CANADA'S LAND
OF OPPORTUNITY
OMINECA DISTRICT AND
WHAT IT OFFERS TO
THE HOME SEEKER
Embraced in a territory three
undred miles long and two hun-
Irfld miles wide, in the centre of
���ritish Columbia,  the Omineca
lining District and the Omineca
i-,and District,  having the same
joundaries, are more   generally
Known as the Omineca District
and might well be an empire in
.tself.
Within this district is a wealth
ind diversity of natural resources
scarcely to be equaled anywhere
else in the world. Farm lands,
coal, precious and useful metal
in the mountains, timber and
j.lacer gold are all here.
Geographically the district
takes in the country between the
Coast Range and the Rocky
mountains and from the fifty-
third parallel to above the fifty-
seventh on the north. Three of
Ce lada's great rivers drain the
a ea, the Skeena, the Fraser and
the Peace, the first and all its
principal tributaries have their
s jurce in the district. Mountain
ranges occur irregularly and all
/ ave a general trend of northwest and southeast.
In climate the country is admirably adapted to become the
home of a great people. Warm
winds from the Pacific Ocean
break what would otherwise be
the rigors of winter in a place so
far north.
In summer the long days give as
many hours of sunlight to the
growing crops as in districts far
to the south. The whole is sub-
iccted to the same influences and
ibout the same temperatures
prevail at the northern and the
outhern ends.
Wild vegetation in the district
is profuse. Wild pea vine and
grasses grow luxuriantly and so
iigh that the tops can be pulled
by a man on horseback without
stooping from the saddle. Red
top, vetches, and other feed for
stock occur almost everywhere
from the lowest valleys to hundreds of feet above timberline,
where from midwinter until snow
tails there is a natural pasture
not to be surpassed. Wild fruits
of various kinds, wild strawber-
ies, blueberries, huckleberries,
raspberries, high and low bush
cranberries, service berries, red
. urrants and gooseberries are to
\,e found in all the valleys in the
j.roper season, and canned, preserved or in the form of jelly
make a great addition to the settlers' winter fare. The natives
also make extensive use of them,
the service berries being dried in
large flat cakes.
Of trees fit to be converted into lumber, spruce and cedar are
the main supply. There is enough
of this timber to supply all local
wants" for many years. Cottonwood trees are plentiful along
the streams; most of the ridges
are covered with black pine and
there is more or less birch which
is largely used for firewood. A
light growth of poplar covers a
large part of the agricultural area.
Timberline is at an altitude of
about five thousand feet aboye
sea level.
Evidences of coal are found
nearly everywhere in the vallevs
and in some instances the coal
formation runs up the sides of
the mountains a considerable distance. Locations already made
in the district total over 250
square miles and more claims are
being staked  each year.   The
News by Telegraph.
THE ATLANTIC   COAST  IS SWEPT
BY A TERRIFIC STORM.
Boston, Dec. 28:- Five million
dollars is the estimated loss from
the blizzard. A tidal wave burst
through the dyke at Chelsea and
forced 2,500 people in the poorer
section to flee scantily clad into
the raging storm. Many were
barefooted and stood hours waiting to be rescued. In Boston the
tide swept over the wharves and
reached the Chamber of Commerce building. Nine vessels
are reported wrecked. Several
steamers are ashore. The total
number of deaths is unknown.
Paris, Dec. 28:- Southwestern
Europe was swept by a terrific
storm Christmas. Hundreds of
towns and villages are inundated.
Forests are devastated and buildings demolished. Rivers in Portugal are raging from the extraordinary rainfall. All small craft
moored in Douro river were
swept to sea. Several ocean
steamers are ashore. The loss of
life is unknown.
Corruption In Election at New
Westminster.
New Westminster. Dec. 30:-
It has developed there was corruption in the recent civic elections. It is known positively that
22 persons voted twice and there
was one case of impersonation.
A new election will probably be
held. Mayor Keary, who was
defeated by a small majority, declines to run again.
Detroit, Dec. 30:- The car ferry
Bessemer, lost on Lake Erie on
December 7, has been located.
She sank near Conneaut harbor.
Of the crew of 33 people aboard
the bodies of nine were found in
a small boat, frozen stiff. The
remainder of the crew probably
went down with the ship.
Ottawa, Dec. 29:- The amalgamation of the Canadian Brotherhood of Railway Employees with
the Canadian Federation of Labor, which has been pending
since September, has been completed.
Ottawa, Dec. 29:- The first
Canadian warship will be in commission in Canadian waters next
spring. The government has
arranged for the purchase from
the British admiralty of the second class cruiser Rainbow. She
will be used as a training ship.
Managua, Nicaragua, Dec. 28;-
Ex-president Zelaya has escaped
to Mexico. The legacy he left
was an empty treasury. The
country was on the verge of
bankruptcy. Martinez, late minister of finance, has been arrested
charged with misappropriation
of funds and the circulation of
unsigned paper money.
Halifax, Dec. 29:- In the bye-
election in Luenberg, J.D.Sperry,
Liberal, was elected to the Com
mons.
Orangeville, Ont. Dec. 29:-
John A. Best, Conservative, was
elected to the Commons by acclamation. The seat was formerly
held bv Dr. Barr who died recently.
New York, Dec. 29:- Dr. Cook
has been expelled from membership in the Explorers' club as a
result of the investigation into
Cook's claim that he reached the
summit of Mount McKinley. The
claim was rejected as unworthy
of credence.
southernmost locations are in the
vicinity of Fraser lake and those
farthest north are near Ground
Hog mountain, on the Skeena,
over 100 miles north from Hazelton. The seams vary in thickness, the largest so far uncovered
being near the mouth of Telkwa
river, where in three parallel
seams a total of forty feet of
coal is exposed. In quality the
coal of the district varies from a
lignite to bituminous and semi-
anthracite.
Any estimate of the amount
of farm lands in Omineca District
would be but a wild guess. Many
parts are but little known. Agriculture is already carried on at
an altitude of over 2,000 feet and
the limit will be found to be not
less than 2,500 feet. All of the
large lakes of the district are
within this limit.
