HERE IS A GOOD PICTURE OF PART OF STEWART'S MAIN STREET.
Several Important Deals are Reported to Have Been
Recently Made in a District That is Fast Attracting
Notice on the Outside.
THE ALICE ARM section of the northern mining district is
again forging to the front after the set-back it recehed dur-
the troubles between the Dolly Varden Company and the Taylor
j, jople. It is a country that is rich in mineral showings that are
now receiving the attention they deserve. The rer jrt of George
Clothier, district mining engineer, on the Alice Arm section is
is very heartening. The town of Alice Arm is a hustling camp
bunt by old pioneers of Stewart.

���yHE ABO\ L picture conveys a good idea of the appearance of Stewart
this spring. The majority of the buildings stood up very well during
the years this was almost a deserted camp. Now that Stewart has been
rejuvenated the hardships are less as there are buildings all ready. Those
who pioneered this camp in 11*10 are inc ined to chill "at the thought of
"tenting by the old camp fire"-rin the snow. Which sounds romantic but
isn't.   Not a bit!

Work on the property of the Bush
Mines. Ltd.. is in full swing, according
to Grant Mayhood who got the camp
organized and returned to town on
Wednesday. The vein is being crosscut
on the sarfaee in high grade ore similar
to the Premier which the Bush adjoins
on the northeast.
The intention is to expose the vein
by a series of surface cuts before selecting a tunnel site. When work was
got under way on Monday the first
round of shots blew down ore with
native silver scattered through it.
On the way back Mr. Mayhood got
off his horse to stretch his limbs and
the animai bolted for the hillside getting over place* which Grant declares
a goat couldn't negotiate. After much
difficulty he succeeded in driving the
horse to a place where it was safe to
mount again.

Road Gang is Getting International Ore Highway in Shape
for Heavy Traffic Which is Expected this Fall.
Salmon River at present is the scene
of much mining activity with several
properties in operation. Scores of
prospectors are in the hills also and the
indications are that the district will receive a thorough examination.
At the famous Premier mine an assay
office is being built and twobunkhouses
are also under construction to accommodate the increased force of men
necessary to carry forward the * development programme. One is being put
up at the upper tunnel and one at the
lower. The portable sawmill at the
mine is in operation.
The road gang is doing good work
getting the road up the valley in shape
for heavy traffic. Pack trains are go
ing up the valley every two days with
supplies for the various camps.
On the property of the Bush Mines
a bunkhouse is being erected and preliminary mining commenced on Monday
At the Payroll, working under bond
from Pat Murphy and Mclntominy, a
small force is opening the mine up
under direction of Glenn Thompson,
M.E.
A force of eight men started work on
the Big Missouri this week. William
Noble is getting the <-an:p organized.
R. M. Martin, one of the owners of
the mineral llii:. was down during tne
week and reported thi-.t work is being
prosecuted in No. 1 crosscut of the

STEWART, B. C, June 13, 1919
Nelson, the beautiful capital of the
Kootenay country, and headquarters
for the Slocan, Nelson and Ymir districts, will be hostess at the second International Mining Convention, to be
held Thuraday, Friday and Saturday,
June 19, 20 and 21. 'Those who attended the convention at Vancouver will
certainly pack their war bags and head
for Nelson, which city is out to take
away from Vancouver the reputation
of having had the best mining eonven-
ever held on this coast.
The gatharing at Nelson will be under
direction of Fred A. Starkey who knows
how.   Two years ago at Nelson's first I
international  mining pow-wow he per- J
formed wonders  in   organization  and j
was the driving force that  made it go.
Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines, promises to attend and may be
accompanied by other members of the ���
cabinet. The government gives its;
support to such meetings, recognizing
their importance to the mining industry.
The joint   committee  on cooperation
of the American Institute and the Can-;
adian Mining Institute will hold a  sesj
sion at Nelson, snd  it is the intention ;
of the western branch of the C.M.I, to
hold an  organization  meeting for the
purpose of forming   a   branch   for   the
Interior.
It is proposed by the .Northwest Min-1
ing Association of Spokane   to  organ- j
ize a special train   to - the   convention. ���
The Chamber of Mines of Vancouver is
giving its hearty support  to the Nelson
convention.
The Portland Canal Prospectors' As-'
sociation  may  be    represented.     The
convention has the best wishes  of  the:
association of  this  district   and if any
members are on the outside on the con- ]
vention dates   they    will  alter   their I
course for Nelson.

