THE Hospital Board from time to time have come to
the people of this community for funds with Which to
equip and help maintain the Stewart General Hospital.
With this policy we are heartily in accord, and at ail
times willing to lend every possible assistance.
We may be wrong; but we understand that the board
are now in need of funds and will, of necessity, soon have
to come to the people for money; therefore, we wish to
suggest that in justice to themselves, the public as a whole,
and also the management of the hospital for the past two
years, in fact to all parties concerned, the exact condition
of the hospital be published. And,in this connection we
herewith offer the columns of The Portland Canal News
free of charge. In suggesting such publication we refer
particularly to the inventories of hospital furniture and
equipment taken during the past two years. The reason
for allowing such a period is because we understand, that
while an inventory was taken approximately two years
ago, another one was not taiten untiljijust recently.
In suggesting the publication of these inventories, we
do so for the reason that we understand that the one taken
recently shows a considerable deficiency over the one taken
two years ago. And if such is the case the public, as contributors to the hospital, have a right to know what they
are, and the extent of them. If there are no shortages,
this fact, in justice to the board itself.-should be published.

INTERNATIONAL   WATERWAY
MUCH interest is felt in the Northern Mississippi valley over the announcement that the United States government
is ready to take up with Canada the discussion of the St. Lawrence ship canal
project. Rejoicing people seem to assume
that the consent of the United States is
main element in the project.
They have something to learn. This
great project of making ocean ports of the
cities on Lake Ontario was not promoted
in Canada. The people of Canada have
not been waiting with suspended breath to
see whether the United States government
would give it consideration. Even if
opinion in the United States were unanimous in favor of this adventure there would
still be grave obstacles. If the United
States were prepared to pay the whole cost
there would still be difficulties.
It is probable that before the session
of the Canadian parliament closes an ex-
dression of opinion may be given by the
house of commons. No one can say at
present what the decision will be. We
know that Quebec members will be strongly
opposed to the project. Montreal condemns
it. Lake Ontario districts are mostly in
favor of the scheme. Apart from these
sections, which are directly interested one
way or the other, no great interest has
been shown in Canada. It will prob&bly
be found that Canadians generally consider
that at present they need some other
things more than this deep waterway.
land.   This admission leaves the impression that the pact of the Free State leader
with Mr. de Valera is disagreeable to the
former.    Early  announcement   of   this
Dublin agreement did not state that it
included a coalition government of which
Mr. de Valera would be a member.    This
is the most serious feature of the arrangement, for there is no pretense that the
former Sinn Fein leader is a convert to the
supremacy of the British Empire.   Coalitions are not new to the British constitution, but there was never before a coalition
government in the British dominions in
which some of the ministers openly refused
allegiance  to  king  and  empire.    Even
Hertzog declared his allegiance, though he
did it with mental reservations.   If the
Free State h a British state and de Valera
is still a determined republican he can
not honestly be a member of the Collins
administration.
NOTE  AND  COMMENT
All   is  not fair in   love.   Some men prefer
brunettes.
A maker of suspenders is not necessarily a
hold-up man.
A man without a good upper stope is like a;
flower without perfume.
Last week a man in Victoria drank a pint of
shellac.   He saw his finish.
Thc Stewart younj? man who gets up with the
sun. should not stay up later than midnight with
the daughter. H
It is said that George Washington never told
a lie in his life. But he never edited a paper in
Prince Rupert.
New York had 91 murders in 92 days. This
shows that the five-day week hasn't been adopted
yet  by   New   Yorkers.
Stewart has several   born  comedians.    But
that's no reason why they should make durn fools
jof themselves trying to act funny.
An advertisement in a Vaucouver paper tells
of a new Way to paint without oil.    Nothing new
'in that.   Girls have been doing it for a long time.
MR.   STEWART'S   DEFENSE
Pilgrim, refuse to have anything to do with
the man who holds different beliefs from your
own.    You are then classed as Life's greatest idiot.
t-	
The Portland Canal News editor has to contend with two classes���those who want to know
why it was published and those who want to know-
why it wasn't.
WHATEVER may be said about the
arguments of the minister of the interior
in favor of the reciprocity treaty of 1911,
conservatives can find little fault with his
plea for the practical maintenance of the
present customs tariff. Mr. Stewart says
that the government needs the money, and
that income taxes are already so high that
they can not be effectively increased. The
minister is a prairie farmer and has already suffered many things from Alberta
progressives. Because of these neighbors
he represents a" Quebec constituency,
though he has been premier of Alberta.
Bui he does not allow the prairie progres-
siveg to convince him that the time has
come for sweeping reductions in the tariff
or that the policy of protection should be
abolished. This declaration may compel
Mr. Stewart to sit for Argenteuil another
term, but it recognizes the fact t hat the
government has to deal with conditions
and not theories.

