Annual Report Granby
Co. Shows Small Sales
Copper In 1933
The Annual Report of the
Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power- Co. Ltd., whioh
was reoently issued, states that the
oompany produced in 1933 5,231
ounces of gold. 266,155 ounces of
silver and 34,459.581 pounds of
copper, compared with 4,054
ounces of gold, 263,091 ounces of
silver and 38,648,820 pounds of
copper in 1932. This output came
entirely from the Anyox properties
as the Allenby plant is shut down
due to the low price of copper.
The metal sold during the year
amounted to 4,300,424 pounds of
copper, 87,334 ounces of silver and
2,350 ounces of gold, and earnings
were figured on these sales, together with miscellaneous earnings of
$172,405. The net cost of producing copper during 1933 was 6.74
cents before depreciation, but after
credits for gold and silver and
miscellaneous earnings.
Copper in inventory is carried at
7.1 cents a pound. Goldin inventory is valued at $20.00 an ounce,
and silver at 25.7 cents an ounce.
Charles Bocking, President,
states in the report that the company mined 1,404,519 tons of ore
from the Hidden Creek mine and
128,124 tons from the Bonanza
mine or a total of 1,532,643 tons in
1933. The net decrease in ore reserves at the Hidden Creek and
Bonanza mines in 1933 was 612,861
tons.
Mr. Bocking points out that a
recalculation of ore reserves made
during the year shows that at the
end of the year the reserves at
Hidden Creek and Bonanza mines
were as follows: Hidden Creek,
3,426,700 tons; Bonanza, 138,131.
At the end of 1932 the ore reserves
were 3,870,365 and 307,327 respect
ively. The net decrease in ore re'
serves in the Hidden Creek and
Bonanza mines during the year
amounted to 612,861 tons.
As foreoast in last year's report,
at the present rate of extraction
and unless new ore is found, the
recoverable ore reserves of the
Anyox mines will be exhausted iu
about two years.
The ore reserves at Copper
Mountain Mine remain the same
as in 1932 at 9,885,069 tons.
The concentrator handled 1,534,-
200 tons of ore averaging 1.31 per
cent, of oopper, with recovery of
89.58 per cent of the copper in the
feed. This oompares with 1,740,-

T
Boy Scouts Celebrated St.
Georges's Day
As many of the Boy Scouts'of
AnyOx were engaged for various
duties at the piano reoital given
by Miss Malkin on Monday, April
23rd. it was decided to celebrate
St. George's Day on Saturday the
21st.,, A hike to Isaac's Creek,
some community singing, and a
glorious feed of red-hot weiners
made the oooasion memorable.
With the continued fine weather
many more such hikes, with the
necessary trimmings, are being
anticipated.
Warm Weather Speeds
Up Gardeners
The hottest weather ever experienced in the month of April visited
the distriot this week, when local
thermometers registered between
70 and 80 degrees of heat. On
Thursday however, it cooled off to
the usual April temperature.
At Alice Arm the trees are breaking into leaf, the fobius are busy in
the gardens and the abundant yellow violets and salmon berry blossoms are already in bloom.
The warm weather speeded up
the local gardeners, some of whom
have already planted their plots,
while others are busy preparing
the soil. While a few have vegetable plants already sprouted. A
walk around the town reveals the
fact that almost everyone has disposed of the winter's refuse and
yards and gardens are neat and
clean.

