LOOK AHEAD, VANCOUVER!
Our Vancouver contemporaries are devoting considerable space to the problem
of opening up the Peace River district,
and in the various solutions put forward
no attempt has been made to consider the
question from any other standpoint than
that of the benefit to Vancouver.
The question is "How can the Peace
River district be opened up to the best advantage?" and the only answer is "By the
shortest route to tidewater."
From Stewart lo Grande Prairie is 450
miles. From Vancouver to the same point
is at least 850 miles by the shortest possible route. These are facts which cannot
be ignored, and if the Peace River district
is to be opened up from its logical outlet,
Stewart is the only point that can be considered.
The Peace River district has 60,000,000
mam issue.
Vancouver has become great and is still
marching on to greater achievements; her
supremacy has been accomplished mainly
by the spirit of her inhabitants, but her
viewpoint has at times been parochial instead of provincial, and a broader outlook
would redound to her advantage.
The Province, north and south, is one.
Too often in the past has the development
of the north been retarded by the attitude
of the people of the south, and Prince Rupert would be still unborn if the efforts
made to thwart the building of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway had been successful,
yet the coming into being of Prince Rupert has added to the prosperity of Vancouver, which will be still further enhanced by coastwise traffic when the Peace
River district is connected by railway to
Stewart.
The maritime traffic of Western Canada is centered in Vancouver; a cheap
waterhaul and low freight rates over a
short direct railway line from Stewart to
the Peace River district would add to her
shipping and associated business, thereby
producing a far greater volume of business
than could be obtained by a roundabout
railway.
Look ahead, Vancouver! Visualize the
Peace River country when its now vacant
lands are turned into productive farms,
see the millions in gold dust that will be
garnered from the wilds of Cassiar, behold
the developments consequent upon the
opening up of one of the world's greatest
potential lode mining territories, and realize that in the short water haul you have
a greater asset than in a railway line, and
acres of agricultural lands.    To render
this area commercially profitable by means jin realizing this you will add your influ
of a railway is the question now before jence to secure for the Peace River district
the Railway Commission, and it is to be Jits logical railway outlet at Stewart.
Canadians all over British Columbia will resent the attempt to
bar American capital from coming into this province.   Certain
individuals in this province, because of selfish interests and ulterior motives, are endeavoring
to stifle the mining industry.   A
recent despatch referred to a conference between the mining and
wholesale bureaus of Vancouver!
Board of Trade, the B. C. Chamber ��f Mine?, Hon. H. H.  Stevens and J.  A. Clark,  Dominion
membersof Parliament, at which
it was decided to call a special
meeting of the mining bureau to
consider the advisability of suggesting to the government that
ownership of British  Columbia
minerals  in  the future be   restricted to British citizens. Whiie
every inducement should be offered  to  Canadian   citizens   to
share in the mining prosperity of
this province,  it  would be the
worst kind of folly to prevent
either   American   or   European
capital   from  investing  in this
province.   Tho one crying need
of the Dominion ia capital and
we cannot afford to bar it coming
from any country.    Such are the
sentiments expressed by the editor of the Cranbrook Courier, to
which we give endorsement.  He
adds the opinion that if Canadians would develop a national
spirit similar to our neighbors to
the south,   this   country would
have one hundred million ptople

It is now certain that Stewart
ia to be favored with the installation of a modern and thoroughly equipped steam laundry, and
it is fully expected that it will be
ready for operation by the first
of May.
This is because of the well
known public spiritedness and
business thrift of J. P. Hawkinson, who but recently returned
from a trip to the southern cities
and seon made it known that he
had already placed an order for
a fully modern steam laundry
plant which will very soon be on
its way here. He says he has
not pone into the matter hastily
but has had it under consideration for some months, believes
the investment is warranted and
that with the reasonable co-operation of the citizens of the town
and surrounding district, should
pay a fair profit on the cost of installation and operation.
To assure satisfactory work,
an experienced operator will be
employed at the outset, and careful attention paid to the minor
details of the business, which are
possibly more noticeable in this
than in many other lines of business, in order to. prevent the loss
of small articles or interchange,
which is most annoying to all
concerned.
A suitable site will be chosen
as speedily as possible and a new
| building erected adapted for the
work to be done. As the water
commonly in use here is rather
hard for laundry work, without
the use of softening preparations,
it is the intention to bring the
water from Rainy Creek, and
this item will incur considerable
extra expense and labor. Nothing like this, however, will deter
Mr. Hawkinson from carrying
the venbure to a successful issue
and it is hoped the patronage of
the community will be freely
given.

The Indian mines caused a big
flurry in the stock market during
the week, going up as much  as
eight points.     This  we believe
was caused by continued rumors
that the Indian diamond drills
had hit a large ore body.    The
management has made no public'
announcement.    Indian is  een-i
sidered to be due for big fluctua-.
tien.
The heavy demand for Porter-
Idaho Company issue is continuing and the local allotment will
shortly be taken up.
Again during the past week
demand for local stocks has been
very heavy. L. & L. Glacier remains steady with increasing demands for this stock, which is an
