I Some Road Work Needed. •With tlie Big creek district enjoying its greatest activity, the need for n • good iwngon road to facilitate delivery ! of supplies and equipment is lmpera- | tive. Some work was done on the road last summer, but with the en larged operations ndw under way considerable more work will be ne cessary In order to provide the ac commodations needed for heavy trsif fic. The Big creek road is easy to keep improved, once it is properly constructed, and the property owners there are hopeful of an adequate road building program from the county of ficials during the spring and summer months. . Silver Is Tempting Prize. Any mine showing a favorable sil ver return ls a tempting prize these days. Tlie Coeur d'Alenes never stew anything like It before, and neithei did any other part of the world. In fact, silver, lead, zinc and antimony are all in the list of climbing metals The world demands the metals and every encouragement should bp given meritorious properties. Where silver will climb to none -can tell. Tlie ac tual world production is less than 160.000.000 ounces and the world de mand is for 300000,000 ounces. The Platt coinage bill, now before con gress, imposes $1,777 "par" value of silver In subsidiary coinage. If passed, ns seems probable, this would mean around $1.75.per ounce for sll ver bullion.

"The olticers of these mines have been in to see whether ( we were in a position to furnish them power for operation. We can furnish them all they need and it is more than likely that such extension wild be started before long." The extension of the power service to the Bagle creek properties will •meq.n much for the further develop mnt of that promising suction of the ■district and It is probable several oth er companies will avail themselves of this power service as soon as it Is available. ; . . . . . .
