NORTHJ SOUTH
Syndicate Transformed Into
Company���Will Operate
On Large Scale Begining
Next Spring
Having developed the North
and South Line property to a
point that justifies the installation of machine drills, the management have closed down the
work for the season, with the
intention of resuming next February or March, taking in acom-
pressor over the snow.
Considering the number of
men employed, the length of
time consumed, an extremely
wet season and the fact that the
work was commenced on a raw
prospect, a wonderful record has
been made. About 200 feet of
tunnel and drifts have bien run,
two cabins built, 14x44 and 18x
34 feet in size respectively, as
well as blacksmith shop and powder house, IJ miles of trail, and
enough extra lumber is on the
ground to build a compressor
house and dry house when tKey
are needed in the spriag. Beside this, two acres of land have
been cleared for the camp site.
The tunnel was driven a distance of 126 feet, the last 16 feet
being in ore, without the width
ofthe vein being determined.
Drifts were driven both ways on
the vein, a total distance of 70
feet, and the face of each drift,
5x7 in size, is solid ore.
Gus Seiffert, the manager, and
his partner, Jack Pederson, are
both satisfied that the North and
South is a big mine in the mak-
lng- Both have had many years
��f practical experience in mining
and prospecting, and neither one
'���-of the type who will try to
fool either himself or the public.
Preliminary development has
been financed by the unit system, the syndicate being formed
-* the basis of 300 units of a par
value of $200. The O & H group
adjoining, is held in the same
way, and by practically the same
People, all of the interests being
eld in Vancouver. Considerable
work was done this summer on
theO&H with gratifying re-
JWs. During the winter the
two syndicates will be combined
and incorporated as a United
liability company, stock being

THE END OF A PERFECT DAY"
I'm here yet," notice how good-natured,
all of a sudden, everybody becomes?
Perhaps we have been receiving a deserved chastening during this season.
Perhaps we have been lacking in human
kindliness���in those little exchanges of
courtesy and helpfullnes3 one to another,
that make for a perfect civilization and a
united community.
Perhaps we bave bragged a little too
strenuously about our mining prospects.
Perhaps old Jupiter Pluvius has muttered
to himself, "Those guys are getting too
cockey.   Got to show them."
Perhaps we have depended too much
on the Government to do things that we
could do ourselves if we had a little more
ambition.
Perhaps���the field is unlimited.

REFLECTIONS
AS WE WRITE these lines the scintillating rays of a Sunday Sun���not the
yellow variety��� are blinking and winking
at us through the lace curtains woven by
summer spiders on our western window.
For the first time in lo, these many days,
the wash-tub under the eves of our cabin
has reoeived no quota of rainwater. This,
however, alas, is a glorious climatic condition that may not be hoped to continue.
People have been kicking about the
weather since the end of last November,
nearly a year, but nothing has been done
about it officially. Neither the Citizens'
Association nor the Board of Trade has
passed a resolution condemning the situation and asking for relief.
And now, when a long-extinguished
sun takes a squint at us and says, with
merry eye-messages, "Hello, Old Chap,
Let not Ambition mar our humble joys,
Our humdrum days, and destinies obscure:
Nor Lucre view, with a disdainful poise,
The short and simple flivvers of the poor.

Ambition. What is ambition? Many
of our readers, especially those who are
married, are familiar with the phrase
"Let's get ahead." Ahead cf whom, or
what, may we ask, and why?
Ambition is generally accepted as being a frame of mind that forces its owner,
or victim, into extraordinary efforts to
obtain financial, political or social prestige over the other fellow, which sounds
senseless.
Why not let ambition take the course
of a desire for the plain comforts of life���
a simple home, everything that mental
and physical needs require? No debts
contracted that cannot be cancelled when
promise of payment is made, no obligations
undertaken that cannot be fulfilled.
'The short and simple flivvers
ofthe poor." The Fords. We
are giving away no advertising
when we eulogise these road-
bugs. They are the greatest
boon conferred upon mankind
since the Magna Charta. And
who knows what the Magna
Charta is, anyway? Everyone
knows what a flivver is. Picnics
that used to be talked about and
never taken, little trips hither
and yon, and back again, are
now possible, thanks to these
time-saving and road-consuming
cars. If you come to the end of
the trail, you can cut a pry-pole
and shove the car around, headed the other way, the way home.
Rich people come in and look
us over. They may go away with
a disdainful idea of our pursuits,
and they may go away with a
longing in their innermost hearts
fof the simple pleasures, the
freedom from worry, and the
care-free independence of the
residents here.
We don't care particularly what
these poor-rich think. We will
continue to enjoy our short and
simple flivvers and contemplate
with equinamity our destinies
obscure.

