BIG MIKE HAS
BONANZA ORE
Samples From a Discovery
Made Last Fall Near the
Beach Create Sensation
In Stewart
Massive cube galena, free gold
lead carbonate and lead oxide in
a pearl-quartz gangue which is
jn places strongly honey-combed
and leached, is the spectacular
ore now being dug from the
"Big Mike" property by Mike
Milos. Harry Wilkinson and
Mickey Nash, the last named
representing John McDonald
who owns a third interest with
Milos and Wilkinson, the three
havinar located the property last
fall. The ore is a peculiar rind
for this section, and is not common, so far as can be learned, in
any mining district.
Free gold and cube galena are
not as a rule considered as affinities in ore, yet specimens brought
to town last Saturday by Harry
Wilkinson show specks of the
precious metal in the quartz
gangue matter, and have created
an unusual amount of interest
on the part of miners wintering
in Stewart.
The discovery*of the Big Mike
is an illustration of the possibilities existing for the prospector
even in a section that is supposed
to be pretty well combed over.
The showing upon which the
men are working is situated only
about six miles down . the canal
from Stewart, and from the apot
where the rich ore is being extracted a pebble can be thrown
into the aeep water of the inlet.
The vein upon which they are
working runs diagonally up the
mountain from the beach. Near
the water it is two feet wide but
barren. About 200 feet from
the water it is cut by a small
creek which forms a steep but
small canyon. Here they are
putting in a short crosscut, and
the last round of shots before
Wilkinson left had broken a foot
"fore. He was unable to tell
the width of the vein at that
P��int, but will have the information when he comes up for the
next week end.
The fact of the property lying
*-close to the water obviates
ar*y shipping problem, and ore
taken from there will not need
to be "high-grade," in the local-
���y accepted sense of the word, to
��e a shipping product.
Superficial prospecting last fall
disclosed the fact that there are
several other veins on the property which, however, are less
accessible and appear to be low
��''ade on the surface.

FINE ADDRESS
BY ARCHDEACON
At a meeting held in Moose
Hall Wednesday evening Archdeacon Rix, Ad.-ninistratorof the
Episcopal Diocese of Caledonia,
gave an interesting lecture on
the activities of his Church in
British Columbia.
Speaking fluently, the Archdeacon held the attention of his
audience for over an hour. Starting with the coming of the white
man to British Columbia, then
known as New Caledonia, he described conditions met and the
difficulties fought by the pioneers
of those 'days. Intermingled
with his historical account of
industrial progress was description of the church work undertaken in all the settlements that
could be reached. This mission
work quickly assumed very large
proportions and became a heavy
burden of expense to its supporters in England.
Eventually most of this work
was assumed by Canada, and
now the administration of vast
areas is undertaken by the division of British Columbia into five
bishoprics, viz those of Columbia, New Westminster, Kootenay, Cariboo and Caledonia, the
last mentioned being the only
survival of the original name of
the province. In adddition to
being the most sprasely populated diocese, Caledonia is in area
more than the other four combined, more than half that of B.
C. and more than a tenth of that
of Canada; it reaches from the
Yukon boundary on the north to
Dean Channel, and from the
Peace River block beyond the
Rockies to the western boundary
of Queen Charlotte Islands. On
the death of Archbishop DuVernet this diocese lost also the stipend received from the Church
Missionary Society in England,
which supported him.
Archdeacon Rix went fully
into financial affairs as concerning this diocese, and in conclusion pointed out what a tremendous moral obligation the people
of Northern B. C. owed to the
Church of England workers, not
only to those who had financed
the missions, but to the men of
exceptional calibre who had carried them on; asa small instance
he pointed out that not one dollar had been contributed by the
people of Stewart to the building
of the church and rectory here.
The Rev. A. W. R. Ashley, as
chairman of the meeting, tendered thanks for the extremely
instructive address. Applause
given to both the lecturer and
the chairman showed that appreciation was very genuine.

