Big Upset  Occurs In
Re-opening Basket-
Bail Games
Ra-opening with a grand flourish
after the Christmas adjournment,
basketball enthusiasts played three
good games on Monday the 8th.
with a nioe crowd pf fans attending, ln the third game quite an
upset oocurred, the Trojans inflicting a deoisive defeat on their old
enemies the Mechanics.
The first blow of the whistle sent
the B teams, Pirates and Mechanics, to face each other. This was
a hard fought game, with the
lathemen leading the score 17-12.
The teams: Pirates, K. Falconer 1,
D. MoDonald, T. Scott 5, W.
Hardy, D. Ferguson 5, B. Parsons,
J. Dodsworth I. Mechanics B.
Carter 7, Church 2, Patrick 4,
Boud 2, O'Neill, D. Hamilton 2.
In the ladies' game the Aces
trailed along behind the Spooks
and finished up on the short end of
a 29-13 score. They held their own
pluokily against a more experienced
quintette and on present showing
will give a better account of themselves at a later date. N. Salmon
was star performer for the Aoes
and K. Eve notched 12 points for
the Spooks. The teams: Aces, P.
Loudon 4, N. Salmon 7, H, Simpson, N. Wenerstrom, J. Pinokney 2,
D. Rogers. Spooks, L. Dresser 8,
M. Cloke 7, K. Eve 12, T. Gordon
2, M. Dresser.
A real tussle was witnessed in
the game between the Mechanics
and Trojans, the latter playing
their best game of the season. All
the speed and wilyness of the Mechanics availed nothing against the
alert and quick-passing Trojans,
who could do nothing wrong.
Matters were about equal in the
first half, but the machine men
wilted in the second stanza before
the onslaught of the determined
junior team. The teams: Mechanics, C. Dresser 6, W. Murray 1, I.
Davies 4, W. Watson 2, J. Buntain
8, L. Gillies 1. Trojans: B. Gillies
17, H. Dresser 5, F. Gordon 5, F.

All three games were fixtures
whioh were postponed prior to the
holiday adjournment.
Two important social events are
at present being anticipated in
Anyox. The first of these is the
Burns' Supper and Dance, to be
held in the Gymnasium on Burns'
Night, January 25th. The second
is the I. 0. D. E. Danoe on February 12th. Both events should
draw good crowds.

Anyox on December 20th. The Prince George is undergoing repairs at the Drydock, Prince
Rupert. The work is expected to take six weeks or two months, employing nearly 100 men.
She will be given her annual overhaul at the same time as repair work is being made.
Following the completion of work on the Prince George her sister ship Prince Rupert will
take her place for annual overhaul.

Delivering The Northern
Mail In Winter Calls
For Endurance
Just what mailmen in some of
the northern districts of B. C. have
to face iu the winter time is little
known to most people. Deep snow
treacherous ice, occasional open
water and absence of trails are
among their troubles, to say nothing of quick changes of temperature and the necessity of adapting
themselves accordingly.
Walter McMillan, who carries
the mail between Mill Bay and
Aiyansh, was a recent visitor to
Anyox, journeying there from Kincolith in the launch Eva A. He
told of a recent mail trip whioh
was typical of many at this time.
In company with his two partners,
Dinnie Morvern and A. S. Williams, he started from Aiyansh for
Mill Bay with a dog team, a pile
of mail, snowshoes, provisions, and
other equipment. The ice on the
river was covered with several feet
of show for some miles, making the
going slow and difficult. Every
now and then open water would be
encountered and a detour round
the land would have to be made.
This generally occurs at points
where the oountry is hilly and rough
and the safe transportation of a
pile of mail by dog team is no small
task. Evenings would bring
storms, with more snow to cope,
Nearing Mill Bay there is a
stretoh of open water to negotiate,

row boat is picked up aud paoked

For Second Hand
What about those old clothes you
do not need—that overcoat you do
not use—those shoes you have
discarded? There is someone who
will be glad to have them, someone
who will bless you for giving them
up. The members of the 1.0. D. E.
under direction of Mrs. Ruckhaber
convener of relief, have commenced
a drive for all the old clothes they
can possibly muster. These will
be sorted, repaired, and parcelled
for despatch to needy people in
outlying districts.
There are a great many such
people, and anything you can contribute in the way of discarded
apparel will be welcomed aud used
to the best possible advantage.
Don't forget socks aud stockings,
they will be repaired if necessary.
Send anything for than, woman, or

