Now that progress and confidence are advancing the Portland Canal   mining  district  so
admirably and with such gratifying results, it would be a pity
if some shoestring outfit were
to get in bad and give any section of this district a black eye.
Public confidence has been established and that it is not mis- i
placed is shown by results already achieved.    It is too often
the case in some districts in the
past that unreliable brokers in
zeal for progress and gain have
made statements which   would
not stand up.     Until recently
this   section   was   free of  that
sort of  thing.     What little   of
"exaggeration"    brokers    may
have indulged   in does not appear to have had any harmful
influence  as  yet.     It is of the
utmost importance that   public
confidenc? be retained.     While
private corporations   may do  a
lot toward mining development,
it is pnblic money which, after
all, pays the big shot.
