Coming Year By
1.0. D. E.
The annual meeting of the Colli
son of Kincolith Chapter, I. 0. D.
E., was held in the Legion Hall on

Seoretary, Miss K. Eve; Standard
Bearer, Mrs. T. J. Kirkwood; Councillors: Mesdames T. W. Pinckney,
J. F. Cloke, W F. Barclay.
The reports presented showed
that during the year a great deal
of relief work had been done, needy
families and unemployed having
been assisted. This work is not
only local, but covers a large
amount of territory extending as
far north as the Peace River. R9'
quests for assistance had been numerous and* urgent and the
members had striven to do all that
had been asked. They hope to
make the year 1984 an even more
successful one iu this important
An oratorical contest among the
scholars of the High. School and
Publio School was sponsored by
the I. 0- D. E. and prizes donated
to the winners. A library of books
was sent to the sohool at Hazelton
and I. 0. D. E. calendars were
presented to some of the smaller
schools in the district.
A message was read from Mrs.
Curtis Sampson for "Founders'
Day," February 13th. The Order
was founded by Mrs. Clark Murray
in Montreal on February 13th. 1900.
The local Chapter will donate a
sum of money to the Columbia
Coast Mission, and will also renew
the subscription for "The Sailor"
at the Beaoh Library. Miss Vera
Eve will again be Playing Cards
Convener. Hostesses for the evening were Mesdames Ashmore,
Cavers and Barclay.
Mr. Lars Anderson Passes
Word has just been reoeived that
Mr. Lars Anderson, to whom reference was made in our last issue,
has passed away at his home in
Norway. Mr. Anderson's thoughts'
dwelt continually on his old associates in Anyox and his last words
were that he wished to be remembered to all the Anyox boys.
Carnival Dance Unique
And Entertaining
Barkers eager for patronage; the
rolling of huge dice down steep
inclines; the thrills of horse racing
and crown and anchor games, and
all that goes to make up a miniature oamival was very much in
evidence at the Carnival Dance
held by the looal Chapter of the
I. 0. D. E. in the Gymnasium on
Monday the 12th. The aifair was
a success from every point of view.
Not a moment was wasted throughout the evening, as in the intervals
between the dances, large numbers
orowded round the various wheels
and other devices and a large
quantity of useful articles for home
and personal use were borne triumphantly away. The floor was
at its best; the Revellers' Orchestra
excelled themselves in the quality
of musio supplied and the supper
was most enjoyable. During the
interval for this part of the evening
the Legion Orchestra played a
number of the familiar, old-time
tunes, whioh were much apppreci-
ated. Further details of this enjoyable function will be given in
our next issue.
The  Children's  Badminton
Tourney Arouses Interest
As a result of several weeks'
tuition in badminton which they
have given to children during the
past season, a group of enthusiasts
comprising Mrs. Macintyre, Mrs.
Wenerstrom, Mrs. Warwick, Mrs.
J. Smith and Mr. A. Kirby, con
ducted a children's tournament in
the Gymnasium on Saturday the
10th. There was a large attendance of children and keen interest
was taken in the various contests,
The winners were: First, Priscella
Rogers and George Kent; Consola
tion prize, Allan Cutler and Moyra
Manning. Each couple played
ten games. A similar tourney is
planned for the middle of March.
Popular Local Couple

A pretty wedding took place in
Anyox on Monday evening, February 12th. the contracting parties

Dr. J. T. Mandy May Be
Appointed Mineralogist
Speculation is rife as to the
appointment of a provincial mineralogist to succeed J. D. Galloway,
who retires at the' end of the
month. In mining circles at Viotoria, the two names most prominently mentioned are those of Dr.
Joseph T. Mandy, resident engineer of the North-western district
with headquarters at Prince Ru •
pert, and Douglas Lay, resident
engineer with headquarters at
Hazelton. Mr. Lay has been in
the government servioe for many
years and is credited with much of
the successful development in the
Barkerville area.
Dr. Mandy is a graduate of Freiberg University, Germany, from
which famed school of mining he
received the degree of doctor of
geology. Both men are highly
thought of in mining oiroles and
have many supporters for the position. Announcement of the appointment is expected to be made
in a few days.

