Elks Beat Vandals And
Qualify For Finals
Next Week
Hopes of the Vandals A for a
place in the oup finals were crushed on Monday last, when they
went down to defeat before the
swift and well organized Elks who
almost doubled the score or. tlieir
erstwhile victors. The miners
went down like true sports, as the
game was one of tho cleanest we
have seen between looal teams this
season, and this fact will be remembered when tho cup-—whoever
wins it—is forgotten. Vandals
we tie also handicapped, their scoring machine being out of gear
through the absence of Kulai. The
breach was creditably filled by
Windle. Despite 'soaring figures"
—to use our own phrase—they
played the game aud kept smiling.
The Elks played as though inspired, showing in speed and teamwork that was astonishing. With
the same spirit, speed and skill,
plus a fraction more deliberation in
their shots, they will prove tough
customers for the Trojans to haii;
The teams: Vandals A, T. Calderoni 10, F. Calderoni 6, Windle 4,
Gourlay, Woodman, Sanderson 2.1
Elks: Steels 9, MoBryle 14, Davis,
Currie 12. L. Gillies 6. Elks 41,
Vandals 22.
Prince Rupert Is Living
Within Income
For the first time iu its corporate history, the city of Prince Rupert did not have to borrow money
last year from the bank to carry
on its affairs pending the collection
of the years taxeft. With a substantial balance to its credit in the
bank, the city is receiving interest
from the bank this year, instead of
paying it. Half of the year's taxes
of the Canadian National Railways
have been paid in advance. If the
refunding legislation for the city
passes the Legislature at its present
session as originally drafted, the
city stands to save over $1,000,000
in twenty years at existing rates.

Public Spirited Citizen Lost
To Community
Last Monday a citizen was lost
to Anyox who will be greatly missed. ■ We refer to Mr. R. J. A. Manning, who is going to take up a
position at the Relief Arlington
mine. Mr. Manning, who was president of the Anyox Community
League, has always been an active
worker in matters pertaining to the
community. In sports circles especially his loss will be keenly felt.
His many friends in Anyox wish
him the best of luck in his new
sphere. ,
Vandals B Will Enter
Hoop Finals
Fast, clean and close was the
game on Monday last, between
Warriors and Vandals B, in which
the former were nosed out of the
Cup series by the close score of
26-22. Vandals B will now meet,
the FajBudry in the final for this
trophy. The teams kept neck and
neck until the last few minutes,
when a basket apiece by White
and Windle cinched the game for
the Mine.
The teams: Warriors, McDonald
6, Flye 2, Kent 2, Phillips 7, Cadillac 5, Gibson, Thompson.
Vandals B: White. 10, McCloskey 2, Powell, McDonnell, Southey
6, Windle 8, Home, Graham.
J. McConnachie Took Special
Flying Course
J. McConnachie, who returned
last week to Anyox from the East
has just completed a special course
of training in flying. This course
included night flying, instrument
flying, air pilotage and radio-beam
Hying. The course was taken at
Camp Borden and Rockcliff Air
Station, Quebec, and occupied six
weeks. Mr. McConnachie was selected by the government, along
with eleven other airmen from various parts of Canada to take this
special training.

Talk about field shots 1 Tony
Calderoni sunk one in the game
against the Elks last Monday that
was a beaut.
We have seen games when one
team made almost all the shots tell
and games when both teams were
having the toughest luck, but we
never spent such a palpitating
night as last Monday. In all the
games the ball just would not -go
where wanted, and even when it
did it spun round and round first,

Olof Hanson Raises Anyox
Close-down Question At
Any move to close the Anyox
smelter and mine in British Columbia would be a matter for the Provincial Government to look into,
Rt. Hon. Sir George Perley, acting
leader of the government, told the
House of Commons at Ottawa a
few days ago.
He had seen a telegram requesting'the minister of labor to take
the matter into consideration, but
believed it to be primarily the concern of the provincial authorities,
he said. The question was raised
by Olof Hanson (Lib., Skeena,)
who asked if the government had
heard of the threatened closing of
tlie smelter and mine. He claimed
it would throw more than 1000
mon out of employment.

