REAL PROSPECTORS NEEDED
James Cronin, a pioneer min
ng man of the Pacific N��rth-Jl
A recent issue of the Canadian Mining
Journal has the following logical comment
on present-day needs:
"Vast unexplored territory���enormous
undeveloped mineral resources ��� ground
scarcely scratched." Phrases like these
are the vogue these days, when speaking
of the mineral areas of northern Canada.
The terms can, no doubt, be applied literally, to certain parts of our northern territory, and, we are confident, the northern
mineral area as a whole will measure up to
the picture drawn. But one must beware
of a misapplication of the idea, as can
easily happen, for instance, in the case of
Ontario, where for almost two decades,
throughout a large part of the north, the
most effective body of prospectors in Canada have been doing their level best to
pick up whatever nature has left in view
at the surface, and have in many cases
conducted the next stage in the search by
means of pick and shovel.   The case of
Quebec is different. There only a tiny cor
nerof the province,  lying south of the] mineral industry of the future
What we wish to dwell upon today is
the problem of getting the scratching
done. There is only a ridiculously small
number of men actually engaged in the|
scratching for minerals. Many scratch
their heads instead of the rocks, not knowing how to tackle the genuine pioneer
work. "You scratch my back and I'll
scratch yours," is the motto of another
faction of pseudo-prospectors, who make
their living peddling claims, usually in
league with stock-jobbers in the cities. A
small residuum does actually ferret round
among the rocks, systematically and with
knowledge of what they seek and of how
to conduct the search. Upon this handful
of faithful workers depends essentially the
discovery of new mineral deposits and their
initial development, and consequently the
growth of our mining industry.
Of course there are the occasional accidental discoveries, but the veins of minerals so found are few compared with those
discovered by the prospector; so one must
depend essentially upon scratching to
make new mines. Time has shown that
"scouting" for new mines is ene of the
surest ways for a company to waste money,
the main reason being that this method
does not involve sufficient scratching.
Our mineral areas are as yet scarcely
scratched. The men that do the scratching have no easy life, and they do not always have the reward of success. Let us
not forget that it is only a continuance of
this same scratching, whether it is done
by untutored *woodsmen or by highly
trained technical specialists, that will
bring to earth our dream of Canada's great
Bonanza, ahout thirty miles from
Telkwa. Deceased was seventy-
two years of age and was known

British Columbia is occupying
a place that is of increasing im
portance in the manufacturing
industry of the Dominion. Her
factories are not only becoming
more numerous every year, but
existing plants are incress ng
their output all the time, due to
greater demand both at home and
[abroad for British Columbia products. The outstanding mik condensary in the province is that of
the Borden Company, Limited,
at South Sumas. Famous far beyond the limits of British Columbia, the wonderful milk from the
Chilliwack district in the Fraser
River valley is here put up in
sanitary tins and is marketed
through the Borden sales organization with headquarters in Vancouver. Borden's St. Charles
Milk, as it is known in the familiar blue and white can with the
gold cow on it, is noted for its
richness and is more and more
being used by housewives on the
Coast "wherever the recipe calls
for milk." Orders already on
file will call for the operation of
the South Sumas condensary at
full capacity from March 1st
right on.

The positive statements in regard to the installation of a hydroelectric plant in this vicinity are
hardly warranted, although being widely circulated. It is true
that investigations have been going forward satisfactorily and reports have been made accordingly, but as "Rome was not built in
a day," neither are such projects
carried to a successful termination so hurriedly.
The plan under consideration

of Soule River,  better known as

Alaskan side. Investigation reveals two feasible sites for dams
on this river. The first one is
only some two thousand feet
from the mouth and would giye
a fall of two hundred and fifty
feet. The second site is about
three miles up stream but in some
respects is preferable. Here the
water comes through  a rarrovv
tive during the summer. The
Marmot has some mining properties which were the first in the
district to ship ore profitably, and
it is expected that Marmot River
stocks will be in great demand.

channel cut through what might! i  j*
be called a "reef," above which
is a valley or old lake bed some
four miles in length, with a five
hundred foot drop between the
reef and the mouth of the river.
It can be readily seen that this
would provide for an almost unlimited head of water, especially
when it is noted that this second
site i3 below the forks of the
river and the two branches are
thought to be approximately ten
and fifteen miles in length.
One of the chief objects of the
last investigation was to ascei-
tain if the volume of water would
bi sufficient during the driest
period of the year, which would
likely be during December, January and February. The investigating party was quite satisfied
on this point.
Reports have been forwarded
only during the last month to the
Eastern interests which have the
project under consideration, but
it is too soon to expect a reply or
any definite action. We will be
i pleased to advise our readers as
! soon as there is anything further
available for publication.
