WASHINGTON
SUBSTANTIAL
One of It's Heavy Backers
Declares That the Company Will Thoroughly
Finance the Property
A. H. Jarman, member of the
legal firm of Gavin McNab & Co.
nfSan Francisco, who arrived
recently, is one of the big men
interested in the development of
the Washington property on the
south fork of Marmot river.
While Mr Jarman's home and
business are in San Francisco,
he has spent the better part of
the past eight years in Washington City in the interests of the
Pacific Coast Chrome Producers
Association snd allied industries
who, since the cessation of the
war in 1918, have been fighting
the U.S.Government under tbe
War Minerals Relief Act. While
on this business in the east Mr
Jarman met Malcolm J. Woods,
and with him became interested
in the Washington. Mining is
not new to Mr Jarman, he having been connected with it in one
way and another fer 80 years.
Mr Jarman says that lumber
and materials will at once be
taken up to the property for the
erection os a permanent camp,
it being the intention to operate
all winter. "We do not expect
t) make a mine in a year." said
Mr Jarman, "but will continue
our exploration and development
for three years; in fact we intend
to give the property every chance
"There are three things essential to the making of a mine;
first, you must have the property; second, capital and third, intelligent expenditure of this
money. These three things we
hav��," he said, "and with regard to the third necessity 1 may
say that Mr Lundvall has done
exceptionally good work for the
time he has been on the property
and the money he had at his disposal.
' 'I am very pleased with the
prospects of the district, and as
far as our property is concerned
we have never had a blank asssy.
if we get the ore we expect, we
have the money to completely
^uip the property for produc
tion, including a tram to tide
water at the mouth of Marmot
river.
"If we strike the ore this winter it is our intention to next sea!
son have Doctor Henry M. Ami
of Ottawa, a Canadian geologist
*���* international reputation, and
John Carter Anderson, of Tucson
Arizona,-make a thorough examination of the company's holdings. It is also the intention to
later incorporate the company

To be attacked by the king of
all the ice worms, and to battle
grimly for life while clinging te
an ice pinnacle on the Marmot
glacier, was the grewsome experience of Harold Garden, well
known land surveyor.
Garden was employed i* the
survey of the Marmot Metals
property, and was making his
way around the foot of a bluff,
over a piece of particularly bad
ice that was seamed and crisscrossed with crevasses. Leaping from ice ridge to ice ridge,
sometimes over a distance of 25
feet or more, and with his transit, rod, aneroid, steel tape and
other tools of his profession, besides a collection of iron corner
posts, set of drill steel, axe, four
pound hammer and a few sacks
of cement draped with his Cuss-
to-Mary sang froid about his
shoulders, he became suddenly
aware of a most foul and sickening odor that issued from a large
hole in the ice beneath a pinnacle
As the perfume of glaciers is
usually sweet and wholesome,
he could not but investigate tbe
cause of this unusual effluvium,
so poked his survey rod into the
hole. Immediately there issued
a hissing like the escape of steam
from an overworked marine
boiler, while the fetid odor became almost overpowering. At
the same moment a most uncanny apparition came rushing toward him. Ihere was only one
thing to do under the circumstances, and he did it. Hurling
a suitcase full of lunch down the
monster's.throat to impede its
progress, he leapt for the summit of the ice pinnacle. Never,
in all his experience of running
mountain goats to death to obtain food, had he put so much
spontaneous enthusiasm into a
40-foot spring. Siezing the spire
of the pinnacle with his arms he
spun round and round with such
speed that the ice werm, whish
had leapt at the same time, lost
its head through dizziness and
fell into the chasm below.
But did it stay there? Nay,
nay, Pauline.
More cautiously this time, the
worm scaled the pinnacle by employing the scales on its belly,
which grow there for such emergencies. As it was about to grab

