Surveying Regulations
The following information has
been supplied by Dalby B. Morkill, P.L.S., for the benefit of
those who have to look for land
marks.
New regulations have been
issued by the Surveyor General
governing the survey of mineral
claims, the most important of
which, as affecting those who
have occasion to search for landmarks, or the owners of claims,
being the new manner of marking corners or angles of surveyed
claims.
The new rules call for placing
iron posts, besides the usual
wood posts, bearing trees and
rock mounds.
The wood post hereafter will
not be placed at the corner, but
at a convenient place near the
corner. The iron post will be
placed at the exact corner, standing six inches above the ground,
and the bearing trees or other
references will refer as usual to
the true corner.
Wood posts will, as usual, be
carved with the lot number, and
the name of the claim and corner
represented. The iron posts will
be stamped with steel dies, or
cut with a punch, and will bear
the lot number and corner markings.
In soft ground the iron post
will be a 30 in. length of angle
iron driven within 6 in. of the
tep. On rock the post wiil be
a 10 in. length of 1 in. square
iron sunk 4 in. in a drill hole and
split and wedged at the bottom.
The  regulations appiy   to  all

ENTERTAINMENT
Continuing the policy of last
year the United Services Club
had a lecture in their Club Hall
Friday evening, the lecturer being J.A.Mills, M. I. M. E., engineer in charge of development
of the American Mining & Milling Co. property on Fish creek.
Addressing some 60 to 70 people, a number of whom were
from Hyder, Mr Mills, while not
a professional lecturer, held his
audience in rapt attention for
close to two hours on the question of the destiny of the English speaking people. He pointed out times without number
scriptural prophesy that has been
fulfilled in the history of the
Angle Saxon people. Starting
from the very beginning he sup-j
ported his theme with historical
events, the Bible, the great pyramid of Cheops, current events,
both political and military.
As a result of this lecture there
have already been a number of
requests for Mr Mills to give a
lecture at an early date on the
Great Pyramid, which it is understood is being arranged.
TRAIL FEASIBLE
SAYS P. M'BRIDE
Hammond Hit Hard
E. F. Hammond, who left for
Vancouver on the Cardena, received a knock-out blow from
one of the truss rafters of his
cabin up Bitter creek during a
heavy wind storm one night last
week. Regaining consciousness
he found himself crawling on his
hands and knees outside,' and
imagined he had been struck by
lightning, until examination of
the cabin disclosed a tree across
the roof. He had been working
om the Hill-Olga group of mining claims and was occupying
the McNeil cabin.
Pat McBride, who with Homer
FiekJin left Stewart in the fall of
]924 for Telegraph Creek and
Dease Lake, traveling via Meziadin and Bowser lakes, returned
this week, his former partner
having returned last year.
In discussing the feasibility of
a trail from Stewart to Telegraph Creek, as advocated by
the Stewart Board of Trade, Mr
McBride said there should be no
difficulty experienced and that it
would prove of great benefit, not
only to Stewart, but also facilitate the development of the very
rich c��untry tributary to Telegraph Creek. In addition it
would open for prospecting and
[trapping, a very rich country
enroute.
He predicted that if such a
trail is built a lot of men will go
into the sections tributary to it,
prospecting in tbe summer and
trapping in winter, in addition
to which a number of men wouid
take up pre-emptions, there being a great deal of very splendid
land capable of growing anything, as demonstrated by several linemen on the Yukon telegraph trail.
Mr McBride apoke very enthusiastically of the intervening
country.

in this valuable institution, and assist in
making British Columbia, as a result of
a tremendous mining industry, tho happiest, most progressive and  prosperous

