Dr. J. T. Mandy Gives Series
of Instructive Lectures
Dr. J. T Mandy, resident Mining
Engineer for the North-western
district, gave a series of very interesting and instructive addresses at
Alice Arm this week. They were
held on Monday and Tuesday at 3
and 8 p.m. All the lectures were
well attended by prospectors and
others interested in mining. Dr.
Mandy explained his points very
fully and his audiences gained con
• siderable knowledge not otherwise
obtainable.
The fact that Dr. Mandy has ex
amined every mining property of
merit in this district, made his
addresses much more interesting,
as he was able to explain the geology and ore occurrences to his
audience, and also intelligently
reply to any question that was ask
ed.
At the commencement of the
lecture on Monday afternoon, Dr,
Mandy was introduced by Mr
Morris Petersen, President of the
Alice   Arm   branch of the  B.  C
I Chamber of Mines,  who acted as
chairman.
In his opening remarks Dr. Man>
I dy stressed the importance of the'
I local Chamber of Mines to the
prosperity of the district, and
thanked the Alice Arm branch for
making such splendid arrangements
for the lectures.
He touched on the importance of
the mining industry to the world's
civilization, the cultural, industrial
and economic integrity of nations
and communities. He also mentioned the present trade depression
and its sad effect on the silver and
base metal camps, such as Alice
Arm. He, however, had not lost
faith and stated that when the depression had passed, which was
certain, Alice Arm was bound to
become a very busy camp, on
account of the promising mineral
probabilities.
Dr. Mandy then explained the
association of ore deposits, which
are natural concentrations of valuable minerals in association with
rocks of the earth's crust. He also
explained the rocks composed of
minerals, which all had a bearing
on our ore deposits, which occur
in them. These, the rock forming
minerals were described, and their
characteristics, chemical and physical were described with a particular
reference to their association with
certain ores.
An interesting part of the lecture
was that describing how tests of
ore could easily be carried out in
the field by the prospector in order
to identify the minerals composing
the rocks. Special stress was laid
on the rocks containing iron-mag-
nesian minerals, which in their
association with late injections of
granite rocks, particularly those of
the more acid or silicious, were
likely areas for the occurrence of
gold ores. The lecture was illustrated with numerous mineral specimens.
On Monday evening, Dr. Mandy
commenced at the very beginning
of things in regard to mineral deposits. He took his audience back
to the time when the earth was
composed of gases and vapors,
revolving at an enormous speed.
The heavier parts gravitating to
the centre of the earth and the
lighter on the outside, which forms
the crust. Fifty-seven million years
ago the earth revolved four times
faster than at the present time, and
a day was only 6)£ hours in length.
The moon was also much closer,
being about 3-7,000 miles distant, while today it is 239,000 miles
away.
In order to more clearly illustrate
his points he drew a diagram of the
earth showing the extent of the
molten inner core, the hot inner
ring, and the comparatively cool
crust. He also showed the distance of the planets from the earth,
and explained the vastness of the
solar system. Dr. Mandy also
touched upon the limitlessness of
the universe. Make your minds
infinitely elastic, he said, when considering the size of the universe.
It is without beginning and without end, and the earth is a mere
pin prick in comparison.
In explaining the formation of
our present day ore bodies, Dr.
Mandy said that as the earth gradually cooled and revolved at a less
speed, stresses resulted, causing
outflows of ore bodies beneath
when released from pressure. Contraction and folding of the earth,
weathering of igneous rocks, oxidation, heat and cold, action of
water, etc. all assisted in breaking
up the surface of the earth. These
actions resulted in transferring one
part of the earth to another part.
This caused decreased pressure in

