HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY,  SEPTEMBER 23. 1911
TEN PAGES
CONSERVATIVES SWEEP WHOLE DOMINION
CANADA DOES NOT WANT RECIPROCITY WITH THE STATES
HON. R. L BORDEN THE NEW PREMIER comox-atlin is still
AMONG THE DOUBTFUL ONES
HE WILL HAVE MAJORITY OF
FIFTY SEATS IN THE HOUSE
Ontario Went Very Strong Conservative���Quebec and the Maritime
Provinces Turn Against the Old Government---Prairie
Provinces Held Their Own, but British Columbia Went Solid for Borden.
It was a land slide for the Liberal party and Sir Wilfred Laurier goes down to defeat on the
question of Reciprocity with the
United States. The returns
from the Dominion were received
here the following day with the
greatest surprise by both parties.
It was never thought that Sir
Wilfred would be defeated, although the impression was general that his majority in the
house would be lowered, but that
he would still have a working
majority. The feeling of the
people here shows only too plainly
how far we are away from the
older and more thickly populated
part of the Dominion. Absolutely
nothing was known here of what
was going on in the east.
Sir Wilfred went to the country
at an inopportune time and on a
question that was generally believed should have been a nonpartisan one. His party was not
only defeated but practically all
of his cabinet ministers. The
Conservatives made gains all
along the line, and particularly
in Ontario, the heart of Canada's
manufacturing interests, and in
Quebec and the Maritime Provinces. The speeches of Hon.
Clifford Sifton throughout Ontario no koubt had great influence in that province. The fact
that so many of the governments
supporters refused to have anything to do with reciprocity was
also a contributing factor to the
downfall of the government, and the presence of American politicians and speakers on
the platform with Sir Wilfred
was also resented in the east
where there is a very strong
British feeling and vote.
Hon. R. L. Borden who has
led the Conservative party in
opposition so long and so well
has seized every opportunity and
he succeeded in returning his
party to power after nearly fifteen years. To the new premier is
due every credit. He fought a
great battle and he overcame
many obstacles placed in his way
by some of his own party. His
position as leader was several
times threatened but the rank
and fyle stood by him and he
has gained the day.
Hon. Mr. Borden is a big man.
He is a statesman of the front
ranks which he now has every
opportunity to prove even to his
most rabid opponents.     He is a
man of exceptional ability and
one whose honor has never been
questioned. That he will give
Canada the best government
possible is sure and to aid him
in his work it is up to the masses.
I no matter what their politics, to
stand by him. The campaign is
now over and every Canadian
should do his utmost for the upbuilding of Canada. If the majority do not want reciprocity
with the States the minority will
fall in line and work in harmony.
In questions of policy there will
certainly be opportunities for
disagreement but for the general
\ benefit of country Canada should
have   but   one   voice.     Elected
| with him Mr. Borden has some
men of exceptional ability. He
should have no trouble in seiect-
a cabinet that will handle Canada's affairs in a manner that will
bring population wealth and
honor.
No Returns Given
Previous to the election The
i Omineca Herald went to considerable expense in arranging to
give the public of Hazelton the
election returns.    The stereopti-
can lantern was secured from Mr.
W. H. Morrison and  everything
\ was ready to flash the returns on
the canvas across the street, but
the wires were down and it was
' impossible to get any results until the following day.     On another occasion we hope the wires
will not go down as it was a very
keen dissapointment to everyone.
The Wires Were Down
It was the old, old story���just
when the telegraph wires were
most needed they were down.
Hazelton and all along the Dominion Telegraph line the people
were left in ignorance as to the
election returns. On towards
I midnight a wireless message or
two were received at Prince
Rupert and sent up the line, but
\ that was all. It was a great
I dissapointment to the people of
I Hazelton. A big crowd was
down town to get the returns.
They hung around for several
hours and then went home. For
the first time in Hazelton's history the returns were to be
shown on canvas in front of the
Herald office and that is where
the people were. That we could
not give the returns was no fault
of ours. We need not apologize.
At the same time our regret is
sincere.
The wires were down the other
side of 150 mile house and while
every effort was made to get
them up it could not be accomplished. A heavey snow and
sleet storm along the Caribou
Road was the cause of it all.
Election Returns
The town of Hazelton was a
disappointment to both parties,
and at the same time both are
well pleased. Th9 supporters of
Duncan Ross did particularly
well. There was absolutely no
organization until a week ago
j and nothing had been done. The
I majority given to Manson the
last provincial election was about
57 and the majority for Clements
wrs 17. With a better organization Ross would have polled a
majority.
The valleys of the Skeena and
Bulkley rivers were very close.
Kispiox went solid for Ross. The
coast, north of Prince Rupert
was very close, but Rupert was
the stronghold for Ross, giving
him a majority of 172���the first
time that town has gone Liberal.
That is a direct result of organization,
An Outside Story
Special to The Herald.
Vancouver, Sept. 22���The late
Laurier government was swept
from power by an unprecedented
landslide which changes the Liberal majority of nearly fifty to
practically the same majority for
the Conservatives. The result
was a surprise to even the most
optimistic of the opposition.
Of thirteen cabinet ministers
seven were defeated, viz., Hon.
W. S. Fielding, minister of finance, Hon. Wm. Patterson, minister of customs, these two made
the reciprocity pact; Sir Frederick
Borden, minister of militia; Hon.
Mackenzie King, minister of
labor; Hon. Sidney Fisher, minister of agriculture; Hon. Graham,
minister of railways; Hon. Wm.
Templeman, minister of inland
revenue.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier will now
probably retire from public life,
as he has stated he would never
again lead the opposition. He
was elected by an overwhelming
majority in two constituencies.
He states he is ready to bow
to the inevitable.
The results so far as obtained
are as follows: Ontario, liberals
13, conservatives 70; Quebec,
liberals 36, conservatives 27 ;
Nova Scotia, liberals 10, conservatives 8 ; New Brunswick, liberals 8, conservatives 5; Prince
Edward Island, liberals 2, conservatives 2 ; Manitoba, liberals
1, conservatives 9: Saskatchewan
liberals 7, conservatives 3: Alberta, liberals 4, conservatives 1.
British Columbia, liberals 0, conservatives 6.
Clements gets  seventy  of  a
(Continued on page  three)
Clements Has a Majority of Forty-two and Several Places to Hear
From���Contest Was Very Close.
The result  of the election  in I
Comox-Atlin is still in  doubt, al-1
! though elements is leading by a i
: small   majority.     The   returns
| from the southern  part of the
' province were extremely late in
j arriving.      In   fact   practically
nothing was known  from their
i until   this afternoon  when  one
| dispatch gave Clements a majority of 269 from  a long list of!
places.    Ross had a majority in
the north of over 200 so that
| Clements is still ahead.     There
, are several place to hear from
including   a   number   from   the
outlying polls in the north, but it
is not expected that these will
; alter the result very materially. I
The contest in this riding has
[been very close.     It was hard
fought at every poll.    The Conservative organization  throughout the province is very efficient
and it is an uphill fight to move
in   opposition.     When   Premier
McBride promised to deliver a
solid British Columbia he started
in to make good and  he left no
stone   unturned.       In   Comox-
Atlin he used his influence in the
south knowing that unless the
north went all to pieces the south
would contest the riding. The
Hon. Richard figured right and
the north is still without a
member.
Mr. Ross put up a good fight.
He worked hard and he was
well supported. The campaign
was short and there was little
time to accomplish much, especially with the provincial influence
lined up against him. He deserves great credit for the run
he has made and his friends
hope even yet that he will get a
majority.
Latest Wire
At noon today a wire came in  stating   that  the  News-Advertiser gave
the following figures this  morning in
the Comox-Atlin district.
Clements        1448
Ross 1406
Clements ma}. 42
There are several of the Islands and
several Northern points to hear from
yet. Thus the election is still in doubt
although it is unlikely that Ross wil
be able to pull ahead as the polls not
yet heard from are very small.
Comox-Atlin Returns Up-to-Date.

