(Special to the Herald)
Vancouver, April 25. ��� Lord
Mersey has been selected to conduct an inquiry into the wreck
of the Titanic on behalf of Great
Britain. Lord Mersey was formerly Justice Bigham, president
of the Admiralty Divisional High
Court, and he has had a long expert training in shipwreck inquiries.
The United States inquiry,
which is now in progress, indicates a lack of precaution on the
part of the White Star Company.
Capt. Smith's record is apparently clear and he is not being
connected with the wreck. Major
Puechan, of Toronto, who commanded one of the life boats
after the disaster, makes sweeping charges of inefficiency of
equipment and sailors. He says
there was no boat drill, and very
little discipline.

sighted, said that he could have
seen the ice in time to have
saved the collison had he been
furnished with binoculars. He
had asked for them some time
previous but had been told that
there were none available.
There is considerable criticism
at the inquiry regarding the
supression of cables by the White
Star Company, and also of their
efforts to ship the seamen back
to England before giving their
testomy. Vice President Franklin and Bruce Ismay both deny
any attempt to supress the evidence. Ismay is criticised for
his attempt to hold the Cedric
for his return to England, and
he is generally very unpopular.
The cable ship MacKay Bennett, now on her way to New
York, has picked up sixty-four
bodies. Some were buried at
sea and others have been embalmed.
See Page Three for the Survivors Story.
EXTENDING THE
TELEPHONE LINE
Returning from their trip to'
the south A. L. McHugh and An-
gus Stewart arrived in New Hazelton on Monday afternoon and
on Tuesday morning in company
with D. McLeod, went out to Sil-
ver Standard mine. They returned to town that night and
stated that they were more than
pleased with the way the ore is
staying with them and also with
the progress of the work. They
got there just after a round of
holes had been fired and when
they went down into the shaft
the ore was glistening for a width
of two feet or more and right
across the bottom of the shaft.
The ore is carrying big values in
grey copper and will run several
hundred dollars to the ton. They
brought some fine samples down
with them. Mr. Stewart pre-
diets that there will be a lot of |
good mines in this district and
his enthusiasm is increasing as
the development work proceeds.
Chas. S. DeVoin Dead
Loul Telephone Line Will Connect
with Harris Mines, Silver Standard and Other Mines
As the development work on
several of the mines on Nine Mile
and Glen Mountain is growing
and the miners employed is on the
increase the superintendents find
it difficult to come down to town
every time they have a little
business to look after. To overcome this inconvenience, arrangements have been made to extend
the telephone line. Messrs. Slinger & Ayerde have ordered the
new wire and they will get the
poles ready so that it can be
strung as soon as it arrives.
L. L. DeVoin received word
yesterday morning of the death
of his uncle, Chas. S. DeVoin, at
Pond Du Lac, Wis., on March
10th. The deceased was awakened by fire in his building and
went up on the roof to extinguish
the flames which he succeeded in
doing with the assistance of his
wife. The fire chief warned him
of his dangerous position and advised him to get off the roof.
Mr. De Voin obeyed the warning
and while getting down the ladder
he fell from the roof to the ground
Death was due to shock.
Sold His Kispiox Farm
Jas. Short has disposed of his
144 acre farm in the Kispiox Valley to Chas. Pierce who has been
employed at the Interior Saw
Mill all winter. He has on his
new property about 20 acres under cultivation and he intends to
clear a lot more and get it ready
for next spring crop. This week
he received a fine big team of
horses for the farm. Mr. Short
is locating on some property on
Two Mile creek near the government road and will establish a
poultry farm to which he will
devote all his attention in future.
The large tract of land across
the Skeena river from old Hazelton will very shortly be divided
into small garden tracts and put
on the market. J. H. Kugler
and associates have purchased
936 acres, together with Capt.
McPhatter's land and it will be
known and sold as Hazelton
Gardens. Capt. McPhatter has
had part of his land under cultivation for a couple of years or
more and it has proven very satisfactory for garden truck. The
land all lies well for that branch
of agriculture. It has a frontage
on the Skeena river for two
miles.
In addition to this large block
the same parties will put on a
large tract of land just above
town in the Kispiox valley to be
known as the Kispiox Forty Acre
Farms.
Near New Hazelton and on the
same side of the river another
tract of land will be put on this
summer in five and ten acre lots.
These small farms will all be
devoted to small fruits, vegetables, poultry and other lines of
agriculture that will prove profitable. That there is a great demand for them is evidenced bv
the fact that already a great
many people are enquiring for
small farms and garden tracts in
this vicinity, and there will be a
great many people here this summer to look over this land. Mr.
Kugler is now getting out his
literature and preparing for the
campaign.