Pirates Forfeit To The
Vandals B After
Hectic Game
Protesting against alleged discrimination in the handling of the
game against the Vandals B on
Friday the 9th. the Pirates walked
off the floor five minutes before
time, thus forfeiting the game to
their opponents. It was a somewhat hectic struggle, the score
standing at 16 to 10 in favor of the
Vandals. The teams: Pirates;
Scott 4; Ferguson 2; Falconer 4;
Hardy, Deeth, Dodsworth, Parsons.
Vandals B. McMillan 5; White 4;
Heinekey 2; Reid 3; Windle 2,
As a means of further training in
readiness for the possible visit of
the Rupert All-star Ladies' team, a
tentative all-star ladies' quintette
tried conclusions with a selected
boys' team and played a game that
was anybody's until the closing
minutes, when the boys could not
be held back. This means of training has proved its efficacy, as the
girls showed speed, team work and
real aggressiveness. The game
ended in favor of the boys 25 to 20,
Scott accounting for 20 points.
The teams: D. McDonald; Dan
McDonald 1; Parsons 1; Hardy; J.

L. Dresser 2; N. Salmon 2; K. Eve
10; M. Dresser 4; P. Loudon; M.

Although the Bon Cons put up
an heroic struggle in their tilt with
Vandals A, they were outclassed in
all departments. Vandals showed
not only uncanny cleverness aud
combining power, but their checking was most effective and their
short, quick passes were a treat to
watch. Steele and Arney played a
masterly game, the former getting
in some sensational field shots,
while Currie was a pillar of strength
at guard. The teams: Bon Cons;
Steele 10; H. Jack 2; Arney 10;
Currie 2; Vance. Vandals A. T.

The Prince John Radios
Advance Notice To
Q. C. Islanders
Big as the rest of the Canadian
National System may be, it has
nothing on the "Prince John," its
single screw, 540-ton Pacific coast
steamship, for service.
Not long ago the Prince John
installed a 100-watt continuous
wave transmitter, with telephone
attachment, to notify its ports of
call of the boat's arriving time.
fn the John's fortnightly trips to
the Queen Charlotte Islands she
encounters all kinds of weather as
she plows her way to the logging
centres of the southern island and
the canning towns of Graham
Island on the north. Making as
many as five ports in one day, her
schedule can not be exact under the
So now the John has her transmitter and ordinary domestic radio
sets can pick up her wave. Accordingly, when the John approaches one of her many ports of call,
the operator, who is also the ship's
purser, goes on the air in his best
Jimmy Wallington style and gently
breaks the news that, like the
Campbell clan, "The John's a-
Due to the genial nature of her
entire crew, the John is always a
welcome visitor in the Queen Charlottes. Here is one reason for the
John's popularity. Making its last
call north at Massett, the boat picked up a woman taking her infant
daughter to hospital at Prince
Rupert where an operation had to
be performed to remove a safety
pin that somehow became lodged in
the child's throat. An anxious
father and grandmother waited behind. From Prince Rupert next
day the operator broadcast the
good news over the transmitter that
the babe was "doing fine."
When the John is abeam of Rose
Spit on her southbound trip she
makes a broadcast for just one
customer and it saves the gentleman a lot of time and money.
He's the postmaster at Tlell, some
15 or 20 miles from Queen Charlotte City at which point he delivers his mail to be picked up by the
Prince John, which is also a mail
boat. Once when the John was
stormbound, the postmaster waited
nearly two days at his own expense
to get the mail aboard.
Some of the Islanders must travel
20 or 30 miles to meet the boat.
You can guess the convenience
when they see heavy weather brewing and know that delays may
United Empire Mine At
Stewart Promises
Western Canada Mining News
Things are looking better every
day in Portland Canal district and
with the advance of the price of silver, activity will be considerable.
With the ratio of silver to gold
about 80 to 1, a sudden increase in
price may come when least expected.
Principal of the active- mines,
apart from Premier and Big Missouri, is United Empire, which
promises to be a large operator in
the near future, as it is able to pay
profits with silver at 40 cents.
Another large property on which
work will start in the spring is In-;
dependence. Negotiations for a
working deal are in progress.
All miners know what it means
when two large veins converge to j
form one ore body, and on the
United Empire are two veins of ex
cellent ore, 12 feet each in width
that me*et a few hundred feet to the
southwest of the present workings.
A little surface work in oxidized
material indicates a very large ore
body. Before snowfall had stopped
operations, 1,500 sacks of ore had
been got ready for shipment to the
smelter, and the expression was
used that "it was like taking a
handful out of a carload." With
rich surface croppings proven for
nearly one-quarter of a mile in
length and one short tunnel at 175
feet depth proving 12 feet of fine
ore, the future of the mine appears
to be assured.
The camp is well built and powe^
connected from below so that the
1.600-foot tunnel to tap six veins
at depth should be soon driven.
A tramway already purchased will
carry the ore to the railway, two
miles from Stewart. United Empire is backed by the Col. Victor
Spencer interests, the work being
looked after by W. Dann. About
40 men are working.
The new road that passes over
Bayview ground will help the latter
property and shipments can be conveniently made to the smelter of
ore from the outcroppings of high-
grade silver ore. Bayview recently
sold a few claims to United Empire
for 200,000 shares in the latter
Higher silver prices will mean
action also on the Silverado and
Porter Idaho, and it is not unlikely
work will start on the latter property when the snow goes off.
W. R. Wilson interests, of Vancouver, will resume work on Hudson Bay mountain, near Smithers,
and on Dome mountain, as soon as
spring conditions permit.
One hundred and forty-four new
mining companies were incorporated in the first nine month of 1933.
A tunnel is being driven on the
Glacier Gulch mine, near Smithers,
from which ore was recently shipped
giving smelter returns of $100 per
ton in gold.

