FINE RESULTS
ON HIGH GRADE
Two Great Veins Being
Developed on Claims in
Marmot Section Staked
Late Last Fall
Startling results are being obtained on the High Grade group,
owned by W. R. Harner and Homer Ficklin and situated at the
head of Magee Pass, in the Marmot river section. Mr Harner
and H. Scovil made a trip to the
property this week and brought
out 90 pounds of samples that
look even better than those secured about a week ago, which
gave assay results as follows:
No. 1 vein, average of 8 feet:
Gold, 0.42 oz., $8.40: silver, 94.2
oz., $61.20; lead, 19 per cent,
��30.40; zinc, 17.1 percent, $20.40
total value per ton. $119.40.
No. 2 vein, average of 7 feet:
Gold, 3.4 oz., $68.00; silver, 10
oz., $6.50; total value per tbn,
$74.50. Work done on No. 2
vein since the above assays were
made, shows that just below
the leached capping of the vein
the lead and zinc sulphides are
coming in, and the ore of both
veins is practically identical at a
few feet of depth.
Under the supervision nt Homer Ficklin, nine open cuts have
been made across No. 1 vein at
distances of from 100 to 110 feet
apart, showing the vein to vary
from six to 15 feet in width with
the same character of ore in all
the cuts. The vein has been
traced for another 900 feet and
crosscut by an open trench at
this point.
On No. 2 vein six open cuts
show a width of vein from seven
to 15 feet. This vein has been
traced for a distance of 2400
feet. The veins lie parallel and
about 500 feet apart, and the topography is such that both can
be developed by tunnels.
The High Grade group consists
of seven claims, is only seven
"������les from tidewater at the
mouth of the Marmot, and is
ideally situated for an aerial
tram. A good pack trail was
built to the property this summer by the owners, and two pack
trains ef 11 and 14 horses respectively delivered the camp equipment and mining supplies about
three weeks ago.
The property was discovered
by Homer Ficklin on the 24th of
September last year, being sent

Basketball Games
The Premier Eskimos won a
rough-and-tumble game of basketball last Friday night at the
mine from the Stewart team by
a score of 18 to 16. This is the
first game of the series lost by
the home team. Tonight there
will be a game in the Opera
House between Stewart and the
Premier Maroons. The game
will commence at 8:30 and be
followed by a dance.
Registration of Voters Aug. 9th
Royal Proclamation ordering
the issuance of writs for a general election is contained in a
supplement of the Canada Gazette just published. The writs
are issued July 20 and are returnable Nov. 2. The same issue of
the Gazette formally calls Parliament to assemble in Ottawa
Nov. 17. The extra session probably would end before Christmas. Registration of voters
throughout Canada, it is announced, will commence on August 9
and extend to and include August 14. In rural districts the
first lists must be completed by
August 30. Both urban and rural lists are subject to revision.
SINKING SHAFT
ON SILVER CREST
C.M.Oliver, of C. M. Oliver &
Co., Vancouver brokers, has
spent a week in camp, with Mrs
Oliver, their headquarters being
the Premier mine. Mr Oliver
visited all the leading mining
properties of the Salmon river
section, including the Silver
Crest, in which he is heavily interested.
While here he let a contract to
Bert Olson, a local hard rock
miner, to sink a shaft on the
Silver Crest, starting in an open
cut wher�� an assay of 176 ounces
in silver across five feet was obtained. The shaft will follow
the foot wail down, with a crosscut to the hanging wall every
ten feet. During the winter a
considerable amount of tunnel
work was done, and when the
shaft has reached a certain
depth it is the intention to drive
a crosscut to it from the tunnel.
While the shaft is being sunk
some surface work will be done
to open up several of the Silver
Tip veins which have been traced up to a short distance from
the Silver Crest lines and strike
into this group.
Of great importance to the
Silver Crest operations is the recent entrance into the company
of strong financial interests of
Spokane, placing the company
on a firm financial footing and
assuring funds for carrying out
a thorough exploration of the
property.
PROGRESS ON
ROAD WORK
The heavy rock work on the
lower end of the Marmot river
road has been completed and the
gang there is now extending the
road up the valley, the forks of
the river being the objective.
The pot table compressor has
been brought over to Stewart to
be used in connection with taking off a number of rock points
and widening the road between
Stewart and Hyder. It is reported that some $11,000 is available for this work.
Good progress is being made
with the new cut-off from Bitter
creek bridge to Bear lake, it being nearly completed, shortening the main Bear river road approximately a mile between the
town and the lake. Next season
it is expected that the Muddy
Gulch problem will be solved.
Conservative Meeting
The local Conservative Association will hold a meeting, at
which all Conservatives are requested to be present, at 8 p.m.,
Wednesday, Aug. 4, upstairs in
the Beaman block.
OPTIMISM WAS
THEJCEY NOTE
Representative Gathering
Of Business Men at Complimentary Dinner Speak
Of Stewart's Future
Punctuated with optimism and
useful suggestions, several very
interesting speeches were given
at the dinner held last Monday
evening under the auspices of
the Board of Trade, in honor of
W.F.Irwin, of the financial firm
of R. P. Clark & Co., of Vancouver and Victoria, who has just
completed a week's sojourn in
the district looking over mining
properties and investigating possibilities.
Introduced by W, C. Cameron,
president of the Board, Mr Irwin
explained that he was no stranger to the district, having visited here in the boom dayi of 1910
but on coming back this time he
was greatly impressed with the
much improved solidity of the
camp, as proof of which were
the shipping mines that have
been developed, with others
coming along very fast indeed,
and from what he had seen, the
district has a tremendous future
as a great producer of metals.
What is needed however is more
capital for development, and
when the confidence of the investing public in this province is
well established, there is little
doubt that a large amount of
capital will be forthcoming.
He emphasized the fact that
there exists in B.C. all the capital that is required for the making of more than one mine. What
is needed however is the obtaining for B.C. capital one or two
winners, then this province
would not be under the handicap
of the past of having to go to
Montreal, Toronto, London and
New York for development
money.
With the great Groundhog
coalfields only 90 miles behind
Stewart, on the shortest possible
rail route for the vast Peace
River wheat belt to the coast, in
his opinion it would be only a
matter of a few years when
Stewart will become one of the
most progressive cities on the
coast.
"A vast empire, filled with untold natural resources, lies immediately at your back door,"
he said, "that every effort should
be at once made to develop.
However, this will take time and
perseverence. You have here a
wonderful district, with wonderful possibilities, and what I wonld
suggest is that every resident,
when talking or writing to people from other parts, tell them

ALL THINGS ARE SPECULATIVE
(Southwest Mining News Service)
All things are speculative, most of all
life itself.   There is nothing certain, except that we are on our way, we know not
whither.    Today, tomorrow, next week,
the curtain may drop for us upon the last
act. It is so in all lines of business, no
matter what may be said by the banker or
the investment banker.   The bonds they
offer with such glib assurance were originally based upon flimsy speculative values
and tomorrow the values placed behind
them may evaporate and leave but highly
ornamental certificates behind.
In an industrial enterprise speculation
comes last and net first; in a mining project speculation comes first, not last. Any
industrial project demands housing, raw
material, machinery  and  selling  force.
Those can be easily acquired, if the capital be forthcoming, but there can never
be any assurance that the market will absorb the article produced.   On the other
hand, if a mine develops pay ore there is
never any question  about   the  market.
Metals always have a price and, after deductions have been made for transportation and marketing, the balance comes to
a resting place in the hands of the producer speedily and without fail.
More failures are recorded among industrial projects of all kinds than in mining enterprises. Given a fair surface
showing, honest management and ample
capital, there is far greater ehance of big
recovery from mines than from any other

IT WOULD NOT BE GOOD
A report from Montreal published in
the news columns last week is to the effect
that negotiations are under way for the
purchase, by the C.N.R. system, of the
Union Steamships Co.
In the interests of shippers all along
the coast of British Columbia, it is to be
hoped this deal does not materialize. Competition would be throttled, and the coast
towns be at the mercy of a service that is
so erratic, with continually changing schedules, that, as recently said by a prominent business man of Prince Rupert, "you
never know where to put your finger on
them, but the Union boats can be depended upon, year in and year out, whether
business is good or not, always on the
same day."
The Canadian Government is ostensibly opposed to trusts. There are laws
on the statute books forbidding combinations of common carriers in restraint of
trade. Ts the Government now trying to
form a steamship trust of its own so that
it can dictate fares and shipping rates,
and provide a service to suit the whims
of the various officials in charge without respect
to the needs and wishes of the communities
they serve?

