DONATES   CLAIM
George Cameron was in town over the week end, ancl
before returning up the valley to hi3 properties, recorded
the S. C. A. claim, which he is donating to the Citizens'
Association for the Hall Fund. This claim, which is situated on the west side of Bear river, opposite the mouth of
Bitter Creek and just south of the International group, has
a showing on it traceable on the surface for some little
distance. In the old boom days a tunnel was driven in 50
feet on this lead which, at the portal, is only about 8 to 10
inches wide, but in the foce is only two feet and a half
wide. It is the intention to later on in the seaFon nffle
this claim, the proceeds to go to the fund which will be
raised for the building of a Community Hall. Mr. Cameron
did not have time while on the ground to get any samples
for assaying, but will bring some down with him next
week. At present pieces of the ore taken from the
surface of the lead can be seen at the Portland Canal
News office.

Fifteen men are now employed
on the Indian property with two
shifts working underground, and
a crew on the trail���the latter
being in bad condition from the
melting snow. The underground
work consist! of the driving of a
crosscut from the main tunnel,
which has for its purpose the
cutting of a mineraliz*-d zone,
and an ore body exposed on the
surface, showing six feet of lead
ore on the hanging wall. Owing
to the fact that the showing is
very promising on the surface.
the result of the crosscut being
driven to cut it at depth, is looked
forward to with keen anticipation. While this work ia being

The only new work undertaken
'so far is the Pear river-Naas

.barge of Tim Williams, left to
do this work on Tuesday, which
will include brushing out the old
trail, and in some places, where
it has been Hooded by beaver
dams, B new trail will be cut to
follow the high ground. Two
bridges have gone out near the
glacier, and at one of these about
30 feet of rock work will be done
to do away with the bridge entirely. As in the old days, this
trail will rim over the ice at the
glacier for about one third of :>

will be completed to Meziadin

when a start will be made on the

After Mr. Mackenzie King had organized
his cabinet, with Sir Lome. Gouin in a
conspicuous place, it was generally understood that the tariff would not follow the
1919 program. Mr. Fielding's budget
cause less surprise than would have
greeted a budget in accord with the platform. Yet the people were not quite prepared for the information that Mr. Fielding was against the platform from the beginning. As a practical administrator
Mr. Fielding was obliged to abandon the
platform whether he openly condemned it
or not. It was an impossible tariff program and whatever the Conservatives at
Ottawa may resolve, no government could
follow the platform without financial,
economic and political misfortune.

THE   GREAT   PAYMASTER
IT seems to be hardly worth while to
talk about of the cancellation of Britain's
debt to the United States in consideration
of Britain cancelling three times as much
owed her by other countries, including
Germany. We are all trying to say pleasant things of the United States by way of
promoting the era of good feeling. But
this disposition does not require us to expect the United States to be so generous
as Great Britain to an impoverished world.
For two or three centuries Great Britain has poured out her wealth to assist her
European allies in times of stress. Such
help has been offered and accepted or
sought and granted as a matter of course.
The nation has become accustomed to be

FIELDING'S   EXPLANATION
MU. FIELDING'S statement that he
never liked the tariff platform adopted by
the Liberal party in 1919 ia an interesting
announcement.   Made aa an interruption
in the middle of Mr. Meighen's speech on
the budget, the declaration attracted more
-mention than anything said by the leader
of the opposition.   No statement made on
the tariff thia week by any minister or
member will be likely to inapirt more press

THE   PIONEER
He is swart from the glow of the mercilless sun,
And his muscles are sore from the work he has done;
He has builded his home where the prairie wolves roam ���
He's the Hewer, the Blazer of Trails.
He is crude with the strength of the seeker of toil;
From the hot, barren wastes he is gathering spoil
For a nation that lives from tlie bounty he gives-
He's the Builder, tthe Winner of Ways.
Where the silent wastes bake in the summer's hot glow,
Where thc forests are choked in the shroud of the snow,
By his brain and his brawn a new nation is born-
He goes forward to conquer new realms.
And the world has its heroes of lace and gold braid,
That are honored and wined for the waste they have made;
But the world little knows of the debt that it owes
To the Hewer, the Blazer of Trails. .      ,