BUILDING FERRY
TO CROSS BULKLEY
General Strike Threatened
(Special to the Herald)
Kansas City, April 25.-The
Federation of Railway Employees
in convention here today sent a
message to President Taft asking
for intervention in the Harriman
railway strike, and in case of
failure they threaten a general
strike of 300,000 members of the
Federation spread over the entire
west.
Local Citizens Subscribe Funds���Ferry
will be Ready for Service in a
Couple of Weeks
As a result of the action of the
Board of Trade in appointing a
committee to take up the matter
of a ferry across the Bulkley
river, a charter for which was
held by R. S. Sargent, a fund
has been established and the contract awarded for the ferry.
Citizens subscribed liberally and
it was not long until this much
needed means of transportation
was underway. The contract
was awarded to Warop and Brown
I The cable is here and very soon
j the old town will be in close
touch with the railway side of
the river. This will be a great
convenience to the stage lines
and for teamsters as weil as citizens travelling up and down to
Skeena Crossing.
Tennis Club
A Tennis Clnb with an exclusive membership is being organized this week. The grounds will
likely be adjoining Harris' house
and some of the boys were up
last night sizing the place up.
There will be room for two courts
and the grounds will not require
much fixing.
Wm. Steele, deputy mining recorder at Manson creek in the
Omineca district, arrived in town
on Monday night and has been
renewing old friends. Mr. Steele
is in partnership with Jack Mullen and they hold several very
valuable placer leases in the
Omineca. Part of these holdings
they have disposed of to Mr.
Bowen, of Seattle, who will go
into the country this summer as
soon as the boats start to run and
he will take in with him several
men and a hydraulic plant worth
some $25,000. During the summer Bowen will prove up the
ground and get a line on the
values and install the plant and
have everything ready for a big
season next year.
Mr. Steele is hurrying back to
the Manson creek country and
the Lost creek ground. On the
latter he and Mullen have taken
a couple of leases and intend to
work them this season. They
jare confident that they have the
channel and if true they will
clean up a bunch of money before
fall, as '-veryone who has found
the channel on the Lost creek has
taken out big values. They have
several other leases in there
which they will either work or
sell this season. Mr. Steele says
that the Omineca is coming into
its own this season. The class of
men who are going in are men
with money and who intend to
work the ground properly. This
rush is no wild aimless rush of
over forty years ago. Every time
a lease is taken or a sale is made
the money is paid down, and the
new people are taking in machinery as fast as they can get it
there. In another year there
will be great values taken out of
the Omineca. The ground is
good and there is lots of it.
Before he left Mr. Steele says
that Mr. Otterson and party had
i arrived saf ?ly and that they were
now making great headway on
the season's work. They have
opened up a drain which will give
them better lifting power. They
have three half mile leases on the
lower Manson creek and they are
well satisfied with them. In fact
one shareholder is so pleased that
he has invested several thousand
dollars more in the stock of the
Manson Creek Hydraulic &
Dredging Co. and he wants more
but cannot get it. Mr. Otterson
had an Indian hauling pipe from
Germanson creek, some eighteen
miles, all winter and he has got
it all on the ground now. The
water is running through their
ditch and they expect to start
piping about May lst.
C. L. Lowe, who was one of
Otterson's party, is working with
them, but he is also looking after
some five claims on Boulder creek
a deal for which he has on with
Bowen of Seattle, who will be in
very soon now.
The   Royal   Standard   Invest
ment Co., of Vancouver, have 8
or 9 leases on the lower part of
Germanson creek which they will
start work on this season. As
soon as the boats start they will
bring in a hydraulic plant and
send a large pack train out from
town with supplies. Operations
will be started a little later in the
season and will be continued all
winter. Next season will be the
big season for them.
H. M. Beach, of the Kildare
Co., will be on some time in July
and he will bring a mining: engineer with him for the purpose
of devising a scheme for increasing the water power on their
Slate creek property.
Dr. Stanwood, of Los Angeles,
and his partner Stanley Green,
who went in with Otterson this
spring, is more than pleased with
the country and he intends to remain there all summer. He states
that there will be immense money
made in the Omineca, not only in
the placer diggings but also in
quartz mining. All that is needed now to bring the quartz properties to the fore is the prospect
for better transportation. Mr.
Steele states that in the past it
has been so hard to get in and
out and so little likelihood of a
road or railroad that one never
looked for quartz. The fact remains, however, that there is
free milling gold and in large
bodies. He looks for the Omineca
to be as great a quartz mining
camp as the Hazelton district is,
and he is more than surprised
with the development that has
been done here since his last
visit.
After four years of constant
application to his work in the
Omineca country and particularly
around Manson creek, Wm. Steele
arrived in town on Monday
night and spent a few days here
on business and then returned
to the big gold country. It is
now ten years since he saw salt
water and it is fourteen years
since he went into the country.
He has seen an automobile once
and then at a considerable distance so that when he goes down
to Vancouver and other cities in
the south and east next fall he
expects to have a great time
catching up with modern civilization. Although away from the
din of city life for so long Mr.
Steele is up-to-date in many respects and one of the most interesting conversationalists one
would wish to meet. He has
spent his time in the gold fields
and he has made a study of
them. What he does not know
about the Omineca country
would not take a long time to
learn. He expects now to return
here in the fall and take a run
out for the winter. He has
'��� worked hard and faithfully and
| his reward is near at hand. After
this season it is not likely he will
] need to worry about a job again. THE OMINECA HERALD, FRIDAY, APRIL 26, 1912

