After a Quest Lasting Five Years
A Mining Engineer Finds One.
No class of men are so nomadic as
the miner. Today he is in Nevada,
having come from Colorado, and tomorrow he will be in British Columbia r-nd
soon thereafter in Alaska or Mexico,
perhaps Australia. He is a sort of a
professional tramp whose home is the
world, says the American Mining Review.
A well known engineer was engaged
for five years in search cf a mine, and
finally found what suited him in the
North. In a letter he said: "I have
searched five years for a mine���traveled 12,000 miles in Mexico, nearly double
that distance in the United States, made
two trips to Australia, visited Peru,
Honduras and Venezuela, but could find
nothing that I thought worth while un
til I, by accident, stumbled across this
property (mentioning the mine he
bought). It was only a prospect, and
500 miles away in an unknown wilder
ness, and all I had to go by was a, few
pieces of ore rich in gold. It took my
fancy and I decided to investigate and
am pleased to say I think I made no
mistake."
Subsequent developments proved that
his judgment was correct. This quest
for a mine occupied years and exist
$35,000 for traveling expenses and the
incidental cost of investigation.
This story teaches a lesson. Some
engineers would become weary with
this globe-trotting existence, or would
begin to fear that their employers were
getting out of patience with them, and
might be persuaded to accept a property not up to their standard of requirement, in order to be able to say they
had found a mine. Not so, the engineer
above referred to. He knew what he
wanted and would be satisfied with
nothing short of what he considered
would "fill the bill."
RY. GRADES COMPARED
Grand Trunk Pacific Has Best on
the Continent.
Malta, November 25���The big liner
Sardinia was destroyed by fire shortly
after leaving here. One hundred passengers are missing and they are all
thought to have been drowned. Owing
th the intense heat of the fire and the
heavy sea running at the time, tug
boats were unable to approach close
enough to get n line to the burning vessel. After a long struggle tho tugs
finally made a line fast to the steamer
and hauled her aground. During the
panic on board the Sardinia, many passengers jumped overboard without life
preservers and were drowned.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway has
the most favorable grades of any transcontinental railroad, having a maximum
grade of twenty-one feet to the mile,
or four tenths of one per cent, against,
east bound traffic .and twenty-six feet,
or five tenths of one percent, as a maximum grade against west bound traffic
on the western division. On the eastern division thoy will have thirty-oni-
feet to the mile 83 their heaviest grade.
There is only one summit to be crossed,
the Yellowhead Pass, at an elevation
of 3,712 feet. The total amount of ascent will be, east bound, 6900 feet and
west bound 0890 feet.
As compared to the other transcontinental roads it is nothing. The C.P.R.
with two summits, has a maximum
grade of 237 feet to the mile on east
bound traffic and 116 feet on westbound
traffic. Total amounts of ascent are,
ea3t bound, 23,106 and, west bound,
23,051 feet to. the mile. The Great

LOCAL AND DISTRICT NEWS.
Wm. Bryan and J. A. Blume
were in town Wednesday.
Chas. Barrett is leaving for the
Diamond D ranch Monday.
.Ji<2m Broughton, of the firm of
Broughton & McNeil, Aldermere,
arrived in town today.
Wm. Hunter has gone to the
Bulkley Valley, where he will
work on the new bridge.
J. C. K. Sealy and Harvey
Crum returned from a five days'
grouse hunting trip the other day,
bringing some nice bird.
It is to be regretted that there
is no weather observatory in the
Northern Interior. Intending
settlers are as much interested in
weather conditions prevailing as
in any other one thing.
The mail canoe with Herb
Hankin in charge arrived at Kitselas on Wednesday. Owing to illness Herb secured another man
to take his place and remained at
the canyon. The mail left tr\e
canyon for Hazelton at one
o'clock the same (lay.
Through the Kindness of Manager Pratt of the new Ingineca
Hotel the people of Hazelton are
kindly invited to ah informal
dance next Tuesday evening.
The ladies will serve refreshments, and a very pleasant time
is anticipated. This will be the
first of a series of dances throughout the winter.
