1 once m ire seeing extensive
development, it is interesting to
recall the address of George
Clothier, district engineer, be-
fore the International Mining
Convention in Vancouver. Mr.
( lothier did not qualify his
statements with any of the fa-
rite verbosity of some mining
igineers of these times, who
appear to be over-cautious or
ultra-conservative. He said exactly what he th��ught of the
possibilities of his district, and
made predictions which have
since come true. Mr. Clothier's
address follows in full:

The delay of the department in Ottawa in the matter of the repairs to the
Stewart wharf and the lon;.j approach
was a subject of criticism at the organization meeting of the Stewart Citizens Association on Wedne-day night.
A telegram to Col. Cy Peck, member
of the House of Commons from this
district, was sent urging immediate attention to this very necessary improvement and pointing out the dangerous
condition of the wharf.
Roy Clothier was elected provisional
chairman of the association and instructed to name a provisional executive committee of five. This committee will draft bylaws somewhat after
the lines of the early-day Citizens
Committee which made such a splendid
record. A meeting for lermantnt organization will then be called.
The need of such a body i^ felt at
this time, as there are several matters
affecting the camp's welfare which
should be attended to by a body of
this character.

"THERE IS NO DOUBT AS TO THE
FUTURE OF STEWART. IT WILL
BECOME A LAR6E, PERMANENT
CAMP. AND I INTEND TO STAY
WITH STEWART."
That is the statement of Sir Donald
Mann, builder of the Canadian Northern Railway, following his inspection
! of mining development in this district.
Sir Donald arrived    last   Sunday and
j wi,l leave today but intends  to return
, and spend   the   rest  of   the   summer
jhere.
Sir Donald some months  ago  took a
, bond on the Big Missouri. Development has disclosed rich ore similar in
character to that found in the famous
Premier mine. Sir Donald paid a visit
to the mine and was pleased with the
way the big mineral body is showing
up. There are twenty claims in the
Big Missouri group and the body of
ore is tremendous in size where exposes .
Sir Donald also is the owner of the
Portland Canal Shortline railway which
extends up Bear River Valley for
fourteen miles. Along this line mining
development has been proceeding in
the past nine years since the rails were
laid, and the ore showings indicate a
large tonnage for this line eventually.
Deals are pending and some of these
properties may soon pass to the control of large companies capable uf opening them up.
With regard to his plans in connection with the railway Sir Donald has
nothing to say at this time. As for
the Big Missouri, he >aid development
will continue with as large a force as
can be utilized.
The railway builder is looking very
;it, though he admits some hard climbing will do him a world of good. That
is why he plans to spend the rest of
the .-iimmer here, he said. He likes
this section i.f country and, in add

With the hot weather now upon us it
is time to give the camp's sanitary
conditions more attention than is necessary in the winter time. In an unorganized camp such as this many per-

Oldtimers of the camp recall how the
situation was admirably handled in
1910 and till the boom subsided. In
t'.ie early days here the Citizens' Committee was selected as a law and order

But Um hurtsoa ta i
will some day be the outlet for all
that portion of the province lying
north of Portland Canal and back:
of the Alaska Straits.
Salmon    lliver    has    had"  the
greatest attention due to the remarkable     development    of    the i
��roperty of the Premier Mines,
ltd.,  formerly known   as   the
Hush   which   the  old  Salmon-,
Bear River Co. owned. The property was worked for a couple of I
years by\ New York interests, who,
failed to develop any commercial
ore.    The   present  owners   came
���long   and,   with   practically no,
work,   opened   up  a  high   grade,
shoot nf ore lying in the mineralized zone of altered green stones
which the former people had exploited for a couple of years.
Estimates from average samples taken, all along the present
Iworking tunnel, for the length
exposed along the ore shoot and
the depth of backs from the aur-
face give rather startling gross
lvalue of possible ore. The company constructed a sleigh road
last summer from the mine to the
dock, a distance of 16 miles,
which has been utilized this win-
ter for hauling down ore. Some
2011 tons hav been shipped, and
about 450 tons have been hauled
to the beach and will be shipped,
as soon as possible, and it is expected that 300 to 400 tons more
can be taken out this winter.
Returns on the ore shipped give
.$338 per ton, which will give a
minimum production of $260,000
for Hon tons, in say six months,
from a property as yet being
worked up hand. Truly a wonderful showing of gold-silver ore.
RICHES OF SALMON  RIVER.
The   very   fact   that  so  much
work had been dune by thoroughly competent mining men without
results, and the disclosure of such
a  remarkable  shoot of ore,  with
other shoots only partially opened
up, gives every property or show- I
fng in that section the possibility
of developing into a winner.   Two j
other  properties   above  this   one.;
the  Mineral   Hill  group  and   the
Big Missouri, have surface showings    practically    identical    with
thai   of the   Salmon-Bear   River
property.   The Big Missouri heretofore    has    been    considered   an
immense deposit  of complex  ore'
requiring unlimited capital to develop and treat, but the uncover-
ing of high grade ore apart from \
the old known deposit has placed
the property on a different basis;
entirely.   I   understand   that    the
present, bonders, D. D. Mann and
associates, intend diamond drilling the new find the coming season.
should this prove satisfactory,
it will mean the opening up of a
section of country in the Upper
Salmon lliver Valley for which1
railway transportation wiH be
provided, and which will, I believe, beoome one of the great
mineral producing areas of the
province, other properties, as