HORTICULTURE
Raspberries
To obtain the best results, a
deep soil, well drained and with
a large moisture holding capacity
is desirable. In the Coast districts where the humidity is high,
it is advisable to obtain a site
with a sufficient slope to give
good air-drainage.
The same method of preparation of the soil as given to strawberries is applicable here. Deep
cultivation and ploughing is advisable before setting out a
patch, especially on the heavier
soils.
Propagation. The roots of a
raspberry are perennial, so the j
general method of obtaining!
plants is to dig up the one-year-
old plants from the bearing
patch. It is also possible, sometimes, to use the suckers and replant them the same Spring in
which they start, especially if
weather and soil conditions are
favourable.
Planting. This is done in the
Fall or Spring, depending on the!
district, the condition of the
land, and the grower. The
planting distance depends on the
variety, type, and condition of
soil and the district, so that no
distances which would be satisfactory for all sites can be given.
As a general rule the rows are
six to eight feet, apart, and the
plants set at eighteen inches to
two feet in a row. They require
pruning before setting in the
same way as a one-year-old apple
tree, i.e., roots trimmed and top
cut back. Plant about three to
five inches deep, depending on
the soil, spread the roots, and
pack the earth well round them.
Training.     It is found advantageous to support the vines with
a trellis.     This is generally done
the second  or third  year.     To J
accomplish   this   posts   are   set
thirty feet] or so apart with a I
cross-piece   at   the   top   which)
should be about three and a half
feet from the ground, on which I
two  wires are strung,   one   at'
either   end  of   the   cross-piece,
Within this space the vines are
kept upright,  bringing the plantation into better condition  for
cultivation   and   other  cultural
operations.
Pruning. Fruit is borne on
the one-year-old wood, so that
in pruning, all canes that have
borne fruit are removed, and the
remainder thinned out if necessary. The best time to prune is
immediately after the fruit is
picked, as by leaving the old
canes they form an unnecessary
drain on the plant food and soil
moisture. The taller of the new
canes should also be pinched or
cut back at that time so as to
strengthen the bearing shoots
for the following season.    They
Meets second Tuesday of
each month at 8 P. M. at
Hazelton Town Hall.   -:-

