nd gave the colonel a very attentive and at the same time en-
lusiastic hearing.
H. Gibson, being chairman,
ppned the meeting with a few
chosen words, pointing out
ow hard the colonel had worked
nr the district in   the  past and
this will be that the west in 1924
will be represented in the house
by a number of seats based on
the census of 1911, which is a
gross injustice.
The speaker than proceeded to
outline the work he had accomplished since his return to Can-
hat he had accomplished.    Forjada,   pointing  out   how he had
lis reason he believed that Colonel Peck deserved the suffrag
f the people of Stewart. After
hese remarks he introduced the
andidate, who was the speaker
f the evening.
Colonel Peck, then taking the
oor, proceeded to give an ac-
ount of his stewardship while
^presenting the constituency in
he last parliament. Commences: from the beginning Colonel
eck spoke of the days immedi
broken, after a hard fight, the
monopoly of the cannerymen on
the fishing grounds, and thereby
opened these fields to the individual purse scien and gill net
fishermen. While on this question the colonel dealt with the

WE wish to draw the attention of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Steamship Company, to the fact that, it would be well for
them to instruct the officers of the s.s, Prince John to show
their patrons in this port at least some consideration. And at
the same time dispel the idea that these men appear to retain,
that when the public are paying for freight brought to or
shipped from this port, that they are paying for service and
that the officers of the Prince John are doing them no favor
whatsoever by handling it.
During the visits of the Prince George and Prince Albert
every ^courtesy possible was shown the traveling and
and shipping public by the officers of these boats. But the
moment the John appears on the run with a consignment of
local freight there is trouble. Trouble that could be avoided
if the officers of the John were made to realize that }he
shipping public are paying for service, and that it is this
money that pays their wage9.
The manner in which freight was handled by the John at
the time of her last trip into this port was a disgrace to any -
shipping company. Stuff was dumped on the wharf in the
darkdess any and every old way, thereby causing great inconvenience to every local shippor. Not only were the shortages appalling, but the packages that did come off were
handled so roughly that many were broken, and in some
cases the contents at least partially damaged. When these
matters were pointed out to the ship's officers varying replies
of arrogant indifference were the result. Their main object
appeared to be to get the stuff off the boat regardless of the
condition in which the shipper received it, or for the matter
of that, whether he received it at all or not. If the ship's
watchword had been: "Get the stuff off, and let us get
back, to blazes with the shippers;" no greater indifference
could have been shown.

The Hospital dance held in'the
Stewart hotel last Friday evening  was  a huge success, both
from the point of view of it being
an   entertainment   and   from a
financial standpoint.     Mrs. Fred
Young, who was in charge of the
refreshments, proposed   a   very
pleasant idea for the raising of
money, by having the ladies of
the town bring   baskets,   which
were  put  np  for  auction,  the
highest bidder getting   the   basket, and the lady who put it up
to have supper with him.    The
idea proved very popular,   every
basket being sold,  the majority
bringing $5 each.    As there are
a surplus of men in Stewart, what
were known as bachelor baskets
were also made up, the purchaser
of   these   had   no   partner with
which   to   share   it, but even at
that they brought an average of
$2 apiece.    By this method   and
with the sale of tickets $197 were
raised for the hospital.   A feature   of   the   evening   was   the
music, supplied by the   Stewarti
orchestra,   which   having   been
added   to   by   Frank    Bowler's
drums, was exceptionally   good.

