Mining  Properties   In
District Reported On
By Dr. Mandy
The Preliminary Report of Department of Mines recently published
contains a report by Dr.J.T.Mandy.
resident mining engineer for the
North Western District, the portion
relative to the Alice Arm and Anyox district is published below:
Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power Company. During 1931 -continuous operations
have been carried on and a larger
production made than in 1930. The
Granby Company curtailed by
shutting down its Copper Mountain mine, permitting Hidden Creek
to run at a higher rate than before.
To cope with the increasingly depressed copper prices, economics
have been worked out and applied
to every phase of the operation, resulting in the per pound cost of
copper being r steadily lowered
throughout the year. In the Hidden Creek mine exploration and dev-
I elopment have been energetically
| continued,and some lateral extensions of the known replacement ore-
bodies have been picked up. Diamond drilling from the lower and
minus 885 levels for depth continuity of the known ore-carrying
structure along the greenstone-
argellite contact has been continued.
Prospecting operations were carried out by W. Hanna on the Dead-
wood and Quartz; on the Black
Bear by S. W. Barclay and on the
Sunrise group by Thos. McRostie,
with results generally satisfactory
in exposing further copper mineralization.
Esperanza Mines, Ltd. Some
financing was arranged for the
carrying out of further work on
this property. For this purpose a
36/42 horse-power semi diesel Pett-
er engine belt connected with a 2x
120 Gardner Denver compressor
was installed and suitably housed
near the portal No. 9 tiinnel and
some work carried out until November 15th. Contrary to some

Copper   Was a Little
Firmer During Week
New York—The copper market
was strong this week with domes
tic metal moving in fair volume at
7j to 7| oents a pound delivered.
Custom smelters offered the metal
at the lower figure, but primary
producers refused commitments
below the 7| mark, which represented an advance of }i cent a
pound. Export copper buying
was active at 1\ cents a pound
c.i.f. London, Hamburg and Havre.
Total output of primary and
secondary copper by American re
fineries in 1931, amounted to
1,639.000,000 pounds, compared
with 2,436,500,000 in 1930, or a
reduction of 33 per cent., according
to the bureau of mines.
Enjoyable Card Party Held
At Alice Arm
Another very enjoyable card
party, of a series being held this
winter, by the Alice Arm Athletic
Association, was held in the Club
House on Saturday evening.
Bridge was played at all tables.
The ladies' first prize was won by
Miss Alice Kergin, and Mr. Jens
Larsen, who was playing as a lady,
secured the consolation.   v
Mr. J. Krug was the winner of
the-men's first prize, aud Mr. Gus.
Pearson successfully captured the
Refreshments brought a pleasant"
evening to a close.
Granby Ore Used In Unique
A fireplace constructed entirely
of mineral specimens from famous
mines in different parts of the world
has been built in the home of Mr.
andMrs. L. A. Lobdell, of Durant,
Wisconsin. A picture of this unique possession has been received at
the Chamber of Mines, Vancouver,
who contributed a sample of copper
ore from the Granby Company's
mine at Anyox to the assortment of
ores utilized in its construction.
Indoor Sports Pick Up After
Christmas Adjournment
Both badminton and basketball
are away to a good start for the
second half of the season. '
Badminton players are getting
in form foi the next tournament,
and basketball has its special
nights set aside for practice.
The cold weather also stimulated
the desire for indoor sports.
Keeping the Wolf From
The Door is Double
"Keeping the Wolf from the
door" is a problem that is being
solved in more ways than one by
some of the people of Alice Arm
this winter. A band of timber
wolves, thought to number over a
dozen at least, have made the Kitsault flats and adjacent territory
tlieir headquarters this winter, and
their prolonged howls have rever
berated throughout the still winter
nights, and also frequently during
the day. Residents on the hillside
have b.een paid visits, one bold intruder venturing onto the porch of
H. P. Kergin's residence, while
another paid a call close to J.
Strombeck's door.
They have been frequently seen,
but so far not one has been shot.
Gus. Pearson reoently ran into a
pack of eight a short distance up
the Kitsault Valley, but as he was
only carrying a 22 calibre rifle,
failed to drop ciy;. Others have
also sighted single wolves, but so
far their speed and quickness have
saved them.
Although their howls have ceas
ed during the past week, tracks iu
the snow show that they are still
in the district.
Oddfellows to Celebrate The
Anniversary of Founder
"Widdey Night," which is a special anniversary of the Oddfellows
iu commemoration of the founder
of the lodge, will be held in Anyox
on Monday the 18th., by the mem
bers of the Askew Lodge, I. O. O. F
The celebration wil) take the
form of a banquet and dance, and
the sisters of the Order the Reb
eccas will be present, so that the
affair promises to be one of real
sociability and enjoyment.

