NEW HOSPITAL
BOARDMOSEN
At the annual meeting of the
Stewart Hospital Association held
in Moose Hall at 7 o'clock last
Tuesday evening, the following
were elected members of the
new board, to serve during the
coming year: Mrs G.C. Andrew,
J. II. Wilson. Jaa. Morrice, S. G.
Lawrence, H.D. Rochfort. R. W.
Kennedy and J.P.Scarlett. The
following were also nominated
but refused to stand, making
the election of the new board
unanimous: H.P. Gibson, W. R.
Tooth, H. G. Marvin and W. R.
Hull. Since the election was
held Mrs Andrew haa resigned.
The retiring president of the
board, H.G. Marvin, made a concise report ��f hospital activities
for the past year, showing that
a great deal had been accomplished. Be also made a number of suggestions which he asked
the new board to take under consideration, for the further welfare of the hospital. These matters had already been under more
or kg diieNon by the old
beard, and no there  were two
��
members re-elected, the further
consideration of such subjects
will b�� made easier.
R. W. Kennedy, secretary of
the board, gave a financial report
which showa the finances of the
hospital to be in better condition
at present than they have been
for some time.
The meeting was very poorly
attended owing perhaps to three
re tions: Lack of publicity, inclement weather and the early
hoar ef meeting.,
START WORK
ON JENQINEER
George Bunn, owner. of the
Engineer group on the south fotk
of Marmot river, has started operations and intends to continue
through the winter. Until the
snow becomes too heavy to allow
outside work, he will get out
timbers and pull them to the site
ef a new tunnel he intends driving to get under an ore showing
which could not be opened up
satisfactorily to any great extent
at the point where his former
work was done. The Engineer
is fortunately situated, lying at
a comparatively low elevation on
the west side of Marmot glacier,
and extending from the ice up
the steep mountainside to the
Washington group.
Two vcir 8 have been given a
thorough 'surface examination.
The westerly of these carries
a strong showing of chalcopyrite,
or "yellow copper," while silver
and lead predominate in the
other vein, which lies practically
parallel.

SICK MAN HAS
PERILOUS TRIP
Martin Johnson, employed as a
miner at the Washington property, was attacked by pneumonia at the mine and is now in
the Stewart hospital, having been
brought down by the mine crew,
assisted by a relief party of six
men who were sent up by Dr.
Whillans. The doctor went to
the mine to examine the stricken
man and decided that he must
be brought out where proper attention could be given.
The Washington is situated on
the south fork of the Marmot,
the camp being at about 4000 feet
elevation, and is reached by a
pack trail that is very steep most
of the way and at present is under from two to four feet of
snow. To accomplish the task
of transporting a man of Johnson's powerful build down to the
beach under such conditions is
one that only the hardy miners
of the north could have successfully completed. They lashed the
sick man to a sled and made the
grade however in spite of snow-
slides and the danger of being
swept over cliffs.
At latest reporta Johnson is
doing aa well as could be expected under the circumstances.

MINING CONGRESS
WILL VISIT 6. C.
As a contribution toward the
expenses for the forthcoming
Empire Mining and Metallurgical
Congress, to be held in Montreal
August 22,1927, British Columbia
will be asked for a grant of
$5000, G. E. Mackenzie, general
secretary, told the local institute
at luncheon in Vancouver. This
will be the second triennial congress of this institute, the first
being held in 1924, when repre
sentatives of the various domin
t'   *f\ '
ions met at Wembley, England
The coming congress will com
mence in Montreal, the members
later visiting the various mining
districts throughout Canada. A
special train to accommodate 200
members, and another train if
necessary will convey the congress to various points.
Since this is an exceptional opportunity for Canada, as it means
the possibility of investment of a
large amount of capital, it was
pointed out that the cities and
provinces should support the
movement financially. Provid
ing, as it does, a possibility for
interesting mining owners and
operators in the vast resources of
Canada. Mr. Mackenzie urged
the British Columbia institutes
to do everything in their power
to make interesting plans and arrangements for the stay in Brit
ish Columbia.
There are more than 13,000
members throughout the empire,
and it is proposed to send invitations to the members from the

various provinces and cities. The
dominion government has placed
$25,000 in this year's estimates
for the support of this congress,
and Ontario has promised $15,-
000. The other western provinces will be asked for $5000
each, with the exception of Saskatchewan, which will be asked
for $2500, Various mining companies have promised financial
support, and it is hoped that it
will be possible to make this
meeting attractive to the members of the iustitues in England,
Australia, India and South Africa.
Tentative plans were mentioned by Mr. Mackenzie, and he
urged the Vancouver branch to
form committees to make arrangements for their part of the
country. In Manitoba and Ontario a fleet of air planes will
carry members over districts of
those provinces.
, That wHl be the most important congress ever held in Canada,
it was pointed out by D. McEvoy,
chairman of the Vancouver institute, who stated that it would do
more toward solidification of the
different parts of the empire
than any other convention ever
held in the dominion.
LaRose Shipping
The LaRose Mining company
shipped 42 tons of high grade
silver ore on the Cardena last
Monday. The shipment is destined for Trail and is expected to
carry high values. Work has
been suspended at the mine until
next spring. This action was
taken on account of the prevailing low price of silver. It was
not deemed good business to market any more ore until the price

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston ft Co)
Northern British Columbia
mining shares have been in very
active demand during the past
week. The low price at which a
number of the prominent stocks
have been offering is causing
considerable accumulation, in anticipation of the usual active
market in the early spring.
On the Vancouver market Premier and Dunwell still hold the
lead in activity, a Iarge volume
of trading being done in both
these securities, and it is reported by the large firms of brokers
in the south that the supply of
these stocks at the present market price will soon be exhausted
and the price will quickly come
back to somewhere near its true
value.
Independence is leading the
cheaper issues in trading and It
is reported that a syndicate from
our southern neighbors is in the
market to pick up all the cheap
offerings of Independence.
The news becoming public at
the general meeting of Marmot
Metals of the exceptionally good
results obtained on the property
during last summer's operations
stiffened the stock considerably,
and very few offerins are on the
exchange.
