Following is the  third installment of Clothier's report on the

under   bond   to   the   Algunican
Development Company, Limited,
of Belgium, under the local management of W.   E.   Meloehe.    A
lot of work has been done at the
mine   under   the supervision of
John   Hoveland.    Supplies    amounting   to 100 tons were taken
into the property from the beach,
a distance of about 20 miles, last
spring  over    the    snow,    with
horses equipped with snovvshoes.

Vancouver,   February   28.���
Litigation designed to delve into
the real  history of the famous
Engineer group of mineral claims
in Atlin  district,   was launched
here today   with   the   Engineer
Mining Company and  the Attorney-General for British Columbia
named as plaintiffs.   The claims
in dispute are eleven in number
on the east of Taku Arm of Lake
Tagish,   B.   C.   and   they   are
valued conservatively at $2,500,-
000.   James A. Fraser, administrator of the estate of the late
James    Alexander,    who    was
drowned    when    the   Princess
Sophia   went   down    over  two
years  ago;   Allen  I. Smith and
several other nominal defendants
will have to defend allegations of
fraud   in obtaining  the   crown
grant, to these claims, which now
stand  in   the   name of  the late
Mr. Alexander's estate.
The Engineer Mining Company
is an Alaska corporation registered in this province. The Attorney-General is joined as plaintiff for the purpose of investigating the alleged frauds in obtaining the crown grants.
It is alleged that certain individuals, who subsequently assigned to the Engineer Mining
Company, staked the claims in
question in 1899. and it is further claimed that in 1907 the
late James Alexander staked all
these claims over again and
regisiered in other names. It is
claimed that Alexander had
acted as chairman for the origi-
, nai party in the 1899 survey for

TAXES
A number of people are in receipt of their tax
notices for this year, and no one can blame them for
complaining of the fact that they are excessively high.
On Fifth street real property and school tax amounts
to more than one dollar per foot frontage, and in addition to this the people have to maintain their own sidewalks. For instance, one man's tax on a thirty foot lot
with a building on it amounted to within a few cents of
forty-five dollars, and the same man built his own sidewalk last year at a cost of thirty dollars. The high rate
is, no doubt, due to the fact that the assessment was
made last year when a boom was expected and rentals
were very high. But as these did not maintain, those
taxpayers who appeal against the high rate should, in
all fairness, be given every consideration; not only that
but such consideration would be good business; for there
is such a thing as taxation retarding the progress of a
town, especially a new one.
ORIENTAL QUESTION
The Oriental question has again been brought before the Provincial Legislature, and it is encouraging to
note that the Minister of Agriculture has given out the
statement that for the last year his department has been
working on this problem and now has accurate data on
the areas of agriculture lands owned and leased by them
in this Province.     .
This information will be very interesting aud will
be full of surprises to the average citizen of British
Columbia for it is a well known fact that both the Japs
and the Chinese took every advantage possible of the
war, to io thoroughly establish themselves upon our
farm lands, tint they have now become a menace to the
white agriculturalist and are in absolute control of certain branches of agriculture.
A. D. Patterson, the newly elected member from
the Delta, is quite correct when he says:
" The Orientals have control of the markets in
Vancouver and other cities. Many of, them are cooks,
and if you do not buy your vegetables from the Orientals your cook spoils them in the cooking, and tells
you they are no good. If you let him buy he will buy
good vegetables. With the result that he buys from
his friends, and the white man has not a chance."
There are no greater co-operators than tho Oriental, and this co-operation is rapidly giving him control  of our farm lands, and from this he is entering
other fields, where there is no doubt he will meet, in time, with
the same success. Take, for instance, Ontario. In many of the
smaller towns in the eastern sectioh of the province the Chinese
have, or are running the white men out of the restaurant business.
Take two instances, Brockville and Smith Falls; the best restaurants in these towns are Chinese; and in a large town in Saskatch.
ewan the best hotel in the town is owned by Chinese.
The Oriental invasion of the agricultural field is serious, for the
people who own the land of a country like Canada are the people
who control it.
This is a big and serious question, fraught with international
difficulties, but if Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in 1911. had taken the same
attitude as Anstralia and New Zealand in connection with the
Anglo-Japanese Treaty, British Columbia today would not be con.
fronted with this problem. This treaty is to be revised in 1923, so
now is the time to get busy.

