Claiming thai the food with which
thej were being served was unsatisfactory and objecting to a Chinese
cook also, all the men employed at
the Premier mine came down the hill
on Wednesday and were joined by the
company's men on roadwork at Nine
Mile. Aboul forty men have quit
worl;. Trouble has been brewing at
tlie mine for some weeks, commencing with* the discharge of a returned
soldier by the foreman who also is reported to be responsible for the hiring 01 a 1 hiiie.se cook.
Tin- men say, however, thai the
principal grievance is not the Chinese
cook,    but    the    qualit)   of the  food.
Some time anu ,1 deputation waited
mi li K.tNeill, general manager, regarding the qualit- of food, and at
that time Mr. Neill declared lie was
buying only the best thai was obtainable from Canadian wholesalers.
Very encouraging news comes down
tlie hill from the Forty Mine mine.
While the full lace of the Occidental
tunnel at this properly remains high

been struck in the Forty Nine turnel.

Three Claims Lying Next to

Are Sold Soon After Deal

A deal which is considered to be of
Importance by reason of the location
of the claims, was consumated In Vancouver last week by I hike Harris, of
New Ha/eiioii, one of ihe pioneer
mining men of the north. Mr. Harris
arrived in Vancouver with an option
in his pocket, but although he put his
proposition up to several local men,
he was compelled to deal wilh men in
Prince Rupert finally by reason of
the apathy of Vancoiiveiites. He got
in touch with Princj Rupert by wire
and made the deal at long distance.
After the property had changed
hands, however, Mr. Harris had numerous opportunities to reconsider
his deal and could have disposed of
the property in Vancouver.
The three claims adjoin the Premier Mine ground on the east. The
presumption Is that the Premier ore
body extends into tlie ground, wherefore   tlie   group   was  called   the   Pre-

TO HAVE YOUR teeth attended
to. Do not wait till aches
force you. If your teeth are in
bad condition it means your health
is being steadily undermined.
Keep them attended to properly
and you will be saved a lot of
misery. Nowadays dental science
has removed largely the former
fear of pain and the old-time fears
are gone.
