\ert Kergin Speaks on
the Needs of This Riding
Says the District Needs More Roads
Our member of the legislature,
Bert Kergin, stood on his feet the
ither day, (October 20th. to be
aorreot) and told Mr. John Oliver
■rnd the government in no uncertain
bones the possibilities of this vast
riding and what we needed up
here. He said in part: The crying
need of the district is roads, and he
pointed to the fact that muoh is
being said at present about a
possible war between the United
States and Japan. In such an
event his district would be practically cut off. What was imperatively required, was a highway
connecting the Atlin district with
the rest of Canada, one from Haz-
elton to Whitehorse to connect
with the trans-provincial highway
in the south.
While Atlin is essentially a mining, country .there are^ large areas
of agricultural land. In the Naas
River Valley there was the largest
area of fine land to be found anywhere else in the province. He
asked the government to look into
the possibilities of the Naas River
Country, where tobacco and corn
can be grown and there is not
today even a cplonization road in
that section, and the result was
that there are now only thirteen
sellers in the Valley. A road is
imperatively required if the land is
to bo settled.
Mr. Kergin advocated apolicy of
wage insurance to protect workers
in industries, declaring that there
had been cases where companies
had defaulted in wage payments.
He suggested that in cases of
failures there should be an arrange
ment by the government for taking
an assignment of the pay-roll and
collecting later through the attorney general's department.
Eulogizing on the scenic attractions of this district, Mr. Kergin
said 'You talk about Vancouver
Island and you sometimes get as
far north as »Prince Rupert, but
you never hear of your tourist
associations down here mentioning
Atlin,' the district par excellence
for scenery, game and natural re-
cources and the most consistent
gold producer in Canada.
He referred to the Premier mine
as an example of the mineral wealth
of the district and declared that
Anyox is the only copper smelter
in Canada that is working today,
and that it is one of the three on
the North American Continent
thojb. is in operation. Atlin he
averred is one of the greatest assets
the province posseses and it would
be to the interests of the people
of the other portions of the province
to get acquainted' with this district which must bring in all its
supplies from the outside and
therefore is a matter of importance
to the business interests of the
Referring to the P. G. E. Railway, he described it as a wonderful piece of work, something the
people of the province agreed to
and gave the then government a
mandate to proceed with its construction. Now the people have
changed their minds about the
road, but the government is bound
to see the project through he

News of the Naps Valley
Why a Road is Needed
Views of the Settlers on Proposed Road
Charlie Vetter recently purchased a nanny goat to add to the stock
on his flourishing ranch by the
Seaks River.
He will have to erect a nanny
proof barrier round his tobacco
orchard in future, because the
animal chews. '
Charlie had a great crop of black
currants and strawberries this
year, also some of the finest fall
wheat ever seen, not to mention
the variety and profusion of vegetables grown by the united efforts
of himself and his wife and daughter, all of them being most enthusiastic gardeners.
The place looked beautiful indeed,
with its wealth of produce, much
of which was rotting on the ground,
due to lack of transportation
facilities. We shall have to step
on the tail of Mr. Government (as
the Indian calls it) and let' him
know we are here. We have
heard lots of noise, such as "Back
to the land" and all the side dishes
too, but we are not able to go back
to the land in the lot adjoining the
city of Vancouver or Victoria, nor
yet the sunny Okanagan (much as
we might enjoy being so 'close to
the movies,) because the cost of
land is a little, just a little out of
reach and Father fell down and
broke our step-ladder. That's why
we are here, on land surveyed and
thrown open for settlement by Mr.
Government's "Back to the land"
policy. Under the circumstances
and the blue sky above, there is
one question that forcibly presents
itself. Is the government sincere
or hypocritical.? If the government
is sincere, then there is every opportunity for a practical demonstration by building a good road
into' the rioh and fertile Naas
Valley,' providing an outlet for
produce by way of Alice Arm and
Anyox, at the same time renewing
the confidence and goodwill of the
people of this whole district.
A good permanent road is a
necessity, something that can be
used, not a half finished trail such
as can be seen in many parts of
this beautiful province. There is
no time like the present, as there
are many unemployed who could
be given work on such projects,
relieving congestion in the cities
and doing good all the way

Basket Social Held

One of the most successful social
events ever held in the history of
the camp, took place on Friday,
October ,21st, at "the Alice Arm
Hotel. : It was a basket social and
was: held under the auspices of the
Local Council of Women. Mrs. J.
Wheatley proved to be a very
efficient auctioneer, the highest
price obtained for any one basket
was $10.00 which was an excellent
imitation of a pile-driver. The
total amount realized from the sale
of baskets was $129.00.

Roads and Trails.
It is most gratifying to the citi
zens of the Atlin riding that the
local member of the legislature,
Mr. H. F. Kergin, has already
brought to the notice of the government the argent necessity of
building more roads in this northern part of the province, In his
speech in the House, on October
20, he brought to the notice of the
government the fact that the famed,
rich and spacious Naas River
Valley had no outlet whatever,
and the result was that at the
present time the population of this
valley comprised about thirteen
settlers. Now that the facts of the
case have been brought to the
notice of the government it is up to
them to investigate the possibilities
of the valley and provide an
outlet for the settlers as quickly as
possible. If the government is
sincere in its "Back to the land"
policy it will not hesitate one
minute in surveying a route to
tidewater. The people of this
district do not want the government to spend a cent of the public
money unless such expenditure is
justified, and if the government can
show us where they can open up
a larger and more fertile tract of
land than the Naas River Valley,
for the same amount of money, in
this district, we are willing that
they should do so.
Mr. Kergin has on various
occasions pointed out the phenom-
inal growth of the north country
during the past fifteen years, and
we venture to say that if the
government of the province had
built more good roads—roads that
an auto truck could run over—
instead of goat trails, that the
population of the northern part of
the province would be treble what
it is today. The permanent
growth of northern B. C. depends
entirely upon the number of miles
of good roads built each year, and
it is the duty of everyone to help
bring pressure to bear on the government to build a good road
system in the north, similar to that
in the southern part of the province.
We are rapidly out-growing the
foot trails scattered throughout the
country and it is time the government started to build permanent
roads and also link up the different
systems already built.
Naas Valley Notes
Continued from Page 1
Mr. A. F. Priestly is back in the
Valley and has a good stock of
provisions in his store for the
winter trade. He says he is not a
bit peeved to find himself home
again and the country down south
has nothing on the Naas after all.
Frank Hoeft has built a fine
woodshed for Mrs, Frank and she
says it is just dandy.
Gus Weber is going into the
chicken business (feathered variety)
and has erected a capacious house
for the animals.
Everyone had a large crop as
usual. Some large apples of good
quality were grown by Stewart,
Hoeft and Spencer on their respective ranches.
The Wynes family of Brook
Farm have increased their stock
this season, and have the nucleus
of a thriving cattle business.
Mr. Pat Calnin has also more
stock this year, and is ably assisted
by his daughter who came up from
the States, and she is a most
enthusiastic rancher.
Charlie Gordon who came over
from Alice Arm last spring, has a
Cabin built and nineteen and a half
acres under cultivation. He has a
quarter section of 160 acres, sixty
acres of which is ready for the
Mr. John Nelson has been very
busy this summer working his
various holdings and curing hay
for his stock.
George Wohlschlegel, assisted by
Denny Jackson and Alfred Wynes,
has been building an addition to
his "Wee Hoose" and that doggone
little bird has been 'blathering
round again, and this time it
whispers some sound like Bride
and Wedding Bells. We hope its
a truthful little bird, because we
like to hearken to the musical
tinkle. Three arty cheers; Oorah!
Wottoh!! Ooray!!! etc.
Nels Olsen sent over a sack of
vegetables this week, to Alice Arm,
to show the miners of that town
what the valley is capable of producing in the way of garden truck,
Many of the early settlers will
return to the valley as soon as the
government brings forth the key
of the situation and unlocks the
door, by building a good road in
from Alice Arm, thus carrying out
a sound policy of necessary development, instead of converting the
same into a mere fallacy.
Pat Daly has Settled
with Premier Co.
It is reported that the Premier
Mining Company has settled with
Pat Daly. The sum paid to stop
the action is said to be $35,000,
and part of the settlement money
has already been paid.. Pat was
seeking to recover a one-fifth
interest in the Premier mine, and
suit was filed for the sum of
Heavy ice was running in the
Yukon Eiver, on October 22, and
it will soon be frozen over. The

More than forty mining properties of the Stewart district will be
represented at the American Mining Congres, to be held in Chicago.
The people of Stewart raised more
than the necessary amount of
money to defray expenses.

The substantial progress of the Mining Industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures which show the value of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive,
$94,547,241 for five year*, 1896-1900, $57,605,967; for five years, J901-1905, $96-509,968; for five years, 1906-

Production During last ten years, $331,995,328
Lode-mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and not 20 per cent of the Province has been
even prospected; 300,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.

The Vital I
"What we have to decide is thisr-Are we going to continue the protective
system of this country or are we not ? That is the question and. that is
the whole question. And the great, big, necessary thing is that every rater
in this country from the Yukon to Halifax knows that this is the question
he or she is deciding when he or. she votes in this great contsst."
THE vital issue in the coming election—
in fact, the only issue—is the Tariff,
and to every clear thinking Canadian
it should be readily apparent that a Protective Fiscal Policy is absolutely essential
to stability, progress and development.
Every important country in the world
upholds Protection as an essential economic principle. Even Great Britain—so
long the stronghold of Free Trade—has
now adopted laws that constitute. Protection of the most effective kind. In fact,
the present policy among most nations is
towards raising their tariff walls, not lowering them. In the face of these facts it
would be suicidal for Canada to do exactly
the reverse and discard the fiscal system
which has been responsible for its progress
during the past forty-three years.
Free Trade would mean death to Canadian Industry. It would also result in
the immediate closing down of Canadian
plants of foreign firms, with consequent
additional unemployment. There are to-day
650 American factories alone in Canada.
Similar proposed ventures would be abandoned.   New capital would refuse to come
to a Country lacking adequate protection
and present industrial enterprise would be
promptly strangled by foreign competition.
The preservation of the home market by a
Reasonable Protective Tariff is vital to
both city dweller and agrarian alike—now
as never before. More capital is urgently
needed for the development cf Canada's
enormous resources, which will result in
a lessening of unemployment and an increased population. More work and more
workers will produce an enlarged home
market for products of both city and farm,
and the exodus of Canadian men and
women—and the dollars they earn—will
be precluded.
The United States has slammed her trade
door in the face of Canadian farmers by
adopting the Fordney Bill, and the former
is consequently now even more dependent
upon the home market than in the put.
Yet Crerar asks you to destroy that home
market by voting for Free Trade.
King's policy—if he has one—will result
in the destruction of the Tariff.
Meighen stands Four square for Reasonable Protection—Protection for all
the people—and asks for an overwhelming mandate to give both industry
and agriculture that assurance which will spell prosperity for all. Individual prosperity depends upon National prosperity.. Your personal interests
and Canada's very existence hang upon your vote.
