LOCAL LADIES IN
BAD ACCIDENT
Mrs W. J. and Miss Crawford
are in the hospital as the result
of an accident Tuesday evening,
the former suffering from shock
and several bad cuts about her
head and face, and the latter unconscious most of the time from
concussion of the brain, as well
as being severely bruised about
the head, chest and   back.
Coming from Hyder in their
auto with Miss Crawford driving, they met a car driven by
Walter Blanton. Turning out to
pass, thc edge of the road gave
way and the car was precipated
12 or 15 feet down the rocks,
turning completely over and pinning the occupants underneath.
Walter Blanton extricated Mrs
Crawford, while his brother Harold secured help and lifted the.1
car from Edith. They were rushed to the hospital where Dr.
Whillans made a diagnosis, with
which Dr. Carson of Premier
agreed.   Today the condition of
Big Missouri Bonded Once More
���flTnother chapter is about to be written in the history of the Big Miss-
t\ ouri, the property that has caused mure comment, and excited more
interest in this camp than even the Premier itself.
George Collins, interested in mining and other enterprises in this province, and with headquarters now in New York City, has bonded the Big
Missouri, and development will be resumed at once. The property was
under bond to the Trites and Wilson interests, who made payments totaling $43,000 and did considerable work, but relinquished it for reasons not
divulged, though guessed at by people familiar with the property, the
guesses being in nowise detrimental to the mineral showings,
The information in regard to theftew deal is contained in a letter frcm
Dan Lindeborg to J. A. Hall, president of the Salmon River Bank in Hyder. Dan and his brother Andy are owners of the property. The new
bond calls tor a total payment of $250,000. A minimum number of eight
men must continuously be employed, and work was to have started today.
The principals to the deal have not^rrived however, so there will be a few
days' delay. This is a matter over which there will be no quibbling.
Harry Howson, who opened up a big shoot of high-grade on the property
two years ago, will be in charge

Beaton, (better known as Bill)
one of the real oldtimers of the
district returned to the scene of
his early endeavors, with a few
other visionaries, to open up the
mineral resources of the great

Mr Beaton was one of a small
syndicate formed at Mt. Sicker
on Vancouver Island in 1905 to
investigate Portland Canal, of
which glowing reports had commenced to sift to the outside.

the line development is done, the other

PREDICTIONS
ONE OF the special writers of the
Alaska Weekly, who signs himself E.W.K.,
has the following to say in the latest number to reach us:
"We have no disposition to say 'we
told you so,' but we want to call your attention to the fact that every prediction
we have made concerning the Portland
Canal Mining District is being justified by
daily news from that great camp.
"Our mistake has been on the side of
conservatism. We have said that it would
be one of the greatest silver and gold producing camps on the Continent. We
should have said that it was destined to be
the greatest producing camp on the continent.
"We believe it will be, and that before
another twelve months has rolled aruond���
and then it will only be started.
"With few exceptions British Columbia and English capital are making possible the development and will reap the reward.
"There are still many partially developed properties inadequately financed
and many fine prospects worthy of financial support for development purposes. All
mine development is in the last analysis,
gambling. The sure thing artist had better keep his hands off and take his 4 per
cent and be happy. If you want to do a
little better than that, you can't gamble
in a better game than in any one of a
dozen Portland Canal projects. The percentage is all with you to win."
The Alaska Weekly, which is published in Seattle, has always been a consistent
friend of this district. Recently an innovation was made by introducing a    Bri-
SALMON RIVER BANKING COMPANY
HYDER,   ALASKA
(Incorporated   Under  tho  Laws  of   Alaska)
THIS TIME last year the Portland
Canal District could boast of only one shipping mine, Premier; during mid-winter
the Outsider was brought in and has ever
since continued shipping copper ore to
Anyox. Last week two other properties
were added to the shipping list, Porter-
Idaho and B.C.Silver making their first of
a series of regular shipments to Tacoma
via S.S. Mogul, which also took out a
heavy shipment of Premier ore.
Thus in less than 12 months the district has produced three new shipping
mines, bringing the total of this class of
property up to four.
To be exceedingly conservative, two
other mines will be added to the list before
spring. Dunwell baa a large tonnage of
shipping-grade ore opened up, that will
make this property a heavy producer in
the very near future. Riverside, on Salmon river, seven miles from tidewater,
has a large tonnage of ore blocked out and
should be shipping concentrates before
the end of the year. The concentrator ia
expected to be ready for operation by the
1st of October.
Such a record as has been established
should be sufficient to convince even the
most skeptical of the great mining possibilities of
this district, for with the development of these
properties the opportunities have by no means
been exhausted. There are several hundred
prospects in this region, any one of which may
make a mine, it would be a thoughtlessly bold
man who would say otherwise. Surface showings
on Premier and Dunwell aa well as others were
such that many mining engineers of repute walked away from them. For several years the Premier was called a freak; for many years the dis-iGUARDiAN fire insurance CO.
trict was condemned, even by Government officials, as a low-grade, complex camp.
Theories without number regarding it have
been exploded. Many more yet remain that may
be thrown into the discard, for the district is as
yet hardly scratched or understood.
A great future awaits the mining industry
in this section, and the belt, of which the camp
forms a part, will one day be the world's greatest
producer of metals.

been found at points some distance away from the original discovery. Four miles to the west
of the Collier ranch a wide band
of conglomerate carries small
specks of asphaltum scattered
through it. The importance ��f
finding this asphaltum to be of
fairly widespread occurrence is
that it may be looked on as some
definite eyidence of the possibility of oil occurring in the formations underlying the surface
rock.s. It must be noted that the
asphaltum in itself does not occur in sufficient quantity to be of
any commercial importance; it is
only of value as ar. indicator.���

REPORT
In its issue of August 1 tha
Alaska Weekly says:
' 'Tha Portland Short Line Railroad, promoted many years ago
by F. P.Sttwart and associates,
and later taken over by Mann
and Mckenzie, will ba rehabilitated and put in operation, if the
plans of Morton I. Stewart, son
of F.P.Stewart, mature. The
success of the present promotion,
the Alaska Weekly is informed,
j is contingent upon being able to
get possession of the Ground
Hog coal fields. This is the matter that is being worked out now.
Mr Stewart is now in New York
City, where he went to promote
the railroad scheme, which he
has under option from the Mann
& McKenzie interests. He has
practically signed up with New
York interests to finance the undertaking, contingent, as stated
before, on being able lo seeure
the coal areas, which the tentative financial interests concerned
regard as vital to the success of
a major development plan..
