working bond on the Stoner
group, which, owing to a change
in plan, was recently released by
the Federal Mining and Milling
company.
This property, consisting of 20
claims and fractions, is owned
by H. B. Stoner, J. V. Clegg and
|P. J. O'Rourke, and is situated
at an elevation of from about
1000 to 4000 feet, on the east side
of the Salmon river, Alaska, and
immediately south of the international boundary, about 12
miles from tidewater. It is
bounded on the west by the Virginia, now under bond to A. G.
Larson, and on the south by the
Daly Alaska and Alaska Premier
properties. On the north side,
just across the border, is the International group, also owned by
Trites, Wood and Wilson. This
gives these gentlemen a very
large piece of territory, containing a number of promising showings, within a mile of the Premier mine, in which they are
also heavily interested.
lhe deal, which was consummated in Vancouver last week,
calls for a substantial cash payment, that has already been
made. The actual price aet on
the property, while known to be
considerable, can not be deti-
nately ascertained. The essential feature of the agreement
calls for continuous development
work to commence in the spring.

FRUGAL   ADDRESS
THE king and Bonar Law hare furnished a parsimonious model for speeches
from the throne. In opening the first session of the presnt parliament the king
read an address of 280 words. Deliberately read, this speech would take two
minutes of time. At Ottawa and Victoria
it is thought necessary to prepare an address of ten or twelve hundred words without conveying any more information than
than that delivered at Westminster.
Ireland, the state of trade and industry, Austria, the Near East, and Lausanne
are all in the speech from the throne.
There is no mention of the cattle embargo,
from which it is inferred that the matter
will be postponed until next year.
industrial loans have met very hospital receptions in American money markets, with
the resultant flow of large sums across the
border.
'. "Large amounts of money have been
spent in Canada by boot-legging outlaws.
A substantial boost to Canadian prosperity
came from these two sources.
"American motor car tourists have
contributed to it importantly. In the last
twelve months 600,000 American motor
cars crossed the border into Canada. On
the basis of an assumed seven-day trip and
the expenditure of $25 a day for each car
it is computed by Canadian statisticians
that the total of American money thus left
with our neighbor reached upward of
$100,000,000. This is not a staggering
amount, to be sure in these billion-dollar
days, but it is a tidy sum.
"Canada may well be exultant over
the recovery of her currency."
ENCOURAGE  THE   PROSPECTOR
UNKNOWN   PREMIER
WE cannot afford to lose the prospector, says the Engineering and Mining
Journal Press. Even if his numbers are
fewer, he should all the more be encouraged. His services cannot be duplicated.
Neither the engineer nor the geologist can
undertake to do his work or fill his place,
or stop the gap he would leave were he not active.
Assuredly, there is hope for his searching. There
are many nooks in mountain and desert yet to be
thoroughly examined, and even, especially in the
North and South of the continent, lands unexplored or only half explored, While his major activities will expand in ever-increasing circles
away from the old seats of intensive mining the
day of the prospector has not passed as yet.
German money is at par in British Columbia.
That is, it is worth the paper it is printed on.
NOTE   AND   COMMENT
ALTHOUGH Premier Bonar Law has

be  comparatively   unknown   personally.

THE New York Herald, commenting
on the fact that "the Canadian dollar is
taller now by a fraction of a cent's width
than the dollai of Uncle Sam" declares it
is natural that Canada should be proud of
thia fact is it is only a short time since
Canadian currency was at a discount of 16
or 17 per cent in United States money.
"The change registers a story of prosperity and sound business conditions of
whieh any country would have a right to
be proud," continues the Herald. "Several
things have combined to bring about this
happy state of affairs.
"In the first place Canada haa turned
an adverse balance on international trade

Lode Gold, $105,557,977; Silver. $55,259,485; Lead. $48.330675;

409,505; Building Stone, Brick, Cement, $34,072,016; Miscellaneous
Minerals, $1,210,639; making its Mineral Production to the end of
1921 show
AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $734,259,619
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in ttiis 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
five years, 1901-1905. $96,507,968; for five years. 1906-1910, $125,-

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; JoO.oiTo
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open fur prospecting.
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.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

It is better to live that a few-

The Natural Wealth of Canada
Minerals
CANADA'S coal deposits are estimated to contain 17 per cent of the world's reserves and 71
per cent of the reserves of the British Empire.
Canada has one of the greatest zinc mines in the
world, the greatest deposits of nickel and asbestos,
and gold, silver, copper, oil, and many other minerals in abundance. In its basic mineral wealth
Canada has the essentials for great and prosperous
industries.