in town, opening a place of business here.
W. C. Black, a former resident
of Hyder and a partner of Ed
Jones in the boat business, came
up last week with his launch
from Beaton island, near the
south of the canal, and returned
Monday with a load of Jack Kain-
bert's effects. The latter is moving to the island to engage in
chicken raising and fishing.
Glacier Takes a Tumble
During the recent floods Ben
Lawrence was doing assessment
work on his properly up Glacier j
creek, and during that time about
100 yards of the glacier broke off
and fell into the creek, darning
it up for a whole day. Mr. Law-
rence says that some of the
pieces, were at least fifty feet,
thick. This glacier is receding
very fast, even under normal
conditions. Places that were all
ice 10 years ago are now open
rocks and mountain side. This
glade*, in this regard, is like all
others in the district.
Several persons are drowned
and houses are piled on the beach
by a eloudburst and flood and the
town is cut off from communication by wire, is the report that
came to Vancouver last Saturday
from Britannia Beach, according
to a brief message received by
the Government telegraph
through its lineman..
A cloudburst washed out the
fill at the mining town at 9
o'clock Friday night. A great
rush of water came down, carrying houses and debris to the
beach and piling it there. It cut
through the town, leaving a raging torrent through the two
sections.
It is reported that two separate
parts of the town are unable to
communicate with each other,
and therefore it is impossible to
arrive at any definite figures as
to the loss of life. It is feared
that there have been a number of
victims of the flood.
The lineman of the Government
telegraphs sent a message from
Whytecliff, where he had gone
by motor to report, and then
went back to endeavor to mend
the break, which is a wide one.
The line connects with Squamish
direct and then back to Britannia Beach by telephone, consequently both Squamish and the
Beach are cut off.
The first communication with
the place will be by the Union
Steamship boat Capilano. This
vessel left Vancouver with orders
to go through at full speed to
Britannia Beach.
Following the cloudburst during the night half the houses in
the town of Britannia were
washed down to the beach and a
number of residents were reported missing. Five doctors
and eight doctors were sent back
to the scene by the Capilano, and
they were accompanied by provincial constables.
Land Mark Moved
The Ocean View cabaret, recently purchased by W. R. Tooth,
was moved on Monday last to its
new sight in Hyder, B.C., where
Mr. Tooth will open it as an
hotel on Monday next. The move
was made by running the Premier scow under it on Monday's
high tide, and floating it down
over to Hyder, where on the following day's high tide it was
taken to within 30 feet of place,
from which point it was hauled
onto its new sight today. W. L.

and was carried out successfully. rom.��� canal mm. stewart. . c, fmbay. ocim-�� *����� ���"���

1920 show
AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $706,192,978
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in 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 years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for
five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years, 1906-1910, $125,-
534,474; for five years, 1911-1915, $142,072,603; for five years,
1916-1920, $189,992,725; for the year 1920, $35,543,084.
PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $331,995,328
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 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 pros-
peoting.
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.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of whieh is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

Essay on Geese
The following composition on
geese by a schoolboy in United
States: "Geese is a heavy set
bird with a tail on one side and
a head on the other. His feet is
set so far back on his running
gear that they nearly miss his
body. Some geese is ganders
and has a curl in his tail. Ganders don't lay or set. They just
eat, loaf and go swimming. If I
had to be a geese I would rather
be a gander. Geese do not give
milk, but give eggs, but for me
give me liberty or give me death.''

tie three spent the evening and
fext day in renewing old ac-
baintances, and held a meeting
i the Stewart hotel on Monday
Irening. which was followed  by
very enjoyable dance, after
Ihich the party left for Anyox
[id Alice Arm, on their return
i Prince Rupert. The meeting
fas remarkably well attended
(id gave the colonel a very at-
Intive and at the same time en-
Usiastic hearing.
[H. Gibson, being chairman,
bpnerl the meeting with a few
fell chosen words, pointing out
hw hard the colonel had worked
���r the district in the past and
Ihat he had accomplished. For
pis reason he believed that Col-
pnpl Peck deserved the suffrag
1 the people of Stewart. After
kese remarks he introduced the
[ndidate, who was the speaker
the evening.
I Colonel Peck, then taking thei tion
elections. It does not matter
which party gets in there will be
very little difference in the tariff;
for it is on the tariff that the
revenue of the country is based,
and our national debt is so colossal that no matter who composes the new government,' or
how much they wish to reduce
the tariff, they will not be able to
do so. I am running as an independent for the reason that I believe that no one party will after
the elections be sufficiently strong
enough to by themselves form a
government, and therefore some
form of coalition will have to be
formed, and as this is the case, 1
am convinced that I will he able
to do more for my constituents
as an independent than as a
member of some party that]is not
in power; and after all what you
want is some one who is going to
get results for you, I have
broken with the Meighen government fqr the reason that they
broke their word to the west by
hringing on an election before a
redistribution bill was put into
effect, thereby precluding the
west from their true representation in the house. The result of
this will be that the west in 1924
will be represented in the house
by a number of seats based on
the census of 1911, which is a
gross injustice.
The speaker than proceeded to
outline the work he had accomplished since his return to Canada, pointing out how he had
broken, after a hard fight, the
monopoly of the cannerymen on
the fishing grounds, and thereby
opened these fields to the individual purse scien and gill net
fishermen. While on this ques-
the colonel  dealt with the
EDITORIAL
THE  S. S.  PKINCE JOHN
WE wish to draw the attention of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Steamship Company, to the fact that, it would be well for
them to instruct the officers of the s.s, Prince John to show
their patrons in this port at least some consideration. And at
the same time dispel the idea that these men appear to retain,
that when the public are paying for freight brought to or
shipped from this port, that they are paying for service and
that the officers of the Prince John are doing them no favor
whatsoever by handling it.
During the visits of the Prince George and Prince Albert
every ^courtesy possible was shown the traveling and
and shipping public by the officers of these boats. But the
moment the John appears on the run with a consignment of
local freight there is trouble. Trouble that could be avoided
if the officers of the John were made to realize that Ihe
shipping public are paying for service, and that it is this '
money that pays their wages.
The manner in which freight was handled by the John at
the time of her last trip into this port was a disgrace to any -
shipping company. Stuff was dumped on the wharf in the
darkdess any and every old way, thereby causing great inconvenience to every local shippor. Not only were the shortages appalling, but the packages that did come off were
handled so roughly that many were broken, and in some
cases the contents at least partially damaged. When these
matters were pointed out to the ship's officers varying replies
of arrogant indifference were the result. Their main object
appeared to be to get the stuff off the boat regardless of the
condition in which the shipper rjoeived it, or for the matter
of that, whether he received it at all or not: If the ship's
watchword had been: "Get the stuff off, and let us get
back, to blazes with the shippers;" no greater indifference
could have been shown.

