VICTORIA DAY
CELEBRATION
Baseball, Football, Boxing,
Dancing and Perfect Weather Cembine to Make
Day a Success
Victoria Day was appropriately
celebrated in Stewart, a program
of entertainment prepared by the
International Service Club being
carried out under a sunny sky
and a balmy night Bssebsll snd
football called the residents to
Recreation Park in the afternoon
and in tho evening a boxing exhibition in the Stewart Theatre
and a dance in the Hotel Stewart prolonged festivities until, in
the vernacular, it was time to
hit the hay. Hyder moved over
en masse, and the athletes from
across the border helped very
materially in e^ery event.
Football
Stewart evened up their defeat
by the smelter baseball team
from Anyox by defeating their
soccer team by a score of 2���1.
It was a tough game with both
aides working the-r heads and
legs off, and several minor casualties resulted, but notHing that
was unexpected. Scott. Ihe Anyox hilf-bsck, was hurt in the
solar plexus in the last half and
pui out of commission. One of
the Stewart boys took the grass
lor a few minutes, and two Anyox players, Sherman and O'Con-

Koine to s finish, snd their team
work was up to the minute.
An important strike was made
this week on the Dunwell, in the
discovery of the extension of the
"Green Vein," the easterly lode
of the series of four north and
south veins that traverse the
company's ground.
The discovery was made by
deepening a small creek crossing
the formation, and the vein ex
posed, the ore shows considerable
native silver and silver sulphides
and is apparently of higher grade
than elsewhere discovered.
The vein lies directly ahead of
the two tunnels now being driven on the east and west cross
fissure. The upper tunnel, now
in 175 fett, crosscut the No. 2
vein St 40 feet from the portal
and entered high-grade ore that
continued for some 30 feet, the
balance of the vein to the face
being of a good milling grade.
The lower tunnel, which is being driven to strike the intersection of the high-grade ore with
the No. 2 vein at 100 feet lower
elevation, is now in 240 feet and
should strike the objective point
at 40 feet further.
Both these tunnels on* their
eastern course should strike the
"Green Vein," which, from values obtained at different points,
is the highest grade vein of the
series.

One minute and thirty seconds
sufficed for Alex Roy when he
went into the ring with Harold
Blanton of Hyder for a six-round
bout. Blanton, who outweighed
the Rupert champion by at least
ten pounds, went in to win and
drove the little fellow to the
ropes, where he became entangled and took a nice knock-out.
The fight was finished almost
before it started. In other words
it "died a'bornin' " and folks,
when they got outside, were kind
of dazed.
When Hoy had dolled up he
went over to Hyder to congratulate Blanton on his victory, and
while there arranged for a return match to be held in Rupert

incidental to the organization of
a mining company, the Washington syndicate of Alaaka have
started a financial plan to carry

the property is expected te become a producer.

seven claims on the south fork

if extended, will develop st depth

PRESIDENT   HARDING
THE President of the United States
will during the coming summer pay a visit
to the Territory of Alaska. Here is an opportunity of putting the Portland Canal
distriot still more on the map. Everything possible should be done to the end
of assuring that he pays Hyder and the
district as a whole a visit. The time to
get busy is now, and every section of the
district on both sides of the line should
lend every support possible to any'move
that has such an object in view.
IN 1921,212 people were murdered in
Cook county, Illinois. Cook county has a
population of roughly 3,000,000.
The same year only 57 people were
murdered in Canada, population 8,788,883;
and only 74 in England, population
35,678,530.
England leads the world in crime prevention and eonviction.
Canada, with British traditions of
justice, follows a close second.
Just what connection, if any, John
Bull's beef and 'arf and 'arf has with mental balance in regard to criminals and his
respect to human life and justice, might
make an interesting study.

W. S. FIELDING, Canada's veteran
Minister of Finance, in introducing his
budget in the House of Commons the

bounties, one for copper. Needless to say
this will prove a great stimulant to the
mining industry throughout the whole of
Canada, as it will stabilize one of the
country's greatest industries. Of course
the farmer element in the house is much
opposed to its passage; but if the mining
industry were to receive half the encouragement given to agriculture, our farmers J
would not need to go outside of Canada
for a market half as much aa they do.

YESTERDAY
Hardly could the height of hospitality have been elevated to a
more lofty position than when
the Stewart-Hyder baseball team
handed the Granby smelter hunch
a clean score ef 11 tallies to one
lonesome goose egg. Each time
the boys of Our Camp had a show
to score they rambled out between a couple of bases and
played tag with the visitors until
they were tagged out. And at
that it was a snappy game to
watch, with some sensational
plays, and the feeling always in
the air that the home boys might
reconsider and push in a few runs
jUst to show that they could.
The visiters showed more practice, especially in stick handling
and team work but appeared to
have no edge in individual fielding. In the second frame Sam
Fry grabbed a hot one on  first���

Sam McNeill, who twirled for

when the team sort of settled
down after three runs had been
made and eight men come up.
