Foundry and Aces Win
Games on Monday
Rovers fell sadly by the wayside
in their game with the Foundry on
Monday last. They could only
accumulate 14 points against 34 by
the moulders. Foundry were out
in full strength, while the Rovers
were minus the services of Thompson and though they tried their
best, it was soon evident that they
were outclassed. The showers
awaited Yelland early in the seoond
half and later they claimed Hamilton and Patrick. The teams: Rovers, Flye 6, Summers, Kirby 5,
Cadillac,   Kergin  3. Foundry:
Scott 9,   Patrick 6,   D. O'Neill 8,
Hamilton 5, Yelland 1, Parsons 5.
Aces gained another victory in
their race for league honors by defeating Mine Girls 29-9 on Monday
last. Although the Aces were in a
scoring mood and could not go
wrong, the Mine GirlR were very
unlucky in not making a much
higher score, as on several occasions
the hoop eluded them by fractions.
E. Morris, .formerly-of the Spooks,
has now donned an orange jersey
and is playing a creditable game
for the Mine Girls. L. Dresser
was easily top scorer in the game
with 14 points. The teams: Mine
Girls. H. Caldeoni. J. Roberts 3, P.

Education Now Has A
Special Week
Throughout the British Empire
the vaiue of eduoation, is now being further emphasised by means
of an "Eduoation Week," the present week—February 6th. to 12th.
—having been set aside for this
purpose. In every oountry over
which the British flag waves, the
value and importance of education
has been proclaimed from pulpits,
platforms and the press.
The attention of parents lias
been specially directed to the need
for making education attractive
rather than uninteresting for the
coming generation, and to this end
Friday, February 8th. was visitors'
day at the schools.
At all schools, visitors—and especially parents—were cordially welcomed from 2 to 3.30 p.m. Parents
especially should appreciate the
fact that nowadays children have
wonderful opportunities for acquiring an education along the best
possible lines, and encourage them
acofcrtlingly. ■•■■

Mr. Hector McColl  Passes
News reached Alice Arm   this
week    that   Mr. Hector McColl
passed   away near Barkerville a
short time ago.   The late Mr. Me
Coll was a former resident of Alice
Arm. where he was well known
and highly respected.   The cause
of death was not given, but it is
learned that he suffered a parayltic
stroke last year, from which, he
had apparently recovered but it is
possible that he was again afflicted.
Tennis Players Hoping For
Early Start
January was no sooner gene,
than some youthful tennis enthusiasts were busy clearing the A. C. L,
tennis court of snow. The quantity
on the courts this year is somewhat
light and given fine weather an
early opening of the tennis season
will be possible.

The Bulk of Canadian
Copper Mined As
Almost every major ore body in
Canada contains two or more minerals, so that base metal mining
operations have resulted in the
production of more than one metal.
From the standpoint of the individual mine, there is a possibility
of better balanced activity as a result of these combinations. When
the price of one metal falls to unprofitable levels, or that of another
shows marked gains, mining oper
ations can be correspondingly ad
justed. Thus, the Britannia mine
at Howe Sound, found copper
prices too low to permit continuance of former operations, but was
able to begin working on an ore
body with a low copper content
and a relatively high zinc content
combined with small percentages
of gold. During the years of low
copper prices, oopper has been produced in Canada principally as a
by-produot in the recovery of other
metals. The expansion of Canadian copper output has been,the
indirect consequence of inoreased
production of nickel and gold.
Thus the president of the Inter-1
national Nickel Company, in a
recent statement to shareholders,
said: "In extracting nickel . . .
approximately two pounds of copper are recovered for every pound
of nickel. This means that copper
is now being mined at the rate of
more than 200,000,000 pounds per
year, as the direct result of provid
ing the nickel now required in diversified industrial markets
throughout the world."
The Rouyn area of Quebec is
another famous example. Developed and originally organized for
the production of copper, low copper prices aud the increasing value
of gold caused the main emphasis
to be placed on gold production
and coppor was relegated to its
present position as a by-product.
Many of the Canadian mines produce small quantities of the precious metals—gold, silver, platinum
and others of the platinum group—
in their ordinary mining operations
and the sale of these precious met'
als has permitted the maintenance
of base metal operations during
the depression.
New Power Machinery
Arrives for Premier
Elks Defeat Vandals In
Erratic Game
The Stewart News
Two tractors, with three sleighs
each, left the dock at 9 o'clock this
morning- with some 35 tons of
machinery for the new Premier
power plant. In this load was included a 630 h.p. Fairbanks-Morse
Diesel in two parcels, one weighing
approximately 11 tons and the other
10, which had been unloaded from
the SS. Griffco, that docked last
evening and commenced discharging
some 110 tons of power and electrical machinery for Premier, as well
as some 20,000 feet of lumber and
general cargo, at 1 o'clock this
With her hoisting gear heavy in
ice, these heavy lifts required expert handling.
With this shipment arrived the first
unit and all the electrical equipment
forthe ne ' . ...,ier power plant,
installation of which will commence
immediately on its arrival at the
mine, as many men being employee1
thereon as is found economically
A second unit, of equal capacity,
is expected to arrive here in.two
weeks time, with two weeks thereafter a third and similar unit.

