FRED STORK, M. P.
t      	
PY   UNPRECEDENTED  majorities
in Prince Rupert, and several places in
the Interior, the electors of Skeena Riding expressed their appreciation in no uncertain terms of the work done in the past
by Fred Stork, M. P., and confidence in
him in the future.
A pleasant feature of the campaign
in this section of the riding at least, was
the good feeling in all three camps, Liberal, Conservative and Progressive; one
and all, retaining their allegiance, met
socially and in a business way and joshed
each other freely in the best possible spirit
of fun. This, to a great extent, was due
to the lead given by the candidates themselves. It was throughout a clean fight,
well fought, and fairly won, and the winner deserves congratulations, even from
the opposing forces.
Whether Mr Stork will take his seat
among the Government benches, or in op-
whieh developments promise to exceed,
this district in a few years will catch and
poll a larger vote than any other district
outside of Prince Rupert.
At the Provincial election in June of
last year the total vote polled was 272; on
the 29th last it was 366, an increase in one
year of 94 votes.
The increase over 1921 of the number
of votes polled in the Dominion election
in Prince Rupert is only 69. In the 1921
election the total Stewart town vote was
141; on the 29th last it was 366, an increase of 225.
There is nothing that encourages the
parental care, love and affection of a Government for a district, regardless of party, as does a big vote.
relied upon to do his utmost, and
work hard for these much-needed improvements, and that he
will gladly accept all the assistance that the district is capable
of affording him; therefore it is
up to the people here to get busy.
GUMMED THE WORKS
Premier King has announced
that he will call Parliament on
Dec. 10th. that being the earliest
possible date on which it can
meet. With nine of his Cabinet
Ministers defeated, as well as
himself without a seat, it should
be an interesting session. The
opposing forces are now busy
maneuvering for control, realizing the political advantage that
the machinery of Government
gives the governing party in
an election, which cannot long
long be delayed. The Stewart
merchants sell fly paper in the
summer, but the voters of Canada this year sold the political
parties political fly paper, and as
a result rather gummed the
works.
DISTRICT ENTITLED  TO ROADS
The appropriations made this district
last year by the Provincial Government
for roads, trails etc., were without doubt
good, the best ever, and a great deal   of
real good work resulted, for which Mr Kergin,
M.L.A., the Minister of Public Works and the
Minister of Mines, are justly entitled to credit.

ELECTION COMPARISONS
REGARDLESS of which side any
person in the Portland Canal took in the
election of the 29th, great satisfaction can
be obtained therefrom. There are few
things which denote the growing importance of a place as does an election, and
the recent one certainly showed up this
district to good advantage.
In the last Dominion election, 1921,
Portland Canal was 5th from, high place
in the number of votes polled in the Skeena Riding, outside of Prince Rupert. On

The completion of the Bear River road im-
provemement program to American Creek, and
up-keep of side and extension trails, will of course
be undertaken early in the spring, also the completion of the Marmot River road to the forks.
New work that the Government will have to
consider is the cenversion of the present east
trail to the Big Missouri from the Bunting cabin,
into a wagon road. Such a road will be 100 per
cent more warranted than 100 times its mileage
of motor roads now under consideration in the
south, for such roads will never create payrolls,
nor business generally in this province, nor any-
thing-like the revenue for the Government, that
will the Big Missouri as an operating mine; therefore, the sooner it is brought into operation, the
better for the entire province.
Another condition that requires immediate
attention is the road from Stewart to the dock.
For the amount of traffic it has to accommodate,
this possibly is the worst piece
of road in British Columbia. It
needs to be widened and surfaced with crushed rock and tar,
for no less substantial surface
will carry the traffic. Such surface, we believe, would if properly hand led.-toot cost any more
than the old method of graveling
and in the long run would be
far cheaper.
It is a strange thing that while
the road from the dock to Stewart is in a deplorable condition,
the road from the dock to Hyder,
Alaska, a foreign town, is a good
one. both built by the B. C. Government and kept up by it.

There are over 20 known veins
comprised within the limits of
the Trey group. Others will
probably be discovered. Of the
veins referred to twelve are exposed on the southern portion of
the group, and about eight veins
on the northern or Goat Creek
portion. The veins are of unusual persistence, strength and
dimensions, most of them ranging from 20 to 50 feet in width.
While it is not to be expected
that al Jof these veins will prove
of economic value, it is notable
that almost all of those prospec-

north side of Goat Creek at a
point where there appears to be
an intersection of several veins,
the ore changes from the high-
grade silver minerals characteristic of No. 1 or Contact vein, to
galena.
The most striking physical
feature of the Troy group is Mineral Gulch, occupied by No. 1
vein, which is properly described
as the main Contact vein. This
vein is traceable for 3000 ft. and
definitely occupies the contact
between the Bear River and J
Naas geological series. It has a i