Elks' Fifth Annual Ball
Largely Attended and
Brilliant Affair
The fifth annual ball of Anyox
Lodge No. 47, B. P. O. E., was
held in the Lodge Room on Monday, March 28th, and proved a
brilliant success. A large number
of Brother Bills, with their invited
friends, were present, and the hall
throughout the evening was a scene
of animation and jollity. The decorations were the product of a
master mind and many deft and
willing hands, the colors of purple
and white being used in a most
artistic and effective manner.
The grand march took place just
prior to supper, being led by the
officers of the Lodge, and everyone
present taking part. The banquet
room specially decorated in the Elks
colors, presented a scene of merriment and gaiety. In their usual
thorough manner, the Brother Bills
had provided an elaborate and most
appetising banquet for, their guests,
and everyone did&ill justice to the
vivands in return.
On the resumption of dancing,
and in response to several requests,
a set of quadrilles was gone through
after which the modern dances held
sway until 2 a.m. Enjoyable
music was furnished by Harry
Ward's Orchestra, who were unstinting with their musical numbers
and generous with the encores.
At the commencement of the ball
the Exalted Ruler, M. J. Sheen,
welcomed the visitors on behalf of
the Lodge and wished for everyone
a most enjoyable time. Harry
Hallcrow was the efficient Master
of Ceremonies.
Mine Branch A. C. L.
Hold Party and Dance
The first venture in the way of
entertainment by the new Council
of the Mine Branch of the A. C. L.
took the form of a Card Party and
Dance, which was held on Thursday the 24th. A large number of
people attended, and the affair was
in every way a success.
Devotees of bridge as well as of
whist were catered to, the ladies'
first prize in the former going to
Mrs. Donaldson, with Mrs. N.
Olsen securing the booby. Mr. E.
Moore was top-notcher among the
men, while Mr. Donaldson, as
though to balance his wife's ability
was found in a humble attitude in
the basement. The beach residents
are evidently better whist exponents
as Miss Brisbane and Mr. Hallcrow
carried off the honors. The situation in regard to the ladies' booby
prize was that this went to Mrs. J.
Beaudin, while Mr. Albert Powell,
late of Copper Mountain, was given
a seat at the foot ofthe class.. A
very enjoyable supper was served,
after which the company took to
dancing, Tom Stretton's Merrymakers' Orchestra supplying most
enjoyable music. It was evident
that this was looked upon as a mere
start of a round of real social events
at the Mine.
Wool, Socks and Cash Are
Needed by I. 0. D. E.
The committee in charge of the
knitting and distribution of socks
for needy unemployed wish to thank
all those who have so far assisted
in this work. There is a real need
for socks, and further donations of
wool, socks, or cash are earnestly
solicited. Mrs. Deane, at the
Anyox Library, will be pleased to
receive anything donated or to give
any information required.
The regular monthly meeting of
the local chapter of the I. O. D. E.
will be held in the Legion Club
Room on Monday, April 4th., at 8
p.m., when a musical program will
be presented. Annual fees are payable at this meeting, and all member are urged to be present.
Easter  Church   Service At
Alice Arm Enjoyed
A large congregation was pres.
ent at the Easter Sunday service
held in the Anglican Church on
Sunday evening last. The service
was conducted by Rev. W. B. Jennings and was greatly appreciated.
Following the service a number
of lantern slide pictures were shown
by Rev. Jennings, depicting
scenes in the district covered by the
mission launch Northern Cross.
These slides will be sent east in
order to convey to the people there
an idea of the territory and people
ministered to by Rev. Jennings.
The two brass vases donated to
the Church by the Woman's Auxiliary were used for the first time on
Sunday, and, filled with spring flowers, their presence greatly enhanced
the beauty of the altar.
Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Duffy arrived
on Wednesday from Peru, South
America, on a visit to the home of
Mr. Gordon. Mr. and Mrs. Duffy
spent a few days in New York en
route to the coast.
Augmented  Choir   Of
United Church Present
Sacred Cantata
On Good Friday evening the choir
of the United Church, augmented
by voices from Christ Church, gave
a beautiful rendition of Maunder's
"Olivet to Calvary," an Easter
Cantata. The choir and soloists
had caught the spirit of the Easter
message as portrayed in the Cantata, and they put all their best
efforts into the conveying of this
message to those who gathered to
hear it.
The first part was taken up with
the incidents of the later days of the
life of Christ—His triumphal entry
into Jerusalem, the driving out
from the temple of who sold merchandise, tbe Last Supper with His
