Mineral Showing in the
District ��� Are Planning
Heavy Operations.
Latest word from the Dunwell
mine, received Wednesday evening, was to the effect that the
hanging wall of the vein in No.
2 vein had apparently beer, encountered after 70 feet of vein
matter had been passed through,
including a numberof ore shoots
uf good milling grade, while the
last twelve feet of the tunnel
have been in solid galena and iron
pyrites. Allowing for the fact
that tha vein waa encountered at
a slight angle, this body of solid
ore will be about ten feet in
width.
Locally, the greatest interest
is being taken in the development of thia property, partly because it lies practically at Stewart's back door, and partly because of the fact that its success
will attract to other properties
of the Bear river section the
capital that has been denied them
in the past, and to which the
vastness and assay value of their
surface showings entitles them.
Particular interest also attaches
to the Dunwell because of its
being a local company, practical! of the funds being subscribed
in Victoria. A pleasing feature
is that financially the company
has ample backing to carry out
their development and equipment
programs in every detail.
Tlie company have taken over
the compressor plant of the old
Portland Canal company and
li ive overhauled and put the
c inipraatoe in shape.   The flume
pany in their present undertaking, and will predominate their
future plans insofar bb it is compatible with the accomplishment
of maximum results. The management are announcing no plans
beyond the development of their
ore bodies at a depth which will
give them tonnage to warrant
the construction of a reduction
plant, which they figure will take
anywhere from six months to one
year. Meanwhile they will have
14 or 15 men steadily employed,

Magazine Explodes.
Early this week the mining
and smelting town of Anyox experienced the most disastrous
fire of its history, damage to the
extent of $200,000 being done to
the town and surface equipment.
The fire originated in the timber
surrounding the town, and required the utmost efforts of every
available man to check it. A
church and three residences ware
burned as well as a large portion
of the trestle work between the
mine and smelter, and one of the
powder magazines, with seven
carloads of dynamite, exploded.
The women and children of the
town were taken by ships to
points of safety down the canal,
and a pleasing feature about the
catastrophe is that it resulted in
no loss of life or serious bodily
injury.

BUNK-HOUSE   GOSSIP
A NEWSPAPER may boom a town
through its editorial and new columns,
but a critical investor takes his cue from
the advertising columns for substantial
evidence as to the thrift and prosperity of
the place. To him the advertising is the
barometer that measures the prosperity of
a town. The ads reflect a prosperons condition and tell him that the place is up
with the times in business.

THE wink of the eye, the whisper
back of the palm of the hand, the furtive
shrug of the shoulders, the uprolled eyes
are signs ofthe professional gossip. These
are the tricks of the trade, and all are designed to carry the inference that the
bearer has tapped hidden but reliable information which, as a special favor to the
recipient, is passed on for his private
benefit. Bunk-house gossip is the source
of messy news about the mining industry,
and individual mines in particular. Certain types of men snoop around the bunk
house and gather it and spread it along in
devious ways. Bunk house gossip is as
old as mining. Sometimes there is a trace
of truth in it; more often it is a libel
against the mine or the men who are back
of the mine. It is frequently used in stock-
market manipulation as the source of tips
which have for their purpose the undermining of confidence in a project or cloaking of a dubious project with the earmarks
of merit.
Bunk house gossip does harm to the
mining industry. It would harm any industry or any individual who is a party to
it or who may be the victim of it. The
corrective for it is the opening up of
the avenues to truthful information.
By a liberal policy mining companies
can render it innocuous. Reports
should be given to the public at
frequent intervals, and these should be
accurate and candid. Annual reports that
merely contain a statement of assets and
liabilities are insufficient. Monthly and
quarterly reports should be at least made
available for publication. Companies
privately owned and operated suffer from
bunk house gosaip, as well as those whose
locks are bought and sold in the stock
markets. They should not put obstacle*
in the path uf those who seek to make
public the details of mining operations.
Their contention is that such matter is
their own private information. Some of ,
it Is, no doubt, but they frequently overlook the fact tfcat the wining eommunity
which grow* up about their mine is vitally
interested in its development.. It may be
proper to withhold certain information for
private advantage, but there i�� much
other information that could and should
lind expression in the publicity channels.
Withholding it merely means that it will
get out in garbled faahiiii md usually i��>
SOME people get tired of this life and
just fall asleep, while others hurry the end
along with the use of pistol, knife or a bit
of poison. But it's a good old world after
all, and it uses the most of us as we use it
���in short, this life is just what we make
it. Most people are satisfied with a fighting * chance, while others are satisfied
with a chance of fighting.

evry bit of unnecessary effort. Thinking is a mental effort. Patrons of the
dining car service will now find themselves saved that trouble, by a casual
glance at the little dodger that is distributed throughout the coaches on all
trains to Which dining or cafe cars are
attached. Upon the dodger, which is
printed in both English and French, are
several suggestions for a suitable combination of dishes for the coming meal.
Prices for a complete menu for breakfast, dinner and supper range from 35
cents to $1.25. The traveler merely
needs to decide what he wishes to pay.
and upon entering thedining ear he will
find himself served as quietly and satisfactorily as he would in aiy well appointed home.
