Scouts Enjoyed Visit To
The Anyox Boy Scouts and five
Wolf Cubs, accompanied by Scoutmaster Gale and Mrs. Gale return
ed to Anyox recently from Stewart. The boys spent a very pleasant 16 day's holiday. They took
part in the big Stewart celebration
and during the parade they marched before their first movie camera.
Trips were arranged to Premier,
Chicainin Glacier and aboard the
CJ.S.S. Detroit. The weather was
not of the best, but by the kindness of the Canadian Legion, thay
spent many pleasant hours in the
Legion Hall playing badminton,
ping-pong and bowls.. Mrs. O.
Hutchings, a former resident of
Anyox, entertained the boys to
lunch. The Canadian Legion and
Moose Lodge also gave a supper to,
the boys. It was here that the
Scouts found their champion eater
outdone by a small Wolf Cub.
Mrs. Gale aided greatly in the
cookhouse, thus saving many an
empty stomach.
The boys were made very welcome by the people of Stewart,
and left with many invitations to
come again, although there were a
few broken hearts left behind.

Smelter Win From Celts
3 Goals to 0
Tennis Finals On August 30
The Tennis Executive plan on
having all the Tennis Finals on
August 30th after which all the
Cups and prizes will be presented
to the winners. All the contestants
should co-operate with the Executive and get their games played
early to enable all the finals to be
played on Sunday, August 30th.
The Smelter deserved the points
obtained from their victory by 3
goals to 0 over the Celts in the
league game played at the Ball
Ground, Thursday, July 30th.
Swinging the ball from player to
player had the Celts on the defence
most of the first half when all the
three goals were scored. A penalty for "hands" was awarded the
Smelter from which they scored.
Soon afterwards Tom Buchanan,
scored the best shot of the season
with a first time effort from an
excellent pass. Jack Ion beat
Dwyer to obtain the Smelter's
third goal.
In the second half the Celts tried
hard to equal things up but the
Smelter packed their goal and had
a very sound defence. Numerous
corners were taken but not one
could be converted. Geo. Allen
hit the cross bar with a fast shot
and Hunter had no difficulty in
handling the many shots that came
his way. Taylor and Wardrope
were very sound at back while
Jack Ion filled his new position of
centre forward very capably. The
largest crowd of the season wit
nessed this game.
Each team in the football league
has 16 points, the final game  will
be played this month and will pro
vide some very interesting contests.
Anyox Gardens Will Be
Judged This Month
Whether the Community League
Garden Competition is responsible,
or just a natural love of gardening,
we do not know, but certain it is
that the gardens of Anyox are a
treat to behold this year. Flowers
grow where rocks abounded. Barren land is a fairyland. Any old
timer returning to Anyox would be
agreeably surprised to find so
many beautiful gardens. Judging
for the Gardens Competition will
take place some time this month.
Someone with an artistic eye and
a knowledge of gardening is going
to quietly stroll around and inspect
the flower beds, vegetable patches,
lawns, layouts, etc. So keep your
place in trim for the remainder of
August, and then watch for the
announcement of results, which
will be made soon afterwards.
Mining Operations Are
Expanded Esperanza
Mine This Week
Advertise in the Herald
Operations at the Esperanza
mine will be considerably expanded within the next few days. A
compressor plant is now being
installed and machine drills will
take the place of previous handwork.
The compressor plant arrived
from Vancouver on Monday.
Power is derived from a 36 h.p.
Deisel engine. It is a 220 compressor and capable of operating
two drills. The work of installing
the compressor plant is now under
way ;and will be in operatiou
within ten days.
Mr. Harry Bowyer, general
manager, arrived from the south
on Monday. He was accompanied
by W. F. McGovern, who will be
in charge of operations at the
Mr. Bowyer stated that the present plans of tho company are to
extend the No. 9 tunnel in order to
strike the big gold bearing ore
body at depth. This ore body is
12 I'eet wide and high gold values
have been obtained from it. It
has been encountered in No. 7 tun
uel, but the No. 9. tunnel will give
a greater depth on it, which will
be about 115 feet.
An expansion of operations at
the Esperanza will be welcome
news throughout the Alice Arm
district. It means an increased
payroll, and although not large,
will help to relieve the local unemployment problem.
The Esperanza mine has been
known in the past as one of the
most persistent ore shipping mines
in the north. With the installation
of up-to-date mining methods,
there is no doubt but that the
Esperanza will again figure on the
shipping list.
In addition to gold values, the
Esperanza contains ores carrying
silver, lead and tungsten. It is
2\ miles from the government
wharf. It has road connections
with the Dolly Varden Railway,
thus assuring cheap mining and
shipping costs.
W. White, of the hospital staff,
spent a very enjoyable holiday at
Tlell recently. He brings back
some interesting photographs of
that attractive district.

