The Washington was located
by Mr Lundvall in 1920, and he
has done considerable work since
that time, under the handicap
of having to back-pack all his
supplies. He is driving a crosscut tunnel to tap a series of veins.
This is now in 170 feet, and he

in Stewart, and many of the well
grown children of the town have
never heard one.
Cash prizes for the numerous
field events will be larger than
ever before presented here, and

every evidence of being alive
and right on the job. Applica
tion forms for membership will
arrive shortly, when a number
of new members, both regular
and associate, are expeeted to
join. The committee, which has
in hand the arrangements for a
convention and dinner to be held
in Stewart has the work well in
hand, and a number of very good
papers by men prominent in the
industry are provided for. The
date has not yet been definitely
decided, but will be set at what
is concluded as the most convenient for a fully representative
gathering, from not only the
Portland Canal, but from Anyox
and Alice Arm.
Little Evelyn Lee Dies
Evelyn Lee, aged about four
years, daughter of Mr and Mrs
Clifford Lee and grand-daughter
of Clay Porter, died last week in
Prince Rupert of tubercular meningitis. Mr and Mrs Lee and
the other children, who have resided in Hyder for the past year,
have gone to Vancouver where
they will reside.
At a special meeting of the
Hospital Board last Tuesday the
Secretary announced receipt of
an appropriation by the Government from liquor profits toward
renewing the foundations of the
hospital. A thorough examination of the underpinning was
made recently and it was found
that, though there was no immediate danger of the building
collapsing, the posts and mudsills had rotted so seriously that
immediate action was necessary.
A committee has been appointed
to draw up specifications.
The need of additional interior
plumbing was considered and arrangements made to take care of
the situation until this work
could be undertaken.
Resignation from the board
was submitted in writing by the
Chairman, the Rev. A. W.R.Ashley, expressing thanks for the
loyal support received. This
was accepted with expressions
of regret H. G. Marvin was
elected to the position. A vote
of thanks to the retiring Chairman received hearty support.
The matter of filling the vacant
seat on the board was left until
the next meeting. J. P. Scarlett
was elected a member of the
house committee.
The Secretary was requested
to advertise for further members of the Association. In explanation of this it might be
pointed out that this Association
has been formed and registered
under the Societies Act and its
by-laws approved by the Registrar of Companies and the Provincial Secretary. The by-laws
provide that members only may
vote on the administration of the
hospital affairs. The Hospital
Board wish this known in order
to allow all those interested to
give their assistance; hence the
ad appearing on Page 4 of this
issue.
Memorial Services
Memorial services for those
who made the supreme sacrifice
in the World War will be held at
7:30 p.m. next Sunday at the
Cenotaph. All ex-service men
are requested to assemble at the
United Services Club hall at 7
o'clock for parade.
Roy Priest arrived Saturday
from Vancouver, where he spent
the winter.
J.L.Muirhead, of the Bank of

