DRIVING TUNNEL

Mickey Nash is driving a tunnel under contract on the Rig
Mike property, about six miles
down the canal, which caused
somewhat of a sensation this
winter through its production of
silver-lead ore on the surface in
conjunction with free gold. The
vein angles up the hill from the
shore line, and 150 feet of depth
can be gained hy following it in
from the beach. 11 is here that
the tunnel has been started. The

DEVELOPMENT
ON THE L & L
As drifting proceeds on the
cross vein recently encountered
in a short crosseut tunnel in the
L&L Glacier Creek property,
the vein is increasing in size and
is now 4i feet wide, as compared
with three feet where first encountered. Wm. Irwin, the manager, who came'down from the
mine Wednesday, says that the
ore is not quite so heavily mineralized as further back in the
drift, and that the vein shows
signs of disturbance, due to its
contact with another vein, which
will be reached within the next
25 feet. The snow is going fast
but no crust forming, which
makes the mushing hard, even
with suowshoes. There is now
about nine feet of snow at the
camp.

Chamber of Mines the secretary,
Henry Browning, has aome nice
comments.
"This is an excellent description," says the letter, "of the
formation of a proper Chamber
of Mines and the carrying on of
its operations in a manner calculated to produce the utmost efficiency in looking after the welfare of the mining industry, and
keep the public in sympethtic
touch with mining development.
"Without such dreams there
would be no realities. In a sense
it is a dream that architects and
engineers have when they draw
the plans of some famous building, bridge or edifice. The most
wonderful inventions and achive-
ments are often the outcome of
dreams which gradually become
thoughts and then crystalize into actions. We would like to see
your dream come true for Stewart. We ourselves are still hoping to be equipped in a similar
manner as set forth in your excellent description."

NATIVE SONS ORGANIZATION
THE Native Sons of Canada is an
organization that has caused considerable
comment in the recent past, both editorially and conversationally, due very largely
to a number of irresponsible statements
both written and spoken from time to
time, by individuals, and not the body as
a whole. Such statements cannot be taken
seriously, for they are as natural to a new
movement, conceived in enthusiasm, as
bubbles on a lake under a heavy rain.
Canada for years has attracted immigrants from not only all ever Europe but
also Asia and the rest of the world. These
nationals,    upon    assuming    numerical
strength within  the  country,   naturally
formed their own societies, primarily for
the purpose of social intercourse, and to
assist their ever arriving countrymen.   It
is safe to say that Canada today contains
such societies representing nearly every
nation, or people, in the world.    Each in
itself is a good, and fully warranted organization, doing good work while adhering to the purposes for which they were
formed, but here is where the shoe pinches.
In not one or two, but in more than half a
dozen cases, these societies used their influence both political and otherwise, not
maliciously so, in order to obtain employment for their own members, to the exclusion, in many cases, of the native-born
Canadian. Thus a situation was created
that demanded similar action by the native-born, in justifiable self protection.
This however is not all that falls within the scope of their endeavors.   Such an
organization has within its power the accomplishment of a great work.    By the
establishment of high ideals of service,
self protection will materialize automatically.    The realization of this, though,
will take time, patience,   foresight and
level-headed,   good judgement,   for  the
road will be rocky, narrow  and  steep.
Dangers there most certainly are, not external, but rather of that more insidious
nature, internal, for which an ever-watchful eve will have to be on the lookout.
These can be best combatted by a politically non-partizan and non-sectarian policy of education, not of a text book type,
but more with a view to the dissemination
of a knowledge of Canada and Canadians,
past and present, and the building up of
a strong, tolerant and generous spirit of
service, that is, and has been, the fundamental element in the greatness of all peoples down through the ages, and without
which no people have ever become, or ever
will become, a nation.
The Native Sons have a great work
to do, and a great future, the realization
of which will be exactly in the proportion
to which is applied a soundly conceived,
broadminded policy, such as they are not
only noted for, but fully capable of.