Steady   Shipments   Oi
Radium Ore By
Bringing radium-bearing ores
out of the far North by airplane is
just another example of the resourcefulness of Canadian industry.
With the mine at Great. Bear Lake,
in the sub-Arctic section of the
Northwest Territories, and the refinery at Port Hope, Ontario, nearly
4,000 miles apart, the task of bringing the ore from the mine to the
refinery, presented a difficult situation. Due to the late break up1
last year, which seriously delayed
transportation, it was near the
close of navigation before a supply
of ore for the Port Hope refinery
could be shipped from the mine.
To avoid such a recurrence in future
a large freight airplane has been
acquired which will be used to
transport mill concentrates to the
railhead at Waterways, Alberta,
during the winter months, and thus
ensure an adequate supply of ore
for the refinery.
During 1934 shipments of both
high-grade crude ore and concentrates totalled 83 tons, and the
company reported a production of
ti.l grains of radium during the
year. This was extracted from 61
tons of ore, giving an average content of one gram of radium to 10
tons of ore.
Chamber Of Mines Compiles
List of Mining Companies
A list of 389 mining companies in
British Columbia has been compiled
by the British Columbia Chamber
of Mines, giving the city address,
mine address and name of mine
manager in eaph case. In presenting copies of the list to merchants
and supply houses, Frank E. Wood-
side, manager, stresses the fact that
there is, in the mining industry a
potential market aggregating millions of dollars each year. He requests those participating in this
business, to assist in supporting the
work of the chamber which is helping considerably to promote mining
Canada's total domestic exports
in January, 1935, totalled $43,902,-
1)00. of which $17,529,000 went to
the United States and $16,611,000
tn the United Kingdom.
Production of sugar beets in
Canada during 1934 for use in
sugar refineries amounted to 533,-
000 tons compared with 457,000
tons in 1933.
Copper Mines In Alaska
Still Closed Through
Low Prices
The value of the production of
copper from Alaska, has for many
years been an important item in the
annual inventory of the mineral output of the Territory, amounting to
the enormous total of more than
$214,000,000. With the recent decline in the price of copper, however,
it has no longer been profitable to
continue the operation of the large
Alaska copper mines, and they were
closed down in 1933 and remained
inoperative in 1934. This condition
of course, should not be interpreted
as indicating that these deposits
have been exhausted and have permanently ceased to represent important reserves of copper. It simply means that with copper selling at
only little more than eight cents a
pound, the responsible mine managers felt that it was only the part
of wise business management to cut
off production. Although no Alaska
ores valuable primarily for their
copper content were mined in 1934,
small amounts of the metal were
recovered as a by-product in the
course of treatment of ores whose
principal value lay in their content
of gold or other metals. At most,
however, the value of the copper
was only a few tens of thousands of
Tourists Will View Alexander Mackenzie's Rock
"I now mixed up some Vermillion in melted grease and inscribed
in large characters, on the southeast face of the rock on which we
had slept last night, this brief
memorial: 'Alexander Mackenzie,
from Canada, by land, the twenty-
second of July, one thousand seven
hundred and ninety-three"—from
Mackenzie's Voyages.
On July 22nd., 142 years later to
the very day, the Canadian National Steamships' luxurious "Prince
Robert" will call at Mackenzie rock
on the second of its four Alaska
cruises this summer and celebrate
the anniversary of the white man's
first crossing of the American continent by land north of Mexico.
Apart from its historical significance the call at Mackenzie rock,
far from the regular Alaska steamship lanes, affords an opportunity
for a delightful sail up Dean Channel, one of the picturesque west
coast fiords.

Gold In Cassiar District Says
Stewart Prospector
The Stewart News
There is gold in the Cassiar district. That is the word brought to
Juneau by George Bacon, prospector
who completed a 450-mile trek from
that British Columbia area here
last week.
Although the area is an isolated
one, Bacon believes that the exhibition of gold he saw there last summer, indicates that the Cassiar may
become one of the important mineral
districts of the north.
"I saw from 15 to 16 quartz
veins," Bacon said. "There was
visible free gold in many of them.
I should say that, roughly, the district included about 20 square miles.
When I left, several miners were
planning to spend the winter there.
Plenty of game and fowl will give
them sufficient food supply."

