STRIKE HIGH GRADE ON SEBAKWE
T*HE long tunnel on the Sebakwe property (known also as
' the Bush and National Silver) has penetrated the northern extension of the great B. C. Silver ore body, striking
the vein in a high-grade area, At latest reports, reliable
though unofficial, the vein had been crosscut ten feet without
the footwall being encountered. The ore is said to be a
quartz-porphyry typical of the Premier and B. C. Silver and
carrying argentite, ruby and native silver, and is undoubtedly
a high grade product. The tunnel is in about 3 ICO feet and
has been ariven in record time by a small crew. This is the
best news the camp has had for many a day.

the final figures  for  1925,   are
tfiven below.
Hon. Mr Sloan points to the
quantity increases maae in all
the various products of the industry excepting coal, increases
made regardless of price fluctuations in the metal market. It
is estimated that for the year
4,600,000 tons will be produced
compared with 3,849.269 tons in
1925.
"British Columbia has been
making remarkable strides forward in the output of* metals and

Rumor Unfounded
A rumor, apparently starting
in Hyder, to the effect that the
Big Missouri is closing down, is
emphatically denied by the management.
Mrs Fred Jancowski and child
returned yesterday from an extended visit outside.
An excellent repast, flavored
with wit and wisdom and washed down by the wine of good-fellowship. That was the basketball banquet held in the King
Edward Cafe last Friday night.
About 60 covers were laid for the
four teams of the Portland Canal
League and their friends, including heads of operating departments at the Premier and B. C.
Silver mines.
A magnificent silver shield,
donated by the Canadian Fairbanks Morse Co. to the winners
or the summer series, was presented to the Stewart team by
J.R.Drysdale, head mechanic at
the Premier, with an appropriate address. Wm. Asselstine,
Premier mill superintendent, was
toastmaster. Bill at most times
is bubbling over with merriment
and on this festive occasion he
surpassed himself.
The banquet was followed by
a dance which was well attended
and thoroughly enjoyed.
Mrs J. A. Hall left yesterday
for a visit iu Seattle.
Mrs Frank Bowler left for
England yesterday to visit her
parents.
S.P.Fitzgerald left for Seattle

Grant Mahood left for Seattle
yesterday and from there will go
east again in about ten days, Mr
Mahood says that in all his 15
years' experience here the camp
never looked so good as at the
present time, and he went away
feeling more optimistic than ever
which is saying a great deal.
NONOGENARIAN
MOTHER PASSES
Mrs Caroline Daly, mother of
Patrick and James Daly of this
district, died in Sumas and was
buried in Nelson, B. C, on the
18th of November. Mrs Daly
had lived in Nelson for many
years and was affectionately
known as "Granny" to a large
circle of friends and acquaintances. Born in Ireland 90 years
ago, she was a typical member
of that grand and hardy race
who have taken the lead in pioneering all the world over.
Deceased was the mother of
ten children: Patrick and James
as noted above; Thomas, of Montreal; John, of Nelson, B. C;
Edward, of Fernie, B.C.; Mrs
Mallette, of Montreal; Mrs Cog-
gins, of New York; Mrs O'Neill,
wife of the Customs Collector at
Sumas, B. C, and two daughters
who pre-deceased her.
GOOD PROGRESS
ON EXTENUATE
Camp Buildings Nearing
Completion and Development Star ted���Has Fine
Surface Showings
Wm. Younkin, superintendent
of the Extenuate property, who
was down this week, reports
that excellent progress is being
made in carrying out the program of development and equipment laid out by the company di-
rectois. Fifteen thousand feet
of lumber have already been delivered at the camp site, and the
buildings are fast assuming form.
These consist of a bunkhouse, 18
x 24 feet, two full stories in
height; cook house, 15 x 18 feet;
office, general store house, assay
office, blacksmith and machine
shop, stable and compressor
house. The camp is "only 1800
feet from the Big Missouri trail,
with which it is connected by a
good trail built on a wagon ��� road
grade, and the weather has been
ideal for taking in supplies.
Work is also well under way
on the No. 1 tunnel, which will
be a drift tunnel, following the
vein to get under a big surface
showing at a depth on the dip of
some 400 feet. This tunnel will
also open up three cross veins
which have been exposed by surface work, and will have lit) feet
of depth on the first of these. It
is expected, as is usual in such
circumstances, that zones of ore
enrichment will be encountered
as these intersections are approached, and that a considerable tonnage of shipping ore will
be mined in the course of development work. The mining will
be carried on by hand until some
time next month when it is the
intention to install machine drills
which will greatly speed up the
work.
With the completion of the
present plans on No. 1 tunnel,
No. 2 tunnel will be started. This
will also be a drift. 2000 teet in
length, and will take, it is estimated, ten months to complete.
From indications on the surface
it will open up important ore
bodies which will not be touched
by the No. 1 tunnel, and will
also give a depth on the vein of
700 feet. The topography of the
ground is audi that 1000 feet additional depth can be gained by
tunneling without going off the
Extenuate ground.
The Extenuate group consists
of ten full claims in a solid block
and lies in the heart of the Salmon valley basin, being between
the Sebakwe, (which it adjoins)

