Strikers   And   Police
Clashed Yesterday
Several Were Injured   and
Taken To Hospital
Police and strikers clashed yesterday morning' at the foot of the Mine
Hill. The result was that two
policemen are in hospital, and also
three miners.
The light occurred when about
400 miners left their quarters at
6.30a,m.togoto the Beachfprpick-
et duty. At the foot of the hill on
the Mine road they were barred by
a small number of police. A fight
ensued and although the police
were greatly outnumbered and put
up a strong resistance they could
not stop the progress of the miners.
The two injured policemen were
surrounded and stricken "to the
ground. They are badly bruised
and cut, but not seriously injured.
One miner it is said will probably
lose an eye. The others it is
thought are not seriously hurt.
The miners all wore their underground safety helmets, which being
| composed of tough fibre, proved a
great protection from blows.
'They arrived at the Beach at 7 a.m.
and everyone going on shift was
stopped. The whole Anyox plant
is now completely closed except a
portion of the power house.
No arrests have yet been made
by the police in connection with the
strike.
Tom Bradley Is Experienced
Strike Organizer
Tom Bradley, the local strike organizer is well known as a labor
leader. He took an active part in
the coal miners' strike at Princeton
during the months of November
and December. He defended Mike
Kovich in the Police Court at Princeton on December 15th. when the
latter was charged with stone throwing during picket duty by miners;
Since Tuesday night he has been
searched for by the police and although the Mine townsite has been
combed thoroughly several times,
up until yesterday he had not been
found. It is stated that he has been
seen on the streets at the Beach
since the search was undertaken.
What charge will be laid against
him is not known. He was born
in Canada.
Anyox Notes
Mrs. R. T. Carrick returned on
Wednesday from a visit to Vancouver.
John Dereworez, of Bonanza, left

