To Telegraph Creek, Is
Board of Trade Report
The regular meeting of the
Board of Trade Tuesday evening
dealt with a very heavy agenda,
one of the most important items
being the trail to Telegraph
Creek, in connection with which
a letter was read from the Minister of Mines wherein he pointed out that his Department could
deal only with matters pertaining to mining; but realizing that
such a trail weuld possibly tend
to opening up for prospecting a
very large territory now impossible of reasonable access, he is
instructing that a reconnaisance
be made from Meziadin lake to
Bowser lake, and from there up
the west side of Bell Irving river
to the telegraph trail. Acting
upon this letter a committee consisting of the secretary, John
Stewart, and H. W. M. Rolston
was appointed to follow  up  the
matter with a letter to the Minister of Public Works, the Post
Office Department and residents
of Telegraph Creek.
The matter of increased dock
accommodation, as promised by
the Federal Member, Mr Fred
Stork, and recommended by the
Federal Department of Public
Works, was also dealt with, and
instructions given to wire Mr
Stork for action on the subject.
Considerable discussion ensued
upon the question of sanitary
conditions. It was stated that
there is now a health officer and
sanitary inspector in the town,
though their duties did not seem
clear; therefore a committee was
appointed to go into the matter
with a view to remedying the
present unsatisfactory condition.
It was pointed out that in former days there was an official
sanitary inspector in the town,
in the person of the late Henry
Avison, who made regular inspections and had enforced the
Act.
The matter of there being no
building in town that could be
used as a morgue, and the refusal seme little time ago of the
Government to provide such a
building, was diicussed at some
length, resulting in the appointment of a committee to study
and recommend a solution of the
problem. A number of other
items of minor importance were
also dealt with.
Editor's Note:���It is to be regretted that more business peo-
Pl e in the town do not turn out
to the Board of Trade and other
similar meetings, as there is a
lot of work to be done and it is
not fair to leave this work, from
which all benefit, to a few. A
own is just as alive as the peo
P'e who compose it Conditions,
while good, can not be improved
unless we all put our shoulders
t0 the wheel and shove it along.
INDIAN DEAL
FALLS T
The Premier Gold Mining Co.
are not taking over the Indian
Mines Corporation nor the operation of the Indian mine, according to a statement made by the
Premier management late this
afternoon. The reason for this
is stated as being'on account of
unsettled market conditions, and
the Premier's already heavy commitments on other properties.
IH THE REALM
OF FISTICUFFS
Devotees of "the manly art"
are in for a treat next Monday
night when K. Pond and G. Hag-
garl. of Premier meet in an eight
round boxing contest in the
Stewart Opera House to decide
the heavyweight championship
of Portland Canal district. The
men have been in the squared
circle together on several previous occasions, without decisive
results, and it is said that there
is a strong rivalry between them
for supremacy. Pond tips the
scales at 196 pounds, while Kag-
gart is two pounds heavier, so
there is little advantage in the
matter of weight.
An extra-snappy semi-final has
been arranged between "Young
Mac," the amateur lightweight
champion of Vancouver Island,
and Art Flett of New Zealand.
Both boys are said to possess
class, and an exhibition of real
boxing science is expected in
this bout.
Ivan and Everett Ward will
appear in a preliminary, Those
who have seen these kids in action anticipate a warm few minutes. When they don the gloves
an ancient grudge comes to the
fore, and the rounds are all too
short for them when the fists
begin to fly.
It is understood that the winner of the main event will be
challenged by the Dunwell mine
champion for a bout in the near
future.

