IT'S A CRIME TO SELL DUNWELL
IT IS said and truly so, that opportunity conies to every man. But Opportunity
is a fickle Goddess, who, if not woed when
willing, seldom comes again.
As in other things, so in mining.
Dams Foftune smiled, and still smiles,
upon the backers of the Dunwell; but just
at a time when she was prepared to yield
to her conquerors in generous manner, it
would appear that they became shy and
frightened, and under the influence of that
greatest enemy of mankind, Fear, are apparently trying to retreat, by trying to sell
Dunwell to someone whom they think is
better able to carry on. Tone individual or
aggregation of men in Canada has such
an opportunity opened up, as has been laid
at the feet of the Dunwell Company.
Low elevation on a gentle slope, a
wagon road almost to the tunnel's mouth,
timber, water power, accessibility, all
within five miles of deep tidewater, combine for most economical operation that
would be hard to duplicate anywhere in
the world. Hundreds of tons of ore that
can be shipped direct to the smelter; thousands more of high-grade milling quality
not only proven to great depth, but also
traced on the surface over a great distance
���what more does the mining man want?
whoever he is, or whoever they are, they
have no business trying to play the mining game, much less have any authority.
To say that Dunwell cannot be operated successfully by a British Columbia
owned company is an absolute fallacy.
Hollinger was once a small stock operation; the Guggenheims were originally
peddlers in the mining camps and many
more of the most successful mining operations were founded on small beginnings.
Mining history is full of such facts. To
say that British Columbians cannot do the
same as others have done is not only false,
but admits incompetence.
Why not reorganize Dunwell, step out
and employ an experienced mine manager,
place him in full charge, even at a salary
of $1000 per month, rah e enough money
to install a small 50-ton mill and go to
work. Dunwell can be put on an operating basis for $100,000, and yield to the
shareholders far greater profit than they
will ever get by selling out.
This would create a British Columbia
owned and operated mine.     Dividends,
pay-roll and supply account would practically all remain in the Province.    A B.C.
mining group would thereby be created
that would hasten the day when we would
not be forced to go to London, New York,
Montreal  or  Toronto   for  capital  with
which to develop our natural resources.
It is a crime against the Company.
It is a crime against tha District.
It is a crime against the Province.
To sell Dunwell���and cold feet are no
excuse.

SUIT FOR IHE
PRINCE JOHN
(Continued from Page 1)
York were false.
In Position of Trust
In connection with the staking
it waa contended by Mr McLean
that this was really done by Mr
Mackenzie and that as agent of
the defendant company he had i
a right to hold the property fori
that company.
Mr Taylor held that in view of
the fact that the Prince John |
company had not had its licences I
that it was not in a position un-;
der the act to re-locate. Thej
Exploration company was thej
one that should have looked after
these licences. He held that the j
o��ily way out was for re-stakine*
along the line followed and that!
ithe Prince Joha shareholders:
were to be looked after in the
matter.
Court's Decision
The court, however, in delivering oral judgement at the end of
a three days' trial said that effect should be given to the contention of Mr McLean in its entirety. The plaintiff company,
said His Lordship, had no right
of action. It had been dilatory
also in proceeding.
In the opinion of Mr Justice
Gregory the strongest ground
upon which he could base his
judgement was that put forward
that the plaintiff company heldi
the property in trust for the defendant company. To allow the
plaintiffs to succeed would, he
felt, be a miscarriage of justice.
The defendants had spent a lot
of money on the property. The
j plaintiff company had n�� assets,
iand yet it was contended that by
 j a slip it could get possession   of
j this property.    On the  ground
^ j that it was to hold the claims  in
j trust for the defendant company,
he pointed out  that  there   was
I nothing by which the rights  of
'the defendants could be enforced
if the plaintiffs got possession.
Blamed Mr Mackenzie
His   Lordship   attributed   the
blame to Mr Mackenzie that the

��� | defendant company did not have
its miners' licences. He was the
man who was in the position
that made him responsible for,
seeing that this was carried out.
Mr Mackenzie, as the agent of
the company, should have done
all he could to get the property
for that company. He, however,
had got the transfer of it te
others. It would be a gross injustice, he felt, to have Mr Mackenzie profit by this transaction.
While it had been held that
Mr Mackenzie aid not know of
the re-stakin��, he felt that this
was incredible. He was satisfied
that whoever did the sraking it
was with the connivance of Mr
Mackenzie and for his benefit,
and he would decide that he
could not keep the property.

Enquiries Treated in Strictest Confidence.
(Quotations by H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
Continued improvement of the
Dunwell strike is drawing public
attention again te one of the district's favorites, as Dunwell has
always been considered by men
who know, te be a big mine in
the making, and the hitting of
high-grade on the surfacfe practically assures the continuation
of 1000 feet to the north of the
ore body in No. 3 tunnel. In
view of these facts the stock is
in steady demand at increasing
prices.
Starting to ship high-grade
from the Porter Idahe has bro't.
this stock very much into favor
and it is in big demand, especially by those who have taken
time to look into the prospects of
the property. The Management
announce that they will not need
to go to the public for further
financing until such time as heavy machinery is required. The
smelter returns this year will
leave a handsome profit after all
exploration and current expenses
have been met. A much higher
level in Porter Idaho is expected.
News from the Management
that the long crosscut tunnel on
Lakeview has cut 12 inches of
high-grade at a depth of some
300 feet caused a stiffening in
this stock.
The big Dunwell strike being
less than 500 feet from the Victoria line and the vein traced
into this property, considerably I
strengthened Victoria Mines
stock.
L&L Glacier Creek remains
in demand, with active trading.
Marmot Metals is in strong demand with very few offerings.
The management reports good
progress with very satisfactory
results.

LIQUOR LAW GETS
FOUR IN TROUBLE
(Oontinued from Page 1.)
Josephine Ault and Bob Math-
ieson of Hyder B. C, and Henry
Rivard of Stewart, each plead
guilty of unlawfully selling intoxicating liquor and each was
fined $300 and costs. William
Mitehell of Stewart plead guilty
of having some beer in a premises not a private residence nor a
guest room and was fined $50
and costs. In each case the
Crown Prosecutor asked that the
minimum sentence be imposed.
Henry Rivard, who owns the
building occupied by the government liquor store in this town,
figures that the stools were sent
all the way from Victoria to get
back the money the Liquor Control Board had paid him as rent.
He is taking steps to oust the
Vendor Store and gain possession of the building for himself.
He also claims he is marked as a
special victim because he beat
the case when they "picked on
him before."
