WITH HIS BRIDE
- asr  J
AN 0��T H E R new strike on Salmon
Ri' er was made known early th 6
week on the returif cf i he Jankowski
I rothers (ti Stewart. They have been
working on claims six miles from the
Spider on the Naas slope of Salmon
River. Samples of their ore showed
native silver shot through it. It is
their intention to continue work all win
ter and an outfit has been sent back tu
thi- property.
From statements made by men who
spent part of this season pros ecting
on the Naas slope it would appear that
the Salmon River formations and character of ore extend much farther than
it was figured early in the season. The
Jankowski ore   is   the  same prevailing
character as the highgrade   ore on this
side of the divide.
Some fine-looking highgrade ore has
also been brought down from the late!
discoveries across the glacier from the
Big Missouri cabin. A. W. Balzimar,
Patrick McBride and others have locations there, and ore which has been
brought is from the Motherlode group,
located by Balzimar and McBride. They
have uncovered a wide vein of this ore i
in one place and have found two veins
during their prospecting of the ground
this season.
George   Clothier,    division   engineer
for the Bureau of Mines, plans   to visit1
the ground probably  next  week   when
he will complete his   work   in  this sec-1
tion for the season.
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Stewart Arrive trom Prince Rupert and

\A/HILE Stewart has made gre t advancenv'iit this year it is generally
predicted that it will not be a comparison ti th? activity which will be
in evidence hen- next summer. Those who are in touch with outside mining
centers declare that the rush to this section will com nence early in the
spring and be a reminder of the rush in February, 1910, while there was yet
fiom six to eight feet of snow. In that pring Stewart built from a city of
tents in the snow to a mining camp of abjut three thousand persons.

OTTAWA, Oct. 3 While there has been ny stateiient either official or
unofficial as to what was definitely contained in the platform submitted
yesterday to the Union members of Parliament by Sir Robert Borden, it is
learne I from reliable sources that the following were its cardinal principles:
1. The maintenance of British connections upon th^ basis of* equal partnership with the Mother Country within the Empire.
2. Revision of the tariff of a specific basis and upon the principle that
customs duties shall be levied with due regard for the interests of the consumers.
3. Extension of foreign trade by encouragement of ocean and railway
transportation and the development of inland waterways and harbor and
shipping facilities.
4. Labor legi lation decided on the princi, les incorporated in the labor
clauses of the Peace Treaty.
5. A standing army of sufficient size only to meet the ne.:e., -,.iy requirements. . n future wars of the Mother Country Canada be consulted as an
essential preliminary to aid being expected.

Sfe.vart.
WELCOMED by the whole town, Mr.
and   Mrs.   J. W. Stewart returned
from Prince Rupert on Thursday's boat,
the occasion being their marriage.    On
Thursday night   more than   a  score of
the business men and old-timers of the
camp participated   in an   old-fashioned
charivari party, which forced the newly-weds to come out and let  the party
in.    Mr. Stewart made a happy speech,
in which he renewed his   numerous and
everlasting predictions as to ihe future
of the camp, for be is among the earliest   pioneers.   There   were   numerous
speeches  of   wel.'ome,   in   which   Mr.
Stewart heard many kind ref. rences to
his  sterling character, his  energy and
perseverance   from   the   days   of   the
boom throueh all the lean years of the
camp.      *.��-�����   .
Next to William Noble, who antedated him here a short time, "Jack"
Stewart h the pioneer of the camp,
having come to thi-> section in 1902.
All of his interests are wrapped up in
Stewart and he has lived h^re practically ever since, and Mr. and Mrs.
Stewart will continue to reside here.
With his brothers, Mr. Stewart
Land Co., owners of the townsite; the
Stewart Trading Co., the Stewart Mining Co., and other enterprises in the
early days of the camp, and it is a tribute to their business ability that all of
these concerns weathered the lean
years and storms of mining camp adversity.

The value of such meetings as were
held here on Monday by the North
Coast branch of the Canadian Mining
Institute is apparent to anybody who
attended. The organization is one of
mining men exclusively. The Institute
aims to aid the mining industry and
much has been accomplished. Just at
present the industry while flourishing,
is nevertheless handicapped and development of the nation's second
greatest resource is retarded. The
tariff on mining machinery for instance
is one of the obstacles in the way of
greater progress.* It is such matters
which the Institute gets busy about.
The institute is a place where mining |
men exchange opinions. The membership is not exclusively technical and is
composed of men who follow mining
and are interested in the industry.

Now that definite assurances have
been received regarding the repairs to
the wharf approach, a subject which
has been a local sore for months seems
a long way toward settlement. During the discussions which took place at
the meetings of the Citizens Association there seemed to be a considerable difference of opinion as to the
responsibility for the cond tion of the
wharf and the approach as welL Mr.
F. H. Mobley, member for this district in the provincial legislature, on
the question of responsibility produces
a copy of the order-in-council passed at
the time the Provincial Government
formally turned the old wharf prop-'
erty over to the Dominion Government.
In light of the following order-in-coun-
eil it is apparent that the condition of
the wharf was not the fault of the
Provincial Government. As to whether
the negotiations between the two governments over the repairs caused the
delay is a matter of opinion, The
order-in-council reads as follows:
To his honour the   lieutenant  governor I
in council:
The undersigned has the houor to re-
| ort for the consideration of the council the following:
That in the yasr 1909 a wharf was
built at Stewart, Portland Canal, at
an expense to the Province of $6511.12.
That subsequently the Dominion
Government built s connection with
the whsrf, and upon the undertaking
of the Domin on that the wharf would
be maintained and operated by the
Dominion ami that no charge would l��-
maile to the public for the use of the
wharf the Province agreed to transfer
the title t�� the wharf to the Dominion
without eomixsti ation.
And to recommend lh.it the said
wharf tf transferred I..    th-    DSswMwI

