Stopping at Chilllwack for supper, wt*
then went ou to Hope and Vale, stopping for ibe night at Yale Lodge Auto
Camp.    Needing   some   batteries   for
our Hash lights, we went  in .iparcli
of   tbe   store-keeper   and   eventually
found   him   enjoying   a   bottle.    We
asked the geiitlman very politely to

What nn awful look he gave us—but
he never budged.   Finally we adopted
another method and joined him in a
bottle und afler about an hour's wait
persuaded him to get some butteries
for  us.    We  did   not   realize  at   the
time that this was (lie sort of bustaess

Leaving Vale at  7.30 the following

to Lytton where one can purchase a

talk about the amount of gold one cau
get out of the river and creeks.    At J
one small store we snw an old pros

totalled fourteen dollars and twenty

fence we got a  supply  of real good
tomatoes and further along got some
fine Ashcroft potatoes.   Shortly after
we ran Into a covey of grouse and
got   our   limit.    On   through   Cache
Creek and Hat Creek, stopping finally   at   Clinton   where   we   met   one

only four inches of Lemon Hart to
help to keep the cold out. Result
no sleep that night. Two bull moosi
fought all night long, snorting, grunting, rattling of horns, trees crashing
aud small logs breaking. About on
i lithe morning I could stand it no
longer and made a very small flre.
At daylight we commenced to stalk
the moose and Anally got to within
thirty yards of the two we had been
hearing all night. Getting quite excited I raised the rifle for a bead
shot, but our guide ordered ine "0I

bull moose at a distance of approximately 150 yards. McDermld and
myself fired seven shots between us
without disturbing a single hulr. It
hardly seemed possible thut we could
miss nucha big target at Bucha distance, Probably on account of being
so cold, as our teeth were chattering as though it was the north pole
we were at. It wns too bad missing
these three bulls, as they were, without doubt, the finest specimens we
saw during the entire trip.   Getting

PURE FRESH AIR
TThere is nothing like the pure fresh air and
sunlight to give vigor to body and mimi.
.Many persons make a great mistake in remaining indoors and broiling themselves to death
all winter besides the red-hot kitchenstove. They
are mortally afraid of catching a cold, The parents imagine that it is their duty to keep the
children in the house continuously as soon as
Host seal's the leaves, and to see that tho doors
and windows are closed, and nexl to air tight,
day and night. The parents want healthy and
-robust children; but lhey employ entirely the
wrong method. Let the children and everybody
else, have all the life-giving ozone of the out-door
air possible. The country people have ihis inestimable advantage over city people, and they
ought to be wise enough to make the best of it.
The fresh air is just as necessary in winter as in
summer.
the power of a secret kept, great charities, reformatory movements and Christian enterprises
may be advanced, ltis an often discussed question whether associations that do their work with
closed doors.aud admit their member: with pass
words, and greet i'ttch other with a secret grip
are right or wrong. Our answer is that it depends entirely upon the objects for which they
meet. If to pass the hours in revelry and obscene
talk, or to plot trouble to the country, then we
say with an emphasis that it is wrong. But where
the object is the improvement of the mind, the
enlargement of the heart, the defense of the government then we say. with just as much emphasis, lhat they are a blessing.

Wellington Now Has Few Evidences
Of Prosperity As A Mining Centre
Quiet Farming Area Was Centre of Heavy Coal Production in
Closing Years of Last Century. Pancho Villa, Mexican Bandit
and One Time President, Said to Have Lived at Wellington.
Wellington, five miles north of Nanaimo, *aud about eighty-two miles j
north of Victoria, ia on the Island I
Highway apd the Esquimau nnd Na- j
naimo Railway. Like alt earlier min-'
ir.g towns it has had its ups ami |
downs. Onco a very nourishing conl
centre, Wellington had a population
ol 3,000 people, and when all tho j
mines were in operation turned out i
about 2.000 tons of coal daily. Today
the tonnage has dwindled to about,
twenty tons daily ami tlie population
to about 100 souls.
There are several old pioneers such '■
as Mr. Chan-twill, who B'.arted the
Diver Lake Hotel n bout 1871, and
William Baker, who arrived about
1874, at Ilrst to work in the mines;
Mr, nnd Mrs. Saunders ami others
who have lived to see Wellington rise
nnd fall as the demand for coal varied.
There are still some of the old
landmarks, such as the Somerset
Hotel onthe Island Highway. Fifty
years ago it was a two-room building. Now much I irger. this wayside hostlery has fed and refreshed
the hungry 2nd weary for over fifty
years. There was a holel known as
Brown's hotel, but this was burnt
down in 1870, In that year the Weill gton mine was closed temporarily
on account of lire in the shaft.
Tlie Ilrst miner's strike was In 1877.
when the men struck for an Increase
of twenty cents per ton. Tlie output
at ihis time was about 300 tons daily,
Peeling was very high and two of the
miners were ejected from the coal
company's building.    The same year
the militia wn.i called io prevent further  trouble.
Bun iter, nis Work.
In 1870 an explosion killed seven
while men and four Chinamen. Tlie
Wellington mines of those days wero
very dangerous, there being much
gas and there were frequent explosions. In the early days, Chinamen
were in the mines in large numbers,
sometimes outnumbering the whites.
Mr. and Mrs. Sanders recently celebrated their golden wedding at Wellington. They arrived about 1880 from
Pennsylvania, when there were more
Chinamen than whites living at Wellington, Many Indians also lived
close by.
The Indians wore tlieir picturesque
garb and peddled pitchwood at twenty-five cents per bundle for kindling.
Tliey were not unfriendly, and Mr.
Sanders recalls: "They would walk
into the bouses without knocking, and
in winter rub their hands to show
that the weather outside might be a
little warmer."

