SNOW BLOCKS RAILWAY AND
DOG TEAMS HAUL DOLLY ORE
So Rich is the Ore of the Dolly Varden Mine in Alice Arm
Section that it is Profitable to Haul it to
Tidewater by Dog Teams.
STEWART. B. C, DECEMBER 20th, 1919

Bible while ihe price of silver remain*
in the high mark it is established i.i
today by the demand ot the whole
world for greater production of the
white metal, ihe Taylor Engineering

linlly Varden mine from tin- owners
by an act m' the legislature, are now
hauling the ore oul by dog tenuis tha
snow having blocked I'm- ihe winter
the .small narrow gauge railway which
the company constructed along the
intricate windings of ihe old government trail.
Can   Stand   Expense.
The ore of the Dolly is so rich that
.it can stand up under the expensive
transportation. It is reported that
iniliiiiK Operations are being pressed
vigorously in the recent rich strike ot
ore simply plastered with native sil
ver, a large amount of this high grade
me having  been  developed.
Ii is understood that A. .1. Taylor,
head of the company now holding control of the mine by reason of the
legislative act, is bending every effort
to iT-imburse his backers and every
ton of ore possible to take out this
winter will g�� to the smelter.

Possession from Legislature.
The Uolly Varden mine was obtained by the Taylor Engineering Co.
through the machinery of the legislature and not of the courts, When
the company*could not pay the workmen, and alleged thai Hie owners of
the Dolly Varden had not done by the
construction company as agreed, the
protection of ihe wanes of the workmen   was   sought   through   Ihe   mfciPg
committee of the legislature, chairman of which was David Whiteside,
U.L.A., for New Westminster. It is
doubtful if the committee, or the let
