HIGH RETURNS
FROMSMELTER
First Shipment From New
Vein on the Porter Idaho
Brings Home Check for
More Than $10,000
A nice little check from the
Trail smelter for over $10,000
was received this week by the
Porter Idaho management for
the first 40 tons of ore shipped
this year. The smelter assay returns show that the ore netted
$265 per ton after deducting
freight and treatment charges.
The high-grade mine is keeping
up consistent shipments of 20
tons weekly, and has enough ore
in sight to keep all the pack
horses procurable busy until winter closes the trail.
MARMOTMETALS
TUNNEMN ORE
Angus McLeod, managing director of the Marmot Metals Co.
who came down from the property last week-end, reported that
the tunnel, which is being driven
to explore one of the four parallel veins at depth, cut the ore at a
depth of 60 feet below the surface, and that the ore has an average value ot $20.44 in silver
and zinc, the latter metal predominating. The vein at this
point has a width of eight feet,
and like all veins widens and
narrows, as has been proven by
open cuts made in it where traced on the surface for 500 feet in
elevation up the mountain.
An interesting feature in connection with Marmot Metals during the past month has been unsolicited inquiries from several
operating companies as to whether control of this property can
be purchased. As control of this
company is still in the treasury,
it is altogether possible that the
question of selling control to an
operating company will be among
the items considered at the annual meeting, which will probably be held in November.
Incorporation Mass Meeting
A mass meeting of tax payers
and residents of Stewart has
heen called for 8 p.m., Tuesday,
Oct. 12 in Moose Hall, for the
Purpose of discussing the Village
Incorporation Act. as it affects
Stewart As is well known, the
Board of Trade has been making
a study of thia question for near-
-y a year, and has compiled a
great deal of information on the
subject that should be of great
interest to the entire community.
POPULAR YOUNG
COUPLE MARRIED
St. Marks Church which, since
its erection in 1910. has heen the
scene of so many happy ceremonies, was the setting for one of
the most interesting of them all
when, on Monday evening, the
Rev. A. W. R. Ashley joined in
marriage Edith Margaret Crawford, eldest daughter of Mr and
Mrs W.J.Crawford, and Louis A.
Behnsen. son of C. L. Behnsen,
of Haro street, Vancouver.
Miss Muriel Crawford and
Ross Nicholson were bridesmaid
and groomsman; W. Esselmont
and Max Armour acted as ushers, and J. Crawford and H. P.
Gibson signed the register as
witnesses.
The church was beautifully
decorated with autumn leaves,
potted plants and late flowers,
most of which had been sent
down from the Premier for the
occasion by Mrs Dale# L. Pitt.
Mendelssohn's Wedding March,
played by Mrs Gibson, heralded
the coming of the bride and her
maid of honor.
At the conclusion of the ceremony the choir sang the hymn:
"O, Perfect Love" and during
the signing of the register Mrs
G.C.Andrew sang "Oh, Promise
Me" and the bride and groom
made their exit to the "Wedding March" of Lohengrin.
Miss Crawford, who was given
away by her father, never looked
more charming. Her wedding
dress was of white silk, being
sleeveless with berthe of silk net
havihg on one shoulder a rose of
the silk, with rhinestone centre
backed by a bow of silver ribbon.
The skirt was full and scalloped
with a broad edge of silk net
upon which, one beneath each
scallop, were roses and silver
ribbon. The waist was outlined
with silver leaves, centering on
a rhinestone ornament, from
which fell a cluster of silver ribbons. With the gown were worn
silver slippers. The bride carried a bouquet of pink roses and
maiden-hair fern, and wore the
traditional veil of silk net, with
lace cap and wreath of orange
blossoms.
The bridesmaid's dress was of
orchid crepe de ehine and silk,
being sleeveless, with pointed
bodice and full skirt. She also
wore silver slippers and carried
pink roses and maiden-hair fern.
Mrs W.J.Crawford, mother of
the bride, wore a black satin
dress with high neck and flared
skirt, trimmed with champagne
crepe de chine. The gown was
beautifully embroidered with golden flowers and apliqued apple-
green leaves edged with gold.

this story be left untold.

