Some eighteen properties in the Bear
river section alone are receiving attention
in excess of the annual assessment work.
Evidence of similar activity in the Marmot, Georgia river and Salmon river sections is equally manifested. While this
number is admittedly large, it will be still
further increased before the end of August, as work on several other undertakings is soon to commence.
Five assured shippers before this year
comes to a close, and dozens of other properties being developed, assures a future,
in a few short years, for the Portland
Canal District as a proucer of metals second to none.

SECOND TO NONE
PROGRESS made by the local mining
industry during the past two years has
been so steady and persistent, and in a
sense gradual, that its strides are not realized until one sits down and totals it up;
then comes the surprise, with the realization that the camp actually has in immediate prospect, five shipping mines. In
rotation of entry on the shipping lists
they are: Premier, Outsider, B. C. Silver,
Porter Idaho and Dunwell; the first four
are now shipping; the last named, while
not ret shipping, soon will be, and should,
during the winter when the wagon road
is completed, be a steady, and for a young
property, heavy shipper.
As mining camps go, the Portland
Canal has established nearly a record. In
five years, five properties have been established as producers.
Aside entirely from this feature of its
development is the fact that today there
is more actual exploration and development of mineral showings than at any
ORE EXHIBITS
Stewart has this year been requested
for no less than three ore exhibits; one
each for the Prince Rupert and Yaneouver
Exhibitions, and one for the Yaneouver
Chamber of Mines.
The collection and organization of an
exhibit sounds very easy but entails a great
deal of work, which those who have done
it realize; yet on the other hand nothing
is accomplished in this life without work.
Displays of ore from this camp, in the
cities mentioned, should be of material,
though perhaps invisible, assistance to the
industry locally. Coming just when wonderful results are being obtained and the
camp is producing its 5th shipper, these
exhibits should tend to put ths district a
little more solidly on the map, and in so
far as they do this, just to such an extent
will money for development purposes be
made more plentiful. This being the case
it is up to everyone to give every possible
assistance, to the end that exhibits will be
sent from here that will do justice to the
district mineral resources.
The metals constitute a crop that is
not spoiled by frost, rain or drouth.

DAVE   JOINVILLE,       -      -      PROPRIETOR
Plea of the Prospector
(With apologies to Old Omar, the Tent Maker���"Rube."
Musning the trail one morning,
Brushing the flies away,
Busting my boots on the rocks and roots,
Cursing the drizzly day,
I smelt the smoke of a campfire
Close by the crooked trail;
And drawing near, in dejection drear
I heard a prospector wail:���
Damn the  damn  trails, and damn them once again.
Damn them some more���and damn them all.   Amen.
Could we but pack the Powers on the trails,
Methinks, perhaps, we'd get some good ones then
Rocks,   mud and roots,   roots and mud and rocks;
Soaked to the skin the poor prospector walks;
While, each on his annihilation bent,
Savage mosquitoes swarm in furious flocks
And as we back-pack all our weary loads,
Passed on the trail by slimey snails and toads,
We wonder why we ever pay our tax
To rulers who refuse to give us roads.
They say that we are handing them hot air
When talking of our prospects up the Bear.
But if they'd only give us road** and trails.
We'd show them that tha richest mines are there.
WE want enjoyment in THIS life; but SOME
Think our mines for posterity to come.
Oh, give us trails, and let us get to work,
Nor try to put the country on the bum.
But it's a cinch they'll never heed our kicks
Classiug us still as simple-minded hicks,
Until we force the scheming sons of sin
To take the road work out of politics.

Considerable activity in local

the week, the flurry of last week
being well maintained, resulting
in new highs being established
by both Dunwell and Glacier
Creek. Heavy loeal buying et
stocks in both these operations
retained a very active market
This has apparently been due to
the exceptional results obtained
in the No. 4 tunnel of the Dunwell and the faet that on good

With the selling of the last
treasury issue of $10 units Porter
Idaho is looming strong this
week, quotations having jumped
from $10 asked last week to $15

the sensational results being obtained on the property, and the
fact that four tons of ore per day
is being brought- down the hill
for shipment. These factors
have produced buyers of these

strong market appears to be developing.