She triumph irf tenuis
Forlorn it stood upon the stage,
That object grim.and bare;
Ml  chipped'and1* scratched' and
worn with age,
It cringed beneath the glare.
Bereft of parts, its nakedness
No doubt it realized;
And for its scant and shabby dress
Meekly apologised.
On that piano stark and bare,
The wondering audience gazed.
Could genius find an outlet there?
The thought left them amazed.
Came Ursula: Lol instantly
All doubt was put to flight;
Instead were joy and gladness too,
And unalloyed delight.
Beneath the magic of her power,
That instrument despised
Owned her the mistress of the hour,
And stood revitalized.
On it, with those well trained hands
And lovely artistry,
She carried us to other lands,
In sheerest ecstacy.
We watched the Polish peasants
dance.
We saw reflections fair,
As though a gorgeous painted scene
Were spread before us there.
We heard Norwegians singing, too,
An air they knew full well;
And pictured Chopin's desperate
rage    .
When his loved Warsaw fell.
And finally we found ourselves
Upon Italia's shore,
Whose waters, by a miracle,
The great St. Francis bore.
So now with reverence we gaze,
Upon those battered keys,
For Ursula, to golden realms,
Transported us on these.

I. 0. D. E. Ladies Gratified
With Recital
The ladies of the Collison of
Kincolith Chapter, I. O. D. E., are
being warmly commended for their
aotion in arranging for the recent
visit of Ursula Malkin, who gave a
memorable piano recital in Anyox
reoently. The visit of. an artist of
this calibre to these parts is a most
rare occurrence and the recital
proved to be a special treat to all
who attended it. In thanking all
those who in any way assisted in
the arrangements for the recital,
the members of the Chapter desire
to reiterate that its sole object was
to provide a real musical treat for
the people of the district

attendance at the Recreation Hall,
to enjoy the piano recital which
was given them free by Miss Ursula
Malkin. Every number presented
.—and Miss Malkin was.most «£>>•*•
erous with the selections she had
chosen for the occasion—was well
received and thoroughly enjoyed.
Alice Arm Notes
Mrs. H. Nucich arrived home on
Thursday from Anyox, where she
has been visiting her daughter,
Mrs. J. McColl.
Constable Geo. Blaney arrived
in town from Anyox on Thursday
on departmental business.
Ed. Skoglund, who has spent
the winter months at Anyox arrived home on Thursday.
Rev. W. A. Delap, accompanied,
by his wife, arrived in town on
Saturday on board the Anglican
Mission launch Northern Cross.
He held Evening Service at St.
Michael's Church on Sunday evening which was greatly appreciated.
Rev. Delap was formerly minister
at Telegraph Creek.
As part of the Empire Day celebration on May 24th. a dance will
be held at the Alice Arm Hotel on
the evening of May 23rd. Harry
Ward's orchestra of Anyox will
provide the music, and in addition
to looal people a large number is
expeoted to arrive from Anyox for
the danoe and the holiday on the
24th.
Mrs. Abraham recited: "The
Green Eye of the Little Yellow
God," with nice expression and
feeling. As an enoore she gave
"The Red Hot Poultice." The
point of this humorous number
does not appear until the last line
of the piece, and it convulsed the
house.
Ursula Malkin Thrilled
Anyox Audience At
Piano Recital
A piano reoital that will be long
remembered by Anyox folk was
that given in the Recreation Hall
on Monday, April 23rd. by Ursula
Malkin. It..whs a brilliant performance, and all the more enjoyable by reason of the fact that such
a talented artiste rarely visits this
outpost of the Province.
Miss Malkin pleased everyone,
not only with her splendid accomplishments, but also her charming
personality. She won her audience
right from the start, and the fact
that the piano upon which she
played was altogether too inadequate to do her full justice, made
her performance all the more impressive. It was an example of
the triumph of genius, an exception to the rule that good work can
•mflfbe done upon a poor instrument.
In the group of Sonatas by
Mozart the artiste adhered faithfully to the intentions of the composer, the Adantino movement
being given with beautiful expression. Grieg's Ballade in the form
of variations on a Morwegian melody proved Miss Malkin's splendid
versatility. Chopin's Etudes, with
which many of the audience were
familiar, were rendered with rare
beauty and feeling, especially Opus
10, No. 12. This number, written
by the oomposer on his learning of
the fall of his native city of Warsaw to the Russians, was splendidly interpreted.
By way of contrast the group of
Chopin's Mazurkas were invested
with a grace, daintiness and brilliance that charmed everyone.
Debussy's "Reflections on the Water" showed a delicate touch and
feeling as the noble pioture was
unfolded.
Liszt's massive number: "St.
Francis Walking on the Water,"
brought out the full power of this
earnest young artiste, who gave it
a strength and majesty that was
most impressive. As an extra
number Miss Malkin played a delightful prelude by a young composer now resident in Moscow.
One cannot but comment upon the ,
ability and power of the left hand
of this charming artiste. The
power aud precision of this member
as it responded to every command
of her will, was remarkable.
A pleasing interlude of the reoital was the appearance of Mrs. A.
Abraham, an elocutionist of grace
and charm, reoently from Belfast.

