TROY MINES
TO BE ACTIVE
Energetic Development
Campaign for This Year
Will Be Started Early In
The Season
Niel McDonald, original locator of the Troy group of mineral
claims, and Chas. Lake, his partner, returned Sunday night from
a trip to the property and report
the camp and supplies in perfect
condition, which was to be expected, as the camp was built to
withstand the winters, having
concrete floor and corrugated iron
roof. The snow is going fast,
and the season is at least a month
earlier than usual, which will
give the company that much advantage in starting work.
Mr McDonald says that practically all the supplies needed for
some time to come are already
at the camp with the exception
of powder, and that development
will commence just as soon as
a pack train can be put through
io the ground. The program for
the season will include from 2000
to 3000 feet of diamond drilling,
for which a contract has been
let to Boyles Bros., who. have a
drilling outfit now at the Forty
Nine, two miles south of the
Troy. The drilling operations
will be centered on three veins,
known as the Footwall, Contact
and No. 2 veins, on which considerable prospecting and development work has been done in
the past.
The crosscut tunnel from Mineral Gulch to tap the No. 2 vein,
which is already in 50 feet, will
be continued and should reach
its objective in another 50 feet.
It will then probably be continued another 250 feet to tap the
No. 3 vein. It is also the intention to start a long main working tunnel on the Butte claim,
near the mine camp, to serve
practically the whole vein system for the extraction of ore.
With this tunnel opened up work
can be continued to advantage
next winter, should the management deem this advisable.
PROGRAM LAID
FOR HYDER LEAD
R. G. Mellin, M. E., in charge
of operations for the Hyder Lead
Co., formerly the Texas Creek
Comstock Co., has returned from
Vancouver island, where he
spent the winter, and will inaugurate an energetic campaign of
development as soon as the property is sufficiently free from
snow. The property is on the
Alaskan side near the head of
the west fork of Texas creek,
which flows into Salmon river
at Nine-mile.
Preliminary to the commencement of mining operations about
a mile of horse trail will be constructed, connecting with the
government trail, and camp buildings built at the property. Surface prospecting has disclosed a
number of veins, and on one of
these an adit tunnel will be run
for the purpose of developing an
exceptionally strong shoot of galena ore that crops for a long
distance on the surfaco.
Rev. A.W.R. Ashley returned
Monday night from a visit of
two weeks in Rupert.
Oren F. Hill, postmaster at
Hyder, returned yesterday from
a business trip to Seattle.

McLEMAN MAKES JIG
FOR DEMONSTRATION
Stewart's progressive hardware merchant, D.W. McLeman,
has this week constructed a jig
���n the rear <��f his store, for the
Purpose of exhibition in connection with his business. This is
the first of its kind constructed
in this district and will doubtless
to of great interest to mining
men, being one of the simplest
nnd cheapest forms of concentrating lead-zinc ores.
TUNNELING
ONJIG MIKE
Mike Milos and E.T.Williams
came up early this week from
the Big Mike group, where they
are driving an adit tunnel on the
free gold and galena vein discovered last fall near the beach and
partially opened by a short crosscut tunnel during the winter.
The adit is now in 42 feet, following the footwall, and a crosscut at the face shows four feet
of a vein, with about ten inches
of high-grade on the hanging
wall, carrying some free gold
and a large amount of galena.
When this tunnel is extended
about 100 feet it will have a depth
below the upper showing of more
than 100 feet.
The showing is most encouraging and the owners, Mike Milos,
J. D.McDonald and Harry Wilk-
enson, though far from being in
the capitalistic class, are expending every effort to make a
mine of it.

friends are pleased to know that
he expects to stay in the district
and all wish him the best of luck.
BURNS PROVIDES
MODERN MARKET
P. Burns & Co. have this week
completed what can be safely
said to be one of the finest meat
markets in the north, in their
new building on 5th street. The
shop has a marble top counter
and all nickle fittings, while the
cold storage or ammonia plant is
of the very latest type, the company engineers being sent from
Vancouver for its construction.
Mr Murphy, the local manager,
expects to move in during the
week end.
FINE IMPROMPTU
ENTERTAINMENT
One of the most enjoyable entertainments seen for some time
in Stewart was given last Saturday evening by the United Services Club. Taking advantage
of the presence of Walter McRaye, the noted lecturer, the
club organized a short impromptu entertainment for which no
charge was made.
W. S. Orr had painted a front
line trench scene on the back of
the stage, and as the audience
congregated a game of "house"
and other army games were go-
ihg, on the floor in front of the
stage. The program opened by
the audience singing a number
of oldtime army songs, after
which an amusing scene was
staged, a peker game in the
trenches, broken up by a shell
coming over and bursting close
by. Buring the scatteration for
cover, one of the players stole
the money. Billy Orr then entered, singing "Where Did That
One Go To, 'erbert."
S.G.Lawrence did a very good
turn, depicting a stretcher bearer in a tight corner. Solos were
rendered by Mrs G. C. Andrew
and Frank Bowler, and Walter
McRaye entertained for half an
hour with comic and other selections frem Canadian poets and
authors. The most enjoyable
affair closed with the singing of
patriotic songs by the audience.
C.H.Sundmacher, Hyder's first
attorney and recently U.S. Commissioner in McCarthy, Alaska,
has gone south to the new   gold
strike on the Mojave desert.
Miss E.W.Maxwell, R.N.  and
chiropractor, who spent the summer of 1924 in Stewart, returned
yesterday from Vancouver and
intends practicing her profession
here.
Mr and Mrs L. E. Bigham and
young son have returned from a
prolonged visit in California, and
"Bing"isnow doing the chef
act in the new Hotel Stewart
Grill.
Part of a carload of pipe and
rails from the Rocher d'Boule
mine at Hazelton arrived on the
Prince George yesterday for the
Dunwell. The balance of the
shipment was left in Rupert for
the Prince Charles to bring next
Sunday.
At the Wednesday evening
meeting of the Native Sons of
Canada it was decided as appropriate that the local Assembly
should take charge of the Dominion Day celebration. A committee was appointed to draw up
and put into effect a program.
One of the teams engaged in
freighting for the Dunwell put
on an impromptu circus this
morning, but too early to secure
a large audience, though the few
witnesses were enthusiastic over
the performance. Mapping out
a program for themselves, the
team tore down Fifth street Until diverted by an auto driver onto the walk in front of Gibson's,
and followed the pedestrians'
promenade as far as Newell's,
where the barber pole brought
them to a jarring halt.

Fire Threatens
Our National
Heritage
Carelessness Destroys
3,000,000 acres annually
of Canadian Forest
Loss of standing timber by fire continues tc be appalling. On the average,
over 3,500 million board feet are destroyed
annually. The forests of Canada are
being depleted at a rate they cannot possibly withstand; more than half of this
depletion is due to fire, insects and decay.
The future of the forest industry is just
as dependent on the seedling trees and
young growth as the pulp and paper and
lumber mills, and industry generally, are
dependent on mature timber���both must
be saved from the ravages of fire.
In addition to the shelter afforded by the
forest to the farmer and his stock, settlers in
forested regions are vitally dependent on the
woods for winter employment. Care with fire
in land-clearing operations is all-essential���
burned timber pays no wages.
Canada has the finest inland fishing in the
world, but these splendid food and game fish
require clean, cold water in the streams to ensure
prolific reproduction. Forest fires are inimical
to fish life.
Game animals attract foreign tourists and
induce Canadians to seek pleasure, health and
adventure in the great outdoors. These animals
are distinctly a forest resource���utterly dependent on it for protection and food. Forest fires
are most destructive of such wild life.
Ninety per cent of the forest fires are caused
"by carelessness. Are you doing your part to prevent this wanton waste and destruction?

(Too late for last week)
Richard Inkster returned this
week after spending the  winter
with his brother and  sister in
Winnipeg.
The mill basketball team defeated the mechanics in a very
close overtime game on Tuesday
night. The teams were evenly
matched, as the 16���14 score indicates. Two games remain to be
played in the final play-off between the mill and office.
The Camp 4 basketball players
were entertained at bridge by
Mrs A.H.Mellish Thursday evening.
Mrs J. Pelletier and family
returned from Prince Rupert
very much improved in health.
Ross Nicholson, the speedy
little basketball player and late
captain of the Mine team, has
accepted a position on the staff
and will be stationed at the dock.
D. Bain is promoted and will
be in charge of the warehouse
records.
H. L. McKinley, warehouse superintendent, left this week for
Vancouver, where he will join
with Mrs McKinley and family
on a vacation.
Joe Prout is on a holiday in
the south. He plans to have a
week of real fishing.
George Gilchrist and Charlie
Disney, of the engineering staff,
went out for a few days' surveying on the Cantu group. They
not reporting in the allotted time
worried Mr Pitt and a search
party was started out. However, the lost ones returned the
same morning, feeling none the
worse for their five days' work
in the rain.
J. C. Murray, postmaster, has
transferred his allegiance from
the warehouse to Killas & Co. 's
store, of which he will be manager.

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston ft Co)
Dunwell stock during the week
showed marked activity, all
cheap offerings being readily absorbed, and the price steadily
advanced. Dunwell at present
market price is considered ont
of the outstandidg mining investments of the present time.
The opening of the Marmot
Metals property brought this
stock into heavy local demand,
and the present low level of this
stoek is not expected to last long.
Angus McLeod, who spent two
days on the property during the
week, reports very favorably on
the ground. His report is covered elsewhere in this paper.
Indian continued in heavy demand and lt appears that most
of the heavy buying is from people interested in the Premier
mine. This stock is looked upon
to become very active in the near
future.
National Silver showed marked
activity and the priee rost steadily under heavy demand on the
s juthern markets.
It appears by the large amount
of Independence changing hands
that some pronounced activity
can be expected in this stock in
the near future, and the remarkably low price of this stoek offers every chance of a rapid enhancement in price.
Porter Idaho remained inactive, with few transactions recorded.
L&L Glacier reached new low
levels and was slightly hid for.
