Errors of Oddfellows Prove
While aotive operations have not
yet commenced at the Esperanza
mine near Alice Arm. it is understood that the delay will be only
a matter of a few days. Arrangements for a resumption of operations are being rapidly pushed
ahead so that as much outside
repair work oan be done before the
bad weather commences in the fall.
It is understood that the engineers
who reoently examined the property
were favorably impressed after the
The editorial staff of the Herald
paid a visit this week to the Esperanza mine and also the Alice property adjoining. We were conducted through the mine by Mr. T. H.
Payne, and were shown the ore
bodies in the various tunnels and
the stopes and old drifts full of
milling ore. We examined the
dumps which will be run through
the concentrating mill—and from
which we obtained some good ore
samples. A stiff climb up the hill
brought us to the Alice property.
Here we were shown the surface
showings by Mr. N. Fraser, who is
driving a tunnel to encounter the
ore at depth. Some extraordinary
high grade ore was shown us in
this ore body, which is from 5 to 6
feet wide and has been traced on
the surface for a distance of 600
feet in varying widths. The successful encountering of this ore at
depth will add considerably to the
value of the Esperanza ore bodies.
Dr. J. T. Mandy Examines
Mining Properties
Dr. J. T. Mandy, who has been
examining mining properties in the
Alice Arm district arrived down
from the Upper Kitsault Country
on Wednesday night, and since
then has been completing his work
in the mining section near the town.

The Elks played steady ball behind their star pitcher to take the
ganie of August Hth. and thus
take a lead cf two games to one
from their fraternal foe in the
Granby Cup Series. Lazorek's
pitching was fully as effective as
big Nick's but his support was terrible. Bronson Hunt subbing for
Charlie Musser at short, whose lung
power is greater than his baseball
ability, actually pulled his gloved
hand in rather than take Fred
Whitehouse'sdrive in the third inning. As this none too difficult
blow drove in two runs, Ed. Blundell can just about charge the de-
feat of his boys up to the garrulous
blonde. Considering the closeness
of the score and the number of
errors in tl '. Jdfullow infield, it is
only reasonable to assume that
with their versatile captain, Char
lie Musser in the lineup, the result
woilld have been decidedly diff'.u ent.

Oddfellows  No  Match For
The Antlered Herd
Born to Mr. and Mrs. Eiich, at
Anyox General Hospital, on Sunday, August I9th, a son.
Not content with the league
championship, the Elks had to
step out and wind up tiie 1934
baseball season by humiliating the
Oddfellows 8-1 and take the Granby
Cup down to their Club Rooms as
well. The Oddfellows appeared
formidable in the first inning.
Hunt hit Chenoski's first pitch for
two bases and promptly scored.
The Oddfellows then filled the
bases and kept them filled but
could not tally again, two men be
ing forced out at the plate. After
this inning the boys in blue were
helpless. Gibson sent one of Har
dy's slow balls over the creek and
circled the bases on it, not gaining
oredit for a homer however, as the
ball was in the infield before he
reached third. The Oddfellows
were very erratio iu their fielding,
although G, Anderson and White
stood out with some very tine fly

the games were close and the baseball was good. However in the
latter stages the Elks began to

Ex-Ruperts Leaders In
The Anyox Softball
Formidable as it appeared in the
early part of May last, when no
less than fifty-six games were scheduled to be played throughout the
season, the Anyox Softball League
has been completed. It was carried
through without a hitch, attendance at every game was good, and
keen interest was sustained
throughout. Iu other words soft-
ball has found a soft spot in tlie
hearts of Anyox people, and has
justified the faith whioh its promoters had in it.
Leading the league are the Ex-
Ruperts, with the Adanacs second,
Roustabouts third, and Bonanza
fourth. The Millers actually tied
with Bonanza for fourth place, but
due to shift work the latter would
have been unable to play off with
Bonanza for about two weeks, so
in a true sporting spirit they have
withdrawn in favor of the buoket
men. The four teams mentioned
will now engage in a series of play
off games to deoide the champion
ship of the Beach League.

