Mining News
Esperanza Mine Breaks into
Good Shoot of High Grade
That steady produoer t>t high
grade silver ore, the Esperanza
Mine is looking better now than
iever it did. For the past few
months work haB been concentrated
in the tunnel above the Baldy tunnel. Here a small vein of high
'grade ore Was found alongside the
dyke whioh outs through the property. This vein has now widened
out to a width of three feet of high
grade ore, and is found on the foot-
wall of a quartz vein six feet in
width. This quartz vein also carries ore, but whether it will be
profitable to mine it has not yet
been fully ascertained.
The richest ore on' the footwall is
12 inches wide, and samples taken
from the remaining two feet,of ore,
while, not s? rich, gave assay
returns of 1.58 ozs, gold, and 67.4
ozs. silver per ton. Taking the
present market price of silver this
ore is worth $73.38 per ton. The
fact that this ore carries over li
ozs. of gold per ton has given great
satisfaction to the owners.
Work on the ore vein is being
steadily proceeded with, and the
next few weeks work will be
watched with interest.
Four hundred sacks of ore are
now at the mine, and this stock is
being added to at the rate of over
Wo tons per day. '
Compressor Plant for Home-
stake Mine
The Homestake'Mining Co.
received a compressor plant on
Monday by the Cardena for their
mine at the Kitsault Glacier. The
compressor will be capable of operating two drills, and will use gasoline for fuel. During the week the
company's speeder has been busy
hauling it over the Dolly Varden
Railway to Camp 8 from there it
will be packed or drawn by go-
devils to the mine. The plant will
be put into commission as quickly
as possible and will be operated
throughout the winter, An ore
oar also arrived by the same boat.
The work of building oamp is
nearing completion, the cook house
and dining room being already
occupied. Work underground has
been resumed, and the future of the
mine is promising. '
Good Ore Struck on   Rex
The Rex property,' which joins
the David Copperfield on the south
was the scene of a strike of good
ore during the week, when Archie
McPhail uncovered an ore vein
four feet wide, and traoable ou the
surface for a distance oi 1,500 feet.
The ore oarries considerable argen-
tite and brittle silver and also
ehalcopyrite oopper. Samples have
been sent out for assaying, and
returns are anxiously awaited. The
Rex property runs to the Dolly
Varden railroad tracks, which fact
ensures cheap transportation of all
ore taken from the property. The
strike was made 300 feet from the
Mining Engineer Inspects
Mr. E. Martin Torneley, mining
engineer for the Keystone Mining
Co. arrived in Cilice Arm on Mon^
day, and visited the Sunset property, which the oqmpany has under
bond. He was well pleased with
the general outlook at the mine,
Dance Held at
Alice Arm Hotel
The dance held last Saturday
evening at the Alioe Arm Hotel outshone all previous dances as the sun
outshines the moon. For brillianoy
of scene, the musio of the orohestra
and number of dancers present, the
dance on Saturday was the best
yet. The orohestra was composed
of Mrs. T. W. Falconer, and Miss
Violet. McKay piano; Mr. A. B.
Giffon saxaphone; Mr. E, R. Oatman, oornetjMr. C. E. Hutchinson,
clarinet; and J. D. Cameron, drums
and traps. The players were bent
on giving everyone a good time, and
they played unceasingly "until it
was time for the departure of the
Anyox visitors.
A special feature of the evening was
the dancing of the Misses Kathleen
and Irene Bruggy, Kathleen danced
the Sword Dance, and both danced
the Highland Fling, both dances
being perfectly executed, and the
little tots received rounds of
There were over thirty persons
who came,over from Anyox to join
in the merriment and the general
verdict was that' a real good time
had been spent. Mr. Geo, Bruggy
was the Master of Ceremonies an
offioe whieh lie .handled in his usual
efficient manner.
A sumptuous supper was served
and great praise is due to the ladies
for the wonderful confections provided, and also to those who spent
considerable time in preparing the
Smelter Football Team
Wins Championship
A very suocessful season of football was brought to a close on
Monday evening, when the Smelter
met and defeated their old opponents, the Mine, aud Outplayed
them all the way, winning with a
store of 2-0.
Cy, Greenwell and Elder scored
the goals for the Smelter. Both
teams played good clean football
but it was dearly evident that the
Smelter were the superior team. •,,
The following teams lined up:
Mine: 'goal, Chapman;
Stewart, and Lange; half baoks,
Cane, Pymn, Currie; forwards,
Twaddle, Barnes, Stewart, Ingram,
Dearlove. - Smelter: goal, Mc-

the home of Mrs. Charles Clay was
the scene of a delightful dinner
party to celebrate the nineteenth
birthday* of her daughter Miss
Bernice A. Clay.
Among the invited guests were
Misses Mary O'Neill, Janet Moffett,
Ruth Gordon, Lucy Teabo, Evelyn,
Rice, Nettie Thompson,, Margaret
Barr, Mabel Stevens, Mary Harrington and Rita McDonald.

