Stewart Wins at Football
Dominion day was celebrated
in royal style, starting early in
morning  with   a   din    of   fire
crackers that made one think of
the front line at Ypres.     Later
gt 9 o'clock came the fire drill,
and a number burned out.
The program of sports commenced sharp at 10 o'clock with
the Calithumpian parade, led by-
Mr. and Mrs. George Fraser,
followed   by   two   Hielanders,
James Martin   and   Angus   Mc-          --_^^^_

played  in  the  Portland  Canal
district and resulted, after a hard
contest, in a win   for  Stewart.
Both teams were scratched together at very short notice,  and
put  up  an  exceptionally  good
game,   ln spite of a greasy field
and greasier ball and two men
short on the  Hyder  team,   the
game was one of great interest
from start to  finish,   some  exceptionally good players having
come to the front.
lt is said that the reason that
the Hyder team was able to hold

George Clothier, government
resident mining engineer, arrived from the south on the
Prince Rupert, Sunday, and left
for the Naas, Wednesday, accompanied by Vince Lade, Cyril
Jackson and H. G. Marvin, for
the purpose of reconnoitering a
trail from the Bear river-Mezi-
adin lake trail south to Alice
Arm.
On the arrival of the party on
the other side of the glacier several days will be spent in deciding at just what point the trail,
which is to run north, will leave
the main trail.    It is the  intention to start this work at as early
a date as possible.    No definite
route has been chosen; the idea
being to hold it up as close to the
2000 foot level as possible, thereby ensuring  it  being  kept entirely within the   mineral   belt.
For this year at  any  rate  this
trail will be   simply   a   prospec-
pectors' trail and will be pushed
as far   north   as   the   appropriation of $2500 will permit.    Mr.
Clothier,   in    constructing  this
trail, has introduced a  new system of trail building, in that the
work  is  to be done by contract
and will be stationed out to four
prospectors.     No grading   will
be done; the trail will simply  be
slashed out and well blazed.    In
this way it is estimated that  the
work can be done for from  $75
to $100   per   mile.    Bv   letting
this work out by  contract,   the
men doing the work will be able
to prospect the country  as they
go along.
It is hoped that 25 miles of this
trail will be built this year, thus
opening up at least 150 square
miles of entirely new and well
mineralized country.
After deciding the point of departure of this northern branch,
the party will start south, reconnoitering a route for the south-

THE article appearing in this issue,
in regard to the new trails that are to be
built by the department of mines this
year, brings news that is of the utmost
importance to the entire Portland Canal
district. For by these trails hundreds of
square miles of new territory will be opened
np for prospecting; on the greater part of
which no man has ever yet set foot.
Though it is known that this territory is
just as rich in minerals as that of any
other section of the district.
It can be argued that there is no need
yet for such trails, as there are at the
moment  a  large  number  of properties
munity spirit. Then again it gives, particularly to the younger men, an incentive
to enter into and follow up their respective
lines, thus making better men. For it develops a sporting instinct that teaches
them to play the game, and so fits them
the better for the larger contest, that
of life. ,     /
Few small towns in the province are
as well situated as Stewart, for with the
Alaskan town of Hyder only two miles
away, keen competition in all sports is at
all times assured.
> Congratulations are due the Athletic
association for the success of their first
efforts, and it is to be sincerely hoped that
they, will commence now planning for a
similar day next year in order that it may
be a still greater success.

that it is to be hoped that the association
will each and every year hereafter arrange
a similar day of snorts. Every encouragement possible should be given them in this
respect, and they should be supported to
the utmost by every business man in the
community.
One day of sports each year has
numerous beneficial effects, chief among
which is the fact that it brings the people
of the whole community together, thereby
enabling them to know each other the better, and so in turn makes for a better com-

Gold From Black Sand
An interesting patent has been
taken out in Vancouver for   the
commercial utilization   of   black
sand, of which there are millions
of tons both on the coast and in
the interior.   The invention consists   of   a   powerful   revolving
magnet which makes a clean extraction of  the  magnetic   black
sand from the non-mineral material and delivers it in a form in
which it can  be briquetted  and
smelted.   The value of the samples  treated   in   Vancouver   is
given as about $10 a ton  in  the
black sand, in   which  the  gold,
platinum and other values occur
in occluded form.    The free gold
is recovered from the tailings by
amalgamation.    The plant operate,   on   small power; has large
productive  capacity;  and   promises to give recoverable  values
m a vast amount of what is at
prUOT. a waste mineral.

Look at the map of British Colombia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is 800 milea from the sume
point in tht PMUM Hiver country that
i_ reached in 400 milea from Stewart,
which ia the natural outlet for the
whole northern and eastern interior.
Nearly every settler in the Peace
Kiver district is talking of railway
communication with the count.
Speaking in broad terms there are
ihirty-two millions of acres of the
l'eace Kiver district situated within the
boundaries of British Columbia, and
more than forty million* of acres within the Province of Alberta, most of it
being Mutable agricultural land fur
mixed farming or ranching, hi addition there is a vast area of mineral und
. limber resources, the extent ol which is
' only beginning to be realised.
Immense depoMt* "f anthracite coal
have bun located and the president of
the Peace River Hoard of Trade in
authority for the statement that this
coal grades higher than Pennsylvania
coal.
��� ii.iv. exploration work is being
carried on in oonnection with oil and
already startling remits have been obtained. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
aud enough investigation has taken
place to be assured that they are of
wi.iiderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural gas.
The area under cultivation at present
is only about liOO.OOO acres and the
population    of   the    Whole     district     is
about 20,01)11 The tirst grain was sent
out of the country three years ago, and
consisted of less than one thousand
bushels. Last year nine million bushels
were produced from about a quarter
million aires, the average whetit yield
being thirty-live bushels to the acre, or
nearly double the average of other
portions of Alberta. The land is also
well adapted for the raioiiig of stock of
all kinds, particularly bugs.
lt is reasonable to suppose that if
250,000 ,u r, n aie now producing .,000,-
000 bushels uf grain, that within a very
few yeais there will be 10,000,000 acres
producing ;j_*),UOU,000 bushels of grain,
or roughly 10,000,000 tons.

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $336,562,897
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province haa been even prospected; 300,000
square milea of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining lawa of this Province are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any other Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire. >
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

What richer gift has this round earth
Than these fair fruitful fields of thine?
Like sheets of gold thy harvest run.
Glowing beneath the August sun;

Thy cataracts roar,
Thy forests stretch from shore to shore;
Untamed thy northern prairies lie,
Under an open, boundless sky;
Yet one thing more our hearts implore
That greatness may not pass thee by!

I like girls.
I like 'em demure and I like
'em wild, and I like the jazzy
kind.
I like the boob way they wear
their overshoes around their
ankles like the gunny sacking a
hobo ties his feet up with when
he can*t borrow a pair of shoes
through the back door of a dry
goods store. I like the boob way
they wear their hats, 'way down
over their eyes (and I understand
this season it is just as bad form
to show the eyes as it is to show
the ears; of course it is still good
form to show the form if the
form is good.) I like them when
they're brainy but don't have to
be, because they COULD get by
on their looks. And they're not
so bad when they have just their
looks to get by on.
I might be called a flapper'
hound, but the one I like best isl
tlie one wno, at a dance, asKSj
you to take care ol' her handker |
chief or her rouge box for her, j
and then forgets to ask lor it j

Because then I have a good ex-'