at Vancouver at the age of 72
years. The late Mr. Heidman was
in the employ of the Granby Company for twenty years, and for a
long time was in charge of operations at the Golkeish mine near
Anyox. Later he was in charge of
mining development work for the
Victor Spencer interests of Van.

John E. Swanson Is Mining
Supt. At Butte I. X. L
Mr. John E. Swanson, who was
for many years superintendent of
the Hidden Creek mine at Anyox,
for the Granby Co., has been appointed mining superintendent of
the Butte I. X. L. Gold Mines Ltd.
at Bridge River. He recently left
Vancouver with four experienced
shaft miners and will immediately
take charge of operations.
While most satisfactory progress
has been made in the sinking of
the Butte I. X. L. two-compartment shaft, it is expected that even
faster time will be made under the
direction of Mr, Swanson,
Mr. Swanson is well known in
northern B. C. as a mining man of
great ability. Since leaving Anyox
he has spent several years in
Russia as a mining expert for the
Soviet Government.
American Copper Stocks Are
523,000 Tons
Stocks of refined copper held in
North and South America on January 1,1934, totalled 523,000 tons,
against 572,700 tons a year previous, and 544,278 tons at the beginning of 1932. At the beginning of
1929 the stocks of refined copper
totalled 65,466 tons.
Mine output of copper for the
world during 1933 came to 1,019,-
171 short tons. Production of
refined for the world is estimated
at 945,182 tons.
Canada's Wheat Exports
Canada exported 191,968,861
bushels of wheat during the calendar year 1933, which had a value of
$122,412,686, or an average export
price of 63.8 cents a bushel, according to figures issued recently by the
Dominion Bureau of Statistics.
In 1932 the export volume was
228,219,755 bushels, valued at
$128,385,733, or 56.3 cents a bushel.
P. G. E. Is Making
Good Profit
Preliminary statement of earnings of the Pacific Great Eastern
Railway for 1933 shows an operating profit of nearly $73,000 compared with a deficit on 1932 operations of $68,789.
For the month of December there
was a profit on operation of $14,712
compared with a deficit in December 1932 of $2,541.
Expansion of business in the territory served by the railway is attributable mainly to the mining
activity in the Bridge River and the
Cariboo areas, said Robert Wilson,
executive assistant of the company.
As there is every indication that
the coming years will witness
steady increase in mining in these
areas the outlook for British Columbia's government owned railway
is brighter than at any previous
time in its history.

Chambers of Mines both in Vancouver and Nelson have made representations to the Prime Minister

by the Cobalt Board of Trade,
which is asking the Government to
purchase newly mined silver from
Canadian sources at a price of not
less than 64j4 cents an ounce. The
