TRAGIC DEATH OF
E. VV. HINCKLEY
U.S. Immigration Official
Fatally Injured by Falling
Over a Cliff While With
Mountain-climbing Party
Victim of adherence to his
principle of duty as he saw it,
Earl W. Hinckley, immigration
inspector at Hyder, lost his life
on the treacherous slopes of Mt.
Lincoln early last Monday morning, while leading to the beach a
party of young mountain climbers. The party, consisting of
Thelma Burleigh, Grace Birkland
Lillian Stewart, Mr Hinckley,
Hubert Thomas, Barry Blue, Robert Sutton and Wendell Fehr-
ing, climbed the mountain, which
id a short distance from Hyder,
on the Alaskan side, 'early Sunday morning. On their way
home Mr Hinckley and Miss Burleigh led the rest of the party
and were trying to find a safe
outlet to the beach. Mr Hinckley slipped into a small canyon
about 10 o'clock in the evening,
tailing a distance of approximately 200 feet and landing on a rock
ledge, with a badly shattered
jaw. several broken ribs, fractured skull and an injured ankle.
Miss Burleigh proved to be a
real heroine under circumstances
that would try the nerve of experienced mountaineers. Though
but a young girl she made her
way down in the dark, over the
walls that had sent her companion to his death, and located his
semi-conseious form. Not only
that, she remaind with kirn until
life wan extinct, using portions
of her garments in an effort to
provide the warmth he craved
when the chill of death was approaching; and when the first
sign of daylight appeared she
scaled the cliffs and notified the
balance of the party, who had
made camp on the mountainside,
of the tragedy.
The body was recovered by a
Party of volunteers from Hyder,
and shipped to Mr Hinckley's
old home in Rhode Island, on
Tuesday's boat, accompanied by
his brother Arthur.
The late Mr Hinckley was one
of the mo3t highly respected and
valued members of the commun-
,ty wh>ch composes Hyder, Alaska, and Stewart. B.C. Since 1923
he had taken an active part in
*������ social and athletic functions
of ihe camp, and his friends here
co-nprisethe entire population.
He was 547 years old, and is surged by his parents, three sis-
tos and his brother Arthur.

TUNNELING ON
MARMOTMETALS
Angus McLeod, managing director of the Marmot Metals
Mining Co., visited the property
this week and reports having
found very satisfactory progress
being made.
This season's exploration work,
he said, has resulted in the location of four parallel veins, on the
east end of the property, striking up and down the mountain
in a large mineralized zone.
Up until the last week work
has been confined to tracing these
out, and open cutting, though
the first part of the season necessitated considerable trail building in order to get to them. One
of the center veins has been
traced from the top ofthe mountain down over very steep ground
to near the bottom of the hill,
a difference in elevation of some
2000 feet. Three cuts on this
vein recently sampled by a competent and thoroughly experienced person independent of
the company, gave the following
results: $30.50; $15.50 and $19.60
These three cuts varied in width
from five to 15 feet. The values
were in gold, silver and zinc,
with the latter mineral predominating.
Mr McLeod stated that he is
increasing the crew immediately
for the purpose of driving two
tunnels, one on each of two
veins, in order to explore these
showings underground as much
as possible before snow flies.
Both these tunnels will be in ore
from the portals and will gain
about one foot of depth for each
foot driven. They are roughly
150 feet apart.
Mr McLeod also expressed
himself as being very well pleased with the season's work to
date, for in addition to the location of the four parallel veins
mentioned, several other outcrops have also been located,
scattered from near the foot of
the hill, or an elevation of about
2000 feet, to near the top, which
is about 4200 feet. The time at
his disposal has not yet permitted the exploration of these
showings, this work being left to
a future date.

