AN APPRECIATION
GRANBY AND GEORGE COPPER
THE item which appears in the news
columns of this issue to the effect that the
Granby Co. have released their option bond
on the George Copper property, will no
doubt come as a great surprise to the local mining fraternity, particularly as
Granby have had the property for the past
two summers, with plenty of opportunity
for examination and exploration, and have
in that time carried out considerable necessary trail and other work; also the fact
that to date the property has, from a min-
eralogical and geological standpoint,
stood up, on every occasion, to whatever
tests it has been subjected to.
Taking everything into consideration,
it is reasonable to presume that the
Granby have not released the property on
grounds of lack of confidence. Every indication points to other causes, particularly its topographical situation, and the
fact that beyond Bitter creek for a distance of ten miles or so, the present wagon road, as such, is useless.
Thus the Granby had every difficulty
possible to contend with in the opening up
of this property, many of which presented
themselves on the so called Bear River
There is little doubt, in fact from the
expressions of opinion heard about town,
there is not the faintest shadow of a doubt
but that not only the International Service Club, individually as well as collectively, but also the community as a whole,
greatly appreciate the generous offer of
Dale L. Pitt, manager of the Premier, to
lend very great assistance indeed toward
the erection ofthe cenotaph, which is being undertaken with^a view of perpetuating the names of those former residents
of this district who made the supreme sacrifice dnring the late world war.
Mr. Pitt's offer is all the more appreciated by reason of the fact that it was
spontaneous and unsolicited���unsolicited
for the reason that it had not occurred to
anyone that so much assistance could or
should be expected (rom any one quarter.
On behalf of the general public, and
particularly the friends of those who, from
this district, gave their lives tor their
country, we offer Mr. Pitt a great expression of appreciation.

HORRIBLE!
Gee Whiz!   According to a Victoria paper;
the Terminus Mines are going to drive a tunnel
horizontally,
An advertisement is headed: "Stomach Troubles Are Due To Acidity." Wouldn't "Stupidity"
be the better word?
Ignorance of the Vancouver Sun concerning
the mining industry of the province is well illustrated by an article in which that paper says the
Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. is located
in RwslanJ. Any ten-yoar-old schoolboy should
know better.

Engineer Mine
Is To Operate
Tho Engineer ��i��o o* Atlin,
according to an interview by a
Victoria paper with Hon. Wm.
Sloan, is to be operated again.
Mr Sloan has recently returned
from the East, where he found
a great deal of interest in B. C.
mines. He says the Engineer,
as one of the richest lode prospects in the West, has now been
leased to an independent -company. It has been idle since the
death of Captain Alexander in
the Princess Sophia disaster in
October, 1918, and much litigation has followed. The disputants, he understands* have come
together now and leased the
property. Operations will start
at an early date, and   he   hopes
this will substantially  increase.    _,,     _ ,   _ 1,.

creek. 14 miles north of Kamloops and extending beyond the
Barriere, for tho purpose of carrying on extensive dredging operations. Tests of the river bottom will be made at an early date
with Keystone drills.
A Kamloops syndicate is also
very active, having staked practically all the bars and islands of
