Shipment of High Grade Ore
From One of Season's New
Discoveries Goes South on
Prince John.
Property Lies Across Glacier
From Big Missouri���Said to
Present no Transportation
Problem.
Some of the best ore seen recently
from the Salmon River section was
brought down last week from the
Motlierlode group, which was located
during the summer by A. W. Balzimer
and Patrick McBride. The group is
situated about two miles from the Big
Missouri cabin over the glacier and
comprises six claims. A shipment of
fifty pounds of the ore is being sent to
parties interested in Vancouver. The
principal value in the ore is silver, but
there is some gold and considerable
Lad. Three veins have been found on
the property, two of them of high
grade. An ass-ay as high as $148 a ton
has been obtained. Although the property is situated over the glacier, transportation presents no problems, it is
stated, for the glacier is dead and
smooth.

HYDER TO HAVE
ITS OWN PAPER
A weekly newspaper, under the editorial management of W. R. Hull, will
appear at Hyder soon. Mr. Hull arrived from Seattle last Thursd^ ami
the plant is expected in a f��w days.
"Rube" Hull is one of the best known
mining writers and all-round newspapermen in the west. He is a pioneer of
such camps as Republic, Wash.. Grand
Forks and other camps of British Columbia.
CINCE the above map waa made there has been considerably more devel-
^ opment in both Bear River and Salmon River sections and a report of
this increased activity is expected to Hppear in the next government report.
This map does not show a number of properties on which a lot of work has
been done and large bodies of ore exposed.    With the close of the season's
work h--re, George ("lothier, government engineer, has got well over both
sections so that the next report vvili be the most complete and up to date
that he has made. The map next ..ear will look different from rhe above
sketch which is published more to jivj a general idea of location and
distance.

STEWART, B. C, Oct  17, 1919
In all parts of the north the residents
are getting ready for the long winter,
and Stewart is no exception. Everywhere there is a tightening up, men are
coming in to fix up their cabins and
resi 'ences, and from all directions come
reports which indica'e that Stewart
this winter will have a real population.
To those who wintered here in the lean

town is onee more on the map, a d all I
indications  are  that  the  early spring
will bring  hundreds  who  will come to ,
' avoid a rush.    It  is reported from the
i outside that things are shaping as they
! did in 1910, when the   town o   Stewart
years this is welcome news.    Last win-! was built in the  snow and a population
ter  there  were some seventy persons j of about three thousand had sprung up
here. That was not population enough
to keep the trails into the business section open. But for all that it was a
happy family, with little sickness, and
hope in the breast of every one. The
past season saw these hopes justified to
a large extent, for development has
taken place in all directions. This win-
tor there will be a considerable population and the Citizens' Association is
making preparations accordingly. The
building known as the "Tin Roof"
bbek, by reason of the fact that the
roof is of corrugated iron, has been obtained for a town hall and place of
amusement. Dances will be given reg
ularly there, and during the winter local
talent will hold entertainments. In
previous winters the schoolhouse, which
is a considerable distance from the business part of the camp, was use J for
dances and entertainments; but it was
a difficult task even walking the distance by reason of the heavy snows.
Although Stewart is situated so far
north, it has, generally speaking, a
mild winter climate. Eighteen below
is about as far down as the thermometer goes and such cold weather is the
exception. But it snows. The very
mildness of the climate seems to add to
the snowfall, for a matter of ten feet is
nothing extraordinary. But like the
rains of Vancouver, which they say are
not wet, the snows here not cold. And
then in February the crusts come, when
navigating over the snow is better than
sliding along rain greased pavements.
The people of Stewart who intend to
remain inside over the winter face the
coming season with a great deal more
heart than the last few winters, for the
before the snow had gone from the
peaks. That was a boom of the artificial sort, so to speak, while the coming
excitement here has been c;.u ed by th.
development of the past year.
It is beginning to look as if next year
might see a provincial election. The
Conservatives have reaffirmed W. J.
Bowser in the leadership, have held a
convention, and no doubt preparations
for the fray are being made. On the
other hand, the Liberals, with Hon.
John Oliver at their head, are busy
also. The Liberals have gained strength
during the past year or so. They will
admit themselves that they lost fast
when they first took power, but that
was through polical inexperience���
rather office-holding inexperience���and
and tfce ideas of the late Premier Brewster and his counsellors, whoever they
were. Although in principal good, as
things are framed politically under the
present system, they were im; ractical,
with the result that things for awhile
were going to pot. The next election
unquestionably will be more bitter than
the last. Which means mud and corruption all over. The people of the
north are not usually concerned much
with politics, but on account of the development which the past year has seen
there are a lot more votes in the north
than before. The coming battle prom-
ses to be a merry o: e and hectic.

THE LONG WINTER
STEWART   LOCAL   BOTES
A Confession
yyiLL soon be here and those
who look forward to remaining
"inside" with the most satisfaction are those whose teeth
���re in good condition for good
teeth mean better health. As
there is no dentist nearer than
Prince Rupert those who have
poor teeth should get busy at
once and see about having necessary work done without delay.

Last week we advertised Hardware and Men's Furnishings because we, like the rest of the uninitiated, expected the boat
to bring everything we ordered.
But the boat didn't bring the goods.
So those who came to our store looking for Hardware and Men's
Furnishing! found none. We are sorry. We humbly appol-
ogize. Even the Grand Trunk Pacific is not infallible. We
will advertise no goods hereafter till we have 'em.
But we have a few dozen
BANANAS
and a case of
LUSCIOUS
ORANGES
that are not very expensive
We also advise you to try our
