China's Imperial Army Being Badly
Defeated���Several Leaders Shot
(Special to the Herald)
Tokio, Oct. 25���Advices received here today state that it is
now certain that the rebellion
will be a long one and that it will
cause enormous losses to the
foreign interests in China. It is
now felt best that the powers
should safeguard their commercial interests, and come to an understanding with the authorities
at Peking, and with the rebels,
making a portion of Yangtse
Kiang neutral and guarded by
foreign troops, thus allowing
trade to be carried on. A quantity of copper that was shipped
by a Japanese firm to Hankow
and seized by the rebels, has
been paid for by the Imperial
Government.
Pekin, Oct. 25-Ten thousand
Japanese troops have arrived at
Muden. The Imperial court
here will now be transferred to
Jehol.

Honors for the Duke
(Special to the Herald)
Ottawa. Oct. 26-The Duke of
Cannaught, the new Governor-
General, has accepted the invitation to be patron of the Dominion
Rifle Association. He is also
president of the British Nationalist Association.
Poor Graham
(Special to the Herald)
Ottawa, Oct. 26 The feeling
here is so strong against former
Minister of Railways Hon. Mr.
Graham thatdispite other leaders
now in opposition being allowed
election by acclamation, he will
be opposed wherever he attempts
to run.
"We know that the Ground
Hog Coal fields are 70 miles long
I by 30 miles wide" said Mr. R. C.
| Campbell-Johnston to the Herald,
j just after he and Mrs. Campbell-
: Johnston had arrived in Hazelton,
having completed the season's
! work and a twenty-six day tramp
j over a rough country.
The Ground Hog Coal fields
! are so immense that it is difficult
| to describe them in a manner
| that will be comprehensive and
at the same time accepted as
truth by the general public. Mr.
Campbell-Johnston states that he
has been over a territory 70 miles
one way and 30 miles the other,
and that he has not covered anything like the total ground.
"There are many miles of territory up there that I believe contain as -much and as high grade
coal as any I have ever been over.
It has not been covered yet by
any means. We know it is all
coal there. Nature has done the
work of the diamond drill and
we can start mining coal on the
surface. There will be no thousand foot shafts to sink, or long
tunnels before the coal is reached. The creeks run through the
country giving cross geological
sections and shows up the true
nature of the rock which is all
sedimentary without a trace of
the volcanic which is so prevalent in many districts where coal
has been found.
"The coal on Ground Hog is a
smokeless, non-coking, hard,
high grade coal giving 84 1-2 per
cent, fixed carbon and equally
good for all purposes which the
Pennsylvania hard coal is used.
It is particularly good for marine
use and we will command the
entire market for the Pacific
fleets (naval and commercial).
"During this season's work we
have uncovered and worked
eleven big commercial seams in
which there is enough coal to
justify us in proceeding with the
construction of the railway for
which we got our charter last
session of parliament. Our railway will be the Naas & Skeena
Rivers Railway and there will be
very little delay in constructing
it.
"As for the tonnage available
from the Ground Hog Coal fields
it will equal the Pennsylvania
coal fields with a daily output of
300,000 tons and the supply will
last for centuries. There are already five charters for railways
into that country and four of
them will go down the Naas.
The Grand Trunk Pacific which
will have to get their coal from
there will build in from Hazelton
going up the Skeena and Kispiox
to the laKes at the head of the
valley and follow this chain over
to Black Water lake which is one
of the headwaters of the Naas
river. From there they can get
through to the headwaters of the
Skeena and Stikine rivers, or follow one of the forks of the
Skeena to Bear Lake on the way
to the Peace River country. This
will give the Grand Trunk Pacific a productive route right
through from Hazelton. All the
railway grade can be kept down
to one per cent. The passes on
the Courier and Biernes Creek
are 4100 and 4300 feet above sea
level respectively, while the elevation of the coal fieds is from
3000 to 3500 feet.
"That there is sufficient tonnage for all railroads is beyond
the guessing or estimating stage.
Such an output as mentioned
means the operation of 300 inde-
pendant colleries and the running
of 300 trains daily to the seaboard. The importance of the
development of these coal fields
is immense both from the standpoint of the vast army of men
employed and the railway activity, to say nothhing of the wealth
being added to the country from
the product.
"Beyond the Ground Hog coal
fields lies another immense country of which very little is known
owing to the difficulties of exploration. This new territory is
drained by the Turnaeain river
which flows into the Liard River
and empties into the Artie Ocean.
It is up there where all the cariboo make their winter quarters
so that the climatic conditions
must be as favorable, and even
more so, than around  here.
"In days to come an all Canadian trunk line will run up from the
Skeena river along the Stikine
and on to Dawson through to
Alaska and then connect with
the Siberian railway, thus serving an immense country and at
the same time realizing the
dreams of the greatest and most
optimistic railway men of America. With the development of
Northern British Columbia the
