Sidewalks and Streets
At a recent meeting of the Conservative Association a resolution
was passed and forwarded to
William Manson, M.P.P., asking
the Povincial Covernment to
make an appropriation at this
session for the construction of
sidewalks and for street grading
in this town. There is no doubt
but that the appropriation will
be forthcoming owing to the

Government Ownership
Graft, inefficiency and poor
service have always been regarded as the chief features of
government ownership, either
federal, provincial or municipal.
The advocates of individual ingenuity are and have been in
such a vast majority that those
who had real faith in themselves
and their fellow men and who
believed it possible for economy
and efficiency to predominate in
a government controlled enterprise, have seldom been given a
hearing. It is true that the government ownership advocates are
adding to their numbers very
rapidly, but they have still a long
road to travel. Nevertheless the
day is coming when all, or the
majority of the great public utilities will be owned and controlled
by the people through commissions appointed by governments
that are elected by the people.
In Ontario we have an example
of goverment ownership in the
development, and distribution of
electric power from the Niagara
River to all central and western
Ontario. Encouraged by past
successes the Hydro - Electric
Commission is branching out and
harnessing all the commercial
water powers in the province not
owned by private parties, and
even some of these are being
purchased. When the Hydro-
Electric Commission was first
launched the usual cry of graft
and sure failure went out, and
the commission had several hard
fights, but finally won. The result is that Ontario is getting
electric power where they had
none before and they are getting
it at a price that enables them to
compete with the world for industrial enterprises.
But probably the greatest example of successful government
ownership and government control the world has yet had is the
construction of the Panama Canal
by the United States Government. Not; only is the actual
construction of the canal, but
practically the entire commercial
ife of the Isthmus of Panama is
under the direct control of the
Canal Commission. Not only is
the actual construction of the
canal being carried to a successful completion and at a cost that
is amazing the engineering world,
but every branch of the commercial world is making a profit and
at the same time supplying the
people with the very best goods
at prices away below what the
people at home are paying for
the same things, and at the same
time the commission is paying
more for most articles.
In connection with the building
of the canal the Commission runs
on the Isthmus two railways, a
steamship line from Colon to
New York that surpases all com-
petetors for speed, a dozen stores,
restaurants, hotels, and kitchens,
for the different classes of labor.
The cost for board runs from 50c
a meal at the best establishment
to 30c a day at the kitchens (in-
cluing sleeping quarters). There
is also a sanitory department
that has converted the Isthmus
from a fever bed to a delightful
and healthy place to live.
These things have all been
accomplished under government
control, and not one man on the
job gets anything but his salary.
At the same time every man is
devoting his very best energies
to the work, and every little
while something new is brought,
about to reduce the cost of pro-

Thus is Government ownership
I being proven in the United States
and Canada as being posssible,
I practical  and  preferable.     The
! age of money grabbing has !had
swav for years and is at its
height now. The chief aim has
been the accumulation of dollars,
' irrespective of the means adopted.    But the world is not going
; to decay.    There are men,   and
| their numbers are increasing,
who are placing the successful
accomplishment of their ideals
before the accumulation of dollars. The life of our nation, the
development of our country and
the preservation of our resources
depends upon the increase in the
number of men who live for
their country and who work for
something higher than dollars.
May we live to see the passing
I of the commercial age (the age
of dollar kings) and the birth of
the new age when brains, genius
and ingenuity will be directed to
the  perfection  of those   things
which will make the twentieth
century the banner century in

HAZELTON, B.C. Tilt) OMINECA HERALD, FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, 1.11
Hospital Meeting
The annual meeting of the
Hazelton hospital will be held on
Thursday, January 25th. The
past year has been a very successful one and the report that will
be presented at that time will be
full of interest.
Overseas Club
The first annual meeting of the
Overseas Club will be held on
January 25th, for the election of
officers and general business. At
the conclusion of the business
the members will likely join with
those celebrating Bobby Burns
night.
Concrete Buildings
Mr. Lindquist, who has been
in the building business here
during the past season, has de-1
cided to turn his attention to
concrete construction. He is
satisfied that the chief building
material to be used in New Hazelton will be cement and as there
is plenty of sand and gravel in
the immediate vicinity concrete
buildings will be the cheapest
and even better than any other
material. He says that when the
rails are as far as the new town
he believes that cement can be
brought up at a price that will
enable him to erect permanent
structures at a cost even less than
the present cost of lumber. Mr,
Lindquist has had considerable
experience in concrete work and
he will shortly make a trip below
to make enquiries as to securing
cement and for the transportation of it.