Local conditions vary. In the
low altitude of the Skeena valley
a great fruit growing industry is
springing up and every success
is attending the enterprise. The
full extent of territory suitable
for fruit growing has yet to be
determined but it has been proved that apple trees will grow at
(Continued on page two.)
New York, Dec. 29:- Several
more vessels are wrecked. Wires
along the coast are down and it
is impossible to estimate the
fatalities, but it is believed the
number will be large.
Chicago, Dec. 30:-The crippled
daughter of an Italian banker is
charged with the theft of $30,000
from her father's bank. An uncle
told the girl to steal so she could
marry his son.
Dubois, Pa., Dec. 30:- The
bodies of seven children have
been recovered from the ruins
of their home. The mother was
seriously burned trying to save
them.
Denver, Col., Dec. 30:- The
body of Mrs. Ernest Rupp was
found in the river with her head
crushed and clothes torn off.
The woman had gone to summon
a policeman early in the evening
as she had been frightened by
negroes.
Winnipeg, Dec. 29:- The Canadian Pacific east bound train was
wrecked east of Kenora. Forty
were injured. Details are lacking.
New York, Dec. 29:- Cotton
reached sixteen cents, the highest price in five years. It is predicted that it will go to seventeen
cents. Patten of Chicago and
three others cleaned up thirteen
millions.
Herrin, 111., Dec. 29 An explosion in a coal mine caused the
death of nine people including
the mine manager, engineer and
assistant.
Winnipeg, Dec. 29:- The railways of Western Canada have
made joint arrangements for th<-
gift of two millions for a world'.-*,
fair at Winnipeg, provided it is
postponed until 1914.
St.Paul, Dec. 28:- The striking
switchmen have declared all negotiations with railroad officials
at an end. A general strike may
be called on all railways served
by employees belonging to the
union.
THE FUR
TRADE OF THE INTERIOR.
Ottawa, Dec. 29:- The total
grain crop of Canada for 1909 is
valued at $211,000,000, an increase over 1908 of more than
$100,000,000.
New York, Dec. 27:- The
Christmas blizzard in the eastern
States was the worst in twenty
years. In the vicinity of New
York 18 persons perished. Traffic
was completely blocked.
Constantinople, Dec. 28:-Hilmi
Pasha, the Grand Vizier, and the
entire ministry has resigned because the Committe of Union and
Progress was trying to overthrow them.
A department of trade which
must not be overlooked in considering the resources of this district is the fur business, which
annually brings a considerable
amount of money to Hazelton
and tributaay points. While it
is impossible to obtain exact information as to the output of raw
furs, men familiar with the business state that the annual shipments from Hazelton average
nearly $60,000. There has been
a steady decline in the amount of
fur handled here, due to various
causes, chief of which, perhaps,
is the growing disinclination of
many of the Indians to spend the
winter in trapping. Of late years
they find it easy to earn sufficient
monev to supply their wants by
packing and similar work, while
the preliminary surveys of the
railway afforded work for a considerable number.
Increases in the price of furs
have just about offset the decrease in production up to the
present season. It is expected,
however, that the value of the
1909 catch will be considerably
above the average, due to the
present vogue of lynx fur, which
has recently increased in price
over 300 per cent. Many lynx
skins are shipped from Hazelton'
every season. HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY  1, 1910.
CITIZENS HOLD
MASS MEETING
People of Hazelton Declare Themselves
For a Better Mail Service
The general feeling of dissatisfaction with the present inadequate mail service culminated on
Wednesday evening in a largely-
attended public meeting in the
Mission schoolhouse. Hazelton
and the other points affected by
the service were well represented
when the meeting was called to
order by Dr. H. C. Wrinch, who
was unanimously called to the
chair, J. C. Boyd filling the secretary's chair.
There was no delay in proceeding to the business of the
evening, and as one speaker succeeded another it became evident
that the people of the district
were unanimous in demanding a
better mail service. After thorough discussion of all phases of
the subject, it was unanimously
decided that nothing less than a
full mail service, with a weekly
delivery of all first- second- and
third-class matter offering-
would be satisfactory to the
people of the district. It was
resolved that the requirements
of the district should be brought
to the attention of the postoffice
authorities and the member of
parliament for Comox-Atlin. A
committee consisting of E. E.
Charleson, J. C. Boyd, and C. V.
Smith was appointed to give
effect to the resolution.
On motion of C. V. Smith, it
was decided to memorialize the
department with the object of
securing a branch of the P. 0.
savings bank for Hazelton.
After passing a resolution of
thanks to the chairman and secretary and to Rev. Mr. Field for
the use of the schoolhouse, the
meeting adjourned.
Telegrams expressing the feeling of the people as declared at
the meeting were sent to the
departmental officials and Hon.
Wm. Templeman.   ��� ������:���
TO HAVE ANOTHER STEAMER
FOR THE SKEENA
A syndicate of business men
of Hazelton, Port Essington, and
Prince Rupert has undertaken
the building of another steamer
for the Skeena river. Anticipating a large increase in the
volume of freight and passenger
traffic between Prince Rupert
and Hazelton, the promoters believe an independent steamer
will easily command enough business to make the venture successful. The necessary machinery and equipment have been
ordered, and work on the hull
will begin at once.
LOCAL AND DISTRICT NEWS.
Christmas at the Omineca
On Christmas J. C. K. Sealy
kept open house at the Omineca
hotel, as has been his annual custom. At noon an epicurean dinner was served to all comers, a
a good appetite being the only
qualification required of guests.
The Indian band, which paraded
in the afternoon, 23 strong and
in gala uniform, was commandeered for the evening, and until
a late hour held possession of the
dining room, plaving their entire
repertory, to. the entertainment
of all.    ,.
MINING AND
PROSPECTING
DANCING THE OLD YEAR OUT.
The closing hours of the old
year were marked by several
pleasurable events. At the Ingineca hotel the dancing set was
entertained in an enjoyable manner by the management. At 9
o'clock the bar was closed and
the house turned over to the
guests oi the evening, the spacious diningroom having been
cleai ed for dancing. Excellent
music was furnished by A. Baker
on the violin, assisted at the
piano by H. F. Glassey. Mrs.
