singing—they'll never die. "Joe"

Esperanza  Mine   Will
Shortly Resume
The Esperanza mine, which is
less than a mile from Alice Arm,
and whioh has produced over $100,-
000 in silver values will resume
operations this year. Reorganization of the company has been effected, and with the acquisition of new
capital snfficient funds are available for a resumption of operations
whioh will be on a larger scale
than formerly. It is planned to
start operations within the next
few weeks.
Two meetings of the company
were held in Anyox during the
week, at which plans for future
operations were perfected. These
plans are expected to be made public next week.

Decision Given Against
Local Wrestler was
Dick Stubbs, the well known
Anyox wrestler, who left here a
short time ago to compete in the
wrestling contest for the Light
Heavy Championship for B. C.
gave a very good account of himself in the wrestling tournament
held at Queen's Park Arena, at New
Westminster last week. Stubbs
proved too clever for F. Peterson
of the Royal City, although Dick
failed to secure a fall in the time
limit of 10 miuutes, he was declared
the winner for his aggressive tactics.
Regarding the match the Vancouver Sun says. "R.r S. Stubbs, a
wrestler of considerable experience,
failed to throw Frank Peterson of
Westminster Y. M. C. A., but he
was the agressor and won easily.
He looks good to take 145-pound
In the second bout, held on Friday, Dick lost to A. Overland of
the Westminster Y. M. C. A.
From Vancouver press reports it
seems that he was handicapped, for
the referee seemed inclined to favor
Overland, and this probably was the
cause of defeat.
The following is taken from the
Daily Province, shows that Dick
got a rather raw deal.
''A. Overland of the Westminster
Y. M. C. A., secured the welterweight crown by defeating R. S.
Stubbr, of Anyox B. P. O. E. best
two falls out of three. In the first
ten minutes there was no fall,
Stubbs being the aggressor. . After
11 minutes and 34 seconds of the second round, during which time the
cont stants were on their feet sparring for a hold, Stubbs threw his
man and clamped on a half-nelson
and heaillock to secure the fall.
Overland took the second fall in five
minutes with an elbow roll, and the
deciding fall in one minute with a
similai hold. In this bout tliecrowd
took exception to Referee McDonald's actions in the second frame
when he jumped across and tapped
Overland instantly Stubbs'shoulders
touched the mat without giving the
northern boy a chance to roll away,
while on the occasion of Stubbs
pinning Overland, the Royal City-
athlete's shoulders were held down
for nearly a minute before the call
was made.

The proposal of George Houser,
president of the Automobile Club
of British Columbia, to take away
the road construction of the province and operate it under a Highway Commission is something that
will never be tolerated by outlying
sections of the province. If such a
policy was carried out it would
mean an almost total starvation of
the sections not connected with the
automobile road system of the
province. Mining roads, pack
trails and foot trails would receive
second consideration and the
money derived from taxation in the
north would be spent for joy
riding speed fanatics in the south,
and road house frequenters, who
demand a perfectly smooth road to
lull them to sleep after a night's
debauch at their favorite haunt.
The brilliant idea of a Highway
Commission seems like the product of an after-dinner speech,
with notoriety as the speaker's
chief ambition. The scheme is a
ridiculous one. It plainly shows
that there are still some people left
who need educating to the fact
that the prosperity of the province
depends not on building macadamized and concrete roads for auto
speed fiends, but roads and trails
into our mining and agricultural
sections. This is of vital importance and is realized by the government, who are doing their
utmost to provide transportation
for the sparsely settled districts.
This year promises to be the
commencement of an era of prosperity for the Dominion of Canada.
A prosperity that will be permanent, Foreign capital in huge
sums is pouring into the country,
and the whole Dominion, from
Quebec to Vancouver Island is
sharing the inflow of gold. The
mining industry is receiving much
attention, and from every province
comes reports of the commencement of development work and the
construction of reduction plants.
Pulp and paper mills are being
erected and put into operation as
quickly as possible, and our vacant
lands are being brought under the
plough and created into wealth.
Simultaneously with the inflow of
How Copper Rods and
Fine Wires Are Made
Copper wire and rods are made
from refined metal cast in the form
of wire bars, the processes used
being described briefly by F. P.
McCue in a recent issue of The
Anode: The wire bar is passed
through a series of rolls, each set
of which reduces its diameter and
increases its length until it finally
emerges as a rod of the required
size. Very thin rods are further
reduced by being drawn through
one or more chilled steel dies.
Another method of producing
rods is that of extrusion. A billet
of red hot metal is placed in an
extruding machine where a great
hydraulicplunger presses it through
a die in the same manner and just
as easily as tooth paste is squeezed
through tlie opening of a tube. As
a rule only one operation is required
when this method is employed,
although in some instances rods
ire drawn through dies after being
extruded in order to give them
additional strength and hardness.
The most noteworthy advantage of
the extrusion method is the great
variety of cross-section shapes that
can be produced.
Wire is manufactured in much
the same manner as rods, except of
course, that it undergoes many
more drawing operations. Small
sizes of wire are frequently drawn
continuously in one operation
through a number of dies, each die
in turn reducing the wire's diameter and increases its length. In
this manner wires can be drawn as
fine as 1/1,000 of an inch—diamond
dies, instead of steel, being used for
the very small sizes.
In the last 21 months British
air liners have flown nearly 2,000,-
000 miles and carried 25,000 passengers without a single mishap
involving injury to either passengers or crew.
capital comes increased numbers of
settlers to swell our population.
The Canadian National Railways
are no longer a millstone around
our necks. They are rapidly
approaching the stage when they
will be an asset of consequence.
Sir Henry Thornton, president of
the railway, believes that in fifteen
years Canada will have a population of twenty-five million people.
This may sound visionary, but we
must remember that Sir Henry's
predictions has a habit of coming
true. Canada, with its mines,
timber and agricultural lands is a
vast storehouse of wealth, almost
untouched. It has within its
boundaries those things that are
becoming depleted in many lands,
and the future of Canada is
brighter than any other country in
the world.

Would Take Road Work
From Government
Support of proposals to establish
a highway commission to administer construction of roads in British
Columbia without supervision of
the public works department is
being considered by the Automobile Club of British Columbia, president George Houser announced
reoently. "The highways have
become of too great importance to
be administered by rule of political
expediency," he said. "Most of
our roads are being built under
pressure instead of necessity and
the result has been that we are far
behind in our road programme.
Present conditions give every constituency desiring highway work
an unfair advantage over the government. There is under construction at present 150 miles of
new roads. More than 500 miles
of construction is necessary to link
up all important sections of the
province and to connect with the
Alberta road system."

After an amendment to reduce the

to $1 had been moved in committee
of supply in the House of Commons
on Saturday by Miss Agnes McPhail
Progressive member for Grey Southeast (Ontario), during consideration
of estimates for the Department of
National Defence and the hearing of
Miss McPhail's objections to the
military having influence upon educational system in various provinces
through cadet training, J. C. Brady
Conservative member for Skeena,

will always be," Mr. Brady said,

youth and training them to respect
law and order."

Does It Pay to Advertise?
Coca-Cola was put on the market
in 1886. The first 25 gallons of
syrup sold for $25.00. That money
was immediately invested iu advertising. Recently the business
changed hands. Twenty Million
dollars was the price. The Wall
Street Journal alluded to it as
$20,000,000 worth of good will.

not only to get something.
