the ore highway to the Stewart duck is concerned. The
up er approach was finished early in the week, unci the pile
driver is almost down to the middla bridge, where the road
will have a shelf of r>:k oithe imar side to support the
planking. This shelf is now baing blasted out, and inconsequence the old foot bridge is shot away, necessitating a detour around the cliffs for f >ot pinang? ��ra. This is alright in
the daytime for those with steady nerv s and sure footed, but
is dangerous at night.

With all the outside work   completed
. S ipplies enough at the mine to last !
-
fifteen men for seven months, the crew
at the Forty Nine have settled down to
a winter  of  progressive  development.
Superintendent  Harry   Howson   came
down from the  mine   Wednesday   evening, and says that affairs there are in
a very satisfactory c ndition.   Both the
Occidental and the Forty  Nine^ tunnels
are being driven ahead, the   former  in
hipping ore, and the latier in   a  good
concentrating graie.   Tne Forty Nine
[ tunnel w.a driven as a crosscut to   tap
j the vein, and when the  ore   body   was
'reached, was continued as a  drift.    It
is heading toward the high   ga e   ore
| body which shows on the outcrop.
"Had we the   facilities   for  getting
I the ore out,"   said   Harry,  'we   could
��� be making daily shipments right now."
The superintendent believes in   keening a good crew together by   providing
' them not only with necessities but with
. all possible comforts.    With  this  idea
jn mind the camp has been built   on   a
thoroughly   modern   plan, with  bams,
hot and cold water, oil heaters, the best
of grub and an A 1 cook.    The medical
and first aid supplies were specially selected by George i raser,   and   nothing
in this line was   overlooked,   not   even
the hot water bottle.
A complete assay office is also established at the mine, with Percy Jeiins in
charge. Tiie convenience and necessity
of this need not be amplified.
Considering the fact that the first
man went on the ground as late as July
1. and that there were absolutely no
improvements there at that time, the
Forty Nine crew have mam- a wonderful record of accomj lishment.
that they are on the underground *\
a winter of gratifying development is
antii ipated.

FOR
MIER MINE
Next week the motorsled ore truck
ordered for a try-out by the Premier
Cold Mining Company should arrive
httfe on the Prince John, Supeiinten-
dent W. G. Harris having received
word that it has been shipped from
Seattle. Mr. Harris does not anticipate that a proper test can be given the
new hauling device until around the
middle of December, as the heavy snow
does not come as a rule before that
time. If the tractor proves to be the
success which its makers claim for it,
others will be ordered in sufflci nt number to handle the tonnage whieh the
company expects to ship this winter.
Barring the depth of snow there are
no difficulties on the road and until the
tractor is in operation the road will be
kept open by teams. One snowslide
crosses the road at Eleven-Mile" but no
trouble is anticipated from  it.
It is the intention to install compressor machinery at the mine about the
middle of December and put in power
drills. When this is done the daily ore
tonnage will be materially increased.
Meanwhile everything at the mine
has been put in ship-shape for the winter for carrying out the development
program laid out some time ago. An
eie. trie light plant has been insta led
and the bunk house, cook house, eom-
ir : nil iii g and ore sorting shed
are now being wired for lights, and
iines will be carried to the mine entran-

i
Confirmation of the reported sale of
a big interest in the Premier mine ia
' contained in an interview with R. K.
Neill, general manager of the Premier
Gold Mining Co., in the Vancouver
Province. The new blood in the company represents Guggenheim and Silverman interests. Reorganization has
been accomplished and n|ans have been
made for a progressive program of development. R.W.Wood, of Fernie remains as i resident of the company and
Mr. Neill as general manager. Other
officers now are: Vice president and
managing director, II. A.Guess, northwest manager of the American Refining and Smelting Co.;-se ond vice-pres-
dent, Minor C. Keith, a fruit importer
of New York, who has not been in the
mining business before; secretary,
W.E.Norria of the Guggenheims; treasurer, L.A.Chapin. Directors, R. W.
Wood and VV.R. Wilson of Fernie; R. K.
Neill of Spokane; H.E.Price of the
Silverman group; M. C. Keith, W. C.
Potter and H. A.Guess of New York.
Whi'e Mr, Neill made no announcement as to the price, the amount of
money involved is unquestionably so
large a sum as to make the deal the
largest transaction of the nature which
ever took piace in British Columbia.
It is understood that a 40 per cent interest changed hands.
With the consummation of this  deal
the certain amount of hesitancy  which
marred progress in the   Portland Ca al
will bi-appear, for  the   company   now
has all the money it requires to  undertake the opening of its great mine on a
large scale.    It is tho ighf  that the development program, which ��� "htemplat-
ed the shipment of ore this winter will
be carried forward. It ia expected that
enlarged plans   for   devi lopment   contemplate a railway to   the   mine   and

How the money was spent, whether

Stewart should do its share even

STEWART, B. C, Nov.  7, 1919
It is not too late to make up for lost
time in the Victory bond campaign if
everybody will get in and hustle from
tin's out. Posters and literature have
arrived from the headquarters and all
the bonds one wants to buy may be
obtained through the Bank of Montreal
branch in Stewart.
While it is to be regretted this section is getting a late start, it is not believed this will affect the final result,
provided, of course, sufficient energy
is developed,
The thing to do now is to get organ
ized and see what  Stewart can  do in :
tha way of buying bonds which are the
best investment in  Canada today, with
the whole country back of the guaran-
tee.   The  interest alone is  a  big in-
ducement, but   there is  the   stronger!
one, that the country needs the money
No politics is entering into this campaign. Mackenzie King, leader of the
Liberal party, has given the campaign
his support and leaders in all walks of
life are getting behind the Government
in this, no matter what their politics
or prejudices.
The Government has critics and op-!
ponents, but for the  loan   the  hatchet
is buried and everybody is. disposed   to
get out  and  hustle for  the   country's|
sake. *
The old borrowing places are no more '
since  the  war,   figuratively, and each
country must seek its money in its own
pockets.     Canada's  pockets  are   the
pockets and old socks of her people.
And    that   the   people   have   vast
wealth  stored away was  indicated   by
the first  Victory Loan drive.   A   sur- j
prising amount of money was pr duced :
from all quarters.
The second did better.
Then other loans were floated with
great success. Now we have the sixth
Victory Loan.    And ths* last no doubt.
This loan is to meet war obligations
just as  mu.'h   as though  the  country
There is no definite information as
to whether the big deal at the Premier
mine has been consummated or not.
Lacking details there is a measure of
uncertainty with business enterprises.
The development program of the Premier Mining Co. is one that means
great activity this winter if followed.
Whether new 1 oo 1 would proceed with
this grogram, or institute a new one
and r.ot ship ore this winter but lay
plans for a railroad and for less expensive shipping methods eventually, is a
question it is hoped there will be an I
answer to with the definite news as to '
whether the reported sale was made
or not.
Another bigdance will  will be given
in Stewart tonignt.
Many additional workmen have been
taken on at the mines of the Consolidated.

This is the time
WHEN the man who looks
ahead will have his teeth looked
after. Often a man's work is
abrupted just at the worst time
for him by an aching tooth or
an ulcer. Have you ever seen a"
a man come back from the hills,
or his work, with his face two
sizes and in pain and misery?
More than likely he neglected
his teeth.   Don't neglect yours.
STEWART  LOCAL   NOTES
In view of the probable coal shortage
in the south this winter it would be
