Friends of Geo.   M. Berry who, with
his partner, Fred Lee,   has been   prospecting in   this   district   this  summer,
have given up hopes that they   will set
him alive.    He left  Hyder   in   a  smali
boa! on the morning of Oct.   lti   to   go
down to his camp, on the Canadian side
about ten miles below town,   to get I; s
outfit, intending to return Saturday, but
he never reached his  camp.    When  be
had not returned by Monday   his   partner and Frank Gillespie went in   search
of him.    They spent three  days  combing both shores, but were unable to find
any trace of either him or his boat.
Berry had been  en years in   Alaska,
corning to   the   territory   from   Butte.
He was known  as   a   good   hard   rock
miner and pump  man,   and   bad   been
quite active  in   union   circles,   having
he  ii organizer for the Western  Federation of Miners in   Valdez,   and   secre
tarv of the union in   both   Valdez   and
fc   arthy.    In 1912 he ran   for   repre-
iv   oi the Soeia ist ticket at Val
/.
Although a congenital cripple, having

STEWART, B. C, Oct.  31, 1919
Canadians and all Britishers will give
theif hearty support to the Sixth Vic-1
tory Loan campaigh which is now under way, Just how Stewart will respond there probably will be no way
of telling because this section seems
to have been over'ooked entirely by
the organization staff in Vancouver.
But organization has no doubt been I
perfected in Prince Rupert and those
who want to buy bonds may send to
that city where a sub-committee on
organization has no doubt been arranged for. How this section came to
be overlooked is beyond understanding.
However that should not deter the
heartiness of support from this district though lack of organization here
is bound to have an influence which
will injure the success of the loan
here, Past campaigns have shown
that it takes organization to get the
money, no matter how willing or patriotic people may be. Even so, there
no doubt will be substantial response
from this quarter.
