RECEIPTS
During the stay ofthe Prince Rupert, Sunday, three cabinet ministers
visited Stewart-Alex Manson, attorney-general; Dr. Sutherland, minister
of public werks, and E. D. Barrow, minister of agriculture With the
ministerial party was also F. C. Wad-, Hgent general for British Columbia
in London; H. F. Herein, M. L. A. for Atlin; Fred Stork, m^mher of the
House of Commons for Skeena. Captain Ian Mackenzie, M.L.A. for V.n-
conver; P. Philip*, chief engineer of the provincial dopartment of public
works; A. L. Car rut hers, public work- engineer for this district; George
Young, general road foreman for the district, and H. Glyn Ward, author of
"The Handwriting on the Wa.l," representing tht press. With the party
was also traveling a number of other.*, including the two daughters of the
minister of agriculture.
There was no warning of the visit of so distinguished a party, therefore
the residents of Stewart were taken by surprise when early Sunday morning the various ministers and members of their party came walking up from
the boat, Immediately after breakfusting the party left in two automobiles for an inspection of the Bear river bridge and wagon road as far aa
Ward's pass. Certain details of the former were worked out and decided
upon. Prior to leaving the ship, it was decided to build at once the trail up
the west side of the Bear river, between the wagon bridge and the international bridge at Bitter creek. Another road matter that was taken up
with the ministers through H. F. Kergin, by Messrs. Mahood and Howson,
was the extension of the Salmon river wagon road dhat was started two
years ago. Authority was given that this work be undertaken at once, and
completed through to the Big Missouri Hats.
Before leaving Stewart Mr. Sarrow, being interested in agriculture,
wished to see some of the local gardens, but had time only to visit that of
H. C. Bennett's, and was surprised to find such luxuriant growth. One
thing that astonished him was the size and flavor of the strawberries grown
here, which he pronounced as good a. the famous Gordon Head berries on
Vancouver Island.
Before the party left Stewart it wa- arranged with F. C. Wade, at his
request, to send an exhibit of ores from this district to the B. C. House,
London. The Citizens' Association aie undertaking the assembling of
this exhibit.
After completing their work in Stewart some of the party paid a visit to
Hyder to look over our Alaskan neighbor before their departure.

The manner in which work
has been got under way on the
properties of the American Mining and Milling company is symbolic of the managing director,
Grant Mahood. In spite of a late
spring a crew of men are already
underground with a tunnel on
the Daly and Sullivan. In addition to this 8500 pounds of supplies for the Divide group have
been taken in as far as the

PITY   THE   COMMISSION
THE   GLACIERS
MANY is the man in this district who
has cussed the various glaciers, not stopping to think that perhaps when nature
placed them here, there was a reason
for it.
While it has been recognized for some
time past, by a number of people, that
these glaciers can be used for the transportation of supplies, and even in the
shipping of ores. Yet, until recently this
phase of the transportation questson was
never thoroughly investigated; and it was
left to Los Angeles capital to send in a
civil engineer of high standing, in F. N.
Cronholm, to investigate and report.
lt is very gratifying to note that he is
PARLIAMENT has given the railway
commission and the railway management
a considerable contract. The prairie peo-
pie have obtained the Crows Nest reduc-
tion on eastbound grain. This leaves the
less chance for other rednctions unless the
country is indifferent about deficits. The
railway commission has the duty of making
freight rates equitahle among districts and interests competing for business. When the freight
on wheat exported through Vancouver is equalized '
with the Crows Nest rates of grain bound for the
lakes there will be a further loss of revenue. But
the railway commission has also the duty of allowing the railways to earn enough to pay running
expenses. Last year all the government roads
lost money. Wherefore it appears that parliament'
has given the railway commission a serious;
contract.

