DURING the lean years of the Portland Canal district, before the
Premier proved to be such a great
mine and turned attention in this direction once more, Stewart, which was
built so well but hurriedly in 1910 went
almost to ruin, the weight of many
| snows wrecking all but the strongest
! buildings.
As late as June 1 there were  several
I wrecks   on   the main street which was
i in a delapidated  condition  with broken
; down buildings.    All of these have now
been repaired except the one belonging
to P.   Burns & Co.   This  building  will
be a total ruin   unless   repaired   before
winter and  it   is understood  the firm
intends to get busy on it.
As nearly as can be learned at this
time practically all the buildings will
be occupied this winter and several
hundred persons will winter in the district���which will be quite a contrast
with twenty-seven last winter.
Give Farewell Supper Party.
Mr. and Mrs. J. R. McDonald before
their departure for the season gave a
supper party at the King Edward
hotel Wednesday night. About fifty
were present from Stewart and Hyder.
Mr. and Mrs. McDonald proved the
best of hosts. The evening was enjoyed by everybody and was enlivened
by songs, recitations and stories by
the charming hostess, Billy Orr, Jack
Stewart, Harry Gibson, E.H. Terwil-
liger, Government Agent Jack, W. R.
Macfarlane and others. Mr. McDonald may return during the winter.
Inspects Sir Donald's Properties.
F. H. Minard of New York, consulting engineer for Sir Donald Mann,
left on Thursday. While in this district he inspected the Big Missouri on
Salmon River and the Ben Bolt up

500 feet before the vein was encountered. This proved to have a width of

peatance of potential mines. During
the whole summer of 1918 the mine
was shut down, work being concentrated on the construction of a sleigh-
road from the beach to the mine, a
distance of lti miles, and a short dock
at Hyder for the purpose of shipping
ore the next winter. Owing to unfor
sen delays in the delivery of equi|i-
meut and an exceptionally early
break-up of the snow-road in the
spring, only 512 tons was shipped,
which gave smelter returns of $168,000.

We arp strong optimists upon the
copper situation and therefore very
naturally, also upon all other branches
of. the mining industry. Copper mining has always been the leader and
will probably continue to Le. As prosperity again overtakes it, so win prosperity, in increasing volume, overtake
all other branches. The mining Industry is entering the greatest era in our
country's history. At least, that is
mu opinion and it is not altogether a
case of the wish being father to the
thought. The world needs metals���
for reconstruction and for specie. We
have more of them anil more kinds of
them than any nation on earth. Why
ilionld we not be optimistic? Pessimism is impossible.���Northwest Mining
Truth.
VS COPPER OUTPUT REACHED
ZENITH?
Taking the advance estimates of the
tiled  States  Geological   Survey  for
t year as a guide, we think it may
Bsonably be adduced that domestic
bduction of copper reached a max-
linn   ln   1918,   when  smelter  output
taled 1,908,500,000 pounds, compared
fill  l,SS6,0(Ki,000 in  1917, or Increase
J 1.17 per cent.
[After  allowing  for  the  tremendous
Itput in 1917 and 191S, it Is now reply estimated   that   surplus  cannot
more than one billion pounds, or ap-
foxiniately six months' output at last
jr's level, and that in spite of the
ct that the armistice and late:- peace
apped  the  flow  of  refined   metal  to
urope  and   caused   a  backing-up  of
Itxllgious  proportions.    Yet the esti-
Ste of one billion pounds in surplus
puis to be an ultimate limit and the
iitiabilitles are that it is really very
Ensiderably less, counting refined
pper, blister copper, material in pro-
be of refining and stock in hands of
I'igti smelters or in transit from for-
gn smelters to refineries In this
iiintry.
I nder   these   conditions,   which   we
llleve   may   safely   be   taken   as  ap
loxinubtely correct, it seems very pat-
tt that the teeling of pessimism ap-
rent for the past few  months, and
Dw beginning to life, was never war-

question   is   where   will   it   come
foni.    The answer seems   very  plain
us.    lt must come from the  I tilted
Mes, and from foreign mines owned