Three Major Canadian Problems
Tariff, agriculture and railway situation discussed by E. W. Beatty,
K.C., LL.D., Chairman and President, Canadian Pacific
Railway—Urges unified effort to solve questions
threatening integrity of State.
Aiariff structure bac:3 solely Pointing out that the Canadian
uiioii tho actual economic people pay for the railway services which thoy receive, and all
t'.:o costs ot Government, Mr.
i-:atty emphasized that the railway problem wa3 in reality the
iu-oblem of every individual citi-
:;:n. Tbe cost to the public in
freight charges of moving a ton
:\ ;.".ile in Canada was as low as
In any major country in the
World. Unhappily the full advantage of these low rates was
not retained because taxes paid,
or to be paid, to meet the annual
deficits of the Canadian National
Railways must be added to the
r.etual freight charges. The real
cost of transportation in Canada
was not as cheap as it seemed to
bo, or as it should be. Two current suggestions for improvement in operating efficiency
were, first, the adoption ot modernistic equipment, and secondly,
a drastic reduction in wages.
Owing to the huge investment in
existing equipment, and the difficulty of finding capital to finance new equipment, he indicated
that progress along the lines of
the first suggestion would of
necessity be slow.
Mr. Beatty argued Btrongly
against reduced wages, and polnt-
od out that railway employees
spent wages as well as earned
them. He felt that railway as
well as other wages were out of
line with the returns to the farmers for their labor, but emphasized his belief that the remedy
lay in an increase in the farmers'
earnings rather than a lowering
of the standard of living among
railway workers.
Another suggested solution was
the proposal to increase freight
rates. The freight rate trend was
downward, and Mr. Beatty would
greatly regret to see an increase
in rates until everything possible
was done to eliminate waste,
The argument that there was no
waste in transportation and all
that the country needed to do was
to await the return of prosperity
was not, Mr. Beatty considered,
pound. Restoration of business
to the high levels of 1925-1929,
would not come as a gift of Heaven, or overnight, but only as a
result of national industry and
Mr. Beatty replied to arguments that under his unii'ication
proposal the Canadian Pacific
would take over tbe assets of the
Canadian National while the liabilities would be left to the Government.
"Unified management will do
nothing of the kind. The physical
assets of the Canadian National
will remain the property of its
owners. Similarly the liabilities
of the Canadian National must
remain the responsibility of the
Government and the liabilities of
the Canadian Pacific must remain
that of its owners. However, if
the assets of both companies are
administered hy a unified management an end will be put to
the waste of competition and the
owners of the Canadian National
will receive more money with
which to meet their obligations."
The fact that only 2% of the
excessive debt of the Canadian
National Railways was due to the
errors of private capitalists, or
any arguments dealing with
errors either private or Governmental would not help the situation of today. Interest charges
on the Canadian National debt
which in 1919 were $38,000,000,
last year were $92,000,000. No
man capable of facing facts believed that the country could
"I may say," he added, "without I carry   tho   burden   indefinitely.
tariff struotur.o bac:3 solely
upon tho actual economic
ncccb of (he country; a t!cc;ier
appreciation of nad a wider and
mcro active cpiilication of sym-
rai''Cti(!ally intelligent tlioutf'.t to
',£3t'ic"Uui'ar problems; and the
uaUbation c* Canadian railroads
far the puvpoao of operation r.3
i'.io enly mssann of overcoming tin
proacat. Gtastrous thbt [Structure
created through public ownership, were the three major
themes emphasized by E. W.
Beatty, K.C.,
LL.D., Chairman and President, Canadian
Pacific Railway, during
the course of
a forcoful outline of this
problems before the Regina Board of
Trade on February 5th.
Basing his appeal upon the
L.iaii-mnn mt 1 l'n!fii(ierit firm fnnnrln-
Canadiau 1-aciHcKV. ) im l«Unt»a-
tlon that a
"servioe of individuals, individual
frioups, and sections of the country to the whole State is the only
safe road for the future", Mr.
Beatty appealed to the country at
large to make this theme the
dominating note in approaching
the problems of the day.
Again voicing his sincere belief
in the ultimate destiny of Canada,
Mr. Beatty emphasized the necessity of a mutual understanding
between all sections of the country, and insisted that should this
objective be achieved, the unified
effort of all citizens would go far
toward solving problems which
now threaten the integrity of the
State. >
In the light of this argument
Mr. Beatty felt that he had every
right to discuss the tariff, citing
the fact that the Canadian Pacific
Railway was most decidedly susceptible to the effects of unstable
tariff conditions. "Give me a
tariff policy advantageous to the
Canadian National Railways and
I shall be quite content," he said,
Mr. Beatty was neither a believer in protection with no limit
nor in free trade. He believed in
the maximum of national wealth
fairly distributed among the citizens. The Canadian tariff should
be one which would keep ojr internal and external trade combined at a maximum.
Mr. Beatty illustrated his argument by citing the fact that Canada enjoyed a greater foreign
commerce per capita than either
of the two more important American Republics, namely the
United States and the Argentine,
and said that he would like to
see the preparation of a tariff
balance sheet which would give
an analysis of the effect of the
tariff on the total income and
purchasing power of the Canadian
people, and urged that in view of
the present position of capital
and labor, an examination of the
economic soundness of our tariff
policy should look to future improvement rather than to drastic
attempts to correct past errors.
Emphasizing that agriculture
was the primary industry, aud
voicing his appreciation that
agriculture in Western Canada
was passing through a period of
