Mrs McMullen and son left for
Seattle Saturday.
A big program has been decided on for celebration of our
next national holiday. Representatives of the Moose, Board
of Trade, United Services Club,
Hospital Women's Auxiliary and
the Hospital Board held a joint
meeting last Friday and elected
a committee of about a dozen
numbers, each ef whom is responsible for the carrying out of
one or more project.
It was arranged to hold a rock
drilling contest open to teams
from the Portland Canal district.
First and second prizes of $100
and $50 are offered, contestants
drilling for ten minutes and sup
plying their own tools.
A parade is to be arranged,
headed by a pipe band and will
be a typical Labor Day demonstration, showing the strength
of local organizations, industries
and commercial concerns. Entertainment will be furnished by
hjrse racing, baseball, wrestling
on horseback and tug of war between Premier and Dunwell
teams, winners of which are to
be prepared to accept challenge
from any local team offering.
The big fun of the day will be
in the Klondike Camp, which
will he under cover; details of
this are not yet ready to be published. Side shows are being
staged to amuse the erowd. The
dance jn the evening is expected
to be one of the biggest affairs
of the season. Proceeds of the
day are to be devoted to keeping
the hospital in operation and
help pay off the debt.
J.C.Brady, Conservative candidate in the coming Dominion
election, addressed something
over 200 electors in the Stewart
Opera House last Saturday evening, for a little better than an

that is still greater service to
the country
Mr Brady had just returned I
from the Atlin section of the!

Murder and Suicide

A telegraphic dispatch from

9. is as foliows: "Shot todeath,
the bodies of Gerald P. Haddon
and his wife were found in their
home on Deal street, Oak Bay,
Sunday. The police believe it to

feet of Mr Forke, the Progressive leader, in order to get their
support and hang onto office, and
has ever since been led about on
a halter, like Achiles drew Hector around the walls of Troy."
Mr Brady also dealt with the
action of the Governor General
in refusing MacKenzie King dissolution in July, pointing out:
"Stating that as a vote of censure of the Government in connection with the customs scan-'States, after they have man*
dais wis still to be dealt with in ; factured it, get $75,000,000. This

had no alternative but to refuse	
guilty than any other for this
great robbery, to the Senate at
$4000 per year. Was this the
sort of Senate reform that Mr
King advocated in 1925?"
Mr Brady then attacked the
Liberal policy of letting down
the tariff barriers and allowing
the United States to take all our
raw materials out of the country.
He instanced the asbestos industry, Canada producing 80 per
cent of the world's supply, all of
which goes to the U. S. A. for
manufacture, and for which
Canada gets $7,500,000,   and the
tariff were dealt with.

Pat Keys, one of the pioneer
mining men of the camp, having
been connected with the development of the Mineral Hill and Big
Missouri, was down this week
from the High Ore, and says
that W.R.Tonkin is in the way
of opening up a big mine there.
By building a connecting link
between his warehouse and his
main hardware store, the new

feet back to the lane toward
Fourth street.
R.D.Escombe, superintendent
of the Toric mine, Alice Arm, is
visiting the district this week
looking over various properties.
In speaking of the Toric Mr Es-
combe said that good progress is
being made with the equipping
of the property. The construction of the 100-ton mill has been
completed and delivery of mach-
] inery is now being awaited.
After a week spent at the Big
Missouri mine Messrs F. D. Oakley and G.A. dellaseth, directors
of the Big Missouri company,
with S. M. Jackson, president of
the National Bank of Tacoma,
left for their homes in Tacoma
Saturday. All three expressed
themselves as being exceptionally well pleased with development at the mine and the results
being obtained.
When asked as to whether or
not the payment of July 1st had
been made on the property they
stated most emphatically that it
had, and further that arrangements have been made to take
care of all future payments as
well as the necessary developments on the property.
In speaking of work done they
stated that this is showing up
the property very well indeed,
and that several very interesting
new showings haye been located
on the surface so far this summer.

STRIKES IT RICH

American Continent by
Finding Great Vein of
Free Milling Ore
Bringing 300 pounds of ore
samples, every one of which
shows free gold, J.O.Stenbraten,
known from Mexico to Keno Hill
in the Yukon country by the
name of "Stampede John," and
Wm. Bunting, of Hyder who,
with "Scotty" Dilworth. made
the original locations of claims
now comprising the Premier
mine, returned Tuesday morning from the Porcupine district,
in the extreme northwest portion of British Columbia.
Early last summer Stenbraten
went into that section in an endeavor to locate the source of
the placer gold found in the Porcupine district, and he was successful. Returning to this camp
he interested Wm. Bunting in
his find and the latter has spent
the past two months there, lending his 30 years of experience
and practical hard-rock knowledge to the task of tracing out
and thoroughly sampling the
vein. This was a comparatively
easy matter, as the property lies
above timber line, at an elevation of 4500 feet, and carries no
overburden; in fact the outcrop-
pings of the vein may be seen
for a distance of 6000 feet, striking east and west and lying on a
granite and lime contact.
Seventy-five open cuts have
been made across the vein, and
one shaft sunk to a depth of 53
feet. The ore throught is an
iron-stained, more er less decomposed quartz, carrying no other
metal than gold, except for some
black iron sulphides and occasionally a trace of copper. The
vein runs from four to eight feet
in width, and is free on both
walls, with more than the usual
amount of gouge seperating it
from the enclosing formations.
Eight claims have been staked
and named the Stampede Group.
The property is reached by auto,
42 miles from Haines, Alaska,
and then by eight miles of trail,
four of which are in goed shape
for pack horses to travel. Within two miles of the property is
an abundance of mining and
building timber, as well as water
power for the generating of hydro-electric energy to carry on
development on a large scale and
operate a reduction plant, which
need be only of the simplest
free milling type.
Mr Bunting has financial connections in Spokane and  leaves
for that city  tomorrow  in  response to a request to bring  his

