HAZELTON'S BIG POLITICAL
MEETING FOR WM. MANSON
Conservative Candidate Delivered a Most Excellent Address and Made
a Powerful Reply to His Critics���All the Candidates
Present or Represented
On Wednesday night Wm. Man-
son proved himself the man of the
hour, and the fit and proper person to represent Skeena District
in the Legislature. It was the
greatest gathering in the history
of the old town, and the Conservative candidate has received
congratulations on all sides, and
assurances of loyal support from
all parties.
Upon his return from a trip to
Telkwa and Aldermere, in company with Jas. Scott, of Prince
Rupert, Wm. Manson held a
meeting in the Assembly Hall
here on Wednesday night. The
hall was crowded to its utmost
capacity, in spite of the fact that
many additional benches had
been put in. The Conservative
candidate is always a big drawing card in Hazelton.
Besides Mr. Manson the other
three candidates were either
present or represented, and the
program of speeches provided a
splendid evenings entertainment.
The speeches of the opposition
were [confined almost wholly to
light criticisms, emphasized with
dramatic and comic poses and
motions. In short, it was nothing more or less than the Ins v.
the Outs. Mr. Manson delivered
a splendid address in defence of
the Government and the work it
had accomplished and the program that is now before the people
and in reply to the other speakers
he surpassed himself and put his
critics in the shade.
The meeting was somewhat
late in starting and Wm. Manson
was the first speaker. An invitation was extended to all the
candidates or their representatives to sit on the platform.
They were also allowed time to
air their views. The Conservative candidate occupied a little
over an hour in an able address
in support of the Government.
He took up the railway policy
which was first launched three
years ago and is now being extended, and along the same lines.

Fire Bugs at Nelson
(Special to the Herald)
Nelson, March 21. ��� Firebugs
are at work here again. There
has been three fires here this week
The one last night was undoubtedly an incendiary blaze and it
gutted the Yale Company's Sawmills. The loss was $80,000, but
it is covered by insurance. As a
result a hundred men will loose a
season's work. The company has
many million feet of logs ready
to cut if they rebuild the mill.
Two hours before the sawmill
fire a blaze was discovered in
Brackman Ker's warehouse, but
little damage v/as done, except to
the oats which were damaged by
water, and a C.P.R. box car on
the track was burned.
(Special to the Herald)
Vancouver, Mar. 21. ���Two des-!
peradoes, after holding up a
store in Bellevue, South Kelowna,
on Saturday succeeded in getting
away with seven dollars, but
were soon captured by Provincial
Constable Ashton who followed
them to Penticton which place
the robbers made on a raft and
then on to Vernon where they
were captured in the British Columbia Saloon.
After securing his prisoners
the constable took them on board
the steamer Okanagan, where he
locked them in a stateroom. In
the stateroom the constable was
overpowered by the desperadoes
who smothered him in blankets
and shot him in the head. They
then very cooly went out and into   the  dining  saloon and  had
breakfast and when the boat
pulled into Peachland they went
ashore and have not since been
heard of. Later on the purser of
the Okanagan was attracted by
groans from Ashton's room and
upon investigation found the
man in a dying condition. Ashton was taken back to Kelowna
where he is in the hospital and
not expected to recover.
The police are on the lookout
for the escaped prisoners.
Help for British Columbia
Special to the Herald
Vancouver, March 21. ���An Ottawa dispatch today states that a
subsidy of $12,000 per mile has
been granted the Canadian Northern Railway for the line through
the Yellowhead pass from Vancouver, a distance of 525 miles.
This subsidy was brought down
last night in the new governments first railway buget. There
are also $350,000 for the second
narrows bridge across Burrard
Inlet, and a long string of other
grants for new bridges and for
renewal of bridges.

Britain Supreme
(Special to the Herald)
London, March 21.���Winston
Churchill almost caused a panic
in the Commons on Monday during his speech on the naval program. He stated that Britain
had determined to outstrip Germany in the construction of warships. This has also caused a
sensation in Berlin and the German press is wild and the stock
exchange was excited.
Minimum Wage Bill
(Special to the Herald)
London, March 21. Asquith's
minimum wage bill has been introduced into the commons and
will receive its third reading today. It is expected that the
Lords will pass it on Saturday
and that it will receive the Royal
assent at once. It provides a
minimum wage for the miners
and affords protection to the mine
owners.

