A Merry Christmas
and
A Happy New Year
This is the time of year when everyone goes around shout-
*   ing to everyone else, (even without the formality of an
introduction) "Merry Christmis and Happy New Year."
There are those who say that the reiteration of these
phrases is simply a parrot-like repetition of something that
has been learned by rote, and shows brainlessness on the
part of those who give voice to the formula. The prisoner
in jail, for instance, who is.wished a Merry Christmas by his
warden, has doubt as to the sincerity of the greeting, and
decries the lack of tact whjch the warden displays under
the circumstances. These are the misanthropists of the
world.
But the habit has become so wide-spread that it is ingrown. It is more than a habit, too. There is undoubtedly
in the human race an inherent quality of kindliness that
springs spontaneously to the fore when .the annual holiday season comes 'round, and finds visible outlet in
the form of gifts, and vocal in naturally inherent expressions of goodwill.
The Portland Canal News is thankful for the support accorded it, which, we believe, is the inevitible reward for an
honest endeavor to give tbe best service possible in the
field which this paper represents. So we cheerfully and
conscientiously can wish all of our readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

Perhaps many of the.ia go to

before them. Perhaps, like Ba-

To such as these I would say:

by hundreds of other human butterflies, and-play golf.
But to the unspoiled human-

I would say "Come to British

Miss Kate Brown, appearing in
the person of J.W.Wilson. Both

tournaments were presented to
the winners by Mrs H. D. Rochfort, wife of the Club's president.

CHRISTMAS IS
HERE AGAIN
The coming generation of
Stewart, together with most of
the adult population made a happy noisy crowd at the Service
Club Thursday night when the
annual Christmas treat was given under the auspices of the local Moose.
Of course the main event of
the evening was the appearance
of Santa, represented by J. H.
Wilson, who appeared at 9 o clock
heralded by the jingle of his
sleigh bells. He proceeded at once
to the gaily trimmed and lighted
tree, where he distributed gifts
to 83 kiddies, seven of whom
were from Marmot and Dunwell.
Santa was ably seconded by the
Rev. A.W.R.Ashley, G.W.Smith
and P.S.Jack. The gifts were
not all for the youngsters however. To give an example���for
reasons best known to themselves
and their friends Rev. Mr Ashley was presented with two celluloid babies enshrined in a box
of cotton wool, and Ernie Armstrong was the amused recipient
of a spotted gee-gee on wheels.
The evening was made still
more pleasureable for all by a
program of games and dances,
Mrs W. Jancowski being at the
piano and J. P. Scarlett playing
the violin. The various committees are to be congratulated for
the efforts they have made in
adding to the "pleasure _of the
Christmas season.

RETURNS FROM
A NEW MINE
Owners o{ Prosperity Get
Fat Check From Smelter
For a Small Shipment of
Surface Ore
A check fo; $6499.46 was split
five ways this week here among
the owners of the Prosperity
group of claims oh Marmot river
being the returns from the Trail
Smelter for a shipment of ore
made late in the fall. The shipment consisted of 632 sacks,
weighing 60,635 pounds gross,
and 58,088 pounds when the 4.2
per cent moisture had h^en deducted by the smelter.
Two sticks of dynamite were
used in getting out this shipment. Not two boxes, or two
tons, but two whole sticks! And
between 20 and 30 more tons of
ore were left in the cut because
there were not enough pack
horses available to take it out
They were running a race with
Old Winter to get Porter Idaho
ore down, for which a contract^
had been made.
The owners of the property
are Eli Watland, Fred Jancowski
Wm. Jancowski, G.D. Davis and
George Mehlfeld.
Smelter assays give .08 oz. in
gold, 431.55 oz. silver, 29.95 per
cent lead, 10.45 per cent zinc,
11.1 per cent sulphur, 31.4 per
cent silica, 4 per cent iron
and a trace of lime.
This is the highest-grade shipment ever sent out of this camp,
with the exception of 50 tons
once shipped by the Premier on
the Prince John, which is said to
have run $12,000 to the ton.

