Starting at 1 o'clock the festivities will open with a parade in
keeping with the reasons for
which the day is declared a national holiday. This will be followed by the rock-drilling contest. No one who has never seen
such a contest can appreciate the
excitement connected with it,
hut the oldtimers, to whom the
rock drilling was the principal
event in every celebration of a
mining camp, are looking forward to this feature with the
keenest anticipation.

They report having located six
parallel leads on the Montreal,
striking in a northerly direction
and dipping to the east. A number of open cuts were made in
these and three tunnels driven,
aggregating 70 feet. One vein,
they stated, can be traced for
about 1500 feet, another for 1000
feet, and the balance for several
hundred feet. One appears to
be about 40 feet wide, another
28 feet, while the others vary
from three to five feet. Values

There will also probably lie a
number of events of interest and
excitement pulled off that are
not officially on the program. In
any case there will not be a dull
moment.
Murders are so scarce in this
district that few members of the
community have ever even seen
one. An enthusiastic member
of the Bports committee suggested that if two or three samples
of this popular Chicago pastime
were displayed they might vastly
amuse the crowd. This idea was
frowned down however, it being
pointed out that considerable inconvenience would be caused,
Stewart having no morgue.
The advertisement last week
called for "honest and polite
gamblers" to deal in the Klondike Camp. Well, everyone
knows that all gamblers are polite* but as to their being honest,
you will have to look after your
��wn poke.
The Opera House and United

these will be supplemented by

Bunting, with the widely-
known "Stampede John" Sten-

located the ground, will retain a

The property is about 50 miles
inland from Haines, on the Alaska coast. A large body of gold-
silver ore carrying values from
$10 to $'<0 a ton is said to be exposed. M# Bunting will leave
next Wednesday for the north,
accompanied by engineers representing the Hecla Mining company. Program of development
for next spring will be arranged.

W. J. Elmendorf Here
W.J.Klmendorf, well known
mining engineer from Seattle,
who was prominently connected
with this district in the early
days, being connected with the
development of tho Portland
Canal mine, is in the district for
the purpose of looking over the
Phoenix Company's holdings, in
which he is interested, also in
the interests of the bond holders
of the Portland Canal Tunnels
Co., with whom a deal is being
made by the Dunwell Co. forthe
use of the old tunnel in the development of hydro power for
the Dunwell Co. Mr Elmendorf
expects to remain in this district
about a week.
CYCLONE JOHNNY
EVIDENTLY LOST
No Trace Fonnd of Popular
Young Prospector Who
Was Opening Up Tide
Lake District
Gigantic Natuie, as we have
it in this district, has apparently
claimed another life, that of John
Berngden, a young man of about
26 years, who has been prospecting in this district since 1920,
and locally known as "Cyclone
Johnny" owing to his method of
travel in the hills.
It appears that he was to show
Fred and Wm. Jancowski, and
John Campbell of Hyder oyer
some claims at Tide lake, which
is on the other side of the Salmon
river divide. As he was not
ready to leave with them, they
went ahead with the arrangement that he would ovetake
them. Arriving at the lake on the
21st of July, they waited there
until the 27th, then thinking he
was not coming they crossed
over from where they were camped and came back. Arriving at
the Troy mines on the way out,
they found that he had left there
to join them on the 22nd of July.
This was substantiated by a note
they found he had left at the
Behnsen cabin, which they reached half a mile before they arrived at the Troy. Though this
note had first been dated July
26, this date was scratched ont
and 27 put in in its place, addressed te Roy Priest, asking him to
meet him at August Mountain.
Not having seen the missing
man, they concluded he had
changed his mind, and had possibly returned to town or gone
elsewhere, they returned to town
only to find that he had not
been seen nor heard of.
The matter was reported to
the Provincial police, and a
search party went out on the
3d of August. A thorough
search was made of all cabins in
the vicinity without result. Footsteps taken to be those of the
missing man, were found, however, leading into a swift stream
just where it flows into Tide
lake aud at the place  where  he
Boat Changes
The fall schedule of the C.N.R
steamships is about to go into
effect. The Prince Rupert will
call as usual tomorrow, and then
change to Sundays, leaving Vancouver on the 9th and arriving
here on the 12th. The Prince
Charles will make the last call
for this season next Tuesday.
SOMETHING NEW
ON THEJCENNETH
H.P.Gibson and Louis Legge
have recently done considerable
work on their Kenneth group of
five claims, formerly the Mobile
property, located on the west
side of the south fork of Glacier
creek about four miles from the
wagon road and eight from Stewart. At an elevation of *3500 feet
the property has a good cabin
with accommodations for 11 men;
there is ample timber and water
and an aerial tram could be constructed to reach tidewater within four miles.
The work recently done has
shown up another vein, and in
addition has proved the extension of the vein upon which work
was previously done, for a total
distance of 1100 feet, extending
both above and below the old
workings. This vein has a width
varying from three to four feet,
from which assays were taken
running as high as $234 per ton
in silver, lead and zinc, the silver
content of this assay being 402
ounces. The vein located this
year lies several hundred feet to
the west, and has been traced
for about 1000 feet, showing a
width approximating six feet.
C. L. Hibbard of Seattle, who
is heavily interested in the Outland Silver Bar, where some interesting developments are taking place, arrived Saturday and
went up to the mine.
always forded it. Going to the
other side, no tracks could be
found coming out. This led te
the conclusion that he had tried
to cross at this peint but the
stream being veryswift and swol-
en, he had been swept off his
feet and out into the lake, and
possibly drowned.
On August 25 a boat was taken
to the lake, and Constable Potterton assisted by Fred Jancowski, John Campbell and Blondy
Charlton, made another and complete search of the lake and its
shores without result.
"Cyclone Johnny" Berndgen
has been given up as lost. His
only known relative is his mother, living at 2327 Penn Ave.,
Minneapolis.

