MINES REPORT
Quotes From Dr. Schofield's
Rt-p.rt - Divides Ores Into ;V?7Z P��WJ ;
**-i---- I tuffs; (c) in certain  beds of the
Three Classifications.
The following report from the
minister of mines is continued
from last week:
S. J. Schofield, of the geological survey of Canada, in his summary report recently issued,
divides the ore deposits of this
section into three main types-
base metal type, silver.gold type
and gold type. The following
excerpts from his report give his
conclusions on each type: "The
usual mode of occurrence of this
type (bass metal type) is that of
replacement and dissemination
in certain beds of tuffs and
tufaceous conglomerates, though
veins occur containing the base
metals. The deposits are roughly
tabular, since they correspond in
siliceous type, with high gold
values (an ore body in the Pre:
mier mine).
"The most favorable associations for the occurrence of ore
are as fellows: (a) In thc quartz
porphyry; (b) at the contact of
the quartz porphyry with the
tuffs; (c) in certain bed
tufaceous conglomerate
"The slates in general do not
appear favorable for the deposition of ore. The sulphides rich
in silver, such as tetrahedrite,
freibergite, argent'te, and some
of the pyrargyrite, are considered to be of primary origin and
will continue in depth. The native silver is considered to be of
secondary origin."
Several examinations were
made during the season and two
or three important deals are
pending which, if successful, will
mean a great deal to the development of the Salmon river section.

OUR   PEACE   RIVER   HERITAGE
IN respect to soil and climate the
Peace River district of British Columbia,
and Alberta, ranks high among the unoccupied regions awaiting settlement in
Western Canada. The chief disadvantage
is the distance from market. A portion
of the Alberta field is served by rail from
Edmonton, and westward settlement may
make it worth while to extend this railway
system into the British Columbia belt. But
even when that is accomplished the haul
will be so long and circuitous as to depreciate the cash value of the produce to the
grower.
The British Columbia Peace River
district has great potential wealth, but
Meanwhile the owners of the present
province of British Columbia have always
in their prosperity and adversity the assuring or consoling thought of their reserve; of that other British Columbia
which will some day by a combination of
science and geography be brought into
its natural relations with coast districts.
SOUTH   AFRICA  EXTENSION
NEGOTIATIONS for the extension of
the union of South Africa to include
Southern Rhodesia have been suspended.
Representatives of Southern Rhodesia have not
seen their way clear to accept the conditions proposed by the Smuts administration. It is likely
that the discussions will be resumed, but there is
little prospect of any early agreement.
This is not surprising. Discussion of the
union of British North America was continued a
good many years before the first conference. It
was three years after the Quebec conference before the union of three provinces was accomplished. Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland were parties to the negotiations, but the
former province did not become a member of confederation until six years after the others, and
nine years after the Quebec conference. New-
foundlanp has not yet joined the confeperation'.
The commonwealth of Australia was pro
claimed 1901. Western Australia did not join until some time afterward. Negotiations for the
Australian union went on for some twenty years
before the Commonwealth was proclaimed. A
large number of conferences and conventions
took place.
No doubt Southern Rhodesia will become a
member of the Union, and Northern Rhodesia will
follow   in   due   time.    Addition of the  two will
this region might be in Alberta for all the
benefit it brings to the rest of this pro-1 nearly double the area of the union and give it addi
vince   under   present   conditions.      It is tional importance, more authority and responsibility'
commercially tributary to Alberta.    Even
when settled it would not contribute much
to the provincial revenues, though the
province would be more or less responsible
for roads and other public works. A large
part of the land belongs to the Dominion,
though we would expect it to be returned
to the province if the crown lands of Alberta and Saskatchewan are restored.
The social and financial relations of the
settlers would all be connected with the
people who are on their route of travel.
With the Pacific a few hundred miles away
the people would be trained to look toward
the Atlantic nearly as many thousand
miles distant.
An end must come to this some day.
When the Peace River country is well
settled the people will refuse to accept the
Atlantic as their maritime base, or the
long land haul as their regular route to
market. This will apply as well to the
Alberta district as to British Columbia.
The trouble is that settlement under adverse conditions will be slow when it should
be rapid.
It may be contended in the light of
events that the Pacific Great Eastern
should have been commenced at the north
first, bridging lhe gap between the Peace
River district and the transcontinental
lines. That would have established both a
irallie and a colonization road. No one
can tell how long it will be before this
natural outlet of the Peace River region is
thrown open. That may depend upon the
resource and ingenuity of government*
and of private interests, lt will be greatly
forwarded by the settlement of the land [

Service For The Thrifty
Thrift is a habit that should be cultivated
not merely to make provision for the future, but because of a desire for advancement and full achievement, and for the
sturdy independence, the happiness and
the contentment that it brings.
The Bank of Montreal co-operates with
the thrifty by means of a Savings Depart*
ment in every one of its Branches throughout Canada. In this Department a Savings Account may be started with any sum
from One Dollar upwards. Interest at
highest current rates is paid on all savings

SOME PEOPLE think it is hard

come here. It's hard to get the
other kind here.   VERY HARD
SACKING   HIGH   GRADE   ORE
High grade ore is still being
mined and sacked at the Eeper-
anza mine. Alice Arm, says the
Herald. About three tons of ore
is now in the railway cars at the
foot of the hill, but no more will
be brought down until the trail
is repaired. Work on the upper
workings has been suspended on
account of the quantity of water
coming in, but work will  be re
sumed as soon as all the snow
melts on the surface. Outside
prospecting is now being carried
on before the heavy vegetation
covers the ground. The Esperanza shipped 90 tons of ore to the
smelter about five weeks ago. It
is a promising looking property
and it is the intention of the
management to ship as much ore
as possible during the summer.

