Anyox Basketball Games
On Friday And
In their contests last Friday and
Monday Beach Ladies gave an excellent account of themselves coming within touch of victory often
on both occasions. In last Friday's
game with the Mine the score stood
10-9 at half time rising 16-10 at the
end. Fortunately for tbe Mine
only a few minutes of play remained
after Julia Calderoni was banished
and Annie Scott was ruled off shortly after.
The teams were: Mine: M. Rowland; A. McLachlan; M. Marriot,
2; J. Calderoni, 5; H. Calderoni, 9;
V. Watson.    Total—16.
Beach: P. O'Neill, 6; V. Eve;
M. O'Neill; T. O'Neill; A. Scott, 2;
T. Gordon; D. Greenwood, 5. Total—13.
High  School  Win   From
Beach Ladies
Against the students on Monday
the Beach Ladies waged a rough
battle resulting in numerous casul-
ties and a lot of referee baiting. The
fans will have to restrain their remarks at the expense of the officials
and players or very soon there will
be no officials, no players, and no
occasion for raucous comment. The
accidents of Monday's game favored
the school girls who, although set-
ing the pace throughout faced an 8
all score with two minutes to go.
Miss Greenwood, however, was now
crippled and Miss Pat O'Neill was
slowed up after a crash for which
L. Dresser obtained a free throw
which was the only one of twelve
which counted. The students add
ed another basket in the dying moments of the game making it 11-8.
The teams were: School: L.
Dresser, 5; F. Cameron, 2; M.
Cloke; J. McDonald; W. Cameron;
K. Eve; F. Dodsworth; M. Dresser 4.   Total—11.

New Company Formed
To Operate North
The North Star Ore & Smelting
Co. was recently incorporated at
Victoria for the purpose of developing the North Star mine. Capitalization is $100,000.
The above company makes still
another that will operate in the
Alice Arm district during the present year.
The North Star joins the Dolly
Varden and has been developed for
over a year in a small way. Capital has been supplied by Chicago
Ore Body Cut In No. 3
Tunnel at Tiger
Development work at the Tiger
is still being concentrated in No. 3
tunnel. The ore body which we
reported encountered a few weeks
ago has been cut through and has a
width of nearly nine feet. The ore
is of a good milling grade.
The encountering of this ore
ledge was unexpected; surface indications not showing its existence.
Its extent can not be determined
until drifts have been made on it.
Work is being pushed as rapidly
as possible in No. 3 tunnel in order
to encounter the 14 ft. ore ledge
crosscut by the No. 2 tunnel. The
tunnel is now in 300 ft.
ox  Intermediates
Again Going Strong
Once again there is an Intermediate Basketball Section with three
teams, High School, Rinky Dinks
and Concentrator. The first two
teams staged an interesting exhibition on Monday, the students winning 32-18.
The teams were: High School:
H. Deeth, 2; S. Barclay, 14; C.
Hill, 2; J. Gillies, 12; Brown, 2;
Kent.   Total—32.
Rinky Dinks: Dresser, 6; Macdonald, &; Armstrong, 6; Flye;
Dunwoodie.    Total—18.

Drifting on Homeguard
Ledge Proceeding
Angus McLeod, who recently
examined the Homeguard property
on behalf of the Dalhouse Mining
Co. of Victoria, was well pleased
with the extent of the ore showings
and the favorable location of the
property. He spent nearly a week
at the mine.
Development work by the Dalhousie Co. is being carried on.
Work is being pushed on the drift
being driven on the silver ledge at
present. A recent sample from
this drift gave returns of .80 gold,
21 ozs. silver and .60 copper per
ton. A total value of $28.18 per
A surface sample taken from
another ledge gave returns of
$16.78 in gold. A shot was put in
from the surface of this ledge.
The ore was found to be richer at
depth and samples were . taken
south by Mr. McLeod for assaying.

