Unfinished Business Is
Disposed Of At A. C. L.
The adjourned meeting of the
Community League on Wednesday
advanced the business a few stages
further but leaves it still uncompleted. Like the last meeting it
had its exciting moments. There
was a skirmish at the opening as
to whether all the minutes of the
preoeding meeting should be included in the League's records.
This was finally deoided upon
but the actual business transacted
after the rejection of the Chairman's report had to be repeated
last night. The Chairman's explanation of the change in the
secretaryship was included in his
report which was, accordingly,
accepted by the meeting. The
General Superintendent, Mr. W.
R. Lindsay, also explained his
desire for a change; he stated that
the procedure followed might very
well have been different and that]
the resulting confusion was due to
the unanticipated change in the
attitude of some of the Councillors.
On rising to read his report the
retiring secretary was accorded an
ovation. He drew attention to
certain needs of the League which
had been neglected due to the alio
oation of more than the estimated
amount of League funds to the
construction of the gymnasium.
This report was likewise accepted
and without more ado Mr. John
McCallum was again unanimously
elected to the Hospital Board.
In the regular way nominations
were asked for the Counoil and
about sixty names were put forward, Messrs. 0. Macintyre, Dunwoodie, and Murdoch trying hard
to complete a ticket. With only
five acceptances it was decided to
pass over this item and getou with
the general business.   Discussion
'."' f the proposed constitutional
amendment was voted down on the
amendment being ruled out of order.
A number of the audience then
left, choosing not to listen to a
wrangle over whether small children should not be allowed in the
gymnasium during the hours set
for the sohools. Principal Hartley
took responsibility for the order
1 debarring those under ten years of
age, saying that no provision exist-
! ed for their participation in organ-
| ized games. Mr. Kirkwood advanced the liberal view that all sohool
children might very well be given
a sohool period during the day under the direction of a fully qualified
instructor in physioal education.
He was reminded that the use of
ihe gymnasium by the school child-
Ien had been mentioned as a con-
ideration when the most suitable
ite for the new gymnasium was
iscussed last year. Other mem-
jers recommended the installation

Esperanza Directors Are
Impressed With
Thomas McMeekin, president of
the Esperanza Mining Co., accompanied by D. B. McDougall and
Bert Wilson, directors, arrived in
Alice Arm on Monday from Prince
Rupert. During their visit they
made a thorough examination ofthe
mine. They were surprised at the
quantity of ore developed, and pre
dieted that the Esperanza would be
developed, into a big producing
It is the present plan of the com
pany to continue development in
order to prove the extent of the big
ore body recently crosscut. Ore in
the other tunnels will also be developed at the same time.
It is planned to drive a new tunnel under the big gold ore body
This tunnel will encounter the ore
at an additional depth of 50 feet,
and will satisfy the owners as to
whether the high values obtained
in the upper tunnel persist with
Shipping of ore may be carried
out this spring, but this course has
not been definitely decided upon.
The annual general meeting ot
the company will be held in Prince
Rupert on Tuesday next, March
26th. when a board of directors will
be elected for the ensuing year and
future plans made.
Awake Schedule
Owing to the change in the
schedule of the C. N. R. Steam
ships to Anyox, the schedule of
the Awake will be changed to conform with the new conditions,

Alice Arm Celebrates
St. Patrick's
The "Seventeenth of Auld Ireland" was celebrated at the Alice
Arm Hotel on Saturday evening,
when practically the entire town
were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. J.

early part of the evening. The
winners were: Ladies' first prize,
Mrs. N. Fraser; consolation, Mrs.
W. M. Cummings. Gent's first

Following cards, a . sumptuous
supper was served, after which
dancing was indulged in, which terminated a very pjeasant evening.
Anyox May Have Radio
Plans are being formulated with
a view to forming a radio association at Anyox. It is felt that a
radio inspector for Northern B. C.
is a growing necessity. The annual
fee of $1.00 in fact is levied for the
purpose of paying the cost of inspection. A visit was paid recently
by an inspector from the south,
Mr. A. L. Gray who gave valuable
advice and suggestions.
Radio owners are requested, to
watch for an announcement of a
general meeting. An effort will
be made to have periodic lectures
and other means of assistance to
radio fans.

