R.  K.  Neill,  general  manage! for
; the reorganized company which now
owns the Premier m;ne, came in on
the John from the south Thursday, and
' willspend.a meek or so in tlie district.
Ml Neill confirmed everything that
wh-; ^aid in the interview i ublished by
! the Vancouver Daily Province last
week and went a little further.
As to working GO m;n in tho Premier
this winter as reported, he said that it
: wa�� the policy of the management to
w >: k every man on the property that
it was possible to put in position to
produce resuits, He is working in
perfect accord with the Guggenheim
and Keith interests who have bought
intj the property and they are of one
mind in a determination to push development as fast as possible a^d to ship
all the ore they can without delay.
Tho motor tractor which should cave
arrived on the John could n.it be handle I by thatcraft, a-id will com_> in on
a scow in tow of the Albert next Tuesday. This tractor Jis designed tolail
12 tons of ore, but Mr, Neill says h'1
will be s itisfi id if it will keep thi road
���'broke" -o that teams can work without getting stalled. In this event he
will ship in additional horses. He figures that under reasonable conditions
the mine will ship this year from 2(300
to 'WTO tons of ore.
Mr. Neill also said that the om-
pany would build a combination flotation and cyaitid-' concentrator ne\t
summer of from 80  to 100,to,i3 daily
, capacity.

The cry for lumber which was
heard on every side a few weeks
ago has been answered by W. Ii.
Campbell whose scow at the Premier wharf adjoining Hyder is still
weighted with many thousand BM.
Mr. Campbell has established himself permanently and the business
will be known &l the Portland Canal
Lumber Co. In providing the lumber he calculated not only present
needs, but for early spring as well,
lt seems likely, however, that the
present supply will not outlast the
immediate requirements of Hyder.
Stewart was built in the snow in
1910 and much of Hyder will be
built this winter. As lumber prices
are on the incline it is fortunate
lumber is available now.

STEWART, B. C, Nov. 14, 1919
Only one day is left of the Victory
Loan campaign and the spirit everywhere is to pile up as large an amonnt
as possible and make up for lost time
owing to lack of organization at the
beginning.
Stewart has settled down for the
long winter. About everybody who
contemplated wintering outside has
departed, and though some may go
out for holidays, the winter population
may now be estimated. It is gratifying to the oldtimers who spent so many
winters here during the lean years to
know there will be so many here this
winter. There will be no lack- of
amusement dnring the long evenings
for the Stewart Citizens Association
has prepared dances and entertainments.
The business outlook for the winter,
furthermore, is especially bright. The
mining companies which are operating
and will continue throughout the winter are the Premier, Big Missouri,
Mineral Hill, Forty Nine, Bnsh Limited
and Lakeview. A substantial payroll
is assured and nobody will be idle.
A vigorous kick against a fortnightly
mail service has been made, and if a
weekly service is not granted this winter there will be trouble in sight for
those responsible for forcing an inadequate service upon tlie district. To
inaugurate a weekly service such as
was given during the summer wouid
require but little more money. And
as the increased postage is still in force
in Canada the revenue must bi something tremendous.    Why not  use some
of the money toward a better mail
service? No department in Canada is
so under paid and this is especially
true with the small postoffices. It
would seem there are enough pcstofSee
inspectors and officials of one kind and
and another running around to keep
headquarters posted on development
and requirements. But they do not appear to do that. It should not be necessary for a community to get up petitions and fight for a square deal.
The department ought to know of the
increased population and development
here. It would know, if the inspectors
attended to their business. One was
here a few weeks ago but very few
knew it. Had it been generally known
the matter of the mail service could
have been discussed with him.
It does not seem quite the right thing
that the people of Stewart and district
should be compelled to go to Hyder,
Alaska, to get the benefits of a weekly
mail service. But that will have to be
done under present circumstances.
The time-worn system of studying the
voters lists in a case of this kind
wont do at til, at all. And w-' have
no local politicians who cut any ice in
the matter. This is a case where the
community is of one mind.
The
year.

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

More than likely he neglected
his teeth.   Don't neglect yours
