HAZELTON,  B. G.   JUNE   21.   1912
EIGHT PAGES
THE TRAIL TO
GROUND HOG
The Only White Woman to Make the
Trip Gives an Interview on
Her Journeys.
One of the most interesting stories
that has yet been written on the trip
over the trail from Hazelton to the
Ground Hog coal fields is an interview
in Collier's Weekly with Mrs. Campbell-
Johnston, wife of the eminent coal mining engineer, and who is well known in
Hazelton. Mrs. Campbell-Johnston has
made the trip twice, and she is the only
white woman who has ever made the
journey, and probably the only one who
ever will travel over the trail to that
vast territory which means so much to
the entire Dominion of Canada.
Mrs. Campbell-Johnston is not only a
great traveller, and a heroine, but she
is also a clever writer herself. The
only fault with the story she has already given of her travels to the far
north is that it is far too short. No
doubt Mrs. Campbell-Johnston will later on give to the world further details
of her trips and of the country, possibly in a different form.
NEW HAZELTON WILL GET DECISION
EVIDENCE GIVEN FAVORS THAT POINT
Engineer Affleck, One of the Chief Witnesses at the Re-Hearing, Expresses His Opinion, After Hearing
the Whole Case==Not a Single Point Made by South Hazelton ���==Evidence for
New Hazelton Even Stronger Than at First Hearing.
Selling Out Sale
The Acme Clothing Co. have decided
to sell out the stock in the Hazelton
branch as quickly as possible. To get
rid of their goods they have put on a
sale. Their announcement will be found
in another column of this issue.
Although the wires have been :
down for several days, and word
was received here the first of the
week that the Railway Commis-
sion would hand down its decision |
on Tuesday, no word has yet been
received. However, Engineer
Affleck arrived in town yesterday
about noon, having walked up
from the bridge. He was one of
the chief witnesses at the hearing on June 4th, and has just
come from Ottawa. He stated to
the Herald that in his opinion
there can be no other decision
than a confirmation of the decision of the late Judge Mabee.
The evidence at the second
hearing was all in favor of New
Hazelton. South Hazelton did
not score one point. For instance:
As a place to put the town, the
two places were equal; as a place
to serve the north country, both
places were equal; as for amount
of money invested it was over-
whelmly in favor of New Hazelton; for the number of people effected it was in favor of New
Hazelton; for the number of people residing there it was all New
Hazelton, as there is no one at
South Hazelton and not even a
shack; as a place for the mines
TO HAVE BETTER
FREIGHT SERVICE
Steamer "Inlander" Will Deliver Two
Hundred Tons a Week���Port
Simpson is Coming
THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS
PILED UP IN TWO BIG CRIBS
The freight situation in Hazelton is
looking very much brighter this week,
and there is not likely to be any more
trouble. Tha Inlander will bring in
two hundred tons of freight each week
for Hazslton and district. This amount
will carry the town along very nicely
for some time, and in two or three
weeks all trace of a congestion of up-
river freight at Prince Rupert and
Vancouver should be wiped out.     The
; Bulkley Valley people will require from
two hundred to four hundred  tons  of
j freight between now and the close of
navigation.
The    Hazelton    merchants   are   not
, planning to stock any winter goods before the boats stop, as there is no doubt
to ship from, all the miners were
for New Hazelton.    About half
the names submitted to the Com- ���
mission from old Hazelton,  expressing opinions, were for New,
Hazelton.
Mr. Affleck also said that the
engineers for South Hazelton admitted that it was impossible, j
under present conditions to put a
station at that town, and that
the hill side would have to be
extended 250 feet, and an enormous fill made, and that the
grade of the entire road would
have to be altered for a distance
of four miles.
It was clearly shown that both
the railway and bridge engineers
engaged to give evidence for
South Hazelton knew nothing
whatever about the country, and
once they got away from then-
profile they were at sea.

POST OFFICE
FACILITIES
Hazelton Wants More Clerks to Handle the Mail and also a Daily
Service to New Hazelton
While Post Office Inspector Fletcher,
Vancouver, was in town this week a
committee from the Board of Trade
waited upon him and placed before him
a request from the Board of Trade for
better post office accommodation here.
The committee asked for two more
clerks in the local office and pointed out
the necessity for them. The mail matter for this town and district has increased to such an extent that it is utterly impossible for one clerk to handle
it with any dispatch.
The committee also asked for a mail
service to Ground Hog coal fields. That
district ia increasing its population very
rapidly and even at the present time
there would b< a great deal of mail
matter for that country if the people
knew that they could get it.
A request was also made for a daily
mail service to and from New Hazelton. That town is growing in importance, and as there are two stage lines
running daily trips it would be a very
simple matter. At present New Hazelton gets mail only twice a week, and
the people there are put to great inconvenience.
Mr. Fletcher heard the requests of
the committee, and he will report to
the department.