TEACH CHILDREN
FIRE PREVENTION
This being "Fire Prevention
Week" the school trustees, P. S.
Jack. H. P. Gibson and W. R.
Tooth, accompanied by Constable
Potterton, deputy fire marshal,
visited the school last Wednesday and gave short talks to the
children on fires, the damage
they do, and means of preventing them. L. M. Gordon, school
principal, preceeded the visitors,
explaining the purpose and idea
of the week, and the government
school competition for the best
essay on the subject, for which a
medal will be awarded.

J.F.Bowman, carpenter at the
Big Missouri, died at the mine,
after a short illness, at 8 o'clock
on the morning of Oct. 1. He
was 58 years old and his mother,
his only known living relative,
resides at Harwood, Oregon, to
where the remains will be sent.
A coroner's jury, empanelled
by Coroner Dr. H. A. Whillans
of Stewart, brought in a verdict
of poisoning from an over-dose
of quinine, taken while in a
weakened condition, due to a
heavy cold. Dr. Carson, of Premier, was in attendance, but
when summoned the patient was
beyond human assistance.
PROSPECTING
SILVER BELL
E.G. Riebe, Seattle mining engineer, who has charge of the
Silver Bell in this district, and is
also developing a gold property
near Juneau, Alaska, has coined
a new phrase. When asked why
he did not get busy and open up
the upper showings of the Silver
Bell, he said it was his ambition
to get away from the "cost of
high mining."
In common with many properties of this camp, the first ore
discoveries on the Silver Bell
were made above timber line,
where the overburden is light
and prospectiag easy. Operating
costs at such elevations are heavy
on account of excessive transportation charges. This fall Mr
Riebe had John Haahti in charge
of a crew for several weeks tracing out the ore showings that
trended down the hill, and prospecting in order to establish a
permanent working location as
near tidewater as it is possible
to find ore. The work has been
successful in tracing at least one
of the veins down to within 800
feet of Portland Canal.
The Silver Bell adjoins the Silverado on the south, and is owned by a Seattle company, of
which Leroy M. Backus, son ef
the president of the National
Bank of Commerce in Seattle, is
president. The property carries
a series of veins, with seme spectacular ore such as is found on
the Silverado, but it is the contention of Mr Riebe that large
bodies of commercial ore, even
though medium or low grade,
make the mines, rather than the
small shoots of high-grade, and
for the three years he has been
connected with the Silver Bell he
has been studying geological conditions and working out the vein
systems with a view to permanent work on a large scale.
Starting at an elevation of
3700 feet the veins have been
stripped and crosscut on the surface along and down the mountainside, and at 800-foet elevation Mr Riebe says he will establish a camp next spring and start
real mining on a commercial
scale. Machinery will be installed and three veins that can
be reached from this elevation
will be thoroughly developed.
PROGRESS ON
SILVER CREST
In response to a request for
authentic information as to developments on the Silver Crest,
the News has received the following information:
A contract was let to sink a
shaft alongside the high grade
vein from which a trial shipment
running $175 per ton was sent to
the Selby smelter last fell. At
25 feet depth in this shaft it was
found that the vein was flattened out with a dip of about 10 degrees to the west. A sample
across four feet at the bottom of
the shaft went $5.60 in gold and
61.4 ez. silver, a total of $43.67
per ton.
A vein carrying good values in
gold and silver on the Bella Coola claim of the Silver Tip group
has been traced into the September claim of the Silver Crest
group and exposed in several
open cuts. A sample from the
bottom of one of these cuts
across six feet assayed $62.40,
$4 of which is in gold yalues. A
crosscut is now being driven from
a point 90 feet from the portal
of our lower tunnel ttrthe west
for the purpose of tapping this
vein at depth, the estimated distance being 150 feet, for which
a contract has been let.
This crosscut had not been
driven very far before a two-foot
vein which did not show on the
surfrce was encountered and
passed through, This assayed,
across the two feet, $86.68 per
ton, $4.40 of which is in gold.
We have also done considerable
prospecting on the northern part
ef our property, which has resulted iu uncovering several good
quarts ledges carrying fair gold
values which have been traced
fer several hundred feet on the
Hessite, Stephanite and Native
claims.
The directors are very well
pleased with the results being
obtained, and work will be carried on throughout the winter,
contracts being let for additional
tunnel work after the present
150 feet of crosscut has been
finished.

