STOLEN THUNDER
WITH its customary perspicacity and
geographical knowledge the Seattle Post
Intelligencer has placed the Cassiar district in Alaska. Alaska Territory has been
played up pretty heavily in the Spirit City
because it is American territory, and the
Yukon gold which, more than anything
else, dragged Seattle out of the doldrums
into which it had fallen in 1897, has to
pass through Alaska to reach there, was
carried on American ships and deposited
in American banks.
The Cassiar country today is in the
same position as the Yukon in regard to
transportation and will remain so until a
route of communication is established between Stewart B. C. and Telegraph Creek
B.C.
In a recent number of the P. I. is a
picture of R. W. and Mrs Martin, the latter holding a tray containing $216 worth
of Cassiar gold nuggets, and the former
leaning over her shoulder gazing sou If ully
at the glittering heap.
The Seattle paper says this gold is
an Alaskan product. Whether it is through
ignorance or an inclination to deceive the
public, the fact remains that British Columbia is not given the credit for this gold
production to which it is entitled.
However, the P.I. might be excusable
in a way. The United States Congress
once appropriated $50,000 for the relief of
supposedly starving residents of Dawson,
the good Solons in Washington thinking
that Dawson was in Alaska; and once when
a bill was before Congress for an appropriation to continue work on the Alaska
railroad, one member, with wisdom profound, wanted to know how much had been
appropriated on the construction of Lynn
Canal, and whether the work was yet finished.
Seattle, though, should know more
about local conditions than Washington.
Until the Post Intelligencer confesses its
ignorance we shall be inclined to believe
that paper is claiming the gold fields of
British Columbia for Alaska through
malice.
DUNWELL'S IMPORTANCE
The service of the Bank of Montreal is as
wide and comprehensive as the postal
system itself.
This service enables customers living in remote
districts to transact their banking' by mail as
satisfactorily as if they could make personal
visits.
IT MAY be a little premature to discuss Dunwell. for the reason that very
little is as yet known of the exact program, other than that it is one of reorganization, with a view to renewing operations in the very near future, including
equipment and operation of the mine.
This much, however, is sufficient good
news for the time being and will be of the
greatest possible assistance to the whole
district; not only will it stabalize business
in town, but will as well renew confidence
in the district mining possibilities, on the
part of many people throughout the province, and as a result encourage others to
carry on and assist in developing a few
more Dunwells, which are only awaiting
the necessary capital, backed by sufficient
nerve and perseverence.
There are several properties in the
district that have reached a stage in their
development when, with sufficient capital
available, they will soon pass the prospect
stage to that of mines to be equipped.
British Columbia capital has already
been amply rewarded for its grit
and determination in Dunwell,
and great credit is due not onl>
its promoters but those people of
Victoria who have so steadfastly
puftheir money in, and thereby
made Dunwell possible. The
great rewards which they will
receive are justly due them.
There are other ir perties in
this district capable of rewarding
their backers as handsomely as
Dunwell will; all that is needed
is a little of the same pluck and
perseverence displayed by the
Dunwell backers. A great harvest can be gathered if the soil
is tilled.

PROSPECTING
CLEARWATER
Tough Country But Good
Indications, Says Expert
Prospector���Ten Cents to
Pan Common
The following letter was received from K. Brydon by Capt.
A.J.Gaul of Stewart recently.
It describes the Clearwater district in which Mr Brydon is now
prospecting, and is of considerable interest. The Clearwater
river empties into the Stikine
from the north, 45 or 50 miles
down river from Telegraph Creek
and well within Brir'sh Columbia.   The letter in part follows:
"We have just returned 'from
a rather hard trip up the north
fork of the Clearwater, a trip
lasting a month, through a canyon 25 miles long. This is through
the paleozoic formation immediately bordering the coast range
'. batholith. The prevailing country reck is highly mineralized
argillites, traversed by granite
porphyry dykes varying in width
from a few feet* to about a mile.
The river throws a tremendous
amount of flood gold and ten cent
pans were common. We ran out
: of grub before we cjuld get to
the source of the geld, but are
starting out again in a coup'e of
days, and prospects look good.
"No one has ever prospected
the upper reaches of the river
and we are the only ones to ever
get through the canyon in the
summertime. The basin at the
head of the canyon very mu h
resemble* a placer country, be
ing very much eroded, and it is
for that we are heading. So far
we have only seen it from a distance, during the last trip, but
next time we will make it.
"We have not been down to
the contact yet, as our present
lead looks very good and it is receiving all our attention; therefore we intend to fight it through
to a finish. It appears to be one
ofthe most favorable chances
that I have ever been offered by
Old Dame Nature."

(Quotations by H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
One of the largest cash stock
transactions in the history of the
camp was completed  the  early
part of the week   when   one  of
the original owners of the Porter
Idaho sold his escrowed stock  in
full to a  local   syndicate.     Tlie
most outstanding feature of this
deal, from the stock standpoint,
is the fact that all the   vendors'
stock of Porter Idaho has   been
placed in escrow for  a   further
period of one year���namely until
February 1, 1927.     It  is  confidently expected that   with  the
remarkable showings at the mine
and the steady shipments going
out, that Porter Idaho stock will
greatly increase in value in   the
very near future.
Continued shipments of high-
grade from the L&L  Glacier
Creek are bringing  this  stock
more and more into public favoritism; though this stock drepped
a few points  this  week,   ready
buyers were coming forward and
taking advantage of  the  drop.
The management report that the
government intend   to  continue
improving the trail,  thus allowing the company to rawhide  ore
down the hill during the  winter.
Marmot Metals stock remained
steady; reports frem   the  mine
management    that  the   winter
camp had been  completed   and
the short tram was in operation,
will help to strengthen this stock
The Dunwell situation is   gradually being cleared up, and a much
better outlook   is  promised  for
the whole Bear river section.

I hand which will permit resumption of work without   unnesses-

Since the meeting it has been
unofficially reported that it is the
intention of the company to employ the best management procurable on the continent. This
wilh ample capital as referred to
in the meeting, will assure the
absolute future of Dunwell.
During the Dunwell negotiations surface stripping and open
cutting, has been done on the
showings on the Sunbeam claim,
and has shown the main vein to
be continuous for nearly 900 feet
and varying from two tw twelve
feet wide, with values from $24
to $250 per ton in gold and silver.

WitA a Moral
When "Doc." Walker, one of Ketchikan's progrtssiv* mei-
chants, returned from his summer vacation, he found business
in the store not booming any, at least so he could notic it.
Did he weep and wail about the town being on the bii
He did not!
He commandeered a whole page in the Ketchikan Chronicle
for advertising purposes and went after tne business his -*r'i,tJ
had been missing.
This story was told the News by a member of the Ketchikan
Board of Trade who was here last week.

Don't advertise just because you are doing business
