PACKING SCENE ON SALMON RIVER.
V.'
'f^ilLS is a fine bit of summer scenery up the Salmon River
valley and shows how supplies are packed into the mines
and properties until such time as wagon roads could have
been built, Dn Lindebovj? who, with his brother Andy
discovered and opened up the Big Missouri mine, who was the
original owner of the Hyder townsite, having taken up a
homestead at the mouth of Salmon Liver in 1905, and who is
still one of the heaviest mine owners in the district, is here
sh i'.vii wir'i a s'ring of pack horses on his way to the mines.
The horses seem fat a^d satisfied, 'whicJi is a commentary en

For Every Child in District.

Town Hall���Details are
Entirely in Hands of Committees.
Santa Clans is due to arrive in Stewart on Saturday, Dec. 27, really two
days late but that is for the conven-
i;nce of th,- kiddies. He will come
dj.vn the chimney at the Town Hall
d iring the evening and while the children's entertainment is in progress.
This arrangement was the outcome of
a conference of the ladies Monday
night when practically all of the de-
tails were worked out. Even Santa
CI ms himself was > ommunicated with
it is understood
A magnificent Christinas tree will
soon be hauled in and set up. Judging
by the subscriptions already handed in
to the treasurer, the presents for tlie
children will be numerous and substantial. It was decided not to solicit
for the fund but to place boxes about
where the spare change may find its
way during the next few days.
In this connection it should be mentioned that as there are a lot of tilings
to be ordered from the outside, those
who desire to give something toward
the great event for the children should
do so immediately so those in charge
may order on the next mail.
S ' ndid arrangements were made
by the ladies and it is for the men to
pro\ de the nqgessary highgrade. Mrs.
P. S. Jack is head of the committees
and Mrs. H. P. Gibson is the treasurer.
Following are tlie committees:
Presents Mrs Irving. Mrs. Martin
and Miss Dorothy Thompson.
Decorations - Mrs. Hack.:.-, Mrs.

chuck Thursday morning when two of
th bents of the br dge upon which it
was resting slid out into the canal. The
big frame, with its engine and driver,
hung poised on a balance and it was
only by the most careful m imputation
that it was hauled back to safety.
The accident will mean a delav of
about a week in the road construction

STEWART, B. C, Nov. 21, 1919
of war millionaires putting their money
into Victory bonds where it wont get
taxed.
But that perhaps has little to do
with the local mail service. Last week
for instance upon inauguration of the
fortnightly service the mail was so
heavy it took the local staff five hours
to sort it. Had the steamer not an
extra heavy cargo and had remained in
port only the customary time, letters
could not have been answered which
would have meant a wait of another
two weeks.
One might easily believe judging by
the mail sen ice that this was a remote
district instead of but a few hour's
sail from Prince Rupert.
However, unt 1 such time as car own
service is aJjnsted urgent communication with the outside is established by
! way of Hyder, Alaska, a mile away
where they have a  weekly service.
There are hopes that the mail service
will be improved. The postmaster-gen
eral's department has been stirred up
at least. The Stewart Citizen's Association has been promised that the deplorable state of affairs here will be
looked into. If nothing is done this
section will have to accept a fortnightly service unless the citizens themselves subsidize a service. The proposal of the authorities is to give the
service which the quiet camp of Stewart had to be satisfied with a year ago.
But Stewart is a different town today.
It is much larger in population and
business enterprises. At least a weekly service is imperative.
It is understood that Capt. McCros-
kie has offered to deliver the mail here
at least weekly for approximately
$1900 for the year. Bidding against
him in favor of a fortnightly service is
Swanson of Prince Rupert who during
the Coast strike when this sectien was
short of food boosted freight rates
from $7 to $30 a ton. Furthermore,
he farmed out his contract and hasn't
been seen here for months. Yet this
is the person Inspector Fletcher is reported to favor in preference to the
man who all summer has maintained a
bi-weekly passenger and freight service between Prince Rupert and Stewart.
It has always been a principle, purported at least, that the postoffice system is not conducted for profit, but for
accommodation and service at cost.
The increased postage is still in force
as a war measure in this country and
profits no doubt go to pay for something or other.    But there still are lots

Take time now
TO HAVE your teeth attended
to. Do not wait till aches
force you. If your teeth are .in
bad condition it means your
health is being steadily undermined. Keep them attended to
properly and you will be saved
a lot of misery. Nowadays dental science has removed largely
the former fear of pain and the
oldtime fears are gone.
