Louis Johnson of Seattle is looking into the local situation with
a view to establishing for the
towns of Stewart and Hyder a
hydro-electro plant, supplying a
light and telephone service for
these two towns. Mr. Johnson
has had considerable experience
in this line, having built the
hydro-electric plant in Valdez,
Alaska, and was superintendent
of this plant after completion.
On Wednesday he interviewed a
number of local people with
marked success. Arrangements
have been made with Lawrence
& Workman in connection with
the power they own. Mr. Johnson informed The News that he
has plenty of capital  behind him

hope that our patrons, both advertisers and subscribers, will give us their assistance in this regard. This request is not on any sentimental
grounds, but is a business proposition, particularly
to those interested in the district.
We might say here, that it is our intention, in
the very near future, to install a job printing plant
in conjunction with the newspaper. Conditions,
however, must be favorable before this can become an accomplished fact.
We wish to thank our patrons for their support during the past vear, and hope that they
will continue this support during the year which
we are about to commence.

With this issue, The Portland Canal j will visit Stewart about the 12th of next  month.
This affords a good opportunity to let the people
of the south know something of this district, and,
therefore, is a subject of interest to every resident, lt would appear that it is now high time
that some sort of a program for their reception
were drawn up. Aside from this we would suggest that a town clean up day be inaugurated, and
that every male resident turn out for this purpose.
The work to be done would need to be systematized in order to prevent overlapping and insure
a maximum of result. This is only a suggestion,
and made with a view to getting action along some
definite line.
News is two years old. The first issue
being published under date of May 30,1919,
by James Cullins, the founder, a well-
known newspaper man not only throughout the Province, but also in this district,
by reason of the fact that he was associated with Captain Percy Godenrath, when
that gentleman started the Portland Canal
Miner in February, 1910, and had to dig
away six feet of snow in order to put up a
tent in which to house their plant. With
the financial depression of 1912 and the
outbreak of the war ln 1914, this camp
experienced so severe a slump that all industry ceased and business generally declined, until in 1915, when very few people
were left. With this decline Captain Godenrath discontinued his publication, and
no paper was published in this section of
the country, until the return of James
Cullins in 1919, when he started this paper
under the name of The Cassiar News, and
continued to publish under that name until August, the eighth, of that year when,
for good and sufficient reason, he changed
the name to Portland Canal News. Taking
this name for the reason that it was his
intention with this publication to represent
the whole Portland Canal district, and not
just one section of it.
Mr. Cullins continued with this journal
until November 1,1920, when he sold out
to Martin M. Smith, who co-incidentally
sold a half interest to the present owner.
Publication was continued under this joint
management until the middle of February,
1921, when Mr. Smith sold his interest to
his partner, the present publisher, who, in
in March last, acquired the able assistance
of Peck MacSwain, one of the best known
printers in the Province.
Since November last we have doubled
our circulation; and while this is very
gratifying, yet we are not satisfied; therefore, it is our intention to again double it
before the close of the summer.
To our patrons we would say that it is
our constant endeavor to give the very best
service possible under the conditions. The
welfare of the district as a whole is our
first consideration, and every^ effort to this
end is our motto.    A community is often
judged by people, who have never seen it,
by the type of newspaper that is published
therein.    Realizing this fact we are endeavoring to publish a journal that will be
a credit to you.    In addition to this we
never lose an opportunity to' keep before
the eyes of the outside world the mining
development of this section of the country,
and above all, the advantages of this port
as a railway terminal; which advantages
are pointed out in a standing article, that
for aeveral months past has appeared in
conjunction with a photograph, entitled,
"Stewart," and for which we receive no
financial support whatsoever.   Support in
this connection has never been requested,
for the reason that we are of the opinion
that it is our duty to booat the district.
In view of these facts we feel that we

The commencement of much needed repairs to
the roads and bridges in this district has at last
been made, and while there is considerable disappointment over the small amount of work to be
done, yet there is some satisfaction to be gained
out of the fact that the Bear River road will be
made useable and that the Stewart-Hyder road
is to be graveled and put in good condition.
In last week's issue we stated that the bush
on Columbia street is to be cleared out, from Fifth
to back of the school.    This was the name of the
street given to The News, but is incorrect, in that
the   street   on which this work is to be done is;
Brightwell.    This certainly is a step in the right!
direction.   But only a step, for last year this town
paid a large sum of  money   into   the   provincial
treasury.    Just exactly how much is hard to say; J

doubtless keep it up as  long as they continue to
collect the taxes.

The customer hardly realizes just how slowly the
jobber reduces the prices on a falling market to the retailer. To save great losses the retailer should reduce his
prices only as fast a-* he can replace his merchandise with
���oods bought at the new prices. But to meet competition
0n prices as indicated by the city markets where stocks are
replenished daily, the country merchant has to close his

The renewal of the development of
the mica deposits at Tete Jaune Cache
by a Calgary company is of interest.
These deposits have long been known,
and shipments were made from them
in 1898 and 1899, the dressed mica being
taken out by pack train   to  Kamloops.
It is a museovite of high quality save
for a greenish cast. Canada produces
about 900 tons of mica annually, most
of which is exported to the United
States,   which   is   the world's largest
I year.
Reserves of high grade ore were re-
i duced 200,000 tons, being reported December 31 us 10,986,420 tons. Copper
production in 1920 amounted to about. go_
27.000,000 pounds of blister, of which
25,000,000 had been refined. Unsold
r<i;>per at the end of the year came to
��� approximately 20,000,000 pounds, of
which 3,000,000 represented metal in
process.    Sales of copper for  the   year  consume_ of mica
totaled 19,464,000 pounds.

Similar legislation in the interests of
the mining industry would be out of

For International Trade
/CANADA'S imports in thc fiscal year of
^-*-* 1919-20 amounted to #1,064,516,169 and its
exports to #1,286,658,709, a total trade of
#2,351,174,878. In financing the many transactions that go to make up such a volume of business, banking experience and resources are of
paramount importance.
The Bank of Montreal has been assisting the
merchants of Canada in import and export trade
for over 100 years. It has built up an international banking organization that offers exceptional facilities to those doing business with
outside countries.
The Manager of any Branch of this Bank will be
glad to have you discuss banking facilities with
him or you may consult on any problem connected
with international trade direct with the Foreign
Department at the Head Office in Montreal,
where complete statistical and other information
is kept on file.

Look at the map of British Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is 800 miles from the same
point in the Peace River country that
is reached in 400 miles from Stewart,
which is the natural outlet for the
whole northern and eastern interior.
Nearl.v every settler in the Peace
River district is talking of railway
communication with the coast.
Speaking in broad terms there are
thirty-two millions of acres of the
Peace River district situated within the
boundaries of British Columbia, and
mure than forty millions of acres within the Province of Alberta, most of it
being suitable agricultural land fur
mixed farming or ranching, ln addition there is a vast area of mineral anil

J nine million bushels were produced from
j about a quarter million acres, the aver-

log so crooked in the grain that
it cannot remain in place, rolling

at it and turned cross eyed; a
