Efforts to Create Erroneous
Opinion as to Dunwell
Are Here Shown in Their
True Light
The Dunwell Mines Co, has to
date spent in development about
$8), 000 of the $350,000arranged
for as a result of the reorganization last fall, thus leaving them
in the treasury $2'.0,000 with
which to build the mill, which it
is estimated will cost in the
neighborhood of $100,000; the
tram line, $15,000, and make
provision for a power plant capable of developing 1000 h.p., of
which 500 h.p. will be hydro and
400 semi or full Diesel auxiliary :
this will ran into the neighborhood of $40,000. This information was obtained from a reliable
authority.
It is expected that it will take
about six months to complete
the mill and have it in operation,
therefore another 160.000 has
been appropriated to maintain
the present monthly expenditure
over this period.
These figures have been reached by estimating the cost of the
work, then adding a percentage
for good measure. From this it
will be seen that with smelter
returns from the ore shipped,
and residue from the aforementioned $350,000, the Dunwell
Mines Co. have sufficient funds
to put inte effect all their plans,
and have a matter of $60,000 remaining, with which to provide
for emergencies and for carrying
on until returns come in from
the shipments of concentrates.
This information was obtained
by the News in order to give the
lie to the many knockers who are
spreading a lot of faise reports
and rumors throughout the
country.
COURT HOUSE AND RECORD OFFICE
This is just to remind you that your Miner's Licence expires at midnight on May 31st
��� and should be renewed on or before that date to protect any interest you may hold
in mineral claims in British Columbia for which Crown Grants have not been obtained.
You may secure your new licence at any time before that date, and if you wish,
may have it issued for longer periods than one year, to save the trouble of renewals.
Licences may be obtained from any Mining Recorder in the Province, but it will
help the district in which your property is situated to have your licence issued by the
local Recorder.
COURT OF REVISION      ���
HERE ON TUESDAY
Provision will be made at the
court of revision, which wil! sit
at the Court-house May 18 for
those desirous of registering as
voters on the provincial list.
Owing to the Dominion elections of last fall, many persons
who registered then are under
the impression that they are automatically on the provincial voters' lists. This is not the case.
The federal election was based
on the provincial lists augmented by those who registered as
voters for the Dominion contest,
thus creating a new list, but the
Dominion list is not a basis for a
provincial list.
The voters who registered last
October may do so again, if they
have not already done so, by
making personal application at
the court of revision.

CONSOLIDATION
NEAR PREMIER
During the past winter there
appears to have been a very interesting consolidation going on,
of properties adjoining and lying east of the Premier, the last
to be taken into this being the
Glacier group of eight claims,
owned by W.J.Jancowski, Harry
Scovil and Harry Reid. Hugh B.
McGuire apparently has been the
moving light in the undertaking,
operating under the name of the
Alaska Canadian Co. While very
little information is available, it
is understood that this company
has taken over control of the
Premier Extension, formerly the
Vancouver group, the Pittsmont
property and the Ruby Silver,
with possibly one or two other
claims.
' This amalgamation is interesting in view of the fact that it
will be virtually in the eentre of
the Premier operations, providing the Premier Co. decide to
take over the Indian, which is to
the north of the consolidation,
and the Cantu and Frances, lying to the west, while the Premier lies to the east.
DAN MATHIESON
DIES IN RUPERT
of
Start Road Work
The Provincial Government
are planning quite an extensive
road and trail program this season, the first of which will be
commenced within the next few
days by opening a camp on the
Marmot river for the completion
of the road started last year; the
first work done here will be connecting up wjth the new float.
Another camp is to be opened at
once north of Bitter creek, for
the construction of the cutoff between Bitter creek and Bear lake
and the solving ef the Muddy
gulch situation.
Word has been received of the
death in Prince Rupert on Monday, May 10, of Dan Mathieson,
a well knewn and highly respected miner of the district, who
has been one of the standbys of
the Premier mine. He had been
failing for some time, and a few
weeks ago started south for relief, but could get no further
than Prince Rupert. His brother
Niel, also well known in this
camp, was with him when the
end came, and attended to the
funeral arrangements. Deceased
was born in Cape Breton, and
was of a quiet, retiring disposition, with many friends among
his associates here, who will
grieve over his loss.
The United Services Club semimonthly card parties which have
been so well attended all winter,
will be brought to a close with a
a final party and dance in the
club tonight, when cups will be
awarded the lady and gentleman
who have the highest scores for
the series. The club, as in past
years, will hold a dance in the
Opera House on May 24.
RUSH & DAGG
ASKJAMAGES
Rush-Columbia Directors,
Fiscal Agent, A. S. & R.
Co. and Attorney General
Named in Suit
Claiming $600,000 actual and
punitive damages in respect of
the exploitation ofthe Rush-Columbia silver-lead mine, Glacier
creek section, W. W. Rush, a
Stewart miner, and Arthur L.
Bagg, fruitgrower of Oliver, B.
ft, have issued a writ out of Supreme Court, Vancouver. The
defendants are American Smelting & Refining Co. of Taeoma;
Major A.R.Ross of Ross, Johnson, Ltd. of Victoria; Hon, A.M.
Manson, Attorney General for
B.C.; Col. A. L. Jacobs, retired
army officer; Arthur Edward

allege they have been the victims of a conspiracy which has
prevented them obtaining money
to develop the mine.
Rush and Bagg allege that in
1905 and subsequent years they
located in the Stewart district

