The Sslnion River Trading Co. desires to furnish its many friends and
patrons with as complete stock of sup-
; lies as can be obtained in a badly disorganized market. Retail dealers
throughout the country find that ready
money forms a great factor with their
supply h luses for complete and prompt
service. This condition is forcing
thousands of business houses to do bus-
iness only on a cash basis. Whiie this
condition has not been put in practice
in all districts, conditions are such that
it may be one of the possibilities. To
avoid the inconvenience prompt settlements of accounts with your home

SPECIAL CHURCH SERVICE,
JINING activity on Bitter Creek already this spring has resulted in a small stampede in that section and  a  number of claims have been staked there.    The gratifying results from the operations of C.N. Tubman and Ins associates at the L.L. & II. group, owned by Jack Harkley of Stewart, have shown a lead 27 feet  wide with  good
assay returns in gold and silver and ft large development program -is about to be undertaken.
Bitter Creek, like other see-ions of the district in 1910, caused considerable excitement, but not sufficient work
was done, the low price of silver and th ��� financial depression soon afterward, not being any incentive to development.    But conditions are changed now and Bitter Creek is once more in the public eye.

Building activity hi Stewart continues in spite of the lumber shortage.
Eleven new building have just been
completed or are nearing completion.
Carpenters are receiving good wages
and, though things have slackened up
a bit in the last few days, there are
evidences that busy times in the buil
ding line nre ahead. A shortage of
not only lumber but material is felt.
The new buildings practically  com-
Ipleted  include   the   Gibson    block   on

NOTICE
1-0 the Stewart baseball team will leave
for Alice Arm early Sunday morning
for the Empire Day game and first in
the Portland Canal League schedule.
The Stewart team is the most promising aggregation of ball-tossers this
far north, say those who have seen the
team in practice, and they are expected to win the silver cup offered by
Col. Hiam. In Tiny Daly the team has
a dinger with a fast ball that has already won him a reputation. Billy
Smitheringale is a southpaw heaver
with a well educated ball tha' saved
Stewart a worse defeat last season.
In Buchanan the team has a man
who can hold Daly, which is saying a
mouthful. Moose Baxter on the first
sack has been playing for years and
in fast company. The team averages
well with the Btick.

STEWART, B.C., May 21. 1920
This newspaper is o-e year old today.
It has received a steady increase in
advertising business and the circulation increase is an evidence of the appreciation of readers of the mining
news of the district aim the local news
of Stewart and vicinity. Stewart has
grown surprisingly during the past
twelve months. It has been said that
a town's barometer is its newspaper.
The town is full of business, optimism
and good will.
[ lean years wear smiles  that wont come
ofF for prosperity beckons at  last and
I their faith is being rewarded.
Houses and shacks for sale or rent.
Lots $303 each, within three blocks of

for Macfarlane & Mahood.
PROFESSIONAL   CARDS.
Not alone the high price of sil/er
which caused the renewal of development in this district, but the proven
permanence of ore bodies assures an era
of prosperity which is already in evidence. Large development proprams
are being undertaken by several mining
companies. Many more companies are
undertaking preliminary work. An influx of prospectors means exploration of potential mineral area.
Yes, indeed, things are different
from a year ago.
Very soon now Portland Canal News
will increase its size. We believe we
have been delivering the kind of goods
the residents here and those interested
in progress and mining development
here appreciate.

A year ago Stewart presented the
heroic spectacle of a town arising from
adversity and wreckage. The heavy
snows of the past few years had
crushed many of its buildings and ad- ���

Today there are few signs of wreckage
left. Optimism is the keynote everywhere and the town looks it. Those

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 20 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land arc open for pros-
pecting.
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 I lie British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titlps are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.
