result of an automobile accident
near Duncan when an auto
plunged through the railing of
the Koksilah river bridge into
the stream below.
The lives of all three were
saved by three Indians in the vicinity who heard the crash and
hurried to the scene. The woman
waa first rescued and then Thomey was taken. A little time
elapsed before the Indians learned that a second man was in the
car. and Line's rescue was consequently delayed for some time.
When finally pulled from the
water artificial respiration was
necessary to revive him.

HOMESTAKE GO.
TO REPAIR RY.
The Dolly Varden railway at
Alice Arm will be at once reconditioned and placed in operation,
according to a statement given
the News by A. C. H. Gerhardi,
managing director ot the Consolidated Homestake Mining and
Development Co. Ltd., who are
operating the Toric and adjoining properties in that section.
Mr Gerhardi, who passed thru
yesterday on his way to Alice
Arm, said that he had hoped to
get assistance from the government and other interests in connection with reopening the railway, but as this had not been
forthcoming his company are undertaking the work immediately
upon his arrival, giving them
rail transportation to within f of
a mile of the property.
As soon as this work is completed it is the intention to commence the construction of a concentrator, for which seven tests
have already been made, and
which gave an average recovery
of $22.18 per ton from an ore
body 70 feet wide. The mill is
to be of barrel amalgamation and
concentration type, erected in
units of 50 tons. Most of the
mill machinery as well as machinery for additional power, has
already been ordered. Ample
English capital is behind the undertaking.
DUNWELL SHIPS
ORE JO TRAIL
One hundred and twenty tons
of Dunwell ore, 2100 sacks, went
out on the Prince Rupert yesterday, destined for Trail smelter.
Present work at the mine consists of extending raises through
the ore bodies and drifting for
the purpose of blocking out ore
as rapidly as possible, in readiness for the concentrator the
construction of which will commence about May 1.
As development has proceeded
estimates of tonnage are being
more than bourne out, much to
the satisfaction of the management, .
Well, it's all over, and Billy,
the mascot of the Stewart News
Company's popular store, is declared the most popular dog in
town. Monday evening, 24 hours
before the contest closed, returns
posted showed Bingo, the frien-
ly, quiet airedale who has been
H. C. Bennett's shadow for a
number of years, slightly in the
lead, but on the next day, almost
on the last minute, votes for
Billy poured, in like a flood tide,
and Bingo was swamped. Stag,
the airedale pride of R.T.Crosby,
and Sparkey, the laughing little
red cocker spaniel who trails
George Adams around but has a
smile for everyone, were also
good runners-up for about half
way through the time the contest
lasted.
Amongst us all however, no
matter which dog won the contest, ths most popular dog, the
most faithful and lovable, is the
one loyal four-footed friend that
is more than a friend to each one
of us who owns a dog, whether
I he be large or small, whether he
i have a family tree as imposing as
that of the bluest-blooded peer,
or is just plain, ordinary dog.
Through this contest the Stewart hospital receives over $250
just at a time when it was absolutely essential that funds be secured in some way. The hospital Board have asked this paper
to express their thanks to all
those who took an active part in
bringing about the unqualified
success attained by this unique
election.
All sympathise with the candidate Hot Dog, who loses his deposit.
One of  the surprises  of  the
.contest was the   receipt  of  $17

j G.W.Smith's candidate, Jiggs.

