Will Hold Anyox Community League Annual
Meeting Next Month
On the 27th. day of February,
the Annual General Meeting of the
League will be called to hear the
report of the President on last year's
activities; to nominate a council to
carry on the business of the league
in the coming year.
It is very essential that if Anyox
is to be made a better place in which
to live, and the people, especially
the children, are to be made happier
thereby, that every public spirited
citizen of Anyox, should be present
at this General Meeting.
The interest you show at the General Meeting in the nomination of a
Council that will employ their in-'
itiative and energy in making Anyox
a little more attractive, or in giving
you wider or better recreation facilities, will bring you big dividends
in increased hours of enjoyment.
You will be able to find among
your fellow workers, men who have
the necessary qualifications, in
which case nominate them, work
for them and with them, and see
that your candidate gets in.
By all indications the General
Meeting is going to be the largest
attended meeting that has ever been
held in Anyox. It is hoped all of
the 400 members of the League will
turn out en masse to support their
respective Candidates, so plan to
|v be there early and insure a seat for
yourself.
Do not rely on your neighbor's
neighbor to nominate the Council
for you, for your neighbor's neighbor may do the same thing. Your
interest in the nomination of the
new Council is the best encouragement you can give those men, who
in the succeeding year will represent
your interests.
New Ore Body At Esperanza Mine
Carries Phenominal High Gold Values
Anyox Conservatives Will
Hold  Meeting
The Anyox Conservative Association will hold a public meeting in
Recreation Hall, Wednesday January 30th. at 8 p. in. Officers for
the year will be elected. Ladies
are particularly invited.
Are Considering Change of
League Secretary
The last two meetings of the A.
|C. L. Council have had under consideration a change in the secretaryship. For a report of the proceedings our readers are referred to the
hosted copies of minutes of the
proceedings.
Startling results from the ore
samples recently sent out for assaying from the Esperanza mine were
received during the week. The
values were much greater than was
expected, the ore carrying considerable gold.
Three samples taken from No. 7
tunnel across a width of 30 feet
gave the following returns: No. 1
sample, $9.00 gold and 62 ozs. silver per ton. No. 3, $111.25 gold,
$10.00 silver and 50c lead. No. 4,
12.88 ozs. gold and 17.5 ozs. silver.
No. 2 was a picked sample and gold
values were considerably higher
than any of the above mentioned.
A sample taken from No. 1 tunnel gave values of $5.00 gold and
280 ozs. silver per ton. The No. 1
tunnel is at an higher elevation than
No. 7 and is 1800 feet distant.
This is one of the most important
phases of development work, as it
shows that the rich ore is not confined to one small area but is spread
over considerable ground.
When the ore body was cut
through in No. 7 tunnel an ande-
site dyke was encountered. This is
now being penetrated, and when it
has been accomplished, still richer
ore is expected to be discovered.
Encouraged by the results of
development work for the past six
months a bond has been taken on
the property adjoining the Esperanza on the south. This property
comprises three claims and a fraction: the Sock, Midway, Midway
No. 1, and Midway Fraction. It
is owned by Ralph Ingraham of
Alice Arm and Geo. Pratt of
Tacoma. It is believed that the ore
bodies of the Esperanza extend into the Midway ground.
Indications are that the Esperanza will eventually become a producer of both high grade and milling ore of considerable proportions
in the near future. Present plans
are for the further development of
the property. . Th« oompany have
been  very  conservative   in   their
statements regarding results. They
are carrying on a systematic plan
of development work, that is sure
ly getting results, which will ultimately call for a considerable
expansion of operations.
The Esperanza is a unique mine
in many respects. It was the first
mining property staked in the Alice
Arm district, being located 1903 by
the late Frank Roundy. It has
changed hands several times, each
owner taking out some high grade
ore and realizing on his investment.
Its ores carry tungsten, silver, gold
and lead. First prizes have been
taken for tungsten ore on several
occasions at Vancouver, and prizes
have also been taken for silver ores.
It is the belief of those who
know the property best that the
ore already taken from the mine
by the various owners is only a
fraction of what remains, and that
the Esperanza hill will, when dev
elopment work is extended prove a
rich producer.
Anyox Scouts Hold Very
Interesting Meetings
At a Court of Honor held in the
home of Patrol Leader Armstrong,
it was decided to try and hold a
Summer Camp at Alice Arm.
The Leaders after dealing with
other troop matters passed a vote
of thanks to Mrs. Armstrong for
her kindness in not only allowing
them to hold the meeting in her
home but also for providing refreshments.
At a recent Scout meeting, Mr.
James Donaldson gave the Scouts
a talk during the Camp Fire period
and the boys thoroughly enjoyed it.
He was requested to again address
them in the near future. The theme
of his address was: the Works of
Chas. Dickens.
Anyox Cubs are making wonderful progress, they have lately lost
their "A. C. Master" Ted Kergin.
He is very much missed and the
boys wish him good luck and hope
that one day he will again come to
the Council Rock.
Prize Awarded For Slogan
The A. C. L. Council has awarded the slogan prize of $5 to Mrs.
Etheridge .for "Sponsors Sport,
Study, and Servia."