GOOD ROADS ESSENTIAL
This north coast is becoming more
and more a Mecca for tourists.   The Canadian National Steamships  report  that
this is the best tourist season they have
ever experienced.    Not only was every
boat on the Alaskan run booked to capacity, but so also was the Prince Charles,
which takes in many points of interest on
the British Columbia coast, such as Anyox, Stewart and (he Queen Charlotte Islands, making possibly the best short trip
of any boat on the coast for tourists.   All
those making it are loud in their praises
te their friends, with the result that each
year sees this business greatly increasing.
With the gradual annual increase in
districts such as this and the Queen Charlottes, it will not be long before these tourists will have plenty te stay over for a few
days in each place and see more of the
country.
This is one of the phases of the development of this district that should be cultivated, as few districts offer such attractions to the tourist as does the Portland
Canal. Good roads however, are of prime
importance, and therefore just as essential
to the mining development of this district
as well as the tourist, as they are in any
other section of British Columbia.
To the Electors
a VOTE FOR BRADY is a vote to have
a Representative from Skeena in the
NEXT GOVERNMENT.
The Principle involved in this election
is that of SELF PROTECTION and
PRESERVATION.
The Liberal Party Has
Apparently No Policy!
The CONSERVATIVE PARTY is advo-
eating Protective Legislation that will
solve our Industrial and Economic problems, which are vital issues.
They protect our people against unemployment, preserve and make Our Country
a Great Industrial Nation.

We wish to compliment those progressive
citizens of Alice Arm composing the Alice Arm
Branch of the B.C.Chamber of Mines on the descriptive pamphlet of that diatrict and its possi-
bilities, which they are now circulating. It is a
concise, well arranged and artistically illustrated
pamphlet, giving a great deal of most usefui and
interesting information, reflecting gres��t credit
upon its originators. We have no hesitation in
recommending to our readers who are interested
in mining on this north coast to write the secretary for a copy of this illuminating booklet.
Great Britain gained her
Industrial Supremacy by em-
bargos and High Protective
Tariffs, maintaining it until
She Adopted free trade.
The United States, with no greater natural resources than Canada, became and is the greatest
industrial nation in the world by high protective
tariffs.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN said: "I do not know
what you mean by high protective tariffs, but I
do know that if we buy a machine made in a foreign country, we have the machine and they get
our money; but if we buy a machine made in our
own country, we have the machine and the money
too."
The Prosperity, High Wages, Ample Employment, and Opportunities created in the U. S. A.
by this policy have for years been the magnets
that have drawn millions of our native-born sons
and daughters to that Great Republic.
BRADY and the CONSERVATIVE
PARTY ask you to support the policy of
benefitting by the experiences of the above
mentioned nation.
A VOTE FOR BRADY is a vote to keep
our native-born sons and daughters in
Canada
A VOTE FOR BRADY is a vote to have
our natural resources manufactured in
Canada instead of abroad as now, thereby
increasing employment and prosperity.
A VOTE FOR BRADY is a vote for
CANADA and YOURSELF.
BRADY and the CONSERVATIVE
PARTY advocate a CUSTOMS SMELTER
for the NORTH COAST.

