YEAR'S DEVELOPMENT AT PREMIER
Hundreds of Thousands in Development���Concentrator
and Cyanide Plants���Longest Tram on Continent
The Premier mine has, during the tram to deliver 240 tons of
the year, made wonderful progress and nemonstrated beyond
a doubt that, if it has not already
done so, it soon will be the leading  gold-silver   producer in the
province.
During the year extensive underground development was carried  on,   ln   addition to active
ore  at the   bunkers   every  24
hours.
The bunker, which is capable
of holding 1500 tons of ore, in addition to 1000 tons of concentrates, comes into the sooth side
of the Stewart dock, and contains
400,000 feet of timber. The
whole system, built by the Rib-

The Fish Creek Mining company have, during the past year,
proved that their holdings which
lie on the high ground between
Skookum and Fish creeks, have
the makings of a mine of no
small proportions.
The original claims in the present group of 19, were staked by
Dan and Andy Lindeborg some
10 or 12 years ago, and acquired
some time later by the Fish
Creek Mining company.
Considerable work was done
from time to time on the original
or lower showings, but continuous and systematic development
was not, commenced until about
the end of June last.
Admirably situated, this property is located at a low elevation
about one mile up Fish creak
from the Salmon river road and
within seven miles of tide water,
with ample water power and timber on the ground.
There are several good showings on the lower claims on which
a lot of work has been done, and
considerable high grade grey
copper ore, with good silver
values has been extracted therefrom, sorted and sacked and is
now awaiting shipment.   A good
neighborhood of $340 per ton.
There being nothing but a very
indifferent pack trail up to the
property from the Salmon river
road, transportation is at the
moment constituting a great difficulty, which will be overcome
when the wagon road, commenced up Fish creek last summer by tht American government, is completed. This will
give free access to the property,
enabling machinery to be installed, and thus ensuring during
1922 the carrying out of a development program that bids fair to
terminate in making this property a large producer.

Card of Thanks
To my Supporters in Skeena Riding
I wish to thank you all most heartily
for your devotad and loyal support in
the late campaipn. Just at the present
moment the result is still in the balance
and uncertain; but whether I'm successful or not I have the same keen
feeling of appreciation for what my
friendB have done for me,
1 think it is not boasting to say few
men have had as manv faithful and unswerving friends and supporters as 1
have had. All I can say is no one appreciates it more than I,
1 mean to remain in the contest till
the last vote is ceunted.
I have had little respite from a strenuous life in the past seven years and 1
am now looking forward to a short
holiday and rest from the busy activities of the campaign.
Again 1 thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

satisfactory results were obtained, and in
many cases the work proved the properties
to be better than the owners had even
hoped for. With the result that with the
turn of the tide which appeared to commence late in the season, mining men, a
number of whom came into the district,
found a number of very good properties to
look at, were most agreeably impressed,
and in every case conceded that this district has a tremendous future from a
mining standpoint, and nearly everyono expressed the expectat!on of returning as soon as
the snow goes i.i 1922, with a view to taking a
hold of something.
While the year 1921, up until after midsummer, was very disappointing, it has on the whole,
with the progress made from then to the end of
the year, proved in every way most satisfactory.
For in spite of the most adverse conditions, two
properties, the Silverado and the Fish Creek,
reached a stage when active mining operations
were  commenced.    Development   work   on   two

of suspicion, envy, and hatred, have hung
like a pall over the peoples of the earth,
creating friction and strife in many
places, with its attendant suffering, unemployment and poverty. But with the
close of 1921, it would appear as if the unstinting efforts of the leaders of the great
nations are about to bear fruit. The debris of the war is being rapidly cleared
away, and the foundation for a greater
and better world is nearing completion,
enabling a start to be made upon the
superstructure of peace, happiness, and
progress to be made in 1922.
sidered in conjunction with the work done by the
Premier, and the results obtained there, justifying
that company in building and operating the longest
aerial tram line on the North American continent,
entitles this district to justly claim to have made
greater progress during 1921 than any mining
district in North America.

Thanking you for past patronage.
We wish you all A Healthy
and Happy New Year
The Federal Mining company
has bonded the Stemwinder property,    near   the   Stemwinder
property, near the famous Sullivan mine, and will immediately
start diamond drilling the hill,
operations on which will be carried  out  all   winter.   It is also
believed that they have acquired
the  North  Star  mine,  latterly
worked  by  Thompson and Mc-
Kinney under lease.   The Stem-
winder,   the   oldest   developed
property in the Kimberley   section,   is  owned by McKenzie &
Mann.   Just what developments
will be undertaken has not been
given out officially, but it is said
the Federal will spend $3,000,000
on the property and in  all  probability construct a railroad to
link up with the Great Northern.

The Cariboo is looking up in
the matter of gold production,
according to John D. Galloway,
provincial government district
mining engineer.
The prospects for that old-
time producing section are excellent for the coming year, he
states, and there is every prospect of a great increase in development.
Recently there was a reported
gold   discovery   near   Quesnel
forks which has greatly stimulated interest in that field.   The
discovery   was   made  at Cedar
creek, one of the old  time locations which  was abandoned in
the early days of the mining excitement in that section.   Some
excellent   showings  have  been
found there, though as yet it is
uncertain as to just what extent
the   ground   will    produce.     A
more hopeful   feeling pervades
the section and there is a decided
increase in prospecting activities-.
Mining in the   Babine  range
section is making some progress,
and   activity   is   shown   in   the
western portion of  his district,
where   the  Silver   Standard   is
located and which is expected to
operate next year.

Look at the map of Hritish Columbia

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
River district is talking of railway
communication with the coast.
Speaking in broad terms there are
thirty-two millions of acres of the
Peace River district situated within the
boundaries of British Columbia, and
more than forty millions of acres within the Province of Alberta, most of it
being suitable agricultural land for
mixed farming or ranching. In addition there is a vast area of mineral und
timber resources, the extent of which ll
only beginning to be realized.

AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF ��706,192,978
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show tne value
of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94.547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any other Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

PSALM   WRILEY'S   RESOLVE
Psalm has resolved, and it is true,
Not to touch booze in twenty-two;
To steer clear of whisky, gin and beer,
Live a model life throughout the year.
To not go near the government store.
Get dope���make you sleep on the floor.
To not take stuff that'll create an inward fire-
Still, like others, you'll find Psalm a liar.
UM!
From whirring jaws her happy

Thrills  all   the air with nearly

Yet not quite dumb,  bewitching

Of aromatic airs that come
From where she sits and chews,
yum, yum
Her dainty wad of sticky guift
As to her rhym I succumb
And wish 1 were of chicklet some
For  then  I'd   sail   like  candy

Down her sweet throat into her