Maitland-Dougall also contributed to the success of the evening
by playing several waltzes in a
most acceptable manner.
A t midnight refreshments
were served, after which dancing
continued until two o'clock.
A skating party and several
card parties were also among
the social features of the evening.
Archie Mclnnis and Thomas
Aitken arrived from the upper
valley on Thursday and left this
morning with a piledriver outfit,
weighing nearly two tons, which
is to be used in building a bridge
over Burns lake, on the sleigh-
road to Francis Lake North.
The metal mining industry in
Omineca District is still in the
prospecting stage. From a mining standpoint the larger part of
the district is still unknown, prospectors for the most part keeping to the mountains nearest the
location line of the G.T.P. and,
with few exceptions, those have
been scarcely more than run
over. At a low estimate 500 mineral claims have been located,
however, over a large area.
Winter work is being carried
on this year for the first time.
In the Babine range, 45 miles
southeast of Hazelton, a tunnel
is being driven on the Dibble
group to tap the ore at a depth
of 230 feet. It will be 400 feet
long and will not be completed
before spring. In 1908 development work amounted to 220 feet
of tunneling and shaft sinking,
the longest tunnel being 75 feet
and the deepest shaft 55 feet.
The Dibble group was taken
under bond in 1907 by James
Cronin, one of the best known
mining operators in the Province,
and has recently been turned to
a corporation formed by Mr.
Cronin and associates. No details
as to the amount of ore in sight
or its value can be given but it is
safe to say the property is valuable.
Close by the Dibble is the Law
property where a 40 foot shaft
sunk on the vein, revealed four
feet of ore running high in silver
and carrying 50 to 60 per cent,
lead. The rest of the vein is concentrating ore. There are many
other properties of high merit in
the same locality. In the same
range on the side toward Bulkley
valley is the Pack Train Group.
Values run from $60 to $125 in
silver and copper.

CANADA'S LAND OF
OPPORTUNITY
(Continued from page one)
Hazelton and in Bulkley valley,
near Glentanna, 45 miles up the
valley, P. McPhee has an orchard
of over 100 trees and others
have a smaller number. It will
two years before they will show
results but the trees are thriving
and no possibility of failure is anticipated. Small fruits and berries are prolific.
Th Northern Interior of British Columbia spells opportunity
to the man who is dissatisfied
with his present condition in life.
Whether he be farmer, miner or
business man; whether he is
broke or already has a start the
country can give him chances to
get ahead that will not occur
again. A new transcontinental
railway is opening up a new part
of the province; a part where
Nature acted the prodigal and
squandered her resources with a
lavish hand, creating storehouses
of wealth in the mountains and
valleys. No other country can
show such diversified natural resources in such abundance.
Situated at the head of navigation on the Skeena, about 800
feet above sea level, the village
of Hazelton became a recognized
trading point nearly forty years
ago and since that time has been
the distributing point for that
part of the Interior north of
Francis lake; as far east as the
Findlay and Parsnip rivers; and
200 miles north.
Within a radius of thirty miles
and immediately tributary to the
town, the valley of the Skeena,
Bulkley valley to Morieetown,
Kispiox valley and Kitwangar
valley comprise an agricultural
district of importance.
. Kispiox valley is one of the
rich valleys of the interior country that is attracting settlers in
spite of the adverse conditions
of pioneer life. From the mouth
of Kispiox river, eight miles
above Hazelton, the valley extends north for a distance of 50
miles. Climate and soil are much
the same as in other parts of the
district. According to information received from residents 86
preemptions have been taken.'
For twenty miles from the Skeena the land was reserved from
sale or lease in 1908 and there is
still plenty of good land open for
preemption.
Transportation difficulties have
greatly hampered the settlers but
those troubles will soon be remedied. A wagon road has been
built from Hazelton a short distance into the valley and next
summer will see it extended to
reach the main settlements. Two
bridges are being built in connection with the read, one across the
Skeena and one over the Kispiox.
At the northern end of the
valley and along some of the
creeks there is considerable good
timber.
The valley of the Kitwangar
river, which empties into the
Skeena thirty miles below Haz-
elaon, is not as extensive as Kispiox valley but contains thousands of acres of good land. Being on the same side of the Skeena as the railway, the farmers
will have the advantage of a
short haul to market.
Coal measures show in many
places and workable seams of
semi-anthracite, some twelve
miles up the Skeena, are showing up well. In Nine Mile mountain there is every indication of
a mining camp that will afford
employment to a large number
of men in a short time.
Winter wheat, grown in small
patches as an experiment, yielded from 60 to 90 bushels to the
acre, four varieties being tried
in 1907. 60 bushels was the best
for 1908. 1909 was a poor year
only showing 30 bushels. These
results are quoted, not to advance
the claim that'this country will
grow wheat for other than home
use, but merely to prove that it
can be grown. Other things pay
better. The largest-turnip taken
from a Hazelton garden last fall
weighed 26 1-2 pounds. Single
potatoes weighed four pounds.
Haguel-Get Indians from all
parts of the district assembled in
force on their reserve on Christmas, for the celebration of "Big
Sunday." Father Cocola conducted special services.
"Barney" Mulvaney, with
"Dutch" Kline as his aide, is
carrying the mail between Prince
Rupert and the Canyon, while
Geoge Beirnes covers the section between that point and
Hazelton.

THE OMINECA HERALD, SATURDAY, JANUARY 1, 1910.
h
A DESCRIPTION OF THE
HAZELTON HOSPITAL
THE ONLY INSTITUTION OF  ITS KIND IN THE
DISTRICT AND IS EQUIPPED WITH ALL
THE MODERN  APPLIANCES
Among the points of interest
in and about Hazelton, the hospital holds a promising place. It
has been practically the first institution of public utility in this
extensive interior district.
The construction of the hospital
was commenced in October, 1903.
The first patients were admitted
to its wards on September 20,
1904. For some length of time
previous to that, urgent cases
were cared for and treated in the
superintendent's residence adjacent to the hospital, which had
been built the preceding year.
