PROTECTING THE PUBLIC
WE ARE fully in Accord with the
views expressed by the Canadian Mining
Journal, which editorially says in part
as follows:
"The action of the Provincial Government of British Colnmbia in imposing
a fine on a concern entitling itself the
Platinum Gold Mines, for non-observance
of the provisions of the Mineral Survey
and Development Act, is to be commended
heartily, and the fact deserves the greatest possible publicity. It is of small use
to collect a fine of $900 or $1000 unless
the public, in whose interests the action
is taken, has the opportunity to see, and
is made to realize, its full significance."
Under sections 16 and 17 of the Act
above referred to, a company is required
to submit its prospectus for endorsation
of the Government Resident Mining Engineer in the district in which the company
proposes to operate, in order that he may
check up the statements therein made,
and pass on their authenticity. While it
fs realized that it is impossible for him to
say definitely exactly what will be found
underground on the property, yet he is able
to verify or otherwise the salient features
of the undertaking, particularly as to its
location, extent of surface showings and
their values.
In this manner the Government has
protected the public as far as it is humanly
possible for it to do so. The rest is up to
the public themselves. They have te do
their part if the fullest possible protection
is to be given.
It is an extraordinary thing about
mining, that the average man seldom
thinks for one moment of applying even
the most rudimentary principles of business before investing in a mining undertaking; for instance, be seldom if ever
inquires as tc to the organization of the
company, its management, or transportation possibilities, neither does he ascertain how much of the money which he is
investing goes into actual development.
The Department of Mines of this Province is doing its utmost to protect the
public from unscrupulous mining promoters, but this is not sufficient protection.
No laws can protect a man from his own
foolishness. The public must learn to
carry some of the burden, and the sooner
they do so, the sooner will the pure stock-
selling promotions be eliminated.
To every reader of the Portland Canal
News we would say, remember the following points, and when approached to buy
stock, apply them. Investigate the organization of the company; if you are not in a
position to do this for yourself, get advice
on this point from someone in whom you
have confidence. Second, investigate the
management���is it experienced and practical? Third, how much of your money
goes into actual development; to guide
you in this, the Hon. William Sloan, Minister of Mines, states that at least 70 per
cent of your money should go into actual
development. Fourth, what are the mineral showings, their values and possibilities. Fifth, what are the transportation
problems.

their properties with the adjoin-! __
ing group of  claims  owned   by I
the Dalhousie Mining Company, j
Limited, (non personal liability.) j
Each of these groups consisted i
of eight mineral claims, and both j
groups had good showings of ore. I
It was the opinion of all   parties >
concerned, however, that eeono-J
mies might be effected and much
better  value  obtained   for the |
work done, hy the amalgamation
of the two groups.   In this way
one good trail can  be  made to j
serve the entire   property,   and
management  and   development!
expenses   greatly    reduced   in
every respect.
Work is expected to start
shortly on an important lead on
the Dalhousie group which ultimately runs into and intersects
the principal showings on the
Rocks of Ages group.

ROY GETS RESULTS
Roy Clothier and   the  small
group of local investors who acquired the Revenge Silver Mines!
at Beaverdell a few months ago,
have struck very high grade ore!
in the workings, says   the  Victoria Colonist.   A body four and
a half feet in width has been encountered,   This yields  500  oz.
to the ton in silver.
f    Mr Clothier, who is  president
! and manager of the company  in
control, has been in the city for
la few days, but is returning to
the Beaverdell  camp.   Already
there has  been  about $20,000
! worth of ore taken out of these
! workings.
The Revenge group is close to
the Wallace Mountain Mines and
the Bell Mines, which have made
j excellent  showings.   The     Re-
i venge for years has been chang-
I ing hands repeatedly, the succes-
[sive operators endevoring to locate ore bodies similar to  those
in the Wallace Mountain Mine.
Shortly after Mr Clothier toek
charge he located the body  now
being worked with such gratifying results.   The location of the
property is also a very important
feature, as it is alongside a good
road and a short way  from   the
railway.

YOU WANT STEWART TO GROW
Then pay heed  to the following.
You don't plant oats upon a hill
A hundred miles away,
And somewhere else your corn to drill
You know would never pay.
You plant at home to get the yield
Whatever crops are grown,
For planting in some other field
Will never help your own.
I And it's tha same with dollars,
For dollars too are seeds,
The cash today you send away
Tomorrow you will need.
Don't send your cash afar to roam
But, wiser, learn to sow,
Just plant your dollars here at home,
And watch your dollars grow.

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
During the week the market
remained weak in all stocks except on properties shipping and
those about to ship. L&L Glacier remained in good demand at
enhanced prices caused by a rumor that negotiations for a sale
were pending. Porter Idaho is
in big demand, and as soon as
the cheap unit stock has been
picked up a much higher level is
expected. Though work started
only five weeks ago on Marmot
Metals, the very satisfactory reports from the mine have caused
a big demand for this stock. No
very great activity in Bear river
stocks will take place until something happens in the Dunwe.l
deal. By general appearances
the general public want to get
into shipping mines and the ones
about to ship held their prices.
