HYDER WANTS
OWN WHARF
One of the vital necessities of Hyder
is a wharf.    At the present time every
arrival and every pound of freight except such as comes from  Ketchikan,
is loaded at the Stewart  wharf on the
British Columbia side of the  line, and
while there ia  yet do  trouble over customs regulations, and red tape for the
, time being is forgotten  still  the  town
I is subjected to great, inconvenience.
,    Some  time  ago  the  Hyder citizens
I se it a ins.m to the administration out-
i lining  the need-iof the camp  in  this
respect, and that steps   will   be   taken
to relieve the situation is  made certain
by the following letter from   Governor
Biggs, wh> recently visited the district
and is thorough'y conversant  with  the
requirements:
: Territory  of Alaska, office  of Governor, Juneau.
Mr. George H. Foy,
Hyder, Alaska.
My dear sir:- I am in receipt of a
petit on signed by yourself and other
re .idents of the town of Hyder, where-
��� in you advocate the earlie t possible
construction of a wharf in your town.
I have already taken this mater up
with the Forest Service and the Alaska
Road Commission. Major Waugh, the
president of the commission, alvises
me that it is quite probable that he
will let contracts for the furnishing of
the needed material this winter and
that in all probability a dock, through
some agency, will be constructed in
. the s;>iing.
I am thoroughly in  accord  with the
I idea of having a dock  constructed  as
soon as possible so  that the   town   will
benefit ther from.   Very truly yours.

Premier Mine
Reported Sold
A RUMOR persists that control of the great Premier mine
on Salmon River has been sold to a combination of Eastern
eapital with the Guggenheim ..nd Silverman interests sharing
fifty-one per cent. The ccnsidc-ialion mentioned is $5,ICO,-
000. ft. K. Neill, vice-president tnd rrsneger of the Premier
Mining Co. is said to be on his way back from New York. If
control of this mine has passed into the rowtrful 1 ar.ds re-
p >rted, great activity may be expected.

NEWS OFF THE WIRE
ROAD GANG
RACES SNOW
Speculation is rife as to the probability of the wagon road between Hyder
an I Stewart being finished this season
and predictions are freely made that
the citizens of these two towns will be
very fortunate if they are able to go
! back and forth on level footing by next
June. The first bridge work, connecting the wharf at Stewart with the
grade, is no where near completion and
there remain two bridges to build, one
of 225 feet aud the other of about 300,
tlie'iirst cf whichjean be worked only
at certain statre^ of the tide.

VICTORY LOAN.
The 1919 Victory Loan campaign is
now before the people of Canada. The
Dominion wants to again borrow from
her citizens to meet her obligations.
Previous loans were to meet her war
expenses. So is this one. Other loans
were over-subscribed. It was more
out of patriotism than interest-inducement that huge amounts of money
rolled up. It should be the same this
time. The obligations grew out of t e
war. They are Canada's obligations
and her people's.   They will be met.
Assurances have been given there
will be no politics in the campaign.
With politics kept out the peace time
loan ought to be as successful in proportion as the war time loans. This
year a new Finance Minister, Sir Henry
Drayton is at the helm. He has been
apart from politics for a long time a?
chairman of the Railway Board. With
all elements pulling together and in
harmony on the subject only succe s
may result. That this is the spirit is
is shown by the following letter frc m
the Liberal leader.
Ottawa, S pt. 10, 1919.
My dear Sir Henry:
I  am pleased  to join  with   you  in
commending the Victory Loan   to  tl e
people   of Canada.    It   is  itr.perati e
that Conada's credit  should   be  main
tained.
As the Government finds tha* ror-
row'nj; s a necessity to meet existing
obligations, it is in every way desirable
that the amount required should if
possible be raised within Canada itself.
I hope, therefore, that the loan may
be over-3ubscribed by citizens of tie
Dominion
You appreciate, of course, that n
t xpressing a desire to see the loan a
success, such obligation as I may have
in the matter of criticizing unnecessary
or extravagant public expenditures is
increased rather than diminished: and
that this endorsation is given upoi
your assurance that " he organization
of the campaign, everything about It,
is entirely and absolutely norKpolitical."
Yours sincerely,
W.L. MACKENZIE KING

TECOUSES
LESS FUEL
Robert C. Sweatt of the Tayor Engineering Co., Vancouver, has been
giving the camp the once-over with a
view to determininK its future necessi-
ties in the commodities which his firm
handle. He expressed himsel asbeing
impressed with the way the peo-
I i, here are getting things going, and
intends returning in a couple of months
r :��� longer stay.
Mr. Sweatt is a very strong advocate
of ,;���. 8emi-diesel type of engine and
believea that they will become extrem-
!,.popular in any part of this country
where hydraulic power is not available.
He -ays that the steamer Teco, upon
,.,, | ch he came north from Vancouver,
made the trip at a cost of $72 for   fuel
; lubricating oil.and was six days on
the way. The Teco can handle 3'X> tons
���f freight, and is equipped with a 160
h. p. semi-diesel engine. The fue 1 oi
for this type costs in Vancouver seven
a gallon which, compared with the
price of gasoline, looks like getting
. from home.

says the Valdez Miner. The snow at

work under conditions obtaining here
thay will be a success In any part of
thi i "rthland.
At many points on the trail, after tht
mountain range is reached, the drifts
become as hard as ice, and a sled would
have i" overcome sideslip as well as go
ii g < er the drifts. The road ia generally in excellent condition after snow
fall, as the glacier streams cease run-
. l with cold weather.
I case the sleds are given a try-out
here there is no doubt but that severa
can he sold to local men, as they will

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
jlti ulcer. Have you ever seen a
a man coma 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.