The finger of wealth points to
the hills around Stewart.
Northern    British    Columbia
contains every known mineral.
Prospectors are getting everything in readiness to take to the
hills.
rangement is that Mr. Garde
must continue boring operations.
He also has to pay license fees
by the end of the year, is required to complete payment of 5
per cent of the option price.

Here is Mark Twain's definition of a mine: "Amine is a
hole in the ground and the
owner a liar."
The present tax on mineral is
5 per cent up to $5,000,000. This
will probably be increased to 7
per cent on all over $1,000,000.
The year 1920 was a good one
for the Canadian mining industry; the estimated value of the
mineral production for the year
is $200,000,000, compared with
$176,686,000 in 1919, and $211,-
301,897 in 1918.
Justice Morrison has approved
the granting by the liquidator of
the National Finance, Limited,
if a $500,000 option to A. C.
Garde, mining engineer, tht
lgreement covering production ir.
the Copper river district of Cen
tral British Columbia. It is t
coal area, 20 miles square, in ex
tent. A diamond drill has beer
installed,   one   part   of the ar
A few years ago Phoenix was
the liveliest mining camp in
British Columbia, and had a
population of 3,000. Today not
a property is working and the
town has not enough children to
"operate a school."
���
The Tidewater Copper Company's concentrator plant has
been closed down at Sidney Inlet,
Vancouver Island. A diamond
drill crew has been put to work,
however, for development purposes in the mines. The reopening of the plant at an early date
depends on the copper market.
In the Golden district mining
will take on a new, lease of life
with the opening of spring. The
Bunyan silver-lead property on
Bunyan mouutain will be opened
with a erew of 125 men to start
with. The Briscoe mine in the
Columbia valley will also be
opened early next year by Australian interests.
Sixty-nine per c��nt of the
world's petroleum production in
1918 came from the United
States. The world total was
placed at 544,885,000 barrels, of
which the American output was
377,719,000. Mexico, with 87,-
073,000 barrels, or 16 per cent,
standing next, and only one
other country, Russia, reaching
five per cent. Of the total 98
per cent came from the United
States, Mexico, Russia, Dutch
Bast India, Roumania. Persia

Stewart,
i
Look at the map of British Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver ia 80O miles from the same
point in the Peace River 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 tbe
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 and
timber resources, the extent ujk which is
only beginning to be realized..
Immense deposits of anthracite coal
have been located and the president of
the Peace River Board of Trade ia
authority for the statement that this
coal grades higher than Pennsylvania
coal. **.
Extensive exploration w*>rk.i*HiciiiK
carried on iu connection   with   oil   and
Iready startling results hav. been   o^
tained. Tlie oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
and enough investigation has taken
place to be assured that they are of
wonderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural gas.
The araa unier cultivation at present
is only about three hundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
district is about twenty thousand. The
tirst grain was sent out of the country
three years ago, and consisted of less
than one thousand bushels. Last year
nine million bushels were produced from
about a quarter million acres, the average wheat yield being thirty-five bushels to the acre or nearly double the
average of other portions of Alberta.
Ihe land is also well adapted for the
raising of stock of all kinds, particularly hogs.
lt is reasonable to suppose that if
two hundred and fifty thousand acres
are now producing nine million bushels
of grain, that within a very few years
there will be ten million acre* producing three hundred and lifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons. PORTLAND   CANAL   NEWS,   STEWART, u.u��� March 12, 1921

The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
Is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show tho value
of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,605,967; for

Lode mining has only been In progress for about ��0 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 pros-'
pecting.
The mining laws of this 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.