PUT THEM OUT
A concentrator of 500 tons capacity    at    Kimberley,      East
: Kootenay, for the great Sullivan
; zinc mine, will be   be proceeded
j with at once, according to infor-
!mationjust  given  out  by the
i Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company   of   Canada.   The
construction and the mill will be
designed    and    built   by    the
company.
This new concentrator, which
the size of any existing concentrator iu the Kootenay. with the
exception of the plant at Trail
which will be nearly ten times
the size of any existing concentrator in the Kootenay, with the
exception of the plant at Trail
that it is to release, will cost between $1,250,000 and $1,500,000
and it is expected that it will be
I ready for ooeration early in 1923.
When the new concentrator is
ready for commission,   two   results will follow:   The output of
the Sullivan mine will be greatly
expanded.   Also the Trail  plant
will become available for the ores
of the company's great group of
I Rossland properties, whose out-
| put will consequently become expanded also.    For two years a
great Sullivan   concentrator  at
Kimberley, and a great concentrator for the Rossland ores, to
' be located near Trail, have  been
on the program of the Consolidated, but the depression  intervened to defer work.
Further power development at
Bonnington Falls by the West
Kootenay Power and Light company, a subsidiary of the Consolidated, will be required as part
of the program.

smaller. Durinli the year the
accumulated stocks of copper
throughout the world were
greater than any other metal,
with the result that the ruling
price was low.
Through the co-operation of
their various departments and
the staff, the cost of copper production has been reduced from
15.94 cents per pound in 1920 to
11.65 cents in 1921. The average
price obtained for copper last
vear was 12.75 cents per pound
compared with 17.85 cents in
1920. This big drop in price had
a very detrimental effect on the
year's revenue of the company,
which, after writing off $300,000
for depreciation, showed a net
operating deficit of $287,161.04.
A total of 913,008 tons of ore
was smelted in the company's
furnaces during the year, the
total copper production being
29,970,651 pounds, while the
other metal yield was 493,283
ounces of silver and 8838 ounces
of gold. This shows a decrease
I in the silver production, as com-1
pared with the previous year,
, but an increase in geld and
copper.)
The company's colliery at Ca-
sidy, produced 215,211 tons of
marketable coal; 125,686 tons
were sold. Besides the new
storage dam, already well under
way, and when complete will
bring about an annual saving of
from $150,000 to $200,000 in fuel
oil, the directors recommend tht*
erection of a concentrating plant
of 1000 tons daily capacity al
Anyox, to treat a large reserve of
silicious ore that can not profitably he smelted directly, and it
its likely that work will be commenced on the erection of this
plant before the end of tht year.

The mining laws of-this Province are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any other Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal feea.

It'a a gay old world when you're gay,
And a glad old world when you're glad;
6_T whether you play
Or go toii.Bg away,
It's * ,ad old world when you're sad.
It's a grand old world if you're great,
And a mean old world if you're small;
it's a world full of hate
For the foolish to prate
Of the uselessness of it all.
It's a beautiful world to see,
Or it's dismal in every zone;
The thing it must be,
In your gloom or your glee,
Depends on \ ourself alone.

A Flapper
A flapper is a female of the
genus homo, generally ranging
from 13 to 17 years of age. Her
diet consists chiefly of chocolates
and kisses: she also devours romantic novels greedily. Her
favorite expression is, "Oh, how
lovely." She weirs her hair
down her back, sometimes in a
pigtail which flaps about���hence
the name. During the war she
could be seen daily in large numbers in the war office and similar
structures where she assisted
overworked officers by making
tea and smoking their cigarettes.
They are affectionate and easily
tamed, and are sometimes kept
in a cage, which should be gilded.