Definite improvement in Canada's
mining industry is revealed in the
official estimate of mineral production for 1933, published by the
Mining, Metallurgical and Chemical Branch of the Dominion Bureau
of Statistics at Ottawa.
The total value of production in
the mining industry amounted to
$198,253,000, an increase of 8.5
per cent, over the 1932 total of
$182,681,915, but this total figure
does not include any allowance for
the difference between the standard
price of gold and the average price
of gold for the year in Canadian
dollars; this allowance has been
computed at $23,378,000. Metals
as a group totalled $124,382,000,
an increase of 20 per cent, over the
total of $103,495,453 in 1932; fuels,
including coal, natural gas and
crude petroleum, showed a slight
falling off amounting to 3.5 per
cent.; non-metals, other than fuels
and including such minerals as asbestos, feldspar, salt, sodium,
sulphate, etc., increased 28 per
cent, to $9,898,000. Production
of construction materials reflected
conditions in the building industry
and marked a decrease of 25 per
cent, when compared with the previous year, but evidence was not
wanting during the past few months
of the year to prove an upward
trend in the mineral products of
this group.
It is in Canada's metal production that the improvement is most
marked. The metals group contains large exportable surpluses of
copper, lead and zinc and to be able
to successfully carry on under the
existing world low prices of recent
years reflects great credit upon the
management and employees of the
mines producing these metals.
In the precious metals group,
silver production has shown a decrease on account of the low price
prevailing during recent years and
because of the depletion of ore
reserves in the old Cobalt camp
and in the Mayo district of the
Yukon. Gold output is also less
by about three per cent., but its
value in Canadian funds is the
highest on record.
Copper production for the year
totalled 300,978,523 pounds valued
at $21,646,000, an increase of 22
per cent, in quantity and 42 per

cent, in value over the previous
year. With five large copper producers and with excellent refining
facilities in Ontario and Quebec
and an export market which has
been built up through the excellence
of the product, the increase of output readily reflects the improved
conditions in the countries to which
Canada sells. Copper is produced
in blister form at Anyox, British
Columbia; from concentrates at
Britannia, British Columbia; in
blister form at Flin Flon, Manitoba,
which is refined at the Canadian
Copper Refiners, Ltd. at Montreal
East; from the copper-nickel ores
of the Sudbury district, Ontario,
part of which is exported in the
form of copper-nickel matte, the
remainder being treated by the
Ontario Refining Company Ltd.,
Copper Cliff, Ontario; in blister
copper at the Noranda smelter
which is refined by the Canadian
Copper Refiners, Montreal East;
and from concentrates at Eustis,
P. Q., which are exported. Average monthly prices for copper increased from 5.70877 cents per
pound (English prices converted to
Canadian funds) in January to a
high of 9.1508 cents in July, receding to an average of 7.505 cents
from the first two weeks of December, the average for the year being
7.437 cents as against 6.3802 cents
in 1932.
Silver production totalled 15,360-
764 fine ounces valued at $5,774,000
as against 18,347,907 fine onnces
worth $5,811,081 in 1932, a decrease of 16 per cent, in quantity
but only 0.64 per cent, in value.
The principal source of Canada's
silver at the present time is the
Sullivan mine in British Columbia,
where it occurs in association with
lead and zinc. The number of
mines in the old Cobalt district of
Ontario are gradually narrowing
down. The Treadwell Yukon
Company's mine in the Mayo district of the Yukon contributed some
2,200,000 fine ounces. The price
of silver showed considerable improvement during the past year.
In January the New York price
converted to Canadian funds was
29.0449 cents per fine ounce. This
rose to an average of 39;8295 cents i
Howe Sound Mining  Company Increase Dividends
Directors of the Howe Sound
Mining Co., which controls the