possibilities of this great road
are increased and the day of
necessity rapidly approaching."
Mr. Campbell-Johnston left
Hazelton for the coal fields on
June 20th and he was accompanied by his wife and son.
Mrs. Campbell-Johnston stood
the travelling exceptionally well
and as a woman is a hero.
Twenty-six days on horse back,
sleeping under the canopy of
heaven and eating the fare of
men hardened to the rough life
of the prospector, seeing no
other white woman for months,
I is an undertaking very few
women would attempt. Mrs.
Campbell-Johnston is glad she
{went. She has a world of
\ knowledge she could not other-
; wise get and she is in every
way the better for her trip.
Mr. and Mrs.   Campbell-Johnston will leave this morning  in
ja canoe   for   Newtown    where
j they will   take   the    train   for
Prince Rupert and then proceed
! south for the winter.
(Special to the Herald)
Shanghi, Oct. 25.-From the
details which have arrived of
the killing of General Fenshang
it is apparent that the rebels
had the allies beaten. A bomb
was dropped on the General's
house and several of the personal guard were also killed.
General Fenshang was regarded
as one the ablest strategists of
the modern army. He was trained in Germany. The Imperal
Commanders in other parts of the
Empire are demoralized, fearing
a similar fate.
Johnson Gone Back ?
(Special to the Herald)
New York, Oct. 26-Following
other announcements by Marty
Cutler. Jack Johnson's sparing
partner, he declares that Johnson
knows that he has gone back so
far that he is now unable to defeat any really good man.
Johnson has picked up weight
from heavy living so rapidly that
he will never be able to fight a
real contender. He never made
a match with Wells and had no
thought of it. He always considered Wells far inferior. At
that, Johnson with hard training
could never get into condition to
meet Wells with any surety of
winning. He figured on his boxing skill to catch Well's in the
early stages with one punch that
would knock him out. Johnson
is anxious to retire from the
championship and therefore we
may expect a definate announcement shortly. His footwork is
clumsy and slow and Cutler says
Johnson will soon have to get
one or two ten-round fights with
alleged white hopes to try himself out if he is unable to retire
for good.
Thanksgiving Dance
On Monday evening next the
Assembly club will hold its first
dance in the town hall. Good
music will be provided and a big
attendance expected.
The launch Kit-Exchen left
Tuesday morning for the end of
steel with a load of passengers,
mostly from Campbell-Johnston's
party who just returned from
Ground Hog Mountain.
Messrs. J. H. Hetherington of
the Union Bank staff and Paddy
Carr arrived home on Tuesday
after a two weeks stay in Bulk-
ley valley where they indulged in
all kinds of good healthy sport.
Russian Born Briton
(Special to the Herald)
Warsaw, Oct. 25-The British
Consulate here has formally
asked St. Petersburg to define
the status of a Russian Born
British subject who returns to
his native country after having
been arrested as a Socialist. Miss
Malecka, who is noted on the
London Musical stage is awaiting
the reply to know her fate, She
was arrested a year ago, with
thirty others, including women,
who were later tried and banished to Siberia.
BRITISH COLUMBIA
A HIDING PLACE
Sixty Thousand Pounds of Bank of
Montreal Money Idle in This
Province
New Gliders Good
(Special to the Herald)
Kill Devil Hill, North Carolina Oct. 26.-Orville Wright today proved the efficiency of the
new gliders on his areoplane by
remaining near the clouds while
a sixty mile gale was blowing.
His trial was watched with the
greatest interest and it is now
admitted that another triumph
has been achieved.
(Special to the Herald)
San Francisco, Oct. 25 A
prisoner on parol here declares
that he will devulge the hiding
place in British Columbia of
sixty thousand pounds which
were stolen from the Bank of;
Montreal, if he were given his
full liberty. His story is being
investigated. |
Thanksgiving Shoot
There will be a full practice at
the ranges Saturday afternoon
preparatory to the big shoot on
Thanksgiving Day. All who intend to take part in the sports on
Monday should turn out Saturday.
THANKSGIVING
(Written by Rev. D. R. McLean)
Thanksgiving like many other of our institutions has its
roots in the distant past. It originated in the Jewish
Festival called the Feast of Tabernacles, which was celebrated at the ingathering of the earth's increase. On
this occasion there was great rejoicing, when friends and
neighbors united to render thanks to the Lord of the
Harvest. It is not strange that such a custom should
have survived because the spirit of gratitude is an attribute of the race, especially of religious minds. The Pilgrim Fathers in 1631 set apart a day for Thanksgiving in
acknowledgement of their first harvest in America, and it
was perpetuated in many of the States, an annual feast
appointed by the Governor. Its national celebration in
recognition of the year's blessing was first recommended
in a proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863,'
and has since been annually observed and usually it falls
on the last Thursday in November. Very early in
Canada's history Thanksgiving became a public holiday
and has so remained ever since. Until two years ago it
always fell on Thursday but since then Monday has been
chosen as a more convenient day as it lengthens the week
end and thus makes more family reunions possible.

