LaRose High Grade Ore
Body Increasing In
Width
The encountering of high grade
ore at the LaRose, the report of
which we published last week, continues to be the chief source of
interest in mining circles of the
Alice Arm district.
Reports from the mine yesterday
were to the effect that the raise is
still being continued, and that
there is now 2 feet of solid high grade
ore on the hanging wall, while the
balance of the face of the raise is
also composed of a good grade of
ore.
During the week a shot was put
in on the foot wall side of the raise
and from which unexpected results
were obtained. The ore exposed
being found to be impregnated
with native silver. This interesting
discovery- will be explored at a later
date, after the raise has been extended to the surface, which will be
some time during April.
" From present indications, there
is no question but that the LaRose
contains a considerable body of
high grade ore, and when it is
taken into consideration that the
property is only commencing to be
developed, it is reasonable to expect
that a much larger tonnage will be
proven up as development work is
oarried on.
This comparatively easy locating
of ore, on au undeveloped property
again brings out with remarkable
vividness the rich potential mineral
wealth of the Alice Arm district,. a
fact that can not be overlooked by
the big men of the continent, and
this year will without doubt see a
big revival of the mining industry
in the Alice Arm district.
Two Former Residents

every way a very delightful one
and long to be remembered by the

and the Service was impressive and
beautiful.
On Friday morning, His Grace
visited the Smelter and in the
afternoon addressed the Students
of the High School. On Saturday
morning the Hospital was visited.
Sunday was a very busy day for
His Grace. There was a celebration of the Holy Communion at 8
a.m., and the ohildren of the Sunday School were addressed at 11
a.m.
The Evening Servioe being
choral was exceptionally inspiring,
and was enhanced by the able
rendering of a vocal solo by Mr.
W. F. Eve and a violin solo by Mr.
W. Grant.
The sermon which was practical
and eloquent will not easily befor-
gotten.
The Church was filled to seating
capacity and many experienced the
disappointment of not being able
to find accomodation.
His Grace left' on Monday, on
the S. S. Cardena, for Stewart.
Before leaving he expressed the
great delight it had been to him to

than glad to visit it again.

Leasers at  Esperanza
Mine Shipping High
Grade Ore
The Esperanza mine which is
one of the most regular shipping
mines of the north coast, is again
producing high grade silver ore,
and the prospects at the mine for
further shipments in the immediate
future are exceedingly bright.
On Monday last seven tons of
high grade silver ore was shipped •
on the Cardena to Anyox Smelter.
This ore was shipped by Messrs. N.
Fraser. C. Lee and T. Calif, who
have a lease ou part of the workings. They are now engaged in
development work, which is necessary before more ore can be extracted.
They are driving a raise on the
No, 1 tunnel, which commences on
the Esperanza trail. They are also
driving a new tunnel on the work-,
ings where they extracted the ore.
They have driven 22 feet and
expect to encounter the ore when
au additional 8 feet has been driven.
This new tunnel was made necessary by a large amount of water
running in the old tunnel and
which could not be drained off.
Messrs. V. Stella, T. Mack and
associates, who have a lease on the
old workings at the mine, are.ship-
pingll tons of high grade ore ancT^
2 tons of low grade to Anyox smeltei' on Monday next. They have a
considerable amount of unsacked
ore at the mine and will make
another shipment of about 8 tons
before the end of the month. The
ore was extracted from the No. 3
tunnel, where they are working on
a vein from 2 to 7 inches wide,
but which is expected to increase in
width as work progresses. A
total of nine men are now working
at the mine.

