LETTERS FROM THE EAST
(By a Staff Correspondent)
Toronto, Jan. 25.-If the West
cannot find means of transporting
its great wheat crop to the East
it surely discovered a rapid transit carrier for shipping its weather
The green Christmas which was
bemoaned all over Eastern Canada
was quickly followed by a series
of semi-weekly storms and zero
spells from the West which nipped the buds of the open winter
theories. Fur coats, skating rinks
and toboggan slides are now having carnival season during the
brief resting periods of the storm
gods, and young and old are
agreed that Canada is this year
getting a real winter,
ooo
When the sporting men of the
Pacific Coast, whose pockets are
vulgarly fat with money, undertook to depopulate the East of
professional hockey players it was
predicted that the national winter
game would loose public interest
in the provinces where it was
born and nursed from amateur
infancy into classy professionalism, but despite these prophesies
the daily papers continue to devote a page or two each issue to
sport. Hockey, along with other
things, continue to thrive in the
East.
0      0     0
This is not the only instance in
which the easy money egotism of
the West has led it to misjudge the
East. The time was a few years
ago when the price of a drink
west of Winnipeg would buy a
first-class meal or a night's lodging in Ontario, or in the provinces
down by the Atlantic. To-day
two-bits are no bigger in a Toronto
hotel than they are in Vancouver,
and the prosperous man of the
East spends quite as much on
taxi-cabs, theatres, dinnerparties
and parlor cars as his brother
does in the western club, and gets
more pleasure for his money. The
West advertises its waste but the
East has extravagances.
ooo
It is somewhat amusing for one
who has lived in the West to hear
the agitations of the narrow-faced
holy citizens, and watch the
struggles of some legislators to
drive sin out of the world and
make the red-blooded Canadian
youth sit prim and quiet on the
Sabbath. The biggest question
now before the Council and the
Board of Control of the City of
Toronto is how to prevent citizens from tobogganing and skating in the public parts on Sunday.
So far they have been unable to
get legislation to prevent it and
the Sunday sport has been greatly
popularized by the wry faces of
the Sunday Alliance.
ooo
Sir William Mackenzie who is
generally recognized as a wizard
in touching banks and capitalists
for loans, is continually springing
some surprise on the financial
world. When Sir William goes
after money he always gets it
and the simplicity of his methods

