Anyox P. T. A. Meeting
Addressed By Rev.
An unusually successful meeting
of the Anyox Parent Teacher Association was held on Monday evening. A new feature of the meetings
is the presentation of brief reviews
of literature of interest to the members. This literature is in part purchased by the Community League.
The reviews ut Monday's meeting
were ably presented by Mrs. Cutler,
convener of the study committee,
Mrs. McMaster and Mrs. Lee.
Periodicals employed were: The
Parents' Magazine, The New Era,
The Canadian Child, Hygeia and
Progressive Education.
The address of the evening was
delivered by the Rev. J. S. Brayfield
on the topic "Modern Parents".
The speaker quoted ex-Judge Ben
Lindsay concerning "the need for a
better parenthood in these intensive
days." He blamed the undue variety of interests engaging many parents for their failure to rear creditable offspring. Body, mind, and
spirit—each requires adequate
culture. Post-war materialism, he
said, Was a factor with which the
faithful parent must contend. In
spiritual things a good example is
the best instrument in upward development. The temptation to
"make things easy for the kids" is
mischievous. Discipline and individual responsibility e essential
to the building up of dependable
character. "Train up a child in the
way he should go and when he is
old he will not depart from it."
At the business session tho association approved the action of the
executive in providing cocoa for the
school children during the recent
trying weather. Parents will be
asked whether they wish to contribute ten cents a week toward continuing this service for their children.
The motion picture arranged by
the League will be Harold Lloyd in
"Welcome Danger" about March
11 tli or 13th. The committee in
charge of arrangements includes
Mrs. Patrick, Mrs. McMaster and
Mrs. Cloke.
The pictures framed locally at the
association's expense for the high
school were on display and much
Don't Forget The Arts and
Crafts Exhibition
Those who have trained or are
training themselves in any of the

exhibits from as great a number of
activities as possible. Wood-work,
metal-work, needle-work, and the
products of brush and pencil will
all be welcomed.

quality of play is greatly improved.
In the week-end game, the Ex-
High played their best game of the
season, dropping the decision to
the Oddfellows by only three points

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
We would commend to the
Minister of Mines the desirability
of having the District Engineers
give particulars of the results being
obtained on properties which are
operated under control of the large
mining companies. The small fry
and the prospector have their holdings reported on in detail. A large
amount of speculation is carried on
in stocks of companies which are
under control of the large mining
companies. The investor is given
no information as to results of work,
the sole guide being rumors circulated by word of mouth. Even
reports of the company engineers
are not forthcoming except through
the head office of the controlling
companies, and then in a form
which is expurgated. If the Department of Mines is wedded to
the policy of giving information on
mines it should insist on obtaining
the results from all properties under
development or operation—Mining
and Industrial Record.
Still Mining Lead In England
Lead mining in Derbyshire, England, is more active, particularly at
the Mill Close mine, which had been
operating on a limited scale. At a
depth of 550 ft., a new deposit of
lead has been found, and night and
day shifts are being worked.
Silver Production Has
Increased and Price
Since iy00, the world production
of silver has increased about 75,-
000,000 oz. and the price has decreased about 17 cents per oz.
From 1901 to 1907 the world production averaged annually approximately 177,103,840 oz. and the
price averaged .596 cents. From
1921 to 1927 world production averaged annually 229,824,000 oz.,
and despite this increase, the price
averaged .6419 cents per oz. 1928
production was 252,187,000 oz. and
the price dropped to .5817 cents.
There was an increase of 955,000
oz. in 1928 over 1927.
This increase was entirely due to
increased production in Mexico,
Burma and Australia, which countries increased their production over'
1927 by 4,000,000 oz., 1,400,000
oz. and 800,000 oz. respectively.
There was a decline in the United
States of 4,400,000 oz. and in Canada of 100,000 oz. This increase
of production in Mexico and Burma
indicates one of the greatest difficulties of holding up the price of a
commodity, the largest part of
which is produced in territory in
which the standard of living is considerably lower than in the country
where control may be advocated.

