PETITION FOR
INCORPORATION
Unanimous Assent Given at
Citizens' Meeting to Steps
Toward Progress for the
Town of Stewart
The second meeting called for
the purpose of discussing incorporation was held in Moose
Hall last Tuesday evening, W.C.
Cameron again occupying the
chair and G.C.Andrew acting as
secretary. The Board of Trade
Incorporation Committee reported that they had wired for replies to questions asked at the
last meeting, and read the following letter:
Inspector Explains
Victoria, October 18, 1926.
The Secretary, Board  of Trade
Incorporation Committee,
Stewart, B.C.
Dear Sir:���
1 have received your
telegram of October 15th.
License Fees���A Municipality
has full control of the imposition
of licenses within their territory,
including the regulation of the
amount payable in respect of
each business. They have also
power to impose a tax of the nature of a license fee upon Banks
doing business within the Municipality.
Real Property���In the case
of a Village Municipality the
power to tax real property is
limited to raising of the amounts
used for general purposes; the
Provincial Government retaining
the right to make an additional
levy for the same real property
for school purposes. Except for
school purposes the Provincial
Government would make no further levy on the real property.
Personal Property-There
is no municipal tax upon personal
property in this Province.
Cost of Incorporation���Up
to the present the cost of incorporation of Village Municipalities has been practically Nil. The
cost of publishing the Letters
Patent is the only official charge.
The charges immediately following incorporation would be those
involved in providing for the
first election and also providing
the necessary stationery and
equipment to start work.
Limitation of Tax Rate���
UuqueBtionably if vou were incorporating as a Village the Letters Patent could provide that
the taxation would not exceed
ten mills except by a vote of the
ratepayers, although I have not
heretofore seen any example of
limitations of this kind in Letters
Patent. I do not, however, know
that there would be any serious
objection to it.