Howe Sound, declared a dividend
for the .quarter of 75c. payable
December 30, to shareholders of
record December 29th. The last
quarterly dividend was 25c.
After the meeting the directors
issued the following statement:
"Earnings for the quarter with
December estimated are satisfactory
due in part to favorable exchange
rates, and to a lesser degree in in
ventory sales. In view of the
above, the directors, feeling that
the utmost consideration should be
given stockholders at this time,
have declared a dividend of 75c.
It is the intention of the board hereafter to make all dividends, when
declared, payable at the end of each
Federal Government Studies
Public Works Program
While the cabinet is engrossed
in a review of its financial problems
for the coming year it is learned
that consideration is being given
to a programme of public works
as a relief measure in Canada.
Such works would be limited to
those which can bo financed without increasing the gold anchorage.
The Roosevelt policy of substituting public works for direct relief
is regarded as encouraging to the
similar plan, under consideration
and which was officially indicated
iu a radio address by the Prime
Minister in November.
Employment In Canada Still
Shows Increase
For the eighth consecutive month,
employment in Canada has shown
an increase in comparison with the
previous month, according to an
announcement made by Hon. H. H.
Stevens, minister of trade and commerce. The number employed in
the Dominion on December 1 this
year, Mr. Stevens announced, was
850,486 as against 845,793 on
November 1, or an increase of
in August, and rose to an average
of 42.9473 cents during the first
two weeks of December.
Lead production at 269,040,791
pounds increased 5 per cent, and
the total value at $6,450,000 increased 19 per cent, over 1932.
Zinc output of 199,591,600
pounds and valued at $6,412,000
increased 16 per cent, in quantity
and 55 per cent, in value over 1932.
The Provincial fishing production
was valued at approximately $12,-
000,000 last year as compared with
$11,500,000 in the previous year.

Great Railroad Has Fine Police Force
White gloves, part of their official dress, are
especially appropriate to members of the
Canadian Pacific Railway Police, not only for the
■mart touch thus added to their blue uniform, but
because they are emblematic of the force itself; an
organization of spotless reputation and unfailing
courtesy. Not only is this picked body of men,
uniformed and ununiformed, the safeguard of the
property of the world's greatest transportation
system and its thousands of patrons, but its members
are friends and mentors to countless travellers in all
part of the Dominion. Wherever the company has
an interest, be it a great terminal, a wharf or a vast
freight yard, "the man in blue" is to be found.
Many of the constables and their officers are ex-
servicemen and at their head is Brigadier-General
E. de B. Panet, C.M.G., D.S.O., A.D.C., a distinguished Canadian soldier with a splendid record
as a staff officer during the Great War. The force has
won many trophies for first-aid work and also in
revolver snooting, its Ontario team having captured
the Canadian police revolver championship for the

