There are increasing evidences that
the north country is due to come into
its own The latest comes in the story
of the discovery of large seepages of oil
in the Laird river section of Cassiar
district. In the days of gold Cassiar
was second only to Cariboo,  but when
the gold seekers were finished it was
tdo remote to retain attention, and had
to depend upon the map makers to retain even its geographical position. If
ii has oil this will be different, and it
now appears on the surface that there
is sufficient promise to warrant a very
thorough investigation of the matter.
I The tirst avowed oil prospectors of the
' Laird section were T. E, Haukiti nod
Dick Inkster of Wrangel, and, although
they were up against all the difficulties
of prospecting in the snow, thej
brought back a story which may send
! hundreds after them on a similar Quest.
Hankin and lnhster made their oil dis>-
coveries on a tributary of the Laird, on
a ridge of sandstone, at a point which
ik. [ndians :'.::i;! had been on fire for a
number of years.' A recent slip of clay
smothered the lire, but it is still burning under the gravel, and the smell of
gas is reported as very strong. The
new field presents few difficulties of in
gress, bill getting out is more ilillicult,
:>nd the marketing of an oil product
would be a problem. Tin' way into tha
ow Melt! is \ia Telegraph creek, thenee
in Dease luke, n distance by trail of 12
inks, and from Dease there U ��� down
it ream waterway mto the heart of Laird
taction, with only a few i hort portages,
I'here ia said te be abundance of game
in the country, so   that   its   exploration
huuld be rather hunting.

Stewart
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.
Nearly 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
more than forty millions of acres within the Province of Aiberia, mo_i uf it
being suitable agricultural land for
mixed l'mminr or ranching. In addition there ia a vast area nf mineral and
timber resources, the extent of which is
only beginning to be realized.
Immense deposits of anthracite coal
have been located and the president of
the Peace River Board of Trade is
authority for lhe statement that thin
coal gradee higher than Pennsylvania
coal.
Extensive exploration work is being
carried on in euillieiitlnil with nil a*id
already startling results have been ob
tained. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
and enough investigation has taken
place to be assured that they are of
wonderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural gas.
Thc S.T2S. un-'er cultivation at present
is only about three hundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
district is about twenty thdusand. ' The
first grain was sent out of the country
three years ago, and consisted of less
than one thousHiid hflafWlBi Last year
nine million bushels were produced from
about a quarter milhon acres, the aver-
������ wheat yield beinif thirty-five bushels to the acre or nearly double the
average of other portions of Alberta.
The land is also well adapted for the
raising of stock of all kinds, particularly hogs.
lt is reasonable to suppose that if
two hundred and fifty thousand acres
are now producing nine million bushels
of grain, that within a very few years
there will be ten million acres producing three hundred and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons.

Hon. S. F. Tolmie, minister of agriculture, left for Great Britain an June

efforts to have the embargo lifted from

Railroads have done away with the
platform on the blind baggage: reduced
the number of rods on passenger

tourist to ride.

Popular Wedding
Constable   Frank    Bo.vler    of    the
,R. C. M. P.,   son   of John  Bowler of
, Liverpool, England,   and  Gertrude  A.
Latham, youngest daughter of Kobert
Latham, also of Liverpool,   were mar-
\ ried at St. Mark's church at 2:30 Wednesday afternoon,   Rev.   Idwin   Moss
1 officiating.   The church was very pret-
itily   decorated   with  wild  flowers and
ferns.   The service was attended by a
large   number   of  friends, the church
being filled to capacity.   The bride was
given away by Mrs.   W.   H.   Watson,
with Miss Ida  Watson   as   bridesmaid;
W. H. Watson, in naval uniform,   act
ing as best man.    After the service a
wedding  breakfast  was   held   at   the
R. C. M. P. barracks,  24 guests being
present.   Mrs. Bowler came direct from
Liverpool, leaving that port on   May 20
on the s.s. Minnedosa, and arriving here
on  June   9.     Constable   Bowler,   the
popular member of the R. C. M. P., is
a returned man, having enlisted in the
10th CM  R'sinRegina in  1915.    He
proceeded   to  England on draft to the
Cavalry   Depot at  Shorncliff, in  1916;
from where he later tra' sferred to the
3rd Field Compaui, R. C. E., in France,
and remained   with   them  until  after
Pachendale   in   1917;   after  which   he
transferred   to   the  Military Mounted
Police.   On  receiving his discharge in
1919 he joined the R. C. M. P.    A public
dance was given  by the groom in the
Stewart hotel, a large crowd attending.
ANNOUNCEMENT
Edward E. Coffyn wishes to state
most emphatically that he was in no
way connected with the dance which
was given in Hyder on Saturday night
to the visiting boards ot trade, in fact
he understood that there was to have
been a play staged here on the loth,
entitled "The Private-Secretary," and
in order not to conflict with a Stewart
affair, he postponed hie Friday night
show until Sunday, even against the
wishes of some of the people of Hyder.
He hopes to continue to receive the
patronage of the peopgrof Stewart.