LOOKS GOOD FOR USE FOUND FOR
MARMOT METALS   STEWART DOGS
As the most open winter in the
history of Portland Canal district
draws to a close, plans are being
laid for starting operations in
the hills much earlier in the season than was ever before attempted, and prospects are good
for an exceptionally long season
for outdoor work of all kinds unless, as is possible though hardly
probable, there should be a heavy snowfall before spring.
One of the properties which
local residents are most anxious
to see again in operation is Marmot Metals, on Marmot river.
Last fall, too late in the season
for serious developments to be
undertaken upon them, a number of extremely favorable mineral showings were found and
well prospected along the surface. Some of these are, in fact,
the best showings on the property from the standpoint of both
size and values. Plans have been
made for the thorough exploration of these showings underground, and until these operations can be undertaken, there
is a tantalizing wait for those
who are interested in the property.
There is no doubt in the minds
of those acquainted with the situation, that Marmot Metals will
blossom out next season into a
real mine, and climatic conditions indicate that this consummation may be realized earlier
than was anticipated.
Archdeacon G.A.Rix returned
to Rupert yesterday.
The Moose will hold their regular meeting in Stewart next
Thursday night. On Saturday,
Feb. 27, a meeting will be held
at Premier.
"Every dog has his day."
Dog days are supposed to come
in the hottest part of the summer, but they are coming early
irt Stewart this year ���next week
in fact.   (See ad on Page 4.)
It is an incontravertible dogma
that the hospital needs money,
and no dogmatic argument will
affect the dogged determination
of this institution's friends to
raise the kale. They will be
around in dog carts and on foot
all next week dogging prospective producers of onion skins. If
the town were not so doggoned
far nctrth it would be decorated |
with dog-fennel wreaths and
dog-wood festoons.
The dog-star is in the ascendent, so trot out your K-9 and
let him ki-yi himself into popular
favor. At last a useful purpose
has been found for him. As a
medium for helping the hospital
he has acquired a valid excuse
for his existence aside from providing a sanctuary for friendless, frenzied fleas.
Too bad Old Dick has been
gathered to his 4-fathers. He
would have made a noble runner-
up in this contest. But then,
many a famous man has died
without having ever been chosen
Queen of the May.
The writer knows not whether
the following doggerel is correctly quoted, and advises looking through your old dog-eared
Third Readers to verify it:
"And in that town a dog was
found,
As many dogs there be,
Both mongrel, puppy, whelp
and hound.
And curs of low degree.

COMPANIES
CONSOLIDATE
Absorption by the Victoria
Mines of the Silver Ledge into a
new company known as the Victoria Mines Consolidated, which
is to be financed by New York
bankers under an arrangement
made by Major A. R. Ross,, was
taken up by meetings of the
shareholders of the two companies in Victoria on Feb. 10.
The new company will have a
share capital of $1,000,000 at $1
a share. Holders of Victoria
Mines shares will receive share
for share in the new company
for their present stock, while
Silver Ledge holders will get one
share of new for about five shares
of old. The stock will be handled
on the New York Mining Exchange and money advanced for
full development of the properties this spring. Other properties nearby may be absorbed by
the new company. The amalgamation of the smaller properties
is necessary to complete a property of sufficient size for one of
the big mining development companies to handle.
A follow-up meeting of the
Victoria holders to ueal finally
with the plans is being called
within a few days.
NEW FIND ON
BIG MISSOURI
Important Vein Located a
Mile North of Main Camp
���Contract Already Let
For Long Tunnel
"Babe" Fortin of Premier left
for Victoria yesterday.
Another find which is considered by the management as of
considerable importance, has
been made on the Big Missouri,
according to F.E.6igot, who visited the property this week and
brought down ore samples from
a new strike made near the north
end of the group and about a
mile from the main camp.
The ore is almost soiid mineral
and very complex in character,
showing galena, copper, zinc and
iron pyrites. Assay values are
understood to be about $40 per
ton, mostly in gold.
The vein shows on the surface
about five feet wide, and the
mine management is sufficiently
impressed with its appearance to
let a 500-fo��t tunnel contract,
which has been undertaken by a
part of the crew hitherto employed in the main workings.
The topography of the ground is
such that this tunnel can be
driven in on the vein, which is a
distinct advantage.