Great Basketball Exhibition On Friday
Anyone who waK at the Gymnasium on Friday evening, February
1st. will tell you that they would
not have missed those hoop games
for anything. All three were an
exhibition of great basketball, and
nothing quite so good has been
seen here this season. The Senior
B game between the Foundry and
Vandals B was closely contested
every inch of the way and provid
some surprises. The ladies' fixture
was fast and resourceful, and the
Senior A clash between the Vandals and Trojans was a great
thrill for the fans.
Vandais B, out to avenge their
irecent defeat by the Foundry, put
every ounce they had into the fray,
but could not wear down the inspired leaders of the B League,
Continued on Page 4
Lack of a full team was the undoing of Vandals A, in tlieir game
against the  Elks on Monday last,
when the antlered herd   impaled
them on  the short end of a 32-26
score.   The miners found it necessary  to use some of their B men,
players from other teams and even
a couple of spectators from   the
sidelines.   Even the Elks had to
borrow another player, in order to
finish  the game with a quintette
The game was full of excitement
and several unusual situations arose
which   caused    much    merriment
among the good-natured fans.   One
spectator who volunteered for service lasted about five minutes, after
which the showers awaited him.
Two or three others played in civics and  looked  more like referees
than players, with consequent confusion among their team mates and
opponents.   Elks soon established
a nice lead and kept ahead all the
way.    With Vrp<\ CnlHeroni absent
and Tony Calderoni sent to   the
showers quite early, the   scoring
machine of the Mine was entirely
out of gear.    Kulai came through
with ten points and McMillan added six.   Gourlay also sank three
nice baskets toward  the close of
the   game.       For    the   winners,
Davies and McBryde divided honors
with   eleven   points   each.      The
former gave the Vandals a lot of
trouble,  while  McBryde, a   newcomer, has an eye for the hoop and
uses nice judgement.    Currie set a
tine example to his team  mates,
turning in his best card for the
season.     Referee   Gillies handled
this ticklish and unusual game in
a   most  efficient   manner.      The
teams:   Vandals, Kulai 10, White
2. MoMillan 6, Saaman Gourlay 7,
Hamilton 1,   Cadillac,   McClosky.
Elks: Phillips 3, Soott 2, McBryde

It has been suggested that iu
order to avoid possible misunderstanding and confusion, all basketball team managers should make
an effort to have on the floor, before
the start of the games, an eight-

with the need for calling in outsiders, and be much better for all
concerned. It should always be

