his own accompaniment which were much appreciated.
A feature of the evening was the
singing of several Victor Herbert
selections by Mrs. V. S. McRae and
Mr. N. R. Redman, to the accompaniment of the full orchestra.
The lovely numbers were greatly
enjoyed and had to be repeated.
Two violin duets, by Messrs. Armstrong and McRae, were given with
nice blending and expression the
first being "Fiddle and I" and the
second "Sing me to Sleep." The
number "Coon Band Contest" in

was given with a vigor that was refreshing while "The Hunting Scene"
delighted the audience. Other

New Map  of  Coast Area
Recently Published
Among the recent publications
of the Geological Survey, Department of Mines, Ottawa, is a map
(No. 278A) showing the geological
features and principal mineral occurrences along the main waterways, and over large scattered sections of an area which includes the
northern portion of Queen Charlotte Islands, and that part of the
mainland of British Columbia lying
roughly 160 miles to the south, and
to the east, and 50 miles to the
north of Prince Rupert.
Reference to the marginal notes
shows that the whole region is one
of varied and widespread mineralization. Occurrences of high grade
lead-silver and gold-copper mineralization are numerous, but intensive prospecting is necessary to determine whether this mineralization
is sufficiently concentrated to constitute commercial deposits.
The map is on a scale of 8 miles
to the inoh, and carries marginal
notes in respect to the general
geology, in addition to those on
mineral occurrences. Copies may
be obtained by application to the
Director, Geological Survey, Department of Mines, Ottawa.
London View of  The
Present Copper
Is something drastic at last contemplated with a view to lifting
copper out of the mire? Following
the collapse of the New York conference of world producers electrolytic changed hands in America at
the new low record of 4-85 cents
per lb. Since then a modest rally
has occurred, says the Stock Exchange Gazette of London, Eng.
The story goes that some of the
principal United States producers
are contemplating a suspension of
new output for six months or more.
It is suggested that this would be;
the only way of getting rid at all
quickly of the huge American accumulation of unsold copper, which
is being largely financed by the
banks. But a few months ago a
new duty of 4 cents per lb. was
imposed on copper entering the
United States, so that domestic
producers have a virtually closed
It looks as though for a time at
any rate, prosperity in the copper
industry will have to depend on regional agreements. If United
States producers will bind themselves not to compete outside their
own territory, then one can con
ceive of a working agreement to
share the rest of the world between
the mines of the British Empire,
the Belgian Congo and South
America. There must, one imagines, be some idea of this sort behind the obvious reluctance of
Rhodesian, Canadian and Austra
lian copper companies to press for
the actual imposition of the duty
of twopence per lb. on the metal,
which was provisionally promised
by the Ottawa Conference. So far
as can be seen, it would not pay
Empire producers io shut the United Kingdom to the foreigner if
this were immediately to provoke
a priee-cutting war in Europe and
the East.
"Do you call this a fog?" said the
old salt. "Why I remember once
we were on the Newfoundland
banks and the fog. was so thick
that we were sitting on the ship's
rail leaning up against it, and when
the fog lifted suddenly, we all fell
backwards into the water."

With the fall of the leaf and the
tang of autumn in the air the
fishing rod is laid aside and the
Nimrods look to their rifles and
shotguns, as the hunting season is
ushered in. True to her reputation
as one of the world's greatest playgrounds. Canada offers a wide
range of sport, furred, feathered
and horned, to all who care to
penetrate its far-flung hinterlands.
From coast to coast, all along the
vast system of the Canadian Pacific Railway, there are countless es
tablished points of entry into the
woods and mountains, readily
accessible to those in search of
game. The shores of countless
lakes, rivers, and creeks, abound
with all varieties of duck and goose
and are not infrequently the scene
of the termination of successful
expeditions after moose, elk and
deer of all kinds. New Brunswick
rivals Ontario and Quebec as moose
territory, while further west, the
towering Rockies offer their tribute
of bear, mountain sheep and
mountain goat. Bear are also plentiful in the Ontario northland and
in certain parts of Quebec. With
a view to preservation, various
changes have been made this year
in the game laws of all Canadian
provinces, but even with the new
restrictions a broad period of
hunting is offered and the invading
army from Canadian centres, as
well as from the United States, is
already starting on its expeditions.
Winter Sports in Canada
Skiing—Bob-Sledding—Hockey—Curling—Tobogganing—Dog Derbies
Outstanding Attractions
J HE invigorating climate of
a typical Canadian winter, now regarded u an
advantage rather than a
hardship, owing to the unusual variety of healthful
and appealing sports, is
attracting increasing numbers of visitors to the Dominion.
Across Canada there are many
beautiful and attractive snow-clad
mountains, hills and valleys, which
offer exceptional opportunities for
enjoying a wide variety of outdoor
winter sports. The principal activities
throughout the country are skiing,
snowshoeing, skating, tobogganing,
curling, hockey, bob-sledding and
dog derbies, all of which may be
thoroughly enjoyed, under ideal conditions. With the exception of an
occasional day during mid-winter,
the temperature is not too cold for
participating in outdoor sports.
While motor travel is not general
during the winter season, there are
many long stretches of highway which
are kept conditioned throughout the
winter months. The traveller will
always find train servioe a modern
and luxurious means of transportation. Hotels in many of the leading
summer resort districts remain open
the year round, providing good
accommodation for those wishing to
participate in local winter events.
Wide Range of Sports in Every
Each province possesses winter
attractions more or less peculiar to
its own particular surroundings. Practically all forms of winter sport are
available in the Maritime Provinces, but a preference is shown for
hockey and curling. In the province
of Quebec the major sport events
centre in and around Montreal,
Quebec City, Murray Bay and the
Lnurentian mountains. Lovers of
winter sports will find vast territories in Ontario which are ideal
in location and in scenic beauty.
Ottawa, the federal capital, is adjacent to sonic of the finest skiing
country on the continent, while the
beet of ice-yachting may be enjoyed
in Torbnto bay and along the waterfront of lake Ontario. In the Mus-
koka and Algonquin Park districts,
hotels and cabins are open for the
accommodation of winter visitors.
In Manitoba the Winnipeg bonspiel
also the winter carnival held at The
Pas, are annual events of international interest, while Banff, situated
in the scenic Canadian Rockies in
Alberta, is one of the most important centres for winter sports.
Record performances in ski-jumping
have been witnessed at Revelstoke.
The  islands  and   mainland  of  the
southwestern pant of British Colum*
bia offer golf, tennis and othel
summer sports, for the winter visitor.

Statement Made Regarding
C. N. R. Losses Untrue
February 11—Statement is made
in a Montreal morning paper that
the Canadian National has been
losing at the rate of more than one
million dollars a week on operation
alone without any regard to interest charges. This statement is untrue. The Canadian National
Railways System in 1932 met its
operating expenses and had an operating net of upwards of ten million dollars, an improvement of
more than two and a half million
dollars as compared with 1931.
On the Eastern line of the Canadian National, the results from
which are presented separately,
under the provisions of the Maritime Freight Rates Act, the operating deficit in 1932 was four million
two hundred thousand dollars, an
improvement of two million two
hundred thousand dollars as compared with 1931.
Gold Export Still Prohibited
Prohibition of the export of gold
whether in coin or bullion, except
under a license by the Minister of
Finrnce, will continue until December 31st. this year, unless sooner
rescinded by order-in-oouncil. This
