It is reported that Boyle Bros, have
been given a contract to diamond drill
12,000 feet on the Big Missouri. Considerable work of this nature was done
last summer on the E pluribus claim,
which is en the high grade side of the
Big Missouri group. While results
were not made public it was said officially they were most satisfactory
in determining values at depth.

It was this big showing which attracted attention some years ago and was
the cause of Sir Donald Mann and associates bonding the property in 1910.
But as much of the ore is complex
and treatment science was not so advanced then, there were obstacles to
be faced. Many experiments have
been made with Big Missouri ore since
that time, showing a greatly increased

STEWART, B.C., April 23, 1920
With the announcementby the G.T.P.
that the big steamer, Prince George,
has been placed on the run to Stewart,
comes great activity in the building
line. If the crowds of newcomers are
to be properly taken care of a lot more
sleeping accommodation will be necessary. Work now nearing completion
will add accommodations for more than
a hundred. This work was further delayed by the accident to the Prince
John which nearly ruined big consignments of beds, bedding, etc. The appearance of these goods after their
briny bath was enough to discourage
anyone faint hearted. But not so the
people of Stewart. Parts of the town
now resemble big laundry .yards for
the salt chuck is evaporating from
bedding which seems to hang everywhere and the hot sun is making soaked
mattresses fairly steam. The furniture is being repaired as well as possible. General regret is expressed I
that the old Empress hotel has not
been reopened. This place has some
eighty rooms and is in better condition I
than it will be if it goes un sed through
another winter. Several deals for its
purchase have fallen through and the
price continues to go up. Several
schemes for large '*bunkhouses" are
receiving consideration.

to sink other shafts during the past 20