At-
development  'clause  carried  out  this
hogging of   the  conntry  would soon
stop.    In Cariboo, out of probably 3000
leases held,   the  requirements  of  the
improvement clause have  probably not
been carried out on   more than  75 holdings.    Mr. Sloan has informed holders
of such claims in Cariboo that  he cannot permit the placer resources  to  bei
any longer  tied  up from  development
by such  methods,   and  that  in futuref
the  law will  be enforced.    If  that  i
done  there is  plenty, of  new  capita
available to go into Cariboo urWer such
conditions where it can get a fair run
for its money instead of being the. subject of blackmail.   The  policy of  the
minister of mines will bring new life to
Cariboo. ��� Mining   and    Engineering

|J. J. O'Neill and P. H. Falconer, have
i finished their season's work in the Salmon River camp.    Next year  a good'
map, and what should be   a very inter-1
estinj?  report  on   the   geology of  this
wonderfnl   mineral   area  will   be  published, and should be   secured by all interested in  the  mining future of this
listrict:
There is a much   too  prevalent  idea
[ among prospectors and   others  of   the
mining fraternity   that  these  surveys
are of  doubtful   utility   and   that   th*
time and money used   in   the* pre partition of the reports could be devoted to
more   useful   purposes.      To  illustrate
this   point  of  view    I   will  quote   re-
A number of Ainsworth mlneH are
foi mine a syndicate to work a claim
or group of claims known as the
Fourth of July, located on Coffee
Creek, at ;i point above the Kden and
Crescent group there. Some ore is reported to be in sight, and it is Believed
that several carloads can be taken out
anil shipped during the season.

One in-
view    I
J marks I have   heard recently,
[dividual asked:
"What in hell is the use of  the geologists and their reports anyway?"
Another:   "Show  me   the geologist
[that ever found a mine."
The Geological Survey branch of
[the Mines Department only exists be-
Icause the economic and scientific re-
|sults achieved justify its existence and
are of vital importance to the well-
being   of   the   mining'   industry.        t
���chief functions are to indicate to pros-
Ipectorsand others interested in mining
���where certain rocks and conditions are
���favorable to the deposition of minerals, |
land to study and work out the economic geology of establishec camps.
IConcretc Illustration.
An ounce of fact  is  said to be worth
la ton of theory, and in   this connection
[1 will give a concrete illustration of the
���first kind and of which 1 know  personally to show how mistaken is the view-
jint referred to   above.    During   1914
ieorge E.   Winkler   wrote   the   Mines
Department at  Ottawa for  a  copy of
memoir No.   13   by   Chas.   H.  Clapp
i'hich  deals   with   the geology of  the
) ithern end of Vancouver Island.
The  rocks  of  the  area  referred to
re de ignated   b> Clapp as   the   Met-
ehusin   Volcanics.     He  speaks   of  the
hear zone deposit     in the   Last Sooke
'eninsula as  having  greater  prospective value   than   those  in   any  of  the
other formations on  the  southern  end
of the Island,   and expressed the  opinio that thdse were not   mere   surface
Concentrations,   but    that   where    the
nies were strong persistent ore should
De   found   in   them     to     considerable
I'pths.
'���Hind the Sun loch.
Winkler,   who  had a   good   working
knowledge of geology,   was impressed
vith   Clapp's  description   and   conclu-
lions and decided to   prospect   that district.    In July, 1916,   he  went  to the
irdan river, and taking advantage of
he extreme low water in  that   stream
vorked   down   the   canyon from   camp
uf  the   V. I.   Power   Co.,   ami
liseovcred   what   he   was   looking   for
fcelow Camp  2, about   two   miles from
(he   mouth   of   the   river.    After  con-
���derabls   surface   work was  done  the
���operty  was    taken   over   by   R.   H.
tewart, for   some   years   tnrinager  of
lie Consolidated Mining   and   Smelting
Development  under direction of
���'tewart has proven   a mine which
promise of becoming one uf the
|rg*st  copper producers on the coast.

CAPTAIN MORKILL
IS DECORATED
Among those receiving decorations in
Vancouver at  the hands of the Prince
of Wales was Capt. Alan B. Morkill, a:
brother of D.-.  B.   Morkill of Stewart. !
His photograph is published in the Vancouver Province, which says of him.
"Capt Alan B. Morkill, 7th Battalion, who receives the Military cross
a.d bar, left Victoria with the 88th
Battalion, being transferred to the 7th
B.itt.f on in France. With that unit he
served through the battles of the
Somme, Vimy and the later battles of
the war. He was wounded at Pass-
chendaele and rejoined in 1918. He was
awarded the M. C. for his work in the !
battle of Amiens in August, 1918. The
official notification of the award was as
follows: 'Thi> officer got his company
to his assembly position without casualties, despite heavy shell and machine I
gun fire. Next morning he led his com-
pany in the attack, and as soon as he
att.nned his objectives -et about organizing a defensive line under intense fire.
The following evening he .-gain did
good work in taking up a pesiti ��n along
a canal. His energy and coolness set
an excellent example.' Capt. Morkill
was awarded the bar to his M. C. for
gallantry in later battles."
Mrs. Harry Tanner arrived from Se-
.ttle last week and joined Mr. Tanner
here.