The   final game
Open       Singles
between H. Ballfc
junr. took place on
noon last, and atjb
exciting game, whii
full length of five gets, Mr. Cole
emerged the victor. "V '
In the first three sets Ballion
undoubtedly had the edge on his
opponent, his shots being better
placed and having better length on
many occasions he left his opponent standing at the net with passes
down the sidelines; Many points
were lost by him through mistimed
overhead smashes, fending them
either out of the court or into the
net. ! Cole made'few mistakes
in this most effective of all strokes
smashing being one of bis strong
points, but in his other strokes he
seeine to lack the effisjctive placing
of the ball, too muoh, in the centre
of the court, and not; close enough
to the side lines. His out strokes
are very deadly and accurate,
although there is not the pace to
them that one gets In, the drive,
and in this game it was specially
noticeable, Ballion's driving being
very fast and only Cole's quickness
at the net, saving him on many
occasions from being beaten.
.They were both serving well,
except in the last set when Ballion
fell down, not only in his service
but also in his play., His game
went to pieces completely,"and Cole
playing the best tenuis of the game
won the final set 6-0.
The complete reversal of form in
Ballion's play in this set is hard to
explain, but it is very certain that
Cole's play was very good, that
Ballion would have had to maintain
his previbus form or; play even
better than he had been doing in
the other sets, io have won.
It was a splendid game to watch
and was muoh enjoyed by the small
enthusiastic orowd present.
The weather was everything
that could be desired, giving no
advantage to either player in the
matter of light.
We must congratulate Mr. Cole
on winning the oup and we may
also say that his ooming to Anyox
has helped greatly to stimulate and
revive interest in tennis among
the old Anyox players,, an interest
which was, more or less, waning on
account of lack of hew blood.

Stand by Your
Town Newspaper.
' Stand by your local newspaper.
If anyone outside of Anyox or
Alice Arm hears of anything that
is going on there, it is a pretty safe
bet that the local paper was responsible for the spreading-of the news.
Every town gets its money's worth
from the little local newspaper.   It
is the wagon that carries all the
goods to market, and it ought to be
kept in good repair.   It will pay to
grease it, paint it, and keep its running gears in good shape and shelter.   Stand by your local newspaper.    It is   the guardian and
defender   of  every interest,  the
forerunner and pioneer of every
advance movement, and the sturdy
advocate of law and order.   Take
it away and it would not be  six
months before the town would look
as though  it  had  been  doped.
Organizations   would relax,  and
some would perish for lack of publicity.    And the outside   world
would know no more of what had
happened or what people were
doing in this district, than they
would of some little town located1
in the heart of central Africa.

Tone of copper market is better
than last week. Prices are slightly
higher. Friday bids were 13.50 cents
for domestic delivery with no business
reported at this figure. Market \s a
quarter higher with big producers
holding at 13 7-8 cents. Several domestic inquiries for substantial tonnages
ranging from 1,000,000 pounds upward,
are in the market. Friday and Saturday export and domestic sales were
Several factors enter into making
the market firmer. Advance in price
of electrolytic and standard in London
is reflected here. Since Friday electrolytic is up £1 on spot and 10s. on three
months, while standard is up £1 10s.
6d. London advance is viewed - in
some quarters as reflecting an early
adjustment of Ruhr situation, while it
is also explained as being due to continental buying of copper as an investment. It is reported from London
that even firms outside of the metal
trade are investing funds in copper,
lead and tin.
Effect of the Japanese disaster on
the copper market has not been
determined. Up to this time it has
not been felt here. Japan has been
buying in small lots and no orders
have been received to defer shipments.
Extent .to which copper consumption
will be Increased by rebuilding programme, will not be ascertained for
some time. Electrolytic for domestic
consumption is 13 3-1 to 13 7-8 cents a
pound delivered to end of November.
Price aside ship New York is 13 34
cents. Lake copper is dull at 13 7-8 to
14 cents delivered. Price c. i. f.
European ports is 13.95 cents.
Boston—Few copper stocks can show
the price stability of Chile Copper
during the wide market swings of the
year. The high of 301-2 was touched
when negotiations for the purchase of
control by Anaconda were under way
last January. During the break in
the market of early summer the stocks
sold down to 21 14$, since recovering
to 27, around which level it now clings
a range of only little over6points. It
is singularly, too, that when it was
announced that control was to bepur-
chased at $35 a share for 2,200,000
shares by Anaconda, the stock did not
respond in the market. It hung
around 20 to 30.
At its current level Chile is off eight
points from the price at which control
was purchased, representing a shrink-,
age on paper to Anaconda of $17,600,
