greater than political pull with
the Brewster government.

Peace River District
Mr. Kitto, speaking of the Peace
River district, said that no one
really knew how wonderful tbe
country is. He .stated that within
a few years the steamboats and
railways will be carrying minerals
out of the north country in far
greater tonnage than they will
carry grain and other commodities
from the southern portions of the
province. In addition to the mineral wealth he stated that although
discoveries have not yet been made,
the Hudson's Bay district will
yield quantities of peat which will
go along way toward solving the
fuel problem of the west. He expressed the hope that after the war
the government will be successful
in its plan of settlement and development of the country with returned soldiers. The wonderful
agricultural area of - the Peace
River country, he eaid, had been
only to a very small degree investigated, and declared that the
wealth for the nation lay in the
fertile prairies adjacent to this
mighty river of the north.
Tine other day a man just returned from England, told a Vancouver paper that the people over
there were not worrying about
conscription: in Canada. In fact
lie said that many of them did not
know that there were auy Canadians iignting. We might also say
that there are quite a number of
people in Canada and the United
States who do not know there is a
war in Europe.
Tub French in Quebec seem to
be cold and indifferent towards the
fa_te of France. Through the clergy
they probably believe that God has
'���pserted France owing to its treat-
';>wit of the church. The Quebec
; oiiticians and priests wish to con-
n>i the Dominion, and to dominate all Canada through race,
language and religion- The French
Canadians are some of the finest
people in the world, when they
live ���outside of Quebec, and away
from the spell of conditions in their
own province. In protesting so
strongly against conscription they
are playing into the hands of Germany, and it looks as though the
agents of the Kaiser had been busy
in Quebec, with promises or something else. If no German influence
has been used why all this outcry
against helping to win the war?
Surely if France and England fail
to win the war the war lords of
Prussia will have no mercy or compassion upon Quebec. Their privileges would all be taken away and
every fit man would have to be a
soldier. The leaders of thought in
the pea soup country do not know
when th��y are well off. They lack
'.readth of mind, both in spiritual
and material matters.
A New Mining Field
For some years past explorers
aud trappers have been bringing
back from Northern Manitoba reports of the existence of deposits of
metallic ores. Gold mines are also
being developed iii the region eaBfc
of Lake Winnipeg, and near the
northwestern boundary of the province, in the Lake Athapapuskow
region, immense deposits of copper sulphide ore have beeu discovered, in which veins of gold quartz
are found, and from which good
returns are being obtained. Several properties are now being developed by a syndicate but these
are handicapped in their operations by lack of labor, by the difficulty of obtaining the necessary
machinery and by the lack of
transportation facilities. One company hauled 3,000 tons of ore a
distance of 90 miles to Sturgeon
Landing, from which point it can

.Northern Manitoba unquestionably has mining resources that
only await development to yield
immense returns. The known
mining area is in the region of a
chain or series of lakes and rivers
stretching easterly from Lake
Athapapuskow, Schist and Flin
Flon, near Manitoba's western
boundary to. Herb or Wekusko
Lake, a distance of approximately
90 miles ^The former is reached
from The Pas, via the Saskatchewan river, through Cumberland and
Sturgeon lakes, and the latter is 11
miles from the Hudson Bay railway, at about mile 82. In the
former districts have been discovered immense deposits of copper
sulphide ore, and in the latter
veins of gold-bearing quartz, which
has produced remarkable assays*
and are now beginning, to yield
good returns.
As it is quite natural, the discoveries were first made and development work is now taking place
at each end of the mineral area,
those portions of the district which
are the easiest reached by water
and rail.
This very important discovery
was made in August 1915, by
Thomas Creighton, one of the prospectors for the Hammill-Currie-
Oasken Syndicate, of Toronto. A
large crop of oxidized ore was
found on the southeast shore of
Flin Flon lake. Ten claims were
staked and they now comprise
the property, This was sampled,
but owing to surface concentration
the metallic contents were extremely high, resampling, after shooting
off the top of the ore body disclosed
the fact that the ore would average about $10 per ton in gold, copper and silver, the copper content
averaging 1} per cent. The ore
body has been trenched for 1,700
feet at different points, and it is
thought that it will be over 2,000
feet long. It is narrowest at the
north end and widest at the south
end, where it enters the lake.
Here it is nearly 300 feet wide.
The ore body is broken up in some
parts of the vein, but it is mainly
a solid mass.
The extent of this discovery was
soon known. The owners succeeded in interesting certain prominent
New York and Boston mining
men, and as a result a contract was
let for diamond drilling the prop-
ertv.
The work started with two drills
on March 26, 1916, and continued
until July 15, 1916, during which
time 18 holes were put down, and
over 5,000 feet of drifting done.
While the returns of this work have
never been officially announced it
has been learned on good authority that this drilling with only
shallow holes proved up over
3,000,000 tons of sulphide ore
which at the normal price of copper would be worth $10 per ton.
Besides, the drilling did not extend over 1,200 feet on the ore
body. One can therefore only imagine what a stupendous quantity
of ore is likely to be revealed by
further drilling. The work done
on this property in 1916 cost upwards of 850,000.
Owing to a disagreement regarding terms, no deal was closed
out with the New York and Boston
people.
However, recently, an agreement
for the sale of this property was
entered into by the owners with a
Toronto syndicate, headed by
David Fasken, president of the N"ip-
issing Mining Company, and John
H. Black formerly superintendentof
the Timiskaming' and Northern
Ontario Railway, several millions
being involved in the deal. This
syndicate has lost no time, and already diamond drills are again at
work. Between ��100,000 and
$150,000 will be spent on this property, in drilling and development
work this year.
Should the results of this work
during the year realize anything
like the expectations of those engaged therein, such a body of ore
would have been proven up as to
warrant proceeding forthwith with
actual mining operations on a very
large scale. ThiB will involve,
among other things, the construction of a railway from The Pas, a
distance of 90 or 100 miles, and
tho erection of a smelter at or near
the propejty. To facilitate these
mining operations it is probable
that one or more of the water
powers of northern Manitoba will
be developed. Straight north of
the property there are several
rapids, on the Churchill river,
from which, according to Dominion Government engineers, can be
developed over 50,000 horee power.
'Besides, there are plans under way
for the erection of an immense
power plant, to use at least part of
the 80,000 horse power available at
Grand Rapids, on the Saskatchewan
river, for pulp mills and other purposes. Should this enterprise take
shape in the near future, undoubtedly some of this power will be
conveyed to this and other mining
districts for use in mining operations.
The Idea!
Bourassa
Writing about Bourassa, the
verbose enigma df Quebec, a French
paper in Lewiston, Maine, says:
In reading the writings of Henry
Bonrassa one asks why the descendant of Frenchman, himself a British subject, wishes wholeheartedly
that England and France be crushed by Germany. Let him tell us
frankly the cause of his criminal
hatred. Has he the artlessness to
believe that his paper would be
published much longer in French
if the Germans became masters of
Canada today?
