Big Deal Goes Through
On Gold Cliff Property
7f new discovey on the Bear rivf-r, immediately across the ridge
** from the big Premier mine, and about opposite the Dunwell,
has been bonded by A. B. Trites, of Vancouver.
The property contains a wide fissure vein of high-grade silver-
lead ore assaying $267.40 per ton. that has been traced on the surface over 1200 feet in one direction from the discovery. Indications are that the vein is very wide, and apart from the persistent
clean ore, carries a substantial body of good-grade concentrating Retiring board, and particularly
ore.

held in Moose hall last evening
for the purpose of electing officers, the following were chosen

that in connection with the local

Here, m the heart of the capital of France, the Bank of Montreal in 1919

quarters were opened near by at No. 6 Place Vendome.
BANK OF MONTREAL

Total Assets in excess of $650,000,000
erected reoently and ore uncovered guarantees annual production of 30,000,000

Granby Mine, Observatory Inlet, Copper-silver-gold property. Output since
1914 totals 223,481,461 pounds of copper,
2,610,857 ounces of silver and 51,141 ounces
of gold. Ore in sight will keep mine operating for another 20 years, it is estimated.
Belmont Surf Inlet mine, Princess
Royal Island, Gold-silver-copper. Has
produced since 1916 about 750,000 tons of
ore, containing about 3,500,000 pounds of
copper, 220,000 ounces of gold, and 125,000
ounces of silver.
Nickle Plate mine, Hedley; Has produced gold valued at about $7,750,900 since
1904. Is equipped with stamp mill and
cyanide plant.
British Columbia minas are producing:
Two-thirds of Canada's output of
copper.
Ninety per cent of its production of
zinc.
One-half of its total lead production.
One-fifth of its gold and silver.
About one-third of its total metal output
And one-fifth of its production of coal.
These are a few of the facts behind
the mining industry of this Province: a
few of the facts that indicate the remarkable future ahead of it.
The Sullivan mine at Kimberley, about
14 miles from Cranbrook, has ore iu sight
to keep it going for another 20 years.
J. J. Warren, managing director of the
Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company, owners of the mine, is authority for
that statement.
But the Sullivan is only one of the big
dividend paying mines in British Columbia.
The Premier mine, located in the Portland Canal mining district, is another property that has been paying huge dividends
to its shareholders.   Since
its incorporation in  1919
the Premier Mining Company has overcome   many
obstacles but it  has   also
reaped the rewards of foresight and confidence.
This month it will pay its
quarterly dividend of $400,-
000. It has already returned nearly ninety per cent of
its capital stock in dividends
What is more important
still, ore in sight guarantees payment of at least 32
percent on its capital for
another 15 years.
Britannia mine on Howe
Sound is the largest copper
mine in the British Empire.
Its history reads like a romance but its production
has been as tangible as any
other of the big mining properties. It has paid big dividends, but it has also reinvested huge sums in devtl-
opment of its great railway
and hydro-elettric system.

