Seymour Creek Road
To inr. Editor or Tur. Extrkss:
Sir,—It seems to me, that while
we are waiting for the construction
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, or the V.W.& Y. Railway,we
might bc spending our leisure time
in doing something which would
be ol great benefit to the citizens
of this most enterprising and beautiful young city, and which would
add fame, commerce, and attract
iveness to its already well known
There is no place in the vicinity
ol North Vancouver where so
much good can be done with the
same amount of money as Unbuilding ol a road up through the
Seymour valley. A road would be
a great convenience to a vast number ol prospectors and miners who
are endeavoring to open up the
wonderful natural resources of that
region. It would reduce by over
one-hall the cost ol transportation
of supplies to nearly all those operating in the vicinity ol the water
shed ol the Seymour creek,besides
adding many more willing hands
and sturdy hearts to the already
large army who are now prospecting in the mountains. ,
The construction ol a road would
bring prosperity within reach ol
men nf limited capital. Besides,
it would place the hunter's paradise, which is the Seymour valley
and adjacent country, within easy
reach ol all, and the large numbers of bears that now inlest the
region would soon be Compelled
to seek shelter in some more re
mote and secluded valley.
Let us unite our efforts and our
purses in one grand eflort and see
that this wagon road or packtrail
is attended to without delay. A
fairly good wagon road could be
built at a cost of about >-,.... per
mile, or a good trail at ti00 per
mile. Let us all stop using that
dirty weed called tobacco for one
year and wc will be completely reimbursed for thc full cosl ol this
molt worthy and necessary undertaking.    Respectfully yours,
D. G. Dn I
July 38th, 1908.
Police Protection Needed
To thr Editor or Tin Exr-rass:
Sir,—Will you kindly give ipace
in your esteemed paper for a lew
lines, calling thc attention of the
gentlemen at the municipal ball to
the fact that adequate police protection lor this district is urgently
needed,if the valley is to be known
as a place where people (especially ladies and children ( can reside,
at least with as great a degree ol
salety as is assured to them in tin-
city. There is nothing calculated
to unnerve ladies and children so
much as the presence tl drunken
men, who are to be met on the
pipe line road all too frequently,
staggering towards their destination, which is usually thc woods.
Tha! il bid enough,ind sensible
people will admit tint it is going
the limit when Sundays are made
intolerable by lhe presence of
drunks,  sleeping ofl their stupor
on the roadside, in close proximity
to a dwelling house. As this lias
occurred twice against my place
during the past week, and having
been subjected to annoyance repeatedly by this class of people
using indecent language, I have,
as others must have done, come to
the conclusion that if this very de-
sirai.le part of the country is to be
still favorably known and the female residents assured ol safety
from the possible attacks o( those
who have no control over themselves, a patrolman or resident
policeman is necessary at once,
lie could be called upon to take
charge ol such persons as the man
who, last Sunday afternoon, was
so drunk that he slept lor three
hours on the bridge crossilg the
Rice lake flume; afterwards, loi
reasons easily surmised, giving an
exhibition of how long he could
hold his head in the water running
in the flume. Thanking you in anticipation of publication, which
may result in something being
lone to remedy this neglect of police protection.

The Gas Company
The British Canadian Wood
Pulp St Paper Co., ltd., as announced iu 1 hk Exrktss last week
has opened negotiations with the
city council lor a tranchise.to profile gas throughout the city. The
company is a Vancouver institution and the directorate is composed ol local men, whose Identification with the company is in itstlla

The company owns the townsite
ol Port Mellon, 011 Howe Sound,
and also extensive timber limits in
that vicinity. They are now building a pulp and paper mill 011 the

company luted up a deuonetrnting
plant ior the prosecution ol exper
iments along this line. 1 Tie results
have lar exceeded expectations.
Repeated tests made bj the chemist ol the company have shown
lhat 30,000 leet ol uifiilianiablt
gas is ptodiiced Irom oue cold ol
hr and cedar refuse. The quality
ol the gas is the very beat, being
fully equal to the best coal gas lui
illuminating and power purposes
The process which has Nenlted
ftotn these experiments is known
as the Stanley process, and is considered ol prime importance by
gas experts. The commercial
value ol the invention is hinted at
in the lact that the company has
already received and has leluied
an oiler ol 1150,0110 rash lor the
process lor Hritish Columbia.
The company has evolved a
scheme lor making practical use
of the discovery in coujuction with
the operation ol their papet nulls

communities, to erect a pulp mill
locally in each instance, to niaiiii
failure the gas at each mill and to
ship the pulp lo Poit Mellon lor

