Great Promise.       '
Esperanza is Working
The Horseshoe and Prime Minister mining bjaims, which are
situated   on   the   Copper   Creek
(slope of McGrath mountain, are
being developed by Mr. E. Ness,
who is the owner of the property,
and the work already done has
proven very satisfactory. Exceptionally good surface showings have
been located on this property, and
the ledge which is from 12 to 30
feet in width can be traced on the
surface for a distance of two claim
lengths.
There is a vein of high grade
grey copper ore, 30ius. wide on the
{ foot wall, and samples taken from
tljis vein have given assay returns
of 29 per cent, oopper and 4 ozs.
silver per ton. An open cut has
been driven to a depth of 10 feet
and the high grade vein widens
• with depth, and the ore values also
increase. It is the intention ot Mr.
Ness to do further development
work on the property this summer,
Seven men are now employed at
the Esperanza mine, and the work
of mining ore and doing development work is being energetically
prosecuted. Work at present is
being centered in the Baldy tunnel,
but later work will commence
lower down the hill and a new
!' tunnel will be driven.
Enormous pieoes of high grade
float, consisting of ruby silver and
silver sulphides have been found
by Wm. MoLeanc'oh the David
Copperfield property, which joins
the Dolly Varden on the south
side, and a systematic search for
the ledge from whence it came will
be undertaken as soon as possible.
A. Davidson is now in 24 feet
with the new tunnel he is driving
on the Wildcat property, on the
upper Kitsault. Ore is expected
■ to be encountered at a distance of
40 feet from the. portal.
Considerable development work
has been done on the summit group
this summer, by Rod Campbell and
Neil Matheson, and the work done
has been very encouraging. An
immense body of zinc ore is located
on the property, the ore body being
in one place over 70 feet wide.
Besides doing surface stripping a
shaft 12 feet in depth has been
sunk.
When a man loses anything else
he advertises for it, but when he
loses his head he stops advertising.
Anyox Elk's Have
Grand Time in
Prince Rupert
On Tuesday last, an all Elk baseball team and party, left on the
launch Azurite for Prince Rupert
to meet a similar team there. Tho
party arrived at Prince Rupert, at
9 a.m. on Wednesday morning, and
were welcomed on the wharf by a
committee of the Prince Rupert
Lodge.
There was a great frenzy of excitement among the Prince Rupert
children, it being the occasion of
the Annual Flag Day. of the local
Lodge. The fun started with a
monster parade from the Elk's
Home, iu which some hundreds', of
children took part, led by the brass
band. Many of the Anyox boys
took part in the parade, most
noticeable of them being our favorite clown. On arrival at Acropolis
Hill Park, the flag raising ceremony was carried out, followed by
addresses by Dr. Grant, Fred Stork
M. P., and Judge Young. With
the disbanding of the parade, there
was a mad ril3h mi the booths,
when the "Brother Bills" gave the
visitors everything they might
fancy in the way1 of eats.
Although an occasional shower
marred the afternoon, the sports
programme was a huge success
from every point of view.
At 5.45 p.m, the Anyox party
were the «guests of the Prince
Rupert Lodge at an informal ban
quet, and the boys sure did. justice
to the good eats. Worthy Exalted
Ruler Chapman gave a short
address in which he commented on
the splendid welcome given the
party and the friendlyispirit exist'
ing between the two Lodges. Exalted Ruler Gonzales of the Prince
Rupert Lodge replied with a brief
address.
Everyone then repaired to the
ball grounds, where the game commenced at 7.15 p.m.
After a very closely contested
game, the Prince Rupert team
emerged victorious with a score of
5-4.
Pete Draudson did the hurling
for Anyox and although hit freely
at times he was given* good support.
Anyox Started off strong, scoring
four runs in the first two innings,
Cy. Greenwell driving out a home
run. From then on Prince Rupert
tightened up and managed to score
five runs while Anyox was held
scoreless.' The feature of the game
was the fielding of Archie Campbell at centre field.
Jack Sherman umpired balls
and strikes, and Jim McAleenan
officiated on bases.
After the game, the boys were
the guests of the Prinoe Rupert
Lodge at a dance in the Exhibition
Building.
All the boys are loud in their
praise of the manner in whioh the
Weekly Meeting of
Community League
Council, Aug. 9th.
The regular weekly meeting of
the Community League Council
was held at the Mine Hall, oh
Wednesday, August 9th. Councillors present were R. Armour, G.
Warwick, J. Murdoch and E.
Simpson. On the meeting being
called to order, R. Armour was
asked to take the Chair.
On the reading of the minutes of
the previous meeting, it was moved
by Mr. Murdoch and seconded by
Mr. Simpson that they be adopted.
The Secretary reported that
there were no applicaiions for
accomodation at the Alice Arm
Hotel, after the next party left,
which would be oh thp 12th, and
advised the Council to discontinue
the Camp after August 19th. In
this* connection, Mr. Warwick,
Chairman of the summer camp
committee, reported a visit to, the
Hotel, on Sunday, August 6th,
and found everyone enjoying themselves. All were pleased, and the
management of the Hotel gratified
at the way in which the appointments of the Hotel were considered
and looked after by the different
parties from Anyox, Mr. Warwick
also had some nice .things to say
for the secretary, in connection
with the camp and arrangements
that had been made for the comfort
of the League's guests. It was
decided to close the camp on the
date requested by the Secretary.
The question of a picture show
at the mine was brought up and
discussed at some length. It was
finally decided to appoint a committee for the purpose of going
thoroughly into the matter. ^ie
committee appointed oonsists of
Mr. Warwick as chairman, with
Messrs. Murdoch, Buzelle and Selfe
and the Seoretary.
In connection with the semiannual meeting and the nominations for the Council, to replace
the retiring members, the Chairman
thought it would be advisable for
the Seoretary to notify the heads
of League Departments to have
reports ready for that night.
As fifteen dollars was set aside
in June for the purchase of new
books, and as it was agreed that
this amount  should be set aside

