A deal was finally closed up
during the past week whereby
A. G. Larsen of Spokane has
taken a working bond on thf
Virginia group of five claims,
owned by Mrs. William Bunting,
J. A. Hall, C. Finzel, and J.
Benson, all of Hyder, Alaska;
also the Torris group of two
claims, which ndjoin the Virginia on the southeast side, and
owned by Felix Seppi of Hyder.
The Virginia is one of the exceptionally well situated properties on the Salmon river, Alaska
side of the line, and lies astride
of the wagon road, in the Salmon
river canyon, about 12 miles from
tidewater. Ample water power
can be developed on the property, where there is also an
abundance of timber; as well as
one of the best sites imaginable
for mine buildings.
The work done on the property
by the owners, under the direction of William Bunting who
put through both the deals, has
shown up three strong and well

culture mark the latest budget. The opening speech of the legislature refers to the
provincial maintenance of highways, to
colonization roads, the erection of buildings for new settlers in pioneer districts,
the establishment of industrial and forestry schools, a natural history museum and
increased grants to other schools of the
province. Some of these undertakings are
made possible by the profits from the government sale of liquor, but even without
the extra revenue Quebec was in a good
financial position. The province is well
provided with railways, but has managed
to acquire them without assuming financial
obligations.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
THE editor received recently an
anonymous letter taking exception to a
certain editorial which appeared recently
in these columns. In reply would say that
it is opposed to the policy of this paper to

Russell, but it remains Liberal. Southeast Toronte, which elected a Liberal by a
large majority in the general election, has
now returned a Conservative by a majority
exceeding the combined vote of his three
opponents. This change brings the Conservative strength in the legislature up to
twenty-six, or only two behind the Liberals,
who compose the official opposition party.

CANADA is not without friends and

The prime minister is a native of Canada.

NOTE  AND  COMMENT
A knocker goes through life like a sore dog
followed by flies.
The trouble about the public debt is that the
private individual has to pay it.
You can generally tell what a man is by what
he does when he has nothirig to do.
Admiral Sims of the United States navy was
born at Port Hope, Ontario, and went to the little
log school in that village.
Up to date Germany has been unable to secure
a $25,000,000,000 loan in the United States. Better
try Vancouver bootleggers.
COST   OF   EDUCATION
If the fuel crisis continues across the frog
pond, ex-Kaiser Bill may get more for his woodpilf-
than he did for his memoirs.
Germany is about as resourceful in inventing
reasons for not paying her war debt as a bootlegger in the south is in evading the dry law.

6.G, LEADS THE
NORTHWEST
Dividends of northwest mines,
including British Columbia,
Idaho and Washington, show a
slight falling off for the third
quarter of 1922, as compared
with the second quarter, but a
gain is noted as compared with
the first quarter of the current
year.
Like the second quarter, the
third shows the British Columbia
disbursements in the lead, with
a margin of over $200,000 over
the Coeur d'Alenes. It appears
a certainty that this ratio will
obtain for the balance of this
year. This, of course, is entirely due to the big quarterly
disbursements being made by
Premier at Stewart, and which
give promise of being continued
at about the same level for some
time to come.
the northern country than for
years past. The good work is
having its effect on the mining
industry and the future looks
bright.
It is estimated the mineable
coal reserve of British Columbia
is 76,034,942,000 metric tons.
Why worry!

I have little love for the man who goes
Through life in the rut of a daily grind;
Who follows a pathway left by those
Who carved a way where he trails behind;
The man who dreams of suucess afar.
But fears the odds in the reckless game
Of hitching his hand barrow to a star
And taking a chance on a wider fame.
Take a chance!   Mistress Fonune is fickle,
But a gambler's the man for her eye;
Back the play with your lonliest nickle,
Do yonr darndest���and never say die!
You may lose, but  it's  fun every minute,
If your blood has one drop of romance;
The game's worth just what you put in it;
Make it big���just by taking a chance!
