DOMINION DAY
CELEBRATION
Stewart Dons Gala Attire
And Celebrates Birthday
Of the Nation in Pleasing
Manner
The morning of July 1 broke
bright and fair, and a more glorious Dominion Day has never
before been seen in Stewart.
Perfect weather, without a cloud
in the sky, and a carefully prepared program that was  carried
as passengers, pulled an immense
truck carrying a replica of the
tramline with buckets and towers, showing the handiwork of a
genius in construction. The U w-
ited Services Club entered a clever imitation of a "tank," a barricaded dug-out and a squad of
service men in uniform, with a
pairof"femme de guerre" in
attendance. One of the most attractive floats carried Miss Mil-
dnd Jancowski, garbed as "Miss
Canada" and surrounded by nine
little girls representing the nine
provinces. Individual mention
of all those taking part in the
parade would be impossible in
the limitations imposed by space
available.

bined to give a day of recreation
and pleasure that was a delight
to all young souls���there were
no old ones. Tlie Native Sons of
Canada had advertised for 1000
boosters, and more than that
number attended.
Thejtown was decorated with
a profuseness that far outshone
any previous attempts in this
line. Maple boughs predominated in the decorations,  entwined
a classical concert in the business
heart of the town in the eveniug,
cannot be too highly praised.
Their time and tone are perfect
and their selections show a discrimination that was most pleasing to lovers of good music. The
same may be said of their orchestra, which supplied music for
the dance with which the holiday's festivities closed.
Field Sports
Four teams were entered for
the   tug-of-war���S.   S.   Mogul,

namite explosions, given as the
royal salute, and shaking the
town like heavy artillery.
The celebration opened with a
parade led by Sam   Desehamps
carrying a large Canadian   flag
and followed by H. Scovil, president of the local Assembly, Native Sons of Canada,   and   marshal of the day.   Then came the
Kincolith Silver band, composed
of 25 Indian musicians, and the
various floats, decorated cars and
calathumpian artists, all  evincing painstaking preparation and
producing an effect that was not
far from bewildering.     Following the Mooseheart float, the local Legionaires paraded in white
uniforms   and   purple   fezzes.
Among the equestriennes  Miss
Fraser, as a Crusader, Miss Mel-
lor as a  lady of  the  Georgian
period, and Mrs Stickney,   as a
cow-girl, attracted special attention, and George Fraser, in  an
unique red white and blue costume, on a stalwart mount, made
an imposing appearance. A large
number of Native Sons marched
in the parade,   and  about two
dozen   boys   carrying  lacrosse
sticks, symbolic of Canada's national game.
Among the floats, that entered
by the tram crew of the Premier
was outstanding. Six magnificent horses, handled by that veteran skinner, Hank Markham,
with Frank Frank Fisher, tram
superintendent and Ed Fernald,
foreman at the lower terminal,
A ragged baseball game, that
was unique for glaring errors
interspersed with brilliant plays,

DOCK AND ROAD
APPROPRIATIONS
W. C. Cameron, president of
the Stewart Board of Trade, yesterday received the following
telegram from Fred Stork, M.P.
for Skeena Riding at Ottawa:
Supplementary estimates tabled today contain $43,000 for new
wharf at Stewart and $31,000
for surfacing the Stewart-Hyder
road.
RESUMING WORK
ON THE VICTORIA
After a long shut-down the
Victoria Mines was reopened
this week with the letting of
two tunnel contracts to H. Horstman of Stewart, who took a
small crew of men up to the mine
Tuesday morning to start work.
These contracts call for the extension of one tunnel 25 feet
and the other 75 feet, after which
no statement has been made of
the intentions.
Trail to Dalhousie
A good pack trail is being con
structed to the Dalhousie property, branching from the Independence trail just after the
latter crosses Bear river, and
then working up the mountain
on an easy grade in a southerly
direction. Later on it is the intention to build a bridge some
distance south of the present
crossing, which will considerably
shorten the distance from town.
About one half of the distance,
which totals two miles, has been
completed, which includes the
most expensive part of the work.
Memorial Services
Sunday evening, June 27, the
people of Stewart held what has
now developed into an annual
event, a memorial service at the

former residents of Stewart who
laid down their lives for their
country in the Great War. Members of the United Services Club
with the Boy Scouts gathered at
their club and marched to the

number of people attended, laying wreaths and flowers at the
foot of the Cenotaph as tokens
of remembrance and appreciation for the sacrifices made.

be their future'home. MrsJ.W.
Frame has just returned to Seattle from Montrose, California.