LEAD-ZINC MAN
VISITSSTEWART
Doctor Alcock. of the dominion geological department, visited Stewart for a week in connection with the compilation of a
book or report on the lead-zinc
possibilities and production of
Canada. While here he visited
the more important operations,
being shown over the district by
Doctor Geo. Hanson, of the geological survey. Doctor Alcock,
when seen by the News, had little for publication, this being
kept for his report, as is usual in
such cases. One thing with
which he was impressed, how-
ever, is the extent of the district
and its transportation facilities,
meaning by this the fact that
the diatrict is situated on the sea
coast. Long rail haul to markets is eliminated, in favor of
the cheaper and more versatile
seas transportation. The Doctor
left here to visit sections of
southern B. C.
LABOR DAY
CELEBRATION
At last week's meeting of the
celebration committee it was decided te start the Labor Day program at 1 p.m., instead of 10:30
a.m. as originally planned. The
change has been made in view
of the possibility of unfavorable
weather, the organizers preferring to crowd the events and provide an alternative entertainment should some of the features
have to be cancelled.
Application has been made to
the United Services Club for the
use of their hall for the afternoon
and evening. Arrangements
are in hand to build a temporary
sidewalk between the Opera
House and Service Club, to enable patrons of both houses to
change their style of amusement
as conveniently and often as they
wish.
The Women's Auxiliary to the
Hospital, who are the purveyors
of refreshments at the dance,
applied for a marquee. This will
be erected near the Opera House.
In the Klondike camp there are
to be chances to make big stakes
at the roulette wheel or faro,
vingt et un or the crap game,
at the crown and anchor board,
or the petit chevaux. Space
forbids a complete description of
the fun to be had in this camp.
A big sweepstake is being organized in connection with the
rock drilling contest, and an election pool is expected to provide
plenty of excitement on the side.
The committee is anxious to
receive additional entries for the
rock drilling contest, wrestling
on horseback, and of those willing to take part in the parade,
as soon as possible. Since this
meeting took place a rock has
been prepared and a staging
erected, ready for those taking
part in the big drilling contest.
LUNCHEON FOR
MR. WELSFORD
A complimentary luncheon was
tendered R.A.H.Welsford, president of the Union Steamships
Company, last Friday noon by
the Stewart Board of Trade.
After the luncheon W.C.Cameron, president of the board, introduced Mr Welsford in a few appropriate words, and asked him
to address the gathering.
Commencing by apologising
for not being a fluent speaker,
Mr Welsford rather surprised
his audience with an intensely
interesting account of what he
had seen in the district through
the courtesy of W. J. Crawford,
local agent for the company, who
had taken him over it for a week.
He said the scenic attractions
are far in excess of what he had
anticipated, and from what Jie
could gather the district has
greater possibilities as a mineral
producer than people in England
credit, so much so that his company are contemplating the placing of another steamer on the
run just as soon as business offering warrants.
He characterized as absolutely
unfounded the report to the effect
that the C. N. R, Steamship Services might buy out the Union
Company. The Union, he stated, are well satisfied with their
investment and have no intention
of selling.
He next dealt with financial
conditions in England, and the
attitude of Old Country capital
toward this country, prophesying that as soon as things settle
down  to  normal  and  western
Canada business becomes more
established, a great movement
of capital from the British Isles
this way can be expected.
Old Country capital, unfortunately, in years past has experienced a large number of very
heavy losses in Canada, and is
therefore inclined to be wary of
new commitments. However
this condition will right itself
and a change will take place that
will greatly benefit and assist in
the development of this country.
The great strike, he stated, was
taken very well, and due to tbe
common sens'*; of the people,
mixed with a fund of humor, it
worked itself out alright. He,
himself, drove a railway engine
during the strike, which experience he seemed to have enjoyed.
A number of the diners replied to Mr Welsford, William
Noble dealing with the history
of the north coast, and the Union
Steamship Company as he has
known it, as a resident for the
past 29 years, in an intensely interesting manner that was greatly appreciated by all present.
J.W.Wilson, however, crowned
the function with a dry exposition of humor.
F. J. O'Reilly of Victoria, one
of the new board of directors of
the Victoria Mines, elected last
June, visited Stewart during the
week, looking into the company
affairs locally. Mr O'Reilly visited the property and is well satisfied with the progress being
made by the tunneling. By profession he is a B.C.Land surveyor, and as such had considerable
experience in mining in southern
B.C. He is now manager of
Cross & Co., one of the oldest
established real estate firms in
B. C.

ENTERTAINING VISITORS
The Stewart Board of Trade recently
initiated a wise and progressive policy,
that of an entertainment committee, having for its objective the organization of
lnooheons in honor of important visitors
to the district.   Attendance at these functions Is in no way confined to the membership of the Board, and visitors, but rather
it is the desire of the Board that each and
���very individual interested in the growth
and development of the district shall be
present, irrespective of their occupation in
the community.
The policy being quite new, only two
luncheons have to date been given, the
first to Mr. Irwin of Vancouver, the second
to Mr. Welsford of Liverpool, president of
the Union Steamships Co. A third is to
te given this evening to Mr. Lodge, from
New Brunswick, director of the Canadian
National Railways, and manager of Monc-
ton's big daily newspaper.
At the two former luncheons, in addition to the guests, of honor there have
been several other speakers, including
mining engineers etc. As a result a great
deal of interesting and useful information
has been imparted.
It is safe to say that there has been no
movement conceived and put into effect in
Stewart so productive of results as this
entertainment committee.
At no time, except possibly in the
boom days, has Stewart experienced so
many visitors of varying importance, from
of iufluential personages that great diffi
cully has been experienced keeping track
of them.   In addition there has been noted
a marked increase in the number of tourists over previous years.
The pleasing feature of this has been
and is the fact that one and all of these
many visitors have returned to their widely scattered homes and into the outside
world, walking advertisements for the possibilities and future of the Portland Canal,
a good work unconsciously being done.