HARRIS MINES
LONG TUNNEL
Are in Two Hundred and Forty Feet-
Hit the Ore before March 1st.���
Means much to the District
The end of this week will find
the tunnel on the Harris Mines
into the side of the hill 245 feet
with but another 50 feet to go
before thpv strike the ore.   The
owners fully expect to come in !
contact with the vein before the
first of March, and then drifting
on the vein will begin. The de-1
velopment of the Harris mines is
one of the most important features of the work in this district
and what turns out when they
hit the ore has a great bearing
upon the prosperity of the Hazelton district this summer. This
property and the Rocher de Boule
are making great strides to get
into the ore bodies at a depth of
a hundred feet or more. If they
get the kind of ore they are looking for then the future of the
camp is assured. The Harris
Mines have reason to believe
that they will strike ore in the
tunnel equal the very rich stuff
tha" was taken out of Silver
Standard mine last fall when the
shaft was sunk to 85 foot level.
If the ore is all right in the
tunnel, said the manager of the
Harris Mines to the Herald, we
will start a second tunnel almost immediately at a level
which will give us 500 feet depth
on the vein and which will tap
all the veins. This tunnel will
be the general working tunnel
and will be known as Tunnel No.
2. Unless unforseen difficulties
are encountered the new tunnel
can be driven into the ore and
connection made with the No. 1
tunnel by rising and sinking on
the vein, by Dec.lst of this year.
All the people who have been
on the Harris property and on
Rocher de Boule are confident
that the ore at the 100 foot depth
for which both are now driving,
will be up to expectations. If
this is a fact there will be nothing whatever to keep the capitalists out of the country.
Telkwa Booming
John McNeil of Aldermere, of
the firm of Broughton & McNeil,
I was in  town  several  days this
j week  on  business.    He reports
everything in  a flourishing condition in  the valley.    Everyone
is prosperous and they are making money.    All lines of business
are doing well and there will be
a big influx of people there this
summer.    The construction work
on   the  railway   is  helping the
j valley  people a great deal and
j this summer there will be a big
I boom on when the new townsite
is put on  the market and the
railway yards and terminals get
I underway.    Mr. McNeil  is very
j hopeful of the future of that district.
Old Boys Return
Just as the rohbins and the
wild fowl return to their summer
feeding places with the first signs
of spring, so are the old hoys of
the hills coming from the south
where they have been holidaying for several months and getting ready to start on the new
season's work. It looks good to
see the familliar faces again.
They come fresh from the cities
and are filled with new life and
energy, and those who remained
here all winter absorb the overflow of this new energy and put
forth greater effort. Its like the
dead coming back and taking a
new lease of life.
Every train that comes up from
the coast is now bringing half a
dozen old boys back. They are
all welcome. So are the new men
who are already coming in to prepare for opening up business in
New Hazelton.
NEW HAZELTON'S RAILWAYS
That New Hazelton is destined j
1 to be an important railway centre,
and one of magnitude, is becoming more and more apparent.   In l
and around Vancouver and Victoria it is common talk that the
big railway interests are making
plans    for   running   up   to   the
Ground    Hog   Anthracite     coal
fields.    From  the eastern cities!
come the same reports.    All this j
means that those who are living,
in  the town  today   will hardly
realize what is going on until we
find ourselves in the midst  of al
city of size and importance.   The
great railway centre of Saskatoon
started  nine  years ago with a
very fragile foundation (so it was
thought then) to build on.    New
Hazelton  starts   with   a firmer
A HAZELTON PASTURE FIELD
With Rocher de  Haul*  Mountain  in  the Back Ground
foundation for future greatness
than Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary or Edmonton had at the
start.
It is not only our present population alone who are going to
build the city, but the hundreds
throughout Canada and the United States who are investing in
the property and who will come
as soon as the trains are running.
They will have a say in moulding
New Hazelton's future.
The shrewd investors appear to
be purchasing largely between
Ninth and Tenth Avenues to
Twenty-fifth Ave. The higher
ground in most cities turns out to
be where the most money is made.
New Hazelton will not likely be
an exception.
HORSE AND MULE
WERE BURNED
Fire Broke Out in John Goold's Barn
and Destroyed Everything in a
Short Time
FARM LANDS DEVELOPMENT
AND REAL COLONIZATION
North Coast Land Co, are Preparing to Open Up This District in a
Systematic Manner-*-=Get Land Ready for the Settler
During the coming spring and
summer the North Coast Land
Co., of Vancouver, owners of
large tracts of agricultural land
in the Skeena and Bulkley Valleys and right through to Fort
George, have prepared a program
for the development of their
lands and also for the settlement
of them. H. S. Wilson arrived
in town on Saturday last for the
purpose of making a report to
the company a n d getting
things in shape for the start in
the spring as soon as the snow is
gone. He stated to the Herald
that the company would clear
their land, erect a cabin and a
stable on each of the farms and
have them ready so that the settler can start in the first season
and farm instead of having two
or three years work ahead of
him before there is any revenue.
The North Coast Land Co. is
one of the best land companies
in the Dominion and they have
always made it a point to accept
no land that is not up to standard. They get individual reports on each piece, and in this
way they have established a most
enviable reputation among their
clients. The policy that has been
planned for this district is an
ideal one and this company will
in that way do more to open up
and settle the northern interior
than any other. The first work,
the Herald was given to understand, would be done in the vicinity of New Hazelton. Thus the
new town will soon be having
farm and garden produce grown
in its own territory.
The second barn fire within a
very short time was discovered
early yesterday morning. In this
one horse and mule were burned
to death and the building is a
total wreck. It was about half-
past three when some of the
boys living in cabins close by
awoke to find the neighborhood
all lighted up. Ed. McBeth was
one of the first to get out. As
soon as he saw the flames he ran
over in his underclothes and succeeded in getting Harry Sykes
team out of the tent right
along side the fire. The barn
however was too far gone to
allow anyone to enter and save
the animals in it. The fire department was soon on the scene
but could do nothing except prevent the flames spreading. The
horse and mule were the property
of Wm. Richardson. The general impression is that the fire
was started by some malicious
party and if that is the case the
sooner there is an investigation
the better for everyone in town.
Eagle's Dance
J. H. Jennings left on Thursday for his home in Portland,
Ore. where he will visit for a
month or two. He has been associated with Rocher de Boule
mine all winter and when he
comes back he will likely be connected with the Lead King mine.
Ed. Tappy has purchased the
freighting outfit owned by Harry
Sykes and in future he will carry
on a general freighting business.
| Tappy  has been one of A.  L.
j McHugh's freighters for some
time and he is well acquainted
with the work.
The Eagle's dance on Tuesday
night was one of the big social
successes of the season. The
committee in charge proved very
capable and managed the affair
to perfection. A very large
crowd was present and all were
delighted. The decorations were
particularly attractive and the
music was the best yet. Roy
Miller, of the Hazelton Bakery,
furnished a very tasty luncheon.
Ed.   McBeth,   who   recently
bought the Union Transfer outfit, will shortly  be running two
six-horse   outfits between   here
and Aldermere.    He has a lot of
business ahead of him now anr*