FRIDAY. MARCH 22, 1912
Wm. Manson the Choice
In spite of the fact that there
are three candidates opposing him
and that a bitter campaign is being waged against him, the election of Wm. Manson, the present
representative for the Skeena
district is safe. At the same
time it behoves every citizen of
this district to do his utmost to
get out the vote and to poll a big
majority for him. Mr. Manson
has been through this part of the
riding the past week and he has
met with splendid encouragement
on every side.
Wm. Manson has represented
Skeena district in a manner that
has been beneficial to the whole
district. He has secured large
appropriations every year for the
opening up and development of
the district, and every year the
appropriations have been increased, The present year a great
army of men will be working on
the roads building wagon roads
where trails existed before and
building trails through new districts. Nearly a hundred thousand dollars will be spent on new
bridges and rebuilding old ones,
and everything that will be done
in future will be of a permanent
nature. All bridges will be first
class and the new roads will be
built with the idea of making
them fit for travel at all seasons
of the year and for all classes of
vehicles. The day for the temporary road and bridge is now
passed. The north has been
opened up to such an extent that
its vast resources, hitherto only
slightly known, have been proven
and the north will be an important part of the province.
It is due in no small measure
to the efforts of Wm. Manson
that this country has been brought
to the attention of the provincial
government and it was also due
to his efforts that so much money
had already been provided for
Skeena district. He is without
doubt the best posted man in the
district and the best qualified
man to represent the district. He
is strong with the government
and can thus do more for the riding than can any other man. In
fact he is the only man that can
get for Skeena the necessary
assistance from the province during the next four years at least.
It is the duty of every man
who has the interest of the district at heart to vote for and to
work for Wm. Manson on Thursday next.
How to Train Boys
Away back in Ontario where
they boast of being thoroughly
modern in everything, including
the treatment of prisoners, and
the mentally weak, a great scandal has been unearthed by some
of the boys confined in the Mimico
Industrial   School.     Young boys
on their downward path, mostly
for want of better training at
home, are sent to the Industrial
school for varying periods to be
taught trades and to receive an
education under modern methods
and where the environments are
supposed to be the best. It appears that for slight offences the
! boys have been treated in a man-
I ner that would hardly be countenanced in Siberia. They have
been cruelly beaten on the bare
hide, handcuffed, chained, kicked and fed on bread and water
i for a month at a time and at the
same time confined in solitude
and shackled. Capital punishment is a capital thing, but the
half savage Siwash of the half
civilized north would not treat
his mangy dog as the cowardly
officials of Ontario's modern institutions are reported to have
treated the young boys.

THE LIBERAL PARTY
Asks Your Support On March 28th For
Alex M. Manson
The Liberal Party Stands For:---
Abolition of the Poll Tax.
Exemption of Improvements from Taxation.
A Readjustment of Taxation.
No Tax on Incomes of $2,000 or under.
Extension of Suffrage to Women.
Provincial Department of Labor and Free Labor
Bureau.
Complete Exclusion of Orientals.
A Comprehensive System of Industrial Insurance.
Extention of  "Workmen's Compensation  Act"
to cover all hazardous employment.
A minimum wage and eight hour day for government and government-aided work.
No public land for speculators.
Local Option Throughout the Province.
The Liberal party denounces the usurpation of
power by two members of the government
as being against the best interests of the
Province.
The Liberal party is against the present method
of controlling the liquor licenses which results in compelling all hotel men to do the
bidding of the controlling party's machine.
HAZELTON'S
BIG MEETING
(Continued from page 1)
Then he took up the appropriations for roads, trails and bridges
and showed how they had been
nearly doubled every year since
Hon. Wm. McBride assumed the
premiership. In 1904 the total,
appropriation for the province for
roads, trails and bridges was very
little more than what has been
appropriated to the Skeena district this year, viz.: $351,000 for
roads and trails and $88,000 for
bridges. While the district is a
very large one and an immense
amount of work is required,
Skeena district has been getting
a big slice every year and it will
continue to grow yearly.
Mr. Manson touched upon the
the timber and land policies, the
two big sources of revenue to the
province and he said that the land
policy is being improved and still
further improvements will be
made. The educational department is one of the main expenditures and the government was
increasing the grants to educational works yearly. The liquor
act has also been amended so
that the police will find it very
much easier to carry out their
duties than in the past.
To the Electors of Skeena District
I had intended at first to retire in the event of a
Liberal being nominated, but the dissatisfaction against
the ring rule within the Conservative party is so widespread that I think it only right that those Conservatives who cannot conscientiously endorse the candidature of William Manson should still have the privilege
of voting conservative, and I will therefore remain in
the field.
I have no quarrel with the McBride government and
will loyally support it, but I have a strong objection to
the great conservative party being made the tool of a
petty clique who use it merely for their own selfish ends.
Do not allow the ring to persuade you that Mr.
Manson is the only man whom the government will
recognize. We saw how Mr. Manson stood with the
government when a deputation was sent to Victoria
to press his claims for a cabinet portfolio. They would
have none of him and they had tried him before. If
elected I have no fear of receiving full recognition from
the premier, especially as I will have no personal axe to
grind, but will work solely in the interests of my constituents.
I ask every local Conservative who has the real interest of his party at heart to stamp out utterly on the
28th the ring rule which has cursed the party for the
last few years. Remember, if Mr. Manson is elected
the ring will claim a victory and it is useless to attempt
to dislodge it.    Yours faithfully,
WILLIAM BARRATT CLAYTON.

