MORE CARE NEEDED
The taxpayers of this province have
for years spent hundreds of thousands of
dollars on what has been much flaunted as
a most efficient system of education. They
have poured money into this Department,
willingly and to with an extent blind faith
taking for gospel and as authentic, the
many facts taught the children of this
Province.
Therefore it was with great surprise
when the other evening the Stewart Board
of Trade discovered a statement contained
in one of the School Text Books to the effect that while the Premier Mine is in British Columbia, it ships and has shipped millions of dollars worth of ore from its dock
at Hyder Alaska.
The gentleman who compiled this information no doubt poses as an educationalist. It is a good thing that this term
can be applied over a wide range of meaning. It is to be hoped* that this gentleman's work in the compilation of our
School Books is not extensive, for if he
can be so far wide of true facts, in a small
matter of this kind within the Province,
the question that naturally presents itself
is, how many other mistakes has he made
and how much missinformation has been
taught in our schools.
There has been of late, at great ex-
This would appear to an extent just mere
eye wash, what would appear to be more
practical, would be more care exercised,
by the Provincial Department of Education in the selection of men, for the compilation of our text books. What apparently is required, is the type of man who
is sufficiently interested in his work, to
prove conclusively the authenticity of his
statements before authorizing them for
publication.

ANOTHER SIGN POST
There has been for some time innumerable signs of a marked return of prosperity to the mining industry, of not only
British Columbia, but the entire northwestern portion of this continent.
One of the latest sign posts on this
road to prosperity has just been erected
by the American Smelting and Refining
Company, in their reopening of their
northwestern headquarters in Seattle.
It is evident that this large worldwide aud virile mining corporation is well
satisfied that the Pacific Coast is on the
verge of very great mining activity. This
move upon the part of this aggressive corporation, should attract the notice of other
Mining. Companies, and justify them in
paying increased attention to this Pacific
slope. No man ever caught a train by
standing on a street corner watching the
crowds go by.

' capitalization which the market j European Plan 11.60 per .lay ui
has placed upon the shares.  Still I	
there is the dazzling record of
the Premier to be taken into ac
count, coupled with the contingency that sooner or later the
position may warrant a fusion of
interests, lt is early days yet,
however, to tak of an amalgamation, and Mr Hockley wisely
administered a cold douche to
the fanciful talk given credence
in a Canadian paper that negotiations to that end are on the
tapis.
Financially it is satisfactory to
notice that the Selukwe is in a
strong position, having written
down its interests to a more or
less nominal level and having
ample cash resources to carry on
with. A plan of the mining position moreover, as disclosed in
the plan, accompanying the report, shows that it is from the
Premier that serious proposals
for amalgamation may feasibly
be expected. Meanwhile the
shares enjoy the distinction of
being practically the only live
market in the Canadian group.
Actual dealings, both before and
after the repert, carried the
price to 19s but as is usual in tho
absence of anything particularly
striking at a meeting, there has
been a set-back to 17s (id, more
perhaps in sympathy with   tho
