RAILWAY PROJECT
BEFORE BOARD
OF TRADE
Considerable routine business
was dealt with at a well attended meeting of the Board of Trade
Tuesday evening.
The Board has made application to affiliate with the newly
formed Associated Boards of
Trade of Canada, and steps were
taken to be represented by W.R.
Smith at the convention of the
Associated Boards of British Col-1
umbia, to be held shortly in!
North Vancouver, at which there
will be considerable discussion
on the question of the Peace
River railway.
The incorporation committee
reported that the total assessed
value of real and personal property in the town of Stewart for
the year 1925 was $339,455, and
further that Robert Baird, Inspector of Municipalities, expects to soon visit Stewart. The
nmmittee compiling an advertising pamphlet for the district
reported the project well in hand
The question of providing a building that can be used as a morgue
was discussed.
E. 0. Weston, who has visited
this district for several years
past in connection with the de-
velopment of the Troy Mines, j
was then introduced and laid be-
fore the meeting the idea that i
his associates and himself had in
connection with the opening up
of the railway constructed 14
miles up the Bear valley in 1911
by Sir Donald Mann, and which
ever since about 1912 has lain
dormant. Mr Weston explained
that he was present at the request of his principal, J. A. Barrett, who 'he stated is a successful financial man of many
years' experience. Mr Barrett
has, he stated, been studying
for the past year the whole railway situation of northern B. C,
and being a man of vision he was
imbued with the wonderful resources of the country and its
possibilities, particularly for the
Portland Canal Short Line, and
its ultimate extension into the
Peace River with terminals in
both Stewart and Hyder. Not
being of a type that attacks a
problem half-heartedly, he has
already gone to the length of
having arranged for connections
with existing lines west that will
give trunscontinental communication.
Mr Weston explained that his
mission in Stewart is to look over
the situation carefully and to at
the same time open local negotiations for the co-operation and
support of the residents of this
district.   The idea is to purchase

Good Ore on Barite
J. L. Hackett of Victoria has
made an examination of the Barite group near the head of Bear
river, in company with Harry

Mr Hackett took some samples
for assaying, and obtained results as follows: Sample No. 1,

OUTLAND SILVER
BAR PROGRESS
Work on the Outland Silver
Bar property near the head of
Salmon glacier has disclosed an
interesting situation and is resulting in the production of some
exceptionally fine ore, assays
running up to 503 ounces in silver and $28.30 in gold. Samples
brought to town show a large
percentage of tetrahedrite or
grey copper, with stee! galena
and pyrrhotite. The tunnel is
now in 90 feet, following a vein
carrying from six inches to one
foot of high-grade. At 65 feet
from the portal a second vein
came in at an acute angle and
ran along with the first for 25
feet, then gradually left the
other vein on the opposite side
from where it entered.* This second vein carries galena and
quartz and assays $116.40, which
includes a lead content of 39 per
cent.
Another tunnel is now being
driven to get under an eight-foot
vein that erops on the cliff, and
Mr Outland took up two additional miners to prosecute this
work.
A comfortable camp has been
constructed, consisting of two
bunkhouses and kitchen, and
separate living and office quarters for Mr Outland, who is personally supervising the development. No special effort is being
made to get out an ore shipment
but as the pack trains come
down after delivering supplies
they are loaded with ore produced in the course of development,
which will be shipped some time