COMMITTEE OF SURVIVORS
ISSUE DETAILED ACCOUNT
Of Sinking of the Titanic���Amid Deep Hush that Encompassed
Throng Gathered at Pier as Carpathia Creeps into Port
st
New York, April 18.���In a
drizzling rain two hundred and
fifty policemen gathered early
tonight at the Cunard line piers
at West Fourteenth street and
North river, preparatory to handling the crowds.
Inspector McClusky was in
charge of the squad, and ropes
dotted with green lights, were
stretched for seventy-five yards
in front of the piers to hold back
the throngs. No one without a
special permit was allowed beyond
these ropes. As early as eight
o'clock automobiles in which veiled women and silent men were
seated began arriving, and by
8.30 a small crowd already had
entered the great steel and concrete structure which covers the
piers.
The first survivors began to
leave the ship at 9.35.
The following statement issued
by a committee of the surviving
passengers was given to the press
on the arrival of the Carpathia:
"We, the undersigned surviving passengers on the Titanic, in
order to forestall any sensational
or exaggerated statements, deem
it to be our duty to give the press
a statement of the facts which
have come to our knowledge and
which we believe to be true:
"On Sunday, April 14, 1912, at
11.40 p.m., on a cold starlight
night, in a smooth sea and with
no moon, the ship struck an ice
berg which had been reported to
the bridge by lookouts, but not
early enough to avoid collision.
"Steps were taken to ascertain
the damage and save passengers
and ship. Orders were given to
put on lifebelts, and the boats
were lowered. The ship sank at
about 2.30 a.m. Monday, and the
usual distress signals were sent
out by wireless and rockets at intervals from the ship. Fortunately the wireless message was received by theCunard's Carpathia
at about midnight, and she arrived on the scene of the disaster
at about 4 a.m. Monday.
"The officers and crew of the
steamship Carpathia had been
preparing all night for the rescue
and comfort of the survivors, and
the last mentioned were received
on board with the most touching
care and kindness, every care being given, irrespective of class.
The passengers, officers and crew
gave up their staterooms, clothing and comforts for our benefit.
All honor to them.
"The English Board of Trade
passenger certificate on board the
Titanic showed approximately
3500. The same certificate called
for lifeboat accommodations for
approximately 950, in the following boats: Fourteen large lifeboats, two smaller boats and four
collapsible boats.
"Life preservers were accessible and apparently in  sufficient
number for all on board.
"We feel it our duty to call the
attention of the public to what
we consider the inadequate supply
of life saving appliances provided
for on modern passenger steamers, and recommend that immediate steps be taken to compel
passenger steamers to carry
sufficient boats to accommodate
the maximum number of people
carried on board. The following
facts were observed and should
be considered in this connection :
"The insufficiency of lifeboats,
rafts, etc., lack of trained seamen to handle same (stokers,
stewards, etc. are not efficient
boat handlers) ;not enough officers
to carry out emergency orders on
the bridge; to seperintend the
launching and control of lifeboats;
absence of searchlights.
"The board of trade rules allow for entirely too manv people
in each boat to permit the same
to be properly handled. On the
Titanic the boat deck was about
75 feet above water, and consequently the passengers were required to embark before lowering
boats, thus endangering the
operation and preventing the taking on of the maximum number
the boats would hold.
' 'Boats at all times to be pro-
perlv equipped with provisions,
water, lamps, compasses, lights,
etc. Life saving boat drills
should be more frequent and
thoroughly carried out and
officers should be armed at boat
drills.
"Great reduction in speed in
fog and ice, as damage if collision
actually occurs is liable to be less
"in conclusion we suggest that
an international conference be
called to recommend the passage
of identical laws providing for
the safety of all at sea, and we
urge the United States government to take the initiative as soon
as possible.

W. E. Thompson will be the

now at Prince Rupert all ready
to start up the river. Captain Jackman will again be on
the bridge. They expect her to
leave and get through the Canyon about the 28th of this month.
She will come through light as
there is a great deal of stuff at
the bridge waiting to be hauled
to Sealey, and from there on
through to the valley.
To San Francisco
The Victoria Automobile Association has announced its intention to tour this year to San
Francisco to attend the annual
convention of the Pacific Highway Association to be held Aug.
5, 6, 7. Seattle and Portland will
also make the run and it is likely
that Vancouver, Tacoma and New-
Westminster will also join in.
Thus the northern motorists will
be well represented. In another
year there will be nearly enough
motorists in the Hazelton district
to have one or more representatives at the convention. The introduction of automobiles in this
district will be the best and most
effective means of getting permanent work done on the local
roads.