A Forward Move
To keep pace with the times and
to meet the wishes of the people
in the communities surrounding
Hazelton, down the Skeena and
up the Kispiox and Bulkley Valleys
and also to give our advertisers
the opportunity of reaching those
people before the week is out, the
Omineca Herald will in future be
issued early Friday morning thus
connecting with the first mails
going to the outlying sections. In
this move we hope to meet the
requirements of our readers and
advertisers and also to give a
better service in all departments.
We would request our advertisers
to send the copy for their changes
in, not later than Wednesday noon,
instead of Thursday noon.
United Action
Prosperity has been so general
among the people of this town
and   district   in   the   past   and
everything has, as a  matter of
course, flowed into our laps, that
no effort on the part of  business
men has been necessary to open
new channels for business or to
even maintain the old.     Hazelton has heretofore occupied  the
unique and enviable position of a
manopolist.    But the  fact   that
making money has been so easy
the majority here have overlooked the  possibility of opposition
the minute there is easy  access
and egress to this Happy  Hunting Ground.     With  the  coming
of the railway and  the  opening
up of the country and the  vastly
wealthy   resources,   new   towns
and new communities will spring
up, all serving as blood suckers
to suck the life blood out of this
natural supply point, and out of
the people who came in   here to
suffer the hardships of the pioneer in order to develop the country  in advance of the railway.
If things are allowed to drift and
to be wafted hither and  thither
by every wind that  blows  there
is only one result   the scattering
of the population, the division of
trade among many centres  and
serious injury  to   the   development of the district.
All these disasters can be prevented by the people of Hazelton
acting as one united whole.
Stay together and pull together
and the country that nature has
intended to be ours will be ours.
It means money in the pockets
of everyone; a larger and better
town (wherever that town is)
and a concentration of business
that will make Hazelton (New,
Old or South) one of the foremost towns of Northern British
Columbia.
Through the medium of a
Board of Trade, or a Business
Men's Association these results
can be achieved. The time has
arrived for Hazelton people to
act or the best that is in the
country will be taken from us
while we sit idly by and look on.
A Bunch of Business
Within reach of Hazelton lies a
bunch of business that will surpass the total business of the
town today. That which is referred to is the Ground Hog coal
fields, two hundred miles or more
from here, but with Hazelton as
its supply point. A great deal of
trade has been derived from the
coal prospectors last year and this j
year. Next year the total will be
doubled, if not trebled, After!
next year it is difficult to say. At
present the best trail to the coal
fields is from Hazelton up the
Skeena, Kispiox and Stikine
rivers, but when it takes twenty-
six days to go one way and entails the loss of several horses, it
means that a new route will be
found and the traffic and trade1
diverted. This can be prevented
by a united action on the part of;
Hazelton. The trail can be improved���it can be made a road
over which animals and wagons
can travel and make time without danger of life. Stopping!
places can be built along the road;
where animals will find feed and
shelter. At the same time these
improvements are opening up a
territory that will be immensely
productive and always a source
of revenue to Hazelton business
men. The northern route will
soon be a keen competitor for the
coal fields trade, in fact in time
the bulk of the business will go
by the Naas, but with union now
Hazelton can lay the foundation
for a vast business.

