Tuesday March 28th., and 29th.
They will be given twice daily at
3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Dr. Mandy is very familiar with
the geology and ore occurrences of
the district, having made an ex
haustive study of them during his
visits here, and his lectures should
prove very interesting and instructive, especially to owners of mining
Soldiers' Pensions Board
Official Visit Anyox
" Mr. E. S.-Keeling,"of Vancouver
Pension and advocate for the Dominion Government, stopped off at
Anyox on Monday last and met
representatives of the Canadian
Legion. He had time to enquire
into two or three cases concerning
soldiers' pensions, and purposes
visiting Anyox in the near future.
It was learned that there will be a
Pensions Board held- at Anyox
some time in July. Ex-service men
of the district who have matters
concerning pensions or medical
treatment to bring forward are ask'
ed to get in touch with the secretary of the Canadian Legion, who
will in turn communicate with Mr.
On. a recent visit to Prince Rupert ninety-five cases were handled,
and many men who had not been
receiving disability pensions were

receive same. This was chiefly
brought about through the co-operation of the Canadian Legion with
with Mr. Keeling.

Company, meeting in New York
last week, omitted the regular
quarterly dividend, stockholders

dong go, and the last quarter as
exciting a game as has ever been
witnessed in Anyox.
The Premier team was in excellent form, and every man was keen
to secure the honors of the series.
Ed. Smith was their "shooting
star," scoring five baskets. J.
Curzon, the steady reliable and
the speedy Stewart got three apiece.
S. Smith also secured one.
The Anyox boys were just as keen
and willing. Time and again they
came close to making further
scores, but luck seemed against
them for once. Dodsworth and
Sanderson were thoroughly reliable
at guard, while Steele and Calderoni shone on the forward line, the
latter securing three baskets and
the former two. Dwyer made three

The budget, which was presented to the Legislature last week
by Hon. J. W. Jones, minister of
finance, is proving a bitter pill to
swallow. Heavier taxes are to be
imposed, and the people of British
Columbia are now asked to pay
for the spending orgy indulged in
by the governments of the province for the past ten or fifteen
years. The credit of the province
has been stretched almost to the
breaking point. A halt has now
been called and the work of repairing the damage will commence.
Not for several years will the government be able to pose as the
benevolent old gentleman who
scattered wealth with a lavish
hand whenever requested. The
people of the province now realize
that they are the ones who eventually have to pay. The limit is
reached in regard to borrowing
money. The provincial gross
debt is $142,461,483. A stupendous sum for our small population. Last year the debt was increased by $12,187,322, but this
was due principally to the large
sum of money spent in caring for
the unemployed, and also to falling
revenues. The lavish expenditures of individuals, municipalities
and governments have ceased.
Individuals ceased reckless spending over two years ago. Municipalities last year realized the perilous position in which they were
being placed, and now the Provincial Government seems to be fully
awake to the gravity of the financial situation of the province.
Individuals have long learned to
live within their income. Mining
companies and others, through
necessity, have cut their expenditures in every conceivable way, so
that they may carry on. The
Provincial Government is also forced to follow suit or become bankrupt. It is an illusion to think that
all the Government has to do
when funds are low is to raise the
taxes. Taxes cannot be paid if
the people have not the money to
pay them. There is a limit to tax,
raising. The higher taxes are'
raised at the present time the less
money will be paid in the treasury.
The only way in which the present Government can extricate
themselves from the present financial difficulty is to adopt the
policy of the individual and live
within their income.

British   Picture  Films
May Oust American
The Motion Picture public is
waking up to the fact that the
British pictures may outdistance
I |the Hollywood product both in
quality and quantity, judged by
recent showings of British pictures
this country and America.
These productions have been of the
highest quality.
The tremendous strides made by
British pictures in the past three
months are evident in British features like "The Speckled Band,"
'The Skin Game,''and ''Uneasy
With the next twelve months
British pictures may become Hollywood's most serious menace to the
international market. This may
sound absurd to the American
whose only idea of the English
talkies is the crude stuff that was
being shipped a year ago, but it is
known as a very real fact, judged
by present-day showings.
British producers report plans to
turn out 200 full length features in
1932. This output will be the
second largest in the world.
The British film companies are
establishing exchanges in Europ
ean countries. Hollywood's grip
on Europe ended with the silent
film. Of the 200 films to be made
in England in 1932 it is estimated
that 72 will have either French or
German versions. Hollywood's
attempt to make foreign language
versions has been a dismal failure,
due to high costs and incompetence.
Both political parties—Conservative and Liberal—are inclined to
blame the people of the Province
for the present heavy Provincial
debt. We are to blame to a
large extent for allowing the Governments of the past fifteen years
to so enormously increase the debt
without any remonstrance whatever, we should therefore be somewhat sparing in our criticism, We
condoned the policy of borrowing
when times were good. The
miserly Government who withheld funds for numerous projects
when called upon to disburse
them was not popular. We
dem' d.d government assistance
in a thousand different ways and
we got it. We now have
the pleasure of paying for it.
The present depression should
teach us a lesson.  But will it?