last boat.

The Hospital dance held inithe
Stewart hotel last Friday evening  was  a huge success, both
from the point of view of it being
an   entertainment   and   from  a
financial standpoint.     Mrs. Fred
Young, who was in charge of the
refreshments, proposed   a  very
pleasant idea for the raising of
money, by having the ladies of
the town bring  baskets,   which
were   put  tip  for  auction,  the
highest bidder getting  the   basket, and the lady who put it up
to have supper with him.   The
I idea proved very popular,  every
j basket being sold,  the majority
' bringing $5 each.   As there are
a surplus of men in Stewart, what
were known as bachelor baskets
were also made up, the purchaser
of   these   had   no   partner with
which   to   share  it, but even at
that they brought an average of
$2 apiece.    By this method  and
with the sale of tickets $197 were !
raised for the hospital.   A fea- \
ture   of   the   evening   was   the \

Several persons are drowned
and houses are piled on the beach
by a cloudburst and flood and the
town is cut off from communication by wire, is the report that
came to Vancouver last Saturday
from Britannia Beach, according
to a brief message received by
the Government telegraph
through its lineman*.
A cloudburst washed out the
fill at the mining town at 9
o'clock Friday night. A great
rush of water came down, carrying houses and debris to the
beach and piling it there. It cut
through the town, leaving a raging torrent through the two
sections.
It is reported that two separate
parts of tha town are unable to
communicate with each other,
and therefore it is impossible to
arrive at any definite figures as
to the loss of life. It is feared
that there have been a number of
victims of the flood.
The lineman of the Government
telegraphs sent a message from
Whytecliff, where he had gone
by motor to report, and then
went back to endeavor to mend
the break, which is a wide one.
The line connects with Squamish
direct and then back to Britannia Beach by telephone, consequently both Squamish and the
Beach are cut off.
The first communication with
the place will be by the Union
Steamship boat Capilano. This
vessel left Vancouver with orders
to go through at full speed ��� to
Britannia Beach.
Following the cloudburst during the night half the houses in
the town of Britannia were
washed down to tbe beach and a
number of residents were reported missing. Five doctors
and eight doctors were sent back
to the scene by the Capilano, and
they were accompanied by provincial constables.

CANADA will learn with a sense of
satisfaction that the people of this country
are to be represented at the Washington
conference by a former Prime Minister.
Sir Robert Borden will be highly acceptable to the people of the United States for
his understanding of the western point of
view and his influence with the government of the motherland. The representatives from the Dominions will be expected
to play an important part and their advice
will be invaluable to the gathering as a
whole. It is also gratifying to know that
the delegation from London will be appropriately equipped to deal promptly with
the various questions with which the empire at large is concerned.

British Columbians that things in this

fines was sufficient to pay the cost of enforcing the

While the case of Kamloops is unique at the moment there is nothing to suggest that the annual
returns from other municipalities will be different.
In any case there is an economic interest in the
figures.   They indicate that public morals have
improved under the present act although the police'
department has been reduced from a good paying'