Stewart has another disappearance mystery.
Where is Pete Josephson?
Not many months ago Norman
Mackenzie failed to frequent his
accustomed haunts. Weeks later
his body was found in the bay.
Then John Grant faded out of
human existence somewhere between Stewart and Hyder. His
hat was found floating in the
harbor, but that was all.
And now Pete Josephson, a
tall, strong, quiet Norwegian in
the prime of life, who last fall
purchased a homesite in Stewart
and built a residence, has mysteriously disappeared.
For a week Constable Islip, assisted by Indian trappers from
Hazelton, Freddy Gun-a-noot
and Peter Morrison, adept trackers, has tried to solve the mystery. He has just about come
to the conclusion that Josephson
ended his life in Bear river and
that his body probably lies at the
bottom of the harbor. In the
old snow, underlying a later fall,
the Indians fouria tracks of a
barefoot white man, leading from
| Josephson's house toward the
river.
In the house was all of the
man's clothing, and in the trousers pocket $49.85, the change
from a $50 check he had cashed
a few days before his absence
was noticed.
Letters in the house showed
that he had worked at Powell
River, Campbell River and Myrtle Point before coming here,
but there was nothing that would
give a clue as to relatives. In
his own handwriting were papers indicating that he entertained some peculiar ideas and
was worried.
TENNIS CLUB HOLD
ANNUAL MEETING
UNICORN GROUP
IS NOT BONDED
John Hovland, owner with
Louis Watkins of the Unicorn
group, called at the Alaska
Weekly office in Seattle to deny
the report that the Big Missouri
company had taken the Unicorn.
Mr Hovland says the Unicorn
has not been bonded to the Big
Missouri people nor to any other
interests. Nothing definite has
been done with the Unicorn as
to either a sale or a bond.
The News secured its information from a source that was considered absolutely reliable and
has heretofore always been so.
Rumor Unfounded
Upon investigation the  News
I can discover no foundation   for
rumor current in Stewart during
j the week that the Premier  Gold
Mining Co. has taken   over  the
Indian mine.     This   rumor  ap-
| pears to have  been   caused   by
the fact that some of   the   Premier staff have   recently   been
carrying out exhaustive   under-
I ground examinations and  sampling, the result of which is  nat-
1 orally not   being   made   public.
| The News is not yet in   a   position to state whether the examination has been completed,   nor
the reason for which it was undertaken.
The annual meeting and election of officers of the Stewart
Tennis Club took place last Monday night. The following committee was chosen for the coming seasen: President, H. D.
Rochfort; vice president, S. G.
Lawrence; secretary-treasurer,
R.T.Crosby; executive. MrsH.P.
Gibson, Mrs Wm. Jancowski and
J.W.Wilson.
Cyril Jackson was selected to
supply the club with plans and
specifications for a board court
to be built on the lots owned by
the club; it was decided to erect
this conrt at the earliest possible
date; in the meantime the present cement court at the hospital
is to be put iii repair. The club
also decided to allow an increase
in membership as soon as the
new court is available.

ALICE ARM
THE RESIDENTS of Alice Arm are
to be congratulated upon the very satisfactory mining progress which their district has made during the past year.
Certainly this advancement is necessarily
slow, and has been attended with a certain
measure of disappointment, with which
true and lasting progress seems, whether
with an individual, district or a nation, to
be always associated; for disappointments
have a steadying effect that make for
sound and solid growth, much to be desired in the long run. However, in spite
of their set-backs, ever since the ever-to-
be-regretted Dolly Varden fiasco, the people of Alice Arm have, with the true spirit
of the pioneer, stuck to their job, and year
after year done their utmost to locate new
ore bodies, and further develop those already known, until now, still combatting
innumerable obstacles, the bright future
for which they have so long looked forward, is dawning on their horizon.
The Alice Arm district, like that of
the Portland Canal, and many yet to-be-
prospected districts along this great mineral belt, and in the Interior, has the
goods of which the whole world is so badly
in need���gold, silver, lead, zinc, copper
and other metals, awaiting in many cases
discovery, and in others capital for their
development.
The people of Alice Arm have the
goods, the faith and the perseverence, and
taking a leaf from the book of Stewart
they have given up waiting for the big operating companies to come in and develop
their properties. They have formed very
successfully several local companies which
they are backing with their own money,
and as a result are meeting with success
that is attracting the much-to-be-desired
attention of the bigger capital.
Alice Arm has to fight for her development money, just as Stewart did, and
still is doing, and to the degree that this
is done, will the time be hastened when
that district will become an important
factor in the production of metals.
Just as the hand that created the hills
surrounding Stewart filled them with untold wealth, so are the hills surrounding
Alice Arm. The wealth, and all that it
means, is there for the digging, and the
digging into the ground, as well as for
the money with which to do it, is up to the
people of each individual district; one is
as necessary as the other, and therefore
both have to be tackled with an equal degree of determimtion.

FOOLISHNESS  PERSONIFIED
Fierce and frantic are the efforts put
forth by officials in most offices in their
endeavors to discover ways and means of
spending the public's money on anything
but sensible projects. The more visionary
the scheme, the more avidly is it siezed
upon. Such a proposal was that made a
year ago for sending airplanes from Stewart to Telegraph Creek to map out a trail
between these points. Fortunately this
plan was nipped in the bud, its absurdity
being such that the public press promptly
condemned it, and the people's servants in
office, or at least those who had sponsored
the plan, had not the nerve to press the
undertaking. This is one example in
British Columbia.   There are others that
might be cited, some of which were put into execution and for which the taxpayers are now suffering.
But for absolute downright foolishness we
have to hand it to government officials in the
State of Colorado who have ordered out a platoon
of army airplanes to scare wild ducks away from
the forage crops. It seems incredible that such a
scheme could have been conceived in a government office instead of in the incurable ward of an
insane asylum.
Supposing the farmers had to hire flying
machines to drive ducks away. How much profit
do you think they would make per ton on their
alfalfa? The farmer pays, of course.���an infin-
tismal mite���his share of the tax money used for
the purpose. The whole comes from the public
purse.
Spending thousands of dollars to save a few
cents reminds us of ^Esop's fable about the monkey which stopped a fly from annoying his sleeping master by hitting it with a piece of the surrounding formation. He killed the fly alright,
but broke his master's jaw.

