of these, with^the exception of
the Wire Gold, are situated cn
the mountain that lies between
the forks of Marmot river. In
addition the company has longtime options on other properties
which will aggregate 900 acres.
The claims include a large part
of the ground taken under option two years ago by the Sterling Silver Company, which has
been taken over hy the International. To.T) Campbell, who has
been connected with mining in
the west and northwest for many
years, organized the Sterling and
is in charge of mining operations
for the International. Mr Campbell, who left for Seattle on yesterday's boat has, during the
past four yeara, thoroughly acquainted himself with the properties and is convinced that with
proper exploitation they will become one of the largest mining
operations on the continent.
T. S. Waltemeyer of Seattle,
himself a practical mining man
and metallurgist of many years'
experience, is secretary of the
company. Mr Waltemeyer was
associated with the development
of the Greenawalt electrical process of ore extraction, which originated in Denver, Colo, and
has proven a gr^at success on
ores of every character. When
development of the property
proves up sufficient tonnage to
warrant the installation of a
Greenawalt unit, one will be installed On the Marmot. Mr
Waltemeyer became interested
in this section through the representations of Joe Green, a resident of Hyder and a well known
Northerner.
The properties taken ever extend from the foot of the mountain practically to its summit.

HATTON--BECKER
A wedding of interest was
solemnized at the Hyder M. E.
Church Nov. 24th by the Rev.
S.J.Warren, when Miss Lavinia
Becker, second daughter of Mr
and Mrs William H. Becker, ol
Stewart, and Mr Thomas HattonT
formerly of Toronto, and more
recently connected with the
Dunwell mine, were united in
marriage.
Miss Jean Becker and Earl
Becker, brother and sister of the
bride, acted as bridesmaid and
best man. The bride's gown
was of white duchesse satin and
lace and she carried a bouquet
of pink and white carnations,
while the bridesmaid wore a
pretty dress of white silk voile.
She also carried white and pink
carnations.
After the ceremony the bridal
party drove over to the home of
the bride's parents, which was
appropriately decorated for the
occasion. Refreshments were
served to numerous guests, after
which dancing was enjoyed until the small hours. The happy-
couple were the recipients of
many handsome gifts and good
wishes from their numerous
friends.

