Interesting Survey and
Forecast for Future Operations.
the Metal Producers
Bound to Follow Peace
Negotiations.
In an interesting survey of the mining operations of 1919 and a forecast
fur 1920, Hon. William Sloan, minister
of mines, expresses tlie greatest confidence in British Columbia's premier
Industry, and greatest natural resource. ,
"While the actual mineral output for
1919 somewhat fell below that of 1918
there Is nothing discouraging In that
fact, The cessation of hostilities
brought to an abrupt termination a
huge war demand for cupper, lead and
zinc and production of these minerals
was forced to mark lime pending the
readustment of peace conditions.
"This readustment has been delayed
owing to the long drawn out peace negotiations, which in turn have prevented industrial peace conditions, However, we may look for an early settlement followed by the resumption of
great industrial activity along all
lines. This should bring ln its train
a big new demand lor staple minerals
ui increased prices
Silver is Sensation.
"Silver has, of course, been the sensational mining feature of the year.
The extraordinarily high price of the
tnelul is due to well known causes
and those will probably obtain for several years to come. China and India
will continue 10 absorb great quantities of sliver in liquidation of their
trade balances and war loans to the
Allies and ii is well known that when
silver once reaches those countries,
.specially India, it diaapeaxs from ihe
world's visible supply. India seems to
possess an insatiable appetite for sil
ver which, when once it goes into the
.niters of that country never again
emerges Into world circulation,
The high price of silver has bad a
[ratifying stimulating effect upon sil
vet milling in British Columbia and
has led to the reuvenaUon of must of
the old silver camp.- such at Slocan
and Mnsworth and to the opening up
nf mum new ones, such us those of

���one very encouraging feature of
the situation In the province today
seems to be a clearer understanding
of the fact thai mining is a business
winch can be and should be conducted
on sound business lines, list as cure-
fully and conservatively as farming
or manufacturing, Investors by realizing this fact will be taking fewer
risks and the industry will greatly
benefit. I notice that even the banks
are beginning to look kindly upon mining as a business and one bank is at
present advertising its willingness to
assist legitimate mining enterprises,
in local press. This is a very good
omen, for recognition of mining as a
legitimate business enterprise will do
much to establish it in the confidence
of the public.
To Restore Trade.
The mining Industry of British Columbia can do a great deal Inward restoring Canada's trade balance. Perhaps no other in Canada can do bo
much. The production of silver in
this province should In a year or so
predominate thai of anj other province or state on the continent and as
silver is iu foreign demand al an enormously enhanced value Its production
is of national as well us ol local Im- -
portance.
The same thing applies wiUi almost equal force to gold and to the
base metals, (iu ihe whole I believe

STICKING   TO   FACTS
This paper does not claim to be infallible, but it does claim that
in its reports on mining matters it aims to stick as closely to facts as
is humanly  possible.
When reports of "strikes" and new discoveries are made, it wants
them verified. If it hasn't first hand information it will say so. putting
the  responsibility  for  the  reports  where   it  belongs.
There is no need for wild statements nor florery discourses concerning the mineral resources of the district. The properties will
stand on their merits, and Portland Canal News will be satisfied with
giving bald statements of fact regarding mining operations. These
will  be  interesting  enough.
But these statements,  if published as facts,  will  be facts.
The Portland Canal News will father no wildcat schemes, and in
justice to the prospectors of the district it can truthfully say that up
to  date it has not been asked to  do so.
As to mining deals, a deal is not a deal, so far as this paper is
concerned, until the papers are signed, sealed and delivered. There
is many a slip twixt cup and lip, and sometimes ."i deal is spoiled by
premature   publicity.

METAL PRICES
ARE VERY LOW
Scanning metal prices uf today and
comparing them with those of five
year.-, ago. one is apl to Jump at the
conclusion that the miner of zinc, lead
or sliver is obtaining, a remarkably
good figure for his products and won
der why such condition does not relied Itself un dividends. !s'oi for
years has ihe Northwest dividend record been as low a.> i sit today, and
the anomaly of apparently high metal
price with meager dividends is suiti-
I'ient iii cause one to Htop and consider the situation.
In the year 1913, present prices for
silver, .upper, lead and speller would
have caused operators of the West to
sing liosannas. Taking a general review Of the situation a . it now stands.
but little figuring is required to demonstrate the fact that metal prices
of  today   are   really   lower   than   five
o
years ago.
As'to gold, volume.-, have been writ-
tell, printed and spoken lately, and
much that is conflicting. The only
thing we can be sure of is that tire
price of the metal remains just where
it was iu 1813, while costs have increased almost 100%, To look al it
from another angle, the gold miner is

MINING OFFICIAL
GOES TO NEW YORK
On business connected with .the
President silver Mines, Ltd., Stuart
O'Brien, Becretai-y-treaaurer, left for
New York last Monday While east
Mr. O'Brien will also take up other
Interests in the Alice Arm section.
The President group will be one ot
the new properties operating next
spring, it  is hoped.   The ore showing
is   excellent,   being   the   same   as   the
general character of ore carrying the
high silver values of Ihe Salmon River
section. As a mining proposition the
ground has advantages Of situation,
being un the wagon -road, and workable by tunnel. A recent assay from
me on the President went 53 ounces
in silver. Officials of the company
are well pleased with the encountering of the vein in the new Alaska
where a I tin-foot tunnel is being driven under contract to McKenzie &
Carlson, This tunnel has croscut
thirty feet of ore thus far.
W. .1. Van Houten, president of the
company, is in Los Angeles spending
the holidays, and expects to return to
Vancouver early iu the spring, by
which time Mr. O'Brien will have returned. Arrangements to start up
operations will then be made.

TO HAVE yOITB teeth attended
to. Do not wail till aches
force you. If your teeth arc in
had condition it means your health
is being steadily undermined.
Keep them attended to properly
and von will be saved a lot of
misery. Nowadays dental science
has removed largely the former
fear of pain and Ihe old-time fears
arc gone.
