Near the westerly border of

very important ore body, said by
those who have seen it to be
about three feet wide, of practically solid galena ore, carrying

MELLEN IN CHARGE
OF RIVERSIDE MINE
R.G.Mellen, well known min
ing engineer, who has been identified with developments in this
district for the past four years,
has recently taken charge of the \
Riverside mine, about 7 miles up|
Salmon river from Hyder.     The |
crew employed has been increased to more than 20  men.     The
50-ton mill is now operating to
capacity on two shifts and  shipments of concentrates are being
made regularly.
Work recently done on the
surface with a view to future
development, has resulted in uncovering important outcrops of
Rood milling-grade ore which
materially improves the prospects of the property.

Governor of Alaska in Hyder
George H. Parks, Governor of
Alaska, arrived in Hyder Sunday night, on -*** motorship Highway, accompanied by M.D.Williams, assiataht district engineer
of the Bureau of Public Roads,
and R.J.Summers, former secretary of Alaska and now connected with the territorial road commission. Their mission was to
inspect local road matters, and
the first-hand information they
obtain should result in great good
to the Salmon and Texas sections
on the Alaskan side.
Examines Silver Bell
E. G. Riebe of Seattle, mining
engineer for the Silver Bell Mining Company, has spent a week
on the company's property which
adjoins the Silverado on the
south, and left Sunday for Juneau, Alaska, where he is directing some heavy mining operations. There will be a story
about the Silver Bell next week.
Dunwell Increases Capital
The motion introduced at the
meeting of Dunwell   Mines  Co.
in Victoria on the 23d was passed unanimously.     This  motion
provides for increasing the capital of the company to $1,000,000
and the immediate sale of 140,000
shares to the present shareholders at 50c. per share, netting the
company an additional $70,000
for carrying out work not originally planned; 160,000 shares will
be placed in the treasury.
A. H. Jarman, prominent San
Francisco lawyer, visited Stewart this week. Mr Jarman, who
has been connected with mining
for the past 30 years, is interested in the Washington property on the south fork of Marmot
river.

that property.
Failing to sell it to the Porter
Idaho, Mr Mehlfeld, who had to
go south wtth his wife, who was
very ill at that time, made a deal
for the ground with Fred Jancowski and associates, who added other ground to it and recently had the whole surveyed.
Whether the ore body now being worked on is a lense or not,
has not yet been determined but
the fact that the Porter Idaho is
working on the same thing 500
feet distant, and that it has been
traced for several hundred feet
above the present workings,
would indicate that they have a
very valuable vein.
work driving in on the vein and
sacking ore for shipment as they
go. As a result of this strike
Jack Rennie, who has the packing contract, has enlarged his
pack train and is bringing down
about 20 tons per week. Another shipment of 20 tons of ore
from this property went south on
the Prince Rupert last Sunday
bound for the Trail smelter, and
similar shipments will be made
each week until snow forces a
suspension of packing. It is estimated that there are approximately 200 tons of this ore in
sight that can be mined without
the use of powder.
Specimens brought into town
are among the best ever seen
here, showing fine-grained galena liberrlly sprinkled with ruby
silvtr, with freibergite and silver
bromides. Native silver is also
prevalent.
SAMUEL WALL
FATALLY HURT
Struck by a runaway bucket
of concentrates in the Premier
tram angle station at Nine-mile,
better known as Angle 3. Sam
Wall, who was in charge of the
station, was fatally injured,
The accident occurred at 3
o'clock last Wednesday afternoon
and the victim died at 5 o'clock.
He was injured about the right
side and in the head, the base of
his skull being fractured.
Deceaseed, who had a host of
friends in British Columbia and
Alaska, was born in Norway 42
years ago, and came to this north
coast as quite a young man. He
was a member of the Pioneers
of Alaska and the Moose Lodge.
At the time of going to press unsuccessful efforts have been made
to locate relatives of the late Mr
Wall through friends his employment card states reside in
Seattle, and as a result it has
been decided to hold the funeral
services in Hyder at 3 o'clock
Sunday afternoon, Sept. 26, under the auspices of the
Lodge.

