FOR BANK AT
LAST OPENS
Bank of Montreal Opens Branch
on Thursday in old Premises
Of Stewart Land Company on
Fifth Street.
Lack of Banking Facilities in
District has been one of Great
Drawbacks to Progress this
Season.
Institution Opens Under Most
Favorable Circumstances With
Large List of Depositors-
Permanent Manager Coming.
A BANK has at last been opened in
Stewart. Several banks were understood to contemplate starting here,
but it remained for the Bank of Montreal to come in first. The bank
opened early Thursday morning in the
old premises of the Stewart Land Co.,
which moved next door so as to occom-
modate the needs of the bank.
The temporary manager is F. W.
J Harvey of Victoria who displayed a lot
of energy and initiative and had things
in running order before many even
knew a bank was really in. It was not
long before a queue of depositors was
taxing Mr. Harvey's speed at calculation.
As tne first institution to come in the
Bank of Montreal ought to get the
united support of the district. The
lack of banking accommodations here
has amounted to a handicap to general
b usiness.
Goose Creek Looks Good.
The Fitzgerald brothers are exposing some fine ore on their group on
Goose Creek in the Bear River section.
A large body of ore is in evidence
there. They also have an excellent
showing on Salmon River.
Camped at Bunting's.
The Provincial road survey crew in
the Salmon River section is now in
comfortable quarters at Burning's
'���amp. Good progress is being made
with the work.
Will Represent Stewart.
Grant Mahood left for Prince Rupert
in his launch on Tuesday to represent
the Portland Canal Prospectors' Association at the Industrial Exhibition.
Ore samples from this district went
forward a week ago.

STEWART, B. C, Sept. 19, 1919
Preparations are being made for winter by the various mining companies
in this district. To those unacquainted
with thi* part of British Columbia it
might seem a little early. But the
snow comes early and stays late on
the hills. Juat how many men
will be employed here ia difficult to estimate. But it is a certainty there
will be a substantial payroll and that
will insure a good winter camp.
Among the companies which will
continue to operate are the Premier,
Bush, Big Missouri, Forty Nine, Mineral Hill and the New Alaska on the
Alaska aide of the line. These are all
in the Salmon River section. Up Bear
River the Lakeview, recently bonded
by P. Welch and associates, will probably work and the George copper prop-
properties may work as well.
All of these properties are now in
shape to withstand a hard winter. Of
course the mainstay will be the Premier
This company will employ a large force
It is understood shipments will be
made to the Tacoma smelter. During
this summer the efforts of the Premier
Mining Co. have been devoted to road-
building. This road will soon be completed. Attention will be devoted to
getting ore out as soon as the road is
completed.
On the Big Missouri it is reported
that the diamond drill exploration is
proving highly satisfactory. A similar
report comes from the Forty Nine
where another diamond drill is operating. From the Forty Nine comes abo
most encouraging reports as to the
operations generally. The short tunnel which was driven to intersect the
vein enc untered a full face of high
grade ore which is being drifted on.
Satisfactory reports are also received
from the other properties.
Altogether the season's work has
been satisfactory from the development standpoint. On account of the
great showing made this season, next
year will undoubtedly be a big one and
will see much advancement here.

THIS sketch makes plain the mistake of H. R. Plate, a New York engineer,
who drove his tunnel out of and alongside the ore body and quit work when
just back in again. R. K. Neill of Spokane crosscut from the Plate tunnel into
the ore body which has been determined to be of great size and value and bids
fi-ir to become one of the world's greatest mines. The Plate tunnel has been
driven ahead 350 feet by R. K. Neill from the face where Plate stopped. It
has still about 200 feet to go to get under the most easterly outcrop. Two
crosscQts-Nos. 4 and 5-have also Deen driven into the ore body 40 and 6 feet
respectively.

FROM OTHER CAMP S.
Germany Is in the market for enormous quantities of copper. The fine red
metal Is constantly going up since the
.smelters closed down In the Boundary.
The United States, Mexico and Canada produces more than 80 per cent.
of the world's" silver. This should be
distributed from New York rather than
J/jndon as it is at the present time.
It was In 189"i that Old Ironsides
and Knot) Hill in Phoenix were put
���n action through the efforts of Jay
P, Craves.   Since that time the mines
issued by tha smelting company, and
which states that threee times the
quantity of lead was disposed of in
Juna as during the preceding month.
Development work done at the Silver
Glance mine, at Bear I^ake, by J. W.
Power, has resulted in the phenomenal
early day high grade dry ore producer
being put in a position whereby a considerable tonnage of ore can be shipped at any time, but the owner of the
property is on the lookout for a buyer.
The annual general meeting of the
shareholders  of   the   Gibson   Mining I
Company,   Ltd.,   was   held   at   Kaslo j
last week.    The shareholders elected I
" rh��eniX haVe ,)roduc.e.d more than   the following directors for the ensu-
ing year: D. K. May, Spokane; Robert
Gunning, Spokane; Joseph Daschbach,
Opportunity, Wash.; E. H. Latham and
P. E. Archer, Kaslo. The directors!
later elected Mr. Latham secretary-
treasurer of the company and Mr. May
*ns re-elected to the presidency.
GUARD AGAINST FIRE.
$56,000,000  worth  of gold,  silver and
copper, and lt Is not yet all dug out.
The Merritt Herald wants to have
Iron Mountain diamond drilled. While
working on some iron claims on that
mountain, Lucky Todd struck a lead of
I arium and white quartz, carrying high
willies in silver. The iron capping in
that district no doubt covers up much i
lead, silver and copper. Drill it and |
find out.
The Aberdeen mine in the Nicola is
being unwatered by T. J. Corwln.
Experts representing British capital
will make an examination of the lower
workings.   If their report is favorable
|a mill will be built to concentrate the
low grade copper ore that abounds in
this property. About two miles from
the Aberdeen about five feet of bornite
[is showing iu the tunnel of the Vimy
[I'.idge.
From all    points    of    the province
Icome reports of general activity in con-
liiectlon with the search  for minerals.
|tiie development of claims or thp progress of regularly shipping mines.   In
^io other section of the world Is there
go promising a field for legitimate investment.   The derisive "sea of mountains" is a veritable paradise for the
lardy prospector.   Already almost all
Jimwn metals, precious and base, have
Leen discovered and yet those who are
fiosted say the surface has only been
(cratcbed.
The present indications are that the
period of reconstruction will, in B. C,
i-ltness  a  great  development of  the
lineral resources of the province. One
ipeful sign is the number of mines
���ing reopened    after   lying dormant
Jnring ahe war, and this not always
by new purchasers but by owners who
know what they are doing and have unbounded  faith  In  their mines.    With
lore settled labor conditions, outside
Honey is again beginning to seek this
kind   of   investment.     If   pernicious
"wild catting" can  be avoided it will
>t be long ere this province will be-
ome the biggest ore producing country in the world.
A strike of more than ordinary im-
ortance hns been made near Merritt
>n Iron Mountain.   The find is in the
iture of a lead carrying good values
in silver, but the extent has not yet
^een determined. This lead shows
BliUJO in considerable quantities in
fcontact with white quartz, the silver
falues appearing in the barium.
Recently the Florence mill at Prints creek, put on a second shift, and
WIS hoped  to  be able  to  maintain ���
Ills steadily, unless something unfore-
[-������ii happens.
A crew of men is being put to work
|t  the Oold  Cure  mine  on   the  south
Drk of Kaslo creek.    It is the inten-
of the company to carry on some
iirfaee stripping  in  order to explore
lie vein on the surface.
