Esperanza Has Tungsten
Ore Carrying 39 Per
Cent Metal
Ore Is Worth S351.00 Per
The Esperanza mine, which has
become well known throughout
the district as one of the most consistent shippers of silver ore, will
undoubtedly beoome more widely
known in the future on account of
its wealth of tungsten ore.
Returns of a reoent sample of
tungsten ore have just been received from Denver, Colorado, by Mr.
Norman Fraser, manager of the
mine. The sample contained 39
' per cent, tungsten, which gives
the value per ton of ore at $351.00.
At first it was thought that the
ore was scheelite, but recent ad vices
state that it is wolframite, The
former is a white tungsten ore,
while the latter, whioh is found at
the mine, is a light reddish-brown.
There is, however, an abundance of
the white ore at the mine, and
samples of this will be sent for
The wolframite is found throughout the mine, in quantities that
should make exceedingly profitable
mining, and although a lot of
silver has been recovered from this
property, which is within twenty
minutes walk of Alice Arm. it
is safe to say that real mining
operations have not yet commenced.
How many hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of tungsten
ore have been wasted at the mine,
no one will ever know. There is,
however, large quantities already
in sight, and what will be uncovered by future development
may place the Esperanza in the
front rank of tungtsen ore
During last week-end, a shipment of silver ore was made to
Anyox smelter, eousistng of sixty
tons of low grade, and 179 sacks
of high grade. Haulng of ore from
the mine is proceeding every day,
there being an abundance of snow
for sleighing purposes.

Hockey Championship
Of Alice Arm Is Still
The schedule of games of the
Alioe Arm Hookey League was
brought to a close on Wednesday
evening. The result of the games
is, "as you were," for every team is
on a equal footing with their opponents. Each team has experienced
four wins and four,losses, which
gives them eight points each.
The Tigers, have scored 38 goals
and have had 38 goals scored
against them.
The Wildcats have scored 33
goals, aud 31 scored against them.
The Bears have scored 30 goals,
and 32 scored against them.
In order to decide the city
championship it has been decided
to play a series of games. These
games will be welt worth watching
for each team will go the limit in
order to win.
Three games were played during
the week. In the postponed game
between the Tigers and Bears, on
Sunday afternoon, the Bears proved victorious by the score of 5 to 2.
On Monday evening the Tigers
held the Wildcats^ scoreless, while
they piled up three goals. Paddy
'Williamson, "goal-keeper for the
Tigers, was tlie shining light of
the victors, playing an air-tight
Wednesday evening's game wa
the final struggle for the League
championship, with the Bears aud
Tigers facing eaoh other. A win
for the Tigers would have given
them the championship, but it was
not to be. The Bears were
determined to hold them if possible,
aud this they did, piling up 6 goals
to the Tigers 2.
Bobby Burns Honored
In Anyox By Grand
Close Play For Finals
The Boys On The Hill Again
The event being competition for
finals, at which the leaders were
running a neck-and-ueok race,
brought out an unusually large
crowd at the Mine Club's sixth
card party of the season, held at
the Club's quarters on Tuesday,
Prizes were awarded to those
totalling the highest scores resulting from attendance of the
complete series of six evenings'
play. In the whist competition
particularly, a very keen fight was
enjoyed, Messrs. Peters and McLean differing by only four points
at the opening of the session. For
the bridge enthusiasts, Messrs.
Manning and Tremaine occupied
the limelight; the former leading
easily up to the fifth evening,
when his rival jumped ahead in a
brilliant spurt. The Ladies too
were also making history, Mesdames McMillan, Jones, Patton,
and Talbot, being "the portraits in
the days news."
Whist awards fell to Mrs. Chas.
McMillan and to Mr. Sid Peters,
and the bridge champions were
Mrs. F. E. Patton and Mr. C. W.
S. Tremaine.
The winners of the booby prizes
Dr. Kinsman and Geo Hewson.
Anyox Basketball
Several games have been played
since our last issue. Three were
played.last Friday week-end, when
the Coke Plant defeated the Smelter seniors. The Mine won over
the High School team, in the
Intermediate Division, and the
Bluebirds continued their unbroken
string of victories, this time at the
expense of the Mine girls.
Two games were staged on Wednesday evening, the rejuvenated
Hustlers took the High School lads
into oamp and the Bluebirds added
another victory to their list, the
pioneers being the victims.
The Senior game is hardly
worthy of mention in so far as
basketball is concerned, as the
exhibition put on was more on the
lines of rugby. The players of
both teams might do well by taking recourse to the rule book, and
be sure to absorb the rules which
apply to blocking, shoving, and
charging. The score was 27 to 17.
Yorke was the sharpshooter for
the winners, while Bill Robertson
located the basket the most times
for the losers.

