Major  North,   representative
of the Institute in  this   district,
very clearly explained the  aims
and objects of the Institute, viz.
to further the interests  of  the
mining industry.     He  outlined
that there are  three   grades  ol
membership; first the professional member, who is a professional
mining engineer; second, the as-]
sociate members,   composed  of;
those not engineers, but who are
interested in   the  development]
and operation of   mines;   third,
the student member,   who  is  a I
student mining engineer.   Thus!
all classes are provided for in aj
community of this kind which is |
dependent on mining for its very
existence, and in his opinion the
Institute could be of the greatest
possible assistance to it.
Mr Asselstine, whose high
s anding as a mill man and metallurgist is eclipsed only by his
ability as an entertaining speaker, fallowed, pointing out tbe as-
s stance that such an organization would be to the development
of the mining industry in this
diatrict, and the need of organizing.

A repetition of this occurred
last week when a crew of men
employed by the Dunwell, who
were building a trail through
Glacier creek canyon on the Glacier Creek Company's Lucky Boy
claim, in connection with the
power dam for the Dunwell company, saw a lot of new galena
float at the bottom of a bluff
from which it had recently fallen. Examination proved that
it had come from a lead cropping
in the face of the cliff some little
way up from the bottom, about
20 inches wide in a quartz vein.
The samples found were some of
the finest specimens of galena
ever discovered in the district,
and an average assay gave a return of $120 in silver and lead,
with a little gold.
No work has yet been done,
the strike being reported to the
head office in Victoria. It is anticipated however that before
long the Glacier Creek Co. will
resume operations, when this
discovery will most certainly be
properly explored.

LARGE ORE BODY
MARMOT METALS
What is believed by several
miners and prospectors who have
seen it to be the largest ore body
ever located in this district, is
being opened by the Marmot
Metals Co. on their property on
the south fork of Marmot river.
Owing to the extent of the showing revealed by open cutting and
other surface work, the management as yet have not felt justified in making any statement,

Development work so far done
on the Silver Tip consists of three
short tunnels and many open
cuts, uncovering and stripping
the various ore zones along their
strikes, the work having been
done under the supervision of
C. W. Frank, Geo. E. Winkler

FREIGHT SUPPLIES
WITHOUT A ROAD
Mining and camp supplies are
being rushed in to the Cantu
property by the Premier Gold
Mining Co. in preparation for
extensive development. In spite
of there being no road, four-
horse teams and wagons are being used. Salmon river is forded
a short distance below the Nine-
mile bridge, and the Texas creek
flats followed for some distance,
this creek also being forded several times. The American government built the bridge at Nine-
mile several years ago. but made
no provision for wheel traffic
over it. the approaches being

BEAR RIVER TRAIL
GONE AT GLACIER
Jim Douville, Frank Riva and
associates left last week with a
summer's supply of food and
other supplies to do assessment
work on two groups of claims
east of the Bear river divide.
Arriving at Bear river glacier
they found that where several
hundred feet of the trail had
been built on the moraine underlain with iee, the soft winter and
spring had melted the ice and
the traii had disappeared to an
extent that blocked their progress, forcing them t�� return to
town.
They claim that as a result of
the changes a good bench exists
along which a permanent trail
can be constructed, but that such
work will take a crew of men
about three weeks. The Board
of Trade has taken the case up
with the proper officials and it is
hoped that early action will result.
GOOD SHOWING
ON 96 GROUP
Developments on the 96 group
are proving most satiifactory,
according to Dan Woodmore, one
of the owners, who visited Stewart this week. Ore in the face
of the drift is showing in increasing quantities as the work progresses, and would now all be a
good milling product.
The 96 is located on Mineral
Hill, whieh lies west of Salmon
river just south of the glacier,
and a short distance southeast of
the Cantu, which was recently
bonded by the Premier Gold
Mining Company. The 96 vein
was encountered by a tunnel 50
feet in length and is 12 feet wide
where crosscut, with two feet of
ore that gives values from $80 to
$100. From this point the vein
has been drifted on for 50 feet,
and now has a vertical depth of
125 feet.
The owners are Dan Wood-
more, Ray Snyder and P.Wilson,
who have kept the work going
steadily for two years. A model
camp with all necessary buildings has been constructed, as
well as ore bins capable of holding 100 tons, into which the high
grade has been dumped as mined. The camp is only three miles
frem the Salmon valley road at
Nine-mile on the Alaskan side.
Last week the News reported
a rumor to the effect that a new
strike had recently been made on
the B.C.Silver. In the light of
authentic information this is not
entirely correct, though from the
standpoint of some sensational
gold values in spots, it might be
said to be a strike. It appears
that a 50-foot winze was sunk in
one of the ore bodies at the north
end of the main level. From the
bottom of the winze, the ore.
which has a width of 25 feet was
crosscut, showing the whole to
be of good commercial grade with
a shoot of high-grade. In the
course of this work the ore was
continually sampled, and some of
the samples ran as high as 167
oz. gold or $3340 per ton, with
satisfactory silver values. However, these phenomenal gold values do not appear to be persistent, but to occur in pockets,
though the whole body carries
good gold and silver values. Ore
extracted in the course of this
development is being sacked and
shipped.
The management of B.C.Silver
have had a very difficult geological problem to work out and the
greatest credit is due both C. A.
Banks and Major C.B. North for
the efficient and determined manner in which they have tackled
what many others would long
ago have given up. A great deal
of credit is also due the English
shareholders for having stuck to
their task of putting up the development money in the way that
they have, and the reward which
now appears to be at hand will
be well earned.

