Hovland Receives Cable

Riving a reservoir with a capacity of 1,500,000 gallons of water.
By adding a few feet to the
height of the dam. the capacity
of this reservoir could easily be
doubled; but this is unnecessary
es it is estimated that the present supply is sufficient for a
population of 2000. Therefore,
no change is contemplated if negotiations which at the moment
are underway are successful. It
is understood that Mr. Holtman
has had assurances of financial
support for the project, if able
to get possession of the property.
So far he is very reticent about
the matter, except to say that in
in all probability nothing will be
done this year.

A report from Lethbridge,
dated the 22nd, states as follows:
Captain Janny, after virtually
having been awarded his freedom on a nominal bail of $100, is
again on hunger strike. He refused to take ��� the food offered
him at the hospital, and some
alarm is felt for his condition.
The authorities can offer no explanation of his conduct in starting his strike a second time. The
first reports of the reason for
Captain Janny being arrested,
appear in the light Oi later information to have been incorrect.
It appears now that he was arrested for selling stock in his
company, in contravention of a
law in the province of Saskatchewan, which prohibits thnsale of
stock in a company until such
time as the whole affairs of such
company have been investigated
by a board for that purpose, appointed by the government. This
is the law that the captain has
run foul of. He went on hunger
strike in protest of the manner
of his arrest, and the conditions
of the jail in which he was
lodged. This strike lasted for
42 days, he  contenting   hin.ae

town recently, and stated that the
winter camp at the upper showing is
practically completed; a large log building, one and one-half storeys in height,
having been built; in addition to a small
bunkhouse for the night shift. An ore
sorting shed and several outbuildings
remain to be built, but will be completed in plenty of time to avoid the
heavy snow fall.
At the upper showing a crosscut tun.
nel, baing driven to tap the big ore
shoot located last spring, is in^O feet,
and it is estimated should reach its objective in about another 30 feet. The
rock through which the tunnel is being
driven is well mineralized, none of it
assaying less than one ounce in silver,
though this is of no importance except
from a geological standpoint.
At the lower workings the No. 2 tunnel on the Oiympia claim, from which
the recent ore shipments have been
made, is being driven ahead, and stop-
ing is also being carried on. The ore
shoot here continuos to hold strong,
both in values and width, and a large
tonnag i of shipping ore is being accumulated.
Work on the No. 1 tunnel is to be resumed at once. This tunnel is 80 feet
below the No. 2 and on the same lead.
A comparison of the geological conditions existing in the two tunnels has
convinced Mr. Tanner that the ore
showings are both on the same shoot

SUNDAY  SERMON
THE Harvest Festival Service held at
St. Mark's church last Sunday evening,
was one worthy of note; for in addition to
the church being prettily decorated by the
ladies, the sermon on the harvest was one
that will long be remembered by those who
heard it; the only regret is, Ihat while the
congregation was exceptionally large,
there were not still more people there to
hear it, for if Stewart could only absorb a
little more of the spirit which the Rev.
Mr. Moss wished to inculcate, it would
greatly add to the happiness, progress and
prosperity of the community.
"As ye sow so shall ye reap, if you
live for your own material gain and advancement, thinking only of what the
world can give you, and not what you can
give to the world, you will becoma selfish
and self centered; if you sow selfishness
you will reap selfishness with all its attendant sorrows; whereas, if you sow service you will reap service, and in so doing
a greater reward than is in the power of
materialism to grant."
This is the spirit that we need in
Stewart, a recognition of the fact, that
the individual owes a service to his brother
man, not only individually, but collect*
ively. Therefore, let us try and put a
little more of this spirit into effect by get
ting together, and each and every one
'giving a little service for the benefit of the
community.
here ia very good: "What is $e use of
putting people on the land without proper
transportation facilities."        �� O
If more roads were built in the province there would be more people on the
land; more of the mineral wealth would be
developed; and just to the extent that these
two industries would progress to just such
an extent would unemployment in the
province diminish.
Alice Arm appears tc have a good
argument for the construction of 30 miles
of road. What holds good there in this respect
holds good here in Portland Canal. We slso have
good arguments for better transportation facilities; and we will venture to say that every other
new section of the province is similarly situated in
this regard. In fact the crying need of northern
British Columbia is more roads, trails and bridges
in order that the natural resources may be developed.
This is a far more urgent need than the Trans-
Provincial Highway that we hear so much about
from the south. Such a highway may give temporary work to a large number of men. But after
that, what? Would it develop any agricultural,
mineral or timber areas? We feel quite safe in
saying that it might develop a little; but so very
little that it would be difficult to find it even with
a magnifying glass; for the primary reason in
building such a highway is to facilitate tourist
traffic by automobile and not the development of
our natural resources. It would be a minimam of
development with a maximum of expenditure, and
the labor utilized in its construction would soon be
idle, becoming again the problem that it is today.
A trans-Provincial highway is a luxury that
can wait.
Transportation facilities at Alice Arm, up the
Bear, the Salmon, the Marmot, and their tributaries; into the Naas from Stewart; into the Ba-
bine country; Franscies, Ootsa, Nation and Stewart lake countries from the G. T. P. Into the
Findlay and Peace river countries; also on the
Queen Charlotte Islands, are necessities, for the
reason that herein is lying dormant a natural resource wealth that when developed to maturity
will support several millions of people. For in this
territory is lying untouched enormous resources of
God given wealth in the way of fish, timber, agricultural lands, coal, iron, oil, gold, silver, and many
other prescious metals.
Let the at present small communities in this
empire te be stand togethey. Insist on getting
that to which they are justly entitled���

NOTE AND COMMENT
The solid man has no sediment in his makeup.
IT is interesting to note in the last
issue to hand of the Alice Arm Herald
that there is apparently quite an agitation
in the Arm for the construction of a wagon
road from there into the Naas, or more
correctly speaking, Ayianish valley, a
tributary of the Naas. The Herald asserts
thit there are now some 14 or 15 settlers
on the lands of this valley, and that their
shortest route to tide water is via a wagon
road down the Illiance river to Alice Arm.
This is no doubt a good move on the
part of the Alice Arm people and we wish
them every success. If such a road will
encourage agricultural development in the
Naas it most certainly should be built,
providing, of course, that the route is
practical. The Herald quotes from a
speech by Premier Oliver wherein he states
that 80 per cent of the population of tha
province is living on one per cent of its
area, and that millions of acres of land are
lying idle for the want of people to cultivate it.  The point that the Herald makes

ivliNt-S.   ANu   MiNiNG
During the past month two new
mines in the Slocan district, the Anna
and the Whitewater have have joined
the shipping list, which shows there is
still some interest being taken in the
silver-lead mines. The Bell, the Sally
and the Providence still continue to
ship despite the low price of silver.
Gold mining has been much more
active and during the past month shipments have been made from the Gold
Reef Mining Company at Lemon creek,
the Reno Gold Mining company, the
Granite-Poorman, the Velvet and Nugget mines, Sheep creek. The latter is
milling about 100 tous of ore a day,
which could be increased eassly if competent machine miners were available.
Unskilled labor is plentiful.
will almost certainly be the cessation of
work at the Velvet mine. With the
advantage of the Great Northern railway connection at Velvet, Washington,
they had about eight miles to haul their
ore. Now, to haul it to Rossland,
means almost double this distance,
while to ship by railway via Nelson
would be over five times as far. The
new Provincial Highway, which will
pass close to the Velvet mine, is still
five miles away, and work on it has
been discentinued. In view ef the
situation which has now arisen, however, representations are being made to
the public works department to have
work on the road resumed.
The Velvet mine, twelve miles from
Rossland, will probably be compelled to
close down owing to the stoppage of
traffic on the Great Northern railway
from Northport to Rossland. The railway commission has given permission
for the stell on the Canadian section of
the line to be taken up, while in the
United States, the Interstate Commission insists on a service being maintained as far north as the international
boundary. It would almost seem that
the action of the railway commission
in this connection is very ill advised,
and at any rate  one immediate  result

The new concentrator of the Le Roi
No. 2 at Rosslann is in operation. The
ore on the dumps is to be treated first,
after which attention will be given to
the mining of the property.
At the Sullivan mine, East Kootenay,
development is being energetically
pushed, and the daily output of ore has
averaged 950 tons. During the month
the cook and bunk house was destroyed
by fire, but although the outbreak occurred in the early hours of the morning all |the occupants were fortunate
to esoape from the building, minus most
of their belongings. Luckily the two
new bunk houses recently erected or.
the townsite, were available and equal
to taking care of the men.

In certain sections' of Missouri the

A ��mall native of this district was
idterestedK interrogating an eastern
commercial salesman, being from another world, as to his life, connections, etc.
"You  got  a   brother?" he inquired.
"I had one but he died," answered
the salesman.
���'Gat shot?"
"No, he wasn't shot."
"Drink himself to death?"
"Certainly not."

the boy triumphantly. "Them is the

SkiU in Poker
A jury at London sessions were called
on to decide whether poker was an unlawful game. They decided itwas not.
Doubtless the following expert evidence
weighed with them:
Charles Stewart Cox of High Hol-
born, said he had played the game for
14 years. Skill was the governing element in poker. The game aa now
played had not the slightest relation to
the poker of earlier days, which had
won for itself such a bad name.
Counsel���Supposing you had four aces
and a king in your hond, what would
happen?
Witness���I should drop dead.
William Delton, who said he had
played poker for 40 years, stated on
oath that there was a preponderating
element of skill in poker.

wholesale house attempted to
collect the bill and drew a sight
draft on the merchant through
the local bank which returned
the check unhonored. The house
wrote the postmaster of the
financial standing of the merchant and the postmaster ironically replied with an o.k. By
return mail the house requested
the postmaster to stcure a lawyer to collect the amount and received the following reply:
"The undersigned is the merchant on whom you attempted to
palm off your worthless goods,
The undersigned is the president

Sunday on Clad 'Flappers'
At Portland, Oregon, last Sunday,
Rev. Billy Sunday breathed to parents:
"The parents are to blame when "flappers" run around the streets with their
stockingf rolled down, their forms
adorned with peek-a-boo waists and
short skirts, and hair all frizzled up.
"Any man who cun 4ook at the short-
skirted,    bare-necked,    frizzle-headed,
gum-chewing,    fudge-eating    modern weary   one.    ' 'But   the   war   is
flapper without having a moral blowout,
should get a government pension," declared Sunday. On prayer Sunday
said: "Some men will not pray until
:hey see the undertaker get the embalming fluid ready and the quartette
begin to practise 'Lead, Kindly Light.'