ORE SHIPMENTS
FROM J MINES
The oreship Mogul last week
took out 4970 sacks, approximately 230 tons, of B. C. Silver
high-grade ore, destined to a
smelter in the United States.
This will bring the total shipments for the year to date up te
about 710 tons.
The Cardena last Monday
night took out 630 sacks, approximately 30 tons, of ore from
the Prosperity, owned by Jancowski, Davis and Watland and
located in the Marmot river section. The ore, with silver at 60
cents, assays on an average $350
per ton. Besides the Bilver values it carries 35 per cent lead
and 12 per cent zinc. This ore
is consigned to Trail smelter.
On the last trip of the American stea.-ner Oregon, 49 tons of
concentrates were shipped from
the Riverside mine, which is 7
miles from Hyder in the Salmon
riyer valley.
INDEPENDENCE
DEALRATIFIED
The shareholders' meeting
held in Victoria yesterday by
the Independence company endorsed the contract made by S.
P. Fitzgerald for the sale of control of the property to Charles
Durrwachter and associates and
the deal has been closed, according to a telegram received today
by Jack Fitzgerald,
incorporated as a Village the
Municipality would not have any
authority to deal with this question.
With reference to the receipts
from the liquor profits and pari
mutuel, I have not the definite
figures per capita for last year
but expect to have them in a day
or so and will write you further.
Robert Baird,
Inspector of Municipalities.
Will Prepare Petition
This letter, in conjunction with
the information given at the previous meeting apparently cleared
up the situation, and P. S. Jack
seconded by H.P.Gibson, moved
that the present committee carry
on as outlined by the Village
Municipalities Att, prepare a
petition and circulate it for the
signatures of the residents of
the town; the committee to have
power to increase its number as
required. The motion carried
without a dissenting vote.
A number of matters in regard
to the effects of incorporation,
which were freely discussed at
the previous meeting and have
been publishes" from time to time
were again threshed over.
O. B. Bush left for Vancouver
Sunday.
Provincial Constable Potterton
left for Rupert Monday night on
official business.
T. J. Shenton, provincial mine
inspector for this district, arrived from Rupert Monday night
Gerald Service, of the Bank of
Montreal staff, returned Monday night from a vacation visit
in Vancouver.
Mrs L. Jesson arrived from
Vancouver Saturday to join her
husband, managing director of
Boyles Bros., the diamond drill
contractors.
'Twould by well for residents
to keep their eyes peeled next
Sunday night. Hallowe'n is an
excuse for mischief���or used to
be when we were all kids.      ���-
Victor Durant, famous all over
the north for more than quarter
of a century as a violinist of rare
talent, returned from the Bouth
Monday night after an absence
of two years. There are many
residents of the district who appreciate real music and who wiU
be glad to learn that "Vic" expects to sojourn here for awhile.
E.A.Haggen, consulting engineer, and Gerald Upton, secretary-treasurer, of the Albany
mining company, arrived from
Vaneouver Sunday, accompanied
by A. Albreight of Geneva, who
is one of a group of Swiss capitalists interested in the property. They visited the Albany,
which is easily reached, and left
for the south Monday night.
Selling Stewart Lots
The Stewart Investment Co.
Ltd. is a newly incorporated company with its head offices in Vancouver. While little is known
here as to its personnel, a eopy
of its first circular has arrived
in town advertising the possibilities of this district and offering
for sale town lots on what is locally known as the Mann town-
site, situated just across the railway track east of the main town-
site. Lots are offered on very
attractive terms at from $95 to
$195 per lot.
Cheap Life Insurance
W.C.Grove, organizer for the
"Family Beneficiary Society," is
spending the week in Stewart in
the interests, of the society,
which is formed on the club principle with 2500 members and is
said to be the simplest and most
economical form of pure protection life insurance at cost. The
plan has been in operation for
many years in B. C. and has
given great satisfaction, thare
being at present 12 such clubs in
this province. H. D. Rochfort
has been appointed local agent.
C. W. Magee left for Rupert
last Sunday.
Mrs Harry Tanner left for Seattle last Sunday.
Jas Comer left Monday night
for a visit in Rupert.
H. C. Magee, "Daddy of the
Marmot section," left Sunday
for his home in Vancouver.
Mrs Dale L. Pitt left Monday
night to visit her daughter Elizabeth, who is attending school
in Rupert.
Miss E. Magar, assistant to
Mining Recorder Scarlett during
the past two summers, left last
Monday night for her home in
Port Simpson.
In order to clear up any misunderstanding, F.E. Gigot wishes it clearly understood that in
the sale of his insurance business to H.W.M. Rolston. the sale
affected only his accident and
fire business, and not his life
insurance. This he retains, and
will continue as before.
Mrs Bert F. Smith of Premier
returned Sunday from a visit to
her parents in Birtle, Man. She
was accompanied from Rupert
by Miss Caldwell who, it will
be remembered, broke an ankle
last spring while on a hike from
Premier to the Big Missouri.
Miss Caldwell returned south on
the same boat.
W. Scott and Chas. Ellacott,
who left recently for the head of
the Unuk river for a winter's
trapping, returned this week.
Crawford's pack train took them
to the head of Tide lake with
1400 pounds of supplies, which
they rafted to the foot of the
lake and then started to backpack across the summit to the
Unuk. The weather waa too
tough however, so they cached
the outfit and came out. Scott
will return to that district when
the traveling is better, and if he
goes alone figures on staying in
a year, trapping and prospecting
Work on Similkameen
The Prudential Trust Company have found very sutisfaetory
values in both gold and platinum
test holes sunk near the bank
of the Similkameen river. The
gold is very coarse and nuggety.
The company has now installed
a camp and water supply and is
sinking test holes on the high
bench near the upper end of the
holdings. They have been using
a small Patter Oil Engine with
a centrifegal pump on this property and have had most satisfactory results from the economic
point of view. Some black sand
concentrate assayed $1946 gold,
$1278.20 platinum and $5.40 iridium per ton after visible gold
had been removed.
MISS FRASER
NOWA BRIDE
From the heme of her aunt,
Mrs John O'Driscol, Vancouver,
Miss Mamie V. Fraser. only
daughter of Mr and Mrs
George Fraser of Stewart, was
united in marriage with Mr Ed

