Outlook For Copper Is
Good Says Rhodesian
London—"I still retain the utmost  confidence in the future of
copper," said A.  Chester Beatty,
chairman of Rhodesian   Selection
Trust, at the annual meeting, "and
I think we may reasonably anticipate that when world  conditions
tend   toward recovery the copper
market will be the one of first to respond.     You will notice that in the
two heavy depressions,   the   bad
panics   of  1907 and  1921, copper
still maintained a fair price.    This,
to my mind, was attained by co-operation in restricting   production.
When we consider that the consumption of copper, based on the
first six months of 1931,  has been
at the rate of about 1,000,000   tons
per annum, whereas the consumption in  1929 was 2,000,000 tons,
in other words that consumption in
the first half of 1931 was about 50
percent,  of the  1929 figure, you
will   see that this compares very
favorably with the position in other
industries   and particularly   when
compared with the steel industry.
It is inconceivable to my mind that
in the progress of civilization   in
which   electrical development will
provide such a prominent part, there
will not be a steady and gradually
increasing consumption of copper."

Shortly before his death, the late

The Kitchen Band Will
Make Their Debut
On Monday
A treat is in store for the people
of Anyox on Monday the 26th,
when a Grand Concert will be given
in the Recreation Hall under the
auspices of the United Church.
The programme is full of interesting items.
An enjoyable feature will be
the dancing by the dance pupils of
Mrs. V. S. McRae. Some beautiful and dainty numbers will be
given by the tiny tots, as well as
by older girls. The Anyox Amateur Orchestra, under the leadership
of Mr. J. Peel, will make its first
appearance this season. There will
also be vocal solos. The piece de
resistance, however, will be the
first appearance in Anyox of the
Hidden Kreek Kitchen Kabinet
Band. This is something altogether unique and about which we are
not going to tell, except that they
have been practising "religiously"
(?) for some time, and are worth
going a long way to see and hear.

weird home-made instruments, will
play their way right into the hearts

Anaconda Company
Cuts Fuel Costs
Changes now in progress at
Butte and Anaconda will shortly
cause coal to be entirely supplanted by natural gas as a fuel for the
Anaconda Copper Mining Company's mines, mills and smelters.
The gas comes from the Cut Bank
field through the 220-mile pipeline
just completed by Montana Power
Anaconda has been using about
100,000 tons of coal a year at the
smelter and 36,000 tons at Butte.
Coal has been used in the mines
only for hoist heating. Haulage
has been electrically powered for
many years, as had operation of
the Butte, Anauonda & Pacific
railroad, hauling ore to the smel
In dispensing with coal the Anaconda company is relieved of the
necessity of storage of some 20,000
to 30,000 tons of fuel against possible snow blockades of coal trains.
This storage tied up much capital
and resulted in a further loss
through depreciation by weathering.
Just how much gas the Anaoon-
da company will use will depend
on the number of mines and furnaces in operation from month to
mouth. Engineers have'figured,
however, that the Anaconda company gas requirements average
"will amount to double the entire
combined natural gas consumption
of Oregon, Washington and British
Psychology is where the astute
police give out the robbery loss at
double the actual figure, thus stirring up a suspicion among the
assistant thugs that they were
short changed.

Winnipeg, Man., October 9—
Buffalo steaks, tongues and tails,
delicacies which figured on the
plainsman's menu in Western Can
ada many years ago, will again be
available for Canadian householders and for diners in hotels and
dining cars of the Canadian Railways, according to an announcement from Ottawa, received by the
Canadian National Railways that
another 1,500 animals from Canada's great Buffalo herd at Wainwright Park are to be slaughtered
in the late fall and early winter.
At the end of March this year
there were more than 6,000 animals in the Wainwright preserve.
To this number has since been
added the annual increase of about
20 per cent, with the result that
the Park is again overtaxed as to
its grazing possibilities and thinning out of tlie herd has been
decided upon by the National
Parks branch which controls the
buffalo experiments. This is not
the first time that it has been
found necessary to reduce the
Wainwright herd. On several
occasions, large numbers of the
animals have been slaughtered and
their products have been market

With the fall of the leaf and the
tang of autumn in the air the
fishing rod is laid aside and the
Nimroda look to their rifles and
shotguns, as the hunting season is
ushered in. True to her reputation
as one of the world's greatest playgrounds, Canada offers a wide
range of sport, furred, feathered

penetrate its far-flung hinterlands.
From coast to coast, all along the
vast system of the Canadian Pacific Railway, there are countless es
tablished points of entry into the
woods and mountains, readily
accessible to those in search of
game. The shores of countless
lakes, rivers, and creeks, abound
with all varieties of duck and goose
and are not infrequently the scene
of the termination of successful
expeditions after moose, elk and
deer of all kinds. New Brunswick
rivals Ontario and Quebec as moose
territory, while further west, the
towering Rockies offer their tribute
of bear, mountain sheep and
mountain goat. Bear are also plentiful in the Ontario northland and
in certain parts of Quebec. With
a view to preservation, various
changes have been made this year
in the game laws of all Canadian
provinces, but even with the new
restrictions a broad period of
hunting is offered and the invading
army from Canadian centres, as
well as from the United States, is
already starting on its expeditions. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD, Saturday, October 2-1, 1931

Hold Meeting
The annual western meeting of
the Canadian Institute of Mining
and Metallurgy will be held jointly
with the Mining Association of
British Columbia in Vancouver,
November 25 to 27. A feature of

will attend.
B. C. Industry Benefits From
Relief Camps
Provision for the Government
relief work camps has involved an
immense amount of buying which
is being done through tlie Depart
ment of the Government Purchasing Agent, V. W. Rollins. Put>
chases have already cleaned up the
cooking ranges, wheelbarrows,
picks and shovels in different parts
of the province. The packing and
canning establishments have bene
fitted. Owing to the closing of
logging and mining camps many
of these institutions found themselves with a large quantity of last
year's pack still on their hands.
Purchases for the relief have cleared them out so that they are able
to place in a new lot and thus pro
vide more employment in doing so.
This follow the government's policy
of using British Columbia goods to
the fullest possible extent.
Forty-five Airplanes In B. C.

Canada goes on increasing her
gold production with every pros
pect in view that she will this year
surpass her own previous high
records when final figutes for 1931
are recorded. Ontario and Britisli
Columbia are accounting for most
of the increase. Ontaria alone this
year is producing at a rate that
suggests a total for the year in the
vicinity of $41,000,000, or nearly
as much as all Canada produced
last year.
