Good times have again returned
to the province of B. G, and the
re-adjustment period following the
war is gone for ever. Money and
jobs are becoming more plentiful,
and the peak has not yet been
reached. Unlike the real estate
and wildcat mining boom of 1910,'
the present boom is being built on
a solid foundation which will benefit the country for all time.
Throughout the north, big mining
companies are spending enormous
sums of money developing new
properties and enlarging their
present plants, and foremost among
these is the Granby Co. of Anyox.
This company has been mining in
the province for the past 24 years,
and will, from all appearances be
here digging out the ore for a much
longer period. Mining men are
commencing to flow into the Alice
Arm district, and the prospects
for a busy summer are exceedingly
bright. The northwestern mining
district produced 67.7 per cent,
of the tonnage of ore mined in
British Columbia in, 1922, carrying
about 55 per cent, of the total
value of the metal output of the
province. As we have stated
before, all that the district needs to
develop the unlimited rich ore
deposits js capital, combined with
good sound judgement and a
knowledge of mining. Northern
B. C. undoubtedly has the goods
in regard to mineral wealth, and
this fact the world is beginning to
The Copper
Premier Oliver is indignant over the
charges of Mr. W. J. Bowser, K. C,
leader of the opposition, that when in
opposition, many years ago, Mr.
Oliver refused to support Sir Richard
McBride in the latter's efforts to secure
equalization of freight rates.
"Because I am fighting hard for the
interests of the province and making
considerable headway in this regard,
Mr. Bowser naturally makes light of
my efforts and seeks to place me in a
wrong light," commented Premier
Oliver. "However, here I have the
goods," and he turned up the journals
of the Legislature for 1907, where it is
disclosed that* John Oliver moved a
resolution, seconded by Mr. Henderson, asking that an investigation be
made and that the freight rates question bp thoroughly gone into. The
motion was resolved in the affirmative
and representations were made to the
board of railway commisioners during
their sessions in Victoria.
"That surely shows I have been
consistent in this connection from the
start," is the Premier's answer.
Lots of men who claim to have
come from fine families appear to
be a long way from home.

Special to the Herald
Statistically, copper is in better
shape today thati at any time in the
last five years. Refined stocks of
metal, all sold but not delivered,
amount to urider 229,000,000 pounds in
April, 1921. Export shipments for
first quarter, of this year were 198,000,
000 pounds, the largest in three years,
and compare with 167,000,000 pounds
in first quarter, 1922, and 112,000,000
pounds in same months 1921 Domes,
tic shipments of copper continue at
record breaking rate. In the three
months to March 31st., they totalled
nearly 100,000,000 pounds increase or
more than 100 per cent, over same
three months last year, making total
movement of export and domestic
copper of over 590,000,000 pounds.
Refined output of copprr in March
amounted to 186,000,000 pounds, compared with 104,211,980 pounds in March
1922, being largest since the war.
In the first quarter of this year,
total output of refined metal amounted
to over 519,000,000 pounds. In short
American, refineries are producing at
the rate of almost 2,100,000,000 pounds
of copper annually. Largest year's
output during the war was 2,432,385,
290 pounds, in 1917.        f    '
Huge though this outpouring of
metal is domestic and foreign demand
is keeping ahead of it with Europe
taking about 60 per cent, of what she
normally does. It is not difficult to
conceive of a sharp increase in exports
should Germany finally settle her indemnity question. The following
table shows in quarterly periods refined copper (in pounds) with comparisons:—
1st. quarter 1923, output 519,000,000,
surplus 229,000,000.
1st. quarter 1922, output 231,000,000,
surplus 461,000,000.
1st. quarter 1921, 375,000,000, surplus
Though copper has dipped .in price,
it is good opinion that the recession
will be of but short duration and the
statistical condition of the metal
would seem to bear this out;
Attorney-General A. M. Manson
has about completed plans for the
thorough reorganization of the provincial police. For two weeks conferences have been held, with police chiefs
and inspectors present. The new
plans will make the police a semi-mil
itary organization, with special
training provided for the officers. A
uniform will be worn and every
attempt made to have the force as
highly efficient as possible.
So lovingly he holds within     •
His hands the tiny seeds and sees.
A vision of bright fairy things,
That soon will flutter in the sun,
Like butterflies on flaming wings.
So lovingly he lays them down
In beds made soft and warm to sleep,
And carefully above their heads,
For fear of bitter wind and storm,
A magic coverlet he spreads.
Polytechnic Institute
Enlarges Its Scope
Mr. J, Pinder-Moss, director of the
Northern Polytechnic Institute is at
present making a tour of the central
part of B. O. from Prince Rupert to
Prince George, for the purpose of establishing classes in the interior
towns, which classes will commence
operations next fall.
In a letter to the Herald, Mr. Pinder-
Moss says, that his efforts are meetiug
with success. The School. Boards of
Terrace, Hazelton, New Hazelton and
Telkwa have decided to conduct
classes during the next winter and the
other towns along the C. N. Railway
will undoubtedly follow .suit 'when
they have been interviewed. Anyox
and Prince Rupert will also conduct
classes during the coming winter.
Mr. Pinder-Moss also intends to visit
Surf Inlet, Swanson Bay, Bella Ooola,
Alice Arm, Anyox and Stewart at an
early date.
Arrangements have been made to
carry the whole expense of the Institute and its classes, without any
expense of any kind to the various
School Boards except the heating and
lighting of the school .room on class
nights, so that there is now no excuse
for any small town holding back and
denying education to members of the
community who are anxious to improve their knowledge.
Mining News of Stewart
The sum of $16,000 was realized, at
Stewart by the government sale of
lots, and lots are still being sold.
Development work on the Bush
property at Stewart has re-commenced
with a force of ten men. Reports that
the property is controlled, by an
English syndicate can not be verified.
Development work has commenced
on the Stoner property. The property,
is bonded by the Trites-Wilson interests and is on the Alaskan side of the
international boundary.

Game on Monday
Victoria—The Pacific Great Eastern
Railway; that unwelcome i foundling
inherited by the Oliver Government
from its predecessor, is becoming a
real railway at last. So reports Hon.
J. D. McLean, Minister of railways,
who has returned from an inspection
of tho Government line. The road
bed is in good condition and plans
have been completed for the provision
of a good service this year. Sleeping
cars1 and a dining car have been added
to the equipment and travelers are
now able to make the trip to and from
Quesnel in comfort.
The minister states that while the
^province is shouldering over $40,000,000
of a burden in carrying the P. Q. E.,
still there is no way of getting rid of
the obligation and his determination
is to turn it into a genuine asset. A
strong bid is being made for a fair
share of the tourist business coming to
the Province this year, and before the
summer is over plans will have been
completed for the settling of many
new farmers along the line.       *

they secured1 in the first inning.
Draudson did not seem to be pitching as good as we have seen him do
before. The Miners were hitting
hitting him pretty regular, and by
poor fielding on the part of the

four runs in one inning, which

The secret of
good beer lies
in purity—
That's why Casoade Beer has for 35 years
been British Columbia's favorite health
beverage. No expense has been spared to
ensure purity. It has cost a million dollars to build a plant to accomplish this.
But after testing Cascade Beer, you agree
that it has been worth it.