WHERE'S DOOLEY
IS FULIJF FUN
That Stewart's group of amateur players, "The Pessimists,"
can put on as amusing and well
staged a play as many professionals we have witnessed, was
evidenced by their latest,
"Where's Dooley?" The farce,
which is to be given again tonight
and at the Premier Dec. 7, was
evidently the product of patient
and carefull rehearsals, and a
series of astonishing and laughable situations, led to a satisfying conclusion.
One of the major parts was
played by Mrs G. C. Andrew,
who made a delightfully aristocratic and strong minded school
mistress who refused to be
daunted by the comedy of errors
into which her household was involved. H.G. Marvin impersonated the titled Englishman to
the life, omitting the monocle
and not overdoing the part.
Rev. A, W.R. Ashley took a difficult part as the schoolmistnus'
nephew; Mrs M.J.Esterly played
the part of a vivacious vamp to
perfection and Mrs R. T. Crosby
made a dainty little dumbell,
while Mrs J. Morrice was an
excellent excuse for love at first
sight. Mrs H. P. Gibson made
an elert and determined reporter;
G.C.Andrew as a Yankee sheriff
with an amazing accent, was a
terror to evil doers: P. S. Jack
had a difficult part, taking as his
motto "The Lord Loveth a cheerful sinner," later bringing down
the house as a peroxide blonde;
and last but not least, our inimitable J.W.Wilson took the lines
of the comical lanky bell-hop in
a laughable manner.
The play was very well staged
with appropriate costumes and
furnishings and was made doubly
worth attending by the lovely
music rendered by Mrs W. Jancowski, J.P.Scarlett and Victor
Durant.
Mrs N. H.Stevens returned yesterday from a visit in Vancouver.
Crest and Silver Tip on the north
all properties that have passed
the prospect stage.
Under the direction of Howard
Cameron three distinct ore zones
have been opened up on the property by means of surface cuts
and stripping, upwards of $10,000
being expended in this preliminary exploration. This enables
the company to launch its program of permanent development
with full knowledge of what
they may expect to find underground.
The Extenuate is being equipped with a telephone service to
Stewart, connection being made
with the Big Missouri line.

NEW YORK IS A HICK TOWN
New Yorkers are hicks. They are
provincial. They think the world revolves
around Manhattan Island, and that nobody knows anything: who has not been to
New York to find out. They want the
world to recognize New York as the biggest, the richest, the noisiest, the grandest and most glorious town on the face of
the earth���and perfectly willing to admit
it. New Yorkers look upon a person from
a small place as a real hick, yet they have
it all over us like a tent. Bring a New
Yorker to a small place, and he would be
greener than the grass on the Kootenay
hillsides. It took New York quite a while
to discover that it is the leading hick town
of the country. There was a time when
New Yorkers resented the intimation that
Gothamites were provincial. But they
know better now. At least some"of them
do. Here is a frank admission which the
New York World makes. Here is proof,
as the World sees it:
First you rush to an undertaking parlor to see a dead movie star. If you are
not trampled to death by the mob you met
there, you dash to the wharf to see Gertrude Ederle, Douglas Fairbanks, Krisna-
murti and Peggy Joyce arrive. If this
does not prove fatal you wedge yourself
in a group about a man who is selling a
patent collar button. Then dodging taxi-
cabs, motorcycles, trucks and kiddie cars,
you go home, apply linament, arnica and
iodine to your body, give three cheers for
Al. Smith and Jimmy Walker and leap into bed to get a little sleep before the next
day's fun. Such is life in New York, the
world's greatest hick town.
Nor is that picture overdrawn. An
iron safe being hoisted from the sidewalk
to the tenth story of a New York office
building will cause a crowd, big enough