The budget deficit of the Federal
Government was shown last week
to be 135 millions of dollars. The
previous year it was 157 millions.
At this rate of reduction it will be
several years yet before the people
of Canada will be presented with a
balanced budget. There is one
consolation, however, the deficit
this year was an improvement over
last year, and that is something to
be grateful for.
The Federal Government has decided to levy a ten per cent, tax on
the price of gold mined in Canada.
It is a good tax when applied to
those companies who are mining a
good grade of ore and paying
handsome dividends. But when
this additional tax is levied on gold
that is saved as a by-product by
copper mining companies and
others who are mining a low grade
ore and struggling to keep in operation until higher prices prevail for
base metals, then the tax is a bad
one. All taxes on the mining industry should be levied on profits.
At present a company that is losing
money is paying just as high taxes
as a big dividend payer.
The plan to re-monetize silver in
the United States has received
many rebutts, but the promoters of
the scheme are undaunted. It is
very probable that their efforts will
eventually be crowned with success.
The big obstacle is that other big
nations do not seem to be interested
in re-monetizing the white metal.
If the big European countries were
sympathetic to the scheme it would
considerably facilitate the movement in the United States. A rise
of only ten cents an ounce above
present prices should result in a
boom in silver mining camps, including Alice Arm, where large
deposits are known to exist.
If Mr. Clive Planta, M. L. A. for
the Peace River District has any!
authoritative information for his
statements recently made in Vancouver, then the outlet to tidewater
for the Peace River railway will be
in the north, either at Stewart or
Prince Rupert, and the door will be
bolted and barred to Vancouver.
The businessmen of Vancouver will
no doubt raise a terrific rumpus if a
northern port is chosen as the terminus, but the farmers of the great
wheat growing plains of the Peace
will be pleased when they learn
that their transportation costs will
be half when they are able to ship
to a near northern port instead of
being forced to pay tribute to Vancouver by shipping their wheat and
other products the long route to
Vancouver would entail.
Ten Per Cent. Tax On'
Gold Criticized
The Financial News, Vancouver
For a budget which does not aim
to collect a larger total of money
through tariffs or taxation the
Rhodes financial programme tabled
in the House of Commons this week
has raised an uncommon storm.
It is the clause concerning a new
10 per cent, tax on gold produced
by Canadian mines that has aroused
most protest. This tax on gold
does not give the government additional income. It merely replaces
half the sugar tax. There was no
public agitation or dissatisfaction
with the sugar tax, and the gold
industry, hitherto taxed only on
profits by the Dominion Government, was attracting capital from
all over the world because of the
favorable government treatment.
The gold helped to pay Canada's
foreign debts. Hon. Wesley Gordon has specifically stated that there
would be no such tax not more
than 10 days before budget day.
So, all in all, the gold mine operators, brokers, etc., felt that the
government, in attempting to be
popular with its partial recission of
the sugar tax, has broken its word
and taken an unnecessarily disturbing way of collecting no more
money than it got without ill-effects
from the sugar tax last year.
March Output of Pioneer
Was $260,000
Pioneer Gold Mines had its best
production record in March, when
■a total of $260,000 worth of gold
was produced at the mine. Opera-,
ting expenses totalled $70,000,
leaving a net profit before accounting for depletion and taxation of
$190,000.
The best previous month was in
January, when a total of $240,000
worth of gold was produced. On
a basis of daily production, February was a little higher than March,
but that being a short month the
month's total appeared smaller.
For the twelve months the company has had profits totalling $1,
821,000, before taxes and depletion
It pays 60 cents a share. There
are 1,751,750 shares issued, so that
net profits after all charges will
more than cover dividend require-
menis, being around a dollar a share.
No Bidders at Sale Engineer
Mine Near Atlin
No bidders being on hand, the
sheriff's sale of the famous Engineer mine in the Atlin district, set
for April 21st. at Prince Rupert,
was further postponed until June
20th. The sale has already been
postponed on several occasions for
apparent lack of interest on the
part of bidders.
A good laugh is a good cure.

