weeks ago leised the old Baldwin
block for a term of years.%announces
that he will open a small bote1 with
bar, dining room and lounge room
downstairs and fifteen rooms upstairs.
He has gone south to get necessary

A FAREWELL PARTY.
Mrs. Grant Mahood was hostess on
Thursday night at the Commerce Bank
building, the occasion being in the nature of a farewell to the premises as
the Mahood residence. Dancing was
enjoyed until the small hours. A dainty
supper was served at mignight.
SEND ORE TO Cf. PECK IN OTTOWA.
At a meeting of the Stewart Citizens
Association last Saturday night the
secretary was instructed to communicate with Hon. T.D.Pattullo regarding
tiie applications for purchase of lots
which reverted to the Government at
tax sales.
A report was received to the effect
that it had been decided by the Nor-
them Hydro Electric that its franchise
application for this district could not be
got through the legislature tbe present
sitting. James Stewart advi ed the1
gathering that there were hopes of
getting the water system started in the
near future. It was point*, d out by the
president, H.P.Gibson, that it was important that the water sys'em start up
Bo that fire insurance could be obtained. ���
The president was authorized to ap-1
point a committee to take up with the
Stewart Land Co. tha purchase of the
present firehah with ^i view to its removal to the Town Hull site donated
to the town by the land company.
A   letter  was   read from   Inspector
McLeod with reference to the mail service.     As the   G.T.P.   has   started   a I
weekly schedule to   Stewart   the   prob- i
lem of a better mail  service   seems in i
course of solution.
Col. Cy Peck, M.P. wrote  asking for
ore samples  and  photographs of   the j
district  for the   information  of  those
who call at  his office in the House of
Commons.
,    The subject of a scavenger  service
came  up   and   it   was   reported that a
, Vancouver   man    would   probably   be
i available to look   after  this  work   for
which there is no rush of applicants.
SALMON RIVER
OPERATION AT
GOOD SPEED
MAHOOD WARNS
AGAINST BUSH
Another shipment of ore from the
Premier mine is ready to go south,
on its way to the Tacoma
smelter. The shipment amounts to
some 300 tons. Work at this big mine
is progressing satisfactorily. The
settlement of the differences between
the men and management means a
season of steady operations. The machinery for the concentrator plant has
been hauled up the hill and installation
will commence in the near future. D.L.
Pitt, assistant general manager, went
south last week.
At the Big Missouri development is
proceeding with the usual force. William Noble who is tn charge for the
Pacific Coast Development Co. is getting the supplies in by toboggan so as
to do away with so much packing during the summer months.
Supplies for operations at the Spider
and other developments of the Algun-
ican Development Co. in Salmon River
section are being got in rapidly under
personal supervision of W.A.Meloch.
The Forty Nine is proving one of
the sensations of Salmon River section.
Development is proving in every way
satisfactory. Because of a lack of timber the crews have been taken from
the winze and upraise, both of which
are in high grade ore, and have been
put to drifting on the Forty Nine lead
and crosscutting for another lead
, which parallels it.
The force on  the  Bush  Limited  has
. been   reduced for the  time  being  and
the superintendent, Harry Tanner,  has
gone outside fof a visit.
At the New Alaska the tunnel is
still crosscutting ore having gone
through some 40 feet.

In an interview in the Vanconver
Sun, Grant Mahood issues a warning
agains a premature 1 ush. The article
goes on to say:
Grant Mahood, a pioneer prospector
and mining man from Stewart, sounds
a warning to prospectors and working-
men, advising them not to be in too
great a hurrv to go to the great northern silver camp.
"The middle of April will be early
enough for workingmen, prospectors or
any others except those having bus-,
i. i ss Li do to go to Stewart. There
are three or four feet of snow on the
ground now and hotel and hoarding
house accommodations are limited.
P,actically the only thing a newcomer
can do is to camp in the snow.
"Of course, a< soon aa  spring opens
up there "ill be  a  rush to  the camp.
Half a cozen si paniea are now
��� g in Buppliea  and  machinery and
ens of smaller ones are planning de
uieiit operation)

Take time now
TO HAVE your teeth attended
to. Do not wait till aches
force you. If your teeth are in
bad condition it means your
health is being steadily undermined. Keep them attended to
properly and you will be saved
a lot of misery. Nowadays dental science has removed largely
the former fear of pain and the
oldtime fears are gone.
