ALASKA MINING NOTES \ !□ “The completion of the new eleven mile tramway, on which we are just starting, will mean bigger operations than ever, and will permit ua to get out ore all the year around,” said Dale L. Pitt, general manager of the Pre mier Gold Mining Company at Ryder, before leaving Ketchikan alter a sev eral days visit in that city. "We already have men clearing the right of way on the British Columbia side and have the material on the ground, and expect to rush the work to completion inside of six months. About one hundred men will be put to wcrk within a month. “The new tramway will start at the mine on the British Columbia side; then will run ten miles in American territory and run back to the dock on British Columbia ground. It will be the largest in Alaska or Canada. The contract for the materials has been let to the Itiblet Company of Spokane, but we are doing the work ourselves. "We have been shipping 500 tons of ore on every boat every two weeks, but have had to let up till the snow is all off, in order to permit the use of wagons again. “The new tain way will mean doing away with the horses and permit eon inuous operation at maximum capa city. It will be used for carrying all ore and concentrates from the mine and hauliflg all supplies and materials up to it. Gravity and electricty will be the power used." Mr. Pitt said the ore continued to be high grade. Asked as to the recent ly circulated report that a specially rich vein had been struck, Mr. Pitt declared that there was "nothing to it” and that it wras evidently the result of someone’s false impression or im agination. Questioned as to progress in other lines, Mr. Pitt said, "Our new concen tration mill and cyanide plant is near ly finished and will be completed we expect, inside of two months. These represent a part of a recent expendi ture of approximatley a half million dollars.” In regard to the-number of men em ployed at the Premier property Mr. Pitt said the payroll shows between 250 and 260 men. The Tally-Ho group of claims along the route of the W. P. & Y. Route, ire to be extensively developed this season. The property has rich ore containing galena and values in gold. A syndicate has been organized in New York, known as the Spotted Fawn Company, and will spend in the neighborhood of ?150,000 in the devel opment of the Twelve-mile silver pro position near® Dawson this summer. This property is well known and the company will thoroughly prospect the claims and install modern machinery for its development. That the future mining outlook of the Bluff section, both for quartz and placer, is bright with promise, is the declaration of Patrick McGrath, a widely known old timer of that sec tion. Mr. McGrath is a sourdough of sourdoughB and is one of the pioneer miners of the Bluff district, having mined there since the early days when that locality was one of the heavy gold producing sections of the peninsula. Bluff is not as lively as in the days of yore, he says, but there are lots of chances for profit able mineral exploitation left. Sev eral outfits were working there last winter. Mike Powers and Martin Marion are taking out a dump on their ground on Eldorado creek and Meegan and Olson are also hoisting gravel in the same locality. Messrs. Meegan and Olson have some excellent quartz properties, on one of which they have operated a small milling outfit for several years with good results. The ore is gold bearing and carries first rate values. Work or. the Nixon fork mine is progressing favorably. A mill is to be installed there next season. There is every evidence of a large quartz camp developing. Analysis of clay from Quadra show that it is perfect for the manufac ture of brick. It is said also that with the addition of limestone the clay will make fine cement and can also be used for pottery. Mrs.* J. C. Peterson and daughters, Irma and Margaret, owners and oper ators of a gold quartz mine at Pearl Harbor, a few miles north of Juneau, have left that city to prepare for the summer’s work on their claims. The three women do all the work In the *nlne alone, including mining in I l*1R tunnel and operation of a small water-power mill. Their first work this spring will be around their home stead in Pearl Harbor, where they have a small farm. Work at the mine and mill will be started when the snow melts off the hills. S. H. \ elvestadt, well known mine operator around Juneau, will devote some time to nickle properties he has discovered on Chichagof island. I he vicinity is to be prospected and some development work done to de termine the extent and value of the claims. Although the marble industry is hard hit by a slack market, the Ver mont Marble Works at Tokeen is em ploying a gang of fifty men, which is about a normal crew. "Statistics prove that marriage is a preventive against suicide,” said Mrs. Gabb. “Yes,” growled Mr. Gabb. “And statistics also prove that suicide is a preventive against marriage." Kodak finishing.

The reason for this tremendous increase in users is simple— Goodrich wears longer than other boots, and fishermen have found it out. Naturally, when a man buys a pair of Goodrich “Hi-Press” and they last so • much longer and are so much more comfortable, and so ma terially cut down that big foot wear bill — he’s going to tell his friends. More and more fishermen are finding out that Goodrich won’t leak,peel or come apart—it can’t, for it is made in One Solid Piece - that’s the Goodrich way.
