Interesting Subjects Under
Consideration by Board
of Trade���Reports From
Delegate and Committee
Stewart as the logical port for
the Peace  River, was  brought
most forcibly to the attention of
the Associated Boards of Trade
in convention in North Vancouver last month by W. R. Smith,
delegate of the Stewart  Board,
according to a report and  newspaper clippings of the  proceedings read in the meeting of  the
local Board  last  Tuesday  evening.   It appears from the  report that while the whole of the
south is concentrating upon satisfactorily  solving the  present
P.G.E. problem, Mr Smith introduced an angle of the  situation
that created a great impression.
His solution would appear to be
pregnant   with   good  common
sense.   The giving  of  a  land
grant for the construction  of a
railway   from   Peace  River  to
Stewart - would  encourage  the
building of the iu��d  through   a
country of great potential wealth
thus stimulating settlement and
development,   creating  a  very
profitable business for  a north
and south line like the P. G. E.
This suggestion  even   placed a
new angle on, the solution of the
problems of B.C.'s pet railway.
Incorporation
The committee appointed  by
the   Board   to* investigate  the
question of village incorporation
njjidered the following report:
Vbur Incorporation Committee
beg to report that after considerable investigation, we find the
following:
That incorporation would not
necessarily increase taxation,
j That the Government tan be
expected to pay 60 per cent of
the cost of the upkeep of the
roadways of 6th and Brightwell
streets.
That the cost of overhead such
aa Clerk should not exceed $900
Per year; Commissioners $300
Per year; office rent, $400 per

That $500 per year could be
allocated to the-Fire Department
and $50 per year for street light-
inK; total $550.
That this will leave a maximum of some $1900 per.year for
other purposes.
That as most of tho sidewalks
have recently been renewed little
expenditure on these would be
""mediately necessary.

to the Hie-Hard Time Dance-
Thursday, Sept. 16, given by
S. B. B. Club.
The parade was  unique,   and
funnier than that.     Headed  by
Miss Kate Ryan,  garbed   as  a
Red Cross nurse and representing the Hospital  organizations,
the Moose  Legionaires,   including large delegations from   Ketchikan and Prince  Rupert,   put
on a show that sent the spectators  into  spasms  of  laughter,
while at the same  time  engendering a respect for the  Lodge
who  would  give  their  wholehearted help toward the support
of a worthy cause.
At Athletic Park the wrestling on horseback, which was an
innovation here, created considerable interest, also the pack-
horse race, tug of war and the
baseball game. In the tug of
war the team from the Dunwell
mine out-pulled the Services
Club and were in turn defeated
by the Premier huskies. Stewart won the baseball game from
Hyder by one run in the last
inning. Booth entertainments
of various kinds provided a variety to the amusements.
The dance in the Opera House,
Klondike camp in the  Services
Club Hall, and  appetizing  supper and hot-dog stand in a large
tent midway between, kept  the
crowd happy until 3 a.   m.     In
the   imitation   Klondike  Camp
were various games of  chance,
including such oldtime favorites
as roulette, craps and black-jack
where thousands of dollars in
perfectly good  phoney   money
were won and lost.

JUST  BY WAY OF COMPARISON
The Cripple Creek mining: district of
Colorado has been, and is now, for that
matter, a great mining camp. It is a
world-famous mining district. The big
mine of the camp is the Portland mine,
owned by an English syndicate, who paid
$10,000,000 for the property, buying from
Stratton, original locator of the claims,
and the discoverer of this mineral field.
The Mining Congress Journal is authority for the statement that the Portland
mine has been in production since 1892
and during that period up to the present
time has made a gross production of $55,-
000,000 and has paid dividends to shareholders in the amount of $11,000,000.   Assuredly, the Portland mine of the Cripple
Creek district of Colorado is a mighty fine
big property.    It has distinctly  "made
good" for the people who are mining it
and the shareholders have gotten their
money back and a great deal more, with
earnings assured for many years to come.
But let us compare the record of the
Cripple Creek mine with that of the Premier mine located in a practically unknown
and unsung mining district���the Portland
Canal camp, partly in Alaska and partly
in British Columbia.    The Premier mine
went into production in 1921 and in the
five years intervening has  paid  to the
shareholders almost ten million dollars in
dividends.
The Cripple Creek mining district has
been good, is good now, but the enormous
possibilities of the Portland Canal camp
make the Colorado camp sink into insigni-
cance beside it.
Col. Wm. T. Perkins, the well-known
former Klondiker and Nomeite, has mined in the Cripple Creek district and is now
concerned in the Portland Canal district.
He has just returned from a trip of in-