Death of Well Known
*   Indian Resident
The death occurred on Thursday
afternoon at Alice Arm, of Mr.
Isaac Gurney, an Indian, who has
resided a short distance from
Anyox for a large number of years,
and is a very familiar figure in the
smelter town.
It is supposed that .the deceased
met his death instantaneous, as
three boys. Henry Carney, Johnny
O'Neill, and Johnny Wilson noticed
him walking on the tide flats dur-
the afternoon and a hour-and-half
later they found him half lying and
half kneeling face downwards,
dead.
The alarm was at once given and
an investigation made. He was
found as the boys had stated, with
a big string of salmon in his hand
which he had evidently been dragging to his row boat which was at
the mouth of the Illiance River.
There was a bruise on his forehead.
It is thought that he stumbled and
fell, striking his* head on a rock,
aud a weak heart and extreme old
age completed the end.
The body was taken to Anyox
on Friday morning and an enquiry
was held by Mr. J. Conway, Government Agent.
The deceased is survived by his
wife at Anyox and a step-daughter
who is now at the Naas River., A
son died last year on the Naas.
Isaac Gurney. has lived all his
life at Anyox—known until 'a few
years ago as Goose Bay—and. on
the Naas River. According to his
own statement he is 92 years of age.
He was 12 years old when the
dreaded Haida Indians, from the
Queen Charlotte Islands fought a
battle with his tribe 80 years ago
at, a point 100 yards back from his
cabin at Gurney Bay, a short distance' from the Coke Plant. He
hid in tlie bush while the fierce
Haidas slaughtered every member
of the tribe. The bones and relics
of old axes, tomahawks, etc, are
there to this day as witness of the'
bloody encounter. n
Deceased was a great hunter,
and died as he had lived in the
pursuit of game to feed himself and
family.        '.     •

Boost for the Local
fair Candidate
Prince Rupert Lodge treated them
during their short stay there and
hope to have them visit Anyox for
a return game at an early date.
The Anyox ball team were:
Draudson, Robertson, Whittaker,
Moran, Greenwell, Mealy, Downs,
Campbell, Macintyre, Bagwill,
Gray, Sherman. Accompanying
them were: Chas. Gray, A. Morton,
G. Moffatt, .Bert. Kergin, H.
Chapman, J. Haslett.
Funeral Service Held
in Anyox for the late
Mr. J. M. McColl
Mr. J. M., McColl, whose death
occurred on tFriday, August 4th,
at the Anyox Hospital, of which
we gave an account last week, was
32 years" of age. He was born at
Murthley, Scotland, and came to
Canada in 1909. He was u train
conductor on the railway at Anyox
for the past five years, and was
held iu the highest esteem by all
who knew him. He was a member
of the Anyox Lodge No. 47, B. P.
O. Elks.
A Funeral Service was held at
the Union Church, on Monday
morning, the Service being conducted by the Rev. J. Herdman,
the Rev. J. B. Gibson, as Chaplain
of the Elks Lodge, also read an
address.
After the Funeral Service at the
Church, a short address was held
by the Elks, at the wharf, the
Service being conducted by the
Rev. J; B. Gibson. A very large
number of persons attended both
Services, including 65 members of
the Elks Lodge. The pall bearers-
who were all brother Elks, were:
J. Rogers, D. Dwyer, F. Morrow,
P.^Carmody, S. Downs, J. Wier.
The body was shipped south on
Monday's Jboat for interment in
Vancouver. Mrs. McColl and
family accompanied the body to
Vancouver.
It is very gratifying to Miss
Rosie Moffatt as well as to her
campaign managers to see the
generous voluntary support that
the residents of Anyox generally
are giving this popular candidate.
In a contest of this kind there is
always an uncertainty until the
last vote is polled. There is no
way of judging the Prince Rupert
candidates votes as they are not
being published. There is only
one way to assure ourselves that
our candidate will win by a big
margin, and that is to keep
"plugging." Boost all you know
for this candidate until the last
minute.
Remember the old saying: "The
wheel that does the squeaking is
the one that gets the grease."
Consistent advertising gets the
business.

