substaatial cabin^ave been built,  as well
as seven or eight large homes.   Last year
at this time the tcf^n was lighted with coal
oil or gasoline lamps, which have since
been discarded for-the more modern electric light, and even street lights, though
modest, are in evidence.   Another modern
convenience added during the year  is  a
water supply, which has been   taken   advantage of by a number of people.     This
winter Stewart has, in addition to a number of new business  houses a  doctor,   a
dentist, and other accessories that go to j
make modern civilization.    Other significant signs of growth  are two first-class
(mail boats a week and 61 children under 161
j years of age, who will be present at  the
'annual   Christmas  tree.   In  addition,   a
winter sports club has been organized.
Taken al! in all, Stewart has perhaps
made greater progress during the past year
than any other community of its size in
the Province; and the year 1924 promises
a still greater development, a year during
which Stewart will settle into its stride j
toward beooming, in a few years, the most j
prosperous and progressive community, in
proportion to its population, of any town

The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this I'rovinci

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, artf!
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000

I. HON. THE MINISTER 01  MINKS. Victoria, British Columbia
Stewart people are wondering
why they cannot, in the winter,
have regular telegraphic communication with the outside.
The answer is easy.
The reason is that headquarters, Ottawa, do not realize the
conditions under which this line
must be maintained.
Between Stewart and Anyox
are 54 miles of wire ���the longest
section in the whole Dominion
telegraph system for two men
to maintain, and the hardest,
because of the precipitous mountain sides, and the deep, soft
snow that is indigenous to this
district. The maintenance men
are also said to be the potest
paid of any on the line.
Some time ago a  requ. st was
put in for a new boat,   and   one
was provided; but the operators
now wish that they had the old
one back,   because   the new one
provides no accommodation   for
living quarters.   It   is   only  20
feet long and  the   boys,   when
they are in port,  must eat  and
sleep "up town."    Worse  than
that, if they are  caught  in   a
storm down the canal,   (as  happens frequently) they are forced
to ero ashore and   camp  in   the
snow.
They work hard to keep up this
line and provide the pubic with
a service to which it  is entitled.
They should not be compelled to
"siwasbK" like a pairof derelict prospectors. They should!
be provided with the means for1
properly doing their work���and
the most important of these is a
suitable boat.
Oh do not deride the home paper.

The irate sucscriber a-caper,
The printer asleep at his case.
The more other folks play, the
harder the printer has to work.
