HIGH PRODUCTION AT ANGUS
fr=v ���.,-���.=
A Christmas present of a permanent
character is presented by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company
of Canada, to lead ore shippers of this,
in a circular jusi issued,- announcing
abolition of the last zmc penalties.
"Commencing with shipments received on this dale,- no lurther zinc
penalty will be charged on lead ores,"
stated the circular signed by Comptroller T. W. Bingay on behalf of the
company, bearing dale of December
26th.
For many years zmcy character in
a Kootenay oro condemned it, as no
way had been evolved for economical
treatment, and smelter returns were
reduced by deductions made for all'
ziric content o\er a certain percentage,
as the zinc added to the cost of recovering the lead.
After the Consolidated p'erfected its
process and practice for utilizing the
zinc in the Sullivan complex ore, and
expanded to large scale production of
zinc, it initiated a new epoch for
Kootenay mining by offering a market
for Kootentay zmc ores a certain substantial content..
The benefits to the shippers of both
lead and zinc concentrates have been
enlarged from time to lime by reduced
treatment rates, to culminate with the
revision of schedule" "H" just announced which removes from lead ore ��
its last vestige of disability on account
of zinc content.
ARGO TUNNEL EXAMINED
R. R. Hedley, M. E., of Vancouver,

PREMIER S. F. TOLMIE'S
, . NEW YEAR. MESSAGE
"On behalf of the Government: of
British Columbia it is a pleasure for me
to seize this opportunity for the first
time in an official capacity of wishing
to all our people a happy and prosperous New Year. '
"Based on conditions; of the past
year, it should certainly be happy, and
if indications count for anything, it
can hardly fail to be "prosperous.
Whether we look backward or forward,
there is much to be thankful for. When
figures for the year just closing'are
complete, they will show that British
Columbia ^has produced from her basic
industries values excelling all former
records. Forest products, including
lumbering and pulp, will probably exceed the $83,000,000 of 1927.. Agriculture is estimated to show an output
of $79,000,000, or $2,00,000 in excess of
the previous year. Mining for 1928 will
record the largest tonnage ever produced here, with a value of $64,000,000,
or $3,000,000 in .excess of 1927. Our
fisheries/with an estimate of $24,500,-
000, should show again, of a million
over the previous year. As these figures indicate, there has also been a
substantial advance in our industries
and payrolls.
"These increases have in turn been
reflected in record building permits
and bank clearings in Vancouver/ Vic-
.toria^andjitliexceiitres throughout the
province. Added to other causes of
prosperity is the increasing rush of
grain through our Coast ports.
"With our base so well established,
with the pendulum swinging to greater
prosperity, we are surely justified in be-;
lieving that the coming year will mark
still another era in" the growth of our
province, and in that belief I close with
repeating the confident wish that you
may enjoy, one, and all, a happy and
prosperous New Year." ���

