Both Fred Dorey and Bert Edmunds have been laid up this week
with crippled hands in which infla-
mation followed minor injuries.
The Hyder-Stewart stage kept on
making regular trips however, with
Captain Hucke doing the steering.
Godfrey Anderson and Chas.
Larsen went up to the Bush Monday and from there will go in to
the headwaters of the Naas river
and Bowser Lake on a prospecting and trapping expedition.
They intend to remain in the
wilds for two months.

practically all the work is "handwork" and therefore slow. Only one
property was equipped with a compressor this spring, the Spider, enabling it to do over 1000 feet of
work as compared with from 100
to 200 feel on other showings.
The Salmon river wagon-road
was extended over two ^njles this
year, and next season should see it
well into the upper basin. The Alaska portion of the road is being
completed by the Alaska government.
A great deal of diamond-drilling
was done in this Division this year
and from results obtained it is a debatable question as to whether it is
the most satisfactory method for
initial exploration in this particular
district or not.
A geological survey of the Salmon river area was completed this
summer by the Department of
Mines at Ottawa, with Dr. Schofield
pi charge of the paity. This will be
of great benefit to all prospectors
and operators in the Eastern Contact Belt, and it is hoped that this
report and accompanying maps will
be available at an early date.
The Dominion Government built
a dock early in the season at Stewart, which is connected with both
Stewart and Hydei (on the Alaska
side) by a highway put in by the
Provincial Government. That this
dock is proving altogether inade-1
quate for the volume of freight is
proof of the  advancement of   this
developing the property are an
axe, a ladder and a crosscut saw.

As announced in these columns last week Mr. Martin
M. Smith has severed his connection with this paper,
and it will, on its future course, be guided by the writer,
who's constant effort it will be to give as good a news
service as possible, verifying the authenticity of all news
items before publishing them, for, in the interests of the
community, as the center of a mining district, it is our
opinion that it is better to err on the conservative side,
than it is to exagerate and over-estimate. In this way
we believe that we will the better advance the interests of
Stewart and the mining industry of this Portland Canal
district.
The press as a whole; and individually, owes a duty
to the public. Recognizing this fact, it will be the constant effort of this paper to encourage a high standard
of citizenship, and in order to do so will adopt a policy of
absolute independence.
That which is honest, straightforward and in the
interest of the public as a whole will receive support,
t but that which is sectional, and not in the interest of
the public as a whole, and so not compatible with good
citizenship, will receive denunciation.

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 eas/ern 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 tbe
boundaries of British Columbia, and
more than forty millions of acres with
in the Province of Alberta, rnost of it
being suitable agricultural land for
mixed farming or ranching. In addi- j
tion there is a vast area of mineral and j
timber resources, the extent of which is]
only beginning to be realised.
Immense deposits of anthracite coal
have been located and the president of
the Peace River Hoard of Trade is
authority for the statement that thfs
coal grades higher than PeimayTvanli*.
coal.
Exteniive exploration work is b,eing
carried on in connection with oil-. an��l
��� Iready startling results have been  6>}
I 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.
The area under cultivation at present
is only about three ftundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
district is about twenty thousand. The
first grain waa sent out of the country
three years ago, and consisted of less
than one thousand bushels. Last year
aine million bushels were produced from
about a quarter million acres, the average wheat yield being thirty-tive bustl-
ela 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 lifty thousand acres
are now producing nine million bushels
of grain, that within a very few years
th*ere will be ten million acre* producing three hundred and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons. PORTLAND   CANAL   NLWS,   STEWART, a.^���   Feb. 19, 1921