which the highest values and
strongest mineralization have
been found, is that described as
the No. I or "Contact" vein.
There is good reason for these
conditions, for this vein occupies
the centact between the Bear
River and Naas River formations
The Bear River formation is the
same as that in which the Premier, B. C. Silver, National Silver, Big Missouri, Hercules and
Forty Nine mines occur, and it
extends into the Troy group as
far as Mineral Gulch, a deeply
eroded canyon occupied in its
upper portion by an arm of the
Mt. Dilsworth glacier.
The Bear River series is represented on the Troy group by andesite greenstone, feldspar and
quartz porphyries, and dicritic
dykes. The Naas series is represented by slates, schists, some
limestone, and dioritic and dia
basic dykes intrusive into them.
West of the No. 1 or Contact
vein are twe others with parallel
strike in the nerth-south course
entirely within the Bear River
series. Intersecting these are a
number of crosscourses of varying dip and strike. All other
veins are in the area covered by
the Naas series of argillites and
their accompaning intrusives.
Some of the cross veins are
almost as large as the main
north-south veins. For instance
the Forrest vein, discovered by
Mr R. L. Forrest, President of
your Company, was found on being measured, to have a width
of 22 ft.; while another cross-
vein, known as the Mary vein,
is from 40 to 50 ft. in width.
The northern, or Goat Creek
vein system is notable for its association with two belts of dykes,
differing in strike and intersect-
is exposed in the bed of the
stream flowing down the gulch
and in the steep walls of the canyon. The north wall of this canyon rises in an elevation of about
100 ft. to the slope of the ridge,
while the south wall attains an
elevation of about 300 ft.
A large and rapid stream flows
through Mineral Gulch from the
main glacier. The accessible
portions of the vein have been
developed by open cuts over a
length of 2000 ft. Where opened
by such cuts the vein is strongly
mineralized, and especially so at
points of intersection with cross
veins. Where examined it was
found to carry a paystreak of
high-grade ore about 4 ft. in
width. It is probable that this
vein will prove to carry the most
valuable ore depesits on the property, and its exploration by
diamond drilling or other development should be one of the first
undertakings of your Company.
The average valve of the samples
of ore from this vein on which
assays have been obtained is
$181.30 per ton, mainly in silver,
but the ore also carries appreciable quantities of lead and zinc.
The minerals are tetrahedrite,
argentite, galena and blende.
Lack of space prevents notice
at this time of the numerous
other veins, mining facilities including hydro-electric sources,
the modern camp etc. described
by Mr Haggen. His concluding
remarks, however, follow:
As you will see from the accompanying plan, the Troy group
has an extraordinary development of mineral veins of exceptional size and strength, suggesting the possibility of developing
large bodies of ore. This is the

SILVER TIP
IS RICH IN
HIGH-GRADE
The Silver Tip Mining Development Company, which has its
headquarters in this city, has
had very encouraging reports
covering the past season's operations and the outlook for the
future, says the * Victoria Colonist. In addition to the excellent reports from Mr J.V.Clegg,
the directors have the advantage of a report by Mr C. W.
Frank of this city, who visited
the property and reports that
the ore readily lends itself to
concentration. He recommends
the carrying on of the development work to prove up the values in the crosscut tunnel that
has been started.
During the season the well-
known May P. J. contact was
shown up by stripping and ��pen
cuts, which work disclosed a
good grade of commercial ore
bodies carrying gold, silver, lead
and zinc. Owing te a small creek
following the contact in which
the vein outcrops, water conditions interfere with sinking on
the vein. It was therefore decided to crosscut it at a vertical
depth of 90 feet and then drift
on the vein.
A small amount of open cut
work was done on the Morkill
vein, which contains fair average
values in gold, silver, lead and
zinc. A considerable amount of
prospecting was done during the
summer season, with most encouraging results. Several good
looking vein outcrops have been
uncovered by stripping and open
cuts on the Bella Coola and Silver Leaf claims. Large pieces
of ore float which assayed from
20 cents to $40 per ton in gold
and from $30 to $280 in silver,
and also good values in lead and
zinc, were found. This ore float
caused further intensive prospecting of the whole property.
Three veins, respectively five
feet, 18 inches and ten inches,
were located.
The source of the largest pieces
of ore float, which were also the
richest, has not been found yet,
owing to the heavy glacial wash
which covers the rocks on the
southern part of the Silver Leaf
claim, Considerable stripping
of the ore-bearing area is required to find the source of the ore.
A deep open cut was made which
exposed a considerable amount
of good ore, 30 inches of which
assayed $165.84 in gold, silver,
lead and zinc; the balance of the
vein is concentrating ore and
some waste rock.
A crosscut tunnel of 110 feet
would give 90 feet of vertical
depth.
There is every reason to believe
it is stated, that the Silver Tip
property will become an important producer of high-grade shipping and concentrating ore, and
in view of the encouraging outlook of this property, the management feels optimistic as to
the outcome of future developments contemplated.
