SOLID SILVER IN PREMIER MINE
George   Cameron    came  down
from   the Premier  mine, up   the
Salmon River Valley,   last   week
and    reported  that   during   the
mining  operations   he drove   his
pick  into the face of  the   tunnel
and   it   stuck   in   soltd     silver.
^ome beautiful samples of silver
ore   from  this  mine   are   being
exhibited around   town.    Among
well   known    mining   men   who
visited the mine during the week
were H. B.  Price of New York,
W. H. Young  of  San Francisco,
and W. W. Warren of  Butte.

The streets of Stewart are receiving
a "spring- cleaning." Buildings long
out of use are being repaired and rer -

business activity. "*
Snow_ is fast leaving the higher

packs ready in preparation for the
search for mineral.
Oldtimers seem to find difficulty in
assimilating the fact that Stewart is
again "on the map."

In February, 1910, we started the first
newspaper in a tent on Fifth street