Taft Disappointed
Washington, Sept. 21 Great
disappointment was expressed
here as the returns from the
elections in Canada were received. At the White House and
in the Clubs the results were
watched with interest nearly as
great as the United States Elections, and it is freely stated that
the Canadian elections will have
a great bearing upon the election
here. The annexation speeches
of Champ Clark and others is
blamed for having a great deal
to do with it. Annexation was
not the object of the States.
President Taft expressed great
disappointment when he heard
the returns from Kalamazoo,
Mich., but he said, "We will
I still do business at the old stand"
Two young Americans touring
Italy for the first time stopped
off one night at Pisa, where they
fell in with a convivial party ata
cafe. Going hilariously home
one pushed the other against the
building and held him there.
"Great heavens!" cried the man
next the wall, suddenly glancing
up at the structure above him.
"See what we're doinfc!" Both
roisterers fled. They left town
on an early morning train, not
thinking it safe to stay over and
see the famous leaning tower.

bought the land, realizing the wonderful resources of the Hazelton District,
the Mines, the Distributing Centre for
hundreds of miles, and many other
reasons.
We ask you to investigate in your
own way all the statements in this
advertisement. Should you join us by
buying lots you will know that your
investment is guarded by every means
known to human foresight, and the
judgment of a body of successful men
known to you all.