The site occupied by the hospital buildings is ideal for the
purpose, being about one mile
east of Hazelton townsite, and
situated on the main road to the
Bulkley valley and other interior
points. An area of about twenty-
five acres, surrounding the buildings, has been cleared and en-
by means of an Ericson hot air
engine���the first of its kind to be
installed anywhere in British
Columbia. It delivers the water
into a tank in the attic from
which it is piped throughout the
building, as well as to the superintendent's residence and to a
detached building for the gas
machine. The lavatories are
equipped with porcelain enamel
baths and other modern fittings
throughout and all connected with
an adequate sewerage system.
The building is well heated by
a Copps furnace, in connection
with which are separate flues for
removing the vitiated air at the
same time that the warmed fresh
air is poured into the different
rooms.
A Siche gas plant is another
very satisfactory part of the
equipment. It has been in use
for over three years.   It is some-
closed. This is of great value in
the maintenance of the hospital,
in providing pasturage and winter feed for stock, as well as
for the production of vegetables,
fruit and fresh food of various
character, without which it would
be impossible to offer the variety
of diet that often means everything to a convalescing patient.
Apart from that aspect, the
extensive grounds set off the
buildings and give ample room
for exercise and outdoor amusement for such patients as are
in condition to make use of them.
The main building of two stories
and with basement and attic has
a frontage of fifty-five feet and
a depth of forty-four feet. Across
the south end are two large balconies closed in by French windows and well heated. These
were primarily intended for day
use, in which patients could enjoy all the advantages of the
open air while sheltered from
wind and rain. But they serve
equally well for wards, and have
been so used when other accommodations would be taken up.
The building accommodates
seventeen patients, but by making use of the balconies, six or
eight more could be made comfortable if need be. It is the intention, before next-summer, to
add an extention to the north end
of the main building by which
about eighteed more patients can
be accommodated.
For water, a supply is drawn
from a well outside the buildings
what more expensive than lighting by coal oil and gives a very
much superior light; and its use
reduces to a minimum the danger
l from   fire,   which   would   be a
| standing menace were the ordi-
1 nary hand lamps in use throughout the institution.
Three classes of accommodation are provided���private, semi-
; private and public. The three
1 private wards have been furnished by individual contributors, and
compare favorably with those in
city hospitals in at least providing
everything within reason that
might contribute to the comfort
of the patients. In all classes of
accommodation it is aimed to
give the best possible service and
attendance available.
In the operating room the glass
and enamelled steel equipment,
including operating table, dressing tables, solution stand, etc.,
have been selected from leading
supply houses in Toronto and
| Winnipeg. While reasonable
; economy has been exercised in
the purchase of this costly class
| of furniture, the matter of efficiency has been given first consideration. In both operating
and steralizing rooms everything
is in keeping with the requirements for general surgical work.
Major and minor operations of
all kinds are performed as occasions arise, and the record of
results obtained has been equal
to the average of any of the
larger centres.
When  the hospital started in
1904, the staff consisted of a lady
superintendent, two nurses and
and a male assistant as caretaker.
As the work expanded, as it has
done steadily from the beginning,
it was found necessary to engage I
a matron and allow the nurses to
give   their  entire  time  to the!
patients. During the past season |
the staff has again been increased j
by an additional nurse.
The  latest  tabulated   annual
statement  showed 127 patients
to have been admitted and 3045
days   treatment  to  have  been
given during the twelve months.
The corresponding figures for the
first year's work were 45 patients I
admitted and 944 days treatment, j
Approximately     speaking,   the
volume of work has about trebled j
in the five years the hospital has
been in operation.
In the extent of territory tributary to it, and dependent solely
upon it for such care as it is its
province to afford, the Hazelton
hospital stands almost without a
parallel. Its nearest neighboring
hospitals have been distant ap-
pioximately as follows; to the
west 160 miles, north 400 miles,
east 600 to 800 miles, south 550
miles.
As illustrating this fact it was
noted that, during a period of
about two weeks last summer,
there were patients in the hospital who had come from points
as far distant south as Stuarts
lake (220 miles); north from a-
bove the Ninth Telegraph cabin,
(200 miles); east from the head
of Babine lake, (150 miles) and
west from Port Simpson, (180
miles.) And of the twenty-two
under treatment during that period, all but one had come to their
nearest hospital.

The geographical centre of!
British Columbia is to be found
some 150 miles southeast of Haz-
elton, where, in a beautiful un-
dulating country, lies Francis
and Ootsa lakes, surrounded by
many thousands of acres of arable
land.
Four years ago this district
was beginning to attract attention and a handful of pioneers,
who had preempted land during
the preceding summer, spent the
winter in the country. Each succeeding summer has witnessed a
large influx of land seekers and
a corresponding increase in the
number of settlers, with the result that this section is now
recognized as one of the most
important of the newer districts
of the province.
Francis lake, with a length of
some 60 miles and an average
width of nearly two miles, lies
along the 54th parallel of latitude
and finding its outlet near the
125th degree of longitude through
the Stella river into Fraser lake,
j which in turn gives origin to the
j Neehaco, a branch of the mighty
' Fraser. On the north side of
j Francis lake there is a range of
I low mountains, on the southern
slope of which is to be found
some of the choicest hay and
grazing lands of the district,
while the rolling lands which
here and there intervene between
the mountains and the lake offer
tempting opportunities to settlers
and are already nearly all talen
up, there being an important and
growing settlement about thirty
miles from the head of the lake.
Near the west end of the lake
there is quite a number of pre-
emptors including several German - Americans, the advance
i guard of a colony from Idaho,
who, though successful in that
Estate, have sold out and will,
during the coming summer, remove to Francis lake bringing a
complete outfit, including a sawmill. Near the east end of the
lake a number of settlers, including several families, is established.
