properties with a view to investment
and Incidentally enjoying a vacation in
Many of these people wore already in
terested in Killen Warner Stewart prop
erties, and others come to investigate
And invest if conditions were found fav
orable. The members of the party with
out exception express themselves highly
pleased with the situation and it is un
derstood that heavy investments havo
been made by them.
It might be remarked in this connec
tion that there have been more visitors
in the district at the instance ol the
various mining firms within the past
week or two than at any time this sea
son, and it is to bu doubted if there ever
has been a time In the history of the
camp when investments were bo lively.
It is to bo noted, too, that among the
hundreds who have lately come to in
vestigate mining conditions here, a soli
tary exception of one dissatistied is yet
to be found. Among the visitors are
prominent mining engineers and mining
men of experience from other districts.
