Fire Department Committee Working on Scheme
To Provide Town With
Fire Protection
At a recent meeting of the
Stewart Fire Department a committee was appointed to investigate and determine the best
means of securing adequate fire
protection for the town and raise
funds for this purpose. After
reporting their findings back to
the Department and receiving
further instructions, this committee is now engaged in a big
drive to endeavor to secure contributions to two separate funds.
By means of voluntary donations it is hoped that the debt of
$150 incurred by the Department
for repairs and renewals in connection with the pump and engine on F^fth street, will be
wiped eut.
The second fund is to enable a
water supply system to be started immediately. The money
raised will be in the form of a
loan to the Stewart Public Utilities Ltd. and will be doubled by
this company from ontside sources; that is, for every dollar raised by the citizens of Stewart, j
another will be found by the di-j
rectors, the whole to be used fori
the express purpose of building j
a20,000-gal. water tank on a 40- j
foot tower and a corrugated iron
building to house the engine. A |
tender has been received from
D.W.McLeman, who is prepared
to start the work as soon as the
money tor wages is in the bank;
he has further made the public-
spirited offer of loaning half the
cost of his labor as his share of
the fund to be raised.
The recent decision of the Government in favor of the Public
Utilities allowing them exclusive
operating rights in the town of
Stewart has enabled them to
formulate their plans, which in
addition to the abovo embody
the overhaul of their engine and
resuming the lighting system.
An arrangement has been made
with the International Electric
c��* for them to supply the whole
^wn with lights until such time
89 the Public Utilities plant is
ready for operation.

WRONG KIND  OF PUBLICITY
HAPPY DAYS
"IT IS BETTER to travel hopefully
than to arrive," said Stevenson. Life is a
pursuit, not an occupation. It is something to do, not something to learn. When
happiness becomes an accomplished fact,
it ceases to exist. So long as it is a chase,
it lives.
Doctors agree that there is nothing
more ruinous to health than to retire from
active work at too early an age.
The same law holds good in the business of happiness. To believe that at last
the goal is reached, is to miss altogether.
Like the bluebird in Maeterlinck's story,
happiness turns back as soon as it is
caged.
Think of the days of greatest happiness in your life. Were they not the days
when you were working and striving for a
goal? When you and your partner were
facing the world with a modest salary and
a grin?
When you had a little house and furnished it one room at a time? When you
paid off the mortgage on your home, or
got the big raise, or launched out into
business for yourself?
-    Those were the happy days!
Happy not because you had finished
In a recent letter to police chiefs of
municipalities the Attorney General of
British Columbia advises a more strict enforcement of the auto regulations and
urges the police to prosecute every day,
every week and every month and to "advertise" the eases well. Just how the police are to do that adevrtising the Attorney General does not say. If papers are
to be used in advertising (free) the prosecution of those guilty of auto infractions
the Attorney General must show a news
value in the prosecutions. There is a class
of newspaper which delights in broadcasting every little trouble a neighbor or citizen gets into, just as there are many
people who delight in the same thing,
and most of those delightful little troubles are imaginary. But the fact that Bill
Jones was pinched because he did not hold
his hand out as he turned the corner, is
not news. It would be much cheaper for
the government and better for the people
if the Attorney General used the newspapers for educational purposes, and not
as a whip to hold over the people's backs.
Few good newspapers will accept the Attorney General's scheme for law enforcement, especially when the law is new and
unknown.���Omineca Herald.

