Prince John Active
With the installation of a
ventilating system at the Prince
John it has become possible for a
second shift to work in the tunnel and extra men were put on
this week. The air pipes were
taken up the hill in the face of
extreme difficulties due to melting snow and breaking up of the
trail. The tunnel is in over 400
feet,   the   face   being a granite
E. G. Riebe, consulting engineer for the Silver Bell mining
company, who made an examination of the property last week
in company with the manager,
John Haahti, told the News that
the company intend to go after
the ore in earnest this season in
the hope of being able to make
shipments of high-grade by the
time next winter sets in.
Work for the present at least
will be concentrated on the Silver Bell group,   which  adjoins
the Silverado on the  south  and
has excellent surface  showings.
Three  parallel   leads,    strik-ng
north and south, have been traced for a distance of approximately 1000 feet  and   three  tunnels
will b�� simultaneously driven on
these.    Assays up to $127,   with
$24 in gold have been obtained.
In addition to these leads a
large body of milling ore, 18 feet
in width, has been defined by
open cuts, and Mr. Riebs is of
the opinion that this will eventually be the big money maker
of the property. On account of
its accessibility, being on a steep
mountain side only a short distance from deep water, the difficulties connected with transporting and treating the ore can be
reduced to a minimum.

lots, to be held in Stewart on Monday
next, will afford everyone in the district
an opportunity of obtaining a home or
building site, at a very reasonable price.
Coming as it does, at the very dawn
of a big development period, such a sale
should give considerable impetus to the
growth of the town, and an effectual fillip to business. In fact nothing at the
present stage could do the town more good
than thia putting on the market the some
775 lots, about 35 of which are in Hyder,
B. C; for it will cause a large increase in
the town population, and encourage still
greater building activity, and thus place
the town on a much firmer foundation.
THOSE CALAMITY HOWLERS
OF LATE we have heard a good deal
from the world's calamity howlers concerning the short life of the Premier mine.
Anything and everything that would tend
to shatter the reputation of this great
gold-silver producer and make it appear
as a much advertised bubble that would
soon burst, has been spoken or written.
Without mentioning any names, we may
say that these companionable gentlemen
seem to have kidded themselves to a point
where they can hardly wait to shout from
the housetops "We told you so!" Some of
their knocking has been prompted by prejudice, some by jealousy and some, apparently, with an ulterior motive.
Disappointments are never nice things
to bear, and therefore these gentlemen
will have our sincere sympathy when they
learn the news, published in this issue, to
the effect that the long, deep tunnel from
Thirteen-mile has been started on the Premier, refuting, as it does, in one fell swoop
the scurrilous reports circulated by these
jackdaws, posing aa authorities.
No statement that the Premier, under
tht management of the American Smelting and Refining Company could make,
speaks louder, or more forcibly, of the
faith that the Guggenheims have in this
"Wonder Mine," than haa been done by
the starting of thia long, deep tunnel.
MINERAL PRODUCTION
There is a matter for considerable congratulation in the figures for last year's mineral production in British Columbia. Only three times in
the mining history of the Province has the value
of the output been greater for a similar period.
The actual increase in 1922 over the preceding
year is just over $7,000,000 and the totnl stands
at $35,158,843.
These figures are really considerably more
important and encouraging than the returns for
those years in which direct and indirect war-time
needs influenced production in this part of the
world. Both in 1916 and 1918, when the output
exceeded the $40,000,000 mark, stimulated demand and high prices were responsible for the
big showing. Last year's output, however, is a
ease of wider development under normal conditions. In this fact lies the importance of such a
healthy increase over 1921.
It is worth noting that mining activity so far
this year gives promise of establishing a new record. Information already in the hands of the
Department indicates that the $40,000,000 mark
will be passed fairly easily. This is highly encouraging and should form a topic for discussion
by those people in British Columbia who look idly
on while foreign cspital comes in and earns dividends which they might earn for themselves by
assisting in the development of the mineral resources of Northern British Columbia.
THE BEAUTY OR THE BEAST
RECREATION PARK
RESERVATION by the government
of two blocks of land in Stewart for a recreation park, as announced in the news
oolumns of this issue furnishes a reaaon
for self-congratulation on the part of all
reaidenta of the diatrict, and satisfaction
with the Provincial Department of Lands
and their agent, Mr. J. W. Smith, in that
they have shown recognition of the future
needs of a metropolis in embryo.
The present ball park and football
grounds having been subdivided and sold
years age, is now owned by private interests, and as the town grows will be required for building purposes, leaving the community without a public playground, had
not the citizen* been forehanded and the
Government amenable to reaaon.

New Find At Usk
A. W. Snodgrasa has made a
very valuable discovery of mineral on his Marcena claim adjoining- the Kitselas Mountain Copper Co., property, being the No.
3 vein of that property angling
down the mountain and outcropping on a bluff 400 feet back of
the wagon road. The mineralization is in folded bands of a few
inches to several feet in width,
in a black schist zone 25 feet
wide. The mineral ie bornite and
chalcopyrite disseminated in a
quartz gangue and appears to be
ef good milling grade. It is improving as work progresses.
Copper Market Firm
Latest reports state that the
copper market is firm at 17 cents.
Domestic inquiry is better although buying is moderate. European market is muoh improved
and European consumers have
bought generally throughout the
Continent in moderate volume,
the first real buying of promise
in two weeks. Aside ship prices
j are stiff er, although British dealers ara still unwilling to meet
producers' prices. All producers
in the market are holding firmly
at 17 cents so that no metal can
be obtained under that price.
