ACTION   NEEDED
The people of this Province last fall
by a large majority voted in favor of Gov-
ernment control of the liquor traffic, with
the result that at the last session of the
Legislature a bill was put through creating a Liquor Control Board, and defining for this board a certain line of action.
Following close on this three well known
gentlemen were chosen as commissioners.
This commission were given a very short
time in which to  create an organization
mining development that at the moment is
in its infancy. Two towns, Stewart on the
Canadian side, and Hyder on the American, two miles apart, and both admirably
situated as business centers ��f a district
whose payroll is in the neighborhood of
$75,000 per month.
What do we find? Is Stewart getting
her share of this business? Without fear
of contradiction, we say most decidedly,
NO. Eyen though the majority of this
payrolls on the Canadian side, STEWART
BY THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE
LIQUOR CONTROL BILL, WITH NO
ADEQUATE RECOMPENSE IN THE
WAY OF A LIQUOR VENDORS'
STORE, HAS, FROM A BUSINESS
STANDPOINT, TO DATE AT LEAST
BEEN KILLED. And at the {expense
of a Canadian town, Canadian natural resources are rapidly building up a prosperous and thriving community in the American town of Hyder, in the Territory of
Alaska. Nothing except quick and decis-
sive action will save the town of Stewart
and the business that the mines of this district
will create, for the Canadian people, whether
these people be commercial or industrial.
Therefore,   it  is  high time that the business
people, and tho��e owning property here, get  to-

have had to contend with every conceivable | means in their power to righting this condition at
form of political and business intrigue to
a degree that has made the working out
of their task, to the present moment, well
nigh impossible.
It is safe to say that no Government
of British Columbia was ever called upon
to face a more difficult question. Therefore, they should receive the fullest support in their efforts from every fair-
minded citizen in the Province. For the
only way the people of British Columbia
will ever get satisfactory Government control of this traffic is by individually and
collectively standing four square behind
the Government in their endeavor to enforce the administration of it.
This is not to say that their should be
no criticism of the act. For it was created
and put into effect in a hurry over the
whole province of British Columbia, which
covers a very large territory, and has a
very scattered population. Under these
circumstances it is humanly impossible to
make the act operative in a satisfactory
manner to all concerned.
Therefore, it is safe to say that the
Government, realizing this fact, will welcome criticism, providing, of course, that
such criticisms are constructive and offered in an honest and sincere manner.
There are, as could only be expected,
a lot of weak points in the act, which will
in time be adjusted, and it is in the adjustment of these points that the people
can assist, not by acting individually, but
by forgetting their own political affiliations and working together for the good
of the whole.
Stewart, for instance, could well
adopt some such poliey, for it is difficult
to say if there ia a town throughout the
whole length and breadth of the Province
that has bean harder hit by this act. There
may be two or three cases down along the
southern border, but nowhere else. For
here in the Portland Canal we have two
towns catering to the business that is
being created by  the rapidly  increasing
as early a date as is possible.

an authority as can be found in the business

A delayed shipment of Gents' Furnishing Goods,

our almost complete line of good things to eat
The total coal aeserve of the United
States, by which ia meant the quantity
remaining underground within American territorial limits, is forty times ap
great as that of Great Britain, formerly
tlie world's biggest coal exporter, and
is. in fact, a little more than one-half
of the total reserve of the world. Expert estimates of the world's stock of
coal, presented at a recent geological
congress held in Canada, put the world's
total reserve at 7,398,000,000,000 tons,
and that of the United States alone at
3,839,000,000,000 tons, or 52 per cent of
the world's total. Canada ranks next
to the United States with 1,234,000,000,-
000 tons, or 17 per cent of the world's
total. China 996,000,000,000 tons, or 14
per cent of the world's entire stock;
while the British reserve was stated at
but 190,000,000,000 tons, or less than 3
per cent of the world's total.
Alice Arm,  June  29.���A rich
strike of native and ruby lilver
lias  been made  on the Second
Thought claims  on  Clearwater
creek   by  George Casey,  while
doing  development  work.   The
strike was made 1000 feet above
the tunnel which was driven two
years ago. and in which native
and ruby silver was found.   The
lead  has  been traced from the
tunnel to the new strike.   M��re
work will be done  on   the  property this summer, and it is expected that a big body  of   high
grade ore will be shown up.  The
property is owned by Jack Graham of Alice  Arm  and George

Cronin, of the Babine Bonanza
propert in the Babines, arrived
in the city last Wednesday night
from his home in Spokane.
Everything is in readiness to
start work again on his property
immediately.
The mine never looked better
than it did at the shutting down
last fall. The big tunnel which
had been run in Ihas tapptd an
immense body of ore though it is
not the main body in the opinion
of Mr. Cronin. When this main
body is encountered it will assure the property being ranked
among the greatest mines in the
north.

AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $670,649,894
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1885,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for

not JO per-cent. of the Province has been even prospected; 900,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws 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 whieh is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

MOSQUITO   EPIDEMiC
KNOVVET   POETS
The latest epidemic of  nineteen
twenty one
Is worse than influenza, it won't
be any fun.
Mosquitoes wild as tigers, starved
blood-thirsty, wild,
The mosquito epidemic won't be
very mild.
What makes them so ferocious, is
all that puzzled me,
All doubt is quite aoon vanished
when styles these days you see
Stockings down below the knee,
and skirts so very short.
The  mosquitoea  of  today   will
have the gayest sport.   ���
Mosquitoes large as robins, flying about the air,
Lighting on the stylish maid, and
biting where they dare.
You can't hit them and hope to
knock them out,
To kill them takes a shot gun,
without a single doubt.
To prevent this epidemic, this is
what we'll do,
Girls  will  have  to  wear more
clothes, instead of such a few;
Now, girls, it's up to you to atop
this awful pest.
So roll 'em up and let 'em down,
and give us all a rest.
USEFUL   HINTS
There are several ways of using baked ham. One of the best
is to eat it.
Honey may be used for sweetening almost anything but a
traffic cop.
Spaghetti should not be cooked
too long.
About ten inches is right.
Photographs will . keep the
home from being dull, especially
if they show hubby with a California bathing beauty.
Cooking sherry will last longer
if you fire the cook.
A cold bath will be found more
pleasant if made with hot water.
Why?
"Attention,   class   in    steno
graphy!   A gentleman is coming
to pick out a bright and  intelligent stenographer.''
And   did  the   girls reach for
their notebooks?
No.   They all reached for their
powder puffs.
Why His Jaw Dropped
"Thereisn't much I don't know
about the English language,"
boasted the long haired man in
the club.
"I'll test you," replied a friend
"I'll dictate a paragrrph to you."
With an assured air the boaster
seized his pencil, but his jaw
dropped as he heard the following: "As Hugh Hughes was
hewing a yule log from a yew
tree, a man dressed in clothes of
a dark blue came up to Hugh and
said, "Have you seen my ewes?"
"If you will wait until I hew this
yew tree, I will go with you anywhere in Europe to look for your
ewes," said Hugh Hughes.
Stewart
Look at the map of British Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Van-
couvni" i�� 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 eastern 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 the
boundaries of British Columbia, and
more than forty millions of acres within the Province of Alberta, most of it
being suitable agricultural land for
mind farming or ranching, ln addition lucid Ifi a Viibt *��reU of j~iiiuc*r**i   ��'"h'j
timber resources, theextentof which is
only beginning to be realised.
Immense deposits of anthracite coal
hav* been located aiid tin- prest-ient of
the Peace River Hoard of 1 rade is
authority for the slaUmei.t U����i this
eoal grades Higher titan Pennsylvania
coal.
Extensive exploration work is being
c��-rud ��� .1 in connection with oil and
���H.ady -lUrtling r-aulU hive   Leen ob
taini'd. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
and enough investigation has taken
plac- 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 hundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
district is ubout twenty thousand. The
first 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 acres, the average wheat yield being thirty-five bushels to the acre or nearly double the
average of other portion-, of Alberta.
The land is also w��ll adapted for the
raising of stock of all kinds, particularly hoga.
it is reasonable to suppose that if
two hundred und fifty thousund acres
are now producing nine million bushels
of gram, that within u very tew years
there will be ten million acres producing three hundred and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
Urns.
PLAY   UP!
There's a breathless hush in  the
Close tonight,
Ten to make and the match to
win���
A bumping pitch and a  blinding
light,
An hour to play and   the   last
man in,
And   it's  not  for the sake of a
ribboned coat,
i the selfish hope  of  a season's fame,
But  his  captain's  hand on his
shoulder smote���
"Play up!   Play up! and play
the game!"
The sand of the desert is sodden
red���
Red with the wreck of a square
that broke.
The gatling's jammed  and   the
colonel's dead,
And the regiment's blind with
dust and smoke.
The River of Death has brimmed
his banks,
And England's far, and honor's
a name,
But the voice of   the  schoolboy
rallies the ranks,
"Play up!   Play up! and play
the game!"
This is the word that,   year  by
year,
While in her place, the School
is set,
Every one of her sons must hear,
And  none   that  hears it dare
forget.
This they all, with a joyful mind,
Bear through life, like a torch
in flame,
And   falling,   fling   to the host
behind���
"Play up!   Play up! and play
the game!"
