against the Coastwise Steamship
Company. The question involved the liability of the steamship
company for the loss of the cargo

$17,500.
The trial judge held that the
loss was due to perils at sea and
this view was upheld by the B.C.
Court of Appeal.
In a way, this dispatch is incorrect' The insurance company, and not the Premier Co., has
fought the case through the
courts. The Premier was paid

BUSINESS IN MINING
MINING and METALLURGY, the
monthly bulletin of the American Institute
of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers,
has an excellent editorial on the business
of mining which brokers and the investing public would do well to ponder over if
they expect to get satisfactory results from
the expenditure of their energy, time and
money, says Mining and Engineering Record. The following quotations from the
article give the essence of the argument:
"Mining is a business. It has been
the foundation of the world's wealth from
the beginning of time. Of late years mining has become more of a business and
less of a romantic gamble exchanging its
glamor for a large measure of common
sense, especially that of the organized kind
which is science.
"Unfortunately people who live in
places remote from mines have only a
Hollywood education in mining. If one-
tenth of the money that has been raised
by unscrupulous and ambitious, ill-advised
promoters, taking advantage of the Hollywood education to sell stock on impossible financial plans, to promote prospects
for both incompetent management and
incompetent financing. Stockholders go
in i-hi wild promises and refuse te go on
when it takes longer to make a mine than
their moving picture education leads them
to believe.
"It should be strongly emphasized
that a mining prospect should be carefully
selected by a competent engineer, financed
for development by a reliable promoter
and given competent intelligent management, after which it may go to the public
and the banker for money to carry on its
business with equal prospects as compared
with a manufacturing business.
"I want to say to the bankers and
brokers: 'Know your engineer.' In eastern and European financial centres there
is a decided movement toward employment
of independent consulting engineers to
assist bankers and brokers in arriving at
a true perspective of the propositions that
are put before them for underwriting and
financing. In selecting an engineer many
people overlook the obvious method of,
judging their man. There are thousands
of mining reports circulating, signed by
dishonest, incompetent men calling themselves mining engineers who have no
knowledge of or experience in the science
of mining geology or metallury.
"That an industry so basic in its character, so necessary to all other industries,
should decline so rapidly as has mining
during a period in which most other
indastries experienced marked progress
calls for the careful consideration of min-

MINAKI, THE BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY
THE Indian, with a natural
aptitude for conferring upon
places names which were appropriate to their setting, called
it "Mee-Naw-Kee, the Beautiful
Country." The white man who follows in his footsteps, but who enjoys the comforts of Minaki Inn,
the splendid hostelry operated by
the Canadian National Railways,
agrees with the Indian's name and
his estimate of beauty. For Minaki,
because of its beauty and charm of
simplicity, is drawing more and
more Canadian and American tourists to itself year by year.
Canada is famed for her beauty
spots, but none has sweeter charm
for the holiday-seeker than has
Minaki, situated on a green-clad
promontory jutting   out   into the
Winnipeg River. Natural beauty
of woodland, lake and river scenery
greet tbe eye the moment one
leaves the Continental Limited, the
all-steel train of the Canadian National Railways. Starting from
Minaki Inn, and at each turn of the
woodland trails, there is a new
vista of glorious greens, toned by
the blue of the Winnipeg River,
upon whose wavelets the sun plays
Beyond, with distance gradually
shading the colors to a bluish grey,
the visitor sees a panorama of timber-clad hills, which extend to the
very shores of Hudson Bay.
By day, Minaki presents to the
visitor a glorious succession of
blues, greysj and greens; in the
sunset hour it is a veritable dream;
at night, particularly with a moon
shining through the trees, there is a
new charm���the charm of resting
nature, when, the air laden with
the tang of spruce, one rests lazily
and hears the ripple of the Winnipeg River against the shores.
Minaki has charms for the holiday maker whether he or she seeks
bathing, boating or fishing or jast
simply healthful rest. Fish are plentiful, and Minaly is a place where
all the big ones do not get away;
extended water trips by canoe
or motor boat may be had at leisure and there are sandy beaches
for the bathers. In addition there
are tennis courts, golf course, dancing pavilion, and other attractions,
so that no matter what the visitor's tastes may be, there is something to appeal ai Minaki.    -

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
The steady demand for local
mining stocks continued through
the week. The fact that Premier is remaining longer than
usual at a low price after the
dividend is causing a lot of enquiries in reference to this stock
and it is expected the demand
will shortly force this stock up.
Porter Idaho remained inactive with little demand from outside points. It appears that as
soon as this stock reaches the
ten cent mark, large blocks of
this stock are offered the public.
Independence is in demand at
slightly increased prices.
A stock well worth investigating is Stewart Central, situated
on Bitter creek. This property
is expected to operate extensively this summer.
Indian showed a small advance
but declined under heavy selling
orderi,
Silver Crest remained steady
and in fair demand.
Glacier Creek showed some
activity. This stock is in heavy
demand around 10 to 11 cents;
its management and proximity
to the Dunwell make it look as
if higher prices are expected.
Marmot Metals is heavily enquired for and when the coming
summer program is announced
much higher prices are expected.
The market closed as   follows:
