AD AND TRAIL
CONSTRUCTION
With an Early Start Made,
Government Work Being
Rushed in Many Parts
Of the District
With possibly one of the earliest starts ever made on the season's road and trail building
program, work is progressing
very rapidly.
Some 25 men are employed at
the present time on the Bear
river bridge, tightening up the
structure, and filling in the two
! ing approaches with gravel and
rock. Ic is estimated that some-
t .ing like 12,000 yards of ma-
terial will be used in this work.
The Department's road grader
is now employed widening and
crowning up the road between
the east end of Bear river bridge
��nd Glacier creek, the first mile
being about completed.
A small crew of men is engaged constructing a new bridge
over Glacier creek, the old one
being badly damaged by the past
winter's weight of snow.
Beyond GTaeFer creek another
crew is building a trail up to the
Slur and Dandy property.
Terminus Contract Let
All preliminaries to starting
work on the Terminus property
are now complete. The necessary supplies have been centralized, and are only awaiting the
opening of the road, which is being rushed, to be moved up the
hill. A 300-foot tunnel and drifting contract has been let to Geo.
Tonkin, whieh it is confidently
anticipated will be completed

CARELESSNESS REPRIMANDED
WITHOUT wishing" to injure or place
difficulties in the way of any operation in
the district, there are at times things that
cannot be overlooked.
In this particular instance we wish to
bring out the fact that there has been no
publication in this district since about 1913
named the "Portland Canal Miner," and
at that time the Premier jmine, as such,
was not known. There are only two papers
published in the district at the moment,
and these are the Hyder Weekly Miner and
the Portland Canal News.
We make this definite statement for
the reason that the Silver Ledge Mining
Co. of Victoria are circulating literature
containing an item concerning the Premier and district in general, entitled "The
Wonder Mine" and nnder this a sub-head
in brackets, reading "From the Portland
Canal Miner." The article starting off
with quotation marks, with a title of the
sort mentioned, would lead people who are
not acquainted with the district to suppose
that the item r is originally published in
a local paper, ^nd as the first two words in
the title of this paper are "Portland Canal," and as the last word in the name of
the Hyder paper is "Miner," and as this
paper is often spoken of by strangers to
the district as "The Miner," an erroneous
impression could be easily created.
No such article as the one referred to
ever appeared in the columns of the Portland Canal News under the present management, which has dictated its policy for
the past three and one-half years.
With the substance of tbe article quoted we have no quarrel, but only with its
title, and then only for the reason that it
can be misunderstood.
Never having been on the ground acquired by this company, it would be unfair to say anything about it, or deal with
its merits in any way, but judging from
the fact that it was located by H. Horstman, a prospector and miner of experience
who has spent many years in the camp,
and who during that time has done a great
deal of very close and selective prospecting, it is safe to presume that the prop
erty has merit.

With   this issue the Portland Canal
News enters upon its sixth year of publication, leaving behind  a record of five
years of honest endeavor to serve the community as a recorder of local events from
week to week, during good times and bad,
and to at the same time advance the interests of the district by spreading informa
tion concerning the possibilities that iti
offers for the investment of capital���car-j
rying the gospel of these possibilities from |
Unalaska to Texas, and from the Pacific seaboard
to Sweden, Great Critain and  Switzerland.    The
actual traceable results of this work  are  hard  to
estimate, but it should not be too much  to claim
some little credit for the activity that the district
is now experiencing.     For  the  full  measure of
support that has been  accorded  the  paper,   the
management is duly appreciative.