Dr. Clayton succeeded Mr.
Manson and he opened up with
fire works and the boys began to
think that there would be something doing. But the doctors remarks were punctuated with sarcasm and wit, and although he
claimed to be a fighter, it is
doubtful if he made any other
I impression than that of an entertainer. The doctor keeps the boys
in good humor but he also looses
sight of the fact that he is supposed to be talking business.

he made a powerful reply to his
critics and the critics of the
government. Mr. Manson was
never heard in Hazelton to better
advantage. He was not loaded
up with figures and details but
spoke straight from the shoulder
and knocked the props from under the other speakers.
Dr. Clayton attempted to get a
couple of extra minutes and although many were in favor of
granting it there was such a hubbub that the meeting adjourned.

New Hazelton
Every one of the visitors to
New Hazelton so far this year
have expressed their surprise at
the rapid progress that has already been made towards building up a town. Those who know
the difficulties the people have
been up against for the want of
transportation and supplies, consider the growth of the town as
remarkable. When it is remembered that last fall there was
scarcely a tree cut down, and
that at the present time there is
something like $50,000 invested
in buildings the visitors have
reason to be surprised. It was
last fall that the Northern Interior Land Co. had several blocks
cleared in the neighborhood of
the pay office of Foley, Welch &
Stewart. Immediately buildings
started going up and every week
since then has seen one or more
new structures started or completed, until to-day there is the
neucleus of a good little town
right on those few blocks that
were cleared in Sec. One. The
land there is high and dry and
easily drained and it is also on
the main line of travel from the
Bulkley Valley, to old Hazelton
and down the river. This section
is still growing and just as rapidly as ever.

The Presbyterians have circulated a subscription list among
the church members and adherents here and in a couple of days
they had secured $550. It is not
thought that there will be any
difficulty in securing all the
funds necessary to construct the
j church which will be located on
Eleventh Avenue.
Dr. Wrinch has been in town a
couple of times looking for a site
on which to locate an office building and he intends to shortly
start carpenters to work on the
building. The location will be in

upon yet.

