PRESS dispatches tell of a big rush
to a new gold field discovered in southeastern Siberia. One report says that thera are
20,000 gold hunters on the way. No miner can
take out of the ground more than 7000 roubles in
gold. After that he must go home and give somebody else a chance. This is in accordance with
the new regulations passed by the Bolshevik
authorities. It may be good Bolshevism, but it is
mighty poor mining.
THAT mining is not the hazardous
financial investment that is generally supposed is the effect of arguments and evidence advanced by the Financial Review
of New York. Gold and silver mine dividends exceed those of all banks, says the
Review, which adds: "The conservative
New York Tribune recently created considerable chagrin among the certain investment bankers by publishing the following statement relative to mining investments:
" ' One of the things that investment
bankers have had to admit is that the gold

When I asked her to wed,

For him no bank account shall swell;
No angel watch the (rolilen stair
To welcome home a millionaire.
The man who never asks for trade
By local line or ad displayed
Cares more for rest than worldly gain,
And patronage but gives him pain.
Tread lightly, friends, let no rude sound
Disturb his solitude profound;
Here let him live in calm repose.
Unsought except by men he owes;
And when he dies go plant him deep,
That naugnt may break his dreamless

" To this the editor of the Mineral
Age of Denver comments as follows:
" 'And we might add to the above that
farm loans and livestock loans have broken
more banks in the Mountain States during
the last two years than mining loans did
in all the years since '59. With a few such
facts as the above creeping out it is not
surprising that the bankers are loosing
their strangle hold upon investment
money, and their capital is again turning
to the mining field.'"

Stewart is large enough, pretty enough, progressive enough, and old enough to put on long
pants.    Let us get together and incorporate.
Here is a revised list for birthstones: For the

stone: for the borrowers, the touchstone; and for
most of us, the grindstone.
TOO   SMALL   FOR   HIS   JOB
The shrinkage in the national revenues for the
first eleven months of the year 1924 exceeded only
$54,000,000���about enough to build four lines of
railway out of Stewart into the Peace River.
About the poorest way in the world to settle a
problem is to hold a general conference and have
lot ot speeches made. We would rather have an
ounce of work than a ton of conferences and
conventions.
PREMIER KING has had three years
within which to make a showing on his
job of improving the fortunes of the
Dominion, says the Prince George Citizen,
but the cash register would indicate he has
fallen down. Public accounts just released show that the debt of Canada at the
end of February was two million dollars
greater than it was at the end of February
1924, and there has been a big slump under
every important head of receipt.
It looks to th.3 News as if a boy is
trying to do a man's job.
A good many peode are bending their energies towards communication with Mars, when
better results could undoubtedly be obtained by
working for more direct communication with the
east from Stewart.
WATCH   OUR   SMOKE

old that have not produced half the wealth
that the Portland Canal zone has  fur

The Harvard research expedition has made a
discovery among the pyramids of Gizeh, which
puts Colonel Tut in the chechako class. The
Egyptian king, recently dug up, lived 2000 years
before Tut was turning handsprings for meals or
looking for a blind pig.
The name of Alderman Sid Macdonald, foreman of the Prince Rupert Empire, is mentioned
as a labor candidate for Skeena riding in the
forthcoming Dominion elections. Mac is one of

PREMIER REPORT
(Continued from Page 1.)
of the mine workings along the
ore ore zone, and during 1925
the possibilities of ore in this
area will be investigated by suitable diamond drilling and other
exploratory worK.
The estimated general average
ofthe 147,880 tons broken in
stopes as at Dec. 31, 1924, is .55
ounces gold and 17.3 ounces silver. With gold figured at $20
per ounce and silver at 60c. per
ounce, this represents a grass
value of $21.38 per ton.
A conservative estimate ofthe
assured and probable unbroken
ore down to the 4th level of the
present mine workings is 420,000
tons averaging .54 ounces gold
and 14.1 ounces silver per  ton.
Id addition to this, there is a
considerable tonnage of ore developed above the 4th level of
rather- complex mineralization
and slightly below profitable
grade at present milling capacity
which, later on, it may become
possible to treat at a profit.
Also there has been indicated
by the diamond drilling so far
done below the 4th level, 146,000
tons averaging .39 ounces gold
and 3.2 ounces silver per ton.
