Close Vote Makes Atlin
Seat Still Very Doubtful
Result of Atlin District Will be Deciding Factor
Who will represent Atlin in the
next parliament is still a matter of
conjecture. Up to the time of going
to press, all information available
by the Herald indicated one of the
closest contests on record.
As the different polling stations
were heard from on Wednesday
night, T. W. Falconer was able to
maintain a small lead, which was
sometimes brought down to 3 or 4
as H. F. Kergin obtained a majority
at some polling station. Latest
returns available which include the
Anyox absentee vote, give Kergin
a majority of 11. It is possible
that until the last vote is in the issue
will be in doubt.
Returns have been received
from all polling stations except
those in the Atlin district, and this
delay is caused by a breakage in
the government telegraph line.
Word from these points is being
anxiously awaited, and whoever
wins the contest will do so by a
small majority, as the Atlin vote is
, expected to be fairly evenly divided.
It is probable that a recount of the
ballots will be taken should the
margin be very close.
T. W. Falconer obtained a
majority of 13 at Alice Arm, 7 at
Anyox Beach, 5 at Anyox Mine, and
20 at Stewart, while H. F. Kergin
obtained a majority of 15 at Premier
Mine, and 15 at at Telegraph Creek.
Following are the returns of the
polling stations heard from to date.

Mr. S. J. Cook of the Dominion
Bureau of Statistics, considers it
reasonable to predict from data
assembled that within ten years
Canada will become the third
largest producer of copper in the
world, being surpassed only by the
United States and Chile.
Although Canada now produces only about 5 per cent, of
the world's output of copper, an
enormous increase in production
will be possible by the development of the newer fields just now
coming to the front, such as the
Rouyn district in Quebec, the
Frood mine area near Sudbury
in Ontario, and the several copper
properties in Manitoba, represented in the public mind by such
names as Flin Flon, Mandy, and
This suggests a subject of interest to British Columbia which is
one of the principal copper producers in the Dominion, having an
annual yield at present of nearly
90,000,000 pounds of an estimated value of about $12,000,000.
Copper, zinc and silver prices have
advanced materially in recent
weeks. All promise to go higher
according to the opinion of the
"Wall Street Journal" in a recent
The   outlook   for    non-ferrous
metal prices   and   for   companies
"producing copper, lead and silver,
is much better than it has been for
more than a year.
Lead prices made their first ad
vance for many weeks on May 25,
and the opinion is that they   will
advance further in the near future.
The reason for the improved
outlook is said to be that producers
and consumers of copper, zinc and
lead have learned that a fair price
is best for the industry as a whole,
and despite the wide heralding by
certain economists that industry
goes wrong on the consumption
end, the non-ferrous metal industries have learned that the price of
at least such basic commodities as
the metals go wrong on the production end, with the upsetting of
the industry as a whole following
as an inevitable result.
That is why first a zinc, next a
silver, and then a copper, institute
were formed, and that is why in the
next few weeks a lead institute
will be organized. All are copied
after the original Iron and Steel
Institute in the light of later laws.

Living in tlie past yields a poor
The way to kill time is to  work
it to death.
Copper Sales Ease Off
But Price Remains
High Level
Consumers finally have dulled
their keen demand for copper, and
after nine consecutive weeks of
better-thau-average business, including two or three of olose-to-
record proportions, the market has
been much less active. This applies
to foreign more than to domestic
buying- Producers are pleased
with the turn of events. Their
books show that they are well sold
for July, and August production is
provided for to some extent. At
the same time the requirements of
users are supplied and a period of
dullness is generally expected.
The higher prices of the last two
months already have had the effect
of speeding up production in several
mining districts. Although this
has not been reflected to a marked
extent in the statistics, there is no
doubt but that higher production
schedules are in effect. In one or
two instances it is reported that
inability to obtain necessary miners
lias interfered with plans to expand
output. Some producers point out
that the unusually large volume of
buying in the last two months is
not the result of increased current
consumption by manufacturers so
much as the replenishment of stocks
of raw material in their warehouses
that had been depleted by hand-to-
mouth buying. On this ground
they contend that stepping up of
production should be done with
circumspection. The prevailing
prices have been 14.75c, Connecticut, and 14.875c. in the Middle-
West. The foreign price continues
at 15c. c. i. f. European ports.
Concentrating Mill For
Hazelton Mine
Work was started this week on
the construction of a 50-ton mill
for the Silver Cup Mine on Nine
Mile Mountain and itis being rushed as rapidly as possible. Bound
timbers for tlie foundation are being
secured on Nine Mile Mountain,
but the other building material
will come from Terrace. The
machinery is said to be all provided
for and will be shipped from the
south as soon as the upper part of
the Nine Mile road above the pole
camp is in shape to take trucks
over it It is now being widened.
The construction of the buildings
and the installation of the machinery will take all summer, but it will
be ready to run early this fall.

