QUEEN MOTHER DIES
The Queen Mother, Alexandra, died of heart failure at
Sandringham at 5:25 o'clock
on the afternoon of Nov. 20th,
on the eve of her 81st birthday.
As the Queen of King Edward VII and mother of King
George V the Queen Mother,
though the daughter of the
late King Christian IX of
Denmark, Alexandra had for
60 years endeared herself by
many kindnesses to every
class within the British Isles,
with the result that the entire nation is in mourning.
She holds a place in the hearts
of the British people that possibly has never been held by
the wife of any other Monarch

HAD A CLOSE CALL
Denny Dwyer and J. E.
Munro are lucky men. They
had their midnight lunch in
the blacksmith shop the other
night at the Porter Idaho and
went into the tunnel to get
warm. Coming out a few
minutes later for carbide, they
found a pronounced hiatus
where the shop had stood. A
���nowslide had rambled down
the mountain, taking the shop
and all its contents to the bottom of the cliffs, a thousand
feet or more. There were no
surface signs to indicate that
a slide had ever taken this
route before, or the shop would
not have been built there.

The big dolphin near the outer
end of the Stewart dock was
carried away during the early
part of the week. Used by some
of the larger freighters to put a
shore line on when tying up to
the dock, which is not long enough for them, the loss of this
dolphin will cause considerable
inconvenience until U is replaced. The reason for its going out
is not known. One theory is that

PREJUDICE AND IGNORANCE
EACH YEAR as the month of November comes around, conversations often
drift to the last great war, and many instances are related by men who were fortunate enough to have taken part and return.   Oft-times these conversations also
include men who were not so fortunate as
the first mentioned, and as a result it  is
not uncommon to hear every shade cf opinion expressed.   Some of these are  good
and some are just plain foolishness, and
are not worth a moment's consideration or
comment, if it were not that they  keep
fires smouldering that might in times of
stress be a sonrce of annoyance.
Possibly the most foolish opinion that
one hears, more so in this district than in
any other, is that which is the product of
ignorance and prejudice, to the effect that
as far as the British peoples are concerned, it was a war of profit.
If these cheap, warped apostles of a
false democracy had been fortunate enough
to be able to travel, study and observe
things with a well balanced, open and receptive mind, they would long ago have realized that there was not, and could not
have been any profit in the war for the
British people; that even aside from the
wholesale losses of their loved ones on the
field of battle, far more people were ruined
financially than there were who made
profit by it. Not only that, but experience
has taught that the self-righteous man,
who is so fond of decrying the part that
our nations took in the war, is one of the
first to hitnsalf take advantage of opportunities to enrich his own individual pocket
No one from the highest to the lowest
in the English speaking portions of the
retain even the least semblance  of self
respect.
Informed opinion in foreign countries,
even among our enemies, freely admit that
the British people have for generations
pointed the way for the entire world to
higher standards of civilization and advancement to greater democracy and
greater freedom.
Who is it that since 1918 has consistently taken a lead in attempting to solve
the myriad of delicate and intricate problems that enmeshed a war-torn world, and
so prevented a dozen other wars, and
saved millions of people from the horrors
of such wars; that has eventuated in the
signing of a treaty at Locarno recently
which promises to become in some respects
a Magna Charta of Europe? Has it not
been the British people?
Then why indulge in so many nonsensical opinions that can only be likened to
the pus from the running sores of preju
dice and ignorance.