disciples, the agony in the Garden
of Gethsemane, His betrayal by
Judas, and His arrest by Roman
soldiers.
The second part opened with the
March to Calvary, and the yelling
of   the   mob   to "Crucify  Him."
The chorus work was impressive,
the voices blending splendidly,
shading and precision being nicely
marked. The soprano solos were
sweetly given by Mrs. J. Peel, and
the quartette: "O Thou whose
Sweet Compassion" was carefully
rendered by Mrs. J. Peel, Mrs. J.
McMillan, Mr. S. Peel and Mr. A.
E. Field. The baritone solos were
beautifully given by Mr. W. F. Eve,
while Norman Redman was at his
best in the tenor numbers. Mr. F.
Dresser, the organist, presided at
the organ and played with much
feeling throughout. The choir was
under the direction of Norman R.
Redman, leader of the United
Church Choir.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
Whether are we drifting? Are
things going to get worse or better?
Will business improve again to
such an extent that all our workers
will be gainfully employed? Have
we become so smart with our
labor saving machinery that a
large number of the workers of the
world will never find it possible to
obtain employment? In other words
what does the future hold?.
These questions are assuming increased importance as the present
depression continues to drag along,
with no betterment and no signs of
a revival of trade in sight. The
world is weary of the puny efforts
of the leaders of the world':
nations to improve conditions. No
concerted action has yet been
taken. Each nation continues to
try and solve its own problems
independent of the rest of the
world, and gets nowhere. It is
similar to a man lost in the woods,
when he starts to wander in
circles.
The concentration of the wealth
of the world into a comparatively
few hands, is being bitterly resented by the masses at the present
time. This was vividly portrayed
last week at Washington, United
States, when a majority of members of the two big political parties
united, and smashed the income
tax bill that was before Congress.
They objected to the bill on the
ground that it was an added burden on the shoulders of the masses
who could ill afford to pay. Instead, they passed legislation to
impose additional taxes on the
wealthy, who, they said can well
afford it. There is an old adage
which says: "Hold a straw up
when you wish to know which
way the wind is blowing." Thisl
act of Congress is a straw which
showed which way the wind of
public opinion is blowing.
About two or three years ago,
some publicity-seeking person conceived the wild idea that a new
province, embracing the northern
parts of Alberta and British Columbia was necessary for our
prosperity. Since that time, other
persons have, at various times
supported the scheme. Fortunately, these gentlemen have never
been taken seriously. As far as
we can see, the formation of a
new province would be a joke.
Imagine the sparse population of
Northern Alberta and British
Columbia struggling to support a
government, with all the frills that
governments today call necessities.
Instead of trying to form a new
province, those interested should
Work towards the consolidation of
all the provinces, into one, thus
cutting down our overhead expenses and lightening our taxes.
United States May Tax
Canadian Copper
An Editorial in the Financial
News
With the United States tentatively planning an import tax of 4
cents a pound on copper, legislation to that effect having been
started on the way through the
House at Washington, there will
he more incentive than ever for
Canada and South Africa to cooperate with Great Britain for a
direct sale of the red metal to
British markets.
At present, for no other reason
than that the machinery for refin
ing and rolling is in the United
States, Canada ships most of her
raw copper to that country. At
the same time, Great Britain buys
copper heavily in the United
States market.
On the face of it, there is a natural opening for trade in copper
between Canada and Great Britain
and the snbjecc should come up for
some consideration at Ottawa in
July when the Imperial Conference
gets under way. The proposed
4 oont tax on Canadian copper
will increase the urgency for
action.
In British Columbia and, latterly
in Ontario and Manitoba, large
low-cost operations have been developed. Some of these can avoid
loss even at existing abnormally
low prices of copper. The same is
true of British Africa.
Behind the United States bill
for an import tax are the high cost
producers of copper in that
country. With copper at existing
levels they see no hope of making
money for two or three years,
until stocks of reHned metal are
greatly diminished. Curtailment
of production, the producers' way
out from over production, offers no
attraction   to these operators   of