Adam Kammers, of Westlake,
Idaho, who has been in the district the past two or three weeks,
left Thursday in the mail canoe
down the river. He will go to
Idaho for the winter, and will return to this part of the country
in the spring with others from
his part of the state. According
to plaps they will settle in the
Francis lake district.
The Church Army, ant off-shoot
of the English Church, established by the late Bishop Ridley, and
an organization on the same general lines and with the same plan
of   worship   as   the   Salvation
Army, have branches at a number of places along the Skeena.
The Kiskagas branch of the order visited Hazelton a few days
ago for the purpose of a general
revival of religious spirit among
the Indians of the order in Hazelton.    Kiskagas   is   about  sixty
miles up the   river from here.
The Church of England at one
lime maintained a mission there
but it was discontinued, owing to
the decrease in the number of inhabitants at  that place.   Since
that time and without  a white
leader the Indians have maintained   their   religious worship,
and with what zeal is shown by
their Walking, to the number of
twenty-five or more, all the distance to Hazelton to hearten up
and convert their brethern. They
came into town in regular procession and with drum beating as
though their trip had been one
mile instead of sixty.   Services
were held each evening for several days, during which time it is
reported  some   converts    were
made; then in the same order in
which they arrived, and singing
hymns in the Indian language,
Rev. W. H. Pierce, of Kispiox,
was a visitor in town early in the
week.
Constable J. R. C. Deane expects to move into his new house
Tuesday next.
H. P. Jones was in town Wednesday securing'supplies and
tools for his building operations
at the Glacier House. Work is
now going on with four men cutting and hewing timber.
Mark Carr left Thursday for
the Bulkley Valley, where he will
start work on the bridge across
the Bulkley river just above the
town of Telkwa. His crew will
number eight men according to
the present plans and it may
take about two months to complete the bridge.
J. H. Davis of the Hazelton
Hotel lately received assay returns from the claims staked
last summer on twenty mile
creek and Bear river, in which
he is interested. The former assayed $98 in silver and lead; the
latter $25 in gold, two ounces, of
silver and two per cent lead.
Sample's were taken across a lead
lead varying from three to five
feet in width.
Robert Tomlinson left Hazelton
for Meanskinisht Tuesday. He
started on foot and expected his
brother Richard to meet him with
a canoe about twenty miles from
here. From Meanskinisht he will
shortly proceed to Port Chester,
Alaska, where his father now is.
Rev. Tpmlinson is taking the
place made vacant by the absence
of Rev. Duncan, whq is on an extended trip to England. Robert
will assist his father and also assume charge of the industries
connected with the mission at
Port Chester, or MetlaKatla, as
it was formerly KnoWn.
Pat McPhee, one of the Bulkley
Valley ranchers, was in town
Thursday, leaving, again Friday.
He is to be one of the bridge
crew at Telkwa, where he has
been engaged as blacksmith. At
his ranch he planted over one
hundred fruit trees last summer
and expects to plant a great many
more the coming spring. In the
orchard are to be found several
varieties of apple trees, and peach,
pear and plum trees. All the
trees are doing well and all that
remains now is for them to get
old enough to bear fruit to demonstrate what the Bulkley can do
as a fruit growing section.
LAKES DISTRICT
A Productive Country With Beautiful
Climate-Progress Being Made
By First Settlers,
In a New England village a
man lost a horse one day, and.
failing to find him, went down
to tne public square and offered
a reward of $5 to whoever would
bring him back, A half-witted
fellow who heard the offer volunteered to discover the whereabouts of the horse, and sure
enough, he returned in half an
hour, leading him by the bridle.
The owner was surprised at the
ease with which his half-witted
friend had found the beast, and
on passing the $5 to him, asked:
"Tell me, how did you find the
horse!" To which the other
made answer: "Waal, I thought
to mvself, where would I go if I
was a hoss; and I went there, and
he had."
The sale of 127 Provincial Government lots of fruit land at
Creston realized $58,797. This I
was for 1,640 acres.
