the total dividends for the year

smelter at Tacoma, the medium

through the company's concentrating plant situated on the

During the year the entire
plant has been running with a
maximum of smoothness. The
tram has given the utmost satisfaction, necessitating a continual
run of ore carriers to keep the
bunkers at the'Stewart dock clear

My heart beats loud and fast;

And now at last before I die
I have my prayer���a royal straight.

The Homestake Mining company intend to do considerable
work on their property at the
Kitsault glacier this year. The
No. 1 tunnel, which was commenced in 1921, and which had
just encountered ore when operations ceased, will be continued
until the ore body is cut through.
Work will then be commenced on
the No. 2 tunnel, and this tunnel
will be driven as far as possible.
It is anticipated that about 300
feet of tunnel work will be done
this year, and it is possible that
the work will be done by contract.

president Madden states that he
is prepared to pay what he regards as just debts against the
property and expects these bo be
about $3,000 or $7,000. It is the
intention to resume operations
at the property in the course of
a few months.
Reopen Cinnabar
Reopening of the old workings
of the Cinnebar mine in the Copper creek district, about 30 miles

of Kentucky capitalists, who are
negotiating with the present
owners of the property for control of the mine.

Revive  Florence
Concluding one of the biggest
mining deals that has been put
through since pre-war years, the
shareholders of the rich Florence
mine, near Ainsworth, finally
ratified the sale of this property
to an American syndicate. This
syndicate, which is composed of
rich Detroit bankers and manufacturers, is paying $1,250,000
for the mine and have agreed to
spend $625,000 in development
work. Of this sum, $450,000 is
to be spent on the mine itself in
additional equipment, extension
of work and staff to handle
largely increased production,
while $175,000 is allocated for the
acquirement of electric power,
which will mean the construction
of a new hydro-electric plant at
some suitable point in the
vicinity of the mine.

might have got away with their plunder.

more than 100 per cent has made them objects of wrath and contempt in their own