Deepest Mine in World
Operating Over
90 Years
The "Mining Journal." of London, celebrated its ninetieth
anniversary last year, and it has
published* eaoh week since some
small item from its issue of the
corresponding date ninety years
ago. Ou June 2, last, it published
the following: "June 2,1838.—The
St. John Del Rey Mining Company.
—A speoial general meeting of the
shareholders of this company was
held at their office on Friday, 1st.
inst., in consequence of advice
being received from the mines of
the release of the deposit fund.
The Chairman explained ....
that suoh should be disposed to the
following effect, viz., that £1,800
should be applied for the purpose
of making an investment fund to
repay the shareholders what they
had advanced out of their own
pockets towards working the mine;
that a certain number of negroes
should be purchased— as many as
required; aiid that the remainder
should be held in investment in
Brazil, to answer any oontingen
cies." Labor problems were simpler
90 years ago. If times were brisk,
buy a few more negroes; if slack,
sell some.
The Morro Velho mine, at Minas
Geraes, Brazil, whioh is owned and
operated by the St. John Del Rey
Mining Company, is one of the
oldest and deepest, if not the oldest
and deepest, active gold mine in the
world, and it contains the most
persistent shoot of gold-bearing
quartz that ever has been exploited.
The lode is vertical; at the surface
the shoot pitched at an angle of
45 degrees and it held that pitch
to the 17th. horizon, about 5,100-
foot level, where it began to flatten,
the pitch lessening and lessening
as depth was gained, until, at the
present bottom, 7,126 feet vertically
below the outcrop, it is only 15

Noranda Stock Hits a
High Mark
The recent spectacular market
activity in Noranda is arousing
great interest. In the last few
weeks approximately $35,000,000
has been added to the market value
of the fetook, and this is based, to
some extent at least, on recent
developments at the 975 level.
The new orebody encountered in
the shaft at this level, now believed
to be the downward continuation
of the II orebody, has been drifted
ou for 150 ft. and is said to run
approximately 15 per oent copper
and $4 in gold. Though the dis

|OLL down the map pf the world. Follow the British Empire
red through the continents and across the seas. There you
• see beckoning markets for Canada—where fewer trade
restrictions intervene, where British tradition is appreciated, where
Canada is known.   There we can sell.   There we can also buy.
Canada is buying more Empire goods than ever before—things we
cannot grow or make—raw materials for our factories. Since 1922
Canada's imports from Empire countries have increased 67 per cent.
Last year we bought Empire goods to the value of $250,000,000.
And what is Canada selling the Empire? Last year we shipped
$500,000,000 worth of our products to other British lands, an increase
of 44.3 per cent, in six years.
The various parts of the Empire want more Canadian goods. A
demand exists among them for Canadian manufactures, or for the
products of Canadian lands or waters. But we must see that our
exports are maintained at a rigid standard, that they are packed as
consumers desire, and that our prices are right.
To encourage this growing Empire trade, eleven of Canada's twenty-
four Trade Commissioners abroad, are working in Empire centres.
They are familiar with the demands of the people among whom they
live. Their services and the information they gather are at the
command of any Canadian producer or exporter. To get into touch
with Trade Commissioners, write the Commercial Intelligence
Service, Department of Trade and Commerce, Ottawa.
When you buy Empire goods, you do a part in making possible
greater Canadian exports to these sister countries. Where we sell,
we must also buy.

Of 38 groups of manufactured goods Canada sells
the Empire to the total of
$178,000,000. It is to be
remembered that the Empire import* from all
countries these goods to
the amount of $2,571,000,-

presents a tremendous
opportunity forthe development of export on these

the world /
FROM the cold, deep waters of the seven thousand miles of British
Columbia's Pacific Coast, comes a harvest of fish that the palate of
all mankind enjoys! For over twenty years our Province has been
a leading factor in Canada's fishing industry. Progress continues
unabated...the markets to the ends of the earth demanding ever
increasing quantities.
The past ten years have seen this Industry
grow from 14 million to 27 million dollars ...,
an increase of 89%. Our annual catch totals
nearly half the entire Canadian production,
and "King Salmon," our marine silver mine
accounts for at least 15 million dollars a year.
The distribution from our Provincial hatch-
e-ies of millions of salmon eggs to renew the
1 .irvest that goes into the nets; the Treaty
between Canada and the United States for the
protection of the Pacific Halibut (March, 1923)
providing a close season from November 16th
to February 15th; modernized canneries, 83
in number, and sane Federal Fishing Laws,
carefully administered, are the foundation of
an industry that will continue to grow.
The fame of British Columbia's Whaling
Fisheries is of long standing, and has materially
increased the value of the products from this '
industry. The yearly catch, now about 400, is
taken  between  one station  on  Vancouver
Island and two stations on the Queen Char-?
lotte Islands.
Much as has been done to develop and conserve
our fishing industry, there still remains a great
deal to be accomplished. The vastness of our
waters and the extent and ruggedness of our
coast make organized protection and administration extremely costly.
But the safeguarding of our fisheries is a
matter which now commands the earnest
attention of our government, who realize the
importance of conserving this basic industry.
As the oldest Industry of our Dominion,
fishing has been one of the largest revenue
producers, and it is significant that Canada's
youngest Province, in less than twenty years,
should secure a leading position in the world
market. This aggressive search for foreign
business has been an asset which undoubtedly
has created one of the most amazing records
of our basic industries. Well may we be proud
of our Fisheries!

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!

Deep Mines Operated
In South Africa
The difficult conditions attending the conduct of mining operations at the depth reached by the
Village Deep mine, on the Rand,
were emphasized by the chairman
at a recent meoting in Johannesburg. During 1927 the average
depth at which stoping operations
proceeded was 6,089 ft., or rather
more than lj miles, vertically below the collar of No. 3 shaft. For
the first quarter of 1928 the average depth was 6,295 ft. Development operations are now being
carried on at a vertical depth of
7,200 ft., and the lowest point
reached in the west sub-incline
shaft is 7,300 ft. below the surface.
The total value of the gold
which has been produced from
placer mining operations in Yukon
Territory might conservatively be
placed at $165,500,000, according
to the Department of the Interior's
latest annual report.
Seldom, if ever, have prospects
for a satisfactory wheat crop been

than this year, stated a general
