PREPARES FOR BIG   I
LUMBER BUSINESS
W, ll. Campbell, the lumberman, is
preparing to enlarge his yard and
wharf, having received an endorsement of Canadian engineers to his
tldeflat application on the Canadian
side of the boundary adjacent to
Hyder. Mr. Campbell bandies lumber from both Prince Rupert and
Ketchikan, and, in spite of predictions ihat the winter would be quiet,
he has found a continued demand for
lumber. He plans to maintain a large
yard abreast of building developments.
THE DOLLY VARDEN SCANDAL
AUSTIN GOES SOUTH
ON STORE BUSINESS
G, R. Austin, head of the Stewart
Trading Co., is now in Seattle, having
gone there in connection with his
general store in Hyder. Mr, Austin
is planning to put in a large stock
not only at Stewart, but at Hyder.
His building in Hyder was recently
completed. A. .1. Edmonds is in
charge of the store  In  Hyder.
C.  W.  Calhoun,  a pioneer of  Alice
Ann. is  wintering in  Vancouver
George Bruggie and Ole Evidsen,
Arm section, have gone to California
with I heir wives, pioneers of the Alice
for a well-earned holiday
John IV  McConnell, the well-known
writer and   friend of the prospector,
has  been  engaged  by  the Vancouver
Sun to write mining news.
It is not surprising to anybody who has paid the least attention to
the Dolly Varden matter that the original owners are seeking to show
the Dominion Parliament that the Provincial Legislature was assuming
rights in turning the rich Dolly mine over to the Taylor Engineering
crowd. If the deal ever has the full light of publicity, it is strongly
suspected the lobby conducted by one side of the argument or the other
would  astonish  even  Conservatives.
That the Taylor crowd are none too sure of their possession of the
property, furthermore may be indicated in the fact that the highgrade
encountered weeks ago in the mine is being gouged out with all possinle
speed and hauled to tidewater by dogs. A very costly means of transportation. One would think it better business, were Taylor sure of
possession of the mine, to wait till his logging railroad were able to
once more climb the hill, when the rich ore could be brought down by
carload lot at a great profit.
The Dolly Varden deal has been peculiar all round. During the
lobby at Victoria, the daily press was full of one-sided argument showing
how the poor, horny-handed were to be the losers otherwise. But the true
facts, as borne out by subsequent facts, were not related. The Legislature never contemplated that Taylor was to be given a great mine in
which other men had ventured real money in, in an original exploration
which found the mine. That Taylor built a railroad to the mine on sucn
a flimsy contract that he might not have had assurance enough to take
to court, was an example of business to be criticized. Furthermore, as
logging railways go (and the Tiylor line is not even.a good logging line)
a regular logger would throw one of those between tidewater and the
Dolly Varden at a profit. Taylor, as a matter of fact, built the model
town of Cassidy, Vancouver Island, about as successfully as he built
the Dolly Varden railroad, only he didn't get the coal mines.
There is another matter which gives rise to comment. A deal for the
Dolly Varden mine was on. Why should Taylor deny there was? Taylor
gave the brother-in-law of David Whiteside, M.L.A.. New Westminster,
chairman of the mining committee of the Legislature, authority to sell the
Dolly Varden for $2,OCO,000. half a million cash down. But Taylor
wouldn't sign up when the deal was made. Was it because he had no
right to sign away the mine, or was it because thev encountered high-
grade silver and he had more visions.' The fact that Trerise is a relation
of Whiteside is only incidental, for there is absolutely no business connections. Anybody who-knows David Whiteside knows he is so straight
he bends backwards, and men of that calibre even may be taken advantage  of if you  get their sentimental  side.

ALICE ARM NOTES.
J It is rumored that the .North Star
| fraction, near the Holly Varden mine,
! has been sold to Seattle interests for
$275,000', of which $40,000 whs paid
[down, the balance to be paid in twelve
I months.
Charles Monroe is reported to have
sold a half interest in the Rupert,
Muiiroe and Spruce Tree mineral
claims.
Joe Leblanc and J. B, Stark have
bonded their claims at Clearwater
Lake for $100,000. Development work
will start at the earliest possible date.
The iBig Stick claim at Alice Arm
has been sold to W. .1. Houten and
J. S. O'Brien by J. I). Hancock.
It is reported that a substantial in
1 terest has been sold in the Big Stick
| No. 3 near the Wolf claim, the same
| people being interested in the Silver
j Tip and June fractions near the Dolly
Varden.
The Diamond group is also said to
he under option lo important Eastern
interests at a price between $50,000
and $100,000.
Crosscut Tunnel on E Pluribus Claim is in Ore Spattered With Native Silver.
The Pig .Missouri had already provided several sensations last year
and stalled off this season with another Native silver in the ore In the
crosscut tunnel on tho R Pluribus
claim was shot into and samples
brought down from the mine by William N'oble are the same as the samples of native silver ore out of the
Forty Nine which has the same character in the face of its tunnels.
The Big Missouri, as development
proceeds, is proving to be not only a
big body of ore, but to have sensational values, at least in places. A few
years ago when the size of the Big
Missouri attracted mining men, it was
considered only a low grade, complex
ore proposition. But some months
ago the work on the R Pluribus claim
disclosed a vein of high grade and
worl; is proceeding on  this.
The  Big Missouri group is held  by
the  Pacific Coast  Exploration Co., at
the head of which is Sir Donald Mann.
It is understood that big plans for development of this great ore body are
being worked out.    It has been said
of the property that the returns can
only be limited by the size of the development plant employed. The group
comprises    23    claims    which    cover
what appears to be a mountain of ore.
While   sensational   values   have   just
been   discovered   on   it,   mining  stick
to their original opinion that it is the
treatment  of the  low  grade  on  this
property    which    will    produce    the
greatest  revenue ultimately.

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