J. J. Kahn, president of the
Daly Alaska mines, before leaving for the south picked up a
piece of ore from the dump, and
out of curiosity had it assayed.
To his surprise it ran 811 ounces
in silver to the ton. The button
obtained from this piece of ore
by the assayer was large enough
to make a stick pin, and with this
object in view Mr. Kahn has
taken it to Vancouver.

chosen for these houses is just
below camp four.

Premier Ore Shipments
During two weeks the Premier shipped about 4000 tons
of ore (high and low grade)
and concentrates, to Anyox
and Tacoma. Thus bringing
the total shipments from the
first of the year up to
approximately 38,400 tons.
In addition to this a large
amount of precipitates and
bullion have been shipped.
Two steamers, the Anyox
and Qriffeo, also several
large seows, are kept busy
continually handling this ore.
School Honor Rolls
F. N. Cronholm, a prominent
civil engineer of Los Angeles,
has recently spent several weeks
in the district looking into the
transportation problems of the
upper Salmon river, and particularly that section of the valley
which borders on the glacier.
Primarily his mission was to look
into the feasibility of utilizing
this glacier for the transportation of ores from the Outland
Silver Bar, which property is
situated six and one-half miles
up the glacier on the west side.
In company with E. L. Bertholf, Mr. Cronholm made a
thorough study of the whole
situation, and as a result is convinced that the day is not far
distant when the Salmon glacier
will prove a tremendous asset to
the mining industry of that section, reducing the cost of transportation to a minimum.
After thorough examination
he is convinced that a splendid
road can be constructed down
the center of the glacier by
blasting full the cracks and properly marking it with stakes.
This would afford a permanent
highway that would be very
cheap to construct and easily
maintained; and of such a nature
that enormous loads could be
hauled over it with a minimum
of motive power.
Near the foot of the glacier he
would suggest that the road take
to the side of the mountain,  retaining its   elevation   and   thus
avoiding the lift over the Texas
creek pass.    This  would necessitate about one mile   of   heavy
rock work.    From the summit of
the pass  an   easy  grade can be
obtained down the Saimon river
bridge, a distance of about four
miles.    This latter setion of the
road would not cost much to construct.    Once over   the   Salmon
I river bridge the present  road to
I the  Premier   mine    would    be
utilized.   The  carrying  out  of
'this plan would mean   the   construction  of   tiive   and one-half
miles of new wagon road on the
ground and about  seven on the
ice.    As the international boundary   e.iis   across   just above the
foot of the glacier,   that portion
1 of it that would be on the ground
I would have to be  undertaken by

SAMUEL   GOMPERS
THE old chief easily holds his position
as chairman and leader of the American
Federation of Labor. During more than
forty years of the history of the organization Mr. Gompers has not only been the
head of its administration but the leader
in matters of policy. He can not be called
a perpetual dictator, because every year
the society has the power to elect another
chief in his place. Its system is thoroughly representative. So far as he has
influenced the course of the federation he
has done it by convincing the majority that
he is rigiit. If he had been one of those
presidents who try to find out what will
please the members, and then take that
course, he would not be a leader and would
long since have guessed wrong and disappeared. Mr. Gompers has preferred to
be a real leader, marking out as best he
could the course to be taken and leaving
the organization to determine whether he
and his counsel were acceptable.
He has taken counsel with governments and with the leaders of other organizations. It has always been his view
that the workingmen are citizens, with
their responsibilities to the state, and
that tne state has responsibilities to the
workingmen. While employers, corporations and governments often have occasion to complain of his views, and to recent some of his strong expressions, the
communist wing of the labor organizations
finds him a mare uncompromising enemy.
If Mr. Gompers had been a weaker man he
would have been less, decisive and contemptuous in his denunciation of Bolshevism both inKussia and America. He has
not moderated in the least his hostility to
the  Soviet, and his insistence that th"
THERE is a tendency nowadays to
rely on the law to correct too many social
evils, and to punish evil doers as well.
Too much making men and women moral
by legislation has taken away our personal responsibility for making good as
well as correcting evil. The home is the
gaeatest sphere for good and a vital factor
in social and moral instruction. The tide
of worldly evils cannot be stemmed by a
police force or acts of parliament so easily
as in the home.   .
"MARY,   SWEET MARY"
THE name "Mary" is going out in
Canada, according to the latest statistics,
and only 8 per cent of the girls bear the
name. The girls of today are running to
Glorianas, Gwendolyns, Guineveres, Els-
peths, Odettes, Yvonnes, Peachblossoms,
and such like. But there are still thousands of the best girls in the world bearing the best name in the world, despite
all the falling off.
BE   A   PROGRESSIVE
THE merchant who does not advertise is as far behind the times as the old
time stage coach. He plods along in the same old
way, year after year, while the more progressive
merchant places his wares before the public and
incr?ases his business year by year. Persistent
advertising has made millions for many progressive merchants, who recognized the value of advertising from the first day they sturted business.
LAW   TOO   EXPENSIVE
THE members of the Vancouver Bar
Association heard recently from Joseph Martin.
K. C, who was their guest at a luncheon in the
Hotel Vancouver. Mr. Martin spoke on the question
of tariff of fees and snid that they were far too
heavy, both in the interests of the lawyers and
of the general public.