visit to Vancouver and Saskatchewan.
Anyox In Throes Of Big Labor Dispute.
Sudden Strike Ties Up Granby Co. Plant
Mine Closed Down on Wednesday.    Smelter, Mill and Coke Plant Yesterday.    Tie-up
Is Complete.   Organization Affiliated with The Red International of Labor
Organized Strike.   Over 1000 Men Affected.
From the everyday routine of
work and pleasure which has prevailed in Anyox for many years, the
town was with dramatic suddenness
plunged into a strike this week that
completely closed down the mines,
and big ore reduction plant of the
Granby Co, throwing over one
thousand  men out of employment.
Like a thunderbolt from a blue
sky the news was broadcast on
Sundav that a labor union had been
organized at the Mine and Beach
and that a public meeting was to be
held at the Mine that evening.
This meeting was addressed by Tom
Bradley, a union organizer and
others; also by officials of the Granby Co. Bradley voiced the complaints of the members and explained the aims of the union. He stated that the local labor union formed
was a branch of the Mine Workers
Union of Canada, affiliated with the
Workers Unity League of Canada
and the Red International of Labor.
On Monday a delegation from the
union met officials of the Granby
Co. and presented their demands.
The chief items were 50 cents a day
increase in wages, twenty per cent
reduction of board, and reduction
of room and house rents.    Failing1 tion activities commenced at   the
these concessions being made a
strike of all union members throughout the plant would be called on
Wednesday morning. This was
later modified until Friday morning
for the Beach, so that the surplus
ore could be run through the mill
and smelter.
The company replied that it was
impossible to meet these demands
owing to the extremely low price of
copper prevailing, and also that no
market could be found for their copper and that it was extremely difficult to keep the plant in operation
even under the present scale.
The result was, that the strike
was called at the Mine on Wednesday morning. All operations ceased both underground and on the
surface. The same thing happened
at the Beach yesterday morning,
the big concentrating mill, smelter
and coke ovens were all silent; also
machine shops, electric shops and
others.    The tie-up was complete.
At the time of going to press this
condition of affairs prevails, and it
is doubtful when the deadlock will
be broken. On Tuesday evening a
police boat arrived from Prince Rupert with 7 provincial police in
charge of staff-serjeant McNeill, to
enforce order should it be necessary.
On Thursday evening 10 constables
of the Canadian Mounted Police arrived from Vancouver. Accompanying them was Provincial Police
Inspector J. Sherra»of D. Division
who will be in full charge.
Who, how or when the employees
of the Granby Co. were organized
into the Mine Workers Union of
Canada was a mystery until this
week. But personal investigations
of the editor during the past few
days, have revealed that organiza-
mine several months ago and later
a number of men from the Beach
were included. At first progress
was slow, but strength was gather
ed as time went on. Two weeks
ago, Tom Bradley, labor organizer
arrived in town, who no doubt
thought that sufficient strength had
been gained to declare themselves,
and present their demands.
If neither side gives way during
the present dispute and the big plant
of the Granby Co. remains closed
for an indefinite period, much want
and   suffering   will   result.      The
Granby Company's statement that
they cannot meet the demands of
the strikers and continue operations
must be taken seriously. It is well-
known to everyone that the copper
market has been in a demoralized
state for the past eighteen months.
They have practically their entire
output for the past year and a half
stored, either in the United States
or at Anyox, awaiting buyers. At
tbe present time refined copper is
selling in New York at 4.775 cents
a pound. This, the company state
is much lower than they can produce
and if they wished to gamble in copper it would be cheaper for them to
buy it in the open market than make
it. Another phase is that the cash
reserves of the company are exhausted and if future operations are
carried on it can only be done with
borrowed money, which means high
interest rates. At the presenl*'lib!o
the company is paying around $100,-
000 a month in wages; the same
amount for supplies, and employing
over 1,000 men. The company
are fully aware that conditions at
Anyox are not as good as they
should be, but due to present economic conditions state that they cannot improve them.
On the other hand, chiefly among
the lower paid employees, the feeling is rife that if conditions are not
improved by increased wages and
board and room reductions, that the
plant might as well be closed.
That there has been dissatisfaction
for some time is well known, and
when an expert labor organizer such
as Tom Bradley visited the camp,
he found a fertile field for further
sowing the seed of discontent.
The closing of the plant for a
lengthy period would be a calamity
for the whole north, and it would.be
a serious blow to the general business of the whole province.
The Red International Is The
Child of Communism
The Red International of Labor
to which is affiliated the Anyox Labor Union, is an offshoot of the
Communist Party of Canada. The
latter was declared illegal in Canada
two or three years ago by Premier
Bennett. All members belonging
to it were liable to arrest. Hence
the change of name. The slogan
of the Red International is "Class
Against Class." Its aims and objects are similar to the Communist
Party. Italy is the only other
country where it is illegal to be a
member of the Communist Party.

Catholic Ladies Hold Card
Party and Dance
In every way enjoyable was the
Whist Drive and Dance held by the
ladies of the Catholic Church on
Monday evening the 30th. A nice
crowd sat down to play whist, and
the number was further augmented
for the dance which took place later
in the evening. Mrs Hardy secured
the first prize for the ladies, while
VIrs. Bailey sat on the penitent form
to untie the booby package.
R. Duffy took first honors for the
men, while George Rattray qualified
for the booby prize. A delightful
supper was served, after which a
very pleasant session of dancing
took place, the music being supplied
by Mrs. MacMillan's Orchestra.
Several old-time dances were given
such as the quadrilles, military two-
step, Highland Schottische and
French Minuet.
The Rev Father Hammond, with
a very apt and appropriate speech
presented the prizes for the winners
at cards.
Scotch  Society  For  This
District Is Proposed
To foster and encourage Scottish
function's, dance customs, etc in
this district, a number of Scotch
folk iu Anyox are considering the
formation of a Scottish Society.
Iu other communities there exist
Caledonian and similar Scotch societies and it is felt that a number of
Scotch people and people claiming
descent from that famous race,
would welcome the organizing of
suoh a society, aiid that there
would be plenty of support available. Various Scotch functions
could thus be arranged and controlled by a governing body.
Further announcement will be
made as soon as anything tangible
has been arrived at. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD.   Saturday.  February 4.  193.3

