BG MEETING
PECK BOOSTERS
Meeting in Baldwin Block
Appoint Strong Committee���Peck Here Saturday
A large and well attended
meeting of supporters of Colonel
Peck met in the Baldwin block
on Tuesday evening for the pur-
pcue of electing a campaign committee. H. P. Gibson called the
meeting to order and made a few
opening remarks, dealing with
the good work that Colonel Peck
has done for the district in the
past, and for this reason considered that he is entitled to the
support of the electors of this
portion of the constituency. Following this he explained the purpose of the calling of the meeting, and requested the selection
of a committee.
The meeting then got down to
business and elected the following:   H.   P. Gibson,  chairman;
W. Broad, W. J. Crawford, W.
Forest, J. Watkins, J. A.  Lade,
R. L. Clothier, Fred Young, and
P. S, Jack.   It was considered
that this was sufficient   for  the
t me being.   But a motion  was
passed empowering this committee to add to its numbers if it
tho ight advisable.
After this  the   meeting  ad-
lurned, and a committee meet-
Jn? was at once  called,   during
jwhich W. Broad was elected secretary,.   R. w. Macfarlane acted

Fraser Group Looks Good
William Fraser reports that the
new lead which he located on his
group of claims on the Marmot
some two or three weeks ago,
while laying out a new trail for
the government, is looking very-
good. To date he has not had an
opportunity to do any work on it,
but has   prospected it,  and finds
that it is eight feet wide, carry-

which is approximately lfiOO feet
below the previous workings,
and runs from this point straight

There is a nice high grade shoot
in this lead, but the extent of it
Mr. Fraser has not yet had an
opportunity of determining. In
addition to this lead he has located eight other leads, all
traceable up to the big shewing.
These leads are all on the main
Marmot river north fork trail,
and are therefore very accessible.

Sacked for Shipment
Harry Tanner, superintendent
for the Fish Creek Mining company, came down from the mine
on Tuesday evening and has confirmed the report that had been
current around town for some
days that an exceptionally rich
strike of ore had been made during the week in one of the tunnels on the Olympia claim, at the
lower camp.
Mr. Tanner states that a raise
was started 160 feet from the
portal of No. 1 tunnel, to connect
with No. 2 tunnel, 180 feet above,
and a shoot of high grade was
opened up which he believes is
the same shoot upon which a
shift has been working all summer in the upper tunnel. The
shoot below is widening and becoming richer as the raise is con-

GIBSON'S   GOOD   MOVE
THAT public spirited citizen, H. P.
Gibson, is taking up the idea of constructing a toboggan slide, for the use of the
children and general public this winter, on
the hillside at the west end of Fifth street.
We are exceedingly pleased to note
that such is the case, for some form of
recreation will be greatly appreciated
during the coming winter. And there is
no reason why the people of Stewa-nt should
not avail themselves of the natural advantages that lie at their door, and construct a slide that will be second to none
in British Columbia, and thereby obtain
for themselves and the children a very
healthful form of recreation for the winter.
If Mr, Gibson will take a hold and per! .
severe with his i^.ea, there is no doubt as' ���      , ,
i office   department   can   not   make arrangement^
NOW that the G. T. P. have reduced
their steamship service into this port, from
one boat a week to one every two weeks,
thereby giving us two mails a month instead of four, some sort of prompt action
most certainly should be taken.
Captain Swai\son will doubtless now
renew his launch service between here and
Prince Rupert, in the same manner as he
did last winter, on alternate weeks with the G.T.P.
boats. While this will give communication between this port and Rupert once a week, still we
have only two maiis a month, for the reason that
no provision is made whereby Captain Swanson
will be enabled to carry the mails. Last winter
great difficulty was experienced in getting mails
through by him, in spite of the fact that he was
willing to carry it free, providing it was delivered
and collected from him at either end. The difficulty arose over the fact that the postmaster at
Rupert could not go to anj expense at that end
for the transportation of such mails to and from
the dock. Therefore, it was only bv the courtesy
of this person and that, that we we got any mail
at all by Captain Swanson last winter, who even
then carried it free.
The same absurd situation faces us this winter,
and there is absolutely no need for it���except
Ottawa red tape. If the G. T. P. do not wish to
run four boats a month in here from Rupert, there
is no reason in the world why any attempt should
be made to force them to do so. But then on the
other hand, other people have some rights too, and
it is not just that a community should be dependent upon the whim of a transportation company
for its mail service, particularly when there are
other people who are willing to cwy it, as is the
case with Captain Swanson. It is inconceivable
is any ieai sane reason Wwy tbe post-

Those who have not followed
the trend of mining operations in
recent years may be startled to
learn, upon competent authority,
that in a large number of plants
it is no longer found profitable to
mine gold, says an American
exchange.
The government hat fixed the
price of gold at $20.67 per ounce.
But the actual value of gold is
dependent, of course, on what it
will buy: and for the five  years
of the Geological Survey for the
first six months of 1921 indicates
that less than half this turn will
be the value of the output for the
current year.
While the mines stand idle
there are floods in the workings
and galleries and serious deterioration of the plant above as well
as below the surface. Many of
them may never be reopened.
Any assistance that congress
or any other group or body can
give toward the restoration of

Some interest was created in
mining circles in Golden last
week when Mike Penrose, an
old time prospector, came in with
samples from Canyon creek, a
few miles south of Golden, and
reported that he had struck a
vein of free mining gold 25 feet
n width which he had been able
to trace 6000 feet, with perpendicular width of about 25 feet.
Up to this time he had not had
an assay made of the mineral
which was visible through a
strong glass.
Canyon creek has been the
scene of much placer mining and
a great deal of money has been
spent in an effort to get pay dirt
in quantities. Much more money
probably has been put into the
flumes and other works than up
to date has been taken out. Possibly the best washings ever made
in it were those when the McRae
brothers took about $700 out in
pans from one small pocket. It
was this creek which earned for
one enterprising gentlemen the
sobriquet of "PotHole Kelly."
WORK  SUSPENDED

IT   IS   NOW
Announcement is made by
Rambler-Cariboo Mines that operations at the property of the
company, Slocan district, will be
entirely suspended on or about
the end of the present month.
Only a few men have been maintained on development since last
year, and no attempt has been
made to operate the mill or produce clean ore. Decision is due
to a desire to conserve cash resources, pending an improvement in marketing conditions, in
order that some funds may be on
hand with which to maintain operations when production is
warranted.

Essay on Geese
The following composition on
geese by a schoolboy in United
States: "Geese is a heavy set
bird with a tail on one side and
a head on the other. His feet is
set so far back on his running
gear that they nearly miss his
body. Some geese is ganders
and has a curl in his tail. Ganders don't lay or set. They just
eat, loaf and go swimming. If I
had to be a geese I would rather
be a gander. Geese do not give j
milk, but give eggs, but for me
give me liberty or give me death."
Here's a Warm One
A small boy visited a provincial
school for the first time, and
upon his return home the parents
asked how he liked it, and he
replied: "O, we had a good
time; all the kids recited something." "Dearie, what did you
recite?" inquired the mother;
"Oh, I just stood up, bowed and
breathed:
"Jane ate cake, Jane ate jelly,
Jane went to bed with a pain  in
her���
Now, don't get excited, don't be
misled,
What Jane had was a pain her
head."
"Dearie, what d'd the teacher
say,"asked the mother. "Nuftin,
just looked out the window, and
blushed when she saw the
naked trees."
