.     ..      J     What would such trail connection ac-
mately correct many of these statements [ complish, is naturally the first question
contain considerable humor and tragedy.'. asked.   It will shorten the winter travel and mail
Humor?   Strained and cheap, yes.   Tragedy?   In the ignorance and lack of grasp
of fundamentals exhibited by so many en
trusted with the present and future  of
this Province.
Here are three samples of some of the
brainless vaporings indulged in by representatives of three parties during the
present session:
One advocates the moving of all the
people out of northern B. C. to the south.
What would that do?   Double unemployment in the centres and-cause a decrease
in business for the south of 50 per cent.
Another advocates the building of
200 miles of scenic motor road from the
G. T. P. Railway to Bella Coola for tourists. (This would serve little other purpose, and then for only about five months
in the year.) Fancy wanting to add another $4,000,000 to our already heaviest
per capita debt of any Province in Canada.
Still another member recommends the
giving of a grant of land along the P.G.E.
''Pee Gee," to graduates from the University of B. C, as if these same worthy
students from this "You Bear Costs" have
not already cost the taxpayer enough,
without being asked to keep them for life.
Some Christmas tree our worthy legislators would decorate with nice little
presents, done up in bright silver paper
and tied with pretty string, for that ever
route from Telegraph Creek and Dease Lake coun
try to the centres of the south by at least 1000
miles. In other words, it would bring that district approximately 1000 miles nearer, and so give
great impetus to the development of its vast resources.
Supposing that by some miracle Vancouver
trade routes to the Orient and Europe could be
shortened by 1000 miles���what tremendous impetus it would give that city! The same applies
proportionately to Telegraph Creek and Dease
Lake.
Such a trail would as well open up an exceptionally rich area in minerals, furs and timber be-
I tween Stewart and Telegraph Creek, and enable
trappers and prospectors to exploit it, to their
own and the benefit of the whole Province. For
increased development of our minerals, fur and
timber means increased prosperity to all.
"But oh," say some, "it will cost so much
money!" This is incorrect. It will not cost any
more money than a mile of paved road in the
south built to create brewery payrolls and bank
accounts and for the convenience and pleasure of
refugees from the Volsted Act in the form of
tourists.
If properly administered, $30,000 is sufficient
to bring Telegraph Creek and Dease Lake, in
winter, 1000 miles nearer the big centres, the accomplishment of which will, in one year, mean a
saving to, and an increase in business, fully equal
to the total cost.
This is one branch only of a trail system advocated in these columns some three years ago.
i The local Board of Trade have now taken up the
question, and no effort should be spared on the
part of the people affected, until this necessity is
a realization.

The relative exhaustion of the

resulted in a steady decline in
Canadian production, until in

with the steady development of
the North Ontario field, production has shown a rising tendency, sometimes interrupted for
a year, but mounting still higher
the next.
The growth is due almost entirely t�� the development of the
Ontario field, which in 1924 pro-
\ duced gold valued at $25,700,000.
This year, it is expected, will see
a still greater rise, for Ontario
production reached the $15,000,-

Local Stocks
(Quotations by H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
The greatest activity for some
time was shown in all Portland
Canal stocks during the past
week. Among the most marked
were:
Independence, which came into big demand on a steadily rising market.
Victoria Mines were slightly
bid for.
Dunwell slackened off a point
or two, but this stock always
finds a ready market.
Porter Idaho still remained at
low levels, with a large amount
of trading, especially on the
southern markets.
Indian remained steady and
was in slight demand.
There are rumors current of a
big merger on some Bear River
properties, but at the time of going to press no authentic information was obtainable.
Though Marmot Metals is
closed for the winter months the
stock remained very steady. This
is caused by the fact that some
exceptional discoveries were
made just before snow came.
