Mining Operations Will
Commence at
•Within, a few days operations
will be commenced at the Esperanza mine. Angus MaoDonald and
Mr. Crosby arrived from Prince
Rupert on Tuesday in order to
make arrangements for a resumption of mining.
It is planned to extend some of
the existing tunnels aud also to
drive a lower tunnel, which will
give greater depth to the ore
A compressor plant will be installed as soon as possible, but
meantime drilling will be owried
on by hand.
The Esperanto was formerly
owned by an Anyox syndicate, but
recently new capital has been included and the reorganization was
due chiefly to Mr. Angus MacDonald, who has spent several months
in the south with successful results.
Ample funds are available for a
large programme of development
work. ■
The Esperanza is a mine with a
-splendid record, being one of the
most persistent shippers of high
grade silver ores in the province.
'•Lack of capital has heretofore been
instrumental in conducting operations on a small scale, but the advent of sufficient money for a full
development programme will undoubtedly increase the tonnage of
future shipments of ore. It is also
probable that a concentrating mill
will be erected in the future, to take
care of tbe second grade ore that
formerly was thrown into the
Outlook for Baseball Not
Very Bright
Up to the time of going to press
there has been no development in
the baseball situation in Anyox.
It looks very much as though there
will be no league ball this season, as
1 the Mine find it impossible to field a
I team and none of the boys at the
Beach are overly enthusiastic over
the prospects of a two team league
affair. A series of outside games
seems to be the only remedy. Anyox
will be a dull old town without its
baseball, and unless something is
done mighty soon it looks as though
the great summer pastime will be a
thing of the past in Anyox.
[May  31st   Last  Day   For
Renewing Licences
Prospectors and owners of mineral claims, don't forget that Tuesday
May 3tst. is the last day for renewing Free Miner's Licences.
The evening of May 23rd. promises to be a big event at the Alice
Arm Hotel. The celebrated Moose
orchestra and a large gathering of
Anyox folk will be present, and the
gathering will undoubtedly be
|iwelled by Alice Arm dancers.

The closing down of two of Anaconda's big copper properties has
been hailed in mining circles as an
omen of good cheer.
Last year the Cuban government
out out 20 per cent of its sugar production. There was wasteful over
production and raw sugar was selling below aotual cost of production.
The beet sugar producers were
protected in various countries
against unremunerative prices and
they did uot have to cut down production to secure a living wage.
Cuban industry is as. dependent on
sugar as British industry is dependent on coal or Japan's industry is
dependent on silk. To allow sugar
to be produced and sold at less than
cost spelt ruin and Cuba consequently reduced its output from
5,500,000 tons to 4,500,000 tons.
That at once raised the price of
raw sugar over 33 per cent and
Cuban industry was saved.
Fossil economics may condemn
this curtailment of production to
restore normal prices as an attack
on "the law of supply and demand"
But whatever that law may mean
it certainly was never meant to
compel producers to sell at less than
actual cost. Continuous over production spells economic suicide.
The cure for it is curtailment of
production to meet demand.
Consumers of sugar, cotton,
copper, silver and wheat would
gladly see a big surplus of these
commodities warehoused to enable
them to buy at below the cost of
production. But piling up an mi*
. salable surplus means a vast waste
of capital, human energy and uneconomic price levels.
For centuries England worked
her tin mines to the limit to supply
tin to the world at 2 cents a pound.
For two or three thousand years
British tin miners never received a
living wage. Millions of tons were
mined and sold for les* than £8 ii
ton. Five million tons at £8 aton
meant .-£40,000,000. The same
five million tons could now be sold
for £1,500,000,000.
In these figures are visualized
the stupendous economic loss which
England has suffered by failure to
conserve'its tin resources.
America has been exploiting its
oopper resources for forty years
and selling the red metal at far
below its economic value, just as it
has been exploiting its forest resources and selling the output at
below its marginal value.
The same process has gone on in
cotton, corn and wheat. Everywhere there has been over-production, unremunerative wages   and
Ladysmith Smelter Will
Expand When Tonnage
Now that the flurry about the
Ladysmith smelter has quieted
down, it is announced that it is uot
the intention to make any immediate move towards the erection of a
custom or the refitting of the
smelter until ore supplies are adequate, enough to justify the undertaking. In the meantime, the receiving, weighing and sampling
devices at Ladysmith will be refitted and mine operators will be able
to sell their product on the basis of
a ten-day settlementafter sampling
These concentrates and ore will be
treated in England at the works of
the British Metals Corporation,
which is associated with the Ladysmith Smelting Syndicate, principles of which are Herbert Carmichael and H. B. Thomson.
The mining company, which is
being formed as a subsidiary to the
smelter company, will proceed with
the acquisition of properties, and
as a start have taken over the Tyee
and Lenora mines on Vancouver

Aggregate Value of $920,919,628
The sudstantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
nuures whioh show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all yearfrto 1895, inclusive $94 547 241; forfive years, 1896 1900, $57,607,967; for fivja years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years-

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prOspeoting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees. ,
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing suoh properties, security of whioh is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon whioh development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey

Ice Cap in Alaska Fast
Timber is fast taking the plaoe
of ioe along the coast of Alaska,
aocording to John P. Forde, Dominion government engineer,
who reoently oonducted an investigation there for the Ottawa authorities.
Glaoial ice caps are receding all
along the ooastof Alaska, says Mr.
Forde. They are going baok, he
contends at the rate of of 100 feet a
year, and the surprising feature is
that within ten years from the uu-
covering of the terrain by the recession of the ice, a crop of Sitka
spruce sprang up.
Of special interest to Canada in
this recession of the glaciers is the
prospect that steamers will eventually become independent of Skag-
way as a route into Canadian ter
ritory and the possibility that a
new seaport on Canadian soil may
be created. At the present time
all traffic for the Yukon passes
through Alaskan territory.
