Magee Completes Work for Year on
Marmot Holdings-Encouraging
Results on Three Groups
to   be   Bufficientlj
Form Club
A meeting of returned lervice
was held  in the gtewart
'H. C. Magee, who since the
spring has been doing development work on his Marmot river
interest, has shut down work for
the winter and will leave on the
Prince Rupert for Vancouver,
Sunday.
During the season Mr. Magee,
who has had several men employed, and has done considerable work on three groups of
claims: The Patricia, owned by
himself and Dr. R. E. McKechnie
of Vancouver; the Montana,
owned by himself and Angus
McLeod and George Bruggie; the
Aberdeen, consisting of four
claims, owned by himself, Dr.
McKechnie and Mrs. Scott of
Vancouver.
On the Patricia, situated on the
south fork, containing seven
claims, the tunnel has been extended 22 feet, giving a total
length of 82 feet. Most of the
work this season was confined to
further exploration, open cuts
and stripping; also to the building of trails and a cabin close to
the new showings that were located during the summer.
The season's work has shown
up a large mineralized zone,
striking in an easterly and westerly direction across the entire
group, and part way across the
Montana - following the contact
between the granite rocks and
the green stones. In this zone
Mr. Magee, during the summer
has uncovered with open cuts and
by stripping, three large low
grade leads, assays from the surface of which run all the way
from $3 to $5 in all values; and
three high grade veins, on which
assays taken from the surface to
a  depth   of   eight   feet !n open
and one-half miles of tidewater.
Four assessments were also
done by Mr. Magee on the four
claims of the Aberdeen group,
situated on the west side of the
north fork of the Marmot, and
immediately adjoins the Idaho
group on the southwest, A
large open cut was put in on the
Copper King claim, exposing a
6 foot copper lead, carrying considerable bornite. On the Copper Queen a 15 foot open cut was
made 6 feet deep, showing up a
12 foot quartz lead, highly mineralized with galena. A number of
other leads were also located on
this property, but owing to the
shortness of the season and the
volume of work Mr. Magee had
in hand no work was done on
them.
Eli Watland was employed by
Mr. Magee since July.
Samples of ore from the Patricia group can be seen in the
News office.

Armistice Dance
The Armistice ball, given  last
Friday evening in  the Stewart
hotel, was one of the most successful functions of its kind ever
held in Stewart.    A large number of people came down  from
the  mine,   and   also over from
Hyder, with the result that the
hall was filled to capacity.   Miss
Ryan, who was in charge of all
arrange ments,    deserves    great
for the evening being   the   success that   it   was.    The decorations,   carried    out    by   Frank
Bowler, were exceedingly good
��nd   very   appropriate   for  the
occasion.    Harry    Scovil,     who
was master of ceremonies,   kept
the evening going wihh a swing.
The   music,    supplied    by    the
cuts, give  values  varying  from j Stewart orchestra, supplemented

AN  INVITATION
THE News is now established in its
new quarters, which are more commodious
than the old, and extends a hearty invitation to its many friends, both in town and
on the hill, to take the first opportunity
of paying the office a visit.
The interior alterations, which were
made by Duncan McLean, stand as a
credit to his workmanship, and show what
can be done in a town where finishing materials are difficult to obtain.
A number of technical mining journals are kept on hand for the perusal of
those directly interested in mining.
PUBLIC   WORKS
only in the British forces, but also those
who served in the forces of the United
States.
Such an organization will tend to keep
alive the friendly feeling that now exists
between Stewart and the American town
of Hyder, which in time will grow into a
link in the chain of a friendship and
mutual understanding that is rapidly being
forged, and is so necessary to the two
great English speaking natrons.
An organization of this kind will,
from its inception be absolute unique, for
it is believed that no where else in the
world does such an association exist.
Such a club can he of great benefit, to
not only both communities, but also a
source of pleasure and recreation to the
men concerned, for smokers and gatherings can be held such as that of last Saturday, whereat exceedingly good talent
was unexpectedly unearthed. It could
likewise be used as an information bureau
for men coming into the district, thus
being to them possibly of very great
assistance.
AMENDMENT   EIGHTEEN
COMMENTATORS are not agreed
whether prohibition was approved or condemned in the recent United States election.
There was no direct issue, though aome state
platforma were concerned with prohibition law
enforcement. Conclusions from there-election or
defeat of certain dry or wet candidates are unsafe.
The whole discussion is academic. Promotion
must remain law in the United States as long as
Amendment XVIII remains a part of the constitution. It will stay until it is repealed by vote of