Church, Vancouver, on the morning of October 28th, leaving
shortly afterwards by motor on
a honeymoon trip in the south.
Both the bride and groom are
well known locally, where they
have many friends, all of whom
wish them every happiness.
JUNEAU, ALASKA
BIG EXPLOSION
Juneau, Oct. 28���An explosion
said to be caused by dynamite
wrecked a bakery on Main street
Tuesday night and severely damaged a jewelry store. It is declared that explosives were placed under the floor of the bakery
building, 50 feet from a theatre
in which a political rally was being held. Police are of the opinion that the detonation was planned to occur during the meeting.
Jewelry was scattered for fifty
feet and pieces of wood from the
bakery floor were blown through
the roof.
JOS. CHRISTIAN
DIES ATPREMIER
Joseph W, Christian, who has
been employed at the Premier
for the past five years, was found
dead in his bed last Sunday morning, the cause being pronounced
as heart failure, by Dr. Carson,
of Premier.
Deceased, who was about 60
years old, was well known
throughout the district and had
many friends. He leaves a
daughter, Mrs Middleton, of
Houston, and several other children, whose addresses are unknown here.
The funeral services were held
Thursday afternoon, interment
being in the Hyder cemetery.
H. F. Garden left for Vancouver Suuday, having finished his
surveying here for this season.
A two-drum gas hoist on
wheels, and a gravel skip arrived
Sunday for the Public Works.
TRAIL BLAZERS
HAVERETURNED
Tom McLean, who, with Tim
Williams and Alex Mclnnes left
Stewart Sept. 26 to reconnoiter
a trail route from here to the
Telegraph trail, the construction
of wh<ch would make Stewart
the winter outlet for the Telegraph Creek and Dease Lake
districts, instead of the present
circuitous route via Atlin, returned this week.
They report that they reached
the Telegraph trail between the
9th and 10th cabins, and surveyed a trail back from that point.
No difficulties were encountered,
it being a very easy country
through which to put a trail.
The greatest difficulty would be
experienced getting over the
Bear river summit. The present
route would be followed to the
mouth of Hanna river, on Mes-
iadin lake.
About 60 miles of new trail
would be required from Hanna
river, crossing in the still water
at the outlet of Bowser lake,
where a canoe ferry could be
provided, thence over to the Bell
Irving river and up its east bank
to the Telegraph trail.   .
This entire route would be in a
nice timbered country, with little
work necessary, other than cutting brush. The total distance
from Stewart to the Telegraph
trail is in the neighborhood of 100
miles.
Such a trail would give access
to the entire mineral belt that is
known to exist between here and
the Stikine river, and if built
would without doubt open a vast
new country, with big mineral
possibilities, to prospectors.
Armistice Day Observance
In accordance with their usual
custom, the United Services Club
will observe Armistice Day, Nov.
11, by holding a dance in the
evening and decorating cars and
pedestrians throughout the day
with poppies, which are made
by soldiers who are confined to
hospitals through incapacities received while in service and to
whom the receipts from sales
are sent.
C.M.Adam has moved his taxi
office from the Marmot Hotel
building to the office recently
occupied by F.E.Gigot, opposite
the Portoffice. The day and
night, summer and winter taxi
service.

THE SILVER SITUATION
Engineering and Mining Journal is
net prophesying that silver is going to
range between 55 and 60e. per oz. daring
the next year or the next few years. The
average may be higher; and it is possible
that it will be lower. Earnings, particularly of the "straight" silver producers,
necessarily are affected directly by the
price of silver; but no serious difference
in the scale of mining operations is to be
anticipated unless the price drops still farther and stays down.
Charles S. Herzig, editor of the Gold-
field News, and a recognized authority,
sees little cause for worry on the part ef
silver producers.   He says:
A study of the report of the Indian
Currency Commission, which proposes to
place India on a gold basis, tends to remove a large part of the apprehension
which pervades the ranks of silver producers. The brief statement recently carried in the press dispatches indicated that
the Government of India would liquidate
400,000,000 ounces of silver in the next 10
Bond Interest

in bonds will then earn interest for you.

