OF INTEREST TO TOURISTS
IT IS pleasing to note that eastern
tourists are paying more attention to the
attractions of Portland Canal this year
than they have done in the past, as indicated in a statement made by B.C.Keeley,
Pacific coast manager of the C. N. R., to a
gathering of Stewart business men a short
time ago. He said that three shiploads
of tourists had been signed up by this line
to visit this port during the month of June.
This shows that the railway and steamship interests have been spreading some
propoganda, to fertilize the seeds sown by
pioneers of the tourist tribe who have
made side trips into this land of delight
during the past few summers, and who all
said they would be confirmed boosters.
It is not so pleasing to note that the
summer boat schedule of the C. N. R. calls
for a stop on Sunday mornings of only two
hours in Stewart. This moves us to ask:
"What's the use of bringing tourists here
unless they cam be given a chance to see
what there is to see?"
As we view it, there are two great
longings connected with the tourists' western trek. One is to plant their feet on
the soil of Alaska, and the other is to cool
these same pedal extremities on glacial ice
in midsummer.   Both of these ambitions
could be realized by the tourists here if
they were given time to realize them.
Alaska is less than a mile from the
Stewart wharf. Four hours would allow
the visitor to ramble over glaciers to his
heart's content. If the ships stop here
six hours instead of two, the dreams of
the easterners could come true.
A prime factor of the western trip is
the matter of cost. Many of the people
who take this trip are people of moderate
means who have scrimped, and saved the
pennies, until they could afford to make
the great adventure- To them, the extra
cost of the far northern trip around the
southern edge of the great Alaskan glaciers is prohibitive; but their longing for
scenery and the summer ice is perhaps
stronger than that which stirs the heart of
the traveler to whom expense is no object.
Alaska and glacial ice can be reached
from Stewart at a cost of perhaps $100 less
than by any other tourist route.
We believe the C. N. R. officials are in
sympathy with obtaining the greatest passenger trade possible for this port. Wt
believe that when they are fully awake tc
the advantages of this- port from the tour-,
ists' point of view, they will put on an advertising campaign that will result in ar
influx of tourists this way. The Board of Trad<
of this town has a live publicity committee wh<
are now preparing data and gathering photos
which will be turned over to the C. N. R. advertising department.
We hope there will be a spirit of mutual
helpfulness stirred up which will result in a threefold benefit���to Stewart, to the C. N. R., and t(
the tourists.

IT CAN'T BE   DONE
One af the first things an editor learns is that he can't please
everybody, says the Cranbrook
Courier. The ones who haven't
learned this are too dumb to run
a newspaper. Human nature is
so constituted that some of our
readers would like to have u.-*
feed them on scandal; some would
like to have us tell the unvarnished truth about them, while
others would like to jail us if we
did. It is a comforting thought
to the editor that the Savior
Himself did not please everybody while He was on earth. We
labor hard to entertain and please
>ur subscribers, but that we
should occasionally fail is ex-'
pected. No matter how old we
may grow to be, however, therf
s one thing that we are nevet
^oing to forget: That is that ar
editor can't please everybody,
nnd isn't going to try. If he
could, he would be wearing wings
on his shoulders in another woi la
nstead of patches on his pants

MONTREAL
fatal Assets in Ercccss of $700,000,000.00
Vancouver is awake to the importance of tht
mining industry. Spokane is awakening. Seattle and Portland, so far as the general run of business men in those communities are concerned, dr
not yet realize that the greatest decade in iht
mining history of the Pacific Northwest is dawning while they dose.
Much credit for the awakening in Vancouver
belongs to the Daily  Sun,  the morning-and-eve-
ning paper which recently   took
over the property of   the  World
and combined the two issues.
The provincial government is
getting solidly behind the Brit
ish Columbia Chamber of Mines.
Big business houses are mailing
checks to support the chamber'**
work. Other similar movements
are in progress elsewhere in the
province. The Kootenays are
organizing, to make certain that
the B. C. chamber dees not become exclusively a Vancouver instead of a provincial affair.
Leading cities on the American
side of the line need to take notice of Vancouver's activities,
both for their municipal good
and for the good of the mining
industry.
Spokane is becoming interested, although mining does not
loom as large in the life of the
Eastarn Washington metropolis
as it did in the days when the
Paulsen, Hutton. Columbia, Empire State, Peyton and other business blocks were built with the
proceeds of mines in British Columbia and Idaho.
Attendance is increasing at
the luncheons of the mining
bodies, however, and faees of
n��en not previously associated
with mining  activities  are  be.

Come boys, greet the boss
And a beaker we'll toss
To the bucko who makes out
the checks.
Tonight he is fine,
But up at the mine,
Tomorrow   he'll  jolt all our
necks.
Here lies, his head upon a chunk
of muck.
The brawny miner, paid off yesterday.
The stud game found him sttict-
}y out of luck--
The liquor vendor took some coin
away.
Yet will he rise,   and   take   his
drill in hand,
And break some more high-grade
to ship away;
Knowing, alas, his tail is useless
and
He will blow in again- the   next
pay day.

Special Information Service
To all parties interested in Portland Canal mining companies
Enquiries Treated in Strictest Confidence.
The arrival in town of a  crew
from the Premier mine to inspect
the Dunwell gave the local   and
outside markets a  strong  boost
in Dunwell and Glacier   Creek,
as it is the belief of  many  that
whoever takes the Dunwell will
also take control in Glacier.    All
the Glacier creek mining  stocks
are  showing   marked  improvement.    Lakeview holds a steady
demand, and as the last 75c issue
of this  stock   is   being  placed
mostly in England a big enhancement in price is looked for in the
very near future.    Marmot Metals Mining Co. Ltd.   (incorporated   name of   the  old   Montana
grouo  of   Marmot   River)    has
found a very ready market,   the
first issue being oversubscribed,
which proves that the   Marmot
district is greatly attracting the
public eye. We are led to believe
that   this  property   will   be  a
steady shipper this summer.
The Porter Idaho Co.. which
will soon be in full operation,
have decided to withdraw their
issue from the market shortly,
ample funds having been raised
for operating purposes. Mr Porter states that the mine will continue to ship high-grade the coming summer, and hopes to eclipse
his splendid record of last summer. Demand for this stock is
very strong, with one of the
wioest markets of any of the
recent incorporations. The general condition points to a big advance in this stock in the early
su.Timer.