he Principle involved in this election
is that of SELF PROTECTION and
PRESERVATION.
The Liberal Party Has
Apparently No Policy!
The CONSERVATIVE PARTY is advocating 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.
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.

SELUKWE REPORT
FOUULY
The official progress report for
the month of July ofthe Selukwe
Gold Mining & Finance Co. Ltd..
and published in the London papers, has just been received here
It reads as follows:���
No. 3 level.���Drift 336 on "D"
ore body has been advanced a
further 30 ft. and a 20-ft crosscut driven. This work was all in
milling ore. Drift 336 has been
discontinued as the face is in the
granite dyke which was encountered in drift 334. Drift 334 has
been advanced another 120 ft.
and two 10-ft crosscuts were driven. The faee is still in granite
| (office note: cable since received
states now through the dvke.)
The "C" ore body has been located between the two dykes by a
20-ft. cross-cut driven in a N.W.
direction from drift 334���8 ft.
wide, good milling grade with
patches of high grade.     This is
an important development, as it
indicates that "C" ore body continues up to the granite dyke
(office note: since located on far
side of dyke,) thus having a total
proved length to date of 320 ft.
Diamond Drilling.���Three diamond drill holes driven in a north
westerly direction from drift 331.
No. 3 level, traced the vein matter of "C" ore body in a southwesterly direction 450 ft. past
the present limits of the tunnelling on this ore body. Two holes
showed only low scattered values, but one hole passed through
100 ft. of low value, containing
8 ft. of $20 ore. Several crosscuts are now being run from
drift 331, in a north-westerly direction, so as to enable this
ground being further drilled below No. 3 level from more suitable stations, and, to date, 70 ft.
of cross-cutting has been done.
No. 3 intermediate level ���The
raise from this level was contin
ued 25 ft. in high-grade ore,   of
the approximate  value of  $100
per toh.

Proper ageing
makes
healthful beer
A MONG the measures taken in the plants
%y\ ��f -**���-- Amalgamated Breweries to assure
that the beer made for the people of
British Columbia is of the purest and most
healthful character there is a factor not often
brought to the attention of the public.
That is proper ageing, under the most favorable
conditions known to the science of brewing.
The stability afforded the brewing industry in
British Columbia by the legal, above-board and
Government Controlled sale of beer, by the
glass in licensed premises and by the bottle
in Government Stores, affords the Amalgamated
Breweries an opportunity to maintain an ample
and sufficient reserve that is allowed to mature
slowly and naturally.
The ageing of beer in the plants of the Amalgamated
Breweries completes the physical and chemical processes
that the malt and hops undergo in the course of brewing
and is among the reasons why the people of British
Columbia are provided with beer of high quality.
Pure and healthful beer is the product of the finest
materials plus the utmost care, and most elaborate
and scientific equipment is required. In its making
it is absolutely sterilized, and prolonged filtering
leaves it crystal clear and a delight to the eye.
Then comes the ageing that removes every trace of
the rawness often found in beers that are too
"young," and that makes it bland and digestible���
really a pre-digested liquid food, high in nourishing
qualities.
The valuable sugars, proteins, mineral salts and organic
phosphorous compounds are united in close and homogenous union, and, most important of all, fermentation
is totally ended, leaving the alcoholic strength low���
4.25 per cent, as provided for by law���and just
sufficient to stimulate the digestive system in the most
favorable manner.
Visiters are welcome at all times to inspect the model plants of the
Vancouver Breweries Ltd., Rainier Brewing Co. of Canada Ltd.,
Westminster Brewery Ltd., Silver Sping Brewery Ltd., and the
Victoria Phocr.iz Brewing Co. Ltd., where the beer supplied to the
people cf British Columbia is made.
This advertisement is not published or displayed by the Liquor
Control Board or by the Government of British Columbia.
Intermediate level above No. 3
level.���A 20-ft. cross-cut from
raise 352 has cut "C" ore body
44 ft. above No. 3 level. Values
occur over a width of 15 ft, the
best being $22 across 5 ft. More
work will be done in this area
with a view to picking up high
grade.
Footages.���During the month
320 ft. of drifting, cross-cutting
and raising has been accomplished and 1230 ft. of diamond drilling. 130 tons of high grade of a
value of approximately $100 a
ton were bagged for shipment.
The diamond drilh'ng and tunnelling accomplished during the
month has given very satisfactory results. The drilling indicates
that further valuable ore shoots
will be found between our "C"
ore body and the Premier, probably below No. 3 level, and the
tunneling has not only increased
the known length of "C" and
"D" ore bodies, but has also cut
"C" ore body 44 ft. above No. 3
level.