THE RAILWAY
LAST week Mr. E. 0. Weston, on behalf of J. A. Barrett and associates, financial men and promoters of Vancouver, discussed with the people of Stewart and
Hyder the idea of putting new life into
the Portland Canal Short Line Railway.
Fourteen miles of this was built up the
Bear river valley from tidewater in 1911
by Sir Donald Mann, it being his intention
at that time to continue the road through
to the Peace River country, making Stewart a transcontinental terminal. This project, which bristles even yet with great
possibilities, unfortunately died a more or
less natural death, with the financial slump
that hit the country in the fall of 1912,
preceeding the World War by nearly two
years, both of which combined to make development work of this kind impossible,
and which also assisted in virtually ending
the brilliant career of Sir Donald Mann
and Sir William MacKenzie as railway
builders.
Now, however, that the country is
rapidly returning to normal, resulting in
increased development ln this north country, it is only to be expected that there are
many people who can realize the great
possibilities of this project and that one
of these, as appears to be the ease with
Mr. Barrett, will have the pluck and the
courage to try and put the idea into effect.
The preliminary to this, of course, is the
acquisition of the present rusting road,
and its charter, with all its original rights.'
Naturally, these people will not be
able to build the road themselves, from
here to Peace River, but what they maybe
able to do is to secure the present road and
charter, recondition, and operate a gas
engine train over it from the beach to
Bitter ereek at least once a week, until
such time as the business warrants an improved service. Such a railway would
without doubt secure considerable business at the outset from the deyelopment
of mining properties up the valley, and in
addition from hauling freight and concentrates for the Dunwell mine, thus enabling
the operation of a better service than once
a week to as far at least as Glacier creek.
Such a move would quicken the development of the whole Bear river section, constituting a great encouragement to the
development and operation of a number of
important properties along the full extent
of the Bear river, thus in a short time carrying the road to its summit, and shortly
afterwards over it. Thus would be opened the whole of the upper Naas, From
this point it would only be, from a railway
standpoint, an easy matter to extend the
line 60 miles or less to the great Groundhog anthracite coalfields. This would then
have carried the road 90 of the 250 milea
from tidewater to the western edge of the
Peace River wheat belt, thereby leaving a
link to be connected of only 160 miles to
be built, to tap those great wheat areas,
opening to development, tributary and along its
route, a country fabulously rich in minerals, coal,
timber and land���wilnout doubt the richest continuous section in this rich province.
These are the possibilities which Mr Barrett
and his people evidently plainly see, and seeing*
them know full well that if they can secure the
road and its charter, and get the project started,
it would be only a short time until they would be
able to make some successful deal for the financing ef it to completion by possibly selling it te one
or another of the big companies, or by some other
method. However, so far as the people of Stewart are concerned, it matters not how the railway
is secured and operated, so long as action is obtained.

GET ZING PLANT
The following by E.A.Haggen
M.E., appeared reeently in the
Prince Rupert News. Mr Haggen made a trip to Europe last
spring and is supposed to have
obtained some inside information.
A company financed by British
and Swedish capital has developed, through one ef the best European metallurgists, a process
for treatment of complex ores at
low cost. For instance, it is
claimed that in the case of zinc
ores or concentrates tarrying
high values in silver, as perfect
an extraction of the silver can
be obtained as in the case of
clean lead ores. By present processes the loss of silver in zine
ores is high, and heavy deductions have to be made by present
metallurgical plants accordingly.
Under the process referred to it
is claimed that all silver values
up to 5 per cent can be paid for
and that zinc deductions are reduced to 10 per cent. At present
even the Belgian metallurgical
plants Cannot handle zinc ores
high in silver and refuse to accept them as they cannot recover
a sufficiently large percentage of
the silver.
The company is building a
plant in Scotland at a cost of $1-
500,000, and is arranging for
shipments of siiver-zinc and other
complex ores and concentrates
from all parts ofthe world, lhe
manager intends visiting British
Columbia at an early date to ascertain the precise conditions
here, and if he can see a sufficient quantity of such ores avail
able the company will establish
on the coast a plant to treat them
���probably at the town of Stewart on Portland Canal.
ONE MORE MINE
FOR OLD B. C.
The Patterson and Wright
mine, situated at Surf Inlet, near
Welcome Harbor on Porcher Island, is the latest mining property to come in the actual shipping
class in northern British Columbia. The mine is owned by A.E.
Wright, land surveyor of Prince
Rupert, and Mr Patterson who
has lived for the past eight years
at Surf Point. The ore carries
values of free milling gold and
copper and a small trial shipment
was made last year. This week
a shipment of 80 tons of high
grade ore was made to the Granby smelter, the first shipment of
the season. The ore was got out
by hand, but it is understood the
owners contemplate putting in
machinery, to enable bigger development work to be carried out
this fall.
The Belmont-Surf Inlet Gold
Mining Co. spent some $40,000
a few years ago on this property
and then abandoned it.���Prince

