High School Out-
Score Rinkydinks
In Furious Game
Basketball gets better and better.
The pay-day crowd got another
real run for its money in Wednesday nights's games. For a time it
looked as if the Rinkydinks might
actually put across the defeat which
the High School guards have been
courting lately.
Time after time Davie Wilson's
pupils lured the opposing defence
out of position, while school supporters looked anxiously for missing
stalwarts under the basket. At half
ti the Rinkydinks still led at
14-11, and the scholastics used the
interval to study the situation.
Jluart Steele decided he felt well
enough to get into the fray during
the last half, and with a little more
caution on the defence the league
leaders out-scored their opponents
13-5 to finish a scant five points up.
'I lie spectators thoroughly enjoyed the frantic ettorts of the High
School to avert defeat. Even in
this extremity, the school players
demonstrated how to play the game
cleanly. Under the critical eye of
Mr. Lee they- were charged with
only five fouls, while their antagonists accumulated eleven.
Rinkydinks: T. Cloke-8, C. Dres-
ser-9, E. Barclay-2, W. Cloke, H.

Mariners Win From Pirates
The Pirates and the Mariners
,, swarmed on to the floor reinforced
' by Mrs. McTaggart and Mrs, McKay, and joined battle very interestingly.
They mixed it so well that when
the tide of combat seemed to slack,
en, some of the combatants changed
colors and fought against former
allies. The Mariners get credit for
an 18-6 victory, Miss Gordon con
tributing twelve points.
Coke Plant Win From
In .the senior game the Coke
Plant upheld its reputation as a
good team, and the Concentrator
did little to avoid going uown in
history as a rather rough one.
Coke Plant got away to a four-
point lead, but were out-played
during most of the first fyalf, trailing
at 18-11 In the second half they
drew even and for a minute were
leading. The advantage swung
this way and that, with the rival
factions roaring encouragement.
But Concentrator had just enough
edge on field goals to win out at
34-30, although Coke Plant had
enough chances on free throws to
win any ordinary game.
The result ties up the standing
again, and the rival coaches must
think up tatics for the next battle
on the 17th. Meanwhile, each team
must face the Mechanics.

Friday, February 3rd. was real
basketball. The lighter team from
the High School struggled gamely
to hold their Public School rivals
down to 16-14 in the first half,
during which Stewart Barclay scored 11 points. In the second half,
Johnny Gillies made four baskets,
and the High School seemed to
have the game won in the last few
minutes. But the time went on

Favorable Comment on
McGrath Zinc Ore
A copy of the preliminary report
of the Minister of Mines for 1927
was recently received.
H. T. James, resident engineer
for the North-western Mineral
Division, in his report on the
Alice Arm district, makes favor-
able comment on the zino deposits
on McGrath mountain.
He states: "It had been hoped
that some company would see its
way clear to do some work on the
zinc showings ou McGrath mountain. 4 or 5 miles from Alice Arm,
but up to the present time the
only deal which has been mentioned is a short-term option taken by
an American oompany. Whether
or not this company has applied
for an extension of its option, I
have not heard. The mountain is
admirably situated, and I have
thought—and still think—the
claims on it are worth examining,
but unfortunately zinc is not an
attractive metal at the present

The question being asked by
a large number of mining property
owners throughout the province,
is, why do not the big companies
develop more properties, and the
question has never been fully
answered. Every year the big
companies employ hundreds of
mining engineers, who travel
throughout the country, looking at
properties, but rarely having the
courage to recommend one.
Sometimes of course, the engineer can not be blamed. Transportation problems may be too
big; the price of the property too
high, making it impossible to talk
business with the owner except in
hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Another problem confronting the
big company is that if one property
is satisfactory, but the ore body
not large enough, and the surrounding claims are desired, each
property owner stands pat for
from $60,000 to $100,000 for his
piece ot ground. Under such
conditions a consolidation of several properties is impossible, as no
mining company will pay from half
a million to a million dollars for
ground on which a big ore tonnage
has not already been developed.
Major Angus W. Davis, M. E.
writing in the Mining and Industrial Record, says in part of his
article, that: "In Canada in recent
years a number of big organizations
have been very active in the search
for new mines. In the main their
policies have been sound. A
great many prospects have been
looked over, usually claims on
which a little development work
has been done by the original
owners, and an occasional property
tried out, That every property
selected for further development
will be successful is not expected;
but if, at even very infrequent intervals a likely mine is discovered
the operations of the company concerned, taken as a whole, are more
than justified.
"There is a distinct tendency for
some, but by no means all the big
companies operating in the country
to confine their investigations to
mines in which more or less tonnage has been developed and
allow smaller operators and syndi-
Premier Co. Acquires
Silverado Mine
The sale of the Silverado Mine
at Stewart to the Premier Gold
Mining Co. as recommended by the
Directors of the Silverado, was
ratified by the shareholders recently. They voted to wind up the
present Silverado Mines, Ltd.,
distribute the cash assets and give
the shareholders 450,000 shares of
stock in the new Silverado Consolidated Ltd., which is being organized to carry out the deal.
General Manager Dale Pitt of
the Premier Company stated that
his company will give formal
approval to the transaction at its
meeting in Vancouver on February
13 th.
Under the agreement the Premier secured the option of purchase of 550,000 shares in the
Silverado Consolidated, out of the
million authorized, for which it
pays half a million dollars.

