The market remained fairly
active, though actual trading
slackened off. This is customary
at this time of the year.
General market conditions
were never better, and with the
steadily increasing field of the
Portland Canal district an assured rise in all local'stocks can be
looked for during the coming
spring and summer.
Weather conditions this winter have worked a great hardship on most of the operating
companies as snow transportation is the most feasible and
cheapest form of moving ore.
and freight. This has been most
noticeable at the Dunwell and
Glacier Creek.
The news being made public
by R. M. Stewart, managing director of the Dunwell, that plans
were being prepared for the er-
' ection of a mill, to start early in
April, caused a steady demand
for both Dunwell and Glacier
Creek stock.    Beth these stocks

Dunwell approaching the producing stage, much higher prices
are looked for.
B.C.Silver slackened off slightly during the week, but any
cheap offerings in this stock always find a ready market.
In line with other stocks Silver
Crest dropped a few points, but
this appears to be only temporary.
Porter Idaho was active on the
southern markets, with'an unsettled feeling prevailing. The
price on Porter Idaho has been
very erratic, but a steady condition is expected to be established
in the near future.
National Silver, which was
jvery active some few months
! ago, is expected to come into the
I limelight again, when informa-
I tion is made public on the pro-
I posed summer operations.
Independence     remained     in
j steady demand  with very   little
varying of the price.
Marmot Metals came into
slight demand, even though this
property closed for the winter. Very little cheap stock was
offering and on commencement
of the summer program higher
prices are looked for,
