JTEREST IN STEWART DISTRICT
NOW CENTRED ON HIGH GRADE ORES
)istrict Cannot Fail to Be
One of First Importance
Says E. E. Campbell.
inal Results to Prospector
and Mine Operator Should
Be Manifold.
EQARDBD   among   mlnlnK   mon
as a field  of first  Importance,
tlie   Stewart   district   of   North-
|rn   British   Columbia, yesterday  was
clared    by 10. B.    Campbell,   mine
Superintendent at Anyox, to lie a field
which   results   to   the   prospector,
Biine   operator   and   the   province   in
eneral should be manifold.   In Ids ad-
���resg    1 efore    Mining    Institute,    Mr.
pampbell said in part:
For the past year no part of Brit-
tsh Columbia has demanded more In-
crest, from a prospective mineral pro-
ucing standpoint than that tributary
lo Stewart.    About 10 years ago this
pliu o was the centre of a noted mining boom, and although at that  time
everal   properties   of   decided   merit
re found the district was more or
ess    discredited  by  the  foolish    ex-
flottatlon of a few properties of ques-
iuiiable value.
The   interest   now   being   taken   in
line development In the Stewart dis-
ict is liased on  many  valuable discoveries of high-grade ore, and these
fover such a wide area that the dis-
rict as a whole cannot fail to be one
Df first Importance.
Only  that   portion   of   the   Stewart
nineral area situated on the Salmon
tiver will be discussed in this paper,
it is  in   this   part  that   many of
' recent finds of rich ore hive been
lade.
Well-Known Contention.
It has always been the opinion of
fpologistt and engineers that the
successful tenure of the mining industry in Northern British Columbia
I must depend upon the development
of primary ores of comparatively low
metal tenure.
Due to heavy glaciation most of
the oxidized portions of the outcropping ore bodies have been removed;
the same can be said of the surfaee-
enriclied zones, as few ore bodies on
the north coast, on development, show
definite evidences of surface enrichment.
The refent discovery of extensive
lore tioilies carrying minerals that are
unquestionably of secondary origin.
Bitabliahu a reversal of the condl-
turns thought to exist, as well as a
[change in the opinion of mining en-
| gineers regarding the types of ore

adjacent to. many scattered areas of
sedimentary and numerous types of
igeous rocks, and it is these areas
flanking the granite mass that afford the greatest promise of reward
to systematic prospecting. The
Stewart mineral showings occur in
one of these areas adjacent to the
granite.
Of Granite Formation.
For the first five miles up the
Salmon Itiver from where it empties
into the Portland Canal the country
rock consists of granite. In contact
with this is highly altered schist of
apparently sedimentary origin. Beyond this is a vast area underlain by
greenstone and tuffs, and it is in
these rocks that the recent ore discoveries have been made. The greenstone, which is essentially a quartz
porphyry, has been sheared and silici-
fied in places, and it is in such zones
that the ore occurs.
The greenstone in places is overlain
by a volcanic brecchia, varying in
texture from fine to coarse grained.
This rock is generally grayish to
green in color, and shows tlie same
alterations as those found iu Ihe
quartz porphyry. Where is it finegrained and changed to the color of
tho greenstone it is almost impossible
to classify accurately in the held.
The greenstone, or altered quartz
porphyrj containing the ore are part
of a series of rocks, called by Mr
McConnell the Bear River formation.
These greenstones vary widely in appearance, ranging from light green
and almost noraml quartz porphyry li
a dark green and highly altered
product.

SERVICE PROTESTED
��� BY MAIL AND BOAT
SPOKANE, Wash., Dec. 4���Suit for
a half interest in the Premier mine,
formerly the Bush, near Stewart,
B.C., was filed in federal court here
today by Maurice I). W. Bacon of
Los Angeles, against It. K. Neill of
Spokane. Bacon alleges that a partnership existed between him and
Neill and that Neill misrepresented
the value of the Bush mine, as it was
called when their alleged partnership
was in existence, and thus fraudulently obtained possession of the
property.
���Bacon charges that he loaned Neill
a "grubstake" in June, 1916, whereby
it was agreed that the two should
share equally in any mining property
taken over. It is alleged that Neill
deceived Bacon as to the value of
the Bush mine, as itwas reported on
by Neill to Bacon, and obtained it
for himself.
Bacon formerly was in the mining
business in Arizona and in the Northwest. He at one time was an associate of the late F. Augustus Heinz,
of Butte, Mont. It recently was re
ported that 51 per cent, of the Premier mine, a gold-silver property, was
sold to the American Smelting and
Kefining company by Neill and his
associates, W. R. Wilson and Trites
and  Wood, of Fernie, B.C.
Alleging that a fortnightly boat service on the part of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, is against the best interests
of the district, Charles F. Caldwell
has wired the Stewart Citizens' Association that the matter is being investigated by Vancouver interests. The
association met on Monday night and
wired a protest to Ottawa both as re-
sards the boat service and the poor
mailservice.
It has been pointed out that, even
though the freight and passenger business offering here during the winter
is less than during tho summer, the
government, which controls the G. T.
1'., could well afford to provide a weekly service because of the encouragement it would give to developing of
the mines of the district, thus producing  revenue  for the  government.