next year, will be most gratifying to every
resident and operator alike, for while it
will create a considerable payroll, most
important of it all is the fact that, when
completed, it will afford good and cheaper
transportation facilities, to the various
mining properties that are awaiting development, thereby enabling more money
to be spent on the ground, and so the
quicker open up mines that will give the
district a much larger and more permanent payroll. And in so far as this is the
case, the work done will be of far more
importance than the temporary payroll
that it will directly create. The profits of the Molsons Bank for the year

ONE   OF   THE   BEST
OF   THE   SEASON	
BRITISH  COLUMBIA   MINES
From coast line toSelkirks the
present noticeable transition
from pessimism and inactivity to
optimism is extremely gratifying. The present movement in
the province is not confined to
ont or two localities.
The record of the great Premier mine, near Stewart, which
will return to its shareholders
over three million dollars in dividends this year, has re-directed
noticeable attention to coast districts, with the result that much
new development is under way
and prospectors are once more
abroad over a wide territory offering wonderful possibilities.
The Kamloops district is showing more activity than for several years past.
The Slocan is taking on its old
aspect ot' prosperity,
Several deals are under wsy in
East Kootenay, and the area of
which Nelson is the center is
coming in for a good share of
public attention.   The most re
assuring feature of the situation
is that big capital is again on the
lookout for promising prospects
and has many accomplished
scouts in the field.
Several important transfers of
productive properties are practically completed, and it is certain that announcements in the
immediate future will add to the
fame of British Columbia as a
locale for profitable investment
in mines.
British Columbia unquestionably has the resources and it is
beginning to profit from sane,
consistent publicity. Its laws
are the best in the world and it
enjoys the paternalistic and enthusiastic aid of a minister of
mines who understands the importance of his position. Capital is encouraged in every legiti-
and every legitimate way and
every effort is made to provide
reliable information from official
sources.���Mining Truth.

THE   FIRST   CHURCH  BELL
[David W. King who died in New Jersey a short time
ago, is the author of tbe following poem. Twenty-
five years ago he waa editor and proprietor of the
Kaslo Kootenaian and will be remembered by many-
old time Kootenay miners, now working in the Portland Canal district. Jim Ward is still alive and
living in New Denver:]
"The firat church bell in the Slocan will call saint
and sinner to worship at New Denver tomorrow. " ���
News Item,
"I never quit a camp until I hear the first church
bell. "-Jim Ward.
"Say, Bill, what was that chimin'sound
I heard a while ago?
It sounded like a church bell,
A-ringin soft and low,
And stirrin' up old memories
With its echoes, don't you know."
He was digging on the mountain-
Silver mountain- when a bell
Sent up from far below him,
Soft as any funeral knell,
Its first imploring music,
And it bound him like a spell.
And mushing down the crooked trail.
Hat in hand, to where Old Bill
Cooked the bannocks and the bacon
ln their camp beside the rill,
Walked the searcher after treasure,
Pioneer of Silver Hill.
Another time, a church, a bride,
Like some old forgoten song,
Memory brought back to the searcher
As he heedless strode along.
Another time, a church, a bier,
Came with memory's rushing throng.
"There, Bill, it's startin' in again,
Ringin' soft-and ringin' low;
You reckon it's in Denver,
The new church bell? Bill, you know
This old camp's almost done for,
And it's time for us to go."

This winter Victoria is so quiet
that a deaf man can hear the
rain drop.
There's a man in Stewart who
loves darkness rather than light.
He should be sent to the Old
Man's Home.
Those folks whogoaround talking about a man being as crazy
as a goose, should go out and try
and ahoot one, just to get an
idea of how crazy a goose is.
Next- summer shooting promises to be good in the Portland

pile and let the Hies do your
dirty work.
Grumbling seems to do
people some good. It's like the
groans ot a Bick man. TfctJ
don't do him any good unbss it
bi in making other people feel
miserable, and there is some
taction in that.
