Rich Strike of
High Grade Ore
at Esperanza
Another strike of high grade
(silver ore was made in the Baldy
[tunnel at the Esperanza mine, on
[Thursday. The strike was made
[in the drift running south from the

[expected that a good sized ore
[shoot will soon be opened up.
[Several dykes have been cut
[through with this drift, and Kthe
[next known dyke is about 200 ieet
[distant from the strike.
The ore vein has been followed
[for a distance of about 100 feet
(from the Baldy" tunnel, and in
[places narrowed down to a fine
[stringer, but with the widening of
[the vein the future of the mine is
[brighter than it has ever been.
Ore has also been encountered in
[the drift being driven in a south-
IWe'steHy^teeT.ioTfi"from- the" Baldy
I workings, and although of a lower
[grade, a considerable tonnage of
I shipping ore is being developed. ,s

Proposed Scheme for the Co-
Relation of Continuation
School Work in the North-
Western Part of the Province
of British Columbia
The scheme provides for the
proposed establishment of a system
of federated night schools and continuation classes, under the control
of one institution, with the suggested title of the "Northern British
Columbia Technical Institute."
In its character, the scheme is
somewhat similar to the operation
of the Royal Institute of Science,
and Art, South Kensington.
England, whose classes (covering a
great variety of subjects, from
brick-laying and coal mining, to
the sciences and fine arts) are conducted in nearly every centre of
Great Britain. Examinations are
held in those towns and certificates
are issued from South Kensington.
It is proposed that the Northern
'British Columbia Technical Institute should conduct its classes and
hold the necessary examinations in
all the towns within the Prince
Rupert district, from Stewart to
Prince Rupert and Telkwa to the
Queen Charlotte Islands. All diplomas and certificate would be
issued by a central board of control
The classes would be taught by
local men and women, who would
teach their own particular trade or
profession; the teachers receiving
direction, instruction, courses of
study and general supervision from
a Technical expert Director
appointed by the Board.
Up to this point it is somewhat
similar to South Kensington, but
unlike that body there would not
be established a central school of
Technology, the idea being to keep
down the running expenses as low
as possible. •
The Institute would maintain a
central office in Prince Rupert,
whioh would be its headquarters.
It would endeavour to teach three
groups of the adult population of
the district with its classes, namely
(1) the illiterate population and
non-English speaking people who
number some 9,287 people who
can not read or write, which is
23.75 per cent, of the provincial
population, tho highest percentage
in the province. (2) Those who
have a moderate amount of education, and who. wish to progress
further, or to specialize in some
subjects relating to their business.
Those who wish to spend part of
their winter evenings in an interesting way.
The advantages of the scheihe to
the student would mainly be in
numbers  (l)  and  (2)   and   will
appeal to men and women of am-,
bition who desire to rise above
their present level, whatever that
level may be.
The outstanding feature for them
is no matter where business may
call them within the proposed area,
they have but to present their
registration card to the teacher in
their new home town and get right
down to work at the point at
which they left off in their
former town. The night they
enter their hew class room, they
will receive the same lesson which
they would have received in the
old, from the same text book and
for one enrollment fee instead of
two. I *
The advantage of the scheme to
the various towns in the district is
that the expense of running 'the
executive end of night school education would be shared proportionally instead of it all being
borne by each school board, as is
the case where towns run night
schools on their own account.
The expenses in connection with
the scheme for the first' year would
be $7000 and $6000 in subsequent
years. This sum would cover
salary of Technical Director and
his travelling expenses, stenographer and book-keeper, office rent,
etc., stationery, office furniture,
and equipment for classes. N The
two latter items, once purchased
would not be an annual expense.
Assuming that all the towns in
the district supported the scheme,
the proportional cost would be
somewhat as follows:
Stewart $100

Alice Awn 150
Port Simpson 860

Continued from page 2.
During the evening, those present
had an opportunity to bid farewell
to the members of the teaching
staff who are severing their connection with the Anyox schools at
this closing. Auld Lang Syne and
the National Anthem then brought
to a close the final public session of
the P. T. A. for this term, and it
was elected to have been one of the
most pleasurable of the year.
The executive of the Association
wish to extend their thanks'to Rev.
Father Fleck for the gratuitous use
of the Hall, and to Mr. L. F.
Champion for prizes donated.
Most of the credit for the
pleasure of the social arrangements
and for the particularly delectable
supper, is due to Mrs. J. Cloke and
Mrs. T. Oxley of the Social Committee, and Mrs. W. F. Eye and
Mrs. L, McKay, of the Refreshment Committee, not only on this
occasion, but at all times these
ladies have been most energetic in
their office, and their efforts have
greatly enhanced the social period
of the meeting.
And finally a word to those
parents who are not yet members
of the P. T. A. The children of
Anyox require the best the schools
.can provide in instruction and
training and the teaching staff
needs the co-operation of - eVery
parent to secure the best results for
the boys and girls.' The P. T. A.
is a medium to solve problems on
both sides, so the executive u'rges
your enrollment and boosting for
next term. Think it over, mothers
arid fathers.

Community League
Council Meeting
Continued from page 3.
Maple Bay Cafe came up, and it
was decided that Mr. Jessop be
interviewed by the President and
see what could be done about the
matter. The Council felt that
there should be some return for the
money spent in connection with
fitting this place up.
Mr. Buzzelle asked about the
plans for the community building.
He said that the men in charge of
the contract for the new dam were
capable of giving an estimate and
it would be a great chance to have
the matter decided. Considerable
discussion was indulged in, the
Chair being of the opinion that the
whole matter should be laid over
for a special meeting. Mr. Buzzelle
suggested that the management of
the Granby Co. be invited to attend
this "meeting, and he felt that if the
company   did—not   undertake   to

build or guarantee the cost, it
would be useless for the A. C. L. to
continue in the matter. Mr,
Roberts was certain that the company would not be inclined to
spend any ^nioney in connection
with this scheme. Mr, Armour
thought that if the company took
such a stand that plans could be
modified. It was finally decided
that the plans be presented to the
Council at the next regular meeting, July 5th, and the whole
question be discussed. This was
put in the form of a motion by Mr.
Armour, and seconded by Mr.
Lowry.