DISSOLUTION
IS IMMINENT
As we go to press the following telegram is received:
Ottawa, July 2.���Following
right on the defeat, by 108 to 101
of a want of confidence motion
on the Consersative tariff policy
introduced Wednesday by former Premier King, the Meighan
Government was defeated Thursday night, 96 to 95, on a confidence motion affecting the Constitution of Canada. Wild scenes
occurring in the House of Commons were unprecedented in the
history of the Dominion. Dissolution of Parliament now seems
inevitable.
VANCOUVER PLANS
GREAT EXPOSITION
Throughout the Province of
British Columbia the great attractions to be presented at the
Greater Vancouver Exhibition,
August 4 to 14, have created tremendous interest, and the management of the Exhibition Association is making substantial arrangements fer housing the
greatest crowd that has ever attended an exhibition on the Pacific slope.
H.M, Coldstream Guards Band
will be there the first four days.
Saturday, Aug. 7th, will be the
40th annual Caledonian games.
The second week will see the
great stampede, when the greatest string of bronchos and riders
the west has ever seen will be
brought together. Every night
in the second week will see the
mammoth musical spectacle.
"Commonwealth of Nations"
produced by 14 bands with beautiful scenery, and a great display nightly of fireworks.
Hon. R. R. Bruce, Lieutenant
Goyernor of British Columbia,
will open the exhibition in his
official capacity, attended by a
brilliant retinue.
Lecture on Great Pyramid
An audience of some 60 people
listened to the lecture given last
Friday evening hy J. A. Mills,
M.I.M.E., in the United Services Club on "The Great Pyramid." Unfortunately, soon after
the lecture commenced the electric light system broke down and
the lecturer had to proceed using
an electric torch on his notes ar.d
diagram until lamps were procured. However, the lecture,
giving as it did a great deal of
information, was much appreciated and was the subject of much
comment afterwards.

