"YE GAVE ME A STONE"
ON PAGE 3 of this issue is a communication from J. Frank Callbreath, a
leading: citizen of Telegraph Creek, which
is well worth reading and considering.
The letter speaks for itself and there is
not much left for this paper to say concerning it except that Stewart is vitally
interested in the subject. What hurts
Telegraph Creek hurts Stewart.
Cutting ont the telegraphic communication between Hazelton and the Cassiar
headquarters injures the possibility of
trail or road construction between Stewart and that point, in that it throws all
the cost of upkeep upon one source. Also
there was a hope that Stewart might be
connected by telegraph with the old station at Naas House, only a short distance
away, and a double outlet of communication provided.  This now seems remote.

SO SAY WE, ALL OF US
Mining interests in British Columbia
will benefit from the opposition of Mayor
Taylor to the amalgamation of the Chamber of Mines with the Publicity Bureau
and the Board of Trade. This amalgamation of three influential organizations was
evidently proposed for the centralizing of
administration, and in the interests of
economy.
The Chamber of Mines requires a man
at its head with a technical knowledge of
mining, and net that of a number of men
expert in publicity or stock selling. One
of the great tasks of the Chamber is to
protect mining from undue publicity. The
Chamber of Mines is demonstrating its
value and under the leadership of Alderman Frank Woodside, is proving a helping
and educational factor in the development
of our great mineral wealth.���Saturday

��� Now, with one stroke of the
i pen, Ottawa decrees our tele-
- grams must do a Merry Widow's
i waltz via the North Pole at
[double the cost. In other words
i it is a policy of repudiation and
tearing down inftead of building
up.
! They say the country is no good
between Telegraph Creek and
Hazelton. They forget the possible opening uo of the Ground
Hog coal as well as the mineral
possibilities along the entire line.
I remember not so many years
ago when Portland Canal was
"no good" and anyone who went
in there was headed straight for
the bug house. Do they say that
new ?
In 1898 a franchise was grant
ed to McKenzie & Mann to build
a railroad from Glenora to Teslin
lake, sarcastically referred to as
from "No Place to Nowhere."
But both are in Canada and both
at the head of navigation. Ii
would have relieved the immediate rush; later it would have
been extended to the coast-perhaps Stewart���and on into Dawson. We would then have had
an all-Canadian railroad; our unexplored North would be opened
up and developed; our B.C. cities
would have had the benefit of
the Dawson trade instead of Seattle and San Francisco.
Is Ottawa going to repeat?
It looks like it.
I understand the reason advanced is that the amount saved
by cutting out this stretch of so-
called "no good" territory will
be given to Dawson. Fine and
dandy for the Yukon, but tough
on B. C.

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H W. M. Rolston & Co)
The local stock market during
the week was practically at a
standstill except in cases where
cheap stock was offered, this always finding a ready market.
The actual starting of work on
the Porter Idaho group stiffened
the market for this stock; the
demand remains strong, and
cheap offerings find very ready
buyers When shipiing starts
on this property a big advance
in price is looked for.
Bayview is in increasing demand, even chough the property
has not started work yet, though
we are led to believe that the
management have a very active
program for the summer, with
good prospects of shipping high-
grade ore.

"The Five Brides"
It is many years since Stewart
has had anything just like the
"Pessimists" are giving us next
week. The dictionary calls a
"farce" a laughable play. If
the comic situations in the "Five
Brides" appear on the stage half
as laughable as they read, we
are going to have some fun next
Thursday and Friday. The Pessimists have been working at rehearsals not just a couple of
we?ks, but for over two months;
they are apparently sparing n��
pains to make the play a success.
Clean-up Week
The citizens of Stewart are requested during the first week in
May to make a clean-up of front
and back yards, Janes and streets
adjoining, and dispose of the
garbage. See that latrines and
cess pools are in good order. The
sanitary officer, at the end of the
week will make an official inspection.
