A spokesman for one of the largest brokerage houses said the trading is about half by promoters and other professionals and half by the public. "The little guy is coming in as never before. Where the hell he's getting the money, we don't know." He said much money comes to the market from Eastern Canada. Then the easterners follow it out, like what they see and stay here. Some of the migrants are not considered desirable by those in the mining industry. "But you have to have promotion," the broker said. Mr. Elliott says most of the major mines in the province he looks on market speculation as healthy, provided there are controls. "Mining is a game of chance," he says. "I think the public is ready to take the gamble. But they are entitled to all the protection they can get." That way, the little company gets enough money to work a property that eventually would become a Craigmont Copper, a Brynnor Iron or an Endako Molybdenum, all now multi-million-doUar enterprises. ing the prayer and Mrs. Ross Hinch reading the story, Billie Fox and Jinimie Brown received the offering.

You hear of the postman who made $200,000 on Pyramid, a Northwest Territories lead-zinc prospect that caused frenzied trading. There is the old lady who picked up thousands of dollars of capital-gain cash from her broker and stuffed it in a bag, and the doctor who made $10,-000 on a tip from a patient on Dynasty, a Yukon copper prospect. At any party, the chances are there will be someone who has been, or will be, or thinks he is, in on a good thing. The talk is of making a killing, or at least a lot of money. Not heard so often are stories of those who lost their shirts when the bottom fell out of a stock. FEVER RUNS HIGH Speculative fever is reflected on the Vancouver Stock Exchange where trading, mostly in mining shares, exceeded 300,-OBO.Ooo for the first time in 1965. The total value of turnover was more than 5300,000,000. Tom Elliott, manager of the B.C. Yukon Chamber of Mines, 'a clearing house of mining information, says the B.C. public has never displayed such interest in nulling. The market boom, which is expected to continue throughout the year despite urgings of caution from some officials, is an integral part of the surge that has hit British Columbia and the Yukon and Northwest Territories mining in recent years. As in the old Klondyke days, the boom is accompanied by a rush of fortune-hunters from the eastern side of the Rockies. They range from big corporations to sleazy promoters. While authorities warn small speculators to study up on a stock before they plunge and to use only money they can spare, others say too much restriction II I COULD M m IDB LOAN HELP HB YOUR BUSINESS? katehewan, having been joined en route by the Winnipeg Rifles.

We were at Batoche where Riel's chief lieutenant, Gabriel Du-mont, was holed up. We were ordered to advance a short distance but took matters into our own hands and stormed down the Batoche hill. We drove them from their gun pits and took the town." The capture of Batoche ended the rebellion: On May 15, 1885, Riel surrendered. Dcmont escaped to Montana, but later returned to Saskatchewan.