great difficulty, Mr. Beatty said
that Governmental assistance and
that of private business institutions had on the whole, been constructive.
boasting, that, the emergency reductions in freight rates voluntarily made by the Canadian
Pacific Railway for farm relief
during the past five years represent a loss in income to us of at
least $3,000,000."
There were two necessary
measures looking toward permanent rccovory. First there was
what the farmer could do and
was doing for himself, to make
the farm home largely self-supporting through the use of better
seed, improved methods, and tho
expansion of live-stock operations. Secondly there was what
others could do to help Western
agriculture. The capital invested
in the farms of Canada must receive returns if any Important
block of capital was to be regarded as safe. Other labor could not
hope for the permanence of a
level of wages too high above the
earnings of labor on the land.
Mr. Beatty expressed unswerving
confidence that private business
would find a road, now being
eagerly sought, whereby it could
render ^material assistance to
'We, the people of Canada, owe
directly or indirectly to private
capitalists, over $2,700,000,000, on
recount of the Canadian National
Railways system. We are going
to pay this because we promised to.
"Are you going to allow your
judgment to be warped by complex arguments about doing justice to public ownership? Or are
you going to agree with me to
l^ave the ownership of tho Canadian National Railways in the
hands of the public — since they
could not possibly get rid of it—
",:d devote our entire energy to
finding; a method of making the
burden of this ownership aB light
as possiblo to tho people of Canada?
"Taking it that as business
mon you will not wish to gamble
with a burden of railway deficits
which already threatens .the financial [liability of the nation
when a reasonable alternative Is
available, I have suggested what
seems to me to be the only adequate course — the unified management of tho two major railway
systems. Tho amount which can
be saved annually — now, not la
some bright day to come — was
calculated by officers of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, and
their figures tallied closely with
those given to the Royal Commission by the late Sir Henry Thornton, and by Mr. S. W. Fair-
weather of the Canadian National
Railways. My estimate was
based on the traffic conditions of
1930, an average traffic year, and
on that basis I put the figure at
$75,000,000. Sir Henry Thornton,
who opposed my plan, gave his
estimate as $60,000,000 and Mr.
Fairweather   suggested   $56,000,--
000 for a year nf normal traffic.
In justice to Mr. Fairweather I
must state that he has since said
that he told the Commission that
his estimate could not he realized.
1 believed then and believe now
that mine can be."
Mr. Beatty said his proposal
had met with much criticism, —
that no one group of men could
properly administer the unified
railways; that he was talking of
setting up a great monopoly;
that rates might be raised; and
that he proposed to throw thousands of men out of work. Mr.
Beatty disposed of these criticisms by pointing to the efficiency and loyalty of the employees
of both railways; to the supervising body set up by the Canadian
Government to control railway
rates, and in connection with
labor, solemnly pledged himself
to do everything he could within
his power to prevent such a development. Savings in this regard would be made gradually,
wisely, and considerately, and
without hardship to those now
dependent on railway employment.
He said: "It is indeed my
hope and belief that the methods
which I suggest will operate to
prevent an even more disastrous
period of low wages and unemployment than that through
which we are passing. Surely
the labor leaders ot this country are the intelligent men that I
have always found them to be
and will tell their constituents
that waste of the country's
wealth on useless services can
damage no one more certainly
■ind more severely than those
Vio depend on their labor for
ii.eir living. I venture the prophecy that as events develop and
the increased thought being given
to the subject produces its effect,
railway employees generally, and
particularly the recognized representatives of organized labor
which forms such a considerable
part of railway staffs, will not
only recognize the inevitability
of, but will come to urge rather
than to oppose some such measure as I have suggested as in
their own best Interest."
Stressing that the report of the
recent Royal Commission stated
that some of the Commissioners
would have preferred a plan
which would take the Government ot Canada out ot the railway business; and that the Canadian Pacific was not a bankrupt
undertaking, but on the other
hand a thoroughly solvent one,
Mr. Beatty went on to say:
"What I have suggested, and
suggest today, is that we should
plan to divide the net earnings of
the unified properties to give to
each group of owners the-net
earnings which would have resulted if each had operated their
own railway, together with a fair
share of the savings resulting
from unification. There is much
misunderstanding in this regard.
Many have confused the total net
earnings after unification with the
savings from unification. The
earning power of the two separate systems is a matter of record. The increased earning
power of the combined properties
arising irom unification is another matter. My plan contemplates the division of such increased earnings on a fair basis.
This is a matter wbich can only
be settled by negotiations between the interested parties but
obviously the shareholders of the
Canadian Pacific would have to
concede to the Government at
least one-half of the net gain resulting from unified management.
Thoso who have said the C4na-
dian Pacific would claim the
lion's share have either misunderstood my proposal or purposely misrepresented It."
In conclusion, Mr. Beatty again
pointed out that if such a plan
had been adopted 20 years ago, or
even 15 years ago, the national
debt of the country would be
hundreds of millions of dollars
less than It was today. "You and
your children will pay it. Are
you in favor ot piling it up}"

