A FUTURE   BUSY PORT
THERE was a time when they moved
houses from Stewart to Hyder, Alaska,
and then back again to Hyder, B. C. and
some ambitious people went, so far as to
wish to move houses back to Stewart.
Now, another movement has commenced;
William Fraser, an oldtimer in Stewart,
is moving his house to Marmot Bay, and
will thereby become one of the first resi*
dents of what is fast becoming another
town at the head of Portland Canal, made
possible by mining activities in the Marmot River section. Marmot Bay, near
the mouth of the river, is quite a busy
place, being the base of road construction
as well as considerable mining, and now
the Government are to put in a landing
stage, sufficiently large to accommodate
steamers.
The head of Portland Canal is truly
becoming a busy plaee, and the activity
now most noticible is only in its infancy.
It does not take much vision to see, ten
years from now, the head of Portland
Canal the busiest port in northern B. C.
THERE are two beer parlors in Stewart. We understand that the proprietor,
or proprietors, as the case may be, of one
of these has taken very violent exception
to the editorial published in these columns
last week, in which certain iniquities were
pointed out.
No names were mentioned in the editorial���but does the coat fit? It would appear that it does, for we understand that
one proprietor is taking exception.
We understand also that, according
to his viewpoint, reported to have been
made public, this newspaper, its management, its editor and employees, are everything except what they should be.
Supposing this is all admitted, does
or has that made it any mere convenient,
or less insulting, for women to walk along
a certain section of Fifth street?
One thing is certain, that the condition complained of has to an extent improved since the editorial was run; nevertheless this paper calls for Attorney General Manson to be more vigilant.
"He who excuses himself, accuses
himself."
HOLIDAY IN THE NORTH
.... WM"
ifl'HI
Stewart has of late been visited by
several prominent business men of Vancouver, who ia each case were greatly
surprised by the tremendous mineral possibilities of this district, and on leaving
the camp on their return home were full
of optimism for its future. Each of these
men, on returning south, will perform
great missionery work for the Portland
Canal, and there is not the least doubt but
that greatly increased   interest  will  be
stirred up and Vancouver as a
whole will become more and
more alive to what the mineral
resources ef the Portland Canal,
and northern British Columbia,
really mean to every industry in
this province. Vancouveiites
who have visited Stewart are
comparatively few in number,
and it is to be hoped that many
more will come to understand
that instead of spending their
holidays in the south, they can
get just as good a holiday in the
north, and at the same time
learn something that is of use to
them in their daily life.

steamer Santa Ana, declared  on
his arrival in Seattle.
Capt. Langley said: "The
strike was made 200 miles from
Bethel and about four miles from
the Kuskokwim riveron the trail
It is easy to take out the ore and
transport it to the river boats.
Five leads were uncovered and
traced for a distance of six miles.

(Quotations by H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
Striking commercial ore in the
long crosscut tunnel on Porter
Idaho at a depth of some 250 ft.
caused a heavy demand in this
stock with very few offerings.
News from L&L Glacier that
ore for shipment was actually
coming down the hill preparatory to being taken to the wharf,
caused this stock to remain steady at the new high level, with
practically none offerihg on the
southern markets.
It is also rumored that the
Bayview intends shipping when
trail conditions warrant.
Very favorable development
work is progressing on the following properties: Independence,
Lakeview, Marmot Metals, Emperor Mines, Silver Crest, National Silver, Rufus, Terminus
and many other properties which
are graduating from the prospect stage.
Authentic reports from operating companies on Georgia river
that a lot of development on a
large scale is scheduled for next
year, is bringing Georgia river
into the public eye, and we suggest that this section be watched
so that local people can get some
of the cream, like the Porter
units on the Marmot. Georgia
River district has shown some
of the highest grade gold ore
yet found in or around the Portland Canal.
As authentic reports on mining properties can be made, it is
suggested that local   managers
FINE VISIT AT
PREMIER MINE
About sixty Stewart residents
including the basket hall team
and representatives of the tennis
club, went to the Premier mine
Wednesday evening, and since
their return are all praisinR the
hospitality extended to them by
Manager Dale L. Pitt and every
employe with whom they came
in contact.
T>vo sets of tennis were played, resulting Stewart 6, Premier
2, and Premier 7. Stewart 5.
Darkness prevented the deciding set from being played. The
basket ball, refereed by Mr Pitt,
was hotly contested, and resulted in a win for Premier, 19���12.
This was followed by an outdoor dance on the tennis court
which was greatly enjoyed, as
was also the luncheon, supplied
by the mine management.
The visitors left at midnight
for home, arriving here at about
2:30 a. m.
