Much Business Disposed
Of At Community
League Meeting
At Wednesday night's meeting of
the Anyox Community League
Council, President Macintyre announced the chairmen of the League
Committees for the coming year.
Membership, Mr. Deeth; Recreation and Sport, J. L. Stewart; Entertainment, Choral and Dramatic,
C. Harmon; Home and School,
Rev. Mr. Brayfield; Mr. Todd; as
Chairman of the Forum Committee,
will be especially interested in improving the Library and Reading
Room service, while Mr. Watson
will give particular attention to the
commercial enterprises of the
League. These Chairmen will select from the league membership
persons who are capable and desirous of assisting to direct the activities of the League. There is, therefore, plenty of scope for members to
become actively engaged in com
muntty work.
Lecture Topic Is Chosen
With the expressed opinion of the
P. T. A. to guide them, the Councillors decided to request the lecture
on "Citizenship and Public Opinion"
as the Topic for Professor Boggs to
speak on here next May. Dr.
Boggs is one of the Provincial University's most popular speakers
and it is a matter for congratulation
that his many activities will not
prevent this excursion into the
Preparing  for   League  of
Nations Day
Monday, April 16th. has been
designated as a day ot nation-wide
observance of the League of Nations
activities and the progress of the
movement for international understanding and world peace. A committee of representatives from patriotic and social organizations will
shortly meet to prepare plans suitable for celebrating the day. Mr.
. C. Harmon of the Council was
designated by reason of his chairmanship as the League's delegate
to the meeting.
Will Operate Refreshment
When the Bluebird Cafe closes
its doors at the end of April the
Community League will be ready to
cater to a part of the trade in ice
cream, light lunches, and after-
theatre refreshments. Furniture
and up-to-date equipment will shortly be installed in the quarters adjoining the pool room. There is
still, however, an opening for a
restaurant to cater to the trade
which this new venture and the
various mess organizations cannot
Tennis Club Plans Early
The Community League Council
are prepared to help the Tennis
Club to begin the season as soon as
possible. An attempt will be
made to get rid of the snow now
lying on the courts, probably by
turning on the fire hose as steel
shovels would spoil the surface.
The Council hopes to make
tennis a real community sport by
doing all in its power to keep the
club dues down to a figure which
will be within the reach of all.
At the same time ensuring that
the club will be self-supporting.
As in the paRt, every effort will be
District's Sympathy For
Fire Victims
The fire tragedy, which occurred
at Copper Mountain last week,
which resulted in the loss of nine
lives, four of the victims being
former Anyox residents, cast a
gloom over the whole district last
week end. James Mackay, Pat
Dermody, Dan McPherson and W.
Upjohn were all well known in
Anyox, where they were held in
high esteem. The two former each
leaves a widow and family, and
resided in Anyox for a number of
years. The sympathy of everyone
is extended to their relatives in
this time of sorrow aud suffering.
ln addition to the above who
perished in the flames, two former
residents of this distriot were seriously injured, and their recovery
is doubtful. They are G. W.
(Slim) Nelson, who followed the
occupation of barber in Anyox and
later at Alice Arm, and Frank
Mealy, well known in baseball and
sport circles of Anyox. It was reported locally during the week
that Slim Nelson has expired.
Awake Again On Run
The launch Awake will resume the
Alice Arm and Anyox run next
Tuesday. The former sohedule will
be adhered to. She will leave
Alice Arm each Tuesday, Thursday
and Saturday returning the same
day.   She will leave Alice Arm at