Victoria, B.C., December 29, 1928.
increase in 1928, the number employed
by the reporting employers at the commencement of November being about
10 per cent, more than at the same
date of 1927. the gain taking place
mainly, in the mining of the metallic
minerals. Beyond all question, 1928
has been the banner year in the mineral production of Canada,
The forestry industries of Canada
have in recent years made remarkable
progress, largely as a result of the development of the newsprint industry.
In spite of increasing consumption of
our forestry products at home, our experts of wood, wood products and
paper have in the last few years been
second only to our exports of agricultural and vegetable products. Thus, in
the six years between' 1922 and the
fiscal year ended March 31, 1928, our
exports in this group have increased
from $179,925,000 to $284,543,000, and
for the 12 months ended October, 1928,
have shown a further increase to $285,-
752,000, being the highest figure in any
12-month period on record.
One of the most remarkable developments in Canada in recent years has
been that of dur hydro-electric industry; with the accompanying increase of the use of electricity in
transportation, in manufactures and in
the home. As late as the end of 1927,
it was 4,778,000, a gain of over 2,000,-
000 horse power or 77 per cent, in six
years. In 1928 new-plants developing
over half a million additional horse
power, have been installed, and the
production qf electricity is now at the
highest point which it has ever reached.
The gross value of the products of
Canadian manufacturing industries increased from $2,482,000,000 in 1922 to
$3,248,000,000 in 1926, in spite of the
general decline in the values of manufactured goods. In 1927, the total value
of manufacturing production was substantially greater than in 1926, and in
1928, $3,500,000,000 would be a very conservative estimate of the gross value of
the manufacturing, production of Canada.- ���
The new construction in Canada during 1928 has exceeded all previous
records/ In the first 11 months of the
year the contracts awarded, as compiled by the MacLean Building Reports, have aggregated $453,127,400 as
compared with $382,269,600 in the same
period of 1927, the highest previous figure in recent years. The 1928 total is
therefore over $70,000,000 or about
18 V_ per cent, higher than in the figure
for 1927.
The total external trade of Canada
in the 12 months ended, 1928, reached
the enormous aggregate of $2,584,000,-
000, the highest for any 12 month
period in the history of the country.
The gross earnings of the Canadian
Pacific and the Canadian National
railways during the first 11 months of
1928, have . aggregated $444,120,000 as
compared with $393,854,000 in the same
period of last year���an increase of $50,-
266,000 or about 12.8 per cent, which
has riot been due to higher rates, but to
expanding traffic.
CANADA'S BEST YEAR
It was universally agreed that 1927,
the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation,
had been the'most prosperous year in
the history of Canada. Remarkable
as the achievement of 1927 was, it has
been far outstripped by that of 1928,
which has established a new high
record in the prosperity and progress of
the" Dominion, says The Daily News,
Nelson.
Agriculture in Canada has in recent
years been characterized by the increasing areas* of the field crops, these
areas having risen from 53,108,000 acres
in 1925 to 56,172,000 acres in 1927 and
to 59,410,000 acres in 1928, Thus, in
the present year alone.no less than
3,238,000 acres of new land have been
added to the producing area of Canada���an acreage nearly half as large as
the total area,under field crops.in the
great .agricultural province of Manitoba. '��� ['���[zizi-    X y   [y
The mining industry in Canada,
though as yet.in a very early stage of
its "development, is I making remarkable
progress.'and adding a substantial
quota of the national* wealth. In 1927,
though the values; of many minerals
were considerably lower than in previous years, the total value 1'of mineral
products reached a new high level of
$247,000,000. In the first half of the
present year,- the production of metallic
minerals exceeded that of the corresponding 7 period of 1927 by $6,500,000,
the production of all minerals, except
arsenic, silver and platinum being
greater -this year than last, and the
total value bf metals and non-metals
produced from Canadian ores reaching
$105,632,000, as compared with $99,137,-
000 in the first half of 1927. The
employment afforded by the mining
industry as a whole showed a distinct

