ANNOUNCEMENT
With this issue the Editor begs to announce to his friends
and readers that he has transferred his interest in the Portland
Canal News to Mr. H. W. M. Rolston, who will conduct the
paper on it's future course.
Confidence! That's what we need in British Columbia, and what we require in confidence as a Province we
can only receive as confidence in individuals	
Confidence is like good fellowship���it is contagious and
creates confidence in others. ...Throw aside petty un-
neighborliness and distrust of yourself and others; harness the spirit of confidence and you have harnessed the
agency that will draw us to big achievements, prosperity
and contentment in the homes.--Farm and Home.
An extremely interesting article appears in the
issue of the Saturday Evening Post dated January 22,
1921 which every red-blooded Canadian, and everyone
that has the interests of the Empire at heart, should
read and ponder the import of it's words. The article
is entitled "Everybody' Business" and deals with the
'Metal Mining Industries.' The conditions dealt with
are applicable to Canada equally as well as to the States,
both internally and internationally. The following paragraphs *ire quoted.
"The control and exploitation of the world's minerals during the next fifty years will provide the greatest
political problem that confronts the nations of the earth.
Every American (and Canadian) should seek to become
informed of the division of ownership of the world's
supplies of petroleum. In the years that are close upon
us we shall need a clear understanding of the importance
of the international oil situation, so that we may be
prompt in taking the initiative when action is required."
"If there are wars in the future it is likely that the
bone of contention will be the possession or control of
mineral deposits that are thought to be essential to the
welfare and progress of the nations"
"The plainest lesson of the war was that the nation
which exercises dominion ovef the minerals of the earth
controls the earth."
"Politically and economically, mining is the most
important business in which the United States (or Canada)
ia engaged. It is an industry which concerns the welfare
and deserves the attention of every citizen."

Stewart,
Look at the map of British Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is 800 miles from the same
point in the Peace River country that
is reached in 400 miles 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 Prorince of Alberta, most of it
being suitable agricultural land for
mixed farming or ranching. In addition there is a vast area of mineral and
timber resources, the extent of which is
only beginning to be realized.
Immense deposits of anthracite coal
have been located and the  president of I
the Peace River Board of Trade is
authority for the statement that this
coal grades higher than Pennsylvania
coal.
Extensive exploration work is being
carried on in connection with oil ami
already startling result* have been   ot>
tained. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
and enough investigation has taken
place to be assured that they are of
wonderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural gas.
The arsa under cultivation at present
is only about three hundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
district is about twenty thousand. The
first grain was sent out of the country
three years ago, and consisted of less
than one thousand bushels. Last year
nine million bushels were produced from
about a quarter million acres, the average wheat yield being thirty-live bushels to the acre ur nearly double the
average of other portions of Alberta.
The land is also well adapted for the
raising of stock of all kinds, particularly hogs.
lt is reasonable to suppose that if
two hundred and fifty   thousand   acres
1 are now producing nine million bushels
of grain, that within a very few yeara
there will be ten million acres producing three hundred and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons. PORTLAND   CANAL   NEWS,   Stewart, a.o.,   Feb. 12, 1921

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 20 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Provinco has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fee?
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.