made to encourage the ohildren to
become proficient at the game.
Player's Insurance To Be
The Counoil has instructed the
Secretary to make inquiries as to
the feasibility of undertaking a
group insurance scheme for those
who take part iu the athletic contests sponsored by the League.
Some hardships have been occasioned in the past through injuries
received in sports. Tlie principle
of group insurance might very well
be undertaken upon a more inclusive basis.
Gymnasium  Insurance
Adjustment Pending
President Macintyre reported to
the Council that negotiations regarding '.he insurance of the gymnasium were proceeding satisfactorily. The matter is receiving the
personal supervision of the General
Superintendent. The gymnasium
was insured under the blanket policy
carried by the Granby Company
who have in the past defrayed the
premiums. The amount to be received will probably be in the neighbourhood of ninety-five hundred
dollars, depreciation and present
construction costs being figured in
the adjustment.
Relief To Allenby Sufferers
The Council has put toward the
suggestion that Anyox should share
in the relief offered to the dependents
of the men who perished in the
Copper Mountain disaster. There
is still over seven hundred dollars
in the Patriotic Association relief
fund. The citizens will be asked
for their approval of the proposal to
devote five hundred dollars of this
money to the assistance of those
families whose supporters were cut
ott with such tragic suddeness.

Miles Donald left on Monday for
Prince Rupert, where he attended
the annual meeting of the LaRose
Mining Co. He expects to visit
Vancouver before returning home.
Following discussions that have
been carried on among the shareholders of the Esperanza mine at
Alice Arm, a meeting was held in
Prince Rupert last week and the
newly formed Esperanza Mining
Co. is now an actuality.
The Board of Directors are:
Norman Fraser and Angus MacDonald of Alioe Arm, Peter Gordon
of Anyox, and D. B. MacDongall
and Thomas McMeekin of Prince
Rupert. E. H. Mortimer of Prince
Rupert has been appointed secretary. Norman Fraser is manager
of the mine, a position he has filled
for some considerable time.
Capitalization is $500,000 divided into 500,000 dollar shares.
These shares have been selling at
25 cents, but recently have taken
a jump to 33J- and an upward
trend is looked for, especially when
an expansion of the plant is carried
out. It has been decided to place
100,000 shares upon the market,
and after the disposal of these the
price of the next block will probably be higher.
It is the intention of the company to install a compressor plaut
at the mine as soon as the snow is
off the ground. When this has
been done, a new tunnel 350 feet
in length will be driven to tap the
ore veins at greater depth, thus
giving greater stoping ground.
Until the compressor plant is installed, work at the mine will be
carried on by hand as formerly,
A concentrating mill will be installed at a later date to take care
of all second grade ore, and also
the ore dumps at the mine, which
are said to contain enough ore to
make their milling profitable.
The Esperanza is ideally located
being only twenty minute's walk
from Alice Arm, on an easy grade.
Mining and milling can be undertaken much more economically
than if situated farther inland,
which means that a lower grade of
ore can be profitably handled.

