Hiestlon, "Is Cobalt the greatest win-

lit: I

[At  that   time   an   ore   chute,   what
liners call a re-enrichment in the ore
pily. was encountered.
This vein within a vein is four feel

Mr. Brugg) and Mr. Bomervllle haw'
.in Intereal In ihe Doll) Varden. but
they haie various Interests in other
camps in ihe north, and they bring
with them a cheer) budget of mining
news. Every da* almost, ihe> say,
new  discoveries  are  being   made.
On the Kl Ornii/.ti known locally us
the "Spanish mine," a vein ot ore
three feet wide and running ff)00 to
the ton has been si nick.
From La Hose a shipment ia on the
way to the Trail smelter  which avOr-l
ages $325 to the ton.
Mr.  Somerville and  his  associates
haw bough!  the  Homestake group of
live  claims  and   completed   the  first ���
payment     Ore   from   tjhjs   prokierti ',
averages 180 in gold and silver.   Thej
lead has been traced for 3,000 feel bj
tunnels and  open  cuts, and   a  good
ileal   nf diamond   drilling   has   been
done.     Major   W    Bell-Irving,   Of   this
city,   is   associated   with   Mr.   Somerville in this property.
Fred Matson has cut a ID-foot vein
in a .".O-foot crosscut, carrying 16
ounces of silver, on the Matson group.
On the same lead Jim Peacock, on
his ground, has ">o feet of ore which,
on a checkerboard assay, gives 'I'l
ounces to the ton.
Kennedy and McFarland, on a claim
adjoining   tho   did   McFarland   group,)
ftm) two (TlHr*tt  ledges averaging 201
ounces of sil veer.
The people ot his district ar�� getting their rods in pickle for those
who maV be responsible for t-e miserable mail service given here.
Sooner or later the responsibility will rest where it belongs, and so bitter is the feeling over this matter that no end of hand shaking will oveer-
cotne in, either now or at election time. Can anybody, living in a civilized community, imagine a district so large and so potentially important as this, not having received mail since December 24?
Contrast with this the mail service into Fairbanks, Alaska, hundreds
of miles over the snow with dog teams, three times a week. Stewart is
but 150 miles from Prince Rupert by water.
The fault would appear to be on account of the lack of co-operation
between the local postoffice, the heads in Vancouver and Ottawa. Here
is a country which is trying to develop, and the worst obstacle that could
be placed in the way is placed there by the Governmnt which is pnding
heaps of money with commissions of one sort and another on natural
resources. Within a mile and a naif of Stewart is the town of Hyder,
Alaska, with better than a weekly mail service, and a longer and more
difficult water trip from the point where the mail is dispatched. One
would thing the postal authorities would do something if even to put a
better appearance  on the  Canadian  service.
A representative of this newspaper called on Inspector McLeod in
Vancouver who could hold out little hopes for a better service immediately. It appears that Swanson, <vho used to have the contract, wants
$85 a trip from I'rince Rupert, alternating with the Grand Trunk Pacific.
The G. T. P. (government-owned) has demanded $100 a trip, Mr. McLeod
says. Temporarily the G. T. P. is supposed to be bringing the mail fortnightly for $50 a trip.
The authorities at Ottawa will not accept Swanson's terms and, meanwhile, on December 8th, Inspector McLeod instructed the Stewart postmaster to put the mail on the G. T. P. boat under the old arrangement.
Another serious drawback to the local service is the length of time
it takes to bring the mail from the boat to the postoffice. Not many
weeks ago the Prince John arrived at an early hour and left about ten
o'clock. The mail was not brought to the post office till 9 o'clock, and
those who were leaving on the boat could not get their mail, even after
having waited for two weeks for the boat to bring it to town. Inspector
McLeod says his instructions to the Stewart postmaster were to arrange
to bring the mail to and from  the boat at $4 for the round trip.
There seems to be a lack of community service somewhere, as well
as trouble at headquarters where they have closed their eyes to development which is taking place here. We have heard bfore the old plaint,
"Americans are getting control of all our mines, our timber and our plup."
That is just what is transpiring in the Portland Canal district���Americans
are stepping in and chancing their money right under the nose of B. C.
capital which is still hesitating, though it has every opportunity of investigation and initail speculation.

Vancouver and Southern
Cities Looking Forward
to Great Period of Activity in Vicinity of Stewart.
(From Vancouver Mining Record)
Reports from the Salmon River section nf Northern British Columbia and
Alaska presage great activity. A large
shipment ,of ore from the Premier
mine will be made Boon, and ii Is said
thai the returns nhen made public
will be a surprise, for the ore is osti-
mater1 at a Ion figure to run 1200 a
ton.    Ore is now coming down the hill
| by sleighs, and ihe crew is working
off a dump containing about !),000 ions.
Work in the mine has hen resumed.
Some weeks ago R. K. .N'eill. general
manager of the Premier Mining Co,,

Take, Time Now
TO HAVE YOUR teeth attended
to. Do not wait till aches
force you. If your teeth are iu
bad condition it means your health
is being steadily undermined.
Keep them attended to properly
and von will be saved a lot of
misery. Nowadays dental science
has removed largely the former
fear of paiu and the old-time fear*
are gone.