Porter-Idaho Co. Elects
Local Men for
Officers
Portland Canal News
The outstanding feature of tlie
Porter Idaho Mining Company's
lirst annual general stockholders
meeting, held on the afternoon of
Jan. 20 in the lobby of the Fraser
Hotel, Hyder B. C, is the fact that
an entirely local board of directors
Was elected for the ensuing year,
the only member of the old board
re-elected being Clay Porter, president and managing director.
The new board consists of Clay
Porter, J. P. Hawkinson, Wm.
Bunting, Oren F. Hill, Joe Moriir,
(mine foreman) Walter C. Blanton
and W. R. Tooth.
About forty looal shareholders
were presbiit, and the keen interest
taken in affairs of the company
and developments at tlie mine was
shown in numerous discussions as
to past and future policy. The
managing director was sustained in
his method of working the mine
by an overwhelming majority, and
his annual report adopted with a
few minor amendments which he
accepted without protest.
The report, dated January 10,
shows that since April 15, 1050 feet
of work h-as been done, consisting
of 385 feet of crosscut, (50 feet of
winze, 60 feet of raise and the balance drifting.
Big Quantity of Lead
and Zinc Produced
at Trail Smelter
Ten per cent of the world's lead
output is produced at the Trail, B.
G, smelter operated by the Consol
idated Mining and Smelting company. This plant, which has been
shattering production records with
spectacular regularity, has just
finished it's banner year. Not
only did it furnish ten per cent of
the world's lead • supply, but also
seven per cent of the world's zinc.
From it's lead refinery, the last
stage of its lead process, 335 tons
of metal is being produced daily on
an average, while the zinc refinery,
which puts out an electrolytic
product from the leached roasts of
the zinc plant, produces 160 tpns
of zinc. Nearly all the ore originates at the immense Kimberly mine
in the'Bast Kootney, where a city of
0,000 population has sprung up in
the wake of the rapidly expanding
industry.
Mackinaw Coats Out of
Style This Winter
In Yukon
Keno, Yukon Territory, January
17.—Never in the history of the
North lias there been such a winter
and the old timers who made the
long mush outside to get a breath
of sunshine might just as well have
stayed in and saved their money.
Florida and Southern California
have nothing on the Yukon this
winter and mackinaw coats are a
drug on tlie market. With the
exception of one short spell when
the thermometer wont clown to
twenty below, it has been twenty-
five to thirty above ryid tho lakes
in this vicinity have not even frozen up, Trapping is almost at a
standstill, and most of tlie fur bearing animals will begin to shed their
winter coats soon, unless we get a
cold snap.
The open winter has been wonderful for prospecting and all kinds
of outside work and the Camp is
benefitting greatly by it. There
has been more work clone since the
close of navigation than before in
the history of Keno and the work
done and the showings that have
been demonstrated show this district to be the greatest silver and
lead section in the North.

Fire Threatened to Wipe
Out Town of
Stewart
Fire threatened to wipe out the
town of Stewart on Monday. As
it was, damage to the extent of
$5,000 was done there and it was
only the strenuous efforts of the
citizens that prevented the blaze
from spreading and possibly consuming the whole town. The fire
apparatus failed at the critical time
and the townspeople were forced to
form a bucket brigade to throw
water on buildings to prevent them
igniting from the intense heat.
The building that was destroyed
was that known as the Northern
Rooms, occupied by Mrs. Kelly
and with the Good Eats restaurant
below. The place was being overhauled and new people were about
to take over the restaurant. In
connection with the work a tub of
tar was being heated on the range
and this caught fire and very soon
the whole place was a mass of
roaring flames.
It was at once realized that the
building could not be saved so
efforts were centred on preventing
the spread of the fire to the liquor
vendor's store close by and to the
buildings across the street. Had
either of these caught, it is said
that the whole town would have
been wiped out of existence.
The fire took place shortly after
noon on Monday.
Mrs. Kelly suffered a loss amounting to about $2,000 and the
building and other furnishings
would be worth at least another
$3,000.

Pop," said little Willie, what are
ancestors?"  .
His father tried to explain by illustration. "I am one of your ancestors and your grandpa is
another.."
Willie pondered the matter over
for a minute and then floored his
father with this: "But, Pop why
folks brag about them?"
A geological map of the Barkerville
area, Cariboo district, British Columbia, has just been published, It is
based on field work done by W. A.
Johnson and W. L. Uglow, the former
having made a study of the unconsolidated surface deposits and the latter of
the bed-rock geology. It is published
on a scale of one mile to one inch and
covers an area of 250 square miles.
Copies may be had on application to
the director, Geological Survey, Ottawa, or 510 Winch Building, Vancou-
Advertising Rhymes
One step won't take you very far,
You've got to keep on walk-in-';
One word won't tell folks who you are
You've got to keep on talking;
An inch won't make you very tall,
You've got to keep on growing;
One little ad won't do it all,
You've got to keep them going.
A constant drop of water
Wears away the hardest stone;
By constant gnawing, Towser
Masticates the toughest bone;
The constant cooing lover
Carries off the blushing maid;
And the constant advertiser
Is the one who gets the trade.
Once only, it is said, did Sir F.
E. Smith, the new Lord Chancellor, lay himself open to a retort
from a witness he was oross-exam-
ining. It was in the divorce court
and the man in the witness-box
was a nervous little elderly clerk.
' Have you ever been married?"
began Sir Frederick.
''Yes, sir," stammered the clerk,
"once."
' Whom did yon marry?"
"A-b woman, sir,"
"Of course, of course," snapped
the future Lord Chancellor." Did
you ever hear of anyone marrying
a man?"
"Yes, sir—my sister did."

When the dust is on the counter
And the cobwebs on the shelf,
And there's no one in the store
But your own disheartened self:
And your stock is getting shelf-worn
And everything looks stale,
And bills enough are coming in
To make a baker pale,
Oh, then's a time a fellow is
A feelin' kind o' blue,
And is puzuling with the thought
Of the proper thing to do;
In such a situation but
One remedy applies—
If you want to get the customers
You've got to advertise-