N&W Coal Found
j    On June 1881 a ten fool seam of
i coal was found on the Wellington
slope, and in 1882 -another gas explosion took pluce and injured several
miners severely.
In 1883, Lieutenant Dlggle, then
owner of thc Wellington mine, sold
his interests to tlie Hon. Robert Puns-
I muir, and in the same year tlie Wellington miners went on a strike which
lasted about three mouths.
!    In  1884  a  thirteen-foot seam  was
I struck ln No. 5 shaft.
Convivial Times
I The population of Wellington was
growing rapidly, the town was every
evening filled with loggers, miners,
Indians and Chinamen. The logger
and miner were very close friends
those early times. Logging wus carried on close to most Of the settlements, so that the miner and logger
mixed more freely then than now.
It was the custom when any number
of men, no matter whal their calling
went into a hotel or bar, io become
one company of friends; small cliques
were not considered good form, so
each and every one paid for tho
drinks In their turn. Sometimes tbe
the company became so large, it was
impossible to drink all that was ordered.
In "the good old days" horse stages
were run between Nanaimo and Wellington. Although the distance was
only five miles, two stops, each for
from ten to fifteen minutes were made
to enable the travellers or passengers
to partake of refreshments.
The stage used (o slart from tlie
Diver Lake Hotel, and for half nn
hour before starting the stage driver
would lustily blow his horn st intervals, so that any within hearing
would know lie was preparing for the
great five-mile drive to Nanaimo

i The stopping places were, tho liis-.
| toric Half Way House nnd the Quart-!
; cr Way. There was no mistaking
■ these stopping places. Wheu within '
j a few yards ofthese hostleries, the;
I driver woulld blow his horn to warn:
I the hotel keepers he was about io
arrive, and make ready to receive
bis passengers.
Should it happen that thc driver
would forget to sound his horn, thc
horses were never known to make a
mistake and over-run these stopping
j places. The roads were bad, and tho
[horses would welcome these halts al-!
most as greatly as those who wanted
refreshments,
The fare from Nanaimo to Wellington was seventy-five cents each wny
with no rebate for return trip. If
would be patrons didn't have the
money, "walking was good". Mr.
Sanders recalls. The horse stages did
well until the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway started in opposition al
twenty-flve cents eai'h way, "then
without much ado. the horse stage.*
ceased to run, and no more did roadside residents htoween Nanaimo and I
Wellington hear tlle sound of the
horn and the neigh of prancing
horses. Thus a part of Wellington'-!
romantic past came lo au end."
In 18S5 there was a flre in No. fj
shaft. Fires were frequent In tit.)
mines iu thoso days. There was not
the perfect organization as there is
to-day, so that there was much solid
basis for the miners' complaints,
.Many of the disputes started through
lack of proper protection in the mines,
whicli made coal mining a dangerous
daily adventure.
From ISStI lo about 1889, Welling
ton had a very large population and
was producing thousands of tons of
coal daily. It was at this time the
company built a rail spur to Departure Hay, for exporting coal. From llii.s
time onwards Wellington became a
miniature seaport.
Sailor  Friends
The trucks which took coal to the
Bay returned full of sailors, who
would go to Wellington to take in the
sights as well as the miner's hospitality, Tlie sailors of the many ships
made many friends among the miners
and Wellington became a miners',
sailors 'and loggers' paradise . They
made a happy and sometimes riotous
combination and it is said their
friendship were sometimes so great
that occasionally  a  miner  would  be

