work a vein containing three feet of solidj hjm 8,ash   It wou]d have been
brass.   Had the writer gone outside and
floated that "brass mine," that would have
been a wildcat.
These two instances are easy; but it
would indeed be a reckless individual who
would class any claim, in a known mineral
belt, as a wildcat, unless physical condi-
WHAT IS A WILDCAT?
DURING a recent visit outside  the
writer was asked on numerous occasions
for advice as to stock speculations in the
Portland Canal District.   The answer given was invariably the same:    "I   don't
know.   The property you are considering
may be alright.   Work alone will tell.   It
lies in the mineral belt, and who can say
that any location in this belt,  having a
surface showing, is not a potential mine?
Stock was sold in two companies owning
the ground now covered by the Premier.
Both   companies   failed���but   were  they
wildcats?   The Premier, after being turned down by mining engineers too numerous to mention, has paid in dividends upwards    of $7,500,000.   Powder is  what
counts���and money-money   with  which
to buy more powder and pay the miners
and the supply stores."
A  story  was  published  within  the
writer's time of residence in Vancouver,
about a discovery of aluminum at Point
Grey.   It was said that Indians used to tip
their arrows with this metal.   Now everybody knows, or  should   know,   that   the
metal aluminum is derived from clay by a
metallurgical process, and never occurs in
the native state. Therefore anyone staking
a native alumiunm mine at Point Grey and
selling stock in the same, would be floating a wildcat.
On a trip north from Hazelton in 1916,
through the Ground Hog coal fields and
around Chuchone, Tatlatue and Tutahde
lakes at the head of Findlay river, the
writer worked on the off-side of the pack
horses with an Indian packer, and in three
months became pretty well acquainted
with him. At Kispiox, north of Hazelton,
the Indians have so far succeeded in keeping both prospectors and big game hunters
out of their preserves.   The Indian packer
tions were such that no work could possibly ever be done upon it.
The wildcatter is more easily defined.
The company promoter who will pay
50 per cent commission to his salesmen
and maintain offices, automobiles, traveling expenses and advertising on the other
50 percent, is a wildcatter
The promoter who makes glaring misstatements in order to induce the public
to invest, is a wildcatter, although his
property may have undoubted merit.
The man who floats a mining company
on impossible ground, barren formation
that was never known to carry mineral-
bearing veins, or inaccessible ground that
could never be worked at a profit, is a wildcatter.
We believe the wildcatter to be more
frequently a fool than a knave. Knowing
little or nothing of minerals, and nothing
at all concerning the economics of mining,
he frequently deludes himself; and himself
being deluded, could not believe he is deluding the public. This variety of promoter is more dangerous than the knave.
But who can tell whether a property, properly located and owned, and known to lie in the
mineral zone, is a wildcat?
We know of one company, now selling shares
in Vancouver, who have a property on which one
of the original owners had an expert report ancl
then deeded his half interest over to his partner
for no consideration; on which another partner,
taken in later, refused to put up any part of the
assessment work. Both of these men live here
and know the district well; neither thought this
property worth developing; but is it a wildcat?
We don't know.
We know of another property, now incorporated, whose locator was called various kinds of a
fool by other prospectors. The property lies in
the mineral belt. Is it a wildcat? We don't
know.
There are two fundamental rules that the
intending investor must observe: Know that the
property you buy into is located in the mineral
belt and has some kind of a surface showing:
know above all things, that the people yeu are
dealing with are honest and will give you a fair
run for your money,    lf you are speculating in
t
mining stocks,  take a fair profit:   don't expect
"~~ every   prospect   to   be   another

jpert and Joseph Wells, Alice
Arm. A block of shares is to be
sold at 50 cents for developments
purposes and may be obtained
from the secretary or Mr Morrison, who has been appointed selling agent.
The LaRose  was   one   of   thei
earliest properties staked in   the j
Alice Arm district.    It is located
in   the   Kitsault   valley,    seven1
miles   from   the   Dolly   Varden
j railway wharf, and is less than
j a mile from the railway  tracks.
iThe   property   consists   of   five
crown-granted claims.
Considerable development has
been done, and in 1919, 22 tons
of ore was shipped to the Trail
smelter which yielded 353 ounces
silver and 3 ounces gold per ton.
Present work on the property
consists of 125 feet of tunnel
and a shaft  35   feet   in   depth.
(Considerable surface work has
also been done. Samples taken i
from ore in the shaft have given
returns of from $20 to $1400 in
silver per ton. The new tunne!
to be driven will encounter this
ore at a depth of about 200 feet.
In his annual report to the
Minister of Mines for 1919. Geo.
A. Clothier, resident engineer,
says in part: "To the nsrth of
this showing the hill falls rapidlj
along the strike of the vein, and
it would be good development
work to try and pick up the vein
at some depth to drift on it. On
account of a slide that would be
dangerous in winter, it would
reqHire a crosscut tunnel possibly
-150 feet long to get to the vein,
which would give a depth on it
of about 200 feet below the present workings. There is every
reason to suppose that there are
other ore sheots in the vein similar to the one now being worked, and if these could be opened
up at a depth of 200 feet it would
put the property on a profitable
basis.
'���Judging from the persistence
of the vein so far, the extent
and value of the ore shoot already opened up, and taking into
consideration the location of the
property for shipping, I would
have no hesitation in recommending the undertaking of the development werk mentioned.
