ELECTRIC LIGHT
In the matter of endorsing the application for a franchise which local men are to make at the next session
of the Legislature, the people here will do well to consider the fact that electric light and water, for fire protection, are now vitally necessary to the growth and
development of the town and no obstacle should [be put
in the way of securing those utilities.
In granting a'franchise, however, the government will
be well advised to protect the future city that may some
day come into being in every possible wiy.
Having the exclusive right to supply light, power,
telephone and water to the people of Stewart and vicinity
the Company must perforce give assurance that adequate
and continuous service will be given and maintained.
The general public will endorse the fact that the services are needed and wanted, it is then up to the government to see that they are protected.
Seven meetings of various organizations in one week
contitutes a record.    Who said Stewart was dead?
LIBERTY vs LICENSE
Liberty of action is an Anglo-Saxon perogative, but
there is a sharp dividing line between 'liberty' and 'license'
Liberty of action must carry with it the utmost consideration for others. If this consideration is lacking
liberty becomes license and license is an affront to all
that stands for good citizenship.
All broadminded citizens are prepared to allow a great
latitude in the manner in which others conduct themselves in having a good time but the fact that liberty
does not constiute license must not be lost sight of.
From the beginning of history, and continuing no
doubt until the last page is written; Life has been and
will be a struggle to subdue the element in the individual
as well as the world at large, that is always endeavoring to transmute liberty into license.
The dividing line must be maintained, for this element
strikes at the foundation of the home itself.
That the New Years dance given by the Stewart Citizens' Association was considered a success was due,
perhaps in no small measure, to the stand taken by those
in charge to uphold the dignity of the rights of liberty
versus the frowardness of license.
A great deal of intercut is being manifested here, as it
no doubt is elsewhere, in the possible appointees to the
post of liquor vendor.
Oil, however, supersedes even the liquor vendor question as a topic of conversation. Some hard trips are being made beside a roaring coal stove.

Look at the map of British Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is 8<X) miles from the same
point in the Peace River country that
is reach' d in -100 miles from Stewart,
which is the natural outlet fof 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. In addition there is a vast area of mineral and
timber resources, the extent of which is I
only beginning to be realized.
Immense deposits of anthracite coal:
have been located and the president ol
the Peace River Board of Trade is
authority for the statement that this
coal grades higher than Pennsylvania
coal.
Extensive exploration work is being
carried on in connection with oil anil
already startling results have been   ob.
tained. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred foet
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 under 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, particu
larly hogs.
lt is reasonable 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 and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons.