When ye have stood as a man with men earning your

DIAMOND DRILLING  CONTRACTORS
Twenty-five Years' Experience at Your Disposal
Diamond drilling is to mining and
exploration work what tht X-Ray is to
surgery. The one sure method of
obtaining exact geology. Invaluable
for determining tha most suitable system (method) to adopt for proving,
developing and mining ore bodies.
THAT IS QUEER
Call a girl a chicken and she smiles; call her a
hen and she howls. Call a young woman a witch
and she is pleased; call an old woman a witch and
she wants to scald you. Call a girl a kitten and
she rather likes it; call her a cat and she hates
you.   Women are queer.
If you call a man a gay dog it will flatter him;
call him a pup, a hound or a cur
and he will try to alter the map

he will object to being mentioned

A REAL MODEL HUSBAND
A Stewart woman was discussing home life with a friend over
the teacups the other day, as is
the wont of wives, and remarked
"My husband never drinks, and
he spends his evenings at home.
He is a model husband."
"And he never smokes?" her
friend demanded.
"Only in great moderation. He
likes a cigar after a good dinner,
but I don't suppose he smokes
two cigars a month."

DOREEN PROPERTY
MAKINU MINE
Mining operations on the
Knauss property at Dorreen have
been discontinued until spring
although Mr Tredway, who has
been operating the property the
past season will remain at Dorreen and during the winter will
corduroy the road from the sta
tion to the mine, says the Omineca Herald,
This will overcome the present
difficulty of  having to   suspend
operations every time the roads
soften up.   A couple of  weeks
ago a heavy   snowstorm   visited
the locality and when   the snow
melted the road was top soft  to
use.     During the  season  Mr. I
Tredway shipped three  cars  of j
i ore and the returns were so  sat- i
I isfactory that he is now planning
on woiking  next  season  on  a
much larger scale.
This property has always been
regarded as one that was worthy
of development and although
considerable work was done on
it years ago bv several outfits,
for one reason or another work
was suspended. It is quite within reason that Mr Tredway will
go ahead and make a mine out
of it. Such things have frequently been done before. Many of
the biggest and best mines have
been turned down, first by one
engineer and then another, but
eventually became heavy dividend payers. In fact this has
happened so often that an ad-
i verse report by an engineer is
taken by many as a big boost for
a prospect. This may be such
another case.
Dividends from mines in British Columbia will be greater this
year, as might be expected from
the larger operations.   They will
'exceed $7,500,000.
TOPLEY MINE SOLD
TO SPOKANE CO.
Following a check on reports
recently submitted by B. N.
Sharp, field engineer for the
company, W. H. North, general
manager of thi Standard Silver-
Lead Company of Spokane, visited the Frank Taylor property
at Topley this week, and after
a careful examination of the
showings and workings, he hurried home to recommend to his
company the acceptance of terms
as outlined by the owner.
In Smithers today iMr Taylor
denied a report in a.' district paper that'tne Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co. had taken up
the option on the Topley property owned by him, a denial
which was really unnecessary to
local people well versed in the
srading of that property.
Mr North was very enthusiastic over the Topley claims and
expressed absolute confidence
that his company wouid take up
the proposition, which calls for
the payment of $10,000 by December 5 on a bond of $200,000
over thirty months. Other terms
of the agreement call for work
equivalent to the steady employment of eight men at actual mining.
On Saturday the Taylor mine
was also examined by Hugh McGuire of Seattle, who holds a
controlling interest in the Premier Extension mine at Stewart,
and who outlined an offer that
has been tempting the owner,
and which will be immediately
accepted should the Spokane company turn down the proposition.

The market during the past
week has been very active in all
British Columbia mining stocks.
Prices in roost cases however,
have shown very  little  change.
On the information becoming
public that the Sebakwe, or commonly known as the National
Silver, had encountered ore in
the tunnel, caused heavy buying
in this stock, and in consequence
much higher levels have been
reached. This stock promises
to become very active.
Dunwell is being heavily traded in, and after the big slump in
this stock the price is beginning
to stiffen.
It was decided at the adjourned general meeting in Vancouver
Nov. 26 of the Marmot   Metals
Mining Co. that no further treasury stock would be issued under
a very enhanced price. This has
caused a big demand for the
stock at its present low market
price. It is expected that this
stock will be a very active one in
the near future.
Independence is in steady demand and now that ample finances are available for  future development,    higher   levels  are
looked for.
