Annual Report of Granby
Company for Year 1930
Low Prices and Low Production Cut Profits Last Year
The annual report of the Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting and
Power Co. covering the year 1930
,-has recently been published. It
shows that the company has suffered from low prices during the
past year. Mr. Charles Hayden,
Chairman of the Board of Directors
reports in part as follows:
The refined marketable metals
produced during the year amounted
to 46,831,149 pounds of copper,
393,954 ounces of silver and 8,435
ounces of gold, compared with 60,-
854,591 pounds of copper, 428,496
ounces of silver and 10,558 ounces
of gold for 1929.
In view of the unsatisfactory
demand for copper metal, your
Directors in the early part of the
year deemed it advisable to curtail
production at both Anyox and Allenby, and in November decided to
further curtail productions by discontinuing operations entirely at
Allenby until there is an improvement in the demand for copper.
The total income for the year,
exclusive of Depreciation and Depletion, for which there was no
cash outlay, amounted to $1,476,-
284.62, the equivalent of $3.28 per
share of stock outstanding, as
compared with like figures of $4,-
179,095.89 and $9.29, respectively,
for the previous year.   The reduc
tion in income was due entirely to
decreased production and to the
lower prices received for metals as
compared with the previous year.
Distributions aggregating $2,-
362,340.93 were made to shareholders during the year, viz, February 1, $2.00; May 1, $2.00;
August 1, 75c, and November 1,
50c; or a total of $5.25 per
The net quick assets at the end
ofthe year amounted to $4,861.-
144,43, of which $3,160,542.43 was
in cash.
Capital expenditures made during
the year amounted to $119,361.66.
No capital expenditure was contemplated during the present year.

Due to the unsatisfactory demand
for copper and in order to avoid
carrying too large stocks of unsold
copper as well as to conserve cash
resourses, production was curtailed
at both the Anyox and Allenby
plants during the greater part of
year and in November the Allenby
plant was closed down entirely and
will remain so until such time as
there is an improvement in the
copper market. Caretakers and the
necessary watchmen are looking
after the plant during the shutdown period. The plant is in good
condition and operations can be
resumed on short notice whenever
No new property was acquired
during the year.
At tbe Allenby Plant certain improvements in buildings and equipment, started the previous year,

Interesting History Of
Canada's Governor
Ottawa, April 18: (Special to the
Herald). Possibly one of the most
intimate links connected with the
life of the present Earl of Bess-
borough, Governor General of Canada, with this Dominion, is that
the fourth Earl was succeeded by
his eldest son who married twice,
each time a daughter of a Govenor-
General of Canada. His first wife
was the daughter of the Earl of
Durham, to whom Canada owes so
much, and his second wife was the
, daughter of the Duke of Richmond,
who died in Canada as a result of
an animal's bite and is buried in a
Quebec church. This was the
great-uncle of the new Governor-
General. He had no sons and was
in turn succeeded by his next
brother and eventually by his third
brother, the seventh Earl. Their
sister married the Earl of Kerry,
eldest son of the then Marquis of
Landsdowne and was the aunt of
the Marquis of Landsdowne who
was another popular Governor-General. The present Earl of Bess-
borough's mother, wife of the
eighth earl, was a sister of the
Liberal peer, first Lord Wimborne.
Few, if any, British titles have a
pleasanter origin than that of the
present Earl of Bessborough, head
of the Ponsonby family in Ireland.
The family dates back to the time
of Cromwell and were in favor during the reign of Charles II. King
George I raised the Ponsonby family to the peerage when they took
the titles of Baron Bessborough and
Viscount Duncannon.
The business ability of the present Governor-General has well
been proven. He was a third-general staff officer in 1915 and at the
end of the war was a temporary
major of the special staff.   •
He holds the Russian Order of
St. Anne, 3rd class; Legion of
Honor; Order of St. Maurice and
St. Lazarus of Italy; Order of the
Redeemer of Greece and the Order
of Leopold of Belgium and a num-
ber of British titles of honor and
The Earl is 51 years of age' and
is married into a distinguished
French family. He has two children, Viscount Duncannon, aged 18,
and Lady Moira Ponsonby, aged
13. Viscoiint Duncannon will return to England in the autumn to
go to Oxford and Lady Moira will
be educated by her own governess
at Rideau Hall.
