Victoria, December 2.—British Columbia in 1926 establihed a new high
mark fn point of quantity production
of minerals as well as in the value
of minerals ploduoed. Hon. 'William
Sloan, provincial secretary and minister of nu'ines, has just issued a summary of Uie mining activity in the
present year, together with an estimate of the aggregate production for
the twelve months ending December
"l next. The figures compiled by
John D. Galloway, provincial mlner-
ologist, indicate that the aggregate
value of the mineral produlion for
1926 will be approximately $67,718,400
compard with $61,492,242, the aggregate value of. the production in 1925,
an increase of approximately 11 per
cent over the previous record produc-1
tion in 1925,and -thiB in the face of j
lowered average metal .prices as com- j
pared with 1925.
The following table gives a comparison between the production in]
1926 and 1926: >

"It can now be confidently predicted that the mineral prooutioin of
the provinoe for the year 1926 will
again establish a new high recordt"
said Hon. Wr. Sloan, in referring to
laming industry during the present
the excellent showing made by the
mining industry during the present
year. Notwithstanding slightly lower
average metal prices the total value
of production shows a very substantial increase over thut of the previous year—the record year. It will
be noted that quantity increases
Were made in all -the various pro
ducts of the industry excepting coal.
This shows a very satisfactory condition of the industry with production
steadily increasing regardless of fluctuations in the metal market. As
would be expected, the tonnage of ore
niined and treated in the province
shows a considerable increase: lt is
estimated that for the year 4,600,000
tons of ore will be producer as compared with 3,849,269 tons in 1925.
"Since 1921," went on Mr. Sloan,
"which was a year of acute depression in the metal markets of the
world, Brfftish Columbit has been
making rapid strides forward in the
output of metals tnd minerals. The
following figures will show this progress:

Mr. Sloan pointed out   that   while
the uMtmtote progress ofthe mining
industry ls already indiotaed. by production figures, otihr important factors are development and exploration. The present year has ogoln
eclipsed all previous ones ln the history of the province in the amount
of development of mineral properties, while prospecting has been fairly active. Tbe success which has attended miining in the province in recent years has directed attention to
our vast potential mineral resources,
with the result that our undeveloped
mineral areas are being carefully examined by the representatives of min
ing ctplital.
"British Columbia's uouu-ibution to
the world's Wealth has been a nata-
ble one," said thie minister, who pointed to ithe fact that since mining' com.
menced in the province in 1852 the
total value of mineral production has
been approximatelyome billion dollars, or, tl be exact, $989,000 000. It
is interesting to note, Mr. Sloan
pointed out, as showing the   manner