1—Falls about 5 mllea from Hope
J—On the trail
The little village of Hope, situated on the Fraser Biver
about one hundred miles from the coast, is the
starting point for all mountaineers wishing to reach the
interior of British Columbia by the trail route. It is a
scattered village of about two hundred inhabitants but
possessing both an abundance of natural beauty and
a truly romantic past. The village is flanked on one side
by the noble Fraser river, while from the other side one
looks up three wide draws in the mountain ranges.
The one to the left is the beautiful Coquihalla valley
through which the turbulent Coquihalla river cascades
from a pass unmatched for rugged grandeur. Through
this pass too. under innumerable snow sbeds and
tunnels the Kettle Valley Bailway goes to Princeton
and the Interior. In the centre is an opening for the
Nicolum river, to the right is the Silver Creek draw
and beyond it the snow-capped peaks of the Cascade
The mountain trail over the Hope Pass is the old one
known as the Dewdney which was surveyed and partly
built for twenty-five miles out of Hope, by English
Sappers in 1861. It winds up the Coquihalla Biver for
a snort distance, then branches off with the Nicolum. a
tributary of the former river. The way lies through
Sylvan glades, past rushing waterfalls and over rustic
bridges, the old dry "cribbing" of which is as firm as the
day when it was laid.
The flrst feeding ground for horses is at 12 Mile Lake
—otherwise known as Divide Lake at an altitude of
2800 feet. This lake is the head waters of the Nicolum
river. Here there is a beautiful hay meadow owned by a
trapper and prospector who is patiently awaiting the
day when the transprovincial road will give him a means
of transporting his wealth, in the shape of hay, to outside
At 22 Mile there is another beautiful camping spot.
Here there is a large cabin situated in the forest's heart
on the very banks of the Skagit river. The owner of it
carries on prospecting and mining operations in the
vicinity. He appropriately calls hto cabin "Defiance
Camp'1 and his mine "The Silver Daisy."
From here on for many miles the scenery becomes
more wonderful, if that were possible, but at the same
time more wild and rugged. The Pass, a narrow hallway
bounded by cliffs thousands of feet high, Is a sight of
never-ending marvel. At one spot, known as Skagit
Muffs, the trail (a bare 18 inches wide) winds around the
2—The Sumoiii
4—Defiance Camp
shoulder of a cliff which towers above and drops away
a sheer one thousand feet to the bed of the river below.
Then the trail once more drops down to the next
feeding grounds at Cayuse Flats which has a sister spot
three miles farther on—Cedar Flats. Beyond Cedar
Flats lies a long strip of heavy cedar timber, a true
"forest primeval." Strawberry Flats, a pleasant open
field on the Skagit river at a height of 8700 feet is the last
stopping place before the actual ascent to the summit
begins. Here, in spite of the high altitude, wild strawberries grow in abundance.
In the next 2800 feet (of the perpendicular of course!)
one is led to the summit by a series of switchbacks dg-
zagging up the face of the mountain. The river, which at
the foot appeared a torrent, is here a tiny stream,
a mere trickle over the stones. Below, the ever-lasting
hills unroll themselves for a hundred miles of valley ana
When the summit itself is attained a sight never to be
forgotten appears. A wide open meadow lies in tn
inverted crown on the mountain top. Around its edge
rise whitish cliffs scarcely distinguishable from the many
snow banks. And everywhere, even beside the snow,
grows a bewildering variety of wild flowers.
In the centre of the depression lie two lakes, the
dividing of the waters, for from the one goes the Skagit
river towards the sea and from the other flows the Whip
Saw Creek towards the interior lakes.
As soon as the descent of the eastern slope is begun
a great change is noticeable. The grade is easy and
steady, the country becomes more open and is clear of
the under-brush and terns so characteristic of the western
The last camp is twenty miles from Princeton but the
last nine miles of that distance are covered by a good
motor road, the beginning of the proposed Trans-
provincial-highway from Princeton to Hope.
About eight miles from Princeton is a wonderfully
interesting spot where stratified rocks yielding excellent
fossils remains are located on the side of the hill.
Shortly after this the valley opens out before one-
Princeton snuggled peacefully into a friendly circle of hills
and its two rivers, the Slmllkameen and Tulameen
keeping guard over It. Beyond it, rises a splendid vista
of rolling green foothills with more rugged mountains
closer in, indicative of the districts most flourishing
industries, ranching and mining.

by and for the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company in 1930, in Canada,
Including hotels and bungalow - camps; sleeping
and dining car service,
(which also operates station restaurants), and
the British Columbia
Coast boat service. If
one stopped to sit down
and figure out the gallons of water and bars
of soap required for these
operations, the results
might be even more astounding.
The hotel, department
owns 789,821 pieces of'
linen; the dining and
sleeping car, service
some 1,600,000 and the
British Columbia steamships another, 247,000,

Canadian Gold Mines Paid
Millions Profits In 1933
Thirteen Canadian gold mines
(including Noranda, which in 1933
made most of its profits from gold)
distributed dividends during the
year just closed, totaling $23,164,-
927. This represents an increase
of $3,341,751 over 1932. Of the 13
mines in the dividend list, eight
increased distributions, while there
were no decreases.
Dividends to shareholders represent only a small proportion of the
contributions of the gold mines to
the country's income. The amount
spent in wages, in materials and
supplies and in taxes, (the latter
being very heavy) absorbed the
bulk of the difference between
gross income of close to $90,000,000
and the amount of the dividends.
British Columbia gold production last year amounted to approximately 238,000 ounces, valued at
§0,500,000 in Canadian funds, it is
