Per­ I sons new to the ' Yukon would be surprised to see the vegetables, I grains and flowers which ore grown , successfully and also almost without much trouble. Potatoes, cabbage, turnips, cauli­ flower, parsnips, carrots, beets and 1 celery are grown, while hay, oats and grnins are grown for feed. A great deal of naLive hay al;o is har­ vested each year and it sometimes attains the height of from five to seven feet. Tomatoe~ and cucumbers are grown in large quantities in the Dawson greenhouses, Large bunches of flow­ ers are seen in every garden and frcnt yard.

A great deal of pork and beef is killed in the slaughterhouses annually. 'f-or tb'e , benefit of the public, while many individuals keep several hogs and i cows. Chickens also are common, and ' tresh eggs and chickens are on the market alt summer. Rabbits also are raised on a small scale. The farming industry is not· suffi­ . ciently developed to provide entirely enough vegetableil for home . con­ sumption, for . as yet a good deal of outside potatoes, etc" are imported. -But for all her drawbacks, the Yukon is coming to the front. ffhere is plenty of land to raise enough I vegetables for the entire territory, and for a much larger population than what she rlow has, I fully be­ I lieve that in the n ear future the Yukon will be an important posse!!- si on of Canada. .

J L-__ ~~~ __________________ ~ ____ ~ ________ ~ ______ ~ \ ' . \ The Ore Deposits The principal deposits of silvel'­ lead cres are those of Keno Hill, the Silver King, Lookout Mountain, Rambler Hill, Mount Cameron, and Stand-to Hill, and new . discoveries are reported from year to year. Gen­ erally speaking, these deposits are of a high grade argentiferous galena, having a gangue of siderite or limo­ nite, ma.nganite, pyrite, chakopyrite, blende. arsenopyrite and qua.rtz. They are occasionally enriched by such silver salts as pyargyrite, frei­ bergite or tetrahedrite. blende, limonite, ,and siderite, chal- :::::::::::::::::::::::::::==:::::::::='!::::::::::::;:::::~;;~;;;; eopyrite and quartz.

Keno Hill is a wedge­ shaped ri~ge lying between Light­ ning, Crystal and Ladue creeks. The ridge is about eight miles long by five miles wide. Its northern slope is rugged, even precipitous in places, while the southern slope is more gentle, being controlled by the dip of the strata. The rooks exposed consist of the sehists and gneisses described above cut by greenstones and smaller bodies of quartz por­ phyry and granite porphyry. Th principal workings are situated above timber line. The main veins ' Ot the hill strik'~ N. 30 degrees, E. to N: 40' degrees, ,E. magnetic, and dip at angles of 50 to 70 · degrees to the SQutlw a'.t. These veins are persistent for con- associated with them. I The occurrence at Stand-to Hill has not yet been examined by the .' writer • . but from information gath­ ered i~ has the same general fea.tures as the other occurrences. As it is impossible in an article of this description to give full \e- , ' ta.ils with regard to the deposits, the reader is referred for furtber in for­ mati ;(n I to the reports of tile geologi­ call survey. The occurrences already descrilaed and the facts that new dis­ coveries are continually being made show that a great deal of prospect­ ing is necessary before any real eEtimate of the value oj the Mayo area can' be made. Many of the de­ posits can be worked at· a profit, even under the present disadvantages of high cost of transportation and supplies. It seems aS5ured that means of communication will · be im­ proved as rapidly as the develop­ ments in the camP justify the out­ lay. and the prosepcts of seeing a permanent camp established at Mayo seem fairly bright.

