MOVED
Suit for an accounting of a quarter interest in the Premier mine
brought against R.K.Neill by M. W.
Bacon was decided in favor of the
defendant at Spokane iu an opinion
filed by Federal Judge Rudkin.
The suit was brought on an alleged partnership agreement and
the quarter interest was estimated
by the plaintiff at $2,500,000 and
by the defendant at $250,000.
Tne opinion was a lengthy one
and featured the statement that in
two cases the plaintiff, Bacon, had
influenced witnesses and had lacked good faith in not bringing the
suit in 1917 when he first knew of
Neill's operations, but waited until
December, 1919 when the mine had

A similar   charge  against   the
plaintiff is made in the opinion in
connedtion with the testimony   of
W.G.Harris, a witness for the plaintiff.   The opinion States that Harris
was paid $1,260   by   the   plaintiff
"between the commencement of the
suit and the time of the trial." This
amount was said to be due the witness from the Hudson Bay company, a cpntroling interest in which is
owned by Bacon, and Bacon testified that he regarded   the   payment
of that sum to Harris as a "moral
obligation."   "There can be no denying that the payment had a corrupting influence" on   the witness,
rules Judge Rudkin in his opinion.
He further says that the testimony
of Harris was "impeached by   contradictory statements" and that "no

W.A. MELOCHE, Applicant,
By Ji hn Hovland, agent
The date of the first publication of
this notice is Feb. 4th 1921.

borated testimony of either party."
Again, the opinion speaks   of  the
lack of evidence presented by   witnesses, saying, "Some of the corroborating witnesses stand sadly   in
need of corroboration  themselves."
The opinion rules that Neill undertook   the  examination  of  the
Bush properties, later to become the
Premier mine, on a joint   account
with Bacon, as evidenced  by   the
fact that he presented and was paid
a bill for his expenses.     "Whether
the join* venture   extended beyond
the Daly and the Bush   property is
not material, but inasmuch as the
defendant rpfused employment as
manager of the Hudson Bay company at $250 a  month,   it   would
appear that they   ceased   at   that
time.
Judge Rudkin ruled that the
$3,000 held by the plaintiff to have
been paid for expenses of Neill, but
said by Neill to be payment for
stock in the Hudson Bay company,
appeared to be, as the defense alleged, since a further payment on
expenses of $250 was given afterward although there was no evidence to show that the $3,000 hud
been expended.

Stewart, A Port
The coming season will likely be a most important
one in the history of Stewart and Portland  Canal dis-
trict generally. The whole of British Columbia is going"
to witness a tremendous development and vast sums  of
money will be spent. The Pacific province has caught
the eye and ear of the financial world and genuine prepositions are being sought. But the proportion of interest attracted to each town and district will   depend on
the enterprise and public spiritedness shown by its citizens.   Stewart's history is sliort as yet. It has had good
years and dull, but the hills give greater promise than
ever before, the great Premier mine has disproven  all
geological theories concerning the formation of the country and its possibilities.   Mining men all over America
are turning there attention to this district and more real
development will be undertaken this year than  at any
time in previous years.   The mines will make Stewart a
good town but it is significant to note the attention that
is being given to its greater possibilities as a port. In its
geographical position Stewart is not surpassed by any
port on the coast. It is the most northern port with a
perfectly safe harbor, and nearest to the ports of Japan
and AsiaticRussia except Prince Rupert. The superstition .
that the northlands of America and Asia are uninhabitable and barren is long out worn. It is not doubted now
each will contribute to the wealth of the nations to an
extent hitherto undreamt of. The trade of the North Pac-
ific will rival that of the North Atlantic before the twentieth century has run h? If its course. Of this trade Stewart must have a large share. Oil,   minerals,    coal and
wheat will find their natural outlet down the Portland
Canal.

The  members  of the B.  C.
branch of the Canadian Institute
of Mining and Metallurgy were'
: treated to a very interesting talk j
on the ore and formation of the |
deposits of the Stewart country!
by Dr Schofield of the University
of B. C. at a luncheon yesterday.!
While a large part of his address
dealt in technical terms with the!
cropping of the ore, the speaker
gave a number of interesting de-!
tails which   he  had   found  out'
during his tour of that country
last summer.
The junction of Portland Canal and Observatory Inlet forms
the eastern mfneral belt of the
coast he stated. The ore ot the
Salmon River country is contained in quartz out of a volcanic formation and the rocks are well exposed, typical of the northern interior country. This summer Dr.
Schofield stated, would see many
propectors going into the country
and prospects for discovering
ore are exceedingly bright.
Taking the Premier Mfne as an
example, the speaker stated that
the ore contained gold and native
silver, the latter running as high
as 1000 ounces to the tori. The native silver he continued, is a secondary mineral, but the higher
values of the ore go down much
deeper and it seems that blocks
in the mine have dropped down
and in some cases been shifted
30 feet from their original positions, The silver is not found in
a continual run, but in intermittent shoots. The primary ore contains from $35 to $100 worth of
silver to the ton.
The speaker was asked a number of questions after his address
and was cordially thanked for
his talk. It is expected that Dr.
Schofield will visit the Portland
Canal district again this summer.���Vancouver World

Stewart,
Look at the map of British Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is 800 miles from the same
point in the Peace River country that
is reached in 400 miles from Stewart,
which is the natural outlet for the
whole northern and eastern interior.
Nearly every settler in the Peace
River district is talking of railway
communication with the coast.
Speaking in broad terms there are
thirty-two millions of acres of the
Peace River district situated within the
boundaries of British Columbia, and
more than forty millions of acres within the Province of Alberta, most of it
being suitable agricultural land for
mixed farming or. ranching. In addition there is a vast area of mineral and
timber resources, the extent of which is
only beginning to be realized.
Immense deposits of anthracite ioal
have been located and the president of
the Peace River Board of Trade is
authority for the statement that this
coal grades higher than Pennsylvania
coal.
Extensive exploration work is ln'ing
carried on in connection with oil and
already startling results have leen   ob
tained. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
and enough investigation has taken
place to be assured that they are of
wonderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural gas.
The araa under cultivation at present
is only about three hundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
district is about twenty thousand. The
first grain was sent out of the country
three years ago, and consisted of less
than one thousand bushels. Last year
nine million bushels were produced from
abeut a quarter million acres, the average wheat yield being thirty-five bushels to the acre or nearly double the
average of other portions of Alberta.
The land is also well adapted for the
raising of stock of all kinds, particularly hogs.
lt is reasonable to suppose that if
two hundred and fifty thousand acres
are now producing nine million bushels
of grain, that vVithin a very few years
there will be ten million aerea producing three hundred and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons.

Lode mining has only b9en in progress for about 10 years, and
not 80 per cent, of the Province has been even prospeoted; 100,000
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 oth-sr Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal feee.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of whieh is guaranteed by Crown Grants.