Prospectors are already coming in
with new ore samples. -Some very
good looking samples from Goose Creek
and Marmot River were brought down
during the  week.
funds to carry forward its work which
combines that of a chamber of commerce and publicity bureau. The officers who were elected a few weeks
ago are oldtimers who have a stake in
the camp and men deserving every assistance that can be given them tif extend the work of the association and
make it effective.

This camp offers a very good proposition for a medical man. Stewart has
now settled down to a steady growth
and newcomers arrive by every boat.
A doctor who would take his chances
with the rest of the business interests
ought to do' well here. In the Brat
place he would have the government
grant, all to little as it is, and he would
have one of the best hospital institutions, fully equipped, that a mining
camp ever posse��.-.ed. I iis home would
lie furnished him. And then, too, doctors now and again "get ir. on" something good in the mining line. Now,
docs, don't ail speak at once, for there's
only room for one.

credit for bis public spirit is Harr> 1'.

open-cut 30 feet long on the foot-wall,
from which a crosscut has been driven
:i0 feet to the hanging wall. The vein
filling between the two basic dykes
which appear to form the walls is a
siliceous rock, with about 8 feet of
it on the hanging wall of quartz, which
carries the values in argentite, ruby-
silver and a little galena. There is
ibout a toot of high-grade ore lying
right on the hanging-wall which will
assay over $100 a ton, the balance of
the 8 feet averaging around %%& a ton,
with still less values in the remaining
portion of the vein toward the foot-,
wall. It is a very promising showing
30 far as opened up, and .with a tunnel driven at a further obtainable
depth of 100 feet will probably develop:
;nto a very valuable property.
The Tiger group, consisting of two '
claims owned by Kd. Pickett, is situ-;
ated on the east side of the Kitsault,
about two miles abort the end of steel
at the Dolly Varden. A very strong.
well-defined quartz vein 8 feet wide
has been traced for several hundred
feet by open cuts and surface strip-
pings, lying in the andesite formation
of this silver belt. The quartz is heavily pyritlzed, and in general, so far as
exposed on the surface, is low grade:
however, recent work on the upper
portion of the vein has disclosed some
very high-grade silver ore of urgen-
tite, ruby-silver, and native silver, and
further exploration may prove the existence of high-grade shoots in ihe
vein.
VERY PROMISING PROPERTIES
The Torlc group of four claims is J
owned by Strombeck Bros. The claims
lie on the east bank of the Kitsault,
just south of the Tiger claims. At an
elevation of 150 fet above the railroad
&rade an open cut exposes a U-foot flinch vein of barite, with quartz-bands
running through it. in an andesite
country rock. Vertical bands of galena
and pyrite lie in this gangue of barite
and quartz. A sample taken from the
dump, as it was thrown from the cut,
gave an average of 17 ounces of silver
to the ton.
The Musketeer group is owned by
Miles Donald and Al .\linnr. There
are five claims, lying just north of the
1'iger group. Two veins have been
opened up on tlie property, one striking about parallel with the vein on
the Tiger claims and the other at right
uii<!e< to it, their point of junction
I eing up the hill at. an elevation of
8,006 feet. Both are big, strong veins
of pyritized quartz carrying small
values in gold and silver, but worth
exploration tor highgrade ore shoots,
which seem to be characteristic in
this class of vein.
The Climax group is situated on the
north bank of Trout Creek and will
iie about half a mile from the railroad
when it Is completed through to the
Wolf. The vein differs somewhat
from the general type found in this
andesite or greenstone formation, in
ihat it is composed of country rook
through which small veinlets ol Quartz