FORMATION OF THE INSTITUTE
THE MEETING reported in the news
columns last week, called at the instigation of Messrs. Major C. B. North, P. E.
'' Peterson and William Asselstine, whereat
>-t %��
'" it was decided to form in Stewart an ac-
ito tive local of the Canadian Institute of
Mining and Metallurgy, was one of the
greatest forward steps taken in this district for many years, and was an action
pregnant with many interesting features.
In the first place there was not one
man of the forty or fifty present who was
not much impressed with the high note of
optimism struck by all three of those
named, each one of whom has had a great
deal of experience, not only of this district, but also many other mining districts
in different parts of the world, and are as
well technical men of high standing,
therefore they spoke with authority and
their words consequently carried weight.
Each one in turn expressed the greatest
possible confidence in the mining future
of the Portland Canal, and reaffirmed the
statements made to the effeot that the industry of this district is making remarkably rapid progress. All were confident
of the permanency of the camp, and its
production in a few years of greatly increased quantities of metal. All of this
was most gratifying to those present, the
whole culminating in an enthusiasm seldom seen, even in Stewart, where every*
one is credited by the outside with being
an optimist and a booster.
Possibly the most significant feature
of the proceeding was the initiation of the
new organization by men of the calibre
mentioned. Such action upon the part of
men of their knowledge and experience is
(positive proof of the great future that is
believed to be the destiny of the district.
It is the first time in the history of the
camp that a lead of this sort, that has for
its purpose the facilitating of development has been given by technical men,
and as a result well merits, and will undoubtedly receive, the support of everyone interested in its development.
Such an organization will go a very
long way toward attracting increased attention to the district's mineral resouroes
from the great mining interests of the whole
world, and in this respect will greatly facilitate
development. It will as well be a medium for the
distribution of information that will be of the
greatest assistance to all concerned, from the operating company to the rawest prospect, encouraging greater co-operation and collaboration in
the solution of problems.
Nothing done in recent years is destined to
be a greater assistance to the development of this
district, than the action taken last week whereby
a Stewart local of the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy was brought into being. As
was said time and again by its fathers, Messrs.
Major C.B.North, P.E.Peterson, and Wm. Asselstine, "Let us all get together��� engineers, miners, prospectors and Stewart business men���pull
together, shove together, as one united body to
make this local what the resources of the district
merit���the livest local of the Institute in Canada
to the end of quickening the development of the
great mineral resources we know to here exist."
It takes time to build a lode camp, but it can
be done. This season will witness development
in the Portland Canal district that will convince
the most skeptical and make possible the financing of the development of meritorious properties
of that district. The Big Missouri, the Victoria,
the Independence, will all have large amounts expended in development work under competent
supervision and no one familiar with the district
questions the outcome. Each shipping mine in
the district paves the way for financing another
good prospect and this great mineralized area is
full of them.���E.W.K. in Alaska Weekly.
Now that the storm arranged in the United
States against alleged British manipulation of the
rubber market has ceased to blind the eyes of
competent observers, a genuine. little windstorm
is being stirred up against the United States domestic rubber trade. Representative Loring M.
Black, Jr.. of New York, is demanding an investigation into the fact that American tires are sold
in Great Britain 25 per cent lower than they are
sold in the U.S. "Oar committee," he says, "so
far has sought to debauch American patriotism
for the sake of powerful rubber interests. Let
us know whether capital in this country is so
minus patriotism as to stir up international discord to enrich itself."

THE surest way to get ahead in money matters is along the
old, well tried pathway of thrift.

RAISE FINISHED
IN LAROSE MINE
The raise at the LaRose mine
is now completed.  It terminates
in the exact position  intended,
namely, at  the   bottom  of  the
shaft.   It was in line  almost to
an inch, which is a credit to  the
miners,   as   they  have  steered;
their course without the aid   of'
an engineer for a distance of 130
feet.   In driving the raise  some
beautiful high grade ore was encountered,  some of the  specimens  showing  massive  native
silver in white quartz being exceedingly spectacular.    The ore
will now be drifted on and shipments made as soon as possible.

The mining market, which was
being materially affected by the
flurry in Alberta oil shares, is
rapidly coming into its own. The
quietness that has been prevalent the past six months has in
no way any connection with the
development of the mining industry of this district. Never
before in the history of Portland
Canal have such extensive ore
bodies been exposed or are in
the development stage.
Take the Dunwell, with large
ore reserves blocked out; the B.
C. Silver, shipping steadily high
grade ore and at the same time
blocking out ore reserves; the
Big Missouri, carrying out an
extensive program af development on well known ore deposits; Eastern capital becoming interested in' the Independence,
with plenty of available capital
for development, and various
other properties in the earlier
stages, for instance the Marmot
Metals, with a surface showing
that is unequalled in the district
for magnitude and solidity, carrying commercial values in gold,
silver and zinc.
The mining situation in the
Portland Canal district never
looked better, and the outside
world is gradually beginning to
wake up to the real possibilities
of mining in the Portland Canal
mineral belt.