is just as unusal to see three hundred

with his own eyes. On the north side
of Glen mountain, overlooking the beautiful Kispiox Valley, is the Silver Standard mine which is owned by a syndicate I
of contractors and sub-contractors connected with the construction of the j
Grand Trunk Pacific.
About two years ago this property
was bonded from Geo. McBean by J.
W. Stewart, Angus Stewart, D. McLeod, A. L. McHugh and others, and

to a depth of 130 ft. and off to one side
I were two ore bins filled with  the precious ore and a third bin had been started.
In the two bins were at least 150 tons
(all :>re) and it is doubtful if even a
small sample could be found in the two
bins that would assay less than $150 a
,ton. Lots of samples could be picked
uii that would run $000 to $800 a ton.
Hut a fair, or a conservative estimate
of the entire pile would be from $250 to
$800 a ton. This should give a net re-
i turn of at least $20,000or $25,000. That
is making money pretty fast, and especially when it is remembered this
shaft is only a prospect hole and is being sunk for development purposes
This does not include the 100 tons of
ore taken out of the snaft last year
and which is equally as valuable.
It is the intention of the company to
continue the shaft to a depth of about
200 feet and then they propose to start
a tunnel several hundred feet down the
hill to cross-cut this big vein, and to also cross-cut the three other veins lower
down the hill and that have not yet been
opened up. Phis tunnel will be the main
working tunnel and will enable the
owners to operate on a grade with the
government wagon road. From this
point they have almost a down hill pull
all the way to New Hazelton, the pcint
where the owners propose doing their
shipping. It may be that later the company will build a wagon road from the
Nine Mile wagon road a distance of a-
bout one mile to connect with the mine
on the south side and then drive a tunnel from that side. By this means all
the nine veins on the property would be
cross-cut and ready for working. The
Nine Mile road would also be shorter |
and more direct to the railway.
Comparing the showings on Silver
Standard with the showings made in
other camps in the early days, the Silver Standard is in a class by itself. The
great silver lead properties in the Couer
d'Alenes were over two years before
they produced the ore or showed the
strength of the ore body that is now exposed on the Silver Standard. Th.*
Standard Mine in the Cour d'Alenes
was operated four years before it occupied the position that Silver Standard
does today. In short Silver Standard
is    making   new records   every   day.
isfied to tunnel instead of sinking.
There are several veins on the Surprise
and it is expected that the tunnel will
cut them all.
As a starter the tunnel will only be
driven about 150 feet when the first
vein should be exposed,
rapidly nearing completion. The ground
is ideal stuff to break and the boys are
making progress at the rate of four feet
a day. At the present rate it will be
only a few days until the first ore body
is struck. Mr. Cameron has received
word that C. D. Rand and others interested in the property will visit Hazelton
in the near future.

The Methodist Conference in London,

the Methodist farmers to grow tobacco.
In the Chatham district tobacco is one

some of the Methodist farmers thought
it was wrong and they induced the London conference to "make itself heard."

Supt. Haskins is not only taking out
enough ore to Ipay the cost of sinking,
but paying it several times over.
As a location for mining purposes
Silver Standard is ideal, It is close to
transportation with a down grade and
an easy grade all the way. It is easily
approached and close lo town. It is the
heart of a magnificent country with
scenery that would fill a landscape artist with envy. Numerous little creeks
supply ample water for all domestic
; purposes and the hill is covered with the
I best class of wood. On a little bench
about half way up the hill is located the
camp where the men spend their idle
I time. It is a very attractive spot and
j is just in front of the camp where it is
proposed to start the new tunnel, 'the
camp itself is of the best. The bunk-
house, the cook's reserve, the superin-
' tendent's office, and the stable are substantial, and very comfortable. The
cook is of the first water and three
times a day the men sil down to a
repast that would tempt ihe cronic dis-

stranger are also made welcome, and
they leave feeling that there are more
bright spots in life than hitherto met

across the Bulkley River was
proven to be decidedly in favor
of the site at Haguelgate, as that
was the only place where a grade
could be maintained. The initial
cost of the bridge would be a little more than farther down the
river, but the latter site would J
have heavy grades.
Mr. Affleck's story is decidedly
in variance with the reports that!
were wired to the coast papers,
which, he said,  appeared to be |
deliberately garbled.
G. U. Ryley was in the witness [
box, and in the cross-examination
he was made to admit that the |
only reason his company had
adopted South Hazelton was because they got half the lots free
and that the New Hazelton owners refused to give his company
that concession.

