H. Scovil Resigns
After having spent the past
six years in charge of the road
work of the district for the provincial government, Henry Scovil has sent in his resignation to
take effect as from the 1st of
July, and is to be sucteeded by
Hugh McDonald, who has been
mining and prospecting in the
district for some years, and was
one of the contractors who put
the road through from Stewart
to the old wharf. While Mr McDonald is considered an exceptionally capable man, and his appointment will be popular, still
the many friends of Mr Scovil
regret very much his resignation
and all wish him well on the undertakings he has in view.
Mrs A.W.R. Ashley and children returned Sunday from a visit
of several weeks with her parents in Maymont, Sask. Miss

PROSPERITY FOR
INDEPENDENCE
S.P.Fitzgerald, president and
managing director of the Independence mining company, arrived this week and verified the
report that Detroit and Portland
capital had agreed to finance operation of the mine. The sum
of $25,000 is to be spent in the
first operations, and if these are
satisfactory a further $100,000
must be expended to seal the
bargain for control of the property. Dalby B. Morkill, Provincial Land Surveyor, is now on
the ground surveying out a site
for a new tunnel which will be
run under the direction of Mr
Fitzgerald, with Chas. D. Bush,
representing the prospective buyers, as consulting engineer.
Mr Fitzgerald spent several
days on the property this week,
and says he is more than pleased
with the progress made and the
ore showings exposed since he
went south last fall. His brother, Jack Fitzgerald, who has
superintended operations and
kept the work going sometimes
under difficult circumstances,
will retire and take over the operation of the Titan property on
Fish creek.
The tunnel now being laid out
is expected to cut the ore showings opened up in the prospect
tunnels, at a depth ef 700 feet
and with an outlet which will
permit of their profitable exploitation.
The Independence has always
been considered here as a potential mine of the first magnitude.
Mr Fitzgerald stated that there
is plenty of ore in sight now that
could be shipped at a profit, but
it is good business to leave this
in the ground until facilities are
provided for milling the ore bodies as a whole. PORTLAND   CANAL   NEWS,   STEWART,   B. C,   FRIDAY,    JUNE   11,   1926

this Province who can barely speak English, let alone read it.
Taken all in all the new regulations
will prove a great boon to operators and
miners alike, and so to the whole mining
industry.
NEW BLASTING REGULATIONS
The Hon. Wm. Sloan, Minister of
Mines, is to be congratulated upon his
new blasting regulations in and about
mines. Heretofore, and even up to the
moment that these go into effect, any man
who has an abundance of self-assertion
and confidence, supported by some little
knowledge, possibly just enough to make
him dangerous, can, when men are wanted in blasting operations, walk up and
make application, claiming he is this or
that, and there is no way of proving his
statements until it is possibly too late; net
only that, but this very quality of audacity may have secured him the position
to the detriment of an experienced man,
and even to the danger of himself and
fellow-workers.
This feature of the new regulations
therefore is to be very much commended;
but in addition there is also the fact that
it gives the real miner a rating in such a
manner as to protect him not only to a
great extent from danger, but also from
the unfair competition of the four-flusher,
and in the same manner gives the management protection from these same gentlemen, where at the moment there is little
or no protection.
The regulations appear to be so drawn
as to necessitate not only a speaking
knowledge of English but also a reading
knowledge, before a man can secure the
necessary certificate, which is another of
its many other good features. Many men
are today handling powder throughout
NEW SURVEY REGULATIONS
In last week's issue the news columns
carried an item of news supplied by D. B.
Morkill, P.L.S., with reference to the new
survey regulations as they affect mining
claims, and among other things requiring
the driving of an iron post into the ground
or rock at the corners ef each claim, in
addition to the old-time markings. This
iron post shall bear the lot number and
corner markings, stamped with a steel die.
While to some this procedure may ap*
pear as adding to the burdens of a claim-
owner, particularly in so far as it is estimated that it means an additional expense in
Crown granting of about $20 per claim, still it
has its good features, as it establishes permanently the location of the respective corners of a
mineral claim.
There is no doubt but that the Surveyor General by experience has been given good cause for
deciding upon such drastic changes to the Act,
and is therefore taking only what has proven to
be a necessary step.
It is not difficult to imagine that in the recent come-back of the mining industry in the
Kootenay and Boundary districts, considerable inconvenience and difficulty have arisen through
the fact that boundaries of claims surveyed 25
years and more ago have had to again be run over
with instruments before they could be properly
established, owing to the original corner markings having for one reason and another disappeared. Such possibilities combined with other conditions have most probably been great contributing factors in deciding the Surveyor General.
The choral entertainment given last week
by the Stewart Musical Association was a distinct
treat to lovers of music; but most important of all
is the thus-proven fact that there is existant in
Stewart a great deal of musical talent which by
co-ordination under capable direction as exhibited
by Mrs G.C.Andrew, could be a boon to the whole
community. It is therefore to be hoped that last
week's performance will prove a forerunner of
many more to come, particularly through the winter months. The entire society, both collectively
and individually, and the Directress. Mrs Andrew, are to be congratulated upon the splendid
showing made last week.

mine at Smithers was producing
ore that assayed 21,000 ounces in
silver per ton. A rich phrase
which mining men will enjoy, is
that "the ruby silver runs 65 per
cent pure."
In reporting the most recent
development on the Duthie the
Interior News of Smithers says:
"A sample of ore taken across
the vein has been assayed and
has returned 2100 ounces of sil-
Jjver to the ton."
"Exceeding in richness and
extent anything yet opened at
the Duthie mine or in any part
of this district," says the Interior News, "a strike made in the
lower workings of that property
last week has created a sensation that has only increased as
additional reports and samples
of ore come down the hill. All
is enthusiasm at the mine and
interest has been doubled by
all in town to whom the success
of mining on Hudson Bay mountain means so much, and the
strike is sensational in its importance as demonstrating conclusively that the ore on that exceptional property does go down and
that values increase at depth.
The new strike was made at
the compressor level, the lowest
j of  three  tunnels  forming  the
main development of the Duthie
mine.   This winze had been sunk
about  70 feet  when  Engineer
| Turner brought the men back to
the 60-foot point and started  a
j crosscut, and it was in this work
that the rich ore was  uncovered
1 with a suddeness that  set  the
, whole camp agog.
       The winze was lunk at a point
��� I in the water tunnel about 500 ft.
from the portal and at the new
j discovery   gives   an   overhead
'depth of 300  feet.     The  vein
opened up has a  width  varying
I from 10 to 14 inches of solid ore

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 werth the present day, with $275,000
available for mill, tramway and development?
The present market on this stock is around $1.75 to $2.00.
This is the third time Dunwell has offered an

Ircal Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
The tone of the whole market
showed    marked   improvement
during the week and  a  number
of the lower priced stocks came
into active demand   at  steadily
increasing prices.
B. C. Silver and Dunwell are
holding favorites and are looked
upon as mining investments ef
outstanding merit, and the present prices are not expected to
last long.
Marmot Metals stock slackened
off a point, but the cheap offerings were quickly taken up. It
appears as if this stock is becoming very scarce and there are no
large blocks offering. Reports
from the mine are most encouraging.
The news that ffnancial arrangements have been successfully completed on Independence
caused activity in this stock and
higher levels are expected.
Lakeview. Indian Porter Idaho
are still weak.
