STEWART,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA,   FRIDAY,   AUGUST 27,   1926
G.N.R. DIRECTOR
IS MESSED
Mathew Lodge Sees Great
Future for This District-
Other Speakers at Board
of Trade Luncheon
$5 THE  YEAR-lOc. the Copy
The Stewart Board of Trade
tendered a supper at 7 o'clock
last Friday evening, to Mathew
Lodge, of Moncton, N.B.. a director of the Canadian National
Railways, who is interested in
mining in this district, and spent
several days last week looking
ever his interests and the camp
generally. Wm. C. Cameron,
president of the board, introduced Mr Lodge to the iarge gathering, among whom were a number of mining men.
Mr Lodge, in opening his remarks, paid great tribute to the
prospectors. "They are the real
pioneers, and responsible for
the opening up of California,
Australia, B.C., Yukon and Alaska, and latterly Northern Ontario, and in so doing adding untold wealth to the world. The
Pat Dalys' have done a great
deal for the world."
Mr Lodgathen went on to say
that he has been interested for
many years in the development
of the Peace River country, but
that until the possibilities of the
route out to Stewart had been
laid before him the other day he
had never realized how short and
apparently feasible it is. In the
Peace River are two closed oil
and gas domes, credited with being the largest in the known
world, and when these are drilled and thoroughly prospected,
it is expected they will yield a
large supply.
Concerning the coal resources,
the speaker went on to say that
he had recently an analysis of
some large bituminous coal beds
that showed it to be of a quality
unequalled. In 1912 he had himself seen grain harvested on the
18th day of August. The Peace
River, he stated, contains 25,-
000,000 acres of land fit for the
Plow. The country, in his opinion, is the last great west, containing tremendous natural resources awaiting cheaper railway
transportation.
"Stewart I find to be a live
community, and my advice to
you is to press your case. Pamphlets and written advertising is
alright, but it does not carry as
much punch as personal representation, therefore you should make
every effort to send an able man
from your community who can
Present your case. One thing
that has struck me most force-
ib'y is that here at Stewart,
within 400 miles of  the  Peace I MacKenzie
River, is an excellent harbor and
splendid townsite. Your harbor
I find to be on the 56th parallel,
the only one in the world that
far north that is free from ice
the year round, which facts
should be pressed home.
"You have everything to make
Stewart a big  town,   but  you
will meet with opposition; however, do not let that deter  you;
keep after your railway idea; get |
people in and show them around
the district as I have seen it;  it
will take time, but if you keep ���
after it you will get it.    One of
Canada's troubles today   is  sectionalism.   This must be forgot-'
ten.   Everyone must think  of, j
work for, and boost for Canada!
as a whole."
The next speaker called upon,
was Pat Daly, who complimented |

Mann Townsite Sold
The biggest real estate deal
consummated in Stewart in
years is being concluded this
week in Vancouver, whereby
the entire subdivision of D. L.
443, comprising some 800 lots,
adjoining Stewart on the east
side of the railway track and
locally known as the Mann
Townsite, is being sold. No
particulars other than these
are yet available. It is believed locally that this deal
portends important developments in thii district in the
very near future.

BARITE GROUP
HAS GOOD ORE
Some fine samples of ore were
brought in this week from the
Barite group, near the head of
Bear river, the largest specimen
weighing 30 pounds and carrying
a large percentage of fine-grained galena, the gangue matter being principally barite. Harry
Quickstad, head of the company
owning the property, says the
work done this year has greatly
improved the showings. Open
cuts have exposed a vein for 300
feet in length, averaging six
feet in width, and carrying a
considerable amount of ore such
as the samples displayed. Wm.
Tompkins, recognized as one of
the best hard-rock miners in the
district, spent two weeks on the
ground with Mr Quickstad, and
sampled one of the cuts for assaying, receiving returns as follows: Silver, 12.32 oz., $7.64;
lead. 57.2 per cent, $101.82; total
$109,46; silver figured at 62c. per
oz. and lead at 8.9c per pound.