DOMINION DAY
YESTERDAY, July 1st, 1926, every
city and hamlet throughout the length and
breadth of this great land of Canada celebrated Dominion Day, thus commemorating the actual birth of a Nation. It is
well that this be done, and more, for it is
only by thus keeping alive the great historical events and developments of the
past that a people can be consolidated into
a nation, united in a pride of raoe and
nationality, that establishes their entity,
and makes for progress and prosperity.
"Breathes there a man with soul so
dead, who never to himself hath said:
'This is my own, my native land?'"
July 1st, 1926, Canada as we know it,
with its close to ten million people, thousands of miles of railways, great world
trade and commerce, steamship services,
prominent position in the conferences of
nations, records to be proud of, is in reality only 59 years old.
In March, 1867, the Government of
Great Britain passed and made law the
British North America Act, granting to
Canada the basis of her self-governing
constitution, which was put into effect on
July 1st, 1867. This Act created separate
provinces and named Lower Canada, Quebec; Upper Canada, Ontario; uniting them
with the Provinces of New Brunswick and
Nova Scotia in what was and is known today as the Self-governing Dominion of
Canada. This Act re-affirmed the freedom of religious worship and education,
and established French and English
as the official languages. It established
Provincial Governments for the Provinces;
created the present House of Commons as
an elective body by the people, for the
making and enforcing of laws and the
carrying on of the business ofthe country;
the Senate, or Upper House, an appointive
body, upon recommendation by the Government to the Governor General; a Governor General, representing His Majesty,
the King; Lieutenant Governors of the
Provinces, appointed by the Governor General upon recommendation by the Dominion Government. It provided the electoral
representation for the House of Commons
by fixing that of the Province of Quebec
at 65, and each of the other Provinces a
representation bearing the same proportion to its population as 65 is to the population of Quebec. It definitely prescribed
what powers are granted the Provincial
Governments, leaving all else in the power
of the Dominion Government, and international questions by agreement with the
Imperial, Each of the Provinces entering
Confederation did so of its own free will.
The Government of New Foundland voted to enter the Canadian Confederation,
but its people, by popular vote, reversed
this decision. Provision was made in the
B.N.A. Act, as it is called, for the inclusion of other territories; thus the country
west of the Great Lakes and east of the
Rockies was acquired by the Dominion in
1869, which act led later to the rebellion
led by Louis Riel.
ln 1870 Manitoba joined Confederation. British Columbia, which td this
time had been a Crown Colony, joined in
1871, and Prince Edward Island in 1873.
In 1905 Alberta and Saskatchewan were
created separate Provinces within the Dominion. In 1912 the boundaries of Quebec were increased by 354,961 sq. miles;
Ontario by 136,400 sq. miles; Manitoba by
188,100 sq. miles.
No reference to Dominion Day is complete without mention of those rugged
Fathers of Confederation, to whose great
vision Canada of today owes  so  much.
Sir John A. McDonald, Hon. George Brown, Sir
George E. Cartier, Sir Etienne P. Tache, Sir Alexander T. Gait, Hon. Thomas D'Arcy Magee, Sir
Oliver Mowatt, Sir Charles Tupper, Sir Adam G.
Archibald and Sir Leonard Tilley. These men
started a great work, to be completed to a high
destiny by succeeding generations. It is well
that their memory' be kept alive, and that each
generation realize the full significance of its duty.
People who call speculating "gambling" use
language carelessly, The speculator is a pioneer,
an explorer, a builder, a creator; whereas the
gambler is a mere parasite.
We haye great faith in the Portland Canal
district and believe it will eventually be one of
the greatest producing districts in the world-

"In what Western state or
province are the greatest number
of mining opportunities to be
found?"
That question is a bit  unfair
when you consider that you are
comparing unequal geographical
areas. British Columbia is larger
.than    California   and  Montana
combined, three times   as   large
as Arizona, and more than four
\ times the size of  Idaho.     Bear
these facts in mind, then,   when

The water will be diverted from the
Cascade Creek, which is the outlet of
Silver Lake, about 500 feet from the
mouth of the said Cascade Creek,
which point of diversion is approximately 1000 feet south east of the
Falls View Mineral Claim, being Lot
3223, Group 1, District of Cassiar. The
water will be diverted from Silver
Creek at a point about 3500 feet south
of Hog Lake, which point is about 200
feet east of the centre of the easterly
boundary of the said Falls View mineral claim. All the water taken from
the said Cascade Creek and Silver
Creek will be used for power purpose
at a power house situate at a point approximately 2000 feet north of Indian
Lake and the power generated there
will be used upon  the  mine described

The market situation during
the week was very erratic. Dunwell, for no apparent reason,
dropped seme 20 points; it would
appear that this stock is being
held down while big investors
are getting their ordets filled, as
it is always noted that large
blocks offering are quickly taken
up.
B.C.Silver remained in active
demand from $2.15 up. So little
of this stock being on the open
market, small buying quickly
acts on the price.
It is noticed by past years in
the district that this is usually
the quiet period in the stock market, caused by the fact that the
public's mind is turning to holidays. This is usually followed
by an active season in August,
September and October.
Market conditions were never
better than at the present time.
Prices have been extremely low,
which leaves plenty of room for
advance in the local stocks of
merit. The local brokers note
that buying orders are coming
in from all parts of Canada and
the U. S., proving the interest
being taken in the camp from
outside points.
Information has just been received that work is to start immediately on the Victoria Minep
under the supervision of Henry
Horstman. The present low
price of this sloak gives every
opportunity for a rapid enhancement.
