UNITED EMPIRE
SPEEDY WORK
New Property Equipped for
Development Throughout
The Winter by Strenuous
Efforts
Ths United Empire property
is all set for the winter and from
now on climatic conditions will
have no bearing on the operations. Contractor Frank Riva
and his crew of seven men are
jomfortably housed, have all the
supplies they need to last them
until the trail is open in the
spring, and have made a start on
the 500-foot tunnel, being now
under ground about 30 feet.
While work on the trail was
forced to suspend, the worst
plaees have been put into good
condition and net much more is
required to be done to make this
as good a pack trail as there is
in ths district.
A second camp has been built
acress the basin from the Riva
camp, about half a mile distant
and a little lower down the hill,
and supplies have  been   cached
there for a crew who will be sent
#
in early in the spring. This is
intended as the first unit cf a
permanent camp, from which a
1400-foot tunnel will be driven
to give 700 feet of vertical depth
or 1000 feet on the dip of the
vein. The tunnel site iB subject
to anow slides and no attempt
will be made to start work there
until protection can be provided.
Both camps are situated in the
timber and are built of logs with
corrugated iron roofs.
OwinRtothe lateness of the
season when A. B. Trites bonded
this property, the utmost speed
was necessary to get established
Wore winter set in in earnest,
and it is due to the skillful supervision of A. St. Clair Brindle,
the managing engineer, backed
UP by the loyal support of packers and other outside workmen,
that such an accomplishment has
been made possible.

As against such men we need to establish
the technic of thinking.
Let it be understood among us that
no man has a right to an opinion on any
subject unless it rests upon the best thinking which we have upon that   subject.
There is no greater sin than that of holding an opinion as true without proper evidence, when proper evidence is available.
It is one of the defects of all experiments
in freedom that they encourage men in
the silly notion that we are all intellectually alike and equal.  We are not.   Most
of us do not know our bodies as well as
physicians do; nor can we build bridges as
well as engineers; nor can we manipulate
political machines as well as those who
have  perfected   themselves in that art.
Men do not understand situations simply
by being in contact with them.   We understand by studying properly.   And if
we have not ourselves studied properly

It'* a wise Brewmaster that eliminates competition in the brewing business by manufacturing a
superior product of unassailable merit.
ThU advertisement it not published or diaplayed hy the Liquor
Control   Board or by the  Government of British Columbia.
What ig probably the most important ore strike in the Alice
Arm district this year, was that
recently made by Wm. McFarlane on the Homeguard property.
Assay returns just received give
the following values: gold 0.04
ounces; silver 26.55 ounces; copper 0.76 per cent per ton. This
ore was picked right off the Bur-
face and was leached out considerably, so that with lower depths
the value should considerably increase.
Lots of higher values have been
obtained in the Alice Arm district, but it must be remembered
that the Homeguard contains immense bodies ef ore, but the
property has been a mystery to
mining engineers and geologists.
Immense boulders of rock have
been found, measuring 26 feet
wide and 50 or more feet in
length. These boulders carry
as high as 7 per cent copper, and
it has been estimated that 4000
tons of ore is in sight in these
boulders ready to mine.
lhe question was: where did
these boulders come from? They
could not have travelled any
great distance, or they would
have broken smaller. This question now seems to be answered,
as the ore trom which tbe above
values were obtained is solid
rock. This ledge is located a
distance of 400 feet above the
previous showings where a tunnel is driven, and lies in a southerly direction.
Mr Geo. Clothier, government
mining engineer, was on the
ground this year and made an
extensive examination of the
property, but this find was made
since his visit.
The owners, Messrs G. W.
Bruggy and Wm. McFarlane,
are jubilant over their good fortune in finding the key to the
mystery, and plan to do extensive work on the new ledge next
spring.
The Homeguard is situated
about 14 miles up the Kitsault
valley on the east bank  of  the
river and is only 1500 feet from
the Dolly Varden railway. A good
pack bridge was built across the
river this year, so that transportation problems will not enter
into the development or shipping
of ore from the property.���Alice

"FIXES ANYTHING"
Brightwell St. Stewart, B. C.
Meeting with the enthusiastic
co-operation and sanction of his
partner, M. E. Le Blanc, during
his trip to Ketchikan, A.S.Biller
returned te Smithers on Thursday to make preparations for
carrying on a program of development work at the Cascade
group of claims near Smithers
during the winter months. Mr
Miller stated that while the force
would be small the work would
be continued throughout the
winter on a program that is expected to have an important bearing on the property and its future operation. On Tuesday a
pack train started up the hill
loaded with supplies, and before
the week is over a start will
have been made on driving the
crosscut from the main tunnel in
an effort to tap at depth the \
high-grade ore shown on the
surface to the west of the long
tunnel.
It was in this crosscut that
the encouraging showing was
opened up over a year ago, and
the opinion has been expressed
that all these showings will link1.
up at the contact with the vein
to which they will drive.���Interior News.

SO THIS IS THE
TAIIOF A CALF
Little Cardena has arrived and
thereby hangs a tale.
No, Gentle Reader, Little Cardena is not a miniature steamship, modelled after the palatial
ship of the Union Steamship Co.
fleet.   Little Cardena is a calf.
A tale is connected with but
few calves. Were Little Cardena just an ordinary calf, this
paper would pay no more attention to her than to the Chinese
war or the U.S.A. elections. But
because Little Cardena is an extraordinary calf, that is, extraordinary in the manner of her
arrival, the old typewriter is set
to clicking, the type will one by
one be thrown into place, and
the press, under the powerful
tread of the News' super-mechanic, will grind out hundreds
and h.indrrreds of papers, heralding to the world this short
tale of a calf.
S.S. Cardena had made fast to
the wharf. Hatches were thrown
open, cheekers, sorters, stevedores and the watchful wharfinger were in their accustomed
places.
Up oame the first sling-load���
first-class mail. Among the mail
sacks was a calf. (There is a
chance here for some comment
about a lady-calf being sent up
with the mail, but let that pass.)
The checker looked at his manifest. "One cow for J. Campbell." he said. "Deuced small
cow," muttered the sorter as he
dragged the protesting animal
to the freight shed.
Wild-eyed and bawling, a real
cow was then hoisted to the
wharf.
"Here, hold on," expostulated
the checker. "Only one cow on
this manifest." "The first one
was a calf," answered the wharfinger, who is a student of natural history and a close observer.
"No calf on the manifest," rebutted the checker, just as quick
as that.   It looked serious.
"Put that first one down as a
stowaway," boomed Captain
Dixon from the bridge. So that
settled that.
Explanations disclosed that
the calf was born while the ship
was a day out from this port.
Great excitement on board. Blankets were rustled and the baby
carefully wrapped up. Steward
Bert Ebden produced a nursing
bottle. (What ean't a Steward
dig up!) Purser Russell Smith
knew what to do.    "Hold her up
Ito the cew," he directed.
Little Cardena is doing fine.
She don't have to^be held up to
theoownow.      -
