Esperanza Development
Shows Richer Ore
Development work of the big ore
ledge at the Esperanza mine is
being proceeded with as rapidly as
possible. It has been decided to
drift on the ledge a distance of
twenty feet eaoh way so that an
idea of its persistency oan be gathered. It is possible that a shaft
may be sunk on it later, or failing
that a lower tunnel driven in order
to determine its depth and values.
An additional number of samples
have been sent out for assaying.
The ore recently broken into appears to be of a higher grade
than even that from whioh the
high gold values were recently obtained.
An emergency meeting of the
Directors was held in Prince
Rupert last week. No important
business regarding the future of
the mine wasdiscussed. The main
business of the meeting being the
disposal of stock of which there is
now only a limited amount for
public subscription.

ANYOX NOTES
Russian  Asiactic  Are
Huge Concern
Who are the Russian Asiatic
Consolidated that has made an ofter
for the Toric mine is a question
that hasiieen asked frequently during the past two weeks.
Below we are publishing a report
of their negotiations with the Russian Government, which was recently published in the Vancouver press.
It shows that they are a powerful
organization, with considerable experience in mining, and with sufficient capital to develop the whole
mining district of Alice Arm if
necessary.
"A step toward the resumption of
Anglo-Russian trade relations, embracing the return of seized properties, with United States participation
is reported in London.
"It is stated negotiations now are
almost completed between the Soviet
Government, the British Commission, the Russian Asiatic Consolidated and Guggenheim and Harriman
interests of United States, promising
an amicable settlement of the long
standing dispute between Britain
and Russia.
"The basis of the negotiations include"
"In settlement of the Russian
Asiatic Consolidated's claim again^
the Soviet Government of $280,000,-
000, the Soviet Government will
issue $10,000,000 in 3}4 per cent
15-year bonds. The bonds will be
discounted for cash at par by the
Guggenheim and Harriman groups.

Offer Made For Silver
Crest Mine
New interest was centred in Silver Crest mines recently iu Vancouver following receipt of a wire
from P. B. Peterson, engineer
of the company, who is
now in New York asking what the
company would take for its Saddle
property on Hastings Arm. Silver
Crest officials are now looking into
the offer. The Saddle property is
now near the shipping stage, the
aerial tramway requiring only a
few weeks work to complete when
the snow clears.
Mr. Peterson was formerly connected with the Anaconda Company and later was with the Granby.
The wire does not say what the interests are who have asked for a
price on the Saddle property.

Mining development in the Alice
Arm district has now reached the
stage where the big companies are
being interested. Judging from recent developments they are not only
interested but anxious to acquire
property in this favored section.
Successful development of the
Toric is the match that has started
the blaze. Who will eventually
own the Toric is not at present
known, but it is safe to say that
when operations are re-commenced
they will be done by a large company, capable of mining on a large
scale and also enlarging their scope.
The importance of the ore deposits
of Alice Arm district have been
stressed by mining engineers during
the past few years. The big
companies, however, were loth to
take a chance until tonnages of ore
were exposed. The Toric has
shown them that the district
possesses large bodies of good
commercial ore. Which proves
that before the big companies enter
the field the little ones must blaze
the trail. Several small companies
are at present developing first-class
properties in the district and within
the next few years several more
snch mines as the Toric will have
large tonnages of ore to show. A
large tonnage means a large outlay
of capital, and it is at this stage
that the big fellow fills the gap.
The little company is often spoken
of as a "hay-wire outfit," but they
are doing far more than the big
mining companies in developing
the mineral wealth of the province.
Let us have as many little companies as is possible. Next to the
prospector they are the pioneers,
and no obstacle should be placed
in their way by government restrictions, unless it is proven that they
are crooks, who mine the public
and squander the money. During
the past few years Alice Arm has
been singularly fortunate in having