Vancouver Sun says: ���
"The silver mines and other
mineral deposits in the vicinity
of Hazelton, as young prospects,
look better than anything in the
Kootenay and Slocan countries,"
declared Mr. Grant Thorburn, a
well known hotel man of Hazelton, who returned north on the
steamer Prince George last night,
after having spent five weeks in
this city and Seattle. He is
bound for the Skeena river district, where he has been connected with the Hazelton Hotel for
a couple of years, and is brimming over with enthusiasm for
the future of the district.
Mr. Thorburn has been in the
British Columbia and Yukon mining district for the past thirty-
three years, and is well able to
judge of the future prospects of
any mineral district. He was
1 with Major Rodgers when the
latter discovered what is now-
known as Rodgers' Pass, through
which the route of the C. P. R.
winds its way through the mountains. He spent a number of
years in Dawson and operated a
number of hotels in the Yukon
country. He was in the hotel
business in the Slocan country,
and when asked what he thought
of Hazelton as compared to Jthe
latter he announced the above
opinion,
"There is as fine a climate in
Hazelton as anywhere in the
world," he continued. "The
vegetables grown there compare
with any grown in California or
more southern districts. There
is an immense back country to be
filled up and the prospects in
most any line appear to be fine.
The biggest thing in sight, however, is the mineral of the Hazelton district. The silver lead
mines are showing assays which
are almost unbelievable and little
is known to the outside world of
what an extensive deposit of minerals lie in the hills a short distance from the river."
Contractors McHugh and Dan
Stewart were in town on Monday.

POULTRY DEPARTMENT
The Profitable Laying Hens
In figuring out the profit from
a flock of chickens one should
keep in mind the time when the
eggs were laid. If a great many
eggs were received during a
period when eggs were scarce
and high in price, it would not
take as many eggs to make a
good showing in dollars and cents
for each hen. The best market
poultrymen of today figure on
getting their hens to lay at a
time when eggs are high in price
and the demand is brisk. This
can only be accomplished by one
who has had experience. It
means years of work in planning
to do things just at the right
time.
The alive-to-the-fact poultry-
man realizes that the early
hatched pullets will start laying
at a time when the hens are beginning to let up and are starting
the molting process. Then the
heavy summer supply of eggs
begins to fall off and the price
begins to soar. The man who
has a few hundred hatched pullets will reap a harvest of high
prices right through the late fall
and early winter. It is not necessary to get the pullets hatched so
early that they will molt in the
fall, but get them out so that
they will mature and begin to
lay in October. Then through
November, December and January they will produce heavily,
catching the top-notch price.
Then there is another class of
birds   which    keep   on    laying
through the fall. They are the late
hatched ones of the previous year.
They have not laid during the winter to any extent, but begin along
in March. They will not molt till
late in the fall but will lay right
through the fall months with the
regularity of clock-work. When
the other hens have stopped laying and gone to molting the late
hatched birds will just be in their
laving prime. To be sure it is
better to send them to market as
soon as they show signs of molting, for it is hardly advisable to
carry them through the second
winter. It takes them a long
time to get their new coat of
feathers and very often they die
during the process on account of
the cold weather and a debilitated
condition. The molt is a drain
on any bird, and when it comes
in the winter time it is doubly
hard, for they cannot keep up
up the necessary bodily heat.
Keep them through the laying
period and then market them as
j soon after as possible.
The profitable laying hen is the
i one that makes but short inter-
j vals between the laying periods.
I Some hens will lay a dozen eggs
I or so and then stop for a couple
I of weeks before beginning again.
j Others will lay right along for
several weeks and then stop but
for a brief rest and begin again.
The trap nest will tell you the
' birds which lay the most eggs at
; a time and take the shortest per-
i iods of rest.    These are the hens
' to breed from and the birds to
keep for heavy egg production.
The writer has known of hens
that would lay a few eggs and
then wait a week or more before
laying again. The persistent
layer is the one that is wanted,
so make a selection and breed
from these.
There are some hens that will
lay a small egg day after day
and seem to make a business of
it. The small eggs are not
wanted by the merchants and
are hardly worth putting in a
crate of good ones. The few
small eggs in the crate spoil the
appearance of the whole lot. I
These birds are not profitable
and should be weeded out as soon
as you find out that they are lay-
ing these right along. The hen J
that lays the large, or abnormally
large egg is not a heavy producer
of such eggs. She will lay a few
of them and then stop for some
time. The hen laying a medium
sized egg for her breed is the one
that is the most practicable, tak- j
ing everything into consideration. I
All profitable egg producers are
good feeders.   They need a lot of
good  food  for this egg making ;
business, so you cannot expect!
even good hens from heavy egg
producing stock to lay eggs on a
scant ration.     Plenty   of  good
sound  grains should be given.
Green  food  and  meat in  some
form will be needed.    Sharp grit
to grind  the  food,   and   oyster
shells for the lime in  the shell
should  be   kept   before   them.
! Charcoal to sweeten and cleanse,
1 and an abundance of clean fresh
I water   should   be   ever   before
; them.   Keep these things in mind
i and act upon them and you will
, get the most from your birds at
I the time when the prices are the
highest. This will mean a better
showing for the hens, and more
profit for you as a poultryman.
Good Epaipment Pays
Increased facilities and good
management will make any
small plant a paying one. Many
times one tries to do work without the necessary equipment. A
carpenter might just as well try
to get along with but a saw and
a hammer, as for a poultryman
to endeavor to work with but
little or no equipment. Keep
the small plant as fully equipped
as the large one in proportion to
the work. You will find that by
having these various things to
make the work complete, you
will gain in results, and the returns will be greater than where
you try to get along with but few
things to work with.

