Strong Company Now
Organized to Operate
Operations at the Esperanza
mine will be considerably extended
during the coming year aoonrding
to present plans. The management of the mine have successfully
effected a reorganization, a new
company having been formed with
a capitalization of $500,000.
It is understood that one of the
first things undertaken by the company will be the installation of a
power plant. A compressor has
already been purohased and is
ready for shipment when required.
Mr. N. Fraser, who is in charge
of operations at the mine states
that the mine is looking good.
A meeting of the Board of Directors will be held at Prince Rupert in the immediate future. At
this meeting future plans for operating the property will be made,
and a new seoretary elected to take
the place of Mr. Murray who
reoently left for the south.
Formerly the Esperanza was
i\ sjfned by a syndicate of Anyox
men. Later Prince Rupert men
were interested, but not enough
money was available for operations
on a scale large enough to pay
dividends. With the expansion of
the company it is expected that
ample funds will be available for
the conducting of operations on
a larger scale.
The Esperanza has shipped a
large quantity of high grade"silver
ore, and it is the opinion that the
ore bodies have only been scratched.
It is ideally located for cheap
mining, being only about two
miles from the government wharf.

Boxing With Basketball
Features This Week's
Two basketball garnet were play-
it the Beach Gym, on Wednesday
evening, both being of a high class
variety and the fans received plenty
of action for their money, with a
couple of good boxing bouts thrown
in for good measure,
n the first game the Rinkey Dinks
showed considerable improvement
over their last meeting with the
High School, only losing out by the
close score of 38—25. Clarence
Dresser was the high scorer for the
losers with 9 points. Asimus and
McMillan each notched twelve points
for the winners. The teams were:
High School; Steele 7; McDougall 6
Kent 1; Asimus 12; McMillan 12.
Rinky Dinks: Carney, Dresser 9,
Barclay 6, Wilson 4, McDonald 6.
The senior tilt provided the fans
with great excitement. It was a
ding-dong battle from start to finish,
the Mechanics finishing on the long
end of a 28—22 count. Three of
the Concentrator side were banished
and two of the Mechanics also for
indulging in fist fights during the
contest. Nobody was hurt, however, and the fans got a great kick
out of the proceedings. Hooper
was the big scorer for the losers
with 8 to his credit. McLachlan
was high man for the winners with

Record Snowfall
More snow fell throughout this
district during the week, and at the
present time more snow is on the
ground at this date than in any previous year since the oldest resident
can remember.
A special meeting of the Alice
Arm branoh of the British Columbia Chamber of Mines will be held
at the School House this evening,
Deoember 17th at 8 p.m. The
meeting has been oalled for the

plant for the use of Alioe Arm res
id en t s.
Mr. Marsh will address the meet

Mining Company Offers
and Power
A syndicate of Prince Rupert and
Vancouver people is being formed
for the purpose of taking over the
Success group of Mining claims at
Alice Arm according to advices
received from the south, and also to
supply the town of Alice Arm and
the surrounding mines with light
and power if the people of that place
wish it.
The scheme is to harness Falls
Creek, which passes over the Success property, and to use the power
so developed in the operation of the
mine and also of such adjacent
mines as wish to use it. Application will be made for a charter to
supply the town with light and
power. If the offer is accepted, the
probability is that Alice Arm will
have all modern utilities before
another winter comes around.
The Success group is a silver-
gold property a mile West of Alice
Arm, owned at present by W. A.
Wilson of Prince Rupert and
associates of Alice Arm. It adjoins
the Esperanza mine and is said to
have some very good showings.