Huge Throng Enjoy St.
Patrick's Dance At
It was the unanimous opinion of
everyone present at the St. Patrick's dance held on Friday, March
15th. that it was the most well-
attended and lively dance ever
held iu the new gymnasium.
The spacious hall was filled to
the limit with dancers, who enjoyed
themselves stepping to tbe delightful strains of the Savona orchestra,
who excelled themselves in rendering the various numbers. Popular
dance music was played throughout
the evening interspersed with Irish
So enjoyable was the evening
that when the dance previous to the
Home Waltz was announced, the
crowd yelled for more and the
dance was continued until 3 a.m.
Three hundred and fifty sat down
to a bounteous supper, and the
numbers taxed the efforts of the
ladies to the limit, but everyone was
sufficiently supplied.
A feature of the evening was the
chairs supplied in the dance hall by
the ladies of the Catholic Church
They helped considerably towards
making everyone comfortable.
The ladies of the Catholic Church
deserve great credit for the able
manner in which all arrangements
were carried out. The committee
in charge of affairs were as follows:
Mrs. A. Morton, (convenor), Mrs.
C. W. Ruckhaber, Mrs. J. Tierney,
Mrs. O'Brien, Mrs. T. Pinckney,
Mrs. Loftus. Mrs. J. Wierof Alice
Arm also assisted.
Keystone May Operate
This Year
Word was received locally a few
days ttgo from Al. Clary, part
owner of the Keystone Mine that
arrangements have been made
with the Keystone Mining Co. to
further develop the mine.
Development work, will probably
consist of driving ahead on the
long tunnel which was near the
ore body when work was suspended
in the fall of 1927. Or it is possible
that crosscuts may be driven from
the head of the tunnel in an effort
to pick up the ore.
Transaction  of   Much
Business At P. T. A.
At a meeting of the P. T. A. on
Monday progress was reported regarding the first aid room on which
the Association is spending seventy-five dollars. A review was also
given of the inter-school basketball
competition which has engaged a
score of beys for over two months.
The High School juniors look like
eventual winners.
Plans for an essay contest in the
elementary school were shelved indefinitely but the committee which
prepared these was accorded a vote
of thanks.
The Association is now casting
about for some worthy purpose for
the money which is now unexpectedly thrown back on its hands.
The Rev. J. Dewar then presented an impressive analysis of Child
Labour conditions throughout the
world, dealing with the efforts of
International Child Labour Conventions to better conditions. The
Anyox P. T. A. has undertaken to
forward the recommendations of the
Canadian Council on Child Welfare
to the Provincial Convention of the
P. T. A. with a resolution that
government action be taken.
The recommendations requests
"the regulation of the night employment of children and young
persons in agriculture assuring
them a period of rest compatible
with their physical needs, in the
case of children under 14, not less
than 10 consecutive hours, and in
the case of young persons between
14 and 18 years of age, not less
than 9 consecutive hours".
The speaker deplored also the
exploitation of oriental children by
Western capitalists and argued that
every precaution be taken to safeguard the young of this country.
When Canada, he said, has adjusted such matters at home, she can
then use her influence to promote
similar legislation in European and
Oriental countries.

It is planned by the Department
of Mines to increase the staff of
the district engineers. We hope
it will be done and done quickly.
It is something that has been needed for a long time, especially in
the North-western district. It is
impossible for one man, however
energetic he may be to cover this
enormous area, that stretches from,
the Yukon boundary in the north
to Bella Coola in the south. Under
present conditions he is compelled
to race over the ground pausing
here and there to make a hurried
examination and pass on to other
fields in order to cover the whole
district before the early snows
cover the higher altitudes. Three
resident mining engineers in this
district during the summer months
is necessary. One of the duties of
a resident mining engineer is to
give advice to small mining companies, and also prospectors who
are developing a property. This
he cannot do if time does not allow
him to make a thorough examination. A resident-engineer should
also be allowed sufficient time to
make a report upon a property
when requested by the owner.
Often a property could be disposed
of by the prospector if an engineer's
report was available. The owner
of a mining property cannot . as a
rule afford the services of art independent engineer, and this is
where the resident engineer can be
of .considerable benefit to a district.
We hope the increase will be made
at once so that results can be attained this summer.
Several times within the course,
of a year, it is our sad duty to
record the death of some mine
worker, in the north who met his
death from a blast, falling irom a
high place or crushed by a fall of
rock from the roof. Oftimes the
cause of death is through neglect to
Woodbine Co. Decides
To  Develop
Oiic of ihe most important events
of the week has been the announcement of the new deal that the
directors of the Woodbine Gold
Mining Company has been successful in making with the vendors.
More interest l\as been centered in
this company-of recent months than
any of the others in the northern
area, because' of the large number
of people who are shareholders,
Rightly or wrongly, there was a
deeply ingrained suspicion in the
minds of the shareholders that they
were not getting a square deal, and
that some movement Was under
vyay by which the property .might
be lost to them. Too much importance cannot be attached to such
a rather sinister theory, knowing,
the high type of men whp have been
on the directorate in the past
months. But that the suspicion
existed, cannot be denied, and it
was freely expressed at the adjourned meeting-'on Monday of last week.
Now the company has practically
got ownership , of the property.
They pay $35,000 in cash to the
vendor, and that is all the cash from
the treasury that he will get. . The
balance of the payments will be in
!§t6ck of the company amounting to
666,066 shares. With $100,000 in
cash from retuns from the smelter.
If the mine is able to make payment
of the smelter'si returns everyone
.will be satisfied. The company
will benefit as they prove up the orei
and cash in on ore shipments. If-'
thev do not get* adequate smelter
returns.he will get no. money, and
that will be because there is no
commercial ore in the mine. Then,
if the mine is worthless, the shares
he is to be given will be practically
worthless also!
A sum of $15,"0C)0 is in the company's, treasury for carrying on
work, and while that.-, is small, it
will be enough for about five months
and in the meantime ore will be
shipped to the smelter arid its values
proved beyond all shadow of doubt.
With a brand new directorate and
a new policy, the shareholders felt
very happy when they left the
meeting. It will be interesting' to
await events. ' ''.
take proper precautions. "Familiar:
ity breeds contempt" is an, old
adage. Often those that suffer
death are old timers in a mine.
They get careless, especially with
powder, and some day they pass
out iff a hurry. The man that
takes undue chances is a damn fool,
If you are not forced to take
chances, don't do it.

