Robert Stewart Here
R. M. STEWART, president of
the Stewart Land Co,, and secretary of the Dunwell Mines, accompanied by Mrs Stewart and
son Douglas, arrived from Victoria on the Prince George Saturday. Mrs Stewart, who has
not been here for twelve years,
has been busy ever since her ar-

Robert Nielson. a mining man I
of thirty years' experience, has
sold himself to a piece of ground.
At least he says so, and from a
description of the property in
which he has become interested,
and from the appearance of the
ore he displayed just before his
departure for Seattle, mining
men of the district say that they
don't blame him, and that they
wish they had the same kind of
a sale in sight.
The ore comes from a group of
five claims bonded recently from
Morris Pederson and Albert Johnson, located on August mountain, near the head of Salmon
glacier, and across it from the
Forty Nine. It consists of solid
galena and grey copper, with
azurite and malachite cooking
out all over it. From its appearance (no assays had been  made
ces, while Mr Stewart has been
looking into matters concerning
his company, as well as spending much of his time at the Dunwell. His visits here will without doubt be more frequent in
the future.
BIG MISSOURI PROMISING WELL
TWO weeks ago it was stated in these columns that num-
' erous runlors were circulating throughout the district
to the effect that very promising results are being obtained in
the development of the Big Missouri. These reports have now
been corroborated by very good authority. Development,
which has been under way since early in the season, is being
rushed, three shifts being employed in each of three branches
-tunneling, surface work and diamond drillng. No efforts
are being spared to prove up as much as possible this year.
So far the rtsnlts obtained ara most encouraging. Development and diamond drill exploration have produced results
that give promise of exploding the theories heretofore expounded concerning this property. Yet it is possibly a little
too early to make any definite assertion.

Dunwell Backer Visits
J. A. O'NIEL HAYES and Mrs
Hayes arrived Satutday from
Victoria on a week's visit to their
fwo sons, Harold and Donald.
The former is well known, being
in charge ofthe Stewart Utilities
power plant, in which both he
and his father are heavily interested. Mr Hayes is one of Victoria's many retired Prairie business men. Having been for
many years Land Agent in Alberta for the 0. P. R., he is particularly well remembered in and
around Edmonton. He is one of
the heavy backers of the Dunwell mine.

of which have the northwest-

mineral belt in this district. The
ore that Mr. Nielson brought
down and took out to Seattle
was broken from a chunk that
came out with the last shot put
into a cut, and which five men
were unable to lift. The vein at
thin place is four feet in width.
Four claims located two years
ago by Mr Nielson arid E. H.

grouped with the property. The

veins.
The property, which was staked a few years ago, and is own-
by Stewart, Haahti and associates, has two largo veins that
strike north and south, and are
traceable on the surface for a
considerable distance. Being at
an elevation of only 800 feet it
is very accessible, and has an
ample supply of water power and
timber available. The work done
up to the present consists only
of the annual assessments. The,
mineralization of the ore so far
exposed is copper, carrying good
gold and silver values.
Last year the Silver Bar was
examined by two prominent in-
gincurs, and as a pit sped was
reported on by them very favorably; thus the syndicate now
carrying on development have
very encouragement.

THE entertainment Riven in the Hotel Stew,
art last Saturday night not only reflects great
credit upon its organizer, Miss Fraser, but also
upon the young ladies who took part in it. In
spite of a very short course of training, entered
into under Miss Fraser's direction, the whole
affair was a very good portrayal of what can be
done locally in the way of amateur theatricals.
Stewart, beyond a doubt, contains considerable
local talent that only awaits proper direction and
encouragement. Now that the first ground has
been broken, it is to be hoped that the good work
will be kept up and that during the winter there
wilL be a number of entertainments given, similar
to that of last Saturday evening.

Canada Faces the Future
With Confidence
/CANADIANS have always been
noted for courage, optimism
and faith in their country.
Canada was not built up by pessimists, nor will Canada continue to
develop if her people allow themselves to become croakers and
grouchers. Canada
is fundamentally
an agricultural
country. We have
a soil and climate
which can grow
the world's finest
agricultural products.
Canadian farmers who have
earned the capital
invested in their
farms out of profits
in f armi n g are
numbered in thousands. These successful farmers
have paid off their
mortgages, stocked
their barns and
stables, bought their
machinery, made a
good living and
brought up their families. It meant hard
work, but today they
are independent.
Money in Mixed Farming
In  recent years, at different points
on the piairies, oats fed to steers have
brought from 70c co $1.07 SS against the
Fort  William price of  42c per  bushel,
while barley used for the same purpose
has brought as high as 99c ������ against the
Fort William price of 57c pci  bushel.
Farmers marketing their coarse grains
in this way lower marketing cost, have
a sure market and m.kc money on their
grain, while at the same time they market
their roughage, otherwise often wasted.
Ths cattle embargo is now oil.   Steers
are worth more money and certain to
make   good   money   for   ths   Canadian
farmer from now on.
Money in Pigs
The Dominion Kspsiimcnidl r-jnna
have proved by actual test that there
is a v to fit tu iccdiiu- pigs. Last yesr at
the Ceatrsl Farm, Ottawa, after paying
for feea, labor, interest and depreciation,
the net profit per pig was still $4.63.
Profits from Sheep
As money-rridkcrs, sheep are hard to
b.-at. In every Province from Prince
Edvard Island to British Columbia are
found many flocks returning generous
profits to their owners.
We Must Cut
Production Costs
Canada is meetin? with the
keenest competition in the marketing of her products. T<> hold
her own and regain her place on
the world's market she must reduce cost ui production.
Tho only way to do this is to
increase production per acre, per
cow or per other unit.
Hut improved quality, also, is
essential to meet market demands.
The quantity and the quality
of the products und the cost of
production in competitive countries is beyond our control.
PriceM of agricultural products
are regulated by world supply
and demand
Hence, decreasing production
will not help tho Canadian
farmer.
Poultry Pays
Poultry makes
money for those who
adopt modern methods, whether East or
West. Little Prince
Edward Island markets co-operatively in
carlots, shipping annually upwards of one
million dozen eszs.
The British Columbia
Co-operative Poultry
Men's Exchange
markets in the same
way, thus saving
ruinous glut in their
local market.
There is a ma*ket
for good Canadian
horses, whether light
or draught.
Grow Seed
Canada's Northern
grown seed possesses
extra vitality. There
is a large market for
it to the south. Canada exports seed potatoes, but imports
other seeds. She has the opportunity
to grow seeds for herself and for export.
The Future
Ten years from now the pessimists of
today will have been forgotten. Britain
has removed the embargo against our
t.ittle. She wants our hisf aud bacon,
our cheese, butter, eggs and apples, our
wheat and flour. As the population of
the United States increases, she will
compete less and less against us on ths
British market. Eventually, she *ill
herself be an importer of many other
food stuffs besides wheat from this
country.
Canada has thc men. the climate, ths
land, the stock and the potential markets uecessary for agricultural suites*.
Let us f*i~ with nil the Uwtua t* -J
sue.ice m* can muster. Let's get to woik
snd pay our debts Canada is moving
forward with conndenc* in Its i-;���-.
