Vernon, Feb. 14.���The Board
of Trade of this city has received little encouragement from
the other boards throughout the
interior in its efforts to work up
a delegation to go to Ottawa to
oppose the reciprocity proposals.
At a meeting today it was decided to cancel the proposed convention, as it did not seem to meet
with the wishes of the majority
of the boards communicated with

point of view, from the na.ini-i'.l -.mint
of view, from the Viewpoint of pnfiun
tial trade with Great Bii;ain. After
Lr.'ining the bill in this way for some
length he dealt with the motive! of the
United SattM in seeking the arrange
ment. He stated thut it Wai the known
ambition of both political parties in
the States to have a circle from the
Rio Grande to the Irozen north and
including a free trade country with a
tariff wall aguinst the world.
The American view, he suiil, had
always been to drive Canada into
Union from the duys of the revolution
to the present time by means that were
chiefly harrash'ng und repressin-: but
Canada had always stood sturdily
aguinst such methods to force annexation. And he believed that she would
not be deluded into the first step toward
thai end by the alluring promises ol
any trade treaty.

(Special to the Optimist)
Washington, Feb. 14.���There was
great excitement in political circles in
..his city yesterday and last night. Thc
McCall Bill which proposes *.o carry out
the provisions of the reciprocity treaty
with Canada came, up for discussion
and attar a lengthy debate passed the
House of Representatives by a veto ot
220 to 92.
At the previous pasting of th? bill
the House was defeated by 111 to 191
on a motion to have the bill recommitted
with instructions to add fresh meats
and all meat products, prepared cereal
product?, flour, bran, cotton ties and
bagging, binding twine, lumber and
agricultural implements on the free list.
Yesterday's victory is taken as an
excellent augury for the final ratification of the treaty. The people of the
capital are intensely interested in the
debates in the Houae on the subject
and it is not difficult to guess that
their sympathies as well as theT votes
are on the side of reciprocity.
Some Leading Opiniona
The following are among the opinions
of some of the leading United States
journals, and afford an indication oi
the feeling in the mora cnligh;ened
sources of public opinion.
Greed of Special Intereata
The arrangement now proposed is a
step only in the direction of commercial freedom, but. the principle involved
is vital and it can hardly fail to expand. Established almost sixty yea.s
ago in a true reciprocal treaty, it was
abandoned only as selfish interests in
this country became powerful enough
at Washington to apply to all of our
fore:gn trade relations the narrowest
rules of conduct. In this unenlightened attitude they have been only too
smartly as.,isted by the avarice of
Canadians themselves.
In .fact, it is partly to the evident
willingness of the Dominion to levy
a tariff war upon us that the present
agreement . is due. Fortunately for
both countries, popular sentiment in
Canada as well as in the United State.,
has proved too strong for the greed of
special .interests or for the bumptious
ness of politicians. We will get cheaper
tood, lumb.T, pulp and paper. Thc
Canadians will get cheaper agricultural
implements, coal and furniture. Both
parties to ths bargain will gain prodigiously in the freer exchange of their
products, in self-respect, in good humor
and in true neighborliress.���New York
World.
Precuraor to More
This agreement is more sweeping
than had been expected; and should it
be adopted may prove ihe precursor
to many more conces: ions to a nation,
which, us the President has pointed
out, is linked to us by an identity of
interest, race, language and political
institutions, not to mention its geographical proximity. So long as wc
strike something like an equivalent in
our "give and take" with Canada, we
should be satisfied, even if an exact
financial balance is not attained. Canada will ratify this agreement in all
probability.���Financial America, N. Y.
Democrata Will Carry It
When confronted with evidence of
thc growth of tariff reform s-entimont
in the country the Republican organs
used to say that, neverthe'es*", there
was one more Republican Presidential
victory in the tariff. Wo can tell the
Republicans now that there is a sure
Presidential victory for the Deomcrats
an the Canad;an reciprocity agreement
if ihey reject it.   .   .    .
By his boldness in negotiating this
agreement and in interpreting its meaning to the country, Mr. Taft has done
much to atone for his party's blunder
in enacting the Payne-Aldrich tariff.
The credit will accrue to him.���N. Y.
Times.
Beat Intereata of Each
New York, Feb. 10.���A London
cable to the New York World says:���
Discussing the reciprocity agreement,
Lord Strathcona said today:
"I have been asked which country
got the best of the deal. I can only
say tbe arrangement seems to be a
mutual one. Neither country can reap
any benefit at the expense of thc other.
Until the full schedule arrives, It is
impossible   to   give   a   complete
defini,e opinion. Wha< uppears to be
the case is that the statesmen of both
countries have com? to an importan
agreement, which in their view will be
in general to thiinte* est oi both nations."
He Wanta Dea Tomatoea
In a speech at a meeting of Niagara
fruit growers, which passed a strong
resolution declaring against reciprocity in fruit. E. D. Smith, ex-M. P. for
Wentworth is reported to have said:
"No more would growers sell tomatoc*
at a dollar a pound in Winn-peg because
the West would gel them cheaper from
Chio." This argument, it might bi
obsorved, is much more effective in the
Niagara district than in thc West. Manitoba Free Press.

