Year 1935 Born Midst
Enthusiasm And
If the year 1935 develops in proportion to its vigor and robustness
as an infant, it will be healthy and
hearty enough for anyone. Irt
Anvox its advent at the Gymnasium
was hailed by one of the biggest
New Year crowds ever assembled
in that building. The stroke of
twelve found everyone formed in
two giant circles, with hands clasped, ready to join in singing "Auld
Lang Sync." When tbe well-
known song was concluded, out
came Father Time, scythe and all,
followed by a lusty and muscular
infant duly labelled "1935." "Slim"
Yelland was the bew.hiskered re
presentative of the reaper, while
Pete Chenoski typified the New
Year. This simple and cleverly
done little act brought rounds of
applause from the crowd present.
The evening was one of merriment right through until the "Home
Waltz" was played somewhere
around 4 a.m. Everyone was
happy and gay and none were over-
buoyant. It was estimated that
nearly five hundred people partook
of the splendid turkey supper which
was served. Dancing commenced
quite early to the strains of Bun-
tain's Orchestra, who supplied the
music for the first half of the evening, the second half being taken
care of by the Elks' Orchestra under
the leadership of Frank Allan.
These two orchestras were very
popular with the dancers and were
most generous' with their numbers
and encores.
The decorations, carried out in
the Elks' colors of purple and white
and also with evergreen, reflected
great credit upon the committee in
charge. During' the evening the
guests were supplied with an abundance of fancy hats and caps, noise'
makers, and novelties, a colorful
and joyous scene being then pre
sented. The event was one which
will long remain as a happy memory
■to those who were present.

Alice Arm Faces The Future
With Optimism
The sun of prosperity did not
shine very brightly on Alice Arm
during the past year. There were
not any mining operations oarried
on during 1934, and no one was
sorry when the old year had died
and a new one born. Everyone
looks with optimism to the future
and hopes that this year will see
the commencement of major min
ing operations that will continue
for many years to come, and as
they continue will increase in
Pioneer Mess   Annual
Dinner Was Well
Instituted in 1928, the annual
Pioneer Mess Dinner and Dance
has tlow attained its fullest maturity, and ranks among tlie most
important of the social functions
in the town of Anyox. The original idea of the prompters of this
popular social event was to provide
a special treat for the regular diners at the hostelry, and to afford
them an opportunity of entertaining their friends at their owi
special function. The event has
grown more and more popular each
year, and the one held on Friday,
^December 28th., found the prem
ises taxed to capacity.
An elaborate and most enjoyabli
dinner was served in the spacious
dining-hall, after which the guests
adjourned to the library for dancing. During the evening fancy
caps and other novelties were distributed; and the hall became a
scene of colorful animation which
will not soon be forgotten. Snappy

Loudon, a Cub, he having won the
prize for collecting medicine bottles
for the Hospital.
Sixteen quarts of Ginger Beer,

Anyox Scouts Good Acts
At Christmas
As was done last year, the Anyox
Boy Scouts undertook the work of
collecting toys for needy families.
A great many toys of all kinds were
collected, the majority of these being sent to the Scouts Headquarters
Toy Shop in Vancouver for repairs
and finishing. A few parcels were
sent to northern points, and a
special parcel was shipped to Alice
Arm. Tbe Scouts did good work
with these toys, all of which were
greatly welcomed wherever they
were sent.
Oiice again the Scouts were to
the front in helping to reduce the
piles of parcels at the Post Office
during the Christmas rush. This
is the sixth year in which this work
has been undertaken by these willing boys, and needless to say, it is
greatly appreciated by the Post
Oflice staff and public alike.

Stewart Snow Plough Goes
To Premier Mine
The Stewart News
The big red snow plough, sometimes termed the battleship, was
given a good try-out this week,
having been driven through to
Premier, Wednesday and back
Thursday. The idea was more to
make a trial run over the road, as
it was possible some of the curves
would be found too sharp. James
Comer was at the controls, assisted
by Charles Young, 'under supervision of Hugh McDonald.
Having completed for the season,
the Canadian North-eastern Railway construction camp at American
Creek closed down during the past
week-end. Chief Engineer A. McCulloch and Construction Superintendent Angus Nicholson left for
the south on the George yesterday,
the former,expecting to arrive at his
home in Penticton for Christmas.
Mrs. H. Nuoioh arrived home at
Alioe Arm on Thursday after
spending holidays at Anyox with
her daughter, Mrs. J. McColl.

The razor ranks with the collar1
.stud as a butt for jokes, yet bronze
razors were in use in Roman times
and half a dozen distinct types have
been    unearthed    and    preserved.
This is one of the points in the
history of copper revealed in "Copper Through the Ages,'' just published by the Copper Development
Association. Copper was one of
the first metals to be employed by
man, and it seems certain that the
secret of working it has been in the
possession of mankind for at least
fifty thousand years.
Traces of copper workings, dating
back to 6000 B. C., have been found
in Persia, Turkey, Palestine and
Egypt. The Romans made considerable use of copper for statues and
objects of art, vessels, furniture,
domestic and architectural articles,
artificial limbs, and surgical instruments. During the time of the
Romans, brass—an alloy of copper
and zinc—appeared forthe first time
probably accidentally. The historv
of copper in the British Isles, dates
back many centuries, for it was
firmly established before the Roman
invasion. The Romans vied with
the Phoenicians for the trading ot
copper, exported from Cornwall.
By the thirteenth century London
wes an important centre for bell and
ordnance founding, though a large
part of the copper was imported.
An Act was passed in 1689 which
gave everybody the right to mine
copper, and brass and copper began
to be used extensively for every
type of object from thimbles to
cannons. At the end of the eighteenth century Great Britain was the
largest producer of copper in the
Boulton and Watt were now at
the height of their fame and a vast
amount of brass was required for
cylinders and other parts of pumping engines.
As the number of uses increased,
it became impossible for individual
craftsmen to possess all the tools
and patterns, which were required
for their production, and the trades
became specialized, with the result
that at the beginning of the nineteenth century, there existed a
large number of special trades such
as hinge makers, valve makers,
hatpin makers, and so on.
This article will be concluded
next week.

