Falconer, and presented him with a
handsome club bag, inside of which
was a purse of money.
The presentation was made by J.

Kitsault-Eagle Operates
Three Camps
The Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines
Ltd. now have three camps operating in the vicinity of McGrath
mountain and the north-east fork of
the Kitsault river.
In addition to the development
work on the Silver Cord, which has
been carried on uninterruptedly for
two years, they have commenced
development work on the Le Roy.
This property has some tremendous
surface showings of zinc ore and
development is expected to prove up
a large tonnage.
Development has also been commenced on a portion of the twenty
claims recently bonded by the com
pany on McGrath mountain. A
total of fifteen men are now being

Saddle Tramway
Cut Transportation
P. E. Peterson, consulting engineer for Silver Crest, states that the
aerial tramway which is being
built to serve the Saddle claims at
Hastings Arm will, together with
the new compressor, cut operating
costs on that property greatly.
"It will be possible to mine at a
cost of $15 a foot instead of $35 as
at present and supplies may be
taken to the property on the tram
at a cost of 25 cents a ton instead
of 10 cents a pound, the price that
has been paid to packers," said
Mr. Peterson.
A wharf, 100 feet by 14 feet, has
been completed, excavation has
been made for the lower tramway
terminal, the right of way cleared
and oable is now being strung, the
engineer reported. The B. C.
Equipment Co. is handling the
tramway oontraot.
The tram is a double jig-back
8400 feet long, suspended on ten
steel towers.) The interesting
feature, and one very creditable to
British Columbia industry, is that
it was designed and built by British Columbia labor on Granville
Island, Vancouver. The cable was
made oif British steel wound on
Granville Island.

the Vancouver exhibition which
commences on August 8th. can be
left at G. W. Bruggy's old store
building. The samples will be
packed and shipped not later than
August 1st. Bring in your samples as soon as possible. An even
better display is required this year
so that the big ohallenge shield can
be won. If this is done it becomes
the property of the North-western
Distriot, it having then been won
three times.

K. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
Cecil Rhodes was one of the
financial geniuses of modern times.
The following expresses his view
on mining investment:
"Mining has been the foundation of the world's wealth from the
beginning of time. The govern'
ments rich in mineral, have always
been the richest and strongest gov-
ernments on the earth. The man
who produces gold, silver, lead and
copper is creating the raw material
of wealth; every stroke of his pick
every echo from his drill, adds to
the wealth of everyman's business
in the world. Mining has always
been the quick road to fortune.
A country of great mines always
becomes a country of great wealth,
influence and power, and what you
can say for nations you can say for
"I believe investing money
good mining stock is the most pro
fitable of investments, and very
much the safest. And why safest?
Because your security is the ore
itself—the raw material of money,
The security for your money in a
good mining company is the money
itself, actual money."
The poets have done well by
June. The subject supplies inspiration enough for any rhymester to
do his best.
If June is ordinarily well behaved
it deserves all that the great and
little poets have sung about it.
Occasionally the month shows a
rebellious spirit, but so rarely is this
true that the exceptions may b
taken to prove the poet's rule of
blessedness and praise for June.
Nature perfects herself in the
sixth month of the year. Perhaps
some people will hold that nature's
perfection comes at the harvest
season which falls well forward
into the hazy days. There is,
however, a harvest of flowers as
well as of fruits and grains, and the
abundance of blossoms comes in
June along with brides, girl graduates and other things pleasant to
look upon.
Ben Sampson was awarded the
Five dollar prize offered by the A.C.

dea was that the league should

The Membership committee, headed by Mr. Deeth, reports excellent
progress. The chairman himself
has added twenty members recently,

neglected the opportunity of cooperating in this beneficent movement.

