SOME FACTS ABOUT MINING
THERE is food for thoughtful reflection cn the part of a great majority on
this American continent who consider
mining as a skin game and something to'
be abjured strictly when making investments, in a sentence published in last
week's News: "All operators in the Glacier creek section are naturally elated
oyer the results obtained on No. 4 level of
the Dunwell."
There are a million men in business
on this continent who might well ask, in
wondering surprise, could they read this
sentence, "Can this be true, that when a
mining man makes a big success all the
other mining men operating in his vicinity rejoice with him?" And the answer
would be, "Yes, it is true, and that is
what makes the mining business the cleanest business on earth."
If a merchant in any line of business
makes a huge success, do the other merchants of his town rejoice? Hardly. They
know that a part of his increased trade
has been steered away from their doors.
They fight to obtain that trade. They
advertise in all sorts of ways to attract
the public to their places of business.
They try to persuade the public that they,
and they alone, are capable of supplying
the goods and rendering the service that
the public demands. This is the law of
barter and trade.
They produce no new wealth. But
every dollar produced by a mine is a new
dollar, and it is a clean dollar. It has
never before been handled. It knows nothing of a widow's tears nor a miser's
greed; it has never caused a suicide by being the last to leave the pocket of a man
driven to desperation by want; nor has it
suffered the indignity of being one of too
great a hoard accumulated by one person
and used for the purpose of debasing his
own or the public's morals.
The success of a mine brings success
nearer for its neighbors.   There can be
no oaust for jealousy in the mining business. There is no throat-cutting competition.
Mining is not only a clean business,
but it is the bulwark of civilization. Without mines, the farmer would be forced to
use a wooden plow, as is done now by the
most primitive and uncivilized peoples; he
would have no reapers nor binders; he
would not even have a sickle to cut his
grain, but would be forced to bull it and
thresh it with a flail; the leather fastening
the two parts of the flail together would
be removed from the animal whose skin
it originally was, with a flint knife; he
would have no nails to tack the leather
onto the sticks.
There would be no stoves nor frying-
pans; no safety-pins nor locomotives; no
hooks-and-eyes nor electrical equipment;
wampum would take the place of money;
men would have to let their whiskers ramble around over the scenery or, perforce,
pull them out; no wrist watches, and bone
wedding rings���mercy on us!
The general ignorance in regard to mining is
appalling. Newspapermen are supposed to be at
least semi-intelligent, yet we doubt if there is one
member of the regular editorial or reportorial
staffs on any large city daily, even in this, a mining province, who could define the difference between a winze and a whim. This is no idle maundering���the writer speaks with the knowledge of
having worked on a number of these papers.
One of the greatest needs of today is for an
elementary course in mining to be taught in all
public schools on the continent. This subject
shaald at least be given as much prominence in
the school curriculum as botany. Thousands of
the children now in school will make some branch
of mining their life work, and they will have to
learn about it after they leave the public schools.
How many children will make their living at botanizing when they have grown to maturity?
On no subject on earth is the general public
so colossally ignorant.. Informed in some degree
on practically every other subject, they are left
to consider mining as a mysterious romance.
They don't know how the money they spend
is produced.

Stewart Opera House
Dec. II, 12,13.
Reading between the lines of an account of
a conversation between the marine reporter of the
News and Albert Davidson, General Freight
Agent of the Canadian Government Merchant
Marine, published elsewhere in this issue, one can
see that the officials in charge of the coastwise
service touching this port are worried, and that
they realize they made a mistake in not taking
the people of this district into their confidence
as to their reasons for pulling the large boats,
even temporarily, off this run, and in not acquainting them with the fact that the change would be
temporary only. They have lost business, not
only in freight, but in passengers.
Had the C.G.M.M. officials dropped the citizens
of Stewart, as represented by thair Citizens' Association and Board of Trade, a nice little fraternal note, explaining in a kindly way that they had
te put one of the big ships in drydock and could
not handle all of the business with the other one,
and "would Stewart try to get along for a little
while���just a teeney-weeney little while*-with a
slightly impaired service?" this town would have
answered "Betcherlife! Anything to be agreeable."
But in the notification of changiug the service there was no intimation but that it might
be for years, and it might be forever; so everyone
got all fussed up and wasted a lot of good writing
material and stamps. Not wasted, exactly, either,
for they let ihe Transportation Powers know that
this town ie not one to be slighted with impunity.
Things are different now from what thay
were a short time ago, when we could expect
some sort of a craft from the south once a month
whether we needed it or not.
Restaurants may come and restaurants may go,
But we go on forever.