On the south side of Francis
lake is one of the largest areas of
good land in the province. Beginning near the west end of the
lake and extending some forty
miles along its length, with an
average width of about eight
miles, is an undulating country
in elevation about 2300 feet above
sea level. In this section are
scores of small lakes, with connecting creeks, draining the
country and affording abundant
water for stock. There is a large
proportion of land on which there
is a remarkably heavy growth of
vegetation, including peavine,
vetches, rye grass, red top and
other native grasses of value for
stock. On the drier knolls and
sidehills there grows a short
species of bunch grass which is
probably the most nutritious wild
feed in the country. Horses
turned out to"rustle" during the
fall and early winter keep in ex
cellent condition  on this grass
and in the swamp meadows.
Much of the best land is covered with poplar, usually of the
smooth-barked variety. Through
this timber there is almost invariably a profuse growth of
peavine and grass. Even in the
pine timber there is usually a
good deal of grazing. This pine
land is not, as in many sections,
of a gravelly nature but appears
usually to be silt, which is also
the character of the subsoil in
i the open and poplar land, where
I it is covered by from six to twenty
i inches of black vegetable mould.
There can be no doubt that much
of the pine land in this district
will grow excellent hay and will
eventually be taken up and cultivated. At present, however, open
and partially open poplar lands
are to be obtained at a lower
price per acre than it would cost
to clear the pine land.
This section boasts a prosperous settlement, many of the pre-
emptors having effected considerable improvements.
*    *     *
Ootsa Lake.
Lying from ten to twenty miles
south of Francis lake is Ootsa
i lake, which has a length of forty
miles and an average width of
, two miles. It finds its outlet in
the Upper Neehaco river. Along
the north side of this lake and
| extending back to the range of
low hills which forms the devide
between it and Francis lake, lies
a country similar in character to
that on the larger lake, but of
lesser extent. The first settlers
in the district located here, and
the settlement has steadily grown
during the last four years until
it has begun to assume the aspect
of a prosperous farming community. A number of families located on Ootsa lake during last
summers
On the Tahtsa river, the principal stream running into Ootsa
lake, and on the Nadina river,
which carries a large volume of
water into Francis lake, and in
other parts of the district, tributary to the two lakes, there is
much good land although only a
few actual settlers have taken
up land, excepting in the districts
above described.
It has been demonstrated that
roots and vegetables can be successfully grown on Francois and
Ootsa lakes, while oats, barley
and Russian wheat yield large
crops. Those competent to judge,
however, maintain that dairying
will be the prindipal business
here, the conditions being unusually favorable for that business.
Cattle have to be fed about four
and a half months in winter, but
the growth of wild hay and cultivated grasses is so heavy that
the expense of winter feeding is
not formidable, while from early
spring until December there is
unlimited pasturage.
The climate is unusually pleasant and equable in summer. Winter is uniformly cold anddry. The

The number of people seeking
new homes in the West is greater
now than ever before. Until
the last few years the western
United States weie absorbing all
the homeseekers. A short time
ago that country realized that its
public lancis were gone. It was
then the great movement into
Canada started. Now Canada is
drawing a large part of the emigration from Great Britain and
Europe and thousands of native
Americans are coming across the
line every year. British Columbia, being the farthest removed
from the source of this immigration has been the last to receive
jthe benefit. The prairie provinces
are being settled at a rapid rate
because the country is easily
reached.
British Columbia is welcoming
thousands of new people every
year but the number is nothing
compared with what the Province
has ample room for. With the
railway construction now under
way completed this province will
have the last barrier to its rapid
occupation removed and, the
transportation problem settled,
this province will be the scene of
a great rush. The Northern Interior of British Columbia, the

THE  HAZELTON
POSTOFFICE
That Hazelton is becoming
quite important from a postal
point of view may be judged
from the fact that, on the average, 6,000 letters are received at
the postoffice here each month
from outside points, while the
number of letters mailed in the
same time is nearly 4,000. When
it is realized that this amount of
mail, instead of being spread over last of the West, wi
the month, must be handled in | in record time,
two batches, it will be seen that
Mr. Sargent's staff has its strenuous moments.
In addition to handling all the
mail, Fred Field, the ever-courteous assistant postmaster, transacts considerable business in the
money order department. During
the last half of 1S09 the money
orders issued and paid in the office total led $42,075. This branch
of the postoffice business has
proved of great benefit to the
people of the district.
Having in view the magnitude
of the business transacted in the
local office, it can hardly be maintained that the postoffice department has treated us fairly in the
matter of mail service, with only
two mails a month in winter, including practically nothing but
letters. The first steamboat up
the river last spring carried over
fifty sacks of mail for this office.
This large amount of matter had
accumulated during the winter,
being the excess over the maximum weight of 400 pounds a
month which the mail contract
provides for. During the present winter, it is reported, even a
larger quantity of mail is accumulating at Prince Rupert, and, if
no relief is granted, there will be
an enormous amount of overdue
mail to come up when navigation
opens.
HOW SUPPLIES ARE TRANSPORTED IN NEW B. C,
As roads are gradually extended throughout the district freight
wagons begin to replace the pack
trains which have for so many
years carried supplies from the
stores and warehouses of Hazelton to tributary points. The day
of the packhorse is not yet past,
however, for Hazelton is still the
centre of the largest packing industry in North America. During
the summer there is a constant
succession of packtrains leaving
with supplies for all points within 200 miles on the north, east,
and south. Over 800 horses and
mules are used in the business,
in which, also, about 100 men
find profitable employment.
The number of pack animals in
a train varies from half-a-dozen
to seventy, there being four at
least which approach the maximum number. Each animal is
given a load of not less than 200
lbs. weight, some carrying as
much as 400 lbs.
From Hazelton's seven stores
hundreds of tons of supplies are
shipped during the summer, the
greater proportion, of course, going to the Bulkley valley and
other points to the south. To
give a close estimate of the total
amount of goods so handled is
hardly possible; but that it is very
large may be judged from Hie
fact that the amount of freight
packed over the comparatively
unfrequented Babine trail last
season was 164 tons. Of this 144
tons comprised shipments to in-
I terior posts of the Hudson's Bay

THE TIDE OF
IMMIGRATION
The rate of human achievement
in all lines of material progress
is gaining speed with every year
that rolls around. Especially is
this so in the settlement of new
countries. What it took a century
to do in the early stages of Canada's development is now being
done in a decade.
