Larger Scale
Having completed a very satisfactory season's work, demonstrating conclusively the possibilities of the property, the management of the Porter Idaho
have closed down for the winter
months, and will reopen with a
permanent and extensive development program in March of
next year.
During the period of the shutdown, a matter  of  some  four
months, the present syndicate,
according to a statement issued
by the management, will   be reorganized into a limited liability
company, incorporated under the
laws of British Columbia,   with!
head office in Stewart, and   fori
each unit that has been issued in I
the syndicate, the owner, at the I
time of incorporation,   will   re-!
ceive $100 worth of stock in  the I
new company.   Clay Porter, dis-
coveror and manager of the property, will leave for Victoria and
Vancouver about the 1st of November for the  purpose  of  arranging for and completing the
incorporation,    this   being   the
principal reason for the   winter
shut-down.
Starting last spring by backpacking in supplies, a horse
trail was constructed up andj
onto the property, a good lumber cabin 14x32 was built, 450
feet of tunnels were driven,
from which some 175 tons of ore
were extracted and shipped.
The smelter returns on the first
30 tons netted the syndicate $164

Selby Smelter, at which the ore
was treated, for more of the

should be as satisfactory as that

The Porter Idaho is situated
��n the north fork of the Marmot

tidewater, and adjoins the Silverado on the east. Consisting
of seven claims, it ranges in election from 3000 to 6000 feet.

Permanent camps have already

will be a house for the compressor plant.
It is proposed to drive a second
crosscut tunnel 500 feet long to
tap the big vein at a depth of approximately 350 feet. The improvement in size of the vein
and character of the ore in the
present tunnel, over conditions
on the surface is such as to warrant the assumption that with
increased depth a still greater
improvement may be expected,

A FUTURE
WITH a late spring, short summer
and heavy fall rains, the Weather man
this season has thrown every possible obstacle in the way of the various operations
in the district. In spite of this it has been
a season of real action and development;
possibly never in the history of the camp
has so much development work been so
efficiently carried out as has been done
this year. Well organized, well financed
and well managed, these operations have
without exception been energetically prosecuted and a maximum of work has been
dene at a minimum of expense, with most
gratifying results. Valuable ore bodies
have been opened on many properties that
demonstrate the district's ability of becoming) in a few short years, one of the
world's great producers of precious metals.
Looking over the field of the season's
endeavor, and considering collectively
the wonderful results that have been obtained during a few short months over a
THE accomplishment of the Porter
Idaho Syndicate this season may be safely
said to constitute a record.
Financed locally, the management
commenced the season by the construction
of considerable trail, later built a good
lumber camp, drove 450 feet of tunnel,
from which was extracted, sacked and
shipped 175 tons of ore, netting the treasury more than sufficient to pay for all running expenses.
A lot of good work has been done in
the eamp this season, under the ablest of
direction, and there is no room for any
reflection when it is said that Mr Porter is
entitled to congratulations for having established a record for the year's accomplishment.

TOIL REWARDED
THIS week's issue carries a budget of
news from a special and reliable correspondent at Telegraph Creek, reporting the
season's progress in that, and the Dease
Lake country, which will be of undoubted
interest to our many mining readers, particularly in view of the recent placer excitement on Gold Pan creek. In the letter
accompaning the news item it is stated
that "Gold Pan creek is good. Practical
miners who came in with Galvin and Chil-
berg state that it is the best prospect they
ever saw."
Great credit is due Mr Grady, who,
for four long years has prospected the
ereeks east of Dease lake without a murmur of complaint of any kind. It would
appear that he is now about to reap the
reward of his toil, and the News takes
pleasure in offering him congratulations,
and wishing him the best
of luck.

An editor and a merchant
were discussing the virtue of
billboard advertising. The merchant contended that more people read the billboard than the
newspapers. After a lengthy
conversation in which neither
man would give in, they parted.
The next week the merchant
came tearing down the street to
the newspaper office wanting to
know why the obituary of his
wife's mother was not in the
paper, especially after he had
seen that a copy was taken to the
newspaper office. "Well," said
the editor. "I knew you wanted
the obituary read by the people,
so I took it and nailed it up on

the Black Wolf Mining Co., has
arrived from Seattle with a crew