Many of the old trail blazers
in the Boundary country, especially George Fraser of Stewart,
and boys working at the Premier,
will remember Chris Tobiassen,
better known as 'Tobe," of
Grand Forks, who made and lost
several fortunes in the mining
game. Chris is still prospecting
and may visit Stewart this year.
Here is how the "Lucky Swede"
made his first stake:
The Golden Eagle mine, located
**
in a man'�� pocket. Chris To-
biasson, who located this mine,
was walking along a granite
ridge when a quarter dropped
from his pocket and rolled into a
small narrow cracK or fissure in
the rock. In trying to dig it out
with the point of his knife blade,
he noticed that the seam contained some copper sulphide, and
this led him to investigate further. Going to a nearby claim
on which some men were working, he secured a few drills and
twelve miles up the north fork powder  and   put   in a  "shot."
of the Kettle river from Grand The shot exposed an  apex vein
Forks, was found because a two* of high grade ore which made a
bit piece dropped through a hole mine, and a fortune for Chris.

An   interesting report on oil
operatioes in the far north has
been received by Superintendent
Jennings,   R. C. M. P..   Edmon-
' ton, from Staff Sergeant Clay, in
.charge of the Fort  Norman  detachment.    About ten barrels of
oil   per   week was secured from
1 the Imperial oil well and it is the
\ intention of the company to sink
j the hole deeper this summer.
The Imperial Oil Company
have four drills in the Norman
field, one west of Norman, one
at Bear Island, one on the Mackenzie river, and one at the
mouth of Blue Fish creek. Machinery for these four tests are
in place and work will be commenced this summer. Some
fifty men have been employed all
winter.
The Fort Norman Oil Co. put
in machinery seven miles above
the Imperial Oil's No. 5 camp,
and last fall went down 1000
| feet. Indications of oil were
found and work will be resumed
as soon as spring opens up.

Has Valuable Data
Prospectors are reminded by
I the geological survey that they
; can always secure valuable ad-
' vice at the Vancouver office regarding ore  samples,   physical
features of the fields they intend
i investigating and other matters
'on which, they should be in-
' formed.    Maps and reports of all
districts are also to   be  seen at
the offices, and there is generally
the   opportunity    presented    of
meeting .someone there who has
worked on the geological survey
in the field of which enquiry is
made.    In  the  last few   weeks
the survey has received a mass
of correspondence from all points
regarding   the Cariboo district.
McKay's   report on the  field  is
much in demand.    A new report
on the district, by W. A. Johnston,    will   be    issued    shortly.

News, $5 Year
Don't Be a Clam
Napoleon was a good general j
because it never occurred to him
that he could lose. Luther
changed the thought of Europe
and the history of the world because his belief in himself inspired confidence in others. Fulton believed in his steamship in
the face of a jeering population.
History has hundreds of such
cases which prove the essential
value of faith in oneself. British
Columbia contains a number of
failures, simply because a man
has lost faith in himself. You
"down at the heel" shake yourself and jump into the army of
up and try, rather than join the
Rip Van Winkle class. Keep on
going. There may possibly be a
hundred ahead of you, but there
are five hundred behind you.
Unless you believe in yourself,''
knowing yourself better than
anyone else knows you, how can
you expect others to believe
in you ?
Advertising Moonshine
North Carolina has a moonshiner who believes in advertising his wares. Revenue officers
recently came across a bottle
with a unique label, which they
sent to the stnte commissioner.
It reads as follows: "Vure
mountain korn likker. Bottled
in a barn. Made in the back-,
woods of the mountains of western North Carolina by an old-time
blockader, that don't give a durn
for laws and prohibition. Retailed on the Asheville market
by all the high class bootleggers
sor five bones per pint and is
worth every cent of it. Guaranteed to be strong enough to
make you drunk as the devil in
ten minutes, and mean enough to
make a baby bullfrog spit in a
whale's face. Shake well and
get ready to have a fit before
drinking.
Kisses, B'gosh
To one piece of dark veranda
add a little moonlight. Take
two persons. Press in two
strong ones a soft white hand.
Sift slightly two ounces of attractiveness and one of nervousness. Dissolve six giances in a
well of silence. Dust in a quantity of hesitation, one ounce of
willingness snd two of yielding.
To serve: Place kisses on a
flushed cheek or pair of lips.
Flavor with a slight scream and
set aside to cool. Holds good for
all climates, times or places, if
directions are closely followed.
BOOST!    BOOST!
Boost your city, boost your fiiend;
Boost the lodge that you attend.
Boose   the    street   on   which   you're
dwelling;
Boost the goods that you ara selling.
Boost the people round about you;
They can get along without you.
But success will (-nicker find them
If they know that you're behind  them.
Boost for every forward movement,
Boost for every new improvement:
Roost the man for whom you labor,
Boost the stranger and  the neighbor;
Cease to be a chronic knocker,
Cease to be a progress blocker;
If you'd make your city better,
Boost it to the final letter.
With   trembling   hand   and   flutteiing
heart.