The construction of new railroad lines is altogether responsible for this. People are no longer
accustomed to moving their effects to a new country in a wagon. One of the first sources of
revenue to Canada's new railways is the transportation of
settlers and their goods.

VALLEY FARMERS
ARE PROSPERING
WHAT THE BULKLEY VALLEY
RANCHERS ARE DOING TO
DEVELOP THE COUNTRY
Of the various districts reached from Hazelton the most prominent in the public eye is the
Bulkley valley. Besides the large
ccal and mineral areas of which
it is the centre, this valley,
extending over 100 miles southeast of Hazelton, contains many
thousands of acres of good agricultural land, a good part of
which is being developed by the
settlers who have flocked in since
the building of the G. T. P. became a certainty. The railway,
which will traverse the whole
length of the valley, will, on its
completion, remove all the difficulties of transportation, which
have heretofore kept the district
isolated, and will give the farmers
and ranchers access to one of the
most extensive markets in the
West.
The experience of settlers in
the valley has proved that mixed
farming will pay in this district;
but there is little doubt that
among the principal industries,
if not, indeed, the chief ones a-
mong the agriculturists, will be
dairying and stock raising. For
this business the country is admirably adapted, and within a
few years we may confidently
expect to see large and prosperous communities drawing revenue
from creameries and packing
houses.
It has been demonstrated that
cats, barley and rye will mature
and yield large crops, the same
claim being made for fall wheat;
while potatoes, roots of all kinds,
and vegetables grow abundantly
and of excellent quality. Small
fruits in great variety are successfully grown, rivalling in size
and flavor the products of noted
fruit districts far to the south,
Apple trees are thriving where-
ever they have been planted, but
none are old enough to come into
bearing. Owners are sanguine,
however, as to their success.
Space, unfortunately, will not
permit of an adequate description
of Bulkley valley in this issue.
In general, it may be said that
the country is rolling, covered in
part with a growth of timber,
including spruce, pine, poplar,
willow, etc. There are many
open and partly open patches,
where successive fires have
cleared the ground of resinous
timber, making room for the rapidly growing poplar and rank
vegetation which has deposited
over the clay a valuable stratum
of vegetable mould. It is on land
of this character that a majority
of the present settlers are located
and the results they have achieved in growing hay and other
crops leaves no question as to
the fertility of the soil.
Nearly all land suitable for agricultural purposes has been taken up, spruce and pine lands being cleared in some parts of the
valley, the potential value of the
land^being greater than the cost
of clearing. Large crops of hay
are being taken from land of
this description.
Already settlers find a lucrative
market for all their produce,
while many secure a good income
by wintering horses instead of
selling their hay. As railroad
construction proceeds up the valley a much larger market will be
open to the lanchers, and as
prices for produce will remain
very high for several years many
will be enabled to place themselves in an independent position
by the time the railroad is completed.
As an example of what may be
done in Bulkley valley we may
��� cite the Diamond D ranch, own-
I ed by C. Barrett & Co. and locat-
i ed 80 miles from Hazelton, near
the highest part of the valley.
The original ranch of the Diamond D consisted of 320 acres,
being the second pre-emption to
be taken in Bulkley valley, and
was located in 1901. Year by
year more land has been added
until there are now 3,120 acres,
obtained with South African war
scrip and by purchase from the
Provincial Government. 1,000
acres are cleared and under cultivation.
Hay is the main crop of which
about 500 tons was cut in 1908,
that being the only year for
which figures are available. 14
tons of hulless barley and 30
tons of oats were raised the same
year. The potato crop amounted
to 30 tons. In seven years they
have had no crop failure. Fall
wheat has been grown with great
success but, owing to a lack of a
market until the railway is built,
it was only planted as an experiment and for home use.
Of the 300 horses and
mules owned by the firm a part
winter at the Diamond D, the
rest being sent farther south. It
has been the custom of the firm
to drive beef cattle from the
Chilcotin country in the summer,
the drive being held at the ranch
and distributed as needed. Hogs
are kept and the only fresh pork
sold this winter was brought
from the Diamond D. It is worth
mentioning that the first three
hogs were taken to the ranch at
an expense of $25 each, being
carried from Hazelton, by Indians.
The place is equipped with
first class buildings and a full
outfit of farm machinery, representing an investment of several
thousand dollars. Twelve to
fourteen men are employed in
summer and six or seven in winter.
The Diamond D is quite the largest farming enterprise in the
Northern Interior, in amount of
acreage under the plow and capital invested. The owners are
men of experience and ability,
who know what they are about,
and the growth of the place to
its present size proves their faith
in the future of the valley. The
ranch is in a position to make
money now and in the future.
The neighboring towns of Aldermere and Telkwa are situated
56 miles from Hazelton, the former on the main wagon road
through the valley and the latter
on the bank of the Bulkley opposite the mouth of the Telkwa.
Good accomodation may be obtained at either point.
Travelers through the valley
find no difficulty in obtaining all
necessary accomodation. Twenty
miles from Hazelton Ed LeBlond
conducts a stopping place, while
at Glentanna, 42 miles south of
here, Harry P. Jones, an experienced hotel man, has, in the
Glacier House, a well appointed
hostelry where the guests are always made comfortable.
The valley is already feeling
the first effects of the coming
railway through increased activities in all lines, caused by the
right of way work now going on
and the employment of a crew
of men on the G. T. P. coal properties on the west side of the
Bulkley river, near the mouth of
the Telkwa.
THE GRAND TRUNK
PACIFIC R.R.
A Brief Description of This   Remarkable Railroad.
One of the chief factors in the
development of the vast district
tributary to Hazelton will be the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway.
This remarkable road, which will
open up a vast empire ol boundless natural resources, marks a
new era in railroad construction.
When completed it will possess
enormous advantages over all
other transcontinental railways,
not only providing a much shorter route for transpacific business,
but having as well the benefit of
much easier grades, greatly reducing operating expenses. As
illustrating this, a comparison
with other transcontinental lines
will not be out of place.