Tennis Tournament
The finals of the loca! tennis
club tournament were played off
last week, exceptionally good
tennis being a feature throughout. Miss Muriel Crawford has
developed into Stewart's lady
champion, with a promising future. Winners were: Ladies'
singles, Miss Muriel Crawford;
men's singles, J. W.Wilson; mixed doubles, Miss Wilson and H.
D. Rochfort. The junior tournament for girls resulted in Miss
Joan Mellor defeating all comers. Entries for the Rolston cup
for mixed doubles, open to teams
from Stewart, Anyox, Premier
and Alice Arm, should be in the
hands of the secretary of the
Stewart club not later than August 27th.
PORTLAND  CANAL
ORE FIRST AGAIN
Portland Canal News ore exhibit has again taken first prize
at the Vancouver Exhibition,
though unfortunately this year
as the best privately owned exhibit, the district exhibits applying to the government resident
engineers' districts. Therefore
the Portland Canal exhibit was
lumped with others on the north
coast frem Bella Coola north,
the whole of District No. 1,
which took first prize, winning
the shield for the first out of
three years. This is the fourth
prize the Portland Canal News
exhibit has taken. Last year it
was first in ail B. C. for the best
general district exhibit at both
Vancouver and Prince Rupert,
and second at New Westminster.
H.G.Unwin. of the Ore Mountain Mining Co., returned Saturday from a business trip to the
Prairies.
Mr and Mrs B. O. Erickson,
owners of large mining interests
in the district, arrived from the
south Saturday.
INDEPENDENCE
IMPORTANT FIND
Ore Bodies Traced To Foot
Of Hill, Giving Fine Site
For Permanent Work by
Deep Tunnel Mining
By tracing out the Nos. 3 and
4 veins of the Independence system from an elevation of 3300
feet, where the principal work
upon them has been done, down
to the bottom of the mountain,
Jack Fitzgerald is confident he
has solved the main development
problem for this property and
has materially increased its value, For the past two weeks,
with a small crew of men, he has
been opening up a great vein
that shows on the surface an iron
capping 40 feet wide, and only
300 feet above Bear river, or an
elevation above sea level of 600
feet. In facing up a tunnel the
iron cap has been cut through,
and the entire face shows a good
milling grade of galena ore. The
iron capping is identical with
that found on the vein outcrops
high up on the mountain.
Veins 3 and 4 are separated on
the upper reaches of the mountain by a dyke which narrows as
lower elevatiens are reached, and
at the foot of the mountain has
disappeared, throwing the two
veins together to form one. By
driving ahead the tunnel he has
just started, the ore can be followed all the way into the mountain and a depth of over 4000
feet obtained. Such development would eliminate the ultimate necessity for an expensive
aerial tram, and the considerable
cost of transporting mining material and supplies up the steep
mountain side.
Bananas Next Perhaps
There is a popular superstition
to the effect that cucumbers will
not grow outdoors in Stewart.
John Lindsey has given the printer ocular and gustatory proof
to the contrary. This splendid
specimen of concentrated colic
was eight inches long, nine inches in circumference, as green as
the Emerald Isle, and solid as
the Bank of Montreal.

MINING INDUSTRY PROSPERS
Signs that the mining industry of this
district is not only getting on its feet, but
also that the work done and being done,
with results obtained, is attracting the at
tention of the mining world, are on every
hand in evidence.
When it is realized that there are employed in the district at the moment, on
mining and mine development, some 700
men, more than at any time in its history,
an idea of the progress being made can be
readily grasped. It can be said, and in fact
is often affirmed by men in the industry,
that the district is this year experiencing
more real, genuine development, and making greater progress, than at any time in
its history.
With regard to the statement that the
district is more than ever attracting the
attention of the mining world, it is interesting to note that at the moment the Trail
Consolidated, as well as the Britannia Co.
are represented by engineers in the district looking over various properties and
operations.
During the summer several other powerful mining interests have had their engineers in the local field, and doubtless before the season ends there will be others.
Of course it must be realized that these
field men are simply looking about, getting
information for their principals, and nothing more for the moment. However, the
significant fact is that they are keeping a
close watch on developments, in order to
step in when opportunity offers.
PREVENT
Herewith is published a letter from
William Fraser, one of the pioneer prospectors of this district, in which he refers
to the mineral exhibit recently displayed
at the Vancouver Exhibition. The expressions of appreciation therein are, we
feel certain, heartily endorsed by every
prospector and resident of this district,
and the Portland Canal News, which has
always done everything within its power
for the advancement of the district, considers it a great pleasure at being the medium through which these expressions of
appreciation, with which it is in hearty
accord, are voiced.
The Editor,
Portland Canal News:���
I would like to
mention in your paper the success that the
mineral exhibit from Portland Canal has
been, and particularly the relief map which
helped to explain to the thousands of people who passed by. I would like you to
thank the members of the Chamber of
Mines, Messrs. Woodside, Browning and
J. A. Fraser for their very good work in
helping us out. Sam Fitzgerald also
worked hard, and we have accomplished a whole
lot for the district. 1 would kindly ask you to
thank them through your paper. (Ed. Note���
Which we most certainly do, on behalf of the entire district.) Alice Arm was ably represented
by Jock Morrison, and the district as a whole will
greatly benefit by it.
Yours truly,
William Fraser,
St. Francis Hotel,
Vancouver, Aug. 18.