A Town of Boosters
New Hazelton is to day populated with a people who are enthusiastic, ambitious, and full of
confidence in their own town and
country. The new people who
are already coming in from the i
outside are just as enthusiastic.
It is and will be for many years a
town of boosters (people who
have faith in their own). That,
is the main feature in a successful town and district. When
everyone is boosting capital and
energy will be applied so that the
very best of results will be obtained. New Hazelton is no
place for the knocker or the disgruntled. New Hazelton is justified in boosting because it has
everything at its very door to
make a big and very prosperous
town. The people who are there
now are hustlers. They have
ideas of business that are new.
They will apply them in a way
that will bring results. From the
splendid agricultural lands of the
Kispiox Valley, where there are
already quite a number of prosperous farmers, will come supplies, and that valley will also be
a permanent market for the merchandise of the town. On the
other side is the Chicken Lake
country which will also be a big
patron of New Hazelton. On all
sides are the mines which for the
past two years have been undergoing development so that by the
time the railway can haul freight
the mines will be ready to ship
ore. It is therefore a town that
will have a big business from the
very start. The people here now
are not the only ones who appreciate this. The past two weeks
several people from the outside
have come in for the purpose of
starting in business and at least
three of them have made arrangements for buildings, stocks, etc.,
to be here and ready early in the
spring. The reports from the
outside make it look as though
the big population of New Hazel-
will be new people, and these
people will be a prominent factor
in establishing the town and
moulding its conduct and business
methods.
development of the land because
they know that it will turn out
well.
If there were more companies
like the North Coast Land Co.
the province would rapidly increase its wealth and its population. There would be no wild
cats and no land frauds. The
public would have utmost confidence and the settlers would come
fast and make good and increase
the revenue of the province.
In the policy of the North
Coast Land Co., New Hazelton
will derive much benefit as a lot
of the lantl to be improved is
within a reasonable tlistance of
that growing antl prosperous
town. The worst we can wish is
that the North Coast Land Co.
will meet with the greatest
success in their undertaking.

Who wouldn't be a farmer?
There is just one trouble, only
the farmers know how to farm.
There are thousands who would
like .0 quit the cities and emigrate to the country, and possess
themselves of broad fertile
fields, and proceed to make
two blades of this, that or the
other of grass grow where one
or none grew before, but this
proposition presents, that it takes
from two tt> twenty years to learn
how tt> farm (some folks never
learn), and within such a period
bankruptcy might occur several
times over. But if all of us cannot be farmers, all can admire
the horny-handed sons of toil and
rejoice with him in his present
great prosperity. He is the
bulwark of the nation and the
salt of the earth.

His latest scheme brought in five

lender received for the money a
promise to participate in speculative lands which the Canadian
Northern will make valuable by |
the location of its projected lines.
The deal includes real estate in
Montreal water front and lots in I

between Edmonton and Vancouver. Putting up five and a half!
millions fora promise to receive a
few acres of real estate which is

they do not even believe in evolution, but those ��� who'knowthe

is the repeated reply of Premier
Whitney to the publicists who ask
that Ontario municipalities have
the   privilege   of   adopting   the
single tax.     In view of the fact
that Ontario  licence  laws make
the map look  like a crazy quilt,
the argument of the  Premier is
not a weighty one and  reminds
one of the  reply  the Attorney
General    of     British   Columbia
gave Prince Rupert when   that
city   asked   for   a  modern  city
charter.     It was refused on the
ground that it was different and
other cities of the province might
want   one   too.     Thus   two   of

rather than  apply a  remedy in
parts. One would almost suppose
that Sir James Whitney and Hon.

