The baseball season is here again.
Already Anyox is organizing a team, as
announced by letter from the Community
League of that town, and printed on the
front page. Last year this district had
the best team this side of Prince Rupert,
and there is no reason why as good a team
cannot be organized this year. The star
player of last year's team, Tiny Daly, is,
according to advices, soon returning to this
locality; therefore we are assured of a
pitcher who is in the habit of winning
games. In addition to Daly there are already a number of players here, and it is
to be hoped that they will get together and
organize at the earliest possible moment,
for there is no reason why Portland Canal
should not this year put a team in the|
field that will excel the team of last
year���good as if was.
OUR   MINISTER   OF   MINES
Sid Norman, editor of the Northwest
Mining Truth, published at Spokane, gives
Hon. William Sloan the following "boost"
in the edition of April 19:
"British Columbia's annual contribution to the success of the international
convention series is greater by far than
that of either of the states included in the
scope of the organization. At three
memorable meetings her representation
has been pre-eminently high in numbers
and in class. From coast and inland mining districts the best men engaged in the
industry wend their ways to the annual
event, bent only on contributing their
share to a movementin betterment of their
calling.
As a matter ef fact, the province has
succeeded in crystallizing the mining spirit
to a far greater extent than any of her
neighbors to the south. Perhaps that is
because the industry embraces greater
area than in either of the bordering states
and then, again, it may be because it
boasts a ministerial head ever on the alert
for its best interests and who never tires
of sounding its praises.
In the Honorable William Slcan, British Columbia possesses a Minister of Mines
who looks and acts the part. He may always be depended upon to do his full
share, by speech or by act, and, withal, he
From 1868 to 1888, the United States
took 45 per cent of the exports of Canada,
from 1888 to 1907 38 per cent, and from
1908 to 1918 31 per cent. The tariff policy of the
United States helped the decline in the second
period and the war demand in Europe the third.
The United States market, however, has been
a steadily diminishing market for Canadian products. It is perhaps a natural process between
two countries whose products are similar, but it
has been greatly assisted by a policy of deliberate
exclusion on the part of the United States.
On the other hand, between 1888 and 1907, of
all our imports we took 55 per cent from the
United States. From 1908 to 1919 we took 70 per
cent, and in 1920 we took 80 per cent. We buy in
the United States four-fifths of everything we
buy abroad.
During 1920 our imports from Europe multiplied enormously, but our imports from the United
States showed a very large increase also, mostly
in manufactured goods. During 1920 we bought
more than we sold for the first time since 1915.
For the future it is evident that the policy of
the Republican party is to still further restrict
Canadian exports into the United States. If this
restriction occurs, and Canadian imi.orts from the
United States continue to mount, then .we will be
compelled to borrow to pay for them.
This means that in a very few years Canada
will have incurred a permanent interest paying
debt, making a continuous charge on Canadian
labor and resources, in exchange for commodities
which have entirely perished in the using of them.
It is a funny way of growing rich, and a curious
consequence of national self assertion, and an unlikely method of retaining economic indepenaenci'
and   self-sufficiency.

GERMANY BUYING COPPER
Germany has been a steady buyer of
American copper for some time, according to the   Boston News  Bureau.    It is
estimated by a selling interest that the daily takings of Germany during the last two or three
weeks have ranged between 500,000 and 1,000,000
pounds. The transactions have been for cash,
except in isolated instances where barter has been
the basis of trading.    During January exports of
copper to Germany

GOLD   MINING
In British Columbia and Alaska
Picking Up Again
Gold mining   in  British  Columbia and the   Yukon   is   commencing to pick up again after a
period of dull times, and during
the past three months there were
222 deposits of gold bullion in the
Dominion of Canada assay office.
Vancouver, of an aggregate value
of $394,000.   A year  ago   fromj
January 1 to March 31, the office,
received 208 deposits,  totalling)
$254,234.    With the end of the'
fiscal year on March 31 the receipts indicate a decrease,  both
in  volume  and  value, as com-!
pared with the  preceding  fiscal
year.    For   the   twelve    month
period up to March 31  last 1359
deposits were received, aggrega-''
ting  in   value  $2,639,184.    The!
fiscal year ending March 31,1920,
included 1367 deposits,  aggrega-1
ting in value $3,416,129.