B. C. FOREST SERVICE
Every nation and every people down
through the ages have produced their heroines.   None have been exempt.   Many
acts of supreme heroism, entailing great endurance, suffering and self sacrifice, have been performed by women the world over, and to the long
roll of these illustrious names must be added Miss
Tnelma Burleigh, of Hyder, Alaska, who, with
her companion, the late Mr Earle Hinckley, made
a vain effort to return home frem a picnic party
up Mt. Lincoln, as reported in last week's issue.
Caught in the dark, and seeing her companion suddenly disappear into the black depths beneath her very feet, his fall being greatly accen.
tuated by the streak of fire and
sparks from his hobnailed boots
and pick striking the rocks, this
brave 18 year old maid, not
knowing but that at the next
moment her fate would be that
of her unfortunate companion,
climbed around and down, and
down, into the dark, until, finally guided by his groans, she
reached the spot where he was
lying. There, alone, high on
the precipitous side of the mountain, with nothing but the black
yawning depths beneath, and the
stars overhead, Miss Burleigh
used all her womanly sympathy,
and knowledge gained us a Girl
Guide, to allay as much as possible his suffering, from 10 o'clock
at night until 5 in the morning,
tearing her clothing in strips for
bandages and using the balanee,
as well as her body, to protect
him from the cold; disp'aying
those high qualities of heroism
by which her sex, times without
number, have enslaved the worship of humanity.

THE TRUTH
ABOUT PURE BEER
IN the past several years the public has
been told many things about beer, yet it
is not surprising that many people should
not know what beer really is, for the merits
of pure beer have been almost entirely neglected by controversiohulists.
Pure beer is a scientifically made malt solution, derived from malted barley and flavored with hops. In this malted condition
the grain is much more nourishing than in
its natural state and the beer has many beneficial activities when taken as a beverage.
In the first Mace pure beer is in itself a
complete food, rich in proteins, maltose
and dextrin, mineral salts and organic
phosphorous compounds. It is superior
to either cider or wine in its nourishing
qualities. Consumed at thi rate of
one bottle per meal, it would replace
300 grammes of bread in food value,
because of its content of extractives,
carbohydrates and proteins.
Pure beer assists valuably in Ihe assimilation of olher
foods, for, hy reason of its hop-hitler principles, Its
weak alcoholic strength and its dissolved carbonic
acid {-as, <t exerts u beneficially stimulating action on
the stomach.
Beer is a beverage rich in vilnmines, so necessary (o
the well heinil of the human organism and as a defense against disease. It is aseptic, for Ihe wort has
heen completely sterilized hy prolonged boiling in the
presence of the hop bitters, which are strongly
antiseptic
The health-giving qualities of the pure beer sold to
tlie people of British Columbia are secured and maintained in Ihe model plants of the Vancouver Brewery
Limited, Bainier Brewing Co. of Canada Limited,
Westminster Brewery Limited, Silver Spring Brewery
Limited, and the Victoria Phoenix Brewing Co. Limited,
members of the Amalgamated Breweries of British
Columbia, which arc models of scientific care and
cleanliness. They are open for inspection at all times,
and visitors are gladly welcomed.

Local Stocks .
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
The market during the past
week waa steady, though not
many transactions went on record. It appears as if the public are waiting for the Dunwell
to actually come into the dividend paying class, before putting more money into the mining
stocks that are still in the prospect stage.
Another fact bearing on the
market is the coming dominion
election. Capital appears to be
waiting for the result before
looking for investments.
It is reported to the local brokerage firm that a far greater interest is being taken in the district than has been evidenced
for some time past, and the market field for local securities is
much greater than ever before.
It has been yery encouraging
this summer to note the number
of prominent people who have
visited Stewart and the district.
All this will tend to widen the
market for local stocks.
National Silver is in very active demand on a steadily rising
market. This is caused by the
fact that the English market is
demanding Sebakwe, which stock
is rapidly enhancing in value.
Premier is in demand, with
very little stock offering on the
open market.
The market closed as follows:

province."
Concerning the railway idea
he stated that he had been over
a good deal of the territory such
a railway would traverse, "and
there are great tracts of very
productive country that would
be opened by it, The Peace Pass
is the lowest through the Rockies, and presents no engineering
difficulties. Not more than 700
feet of rock work would be necessary, and only one bridge."
Before the gathering adjourned, Mr Lodge again said a few
words. Eulogising Sir Henry
Thornton he said: "He is the
biggest man in the railway world
today, and has had to deal with
and solve many great problems.
I hope that be remains at the
head of the Canadian National
for many years to come.
"It will be my endeavor, if I
remain on the board, to try and
induce Sir Henry to visit this
wonderful distriet of yours next
year and see for himself its tremendous possibilities.
"I understand that next year
the International Geological Congress, which met last year in
Madrid, will meet in Vancouver,
and I will try during the winter
to prevail upon them to have at
least a section visit this district.
You, ef course, must do your
part, and I ask your Board of
Trade to immediately -take this
matter up with the secretary."
