discloses a vein 10 feet wide consisting of quartz, garnetiferous silicates,

BIG MISSOURI ORE SKOWIMS���ALL ORE.
Ben Erickson, accompanied by Arthur
E. Bryan, M.E., and L. A. Griffiths of
Seattle, returned from the Comet
group this morning and brought a hundred pounds of very rich ore which
they broke into during the week.
The gold in th- ore is visible to the
naked eye and no douht there is a lot
of it. The matrix of the o e is a siliceous lime. The vein is from 18 to 20
feet and is traceable for the length of
ihe three claims which the group comprises. There are several open cuts
along the outcropping and the vein is
cut by a big canyon at the end of the
third   '!aim.
The t'omet group was discovered by
Mr. Erickson last fail while he was
hun'ing goats. The claims are situated :l miles Up the valley ulioiit a mile
on the north side of Bear River.

A deal looked Jupon as unusually important because it probably is the first
transaction up Bear River made public
this season was an option on the Lake-
view given this week bv Bibeau & McKay.
The Lakeview group consists of four
claims and is situated on the north
fork of Glacier Creek, about two miles
and a half from Bear River. An open
crosscut 80 feet long jiives a depth of
12 feet on the vein, which has then
j been drifted on. Several tons of high
grade ore, assaying more than 300 oz.
of silver a ton, has been shipped from
j this drift. A tunnel 230 feet long was
driven to intersect the vein vertically
100 feet under the surface cut, but no
vein being found the work was discontinued. The vein on the surface is
9 feet wide; four feet on the footwall
is quartz carrying iron pyrites with
some gold values, and the remainder is
a heavily pyritized quartz and slate.

STEWART, B. C, June 27, 19L9
A subject to which the Provincial
Public Works Department should give
immediate attention is the continuation of the road up Salmon River at
least as far as the Big Missouri. As a
matter of fact it would be an investment that would create an immediate
revenue if the road wee to be continued
to the Yellowstone group. The ore of
the Salmon River Valley is so rich that
it would pay even small operators to
ship were a road available. A rord
would make it possible to get in supplies at much less cost. 1 ow is the
time for the department to get busy
on this. The Premier Mines, Ltd., is
building a wagon road, to the big mine
but the work on this road should not
case with th- Premier job. The road
that is being cut along the edge of the
mountain from Stewart to the Alaska
line will connect with the Premier
road so that the ore from the P.emcr
mine can be loaded at the Stewart
v.harf. Other companies this sli'e of
the Premier will use the road as well.
But were the road to be con i el
through the vail y both the benefit 11
the public and the revenue to tlie Gov -
ernment would be increased.
Tickets to the hospital benefit dance

who live on the lower land.

The strike is proving a hindrance to
the progress of this camp, but nobody
is becoming discouraged because the
tie-u of the boat service interferes
wi h travel. Mining men, prospectors
and business men conuinue to come in
but in smaller numbers. There is no
question but that when industrial conditions right themselves again, the
capacity of the boats to Stewart will
be taxed by those whose plans to come
here we e interfered with. While for
a time the   local food  situation   was
precarious on account of the strike,
this difficulty has been overcome by
bri ging food from Prince Rupert by
launch. But the freight Charges went
up, Swanson who runs launches out of
Prince Rupert to Stewart having decided to highgrade Stewart, which was
poor business judgment on his part.
Whether you dance or not, buy a
ticket t the hospital benefit dance and
help open the institution.
NOTICE
Gus Erickson and J. Collier have dissolved partne ship in the Po. tland
cafe, Hyder, Alaska, and all debts are
to be paid by Mr. Collier who will continue the business.

UNUK DISTRICT
INUMELIGHT
Clothier Plans Examination there
this Year--Will Go in from
Alaska Side and Come Out by
Way of Stewart.
All Accounts Agree Unuk River
Region is Highly Mineralized
---Only Eighty Miles From
Stewart.
On account of the attention the
Unuk River country is receiving,
George Clothier, government engineer
for the northern part of British Columbia, plans to make a trip of examination this ce son, expecting to come
out near the mouth of Salmon River,
and thence into Bear River Valley and
Stewart
Unuk River empties into Burroughs
Sound, Alaska. The country which it
. drains presents the greatest possibilities to the prospector, Its only drawback has been its inaccessibility. A
few trappers and prospectors who have
visited the section are unanimous regarding the extensive mim-ralization.
The placer deposits of the Unuk are
derived locally, indicating the presence
of free milling ores. For a number of
years considerable mining development
was carried on on high grade silver
ores but difficulties of transportation
have partially compelled relaxation of
the work.
With easier means of transportation
provided, the whole of the territory
between the Upper Salmon, Unuk and
Naas Rivers, from all known indica-
will prove equally good as. the portion
of the great mineral belt already developed.
The Unuk river heads in  a compar
atively low plateau which also forms
the source of the Iskoot, Naas and
Ninginsaw rivers, about eighty miles
north of Stewart. That interior country, mining men say, is bound to come
to the front when people get the
means to reach  it  without having so
tiny obstacles to overcome.
The government engineer, when he
goes in, will be well supplied and prepared for any obstacles. It is expected that as a result of his examination
he will have important recommendations to make regarding the opening of
the country by trails and roads.

Write or see secretary of Portland
Canal Prospectors' Association for reliable information on mining prospects,
camp conditions, etc., Salmon River
and Bear River districts. Prospectors
are invited to exhibit their ore in show
room.   Dues $5 a year. tf
PAY IS L0N6 TIME COMING.
The men employed on the ore highway between Stewart and the Alaska
line are finding it a long'time between
paydays. The period just past was
about six weeks. The paymaster is
H. Andrews who lives in Anyox. It
would be much more convenient for
the Government and the road gang if
the funds were handled by the govern-
m nt agent in Stewart instead of a
man residing at a privately owned town
It is not believed the fault lies with
the Department of Public Works which
probably knows nothing about che circumstances. If there is any good
reason for delaying payments of wages
at this point it would be a convenience
to the men to permit them to cash
their time cheques.
Dr. J. F. Hogan who spent two
weeks here went south early in the
week and it is understood he is returning to Atlin.
