Fred Martinson Meets
Death By Drowning
In Bay
A fatal accident occurred at Alice
Arm on the night of Tuesday April
3rd. when Fred Martinson, a resident of the camp for 12 years met
his death by drowning at the logging camp operated by Al. Falconer
about three miles down the inlet.
Deceased arose from his bed during the middle of the night, at high
tide period in order to push off some
logs that were stranded on the
shore. That was the last seen of
him alivei and his body was discovered on the beach at an early hour
the following morning.
An examination showed that the
bridge of his nose had been punctured between the eyes, and it is
thought that he had slipped and
that a pointed snag or rock had
rendered him unconscious, and later
the water covered him.
Constable Wm. Smith of" Anyox
was at Once notified and he arrived
* accompanied by Government Agent
R. M. McGusty/The latter held
an inquest the"3ame afternoon, and
after the jury had listened to all
available evidence, a verdict of
death by accidental drowning was
brought in.
Those serving on the jury, were:
H. R. Fowler, (foreman)^ J. A.
Anderson, J. Trinder, G. Anderson,
A. Beaudin and J. Wells.
The body was taken to Anyox,
where arrangements have been
made to hold the funeral this afternoon at 1.30p.m. Rev. C. D. Clarke
officiating. /
Deceased was a native of Sweden,
but had spent a large part of his
life in Canada, and was a naturaliz.
ed British subject. He was 42
years of age, and so far his only
known relative is a brother, C. M.
Martinson of Tacoma, Washington.
The late Fred Martinson was a
fine type of citizen. He was of
splendid physique, and in his veins
ran the blood of the pioneer, a type
of man to whom this last great
west owes so much. He came to
Alice Arm in 1916 and followed the
occupation of miner and rock man.
He was in partnership with Neil
Forbes on many contracts and was
one of the best miners and rock
men on the coast.
He leaves a host of friends to
mourn his loss, not only in Alice
Arm but in every camp and town in
the' north, who will deplore the
tragic passing of their one-time
Anyox Will Hold League
Of Nations Meeting
April 23rd.
In an effort to familiarize the
people of Canada with the great
work now being done by the League
of Nations, it has been decided to
carry out a big drive from one end
of the country to the other. The
date set on which the residents of
Anyox are expected to line up is the
23rd. of April. At a meeting of
sympathizers held this week in the
basement of the United Church, it
was unanimously decided to take
part in the great goodwill campaign,
and if possible, an effort is to be
made to bring in some outside
speaker familiar with the .work already accomplished by the League.
It was also suggested that a circular letter be addressed to every
church and organization in the camp
asking their co-operation in making
the campaign, as far as Anyox is
concerned, the success it deserves.

Quarterly Dividend By
Granby Co.
A dividend of $1.25 a share on
the company's 432,262 shares of
common stock has been announced
by the Granby Consolidated Mining
Smelting & Power Co. Ltd. This
is the quarterly dividend and means
a distribution of $530,322. This
makes a total disbursement to date
of $11,558,366.
In spite of falling prices of copper
last year, which niade tough going
for many copper companies, Granby
earned nearly $7 a share, and it is
believed regular dividends that were
suspended for a time will now be in
order again.

Esperanza   Mine   Has
Been Producer From
Grass Roots
The forming of the Esperanza
Mining Co. marks another epoch
in the history of this picturesque
property. It was staked in 1903
by the late Frank Roundy and associates, who took out considerable
high grade ore. Pedro Salinas
and his brother Baldereno next
secured it by a fluke for $200 at
a SheriflVs sale iu Prinoe Rupert.
They also took out considerable
high grade ore; on one shoot alone
they mined $8,000 worth in six
weeks. Altogether they mined
$26,000 worth of high grade ore
and finally sold the property for
$15,000 oash.
Vancouver interests purohased
the property from Pedro Salinas.
They worked it for a few years,
and were also fortunate in locating
considerable ore. The property
was then sold to an Anyox Syndi.
oate, who later included Prinne
Rupert capital.
Those who are acquainted with
the property are confident that .he
main ore body has not yet been
found, but with the installation of
a compressor plant, whioh will
expediate development work, it is
anticipated that a big tonnage of
ore both high grade and milling,
will shortly be developed. So far,
mining has been only carried on at
shallow depths.
Canon W. F. Rushbrook Has
Written Book on North
Canon W. F. Rushbrook of the
Mission Boat "Northern Cross"
has written a book entitled "The
Trollers." It deals with the cosmopolitan life of the northern fishing banks, and its publication is
expected sometime during the year.
Canon Rushbrook is an authority
on the experiences of the pioneer
fisher-rancher folk of the northern
coast, and "The Trollers" will
probably be followed by another
book at a later date.