THE PROSPECTOR'S FRIBND
Under the above heading the Vancouver Daily Province publishes an editorial
eulogy on the late Dr. Uglow, professor
of mineralogy at the University of British
Columbia, who died in Vancouver last
week as the result of an accident sustained some months ago while bathing at
Waikiki Beach, Honolulu.
"The tragic passing of Dr. W.LUglow
will leave a blank at the University where,
in laboratory and class-room, his principal
work was done, during the past six years.
It is probable, however, that the prospectors and mining men of British Columbia
will miss the cheery and capable geologist
even more than his students and colleagues will.
Dr. Uglow was a practical as well as
a theoretical scientist. He knew the hills
as well as he did his text-books and his
specimen cases, Paid, knowing the hills,
he had a lively appreciation of the difficulties of the men who strive to make
their living there. He had every sympathy for the prospector, and he fully realized the importance of the prospector to
the mining industry of British Columbia.
He saw that methods of prospecting were
changing and he spared no pains to give
the men who follow this rather uncertain
calling, a better scientific training, so that they
might not spend weary weeks looking for mineral
where no mineral could possibly exist. Following
his aim along this line, he lectured and demonstrated night after night, during several winters,
to classes organized by the Mining Institute, The
prospectors of British Columbia will go far before
they find a better or more able
friend than the one they have
lost."

Western Canada Mining News
of Vancouver, which uses for its
I slogan   "When  buying   mining
1 stock buy treasury stock   if pos-
' sible.   Stay with it and help development of your mine.   Development gives values to shares,"
has interviewed C.M.Oliver and
W.F.Irwin, prominent stock brokers of Vancouver, and has  the
following to say;
During the past week two
; well known Vancouver brokers
and mining men have returned
from a trip to Portland Canal.
They are men who have been
connected with the mining industry for many years, and their
personal observations on properties in the north are of value.
They visited several properties,
and were able to see for themselves what development has
taken place.   The outlook is that
ties in the north.
"Results already obtained have
proven to a great extent the value of some of the properties there
and given the necessary capital
to develop other prospects, it is
quite certain that a great mining
production can be obtained from
a number of the better known
mines or prospects."
C.M.Oliver, of the firm of C.
M. Oliver & Co., Vancouver,
after a trip to Portland Canal,
repeats his opinion that that district offers the most wonderful
mining opportunities of any like
area in the province.
"My visit has but served to
confirm, if confirmation were really needed, the conviction that
while fortunes have already been
made by those who invested in
Premier and B. C. Silver in the
earlier stages, just as great
chances are available today.
Transportation facilities and
lines of communication brought
to the camp by the success of
the older mines will greatly hasten results for those now classed

'There is no doubt of the value
to British Columbia of the mineral area contained in the Portland Canal district." is the declaration of Wm. F. Irwin, of R.
P. Clark & Company, who has
returned from a personal inspection of important mining proper-
The contract has been let to
deepen the shaft of the American Boy mine, owned by the Harris Mines Limited, near Hazelton, and this work will be done
with all possible despatch. The
shaft is now down 235 feet, and
it is proposed to sink it another
40 feet. This will give access
to an increased tonnage of high
grade ore.

NEW METHOD OF
ORE REDUCTION
Fourteen bars of solid silver,
valued at $4000, formed an exhibit in the B,C. Chamber of
Mines section at the Vancouver
Exhibition This display interested because the bullion was the
first ever produced in this province direct from the mine without having gone through the ordinary smelting process.
Produced at the Horn Silver
mine of Similkameen. The ore
is treated on the property and
the product leaves in ingot form.
The silver ore passes through a
number of rollers until it is finely
pulverized, then is carried into
large tanks containing a cyanide
solution. After continued agitation and mixing, the effect of
which is to precipitate the gold
and silver; the mixture, then in
a slime form, is thouroughly
washed. From the washers the
metallic slime passes into the
furnace, "and metallurgical department, from whence the bars
of silver emerge.
The new process, mining men
say, will have a stimulating effect
on thejindustry in the provinte.
They state that under the usual
smelting processes there is considerable loss of precious metals.
The new method of metal extraction will, they believe, make
many properties producers, because of trie low cost of smelting.

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
The usual fall activity in local
stocks is starting and increased
prices are noticeable in many of
the'mining stocks.
Dunwell is in heavy demand
and the price is rapidly reaching
higher levels.
National Silver G. S. was one
of the marked stocks and is
steadily on the cilmb. and an en
hanced value is looked for.
Marmot Metals remains in
steady demand at a much higher
price than has been obtained for
some time, and with the continued good reports from the mine,
higher prices for this stotk can
be readily expected.
Indian remains inactive, although in good demand around
5 to 6 cents.
Independence reports from the
management are very favorable
and if the deal with Detroit capital materializes, this stock will
be in big demand.
Premier is rapidly reaching its
former price, and as a mining
investment is one of the best in
the mining world.
Glacier Creek is very inactive,
but the close proximity of this
property to the Dunwell places
the Glacier Creek stock in a position where at any time a rapid
enhancement in price can be expected.
It is believed that the new
board of directors of the Victoria
Mines are planning a very progressive development; program
for this property.
