NEW HOPE FOR
LEAD-ZINC ORE
No mineral district in British
Columbia is so vitally interested
in the reopening and successful
operation of the Ladysmith smelter on Vancouver island as the
Portland Canal district. The announcement by the sponsors of
this enterprise that they will be
able to treat all kinds of complex
ores and pay full value for the
mineral contents, will lend new
hope to those property owners
who for years have faced the
problem of either treating their
ores on the ground and separating them into their various mineral constituencies, or else shipping ore in the crude state and
facing heavy penalties imposed
by the smelters, often with injustice, but against which an appeal would be worse than useless.
At least sixty per cent of the
ores in this district carry lead
and zinc in combination. Heretofore one or the other of these
minerals was a total loss to the
shipper, besides decreasing the
amount of payment on the mineral saved. Many ores assaying
up to $100 and better per ton
cannot now be shipped at a prefit
for this reason, and the cost of
installing separation plants is
beyond the means of most operators. It takes no great imagination to forsee what an impetus
will be lent to mining here when
the values in these ores can be
recovered in full. Ladysmith is
also within reasonable shipping
distance, and shipping costs
should be reduced to the extent
of being practically an unimportant factor of expense.
The Ladysmith smelter was
taken over by a syndicate headed
by Herbert Carmichael, former
Provincial Assayer, and H. B.
Thompson. They have secured
the services of David McBride,
metallurgist and ore expert, who
will have charge of the new reduction plant, and who this week
gave out the following statement
in Victoria:
"I've just come from Colorado
and Utah where the separation
and treatment of intimate mixtures of lead and zinc ores is a
very live question," Mr McBride
said. "Hitherto such ores have
been roughly concentrated and
smelted, with a great loss of
either the lead or zinc, and some
ores have been so complicated
that they could not be treated
at all.
"The new proceases, which we

RUSHING WORK
ON THE DUNWELL
With the Crawford Transfer
Co. hauling timbers day and
night from the dock to the Dunwell concentrator, things are!
humming in and about the Dunwell operation. The foundation
timbers for the mill are now laid
and construction well under way.
The right of way for the tram is
cleared. A Iarge tonnage of ore
is already developed in the mine,
and being increased at a rapid
rate every day.
Old Tillicums Get Together
Wm. S. Armstrong, representing the International Typographical Union, arrived from Vancouver Tuesday for a week's
visit. He is going over the camp
with Peck McSwain, the two
having known each other since
long before Peck published a
faked story ab��ut President Harrison's assassination and beat it
before an enraged public could
decide on whether to reward him
with burning at the stake or just
plain hanging. That was in the
days when any woman who put
powder on her face was considered a dissolute character.

heavily interested.
E. A. Haggen, prominent mining engineer and publisher of
Mining and Industrial Record,
arrived from Vancouver Saturday to make an examination of
the Albany property.
The Hyder Dock Company are
planning extensive improvements to their dock which will
involve an expenditure of be-
l tween five and ten thousand dollars, and giving the dock a frontage of 250 feet and greatly enlarged wharfage facilities.
"Paddy O'Dowd" the Hyder
race horse, had revenge for the
many times he has been beaten
by "Flossie," of Stewart, in the
past three years. The race was
run Wednesday night, twice
around the Stewart track, a distance of 3600 feet, and Paddy
an easy winner.
Mr and Mrs Wm. Irwin of Toronto arrived Saturday for a visit
with their son William. Though
he has passed the age of three
score years and ten, Mr Irwin
Senior looks as though he might

his husky mine-manager son,
whom he had not seen for thirty
years.

