IMPROVING ON NATURE
Man is a conceited animal, at least the
white man is. When he is not trying to
paint the lily or perfume the rose, he is
intent on making some other equally futile or foolish attempt to improve upon
Nature. He acts as though nothing existed in a country until he set his foct
upon it.
These thoughts are suggested by reading about a shipment of hay being rushed
from Seattle to feed the deer in Southeastern Alaska, which are reported to be
dying because of def-p snow. Not but that
it is very thoughtful and philanthropic of
the Seattle folks to feed the deer, but one
cannot help thinking that deer have been
roaming these islands and peninsulas for
perhaps a million years before Seattle was
ever thought of, and nobody fed them hay.
Another case in mind is the fish ladder
at the foot of Meziadin Lake- For aeons
of ages, and maybe longer than that, the
salmon have been coming into Meziadin
Lake to spawn, have performed this function and died, strewing the shores with
Stewart is to become a model mining
camp. Residents here have been under
the impression that the town had already
attained this distinction, but it seems
there are eminences that we wot not of.
For instance, there were arch criminals
who would sell a kiddie an apple or chewing gum on Sunday. My, my! And all the
time no one imagined for a minute that
he was doing any harm.
And some folks preferred to buy their
bread fresh on Sunday morning instead of
eating hold-overs from the day before.
'S funny, but some people are peculiar
that way ��� wanting their bread fresh!
They wore strictly out of luck last Sunday.
The Constabulary For^e had evidently
dropped a tip or something about the
Lord's Day Act, and the makers of bread
were not in the selling game that day.
Nor would they descend to boot-legging
the amber-crusted loaf, showing that they
are highly moral and law-abiding citizens.
The gas-boat mariner who landed on
our hospitable shores (?) on Sunday and
tried to buy two dozen eggs was advised
to buy a live hen. There is no law against
giving advice on Sunday; that's how the
ministers get by.
However, no one cares particularly
whether the town is closed up tight on
Sunday or not. The law that makes this
possible is obsolete and so nor.stnskal as
to cause only mild amusement, except to
those who consider it their duty to enforce
it.

CIVILIZATION
ANO MINERALS
A very striking harmony of
facts presented in the article in
a recent issue of this paper, entitled "Some Facts About Mining," and remarks made by some
of the leading speakers at the
annual convention of the Canadian Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy, is Vancouver last
week, is noticeable.
T. A. Rickard, a leading continental authority, says more lead
is required to supply the abnormal demand for this useful metal
and that any financial outlay
made in the exploration of districts where lead is supposed to
abound wiU undoubtedly be well
invested. The danger of a shortage is increasing and the high
prices prevailing will be in evidence for some time. There is
no shortage of zine but the demand has increased.
The copper market, despite a
large preduction, shows a growing demand and the outlook is
fair. The recent advance in the
price points to better times in the
industry, and, by comparison,
copper is still cheap when the
prices of lead and zinc are considered. The belief formerly existed that copper could not be
taken out in great masses with
profit, but in 1882 copper weighing 440 tons was taken out and
the sale of chips whiGh fell away
in the drilling process paid for
the work.
Noel Humphries, mining engineer, s%.id that the Brule cut-off
is decidedly the wrong route
through which to tap the Peace
River district; that the Brule district was swampy and had much
muskeg and, although it would Independence
serve certain coal areas in Al-> Indian
berta, it would not epen up the
eountry.
Professor S. J. Sohofield dealt
with the fissure system of British
Columbia and the development
of the Stewart and other districts.
Professor W. M. Turnbull, of
the University of British Columbia, sounded a distinct note of
optimism, predicting a bright future for the industry. He said
prospecting must be increased in
the northern section and he was
of the opinion that the most effective method of dealing with
the "wildcatter" is to put him up I
against legitimate competition.
He thinks there is plenty ot capital which should be encouraged
by attractive propositions.
Local Stocks
The continued heavy demand
for all Portland Canal stocks has
increased the value of all the local issues. 'The L. & L. Glacier
reached a new high level under
strong buying and the fact that
this prospect his sufficient ore
blocked out to warrant shipping I
at an early date. Dunwell and
Glacier Creek remained -steady
with very few sales. The public
appears to be waiting what action will take place in reference
to the Dunwell sale.
Silvercrest became a favorite
under   big   buying  orders   and
rapidly increased in  price, with!
very few shares offering. i
The management of the Vic-1
toria mines report they are in ai
fair grade of milling ore, with i
expectations of running into the:
high grade at an early date.
This stock is tightly held.
The treasury issue of the Porter Idaho Mining Company is being rapidly taken up and will
soon be entirely sold.
Rufus drew some attention and
the market speedily indicated an
enhanced value, though not much
actual trading took place.
Independence remains steady,
all the cheap stock being quickly
snapped up. An advanced price
is predicted in Independence asj
soon as the next known ledge is
cut. I
B. C. Silver remains in  good!
demand at the advanced price.'
The   secretary's   report  of thei
cutting of the vein in this property proves the claim that the B.
C, Silver will be a big shipper in
the near future.