COL. LAMB LIKES
BIG MISSOURI MINE
Highly pleased with the result of
his examination of the work at the
Big Missouri, Col. T. A. Lamb, friend
of Sir Donald Mann, head of the syndicate owning the mine, has returned
to Stewart. He was accompanied to
the mine by William Noble, superintendent, who met him upon his arrival
from the south.
Col. I>amb during the war served
with the British army in Turkey He
has been interested in mining fur a
considerable time but says he never
saw a section which pleased him so
much as Salmon river. In the east
much attention is being directed to
Stewart, he says, and this is particularly true of Winnipeg.

DAN LINDEBORG
IN LIMELIGHT
Dan and Andy Lindeborg, pioneers
of Saimon River and locators of the
big Missouri and other properties, are
now in Vancouver, and Dan is kept
busy answering inquiries. Being so
well known in the north country, it
was not long till those who were interested in the Portland Canal found
he was in Vancouver, ajid beseiged
him with inquiries as to the progress
of operations. He found much interest displayed in the new town of
Hyder, which is on his old homestead,
and everything indicates that Hyder
will be the next big stampede in
Alaska.
With the greatest reluctance, and
only after a hard struggle, those who
were trying to get supplies in to open
up the work on the Unicorn group.
beyond the Big Missouri, have given
up the task. E. H. Terwilliger, representative of J. R. McDonald and associates who have the bond on the Unicorn, is leaving for the south again,
very disappointed that the heavy snow
was too much for all the endeavors
made to get supplies in to start work
at this season. Two weeks ago Mr.
McDonald wired from New York urging that work be commenced at the
Unicorn, the intention being to put a
diamond drill on the ground at once.
Supplies were purchased and men
sent ahead to break trail for the pack
train. Not only had they the deep
snow to contend with, but some dirty
weather as wellThe supplies were left
at. the camp of the Indian Mines, Ltd.

INTEREST GREAT
IN SALMON RIVER
PREMIER ORE
COMING DOWN
Interest in the property of the B. C.
Silver Mines, Ltd., is great In Vancouver. Shares in the newly organized company are much in demand.
O. B. Bush and Grant Mahood are the
principal owners, having obtained the
ground from Charles Lake and Dave
O'Leary. It la understood that development work will commence early
in the spring, and the three high
grade silver veins found on the property will be stripped and preparations
made for mining. The group is situated between the Bush Limited and
the Premier. O. B. Bush is now in
Vancouver where lie is kept busy answering inquiries as to the Salmon
River district.
A record in ore transportation by-
teams is being made from the Premier
mine to the beach at Hyder. Not
only are the teams belonging to the
Premier Mining Co. employed, but the
teams belonging to the jBush Limited,
Forty Nine and others are all on the
job. It has been estimated that some
3000 tons will be shipped this winter.
The roadbed is in excellent condition,
by reason of the ground having frozen
before the first snowfall. Tlie weather has turned clear and ecld. Difficulty in getting the engine of the
snow tractor to work is still being
experienced.
DEAL PENDING ON
MOTHERLODE GROUP
MASQUERADE WILL
BRING OUT CROWD
Everybody in Stewart and Hyder is
making preparrtions for the masquerade ball to be given on New Year's
eve at the Stewart Town Hall under
the auspices of tlie Citizens' Association. The affair will unquestionably
be the biggest dance In point of attendance and success that the camp has
ever seen. It goes without saying
that some of the costumes will he the
last work in ingenuity.
EPORTS from every part of the
continent apparently indicate
that the Portland Canal is the
big mining attraction for next year.
In Vancouver, Seattle, Portland and
other coast cities, as well as the
smaller communities in the northern
part of British Columbia and Alaska,
one hears the same stories about the
prospects for a big mining camp at
Stewart. In Vancouver the hotels are
full of mining men who are ready to
come to the Portland Canal as soon
as the snow is off the hills. Many,
however, will not wait till the snow
is gone. Judges of the situation maintain that the rush northward will
commence in February and continue
all through the season.
For the information of those who
have not been in this district before,
it may be mentioned that it will be
early summer before they can see
much of the ground, for the snow
comes early and stays late. However,
as was the case in the early days of
the camp, scores were on the ground
weeks before the snow had gone, and
as soon as they could they were out
into the hills examining the various
showings and the work done. That is
about what is going to transpire this
time.
And the Portland Canal district
will not disappoint prospective investors this time, as it did in 1910 w'.ien
there was little work done. Since the
days of that boom development has
progressed until today the district has
more to show than the most optimistic friends of the district would care
to say. During this winter several
mining properties are operating and
reports are that the work is proving
the existence of gome big mines.
In addition to the work which is
going on, the Premier mine will ship
steadily later in the season, and the
returns from some 3000 tons of ore.
which it is expected will be sent down
the hill, will be more than surprising.
Last winter the two shipments made
from this property gave such large
returns as to attract unusual attention. Tlie returns this winter will no
doubt be much larger.

It is rather disappointing that the
snow tractor for the Premier mine is
not In working order. The fault, it is
believed, Is not with the machine, but
in the handling of it in transit, no provision against the cold weather having
been made.

Noel Humphries, who surveyed the
original townsite of Stewart, expects
to open an iffice here in the spring.
News from the south that interest
in the Portland Canal district, is so
great everywhere is encouraging to the
pioneers of the district whose faith
has caused the development which has
taken place since the boom days of
1910.
��� ���    *
A report from Spokane Is to the effect that Mr. R. K. Neill is about to
face an action for a division of his
interest in the Premier mine. Whatever the facts may be, those who know
Mr. Neill will be certain that the in-
uendo in the press news is uncalled
for. And, furthermore, Mr. Bacon will
have the scrap of his life If he puts
anything over.
