Oil Lands
"Since the Dominion Govern-!
ment threw open the Peace River
Block for oil stakings several'
weeks ago, hundreds of claims
have been registered and many I
Vancouver people are preparing
to leave for she new oil fields.
This oi! area extends over j
thousands of acres lying adjacent to the Rooky Mountains on
the East side, is closer to transportation by many miles and
more accessible than the Fort
Norman district. The Government has reserved alternate sections of land in checker board
style and will derive not only the
royalties but the benefits of the
adjacent improvements."
The above item from the Vancouver Sun should prove of interest, for if oil is struck Stewart
is its natural outlet on the Pacific Coast.
The  strategic  position  that

STEWART   LOCAL   NOTES
position that Stewart occupies to
the Peace River country is not
so well known as it should be. but
it was realized by Sir Donald
Mann when he secured terminal
facilities here and acquired the
charter of the Canadian Northeastern Ry through to Edmonton
several years ago, at that time
the Groundhog coal fields were
in the lime iight and surveys were
made to Reims creek where several seams of coal had been opened up, distant 142 miles from
Stewart. Surveys have bee-ff
made; through to the Peace River
and several routes are availabe,
so should oil be struck it would
bean additional incentive to the
building of the railroad, the charter to which, it has been reported, has been acquired by the C.
P. R. in connection with their acquisition of the Edmonton Dun-
vegan Line.
N. VV. Mining Truth of Dec 2,
has the following, which is interesting in veiw of the fact that;
although surveying has been proceeding for some time, local officials of the Co have denied that a
tramway was being projected.
"Riblet Tramway Co, of this
city (Spokane) has been commissioned by the American Smelting
& Refining Co., through H. A.
Guess managing director of
mining operations, who spent
some days in the city a few weeks
ago, to make a complete investigation of transportation problem
confronting the Premier Gold

Portland Canal District, with the
ultimate purpose of constructing
an 11 mile aerial tramway to tide

water at Stewart It is under
stoood tiat it has been found almost impossible to keep the road
from the mine in repair, at least
with economical results, though
large sums have been spent. The
drop between the No.2 tunnel,
where shipments originate, and
tidewater is about 1400 feet, of
which 900 feet occurs in the first
three miles. It is believed that an
aerial tramway can be constructed at a rearonable expense, although some power may be necessary to start the load and keep it
moving over the  flatter   areas.
The mine now has several hundred tons of high grade ore
ready for shipment, average value
being estimated at about $500
per ton in silver and gold.

STEWART, B. C.
H. ZEFERT
TAILOR.
A correspondent from Alice Arm writes that the residents of that place are building for themselves, by voluntary effort, an open air skating rink 50x120.
We mention this matter because there is not at the
present time in Stewart, any organization, or movement
under way to furnish either the incentive or the means,
to develope and make the most of the winter sports.
As suggestion we would propose that a snowshoe and
outdoor athletic club be formed amongst the young folks
and trips to various parts of the country planned.
Also we would suggest that as a means of providing
clean, healthy amusement for the youngsters; that a platform and runway be erected on one of the side streets
where they can have a toboggan slide. Some assistance
is already promised but we should like to hear from
others.
In connection with an item appearing in another column, having reference to the Peace River Block and also
in regard to a wire published some time ago, stating that
an option had been taken on the Canadian Northeastern
charter and the P.C.S.L.Ry., it is significant to note that
an article, purporting to come from Vancouver appeared
in the Seattle P-I. previous to the statement made by R.
C. Campbell-Johnson in the Vancouver papers, that a
big corporation backed by the British Government had
secured an option on Sir Donald Mann's charter and railway.
The article states in part that "Engineers recently
arrived on the coast v* ho intimated that they were associated with the C.P.R., and allowed the inference to be
drawn that the six months work they had been doing east
of Stewart was in the interests of a new railroad to connect the Edmonton & Dunvegan Ry. with the Pacific
coast." The article further goes on to state that at "Fort
St. John, near the boundary where they were camped it
was common conversation concerning what is going to
happen to the country when the C.P.R. gets its new line
through." It also states that the understanding new is
that an option has been taken on the'eharter that Sir Donald Mann acquired in 1912 for the construction of a railroad across northern B. C. from Stewart up the Bear
river, through the Groundhog basin to the wertern terminus of the Edmonton Dunvegan railroad.