vein and about 110 feet along the surface. It shows a vein of quartz, with
small enclosures of slate, with a few
inches of high-grade ore along the foot-
wiill, which lies on the slate country
rock. The rest of the vein on the
surface is low grade. The cross-section in the tunnel of the mineralized
zone shows a vein of 4 feet in width.
consisting of parallel bands of quartz
and elate, fairly well mineralized, and
showing, argentite and ruby-silver,
with, occasionally, native silver and
gold.   On the hanging-wall side of this :
, vein for VI feet is a belt of slates impregnated  with quartz in small vein-
I lets, evidently of low value, conforming  with   the  strike  and  dip  of  the (
vein.    On   the   foot-wall   side  of   the
vein for several    feet,   not yet penetrated by the tunnel, the formation is
a  banded  quartz  and  slate,  not  con- i
forming with the dip of the vein, but
standing   perpendicularly, slightly mineralized with pyrites and in which an
occasional speck    of    native    gold Is
found.    An  average sample from  the
dump, eliminating tlie slate, gave assay
of S ounces silver,  which  is very en- '
couraging.     There   is  another   quartz
I vein on the property on which nothiug
I has been done.
! 'The Homestake group of four claims
is owned by Davidson and others of
Alice Arm. They are situated on tlie j
west side of the Kitsault, at its head,
about twenty-six miles from tidewater and about eight miles from the,
railroad at the Dolly Varden. The
vein is an altered greenstone, up to 30 :
feet wide, exposed at intervals by
open cut3 for a length o�� ."iOU to 600
feet, carrying galena, pyrites and cop-
per sulphide on the northern portion
of it. It is a showing whose possibilities as a concentrating proposition
will appeal to anyone, and with the
improvement in transportation facilities which this section deserves will
doubtless receive merited attention.
There are several good looking
prospects situated above the Home-
steak' ground. The more important of
these are the Matilda claim, owned by
Arthur Smith; the Tip Top claim, be-,
. longing    to   11.   Mann;     and  the  Pox
claim and fraction owned hy (). Flint

The Wildcat group, owned by Davidson &  Macey, is situated on the west

It would be the first visit of the minister in his ofh'icial capacity.    A trip of

minister  of  Unds,   was   here   a   few

he gave Cast papers, he  was   greatly
impressed.    He   was   accompanied   by
Frank Mobley, M.L.A. for the district
who saw to it that the minister did   not
overlook anything,

Daily Stories of Good Showing
in many Sections Drift into
Camp���Sam Fitzgerald Back
with Excellent Samples.
Early in the week S. P. Fitzgerald
returned from Goose Creek bringing
with him some fine looking ore found
in an open cut he and his brother are
working. It is their intention to do
more work on this showing.
Work on the Dunwell group, situated
between the Stewart and the Lakeview
up Glacier Creek, was started this
week by J. W. Stewart. Some preliminary work will be done for the present. Mr. Stewart expects to have
something more to report later.
Pat Daly was down from Salmon
River during the week with the news
that they will soon be at work on the
International. A force of five men is
making trail and getting the camp
ready.
Good reports already are coming in
in from all directions. Indications are
that the more accessible ground will
receive a thorough prospecting this
season. Parts of the interior also will
be prospected and it is being freely
predicted that some important discoveries will be made.
Fred Nash, surveyor, of Masset, arrived or: Sunday to do some surveys
for the Premier Gold Mines, Ltd.
Ed J. Williams, owner of the launches
Rough Rider and Teddy, of Ketchikan,
arrived on Tuesday with the Teddy and
brought word that an emergency mail
service was being arranged between
Ketchikan and Hyder. While Mr. Williams has been very accommodating as
regards the mail, in the past he has
been making the run between Ketchikan and Hyder only as freight or passengers offered. On the present trip
he brought powder and freight for the
Salmon River Trading Co.
COBALT MEN COMING.
A party of mining men from  Cobalt
is  expected   to reach  Stewart   soon, j
The personel of the party is not known.
Cobalt capital  is  becoming  largely in- j
terested in    British    Columbia   silver
