Considerable difficulty was experienced in getting the injured
man down from the workings to

party to the lower camp. Not
being able to get the office on the

G. D. B. Turner and associates
have recently acquired control of
the Indian Mines, Limited, and
adjacent claims, and will commence active development on or
about March 15.
The deal, which was virtually
closed some weeks ago, was not
given out for publication until
this week, for the reason that
the purchaser did not want any
publicity until control of certain
outlying claims had been
acquired.
The Indian is one of the old
properties in the district, and
consists of four claims, situated
in the Salmon river valley, on
the Canadian side, a short distance northwest of the Premier
mine. Considerable work was
done on the property some years
ago by the Clothier brothers,
who were heavily interested.
Later a company was incorporated, and some 600 or 700 feet of
underground work was done, in
addition to extensive surface
work. Good camps were also
established and everything in
this regard is in readiness and
very little delay will be experienced before real development
will commence.
The work so-far done shows a
good vein from 6 to 14 feet wide
with fair gold and silver values,
and in places considerable galena.
The latter is uniformly low in
silver values.
The terms of the deal are not
exactly known, but it is understood that the old Indian company, whose affairs are in good
shape, are to retain a certain interest in the newly organized
company. G. D. B. Turner and
associates are putting up the
working capital, in return for
which they are given control of
the property.
Mr. Turner is one of the well
known mining engineers of this
continent, and is at present in
New York arranging details
with his principals. It will be
remembered that he visited this
district late last fall, and among
several other properties looked
over the Indian.
Mrs. Hugo Stratford returned
from Vancouver, where she has
placed her two elder daughters
at school. Mrs. Stratford's
brother, F. Lewis, of Vancouver,
returned with her. On Monday,
Mrs. Stratford went up to the
Premier, where she is at present
residing. PORTLAND   CANAL   NEWS,   STEWART,   B.  C,   FRIDAY,   FEBRUARY   24,   1922

FUNERAL   OF   DE   WET
SHORTLY after the world war broke
out Christian De Wet, one of the Boer
chieftains in the South African conflict
two decades ago, involved himself in a revolt against the British crown. The
movement was independent in purpose of
the operations against the South African
union by the Germans of southwest Africa,
but its effect nevertheless assisted the
enemy. It was speedily crushed by the
prompt counter measures initiated by
General Botha and General Smuts, former
companions-in-arms of the irreconcilable
Boer leader against the British.
Recently Christian De Wet was buried
in Bloemfontein with state honors. Premier Smuts was one of the pallbearers.
The governor-general, Prince Arthur of
Connaught, was represented in the procession, while cabinet ministers, judges
and influential people from every part of
the union were in attendance. This remarkable tribute to De Wet was in perfect
accord with the policy of toleration and
conciliation which the British government
under the leadership of Sir Henry Camp-
bell-Bannerman, in 1905, adopted towards
the former Boer repur��!'vb in spite of the
strenuous but shortsighted opposition of
the unionists under Mr. Balfour. The
triumphant vindication of that policy in
the recent great war is known to everyone;
it is enough to observe that Generals Botha
and Smuts were among the most trusted
leaders of this empire's cause throughout
the crisis. De Wet lacked their vision and
appreciation of immense advantages the
new dominion enjoyed as an autonomous
part of the empire. He remained a Boer
of the days of Oom Paul. His former
foes overlooked his defects and thought
only of his virtues���and there were many
of them. It was another notable step in
the reconciliation cf Briton and Boer begun by Sir Campbell-Bannerman seventeen years ago.
GETTING   WISE
office who are "not subject to domination
by invisible governments, or to the control,
dictation and domination of political
bosses." By "invisible governments," it
is not made clear whether the Ku-Klux-
Klan is a case in point or whether it refers
to the mysterious influences that are supposed to reach out from the caverns of
Wall Street and sway the judgment of servants of the people. But the very fact
that a partA* of this kind should be instituted by women at this late age provides
an indication that the feminine hand will
soon begin to fall upon the shoulders of
the politician who forgets his public duty.
BRITISH   SHIPPING
ACCORDING to the latest official
figures of the British board of trade there
is recorded a fifty per cent increase in tonnage of ships cleared with cargoes at British ports in November, 1921, compared
with tonnage cleared in January, 1921.
The detailed returns are: Cargo ships
cleared January, 2,617,226 tons; November, 3,943,-
799 tons. The improvement reflects greatly increased shipments abroad of British coal, which
in the latter part of 1921 comprised about 80 per
cent of the tonnage of British commodity exports.
In January, 1921, coal exports amounted to Only
1,700,106 tons, while in November the tonnage exported was 3,593.864 tons. The speedy reaction
of British shipping trade to interference with coal
production is shown by a decrease in the tonnage
of cargo ships cleared in May to 1,660,372 tons.
The coal dispute was at its crisis in May and only l
14.000 tons of coal were exported during the month.'