Terms of the option made between
the Britannia Mining & Smelting
Co. Ltd. and the Toric Mines Co.
Ltd. whereby the former takes over
the Toric mine have been made
The Western Canada Mining
News in its question and answer
column states:
"Toric Mines Company Limited
has a capitalization of 200,000
shares, par value $5, with 134,234
shares issued."
"Its only indebtedness is current
about $37,000, which includes the
amount for winter's food supplies
for twenty men, powder, etc."
"The terms of the deal which are
only now available, are that the
Britannia assumes current debts to
the amount of $30,000, this amount
however, to become a first mortgage on the property. If, by the
end of March next, Britannia exercises its option to purchase, it will
immediately incorporate a new
company with a capitalization of
3,000,000 shares, either of $1 par
value or no par value. Toric will
be paid 750,000 of these shares for
its property, but Britannia will have
the option to purchase them back,
as follows: 100,000 shares within
18 months at 95 cents; 150,000
shares within 'iy2 years at 95 cents;
200,000 shares within 1% years at
$1, and 300,000 shares within 5
years at $1.37)4. In the meantime
these shares shall be held in escrow.
If any option for shares is not exercised, then all other options shall
be null and void. The Toric company shall accept for any shares in
lieu of cash, debentures of the new
company. Another important point
is that if Britannia shall not exercise the option, all monies paid by
it on the said property and in' operation thereof shall be repaid to
Britannia by March 31, 1930, with
6 per cent interest, the total amount
not to exceed $35,000. These are
briefly the salient points of the

The past year was the most
prosperous in every way the
Dominion of Canada has ever enjoyed. Every industry made substantial strides and our foreign trade
figures soared to new high levels.
While the past year was a record
for general prosperity, the present
bids to surpass it. Already plans
have been made public for large
undertakings that will increase the
prosperity of the Dominion. Chief
of these are $50,000,000 to be
spent by the Canadian Pacific
Railway in building new lines in
western Canada. The Canadian
National will also increase their
mileage. This work means the
developing of that inland empire,
the Peace River Country by providing transportation, and ultimately
a railroad will be built through to
the Pacific. Stewart has been
named, among others, by the president of C. P. R. as a terminal
railroad point, and this is probably
where the western end of the road
will see the Pacific. British Columbia participated last year in the
Dominion's prosperity. Statistics
recently released show that this
province is the richest per capita
in the Dominion. The province
has advanced in every line of industry and the momentum attained
last year will unquestionably increase during 1929. Plans for the
expenditure of huge sums of money
on new enterprises have been
made, and the mining industry is
the cause of the expenditure of a
large portion of the money to be
spent. The general prosperity
should gladden the heart of the most
pessimistic. It should make us proud
to be able to call ourselves Canadians. We should rejoice that
we are living in a country that is
expanding at such a rapid rate, and
that we are able to take a part in
building up this great Dominion in
which we and future generations
can live in peace and plenty.
"In 1928 no less than 3,238,000
acres of new land have been added
to the producing area of Canada.
"Beyond all question 1928 has
been the banner year in the mineral production of Canada, yet it
seems altogether probable that in
another decade Canadians will look
back to the present time as to the
day of small things in our mining
"Since the 1927 figure (construction) was itself the highest in
recent years, it is particularly
to note that in 1928 it has been
surpassed by nearly $31,000,000,
or 17.7 per cent.
"The total external trade of Canada in the 12 months ended Nov-.
ember, 1928, reached the enormous
aggregate of $2,584,000,000, the
highest for any 12 months period
in the history of the country.
"In the first eight months of the
current fiscal year, the period from
April to November, the "total ordinary revenue of the Dominion
has reached the high aggregate of
$308,784,000, as compared with
$289,282,000 in the same period
of the preceding year—an increase
of $21,500,000 in spite of the substantial reductions of taxation included in the budget of February
last, estimated at the time to amount to some $ 19,000,000."
Kimberley   Mill   Will
Handle 6000 Tons
Arrangements for increasing the
capacity of the Kimberly concentrator from 4,000 to 6,000 tons daily
are now being rapidly effected. The
purpose of this increase in milling
capacity is essentially to augment
the ore reserves of the Sullivan
mine, in that by providing facilities
for the treatment of a larger tonnage, it will be economically possible to include material of a lower
grade than heretofore sent to the
mill. On the other hand, it is not
expected, of course, that the metallic output will be proportionately

