Hyder celebrated Independence Day in the manner which
has become traditional in the
U. S. A., with a variety of field
sports and a dince in the evening. Stewart residents, as a
matter of course, went over en
masse, and many representatives were there from the mines.
Old Jupiter Pluvius, who had
made rain all the day before and
part of the morning, let up before noon, so the program was
carried out without a hitch.
The festivities started with a
ball game between Hyder and

pass which Sir Donald Mann, as the result

In concluding this week's article we
will ask the farmers and press of the Peace
river country a few questions, and will at
the same time give the answers.
First of all, take a map of the northern portion of British Columbia and Alberta, measure the distance from .Fort
Saint John in the Peace River to Stewart,
and then from Fort Saint John to Edmonton. Both distances are found to be the
same.
The question to the Peace River farmer
w.���Where is your wheat when it is at Edmonton? The answer: At the commencement of
a long rail haul to tide water.
Question: Where would your wheat be if it
could be got to Stewart?
Answer: At tide water, with the markets of
the world open to it.
Question: What does this mean to the Peace
River?
Answer: The difference between a thickly settled, prosperous farming country, and one strangled and choked for want- of this shorter and
cheaper route���made by Nature the natural outlet^

THE PEACE RIVER PORT
L
 w	
GOOD
SERVICE   WITH   A   SMILE
P
IN DEALING last week with the subject of a sea port for the Peace River country we pointed out the fact that Hudson's
Hope is only 375 miles from Stewart by a
feasible route explored by J. 0. Dwyer
oyer 20 years ago, and how he at that time
stated that the head of the Portland Canal
was the logical terminal for any railway
from the Peace River across northern British Columbia. There was no Stewart in
those days.
Mr. Dwyer made this statement for the
reason that such a route is by far the
shortest and cheapest to build. His suggestion and recommendation in this regard
was given scant attention, and was almost
lost in the masses of data at Ottawa, for
the simple reason that at that time the Alaska boundary question had not been settled, and the U. S. A. claimed that the
boundary commenced from the beach at the
head of the Canal and ran up the center
of the Bear river valley for some miles. In
other words the present business section of
Stewart was claimed by the U. S. government, and as a matter of fact was first
staked for a homestead under U. S. laws.
This being the case, it was only natural
that the Canadian government would not
consider a recommendation that suggested
foreign territory for a terminal.
Conditions, however, have now chang
ed, and Alaskan territory does not reach
a point nearer than one and one-half miles
from the head of the canal. This, therefore, makes Stewart, at the head of the canal, an All-Canadian Port, with an ideal
townsite, ample dockage space, plenty of
deep, almost fresh water; a harbor protected from winds, with plenty of anchorage,
and ideal grain elevator sites; a deep water
passage to the open ocean, free of ice the
year 'round, and capable of taking the
largest ocean-going vessels.
This ia Stewart, 375 miles from Hud
son's Hope, and 958 milea from Edmonton.
People who have not studied the question have stated that it is very difficult to
get from the Finlay river over to the Naas
valley.
It has been proven that this is not the
case. Mr. Dwyer, aa ��� result of three
years' explors-liaa. mentions two routes,
north of which there ara still more. Gun-
a-noot. the Hazelton Indian, who in this
same country eluded the police for 14 years
told the writer that there are five or six
DISTRICT'S   RAPID  GROWTH
Placing on the Stewart run the Steamship
Cardena, giving a weekly service between this
town, Vancouver and way points, marks another
mile-post in the progress now bi ing made by the
Portland Canal district. This is brought home to
residents of the district with particular force by
the fact that the new ship provides Stewart with
a semi-weekly mail service.
Considering the situation, it is interesting to
note that there are now five steamship companies
operating into Portland Canal. First of these, the
pioneer company, the old G. T. P. boats, now under the Canadian Merchant Marine, and affiliated
with the Canadian National Railways; (The old
Camosum is held in grateful memory by pioneers
of the camp;)' next comes the Coastwise Steamship
and Barge Company, and the Granby Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company, with their lines
of ore carriers ealling at the Stewart dock; then
the Alaska Steamship Company, calling at both
Hyder and Stewart; and last, but not by any
means least, the Union Steamship Company, with
the arrival, on Monday last, of the new ship, the
Steamship Cardena.
When it is remembered that the last four
companies have come on this run during the last
year and a half, some idea may be gathered of
the rapid growth now being made by the district
as a whole.

DOMINION DAY CELEBRATION
The Dominion Day Celebration held at Stewart on Monday last was in every respect a marked
success and reflected great credit upon the committee in charge.
From the parade in the morning until the
wind-up of the dance in the evening, everything
ran smoothly, and a large number of people from
Hyder and the mines joined with the residents of
the town fn making the day one of the best
for many years. A feature of the occasion was
the manner in which a large number of live wires
from the Premier took hold and helped the festivities along.   They were everywhere in evidence.

made there. He found the proi -

THE POWER OF SUGGESTION
A new device for saving passengers trouble has been adopted by the Dining-Car Service of
the Canadian National Railways.
Throughout the coaches on all
trains to which Dining and Cafe
Cars are attached, little dodgers
are now distributed before each
meal, with several suggestions
for a suitable combination of
dishes. These dodgers are printed in both English and French.
This gives the patron of the Din-
ing-Car a little time to decide
upon what he will order later,
and eliminates the tiresome necessity of studying a large menu
card. If the traveller is accustomed to set a limit of price upon
his meals, there is no need whatever to exceed it. The prices
for a complete menu for Break-
fast, Dinner and Supper are most
moderate, ranging from 35 cents
to $1.25. Having made his choice
according to pocket-book and
appetite, upon entering ihe Din-
ing-Car, the travt-ller will find
himself served as quietly and
satisfactorily as he would be in
any well-appointed home.
