ONJTS FEET
Marmot River Property Put
Into Position This Summer to Become Permanent
Shipper High-Grade Ore
Among the properties that
have "got on their feet" this
season is the Fraser group on
Marmot river. Like a number
of other holdings in the district
it has been put in a position to
go ahead in the spring on a commercial basis, with the installation of a few accessories and
some improvements in the way
of transportation facilities. The
property was staked in 1911 by
Wm. Fraser, who from the first
has realized its value, and though
not having the means to open it
up, has hung on with a dogged
perseverence, keeping up the aa-
sesments and holding faith that
lome time the Marmot section
would receive the recognition
that it deserved.
With the Porter Idaho jumping
into the limelight, other properties of that section have been
looked over, and the fact has
dawned upon the mining fraternity that the Marmot mineB must
be reckoned with as a factor in
the district's production.
W.R.Harner who, with Ernie
Brysorr, had a contract for packing out Porter Idaho ore, took a
lease and bond on the Fraser
group August 7. He built the
necessary pack trail and August
14 sent the first pack load of ore
down the hill. Using what horses he could spare from the contract work, he managed to get
out an initial shipment of ten
tons, which is now at the Selby
smelter and which, according to
'ocal assays, should give returns
around $200 per ton. This ore
was taken from the surface, but

The group consists of seven
claims, situated on the mountain

B. C. CHAMBER OF MINES
THE British Columbia Chamber of
Mines is doing something. Under the
able and inspiring guidance of the President, Alderman Frank Woodside, bided by
its energetic secretary, Mr. Henry Browning, it has assumed a position that entitles it to rank with the most influential of
the organizations of similar character
throughout the world.
We have referred on previous occasions to tho activities of the Chamber in
the matter of the collection and publication of data concerning the possibilities
of mining in the Province, and again pay
tribute to the manner in which this particular function is being performed. During the past season, the popularity of the
Chamber was utilized for eduoational purposes and tho system of lectures already
initiated for the public instruction upon
matters of general interest was extended
for tho purpose of educating prospectors
especially in elementary geology and mineralogy. This course of lectures, given by
Professors Uglow and Turnbull of the University of British Columbia, proved so
successful, being attended regularly by a
class of about 90 prospectors and others,
that Mr. * Woodside was encouraged to
launeh out still farther in his ambition to
make of tho Chamber a power of good to
the community. Not content with improving the state of knowledge of the present
generation, ho is now co-operating with
the Board of School Trustees, with the direct  object of including in the general
school curriculum, courses of instruction
upon subjects related to the mineral possibilities of the Province.   The conception
is beyond all praise; British Columbia is a
mineral province, offering life-work to its
sons, yet for lack of having engendered
the home-country instinet, for want of the
early instillation of belief in its possibilities, we find so many of them at a loose
end in their maturity, looking anywhere,
seeking any occupation other than that
which they may make for themselves if
they have the requisite outlook and mental and practical equipment for the work.
A meeting was held on 16th Sept. between the representatives of the Chamber
and the Board of School Trustees, at which
it was arranged that the Board would include the course of lectures to be given
under the auspices of the Chamber in their
regular night school syllabus, and would
give every encouragement to their attendance by young people.   It is hoped that
this step will lead te still closer adoption
by the Board of the principle of technical
training in schools and we extend our cordial appreciation to the British Columbia
Chamber of Mines in this matter.���Canadian Mining Journal.

The community newspaper is the best medium
for local merchants to reach those whom they have
the best chance to sell. The advertising columns
from now on should be bristling with advertisements telling not only what the merchants have
on sale but how much life there is in the community. Already individuals are casting about with
the view to purchasing Christmas gifts.
SO THERE YE ARE
Probably the reason the average man  wants to
fight when he is called a liar is because he is.

a tributary of Gun creek, which
empties into Bridge river above
Lillooet, where he is in charge
of development work on a large
deposit of arsenical ore for A.B.
Trites and associates. Ool Leckie brought samples of the ore
which is extremely valuable for
its high arsenic content, as well
as the gold values it carries. It
is probably the largest known deposit of its kind, and Dr. Hearst
who is making a report for the
Dominion Government on the
arsenic deposits of Canada, was
impressed with the possibilities
disclosed by the work under direction of Col. Leckie.

New Map Issued
A very interesting map of
Southern British Columbia eov-
ering from latitude 51 to the international boundary and including the Dominion Railway Belt
has just been issued by the Natural Resources Intelligence Service of the Department of the
Interior at Ottawa. In the Railway Belt area the disposition of
land is shown; also the timber
berths and grazing leases granted, while forest reserves, national parks and Indian reserves are
indicated clearly.
A further striking feature of
the map is the showing, by means',
of red coloring, of data regarding the natural resources of each
locality, thus affording a bird's-
eye view of the principal industries of each district.
A copy may be obtained free
of charge on application to the
Director. Natural Resources Intelligence Service, Department

Local Stocks
This has been a decided bull
week on stocks. As can be seen
by the quotations below, practically all of the active issues are
considerably stronger. Dunwell
which took its big spurt last
week, is holding about the same,
but Glacier Creek, Terminus and
Independence particularly show
renewed strength. Orders are
in from the south for large blocks
of Terminus, but there is little
of this stock held locally. The
fact that an especially strong directorate has provided for development, not only for the winter
but for an entire year, has made
this company independent, for a
time at least, of public snbscrip-
tions. The strike of high-grade
ore on Glacier Creek accounts
for its popularity, while Independence is firm for the same reasons that affect Terminus. Or-
ders are in from the south for
large blocks of Glacier Creek,
but local investors, who know
the situation, are hanging on
like the proverial "Death to a
dead Nigger."