The G. T. P. has a maximum
grade of twenty-one feet to the
mile, or four-tenths of one per
cent, against east bound traffic,
and twenty six feet, or five-tenths
of one per cent, as a maximum
grade against west bound traffic
on the western division. On the
eastern division it will have thirty- one feet to the mile as the
heaviest grade, There is only
one summit to be crossed, the
Yellowhead Pass, at an altitude
of 3,712 feet. The total amount
of ascent will be, east bound,
6,990 feet and west bound 6,890
feet. As compared with other
transcontinental lines this is very
little. TheC. P. R., with two
summits, has a maximum grade
of 237 feet to the mile on east
bound traffic and  116 feet   on
west bound traffic. The total
amounts of ascent are, east
bound, 23,106, and west bound,
2?-, 051 feet. The Great Northern
and Northern Pacific have each
three summits to cross, with
maximum grades each way of
116 feet to the mile and total
amounts of ascent of 15,987 and
17,830 east bound and 15,305 and
17,137 west bound, respectively.
The Santa Fe system has six
summits on its route, with maximum grades of 175 and 185 feet
to the mile, east and west bound,
and has over 34,000 feet of ascent to overcome.
Construction on the G. T. P. is
being rapidly pushed forward
from the east, and contractors
are now busy on this side of the
Yellowhead Pass, while from the
western terminus at Prince Rupert the line is steadily advancing to the Telkwa, 56 miles past
Hazelton. From the Telkwa to
Tete Jaune Cache, a distance of
400 miles, no contracts have as
yet been let; but the surveys are
completed, and construction
awaits only the provision of better facilities for the transportation of supplies. Upon the laying of steel to Hazelton, which is
now but a matter of months, supplies can be easily brought in for
the intervening sections.

MINING AND
PROSPECTING
(Continued from page two)
Silver and lead ore has been
found near Babine Lake at the
south end and on the east side of
the lake a group of claims was
located last yea" on a copper
showing carrying gold.
In the Telkwa mountains, occupying the country between
Telkwa, Morice and Copper rivers, both copper and galena ores
have been found. From some of
the smaller properties remarkably high assays in gold and silver have been obtained. There
are a great many claims staked
and the number is being added
to each season, several rich discoveries being reported for 1909.
On Hudson Bay mountain some
of the fine showings of the district are located. Near the head of
Pine creek, a tributary of the
Telkwa, there is a solid bunch of
about 40 claims. The ore is lead
and silver, the veins varying
from a few inches to five or six
feet in width. A shipment from
the Halley property fcr a smelter
test showed values of $106 per
ton. R. J. McDonell of Hazelton
and Port Essington has been
prominently identified with this
camp since its discovery and is a
large owner in several properties. There are also good copper
showings in several places and
on the west side of the mountain
is a recurrence of the lead ores,
several very promising groups of
claims being located in 1909.
Near Kitselas the ores are
chiefly copper. There are several properties of recognized
merit and numerous discoveries
were made within the year.
Near Meanskinisht, forty miles
down the Skeena from Hazelton,
large bodies of low grade copper
ore have been staked.
Contractors are at work at the
Silver Cup on Nine Mile mountain near Hazelton where 200
feet of tunnel is to be driven.
This property is under bond to a
syndicate of Prince Rupert men.
The vein shows fifteen inches of
ore, assaying over $100 in silver
and lead. Other properties on
this hill have showings of ore up
to thirty inches wide and assays
have shown values up to $200.
Forty or more claims have been
staked. A shipment of five tons
of ore from the Lead King group
is stored in town. This ore will
run about 150 ounces in silver
and 50 or 60 per cent. lead. The
Sunrise group is bonded for $60
000. Four Mile is the name given to a hill on the south side of
Nine Mile, where there are some
encouraging prospects, located
in 1909. Cariboo mountain, fifteen miles north of town, was
found to be mineral bearing and
several claims were staked in
1909.

PLEASANT
VALLEY
THIS IS WHERE THE
FARMERS ARE BUSIEST
Situated about 85 miles south
of Hazelton, and just above the
confluence of the Morice and
Bulkley rivers, is the district to
which the euphonious and not inappropriate name of Pleasant
Valley has been given.
Here, on extensive river flats
and benches the soil is deep and
rich and yields wonderful crops
of hay, while the settlers succeed in raising a plentiful supply
of roots and vegetables for their
own use and for the limited market open to them. Such cereals
as have been tried give good results. The settler's in this part
of the valley are rapidly improving their farms and, by the time
construction starts on that section of the railway, will be ready
to supply a large part of the demand for hay, oats, roots and
vegetables. Judging from the
profusion of native fruits the
cultivation of small fruits will,
in some sections of Pleasant Valley at least, prove a profitable
industry. Dairying will certainly
bring large returns in this favorably situated district.
Along the Bulkley river, from
Pleasant Valley to where the
stream rises,   some 30 miles to
the south, there is a great deal
of land suitable for cultivation
and stock raising. Much of this
has been located for some time,
settlers being well established
at North and South Bulkley and
other points. The lack of any
road or trail along the bend of
the river, between the north and
south crossings has retarded the
development of that part of the
valley, although it contains much
land suitable for settlement.
Several pre-emptors have taken
up quarter sections lately, and as
a road is to be built along this
part of the valley next season,
there is no doubt the development of this part of the district
will be more rapid in the future.
The Bulkley rises in a rolling
country, much of which appears
to be well adapted for stockrais-
ing. Pre-emptions have been
staked here and there and purchasers have also secured much
land.
Over a low, almost level, divide,
known as Bulkley summit, the
waters drain to the south and
east, through Decker lake and
Burns lake to the Fraser. Around
the upper end of Decker lake
there is a great deal of valuable
land of the usual character, rolling, and partly covered with
poplar, pine, and other timber
As the telegraph trail is followed
along this lake and Burns lake
many views of good country are
to be had. Near the telegraph cab
in on Burns lake several settlers
are located. From this point runs
one of the main trails to Francis
lake.
HERE IS SOMETHNG THAT
WILL INTEREST YOU1 : : : :
We are the pioneer cruisers and
land locators in Northern B. C, opening and maintaining the first office
here for that purpose. It stands to
reason that with our experience we
can locate a buyer or preemptor on
something good, quicker and cheaper
than he can locate himself. We
guarantee our work.
