DOLLY VARDEN   IDEAL PENDING
WILL OPERATE
The Dolly Varden mine, fam.
ous in its day for production of
native silver to the extent of several million ounces, responsible
for the construction of a railway
from Alice Arm to the property,
and the subject of so-called scan-
dala in which the B. C. Government was involved, is again to be
opened up and operated.
Ool. Victor Spencer, who has
been interested in the Dolly Varden for some time, has secured a
lease and bond from Geo. Wing-
field, who now holds control, and
with his associates, will thoroughly diamond drill the property, as well as carrying on development work where it was shut
down, inopportunily, as those
who know the property say. by
the former owners.
Reports have been published
in the south that the "Dolly is
dug out." These reports are believed to have come from parties
who are not interested in the development of the mining intei*
ests of B. C. but in stock manipulation.
O'REILLY GOES
TOCASSIAR
R. J. O'Reilly, placer expert
for the Standard Mines Corporation, who has been at Big Missouri all winter, left for the south
yesterday preparatory to preceding north to reopen development
operations of which he was in
charge last season on about three
miles of placer leases that his
company has acquired from C. J.
Leeds on McDames creek, a trib
utary of the Dease river, below
the lake of that name. Last
season Mr O'Reilly took in the
lirst keystone drill ever taken
into that district, for use this
season in thoroughly testing out
the ground, which is located on
benches that were at one time
the old creek bed. It is the intention of his company to spend
the summer on intensified development and exploration, in an
endeavor to prove up the true
merits of the property, and if
this results as good as is anticipated, a large development program will be undertaken, that
will call for the eonstruction of
one mile of flume and four miles
of ditch.
ON MAYFLOWER
H. P. Gibson returned from
Vancouver yesterday, where he
completed a deal for his Mayflower group of five claims, the
Tyee, belonging to Jas. McKay
and Chas. Bibeau. and the Shamrock group of four claims, owned
by himself. Mrs Gibson and J.V.
Clegg, making a total of ten
claims adjoining the Dunwell on
the north and the Victoria on the
west, about six miles from Stewart, on the main Bear river road.
This property is one of the most
accessible in the district, and the
parties taking it over are expected to arrive in Stewart in the
near future, when a statement
will be available as to plans for
its development.

Pen.   Reward.   News Office.
A. Lincke, who is in charge of
operations of the North Country
Mining Company's Gloria group
on Bulldog creek, was in town
yesterday and reports very satisfactory progress having been
made through the winter, some
400 feet of tunnel having been
driven. An asasy plant was recently back-packed in to the property, and now he is taking in
six tons of supplies by the same
method.
The present trail starts at the
foot of the mountain below Bulldog creek and climbs over it at
an elevation of 3200 feet, then
down the other side and across a
valley and up the other side 'i000
feet, making a total distance of
about five miles.
Mr Lincke reports results that
warrant the installation of heavier equipment. To take this in
a horse trail is required, for
which he has located a good
route, starting from the mouth
of Marmot river and working
around the hill into Bulldog valley, then up this to the property,
making a distance of about five
miles.
SCHEDULE FOR
NATIONAL SILVER
G. R. Bancroft. \ ..o arrived
from the south in the interests
of the Sebakwe and District
Mines, is making arrangements,
preparatory to the opening up of
a development program on the
Bush property, recently acquired
from the National Silver Mines.
The Sebakwe is a Rhodesian
company, with head offices in
London, and has assets in South
Africa and elsewhere. This, the
second entry into this district, of
English and South African mining interests not only speaks well
for the attention that this district is attracting, but should also have a very great stimulating
effect upon the mining industry
of the north, as it undoubtedly
foreshadows much greater development and the entrance into
this distict of other large mining
interests, with ample capital for
development which, as a result
of the immense amount of preliminary development done during the past few vears, shouid
\have little difficulty in finding
j attractive propositions.
Dunwell Crew Help Hospital
The Stewart Hospital Board
reports that they are in receipt
of a donation from the boys at
the Dunwell mine amounting to
$31, being a contribution of $1
each from 31 employees. This
collection was made at the time
the dog contest was taking place
the donors preferring to make a
direct gift in preference to favoring any particular dogs with
their support.
At the Stewart picture show
Saturday night will be exhibited
a film entitled "Twenty Years of
Progress," depicting the evolution of the Ford car, for which
C.M.Adam is now local agent.
A son was born to Mr and Mrs
R.T.Crosby in Prince Rupert at
3 p.m., March 20.
Ernie Profit returned from the
south this week.
NATIVE SONS MEET
NOMINATE OFFICERS
The Stewart Assembly of the
Native Sons or Canada, at their
bi-monthly meeting held in the
Moose Hall Wednesday evening,
nomination of officers was held,
to be voted on April 14. Those
nominated were as follows: For
president, H. Scovil; 1st vice president, Godfrey Smith; 2nd vice
president, H.W.M.Rolston; treasurer, D. McLean and R. W.
Kennedy; secretary, L.M.Gordon
chaplain, Sid Fraser; sergt. at
arms, Sam Wickwire; inside
guard, J. Comer; outside guard,
Kenny McKay.
Investigating Timber
E.T.Calvert, Provincial Forest
Ranger, arrived from Prince Rupert Monday night and will
spend some little time in the district investigating the amount of
timber cut by operating companies. It appears that the Act requires the payment of atumpage
for timber cut by any mining operation after it has passed a prospect stage.
MONA BONDED
IN VANCOUVER
Bob McCombe and Joe McDonald have bonded to Vancouver
interests their Mona group of
four claims, which is situated between the Forty Nine and the
Northland Mining Co. property
near the head of Salmon river.
This property was located in
1922 by Bob McCombe, and is
traversed by a large mineral zone
containing several very promising showings, from which good
assays have been obtained.
While very little detail is as yet
available, it is known that the
bond holders contemplate an aggressive development program
as early this spring as possilile.
Billy Is Decorated
"Billy," winner of the Popular Dog Contest, held here recently in aid of the hospital, is
now wearing his prize, a smart
brass-studded collar, engraved
with his name and that of his
owner, Mrs H. P. Gibson, the
number of votes he received and
the meaning of them. He seems
to be pleased with the extra attention received as the result of
his new possession.