stead of by internal shafts and drifts. At
present, however, the great expense of a
deep shaft to reach even the present level
of working, at 6700 ft., apparently stands
in the way of its being attempted, although if the future of the "mine should
be in any way comparable to the past, it
would still pay to do so. But the present
problem of the management seems to be
to keep down working costs so as to leave
a net operating profit. Labor is scarce

STEWART,  B. C.
General information   of the
PORTLAND CANAL
DISTRICT
supplied on application to the
Secretary, Stewart, B. C.
Board meets 1st and 3d Tuesdays of each month,
Board Rooms
Down in Peru, where L Jessen
has been for the past six months
they start operations at an elevation that up here is considered
just about the limit for successful mining, and which is in faet
about the height of the mountains in this district.
Mr Jessen is managing director of Boyles Bros. Limited, who
have done nearly all the diamond
drilling in   the  Portland  Canal
section.   Originally an American
company, with headquarters  in
Spokane,    Boyles   Bros.,   after
more than a quarter  century of
; "looking into the earth" throug-
out the northwest, has been ac-
! quired by Messrs Jessen,   Jack-
I son and Sweeney,   and is  now
strictly a Canadian company with
headquaiUjrs in Vancouver.   Mr
Jessen's mission in Peru was in
connection with the   company's
operations on the property ofthe
Northern Peru Mining & Smelt-
ing Co., a subsidiary of the Anv
I erican Smelting & Refining  Co.,
i more familiarly known as  "The
Guggenheims,"       Incidentally,
Beyles Bros, have extended their
field into Newfoundland, where
Denny Jackson is now in charge
I of extensive drilling operations.
Concerning Peru,  Mr  Jessen
says the seaport town is Trujillo,
frem  whence a   narrow-guage
railway 20 miles  in   length  extends to  the  company's  headquarters, at an elevation of 4500
feet above sea  level.     Here is
located the concentrating  mill,
and the   lower  terminal  of  an
aerial tram, built in   three  sec
tions for a distance of 35 miles
up to an elevation of 13,500 feet,
with plans made for a further
extension up te 14,500 feet ele-
v at ion, where one of the wonders of the world for a situation
such as this, a coal mine, exists.
At this altitude, which cannot
be reached by many employes of
the company, one may look south
at the real mountains, which are
snow clad and attain an elevation of 22,000 feet. Around the
mine workings the country is
mostly rolling and grassy, furnishing sustenance for flocks of
sheep and llamas. It is easy for
a stranger to lose his way, as
the mountainsides are seamed
with old trails, some of them
worn to a depth of 12 feet. A
fascinating feature of the section is the old Inca roads and irrigation systems. The sourees
of water which supplied the latter have entirely disappeared.
Many of the old employes of
the Premier Gold Mining Co. are
with the Peru concern. Tom
Graham, who built the Premier
tram, is there, also his son Wylie
who was the flrst tram superintendent here. Wayne Graham
helped in the Peru construction,
but has come north again. Preston Locke is general manager of
the Peru works, and Dick Lee,
J.A.Mitchell and Capt. Means
are among the oldtime Portland
Canal residents employed there.
Mr Jessen says the operators
there work under a terrific expense, and receive no governmental aid in the way of roads
and trails.
During his six months absence
Mr Jessen looked over a great
many mining camps, and says
the Portland Canal district looks
better to him than ever.
The  Raven
A raven comes each morn at
Ave, and sits upon my shack.
I'd like to skin that bird alive,
and break his cussed back. His
voice was ruined long ago���he
needs to have it filed���and when
he croaks his notes of woe, he
darn near drives me wild.
I'd rather have some drunken
stiff on my verandah sing, and
now and then my wash-tub
biff, and dance a jigg, by
jing! A sow, caught in a barb-
wire fence, has sweeter voice,
by far; some day I'll send that
raven hence, to pearly gates ajar.
