started by June 1.    Five thousand feodiW&ese ate the Divide, comprising three
claims located on the northeast -lope
of Divide fake, about three miles north
of tbe Spider group, at present being
developed hy the Algunican' Development Co. The formation on the Divide
and Spider are of similar character.
On the Divide group are three well defined ledges on which but little work
has been done. Practically al the work
consists of prospecting the high grade
ledge on the divide claim which gave
an assay of $89 1.66 in silver to the ton
as well as a small gold return. Owing
to the extremely high grade values ob-
tai led from this group, the management   int -nds doing     the     maximum
of diamond drilling is contemplated.
LIKES STEWART AND WILL BJILD.
Mrs. Ethel Martin of Seattle was
here last week and niter sizing up the
business outlook purchased a corner
lot and let a contract to Wm. Fraser to
build a frame residence. She is convinced Stewart will be a busy camp for
many years and has returned to Seattle
to make preparations to move.

Not since St .-wart went on the map, j
and probably in the  history of  but few
camps of its size, was a more success-'
ful dance than the   Hospital ball   which '
was organized to put the   Stewart General   Hospital   in   shape for   business.
The financial success  of the affair may
be judged from  the  amount of  money
rai.'ed.    The hospital board   wanted   to
raise at least  a  thousand dollars  and
the receipts were nearer eighteen  hun-
dred.
Besides  the  sale  of tickets and re- j
freshments,   many    other    means    of
raising money were adopted with great
success,   in  addition to   the substan-,
tial   donations,'  the painting  by  Mrs.
W. R. Tooth. ".Mountie on   the  Trail,"
brought 8200.     Kate  Ryan   raffled   a
sofa pillow for $70.     Mr.   Meyers of
Hyder put  a gum   vendor  machine  at
the service of the hosp tal  and  it contributed well to the fund.   The Stewart
Xews Co. and Miners   Social   Club  donated supplies  for the thirsty and  the
cakes and sandwich booth at which the
members of  the   women's    auxilliary
presided, was worked  overtime.    Geo. '���
Frizzed of   Prince   Rupert  was  established in tha classroom giving  lessons
on a mecanical subtractor while in the
men's cloakroom  Roy Moseley worked
a separator which  many northern  men
recognized    as    a    method   gone    but
not forgot.
Considerable money was raised by
the songs of the vocalists from the
Ocean View and Stewart Hotel cabarets,
when it began to rain small change.
As money-getters Jimmy Tolmie's
educated feet in clog dancing were unusually nimble. The fortunate holders
of tickets were Dick Bell who won the
painting by Mrs. Tooth, and George
Smith who won the   Kate Ryan pillow.

As spring has come again, and the
snow is fast disappearing, it is time
once more to draw attention to the
winter's accumulation of occular and
sanitary offense which gathers in most
yards when the snow is deep and the
weather cold. There is talk of having
a clean-up day, but many will not
wait to make a special occasion of it.

It is a very easy matter for one to
forget to take out his free miners' cer-
tifflcate, but not so easy to straighten
out the tangle which results from such
oversight. All miners' licenses expire
May 31. Nor is it advisable to leave
this till the last minute. By getting
busy with this matter at once a lot of
time will be saved and worry and congestion avoided.