Remedy for Gapes
(We insert the following clipping as it gives a very unusual
remedy for gapes, which is easily
applied, and is worth trying.)
The following is a simple and
infallible cure, a thing I have
known and used from boyhood,
and have never known it to fail.
It is tobacco smoke. I take the
chicken in my hand and take a
cigar (a pipe is just as good)
and when I get it well to going
I hold the chick's mouth open
and as it tries to inhale I blow
the smoke down its windpipe until it makes it very wobbly on its
feet, then let it go. Two treatments will cure the worst case I
ever saw. The smoke kills the
worms which may not be expelled
for a few days. A pipe and real
strong plug tobacco is the most
effective.

The first gun in the provincial
campaign was fired on Saturday
night when Dr. VV. B. Clayton of
Prince Rupert, the Independent
Conservative candidate held forth
in the Assembly Hall. Although
only a few hours notice was given
there was a good sized audience
and the doctor was given an at-
'' tentive hearing.
L. L. De Voin was appointed
chairman by the gathering and
I he introduced the speaker.
In opening the doctor spoke in
| high praise of the district in which
i we live.    It was his first trip up
i the Skeena and he is coming back,
I win  or loose.    He explained his
I reasons for entering the field as
ian independent, and also went
fully into the trouble in the party
in   Prince   Rupert.    His   strong
point was his declaration that he
was for Northern British Columbia and Prince Rupert all  the
time.   He thought that the present election  should  have been
deferred until after redistribution
when   the   district   of   Skeena
would have at least two members
and should have three.
Dr. Clayton is a good platform
speaker and he made quite an
impression upon his audience. On
Sunday he visited New Hazelton

The Ideal Climate
When it comes to weather,
climate and a real all round
health resort the Hazelton district is in a class all by itself. It
is the one place on the map
where the weather is consistent
and where all things work together for the good of the populace.
Hazelton is in the north, it is
true, and ninety-nine out of every
hundred people in seeking information first ask how people live
in the cold. The impression that
cold is the worst possible feature
is indeed a false one. Hazelton
has cold weather it is true, but it
is a cold that is beautiful. The
air is perfectly dry; there is no
biting, penetrating winds that
chill the very marrow in your
bones in spite of furnaces, heaters, etc. When it is cold it is
cold and nothing more. The sun
shines and the air is dry and still
and it is much easier to keep
warm here than to keep cool in
the south.
The past winter has been an
ideal one in every respect. In
December there were two snow
storms and over two feet of snow
fell making ideal sleighing. The
first two weeks of January were
cold and the thermometer acted
the some as it does on the prairies.
At the end of two weeks the
weather moderated and since then
there has been nothing but sunshine, warm days and frosty
nights. For two solid months
there was scarcely a cloud in the
sky, and it was very seldom that
even a gentle breeze was felt.
There has been no more snow
and what fell in December has
maintained the best of sleighing
until the past week when the
strong rays from the sun have
had its effect. Wheels are now
in general use and there will be
no more snow or cold weather.
The best evidence for the clim-1
ate obtainable is the fact that a
great many of the people here
have lived all winter in canvas
tents and they never suffered
from cold, storm or wind. It is
real Hazelton weather that will
surpass all others.