GRANBY COPPER
BIG ADVANCE
Earnings Little Short of $100,000

Basis
WESTERN TRIP
FOR THE DUKE
1 Itiniary for the Governor General's Six
Month's Outing Hss Been
Issued
The following item which was
published in the Wall Street
Journal of April 12, gives the
reason for the big advance in
Granby Copper stock on the Boston metal market several days
ago. The stock also advanced on
the Spokane and Vancouver stock
exchanges at the same time. The
item was dated from Boston.
The $15 dollar advance in
Granby in the past two days reflects realization lhat these long
neglected shares wereintrinicallv
worth, on 16 cent copper, far
more than they were selling for.
On 16 cent copper Granby is!
showing earnings of only a little
short of $100,000 per month on
output of 1,800,000 pounds cr al-;
most $8 per share on 150,000 outstanding shares. These earnings
disregard the newly acquired but
fully paid for Hidden Creek property, purchased a year or more
ago, and which is opening up far
better that the new owners anticipated.
The expectation is that within
the two years, when the Hidden
Creek mine is producing between
25,000,000 pounds per annum,
Granby's total output will be
brought up to 50,000,000 pounds
at a cost of not over 8 1-2 cents a
pound.

POULTRY DEPARTMENT
Building a Profitable Poultry Business
Hints  to beginners by E. B.
Templer,  Valley Falls, N.Y.  in
the Poultry Review.
"Undoubtedly there will be
thousands of beginners in poultry
work this season. While I have
written along this line in the past
yet for the benefit of those who
have but recently joined the
ranks of chicken fanciers I will go
over some of the essential things.
Each year of experience with
those who have been long in the
business brings forth new things
worth mentioning. There is no
one who has learned it all, nor
any one who is perfected in the
art of poultry keeping. Thus by
continuing with the work and
taking advantage of every opportunity of learning something
new, anyone can grow in the
business.
The most important thing for
the beginner to take in consideration is what he wants to do in the
work. Ask yourself this question
��� "What is my object in raising
and keeping chickens?" Then
answer according to what you
have in mind. Do you want eggs
onlv, or meat and eggs? This
makes quite a little difference in deciding which breed you
will take. In certain parts of the
country the Leghorns will make
a great showing as egg producers,
and where they are kept for this
purpose, the meat is not taken
into consideration. These people
want eggs, and eggs only. They
will get them from the Leghorns,
if they have a good strain and
the right winter conditions.
However if you have in mind a
breed or variety from which you
want to get eggs and meat also
then pick out one of the heavier
breeds. You may make your
selections from the Orpingtons,
Wyandottes, Rocks and R.I. Reds.
Any of these breeds will give you
satisfaction, providing that you
get a good strain to start with.
If you want eggs and meat, get
a strain of heavy winter egg producers. If you want exhibition
birds, get a strain that will measure up to the Standard and at
the same time be good producers.
Then you may expect something
really good.
Now as to the strain itself.
There is first the breed, like the
Wyandotte family; then there
are the sub-divisions, as the
White Wyandottes, the Buffs,
Columbian, etc. These are some
of the varieties of the Wyandotte
family. Then when you have
made the selection of the breed
and the variety, there comes the
selection of strain. Now strain
is simply a matter of breeding
for something. If you get a
heavy winter egg producing
strain, you have wrapped, up in
each egg you buy, years of breeding for this purpose. Mating
and selecting for this purpose |
means much time, labor and
money expended. However it is
important that you get a good
strain, even if you do not get
the number of chicks that you
would like for the first year. Is
it not better to have a dozen good
chicks than to have fifty of an
inferior quality? You will find,
that it will pay in the end. Get J
the right start by making a purchase of the best eggs that you
can get of the variety that you
have in mind.
It is better to make the expenditure for the first season as
light as possible in order to see
how things are going to come. If
you are in on too great a scale,
you may find that you do not care
for the work, or that you do not
have the success that you had
hoped for, and then you will find
yourself with a lot of equipment
and stock on hand. It is better
to go into the work in a moderate
manner and then grow from year
to year. If you were to start
with say one machine and fifty
eggs from A No. 1 stock, you
would have a chance to see what
you could do along the line of!
hatching and rearing of chicks. |
With the one machine for hatching you could get out one batch
for yourself and possibly one or
two for your neighbors. You
could hatch the eggs that they j
would bring in and charge them
a small price per egg set or per
chick hatched. In this way you
could get experience and some
returns at the same time. If you
hatched out say even twenty-five
or thirty chicks from the choice
eggs, you would have just enough
for one of the brooder coops and
tireless brooders. The cost of
this equipment would not be
great, but it would be better to
have to buy or make one than to
have a dozen of them as a starter
for your plant. As your choice
chicks grew and developed, you
could build one or two of the
economy or adjustable coops for
housing them. This would make
a house for them while growing
and provide a permanent house
for the pullets that you would
get. Now it would be better to
invest say from eight to ten dollars
in well bred hatching eggs than
to buy a great quantity from inferior stock. Remember this is
for your foundation stock. Another year you will want to breed
from these birds that you raise,
and therefore you want the best
that you can get. From the fifty
or so eggs purchased you should
get a fair number of chicks to
start with. Of course this depends on how well you run the
incubator and how fertile the
eggs are. It is better to run one
hatch through with common eggs
in order to get the hang of the
machine and the way of running
it for the best results. We can
always do things better with a
little practice, so don't try your
luck with choice eggs, unless you
ara obliged to.
The beginner who has a few
chicks is very apt to overfeed
them. Great care should be given
to the feeding, as it is very important that they be fed properly
A little at a time is a good rule to
work by, and if you will feed
little and often you will make no
mistake. Keep the wheat bran
in little hoppers before the chicks
at all times, and they will have a
valuable food and bowel regulator
constantly on hand. Do not feed
wet or sloppy foods, for this will
bring on bowel trouble and no
end of complications. Give a
little grit, but do not keep it before them from the start, as they
are apt to eat more of it  than is
good  for  them.    They   do   not
! seem to know as to feeding values
and hence will take anything in
: their crop they can get hold of.
If the' alfalfa is used for litter
they  will  pick  up a lot of this
I but it will not be injurious, as it
will serve for green food and
make for bulk. The best thing
is not to  use any litter for the
; first few days, then they will get
just what you want them to have
and there will not be any doubt
, in your mind as to what they are
eating.    The feeding is very im-
| portant and requires much study
in order to get out a ration that
will do the work that is required.
What is wanted is a ration that
will make them grow rapidly and
at the same time keep them in
the best possible health. Condiments should not be fed to young
chicks. The concentrated foods
which are on the market may be
used for grown fowls at times,
but the little chicks are better off
without them.
Do not let the chicks get out in
the rain and wet. The beginner
will find that the brooder-coops
are ideal in this respect. If you
keep the covers down, the show-
! er may come, but the chicks are
as safe as though  they  were in
: the house with you.    The writer
j has known of hundreds of chicks
that were drowned simply because
they were permitted to run at
large. A sudden shower came
up and they were lost. Keep
watch of your birds, feed them
with the best of care, and in the
fall you will have a pen of birds
that you will be proud of.