Increased Output
Makes Low Prices
Will copper producing companies
of Canada, Africa and South
America hold a conference and decide to curtail production, as reported some time ago, is a question
in which everyone in this district is
concerned. For their own mutual
benefit they should not continue
over-production and keep prices at
the present low level. They could
just as easily obtain 12 cents a
pound instead of 6 if they regulated
production equal to consumption.
The chief cause of over-production,
not only in regard to copper, but
also all other base metals, is, that
the higher tonnage produced, the
lower the overhead cost. For instance if a mining company is operating a 3000 ton mill and then
doubles its capacity, it does not
double the cost of milling or smelting. This procedure works quite
satisfactorily if only a few companies
indulge in it, but when a few follow
this course, others are forced to
follow in order to be able to compete with the lowered prices. The
result is still further lowered prices,
which spells disaster for all, and
when even the most favored company is feeling the effects by lowered dividends or none at all, a
eonference is held to regulate

What Mining Means To
British Columbia
B. C. Financial Times.
Our new Provincial Mineralogist,
Dr. J. F. Walker, at the initial ses-1
sion of the Canadian Institute of
Mining and Metallurgy fall meeting,
held recently in Vancouver, has
estimated the Provincial production
of mineral at $41,863,150, an increase of 28J^ per cent, over the
previous year. Of this amount,
gold contributes the largest, with
a production of about $10,500,000
in Canadian funds.
What we wish to point out is the
importance to the economic position
of the Province of this mineral production. Dr. Walker estimates the
dividends to be paid by four mines
will total about $4,500,000, but it
is likely that the dividends to be
paid out by all mines will approximate something over $5,000,000,
or in other words 12^ per cent, of
the gross output. Since a considerable portion of these dividends
will be paid to British Columbia
citizens, there will be that much increased purchasing power. The
balance of the production, or exceeding $36,000,000, has or will go
into wages, supplies, machinery and
equipment, and not by any means
least, taxation to the Provincial
government as well as the Dominion.
This $36,000,000 odd millions,
with the exception of some machin-
inery and equipment which has to
be brought in from Eastern Canada
or the United Slates, has all been
or will be spent in British Columbia,
giving profit and employment to almost every industry and trade in
the Province, either directly or indirectly. Our mining industry is
probably contributing more this
year to our economic welfare and
aiding us to arise out of the depression than any other industry dependent upon natural resources. It is unfortunately, however, a wasting asset and must so
be considered by the public as well
as by our legislatures, who have
been, and are looking on it as a
source of revenue by way of tax
Consolidated Co. Pays Good
Dividend disbursement of Consolidated Mining & Smelling Co,
for the last six months of 1934 wil!
be $1,166,966. Payment will be
made December 31st. to shareholders of record December 15th. This
dividend is at the rate of 4 per cent
for six months and a bonus of $1 a
share on each of the 536,184 shares
issued. This amount compares
with $660,793 for the first six
months of 1934.
Consolidated M & S Co. started
paying dividends in 1923 and the
disbursement at the end of this
month will bring the aggregate
dividends to $46,613,740.

The estimated world output of
silver in September is 14,974,000
ounces or 499,133 per day as compared with August total of 15,481,-

Mexico's production decreased
6.7 per cent to 6,098,000 ounces
from the preceding months output
of 6,536,000. The United States
produced 1,786,000 ounces a decline
of 14.4 per cent from the August

Radio Compass Aids Canadian Shipping
Scieace has come to the aid of fog-bound mariners
through the medium of the radio beacon or "lighthouse of the air". Its beam is picked up by a special
receiver mounted in the chart-room, called a Radio

by radio is that the bearings are not affected by storm
or fog, as are visual bearingc.

Canada Trade Recovery
Under Way
Across Canada's business front a
prosperity drive is under way and
results show that the first ten
months of 1934 have been unquestionably a period of definite economic recovery, according' to a report issued by the Dominion Bureau
of statistics. The betterment of
1933 was unmistakably extended
during the present year; and most
of the major factors have advanced
to the highest levels reached since
Canadian business encountered the
The trend of business operations,
reflecting tbe actual volume of production in a wide variety of industries, is the most significant factor
considered in this connection. The
business index expressed as a percentage of the base year of 1926
averaged 94.2 in the first ten
months ol 1934, compared with78.5
in the same period of the preceding-
year, The gain of 20 per cent
represents a marked advance over
the levels of 1933, especially in

took place in the later months of

During the past two years the
Coniston smelter has been rehabilitated and operations revived on
Creighton ore, which is now averaging roughly 40,000 tons per
inonth. The monthly ore production, from the Frood Mine, amounting to approximately 160,000 tons,
