THE article appearing on this page, last week, concerning the Premier mine, we feel sure was of interest
to not only the local residents, but also to the whole of the
world's mining fraternity, ' for it recorded a mining romance without counterpart in recent history of the west,
and comparable only with lUe stiiring tales of the Comstock and other historic early day camps. Within three
months this great gold-silver mine, ficm levels but a few
hu. dred feet below the surface, has distributed no less
than $900,000 in dividends, after spending almost as much
more in tramway and mill construction and necessary
development.''
To the province as a whole, and this northern section
in particular, this was most satisfactory news, for it spells
an era of prosperity for the whole north land such as has
never before been experienced therein; and so in turn will
help the entire province to recover more quickly from the
ehV-ts of the war. For a showing such as the Premier
has made will center on this northern section the eyes of
the mining world, particularly in view of the fact that
there are many properties in the district awaiting capital
to develop them, that have better showings than the Premier ever had, when that now famous mine was in a
similar stage of development. These properties will not
now be allowed lo lie idle much longer. And in a mineral
belt such as this which as yet is only scratched, an era of
prosperity is dawning that will overshadow anything ever
before experienced  in Canada.
Pat McBride, who has been
working at the Silverado, came
down the hill during the week.
Pat is very enthusiastic about the
property.
Times are not the best. But
Stewartites are, on an average,
disgustingly healthy, voraciously
ambitious, and content only with
better things���not worse.
L. Siem, brother of   the man-
services; J. M. Horn, general
freight agent, both of Vancouver,
and G. A. McNicholl, assistant
general freight and passenger
agent, of Prince Rupert, paid
Stewart a visit during the stay
of the Albert last Saturday, for
ihe purpose of interviewing the
executive of the Stewart Citizens' association, in connection
with the campaign that, that
body has recently been waging
against the freight and passenger rates on the government's
steamers plying into this port.
During the conference, which
lasted between two and a half
and three hours, the whole
transportation problem was most
thoroughly gone into, every
phase of the situation being dealt
with; with the result that the
executive were informed that, in
addition to the cut of $2.50in the
passenger fare,   a   freight   rate
ager of the Salmon  River Trad- cut of $1 cn oil and disselite, and

Another matter that received
attention was the unsatisfactory
manner in which the company
have heretofore notified Stewart
of Steamship arrivals, and it was
arranged that from now on an
official of the company will wire
the local wharfinger the time of
arrival, and that such wire would
not be sent until it was known
definitely, to within an hour or
so, what time the boat would
arrive.
The matter of claims was also
gone into, and the company officials took notes on several that
were brought forward as evidence, with a view to having
same cleared up. They explained
that this department has now
been reorganized and from henceforth they felt sure little difficulty regarding legitimate claims
would be experienced.

TIME  FOR   A   MEETING
WRANGELL   ISLAND
IT does not yet appear whether the
United States will acquiesce in the act of
the Canadian Arctic party which raised
the British flag on Wrangell Island and
declared the land to be a possession of His
Majesty. The proclamation bases this
right on the lapse of the claim of the
United States, one of whose citizens long
ago took possession in the name of the republic. So far as we know neither the
British government, the government of the
United States, or the government of
Canada has yet made any declaration on
the matter. If there should be any possible doubt as to the title to this unoccupied territory there is an international
court set up for just such purposes. The
Hague tribunal has the confidence of the
United States and Great Britain. Wrangell
Island is not a matter for wrangling.
WITH   RESERVATIONS
THE four-power Pacific treaty has
been ratified at Washington, with certain
limitations and reservations. These were
considered by the delegates to be unnecessary, but they could not well be rejected,
as they are in line with the contentions of
Senator Lodge and other republicaus when
the League of Nations treaty was before
the senate.
It is not quite clear where these reservations will land the treaty when it comes
up for ratification in other countries. The
Washington declarations may be passed
over as not affecting the main agreement,
IT was desirable that the Premier of
Northern Ireland and the Premier of
Southern Ireland should nu et again and
have another friendly discussion. The
prospect of their working together in any
kind of neighborly relations was not improved by the interchange of long distance
accusations that have taken place. It
mitfht be well if the chiefs of the north and south
would open up with a conservation such as that
alleged to have taken place between the governors
of North and South Carolina. The Free State
treaty was the result of an adjournment of a longdistance controversy and the substitution of an
intimate conversation. It is clear that this process
must be frequently repeated in order to achieve
co-operation.
SAVED   BY   SCIENCE
FIFTEEN years' progress in medical
and surgical science may have saved 60,000
Canadian soldiers in the late war. In his address
to the Canadian Club Dr. Proctor showed that the
British lost more men in the Boer war by typhoid
fever than were killed or died of wounds. This
disease was almost entirely suppressed in the late
war. Typhoid and other communicable diseases,
blood poisoning and other causes of death which
were eliminated or iargeiy overcome, would undoubtedly have doubled the fatalities in the late
war if the conditions had been as they were in
other great conflicts.
NOTE   AND   COMMENT

THE Soldier Bonus Bill has had an
easier time in the United States congress
than was expected, though there are yet
many obstacles to be overcome. Measures
previously proposed have fallen by the
way because in one way or another they
called for some form of immediate taxation
to raiae the money. The bill now making

and spreads the payment! over a long
period. The soldier receives a certificate

average in life, not on any one good thing he has

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province 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 fees
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.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

In the first place it must be worked
out by algebra, astronomy, trigonometry, syntax, calculus, and palmistry;
' and should not bs undertaken till competent authority certifies your ability to
prove material products assumed by
anyone producing nothing during the
taxable period has an excess he otherwise would not have possessed.
If your income is $2400 a year and
you own a ton of coal or a diamond ring
and an automobile, and are married to
a brunette girl 26 years old, you take
the amount of the income, add your
personal property, substract the number
of your postoffice box, multiply by your
height, add the date of your birth, and
divide bv your waistmeasure. If there
is a child in the family, subtract $300.19
from your income, add the amount of
your personal property, subtract the
size of your collar, omitting fractions ���
divide by the square root of your  tele
phone number, add the chiles age, subtract the amount you have given the
church and liquor vendor during the
year, multiply by time of day. divide
by 41144, and add the size of your hat
with and without band. If there is a
second child in the family, or you keep
a canary divide by the number of your
automobile license tag, subtract the
number of buttons on your vest, take
six per cent of the answer and add
seven-eighths the weight of your
mother-in-law. If wife has separate
income and joint return is contemplated,
divide by sum of her glove and shoo
sizes (6-1-7 equals 13) instead of automobile license tag.
After you get it all figured out and
have arrived at an an wer which may
be right and which prcbably is not, you
won't have to pay taxes of any name or
nature, for they will have you in the
booby hatch���strapped down.