EMPEROR IS TO
SPEEDJJP WORK
The local management of the
Emperor Mines received instructions this week to prepare for an
immediate acceleration of development, for which the initial
steps will include the construction of a new blacksmith shop
and new dining room.
Underground work will consist of drifting en the veins al-
reaay opened up at depth, and
diamond drilling thc property.
Gustav Seiffert, the managing
director, who has been in New
York most of the winter, expects to return very shortly to
again take personal charge.
VALUED MAN AT
PREMIER DIES
The death of Christian Emill
Lindgaard from double pneumonia occurred Sunday afternoon
at the Premier hospital. Deceased was born 38 years ago in Denmark and was at one time a
rancher in Terrace. He had been
employed at Premier for several
years and is survived by his wife
and a nine-year old son, who reside in Hyder.
The funeral took place Thursday in Hyder under the auspices
of the Moose Lodge, from Pio-
i neer Hall.
FUN GIVEN BY
THE MINSTRELS
One of the most enjeyable entertainments ever seen in Stewart was the Minstrel Show given
by the United Services Club this
week. Costumed as Pierrots,
the "Colored Gentlemen," under
the able management of Billy
Orr and Harry Hooton, gave a
lively program of songs, dances
and dialogues, and various allusions to local celebrities and places brought down the house.
The players were well supported
by an orchestra of four members, Mrs G. C. Andrew, J. P.
Scarlett, L. M. Gordon and Joe
Cullen. H.D.Rochfort, as interlocutor, handled the situation
like a professional. The Misses
Muriel and Helen Crawford act-
as ushers "as to the manner
born."
The whole performance and
the dance that followed it were
full of merriment, and it is to be
hoped that the Minstrels will
give another demonstration of
their talents in the near future.
The program follows:

"Yes Sir, She's My Baby."

PROTECTION OF SHAREHOLDERS
THE provincial department of mines
protects the investor in mining stock by
making companies adhere closely to the
truth in prospectuses. That protection is
good, but it applies only to the company
as it is getting into operation. After the
company is in operation, the directors are
then responsible to the shareholders. It
might be well if some method could be devised to assure the shareholders that the
obligations assumed by directors would be
fulfilled.
Mining companies usually select with
care the men who shall act as their directors. This is done that the publie may be
guaranteed that the interests of the shareholders will be fairly considered and that
the interests of the company will be safeguarded. If circumstances arise where a
director or board of directors cannot faithfully fulfil the duties assumed, resignation
should follow, otherwise a false position
is being occupied.
The Surf Inlet Gold Mining Co. might
be taken as an example. It is a local mining company of prominence, one that was
promoted and developed by people of Vancouver. Its operations were successful.
The property was finally sold to an American operating company, the local concern
receiving cash and a one-fifth interest in
shares in the new company. The cash received was disbursed at once as a dividend
to the shareholders of the Surf Inlet Co.,
after which the share interest in the operating company became its sole asset.
The directors of the Surf Inlet Company are all leading business and professional men of Vancouver, and an investor

