New Resident Engineer
Has Had Wide
The appointment of Joseph T.
Mandy to the position of Resident
Mining Engineer No. 1 Mineral
Survey District, with headquarters
at Prince Rupert, is announced
by the Honourable W. A. McKenzie, Minister of Mines.
Dr. Mandy will take office on the
1st. of June, and thus be in a position to get into the field as soon as
weather conditions in the higher
elevations of the Portland Canal
District, permit.
The previous occupant of this
position was Dr. H. T. James, who
left the Government Service on
31st. March last in order to take
a position with the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power
Company. Dr. James is engaged
in geological and mining engineering work in connection with the
properties of this Company at
In the selection of Dr. Mandy it
is confidently felt that the Honourable Mr. McKenzie has obtained
services of such thorough technical
grounding and wide experience, as
will assure the satisfactory discharge of the responsible duties
attached to his new office. His
first studies were at the Seafield
Park Technical College, Hampshire,
England, from 1897 to 1899. From
the latter year until 1901 he attended the Institute of Physics, Frankfurt, Germany. In 1901 he enrolled at the Royal Academy of Mines,
Freiberg, Saxony, where he pursued
his studies until 1905. One year
was spent in practical underground
mining in the silver-lead and tin
mines of Erageberge and the zinc
mines of Kattowitz, Upper Silesia.
He graduated in Mining Engineering from this Academy in 1905.
Dr. Mandy's next step was to
take a special course in geology,
mineralogy and chemestry at the

Alice Arm Dance Held
Devotees of the terpsichorean
art again availed themselves of an
opportunity of indulging in their
favorite pastime on Saturday when
a dance was held at T. W. Falconer's hall.
A good number were present and
a very happy evening was spent
by all.
Anyox Ball Players Anxious
To Prove Skill
Anyox visitors to Alice Arm
Ion May 24th. are anxious to bring
lover a baseball team to try con-
[elusions with the locals if they can
{produce a nine. Just as well for
phe boys to get a little practice in
base of hostilities.
Badminton Trophies Are
Presented At Dance
Concluding the 1928-29 Season
the Badminton Club were hosts to
a number of friends at a dance in
the gymnasium last Friday evening.
Music of the best order was kindly
furnished by the Victor Orchestra.
About ten-thirty the guests repaired to the dining room where
an excellent supper was served,
complete with the appropriate beverage. Cups were presented by the
vice-president Mrs. Cutler to the
season's winners: Ladies' singles,
Mrs. J. Smith; ladies'doubles, Mrs.
Smith and Mrs. J. A. D. Stewart;
Men's singles, Mr. F. Brown; men's
doubles, Messrs. Brett and Stevens.
During supper Mr. Corran delighted the gathering with a few
selections. The spirit of those in
attendance indicated an excellent
season for badminton next year.
Committee Appointed To
Investigate Tennis Court
At a public meeting on Monday
new* light was thrown on the feasibility of a tennis court at the Flats
thus making possible local inter-
club competition. Location, specifications, and prices were touched
upon and a committee was appointed to compare kinds of courts and
costs. The members are; Messrs.
J. Henderson, J. Smith, E. Hulks,
E. Brett, and E. Armstrong. They
will report to the Community
League Council at an early date.
Telegraph Rate to Vancouver
The telegraph rate of the Government Telegraph lines from Alice
Arm and Anyox has been reduced.
Under the new rate it is possible
to send 10 words in a day message
for $1.20, and 50 words in a night
letter for the same amount. The
former rate was $1.80.
This reduction will be a great
convenience to the distriot as it
will undoubtedly be the cause of
more messages being sent.    '*•.

Vancouver    Exhibition
Ore Samples Being
It is the intention of the British
Columbia Chamber of Mines to
have a record mineral exhibit at
the Vancouver and New Westminster fairs this year.
President Frank Woodside states
that the exhibit will surpass all
former efforts of past years. New
samples are daily arriving from all
parts of the province at headquarters of the Chamber of Mines.
It is not too early for mining
companies and property owners of
Alice Arm to commence getting
their samples out.
We should, in order to keep in
line with the rest of the province
send a representative ore display.
On several occasions during the
past few years Alice Arm ores have
carried oil' more prizes than any
other district. This fact is quickly
forgotten, however, and in order to
impress the public with our rich
mineral wealth, persistent advertising is necessary.
The British Columbia Chamber
of Mines offers us the opportunity.
We should take advantage of it.