DRIVING TUNNEL
CHIEF METALS
Work is steadily progressing
in ine Chief Metals tunnel, according to Emil Davis, manager
for the company. The tunnel is
following the vein and is now in
130 feet, with a good showing in
the face. The vein is feur feet
in width, of quartz which is
heavily mineralized with galena,
especially on the footwall side.
Development for this season so
far decided upon is to extend
this tunnel a further distance of
200 feet. Fire Chief Ebbing-
house of Seattle, president of the
company, is expected in to visit
the property early in July.
The Chief Metals is located a
short distance southeast of the
Big Missouri, in a favorable location for economical operation
if transportation were provided.
Mr Davis says the  property  is

THE BUDDING OF A GREAT FUTURE
THOSE people of this Province who
have for the past six to nine months been
pulling long faces and spreading pessimism as to the mining future of this district, prove their ignorance of the mining
industry, insofar as they forget that a
quartz mine, or mining district, is not
made in a day, but that it takes years.
The great Sullivan mine at Kimberly
is situated in one of the oldest mining districts of this Province, and was first staked in the early nineties, or more than 30
years ago, and was not a commercial success until scientific research made it a
possibility at the close of the war. As a
result it now figures as one of the world's
largest mines of its kind, paying hundreds
of thousands annually to the Government
treasury, millions each year in dividends,
and distributing many more millions
through the business channels of this
Province, thus making for general prosperity.
The Premier mine in this district was
first staked some 20 years ago, during
which time it was turned down on more
than .one occasion. Not until 1919 were
sufficient funds made available for its development by the present company, and
as a result it has paid in a few short years
nearly ten millions in dividends and is
still going strong, besides distributing as
much again in wages, supplies and materials, and hundreds of thousands in taxes.
The Dunwell mine is another, just
now emerging from that of a prospect to
the status of a mine after many years of
determined effort and perseverence on the
part of the owners.
B. C. Silver, after many thousands
spent in development, is now promising to
soon be another monument to perseverence and like Dunwell will soon repay its
backers handsomely.
Big Missouri is another comer that
promises in the near future to reveal great
wealth for those who have had the dogged
courage to stay with it.
Instances of this sort could be recounted almost without number. Space in these
columns precludes naming any more individual cases in even this district, where
there are a large number coming along
very well indeed. In fact the gains made
by the mining industry of this district during the past few years more than offset
the losses, and by comparison the present
situation promises to make these losses
negligible within the span of a few short
years.
As one mining engineer of great and
successful operation all over this continent, as well as several years in this district stated the other day: "The future of
Portland Canal is exceptionally bright;
its mineral resources and possibilities are
not yet fully realized nor known, and I
look to see the day when the population of
this district will number thirty thousand."
This statement oame from a man who in
his profession is recognized as eminently
capable, and of wide experience, therefore
it should be sufficient to cheer the fainthearted, as well as withering and drying
up the moans and groans of the pessimist.
Compare its source with that of the expressions of the pessimists and knockers,
who invariably are men who have done
but little, men of no vision, little courage
and oftimes weak ability, to say nothing
of their having little or no knowledge of the district or the mining industry. Stewart and the
Portland Canal district as a whole are on the eve
of great, and still greater development, carrying
them on a wave of progress and prosperity that
will make them in a few short years one of the
greatest mining camps on this or any other continent. But it is only those who gtick with it who
will win out, for those who do not, will quickly
have their places taken by others who will.

Enthusiastic Meeting Led
By Engineers and Metallurgists Organizes Local
For This District
(Continued from Page 1)
Mr Peterson very aptly supported the other speakers, advocated that an immediate start be
made on organization, and that
the first meeting be called early
in July, to be held in conjunction with a dinner at whi��h a
numberof good papers would be
given by technical men on mining aid metallurgy, and that invitations to this dinner be sent
to Alice Arm and Anyox. This
suggestion was approved by the
meeting, which appointed a committee of the present members
of the Institute attending, to
organize for it.
All three speakers were enthusiastic as te the mining progress being made by the district, its mineral resources and
immediate future, which, coming
from men of their experience and
standing was most gratifying to
all present. The meeting evoked
an enthusiasm and optimism seldom before witnessed in Stewart
Application blanks are to be
distributed shortly, it being the
intention to place the new local
aggressively on the map, in keeping with the great strides that
the industry is making in the
district, and the future that is
now promising.

Road and Trail Work
As a result of the week-end
visit of Provincial Chief Engineer of Bridges Carruthers,
whose mission here was to go
into bridge and road matters
with W.A.Talbot, Public Works
engineer for this distriet, it has
been decided to materially widen
and improve the road between
Stewart and Hyder, complete the
Marmot river road to the forks
and the new cut-off between Bitter creek and Bear lake this season. Work on the two latter
projects is now well under way.
There will in addition be the
usual amount of trail work in
the district.

Dated this 21st day of September,

It is noticed that experienced
mining investors are continually
taking advantage of cheap offerings in mining stocks of merit in
the Portland Canal district. This
is most noticeable in Dunwell,
Premier and B.C.Silver as investment stocks, and Marmot
Metais as a mine in the earlier
stages. In the case ef the latter
the stock is allowed to remain
inactiye, but on the slightest
drop becomes in heavy demand.
The report of the finding of a
large ore body on the Marmot
Metals is covered on the front
page of this paper, but as usual
to the management of the property, is very conservative.
Independence remained in very
active demand during the week,
and higher levels are looked for
in this stock.
There are various reports that
the L & L are changing control,
though nothing authentic has
been made public as yet,
The Indian situation remains
unchanged, with little activity
in the stock.
Little trading is being recorded in Lakeview,. Porter Idaho
and L&L.
