PEACE RIVER RAILROAD PLANS
PREMIER OLIVER returned from
the east on the first of the month, and announced through the press that he has arranged for a conference of the heads of
the C. N. R. and C. P. R., also the Governments of B. C. and Alberta, to take place
possibly some time during next winter,
with a view of ascertaining the best possible means of affording a shorter and
cheaper railway outlet for the Peace River
country than is now available. It appears
that the intention is to in the meantime
collect all possible data on various routes,
for submission at this Commission.
Such a method of tackling the situation sounds like a very sane and businesslike proceedure, as there are several routes
available, the first of which is what is
termed the Brule Lake branch, proposed
to run down from Grand Prairie to the
C. N. R. main line in Alberta. Another is
over the Pine Pass and down to cither
Prince George or other similarly situated
point on the C. N. R. in B. C, and a third,
which has not so far been mentioned by
Mr. Oliver, but which is by far the shortest, most logical, and will afford the cheapest possible outlet for the Peace River
country, is the Stewart-Peace River route
via the Peace Pass, so often advocated in
these columns, and by many ���thers.
Stewart is the logical port for the
Peace River. Stewart is only 375 miles
from Hudson's Hope.
Stewart offers a splendid townsite,
and deep water harbor, open to navigation
the year 'round.
This route will ultimately develop
greater tonnage per mile than any other
route across B. C.
The Stewart Peace River route should
be considered by the Commission spoken
of by Mr. Oliver.
In order taat this be done, immediate
steps should be taken by everyone who has
a dollar invested in Stewart, to have tbe
necessary data compiled, and all available
channels should be explored for its submission before the Commission.

THANK YOU, WILLIAM
There is a man who walks around our
town, and often times in working clothes,
busy as the proverbial bee, when others of
us are, to use the phrase, "all dolled up"
and taking the day off. Every little while
this genial sort of chap comes in and asks
that you sign a paper and give him five or
ten dollars.
It sounds simple, it sounds easy, and
it sounds nice, but to this man all those
who own property should doff their hats,
for his public-spiritedness drives him to
protect our property as well as his own,
and as far as his own is concerned, it is no
greater than others.
If it were not for him, our property j
might burn tonight, and tomorrow may
see many of us broke.   Therefore to him!
the town owes a lot, and to him let it give!
every assistance and every credit.
His name? Yes, he spells it with a capital
"T,"two"o'i,"a"t" and an "h." "Tooth,"
that's it. Now you have it, do not forget that
this man is doing a lot for the town of Stewart.

HIT THE TRAIL
COBALTSLOGAN
Reunion of Oldtimers Will
Commemorate Twentieth
Anniversary of Greatest
Silver Camp
Only three camps in the world
have beaten Cobalt for silver.
"They're 400 years old, we've
only 20. Give us a chance." So
say the people of the big Canadian silver field in an invitation
they are sending out to oldtime
miners to come back to the 20th
Anniversary being held from
June 29th to July 1st, when mining competitions, including a
hand drilling contest, open to all
Canadian miners, will be held.
They back up their statement
with figures which show that
Cobalt has produced over 10.000
tons of pure silver���enough to
put silver spoons in the mouths
of 2,400,000,000 lucky babies.
The world's silver record oi
large camps is:
Silver Production
Locality (Metric Tons) Years
Potosi, Bolivia, 30,000   Since 154"
Guanajuato, Mexico 15.000 Since 155>
Zacatecas, Mexico 14,000 1548���183:7
Cobalt, Canada 10,640   Since 1904
Freiberg, Germany 5,243 1163���189-
Comstock, Nevada 4,820 1859���188'.-
Pachua, Mexico 3,500   1522���1901
The larger camps were discovered and exploited by the   Span- [
iards in their  conquest  of   the;
Americas.    Cobalt   was  discovered by simple  blacksmiths and
firerangers and exploited by typical   prospectors,   nearly   all   of
whom became rich.    It is   esti- \
'mated that Cobalt has   produced
ness such as boots and shoes and
othe/ supplies than 20 foreign
countries. It is interesting to
note that the old timers' reunion
June 28th to July 1st, will find
the camp at the height of its
prosperity. The richest silver
finds in the world's annals have
been made in the past year. A
vein, five feet wide, found just
six months ago, in plaees is solid
silver. Fifty"dollars' worth of
dynamite blasted down $100,000
worth of ore.
Cobalt, while Canada's best
known mining camp, is totally
different from the movie eoncep-
tion. It is a well-built, very orderly place. The town has only
one policeman, and he's grown
portly on his ease. The people,
however, have all the hearty
optimism and the gift for enthusiastic hospitality belonging to the
pioneers. It is not likely that
anyone will have a chance to
sleep when the oldtimers stampede back.

"Toonerville Tactics'*
New nnd easily accessible mineral areas in the Cassiar district
were described  by   A. St. Clair
Brindle, M. E.. in a lecture given
recently in Vancouver under the
auspices of the   B. C.   Chamber
of Mines.   The lecturer declared i
that the Portland Canal  belt of.
mineralization extends for hun-j
dreds of miles further north. He!
gave a detailed account of his!
trips through that section of the |
country, in which he said there
nre two or three immense ore
bodies, one of which, a zinc vein,
is from 20 to 100 feet wide on the
surface and was traced for 10000
feet.
The  audience   was  informed
that there are several American
companies in this field  who   are
preparing to resume operations
again this spring, but the speaker did not know of any Canadian
firms who are   interested.     He
urged Vancouver citizens to take
more interest in the mining   at-j
tractions of the Cassiar,   as   he j
was of the opinion   they   would!
well repay investigation and in- j
vestment.
He described the probable and|
most feasible routes for opening\l shM- on MONDAY the 13th day of
