PORTLAND CANAL ^*"***��*+

MAY WORK AGAIN ��**- Tru���k t���
Put on Big Boats.
It is reported  that the  old Portland
Canal Tunnel Co. has been given a new i
lease  of   life   and   will   be   operating
again within the next few weeks.
Puring the boom days of the district,
from 1010 to 1913, and previously, the
Portland Canal was looked upon ai a
most excellent property. When the
tunnei cotnoany was organized work
other good showings ceased, the intention being to work them through the
long Lore.
The idea of a long tunnel, to cut the
or ��� bodies higher up, war, followe 1 and
the tunnel was drive i a gre it distance.
During the work several veins of good
��� ire w.re cut through. It is now the
intention to drift on these veins.
Not since the early days of the camp
has there been a more pleasing bit of
intelligence. All the oldtimers have
much faith in the Portland Canal and
adjacent properties on Glacier Creek.

This district is experiencing one of
the nicest winters in the memory of
the oldtimers. The weather is very
mild and there has been considerable
rain during the past few days. There
was but one period of real cold weather
Only about three feet of snow is left
on the beach, and the population is
increasing so fast tho trails are well
packed. A sleigh jitney is being maintained between the two towns, Stewart and Hyder. The last boat, the
G.T.P. steamer Prince John, brought
ii*- passengers, practically all newcomer.-, who are spying out locations for
business. There has been a steady
influx all winter.
It is  reported   that as soon  as the
Dominion  Government   has   the   new
Stewart wharf in shape the big boats
of the G.T.P. fleet   will  be put on the
Portland Canal   run.    As  a  matter of
fact there was almost sufficient business
; to warrant putting on  larger craft last
summer.    But it   will  be  necessary to
have a dock  tirst.    The present  structure  i- in a  dangerous cdndttion, and
there is not eno  2*h water around  it to
immodate  boats    larger than     the
