WINNIPEG, Aug. 22. More than 1100 applications for divorce have been
tiled here for hearings when the court opens in September. The majority
are from soldiers who have returned from overseas.
Arrangements for the construction of
a Town Hall are being undertaken by
the Stewart Citizens' Association. The
Stewart Land Co. has offered ibe
northeast corner of Fourth and Victoria streets, which would be an excel
lent location. The company will donate
this corner and agree to deed it to the
city when incorporated. It is understood that efforts will be made at once
to raise sufficient money to put up a
building which will be a general meeting place for not only the Citizens' Association but the Portland Canal Pros-
p ctors' Association and other bodies.
Toe place would be large enough to
hold dances in. The Mineral Display
could alao be placed there.
Stewart at present is lacking in a
piace for the holding of public meeting!-, dances, and other gatherings.
The schoolhouse and the Bank of Commerce buildings have been used on occasions.

STEWART, B. C, AUG. 22, 1919
Banking institutions are overlooking
an opportunity here. For any bank
which starts now there is a splendid
apportunity. The business is here to
the bank that gets in first. All a bank
would need to start here would be the
customary books and something to put
the money in. Premises and fixtures
are here. The lack of local banking
facilities is one of the great drawbacks.
What banking is done is with
establishments in Prince Rupert, Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle and Ketchikan. The whole of the business would
no doubt go to the bank first to establish a branch in Stewart. Any progressive community requires banking
facilities, and especially a mining community. During the boom Stewart had
two banks. Conditions are different
now and instead of the mushroom development of early days there is a
steady, substantial growth that has
followed development of the mines.
Conditious would now seem to be ideal
for banking.   Several mining companies
are operating and others are about to | PORTLAND CANAL NEWS
start. Business houses and individuals
are all doing well. Wages are high
and workers scarce. It is estimated
there are some 700 of a population in
the district.

DOLLY VARDEN

Steady Shipments of Ore Soon
t6 be Made from Famous Property on Alice Arm���Railway
Will Haul Other Ore as well.
[
STEWART   LOCAL   NOTES
George A. Fraser of the Stewart
Drug Store is expected to return from
Victoria the latter part of this month.
Shipments   of ore from   the   Dolly
Varden mine to the dock  are to commence at once.   The   tram  connecting
the mine  with the railway  has  been
completed.   The railway should prove
a great boon to the  Alice Arm   section
as under the terms of the charter  it is
a common carrier and  must  take ore
from other mines as well as the Dolly
Varden.    Under the terms of the charter also it must replace  the trail as it
used the old one for right of way.   As
a common carrier the line differs from
the Copper River railway of the Gug-
genheims in Alaska  which  apparently
ruined a  great copper  district by  not
being a common carrier.
William McLean who owns the David
Copperfield property adjoining the
Dolly Varden on the south has crosscut
the ledge 38 feet showing high grade
silver sulphides.        ,
Miles Donald who is again operating
La Rose has brought in samples that
go 1000 oz. silve r,
On the Climax group rich ore has
been struck on the hanging wall. The
property looks very promising.
The Last Chance, belonging to Archie McPhail and under bond, is looking
bigger with every day's work.
The North Star has $300,000 worth
of commercial ore on the dump, it is
estimated. It is expected to be one of
the early shippers of the district
Mr. and Mrs. Will A. Barnes of the
Vancouver Daily Province left for

week here.

Value of Gold.
The market value of gold for industry and the arts is already very far
...  over the coinage value  here,  but  in
leLLk
^pGermany the position is much  more
From April 7 to May 26 the
price of gold In Germany for the Jew
elry trade was 250 per cent, of the
coinage standard of 2,790 marks per
kilo���say, 6,975 marks per kilo. The
Rlchsbank has now raised the price