"The American group, in exchange

"The Russian Asiatic Consolidat-
ed's properties in Russia were confiscated by the Soviet Government
in 1918, and consist of a freehold
leasehold on mining, agricultural
and forest lands, and mining claims
and concessions covering 2,500,000
acres. This includes twelve developed metal mines, coal mines, iron
mines with blast furnaces and
rolling mills, steel works, two copper smelting plants, a copper refinery, lead plant, zinc plant, cyanide
and gold mills, and also 250 miles
of railroad, a river fleet of steamers
and barges.
"The Russian Asiatic Consolidated
originally had $60,000,000 capital
and,- following their confiscation,
placed a claim through the foreign
office for $280,000,000. The claim
was subsequently written down to
just over $5,000,000 and the company's capital cut to $22,500,000."
Big Sum for Hydro-Electric
Rupert and Stewart
,There is a development program
of $1,500,000 on hand for the development of hydro-electric at Prince
Rupert and Stewart, according to
an interview given to the Montreal
Standard by A. J. Nesbitt, head of
the firm of Nesbitt, Thompson &
Company and president of Power
Corporation of Canada. This is
part of a huge program of development for the one company amounting to $50,000,000.

to successfully develop an ore tonnage. We hope that we shall be
as fortunate in the future and the
Herald will do its best to see that
it is so.

Opinion That  Smelter
May Be At Rupert
That the neighborhood of Prince
Rupert is likely to be the location
for the coast smelter to be built by
the Consolidated Mining & Smelting
Company is the opinion of a number
of interior mining men who arrived
in Prince Rupert recently. It is
stated by them that everything
points to this part of the coast as a
ocation. They say that the Consolidated is already interested in a
great many mines in the interior as
well as on Portland Canal and this
is the logical point where rail and
water meet and it would be accessible to all at the least possible cost.
They say it would have to be at
some point on navigable water and
on the C. N. R. main line. This
being a C. P. R. controlled company,
it would fit in well with the suggested move of the C. P. R. to interest themselves in the railway
running into Prince Rupert. The
probability is that it would be locat-
it the mouth of the Skeena River.

L. & L. Mine of Stewart
Will Increase
Capital
An extraordinary general meeting of L. & L. Consolidated Mines,
Limited, held on February 4 1929,
it was unanimously resolved that
the capital of the company be increased to $1,500,000, by the creation of 4,000,000 new shares of 25
cents each.
The president, John Hart, informed the meeting that he was at
present negotiating, through agents
with a company unknown to him,
with a view to the sale of control
,hf the L. & L. made possible by the
increase iu capital. If negotiations
developed satisfactorily the matter
would be brought before the shareholders for decision, he said.
The president also informed
shareholders that a very satisfactory report had been received from
the mines superintendent, H. T.
Thomey, at Stewart, dated January 28, in which he stated that at
355 feet from the portal a cross-out
in the No. 2 tunnel on the Rush
Columbia property had established
the width of the vein to he 10 feet,
highly mineralized, and that the
workings appear better than at any
time since he has been on the pr"o
perty.
World's Copper Production
The world's production of copper
during 127 years, since the beginning of the nineteenth century,
amounts to more than 40,000,000
tons, according to Scott Turner.
Director of the United States Bureau of Mines, Department of Commerce. In comparison, all previous
production since the beginning of
man's utilization of copper—estimated by some as less than a million
tons—is relatively insignificant.

A skin game.—Two young boys
living 90 miles northwest of Edmonton started a coyote farm In 1927
by digging young coyotes out of
tbe ground and confining them in
a pen. They got 140 young animals
and when their skins were mature
sold them for $12 each.
A southern packing plant specializes upon horse meat for shipment
to parts of Continentail Europe
where it is very popular. It has
been suggested that the nondesicript
range horses straying about Southern Alberta be herded for packing
purposes. It is a pity someone
could not figure out a similar way
of consuming some of the old motor
oars that are loose on the highways.
Twenty oil burners measuring
overall 97 feet in length and weighing 725,000 pounds have been ordered by the OanHdilan Pacific Railway
and will be in passenger and
freight service through the mountains this summer. Each of tihem

the lighter locomotives. They are
the largest in tho British Empire
and will revolutionize transportation in the west, it is predicted.
Victoria is havinij a mid winter

they play with bow and arrows on

The game is played the year round

The sea Is constantly productive
of tales of adventure. A recently
told story is that about Commander S. Robinson, O.B.E., of the
Canadian Pacific liner Empress of
France Who turned his ship into the
face of a hurricane and went BOO
miles out of his course to take aid
to injured seamen on a storm tossed
Japanese freighter. The great liner
waited beside the freighter, which
had been badly battered by the
huge waves and some members of
whose crew had been injured, but
found it impossible for boats to
pass between the two ships to convey a doctor. After waiting for
half a day the master of the Japanese ship* reported that he could
make port, and the Empress oi
France continued on her interrupted voyage.