Church, Anyox, who was a guest
at the Hotel. The bride and bridegroom arrived from Anyox on
boaro'to specially chartered launch

aud immediately -after- the ceremony the happy couple left again

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
We wish to say that all mining
reports appearing in the Herald
are as accurate as it is possible to
obtain them. While we are ready
at all times to boost the mining
industry of the district, we do not
believe any benefit is derived from
a misrepresentation of facts. All
mining reports coming into this
office are carefully scrutinized and
are not published unless coming
from a trustworthy source. The
Alice Arm district now has an
enormous amount of ore shown up
on the surface and considerable
development work has been done
on several properties, but a lot
more remains yet to be done.
The district has received a temporary set-back due to incompetent mining companies operating
one of the best properties in the
district, and who were so busy
digging out the high grade ore
that they forgot to look into the
future, and the mismanagement of
that company closed down two of
the best properties and the only
worth-while transportation system
in the district. As soon as a
competent mining company is
operating in the district, Alice Arm
will forge ahead, and the large
amount of ore in sight on the
scores of mining properties scattered throughout the whole district
will be the best boost it is possible
to obtain. In the meantime, we
are going to publish the facts as
regards mining and await the
advent of competent mining companies, to show the world that
Alice Arm as a mining camp
ranks second to none on the north
American continent.

Value of Advertising
The action brought by a retail
grocer against the daily newspaper
of a town in the Western States,
for failure to print his advertisement, alleging loss of sales to the
extent of $1000, is indicative of .the
value he places on advertising as a
means of stimulating business.
In his statement of complaint he
declares that he does depend very
largely on advertising for business,
and on acoount of the non-appearance of his advertisement hjs sales
were, $500 less than they would
have been had the advertisement
appeared.
The outcome of the suit is not
yet known, but it is interesting to
note the definite turnover that this
merchant credits as directly due to
his advertising. The use of newspaper space as a means' of
stimulating sales and keeping the
name of a merchant before the
public cannot be underestimated,
and when coupled with the display
of the proper sort and effective
selling talks, is always productive
of results.—Canadian Grocer.
" Would the Esperanza be operating if it was situated 15 or 20
miles up the Kitsault river.?
HIGH GRADE FLOAT
When contracting companies
starts mining, there's the devil to
pay in camp.
The   Spaniards gutted the mines
. of Mexico and Peru;
But Alice Arm knows something
about gutting mines too.
That the high grade ore mined
in the Dolly Varden is but a pea
nut beside a mountain, to what
will be found in the Kitsault
Valley when money is available for
development work is the opinion of
those who know the country.
Alice Arm has been treated to
the painful spectacle of watching
one of its richest mines gutted by
the get-rieh-quick guys. Let us
hope the next operators will know
what mining is.
If the close-down of the Dolly
Varden had'nt closed down the
railway, several properties would
be operating in the upper Kitsault
country today. i

Community League Meeting
Continued from page 1.
every month for the same purpose,
the Council decided that the
Chairman of the Forum Committee could now spend $60 for
, library books.
The Chairman asked about the
rolling of the ball grounds, how
often it was done and what the
cost amounted to. In*this connection the Council approved the
condition of the ground throughout
the season, stating that they were
never so good as they were this
year. The secretary reported that
there ,was a standing order for the
grounds to be rolled every Tuesday
and that occasionally it had been
found necessary to go over them
the second time in a week. The
cost averaged eight dollars every
time the work was done.
The financial statement of the
Anyox-Ketchikan baseball series
was again made by request, and
the Secretary was asked to embody
this in the minutes. The members
of the Counoil were decidedly
pleased over the success of the
July 1st, celebration and wanted
the widest publicity given to the
details.
There was some discussion on the
matter of prizes for the winners
of the ball and soocer Leagues. In
this connection it was mentioned
thattheSpaudling people, sporting
goods'dealers,, had offered prizes
for the winners of the ball League,
and. the chairman thought ii these
did not materialize, the Secretary
should wait on the management
of the Granby Co. who had supplied prizes last year for the
winning teams.
In the matter of first aid equipment    at    the    ball     grounds,
Councillors Murdoch and Simpson
stated that they had been told
there was nothing ready in case of
accident. The Seoretary reported
that iodine and bandages had been
available all through the season
and were still in the dressing room.
Several letters were read, among
them one from Mr. J. Pinder-Moss,
as follows, and is self explanatory:
F. Kelley, Esq.,
Secretary Community League,
