With the arrival of Christmas comes the close of
another year, and it is interesting at this juncture to
cast one's mind back and note the progress made during
1920, in the development of this northern country, and
this section in particular, though perhaps a lot of over-
optimistic people were disappointed, yet there is every
reason for those who remain to be well satisfied when
everything is taken into consideration, and no doubt
but that the year 1920 will go down in history as the
year when this section established iUe]f, beyond a doubt,
as a district of great mineral wealth.
Though the year was ushered in with a fcoom, which
being a year or so too soon, was unwarranted, and as is
natural with all booms there was an influx of people
greater than the country could at once absorb. Coincident with this came a tightening of the money markets, and later a fall in prices of minerals, with the result that a lot of people found themselves in the position of having to leave, which for the district, was in a
way unfortunate, yet in the long run will prove beneficial, for it forced things down to a real business basis,
and so created a good solid foundation for the prosperity which it is about to experience. In speaking
of this prosperity it is well to consider the mining
developments of the past year.
In the Salmon valley, while there have been disappointments, there has in the majority of cases been a
great deal of success, anp this section is fortunate indeed in having retained the interests of two such outstanding mining organizations as the Guggenl e:ms and
the Algunican Co.
In the Bear River section, of eight properties under
bond in the spring, only two failed to come up to ex
pectations,  and  even these two were not in any way
proven failures; on the remaining six increased development work will be commenced early next season.
Besides these there is theMarmott ard several other
sections which have proven very promising.
Therefore, 1920 proved a very satisfactory year ir.
that it developed two shippers, and gave promise of a
number of others. With a return of an easy money
market, Portland Canal will, without a doubt, become
one of the most progressive and prosperous sections of
British Columbia.

THE GIFT OF
THRIFT
you can give your children,
in a material way, which
will do them more lifelong
good than a savings account
in an insi.tution like the
Bank of Montreal By encouraging them to save, you
teach them the habit of
thrift and provide a foun-
dation for their future.    9
A savings account may be
opened with $1.00. Inter'
est is paid at the highest
current rates.