O. B. SMITH DIES
IN VANCOUVER
Oren Barron Smith, former
mining superintendent of the
Granby Consolidated Smelting
and Power Co., died in Vancouver July 28. He joined the company at Grand Forks in 1899,
and in 1904 became their superintendent of mines at Phoenix.
Four years later he was promoted as the company's superintendent of all mines, and as such
spent much of his time at Anyox.
His death will be deeply regretted by his many friends in this
district. He was 52 years old
and is survived by his wife and
two daughters.
At the time of his death Mr
Smith was engineer in eharge of
the Gleaner Consolidated Mining
Co. at AtHa.
MAY TRAP FISH IN
PORTLAND CANAL
The Canadian Fishing Compa
ny will be allowed this year to
fish with traps in Portland Canal.
The new government has reversed the action of the former
one, which held up the licenses,
and instructions have gone forward to authorize the use of
traps in the waters in question.
The matter has been the subject of conflicting representations from the company and
from fishermen in the district
and the previous decision was
adveise to the license being issued. The new ruling reverses
this and allows the company to
go ahead and use the traps.
COL. PERKINS LIKES
VANCOUVER GROUP
Col. W. T. Perkins of Seattle,
who is prominently connected
with the Vancouver Mines Ltd.,
owning a group of claims on American creek, has spent a week
in the district, several days being occupied in looking over this
property in company with Sam
Desehamps, the discoveror. Col.
Perkins expresses himself as
highly pleased with the property
and says its merits have been in
no way exaggerated by Mr Des
champs, there being a number
of large mineralized zones traversing the group, with good oreltified."
GREAT ZING VEIN
DISCOVERED ON
MT. TREVOR
Ed Wagner returned this week
from Mt. Trevor, where he has
been doing some work on the
Liberty group of four claims
which he discovered last fall. He
dug two open cuts, one 10 feet
deep and the other 4��, across the
vein and 800 feet apart. Thoroughly sampling across the full
width of the vein, 11 feet, he
had seven assays made and received an average of 21.9 per
ecnt zinc, the lowest assay being 20.5 per cent and the highest
26 per cent. Aside from 20 cents
in silver, zinc is the only metal
the ore contains, not a traee of
lead being found. There is no
overburden on the mountain and
the vein is plainly visible for a
distance of 2800 feet, maintaining an average width ef 11 feet.
It can be developed by an adit
tuijnel, which would gain eight
inches of depth for every foot
driven.
Mt Trevor is an isolated peak
that rises out of Bromley glacier
and attains an altitude of abeut
5000 feet. At the level of the ice
which surrounds it the elevation
is 3200 feet. By the route traveled by Mr Wagner the mountain
is 21 miles from Stewart, but in
a direct line it is 15 miles from
salt water, lying almost directly
east of Marmot riyer. Mr Wagner goes in over the Bitter creek
trail to the glacier, and fellows the ice for five miles.
J.A.Kilburn, ore buyer for the
Trail smelter, visited the property last fall and obtained ore
averaging about 9 per cent zinc.
He recommended that some work
be done, and is expected in soon
to make another examination.
There are a number of peaks
rising through the vast body of
iee that forms Bromley glaciar,
and it is more than probable that
all of them are mineralized. At
any rate a new field is in view for
the prospectors to investigate.

THANK YOU
EACH week of the year, year in and
year oat, this journal is published, each
issue being an honest endeavor to give our
readers, who are scattered over a wide
area of this continent as well as Europe,
as correct an idea of the possibilities and
development of this district as is humanly
possible.   In short the real mission and
reason for the existence of the Portland
Canal News is the furtherance of the interests of the Portland Canal and Northern
British Columbia.   In so far as the future
of this section depends very largely, for
at least some time to come, upon mining,
our duty to the community is naturally to
lend every possible support to its honest
development.
This diet of mining we try however to
vary as much as practicable with news of
local happenings and events which, however, must of necessity be only secondary
to that which is the very cause of the existence of the town of Stewart, mining.
This, in short, is our policy���one that
has brought many verbal and written messages of congratulation and appreciation
from outside as well as home sources, such
as the letter printed below. Messages of
this sort are very greatly appreciated by
the entire office, for they make our work
seem worth while, and lend encouragement to greater effort.

WHEN it comes to possessing more
inside information about ore reserves than
any other individual, not even excepting
the mining engineer and geologist, the
distinction must go to the diamond drill
man. And in the matter of disclosing this
knowledge, except to his employers, the
diamond drill man is no more garrulous
than the Sphinx.
He it is who explores into the heart
of a mountain for the precious metals.
Boyles Bros, have for a slogan, "We look
into the earth/' They do just that. They
might be said to blaze the trail for the
miner to follow with his machine drills
and dynamite charges. Vast sums of money are expended on development with
sure returns, thanks to the little cores of
rock he pulls out of the earth. To a very
great extent he eliminates the element of
chance from mining.
For instance, it is Boyles' men who
enable the management of the great Premier mine to determine their development
program many months ahead, and to provide equipment for treating ore long before the ore is mined.
Sometimes the drill crews have to depend
upon their own initiative, as in the matter of moy-
ing their equipment into apparently inaccessible
places. At times they make a "set-up" in a spot
where a mountain goat would fear to tread. They
move in ahead of roads or even trails.
One crew had finished a job almost at the
summit of the ridge that separates Bear river
from Salmon river, having gone up from the Bear
  riverside.   They had orders to

