Homestake Mine
To Operate
Property Has Wonderful
, TheHomestake Mining Company
of Vancouver will commence work
on their property at the Kitsault
Glaoier in a few days. Major R
F, Criohton and Mr. T. Taverner
arrived in Alioe Arm from Vancouver on Thursday accompanied
by four men, and left yesterday for
the property. Major Criohton
states that ten men will be at
present employed, and that this
number will be increased at an
early date. Present work will consist of fixing the camp, and repairing the trail to the property.
Development of the property
will be pushed with all possible
speed this summer, and work will
consist of extending the No. 1 tunnel, in whioh ore was encountered
in the fall of 1921 when the last
work was done. As soon as, the
ore body is cut through, work on
No's two and three tunnels will be
commenced, and a fourth tunnel
started. It is possible that the
work' will be done by contract. - ■;
The Homestake property is one
ofthe most promising properties
in thedistrict, large bodies of ore
showing on the surface, and it is
anticipated, that development work
will prove up an enormous tonnage.
The ore carries gold, copper and
Alice Arm Liquor Store
Will Open Next Friday
• It< is expeoted that the government liquor store at Alice Arm will
be open for business on Friday next.
Mr. Chas. E. Hutchison, of Anyox

Mr. Hutchison arrived in Alice
Arm oil Thursday, and announced
that a liquor shipment Would be in
on Monday. The store will bo
located in the building formerly
occupied by Mr. S. Dumas, directly
opposite the Kitsault House. The
neoessary fixture's will,be installed
next week, in preparation for the
grand opening on Friday.
Simpson called the attention of the
Council to what he considered the
filthy nature of the streets, and
moved that the,Seoretary be instructed to approach the proper
officials and have the streets washed
down. Considerable discussion
was devoted to the Dominion Day
If those who pine would whistle,
If those who sigh would laugh,
The rose would outgrow the thistle,
The wheat would outrun the chaff.
Esperanza Steadily
Mining High Grade
The work of taking out ore at
the Esperanza mine is steadily
proceeding. Anew ore vein was
encountered last week in the drift
above the Baldy tunnel, and is on
the opposite side of the 30-ft. dyke
which cuts through the oountry.
The.vein haB widened out*to 12
inohes of solid ore, and the ore is all
high grade, plates of native silver
have been found on the foot wall,
and the balance of ore is composed
of ruby silver, and argentite.' The
ore also carries some zinc. Development work is also being carried
on in the Baldy tunnel, with a view
of encountering ore in the vicinity,
of the dyke. Work of stoping
ore will be undertaken next week,
arid more men will be put on.
New Ore Vein Found
on the Lone Maid
Work on the tunnel of the Lone
Maid property has been discontinued for the present, and work on
surface showings is now being
done. During the week, a new ore
vein was discovered and stripped
for a distance of 200 feet. The
vein is in places three feet wide,
and is well mineralized, samples of
which will be assayed. The vein
runs east and West, and after more
surface work has been done,
it is anticipated that a tunnel will
be driven to obtain depth.   .
Anyox Sport

Tuesday night, the Smelter football
team beat the Elks eleven by the
soore of three goals to one. Both
teams worked hard, but the
Smelter forwards shooting ability

With the completion of the new
concentrating mill, dam and hydroelectric plant at Anyox by the
Granby Company, they will be
able to satisfactorily treat any kind
of copper or silver ore, and will also
be able to cut their operating expenses considerably, through Ihe
use of hydro-electric the year round.
With the completion of these works
the Granby Co. will-possess anup-
to-date plant, well managed and
staffed and working smoothly as a
clock. All that is needed to keep
the plant operating indefinitely is
ore tonnage, and this, the company
is endeavoring to secure. Field
engineers are busily engaged in
examining properties throughout
the whole north, and there is no
doubt that the Granby Co. will
eventually develop several mining
properties from the prospecting
stage to big producers of ore in the
future. They are continually
bonding new properties, and will
undoubtedly continue to dp so
until ore tonnages for smelter and
concentrator are assured for a good
number of years. In addition to
the ore tonnage from these company mines must be taken into consideration the increasing volume of
custom ore which will be handled
at Anyox, as soon as properties
are developed to the shipping stage,
The Anyox plant is on tide water,
It is situated in the centre of which
is perhaps the largest and richest
undeveloped mineral country in the
world. Ores can be shipped
there by water from all over the-
northern coast from Princess Royal
Island to Alaska, and can also be
brought from the interior to tide
water over the C. N. Railway.
Anyox smelter does not have to
depend on the Hidden Creek Mine
ore for its existence. It has an empire to draw on for its supplies, and
it is likely that the big plant will be
operating and producing more metal than it is now, long after the
youngest of us have passed through
the pearly gates.
The Copper
Financial and Market News gathered
by private direot wires from the
world's market centres by
Burdick, Logan & Company, Limited
737, Granville Street,
Vancouver, B. C.
Special to the Herald
New York—Copper market has
every appearance pf having struck
bottom, and price trend again seems
upward. Large producers seem to
have seen the foolishness of offering
down upon a weak market, and most
of them are holding at 15 cents delivered or out of the market. Saturday
it was impossible to buy copper under
14 7-8 cents delivered, 'and this week it
was difficult to buy under 15 cents,
Last week) a considerable tonnage of
copper changed hands at 113-4 cents a
pound delivered, with some of the
farthest sighted in the industry doing
the buying. Large consumers were
about to place orders for a considerable tonnage of copper two weeks ago
when the price dropped to around
151-4 cents and then began to recover.
They waited a few days to see what
would be the trend of the stock market
and European political conditions,
The large producers became impatient
and again followed down oh independ
ents, breaking the market again and
scaring purchasers.
Consumers Think Bottom
Consumers are again about to enter
the mai'ket with large orders for third
quarter * shipment, and some with
orders for last quarter. Again,' they
believe that bottom has been struck in
price. They think that large producers have about learnt their lesson and
will, not offer the market down further,
but they intend to wait a few days
longer to see for certain. With renewed buying, price should recover to
151-2 cents rather quickly, and then
slowly rise to 16 cents.
Many consumers and several producers feel that a price of 16 cents is all
that the industry can bear without
over production until European consumption is much higher than it has
been during the last few months.'
The trouble with copper is that pro
ducers cannot stand prosperity. They
all talked about labor shortage this
spring, and each one increased mine
output 50 to 100 per cent.
The danger in copper is, and has
been since the war ended, that there
will be too great a production of copper,' and not that there will be too
little. The only way that output can
be controlled in an industry so disjointed, as is copper at the present
time, is for price to stay at such level
that profit will not induce overproduction.
German demand for American copper shows little prospect of exceeding
2500 tons a month. Only a fourth as
much as last year. The government
has stopped buying, and the big electrical trusts are using little copper and
more aluminum.