the health officer has visited all
the premises in town and as a
result there has been a general
clean up. Not only have the back
yards been put in sanitary condition but the streets are looking
clean and fidy. Chief Wynn has
also made many necessary repairs to the sidewalks and the

Making Garden
Every one who has been able
to secure a piece of ground are
getting busy preparing for the
spring sowing. The Hazelton
soil is ideal for garden truck and
there will be more gardens this
year than ever before.
Port Simpson Coming
The Steamer Port Simpson is
expected to leave Prince Rupert
any time now for Hazelton. This
Hudson Bay boat was loaded at
Port Simpson for this port, and
on her way down   will  stop at
! Rupert and take on a lot of per-
\ ishables,   such   as   fresh   fruit,
eggs, etc.    As soon as the water
i will permit  her  to get through
| the Canyon she will make a fast
trip here.    For the  rest of the
season she will ply between Hazelton  and  the end  of steel, or
j whatever point the  railway selects     for    unloading    general
freight.    Word is expected daily
as to that point.   The Port Simpson will make only the one trip
from Port Simpson.
River Rising
For several days past the water in the river has been rising
steadily, although anv great increase in the flow was not noticed
until Tuesday morning after the
rain the night before It should
be only a matter of a couple of
days now until there is sufficient
water for the boats to make their
way up stream. The three
steamers which will ply between
the end of steel and Hazelton
and Sealey are all ready to move.
Mail to Ground Hog
A request is now being made
for a mail service to the Ground
Hog country at least once a
month during the summer. At
the present time there are a large
number of people in the coal
fields and every week is adding
to that number. When the season for pack trains opens up
there will be several hundred
miners and prospectors at Ground
Hog. These men want mail and
it is right that they should have
it. Mr. H. S. Clements, M.P.,
will no doubt take this into consideration during his visit here
in a short time.
