patches of high-grade silver sulphides,
the whole averaging low grade.   Tue
tunnels were driven en this showin, i
at intervals of about 2(1 feet I clow the
open-cut    The first tunnel found the'
hanging-wall,  on   which   theie  are a
few inches of   good-grade   ore.    The
lower tunnel had not found any ore
al the time of my examination.   Bern
2en or 300 feet down the creek fro i
this another tunnel was being driven,
then in about 130 feet, in country-reck
all the way.
I!. C. Silver Mines, Ltd. ���This company   has  recently   leen   In corpora Wd I
for $1,500,000 by O. ii. Bush, and has
taken   ovei    the    Lake    and    O'l.ea'y
claims,  lying   between   the   Premie
ground and the Hush Mine-. Limited
and some claims  north  of the  !ntci-
national.
The Spider group of three clui ,
i elonging to Bill Hamilton and Charlh
Larson, of Stewart, is situated north
of Long Lake. The group wa ; bonded
early In the spring to Trite ��� & Woods
owneta of the Premier mine which
did seme development work, but did
not exercise (heir option, the propertj
reverting to the owners. Some very
high-grade silver ore was found in a
small vein, but not enough work wa
done to prove anything. The claims
are nmv under option to W, A. Me
loche, who will commence operations
as soon a- possible in the spring.
All that country from the 'V.i-'h
Mines. Limited, to the Spider claims
ha  ������ 1 ��� en -taxed this summer.
Some fine specimens of-high-grade
ore were brought in from some claims
that had be��u staked over the glacier
from Long lake, on the N'ass Rivei
slope. The stakers returned, bull' a
c::i i;. and nre putting in the Winter
working on their claims.
Mineral Hill Group.���This property
has been under bond and development
for the past two years, during which
lime very extensive work has teea
done under the supervision of Al
Harris. There are several fine showings of high-grade ore in the surface
under which several hundred feet of
underground work haa been doi i
The results have not been what wa;
hoped for, so tar as high-grade ore ia
i ii cerm d, but the developmnet of
milling-grade tonnage is a different
proposition. The property Is under

Town Incorporation Crops

Over Till Later When It

Government Urged to Put
Lots on Market to Meet
Demand for Cheap Building Sites.
Stewart is taking on city airs, judging by interest taken in various public
matters. During the week two meetings of the Citizens Association were
held, and the discussions were lively.
The subject of incorporation of the
town was revived and it is probable
that a move in this direction will be
made in the near future for, under
present conditions, as exemplified last
summer, it will be next to impossible
to get the necessary street and sidewalk
repairs. It is not tlie Government
policy to repair sidewalks, and the
Stewart Land Co. is not expected lo
do so.
Therefore it is for the residents to
look after their own places and do the
best they can until such time as the
town is either incorporated and in a
position to levy against the lots held
purely for speculation, or some other
means is found.

An answer was sent in effect that, if

A telegram was sent to Hon T.D.

Town   incorporation   talk   has   been
revived.       There   ought  to  be   some
method by which  the scores of lots be
ing held  purely for   speculation  would
be made to cont.ibute  toward the up-
keep of B'reetfl,  sidewalks, etc.   S me
of the sidewalks have gone  to luin and '
stie2ts require   to be   brushed  of the:
vegetation wh.ch has  grown  up  since
1918.    In light of  the fact that unde-j
veloped property is   held so   high, and
the burden   of   upkeep would   be  too
great for those   permanently  residing
here, it   would   seem   nai-nable   that
the property held   for   speculation   be
mode to pay its share.