Red Bluff Property Will
Be Developed This
The Red Bluff group, situated
on Red Bluff mountain, about 4£
miles from Alice Arm will be developed as soon as necessary plans
have been made. How much development work will be undertaken
this year has not yet been determined.
The Red Bluff oonsists of five
olaims, four of which have been
crown granted, aud is owned by
Mr. J. N, McPhee of Butedale, who
was one of the original owners.
The Red Bluff has always been
considered a promising property.
No large amount of development
work has been done, but development work undertaken this year
will probably determine the existence of considerable ore bodies.
It is ideally looated for cheap
mining and milling being only \\
miles from tide water.
Following is the report of Mr. R.
G. MoConnel, who examined the
property on behalf of the Geological Department of Dominion Government, some years ago.
"Looking up the wide valley of
the Kitsault River from the head
of Alioe Arm, a red patch shows
prominently on the face of a mountain north of the river about 4i
miles. A number of olaims have
been staked on the red area and
grouped together under the name
of Red Bluff group.
"A Short visit to the showing
was made in company with Mr.
Young, one of the owners, but as
little development work had been
done, observation was limited to
the general surface features.
"A rough trail leading up the
valley of the Kitsault for some distance, then up a tributary stream
from the north has been brushed
out of the foot of the Red Bluff.
"The rook in the neighborhood of
the showing consist mostly of fine
and medium-textured, greenish,
tufaceous sandstones alternating
in places with bands of finer grained, dark argillaceous rooks. The
tufaceous sandstones ocour in wide,
practically massive bands, showing
little stratification, they are not
much altered and consist mainly
of rounded and angular feldspar
grains and fragments of glass and
voloanio rooks.
"The mineralized area  is   very
large, fully a thousand   feet   in
width   and traceable for a  long
distance up the steep slopes of the