BAILEY & KNIGHT
NEW HAZELTON
Along the banks of the Skeena
River for the past three or four
years have been employed several thousand men by Messrs.
Foley, Welch & Stewart, contractors for the Grand Trunk
Pacific right of way. A large
portion of these men are hundreds, if not thousands of miles
from their homes and their
friends, and if not born with an
English speaking tongue have,
since coming to Canada, acquired
it. Day in and day out, month
after month, in all kinds of
weather the work has proceeded
and the men see or hear little
but their work by day and sleep
by night. The magnificent scenery,
of which so much has already
been written, but to which no
writer or artist can do justice,
is nothing to those whose ceaseless toil brings them into contact
with it continually. They are a
lonesome lot of men when it
comes to the pleasures and luxuries of life. They are hundreds
of miles from the business and
social circles or the home fire
place. But they have not been
forgotten and a great work has
been, and is being, carried on
among them.
The Young Men's Christian
Association, with branches all
over the world in every town of
any size, has also a railroad department, and that great institution has been working among
the men affording them pleasure
and enlightenment.
On the Foley, Welch & Stewart
contract Mr. W. H. Morrison is
Secietary and the man in charge,
and had the country been searched a better and more capable
fellow could not have been
found. Early and late, Sundays
and week days Mr. Morrison is
on the go carrying with him that
which enables men to live better,
work better and feel that there
is more in life than work and
three meals a day with a bed at
night. The weary, sick, discouraged and discontented all go
to Mr. Morrison who is the mental
and spiritual physician of the
camps.
The work of the Y. M. C. A.
among   the railway workers is
1 far reaching and beyond the con-
I ception of  the   average    man.
Not only   are   gospel   meetings
i held on Sundays and the men
! thaught those things which help
; them   see   beyond   the   present
i life, but through Mr. Morrison is
| distributed   newspapers,   maga-
j zines, books and literature in  all
forms.    Most of the periodicals
are  late and out-of-date for a
city man, but they are eagerly
sought and earnestly read on the
railway right of way and thus
these men keep abreast of the
times.
Phonographs or gramophones
are now in every camp and thousands of records are in use and
passed from one camp to another
keeping the men up to date in
the musical world. In these railway camps one hears the latest
songs and the newest music sung
and whistled in unison with the
pick, shovel and hammer and by
the teamsters plodding along behind their horses.
This fall Mr. Morrison has established his headquarters at
Skeena Crossing bridge where
from 200 to 300 men will be employed throughout the winter.
Here the Secretary has erected a
building 22 by 40 feet in which
are found many comforts of civilization. He has provided a
large reading room in which are
found the leading papers and
magazines. There are writing
tables with stationery and writ-
ing materials. In connection are
two bath rooms with hot and
cold water; two pool tables; |
checkers, chess and other games,
and a small loaning library.
All these things which do so
much to make life pleasant and
profitable are furnished the men
free of charge although they are
privileged to make contributions
and a movement is now on foot
among the men themselves to
contribute regularly co the institution. By such they are able to
enjoy even more of those necessary luxuries.
Mr. Morrison has as an assistant at Skeena Crossing, Mr. Ed.
iKenny who has charge of that
bamp while Mr. Morrison is visiting the many other camps along
the road between Prince Rupert
and Aldermere and even beyond.
In all the work undertaken by
the Y. M. C. A, the contractors,
Messrs. Foley, Welch & Stewart,
and all their official staff have
given noble and hearty assistance.
They work hand in hand with
Mr. Morrison and his requirements in the way of material,
land, transportation, etc., are
given first consideration. Foley,
Welch & Stewart are expert employers. They know their men
and their needs and they do
everything possible for their convenience and comfort and the
same policy is followed by the
sub-contractors.

hundreds of miles, and many other
reasons.

NEW HAZKLTON is out of the
damp belt, and many people who spend
the whole year in the district say the
winters are not severe���plenty of sunshine and dry air.
Taken from Official Bulletin, B.C.
No. 22, page 23:���
"On the Upper Skeena, about a distance of 50 miles, there are large tracts
of land on both sides of the river,
which, as far as soil and climatic conditions are concerned, I would consider
ideal for successful growing of fruit as
well as for other branches of agriculture. Potatoes, and other garden produce, grow to perfection."
Have you confidence of Merchants on the ground ?
Many Lots already purchased by the
keenest business men of Hazelton (Old
Town). You can safely follow the
judgment of such men.
NEW HAZELTON should be the
centre of a busy population of thousands within a year. Why not? During the past year there was an average
of over two new towns created in the
Canadian West every week. We are
all here to share in this most wonderful
prosperity. We offer you an opportunity to participate in the progress of
the best town for investment on the
line of the Grand Trunk Pacific.