The Alaska-Yukon
Senators and Congressmen of the
western states of Washington,
Oregon and California, and also
Alaska are pressing their claims at
Washington for appropriations to
survey and build the Alaska-Yukon
Highway. If they are successful,
nothing can be clone until a conference has been held with the Dominion Government, for the biggest
portion must be constructed through
British Columbia. The Canadian
Government are no doubt watching
events, and will wait and see,just
how much money the United States
is willing to pay towards construction. Americans seem more anxious
at present to build the highway
than Canadians, and no doubt will
be a" jeable to pay the larger portion of money on it. It will connect
two parts of the United States by
road, which will be a big advantage
to both Alaska and the U. S. A.
Especially will it be important if
the United States becomes embroiled in a war with Japan. The highway would also be a great asset to
Canada. It would open for devel-.
opment a huge tract of territory
rich in minerals, timber, water
powers and scenery. Millions of
tourists would travel over its surface, leaving money at every place
they stopped. Its construction
would absorb thousands of our unemployed and place millions of
dollars in circulation. In case of a
war, as mentioned above, it would
help Canada just as much or more
than the United States, for if the
Japs ever obtained a foothold in
Alaska it would not be long before
the brown hordes would pour into
British Columbia. In view of all
the advantages to be gained, Canada should join with the United
States in building the highway as
soon as the latter is ready. It
would not be for lack of money that
Canada rejected tlie project for at
present we are spending millions of
dollars on our unemployed and getting very little in return.
Decline In Earnings Of
Howe Sound Co.
An official statement to shareholders of Howe Sound Company,
explains that the decline in earnings
for the last quarter of 1934 in comparison with the preceding quarter
was due to less units of zinc sold
and decreased prices for all metals
except gold and silver. Zinc sales
dropped from 21,179,650 lbs. in
the third quarter to only 4,016,047.
Copper sales, of chief interest in
connection with the company's B.C.
subsidiary, Britannia Mining &
Smelting Co. Ltd., showed an increase from 2,591,846 lbs. to 3,644,.
661 lbs. Gold and silver sales were
also higher. Gold sold, amounted
to 3,450 ounces compared with
2,427 and silver'amounted to 1,158,-
032 against 1,019,402.
Net surplus for the quarter
amounted to $318,813 compared
with $361,772 in the third quarter,
or approximately 67c. per share
against 76c. In the last quarter of
1933 earnings amounted 95c. per
Earnings for 1934 were reported
at approximately $3.57 per share
compared with $1.74 per share in

Trojans Defeat Vandals
In Hard Battle
Not for many a long day, has
such a thrilling hoop tussle been
seen at the Gym, as that between
the Trojans aud Vandals on Friday
the 1st.' At times it was a real
breath-taker for the many fans.
Hearts stood still as the ball
missed by fractions, or rolled round
the rim and fell outside. Partisans
were brought to their feet by the
strategy and brilliance of their
favorites. There was combined
play by both sides. The speedy
and almost uncanny passing of the
Mine trio, was equalled by the
ever watchful checking of the
Bud Gillies, star shooter of the
game, opened the scoring and established a lead for the Trojans,
but the Vandals were soon close
behind through the efforts of Fred
Calderoni and Watson, both of
whom played a brilliant game.
Vandals were unlucky to lose
Tony Calderoni early in the second
half, and Gourlay a little on, both
via the shower route. The game
was well controlled by referee

Canada In Race As 2nd.
Gold Producer
Premier May Take Over
Another Mine
The Financial News.
Toburn Gold Mines Ltd., subsidiary of Premier Gold Mining Company which in turn is controlled by
American Smelting & Refining Co.
of New York, has offered to undertake development of Bidgood-Kirk-
land Consolidated Mines Ltd., a
neighbouring property in the east
Kirkland Lake camp.
Basis of negotiations include an
increase in the capital of Bidgood-
Kirkland from 2,000,000 to 4,000,-
000 shares.    Supplementary letters
Three years ago, Canada, for the
first time, passed the United States
in gold output, after running neck
and neck for some time. This gave
the Dominion a position next to
South Africa in the gold columns.
For Canada the year 1934 represented a record in gold mining. United
States production of the yellow
metal also created a record, so far
as value is concerned the total of
$107,631,700, comparing with $101-
035,700, paid for gold in 1915, the
previous record year.
Canada and the United States are
said to be battling for second place
in world gold output, due to the
absence of official reports on
Russia's production for 1934. Last
month the chief of the Soviet Gold
Trust reported production to be
149 per cent, ahead of 1933, but
official figures for that year have
not been published. However, in
in 1932, Russia produced 1,990,085
fine ounces of gold.
