In another column appears a letter frcm Mcsstrs Lawrence & Workman which takes up the question of moral
right attached to vested interest, as it affects the old
water light and power plant.
In the first place the old company installed a plant
without a franchise but had the assurance from the government then in power that they would be fully protected
in the event of the incorporation of the city. This assurance undoubtedly presupposed the fulfilling of all Icgiii-
mate demands for service.
Since then the rising operation cost? and dwindling
scource of revenue put the company in debt and forced
tKe plant to close down and it has remained closed for
a matter of eight )7ears. In the interval the debenture
holders foreclose and the original stockholders lose every
cent of their original investment; but so little do either
the the stockholders, or, the bondholders think of the
prospects of throwing good money after bad that no attempt was made to maintain*>the system against the
ravages of time and the elements. The result bsing that
a great portion of it is now junk.
A new concern is now in the field ready to commence
installation of a plant and guarantee adequate service
at rates which under present conditions are very reasonable. Their capital is not unlimited. They concede the
good faith of the owners of the previous plant. They realize that present business prospects require the mest
careful expenditure of money, that they do not suffer the
same fate as the former concern. They want to give the
greatest amount of service for the money required and
having this in mind, made an offer to the owners of the
old plant which was based not altogether on its monetary
value.
In that offer the general public has no direct interest
except in-so-far as the matter may prove an interference
in the obtaining of electric light, water and fire protection.
The services, as we pointed out last week, are vitally necessary now to the growth of the town and no obstacle whatever should be placed in the way of a bona fide
proposito'n. Furthermore the people realize that the utmost economy and efficiency of installation and operation will have to be exercised to make them pay.
Any effort then, to unload a dead horse to the detriment of the company's finances and ultimate services
would not be to the best interests of the community.
It would be interesting to know.
Who attempted to appropriate a sack of sugar from
the wharf?
Did the same party take sundry other bags that
are missing?
Is the party in need?
Who m^dean alleged offer to our erstwhile lady
member, of $3,000 foi the privilige of horning in on her
chances of getting a drug out the liquor vendorship.
Who fathered the report that the Hospital Board
have been working on a financial statement for three
weeks and have not yet unraveled it?
W hat connection, if any, did a certain bit of road
work last fall have with campaign funds.

It has been brought to our attention several times that the
bondholders of the old light water and power Company have a
certain moral right on account of
vested interest in Stewart.

Look at the map of British Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is S:ii) miles from the same
point in the Peace Kiver country that
is reached in 100 miles from Stewart,
which is the natural outlet for the
whole northern and eastern interior.
Nearly every settler in the Peaci
River district is talking of railway
communication with the coast.
Speaking in broad terms there are
thirty-two millions of acres of the
Peace River district situated within tin-
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
tion there is a vast area of mineral and
timber resources, tin-extent of which is
only beginning to be realized.
Immense deposits of anthracite coal
have been located and the president oi
the Peace Kiver Board of ' ra le ii
authority for the statement that this
coal grades higher than Pennsylvania
coal.
Extensive exploration work Is ui
carried on in connection   with   oil   and
already startling results have b< en   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 arja under cultivation at present
is only about three hundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
j district is about twenty thousand. The
first grain was sent out of the country
three years ago, and consisted of less
than one thousand bushels. Last year
nine million bushels wereproduced from
about a quarter mill,on acres, 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 id' all kinds, particu
larly hogs,
lt is reasonable to suppose that if
two hundred and fifty thousand BCreS
are now producing nine million bushels
of grain, that within a very few yeara
there will be ten million acres producing three hundred and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons. PORTLAND   CANAL   WbWS,   STEWART, t>.<-,., Jan. 15,   1921
