Commencing Sunday, April 25, the
summer schedule of the G.T.P. will
he inaugurated with the arrival of the
Prince George in Siewart. The leaving time will be Sunday noon. The
big steamer is due to leave Vancouver
next Thursday night and as it will be
advertised as a through trip to Stewart a capacity passenger list is expected. As well as bringing people who
will locate here, many tourists will

The Prince Rupert, the other big
ship of the G.T.P. fleet, arrived here
Thursday evening, being forced to
make the extra call by reason of the
accident to the Prince John. The big
boat made a skillful landing at the de- j
lapidated old wharf. About 75 passen-

many sacks of potatoes. The supply of
spuds here was  just  about exhausted
POPULAR CITIZENS
TAKE OVER CLUBj
Last Wednesday saw the opening ef
the club room of the Stewart Miners'
Social club on Columbia street under
the new management of Ed Graham
and Dick Bell. Ed and Dick came to i
the district a littkj mure than a month
ago and    have    alreBdy   decided   that!
I Stewart and Hyder will do them for
some  time  to  come  and  are  looking
. forward to the development of the district. To show their faith in the
country each of them has invested
heavily in business properties in the
two towns and on looking around for a
home fur themselves and a comfortable
��� place for their friends to enjoy an occasional social evening decided to   take
I over the club.
For the  last week  thf/ have   been
! busy renovating the premises and moving the bar into a  posif :>n  where  it
| provides more rest for '   tired elbow.
The privileges of the cii.b have been
; extended to all the oldAembers and to
a"T] the friends of the ��;en)al "proprietors.
Visitors and members will find the club
one (if the most comfortable Bpots in
! town.
At an election held in the courthouse
Friday morning James Stewart, Wm.
Eraser and Martin Smith were elected
fire wardens for the ensuing year. That
the new wardens intend to pursue an
aggressive policy is indicated by the
survey which  has already commenced.
One of the first enforcements will be
against erection of tents in the business section. An immediate examination of stovepipes and chimneys will be
made as there are evidences of gross
carelessness in places.
The fire wardens have wide powers
for the enforcement of regulations but
especially since the burning of the
Bandbox and the fright the to vn got,
all reasonable persons agree that no
regulations  imposed should be ignored.
The fire brigade has  been  well or-
As it will be more convenient for local subscribers,
they will receive the paper
at Gibson's hereafter.

ROAD NOW CLEAR
OVER DOCK APPROACH
A small force of men with picks and
shovels, organized by H.P. Gibson who
took up a subscription to pay for the
work, reinforced Old Sol and made the
road clear of snow to the wharf. Owing to the warm weather the dee;
snow becoming soft made it difficult to
handle the freight on boat day, but bj
some hard work the road was made
passable.

THINKS WELL OF
UNUK SECTION
Indications are that considerable ex- j
ploration will take place in the Unuk
River sectiou this summer. It is probable George Clothier, examining en-.
gineer for the Provincial Department
of Mines, will spend part of the sum-
mer there and make a report on its
geology.
Tim Williams, one of the 1910 pioneers of Portland Canal district, is starting for the Unuk country to make locations of mineral outcrops ha found
while on trapping expeditions. He
says the indications in the section between the Salmon and Unuk are the
best he has ever seen and, in addition
to that, he says the creeks will all pan
gold.
FIFTH STREET CABARET OPENS.
Last Sat irday night a large crowd
attended the opening of the Fifth St.
Cabaret and were entertained by Jack
Horner with songs and CM. Ridley at
the piano. Owing to the accident to
the steamer Prince John the furnishings have not arrived yet, but Mr.
Ridley decided to open up notwithstanding. So, with a cowbell instead of
the cash register's bang to give warning when the barboy was busy, two-
per-cent and music wiled the hours
���away.
