INDEPENDENCE
WILL HAVE MILL
Comprehensive Program of
Development and Operation Will be Carried Out
By New Interests
Chas. Durrwachter, mining en
g\neer, graduate of   Heidelberg j Trail smelter
University, who for the past 35
years has been intimately connected with mining in the western section of the United States
and southern British Columbia,
made the unequivocal statement
to the News that he is going to
buy control ef the Independence
mine for his principals, who are
eastern American mining capitalists.
"With the judicious expenditure of money," he said, "the
Independence will become a big
mine. There is everything in
its favor���water power available
for milling, facilities for cheap
miniug, and great ore bodies."
Mr Durrwachter, accompanied
by his son, E.W., also a mining
engineer, spent a week examining the property, in company
with S. P. Fitzferald, managing
director of the Independence
mining company, and Jack Fitzgerald, who has had charge of
development work. The weather
was perfect for their purposes,
and Mr Durrwachter said they
are taking out complete maps,
not only of the underground
workings, but of the surface exposures, which have been traced
frem an elevation of 3700 feet
down to within 800 feet of the
Bear river.
"You can say," he said, "that
for the amount of money they
had to spend, the Fitzgeralds
have done a wonderful amount
of work. I am going to leave
Jack in charge until spring driving ahead on the ore body he
has opened up in the face of the
main tunnel, for a distance of
150 or 200 feet. In the spring I
will outline a comprehensive
working policy, which will include opening up the ore bodies
from lower elevations and constructing a mill of sufficient capacity to take care of the initial
output, but built on the unit
principle so that it can be enlarged as occasion requires."
The deal with Mr Durrwachter
is subject to confirmation by a
meeting of shareholders which
will be held in Victoria October
28. The contract made by the
Fitzgeralds will be confirmed.
and some of the original Victoria
shareholders, who "got in on the
ground floor" and then sold out
for what they could get, will be
subject to mal de mer.
Jack  Fitzgerald   expects   to
PORTER IDAHO
MAKING GOOD
Five tons of $300 ore are coming down daily to the Marmot
river landing from the Porter
Idaho mine, and 20 tons are going out each Sunday on the CN.
R. ship to be transhipped at Vancouver on the C.P.R. railway to
Returns from the
first shipment of 40 tons received
this year by the smelter amounted to $265 per ton. but this shipment contained a quautity of ore
from the old workings, which
does not grade as high as the
vein now being opened up. Jack
Rennie, who has the packing
contract, is crowding on all the
horses he can secure, and bringing down more than the ship will
take out, but the extra sacks accumulate at the Marmot float
and can be handled at any time,
while packing from the mine
must necessarily cease in from
two to three weeks' time.
When the weather makes it
physicaily impossible to work on
the surface of the new vein,
from which the shipmentr are
being made, the crew will be
transferred to underground development, which can be carried
on throughout the winter. Every
week of good weather now
means more than $5000 quick
cash to the treasury of the Porter Idaho company.
LEASING ON
THE TERMINUS
George Bacon and Ernest Mus-
tow were down this week from
the Terminus, where they have
a lease on the north drift from
the main tunnel, and report that
they have in the neighborhood
of 100 sacks of high-grade ere
ready to pack down. Their trip
into town was primarily to secure pack horses tu take this ore
out, but when they learned the
price of silver, which is at the
lowest point for a number of
years, they did not contract for
the packing.
The ore they have sacked, and
will continue to mine and sack,
should give returns of about 300
ounces in silver to the ton.
PROSPERITY IS
OWNER'S MINE
Although the valleys are experiencing "Indian Summer"
weather after a week of rain,
work in the hills anywhere above
the 4000-foot elevation is already
hampered by snow, at least as
far as outside operations are concerned, and above the 5000, further work is out of the question.
Jancowski, Davis & Watland
stayed with their high-grade
mining on the Prosperity group
as long as human beings could
stand it. They were digging and
sacking ore that runs more than
$300 per ton without sorting and
carries some of the most spectacular deposits of native silver ever
discovered in the Portland Canal
district, and the incentive to keep
on working was strong; but three
feet of snow on the ground, and
the air full of whirling icy particles all the time, was stronger,
especially as their only shelter
was a tent, through every small
opening of which the snow sifted
The vein was discovered only
this fall, but the owners have
taken out between 25 and 30 tons
of ore which will be shipped to
Trail smelter as seon as it is all
assembled at the beach. The
Marmot float, constructed last
summer, is now entirely inadequate to the requirements of the
Marmot section, and puts the
operators to the extra expense
of handling their ore once more
than would be necessary if a
wharf were available.