Anglican Church.Holds Card
Party and Social
A very enjoyable card party and
social evening was held at the Anglican Church Parish Hall on Fri
day, January 8th. About forty
people were present, and whist was
the popular game indulged in. For
tlie ladies, Mrs. Doelle captured rajis
first prize, with Mrs."J. Dunn at
the other end of the list, securing
the' consolation prize. Alex.
Wright was the top scorer for the
men, with Mr. J. Warden qualify

had been served the remainder of
the evening was spent in music
and singing.
Former Anyox Resident Was

Mr. Elmer Lloyd Perrin, formerly cashier at the Granby Stores
and now resident in Vancouver,
was married on December 27th. to
Harriet Anne McRae, second
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John
McRae, of Vancouver. The wedding took place in Blaine, Washing
Large Number of Fans
Attend Basketball
On Friday the8th., three games
of basketball were played, ai d
drew a large crowd of fans. In
the boys' game (Intermediate set-
ies) the All-Star Scouts engaged
tha Wildcats and tamed them down
to the extent of 14 to 10. The All
Stars shone throughout the game,
two or three of them, be it noted,
proving to be real "shooting ''meteors.
In the ladies' game the Spooks
had evidently lost none of their ah
ility through the Christmas festivities, as they overcame the High
School by a total of 18 to 10. The
Students, however, have lost none
of their determination and dash,
and there are whispers that the
Spooks will probably be laid low
n the next encounter.
In the Men's Senior Game the
Vandals did not make quite as good
a showing against the Celts, the
latter, winning by 32 to 12. For
the Celts baskets were scored hy
McDonald 6, Steele 4, Mikeli 2,
Patrick 1, Dwyer 1, while the
Vandals scores were Calderoni 2
Davis 1, F. Anderson 1, Lindgren
1 and Lazorek 1.
On Monday the 11th. the store
team tried conclusions with the
Celts, but came on the thin end of
a 26 to 9 score. However, the
Store team, as seems to be the
case regularly, were unable to connect as much as they deserved on
the actual play. S. Steele was the
star scorer for the Celts, netting no
less than eight baskets, all in tin;
first half. In the second half luck
deserted him altogether. Other
scores were: McDonald 2, Dwyer 2,
Mikeli 1. The Store delivered their
baskets thus: Bass, Gillies, Pinckney, and Watson one each.
R. Lighterman arrived on  Monday from Vancouver.
All Metals Showed Price Decline Last Year

Mines, states that: Silver and base metal prices reaohed record lows
during the year 1931, and the averages show substantial declines from
those of 1930. The following table shows the average metal prices for
1931, and the percentage declines in the averages for the year.