(By Fred Heal, Jr.)
The Francis and Ootsa lakes
country may be roughly described'
as the country lying between the
125th and 127th meridian and ex-!
tending from about 10 miles north
of the 54th parallel of latitude to
about thirty miles south -qf the'
parallel, and containing about
3,000 square miles.
It is essentially a lake country,
for included in this area are Francis, Ootsa, Tahtsa and Ch^slatta
lakes, besides numerous smaller
lakes. The country may be generally described as composed of.
large and small rolling hills,
timbered with jack pine and
spruce, quite a considerable portion of which will be available for
agricultural purposes. In the
valleys and detached patches
along the lakes the land is most-
timbered with poplars, with considerable open land. This is the
country which is being taken up
at the present time.
Francis lake is a beautiful sheet
of water, lying between low hills
and being about seventy miles
long and averaging from one to
three miles in width. The lake
abounds in fish���char, trout and
a species of whitefish being in
abundance.
Some splendid patches of poplar land are to be found on both
sides of the lake, most of which
was taken up by the early pioneers. The soil is a rich black
loam, with a clay sub-soil, which
sustains an almost tropical growth
of wild grasses. These lands lie
well, with a gentle slope to the
lake, and are certainly the making of ideal homes.
Ootsa lake is another grand
stretch of water, lying from ten
to. thirty miles south of Francis
lake, and, like that lake, it too
lies between low hills. Ootsa is
about forty miles long and from
two to three miles wide. It has
a fine shore line and in most
places has a fine sandy beach.
Fish are as plentiful and of the
same variety as in Francis lake.
Quite a few deer are to be
found in the neighborhood of
both lakes; while bear���black ahd
grizzly���are numerous. Grouse,
ptarmigan, fool-hens, ducks,
geese and swan in season are
fairly abundant. Of the fur-
bearing animals, martin, lynx,
mink and beaver are found in
large numbers. The soil around
Ootsa lake is somewhat different
to that of Francis lake. In places
there is a rich black loam, while
in others the soil is very much
like a whitish silt. In every case
there is a clay sub-soil. The land
is partly timbered with poplars
and partly open, covered with a
rank growth of wild grasses.
The early settlers have taken up
most of tnis land. Between the
two large lakes are several small
lakes, around which is t<r ��be
found good land, and a little east
of the 126th meridian and be*
tween Ootsa and Francis lakel

"It may be said, without fear
of contradiction, that the powers
of radium have been vastly overrated," says a writer in the London Times. "Itself a most mysterious substance, we have yet to
learn the exact nature of the
changes which it undergoes.
Speculation on a most slender
basis of fact has played far too
great a part in the inquiries hitherto carried out with it. But as
to the changes it effects in other
bodies, the public may rest assured that the s}ubsta,n,ces supposed to have been formed by its
transmutation agency have been
the products of an unbridled and
fertile fancy, not of any chemical
change. It is to be hoped, in the
interests of science, and therefore truth, that in future guesses
may not be made public until
they have been transmuted into
facts."

DICKENS' LETTERS.
By a stroke of rare good luck,
some of the most important and
characteristic letters ever written
by Charles Dickens, the great
English novelest, have fallen into American hands. They have
just been printed by permission
of their owner, William T. Bixby
of St. Louis, and are creating a
veritable sensation in the literary
world. It seems almost incredible
that for three-quarters of a century so valuable a mass of literary
material should have existed apparently unknown, and certainly
inaccessible to Dickens' biographers. Yet such is the case. The
letters are equally important,
whether regarded as a key to
Dickens' character or his writings. They divulge nothing to
his discredit and can only enhance the esteem in which he is
held. His temperament is revealed as generous, impulsive and
impressionable. We learn for
the first time the details of the
all-absorbing love of his youth���
the one great love of his life.
And we also learn that "David
Copperfield" and "Little Dorrit"
are autobiographical in a much
more intimate sense than has
been supposed.
