Lots Purchased by Residents���Best Government
Auction Sala on Record.
"Stewart citizens are certainly
backing their town to the limit."
remarked J. W. Smith, in the
coarse of a conversation concerning the sale of government lots
here. "This is the most successful sale of its size ever held
in the province. It shows conclusively the faith held by actual
resident* not only in the future
uf ths town, but in the mining
district which is responsible for
the town's existence."

Reports published some time

H. B. Stoner, in charge of development at the Stoner group
under R. R. Wilson, managing
engineer for the Big Missouri,
Unicorn, International and
Stoner properties, reports that
the first building at tha upper
camp is completed and mining
has commenced, in a small way,
pending the arrival of building
material from Seattle, when the
crew will be increased. At present about ten men are employed.
The camp is at an elevation of
1350 feet, and is reached by way
of the Daly Alaska  trail,   being
only ten minutes walk from the
upper camp of that property.   A
tunnel started by Mr. Stoner last
fall   is to   be continued, and a
considerable amount of surface
prospecting done on five leads,
all of which are in  close  proximity to  the  camp.  It  is expected that the ground   will   be
thoroughly diamond-drilled, and
if the showings found   warrant,
a long tunnel will eventually be
run from near the foot of fche hill
to  tap   all the veins at depth.
The group consists of 22 claims
and  is  situated on the Alaska
side,   between the Daly Alaska
and the boundary line.

easily accessible from the coast has thia
belt even been touched. Hundreds of
creeks in which good "float" is to be found
still await the prospector. And as many
more prospects still await capital to develop them.
It waa truly said two years ago by that
mining writer, F. H. Mason, that the Premier mine would make Northern B. C,
and that Northern B. C. would financially
save the entire Province.
Capital and transportation facilities
are all that is needed to make this belt one
of the greatest mineral producing areas
in the world.
AN EPOCHAL EVENT
ONE OF the biggest forward steps
taken for some years toward building the
town of Stewart occurred this week when
J. W. Smith, Inspector of Lands for the
Department of Lands, Victoria, offered
for sale at public auction some 700 lots in
Stewart and 30-odd in Hyder B. C, disposing of some 300 to local people, many
of whom intend to build during the coming summer.
While the sale in 1910 was an oceasion
for much more spirited buying than the
one just held, owing to the railway project then being undertaken by Sir Donald
Mann, i?"3 sale held this week is far more
beneficial to the town, in that the purchasers are all local people who have already
made their homes here or intend doing so.
The undoubted success of the aale was due
to two outstanding features���first, the
courteous and considerate manner in
which Mr. Smith handled it, and second,
the thoroughness with which he examined the whole situation, establishing the
upset prices upon actual and not speculative values.
No aale could ever be more harmonious, for nowhere waa there a single complaint to be heard. The Department and
Mr. Smith in particular are to be congratulated upon the manner in which the
whole affair waa conducted.
AN UNTIMELY JOKE
A remark by George Eliot that "a difference of taste in jokes is a great strain
on the affections,0 should be considered by
Westminster. The House of Commons
has given one reading to a bill requiring
ships entering British waters to carry a
quantity of intoxicating liquor. It is explained that Britain has the same right to
order ships to be wet as the United States
has to compel them to be dry. Of course,
the analogy is false, since Britain has no
domestic law making the use of liquor
compulsory on land. The bill is admittedly intended as a joke. That condemns it,
for the only kind of humor that is legitimate in legislation is undonscious humor,
which Is quite common in statutes.
Today's miracle will be common tomorrow.
Use your head.   That's how the woodpecker
built his home.
A Spokane doctor says we are what we eat.
If that is so, avoid cheese.
A BRIGHT FUTURE
Consumers can hardly be expected to use refined language when discussing the manipulation
of raw sugar.
Stewart is old enough, large enough and
pretty enough to break away from the unorganized
class.   It is time for a change.
One of the American railways is having its
dining cars papered. To correspond with the
waiters' tips, a silver shade would be appropriate.
Two Yakima men recently killed 118 rattlesnakes in one day. Oldtimers say the snake crop
is nothing like it used to be in pre-Volsted days.
TO THE people of the North, possibly
tha most interesting item contained in the
annual Report of the Minister of Minea
just issued, is the following:
"It ia noteworthy that the Northwestern District produced 67.7 per cent of
the tonnage of ore mined in British Columbia in 1922, carrying about 55 par cent
of the total value of tha metalliferous output of tha Province."
This condition is most interesting
when it is remembered that up to the moment the mineral belt which is responsible
for this record, extending aa It does, from
the Hudatm Day ma���tain region, north
across tha Skeena anal Naas rivers to Alice
Arm, up paat the iSaiiaad Canal, on to
the Unuk and lakut rivers and across the
Stikent, ia aa yet hardly scratched, when
the immensity of that territory is considered. In fact, fully half of it has not aa
yet been even progf��gf��at    Only at points jl
It is proposed to taKe a referendum in Oregon
on the manufacture of oleomargarine. This is a
slippery question and furnishes scope for a new
branch of bootlegging.
If it takes a four-month-old woodpecker, with
a rubber bill, nine months and 13 days to peck a
hole through a cypress log that is large enough to
make 117 shingles, and it takes 165 Bhingles to
make a bundle worth 95 cents, how long will it
take a cross-eyed grass-hoppar with a cork leg to
kick all the seeds out of a dill pickle?
