According to reports a big lead
of high grade ore has recently
been struck on thi�� property,
and a number of nice specimens
brought into town showing native
silver and argentite. According
to a disinterested party; who
measured the showing, this lead
is fourteen feet wide, and has by
trenching been traced on the
surface for some 200 feet. It is
understood that A. B. Trites,
the bondholder, was on the property at the time of the strike
and is reported to be well satisfied. There are at present a
crew of some 15 men employed
on the property, and it is understood that this number will be

Big Values
Some exceptionally fine ore
was brought down, this week,
from the property of the Fish
Creek Mining company. Thia
ore was taken from the east drift
in the tunnel, which was last
fall driven on the upper lead on
this property. On having the
samples run the following values
were obtained: Gold $28, silver
$493.60, giving a total value of
$521.60 per ton. This property,
being on the Alaskan side of the
line, the price of $1 per ounce
for silver was used in computing
these values. W. R. Tonkin,
president of the company,   left

of the delegation from the Dominion he
will doubtless maintain the reputation of
Canada for moderation and sanity in international councils. Mr. Fielding is not
likely to go out of his way to show the
world that Canada is a nation,'or to withhold his opinion from excessive national
modesty. He is one of the veterans in
Canadian public life, as Mr. Balfour is in
the public life of the empire. But the eyes
of neither have grown dim with gazing on

THE great boast of the Chicago
stockyards is that in dealing with the
humble but necesssary pig they use everything except the squeal, but may even realize on
the pitiful pleadingsof "Horace" as he goes to his
doom by selling the gramaphone rights.
The boast of the Trail smelter is that its talented chemists and metallurgists have managed
to save values from the smoke of the lead* furnaces. Here is the greatest industrial plant of the
Kootenay. Its payroll seldom goes under 1000
men, and has gone as high-as 3700. It covers
acres upon acres of ground on the benches above
the city, h-.s miles of railway track and has won a
reputation in metallurgical centers as a most
efficient plant.
NOTE  AND  COMMENT
FROM Mr. Hearst, no less, comes this
tribute to the English:
The English seem to have forgotten their
war antagonisms more than any other
other country and to have set to work
more seriously to bring about Europe's
reconstruction. With them, apparently,

hardly sound when it contends that On- ried no sting but rather a compliment
tario does not need to sell for profit inas
much as liquor purchased in that province
is for medicinal purposes. The memory ot)
our own government can hardly be so short
on the prices which were charged in this
province when, under the prohibition act,
liquor was sold here on doctors' prescriptions. The prices, then, too, were abnormal. The desire then, too, was to make a
substantial profit, and this profit was
realized. During the first year of the operation of the Liquor Control Act the government cannot deny that this legislation
was interpreted as meaning that the government should make whatever profit it
desired. There was but little public criticism of the prices charged up to quite recently, because the people realized that
the government was engaging in an experiment. Now the Liquor Control Board
can estimate the cost of operation. It
knows the prices that will insure a legitimate profit, and the attorney-general has
said that it is his intention to arrange that
the law is carried out for moral purposes,
not for money making.

Liquor Act by cabinet ministers who entertain varied views.   What they are con- ,.     . .   .  *���.       .     .

ANCIENT HISTORY
In 18C0 gold was discovered in
Nova Scotia.
In 1862 the first discovery of
asbestos was m;de in Quebec,
though the active deve'o -mei t
of the asbestos industry did not
b-kii: till 1878.
In 1915 northern Manitoba be-
��� -*
came the scene of imjo !ant
mineral discoveries, resulting in
the development of the largest
single copper ore shoot in the
British empire.
Ontario was the scene of the
first oil production on the continent in 1857, two years earlier
than the Drake well of Pennsylvania, which is generally
credited with being the pioneer
of he oil industry.
ln 18G6 the Silver Islet mine
of Lake Superior was discovered.
This mine was the basis for the
j for the money making reputation
! attaching  to   early   mining  in
i Canada.   It was sold for $225,-
000,   paid   from   gr iss roots the
purchase  price and cost of de-
; velopment and equipment in the
jfirst year of operation, produced
j silver to the value of $3,089,157.
'and paid dividends of $360,000.
Frue, its metallurgist,  invented
the Fine vanner.   In the same
, year the first gold in Ontario was
reported   from   the   Richardsoi
mine in Hastings county.
Montreal was the first city in
Canada whose business men
realized the value of the mineral
industry in the development of
the counlry. In 1845 parties of
p 'espectors   were   organized   to
,the number of between 80 and 1)0
men. and they were despatched
throughout Quebec and Ontario
to obtain information as to tbe
mineral resources. Their work
resulted in the discovery of tbe
| Wallace mine, a copper-nickel
deposit on lake Huron,   in 184f*>,

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
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 fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

There is lots of gold in the ore
of life if we can learn to extract;
it, and leave the dross behind.
This first involves recognition of |
what is good and what is not
good, both in ourselves and in
others. Some humans assay
better than others. In other
words, human nature is a strange
mixture of good and evil, gold
and dross; in some the good predominates, and in others th--
evil. The environment of a
western mining camp may be
the crucible in which the human
ego is tried, and in which the
gold may be brought out or
otherwise.
A certain amount of money
is a very necessary passport
through our material existence.
Wealth is a passing convenience
and responsibility. But there
are many men of great material
wealth who are poverty stricken
inspirit. Figuratively speaking,
they have not a chair to sit down
on. Money never made a real
man yet, but it has unmade a
good many, ln the final analysis,
a man is no richer than the spirit
he has developed within himself,
lhe real gold is in theore of life.
By the law of reaction in nature,
if we do evil, evil will return to
us. But if we do good, then good
only can come to us.
Oh, You Prune
A Vancouver paper _ays: "A
new prune is being introduced in
the Okanogan country." This
matter interests us. We are
wondering whether this new
prune wiggles and drags his feet
when he dances. The old kind
was rather long on this sort of
thing, and we have always
wished someone would introduce
a new one. The old one also
blows eigarette smoke in your
face while you arc eating, and
then there is the greener sort
that talks aloud at the eiuu.it.
and reads the titles at tin- movie.
We hope tlie new prune can nut
boast of such educational activity and that thc new variety
ca.i give vent to expressions
other than, "I'll tell the world,"
and "believe me, k'd."
The white race will dominate
