[Some of the most spectacular
Itrh-grade ore yet developed  in
Dunwell mine, was  brought
town yesterday, consisting of
iveral hundred pounds of ore
lowing native silver and   silver
Iphides. This ore was from
Icrosscut in the face of the

let in width and is practically
Igh-Rrade from wall to wall.

Irthward additional depth on
le vein has been gained, and

le dip of the vein.

The trail up the north fork of
the Marmot, and to the Porter
Idaho property, was completed
last week, and in keeping with
the aggressive policy adopted in
all things by the management
high-grade ore is now being
packed down the hill and accumulated at thi beach for shipment.
Seventy-five to eighty tons of
ore averaging arouiid $200 per
ton has been extracted, sorted:
and sacked at the mine, await-j

pack train a good supply to start
with and eliminating any delay.
Similar ore is being mined in

Progress facilitated
A portion of the wagon road just beyond the railway crossing south
of Bitter creek washed out during the early part of the week. A
crew of men was sent out by the Government and cut a road around
through the bush, but as the water ia still cutting heavily into the bank,
it is predicted that with continued high water this also will Soon be taken
out. With Bitter creek cutting into its south bank as it now is, with only
medium high water, there appears to be every possibility that before
snow flies, it will swing south at the point of the present washout, and
come down along the east side of the railway track to a point somewhere
close to Gibson's cabin. If this happens the main Bear river wagon road
will be shortened by fully another four miles this season, and a wagon or
motor truck will be able to go only some seven miles up the valley, where
four years ago it could go 14 or 15. ���
The Government has had under consideration for nearly a year a cut-off
road from the north end of Ward's Pars to the Bitter creek bridge.   Un-
miles shorter before the end of this year.   Thus is progress facilitated.

ENCOURAGING DEVELOPMENT
LAST WEEK, on the front page of
thie publication, we drew attention to the
fact that each year, during the past four
years, the main Bear Rirer Wagon Road
has become shorter at the rate of approximately one mUe per year. Since then, by
the wash-out on the road just beyond the
railway crossing south of Bitter Creek,
an additional two miles of so-called road
has been rendered useless as such. Thus
a total of approximately 6 miles of road
out of some 14 or 15 miles, has, through
sheer neglect, been allowed to deteriorate
into, at least in spots, a poor pack trail.
There are four mining companies operating above what is now the end of the
road, in addition to considerable development and assessment work on numbers of
other properties.
Beyond what is now the end of the
road is a vast mineralized area that offers
very great promise.
Everything that has happened to this
/road was recognized as inevitable by t_o#e
who kept in touch, and each situation as
it cropped up was reported.
A delegation of mining interests in
the upper valley waited on the Minister of
Mines at Victoria early in the season, and
pointed out the situation to him, and received a promise that the road would be
put into condition as soon as the weather
conditions permitted. The Minister also
gave the same definite promise to organizations in the town. Weather conditions
have been favorable since early in June.
Since then two miles more of the road has
been rendered useless except as a pack
trail.
Mr. Kergin, the local member, has
done exceptionally well for the district in
the matter of appropriations that each
year he has succeeded in obtaining, and
while it is possible that still more money
is required, yet it is also possible that the
fault may lie elsewhere. Not having detailed facts on which to base an opinion,
we do not propose to say where or what
the trouble is, but results always speak
louder than words, and judging from results in this instance, it appears to be perfectly clear that there is something radically wrong somewhere.
The loss of approximately 6 miles of
main road out of a total of 14 or 15 miles,
in four years, in a rapidly developing district such as this, is an unparalleled condition anywhere in Western Canada.

ASSURING A FUTURE
While Stewart these days may appear
quiet to the ordinary observer, and as far
as the town itself is concerned is quiet,
this is a very good sign to the one who studies
the whole situation. No mining camp can ever
be put on the map by people staying in town. Men
must take to, and stay in, the hills, prospect, do
assessment and development work, and generally
dig into the mineral possibilities that present
themselves. This is exactly the situation here today. Almost every corner of the district is being
investigated, and just in the proportion that this
is done, will be the proportion of progress.

Local Stocks
The local  stock  market' has
shown considerable activity during the past week in Dun wells
and Glacier Creek, due'appar-
ently to the phenomenally long
proven shoot of high-grade ore
and the fact that this company
recently stopped selling treasury
stock. Both companies have felt
the consequent heavy demand
and as a result the shares have
risen steadily.
