Your Assistance Please
The response of citizens to the
appeal for voluntary assistance
to improve conditiona in the cemetery for the winter, has not been
as generous nor hearty as auch
a matter warrants. It would appear from thia that there are a
lot of people in Stewart who like
to practice the principle of "let
the other fellow do it." This is
a very short-sighted policy, and
not fair to the individual nor to
the community as a whole.
You are living here, Mr Citizen, making your home and your
living here, and if conditions are
to be improved, aa you so often
say they should���and you often

A COMMUNITY REQUIREMENT
THE CEMETERY for the town Of
Stewart is badly in need of certain Improvements, in order to provide which,
the Citizens' Association has issued an
appeal to the citizens of the town to turn
out on Sunday next, and give a few hours'
voluntary labor to the end that these improvements may be made.
This appears a very reasonable request and one that should meet with a
ready response from everyone who is interested in the wellfare and progress of
the community.
It is not in any way a sectional matter but one of importance and necessity to
the entire community.
Therefore it is not conceivable that
the request will meet with anything but
the readiest response from all sections.
JUST A MISTAKE
LAST WEEK'S issue contained a
headline that to some extent may have
been misleading and insofar as it waa so.
was ineorrect. The headline referred te,
pertained to a meeting of lhe Citizens'
Association and referred tol$ as the town's
governing body. Stewart being an unorganized community, there is no such thing
as a governing body, but insofar as the
Stewart Citizens'Association is the only I
incorporated body in town, and carries a
good deal of work that would ordinarily
be undertaken by a village or municipal
council, and in addition is the senior association, the error is possibly excusable.
BIG DEVELOPMENT YEAR
WITH the operating season well advanced it is interesting to glance over the
local field and consider the amount of development work being carried out, and
when a total of 21 properties being developed by companies or. syndicates, and 14
others receiving attention beyond the annual assessment work, are counted up,
a total is reached that comes as rather a
surprise; for though it is realized by all
that more development has been done this
year than in any one preceding year in
the history of the camp, still it was, by
casual observation, not realized that the
total operations were so extensive.
There are two very encouraging features connected with this development, either one
of which is of great importance. One is that in
the aggregate very good resulta have been obtained, and the other is that these properties are
widely scattered, being located in every section
of the district, which itself covers a very extensive area, at least 50 miles long bv 20 wide. The
great importance attached to the latter is the concrete evidence it affords of tha wide distribution
of the mineralization, thus leaving ample room
for the production of mines not yet heard of, or
for the matter of that, evidence of which may
not yet have been discovered.
It waa this condition that was responsible
for the statement made by an engineer of standing who, after several seasons spent in the camp,
said in all earnestness: "There will be mining in
this district for a hundred years" and "it will
take a number of years yet before the industry in
this section reaches its maximum; its possibilities
are as yet hardly recognized."

MINING MAN
LIKES NORTH
W. D. McLaughlin, wellknewn
oldtime interior Alaska mining
man, has returned to Seattle
from an investigation of Portland Canal mining district, the
Sitka region and the Dease Lake
country. In an interview with
The Alaska Weekly Mr McLaughlin said:
"I have visited the Portland
Canal district, the southeastern
Alaska district and tha Deaae
lake district in British Columbia.
I think the Portland Canal diatrict will make a wonderful
camp; I have no interests there;
merely went to look and see, and
make an examination for some
outside people, who are interested, and found things far better
than I expected. The big sensation there, at this time, is the
Dunwell mine. It is a wonderful property. It is five milea
from Stewart B. C, has transportation to tidewater, and haa
longest continuous shoot of are
uncovered in Canada. The shoot
averages ten feet in width, goes
$100 to the ton in gold and is
quite high in silver.
"I met an old Yukoner up there
���Bob Martin. It looks to me
like Bob waa  due  for the  big
igation on the Milne river to
Deaae lake, heart ef the district.
Also by tha fact that Captain Sid
Barrington, whaoted to be on
the Yukon river, has the river
transportation ap the Stikine,
employing some of the most
powerful gas boats ever operated
in the north. There ia no kind
of mining machinery that he can
not deliver.
"I managed to get two miles
of Thibet* creek that I think
ought to be one of the best dredging propositions in the Cassiar.
There has been two million dollars in gold taken out above and
on both sides of it, Still, I can't
say what it is until I thoroughly
drill the ground, and know for
sure. When I get through drilling I will know pretty close as
to how much money there is
there, what size dredge is needed and about how long it will
take to work it out. So the only
gamble is the cost of drilling.
"I would not advise prospectors to go into that country without a two years' grubstake. I
think there is some good country
in there to prospect, especially
on the Liard river."

which has some fine outcroppings
showing values up to $300 per
ton. I can't see how he can miss
the Dunwell's ore with his holdings. Bob, to employ a slang
expression, is 'sitting pretty' for
the big clean-up.
"Things in southeastern Alaska are picking up. All that is
necessary is capital. There is a
chance for some rich mines equal
to the Chichagof, when they are
opened up. I met several mining engineers looking over the
country and expect to see quite
a little development work there
in the near future.
"I spent two months over in
the Cassiar section of the Liard
mining district of British Columbia. It was a noted placer camp
in the early seventies that produced better than five million
dollars, under the eld method of
pick and shovel. There is still
lots ot gold there for hvdraulic
and dredge mining. The great
drawback to that section has been
lack of transportation. This has
now been eliminated by the B.C.
government building about 75
miles of good read from Telegraph Creek at the head of nav-
stock outstanding, and compares
with a net income of $320,163, or
92c. a share in the preceding
quarter.
During the quarter 44,701 tons
of ore were treated at the concentrator, resulting in an average
mill recovery of 76.82 per cent
and a production of 1,092,414
pounds of copper. The total net
production of copper resulting
from the smelting: of the concentrates produced and the direct
smelting ores treated was 8,899,-
118 pounds, an average of 2,966,-
373 pounds per month.
The average cost of production
for the period wns 10.95c. per
pound, exclusive of depreciation
of plant and equipment, but
after crediting gold and silver
values and miscellaneous income.