Don't stand idly by and see your neighbors reap the profits on Real Estate
while you reap nothing but your salary.

NEW HAZELTON is out of the

the whole year in the district say the
winters are not severe���plenty of sunshine and dry air.
Taken from Official Bulletin, B.C.
No. 22, page 23:���
"On the Upper Skeena, about a distance of 50 miles, there are large tracts
of land on both sides of the river,
wiiich, as far as soil and climatic conditions are concerned, I would consider
ideal for successful growing of fruit as
well as for other branches of agriculture. Potatoes, and other garden produce, grow to perfection."
Have you confidence of Merchants on the ground ?
Many Lots already purchased by the
keenest business men of Hazelton (Old
Town). You can safely follow the
judgment of such men.
NEW HAZELTON should be the

open new country.
Railroads have been the great feature
in the growth of Western Canada.
NEW HAZELTON, located on the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad is attracting the attention of the whole world, as
all important towns do on the main
line of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad.
Stores are going up. Newspaper,
two or three General Merchandise
Stores, Drugstore, Batik, Restaurant's
and in fact many lines of trade are now
arranging to open in NEW HAZELTON,
Section One. Activity is in that part
of the townsite known as Section One.
The story of NEW HAZELTON is
well known to the public. It is a Town-
site being offered to the public by
successful men. There is positively no
Railroad Company or Townsite Promoter financially interested in the land.
The owners have undertaken to make
NEW HAZELTON a city of importance
in British Columbia. NEW HAZELTON
promises to be the most profitable city
to the Grand Trunk Paoific along its
main lines.
Pay Office occupied by Oct.
lst.
Offices of Foley, Welch & Stewart,
contractors building the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railroad, are now under construction. Fifteen carpenters and foreman rushing buildings to be completed
and occupied by October lst.
NEW HAZELTON, the hub of the
Hazelton district, will be the natural
headquarters for what promises to be
the Most Active and Sensational New
City in the fastest growing part of the
world today on account of the wonderful Lead and Zinc Mines, the Groundhog Mountain Coal Fields, the Vast
Agricultural Country tributary to the
coming principal city in British Columbia on the Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad.

FIRST AUTOMOBILE TRIP
FROM SEATTLE TO HAZELTON
Trails Cut in Early Days Will Prove an Important Feature in the Trip
Which was Undertaken by the Pacific Highways
Association.
The trip of the first automobile
from Seattle up through the
Northern Interior of British Columbia and on to Hazelton which
was undertaken by the Pacific
Highways Association, recalls
the old days when the Independent Telegraph Company attempted to build a telegraph line
ap the Pacific Coast through
Alaska, across the Bering Straits,
through Siberia, to the capital
cities of Europe and thus connect
the two great continents. As
will be seen by the following
story the trails cut at that time
will prove an important feature
in the automobile trip. These
same trails have also proven of
unknown value to the early settlers and prospectors. The government wagon roads and the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
tirade follow these same trails
for many miles.
For several hundred miles,
from Quesnel to Fraser Lake and
possibly most of the remaining
distance into Hazelton the old
Telegraph trail may be found the
advisable route. This relic of
forty-six years ago, the landmark left by a fiasco in which
the world of those days was intensely interested and in which
millions of dollars were invested,
may provide at least a pack-horse
road and with some work by the
government may some day become a part of an overland highway into Alaska.
In 1865 a corporation indepen-i
dent of the Western Union Telegraph Company, but comprised
principally of the heavy stockholders and trustees of the latter
concern, was formed and capital
stock subscribed for the construction of a telegraph line that
should reach from the cities of J
the east across the American con-
tinent, north of Alaska and
across that territory to Bering;
Sea, across the Straits at their
narrowest point, through Siberia
and thence into Russia and the
important capitals of Europe.
At first an effort was made to
get the support of the Western
Telegraph Union, but a few of
the stockholders regarded it as a
visionary scheme, unpractical
and impossible. The reason for
desiring this line was that a great
syndicate was at that time engaged with more or less success
in laying the first trans-Atlantic
cable, and many of the members
of the telegraph company feared
that with the completion of this
cable, if it proved successful, the
Western Union would lose the
world's business.
The cable was being laid by
the Great Eastern, at that time
the largest ship afloat. Much
trouble was experienced and
some of the Western Union's
stockholders and trustees argued
that the cable would never
"make good", and that in case it
failed an effort to string wires
overland to Europe would be
unnecessary.
The independent company was
formed however, and the project was pushed forward. Telegraph lines already were in operation to San Francisco and up
the Pacific Coast, to the Puget
Sound country.    These were ex-
This same trail bears another
historical interest to the people
of this continent. It is the route
that was taken by hundreds of
men who took the overland route
into Alaska during the Klondike
rush of 1898. Scores of lives
were lost in the snow storms at i
that time.

