G. W. Smith, after disposing

and intends to make this cistrict

BOOMERANG FOR KNOCKERS
It has of late been most forcibly brought to our attention
that there is under way considerable knocking of the Bear
River mineralizations. A certain amount of knocking is, of
course, to be expected, but un fortunately, the knocking done
in this case, in spite of the fact that it is not warranted, has
tended to an extent to retard development.
However, the tide is now setting the other way, and the
knockers of the Bear will soon ft el the effects of the boomerang they so carelessly threw out.
Several factors are conducive of this change, foremost of
which is the spectacular results being obtained on the Dunwell. Another is that after watching the entire district for
some years, the only sections of it in which the Granby Company has acquired control of properties are down the Canal
and up the Bear River. In the latter case they have two properties, the George and the Sunshine, which, despite rumors
to the contrary, they still retain. And last, but not least, is
the fact that several engineers of experience, who after much
coaxing, made necessary by the knockers, have examined the
Bear, and as a result have become most ardent boosters.
A new era is dawning for the Bear and other sections,
such as the Marmot, Georgia River and down the Canal. Their
extensive mineralizations will soon attract as much attention
as the Salmon.
Dalby B. Morkill, P. L. S.. has
returned from Vancouver and
resumed his work up the Salmon.
Dr. McLaren, well-known ge-
ofogist from London, England,
is visiting the B. C. Silver and
other Salmon river properties.
The Bear river bridge, which
went out again last week, is being replaced by a temporary
bridge for pack horses and foot
passengers. It is expected that
this structure will be completed
within a week.
James Stewart of the Stewart
Land Co. returned Saturday from

PUBLICITY RESULTS
THIS week brings confirmation of the
oft-asserted fact that there is no publicity
as effective as that obtained through the
medium of the country's Press.
THOUGH the Portland Canal News,
as papers go, is a very small publication,
yet the publicity that is by it given to tho
district is clearly shown fn this week's outside mail. In several instances it is quoted in the big dailies of the south concern-
ing mining news of the district, and in the
same mail arrived a column and a quarter
editorial clipped from Alberta's leading
daily, the Edmonton Journal, of Monday,
July 23d, entitled "Peace River to Stewart." This article deals entirely with the
series of editorials carried in these col-r
umns a short time ago, advocating such a
railway.
IT IS a most gratifying result that
has been obtained, for carrying the weight
that the Journal undoubtedly does, being
read and quoted in every home, particularly in northern Alberta, it is a source of
great satisfaction to read the stated editorial, quoting the News, and strongly advocating Stewart as the logical terminal
for a Peace river railway, and shipping
point for its products.
THE ABOVE is not written with a
view to patting ourselves on the back, but
rather to let our readers know the outcome of the articles written, and that the
question of this point as a Peace River
Port is a live issue, being advocated not
only locally, but also by the people of the
River and Edmonton.

CANADA is endeavoring to regain her
after-the-war stride
in the midst of many
difficulties, ��� debt,
deflation  and  depression being
some of them.
Quack remedies and academic
theories beset her path on every
side. Some suggest that our debt
worries can best be eased by going further into debt. Others
preach blue ruin, decry their own
country and indulge in mischievous propaganda generally,
while still others look for a new
social order or some miraculous
sign to indicate a better coming
day���all this in apparent forget-
fulness of the fact that just as
there was no royal road to win
the war, there is now no royal
road to pay for it or regain our
former buoyancy, vigor and
confidence.
Some are leaving Canada hoping to escape taxation, only to
find there ib no escape anywhere.
In seeking for easy remedies too
many of us overlook the fact
that the greatest remedy is honest, hard work faithfully and
intelligently performed, accompanied  by  old-fashioned  thrift.
It takes time.it takes patience,
it takes grit. But every Canadian
knows in his heart that Canada
is coming through all right.
Our Experience Proves It
Look back over the path Canada
has trod. The French Colonists,
cut off from civilization by J.UOO
miles of sea, faced a continent���
e wiMoraese���without the aid of
even a blazed trail. They had
to fight savages, frosts, scurvy,
loneliness and starvation.
The United Empire Loyalists
subdued an unbroken forest in
one generation, growing their
first wheat amid the stumps and
snags of the new clearing.
The Selkirk settlers came to
Manitoba when the prairie was a
buffalo pasture, and grew wheat
where none had grown before
and where those who knew the
country best at that time said
wheat would never grow. Today the Canadian prairies grow
the finest wheat in the world.
In proportion to population Canada
stands to-day among the wealthiest
nations in the world, with average
savings on deposit per family of
$800. Canada's foreign trade per head
of population stands amongst the
highest of the commercial nations,
being $192 per capita in 1922-23, aa
compared with $135 in 1913-14, the
"peak" year before the war.
New Opportunities for
Canada
In Canada, although prices in the
world markets fell below war level,
our i.'Miiers reaped last autumn the
largest grain crop in Canadian history, and Canada became the world's
largest exporter of wheat, thus in
large measure making up for lower
prices.
Last year, Great Britain, after sn
agitation extending over thirty years,
removed the embargo on Canadian
cattle, and a profitable and practically
unlimited trade is opening up for
Canadian stockers and feeders.
"The 20th Century belongs to
Canada"���if Canadians keep faith.
The next at tide will suggest practical opportunities toi  profit making

In the first six months of this
year the Granby company produced 16.000,000 pounds of copper, running somewhat ahead of
the scheduled rate of 30,000,000
pounds per annum. Production
costs and earnings are comparable with those of last year, considering two increases in wages
since October 2, 1922. Work is
progressing rapidly on the company's new concentraotr at Anyox scheduled for completion
about first of the year. This
mill will add materially to the
flexibility of operations and improve furnace metallurgy thru
production of concentrates from
ore not entirely suitable for direct smelting.
