Alice   Arm Welcomes
New Year With
Big Dance
Gaiety, geniality and goodfellow-
ship, plus the splendid musio of the
Alioe Arm orchestra and the excellent refreshments provided, were
outstanding events of the New
■Year's dance at the Alice Arm
Hotel on Wednesday evening.
All thoughts of trade depressions,
low prioes for metals and other
troublesome things were relegated
to the background, and everyone
abandoned themselves to the
pleasurable task of giving the old
year a final kick and welcoming in
the new with music and mirth.
The dining room of the hotel was
thronged with dancers from an
early hour, and at the hour of
midnight all joined hands and
speeded the old year to oblivion by
singing "Auld Lang Syne" and as
the New Year dawned everyone
was busily engaged iu the time
honored custom of wishing everyone else a "Happy New Year." The
passing of the old year was represented by Jerry O'Connor, arrayed as Old Man Time with the
scythe, followed by Ronald Evindsen, as the young and promising
1931.
Refreshments were then enjoyed
by everyone and the' hot coffee and
delicious vivauds, supplied new
energy to the eager dancers and
during the next few hours, fox
trots, one steps and waltzes followed
one another without intermission.
But somewhere about three o'clock
even the most energetic began to
lose their vim, and shortly after,
one of the most enjoyable New
Year dances ever held at the
Hotel was brought to a close.
Everyone present were the
guests of Mr. and Mrs. 0. Evindsen, and the thanks . of all
were extended to them. This was
done during one of the dances
when all joined hands and forming
a cirole placed the hosts with their
daughter Alma in the centre and
lustily sang "For they are Jolly
Good Fellows."
Preliminary Mining Review For 1930
Shows Industry In Very Healthy State
Estimated That $11,000,000 Was Paid In Dividends Last Year From B. C. Mines
New high record outputs of silver, lead and zinc, in 1930 in part
compensate for a 19 per cent decrease in the gross value of the
mineral production of the Province,
mainly caused by very much lower
average metal prices and a decreased coal output. Dividends for the
year are estimated at the substantial sum of $11,000,000 and development, scouting and prospecting activities were well maintained
considering the worldwide business
depression of the current year.
These encouraging statements
regarding the mining industry of
the Province are contained in Bulletin No. 3, Preliminary Review
and Summary of Mining Operations
in British Columbia during 1930"
now released for distribution by
Honorable W. A. McKenzie, Minister of Mines.
irTcbmm'ehting on the bulletin,
Mr. McKenzie pointed out that the
results were very satisfactory and
that the outlook for the future was
encouraging.    While tbe closing of
I.O.D. £. Will Meet On
Monday
The Collison of Kincolith Chapter
I.O.D.E. will hold its regular
monthly meeting on Monday, January Sth. in the Legion Club Room
at 7.45 p.m. Nominations will take
place.
The speaker for the evening will
be Mr. W. F. Eve, subject: "Parliamentary Procedure."
certain mines has caused some unemployment, he considers that mining has weathered the storm of
depression in a better way than
might have been expected.
Although some mines were
closed down, five new mines were
brought into profitable production
during the year. The Resident
Engineers' reports show a surprising amount of activity in prospecting, scouting and development in
their Districts.
Coal production shows a further
decline, but Mr. McKenzie hopes
that the low point has been reached
and that in 1931 coal sales will
increase.
That British Columbia is still a
fertile field for the prospector is
shown by a number of new discoveries made during the year, two
of which give promise of importance; both of tli'etri were immediately optioned by large operating
companies and active development
commenced.
An important outgrowth of the
ESTIMATED   MINERAL   PRODUCTION
mining industry is the construction
near Trail by the Consolidated
Company of the $10,000,000 plant
to manufacture chemical fertilizers, j
Early in 1931 the first units of this
plant Will commence production and
this will be an important addition to
the industrial activity of the Province.
The bulletin (No. 3, 1930) is com-
piled by John D. Galloway, Provincial Mineralogist, and contains a
comprehensive statistical review of
the industry for the year. Concise
reports by the Resident Engineers
give useful information on mining
activities in their respective district; <and an estimate of coal production by the Chief Inspector of
Mines is also included in the
bulletin.'
The gross value of the mineral
production of the Province for 1930
is estimated at $55,164,51 Sr a..decline from the output in 1929 of
$13,080,928, or 19,15 per cent.
The following table shows the
estimated production for 1930 and

Here we are at the third of January and enjoying September
weather. Not a particle of snow
lies on the ground, and no frost
holds the soil ironbound. The
beautiful weather of the past

everyone, and whatever happens
now in the way of frost or snow,
we oan at worst experience only a
short .winter, in caparison with
those of past years.
Mr. Harry Smith has been

