C. A. Banks, accompanied by
H. L. Batten, ai rived from the
south on the Prince Rupert, last
Sinday, and left almost immediately for the B. C. Silver property on the Salmon river. It
will be remembered that Mr.
Btnks is the engineer in charge
of this property. One noticeable
feature of the arrival of these
gentlemen was the fact that the
bat arrived at6a.m., and before
.he left tney had teams moving
up the road with supplies, and
later in the afternoon they themselves went up to the property,
thereby not losing  a  minute in
order to gain depth on a very
rich galena surface showing.
The tunnel on this showing is
already in 32 feet and has 4 feet
of solid ore in the face. Assays
taken on this showing run all the
way from $50 to $189 in silver
and lead, with a little gold.
There is a parallel lead a few feet
away from this which also carries
good values. Both leads are
traceable the full length of the
two claims. The work done so
far on this property has shown
the ore to be widening out, and
also to be   increasing  in   value.

During the stay of the Rupert,
Sunday, George Clothier, provincial government resident mining engineer for this district,
visited Stewart. Interviewed by
the News he stated that it is the
intention of the provincial department of mines to this year
construct a prospector's trail
from near the head of Bear
river, following around the range
past the head of Bowser lake to
the head of the Unuk river.
While this trail will only be a
rough one for this year, it will
be so located that it can be made

constructed. The idea of following so close to the range is in
order that the prospectors will

TRAIL   SYSTEM
THE Stewart Athletic Association is
to be congratulated upon its enterprise in
staging such a big program of sports for the First
of July. It is just such an organization as this
that Stewart has been sorely in need ot for sometime past. No town amounts to anything that has
not sufficient life within itself to organize a day of
sports on at least one of the national holidays of
the year.
Stewart is only a small community, and it
takes all of us to make a real success of any town
movement, therefore, let every one get behind the
officers of this newly formed organization, put
their shoulder to the wheel, and make the First of
July the biggest thing of its kind ever witnessed
in this section of the country.
REDISTRIBUTION
IT was unfortunate that the last federal
election was held before the redistribution of representation following the census. But we know
now that if the election had been postponed for
the census it could not have taken place until toward the end of this year. Two close divisions in
the house suggest that a dissolution may be demanded at any time. The lesson is that redistil
bution should not be long postponed, lest another
parliament should be elected on the basis of the
census of 1911. If that should happen every
western province will be under represented and
some of the eastern provinces will have more than
their due. Such event would come near to criminal
negligence.
NOTE  AND  COMMENT
To be a nobody, do nothing!
Boost the town you call your home.
Don't try to side step or ��-vade an honest duty.
IT is very gratifying to the entire
district to learn that at last the government are considering the construction of
a system of trails that will have for their
purpose the opening up, of not only the
Naas valley, but the entire eastern edge
of the mineral belt, of which Stewart is
about the center.
The route for these trails is approximately that advocated in these columns
some months ago. That is, that the*trail
from the end of the Bear river wagon road
to Meziadin lake be brushed out, and put
in condition. From that point a new trail
constructed south, following as closely
as possible the mineral belt to Alice
Arm. The fact that H. F. Kergin, M.L.A.;
George Clothier, government resident
mining engineer for this district, and road
foreman George Young are strong advocates of this route, and that the latter two
gentlemen will soon make a reconnois-
sance trip through over this country, for
the purpose of choosing a route for a trail
to be built at a later date, is most welcome
news to the entire district.
Plans are already laid, as published in
last week's issue, for the construction of
the northern fork of this trail system.
Starting from a point as near the summit
of    the    Bear   river,    this   trail   will
follow as close as possible the eastern edge A Prince Rupert newspaper reporter caught

Mr. Semplo, a Scottish colliery
proprietor, will make a visit to
Northern British Columbia this
summer for the purpose of seeing for himself the possibilities
of the Groundhog region, regarding which he has been in communication with informative
sources in Prince Rupert for
some time, and has expressed his
intention of making a personal
examination. The Groundhog
has been described as one of the
greatest coal bearing zones on
the continent, and, besides being
inexhaustible in quantity, the
quality of the coal is similar to
that of Pennsylvania. Any
move to the end of opening up
this region will be watched with
interest, as its development will
mean a great deal to the future
of the north.

