BUILDERS
IT IS NOT uncommon to find com
murtities and towns named in honor of
some man or woman, in recognition of
services rendered mankind. But upon few
men in this life is such honor bestowed,
and to fewer still is the honor given, of
being God's medium for its creation, and
master mind behind its greater development. Upon few, very few, is such blessing bestowed. The town of Stewart is one
of the few.
In the passing days of the past century, and dawning of the present, several
of the Stewart family were wandering over
the earth in search of the mineral wealth
hidden in its bosom. As with many others
of all ages this search carried them far
and wide, till in 1902 John W. Stewart,
after coming out from Atlin, met on the
Naas, Dana, the well known geologist,
who at that time had just returned from
inspecting the Roosevelt group on Bitter
creek. It was Mr Dana's faith in the district, and prediction that one day it would
be a great producer of metals, that crys-
talized the existing idea in Mr Stewart's
mind of coming into this section, which
he did in September of that year, accompanied by Hugo Stratford, a present resident of Stewart.
present townsite. Mr Raiitey located,
under the laws of Alaska, the land west of
what is now Columbia street, and Mr
Stewart that east of that street. At that
time the temporary International Boundary line ran up the centre of the Bear
river valley.
In 1904 Robert M. Stewart joined his
brother, and together they continued prospecting.   The little community grew until
in 1905 a post office was established and!
Robert Stewart  was appointed its postmaster.   Following a custom long established in western Canada, the post office
was named after him, and was gazetted as
Stewart Post Office; in natural sequence,
the town took the name of the post office.
Later the two brothers established a hotel
and store on the site now occupied by the
Hotel King Edward.   The growth of the
community continuing, the Stewart Land
Co. was incorporated and the town platted.
In 1906 the brothers located the Sunbeam claim, the initial claim of what is
now the Dunwell mine.   Handicapped by
few rock exposures and tremendous overburden, it was years before the true merits
of the property were realized, with the result that
It was included in the reorganization of the  old
Stewart Mining and Development Co., which  had
operated the adjoining property for several yearp.
The considered at that time insignificant Dunwell
elaim ultimately  became,   as  today,   the  corner
stone of the building, and now rapidly proving to
be a mine of  great  potential   wealth,   that has
attracted to Stewart's back doer, the  Bear  river
valley, immense sums of capital for the  development of other properties, and is primarily responsible for the great activity now being experienced
in that section, no vital to the town.
Years of hardship, labor, and disappointment piled upon disappointment, that would have
broken the hearts of less dogged men; supported
by a dauntless faith, nourished by an unseen
hand, as is always the case in the working out of
the scheme of things, they ploddsd on until today
the harvest appears about ready for the garaering.
Stewart is a thriving and grewing community.
The Dunwell will soon reward its developers. A
life's work will be completed. A name will be
handed down to posterity, and born upon the lips
of countless unborn generations, a monument to
the type of men who are Builders of Nations.

That fall he located the j discovery and showed his nuggetB and   dust,   the
Rainier group, just east of the mouth of
Bear river. Returning the following
spring, 1903, and seeing a great future
for the district, he acquired more property and subsequently, with the assistance
of the late Mr D. J. Rainey, staked the
whole of the head of Portland Canal, the
rush to the new digginjrs was so great that the
Governor of British Columbia followed the popu-
lation from Victoria to Leechwood, ZU miles away.
There he built the first Government House, a log
building, the walls of which are still standing. It
is estimated that $30,000 were taken out of the
now diggings within a month from the announcement of the discovery.

PORTER IDAHO
STATEMENT
The semi-annual report of the
Porter-Idaho Syndicate, published below, is of particular interest just now, not enly to those
who hold syndicate units but to
the general public, on account of
the gratifying achievements at
the property and the rapid advance in the price of units since
their sale by the management
was discontinued. The report
follows:
To the Unit Owners:���
The present holdings of the
Syndicate consist of seven mineral claims located on the North
Fork of the Marmot River in the
Portland Canal   District,   B. C,
been driven a distance of 100 ft.
The tunnel is approximately five
feet by seven feet, and 60 tons
of ore, valued at better than
$200 per ton, was extracted from
the tunnel and is now ready to
ship. This high grade ore lies
against the hanging wall > of the
vein. No cross-cuts have yet
been made, so the width of the
vein is not known. The vertical
depth obtained in the upper tunnel is approximately 150 feet. A
tunnel was started 50 feet below
the upper tunnel, and now has a
lateral depth of 20 feet en the
vein, with the same character of
ore as is in the upper tannel.
The trustees have contracted
with the firm of Bryson and Har-
ner for the delivery of 360 tons
of ore from the mine to the
Stewart  Wharf,   and  arrange-

.,   , . , Coastwise Steamship  Company
Alaska,   and   about  ten    miles
from Stewart, B. C.
The property was located by
Clay Porter and associates in
1920, and prior to the organization of the Syndicate, the work
was carried on by the locators, i
and several highly mineralized
deposits were explored to such
an extent as to justify more extensive operation.
The property is reached by a
foot trail from the beach at the
mouth of the Marmot River, a
distance of about six and a half
to seven miles. The British Columbia Government is now building a puck trail to the workings,
whiah should be ready for the
pack train by July 20th, 1924.
The present workings are   at
about 4500 feet elevation.   What

a total of 120 for 24 hours. This
was accomplished by putting a

the tram, installing a larger motor and speeding up the tram.
Formerly an average of about
260 buckets a shift came down,
