ST. PATRICK'S DAY
A London cable to Vancouver papers
tells of a bi;i flotation there and the

B.C. Silver Mines and the Salmon-
Bear River Mining Co. The total cap-
tal involved in these deals

IbyO.B.Bush,   president   of   the  three
ompanies.    The properties  were ex- j

connection with this deal the
Daily Province says of Mr. Bush: "Mr.
b.B.Busb, president of the three com-1
snies has been notably successful in
;\inK and controlling some of the,
ust properties in the Stewart d.strict.
i 1910 he bought the claims known as
Premier and later acquired by K.K.
Veil and associates. He also bonded
d t old the properties known as the
prty Nine, Unicorn, Yellowstone, i
id the Moos3 property in Alice Aran
fi,trict. Recently O.B. Bush and H.J.

Returned Soldiers Aid Commission so
as to compsehend the needs of those

According to the plans it will be a substantial structure and a decided acquisition to the town both as a matter of
architecture and convenience. It will

Another vein of high grade silver
ore has been encountered at th* Forty
Nine. This was broken into f om the
drift off the Forty Nine tunnel. The
work passed through a small dyke to
the right and is now following t e new
ore. Vince Lade, foreman at the Forty
Nine, who took sick on the trail back
to the mine two weeks ago, has recovered and gone outside for a well-
ear ned rest.
No social affair of the season provided a more enjoyable evening than the
St. Patrick's Day dance under the
auspices of the ladie* of the S.C.A.
The hall was well filled and some visitor were present from Hyder. A fea
ture of the program was the singing of
Pete Murphy, the silver-toned tenor,
in songs of Old Erin.
As the hour grew late some of the
Down-easters organized a quadrille and

the same boat.    Anotner  old timer who

in New York where a number of  large

May Prospect en Reserves-
Effeclive on April 1 the Indian Reserves in the entire province will be
opened up to both Indian and white
prospectors. This, however, applies
only to the mining of gold and silver.
Application for permission must first
be made to the Indian agent for the
district before prospecting can commence. With this application must be
exhibited a certified copy of a provincial miners' license or some other
statement of authority to prospect.

on Hartley gulch which enters Bitter

STEWART, B. C, Mar.20, 1020
If the past week's activities  are to
be taken as a criterion, a lot of development may be  expected  in   Stewart
even before the snow is off the ground.
Several real estate deals were  made, a
number of business places are in course
of   alteration  preparatory  to  the   increase which will  come with the rush
of men  from   the  outside  as soon  as
spring   really   opens.       Some   mining
deals, though small,  were  negotiated.
A number of carpenters are  working
and tbe   welcome   sound   of   saw  and
hammer is heard again in a town which
after starting off with a   rush in 1910
subsided into a condition of quiet  beside which the dead mining camps  of
early days sounded   like .booms.     But
Stewart is having a revival caused by
the development of the past few years
proving up ore bodies of great size and
rich in the high priced white metal.
many  weeks   past,
iness has   been   increasing   it is only a |
matter of  time  when  a larger vessel
will be required.

The decision of the Stewart Citizens
Association to purchase the old firehall
building is considered good business.
The price that is to be paid is probably
less than the lumber could be bought
for today. Its removal to the site donated for a City Hall by the Stewart
Land Co. is a matter of time. With
very little work the firehall can be remodeled so as to not only provide aj
house for fire apparatus, but with room j
left upstairs for public meetings.