AMERICAN ALPINISTS MAKE FIRST ASCENTS
OF PEAKS IN THE CANADIAN ROCKIES
Two ot thc highest peaks ln Jasper National Park, Mount Unwin
and Mount Hrazeau, have just been
climbed for the first time. The
honor of making these first ascents
has fallen to Mr. Howard Palmer,
of New London, Conn., and Mr.
Allen Carpe, of New York, men who
have won international reputations
in Alpine work. It was Mr. Palmer
who first ascended Mount Sir Sand-
ford, the giant of the northern Sel-
kirks. He is the vice-president of
the American Alpine Club and a
member of the Alpine Club of London. Mr. Carpe is a member of the
American, Canadian and Swiss
Alpine Clubs. Both are Fellows of
���the Royal Geographical Society.
The climbers left the Canadian
National Railways at Jasper and
proceeded to Maligne Lake, a distance of thirty-five miles, and in
seventeen days explored and mapped a territory of remarkable scenic
l.eauty. Interviewed on their return
to Jasper Park Lodge, they described the trip as one of the most
Interesting made in several years of
mountaineering.
"The object of the expedition,1
said Mr. Carpe, "was to explore
the mountains between Maligne
Lake and Rrazeau Lake, particularly to locate and climb Mount
Braeeau nnd to map the extensive
Brazeau ice field. Mount Brazeau
and Brazeau Ice field were discovered an-I named by Prof. A. P.
Coleman, of Toronto, who visited
them tn 1894 from the Braze.au
Lake side and made an unsuccessful attempt to climb Mount Brazeau, which he estimated to be 11,000
feet high. The mountain had not
been approached since then and the
country had not been mapped, so
that the location of Mount Brazeau
nnd Brazeau ice field were uncertain. We made the flrst ascent of
Mount Brazeau and three other
nameless peaks in tho vicinity, also
of the prominent mountain on the
south shore of Maligne Lake,
known as Mount Unwin. From our
observations, we were able to identify the Mount Brazeau Range, with
the mountains visible directly at the
head of Maligne Lake, about seven
miles east of the position shown on
the current maps. We obtained
other topographical data which has
not yet been worked out
"For the ascent of Mount Brazeau
we rowed across  Maligne  Lake  to
near its head and carried packs up
the stream, entering from the south.
From a camp at the head of this
valley, we first climbed a peak on
the south, about 9,300 feet high, for
purposes of observation.    Then, we
left camp at six a.m., ascended the
glacier at the head of the valley and
climbed up an icy gully to the summit of the fine dome-shaped  snow
peak visible from the lake.      This
peak  is about 10,600 feet high and
is situated on the edge of the large
Brazeau ice field, of which it commands a good view.    This summit
was reached at one p.m.    Proceeding along the crest of the range towards   the    north    we    reached   a
second  summit of nearly the same
height   at  about   3.30  p.m.,   and  at
last  attained  the  main  summit  of
Mount   Brazeau  at   6.10   p.m.,  over
very steep  snow slopes.    The altitude of Mount Brazeau appears to
be at least 11,000 feet.   Leaving the
summit at 6.30 p.m., we retraced the
Bame   route   and  reached   camp   at
1.60 a.m., the descent of the glacier
being made ln total darkness.
"Mount Unwin was climbed from
the southwest from a camp in the
Maligne Valley about  twelve miles
above the  foot   of    Maligne   Lake.
This  is  a double-topped  mountain,
both summits   being   well over ten
thousand feet.    The south and west
faces are made  up of an  Intricate
series  of cliffs  and   ridges  tlirough
which we climbed to the final snow-
covered summit.    In several places,
impassable cliffs were circumvented
by traverses on ley ledges and  in
steep   couloirs,   requiring  step  cutting.    We  left  camp  at  5.45  a.m.;
the   summit   was   reached   at   4.15
p.m.,   and  camp   regained   at   10.50
p.m.
"The view from Mount Unwin
was among the most expansive
which we have ever seen, extending
from Mount Forbes ln the south
through the Columbia group, with
Mount Alberta and the great Columbia ice field, the Wood River
and Hooker groups, Mounts Fryatt
and Cavell. the Fraser and Geikie
groups to Mount Robson and Resolution in the north and the Brazeau
Range in the east. In the distance,
Mount Sir Sandford and the Adamant Range, in the northern Pel-
kirks, were clearly visible, and
nameless peaks on the Gold and
Cariboo Ranges."

Syndicate have been assessed!
pro rata an amount equal to 793
units. This wTll leave outstanding exactly $100,000 worth of
units and will require $1,000,000
worth of stock for its redemption, leaving in the treasury of
the new company $1,000,000
worth of stock.
This the Trustees believe is
equitable and for the best inter
ests of all the unit owners,
those who invest in the capital
stock of the corporation after it
is organized.
We herewith submit a financial statement as of November
the 1st, 1924, which shows an estimated balance in the treasury
of the Syndicate amounting to
$15,875.35. out of which the expenses incident to the organization of the corporation will be
paid, and the balance turned into the treasury of the new company.

Local Stocks
This weekVstock list is mark-!
ed by two distinct though oppo-.-
site features. One is a decided
upward movement in B.C. Silver
which has sent that stock soar-
ing; the other fs the worst slump
in Glacier Creek this stock has
ever experienced. The cause
for this slump cannot be figured
out. This stock will probably
rie again when Dunwell strikes
ore in No. 4 tunnel.
Equally   vague is the   cause
for the rise in B. O. Silver.    Rumors are rife of a new ore   body
being found, presumably by the
and j diamond drills, but nothing  offi-
