Esperanza Ships
High Grade Ore
Over forty tons of high grado
ore from the Esperanza mine was
shipped by scow yesterday to, the
Anyox smeltei'. This ore has been
taken out by leasers at the mine,
and it is expeoted that the values
will be high. Two hundred more
saaks of high grade are at the mine
ready to come down the hill. All
those taking leases are steadily
I producing ore, and another shipment will be made in the near
future. The Esperanza is proving
to be one of the steadiest
shipping mines on the coast Since
it commenced operations some
twelve years ago it has changed
hands four times. Each owner has
made money out of the mine, and
shipped considerable ore. The
Esperanza has paid since the first
pick was driven into the ground
and very little dead work has been
necessary. The ore is'found in
small high grade veins, and has
('.paid from the grass roots. When
''< sufficient capital is available for
development work, large bodies
of ore are likely to be encountered.
St. Patrick's Dance
Held at Alice Arm
The 17th. of Auld Ireland was
celebrated in the good old-fashioned
northern mining camp style on
Saturday evening last, when a
dance was held at the Alice Arm
Hotel, and almost the entire populace were there to honour the
memory of Ireland^ patron saint.
The dance was held in the big
dining room, whioh was tastefully
decorated for the occasion, the room
in fact looked like a piece of the
Emerald Isle itself, and great credit
is due to Mrs. E. MoCpy, and
Messrs. T. Black and Geo. Graham,
whose talent were responsible for
the decorations.
A gay throng of dancers crowded the floor throughout the
evening and two orchestras were
necessary in order to satisfy the
unquenohabfe dancing appetite of
those present. Mrs. T. W. Falconer, and J. Fiva,' piano. E. R.
Oatman, cornet; J. Laidlaw, violin;
D; Thompson, fife; A. D. Hallett,
guitar; and B. Ness, mandolin,
composed the two-shift orohestra,
and they kept things moving at a
lively clip throughout, the evening.
Solos were rendered by Messrs. J,
Potts, E. R. Oatman and. Geo.
Graham, at intervals during the
evening.
A bountiful and appetising
supper was served by Mrs E. M,
) MoCoy, and everyone unanimously
declared that the St. Patrick's
Danoe was the best held in town
for a long time.
Anyox Honors St.
Patrick's Day
Catholic Ladies Give Dance
' On Friday, March 16th, the
ladies of the Catholic Church honored the memory of Ireland's
patron saint with their annual
dance in the Recreation Hall, whioh
was prettily decorated for the
oooasion. The harp and shamrock,
emblems of St. Patrick, predominating as ornamentations upon a
background of jgreen and orange,
the associating of these two colors
demonstrating the harmonius spirit
of the oooasion.  ,
A 5'piece orohestra, Messrs. Liddel, Haesler, Varnes, Prevost, and
Tynemouth rendered the music,
every number of which just aggravated a desire for more. Quadrilles
and Lancers were special features
introduced, but the piece de'resistance was a circle two-step just
after midnight to the tune of "St.
Patrick's Day in the Mornin." This
won such popular approval that it
had to be repeated seven or eight
times. If there was any item more
popular it was the supper. It was
a grand night and the credit for
the evening's success is due to
Mesdames'A. Morton, J. Dillon,
C. J. Harrington, 3. Morning, E.
J. Conway; M. Loftus.
Messrs. T. J. Ryan and J. Tierney
were responsible for the artistic
decorations.

Geo. Clothier Gives
Interesting Address
An optimistic story of the development of mining in Northern
British Columbia was given at a
meeting last week, in Vancouver,
by Mr. Geo, A. Clothier, under the
auspices of the Chamber of Mines.
Mr. Clothier, who is the provin
cial mining engineer for this
district, gave a very interesting
and forceful address, and being in
a position to know what he is talking about his words carried
conviction. To convince his audience that mining in the north is
booming, he stated that more than
1200 assessments were done during
the past year, that 1000 prospectors certificates were issued and
*700 olaims staked according to
government office statistics.
The speaker advised small operators to get in touch with
prospectors who would be willing
to give an interest to anyone who
will do a certain amount of work
or spend money in having work
done. Mr. Clothier gave a lengthy
description of mining activities in
the north.
Surprise Party at Anyox
Mrs. B. J. Waterman, whose
birthday anniversary happens to
be on the same day as Ireland's
patron saint, had a very pleasant
surprise oil Saturday evening,
March 17th, when a number of
friends just dropped in casually as
it were, each loaded with packages
of good things to eat.
Amongst those present were:
Mr. and Mrs. F. Person, Mrs. S.
Brentzen, Messrs. M. Cranley, 8.
Down, Geo. Cooper, and many
others who spent a very enjoyable
evening.
which mills are trying to buy copper
at present prices for July and even
August shipment, indicating that
despite rise of two points a pound in
price during the last three weeks they
are expecting considerable further
advance.
Wire—mill buying of copper during
the last few days has been slightly
stronger than that by brass mills.
Indications are that the industry has
about covered its requirements so far
as March is concerned, but the way
that ultimate consumers have been
coming into the market recently
points to capacity operation by mills
well into summer as normal good
orders for summer business come into
the market in April and May.
Price of electrolite copper for domestic shipment is 17 cents a pound delivered to end of June. Price of Lake
copper is 17 cents to end of May.
Price aside ship New York is 16.90 to
17 cents With little available at the
lower price. Prices for European destinations are at levels corresponding
with 17 1-8 to 17 1-4 cents c. i. f. Hamburg and London, with little copper
obtainable at the lower price and some
sold at as high as 17 3-4 cents.

