Daly Bonds
New Alaska
During the early part of this
week the New Alaska was bonded
to Pat Daly. It is supposed that
he is acting for the company
which ho promoted in New York
during the past summer, and
known as the Portland Canal
Mines, but at the time of going
to press nothing definite on this
point could be ascertained.
The New Alaska is owned by
Dan Davis, Charles Knipple and
W. McGrew. Being situated on
the Salmon river wagon road at
11-Mile, it is ideally located from
an operating point of view. In
addition to this good winter
camps being already constructed,
nothing of a physical nature will
prevent the bondholders from
putting into effect this winter
the development program that it
is reported it is their intention to
do. The summer development
work of the owners of this property showed up a large lead of
good milling ore, running $85 per
ton in ail values, about $14 of
which is in gold.

CANADA'S   OILFIELDS
THE Vancouver Sun's contention that
the best and most practical ronte for
reaching the sea from the Mackenzie river
oilfields would be by way of the White Pass
and Yukon railway, will hardly commend
itself to Canadians. It is the object of the
Dominion government to conserve the oil
products from the new field for the people
of this country and, if possible, not to allow them to pass through a foreign port
before they are available for use within
the Dominion. The suggestion is that the
White Pass and Yukon railway should be
extended to and across the Hootalinqua,
and thence through the mountains to the
Macknzie river. The sea terminal of this
railway is Skagway, an American port, so
that the proposal would be that the anticipated great oil yield from the Mackenzie
river fields should pass through foreign
channels. That is not the best way to
conserve empire products for empire uses,
and it cannot be characterized as a patriotic suggestion where oil is concerned.
Such a condition would at once give the
United States the right to demand facilities for purchasing whatever share of the
product it might deem fit, and, in the
event of war, in which either country
might be involved, complications affecting
the oil fuel situation would be certain to
ensue.
One of the great transportation handicaps of the Yukon is that it has no Canadian outlet to the sea. This handicap
should not be extended to the Mackenzie
river district where an outlet on the Pacific coast is concerned. It is problematiacl
what steps will be taken in the future for
the carriage of the oil products of that
area, provided they are discovered in permanent paying quantities; but we are very
sure any proposal that they should find an
outlet through American territory, and by
way of an American port, will not be received with high favor in any Canadian
quarter. That the suggestion should have
been made indicates how little thought has
been given to the complications that would
ensue and the handicaps that would be
imposed on what it is hoped the future will
prove to be one of the. country's greatest
resources. The oil prospects of the Mackenzie district are of supreme interest and
importance to the whole empire, and in
every way the products should be conserved
for empire uses.

deValera is the same as that of Omar's attention to the Great Argument. Evermore the disputants come out of the same
door through which they went. Now it is
propose that they cease writing public
letters and return to personal conversations without an international audience.
The premier makes it clear that he does
not go into this conference with any intention of authorizing the separation of Ireland from the empire, and the head of Sinn
Fein will doubtless once more affirm that
he does not abandon the doctrine of an independent Irish republic.
It is now to be determined whether
there is a possible chance of agreement
between two parties, one holdirg that Ireland today is a part of the empire, the other insisting that
Ireland is now an independent state. What the
two parties say when they go into conference is of
less moment than what they say when they come
out. The claim of Lloyd George is shadowed by
the fact that a large number, if not a majority, of
people living in Ireland do not acknowledge allegiance to the empire.   That of deValara is impaired
by the circumstances that the majority in  the im-	
portant part of Ireland, including the leading in-! HOTEL PRINCE RUPERT
dustrial and business centre, do not acknowledge
the Irish republic.
The situation calls for a more free and conciliatory discussion and for plainer speech than is
possible in an interchange of carefully guarded
diplomatic despatches, formally addressed to individuals but in effect addressed to the world at
large. It was not by such long distance methods
that the home rule agreement was made between
Gladstone and Parnell. Under the name of negotiation the British premier and the Sinn Fein
leader have been simply continuing the controversy.

Reductions in freight rates and
indications of reductions in treatment and refining charges are
bringing closer the revival of
mining among independent operators in the Slocan and other
Kootenay districts. The Bunker
Hill smelter recently reduced its
treatment charges on British
Columbia lead ores $1 per ton.
With an assurance of a reduction
in the freight rates on ores and
concentrates from Slocan points
to Bradley, Idaho, and with the
reduction already effective on
freight rates between Bradley
and the Atlantic seaboard, it is
estimated that the total charge
against British Columbia lead
ores will be reduced $4.55 per
tou. This, it is hoped, is but the
begging. Those interested are
looking for further developments
not only in respect of the cost
but also in regard to the improvement of market quotations.

Work Commenced on
the Dolly Varden Mine
The  Taylor  Mining company I
has decided to commence opera-
tions at the Dolly Varden mine
and work will commence at once,
says the Alice Arm Herald.
Major C. B. North is in charge
of operations and states that the
present plans of the company are
to employ between 20and 30 men
at the Dolly Varden mine doing
development work and   a   ship-

of about 4000 tons of ore will be
made in November.
About 15 men will be employed
at the Wolt mine early in December. A spare compressor plant
which is now at the Dolly Varden
will be installed and about 500
feet of tunnel will be driven on
the Wolf property the coming
winter, and it is hoped that it will
be possible to continue operations
on both properties indefinitely.

High expectations are retained
by the Guggenheim interests in
the Mayo silver camp in the

The Gaegeheims spent half a
million dollars in development
work last year and will spend an
additional $250,000 this winter.
The mineral area is large and
is receiving the attention of other
mining companies. The London
corporation is planning to expend
$250,000 in development work
this winter. The Guggenheims
shipped between 2000 and 3000
tons of ore this past year. Some

Eureka Mine at Hope
Is Being Developed
The Foley, Welch & Stewart
people have recently acquired
the Eureka silver mine, about
five miles from Hope, and have
opened a new lead, 14 feet wide,
carrying silver bromide assaying
over 600 ounces in silver per ton,
in addition to some gold and copper values.
The Eureka has the distinction
of being the first crown granted
mineral claim in British Columbia. Its number is 1. and it carries title to the lead to all depth
on all its dips, angles and spurs,
so long as it remains within the
boundaries of British Columbia.
Ore producing over $120,000 in
silver was shipped to Swansea,
Wales, by| way of Cape Horn,
from this property in the early
days cf placer mining on the
Fraser river.

weeks ago.    A visitor saw two
figures    in   an oat   field.   One
moved stolidly, motionless.   The
other  moved   here   and   there.
One was the hired man; the other
was  a  scarecrow.   The* reason
the  scarecrow  moved so  much
was that he couldn't still in the
wind.
Figure It Out
I met a young widow with a
grown up stepdaughter and I
married the widow. Then my
father met our stepdaughter and
married her. That made my
wife the mother-in-law of her
father-in-law, and made my stepdaughter my stepmother and my
father became my stepson. Then
my stepmother, the stepde tighter
of my wife, had a son, that boy
was of course my brother because he was my father's son,
but he was also the son of my
wife's stepdaughter and therefore her grandson, which made
me grandfather to my brother.
Then my wife had a son. My
mother-in-law, the stepsister of
my son, is also his grandmother
because he is her stepson's child.
My father is the brother-in-law
of my child, because his stepsister is his wife. I am the brother
of my own son, who is also the
child of my grandmother; I am
my mother's brother-in-law; my
wife is her own child's aunt; my
son is my father's nephew, and I
am my own grandfather.