in shares of this company would have reason to believe that his interests would be
properly safeguarded. Relying on the
strength of the personnel of the board,
men and women of Vancouver bought
stock, paying as high as 60 cents per share
for it.
What has happened in connection with
this company, as viewed from the standpoint of an investor?
Soon after the new company began
operations, profits were made and dividends disbursed, much to the satisfaction
of the public and the shareholders, and,
as a result, the stock was freely dealt with
on the local market. The price went
up to 60 cents per share. Then, without
warning, reports circulated that the "mine
was looking badly," "no ore on the lower
levels," and the stock went down in price
until it was quoted at five or six cents.
These reports were accepted as true by directors of the Surf Inlet Company, and
were given out to the shareholders.
The Surf Inlet Company selected one
of its board, who may at any time examine the mine in the interest of the Surf
Inlet shareholders. The contract with the
operating company gives him the fullest
privileges in respect to giving information necessary for the protection of the
share interest. E. A. Cleveland was appointed to this position, and today represents the Surf Inlet Company on the board
ofthe operating company.
At an annual meeting of the shareholders of the Surf inlet Company held
three years ago, Mr Cleveland made the
statement that there was no ore above the
1000-foot level, and very little developed
on the 1100-foot level, which was then the lowest.
The public believed, with the very best reason,
that the bottom had dropped out of the mine, and
dumped their stock, and proceeded to forget it.
In the interval since that time, two statements appeared repeatedly in the Vancouver
newspapers, namely, "the Surf Inlet Mining Co.
Has Paid a Dividend," and, also, "the Surf Inlet
Mine is Dug Out." The constant publication of
these contradictions produced a unique condition
in the local stock market. Surf Inlet stock sold
last year at from five to six cents, yet the 1925 net
profits of the operating company totalled $396,000,
of which Surf Inlet's share would one-fifth, or
$79,200, or over 100 per cent on the market price
of the stock. Ordinarily, stock paying six cents
dividend in one year would sell on the market for
from 40 to 50 cents, yet Surf Inlet stock could not
j rise in view of the publication from week to week
that the only ore being mined
was the pillars, which were being taken out preparatory to
closing the mine. These pillars
have been mined for three years
and must have been immense affairs, for it is three years since
it was announced that the mine
was through.
In view of this situation, extending over a considerable and
continuous time, is not the question pertinent, what has been
done by the directors of the Surf
Inlet Company to fulfil their obligations to their shareholders?
The operating company accorded
[the fullest priyilege to enter the
mine at any time and secure information respecting the undder-
ground workings. Was the holder of Surf Inlet stock ever informed of the true situation?
Were steps ever taken tox ascertain if the   mine contained  ore

Rich Native Silver Ore
Paddy Higgins, owner of the
Babine Silver King property,
was a visitor in Smithers the first
of the week and reports good progress on his mine. He is in fairly hard rock but is overcoming
that obstacle. The drift tunnels
are being continued with good
ore all the way. He crosscut the
vein 14 feet to the hanging wall
and broke into some rich looking
native silver ore. Paddy has
high hopes now that he will be a
regular shipper this year.���Omineca Herald.

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
The    whole    market  showed
steady increase in price,   especially in the case  of B. C. Silver
and Dunwell.   Both these stocks
in the  past  few   months  have
steadily risen in price,  and  are
always in good demand, even at
the higer prices.   As both these
properties have considerable development work  they  are   well
demonstrating   that  there  are
are more than one big dividend
payers  in   the  Portland  Canal
District, and   the stock-buying
public are taking more notice  of
properties in the early stages  of
development,    noticeably   those
under strong directorates,   capable  managements  and  mineral
showings worthy of having money spent on them.   It has been
very noticeable during the  past
week, and ever-increasing  sales
are being made in the less   publicly known stocks.
During the latter part of last
week Indian came into heavy demand to which the stock quickly
acted. This also made the iarge
shareholders very skeptical of
selling. The cause of this untoward demand appears to have
arisen from a very popular rumor
that Premier interests have taken control ef the Indian property. Once or twice these rumors
have started, but with the amount of stock changing hands
this time one is led to believe
that there must be some truth in
it; though at the time of going
to press nothing authentic has
been made public. It is well
known that the Indian is a mine
in the making, and has some
large ore reserves; it is also said
that the Indian ore lends itself
very readily to milling and smelter treatment. Taking note of
all the facts in the Indian case, a
much higher level for the stock
may be readily expected.
L&L dropped off a little in
price, but very few sales were
recorded.
Independence remained in demand, mostly from the American
side of the line, and as some engineers lookeci over this property
a few weeks ago, the conclusion
can be drawn that they intend to
help finance the operations.
The arrival of the engineers in
town to start work on the National Silver, brought this stock
very much into the public no
tice; also the fact the first issue
of Sebakwe stock has arrived for
distribution among the National
Silver shareholders will doubtless put this stock to a mnch
higher level.
Porter Idaho reniained inactive on the local market, wilh
very few inquiries coming in
from the outside. People interested in Porter Idaho are waiting for publicity of the program
of summer operations. It is reported that considerable road
work will be done on the Marmot
River section this summer. This
should help the Marmot River
properties.