Trail Smelter Draws From
Large Territory
Trail smelter now draws ore
shipments from an extraordinary
wide range of territory. It received last year 36,535 tons from mines
in the State of Washington. Ore
came overland 1500 miles from the
Pas in Manitoba; also from Car-
cross, Y. T., and three mines in
Alaska were shippers.
Pulp and Paper Making is
Big Industry
The place of outstanding importance the pulp and paper industry
has come to occupy in Canadian
trade is very clearly shown. The
export of pulp and paper goods
during the calendar year 1926 was
valued at $121,414,513, of which
newsprint going to the United
States accounted for $114,090,595
cates of limited capital to do the
preliminary work and incidentally
most of the gambling. It is to
people of this latter type that a lot
of our mining prosperity is due.
They constitute the gambling element in the game. They can not
scatter their bets, as it were, and
win out in the long run, but are in
the same class as the roulette
player of limited funds, who bets
on a single number. The fact
that the people last referred to are
usuually men more closejy in touch
with the prospectors of the area
they are identified with than is the
case with the larger companies,
gives them an ■ advantage that
counteracts their lack of capital."

The Mineral Province of Western Canada
Has produced Minerals as follows: Placer Gold, 178,018,548; Lode Gold, $126,972,318; Silver, $80.-
787,003; Lead, $106,976,442; Copper, $209,967,068; Zinc, $50,512,557; Coal and Coke, $284,699,133;
Structural Materials and Miscellaneous Minerals, $50,175,407, making its mineral production to the end
of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for fiva years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five yeare-

Production Last Ten Years, $429,547,755
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological

Enormous Dividends Paid by
Ontario Mines
The mines of northern Ontario
will distribute dividends amounting to over $13,000,000 in 1927.
When the last figures were pub-
\ lished at the end of 1925 these
same mines were paying out
$85,000,000 a year in wages and
supplies. It must be close to
$100,000,000 by now. This makes
$113,000,000 a year.
High Protection Keeps Home
Says the Toronto Star: "The
United States had a population of
75,000,000 before its foreign trade
was equal to that of Canada today." But the United States always retained its home market by
high protection. Having command
of that market it was not forced to
seek market in other countries until
the era of mass production commenced to set in.

"The Friendly Road," toy Davdd
Grayson, which is well-known to
many lovers ot nature, depicts Incidents and friendliness of people
along country roads and In the rural
districts. There Is, however, a road
dn the Canadian Rockies the friendliness of which is not due to mortals
as la Grayson's book, but to the
friendliness of animals. Animals
termed wild, but In this Instance a
•word that cannot be applied to those
on the Banff-Windermere. Highway.
9 There Is ipossiibly no more beautiful road than this which runs from
Banff to Lake Windermere, in the
Columtoia River Valley. The distance
of 104 miles is spectacular and the
scenes are constantly changing. The
views from the high passes looking
down into valleys, thousands of feet
below, tiny lakes surrounded by al-
pine meadows, rivers crossed and re-
crossed, and glimpses of cascades
tumbling down slopes from dizzy
heights are Intriguing and- beautiful.
To this natural beauty Is "added
that of seeing the animals in their
natural haunts. Rocky Mountain
sheep are seen on the road along
Vermilion lakes not far from Banff.
They are sotame that Often motors

Bozo, a Mack bea-, -is u friend to
many motorists on the Banff-Windermere road. Hf> comes out on the
highway as if he had sole right to
it. He does not resent these invaders in the least and really wishes to
show his friendliness. Sometimes (he
has lunches handed to him and the
remarks of "nice old chap, fine old
fellow," please him tremendously,
and he will try to come even nearer.
Bozo no doubt had many dreams
during the winter of summer tourists, and possibly has figured out ln
true bear fashion just how to get
the most out of the tourist season.
Deer are seen, also, on this famous
highway, though not as ' often as
other animals, They are regular visitors to Banff, and aTe frequently
seen on the streets of the village.
There are hundreds of miles of
smooth motor roads through the
Canadian Rockies, and devotees of

overlooked in it. "We need our
transportation facilities increased

that the Province of British Columbia will have the largest per
capita purchasing power of any
province this year. It points out
that last year Ontario led the way

the two was very small indeed. It
On the basis of the latest government returns and by carefully estimating production for the balance
of the year. The Financial Post
Year Book credits Ontario with
receiving the largest income in
1927. Quebec continues to occupy
second place. Alberta, which had
been in fifth position iu respect to
income, moved up to third place.
This is the best showing  made by
any province in recent years. Following in order of importance from
the standpoint of gross revenue
were British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New
Brunswick, Prince Edward Island
and Yukon.

last year harvested the largest crop
in its history. No doubt this was
the factor which moved that province up from fifth place to third
place. British Columbia, however,

province, is in an exoellent position
owing to the variety of its products.

This is the largest locomotive in the British Empire and it has just
been placed in service by the Canadian National Railways. Because of
certain new features it has been called the Northern Type to distinguish
it from other types of locomotives. It is entirely Canadian made and
in weight, size and power it is greater than any other locomotive in the
Dominion. It is capable of carrying an 18-steel car passenger train 511
miles without change and unlike other locomotives it is convertible from
passenger to freight service. Forty locomotives are being built on the
order of S. J. Hungerford, operating vice-president of the Canadian
National Railways, all of them in Canada. The round or Vandcrbilt type
of tender used on The_ Northern permits of greater visibility to the rear
and another feature is the placing of the whistle close to the smoke
stack. This increases the distance at which the sound can be heard and
also saves the ears of the enginemen.