this property lie solely as a possible
small-tonnage, mainly silver-producing, proposition, dependent on
careful, systematic, and economical
operation, and a sufficient silver
price. As was stressed in the 1929
Annual Report, this indicated limited possibility has yet to be definitely determined. Before embarking
on haphazard exploration systematic surveying and sampling of the
property should be done and a care •
fill plan laid out.
On the Wildcat, the owner A.
Davidson of Alioe Ann, has ener
getically continued exploration by
stripping and tunnelling, and is
continuing tunnelling during the
winter. On the Combine, the owner
Miles Donald, of Alice Ann, has
discovered another vein showing
encouraging mineralization. The
old tunnel has now been cleaned
exposing the vein with a width of
about 10 feet carrying good copper;
lead and silver values, with about
$1.20 in gold to the ton. This
property is recommended to examining engineers. :-
On the Vanguard, further work
was carried ont consisting of ten
feet of cross-cutting in the zone
from the end of the north drift of
No. 2 tunnel (lower tunnel) , which
is reported to average about 1.5 per
cent, copper. The south crosscut in
the zone has also been extended
about 9 feet beyond the 4 feet prev
iously reported, and is estimated by
the owner to carry about 1.5 per
cent copper.
On the Lucky Strike group, John
Hauber of Alice Arm, ha9 made a
new discovery of antimony ore in a
vein 3 inches to 2 feet wide, carry
ing good gold values. Further exploration was also carried out on
other veins on the property. On
the Moose group, north-west of the
tunnel, John Strombeek of Alice Arm
has uncovered additional promising
showings carrying silver, lead, and
copper mineralization with interesting gold values and is continuing
exploration during the winter. On
the Highland, Tyee, and, Last
Chance groups, exploration was
continued by Archie McPhail, and
the trail extended towards the summit. On the Tyee, a tunnel was
started 200 feet below the long cut.
Unfortunately, this was in broken
ground and it caved. Continuity of
the ore-zone with encouraging mineralization, was also extended by
opencuts above and below the long
cut described in the 1930 Report.
These groups are recommended to
examining engineers.
ln the Silver Basin area on East
Creek, towards the Kinskuch Lake
section, G. Pearson and associates
have been prospecting some encouraging copper showings. To facilitate the prospecting of this section
the trail was extended by the Department of Mines.
Copper Imports By The
Leading Countries
New York. —Imports of copper
by the United States in November
again led the world in volume, while
Great Britain retained her position
as the heaviest importer of lead in
the same period, according to figures-just issued by the American bureau of metal statistics.
Copper imports into this country
in unmanufactured form in November were 20,386 metric tons, as
compared with 21,454 in October
and 19,080 in September. Great
Britain's imports were 8629 tons in
November, 10,071 in October and
10,062'tons in September. Germany imported 11,.S21 tons of copper
in October as compared with 13,499
in September and Sweden took 2949
and 1944 respectively in the two
Average monthly net imports by
leading countries were: Great Britain, 10,552 tons for eleven months
with November 30, compared with
an average of 11,197 tons a month
in 1930; France, 10,717 tons a
month for ten months, compared
with 10,642 tons for the full year.
Germany's average for ten months
was 9005, compared with a monthly
average for the full preceding year
of 10,555 tons.
The average monthly exports of
copper from Chile in the ten months
ended with October 31 last were 17
575 as compared with an average
of 15,995 tons in the full year 1930.

first—was operated steadily
throughout last year, but on a curtailed basis. The copper production will amount to approximately
30,600,000 lb. The mill was oper
ated to capacity of well over 6,000
tons a day when running, bu t was
closed down one or two days a

Colors that run rampant in the four
corners of the world provide the
contrasts that make a lasting impression on the memory of the world
traveller. Districts wholly different
in their colorful ensemble are but a
few miles apart and the keynote of
theirstriking contrasts is color. Today
we hear much about color psychology,
its effect on the senses of people and
of animals; and how it affects temperament and even health.
Colors of the scattered ports of the
world that burst from quaint bazaars
and the costumes of the inhabitants
on the streets, vie with those of
nature. The landscapes and seas
differ; colors in architecture, and the
colors of princes, peasant and paupers,
gladden the eye and make the blood
run riot in unison.
From New York on December 2 the
Canadian Pacific steamship Empress
of Australia, will commence another
cruise to the contrasting ports of the
world. This vessel will make an
entire circuit of the globe anchoring in
56 ports and visiting 21 different
countries, covering during the four-
months cruise approximately 28,400
Funchal the Capital of Madeira,
and the first port of call is radiant
with gaily colored houses and gardens;
Costumes here are likewise brilliant.
Naples with the wonderful blue of Its
sea and sky, with Mount Vesuvius
at one side and the Islands of Capri,
Ischia and Procida in the distance,
affords a vision of loveliness.
Japan in cherry blossom time is a
fairyland of color and sunshine, and
Fujiyama towers above the masses of
bloom, its white summit contrasted
against the blue sky. New Year's eve
ln  Cairo is  most festive and here
colors run riot. The bazaars, the
palaces and bright hued mosques
with their numerous minarets and
domes are color schemes of rare
beauty. Each of the countries offers
an ever-changing vista of color and
strike vividly into the memory,
causing the traveller to become interested, consciously or not, in color
One of the features of the world
cruise of the Empress of Australia, is
the way detail worries have been
taken out of the hands of the members
of the cruise party. From start to
finish the ship is their home. Worries
in connection with foreign money,
customs regulations and language are
a thing unknown to the passengers,
as these details have been worked out
months ahead and handled entirely
hy the cruise managers on board.
It is too much to expect one to
forget an enemy. But a wise man
will compromise by forgetting him.