The East has always looked to
the West to take the initative in
advanced legislation in both state
and municipality.   Having virgin
soil  to work  on and being unhampered by traditions, the West,
with its sporting blood, accepts
the duty with   good  cheer and
usually    reaps   tbe   profits   of
success.     For   many   years the
single   tax   doctrines   of Henry
George were little  more  than a
theory working in the  minds of
men, but the  teachings of-the
great political economist are now
being appreciated.     Almost the
first city to adopt the single tax
���or tax on land values only, was
Prince  Rupert.    It  was quickly
followed by Vancouver and now
the Province  of Alberta is pass-
ing legislation making it compulsory   for   all    municipalities   to
adopt  the  principles within the
next five years.    Just  whether
taxing land only will  adjust the;
differences between capital  and
labor as argued by Henry George
remains to be seen.    It will take
years to test it, but this much is
certain, that the western cities
which do not tax improvements
have accepted the new plan with
good grace and in some instances

Rossland, arived in New Hazelton on Wednesday and reported
ready for his new duties as superintendent of the Silver Standard
Mine on Glen Mountain. Mr.
Haskins is a first class mining
man, having at one time been
superintendent of the Nickle
Plate Mine, of Rossiand. He
comes to take the place of Geo.
McBean, the original locator of
the property and who has since
been the superintendent. He
has long been anxious to get,
away so that he could visit his
old home in the east.
Mr. Haskins wastakpn over to!
the mine by D. McLeod, after he
has a look around so that he can
size up the situation   he will re-j
port to the directors the best way !

prepare for the machinery which
has been shipped and should be

will be hauled out to the property
and   installed  and   the development work will then be resumed
with greater energy than ever.

FRED W. HENNING, Manager
The veteran as well as the beginner is sometimes puzzled over
the numerous brands of feed that
are upon the market. There are
all kinds of scratch feeds mixed
in various proportions and with a
varying quality of grain. All
claim to be the very thing that
you want, and if you will feed
this particular brand you will
have lots of eggs and your chickens will do well. These statements may all be true enough,
but it is all confusing even at
that. The beginner wants to
know which to purchase and
which will give best results. The
seasoned poultryman is often beguiled into something new, and
hence gets away from the beaten
path. It is only natural for any
manufacturer to speak highly of
his goods. Much good judgment
therefore must be exercised when
making a selection.
The writer heard a well-read
farmer say but a short time ago
that if the farmer would stick to
good sound grains, both whole
and ground, instead of getting
on to these prepared foods for
cattle, that the cows would be
better off. He further remarked
that many of these prepared
foods would stimulate the milk
flow for a time, but would be
detrimental later on. Now this
is good sense and can be applied
to feeds used in poultry work.
Know what you are getting, and
get  what you  pay for.    If you
CHURCH SERVICES
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
HAZELTON
-*
purchase wheat and pay a good
price for it, you know that you ]
have good wheat. It can be fed
whole to the older chickens, and
taken to a grist mill and cracked
for the little chicks. Not long1
ago a party fed some of the commercial chick feed and found
that many of the small seeds had
been taken into the crop and
had swollen the crop full. Many
of these chicks had died apparently from this cause. Now
what the seeds were was not
known, but from the large percentage of these seeds in the
crop, it was reasonable to believe
that something was wrong. The
chicks were in a position to get
plenty of grit and ought to have
been able to grind whatever grain
they ate.
This same thing applies to all
kinds of feeds. If you purchase
the grains ground or whole, and
then mix them yourself, you
know what you are feeding, and
in just what proportion. If you
find that you want more of this
or that, you are in a position to
mix it as you see fit, and as it
gives the best results. If you
can get on to a good grain ration
that proves successful, stick to it
and mix the grains in the same
proportion from time to time.
In this way you will feed evenly
and with an assurance of success.
If you are changing from time to
time from one brand of prepared
food to another, and depending
j on your dealer to get the same *-���=
! brand each time, you will never  |
| get down to a definite, systematic  S
' method of feeding.    Think this

Got Some New Ore
On Monday one of the men
from Silver Cup Mine came into
town and he had a sack of ore
as a sample that he brought in
from the Duke Vein on that
property. The samples were
exceptionally fine specimens of
the Cup ore and the directors of
the company here were particularly pleased to know that this
class of ore had been found on
the Duke Vein. All winter the
men have been driving a tunnel
on this vein and they are now in
105 feet. The vein at this point
is a foot and a half wide and
there is at least four inches of
solid ore the same as the samples
brought in. It was not expected
that ore of this grade would be
found in the Duke vein so that
the property is thus more promising than ever. The samples
will be assayed as soon as Mr.
McLeod or Mr. Smith can get
hold of the assayer.