Outlook for Copper Is
Good and Producers
Engineering and Mining Journal
Maroh 2nd.
Unusually turbulent conditions
have prevailed in the oopper market during the last few days. The
entry of several of the largest consumers into the market and their
failure to completely satisfy their
requirements, even at the advanced
quotations, has revealed iu some
measure the panicky nature of the
situation. The largest producers
are sold out further in advance
than they feel is desirable, yet the
demand for deliveries, even further
in the future continues. A feature
of the tocent demand from large
fabricators has been the request for
a considerable tonnage of prompt,
late Maroh, and early April copper.
These requests indicate that fabricators find themselves in an underbought position, despite the large
purchases made for these positions
several months ago. Consequently, the demand from ultimate consumers must be extremely heavy.
Several producers are completely
sold'out for deliveries earlier than
June, and as a result were forced
to open their books for shipment in
that month to meet the demand of
the past week. Considerably more
than half of the 28,000 tons purchased by domestic consumers during the week ending today   has
been for June delivery. In one or
two instances, a premium is reported to have been offered for near by
positions, but records of such transactions are lacking.
British Columbia leads all Canada in percentage of telephones to
population, the ratio being 18.1
telephones per hundred of population, followed with Ontario's 17.46
telephones per hundred of population.
Over 93 per cent, of Vancouver's
population is literate—a higher
standard than most cities.

Cains River.

It deceives the animals themselves.
Thus, the call of tbe cow moose in
the mating season is more often
than not a successful lure in bringing the bull to the hunter. The
cry of the hunting wolf and the
honk of the migrating goose are
easily imitated by the initiate and
are easy of interpretation. There
Is, however, nothing particularly
new in this. What is new, is Mr.
Allen's claim that animals communicate with one another by
sounds inaudible to the human ear.
That they do converse and communicate one with the other is demonstrated in a thousand ways
each day. What onr well-known
guide suggests is that radio will
eventually solve the question and
be the means of interpretation of
the animal communication.
That the human ear is sensitive to but a very narrow and
limited range of vibrations is in fact
eertain. What Mr. Allen hopes to
prow shortly is that all animals
ar* sensitive to, and make use of,
"wave lengths" outside the range
of mankind.
"It is a common occurrence ir
the woods to see a cow moose leav
her calf, or a deer her fawn," says
Mr. Allen by way of example. "I
have seen it hundreds of times.
Every time the mother animal has
instructed her young, in a language inaudible to human ears, not
to stray. That language was quite
intelligible to the young, but although I have sometimes been
within touching distance, I have
never heard the faintest sound, beyond at most, the blowing out of
air from the nostrils which had no
apparent significance. The young
of the moose or deer will remain
exactly as its mother left it, even
though she be gone for half an
hour at a stretch. More than that
—in case of extreme need it will
"radio" its mother without apparent sound. >
"I have experimented on the problem many times. In each case it
has been the same. I have waited
until the mother has gone some
distance; then have approached
and stroked the young animal. Beyond a slight twitching of the
skin, it has not moved, but it must
have sent out a call, for almost
immediately I would hear the
crashing return of the mother
through the undergrowth. At such
moments I would not pursue my
investigations further."
Mr. Allan has cited many other
"demonstrations" to members of
the Tourist Department of the
Canadian Pacific Railway who are
encouraging him to develop his
theory still further as he engages
in the role of guide, philosopher
and friend to the fisherman and
the hunter. 266

Lots of Money Available
For Public Works
While Atlin, Prinoe Rupert and
Skeena ridings have had thei
appropriations seriously cut, there
is offered the bright prospect that
this will he made good by expendi
tures under the new loan bills.
When the public works votes for
the various ridings were tabled in
the house the northern members
made a strong protest against the
appropriation for development
roads in the north while more
money was made available
for surfaced roads in tbe south.
The votes as tabled will give Prince
Rupert district only $27,000, Atlin
$32,000 and Skeena $55,000. Omineca does a little better, having
been allowed $75,000.
' Speaking iu the legislature on
one of the loan bills before the
house, Hon. N. S. Lougheed, minister of public works, said in regard
to the northern portion of the province tributary to the C. N. Railway, that special consideration
would be given to that district in
tbe matter of providing it with
suitable roads to permit the development of tbe immense and valuable resources in that important
Under the bill referred was
expected that $6,000,000 would be
available for road construction.
