MANSON'S   EULOGY
IN a speech at the Rotary Club luncheon, the other day in Prince Rupert, the
Hon. A. M. Manson proved himself a big
man, for by paying a compliment to an
opponent he showed clearly that he is big
enough to stand on his own feet.   Mr.
Manson, who had recently returned from
Ottawa, said of the Hon. Arthur Meighen,
leader of the Conservative party in the
House of Commons:
" While in Ottawa I was particularly interested in the respective styles of the
three party leaders, but especially so in
Mr. Meighen, for he is one of the very
able men in argument the country possesses. He is of quiet presence, but has
great driving force, and his style is quite
a contrast to Crerar."
It is very refreshing to hear a prominent member of one political party eulogize
the leader of another, in the manner in
which Mr. Manson has done, and a few
more men of his caliber in the public life
of this country would be a great benefit
to it.
Mr. Manson is possibly one of the
youngest attorney-generals that British
Columbia has ever had; but to people who
have watched him carefully, during his boiled with Eve.
short career in public life, it is easily realized that he has a great future before
him. There is lots of room for men of his
type at the top.
v
as inevitable, and arising from world conditions not in any way connected with our
mines; the results obtained will prove a
very agreeable surprise, in that the discrepancies prove to be much less than was
feared they would be, and in comparison
with other communities we should consider
ourselves very fortunate.
To appreciate how strenuous have been
the obstacles with which metal mining has
had to contend with this past year, one has
to take a broad view of the general conditions, as they exist in the world at large,
for our conditions cannot be considered a
local matter, as they are governed and
controlled by world conditions, and we are
but a small factor in the world's production
of metals.
Europe is the world's metal market, to
which practically all export metals find
their way. As Europe is the consumer,
the industrial conditions of Europe regulate the consumption and the demand for
metals.
With the unsettled condition of Europe
at the present time, Europe can not buy
our metals; with the result that there has
been on this continent a greatly overstocked metal market, which has brought
about the usual result, a tremendous drop | rzr
in the marke*t prices of metals."
In speaking of the gold output of individual districts, the minister states,
"Cassiar leads the province," and attributes this condition to a great extent to
the Surf Inlet and the Premier mine, near
Stewart, of which district the minister
says:
The outlook for the future in this
latter district is most promising, and
a largely increased production of gold
and other metals   may   be   expected.

Service For The Thrifty
Thrift is a habit that should be cultivated
not merely to make provision for the future, but because of a desire for advancement and full achievement, and for the
sturdy independence, the happiness and
the contentment that it brings.
The Bank of Montreal co-operates with
the thrifty by means of a Savings Department in every one of its Branches throughout Canada. In this Department a Savings Account may be started with any sum
from One Dollar upwards. Interest at
highest current rates is paid on all savings

ROMANCE   IN   PROSPECTING
More or less romance attaches
to the finding of nearly every
mine, and many of the best have
been discovered by accident.
This was the case with the Flagstaff mine, from which the town
of Flagstaff, Arizona, takes its
name. There was a little settlement in the locality, and a school
house which was upon a hill.
There was a school picnic one
Fourth of July and a pupil wished
to fly a Hag in honor of the day.
But there was no flagstaff; so the
little girl persuaded her father
to erect one. While digging the
hole for his staff, the father
struck a ledge of gold bearing
quartz, which proved to be so
rich that it caused people to flock
into that part of Arizona to pros-
r
pect. Other mines were found
and the city of Flagstaff came
into existence as a busy mining
town.
The Velvet mine, Sheep creek,
near Rossland, was also found
by accident. The prospector sat
down on the hillside to fill his
pipe, sticking his pick into the
ground as he did so. Where he
sat there were no mineral indications that could be seen, but
when he arose to go he jerked
the pick out of the earth and
with it came a large piece of
bornite, a high grade copper ore.
It didn't take him long to locate
and stake the ledge which he
called the Velvet mine. Two
weeks later he sold for $85,000.

P.RIDGE   RIVER   DISTRICT
The reported richness of recent discoveries in the Whitewater district has directed attention to the Bridge river,
Lillooet, and to the country
through which it flows. Prospectors believe that it has possibilities for the placer miner.
There has been mining on this
waterway, both lode and placer,
both lode and placer, the latter
in various forms, for many years.
Those engaged have had more or
: less succes, but there have been
no late reports of big returns.
This is not to be taken as a slur,
because there are properties in
the Bridge river zone that have
promise and of the future of
which their owners, no doubt
with  justification,    have   every
confidence. But it was the find
of recent months in the White
Water country that has caused
the miners'eyes to dwell with
interest upon this part of the
provincial interior. A prospector
named Taylor located on Iron
creek. He developed his claims,
took out considerable gold and
also a quantity of what has been
termed tellurides. Whether the
latter term is correct has yet to
he determined. There seems to
be no doubt, however, that he
has a good prospect. Others
already have staked next to and
all around him, and there will be
a considerable movement through
Lillooet. over the mountain
passes and into the valley of
! promise beyond.

Commencing at the threshold
of Vancouver, and extending!
over an empire there are hundreds of millions of dollars in
mineral wealth yet to be dis-,
covered. Many mines will tie
found in the beaten path, and in
the days to come there will be
mines working on a thousand
hills, for the mineral  wealth  of
British Columbia is practically
und.sturbed, except around the
edges. What British Columbia
needs is a fool proof and a practical mining law, the removal of
the miner's license, encouragement for prospectors and free
assaying and sampling in order
that more men may go out into
the hills and make possihle the
putting into ase of the dormant
and hidden wealth of this wonderful province.

A report from Hazelton states
that Charles Peterson, who
worked for a time at the Premier
mine and left here recently, has
committed suicide in the Hazel-
ton hospital. It appears that
Peterson was run over by a
freight train near Pacific a short
time ago and was taken to the
hospital at Hazelton, where it
was found necessary to amputate
both his legs. It is believed depression, caused by this loss, is
responsible for him taking his
own life, cutting his throat with
a razor.
J. S. Anderson and John Mc-
Leod, this week, leased the Prospectors' Club from H. P. Gibson
and C. 0. Knipple. Both are
