ENDORSATION OF INCORPORATION
GRAVE DANGER
IT SEEMS to be a strange thing that
a public road can be allowed to drift into
such a dangerous condition as has the
Stewart-Hyder road.
Last week we published in the news
columns a short story, as to how one man,
walking out to the Thursday morning boat,
was nearly struck by several hundred
pounds of falling ice. Others from time
to time have had similar experiences, and
with the increase of traffic, aud no action
taken to remove the menace in soft weather, it is only a matter of time before
there will be a serious accident.
It would appear tnat an imperative
duty of Government is to make a highway
safe and maintain it so.
There is no reasonable nor logical excuse why the local road foreman should
not be instructed to remove, during soft
weather, the hundred and more tons of ice
AFTER having observed the effect of
incorporation under the Village Incorporation Act, upon the town of Smithers for
more than a year, Burns' Lake has decided to avail itself of the advantages to be
derived from this Act and do likewise, according to the Observer, dated Dec. 13, a
weekly paper published in that small, but
thriving community, situated on the G.T.P.
main line, east of Smithers.
This will be most interesting to those
of onr local readers who from time to time
have discusstd the incorporation of Stewart under this same Act, and who have
been watching, from a distance, its operation in the town of Smithers. The fact of
its adoption by the near-by town of Burns'
Lake would appear to be as a seal of endorsement, as well as a very practiial recommendation. One need go no further in
search of evidence as to the working out
of this Act. It has evidently been very
satisfactory in Smithers, and offers considerable advantages, otherwise Burns
Lake would not have adopted it.
The paper referred to announces the
names of three men who have been appointed by the Government to act as a
Board of Commissioners and to hold office
until their seccc^crs l.ave been elected. A
Clerk of the Village hss been appointed,
and these officials, at the time the Obser-i
ver was published, were engaged in preparing a voters' list, and other details
necessary for an election of three Commissioners.

returned Tuesday night from a
h inting trip down to the mouth
of the canal, taken with Walter
Blanton, Harry Tanner and Fred
Dorey, of Hyder, in Fred's gas
boat, the Sea Lion. They took
along nets and lines to capture
monstrous and ferocious crabs
that terrorize the southern end
of the canal, and also a complete
armament for bag_ing the wary
and succulent clam.
On account of rough water
'they had little success with the
crab=, but the storms and rainy
weather had lulled the usually
watchful clams into a sense of
fancied security, so that the
NimroJs could approach them
with no caution at all���almost
hardly���instead of having to
sneak up on them, as would have
been the case had the weather
been clear. When it rains, the
clam gazes soulfully at the sky
and forgets��� forgets. Thus it
was that the hunters bagged
several sacks full of these seashore delicacies before the main
herd took fright and fled into
their sandy shafts.
Aint Nature grand?
The game was stowed in the
cellar of the Sea Lion. On thej
way home a storm was encoun-}
tered that compelled anchoring
overnight in Halibut Bay. A;
heavy swell rocked the boat un-:
til the clams were drenched with!

distillate. This made them gasp