Railroads have been the great feature
in the growth of Western Canada.
NEW HAZELTON, located on the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad is attracting the attention of the whole world, as
all important towns do on the main
line of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad.
Stores are going up. Newspaper,
two or three General Merchandise
Stores, Drugstore, Bank, Restaurant's
and in fact many lines of trade are now
arranging to open in NEW HAZELTON,
Section One. Activity is in that part
of the townsite known as Section One.
The story of NEW HAZELTON is
well known to the public. It is a Town-
site being offered to the public by
successful men. There is positively no
Railroad Company or Townsite Promoter financially interested in the land.
The owners have undertaken to make
NEW HAZSLTONa city of importance
in British Columbia. NEW HAZELTON
piomises to be the rncst profitable city
to the Grand Trunk Paaific along its

John J. Ingalls on the subject of Opportunity, tut the real fact is, Opportunity

NEW HAZELTON is reported by
Engineer's to be the only available spot
in the Skeena or Bulkley. Valleys for
many miles each way where it would be
possfble to have the Railroad yards

District's business.
NEW HAZELTON affords a long,

WALKED FROM
BIG CANYON
Wm. Davis Studied the Work of Railway Contractors���Rails at the
Bridge by Christmas
Mr. Wm. Davis of the Interior
Lumber Co., has been in Vancouver on business for several
weeks. He arrived home on
Monday having walked up from
the Canyon. Although the distance is long the tramp is not a
hard one or one to be dispised.
The grading for the right-of-way
is practically completed right up
to New Hazelton and the walking is good. It also gives the
pedestrian a splendid opportunity
to carefully observe the work
that has been accomplished, and
this Mr. Davis took advantage
of. As to the statements that
the rails will be laid to the
Skeena Crossing bridge he says
there is no doubt. The big tunnel is going ahead rapidly and i
on this side of it the company have two pile drivers
working all the time putting in
tressels for the bridges. All the
bridges will be small ones and
there is nothing to delay track
laying until they reach the
Skeena Crossing. As soon as a I
train can run over the rails steel,
cement and supplies will be
rushed forward for the bridge,
and hundreds of tons of supplies
for the contractors will be rushed
up and from there hauled out
through New Hazelton to the
Bulkley Valley.
While in Vancouver Mr. Davis
said that everybody was asking
about the silver and lead mines
up here and about the townsite.
The advertising that has been
done thus far has been doing
good work and Hazelton is coming to the front and with the
railway coming in next year the
whole district will witness a
great boom.

trees, to the beautiful little Two
Mile Creek that has its source
away up in the silver lead mountains, a lone and strayed prospector kicked up some dirt on a
hog's back in the centre of Mr.
Coppock's farm, Bulkley Gardens No. 1, and his eyes saw the
sparkle of the precious yellow
metal. He broke a piece a rock
off and showed it to Mr. Cop-
pock who had it assayed, and
there is gold in the rock. The
ground is now being prospected
and the owner of the farm has
joined forces with the prospector and they are coutinuing investigations. It is to be hoped
it turns out well. There is:
nothing known of this country

The business section of New
Hazelton continues to grow.
This week there was a transfer
of lots, the first since the towns-
site was put on the market. Mr.
Roy Miller sold his property on
Thirteenth Ave. to Mr. Jas. Hod-
der, a well known rancher of the'
Bulkley Valley who will establish
feed stables and build a bunk
house for the accommodation of
the freight teams hauling out to
the valley all winter.
i
R. J. Carson will enlarge his
restaurant on Thirteenth Ave. in
order to accommodate the big
transient trade that will pass his
door.
The G.T.P. are continuing the
construction of their sidings in
both section one and section two
and when finished they will have
fine yards.
Beli Tadick is erecting a hotel
and rooming house and the Pioneer restaurant has been opened
by Mr. Peacock.
Arrangements are being hurried for the erection of the Union
Bank which will have a branch
near Foley, Welch & Stewart's
offices.
The office staff from the Sealey
headquarters arrived on Monday
and are now about settled and
ready for business.
Several Hazelton people were
visitors in town this week and
they all expressed surprise and
admiration of the splendid progress this town is making.

Messrs. Macdonald and McDonald have just completed
their season's work, having gone
in last June and worked steadily
all summer. They have two
drifts giving a vertical depth to
the ore of 35 feet.
The owners will be around
Hazelton for a while and if they
do not decide to work on some of
the properties around here they
will go down south f orthe winter.

