After Burns closed the mine in 1911, the tax litigation went through the courts of the state, and the tax matter was finally compromised in 1916. Then the war was on. and Burns was busy with other matters, especially Britain's coal supply. He paid no further attention to the First Thought. In 1919 he was approached to sell. After various negotiations, the pres ent stockholders secured possession of all stock a year ago, and the company was retained as of old. The total payment to Burns and other shareholders is not known, except that it ran to such an amount that the building of a mill has to be done with borrowed money. Most of the stockholders are also taking bonds, but outside capital is being solicited in the loan. No stock has been for sale for years, and none is for sale now, the holders preferring to keep their stock. Officers are Dr. M. B. Grieve, pres ident; Atty. W. J. C. Wakefield, vice president; O. J. Smith, secretary; Atty. Joseph McCarthy, treasurer; Clyde H. Williams, who is a railway contractor, is the other director. Board members are the heaviest stockholders, although some little stock is held in Colville. Character of Ores Total ores in sight are estimated to run $6 in gold and $1 silver.

I .'^^^^"'^^^ MOSTKILES I DIPPED CORDS -andliteir }Ligh J4iUage, R&cords The high mileage records of Firestone Cords continue to em phasize the tact that Firestone methods are different and better. These records, steadily increasing in number and in mileage totr.ls, justify the Firestone contention that there it one best way to build tires. Among the primary sources of Firestone extra mileage is double gum-dipping —the saturation of the cord plies in a vat of liquid gum —thus coating each cord and virtually eliminating internal heat and friction. Another is Firestone air bag curing, with its 200 pound pressure, which places every cord accurately and equalizes the tension. Uy blending the rubbers of different plantations and types, ana by tempering it before mixing, Firestone men add still more mileage. Many cord tires are good—a few are better—Firestone users say one is best Those who have already experienced Firestone mileage, have stopped shopping and experimenting—they have made these cordi standard equipment. Investigate your friends' success with Firestone Cords —and buy yo-- next tire accordingly.

The vein runs from ;S0 to 137 feet in width, the center seeming to carry the highest values, and getting better with depth. The lowest sample, 37 feet below the lowest level, showed more than *l oii. Instead of being a small high grade producer, it is an immense low grade mine, with possibilities almost unlimited. The same vein runs to the Rossland camp, and on this vein have been located the Michigan, Ti tanic (Valley Dew), Ida May, and others, which tried to reach the ore bodies through long tunnels, but never completed the tunnels. The First Thought's tunnel went only 70 feet, westward to reach the vein, and the ore can be quarried in great quantities. All workings are in ore, and there are 40,000 tons of ore on the dump. Last summer the present stockholders had a careful test made of tin mine, and 117 samples were taken in all workings 80 that they might leant just what the property was. The average result showed $10.27. Lots of ore has been shipped whirl ran $25 to $40, and there is more / this to be mined. Iru r the old method of tramming and noighting, the cost of mining, tram :.nd putting ore on board cars was .15 a ton. Freight was $7.60. Unde the proposed method, mining will ' -t 50 cents a ton, and treat ment 1.75 in the 100-ton mill, or $1.50 the 300-ton mill is later in stalle.i. This mine has at different times been visited by the big mining engineers of the country. Howard Bancroft, U. S. geologist, quoted this as being the biggest gold property in the state. Chas. E. Weaver, dean of the mining school of the ' U. of W., was there several times, at one time for two weeks, and made a full report. Prof. Thompson, dean of mining at W. S. C.,used to bring \ his classes to the mine, and he was the one who advised a 500-ton mill on account of the magnitude of the ore body. He considered it a won derful property. Resumption of operations will mean considerable to this county, and will also mean other attempts to reach the vein by other companies which I holt', claims north and south.
