of  Mrs.   M.   R.   Jamieson   of

An agreement was arrived at
this week between Fred and
William Jancowski, and the
Stewart Land company, whereby
the former will take over on a
lease, subject to purchase, the
old power plant at the corner of
Columbia and Ninth streets, together with the telephone lines
and water mains. While the
mains were put in some 10 or 12
years ago, and have not been
used for approximately eight
years, there is every reason to
believe that they are still in
good condition, and serve the
whole of the town from Ninth
street south to Fourth.
In connection with the telephone system, if the Jancowski
brothers can get sufficient subscribers they will instal a switch
board, doing away with the
present party lines. But in the
event of sufficient subscribers
not being obtainable the present
system will be maintained, with
the exception that it will be kept
in better order than has been
possible heretofore.

As yet no adequate economic reason has
been given for the heavy premium that
Canada has paid to the United States in
the past few years.   If it had been the result of the adverse, balance of trade the
exchange would still be heavily against
this country.   We have not redressed the
balance of trade, but are continuing to
buy from the United States more than that
country buys from us.    The explanation
lies in the field of psychology more than
economics.   Canadians seem to have paid
the premium on United States money because it was demanded, and now they stop
paying because they can do business without it.   This is not much of an explanation of our payment of twenty to  fifty
millions a year for several years as depreciation of perfectly good Canadian money.
But it is the substance of the reasons that
are given by the financial experts.

employment situation. They were all idle last
year, but are all working now, and, in the minister's opinion, have become a factor in the labor
situation of the province.

MINING   AND   NATIONAL   WEALTH
In the development of her
mineral resources Canada has the
basis on which to construct one
of the richest nations in the
world. A knowledge of the facts
here presented should do more
than anything else to dispel the
pessimism which has of late
marked the utterances of some
of our public men; and should
have the effect of bestirring the
nation to a determination to utilize these natural resources to the
utmost. Now is the time for the
Canadian people to demote a reasonable proportion of their capi
tal and energy to the development of the mineral industry and
to display their confidence in the
value of the great heritage of
which they are possessed.
The director of the United
States geological survey recently
declared that the nation which
exports its raw materials to other
countries to be manufactured becomes the hewer of wood and
drawer of water to the manufacturing countries. The Canadian people do not propose to become the hewers of wood and
drawers of water to anybody,
PICKED   FROM   THE   DUMP
Platinum is now quoted at $105
an ounce.
The outlook for gold mining is
most promising.
The gold belt of Mount Baker
is being traced by prospectors
into British Columbia.
Thirty-five years ago the mineral production of Canada was
only $2.23 per head of the population. Today it is $21.50, thank
you.
The gold production of 1922
should aggregate 300,000 ounces
or more, and this production will
make the record in British Columbia gold mining.
Ridium slumped to $1,967,319
an ounce, last week. No ene
was hurt in Hyder.
The silver outlook for 1922 is
splendid. It is expectied to reach
between 7,000,000 and 8,000,000
ounces, the highest production in
the history of the province.
In former years the Boundary
district was the largest mineral
producing section of the province. Today the place of honor
in metal mining goes to northern
British Columbia, which last year
produced 65 per cent of the total
metals; 63 per cent of the gold;
57.2 per cent of the silver, and
89.93 per cent of the copper.

The Mineral Province of Western Canada
Has produced Minerals valued as follows: Placer Gold, $76,177,403;
Lode Gold, $105,557,977; Silver. $55,259,485; Lead. $48,330,575;
Copper, $166,393,488; Zinc, $21,884,531; Coal and Coke. $225,-

Minerals, $1,210,639; making its'Mineral Production to the end of
1921 show
AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $734,259,619
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, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years, 1906-1910, $125,-
534,47.; for five years, 1911-1915, 81-2,072,603; for five years,

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $336,562,897
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fee-
lower than those of any oth.r 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.