FIYE   DOLLARS   PER   YEAR
INVESTORS' VIEW OF MINING IN 1926
HOW does the investing public view
the prosperity ofthe mining industries for
the coming year? It is commonly accepted that security prices discount conditions
in the business world for several months
ahead, but expected future conditions do
not entirely govern the price of a stock���
accumulated earnings and the possibility
of increased dividends therefrom also have
an important bearing. Stock prices in
general at the beginning of 1926 were
much higher than in January, 1925, and
yet business men do not foresee much
brighter prospects now than they did a
year ago. But a year of prosperity has
added a substantial amount to the intrinsic values of securities.
In the annual review number of Min-*
ing Journal Press���the issue of Jan. 16,
1926,���was published the usual tabulation
of mining stock prices during the last year
and for the first time the net change for
the year was also included.   01 fifty-two
copper companies, the share quotations of
forty-one were less on Dec. 31,1925, than
on the same date of 1924, only eleven being quoted higher.   This does not indicate
much optimism by investors as to a marked improvement in the copper market, and
compared with the prices of industrial securities, shows a marked aversion to invest in the stocks of copper producers as
a group. Quite a different story is exhibited by the lead and silver-lead groups, in
which seventeen stocks show an increase
and only seven declined, though the price
of lead was 9 l-4c. at the end of 1925, compared with 9.70c. a year before.   Appar-
*
ently no serious reaction is expected to
affect this group.   Gold mines also seem
to be well considered, for of twenty-five
companies, the shares of nineteen advanced during the year.   The continued favorable development of the northern Ontario
mines helped this group.   In the straight
silver group, the shares of seven companies advanced and those of five declined,
and of the iron and steel companies, nine
were considered more valuable and eight
less so.   AU the sulphur, vanadium, diamonds and platinum, advanced, and of the
mining, smelting and refining companies,
advances were registered in seven out of
the eight companies in the group.   Plainly, custom smelters are expected to do well.
Copper companies, therefore, are the
only ones in which the investing public is
disappointed; it has hoped for fancy prices
too long and too many interviews have
been printed in which some president or
chairman  says  that  European  demand
nfust soon be enormous, that domestic demand is unprecedented, that stocks are
insignificant, and that higher prices must
Of necessity result within the   next  six
weeks.   "The price should be firmly at
the 15c. level in thirty days" is a favorite
observation.   And yet the fireworks never
explode.   Rather do the large companies
seem satisfied to turn out the biggest tonnage of copper that the world has yet seen produced, at prices which show little variation from!
the present level, prices which are low  and yet
allow most of them to pay good dividends,  owing
to the large scale of operations and to improved
methods of mining and metallurgy.

HONEY BEES AND MINES
According to the Philadelphia

annually worth much more than
all our gold and silver production
combined. Without investigating the subject closely, we are
willing to let the statement   go   purposes, and which u not. ti

however, is that if such   be the
case the fault lies not with   the
mines or the   miners,   but   with
those who saddle the miners and
the seekers after new mines with
such burdens that they   are  un-' flve ycars and improvementa D

FINE SHOWING
AT HE LAROSE
According to the Herald the
encountering of high-grade ore
at the LaRose is the chief topic
of interest in mining circles of
the Alice Arm district.
Latest  reports   are   that   the
raise is still being continued and
that there is now   two  feet  of
j solid high-grade ore on the hang-
ling wall, while   the   balance  of
the face of the raise is composed
! of a Rood grade of ore.
During the week a shot was
put in on the foot wall side of
i the raise, from which unexpected results were obtained, the
ore exposed being impregnated
with native silver. This interesting discovery will be explored
at a later date, after the raise
has been extended to the surface, which will be some time
during April.
From present indications, the
Alice Arm Herald says, there is
no question but that the .LaRose
contains a considerable body of
high-grade ore, and when it is
taken into cousideration that the
property is only commencing to
be developed, it is reasonable to
; expect that a much larger ton-
' nage will be proven up as development work is carried on.
ence library is to be established, ]
where mining reports, maps and
data will be available for those

