the event was most enjoyable. The

out a large crowd of Stewart
folks which materially added to
the success of the evening.
Having been away from Hyder
I for seven months, visited the Mackenzie river, investigated the oil
situation there, prospected for placer in the Liard district and made
a straight mush of 1385 miles out
to civilisation, living on such game
as he could shoot and snare, J. T.
Burns, known al! over the North as
Engineer Burns, has returned to
Hyder. With him is Perry, his famous husky dog who has a record
of having rnushed over 20,000 miles
not counting his trips by boat. He
was born in Cleary 15 years ago
and is known to hunderds of sour-
I doughs.
Mr. Burns says that he found several prospects in the Liard country
where a man could pan   from   ten
i to twelve dollars per day,  but that
j the inaccessibility of   the   country
I makes profitable mining there   at
! the present time out of the   question. With transportation available
this will, he says, become   a   great
producer, not only of gold   but  of
other minerals, and he emphasizes
the fact that the head of Portland-
Canal is the natural outlet   for   a
railroad.

PLAIN   TALK
If this community or any other for that matter is
ever going to amount to anything the men who have
the backbone to state facts and stand by them must realize that a duty devolves upon them to take a leading
part in the affairs of that community.
But the attempt, however, which was made
at a public meeting last Thursday, to stampede ihe
editor into giving an expression cf the attitude of the
press upon a subject which the meeting was to consider,
before anyone but the convener of the meeting had pre-
santed any veiws, was wholly uncalled for and out of place,
and was designed solely to show up the position of the
editor's personal affairs and attach prcdjudice to any
expression of opinion he might give, and the highhanded
suggestion that a threat could be used to force an expression or dictate the policy of this paper is a presumption on the rights of free speech and a free press.
The function of the press in a properly constituted
community is to express the views of the solid, conservative and constructive element in that community and
to disseminate such news as will give this element support and impetus in building up the community. To pander to the sensational volatile element of a community is
the function of the yellow press, and this paper is not
yellow.nor is it streaked.
The policy of this paper is to further the best interests
of Stewart and the Portland Canal District. It is not
subservient to any private interests whatsoever and is
ready at all times to give full expression to the views of
the community.
An imaginary controversy has arisen between the
Premier Gold Mining Company and the people of Stewart.
The chief difficulty which this situation presents is
to decide which side is guilty of excess imagination.
We have a public dock which requires no stretch cf
the imagination to realize its inadequacy. Tl.at thetlock
may be sufficient for the needs of the Premier Gold Mining Company is not disputed.
The fact however that the people of Stewart do not
think it is adequate for their needs as well as those of the
Premier and because they take steps to secure a greater
measure of convenience by pointing out the necessity of
more accomodation, this cannot be contrued by any process of reasoning or imagination to be a move to the detriment of the Premier Gold Mining Company. On the
other hind the Premier Gold Mining Co should
lend every effort to co-operate in securing what will be
a benifit for all.

Look at the map of British Columbia
with un unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is 800 miles; from the same
point in the Peace River country that
is reached in 400 miles from Stewart,
which is the natural outlet for the
whole northern and eastern interior.
Nearly every settler in the Peace
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 the
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. 1" addition there is a vast area nf mineral and
timber resources, the extent of which is
only beginning to be realized.
Immense deposits of anthracite coal
have been located and the president of
the Peace River Board of Trade is
authority for the statement that this
coal grades higher than Pennsylvania
coal.  ���' .   .
Exi inti re exploration work is being
carried . ��� m connection with oil ana
already startling results have been   ob
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 ar?a uii'ler cultivation at present
is only about three hundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
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 were produced from
about a quarter million 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 of all kinds, particularly hogs.
It is reus,.liable to suppose that if
two hundred and fifty thousand acres
are now producing nine million bushels
of grain, that within a very few years
there will be ten million acres producing three hundred ami fifty million bushels of grain, or rouglily, ten million
tons.

MINERAL
PRODUCTION
The value of the total mineral
production of Alaska increased from
$19,620,000 in 1919 to $22,070,000
in 1920 according to estimates by
Alfred H.Brooks, United States Geological survey, Department of the
Interior. This brings the value of
the total minesal production of the h
Territory up to $460,000,000, over I
half of which is to be credited to
the last decade. The apparent prosperity of the Alaska mining industry during the year is due solely to
the increase in the output of copper
from 47,220,000 pounds, valued at
$8,783,000 in 1919, to about 71,000-
000 pounds, valued at $12,400,000,
in 1920. Alaska has now produced
616,200,000 pounds 6f copper, worth
$127,000,000.
Alaska has been seriously affected by the world-wide depression of
the gold-mining industry of the past
four years, during wnich the output
of her gold mines has been steadily
declining. The output of gold in Alaska fell trom $9,426,000 in 1919 to
about $8,000,000 in 1920, bringing
the total gold output up to,a value
of $320,000,000".    This decline is,
however, not due to any marked depletion of the gold deposits, for the
Territory contains enormous potential reserves of gold and other valuable, miuerals, but since the  purchasing power of gold has decreased
it has been impossible  to  exploit
profitably many of the gold deposits, so that the miner and  prospector has been forced to leave.    This
' condition is most serious, for about
60 per cent of Alaska's population
has been supported,  directly or indirectly, by gold mining.
The depression of the mining industry in Alaska is only temporary;
a change for the better will come
when economic conditions become
more normal and land transportation has been made cheaper
and better. What is chiefly needed
is the completion of the government
railroad, now assured, the lowering
of freight rates and the building of
wagon roads.