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
What is the cause of the pres
ent strike in Anyox? Some of
our readers would unhesitatingly
say: professional labor agitators
who should be strung up as soon
as caught. Others will say: the
workers exercising their rights to
better their conditions. Others
again will say: the greed of the
capitalists for more profits caused
the strike. But taking a broad
viewpoint, the cause of the strike
in our opinion, is a product of the
present trade depression that has
engulfed the entire world. Let
us explain. Copper with every
other commodity that is produced
is down to unheard of price levels,
Low prices means low wages, if
production is carried on. If it
stops it means no wages. Low
wages means a lowered standard
of living. A lower standard of
living breeds discontent. When a
thousand men are living in a com
pact area as at Anyox this discon
tent is bound to increase. No one
can stop it. The result is that
sooner or later, with a very little
fanning, the smoldering breaks into
flame and an upheaval follows.
Some might say, yes, but if the
smouldering wasn't fanned by red
labor agitators there would be no
upheaval, at least not in Anyox.
Correct, perhaps, but the labor
trouble agitators are also a product
of the present depression. It is
during such times, when dissatisfaction is rife that they can successfully operate. Tom Bradley
would never waste his time coming to Anyox if copper was even
10 cents a pound.
Canadian   Gold   Production
Still Increases
Gold production is becoming an
ever-increasing factor in the economic life of Canada. It is estimated by George 0. Bateman, secretary
of the Ontario Mining Association,
that the Dominion should produce
about §67,400,000 worth of gold in
11)33. This would represent an increase of about 7 per cent, over
1932 which, in turn, was 13 per
cent, above 1931.
J. D. Galloway, provincial mineralogist, has forecast a gold production of more than $5,500,000 for
B. C. this year. Last year's output in B. C. was recently estimated
by Ottawa to be $4,182,966 compared  with $3,308,920   in   1931.
New Maid: "How do I announce
dinner?, Do I say, Dinner is ready
or Dinner is served?"
Mistress'. If it is like it was yesterday, just say Dinner is burnt."
Copper Companies Are
In For a Hard Time
' The failure of the international
copper conference at its sessions
in December to agree on any
plan for the limitation of production in 1932 left the copper industry
in a highly confused state at the
end of the year.
With many of the foreign producers threatening to increase their
outputs because they were unable
to obtain the co-operation of Roan
Antelope Copper Mines, Ltd., iu
curtailment for this year, the feeling in some quarters is that a competitive light may result and leave
only the strongest and most favorably located producers surviving.
Producers see little that is en
ccuraging in the outlook for con
sumption in at least the first half
of this year. Operations of the
steel industry, which consumes
large quantities of copper, are at
low levels and little increase in demand for the red metal is expected
from that source. The outlook for
an increase in public utility construction is not bright because of
the difficulty of this industry in
raising additional capital and also
because in many ways it is overbuilt. As a result, any increase in
production from current levels,
which is now greater than the demand, it is contended, almost inevitably would force prices lower.
If the price of copper in the foreign
market declines further, the belief
in the trade is that Roan Antelope
probably will sound ont the industry for another conference.
Whether other important producers would consent to discuss quotas
again is problematical, in view of
the feeling engendered at the
last conference. Some of these
point out that Roan Antelope had
an opportunity to co-operate, and
they believe they are in as. favorable a position as that company, so
far as low-cost production and financial resources are concerned.
They also argue that the present is
as good a time as any for the light
to the finish in the industry which
they believe is inevitable, especially
iu the foreign fields. They further
maintain that only in this way can
real stabilization of prices in the
industry abroad be brought about.