MUSHER  MAD
"Quebec", says Sara Hamilton
V Birchall, in "Country Life",
"goes musher mad". It is so.
Every year, and this one more than
ever. Go to Quebec between February 21st and 23rd. All you will
hear is dog, dogs, huskies, mush-
ers, St. Goddard, Nolan, Chevrier,
Seppala!—a score of other names.
You will look at the big board in
the Chateau lobby whereon the
odds are shown, and you will wonder what it is all about. And
then, perhaps, an enthusiastic soul
will get you in a corner and tell
you how on the third day of the
last derby, the man who was considered in the running only for
second place was held up by a
freight train so long that his dogs
shivered and began to stiffen, but
won the 120 mile three day grind
by a short minute or so; and how
he was cheered and chaired, and
how they come, these mushers,
from all parts of the North Country, with their dogs and hounds
and huskies. You will pick your
dogs, Siberians, Alaskans, or just
plain dogs, and before the last
entrant has started on the first
lap on the first day, the fever will
have caught you. You will see
the first team drive panting home,
the next and the next; the heroes
of Nome, the trail dogs from Le
Pas, fuzzy animals who know the
Quebec woods trails and teams of
dogs bred, reared and trained for
this one great derby, dogs you
wouldn't want, worth hundreds;
dogs you could love, but who only
know a trainer's hand, and will
give allegiance but to him; dogs
in fours and fives and sixes, straining, eager, panting dogs with forty
miles behind them and eighty before. Then you too are musher
mad, and the rough, shaggy individual in fur and wool, whoso
moccasined feet had not yet fitted
into your own ideas of things becoming, is invested in the aura of a
hero and a knight.   You scream
his name as he mushes past. You
hold your breath as the minutes
tick before the next arrival. A
team of mastiffs, greyhounds or
mongrels, swings round a corner
into sight. Their time is close.
They have one minute in which to
reach the goal, and win the first
lap. You too, are musher mad.
You watch the bulletin boards with
excitement and wordily exchange
the gossip of the racing stables.
Then, when the great exhibition of
strength and endurance is over,
you can perhaps settle down to
enjoy Quebec herself and those
winter sports in which you are
permitted to take a personal if net
more strenuous part.

Big Missouri Showing
Up Good Under
Development
Stewart News
A Toronto dispatch says: Consolidated Smelters include tlie Big
Missouri as one of the groups being
prepared on the Pacific Coast to
supplement production from the
famous Sullivan mine at their
plant at Trail B. C. It is also mentioned as being very important iu
the treatment of ores from Coast
Copper, another "Smelters" holding
of importance in present plans
calling for a copper smelter.
Late in 1928, J. J. Warren president of Smelters: S. G. Blaylook.
general manager and W. M. Arch
ibald. chief engineer, visited the
Big Missouri property to inspect
development work. Great headway
has been made in the past five
months, and while Big Missouri's
importance originally lay iu the
extent of its silicious ores, reeent.
work has developed valuable high-
grade.
Information gathered close to
the management understands that
a new high-grade body six feet
wide has been encountered in underground work. Three thousand
feet of tunneling has been done.
An ore shoot opened up not long
after Smelters took hold of operations is reported to run 530 feet
long in the tunnel with $50 value
in gold and silver, with visible gold
in one short space. Stories circulating here are to the effect that
subsequent development has dis
closed six unusually rich pockets,
and buying of the stock was started by insiders who knew of tlie
turning to high grade. Spokane
was a heavy holder of Big Missouri
stock a month ago.
Newsprint Production Breaks
Records
Production of newsprint paper in
Canada during 1928 exceeded the
previous year by nearly 300,000
tons or 14 per cent., according to
the Newsprint Service Bureau which
gives the total for last year as
2,381,102 tons compared with 2,086-
949 tons in 1927 and 1,881,737 tons
in 1926.