While the average man, in fact
the majority of men, are trying
to figure out when the rails will
reach the bridge and when trains
will carry freight into New Hazelton, and how long the boats
will be able to run and carry
freight and passengers from the
bridge to old Hazeiton, Foley,
Welch & Stewart, with their
hundreds of men and scores of
teams, are sawing wood every
day and the work is going ahead
in grand shape. It is no longer a
j question to those who know how
��� long this or that will be. Grand
Trunk trains will be running into
; New Hazelton in fewer months
j than the average man can realize.
JThe construction of the bridge
across the Skeena is no longer
considered a barrier. Supt. Hal-
pin has been doing some fine
work and he has had favorable
conditions to work under. One
big caisson is not only sunk
but it is sealed up and they are
sinking fast on the other one.
They are sure now that the piers
will all be completed by the first
of May, and that the steel men
can start on their part of the
bridge as soon as the tracks are
up to the bridge and the steel can
be hauled up.The track is making
splendid progress and the present
exceptionally fine weather is just
what they want.
I    .All the time the track is being
laid Foley, Welch & Stewart have
scoresof four-horse teams hauling
' cement and other supplies up to
the bridge so that there has not
been so much as a day's delay in
the whole work and  there is not
j likely to be.    The matter of the
: steel work on the bridge is simple
1 and it will not take over six weeks
! to complete it with ordinary luck
| and then the tracks can be run
i across and  on  through to New
Hazelton, reaching that town in
July or the first part of August at
: the latest.    Thus the freight and
passenger traffic, which is heav-
1 iest the middle and later part of
the summer will be looked after
by the railway.    The season for
the steamers will be  remarkably
! short at best as they cannot and
will not attempt to compete with
the railway.
In short the situation at the
present time appears to be that
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
will be running regular trains
into New Hazelton in lots of time
for all the merchants to get in
their summer goods and there
will be no more necessity to put
in $100,000 stocks to last for seven
or eight months. That day is
over and the New Hazelton merchants will get their first goods
by rail at an early date.

The Post Office Question
The post office is still a burning
question for all the residents of
the town. They have sent a wire
and a petition to Ottawa asking
that the post office be not located
Ion Ninth Ave. as was proposed,
j as it is eight or nine blocks away
i from the business and residential
section which is now on Section
one and south of Eleventh Ave.
' To have the telegraph and post
office so far away would indeed
he a hardship for the people here
now and for some time to come.
No word has been received from
the department at Ottawa as to
what   is   being  done.      In   the:
meantime the people are getting
their mail from a score or more
places in town.   In fact in comes
to almost a different place every
time, and no one knows whether
they get what is coming to them
or not.   The commercial progress
of the town is also being handicapped   from   the   same   cause.
The business section is now in
Section One and that part of the
townsite is  being rapidly   built
I up, and there is every reason to
! believe that the busines and the
greater residential part of the |
population will always be in the j
ame vicinity.

CHICKEN LAKE
DOINGS
Chicken Lake. ���Messrs. Johnson, Pederson and McDonald will
start to build a trail for wagon
traffic from Sec. 35 down to meet
the Government trail, a distance
of a mile and a half. They will
get busy as soon as the snow is
off in the spring. This will make
a big improvement to their property and also a great convenience
to the travelling public.
It is now generally acknow-
leged that some of the best land
in this whole district is around
Chicken Lake, and it is nearly
all taken up. At the present time
there are in the neighborhood of
50 to GO settlers residing here and
before the summer gets well advanced this number will be increased to at least a hundred.
The future for this section is very
bright and greater accounts will
come from it than has hitherto
been expected.
Messrs. Christiansen and Stain-
rnan will complete their houses
in the early spring and then
bring in their families to make
their homes in the Chicken Lake
country.
Gus Haller, of Hazelton, will
be out to his ranch in a short
time and he will remain for several weeks.
T. H. Pederson spent a few
in Hazelton last week on business.
The settlers in this district are
arranging to put in a busy season
clearing up their farms and getting them ready for cultivation.
It is a big job as the timber in
many places is pretty heavy, but
once it is off the land is the finest
in the world and within the next
couple of years there will be a
great bunch of fine farm produce
taken out of this country.
Chicken Lake is one of the
choice garden spots of the northern interior. It will be one of
the main arteries of trade for
New Hazelton. In this district,
which in the past has been over
looked by the masses in favor of
the greater Bulkley Valley, there
is a large track of land that is
first class agricultural land. It
is a natural garden and the people who have gone in and settled
would not trade for any other
land in the country. They are
all boosters who have real confidence in their country and if
there were only a few more like
them here Chicken Lake would
soon come to the front and a
good little town would soon
spring up. Aside from the excellent farm arid garden land it is
just at the foot of Hudson Bay
Mountain and it is closer to the
mines than any other point and it
is also on the railway. As a matter of fact the Hudson Bay
Mountain trade should all come
to this point.
Do you like the neighbor who
is eternally borrowing and never
returning? Now tell the truth,
do you? Of course not! Nobody
does.
LIBERALS HELD

