Esperanza Mine is
ill Sacking High
Grade Ore
High, grade ore is still being
mined and sacked at the Esperanza Mine. About three tons of ore
is now in the railway cars at the
foot of the hill, but no more will be
brought down until the trail is
repaired. Work on the upper
workings has been suspended on
account of the quantity of water
coming in, but work will be resum-
as soon as all the snow melts on
the surface. Outside prospecting
is now being carried on before the
heavy vegetation covers the ground
The Esperanza shipped ninety tons
of ore to the Smelter about five
weeks ago, It is a promising
looking property and it is the intention of the management to ship
as much ore as possible during the
summer. . •    .......   ■■' ■•  ■..-isastESKaanrasafflK:.-™""—

With the organization of the
Anyox Hospital Auxiliary and the
establishment of a lodge of the
Order of Free Masons, two more
organizations have been born in
the Shelter town. For a number
of years after operations commenced in Anyox there were no
organizations whatever, and life
was a dull affair after the day's
work was done. During the last 3
years, however, a marked change
has taken place and there now
exists in Anyox a local Lodge of
Free Masons, also a Lodge of the
B. P. O. Elk's and five other
organizations, viz: the Community
League, Granby Polytechnic, Parents and Teachers Association,
Hospital Auxiliary, and the Anyox
Service Association. Each organization is doing splendid work in
providing education and recreation
for their members during the leisure
hours. , The Granby Go. provides
the work and it is up to the different organizations to provide the
play, which they are doing in a
very satisfactory and efficient
manner. The winter season of
sports and night school education is
nearly finished, and soon the
summer sports will be in full swing,
and if the participants in the sports
receives the support of the people
which they received last summer,
the outdoor sports will be a huge
success'. The people of Anyox
ate extremely fortunate in having
so many organizations catering to
their pleasure. The management
of the Granby Co. are to be commended on the good judgement
shown by them in realizing that all
work and no play is ■ not good
either for the mind or the body,
and great credit is due them for
the assistance they have given in
promoting good, clean, wholesome
sport in the town.
During tho week the Granby Co.
have taken from Alice Arm seven
ore oars and a considerable quantity of dimension timber belonging
to the Taylor Mining Co. The
timber will be used for the construction of trestles" on the dam
railway and the cars will be used
for transporting material to the
dam site. The Taylor Co. will not
need the ore cars this summer as it
is their intention when they resume
activities to concentrate on development work.

Oil Drilling in the Naas
Valley this Year
A large number of oil claims
have already been staked in the
Naas Valley and many more will
undoubtedly be staked this summer.
It is said that there are good indications of oil from seepages and it
would riot be surprising if an oil
boom .were to take j place • in the
Valley this year. It is understood
that'a contract has already been
let for drilling aud the contractors
have been making enquiries regarding the feasibility of packing the
drill and supplies in from Alice
Arm, but owing to the connecting
link of a few miles of trail not yet
being completed (and no one knows
if it ever will be completed) this
was found impossible. ..The-drill,
etc. will therefore be packed in
from Terrace, a distance of over 70
miles, or transported up the Naas
River, both of which is more costly
than if trail connections were made,
frbm Alice Arm. A large number
of people will undoubtedly visit the
Naas Valley this summer in search
of oil and agricultural lands, and
Alice Arm is the natural gateway
aud outfitting centre for parties
visiting that part of the country.
Is Alice Arm going to share in
the prosperity of the Naas Valley
or is it going to.be forever barred.?
With a capitalization of $500,
000, the M. C. Mining company
has recently been incorporated in
Victoria, in which city the head
office will be situated. The company has been organized for the
purpose of operating on the Bear
River Valley at Stewart.
The company did considerable
work last year on the M. C. group,
which lies on the west side of Bear
River, about nine miles from
Stewart. The work done last year
was very encouraging, and the
above company was formed during
the winter as a result of last year's
work.
A bond has also been taken on
the Prince John group, a property
lying immediately south of the
M. C. These properties are on the
Premier ridge, only on the Bear
River side, and within two miles of
that now famous mine.
Mr. C. A. MacKenzie, who is
well known in Stewart, having
spent the last four years there
studying the geology of the country
will have charge of operations.
