To Tap Showing of High-
Grade Ore
Seymour Campbell,   manager
' the Silver Crest,   was  down
esterday, and reports that  the
lew permanent  camp   is  corn-
Beted.   This is a frame building
vo stories in height,   with   kit-
hen and  dining  room  on  the
round floor and sleeping quarts above,   it affords accommo-
stion for all the men necessary
i the present development pro-
fam. The nine tons of lumber
ntained in the structure, was
ackeri in on horses from the end
' the wagon road.
!A short prospect tunnel is now
ing driven to get under the
iper showing, where extremely
?h grade silver is found under
l capping of porphyry. The
inel ia now in 35 feet and
|ould reach its objective in 55
et. One vein, three feet in
at the floor of the tunnel,
bich does not crop on the sur-
re, has been cut, and shows
od ore.
The present intention is to
btinue development until the
bw retards the work too much
j then close down until to-
rds spring, when transporta-
of equipment and supplies
nuch more economical than in
| summer. Now that a percent camp has been erected,
inch earlier start can be made
n if the crew were compelled

Trail Appropriations j
The Department of Alines, I
acting upon the recommendation
of George Clothier, Resident
Engineer, has made an appropriation for the Marmot river
main trail. While there is available no official statement as to
the amount of this appropriation, it is understood to be $2000.
The money will be used in putting a puncheon cover over as
much as possible of the 5000
feet that has become a ditch of
bottomless mud. Though late
in the season this work is much
needed, and will be of great assistance to  the  whole  Marmot

very adverse and apathetic conditions, to
arouse the town to the serious condition
that continually menaces it from fire, and
should receive far greater support than
has been the case in the past.
It is the moral duty of every male resident of Stewart to take a keen interest

the end that danger of a general confla

be reduced to a minimum.

THE WINTER ROAD
STEWART'S FIRE MENACE
THE SUDDEMNESS of last week's
conflagration at the power house and the
rapidity with which thousands of dollars'
worth of damage was done, brought home
to many, most forcibly, the great menace
that fire is to this community, in its present unorganized condition, It is all very
well to say this ought to be done, or that
ought to be done, and try* to carry on under a purely voluntary system, but it
atands to reason, in a rapidly growing
town auch as this is, that a large percentage of people are too busy with their own
particular undertakings to give too much
of their time to other things. Stewart
has become a little too large and too busy
to depend entirely upon a volunteer fire-
fighting organization, and the time has
about arrived when this feature of the
community's endeavor should be establish-

THE ATTEMPT being made by the
Citizens' Association and Board of Trade
to have the road from Stewart to the dock
made safe for traffic during the coming
winter is a step in the right direction and
one that is in every way justified. Last
winter snowslides and tons of falling ice
were a continual danger to all those who
had to use the road, and several nasty accident's were narrowly escaped, the onus
of responsibility for which would clearly
have been on the Government, for no other
means of communication with the dock
was available, and the money spent to put
the road in its present condition would |
have provided a pile trestle around the
most dangerous section.
It is to be hoped that some action can
be secured that will eliminate this menace
to the lives of those who, during the win- {
ter, have to travel the road. Certain it
is that no similar condition exists anywhere else in the Province, therefore an
emergency vote to eliminate it should not
be with-held.

THAT WINTER SCHEDULE
BRITISH SCIENTISTS AT JASPER PARK
IT IS hardly conceivable
that the management ofthe
Canadian National Steamship Services will actually
put into effect their announced schedule, even temporarily, of taking the big
boats off the Stewart run
and substituting for them
the Prince John.
Such an act. upon their part
will be a very serious blow to
their business into this port, that
they have worked so hard to
build up, for it will without
doubt resnlt in turning a great
deal of this business over to their
opposition companies, operating
under British and American registry.

SOME HINTS
TO HUNTERS
Be sure the season is open for
the game you shoot, and that you
are shooting on non-prohibited
territory.
Do nd carry firearms of any
kind without first obtaining the
necessary licence, and be sure
the parties out with you have
their licence also. Always have
your licence with you. A change
of clothes is no excuse.
It is unlawful to carry loaded
fire-arms in' an automobile. It
is unlawful to discharge firearms
from an automobile. It is unlawful to have more than the
bag limit of any game in your
possession.
It is unlawful to remove the
head or any part of the head
from the carcass of any deer
which has been killed until the
carcass has been transported to
the place where it is proposed to
consume it, and no person is permitted to transport the carcass
of any deer from which the head
has been removed.
It is unlawful to use or have
in in your possession a pump or
repeating shotgun of any kind
unless the magazine is so plugged as to render it incapable of
holding more than one cartridge,
or any automatic shotgun of any
kind, or any automatic shotgun
of any kind. Any such weapon
found in the possession of any
person may be seized by any
constable or game warden.
Before going hunting obtain
the regulations in respect of
game. These may be had from
the local constable.
A resident who is not a British subject and is not a farmer
within the meaning of the Act,
can obtain a licence for the sum
of $10 to hunt big game and
game birds.
No person is permitted at any
time to hunt or kill any game
birds or any member of the deer
family between one hour after
sunset and one hour before sunrise. Any person found between
these hours with headlights of
any description and firearms in
his possession is guilty of an offense against the Act, and liable
to immediate arrest without warrant by any constable or game
warden.
It is unlawful to trap bear,
or to put out poison for fur-bearing animals.

SMITHERS NOT
WORRYING ANY
With the arrival on Friday of
the last load of machinery from
the Dome Mountain property,
finis was written to development
operations by the Guggenheims
which opened with such great
promise over a year ago, and, as
so many believe, which closed
with no smaller prospects, says
the Interior News. For several
weeks the teams have been hauling down the big boilers and all
the other machinery and equipment used in the development
work, and with the last load at
the week end Superintendent
Henry Lee turned the key in the
lock of his office at Telkwa to
leave for other scenes. Weighted with detail and busy as a uee,
Mr Lee had not much time for
community work, but where opportunity arose he was willing
to lend a helping hand by moral
support and otherwise, and in
Telkwa and Smithers his departure is regretted.
In the time the Guggenheims
have been carrying out develop- J
ment work they have driven over
a mile of tunnels at several
points, and it is given as a reason for their withdrawal that the
bodies and values did not hold
up to expectations, a claim
against which issue is promptly
taken.
In the district there is no disposition to be downcast by the
withdrawal of the "Guggies."
The real reason for that with- j
drawal is possilbly not hard to
seek and reflects no discredit on'
the mineral resources of the dis-j
trict. While one excuse and an-j
other is broadcasted, there is always the fact that showings were
bigger and richer when they
closed than at any time, and
while the general manager of the
Federal Company blatantly peddles the yarn about the deposits
being no good, there is the other
statement by a still higher official that the withdrawal was no
condemnation of the district, but
was forced by a decision of the
head office to close down all operations running on capital ac-
count owing to the unsettled
conditions in Europe and in the
Orient, and all British Columbia
operations were in a development
stage operated on capital.

interest in certain lines is this
