IS STILL PREMIER
THERE is an element in the make
up of the human raee that produces admiration for a food fighter, and this John
Oliver has long and often proven himself
to be. A rugged and determined fighter,
with an inborn cleverness, sharpened by
years of experience in the political field,
he has again proven himself the maater in
British Columbia politics. Attacked by
nearly every political faction in the Province, personally defeated at the general
election on June 20th, he bravely stepped
forward to meet the concentrated attack
of his opponents in Nelson on Saturday
last, where a seat had been made for him,
and in the duel which ensued defeated his
adversaries, piling up a majority of 338
out of a total vote polled of 1910, a victory of which he may well be proud.
Whether the policy of his government
has been, or is, aa good as some would
wish it, is immaterial. The fact remains
that the people aa a whole have approved
of it, by a majority vote, and in Nelson
have given Mr. Oliver in person their approval, all of which, to say the least, is a
very great tribute to his ability as a lead-
Seldom has the leadei*of a party been
called upon te put up such at fight as has
Mr. Oliver, both on behalf of his party
and himself as its leader; but being of a
type that improves with opposition, he
met and defeated all comers, which can
not help but produce admiration for his
rugged and determined qualities, on the
part of all fair minded persons, be they
friends or foes, for Mr. Oliver, facing tremendous opposition both within and without, has proven himself the master of the
political situation in British Columbia,
and is still Premier.

A CRISIS IN COPPER
INDICATIONS are that a marked cut is coming in the copper industry; whether it is to be a
cut in prices or in production depends solely upon
the propueers themselves. If the current rate of
production continues for the rest of the year, we
would not be surprised to see prices drop off still
further; if production is decreased, say, 25 per
cent, prices may rise a few cents a pound.
Domestic mine production of copper in 1923,
when general business conditions were considered
excellent and consumption of all raw materials
was much better than it is now or is likely to be
in the coming months, averaged 123,000,000 lb.
monthly. In the first five months of this year the
average was 130,883,000 lb., and for May the production was 131,054,000 lb. Some companies have
curtailed, but any such decrease is more than
made up by other companies that feel that they
must operate at capacity to make costs as low as
possible, and by new producers. Conditions
abroad are the same as in this country, some companies having curtailed and others having increased production.
We see little hope of any sudden improvement j
in foreign demand; at best it is likely to increase
only gradually, as it has been doing in the past. |
Badly as it is wanted, foreign countries have not
the money to indulge in any wild orgy of copper
buying. Domestic demand has kept up wonderfully well, but has weakened in the last month or
two. What else is to be expected when steel buying is only 30 per cent of eapabity and when all
the business barometer curves are pointing downward?
Many copper producers have kept' up operations without making a profit, or actually taking
a loss, hoping from month to month that the demand would improve or that the other fellow
would close down. To close down a mine completely is an expensive thing to do, but we feel
that, unjust as it may be in some ways, the high

GEO. CLOTHIER
INTERVIEWED
"Mining conditions in the northern part of the province are
good and the outlook was never
better for a season of active development, especially in the Portland Canal district," says Mr.
George A. Clothier, district engineer for the department of
mines, who is a Vancouver visitor on his way to Victoria for a
conference with the department.
Mr Clothier has the distinction
of having the greatest area to
report on of any of the engineers
of the department. It is said of
him that he is able to go anywhere a goat can. No part
of the great territory has yet
proved inaccessible to him.
The northwestern, or District
No. 1, as it is known in mining
circles, over which Mr Clothier
presides for the minister of
mines, comprises the Queen
Charlotte Islands, Bella Coola,
Skeena, Portland Canal, Stick-
ene, Atlin and Liard. The district is roughly 700 miles in
length, of which the northern
part lies behind, or east, of the
Alaska panhandle.
This vast territory, much of it
unexplored, is scarcely as yet
"scratched" by prospectors and
miners, and in it is situated the
world-famous dividend-producer,
the Premier mine.
Last year in his territory, according to Mr Clothier, though
the production record showed a
general decrease, the work done
in development was extremely
important and the results were
decidedly gratifying.
Mr Clothier draws attention to
two drawbacks to the progress
of the mining industry. "Exaggerated statements by prospectors, promoters and budding operators are ultimately derogatory to mining," he says, "and
exaggerated priees for properties is about the surest way of I
holding on to them. I judge it!
better to sell Ave properties at,
say, $10,000 each than hold one
for $50,000.
"Prospectors," Mr. Clothier
continued, "this Beasos, like
last, are devoting themselves to
exploration work on properties
already staked rather than going
far afield and neglecting ground
they already hold."���Vancouver

DR. KIRKWOOD
BOOSTS SOME
The British American, a paper
published in Chicago, says:
"Dr. C. S. Kirkwood, well
known Canadian-American dentist, of 1562 Milwaukee avenue,
recently returned from a trip to
the Portland Canal mining district ef British Columbia, where
he is the owner of promising
mining property in what he described as one of the richest mineral countries in the world.
Speaking to the British American, Dr. Kirkwood said:
'Faith in the B. C.   mines  as
high dividend-payers is fast being indelibly impressed   on   the
minds of  outsiders, who  gradually learn of  the  phenomenal
and spectacular values,  ranging
from $8 to $200 per  ton,   being
discovered on and near the surface, and close to excellent water
transportation.     The   Portland
Canal mining district is  advantageously situated at  the  head
of the Portland Canal, an arm of
the Pacific Ocean extending inland, with practically no   expansions or constrictions all the way
up to where if terminates in the
Bear river.   Here in a beautiful
valley lies the town of  Stewart.
About two miles down  the canal J
are Hyder, B.C.. and Hyder, Alaska,   where the   Salmon   river
enters.   The gradual incline  of
both the Salmon and Bear rivers j
is remarkable, making transpor-j
tation an easy matter.
'The British Columbia government, recognizing the immense
value of ores in the several mines
being opened up this season, is
coming to the aid of this district
and putting in good roads, pack
horse and foot trails, and permanent bridges wherever necessary, and thus assuring the
transportation of mined ores to
smelters.' "

Officers Elected
At the annual meeting for the
election of officers of the Citizens
Association held last Friday evening, the following officers were
elected: President, H. W. M.
Rolston; vice president, Duncan
McLean; secretary-treasurer, G.
C. Andrew; executive committee, H.Hooton, E.A.Lewis, G.W.
Smith, Oliver Smith, John Campbell. Other than the auditor's
report, which showed a balance
on hand of $97.92. and on behalf of the Fire Department,
$29.23, no other business wag
dealt with. A meeting of the
Executive will be held next week
when matters pertaining to the
cemetery will" be gone into as
well as lining out some sort ofj a
program for the coming year.
Local Stocks
In the midst of what appears
to be almost a general slump,
Porter-Idaho, Lake View and
Silver Crest are holding firm.
Dunwell has softened slightly
during the week, and Glacier
Creek, contrary to expectations,
has slid to lower levels. The
cause of this slump can not be
explained, for the tunnel has cut
a large mineralized zone carrying two veins of good milling-
grade ore, to the north of which
point three cross-fractures show
on the surface, the drirting for
which, on the veins already cut,
will soon be commenced.
