Meeting of Esperanza
Directors Successful
A meeting of the Directors of
the Esperanza Mines Syndioate
was held at Prinoe Rupert on Saturday, and was attended by Norman Fraser, who is in charge of
operations at the mine.
The meeting was very successful,
and all plans were made for a reorganization. When this has been
completed, enough capital is expeoted to be available for an expansion of operations at the mine.
Mining of ore is being oarried on
at the mine. During the week,
Mr. Fraser states that an ore vein
three feet wide was encountered in
the Baldy tunnel, after running a
drift 65 feet. Ou the hanging
wall of the vein is one foot of high
grade silver ore carrying native
silver. It is expected that values
will considerably inorease when a
few more feet has been drifted on
the vein.
North Star Tunnel In
Fifty Feet
J.   Strombeek    arrived    down
from   the North   Star yesterday
evening.   He will not return dur-
the present   winter.     He  states
that the tunnel has been driven a
distance of 50 feet, and that the
work is being carried on.
Power Company Ready to
Start Operations
The Alice Arm Power and Mining Syndicate is ready to go ahead
with their undertaking of providing Alice Arm with light, power
and water. This information was
received during the week, and as
soon as snow is off the ground surveying will be commenced. The
Syndicate is receiving strong sup
port in Prince Rupert.
Leaves to Get Married in
F. P. Brown left Anyox on
Thursday for Vanoouver. He will
be married there on the 16th. The
bride being Miss McGiliviary, who
has been on the Anyox Hospital
staff for some time.
Outlook for Coming Year Full of
Promise for Alice Arm Mining
The past year did not deal unkindly with the people of Alioe
Arm and the new year is full of
While all our hopes were not
realized in 1927 in regard to mining transactions and development,
good steady progress was made,
which enhanced the value of several properties.
The present year will witness increased activity for the mining industry if present plans mature and
there is no reason why they should
Plans for the formation of a new
company, which will include the
old stockholders, to operate the
Esperanza mine on a much larger
scale, are now well under way.
To date, this property has only
been operated by hand drilling,
but increased capital will make it
possible for the installation of a
power plant and later on a concentrating mill.
It has been stated by the management of the Torio Mines Co.
Ltd. that their concentrating mill
will be put into operation during
the early summer. It is to be
hoped that this will be done. The
successful operation of the Toric,
on a dividend paying basis will do
a great deal towards enoouraging
oapital to the distriot,
The Wolf mine, operated by J.
Fiva and associates) promises to be
iu continual operation throughout
the year. Steady ore shipments
being made to the smelter.
The Silver Cord, Le Roy and
Eagle, operated by the British Colonial Securities Co. Ltd. will, according to present plans all receive
increased development work during the present year. The Silver
Cord is being operated throughout
the winter.
The Keystone Mining Co. plan
to extend development work on
the Keystone property as early in
the summer as possible. Consider
able underground work was carried
out last year, and another season's
work will undoubtedly locate large
bodies of ore.
The North Star, under bond to
J. Strombeek and G. Pearson is
one of the four properties that is
being operated this winter. Work
will be carried on throughout the
coming year, and it is expected
that ore shipments of considerable
size will be made before another
year enters the threshold.
Molybdenum will be among the
metals produced in Alice Arm this
year, if plans already under way
mature. It is the aim of G. W.
Bruggy and Wm. McFarlane. owners of the Beach Molybdenum, to
put this promising property in operation. It is ideally located, has
lots of ore, and success is almost
certain in the mining aud milling
this valuable ore.
A bond was recently taken on
the Success Group by the Alice
Arm Power and Mining Syndicate.
They will develop this property
during the coming summer, and
also install a power, light and
water system for the town of Alice
Arm. Power will also be supplied
to nearby mines.
In addition to the above-mentioned properties it is almost certain that negotiations now under
way will be instrumental in putting several additional properties
on the operating list. Thus, the
outlook for the present year is uot
too bad. Alice Arm is stepping
along, not at a headlong rate, to
be sure, but nevertheless, steady
progress is being made, whioh will
in a very short time induce one or
moreofthebig mining companies
to enter the field and conduct operations on a colossal scale.

The Conservative Vancouver Daily
Province dealt in the following optimistic terms about the present
prosperous condition of British Columbia and the hopeful outlook for
British Columbia begins the new
year with the satisfaction of knowing that her principal industries are
in a healthy and promising condition, that their output in 1927 was
approximately equal to if not greater than that of any previous year,
and that the outlook for 1928 is excellent.
Lumbering in its various branches
is still our leading industry. It furnishes a living to about a quarter of
our population and contributes a
substantial amount each year to the
provincial treasury.
After lumbering comes agriculture. The farms of the province, it
is estimated, yielded 572,000,000 in
1957, a round million moife than in
the preceding year. We have the
advantage in our farming of having
our eggs in many baskets, and it
usually happens that if one basket

