Streets and Sidewalks
The resolution passed by the Citizens' Association
on Monday evening last, supporting the action of the
executive, in their endeavor to this year get the government to clean up the streets and sidewalks of Stewart,
and put the sidewalks in repair, is a step in the right
direction.
Over a period of some few years, prior to the war,
the government spent thousands of dollars constructing
these streets and sidewalks. Since then practically
nothing has been done to maintain them, except in a
number of cases where private individuals have from
time to time done considerable in the way of replacing
new walks in front of their own property, or patching
up the old, thereby showing a very commendable spirit,
for this reilly is not the business of the individual.
Local taxes are levied and collected for such a purpose as this, and for the defraying the cost of government, whether provincial or municipal, it would seem
immaterial, if there is no municipal body as in the case
of Stewart, then these taxes are, as is the case collected
by the Provincial government, and by so doing it would
appear that such government assumes the duties of that
of a municipality, and would therefore be the logical
body to approach, with a view to having the streets and
sidewalks in the town put in repair, and maintained in
good condition, otherwise the question might be asked,
for what are the people paying taxes.
Another Link Tested
The South African link in the British Commonwealth
of Nations has recently been subjected to the very severest test possible, and been found sound in every respect,
by the crushing defeat in the South African elections,
administered to the Nationalist Party led by General
Hertzog, the secessionist, by the South African Party,
led by General Smuts, whose policy is to keep South
Africa within the Empire.
No greater tribute has ever been, or ever could be
paid to British Institutions, than this decision of the
people of South Africa-to remain within the Empire. A
people who only twenty years ago were meeting us as
enemies upon the battlefields of their own land, yet who
today elect to remain an integral part of a system of
States, known as the British Empire, growing and evolving all the time towards new destinies, confronting the
world united, as the greatest bulwark for peace and liberty that the world has ever known.

company for. taxes amounting to approximately $140,000, basing the claim
upon the allegation that the valuation
j of $600,000 carried by the company upon
its books is excessive. As a matter of
fact dividends already distributed have
reached 55 cents per share upon approximately 800,000 shares issued, and
j officials are therefore at a loss to account for the attitude assumed by the
I department. The company has been
[ given time to submit briefs in support

Stewart,
Look at the map of British Columbia
with an unbiased mind. Roughly Vancouver is 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 tin-
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
mixed farming or ranching. In addition there is a vast area of mmer-il and
timber resources, the extent of which is
only beginning to be realized.
Immense deposits of anthracite coal
have been located and the president of
the Peace River Board of Trade is
authority for the statement that this
coal grades higher   than ��� Pennsylvania
coal. ,   ���   i
Extensive  exploration work is being
carried on in connection   with   oil   anil
lready startling results have been   0^
I tain I'd. The oil sands are located at a
depth of about sixteen hundred feet
and enough investigation has taken
place to be assured that they are of
wonderful extent. There is also an
abundance of natural gas.
The area unfler cultivation atpresent
is only about three hundred thousand
acres and the population of the whole
district is about 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 portions of Alberta.
The land is also well adapted for the
raising of stock of all kinds, particularly hogs.
lt is reasonable to suppose that if
two hundred and fifty thousand acres
are now producing nine million bushels
of grain, that within a very few years
there will be ten million acraa producing three hundred and fifty million bushels of grain, or roughly, ten million
tons. PORTLAND   CANAL   NEWS,   STEWART, u.v,.,

$28,843,272, making its Mineral Production to the end of 1919 show
AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $637,363,581.
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
Is strikingly exhibited in tho 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, $57,605,967; for
five years, 1901-1905, $96,509,968; for five years, 1906-1910, $1*5,-

$41,782,474.
PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, *313,t7��,022.
Lode mining has only been In progress for about 20 yeare, and
not 20 per cent, of 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 than those of any other Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empiro.
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.