Before the Knights of the Round
Table at the Empress Hotel,
Victoria recently, Attorney-General
Manson gave an optimistic lecture
illustrated with lantern slides, showing that British Columbia's production of wealth in various forms
has increased to an extent not generally realised. Electors who heard
the Attorney-General in recent by-
elections will recall the trend of his
remarks then, which were on the
same lines as he now takes.
•The Attorney-General said he was
a believer in sound advertising of
this kind. He could not see why
the Province, with all its potentialities, should not make itself known
to the world. To counteract a tendency towards pessimism among
the people it was useful also, he
said, to lay these facts before
British Columbians themselves.
The simple figures of the Province's growth, he believed formed
the best possible argument against
This is the argument, almost
word perfect, put up to the Minister
and his colleagues of the Government a year or more ago by the
British Columbian & Yukon Press
Association, when the newspapermen of the Province offered to cooperate with the Government on a
50-50 basis in a campaign of publicity which the Association members were prepared to enter into.
At that time, and more recently,
the proposal of the Press Association was turned down. It is recognised by businessmen the world
over, that there is no medium equal
to the newspapers to put over high-
class publicity of this nature. Perhaps with this change of heart, Att-
omy-General Manson and his colleagues will in 1928 adopt the scheme
proposed by the Press Association
and institute a publicity  campaign.
We believe it would produce
results not now dreamed of.
Diamond Drill Invented
By French Engineer
Black diamonds, or carbons,
were first used for rock boring by
Rudolph Leschot, a French engineer, in the construction of Mont
Cenis tunnel in 1864. Tbe diamonds were crimped in the face of
an annular ring or bit and caused to
rotate under pressure against the
rock face, thereby cutting a hole
suitable for charging with explosive.
Leschot's drill holes were made for
blasting with no intention of core
recovery, and the significance of
this aspect of the appliance was not
realized. Although blast holes are
no longer bored by diamond drilling,
diamonds are still crimped into the
face of an annular bit, which is
caused to rotate under pressure into
various rock formations. Leschot's
principles of operation have changed little, although more than half a
century of experience has enabled
us to refine his methods and equipment so that today the diamond drill
is an invaluable aid in nearly all
stages of the exploration and development of a mining property, in the
selection of bridge, dam, and foundation sites, in drainage and ventilation problems, oil-structure investigation, wildcat drilling, and similar problems.

liave freighted the first Butte ores
by ox-team to Fort Benton, river
port, for shipment to Swansea,
Wales. He established the Diamond R transportation system and
built roads throughout Montana.
He located the Mountain Chief
mine and sold it for $3700; it has
produced millions and is now valued
at $25,000,000. He was an U. S.
marshall in Montana Territory.
As a youth he was a steamship engineer and was the author of the
"Handbook for Steamboat Engineers," published in England, his
birthplace, and said to be the first
book on that subject.

Ontario  Mining  Road
Shows Profit
The Temiskaming & Northern
Ontario Railway is owned by the
Ontario government and operated
by a commission. For the fiscal
year ended Oct. 31 the road paid to
the government an operating surplus
of $1,300,000. This is the first
time in its history that the T. and
N. O. has met its full interest
charges. The steady growth of the
railway is a barometer of business
development throughout the North.
Though the road has had deficits in
the past, the government has not
looked upon them as deficits, but as
contributions to the advancement of
a part of Ontario which is now
coming into its own.

The decision of the Federal Government to undertake construction

work on the Hudson Bay Railway
makes it less likely than ever that
any big scheme for a western outlet to the Peace River country will
be undertaken by the Dominion

prefer to see some private company
undertake the work. It is pretty
clear that unless unusual pressure is