GOLD  PROSPECTS IN  OMENICA
Forest Fires

mining activity in the Omenica be landed at Old Hogen, on the
this season is a foregone conclu- 0menica, for about eight cents
sion. Already several parties
have left Vanderhoof for the
northern gold fields. Other
parties have signified their intention of making trips north in
the immediate future. Splendid
opportunities await the experienced gold miner in the Omenica,
according to statements made by
David H. Hoy of the Stuart lake
country. He is an experienced
prospector, having spent years
in the Yukon.
"I  made  a trip in there last
winter,   and   looking over that
per  pound,   whereas in the old
days it cost fifty cents.
"The old bars on the Omenica
river, where considerable money
was taken out in the early days,
have not been worked for years.
After the high water of last year
I would say that good money
could be made there.
"I saw some fine specimens of
quartz when I was in that dis-
triet. If some of those people
who are rushing elsewhere could
be induced to take a look into the
Omenica I am sure of the results,
but they would have to be pros-
by burning the saplings of to-day
part  of the  country, as far as | pectors, not prospective  ones.
mining is concerned, there most
certainly are openings for the
right kind of prospectors,"
he says.
"In the old   days   when there
was  a  rush into the Omenica,

The Cave mine near Union-
town, Utar, was found in a peculiar manner. One Brown was
prospecting on the mountain
above Uniontown, and one evening he saw some bats coming out
of a crevice in the rocks. Next
morning he examined the fissure
and found some indications of
silver ore. He thought the pros-
pect  worth    investigating   and
: staked the ground and commenced sinking a shaft. As it
was not a tunneling proposition,
he made a ladder from a cedar
pole bv cutting the limbs off a
few inches from the body of the
tree.    When he had got the shaft
;down about 15 feet he loaded a
1 round of holes, climbed out and
hoisted up his tools,    ln telling
, the history afterwards, Crown
said that for 15 minutes after the
shot went off  there  was a con-

tinual roar of dust and bats coming out of that shaft. When it
subsided he crept over and
peeped down. There seemed no
bottom in the shaft, only a great
hole yawning into the darkness
below. The prospector hurried
to town for some rope and a
Mormon to enable him to explore the hole. They rigged up
their windlass and he was lowered down 40 feet. His candle
showed him a cave about 70 feet
square, with a small opening at
one end, which led into another
cave somewhat smaller; in fact,
there was a series of these caves
diminishing in size, the further
he went, until he came to the
end, which was about 500 feet
from where he started. On the
roof and floor of each cave were
blocks of silver or great richness.
He sold this mine for $370,000.

Money from the distress fund
of more than one lodge in Vancouver is going to Cedar creek to
succor distressed prospectors who
are in hard straits. Members of
various organizations are writing
home for help, stating their food

are actual need. One lodge has
chipped in to a fund to defray

Asbestos   Near Revelstoke
Gus Lund of Revelstoke has
discovered asbestos on the Col.
umbia river, west of Keystone
mountain. There is a large vein
of talc of high quality outcropping on the summit of the mountain, and this is no doubt associated with serpentine, which is
probably the matrix for the asbestos, so that the discovery
may be important.

AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF ��734,259,619
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive flve-y-jar pcrious: For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $336,562,897
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
nol 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any other Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire,
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

Plenty of room for shops and stores - Mamman must have the best-
Plenty of room for the running sores that rot in the town's breast!
Plenty of room for the lures that lead the henrts of our youth astray-;

Plenty of room for schools and halls, plenty of room for art;
Plenty of room for teas and balls, platform, stage and mart,
Proud is the town���she finds a place for many a fad today;
But she's more than blind if she fails to find a place for the boys to play!

Give them a chance-if you stint them no, tomorrow you'll have to pay
A larger bill for darker ill; so give them a chance to play!

A Rolling Stone
A Toronto man took a run not
long into Bruce county, to a town
where he had lived as a boy. He
accosted a venerable man of some
eighty years, who proved to be
the very person to answer certain inquiries concerning the
place. Finally the Toronto man
sBid "I suppose you have always
lived around here?" "No,"
said the old man, 'T was born
fully one mile from here.'*"
MARY UP TO NOW
Sary had a little lamb.
That day has passed away,
No lamb could follow at the pace
That Mary sets today.
Now, Mary sits at motor wheel,
With skirts too short by half;
No lambkin, stays here airy flight,
But you can see her calf.
Our idea of a really fast guy is
a fellow who can turn  the light:
out and jump into bed before tht
room gets dark.
NOTICE
Longer Skirts, or Blinders
Longer skirts for women,
lower steps for street cars o--
blinders for men. Toronto must
have one of the three in order to
prevent a steady increase in accidents. The women wear such
short skirts that when they start
to climb up the high street car
steps���well, the men can't seem
to keep their eyes to the front
and many accidents occur, particularly among motorists.