B. T. CROSBY, Manager *
BANK QF MONTREAL
Established i8i7
years.
This is far from being the fact.
While it is true that the proposed
adoption of the gold standard by the Government of India is regarded as a bearish
factor in the silver market, there is considerable te be said on the other side.
The simple native of India is in the
habit ef using hard money, and it will be
extremely difficult to change age-long customs in the course of a few years, especially as the silver money is in smaller units
and must be used for every day trading
requirements.
Furthermore, the psychology of the
people, their habits, economic status and
living standards give rise to the belief that
the Far East will take as much silver in
the future as in the past.
The recent decline in the price of silver is not wholly due to the recommendations of the Indian Currency Commission.
The movement of prices downward has
been heavily influenced by sales en account
of China, where speculation in the metal
has been in progress. The political and
economical unsettlements in China have
militated against an orderly consumption
of silver, despite the fact that China has
been a strong supporter of the market for
more than a year. Unfavorable economic
conditions in Europe have demoralized
European ourrency and also contributed
to the decline	
The Indian Government holds 500,000,-
000 ounces of silver reserve against the
present note issue. The plans of the Currency Commission would authorize the
disposal of this silver reserve, at the discretion of the new bank, within 10 years.
This is the cloud hanging over the
silver market.
India ordinarily consumes
about 100,000.000 ounces Qf silver a year. The world's production in 1925 approximated 230,-
000,000 ounces of new silver.
Ihese figures are for purely commercial consumption of silver in
India and do not include government purchases, as the Indian
Government has not been in the
market for silver since 1920.
The Indian Government would
under no circumstances dispose
of all of its silver holdings, as at
least 150,000,000 ounces would
be held by the proposed new central bank as a silver reserve to
redeem outstanding rupee notes.
It is by no means certain that
any part of the reserve silver
will be disposed of. The situa
tion, so far as the government is
concerned, will be as it has been
since 1920.
Another thing which it is well
to remember is that India is enjoying a steady economic and social development, and what is
still more important, the agelong habit of the people to acquire and hoard silver. The people might prefer gold to silver,
even for purposes of hoarding it.
but only the very wealthy can
afford to acquire gold for any
purpose. Silver must continue
to be the metal in use among the
common people.
It therefore follows as a  natural consequence that the  new
paper gold rupee will be confined

LONDOHLETTEn
Editor,
Portland Canal NewB:���
You might be interested to
know how I found mining investments in London.
Notwithstanding the coal strike
which has crippled industries
and caused great discomfort and
inconvenience, people are investing heavily in mines, chiefly in
tin mines of foreign countries,
and gold and lead mines of
Africa.
There is a big boem on in tin
and tin shares. Numerous companies have been formed, absorbing millions of pounds in tin
speculation. Tin has reached a
price of $1750 per ton. This tin
boom is parallel with the rubber
boom of last year in magnitude.
There are millions of pounds
for mining speculation in England, if you can show prospects
for a reasonable return for the
money. If the product to be
speculated in is a popular one,
all the better, such as tin and
rubber. Silver is not popular
just now, awing to the tremendous fall in price, but it will
come back.
Africa seems to be the most
popular mining field for English
speculators.   More attention  is
given to Africa than Australia
or Canada. As for Britisu Columbia mining, hardly anything
is known about it. Except for
Selukwe and Sebakwe, there
would be almost total ignorance
among Stock Exchange brokers
and financiers of the importance
of British Columbia, as these
companies' shares have been receiving some attention owing to
the sharp advances made from
the developments of B. C. Silver
and National Silver. Selukwe
is a 2s 6d share, and it has risen
to 13s 9d. or 5i times par value.
Sebakwe is also a 2s 6d share,
and it commands a premium of
50 per cent of par value.
We want, in London, some
publicity work done by the Agent
General of B.C., such as is being
done by the Agent General for
Ontario. The latter province
has many mining stocks listed on
London Exchange, British Columbia none. There should be a
Bureau of Mines for B. C. in
London doing publicity work,
and the Province must display
its wares of mineral to the financiers to attract capital The Province can show a high return for
the capital that has been invested for exploitation, and that is
all that is required to satisfy the
capitalists.
In an article published in the
The sale of
Beer by the
glass Vindicated
(T*9 HE Government Control of beer sales to the
Ll/ people  of  British   Columbia  in  licensed
premises has been vindicated by the orderly
manner in which these premises are conducted.
These quiet and comfortable establishments
i prove that the open and above-board sale of
pure beer has in great measure ended the evils
attending the illicit sale of strong drink. They
have proved that the self respect and good
behavior of the people of British Columbia are
more to be depended on than the opinions of
those who wish to prevent the people from
having any beer at all.
You may find citizens enjoying a healthful and
invigorating glass of beer in the quiet and ease
that the well-to-do have in their clubs. Licensed
premises in the colder winter months are more
than ever the working man's club, where he finds
the company and comfort that is his right.
The supervision and regulation of licensed premises
by the Government is a guarantee that the
excellent conditions under which beer is sold shall
continue. Efficient Government Inspectors see not
only that such licensed premises are operated in a
strictly sanitary manner. They look for a high
standard of conduct.
The purity and wholesomeness of all beers
served���supplied by the Amalgamated Breweries of British Columbia���is guaranteed by
the frequent and strict analyses to which they
are subjected by the Government. In the
present administration of Beer Parlors the
interests of the public are completely protected.
Amalgamated Breweries of British Columbia, In Which are
associated Vancouver Breweries Ltd., Rainier Brewing Co. of
Canada Ltd., Westminster Brewery Ltd., Silver Sprint Brewery Ltd.,
Victoria Phoenix Brewing Co. Ltd.

