New York that at a meeting
of the directors  there  the
regular quarterly dividend of
eight cents on the share had

Future Operations
Prospects for the Marmot Metals Mining'Co. property developing into a valuable mine are extremely bright according to the
report of Managing Director Angus McLeod presented at the annual meeting of the company.
The directors are convinced of
this and everyone who has visited the property is of the same
opinion, including a number of
field engineers representing operating companies, several of
whom have asked whether an
option for purchase could be obtained. These were given free
hand to make examinations, and
told to submit their propositions.
which would be considered by
the company.
The Marmct Metals group consists of eight claima and two
fractions, most of which
were staked in 1911 by H. C. Magee, G. W. Bruggy and   Angus
McLeod. The company was or- ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The entire face of this is in ore,
with the width of the vein not
determined. By extending this
tunnel 650 feet on the vein a
depth of 540 feet will he secured.
The ore has been traced from the
portal of this tunnel down the
hill for a distance of 1000 feet.
The ore is of good milling grade
feet on the Peach No, 2 claim,
opening up two ore shoots of
zinc blende and galena that averaged 200 oz. in silver. This
tunnel, the manager says, should
be extended 300 feet to intersect
the argillite contact which carries a cross vein of galena that
has been traced for 300 feet on
the surface. Beyond this are
two other veins that can only be
opened up by the extension of
this tunnel.
On the Montana claim a tunnel
was driven 117 feet and a crosscut 63 feet ta intersect the Montana vein. By extending this
tunnel 150 feet it would have a
^pth of 100 feet below the old
Montana workings from which
8-*ipment8 of high grade ore were
made in 1914, '15 and'16.
Surface prospecting disclosed
a number of veins all worthy of
development, including an important showing of zinc ore on
the Horseshoe claim.
Work was suspended in November and resumed May 1. 1926.

most serious problem is transportation (which is no problem
at all compared with what most
of tee leading properties in the
district have to face.) The property is reached by a wagon road
2J miles from the beach to the
forks of the river, then three
miles of horse trail to the foot of
Marmot mountain below the property, from which the camp is
reached by foot trail. The manager recommends the construction of a tramline from the camp
to the foot of the glacier, a dis-
tauce of 4000 feet, which could
be easily reached by an extension
of the present wagon road.
Under present conditions it is
not practical to carry on work
during the winter, but development, including the extension of
tunnels and more surface exploration, will resume in the spring
as soon as climatic conditions
will permit.

ENTERTAINMENT
SUPERIOR SCHOOL!COMMISSIONERS
ARE NOMINATED
Under Instructions Issued
By Inspector of Municipalities, First Incorporation Steps Are Taken
Jack Fitzgerald, superintendent of the Independence, came
down this week with samples
from the tunnel, which he sent
outside to his brother, S.P., managing director of the company.
The ore is principally zinc and
iron pyrites in a quartz gangue
and its assay value has not been
determined here, but it looks
like a good milling product.
The tunnel is now in more than
600 feet and has gained a depth
on the vein of 450 feet. A crosscut was driven showing that the
vein has a width of 12 feet.
When the tunnel has been driven
50 feet more the vein will be
crosscut again. The compressor,
Mr Fitzgerald says, is running
like a clock, and ten feet of progress is being made in the tunnel every three days.
PREPARING FOR
CHRISTMAS TREE
The annual Christmas tree
which is so eagerly anticipated
by the Stewart children, will be
given as usual under the auspices of the Loyal Order Of Moose
and will take place this year in
the United Services Club on Dec.
23. Starting at 7:30 p.m., games
and dances will be enjoyed, followed by the distribution of gifts
when Santa Claus makes his appearance at 9 o'clock.
The following convenors of
committees have been appointed
with P.S.Jack as secretary: Purchasing, Miss Kate Ryan; entertainment, Mrs W, J. Jancowski;
decoration, Mrs W.R. Tooth. A
general committee was formed
of Rev. A. W. R. Ashley and
W. R. Tooth.
An excellent and varied program was presented in the annual school concert which was
given at the United Services Club
T<fesday evening. Under the
direction of their teachers, Lee
and Roth Gordon, with Mrs G.C.
Andrew who had charge of the
singing, and with Mrs W.J. Jancowski as piano accompanist, the
children showed marked improvement over the year before,
and put much spirit and personality into the performance.
Altogether the school is te be
congratulated and it is to be
hoped the concert will be re
peated next year, drawing, as it
did, a large and appreciative
audience.
After the concluding number
the children joined with their
elders in dancing, during which
refreshments contributed by the
parents were served. Special
mention is due Mrs H. Cochrane
and Mrs G. C. Andrew who took
charge of the supper, Mrs W. H.
Watson who played for the dancing, and H. Cochrane who trained the boys for their clog-dance
in the last number; also to Margaret Jancowski for her graceful
ballet dance in the second number, which was not mentioned in
the program.

