Dan and Andy Lindeborg have
been developing their Riverside
group all   summer.   This work
has proved that there is at least
one large shoot  of  high   grade
concentrating  ore  on  the property.    The  lower  tunnel  has
been extended during the summer in order to gain depth on the
shoot developed in No.  1 tunnel
and exposed on the surface by
open cuts.   This tunnel is now
well into the ore at a depth of
about 60 feet.   The ore is galena
and iron pyrites, and much of it
is of shipping grade.    The upper
tunnel was started on the ore and
driven for a distance of 240 feet,
without reaching the end of the
shoot.   An average assay of the
entire body for the first 150 feet
gave values of a little better than
$20 in gold and silver.   Beyond
this 150 foot point numerous assays have been taken,  none of
which fell below   the  average
given above, and some  went  as
high as $200.
The Lindeborgs intend to at
once resume work on the lower
tunnel with a view to extending
it and blocking out the ore in this
shoot.
The Riverside camp is within
a few hundred yards of the Salmon river wagon foad, and only
seven miles from tidewater,
thereby admirably situated from
a transportation standpoint.

CANADA'S   DEVELOPMENT
CO-OPERATION
NOTHING makes for success more
readily than co-operation. This1 fact holds
good both in the small things as well as
the great, and it is immaterial to what
walk of life this is applied. No nation
ever reached its maximum of development
without it. No business ever amounted to
much if the efforts of its various departments were not co-ordinated by co-operation. Every great step of advancement
that civilization has ever made, can be
traced to co-operation. No community
ever advanced as it should unless the people living therein get together and assist
each other, developing thereby a community spirit; and it is difficult to say if
there is a district which needs this' co-ordination of effort more than one dependent upon the mining industry. When a
district has got the undoubted mineral
resources that are at the moment lying
practically dormant, such as is the case
here in the Portland Canal, nothing in the
world will tend toward their development
more readily th<m co-operation among all
the people living therein.
A very fine sample of this spirit was
displayed last week by W. B. George, when
a certain gentleman, representing certain
large mining interests in the south, arrived to look over, among one or two
others, Mr. George's property up the Bear;
and upon his stating the kind of properties
he was interested in, Mr. George immediately took steps to, though at considerable
trouble, have him look over several other
properties in the district, and in no way
attempted to confine the visitor's observations to the two or three properties that
he had come in to see.
This is the spirit of co-operation that
will bring success to the mining industry
of the district more readily than anything
else, and should therefore be emulated by
every resident living in the community.
"THE history of the world shows no
more well balanced development of a great
country than has been true of Canada,"
says the National City Bank, New York,
in a survey of conditions in the Dominion.
"With distances so great that only the
United States, Russia and Brazil can readily be
compared with it, and with natural resources that
require the hardiest kind of pioneers to bring them
to the service of the world, it has steadily forged
ahead in working out its own salvation, until today
it is in a position to solidly withstand the great
strain which the post-war has brought on." The
review calls attention to the fact that Canada has
been compelled in the last three years to face an
unprecedented series of economic and problems
and declares that the paople of the Dominion have
met every one of them in a spirit that has assured
their successful ending. The survey which is
based on reports from the bank's correspondents
throughout the Dominion, declares "it is possible
to review the Canadian situation for the balance of
1921 and tor next year with assurance." The
prediction of coming prosperity for Canada is based
largely on crop conditions, and incidentally the
bank foresees lower living costs for the people of
the Dominion.

MEIGHEN   PROPHESIES
IN replying to an address of welcome
on his return to Canada from England, where he
attended the Imperial conference, Hon. Arthur
Meighen, Premier of the Dominion, said: "We
have our troubles here in Canada���the disturbances of the trade, the restlessness and disorder
that seems epidemic in these times have not left
us unmolested, but we are in a sound position and
a comparatively strong position. Let us take
courage and confidence and let every class be reasonable, and thereiwill soon be wont for all who
are ready to work and ten yeara from now this
country will be the envy of the world."
NOTE  AND  COMMENT
The only hopeless failure is the man who flies
the white flag at his headpiece.
Smoking pipes and cigars among Ontario's
fashionable women is increasing fast. Prohibition
is blamed for it.

IN these post-war days, when it has
beeome almost fashionable among a certain
element of the country to decry the executive ability of returned men in civil life, it
is always refreshing to hear one of them
well spoken of, as has been the case of
Henry Scovil.
Recent arrivals from the Naas, men

The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the 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

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS,-$331,995,328
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 t^is Province are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any oth��r 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.

MAIN    STREET, HYDER
Nearest  Comrades  to the
Men Who Fell    .
When the war began there
were nearly 4,000,000 dogs in
France. By 1920 the number
was smaller *by about 1,200,000.
A great number of the^ogs that
died were killed while carrying
messages at the front, and some
have received the highest distinction for valor which their
country was able to confer.
The history of the war, with
reference to the part that animals played in it, has not been
written, though there are tales
innumerable of the many creatures of every sort that intelligently served man as his helper
in the mournful business of killing his fellow man. The baasts
were not to blame. A dog licked
the wounds of a master fallen,
no matter uniform he wore.
Our own northern dogs were
there; also our own Canadian
horses. But somehow the dogs
that were faithful unto death
touch our imagination most of
all. Of the entire animal creation they were the nearest comrades to the man who fell.    ,
Prohibition on an Island
The government of Prince Edward Island  has peculiar ideas
about prohibition.   After passing
a prohibition law   it  issued  licenses to four persons to import
liquor for the purpose of export
ing it  to  other provinces,   for
which each "licensee paid $5000,
"Is it  right,"  asks  the  Char-
lottetown Examiner,   "that this
prohibition province  should   be
the medium through which in-!
toxicating    liquors   are    legiti-!
mately    or    illegitimately   distributed  throughout the neigl -
I
boring  provinces?   Is   it  quite
consistent with the prohibition
law that this province should,
for the sake of $20,000, metaphorically, put the bottle to its
neighbors' lips?"���Toronto Globe
Slang
We love the slang of lonj? ago
And so, when we would rap a
pest
Who seems to think that we are
slow,
We murmur, "Aw, pull down
your vest."
Whene'er I meet a real fresh guy
Who likes to rub it in,
I like to stop his chatter by
This slangy phrase,  "Wipe off
your chin."
When someone tries to  get  our
goat
We do not   sigh   and   sit  resigned;
We tell him with a sneering note.
"Go  on,   your    necktie's   up
behind."
When we would flabbergast a jay
And put him utterly to rout,
We tell him in our highbrow way,
"Smoke up, your pipe is going
out."
When some poor simp a chestnut
springs���
An anchient and time-honored
wheeze
I answer in a tone that stings,
"Your brains are dusty���take
a sneeze."
When some old rube starts up his
gab,
We're not left in the lurch.
At him, we like to take a stab���
"Aw. come off your perch."