start operations about November 1. All equipment is on the
ground, and only the necessary
supplies will have to be taken
up. Since he put the machinery
in through 20 feet of snow, he is
not worrying about keeping the
cook satisfied.
RUSH COLUMBIA
CONTROL SOLD
Victoria-The block of 444,000
shares in the Rush-Columbia
silver mines at Stewart, B. C,
which have been in litigation before the courts here and in Van
couver for the past year, were
bought by R.F.Castle, when put
up at auction by Sheriff Goggin.
With the purchase of the shares
goes the control and majority
ownership of the mines. The
shares, until seized by the sheriff
on court orders, were the property of W. W. Rush and A. L,
Bagg.
A Vancouver financial house
it was announced, is associated
with Mr Castle in the purchase
of the Rush-Columbia control,
which is a factor in a large mining amalgamation involving the
L&L Glacier Creek, controlled
by Gillespie, Hart & Todd, the
Union Silver, the Rush-Columbia, and possibly some ether adjacent small properties which
are to be brought together in a
development scheme to rival the

PUSHING ALONG
AT JJNWELL
Flotation machinery for the
Dunwell mill has arrived and is
now at the mill, where everything is ready for its installation.
Nearly all the balance of the
machinery is on the way with
the exception of that required
for the new power plant. Hugo
Stratford, formerly master mechanic at Premier, arrived Sunday to take up his duties as master mechanic at Dunwell.
Very heavy rock work has been
encountered in the excavation
for the new hydro power plant.
This work is now about complete
however. All the towers for the
tram have been erected, the lower terminal completed, and the
tram-head building is nearing
completion, The cable is being
strung as rapidly as possible and
is now nearly half up.
Conditions in the mine are
very good. The raises and chutes
for ore extraction are nearly all
completed through from the No.
4 level to the surface, a distance
in elevation, ba the dip, of some
750 feet. In the course of this
work some of the ore encountered between levels exceeded expectations. All the outside work
is now completed, and a year's
run of ore.is ready for treatment
by the mill. Lloyd C. White, of
trje firm of Birsh, Hearshey &
White, who have planned the
mill and are superintending its
construction, has arrived and
will spend some time at the mine.
Osborne Receives Honors
Freleigh Fitz Osborne, who
spent the summer this year with
the government geological survey in the Marmot and Bear
river sections of this district,
has been awarded a fellowship
by Yale University Mr Osborne
is continuing his studies by taking a post graduate eourse at
that institution. Mr Osborne,
who is a native son of British
Columbia, was educated in the
public and high schools of Vancouver, taking his B.A.Sc. in
mining engineering, and M. A.Sc.
in geological engineering, at the
University of British Columbia.
For the past four years he has
been engaged in field work for
the Geological Survey of Canada.

NEW FIND ON
THE MARMOT
C.W. Magee this week brought
in some samples of ore from a
new discovery he has made in
the Marmot river section on his
"North Slope" group, located
this fall. The claims lie below
and north of the Stimulator and
Panhandle groups, on which sensational values in gold were obtained a few weeks ago.
The North Slope ere is galena
and zinc in a gangue of quartz-
porphyry, and looks interesting.
The vein appears to be from 3��
to 4 feet wide, but its lateral extent has not been traced.
INCORPORATION
NEXTTUESDAY
Next Tuesday night, October
26, at 8 o'clock in Moose Hall,
the citizens of this town will decide the question of incorporation.
GOOD RESULTS
ON SILVER TIP
This Season's Development
Has Greatly Advanced the
Property Toward the Production Stage
Work on the Silver Tip has
been suspended for this season,
with the exception of a contract
being carried on for a tunnel to
tap the "May P.J." vein, which
is being driven by Dan Wood-
more and Patsey Ilogan, recognized as being two of the best
hand miners of the camp. This
contract, it is estimated, should
reach its objective in about'30
days.
There are two main ore zones
crossing the Silver Tip property,
and the work this summer was
principally confined to the north
zone. Here three east and west
veins have been traced out,
cutting into the "Big Ledge,"
which strikes north and south
and appears to be the mother
lode of the zone. This big vein
was determined only this year,
and has been opened up in four
places by surface cuts.
A tunrtel was driven on the
No. 1 vein of the east and west
series of the north zone, for a
distance of 102 feet. At the
face it was breaking into a strong
body of quartz, and J. V. Clegg,
the manager, said he was disappointed that he could not have
put in another week or two driving this tunnel ahead. At 40
feet from the portal a cresscut
was run which tapped the vein
at a depth on the dip of 70 feet.
The vein here is five feet wide
and runs high in silver, carrying
both native and argentite. The
vein here was sampled by an independent operator of the camp,
who obtained values of more
than 300 ounces in silver.
Some work was done on the
No. 2 vein, which widened from
four inches on the surface to 2\
feet at a depth of ten feet. The
values however are not as high
as in the No. 1 vein, though of
good milling grade.
"You are accused of calling
the plaintiff a liar, a sour faced
old dodo and a thief. Is that
true?"
"Yes, your Honor, it's true."
"Be Kind to Animals Week"
is coming soon, and we promise
our readers not to say a single
mean thing about the Government during that week.
You saw that play, what did
you think of it?"
"Oh, I liked it, but really it is
hardly a play to which a girl
could take her mother."

BATING AT THE MOON
^^B *--*- *S8Ue ��* Northwest  Mining  Ser
vice dated Oct. 6, carries a very amusing
attack on Dale L. Pitt, manager of the
Premier mine, purporting to have been
forwarded by "Oar Special Representative" under date of Sept. 18th.
In a former issue of the News we questioned the genuine existence in this district of such special representative for this
notorious house organ. He knows nothing
���f the geography of the district nor the
location of the mining claims, and has
paraded this ignorance in such a way as
to make himself and the imitation newspaper which he purports to represent, the
laughing stock of those who, out of idle
curiosity, occasionally read the rag.
However, we are now inclined to credit his existence, ignorant though he be,
for several reasons. In the first place,
from the familiar way he writes he may
be someone whose employment keeps him
very dose to the Premier operation and
underground workings, yet more convincing than this is the trend of this second
article attacking Premier, for it would appear from it that Mn Pitt must have committed the unpardonable offence of in
some way or another stepping on this
mythical correspondent, or to say the
least, hurting his feelings. Perhaps he
wanted promotion and Mr Pitt thought
someone else was more capable, which
could quite possibly happen, even though
that this individual, who like all spys,
keeps his identity secret, tried to take
whiskey up to the camp and naturally got
into trouble; or, if this masquerading gentleman is not actually employed at Premier, it is possible he wanted Mr Pitt to
do something for him and was refused.
"Amusing" we hare called this attack
and advisedly so, for the management of
the Premier Mine is vested in the American Smelting and Refining Co., whose
success in mining is proverbial and requires no comment on our part.   The fact
that the management is in the hands of
this great mining corporation should in
itself be sufficient rebuttal to any derogatory remarks published in a biased stock
boosting circular.     One thing goes, or
should go, without saying, that if Mr Pitt
is not an efficient manager tbe people who
are employing him would very quickly find
| someone to take his place.
Another phase, and one the subterranean rat and the organ that acknowledges
him seem to have overlooked, is that within the past year Premier has more than
doubled its equipment for the treatment
and handling of ore, which certainly would
not have been done if the Premier is a
short lived mine, such as this Spokane

! house organ would have its readers believe
it to be. If its publishers and "Special
Representative" are such capable mining
men as to be capable of criticizing the
Premier management, a pose they appear
to delight in assuming, the wonder is to
us that the A. S. & R. and other large
mining corporations would allow such effi
cient mining ability to run to seed writing
and publishing articles. Surely they must
soon take this material into their organizations, otherwise they are, we fhculd
think in danger of going into bankruptcy.
We hold no brief for the Premier mine nor
for Dale L. Pitt, its manager. We have, in fact,
criticized the latter, on a matter of policy, during
a strike originating on the tram line construction
several years ago. But we have never questioned
his ability as general manager of a great mining
operation, one that stands unique for the speedy
" success it has attained. The Port
land Canal News has been published weekly for more than
I seven years right here in the vicinity of the Premier. We have
the best opportunity of seeing
first-hand everything that is
going on in regard to its operation. We would consider any
question as to the wisdom of the
course followed by the A.S. & R.
in its development as presump-
ticus and beyond the scope of a
newspaper that is published for
the good of the district.
Have mistakes been made at
the Premier? It is net for a
stock circular, published in the
U.S.A., to pass a judgement that
will carry weight with thinking:
people, Results speak for them
selves.
If Mr Pitt has read the attack
made upon him, (we have not
aaked him about it) he probablj
did so with a tolerant smile. As
for Northwest Mining Service,
is it not funny, (though annoying to the neighbors) how little
curs like to yap at the moon?

New Westminster���Losses in
mining in North America have
been less than in banking activities, declared Aid. Frank Wood-
side of Vancouver, president of
the British Columbia Chamber
of Mines, in addressing the Gyro
Club here.
"lf you look into the possibilities of the different mining companies in this province," said
the speaker, "you will find many
opportunities to make good, safe
investments. In the 30 years of
lode mining in this province
greater strides have been made
than in-any other part of the
world." -
In mining British Columbia
could cairn some world records,
said Aid. Woodside. The greatest deposit of eopper known in
the British Empire existed in the
Britannia mine, while the largest silver, lead and zinc mine in
the world is the Sullivan, and
the Premier mine's production
of more than $9,000,000 dividends in five years is also a
record.
Aid. Woodside declared that
the Pertland Canal district is going ahead rapidly, and satisfactory reports were being received
from the Smithers and Hazelton
districts. The speaker stressed
the need of every aid to prospectors, who ara  undoubtedly  the
moat important men to the  min-
I
ing industry. As the prospector's knowledge is advanced, the
mining industry is furthered. He
pointed out that only one-tenth
of the province has been prospected so far, and that the great
You can't blame a married
man for counting his pennies.
They're all he has.
GRANBY CO.'Y
RAISES OUTPUT
The construction and rehabilitation campaign quietly carried
on by the Granby Consolidated
Mining, Smelting & Power Co.
during the last two or three years
will be fully completed within
the next three months, as a result of which the properties are
showing a substantial increase
in earning power and appreciably
lower costs, says the Wall Street
Journal. This improvemement
has attracted the attention of a
Boston group of mining men who
have recently bought a large
block of stock and will soon be
given representation on the
board.
> Granby, with its 99.88 per cent
owned subsidiary, the Allenby
Copper Co., has an annual production capacity of 55,000,000 to
60,000,000 pounds of copper without unduly crowding operations.
Compared with other mining
companies, Granby has an extraordinary high poundage of annual ptoduction per share of
stock outstanding, of which there
are at present 344,803 shares.
On this basis there is an annual
producing capacity of between
160 to 170 pounds of copper a
share, a poundage believed to be
equalled by only one other producer in North and South America.
Assuming all of the $2,500,000
1 per cent debentures were converted there would then be outstanding 444,803 shares, on which
basis the annual producing capacity per share would be between
120 and 130 pounds of copper.

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston A Co)
The mining market continues
to be very active and outside
capital is becoming more and
more iuterested in local properties.
It is reported on very good
authority that control of the Independence is taken over by American capital. The Stock Exchange bears this out by the fact
that the stock is coming into
very strong demand.
No one seems to be able to diagnose the cause of the remarkable drop in Dunwell. Reports
from the mine are more than
favorable, and construction of
the mill, tram and power plant
is proceeding rapidly. The machinery for the mill is arriving,
and the installation engineer is
on the ground. The only reason
we can give is that the investing
public are listening to a lot of
absurd rumors. Next to the
Premier the Dunwell is the
next property in line to pay dividends.
Porter Idaho during the past
few weeks has come into active
demand and tbe stock is steadily
advancing in price.
The Premier market remains
verv low but as far as' can be
learned this has nothing to do
with actual conditions at the
mine, and it is stated that the
regular dividends are to continue. It must be remembered that
the Premier holds some 38 per
cent of B.C.Silver stock. This
alone is an immense asset.
As has been mentioned before,
the Marmot River section is becoming very much in the public
eye, and much more so lately by
the exceptionally good reports
from the Marmot Metals, the
Porter Idaho and the Jancowski-
Davis properties. The latter two
are shipping some exceptionally
high grade ore. It is confidently
expected that all Marmot river
stocks will be in heavy demand.