mineral discoveries made in the
history of the province, is a eon-
viction growing among mining
men.
If ore exposed en the surface
for a length of 300 feet and with
a width of 150 feet persists to a
depth of 300 feet, as is deemed
more than possible, and if surface values persist, the block so
indicated would contain between
$10,000,000 and $20,000,000 in ore
This calculation was made at
the B.C.Chamber of Mines.
Douglas Lay, resident provincial engineer, has examined the
' property which is on Black Mt.,
8J miles from the Canadian National line. His report is commented upon in Engineering &
Mining Journal of New York as
follows:
"The deposit occurs near the
junction of the rhyolitic tuff and
andesite. The mineralized zone
is 150 feet wide and may be more
as mineralization penetrates into
the andesite. It is exposed for
300 feet along a creek and has
been traced for another 300 feet
where it disappears beneath drift
"Precious metals eccur in lenses and stringers composed chiefly of galena  and  arsenopyrite,
gold. On the surface the mineralized zone is so soft that it
may be possible to mine with a
steam shovel."

NOJED LAWYER QN
EXPLORATION TRIP
Stuart Henderson, K.C., well
known Victoria lawyer, arrived
in the city abeard the Prince
Charles yesterday afternoon on
his way to Hazelton from which
point he will leave on a 600-mile
gold seeking trip of several
weeks into central and northern
British Columbia. Mr Henderson will be accompanied on this
long trip by Simon Gun-a-noot,
the famous Indian whom he successfully defended several years
ago on a murder charge.
There are few white men in
British Columbia whose word
and counsel are respected by the
Babine Indians like that of Gun-
a-noot's lawyer. Although the
trip which they are ab^ut to undertake, is principally concerned
with a quest for minerals, undiscovered by previous prospectors,
it is rumored that Mr Henderson
has also been asked to settle differences which have caused discontent for years past among
some of the tribes.
With Gun-a-noot as guide, two
other Indians and a train of ten
pack horses, Mr Henderson will
leave Hazelton for a secret desti-
the silver probably being associa- j nation in the interior.   The law-

mation about the country he proposes to examine, and if there is
any gold he expects to find it.
He will be away about two
months on the trip.���Prince Rupert News.

British  Columbia
in
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.
I
T requires over one hundred thousand dollars for
lleer consumed in this province. Many hundreds
of thousands ol dollars ore paid hy the Brewers
annually for materials such as bottles, cooperage,
crownstoppors, labels and bottle wrappers���all of
which arc manufactured In Canada.
TIIE taxes paid by the Breweries to the Government amount to over eight hundred and
seventy thousand dollars per annum, exclusive ot
income (axes.
THE citizens of this province must rncognize the
importance of such an Industry and help to
build It up; pajrolls and Industries are building
cities and are tbe foundation of prosperity.
TIIE Amalgamated Breweries of B. C. are manufacturing good Beers, fully matured and aged,
a product recommended by physicians on account
nf its nourishing and beallh-glving qualities; these
beers contain only a very low percentage of alcohol
and therefore are tlie proper stimulant needed
when exhausted or overworked, as recognized by
medical authorities.
TIIE 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 lime hy expert

The fall activity in the stock
market is rapidly beginning to
show, nearly all the well known
Stocks showing advancement,
the most marked among these
being the Marmot Metals, which
is in very heavy demand with
practically no stock available.
The big demand for this stock
appears to come directly from
people who have seen the property. A much higher level is
expected in Marmot Metals stock
Dunwell remains steady and
it is expected to remain soft until after the last call, which becomes due on September 1.
As a whole the situation for
the fall and winter looks very
promising, and with the continued marked developments on the
working properties, it can be
safely promised that mining securities in the camp will be in
good demand from the southern
investing publie.

they could keep up.
Sometimes the drill crews are
sent to places far away from civilization. On such occasions they
have to depend entirely upon
their own resources. An instance
of this occurred on the Queen
Charlotte islands a few years
ago. In the north there are numerous small floating wharves at
places where there are not even
settlements. They are used as
convenience in getting supplies
to interior points. A diamond
drill crew was put off at one of
these and after the steamer had
gone it was found they were in
the wrong place. It was here
that the mechanical genius of
one of the men was drawn upon.