: Characteristics  of   Native
Indian Laborer
India  with  forty  times   the'
population   of  Canada,   expi r -
ences a chronic shortage of mine |
labor.   The might-be worker is
off the job more often than on.
When he deigns   to   do mining
work-nearly all mining in India
is   by   the  so-called    open   cut
method���he   takes    the    who'e'
family  along  with   him.    Mrs,
San^ster has not yet got around
to India.   Cock   lights  and  bazaars,   monsoons,  planting and
transplanting rice, general  held
woik   come   first.   Ho   government  commission   could    Settle
this constitutional lay off, or vacationing, and no attempt is made
at such regulation.    Iron mining
operations in the iron ore district
of Gorumhisani. state of Mayur-
ibhanj, India, according to Engi-
I neering   and   Mining   Journal-
I Press, are not soon likely to de-
I velop   a   world monopoly in the
I production   of  iron   ore.     The
! India coolie miner has a four day
! week.
Because of the characteristics:
���of the native Indian  laborer and,
! his indisposition to seek  higher]
standards of living or to adopt
other   than the most primitive
methods, it is apparent, from the
information   set   forth    in   the
article mentioned, that effecient
exploitation of India's extensiw
mineral resources must await the

Historical
Metal mining had its birth-j
'place in.Quebec, where, in 1737,
I the right to mine and smelt tbe
bog iron ores of Three Riverg
was granted by Louis XIV, _,ing
of France, to which nation the
country then belonged. The
mining and dredging of bog iron
developed the iron furnaces of
Radnor and Drummondville.
Quebec, too. was the scene of the
first placer discoveries in Canada]
when gold was discovered on the

The first discoveries of copper
and lead were made on the north
shore of lake superior, Ontario,
in 1767, and in 1770 an English
company started mining copper.
The first discovery of coal  in
western Canada   was   made   by
the Hudson's  Bay   company   in
1835. at Suquash, on  the  northeast coast of  Vancouver Island.
The   company   brought   miners
from Scotland to open the field, i

Placer Gold
British Columbia has been one
of the world's largest   producers
of   placer   gold,   the    value   ot
which, to 1921, reached $76,177,-
:403.   Three-fourths .of this pm-
��� production came from  the Cari-
; boo   gold   fields,   which    were
among the richest in mining hie-
| tory.    The Atlin district i*- now,
however, the principal placer gold
producing district of the province
and lias been so foi some years.

DO   IT   NOW
If with pleasure you are viewing aud work a man is doing
If - ou like him or you love him; tell him now;
Don't withhold your approbation 'til the parson makes oration
And he lies with snowy lillies o'er his brow. ,m
For no matter how you shout it, he won't really care about it,
He won't know how many teardrops you have shed;
If you _hink some praise is due him, now's the time to slip it to him,
For he cannot read his tombstone when he's dead.
More than fame and more than money is the comment kind and sunny,
The hearty, warm approval of a friend,
For it (fives to life a savor and it makes you stronger, braver,,
And it gives you heart and spirit to the end.
If he eards your praise, bestow it; if you like him-lethim know it;
Let the words of true encouraganient be said;
Do not wait till life is over, and he's underneath the clover,
FOR   HE
CANNOT   READ
HIS TOMBSTONE
WHEN HE'S DEAD.
KEEP   THEM   BURIED
No amount of money, no
amount of worry over the mistakes of the past will help the
future.
No regrets over yesterday will
profit today.
Wandering in the weed-grown
cemetery of the past, reading
the epitaphs of lights that failed,
gets a fellow in a state of mind
where he is liable to see the
bleaching skeletons of old blunders pointing the bony fingers
at him.
Digging  up  the  past brings
some pretty rotten things to v'.w
Stay away from the tomb of
regret. Always avoid the morgue
of miserable thoughts. Don't
wear the winding sheet of "it
might have been."
Use your old blunders to jolt
you into better things and then
forget about them. ,
Out of broken ranks of failures, you can, if you will, gather
up enough good scrap to build a
new toundation.
The most useless thing in life
is to worry about the things that
cannot be mended.

According to a press ^'lapatch
in a Vancouver daily, "Paris
decrees that short akirts are to
be worn no longer." Ambiguous this. Obviously, if short
skirts are to be worn no lcnger,
then they will remain short
On the ocher hand, if they are to
be no longer worn,  then there's
I to be short skirts no longer, and
! if they are not longer, then, of
j course, short skirts will remain
at their present length, if they
I don't become shorter���in other
; words, short skirts will be worn
; no longer, just as the dispatch
