Esperanza Mining Rich
Shoot of High Grade
Ore
One of the best shoots of high
grade ore ever located at the Esper-
anna, is now being mined. The
ore vein lies rather Hat. It
is between two dykes, which
are 200 feet apart, and the ore
extends from dyke to dyke and is
nearly 3 feet thick. After a close
study ofthe ground, it is estimated
that the ore extends up the hill for
a distance of 500 feet, and also a
considerable distance down the hill.
The vein is composed of 10 inches
of exceptionally high grade ore, in
fact as good a grade of ore as has
been found in the mine, and this
property as everyone knows has,
in the past shipped some really high
grade ore. There is also two feet
of ore not quite so good, but which
is full of native, ruby and brittle
silver, and should pay a handsome
profit.
Other veins of ore were recently
encountered, but at present are not
being mined, work being concentrated on the larger one.
Since the Esperanza was first
worked in 1912 by Capt. John
Irving and associates, a lot of high
grade ore has been shipped, and
instead of tlie supply diminishing,
it seems to increase. The biggest
handicap the property has had to
contend with, is the lack of a compressor plant. All work has been
by hand, which is a slow process.
When a compressor plant is operating and long tunnels, giving a
greater depth on the ore can be
driven, the Esperanza will considerable increase its shipments, and
probably rank as one of our leading
properties in the days to come.

Northern Lights Were Bright
Wednesday Evening
Those who were out-of-doors on
Wednesday evening, had the
pleasure of witnessing an unusual
bright display of that northern
phenomenon, the Aurora Borealis
or Northern Lights. The shafts of
light were all over the sky, north,
south, east and west which is unusual for this distriot. The lights
are also very seldom seen in the
spring, and their exceptional
brightness in view of this fact was
surprising to all beholders.

Charlie Lindberg arrived yesterday from Anyox where he has
spent the past winter.
Thirteen tons of ore were shipped
last week on the Cardena, from the
Esperanza Mine. Some of the ore
went to Anyox, some to Tacoma
and the balance to Trail.

iu the early part of the week.
The big log carrying barge,
Drumrock, arrived at Alice Arm
on Monday, to load approximately
one million feet, from the booms of

the week. She is owned by John-
soil & Waltham, who have a fleet
of these log carriers operating on
the coast.
It is claimed that this method of
carrying logs is more satisfactory
than a Davis raft
Mr. Denny Jackson, representing
the famous diamond drill firm of
Boyle Bros, arrived in Alioe Arm
from the Premier Mine yesterday.
He is here with a view of making
arrangements with anyone who
wish to develop their property by

future work around town.
Anyox Artists Give a
Second Performance
A very pleasant musical evening
was held at the Mine Hall, on
Monday evening, under the auspices of the Ladies' Aid of the United
Churoh.
The evenings' entertainment was
considerably enlivened by the
Mine Club Melodians.
The first part of the programme
was musical and of an exceptional
fine quality.    Mrs. J.   Murdoch,
rs. H. Armstrong, Mrs. Tamkin
Mr; E. Blundell, and Mr. J. Mitchell, rendered vocal solos. Messrs.
Evans and Owens of the Mine
greatly pleased the audience with
two vocal duets. Miss Leitch and
Bonny Chapman played an instrumental duet. Mr. Wylie Grant
ably rendered a violin solo. Mr.
Dresser, Dr. Davies, Mrs. Kent and
Miss Leitch acted as accompanists.
Recitations by Jean Robertson
and Kenneth Lawn were heartily
encored.
The main feature of the evening
was a humorous sketch "Sewing
for the Heathen." This was
splendidly produced.
The cast was as follows:
Mrs. Judd, the hostess.—Mrs.
Patriok.
Meely, 'the maid'— Mrs: A. -Roberts.
The Rich Mrs. Powers—Mrs.
Neil McLeod.
Mrs. Chesty, the President—Mrs.
H. Kirk.
Grandma Gibbs—Mrs. J. Dunn.
Mrs. Strong—Mrs. A.'Crone.
Mrs. Meeker—Mrs. J. Cloke.
Mrs, Day—Mrs. Clay.
Luella Huggins—Miu C. McMillan.
This entertain ment was first
given at the United Church, on
March 26th. and so great was its
popularity that it was decided to
give another performance at the
Mine.
Another Vein Encountered
on Wolf
A visit to the Wolf mine on
Thursday revealed the interesting
fact that another vein of ore has
been enoountered in the crossout
tunnel now being driven.
The vein is about 12 inches wide
containing considerable white
quartz which is impregnated with
native, ruby and brittle silver. It
has a dip of about 45 degrees, and
it is possible that it may unite with
the original vein, which was en
countered last week. The footwall
of this latter vein has not yet been
reached. ^
Underground Work Premier
Up to Deoember 31st. 1925 the
total amount of diamond drillingat

The total amount of underground
work, drifts, crosscuts and raises
was 32,950 feet at the same date.