Dr.   Mandy   Reviews
Mining Operations
In District
In the Summary and Review of
the mineral industry of British
Columbia for the six months ended
June 30th, which was recently
issued by the Department of Mines,
a review of each mineral district
was made by the resident engineer.
Dr. J, T. Mandy in his review of
the North Western District states
Prospecting is fairly active generally throughout the district. ln
silver and base-metal areas it is
lagging somewhat, but a marked
increase and intensification in the
search for both lode and placer-gold
deposits is apparent. No discoveries of importance have been reported. An increasing number of
individuals are displaying interest
in the possibilities of likely placer-
gold areas.
The activity of examining engineers is not so marked as in 1930,
although engineers of the larger
operating companies are active in
the field. J. B, Woodworth, associated with Noah Timmins has
optioned the Whitewater group,
Taku River. Exploration and development at smaller operations is
still curtailed, although a fair
average of assessment development is being carried out by individuals.
During the period, operations
were suspended at the Prosperity
and Porter-Idaho silver mines, and
development was stopped on the
Surf Point and Tidewater Molybdenum properties. Development
of the B.C. Silver pending negotiations with the Premier Gold Mining
Company. At the Big Missouri
exploration and development have
been carried on energetically with
conditions about the same as at the
end of 1930.
Development on the Atlin-Ruff-
ner Lead-Silver Mines has continued uninterruptedly, and plans are
laid for an additional expenditure
of $75,000 with the prospective
continuation of operation through
the coming winter and spring.
Development and exploration at
the Hidden Creek mine of the
Granby Company, and Premier
mines are being carried on steadily.
Production from these properties
has been well sustained, with the
Granby Company producing about
2,800,000 lbs. of copper per month.
Increased activity prevails in the
Stikine, Liard and Atlin Divisions
in both lode and placer undertakings. In the Stikine River area the
Barrington Company is installing a
dredge on the North fork of Clearwater river, and expects to have it
digging by the beginning of September. On Dease Creek, the Cassiar Hydraulic Mines Ltd. is working with a crew of twenty men.
Several other operations are active,
and an increased placer-gold output
for 1931 can be expected from the
Stikine-Liard Divisions.
The Atlin section is especially
active, and exceptionally promising
results are being achieved. On
Otter Creek, the Compagnie Fran-
caise des Mines d'Or du Canada
has struck the rim and possibly the
old channel; indications are promising for a continuous pre Juction
from now on. On Ruby creek,
Matson and Schulz picked up a
nugget on July 3rd. weighing 47
oz. 13 dwt. (about 25 per cent of
volume is quartz). Generally exceptionally promising clean-ups
have been realized all round and a
marked increase in placer-gold production from the Atlin seel ion is
indicated for this year. Extensive
road and trail improvement have
been carried out by the Department
throughout the district.

One of the most interesting experiments in the development of
radio telephony yet to conducted
on the Pacific Coast was completed
Fridav when a radio telephone conversation.was carried on from SS
Prince Rupert, of the Canadian
National Steamships Pacific Coast
fleet, and the officials of the company in Vancouver. The experiment was in charge of Cyrus
McLean, transmission Superintendent of the B. C. Telephone Company and B. R. Tupper, radio
engineer of the same company.
Radio telephony has been under
development on the Pacific Coast
for some time and because of recent
developments, the B, C. Telephone
engineers obtained permission to
carry out further tests on SS Prince
Rupert during her regular voyage
up the Inside Passage. Some distance south of Prince Rupert the
set was put into commission anc'
officials of the ship carried on conversations with C. W. Tourtellette,
Assistant to the Pacific Coast Manager, Canadian National Steamships and Percy Baldwin, Auditor.
The voices were quite clear and distinct despite the distance of nearly
five hundred miles. Purser Norman McLean of SS Prince Rupert
said the voices were as clear as if
the call was coming from the next
The telephone officials spent some
lime in Anyox recently, and it is
said that excellent telephone connections were made with Vancouver.
As an experiment, lozenges were

Planning Further Reduction of Copper
New York—With a view to effecting a reduction of about ?5,000
tons a month in tbe world's copper
output representatives of several
large copper companies held a
meeting here. It was reported that
the curtailment plan had been held
in abeyance owing to the strength
of the copper market.
A reduction of 25,000 tons in the
output of copper would be equivalent to a cut of from IS to 20 per
cent.     Last  November represent-

C.W. 18
atives of the world's leading copper
companies agreed to curtail their
monthly output 23,650 tons a
month or about 15 per cent. Despite this curtailment programme,
surplus stocks of copper have continued to grow, and there has been
persistent agitation for another cut.
The combined effect of the two
reductions in output would be a
cut 6i about 30 per cent, in production.
It has been stated that in May
stocks of refined copper in North
and South America increased 30,-
746 tons to 398,667 tons, the largest total in the history of the
copper industry. Another increase
in surplus stocks will be shown for
June when these figures are released early next month, copper executives believe, since most of the
sales of copper in the last ten days1 '
have specified delivery several
months hence.
At the recent conference a representative of the Union Miniere du
Haut Katanga, a large producing
unit in the Belgian Congo, was
present. The output of the new
African copper mines has been one
of the problems faced by the industry. The Katanga company participated in curtailment conference
held last November by the world's
copper producers, and its co-operation in the present series of meetings was regarded as significant,
in view of the Company's large
current output, estimated at more
than 10,000 tons a month.