HAZELTON MINING DOPE
T
F. A. Brown has taken an option on
the five claims staked last week by
R;dsdale and Gore on the Morrice River,
and is going out this week to look them
over.
On Sunday F. A. Brown came over
from Rocher de Boule and reported that
they had run into eight feet of solid ore
in the winze being sunk from the Pemberton tunnel. There have been a
large number of interested visitors to
the property the past week or two.
On Tuesday Duke Harris packed up
the camp outfit for the men who will
get on Hazelton View Group of four
claims on Rocher de Boule mountain,
End which adjoin Rocher de Boule mine.
The upper vein on the big property runs
into the Hazelton View group and the
boys propose to drive a tunnel on their
claims to tap that vein.
Messrs, Martin, Sargent, Halleran
and Thompson returned on Saturday
last from the Bear River country where
they spent a few days doing assessment
work. They had intended doing considerable development work but the
weather turned very bad and they came
back and will shortly go over to their
Rocher de Boule property.
Jas. Dyer, a pioneer of the Rossland
camp, and who also has an interest in
the Dyer-Stephenson property on Four
Mile Mountain, arrived in town on Sunday last and spent several days on the
property doing assessment work. He
leaves this week for Kitsumkalum
where he is also working a property.
The drift on the vein from the shaft
on the Harris mines is now in 120 feet
and the ore remains the same as previously reported. The boys are satisfied
so far and have decided to start sinking
again on the main shaft and continue it
down to the 200 foot level when they
will run another drift. The shaft is
now down 137 feet and to complete it
will take about five or six weeks.
R. G. Steele, of the Hudson's Bay
Mountain Mining Co., arrived last Thursday and reports everything in good
shape at the mine. At first they had a
hard time to get in on account of the
trail being bad, but they put several
men to work for some days and now
have a good road up to the properly.
The tunnel has been started and Pete
Schuffer, who has the contract, is breaking ground fast.
The samples of the ore brought in
from Morrice River last week by Messrs.
Ridsdale and Gore have created considerable interest in that district among
the old prospectors, a great many of
whom came into town after the Herald
was published, and who first learned
of the strike through the columns of
this paper. One of the best known
prospectors stated that if the boys had
as many veins, and if the veins were
the size the boys say, there is nearly
enough ore there to keep a small smelter going.
Dr. Clement of New York, and Mr.
De Bois, two mining experts who have
been in the district for a couple of
weeks or more, have just returned from
a trip to the Telkwa Mountain district,
where they went over Mr. Clarke's
property. They are preparing a report
on it for New York capitalists, and all
they could say at the present time was
that they were favorably impressed.
On Thursday morning they went down
to Skeena Crossing in company with
L. L. DeVoin, and then visited Rocher
de Boule. After that they returned
down the river. Mr. DeBois expects to
come back to Hazelton in the near
future.
R. P. Trimbell, of Portland, Ore., j
returned to Hazelton on Sunday night
last and will remain in the district for
the balance of the season. He has several propositions in the mining line to
look into as soon as he can get around
to it. He is open to consider any good
mining propositition that is offered and j
he is prepared to go ahead with the development at once. Mr. Trimble is
known to every one in the district
through his connection with the Rocher
de Boule property which he and Mr.
Pemberton developed to such an extent
that they were able to turn it to the
first big outfit that looked it over, and
the turn was a decidedly favorable one
to themselves. Mr. Trimble will be
welcomed to the district and it is hoped
that he will soon get hold of something
that will meet with his approval.

After spending a few weeks in the
district and being successful in locating
a property on Nine Mile mountain
which is very promising Jas. C. Nation
and A. D. Wooler returned to Vancouver
this week. The boys located several
claims just southwest of the Harris
Mines and they have already done considerable work on it. They have thus
far been working on a small vein of
grey copper and galena which appeared
like a knife blade on the surface, but
which has widened out to six inches
within fifteen feet. Mr. Wooler has
been prospecting for the past twenty-
nine years and he says that he thinks
more of this country than any other district he has been in. He is well satisfied with the property they have located
on Nine Mile and they will be back here
again as soon as he completes some
work on a property on Vancouver Island, this will be about the first of
August.

