a new lead   on   the   Silver   Bar
claim, from which he received
verh   high   silver   values.     Mr.
Bartholf is very optimistic about
being able to build a winter camp
on the Outland Silver Bar for the
purpose of working all winter,
with a view to shipping ore after

RATEPAYERS'   COMiMITTEE
A NOTE of warning may at this time-not
come amiss.   It takes but very casual
observation to realize  that  the  coming
winter is going to be one of the hardest winters
experienced in many years. Industries all across
the continent are closing down, or contemplating
doing so. Thousands of people are being thrown
out of employment as a result, and poverty in the
big cities to an almost unprecedented degree is
assuming alarming proportions. Therefore, it
would be well for us one and all, to prepare as
does the squirrel, for a hard winter.

ELECTION   TALK
YHE meeting held last Friday afternoon
of the committee appointed to take up
the matter of a Liquor Vendors' Store for
Stewart, and also the question of incorporation, was conducted in a sane and
business like manner, and in so far as it
was, will rebound to the credit of the
community of Stewart as a whole.
QUT of the east come the  murmu rings
and rumblings of a Dominion general election.
Just what grounds there are for these speculations
is hard at this time to determine. But if the old
saying, "That little straws tell which way the
winds blow," still holds good, there certainly is an
election in the air within the next twelve months,
for all across Canada the "political pots" are commencing to boil and the party chefs to prepare the

possible, then weigh the advantages
against the disadvantages, in order to arrive at a conclusion on which to base their
recommendations. Until this has been
done any assertions that may be made
would be premature, and therefore not in
the best interests of the district.
The idea of obtaining the support of
the Boards of Trade of the south and the
Manufacturers' Association of British
Columbia to the request of Stewart for a
Liquor Vendors' Store would, we believe,
be hard to improve upon, for in this way
the local member, Bert Kergin, will have
lined up in his support a force of artillery
that will certainly have an effect.
INTERIOR  DEVELOPMENT
���J'HE letting of a contract recently for the
construction of a twenty-five mile extension of the Central Canada Railway
west from the town of Peace River, is in
itself not a great thing, but from it can be
drawn considerable satisfaction for the
reason that it means just thrt much more
development in the Peace River country,
and therefore a proportionately greater
population in that section. Taking a look
at the map it is found that the whole
country through which this railway will
run, is north of Stewart.
The Peace River country is rapidly
filling up with people, and the day is not
far distant when the population will be so
numerous that they will have considerable
weight in determining the policies, of not
only the government, but also the trans-
Subtract from modern life the movie; porcelain bathtubs; vaccum sweepers; electric lights;
instantaneous hot water; and telephones.
Take out phonographs; automobiles; electric
irons and wash machines; and sanitary plumbing.
Banish these things and you have again what
people like to call "good old times."
Who really wants the good old times back?
Occasionally a cynic declaims against the
modern improvements, but he never means it.
The modest home of the average middle-class
Canadian is infinitely more comfortable than the
mansion of those other days called " the good old
times."
The average housewife, relieved of much of
the old drudgery of handwork, has more time for
leisure and recreation. Her family has more recreational opportunities.
The new times have their faults, but they are
the golden age, when contrasted with the "good
old times." They cost us more than the "good old
days" of yore, but aren't they worth the price?

HOMESTAKE MINE
WILL   OPERATE
Work was commenced on the
Homestake mine at Alice Arm
last week by the Consolidated
Homestake Mining & Development Co. Captain Gerhardi,
who is in charge of operations,
arrived in Alice Arm last week
with a party of eight. He states
that it is the intention of the
company to start work as soon as
the camp is fixed up, on a tunnel
390 feet in length to break into
two surface showings, which
have a V formation. A compressor plant will arrive in about
two weeks, and will be shipped
at once to the mine, as it is the
intention of the company to push
the work as rapidly as possible
during the summer.
The Homestake mine is situat��-
at the Kitsault glacier, and was
staked by A. Davidson in 1913.
Present work consists of 20 open
cuts. Assays taken from the
property has averaged 38 ounces
in silver and six per cent copper,
being an average on a 30 foot
cut. A lead extending over 1100
has been traced on the surface
by open cuts.

the meeting of the Prince Rupert
board of trade last Friday night.
It was also reported that A. M.
Manson had a resolution on this
matter which would be brought
in at an early meeting of the
council.

The existence of oil at Quat-

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

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 lind for
mixed farming or ranching. In addition there is a vast area of mineral and
timber resources, theextentof whichls
only beginning to be realized.
Immense deposits of anthracite coal
have been located and the president of
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 and
already startling results have  been o b
tained. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
and enough investigation has -taken
place to be assured that they are of
wonderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural gas.
The arsa under cultivation at present
is only about three hundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
district is about twenty thousand. The
tirjt grain was sent out of the country
three years ago, and consisted of less
than one thousand bushels. Lait year
nine million bushels were produced from
about a quarter million acres, the average wheat yield being thirty-five bushels to tlm 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, particularly 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 aerea producing three hundred and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons.
I
Grand-Dad Experienced the Real
Hard Times
Times, like eggs, are susceptible to various degrees of hardness. The people who are enjoying their hard times sociables
now have nothing on their grandfathers. There were hard times
then, when the country was
new. Grand-dad could have
bought a ten-acre rieM in the
centre of Toronto or Winnipeg
for a $10 note, but he didn't have
the money. He worried over
financing an investment in a yoke
of oxen and a wagon to take the
family into the wilds of the
northwest where he could pick
out a 160 that the boys won't
live and work nowadays. Those
were hard times, of a kind when
a man worked eighteen hours a
day for 25 cents, and a man who
owned a buckboard was in the
limousine class. And yet some
of those resolute, hard-handed
old people braved the hardships
of those times and founded fortune!* for themselves. They did
it by not spending quite all
they earned.
