Esperanza   Has   High
Grade Ore In Five
During the past week the working force at Esperanza mine has
been increased. Seven men are
now on the payroll, aud the force
will bo increased to eight within a
few days. This number of men
will be employed throughout the
Development work at the present
time is being carried on in numbers one, five, and seven tunnels.
No ore will be shipped this winter
all the winter's work will be concentrated on blocking out ore for
spring shipments.
There are seven tunnels on the
property and high grade ore is
showing in five. It is expected,
however, that ore will also be
located in the remaining two within a short time.
The new tnnnel, which was
started some time ago, to strike'
the ore at a lower depth, has been
driven a distance of 93 feet. Two
high grade stringers have been
crosscut, but the main vein has not
yet been encountered.
There is at present more high
grade ore developed at the mine
than   at    any    time    previously
Blocking out of ore is being carriedf expansion which will include new
on in numbers 5 and 7 tunnels,
and with the completion of the
winter's development the Esperanza will undoubtedly have a large
tonnage of high grade ready for
Hallowe'en Party Held
At Alice Arm
A very enjoyable Hallowe'en
party was held at the Alice Arm
School on Saturday evening. It
was sponsored by Mr. Everett
Greenaway of the teaching staff',
and young and old thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Games of various kinds were provided for the children, while the
adults received their greatest thrill
in ascending to Heaven, up a dark
and treacherous stairway, but all
arrived safely, the majority with a
sigh of relief.
Prize winners for the evening,
were best Hallowe'en drawing,
Lillian Moss; ducking for apples,
Marguerite Moss aud Jerry
O'Connor; picking apples from
string, Leah Kergin.
The sohool was elaborately decorated with weird Hallowe'en emblems, credit for which is due to
E. Greenaway and the school
Refreshments were served and a
very successful party was brought
to a close shortly before midnight."
Born to Mr. and Mrs. T.  Evans,
North Star Mine Will
Operate Throughout
The North Star property will be
operated throughout the coming
winter. This makes another property for winter operation in addition to the list we published in a
previous issue.
All supplies, including one ton of
powder are now at the mine.
The tunnel which was commenced last fall was driven a distance of
225 feet, A crosscut was then
driven a distance of 60 feet, which
cut through a heavy mineralized ore
body 15 feet wide. At present this
ore body is being drifted on.
The North Star joins the Dolly
Varden on the east, and it is confidently believed that it contains a
continuation of the rich ore bodies
that made the Dolly Varden so
famous when it was in operation.
A sample of ore taken from the
surface on the North Star recently
gave the high returns of $65.00
gold, 375 oz. silver, and 8 per cent
lead per ton. The high gold returns were somewhat unexpected,
md check assays will be made.
Chicago capital is at the present
time responsible for development
work, but it is understood that an
capital is underway.

Alice  Arm   Residents
Invest Heavily In
The people of Alice Arm do not
intend outsiders to reap all the
benefit from th'e development of the
district's mineral resources. This
was clearly shown last week-end
when over 20,000 shares of the
Utility Mining & Financing Co.
who are developing the Tiger, was
acquired by local residents.
The whole business was transacted in two days, at the rate of
20c. a share. Quite a number
participated, individual purchases
ranged from 4,000 to 250 shares.
It is understood that the price of
stock will shortly be advanced.
The Tiger was always counted
upon locally as a future mine, and
the phenominal good results attained in developing the ore came as no
great surprise to those who know
that section in which the Tiger is
Other mining companies will be
organized in tbe near future to
develop well known properties,
including the Homeguard, Those
who get in at the com'mencement
of operations, when the price of
shares is low, may realize hand
somely on their investment.
Interesting Debate Will Be
Shortly Held
Anyox Debating Society will
gather in Recreation Hall at an

Teams Lined Up For
Indoor Baseball
Those interested in indoor baseball met on Wednesday evening to
discuss plans. It was decided to
form an executive to take charge of
this sport. The officers are: President, Mr. E. G. Brown; Vice-president, Mr. Perrin; Secretary, Mr.

team will be added to the executive.
At present writing three teams are
promised: one from Smelter Hill,
one from the Concentrator, and one
from the Store. Two of these
teams will stage an exhibition on
Wednesday evening next. It is
likely that the gym will be given
over to this sport for one evening
each week. Hope was expressed

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
The copper situation is the most
interesting feature of the mining
situation today. We are glad to
be able to state that the fears for
a run-away market are groundless.
The situation is well under control
and there is the best relationship
existing between producers and
consumers in the history of the
industry. The improvement in
the market is here to stay, provided
production is kept within economic
bounds. Canada is destined to
leadership in world production.
For some years British Columbia
has been the largest producer of
the metal, with present production
of about 100,000,0001b. a year.
Ontario takes second place. This
year Quebec, with its Noranda
Mine and smelter, will make a
good third. Within two years
Manitoba will also become a producer of copper. The Territories
of Yukon and Keewatin and the
province of Nova Scotia are also
destined to become important factors in the copper production of
Canada.—Mining and Industrial
Finding Ore on Dunwell
With Radiore
Portland Canal   News
R. M. Stewart, president of the
Dunwell Mines Co., when asked
as to what results are being obtained from the Radiore examination of the Dunwell ground that
has been in progress for two weeks,
said that the results are very satisfactory, indicating ore bodies to the
north and east, also to the south
and east of the old Dunwell workings.
In veiw of the indicating ore bodies the next step, Mr. Stewart
said, would be to correlate these results with the known geological
conditions, from which results a
diamond drilling campaign will be
laid out this winter, to be put into
effect next spring.
Mr. Stewart leaves for the south
asrain next week.
U. S. A. Canada's Best
Metal Customer
The United States continues as
Canada's best customer for non-fer
rous ores and smelter products,
according to the monthly report relating to the industry, issued by the
Dominion bureau of statistics.
Canada's entire export of raw
gold during September of $892,417
went to the United States, whil
581,600 pounds of aluminum out of
6,715,900 pounds exported was
shipped across the border.
Germany and the United States
took all of the 8,731,700 pounds of
blister copper exported during the
month. The figure represents an
increase of more than 100 per cent

Standing Grain Is Flour In
Four Days
From field to flour in four days
was the record established by
Stewart Shouldioe, an Ontario farmer, who was among the first to

wheat the middle ofthe week. By

season. The two new "Duchess"

on the sailing list, the former being due in New Brunswick on March

The promotion of two of Canada's best known hotelmen to important posts in the service of the
Canadian Pacific Railway has been
announced by the hotel department
of the company. B. A. Neale, manager of the Chateau Fronlenac at
Quebec, has been appointed manager of the new 1,200-room skyscraper hotel in Toronto, the Royal

the great hotelery at Quebec will
be taken by John Johnston who has
been assistant manager at the Chateau for some time.
The distribution of dividend
money every three or six months
to shareholders of industrial and
commercial enterprises in Canada
runs into many millions of dollars
a year. The money goes to an
army of people throughout the
country, many of whom depend on
it for their living and it has much
to do with the continued prosperity
of Canada. About 88 companies are
listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, a small part of the total
number of those making regular
dividend disbursements in Canada,
but for the third quarter of this
year these 88 companies distributed in dividends over twenty million dollars, of which the Canadian
Pacific alone accouuted for $7,-
500,000. This was by far the langest
distribution by any one company,
the next largest being $981,608.
The number who regularly benefit
by these distributions of profits is
increasing every year, thus showing a more general tendency on
the part of the Canadians to invest their earnings in the stocks
of well established and sound Industrial concerns  *...
