THE GOLD CAMP OF AMERICA
(Alaska Weekly-Seattle.)
WTE HAVE repeatedly called the attention of our readers to the Portland
Canal mining district, and have predicted
that it would become, at no distant date,
the greatest gold and silver producing district on the North American continent.
Each year reports come to us from both
the British Columbia and the American
sides of the Portland Canal territory which
serve to justify our belief and make good
our prediction.
This district is as yet practically untouched in spite of the millions already
taken from the producing mines. Grouped in a small area are such producing and
development properties as the B.C. Silver,
the Premier, the Dunwell, the Riverside,
the Granby properties, the Independence,
the Daly Alaska, the Big Missouri, the
Fish Creek, the Titan and numerous others that have not yet passed the prospect
stage, while approximately seventy miles,
stretching northward to behind Wrangell,
known to be highly mineralized, might be
said to have never been prospected. As
usual, the crying need of the country is
means of transportation. Roads and trails
to facilitate the prospecting and development of this district would mean a return
of thousands for each dollar invested.
In the territories adjacent to Hyder
and Stewart, B. C, the transportation problem is rapidly being cared for, and once
again we say, keep your eye on Portland
Canal, the most promising mining section
in North America.
The situation in this section is in some
respects typical of all Alaska. A great
empire of untouched wealth, with here and
there a camp where effort has been sufficiently concentrated and localized to create profitable working conditions. The
day will come when the mineral wealth
already taken from Alaska will seem as a
drop of water in the sea, but in the meantime we know of no place on earth that
offers more attractive investment possibilities than the Portland Canal district.
We might in passing offer a word to
our Seattle friends in the jobbing and
manufacturing lines. The money for developing this district did not come from
Seattle. Wilh a few exceptions, where
individuals in Seattle saw the possibilities,
the Territory has had no Seattle support.
The Alaska Steamship Company last summer attempted to get behind the district
with a weekly sailing direct to Hyder,!
without a word of publicity from the Seat- j
tie newspapers or co-operation from Seat-1	
tie merchants. The logical result was that:
m. t
the business has gene to Vancouver, B.C., i
where substantial evidence of appreciation
was forthcoming.

Prophetic, Perhaps?
The following beautiful lines
were penned by the late Kingsley
B. McLeod, shortly before contracting the siekness that so
quickly terminated his bright
young life. Did he have a premonition of the transformation
that was about to occur? It requires no stretch of the imagination to read one between the lines
If L Were You
If I were you, and you were me,
How different all things would
be!
But you are you, and I am I���-
No need is there to breathe a
sigh
For things that cannot ever be,
lf I were you, and you were me. I
But whtT that great and Heavenly Power
Bestows on us death's darkest
hour,
When we bright happy angels
be,
Perhaps He'll make me you, you
me.