RICH ORE ON
B. C JONANZA
The B. C Bonanza Co., developing the Spider property in the
upper Salmon basin, this week
brought in some wonderful samples of native silver ore, one
large piece in particular containing veritable silver nuggets.
This ore was taken from a high-
grade vein said to be about four
feet wide with ten inches of high
grade, traced on the surface for
some 400 feet by open cuts and
stripping, in which distance, the
management states, it cuts the
big vein. It is estimated that
the tunnel started by the Algun-
iean Co. will have to be extended
about 15 feet to cut this ore at a
depth of 200 feet, and the plan is
to drive this extension in the
spring, and to as well crosscut
into the big vein, an estimated
distance of 60 to 75 feet. A. R.
Peters, who has been in charge
all summer, leaves for Vancouver
Sunday.
Captain  Duncan   MacVichie, been named by  the provincial
prominent mining engineer of

of the fish ladder at the falls below Meziadin lake. He reports
that the salmon run this year is
a little below the average; otherwise everything is normal. In
speaking ot the trail, Mr Hickman said that it is in very bad
shape, with overgrown brush,
and the puncheon on the bridges
is all rotten and dangerous for
horses.
WORKMAN CONTROLS
INTERNATIONAL CO.
E. R. Workman, formerly of
Stewart and now of Anyox, and
one ef the originators of the International Electric Co.. this
week completed a deal for the
control of this company.
In an interview with the News
Mr Workman said that while he
has purchased control there will
be no change in the management, Ernest Love continuing to
be in full charge. The control-
ing interest was acquired from
Mrs Workman and G. B. Lawrence. For the present at least,
no changes will be made in the
policy of the company. Mr.
Workman has returned to Anyox, where he expects to remain
until spring.
authorities as Fire Prevention
Week. L. Potterton, deputy Are

Saturday, Oct. 9.
R. G. Birch, formerly of the
staff of the local branch, Bank
of Montreal, arrived from Prince
Rupert Monday to relieve J. L.
Muirhead, who is going on his
holidays to Victoria, preparatory
to a transfer to another branch.
J.A.Steedman, of the firm of
Steedman & Cochrane, chartered
accountants, San Francisco, who
is interested in the Washington
property, arrived in Hyder from
Washington, D.C., where he has
been for two years employed on
special work.
Harry Martin, managing director of the well known hardware firm of McLennan & Mc-
Feeley, Vancouver, spent the
week end in town as the guest
of D.W.McLeman, who handles
a complete line of hardware and
mining supplies.
Blackie Irwin, who left several weeks ago with Victor de-
Pessimier for a winter's trap-
ing in the White river section on
the Naas slope, returned to town
suffering with an attack of lh
grippe and asthma. Wm. Kerr
has taken hia place, and as soon
as Mr Irwin recovers he will join
the others in the hills.
BIG OIL TANK FOR
DUNWELL COMPANY
The Dunwell Mines have secured a site on the upper side of
the road about 1000 feet north of
the Stewart dock, for a 250,000-
gallon oil tank which they intend
to erect during the winter. A
crew of men has been put to
work clearing the site. Having
this oil tank will materially lessen the oost of the oil supply necessary to the operation of the
company's power plant at the
mine, by enabling the purchase
of oil in bulk.
The towers for the tramline
from the mine to the mill are all
erected, and the grading completed for the tram head and
bonkers, lumber for which is
now being taken up the hill.
Machinery for the mill was shipped from San Francisco Sept. 27
and will be installed as soon as
it arrives, everyfhing being in
readiness for it.
COWPER VISITS
THE JEMPEROR
Secretary-Treasurer of the
Company Astonished By
Magnitude of Showings
On This Property
J. S. Cow per, secretary-treasurer of the Emperor Mines Ltd.,
arrived from Vancouver Sunday
morning, looked over the property, and left again for the south
Monday night, being shown over
the ground and workings by
Gustav Seiffert, managing director, who has developed the Emperor into a property that is considered favorably by all competent judges who have visited it.
"Although having kept inclose
touch with developments on the
Emperor through reports from
Mr Seiffert," said Mr Cowper to
the News, "and thinking I was
pretty well informed, I was nevertheless astouished by the showings when I saw them face to
face. They exceeded my expectations, and I may say that these
were by no means modest. As
for the camp, and the workmanlike manner in which all the undertakings have been carried on,
I can only say that they should
be compared with other mines of
the west to be appreciated."
Mr Cowper is editor of the
Western Tribune of Vancouver,
and is a persistent and consistent booster for this section, as
well as being an advocate of
clean methods in mine financing.
Captain MacVichie Sick
Captain Duncan MacVichie,
who is heavily interested in the
Big Missouri, came down from
the mine Thursday suffering
from a severe cold, and is now a
patient in the Stewart hospital.
STEWART IS HOME
OF PRIZE GARDENS
Controls the Riverside
E.E.Hall of Winnipeg, brother
ofj. A. Hall, president of the
Bank of Hyder, who is now visiting this district, has purchased
control of the Riverside mine
this week, and was elected president of the company, Mr Hall
is also vice president of the Bank
of Hyder.
Lease on Terminus
George Bacon and Ernest Mus-
tow left today for the Terminus,
where they have taken a lease
on the north drift from the tunnel. Sufficient supplies have
been sent up to the mine to last
all winter, during which time
the partners expect to take out
and ship quite a tonnage of high
grade ore.
Stewart has long been considered as too far north, and having toe bad a climate, to grow
certain fruits and vegetables,
but if anyone will visit Oliver
Smith's market garden and see
his four tons of cabbages and
other as fine garden products as
can be found anywhere, he will
be in for a surprise.
Jas. McKay, a pioneer prospector, this fall harvested some
fine apples from a tree that grew
from a seed in front of his cabin
at the Bear river bridge. H. C.
Bennett grows strawberries 13
to the pound. Householders generally went in for home gardens
this year more than ever before
and many a savory cauliflower
and luscieus marrsw went into
the steaming pot, screaming and
kicking.
F.C.Outland, head of the Outland Silver Bar, left for Seattle
Sunday after superintending the
most successful season's development in the history of the property.