RALPH CONNOR
Ralph Connor, the* well known
Canadian novelist, collected recently from a half-breed voyageur in
the Canadian Northwest a highly
interesting folksong which will be
. sung'-^t the Vancouver Sea Music
Festival next January by Ulysse
Paquin, of Montreal. This song
is .half French, half. English, the
first part being the story of a habitant Colin while the chorus is an
English 7sea .chanty, "Blow ye
winds * bf morning". This bi-ling-
ual song ,appears to have been popular ."many; years; ago at a time
when white pine Awas exported in
large quantities on the old sailing
ships7 from7 QuebecA which carried
.overseas the logsrafted down the
StA: Lawrence������;���'���'from - the Ottawa
River. The-, word 7'chanty' is considered by some authorities as connected with-the 'shanties' of the
Quebec lumberjacks, who frequently weresailors as well as woodsmen A and always sang at their
work.. According to Ralph Connor,
the Half-breed or metis from whom
he recorded this song was a handsome chap with beautiful voice and
, manners   and   was   a   first-class
. canoeman. - - A A number of purely
French Canadian chanteys as well
will be sung by Ulysse Paquin, at1
Vancouver, as the /intention is to
make this Sea Music Festival as
Canadian as possible!	
Reconstructs Connft&nt's Oldest Music
i
A
DR. HEALEY WILLAN,
The oldest music hitherto recorded on the American continent
has been unearthed and recoil-'
.structed for production at the
forthcoming Sea Music Festival a i
Vancouver. These are three
song-dances ascribed to the Indian
Cliier Mambertou by Mare Lcscar-
bot, the "young lawyer from Pari:;
who in the year 1609 published an
entertaining account of the life
of the French garrison at Port
Royal in Nova Scotia. Lescarbot,
like all educated men of his day.
was something of a musician, and
wrote down inysolfa notation tho
melody of songs-* he heard thi:.
Indian chief sing, but no modern
historian appears to have realized
the importance of this notation
However, in reconstructing an
English   version  of "L'Ordre do
Bon-Temps," written in French by
Louvigny de Montigny, J. Murray
Gibbon of th-*- C. P. R., was struck
by the possibilities of this music,
and suggested to Dr. Healey
Willan, of thc Toronto Conservatory of .Music, that he should arrange it for modern producfon.
To an Indian, the melody-is only
half the music, and the problem
was to discover the original
rhythm. Fortunately after considerable study, Dr. Willan was
able to find in the traditional
tribal music of tho Melicite Indians, who are descendants of the
Souriquois of Lescarbot's time,
three traditional dance rhythms
which exactly fit the melodic line
of the notes recorded by the
French historian of three hundred
years ago.     In this manner three
delightful song-dances have been
reconstructed and have been incorporated in the ballad opera
"The Order of Good,Che,er," which
will be produced on January 25th
at Vancouver. Hitherto the oldest song identified with Canada
has been the hymn "Jesus Aha-
tonia,'' whicli Father Brebeuf
translated into the Huron dialect
about the year 1642 for the Indian
converts at Quebec. The song-
dances of Chief Mambertou are,
however, native to Canada and
were noted by Lescarbot in the
year 1606. ' The probability is that
they were old even at that time,
as folktunes are handed down by
Indian-musicians from generation
to-generation.

LONDON TUNNEL IS     :
LONGEST IN THE WORLD
A
Contrary to popular belief, the longest tunnel in the world is not the
Simplon with its twelve miles odd. Few
people probably realize {hat the longest
���   tunnel actually stands to the credit of
British engineers and runs from Gold-
ers Green, a northern suburb of London, through the city to Morden, in
the southwest, a distance of sixteen
and a half miles.   It forms, of course,
. part of London's extensive underground
system of railways which; during the
last few years,, has. been undergoing
vast developments to keep pace with
modern transport requirements. Since
the war some ��15,000,000 are said to
have been spent on such work,  including the rebuilding of many stations.
Charing Cross station has been under
reconstruction for some months, and
the work on the new Piccadilly Circus
station has now been in progress for
some three and a half years. It is
anticipated that early in this year it
will be open for traffic and it will then
7 be possible to appreciate the great improvements which' have been carried
out in this example of Underground
London. It will be possible to" deal
with passengers at the rate of 50,000
an hour instead of less than half that
number at the old station. Apart from,
the greater space involved,'the use of*
more automatic ticket machines,
passimeter .booking offices and escalators combine to make this possible.
Are you thinking about building?

Star, Montreal, help you. Write to

WITH APOLOGIES TO WHOM
IT MAY CONCERN
If you're searching for a motto to start
the glad New Year,
And you're out to fight the devil with
a will,
You will find it easy going and you've
little else to fear
If you dig into your pocket and pay
your grocery bill.
This world is full of troubles and you're
bound to get your share,
You're off the track and riding for a
spill, 0
Just tighten up your armour and cast
aside dull care,
Take a mortgage on your pocket book
and pay your grocery bill.
When-you're in the final battle and
you're game right to  the end,
You've drained your cup and swallowed
your last pill,
You will find a place in heaven and an
everlasting friend,
If you've kept the home, fires burning
and paid your grocery bill.

and fog: caused trouble on
34. telephones over .a period
of two days in thc Kerrisdale
section of Vancouver, recently
The trouble occurred at
points where two separate
lines arc connected to the

The frost and fog created a
current - conductor between
them, "cross-talk" resulting.

it developed by wiping* off
