PREMIER'S YEOMAN SERVICE
WHY NOT FAIR PLAY?
CRITICS oft times fill a more useful
role than they anticipate, and as a result
bring things to light that they never saw
before.
Oft times a newspaper prints a news
item for a double purpose; first for its
news value, and second to create discussion, in order that people will do a little
thinking and open their eves to things
that they never before noticed.
Last week the News reported certain
liquor cases, and as a result is accused of
supporting the law breakers. This is not
the case. The item was published in the
manner that it was in an attempt to draw
attention to the unfairness of the liquor
law enforcement.
While we do not exactly desire to stir
up any controversy, still to those who believe that is an exaggeration, we would
suggest that they take a little time off
from their usual pursuits, and stroll
around not only Stewart, but also the
larger towns of the south, with a view to
informing themselves of a condition that
has become common and rapidly sapping
the moral fibre of the people of this Province.
If they will do this and are at all lovers of fair play, and equal justice for all,
we venture to say that there will be engendered within them the same feelings
of disgust thai others have experienced.
The situation is not in any way a criticism of the local Police Departments, for
the reason that they are in a more or less
powerless position, which would appear
to be ror the reason that there is too much
money to be made in the liquor traffic.
All the people of this province expect
or want is a clean attempt to enforce the
laws with equal justice to all.
It is regrettable to hear doubts of
equity expressed.
SOME say that the Premier has purchased control of the Forty Nine. Some
say that it is not the Premier Company
but Premier interests. What they say,
let them say.
It is immaterial whether it is the Premier company or Premier interests that
have acquired control, so far at least as
the district is concerned. What is important is the fact that it is one or the other;
and that with such strong financial backing and efficient management, coupled
with the immediate movement of supplies
and machinery onto the property, another
real mine is assured the district.
The Forty Nine is unquestionably a
mine in every meaning of the word, and
new that real and efficient development is
being oommenced, a road, and consequently cheaper transportation, are assured the
whole upper Salmon Basin; and insofar as
this is the case, greatly increased development can and will be undertaken in this
richly mineralized portion of the district, opening
great and still greater mining possibilities for the
Portland Canal District.
Thus the Premier people, by makiag possible
this much greater development, are doing the dis-
triet yeoman service, and it is to be hoped they
will be well rewarded.

A town is no more progressive than its citizens. In this, Stewart is singularly fortunate in
possessing Citizen J. P. Hawkinson, familiarly
and and affeetionately known as "Jake," whe has
stayed with the town during bad times and good
for the past five years or more, catering to the
needs of the tired and hungry with a first-class
restaurant, until today he can tell you the fads
and peculiarities of every bachelor in town, a fund
of information that should be most valuable to
any young lady contemplating taking unto herself
ene of the many young and old, fat and lean, tall
and short, Adonises.
Not content with this community service, Mr
Hawkinson recently built and equipped a modern
electric laundry, the first of its kind in Stewart,
and by far the most northerly in B. C.
In this undertaking Mr Hawkinson has given
the community a much needed facility, and one
that is deserving of every possible support; for it
not only makes it easier for even the Editor of
this Weekly Excitement to wear a clean collar,
but what is more important still, it gives employment to some ten people in the town, which in
turn makes industry and business.
To build up a community, progressive citizens
are required, to retain whom, encouragement is
necessary. No greater encouragement can be
given them than sapport of their enterprise.
Therefore the community's thanks and support
are in every respect due Mr Hawkinson and his
modern Electric Laundry.

COMMUNICATION
Editor News:���Some misleading announcements have appeared in the Vancouver Sun and
other papers to the effect that
the firm of Chaffey-Fraser are
interested, other than financially
in the custom assay-office business which G. H. Shepherd is
opening in the new building at
Fifth and Victoria. Stewart B.C.
In connection with this matter
the following should be understood :
Chaffey & Fsraer advanced the
capital for the lease on the new
Tooth building, and also for the
major portion of my assay outfit,
same to be repaid them from a
fixed percentage of profiti made!
by me on assaying and other professional work.
Further than this, neither
Chaffey-Fraser nor any other
parties have any connection with
my assaying activities in the;
Portland Canal section: I guarantee both accuracy and privacy
as to assay results.
A man's safest oipital is his
reputation, and I wish to state I
that during over twenty years'
mining experience in the West,
from the Mexican border te the
North, I have yet to experience
an initial attack upen my ability
or integrity.
Since 1918 I  have   performed
assaying and other engineering
work   for  the   following   well-!
known concerns and paities, and;
in all cases  have   given   fullest
satisfaction:
Cyanide plant metallurgist,
Nugget Gold Mine, Salmo, B. G.
Field engineer and assayer,
John B. White, Silversmith, Sandon B. C.
Mines ehemist and assayer,
Britannia Beach.
Assayer and assistant field engineer, Trites, Wood & Wilson,
Whitewater expedition, Taseko.
Assayer, Kootenay Belle and
Reno Gold Mines, Sheep Creek,
B.C.
Assayer and engineer, Indian
Mines Corp., Stewart, B. C.
I cannot emphasize too strongly that your assay results will be
safe in my hands; your assay results, (if desired) willheentered
only on your assay certificates.

Fifth Strebi, Stewart.
(Quotations by H.W.M.Rolaton &. Co)
The market during the past
week slacked ofi slightly from
the preceeding week, though
showing strong activity in certain of the stocks.
In spite of the remarkable
strike on Dunwell, the stock was
set back a bit under heavy selling, resulting from the flurry
caused by the first news of the
strike, and at present prices
should prove good buying.
B. d. Silver, Porter Idaho, L
& L Glacier and Marmot Metals
all showed outstandingly strong
demand during the week, which
should result in new highs in the
very near future.
Independenee, Lake View,
Victoria Mines, Silver Crest, Rufus, Bay View, are holding a
firm market.
The markets were fully 100
per cent more active during June
than they were in May, this following very true to last years'
performances, and from appearances July and succeeding months
will show a corresponding increase,

DOMINION DAY
CELEBRATION
(Continued from Page 1.)
up a bunch of cein for the hospital, was the Wild Man from Borneo, with his head through a
hole in a canvass shelter and
everyone pelting him with eggs.
W. R. Harner had made a little
bet and lost, so he was the goat.
Te his credit be it said that he
bore the ordeal with a smile and
a cigar in his face. John Mellor
donated the eggs. Wm. Noble
also had his head exposed for
Harry Zeffertt to throw at, but
escaped unscathed.
A dance in the evening completed the celebration.
An innovation that was much
appreciated was the pipers' band
with Jim Martin, Tern McLeed
and Bob Sinclair operating the
pipes, Billy Orr the base drum
and Joe Cullen the snares.
The ice cream stand in charge
of Mrs Tooth was a pleasing and
profitable adjunct.