The Floral Assets of the C.P.R.
«&?»V> &®i$ %*&*&&ft$rW\L
tpper—r-nrilcna mill fountain nt Kenorn Station.
Lower—WoodMock  Station  icroumlx.
Flowers are among the assets of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. It is tho policy of the Company to
establish permanent flower gardens at every station
along the long line of track stretched across the con-
t'nent.
In the very early days of the railroad the. pioneers
were too busy attending to the task of opening up new
roads to give much attention to flowers, yet even back
In tlie early days one of the C. P. It. employees produced a few varieties of flower seeds 4n his own plot
and distributed them amongst his friends at some of
the stations .with the object of starting flower gardens
along the line. This took place over 30 years ago,
and to-day the Company spends a considerable amount
producing and distributing seeds and shrubs of all
kinds to station agents along the lines. The Company
maintains a floral department with headquarters al
•he Windsor Street Station in Montreal.
In carrying out this work a great number of trees,
seeds and perennial plants are used annually. Suitable trees such as ash, elm and maple, are supplied,
and shrubbery suoh as honey-suckle, lilac, barberra,
elder, spirea. weigelia and many other varieties together with a long list of tied flowers. Vines are also
supplied to cover •buildings and fences surrounding
stations. For this purpose Virginia creepers and
'apanese ivy are considered hest.
During the pa:;t thirty yr-ars tho encouraging influ
ence of the C. P. R. gardens has materially assisted in
the inauguration of floral societies all over the country, many of the officials of the Company being members of these societies. It is pleasing to remember
that the work in connection with the gardens is credited directly to tlie agents and employees of the station, for it is carried out mostly in their own time,
through their enthusiasm in beautifying the stations
of which they are in charge. The C. P. R. recognizes
this effort and muoh interest is aroused by the annual
competitions on both eastern and western lines of the
Company for the finest station gardens. Extensive
layouts do not enter into the contest but the gardens
that have shown the most improvement during the
year are the ones that carry off the honors. Representatives from the floral department tour the lines
each year, sizing up the gardens and deciding the
winner. Substantial money prizes are awarded each
year.
The floral department of the Canadian Pacific Is
constantly in touch with horticultural institutions, including agricultural colleges and societies, so that no
stone is left unturned to keep up to the very latest
standard,
BERYL AND BANANAS
Jill
To which should be added another "B"—Bermuda.
Perhaps it seems strange to link "a silicate of
beryllium and aluminium, which", as the dictionary
puts it, "when transoarent flashes blue and green/'
with the familiar yellow fruit that, bo sururiBingly,
when you find it growing, is upside down and green.
It is strange. But then it is just as strange to leave
the snow and ice of Canada and less than 60 hours
latsr to find oneself in the gentle, sub-tropic warmth
of Bermuda.
"Beryl", as a metaphor, expresses the transparent
beauty of the seas around Bermuda; bananas are the
least Btrante of tbe many luscious fruits with which
the island abounds. It is a fascinating combination of
ancient and modern that one reaches by 20,021 ton
Canad'an Pacific Duchess liners sailing from New
Yoric every Wednesday and Saturday. No motors are
allowed in the is'and—yet there is an ultra-modern
Diesel-electric railwav. A "cow's breakfast" hat, a
sketch of a shirt, and nondescript pants held ud by
a one-strap "gallus" suffice laughing darkies" for
costume, yet five minutes from where the Duchess of
York and Duchess of Atholl dock is the up-to-date
Hamilton Hotel, Bermuda's largest hostelry. Only
a 20 minute walk separates ship and Princess Hotel,
while short drives or launch trips reach many other
delightful inns and guest houses.
Canadians in increasing numbers are making
Bermuda their winter playground, more so since the
inauguration last year of steamship service by trana-
Atlantic liners.
(A) Stepping from ship to street.
(B) "Have a banana!" A bright-bued chameleon
winked a bright eye and dodged when the young lady
approached the tree—otherwise it was just like picking
an apple in the orchard back home.
(C) Ancient and modern! The palatial Hamilton
Hotel is in effective contrast with the horse-drawn
carriage.

NOTES
i
Oil burners have been placed under the coke ovens during the strike.
If they were allowed to cool off they
would become useless.
Work at the smelter, concentrating mill and coke plant on Thursday consisted of cleaning out so
that less difficulty would be experienced when starting up.
If the strike is .carried on for a
lengthy period many persons, both
married and single, are going to
suffer hardships.
If the Granby Co. decided not to
resume operations, it is estimated
that 35 per cent of Anyox population
would immediately apply for government relief and another 30 or 35
per cent within a few months.
Accommodation has been made
at the Mine for 35 police.
It is reported that Bradley visited
Anyox in December last.
W. Smith, former constable at
Anyox, was among the police on
Tuesday from Prince Rupert.