P. G. E.  Outcome
Questioned iu the House of Commons in regard to taking over tlie
P. G. E. Railway by the C. N. R.
the minister of railways said "no
agreement regarding the P. G. E.
could be consummated without the
approval of Parliament."
Mr. Dunning said the negotia
tions were progressing satisfactorily but beyond this he could not go.
It was always possible to have an
operating agreement made and in
such cases it would not be necessary to come to Parliament for
Rising Price of Silver
Will Boom Industry
A good dea! of attention is being
paid to the silver market at present
[>y mining circles in Canada. The
price of this metal recently took a
leap to around 63 cents an ounce,
the highest it has been since August, 1926. It is now selling around
60 cents, and there is a feeling
among mining men that, with
world production supposedly past
its peak and no immediate sources
of supply in sight, and with the
demand apparently increasing in
Oriental countries, the silver situation may be expected to hold its
recent improvement at least.
The present price of silver is
about the same as it was in 1914,
when the average was 59.79 cents.
In 1925 it took a sharp advance,
mounting to 69 cents as an average.
With labor and other mining costs
where they are today, operators of
silver mines say the price of this
metal ought to be around 70 cents,
to permit similar profits to those
before the war.

Barnum Understood How
To Advertise
Bamum's most emphatic point
—one which no one could accuse
him of not following—was to advertise. Persistauce was important. He said that when an advertisement first appears "a man does
not see it, the second time he
notices it, the third time he reads
it, the fourth he thinks about it,
the fifth he speaks to his wife
about it, and the sixth or seventh
he is ready to purchase.
Advertising men today would
probobly agree with him. At any
rate, he made money by taking his
own advice.

He pitches his tepees under the steep cliffs of Cascade Mountain, known to the Indians from ancestral
days as "Stoney Chief", Close to "Stoney Chief" and
still known by its original name stands "Stoney
Squaw". The latter It a pretty mountain, much
smaller than its neighbour, but with an appealing
feminine dignity all its.own. The reason, then, for
the Indians' original choice of names is obvious to
For these three festival days the Indian ia lord of
all he surveys, and all through the village of Banff
and in and around the famous Banff Springs Hotel
the scene resembles a veritable monater Indian camp.
The event that probably led up to the adoption of
Indian Days occurred In July 1889 when rail traffic,
both east and west of Banff was tied up for a period
of ten days, as heavy rains had washed out the tracks
in both directions. The Banff Springs Hotel, then
but a small structure, was crowded with tourists who
found time hung heavily on their hands.
The hotel manager at that time and Tom Wilson,
the famous Rocky Mountain guide, then pot tlieir
heads together and decided to invite op the whole
Stoney Indian Tribe from the Morley Reserve to
make friends with the visitors.
What is today the main road to the hotel was on
that occasion staked off as a race track, the winning
post being placed at the hotel entrance. Every form
of race and sport known to the Indians was held, in
addition to many suggested by the white spectators.
Altogether the visit of the Indians was a marvellous
success, and it ultimately led to the establishment in
1907 of an annual Indian Day, which in time grew
into the continent-wide advertised Indian Days. The
Indians look forward to these days with the greatest
enthusiasm and early on in the year start counting
'V>nly so many days now till we go to Banff". The
Indian village of a hundred tepeee is, as said before,
located at the foot of Cascade Mountain for this
festival, and is semi-circular in form, each band of the
tribe having a section to themselves. Rations art
served directly the Indian village is in shape. The
Government donates three buffalo annually to the
Indians, and the first one of these is then shot by a
game guardian and quickly cut up by the redskin
butchers. So skilled and speedy are the few Indian!

Britannia Mining Coy.
Increasing Output
Britannia Mines, the British Columbia unit of the Howe Sound
Company, is now producing approximately 3,500,000 pounds of
copper per month. Earnings of
the company will be far in excess
of what they were last year due to
increased production and improved
facilities for handling the ore. It
is also benefitting materially from
the increase in the price of oopper,
silver, and other metals.
Last year the record of production at Britannia was one of the
best in the company's history, the
total being 33,500,000 pounds of
copper, 10,000 ounces of gold,
170,000 ounces of silver, and 40,000
tons of iron pyrites.
Copper production in 1926 was
33,117,288 pounds so that the increase in the past year is very considerable. As an indication of the
rapid growth of this famous company's production it is interesting
to note that in 1917 the copper
output was only 15,780,000 pounds
or considerably less than half that
of any of the past two years.