NOT many people in British Columbia
experience anything in   the nature of a
thrill when they ponder over the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway and its annual drain upon the
public treasury. In the document presented to
the legislature recently there is no attempt to
juggle with the figures or present a picture which
does not exist. The statement of account indicates
that this undertaking represents an investment of
nearly forty million dollars which is exacting a
large annual interest charge without any sort of
accompaniment in the way of profit. On the other
hand the figures show that the operating expenses
of the line during the fiscal year dealt with were
something like three hundred and fifty-seven
thousand dollars in excess of the earnings of the

luesday, both highly elated with
e success of their operations in
e upper tunnel where they have
t through a five foot contact
sure vein that carries the same
oot of high grade copper and
eel galena ore showing on the
rface.
This vein was exposed during
e summer by means of open
U for a distance of 600 feet,
rrying a shoot of high grade
r the entire distance. In Sep-
mber a crosscut tunnel was
arted in order that the crew
gtt be working under ground
ray from the snow during the
inter. This tunnel has tapped
e vein at a depth of 58 feet,
ter being driven for 120 feet.
here encountered the vein has
width of five feet, about one-
ird of the ore being of shipping
ade, and the balance running
om $30 to $10 per ton, making
fine milling product. The walls
e well defined, there being an
bsolutely clean 'cleavage. The
ein strikes approximately east
nd west, and dips 55 degrees to
|ie north.
Mr. Tonkin stated that sup-
|ies sufficient to last the preset crew through the winter are
pw on the ground, and that

bert yesterday. Included in this
was about four tons of grey copper ore from the surface of the
upper lead, which was shipped
for a smelter test.
Work in the No. 1 tunnel on
the Olympia claim at the lower
camp is continuing, the crew
stopeing and sacking ore from a
rich shoot recently encountered
there. This tunnel will be continued for at least 50 feet, and
probably further, this winter.
Harry Tanner will stay in thru
the winter to direct the operations.
The development of the first
real shipper on the Alaskan side
marks an epoch in the history of
the Hyder Mining district.

Look at the map of Britiab Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is 800 milea from the same
point in the Peace River country that
is reached in 400 milea from Stewart,
which is the natural outlet for the
whole northern and eastern interior.
Nearly every settler in the Peace
River district is talking of railway
communication with the coast.
Speaking in broad terms there are
thirty-two millions of acres of the
Peace River district situated within the
boundaries of British Columbia, and
more than forty millions of acres within the Province of Alberta, most of it
being suitable agricultural land for
mixed farming or ranching, ln addition there is a vast area of mineral and
timber resources, the extent of winch is
only beginning to be realized.

E��i��i'��iv�� exploration work i�� being
carried on in connection with oil and
already startling results have been obtained. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
aud enough investigation has taken
place to be assured that they are of
wonderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural gaa.
The area under cultivation at present
is only about 300,000 aerea and the
population of the whole district is
about 20,000. The first grain was sent
out of the country three yeara ago, and
consisted of lens than one thousand
bushels. Last year nine million bushels
were produced from about a quarter
million aires, the average wheat yield
being thirty-rive bush.ls to the acre, or
nearly double the average of other
perilous of Alberta. The land ia also
well adapted for the raising of stock of
all kindii, particularly hoKs.

NOVEMBER 11, 1921, the anniversary of that memorable three short years
ago, when the joyous news was heralded
far and wide that the Armistice had been
signed, bringing to a close a war that had
cost the lives of millions of not only men,
but women and children. A war that for
magnitude and brutality, was unexcelled
in the history of the world. A war that
commenced in August, 1914, with the
battle cry of nations, the rattle of drums,
and the cheers of the throngs to the tramp
of marching feet, for
"Far and near, high and clear.
Hark to the call of w��r!
Over the gorse and the golden dells,
Ringing and swinging of clamourous bells,
Preying and saying of wild farewells.
War!   War!   War!
Women all, hear the call,
The pitiless call of war!
Look your last on your dearest ones,
Brothers and husbands, fathers and sons;
Swift they go to the ravenous guns,
The gluttonous guns ef war."
by the Canadians, and their terrible
casualty lists, casting a gloom over the
land that was hard to shake off, and which
took more to the recruiting offices, as the
lists of deid and wounded increased, and
stories of the hell of gas, wire, machine
guns and bombs, leaked through, such as:
���'Under a stooping sky
Of seething, sulphurous fire,
Scorching me up as lie
Here on the . . . the wire . . .
PROFESSIONAL   CARDS.
Hasten, Oh God!   Thy night!
Hide from my eyes the sight
Of the body I stare and see
Shattered so hideously.
I can't believe its's mine,
My body was white and sweet,
Flawless and fair and fine,
Shapeless from head to feet.
Oh, no I can never be
The thing of horror I see
Under the rifle fire,
Trussed on the wire . . . the wire . . .
The enlistments increased, until at
last out of a population of some 8,000,000
people, Canada sont 418,000 men to France.
Of these 60,000 are dead, most of them
buried in France.
"I am horror-haunted from the hell they found me:
I am battle broken, all I want is rest.
Oh!   It's good to die so, blossoms all around me,
And a kind lark singing in the golden west.

Sixty thousand men gave all they had,
