The   Rig   Missouri people are

which is in Rood ore, down for
another 25 or 50 feet, in the hope
that this   form   of   prospecting
j will reveal the true nature of the
mineral value on thia section  ot
th-- Missouri areas.   The  same
people  have done  considerable
prospecting on other parts of the
Big Missouri property, also upon
some of the claims of the  Uni-
i corn group, and by this means of
preliminary prospecting, hope to
discover ore bodies that will offer
sufficient encouragement for per-
maneit work.
very promising results on his
Troy group of six claims, situated one mile north of the 49
property, and on the east slope
of the Salmon river glacier. He
has two leads on the property
traceable so far for 500 feet on
the surface, striking in a northerly and southerly direction, and
dipping into the hill. An open
cut, 10 feet deep, made on one of
these shows a 10 foot ledge, with
a two foot high grade shoot, assaying on the surface $127 in all
values, while at the bottom of the
cut values increased to $191, with
a silver content of 207 ounces. A
200 foot tunnel, driven in from
just below the cut. would give a
depth of about 500 feet. Mr.
McDonald is well pleased with
his season's work, and will carry

An interesting deal, made recently, is the bonding of the Silver Bell property, consisting of
eight claims, to E. J. Riebe for
Seattle interests.
The group is situated on the
east side of the Portland canal,
at an elevation of some 3500
feet, above the point where the
Bear river runs into the salt
water; and adjoins the Silverado
mine on the south.
Development work has already
commenced, under the supervision of Mr. Haahti, and will be
continued throughout the winter
if conditions permit. So far only
four men are being employed, as
considerable work in the way of
trails and a camp will have to be
done before actual mining operations can be undertaken.
There are three strong and distinct leads on the property,  one
being   from   35 to 40 feet wide,
and traceable on the surface for
some 500 feet,  showing a large
body of a Rood grade of milling
ore, the values being in gold and
silver.    This   vein   runs   in   an
easterly and  westerly direction.
The second lead runs in a northwesterly and   southeasterly   direction for 2000 feet, and shows
on the surface to contain  three
feet of good ore.   The third lead,
parallel to the second one, is from
three to six   feet   wide,   and   is
traceable   for   some   700    feet.
This, like the other veins,  carries   good   values   in  gold   and
silver.
A promising feature of this
deal is the fact that Mr. Keibe,
a mining engineer of repute,
spent a week on the property
with four men, and a number of
shots were put in on various
parts of the different showings.
On completion of this work he
went south, and nothing further
was heard until this week, when
Mr. Haahti received instructions
to start work.
This property was staked by
the owner last year, and is believed to be a continuation of the
Silverado; work on which was
closed down some time ago.

THE   P. G. E.
is against Greek democracy. All the influence that the British government could
fairly use was on the side of Venizelos,
comrade of Lloyd George in the Paris conference. There was never any doubt in
Greece what side Britain took in the Greek
dispute between the supporters of Venizelos and those of Constantine. But Lloyd
George did not carry his objection to Constantine to the point of compelling the
Greek people to retain a premier whom
they did not want, and to reject a king
who was their choice. If King George or
Lloyd George could have influenced the
choice of Greece, Venizelos would still be
their chief minister and Constantine would
be in exile. But neither the British king
nor British prime minister assumed the
right to elect kings and premiers for
Greece.

NO suggestions have been made to the
Canadian Pacific Railway company relative to the purchase of any part of the
Pacific Great Eastern railway and none
will be entertained if they are made. This
is all that President Beatty had to say upon
the subject when it was referred to him
during the course of an interview recently.
There is nothing particularly new in
the sentiments expressed. The Canadian
Pacific Railway does not intend to play the
role of benefactor to the people of British
Columbia���and only an expert may judge
the valne of the provincial line to the corporation over which Mr. Beatty presides.
Upon the legislature will devolve of
responsibility of settling the fate of the
P. G. E. At its next session it will have
to take off its coat and turn up its sleeves
and tackle the question from a business
standpoint. Political controvery will not
solve the problem.
THE   DISABLED   VETERAN
AT last the Sultan of Turkey has
thought it time to let the world know that
he exists. He has reminded the diplomatists that the capital of Turkey is not
Angora but Constantinople. This will not
interfere with the interview of the French
delegate who carries on the discussion with Kemal
at Smyrna, or wherever the Nationalist leader may
be. But it may be important in the end to have
the signature ot the Sultan and his minister to the
armistice and peace documents. After all it is the
Sultan and not the insurgent chief who is head of
the Mohammedan church, and lord of the faithful
in India and other Moslem countries.

