G. D. B. TURNER AND INDIAN MINE
IN SHORT,, the placing of the Indian
in lhe class of a mine, as has been done,
is an example of what scientific study,
coupled with perseverance and courage on
the part of the management and backers,
will do in the mining game in this district;
for bringing the Indian to its present
prominence as a soon-producer has been a
herculean task. Not only have the many
local natural difficulties had to be overcome, but so also have the mischievous
criticisms and mockings, apparently carefully placed by evidently maliciously in.
clined minds for purposes peculiarly remote.
IT IS SUCH men as Mr. Turner and
the people associated with him who develop new mining fields, and who therefore, as in the case of the Indian, deserve
the congratulations of the entire district,
as their success means much to the community as well as the industry.

IN THE news columns of this issue
appears the story of the developments at
the Indian mine to date���a story of accomplishment of which the management
may well be proud.
COMING into the district approximately two years ago, Mr. G. D. B. Turner
spent some time first of all studying its
geology, which resulted in his taking over
the Indian property, situated a short distance westerly from the Premier mine, on
the British Columbia side cf the Salmon
River Basin.
APPLYING the lessons taught by the
Premier and other openings throughout
the section, coupled with a cautious and
economical management, and with the
able assistance of Mr. R.L.Clothierasman-
GROWTH OF STEWART
NOW that winter is again approaching, it is interesting to look about and note
the progress made in the actual town itself since the first of the year, signifying
a growth that is really remarkable, and establishing definitely the nucleus of what in a few short
years will be a thriving and populous mining centre and, it is reasonable to predict, the terminus
of a transcontinental railway.
IN GLANCING over the field it is found
that, with an increase of approximately fifty per
cent in the population, the following businesses
have coma into evidence: A bakery, meat mar
ket, three restaurants, a new general store, building supply and furniture store, another rooming
house, dairy, power plant supplying light ano
water but temporarily out of commission owing
to a breakdown, another barber shop, a doctor,
two customs brokers, picture show,   high school.

years to come promises to be still
more rapid. The faith of her

dreams of her future are commencing to unfold-���Stewart the

present end of the wagon road.
The mine is connected w'th the
Stewart dock by a good wagon
road up the Salmon river valley,
and thence by three miles of
trail to the mine. The Provincial governmeni have commenced the construction of a high-
1 ivel bridge across Cascade creek
with a view of extending the
road to the mine. Transportation from the contemplated  mill
to the Stewart dock presents no
particular problem, since no difficulties will be encountered in
the construction of an aerial
tram.
Thirty men are now employed
at the mine, some of whom are
preparing stations for the diamond drills.
