Another Strike To Take
Place At Anyox
The forthcoming strike at Anyox

with alarm by every man concerned

Silver Prices and
Alice Arm
Tbe rise of silver prices during
the past two weeks and indications
that prices will go still higher, has
awakened interest in silver mines
throughout the province. Since
1930 many mines have closed
and others have curtailed production. But if silver rises to 50 cents
per ounce or over, there is no doubt
that many mines can be operated
profitably. President Roosevelt's
action in regard to silver indicates
strong probabilities that prices will
rise before many months to at least
50 cents. If this occurs and the
price protected against severe fluctuations, northern British Columbia
silver mines will again become active. When the price of silver
suddenly dropped in 1930 the
Torbrit Mining Company, a subsidiary of the Britannia Mining Co.
were actively engaged in developing the Toric Mine. They also
had an option on the Dolly Varden
and Wolf, and were planning big
operations when the price broke
and operations suspended. That
this company will return when
price conditions warrant, there is
no question, as development work
on the Toric was very satisfactory,
and with the acquisition of the
Dolly Varden and Wolf and adjacent claims to the Toric, they controlled a large portion of the silver
mineralized zone of the upper Kitsault country. That they were
desirous of acquiring other properties is well known. All this meant
large operations. The drop in silver prices caused the Torbrit Company to abandon their plans temporarily, but as soon as silver is
placed among the profit producing
metals, these plans no doubt will
be proceeded with along original
lines. There is considerable money
invested in the Toric and this
money will not be allowed to lie
idle longer than is necessary.
Other companies will no doubt become interested in the silver deposits of the Alice Arm district as
soon as silver prices are satisfactory
and inducements offered them.
The Coming Election
The date of the Provincial
General Election is obscure, but
that it will be held during the next
few months is certain, in many
ridings candidates of all parties
have been nominated, but so far
only one has entered the field for
Atlin, this being T. J. Shenton,
labor candidate. From all signs,
however, the liberal party candidate will shortly be nominated and
then   the   conservative    standard
Banks Have Lost More
Money Than Mines
Dr. W. B. Burnett, Vancouver,
president of Cariboo Gold Quartz
Mining Company, speaking before
the advertising and pales bureau of
the Vancouver board of trade, said:
"What do bankers know about
gold mining?" He quoted figures
to show that more money was lost
in United States banks in the past
three years than in the whole history of mining on the American
He recalled the statement of the
late Cecil Rhodes that less money
had been lost and more had been
made in mining than in any other
business in the world and that;
money invested in mines was safer
and surer of profits than in stocks
or bonds or any other business.
"New gold is the cleanest money
on earth—there is no blood on it,"
he said. 'Tt is honestly wrought
from the depths of Mother Earth.
It is creative wealth that governments will never tax as they do the
dollars taken by one man from another.
Canadian Silver Production
Shows Decline
Canadian silver production in
1932 of 18,356,393 fine ounces
worth $5,813,769 showed a drop of
11 per cent in quantity and 5 per

1931. British Columbia, with a
total of 7,295,723 fine ounces is the
largest silver producing province
and the Sullivan silver-lead-zinc
mine, the principal producer. The
Premier mine is also an important

French River, Home of Wiley "Muskie," Will Soon Echo
Cries of Elated Anglers as They Battle Fresh Water Tiger
"Vow is the time for all good'
1~ fishermen to prepare for
that summer trip" is an appropriate slogan for disciples of Isaac
Walton these balmy spring days.
A successful fishing trip depends
largely upon the careful selection
of location, tackle and even associates, for many a party has been
ruined by the last-minute introduction of a "wet blanket" to an
otherwise congenial collection of
One of the most interesting fishing streams in North America is
French River, Ontario, 215 miles
north of Toronto on the Canadian
Pacific Railway. This lordly river
is celebrated as the habitat of the
fighting muscalunge, one of the
gamest fish known; huge Great
Northern pike, pickerel, an abund
ance of small-mouth and large-
mouth black bass and other finny
prizes. To accommodate sportsmen
and their families, a fine bungalow
camp—a collection of individual
cabins centering ar""-J « main
clubhouse—has be .. erected on a
cliff overlooking the river. Here
the fisherman and his family can
"rough it in comfort," far from
the cares and annoyances of a
work-a-day world.
That big "muskies" are plentiful at French River is proven by
the fact that one recent summer
a monster muskie weighing fj
pounds was taken in the Novth
Channel at the mouth of the
Wolseley River. Also, not long
ago a party of Ohio spokesmen
caught, besides their daily J.mit of
bass,  pike and pickerel, uo less
than seventeen "muskies" ranging
from 10 to 33^ lbs. In 1926 a "muskie" of 35 pounds weight, 50
inches long and 21 inches in girth
was taken in the main channel of
the French, one mile from the
bungalow camp.
The French River Bungalow
Camp will open June 15 and remain open until Sept. ii>.. Jack
Stri.thdee, its genial manager, is
an experienced outdoorsman whose
chief delight is coaching the uninitiated in the art of luring the
fish. French River also has a fine
9-hole golf course so that devotees
of the royal and ancient game who
are also fond of fishing need not
entirely forego the former sport
in favor of the latter.
Rocky Mountains Are Ideal Holiday Land
eauty unrivalled, health-giving altitudes, all the
' comforts that modern ingenuity can devise and
"something to do" all the time await the army of
travellers from all over the world, which annually
invades the glorious Canadian Rockies through the
Banff Springs Hotel and the Chateau Lake Louise.
These stately up-to-date hostelries, which open on
May 16 and June 1, respectively, are not only key-
points to the most beautiful mountain territories In
the world, but are, themselves, located in settings of a
beauty which has to be seen to be truly appreciated.
On the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
which owns and operates them, they are equipped
not only to be "homes from home" to the travelling
public and holiday-seekers in the generally accepted
sense, but to furnish entertainment for their guests in
many and varied ways.' Auto drives, trail-rides, boating,
fishing, swimming, golf, tennis, hiking and mountaineering,
to say nothing of the famous Indian Days and the Highland'
Gathering, are all part of programs which years of experience
have brought to perfection. Experts in all lines are in attendance
to be of service to the hotels' guests and real cowboys, red-coated
"Mounties" and true Stoney Indians lend color to a hundred
varV'ons of uniquely picturesque scenes.  There is never a dull moment at
rrntf or Lake Louise. There is something for every taste and the rounding
r ft of full (lays by dancing in cool and spacious ball-rooms, to smart orchestras, is not the leaist of .the attractions offered.

Was Enjoyable Affair
Just as popular as other functions recently held at the Mine was
the dance held on Thursday April
27th. in the Mine Hall, under the
auspices of the Mine Branch of the
Community League. The committee in charge of these affairs
had done everything possible to
ensure the enjoyment of the patrons
and the pleasant atmosphere prevailing did the rest.
The object of tlie dance, was to
raise funds with which to purchase
uniforms foi the Mine baseball
teams, and a substantial sum was
thus obtained. The Merrymakers'
Orchestra provided splendid music
and a most appetising supper was
provided. The Mine Branch are to
be congratulated on their enterprise and energy in these functions.

which beautiful Joan Crawford

A beautiful girl was being tried
for killing her husband. The jurors
had retired. They knew she was