Stewart, and several struck off
at the Court of Revision held in
the courthouse last Tuesday by
Stipendiary Magistrate J. P.

were deleted after the last election for failure to vote at the last
Provincial election. In spite of
this the lists have increased,
there now being, with the new
additions, something over 425
names on the voters' list for
Stewart.
HAWKINSON -MURRAY
Married on the first of May in
Hyder, Alaska, J. P. Hawkinson
and Mrs Nellie Murray, to use a
colloquial expression, "put one
oyer" on their many friends of
the district, as the interesting
event was kept a profound secret until the time of a reception
and supper tendered the newly-
weds and a number of their intimate acquaintences on the night
of May 15th by Mrs Sidney
Smith at her residence.
Mr Hawkinson is one of the
best known and most progressive business men of Stewart,
being proprietor ofthe Exchange
Grill and Portland Canal Electric Laundry, president of the
International Electric Co., and
a prominent figure in all community enterprises. The bride
has been a resident of Stewart
for about a year, coming here
from Vancouver. Both have a
host of friends in the district,
with whom the Portland Canal
News joins in wishing Mr and
Mrs Hawkinson every happiness.
Telephone to Big Missouri
Communication throughout the
district is rapidly improving.
The latest addition to this will
be the construction of a telephone line to the Big Missouri,
equipment for which is expected
to arrive within the next few
days and will be immediately
installed.
'Simmie" Simpson Dies
James Stewart Simpson, familiarly known to his friends here
as "Simmie," who spent last
summer in the district and worked at the Porter Idaho mine,
died in Victoria on May 8 and
was buried on May 11th. He
served with distinction through
the great war, and at its close
a captain of the Royal Air Force.
He was educated at the Collegiate School in Victoria and Bishop's College of Lennox ville, Que.
Enlisting as a trooper in the
2nd C.M.R. in 1914, at the age
of 17, Capt, Simpson went overseas in 1915, being in the trenches
in France in the autumn of the
same year, where he was wounded. Returning to England and
being ordered to remain there,
he was given a position in the
Canadian Records Office, later
being granted a commission in
the Forestry Corps. A few
months after, he joined the Royal Air Force. Subsequent to
completion of training, he won
his wings while taking part in
the defence of London during
the air raids.
At the time of the Armistice,
Capt. Simpson lay in the Chatham Naval Hospital, suffering
from two broken legs, a dislocated shoulder and severe injuries to the head, entailing the insertion of a silver tube. He
never recovered from the effects
of the injuries to his nervous
system.
ning, the members of the basket
ball teams who so successfully
entertained the citizens of Premier during the winter.
During the past two weeks we
have had twice-daily stage service to Stewart and Hyder, and
many have taken advantage of
the chance to make the round
trip in one day.
Great excitement exists in the
district in anticipation of the
bout between K. Pond of the
Premier tram and Ceo. Haggart
of the mine, to take place in
Stewart on the night of May 24.
Both men have trained strenuously for two months and their
supply of sparring partners is
about worn out.
Reopen Keith Hotel
The Keith Hotel, the large
modern establishment built by
Bob Keith four years ago a short
! distance south of the Stewart
wharf, will be reopened next
Monday by W. R. Reid, who has
completely refurnished the place
and for two months has had
painters and decorators giving
it a thorough renovation, Mr
Reid's name is a guarantee that
the hotel will be conducted as a
first-class hotel should he. He
has had a wide experience in this
/ne of business, and is well
known all over Northwestern
British Columbia. The hotel has
been granted a licence to conduct
a beer parlor.
Harry Zeffertt, Stewart's prominent clothing merchant, who
left for a visit of several months
at his old home in Portsmouth,
England, where he was recently
married, will return to Stewart
next Sunday. It is expected
that Mrs Zeffertt will remain for
a short time in Vancouver.
DROWNING AT
BITTER CREEK
Murdoch McLeod Loses Life
In Attempting to Ford
This Treacherous Stream
���Body Is Recovered
In attempting to ford Bitter
creek last Friday afternoon or
evening, Murdoch McLeod, a
well known prospector and miner
was drowned. This stream is
considered the most treacherous
in the district, being extremely
swift and flowing over loose
boulders that are continually
shifting their position. The water was running eomparatively
high at the time of the fatality,
and the unfortunate man, who
was alone, was swept from his
footing.
He had gone to the government road camp that morning to
work, but not feeling well had
stayed in camp. When the rest
of the crew returned that evening he had left, and on not reporting next day a search was
made and tracks found leading
up the old road and to the water's
edge. This route would be a
short-cut from the camp to the
Bitter Creek roadhouse. A short
distance below the confluence of
Bitter creek with Bear river a
hat was found on the river bank,
and what appeared to be a body
sighted, lying on a bar in the
river. Sunday morning a row-
boat was taken up by the government truck, and the body recovered and brought to town.
Monday a coroner's inquest
was held, and the cause of death
established as accidental drowning.
The funeral took place Tuesday afternoon, under the auspices of the United Services
Club and the Native Sons of Canada, Rev. A. W.R. Ashley officiating. The coffin was draped with
a flag, and at the grave side
Tommy McLeod played "Lord
Lovat's Lament" on the bagpipes
Deceased was about 40 years
of age, born in Port Morien,
Cape Breton. After returning
from overseas, where he served
with the Canadian Engineers
during the war, he came to the
Portland Canal, and had mined
and prospected in this district
for the past four or five years.
Possessed of a very likeable disposition he had many friends, as
was attested hy the large concourse at the obsequies.
W. H. Forrest, of the survey
staff of F.C.Green. B.C.L.S., arrived from the south yesterday
and today went up to the George
Copper which Mr Green will survey for crown grant. The latter
is expected to arrive Sunday or
Monday.

