is Glowing.
Work is to begin immediately on
a new wharf at Hyder. It will be
built out from the end of Premier
avenue. The approach is to be 2100
feet long. F. J. Cotter, an engineer, is in Hyder now getting
ready for work, to commence. The
intention is to build the wharf far
enough out to get deep water for
all boats. Announcement of the
the wharf plans has caused quite a
boom in lot sales on the Lindeborg
add,"i< i to Hyder.
Wharf Approach Which Needs Repairing.
RAPID progress is noted along the
Salmon River wagon road. Gangs
are working both ways from the Five
Mile and Nine Mile camps. The Five
M lc crew will complete its section and
move up to Eleven Mile in ten days,
according to present orders. The road
is being built by the Premier Mining
Ca>. under personal supervision ol R.K.
Neill, vice president, who says he
wants the road to Eleven Xjilt completed in two weeks and the crews between Nine and Eleven, which is mostly rock work, are shooting and grading
at top speed.
Nine Mile house is the transfer point
at present for freight bound for the
Premier, Bush, International and Spi-
derjand farther along for the Big Missouri, Mineral Hill, Payroll, Forty Nine
and others. At this point a great
amount of freight hag been wagoned-in
to be packed up the hill.
A new roadhouse has been established at Nine Mile by P. S. Stump.
Heretofore there had been no accommodation between Five and Eleven
Mile.
Eleven   Mile  ia  showing  signs   of a
boom as  a future   townBite  and   large
deve onment ia expected there   in   the
Spring,     Ten   men     are     permanent
boa'iters at the roadhouse,   t-ome packing and   some   building  cabins   under
| contract.
Pr' mier Mine.
While operations  are  continuing  at
I the mine, the force is   not   large as the
main etfoits at present   are  concentrated on the wagon road so as   to have in
condition as soon   as possible to haul in
lompresscr machinery ��nu   lo .-.hip ore.
It is said that  some  |200.(MiO worth of
ore, put on the clump in the   course  of
development   work,    is     ready   to   be
shipped over the snow this winter.

International Group.
The International group  is owned by
Pat  Daly  and  associa'es.   There  are
eight claims situated abo t  two  miles
northeast of  11 Mile   and  just  at  the
I British Columbia side  of  the boundary
, line.    A   good   trail   has  been  built to
j the property.   The showing consists of
'a band or vein of silicified  greenstone,
between 8 and   10 feet wide,   lying in a
j dark green  schist.    The  vein  dips  63
(leg. to the  west  and   has  a strike of
N 20 deg. E.   Throughout the vein are
I small veins of pure  quartz   running  in
all directions, the   whole filling  miner-
ized with   iron   pyrites.    As a  general
I rule In these veins  the best values are
| carried in the  purer  quartz  portions.
j The   government    engineer    says  the
showing is strong and  well defined and
there is no  reason   why it  should  not
persist in length and depth.    The property is well located and  suppli- d  with
timber snd water.
Mineral Hill.
On the   Mineral   Hill   group of   four
claims development is proceeding under
the sui erintendence of AI Harris.    The
group was   bonded   by   R.   W.   Martin
' and Dr. Carter to   P. Welch and   asso-
! ciataa.    A large amount  of  work   has
' been done and good   camps established.
Some high grade oie has been   encountered in the tunnel which is being driven to get depth under the -urface show-
1 ings where   high   grade  ore   has   been
exposed  by   numerous  cuts.    Of  this
property    the    government    engineer
says:    "From all  indications  there  is
every reason to believe   this   property
will develop into an important producer
of high grade silver ore."
Forty-Nine.
This group has two claims, the���19 an"1
Occidental. They were located by
Lindeborg Hros. and are being operated by the Forty Nine Mining Co. A
good camp has been established and
present work is in a tunnel which has
been   driven    approximately   80   feet.

BLOW UP BEAR
AT FIVE-MILE
LJERE is a picture of the long approach to the Stewart wharf. The approach is an orphan. It needs repairing badly but neither Dominion
nor Provincial Gove nments seem to want to do the job nor even father the
lonely structure. This picture was taken in the Spring and the snow hides
the holes.   Until repairs are made the structure is a danger to traffic.
NEWS OFF THE WIRE
Bears at Five Mile camp on the
Salmon River road were frequent
visitors until last Monday. After
fishing the creek they would scavenge their dessert at the camp
garbage can. A half dozen paid
daily visits to the camp and the
smaller fell ws ate from the hands
of the cook. A 500-pound red bear
arrived a few days ago and proceeded to to take possession of.the
camp. He reared and snapped as
he went about with a side of bacon
in one hind and a fresh loaf of
bread in the other, and refused to
vacate the trail. Nine sticks of 60
percent, in the garbage can, with a
battery connection, caused his demise on Monday.

