Sixty-seven Mineral Groups
Represented by Samples
From This District Sent
To Exhibition
Taking advantage of the opportunity to display the mineral
wealth of the Portland Canal district before the eytfs of thousands���it might safely be said
hundreds of thousands���of people who will visit the Vancouver
Exhibition this year, the Portland Canal News last Monday
night shipped out a large box of
specimens to supplement the exhibit supplied last year, which
won first prize in competition
against the whole of British
Columbia.
Last year the prize was a gold
medal, whieh is now on view in
the glass case in the front office
of the Portland Canal News, in
which are kept the rarest and
most spectacular specimens. Beside the medal stands the silver
cup presented by the Prince Rupert Kxhbition as first prize in
the district exhibit competition.
The box sent to Vancouver
-Monday night contains samples
from 24 properties that were not
represented last year, and every
specimen came from a property
that gives every indication of developing into a productive mine.
Mining in this district has but
barely commenced. As proof of
this, consider the following 07
properties which are represented
in the Portland Canal News exhibit from this district. You will
find very few that have not a
good chance of becoming producers.

LOCAL MINES
W.F.Irwin, of the well known
financial firm of R. P. Clark &
Co., Vancouver and Victoria, arrived from the south Monday
evening, accompanied by Mrs
Irwin, for the purpose of looking
over the district and visiting as
many of the mines as possible,
acquiring first-hand knowledge
of conditions and the local situation. So far during the week
he has visited the Premier, B.C.
Silver and Marmot Metals, and
is now up at the Big Missouri
and Sebakwe. He will visit the
Dunwell next Monday, and in
the evening address a luncheon
tendered him by the% Board of
Trade, giving his impressions of
the district, and the present
financial situation and the future
as he sees it.
Mr and Mrs Irwin are no
strangers to the district, having
visited here in the boom days
of 1911.

mining interests.
Miss Davidson, of the Canadian Red Cross, visited Stewart
during the stay of the Prince
Charles Tuesday morning, for
the purpose of arranging for a
class in Stewart to take home
nursing during the winter.
Enthused with the showings
being made on the Montreal
group, Jas. Douville who, with
Frank Riva, owns the eight
claims, came to town this week
for more supplies and eays it is
their intention to continue work
until late in the fall. The Montreal is situated 23 miles, from
Stewart near the head of Beaver
river, about two miles east of
the head of Bear river, and adjoining the crown granted Murdoch group, which is owned
principally by residents of Vancouver.
Two tunnels, one twenty feet
long and the other ten, have been
driven on the hanging and foot
walls of a vein that is 30 feet in
width, and between the tunnels
the entire width has been "faced
up" to a height of about six feet,
showing the solid ore all the way
across. Specimens brought to
town, which are said to represent the average, show galena,
chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite iron and
zinc in a blueish quartz gangue.
A tunnel has been started on
a parallel vein 100 feet to the
northwest, which has five feet
of good ore in the face. There
are a number of other showings
in the group, including an ore
zone that parallels the two veins
mentioned, and is 100 feet or
more in width. It will take time
and money to properly prove up
the property, but any one of the
veins now prospected would be
considered sufficient alone to
warrant the assumption that it
would develop into a mine.
Messrs Douville and Riva rebuilt the government trail past
the Bear river glacier in order to
take in pack horses, making a
permanent job which is in no
danger of sliding out, as happened to the old trail. Their camp
is only ten minutes' walk from
the trail, and their veins can be
traced practically to it.
Mclntomineys Leaving
Mrs Wm. Mclntominey and
children intend leaving on the
Prince George tomorrow morning for Vancouver, where they
expect to remain for a month
and then join Mr Mclntominey,
who is engaged in mining at
Beaverdell. Mrs Mclntominey
has been a resident of Stewart
for nearly eight years, and will
be sadly missed by her many
friends here. Their fine home
has been purchased by J. V.

TORIC MINE TO
MAKE BULLION
The concentrating mill at the
Toric mine at Alice Arm is now
about completed and, depending
on the delivery of machinery,
should be in operation by the end
of August, according to A. C. H.
Gerhardi, managing director and
consulting engineer for the Consolidated Home,-,take Mining &
Development Co. The mill will
have a daily capacity of 100 tons
and, in order to simplify the
problem of shipping, it is proposed to smelt the ore into gold
and silver bullion on the ground,
making bullion shipments monthly direct to the banks.
Mr Gerhardi states that half a
million tons of ore has already
been blocked out in less than
1000 feet of crosscutting in the
'loric mine. On a very conservative basis the ore is valued   at
$12 per ton, although assays ��ver
the area have shown a value of
over $22 per ton.
R. D. Escombe who was brought
from the Old Country especially
for the position, is superintendent of the Toric mine and there
are 12 men employed at the present time there.
In order to take supplies into
the mine from the wharf at Alice
Arm the Homestake Co. has just
placed a 4J-ton gasoline locomotive on the tracks of the Dolly
Varden Railway. The railroad is
now in good Bhape, Mr Gerhardi
stating that cosniderable credit
is due the provincial government
for the manner in which it has
been maintained.
The Toric lies just across the
Kitsault river from the Dolly
Varden mine and is connected
with the railway by a high-level
bridge. The mine itself is about
three-quarters of a mile from
the railway grade.���Prince Rupert News.

Beer Analyzed
By Experts
ALL the Beers purchased by the Liquor
Control Board of B. C. from the Vancouver Breweries Limited, Rainier Brewing Co. of Canada Limited, Westminster
Brewing Co. Limited, Victoria Phoenix
Brewing Co. Limited and the Silver Spring
Brewery Limited, who are all members of
the Amalgamated Breweries of B. C, for
sale at Government Liquor Stores and the
Licensed Beer Parlors, have been and will
be analyzed from time to time by different expert firms of the continent for the
protection of the public.
THE substance of these various analyses instigated by order of the
Liquor Control Board shows that the
Beers are perfect, the taste agreeable and
malty. The foam is creamy and stands
up well. The alcohol by weight is about
4.25 per cent, and the extract 5.49 per
cent, with an original gravity of about
13.20. These analyses indicate further
that the Beers are of good quality, wholesome and free from any foreign substance.
TO make a flood Beer with such health-giving
qualities It requires a skilled brewraaster and
an up-to-date hygienic plant, such as maintained
by the above mentioned Breweries. These plants
are open for inspection and visits of the public ara
gladly solicited. Only the best materials obtainable are used in the manufacture of the Beers.
TIIE Brewing capacity of the above Breweries,
members; of the Amalgamated Breweries of
B. C, is about eight times as large as th*e present
output, which gives best assurance to the public
of receiving only fully matured and properly
aged Beers for many years to come.