If you have surveying to do, or
would like to get an extension of time

THE DISTRICT AROUND
FRANCIS AND OOTSA LAKES
(Continued from page three)
snnwfall -does not often exceed
twenty inches, storms are rare,
and there are few days during
the winter when it is not a pleasure to be outdoors. For years
the Indians of the district provided neither shelter nor feed
for their horses; but an unusually
severe winter, during which they
lost most of their stock, taught
them a lesson by which they
have since profited, and they now
put up sufficient hay to feed their
horses during the latter part of
the winter. The snow is remarkably light and dry, and in
ordinary seasons there is nothing
to prevent horses "rustling" until the spring crust forms.
Although the district is not,
strictly speaking, a game country, there are many opportunities
for sport. The wary mule deer
frequently falls before the rifle
of the experienced hunter; caribou travel on the adjacent hills;
black bear are often bagged; a
few ptarmigan are to be found,
while willow grouse and "fool
hens"  are fairly plentiful and
rabbits abound throughout the
district. In spring and fall the
smaller lakes are the feeding
places of many varieties of ducks
while on the large lakes ducks,
geese, swans and sandhill cranes
are to be seen in large numbers.
The large lakes and some of
the smaller ones contain fish in
great variety, including several
varieties of trout. The few Indians of the district net large
numbers of fish, which are dried
for winter use.
Furbearing animals have been
nearly exterminated, although
there are still numbers of beaver
and muskrat.
Access to this district at present is by way of trails from
Burns lake, on the telegraph trail
to the north side of Francis lake;
from Pleasant Valley to Francis
lake South and Ootsa lake; from
Fraser lake, and from Bella Coola. The construction of the G.
T. P. will, in great part, solve
the problem of transportation in
this district, as the railway will
cross the Stella river only a short
distance from the foot of Francis lake, and steamers on the
lake will afford good transportation facilities to a majority of
the settlers.
During the past season there
has been a considerable increase
in the number of actual settllers
and many newcomers are winter
ing in the district, including several families. A large quantity
of farm stock and machinery has
been brought into the country
and the settlements are taking
on quite a prosperous appearance, While the season, as a
whole, was the most unfavorable
since the first settlers arrived,
the crops of hay, roots and vegetables proved nearly up to the
average, and there is no probability that stock will suffer during the winter.
Residents of the district are
much encouraged by the Government's action in improving
some of the roads and trails.
While a great deal of necessary
work of this nature remains to
be done, the excellent work accomplished during the season is
proving of great benefit to the
settlers. The sleighroad from
the north side of Francis lake to
the G. T. P. line at Burns lake
has been extended several miles,
and will be finished next season.
In the meantime a bridge will be
constructed across Burns lake,
giving the North Side settlers
easy access to the railway. On
the south side of the lake a good
sleighroad has been built through
the main settlement, proving of
great utility to the ranchers this
winter, while the main packtrail
from Pleasant Valley has been
considerably improved. The Oot
sa lake settlers have had little
work done on the trail from the
head of Francis lake, but the
trail to Bella Coola, over which
a large proportion of their supplies is packed, is in very poor
condition. The settlers of this
district have now, however, unanimously decided to affiliate
with the Lake Settlers Association, an organization which has
done much to advance the interests of the Francis lake districts, and with this association,
which now includes practically
all settlers in the Lake district,
working in unison, it is to be
expected that the needs of the
district will be brought to the
attention of the authorities in
such a manner as to secure recognition.

DO YOU WANT A FARM IN BRITISH COLUMBIA?
Do you know that there is an empire lying around Francis lake and the Bulkley valley? And do you know that
this will be the last chance you will have of seeing a great country like this in the beginning? The government is
spending millions of dollars in building railroads, wagon roads, trails and bridges to develop the country, and they
are offering the world the opportunity of reaping the benefit.
The land is of a black loamy soil, and is eminently suited for stock raising and dairying. Every acre can be
put to the plow upon clearing the light growth of poplar now on it.
The land is covered with a wild vegetation that is more luxuriant than any place outside the tropics. The
growth, composed mainly of wild celery, grass and peavine, is oftimes higher than a man's head. Oats, wheat, barley and rye are grown successfully.
The country is being settled by farmers who are giving their attention to the raising of cattle and horses;
hay, in all its varieties, and all kinds of garden truck, in fact, most everything in the mixed farming line is being
raised in great abundance.
The Grand Trunk Pacific is now building a railroad which, when completed, will reach from coast to coast,
tap the interior, and give ample means for transportation, which, up to this time, has been the problem that has
kept the country back. Development has been slow in Canada up to the last few years, but from now on, things
will go ahead with a rush.
The creeks, rivers and beautiful lakes fairly teeming with fish. Small game, such as grouse, ducks and rabbits, are found in great abundance.
When the applicant considers that he has twelve to fifteen months to make final payment, the extremely low
prices, and what is certain, the future high price this land is sure to bring, he need not hesitate to risk his time and
money, as this is the greatest chance in the world today for the man of limited means.
We have secured several thousand acres of land in this part of the country which is now open to purchase.
We act as agents for outside parties, assisting the purchaser to select and file on land suited to his requirements. It
is not necessary to visit the land personally; all the work may be done by representatives, if so wished.
This land is within reach of all who can command a fair salary. Let us locate you. You can make first payment and live at your present location till the railroad is finished, which will be in 1911. Then you will find a ready
sale for your holdings at prices ranging from ten to twenty-five dollars per acre.
Can You Make Money Any Quicker?
We also have improved farms in the Bulkley valley and Francis lake districts, which we consider the best
investment that can be made in this country today.
Over two hundred square miles of coal lands have been located adjoining the Bulkley valley. Five hundred
mineral claims are located in this district. The copper and silver lead prospects bid fair to rival those of the well
known Kootenay. Some of the most prominent mining men in North America are interested and will be in a
position to ship ore in the spring.
We have lived some years in British Columbia and know this part of the country, possibly better than anyone
engaged in the land business.
OUR CRUISERS ARE THE BEST.