With Trojans Junr.
Armed to tlie teeth, the Pirates

a twenty minute battle, after which
the Pirates gradually gained the
upper hand. The score at the close
was 15 to 7 in favor of the Pirates.
The teams: Trojans Jnr., J. McMaster, Walter Uchitz, H. Dodsworth 2, L. Murdoch 3, N. McDonald 1, J. Varnes 1. Pirates:
R. Dresser 3, R. Kent 8, B. McMaster 2, Wardrope 2, Rudland, C.
Spooks Defeat Mine G.
By One Basket
Hopes of the Mine Girls for a
possible chance in the finals of the
ladies' games for the Cup, were
dashed to the ground, in the last
minute of the game with the Spooks
on Monday last, when Dora Grigg
neatly scored the winning counter.
Spooks staged a come-back in the
second half, as at the breather the
score stood 10-4 against them.
Checking closely and playing fast,
they caught up in the last few
minutes and it looked like an overtime session, when Helen Calderoni
made a miss-pass, and D. Grigg
snapped the ball and scored. It
was a good clean, willing go with
the teams well matched.
The teams: Mine Girls, H. Calderoni 3, J. Roberts 4, P. Arscott 2.
E. Morris 2, V. Wenerstrom 2.
Spooks: J. McDonald 4, T. Gordon, K. Eve 5, H. Glass, D. Grigg
4, N. Salmon 2. Spooks now meet
the Aces, in the final for the Cup.
Mine Girls Winners In
Fast Game
Supporters cf the Mine Girls—
the team which has survived a long
series of defeats—were elated on
February the 8th. when the girls
in orange and black defeated the
Spooks 23-16 'n a league fixture.
The score stood 10-all at the halfway mark, and from then on the
teams kept abreast until
shortly before the close, when
shots by Morris, Roberts and Wenerstrom made it a sure thing fo
the Mine Girls. P. Arscott and J
Roberts were the bright lights of
the team, while K. Eve and D.
Grigg shone for the Spooks.
The teams: Spooks, K. Eve 10,
N. Salmon, J. McDonald 2, N.
Wenerstrom, H. Glass, D. Grigg 4.
Mine Girls, E. Morris 4, J. Roberts
10, P. Arscott 5, Y. Cannon, V.
Wenerstrom 4, H. Calderoni.
Trojans Defeat Vandals
In Close Game
With the score standing 15 to 7
against them at half-time, the Trojans uncorked some nice stuff in
the second half to win 28-23 over
the Vandals, in the final league
game on Friday the 8th. Vandals
were out in strength with the exception of Kulai, whose place was
taken by Heinekey, who played his
last and probably his best on the
local floor. The splendid checking
of the Vandals guard line brought
out the resources of the Trojans.
Well into the second stanza the
Trojans pulled even and passed
their opponents. An unfortunate
incident marred the game, when
there were but five seconds to play,
two players "mixing it." The erring ones quickly made up and the
game was completed. The teams:
Vandals A, F. Calderoni 6, T. Calderoni 6, Heinekey 8, Gourlay 2,
Woodman 1,   Saaman.      Trojans,
Gillies 15, Gordon,  Shields 3,  McDonald 6, Dodsworth, Dresser 4.

In common with other parts of
the Dominion, gold mining' in the
Yukon during- 1934 was greatly
stimulated by the continued high
price for the yellow metal and the
encouraging results obtained from
prospecting and development work
in 1933. A report issued by the
Canadian Department of mines indicates that activity in both placer
and lode mining- was widespread
and intensive.
The recovery of gold from the
alluvial sands and gravels of the
rivers and streams in the Yukon
has been greatly facilitated by the
use of dredges, and this change
from hand to power methods is a far
cry from the clays of the famous
Klondike gold rush in 1897-98.
During 1934 five dredges were operated in the Klondike area and
handled over six million cubic yards
of gravel during the season, a considerable increase over the preceding
During the shipping season 1933-
34, Canada exported 3,486,114
barrels of apples, breaking all previous records.