THE GREAT BRITISH STRIKE
THE recent strike in Great Britain,
involving as it did 5,000,000 men,  can
safely be aaid to be one of the moat gigantic movements of its kind that the world
has ever experienced.   Bat this was not
the only interesting feature of this unprecedented incident, for while the world
held its breath at its very magnitude, and
people in other countries got more or leas
excited over what they felt sure would develop into a civil war, the British Government, the Unions and the Public met the
crisis with that superb poise,   calmness
and common sense in which they lead the
world in meeting great national difficulties, and as * result there was comparatively no rioting or disturbances,  no
shooting or bloodshed, thus demonstrating
beyond a doubt the superiority of the British peoples in the science of self-government.
It can hardly be conceived that such a
strike could have been pulled off in any
other country in the world and settled
without bloodshed, or at least serious
disorders, demonstrating most saliently
that indefinable something in the makeup of the British people that has contributed so largely to making them natural
born leaders in our present-day civilization, and why the British Parliament is
so aptly termed the world over, the Mother of Parliaments.
The rock-like character and eminently fair-mindedness of Premier Stanley
Baldwin contributed largely to the settlement.
The patient, good-natured solidity of
the general public was also a great contributing factor.
likewise the cool, collected common-
sense of the rank and file of the Unions,
and their leaders, was most commendable,
and conclusive proof of the fact that British Labor is not red nor communistic, aad
herein lies their strength. While possibly
the general strike might be termed to hive
been a tactical mistake, still the refusal
of several million rubles from the Russian
Communist party will go a very long way
toward repairing it, and so help retain
the strength of the British Labor movement.   ���
The strike has proven several things
above all others, and these are that the
British Isles are fully competent to solve
their own problems without bloodshed,
and that any form of dictatorial government, such as a few reds would like to
impose, or the reactionary Fasist party,
is outside of the pale of conception of the
great bulk of the people, and even labor
itself; that while Britain has a monarch-
ial form of government, and indulges in
titles, she is still the most democratic
country in the world, and her people the
most efficient in the science of self-government, in which she still continues to
lead.

THE USELESS "GOOD CITIZEN'
There is a certain type of man in every community who poses as a good citizen. He breaks
no laws, lives morally, pays his honest debts and
is never tangled up with the law in any manner.
But he lives of himself, by himself and for himself exclusively. When the call is issued for volunteers to put across a community movement and
give a boost, he never answers. When money is
needed for a public enterprise, his name is never
on the list When he sees a neighbor stuck in the
mud, he detours to avoid him. In fact, if he
stood on the shore and saw the ship of state sinking, he would never offer to throw out a line. And
if all mankind was fashioned from this same kind
of a chap, what would happen? There would be
no churches, no hospitals for the sick, no institutions for the unfortunate, no progress. If you
are about to become a useless "good citizen,"
read this editorial again.���Cowichan Leader.
Some writers are too specific.   Was reading

six claims staked by Mac Orr of

into prominence as the result of
an option taken on the property
in 1916 by Price & Aitken, who
shipped about $12,000 worth of
ore from a slide off a bornite outcropping. In 1922 J.R.Smith of
Smithers purchased a half interest in the property and with Mr
Orr has been carrying on prospecting and development ever
since.
On another part of the property they have a six-foot fissure
vein carrying gold and silver ore
that has consistently returned
around $70 to the ton in assays.
On this vein Mr Harris will turn
his energy and intends making
shipments as early as possible.

