Twenty years ago the amount of business
done by Victoria and Vancouver, in coastwise traffic, was small compared with what it is today; and it needs no great vision to foresee the
tremendous strides the maritime trade of British
Columbia would take were the natural development
lines followed.

The Portland Canal district has one proven
mine, the Premier. It also has many prospects
which, on development, may prove equally as
good. Grass root mines are few and far between.
It takes many years of work and much capital to
make a producing mine as a rule. The district
received a setback years aco from which it is now
recovering, and the time is now opportune for the
development of many properties that may be Premiers in embryo. The prospects are here and
systematic development-should bring satisfactory
results.
The main outstanding features to be considered by the people of the south are that the
northland offers many opportunities for legitimate
business ventures in the development of its dormant resources; and in the expansion of its coastal
traffic consequent upon their utilization; and also
the realization that in opening up the north they
are securing for themselves a tributary territory
whose Dotentisl resources have few er,uo!�� on
this world's surface.

as a whole has not kept pace with that
of the southerly portion which, owing to
various causes, has been able to advance
rapidly; while the north, with its vast
potential resources, has grown but slowly.
The reasons for this state of affairs
may be assigned to the belief of the people
of the south that the north holds little for
them personally, and that their advancement is to be accomplished by the development of their own environments.
* These beliefs have served to build up
the south and will continue to do so. But
if the truth is realized in regard to the
north, its development will become of paramount importance to the people of the
south, who are already beginning io realize
the limitization of their natural commercial area by land.
The ideal location of the cities of Victoria and Vancouver have predestined them
to commercial greatness; but if their
growth is to be hastened it must be by the
enlargement of their spheres of influence,
and the north with its undeveloped wealth
offers untold opportunities almost at their
very doors.
All great seaports have achieved magnitude by their seaborne commerce. The
cities of the south so far have not progressed on their natural lines as they have
on their other resources; but the development of the north offers them the opportunity, an opportunity which, if taken advantage of, must accelerate their advancement to a very great degree.
The policy of the past of securing for
the south the terminals of railways, built
and projected, irrespective of the natural
needs of the province, has not proven successful, nor will such a policy if furthered
continued in, bring results as would be
achieved by the utilization of the waterways of the province, and the building of
short lines of railways into the interior.
The whole northland is tributary to
the cities of the south, but not by any
means by direct lines of railways, but by
ships plying along the sheltered coastline
and connecting with railways tapping by
the  shortest   routes   the coal lands, oil
lands,   and   base  and  precious  mineral
areas of the north.

If the opening up of the northland is
accomplished on  the lines  suggested it
would mean the building up of towns at

interior were available.   And the building

lessening of the growth of the southern
cities, but on the contrary would greatly

Renewed interest is manifested
in the d< velopment _of the
Groundhog coal fields, 90 miles
from Stewart, which is the natural seaport for the potential
country of which the coal fields
are a part.
In order to obtain a market for
the Groundhog coal, which is anthracite, a railway will have to
be constructed and there are
three feasible routes. The shortest would be from Stewart, at
the head of Portland canal, from
which point a railway has been
; built fifteen miles in the direction
of the coal fields. Another route
from tidewater would be up the
Naas river, but this would be 80
miles longer, though there would
be less rockwork and an easier
grade. A third route is from
the G. T. P. railway at Hazelton,
about 150 miles southward. Then
there is a distance of more than
150 miles to Prince Rupert.
The history of the Groundhog
coal fields commences only a few
years ago when locations were
made on a branch of the Skeena
river. Continued prospecting determined the fact that coal outcropped over a large area. Various engineers have made favorable reports on this field.
These coal measures are known
to extend some 70 miles and the
strip is 30 miles wide over which
coal outcrops in different places.

Look at the map of British Columbia

is reiched in 400 miles from Stewart,
which is the natural outlet for the
whole northern and eastern interior.
Nearly every Bettler in the Peace
River district is talking of railway

Speaking in broad terms there are
thirty-two millions of acres of the
Peace River district situated within the
boundaries of British Columbia, and
more than forty millions of acres within the Province of Alberta, most of it
being suitable agricultural land for
mind farming or ranching, ln addition there is a vast area of mineral and

already startling results have   been oh

place to be assured that they are of
wonderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural gas.
The area under cultivation at present
il 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 millicn bushels v/ere nro-.hic**il fmm
about a quarter million acres, the average wheat yield being thirty-five 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, particu
larly 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 hu ten million aerel producing three hundred and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons.

so, walked right onto a couple
cooing and wooing as only lovers
know how. He halted, and these
"sweet words" were heard:
"Your lips are like the leaves," he said,
"With autumn roses tinted."
"Some people autumn leaves preserve,
By pressing them," she hinted.
The meaning of this gentle hint,
The lover did discern;
He threw his arms around her neok,
And glued his lips to her'n.
After hearing and witnessing
the above the devil hit the high
places for home, and while passing the Stewart News company's
store, in a fit of absentminded-
ness, took a drink of water from
the town pump. [Note This
little incident mutt have turned
a cog in the devil's upper stop*,
for as near as we Ikmow, water
is a fluid he rarely drinks, and
knows very little about