A fine ore display, consisting
of several hundred pounds from
the Marmot Metals, was placed
in the News windows yesterday
for a temporary sojourn before
being sent to the Vancouver Exhibition.
A. N. McDonald writes from
Rupert that he has undergone
an operation, having the bone of
his injured leg scraped and chiseled, and that he expects to be
out of the hospital in about three
weeks.
Under the leadership of Rev.
A. W. R. Ashley, the Stewart
troop of Boy Scouts left Monday
morning for a week's outing at
Georgia river. They were taken
to their camp site by Sam McNeil with his launch.
WM. H, LONGLEY
DIESJN HYDER
William H. Longley was found
dead in his cabin in Hyder last
Saturday evening by Jack Fitzgerald, who had engaged him to
take supplies in to the Titan
property on Fish creek and get
the camp ready for operations to
commence. Coming down from
the Independence Saturday morning Mr Fitzgerald found that
Longley had purchased the supplies, and learning Saturday evening that he had not called for
them at the Province store, led
to his making an investigation
and finding the body. Death
was evidently due to cerebral
hemmorhage.
Deceased was a man of exemplary habits and a quiet disposition. Coming to the district
from McCarthy, Alaska, several
years ago, he conducted a barber
shop in Hyder for a time, later
working at the Independence
mine. Before going to McCarthy he had lived for a number of
years in Anchorage. Alaska. He
was born in Kansas City, Missouri, was 55 years old, and is
survived by a widow, who lives
jn Seattle, and a brother, R. C.
Longley, in Pond Creek, Okla.
The funeral will take place in
Hyder at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon, July 17, under the auspices of the Masonic Club.
STARTING WORK
ON SILVER BASIN
Liberal Delegates
At a meeting of the Stewart
Liberal Association last night
delegates to the nominating convention to be held in Rupert on
July 24 were elected as follows:
W. R. Tooth, G. W. Smith, J. P.
Hawkinson and Miss Kate Ryan.
Jack Fitzgerald started development work this week on the
Silver Basin group of claims
which is owned by himself and
his brother, S.P.Fitzgerald. The
group consists of six claims and
is joined on the south by the
Day group, recently acquired by
the Big Missouri Mining Co.; on
the east by three claims of the
Big Missouri and the Hercules
group. It is one of the old locations of the camp, and has
some very promising showings.
Forest Officials Visit
Ranger Calvert and Forest Inspector Barclay visited Stewart
during the week, arriving Thursday morning on the Forest Service launch Lillian D. Mr Barclay is in charge of the records
department of the Forest Branch
in Victoria; he is now making
a prolonged tour of the mining
districts of B. C. in connection
with the controversy that has
engaged the attention of the
Lands and Mines Departments
for some time as to the extent to
which mining operators are entitled to free timber. Mr Calvert is well known here through
his periodical visits as Ranger in
charge of the district,
DEVELOPING THE
RUTH &JRANCIS
J. H. Nesbitt is developing hig
Ruth and Francis group near the
head of the south fork of Glacier
creek, four miles beyond the
Dunwell mine. The work now
being done consists of driving a
tunnel to get under the ore already shown up in a tunnel further up the creek, near the intersection of two veins, where
six feet of an antimonial silver-
lead ore give an average of over
$70 per ton. The property is
well situated, at an elevation
of 3400 feet at the camp, with
ample timber and water, on a
nice easy slope well adapted for
buildings, and so located that a
gravity tram could be constructed straight down to the wagon
road near the Dunwell mill. No
angles would be necessary.
The property presents a very
interesting geolocical and miner-
alogical condition, containing
the Bitter creek argillites and
some Bear river greenstone, the
whole intersected by innumerable dykes. There are three
large copper veins on the upper
end of the property, and two
high-grade galena veins lower
down, one of which shows a considerable amount of silver chlorides from which very high assays
have been secured. The Ruth
and Francis looks like one of the
most promising properties of the
camp.
New Manager for L & L
H. J. Thomey, manager of the
Dunwell for some time, and later
of Victoria mines, returned Saturday from Victoria where he
spent the winter. For about two
months he was in a hospital as a
result of plunging into a river
with an automobile. He has taken over the management of the
L&L Glacier Creek, Wm. Irwin
having resigned to take charge
of another enterprise.
Victoria Mines Directors
At a recent meeting of Victoria
Mines Ltd. held in Victoria, an
entirely new board of directors
was elected as follows: Arthur
E. Haynes, Mrs J. E. Holley,
Frank Coleman, Horace W. Miller, Andrew McGavin and Francis J. O'Reilly.
School Election
At a meeting of the School
Board held last Tuesday H. P.
Gibson was elected a member of
the Board, viee John Mellor, retiring. Walter Broad was elected auditor.
Mrs C.E.Hill of Tacoma arrived Saturday for a visit with her
sister, Mrs J. L. Campbell, of
Hyder.

Another satisfaction  in   connection
with this new project is the possibility of
its hastening the reported plans of the
Trail Consolidated, which owns or controls the Sunloch property on the south
end of Yaneouver Island, and the   Old
Sport, now known as the Coast Copper,
on the north end, where,  on Quatsino
Sound, it is reported that the erection of
a smelter is now being planned.   Quatsino Sound is on the west coast of Vancouver Island, some 300 miles north of the
city of Victoria.
If both these smelter projects are carried through to a successful conclusion,
B.C. coast mining will experience tremendously rapid growth within the next few
years, for then B.C. capital will not only
be profitably invested to a very considerable extent in mining, but also in smelting, which will in turn result in far more
money than ever being available for the
development qf the vast mineral resources
of this Province.