The following  letter  is self-
explanatory:
G. C. Andrew, Esq.,
Stewart, B. C.
Dear Sir-
Mr H. W. M. Rolston
has called at this office and has
left with me a petition for Incorporation on behalf of the Town
of Stewart.
I am   taking the   matter  up
with   the  Surveyor-General  in
order to get a proper outline  of
the boundaries and if the boundaries question can be satisfactorily settled as regards the details of  description  it  may   be
possible to put through the  incorporation at a very early date.
I would like, however,  to  have
from your Committee their recommendation as to who should
be the flrst  commissioners.     It
is understood that the flrst Commissioners are appointed by  the
Government and they hold office
just long enough to give time for
the details of organization. They
would be in office  probably two
months until  there  is   time  to
hold an election and select  the
Commissioners by  vote  of the
electors.
I have the honor to be,
Sir,
Your obedient servant,
Robert Baird,
Inspector of Municipalities.
In compliance with Mr Baird's
request the committee, which
was originally appointed by the
Board of Trade about a year ago
to look into the incorporation
question, and was this fall authorized by a mass meeting of
the citizens to proceed with incorporation plans, have recommended as the preliminary commissioners Messrs H. P. Gibson,
P.S. Jack and H. W. M. Rolston.
The last named, who was one of
the committee, was chosen as a
commissioner during his absence
in the south, where he went to
attend the annual meeting of the
Marmot Metals Co. and to transact some other business. He has
not yet returned but is expected
back next week.
Felix Seppi left Monday night
for Phoenix, Arizona, to join
Mrs Seppi, who has been there
for a number of months in an
effort to shake off an attack of
tuberculosis. Her many friends
here will be pleased to learn tnat
she is rapidly recovering her
health.

the better.
The "grain miners" of the prairies

them that the gold producers and manufacturers of the Dominion have been saddled with an unconstitutional income tax."

HOW TIMES CHANGE!
TAXES RETARD DEVELOPMENT
P. A. O'Farrell globe-trotter, savant,
newspaperman and mining authority, has
an interesting and instructive article in
the Financial Times of Montreal concerning the development and future prospects
of British Columbia in general and the
Port of Vancouver in particular. He says:
"The gold and silver resources of British Columbia and the Yukon are also fab-
ulously rich. In the Portland Canal area
alone more gold will be-produced in the
twentieth century than California produced in the 19th. Only one mine in this district has so far been properly equipped.
This is the Premier. It has an aerial
tramway, a 400-ton mill, and in six years
it has made net profits of more than $10,-
000,000. In addition to this sum the Dominion and British Columbia have received
several millions in income tax.
The Premier pays more income tax
than all the farmers of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba combined. Were it not
for the exhorbitant income tax policy of
the Dominion and the Province the Premier would now be milling 1200 tons of
ore daily and earning net profits of $5,000-
000 a year.
Thus, excessive income tax is choking
gold and non-ferrous metal production in
the richest mineral region of the world.
The Premier is now paying $1,600,000
in dividends, and competent engineers
who have examined its ore reserves assure
me that out of its own mines the Premier
can keep on paying dividends for the next
twenty years and most probably for a
much longer period. Its high grade ore
runs $200 to the ton. Its milling ore averages $9 in gold and 10 oz. of silver to
the ton and the concentrates pay taxes
and dividends.
In one British Columbia mine the ore
for eight feet across the vein averages $19
in gold. Its gold values are double those
ofthe Hollinger and, fully equipped, it
could produce fifteen or twenty million
dollars a year. But taxation in the Province keeps investors away and the millions necessary to equip and develop its
gold mines are not forthcoming.
In Quebec, where no income tax is
levied, gold mining development is being
pushed with extraordinary rapidity. But
in British Columbia the government grabs
10 per oent of the net smelter returns and
the Dominion filches another ten percent.
Income tax extortion explains why the
Premier does not enlarge its mill to four
or five twos its present capacity."
The above abo appeared in "Unbiased
Engaging in a political contest is no
longer a poor man's game.   There was a
time in Canada when a man with well-developed vocal cords, a  foot  or two of
whiskers, a flannel shirt,  paper collar,
butternut   fulled cloth suit, woolen 30cks.  kipp
shoes and $50 in his clothes, could win an election.
Of course he had to "raise his voice" at prayer
meeting, take the service and pound the stuffing
out of the pulpit on Sunday.   He treated the boys
at the tavern, but liquor was only 5c. and a bar
full of thirsty ones for 50c.     When he went to
Ottawa, if he had no n-=ar or distant relatives in the
city, he hired board and lodging all the way from
$1.25 to $2 a week.   He played euchre.  His booze
cost him nothing, the grafters had his jug filled
every morning provided he voted right, and he
always voted right, so right that he always returned home with more than his sessional indemnity in his clothes.   He-was a devout man, a pillar in the church, but prohibition was unheard of
except in the State of Maine, and it was generally
believed that the people of the rest of the U. S.
dumped their insane into Maine.    Possibly the
hayseeds were right.   Now it costs a candidate
over $7000 to run  in  Kootenay  West���Slocan

