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 es"jlTncicr   F16W
tablished and that it is not mis-| j
...     .   ��� ..   , management
placed is shown by results al-1
ready 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
confidence be retained. While
private corporations may do a
lot toward mining development,
it is pnblic money which, after
all, pays the big shot.
