Owing to the fact that they did
not advertise their intention, for
a period of six weeks before the
House met, Lawrence & Workman have been  unable  to  get
their bill  for* a  franchise  for
water, light and power  for  the
town of Stewart, before the Legislature.
Nothing further along this line
an be done this year, unless, as
suggested  by  the government,
the town becomes incorporated,
In which  case   they  could  put
[heir proposition up to the people
iirect.
Lawrence and Workman, through the
columns of this paper, wish to thank
the citizens of Stewart for their support and interest in the matter, and
state that it is their intention to do all
in their power ;to obtain light, water
and telephone service for the town of
Stewart.

Ore Shipment
Carrying 52 passengert and an
exceptionally heavy cargo, the
John arrived Sunday evening
riding so low in the water that
people on shore thought the ship
had met with an accident. There
were very few "round-trippers
aboard, a large portion of the
passengers being residents of
the district who were returning
from temporary pleasure and
business trips, or leaving the
stagnation of Outside cities to
participate in the greater opportunities offered in a young, growing mining camp. In addition
there were a number of newcomers who expect to make their
homes here. The passengers
report that the rush to the north
is already exceptionally heavy,

General R. G. Edwards Leckie
has recently secured an option
from W. W. Rush and Arthur
Bagg on their claims Columbia,
Evening Sun, Sentinel and Salient, known as Columbia Group,
also Excelsior and Eagle, known
as the Excelsior Group. Both
groups are situated on the middle
fork of Glacier creek, eight miles
from Stewart.
According to the terms of the
option a considerable amount of
development work is to be undertaken this season, to commence
not later than June 1, on the
Columbia Group, and on the Excelsior work is to be commenced
on or before July 15. Mr. Rush
will superintend the work.
While the option covers both

spending $10,000 in development
work the purchasergnvish to drop
one group and retain the other,
they may do so, upon making to
the vendors a substantial cash
payment on Decemder31; 1921.

.   Light and Water
The news this week that Stewart will not this year
have electric light and water-is certainly a disappointment, for it is difficult to find two things that Stewart requires more than light and water; water particularly,
not only for domestic purposes, for which it is greatly
required, the present system in vogue being far from
satisfrctory or healthful, but also for fire protection.
While Stewart last year was singularly fortunate, as
far as fires were concerned, there is no guarantee that
dinag thi year 1921 our luck in this regard will be as
goc^. When one stopy lo consider tbat Canada's fire
!o*>s for the year 1920 was ever twenty seven million
dollars, which figures out to $17.10 per family, and this
loss in the vast majority of cases in places where fuere
were up-to-date fire fighting appliances, one realizes,
aside entirely from the convenience that light and water
would be, what it would have meant to Stewart to have
had the application of Lawrence and Workman granted.
Government Control
Premier Oliver is to be congratulated upon his motion in the House to the effect that the Lieutenant-
Governor submit the Government Liquor Control Bill to
the legislature, and in so doing make the measure one
introduced by the legislature, instead of a straight government or party affair; also for his appeal *for the cooperation of the members of the house, in order that
the best possible legislation might be evolved. His appeal for their advice ��md assistance is sound in principle
and is no reason why any private member should refuse
to place the interest of the people before his allegiance
to Party. Mr. Oliver's plan is not a confession of weakness or incapability upon the part of the government, it
is an honest effort to obtain the enactment of a law that
will best interpret the will of the majority, and at the
same time be in every detail as far as is possible to the
best interest of the Province as a whole.
The Premier's suggestion that the bill should be so
drafted as to guarantee to the Province a fair and reasonable profit should meet with the approval of every fair
minded citizen, though possibly there will be those who
will object, yet it is safe to say that if such people are
tax payers in the community, that they will not voice
their objections very loudly, particularly in northern
B. C, when they learn that it ia possible that each municipality will receive fifty per cent of such profit for expenditure upon needed public works within the district.
Bert Kergin's recent remarks in the legislature upon
the liquor question were certainly short, sharp and to the
point, and there is no doubt that he interpreted to the
house the desires of his constituents better in these few
words than if he had spoken for an hour. No one can
deny after this that Mr. Kergin knows and understands
his constituents.

The broad outlines of the Government liquor control law|were given by
Premier Oliver in the legislature last
week in opening the debate on a motion to ask the Lieutenant-Governor to
I submit a bill providing for the Govern-
| ment salt- of liquor.
The administration of the act, the
Premier announced, would be' in the
hands of a commission which will be independent, non-partisan, but answer-
a'jle to the government for the proper
carryingoutof their duties.
Other provisions of the bill would
provide for the abolition of bars and
saloons and the total prohibition of the
sale of liquor to persons under 21 years
of age.
Liquor stores are to be limited to the
larger centers of population and the
permit system will be used, the permits to be revocable where the holder
is guilty of abuses or personal excesses.
Under the new law the liquor is to be
sold at a moderate price to yield a reasonable profit to the government.
The commission will be given power
to draw up and impose regulations from
time to time for   the   proper enforcement of the act.
Illicit liquor buying will   be   made   a

are to receive fifty per cent of all fines
imposed under the act in their respective districts.
Bert Kergin, of Atlin, in discussing
the question, shortly but emphatically
emphasized the sentiments of his constituents on the subject of liquor control. He said the peopls of that riding
"want their liquor free aa water, of
good quality, and in goodly measure."
He said in connection with the drafting
of the liquor measure he was not sent
by his constituents to attend any tem-
terance convention.
