months, again resume its importance of former days in the
activities of the district. During
the winter a consolidation of the
interests of the Stewart Mining
and Development company and
the Dunwell syndicate has been
consummated ar.d a new company
formed, which is soon to be incorporated and known as the
Dunwell Mines, Limited. This
new company will take over for
further development and operation the 14 claims of the Dunwell and Stewart mine. Active
operations are expected to commence about May 1.
Considerable work was done on

tunnels. There are three leads

NEW   ALASKA
THE fact that the New Alaska property will be worked, is most welcome
news to the entire district, both to Canadians and Americans, for though this
property is on the Alaskan side of the
boundary, it is in the district, and what
helps one part, is bound to help the whole.
Few properties in the district are so
advantageously situated as the New
Alaska, being right on established lines of
communication, and at a iow elevation.
While we have not been on the ground,
we understand from those who have been,
not being financially interested, viewed it
from a disinterested point of view, that it
is a property with great possibilities.
Patrick Daly, and also the owners, are
to be congratulated upon having secured
a good live crowd, in Vancouver and Seattle, to go ahead and put up the money
for the necessary development.
At last a step has been taken that will
have a beneficial effect upon the entire
district, for the Daly Mines Co., Limited,
have apparently a good chance of making
a mine out of the New Alaska. For if this
property proves to be half the mine that
it promises, other local capital will be encouraged to enter the field, thus doing
away with the necessity of going east for
every dollar, as has to a large extent been
the case heretofore.
last two years will not be especially remembered against him now that he is no
longer of this world. Rather will it be
permissible to say of him that his inclinations during the early days of the war were
less towards the Teutonic combination
than is popularly assumed. He was an
amiable prince and until he succeeded to
authority his major ambition was that in
which the fate and welfare of his domestic circle were largely concerned. But
as a king in a changed world and himself
a fragment of a shattered dynasty he was
more ruled than ruler. Without advisors
and lacking personal fortune it was small
wonder that he became the tool of political
manipulation and the machinations of the
last remnants of an effete monarchical
system; and on this day human nature will
absolve him from much of the responsibility for his more recent indiscretions.
SIR   JOHN   EATON
IN the passing of the presiding officer
of the gigantic Eaton firm Canada has lost
a  great  philanthropist and one of her
leading merchant princes. Before the war and all
through the weary days of its progress the late
Sir John Eaton gave of the fruits of his labors in
manner that is better known to those who have

know anything of the tremendous enterprises to
which he devoted an active attention until his recent illness will appreciate something of the part
which the Eaton family has played in the evolutionary processes through which Canadian merchandising has passed. But it will be the vivid
memory which humanity will cherish for the good
works of the late Sir John Eaton that will more
especially adorn his epitaph.

RUSH   TO   GET   GOLD
Between 5000 and 10.000 men
may this year participate in the
gold rush to Cedar creek, according to government mining
expert, who have been keeping
in touch with developments in
the Cariboo.
But while the main   body of
fortune seekers will undoubtedly
make for the Cedar preek district, it is expected that hundreds
will drop off the P. G. E. between D'Arcy and Lillooet and
work their way north into the
Chilcotin country where another
gold stampede seems to be on the
verge of breaking loose.
MINING OPERATIONS IN YUKON
Interests in New York who
have under lease extensive placer
mining properties covering many
miles in the old Fcrty-Mile dis-i
trict, Y. T., have instructed W.
J. Rendell, a Dawson engineer,
to make immediate examination
of these properties to decide
whether they would be suitable
for large operations and decide
what equipment would be necessary. A big crew will be placed
on the survey work immediately.
The old Anderson concession
on Huneker creek, one of the
best known big mining properties
in the Yukon, has been released
by the federal government to the
Klondike Government Concession Co., Limited, the owners.
The concession has been held up
since 1916 because of the failure
of the lessees to pay the wages
of the men who were hired to do
assessment work on the tract in
that year. The concession company has now paid the $7000 required to liquidate this liability.
In addition, it is stated that all
creditors will be paid in full.
The concession was originally
controlled by Tredgold interests.

of the s.s. Princess Maquinna,
consigned to the Tacoma smelter.
The company plans to make shipments at regular intervals of 20
davs.    The    first   shipment   is
smaller than the succeeding shipments will be, owing to shortage
of water on the property cutting
down the mill's output. The
shipments under normal circumstances will amount to at least
200 or 250 tons each. The low
price of copper made it necessary to shut down the plant just
iiefore the close of 1920.

Practical Joke
A practical joke was responsible for the discovery of a mine
at Jeannette, Idaho, Coeur d'Alene lake. An old man who
had arrived there from Boston,
seeking to recover his health,
put up at a small hotel. One of
the characters of the town was a
man who followed trapping and
sometimes prospecting. He soon
became acquainted with the old
man, and one day while sitting
nn the verandah oi the hotel
which overlooked the lake, Undid man asked him where there
would be a good place to look for
a mine. Now, directly acroaa
the lake waa a small point of
lam! running out into tin* water

lower than those of any other Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire.