Throe Anyox boys—George and
Bobby Kent aud Bruoe McMaster
—have recently made some astonishing catches of Rainbow trout at
Bowman Lake. Starting off in
company with J. Hauber, who left
them at 11 Mile, they reached the
lake safely, although the trail is in
a very bad state. On their first
day's fishing they caught 65 Rainbow trout, fishing with flies. After
a five-days' stay they started for
Alice Arm and when within six
miles George Kent had the misfortune to slip on a brush hook aud
out his hand open. They arrived
just too late to catch the boat for
Anyox, but F. C. Graham put several stitches in the wound, which
is healing favorably.
A pretty wedding was solemnized
in Anyox on Friday morning the
17th, when Miss Cecelia Isabel Desjardins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
John Desjardins, of Terrace, became the bride of Mr. Josesh Wilson McConnell, youngest son of the
late Mr. and Mrs. David McConnell
of Belfast, Ireland. The ceremony
took place in the Catholic Church,
Rev. Father Murie officiating. The
church was prettily decorated
with flowers.and greenery for the
occasion. The wedding music was
played by Mrs. C. Harman, and the
choir of the church rendered special
items. Mrs. J. M. Normandeau,
sister of the bride, was Matron of
honour, and Mr. James McGuire
gave the bride in marriage.
The bride was most charming in
a white swagger suit and white
crepe hat, with white shoes and kid
gloves. She carried a bouquet of
gladiolas, sweet peas and roses.
Mrs. Normandeau wore a green and
brown dress of Romer crepe, and
a browii velvet toque with accessories to match. She carried a bouquet of sweet peas and roses.
A reception was afterwards held
at the home of Mrs. Normandeau,
at which several friends and relatives were present. The bride's
table was decorated in silver and
pale pink, and carried a handsome
three-tier cake. The couple left by
boat the same evening for a visit to
Terrace, from which point they
will go to Chilliwack, where they
will reside.

Mining Companies
The news published in our last
issue that the estimated mineral
production of the province for the
first six months of this year will ex
ceed by 63.2 per cent that of the
first six months of 1933 makes
pleasant reading for everyone in the
province. This increase means that
additional millions of dollars will be
placed in, circulation among the
people of British Columbia. Those
receiving the first benefits are the
people employed in the mining industry, and shareholders of those
companies paying dividends, but
eventually this money will percolate
from one industry to another until
all receive benefits. This increase
of mineral production is one sure
sign that business in general is improving. It shows that the manufacturing industry needs larger
supplies of metals for its increasing
business. It also shows that British Columbia mining companies
have reduced their costs so that
they can successfully compete in the
world's markets, and tor this they
are to be highly commended. Much
credit is due the big mining companies for the advancement they
have made in the treatment of their
ores. They have reduced their operating costs without unduly decreasing wages, and at the present
time British Columbia can boast of
quite a number of the most highly
efficient mining, milling and smelting plants in the world. Under the
fiercest kind of world competition
during the past few years all of the
big mining companies of the province have successfully carried on,
and to these companies the people
owe a deep debt of gratitude.
Heavy  Shipments   Of

Outlook For Silver Is
Permanently Improving
• Everyone in Canada and in the
United States has read and heard a
lot about silver, especially during
the past few months. Silver has
been given a lot of publicity, and
the result is that the price is now
around 50 cents an ounce, with the
probability of its going substantially higher. Just how high it is
necessary to rise before large operations will be re-commenced in the
Alice Arm district is not known.
One thing however is plain to all,
that with the improved methods of
milling ores, plus the lower cost of
general supplies now prevailing in
comparison with 1919-29, it is possible to successfully mine large
bodies of ore much more cheaply
than during the ten years previous
The Stewart News
The Coastwise Steamship and
Barge Co. freighter S. S. Bornite,
Captain Cameron, docked this week
with a large cargo of general freight
for Premier in addition to some
2,000 boxes of powder.
Loading some 1,500 tons of concentrates from Premier, together
with 43 tons of concentrates and 15
tons of high grade ore-from Dunwell
sailed for Anyox yesterday, towing
a scow with 500 tons of low grade
ore from the Dunwell mine for theil1
smelter at Anyox. According to
report the Bornite will take a
heavy load of copper from Anyox,
making in all the largest shipment
south in two years. It is further
rumoured that business is picking
up to an extent that warrants placing another ore carrier on the run.
The Griffco is expected to go into
commission for this purpose.
Big Plane Takes In Mining
Supplies To Unuk River
The Stewart News
The Canadian Airways Fokker
Seaplane, Pilot F. M, McGregor
and Mechanic W. J, Jacquot, arrived from their Fisheries Patrol base
at Swanson Bay on Saturday last,
and with good flying weather from
Sunday until Wednesday night took
into the Unuk some 4500 pounds,
which includes about nine men with
their supplies and diamond drill
equipment. As soon as weather
permits, it is the intention to complete the work which it is estimated
will require some three more trips.
In all, the plane has this year
taken in crews for three syndicates.
The Unuk River Gold, which was
the first in the field, and holds some
22 claims on the big zone. The-
Unuk Valley Gold, which has some,
16 claims on the northern extension
of the same zone, and a syndicate
composed of Prince Rupert men,
headed by Doctor Carson. The
first two syndicates are composed
of members of the staff at Premier.
Olof Hanson M. P. Is Again
Chosen Liberal Candidate
With some seventy-five delegates
present from various parts of the
riding, Olof Hanson, M. P., received the unanimous endorsation
and nomination of Skeena Liberals
at a Convention held in Prince
Rupert on August 10th, several
delegates pointing to the prompt
service and action the present member had always given to requests
from his constituents.
The nomination of Mr. Hanson
was made by George Nickerson in
a speech that roused great enthusiasm and S. J. Mayer applied suitable remarks in seconding the
nomination. Others speaking to
the motion were M. P. McCaffery
of Prince Rupert and L. B. Warner of Smithers, these speaking on
a motion to close the nominations.
Big Increase  In  Canadian
Canadian dividend payments in
Jul) 1934, amounted to $17,632,095
as compared with $13,580,939 in
Jnly 1933, and $14,681,434 in July
1932. For the first seven months
of 1934 dividend disbursments show
an increase of over thirty million
dollars as a result of the consistent
increase month by month in the
current year to date, as compared
with the corresponding period of
the previous year. The cumulative
total of dividends paid during the
year to date is reported at $114,-

