A beautiful sample of ore from the
���^rnler group, containing wire silver
ii .1 well covered with the white metal.
��� is brought to for the Portland Canal
Prospectors' Association exhibit on
Thursday, This ore was struck during
trie week, and it is reported here that
Pat Daly, who is in charge of the Spider group, estimates that $10,000 worth
nf ore was blown down in three shot*.
I he deal on the Spider group was made
this spring by R. W. Martin of the
Mineral Hill, who took tlie Spider under
0 tion for $30,000 and then turned it
over to R. W. Wood, president of the*
Premier Mining Co., that owns the famous Premier mine. Mr. Martin returns an interest in the ground. It
sums a coincidence that Pat Daly, the
man who brought R. K. Neiil, of the
Premier, into the country, should be
the man to strike another rich one, and,
slso, that Mr. Wood, who is such a
urge   holder   in   the   Premier,   should
ilia\e more wealth figuratively* thrust
upon him.
I'at Daly was down from the Spider
s'roup during the week and reported
that some splendid ore has been ex-
poaad.    He has a force of seven men at
I work. Three veins have been found.
Two "f them are small, one being two
and a half feet of high grade ore. another showing 18 inches of high grade
and another big vein measuring 24 leet
utoss. These showings are being ex-
| osed by surface cutting.

Telegraph instruments are being
installed in the Rattray building on
Fifth street for use of the Government Telegraph Service. F. W.
Dowling, in charge of this district,
came here and completed arrangements. The installation of this
service will be of much local benefit. While ths service in the past
has been good enough for a smaller
.settlement, the growth of Stewart
in the past few months has made it
very difficult to get along with the
old telephone communication with
Anyox, to which point all messages
had to be 'phoned and then put on
the wire from that point.
A crew of men is also at work on
the line along the mountainside,
putting it in shape and generally
improving it. Snowslides in the
winter and rockslides occasionally
interfere with the line, and efforts
are being made to so place the poles
as to minimize this trouble.
INCREASE FORCE
ON BIG MISSOURI
About eighteen men are now employed at the Big Missouri, including
the diamond drill crew. Preparations
for continuing active operations this
winter are being ma e. Log cabins will
be erected, and the logs for tie se have
been cut and peeled.
Work in the tunnel is progressing satisfactory . The tunnel has been driven
a distance of about fifty feet. Reports
from the diamond drill indicate that
satisfactory progress is b ing made, the
hole being more than 200 feet and in
ore.

THIS picture shows a portion of the Stewart-Salmon River ore highway,
extending from tlie end of the long ap roach between Stewart and the
wharf, to the Alaska boundary, where it will connect with the road up Salmon River va ley. It is expected this road will be completed in a few-
weeks. It is orly a mile or so long, but is around the edge of a granite
mountain, and the estimated cost is $30,000.

In order to make it easier to get to

owner of this property. It is understood it is not the intention to begin
work there as yet, but the work is to
make it easier to visit the property for
examination am sampling when de-

What Capt. C. H. Nicholson, manager of the G. T. P. Coast Steamship

his description of tiie mining development, the great mineral showings, ami
does not overlook the marvelous scenic
wonders. Captain Nicholsen gives a

STEWART, B. C, AUG. 29, 1919
the visit of Lt. Col. C. W. Peck, V,
C, D. S. O.. M. P., last week is appreciated generally by the citizens of
Stewart, among whom he is well
known and who feel assured that he*
acquired while here a better knowledge of conditions and our needs. Col.
Peck, among other of his experiences, had the pleasure of dodging the
holes in the long approach to the wharf.
Were it not for the fact that there
seems to be a difference of opinion
among our two governments as to
which shall adopt this approach for the
future, Col. Peck, no doubt, would have
seen to it before this that a measure of
repair at least were put in. However,
when there is no certainty as to who
owns a thing, it is rather difficult to get
action. Probably were somebody to
sort of pre-empt the approach, and
start in using parts of it, for firewood,
both governments would immediately
evince a proprietary interest. It is a
serious subject with the people of Stewart and the Portland Canal district. A
heavy tonnage of supplies passes over
this wharf every time   a boat comes in
and that is from two to three times a
week, for, in addition to the large
steamers which come once a week,
there are launches which bring freight.
It has been pointed out before that not'
only is the approach not safe to horses,
on account of the roiten planking, but
it is dangerous as well for pedestrians,
who have to keep their weather eye
open or go through and suffer, if not a
broken leg at least a badly barked shin,
which is about as bad. It seems a pity
that this much needed repair should not
be under way i ow, for the Dominion
government by next mont i no doubt
will be building a n��w wharf, and in
the course of th_> next few weeks, it is
hoped, the Stewart-Salmon River ore
highway will be well on toward completion if not entirely I'm shed.

more lumber.
