held last Tuesday evening. The
matter of sending an ore exhibit
to the Vancouver Exhibition
came up and it was decided that
the board would assist the Portland Canal News exhibit. Another matter dealt with was a
report that persons unknown are
continually destroying the street
lights with stones, and stealing
the knobs of the street switehes.
The board decided to offer a reward of $5, payable to anyone
giving information leading to the
apprehension of the individuals
responsible for this damage.
Two mining companies of the
district this week broke their
previous records for ore shipments. The Riverside, mining
and milling ore seven miles up
Salmon river from Hyder, on the
Alaskan side, sent out 45 tons of
concentrates on the Norco, and
the B.C.Silver shipped 230 tons
of ore on the Mogul, consigned
to the Tacoma smelter. Some of
this is bonanza ore extracted
from the winze where values of
over $3000 in gold per ton were
recently encountered.
TOO MANY SHIPS
FOR LOCAL DOCK
The usual summer activity on
the waterfront is in full swing.
The past week may be taken as
a sample of the inconvenience
our inadequate docking accommodation causes transfer companies, shipping companies, consignees and passengers. Tuesday morning, for instance, was
almost a scene of confusion with
one boat loading, another unloading and one waiting outside
to land passengers and freight.
During the week just passed,
seven boats called at this port,
consisting of three freighters belonging to the Coastwise Steamship and Barge Co.; two passenger and freight boats of the C.
N. S., and one passenger vessel
and a freighter of the Union
Steamships Co.
Last Friday the Mogul left
with 230 tons of ore from the
B.C.Silver, and Premier ore and
concentrates, Saturday the
Prince Rupert brought in 35 torn
of general freight. Sunday the
Griffco arrived with 69,000 feet
of lumber and timbers for the
Dunwell Co., four tons of diamond drilling machinery for
Lynch Bros, and 1200 boxes of
powder, coa! and ore sacks for
the Premier mine; she left Tuesday night loaded with Premier

for the B.C.Silver and 25 tons of

boxes of powder for the Dunwell
"and coal for the Crawford Co.
The same morning the Prince
Charles offloaded 155 bales of
hay for Jack Rennie, who is
packing on Marmot river, and
six tons of general merchandise.
Thursday the Marmion called for
Premier ore.
In addition to these boats the
Anyox is expected today with
100,000 feet of lumber for the
Dunwell.
CELEBRATION  _
ON LABOR DAY
Hospital Board Will Ask All
Organizations to Unite in
Effort to Prevent Hospital
From Closing
At the regular meeting of the.
Hospital Board held this week,
two new members were reported
as having joined the Association,
Wm. Forrest and F.E. Gigot.
A letter from the Board of
Trade was read, asking the Association's approval to a suggested plan of building a morgue on
the hospital grounds. The secretary was requested to reply
setting forth some objections
and making counter proposals.
The financial statement disclosed a situation which called
for some serious consideration.
The fact that patients' fees due
to the hospital more than covered its indebtedness, did not solve
the problem of meeting the sum
of $500 already overdue for current expenses.
The Board were unanimous
that unless this debt was met
a meeting of the Association
would have to be called to
consider the advisability of
closing the hospital.
Many plans were submitted
for raising money, some of which
will be put into effect; meanwhile
it was decided to make a big celebration on Labor Day on behalf
of the hospital.     The  secretary
was asked to solicit the co-operation of all business   and   social
organizations in town in this respect and invite each of them to
appoint a committee to meet the
board and discuss the project.
The public organizations in
Hyder, Alaska, are also to be appealed to for assistance in reducing the debt, on the grounds that
many patients had been taken in
from the Alaskan side of the line
on the same footing as Canadians

WILL REOPEN
RUBY SILVER
W.D.Brown of Vancouver has
arrived to take charge of re-opening the Ruby Silver property
pending the return of A. W.
Payn LeSueur, who is at present
in England arranging finances.
The Ruby Silver is located on
Mosquito creek about 12 miles
up Bear river, and has had considerable tunnel work done upon
it.
Mr Brown is also interested in
the Dalhousie and Rocks of Ages
groups opposite the outlet of Bitter creek. A crew of men under
Geo. Cameron and W.A. Pratt is
nearing the completion of a trail
which will enable the Dalhousie
company to properly exploit their

very promising.

adjoining the Cantu, left for Seattle last Saturday.     He  spent
his time while here  prospecting
the ground, and only last   week
discovered a very large body of
quartz-porphyry,     identical    in
character with the Cantu, carrying gold values running from $17
to $40 to the ton.    In the   short
time available Mr   Hallum   was
unable to determine either  the
width or length of this showing,
but estimated the width   at   100
feet.    He was much   impressed
also by the   formation   and   the
manner in which   the   dyke lay
ready to be broken by quarrying.
His original plan of driving] a
crosscut tunnel 200  feet  below
the present  tunnel,   to  tap his
high-grade vein at depth, will be
carried out by Emil Olson,   who
is taking a contract for 100 feet,
pending Mr Hallum's return later
in the season.
Company's operations, work on
their property, which adjoins the
B.C.Silver on the north, is commencing to speed up. The new
60-horse power full diesH engine,
compressing 320 cubic feet of air
per minute, was turned over on
July 4th and is giving every satisfaction. The air lines have
been laid and machine drills are
now in use in the tunnel, which
is already in about 150 feet. This
tunnel has for its object the cutting of the quartz-porphyry zene
in its northerly extension from
the Premier and B.C.Silver mines
and in which the B.C.Silver last
winter opened a very valuable
ore deposit near their northern
boundary.
James Lee, the veteran blacksmith, has returned from South
Port Mann, where he spent the
winter. ���

$700,000 IN DEVELOPMENT
The mining industry in the Portland
Canal district is this year making: greater
progress than ever before in its history-
While there is possibly not as much noise
as there has been in times past, this to a
great extent is due to the fact that, for
lack of capital, a number of the smaller
operations are temporarily closed down.
Nevertheless heavier development than
ever is being undertaken on a number of
properties, and a great deal is being spent
in equipment that more than compensates.
Seven hundred thousand dollars, or
nearly three-quarters of a million, is estimated by conservative local authorities as
the amount this year being expended
throughout every section of the district in
development and equipment���truly a goodly sum for any district in one year���a sum
that means real progress; but better still,
there is every promise at the moment that
as great a sum will be spent next year,
and every year for years to come, these expenditures being justified, as is now the
case, by the previous years' work and results obtained. The current of real progress in mining in this district is commencing to run strong and deep in a wide
channel of prosperity.
THE MINING ENGINEER
well consider carefully.
"Examining engineers know that it
is now difficult to find suitable properties
for recommendation to their principals.
The result is that more careful and painstaking work is now necessary by the examining engineer. Examination of a prospect must now consist of a great deal
more than taking an average sample and
measuring the ore exposed. While it may
not be literally possible to look into the
ground, the engineer must carefully
weigh all the geologic and other evidence,
and from the available information make
at least an intelligent guess as to what
lies under the surface."
There are bankers who cannot recognize a moral risk and degenerate into glorified pawnbrokers and thereby become of
small value to the community life. There
are also mining engineers who guard their
professional reputations with such zeal
that they lose them by having their judgment reversed by miners who have practical experience and a willingness to back
their judgment. On the other hand there
are many engineers who, while they main- _
tain due professional caution do not hesitate to recommend good prospects as such.
We do not wish to be understood as
advocating that our mining engineers become merely visionary. That would kill
their usefulness as completely as many of
them have now killed it by an excess of
caution. There is a happy medium as numerous engineers of the highest professional standing have demonstrated. The
ability to recognize a good prospect and lay out
the best method of development is the chief requirement of the engineer in a country such as
ours and for his own sake as well as that of his
employer and his district he should be fully as
cautious about turning down a property as he is
about recommending it.

by the entire community demonstrated in no uncertain terms what can he done in any undertaking when everyone puts his shoulder to the wheel.
It is safe to say that never in its history has
Stewart witnessed such a splendid celebration as
was staged on July 1st under perfect weather
conditions, establishing a record that should be
lived up to in all future celebrations.

The expedition of the   Allotte
Mining  Company,    which   left
Vanderhoof late in  the   winter
for the Manson Creek section  of
| the Omineca district, did not get
! through,    owing   to   the  earl.\
: spring.   Their outfit  is   cache-
'about 90 miles from their objec-
; tive poir.f.    As long as the frost
andjjsnov. remained,   going   was
good, and had the  winter   been
! the usual length, the party would
have been mining on the ground
this season.   The  Hudson   Bay
factor at Fort St. James, situated at the southern end of Stuart
lake, stated that   this   was   the
earliest spring in 200 years,   according to the records at the fort.
It is proposed to make an early start next winter and get  in
before the heavy snowfalls block
the route.     After  caching  the
outfit a run in was made  and   it
was found that it will be an easy-
matter to get in next winter.
When the expedition left Vancouver at the latter end of last
February, the outfit consisted of
a carload of mining machinery,
including a dragline outfit, boiler
arid engine, sawmill and the necessary tools, and a season's supply of foodstuffs and camp equipment, weighing in all 58,000 lbs,
In addition there were seven No.
5 logging sleighs and a full
crawler Graham tractor.

Government Road Work
The Government this week put
on a crew of men for the completion of the Dunwell road. The
road work on Marmot river is
progressing very well, so also is
that on the upper end of the
Bear river road which, when
complete will give a first class
road from Stewart to well along
Bear lake. Next season the
Muddy Gulch situation will be
dealt with.

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
The whole tenor of the market
this week is very soft, with one
or two exceptions.
Dunwell, which for no apparent reason commenced to slide
some little time ago, continued
to still lower levels. B.C.Silver,
and even Premier, dropped a
few points also. At present
prices all three of these stocks,
and particularly Dunwell, should
prove very attractive.
Independence strengthened a
point this week and appears to
be in strong demand.
Marmot Metals which has, in
spite of dull markets, steadily
climbed for the past few weeks,
continued to gain ground during
the week.
The market closed as follows:
