GRANT MAHOOD
TELLSOF EAST
Pioneer Operator Finds the
East Ignorant Regarding
Portland Canal���He Has
Made Fine Connections
Grant Mahood. one of the pioneers of this camp, returned on
the Cardena Monday night from
New York, Boston and Toronto,
where he has been for some
time. It will be remembered
that Mr Mahood is one of the
original developers of the Salmon river section of this district,
being associated with 0. B. Bush
in the early days of Premier.
B.C.Silver and National Silver,
now Sebakwe, the bringing of
which properties to their present
status was greatly due to the
efforts of these two men.
Mr Mahood. having been connected in years past, in their initial stages, with some of the
big successes of the district, and
having recently spent some
months in the east on business
in connection with his interests
here, it was expected that he
would have a story foreshadowing considerable development,
but on being interviewed he was
very reticent in committing himself to any statements of his future plans.
Speaking, however, of conditions as he found them in the
east, he asserted that there is no
lack of money for legitimate
mining speculation and investment, but British Columbia, being far removed fiom the big
money centres of the east, has
very severe competition in Northern Ontario, where some wonderful successes have been obtained during the past ten years,
handicapping this province to an
extent to which its mining possibilities and future are nearly
completely overshadowed, the
only operation known to the average investing Easterner being
the Consolidated Smelters.
The Premier mine of this district, with its dividend-breaking
record of some $10,000,000 in a
little better than six years, on
an average daily ore production
of some 400 tons, being practically unknown east of the Rockies, except to a few, and then
only to those in close touch with
the industry.
There is no doubt, he stated,
as to the great possibilities of
this camp, but what it needs is
money for development. Before
this can be obtained, however,
we have to meet and overcome
the competition of the East,
which can only be done by
greater publicity.
In speaking of his own  inter-

HYDER LEAD HAS
A GOODttASON
It is reliably reported that the
operation of the Hyder Lead
Mines Ltd. has been financed in
London.
This property is situated at the
head of Texas creek, and on it
occur important outcrops of high
grade galena.
Exploration of this property
was undertaken this summer under the direction of R.G. Mellin.
Work accomplished this season
consisted of the establishment of
a camp at an elevation of 3500

ROAD SURFACING
i
New equipment arrived for
the local department of public
works last week, in the form of
a drag line scraper, with a capacity of half a yard, with its attendant accessories for digging and
loading gravel for the roads. The
principle of the machine, if it
can be called such, is a high line,
which is a sort of a track, with a
haul and haul-back cable, the
whole operated by a gas engine.
The scraper is pulled back beyond where it is to dig the gravel, and then pulled ahead into
it, its teeth enabling it to dig in
and load. It is then brought
ahead until the points are lifted
up by the high-line track, and so
up onto a constructed loading
table, from which a truck can
load by a trip.
It is the hope of the local officials to gravel the road between
Stewart and the dock before
snow.
The loader is being rigged at
Rainey's creek, just south of the
road. In the spring it will probably be set up near the Bear
river bridge, loading gravel from
the river bed into bunkers, for
use on the roads. Needless to
say, this uew addition to the
local equipment will greatly
cheapen road graveling, and thus
enable more construction and
surfacing work to be done than
hertofore.
MARMOT METALS
ANNUAL MEETING
The second annual general
meeting of the Marmot Metals
Mining Co. will be held in Moose
Hall on Thursday afternoon,
Nov. II, at which will be submitted what is understood to be a
most satisfactory report of the
season's development.
It is the reported intention of
the management to recommend
that no more treasury stock be
sold except at materially increased prices. The following appears in the notice sent out by
the company: "Subject to the
approval of this (Stewart) meeting, and in order to give all
shareholders a clear conception
of the situation, and appreciation
of developments, it is suggested
that this meetiug grant adjournment to Vancouver on the 26th
inst." Such action, it is reported, is recommended by the management and directors.
RIVERSIDE NOW
GREATJUCCESS
The Riverside mine is now embarked on a winter's program of
development. During the past six
weeksfthe mill has operated with
complete success, producing a
table concentrate of an average
grade of 77 per cent lead and a
float concentrate of 55 per cent
lead, with gold and silver values
running*the total average value
of the concentrates up to $143
per ton. During the month of
October 85 tons of this product
were produced.
Total shipments of concentrates from the Riverside mill
for the year to date are 219J tons
and there remain at the mill
about 50 tons to be sent out.
The metallurgical problem of
eliminating the pyrite and so
raising the grade of the concentrates has been solved, and the
cause of tailings losses has been
found and corrected. During
this period exploration of the
surface around the mine workings has been carried on, resulting in the exposure of important
outcrops of the vein. The surface outcrops of commercial ore
adjacent to the mine range from
four to nine feet in width. Development of these during the
winter will be in charge of Jas.
Hewitt, the mine foreman. The
mine will be visited each month
by R.G.Mellin, who recently has
been in charge of operation.

BOARD OF TRADE
CONSIDER TOURISTS
At the Board of Trade meeting held last Tuesday night there
was considerable discussion concerning the question introduced
at a previous meeting by J. W.
Stewart, in connection with the
construction in this district of
tourist roads, and the extension
of the Bear river road for this
purpose. The committee appointed submitted the letter drafted
to Dr. Sutherland,  Minister of
Public Works,
Mr Stewart, while in the south
recently, took up the matter with
very satisfactory results, to the
end that the Department will undertake the work if the town of
Stewart will make an effort to
get the tourist trade.

MATHEW LODGE
GOOD BOOSTER
The Portland Canal district
has, without doubt, a very
staunch friend in Mr Mathew
Lodge, a director of the Canadian National Railways from the
Maritime Provinces, as demonstrated in the following extract
from a letter recently received
from him in connection with the
second meeting of the Empire
Mining Congress. Mr Lodge in
his letter, dated Moncton, N.B.,
Oct. 11th, says:
"A few days ago, when in
Montreal, I discussed with Mr
George C. MacKenzie, General
Secretary of the 'Second Empire
Mining and Metallurgical Congress' meeting to be held in Canada in the mid-summer of 1927,
the advisability of the whole or
a section of the Congress including in their itinerary the Portland Canal Mining District, and
Mr MacKenzie advised me that
the Canadian Council had the
matter under consideration, and
that he thought arrangements
would be made to visit the Portland Canal district.
"I think your Board of Trade
should send a strong invitation
urging upon Mr MacKenzie the
necessity of including your district in the itinerary. I shall do
my best to persuade them."
Mr Lodge then goes on to
state that he is concluding some
arrangements in New York
which may necessitate his making another visit this year to
Stewart. He then hints at another significant move that he is
making with prospects of success, which will be of prime importance to this district, and concludes his letter with the assurance that he will at all times be
only too pleased to assist, in any
way within his power, the development of this district.

INCORPORATION
MANY years ago on the prairies, so
the story goes, there was a faithful and
willing old work horse who day after day,
year in and year ont, went to his work of
clearing land, plowing and generally giving of his labors for the betterment and
production of things, never expecting and
never getting any thanks.
Time and again as he worked in the
fields coyotes would appear on the hills
about and "yap, yap yap" at him as he
worked. "You fool, what are you doing
there? Yap yap. You are doing it all
wrong! Yap, pap yap You are a grafter!
Yap yap. We wont let you do it for you
are going to get something out of it! Yap
yap yap. That is the most foolish thing
to do that we have ever heard of!"
"Alright," said the horse, "suppose
you come over here and help me do it better; or you can do it and I will help you."
"Yap, yap, yap yap, said the coyotes.
You are a fool; we don't like yon; you have
an axe to grind; you are a grafter; and if
you do that we will spoil it when it gets
dark and you are not around. Yap, yap,
yap, yap yap;" and away they ran, to come
around next day and repeat their performance.
For years past, comparatively a handful of people in Stewart have been devoting free, a great deal of time and considerable money in order to maintain such
services as the fire department, cemetery,
hospital and other such public necessities.
In addition, these people have given freely
of their time and money for the advancement ef Stewart and the district, asking
for no thanks nor appreciation, but, just
as the horse, only for assistance. Like
the horse, they have been accused by those
who, on every possible occasion, have re-
DIAMOND DRILLING  CONTRA TORS

fused or sidestepped doing anything themselves for the district, of every conceivable
charge of which a malicious mind is capable, and in this way, on the sidewalks,
and when their backs were turned, every
��� | possible obstacle was placed in their way.
Good, healthy criticism has  always
been welcomed and is necessary to real
progress;   but   irresponcible statements
made on the street corners and other such
places, deducted from incorrect information, and without a thorough study or investigation of the question, or without having attended
meetings conyened for the purpose of giving information and discussing the question, is destructive criticism, which, if allowed to predominate,
will not only retard the development of Stewart,
but the entire district.
At the moment the expense of lighting the
streets of Stewart is borne by the Board of Trade,
with its 15 or 20 members. These few people,
then, benefit everybody in town. What thanks
do they get?
The work and cost of what has been done in
the cemetery has likewise been borne by a handful of people, for the benefit of all.
The expense and work of the fire department
has been and is being borne by a mere handful of people, for the benefit of all. Every fire
that has occurred, without exception where chemicals are used, has cost this handful of people
$25, in addition to a lot of work and often ruined
clothes. Most of these fires have been in outlying residences.
Now, then, the question ia, why should even
a section or portion of the commuuity expect
these burdens to be indefinitely borne by a few?
Why should they not be willing, providing it does
not increase taxation, as can be the case, to support incorporation, and allow these burdens to be
equally borne by all, in proportion to their interests in the town?
Why should they not be perfectly willing to
support a policy that retains the money that we
at present pay the Government, in the town, for
these very necessary services, for sidewalks, and
improvement of used side streets? Can it be that
these people do not want progress? Certain it is
that every opportunity has been given them in
meetings etc. to point out any bad features that
they may imagine exist. Time and again they
have been asked to assist in investigating the
question for these bad features, Certain it is that
every question they have raised has been investigated, and found to either not exist as an objection, or to not be a detriment.
The majority of the Committee investigating the question were at the outset opposed to
the idea, but on investigation have become strong
supporters of it. This fact should be a recommendation. Another fact that should be a recommendation is that the majority of the largest
taxpayers, after proper examination, are also in
favor of it, which they most certainly would never
have been if it would increase taxation, or be
detrimental.
The cemetery, fire department, street light-
ing, improvements in sanitary
conditions, sidewalks and side
street improvements can bo better taken care of under incorporation than by the present unfair
and voluntary haphazard system,
without necessarily increasing
taxation. No one will be able to
dictate, and everyone will have
an equal say.

