which left the Millmen on the long
end of a 33-29 score.
The teams were: Concentrator:
Meagher, 8; McLeod, 11; McDougall, 12; McConnachie; McKay;

Tunnels At Esperanza Are Crosscutting
Large Bodies of Good Milling Ore
The Esperanza mine, situated
within twenty minutes walk of Alice
Arm, and which has, for many years
been a steady producer of high
grade .silver ore, is destined to become a shipping mine of considerable proportions in the future.
Heretofore only high grade veins
have been developed and the ore
sacked and shipped. Development
work done this winter, however,
throws a different complexion on
the future of the mine, a big body
of milling ore having been developed.
A tunnel was commenced above
the old workings, and after driving
a distance of 52 feet the foot wall of
an ore ledge was encountered, which
has been crosscut a distance of 48
feet. Waste was then encountered,
but the tunnel was continued, with
the result that ore was again picked
up after driving six feet and is still
being crosscut.
Tlie whole ore body is of a good
milling grade, and is expected to
average from $45.00 to $50.00 per
ton. One sample sent out assayed
$9 gold and 61 oz. silver per ton.
An average sample taken along the
crosscut has been sent out for assaying but returns have not been received.
This tunnel is at an elevation
300 feet above the trail. The depth
obtained on the ore is about 150
feet. The ore ledge has an angle
of about 45 degrees, dipping into
the hill.
The ore will be drifted on to the
south and later a lower tunnel will
be driven to obtain greater depth.
In addition to the above important discovery, ore has been encountered in the new lower tunnel.    This
tunnel is being driven to tap all the
ore veins on the property at greater
depth. The ore was struck a distance of 155 feet from the portal.
It is of good milling grade, and has
been driven into for a distance of
six feet and the face still in ore.
This tunnel is being pushed as rapidly as possible in order to ascertain
its width.
A concentrating mill, to take care
of all secondary ore, including the
dumps, has been mooted for some
time. The new discoveries of large
bodies of milling ore now make it
absolutely necessary that a mill be

For almost ten years following
the close of the war, the copper
market was stagnant. Today it is
buoyant, and the outlook for the
red metal was never brighter in
history. During those lean years,
the copper companies, including
particularly The Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power
Co. Ltd. found the going tough.
They however, persevered and are
now reaping their reward. Copper,
which until recently, was the black
sheep of the metal family is again
the fair-haired favorite. Copper
stocks that were lifeless have risen
to record high levels and are in
great demand. The stabilizing of
the present satisfactory price of
copper is due to a large extent to
big producing companies, who have
advertised their goods and also
have used other means in securing
a fair price for their product. The
success of their efforts in the future
will mean a big expansion of the
copper mining industry in Canada
and especially British Columbia.
During the past year more copper
was produced in the province than
in any previous year. It is safe to
predict that should the present
price be maintained for any reasonable length of time that last year's
output will be doubled within the
next few years. It is, however, a
question in well informed mining
circles as to whether the present
price can be maintained when the
big deposits of Africa and Canada
are fully developed and marketing
their product. It is probable that
copper, now it is more widely
known regarding its indestructibility
will be used with greater frequency.
Whatever happens in the future,
at the present time copper is the
favorite metal, and will never again
be allowed to drop below a price
that makes its mining unprofitable.
Many a man has gone up in the
world through treading on a banana skin.

During the past two years Mr

Does Not Believe in Eliminating Mining Taxes
The Manitoba deficit of $500,000
for the past year shows the folly of
the Dominion and Provincial Governments in abandoning revenues
from such important mineral deposits as Flin Flon and Sherrit-Gor-
don. The time will come when this
policy will bring down on the heads
of the politicians responsible for it
the condemnation of the electorate.

in that time has produced some
50,000 tons of ore valued in total
at about $15,000,000. Of this
tonnage, a third was in mill concentrates recovered with modern
llotation process at the Treadwell
Yukon mill on Keno Hill, 40 miles
from the town of Mayo. The remainder was in hand sorted or
crude ore having a value ranging
on the average between $200 and
$300 a ton.

New York Copper Sales
Exceed Previous
Engineering and Mining Journal, December 29th.
The various factors in the copper
industy that had predicted a long
period of inactive demand following
the heavy autumn buying find an
entirely different situation facing
them today, for, despite the presence
of the Christmas holidays in the
week ending today, sales of copper
to domestic consumers total several
thousand tons in excess of the previous weekly record established
early in September. Apparently the
re-entry of several of the largest
consuming interests in the trade,
served as the spark which started
the conflagration, though a distinct
improvement in buying on foreign
account has 119011 a signified factor.
When consideration is given to the
holidays and half-holidays during
the past week, the distribution of
sales per business day exceeds 13,-
500 tons and the explanation for today's advance in price to 16^c, is
readily discernable. No sales at the
higher price were made until today,
although several producers withdrew from the market at the lower
figure on Monday. A larger proportion of the sales has been made
for March delivery—in several instances April has been specified; so
the tendency for forward buying
has been decidedly marked. Copper
Exporters, Inc., maintain their price
at 16){c. c. i. f. usual European
destinations, though it is expected
that announcement of an advance
in price to conform with the usual
}(c. differential over the domestic
price will be made tomorrow. The
leading brass company announced
an increase in price of its various
copper and brass products today.