Facts
cf the Brewing Industry
in British  Columbia
THE Brewing Industry of British Columbia employs hundreds of men
with an annual payroll of about three-
quarters of a million dollars, using per
annum nearly ten million pounds of malt,
made from barley grown in Canada, and
over one hundred and fifty thousand
pounds of hops produced in British
Columbia.
IT requires over one hundred thousand dollars for
fuel, mined tn British Columbia, to produce the
Reer consumed In this province. Many hundreds
of thousands of dollars are paid by the Brewers
annually for mnlrrinls such as bottles, cooperage,
rroivnsloppcrs, labels and bottle wrappers���all of
which are manufactured In Canada.
TIIE taxes paid by the Breweries to the Government amount to over eight hundred and
seventy thousand dollars per annum, exclusive of
Income taxes.
THE citizens of this province must rocognlze the
Importance of such an Industry and help to
build It up; payrolls and Industries are building
cities and are the foundation of prosperity.
THE Amalgamated Breweries of B. C. arc manufacturing good Beers, fully matured and aged,
a product recommended by physicians on account
of Its nourishing and health-giving qualities; these
beers contain only a very low percentage of alcohol
and therefore are the proper stimulant needed
when exhausted or overworked, as recognized by
medical authorities.
THE Vancouver Brewery Limited, Rainier Brewing Co. of Canada Limited, Westminster Brewery Limited, Silver Spring Brewery Limited and the
Victoria Phoenix Brewing Co. Limited, members of
the Amalgamated Breweries of B. C., are under
supervision of the Liquor Control Board, and their
Beers are analyzed from time to time by expert
firms of the continent upon Instigation of the
Liquor Control Hoard, which gives ample assurance to the public that they receive only pure and
wholesome Beers when bought either In the Government Vendor Store or In licensed beer parlors.

Local Stocks
(By H. W.M.Rolston & Co)
The whole trend of the market
the last week has shown stability and the demand for local
mining stocks is spreading, and
practically all the well known issues are in steady demand.
Reports from the Independence
are very favorable. The ore bodies exposed higher up the hill
have been uncovered at a lower
level and are now being worked
on only some 400 feet up from
level ground. The deal whereby
Detroit capital is to become interested in the Independence is
still in progress, and a favorable
report is expected from Sam
Fitzgerald at any time. With
the well known ore bodies on
this property being exploited a
much higher level in the price of
the stock is looked for.
Marmot Metals is in steady demand. The tunneling on this
property is expected to prove the
ore deposits materially. The
stock is looked upon to react to
higher levels in the near future.
The Marmot Metals workings
were recently sampled with very
gratifying returns.        *
Work at the Dunwell is progressing rapidly on the mill,
tram and power plant, and the
management report that the ore
body in No. 4 is proving one of
the best in the mine. The stock
is looked upon as a sure dividend
payer next year.

As for Stampede John, he says
his days of beating it away from

to get into the real money arrived, are gone forever. He figures
that here is the stake to recompense him for the trips across

the fly-fighting, canoe-paddling
expeditions into the mining districts of central Canada, the
creek stampedes of placer-mad

GREATOVATION
(Special to the Portland Canal Newa)
Vancouver, Aug. 10 ��� Ten
thousand men and women battled lor positions at tbe depot
and forthe opportunity of shaking the hand of Hon. H. H. Stevens, Minister of Customs, who
made a triumphal return to his
home town tonight after his
month's work at Ottawa on the
customs enquiry. He waa accorded the most spontaneous reception ever given a citizen of
the Dominion coming to the
coast and only rivalled by that
given to H.R.H. the Prince of
Wales.
A thousand automobiles bearing banners "Stevens, the Man
of the Hour," "He Saved Millions for Canada," "A Great Canadian" and other similar wording, paraded through the streets
which were lined by cheering
thousands of people. Traffic was
tied up for half an hour while
the great procession, the largest
yet seen in Vancouver, moved
slowly along the main thoroughfares. Men and women rushed
from the sidewalks in their endeavors to shake the Minister of
Customs by the hand, while police reserves were forced into