Diamond Drilling
Forest Fires
by burning the saplings of to-day
About  $30,000  is  to  be  expended on diamond  drilling on
the Nickle Plate'at Hedley, B.C.,
this   year.   Up  to  the present
only one dril* has been at work,
but   last  week  a party of men
were sent up to the Red  Moun
tain   canyon   to lift  two drills
which have been lying idle there.
They will be taken to the Nickel
Plate and put into use  at once.
The company has at present 160
men   on   the   payroll and is expending  monthly    a    total   of
nearly   $50,000.     The 40-stamp
mill is working to  full capacity
and reduces over 200 tons of ore
every 24 hours.

Ore  Sampling
A bibliography of literature on
ore sampling has been issued by
the  United   States  bureau   of
mines.    So  far as is known to
the officials of the bureau there
previously has been no complete
work   on   this  subject,   so the
present one should prove of exceptional     vaiue.    It    contains
; nearly   1100   references,   some
dating back 30 years,  on sampling at   mines,  mills, smelters,
power plants,  pumping stations
and refineries.    For Convenience j
it includes a few  references to
methods for sampling such materials as leather belting in mills,
salt impregnated soils and  mine

The Natural Wealth of Canada
Sources
FARM produce that can be developed in sufficient volume to feed an Empire, vast lumber tracts, minerals
in abundance, deep-sea and inland fisheries, water powers,
rivers, harbours, and transportation facilities���these are the
natural and fundamental sources from which Canada draws
today, and will continue to draw for many centuries, the
wealth that makes for the strength and greatness of a nation.
When this bank was founded over a century ago it had
confidence in the future of Canada. Today, with hundreds
of branches throughout the Dominion and with a complete banking service suited to the needs of every locality,
the Bank of Montreal's confidence in the future of Canada
is deeper and s_ronger than ever.

Quicksilver in 1921
Quicksilver production reports
for 1921, made by the United
Stated geological survey, indicate an output of 6399 flasks, as
compared with 13,392 flasks in
1920, showing that the quicksilver industry sank to the lowest level in its history during the
past years. Expertsuf the survey observe that the cost of
production has not declined as
rapidly as the price, and no large
bodies of ore are now Known
which are comparable to those
which were exploited when the
industry was flourishing.
May Resume Operations
The Canada Cupper corporation may resume operations
next month, according to a report from Princeton. The report lacks confirmation but is
credited in some quarters. It it-
believed that the company has
been waiting for the price of
cupper to attain a certain profitable level ami this level is not
believed to be remote in view ol
the recent steady advance ami
the numerous resumptions bv
copper mining companies. Ihe
quantity ol ore available  is  12,
000.000 tona,

I smoke my grand old pipe by day, I keep it going half the night;
and moralists come up and say, "Such dissipation is a fright; the
young behold you as they pass, and then for briar pipes they yearn,
in which to smoke buds, leaves and grass, or any herbage that will
burn." I've cutout all the ancient sins that blemished once my
wide renown; I have foresworn imported gins, the pallid beer and
porter brown. My conduct is so pure and nice it might become a
king or queen; no longer do I shake the dice, or plap the creeking
slot machine. I've cut out cards and dominoes, and crokinole, and
all such games; I read good books while graudmagoes to play bridge
whist with other dames. I know that wickedness is vain, I know
my old time course was rank; it's long since I've robbed a train, or
pulled a gunplay in a bank. I've cut out all the evil things, except
the pipe that soothes my soul, and now the moralists, by jings.

your town and you
What do you owe your own
town?
There is a fact which is often
overlooked by citizens in general,
namely, that they owe something to the town in which they
live.
The* sidewalks you walk on,
the streets you drive on, your
fire protection; these and many
other things were obtained by
the constructive effort and foresight of others.
__Some of us go on year after
year, partaking of the benefits
which the town affords, but undertaking none of the responsibilities which it imposes. We
are only too free and willing to
comment on and criticize the
actions of others; but when it
comes down to taking a hand,
we are not among the number.
We allow others to be school

A town composed of critics
and drones is bound to be dead,
it cannot be otherwise. Critic,
izing alone never made anything;
finding fault alone never brings
results; it takes a constructive
effort to build anything.
Sacrifice a little of your own

the citizens. It is not actually a
sacrifice but a duty which you
owe the rest of the public and
yourself for the advantages

Your Graveyard
Every man should have a
graveyard of his own. In it he
should bury all of his mean I
thoughts, his hatreds, his ani-
mosities and evil aspirations;
and bury them deep so that there
can be no resurrection. If you
hear a bit of malicious gossip,
bury it deep. If you have been
nursing a feeling of hatred toward somebody for years���then
bury it. And when you have
finally filled vour grave yard
with the worst that was in you���
you will find the world and all
that goes to make it a much better place than ever before.
Common sense is so called  because it isn't.
If you are physically soft you
can't be mentally hard.