"Once upon a time there were

went travelling ln nice big boxes."
A parody on A. A. Milne's famous
nursery rhyme is inspired by. a
shipment of sixty black and silver
foxes who passed through the Windsor Street Station recently en rout*
to Switzerland from Calgary. They
were "under the wing" of the Canadian Pacific Express, who saw
that the animals got their diet of
raw meat, regularly.
The case of a motorist being
stricken with "buck fever" and putting his car into the ditch in bis
excitement has been reported from

Nipigon River Bungalow Camp and
Fort Arthur the motorist was startled when a deer appeared on the
road before him. Whether he tried
to chase the animal or forgot he
was at the wheel, he does not state,
but when he recovered his senses
he and his car were in the ditch.
Little damage was done.
The building of more than WO
miles of new branch lines, with 71
new stations and shipping points
sums up in brief the construction
programme of the Canadian Pacific
Railway In Western Canada during
the past summer, according to D.
C. Coleman, Vice-President, Western Lines. By this means hundreds of farmers had been brought
much closer to transportation facilities, and thousands of acres of
rich agricultural land had been
made much more attractive trom
the settlers' viewpoint.
"I can say, without any hesitation, that Canada is the best country in the world for farming at the
present time. It has greater possibilities, and there are indications
that there is greater stability and
prosperity than can be found in
any other country," said Dr. E. S.
Archibald, director in charge of the
Dominion Experimental Farm at
Ottawa, addressing the Young Men's
Canadian Club In Montreal. Dr.
Archibald said the crops In Canada are worth $1,167,000,000, which
alone was equal to the fisheries,

The province of Alberta generally
will receive more game fish than
ever before, was the opinion of J.
A. Robb, superintendent of fish culture of the Department of Marine
and Fisheries, who was a recent
visitor to Calgary. The whiteflsh
hatchery Just opened by the Dominion Government ln Lesser Slave
Lake, will help the commercial fisheries, he said, while sport In the
neighbourhood of Banff, the Rocky
Mountain resort, will be greatly
improved by the advanced fry and
flngerllng game fish that have been
placed In the streams. The hatch-
»rv at Banff, he added, will be exuded slightly.

Many Delegations Press
Claims on Provincial
Victoria, B. C, January 7th.—
It is all very well to prophesy that
the Session of the new provincial
parliament opening on the 22nd.
will be an exceedingly short one;
that statment is a hardy perennial,
and while governments propose
other forces dispose. From the
volume of business in sight and
still growing steadily, it would
seem a well-nigh impossible feat to
clear the programme earlier than
All Fools' Day.
The Government necessarily has
its own important additions to
legislation already drafted and
tentatively threshed out behind the
guarded doors of the Executive
Chamber. This legislation nevertheless still has to be caucused, and
it undoubtedly will be considerably
added to as a result of representations advanced and to be advanced
by substantial interests, spokesmen
for which already are descending
upon the Capital in shoals, to the
vexation of the Ministry and the
delight of the Empress management—this being otherwise a dull
season in hoteldom.
During the current week delegations wil! be heard from hither and
from yon, of varying degrees of influence and importance. Listening
to their pleas will occupy the times
of the Cabinet almost to the exclusion of all else extra-departmental.
The British Empire Service
League apparently will not require
over-time to convince public men
already in agreement that veterans
of the Great War (qualifications
being equal) should constitutionally
enjoy preference j as prospective
appointees to the' provincial services. Locomotive engineers and
firemen, who "have a date" with
the Premier and his colleagues for
the selfsame day as the League, intend to present suggestions for betterment of the Workmen's Compensation Act, which Hon. Mr.
Hinohliffe in particular has made a
special study and which in any
event was due for re-opening and
radical amendment in certaiii
directions broadly indicated by
Conservative constructive criticism
in the last parliament.
Silverado  at   Stewart
Promises Big Mine
Local interest has been aroused
by the work that is progressing ou
the Silverado property, Premier-
controlled, located within sight of
the camp.
Premier has ample supplies on
the hill to keep its crew working
there throughout the winter and
is developing the series of high
grade veins on this property by a
tunnel approaching from the south.
There is thought to be a good
chance of opening some rich shipping ore in these veins. Although
much has still to be learned about
it, Silverado has come to be as well
regarded as Porter and Prosperity,
its nearby neighbors on the Marmot.