The Burns' concert held under
the auspices of the Union Church
on Monday night was one of the
most successful and enjoyable
entertainments of the season. Mr.
T. J. Kirkwood who was responsible for the programme and who
also acted as chairman is deserving of much credit for presenting
so many proficient vocal and
instrumental artists.
From the rise of the curtain to
its fall there was not a dull
moment. The large audience was
more than repaid for trudging out
in the deep snow, and ou filing out
of the hall many were the expressions of appreciation and satisfaction.
The entertainment began by a
selection of Scottish melodies dear
to the heart of the sons of Scotland, and at once transported
them in memory to the land of
their birth. The leader of this
fine orchestra, which is doing such
fine work in the community, Mr.
S. Steele, hailed from the land of
Burns and knows full well how to
interpret those captivating airs.
The chairman's remarks were'
brief indeed, hence Mr. Kirkwood's
success in that capaoity.
Mi'. Dan McCauley, new to
Anyox audiences delighted his
hearers with" the old favorite
''Bonny Mary-of Argyl."
Dan is one of those rare singers
who although unaccompanied
never fails to grip and to please.
"McGregor's Gatheriug" sung by
Mr.R. W. Murdoch was a masterpiece. Anyox is indeed fortunate
to possess such an artist. Then'1
followed the Scotchman's delight,
"The Highland Fling." danced by
on expert who has delighted many
such audiences, not only in Anyox,
but also in her own home where
heather grows—Miss Mabel
Miss V. McKay is always a
favorite and she was at her best on
this occasion singing "Sing To Me
The Auld Scotsh Sangs."
But the surprise of the evening
was Mr. J. Thompson. We did
not know he could play the pipos
and the absentees really missed a
treat, and his kilds; well we can
only echo the remark which one
gave expression to "Is'nt he cute."
Mr. Thompson is a very popular
Harry Lander artist.
Mr. J. Murdoch was heard and
enjoyed in" a more serious role
giving a reading entitled "Man
Was Made to Mourn." This is the
first appearance of Mr. Murdoch
before an Anyox audience, and we
hope it will not be the last.
Mr. W. Jack also appeared before the Beach people for the first
time with his violin and showed
his mastery over that instrument.
Mr. Jack is the artist we . hope to
hear again.
Miss Edna Herrin and Miss Flo
Kelly in the "Highland Schot-
tische" were just as delightful as
ever. Their spendid dancing and
lightness of step reflects 'great
oredit to their teaoher Mrs. F. M.
Kelly. We understand that Mrs,
Herrin also assists greatly in the

New Mining Co. Receive
Substantial Local
The Kitsault River Mining and
Development Co. Ltd., is well ou
the road towards success. Mr.
Elmer Ness, one of the directors,
who is now engaged iu selling
shares in the company, spent the
past two weeks in Alice Arm, and
during that time he disposed of a
considerable quantity of shares.
All the shares sold to date have
been bought by Alice Ann people,
and among those who have invested in the company, are: Messrs
Art. Beaudin, P. Williamson, J
Strombeek, Ed Peterson, A.
Surbich, T. W. Falconer. Al Falconer, S. Dumas, S. Winstroiu, B.
Turbitt, P. Mondial, S. F. D. Roe,
J. Hanna, A. D. Yorke.
The fact that Mr. New has been
successful in interesting local
people, speaks volumes for the
future success of the company, and
also the integrity of the pilomotors,
who arc local men. A manlier of
those taking stock are well
acquainted with the company's
mining properties at the Kitsault
Glacier, and are of the opinion that
development work will bring iu another producer, and that tbey
should realize considerable cash on
their investment.
Mr. Ness left on Tuesday for
Vancouver and Victoria, where he
will spend the next few weeks selling stock. Development work
will be commenced in the spring,
as soon as the Dolly Varden railway and pack trail is open.
Loyal Order Of Moose
Hosts At Card Party
Last Friday evening the 23rd.
was the occasion of u very successful card party and dance in the
Catholic Hall, under the auspices
of the Loyal Order of Moose. The
tables were- all tilled and cards
were played from 8 o'clock until'
10, after which refreshments were
served. At about 10.30 dancing
was started and continued until
one o'clock. The Moose six piece
orchestra was in attendance,
furnishing splendid music. The
orchestra consists of Mr. Dresser,
piano; J. Varnes, trombone; Sid
Armstrong, violin; Harry Ward,
clarinet; Paul Stivenard, cornet,
and J. Cameron, drums.
This successful affair was largely
due to Messrs. Hutchings, liawlin-
son, Chisholm, Hart, Roberts, and
Johnson, who comprised the Moose
Social Committee. All present
voted an evening well spent with
cards and dancing.