Badminton Club Winds
Up Season with
Tournament
Last Sunday was a busy day
for the Anyox Badminton Club,
who played off a tournament to
wind up their seasons' play.
Twenty-four took part in the first
half of the series, forty-eight mixed
double games being played.
Everything went off in fine style,
play commencing at 10.30 a.m. and
finishing at 6.30 p.m.
The Ladies had thoughtfully provided a variety of good fare whioh
was served in the balcony, and Mr.
Ashton saw that the teapot was
always full to quench tlie thirsty
players.    ,
The balcony presented a very
pleasing sight, the spectators using
it to the greatest advantage to
watch the various games.
It is to be regretted that space
will not permit to record the result
of each game, the Tournament was
decided on points the total number
of points making a possible was
120.
Mrs. Kirby made the highest
number of points among the Ladies,
117 being her score, Mrs. Eve was
second with 115.
Mr. F. Brown and Mr. Moffat
tied, making 120 each. A final
game had to be played to decide
the winner, Mr. Brown winning by
18 points.
Although Badminton in Anyox
was only started this season it
proved a very successful means of
passing the long winter evenings,
and thanks are due to their able
secretary Mrs. E. J. Conway, who
devoted a great deal of her time in
making the Club a success. Mr.
E. Ashton is also to be complimented for his many kindnesses.
It is hoped that next season lo
organize the Club earlier and that
the membership will be largely
increased.

players:

Spring is here, and clean-up time
has arrived.    Clean up the back
yard and clean up the front yard.
A clean town is a beautiful thing
to behold.   It is a proof that its inhabitants are proud of the town in
which they live.   One of the first
things noted by a visitor is the condition of the ground around the
houses.   If they are clean it shouts
progressiveness, and if they   are
covered with refuse it spells lack
of energy and slothfulness   on behalf of its residents.     Owing to
the barren nature of the ground it
is extremely hard  for Anyox  to
present a neat and attractive appearance, but all rubbish could  be
gathered up in the immediate vicinity of the residences,  showing
that as much as possible had been
done   to    present   an   attractive
appearance.    Alice Arm is situated differently, vegetation being
prolific.   There is no excuse for
an untidy front or back yard.     A
little cultivation and a few flower
or vegetable seeds will transform
an eyesore to a thing of beauty.
Alice Arm will have a number of
visitors this year.     Show   them
you are progressive by cleaning up
and planting seeds wherever possible.

Denies  Report of Sale
Indian Mines
of
The illuminating and instructive
address given in Anyox last week
by Walter McRaye, on "Canadian-
ism," was the source of much discussion. Mr. McRaye spoke a
lot of truths, which should be digested bby everyone. The time is
rotten ripe for a true Canadian
spirit, and it is time we put our
house in order. We should unquestionably manufacture our raw
materials instead of shipping it to
foreign countries and then buying
it back at fancy prices. We should
be better boosters for the country
we are living in and patronize our
own manufacturers, whenever possible. With our vast resources,
there should not be any
necessity for a Canadian to leave
the country nor should there be for
those who come here from other
parts of the Empire or foreign
countries.   During the past, Can-
' It's only a rumor and there's
nothing to it," stated J. Arthur
Smith, director of the Indian
Mines Ltd. when asked regarding a
report that the Indian mine at
Stewart had been sold to the
Premier Gold Mining Co. Ltd. Mr
Smith stated that Premier engineers had made a thorough examina
lion of the property but that nothing in the way of a sale had yet
been brought before the Indian
directors.
J. Fred Ritchie, the president of
the company, is at present on a
trip to Seattle and the secretary,
L. W. Patmore, is on his way home
after a trip east.
Joe Rogers Passes Out
Joe Rogers, well known in Stewart in tlie early days as a hotel
proprietor and fur dealer, and who
later made his home in Prince
Rupert, died at Bothel Washington
last week.
ada has been the training ground
for thousands of immigrants going
to the United States. We get
them here at considerable expense,
learn them the language-if they
are from a foreign country-teach
them now to do things as they are
done on this continent, and then
they leave us. Canada with its
vast territory, its undeveloped
wealth, agricultural, mining, lumbering and manufacturing, should
have been able to absorb every
immigrant that has come to the
country during the past 50 years,
and at the same time retain every
single one of its native born population, but it has not. Canada is
increasing in prosperity and population, but not nearly as fast as it
should do, when its enormous territory and resources are taken into
consideration.

Sebakwe Co. Starts Work
Tlie Sebakwe management are
losing no time in getting development underway on tho Bush property. The Prince George on
Thursday brought in a 60 h.p-
engine, capable of developing 340
cubic feet of air, with the necessary
accessories, including a starter
engine, air receiver and air pipe,
the shipment weighing 13 tons.
The Crawford Transfer Co., who
have the hauling contract, at once
started to move this equipment up
the hill, in addition to lumber and
other material for the construction
of the camp which will lie erected
adjacent to the new tunnel south
of tlie Bush slide.
Ten men, including a cook, went
to the property Wednesday to get
things under way. While no details are available, it is understood
that tho new camp will have accommodations for about 15 men.
Big Missouri Has Large
Ore Body
Captain Duncan McVichie, a
well known mine operator from the
States, and Harry Townsend, consulting engineer for the Big Missouri Mining Co., after spending
some days at the mine, left for the
south Monday night* apparently
satisfied with what they had seen.
Mr. Townsend expeots to return in
about two weeks, while Capt. McVichie said that he anticipates
being back again when the snow
has gone.
Work on the property has been
progressing very satisfactorily
throughout the winter. An important feature is a new discovery made
on the Union Fraction, which ad-
joing the Unicorn on the west.
The size, strike and dip of this ore
body have not yet been determined
owing to the fact that although
d; ifts have been run on it 22 feet
wjst, 20 feet north and 7 feet south
iiio wall has so far been encountered
and more work is required to obtain
[real information.
Lumber and supplies are being
[rushed in by the Crawford Transfer
Jo,, before the snow leaves and
nakes it necessary to use pack-
torses.

of the company's capitalization and
is nearly a quarter-million over the
most optimistic estimates of the
mining men who were familiar
with its recent operations.
. The earnings per share for the
past three years are:
1923 $3.98