WHAT A MESS!
Four of Stewart's young folks
who are pursuing in Vancouver
their search for knowledge, returned Monday night for the
winter Holidays. They are Miss
Mabel and Stavely Mellor, Miss
Cherry Campbell and Miss Muriel
Crawford. Miss Helen Crawford, who is attending Columbia
University in New Westminster,
was busy with the measles and
could not come.
When Wm. Noble  came  into
the kitchen after  dumping  the
ashes   Wednesday   morning  he
was greeted by an   explosion   in
the range.   A few seconds  later
and he might have been   injured
by pieces of the stove that  flew
all over the room.   What caused
the explosion is  undetermined,
but it is likely that the pipe  became frozen  between   the  hot
water jacket and the tank.    D.
W. McLeman, who occupies  the
house with Mr Noble, had gone
up to his store, but is a considerable loser in damaged  clothing.
Hot coals were  thrown around
the kitchen and burned holes in
the linoleum.   The water  tanks
squirted   all   over  everything,
soot flew, and altogether quite a
mess was made.   The house  be

THE PROSPECTOR
(Engineering and. Mining Journal)
A recent article in a magazine of the
'���popular-intellectual" type describes the
residual Western prospector. He is described as a tough, hardy old specimen,
who in the past has promptly wasted on
dissipation of the crudest sort any windfall of funds which has come to him, and
who survives in the hope of another lump
of cash, so that he eaa dispose of it in a
similar roistering manner. Such types no
doubt exist���but they do not typify the
average prospector, who no doubt is passing away in the United States.
The recollection of a long personal
acquaintence with prospectors pictures
them as a wonderfully varied and interesting class���as fine and lovable a group,
perhaps, as one can find. They were gathered from every walk in life���some highly
eduoated, with a past record of a busy life
in cities; some with no education���past
farmers, or sailors, or trappers. Many
were philosophers���deep and balanced
thinkers, and appreciative readers of literature and science. As a class they were
competent and courageous, and as a class
most hospitable and free-handed. If they
were disposed, in case of stress, to rely for
protection and their rights on the persua-
sivepowerofa rifle���rarely used except
as a gesture���it was because they lived so
long in places where the rifle was their
only protection against wrong and violence, not in the least because they were
other than most peaceably-minded.
Prospectors as a rule loved the life-
its peace, its freedom, its adventure,
its unlimited hopes. But if they struck
it rich, most of them were prudent, and
retained their prosperity, and became
bankers, or ranchers, or real-estate operators, or financiers���take it all in all, a
fine breed. Their tendency to "cut loose"
in town, so much exaggerated by the article referred to in the beginning, was perhaps that of the average citizen of all
walks of life. Their normal life was cooking serenely in their log cabins; loading
their burros with drills and powder; and
pounding the drills into the heart of the
mountains day in -and day out, week in
and week out, so long as the grub lasted.
The race is not dead���there are plenty
of them yet. Many of them, when there
is nothing else to do, sit down and write
a tetter to the Editor; and no class of correspondence brings more cheer and interest.
gineering and Mining Journal of Oct. 16,
1926, page 601. I wish I knew as much
about prospectors as that guy in the "popular-intellectual magazine." He thinks
all prospectors are bums. I don't know
the taste of whiskey or tobacco. I was
born and raised in the Siskiyou Mountains, and worked in the mines, and prospected all my life, and am 65 years old.
I never went te school, there was no
sort of school up there when I was a boy.
I work for myself and live in my own log cabin,
and I will bet that the fellow who wrote that article works for wages and pays rent to a landlord.
I co to town only when I need grub. There is
plenty of game and trout where my claim is. Last
spring and summer while the snow water lasted I
cleaned up $125 in gold, $30 in platinum and three
small diamonds, one weighing a carat, one of li
carats, and a stone weighing 2J carats. One was
canary yellow and two were blue white. I got
$125 for the diamonds. Besides I trapped twe
marten, 12 mink and one black bear pelt. I am
waiting for the fall and winter rain, ��� Stanley

CANADA NEEDS PUBLICITY
Sir Alfred Mond, a well-known British capitalist and the holder of many Canadian interests,
stated that Canada's greatest need abroad is pub*
licity. He tells of leading and supposedly well
informed British capitalists who do not even know
that some of our greatest mines have names. Mineral revenues are growing each year but are still
a small portion of the production of the country.
To bring the mining industry into greater production capital investments are necessary. It is stated that the opportunities for investment in this
field must be placed before outside capital. Canada could, however, finance all necessary development if the'Canadian people possessed faith in
themselves and their country. The earning power
of the people who v>��*u^j. *.k* *.ut-.*v u��.�� ra
greater than ever in history. The money is in the
country and could be put to work if the owners
realized the opportunities their country offers. ���

B.C. AND ALASKA
ARE BECKONING
(Continued from Page 1)
mountains back of Stewart and
Hyder, Alaska.
Alaska���the land of mystery
and romance!���Who, with an
ounce of imagination, has not
longed for a visit to this great
territory, still so thoroughly misunderstood, but yet fast becoming one of the richest possessions of the American nation?
And where can a visitor so easily set his foot on this famed soil
and amid such surroundings as
at the head of Portland Canal?
I am boosting for this part of
Alaska because the Portland
Canal district embraces the mining territory on both sides of the
International boundary line. The
incomparable mineral zones, that
are already producing millions
for the enhancement of the
world's new wealth, know ho
boundary line, no more than do
the bears and prospectors that
roam over them.
The "Inside Passage," a water
course unique in that it has no
counterpart on the globe, has
been described by many  writers
whose flow of language and descriptive powers are more  voluble than mine,   but  too  much
cannot be said about it, for  the
subject cannot be overdone. Five
hundred miles of a smooth water
way from Vancouver  to  Prince
Rupert, (with two short  breaks
where one might just possibly be
shaken up a bit,   across  Queen
Charlotte and Mill bank Sounds,)
flanked on both sides by  mountain scenery that will live afterwards in dreams when once observed, may be covered in comfort and convenience by  three
steamship lines whose service  is
unexcelled.   The 120 miles more
to Stewart, up the Portland Canal, a deep, narrow fiord lying between gigantic mountains, whose
beauty and  grandeur  increases
as the steamship proceeds northward.   The peaks wear crowns
of eternal   snow,   and  between
them may be seen tongues  of
glaciers creeping through   from
the parent ice-bodies that lie behind the ranges.   Foaming cataracts   abound,  and  here and
there a mountain stream  roars
down to the sea.
At Stewart or Hyder autos
may be secured to take the visitor direct to some of the more
important mines, and   within  a
few miles of glaciers which may
be reached on foot or horse-back
with no special effort, and once
on the ice, the visitor may go as
far as he likes. He may become
familiar with a wonder of nature
that he has always contemplated
with a feeling of awe. If he has
a little of the primitive in him,
(and who has not?) he may enjoy making camp in the hills and
working around the cliffs, and
fraternizing with the bears and
mountain goats; and if he has a
week or two of this he may perhaps stumble onto the outcrop of
a mineral vein that will pay his
expenses for many trips to other
parts of the world.
In any event he will see something new; he will experience
sensations unexpected but delightful; he will commune with
Nature at her best, unspoiled by
the hand of man, and he will
meet an unstinted hospitality
such as is found only in new
countries where the sordid strife
of the older sections has not yet
spread its blight
But he will find no golf links
���yet.

He Told Them
"When I was a little boy"
sweetly piped the hard-boiled
sergeant, "I had a set of wooden
soldiers. One day I lost those
soldiers and I cried very much.
But my mother said: 'Never mind
Johnny, some day you will get
your wooden soldiers back.' And
believe me,.you bunch of wooden
headed dumbbells, that day has
come.*'
Sergeant (to rookie) ���"If yon
have the east on your right hand
and the west on your left hand,
what have yoa back of you?"
Rookie-"My knapsack."
The bravest man in the world
is a bachelor serving as a judge

The usual downward trend of
stocks that always occurs daring
tbe Christmas season failed to
materialize thia year, and week
by week the local market is booming stronger.
The cause for this is credited
to the fact that the development
done lsst year without doubt
showed up some of tho most remarkable ore bodies, and it can
be safely aaid that from 6 to 7
prospects entered the mine class
and it can be further said that
at least three of these will bs in
the shipping class during 1917,
Another feature is ths number
of large operating companies
that are becoming interested in
the camp, and plenty of eapital
ia available for prospects of
merit
The main stoek of last week
was Porter Idaho, which reached
the highest levels for some time,
though it slackened off during
tile latter part of tho week under
h��ivy selling. As hss been forecasted, great activity is expected in tho Marmot River stocks.
Marmot Metals remained
steady with little stock changing
heads. There only being some
800,000 shares of this stock on
the open market, very little buying quickly enhances the price.
Dunwell is inactive with very
few shares changing hands. It
appears aa if the public are waiting to see the mill in active operation before turning to thja

It has been noticeable the past
few days that Lakeview Is com
ing Into interest again. A number of buying orders have been
received. It would not take
much buying to place this stock
at a higher level.
The local representative of the
Stewart Central Mines of Bitter
creek has been notified that a
program of active development
on this property is being planned
for next year. Very .little of this
stock is held held locally.