Immense Low  Grade Property That
Can Be Easily Worked By
Steam Shovel
The Babine Mining district
which is tributary to Hazelton,
is coming in for recognition
more and more. The Islands in
Babine Lake are highly mineralized and during the past summer good samples of ore have
been brought in from several of
the claims staked in that vicinity within the past year. On
Wednesday another group of
claims was heard from. Messrs.
H. J. Macdonald and A. M.
McDonald brought in samples
of yellow copper taken from a
I property they staked which shows
an immense body of ore. It is a
low grade property but one that
may be worked by steam
shovels. It is low and no tram
will be necessary. The main

Hazelton, B.C.
To talk about a country and to
believe in the future of the country is one thing that will help
some, but when a man will back
his opinions and talk with his
money he is helping a country a
whole lot. Mr. H. Coppock, a
native of Kansas City, Mo., and
who still holds large interests
down there, blew into Hazelton
a year ago last June with $25,000
in his pockets. Mr. Coppock is
a man of years; his hair is white
and he is a little stooped, but
otherwise he has the energy and
the ambition of youth. He is on
the go early and late and never
lets an opportunity go by without
singing the praises of Hazelton
and the Bulkley Valley.
As soon as Mr. Coppock arrived and settled in a room he
started out on the warpath. He
was here to invest some money.
He first wanted to know how to
invest that money, and not let
it out on a wild cat proposition.
He planted some potatoes and
when the time came he started
in to harvest his crop. The first
hill he dug he was surprised.
"I took a whole bread pan full
of 'potatoes out of that hill, and
they were such big fellows
weighing as much as four pounds
each. I cut one open and it was
solid and juicy right through. I
just sat down on a big stone
nearby and I figured the whole
thing out. What I want here,
says I, is land. The fertility
of this soil is wonderful. Do
you know I started in right there
and bought land and I have been
buying ever since."
That is the way this Kansas
City man started in to do business in Hazelton, and he will continue to do business here for
years.
Mr. Coppock has invested his
$25,000 and he owns 18,000 acres
of land, much of which he has
since improved, and he put crops
in many acres and will have several hundred acres under cultivation next season. He has 160
acres at Two Mill Creek which
he calls Bulkley Garden No. 1.
Of this 30 acres are cleared and
some of it is ploughed ready for
seed. It is all surveyed into
one acre lots. He took 1,200
cords of wood off the place which
he is finding a ready market for.
On the railway side of the
Bulkley river he bought 160
acres locally known as Mosquito
Flats, but which he has re-
christened Bulkley Nalley Garden No. 2. He has sixty acres
cleared and ploughed and has
six men at work clearing the
balance. In this he will sow one
hundred acres in oats, one acre
in strawberries and the rest in
small fruits and general farm
produce. He has erected a good
house and a large barn and looks
after the travellers to and from
the valley. He regards this as
his best farm and not an acre is
for sale.
At Twenty Mile he bought
Strawberry Flats of 160 acres
with the railway running right
through the centre, and although
this is one of his Bulkley Gardens   the   name   will    not    be
changed.
Recently Joe McPherson, who
owned 160 acres at the foot of
Hudson Bay Mountain, disposed
of his farm to Mr. Coppock.
Forty acres are already cleared
and Joe will be employed all
winter clearing another forty
acres and enclosing it with a
wire fence the new owner will
take out when the sleighing is
good. This is Bulkley Valley
Garden No. 3 and it is at the
turning of the trail up to the
great native silver property so
recently discovered.
One of the first farms the man
from Missouri bought was the
Cullen Farm in the Kispiox
which has been offered for sale
but this week taken off the
market. "I have no land for
sale," says Mr. Coppock.
By degrees this veteran speculator and land improver has
gathered together some of the
choicest land and he is making
farms out of them. In another
year the crops from his land will
bring him in a big revenue and
he will have a string of Bulkley
Valley Gardens that a prince
might be proud to own. But
Mr. Coppock does not want
money. He could never hord it.
He wants to invest it and work
with it, and he does it in a way
that developes a country and
makes the nation wealthy.
Ever since he came to town
Mr. Coppock has been doing
things. He had a livery business, feed stables, buys and sells
horses, built houses and barns,
put in the only platform weigh
scales in the whole Northern Interior. He has helped men out
of difficulties. In fact he is a
"Live One" and he will always
be a "Live One". The country
needs more like him.