Mara Beadnell was the prototype of Dora in "David Copper-
field" and it would be difficult to
overestimate the influence she
exerted over the young novelist
"at a time," as he himself confessed, "when four year's are
equal to four times four." Dick-
I ens felt that he owed everything
j to her. "Whatever of fancy, ro-
! mance, energy, passion, aspira-
1 tion and determination belongs to
me," he wrote to her later in life,
"I never have separated and
never shall separate from the
hard-hearted little woman���you
��� whom it is nothing to say I
would have died for with the
greatest of alacrity. . . It is a
matter of certainty to me that I
began to fight my way out of
poverty and obscurity with one
perpetual idea of you.���Current
Literature.
The London Financial News of
of recent date gives an interview
with Hon. R. G. Tatlow, commenting thereon in a manner
highly complimentary to British
Columbia and her financial status.   It says:
The Hon. R. G. Tatlow, minister of finance, who is at present on a visit to this country,
h.ir. given a representative of the
Financial News some interesting
facts concerning the fair western
province, its productiveness, its
resources and its prospects. The
story of progress during the late
decade is a romance in figures
and striking facts. From 1906
to 1907 the balance of liabilities
over assets was a reduction in
the latter year of nearly $1,000,-
000, mostly in public debt. The
Hon. B. G. Tatlow is naturally
very jubilant over these results,
and predicts that the present
year, in point of receipts, will
equal, if it does hot greatly surpass, what has gone before. After giving figures showing the
receipts during the past five years
and detailing important items of
expenditure, he touched upon the
absorbing topic of work. "I am
glad," he remarked, with a confident smile, "that so far as public works are concerned, we are
able to devote a larger sum than
formerly. Last year we spent
.$854,135: for the present year we
have an appropriation of $1,053,-
540, and next year we propose to
spend $1,255,900, of which the
greater portion, $788,555, is for
roads, trails and bridges."
"I take it," remarked the interviewer, in an interrogative
way, "that public works are not
to be developed at the expense
of other departments; that due
regard is being paid to the agricultural prospects of the country ?"
The reply of the Minister was
that everything was being done
to foster the natural productiveness of the province. ' 'The progress made in that great industry
in 1907, was, all things consider
ed, satisfactory. A very late
spring, followed by dry summer
and, in some districts, unfavorable harvesting weather, contributed to reduce the average production : but, on the other hand,
there was a material increase in
the acreage under cultivation,
and prices ranged higher than in
former years; so that when the
returns are complete it is confidently expected that they will
show a total equal to that of
1906, when the estimated value
of the products of the farm,
ranch, dairy and orchard aggregated $7,500,000."
Upon the subject of the dairy
industry he was just as eloquent,
and his comments breathed an
optism  abundantly justifi id by
f j quoted figures. "'The output of
butter for the year from 13
creameries," he said, "amounted
to 1,651,305 pounds, valued at
$549,421, compared with 1,618,-
000 pounds, valued at $43,000 in
1906. The increase (32,000
pounds) seems inconsiderable;
but the higher prices secured
netted the patrons of the creameries ever $100,000 more than
they leeeived in 190G. It is estimated that the farmers' wives
and daughters contributed about
400,000 pounds, and adding that
to the output of tne creameries,
we have a total of oyer 2,021,304
pounds against 4,317,000 pounds
imported from other provinces
and foreign countries.
"The most gratifying fact in
connection with the fruit industry," he said, "is the increase of
the acreage of orchards and small
fruits. In the Kootenays, the
Boundary, Okanagan, the Lower
Mainland and Vancouver Island
new people are coming in, all po-
sessed of more or less capital,
and establishing themselves as
fouit-growers. The growth of
the fruit industry may be realized
from returns furnished by the
provincial fruit inspector. For
planting season of 1907 the number was, in round numbers, 1,-
500,000, and about an equal number was produced bv the provincial nurseries. This would represent the planting of at least 50,-
000 additional acres, and increases
the total fruit growing acreage
of the province to over 100,000���
a fairly good showing, when it is
considered that in 1901 there
were only 7,430 acres in fruit.