"Mining World and Engineering
Record" October 1st. I tried to
show London mining investors
the opportunities they were losing, while our American friends
were reaping a harvest from our
fields.
I have attained a certain measure of success is my mission to
London, and will return as soon
as financial arrangements in negotiation are completed. In the
meantime I am in a position to
obtain capital for any mining
companies in Portland Canal that
have done a fair amount of development work showing good
results, and requiring more funds
to continue, since I have got in
touch with big financiers searching for new fields for investment
of surplus funds. If these will
communicate with me, they will
receieve attention.

THE SILVER SITUATION
(Continued from Page 2)
to the merchant   and wealthy
classes.   The great mass of the
population rarely ever sees a rupee, as hand to hand money. The
most that they can hope for is a
few annas or pies���the subdivisions of the rupee, one rupee being equal to 16 annas,  and  one
anna being equal to 12 pies,   so
that there are 192  pies  to  the
rupee.   (A rupee is about 36c.)
The pie is a eoin   of common
circulation  among  the   largest
part of the  Indian   population.
India has a population of 317,000-
000 and statistics indicate  that
the per capita income is a  little
more than $10, although in some
districts it reaches as high as $30
to $35 per head.
The government's objectives
are lauadble, but tbe precious
value of silver will never be lost
to India, so that in the long view
tho market may be expected to
come back. Another thing that
may be depended on is that the
Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolaton A Co)
The usual fall activity in mining stock is betoming very notici ble and the demand for local
issues is very much in evidence,
During the past few weeks
there have been various rumors
in connection with the price of
silver, which in a way was reflecting on the stock market,
especially stocks in silver-lead
properties. There has been a
big drop in silver, but nothing
to worry about
It has been very interesting to
note the steady advance in Dunwell, which has risen some 20
points during the past week and
is very much in demand at present prices.
It is rumored that owing to the
remarkable ore bodies being exposed on the Marmot Metals the
management intend to not allow
any further issue to be placed on
the market under a very big advance. It is believed that at the
general meeting of the company
Indian Government will not de-Ito be called shortly it  is  to   be
press the price of silver bv dumping it on the market, as this
would check confidence in the
money and frustrate all efforts
to replace gold for silver.
It may be taken for granted
that the new banking project
will do everything possible, not
only to keep rupee exchange
stable with regard to foreign
gold, but keep the prices of silver at as near a fixed level as
possible in India itself with reference to its gold and gold certificates. In all of this there is
reason for a feeling of hopefulness on the part of the silver
producers.

steady bid is appearing for  this