In the Preliminary Mining Report for 1932 recently issued by the
Department of Mines, a report of
last year's activities is given by
every Resident Mining Engineer.
Dr. J. T. Mandy, resident engineer
for the Northwestern Mining Division No. 1 in his report on the Alice
Arm section, states:
"Some stripping has been carried
out on the Alice claim of the Esperanza Mines, Ltd. On theSuin
mit and Wildcat groups, stripping
and tunnelling has been carried ont
by A. Davidson of Alice Arm.
Encouraging widths of chalcopyrite ore with appreciable gold values
in places have been uncovered on
the Wildcat, and cross cutting on
this property will be continued
during the winter. On the Vanguard, stripping and open-cutting
by M. Peterson of Alice Arm has
uncovered a width of 15 feet of
vein matter with bunchy mineralization of chalcopyrite, galena, pyrite aud grey-copper carrying good
silver values with an appreciable
gold content. On the Lucky Strike
J. Hauber of Alice Arm, has uncovered a width of 17 feet of vein
structure carrying from $1.20 to
i.OO in gold per ton in a surface
cross-cut. On the Tyee group. A.
McPhail of Alice Arm. has carried
out extensive stripping and some
open-cutting aud thereby appreci
ably extended continuity, widths
md mineralization of the promising
silver lead-zinc showings on this
property. On the Last Cbance, A.
McPhail has also stripped and
traced a new discovery of a vein
about 8 feet wide, well mineralized
with chalcopyrite. galena and zinc-
blende. On the Moose group, J.
Strombeek of Alice Arm. has advanced the lower tunnel 80 feet on
a siliceous leplacement zone carrying sulphide mineralization with
silver1 values along parallel cross-
fractures, and has also discovered
a small quartz vein carrying $8.00
iu gold per ton.
"The lode-gold possibilities ofthe
Upper Kitsault valley are referred
to in Bulletin No. 3,1932. Interest
in Alice Arm is now being aroused
in opportunities for individual leasing operations on some properties
with potentialities for high grade
silver ore and it is hoped that negotiations now proceeding will be
successful in permitting the undertaking of such operations, successful results from which will be quite
generally beneficial to the future
of Alice Arm. Some prospecting
was also carried out iu the Illiance
River area."

"The decrease in freight car
loadings which began in 1U30 has
continued almost uninterruptedly.
In 1931 up to the eml of the first
week of December. 058 359 less
freight cars had b.een loaded on uii
Canadian Railways than tor the
same period of the previous year.
During the same period of this
year 376,016 less cars were loaded
than in 1931. The decline in passenger business has been relatively the same. The resultant effect upon railway earnings has
been naturally disastrous. For tbe
first ten months of l!t;<l Canadian
Pacific gross revenue declined
22.1 per cent, as compared with
that of 1930. Fur the first ten
months of this year uow closing
there was a further decline of
16.4 per cent. The decline continues, and there certainly appears to be no evidence in sight
that for many years we shall sec
them entirely eliminated and our
earnings back where tliev were in
1928."—E. W.. Beatty, K C, Chairman and President, Canadian Pacific Railway, in his review ot
1932.
In the vanguard of the winter
vacation traffic to the South
Seas and the Orient, the Canadian Pacific liner "Empress of
Japan" cleared the Narrows at
Vancouver January 14 with a
list of 411 passengers.
Recent payment by Great Britain of $95,550,000 war debt instalment, reminds old-timers of the
war days when $96,000,000 In gold
was shipped by Canadian Pacific
Express from Asia to England.
viaCanada.and was carried across
the Dominion on a special Canadian Pacific .train, having absolute right-of-way. The train travelled without lights and was protected by scores of armed guards.
"Dark and uncertain as the outlook may appear to the casual observer, I still think that in this
wider field the year has not been
without important developments
leading towards trade stabilization and encouragement."—E. VV.
Beatty, K.C., Chairman and President, Canadian Pacific Railway,
in his review of 1932.

Rapidly Increasing
Canada stands ou the threshold
of the greatest gold production in
her history. During the year just
passed, approximately $63,500,000
or nearly enough to meet the t ewnt
British war delit payment to the

mines of four provinces. But, according to mining men and prospectors, 1933 will show new re
oords.