Useful School Fads
"The first business of a child is to
become a healthy animal."
Luther Burbank, whom everyone
knows lor his wonderful work in I he
rearing of plants, has written som.��
interesting things on the rearing ol
children. Hcsays: "Every child should
have mud pics, grasshoppers, water-
bugs, tadpoles, frogs, mud turtle*, el-
derberrries, wild strawberries, acorns,
chestnuts, in** to climb, brooks to
wade in, waier-lillies, woodchucks, bats,
bees, butterflies, varum* animals to
pet, hay fields, pine cones, rocks '.o
roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and
hornets; and any child who has been
deprived ol these ha.*, been deprived ol
the best part ol his education."
That is laying it on pretty thick,
but you can tell what Durbank means
He means that a child should be out in
the fresh air and sunshine as much as
possible, learning Irom things by handling (hem, and above all, whether hc
learns or not, exercising his muscles.
There are parents who worry because their child does not take readily
to books, but preiers boisterous play.
Don't think this means that the child
will not have a good brain later. Men-
.al power is the highest and most complex of human ati.ibut.-s. We do not
look fo. mm from orchard trees until
alter a long period of growth: so with
the child. The fine fibres of the brain
upon which mental power depends
have not all doveloped by the twelfih
year.
Don't compel a child 'o do much fine,
minute work and discourage him il hi:
wants to. Ii he is going to write, a
big coarse pencil to make big letters
is the thing to start with. A 6-ycar-
old child ought not to read type in
which the capitals are much under a
quarter of an inch high. This is because ther? must be consid.*rable nerve
development before there i.i a capacity
for fine work.
Eyes were made for .teeing at a distance mostly. They have to be broken
in very gradually to the heavy strain
so often demanded ol them by our
way** ot working nowaday.* Let thr
child u.tc his eyes as much as possible
on large things, and out in the open.
Eye strain and th? effort of attention
to fine work like needlework and too
much reading and writing ar,> .mini..
of the nerve disorders now so common.
The nerves that control big bodily muscles are in a way thr mundation of the
finer nerves. Let the child get a good
foundation for his nervous system by
plenty ol running, romping, climbing,
etc.

OUR  COOKERY  HINT
Pommel Parisicnnea
Pare some firm cooking apples and
cook them gently in a thin sirup ol
sugar and water to which several thin
strips of lemon rind have been added.
R.-move the apples and set them aside
to drain and cool. When required for
table arrange them in a deep glass dish
surrounded by abundance ot broken
lemon jelly piled between and around
the fruit. Cover each apple with a cone
oi stiffly whipped jwestened cream.
Serve very cold.
HOUSEHOLD HINTS
The addition ot a beaten egg to the
mashed potatoes used for potato cakes
will be found worth while.
If bread dough is well beaten with
a large spoon b.-iore the hands are put
into it thc bread will be light and wholesome.
Before washing silk stockings they
should be soaked in cold water for one-
half hour, and then washed in Ink, -
warm water with good white soap.
Common laundry soap should not be
used, nor should the stockings be ironed,
as heat is apt to crack silk.
When boiling a pudding in a cloth,
lir.-t wring thr pudding cloth out in
boiling water and then, spreading it
over a bowl, dredge it well with flour,
flouring it well again near the opening,
after thc pudding is tied. This will
prevent the bag's contents becoming
water-soaked.

Among the successiul women farmers in Missouri is Mrs. S. E. Kase-
macher of Ironton, who for 22 years has
managed her 200-acre faim in Iron
County, called the Clover Valley Farm.