A hammer is a most/useful and
necessary tool in the hands of a
carpenter or anyone who has a
legitimate use of it. With it you
may drive a nail or bruise a finger.
When one needs a hammer he
needs it badly. It is really a
household necessity. To bring to
the hammer is a term often used
when one is compelled to sell at
auction his personal property.
The carpenter then and the auctioneer as well use the hammer.
The miner uses a hammer to drive
his drill. The circus man uses a
hammer to drive the stakes for the
tent ropes. The stone-cutter uses
it to guide his chisel. , There is the
riveting hammer, the tack hammer,
blocking hammer, brick-layer's
hammer, steam hammer, trip hammer. Hammers of stone are still
found in the relics of autiquity and
are still in use among barbarians.
There is the piano hammer, the
gun hammer and the dental hammer; the blacksmith's hammer, and
the forger's hammer. There are
more kinds of hammers than anything else in the world. In mythology there is Thor's hammer by
the throwing of which thunder and
lightning was cansed. Everyone
of these hammers, even the mythological one, has some good and
legitimate purpose, but there is just
one hammer in the world that is
the opposite of all these others,
and that is the hammer which the
professional knocker wields with
such malicious and fatal results.
That is one hammer which should
forever be cast out from the line of
ancestral hammers of fame and
dignity. If you are toting a hammer like this, throw it away.
Bury it so deep that you will have
to go around on the other side of
the globe to resurrect it. This
kind of a hammer should never be
used. The man who wickedly
and wantonly wields the knocker's
hammer should be forever silenced
with a well directed blow on the
head with a sledge hammer.

Canadian Gold Values
May Surpass Coal
Gold in some form is found in
every province of Canada except
Prince Edward Island, and in point
of value it is next to coal, the most
important mineral product of tlie
Dominion. Present indications
indeed, point to the possibility of
the value of Canada's gold output
surpassing even that of her coal
within tlie next few years. Formerly British Columbia.and Yukon
Territory were the most productive
regions, but new discoveries and
recent developments have now put
Ontario in the lead. Recent developments in Quebec indicate that
this province may also become an
important producer.

Another  Mineral   Record
A new high record for mineral
production in Canada was set in
1927, when the value of the output
reached $241,773,000, marking a
gain of $1,330,000 over the previous
year's record total of §1240,438,123.
according to the official estimate
compiled by the Dominion Bureau
of Statistics iu a preliminary report.
New output records for all time
were established in 1927, in gold,
copper, lead, zinc, cement, gypsum
and lime, and in the value of natural gas and petroleum.
"Looking backward over the year
just closed, the student must be impressed with the magnificent progress made by the mining industry
of the Dominion," states the survey.
"Never before has the outlook for
the future appeared brighter."

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored "mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without oharge on application •
to the Department of Mines, Viotoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey

Bureau, nearly all lines of manufacturing steadily increased their production during 1927, and the books
of the Workmen's Compensation

Manufacturing is important for a

Fishing is another of our important

it yielded $28,000,000, a little more

Hunting Army to Invade North Woods
The enormoiiB increase in the sport
of deer hunting has resulted not in
the vanishing of the deer but in the
increase of deer. This is not as
mysterious as it sounds. The more
men penetrate the wilds the fewer
wolves remain. The driving out of
wolves has been the greatest factor
in the increase of deer. But there is
another factor almost as important
as the wolves. The invasion of tho
backwoods by an army of enlightened
sportsmen has demanded a much
stricter arid more sporting regard for
game laws than was the custom sorr.e
years ago. Destroyers of deer whether
human or animal, have to deal with
a strong and more or less organized
public opinion.
Good Hunting News
Reassuring news has been coming
in daily to the offices of the general
tourist department of the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company from operators of camps, guides outfitters and
others who report that all signs point
to an unusually promising hunting
season for the current year.
Mike Bates sends down word from
his camps at Metagama, Ontario,
that if the hunters don't get their deer
and moose this season they'll have
nothing to blame but their poor
shooting. He says that moose are
very plentiful and expects it to be
a great year in every way.
From Schreiber Ontario where John
Handel, outfitter has been operating
the reports are just as reassuring. |
Handel reports that the game has
increased in the Superior Game Re-
CmLMNG thb moose
serve, south of the C.P.R. line and the
surplus has crossed to the north of
the tracks offering good hunting. He
says that caribou are roaming the
woods in increased numbers, and as
the C.P.R. line is the north boundary
of the game preserve hunters don't
have to go very far for their quarry.
The news from Sheehan'a camp at
Lake Penage south west of Sudbury
is also music to the hunters ears.
Deer here are reported to be very
plentiful and sport should be excellent.
Reports turned in by guides of the
Ogilvie Bros Camps on the Tobique
River, N.B. sue to the effect that
deer, though very plentiful last
season, show signs of much greatei
increase. The same word comes fron.
A. D. Thomss, at South Milford in
the Kedgemskooge district.

Should you follow the deer with
your sights or set your sights ahead
of the deer and let him come on them?
Well, the army training which men
got overseas taught them to consider
the second system the letter. Lewis
gunners firing on moving targets \, ere
taught to throw a burst ahead of the
mark, to see where it struck, and
then let the target move onto the
line of fire. Trying to follow a jumping deer in all Its excited movement
i» harder, probably, than trying to
guess a spot that the doer will pass-
say an opening in the bniBh on which
to have time to lay your sights ul arp
and true. For casual shooters to get
a little practice with their rlf.es a
method of letting the deer n n on
lights already set is regarded ua tho
most successful.
