THE WRONG SORT  OF PUBLICITY
THE SEATTLE Mining News Club
organized recently by a group of mining
engineers and others interested in the
mining industry has grown rapidly. Its
membership is made up cf men who regard mining as a legitimate industry and
as a clean and honorable business, entitled
to the active support rather than the antagonism of the press of the Northwest.
With this end in view a committee was
appointed to wait on the local dailies urging adequate publicity for the activities of
the new organization which we understand
was promised, and which has been forthcoming but not in a manner calculated to
be of great value to the industry.
Realizing the harm done legitimate
mining projects by fake stock sales, the
mining club has appointed a committee
for investigating stock selling campaigns
Which bear the ear marks of illigitimate
business and attempting to stop such operations where proven fakes. This is valuable and commendable work if properly
conducted. The rub comes in the fact that
not a single story has appeared in Seattle
papers regarding the work of the club that
has not carried a scare head on "fake
mines," "fraudulent stock selling schemes"
and the like. One outfit which was a flagrant fraud and which was closed through

aided in the dailies as having sold thousands of dollars worth of stock. They hap
pened to be located where they came under
our more or less close observation and we
doubt if they sold a hundred dollars worth
of stock. But it made a good morsel of
sensationalism and aided materially in increasing the mistrust of mining in thc
public mind.
Not a line has been run concerning
the recent $400,000 dividend of the Premier or the annual statement of the Ken-
necott Copper Corporation showing an
$8,000,000 profit, nor of the numerous promising properties of the Portland Canal
district now being developed. Not a line
of constructive publicity calculated to aid
mining development has so far appeared
in any of the Seattle papers. The net publicity result to date ef the sincere effort
to be helpful, which the Mining Club has
put forth, has been to gain for the industry some very unfavorable publicity,
through no fault of the Club.
We believe that the entirely laudable
objective of putting fake stock selling concerns out of business may be accomplished
without this publicity.
The Seattle Mining Men's Club was
not formally organized until this week.
The objects of the club are extremely worth
while. We do not wish to be understood
as criticising their efforts to stamp out illegitimate mining promotion; but we do
object to the Seattle newspapers using the
new club as a medium through which to
advertise fraudulent promotions while remaining silent on constructive mining
news.
Investigation of mining securities offered the public should be quietly conduct
ed and action as quietly taken, where action seems advisable and possible.
The names of the exective committee of the
Club are among the best in Northwest mining
circles and with intelligent and sincere support
on the part of Northwest newspapers, this organization can be rendered one of the most valuable
agencies on the Pacific Coast in
developing the industry which
built Seattle and has more to offer at the present time than any
tt I er rermining nsouice.��� A!-

The samples have been sent out

Wm. McFarlane has taken in
supplies and is driving a tunnel
on the ore vein which is already
in eight feet.
The Homeguard is one of the
properties of the Alice Arm district from which big things are
expected. Previous development
work has proved up a big tonnage of copper ore, chiefly in the
form of gigantic boulders. Ore
was discovered in place last fall,
and this new strike of ore in
place is considered of considerable importance.

A short term option has been
reeently taken on the Cronin
mine by a New York syndicate
and enquiries have reached Smithers this week as to the conditions on the trail and at the property for making an examination
of the mine. The option expires
on July 1. A reply made to the
enquiry reports against a trip
into the Babines in the immediate future owing to the late sea-
Dii and very deep snow which
will cover up most of the important surface showings and formations. It has been recommed-
ded that the trip be made about
June 15. by which time it is expected the snow will have disappeared to allow of an examination in a manner doing jnstice to
the property.���Interior Newi.

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
By the general appearance the
slump of the past few weeks is
over. Practically all local stocks
are showing special reaction, the
most noted being L&L Glacier
Creek which is in heavy demand
with steadily increasiug prices,
and a much higher level is looked
for. Continued demand for the
10 cent issue of Marmot Metals
is having the effect of enhancing
this stock. Public feeling is very
strongly in favor of the Marmot
river section; operations having
commenced at the Porter Idaho
have caused a big demand for
Porter Idahe steck, and nearly
all the cheap profit-taking stock
has been taken up. On the mine
starting its regular summer shipments much higher prices are
promised.
B.C. Silver continues on its
upward trend and is becoming
to be considered more of an investment than a speculation. By
appearance all Bear River stocks
will remain sluggish until some
definite news is made public as
to the Dunwell sale. Glacier remains inactive with very little
bidding, and on the rise of a few
points numerous blocks are offered on the market. As the
Lakeview tunnel proceeds the
demand for this stock increases.
Lakeview has always been very
tightly held, with very little
open trading.
Local stocks closed as follows:
