HAVE CONFIDENCE IN MINING
SUSPICION of mining, fostered by
the fanatic dervishes who started the blue-
sky oraze, is beginning to diminish in
other business circles.
Money is pouring into the mining industry from outside channels. The old
game is getting back on its feet. Organizations and publications that led in the
assault against the mining business are
beginning to repent and change their tune.
Now and then a great newspaper departs from its recent course and begins to
feature mining as a news subject and favor it editorially.
Few of the exclusively business papers,
as yet, pay the attention to mining that
its importance to the world deserves. The
New York Journal of Commerce, the New
York Commercial, the Chicago Journal of
Commerce, the similar papers in Portland
and San Francisco, are pitifully incomplete in this particular. The Seattle Journal of Commerce is beginning to carry
mining news.
Washington state newspapers, which
supported the blue-sky advocates when the
epidemic broke out, are mostly on the
other side now���with the exception of the
Seattle Times and P.-I.
Recently the New York Herald-Tribune, one of the most conservative dailies
in the East, created considerable chagrin
among certain investment brokers by publishing the following opinion:
"One of the things that investment bankers
have had to admit is that the gold and silver dividends of ths United States during ihe past two
years are greater than the combined dividends of
all tht banking institutions of this country, and
on the head of that the government figures show
that the average returns on capital invested by
banking interests was about 61 per cent, while
the return on mining was 182 per cent, and Dun
and Bradstreet show that only 32 per cent of min*'
ing investments fail, against 54 per cent failure
in other lines of business." j He tried te cross a railway track
The impression is rapidly iP!Ni^j^^^,^l^[fitJ^il
that the whole blue-sky hysteria was cunningly devised by a group of New York
and Chicago financial houses to get con
trol of a greater share of the investing
public's savings.
The series of bank failures in the Middle West und mountain states, brought
about by bad investments in farm paper,
has done a great deal to prove to the public that losses are possible in any business
Farming is dependant on the caprices
of wind, water and winter. No cyclone
ever blew an ore body out of the ground.
Railroads are failing now and then,
due to ship or motorbus competition.
There is competition among mines, but no
substitute for minerals.
Public utility corporations are finding
it increasingly difficult to pay dividends
because of the growth of rate regulation,
and demands for public ownership. There
is no serious movement for nationalization
of minerals.
The great industrial corporations,
whose shares are attracting public attention, are practically without exception
heavy users of mine products; they cannot
grow and prosper without adding to the
demand for the stores ef nature's warehouses.
Mining is not today���and never was���
a piker's game. But as a substantial business proposition, a producing mine, with
any considerable ere body, is a more desirable property to own than a railroad, a
farm, a commission-bossed power or gas
plant, and many a factory.���Mining

As well as being good workers and enter,
prising, the Indians of the Babine mountain district, central British Columbia, are of a decidedly
independent nature. Recently they decided that
a graded road from their mountain village to
Telkwa. on the Grand Trunk railway, a distance
of approximately 15 miles, would be more in keeping with present day requirement than the old
pack trail blazed by their ancestors many generations ago. They approached officials at Smithers
regarding the project, and when the question of
the cost of the undertaking presented itself and
possible delays before a decision could be reached
were suggested, they immediately put up the proposition that if they were furnished with tools
and construction supplies, they would build the
road themselves, providing all horse power and
manual labor free of charge.

Local Stocks
The continued slump in Victoria Mines caused heavy buying
in this stock and enhanced p'ces
in this stock are looked for.
Lakeview reacted heavily selling as low as 35c. In Vancouver,
this cheap stock being quickly
taken up. Dunwell slackened
off a few points with little demand. This stock is classed
as more of an investment than a
speculation, though it is expected to become very active when
the management make known
that the deal pending is closed.
Glacier Creek remains dull,
with very little trading. Indian
is in good demand and prices are
steadily increasing; it is looked
upon as a good stock for advancement this summer; the fact that
the management have announced
that they intend shipping has
caused big trading.
The most pronounced feature
of the week was the reception
of Marmot Metals (The Montana
Group) by the public. This issue was away over-subscribed,
with a steady demand at enhanced prices. The shipping of
ore last year by Porter Idaho and
prospects of Marmot Metals shipping this year are drawing at-
tentien in general to the Marmot
river section.