In 1889 the mines were shut down

strikes and lockouts did not dampen

of all descriptions
fond of sports, every kind of game
wns played nml Wellington bad first
clasa footballers In those days. Bicycle racing seemed to be the premier spoil, nny and everybody who
thought they could make a showing
would make an effort to gel In the
bicycle races! The grounds were
just below Diver Lake and were often
referred inns South Wellington, the
presenl town of thai name being ahout
ten miles from Wellington. Wellington played second fiddle to none when
it came to sport.
Fiim'd BiuiOlta Itotront
In 1887 one of the most romantic of
men, Panehi Villa, was to be found
Working under Mr. Sanders In the
Wellington mine. The belief Is tint
Villa was chased eui of Mexico, worked his way through the States and
came to Canada to plan some future
campaign, lie was said to be, even
when around Wellingtons fearless
rider, and during bis spare time was
always writing something In Spanish.
Me mado repealed threats that he
would   gel   revenge   on   liis   ijursiisrn,
He was reported dend while al Wellington and bis mother came trom
San Francisco to claim the body, but
on arriving nt Wellington she found
her son. Villa, very much alive. Villa
acompanled his mother back to tbe
Stales, but before leaving sbe made
Mr. and Mrs. Sanders of Wellington
a present of sonic very beautiful Mexican shawls and wis very grateful to
them for the good care tbey had taken   of   her   son.      Ills    believed    Villi
was smuggled back to Mexico out?
yenr later to make very interesting
history.
In   1888  a   very  big  explosion  took
plaee, no less than thirty-one  white
miners   lost   their   lives.
Wooden  Railroad
In iSitn a man named Jordan built
a wooden railway with wooden rails
from Wellington to Nanoose Ba,, near
tbe present Hed Gap mill. The truckB
were drawn by horses but even this
cheap style of railway was nor profitable so was abandoned.
In-the same year more trouble
arose at Wellington, the miners demanded an eight-hour dny ;thts waa
refused by the coal company which
locked oul the miners. A boycott
wns declared on Wellington coal. Conditions were getting quite bad, nnd
very disturbed. BO thai in ISfll the
rim acl wns read and fifteen miners
arrested, In November of the sum.'
year the strike was called off and
oal again began to move.
In 1902 lion. Roberl Dunsmuir took
over ownership of the Wellington
mines, the Esquimalt * Nannlmo Railway and the railway workshops that
were at Wellington. The latter employed quite n number of men.
It is not generally known thai Wellington and Departure Hay bad the
ilrst telephone line In British Columbia and possibly on the I'aciiic Coast.
The line was built ttboul 1877. To
dale the first telephone was made under the superintendence ot 1'*. i>. little of Rockland Avneue, Victoria, being copied from a description of Hell
telephone published in 1870.
Ii would seem thnt ihe population
began to dwindle about 1806. In 1S9.S
many miners went to the Klondyke.
and some never returned,
The townsite of Wellington was laid
out   in   1892,   aud   n   fine   townsite   it
was theu, with fine stores and
churches. To day the population
would be about 100. there lea church,
a post office, three stores, iwo hotels,
j and only one small mine, the Little
j Ash. working what is believed to be
the outcropping of an old mine. The
output would not be more than twenty tons daily at present.
Federal   in.juiiV
In 1903, the presenl Premier of
Canada, Right Hon. Mackenzie King,
was sent to the West and came tc
Nanaimo as secretary to a Dominion
commission' Investigating labor conditions, which were so troublesome that
the then Federal Government decided
to ascertain the cause and see what
could be done to make conditions bettor.
Utile Remains
Thus another raining town population has dwindled from about 3,000
to about ion, and Hie production of
cool from about 2,000 tons dally to
twenty. Some say the °hl mines are
worked out, bul others say there is
still plenty ol coal nearby,
In the meantime, the sailors, the
loggers, ilie colorful Indians and
even the Chinamen nre none, just as
ihe birds of summer to oilier parts,
Thus the merry association with the
logger, snilorsand minora arc broken
up.

A five-ton truck, loaded wilh

As a result 10 long-distance

BUSHED IN UNGAVA
Marooned in the Ungava bush with
only a hundred pounds of Hour, some
cheese and a fishing line waa the
two weeks' experience of a young
Quebec flier. Out from England only
a couple of months be was unaccustomed to the woods life, but he managed to make tlie best of bis solitary
lojourn when Iuih plane was forced
down by engine trouble 011 a small
lake midway between the St, Lawrence ami the lop end of Quebec. Ho
had been flying food and supplies in
to prospecting parlies  working on  a
incession near Hudson Strait at the
north end of Ungava. He managed
lo catch enough tish to keep himself
going with the aid of the cheese, hut
he had no sah. Ho did not know
enough about bush life to keep a flre
going by day so that searchers could
spot him from the air. For several
days after he was reported missing
planes were sent out to look for him
along his accustomed route, from
which he bad. however, strayed some
twenty miles before coming down.
These scouts saw no sign of him and
asa final effort four planes started
out, each on its own course and flying a few miles apart, to look for
his plane,    He was sleeping wben ono
of them pa.-se'i overhead and did not
wake up In time to make some movement to ut tract the attention ot
tbe pilot, He then gave himself up for
lost. Fortunately the company still
held hope and sent out three of the
planes on another search. Ono of
these planes just  happened  to catch
passing glimpse or the machine on
the  lake.
A plane isa large object, especially
he big fifty-foot wing spread ma-
mines, which are used on this northern work. Bul they are only a Speck
on the ground to a filer at .1 height
of four or five thousand feet. A point
Is that most of the planes have their
wings pointed with silver-colored
paim.aml when the plain i- on water
it is almost Invisible atn few thousand feet, lt is suggested that the
wings should be palnteed some color
thai will contrasl with either water
or snow. It has been found by Dominion Explorers Limited, through
their work in ttie uubartlcs, that tho
combination of red and yellow can
be spotted belter than any otlier colors.
It is also suggested, nnd in Bome
eases   the   suggestion    has    been    put
Into effect, thai all northern fliers
