"BRITISH?"
THERE is an old saying and a true
one, that the influencs of liquor oft-time
portray the real man. The same holds
good concerning the ego of some writers;
they become so intoxicated with their own
arrogant egotism that they cannot help at
times exposing their real character in all
its warped and prejudiced ignorance.
One such case is an editorial in the
Vancouver Sun of August 25 entitled "The
Problem of Empire" which we recently
read in going over some old papers. Reading it, one is reminded of poisonous anti-
British propaganda circulated throughout
tht U.S.A. and Canada by the Hearst publications in the early stages of the war.
This editorial says in part: "But the
British Empire is too far off, too vague,
too immense, for any to say 'This is my
Empire '   Except for the purposes of
patriotic buncombe and political bombast
with which the Conservative tries to juggle between a free-trade England and a
protective Canada, imperial patriotism is
as false and artificial as the dreamer's vision of Utopia."
We quite believe that to the puny vision and narrow-guage mind as exhibited
by the writer of these lines, that such is
the ease; but when he lays it down as a
truth and a law encompassing the whole,
he exposes an arrogant, egotistical ignorance that is colossal.
What an insult to those patriots, even
from his own city of Vancouver, whose
bodies lie in "Flanders Fields:" What an
insult to the widows and orphans, to the
wounded who are maimed for life! We
ask���did not many of them sacrifice for
Empire? What right has he, holding a
"safety first" job, sitting in a cushy swivel chair in a nicely warmed office in Vancouver, to slander even one of these?
Such a show of ignorance would not
be worth commenting on, if it were not
circulated with authority of one of the big
B.C. dailies. Everyone is entitled to his
own opinions, but let him not profess to
speak for the whole.
ALASKA WEEKLY IS IN FAVOR

We are pleased to note that that ably
edited paper, the Alaska Weekly, published in Seattle by men who not only know
the north but who as well know mining,
and deal with its various phases in a sane
and intelligent manner, and who for seme
years past have been working in an attempt to awaken the people of this Pacific
Coast to the enormous possibilities and
mining future of northern B. C, the Yukon and Alaska, is supporting our humble
campaign for sane mining legislation.
The Alaska Weekly, published in a
land that has had its fill with several
years' experience of blue sky legislation,
served up in every conceivable form that
the politicians and lawyers, seldcm mining men, wish to serve it, speaks with
knowledge and undoubted authority. It
is therefore interesting to note that in an
editorial on August 28, speaking in support of the recent action of the Minister
of Mines of this Province, under autuority
of the Mineral Survey and Development
Act, the Alaska Weekly closes with this
statement: "Such methods, we believe,
would prove more efficacious than
any blue sky law."

lake a large three-room log cabin
with a concrete floor and galvanized iron roof, was ready for occupation; (the move to these comfortable quarters was made the
ay after our arrival.) Feeding
into this lake are three substantial creeks, two of which, being
close and easily harnessed, will
afford ample water power for
mining purposes in days to come.
Glacial Scenery
On a timbered point opposite
is S. G. Benson's camp on the
Daisy group; nearby the outlet
of the lake flews into the larger'
Summit lake, which forms one
of the headwater supplies of the
far-distant Naas river. Into
both of these lakes the northern
extremity of Salmon glacier
breaks off in towering ice cliffs.
On the west side of Summit lake
another spectacular glacier,
reaching down from the top of
August mountain with terrifying
steepness, adds to the pictur-
esqueness of the scene. Away
to the southwest the gigantic
Chickamin field appears to reach
for hundreds of miles into the
sky. On the south, towering
rock pinnacles and crags, split
I with waterfalls and backed on
the east with more white-blue-
green ice canopies, afford contrasts to the heather benches
and timbered slopes to the north
that are beyond description in
their transcendent splendor.
Well Situated for Mining
From a mining viewpoint the
claims are splendinly situated.
The topography is such that the
main fissure veins, running
across the hillside can be approached economically from several directions. Timber in quantities is accessible; water ii
abundant and though the distance from tide-water is greater
than that to many properties it
is compensated for by  the  easy
professional cards.

higher market is looked fer in

this stock is attracting a great

and hills, and ever-changing
views, brought us to the parklike claims of world-wide repute,
now held by the Standard Mines
Co. Pat Daly was there. It is
hardly necessary to say that his
first question was, 'have you fed?'
It was late for dinner, but
"Shorty," the chef, had a full
course meal ready with a smile,
almost before we had washed
our hands.
Great Ore Showings
After that, the big new showing! "Tremendous" best describes it. Uncovered along a
creek for many feet from a point
where the overburden is too
heavy to warrant removal at present, to another where the vein
stands up like a cliff, the mineral is evident in such quantities
that one is tempted to ask why a
steam shovel has not already
been ordered to handle it. The
width had not been determined.
I The hanging wall was covered
by Cascade creek at that spot.
A crosscut tunnel was being
driven to find the foot wall and
had encountered a dike, beyond
which it was expected the ore
would be found again; estimates
of the width ran te about 40 feet
feet and assays over $200 in
silver and lead. Owing to the
body of water in the creek at the
time, and te development having
only just started, no average assay had been obtained but   from
j the appearanee of the ore, so
much of which is almost solid
galena, it would be safe to estimate the average as high.
High Grade Gold Ore
Pat next took us to some of
the work done by A. B. Trites,
and his associates who recently
allowed their bond on the property to drop. The shafts and
open cuts had disclosed some
very high grade ore on another
vein which was sufficient to make
the uninitiated wonder why the
late owners had abandoned their
chances. Then there is the
showing further down the creek
from which ore running from
6 to 8 oz. in gold was taken,
to make us wonder more. Pat
Daly says he has been looking
for an open-air mine all his life;
now he has one that will last
him the rest of his life if things
work out the way he thinks they
will. There is enough evidence
on the Big Missouri to convince
the most skeptical that some
day it will be one of the big
things of the continent.