activity, the plant reopening after being shut down since December, 1920. The balance of a
crew of seventy men arrived at
the mine last week, lt ii the intention to ship, each month, from
300 to 350 tons of copper concentrates to the smelter at Tacoma.
S. P. Silverman, president and
manager of the Tidewater Copper company, has arrived at Sidney Inlet, from Mew York, and
will superintend the recommencement of operations at the
mine.
While in Victoria Mr. Silverman stated to the Colonist that
the company contemplated increasing the capacity of the flotation mill at the mine this summer and also doing considerable
development work. He pointed
out that the plant shut down near
the close of 1920 owing to the
fa^t that the low price of copper
led the Tacoma smelter to refuse
to take further concentrates.
The market today was stronger,
he said, and American producers
were reopening and expected to
be working at full capacity again
in five or six months. Mining
men, he continued, felt that the

Look at the map of British Columbia
with an unbiased mind, Roughly Vancouver it ��00 miles from the name
point in the Peace Kiver country that
is reached in 400 miles from Stewart,
which is the natural outlet for the
whole northern and eastern interior.
Nearly every settler in the Peace
Hiver district is talking of railway
communication with the coaat.
Speaking in broad terms there are
thirty-two millions of acres of the
l'eace Kiver district situated within the
boundaries of British Columbia, and
more than forty millions of acres with
in the Province of Alberta, most of it
being suitable agricultural laud for
mixed farming or ranching. In addi
lion there is a vast area <>f mineral and
timber resources, the extent of winch is

resumption of the copper producing industry based itself
largely on the status of European credit. If Europe could
make satisfactory credit arrangements, which would make copper buying possible, copper prices
wpuld rise as Europe today was
drained of her supplies of the
metal. The general price level
at the present time was below
actual cost of production and if
the big copper concerns were
going to resume the prices would
have to go up to make it worth
their while.
A general feeling of optimism
prevails in business circles of
New York, said Mr. Silverman,
and there appeared to be a general picking up showing in all
directions.
Touching on production costs
at the Tidewater, the company
president stated that these were
lower than in the case of the
large American producers. Contributing causes for this favorable state of affairs, said he,
were a dry mine, requiring no
pumping, ore that is easily
broken, the use of tunneling,
stoping and open quarrying,
eliminating the sinking of shafts,
a large recovery on mill heads,
and the use of water power.
The property of the Tidewater
Copper company was acquired by
its present owners in July, 1916.
Previous to this several thousand
tons of high gride ore had been
shipped   from   the property by
former owners, the Dewdney estate and the Tyee Smelting company.     The   new    holders    installed considerable new equipment on the property and did development   work  on   it, at the
same   time   shipping to the Tacoma smelter.    The exploration
work demonstrated the fact that
there   was    considerable    high
grade ore, the greatest  production from the mine would come
from  the   bodies  of low grade
ore which were being developed.
The present notation mill has a
capacity   from   oOU to 400 tons.
Since it was closed down considerable exploration and  development work has  been   done,   including  2500   feet  of   diamond
drilling.

Through days of grievous heartache,
In nights of bitter pain,
So many hopes have faded,
So many plans proved vain;
But still the silver lining
Fringes the clouds o'erhead,
An,d newer hopes come thronging
Swift after those that fled.
Always another dawning
Follows the longest night,
Turn then from cheerless brooding
Look for the gleaming light;
Lift up the weak and weary       |
Who falter by the way,
So shall you find new blessings
Attend you every day.