Anyox Celebrated New
Year's Incoming
Joyously
An extraordinary large number
of people were present at.the Elks'
New Year Frolic and Dance on
Wednesday evening to speed old
1930 on his way and welcome
young 1931, from, whom better
times are expected.
Almost a record number
attended the dance, and the gorgeous decorations; the large crowd
and the excellent music combined
to make a very animated scene.
The Gymnasium was decorated in
the colors of the Elks' Order—purple and white—and the massed
colors and fascinating designs were
greatly admired.
Musio was supplied by Harry
Ward's Orchestra, and the splendid music, oombined with the fes-
tive season was responsible for
even those with the stiffest joints
joining in the gaiety aud steppiug
a fox trot.
At the hour of midnight all
joined hands and voices in singing
"Auld Lang Syne," and no one had
any qualms in bidding farewell to
the passing year with its low
prices for oopper and short time,
and alt were ready to welcome
young 1931, who, it is hoped will
deal more kindly with us.
And the supper that followed.
It was a banquet. Cold roast turkey, and lots of it, and all the
trimmings. When it had been
partaken of, everyone felt capable
of dancing until breakfast time,
and some probably would, but the
tired orohestra was forced to call
it off.
It was an excellent night's entertainment and the Brother Bills of
Anyox Lodge again lived up to
their reputation, that as entertainers they are second to none.

The members of the Choral
Society will meet on Tuesday, January 6, at the United Church Hall

posed program.

"Bright Lights"   Will
Shine at Theatre
Tonight
The legion of admirers Dorothy
Mackaill has recruited, particularly
since talkies introduced her voice in
"The Barker" and "The Captive
Woman," will see her in her latest
picture "in her true colors." She
will be seen in a Technicolor film.
The picture is "Bright Lights," a
First National special dramatic film,
with music and dance numbers
incidental to the romance and
drama surrounding the evolution of
a celebrity from a muscle-dancer in
an African dive.
Seen in natural color film, Miss
Mackaill not only gets the full
benefit of her typical English ruddy
complextion, blue eyes and blonde
hair, but she takes on a very becoming roundness characteristic of
the Technicolor film, which lends
depth and stereoscopic effect.
Frank Fay, Noah Berry, Daphne
Pollard, James Murry, Tom Dugan,
Inez Courtney and many other
favorites have important roles in
"Bright Lights," which Michael
Curtiz directed. It was written
directly for the screen by Humphrey
Pearson, author of "On With the
Show."
"Bright Lights" will be the feature attraction at the Anyox Theatre, Saturday, January 3rd.
Mild Christmas Throughout
Canada
Ottawa—Canada, poetically
termed "Our Lady of the Snows,"
went without her oft heralded
"White Christmas" this year.
From ocean to ocean and from the
rugged Arctic shores down to the
United States boundary weather
ruled generally "fair and mild."
Snow fell at only widely separated
points across the country. Christmas Day's lone sub-zero temperature was listed at Dawson in
Yukon Territory where it was only
two degrees below zero.
News Items From The
Provincial Capital
Victoria, December 27, 1930. Recent plebiscites on the sale of beer
by the glass have resulted in favor
of the measure. In the Similka-
meen district, Coalmont approved
it by 47 to 10 and Hedley 44 to 8.
In North Okanagan four out of five
centres gave 329 in favor and fifty
against the sale of beer. At Chase
114 were in favor and 21 against.
The biggest test is to come in
Victoria on January 10th. In the
general referendum the capital city
voted down the beer parlors by
about 2,000 majority. After several attempts the necessary petition
for resubmission has been secured.
Seventy-two out of the 75 municipalities of the province have
signed agreements with the government for funds to be spent on
unemployment relief. These involved the expenditure of $1,728,-
196 on public works, one half the
cost being borne by the municipalities and the other half by the
Dominion and Provincial Governments in even amounts.
The Department of Agriculture
has been active in supplying pure
bred livestock to farmers' Institute
this year. They have secured 41
bulls this season s against 33 last
year with other stock in proportion.
The Department buy these animals
for the Institutes and pays transportation costs. The farmers pay
half or one-third down and the
balance on yearly instalments.    ■
The Liquor Board has urged
British and European exporters to
this province to ship their goods in
cases made of B. C. timber. As
practically the entire packing case
business of Great Britain uses imported lumber, fhis has already had
the effect of starting many inquiries
here for box shooks and packing
case lumber fjr the British and
European market. It is believed
that the result will be greatly stimulated, as if used for one purpose it
may easily be used for others.
Canada's fishing grounds are
said to be the most extensive in the
world. On the Atlantic coast there
is a shore line of 5000 miles, and on
tne Pacific a shore line of 7000
miles, and there are 15,000 square
miles of inshore waters.

Will Not Refine Copper
At Trail
One result of the participation of
Consolidated Mining & Smelting
Co. Ltd., in the financing of the
Ontario Refining Company, along
with International Nickel of Cana
da, has been the removal of all
copper refining operations formerly
oarried on by the Trail smelter and
refinery, to Eastern Canada.
This was revealed when it became known that ill addition to
blister copper from Granby Consolidated, which was formerly refined by Consolidated, Ontario
Refining Company has purchased
the remainder of the copper refining equipment of the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company,
and this equipment is now incorporated in the copper plant.
Prior to this year Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company
was the only producer of refined
copper in the Dominion, with a
capacity for refining 15,000 tons
annually.
Mineral production per capita in
British Columbia in 1929 was $116
and for Canada, $32.