Build to Stewart
Mr. G. W. Mason, of Prince George,
is in receipt of a letter from a friend in
the Peace Biver region, who appears
to be in touch with railway work in
that part of the province.
He writes in part;
"I wonder if you people of Prince
George know just what is happening
in railway circles to the north of your
city. A party left Spirit Biver last
week for the purpose of making a rec-
onnaisance of a direct route from the
Spirit Biver to Stewart, on the Pacific
Coast. It is evident the C. P. B.
intend to take up their option on the
E. D. & B. 0. Bailway at the proper
time. The engineers now making the
reoonnaisance represent the 0. P. B.
It would appear that the new route
will follow the Peace Biver to Pindlay
Forks, thence up the Omineco Biver,
thence in a north-westerly direction,
tapping the Groundhog country, and
through to Stewart."-Prince- Bupert
Will Survey Iron Ore Deposits
A survey of the iron ore resources of
the province is being completed by Dr..
G. A. Young, of the Dominion Geological Survey. Hon. William Sloan,
minister of mines, has undertaken to
settle the question of whether or not
there is sufficient ore in B. C. to warrant the establishment of an iron and
steel industry.

He is the only man to hold a record
of 700 runs against the Old Man's
Home of Aberdeen. During the
English tour of New Zealand,
Chapman was the man that
brought home the ashes; how he
has to take them out-every morning., He should be in good shape
to play again, as each morning,
when most of us are asleep, namely,
5 a.m. one can see Harry tearing
up the Mine road, or swimming
over to Granby Point, and he has
brought down his tonnage considerably. The first Cricket Meeting
will be held under the Store, on
Friday. June 29th.
British Columbia is to have a pottery industry, if the plans of the
departments of industry and education
work out satisfactorily. Experiments
with clays are being carried out and at
the summer schools this year the study
of ceramics will betaken up.

Elk's Win on Monday from
Smelter Team
The Elks again romped home,
when they played the badly crippled Smelter team last Monday,
winning with a score of 18-1., At'
no time during the seven innings
did they appear to be in any danger. With Fitzpatriok on the
mound and Cody doing the receiving the Elks played their steadiest
game of the season. The Smelter
fought gamely against a shutout
and were successful when Curly
McKeown got to first on a nioe
bunt, stole secoiid and third and
came home oii a hit. Lee, who did
the pitching for the Smelter was
handicapped with a sore arm, and
was unable to do himself justice.
The catch of Fred Brown, who
picked one out of the azure, was
the sensation of the game, although
Cy. Greenwell nearly equalled him
in a nice fly that should have
made a hit in any league.
The Smelter are strengthening
their team, and expect to give the
fans some real A-l ball, starting
Monday, June 25th, when they
will usher out Babe Fortin, ,who is
one of the cleverest pitchers in the
province. Fortin has the honor of
pitching in the B. C. finals and
should be an acquisition to the
Smelter team.
Intermediates Going Strong
Intermediate baseball got anoth
er boost, when the. Smelter Inters,
trimmed Salmon's hard hitting
Elks by the score of 5-3. Cheshire
for the Elks pjtqhed yery^ creditable ball, and the support given
him by Nickerson; MoDougall and
Jtpy, plus the fielding of Waterman, was a great help, Fitzpatriok ofthe Elks was a little wild,
and although he was very consistent with the bat, 'was unable to
deliver the bacon. For the Elks,
Salmon and Smith played a stellar
game. Salmon is about ripe for
the seniors and with a little, practice should be about the first
Backer in town.    ,
The High School, now lead the
league, but their stay is only tern?
porary as both the Smelter and
Elks are after their scalp. The
boys playing intermediate, also the
old married men, are having a nice
time, putting lots of pep into, their
Work and taking the game serious-
,ly.    ; '
There has been a great upheaval
in the Elks baseball team. Baby
Whittaker wishes to resign that
aggregation, so that he can rally
a bunch of cricketers around his
banner to give Mr. Chapman,,a
little opposition. However, on
account of Fred's delicate condition
and the fact that he cannot trace
his ancestry back to* the blue
bipod of Old England, he has been
at last, persuaded to still be the big
man of the Elks.
"Willie," said his mother, "I must
insist that you stop shooting. craps—
those poor little things .have just as
much right to live as you have. .

in purity—
That's why Cascade Beer has for 35 years
been British Columbia's favorite health
beverage. No expense has been spared to
ensure purity. It has cost a million dollars to build a plarit to accomplish this.
But after testing Cascade Beer, you agree
that it has been worth it.!
