Preliminary Work, Preparatory To Mining on a

necessary preliminary work and

men employed for the season, 3J j
miles of horse trail was built   up
the hill; a cabin, 20x30, was constructed at the foot of  the  hill
and another, 18x22, at the upper
end of the  trail,   close   to   the
workings.   In addition to this, a!
large number of open cuts   were
mide and sampled,  and  considerable stripping done,  enabling
the engineer in  charge,   Martin
Whitworth, A.R.S.M., A.I.M.M.J
to follow out, plot and  compile'
nececessary data on  the  exten-1
sire mineralization, with a view
to the more intelligently  laying
oat a definite  underground   development   program    for   next
season.
This work resulted jn the tracing out of ten veins and a large
shiar zone, the latter traceable
from an elevation of 1100 feet to
2W feet, over a distance of 3000
���eet, occurring in the greenstone.
Above the zone there appears to
be a network of veins, many of
which carry high values in silver

others show considerable high-

ADDED IMPETUS
THE DEAL closed last week whereby Mr A.B.Trites, one of the heavy shareholders in Premier, acquired the Gold
Cliff property on Bear river, about two
and one-half miles north of Stewart, is a
matter of the greatest importance to the
community and the whole Bear river section, and is by far the most important
mining event for many months; for, coming toward the close of a most successful
season, it gives added impetus that will
have a most beneficial effect on next years'
activities, encouraging other mining
and loosening considerable development
-capital.
Mr Trites appears to have succeeded
in acquiring a very excellent property, a
"Gift of the Gods" as one experienced disinterested mining man termed it, the close
proximity of which to Stewart will very
much benefit the town when it becomes a
shipper, as well as in the development
stages.
Being situated on the west side of
Bear river, about opposite all the activity
in the vicinity of Dunwell, the development of this property will mean a great
THE CLOSING of the deal on the
Gold Cliff property constitutes a record
for which Wm. Dann and his associates
are entitled to the congratulations here
offered.
Acquiring the nucleus of the property
this time last year, it was not till the summer that climatic conditions allowed prospecting. But just as soon as it was possible no time was lost, and with powder and
steel and lots of good hard work, the
property was made to look like a mine in
embryo in a few short months, and before
the season closed a deal was made.
The history of this property is another
proof ot. that oft-repeated axiom that only
by hard work can a property be made attractive to development capital.

ONE of the most persistent advertisers in the history of success was Robinson
Crusoe. He knew what he wanted���a
ship���and he put up an ad for one. He
flung a shirt on a pole, at the top of his
island; that, in languge of the sea, was
plain to evory sea-faring man.
The circulation was small���there was
no other medium,���but Crusoe kept at it,
despite the fact that he got no inquiries
for a long time. He changed his copy-
as one garment after another frayed out,
and in the end he got what he wanted.
Suppose Crusoe had taken down that
signal after a time and declared "Advertising doesn't pay," where would he and
his story be now?
Put up your signal and keep it there.
Crusoe advertised under very discouraging
circumstances. You've got a sure thing-
it is only necessary to have the patience,
persistence and pluck of Robinson Crusoe,
and the good ship "better business" will
soon tie up "alongside your pier."

whose efforts money for the initial stages of mine development
would not be forthcoming, know
nothing of   mining   themselves,
up their option, was taken under
developmentby the owners, Chas
Carlson and Jas. Hewitt, who
drove a short crosscut tunnel   to
most of them never having seen!disprove, if possible, the state-
a mine. As a rule they are even ��� ment said to have been made by
as ignorant of mining terms as j the Days' engineer, to the effect
most of the reporters who write that the high-grade surface
mining articles for the city pa- showings would not go down five
pers. Enthusiasm goes a long! feet. In this they have been
way, and the salesman of ten j successful, cutting the vein on
gets by on that, aided by the j Homestake No. 1 at a depth of
fact that hi3 "prospect" is as ig-; 35 feet, and finding it  not  only
norant of mining as he is.
How one young salesman in
Victoria became inocculatedwith
the virus of enthusiasm, was
told here the other day by a local mine superintendent.
It appears that this young fellow was trying to sell a certain
Bear river stock and was
making good. One day he was
introduced to Benny Erickson in
Victoria, and of course started
in to sell him some stock in the
company he was trying to help
finance.
Now, Benny is not a stock
salesman and doesn't claim to
be; but what he doesn't know
about Bear river properties
wouldn't make much of a book.
He had no interest in the property the salesman mentioned,
but being a natural-born booster
and having properties of his own
in the same district, he backed
the young fellow into a corner,
and in that soft, slow, conversational tone of his, he expounded
upon the exceptional merits of
the ground. He told abont the
surface showings, the work done,
the ore developed and future
possibilities as a productive mine
with the expenditure of the necessary eapital.
The salesman listened wide-
eyed and open-mouthed, and
when he was able to break away
from the spell ot that hypnotic
description, he rushed to the office of his company and bought
a thousand shares for himself.
Since then he has been a successful stock salesman.
Yes, enthusiasm helps a lot.
And it pays to be posted.

larger but apparently richer than
it appeared on the surface.
The vein in the tunnel is five
feet wide, with two feet of solid
steel galena and three feet of!
high-grade milling ore. At the
time Carlson and Hewitt were
talking to the News representa-
_0-. tive, no assay returns had been
received on this showing, but
the steel galena on the surface
assayed 104 ounces in silver, 84!
per cent lead and $6.80 in gold.
The group consists of eight
claimi and is situated on the
north side of the west fork of
Texas creek, about nine miles
from the bridge across Salmon
river at nine-mile. It is close to
the pack trail built by the Alaska government, and presents no
difficult transportation problems

President Kahn Confirms
Report of Rich Discovery
In Crosscut Tunnel at
Eleven-mile
For several weeks past, rumors have been flying about to
the effect that an ore body of
exceptional value had been opened up in the Daly Alaska crosscut tunnel.   The News has  re-
vertically under the surface exposure of the ore body. This is
taken to indicate a length of &V
least 120 feet on the ore shoot.
Development work is now being
carried on with a view to proving up the length of the ore body
also its width and average grade.
Mr Kahn said it is not the policy of the company to keep developments at the mine secret,
but that the company does not
favor premature publicity regarding any strike made. On
account of the fact that rumor
has been busy, and with a view
to  correcting  any wild   state-
frained    from   commenting  on' ments that may  be  made,   Mr
this alleged strike, owing to the Kahn wishes te make  it  plain
fact that no confirmation could
be obtained from an authentic
source. However, the president
of the company, Jesse J. Kahn,
of Vancouver, recently yisited
the property, and prior to returning south gave out a statement which verifies the report
that a discovery of great promise has been made.
Mr Kahn said   he  was
oughly satisfied with the results
of the past three weeks'   developments, but. that it  was too
early as jret to make  any  posi-
size
that the Daly Alaska Mines Co.
is carrying on development at
Eleven-mile with the objective
of making a mine there if it can
be done, and that only.

made to the smelter.
The ore body encountered occurs at a contact of the greenstone with quartz-porphyry and
at what appears to be the intersection of No. 1 and No. 2 ore
bodies. Apparently the same
geological conditions found at
Premier, obtain on Daly Alaska,
and this, together with the fact
that native silver and argentite
are found in the ore body now
being developed,--leads to the
conclusion that a mine of the
same type and magnitude as the
Premier may be opened up at
Eleven-mile.
A depth of over 200 feet is obtained at the point where the
ore body is cross-cut, and at a
distance of 120 feet from  being