Work is progressing very favorably on Silver Cup Mine. This
winter the staff is working on a

is now in about 65 feet and some
very fine ore is being taken out.
This tunnel, or drift, is some six
hundred feet below the one driven last winter. As soon as the
spring opens up and the danger
from the snow is passed, work
will be resumed on the Cup Vein
and with a larger force than
ever.

Silver Cups as Bonspiel Prizes
North Battleford, Sask. Railway development on a large
scale has been scheduled for
North Battleford and the immediate vicinity for the coming year.
Particularly stimulating to local
values is the decision of the C. P.R.
to run their new line across the
river into North Battleford. It
is now only about seven years
since the first railway was built
through North Battleford : but
to-day practically all homesteads
in the near vicinity of the road
have been taken up. In these
seven years the town of North
Battleford has expanded from
practically nothing into a city of
over 3,000, having her own municipal water works, sewerage,
electric light plant and public
buildings, all of the latest and
most approved type. The town's
first big bonspiel booked to open
January 15 is now engaging the
attention of the leading citizens,
and six handsome trophies have
already been secured as prizes.

Record Shipment of Thoroughbreds
Vancouver,   B. C. ��� Irving H.
Wheatcroft,   an  American,   and
owner   of   several   large    stock
farm? near Lexington, Kentucky,
is  telling of a record shipment
which he effected from St. Paul
to   Vancouver a few days ago
over the Soo Line and the Canadian Pacific.    The shipment consisted of 150 thoroughbred horses
booked through to Australia via
Vancouver.     The   special   train
carrying these horses cut down
the usual time of freight shipments over this route by many
hours,   the time occupied being
a little less than four days.    Mr.
Wheatcroft's only stipulation of
importance at the time of shipment was that the horses should
be delivered in good condition at
the docks.    Railway officials are
j now preparing for an extraordinary inrush of new settlers into
! Canada  in   1912,   one   estimate
! setting   the   figure   at   400,000.
| Leading bankers are also issuing
forecasts of a banner year   of
[prosperity and expansion.
j
Prosperity Is Substantial
Regina, Sask. The proposition
of Malcom Ross, superintendent
of parks, to plant 1000 shade
trees along Regina thoroughfares
during the coming year is regarded as typical of Western enterprise in this part of the province.
"The more we can plant the
better it is for the city at large."
says Mr. Ross. "I am paying
particular attention to the securing of trees to be planted the
coming year, and believe that by
the end of the season we shall
have planted at least double as
many as were planted in Regina
in 1911." Real estate men affirm
that the prosperity behind this
j movement is sound and substantial, it being pointed out that
Regina is now the sixth city in
the Dominion in postal revenue,
the figures in the last annual report of the Postmaster General
reaching a total of $103,566.

A Growing Implement Centre
Swift Current. Sask.-W. Oswald Smyth, solicitor for the town
of Swift Current, stated in a recent interview that steps are now
being taken to have the limits of
the corporation extended to take
in   sub-divisions  that have been j
added during the year just pass-;
ed,   and   which now   practically
form part of the town. A special
feature  of  the   town's   present
rapid growth is the large number
of wholesale and implement concerns that   are   locating   ware-
1 houses at this point,  so that it
.has been found necessary to set
! aside a district for the location of
| warehouse and  industrial  sites.
j Mr. Smyth also stated that close
in acreage properties have recent-
j ly been selling at all the way
! from $150 to $500 per acre.
Good Progress at Biggar
Biggar, Sask. -Prominent railway officials state that the new
Biggar Calgary line now nearly
completed will be the longest and
most important of all G.T.P.
branch lines in Western Canada.
Something like 50 miles of this
branch line are expected to be in
operation early in the year. It is
noted that Biggar was not even
incorporated as a villiage until
the spring of 1909; and the town
now takes its place as the terminus and junction point of the
new- line of steel. The fact that
Biggar is the first town in Western Canada on the G.T.P. line
between Winnipeg and Edmonton
to instal a thoroughly modern
water works system is also pointed out as indicative of the energetic spirit now permeating this
section of the west. Building
operations for the year show a
neat record in net results.