Captain Sid Harrington,   commander of the Hazel B, who with
his entire eraw  left his   boat
Looks Like   Grady   Found and along with others travelled
FOR
Something, but Nothing
To Warrant a Stampede
At This Time
When asked for  a  statement concerning the placer
excitement i the Dease lake
country Geo. Clothier,  Resident Wining Engineer,   informed the Newi  that  ha
wired H. W. Dodd,   Government  Agent  at   Telegraph
Creek for information  concerning the strike,   and  received the reply   that  some
gold had been found   on  a
small creek, but so far not in
sufficient quantity  to cause
any rush or excitement.   In
expressing an opinion of the
district Mr  Clothier  added
that the placer grounds   of
the Dease lake  country  offer very great promise,   and
will   some  day  produce  a
great deal of gold.
William Grady who, withH.L.
Ford, discovered gold on a   tributary of Eagle river, in the Cassiar district,  British   Columbia,
and which is causing something
of a stampede into that  section,
says concerning the strike:
"There is coarse .gold there,
and undoubtedly in considerable
quantities. In all my mining
experience I have never seen
anything like it. I had no chance
to determine the extent of our
strike. I had nine dogs with me
which I had to feed with food
obtained with my rifle. I had to
do my own cooking, and besides,
I did not have proper tools. All
I did was to scratch a little along
the rim. It is from eight to ten
feet to bedrock. The ground can
be easily worked with pick and
shovel, and drainage is easy.
The place is only sixteen miles
from a government trail and can
be reached without difficulty.
I know we have discovered something big���I wish I knew how
big. I also wish the discovery
had been made earlier in the set-
son. However, I hope to be able
to give out some news within a
short time, that will be more definite and satisfactory."
The foregoing statement appeared in the Wrangell Sentinel
of September II, the day that
the Stikene river boat Hazel B.
No. 4 arrived from Telegraph
Creek, bringing Mr Grady out to
Wrangell to lay in an outfit of
supplies, tools etc., and who,
later advices say. is now enroute
to the scene of the discovery.
When Grady stepped ashore at
Wrangell, the Sentinel article
says, he was surrounded by a
crowd eager to hear his story.
He exhibited a poke containing several ounces of coarse
gold, and told the people who
had gathered to greet him that
the discovery was made on Little
Eagle creek, at a place about
12 miles east of Deaae lake.
Gold was found on a section of
the creek where it cuts through
a red porphyry dyke. The banka
a hundred miles or more to stake
claims reached Wrangell pretty
well tired out but extremely enthusiastic. He told the Sentinel
that in his opinion the importance
of the new discovery is not ever-
estimated.
Under date of September 12,
Captain Barrington, of the Bar-
rington Transportation Company, who had just reached Wrangell after his return from a hasty
trip to Eagle creek, where he
located a claim, wired his business associate, Captain F. G.
Sterling, of Seattle, as follows:
"Arrived back from creek. It
looks very good. Jerry Galvin
and crew of six men are going
in. Also about eight men more
of the local talent from here."
Mr Galvin is a wellknown former Nome mining man, who is
now concerned in a lode property near Wrangell.
On September 16 a press  report from Wrangell stated that
Hugh R. Chilberg of  Ketchikan f
is heading a party composed  of
L. Gernantes, W. J. Harbke and
Angus Morrison, en route to the
new strike.   This party is  well
equipped to remain  throughout
the   winter  if  necessary.    Mr
Chilberg is a son of J. E. Chilberg, |
the former Seattle banker  and
mining man. who is now operating the Saltchuck mine near Ketchikan.    The party was   organised at Saltchuck.
The Hazel B. departed from
Wrangell on a return trip to Telegraph Creek September 15. On
board were some 20 men en route
to the new diggings.

producing on a larger scale than
ever. Its production will now
amount to at least 30,000,000
pounds of copper annually.
The Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power Company's mine at Anyox, Observatory Inlet, is another of the huge
mining properties of British Columbia. Producing chiefly copper, it has also silver and gold.
For years it has been one of the
big dividend-paying, producing
mines, and deposits in sight insure its continuance on the same i
basis for many years to come.
Gold values are the chief ehar-
acteristic of the profit-paying
Belmont-Surf Inlet mine, owned
by the company of the same
name.   It has plenty of ore  in
Local Stocks
In the midst of a continued
dull market, local stocks have
remained, to an extent, inactive
during the week.
There has, however, been a
certain amount of trading in
Dunwell, Glacier Creek and Porter Idaho, and it is anticipated
that as soon as the fall slackness
that commenced with what appears to have been a determined
bear movement is over, these
three stocks will prove strong
favorites.

perties of this Province for many
years.
The Nickel Plate mine at Hedley is another profitable venture.
It has rewarded its backers and
with its present very modern
stamp mill and cyanide plant
promises to be a big producer
for some time to come.
But these are only a few of
the mines in British Columbia
producing on a paying basis.
There are others, maybe not
large, but returning dividends
in proportion to their invested
capital.
They are all proof of the fact
that the day of hit-or-miss flotation of mining companies has
passed: that British Columbia is
Canada's great mineral-producing Province, and that it will
assume greater importance in
that connection still, as the huge
mineral wealth known to exist
in nearly every section of British
Columbia comes under development.���Exchange.