tended by contractors to the
Canadian boundary, where Col.
William Bulkley a native of the
States, was placed in sole charge
of the enterprise through Canada
and Alaska to Bering Straits.
With an army of more than a
1000 men he took up the work,
extending the line to New Westminister, thence east and north
through the town of Hope and
over the Hope mountains, thence
along what is now known as the
old Caribou Trail. From Quesnel
the line took a northerly direction, past Fraser Lake, through
the great Bulkley Valley and up
to the village of Hazelton.
The struggles of these rugged
pioneers,    their   ceaseless    war
with the elements and  the Indians, the tragedies of death and
burial in unknown graves in this j
wildest part of the Pacific North-'
west,   might   easily   form   the
theme   for   countless    frontier i
stories today, though the difficul-1
ty of gathering data grows  constantly, for the survivors,   scattered   now to all  parts of the
earth are passing rapidly to the
Beyond.
Though supplies could be carried into the Interior only on foot
or by packhorse, great stores,
worth several hundreds of thousand dollars, were gathered by
Col. Bulkley in the valley that
bears his name, where headquarters were established for the
campaign, that was to carry the
line on through Alaska.
This work required almost
three years. In 1867 with vast
quantities of wire ready to be
moved northward out of the
Bulkley Valley, and with his
army of stalwart men, thoroughly trained to their work and inured to hardship, on the point of
starting forward from Hazelton,
word was flashed over the wire
up the Pacific Coast from the east
that the Great Eastern had arrived in port, completed her line
of Trans-Atlantic cable and
brought the old and new worlds
within a few minutes' touch of
each other.
The first message had been
flashed across the ocean over the
subterranean line and the enterprise was declared successful.
Col. Bulkley was instructed to
drop the entire work of the overland telegraph line. The men
were discharged at once. The
great stores of provisions were
deserted, left to the plundering
Indians and the herds of elk, antelope and deer that roamed the
country in bands of thousands.
Hundreds of thousands of tons
of hay and grain had been piled
up for pack-horse supplies. These
furnished nourishment for the
wild herds the following winter.
The thousands of tons of wire
were left as they were piled, and
with these the Indians built then-
many weird, unique things. They
used them in the construction of
their houses and built strangely
shaped bridges across the mountain streams, along the well beaten trails. Until a few years ago
many of these bridges were still
to be seen, and have been described
by men who have gone over the
trail into Hazelton since that
time.
Heavy Snow in the Hills.
Supt. Fall, of Silver Cup mine,
was in town this week and re-
ported that they have had a
heavy fall of snow up in the
mountains, although there is not
enough yet to hold back development work.

Hit The Upper Vein
Mr. Trimble arrived Thursday
night from Rocher de Boule and
brought a couple of new samples
with him. They have struck the
upper vein by the tunnel which
they have been working on for
several weeks. The tunnel is in
60 feet giving a depth to the
vein of about 45 feet. When
Mr. Trimble left they had got
into the vein four feet and he
expected that it would go about
eight feet across, thus giving
them an immense body ore.

ANOTHER BIG
COAL COMPANY
TAMPING A CAP
AND IT EXPLODED
Will Operate on the Sustute River Montenegrin   at   Paget's Camp Ser-
Early Next Spring. ioasly Injured on Monday
The Ashman Coal Co. is the
name of a new firm which will
operate in the coal fields of the
Skeena river valley. The company is composed of Vancouver
capitalists with Mr. J. K. Ashman as the manager. Mr. Ashman is well known here and on
Vancouver Island where he was
in the coal mining business for
the past 32 years. The coal that
Mr. Ashman has discovered is on
the Sustute river, a tributary to
Bear river, which in turn empties into the Skeena. The coal
is about 145 miles from Hazelton,
but it is on the line the first railway to the north will follow. Mr.
Ashman will take some men up
with him early next March, going
up the Skeena river on the
ice as that is the easier route
until the government gets a trail
built, which it will surely do as
it would also serve the Ground
Hog Mountain coal properties.
Mr. Ashman is a good coal man
and he says he has got some first
class stuff up the Sustute river.
This is only one more evidence
of the wonderful wealth of this
country and the beauty of it is,
there is an unlimited amount of
wealth undiscovered.
One of the Montenegrins working on Paget's contract the
other side of Morristown met
with a very serious and probably
fatal accident on Monday last.
The man was tamping a cap in a
charge preparatory to a blast.
He tamped a little to hard and
the cap went off and drove the
tamping iron through his forehead and into his brain. A good
sized hole in his head was the
result. An accident of this kind
is usually fatal immediately, but
the fellow was brought into the
hospital here and he has been
given every attention with the
result that he is beginning to
shows signs of improvement although the doctor will not yet
hold out much hope for his recovery. Mr. Paget was also
cut by a piece of flying stone and
another man was knocked over
by the concussion.