SMITHERS MINE
CHAMBER ACTIVE
Plans for future activities were
made at the first general meeting of the newly-formed Omineca Division of the British Columbia Chamber of Mines at a meeting on Wednesday night, when
permanent officers were elected
with L. S. McGill at the head,
says the Interior News, Miners
of town displayed great interest
in the meeting and a big forward
step in the development of the
mineral resources of this district
is presaged by the campaign of
publicity to be a prominent part
of the duties of Qmineca Division during the coming year.
In opening the meeting L. S.
McGill gave a review of the steps
he had taken in company with
A.C.Garde during their recent
visit to Vancouver to gain some
attention for the minerals of this
disttict and also of the steps taken for affiliation of the local body
witn the patent Chamber of
Mines for this province.
One of the first works to be
undertaken is a census of all mining prospects in the district on a
standard form in use by the B.C.
Chamber of Mines. This will
carry all information as to the
nature and value of the ore as
well as of the development work
done, and will be on file in Vancouver, Smithers and other large
centers. The minister of mines
is to be invited to address the local miners at an open meeting,
while opportunity will be taken
of the presence ef any mineralogists or geologists in the district to have them address the
miners.

ESPERANZA
SHIPMENTS
The Esperanza mine which is
one of the most regular shipping
mines of the north coast, is again
producing high grade silver ore]
and the prospects at the mine for
further shipments in the immediate future are exceedingly bright
On Monday last seven tons ofj
high-grade silver ore was ship-j
ped on the Cardena to Anyox j
smelter. This ore was shipped I
by Messrs. N. Fraser, C. Lee
and T. Calif, who have a lease
on part of the workings. They
are now engaged in development
work, which is necessary before
more ore can be extracted.
They are driving a raise on the
No. 1 tunnel, which commences
on the Esperanza trail. They
are also driving a new tunnel on
the workings where they have
extracted the ore. They have
driven 22 feet and expect to encounter the ore when an additional eight feet has been driven.
This new tunnel was made necessary by a large amount of water running in the old tunnel and
which could not be drained off.
Messrs V. Stella, T. Mack and
associates, who have a lease on
the old workings at the mine,
are shippiug 11 tons of high-
grade ore and two tons of low-
grade to Anyox smelter on Monday next. They have a considerable amount of unsacked ore
at the mine and will make another shipment of about eight tons
before the end of the month.
The ore was extracted from the
No. 3 tunnel, where they are
working on a vein from two to
seven inches wide, but which is
expected to increase in width as
work progresses. A total of nine
men are now working at the
mine.���Alice Arm Herald.

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H.W.M. Rolston & Co)
Practically all the local mining
stocks came into heavy demand
during the latter part of last
week and continued through until this date.
The most noticeable was the
Dunwell, which under heavy demand jumped up to $2.35 with
an ever increasing demand both
locally and from southern markets. The cause of this appears
to be a report issued by the Dunwell Company to the effect that
some $2,500,000 worth of ore is
actually blocked out coupled with
the fact that the winze from No.
3 tunnel to No. 4 is holding in
ore and the raise from No. 3 tunnel to No. 2 is also proving the
extent of the known ore deposits.
Glacier Creek as usual showed
marked strength on the Dunwell
rise. Higher levels in both the
stocks are looked for.
Porter Idaho came into demand at higher levels and shows
signs of coming back to its old
price.
The demand for Marmot Metals has caused the picking up of
all the cheap offerings and much
higher prices are looked for.
B. C. Silver is steady and on
the slightest drop comes into
heavy demand.
It is rumored that the Emperor
mine is very strongly financed.
This stock is well worth watching.
L&L Glacier Creek is steadily advancing, and it is expected
will reach higher levels on resumption of shipping.
