Officials of Company Arrive
With Full Equipment for
Starting Up Development
On Property
B. 0. Erickson. locator, with
Wm. Forrest, of the Rufus group
of claims near the head ot Bear
[river, arrived last Monday night
with A. P. Ernst of Seattle, sec-
| retary-treasurer of the Rufus
Silver-Lead Mines, who have
taken over the property for the
purpose of developing it. They
brought in a quantity of equipment and supplies and have se-
c.ir.da warehouse in Stewart
in which to store company goods
while they are waiting to be
moved up the hill. Included in
the supplies is a complete assay
plant which will be taken to the
property. This will enable them
to keep an aceurate cheek every
day on the result of mining op-
irations.
The Rufus group consists of
tijiht claims which are considered as among the best of the
i-pper Bear section. A large number of ore exposures have been
traced, and wor's this summer
fill consist largely of thoroughly

GOLD ORE ON     !
TEXAS CREEK
Henry Hummel, manager of
the Texas Creek Comstock property, created more than a passing flurry of interest early this
week in Stewart when he exhibited what is undoubtedly the
finest specimen of high-grade
ore ever shown in the camp.
The piece is nearly the size of
your hand and consists of galena
in a quartz gangue, but with
streaks and nuggets of free gold
scattered all through it.
Henry admits  it  is   a  piece
of float,  but in   the   company's \
office in Hyder is a large collec-
t on of samples  taken   from  in
place on the claims, and many of
these show identically the   same;
character   and  quartz   matrix.
The  two   engineers   who   have
been on the ground tell him that
gold-galena ore is apt to   occur
in any of the shoots  where  the
cross fissures  cut  through  thei.
main reins.
To date there have been 14
galena showings found on the
property,   but   little   work   has

CONSERVATIVES
ENTERTAINED
Interesting Meeting Held
By E.J.Conway <ind Other
Supporters of Conservative Cause
Some degrees of warmth  pervaded the political meeting held
last Tuesday night in the Hotel
Stewart   by   the   Conservatives
for the purpose of  gathering in
rotes for  their  nominee,   E. J.
Conway.     Local   residents   had
become acclimitized to these ex-
jpressions of  quadrennial   mad-
, ness and some  of  them   talked
j back   to   the   speakers,    which
made more   interest  for  those
who went there to be entertained
Before this paper is read,   the
election will be  over and everyone will again have his  shoulder
te the wheel of progress for Portland Canal mine development.
But in regard to the meeting:
It was good. E. J. Conway was
perhaps somewhat handicapped
by having a Vancouver lawyer
take up too mueh of the time, as
the audience would have liked
to hear more from Ed himself.

FIXING THE PRICE OF LEAD
CRITICISED though it often is, we
are disposed to think that the fixed lead
price of the American Smelting & Refining Co. is, on the whole, a goon thing. As
most of our readars know, this price is
fixed by that company from time to time
according to variations in supply and demand, and the figure is used as a basis
of settlement for all lead-bearing material bought by that company for smelting.
It is also used for _ large part of the lead
that is sold by the company, on contract,
to consumers, though, in selling, the prices quoted in Mining Journal-Press are
frequently the basis of settlement, and a
considerable business, chiefly in individual
sales of small lots, is done at the best
brice that can be obtained. But in times
of soarcity the Smelting company has
shown a commendable desire to prevent a
runaway market and has sold such lead as
it had available, at its fixed price, even
when high premiums might have been obtained for small lots by breaking away
from its policy.
Now, with lead prices declining, it will
be noticed that the A. S. & R. fixed price
is somewhat above that for which lead can
be obtained from some sellers.   The policy
10c. per lb.; in fact, the price might have
gone above that of copper. And then, in
April, the price would have dropped three
or four cents in a week. This would have
been a bad condition, for with the excessive prices, production would have been
unduly stimulated and consumers would
not only have been obliged to make violent
changes in their prices for finished lead
products, but would have probably have
turned to substitutes where possible. Then,
with the weakening in the market, the
stage would be set for a reaction.
The idea behind the fixed price is, of
course, to make conditions more agreeable
for ths A. S. & R; to prevent, so far as
possible, the forced reception of a large
amount of lead-bearing material at fancy
prices, foilowed by aale of the lead a month
or so later, after it has been smelted and
refined, at a loss at greatly depressed prices. But this moderate amount of price
fixing, like that of the U. S. Steel Corpor.
ation, we believe to be for the good of the
industry. It has none of the evils of a
complete and country-wide price-fixing policy from which we suffered during and
immediately after the world war.���Engineering and Mining Journal-Press.

Dr' R. C. Wallace is the President-
Elect of the Canadian Institute of Mining
and Metallnrgy, during a very important
period. He has crowded the years very
full of action, so far, and may be said to be
just getting under way. As the Commissioner for Northern Manitoba, he had a
large and important mineral kingdom all his own,
Manitoba needs, very much, the balanced development which her northern mineral area gives
some promise of disclosing. As a representative
of Canada to the Mining Congress in London, this
summer, he will be going where he is already
known, and our cause will not suffer at his hands.
Dr. Wallace combines hard work and sound ideas