MOOSEHEART LEGION
IS ORGANIZED HERE
Fourteen members of the
Mooseheart Legion of Prince Ru-
Pert arrived on the launch Pachena last Saturday and remained
in Stewart until Sunday evening.
A Legion was organized here
with a nucleus of 24 members,
after which a dance was held in
the Opera House, which waa liberally patronized, an especially
strong delegation from Hyder
coming over. The dance receipts,
$57, were turned over to the
Stewart General Hospital, and
came at an opportune time for
that institution.
Sunday afternoon the visitors
attended a ball game on the local grounds between the Stewart
and Hyder nines, and were given
a real exhibition of how to get
runs like cricketers. Stawart
gathered in a couple of dozen,
and Hyder accumulated enough
to show that they also ran. PORTLAND   CANAL   NEWS,   STEWART,   B. C,   FRIDAY,    MAY   14,   1926

A FALLACY EXPOSED
"^ar away fields look green" is an old
and true adage. Sometimes the farther
away they are, the brighter the emerald
hue. Thousands of people now living in
Canada really believe that if they were
living in the United States, all their troubles would be over, and peace and happiness would be theirs. They have visions
of hundreds of thousands of people clamoring to gain admittance to this land of
promise. They believe that tens of thousands are denied admittance each year,
since the quota law was passed. An analysis of immigration figures for the first
seven months of the present quota year,
by the U.S.A. National Industrial Conference Board shows a net loss in common
laborers of 8797, compared with a-net loss
of 21,245 for the same period last year.
The bulk of immigration is from Canada and Mexico, the figures reveal, with
Great Britain, Ireland and Scandinavian
countries supplying less than their quota
allowances. While 2714 Italians, a great
deal less than the quota allowed, entered
the seven-month period, 21,758 left America for Italy.
The above figures prove that the stories circulated of the tremendous rush of
the rest of the world to get into the United States are faUe, and that the people of
Canada have been misinformed. For
those who have the willingness to work
and progress, Canada is better than any
country in the world. We have the space,
the resources and the people,���ihe best on
earth���and boundless opportunities* exist
for those who take advantage of them.
Instead of yearning for the light green
of other fields, we should scrutinize the
For many months now, ever since certain individuals and interests for one reason or another, and at one time or another
were not able to get their own way, there
has been a considerable knocking of the
Dunwell operation. This would not be so
bad if it were not encouraged by those
who should know better; but many people
often knock in the hope of grinding their
own axes, and others do so because they
like to appear very wise, with the result
that statements are widely circulated, that
have no foundation in fact.
These are many and varied, as far as
Dunwell is concerned, and have their origin in prejudice, envy and jealousy. One
receiving considerable credence is to the
effect Ihat the management of this mine
is spending money so fast that they will
soon not have-sufficient left to complete
their policies, a most foolish rumor. It
was with a view to giving our readers the
true situation, that the Editor of this paper went fully into the matter of Dunwell
finances this week, with the best possible
authority, and as a result received the information contained in the news columns
of this issue, from which it can be easily
seen that Dunwell finances are in good
shape, and ample for the work in hand,
leaving a good margin for eventualities.
As regards the actual mine management, there are equally ridiculous rumors
being circulated. The foundation for
these has also been gene into, and perhaps no better proof of their falsity can be given than in the
words of one disinterested mining man, who is in
a good position to judge and who is thoroughly
competent to express an opinion. When asked
by the Editor he said; "After spending a day or
so at Dunwell I was much impressed with the
manner in which Mr Little is opening up the property, and eoncluded the management as efficient
as any in the district or the province, and a great
deal more so than many."
These referred-to false rumors appear to
have received considerable credence, particularly
in Vancouver, the centre of many interests, and
we would remind our readers in that city that it
often happens to some interests that they car.
only assist their own game by knocking someone
else. Sometimes their policy is dictated by monetary interests, and sometimes by jealousy. The

DUTHIE MINE
OREBINS FULL
With all storage accommodation filled to overflowing, work
at the Duthie mine has reached
a point where operations may be
curtailed unless road conditions
improve rapidly to permit of ore
hauling and shipment. For two
months very little ore has been
coming down from the mine, although mining operations have
been carried on without interruption of the working force and
now the bins are filled and every
foot of storage is occupied by ore
ready to come down the hill.
This week the department of
public works started a crew of
men to repair the damage to the
road caused by the heavy loads
in the unusual spring season.
Wnile the grader has succeeded
in filling in many holes, great
ruts have been cut by the heavy
trucks operated on the road and
it will be necessary to haul huge
quantities of road material to fill
in the holes and provide transportation of an economic nature.
MINING MEANS
MILLION WEEKLY
Mining in British Columbia
was given a boost when His Hon.
Liet.-Gov. Bruce discussed it before the Canadian Club in Vancouver. Mining is rapidly becoming the chief industry of the
provinoe, and the figures given,
that $1,000,000 a week was spent
in converting ores into marketable metals, shows its value.
His Honor is familiar with
mining in the interior, being
himself an operator of several
years' standing, and in his remarks he dealt at some length
with mining in the eastern part
of the province. He advanced
the statement that "one of the
greatest factors in facilitating
the development of this port
would be the maximum development of the mining resources of
the province."
This is being recognized more
and more by the people of the
province themselves, and with
practical men like the Lieut.-
Governor behind   the  advance-