65 years of her life in the country, and
is an enthusiastic advocate of the large
farm.

of time to thu ocean going steamers
that visit the ports of British Columbia.

London, Feb.  12.���The confusion of
I thc Unionists as a result of lhe rcei-
i procity   agreement    has   lieen   evident
daily   by  the  conflicting   articles   appearing in the  newspapers last  week.
Ono  section  voiced   by   ihe   Morning
, Post  is arguing  a rally of  the impe
| rinlists oi   Canada  and  Great   Britain
I to frustrate thc ratification and avert
the grave peril to thc empire.
Another section is rejoicing that thc
! Unionists are now free of the grossly
unfair handicap ol a food tariff tax
and is calling upon the Unionists lo
recognize thut imperial pi-clerenre is
dead.
Chairman Smithers of the G. T. II.
lioard says there have been so many
different views expressed aliout the
reciprocity agrecmen; that he does
not think all the necessary material
has been obtained in England as yet
to enable him to form a correct opinion, but he believes that whatever arrangements are finally made, nothing
can stop the growth of Canada.
Thc Pall Mall Gazette says: "It is
highly significant that in Winnipeg,
in many ways the intellectual capital of thc Dominion, both parties are
viewing the reciprocity agreement with
rising apprehension. Canada must bid
a long farewell to all her greatness and
lapse inlo a state oi contented un-
progressive provinciali.-m as thc handmaid ol thc American trusts and the
contributor of the fifty-first star to the
flag which will rule the continent."
An ��� UM, is being made to reduce
thc license fee lovi-jd by the city on the
Empress and Majestic theatres. Th?
fee at present is $200 a year. Theatres
in Vancouver arc charged only $100 it
is understood and th.> proprietors of
the Rupert show houses want to bc taxed
only to the same extent as th,- Vancouver
people.
It came out through Alderman Kirkpatrick at last night's council meeting
that both he and Alderman Vernor
Smith are interested in the two houses
named, and consequently the application for reduction of licence fee was
made through thc managers of the
theatres.
Aldtrman Newton in a v.-ry long
speech mentioned that these being
thc only places of entertainment in
Rupert should have some consideration.
Hc moved that the cily clerk write
to thc Vancouver cily clerk for particulars of thc theatre lictnees there,
and iIn* will be done.

LIGHT PLANT  INSURANCE
Should not More Firms Have Shared
in This Business:
In insuring the city light plant the
policy was halved between Peck, Moore
& Co., and M. M. Stephens, $6000
business to each firm. "Why this?"
asked Alderman Pattullo last night.
"When tho hospital was insured the
busim-RS was divided amongst many
insurance agent' in the city. M. M.
Stephens was one. Why were thesj
two singled out for tha light plant
insurance when thc others also pay
taxes?"
There was no dofinit? reply given,
and thc matter was left there.

GOOD NEWS FROM WASHINGTON
The news, iiihetl OVOI the wires this morning, that the House of Represent-
ativos at Wa-ningt.i.i has endorsed the reciprocity treaty by an overwhelming
vote, will cone as welcome news to all who have the best interests of Canada at
heart. To the men and women of Nor,hern British Columbia who are confronted
with (he two great problems of how io reduce the cos; of living and how to develop
our enormous fishery resources, the news comes with particular satisfaction, for
in the reciprocity treaty lies our means of accomplishing both desired ends.
The ond >rs *m,*nt of the House of Representatives docs not by any mean*
end thc passage of the treaty. The measure must now be passed upon by the
Unit-d States Senate, where "interests" are concentrating their opposition. With
out an enlightened public opinion behind it, the defeat of the measure in the Senat.'
might be looked for, but it is extremely unlikely that the Senate will dare to reject
tho bill in the pros-n. s'.ate of public opinion. Uke the British House of Lords,
the Second Chamber of the United States cannot safely ignore public opinion.
Despite the pressure which will be brought to bear by lhe trusts and their tools,
by Sena'.or Lodge and the Now England fish interests, the treaty will probably
stand. Yes.erday's vote of thc House of Representatives is not merely an augury;
it is an indication of the mind of the country, a menacing threat which the Senate
as an elective body cannot afford to ignore.
The canners of British Columbia are waiting for the next good word, the
news thai the treaty has passed the Semite, opening up the markets of th* whole
of the North American continent to our fish. When that word arrives, n new day
will dawn for our fisheries, and an era of undreamt expansion will begin.