POULTRY DEPARTMENT
Fresh Air For Chickens
We consider fresh air so important
that we make ample provision for furnishing it in abundance for the chickens
from the time of the first brooding.
When chickens are hatched and brooded
by hens, the natural instinct and habits
of the hen lead her to keep the chicks
in the open air most of the time, and it
is this that gives them health and vigor.
And when we brood them artificially,
we endeavor to conform as nearly as
possible to nature's methods.
In the early stages we keep our
chicks in low brooder coops, the inside
covers of which are sliding frames covered with wire and a cheap grade of unbleached muslin, the latter being removable. The roof, when lowered, never
closes down snugly on the sliding frame,
as the coop is so constructed that there
is at least half an inch space at each
end, thus providing for good ventilation.
But except in a hard storm, or severe
cold weather, the edge of the roof is
left at least two inches up at the front,
even at night, and during pleasant days
and often in summer nights, it is left,
wider open.
But after the chickens are about two
months old, we transfer them to a higher coop, where they have more air
space, and we find the adjustable coop
ideal for housing them from that time
to maturity.
These coops are three feet by six ft.,
and one half is enclosed with solid sides
and end, and has a board floor. The
other half has movable muslin covered
slides on both sides, inside of which are
small mesh wire screens. One or both
of these muslin slides can be opened,
making a little park in which the chickens are sheltered from the weather, and
yet where they can virtually live out
doors when the weather is favorable.
And when it is necessary to keep both
slides closed, there is plenty of fresh
air for the chickens.
There is nothing that will sap the
vitality and check the growth of young
stock more surely than confining them
in poorly ventilated quarters, either
large or small. And they need fresh
air at night as well as during the day.
People are coming to realize such a
necessity for themselves, and are open
ing the windows of their sleeping rooms
both winter and summer, and when
sufficient covering is provided, there is
no danger of taking cold.
So with fowls, especially during the
period of rapid growth, their sleeping
quarters should be so arranged that
there will be plenty of fresh air in constant circulation, though no drafts should
blow on them, through cracks and crevices. It is to the fact that we have always furnished plenty of fresh air for
our growing chicks that we attribute
their perfect health and great vitality.
each year, that it is possible to build up
a constantly improving strain.
Now and then there is a bird that is
so far behind the others that it is hardly
worth while to bother with it, and all
those with positive defects are used for
the table, and in this way there is no
possibility of passing on their defects to
another generation.
There are some that have no disqualifications, but that are a little slow in
their growth. It is worth while to put
a few of these by themselves where
they can have more attention and where
they will not be overborne by the larger
and stronger ones. Some of them, under such care, develop into fine
specimens. This is especially true of
some cockerels that at first seern rather
poorly proportioned. But if they have
good breeding back of them, it is well
to keep them and give thjm some extra
care, for they are quite likely to fill out
and round up into handsome birds.
Studying the Birds as They Grow
The careful poultryman will watch his
birds from day to day in order to note
the peculiar characteristics of each in-!
dividual. In our own plant this is one
of the things about which we take especial pains. I see the birds, somewhat
hurriedly, three times a day, and try to
take note of everything, but Mrs. Cox
studies them with great care every day,
and nothing escapes her attention.
Every chicken soon comes to be an in-'
dividual to her, and she keeps well posted as to their growth and development,
ln some eases there is a marked superiority of one or m:>re specimens in each
lot. Here is a cockerel that is taking
on the special points that betoken an
unusually good bird. He has the correct sweep of tail, the fine arch of neck
the proper breadth and depth of body,
short legs, bright eye, and the movements that indicate vigor. Here is a
pullet that is showing up well. She is
graceful and beautiful in every respect,
and gives promise of developing into an
almost perfect specimen. These are the
birds that will repay the best care and
attention we can give them, for it is
from these choicest specimens, selected

writing, March 25th, as the ground is
thickly covered with snow as the result J
of two  storms  during  the last three |
days, but by the time this paper reaches its readers, warm weather will be in
sight, if not actually here.
Much has recently been written as to
the necessity of providing shade for all
fowls, and especially for growing chicks
but from an inspection of many poultry
plants it is evident that more needs yet
to be said.
Sunflowers planted close to the coops
will give some shade, and if pole beans
are planted near them, the vines, twining around the sunflower stalks, will
thicken the shade. But if you do not
provide living shade, you can make
light frames of various sizes, and cover
them with muslin, and adjust them in
different places and positions so that the
glare and burning of July and August
sun can be somewhat tempered, and the
chickens made comparatively comfortable even during hot weather.
Fresh, cool water must be frequently
provided for all fowls, both old and
young, they will enjoy it, and they need
it. Do not think because there is water
before them, put there several hours
before, that they do not need ? new
supply. Go out with a bucket of fresh
water, and see how eagerly they will
crawd to get to it, and you will then be
convinced as to what is the right thing
to do.