Seattle Mine Bonded
"Seattle" Clark, an oldtimer
of the Boundary camp of a quarter-century ago, has recently returned to Grand Forks from California, intending to again locate
in this province, bringing his
"Seattle" mine on the North
Fork of Kettle river back among
the shippers again. The "Seattle" is now bonded te the Seattle
Gold and Copper Mines, a California concern, at $100,000 reputedly, with a substantial cash
payment and guarantee of the

The Bolly Varden railway repair work was completed through
to Camp 8 on May 1 and the road
is now open to traffic, says the
Alice Arm Herald. Mining companies and prospectors can now
ship their supplies through to
the end of the steel. This early
opening of the railway constitutes a record, and it is being
taken advantage of by mining
property owners who desire an
early start.
Chas. Wing, for a number of
years with the Gran by at Anyox,
is now in the bond department
of Pemberton & Son, Vancouver.
Greenwood Awakening
Opening up of a large body of
high-grade ore on the Elkhorn
mine near Greenwood is arousing new interest in that section.
The Elkhorn adjoins the Providence, which produced ore valued at over $1,500,000 in the last
quarter of a century, principally
in the old days. Both these properties are held privately by residents of Greenwood district.
Thomas King & Co., Vancouver, recently took over the Brook-
lyn-Stemwinder mine in Phoenix
camp, and Spokane people have
bonded the Last Chance. G. S.
Walters, of Greenwood has given
a bond and option on the Prince
Henry mine, one mile east of
Greenwood, to E. O. Weston, of
the Northland Mining Company,
Vancouver.

Mining Ranks Third
Mining, now third in rank
among Canada's primary industries, contributes extensively to
the wealth and prosperity of the
dominion. Large tonnages of
freight move from and to the
mines; many subsidiary industries depend upon the mining industry for their prosperity. Canada's progress in the production
of mineral wealth has been notable, particularly in recent years,
and the developments in established fields, the discovery of
new mineral areas and finally the
surpassing in 1925 of all previous
production records, stamp the
mineral industry as one of the
greatest factors in Canada's industrial and commercial life.

Consider
If Dunwell in May, 1925, was worth $4.50, with very little
cash in hand and practically no treasury stock, and capital of
$350,000,���
j
What is Dunwell werth the present day, with $275,000
available for mill, tramway and development?
The present market on this stock is around $1.75 to $2.00.
This is the third time Dunwell has offered an
opportunity in Canadian Mining Investments.

DUNWELL KNOCKERS
(Continued from Page 2.)
Editor remembers hearing a very
prominent mining man who
spends a great deal of his time
in Vancouver, who has interests
in this district, say some two or
three years age: "Oh yes. I always make a policy of knotking
every other property but my
own." This man today is considered in Vancouver as quite an
authority, and it is altogether
possible that he has on more
than one occasion made disparaging remarks concerning Dunwell, with very littl"* more basis
in fact than is required by a distorted mentality, such as the
above statement denotes.
To guard against this sort of
thing, our advice would be, personal investigation; failing that,
collaboration of information from
every available source.
There is nothing wrong with
Dunwell policy, finance or management. If some of the knock-
era would apply some of the
Dunwell policy efficiently to their
own properties, mining in B. C.
would receive a still greater
stimulus.

and L&L groups of mineral
claims. Four claims of the Rush-
Columbia group were optioned in
1910 for $65,000, and plaintiffs
were paid $9,500 before the option lapsed. The property had
improvements costing $10,000,
mostly carried out by the plaintiffs.
In April, 1925, plaintiffs allege
that they entered into an agree
ment with Paul Denhart and Otto
E. Sauter by which the plaintiffs Premier
Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
The rejuvenation of the mining markets after the oil flurry
continues with marked results.
With known properties of merit
in the district, a much higher
price list can be looked for in
the very near future.
The continuous increasing of
ore shipments from the Premier
assure a continuation of tne phenomenal dividends, which have
marked this property as one of
the outstanding mines of northern Canada.
The actual starting of mill and
tram construction on the Dunwell will shortly be placing this
mine on a dividend paying basis.
There has been a rumor current
that the Dunwell was not financed sufficiently to c��melete its
summer's program, but it has
been learned from authentic
sources that this is   not so.
It has been disappointing to
the shareholders ef Porter Idaho
that no statements have been
made public in regards the intention ot the management for
summer operations.
Reports from Marmot Metals
are most favorable, and when
the camp is established at the
new workings it is expected that
some news of import to the share
holders will be made public. The
stock is steady, with few offerings.
L&L remains inactive, with
the stock selling at new low
levels.