(Interior News, Dec. 1.)
Monday saw important developments in the negotiations conducted during the past week for
the sale of the famous Taylor dis-
 ; covery at Topley, the latest turn
indicating that al) that remains
for transferring the property to
the Standard Silver-Lead Company of Spokane is the signatures
on the dotted lines.
The latest development came
in the form of a wire from W.H.
North, general manager of the
company, requesting Mr Taylor
vinced him. An option was immediately taken on behalf of his
company and Mr North took the
first train back to recommend
immediate and unreserved acceptance by his company, as to the
outcome of which the latest wire
as outlined is eloquent.
The deal calls for the payment
of $10,000 cash by next Monday
and $300 per month on an option
for $200,000, spread over a term
of less than two years' duration.

Developments arising out of
the negotiations by Standard Silver-Lead for the Taylor property
have been startling in their display of frenzied action. It is
\ barely three weeks since B. N.
Sharp, a field engineer for the
Standard Silver-Lead, was attracted to Topley by the great
reports made by an army of engineers not so free to act. The
sensational showing made a great
impression on the engineer, who
hurried to Smithers and pressed
for a bond. This not forthcoming, he accepted a promise of no
action for ten days by the owner,
secured the terms and hurried to
I
| report to his company.
This report made the company
sit right up straight and in a
week Mr W. H. North, president
of the company, was at Topley.
He already had the result of assays on a score of samples taken
by Mr Sharp, and one look  con
ations on several properties in
that district. Mr Harris announces that the Abbotsford Lumber
and Mining Company has advar-
ced $10,000 for a program of
work to be carried out during
the winter and which is confined
largely to extending the main
tunnel on that property for another 300 feet or more.
A compressor plant has been
forwarded to the property for
the new work, which will be in
charge of Al Harris.
Sam Tretheway was recently
on an inspection trip to his property on Four Mile mountain and
is now considering some work to
open up by spring. Mr Harris
says that efforts are also being
made to continue the work on
the American Boy and the Silver
Cup and the owners of the latter
property are endeavoring to finance extensive operation for the
spring and summer of 1927.���Interior News.

Good Bee?
LIKE any other good thing, good beer has
a character, and it is this���
The flavor should be "clean" and free from yeastiness,
with an apparent but not over-pronounced hop aroma
of a delicate character. It should be free from sweetness; "drinkful," with a distinctive bite on the palate.
It should carry a firm, creamy head. Above all, it
should have a brilliancy of appearance that immediately attracts and delights the eye of the
discriminating.
Beer made for the people of British Columbia
by the Amalgamated Breweries has these
characteristics. It is a good, pure beer.

Active development work on
the Red Point property is now
well under way, states Gus Pearson, one of the contractors, who
was in Alice Arm during the
week. All supplies necessary for
the winter have been packed
through to the camp. The big
tunnel has already been driven a
distance of 15 feet. Although it
is expected that 350 feet will
haye to be driven before the big
ore body is cut, a good grade of
ore is already in evidence in the
tunnel.
The Red Point, in addition to
the Vanguard, Copper Cliff and
Homestake, was recently bonded
by Col. Victor Spencer and associates. The contract calls for
500 feet of tunnel and as much
more as the contractors can drive
before next spring. ���Alice Arm

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
As has been predicted by the
stock brokers during the past
six months, practially all the local stocks of merit are coming
into big demand, especially those
on which active development will
be started as soon as spring weather permits. The market situation during the past few weeks
is running true to form and the
experienced stock buyers are
taking advantage of the low
offerings, looking to the spring
advancement for profit.
The fact that the Premier people are entering the Marmot
River section is verifying the
interest the public has shown in
this section. Both the Marmot
Metals and Porter Idaho stocks
are showing marked enhance-,
ment in prices. Both these properties are well known, and it
can be readily expected that
their respective stocks will become very active as spring * approaches.
Reports from the management
of the Independence Gold Mines
Ltd. are very optimistic, and the
winter work under the management of Jack Fitzgerald is progressing more than favorably.
The National Silver G. S..
after the first few days of flurry
has dropped back a few points,
but by the outlook of the property this will only be for a few
days.
B. C. Silver.���A slight drop in
the market value of these shares
haa been noted during the past
few days. This has been caused
by a lack of buying orders. It is
always found that a very little
buying on the open markets always tends to strengthen the
price, as there is very little B.C.
Silver stock on the open market.
The Lakeview is beginning to
show signs of activity. A tentative bid has started on the
Vancouver market, with no stock
available, lt is rumored that
financing in England has been
successful and that operations
will start in the spring. This is
a stock that will be well worth
watching.
It is reported that the Stewart
Central Mines on  Bitter creek
are preparing to operate in  the
spring.   Verv little of this stock
is available, it being mostly held
by large shareholders in Victoria
and Vancouver.