The site for the big reduction workg
to be erected by the Consolidated for
reducing the ores of Rossland camp
has not been definitely determined.
The city of Rossland is considering a
proposition from the company.
Last year the Horn Silver near  Ker-
emeos shipped 19 cars of ore.
For the first three months of this
year the province of Ontario produced
metals valued at $10,182,000.
James Cronin was in Smithers a
few days ago after a trip to the Bab-
ine Bonanza, which for the past several years he has been open ng up.
He has undertaken this year to drive a
1000-ft. tunnel which is now in more
than 200 feet. When this tunnel has
been finished the prospects are excellent that a big mine will have been
opened up. Machinery will then be Installed.
Last year in the Grand Forks mining
district 103 quartz claims were located. In the Nelson district 277
claims were Iocatt d.
Quite a large number of men are reported to be  prospecting for platinum
��� at Granite Creek.
Experiments are under way at the
Consolidated plant at Trail in the silver
refinery with the object in view of
treating the fumes from the Dore furnaces to recover the small particles of
silver which have heretofore been carried away with the smoke and fumev
If the tests now being- made demonstrate that the values new being lost
will warrant it, an electrical smoke-
treating plant will probably be installed at the refinery.
Write or see secretary of Portland
Canal Prospectors' Association for reliable information on mining prospects,
camp conditions, etc., Salmon River
and Bear River districts. Prospectors
are invited to exhibit their ore in show
room.    Dues $5 a year. tf
San Francisco men have a bond on
75 ciaims in Aspen Grove, owned by
John Bate and others. Diamond drilling will commence this season.
The  bed   of Boulder   Creek,    near
Fort Steele, is being dredged for gold.

An oil fuel smelter jb to be built at
San Diego, Cal., to smelt iron ore from
Mexico, Later the company proposes
to also smelt lead, copper and manganese ores.
When the power   line gets  to   Camp
McKinney it may be expected that considerable  mining   activity   will  start.

DEAL ��� ON MARMOT
RIVER LOOKED FOR
Montana Bond Expected to be
Taken up by Vancouver Capital ��� District Looks very
Promising.
Back of this Range Lies Famous Salmon River Valley
An announcement of importance to
the Marmot River section especially, is
looked forward to in the near future.
It is understood that the bond on the
Montana group, held by William V.
Somerville and associates of Vancouver
and Victoria, is to be taken up and development proceeded with. Mr. Somerville aas gone to Vancouver to consult with his principals.
The Montana group is owned by H.
C. Magee of Vancouver and George
Bruggie of Alice Arm. At present
Mr. Magee and two men are doing preliminary wc:k under the instruction of
the bonders. A good-sized force may
soon be working.
Mr. Magee on Tuesday brought in
some exceptionally fine looking ore
from the Montana. It shows native
silver in abundance. Fifty pounds of
the average ore will be shipped south
on the next boat for display purposes
and will probably be seen at the Vancouver Exhibition in September.
The late discovery on the Horseshoe
claim has been prospected further
with the result that the ore looks better with every shot put into it. On
another vein on the Montana assays as
high as $1900 to the ton have been obtained. The average value of the ore
on which work has been done runs to a
figure which would seem to asaure
profitable mining. The principal work
on this group consists of an 80-foot
tunnel and crosscut on the lead.
Considerable activity in Marmot River section has been noticed the past
few weeks and a number of promising
locations have been made. Among recent locations were Beveral claims by
A. Gilfillan of Vancouver and associates

is such as to warrant thorough explor-
I ation. The ore bodies where exposed
! have good showings. Mr. Gilfillan left
! for Vancouver last week.
J. A. Stamford, an  engineer of Victoria, arrived here on  the Sunday boat
: on his way to Marmot River to exam-1
; ine the Gilfillan property, and  expects
j to be on the ground the latter  part of
this week.
Norman McLennan, an oldtimer of
Stewart has returned, arriving from
Alice Arm a few days ago.