to Alice Arm ��n Monday from
Vancouver.
The first work to be undertaken this year will be the extension of the Matilda tunnel, where
conditions are extremely favorable for the encountering of one
of the big ore bodies.
All mining equipment and the
necessary supplies, with the exception of some perishable goods | at present resting in lack of roads
are on the ground,  which  is  a
great asset toward an early start.
Mr Flint will shortly visit  the
property, so that a decision can
be made as to the date when operations will commence.
Mining Ore at Esperanza
Mining still continues at the
Esperanza. Ten tons of ore are
now ready for shipping. Part of
this is sacked and the shipment
will be completed as soon as the
balance of sacks arrive from the
smelter.
LaRose Raise Continues
Work on the raise at the La-
Rose is being continued and an
additional 25 feet will carry it
through to the bottom of the
shaft. The ore continues to be
high grade, and the future of
the mine appears to be exceedingly bright. Five men are
working on the trail, so that
building and mining supplies can
be hauled from the railway at a
minimum expense.
Wildcat Tunnel Extension
The tunnel on the Wildcat property, owned by A. Davidson, is
being extended an additional 30
feet by Jens Larson, who, on the
completion of the work, will obtain an interest in the property.

START WORK ON
SCHUFER GROUP
Development work under the
bond taken last year on the
Schufer group of claims on Hudson Bay mountain about three
miles from Lake Kathlyn is to
open up immediately and Douglas Rae is already here to superintend operations for the British
Canadian Silver Corporation.
Mr Rae arrived yesterday from
Stewart where he has been connected with the undertakings of
this corporation in the Portland
Canal district.
Considerable preparatory work
must be carried out before any
attempt can be made at actual
prospecting and development of
the property itself, although this
is to be facilitated and rushed by
temporary arrangements in the
way of tents to house the working staff before permanent buildings are constructed.
The original plans called for
the testing of the Schufer property by diamond drilling, but
this plan has been dropped and
Mr Rae states that a tunnel is to
be driven as the first work, after
which the diamond drill may be
resorted to as a means of quickly
tapping a series of leads running
parallel on the property.���Interior News.

If Dunwell in May, 1925, was worth $4.50, with very little
cash in hand and practically no treasury stock, and capital of
$350,000,���
What is Dunwell worth the present day, with $275,000
available for mill, tramway and development?
The present market on this stock is around $1.75 to $2.00.
This is the third time Dunwell has offered an
opportunity in Canadian Mining Investments.

Local Stocks
(By H.W.M.Rolston A Co)
The Indian market continued
to slump and the stock is selling
around 7 cents. The cause of
this appears to be from a rumor
to the effect that if the Premier
deal is consummated, it wil) be
on an outright sale basil which
will place an intrinsic value on
the shares of around 5 cents.
The Dunwell market continued
weak, the cause ef which ia
believed to be the fact that the
third call is payable on or before
June 1st, and some of the shareholders have to sacrifice their
Dunwell holdings to meet the
payment. Reports from the mine
are very encouraging. Tram,
mill and power plant are progressing rapidly. A big increase
in price of Dunwell is expected
after June 1st.
Encouraging reports continue
to come in from Marmot Metals
about the new strikes made on
the property late last fall. The
stock is holding steady.
Premier and B.C.Silver are in
good demand, the former at a
few points lower than the usual
market; but Premier always reacts when the quarterly dividend
is declared.'
L&L and Independence remained inactive.
Lakeview came into  a little
better demand, and at the present very low levels offers every
chance of a rapid rise on resump
tion of operations.
Emperor Mines camp, we believe, is being prepaed to house a
bigger crew, to be put on at
the mine on the return of Gus.