The Portland Canal News of Stewart
in their issue of February 5th published a
front page article, over a column in length
dealing with the activities uf the Matilda property, which is being operated by the Kitsault
River Mining and Development Co. The article
also dealt with mining conditions in general in the
""""������-���"���-"'���" j Alice Arm district. We wish to
extend our appreciation to the
editor of the News for his broad-
minded principle, and we assure
him that his action will be reciprocated by us. Alice Arm, Anyox and Stewart are three thriving mining camps situated in the
same mineral zone, and the progress of any single one stimulates
the growth of the other two. The
News haa in the past published
mining News relative to the district, and we have done likewise
in regard to Stewart mining
news, but a still larger exchange
of news could be effected with
benefit to both districts.���Alice

NON-METALUCS
OF GREAT VALUE
Stressing the importance of
non metallic mineral production
in Canada, Dr. M.Y.Williams, of
the University of British Columbia, speaking in the Board of
Trade auditorium Friday evening
under the auspices of the B. C.
Chamber of Mines, said this production in 1924 represented $107-
000,000, compared with $102,000-
000 worth of metallic minerals.
As civilization advanced,   said
the speaker, non-metallics would
come into greater use because of I
the increased  demand   for  clay'

Several inquiries for mining
properties received at the headquarters of the Chamber of
Mines at Vancouver were passed
on to the local branch for attention. Good progress was reported with the undertaking for a
census of mineral claims in this
district, a work in which the
members were asked to give individual co-operation and assistance.
Espeaanza Shipments
Shipments of ore from the Esperanza mine continue to be
made with frequent regularity,
says the Alice Arm Herald of
Feb. 27. On Monday 200 sacks
of second grade ore was shipped
to Anyox, and on Monday next
four tons of high grade will be
shipped to Trail smelter. The
shipment last Monday was the
fourth to be made this month.
These shipments are made by V.
Stella, T. Mack and associates,
who have a lease on the old
workings. Mining of ore at the
mine still continues.

Gambling in margins  on   the
New  York  Stock Exchange   is
about 984 times as risky   as  the
wildest "wildcat'* ever promoted
when the  mining  camps were
really wild and wooly. Yet there
are    newspapers   which  report
stock-gambling as a  legitimate
business (perhaps also printing
the racetrack betting odds) while
barring their columns to mining
news.
Such morality is akin to that
of the Glasgow wench who brokt
off a liaison because her companion in iniquity "whustled on the
Sabbath."
Some mine shares are called
"good gambles" but the word is
not used in the draw poker or
Wall Street sense. The mine
"gamble" is undertaken rather
in the spirit of scientific inquiry.
A tunnel driven into a hill where
surface showings indicate the
possibility of an ore body, is no
more a "gamble" than is the inoculation of a guinea-pig to determine whether a certain serum
will destroy a specifie germ.���

Endorsements of mining from
unexpected sources are always
interesting and frequently more
valuable than most of us realize,
says Mining Truth.
A recent issue of the weekly
paper, The Spokane Woman, carried an interview with F.O.Berg,
manufacturer of tents, awnings
and other canvas goods. He
drove the first automobile west
of the Mississippi, and that was
the main subject of the story,
but toward the end was this par-
agraph;
"There are the same chances
today for young men to make
fortunes here in the West that
there were a generation ago.
In mining the surface has not
been scratched. The country
needs young men who will go
out and become good practical
mining men,"

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
Portland Canal stocks are practically  holding  control  of  the
Vancouver market.    During the
early part of March record   business in local  stocks   was  executed on  the  Vancouver  Stock
Exchange and by all apperances
this activity is here to  stay,  especially in   the  more  advanced
properties such as Dunwell and
B.C.Silver,    whose   stocks are
steadily advancing, with most of
the  more  promising   prospects
following closely.
Good reports are continually
being received from the L&L
and the market is expected to
respond to the good news in the
very near future.
Jack Fitzgerald from the Independence reports that the completion of the winter program is
nearing an end with very satisfactory results.
It is expected that in the very
near future the Lakeview will
commence summer operations,
and with the well known prospects of this property, the stock
is expected to reach last summer
prices.
National Silver remains inactive, with very few sales. This
stock will bear watching from a
speculative standpoint, as higher
levels are looked for when summer operationn start.
Silver Crest remained steady.
When the wider market for
Portland Canal stocks is really-
created, which is rapidly approaching in actuality, the development of B.C.Silver and Dunwell, the demand for local stocks
of merit will be greatly enhanced. It is announced by H.W.M.
Rolston & Co., the local stock
brokers, that an ever broadening
field ot enquiries is continually
being received. This, coupled
with the already .mentioned facts
of the actual development, makes
it practically an assured fact
that some of the cheap stocks of
today will be stocks of excep
tional value in the course of a
yerv little time.