Hcuris wen* trumps at the Presbyterian Church hall last night where
thp ladies of the crngrcgation entertained nl a "Valentine Social." Cupid-*'
symbol deooraied the room wherever
the eye turned, while in return lor a
contribution to the treasury, the ladies
pinned hearts on the coat lapels of every

and charades was provided by the \liss >���

Messrs. Scott,Froud, Robinson, W. (i.

quickly soiled upon by the audience.
Before the refreshments appeared, a
valentine limerick contest was h��ld,
ai which every couple had to contribute
a verse on the rhymes "Heart, part,
swoct, complete." Great amusement
followed the reading of the rhymes.
Most of them breathed undying devotion, though one unlucky wight who,
coming lav had to take a gentleman
for a partner, managed to absolve his
conscience by saying:
"Oh, dearest heart,
We'd better part,
Two gents like us, though ne'er so sweet
Could never make a match complete."
The prize was awarded by the judges

partner, Mr. W. E. Williams, managed

"The Duties of Citizenship"
This evening at o'ght o'clock in the
old church building under the auspices
of the Young People's Presbyterian
Club, Ex-Mayor Fred Stork, will give
an address on the above subject.
This is another oi the excellent series
of meetings promoted by the aforementioned organization. All are cor-
lially welcome and citizens of whatever
���lass or creed are invited to attend.
In thc Kaien Island Club's spacious
gymnasium last night the dance given
by the ladies of the club was held, and
proved in every way a splendid success.
Brightly decorated with ribbon streamers and flags the lofty hall with its maze
of dancers moving to the rythm of
the music, formed a fit setting for a
delightful evening's dancing.
The centrepiece ol the decorations
was a gracefully festooned ribbon crown
with streamers bearing the letters of
the phrase "Love's One Day," and
on the musician's gallery a cleverly
contrived illuminated moon was hung
to give the proper effect to the "Moonlight Waltz."
A long and well varied programme
of dances included beside the moonlight
waltz, several other fascinating varieties
of waltzes and two-steps and was on-
joyed to the full. The medley or "Butt-
in-Dancc" proved an attractive item
with lots ol life in it. Great credit
reflects upon Mrs. Arnold and the
other members ot the Kaien Island
Ladies' Athletic Club, for the success
of their dance. In arranging for it they
were unsparingly energetic.
Among those present wore: Mrs.
Arnold, Mrs. P. W. Anderson, Mrs.
BlanchcU, the Misses Barbeau, Mrs.
P. McCaffery, Mrs. Wark, Miss Glcason,
Miss Ackerman, Miss Kincaid, Miss

COAL CLAIMS FOR CITY
Exalted Pricea of Black Diamond Inspire Council to Investigate
Coal claim*, for the city, that is
Alderman Clayton', idea, and Aldtrman N w-ion supports it. Princ, Ru-
purt should gv. busy tli.v think und
stake a couple ot nitv fa coal claims,
or purchase* some already siukid so
that in future the city may haw an
independent coul supply ut rjasonnblt
rates,
Those app Uing coal prices which
have nignod grimly her.' during thi
winter are responsible or thc ideu
pui last night in th, form of a mo, ion
o the city council. Th.- motion include*! thu a select commit lev shall
tnquirt into th." cos*, of conl, und this
mutter of staking coal claim** und
r .port wl-. n a decision is arrived at.
Alderman Clayton holda that the*
c'.y may stake coul as ii stak *s wut r.
On the other hand, Alderman Patiulla
dees not think ,the city can ..take coal
ciaim*.. His own solicitor has informed
him so. Water is u different matt-tr.
He rathtr thinks too, that for Princi
Rup -rt to siH'culate in coal claims will
not benefit the city'i credit much outside. Howjv.-r, Aldermun Pattullo supported t he motion in so far a. it concerned
an investigation of the coal question for
thc bent fit of the city, and it was carried.
HOUSES   TO   BE   NUMBERED
Will Help You to Find Your Friends
and Client*
In Princ ��� Unpen it is hard for evt n
th�� old timer to discover whi re a man
lives if he hunts him up lor th. firjt
timt. For the n>w arrival tht task i:
discouraging in th> extreme. But
Alde-rm-n Hilditch, N.wton and Ken-
are lo go into th.�� matter of a house
numbering system which will help
matters. Th.- idea as explain, tl by
Alderman N.-wton last night is to
numb r th.> houses und lots struight
so thul if you build on a vacant lot
your hou...- number is waiting (or you
so to sp.-ak; and there won't bj any
juggling with alter.'d numbirs to mak**
contusion worst conloundtd later on.
Aldtrman Clayton also mtmiomd the
syrtcm ol which blocks carry each

