EDITORIAL
This Pertland Canal Dis-
' trict has experienced,
and is now-jexperienclng, real
mining activity; but we hope
that in the course of the next
few weeks we will have for
our readers news of some of
the biggest mining development ever undertaken in this
district.
Release of this at the moment, would be premature,
but apparently two or three
situations are working to a
very satisfactory climax and
should reach consummation
within a short time.
Ed Fernald has returned from
a trip outside.
Campbell & Duke have built a
garage back of their store.

such enterprise should permit
development of the greatest possible area between Alberta and
thecoast. While some of the
proposed "cut-offs" such as that
by Obed, or Brule, would provide
reduced mileage construction, he
did not think these proposals
were feasible, as they did net
afford development of a maximum area. Such cut-offs as suggested would at best be only a
temporary relief, and this to the
Peace River alone.
In Mr Beatty's opinion, connection by the Pine or Peace
parses is more desirable, for
for while the initial mileage and
cost would be greater, such route
would ultimately developa larger

under the leadership of Robert
Forke is mainly responsible for
the construction of the Prince

is given in thc statement to the

The old pa ''as have played
political football with the problem of Senate Reform for years,
and notwithstanding all that
Premier King had te say on this
question, during the last two
years, his only solution is to appoint more Liberals. We, however, stand fer the principle of
an elective Senate.
Only Real Exponent
Liberalism as exemplified by
Sir Wilfred Laurier and his predecessors has been discarded by
the King Government, leaving
the Progressive Party as the only
, real exponents of Liberal principles, who refuse to sacrifice
the best interests of western
Canada and the Maratime Provinces to the "monied kings" of
Montreal and Toronto.
Our stand on immigration is
that the successful and contented settler is the natural and best
! immigration agent, and that it is
not in the interests of the country to spend the public money on
propaganda and subsidies to immigration and shipping agencies
while our people are emmigrat-
ing, in such large numbers, to

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
The demand during the week
centered on Marmot river stocks
and even though there was no
appreciable advance, large amounts of the cheap offerings
in both Porter Idaho and Marmot Metals were quickly picked
up. There are rumors in tewn
of a spectacular gold strike on
the Marmot river near the Marmot Metals property.
By past records it appears that
this is always the quiet time of
the year and it has been a surprise that loaal stocks have stood
up as well as they have. By the
amount of ore being shown up,
some of the properties ef this
district offer the best speculative
investments now open to the
public in the mining world.
When active operations start
on the Dunwell a much higher
level is looked for in this stock,
and as continued developments
on the Dunwell naturally prove
up veins that have been traced
into surrounding properties, a
much stronger market is expected in most of the Glacier creek
group.
Local stocks closed as follows:
