Concentrates From Toric
Mine Piling Up
On Wharf
A daily stream of concentrates
from the Toric Mine is coming down over the Dolly
Varden railway at the rate of six
or seven tons per day. Over one
hundred tons will be brought down
before a shipment is made.
A quantity of lumber arrived
from the south on Monday for the
mine, and will be used for construction of a new bunk-house and
for other purposes.
Molybdenum   Samples
rain on Display
A new bunch of ore samples from
the Tidewater Molybdenum property owned by G. W. Bruggy and
Wm. McFarlane were brought to
town during the week to replace
those sent to the Vancouver exhibition. The Molybdenum ore from
this property again carried off first
prize at the exhibition, and makes
the fifth consecutive year it has
done so.
Experts have pronounced the
Tidewater deposits as being the
richest in the Dominion. It is the
intention of the owners to develop
the property as soon as possible,
and/a company will probably be
formed for this purpose.
Preparations Made To
Entertain Visitors
v All preparations are being made
%y the Alice Arm branch of the
British Columbia Chamber of Mines
to make the visit of the members of
the Vancouver Board of Trade as
interesting as possible during their
stay here next Sunday.
Plans have been made by A. C. H,
Gerhardi general manager of the
Toric mine to convey as many as
possible over the Dolly Varden railway to view the mine and concentrating mill. Gasoline speeders and
trailers will be on hand at the
wharf for this purpose. The majority of the visitors are expected
to visit the Toric.
It is understood that a large
number are making the trip north
this year and every available stateroom will be occupied. The steamer Princess Alice has been chartered for the purpose.
Final Count of Atlin
The official count of the Atlin
constituency has been completed
with the exception of one or possibly two absentee votes from Clinton
to be received.    The figures are   as

Ore Samples Will Be
For the convenience of the visiting members of the Vancouver
Board of Trade, samples of ore
from various properties will be on
display on Sunday at G. W.
Bruggy's old store building.
Owing to the recent big exhibit
sent to the Vancouver Exhibition
the number of samples in town are
limited, but a number of well
known properties are represented
which will give the visitors some
idea of our mineral wealth. The
building will be open throughout
the day.
Large Number Enjoy House
Warming Party
A highly enjoyable house-warming party was held at the home of
Mr. J. Stark on Wednesday evening when thirty-three guests were
invited to celebrate the finishing of
the host's new residence on Valley
View Heights.
The host spared no effort to
make the evening as enjoyable as
possible for his guests.
The evening's entertainment
commenced with a banquet, and
platters piled wi^h roast chicken
disappeared without any- apparent
effort, together with all the sidelines that go to round out a substantial meal. The host's health
was proposed by A. C. H. Gerhardi and drank with   enthusiasm.
Following the repast a concert
was held in which everyone took
part, a number of choruses were
also sung.
It was one of the most delightful
evenings spent by those present
for a long time, and Mr. Stark,
was the recipient of many congrat.
ulations for his hospitality. His
new home was also milch admired.

The increase of Canada's population by immigration is a problem
that has taxed the brains of Canada's leading statesmen for a great
many years. At the present time
the problem seems far from being
solved. The latest scheme is to
bring out from Great Britain many
thousands of men to work as harvesters, and these will shortly arrive. While the majority may
find work in the harvest fields during the next two months, what
will happen to those who don't
and what is going to happen to
these thousands when the harvesting is finished? The prairie is an
inhospitable country for an out-of-
work stranger to be in during the
winter months. With no money,
friends, or home, or work what is
he to do, except to accept charity
or starve? While every good loyal Canadian wishes to see our
empty spaces filled with a prosperous population we do not believe
that it will be done by bringing
men here in the fall of the year.
If immigrants are to be encouraged
they should be given encouragement during the spring, when they
have a chance to make good before
the winter commences.
The mining boom in British
Columbia shows no signs of abating, and those who are in close
touch with the industry throughout the province, emphatically state
♦that a boom does not exist, but
that the mining industry is still in
its infancy. The reason that mining has engaged the attention of the
public recently is the fact that the
people of British Columbia are
commencing to realize the enormous extent of the mineral wealth
of the province and the fruitful field
it offers as an investment. It is
well known that a large number
of the biggest fortunes ever made
were due to mining. The men
who made their money in mining
were willing to take a chance on a
promising property. They backed
a winner and won a fortune.
What has happened in the past
is happening today and will continue long after we have finished admiring the high grade along
the celestial highways. Mining in British Columbia is stepping right along. We now have
126 shipping mines and the number is increasing. British Columbia
is now the world's third largest
producer of zinc and fourth of lead.
She is Canada's largest producer
of copper, and follows Ontario a
close second in the production  of
Mining News From The
Stewart Camp
Good Ore Reported George
Portland Canal  News
If the report which we have on
pretty good authority is correct,
development of George Copper
property would appear to be reach
ing a very interesting stage, a
condition, in fact, that presages
extensive development by the Consolidated Smelters, who are now
doing the work. The report, which
is accepted as pretty much of a
fact on the streets of Stewart, is to
the effect that the drills which
recently started work again have
cut a 50-ft. body of copper ore,
and while the story gives nothing
as to values, it is said to be good
looking ote.
If correct, this is one of the most
important events to the upper Bear
iu many months, as it will mean
greater development and enhances
the chances of a large operation in
that section.
High Grade at Premier
The report circulated in the district to the effect that new high-
grade ore has been located in the
Premier Mine is probably based on
the breaking of new high grade ore
in the stopes as development work
is carried on. According to anth-
orative information received this
week by the News, the report as to
the breaking and shipment of new
high grade is correct.
Increase on This Year's
Salmon Pack
To date the British Columbia

it was last year, for the same
period. The total is 324,076 cases,
according to a bulletin issued a few
days ago by the Dominion Fisheries Department. The corresponding total for last year was 280,319
cases. There is a decrease of sock;
eye and spring salmon, but more of
the cohoe. pink and chum varieties.
In the north it is expected the run
of humpback will be large.