Monthly Meeting of
Anyox Parent-Teacher
Association
About thirty-five were present
tat the regular monthly meeting of
'jthe Anyox Parent-'Teaoher Association held in the New §ohool
last Tuesday evening.
The business session included an
! encouraging report from the convenor of the School Library Oom-
.niittee who stated that about, half
jof the books ordered recently had
'arrived and were already in good
(circulation.     The    High   Sohool
istudents have been doing excellent
work and incideritly receiving some
valuable training iu cataloging and
J'distributing   these   Volumes,     It
1 seems to us that an occasional per-
i,usal of the new titles on the library
shelves by visiting   parents   will
awaken their interest   as to tho
value of these careful selections and
should   prompt   the, encouraging
' of a greater wish and wi|l to read
good wholesome and sensible books
i by their boys and girls."
Another hundred dollars was
voted at this meeting to be applied
to the purchase of suitable pictures
and teachers' reference books. For
the purpose of aiding and selecting
the former requisite the above committee was increased to six members
and will now include Mrs. Ed. Con-
Way and Miss Bowes.
Mr. H. R. King who had anticipated giving a resume of early B.
C. history read instead an enlightening article entitled, "Well I
Didn't Know That" written by
Edward Bok an eriiment American
editor. To the majority of those
present this   article, proved   the
souroe of a wealth of information
and insight into the customs and
institutions' of that remarkable
country the Netherlands. This
astute and energetic nation, as was
pointed out, has given to the world,
and certainly without sufficient
credit, many of the men and ideas
whioh have made itself and other
nations especially U. S. A. great.
Not only beoause of the enjoyable-
ness of his instructive paper but for
the reason also that he is to leave
Anyox shortly, Mr. King Was
aocqrded a hearty vote of thanks in
appreciation of his active interest
iii the school work of his community
as President of the Sohool Board,
During the sooial hour Miss
Zeigler and Mr. Morrow contributed extremely pleasing instrumental
and vocal selections. Miss B.. A.
Leitch accompanied the latter.
Refreshments and the National
Anthem brought a very successful
meeting to a close.

Continued from page 1.
Office men seemed to have more
staying power than their opponents
running away with them in the
last ten minutes, during which
.time H. Thorley did some effective
shooting. The linal score was:
Office 25, Tuxis 18.
The Browns and High School
girls next took the Moor. The
School, who have been playing an
up-hill game all the season, showed
a vast improvement iu this game,
being in the lead at one time with
the score 6-5, but in the second, the
Browns which are a heavier team
were too strong for the girls.
Miss Jennie Oxley of the School
team was the victim of an unfortunate accident, falling against the
wall, she was injured in the face
and forced to retire for the balance
of the game. The final score wasi
Browns 15, High School 7. . .

In Again
A visitor from the dry belt who
had looked upon the wine when he
was no longer sure what color it
was, on bis way home encountered
a tree protected by an iron tree
guard. Grasping the bars, he
cautiously felt his way around it
twice. "Curse it," he moaned,
sinking to the ground in despair,
"locked in."   .
Wife (with newspaper) just think
of it!" "A couple got married a
few days ago after a courtship
which lasted fifty years."
I suppose the poor old man was
too, feeble to hold out any longer."

TRY THIS MENU FOR
YOUR INSOMONIA
A man suffered from insomnia and
his friend told him a sure cure, says
the Detroit News.
Eat a couple of bananas and drink
two or three glasses of milk before going to bed," said he, "and I'll warrant
you'll be asleep within half an hour."
The man did as his friend suggested
and went to sleep soon after his retirement, but this is what he dreamed;
The friend came on the scene with
his head under his arm and asked if
the man wanted to buy his feet. The
man was negotiating with him, when
the dragon on which he was riding
slipped out of his skin and left him in
mid-air.
While he was considering how he
should get down, a bull with two
heads peered over the edge of the wall
and said he would haul the man
up if he would first climb up and rig
a windlass for him.
So, as the man was sliding down
the mountainside, the conductor came
in, and the man asked him when the
train would reach his station.;
"We passed your station 200 years
ago," the conductor said calmly, folding the train up and slipping it into
his waistcoat pocket.
At this juncture the man awoke and
found he had been asleep almost ten
minutes.

The secret of
good beer lies
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 plant to accomplish this.
But after testing Cascade Beer, you agree
that it has been worth it.