GUARD CENOTAPH
That the community holds in
proud remembrance the sacrifice
of those men who made of their
bodies a living shield for us, is
shown in concrete form by the
erection and care of the monument which stands on the Stewart-Hyder road.
The cenotaph was designed by
S.G.Lawrence and built by the
United Services Club in 1924,
This autumn the rock was blasted from behind the memorial by
the Department of Public Works
during the course of their road
improvement operations, while
eight concrete posts were built
in front of the monument, between which chains were to have
been hung. These however were
considered too low to keep out
horses and cattle, and telegraph
wire was twisted into a light
cable out of which a fence was
made in a design of the historic
dates, 1914-1918.
It is the intention of the Club
to have flowers blooming in this
enclosure under efficient supervision throughout the season,
and toward this a further donation of eight cubic yards of soil,
in addition to that already transported by the Club, has been
made by Dale L. Pitt.
All praise is due S.G. Lawrence
for his untiring and artistic work
on the memorial. He has had
charge of the work since its
inception and has made a still
further contribution in the donation of a crayon drawing which,
when raffled, brought the sum of
$35, which will go towards paying for the improvements on the
cenotaph.
HORN SILVER
NOTTHE FIRST
Premier Produced Bullion
Five Years Before the
Similkameen Mine Made
Its Display
Having watched the loading
of several large bricks of bullion
on a ship at the Stewart wharf
several years ago, it was with
some surprise that the writer
read the following in the New
Westminster Columbian, in an
account of the minera! exhibit
at the fair held early this fall in
that city:
"The British Columbia Chamber of Mines has a wonderful
display of practically every kind
of mineral found in the province
from almost all properties which
are being operated. The display
is in charge of Aid. Frank E.
Woodside and Henry Browning
of Vancouver, president and secretary of the organization, and
includes about 8000 ounces of
silver bullion mined from the
Horn Silver property at Similkameen, which is owned by A. C.
McDougall and associates of
Vancouver. The silver is one of
the centres of attraction in the
mineral section of the Industrial
building and added interest is
attached to it by reason of the
fact that it was obtained by the
cyanide process, by which the
metal is separated without smelting. The cyanide process was
introduced for the first time in
British Columbia at the Horn
Silver property by Geo. H. Shepherd, metallurgist at that claim.
Its use will be of much benefit to
silver mining in the province,
for it is possible thereby to obtain about 94 per cent of the silver in the crude ore. By the former smelting method a large
proportion of the metal in high
grade ore was lost."
What About Premier?
With no thought to disparage
the performance of the Horn
Silver mine, or to in any way
belittle the achievements of G.
H. Shepherd, (who, by the way,
conducted an assay office here
last year,) a letter was sent to
the Premier management asking
for details as to their experience
in the manufacture of bullion,
to which the following reply was
received:
"For your information, the
Premier Gold Mining Co., during the early stages of the operation of its mill, melted some of
the precipitate from the cyanide
department and shipped it as
bullion to the Selby smelter at
Selby, Cal.
"We decided, however, that
owing to excellent  rates  made
PREMIER ENTERS
MARMOT FIELD
An event of importance to the
Marmot section occurred this
week when the Premier Gold
Mining company took an option
on the Melvin group of five
claims, adjoining the Porter
Idaho group on the west, and
owned by Mr. and Mrs. N. H.
Stevens of Hyder. The terms of
the deal are not made public,
but it is known that a substantial cash payment was made
to hold the ground subject to
confirmation of the deal by the
head office in New York city.
The negotiations were completed Monday and Mm. Stevens
left that night for Vancouver,
while Mr. Stevens went to
Ketchikan. Both have put in
considerable time on the property, tracing out a series af
veins by open cutting and surface
stripping. Seven veins in all
were thus disclosed, and assays
show that the values carried are
principally in gold, the ore differing in this respect from most of
that foun J on the north fork of
the Marmot, which runs to silver
and lead.
Basket Ball Banquet
This will be a big night in basket ball circles. The two Premier teams and the B. C. Silver
team are coming down to join the
Stewart team in a banquet at the
King Edward cafe and dance afterwards in the opera house. At
the banquet the trophy shield,
donated by the Canadian Ingersoll Rand to the winning team of
the Portland Canal league, will
be presented to the Stewart
team, who won all but one of the
series played last summer, and
lost that one by only tvro points.
The banquet is to be a stag
affair with a charge of $2, which
will mclude also a ticket to tbe
dance.
by the Smelter, and to the possible loss to ourselves by melting
precipitate locally, it would be to
our advantage to ship the precipitate instead of running it to bullion. There was accordingly only
one shipment made. Tnis amounted to 827 pounds containing 375
ounces of gold and 3876 ounce s
of silver. The shipment was
made in Dec, 1921."
So here we have a paradax.
The Horn Silver is allegedly
making bullion from its precipitates to prevent loss, and the
Premier discontinued doing so
for the same reason. Moreover
we see that the report in the
southern paper is incorrect as to
the Horn Silver being the first
in B.C. to use the cyanide process and to make bullion from
the precipitates. PORTLAND   CANAL   NEWS.   STEWART, B. C,   FRIDAY.   NOVEMBER 26,   1926

INDEPENDENCE
ABOUT fifteen years ago Sam and
John Fitzgerald drifted into the Portland
Canal country and started ont to prospect.
They have been in the camp ever since���
and what is more to the point they have
been working all the time. Last week a
deal was closed under the terms of which
New York capital will finance extensive
development and the installation of a mill
on one of their properties, the Independence.
In connection with this latest big development in the Portland Canal section,
which in the near future will add another
shipping mine to the district's list of producers, there are two or three things worthy of mention.
The chief thing is that it demonstrates
the truth of our oft-repeated assertion
that wherever money is intelligently expended on a prospect in the Portland Canal
iietriet the results will more than justify
the expenditure. The Fitzgerald boys
worked, and for every dollar received for
the sale of stock they have put a dollar in
the ground on the Independence group of
claims, with the result that 1700 feet of
underground work and 30 open cuts were
ready when the representatives of big cap
ital finally came along to look the property over. They have had tough going at
times, but they managed to keep a few
men working and every foot of tunnel
served to farther demonstrate the property
Again we want to compliment the
Fitzgerald boys on their good common
sense in permitting capital to obtain the
fifty-one per cent interest necessary to
complete the deal. Too many prospectors
prefer a 51 per cent interest in a dead
prospect to a 49 per cent interest in a developed mine. Capitalists are seldom willing to put large sums of money under the
jurisdiction of others, and many a prospector has hung on grimly to the "control" of something not worth controlling
when he might readily have had a sizable
interest in a going money-making mine.
It seems reasonably well assured that
the Portland Canal district will soon have
another shipping mine and that Sam and
John Fitzgerald will in the not too distant
future realize a great deal more money
for their efforts than they would have realized had they put the money into their
pockets instead of into the ground as is
the habit of a number of mining promoters we might mention.
The work they have already done on
another property, the Titan group, has
uncovered some mighty good looking ore
and we hope that they will be equally successful in the development oi that property���Alaska Weekly.