12. MOSS, Kditnr and Publisher.
The newly appointed Minister
of Mines, Hon. Dr. Sutherland, is
after the scalps of unscrupulous
mining companies, judging by press
reports. His efforts in this direction have our utmost support, provided that good common sense is
shown in dealing with the matter.
Mining the public instead of the
property is a great detriment to the
industry. It has been done, as
everyone must admit, but during
the past few years this method of
"mining the public" has been
negligible. The late Hon. Wm.
Sloan, through his resident engineers, kept a record of the prospect
of success -of all newly formed
companies, and we do not believe
that Dr. Sutherland can improve
upon the methods of his predecessor. Buying shares in a mining
company engaged in developing a,
new property is a gamble every
time, and those who invest must
be willing to take a chance.
Sometimes the best surface showings does not make the biggest
mine. Often it happens that a
property with indifferent surface
showings develops a big tonnage
underground, especially in the coast
area, where usually a heavy overburden of dirt, slide-rock and vegetation covers the ground. If the
Minister of Mines wishes to protect
the public, he could do so by keeping a check on the amount of
money subscribed that is spent in
the ground, and what is spent in
overhead costs, which includes,
travelling expenses, suites of luxurious offices, and an army of lounge
lizards, acting in an official capacity.
No one minds very much dropping
a few hundreds of dollars if they
are given value for their money,
but they do object to their money
being used to provide whisky
parties for a bunch of human
leeches posing as mining men.
Alice Arm has been fortunate, in
late years especially, in having
mining companies in the district
who are honestly making an effort
to develop a prospect into a mine.
We dont wish the "mine the public"
variety here at all, for they do not
put any money into the camp, and
their failure discredits the district
and also to some extent those comp-
Pioneer Women To Be
Nearly Hve hundred names of
pioneer women have now been
gathered together for tho purpose
of including thorn in the book
"Colonial Ladies of Vancouver
Island", whioh the womens Canadian Club of Viotoria is sponsoring.
The book will make its appearance
some time next autumn, and it is
the earnest wish of the Club that
none of the names of the women
who came to Vancouver Island
during the period between 1843
and 18G6 shall be left out.
Decision  Reached  On
Oriental Question
Following Premier MacLean's,
plea for united notion on the part
of the legislature in dealing with
problems of major importance, a
unanimous decision was reached
with regard to the Oriental question. Briefly summed up, the resolution passed by the members
seeks power for British Columbia
to control the owning of land by
Orientals and their admission to
this province. It was pointed out
by members of both parties that
there should be no more Japanese
and Chinese in British Columbia,
considering population, than there
are Canadians in Japan and China.
Ottawa is to be asked to take into
immediate consideration the seriousness of the Oriental question in
the Pacific province.
Consolidated    Profits   Drop
Due to Lower Prices
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Company estimate of
•their 1927 profits is $10,750,000,' a
decrease of $276,000 from the
record year, 1926.
In view of the marked depression
in the prices of metals, the showing reflects a substantial increase
in the output over 1926.
The chief increases were in production of silver, lead and zinc, of
which this company is the largest
producer in Canada. The low
price of these metals as well as the
lower output of gold and copper
helped to bring down  the profits.
anies who are endeavoring to honestly develop the country. We do
not believe there is a better field for
investment at the present time than
mining. If one is lucky the returns
are much higher than can be obtained in any other industry. If people
are willing to take a chance with a
few hundred or a few thousand
dollars, with the prospect of returns
of one, two or three hundred per
cent on their money in a few years,
the obstacles placed in their way
should not be too great.

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 Keports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application

Over 500 Mines Working In
According to a statement just
issued by the department in charge
of milling affairs of the Mexican
government, there were 525 mining
properties in Mexico actively engaged at tlie close of 1927. An
almost equal number was described
as idle; and quite a few were given
as "unclassified," whatever that
may mean. Since the first of the
year a number of properties on the
idle list have been reopened.
Preparations are being made to
resume activities on a number of
others. At. the same time, no|
petitions for permission to shut
down have been made recently.
School   Teachers'  Superannuation Receives Support
Unanimous support was given

Dr. H. C. Wrinoh, Liberal, Skeena
supported by Premier MacLean,

the finance department in the
working out of the necessary legislation. The house adopted the resolution without dissent.
Sound Condition of British
Columbia Finances
The sound condition of British
Columbia's finances was clearly
shown in the legislature last week
by Hon- J. D. McLean, minister of
finance. He stated that by the
end of 1929 all British Columbia's
debenture borrowings will be
covered by full sinking fund provision. This, he showed, will further strengthen the province's
position at the head of all the pro-1
vinces of Canada.

^ Medals To Be Awarded To
Teams By A. C. L.
The Council have recommended
to the Finance Committee that a
sum not exceeding thirty dollars be
spent to obtain suitable medals for
the High School Boys, undefeated
champions of the Intermediate Basketball League. Part of the money
may also be used to defray the cost
of extra medals for the Mechanics'
team. The money is to come from
the general funds of the League.
Accordingly, the prize money voted
by the Basketball Association to
the Gymnasium building fund will
not be diminished. The action
taken by the Council is in accord
with the spirit of encouraging all
forms of healthy sport in the community.
THE chief point in
favor of Beer as
compared  to other
alcoholic   beverages,
lies in the very small
percentage of alcohol
contained in Beer,
just enough
aid   digestion.