The two sections represent a
length on the Eastern Contact
Zone of possibly a bundled miles.
Should the balance of the zone
north and south prospect with
results equal to this portion, tire
statement inadea moment ago
that this zone v4P make the biggest "mineral producer in the
province seems very reasonable,
and. looking into the future, the
possibilities of rail transportation
along the eastern Hank of the
coast range from the Iskut River
south to the outlet to th�� sea by
the Bear lliver Valley, may not be
so very remote at that.
There has been some little activity in mining up the Stikin"
and Iskul rivers, but the navigation of these rivers has been the
handicap to  the  prospecting  oJ
lliese    sections.      Fl i     reliable
information from Dominion public Works officials. I believe these
rivers could be made navigable
for six months in the year for
light draught river boats. I went
up the Iskut a year ago, but unfortunately rati into a snow storm
and was able to see only a snfall
portion of the country along the
river. I expect to make a trip
this year from the Iskut south
along the east of the coast range
to lire Hear lliver Valley.
Of the country at the bead of
th" Stikine ami the Dease Lake
section I have no knowledge except reported by men who have
operated in there, ami who are
very optimistic. This section I
bop., to include in my work for
the coining year.

RETURN GAME
AT ALICE ARM
Stewart Team Will Go to Alice
this Month for Last Game of
Season-Probably Use Mahood
Launch.
A second game between the Alice
Arm and Stewart baseball teams is
being arranged. Tne game here on
July 4 showed the teams were evenly
matched. The local balltossers were
as great a surprise to themselves as
to anybody for it was their first gam*
U a team. The score of 2 to 0 by
which Alice Arm won gave a real test
to the local material for the A. A. boys
ire a seasoned team.
Three of Stewart's best  men had  to
leave a few days before the game and
Alice Arm alio had to  leave a  couple!
uf her regulars home.    So the  coming \
gan.e   at Alice   Arm   ought   to   be  a
better one even than the other.
The pitching of young Smitheringale
for Stewart  was  a  revelation   to  the
heavy  sluggers  who faced  him.    Falconer for the visitors also had  a lot on
the ball.   The line-up was as follows:

WHARF CONDITION
GETS* DANGEROUS
Ottawa is Urged to Make Immediate Repairs���Holding up
Development of Entire District.
START WORK 8N LAST CHANCE.
The Fitzgerald brothers are taking
outfit up Salmon River to commence
work on the Last Chance group. The
property joins the Big Missouri on the
east and comprises six claims.
Long Approach Covered with
Rotted Planking and Traffic is
endangered���Association^ jvill
Take up  Subject.
For some unknown reason repairs to
the Stewart wharf and the long approach are being held up. It is understood that the plans for the new wharf
went to Ottawa a long while ago but
have received no attention. Notwithstanding the Public Works Department has posted a warning on the
wharf and disclaimed responsibility in
case of accident, no move to make the
wharf safe has been made.
Meanwhile, traffic is making heavier
dsmande. New mining companies are
starting up almost every week now.
Tons of supplies are coming in. The
boat due Sunday morning will have an
unusually heavy cargo by reason of
the long tie-up by the strike.
If accident should happen the responsibility will rest with the government in spite of its disclaimer, which
really amounts to an acknowledgement
of conditions.
Team owners at present are getting
along by repairing the planking where
;t breaks through and thus are doing
the work the government ought to
do. The condition of the wharf and
approach as a matter of fact is causing
comment by strangers and caustic
criticism by the citizens.
The condition of the wharf will be
one of the principal topics of discussion at the meeting of the Portland
Canal Prospectors' Association on Sunday afternoon.
A dance was held at the Mahood
home last Friday night and everybody
had a good time. The affair was in
honor of the Alice Arm baseball team.
But the team left on the tide and
missed the reception arranged by Mr.
and Mrs. Mahood.