MARKETS are older than civilization.
From the dawn of history markets
have served to facilitate exchange of
cattle, money and merchandise.
Through the ages a babel of shouting
voices resounded in Babylon, Pekin,
NIschni Novgorod, Calcutta, Carthage,
Rome, Berlin, Paris, London, New York.
Organization of joint stock companies
more than 150 years ago as a means of
raising capital for business enterprises
created a necessity for a market for
stocks. The first exchange was organized
in London in 1773. It steadily evolved
through cumbersome methods to an
efficient system. This experience stands
behind trading systems now practiced
In exchanges like London, New York,
Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
Every method Is practiced to insure
fairness to investors and prevent unethical manipulation of prices. The
system of trading is recognized as fair
and equitable throughout the world.
The Vancouver Exchange operates under
a Charter passed and approved by the
Provincial Parliament on April 25,1907.
A market place for the buying Aid selling of stocks, the Vancouver Stock
Exchange is essential to commerce. If
foreign capital is to flow freely in develop*
Ing Western Canadian resources, the
prestige of this institution must be
maintained. The Exchange brings buyer
and seller in contact with each other,
sets o recognized current price for listed
stocks and is a barometer of the success
of individual enterprises.
An Exchange is a disinterested party in
transactions between selling and buying
interests of the public. Fluctuations
take their course in accordance with
buying and selling orders. When the
public gives buying support to certain
stocks, prices rise. When support is
withdrawn, prices fall. Predictions as
to possible values is a matter the client
alone   can   decide   for   himself.
And as a piece of business machinery,
the Stock Exchange attracts capital to
mining undertakings or industrial
enterprises which otherwise might never
come into being. An Exchange is a

adding- that the odds are running
heavily against producers. December statistics, showing' a gain of
44,000 tons in stocks, called attention to the increased difficulty that
confronts producers in their effort
to maintain prices. Stocks have
accumulated to a larger total than
at any time since 1922. This burdensome inventory in itself presents
a big problem, but the trouble is intensified by a continued outlook for
a lower rate of consumption than in

must be more drastic than had been

Big Copper Companies
Cutting Production
Large reductions in the rate of
production at the important copper
mines throughout the American
continent have been effected to keep
stocks of the metal below the danger point. Among the important
curtailments are the closing of three
important mine units of Anaconda
Copper, at Butte, Mont.; closing of
i reverberatory furnace at the United Verde Copper plant, Jerome,
Ariz., bringing the company's output below 3,500 tons of copper
monthly; cutting of Nevada Consol-
idated's daily ore output from its
Nevada mines to 7,500 tons daily,
or about half of capacity; dismissal
of 300 to 400 men at Utah Copper;
and operation of the large Chilian
mines controlled by United States
interests at 50 per cent of capacity.
The problem of unemployment has
been met in some cases by increased
construction and development work
and in others, notably Anaconda
and Utah Copper, by re-employment of dismissed men on a part-
time basis.
The agreement for the return to
British Columbia of the Crown
Lands in the railway belt and Peace

Colonel J. S. Dennis, C.M.G., Chief Commissioner
of Colonization and Development, Canadian Pacific
Railway, will retire January 1, after 28 years with
the company, according to the recent announcement
made by E. W. Beatty, chairman and president of
the system, and the department will then be divided
into the Department of Immigration and Colonization
and the Department of Development. J. N. K.
Macalister, at present assistant chief commissioner
of Colonization and Development, will be chief commissioner of the Department of Immigration and
Colonization and Major G. G. Ommanney will be the
director of the Department of Development.
Colonel Dennis, or "J.S." as he is known to old-
timers, was 78 years old last October, and has had
as colorful a career as any man in Canada. He went
west in 1872 at the age of 16 on survey work and in
1885 saw service against Louis Riel as commander
of the Dominion Land Survey Intelligence Corps
which during the rebellion was known as "Dennis'
Scouts". Among the outstanding work in which he
was engaged was the laying out of irrigation pystems
later constructed in the Lethbridge region and in the
freat Bassano Dam irrigation project of the Canadian
'acific Railway, east of Calgary. His unrivalled
knowledge of Canadian economic and agrarian development has caused Colonel Dennis' name to be placed
among the foremost of Empire builders. Although
♦storing as active head of the Colonization and Devel
opment of the Canadian Pacific Railway system, he
will still participate in the future development of the
department since he will act in an advisory capacity
to  the  company's  directors.
Mr. Macalister has for more than 22 years given
close attention to colonization problems. Since 1906 he
h*3 been immediately interested in opportunities of
development and colonization in the west and entered
Canadian Pacific service in 1907. He has done much
work in the United States drawing attention to the
unparalleled opportunities offered by the Canadian
West. He was appointed assistant commissioner of
the department in 1926. His ability in his chosen

To Taku This Spring
Ed. Pickett, who was in charge
at the Tiger mine last summer, was
a recent visitor to Seattle. He is