There are times in all communities when
questions of premier importance have to be decided, if a community is to progress, This time
has now arrived in Stewart, and the question that
will now call for community decision is the question of incorporation.
Whether or not incorporation will be a benefit has still to be decided; but if the past and experiences of other towns teaches anything, it is
that incorporation must have a great deal to recommend it.
The Board of Trade, while in no way recommending or promoting the idea, recently adopted
the wise policy of appointing a committee to in-

carrying the idea beyond that point comes within
the jurisdiction of the Board of Trade; but whether it does or not is immaterial���the Board will
gather and compile the information, after which
the next step to be taken will have to be decided.
One of the strongest arguments against incorporation in the past, has been the lack of an
operating mine on Bear river, that would atssure
increased permanency to the town. This was in
every respect a sound argument, but by developments on Dunwell, it is no longer an argument.
Another objection has been that it would
increase taxation. How does any one know that
it would do this? Hew can such a statement be
proven until the question and all that it entails
has been fully examined.
This is why the Boaro of Trade appointed
the committee to investigate. If it ���will increase
taxation, then of course the question promises to
be a debatable one, but if it does not, there should

William Richard McDonnell,
sog of "Paddy" McDonnell, of
Hyder, Alaska, who came to this
district from Seattle in September, 1921. and who for a time
operated the picture show in Hyder, and at the same time drove
a motor stage to Premier, has
invented a Pennine four-wheel
brake that bids fair to revolutionize this feature of motor cars
in the very near future. Mr
McDonnell left for Seattle yesterday for the purpose of placing
his invention on the market, and
expects to reside permanently in
the south.
Previous to coming to this district, this brilliant young inventor spent some years in a number
of the big motor factories of the
States, and having a good
grounding in motor mechanics,
it was while driving his motor
stage on the Premier hill that he
ent, and has to stop only ene-
tenth part per square inch, of
that which the present brake is
called upon to do, consequently
the brake by contracts now entered into, based upon actual experience and tests has longer
life, and is to be guaranteed for
five years without any attention
whatsoever.
This brake  is so  constructed
as to be   adaptable   to  all   four
wheels of a car.   Due to this and
the greatly   increased   brakeing
surface obtained of the McDonnell brake, it has   to  stop  enly
sixty-two hundredths of a pound
per square   inch   brakeing  sur- i
face, as compared with the pres-j
ent brake, which  is   6*   pounds
per square inch of brakeing sur-i
face.
New Oiling System
Mr McDonnell has as well perfected a hydraulic oil system for
applying his brakes, thereby obviating any mechanical operation
or attention required in its op-
plication. The oil being under
pressure applies all four brakes
evenly ancl at the same time.
The principle on which this hydraulic system works is, that the
lubricating oil is pumped from
the engine base, under constant
pressure, and is used to apply
the   brakes   through   a    piston

covtry that he commenced to
apply the principle to a brake;
as a result of continued experiments and study, he perfected a
brake that has by demonstration
on the part of manufacturers,
been proven to have a future
that will in a short time revolu-
tiouize the brakeing systems in
motor cars, and at the same time
can be applied wherever a brake
is required.
Much More Efficient
On motor cars the McDonnell
brake has been proven in actual
tests to be from 40 to 75 per cent
more efficient, according to the
|speed of the cars, than any brake
heretofore or at present in use.
The principle employed in the
McDonnell brake is one whereby
one disc, or brakeing surface,
remains stationary, and the other
revolves with the wheel. The
brake itself contains several of
these rotating, and non-rotating
discs, thus making up the brakeing surface. The brake action
is brought into effect by one
moving part compressing the
plates or discs together. Due
to the number ef these plates
used, the brake has about ten
times the brakeing surface of
the present type of brake, and
is thereby ten times more effici-

Means Big Income
Mr McDonnell has completely
protected his idea with patents,
and has entered into contracts
with some of the largest motor
car manufacturers that will result in netting him a very larne
income from royalties in the near
future. These contracts are so
drawn as to enable him to retain
the patent rights. According to
some of these contracts the brake;
is to be applied to 1926 models,
with the result that it is only a
short time before the Premier
hill, which was basically responsible for this invention, witnesses car drivers using it to circum-
naviuate its tortuous twists and
turns. Truly can it be said
that the Premier hill has not
only added some $20,000,000 to
the wealth uf the world, but that
it has also given generously to
the mechanical advancement of
civilization.
