Jack Scott. The new firm opened their Stewart shop for the
first time on Jan. 2.
I day, she said, she saw a bruise
developing on Ruby Dolan's arm.
Charles Bibeau repeated his
evidence given at the Corcner's
inquiry. Questioned by Mr Kennedy he said he had known Jas.
Donald since 1908, and that they
were very friendly; that while
at times he was a very fine type
of a man, at other times he was
very troublesome. Witness admitted that about six weeks ago
he had been called to the house
of Gladys Gale by  Ruby   Dolan,

accused, Gladys Gale and Ruby
Dolan, for trial at the Spring
Assizes in Prince Rupert, which

mining interests of the world, but in increasing numbers apparently the entire
public of this continent; people in all walks
of life, and in every Province in Canada,
and every State in the U. S. A.
The year 1926 is certainly, from every
angle, opening well. A very high percentage of successes have been and are
being obtained from mining development
in every section of the district. This has
attracted, and is like a magnet attracting,
exceptionally wide attention, that gives
every promise of making 1926 the greatest
year in the history of mining development

BIG MISSOURI AND
NATIONAL DEBT
The Vancouver press featured
recently the remarks of Pat Daly
regarding the Big Missouri, says
Mining and Engineering Record.
While Pat is a materialist, in
some matters he took a flier into
the realms of imagination on his
Vancouver visit and is quoted as
follows:
"As a matter of fact there is
enough ore on the surface of the
Big Missouri, if it could be economically mined, to pay off Canada's national debt.''
. The day before the "Province"
published this statement it  had
published a Statement of the net j we  absolutely  had nothing   whatever
. . to do with the sale bv   P. E. Rees,   on
debt of the Dominion, which
stood at $2,382,616,883 at November 30th, 1925. This does
not include upwards of two billion debt on the Canadian National Railways; the S.S.B. loans,
which will certainly require some
adjustment, or other loans theoretically secured.
On the Premier mine the average values run about $25 per ton
and it is rather interesting to estimate what quantity of this ore
would be necessary to contain,
in bulk, the value of the net
debt. It would represent 47,-
087,500 eubic yards  of  rock  in
| place. An ore body 27 feet thick
(approximately the average at
the Premier) and with 1000 feet
depth would be nine miles in
length to contain this volume.
On a steady production of 3000
tons per day it would take 95
years to mine. We are apt to
talk glibly  abont  the   National
, Debt, but the size of it is   decidedly larger than   an   individual
can picture.
The Big Missouri is,   we be-
: lieve, a very promising property
and we wish its owners all  suc-
'cess. We wish we could feel
that it contained enough gold to
! pay off the   debt  in   question.
! There would be a temptation to
advocate very pirect Bolshevik
methods, however. If it contains sufficient gold and silver to
equal one per cent of the National Debt it will still be entitled
to rank as one of the biggest
mines in the Provinca.
A cubic foot of unrefined gold
is worth about $325,000; a ton
about $535,000. A bar of gold
equivalent to the not debt would
be 12 inches x 12 inehes. x 7,330
feetinlength; it would weigh
4,453 tons. As the gross debt of
the Dominion is probably 2* times
the net debt, and. as our figures
have not taken into account any
working costs, the fallacy of
looking to any one agency   for a

To Wit:
We,  Herbert  W.   M.   Rolston   and ,
Henry D. Rochfort, Brokers,   both of
the town of Stewart, in   the   Province]
of British Columbia, solemnly declare:
1.    That as a firm or   as   individuals I
or about the first week of September, I

shares (500,000) of escrowed stock in I

2. That we were not as a firm or asi
individuals, in any way, shape or form,
or under any circumstances,  consulted |
in connection with the above   mentioned sale by P. E. Rees.
3. That we knew nothing of the
deal whatsoever until the day before
the first contracts were signed.
4. That the syndicate   to   take   up
the said stock was formed   and   consu-
mated absolutely independent of H. W.
M. Rolston & Co. as a firm or the mem-!
bers thereof as individuals. j
5. That we make the above declara-1
tion in order to refute certain reports ;
that are in circulation in centres out-1
side of Stewart and also to clear up!
a misunderstanding which appears to
have become fixed in the minds of some
of our clients, and in order to absolve
ourselves from any responsibility in
connection with the above mentioned
sale by P. E. Rees.
And we make this solemn declaration
conscientiously believing it to be true,
and knowing that it is of the same
force and effect as if made under oath

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H W.M.Rolaton & Co)
The marked features of the
week were Dunwell and Glacier
Creek, which came into strong
demand at rapidly increasing
prices. The official report that
the diamond drills had crosscut
two to three feet of galena on
the Glacier property in itself
proves of inestimible value to
both properties. As these stocks
have always been publio favorites, coupled with thc facts of
the development now being put
into effect greatly stimulates interest.
Silver Crest is in demand at
steadily increasing prices.
B. C. Silver remained steady.
Porter Idaho remained quiet
with a small demand from southern points.
The whole trend af the market
is upward and an enhanced price
is looked for in all the local
stocks of merit.
