Jreat Ore Shoot Is Holding
Strong in North Drift-
Road Construction Being
Rushed
With a developed   length,   at
hursday night of this week,  of
28 feet of ore in one shoot,   the
unwell mine has probably. one
>f the largest  continuous  ore
hoot known in this district.   It
s not all high-grade, mind you,
ut throughout  the  brecciated
nd laminated vein deposit there
,re nuggets and plasters of sil-
er, deposits of  argenntite  and
ere and there a fleck  of   free
(gold, all giving evidence of  the
act that the Dunwell is a mine
n the making.    In the 528 feet
f drifts on the No. 3 level, cross
uts have been run every 50 leet
[from tha hanging   to   the   foot
wall, and the results have   been
11 the same, the opening   up of
wonderful shoot of high grade
illing ore, with enough  of the
ative and argentite to sort and
hip for ready money to carry on
perations.
Mo. 4 tunnel on the Dunwell is
ow in 196 feet, and it is antici-
ated that within the next 50
eet what is known as the wast
ein will be struck. This tunnel
ill be driven 800 feet to get
nder the showing! in No. 1 tun-
el, where drifting is now in
rogress on the wonderful high-
rade shoot.

Btive. They report values av-
rsging from $8 to $10 in the big

as occurred    throughout   this
Vel.
Work on road construction to
��� mine ia being rushed, it be-
K the company's intention to
Timence shipping ore this fall.
II material for the work is on
'�� ground, the camp establish-
. survey well under way, and
I grading crew working on
i�� lower end of the road.
Efficient Management
Irrespective of the fact that
there is more mining development than ever up the Bear
river this year, there are today four or more miles less
wagon road than there was
four years ago. In other
words the Bear river has lost
on an average ore mile or more
of road per year. It is safe to
say that there is not a parallel
of this efficient management
anywhere else in the province.
Premier Pays Regular Dividend
The Premier Gold Mining Co. on July 5 distributed another
��� dividend of $400,000, being 8 cents a share on a capitalization of $5,000,000. This brings the total dividends of the
"Wonder Mine" up to $5,688,000, all of which has been made
since the company started operations less than five years ago,
besides which the mine has paid for all operating expenses,
and equipment running into millions. Profits of operation for
the first four months of this year were $815,000, before making deduction for depletion. The first dividend was paid Dec.
31, 1921, the amount being $400,000. Since that date a similar or larger amount haa been paid each quarter.

Big, Bad Black Bear
Beautiful gardens are an attraction not only to human
beings. The other day a black
bear wandered into the garden
of W.B.George and started to
have a feed of green peas.
This not meeting with the approval ef the owner, and there
being no trespassers law that
will prosecute bears, Mr,
George had no other recourse
but to despatch the intruder
with his high-powered rifle.

A COMMENT
THE UNVEILING of the Cenotaph
in memory of the men from this district
who fell overseas during the great war,
was a ceremony long to be remembered
with a feeling of satisfaction by the many
who were present, not only from Stewart,
but also from our sister community of
Hyder, Alaska.
The International Service Club who
were responsible for its erection, were
particularly fortunate in obtaining the
services of a man such as the Rev. Mr.
Ashley, himself a returned man, private
ln the P. P. C. L. I., one of Canada's first,
and crack regiments, to officiate, and in
the assistance given him by the Rev. Mr.
Reddick of Hyder, and Father Allard; for
on these three men all denominatiions
could centre; in addition to which, with
the people from Hyder two great nations
were represented.
It would not be fitting to touch upon
The Weather Man must have a spite
against Stewart this year, for never in its
history was such a Dominion Day planned
or organized as was this year provided for
by the committee in charge, which was
drawn from every organization in the community. Fine weather right up to the
day, then pouring rain, followed next day
by a continuation of fine weather, appears
to give sufficient justification for the
charge.
It is to be particularly regretted, for
many splendid items had been provided
for, the committee having the hearty cooperation of the entire town, all working
hard to nuke it a gala day. In addition
to this, a number came down from Premier and over from Hyder with their baseball and football teams, to play the local
boys. Besides all these, numbers came
into town from nearly every property in
the district   OH!!
Later���Now we know that not only
the Weather Man but all his friends had it
in for Stewart on the 1st of July, for just
at this point, in response to many shouts
of "fire!" the editor was called away to
assist in extinguishing a blaze on the roof
of the largest building in town. This is
what he gets for having the temerity to
even talk about the day; and if this article
is not brought to a close here, the country
will go dry, or the roof will fall in on his
head; so good-by, Mr. Reader, good-by.
