successful during the past winter
in Vancouver in raising ample
capital for the carrying out of
ai extensive development pro-^
gram this year on what has been
known heretofore as the Divide
.property. A new company appears to have been organized,
known as the American Mining
and Milling company, for the
purpose of carrying out this
work; and in which has been
consolidated the Mahood Mints
company (limited). The full details io connection with the undertaking a-e not as yet available; but it is known that Mr.
Mahood on his return will commence putting into effect an extensive development   program.
The wind storm which swept
up the canal, Sunday afternoon,
caused considerable inconven-
venience to the operation of the
Premier aerial tramway, by
blowing a number of trees across
the line, and in one instance
across one of the towers, necessitating a cessation of operations
for some forty-eight hours.
Morris Peterson and Albert
Johnson were in town during the
week, having come up from their
property down the canal, at the
mouth of Coon creek, where they
have been doing assessment
work. This property, known as
the Hay View, consists of four
claims staked by the owners two
years ago. .so far little work,
other than assessment, has been
done, and as the  overburden   is
PREMIER BUYS MORE GROUND
Last week, Wednesday, May 17, a deal was consummated in Vancouver, whereby the Premier Gold Mining Company have purchased,
under a three year bond, the Northern Light group, from Charles and
William Bunting of Hyder,
This property consists of eight full claims and two fractions, situated in the Cascade valley, immediately north of the present Premier
holdings, and was staked in 1910 by the Bunting Brothers and
Scotty Dilworth. The entire property was crown granted last year
by the owners. In addition to being well situated there are three well
defined leads on the property, on which there has been very little development work done; though a certain amount of diamond drilling was
performed in 1920 bv the Algunican Development company who, at that
time, had the property under bond, releasing it when they found themselves getting into financial difficulties. The total amount of the bond
is understood to be 8125,000, with $5000 cash payment. It is not known
how much work is called for under the agreement.
With the completion of this deal the Premier Gold Mining company
have acquired the ownership of, or an interest in, some fifty or sixty
claims on the Salmon river, thus giving tangible proof of their confidence  in the mining future of the district.

This district comprises the following eight mining divisiona of
the province: Bella Goola,
Skeena, Queen Charlotte, Naas
River, Portland Canal, Stikine,
Liard and Atlin. The southern
portion of the district, froin Seymour inlet to Portland canal,
lies west of the Coast range
summit. The northern portion
lies east of the Coast Range
summit which forms the Alaska-
British Columbia line, and is
therefore behind the Alaska
strip. There is consequently a
great diversity of geological and
geographical conditions which
are very favorable for prospecting and mining operations. These

whether Canada contributes to it or not.
The question whether the existing Canadian squadron or a part of it should be
maintained is trifling in comparison with
the general policy of Canada in the matter
of imperial defense.
FIGHTING   IN   PEACE
STRANGE to say the Irish Dail has
not been able to reach an agreement to
avoid further war between Free State and
republican. It is found at last that the
only people with whom the Irish can make
an agreement are the English. The
treaties have been made by the Sinn Fein
and both made lately by the Sinn Fein leaders,
and both were made in England. That was a difficult matter, but nothing to the difficulty of an
agreement between DeValera and Collins.
Now it is said that Premier Collins is about to
affirm the authority of the Irish Free State. If
he persists in this determination the same calamity
may occur as recently happened in a long and bitter fight between two armed forces in a disturbed
district when one man was wounded by a stray I
shot. Whatever happens Winston Churchill is
not likely to cause annoyance by refusing to allow
the Irish people to fight in peace.
IMMIGRATION REGULATIONS
BRITISH subjects  have the  prefer-
ence in the latest Canadian immigration
regulations. European foreigners are not excluded, but the restrictions are construed strictly
in regard to their vocation and means. Next to
settlers from the mother country and the British
dominions the preference is given to immigrants
from the United States. They are relieved of
many conditions which are considered necessary
in regard to other foreigners.    These changes are |

As this conference is called for the express
purpose of considering political, commercial and financial relations with Russia,
the course of the United States might have
been foreseen. The president and the
secretary of state have declared over and
over again that they would not recognize
the Moscow government so long as it repudiated Russia's national obligations, disregarded the property rights of American
citizens and authorized revolutionary propaganda abroad. The United States government has consistently refused to negotiate with Russia on these matters,   lt

