seen exposed in the district, although visiting enly a very small
fraction of it. He urged his
hearers, who included many prospectors, to continue in their
faith, and loyalty to the district,
and to boost for it in every con-
cievable way. This is warranted,
he said, for in no other section
of the globe were the possibilities for vast production so potent
He suggested the organization
of a branch of the B.C. Chamber
of Mines, an idea which was enthusiastically accepted, a considerable number of his hearers immediately paying in their subscriptions for this purpose.
Professor J.M. Turnbull, head
of the faculty of mining, University of British Columbia, gave
��ut a number of ideas to be applied in prospecting. He advised
against trying to get too great a
depth on a vein by driving long
crosscut tunnels; also the first
thing that should be done after
finding a vein should be to prospect along it, with a view to locating if possible some peculiarly, such as a dyke, or change
of strike, and go to work there.
He also advised all prospectors
to ship ore whenever possible^

HOW ABOUT IT, MR. MANSON?
WHEN the public voted for the beer
bars, they did so with the full conviction
that they would be run and regulated in a
manner that would be an improvement on
past systems, and in no way a public nuisance. We approve of the beer bar idea,
and of course recognize that it is only an
experiment, which if not satisfactory to
the whole publio, will be changed.
Certain it is that the manner of the
conduct of one certain beer parlor in Stewart is such that a number of people who
voted in favor of beer bars, will at the first
opportunity vote against them.
This is only to be expected. Why
should a whole neighborhood in any community experience a great deal of annoyance and personal inconvenience because
they were good enough to allow one man
and his organization to sell beer?
HOW ABOUT IT, MR. MANSON,
in your high position as Attorney General,
with your expensive Police Administration? How long is a condition to be allowed to exist in Stewart that causes such*
annoyance to women that they have lo

FOUNDATION  OF B. C. PROSPERITY
(Petroleum & Mines Journal of Canada)
THE financial stability and prosperity
of a country is measured in terms of its
annual production.   -
The foundation of Australian prosperity is wheat and wool; of New Zealand
frozen mutton and butter; of tV.e Canadian
Prairies wheat; of the Old Country its
looms and factories.   What does British
Columbia rest upon?   Not wheat, or wool,
or butter, nor yet its looms and factories!
And yet it is proclaimed as the weath-
iest Province in this great Dominion.   Is
it in the fisheries?   They are doubtless important, but insufficient.   Is it in the forests?   British Columbia is hailed as the
world's last great reserve, but what is our
annual export?     It is insufficient.     The
timber industry is not enjoying the output
into the world's markets that  the  claim
has a right to expect.   Is it her minerals?
Well if this Province ever expects to float
on a sea of prosperity, the annual output
of gold, silver, iron, copper, platinum and
many minerals will have to be larger than
it is at present.   The recent development
of the Northern silver lodes and the sensational outputs from certain mines, was
never dreamed ef a few years ago and reiterates again and again that  the  vaults
of this sea of mountains know no limit of
wealth.   The Cariboo and Yukon placer
deposits, which yielded millions may be
duplicated again and ; gain.   The Britannia copper mines are an incident in copper
deposits.   The black sands of a thousand
valleys are proved to  contain   platinum
and gold, and the industry has  not  yet
been born.    British Columbia   needs  a
breed of men with money, courage, vision
and virility; a breed of men who are brave
to achieve, not those whose sacred dollars
are safely housed ia Municipal or Victory
bonds while they play "Mid waste valuable
time at the 19th hole.
Fishing, timber and minerals are the
potential foundations of a permanent and
solid prosperity here, and prosperity is not
going to be achieved until a united front
is presented to all the difficulties which lie
ahead. No quarter should be shown to
either 19th hole men or 19 hole capital.
The issue is nationally serious and every
body should be raised to a sense cf national duty and the sense of national effort
if British Colombia is to be the domain of
a happy and prosperous people.

DUTHIE MINE

Repairs to the   plant   at   the

more men have   been   added   to
the working force until now there I 	
are 31 men on the payroll, says'
the Interior News. Active min- j
ing has been under way for over'
a week and a carload of ore is \
now awaiting transportation j
down the hill to Smithers as thei
shipping point to the smelter.
The contract for hauling  ore I
and supplies has   been   awarded j
to Ed Eby, of the Smithers Exchange, and for this work a large j
Graham truck arrived today and!
will be put into commission  immediately, working two or  even
three shifts to catch up with the
work.    The road to the mine  is
in very good condition with   the
exception of a few   holes   which
are to be filled.
Although a considerable quantity of new pipe was brought in
by Mr Turner when he returned
to the mine, more pipe had been
broken during the winter than
was anticipated a>��d a delay was
the consequence. Everything is
now ship-shape however, and
mining and development operations are to be carried on simultaneously at the Henderson property, on which work is to be
concentrated.

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H.W.M.RoIaton & Co)
Summer holidays being in full
swing, all the stock markets are
duiet, with very little trading.
Information from the outside
tends to show that Vancouver
people are taking more interest
in local properties and this fall
a very active market is expected.
Marmot river section continues to be a public favorite, and
with continued good reports
from the Porter Idaho and also
that they intend to increase their
output on August 1, are causing
a big demand in all Marmot
river stocks, especially the above
mentioned stock, which is being
picked up rapidly by the more
conservative buyers.
