The first flurry of snow, almost, saw the cessation of
all development work on Bear River, but two men stayed
with it, Chas Skonig and Eli Watland, and between then
and last week they drove 22ft of crosscut tunnel and 40
ft of upraise until the air became so bad that a candle
would not burn, then another tunnel 20ft under a main
showing proved their vein to have width of 12ft of
solid ore. It is such men and such work that will prove
the country or disprove it.
OIL RIGHTS and COMMERCIAL SUPREMACY
"There is no intention of barring the Uuited States
from the world's potential oilfields," declared Sir Charles
Greenway, chairman of the Anglo-Sa^on Oil Company,
addressing a meeting of that company in London recently and dealing with the oil controversy between the United States and Great Britian.
"Nobody can reasonably object to American producers
claiming a fair share of the worlds oil supplies, but every country in the world is entitled to object to their demanding a permanentr80 or 85 per cent of the v/orld supply and to resent strongly their opposition to Great
Britian and other countries securing their fair share of
these supplies"
The London Times says the remarks of Sir Charles
Greenway are important because they may be taken as
representing the British official view of the] [controversy.
It might be further added that the remarks are of very
great importance because such a policy if not combatted
from the start will result in another great world war for
supremacy among the nations.
When Count Leo Tolstoy described the great god of
commerce as a nude woman and a courtesan, he saw
nations pursuing something which had the same effect
upon their morals as the harlot does upon the individual
who comes, within her sway. Honor, decency, reason and
all are cast to the four winds, that they may be able
toposess-what?
Canada h-s men,some of them in high places, whose
souls are blighted with this same curse. To satiate their
desire for possesion and to momentarily play with power
they would, and willingly, sell their country and fellow
men into bondage.
Canada today has resources in oil, minerals and coal
that will place her among the nations of the world.
Who is it that places obstacles in the way of keeping
those resources within the family?
Who is it that encourages, and sells our   favours   to,
foreign capital.
The octopus, today, stands first in a handicap race for
our, and possibly one of the world's greatest oilfields.
Why?
British capital and interests are even now being hampered in efforts that vitally affect even this email place.
Why?

Look at the map of British Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is 8'K) miles from the same
point in the Peace River country that
is reachi d in 400 miles from Stewart,
which is tlie natural outlet for tin-
whole northern and eastern interior.
Nearly every settler in the Peace
River district is talking of railway
communication with the coast.
Speaking in broad terms there arc
thirty-two millions of acres of the
Peace River district situated within the
boundaries of British Columbia, nnd
more than forty millions of acres within the Province of Alberta, most of il
being suitable agricultural land for
mixed farming or ranching. In addition there is a vast area of mineral and
timber resources, the extent of which is
only beginning to be realized.
Immense depositi of anthracite coal
have been located and the president of
the Peace River Hoard of Trade is
authority for the statement that this
coal grades higher than Pennsylvania
coal.
Extensive exploration work is being
carried on in connection with otI and
already sturtlii't' results have leen   0D
tained. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
and enough investigation has taken
place to be assured that they are of
wonderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural ras.
The ar^a un er cultivation at present
is only about three hundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
district is about twenty thousand. The
first grain was sent out of the country
three years ago, and consisted of less
than one thousand bushels. Last year
nine million bushels were produced from
about a quarter million acres, the average wheat yield being thirty-live bushels to the acre or nearly double the
average of other portions of Alberta.
The land is also well adapted for the
raising of stock of all kinds, particularly hogs.
It is reasonable to suppose that if
two hundred and fifty thousand acres
are now producing nine million bushels
of grain, that within a very few years
there will be ten million   aires   produc-
. three hundred and titty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
ions. PORTLAND   CANAL   NJSWS,   STEWAKT, b.u, Jan. 22,    1921