Why Home-brewed
Beer Can Be Bad
For Your Health
BREWING beer at home, a habit that has
become widespread in the United
States since prohibition deprived the people
of the right to purchase pure and healthful
beer legally and openly, presents difficulties and dangers of which those who
engage in it are rarely aware.
HOME-BREWED beer can be actually dangerous to those who drink it, for the home
brewer works by rule of thumb, perforce, and
usually has no acquaintance with or control over
the complex physical and chemical reactions that
take place in the brewing of beer. Pure beer can
only be made in a modern brewery by scientifically trained brewmasters who have at their disposal the most modern equipment and who are
bound by the most exacting standards.
THE same materials which, in a modern brewery, are
made into pure, healfhful beer, can become, in the
hands of a home brewer, a raw, incompletely fermented, indigestible and harmful mixture unfit for consumption. But where an established brewery uses only
the highest grade of material���malt and hops���tested for
purity, the home brewer is forced to purchase in stores
imported syrup concoctions of inferior malt and low-grade
hop extracts frequently blended with synthetic essences.
The product of such mixtures is always harmful to the
stomach and digestive system and dangerous to drink for
any length of time.
THE home brewer is hampered not only by lack of
knowledge of the science of brewing, but home
equipment dnes not include the elaborate plant necessary for prolonged sterilization and filtering to assure
a pure, healthful beer free from bacterial infection. In
beer that is the product of a perfectly equipped brewery
all fermentation is complete; in home-brewed beer fermentation continues, and continues after it is consumed,
it is really an explosive mixture, whether in your stomach
or in the bottle, as shown by the way in which bottles
explode and tops are blown off.
HOME-BREWED beers are usually higher ln alcoholic content than they should be. In the boers supplied by the
Amalgamated Breweries to the people of British Columbia
through licensed premises or through Government stores tha
alcoholic strength Is only 44 per cent., the most favorable
stremrth for tha stimulation of the stomach toward aiding
digestion. Home-browed beors also usually contain greater or
less percentages of deadly fusel oU, from whloh properly
brewed, stored and aged beers are free,
ANT physician can tell of ths dangers of homo-brewefi beer,
from which, happily, the people cf Brltlah Columbia are
free, for they have the privilege of obtaining pure, good bear
made by tha Amalgamated Breweries of British Columbia lu
p'ants that are equipped with every facility for tha brewing
of pure bear, perfectly flavored, woll matured and healthful.

CAPTAIN JOHN
IS BACK AGAIN
Captain John Irving of Victoria
who has been interested in mining in this camp ever since it was
a camp, arrived from the south
Tuesday and has gone up to the
Premier Extension with Hugh
B. McGuire. Since retiring from
the steamboat business Captain
John has devoted mueh of his
time to mining investigations,
and is considered an expert in
judging the value of mineral
properties. Fifty-two years ago
Captain John sailed the Glenora
to Alaska, and navigated this
ceast fer many years, eventually
selling out to the C.P.R. Reviewing his history one Might
gain the impression that he is
well along in years, but if so, he
does not show it.
Mapping the Naas
P. M. Moncton. B. C, L. S. of
Terrace, arrived on the Cardena
with his party who are employed
mapping the Naas Valley. They
have for the past two seasons
been working north from Terrace
Not being able to cross the Naas
and there being no trails in that
valley back of Stewart, they
came out and around by boat,
after having triangulated to the
mountains on this side of the
river, and will now work back
into Stewart from Meziadin lake,
finishing the season here. This
work is being done by the Provincial Government. It appears*
to be the intention to map the
country from the Skeena river
north to the Yukon boundary, a
section each year.
When you haye finished reading this paper, send it to a friend
who might be interested.
Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston & Co)
The continued spread of the
field for Portland Canal stocks is
being felt; this coupled with the
usual fall activity, promises much
higher prices in practically all
listed mining stocks. Reports
received from the southern brokers are to the ett**t .that after
the Dominion election is settled
the investing public will turn
more interestedly to mining
again.
Marmot Metals remains in
very strong demand, with little
stock available. The price on
this stoek is steadily advancing
and a twenty-cent market is
readily expected. It is expected
shortly that a full report of the
summer's operations will be made
public by the management.
The last call of 25 cents per
share on the Dunwell has been
made, and now Dunwell is in a
position to advance rapidly, and
much higher prices are expected
in the near future.
National Silver G.S. steadily
advanced and sold as high as 19
cents, with large buying orders
in the hands of nearly all brokers. This rise is put down to the
fact that Sebakwe is in heavy
demand and every 1000 shares
of National Silver GS carries 147
Sebakwe.