the railway. Ceorge says that
with a long-handled shovel he
can land the ore right on the
cars.
Charlie French, a veteren proi-
pector of Slocan, is in the vicinity of Fiddler creek but is keeping his discovery a secret. However he no doubt has something
good, for his enthusiasm betrays
him.
While the Belmont-Surf Islet
Gold MiningJCo. continues! operations at Surf Inlet on the usual
basis, no new ore has been opened up for several months and it
will only be a matter of time until it will be necessary to elose
up unless new ore is encountered, said Clyde D Heller of Philadelphia, president of of the com *
pany, to the Prince Rupert News
News recently.   Mr Heller con- 	
firms reports already published. | The Naiional Silver Mines,
that the end of the ore at Surf \ Ltd., according to the Alaska
Inlet is in sight. It is possible; Weekly, of Seattle, has bought
however that something might jcontro1 of the Bush Mines, Ltd.,
crop up any day to change  thia I of Stewart, B. C, and it  is  the

situation, Mr Heller pointed out.
The capital investment in establishing the operations of the
company at Surf Inlet was $1,-
200,000, and about $750,000 has
already been paid in dividends.
Even if it were necessary to close
down in a year or so, Mr Heller
is of the opinion that, while little
money would have been made,
the investment would at least
have been repaid. The company
started at Surf Inlet in 1917
when, due t�� the war, machinery
was at a high price. The heavy
duty on machinery from the United States also made the original cost higher. In regard to
actual operation of the mine Mr
Heller says that the ore in the
lower part of the mine has been
disappointing but that, fortunately, in the upper part was
better than anticipated.
DORREEN CAMP
OUTLOOK GOOD
By present indications Dorreen
is about to become a very active
centre, says the Omineca Herald.
Prospectors are now coming in
with glowing reports of the
nearby hills. Mining activities
will no doubt assume great potentialities as the predominating value of the ore is gold, a
much-needed commodity just at
present.
The Dorreen Mines have their
baby tram working successfully,
under the able management of
Capt. J. R. Turner, M. E. Ore
is arriving constantly at the siding for| shipment. The stopes
present a beautiful sight to
those interested in mining. Development has proved an unlimited body of high-grade gold ore.
George Hambly and associates
report a discovery of a free-milling vein, assaying two ounces in
gold.   The location is quite near

Certificate of Improvements.
NOTICE
"Maggie Jiggs Fraction," ',A. M.
Fraction." and "O'Brien Fraction,"
Mineral Claims, situate adjoining the
Indian Mine on Salmon River in the
Portland Canal Mining Division of the
Province of British Columbia.
TAKE NOTICE that the Indian
Mines Corporation Limited, Free Miner's Certificate No. 44191C, intends,
sixty days from the date hereof, to
apply to the Mining Recorder for a
Certificate of Improvements for the
purpose of obtaining a Crown Grant of
each of the above Claims.
And further take notice that action,
under section 85, must be commenced
before the1 issuance of such Certificate
of Improvements.
Dated this 27th day of June,
announced intention of the new
owners to develop the property
and put it on a diyidend paying
basis as seon as practicable. The
Bush Mines, Ltd, owns 24 claims
which is a contiguous group to
the northeast of the Premier
Gold Mining Co.'8 property.
It will be recalled,   says  the
Alaska Weekly,  that O. B. Bush
at one time owned  the  great
Premier mine property and   sold j
it to a  syndicate  composed  of I
Neill, Trites, Wood and Wilson.
The consideration was $125,000.
After selling the Premier  property, Mr  Bush   bought the  24
claims which form the basis  of
the Bush Mines Ltd.. now taken
over by the National Silver Mine,
Limited.
According to J. F. O'Neill.
Dominion Government Geologist,
who examined the Salmon river
district, this property has the
same high grade silver ore and
is in the same formation as the
bonanza ore bodies on Premier.
The National Silver Mines Ltd
will let a contract for extensive
diamond drilling operations, to
prove the property at depth. The
surface showings are very favorable.
A Granby Improvement
The Granby Co. have about
completed the new concentrator
tailings launder, which will direct the flow of tailings into Falls
ereek beside No. 2 power house.
This should prove a very satisfactory means of disposing of the
tails which will be washed down
and away by the force of the
stream, instead of the present
method which has proved costly
and otherwise unsatisfactory.���

The feature of this week's
atock market has been a decided
fl jrry in B. C. Silver, purchases
of this stock having been made
outside on *.a rising quotation.
Rumors are rife of an important
discovery-made by the diamond
drills, but efforts to verify these
have so far been fruitless.
Dunwell and Glacier Creek are
steady; in fact most of the loca*
issues are firm, The fact that
Porter Idaho is being transformed from a syndicate into a limited liability company is having
ja strengthening effect on its
value, and a considerable gain is
expected to the credit of unit
holders.

THE wireless operator is a
familiar and sought for figure on the ocean liners of today. The radio operator aboard
the all-steel Continental Limited,
the transcontinental express of the
Canadian National Railways, is
fast becoming known and daily
he is fulfilling his part of the work
of the regular train crew on that
service. The photograph illustrates the uniforms worn by the
radio operators, similar in many
respects to that of the operator of
the ocean liner, but bearing on the
lapels and cap the monogram of
the Canadian National Railways.
The suit is tailored of fine blue
serge with double breasted coat
with gold buttons and one stripe
of gold braid on the sleeve, indicating the rank. The Canadian
National Railways are the first
company to inaugurate this service
as a regular part of their equipment.
