In   his   letter   to   the   shareholders.
President Nichols stales that:  "These

nection   with  coal  and  cuke  developments of the company, have had a bad
effeel   upon  profits.   Il   is  pointed  out,
however, that these are but temporarj
conditions;  thai  the company Is now

um   Service also subject  of protest.
On account of the fortnightly mail
service, and the general bad service
given by the postal authorities to this
district, a proiesi meeting of the
Stewart Citizens' Association was held
on Thursday. Resolutions were passed protesting against not only th*1
deplorable mail service, but against
the Grand Trunk Pacific for withdrawing the weekly boat service. Various
speakers pointed out the disadvantages thus forced upon the district, drawing attention to the fact that the present boat service, and the fortnightly
mail service, are retarding development of mining which Is just at the
point where ihe proper encouragement will mean the extraction of sil-
ver at a time when the world is liter
ally crying out tor the white metal.
Among the speakers at the meeting
were Chas. P. Caldwell, president of
the New Alaska Mining Co.. .Mr.
Buchan, Pat Daly, Frank Mobley,
M.1..A. A motion that the government be asked to Immediately resorc
the weekly bout service was moved
by Itoy Moseley and .seconded by William Tooth, carrying unanimously

Chas. !���'. Caldwell, president of the
company, arrived on the Prince lohn

faction with the showing that is being
made.   The New Alaska has a splendid

I amounted in $ 1,312.536.7j, and net sur-
plus on June 30, 1919, was $1,124,-
409.36, comparing rather unfavorably
with a net surplus of a $3,421,355.04
surplus a year earlier, and although
provision   lias   been   made   under   the
I head of "accrued charges'" for a liability of $464,778.53 in respect to Dominion wai', income and other taxes, and
British Columbia taxes, if is stated bj
ihe auditors that such provision is
inadequate, and that it is possible the
surplus may he trimmed to the extent
of $700,1100 mi' taxation purposes,
Large   Tonnage   Handled.
Total    tonnage    handled,   including

Smelting Costs.
Smelting cosis at the Anyox plant
averaged $3,256 per ton, being divided
as follows: Labor, .865; supplies, .17s;
power, ,276; coke, 1,264; limestone,
1.175; quartz, ,19s. Average wag>- uf
smeller employees was $5.2(1 per man
as    against  $4.94    the year    previous.
! "The labor conditions during the last
i
. year were the worst that we have ex
perienced," the report states, "the efficiency of the men wns lower than
for any previous period. Men. especially good men, were hard to persuade
lo come north, and the good men who
did come were hard to handle when al
work, and quit at the slightest proco
cation, ami we had to keep them whom
we knew  were absolutely  worthless