mated total mineral production ofthe
the province 'in 1926, as compared
with 1925, ls therefore not due to on-
ci-aased metal prices but to larger
outputs of the metals. Hon. Mr.
stated, and he pointer out that about
the end September a serious decline i
commenced in the market price of
sllvler, and in a short time the price
has declined to about fifty-one and a
half cents an ounce, compared with
an average piiae ln January of 67.79
cents on ounro. The future of silver
selemls uncertain, with the possibility
of the present low price level being
maintained for so-mle time. It is esti-
maJter- that the average silver price
for the full year 1926 will be somewhat below the figure given in the
above table. The prices of copper,
lead and zinc, while slightly below
last year's average, are high enough
to yield satisfactory profits to the
miners, and the market outlook for
these metals is excellent. It would
appea that the present prices.or
higher, are likely to be maintained
ln briefly reviewing tne mining
situation of the province, Mr. Sloan
stated 'that he esaimated that the
1926 production of both placer gold
and lode gold win show Increases
over that of 1925. The increase in
placer -gold being accounted for by a
greate production from the Cariboo
district, where the Kafue company's
-dredge on Antler creek, and the Cedar Creek company's property have
both made increased outputs this
year. Shortage of wate for hydraul-
iclng operations curtailed production
from mjany properties in various
paras of the province. . The activity
ln testing of alluvial ground ln the
Ahlin, Laird, .Similkameen, Ca iboo
Quesne 1 divisions is likely to result
in a greater yearly production of
placer gold in the near -future. Lode
gold production is expected to show
a small increase during 1926, accounted for by a la ger output from
the Premier mine and increases in
the output of gold from the low grade
copper mines, all of which have increased -production during the current year. The closing down of the
Suit Inlet mine du ing the year
stopped an important -source of gold,
but increases froml nearly aa parts of
the province have more than offset
this loss.
A production, 10,900,000 ounces
silver, is estimated for the year, said
Mr. Sloan, who pointed to the fact
that this is a la ge increase over the
1926 output of 7,654,844 ounces and
constitutes a record for sjlved , mining in the province. The minister
stated it waa interesting to note that
the silver production of British Columbia is expected to equal or be
greater than that of the province of
Ontario,! which for twenty years has
been in the lead. All the silver producing districts of Uie province have
contributed to the increase in the
output for the year.but probably the
greatest percentage increase is from
the Slocan district, where the mining of silver-lead-zinc has been Intensively carried on..
The decline in the price of silver,
the minister of mines stated, may
have somje effect in possibly retarding
future prolutlon in the Slocan district, where in many of the mines
silver in the most important value in
the ore. Approximately 80 per cent
of the silver production of the prov-
inc e ooines from mines in wlhich. silver value is of less imuoifance than
the other metals, such as gold, corp-
per, lead and zinc contained therein.
While the decreased rveenue fdim a
loweered silver price is to be regretted for these mines, no lowering
of production in the future may be
anticipated as a consequence. There
are very few mines in British Columbia which are essentially silver mines
with no other values, so that it Is not
expected that the lowered silver price
will advsrsely affect future, production to any great extent.
Copper prodution in 1926 is estimated at about 91,000,000 pounds a
large increase over the 1925 output of
72,306,432 pounds, the previous high
record production for the province,
due in large part to the output of the
the province comes from' the Port
Steele, Slocan and Ainsworth mining
Zinc is another metal, Mr. Sloan
stated, which has shown a large increase in production. It ds estimated
that approximately 135,000,000 pounds
of the metal will be produced as compared with 98,257,009pounds- in 1925.
This increas Is due to a much greater
production from the Sullivan mine
and to increases from several properties ln the Slocan district.
The estimated figures of coal and
coke productions for the year supplied by Chief Inspector of Mines
Dickson shoW a decrease in ooal aut-
put of 5 per cent and an increase in
itlhe quantity of coke produced of "32
per cent as -comlpared with 1926. The
coal mines are now working to capacity, and a large promotion is expected in the last two months of tiie
year. The decrease in the tonnage
,of ooal mined has been due to fuel
'competition and an unusually small
demand for coal tor domestic purposes in the first nine months of the
A slight increase ia the value of
building materials and miscellaneous
minerals is expected for the year. In
1925 an output valued at $2,843,110
was made  and atpproximlately $3,000,-
000 is expected for 1926. It is believed that constructional work was
somewhat above normal, and, in addition, a greater output of miscellaneous minerals ls anticipated.
The exploitation ,of non- metallic
minerals, apart from strictly building
materials, has not yet received much
attention in British Columbia, Mr.
Sloan pointed out, but more attention
is now being paid to the possibility
of utilizing the non-mietallics in connection with the various manufacturing industries.
The report points out that it is believed that an average number of
prospectors has been in the hills during the season. The most oiupor-
tant new discovery reported is that
eight miles from Topley, a station
fifty-nine miles east of Smithers on
the Canadian National railways. The
showing has only slightly been developed as yet, but reports indicate that
it may prove to be a large body of ore
of milling grade, with values mainly
in silver and gold. Another property in the northeastern district,
which is not quite a new discovery,
but which has received attention,
i. the Trout Lake group, situated
about 36 miles northwest of Fort Graham on the IFdnley river. It is reported that the property has an exceptionally large surface showing of
silver-lead-zinc ore.
The profits accruing from themdn-
ing industry of British Oolumlbia are
indicated by t he dividends declared; the total profits are, however,
greater, as profits made by individuals and -private mlninm; companies
are not given publicity as dividends.
In 1925 the dividends declarel were
slightly over six -million dollars, and
St is expected that the -dividend total
for 1926 wflll amount to about seven
and a half million dollars. As an indication of how profits may be much
greater than dividends declared, the
Consolidated oompany last year
sthoyed in its annual reportfor 1925 a
j net profit of $10,780,636.98 (atter de-
1 ducting federal and provincial taxes)
as comoared yith $3,230,045 declared
as dividends. Similarly, the Granby
company made a profit but no dividends were declared.
"The steady growth of the mining
industry," concluded Hon. Mr. Sloan,
"means much more for the province
j by reason of the distribution of
rrioneyin payment of wages, supplies,
etc., than in the actual dividends declared. From every angle the industry is now in a prosperous and
healthy condition. The search for
new ore bodies os continually expand
ing, with the desult that our known
reserves are greater than ever before and continually growling; aur
production is steadily mounting; aur
processes of oretreatment are highly

