determined men���men who would continue
to dig down into their pookets, even in the
face of adverse circumstances, such as the

The faith, courage and persistence of
these men is about to be rewarded. The
Riverside has been transformed from a
mediocre prospect into an assured mine,
and congratulations are due its owners.

STOCK   "INVESTMENTS"
���'SEEK AND YE SHALL FIND"
WHEN the annals of mining in the
Portland Canal District are written, the
history of the Riverside will stand out in
bold red letters.
It will be a story of development without a parallel in the camp. Almost a mile
of underground work has been done without the public being asked to subscribe a
nickle���we were going to say without asking for government assistance, but this
would have been abortive, in view of the
fact that the government road up the Salmon valley runs right past the property,
leaving no transportation problem to be
solved.
But the point to emphasize is this,
that Messrs Strong*, Barber and Black,
and Engineer Jack Littlepage, have gone
about this undertaking in a business-like
way. Littlepage has bored into the mountainside and has run up against some tough
propositions, as the  writer  happens  to
All these platitudes and blue sky laws that
prstend to protect ths "ignorant speculator" are
tommvrot. They are on a par with gratuitous
advice to "secure expert engineering opinion before you put your money into mining stocks." It
is safe to say that 99 per cent of the people who
buy mining stocks cannot afford to pay for expert
opinion. If they hired an engineer to report for
them they would have no money left to buy stocks
with. They would be like the fellow who Bpent
all his money for a purse and then had no usa for
it. Equally futile is the oft-heard advice to consult your banker. The hanker knows no more
about mining than any other layman. Besides,
hs haa his own axe to grind. He makes your
money work for him. He would bs injuring his
own business if he advised investment in anything
that he does not control. The present criminal
laws, if enforced, would give ample protection
against swindlers and stock fakers.

Economy is the cry from Ottawa, but we are
continually   receiving voluminous pamphlets on
such subjects as the proper care of bees, spraying
in season, how to wean a calf, smut on wheat etc,
which are only a few of the documents which
should not be sent to a mining camp.    The infer-1
ence is that our federal officials do not know  that
Portland Canal is a mining and not an agricultural J
district.    We venture to say that half the money '
spent on the government printing office is simply
thrown away.

few years ago when Andy one
day set out to shoot some fresh
meat in the shape of a mountain
goat. He was gone fully a day,
where he had intended to be gone
only a few hours. Then his little
grey partner, after worrying
about him all night, set out on
his trail. He found Andy's hat.
Then he found Andy, unconscious. a,huddled heap of broken

Andy had slipped and fallen off
the trail.
Nesbitt made his way down to

could not lift him, but made him
