The prevailing low price of silver and zinc and an over-production   of   copper,   has    temporary
halted   the   prosperous condition
mining has enjoyed in the province
for the past few years.   The ill
effects caused by low prices and
over-production are not confined
to any special part of the province
or Dominion.    Every silver and
copper mining camp is effected,
not only in Canada, but throughout the world.   The Alice Arm
and Anyox   district is fortunate,
for no mine has yet been closed
down   due   to depressed prices.
The ore body at the Toric is still
being developed, and the Esperanza mine is also being operated by
a   small force.     Plans are also
made to develop the Tiger property this year with a diamond drill.
A number of men have been discharged at Anyox, and the working hours have been cut a few
days per month, but   no   wide
spread hardship, such as prevails
in   some other camps has been
entailed.    Alice Arm will probab
ly emerge from the present temporary   depression   with   a  brighter
outlook than  ever.    Its big ore
bodies will be more fully developed
and mining on a big scale will be
carried on as soon as the price of
silver regains last year's level.  Development  has proved that   the
hills adjacent to Alice Arm contains big bodies of ore, and from
present   indications they  will  be
mined as soon as price conditions
of metals are favorable.
The new Anyox Community
League Council will shortly be
installed in office, and ready to
tackle the problems of the coming
year. The new Council is composed of last year's councillors,
with the exception of two. We
wish them the best of luck during
the coming year, and hope that
the Community League will be as
prosperous and popular at the
close of the year as at the beginning.

Invitation Given To B.
C. Sportsmen To Attend
Championships
New Westminster, March 1st.—
Invitations to participate in the 19-
30 British Columbia Amateur Boxing1 and Wrestling championships
to be staged in New Westminster
on March 27 and 28, are being
mailed out to all athletic clubs in
the province by the N. W. A. A. A.
From the material on hand in
Vancouver, New Westminster and
the Fraser Valley, the forthcoming
event promises to be the largest in
years. In order, however, to make
the championships more provincial
wide in scope, an effort is being
made to induce athletes from distant points to make the trip and
compete in the Royal City. Already it is known that Britannia
Mines is sending several boys; Victoria is lining up a string from the
Capital City and an entry is expected from as far north as Anyox
where a live organization is known
to be operating.
Gold and silver medals will be
awarded to the winners of the various events which will include a
complete card from light to heavy
in both wrestling and boxing.
Entry forms are being mailed out
to ail known athletic clubs. Unattached athletes may obtain forms
from Norman Macdonald, 305 Columbia East, New Westminster,
who will supply any information
desired.
The new security frauds prevent
ion act will be administered firmly
but in a sane and fair manner that
will guard against disaster to general business, Hon. R. H. Pooley,
attorney general, told the legislature in moving the second reading
of the bill.
Sweden's iron ore fields, which
were worked as far back as the
thirteenth century, are estimated
still to contain more than 275,500,-
000 tons of high grade ore.
Ore and concentrates shipped
from British Columbia to Tacoma
smelter in 1929 amounted to 218,-
087 tons, with a value of $14,094,-
572.

Low   Price   Metals   Caused
Closing Duthie Mine
The prevailing low price of silver,

of the closing of the Duthie mine
near Smithers. Sixty men are affected. Several families have decided to stay at the mine, anticipating an early resumption of operations.

First reading was given in the

bill adding the Northwest Territory
to Yukon Constituency. The measure was introduced by Hon. Lucien
Cannon, solicitor-general.
When the bill comes up for second reading, strong opposition is
sxpected from the Conservative
benches.
World's largest iron deposits arc
said to exist in the State of Minas
Geraes, Brazil.    They are  estimat-
d to contain some 12,000,000,000

Field For  Copper  Is
Expanding
The Held for copper is continually expanding. An example is
the printed page, the type for
which is usually cast automatically
from brass matrices. About 500,-
000,000 of these brass matrices are
in service today in newspaper and
general printing plants throughout
the world.
One of the leading clock and
watch manufacturers alone consumes about 1,150,000 pounds of
brass annually. A single rapid
transit system in New York requires about 650,000 pounds of copper and brass each year for service
use. in addition to more than 200,-
000,000 feet of copper wire and
cable. Feminine vanity creates a
market of 25,000 pounds of oopper
a year in the manufacture of
rouge boxes and compacts by one
firm.
N. Timmins Gives Up Owen
Lake Property
The Owen Lake property has
been given up by Mr. Timmins of
Montreal who had it under option
and who has done a great deal of
development on it during' the past
year, says the Omineca Herald.
The ore was not the particular ore
which he was looking for. Mr. Taylor will once again be in charge and
it is understood that he proposes to
continue the development work and
bring it to the producing stage.
Sherritt-Gordon   Will
Be Producing
Soon
Assurance that the Sherritt Gordon Mine will be ready to go into
production by the end of the current
year is given by officials in their latest statement. It was understood
formerly that Sherritt was only
waiting for completion of the Hudson Bay smelter before shipping
their concentrates. It is expected
that some 1,500 tons of concentrates daily will be shipped.
Walter E. Gilbert, pilot of the
Western Canada Airways planes,
who did considerable flying in the

He is flying the mail north to posts
in the vicinity of Athabasca and
Slave Lukes, and brings out furs
on the return trip. Mrs. Gilbert is
with him at Fort McMurray.

FIND PRIMEVAL AXE
Anthropologists in Canada are
" all excited over the discovery
during the construction of the
Royal York Golf course, Toronto,
bf a finely preserved bronze axe
head, still capable of doing hefty
work in the hands of a determined
man. Some believe that it is an
Indian implement, but many more
Bay it is an authentic relic of the
Bronze Age, perhaps a score of
thousand years old and going back
to the dim beginnings of humanity.
Beautifully balanced and still quite
sharp, the years have left their
traces on the axe and there are
even to be seem markings where
leather strips bound it to the handle. Within sight of a great city
where once Indians prowled ana
long centuries before them, primitive men fought with monsters, the
place where it was picked up will
soon be the scene of prolfers teeing
off or negotiating difficult bunkers. The course will be open for
play next Spring.
