endeavor to bring to attention of tne o itside the v.t ua of this section as a s lenic a<- it and to make it known to
lovers of the ; icturesque and beautiful in nature that they have been overlooking. While this is a mining district of extraordinary promise, that di i s not seem any good reason to keep to ourselves the lavish architecture and
painting of nature o,i mountain, sky a i glacier. Touris s travel many miles under worse transportation facilities
to se ��� far less of nature's work. The accompanying picture shows Stewart nestled at the foot of a snow-capped
mountain, which gives but an inkling if nature's m g icy treasure temples in this district.

Feasible For
Wireless Here
That the opinion sometimes expressed
that there were obstacles  in   the   way
of   wireless   communication   with   the
head of Portland Canal are wrong, and
that wireless is feasible, is  being demonstrated by the   gunboat  now   in   the
harbor.    Ever since  the Princess   May
couldn't hear herself talk in 1910, it has
been  said wireless  was objectionable.

present system in.    While it is   a great
boon yet it is expensive to maintain and
wires go down often in winter.

Passengers on the last boat  said that
in Vancouver they were told that people
were so thick in Stewart  they couldn't
find places to sleep.    Well, though min
ing excitements sometime come to that
it is   far from   that   at   present  here.
Sleeping  accommodations  have   never
been at  a premium  here   this season,
and additional  accommodation  is being
added   every week.     As   a matter   of
fact accommodations are keeping ahead
of the demand.

Burned operations. The mine which
as had ,-i small force on development

A Princeton report says a seam of
good coal more than 12feet in thickness
was struck recently on the property of
the Harvard Coal company. This is
the biggest find ever made on the property, and the coal is of such good quality that no time will be lost in making
arrangements to ship the product. Coal
bunkers which will hold 200 tons wi I
be built at once at the Jrailway spur
near the cement idant. This property
is better known as   the United Empire.
Cariboo slum recently crushed in the
timbers of a new shaft begun last October on the Lightning Creek Gold
Gravels & Drainage Co. property at
Wingdam. Very elaborate preparations for the sinking of that shaft had
been made. Pumps of 6Q00 gallons per
minute capacity had been installed, a
light pile-driving machine for driving
30-foot logging was on the job, and a
shaft 12x15 feet was started and sunk
I! feet, when the slum claimed it.
More than a million dollars has ben
spent in trying to reach the gold that is
said to exist in the deep gravels of
Lightning Creek. This last attempt
will probably be the final one for some
time.
