THAT PLACER STAMPEDE
"Oldtimers" in Vancouver and Victoria are advising against a stampede into
the Dease Lake country this spring. We
do not know whether these "Oldtimers"
exist in the flesh, or only in the fertile imagination of some copy-sl-y reporter. In
either caso their warning will serve only
to stimulate interest in the old placer
camp.
When the hardships are pointed out,
The city youth knows this and says to
himself: "Gee--I'm just as good a man as
he was at my age. The terrors of the
north didn't get him, nnd they can't get
me;" and he is probably right.
In any case, the fellow in ar.y walk of
life who will not take a chance will never
get anywhere.
The writer has hit the trail on foot
many hundreds of miles, both summer and
winter, and prefers the winter. The hard-1
est part about winter travel is making up
your mind to start. After you get into it
there is nothing to it except to keep on
going; no flies, tangle-foot willows, devil-
clubs, muskegs or swollen streams. Of
course, one has to know how to take care
of himself, but that should come natural
to anyone with ordinary intelligence.
The greatest fault of the inexperienced is loading themselves down with nonessentials. It takes very little to get
along with. When they are on the trail
awhile they will throw these things away.
Common ser.se will tell them what to keep.
Of course there will be disappointments; there always are. As always, a
percentage will be physically or mentally
unfit for the life; but on the other hand,
there will be parhaps wealth, and certain-]
ly invaluable experience, for many whoj_��er:
would never break away from the rut they
are in except for some such incentive as
the lure of gold.
So we say: "Hop to it!"
In any event it is an easy country to

Loca| Stocks
All the Portland Canal stocks
showed marked increases, the
most spectacular being B. C. Silver which reached the $1.30
mark, with heavy demand. Dunwell and Glacier remained steady
with a big demand for the latter
with low offerings. This stock
appears to remain around the 30
cent mark, awaiting- reports of
the diamond drills.
Continued strong demand for
the Porter Idaho Mining Com-!
pany'8 first treasury issues
proves the fact that the public
are desirous of getting in on a
shipping property.
The southern markets are beginning to awake to the opportunities of the Portland Canal
District, which is proved by the
fact of the great number of inquiries continually coming in, in
reference to local mining properties.