LOOKING FORWARD
The report in this week's issue of the
reopening of the Ladysmith smelter by a
Victoria syndicate or company headed by
Herbert Carmichael, late Provincial Government Assayer, and H. B. Thompson,
Canada's war-time Food Controller, and
the installation therein of a new and
much improved treatment for complex
ores, is one of the best news items that
the mining industry of the British Columbia coast has received for a long time.
This new treatment, whioh is reported
to be operating very satisfactorily in South
Africa, where, by the way, it is understood
to have originated, and in the States, is,
as reported, a big improvement over present methods, and results in a greater percentage of recovery from complex ores,
that is, a combination of ores that carry
values ln gold, silver, lead, zinc and copper, the first four of which are very common in this district, as well as the whole
coast.
Another feature well worthy of note
is the fact that it will be located at the
seaport town of Ladysmith, on the east
coast of Vancouver Island, roughly fifty
miles north of Victoria, which as a result
will mean very greatly reduced transportation rates from districts such as this.
This consideration, coupled with a more
complete metal recovery from the ores,
will prove the greatest possible boon and
stimulus to coast mining, and enable the
operation at a profit of properties at present closed down.
To date coast mining has suffered for
want of just such facilities, the news of
the providing of which will prove most
welcome, even though it may take some

In Prizes and Attractions
Canada, during the past few weeks,
has been hurled into what promises to be
one of the hottest political campaigns in
its history. A number of our readers will no
doubt be on each side of the political fence, and
consider political arguments of paramount importance, looking for such in these editorial columns.
Such of our readers are, we are afraid, doomed to
disappointment and will find that they will have
to look to the political parties and the politicians
for a presentation of the various arguments. That
is their business.
The business of the Portland Canal News is
to lend every possible assistance to the development and upbuilding of the district immediately
tributary to Stewart, as well as Northwestern
British Columbia. We endeavor to give our readers an honest and unbiased account of all the developments and happenings of this district, and
in regard to politics will mete out like treatment
to all parties through the news columns, confining
the editorial columns to the purpose for which the
paper is published. Our readers are scattered
from the shores of the Arctic Ocean to those of
the Gulf of Mexico, and from San Francisco to
Geneva, Switzerland. Forty per cent of our subscribers are not in Canada, and subscribe to this
journal for news of the development of this dis-
trict.
Every man to his own job. The setting forth
of political arguments is the work of political parties. The work of this publication is the assisting in the development and the building up 0f
this and other sections of Northwestern B.C., and this work is
not going to be allowed to suffer
for the sake of gratifying the
wishes of those who consider the
welfare of this or that political
party ahead of the progress and
development of this district.
Possibly the companies operating in B.C., which get their stationery in Spokane, do not know
that printed matter coming into
Canada from a foreign country
must state the country in which
it was printed, just as any other
manufactured goods must benr
a label stating where made.
For example, stationery from
Spokane must have printed on it,
"Printed in U.S.A." A fine of
$1000 can be imposed for each
offence upon the person using
stationery not properly labeled,
if printed in a foreign country!

NEW HOPE FOR
LEAD-ZING ORE
(Continued from Page 1.)
shall instal at Ladysmith,   have
for their object the  separating
of the lead and zinc before smelting, and in several cases the elim
ination of smelting entirely.
"Leaching the finely-divided
ore by chemical solvents has been
the line taken by many chemists,
and we have these divided more
or less into groups, which I might
call the acid leachers and the alkaline leachers, the object being
in some cases to prepare a solution for precipitation by electricity, and in others the precipitation of a metallic salt or oxide,
useful in the arts, without converting it into metal. For instance, oxide of zinc and basic
j sulphate of lead can be made
and largely used as paint bases
without first being converted into metal.
"From a study I have made of
the British Columbia mines reports, and from the mineral I
have seen in the provineial exhibit in Victoria, I would say* that
these ores of British Columbia
present quite as complex a problem as those of Colorado and
Utah, and that the solving
of the problem will mean a great
deal to the developing of new
mines, and increasing the output
of those already shipping.
"Ladysmith seems to me
mirably situated for an ore
duction plant, and when
mine owners find that they
get paid for a fair percentage of
both the zinc and lead in their
mixed ores, it will undoubtedly
stimulate production and usher
in a new era for mines of the
coast.
"With the reconstruction of
the plant at Ladysmith there will
be an entirely new method of ore
treatment, which should be profitable to that concern, while at
the same time sharing that profit
with the mine owners. The initial plant will require to be sufficiently flexible to treat the variety of ores offering on the coast
ad-
re-
the
can
and capable of expansion to suit
the kind and qnantity of mineral
development by the mines."