Canadian Buffalo Increasing
Ottawa, Canada: December 27;
(Special to the Herald). The herd
of 10,000 buffalo in Wood Buffalo
Park near.Fort Smith, N.W.T. is
made up of the 1,500 wood buffalo
for which the reserve was originally set aside; the 6,673 animals

Up to December 15 more grain
had been delivered to ships at West
Saint John than during tho entire
month of December, 1929, and this
traffic bids fair to exceed thatj of
last season for Mediterranean and
other European ports, according to
information gathered at Canadian
Paeific Railway headquarters. In
addition to grain at seaboard, 1,-
500,000 bushels were in transit at
mid-December, with further orders
coming in daily.

By the throwing of a switch in
the Saskatoon power house of the
Saskatchewan Government Power
Commission a new era for many
towns in central Saskatchewan was
recently introduced. This act
marked the energizing of the new
high tension power line to Shell-
brook and the lighting up of that
town and of a number of intervening towns by electricity supplied
from the central electric station in
Saskatoon. About 400 miles of
power lines will be functioning
shortly and a hundred towns will
be effectively lighted and supplied
with power.
More than half a million Christmas trees have been shipped from
the Province of New Brunswick to
points in the United States. The
supply ot Christmas trees from
New Brunswick for United States
comes entirely from privately-owned lands as the exportation of such
trees cut on government-owned
lands is forbidden.
During tho past two years forty
Danish families, comprising 165
persons, have bought farms in Nova

Annapolis Valley as far west, as
Bridgetown. ,
In the first nine months of 1930,
more than 380,000 pounds of mail

Old Clipper Ship's Departed Glory
wm<wgmmmmmmmm
The "Melanope", once a speedy and beautiful sailing
ship, now tends the Empress of Asia and Empress of
Russia, present-day liners of the Canadian Pacific fleet
at Vancouver in the capacity of coal hulk. Grimed,
blackened and scarred by the years, there is little about
this Boiled hulk to suggest the glcry of a clipper ship,
yet such was the "Melanope" before an accident at the
bar of the Columbia river left ber abandoned to an
unkind fate. >It is recorded that a Liverpool apple
eeddler, a woman, put a terrible curse on the old ship
on her maiden voyage, after she had been put off the
vessel into a towing tug. Ever afterwards whni the
trim ship had a mishap superstitious sailors blamed the
"apple woman" until the "Melanope" became associated, wherever Beamen gathered, with the Liverpool
peddler and her vindictive curse. In above lay-out,
bottom, the "Melanope" is shown as she appears today.
Centre, the artist has tried to show how she once looked
in all her glory of tall masts and spreading canvas while

contributors it has been found impossible to\ publish the names of
each individual subscribing, but
the committee wish to extend tlieir
thanks to everyone for their generosity.
A final allotment of the funds
has not yot been made. This delay
has been caused by the fact that
it was necessary to make enquiries
from dependents of those killed as
far away as Europe: As soon as
all information has been gathered
a final distribution of the fund will
be made, and p il dependents of

Pioneer Mess Dinner  And
Dance Enjoyed
The Annual Dinner and Dance
held at the Pioneer Mess in the
Hotel on Monday night was indeed
a very popular and happy event.
A large number of guests attended
and the gaily decorated hotel was
a scene of much jollity. A splnn
did dinner was ably served by the
pretty waitresses who were kept
extremely busy attending to the
constant flow of guests. Fancy
hats, and all kinds of novel instruments were soon in evidence
amid the loud bangs of the
craokors provided.
The dance that followed was
held in the Library and Joe Peel's
New Victor Orchestra played
excellent musio until the early
hours of Tuesday. The dancers
were in a very merry mood and
everybody had a real good time
Floor Manager, Syd Hopkins
found he had all his work cut out
to make himself heard above the
din of the jolly crowd.
The Committee of the Pioneer
Mess are to be congratulated on
the success of their annual event
whioh obviously grows in popularity each year.
James Anderson left Alice Arm
ou Wednesday in order to spend a

derson at Anyox.
This District Need Not
Fear Future
We have now started off on
another year. The new year was
born in depression, but it is very
possible it will die in prosperity.
Poor beginnings often have good
endings. A feature of the general
depression is the remarkable manner in which the mining industry
has successfully oarried on. Last
year a total of $11,000,000 was
paid in dividends by mining coin
panies operating in B.C. despite
thejlow prices of metals and poor
markets. The present stage of
stagnation wilt not last much
longer. It can't, for the burden on
the various governments will become too heavy. As soon as nor
mal prosperity appears, the miningj
industry will be the first to feel the
effect. Prices will rise and rising
prices means a search for new
mines, and Alice Arm district has
many properties that can undoubt
edly be transformed into producing
mines economically. No, we have
nothing to fear for the future.
We have the mineral and if mining
companies are given proper en
couragenient by property owners
it will be mined as soon as conditions warrant,
