Mines. This is an increase over 1923 figures of $3,811,965, or ap-
preximately 9.2 per cent.
The increase in the production of the metalliferous mines of the
Province is one of the most striking features of mining activity
during the past year. The metal mines have made a production
valued at $32,310,600, as compared with $25,767,062 in tho previous year. Thus the actual advance is $6,543,538, or 25.3 per cent.

Copper
As to copper the situation is
i ather unusual for there is shown
to be an increase in the quantity
produced and a decrease in the
value of the same. In 1923 the
copper output totalled, roughly,
57,750,000 pounds. In 1924 it is
estimated at 63,100,000 pounds.

MINING PARASITES
THE FAVORITE indoor sport with
a certain class of human sharks is trying
to becloud mining titles. Let something
good be discovered or developed, and immediately frantic efforts are made by
these gentry to find some excuse for "declaring themselves in on it." This is especially true of the United States, where
the mining laws are more complex than
here, and where sharp practice is generally conceded to be more prevalent, though
we must reluctantly admit that our neighbors have to go some to keep in the lead.
These pirates, as a rule, style themselves mining men; but they are no more
mining men than the eagle who steals the
seagull's catch, is a fisherman.
The Portland Canal District has had
some experience with this sort of graft.
The most recent case is that of the "Silver Ores Incorporated," of Delaware, U.
8. A., vs the Premier Gold Mining Co.,
in which seven mining claims were claimed on the ground that the Delaware outfit
had purchased them from one Fader, who
sold them to the Premier. The latter company however made sure of the title before purchasing. If the Delaware company had any legitimate claim, it would appear to be against Fader; but the plaintiffs may have figured that the Guggenheims, rather than stand the annoyance
of a trial, would make a cash settlement.
From the fact that they did not appear in
court, this would seem to be their reason
for bringing suit.
Another case was that of Caldwell vs
the Daly Alaska Co., which was thrown
out of court by an Alaskan judge, but not
before the compauy had been put to considerable annoyance and expense, spending money on lawyers' and court fees that
they should never have been forced to
spend. Then there were the attempts
made against the Alaska Comstock and
the Homestake and Ibex groups on Texas
creek, which were so plainly "pnt up jobs"
the court disposed of them in short order.
However, mining is not alone as a
target for schemers. In every line of human endeavor, those "who toil not, neither do they spin," continually harass
their industrious neighbors.
They are the fleas of the human race.

CABIN AND CONTENTS
DESTROYED BY FIRE
A cabin near Third street, occupied by Wm. (Blackie) Irwin
and owned by Jimmy Lydden,
was completely destroyed by fire
which started about 11 o'clock
last Friday night. Irwin, who
waa in bed when the blaze broke
out, succeeded in saving his bed,
and Charlie Bibeau managed to
pull the stoye out, but all the
other contents were destroyed,
including three large tents and
prospecting outfit belonging to
Lydden, as well as his boat
equipment, oars, sail etc. A
number of other prospectors'
outfits which were also stored
there, went up in smoke. The
building had been recently lined
inside with lumber, and the fire
started between the ceiling and
the roof, being caused by an
overheated pipe.
Pan creek. Ficklin had been in
there a number of years ago with
a party of big game hunters and
found a promising prospect.
Pat McNamara is driving team
for the Provincial Government.
Alf Morganstern is wintering
horses at Callbreath's ranch.
Aleck Doman is running a trap
line at the head of the Iskut.
Weather conditions are good.
After an unusually heavy snow
fall early in September, warm
rains and open weather took
most of this off, and a spell of
zero weather setting in about
November 1st, froze the side
streams and many of the crossings in the main Stikine, and
insures good ice for winter travel
The Dickinson Mining Com-!
pany are leaving in a few days
with the last of their supplies
and saw mill machinery for drilling and prospecting their property at the mouth of Dease
creek. They are using a Ford
tracter, and while they were delayed somewhat early in the fall
on account of the muddy condition of the road, they had splendid luck after tne freeze-up
came.