One blow of the hammer
doesn't build a house. One
smashing advertisement doesn't
build a business. It merely does
its share. Each advertisement
you publish aims to stimulate the
day's trading. And each day's
job, well done, helps to strengthen
the foundation of the business for
tomorrow and all the future.
Each advertisement gains strength
from the previous record. Each
advertisement in its turn, gives
strength to the future record. But
to get these benefits advertising
must keep on steadily as you expect the business to keep on. To
weaken in the program because a
few advertisements don't create a
reputation equal to that of a store
which has been building prestige
steadily year after year would be
as foolish as to stop work on a
house because the first blow of
the hammer didn't do the whole
job, from cellar floor to top chimney brick. The quitter rarely
wins a race. "Keeping everlastingly at it," in the words of one of
the most famous advertising slogans,
"brings success."
League of Nations Ideals
To Be Taught In
This is the fifth article written
by Rev. C. D. Clarke of Anyox in
regard' to the work of the League
of Nations Society.
World peace depends not only
upon an informed public opinion
today but upon instilling ideals
of peace in the mind of the rising
generation. The mind of youth
presents the most fertile soil in
whioh can be sown the seeds of
peace. The whole future of the
world depends upon the preparation
that is made today. The League
of Nations realizes this and two
years ago appointed a sub-committee for the instruction of youth
in the work and ideals of the
League of Nations. This committee under the able chairmanship
of Prof. Gilbert Murray of Britain
is endeavouring to have subjects
placed in the curriculum of the
schools of the member states.
In the "Bulletin" of July last
Prof. Mack Eastman gave a report
of what has been done in the various nations in teaching the League
at School. The countries report
ing definite progress in this con
neotion, are, Britain, Franoe,
Japan, Germany, Austria, Greece,
Lithuania, ltoumania, Siain, Bel
gium, Australia and New Zealand
Austria and Belgium are the most
influential leaders in the movement. Concerning Canada Prof.
Eastman says "I should be happy
to believe that all our Canadian
educational authorities were as
deeply and officially interested as
the New Zealand and Australian
authorities declare themselves to
he". ■     -
Iii Canada progress has been
made. The League of Nations
Society has the matter in hand and
has approached the departments of
Education with regard to having
the League brought before the
pupils. Besides this, a small book
"A New world or the League of
Nations" for use in schools has
been prepared. A recent Bulletin
uarries the following report;-
"Prince Edward Island has the
matter under consideration, Nova
Sootia and Manitoba are placing
the hook on the course of study
New Brunswick and Ontario are
inserting chapters on the League
in text books on Civics and History.
Saskatchewan has been giving instruction on the League. Alberta
plans to place the book iu the
hands of principals and teachers
of history. British Columbia is
inclined to authorize the use of the
book and will probably furnish free
copies to matriculation students"
To encourage the study of world
peace many interested organizations have offered prizes for essays.
The city of Viotoria is a notable
example. A year or so ago 1500
essays were written on the Subjeot:
"The Years Progress toward World
Peace." The essays were written
without notes during a regular
session in the school room during
the spring term. The two best
essays in each grade were read by
the writers before a publio audience. Medals were awarded.
This competition is an annual
The Peace essay competition conducted by the Anyox P. T. A. last
year was similar to that of Victoria.
The usual competition calls forth
essays from those who feel inclined
to enter but the advantage of such
a competition as the P. T. A. sponsored last year is that every pupil
in the specified grades write an
essay ou the subject and in doing
so gains some knowledge of the
Through the activities of the
League of Nations Society it is
hoped to have this important subject included in the curriculum of
the sohool systems throughout the
world so that the rising generation
may be prepared to advance the
cause of world peace.

-URING the mediaeval period two neighboring towns in
'the Old Country had long a rivalry as to
which brewed the best beer. During a dispute one day in
early spring, between two brew-masters, one from each of
the towns in question, it was claimed by one that the Beer
brewed by the other lacked strength. To settle the dispute,
the following test was proposed: Each brew-master was to
consume a gigantic tankard of the beer brewed by his
opponent, after which he was to stand on one leg and thread
a needle. The loser claimed that a goat that had butted in
through the circle of men surrounding the opponents was
responsible for his downfall. The winner laughingly replied: ''It was the Bock
(German word for goat) in the beer." From that time it became customary to brew a
special dark beer called "BOCK BEER" and place it on sale in the Spring of each year.
may be obtained on Saturday, April 7th, 1928, and the safter until the limited supply
is gone, from the Government Liquor Stores, in bottles, or on draught in any licensed
place at the same price as regular beer.
Bock Beer is the BREWERS' TREAT, an exceptional brew, of high-grade Beer and
aged (lagered) for an unusually long period. It is a very wholesome and nutritious
beverage, the highest achievement of the skilled Brew-master. Order early to make
sure of a supply. Bock Beer, brewed by the Vancouver Breweries
Limited, Westminster Brewery Limited, Rainier Brewing Company
of Canada Limited, Silver Spring Breweries Limited, and Victoria-
Phoenix Brewing Co. Limited is guaranteed to be absolutely pure
beer.    Order a case to your home for Easter.

mountain. The rooks are fractured
and the pyrite oxidized to a greater depth than usual, and no large
muss of sulphides is exposed on the
surface. Copper carbonates in
small quantities occur at a number
of points and a specimen consisting
mostly of white pyrite in a silice
ous gangue contained small specks
of bornite. Some pyrargyrite in
small grains was also found with
gyrite in one exposure. This mineral does not occur, or at least has
not been found, in other large iron
croppings of the distriot.
The economic importance of this
large puritized area is uncertain
It contains some copper, and while
the small amount of surface work
which has been done, has not exposed it in commercial quantities,
the prospects warrant further exploration. The presence of the
rich silver mineral pyrargrite.even
iu small quantities is important.
