Signs point to a revival of in
terest in the mining industry for
this section. True, among many
interested parties, there has never j
been any lack of interest in this
matter, but other industries havp|
held the public attention for manyj|^«
years, the successful Universal
sulation Zonolite mines proving a
notable exception to the rule.
Saturday afternoon Frank Lilly, i
of the Mine Research Bureau, s
kane, paid this office a very pleas- j
ant call. In discussing the status ofj|
mining in the Libby-Troy section,
Mr. Lilly stated, that in his esti
mation the industry has been and
is in its infancy and the section has
a brilliant future ahead of it com
parable to the Coeur d' Alene sec
lion.
While gold, copper and other
metals are found here, Mr. Lilly
believes that the important opera
tions of the future will be silver

LIBBY DISTRICT IS
A PROMISING FIELD
Tiere, are by
authorities, is born out in a state
ment written Thursday of last week
by Mr. Charles E. Pond, Spokane
Broker and Stock salesman, who,
writing to James M. Blackford, Sr.,
regarding a survey which was to
(and has been) made this past
week end, comments:
"As you know, I am very vitally
interested in the development of
the Herbert Gold Mines, Incorpora
ted, at Libby In fact I am very
much interested in seeing the Lib
by mining district come into its
own, for in my opinion, it will be
one of the outstanding mining dis-,
tncts in the country.
"Mr. Frank Lilly who you know,
know of, wril be in Libby on
Saturday Sunday and Monday with
a view of checking up on th e en
tire Libby district, and as I haVe
written you about that visit, there
is no use adding more. However
Mr. L. Lore Wartes, the outstanding
mining engineer of the Pacific
Northwest, and who is the mining
engineer on the Hubert orooertv
engineer on me nuuen piuperiy,
will be in Libby, Saturday. August
3. It should prove conclusively
vmi that the nennte who
to you that the people who
gineers of standing as L. Loie.
Wartes, it is definite proof that
their property has merits and will
be developed in the right way."
Mr. Wartes is not only a mining
engineer of far-reaching fame and
consulting engineer for the Her
bert Gold Mines, Inc., but is also
quoted in other scientific research
matters. The Hon. Walt Horan,
representative to Congress from
Washington, has spread on the Con
gressional Record of March 26. 1946, !
a report from Mr. Wartes regarding I
the atomic bomb tests which are
both challenging and a proof of
the depth of thi engineer's studies
or
in scientific research.
The party which arrived Satur
day in Libby also included Jas. S.
Crandall, Empire Engineering Co.,
Spokane, whose duties are to ex
aminc mines, collecting information
regarding them.
The party, headed by Mr. Wartes
in assisting Frank Lilly, made an
aerial study of the district Satur
day afternoon. County Engineer Iia
Miller, and Garth Kennelty, in
charge of operations at the Herbert
mine, guiding. Mr. Miller guided
the aerial inspection in making ob
servations of the entire district,
while Mr. Kennelty guided the
ground observations which were
made Sunday and Monday. .
The study was made under the
auspices of SEC, a government bur
eau for the safeguarding of the pub
lie in promotional matters. Reports
of the study, while not released
for publication, prove very interest
in* Kennelty and Miller will
continue their respective duties a
long the line of development of the,
Herbert property, and Crandall is
to examine and report on all mines
and mining prospects in the Libby
and connecting districts.

Ch.\ the* bear had many comical

When Chub* was about 18 months
of .age. thc c R Montgomery Cir
cue came though Libby, and the
bear's master was prevailed upon
to sell Chub to the show. Twenty
years later, the 15th of last June,
to be exac t, the Montgomery Cir
eus returned to Libby. Mr. Hamel
while going through the menagerie,
department of the show, noticed a|
fbig brown bear in one of the cages.
He asked the keeper where he got
the bear, and was not too great-[
ly surprised when the man replied:
"From a man by the name of Al|
Hamel."
The bear proved to be Chub,
who after traveling for 20 years,
had at length returned to visit his
native hills and home town, an old!
and tried circus trouper. In spite
of the fact that the bear had lost
all his teeth, he was fat and sleek,
and seemed well contented with life
in "the sawdust ring,"
When asked if Chub remember
ed his old master, Mr. Hamel re
plied that he ,had not tried to
awaken old memories in the bear's
mind Doubtless the big bear was
blissfully unaware of the fact he
was near the place of his birth,
and surrounded by "The Hills of
Home."

Over 400 Men Battle the

BY WEDNESDAY NOON
The Kootenai Forest's largest fire
since the Edna Creek fire of 1936,
was under control at Noon yester
day (August 7), forest authorities
said, bringing to an end four days
struggle in which 450 men under
supervision of Ranger O. A. Knapp,
of Rexford, fought to control the
flames.
Nine hundred acres of timber
land have burned west of Rexford
between Boulder and Soloman
Creeks since fire was reported Sun
day afternoon at 1:30. Investiga
tion proved that the fire was a
hangover from a lightning fire on
July 29. It is believed that high
wind fanned a smouldering stump
into flames and soon the surround
ing timber had ignited. Spot fires
caused when the wind blew burn
ing cones or branches from the
blaze were sometimes a half mile
from the main fire but, covered
from its smoke, could not be spot
ted by rangers until they too, grew
into large fires. Matters were made
worse when the fire took to crown