are good miners and have great
faith in the country."
Since W. S. and Duke Harris
is one and the same identical
party, he could hardly be "miners. "' But he is skookum enough
and enough of of a rustler, to do
the work of several miners.
"Duke" gets hfs nickname because his first name is Wellington; and he is well na.ned after
the Iron Duke, for he is some

unwary. Sad to relate, these
gentry did not always handle the
stocks of companies which had
properties on which there was
every reason to expect good returns from development. It is
doubtful if development work
was ever intended on some of
them, for we believe that the
stock sold was largely "allotment
stock,"'none of the money received going into the company's
treasury. The final result was
that legitimate mining companies
were hampered for lack of capital and unable to complete their
season's programme. Several
have now come to believe that it
is hopeless to look to the Canadian public for funds, and are
turning to British and American
capital for support. Five years
hence the Canadian Citizen will
curse the wickedness which permits the dividends from our
mines to go out of the country;
he will still patronize the high-
powered salesman and purchase
from him "Miami Marshes" and
"Texas Oils." which do n��t find
a ready market where they are
known	
The cities of Vancouver, Victoria and New Westminster contain many people who have done
well in mining, making good returns on their investments. Money should be available tor financing good looking properties.
People are, however, too inclined
to pay great attention to the
market fluctuations of stocks in
companies which are only engaged in development of their
property. The Dunwell may be
called a proven mine but not yet
equipped for shipping. Its stock
took the public eye two years
ago, perhaps on account of rumored deals at fancy prices, and
soared to $6 and $8 per share.
Then it emulated the man who
stepped on the hanana skin, and
went down to $1.30 with no buyers. Many people had a heavy
"stock market" loss, but said
they had "lost money mining."
The result was serious to the
financing, locally, of mining development, yet it was absolutely
ridiculous for the fluctuations of
Dunwell shares aid not in any
way concern the values or possibilities of mining properties in
the District.

The Vancouver Province publishes a portrait of "Billy"
Smitheringale, nephew of Mr
and Mrs W.B.George, who spent
his summer vacation of 1921 in
Stewart and pitched for the local
baseball team. In connection
with the portrait the Province
has the following to say:
A native son of British Columbia, a graduate of King Edward
High School, and a graduate in
science from the University of
British Columbia, William Vick-
ers Smitheringale has just received the distinction of having
a scholarship conferred upon him
at the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, where he is studying for his doctor's degree. Mr
Smitheringale graduated from
the University of British Columbia in 1924, with his full master's degree. For several years
he was employed by the Daily
Province, first as a carrier, and
was later in a position in the
circulation department, which he
filled while he carried on his
studies. He is aged 24, and the
son of Mrs D. A. Smitheringale.

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
Rumors that the Premier had
taken an interest in the Indian
caused a big'flurry in this stock.
Nothing authentic can be obtain-
in this connection. The stock at
present is very speculative.
Independence remains in active demand and higher levels
are expected in this stock.
Porter Idaho showed marked
weakness. Large blocks of this
stock were offering with very
few buyers.
Premier dropped a few points
but remained in steady demand
around the $2.60 mark.
Dunwell snowed marked
strength on a steadily rising
market. This stock is looked
upon to reach its old price of
around $6.00. Reports from the
management that the blocking
out of ore is continuing with excellent results.
Glacier Creek remained steady
and came into active demand on
any weakening being shown.
Silver Crest is steadily climbing and on the continued good
reports coming in from the mine,
higher levels are expected in
this stock.
After a long period of inactivity Lakeview showed some action. Reports from the office of
the company are that ample development capital for operations
has been promised from England.
It is expected that this stock will
show a marked increase in price.
Marmot Metals remains steady
with practically no stock offering. Most of the cheap offerings
have been absorbed and higher
levels are expected as soon as
operations start. It is reported
from the company that this property is financed for summer operations.
