RELIEF FOR CASSIAR
CHANCE FOR  BIG BUSINESS
WE ARE afraid Alaska spoke too late,
but we are not sure.
The unanimous endorsement given
by every section of the great Northern
Empire to the movement initiated by the
Hyder, Alaska, Chamber of Commerce to
pull for a terminus at the head of Portland Canal of a transcontinental railway,
should make the railway heads, now in
conference at Ottawa to decide where an
outlet from the Peace River should terminate, sit up and take notice.
Mr. Railway Man, would you rather
have your freight cars which brought
wheat to the coast, go back empty, or
would you rather have them go east loaded
with Alaska products?
Think of that, Mr. Thornton. Think
of that, Mr. Beatty.
By building through to Portland Canal you have not only the shortest route
to the coast for Peace River products, but
you tap an empire of wealth which is now
IN SUPPORT OF, and perhaps adding strength to, the stand taken by the
Stewart Board of Trade for direct com-
munication from this ocean port to Telegraph Creek by means of a wagon road or
passable horse trail, we may say that the
News has on file letters received more than
a year ago from that point endorsing the
effort this paper was then making for a
winter mail route into the Cassiar.
Such a route would make a difference
of two weeks at least in mail communication to the outside for residents of Telegraph Creek.
It is hard to make a Government understand anything, especially a Federal
Government. The few letters that eome
and go from Telegraph Creek may not
seem of much importance to the representatives of "The Peepul" sitting in Ottawa.
The fact that a newspaper is a month old
before^it is read in Telegraph Creek, may
cause a supercillious smile in Parliament.
But these things are vital to the residents
of the Cassiar, and they are just as loyal
supporters of the British Empire as anyone who slips along the streets of the National Capital in his limousine.
Now that there are signs of another
placer rush, perhaps the Government will
act to the relief of the parties most interested. The Government must also consider whether it is worth while to have a
Canadian port for this Land of Wealth.

surprise you by their convenience and safety.
Take the sale of an animal. If it is
a cash transaction, you can ask the
purchaser to send you a marked
cheque or your bank will attach a

If it is a time sale, your banker will handle and

THE ALASKA SPIRIT       |
Typical of comments  appear- j
ing in Alaska papers concerning
the proposed   Canadian  railway i
outlet for Northwestern Canada
to Portland Canal, is the following from the Juneau Empire:      j
Let us hope that our Canadian
friends may be able to bring
about the construction of a railroad from Portland Canal eastward to connect with either the
Canadian Pacific or the Canadian
National Railway systems. If
such a road were constructed the
advantages that would accrue to
it and to all concerned by its
continuation to Hyder are too obvious to require elaboration. Of
tourse, Alaska wishes the project well and the Juneau Chamber ot Commerce did the right
thing in expressing its approval
of the project.
It is difficult to see how Alaska
can further the project beyond
wishing it well, endorsing it and
hurrahing for it, but undoubtdly
she will do all those with enthusiasm and without reservation of
any kind.

"We were at first inclined  to

THE GOLD QUARTZ
A letter from the   Telegraph
look askance at  the enthusiasm j Creek correspondent,^ thtflNews
over the possibility of Hyder becoming a transcontinental railroad terminus" says E. W. K. in
the Alaska Weekly. "Not that
we question its feasibility, but
we have suffered so many grievous disappointments in connection with proposed AlasKan development which appeared entirely justified and practical and
held every promise of being profitable as well, that while our
faith remains unshaken, we are
not so easily enthused as we
once were.
"Whenever you get in that
state of mind just talk to a real
rourdough���th��tre must be something in the very air of Aheka
which keeps the well-spring of
i ptimism always fresh and sparkling. W. L. Balch, wellknown
A'askan and just now one of the
leading spirits of that bunch of
live wires who constitute the
Hyder Chamber of Commerce
was in to see us and we can see
the glistening miles of steel and
the trainloads of fish and concentrates, and the shops and all th; t
goe3 with a railroad terminus.
"This is no idle delusion of an
optimistic hysteria but a possibility and one the accomplishment of which would be of tremendous value to all Alaska.

Stewart and Telegraph Creek,
this letter would have been leas

of a month.

Pat McBride, who came from
St-wart overland, has juit re-
turntd from Gold Pan creek. He
brings in specimens of rose
quartz with free gold in it. If,
in the spring, when it can be
properly prospected, it turnsfout
as Pat thinks it will, it will mean
more than the placer. Grady
always said there was good
quartz in there.
Homer Ficklin, Pat McBride
and Bob Lalimer made a flying
trip te prospect a small creek at
the head of French creek, in
the MeDames creek district.
