make the trip far exceeded the
expectations of the League, and
the Granby had to make several
trips eaoh way in order to accommodate the crowd.
The weather was bright and
warm, and the day's outing at the.
attractive island, with its rich
green foliage, was greatly enjoyed.

the needs of the inner man, the
League providing tea; milk and
sugar, and also coffee right on the
premises for those who disired it.
It is the intention of the League to
run these trips every Sunday providing the weather is suitable, as

Church Coast Mission in charge of
Rev. W. B. Jennings, paid its first

which was also the name of the
former launch, has a length of 47
feet and a beam of 12 feet. She is
fitted with a 47 h.p. high speed full
deisel Gardiner engine working ona
2 to 1 reduction, and which develops a speed of 8£ knots per hour.
The "Northern Cross" was built
at Prince Rupert during the past
winter expressly for North Coast
mission work. She contains several comfortable cabins which are
very neatly painted and furnished.
She is of the raised deck cruiser
type and should be able to withstand the rough weather often encountered on the coast without
seriously inconveniencing the occupants.

Insurance against unemployment
in Canada may become law during
this year or next. Premier R. B.
Bennett has stated that the government will give it serious consideration. It is being realized throughout the country that the voting of
large sums of money for relief work
during times of depression only
temporarily relieves the situation,
and is a costly undertaking. Premier Bennett has stated that should
unemployment insurance become
law that it will be contributory.
This means that wage earners
will be called upon to pay part of
their wages into the fund. Employers of labor will also pay a
share and the balance will be paid
into the fund by the government.
Itis generally admitted that unemployment will exist throughout the
world for some considerable time,
and that Canada will suffer with
the rest. Owing to seasonal occupations more men are always out
of work in Canada during the winter than in countries situated in
warmer climates. Insurance against
unemployment will no doubt result
in the shutting out of immigrants.
It would be extremely foolish to
allow the country to be flooded
with people of other nationalities
and then be forced to support
them. There are many delicate
problems to be worked out before
the government commits itself to
any insurance scheme, but it is
generally understood that people
can not be allowed to starve to
death because they can not obtain
work, and some plan must necessarily be found to meet the situation.

United Verde Copper Company
last week suspended all operations

The condition of the copper metal

Honorable W. A. McKenzie,
Minister of Mines, has released for
distribution his Annual Report for
1930. This voluminous report
covers exhaustively the year's
activities in the widespread mining
industry of the Province and shows
clearly its importance to British
Columbia. In commenting on the
record for the past year, Honorable
Mr. McKenzie points out that new
high record outputs of silver, lead,
and zinc, in part compensated for
a decline of 1S.8 % iu the gross
value of the mineral production—
the latter caused mainly by low
metal prices and decreased coal
output.
The filial figures show a gross
value of |55,391,993 as compared
with the 1929 record of $68,245,-
448. Notwithstanding an unusually
depressed year for the world in
general, mining in British Columbia in 1930 held up remarkably
well, as in the aggregate the quantity of metals and minerals produced was the greatest in the
history of mining in the Province.
Of decided interest at this time
is the proof with statistics furnish
ed of the growing interest in the
development of the gold resources
of the Province. The production
of this precious metal (lode and
placer) shows an increase of $352,-
681 in 1930 as compared with 1929.
This in itself, Mr. McKenzie explains, is not of outstanding importance but it shows a movement
in the right direction. He declares
that the interest in gold, now
noted wherever there is a mining
industry, is becoming more and
more marked in British Columbia.
Inquires as to the gold potentialities of the Province are now being
received from far and wide. More
activity is evidenced in placer-
mining, following last year the
issuance by the Department of
Mines of a bulletin dealing with
the placer fields of the Province,
Mr. McKenzie refers also to
tecent developments in connection
with the property of the Pioneer
Gold Mines, Ltd., in the Bridge
River District. Everyone, he
points out, who keeps in touch
believes that the prospects of this
property will become one of the
1929

substantial gold producers of tho
Canadian West.
The Minister points out that the
major mining activities of the
Province were well sustained although curtailment and cessation
of operation were forced on oertain
mines by economio conditions.
Some new producers, however,
were brought in and the important
construction and expansion plans
of the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company were carried on
at a greater rate than ever. Considering the circumstances other
arge operators have maintained
their staffs in a commendable
manner.
The dividends declared during
the year totalled $12,527,652 only
a slight decrease from the record
figure of $13,743,308 in 1929.
While the dividend record is very
satisfactory, the outlook owing to
low metal prices is for lower
dividends in the next few years
than in recent years.
Other striking points brought
out as follows:
That increases were shown in
1930 as compared with 1929 in the
production of gold, silver, lead and
zinc, there being decreases only in
the outputs of copper and coal.
That the value of structural
materials produced indicates an
advance over the previous year.
That the production of lead in
1930 was 319,199,752 lb- valued at
$12,535,931,—the largest quantity
of lead ever produced in any year
in the Province.
That lead is now the most important in point of value of the
metal production of the Province,
representing for the past seven
years over $15,000,000 a year as
compared with copper's $12,000,000
and coal at a little more than $11,-
000,000.
That the production of coal has
declined 19.3%.
That there was in 1930 a remarkable increase in the zinc output, viz. 250,287,306 lb- as compared with 172.096,841 lb. in 1929.
That a new high reoord was
established in silver output, viz.
11,289,171 oz. as compared to, 9,-
918,800 oz. last year.
The Annual Report of the Min
ister of Mines is prepared under
the supervision of John D. Gallo
way, Provincial Mineralogist, and
contains complete statistics of the
industry, detailed reports by the
Resident Engineers on their respective districts, full reports by
the Inspection Branch and much
incidental data relating to the
mineral industry of the Provinoe.

Thirty-seven Million
Caught Last Year
The commercial fishermen of
British Columbia landed approximately 37,000,000 salmon last
year. The aggregate weight was
216,000,000 pounds or an average
of between five and six pounds
each. The exact number caught
was 36,945,948 or about 9,500,000
more than were landed in 1926 the
previous record year, and 10,400,-
000 more than in 1928 another big
year. The varieties taken in 1930
as shown by count were; Pinks,
23,872,907; sockeyes, 5,348,078;
chums, 5,111,137; cohoes, 1,207,-
765; springs, 539,381. There were
also 727,170 bluebacks and 141,511
steelheads. A tally is kept of all
fish received by the canneries and
cold storage warehouses, but no
track can be kept of those landed
by sportsmen so that the number
taken in the province was probably
well in excess of 37,000,000. The
commercial figures are reported to
the Dominion Department of Fisheries.

Beauty unrivalled, health-giving altitudes, all the

travellers from all over the world, which annually
invades the glorious Canadian Rockies through the
Banff Springs Hotel and the Chateau Lake Louise.
These stately up-to-date hoatelries, which open on

which owns and operates them, they are equipped
not only to be "homes from home" to the travelling
public and holiday-seekers in the generally accepted
sense, but to furnish entertainment for their guests in
many and varied ways.   Auto drives, trail-rides, boating,
fishing, swimming, golf, tennis, hiking and mountaineering,
to say nothing of the famous Indian Days and the Highland
Gathering, are all part of programs which yean of experience
have brought to perfection. Experts in all lines are in attendance
to be of service to the hotels' guests and real cowboys, red-coated
"Mounties" and true Stoney Indiana lend color to a hundred
varirlions of uniquely picturesque scenes.   There ii never a dull moment at
Banff or Lake Louise. There is something for every taste and th* rounding
off of full day by dancing in cool and spacious ball-rooms, to smart orchestras, is not the least of the attractions offered.