A programme of exceptional
interest has been prepared in connection with the forthcoming
Annual General Meeting of the
British Columbia Division of the
Canadian Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy to be held in Vancouver on February 18th. 19th,
and 20th. next. The Institute as
is well known is a national organi
zation composed mainly of tech
nical men, whose aim and pur
pose is the promotion, chiefly by
educational means, of the best
interests of the mining industry in
this country. Essentially it is
actuated by disinterested motives.
It is on this account that it has
exercised so wide and so admittedly beneficial an influence during the past twenty-six years
throughout Canada. In this Province the tradition of useful service has been adequately maintained by the British Columbia
Division. Having in mind the
idea of service, and recognizing
that the Province at present is
confronted with economic and industrial problems, whose successful
solution is of common concern, the
Division at this meeting is - subordinating its technical or class
interests to the major demands of
community interests. In other
words instead of dealing with
questions that exclusively and
directly affect mining, it will
deliberate issues that exclusively,
if not indirectly affect every
individual, class and industry in
British Columbia.
Of these problems that of
Government Finance, involving
taxation, is not the least pressing.
The tax burden now imposed is a
heavy one. Its effect is to deter
investment and to discourage any
considerable increase of population. But with factors favorable
to the extensions of industry, to
the acceleration of settement, and
to increases of population, the
problem would soon cease to
exist; it would solve itself. Hence
the importance of concentrating
effort on the improvement of basal

as the label on his little bag proclaimed him, paused for a moment,
and then, overcome by a sense of

Samuel came to Canada on the

became particularly attached to the
ship's nurse but was the pet of all

Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
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 such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.

Change Of C. N. R.
Passenger Service
About April 15th.
The steamer Prinoe George,
which has been tied up in Vancouver for several months, will replace the Prinoe Rupert in the
C.N.R. coastwise passenger service early in March after it has returned for annual overhaul in the
meantime. When the Prince
Rupert is withdrawn, she will also
be laid up for an annual overhaul.
It is planned to resume the
twice-a-week Bervice between
Prince Rupert and Vancouver by
tlie steamers Prince Rupert and
Prince George about April 15th.
This service will be in effect until
late in June when the Alaska service, giving Prince Rupert three
boats a week, Anyox and Stewart
two boats and Alaska one boat, is
It is expected that the St.
Margaret, which the company
proposes to purchase, will participate in the summer service between Prince Rupert and Vancouver. The St. Margaret, it is
said, is all ready to enter passenger service. Once the final
decision has been made to purchase
her, it should not take more than
two months to get on this coast
from Gibralter.
California Wants Our
Tungsten and Also
Cobalt Ores
The B. C. Chamber of Mines
at Vancouver has received a request from S. W. Sweed, a former
British Columbia mining man,
now in California, for 15 per cent,
cobalt ore and tungsten ore from
British Columbia. The cobalt ore,
he says, must be free of arsenic
and othef impurities and must run
at least 15 per cent, cobalt.
So far as is known the only district in Canada producing such ore
as yet. is in the Cobalt region of
Ontario, states Henry Browning,
secretary of the Chamber of Mines.
British Columbia has one cobalt-
producing property with a lower
grade, ore, however, he states. It
is the Gold-Cobalt mine at Hazelton.
Tungsten, while scarce, is more
available in this province, however.
On Rocher de Boule Mountain,
in the Hazeleton district, the Red
Rose mine, which has not been
scratched below the surface, is
considered to have a highly
promising lead of high grade tungsten ore.
Both the cobalt and tungsten
are wanted in California's steel industry.
The Esperanza mine will soon be
able to supply California with all
the necessary tungsten ore.—Ed.

Anyox Basketball
Continued from page 1
The ladies league fixture was
the treat of the evening, the game
was fast and olean throughout,
both sides played good basketball.
The Bluebirds started off with a
rush at the start of proceedings,
and in no time were leading five
to nil. The Mine girls soon
caught up, however, and kept the
score even right, to the end of
hostilities. The final score stood
12 to II. The Champions were
without the services of Mrs. Crone
at forward, which weakened their
attack considerably. Mrs. McQuarrie was high scorer for the
winners, while Miss McMillan was
high for the losers. These same
teams meet again on Monday evening at the Mine Gymnasium.
Owing to lack of space further
games coniiot be published.
