ON INCORPORATION
FROM time to time during the past
year or so there has been considerable discussion, both publicly and privately, concerning incorporation of Stewart under
the Village Incorporation Act. As with
every other question so with this; some
are favorable and some opposed; then
again the majority have been non-committal, awaiting further information upon
the subject.
The Village Incorporation Act is a legislative development of the last two or
three years, therefore it has up to the
present been looked upon by many as more
or less experimental legislation, resulting
in the cautiously inclined preferring to
await its working out in other towns, before recording themselves as being in favor
of applying it to their own home town of
Stewart. This has all been wise and commendable precaution. However, time is
passing, and with it numbers of opportunities, which may be termed object lessons,
are presenting themselves, which offer
ample scope for study r.r.d the psssibilities
of its intelligent application to Stewart.
As there seems to be considerable misunderstanding of the powers granted by
the Act in question, and its actual appli-;
cation  to any iudividual community, wej
publish here, by courtesy of the Princeton
Star, an article and communication appearing in that publication's issue of Feb.
22nd last, which appears to contain information that shonld be of interest locally.
"While here two weeks ago Fire Marshal
J.A.Tnomas was asked several questions regarding the advantages of village incorporation. At
the time he admitted he was not conversant with
the question, Upon his return to Vancouver he
wrote to Mission City which had taken advantage
of the yillage incorporation, for information and
we reproduce the reply received by Mr Thomas.
J. A. Thomas, Esq.,
Vancouver, B. C.
Dear Sir:���With reference to your letter of February 5th.   I beg to say that Mission City and itt
inhabitants are more than pleased with the results of incorporation.
We entered incorporation as a "village" with
considerable fears but one year as a village has
convinced even the most obstinate opponents on
incorporation, as to itB merits.
As to demerits it has none���it is absolutely
0. K.
The government surrenders all general taxation to the "village" but schools and police are
administered by the government or the school
district; everything else we control.
Coit of administration is hard to determine,
but is very little, and is determined by the number of officials you employ.
Mission City finished up the first year with
between $1000 and $2000 surplus, and that without increasing the rate of taxation, as imposed by
by the government previously.
Our paid officials number three; clerk ar.d
collector, J. A. Barr; myself as assessor, and Mr
F. Hughes road foreman, with a gang of road
workmen of the number of two to five, when required; in addition we have three commissioners
who are paid $100 per annum.
If you procure a "Village Incorporation Act"
from Victoria you will be able to se�� the powers
of same.
The one great advantage of a village is that
they cannot get into debt, as they cannot borrow,
except for current expenses.
Trusting this will be satisfatory.
Faithfully yours,
(Signed)    Anthony S. Tauibut."

j 20 tons of concentrates for New

; Alaska.    The   concentrates  are
1 of gold,  copper and   palladium,
i the latter being* worth   $85  an
ounce.    Formerly these concentrates were shipped   to   Tacoma
for recovery of the gold and cop-
! per values, while the palladium,
\ which the smelter was not look- i
I Those attending are requested ing for, was thrown away.    But
to wear  something   or  bring in an->' case the Palladium, being 1
refractory, conld not be recover-

I New York one being the only |
[one in the country equipped toj