Know Your   Province
And Boost It
The large advertisement on this
page showing the progress of the
mining industry, is one of a series
of advertisements, commenced two
weeks ago. The idea of these advertisements is to bring home to
the people of the province the
splendid progress made in every
line of industry during tlie recent
years, and to make everyone feel
proud of the province in which we
live. The broadcasting of our progress should bear fruit.
"Seven years ago," writes tlie
Secretary of the B. C. and Yukon
Press Association, "the Press Association of the province took its
initial step iu a campaign of publicity. At that time there was
prepared in the office of the Vancouver Province and its mechanical
department a full-page advertisement showing the development
and resources of the province.
This plate was prepared and forwarded to newspaper members of
the Press Association free of cost
by the Province newspaper, and by
them published at no cost to anyone except the publisher;. This
was done in the general interest of
the province. It had no political
significance. The newspapers recognize that the 'in', party always
claims the credit for any progress
made and the 'out' party always
sees the country headed for the
weiner factory. The Press members tried to show British Columbia's pheuomenal progress in spite
of political parties not because of
t'hem, and to inspire readers with
tlie thought of rapidly developing
industries, splendid opportunities
offering, and wealth in untold
quantity awaiting individual effort
and systematic search.
The original idea went over well
but at that time the Association
had only a 50 per cent, membership.
Since then the idea has been further developed until this year it
was adopted by the Provincial
Government in a commendable
spirit of co-operation looking to the
publio weal. This week every
daily and weekly newspaper in the
province starts a 'British Columbia
first' publicity. Not a week of it,
not a month, but for all time.
"Every citizen of the province;
every sohool girl or boy; every citizen of any other country making a
living here should be interested in
learning the progress and develop
ment the provinoe is making. All
must enter into the spirit of Brit
ish Columbia before there can be a
united British Columbia marching
forward in mighty array.

TWENTY years' mining in British Columbia have yielded nearly
800-million dollars.  The last ten years have increased production
by 58.9 per cent.
The value of all Canada's production is $25.70 per citizen, British Columbia's production today, if distributed, would mean $111.96 per person annually! Our mined
and treated tonnage of metalliferous ores reached a record of more than 5-million
tons for 1927.
The value of the mining industry to the
Province is in the distribution of money in
wages, supplies, transportation services, etc.
And in this respect, 1927 was a record year!
The 14,000 employees of the mining industry
were paid wages totalling 23 million dollars...
or nearly $1,700 each... the highest average for
any Canadian Province.
During the year, distribution of eight million
dollars was made in dividends!
British Columbia mines approximately 40
million dollars worth of copper, zinc and lead,
a year . . . more than the rest of Canada. In
gold and silver, our production ranks second
... in coal, third; our total annual mining
production today being exceeded only by
Sound legislation, good mining laws and low
fees have encouraged this development and
stimulated growth. Although the provincial
mining area has only been superficially pros-
Sected within the transportation belt, new
elds are developing, new roads and trails
constantly being built.
Chattering drills sink deeper and deeper
into the hills . . . heavy ores rumble through
the concentrators ... fortunes come tumbling
from the treasure chest of British Columbia!
What was once only imagined about our mining
Eotentialitles, is now proven knowledge. Mining
as become our third largest industry...
showing over 67 million dollars revenue a
year . . . proof that prosperity flourishes in
British Columbia.
Capital from Eastern. Canada, the United
States, Great Britain, France... seeks invest*
ment. Our great wealth of production, developing so steadily during the past ten years, has
established confidence and aroused keen interest in British Columbia's mining future the
world over.

progress.,. clip them out and send them to friends. If you
desire extra copies of these announcements a. note to this
newspaper will bring them. Advertise your Province!