Forest fires
Development on the Darde-
nelles group, near Usk, will be
pushed forward this season by
driving a tunnel first 100 feet on
the upper vein of the series,
which is a splendid fissure vein,
lying between porphyry and
greenstone, and averaging about
four feet wide. Samples of the
ore give a commercial value of
gold, 0.6oz.; silver, 11 oz.; copper, 2.4 percent. Mr. Bancroft,'
manager of the Granby smelter,
and Mr. Nelson, examining engineer, investigated the property last fall and no doubt intend to operate it.
The Kitselas Mountain Copper
company started last week with
an initial force for completing
the tunnel crosscutting 400 feet
to blind vein No. 2. One hundred and fifty feet have been
driven through a channel of loose
boulders and slum, the debris
flowing of Kitselas mountain and
was persistently the worst possible ground to tunnel, requiring
upwards of 20,000 lineal feet of
timber. It is now faced up in
hard [rock and will take 5 months,
with two shifts, to complete.

BLACK DIAMOND HAS GOOD ORE
PUT THEM OUT
Jack Hauber came down from
the Black Diamond group to
Alice Arm last week and states
that the property is looking better than ever. He also brought
down some fine specimens of
high grade sulphide silver ore.
Since he was down about a
month ago he has drifted five feet
along the foot wall band of lead
No. 1, and the width of the vein
increases with depth, having
widened from one foot to two
feet in a distance of five feet.
Five feet of drifting was also
ad No. 2, the thickness
I j ~��� i
of this lead remains the same.
The andesite band between the
two leads shows a decrease in
thickness, and will apparently
disappear, merging both veins
into one. Both veins are at
present depth still broken, and
consequently badly leached.
Mr. Hauber is confident that in
ten or twenty feet of further
drifting he will be in solid formation. The mineralization of
the ore remains the same, consisting of some iron, a little
coppef 2nd the highest grade
of silver sulphides.

A desert or trade rat led an old
prospector to the Fair Trade
mine in New Mexico. He was
camped on the edge of the desert prospecting for placer gold.
Among his eatables he had a
few pounds of sea biscuits or
pilot bread. One morning he
noticed, to his surprise, a piece

AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $706,192,978
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in 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; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967;| for
five years, 1991-1905, $96,507,968; for five years, 1906-1910, $125,-

1916-1920, $189,992,725; for the year 1920, $35,543,084.
PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $331,995,328
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and I
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000'
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for pros-
Peeling. ||j  !-:;i?!jf!*n
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.

reached in spots���up the Skeena
river (Canadian National railway); up the Naas river as far
as Ayanish; to the heads njf Observatory * inlet and Portland
canal; up the Unuk river; up the
Taku river; and from Skagway
over the White Pass railway to
the Atlin country.
The principal developments so
far have been at Anyox and Alice
Arm, at the head of Observatory
inlet; Stewart, at the head of
Portland canal; and Atlin, at the
extreme north end of the province, about 250 miles from
Stewart. In these few isolated
spots have been developed the
Dolly Varden, Granby mines.
Premier, and Engineer mines.
If these partially prospected
areas are any criterion, some
idea of the immense potentialities
of the balance of the belt may be
had. It is the future great
mineral producing zone of the
province.
Everything possible should be
done by the government in the
way of  opening  up navigation I
and building roads and trails, to
keep reconnaissance, prospecting
the innumerable lakes that dot
the whole country. Two weeks
reconnaissance work from such
a point as Hazelton, the most
northerly point on the Canadian
National railways, would map
the country sufficiently to select
routes of travel and stations. A
radius of 300 miles would reach
any part of the country. Prospecting parties with supplies
could be put down at any desired
point, and the extent of exploration would only be limited by
the number of parties. By this
means more of the northern interior country could be prospected in one or two seasons and
more information gained than
has been to date, or could be in
the next twenty years by present
methods.
Though developments are proving that the  formations of the
eastern contact belt are particularly favorable for the occurrence
of the  economic  minerals, the
Coast  range   and   the   western
belt,    with   their   unsurpassed
transportation   facilities   should
not be passed up by the prospector and operator.    A  low  grade
ore  that  would- not pay transportation charges from  the interior  might   make   a mine on
tidewater.   The granite belt is,
as yet, the greatest mineral producer in the district,   from the
two  mines,   the   Belmont-Sutf
Inlet  at   Surf   Inlet   and   the
Granby at Anyox.
