MAN IN WATER
A remarkable escape from death
was experienced last Saturday morning   by   Ali-x Wilson   who   is employed with the road   gang on   the
International   Ore   Highway.    For
some unaccountable reason he did
not  move   when   the    signal   was
given anil   the powder   moved him.
He was thrown i 11"  the  grade   and
down   about  thirty feet   into    the
water.    He swam  ashore and   was
little the worse for the  experience
and his only injury was a lacerated
scalp.    Dr.  Page   put   a   patch   on
and Wilson is back on the job.

STEWART, B, C, AUG. 1,   1919
Stewart is having a steady revival of
business activity and scarcely a  building is available for residential purposes,
anywhere   near the business   centre.
On the main street there are but  three
vacant stores available.   Almost every
cabin ia taken.     It is difficult  to estimate the size ol the population in the
district because so many men   are in
the   hills.     It is   generally  predicted
that we will see  a good  winter  camp
here as there are  already evidences of
preparedness what with  wood-siting
repairing of the old cabins  which while
pleasant to  live  in  will  require  some
tightening up to  make  them  comfortable for cold weather.    But winter is
a long ways off yet.   Last winter there
were but seventy souls  in   the  camp.
This winter there will  be several  hundred.

J. COLLIER,   Proprietor
Word that the new dock is  going  to
be built is very welccme.   As a matter J
of fact the Federal Works Department
Should have had the job completed  by
this time.    The new dock will be a con-
Biderable    distance  farther from  the
town than the present one.    It  will be
detached from the old approach  which
by  reason of   its  location  becomes   a
part of the wagon  road  to  the Alaska
boundary.    A�� such it would appear to
be the duty of  the  Provincial  Government to do the repairing.   True,   some
rotted  planking  was  replaced, but  at
that rate the repairs would  be endless.
IT IS UP tht; Salmon River that the greatest mining activity in this district. The accompanying map, while not up to cate, shows the relative
position of the more prominent properties. In this connection it is pointed
out that the "Bush" property shown on the map is the famous Premier,
which the new Bush adjoins on the northeast. The Big Missouri is showing
signs of being greater even than the Premier if values continue at depth
and the diamond drill will determine whether or not.

Dividends from Northwest mines for
the second quarter of 1919 reached a
total of $1,265,166, compared with 1,-
583,956 for the first quarter. British
Columbia's record was hard hit by reduction of Granby dividend to $1.25 per
share for the second quarter, compared
with $2.50 for the first quarter and the
further announcement that dividend
for the third quarter has been entirely
passed. Coii.toiiuated has maintained

associated with the Coeur d'Alenes in
early days, will learn with sincere regret of the death of Donald R. Cameron, familiarly known to younger men
as "Uncle Dan," who died in Spokane

of the throat which had undermined a
rugged constitution in spite of efforts
of the best physicians in   the  country,