B.C.
G. T. P. Townsite Co.
(By Bruce in the Saturday Sunset)
The Railway Commission does
not recognize the divine right of
railway corporations to treat all
law and ethics with unconcern
and disregard the rights of individuals. Some time ago the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway Company
made a contract with Mr. Robert Kelly, of Vancouver, by
which it agreed to locate its station near the town of Hazelton,
B. C, on a certain lot which Mr.
Kelly and his associates duly
subdivided and blue-printed with
! the intention of creating a town-
site which would develop in the
natural course of events into a
town. After the company had
solemnly agreed to do this it
changed its mind, and the locat-
, ion of its station to another lot,
and when Mr. Kelly remonstrated, the company merely
smiled and asked him what he
was going to do about it. Mr.
Kelly tried to get an injunction
in the British Columbia courts to
restrain the company from changing the location of the station,
and thus erasing his young town-
site from the map, but failed.
The justice of the Supreme Court
who was asked to grant the injunction, decided that the court
had not the necessary jurisdiction. He suggested the Railway
Commission, making a few brief
but critical remarks about the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
Company.    So  Mr.    Kelly  com-
j plained to the Railway Commission. This is a modern instance
of persona! government as it was
: in  the days of Harun al Raschid
j of blessed   memory,   and   is  the
fairest court in the land. Judge
May bee, a just and equitable
judge, is the court, and he does
not quibble but delivers pure
justice in a simple and direct
j manner. He hands out his decisions without any respect for the
| divine right of the railways to
rule Canada. When this embodiment of old-fashioned justice
[ heard the case of Robert Kelly
! against the Grand Trunk Pacific,
| he grew warni with indignation
at the cool villainy of the railway
company, "if any private individual," he said (if the daily
newspapers reported him rightly), "had done what the Grand
Trunk Pacific has attempted to
do in this case, he would have
been sent to the penitentiary, and
rightly so. I have never known
of a more deliberate attempt to
deprive an individual of his
rights, and I want to say so most
emphatically." And he ordered
the railway company to locate its
station at the point it had agreed
to. The fear of corporations
does not influence the decisions
of Judge Mabee. God and public opinion are the only things
feared by this impartial judge.
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company has taken off the
dignity of a large railway corporation like a coat and stooped to
townsite deals that would be unworthy of a two-spot real estate
shark. Perhaps those who have
tricked and deceived and buncoed
and clone the questionable work
think that the law cannot reach
them because they are cushioned
and walled in by the prestage of
the big railway. At any rate,
they have done so much of it
that decent   people will   regard
any future Grand Trunk Pacific
townsite with suspicion. For
over a thousand miles the land
department of this transcontinental railway has spotted the
map with townsites. A town-
site is a station, or the promise
of one, a blue-print, and a name
on the railway map. The land
department of this great railway
has worked its way from east to
west across the geography of
Canada leaking townsites and
spreading desolation in the shape
of broken agreements and "sore"
land-owners behind them. The
thrifty Grand Trunk Pacific officials have conspired against land
companies and against private
owners and have held them up
like brigands. They have acted
like robber barons. There are
other cases besides Robert Kelly's. There is a townsite called
Fort Frazer, promoted with honest intent by a Vancouver firm
that deals in a large way in land
-but that is a storv of itself.
The land departments of American railway companies achieved
renown for a shady business
creed, and added several cubits
to the reputation of the American
nation for smartness and getting
away with it, but the Grand
Trunk Pacific land department
can show them some speed. The j
business ardor shown by these
merry gentlemen is most attract- j
ive to students of criminology. |
Every day I hear of some grotesque townsite deal in which their
deft brainwork is shown. The
map of Western Canada will be
an interesting document when
they get through with it. They
have not only abolished promising townsites whose owners  re
fused to "come through" and
shuffled others like a deck of
cards, but they have shunted
whole established towns, with
graveyards and churches and
saloons all complete and flourishing, because the town simply
had to go to the station if the
station would not come to it. It
is pleasant to observe that doing
all this has not diminished the
worldly prosperity of these empire builders whose footsteps are
towns in the larval stage. Their
up-to-date business methods are
very interesting. If you happen
to own a townsite. or land on
which one might be located, on
the line of railway, you can have
a station if you "come across"
to the proper amount. If you
don't, you can hold a post-mor-
tum on your townsite. for you
won't get your station. Even if
you do you are never sure
whether these changeable gentlemen will keep their agreement
with you. Robert Kelly thought
he was sure, but it was a case of
"off-again-on-again - Finnegan"
or Kelly.

