A report was received on WeJnes-

Salmon River, had been encountered

the upper and the upper is 175 feet
from the surface, giving a depth of
some 425 feet on the rich ore shoot.
R. W. Wood, pr sident of the Premier Mines, Ltd., arrived in Stewart

A large gang is employed on the
road getting it in shape for heavy ore
traffic. Last winter two shipments
were made but the cost of transportation was heavy on account of the poor

The Provincial Public Works  depart-
ment has done  a  lot of good wo k in
these parts but there is a lot more  of
the same sort that ought to be done as
saon   as   possible.      It   would   greatly
assist  private   enterpris;   in   bringing
into use   the   minerals   so   lavishly be-
stowed here.    Withal  many good roads
a id trails  radiate from   Stewart  more
aro required if  the full advantage is to
���be   won.       We   cannot    impress   too
strongly  upon   the jrovernment the advisability of  this.     In   deciding   upon
and starting  work  upon the  ore highway from Stewart to Salmon River the
Works Department acted with wisdom.
At the Alaska boundary line  this road
will connect with a  road  the  Premier
company is   building    through   Alaska
territory to  their great mine.    Private
enterprise   is  building  this  road.    At
present the Premier people  are  shouldering the whole cost of  that  portion
of the road which runs through Alaska.
'I he Alaska administration ought  to do
its share  in    this  p-rticular  for   the
Premier company in getting toit3 property is   by the   way making  accessible

I SOME NICE ORE FROM MAYFLOWER.
Harry P. Gibson laa,t week brought
down some fine looking ore from the
Mayflower group, situated on the easL<!
side of Bear River between Bitter and
Glacier creeks. A crosscut tunnel has
been driven for a short distance and a
drift six feet on what appears to be
the wall of the vein exposed on the
surface.
The vein is about four feet wide of
quartz ane argillite mineralized with
pyrite, a little chalcopyrite, spalerite
and a trace of galena, enclosed in the
argillite country rock. The tunnel will
be extended to get depth under the
surface showing.

PUN REOPENING
OLD FIRE HALL
Town and Wharf had Narrow
Escape Recently and Made
Lack of Fire Protection Very
Apparent.
CASSIAR NEWS BRINGS 'EM.
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Heath of Cordova,
Alaska, spent the early part of the
week in Stewart and intend to return
and go into business.
"We were packed and ready to go
south when I picked up one of your
papers which decided us to visit Stewart," said Mr. Heath.
Proposed that Dance be Given
to Raise Funds to Place Fire-
hall in Condition for any Emergency. :
Now that the hospital has been reopened the next public institution due
for attention is the fireball. Very little
expense attaches to this. The building
is as good as ever and it is probable
the apparatus is in good order. A
quantity of chemical will have to be
purchased and some more expenses
entered into, but the total cost will be
a comparatively small item.
A solitary fire would do more damage than the cost of opening the fire-
hall would amount to. Recently there
were two small fires but fortunately at
a time when they were immediately
discovered and put out. Had they
sprung up at night much damage
would have been the result. The
small blaze in the main business block
had it occurred at night might have
destroyed all the Lui'dings on that side
of the street
A dance has been suggested as a
means of raising money to reopen the
firehall. The dance would ba under
direction of the fire wardens.
ENTERTAINS CHILDREN.
Mrs. Al Harris last Friday was hostess at a party for the school children
who formerly were her pupils. The