A conference between the dis
trict council anil II. li  Swayne,
president ol   thc Swayne  I "|>|" 1
Mining Co., was held at the mini
icipal  ball  Wedin ida] evening.
Ily invitation ol the luiiiii il, I    li
(ilover, assistant   manager   Ot llu
B.C. Electric  Co., was   pics, m
The progresi male   was not such
as to advance the  project to any
matrrial extent    It transpinil thai
thc Swayne  Mining   Co aie nol
prepared to  proceed at ome Willi
the  1 nnsiini imu  ol  Ihe line, the
development ol the propi rlus nni
being su Iln nully advanced to call
lor immediate action.
Mr. (ilover stated the B. C
Electric Co.il prepared to proceed
with the construction and equipment ol the line just as soon as
they are assured of a sufficient
monthly earning to warrant the
expenditure. The cost of building
and equipping the line would be
1350,000, and the Electric Co. are
prepared to carry out the work if
lli. 1 aie guaranteed an income ol
$1350 a menth. This would mean
thai the line would have to be
operated at a loss for a time, but
the company is willing to assume
that charge in view of the present
advantages to the valley and the
future prospects as to business.
. The B. C. Electric Co. was approached early this year by a
wealthy timber company and negotiations for the immediate construction ol the line were practically completed, but owing to the
slowness of the lumber m.irkut.tin
timber company decided to lay the
matter over lor a time. This postponement took place in April and
a revival in the lumber trade will
in all likelihood lead to the resumption ol negotiations, with l.i
vorable results.
I lie information that the attitude ol the B. C. Electric Co. toward the building of the tramline
ll so favorable, gives positive assurance that construction will be
proceeded with at the earliest date
compatible with reasonable business precautions.

Official Report Issued by the
Mines Department, Ottawa
A preliminary report has been
issued hy the Department of Mines
at Ottawa, dealing with the mineral resources of the lower coast ol
British Columbia, but more particularly with the deposits located
in the district tributary lo North
Vancouver. The report is the
work of 0. K. Leroy of the Dominion geological survey.
Referring to the mineral resources ol Lynn creek, the report says
the camp lies eight miles north
ol North Vancouver and tl miles
by trail. It comprises an area of
five squaii: null s, in which some 35
claims have been staked up to the
present. The whole country is
extremely rugged and the narrow
valleys are hounded by precipitous
hills, rising to heights of 3000 and
4000 leet Oa the Hanker claim,
J750 feet above sea level, the ore
consists of a mixture of pyrite and
zinc blende, and occurs in a lm
ciated zone about three fett wide.
An assay ol the om gave negative
results in gold and silver. On the
Mountain Lion and Lynn claims
three tunned have been driven on
the shape ol the lull, and it was
stated ihat some of the ore carried
as much as thiee per cent copper.
The Kemptville claims ate situated up the west fork of Lynn
creek and are about 24110 feet above
sea level. Two veins of almost
pure zinc blende, two and three
feet wide respective."*, have been
discovered, but tlie amount ot development 'imk done has not
been su li' e nl I" prove tlu ir value.
Blende associated with galena 01-
curs on the evening Star claim, to
the n irlh of the Kemptville. On
Angel claim No. 3 small bodies of
yellow topper have been opened
up, and willi additional work some
ol the ore bodies may prove ol sul-
ficia nt size to make them comnier-
11 ill) important Iu any case,
h iwever, owing to the cost of milling and transportation, it will he
necessary to amalgamate the different inleiests in order to ensure
successful results.
The report deals at some length
with mini ral claims on Howe
Sound A map ol the Britannia
mineral zone is given, together
with a sketch ol the operations of
the Britannia Copper Syndicate.
In lhe seven claims owned l.y the
company, the ore consists ol fine
disseminated pyrite, chalcopyrite
in small masses and lenses, with a
lillle galena, while small amounts
of bornite and covelhle occur near
the surlacc as secondary enrichment. The ore is essentially low
grade and about Oo per cent of it
has to be concentrated before being shipped to the smelter. At
present ore is mined only on the
Jane claim, at the Jane and Mammoth bluffs. Assays show 3.84
per cent copper, 0.095 oz gold, and
0.55 oz silver per ton. Jane No. 1
gave 4 to 13 per cent copper and
Ji yi to $2 in gold and silver from
the more massive ore. The total
number oi tons shipped up to Jan.
ill, 1907, was 168,396.