Victoria, December 1.—Premier
Oliver, speaking at the annual meeting of the Liberal association of the
city of Victoria last evening, took
occasion to congratulate Hon. S. F.
Tolirile and also the Conservative
party upon the selection of Dr. Tolmie as the leader of that party.
"I have esteemed Dr. Tolmie very
highly," said Mr. Oliver " He is a
pretty good farmer like myself. If
he has as good judgment in politics
as he has in farming," continuel the
premier, "the Conservative party as
to be congratulated over that which
has characterized it for some time
"I promise," added Mr. Lliver,
"that I ill give him a run for his
money. I will stay in the legislature and fight Conservatism as long
as I have breath in me.'
The premier said that he had
heard the Kamloops meeting called
a revival, and Dr. Tolmie had said
that every one was saved but himself. Mr. Oliver added that there
migfat be something in what the doctor said. There always had to be a
scapegoat which wauld carry the
sins of the people, and this might be
tie role that the doctor was to fill.
The premier added that the Liberal party was not downhearted aa a
result of the date federal election in
the province. This defeat had stlmu
later the Liberals in British Columbia and the electorate might expect
better things in future.
He said he himself was in good
fighting form, and was looking forward to a determined fight tor the
next two and a half years.
Hon. \V. H Sutherland expressed
the view that there was not a constituency in the province that the
Liberals could not win if they set
aside pessimism and got doyn to

Vancouver.—A giant merger of
timber interests in British Columbia,
Washington and Oregon, involving
$400,000,000 of capital, is likely to
•eventuate from plans now under
way, according to "The Daily Provinoe." Several of the British Columbia mills—a quarter or a third
of the whole—are said to be favorably inclined to the amalgamation.
Montreal.—Despite the lateness
of the season new immigration to

Poems From Eastern-Lands
The Alienation of a Friend
Gently and soft the east wind blows,
And tben tbere falls tbe pelting rain,
Wben anxious tears pressed round you close,
Tben linked together were we twain.
Now happy, and your mind at rest,
You turn and cut me from your breast.
Gently und soft the east wind blows,
And tben tbere comes tbe whirlwind wild.
Wben anxious fears pressed round you close,
Your bosom held me ae a cbild.
Now bappy, and in peaceful state,
You tbrow me off and quite forget.
Gently and soft tbee st wind blows,
Tben found tbe rocky height it storms.
Each plant its leaves all dying shows;
Tbe trees display tbeir withered forms.
My virtues great forgotten all,
You keep in mind my faults, though-small.
 From the Shi-King.

Lending a Hand to Mother Nature
Fifteen head of shorthorn stock

his ranch near High River, Alberta,
were purchased for the Kirkwood

announcement mr.de by Prof. W. L.
Carlyle, manager of the Prince's
Canada's largest muskrat ranch
is now being: established at Swan
Lake, about 40 miles west of Quesnel in central British Columbia.
There are about 4,000 muskrats on
the farm now and it is estimated
that the ranch will eventually have
an annual output of 50,000 pelts.

