STEWART, B. C, June 20, 1919
We are featuring Groundhog Mountain and the coal there because of a reawakened interest in that district to
which Stewart is  the  natural  outlet.
Stewart also is the natural, most direct and economical outlet for the
Peace River oilfields, when oil is found.
Mr. Charles F. Law, of Vancouver,
who represents the interests of the late
Lord Rhondda, recently made a statement to the Board of Trade of Prince
Rupert and said his associates were
formulating plans for development of
the Groundhog and would probably ask
the government to give them a certain
area of coal land to aid in building a
railway.
Mr. Law intimates that a railway
might be build from Groundhog to
the vicinity of Prince Rupert and he
told about the wonders of the fields and
the great possibilities for building up
of Prince Rupert as a coal terminus.
Mr. Law no doubt sees in the linking
up of such a road as is in his mind, the
use of a piece of land at Kitimat. We
regret that Mr. Law did not go more
into the details of the Groundhog situation. As Mr. Law seems to have outlined it, he has in mind a distance of
some three hundred miles from the
coal fields to the vicinity of Prince Rupert and the water.
The distance from Stewart and water

to the Groundhog is ninety miles. At
Stewart there is already fifteen miles
of standard  guage, heavy rail railway.
Prir.cc Atiipci t ia a great utile metropolis and one of the great ports of
the future. But the Portland Canal
is the natural outlet to the sea for the
Groundhog coalfi Ids, the Peace River
oilfields and wheat, and the outlet for
the agricultural lands of the Naas.
What Mr. Law and his associates
have in mind, how and where they
spend their money is their own business
it is admitted, but may we be permitted
to offer the suggestion that the government give the project the "once over?"
And, also, that Mr. Law study the topography of the Groundhog's relation
to the Coastline?
Last week it looked as if it would be
impossible to secure a medical man for
this district for some time. This week
we have one doctor here and another
on the way and still some more who
would come for a guarantee. The latter may dismiss   the    thought.   Just
why a medical man should have a guar-
tee in a growing mining camp does not
appear plain. Nobody else is guaranteed more than an even chance. It
would be different if a medical man
had to be induced to leave a lucrative
practice and an established position, to
come to a place offering poor opportunities. Stewart offers her doctor
a splendid little hospital to work in,
his resilience and business opportunity.

MINING ACTIVITY
ON ALICE ARM
Engineers are Reaching the District by Erery Boat���General i
Development is   Noticed    in
all Directions.
New Staff to Operate the Dolly
Varden has Reached the Camp
���Holders of Taylor Cheques
Being Paid.
Alice Arm ia coming into ite own thie
year. The Dolly Varden has been taken
over by the Taylor people and the
money ia now in the bank to pay off
all cheques. The office force and en-
gineeri have arrived at Alice Arm.
On the Torie  group, acrosa from the
Dolly Vardin, rich ore   was  atruck laat!
week,   showing  quantities    of   native
silver.
The Tiger group also ia showing large
tonnage of high grade ore.
Rii-h ore was encountered on the
Independent last week. The ore is
now being sacked for shipment to the
smelter. This property is situated
1500 feet from tidewater.
United Metals company is getting
ready to make regular shipments of
high j'rade ore.
l.aRose property last summer shipped
to Trail a quantity of ore which gave
returns of $350 per ton, and the owners
are preparing for extensive develop-
meat this year.
Every boat brings  prominent engin-'
eers to the camp and it looks as though
he place    will   advance   this summer. I
Several deals have been made during
the past lew weeks.    This  is  a  silver
camp ��nd  so far  as  development  has
gone no  property has   been   a failure.
The district hasn't been   half  prospec
led.

NEW SECTION
APPEARS LIKE
SALMON RIVER
Beyond Known ' Mineralized
Zone up the Salmon River Lies
a Region Very Similar to all
Appearances.
Expected to be Explored During
Present Season���Local Trapper Has Crossed over Divide
Between the Salmon and Bear.
An unexplored region whjch will receive attention from a number of prospectors this season is the territory between the head of Salmon River Valley
j^nd Bear River Valley. Men who have
made the trip say the formation ap
pears similar to the mineralized zone
of Salmon River, and add that the
red stain ia more extensive.
The Salmon valley is mineralized
over its entire length* according to report, and a general prediction is that
some important discoveries of high
grade ore will be made in the unpros-
pected territory.
Charles Bibeau of Stewart, a trapper,
crossed the divide.between Salmon and
Bear River last year, and passed
through the territory which resembles
Salmon River formation. Bibeau was
not looking for mineral at the time,
but he is a prospector as well as trapper 'and was not unmindful of the appearance of the country through-which
he passed.
Mr. Bibeau crossed the divide, which
is a very hard trip, and would not be
necessary to prospectors who, when
they wished to return, could retrace
their steps.
The trip is along a glacier, thence
across a three-mile lake to a portage
of about the same distance to another
lake, seven miles long, then some more
glacier, as the trapper puts it.
From the first lake, to the head of
the second lake, Mr.   Bibeau says,   the
formation appears the same as the
Salmon River Valley section. There
| is not much wood on one side but
j plenty on the other. The hills are very
j steep in places. Mr. Bibeau judges
' there are about 12 miles of good
prospect country he passed through.
The section starts about five miles
beyond the  Big  Missouri.   The  route
! leads up  American  Cr?ek   (this is not
I American  Creek  on  this side of the
I range) which flows into a  lake which
) is known by various names and to some
I as  Bowser  Lake.    This creek  is  fol-
| lowed up to the forks where  it may be
forded, then the right fork is followed
to Bald Mountain, on the left of which
a pass is  found  leading to American
Creek glacier on this side of the range.
Across  the end  of   the  glacier  it is
rough traveling and  Mr. Bibeau put in
almost a whole day cutting footholds.
This is believed to be the district to
which Earl Hyde, M.E., and party, was
headed for a few years ago when their
boat was wrecked with several months'
supplies and the project was abandoned.
BALL TEAM PRACTICING.
The Stewart ball team is hard at
work getting into condition for the
I game with Anyox. A good ball park
I and diamond was prepared during the
! past week by all the ball players and
\ and others goinjr to work with shovels.
I The flat next the Martin house offered
' an excellent ballground and very little
work was required to put it in firstclass
' shape.