It should not require much exercise of the imagination to look
forward to a day when British
Columbia will bs one of the
greatest fruit producers in the
world."

INCORPORATED 1670.
FRANCIS AND OOTSA
LAKES DISTRICT
(Concluded from first page.)
there is a good piece of country.
Most of this land has been taken
up.
About 60,000 acres of land have
been taken up in this district, being acquired by scrip, purchase
and pre-emption, while considerable good land yet remains open.
The climate is splendid, both
summer and winter. The country
is well Water-ed and no irrigation
is riecessary. Severe winds are
not known, and considering
everything it will be an ideal
place in which to live.
At the present time there are
about seventy-live settlers in
the vicinity of Francis and Ootsa
lakes, and they are deserving of
much credit for what they have
accomplished so far. In the way
of public improvement they are
entitled to every encouragement
and assistance from the government. Without any financial aid
they have explored passes, built
trails, scows, etc., and at the
same time have managed to improve their ranches and grow
splendid crops of oats, wheat,
barley, timothy, hay, potatoes,
turnips, cabbage, carrots arid
other crops.
The most important question
today with the settlers Is the
transportation problem. They
have maintained themselves then
for over three years, have proven
the productiveness of the district
and ascertained what crops can
be grown there with the greatest
success, and now they want a
means of bringing in farming
mnchinery   to 1
prove their lanua, aim ai-au io en
able them to have produce for
sale during the construction of the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway.
However, their troubles seem to
be in a fair way to being remedied. The provincial government
has spent $3,500 toward making
sleigh roads into the country.
One route is from the settlement
on the north shore of Francis
lake, north to Burns' lake on the
Grand Trunk Pacific, a distance
of fifteen miles, thence following
the telegraph trail to Hazelton, a
distance of 140 miles. Eighty
miles of the road from Hazelton
south is built, leaving about 70
miles still to be completed to
Francis lake. This will follow a
settled country almost the entire
distance to Burns' lake. Two
thousand dollars has been spent
on the Francis lake end of the
road.
The other route will suit the
settlers on Ootsa lake and to the
south of Francis lake. The government has built a sleigh road
from the west end of Francis
lake east along the south shore
about twenty miles. From this
point the road will be extended
southerly to the settlement on
Oot3a lake. From the east end of
Francis lake the sleigh road will
be continued forty miles northerly to connect at Pleasant Valley
with the wagon road to Hazelton.
These two roads are absolutely
necessary in order to open up the
rich farming resources of the
Francis and Ootsa lakes district.
It will also give settlers along tho
routes a means to get in provisions
and farming machinery.
Representations are being made
to the government asking for the
completion of these pressing
needs next year, and the settlers
arc confident that necessary appropriation will be forthc . i   ,.
improvements      encouragement
would be given, not only to the
settlers there, but to incoming
settlers as well. The resources oi'
the country would be developed,
the wheels of progress would
move, and the district would be
occupied by contented homes.
AN EDITOR'S PRAYER.
An Arkansas editor attended
attended church recently and was
called upon to lead in prayer.
The response was as follows:
"Almighty and kind Father,
who dost from the throne look
down on the government of men
and del.inqi.ient subscribers; most
humbly do we beseech-Thee to
draw near unto them and whisper
a few things in their ears that the
statutes forbid us to print. Thou
knowest our wants but the subscriber knowest not, and seldom
stops in to inquire. Let it be
known to them there are largo
patches on the homestead of our
pants and that there is an aching
void in the front of our back and
that we hunger and thirstand he
asks us not to sup with him.
Thou, knowest that our print paper and ink cost money, but the
subscribers Knoweth it not and
careth a darn sight less. Thou
knowest that we are cold and the
subscriber bringeth not the wood
that he promised, and we are
shivering and shaking while he
roasteth his shins before a red hot
stove. Tell him al! these things,
and if he faileth and bringeth no
succor, banish him to the lower
regions to dwell forever among
the mossbacKs and thine shall be
the glory and praise throughout
our newspaper career..  Anion."