"Those who win in speculation
do not make a success of it because
they take a chance. They win
because before they take a chance
they use every human power to
eliminate risk. Men of large financial means, men who make a success of speculation, lay in their
lines of stocks when prices are low
and the risks are small. Strangely
enough, the general public usually
thinks that at such times the risks
are very great. In reality they
make a great deal of money and
they make it, not becuse they
assume great risks, but because
they waited to buy until prices were
so low that they could buy almost
without risk. He who would win
in the stock market—may win
once by taking a chance. But the
consistent winners are not those
who merely take a chance, but
those who in assuming a risk, first
eliminate chance so far as is humanly possible."—R. W. McNeel
in "Beating the Stock Market."
Consolidated Manager
Inspects Smelters
The recent departure for Europe
of Mr. Blaylock, general manager
of the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company for the purpose
of inspecting the latest developments
in smelters, is taken to foreshadow
the early construction of another
smelter somewhere on the coast.
Erection of such a plant would be a
great stimulus to the copper properties through the western section of
the province, since it would bring
about more rapid progress towards
actual operation of the various copper mines.—Western Tribune.
Much Topographical Survey
The Canadian Topographical Survey and the Royal Canadian Air
Force made aerial photos for survey purposes of 53,000 square miles
in 1928.
Big Amount Developed
Ore On Sabakwe
It is conservatively estimated
that the Sebakwe property, adjoining B. C. Silver and on an extension of the Premier porphyry
zone in which the rich gold-silver
ore that characterizes that area is
formed, has now put in sight at
least $1,750,000 worth of high grade
milling ore.
Mining engineers who have visited Sebakwe recently, are inclined
to give it at least equal rating with
B. C. Silver on the basis of present
showings, and there are some who
consider it second only to the Premier in economic importance among
the properties of the Salmon River
Valley. Estimates of the value of
indicated ore on Sebakwe run From1
$1,500,000 to more than double that
amount.

% stepping-stone to success.
"Joseph, if your father could
save a dollar a week for four weeks.
what would he then have? '
"A phonograph, a new suit a
refrigerator and a set of furniture."
"Take my advice and never flirt
with married women." Why,
because their husbands might shoot
you?" "No, because their husbands
might die."
A survey of current publications

Ample Power Available
At Silverado
Stewart News
The power plant at the Marmot
River, built to furnish power to the
Prosperity, Porter-Idaho and Silverado, has been connected up with
the Silverado over a 3^ mile transmission line.
Ample power will now be available
for the driving of the 1000 foot tunnel which is now in nearly half
way to the first of the veins to be
tapped. It is possible that ore may
be struck before reaching this vein
as it is known that mineralization
occurs along the contact of the
shear zone in which the veins lie.
Fifteen men are employed working three shifts a day. The camp
is fully equipped, and at night the
blaze of electric lights high up on
the mountain shine forth and verify
the activity of Stewart's front door
mine.
Consolidated Co. Will Open
Assay Office In Rupert
Ceo. W. Dunn, one of the old-
timers of the southern interior