GUARD   AGAINST   SCOURGE
Vaccination   Act   Is   Before   Health
Committee of City Council
The act r-ga.-ding the pr cautions
���gainst the spread of smallpox in B. C.
was brought before the* notice of the
cuy council on Monday night. To
comply with the terms of it it will be
necessary for the council to provide a
Curtain place and hours at which persons
desirous of being vaccinal >d muy have
the operation performed by tht city

FOR RECIPROCITY
COAL NOTICE
COAL NOTICE
WILL NOT AFFECT PROTECTIVE
PRINCIPLE  AT   ALL
Says the Treaty Is a Mensure of True
Statesmanship    Intelligent   Citizens and Public Men Approve It
Opposed by the Demagogue.
Minneapol s, Pel). 14. Vigorous support ol the proposed reciprocity agreement with Canada is given by James
J. Hill, of the Great Northern railroad,
in a signed article appearing in an
pastern paper.
Mr. Hill repudiates utterly the arguments advanced againsi reciprocity | ro-
posed by the Stand pat tariff advocates.
"It does not affect the protective principle at all," he declared, an adds
that fear of tha collapse of protect ion
is due to ignorance. He also urgei
that this will likely be the United States'
last opportunity to make such an
agreement.
"The proposed reciprocity agreement
between Canada and the United States
is a measure of true statesmanship,'
says Hill. "All Intelligent citiwns and
public men approve it. It is mainly
opposed by the d.'tnag.igtte.
No Valid Objection
"There i-i no valid objection to even
much freer interchange ol commodities
be ween he two countries than , hat
provided for by thp new tr.*aty. It
does not affect the protective principle
at ail because protective dutlet are of
no more value between thc United
S.ii.e> and Canada than tiny would l.i
between Mlnnooota und WlscoaJn."

Reciprocity, Our Fisheries and Coast Defence
There is another aspect���an Imperial aspect���to the reciprocity treaty in its
relation to Northern British Columbia. It is an aspect of the question that has
not been touched on by any ot the great patriots in the Legislature. In their
alarm lest we should all be starved to death through an abundance of cheap food
they probably overlooked it. It is the pr bable effect of the treaty in building
up a strong body of British sailor-lisherman, familiar with our waters, who will
bar out the need for yellow labor in the fisheries in times of peace, and be ready
to man our coasl-defenee vessels in times of threat. It is a truly Imperial aspect
of the question.
What the resources of our fisheries are, no man can estimate. Their value
if developed, has only been hinted at. Sir George Doughty has spoken, and now
Sir Edmund Walker in his annual address to the Bank of Commerce has taken
up the theme. "If by indifference," he told his hearers, "or because of the great
difficulty ot making governments believe that vigorous action is necessary, we
are robbed of the value of this natural asset, the damage to Canada will be incalculable Deep sea fishing is our opportunity to build up on the Pacific Coast,
communities of white fishermen, without which we shall suffer as a nation in a much
more serious manner than from the mere loss of money. Capital in a large way
awaits the development of the Pacific Coast fishing. Markets exist in our own
country, and the halibut and herring fisheries, if protected (from poachers) will
exceed t a salmon industry."
What reciprocity means to the lalmon industry has already been shown in
this column. Similar development consequent on the abolishment of the cent a
p und tax on Canadian fish will open up the entire fish market of the United States.
Even at present tariff protection does not prevent good Canadian halibut from
entering Seattle. Daily some fish poacher or other laden to the gunwales.steams
into Seattle with her hold full of Canadian halibut. What the tariff does, is to
prevent the Canadian from selling his halibut in Seattle in competition with the
Yankee poacher who carries it in free. At present our halibut banks are of but
small value to us. We have the halibut, but not the market. Indeed some fishermen atecrt that the Yankee fish poachers are doing a good work for Canada in
keeping the halibut from breeding too fast on the banks.
The removal of the embargo on our fish will not merely stimulate the industry;
it will make it profitable and stable enough for the industry to become a white
man's industry. The sons of the hardy Scotch and Yarmouth fishers will find it
to their advantage to come to our shores and settle. They will be men of our own
breed, loyal to British institutions ���j-nd the flag. Their economic value to thc
community is apparent; their patriotic and Imperial value to the naval authorities
must not be overlooked. Thc shores of the North Pacific, and not the North Sea,
may be the world's next cockpit.
The words of Sir Edmund are worth repeating: "Deep sea fishing is our opportunity to build upon the Pacific Coast communities of white fishermen, without
which we should sufler as a nation in a much more serious manner than from thc
mere loss of money." In the light of the proposed reciprocity treaty the words
have an added significance.

