DELAYED PAY IRKSOME,
(    Probably on account of   misunderstanding the  pay of Ihe roa<l  gang is
1 allowed   to become overdue.   As the
; time cheques are   non-negotiable the
men are finding the situation irksome.
It is doubtful   if  Hon.  J.  II   King,
minister of public works, knows a thing
about the  situation.   Otherwise  it is
believed the matter would be recified
at once. -Under present conditiwia on
, one of   the   johs   in   this vicinity men
' were laid off  and   given   time cheques
which were not   negotiable.    This   has
been   the   cause   of   much   complaint.
. The paymaster for this district lives at
Anyox and whether It i-i on   account of'
the mail  service  or  what,   the fact is
that   the   paydays   ordinarily   are   six
weeks apart.    Government | ayment of
business accounts connected  with local
pulilic   works   is   even   slower.     The
remedy is easy  by placing the local account to the credit of the local government agent instead of leaving it with
the government agent at Anyox.

of the same character of ore as is
found in the Premier. The ore is thick
with native silver and argentite.
Mr. Noble also brought a piece of the
highgrade which had landed in the
blacksmith's forge following the shot
which disclosed it. ihe htat of the
fire drew beads of silver to the surface
making a very pretty sample which
with other samples has been sent to
Sir Donald Mann, head of the Pacific
Exploration Co. which has the property under bond.
The ore was found in the new open
cut started this summer 300 feet north
of the cook tent on the Silver Creek
side. The highgrade is exposed by a
crosscut open cut six feet deep and 25
feet long with no foolwall yet. This
is the best open cut developed thus far.
ne!.  which is at an elevation  of 3,460   fl was only during   the past week that
the cut was deepened and in course of
this work the highgrade was struck.
There are 25 open cuts on the E Pluribus claim, all in good ore which has

tevant, a well known engineer who

STEWART, B. C, July 18,   1919
A subject which the newly organized Citizens Committee might well
take up is the mail service. Under
present conditions it is inadequate and
will become more so. A weekly mail'
service is all right when boats do not
find sufficient business to bring them
here oftener than once a week.
But there now are three and sometimes four boat calls here every week,
it seems reasonable to expect the post-
office department to give as good service as the boats do.
We understand a Prince Rupert man !
has the mail contract by the year. He .
has been making trips in his launch to
Stewart every other week, alternating
with the Grand Trunk, and both carrying mail gives a weekly service. But
there are other boats in the freight
and passenger business which could as
well deliver mail also.
The old system  was excellent  when
only a  handful  of people  were  living

It is about time the   Dominion public
works department got busy on the new
wharf and   the  repairing  of  the   long
approach   which  runs  from  the  main
street  of  Stewart  direct   to   the    old
wharf.    The present  wharf  is  not  in
good   condition  for   it   has   stood   for
some nine years.   Though the  most  of'
that     tima     there    were     no   heavy-
calls upon it nevertheless it has become
more or less  dangerous   with   age   and
the silt  ,is   out   so far   now   that   the
larger boats could not  dock   there ex- j
cept at high tide.    The department has
posted a sign on the wharf  disclaiming
responsibi ity in case of accident.    Private  interests   might follow   the   Gov-'
ernment's example and   placard broken
sidewalks similarly.
"i he prac ice of try'ng to bog more
territory than they can legitimately do
assessment work on, as indulged sometimes in mining districts, is pernicious.
The practice retards dev lopment. The
average prospector cannot afford to do
annual assessment on many claims and
the relocating methods of the claim

N his paper dealing with the prospector ami how to encourage
him, Mr. J. P. McConnell says that without prospectors there
could bo mi mining industry because there would ho no discoveries except those romantic accidents they read aboul in fiction bul
seldom saw in the hills. Mineral discovery was usually the resull
nf laborious, painstaking investigation following ahum certain well
defined rules.
lino nf tin- greatest assets the province could have was an industrious intelligent prospector. Bul prospectors were J ik*��� otliei
people. They must live and (hoy are entitled to make a profit for
themselves. Usually the prospector's standard of living Is of the
simplest. The simplest kind of shelter, usually a log cabin perched
mii a bill, hand-made hunks, stools, tuldes and a Bheet-iron stove
with riding and pack saddles, tools hanging on the walls complete
his  outfit.
Always before his enchanted vision rises the time when lie wi
.-ell a prospect for a million and live in luxury the f'-l of his days,
II is absolutely necessary that the business "f prospecting should
be put on a basis and surrounded by safeguards which will give l"
the prospector a reasonable assurance of substantial reward. This
is necessary to keep the ranks of the prospector full. There are
lower prospectors in tlie hills today than at any time in the history
of H. i'.. and this is a Condition which should ho remedied without
delay.
The logical evolution of the prospector should be into the position of operator on his own at count.    Hut whether he In me-, an
operator on a large or small scale Im1 should he assured of a permanent and fair proportion of the profits accruing from hi^ dis-
COV ol'ies.
The ever-present problem with the prospector is the grubstake
About the purest form of gambling is grubstaking a prospector. YpI
there Is none more fascinating nor one in which the ante costs h =-
in proportion to the pot. Unfortunately in the past the prospector
has found in Vancouver a poor outlook for a grubstake, M">t. of
the prospectors in British Columbia have had l" seek their grub-

GATHER ORE FOR
OUTSIDEDISPUY
Prospectors Association Takes
Up Important Matters Affecting District-New Member
Wanted.
Urge Government Sampling
Works for Northern Part of
B.C. and will Take Subject up
with Sloan.
Samples of ore from the properties in
this vicinity will be  aent to  the annual
exhibitioni in Prince Rupert  and  Van-1
couver.   This was  the decision  of  the
Portland  Canal  Prospectora'   Asaocia-
tmii at iu meeting Sunday afternoon.
Letters were read from the   Vancouver
Chamber of  Mines, which  will  be in
rlmrge of  the  mineral  display at  the
Vancouver  Exhibition,    and from   the
Prince    Rupert.     Both    organizations
will have exhibitions in September.    In
both instances the cost of  shipment  of
the samples will be defrayed by the ex-'
hibilion managements.
W. B. George   and   J.   W.   Stewart
were selected to look after   the  collection of ore from the  Bear River  properties.   This duty in the   Salmon River
section   will fall  upon  Dan   Lindeborg
and Al. Harris.    In   the Marmot River
section  H. C.   Magee, William   Fraser
and A. Gilfillan will   look after the ore
and  Danny  Hume  at  Georgia   River.
Property owners are requested to assist
in every way and endeavor to send displays to Vancouver and Prince   Rupert
that      will      be    the     most      representative which ever went out  of  this
district.   Special preparation*   to feature   the  mining   displays   are   to  be'
made this Fall by both cities.
WW. Ruah suggested that the management* of Exhibitions should exercise more care in the matter of se��-
rviiating the ores by districts.
Secretary Kellerman urged the members of the association and owners generally to fill in and return the information blanka which he aent out some
time ago.
Following   remarks   by  WW.   RU8h
it was decided to prepare, a pamphlet
containing information about the district, including smelter returns, for
quite a number of properties have
made trial shipments.
The practicability of a government
sampling works at some convenient
spot in northern British Columbia was
pointed out and it was decided to take
the subject up with Hon. William
Sloan, minister of mines.
A vigorous campaign for new members will be started and in this regard
the president, H. P. Gibson, made a
short ad res?.