The annual meeting of the
Liberal Association of Hazelton
was held in the Presbyterian
Reading rooms on Monday night
last and there was a splendid
attendance, and the utmost confidence was demonstrated in the
success of the Liberal party in
British Columbia in the near
future. The present government,
as expressed by the speakers,
had taken possession of everything in the province that they
could get their hands on and that
the public wasbeginning to realize
the fact that there was little or
nothing left for the people. The
Liberals of Hazelton, although
they have been defeated in the
past, are still alive and they will
put up a fight at the next and
every election���until such time as
the province is governed in the
interests of the masses.
There will be a Liberal convention in Vancouver on Feb. 29th
and the Hazelton Association will |
be represented there by Duncan
Ross and F. C. McKinnon, and
these gentlemen will make a report to the association upon their
return.
The new officers for the year
were elected and the executive
committee will meet regularly
and get to work systematically.

 IN BUYING BUSINESS LOTS	
Be Sure you Buy in the Mercantile District.   At New Hazelton
that district is Section One���OUR Property
*
SECTION ONE - new hazelton
esmsms.
THE BUSINESS  DISTRICT
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

Days   J. A. Cowan Takes Charge
of the Business End
J. A. Cowan, of Salt Lake City,
Utah, son of John F. Cowan, of
Rocher de Boule mine, arrived in
town on Saturday and left on
Monday for the mine where he
will take charge of the business
end of the property, and from
now on he will rush the development work on the property.
He stated that a 25 l..>.>. boiler
and two giant drills with all the
equipment were now on the way
between Seattle and Hazelton.
They should be at the mine in a
few days when they will be installed and then the spring operations will be started. A hoist
is also coming up foi' the purpose
of taking supplies up to the
upper lead which is the big copper vein. It is on this vein that
the company will start the next
tunnel, and they will get busy on
a tunnel over 400 feet which will
give them a depth on this vein of
20!) feet. A small tram will also
be built to the upper lead.
As soon as the railway reaches
the bridge and it is possible to
gel the heavier mining' machinery
up to the property it will be
brought in and installed. The
object of the company is to have
the mine in shape so that they
can start shipping ore continuously by the fall.

two prisoners down to New

W. S. Sargent Tells of Work of Hazelton Boosters Club   An Immense
Crowd Coming to New
Hazelton
W. S. Sargent, one of the best
known prospectors of the Hazelton distriet. returned to town
last Saturday and he reports that
next summer will see one ol' the
bi*L>jii*st rushes to New Hazelton
that has yet been recorded in the
north. In all the cities he visited
the chief topic of conversation
was New Hazelton and the Hazelton mines, ln Vancouver, Seattle,
and Victoria one can hear very
little else spoken of. He says
that if even a part of the people
come who say they are there will
be an immense crowd.
While in  Portland, Billy said
that he was made an offer for the
Ohio group on Rocher de Boule
mountain,   adjoining  Rocher de i
Boule mine.    The offer was very ;
tempting but he did not close it'
as he prefered to wait until there
is more development on the ad-1
joining property.    If he does not
get a deal  through in the early
summer  he says he and Munro
will go out and do some develop-,
ment work on it themselves.
Mr. Sargent spent a great part
of the winter at his home in
Minneapolis. While in Vancouver he says that the Hazelton
Prospectors Club presented Wm.
Kennedy with a cabinet of silver
on the eve of his wedding. The
club is in fine shape and they had
many good times there during the
winter, and also did a lot of good
work for the district. He was I
accompanied back to the old
diggings by Billy Thompson and
they will remain here now for the
rest of the season.

(Established 1870)
It is difficult for a woman who
has led an active life as housekeeper to become a passive member of her son's or daughter's
home. She likes her old way
best, she longs to show the
younger generation how they are
wasting their resources. Youth
will learn only by experience.
It resents interference. And as
there are misunderstandings,
unhappiness results. A woman
is always happier in her own
home with her own income,
however small it may be, than in
the home of another, even of her
own son and daughter, though it
be a home of wealth and lavish
generosity, where there is an
earnest desire Lo make her comfortable and happy.
