who gave a most interesting and
instructive address upon the history and work of the lodge.
Dealing first with its foundation in the eastern states in 1888,
with only a handful of members,
Mr.   Blue  in  an able manner,
traced its growth, step by   step,
up to the present day where it
now has a membership of over
720,000 throughout Canada and
the United States.    In dealing
with the financial side, it was
most interesting to his hearers
to learn that permanent, tangible
assets of the  organization   now
total over twenty-five millions of
dollars, and that during the last
fiscal year  something  like   two
million dollars was paid out in
sick benefits.
Possibly more interesting even
this,   was   the  story he told of

Bonanza Mine of North
May Be Soon on Producing Basis ��� Remarkable Gold Showings.
Now that the Priyy Council
has decided upon the title of the
Engineer mine, consisting of 11
claims; situated 25 miles west of
Atlin, it appears from reports
emanating from reliable sources
that this property will soon take
its place among the great bonanza mines of the world. According to these reports the
Timmins brothers, who own the
controlling interest in the Hol-
linger, have taken an option on
the property, and it is expected
will soon pnt it on a producing
basis,
If these plans materialize, it
will be a great step forward in
the development of that great
mineralized section known as the
eastern contact belt, in which
Stewart is so centrally located:
for it is common knowledge that
this belt extends northerly from
a point below Alice Arm, up past
Stewart, to beyond the Engineer.
An immense territory, hardly
as yet scratched,  and one that
promises to be in time one of the
running  and  the   thermometer greatest mineral producing dis-
has not yet registered zero wea

In connection with dock matters
Mr. Workman, who was recently in Victoria, brought back
word that the department of
public works contemplate the
construction next year of a large

tricts in the world. Starting off
as it does at its very inception,
with the Premier, Dolly Varden,
the Granby company's property
at Anyox, and the Engineer, all
four most remarkable mines.
Of the latter, the minister of
mines report, 1918, says in part:
Altogether it is a wonderful showing of gold, and
there is every reason to believe that it can be developed
into one of the greatest gold
producers on the continent.
. . . Development consists of
a number of open cuts, and
in the neighborhood of 1000
feet of underground work:
exposing some 25 veins,
varying in width from a few
inches to 4 feet, the majority showing visible gold.
... All this underground
work has been in ore. A
Ball mill was erected on the
property by the late Captain
Alexander. . . . The record
run of bhis mill was 24 lbs.,
8 ozs. (Troy) of gold from
160 pounds of ore."
The putting of this wonderful
mine on a producing basis will be
of the greatest possible assistance in the development of the
enormous mineral resources of
this territory, as it will attract
the entire mining world more
than ever to the enormous possibilities that are at the moment
lying idie.

COMICAL   RUSSIA
OUR   ESTATE   AT   VIMY
THE Dominion of Canada owns a
good deal of territory on this continent,
but the people will value no part of this
estate more highly nor.cherish any more
tenderly than the 250 acres of land which
they have acquired at Vimy Ridge by gift
of the government of France. This small
portion of Europe is familiar by sight to-
many thousands of Canadians, and by
name to all their countrymen. It is one
of the places where Canadian manhood
and heroism were nobly displayed, and
where deeds were wrought which will always be remembered in Canadian history.
Beneath the soil at Vimy lies buried a city
RUSSIA does not seem to be able to
make up her mind what she wants. First
her war minister declares that his armies
are ready to wipe the floor with all capitalistic countries. Next comes the announcement from her premier that the
country after all will have to welcome
foreign capital and treat it kindly as other
governments do. But the latest little diversion to interest Moscow is a disarmament conference. Several of the border
states have sent delegates and the business of the gathering has commenced. To
the last of which the rest of the world will
say "good luck." But what a mixture of
policies are enunciated in Russia during
the course of a few months!

LISTING   CANADIAN
MINING   SHARES
The listing of Canadian mining
shares on the London markets as
a means of promoting the interest of English capital in Canadian mining enterprises, is advocated by the Canadian Mining
Journal. At present African and
Australian mines are advertised
in this manner while only occa-
sionelly Canadian mines are
brought to the attention of the
English investor by a few random quotations.
LONE  MAID   WORKING
Work was recommenced on the
Lone Maid property at Alice Arm,
last week, and it is the intention
of the owners to carry on development work throughout the
winter. The tunnel being driven
on the property is now in 50 feet,
and some good silver ore has
been encountered. This property
has all the earmarks of shortly
developing into a steady shipper.
It is situated in a proven mineral
belt, between the Esperanza and
the Alice, and work on this
property will be watched with
interest.

IS   YOUR   STUFF   REAL?
The test of a man is the fight he makes.
The grit that daliy shows;
The way he stands on hia feet and takes
Fate's numerous bumps and blows,
A coward can smile when there's naught to fear.
When nething hia progress bars;
But it takes a man to stand up and cheer
When some other fellow stars.
It's the bumps you get, and the jolts you get,
And the shocks that your courage standa.
The hours of sorrow end vain regret.
The prize that escapes your hands,
That test your mettle and prove your worth;
It Isn't the blows you beal,
But the blows you take on the good old earth,
That shows if your stuff ia real.