Popular Mechanics devotes two
pages to the recent discovery on
Valdez island of radium bearing]
ores, the article being by Francis
Dickie, and containing two illustrations, one a scene on Vancouver Island within a few yards of
the  place   where   the  deposits
were found, the other of H. E.
Neave, the discoverer of radium
on British Columbia islands whose
biography forms  the   principlal
matter of the article.
"After nine years of persistent
searching in a great many parU
of the world, from South  America to Alaska, H.   E.   Neave.   a
mining enginetr and prospector,
recently discovered two radium
bearing ore deposits in the islands
of Valdez and Vancouver, off the
coast of British Columbia.   The
, story of the long hunt for an area
of radioactive rocks is in  a way
reminiscent     of   those   of   the
i searchers for tje Holy Grail, the
fountain   of   youth, or the philosopher's    stone,     and    other
mythical stone9 for,   like them,
Neave   was   actuated by  an al-
< truistic purpose.    Though not a
man of independent means,  he
continued   his   search   for nine
years,   supporting   himself   and
; his family by  at times working
small   gold   claims,   come  upon
while searching for   radium,  or
acting in the capacity of mining
engineer.    Cut always foremost
with him was the search for the
most  precious   mineral   in   the

world, the twentieth-century
wonder-working radium, which
has in it nearly all the powers
that the ancients sought for in
various ways."
"With the need of more of*the
precious metal foremost in his
mind,   Mr.   Neave,   nine  years
ago, decided to devote his time
to held work in search for radio-
actiye areas, for while there are
plenty  of   men    experimenting
with the medical and scientific
possibilities of radium, there was
io one, as far as he could learn,
making a systematic search for
the areas which  most undoubtedly exist on the earth's surface
where this precious substance is
I hidden.   So he started out.    He,
| covered  a  good   deal of South
! Africa.   He came to North Am-
j erica  and  covered on foot the
j mountain regions of Washington,
Idaho and Montana, a great jor-
I Lion of the heart of British Col-
llumbia,   in   the   Rossland, Fort
i Steele,   Vancouver,  Slocan,  and
i adjoining  districts,   where   the
mineral   might   possibly be discovered.     Following    this    he
prospected the west coast of Vancouver Island,  one of the most
difficult portions of the Pacific
coast.    He  spent   two years on
Cook peninsula,  a desolate ancl
uninhabited region, where landings   have to be ma le through
several   miles  of  surf   from   a
coasting steamer. In this region,
while conducting his prospecting,
he found that for some unknown
reason   the   llora   was unusual,
particularly the   hemlock   tre��s.
Whole forests of these had their
branches growing in an inverted
way, that is, the branches  were
small  at   the   trunk  and grew
larger outward, ending in natural
twigs and foliage.    This was also
true of other trees and shrubbery.
Here the wild pea  vine yielded
| peas as large as   the   cultivated
variety, which were used satis
factonb for food.
"Moving down the coast after
two years of Ineffectual search
he discovered, after nine years
Iof searching, a stretch of- radio
active rocks on Tahsish inlet.
Vancouver    island.       1 hese    he!
teeted (a two ways, by using an
electroscope, and alio by taking
photos, or radiographs, two of
the principal *** fur radium
bearing itrata."

is strikingly exhibited in the following 'figures, which show the value
of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for

-     PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $336,562,897
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, nf the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
-   The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees
lower limn 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.

Crape hangers are close relatives ofthe Kill-joy family. They
always see the atom of bad in
every volume of good, the one
fly in every bottle of perfect
ointment.
Not only do they see it, but
they lose no time in calling every
one's attention to it, lest some
some should pass it by.
If the day is pleasant, the
crape hanger will remark that it
is probably a storm breeder and
call to mind the terrible tornado
of 1842 or thereabouts.
Does some one do an unselfish
or heroic deed? The crape
hanger will instantly remember
some dark spot in the career of
such a one's great grandfather's
aunt's second cousin.
Are you enjoying a delightful
ride? The crape hanger recalls
the terrible accident that befell
the Jones' just when they
thought all was going well, or
wonder if the bra��ce hands are in
proper order.
Are we boasting of our perfect
health? The crape hanger can
always dwell upon the chance of
sudden illness or accident which
may befall.
Of course there's always a reverse side. If there were no ill
there would be no contrast with
good. If trouble were not waiting just around the corner in
some form we would not prize so
much present immunity. If it
were not for an occasional cloudy,
stormy day, the sunshine would
not seem so sweet.
It's merely a question of how
to place the emphasis. Some
hang crape, others place fragrant
yowers.

Two negro quartermaster privates were standing on Trafalgar
square, a few weeks before the
armistice, as a battalion of Scotch
Highlanders passed. They
watched the column approach
without a word of comment, so
great was their amazement at a
Scotch soldier's uniform. After
the battalion passed, one neg-ro
turned to the other and said:
"Nigger, what wuz dat?" "I
lesting they wuzsojers." "What
gits me is dis, dey wan't rden,
'cause dey was wearin' skirts,
an' dey ain't wimmen, 'cause
dey had whiskers." The other
negro's faced brightened, then
he said: "You is a pos fool!

wan't wimmen. Dey wus one
of dem great MiddL-sex regiments _,