Heavy Snows May Produce
Spring Floods
Owing to the heavy snowfall and
the great depth of ice on streams
and rivers in the interior heavy
spring freshets and summer floods
are feared by the settlers. The
bridge over the Fraser River at
Quesnel is usually 40 feet above
water. Latest reports show that
the ice is now about eight feet
from the bridge, and plans are
being considered to dynamite the
pack before the spring movement
B. C. May Compete In Egg
The possibility of a market in
Great Britain for B,, C, eggs in the
form of frozen pulp, is pointed out
by the Hon. T. G. Coventry, Markets Representative, in a letter to
Mr. W. W. Duncan, Director of the
market Division. It is pointed
out that at present the Chinese
sell from 40,000 to 46,000 tons per
annum of this egg pulp in the
United Kingdom at about £70 per
ton, and there is no difficulty about
its preservation in cold storage.
It is used largely in baking aud
cooking, and appears to offer an
outlet for surplus eggs.

British Columbia was the leading producer
of Silver, Lead and Zinc.
In this Province, 45 per cent, of Canada's
silver, 97 per cent, of the lead, and 93 per
cent of the zinc were produced.
British Columbia has produced over $1,260,-

Malo, thus saving a
long trip through local
terminals and speeding up their journey to
Montreal and their
respective destinations
beyond.    The signal
system in connection with the new tunnel is of particular interest, for it not only handles
trains through the tunnel and on to the main line, but covers tramline and railway crossings which are made on the way to the tunnel mouth at the land end. A signal cabin on
the main line, at the outskirts of the city, houses the control system. The operator faces
a board, shown in the top picture, which consists of a number of electric levers for
opening and closing switches and also has 20 rotary buttons, for operating the lights of
a like number of signals at various points on the trackage covered. By the same board,
the operator is able to locate his train or trains at any moment. It will be noted that the
control board is practically a map of the tunnel tracks, the numbers on it corresponding
to those on the signal posts. The line running down the board is the tunnel and tho
lines across the top of it representee tracks of the mainline. The Signals to engineers
, from the posts are made by means of red, yellow and green lights, indicating "stop",

Montreal Symphony Orchestra On Air
This is the Montreal Symphony Orchestra which will
broadcast a Fireside Symphony Hour every Saturday between 6.30 and 6.80 p.m. E.S.T., starting
Saturday, Feb. 21, over the network ot the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company's Telegraphs from Winnipeg
to Halifax. It will play symphony concerts of a very
high order and the conductor, Mr. Douglas Clarke,
Dean of the Faculty of Music, McGill University,
(inset) has drawn up a series of programmes which will
be representative of three centuries of music.
The programmes will be chronological in character
and each will be representative of music written
between the 17th, century and the present. They will
begin with works or part of works by Bach, Handel,
Haydn or Mozart, continue with Beethoven or Brahms,
then go on to Wagner or Tschaikowsky, and conclude
with the moderns. English composers will be prominent
tn ths eoncerts, including such moderns as Elgar, Hoist
and Vaughan Williams, while an early English Tudor
composer will also be heard.
In this way the concerts will be representative of
the best in music for the last three centuries, in which
the art of composing reached its height, and every
listener f ohYwhg the ten programmes already projected
will acquire a knowledge of music which it would take
the ordinary concert goer years to get, apart from the
enjoyment of listening.
The Montreal Symphony orchestra has earned high
praise from critics, and its range of subject matter as
well as its perfection in technique is remarkably well
developed. The concerts will be broadcast from Tudor
Hall, in Montreal, and are made possible by the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