Huge Blast Breaks One
Million Tons Ore
Four carloads of dynamite, about
152 tons, was set off in Flin Flon
Northern Manitoba mining town,
last week, and according to statements by company officials, enough
copper and gold ore was broken up
by the blast to provide rock for the
Flin Flon mine until the latter
part of this summer.
The discharge is believed to be
the third largest ever let off in any
part of Canada, and one of the big
explosions of all times. No damage
was done to any of the business
establishments or homes in Flin
by the explosion, but it was dist
inetly felt.
The $80,000 worth of explosion
was set off in the open pit, which
is down hundreds of feet. About
1,000,000 tons of ore were moved
by the blast.

MINING IN BRITISH
COLUMBIA
In 1930, among the Canadian   Provinces,
British Columbia was the leading producer
of Silver, Lead and Zinc.
In this Province, 45 per cent, of Canada's
silver, 97 per cent, of the lead, and 93 per
cent of the zinc were produced.
British Columbia has produced over $1,260,-
000,000 worth of mineral products.
About 200,000 square miles of unexplored
mineral bearing lands are open for prospecting.
Practically every mineral known to
be found on the Continent occurs
to some extent in British Columbia

Bungalow Camping in Rockies
Cpring is here, according to the calendar, though
"■ you may not otherwise have noticed it, and with
the spring the thought of vacation begins to gather
strength. In another month or six weeks the bungalow camps of the Rockies, famous the world over
for their beauty, will have opened again for the
season Outstanding among them are the Lake
O'Hara Bungalow camp (lower left), just behind
Lake Louise; Yoho camp (lower right), under the
roar of the Tokakkaw Falls; and Emerald Lake
chalet (upper), by many considered to be the gem
of the Rockies, although artists and others will often
contend that Lake O'Hara is a close rival. Stays at
reasonable cost may be made in any or all three of
these camps, since they are not very far from one
another and are easily accessible. As a by no means
minor part of the lure of these camps there is the
attraction of trail riding on trained, sure-footed
mountain cayuses over mountain passes through
some of the most magnificent scenery in the world.
Centre inset are the famous Twia Falls near tha
Yoho Camp.

In appreciation of retaining the trophy in Canada and for the splendid showing made by the
individual players of the team, the Gillette Safety Razor Company of Canada, Limited, presentee! each
member of the team with a beautiful Razor and complete shaving outfit. Each set was imprinted with
the individual's name in gold leaf lettering. 4
The presentation was made by Mr. J. S. Lavene, Managing Director of the Company who said
"I do not know of a better way to show our appreciation of the very fine performance of the Canadiens
team this season — it is indeed a privilege and a pleasure to do our bit by presenting to each player

Mining Addresses

certain parts and inner masses of
molten rock, called magmas, carrying metals which form the ore
bodies, forced themselves to the
surface.
In explaining the coast Batholith,
which constitutes the mineral bearing rock of this district, the speaker
said that it came from the lower
depths of the earth, forcing its way
towards the surface. The bulk
has been exposed by erosion, except
when covered by sedimentary rock.
The age of the coast batholith is
computed to be 150,000,000 years,
and is of the Jurassic, Cretacious
and possibly extended into lower
Tertiary periods.
Dr. Mandy explained the age of
the various rocks of the world, and
stated that the Pre-cambrian,
which stretches across northern
Canada, from Alberta to Quebec
was the oldest.
At the conclusion of the meeting
a question was asked regarding the
ore structures of the Hidden Creek
mine at Anyox. This, Dr. Mandy
explained very fully.
In reply to a question regarding
Pre-glacier placer gold gravel, he
gave a very interesting and lengthy
reply in regard to how placer gold
gravels were deposited.

Time to
Relax
and
Refresh
On any occasion when good fellows get together
there comes a pause for relaxation and refreshment. Then that's the time B. C. Bud shares the
honors in making the party a complete  success.
This lager, so perfectly brewed from only the
choicest malt and B. C.-grown hops, has a satisfying strength and a rich full flavor that defies
substitution.
Order it by the carton.   It costs no more for this
convenience.