the shareholders that the  trail
work upon the property was all
finished, that a substantial cabin
; was completed, and that a very
j considerable amount of opening
and prospecting work had been
done upon the veins, with results
i extremely satisfactory.
The company has money in
. hand to carry on the work lor
some time, and share applications are constantly coming in.
It was expected that the sale of
shares would be closed down almost immediately, as the company did not intend to offer more
than a very limited number of
shares at the present price of
12* cents.
The officers also informed the
shareholders that well-known
capitalists had taken an option
upon a very large block of the
company's shares. The engineer
representing these capitalists
was on the ground at the same
time that George  A.   Clothier,
be taken up the company would
have ample capital provided to
develop the claims into a mine.
Mr Brown, who was on the
property this summer, and Mr
Pratt, another director of the
company, who has just come
down from the property, addres-
sea the meeting, describing the
ore showings that had been opened up, the assay results obtained
etc., and informed the meeting
that there was no longer any
reasonable doubt that the company had the makings of a real
mine. They stated that according to the surface showing the
property appeared to be one of
the biggest and finest mining
propositions in the province.
The auditor's statement was
duly passed, but as it appeared
that it would likely be necessary
at an early date to provide for
seats on the board for the incoming capital, the meeting decided
to adjourn until Dec. 2, and that
the old directors should carry on
until that time. The directors
stated that they hoped by  that
True Confessions
When I was up in the mountains once I came upon an old
prospector standing outside a
cave. He told me he had just
found a treasure hidden inside.
"What is it" I asked "qaartz?"
"Naw," he whispers, "pints."
Father: "Did you have the car

O the benefits of pure, healthful beer. Not
only in summer, but also in the cooler
lpoiiths its tonic properties are of the greatest
value in the fortifying of the body against the
strain and tension of modern life.
Used regularly with meals pure beer imparts
not only the nourishment of the grains
from which it is made; it assists valuably
in the assimilation of other foods, and with
its vitamin content makes up for the lack
of vitamins from which modern diet so
often suffers.
Pure beer, such as is made for the people of
British Columbia by the Amalgamated Breweries,
is of low alcoholic strength���only 4|%, as called
for by law���only enough to stimulate the bodily
functions and rest the nervous system.
Many qualified physicians prescribe pure
beer as a beverage for nursing mothers,
both for its tonic action and on account
of its richness in malt extractives that so
fit rhe physical needs of nursing mothers.
Every day in the year you may have beer, carefully brewed
by the Amalgamated Brewers, on your table, as a useful
and sestful part of your meals. You may buy it by the
bottle or by the dozen bottles or by the case, at every
Government Store.
Delivery is free to any part
