Operations Will Resume
At Esperanza Mine
Next Spring
The Esperanza mine will be operated again early next spring. Seattle capitalists headed by Mr.
Harry Bowyer, have reached an
agreement with the Esperanza
Mining Co. whereby they acquire a
large block of stock and assume
control of operations. All the necessary documents have been signed
and an office of the Esperanza
Mines Ltd. has been opened in
Mr. Bowyer will be in charge of
operations, and if weather conditions permit he will arrive at Alice
Arm within a month, in order to
complete a survey of the lower
claims. If he is unable to come, a
representative will arrive here to
look over conditions and make
plans for future operations.
It is planned to commence mining
operations as early as possible next
spring. A compressor plant will be
installed and development work will
be undertaken on a much larger
scale than in the past.
Formerly all work was done by
hand drilling, which made progress
slow and costly, and limited operations to a restricted area. It is
the plan of Mr. Bowver and associates to systematically develop the
extensive holdings of the company
and develop the bigger ore bodies.
The Esperanza mine has had a
chequered career. At no time has
sufficient capital been available for
extensive development purposes,
and it was therefore necessary to
follow the small veins of high grade
silver ore at a limited depth.
The Esperanza is admirably situated for the cheap mining, milling
and shipping of ore. It is located
at a distance of only 1 y2 miles from
the town of Alice Arm, and is connected by a good road. It is also
only 2 y2 miles distant from the
government wharf.
The original property comprised
three claims, but last year 14 additional claims were acquired from
various adjoining owners, and on
. which are several promising bodies
of high grade ore. The ores carry
silver, gold and lead values, with
silver values predominating. Tungsten ore is also found in commercial

Logging Operations To Start
Next Week
Logging operations will be commenced next week by Al. Falconer
on the flats near the Illiance River.
The timber logged will be cotton-
wood, and will be shipped to the
New Westminster Lamatco Co.
where it will be manufactured into
cottonwood veneer. There is a
nice stand of cottonwood near the
Illiance river, and a small crew will
be employed during the next two
months. The logs will be hauled
from the woods to the water by Mr.
Falconer with his caterpillar tractor.

An Entertainment In Aid
Of Relief Fund
On Thursday, November 20th.
the Relief Funds Committee met
various representatives in town
and discussed plans for raising
money.for the Fund.
It was decided that an entertainment be put on early in Jail
uary, as an earlier date would
conflict with other items for which
arrangements have already been
made. Mrs. Lang, Mrs. Ruckhaber,
E. R. Johnson, J. L. Anderson, and
Stuart Steele were elected as a
committee to take charge of the
drawing up of the programme,
setting the exact date, and making
all necessary arrangements for
the entertainment.
The purpose of the entertainment will ensure the committee of
full support of the community,
as regards our local talent
contributing their services to make
up the best programme ever put
on in Anyox.

Blossoms, Orphans and
Sheiks Win Games
On Monday
Three games of basketball were
played at the Gym on Monday
evening. The Buds and Blossoms
were the first to tangle. The
youngsters playd an enthusiastic
game, and as the score indicates
the game was very even. Score:
Buds-lO, Blossoms-12.
The Smelter team suffered another set-back when narrowly defeated by the Orphans on Monday
night. The Orphans again showed
an improvement especially in passing, but their shooting was erratic.
The Smelter lacked the services
of Joe Taylor, which left a weak
spot in their defenoe and which the
winners did not fail to take advantage of. Ellison-8, Ion-2, Pinck-
ney-1, Dixon-1, secured the points
for the losers, while W-. Piuckiify-
4, C. Karen-4, A. E. Field-4, and
A. Horner-2 were successful for
the Orphans. The half time score
was 10 8 in favor of Smelter.
The Orphans played better afterwards and secured the winning
basket in the last five minutes.

The game between the Orphans
and Smelter was more evenly contested than the previous struggles
between these two teams. There
was a great improvement in the
Orphans quintette, and had their
shooting been more accurate they
would have won by a great margin. Billy Cloke was a welcome
inclusion to the winner's side.

Every municipality in the province and also every unorganized
district is clamoring for funds for
the purpose of alleviating the unemployment problem. It is certainly plain that someone has to
bear the burden of taking care of
those who cannot obtain work,
and the bulk of the burden is falling upon the government. Already
however, there is a rumble of
criticism. The farmers of the
Fraser Valley are not in favor of
the expenditure of government
money for such purposes, and the
opposition members in the Legislature will probably criticize thp
government at a later date for
the abnormal expenditures. When
the present depression has passed,
and the people are called upon to
pay higher taxes on account of
relief money now being expended,
many a growl will probably be
heard. The government are
"between the devil and the deep
sea." Whatever they do criticism
awaits them. The government is
spending the money of the people,
to help the people. Those unfortunate enough to find themselves
without employment or funds cannot be allowed to starve. The
money now being expended in
this time of distress will be repaid
later by the people when times
are good and money plentiful, and
no one should grumble because
they are fortunately employed at
the present time.

One of the most effective means
to reduce unemployment is to insist on goods made in British
Columbia when making your purchases. Such a policy is commendable in every way. It increases our provincial payroll, and
instead of our money going to
outside points it remains in the
province. The people of British
Columbia will eventually be called
upon to repay the money now
being expended for relief purposes.

Germany Cuts Down Wheat
According to a trade report received from Berlin the Federal
Railway Company of Germany will
serve no more wheat cereals on its
dining cars. This is with the view
of stemming the tide of wheat imports into the country.
It is expected that the wheatless
menu will stimulate German rye
consumption in breads. At the present time Germany produces 128,-
590,000 bushels of wheat and consumes 202,070,000 bushels and at
, the same time produces 334,645,-
000 bushels of rye and consumes
only 255,605,000 bushels.

Modern developments in railroad
traffic leading to heavier trains and
increased speed Is bringing about
a concentrated study of the rail
weights, according to Grant Hall,
senior vice-president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, interviewed
recently. The railway, he stated,
has used 100-lb. rails since 1921 and
has more than 4,000 miles of this
weight of steel, particularly in the
heavy travel districts between the
larger cities and the Rockies, but
the heavier trains made possible by
greatly increased engine power
have combined to bring up the
question of 130-lb. rails which is
now being studied and on which a
final decision will soon be reached.

All alarmist talk of world overproduction of wheat Is wholly unwarranted, according to Dr. W. W.
Swanson, head of the department of
economics at the University of
Saskatchewan, interviewed on
board the Empress of Australia on
his way to the Imperial Economic
Conference. He instanced, in support of his view, the fact that in
the midst of the campaign to reduce
wheat acreage in the United States,
a drought had occurred which had
reduced the total yield of cereal
crops by more than the average
wheat crop of the country.

Every ton of British Columbia ooal used means employment for local miners and mine workers.
It means the maintenance of more homes in the Province-
It means the continued  local circulation of funds which
otherwise would leave the Province.
It means, if every B. C. user of coal will use local coal,
that the Vancouver Island, Nicola-Prinneton, and Crow's
Nest Pass coal fields, whose coal workers have been struggling on half time or less for months, again will be favored
with prosperous conditions.
For these reasons British Columbians should consider
carefully the source of the ooal which fills their bins this

You just can't imagine any
