Engineer Pleased With
Esperanza Mine
J. E. MoCloskey, President of the
McCloskey Mining and Milling
Servioe Corporation Ltd. of Vanoouver, and who made an examination of the holdings of the Esperanza Mining Co. last week, was
very enthusiastic concerning the
potentialities of the mining properties of the above oompany.
Mr. MoCloskey took with him
last Friday 200 pounds of samples
for assay purposes. These samples
were taken from underground
workings, the Esperanza dump and
surface showings, Future operations depend on the ore values in
these samples. Mr. McCloskey
stated there was enough milling ore
in sight to operate a 20-ton mill for
several years. If the ore averaged
a value of $12.00 per ton it could
be profitably handled, aud he expeoted the average to be considerably higher than this figure.
There are, be said, at present
three potential mines on the Esperanza ground. One at the old
Esperanza workings, one on the
Alice, and one higher up the hill
above the Esperanza workings.
There is. no doubt he stated that a
large body of ore exists iu the Esperanza hill and a close geological
study will undoubtedly be instrumental in locating it.
The MoCloskey Company are
experts in the mining and milling
business and have several mills already operating profitably iu various parts of the province.
Bonfire Picnic By The
Clear Water
A bonfire picnic was held at
Clearwater Creek, Alioe Arm on
Saturday evening last, when a
large number of Alioe Arm people
and Anyox visitors attended. It
proved to be a very jolly affair
and the unanimous opinion was,
that another should be held at an
early date.
A big bonfire blazed and crackled
merrily on the beaoh as the daylight commenced to fade away.
Following the consumption of lots
of hot coffee and doughnuts, community singing was indulged in,
during whioh Rev. A. Abraham rendered several solos, and Mrs. Abraham gave a recitatson. Darkness
had descended before the party
broke up for home and as the
string of oars headed towards town
flashes of lightning foretold that
the homeward journey had been
made none too soon. All oar owners of the town supplied transpor
tation gratis, which was appreciated.
Angus D. Cavers Passed
Away On Friday
Body Taken South Monday
A gloom was oast over the town
of Anyox on Friday the 27th. when
Angus Douglas Cavers, second son
of Mr. and Mrsi T. W. Cavers,
passed away after a lingering illness. The deceased, who was
twenty-five years of age, had resided in Anyox forfiveyears, being
employed by the Granby Company
in various clerical capacities. He
was born at Copperhill, Tennessee,
although his parents are Canadians
and prior to coming to Anyox he
lived in Eastern Canada.
A tall upstanding figure, the de'
ceased young man was prominent
in tennis circles up to the time of
his illness, aud was most popular
Beside his parents he leaves two
sisters, Flora and Marion, and a
brother William. The body was
conveyed to Vancouver on the Catala last Monday, for interment in
the Mountain View Cemetery.
The heartfelt sympathy of the
j whole community was extended to
tiie bereaved family in their loss
and a great number of floral tributes from friends at Anyox were
laid on the grave.
Wolf Cubs Will Go Into

August 4th. has been decided as
the date for the Cub camp.
The boys will go into camp at
Larcom Island for 5 days arid will
return Thursday the 9th.
A dance will be held in the Gym,

the half of it, for believe it or not
the self-same orchestra which made
such a splendid success of last year's
event will again be doing their stuff.
The "Strollers" traveling band
has again agreed to play for the
Cubs and the popularity of these
up to-date musicians assures a real
The dance will be held Friday
August 3rd. The Cubs will sell
tickets and hope for the same hearty

A very oreditable record for
Alice Arm students.
Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Warwick
Home From Long Trip
With a coat of tan that even an
Indian might envy, Mr. and Mrs.
George Warwick are home again
after a trip to Vancouver in their
18 feet 6 inch gasboat "Sheila."
They experienced fine weather all
the way and had a most enjoyable
trip throughout. Their daughter
Daphne was left at Port Simpson
on the way down and picked up on
the homeward voyage. They left
Anyox July 2nd., arrived at Vancouver on the Hth., departing on
the 19th. and reaching Prince Rupert on the 27th. After a stopover
of two days they set out for Port
Simpson and home.
Allowing the Oddfellows only two
scratch hits and these only in the
last inning, Elks waltzed throngh
to the 1934 Championship of the
Anyox Baseball League. It was
not so much a victory for the club,
as it was for their star pitcher who
has dominated this League ever
since his debut. Facing the Oddfellows with a strong and complete
team on the field, and supported by
the weakest team fhe Antlered
Herd have presented this season,
he simply smothered his opponents.
Lazorek was good but his mates
simply could not find Chenoski at
all. In fact it appeared that Nick
bore down with almost unusual vehemence. That veteran of many
campaigns,      Jack   Cody,     came
through with two timely hits.

