Th��   P_rtfaild Canal NeWS \*l****d to lie dormant ever since, am for
locnl effort to rejuvenate it.
In the past few years, and up to the
moment, the Stewart Land Co. and local
organizations have done invaluable work
in keeping Stewart, as the logical outlet
for the Peace River, before the people of
western  Canada,  which work has been
augmented recently by very valuable support from the Alaska commercial bodies.
In 1923 the Portland Canal News compiled   considerable Information concerning the possibilities of the route, which in
June and July of that year was used in an
editorial campaign of some five weeks'
duration.   Hundreds of extra copies containing these articles were published, and
with the use of a Peace River directory
these were mailed each week to the Boards
of Trade, agricultural and other community organizations throughout the Alberta
and Peace River sections.   In addition to
these, copies were forwarded to the various newspapers published from Edmonton
north, accompanied by personal letters.
While this campaign necessitated a
great deal of work, and considerable expense for a small paper such as this is,
still this was not for a moment considered,
the results obtained being ample compensation, for it produced a number of letters
from private individuals and organizations in the Peace River country, supporting the Stewart route; and for the first
time, so we were given to understand,
the Edmonton Journal, northern Alberta's
largest daily newspaper, came out flat-
footed in its support of Stewart as the
logical Peace River���Pacific Coast port,
and published our editorials word for
word, thus giving the idea the widest possible publicity; for, being the paper of
northern Alberta, the gospel was carried

THE CONSISTENT publicity given
Stewart over a period of years* as the logical Pacific Coast port for the Peace River
by local organizations, the Stewart Land
Co., the Portland Canal News and more
latterly the Boards of Trade and Chambers of Commerce of Alaska, would appear to have at last commenced to bear
fruit, for of the four possible routes mentioned at the Railway Conference held In
Ottawa on the 9th of January, Stewart
was mentioned as one of the four possibilities.
For many years this route has been
advertised in one way and another. In

charter, commenced construction, com-:

This company is known as the
Kitsault River Mining and Development Co. Ltd., of Alice Arm
B. C. The capitalization of the
oompany is $1,000,000, divided
into 1.000,000 shares of $1 eaeh.
The company haa been formed
by Mr Elmer Ness, who left here
several weeks ago, for the purpose of developing the Fox-Matilda and Blue Ribbon group.
These properties are situated
near the Kitsault river glaeier,
approximately eight miles north
of the Dolly Varden railway terminus, and is connected by a
good pack trail from the end of
the railway.
The rock formation is what is
locally known as the Dolly Varden formation. The ore showings are extremely encouraging,
as there are three large veins or
mineralized zones running thru'
the property, and are known as
the Homestake, Fox and Silver

Mahood at one time owned some
of the mining claims that now

He was working at the mine
when the big rich ore shoot, that
has made this mine famous, was
brought in. He is on* of the big
property owners of the district,
being concerned in the Fish

Mr Mahood declares that the

be called upon to make heavy
cash payments to the owners, as
is generally the case. It is also
proved that the owners have
every faith in the property and
are willing to take an oven
chance with the shareholders.
With such a big burden removed from the shoulders of the
company it has a great advantage, as it means that all the
money will be spent on the
ground snd the shareholders will
get a dollar's worth of work for
���very dollar subscribed.
Mr Elmer Ness, who haa organized the company, and is now
in Victoria, is a practical mining
man. Hs has followed mining
for over twenty years and knows
a promising prospect when he
sees one. He is a firm believer
in spending tho money on the
ground, and under his management success will undoubtedly
be attained, and the rich ore deposits of the Kitsault glacier will
become creators of wealth.
The property is situated in
what is considered one of the
best mineralized^zenes in the
Alice Arm district/ The whole
country shows heavy mineralization and only awaits capital to
develop its latent riches, as is
proven by the sensational striko
of ore recently  made  on  tho
With the suggestion that mining finance be included in the
operation of Washington Blue;
Sky Law all the old arguments
fer and against this type of legislation break out afresh.
We are not entirely sold on
Blue Sky laws as now in effect
On the statute books. They are
easily circumvented by unscrupulous promotors and public officials and when this is done the
shearing of the lambs becomes
that much more simple.
On the other hand they often
hamper the financing of perfectly legitimate enterprises which
are necessarily speculative, no
matter how honest the promoters
This is particularly true of mining ventures, and slowing up of
the development of our mineral
deposits is certain to have an
adverse effect on our entire economic system.
Legitimate miners are, as a
rult, opposed to blue sky legislation. On ths contrary any
high-powered promoter will tell
you that he prefers to work
where there is such a law.���Alaska Weekly.

Local Stocks
The marked feature ef the
week was the exceptionally
heavy demand for Porter Idaho.
this stock reaching a new high
level with practically none offering. All the demand was from
outside points. This activity
was likely caused by the Porter
Idaho being a shipping mine.
Dunwell and Glacier Creek remained steady at the new low
levels, pending the meetings of
these companies.