Princess Junto, sister of tbe
Emperor of Manchukuo, with
her husband T. K. Cheng, were
passengers aboard the Duchess of
Richmond recently. They travelled across Canada via Canadian Paclfie Railway and sailed
from Vancouver to the Orient on
the liner Empress of Canada.
Heaviest Easter traffic in yean
with main line trains running in
extra sections and with added
coaches and parlor cars on branch
line trains, Canadian Pacific Railway, was reported over the recent
holiday, right across the Dominion. Special low fares attracted many passengers.
In the annual statement of the
C. P. R. tor last year, published
recently, it was brought out that
as a result of decreased earnings
the great majority of railway employees have taken a cut of fifteen per cent, ln wages; higher
officers have been reduced 20%
and the Company's directors have
had a 25% cut ln their fees, while
E. W. Beatty, Chairman and
President, has at his own request
taken a reduction of forty per
cent.
Eight days only after they had
witnessed the Grand National
classic at Aintree, near Liverpool, a number of Torontonians
reached their homes in lime for
the Easter celebrations. The
achievement was made possible
by a fast voyage of the Duchess
of Richmond under her new commander, Captain Arthur Rothwell.

WhereTo 8pendAnEnjo\ableVvcaiion
I.NCK the annual vacation
has become a definite part
of modern life, tbe decision
as to where it will be spent
is of considerable importance. Canada has a particular ntpneal to the vacationist, for it has an
unusual variety of attractions, which
may be enjoyed at reasonable cost.
Recreation Areas Easily
Reached
For most people, the summer
vaoation is limited to a few weeks
and is really shortened by the time
U9ed in travelling to and from the
locality selected. Canada has an
extensive system of good roads and
excellent railway services which
greatly facilitate travel between
provinces.
Attractions Cover Wide
Range
Canada presents a striking diversity of natural features—the rugged
and picturesque Atlantic coast; the
St. Lawrence river and Great Lakes,
the world's greatest inland waterway; the Laurentian mountains,
land of forest and stream; the
prairies; the majestic Rockies; and
the beautiful Pacific coast. Each
of these areas has its own attractions of scenic beauty and opportunities for enjoyable recreation.
Fishing, hunting, camping, canoeing, and mountain-climbing may
ill be enjoyed under ideal conditions, while golf and tennis may be
played practically everywhere. Accommodation includes everything
from camp site to luxurious hotel
Those to whom economy is a
matter of concern may spend a
pleasant vacation close to nature,
ait surprisingly small oost.
Travel Information
Gladly Furnished
The National Development Bureau,
Department of the Interior at
Ottawa, has prepared a series of
automobile road maps, showing
the main routes from one province
to another, also a number of interesting booklets, including "Vacations in Canada", which describe

