Because certain geologists and
engineers do not look with favor
on some properties in this district, is no reason for discouragement even granting they are
more often right than  wrong.
It is the history of the greatest
mining properties that they were
'turned down" at some time or
other.   We have our own great
Premier mine as   tangible evidence of this.     It   will be  re-1
called that   geologists couldn't

trained men passed it up. Nevertheless the Premier is demonstrating it is probably as great a i
body of silver-gold ore as was
erer discovered. And it would
be unreasonable to think that
there is but one profi'table ore
body in a district so great as
this and where the surface showings are so extensive.

Nevadans who are now in this

of Tonopah and Goldfields and
how they for awhile were discredited by the men who know
all about the earth's crust. It
has been the history of all mining districts and the Portland

Emma mine, near Greenwood,
owned by the Consolidated, is
being reopened in a large way
under the supervision of R.M.
Macaulay.
James Poggi is shipping 30,
tons of ore from the Last Chance
one mile from Greenwood. This
is one of the oldest claims in the
district but it had reverted tithe Government.
The Wallace Mountain Mines
company is working the Sally
and Rob Roy on Wallace mountain.
wes carrying for other companies. Operations of its Mexican
mines are now approximating
90 per cent of capacity. Rapid
strides are being made toward
completing the pumping out of
properties which became flooded
during the years of disuse. The
Mexican smelters are now running full blast. With promise of
a stable government in Mexico
the officials hope for reestab-
lishment of normal conditions
under which the company was
able to show net income of six
dollars a share from its Mexican
properties alone in former years.

Col. Lowry has leased the
Greenwood Ledge to G.W.A.;
Smith. The Ledge is not only
the oldest mining camp newspaper in the province but is the
most valuable arid useful jour-
which reaches other exchange
tables.
Hecla Mining Co., of Burke,
Idaho, has announced its regular dividend of fifteen cents per
share on capital of one million
shares of par value of 25 cents.
This disbursemedt will brino,
total for the year up to $500,000
and grand total to $8,355,000.
W.J.   Elmendorf,   M. E.,   of
Seattle, and G.T. Morgan of thej
same city were recently looking
over some properties in Sandon.
The newly erected Noble Five
mill at Sandon has commenced
operations.   The mill has three j
months ore on the dump to work
on.
American Smelting & Refining
Co. earned the $2 semi-annua!
dividend on the common stock-
by a comfortable margin to Jijne
30, a   decided   contrast  to  the:
i
same period last year when only
4 cents a share was earned and
a deficit of 1,195,464 was  left
after the payment of common
dividend.       In    the   final    six
months of last year the  net in-!
creased  to 2.] 2 a share on the
common,  and    orogressive   im-'
provement has since been shown;
largely due to more favorable
conditions  in   Mexico   and   the
better buying of copper.    In the
first six months of this year the;
company was able to dispose of
40 to 50 per cent of the metal  it
The Granby company is putting up a stiff legal fight to retain its townsite at Cassidy, Van
couver   Island.     The   company
took every possible care as  to
title   before    starting  to   mine
coal and   building   the    model |
town.    In an action  by the E & I
N railway Judge Gregory found
against Granby.   The case will |
be fought to the London courts
if necessary.
One of the biggest industrial
mining deals of the decade is
being negotiated, including the
purchase of the Blue Diamond
co;:l mines at Brule, Alta., covering more thar six square miles
and producing more than 500
tons of steam and coking coal
daily, and the Canadian Coal
Fields, Ltd, a far greater tract,
some thirty miles from the Blue
Diamond and known to contain
anthracite.

BOOK ON  WEST INDIES  AND GUIANA.
A booklet on the British West Indies and British Guiana, just issued by
the Bank of Montreal, is a most timely
publication in view of the new trade
agreement between Canada and the
West Indies now awaiting the ratification of the respective governments.
The booklet gives a concise and interesting description of the salient features of the various colonies which are
party to the agreement, including the
physical characteristics, area, popula-
tion and principal exports and imports.
It shows there are most promising
markets awaiting development by enterprising Canadian merchants and industrial firms. Copies of the booklet
may be obtained from any branch of
the Bank of Montreal.