PORTLAND CANAL DISTRICT
IS GOING RAPIDLY AHEAD
Stewart Shows Great Progress for Year���New C. N. E.
Line Will Bring Fortune to the Bitter Creek District���Some Big Mining   Propositions
Now that the winter is breaking up,
the  prospectors round town  are busy
Rotting their kits  in  order,  preparing
for a long season in the open in search
of coal, iron, copper, gold, timber and
farming lands, and incidentally a fortune.
Already a large number of inquiries
huve  been  received  from  the  outside
frompeople, many of thim wilh fi n ililf
who are inquiring the best route and
methods  of  getting  into  the  interior,
and a large addition may be looked for
, to  the  permanent   inhabitants  of  the
j province.    This is gratifying, for it  is
' to the settler nv.Te than to any other
that we must look to bring development.
I On  the trail of the settler,  railroadi
banks, antl intluctries are built.
The extraordinary development which
Prinee   Kupert   is   undergoing   is   also
, being  paralleled  by   Stewart     An  in
, teresting review of the year's progress
i of that  place has just been given by
' the   To tland   Canal   Miner.     Among
the principal  new  works are the new
j wharf, built by the Federal Government
at a cost of $35,000;   a $35,000 hotel,
I a   modern   electric   light   and   power
plant,   ar.   organised   fire department
with chemical   engine   and   tircfighting
apparatus,  courthouse, jail  and  police
residence   while   the   Federal   Government's   telegraph   line   to   Stewart   is
| almost completed.
Behind all this development is the
railway and mining development. The
Canadian Norlh Eastern Railway's line
out of Stewart is gratled as far as Bitter
Creek, three miles of steel are laid, and
round house, machine shops, and freight
and passenger depot built and occupied.
Already over $500,000 has been expended on the line.
Now that the line has been laid into
the heart of the rich mining country
at Bitter Creek even greater development is looked for. A townsite has been
laid out at Bitter Creek which is destined to have a great future, owing to
its location at a strategic point in the
layout of thc country, and its nearness
to the mining district.
Last year was the first attempt on
any large scale development when the
Portland Canal expended over $100,000
on aerial tramways und u concentrator
plant with the result that it is treating
75 tons of ore per duy. With the near
approach of the railway, there is activity
among all of the mines, while the C.
N. R. are bringing out a fleet of ore-
carrying vessels to connect with the
C. N. K. rail service.
Sir D. D. Mann of the C. N. R. and
C. N. E. and his associates have bonded
50 claims and with the coming of their
fleet, great activity is looked for on
their properties. The total list of
companies with their incorporations
in  the  Bitter Creek  district  is  Bitter
Creek Mining Co., $200,000-; Blue
Point Mines, $1,000,000; Big Cusino
Mining Co., $1,500,000; Bear River
Mining Co $375,000; Glacier Creek
Mining Co., $500,000; International
Mining Co., $1,000,000; Little Minnie
Mining Co., $1,500,000; Mountain Boy
Mining Co., $3,000,000; Main Reef
Mining Co., $500,000; Olga Mines, $1,-
000,000; Portland Canal Mining Co.,
$1,000,000; Portland Star Mines, $1,-
000,000; Portland-Bear River Mining
Co., $500,000; Portland Wonder Mining Co., $600,000; Portland Dreadnought Mining Co., $500,000; Red
CHIT Mining Co., $1,500,000; Red Cliff
Extension Mining Co., $750,000; Roosevelt Mining Co., $1,500,000; Rush-
Portland Mining Co., $250,000; Sulmon
River Glacier Mining Co., $600,000;
Stewart Mining & Development Co.
$100,000.
With the prospect of such development ahead, with an army of prospectors in thc field nnd nn assured large
payroll from the mines in the Bitter
Creek district, the future for Stewart
and the whole Portland Canal district
looks very bright.