I.   Over -000 potential cut-throats. Measuring

Unfortunately Mother Nature made
no provision for the growing army
of Isaak Waltons in her scheme of
things. Man supplements nature in
re-stocking the trout streams of the
Canadian Pacific Rockies, through
the agency of the Department of
Marine and Fisheries, which conducts
artificial Cut-throat spawning and
hatching operation in the Rockies
each spring.
Authorities have estimated that
only about three percent of all
Cut-throat trout, eggs naturally
■pawned, hatch. The reason given is
the desire of fish spawning at other
times to feed on the newly laid eggs
with the result that the male Cutthroat, after driving off the enemies
fertilizes the eggs too late, when they
have absorbed so much water that
they cannot absorb the fertilizing
From 87 to 90 percent of eggs
artificially spawned at Banff and
Spray Lakes, hatch under artificial
methods. This is how it is done:
Towards the end of March Just
before spawning time the trout are
caught in nets, stripped, and returned to the streams, while the
eggs from the female and fertilizing
fluid from the male Cut-throat are
mixed. In ten weeks the young fry
is ready for its new home in the trout
stream where it reaches the len-rth of
over eight inches in about fo jr j ears.
The annual spring harvest of
Cut-throat eggs at Spray Lakes—
each female giving from 800 to 1,800
eggs—is about three-quarters of a
million. At present 624,824 Loci.
Leven trout eggs, 172,918 Lake
Superior Salmon Trout, 515,906 Rainbow, and 5,600,000 Pickerel e: gs are
batching in the Banff Hatchery. The
hatch for 1926 will also include one
million Cut-throat eggs imported
from Wisconsin and 250,000 from
Spray Lakes, makin-j a total oi over
eight and a naif million eggs hatched
in the Canadian Pacific Rockies to
provide sport for anglers.
The outstanding example of the
good results accruing from tnis work
begun in 1914, is the growing annual
catch of Lake Superior Salmon
Trout at Lake Minnewanka, about
nine miles irom the C.P.R. Banff
Springs Hotel, while Spray Lake-, an

Edmonton.—The first plant in

and eggs under the Otteson process,
will be operating in- this city by
June 1st, according to P. Johnson,
managing director of the Johnson
Fisheries, Limited. His firm paid
$10,000 for the rights of the territory. The initial capacity of the
plant will be fifteen tons a day.
Victoria.—The new drydock just
completed at Esquimalt, Victoria, is
the second largest in the world and
only 29 feet shorter than the Commonwealth dock at Boston. Thia
giant dock, hewn out of solid rock,

Wl citwe each ttiving
'limit lbs. til milk yearly
to supply the milk
wasted annually in thc
0. a.
According to a schedule showing
tho division of dairy products, published by tho United States Department of Agriculture, the annual cost
of wasted milk in our nation would
make a happy pay day for tho army
and navy and still leave an appropriation sufficient to build enough
combat planes to satisfy even the
militant Mitchell.
The amount of milk split, soured,
rejected and otherwise wasted annually, ls 3,339,986,000 pounds. This at
$2.25 per hundred would approximate annually tho stupendous
amount of $77,399,685.
However, a cheerful note rings
through this tale of economic loss to
a nation. Tho same report shows
a 1924 increase of 108 pounds ot
milk per cow over 1923 production.
Deducting this from the figure previously glvon, leaves a loss through
waste of only -13,607,325, a mere
bagatelle, compared with our national debt of more than twenty billions of dollars.
Tho Increased yield per cow Is due
to heightened efficiency on tho farm;
and future years promlso even
irreater increases.
Dairymen havo discovered the futility of feeding non-paying members
of their milk herds. They have
learned that losses lurk ln Insanltarj-
milic production. They havo discovered the advantages that lie la
swatting the bacteria that hide ln
unclean stables, undipped, un-
brushed flanks and udders of milk
cows and unsterillzed utensils. As
time goes on, the unavoidable waste
cf milk will bo more than offset by
intelligent feeding, complete sanitation'and more efficient herd management. * .