THE BUSINESS DISTRICT
_
v,
i
The best business property in every town is always some
distance away from the depot. This is the case in New
Hazelton.    Section One will be the Best Business Property.
The Hazelton people themselves have bought in Section
One and all who have started business in New Hazelton are in
Section One or just, across the line. Those who have planned
for early moving will be located in Section One.
The first Business District always remains a Business
District. It is next to impossible to move the district from
where it first started. It has started in Section One and that
Section is being Rapidly Built Up. The business will stay in
Section One and that is the place to buy.
The Northern Interior Land Company own Section One and
Section Three. The prices of lots are now as low as they will
ever be.    They are liable to advance any day.
Buy your Business Lots in Section One NOW. In another
year they will be more than doubled in price. This is your
opportunity. You missed Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton,
Vancouver, and other big western cities. Don't miss New
Hazelton. it is and will continue to be the distributing point
for the vast Northern Interior.
Prices of Lots Range from
$100 to $1200 each
These   Prices  are  only  good   for  a   short  time.

NEW HAZELTON
Section 2
Since the decision of the Board of Railway Commissioners making the future town at New Hazelton, the sale of lots, both here and in Vancouver,
have been away beyond expectations.
Nearly all of the Business Houses in the
Old Town of Hazelton have Secured Lots
And as the choice locations are being rapidly
picked up by outside people, those who had the
foresight to obtain the
best locations can consider
themselves fortunate as
we predict that in a very
few months some of these
will be worth three times
what has been paid for
them.
To you who have not
yet secured your lot let us
say:���This is the opportunity we have all been
waiting for���
- A UNITED TOWN -
Don't delay in securing
your lots as they are being
sold so rapidly that in a
week from now it will be
difficult to obtain a really
good location without paying someone else a profit.

Grant Thorburn returned from
his holiday in the south on Monday and he will be here all summer. He states that everything
is extremely quiet on the American side and that everyone is
complaining. The Canadian
cities are all good.
The people of the south who
are arriving here by every stage
and the papers of the south are
unanimous in their statements
that this vear will be the greatest in the history of the Hazelton
district. The continued fine
weather and the early opening
up of spring has had a tendency
to hurry the boys home and they
are now coming in bunches.
Capt. Bonser, who will run the
steamer Inlander from the end of
steel fo Hazelton is now in Prince
Rupert and preparing his boat
for the first trip.
Mr. Kergan,   of  Stewart was
here several days inquiring as to
the navigation facilities and it is
his intention  to put on   power
boats and large scows to handle |
the contractors freight and camp
supplies along Burns and Decker '���
Lakes.    These lakes offer a run !
of thirty miles along right-of-way.
He looks forward to a very busy
season.
�����
Bob Gerows boat will be here
in the course of a few days and
will be ready when the lakes are
open. All boats will do an enormous business owing to the fact
that the wagon road will not be
completed to Burns' Lake until
mid-summer and all supplies must
come down the Lake.
The new bridge is now finished
and is 766 feet in length with 60
ft. spans in addition to 968 feet
of cribbing. The well finished
work and short length of time
taken to complete the bridge
speaks well for Mr. McKinnon
and his able staff of assistants.

Duncan Ross was in town on
Tuesday after his trip to Bulkley
Valley where he is pushing the
work  on   his new contract.    He
says  that the sleighing in   the
valley is very good yet but the
first few miles out of town are
poor and the freighters are unable to take as heavy loads.    He
is  rushing supplies out  for his
camps but fears that he will noti
be able to get as much out as he I
would like until after the roads;
break up.    He  returned to  the
valley on Wednesday.
Mr. Vipert, supervisor of the
branches of the Union Bank returned from the valley on Tuesday and left this week for the
south. He was very favorably im-:
pressed with the country through
which he passed and looks for an |
immense business being done in'.
this district in  the  not distant1
future.    He  was also much interested in Telkwa and immedi-
diate surroundings and there is
every  reason  to  believe that a
branch   of   the    bank    will   be
opened there before the summer
is over.
"SPECIALS"
Mr. Sheehan, restaurant pro

from Wm. Gow and is building a

erected a large tent and will furnish the freighters and traveling
public from now on with meals
and beds at reasonable rates. He
has let a contract for several
thousand feet of lumber to be

ten dollars more per thousand
than Hazelton prices. Fresh
vegetables can be purchased here
in abundance at prices cheaper
than in the valley.