Dominion exports for July were
$56,786,666, the decrease in the
value of wheat exports being more
than made up in increases of exports of newsprint and automobiles

for the four months of the fiscal
year to the end of July was $27,-
to 1929. Silver at 50 cents an
ounce today is probably as good as
60 cent silver in 1929. As soon as

"Mow is the time for all good
x^ fishermen to prepare for
that summer trip" is an appropriate slogan for disciples of Isaac
Walton these balmy spring days.
A successful fishing trip depends
largely upon the careful selection
of location, tackle and even associates, for many a party has been
ruined by the last-minute introduction of a "wet blanket" to an
otherwise congenial collection of
One of the most interesting fishing streams in North America is
French River, Ontario, 215 miles
north of Toronto on the Canadian
Pacific Railway. This lordly river
is celebrated as the habitat of the
fighting muscalunge, one of the
gamest fish known; huge Great
Northern pike, pickerel, an abund
ance of small-mouth and large-
mouth black bass and other finny
prizes. To accommodate sportsmen
and their families, a fine bungalow
camp—* collection of individual
cabins centering around a main
clubhouse—has oeen erected on a
cliff overlooking the river. Here
the fisherman and his family can
"rough it in comfort," far from
the cares and annoyances of a
work-a-day world.
That big "muskies" are plentiful at French River is proven by
the fact that one recent summer
a  monster muskie  weighing  65
Sounds was taken in the North
hannel at the mouth of the
Wolseley River. Also, not long
ago a party of Ohio sportsmen
caught, besides their daily limit of
bass, pike and pickerel, no less
than seventeen "muskies" ranging
from 10 to 88K lbs. In 1926 a "muskie" of 85 pounds weight, 50
inches long and 21 inches in girth
was taken in the main channel of
the French, one mile from the
bungalow camp.
The French River Bungalow
Camp will open June 15 and remain open until Sept. 15. Jack
Strathdee, its genial manager, ia
an experienced outdoorsman whose
chief delight is coaching the uninitiated in the art of luring the
fish. French River also has a fine
9-hole golf course so that devotees
of the royal and ancient game who
are also fond of fishing need not
entirely forego the former sport
in favor of the latter.

Canadian Copper and Nickel
Production Shows Big
An increase of 240.4 per cent was
shown in the production of nickel in
the five months ending May, when
the output amounted to 40,982,038
pounds as compared with 14,666,635
pounds in the corresponding period
last year, the Dominion Bureau of
Statistics says in a report issued recently. The output for the month of
May amounted to 10,033,939
pounds, almost double the 5,430-
554 pounds produced in May 1933.
Copper produced in the five
months ending May totalled 35,-
680,538 pounds, in comparison
with 21,056,268 pounds in May,
1933, the report states. For the
five-month period ending May copper production amounted to 149,-
282,706 pounds, an increase of 45
per cent., as compared with the
corresponding period of 1933.
Big Gold Nugget Found In
Northern Interior
The Nechaco Chronicle stated in
a recent issue that a gold nugget
weighing 24 ounces, free of quartz
had been found on the property of
Germansen Placers Ltd., by Jeft

it is the largest nugget to be found
• in the Manson area since way back
in 1871.
A nugget of that size should have
an intristic worth, at today's gold
price, of approximately $800. As
a specimen it will probably command a premium.