Bi-Lingual"Chanty"
Sea Discovered
RALPH CONNOR
Ralph Connor, the well known
Canadian novelist, collected recently from a half-breed voyageur in
the Canadian Northwest a highly
interesting folksong which will be
sung at the Vancouver Sea Music
Festival next January by Ulysse
Paquin, of Montreal. This song
is half French, half English, the
first part being the story of a habitant Colin while the chorus is an
English sea chanty, "Blow ye
winds of morning". This bi-ling-
ual song appears to have been popular many years ago at a time
when white pine was exported in
large quantities on the old sailing
ships from Quebec which carried
overseas the logs rafted down the
St. Lawrence from the Ottawa
River. The word 'chanty' is considered by some authorities as connected with the 'shanties' of the
Quebec lumberjacks who frequently were sailors as well as woodsmen and always sang at their
work. According to Ralph Connor,
the half-breed or metis from whom
he recorded this song was a handsome chap with beautiful voice and
manners and was a first-class
canoeman. A number of purely
French Canadian chanteys as well
will be sung by Ulysse Paquin, at
Vancouver, as the intention is to
make this Sea Music Festival at
Canadian as possible.

"You don't have to sell the idea

Stuber, well known sporting writer
who attended the recent banquet in

Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies Visit Lake
of the Hanging Glaciers in British Columbia
Hundreds of lovers of the great
outdoors have joined the
Trail Riders of the Canadian
Rockies, an organization of poets,
novelists, scientists, educators, artists, Indian chiefs, cowboys, nature lovers in general, and those
who wish to perpetuate ancient
trails in the Canadian Rockies and
get the grand kick of a wonder
ful horseback ride through the
Canadian Rockies to scenic wonders which have been viewed by a
mere handful. John Murray Gibbon, of Montreal, first organized
this great ride, which this year
starter* August 2, for the Lake
of the Hanging Glaciers, from
Banff and Lake Windermere, B.C.
Each year it has bees bigger and
better and the membership now
exceeds a thousand, many of whom
have won the gold and enamel
button signifying that they have
ridden at least fifteen hundred
miles. Of the hundred so qualifying, 23 are ladies. Three of the
girl-members who joined up with
the main party this year on the
start for the Lake had already
covered upwards of 200 miles of
mountain trails.
The Lake of the Ranging
Glaciers, about 7,500 feet above
level, in the Selkirk Range,
was discovered about 20 years ago,
but is still as wild as ever. Its
name gives some idea of its spectacular appearance, which is that
of an immense cirque, with eight
glaciers forming a morraine which
drops off sheer in an ice wall
nearly 300 feet higher than the
lake itself. From this wall icebergs are falling continually, and
forming a miniature Arctic sea
in the heart of the mountains.
Surrounded as it is by jagged
Alpine peaks, many of which exceed 11,000 feet in height, this
district has challenged the ambition of many Alpine climbers.

Tuesday.  Will Have
Busy Session
The Seventeenth Parliament of
British Columbia, which met on
Tuesday with new leaders, new
back benchers and new ideas, will
have to grapple with a formidable
array of new problems besides the
many old ones which bob up regularly every year.
The ability of Premier Tolmie to
hold his own counsel, already
demonstrated in his Cabinet-mak-
ingdays, has increased, if anything,
in office, and what his government
intends to do about most things so
far as is the Cabinet's own private
business. On the other hand, the
matters which the cabinet will
have to do something about before
it adjourns the House or some of
them at any rate stand out clearly.
At this time eight major questions face the House, apart from
many minor ones, and an unknown
quantity of those things which always develop during a session
without any advance warning. The
major problems are: i
1. The future of the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway.
2. The fiscal policy of the province.
3. The handling of the government liquor business.
4. Land settlement, including
the future of the Snnias and South
Okanagan reclamation schemes.
5. Agricultural marketing.
6. Control of public utilities.
7. Provision of money to carry
on extensive road building.
8. The fixing of timber royalties
and forest conservation.
T. D. Puttallo Is Elected
Liberal Leader
T. D. Pattullo, member for Prince
Rupert and minister of lands in the
MacLean government, was on Monday chosen leader of the Liberals in
the legislature. The choice was
made by the executive of the British
Columbia Association, in session at
Vancouver.
The choice, it is considered, was
the only practical one, as the former
minister was by far the most outstanding figure among the opposition members. He was a minister all the time the Liberals were in
power following the defeat of the
Bowser Government in 1916, until
the defeat of the Liberal party last
year.
Mr. Pattullo's appointment was
made on motion of Hon. Ian Mackenzie, seconded by Hon. A. M.
Manson. Executive appointed a
committee of six to meet the committee from members-elect who had
conferred Saturday. These committees returned and reported Mr.
Pattullo was their unanimous choice.
About 80 attended the  executive