J YUKON'S M. P. ON OUTLOOK fOR MAYO ~!"1;.- .. --r . (B,- Ueut.-Col. Alired Thompson, M.l'. Member of Parliament for Yukon.) The silver deposits at Keno Hill promise a new lease of life for the Yukon Territory which, with their .development, will enter upon tJie , aeeond stage of its industrial career. The prosperity of the past has been founded upon the mining of 1he plaeer gold and the experience gained in this work will be valuable :Io!' future operations based upon future discoveries which will no eoubt. be made from time to time, as well · as for the "working of the large areas of low grade gravels 0.1- ~eady known to exist in the Klon­ dike district. For the successful working of these gravels the cold water thawing gives !leat promise in that it will make it possible to work gravels which 4l()uld never be profitably mined -by the steam thawing process. The discovery of high grade orea ~n Keno Hill may bear the same relation to silver-lead mining in the Yukon that the rich plaeers of Eldo­ rado and Bonanza creeks did to the !Old mining Of the territory. The price of silver, too, adds a further impetus to the mining of the white metal. For years silver was 110 low in price that only the well developed and equipped mines could produce at a profit. Now, however, with silver selling) around a dollar an ounce and the price of lead above the average there is a great induce­ ment to develop silver-lead mines. Thus the new disooveries in the ter­ zitory are made at a most fortunate time • Th~ district of ~hich Keno Hill \b , s at present the center extends frotp Lookout mountain to Mount Cam­ eron. Between these two mountains are found the galena deposIts so far unoovered. These include Lookout Mountain, Galena Creek, Keno' Hill, Forbes Creek, or Stand-to Mountain, as it has been named; Rambler Hill, and Mount Gameron-a. large and very promising district. And no d.oubt there will be further discov­ eries made in a district so well mineralized as is this one. Keele's map, made years ago, give~ one an excellent idea gf the topog­ ;raphy and gross geoolgy of the coun­ try at the headwaters ef Mayo, .Ladue and McQuesten rivers and has proved a great aid to the pl'OS­ peclor. For the last two years Dr. Cock­ field has been making a more d ·~­ talled st1i.dy of the geology of the Dew district and his report of this year's work will be . availal le early JJ.ext spring {or the use of prospec­ tors next summer. It may be of interest w your read­ ers to kpow that plans were made a year before thc galena on Keno Hill was discovered to make a geological sun'ey of the Ogilvie Range from Mount Cameron to and including the Twelvemile. In faet, Dr. Cock­ field was engaged in this important work for the minister of mines last Sl'mmer when the new discoveries ~lP. Keno Hill were made. As soon 8S he has fmished the geology of the new district it is hoped that he will be able to continue his investi­ gations until the whole range be­ tween Mount Oameron and Twelve­ lnile has been covered. Dr. Cock field has alread y spent :some time in the Twelvemile region, but it seems certain that that dis­ trict warrants a more detailed exami­ nation l ecause of the deposits of galena ore known to exist there. The discoveries on Keno Hill and vicinity already made are of such a character as to warrant the govern­ ment in making ample provision for 'the development of the district. For this purpose money grants should be made to construct a first "lass wagon road from the Stewart 'river to the new camp. Some better means of communication by wire or radio should be provided without undue delay. And an assay offi::e 'lOhould be established so that pros­ peetors may have their assay made with 3S little dday as po!;sible. 'rlle reoording office, too, should be re- '~pened; and some jmprovements I made in river navigation sO that 8rrv ~bstruction to free navigation mny be overcome.

A NEW EXPLOSIVE-The war was tlJe lIIeans of great and valu8 .ble discoveries, particularly oue .)[ them the IJe W explosive- T HE T. N. T. EXPLOSIVE CALLED SABUL!TE SAFE EXPLOSIVE- Sabulite is an explosive that cannot be exploded by fire, friction, or ordinary shock, thus making it a safe explosive to handle. NON-FREEZING-SABULITF. does not contain any nitro-glycerine, Or any other liquid; therefore, it will not freeze, however low the tem­ perature may be, thus making it the ideal explosive for th€ Yukon and Alaska. ONE-THIRD OHBAPER-S'ABULlTE, stick for stick, is stronger than dynamite, and, being lighter in weight, each case has approximate'ly 25 per cent. more sticks to the case, 250 sticks of Sabulite against 185 Dynamite. ' NO NOXIOUS FUMES- SABULITE, after firing, no inconvenience is suffered by users, who are able to return to work immediately after the firing of shots, thus much time is saved, and blasting headaches and all discomforts from Nitro-G1ycerine Powders done away with. EXCLUSIVE AGENCY-We wish to announce that we have been appointed the exclusive agents for both the YUKON and ALASKA, and that next season-I 921-we will be able to supply all demands for this celebrated explosive. We had placed orders for shipment of SABULITE this season, but, due to a lack of Explosive Carriers coming to Skagway this summer, and a fire in one of the departments of the Coast Factory, prevented us from receiving a shipment before the closing of navigation. FURTHER INFORMATION- We shall be pleased .to furnish any furth€r 9ata about SABULITE. We have a supply of pamphlets on hand which we shall be pleased to forward to parties who m ay be interested in this new explo sive. TH E DA WSON HARDWARE CO.