On September 17 we reported

been left there for at least ten

sufficient for a summer's prospecting on the Naas slope, their
idea being that the glacier formed an easy entry.
Shortly after leaving the foot
of the glacier they were forced,
owing to the soft snow and steepness of the ice, to leave a large
hand sleigh and eommence batk
packing, arriving at the point
where the things were found
this summer. While in camp a
large snow slide came down behind them that failed the entire
valley; this, in conjunction with
a teriffic snow storm that continually raged, cansed them to
abandon their venture, and in
order to get out they lightened
their packs by discarding the
things found. On their return
to the mouth of Sutton river they
fouud that their boat was gone,
so had to make  a  raft,  which,

Brewing is an
important
industry in
British Columbia
I~\EW citizens give thought'towhat the Brewing
'  Industry means to British Columbia, as an
industry, yet it is an important factor in the
industrial life of this province.
v
It is not necessary to emphasize the millions of
dollars invested in the brewing industry in this
province. The thing that must not be lost sight of
is that there are hundreds of men employed throughout the year in the making, storing and transporting
of the products of the breweries of British Columbia.
Breweries are constantly improving and keeping
modern their plants. The Amalgamated Breweries
of British Columbia have spent over $300,000 in the
last few months for improvements aud equipment.
Breweries are an important customer of the farmers
of British Columbia, their purchases of grain and
hops running into huge figures each year. There
is no British Columbia industry that spends more
of its total income right in this province than the
brewing industry.
The brewing industry brings large sums of money
into the province. British Columbia beer is attracting
attention abroad for its purity and high quality.
Export markets in Australasia, China and India,
are constantly growing.
British Columbia beers are winning their way in
these countries in direct competition with beers from
Great Britain, Germany and Czecko-Slovakia. They
are winning their way on quality and they are
powerful advertisements for this province.
Facts like these are not romantic, but they are
important and should be considered by every
citizen. They are not commonly mentioned by
those whose business it is to attempt to destroy
thc brewing industry in their determination that
the people of British Columbia shall be prevented
from enjoying a pure and healthful beverage in
an open and above board manner.
Proof of the high quality of the beer manufactured by the Amalgamated Breweries is
the remark on recent analysis made by
McDonald and McDonald, analytical chemists
of Vancouver, stating:
"By the analysis, samples prove to be excellent
beer. They are high in extract, nitrogenous
matter, phosphoric acid and ash, while the
acidity is low and the volatile acidity practically
nil, which is proof that the beer is a wholesome
nutritious beverage."

with sweep oars, they rowed into
Goose Bay. now Anyox, which
took three days.
Both Mr O'Niel and Mr McDonald went overseas at the outbreak of the war, the latter joining the Indian Army and being
killed in the Galipoli campaign.
Mr O'Niel, on his return from
the war, stayed with the Hastings Arm section and has now
one of the prominent properties
there, which he has named the
Vimy Ridge Group.
This property is situated within easy reach of the beach and
contains two very promising
showings.

By Robert M. Stewart, Ajrent.
What has been most noticeable
during the past week is that the
silver situation has had very little effect on the local stocks.
As forecasted for some time
past, public attention has been
drawn very strongly to the Marmot river section, and this is being thoroughly justified by the
developments of thc operating
properties in the Marmot valley,
both north and south forks of
that river.
Premier stock has reached its
lowest levels for some years past
There appears to be no justifiable
reason for this drop and the
present price, it is expected, will
be only temporary.
The markets for the past few
months have been a buyers' market, and this is beginniug to have
its effect, as nearly all blocks of
cheap stock have been taken up,
and it can be readily expected
that in the near future it will be
difficult to obtain many of the
stocks that are at present being
offered at sacrifice prices.
The starting of operations on
the Independence under the new
management has brought this
stock into favor, and the demand
is steadily increasing.
Dun w��ll is rapidly approaching
the producing stage, and it is expected will be in full operating
power early in the new year.
This stock is rapidly recovering
from the drop that was caused
by the issue of the last 140,000
shares.
As a whole, the market situation is very encouraging.