The annual report of the
Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting and Power Co. Ltd. published in last week's issue was very
pleasant and interesting. Pleasant
for the shareholders, whose money
is invested in developing our mineral deposits, and also equally pleasant for the employees of the
company, who would much rather
be in the service of a company who
are making a profit, than one who
is struggling from hand to mouth to
make ends meet. Big profits mean
high copper prices, and the latter
spells increased wages for those
who are instrumental in mining
the crude ore and converting it into copper. The showing of a nice
profit for the Granby Co. on last
year's operations not only benefits
the shareholders and employees,
but it may also prove beneficial to
other districts in the north.
The company is now in a much
better position to expand their
operations than has been the case
for a long time. This expansion
will be made as near to Anyox as
possible, there is no doubt, if everything is favorable. The expansion
of the Granby Co. in the north
would be very welcome. It would
give an impetus to mining. They
have in Anyox a highly trained
staff, who have solved every problem in treating low grade complex
ores profitably. And they could
probably mine and treat the low
grade ore bodies of the north at a
profit where many other companies
would show a loss.
If one has doubts as to whether
or not there will be prosperity in
Western Canada during the coming
few years it will be mental tonic to
reflect on the fact that in as short
a period as four years the Canadian
Pacific and National railways arc
likely to spend about $120,000,000
in new railway construction west of
Hudson Bay to the Alberta boundary.
Copper   Was   Beyond
Buyer's Reach
Export shipments of copper have
not looked promising because the
rest of the world could not afford
to pay high prices for the metal and
high rates on money with which to
finance industrial expansion says
The Brookmire Economic Service,
Inc., in its current report on the
copper industry. Reported refined'
stocks of copper are low, but a
more potent factor is the stimulus
which production has received from
unduly high prices. In order that
output may be brought in line with
estimated consumption for the rest
of the year, sharp curtailment must
occur. For the time being the decline may have gone far enough to
establish a trading basis, and there'l
is a possibility of a renewed upswing
if sentiment again should be bullish-
ly influenced, but any sustained rise
must be contingent upon expansion
in general business.
Over 300 Whales On
Coast Killed Last Year
It may be news to a good many
people but whaling adds a tidy
little sum every year to the British
Columbia trade totals. Last year
305 whales were taken by the fleet
of six steamers operating from the
two whaling stations on the British
Columbia coast and were used in
the production offish meal, fertilizer
and oil. Figures covering the value
ofthe 1928 production have not yet
been finally revised by the Fisheries
Branch ofthe Department of Marine
and Fisheries but in 1927, when the
number of whales killed was 47 less
than in 1928, the value of the meal,
fertilizer, oil, and whalebone obtained was $241,488.
Of the 305 whales taken last year
the largest number, 140, were of
the finback variety. Eighty-three
sperm whales were killed, 47 sulphur, 21 humps, 13 of the sei variety
and one lone bottlenose.
That is the situation as it stands
today. It would be reasonable
to predict that this figure will be
nearer $200,000,000, for the coming
four or five are going to see an entirely new area of Canada's northwest opened to development and
even though the Canadian National
Railway is government-owned, Sir
Henry is a competitive force in the
railway game and the C. P. R. will
not be disposed to let its position
be endangered.—Financial Times.

Mining Regions Benefits
By Air Travel
Gradually Canada is awakening
to the advantages of using' the air
as a means of rapid transportation,
but progress moves slowly, except
in Manitoba and Western Ontario,
where there is probably more genuine honest-to-goodness unsubsid-
ized commercial flying done than in
any other locality in the world, owing to the enterprise of a purely
Canadian organization, which is
doing a profitable business over the
desolate expanses of undeveloped
regions, by using aircraft to bridge
distances separating remote mining
areas from "civilization".
Payroll of British  Columbia
Shows Increase
The final payroll audit of British
Columbia industries, although not
yet complete, is expected to show
an industrial payroll of approximately $180,000,000 for the past
year. This total represents an increase of almost $5,000,000 over
the figure of the preceding year,
while the number of firms has
grown from 8,234 in 1927 to
8,688 in 1928. Making allowance
for firms which discontinued, a net
gain of 446 is shown in the number
of industries actively engaged during the year.

the door? Did you tell him I was

Continued from Page I
University of Freiburg, Baden, Germany. Between 1905 and 1907
one year was spent in the field mapping the structural geology of a
section of the Jura Mountains,
Switzerland. Finally in 1907 he
graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) with Geology as major
and Mineralogy and Chemistry as
minor subjects.
Coming to Canada in 1908 he
was employed with the Nipissing
Mining Company, Cobalt, Ontario,
and was active in various Eastern
mining camps until 1914, when he
left the employ of the Company
named to become associated with a
recruiting campaign under the
auspices of the Canadian Department of Militia. Enlisting at Vancouver in the Canadian Engineers
he served overseas at Siberia until
demobolized in 1919.
Between 1920 and 1922 Dr.
Mandy was in the service of the
United States Smelting, Refining
and Mining Company, as British
Columbia field engineer, under Mr.
A. P. Anderson, Consulting Engineer, Oakland, California. Exploratory investigations were carried
out particularly along the Eastern
and Western contacts of the Coast
Range Batholith from Portland
Canal across Naas River divide into Skeena River area.
It will be clear therefore that Dr.
Mandy, by virtue of his training
and his experience in British Columbia is qualified for the work to
which he has now been called. He
is following two exceptionally able
Engineers, viz., G. A. Clothier and
Dr. H. T. James, in the North-western section of the province. It
seems fortunate that the Honourable Mr. McKenzie has been able to
find a man apparently so fully
equipped to carry on his policy of
actively co-operating with prospectors and miners in the development
of the mineral resources of this
section of British Columbia.