Write for our folder,

The Slocan Record says: "As a rule the
liquor sold by the government vendors in small
towns is so vile that experienced persons purchase
from the "bootlegger" in preference to the public
vendor."
Isn't our old friend Jim Grier slightly off his
base on this subject? We are under the impression that all vendors' stores draw their supplies
from the same common source���the government
warehouse in Victoria.
On a trip outside a year or two ago the writer
took along a bottle of-Scotch (in
case of sea-sickness)   from  the
Stewart vendor's store.  In their
consuming joy at his safe   arrival in the metropolis,   some of
his friends brought to his room
some more of the same   brand,
obtained at a   Vancouver  vendor's store.   Once, when the demand exceeded the  supply  ana
the vendor* had closed,  one  of
the party called a number on the
phone and within ten  minutes a
fine-looking gentleman appeared
with several life-savers that did
not bear the  government  seal.
This was "bootleg" liquor,
The dealer in unsealed liquor
cannot operate in the smaller
towns. Booze there must be obtained from the vendor. As to
its subsequent disposition, well,
that's another story.

big producers are the Kafue Copper Development Company, operating the dredge on Antler
creek, and the Cedar Creek Mining Company, which has a hydraulic operation at the head of
Cedar Creek, Quesnel lake.
Cedar Cteek Mining Company
is developing into something of
a wonder mine. It has a record
of production a few years asro,
but operations ceased for some
months and were resumed last
January. Up to November 1st,
production was 5,071 ounces, or
over $101,000. This will be augmented by gold recovered this
month and next, for production
is steadily going on. This amount of gold was saved by only
the simplest of equipment and
during the first part of the year
appliances were primitive. The
richness of the ground is shown
by the fact that $1000 a day
clean-ups are not infrequent.
"I was on the ground a few
days ago," R.G.McLeod, mining
man, told Western Canada Mining News, "and a cleanup was
made while I was there. It amounted to at least $1000 and it
was a sight to see the nuggets
being picked out."
The Kafue dredge will produce
between $140,000 and $150,000
worth of gold this year. It worked in rich ground in July, and
operations generally throughout
the year have been very satisfactory. This dredge will make
even a better snowing in the future, and its success is attracting
other large companies to the Cariboo district. As noted in last
issue the Consolidated M & S Co.
is going to work leases held by
1I.E.C. Carry of Vancouver, and
in the Antler Creek section. In
addition, there are numerous
small hydraulic operations conducted by individuals which result in much gold being recovered
No report has come in  yet  of
the result of the  operations  of
the Discovery Mi'iing &  Power
Company,    Pine  Creek,   Atlin.
This is financed by C. V. Bob of
j New York, who controls the En-
, gineer   mine,   the  operator  in
j charge being Andrew Sostad of
j Vancouver.     It   was   expected
that the ground to  be   worked
would be productive,  as it was
well known.
With placer operations progressing near Cranbrook, near
Vernon, in the Coquhalla district. Cariboo. Omineca and Cassiar, there is every indication
that production of gold from this
source will form a more important part in the total of the
year's mining operations.
The first shipment of ore is being made from the mine at Kalum lake, near Terrace, by Hopper, Davis & Co. Work has been
going on there for two years.
R. Farnum, mining engineer, is
in charge.
Work on the Monarch mine,
near Field, has been suspended
for the winter. The mine is being operated by A. B. Trites and
promises to again become a big
producer.

....An excellent

Pl'RE and wholesome beers are made for the
people of British Columbia by the Amalgamated Breweries. They are vitalizing, refreshing and healthful. McDonald and McDonald,
Analytical Chemists, of Vancouver and Victoria,
in their recent report on beers analyzed by them,
say:
", . . . The samples prove to be excellent
beer. They are high in phosphoric acid, while
the acidity is low and the volatile acidity is
practically nil, proof that the beer is a wholesome
and nutritious beverage."

Local Stocks
(By H. W. M. Rol ston & Co)
Nothing fo extra comment
took place on the southern markets during the past week,
though all the local stocks were
in good demand and trading was
brisk in Premier, Dunwell and
Independence.
It is rumored that Premier interests have taken over control
of the Melvin property on the
north fork of Marmot river and
adjoining the Porter Idaho Mining Co. Ltd.
Most of the inquiries coming
into camp at the present time
are on Marmot river properties.
What has been of interest to
note lately is the amount of Premier stock that is being taken
up locally and at the Premier
Mine.
With the last call on the Dunwell stock being'due on November 23, '26, the stock is rapidly
strengthening and when the mill
starts operating this stock will
react very rapidly. The present
market value of Dunwell is no
where near its intrinsic value.
