organized the Premier Extension

The success of the Premier

ing its organization to take up
holdings immediately north and

sudden interest in London in

examination and survey of the
property, including the tracing
of the shear-zones and dykes
northwesterly, through the road
and pipe line cuts and canyons
of the East and Main forks of
Cascade Creek, on to the Woodbine-Vancouver groups, they
came to the conclusion that these
properties, with their similar
geological characteristics, and
the mineralization found on them
fully warranted development
with the possibility of proving
up ore-bodies of commercial value; and so they reported.
Meantime the temporary excitement had died down; and in

PETITION FOR
NEWSCHOOL
A petition, which is being
signed by practically everyone
interested in school matters, has
been prepared for presentation
to the government asking that
the Stewart school be ehanged
from its present location at the
extreme north limit of the town
to the government block on 7th
street, on which is already located the court house and government offices.
The present school location is
a serious handicap to the children in the winter on account of
their having to break trail
through the deep snow and arriving in an exhausted and bedraggled condition that is not
conducive to the best results in
school work.

SERVICE ON THE C. N. R.
In an interview pnbliahed n few days
ago in the Ottawa Citizen Mr Adoiph 8.
Ochs, publisher of the New York Tines,
commented enthusinstieally upon tne service given by the Canadian National Railways. "The courtesy and attention of
Canada's railway employeee," he declared, "was in marked contrast with what
you run across in the United States." This
tribute from so high a source Is one which
the people of Canada can appreciate, because they understand how* deserving it is.
The good spirit which marks the employees of the National Railways in their re-
become one of tbe assets of the
system, l>rtnging forth frequent comment
awhaa was uttered by Mr Ochs. The people's lines awe cowdocrable of tbeir patronage to the attention given to details by
employees.
The development of this spirit is not,
of coarse, a haphazard achievement. Its
encouragement is one of ike polkies of'
management. It is the result of educational work conducted along various lines.
A party bf men who sell tickets in Eastern
Ontario, for example, has just returned
from a three week's tour of the West, taking te all points of special interest to travellers. It was the. third party of such
men which went over the system this summer, and It was not in any case a holiday

a written report dally on his observations, which is to be reviewed by >a high
official. The result, it is anticipated, will
he thst when the traveling public asks questions
at the ticket window the answers will be prompt
and authentic. The ticket seller has seen for
himself.
This is one of a multitude of methods adopted to make the road, and its employees, of service
to travellers. The benefits are becoming increasingly evident. The Canadian flat tonal is making
a name for itself and for the country through its

the New York directors for a
get rich-quick scoop failed. Trouble ensued between the Ottawa
and New York interests. Liti-

was tied up from development
for two years.
New Development
When the title was again cleared the property was  examined
by a number of mining engineers
representing leading companies,
who all expressed favorable opinions concerning it.    Meantime
the owning companies carried on
development in a small way. The
construction of the  wagon  road
to the Indian mine two years ago
opened out the mineral zone in a
striking  manner  and  disclosed
valuable ore in  the Red   Bluff.
This ore was followed  down  by
.open cuts to a considerable   distance below the elevation of the
| road.     Other open  cuts  were
> made up the Red Bluff and back

'750 ft, ore being found in all of
'them, and some of them  very
rich.    Then a  new  drift  waB
' opened above the road, and run
1 for a distance of 25 feet.     This
work    developed  the  best ore
\ found on this part of  the  property.   From it 50 tons were piled
on the dutop and attracted  tne
attention of all mining men  who
saw the showing.
The result of this development
proved most encouraging, suggesting a reserve of probable ore
amounting to about 100,000 tons.
Sampling for values gives an average of about $18 a ton: This
development was done by Malcolm McKenzie, a foreman at
the Premier mine, who is satis*
fied from his experience in the
ore occurrences there, that the
Woodbine-Vancouver groups are
the making of a large mine. A
noticeable feature that he points
out is the cross-faulting of the
veins and the ehrichments there
as at the Premier.."
A Labyrinth of Veins
The Red Bluff vein strikes
northeast and southwest. It is
approximately parallel to the
main veins of Premier and- B. C.
Silver. As such it is probably
contemporaneous geologically
with these veins and subject to
similar influences to which the
mineralization is attributable,
especially where associated with
the shear-zones and dykes traceable northwesterly from these
properties. Northwest of the
Red Bluff is another vein paralleling it, which is of large dimensions, but has not yet been crosscut to its full width. ���_ This vein
is well mineralized with silver,
lead and zinc, and has given high
assays from picked ore. On de-
velopment it is probable conditions will be similar to those at
the Red Bluff.
TowaVd the northeast end of
the property is a large' vein in
which open cuts show proportionately equal values in gold and
silver. It looks very promising.
Many smaller veins are to be
found on the property associated
with quartz-feldspar dykes and
shear-zones, but no development
has been done on them. Where
broken into they show sulphides
of promising appearance. On
the southwest end of the property there is a contact between

Transportation
The property is one of tbe
most conveniently located in the
district so far as transportation
is concerned. It is within f of a
mile of the main Premier motor
road at 13 mile;, from which a
well-graded wagon road has been
constructed, with a high level
bridge over Cascade creek sbove
the power house of the Premier
Gold Mining Co. The road has4
been completed for a considerable distancesouth of the Woodbine-Vancouver camp and again
westward from the bridge, leaving a gap of 2000 ft. to grade
and complete the connection.
Wheu this work is done, ore and
concentrates can be skipped by
motor truck in summer, or by
sleighs and caterpillar tractors
in winter to the dock at Stewart
for transportation to smelters.

the past week has not developed
anything spectacular in the mining market, though prices have
remained firm with the stocks of

At the present time B. C. mining has never been in a stronger
position, and general conditions
were never so sound, and with
the large amount of outside capital becoming interested in the

Helen Bait,
Appeeant,
surplus earnings in the mines of
the Portland Canal district It
is fnoerally conceded that the
present time is the opportune
asomentto consider this question, at ths. most attractive
stocks are tt very low level*,
where in practically the eaaa of
some Ave or six properties, ad*
vancements in their stocks is no
longer a point of conjecture.
Daring the past few weeks
one of the well known stocks of
die Portland Canal district haa
shown a ntt increase of over 100
per cent and this can be safely
look -d for jn a number more.
One can safely say now that
the eyes of the mining world
sit centered on Stewart and district and an old adage is, when
the public really want something
they are always willing to pay
for it
As has been predicted for tbe
past few months In this column
the Marmot section is in a way
to make history for the Portland
Cabal district The fact that
the Premier organisatiosVhsn secured holdings there, antfpaying
the largest cash payment recorded in years for any property in
the west bears out the statements which have been made.
��� Any time the largest operating
company in the district will ex-
eeed the usual procedure for the
purchase of properties in a cer-
taie district that district hi worth
watching by the general public.
There are only two stocks listed
in that section, Porter Idaho and
Marmot Metals.