Famous Indian Treaty Opened New Empire for Settlement
1.—Chief Duck Head, Chief of the Blackfeet and descendant of Chief Crow Foot.      2.—Monument erected to memory
of Chief Crow Foot.     3.—Slto of old Chief Crow Foot's lodge.     4.—Decorating the grave of Chief Crow Foot.
Fifty years ago, or in the late
summer of 1877, only a few days
before the flrst locomotive engine
entered Western Canada, the most
important treaty between the Canadian Government and the Indians of
the plains was signed.
It was treaty No. 7, the one that
brought peace to the great plains and
threw open a new empire for settlement. The historic document was
signed on the banks of the Bow River
just east of Calgary and near the
Canadian Pacific Railway station of
Chmy. It is, possibly, a greater
tribute to the red men than to his
white brothers that the terms of the
trecty has Veen lived up to in every
detail.        #
On Sept.. :.:er 22,1927, the fiftieth
anniversary cf the merr.oraLle occasion, htin'dreds of people from all
walks of life, representatives of
various tr'1 ra of Indisns and officers
of the. Royal Canadian Mounted
r'oiioe gathered at the historic snot
for an irr.prnasb-e ms^orin! ser h-i
...ere a cairn and tablet had been
erected. Mrs. James F. Macleod,
widow of the late Colonel Macleod,
commissioner of the old Royal North
West Mounted Police, unveiled the
tablet. It was Colonel MacLeod who
was successful in securing the signing
of the treaty 60 years ago. The cairn
containing the tablet is in close
proximity to the grave of Chief Crowfoot, who in signing the treaty flung
open the great plains for settlement,
peaceful settlement, by the whites.
Mrs. Macleod and her son Norman
placed wreaths on the nearby grave.
Stonys, Crees, Blackfeet, Peigans and
Sarcees were represented by chiefs at
the ceremony. Hon. R. B. Bennett,
K.CM.P., spoke at the gathering,
tracing the incidents that led up to
the signing of the treaty. He also
quoted from the speech delivered at
the time by Chief Crowfoot as follows:
"While I speak, be kind and
patient. I have to speak for my people
v;ho are numerous, and who rely on
r.;e to follow that course which in the
future will tend to their good. The
plains are wide. We are children of
the plains; it is our home and the
buffalo has been our food always.
I hope you look upon the Blackfeet,
Blood and Sarcees as your children
now and that you will be indulgent
and charitable to them.
"They all expect me to speak now
for them and I trust the Great Spirit
will put into their breasts to be a
good people — into the minds of the
men, women and children and their
future generations.
"The advice given me and my
people has been very good. If the
police had not come into the country,
where would we all be now? Bad men
and whiskey were killing us so fast
that few, indeed, of us would have
been left today. The police have

/ ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD.   Saturday.    December   17  1927
Future Outlook  Alice
Arm Very Promising
When we published the news
that the Victor Spencer interests
had relinquished their bonds on
the four oopper properties which
they bonded in October of last
year, a number of our readers
were under the impression that
mining in Alice Arm was on the
down grade, and the end of the
camp was in sight. Such, however, is not the case. As we have
previously Btated the Spencer
people are storekeepers and do not
understand mining. The dropping
of mining properties by them does
not carry any weight.
Since they left the field others
have taken their place. A mining
company has been incorporated
with a capitalization of $500,000
to operate the Esperanza. Tlie
Alioe Arm Mining and Development Syndicate, which includes
influential capitalists has been
formed to develop the Success
Group and other properties. They
are also prepared to supply light,
power and water to the town of
Alice Arm.
In addition to those who will be
operating next year, can be included the Toric, Keystone, Silver
Cord, LeRoy, Eagle and Wolf.
Plans are also being made for
the operation of the Beach Molybdenum, which is situated four miles
down the inlet.
It is possible that other deals
may be consummated this winter,
including the Tiger, and the zinc
properties on McGrath mourtain.
Alice Arm is going to forge
ahead, There is too much mineral
exposed both underground and on
the surface for the oamp to lie
dormat. The big operators will
step in as soon as they are ready,
as they are doing in other camps,
and those who carry on in the
meantime are those who will
reap the reward.
Waterman's Mother, Mrs La Velle
left on Thursday for Seattle where
they will spend the Christmas holidays.
Mr. H. M. Selfe was a passenger
on Thursday for Vancouver where
he will join Mrs. Selfe and daughter
for the holidays.
J. Hume was a southbound passenger on the boat Thursday.
On Friday evening Deoember the

75c. a couple.
The I. O. O. F. will hold their
Christmas tree for the kiddies on
Thursday December 22nd. in the

Dune Munroe was a southbound
passenger on Thursday's boat.
Anyox had another heavy snow
fall on Wednesday night when an
additional eighteen inches fell.
This amount of snow is unprecedented for this time of year and it
is hoped that the latter part of the
winter will see very little of it.