FROM   THE   DUMP
All Free Miners' licenses expire at midnight on May 31.
The lode gold production fell
off 22 per cent last year.
The Providence mine, Greenwood, is being put in shape to resume operations.
Forty per cent less ore was
produced in the Rossland mines
in 1920 than in 1919.
In the world's history, seventeen billion dollars in gold has
been mined, of which five billion
have been lost.
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting company is shipping a
large amount of spelter from the
Trail smelter to Japan.
Japanese    investors    propose
opening   up   the low grade orei
bodies on the Ikeda mine, Moresby island, and installing a mill.
Fairbanks is enjoying the first j
mining excitement in years, with
the discovery of gold on Cosmos-
creek.   The paystreak is 70 feet
wide and pays $5 to the windless
bucket.
Because  of  low metal prices j
and cessation of operations in the
mines   in   the   Cocm   d'Alenes,
mining   area,    tl e   smelter   a! j
Northport, Washington, has been
forced to close down.
Banking Service for All
A S the majority of the first
-*��� directorate of the Bank of
Montreal, formed in 1817, were
Scotchmen or bore Scotch names
it was but natural that they should
seek in Canada "to extend and to
perpetuate for the farmer and the
merchant the benefits and stimulus
of a system the worth of which
Scotland's prosperity could abundantly prove," One of the outstanding features of the system
was the maintenance of numerous
branches by banks of large capital.
The Bank of Montreal, in adopting
this feature from the outset, laid
the foundations of a service by
which branches have been established throughout the entire
Dominion.
At each of these branches the full
service of thc complete organization
is available.
Through this service the Bank of
Montreal offers to all classes of the
community, from the smallest savings depositor to the largest commercial organization, good and adequate banking facilities. Each
customer whether his account be
large or small is welcome as a
client of the institution.   -

Gross income for 1920 of Am-1
erican Smelting and Refining
Co. was $15,747,715, an increase
of $1,051,972 over 1919, according to the latest annual report.
Net income of $674,779 increased
by $1,075,194, and profit and loss
surplus showed a nominal gain
of $12,721.
General Charles S. Warren, a
picturesque character, identified
with the mining west, died at
Butte, on April 25. In the early
days of Rossland he took an ac
live part in thc development of
that camp. He was known to
miners and prospectors as a
"square shooter."
Alexander Sharp, a widely
known provincial mining engi
neer, died at Vancouver on April
19. For many years he was look
ing after the mining interests ol
Pat Burns, the cattle king, and
I McKenzie & Mann. He reported
I on the Groundhog coal ana 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 fee-
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.

IT
ISN'T   YOUR   TOWN
-IT'S   YOU
If you want to live in the kind of a town
Like the kind of a town you like.
You needn't slip your clothes in a grip
And start on a long, long hike.
You'll only find what you  left behind,
For there's nothing that's  really new;
It's a knock at yourself when you leave
your town-
It isn't your town���it's you.
Real towns are not made by men afraid
Lest someone get ahead;
When everyone works and nobody shirks
You can raise a town from the dead.
And if when vou  make your  personal
stake
Your neighbor can make one, too,
Your town will  be  what you want to
see ���
It isn't your town���it's you.
"The Poor Bootlegger"
Alaskans do not believe in
using half measures where bootleggers are concerned. A bill
has just been introduced into
the Alaska legislature by Senator
Frawley, which provides that
hoUses where liquor is sold, or
which are frequented, or offer
shelter to intoxicated persons,
Uhall be declared public nuisances, and may be confiscated and
sold at public auction. This is
declared to be a knockout blow
for bootleggers.
Prices Coming Down
"Kiss Me Again for49 cents."
Music advertisement in eastern
paper. And only a couple of
months ago a Toronto judge assessed the value of a kiss at ten
dollars. Does look as if things
were getting cheaper, doesn't it?
Not by the Senses
An American was with gushing enthusiasm describing his
new car to an English visitor.
"It runs so smoothly," he said,
"you can't feel it. Not a bit of
noise, you can't hear it. Perfect ignition, you can't smell it.
And speed, why it simply
whizzes you can't see it. "My
wordl" exclaimed the astonished
Britisher. "How do you know
the bally thing is there?"
Who says that churchmen lack
humor? Rev. Father Q'Boyle.
in the Monthly Bulletin, says:
"Yesterday 1 signed a receipt for
two tons of coal that came in a
one ton truck."
