FOURTH   OF  JULY
July 4, 1776���Ushered into the world
a new Nation, in the United States of
America. For on that date the Continental Congress of the British Colonists
in America, read, passed, and adopted a
paper entitled a "Declaration of Independence." This was the climax to many years
of miss rule by the then government of
Great Britain, and one year of revolutionary war. Which, commencing on April
19,1775, when General Gage, the British
commander, sent troops out from Boston
to Concord, to seize certain of the Colonists' military supplies, continued with
more or less heavy fighting until the sign-1
ing of the Treaty of Paris on September 3,
1783, by which Great Britain acknowledged the independence of the United
States of America, then consisting of only
13 states.
As is the case with all sueh wars,
families were divided amongst themselves,
homes were broken up, md much hard
and bitter feeling created, evidenced in the
fact, that some 40,000 persons known as
United Empire Loyalists, left their homes
in the 13 American colonies and migrated
to Canada, settling for the most part in
New Brunswick, Ontario and a portion of
Nova Scotia; afterwards exercising a large
influence in the development of representative institutions in their new homes.
July 4,1921���One hundred and forty-
five years later. A great and powerful
nation composed of 48 states, and known
as the United States of America, with a
population of 106,000,000, living to the
south of a 3000 mile border between them
and the British, on which there is not a
fort or a weapon of any kind pointing
either north or south.
Two great and powerful nations, that
of the United States of America, and that
of the British, facing the world together
in the interests of freedom, liberty, and
justice; speaking the same language; living under much the same institutions;
fraternizing and intermingling socially,
and commercially, with nothing between
them but a line on the map, celebrating
each other's national holidays with the
Union Jack and Stars and Stripes entwined, in affection and goodfellowship.
pointed, who have by the meeting been instructed to go thoroughly into the situation and, after due consideration and
investigation, to report back to a similar
meeting their recommendations.
What form these recommendations
will take is a matter that at this juncture
can not be predicted, and any speculation
as to their nature would be premature and
therefore unwarranted.
It is to be hoped, however, that this is
the first step in the forging of a chain of
progress and prosperity, that stretching
down through the years to come, will establish the town of Stewart in her rightful position: one of the most progressive
and thriving communities upon the
Pacific Coast.

The Imperial Conference now under way in
London is probably the most momentous conference ever held within the British Empire, coming,
as it does, at the close of the greatest war in thc
history of the world, and thereby having, as it
were, not only the debris of the war to clean up,
but what is more important still, the construction
of new policies, the tangible shaping of new and
more substantial principles, and the setting of the
ship of state more steadily upon her course.
One feature of this conference that augers
well for the future, is the fact that the Overseas
Dominions are entering it on a more equal footing
with the Mother Country than ever before, and
are taking part therein as sister states, one with
the other, and with Great Britain. In this way
the British Commonwealth of Nations has become
a concrete reality, based on democracy, freedom
and justice.
Probably never in the history of 'the Empire
has the conference been composed of such brilliant
men as is the one of the moment. Lloyd George
and A. J. Balfour of Great Britain; Smuts of South
Africa; Hughes of Australia, and Massey of New
New Zealand���all men who, during the war,
proved themselves as men of outstanding ability.
Meighen of Canada, not only a young man in
years, but in comparison with tha others, young
also in politics; a man of broad vision, strong intellect and character, and one who appears to be
making himself felt in a way that promises to em-
blazen his name in the history of Canada on a
plane with his two great predecessors. Sir John A.
Macdonald and Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

TUESDAY'S  MEETING
"Rich Man Robbed of $100,000," exclaims a
headline in a coast paper. The word "rich"
is superfluous.
Fifty eight per cent of the British pensions
being paid from the last war are for infirmity
caused by disease.
The name philanthropist is a very dubious one
to apply to anyone. It usually means a man with
more money than sense.
J. W. Grier, who has published papers in
many coast and interior towns for a quarter of a
century, is now editor, proprietor, and all round
athlete of The Lease, New Denver. The paper
cutter in the Lease office is a sword that belonged
to Napoleon in the Battle of Waterloo. May The
Lease prove a dividend payer.

silver, copper, iron and other
metallic minerals. Canada's coal
resources are extensive and production is increasing.

AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $670,649,894
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Provinoe
Is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1805,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not JO per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 800,000
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 oth-jr 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 which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

Mind Your Own Business
People who never mind   their
own business are very much such
a class of animals as the cross,
surly, whiffet dogs that are  always barking, biting  and   nabbing somebody.   We wonder if
they would appreciate a lecture?
We will ask them a few questions
just to find out:   Don't you think
the  world   and the people in it
will live and prosper without the
tremendous anxiety you carry on
your shoulders by keeping an eye
on everything and everybody in
the neighborhood and the world
besides?   Can't Mrs. A. make a
sweetcake   without   your  lying
awake at nights for fear there is
going to be a wedding and you
will not be invited ?   Can't Jenny
have a new gown but you must
immediately  see  it,   know the
price and for what special occasion it was purchased, or die of
curiosity?    Can't  neighbor  B.
and his wife go out but you'll bet
they're going  to see somebody
and have slighted you?
You Tell 'Em
They say the country girl is shy
And full of dignity,
But, really, it's the city girl
That seams so shy to me.
She flaunts a skirt cut very high,
And quite a length of hose;
I'd say the city girl was shv
"When you refer to clothes.
"And when I kissed htr, I
smelled tobacco on her lips."
"You object to kissing a woman
who smokes?" "No, but she
doesn't smoke."

Tuneful Liars
Exchange: Bear with me while
I teii you a new variation on an
old story. It concerns the time
honored yarn of the three liars,
the biggest liar to win ��he prize.
In this version the three competitors, an Englishman, an Irishman and an American, were to
retail their most amazing experience in the war. Said the Englishman, "I was in the R. A. F.
and one day I flew so high that I
talked with the angels." "I was
on a submarine," said Paddy,
"and one day we dived so deep
that we bumped into Old Nick
himself." "Well," said the
American, "I'll have to go some
to beat you fellows, but before I
try to recollect my most amazing
experience, I want to tell you
men that America won the war."
Whereupon, without a moment's
hesitation, the other two awarded
him the prize.
Smile, Smile, Smile
Those who are feeling depressed at the troubles through
which we are passing would receive a good tonic if they took a
waik through Whitechapel. For
on the notice board of a certain
church there the following piece
of anatomical pleasantry has been
painted:    .
It is easier to smile than to
frown!
To frown you use 64 muscles,
but only 13 to smile.
I'll Say He Did
I asked a guy to have a nip:
He did.
He said he wanted just a sip:
He did.
But when his little sip  was o'er
And I saw that thero was no
more,
Did that guy go out my cellar
door?
He did.

Look at the map of British Columbia i
with an unbiased mind.   Roughly Van-1
couver is   800   miles   from   the   same j
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 Peoce
River district is talking of railway
communication with the coast.
Speaking in broad terms there are
thirty-two millions of acres of the
Peace Rivnr rtintriot ajtv'.eted ���"'ithif* 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. In addition there is a vast area of mineral and
timber resources, the extent of which Ui
only beginning to be realized.
Immense deposits of anthracite coal
have been located and lhe president of
the Pea***! River Hoard of Trade is
authority for the statement that this
ooal grades higher than Pennsylvania
coal.
Extensive exploration work is being
curried on in connection with oil and
already startling results have been ob
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 area under cultivation at present
�������� only about three hundred thou��uiu
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 les--
than nnc IhoBBBfl- bushels. Last year
nine million bushels were produced from
about a quarter million acreu, the average wheat yield being thirty-five bushels to the acre or 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 Buppose that if
two hundred and fifty thousand acres
are now producing nine million bushels
of grain, that within a very few years
there will be ten million acres producing three hundred and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons.
