having a real mine right at the
back door, so to speak, and perhaps a bonanza.
Where encountered, the depth
on the dip of the vein is at least
1000 feet, with a vertical depth
of about 750 feet. This is the
greatest depth yet attained on ai
vein in the district, the Premier
not excepted. From indications
apparent, the total depth to
which this vein may penetrate
is beyond the realms of conjecture. As the drift proceeds to
the north, additional depth is
gained. The north face of No. 3
drift is 900 feet below the surface, and No. 4 gives 350 feet
additional. It must be remembered that where work was suspended on the No. 3 level, north'
dnft, the vein is stronger and
r"-her than in any part of the
mine.
Drifting is now proceeding on

A VOLUNTEER ALLY
THE ACTION of the Hyder Alaska
Chamber of Commerce in endorsing1 the
movement to secure a railroad from the
head of Portland Canal to connect on the
prairies with one of the transcontinental
systems, is of more importance than a
first glanoe might indicate.
Alaska is a mighty empire in the
making, and as has been pointed out on
various occasions by this paper, its interests and the interests of northern British
Columbia are identical. Alaska has long
been, and still is, at the meroy of steamship companies, and a transcontinental
railroad readying any part" of her territory would be a Godsend.
This may sound overdrawn, but here
is how it works out: There is, on the
U. S. A. federal statute books, a law
known as the "Jones Bill." Under the
provisions of this bill, produce originating in the United States cr any of its possessions, and destined to be carried by
water to another section of the United
States, must be carried on American ships
and landed at an American port.
The principal export of Alaska at
present is fish. Without having the exact figures before us, we can say that the
Territory  ships  roughly  frcm 25 to 40
million dollars' worth of fish annually.
If early all of this goes to Seattle for transshipment. Could it be landed at Prince
Rupert for trans-shipment, two days'
time could be gained for its arrival in
eastern markets; but the Jones Bill prevents this.
A railroad could be built to Stewart,
at the head of Portland Canal, the logical
reasons for which have been repeatedly
given in this paper, and a two-mile spur
would give entry into Alaskan territory
at Hyder. Alaska produce could be loaded
there, hauled by rail across the continent,
complying wilh the Jones Bill and gaining
two days over any American route. There
is no argument as to what this would
mean in shipments of fresh fish.
If the Hyder Chamber of Commerce
can succeed in getting the rest of Alaska
interested, a great work will'have been
accomplished. Railroads are out for business, and if the Canadian National or
C. P. R. officials can visualize trainloads
of grain landing at this port, and train-
loads of fish going east, instead of empty
cars, they cannot help looking with favor
upon this port as a western terminus.
Good work, Hyder Chamber of Commerce!   Keep it up!

While Alice Arm has not experienced any
great mining boom during the past summer, some
good work has been acco.nplished. This has been
done chiefly by prospectors, in developing treir
own properties. Some fine ore showings have
been developed, and every nmv ore body discovered aidds that much more wealth to the ustrict.
It is somewhat disappointing that more rrvning
companies have not entered the field, but they
will come, just as sure as night follows day. If
the Dolly Varden railway was a public o vned
road, or was for sale at a reasonable price, il
would perhaps encourage minirg companies, who
now stand aloof, to come in. It would I e interesting to know if the railway is for sale, independent of the company's mining propei t;er, and if
b\ at what price. It would also be more interesting to learn if the government could, not confiscate the road for ror-operation, and lea*e it te
any company who wishes to operate it, or convert
it into a public highway.���Alice Arm Herald..