Many Entries For Handicap
Golf Championship
Thirty-four members of the Anyox
Golf Club have entered their names
for the Handicap Championship
Tournament. The winner of this
event wins the Charles Bocking
Trophy. There is also a prize for
the runner up.
The following were southbound
passengers on Friday's boat: S.
Thomas, Gus. Larson, R. Tinnion,
J. Bond, M. Knezevich, JackDoreen
and M. McCloskey.
Our neighbors to the south are
visiting Canada in large numbers
this year. Favored points in the
west seem to be Jasper and the
northern B. C. ports. The Jasper
Park centre reports the largest
number of American visitors for
many years'. Another favored run
is the trip to Skagway, thence to
Whitehorse or Ben-ma-Chree on
Tagish Lake. On the Prince Rupert reaching Anyox Friday last
was a party of 45 ladies and 4 gentlemen from Pennsylvania, enroute
to Stewart and thence back to Vancouver.
The Dynamiters Fail In
Crucical Test
Elks Confident of Penant
Sid Peters Again Wins Golf
The 36-Hole Open Golf Championship was recently played between H. R. Taylor and Sid. Peters,
the latter winning the match by six
holes up and five to go.
The game of July 24th. was a
mighty important one for the Hidden Creek Dynamiters, but it was
just another ball game to that im-
perturable Nick Chenoski. This
loss eliminated the Miners as winners and reduced their chances to a
remote mathematical possibility for
a three way tie.
Windle pitched fine ball over the
entire route but was supported by
only two scattered hits. The Elks
did not do much hitting but they
bunched what they did get. Rowland delivered a beautiful three
base hit, and Nick Chenoski poled
out a lovely double.

A treasure hunt in which everyone took part was a feature of the
program. Mr. Jack Pinckney was
the winner, but disqualified himself
on constitutional grounds, handing
the treasure, which was a 2 lb. box
of chocolates, to Mr. Kirk Falconer
who was second. The boys all
having lady partners the chocolates,
eventually became the property of
Miss Dixie Taylor.
Everyone visited the sawmill lake
during the course of the treasure

Swimming was indulged in spasmodically all evening by various
members of the party, who declared
the water warm in spots.
After the hunt a fire was built on
the beach and refreshments were
served. The appeased voices of
the inner person were raised in
song and a benign moon looked
down upon the happy scene of
young people grouped sitting and
lying on the beach around the fire
while, the strains of "Love's Old
Sweet Song" floated over the water.
The party broke up at 11:30

