CLOTHIER'S SUGGESTION
GEO. CLOTHIER. Resident Mining
Engineer in this district for the Provincial
Government, advocated a very good idea
in his Annual Report of last year.
This was to tha effect that the Provincial Department of Mines issue a pamphlet
for the use of, and circulation among,
prospectors, detailing for their information localities in which to prospect, how
to get there, and the logical outfitting
points for each area. Such a pamphlet
could give an outline of the geological features of eaoh district, and the nature of
tha mineral occurrences. It could abo detail the various methods and tests by which
a prospector could determine the various
metals he might discover, and in addition
to these features it could contain a synopsis of the mining laws of the Province.
A pamphlet of this nature should be
���f considerable influenoe in re-generating
that necessary element in the mining in
dustry, the prospecting fraternity. Many
young men in British Columbia would, by
its assistance, be consid^tbly encouraged
to prospect, who at tlie moment are reticent in doing so, from lack of knowledge
and experience. The same would possibly
apply to young men from points outside
the Province. It would _lso be of service
to those prospectors outside the Province
who may wish or by it would be encourage-
to come here.
The capital outlay necessary for the
fulfilment of the idea need be very small,
for the Resident Mining Engineer in each
district could supply the information,
which could be compiled by departmental
officials, printed by the King's Printer and
circulated by the various Mining Recording officers, Resident Engineers and the
Department.
The idea initiated by Mr. Clothier is
an exceptionally sound, sane, and in every
way progressive suggestion, and one that
would be of considerable stimulus to the
industry in general. In fact so eminently
beneficial and practical is the idea, that in
the interests of the development of the industry in .this Province, the Department
should lose no time in putting it into effect.

THE development of the Boy Scout
movement in Stewart under the able direction of the Rev. A. W. R. Ashley, is
meeting with the success that such a movement warrants, and is a great source of
educational recreation to the boys participating.
Contrary to the opinion held in some
quarters, the Boy Scout movement is not
for the purpose of inculcating militaristic
ideas in the minds of the young, but rather
to develop a spirit of service to others.
An age of materialism, selfishness, is
the major root of all the troublea of our
present-day civilization. The motto practised by all, of material gain for the individual, haa bred wideapread sel
fiahnaaa which, in turn, leads to
selfishness of people against people, class againat class nation
againat nation, terminating in
endless strife and misery for
countleaa numbers.
It is to combat this over-development of materialism, and de
vtlop to a greater degree the
kindliness of heart, and instinct
to serve that is inherent in all
mankind, that is the direct objective of the Scout movement.
By the stimulation of character,
handicraft and physical health,
theae three pointa of efficiency
art harnessed ro the service of
othera, thus engendering a larger
freer, more crenerous, happier
civilization.

"The mineral collection thia
year is very creditable and is
probably '.the best that Prince
Rupert ever had. All the large
mining companies in the surrounding district have contribnted
handsomely and deserve special
credit,"-said A.C.GardetM. E..
of Smithers, at the conclusion of
judging the mineral display at
the exhibition, acco. ��� ;.ng to the
Prince Rnpert News. Mr Garde
stated that the various classes
of ore were well represented,
which spoke well for the whole
of northern British Columbia for
values and high character of ore.
Mr Garde considers that the mineral sent in this year to the fair
goes to show that northern B. C.
has taken seriously to mining
and has a very bright future
ahead for eventual shipping.
The Bulkley Valley display waa
awarded the silver cup for the
best district exhibit, the display

Board of Trade. The district

TELLS TOURISTS
Dr. C. S. Kirkwood, ,who will
be remembered as a visitor to
this district, ia telling the people
of Chicago about the attractions
of the Portland Canal from the
tourists' standpoint. In the
British American of August 16
appears the following:
"No where in the world, saya
Dr. C. S. Kirkwood, dentist, of
1562 Milwaukee avenue, can you
take a vacation trip to equal climate, land and water travel,
prairie expanse, snow capped
mountains, gorges, ravines, raging waters, mirror lakes, waterfalls, timber, foliage, ocean, islands and general scenic beauty,
with a profusion of wild flowers
included, as can be had by visiting Stewart, British Columbia.
"The route is the Canadian
Pacific to Vancouver and boat by
the inner pass among hundreds
of islands. There is no rough
water and the observer may see
porpoises by the hundreds and
sometimes a whale. Arriving at
Stewart, hotel accommodation
with electric light and bath may
be had at $1.00 per day; good
'eats': air and climate the best,
with the aurora borealis dancing
directly overhead. Autos take
you from hotel up the Salmon
river to the famous Premier mine
which has paid millions of dollars in dividends the last three
years; also up the Bear river
whare you can see opposite the
George Copper Mines, the 'hole
in the wall'���a hoie in the side
of the mountain where the water
rushes out, and no one knows
where it comeB from. A little
further up you can have your
photo taken in a cool, refreshing
place, on a glacier 20 to 23 miles
wide and 150 miles long. Flowers may be seen in lull bloom less
than a foot away from the ice.
These sights are worth Beeing,
says the doctor, who recently
returned."

On his last trip down from ths
Eldorado T. V. Wilson, manager
of ths property, brought in a peculiar specimen that looks like a
snake but isn't a snake, because
it has a mouth like an esl and no
eyes are apparent He found it
on the Salmon river glacier, at
least half a mile from any laad.
The worm, or reptile, or whatever it may be, is shout e foot in
lsngth, ths thickness of sn ordinary lead pencil with white snd t
black stripes running its entire
length. On his arrival in Seattle Mr Wilson will turn ths specimen over to the University of
Wsshington for identification.
The writer asked Bill Frsser,
one of the oldest prospectors of g q Silver
ths district, whether hs hsd sver
seen an ice worm, and received
an affirmative answer. His description tallied with Mr Wilson's specimen, which hs had
not seen.
, Mention of ice worms almost
invariably causes derisive laughter except on the part of old-
timers who know they exist In
fact there is s common variety
resembling ths little whits wire
worms found in ths ground snd
about an inch in length. When
the sun forms puddles of water
on ths ice, these small worms
may be seen in myriads wiggling
about in the little pools. But

Local Stocks
During the past two weeks a
considerable slump occurred in
local stocks, ths exact reason for
which it is hard to determine, as
ths results on all properties in
ths camp continus to bs exceptionally promising. The slump
sppesrs to have commenced with
two favorites, Glssier Creek and
Dunwell. spreading rapidly to
the others. However, during
the past two days a sharp recovery wss made in thess two stocks
with a correspondingly strengthening market for all others. Independence stood the slump well