LODE TIN AT TRAIL
It is unfortunate that in the rush and
hurry of this life the vast majority of the
public never find the time to contemplate
from the proper perspective those elements
which have such a great bearing upon our
happiness, progress and prosperity, and
as a result credit is in too far an extent
witheld, when it should be unstintedly
given.
Such an instance is the B.C. Chamber
of Mines in Vancouver, and the men who
are responsible for its creation and present eminently successful operation.   Such
an organization was and is essential for
the furtherance of the mining industry of
this Province.   The officers, from President Frank Woodside and Secretary Henry
Browning to the most junior, are typical
of that high type of citizenship so necessary to the upbuilding of a new country.
In the face of great obstacles this small
group of men have persevered, early and
late, trouble and long hours proving only
an incentive te still greater initiative and
determination.     Encouraging the prospector, operator, and educating not only
the public but the school children and the
world at large, to the mineral possibilities
of this Province.
No history of the mining industry of
this Province will be complete without a
section devoted to the great work of these
men and the B.C. Chamber of Mines.
There is no other organization in this
Province that deserves greater  support
Not content with announcing sensational mining and smelting operations successes, the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co. of Canada has recently sprung another
surprise upon the people of this Province, with
the fact that the lead-zinc ores of the great Sullivan Mine also contain tin in commercial quantities, and that during 1925 their metallurgists successfully worked out a table concentrating process that enabled the company to "save this tin,
which oceurs as a cassiterite.   The production of
tin concentrates was incidental to other concentrations.   The recovery for the year amounted to
124 tons of concentrates containing 13,000 pounds
of tin" which is apparently being stored pending
the installation of the required equipment for its
reduction and refinement to a clean metallic state.
Aside from England the bulk of the world's
supply of tin is recovered from cretk and river
beds in the form of placer  or  what is  termed
stream tin.   Therefore this discovery of tin in a
lode mine is most uncommon, and shows the possibilities of mining in British Columbia.
The presence of lode tin in British Columbia
is of the utmost importance, and again demonstrates the necessity of the prospector and miner
adopting every possible measure to determine exactly what metals are contained in his ores. Assays are not sufficient. Every owner of a property that shows merit should have an analysis
made of the ore. Millions of dollars have been
lost to the miner by neglecting this important
procedure.
The importance of this discovery at Trail is
not confined by any means to the mining industry
of this Province, but to the entire manufacturing
and industrial life, and thereby affects every resident in every walk of life. For if copper, lead,
zinc tin and iron are produced in sufficient quantities, and the first three are, the day should not
be far distant when British Columbia will be self
sustaining.

NEW BUSTING
REGULATIONS
Regulations designed to provide still greater measure of protection for workmen in the metalliferous mines of the province,
have just been approved and promulgated by Hon.   Wm.   Sloan,
Minister of Mines.    These new
regulations cover every phase of
the storing, handling, and use of
i explosives in the metal mines of
; British   Columbia.      Hereafter
i none but properly qualified men
' holding certificates will be  permitted to handle powder and eon-
\ duct blasting operations.
Under the new regulations  it
is provided that every man han-
jdling explosives  must  undergo
| an examination by a mine inspec-
i tor, and hold a certificate  from
I that official indicating that he is
possessed of the necessary qualifications. Provisional certificates
may be issued by the superintendent of the mine for a period not
exceeding 90 days, or  until  the
next visit of the inspector of the
district, who will re-examine the
man and assure himself  of  his
qualifications.
Heretofore, practically any
worker has been allowed to handle and use explosives without
restriction. Under the new system now being brought into effect all responsibility forthe proper use and handling of explosives, rests upon the man to whom
the certificate is issued. It in
his duty to see that the magazine
in which the explosives are stored is properly constructed, in accordance with the regulations
and satisfactory to the mines inspector; that a supply sufficient
for not more than 24 hours is allowed underground; that no naked lights shall be taken into
any magazine or place where explosives are kept, and, in general, see that the regulations are
properly lived up to. All explosives used in the mine must be
labelled with the date of manufacture; it is prohibited to convey blasting caps and   blasting
powder together into the mine;
restrictions are placed upon the
thawing of explosives to the end
that greater protection to the
workers may be given. The operations of blasting are covered
by the new regulations in strict
manner, and in fact every phase
of blasting operations is covered.
While the regulations call for
a certificate being held by a person conducting blasting operations, it is provided that a prospector having charge of not more
than 12 workmen, and being the
possessor of a special permit, authorizing him to carry on blasting operations for the purpose of
quarrying, trench-cutting and
general surface prospecting, issued by the Inspector of Mines
forthe district in which such
prospector is at the time working, may conduct such blasting
operations without being the holder of a certificate required under the regulations.
The applicant for a permanent
blasting certificate must produce
satisfactory proof that he is properly qualified to conduct blasting operations.

Consider
If Dunwell in May, 1925, was worth $4.50, with very little
cash in hand and practically no treasury stock, and capital of
$350,000,���
What is Dunwell worth the present day, with $275,000
available for mill, tramway and development?
The present market on this stoek is around $1.75 to $2.00.
This is the third time Dunwell has offered an
opportunity in Canadian Mining Investments.

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
Dunwell continued on the upward trend and shows every tendency of reaching much   higher
levels.
Indian continued on the downward way with very little activity. This stock is once more at
the gamble priee, and will likely
advance on the slightest rumor.
Independence slackened off a
few points, but any cheap offerings were quickly absorbed.
The market on L & L remained dull with few transactions being recorded.
B. C. Silver showed a marked
advance and as usual is in steady
demand.
The whole market situation
seems to be steadying down and
higher prices are looked for in
all the operating properties.
The nearness of Dunwell to
the dividend stage is drawing
the investing public more and
more back to the Portland Canal
mining field. This, with the fact
that some of the properties less
developed are showing up so remarkably well, doubtlessly assures tho whole stock market of
a very active summer and fall.
The market closed as follows:
