Brady Wins Over Stork
In Skeena Riding
PLEASED WITH
CHIEF METALS
Prince Rupert, Sept.16.���The
election returns to date give the
following results: Liberals, 119;
Liberal Progressives, 11; Conservatives, 91; Progressives. 8;
United Farmers, 11; Labor, 2;
Independent, 2. Mr King will
have 129 members pledged to
his support, therefore the resignation of the Meighan Government is expected at the earliest
possible date.
J. C. Brady, Coaservative, is
undoubtedly electrd in Skeena
riding. With a number of small
polls to hear from, Mr Brady is
today leading by something like
250. Later returns cannot make
much change.
Highly pleased with their visit

GREAT FIND ON
OUTLAND SILVER
BIG SHOWINGS
ON DALHOUSIE
Development work on the Dalhousie group this summer has
disclosed the presence of three
distinct ore deposits, all differing in character, but each worthy    of   extensive  exploration.
W.A.Pratt of Vancouver, who is! party of heavy shareholders left
heavily interested in the property and has spent most of the
summer there, has brought in a
display of samples from the var-
ious veins.

Stewart, with both sides working hard to round up the votes.

votes was cast, the same number

WILL PREMIER
TAKE TORIC?
Louis Reynolds, well known
oldtimer of Stewart and Alice
Arm, arrived from the latter
camp Monday night. He says
there is a belief there that the
Premier Gold Mining Co. are
about to take over the development of the Toric mine. Bert F.
Smith, superintendent of the
Premier, recently examined the
Toric, and on his suggestion some
shots were put in that resulted
in disclosing the richest ore ever
discovered on that property, Mr
Smith took 900 pounds of this
ore out with him. Mr Reynolds
says he was familiar with the
Dolly Varden mine in its palmiest
days, and that no ore ever produced by that famous property
could excell that found in the
Toric, in the quantity of native
silver contained.
The Norco took out 41 tons of
Riverside concenrrates.

Before starting to mine, a good
trail was built from the foot of
the mountain to the property,
and a log camp constructed at an
elevation of 2200 feet. This
work consumed considerable time
but is of a permanent nature and
an asset for the future.
SUCH IS LIFE
IN   STEWART
"Rap-rap-rap" resounded on
the cabin wall.
"Darn that woodpecker" said
the toiler to himself. He had
been lying awake for five minutes trying to make up his mind
to get up and light a fire.
"Rap-rap-rap."
The Rib awoke with a start.
"Who's there?" she demanded
"Rap rap-rap."
"Who is it?"
"Rap-rap-rap."
"If you wont tell who you are
and what you want, you can just
keep on knocking."
So the woodpecker kept on
knocking.

would be no question about providing funds to place the property on a productive basis.
Emil Davis, manager of the
property, reports that the tunnel
is now in 185 feet, following a
vein that varies from four to six
feet in width and carries values
from a few dollars up to $65 per
ton. The program laid out for
next year includes the construction of a power plant and the installation of a compressor and
machine drills.
RECONNOITER1NG
TELEGRAPH TRAIL
The reeonnaisance party for a
route for a trail from Stewart to
Telegraph Creek, left last week
consisting of Tom McLean
in charge, with Tim Williams
and Alex Mclnnes, both men
who know the back country well,
having prospected and trapped
in it for years. The party will
first proceed to Meziadin lake,
from which point they will explore the country oyer to Bowser
lake for a better route than now
exists. From Bowser lake they
will try and locate the best route
through to a point somewhere
near the 9th cabin on the Telegraph trail.
Great satisfaction at this reeonnaisance being made is felt
locally.   For  years  the
C.F.Hibbard, a prominent fur
man of Seattle, who has made a
great deal of money in mining,
is heavily interested in the Outland Silver Bar, and upon receipt
of the news of this recent strike
came up to see it. Last fall,
when this vein was unknown,
and before the present season's
work bad greatly improved the
ore showings on the veins previously located, Mr Hibbard declared himself as determined to
"go the limit" on this property.
"I seem to have a faculty for
picking winners," he said, "and
am satisfied that this is another
one."
Pat McBride, known all over
the northwest as a successful
prospector and a good judge of
mineral properties, says the new
vein on the Outland Silver Bar
is the "biggest thing" he has
seen in the country.
SEATTLE CO.
ONJARMOT
Thos. Campbell, well known
mining man, who is heavily in-
terested in the Marmot river section, returned from the south
Monday night after an absence
of more than a year, and will engage in active development on a
group of Marmot river claims
for a Seattle company. He will
first examine the work dene during the summer on the various
claims of the group, and then
decide upon his program, which
is already determined to the extent of putting on a crew to
work until the snow drives them
off the hill. The result of this
will to an extent determine the
character and location of the development to be started next
spring, for which the company
have already provided funds.
However, should he be able to
open up shipping ore in a spot
from which the ore can be safely
moved during the winter season,
work will continue throughout
the winter.
Farewell Party
Many Stewart people spent a
very enjoyable evening at the
home of Mr and Mrs S. Smith.
The event was a farewell party
to Geo. Rowland, who expects to
leave Stewart next Sunday. It
was a lively affair from the
start, games and dancing occu-
pyingimost of the evening. Many
regrets were expressed at the
loss of one who has become so
much a necessary part of the
community life.
the Stewart Board of Trade, and
residents here as well as Telegraph Creek, have been trying
to get this trail, which will make
accessible a large, important
country, It is hoped that next
year construction of the trail
News, I will be undertaken.
BIG TIME AT
HICK DANCE
The Hick Hard Times Dance
given last evening by the Stewart Basketball Club was a huge
success. The club's splendid
five-piece orchestra supplied the
music for the crowded floor of
dancers, and kept up the enjoyment until the wee sma' hours.
The supper tables were placed
down the center ot the floor, on
which a supper, served by the
girl members of the club, of
baked beans, with a keg of cider
in a corner.
Original and comic costumes
were the feature of the event,
Ross Nicholson being the hit of
the evening, dressed as a farmer
shiek. (Some say it came natural to him.) A number of prizes were awarded, Jas. Morice
getting 1st for gentlemen, as a
chicken inspector, (for which position it is stated he is well qualified.) Miss Thelma Burleigh
of Hyder won first prize for ladies' costume, being dressed as
a hard times cow girl. The first
prize in the lucky number dance
was won by Margaret Jancowski
and Bernie McDonald, and the
second by Bonnie Campbell and
Johnny Donahue. Three prizes
were awarded in the next lucky
number dance: 1st by Violet
Watson and E.R.Stivers; 2nd by
Mrs Blue and Mr Inkman and 3d
by Miss Mutas and an officer of
the S.S. Mogul.
The affair was declared by all
to be one of the best, and great
SITUATION ON
THEDUNWELL
Managing Director Tells of
Plan to Raise $70,000.00
And Reasons for New
Stock Issue
R.M.Stewart, managing director of the Dunwell mines, in a
statement recently given to the
Victoria press, said that any little excitement concerning the
Dunwell can only proceed from
a lack of knowledge of the exact
situation of the company's affairs
caused through wild reports and
rumors.
Mr Stewart explained that in
carrying out the plan of development, which included the erection of an up-to-date mill, power
plant and tram line, provision is
being made for blocking out ore
bodies in the mine so that, once
work is started, there will be no
let-up from lack of ore supply.
This makes it necessary, in the
opinion of the directors, to have
an additional $70,000, or ten percent of the present capitalization.
The proposition for the absorption of this amount is to
offer this to the present shareholders on easy terms, pro rata
to the holdings they now have.
This matter, the statement asserts, and the whole situation,
will be laid before a meeting of
the shareholders at the earliest
opportunity.
The development account that
has absorbed the surplus capital
really constitutes an investment
in the mine. It has been carried
out under the instructions of
Matthew Little, engineer in
charge, and has been done to ensure a continuous supply of 100
tons of ore per day for the mill,
the building of which has been
completed and machintry ordered, the delivery and installation
of which are now being awaited.
Geological Party Leaves
Having finished their work for
this season the geological survey
party headed by Doctor Hanson
left for the south Saturday. Dr.
Hanson's assistant, F.F.Osborne
will go to Yale to complete the
course for his Doctor's degree;
the other members of the party,
Robt. Henderson and Jas. Sinclair, have homes in Vancouver.
The former is attending the B.C.
U., and the latter is a graduate
of that inslitutiou.

