of the town.
MANN'S   TOWNSITE   ON   MARKET
Negotiations, which have been under way for sometime,
have recently been completed whereby District Lot 443 will
soon be placed on the market. This property, which was subdivided some years ago into town lots by Sir Donald Mann and
associates, lies immediately east of the railway tracks, and
extends from a point near the mouth of Bear river, north to
beyond the station.
By the making of these several hundred lots available, at
very low prices to the homese. kers of the Portland Canal, the
size of the town of Stewart will be materially increased.
While the actual details have not yet been worked out, it
is safe to say that this will be the cheapest property ever put
on the market in this district, either on the British Columbia
or Alaska side, for which an indefeasible title can be given.
lt is anticipated that the prices will be such that, with the
developments that are to take place up the Bear river valley
next season, practically assuring a railway within the next two
years or so, the bulk of this property will be sold in a very
short time. H. W. M. Rolston of Stewart has been appointed
local agent for the company, and expects to receive plans and
details of price in the very near future.

BOND PROPERTY
GLACIER CREEK
Claims Situated Close to
Stewart Acquired by Financially Sound Interests
Very Promising Prospects
The Ruth and Francis property, owned by J. Nesbitt and
A. Archie, of Stewart, was this
week bonded to influential parties. It being too late in the
season to accomplish much in the
way of development, nothing
will be done to next spring, when
it is understood a progresive development program will be put
into effect.
This property, which consists
of five claims, is well situated on
the north fork of Glacier creek,
about three and one-half miles
from the Bear river wagon road,
or a total distance of from 8 to 9
miles from tidewater at Stewart.
After leaving the wagon road
the claims and the camp thereon
are reached by a good horse trail,
three and one-half miles in
lenJ-th.
Considerable development work
has already been done by the
owners, consisting of several

GEOGRAPHICAL   POLITICS
THE controversy between Progressives
who desire to "broaden out" and the
United farmers of Ontario who remain
closs-conscious, is brought to a point by
Mr. Morrison, the organizer of the United
Farmers. Speaking in Frontenac a short
time ago, he drew the political line sharply
between city and country, between farmers
and people of all other vocations. To the
Frontenac farmers he said: "You are opposed to urban residents, for your ideas
and economic principles are just the oppo-
posite of those held by city residents, and
you might just well try to mix oil with
water."
Come to look at it this is startling
traveler of Juvenual laughs at the highwayman.
Lloyd George is a solicitor, and never
had a great professional income like some
of his former colleagues, as Mr. Asquith,
Lord Birkenhead, Sir John Simon and
Lord Carson. Nevertheless, he is secure
from poverty, so that he is simply giving
up the opportunity to double his income
after retirement. Lloyd George is making
the same use of the proceeks of his forthcoming book as Ralph Connor is said to
have made of the income of his latest
volume, and Canon Scott of his war reminiscences.
WHERE POINCARE FAILS
IT is evidently a good idea for Britain
to leave the reparations initiative with
France for the time being.   M. Poincare
is an excellent critic and a fine advocate of
the rights of his people. But he has never shown
himself great in action. As war president he gave
Clemenceau his own way. There is now no
Clemenceau to prepare a program and carry it
through. The premier wins high approval in
France when he makes strong declarations, but
strong declarations will not drag reparation money
from Germany. So far M. Poincare may claim a
large share in th-- overthrow of Briand the abrupt
close of the Cannes meeting, the block of the
Genoa conference, the failure of the London conference, and the ineffectiveness of the Hague
meeting. These are negative triumphs. Europe
waits for him to start something.
TOM   MOORE   AGAIN
ELECTED for the fifth time president
of the Dominion Trades and Labor Congress, Tom Moore occupies in Canada a
position   somewhat  similar  to  that  of  Samuel
doctrine.    It implies that there is no right Gompers  in   the  United States.   Capitalist and
and wrong, no just and unjust, no wise or j employers do not find either of them lacking in
unwise general policy. It can hardly be true (aggressiveness.   Their economic doctrines seem
that a man is infallibly guided to right-!to the avera*e man- who is neither employer or

who live in town are inevitably led to error, But in the councils cf the Labor party he finds
injustice and foolishness.. Mr. Morrison's himself in conflict with extremists. In the Mon-
doctrine is undemocratic. It is the soviet treal conference last week he was one of those

FOR CHARITY
THE latest statement about Lloyd
George as an author vindicates him from
the charge of writing his memoirs for the
money that they will bring. Some person
made the discovery that if the i.��u,ot.o to
be paid to the author were all counted as
one year's earnings the treasury would
take nearly half of it as income tax. Lloyd
George might fairly claim that the proceeds would represent the earnings of more
than one fiscal year, which would greatly
reduce tne rate per cent. But as it appear* that he ioUnds to devote the whole
proceed!, tu some war charities, he can
laugh at the tax collector as the penniless
experiment. The plebiscite required a GO per
cent vote to authorize prohibitory legislation, and
the extra dry vote was a little under 50 per c�� ntg
Though large, wet majorities were given in the
cities the prohibitionists seem to have failed to
obtain the required 60 per cent even in the country
districts. The people cannot be charged with indifference as the vote polled is equal to about half
the total population.

Louis Reynolds, owner of the
Beverley group, situated across
the bay, a short distance from
tidewater, reports striking a
rich lead of high grade silver ore
and galena on that property.
Considerable stripping has been
done and a vein of ore, 40 feet
wide, uncovered. Stripping, for
about 40 feet along the vein, has
been done. Work on driving a
tunnel has commenced in order
to strike the ore body at depth
Some specimens of ore have been
taken from the property, and it
is very probable that it will
quickly develop into a snipping
mine, due to its close proximity
to tidewater.

The Natural Wealth of Canada
Grain
THE Northwest was a barren waste only forty-
odd years ago. Today, in a thousand-mile belt
across the three prairie provinces, is one of the greatest grain-producing areas in the world. For the year
1921 the total value of the wheat, oats, barley and
rye produced throughout Canada was estimated by
the Government at #432,984,750.
The Bank of Montreal has a service adapted to the
needs of the farmer and a system of branches reaching to all districts.

The flapper soon will be a thing
of the past.   Short skirts and the
display of legs has not  come  toi
stay.   In fact, at  outside   coast
cities-   we   are  told,  they are
rapidly returning to the swish of
long  skirts.     And   the   reason!
given for the rapid change is be-
cause    men   refuse   to   marry ]
scantily  garbed   girls.   And in j
the interest of matrimony���the
ultimate aim of every girl ���modern feminity is bundling up so iti
can again mystify man into a1
trip to the altar.
"When girls,   by  self-reveal-
ment,   cease   to be mysteriows,
men   no  longer   wish to marry
them," is the way Andrew Tri-
don, the famous French psychologist put it when asked te. analyze
the change of style back to long
skirts.    'Women    found    they
were matrimonially undesirable
and that there are things  that
attract men far more than semi-
nudity.   Clothes have long been
a secondary   characteristic   of
women, as men's interest wanee.
The flapper, therefore, to escape
spinsterhood, is returning to the
good old age  of  feminine mystery.    In the future, something
will be left to the imagination."