Returns From Peru
L. Jessen, managing director
of Boyles Bros. Limited, diamond
drill contractors, has returned
from Peru, where he spent six
months in connection with his
company's operations on the
property of the' Northern Peru
Mining and Smelting Co. Mr
Jessen has given the News a
fascinating account of his visit,
for which we hope to find room
in these columns next week.
B.N.Sharp, prominent mining
engineer of Spokane, visited the
Marmot section this week.
Pete Ober, a well known miner, returned Sunday from the
Bulkley valley, where he has a
ranch.
J. O. Lyon and family have
moved ever from Hyder and are
occupying Angus McLeod's residence on 9th street.
Mrs J. Campbell and daughters Cherry and May, left Sunday
Vancouver���Because the two
plaintiffs in a suit for $600,000
damages were not present in
court aad because none of the
ten defendants were ever served
with copies of writ taken out
against them Mr. Justice McDonald in the Supreme Court
dismissed the action.
W.W.Rush of Stewart and Arthur R-\rjt.of Oliver brought the
suit against defendants in a
charge which states that their
actions prevented the partners
obtaining money with which to
develop their mine property in
the Portland Canal district.
The defendants include the
American Mining and Smelting
Company of Tacoma, Attorney
General Manson, and preminent
business men of Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle.
Mr Manson is named because
it is alleged he knew of a fraud
which they charge was committed but failed to take action to
end it.
"This looks like abuse of the
process of the courts," said His
Lordship in handing dowh his
decision.
A sensational gold strike was
recently made on the south fork
of Marmot river bv H. C. and
Charles Magee. An assay return shown the News this week
gave values of 139,96 ounces in
gold, valued at $2'.99.20, with
$17 in silver, or a total value of
$2816.20 per ton. This property,
now consisting of six claims, is
situated on the high ridge on the
south side of Marmot river and
north side of Bulldog creek about
opposite the Marmot Metals and
Patricia properties. The ore
from which these values were
obtained is a narrow quartz vein
traceable for a considerable distance and averaging in width
from two to four inches.
This property, which is owned
by H.C.Magee of Stewart and
Moose Dr. McKechnie of Vancouver,
and associates, is situated east
of and adjoining that located last
fall by Chas. Magee and Ed
Casey, on which was found free
milling quartz assaying $110 in
gold. Thirteen claims in all have
been located, and it is reported
that the strike has started quite
a stampede of stakers for that
section. This is the second gold
strike made this season on the
south fork of Marmot river, the
other being made by W.R.Harner
and Homer Ficklin to the east of
the one now reported.
TO CALL MEETING
ON INCORPORATION
Considerable routine business
was dealt with at the Board of
Trade meeting Tuesday evening.
Among matters coming up for
discussion was incorporation under the Village Act, which resulted in a decision to call a public meeting, in about three weeks
of the residents of Stewart, for
the purpose of discussing the
question. A great deal of information has been compiled by the
committee investigating the subject,-for the benefit of the town,
which will be submitted at the
meeting.

Progress on Sebakwe
Good headway is being  made
with the tunnel on the Sebakwe,
it now being in 600 feet, 350 of
which is timbered,   lt is understood that this tunnel has for its
objective the cutting at depth of
the northern extension of the ore
bodies in B.C.Silver, which it is
understood to be estimated  will
take 1000 feet of tunnel.

Pure beer
proved pure
by test
(T***9 HE Amalgamated Breweries of British
\_y Columbia are determined that the beer they
make for the people of British Columbia
shall be pure and wholesome. No care is spared,
either in the selection of materials or in the
processes of brewing, that will guarantee pure
beer.
Each of the five companies associated in the
Amalgamated Breweries maintains laboratories
where continuous analyses are made, as a check
on the methods of brewing and on the finished
product. The Government also, through the
Liquor Control Board and in the interests of the
people, regularly examines for quality all the beer
sold in British Columbia. But that is not enough.
A further check is provided for the Amalgamated
Breweries by absolutely independent tests made
frequently by reputable public analysts upon
request, and by means of these reports the beers
of the various breweries are compared for purity
and general quality.
A report has just been made by the well known
firm of Macdonald & Macdonald, inspecting and
testing engineers of Vancouver and Victoria, on
beer made by the Amalgamated Breweries. This
report indicates the high quality of the beers sold
to the people of British Columbia.
For instance, after noting that in the
beer tested the original extract in beer
wort was high���14.21 per cent.���that
alcohol was 4.37 per cent., that "extract" in the beer was 5.88 per cent.,
and that there was a complete absence
of foreign substances, the report goes
on to state:
" beer is of excellent
quality- as the above analysis
plainly shows.
tt
The Amalgamated Breweries are sensible of the obligation
placed upon them to provide the best and purest beer
for the people of British Columbia. Whether you purchase
beer by the glass in licensed premises under Government
supervision or by the bottle at Government stores you
receive a healthful and beneficial beverage.
The members of the Amalgamated Brewera ara: Vancouver
Brewertea Ltd., Rainier Brewing Co. of Canada Ltd.,
Weatminater Brewery Ltd., Sltoer Spring Brewery Ltd.,
and the Victoria Phoenix Brewing Co. Ltd., where the hear
supplied to the people at Brltlah Columbia la made.

Control Board or by the Government of British Columbia.

polling 454 in 1925 aad 442 on
the 14th.   This wss very probably due to people going down
to Rupert for the Exhibition.
A number of the smaller places
throughout the riding show good
steady growth during the past
year, denoting a healthy condition throughout the north.
In s review of the polling places, one is struck by tho diversified industrial interests represented in this riding. For instance, there are Love's Ranch
and Shehan's Ranch; Cassiar
Cannery and C lax ton Cannery;
Engineer Mine and Dunwell
Mine. Farms, eanneries and
mines-and the logging camps
voting at all three. Verily. Skeena riding is slmost s little empire in itself.
