flE necessity of meeting the steial-

I, due   to   war  conditions, presents
iy problems   to   the mine operator.
[the Hidden Creek mine of the Gran-
[Company many changes were  made
.���tails of work, numerous economies
pre carried out in the use of mining
terials, and improved equipment was
ta led in order to meet the  continu
increasing    prices.     The    minor
knges made during the latter part of

unarized as follows:

iftg an excessive amount of powder, as
it was impossible to use a drill in such a
uosition, and bulldozing had   to  be   resorted to.    When the rock blocking the
pocket was  exposed   from  the top th
usual procedure was  to place the powder in a sack, light the I use  and lower
the sack on to the rock with a rope.   If
this rock is covered up, aa   often   happens, the only alternative is to use lad-
den to climb up from the nearest man- j
way below, and   place   the   bulldoze to
the   best   advantage   possible.   There
have been times when several cases of I
powder were used   to elear   a jam  of I
boulders in one of these pockets.
Thus,   at   this  stage   the   saving in
tramming expected from these pockets
proved more an expense  than an economy.    As soon  as   the  work could be
done, a manway was driven  up  beside
the pocket from the 530 level to the top,
with opening into the pocket  at  intervals  of   about   thirty  feet.    Equipped :
thus, it  was  much  easier  to  reach a I
blockade, but the  amount of   powder
required  to  keep the pocket open was
still excessive, and many pieces passing
readily  through the  pocket were too J
large to go  through the chute.   These '
frequnntly had  to  be bulldozed  at  or
near the ahute, making b g repair costs
and wasting much powder.
Sufcei-bful Experiments.
The next experimenf~was to pass the
ro ���!; going into a pocket over a grizzly.
At iirst the iJea of having pieces of
rock weighing fifty tons and more rolling on to a grizzly di 1 not seem practicable.
The grizzly in^talla ,on was made at
the 5.50 Uvel, A bulkhead was put in
the pocket below the tunnel level.
Pram a point below this bulkhead a
raise was driven, b.taking into tne bottom of the tunnel, and grizzly rails
we e tilted into this opening. A second
raise was then driven from above the
grizzly back into the pocket. This tatter raise diverted tne ore out of tlie
pocitet on to the grizzly, and the lower
raise returned it into tne pocket again
below tne bulkticad. The pocket above
this grizzly was further increa ed in
size to lessen the possibility of blocking.
The grizzly rails are eight feet long
and they are placed three feel apart.
Although iiiucii difficulty was experi-
enced in procuring rads that would

|_| ERE is a view of the long  approach  to  the  ��
town.   The wharf last week was the scene of
Stewart wharf frcm the
. an unfortunate accident
when an elderly lady stepped through a hole in the rotted planking, breaking her ankle. The citizens have impo-uined the Dominion and Provincial
Governments to get busy with the settlement of the responsibility for the
approach and wharf, which, it is understood, has been done, but too late to
prevent the serious accident which bef-.'lfa tourist. The picture is an early-
winter scene with a covering of snow over the broken approach, but gives
an idea of the length of the great trest e, which was built in 1S10 and has
not been repaired since except for planks replaced by citizen^.
W. Trayer, a young man who haH
been employed at the diamond drill
at the Forty-Nine mine up Salmon
River valley, arrived from the property last night with a badly cut
hand. Dr. M. W. Bruner attended
him. Trayer fell while carrying a
water pail made out of an oil can,
and received a serious cut in the
hand. Hi., arm was tied up so as
to stop the bleeding and he started
on the long mush to town from the
mine, som twen y milcn. As he
met no pack t ains nor wagons on
the way, he was compelled to walk
the e.itire distance, and arrived here
in a cond tion of sxhaustion.

It is at last commencing to dawn on
Prince Rupert that one of the most
talked about mining camps on the man
is right at her door.
Stewart  is  again   the  Mecca of the
mining   world.   Some  of   the   largest
mining concerns on the  continent have
their men on the ground, these  including the Guggenheim*, Gunn and Thomp-:
son of New  York,   of Bute,   and  the
Alaska Gastineau.   The fame of Stew-,
art is countrywide, and when  due al- J
lowance  is  made for  the more or less
hectic statements, inseparable from all
mining camps, the big  fact stands out
that   Stewart   "has   the   goods"   anJ
some of the most powerful concerns in
the game are taking  a hand in what's
going on.- Prince Rupert Empire.

All the visitors to Stewart district
return with wonderful tales of the richness of the mines; of the promising future of the district, and of the big city
they are going to have soon at the head
of Port!and Canal. They believe in it
and they enthuse us all with their exuberance. We in Prince Rupert share
very largely in the optimism of the
people of the Portland Canal capital.
We are glad to see them prosper. Perhaps we are a little selfish all the same,
but we have a great bond of sympathy
with a new town, and especially with a
neighboring town. It is an advantage
for Prince Rupert if Stewart grows,
and it should be an advantage to Stewart if this becomes a big industrial and
distributing point. ��� Prince Rupert

NO DATE FOR
NEW WHARF
So far as can be learned no date for
beginning construction of the new Stewart wharf has been set. The matter
has been delayed, probably, by the negotiations between the Dominion and
Provincial Governments with relation
to the ownership and responsibility for
the old works and the plans for the
building of a roadway along the foot of
the mountain clear into Stewart as a
continuation of the ore highway, instead of using the long wooden approach, which was built in 1910.