A report by Dr.  J. F. Walker
on the geology and mineral   deposits of the Windermere district
British Columbia, has been   published by the Geological Survey.
The area is underlain to  a great
extent  by  sedimentary  formations of  the   Precambrian   age.
Correlations are  made between
these    formations   and  similar
Precambrian  sediments farther
south described by Dr, S.J. Schofield  and   Dr. R. A. Daly.   The
age relationships of the  Palae-
zoic formations exposed in   the
eastern part of the area are also
matters of careful consideration.
The most  important mineral
deposits are lead-silver and lead-
silver-zinc deposits.     They   are
of  the   fissure    and    bed-vein
type and are generally associated
with minor flexures on the limbs
of large folds.   The leading properties are described.   Copies of
the report may be had On application to the Director, Geological

The recent development work
on the Marsh mine at Burke,
Idaho, being so expensive and
proving disappointing, the trustees of the company advocated
the suspension of work   for   the
  tj"-e being or until arrangements
could be effected for the drilling
of the property.
With the idea of reinforcing
the stockholders' investment it
wus believed that the best interests of the company could be
served by concentrating its energies on a property such as the
Cassiar Crown, one of the most
promising properties in the Omineca district.
During the month of June negotiations were entered into by
F, Cushing Moore, vice president
and engineer of the Marsh company, whereby the company
should take oyer control of the
stock of the Cassiar Crown. This
plan was unanimously supported
by the stockholders. The deal is
directly between the Marsh company and the Cassiar Crown
company without commission or
profit to anybody, and any money paid by the Marsh company
toward the purchase will go into
the old shaft. Future work in
the No. 2 will be in an oie body
at greater depth and 100 feet
distant from the north face of
the drift at the No. 1 tunnel level, where an ore shoot has been
proven for a length of 187 feet,
with both faces in ore. The shoot
is 5i feet wide, and assays 6
ounces in silver, 21.62 per cent
copper and 13.4 per cent zinc.
J. V.Pohlman, secretary of the
company, is also with the party,
and will remain until the latter
end of next week, when Mr Harris will prepare camps and quarters for the fall and winter. -

Mining of hi-rh grade ore at
the LaRose mine has now commenced in earnest. An ore chute
and manway has been constructed, which will eliminate all shovel work. Stoping of the high
grade ore vein was commenced
near the bottom of the raise. On
Wednesday the first shipment of
ore comprising about a ton, was
brought down the hill to the
Dolly Varden railway track and
from now on a steady stream will

The feature of this week's
market was the rapid rise in
Dunwell. This advance had been
predicted by all the brokers and
the two dollar mark in Dunwell
is expected by the present week
end. It appears as if fhe ires-
en t price of Dunwell will be the
last low offering, as with the
completion of the mill and tramway in sight, Dunwell will be in
the dividend paying class early
aext year.
The ore body on the Marmot
Metals property that is daily being opened up, and the exceptionally good reports that are
being brought into town by visitors to the mine, are having
their effect on the market, and
the few cheap blocks of stock
are quickly being absorbed. It
is expected in the very near future that Marmot Metals will be
one of the most active stocks on
the southern markets.
B.C.Silver slackened off a few
points. But very little of this
stock is available.
After the last flurry in Indian
the stock has remained very in-
active, and is expected to until
some new deal comes up.

of it, and keep on tailing them
of it, and in time the world will
recognize its future, and ample
money will be available for development."
George Clothier, government
resident mining engineer, was
the next speaker. Like Mr Irwin, he could speak intimately
of the past and present. In the
course of his remarks he said:
"The district today is without
doubt more firmly established
than ever, and its future assured."
II.J.Schramli, an investor who
has been hero for a week or more
investigating certain operations
in which he invested, endorsed
the opinions of the other speakers. "Even though I sunk a
considerable sum of money in a
certain proposition, I am glad I
came to Stewart, for I am more
than ever convinced of its future, and the possibilities here
for capital, and in spite ef my
loss I can say that my confidence
is such that I intend to invest
more money." One thing that
should be done, in his opinion,
was to eliminate the unscrupulous promoter such as he invested with. Give capital good organization, efficient and honest
management, and re-establish
the confidence of the investor.
and there will be ample capital
for development.
Several others also spoke, all
being agreed as to the future.
H.D. Rochfort put into plain
language what the others had
hinted at and that was "boost
the honest endeavors to make
mines, and do not knock except
when it appears that an operation is not honest in its endeavor.   Get behind the Minister of

that in his opinion Stewart, as a

outlook is very bright for the

R.G.Mellin M.E., manager of
several operations in the district,
and W.D.Brown of the Dalhousie, both endorsed the sentiments and added somewhat to
the notes of optimism that had
been struck.
