>IILE there has been considerable
prospecting of the mineral show-
of Marmot River section   during
past few years, a drawback has allays been lack of capital which is now
imised through the initiative  of O.K.
ush and others who have been most
-trnmental in bringing  the Portlrnd
inal district  to the attention of the
itling world.    Though   Marmot River
small area comparatively, the ore
kpi-nres are   rich   in   silver.     As   a
gtter of fact it was this very thing
fti ch held the Marmot back in 1910 aa
whole district was retarded   by the
Kv price of silver.

The dance Monday night in aid of the
brigade was a great success and another hundred dollars was added to the
fund. For real, honest-to-goodness fun
the affair probably was never equalled
in Stewart. Most of the men came in
their diggin' cl thes, except a few bold
spi'its whose endeavor at personal
adornment was too appatentand they
hat! to pay for their privilege by paying
fines to the fire fund. A motion picture
of the dance wa* taken by R.J.Suratt
lo*- theGaumont Weekly and Mr. Suratt
said he felt fortunate in having come
here so opportunely for he secured
from real life a northern dance maTie
picturesque by the careless elegance of j
apparel given to it by an intermingling
of miners, prospectors, mounted police
and business men.
The main event of tho evening was
the prize waltz which was won by Mr.
T.;rn Taylor and Mrs. Pete Murphy.
Another five minutes and Tom would
have been all in for he carried more
weight than anybody in ths room except
Pete himself.
The most glaring examplepf sartorial
splendor was Bill Fraser in a white col-:
lar and bowler hat. Bill hadn't worn a
white collar since 1911 and potatoes,
could grow on the hat. He came in
looking worried. Fire Chief Rogers,
floor manager, saw the collar and Bill
and signalled Tiny Daly, offic al bouncer
and tax collector, who catised Bill to
pn.duce some high grade for his offense.
Some minor specimens of manly pulchritude   contributed  varying amounts.
'Ihe real and only working man of
the evening was C M. Ridley who perspired the long hours at the piano.
Musical features greatly appreciated
were songs by i'ete Murphy and .lack
Homer and J. H. MeKnight's violin selections. The music fur the square
dance which was filmed waj supplied by
the fire chief and his trusty Qddle,
and George Shaw directed the figures
with more ur less BUCcess. The punch
l.owl without any pa*S*streak was directed by Bill Tooth and Chi Dampier
who was on the do1 saw that everybody
put a contribution in the hat.

BUYING OLAii
ON THE SALMON
After Two Years' Prospecting Much Traveled
Explorer Shows
Faith.
Several mining deal made during the
past few days are traceable to the activities of Hugh Benjamin McGuire
who returned rece.i tly from New York
and is now up Salmon River. Mr. Mc-
Guire's movements are being watched
with interest by those who know his
history for he has been in ail the big
camps and has been uniformly succes-
iul.
As a small boy Mr. McGuire started
his experience in the Lake o' the
woods country. Since then he has
made several important finds and he
is still able to carry his own pack in
the hills and cover* more ground than
many younger men. Among the mineral states which have known him are
Montana, Colorado, Arizona and Nevada. He was especially well acquainted
in the Virginia City field and became
very familiar with the formations and
dyke systems of the Comstoke Lode
d:ttrict. From a knowledge gained in
the many camps he has been in he
should be abb to know and compare
the results of his studies in this field
for he has spent two hard years prospecting in the Salmon River section
which he knows thoroughly.
That he has faith in Salmon River
section is indicated by his heavy buying and cash payments. When usked
as to his future movements in connection with properties he had made payments on as agent for eastern people
he merely replied, ''Well, any system
has been to go ahead when I think I'm
right." Asked for details with regard
to the different properties he had purchased, the showings, etc., he said
they were but grass-root prospects and
he was merely taking a chance. "Later
on as these properties develop," he
said, "I might be able to tell you
something about them but at present as
I cannot see under the ground you perhaps know as much as I do. It's all
guessing en my part."

WOMEN ORGANIZE
HOSPITAL AUXILLIARY
Women of Stewart and Hyder are
taking great interest in the opening of
the hospital. An auxilliary was organized yesterday with the following officers: Mrs. W.B. George, president;
Mrs. P.S.Jack, vice president; Mrs.
W. Cameron, secretary; Mrs. H. P.
Gibson, treasurer; executive committee
Mrs. Ward, Mrs. Gray, Mrs. Tooth,
Mrs. Stratford, Mrs. Jancowski.
Tentative plans far a benefit dance

SPECIAL MUSICAL
SERVICE AT CHURCH
The bright and attractive service
held on Easter Sunday evening  at  St.
| Mark's Anglican Church, Stewart, well
merited the support of the large number present. The soloists were Mrs.
Cameron, soprano; Mr. Murphy, tenor,
and Mr. McKnight, violinist.
Mr. Murphy's choice of the Rosary
gave excellent opportunity for the
dramatic power of his voice, which he
took full advantage of. Mr. MeKnight's tastefully rendered Beethoven's Minuet, was a further tsstimony
to his ability as a violinist, while the
well rendered solo, A Prayer Perfect,
by Mrs. Cameron, was a fitting choice
for the close of the service. The soloists were well supported by the accompany ist, W.C.Cameron at the organ.
Rev. H H.K.Greene desires to intimate that   arrangements are being
' made for special services, such as was
held last Sunday evening, on the first
Sunday in each month.

It has been estimated t at about
twenty new companies have been
formed for the purpose of development
and exploration in the mineral area to
which Stewart is the gateway. This is
in addition to the companies which are
actively operating. With all at work,

increased activity in local business.