Twenty Years Ago Today
The World Stood Aghast
Twenty years ago today Great
Britain was on the verge of declaring war on Germany. France,
Russia, Germany and Austria had
already commenced hostilities, and
their armies were pouring towards
their frontiers. The suddenness
and rapidity of the declarations of
war by the large European nations
stunned the whole world, and well
it might, for no one could fortell
what changes would ensue and
what suffering would be caused.
The war was jubilantly hailed by
the people of Germany and Austria
as a war of conquest, but their
hopes of enslaving all Europe and
later the entire world were shattered
and at the end of the war the
"balance of power" in Europe remained undisturbed. This balance
of European power is something that
has never yet been violated. Several nations have tried to be supreme rulers of the continent but
have failed. Germany was the last
to try. She, however, has not evidently learnt a lesson from the bitter experiences of 1914-18, and her
belligerent attitude of the past few
weeks shows that under the leadership of the infamous Hitler she is
ready to again strike when a favorable opportunity offers. Meanwhile
the nations of the world are arming
as never before, and history has
shown that an international armament race ends in war when one
nation or group considers it has an
advantage over their opponents.
We have not yet recovered from
the last war, in fact the tangle is
getting worse and. another war
waged on the magnitude of the
1914-18 slaughter may wreck our
civilization as we know it at present.
Granby Co. Had Loss
For Last Quarter
Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting and Power Co. Ltd,, reports for quarter ended June 30,
1934, loss of $148,757 after taxes,
depreciation, etc., but before depletion, and net loss after depletion of
$278,257. This compares with loss
of $179,883 before depletion and
net loss of $307,736 after depletion
in preceding quarter and loss of
$184,563 before depletion and net
loss of $302,912 after depletion in
June quarter of previous year.
For six months ended June 30 loss
was $328,640 before depletion while
net loss after depletion amounted to
$585,993. This compares with loss
of $343,137 before depletion and
net loss after depletion of $527,7101
in first half of 1933.
War For Copper Market
In Europe Seems
A copper war between American
"Blue Eagle" producers and African
interests is envisioned by European
observers while June trade figures
showed improvement in the statistical position of the industry.
Advices from London indicate the
"coming copper war" between
American code producers and Africans engrosses the gloomy attention
of the market and that sentiment
generally is bearish. This is attributed to the pressure ot American
surplus copper upon European mar-l i1
kets which African low-cost producers feel they have marked out for
themselves. Export of American
copper during the first four months
of 1934 soared to 73,584 short tons
compared with 36,687 short tons
during the corresponding 1933
Much of these increased exports
have gone to nations which formerly
bought heavily from African interests. It has been estimated that
imports of American copper to
Germany and Holland were nine
times as much as in 1933, to Belgium three times as much, while
French imports increased 75 per
cent, and United Kingdom takings
50 per cent.
The only movement from African
producers thus far has been a scaling down in prices to European
markets with the result that metal
may be purchased c.i.f. London,
Hamburg and Havre at slightly less
than 7^3 cents per pound,compared
with the United States "Blue
Eagle" price of 9 cents, the widest
spread in many years.
The unsettled situation in Germany
also has acted as a depressent.
There have been reports that Germany has resold copper imports because of inability to pay.
World producers also have failed
in efforts to control production
through negotiations, and a recent
report from the Katanga interests
said its output would be stepped up
Trade figures show that world
stocks of refined copper declined
approximately 72,000,000 pounds
in June, the largest reduction in any
month since July, 1933, when they
were reduced  76,000,000 pounds.
In June, 1933, the reduction was
about 75,000.000 pounds,while the
May 1934 stocks dipped 58,000,000
Most reduction took place in
North and South America, most

Visiting Geologist Says
Higher Prices For
Gold and Silver
Capt. N. Evans-Atkinson arrived
at Alice Arm on Monday in order to
make an examination of the holdings of the Esperanza MiningCo.,
which includes a geological survey,
He is leaving today for the south.
Capt. Atkinson is a native of Australia and his .first mining experience was gained in the western
gold fields of that country. Later he
was connected with the Kolar gold
mines in India and during the past
fourteen years has spent his time
in the mining fields of Northern
Ontario, Manitoba and North West
Territories. This summer he has
spent considerable time in the Great
Bear Lake district, also the Barkerville and Bridge River districts.
Capt. Atkinson is optimistic regarding the future prices of silver
and gold. It is his opinion that the
price of gold and silver will steadily
increase during the next few years,
and there is not the slightest doubt
but that silver will increase pro-rata
For every ounce of gold in the
world there ar IS ounces of silver,
and on this basis one can see the
enormous quantity of silver which
the ever-increasing population of
the world will require.
Until very recently the production
of gold was neglected, but at present every effort is being made to
increase production to the detriment of silver. This neglect1 of
silver, the metal-mate to gold, is a
mistake which will shortly be realized, and silver will again be a favorite metal. It is very probable
that silver will be eventually stabilized at around $1.00 an ounce.
Just as the sun and moon, relatively speaking, are a part of our
solar system, so are gold arid silver
a part of our monetary system.
Elks' Beach Safe For
A visit to Elks' Beach on any
nice day is now well worth your
time. The feeling of safety that
now surrounds this beautiful place
reminds one of the beaches to the
south of us where every precaution
is taken for the safety of those who
visit the beaches for bathing purposes. Our own Life Guard was a
long felt want and due credit must
be given to the Sea Rovers and also
to the Anyox Community League
for their efforts in bringing same to
pass. The several Sea Rovers that
have already served as Life Guard,
are to be complimented for the
splendid way in which they have
carried out this duty. The parents
of Anyox may rest assured, that
when their children visit Elks'
Beach they will have the very best
of care.
