STARTING WORK
ON SILVER BELL
Seattle Syndicate Gets Busy
On Property Overlooking
Stewart���Have Fine Surface Showing
E. G. Reibe, consulting engineer for the Silver Bell Mining
Co., who arrived from the south
Saturday, started five men to
work on the property on Monday
of this week. A pack tram of
supplies was sent up the hill to
the lower Silverado camp which
will be used for a short time,
while a trail is constructed south
to the camp site located for the
Silver Bell operation.
The first work after the erection of a temporary camp will be
open cutting on the big vein and
the commencement of a short
crosscut tunnel. This vein, when
sampled on the surface last year,
gave very satisfactory returns in
gold and silver. Traceable for
some 1600 feet on the surface,
the vein is one which offers very
great promise, and will be thoroughly explored.
The property consists of eight
claims adjoining the Silverado
on the south and immediately
above the mouth of Bear river.
The camp site is located at an
elevation of some 2600 feet,
Mr Reibe, at the time of speaking to the News, was not in a
position to give information concerning the interests behind the
undertaking, other than they
consist ef a syndicate of influential business men of Seattle.

HIGH-GRADES
IT IS NOT the intention of the Port
land Canal News to boost the Portland
Canal District as a high-grade camp.
The mining fraternity well know that
where commercial bodies of either milling
er smelting ores exist there must be seme
occurrences of ore that will bear the expense of mining and shipping direct without local treatment. This camp may have
more than the usual percentage of such
ores. We believe it has. But we are ready
to admit that the foundation of the camp,
the factor that will make it a long-lived
producer, lies in the great bodies of the
lower grade ores.
But���there are high-grades and high-
grades.
Take Campbell's calves, for instance.
Nowhere can be found a herd of healthier,
happier or better bred little bossies than
our local milkman has now browsing
around on tha sweet clover that takes possession of the ground whenever the brush
and timber are cleared off.   They are an
inspiring sight and a cure for metamorphosed eyes. The prospector whose eyesight has become silicified through too
strenuously peering at rock in attempts
te discover the elusive speck of gold or
flake of native silver, has only to gaze for
a few moments at these bovine reminders
of the old farm-stead, to be cured of his
affliction.
Strawberries, 12 to the pound; other
berries in proportion; Swede turnips that
melt in your mouth; potatoes so mealy they
break open when baked; lettuce plants 18
inches across and crisp as an old-maid's
conversation; cabbages that have to be
held back to prevent them from growing
so large as to be uusaleable; all these and
more are grown in Stewart
Yes, there are high-grades that do not
need to be blasted out of solid rock. Too
little attention has been paid them in the
past, but there is no reason why the Bear
river valley should not produce at least all
the small fruits, berries and vegetables
needed for local consumption. We predict that the days of importing these commodities are just about numbered.

The success attending the use of airplane
transportation in other mining centres and camps
of Canada, is a matter of interest to the industry
generally, and particularly to the Portland Canal
and northern B. C. where, though the topographical features of the country are very different
from those of the east, yet are in no way insurmountable. The whole of northern B. C. affords
numerous lakes and rivers for landing places
where floating logs etc. are seldom met with. The
editorial here published from the Canadian Mining Journal as it affects, and is in operation in the
east, should be of interest:
"The air service to the Rouyn goldfleld in
northwestern Quebec continues to give the utmost satisfaction. Since the first flight on May
22nd Laurentide Air Service have been transporting passengers and supplies continuously, and no
accident has occurred, in spite of the initial difficulty due to untried landing places and the constant difficulty due to floating logs ��� the initial
venture in commercial flying in Canada continues j
successfully and without interruption."

NEW CONTRACT
a      ei, am  i _   ��
(Alice Arm Herald.)
In a recent interview with the
Herald, J. B. Haffner, general
superintendent for the Granby
Co., stated that the company
had decided to drive at least 200
feet of tunnel on the Bonanza
property, and it is probable that
300 feet will be driven. Messrs
J. Lade and Vince Lade, of
Stewart, have secured the contract, and work has already commenced. No diamond drilling
will be done on the Bonanza this
year. The Bonanza lies about
li miles southwest of the smelter and the ore carries copper
values.
In speaking of further work at
Quartz Point across the bay, Mr
Haffner said that owing to the
low price of copper, no work will
be done on the property this
year. The company are obtaining 125 tons of silicious ore per
day from their Outsider property
and also 40 tons from C. Clay's
property at the north end of
Larcom Island. Now that the
concentrates from the mill are
being treated at the smelter, it
is not necessary to use as much
quartz as formerly.
The concentrator is now giving good results and is practically running to capacity, treating 2000 tons of ore per day.
and producing ooncentrates of a
high percentage.
it. The mining industry of Alice
Arm has been a little quiets ince
the closing down of the Dolly
Varden mine, but the next few
months should witness a big revival of our premier industry.
The Homestake Mining Co.,
who have been operating the
Homestake property at the Kitsault glacier, are negotiating for
a bond on the Toric property,
and it is expected that agreements will be signed in a few
days. The Homestake Co. have
already commenced construction
of a camp. The compressor plant
which was intended for the
Homestake property and which
is now at Trout creek, will be
taken down to the Toric, and all
outside work will be rushed to
completion before the snow flies.
During the week J. O. Trethe
wey made an examination of the
Moose property, which is situated in the upper Kitsault country.
He made a thorough examination
of the property and was well
pleased with the ore showings,
both on the surface and underground.
Bob Mclnnes is working on
the Lucky Strike property at the
Kitsault glacier. He expects to
commence driving a tunnel this
year to strike the big ore   ledge
at depth.