New York Stock Exchange Hampered
for the Lack of Collateral
(Special to the Herald)
New York, Jan. 11.-On Tuesday morning fire broke out in
the Equitable Building and damage amounting to six million
dollars resulted. Six lives are
known to have been lost and the
list may reach twenty, including
the assistant fire chief. The
severe cold and the ice was a
great obstacle to the firemen who
were fighting the flames from
neighboring skyscrapers.
The ruins were so hot to-day
that it was impossible to attempt
to get into the vaults where
there are two million dollars
worth of securities kept and the
stock exchange has thus been
greatly handicapped and much
anxiety is felt.
A Woman In The Case
(Special to the Herald)
Los Angeles, .Jan. 11. In the
arrest of Charles Dean jhere and
of James Holloway in Chicago,
the police believe that they are
close on the trail of the Westminster bank robbers. The
woman in the case is Mrs. Tina
Timmins, formerly of Tacoma,
but who suddenly disappeared.
The police believe that she has
the loot. Holloway has confessed
that he was implicated in the
robbery.

Protest Was Entered
(Special to the Herald)
Hankow, Jan. 11.--A complaint
has been made against the British gunboat Widgeon which
passed by a hundred Europeans
at Chenktu. These people had
only recently reached there from
the troubled centres, having had
to flee for their lives. They had
been fired on and several were
wounded. A protest has been
sent to the British Admiral.
Riots in Paris
Paris, Jan. 11.-Following the
resignation of Foreign Minister.
Deselves Delcasse, who had been
appointed to the marine department which had been left vacant,
the whole cabinet were unable to
agree upon an appointee and he
resigned. Riots occurred today
in which thirty were injured.
The cause was the attempted |
trials of the trades unionists who
were charged with sedition. A
sympathetic strike of four hours
was called and thousands gathered in front of the court house.
The police attempted to interfere
but only caused more and more
trouble.
Peace Fiver Railway

Victoria, Jan. 10.--Preparations are complete for the opening

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.
i>
Nearly all of the Business Houses in the
Old Town of Hazelton have Secured Lots
o
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 as 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
good location without paying someone else a profit.
You Must Have a Lot if you intend to continue in Business in this district.
DON'T PAY SOMEONE ELSE A PROFIT.    BUY NOW FOR YOURSELF AND
SAVE MONEY

Work is being rushed on
on big tunnel at mile 44 and
it is stated that it will be
completed and ready for the rails
by the middle of the month. In
that case it will be ready before
snow slides start, although the
slides will not likely be as bad as
last winter as there is not as
much snow.
All branches of business report good times. The merchants
are busy, the bank is busy, the
restaurants and rooming houses
are working overtime and the
amusement houses are doing well.
The trade is growing- faster than
the merchants can replenish their
stocks, but as soon as the first
rush of freight from the end of
steel is over there will be a lot
of local freight landed, and then
the stores will be in shape to
serve the people.
No More Hockey?
A great many people are wondering if there will be no more
hockey this winter. Is one game
and one success enough? At
least one more game should be
arranged, even though it is only
with a scrub team.
Boosting Hazelton
Probably one of the most effective boosters the Hazelton district
has is E. L. Stinson whose office
is at 52 1-2 Hastings street, Vancouver. From time to time Mr.
Stinson sends to the Herald copies of the literature he is constantly sending out boosting this
district. The last is a handsome
booklet giving the story of the
First to Hazelton Automobile.
The story was written from P. E.
Sands log book and the illustrations are from photos taken by
W. E. Curtis, who accompied Mr.
Sands. Mr. Stinson is conducting a Hazelton information bur-
eau and he is doing a good work.