NO government can escape its obligation to the ex-service man who belongs to
what  may   be  termed the   "amputation
battalion."   These veterans' are in a class
by themselves.   They are presumably pensioned according to their disability.   But
that may be barely enough or woefully in-1
adequate to keep them going.   In many
cases they are totally unfit to follow their;
pre-war occupation and in not a few in-j
stances are unable to enter the competitive
labor market at all.   It naturally follows
that they are entitled to and should have
no difficulty in getting special consideration.   They have a right to be put in a position that should assure them of living
conditions at least equal to those they enjoyed before.   Anything short of that is
obviously penalizing patriotism.

HARDEN'S   MISTAKE
MAXIMILIAN HARDEN has made a
discovery. He finds that King George of
England and several other royal persons
were initrumwiU. in restoring Constantine to the throne of Greece. The histori-
cal fact is that Constantine was recalled
to the throne by the vote of the electors of
Greece, contrary to the strong desire of fthe
British peopl* and their king. Maximilian Harden is a democrat and does not
like royalties, but nis quarrel in this case

ONE   OF  THE   BEST
OF   THE   SEASON	
The Consolidated Homestake
Mining and Development Company, Limited, having settled its
litigation in connection with the
Homestake group of claims and
the Tip Top mineral claim, situated at the Kitsault glacier, has
decided to restart work on that
property immediately, says a report issued recently by the company in Vancouver. The completion of the tunneling, started
last year, will be the objective
this winter, should operations be
commenced.
HORSE   SHOE
LOOKING   GOOD
Elmer Ness brought down some
fine samples of ore during the
week from the Horse Shoe group,
situated on McGrath mountain,
says the Alice Arm Herald. The
ore consist6 of grey copper and
is of very high grade, some
pieces being practically pure
copper.
The open cut on the property
has been deepened, and the high
grade ore vein has widened from
16 inches on the surface to
nearly 3 feet, on a depth of 10
feet, which fact looks encourag-
ing'.forthe future of the property.
The development of this property is, however, greatly handicapped by the lack of a suitable
trail. E. Elge, late.manager of
the Esperanza, recently agreed
to develop the property, but owing to the absence of a suitable
trail, abandoned the project. It
is hoped and expected that the
government will build a trail into
this section in the near future so
that development will not be retarded, for this section, unlike
the upper Kitsault, does not depend on the operation of the
Dolly Varden railway for the
transportation of supplies, but is
ready for extensive development
just as soon as trails are built
into the country.

HIGH GRADE FROM
THE   ESPERANZA
High grade oreis coming down
the hill from the Esperanza mine
in a steady stream, says the
Alice Arm Herald, and is being
hauled to the government wharf
via the Dolly Varden railway.
There are 520 sacks to be hauled
down. It is being brought down
to allow more room at the mine
for sacking and piling ore.

1921 show
AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $734,259,619
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive flve-ysar periods: For all years to 1895
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for
five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years, 1906-1910, $125,

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $336,562,897
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 oth��r 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.

The Natural Wealth of Canada
Fisheries
ON both sea coasts of Canada, fishing assumes
the proportions of a major industry. Canada's
deep-sea fisheries are famous. The great extent of
the Dominion's lake and river systems also provides
inland fisheries that are uncommonly extensive and
productive. In this direction, as in others, the
natural wealth of Canada provides a rich basis for
profitable industry.