Benny Windle and Jack
McEvoy Battle To
A Draw
After a gory battle which lasted
the scheduled six rounds, the fight
between Bennie Windle, of Anyox,
and Jack McEvoy of Prince Rupert,
at the Gymnasium on Wednesday
night last ended in a draw. This
fight was to decide the welter-weight
championship of Northern British
Columbia, and aroused much interest in the district. A trophy cup
for the winner, donated by Pete
Cravatto, manager of Tip Top
Tailors Prince Rupert was exhibited
at the ringside. The decision met
with the disapproval of a large
number of fans, who maintained
that McEvoy had decidedly the
edge on the Anyox champion.
The card opened with two exhibition bouts by local boys, the first
being beiween George Kent and
Bruce McMaster and the second
between Robert Dresser and Bobby
Kent. Both were good mix-ups,
the boys displaying good material
which is worth developing.
The next item was a go between
Amy Harris of the Beach and Bill
Prime of the Mine. Prime was of
the real tough and slogging order,
Amy being knocked out in the first
round and taking the count.
The next bout' was also a one-
round affair, but with a difference.
Bronson Hunt, of Prince Rupert,
started'to mix it with Britannia Kid
of the Mine, but dislocated his
shoulder right at the start. He
continued fighting until the doctors
intervened, when the dislocation
was reduced and the fight called off.
Tremendous interest was taken
in the go between Frank Gibson, of
the Beach, and Bob Pickton, of the
Mine, who fought at 164 and 172
pounds respectively. Gibson fought
well, trying hard to finish his opponent in the first one or two rounds.
Picton avoided this and gradually
wore down the railroad man, who
in the third round was obviously
lacking in wind. Gibson continued
to fight gamely, but was knocked
down in the fourth round and
twice in the fifth, finally taking the
full count. Later in the evening he
publicly challenged Picton for another fight, the later at Once accepting the challenge.
The main event brought together
Windle and McEvoy for the welterweight championship of Northern
B. C, and went the full six rounds
to a no-decision finish. In the first
round, punches were traded willingly, and in the second Windle received a blow on an already injured eye
and the blood began to flow. The
third round Windle's eye swelled
rapidly, and a punch on the nose
made that member bleed badly.
The blood from these wounds bothered him a lot, but his ring generalship saved him from further punishment. In the fourth round his
troubles began to tell and he had to

Outdoor Sports Make Record

Encouraged by the fine weather,
which has made an extra early
start this year and appears likely
to continue, devotees of golf and
tennis have lost no time in following their favorite sport. The Golf
Clnbs are busy with tournaments

being undoubtedly McEvoy's. He
came back strongly in tbe fifth, but
could not land a blow of any force
on McEvoy, who is very clever at
evading and dodging. The sixth
round was much the same as the
fifth, both fighters trying hard to
get in the finishing punch. Body
punches were traded freely throughout but McEvoy received no damage
to his face and was quite fresh at
the finish. John Coggins refereed
the fights, the judges being J. Evans
and W. Patterson, both of Anyox.
J. Gillies' Orchestra dispensed music
during the intervals. The A. C. L.
are again to be congratulated on
putting up an excellent fight card.

THAT comfort in ocean travel is fast giving place to luxury is established by the fact that the world
renowned "Empresses" and "Duchesses" of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, already known by world
travellers for their unparalleled service, have now been equipped for the entertainment of their passengers with the latest Sound and Talking Moving Picture attractions.
As each of these floating palaces drew into their home ports this month, Northern Electric installing engineers swarmed aboard with tools and equipment, and when they put to sea again, the Empresses of "Canada", "Asia", "Australia", "Japan" and "Russia"; and the DuchesBes of "Bedford",
"York" and "Richmond", carried with them as unlisted passengers the shadowy impersonations of
the leading orbs in the Stella firmament of the Screen, and their many satellites who, through the medium of a folding screen and up-to-date projection equipment concealed in the lounge, will, in their own
inimitable manner, entertain globe-trotters as they measurably glide to and from the romantic ports
of the Seven Seas. The "Empress of Britain" was fitted for Sound Pictures, when she was put into
; commission two years ago, and the "Duchess of Atholl" will be similarly treated upon her first trip
to Montreal this Spring,
