In spite of low metal prices and

is this season experiencing considerable development work, and
as each month goes by the properties on wkich work is being
done look more promising.
OUTLAND   SILVER   BAR
This property consists of four
claims, the Mountain Girl, Bar
Silver, Mineral Zone, and Silver
Bar, and is situated on the west
side of the Salmon river glacier,
about 23 miles from the Stewart
dock, and on the Canadian side.

John Haati came down from
the Silverado, Saturday night,
and reported that he has located
another, and very much better
looking, lead on this property.
This makes ten high grade leads
that have to date been located on
the property. John says nil the
other leads look good, but this
looks the best of the lot. The
assay results have not yet been
obtained.

Mr. Mackenzie states that the
development of the mineral resources of this district have been
retarded, owing to the fact that
all the early government geological reports dealing with it,
stated that while there are here
large bodies of ore, they are of a
very low grate, and until further research work  is  done  and
m'"" economical means of
treating them is discovered, they
���annot be considered as of a
commercial value.

chance. Will this money be used to improve the
condition of the widow, the orphan and the
, maimed? If not, then it is not in any way reparation; but is nothing but a contemptible money-grabbing commercialization of their sacrifice.
NOTE  AND  COMMENT
Cheer up!   The   finger   of   wealth points to
Stewart and the Portland Canal district.
If you are not satisfied with  Stewart take a
trip and see if you can find a better town.
Wealth lessens rather than increases human
happiness.    Millionaires who laugh are rare.
The man who pays for his  weekly paper in
advance is one of the noblest works of creation.
improvement   over   the   old   and   hap-i!pitai?   Or the hell tortures of those who were left
hazard manner adopted in the past rfor in
this way collections will be facilitated, in,
that they will all fall due on the same date.
If a member joins in the middle of the
year he will get a reduction in his membership fee in proportion to the length of
time still to expire before the end of the
Association year.
Another iaea that will be introduced,
is a change in the constitution as it affects
membership.   At the moment any one that
pays his dues is eligible to become a member of the Association.   This has worked
a hardship on the community, in that the
transient  has  had as  much  say in the
affairs of the organization as has had the
ratepayer or business man, and has worked
to the disadvantage of the Association, for
the reason that it has alienated the support of a lot of people who should take an
active interest in its welfare.   If the idea
that will be introduced is accepted this will
be changed; for by it before an applicant
for membership in the Association is eligible such applicant will be required to be
either a ratepayer, a bona fide business
man in the town or district, or the owner
of mineral claims in the district.   -
Doubtless there will be other changes,
which at the moment have not bubbled to
the surface, but which will be brought forward at the meeting.
Some such organization as the Citizens' Association is absolutely essential to
the welfare of the district, more so today
than ever before. For while a great deal
of very useful work has been accomplished,
there is still greater work to be done, and
the support of every permanent citizen
of the community is needed as never before, that is if the problems that confront
the district as a whole are going to receive
the attention that they demand.
Let every person in the town or district, that has a dollar invested in it, go
to Saturday night's meeting determined,
and not afraid to get on his feet and speak

STEWART,    B.   C.
It is easy work to write articles for a newspaper. All you have to do is to sit down, sharpen
a lead pencil, and write what you think. The
writing is easy.   The thinking is hard.
Hon. Dr. King, minister of public works, will
visit Northern British Columbia in August. If
the minister hasn't corns on his feet he should
take a walk over the Portland Canal mineral zone.
"Playgrounds of British Columbia," the new
booklet sent out by the Canadian National Railways, Avhich includes the Grand Trunk Pacific-
railway and steamship *lines. is one of the best
works of advertising matter, setting forth the advantages of the province, gotten out this year.
The book is an earnest endeavor to place British
Columbia before the traveling public in an attractive and enlightened manner. The book is being
placed through many eastern points of the United
States and Canada and should result in much
material benefit to the commonwealth.

The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
fs strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value

inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any other Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

Look at the map of British Columbia
with an 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