What might be all the visible
remains of a tragedy some years
ago was found recently by R. F.
"Dick" Sullivan and Jess Set-
terington on the glacier at the
head of the west fork of Sutton
river, which drains into Hastings Arm.
The glacier is about IJ  miles
wide, and while crossing it at a
point some four miles   from  its
foot, about half way across they
came upon the remains  of  two
canvas kit bags, two canvas coats
a badly rusted automatic pistol,
hair brush,   rotten   remains  of
underwear and other   clothing,
��� fishing rod and a rotten prospec-
; tor's hand  book.   Close to  tbe
spot was a large,  deep  hole  in
the ice.
The clothing etc had the appearance of having lain on the
ice for perhaps as long as nine
years.   Down near the foot   of
the glacier they found fan old
hand sleigh, some three miles
from the clothing but with impassable ice between. The first
articles had been scattered, as
though the people to whom they
belonged were in trouble and
had left suddenly, going through
their kit hurridly before leaving.
The fact that no cooking utensils
were to be found would support
this theory.
If the men had been  coming
up the ice from   Hastings  Arm
it is hardly likely that they would
have left their sleigh at the foot,
and if they had been going d*-wn
the ice they would not have  left
their kit when they had a sleigh
to take it on.   Then again,   the
ice being bad between the  two
points, they would not have taken
a sleigh over it;   therefore   the
possibility offers that the  sleigh
and the clothing had nothing to
do with each other.
The manner in which the cloth-
| ing etc was scattered would   indicate the possibility of aome one
having been   lost  in  a  fog  or
caught in a snow storm and run
short ef food, and as a result being badly up against it.
On the other hand there is the
possibility of a quarrel or perhaps one man going into a crack
in the ice, and the remaining
man, having too much stuff to
take out, left what he did not
need, theugh even with this he
would hardly have left his own
as well as his partner's coat behind, as was apparently done.
Inquiries made among the old
timers locally have failed to
elicit any information as to men
being lost in that section, but it
is possible that they went up
from Hastings Arm, in which
case nothing would be known of
them here, but might be found
out from old-timers in Anyox.

Pure beer
promotes
true
temperance ���
WHEN pure beer, as is the case of British
Columbia, is available to the people, the
drinking of liquors of high alcoholic content is
lessened and true temperance is promoted. The
legal, above-board and Government controlled sale
of beer in British Columbia, in licensed premises
by the glass and in Government stores by the
bottle, has removed this Province from among the
communities in which alcoholism is a factor of
importance.
The attempt at total prohibition made in the
United States early showed its complete bankruptcy from a moral point of view and its utter
failure as regards enforcement. Now its ill consequences from a social standpoint are becoming
evident.
To mention only one result, among seven million
people insured by the Metropolitan Life of New
York the death rate from acute alcoholism has
increased 600 per cent, since the enforcement of
prohibition was attempted. Which means that as
pure beer was taken from the people an illicit
trade in concentrated and easily handled liquor of
high alcoholic content, and mostly poisonous,
sprang up and drunkenness increased.
Recent deaths from poison alcohol, made from
motor radiator spirit, in Ontario and New York
afford an example of the harm of preventing the
use of light beverages such as pure beer. This
flood of death-dealing poison, naturally, did not
affect Quebec, where pure beer is to be had by
the people in the most free and open manner.
The people of British Columbia are protected
against the danger that comes from making
distilled liquors a beverage���for which they were
never intended���and against the poison brews that
flood the United States, for British Columbia is
provided with pure beer by the five modern plants
\   of the Amalgamated Breweries, the sale of which
is supervised and controlled by the government
throughout.
Pure beer  is   a  healthful  and  invigorating  beverage of a
definite food value, with an alcoholic strength of V/% per cent.,
as required by law in British Columbia, only sufficient to
stimulate the digestive system in the most favorable degree.
Its consumption, inasmuch as it displaces the drinking of strong
distilled liquors, is a GUARANTEE OF TEMPERANCE.
The members of tbe Amalgamated Brewers are: Vancouver
Breweries   Ltd.,  Rainier  Brewing  Co. W  Canada  Ltd.,
Westminster Brewery Ltd., Silver Spring Brewery Ltd.,
and the Victoria Phoenix Brewing Co. Ltd., where the beer
supplied to the people of Brltlah Columbia Is made.

The most spectacular stoek
was Dunwell, which was very
heavily traded is ana as said in
last week's issue, sagged very
rapidly in the early part of tbe
week but soon picked up again.
There is a strong rumor that the
Dunwell management intend
placing a further 70,000 shares
on the market to registered
shareholders only at $1.00 per
share. It appears as if this issue is in no way in connection
with present development plans,
but the management deemed it
vise to have a bieger operating
plan at the mine end.
The public are very easily
stampeded in the Dunwell market, and the brokers are strongly
advising the holding of Dunwell
stock, as it is'known that ore reserves are blocked out sufficient
to run the mill the better part of
a year, and also that there is
plenty of cash to finish the mill,
tram and power plant
Marmot Metals was actively
traded in, but the market stood
up very well under some heavy!
offerings. It is reported that
engineers who recently went
over the property were very well
pleased and it is quite possible
this property may be turned over
to a large operating company.
Through the hectic  peri-d  of
[the Dominion election the  local
stocks held very firm, and higher
levels are confidently looked for.