It will be designed for a production of 1500 tons daily, according to

With the rise in the price of copper, indicated per ton profits at
Sherritt Gordon have been increased in two directions. Estimates

Anaconda Co. Seeking
New Copper Mines
Marked improvement in the copper market has started the large
companies on the hunt for copper
properties, and British Columbia is
a field for investigation. For some
time past several companies have
been seeking properties in this province, and during the last couple of
weeks Anaconda Copper Company
has had representatives at Victoria
making a careful check of government reports with a view to ascertaining the worth of groups that
have been reported on. This is one
of the best indications of the importance of copper to British Columbia, following as it does activities on the part of tho Consolidated,
Britannia and Granby companies.
Small Bachelors Not Shining
Lights In World Affairs
What chance has a bachelor to
become president of a large corporation? Or an only child? Or a
man of small physique? It may
surprise you, writes Dirk P. De
Young in Forbes Magazine, but the
chance is very slim of any of these
types becoming president of the
United States Steel Corporation or
General Motors, or any other of the
large commercial, industrial, or
banking organizations of the country.   Says Mr. De Young further:
"Most of the men holding the big
executive positions in the United
States are married men, of large
physique, and with few exceptions,
come from large families."

fanada's increasing agricultural,
^ industrial and commercial prosperity is making more and greater
demands upon transportation and
the country's railways must always
be a long way ahead of the times
in order to keep up with them.

dollars will be engaged all winter
\ building, equipping and repairing
rolling stock for one Canadian
Company reflects not only the immediate benefits of a record crop
year, but the encouraging and inspiring confidence of its directors
in the continued prosperity of the
country. This is particularly true
when one realizes that the Angus
Shops of the Canadian Pacific
which employ these sixty-five-hundred men and through them support, say, a community of at least
the wheel* (or a new 3100 locomotive.
twenty-thousand within the city of
Montreal, is not engaged in the
actual construction of its freight
cars and locomotives, that the
frames for the passenger equipment are purchased outside and
that these shops alone do not
handle the whole of the repair
work of the system, there being
other shops in the west.
The present volume of work and
the probability of further increases
are due to the orders for rolling
stock that have been placed with
various Canadian steel car construction companies. The steel
frames are built at Hamilton and
other points in Canada and are
taken to Angus where the finishing is carried out. One hundred
and six passenger cars, including
sleepers, diners, first class coaches
and other equipment will have to
be handled shortly by the Angus
shops, while at present the construction of 40 cabooses, 7 snow
ploughs and 2 rail hoists is going
on. At present, also, eleven repaired passenger cars and 120
freight cars are being turned out
daily, and every five-hours and
forty-five minutes shop time, an
overhauled and repairad 'ocomotive
is returned to service.
The Angus shops of the Canadian Pacific Railway, situated on
the eastern outskirts of Montreal,
are the largest diversified railway
shops maintained by any railway
on the continent. Thej cover 300
acres of ground and handle each
year upwards of 29,000 railroad
cars of various sorts and descriptions. The first two of the 3,100

Panama Canal
Publication by Uncle Sam ofthe
statistics of Panama Canal revenues for the year ending June 30,
1928, discloses an item of great importance to every man who grows
wheat on these western prairies and
to every district that can be tapped
by the Hudson's Bay Railway.
During the year 1927-28 there
passed through the Panama Canal
6456 vessels, which provided a revenue of nearly $27,000,000. This
makes a daily average of 17.5 ships,
each of which pays on an average
of $4,337.50 in tolls for the privilege
of passing through the Canal.
This means that every shipload
of Canadian grain passing through
the Panama Canal from the Pacific
Coast to Great Britain, contributes
$4,337.50 to the coffers of the United States. When the Hudson's
Bay Railway is in operation, Saskatchewan and Manitoba wheat will
be able to travel by the short rail
route to Fort Churchill, and thence
by the short ocean route from Fort
Churchill to Great Britain. It will
save the $4,337.50 toll whioh Uncle
Sam at present levies on every
shipload of Canadian grain passing
through his Canal.