EXHIBITION
Some wonderful exhibits of
farm and dairy products will be
shown at this exposition, which
will be held September 14th to
18th. One of the main features
will be a Grand Agricultural Exhibit from the Fraser Valley.
This display will be personally in
charge of Tom Reid, Reeve, and
Claire Lemax, Clerk of the Municipality of Surrey, both of
these men being experts in this
line. Besides being a wonderful
display, this feature will be of
unlimited educational value to
the people of the north.
Election results will be announced to the public on Tuesday evening, the opening night
of the fair, by special leased wire
and operator, in the Exhibition
building.
There will be a six-round bout
between Joe Manilla of Ketchikan, Alaska, and Charlie Bellan-
ger, of Victoria, B.C., which promises to be one of the most exciting bouts ever put on in the
north. There will also be three
preliminary bouts; the first between two local men, Henry Nelson and Ed Saunders; the second
between Young Alberto, of San
Francisco and Dido Gurvich of
Prince Rupert, and the third between Jack Burns, Aberdeen,
Washington, and Jack Hughes,
Prince Rupert.
Arrangements have been made
for two baseball games between
Ketchikan and Prince Rupert for
the championship of the north.
Music will be furnished by the
famous Rainbow Orchestra ef
Calgary, Alberta, the Prince Ru
pert Boys Band, the Kincolith
Silver Band and the Greenville
Concert Band.
On Thursday evening the Eagles and Elks Lodges from Ketchikan will put en a Midnight Frolic in the Westholme Theatre.
This will be worth seeing, This
show was put on by the same
company in Ketchikan for two
nights to crowded houses.
Grand Masquerade Ball will
be held Friday evening.
Saturday is to be "Indian Day"
which will open with a big parade, followed by field sports,
championship baseball and football, and a dance in the evening.
The sports will be confined strictly to natives.
With a Grand Concert by the
Greenville Concert Band in the
Westholme Theatre Sunday eve*
ning, September 19th, the Fair
will be brought to a close.

Local Stocks
(By H. W.M.Rolsto* A Co)
The most marked feature of
the week's trading was the sudden drop recorded in Dunwell,
which stock for no apparent reason dropped some 50 points.
With heavy sales being recorded,
it is expected that the present
low levels wilt not last long. The
final call of 25 cents per share
has been made on the Dunwell
stock. It is reported from authentic sources that the Dunwell
is amply financed to complete
the program laid out, which ultimate plan is to bring the mine
to a productive basis.
It has been specially noted
this summer that numerous large
operating companies have had
their representatives looking
over the district and it is expected that before snow flies information will be made public to
the effect that some of the operating companies have become
financially interested in the
camp.

Out in Point Grey, Vancouver, are
two healthy specimens of boy life.
They get porridge aplenty each morning, but they will not eat it unless they
have Pacific Milk. Their mother is
quite proud of the fact that they can
tell if she puts any other kind of canned milk on the cereal. She tried
three different times.
