Records Broken in Claim
Staking and Shipping
Annals, While Capitalists
and Engineers Abound
In the five office days between
last Thursday morning and yesterday, inclusive, 73 mining
claims were recorded with J. P.
Scarlett, mining recorder. This
is the heaviest week in the history of tha recording office since
the boom days of 1910, and
indicates the interest being taken
in the Bear river section since
the Dunwell has turned out to be
a sensation. Practically all of
the claims were staked along the
Bear river basin.
Eleven ships have tied up at
the Stewart wharf in the past
ten days. This constitutes another record, and is particularly
significant from the fact that the
-hipping is due to properties under development and producing.
The hills are full of mining engineers, and capitalists locking
the claims over from an investment standpoint.
There is no boom in the Portland Canal district, but all ia well.

to perfect the plans. Ivery town
within a radius of 200 miles will
be invited to participate.
In From Murdock
Jf. E. Douville and his two
miners came in Tut sday evening
from the Murdock group on the
east side of Bear river glacier,
where they finished the season's
assessment work. In the face
of the tunnel they have a fine
mineral showing, principally
steel galena, and a large average
sample was brought out for assaying. Upon receiving the returns Mr. Douville intends returning to the property and laying out a pack trail from the government trail, so that supplies
may be taken in in sufficient
quantity to enable real development to be undertaken.

PEACE  RIVER-STEWART RAILWAY
0
tun
IN discussing the Peace River-Stewart
railway project we stated, in the issue of
June 2, that:
Greater tonnage per mile can be
developed along the entire route than
can be developed along any other
route across British Columbia, now
followed or otherwise.
In substantiation of this statement,
what do we find ?
Starting with the Peace River country
itself, 375 miles from Stewart, a vast territory, and possibly one of Canada's most
fertile sections, capable of producing enormous quantities of grain and other farm
products; rich in natural gas, oil, and
asphalt, at present being strangled for
want of shorter and cheaper railway
transportation, but a country that once
given this facility, would in a few short
years produce millions of tons for disposal in markets abroad, and at the same
time consume tremendous quantities of
manufactured articles, and products from
overseas; a country that in itself warrants
the construction of this 375 miles of
railway.
But we spoke of tonnage per mile, so
we leave this rich country east of the
mountains, and come west into and
through the Peace Pass, and in so doing,
pass close to large deposits of hematite
iron ores, now being investigated by
Ontario capital. A little further west,
and in close proximity, is a large semi-
anthracite coal field, at present being developed by George Ay lard and associates.
The day will come when both these sources
of natural wealth will be the foundation
of a great industrial centre in the north,
distributing and consuming great quanti-
of local, as well as foreign products.
A little further west, the rich agricultural lands of the Parsnip and Finlay
ri?ers would be made available for settlement. The country to the west of these
streams containing, as it does, large deposits of precious metals, such as gold,
silver, 9*4 ���tWHilti metals, would be
opened up and made productive,
(tossing over the watershed to the
Skeena ami Naas rivers, the famous
(.round Hog anthracite eoal fields would
b�� traversed, and immediately to the west
the agricultural and timber lands of the
Naas,   Crossing (bis seel ion tbe railway
would reach the coast range, and in coming down through it, would for its entire
length, be in the wonderful mineral belt,
of which Stewart is the front door.
No other route across the province can
ever equal this from a tonnage per mile
standpoint. Such a railway would not
only make farming in the Peace River
profitable, but it would at the same time
open up for development the richest section of the whole North American Continent, a country that, if once given transportation facilities, would in a very few
years afford a good living for tens of thousands of people.
In addition to this tonnage along the
route, a railroad would be established in
Hyder, Alaska, thus giving that territory
much needed transcontinental railway
communication, and a large share of
Alaska's eastern trade would be automatically diverted over it.
During 1922 Alaska shipped to the
United States, products valued at $48,596,-
532, exclusive of shipments of gold and
silver bullion. While her imports from
the United States for the same year,
totaled $26,777,806, made up principally
of tinplate, machinery, petroleum products, tobacco, foodstuffs and clothing.
Never in the history of railroading in
Canada or the U. S. A. has such an opportunity been presented to the railway interests
of this Continent as the Peace River-Stewart
route. Never has a route been even contemplated
that has been capable of producing greater tonnage per mile as does this route. Never was one
so necessary if the people of today are to benefit
from the almost unlimited natural resources that
would be made available by such a railway. This
road is necessary. This road is essential if
Canada is to utilize to the utmost the great potential wealth with which she is blessed.

Five-Sixths of th* timbered area in  British Columbia
belongs to ths People.
Each year, it is increasing in value as the  more accessible timber is cut,
In PJ22 there was received from the sale of such timber the sum of 1890,000.
This helped   to keep your taxes down, and to build up
the Province.
Green Timber is British Columbia's assurance of  Perpetual Prosperity.

inerals, $1,358,839; making its Mineral Production to the end of
1922 show
AN. AGGREGATE VALUE OF $734,259,619
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
five years, 1901-1905, $96,509,968; ifor five years. 1906-1910, $125,-

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $339,280,940
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 10 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; SOO.OOO
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any oth��� 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 ia guaranteed by Crown Grants.
Full information, together with Mining Reports and Maps, may

SURPRISES IN
THE UPLANDS
One naturally thinks  of  the
region above timber line,   with
its vast reaches  of  snow-fields
and its unscalable craggy peaks,
its fog-cursed glaciers and windswept rocky ridges,   as  a  land
barren of all life, with  the possible exception  of  a  prowling,
disgruntled grizzly, or hurrying
caribou, crossing from one grazing valley to another.    Yet the
visitor to this supposed No-man's
land will find it teeming with bird
animal,   insect and  plant life.
Wherever a bit of earth can find
foothold, will be found the dainty
bluebell, competing for existence
with forget-me-nots and   other
flowers that are indigeous to the
outer   rim   of   eternal    snow.
"Whistlers," those uncouth, over-grown   groundhogs,    call  to
each other from the  mouths  of
their burrows;  the  timid  little
marmot  eternally   watches  for
something to scare him,   so that
he may go chattering and scur-
ying  back   into  his   rock-slide
home: chipmunks gossip and call
their neighbors names unfit   to
print; pack rats lazily  plan   the
coming night's foraging expedition, when they will   steal   anything light enough to carry, and
not nailed down.
And there are some denizens
of these supposed solitudes that
somehow do not seem to fit in
with the general scheme. For
instance, on the mountain beyond
Chickamin glacier and west of
the head of Salmon glacier, an
observant visitor recently noticed
a robin, hummingbird, bat, bumble bees, grasshoppers, and more
surprising than all, a "darning
needle." such as frequent southern swamps and feed on mosquitoes. This alien may have been
attracted by the swarms of insects that infest the uplands���
but how did he know that they
were there?