Since the Omineca Herald published a story advocating a new
bridge over the Bulkley river,

plan. They suggested that a
petition be prepared as soon as
possible and have it circulated.
Everybody would sign it as this
new bridge would mean a good

only place for the bridge, except
that a spot much farther up the

"The Hazelton Mining district
is not getting fair play on the
outside world," said Mr. J. F.
Cameron to the Herald this week.
"What the reason is, is hard to
say unless it is that the people
are too heavily interested in
lands and real estate. They are
foolish to knock the mines for
there will be no country without
the mines. This camp has been
knocked, but it is because the
people do not know anything
about it-"
This is Mr. Cameron's first
visit to Hazelton and he has been
very agreeably surprised to find
that there is so much ore and so
many promising properties. He
has been around to several mines
that are being opened up and he
will visit several more. The
probability is that he will take
over at least one property. It
was for that purpose he came
up. He saw the ore exhibit at
Vancouver and decided that the
camp was worth coming to see
and now he thinks it worth investing in.

The Campaign Over
Sir Wilfred Laurier and his
reciprocity policy was defeated
and Hon. R. L. Borden will lead
the government. But with that
defeat the people of Canada said
to the world, "You can trade
with us if you want to, but it
will be on the basis established
by us. If you want our goods
cheaper you can take off your
tariff." There is in such statements something to be proud of
and Canada will now occupy an
even higher place among the
nations.
The Liberal party lost heavily j
in Ontario where the manufac- j
turing interests are strong. They !
lost in Quebec and the Maritime |
provinces and Premier McBride
nearly made good his promise of
a solid British Columbia.
The fight is over. We congratulate the Conservatives upon i
their victory. We can now all
get down to business again and
boost for the Hazelton district
and the Northern Interior. No
matter which party is in power
we still have to earn our own
living.
the yards in New Hazelton are
the only place for such yards,
and to back up their judgment
some of them have purchased
lots in New Hazelton.
Had the people in Hazelton not
known Ellison sowellMr.Ryley's
public statements might have
caused alarm. As it is very little
attention has been aroused, except that the man on the street
is looking for a scrap between
the interests. The greatest
harm Mr. Ryley did was to start
a knock to the  Hazelton  district
the district from which his
company expects to get a heavy
traffic.

Its All Bluff
The people financially interested in New Hazelton Townsite
characterize Mr. G. U. Ryley's
statements published last week
about Ellison and New Hazelton
as pure bluff. When a man is
caught bluffing he looses the pot.
Ellison townsite has been discredited by the residents of
Hazelton as a possible townsite,
and the people here know the
property well. Ellison has been
turned down by the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Co.'s best engineers, because the grade was
too heavy and one end of the
proposed yard is on a curve. The
station grounds, if such they
may be called, are hardly large
enough for two tracks and there
is a bench below and a bench
above, both too steep to climb.
It will take more than Mr.
Ryley's say so or even a frame
station house to start any people
from old Hazelton building in
Ellison.
New Hazelton is certainly not
owned by the Grand Trunk Pacific, and that is the whole
trouble. New Hazelton is the
natural spot for the town. It is
level, it is close to the mines, it
is on the government wagon
road and it will be a very difficult task for Mr. Ryley to drive
the people away from there.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Co. does own property in
New Hazelton and they have
laid out their station yards and
the grading is being done. There1
is a plan fyled in Prince] Rupert
showing where the station will
be and Mr. Ryley knew this all'
the time, or should have known it.

Getting Ready for Winter.
Everybody around town is now
getting ready for winter. The
very cold nights this week have
made the people think and many
places are being fixed up. There
will be more people living under
canvas this year than ever, owing for one thing to the new
town being so late in getting
started, and as the majority are
going to move in the spring only
temporary quarters are needed.
Will Close the Deal.
Another wire was received from
Mr. John F. Cowan of Salt Lake
City, stating that he would close
the deal for Rocker de Boule in a
few days. That means the money
for the first payment will arrive
in a day or two. In the meantime work is progressing very
favorably at the property and it
will soon be necessary to have
