HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1908.
No. 23.
Kansas City, Mo., December 10���
John Sharpe, a street preacher, with a
woman and five children preciptated a
riot near the police station. When two
officers attempted to arrest them
Sharpe fired, killing one policeman and
wounding the other. A dozen policemen
quickly gathered to the scene and began
closing in on Sharpe, firing as they
Wept. Sharpe was seriously wounded
and taken prisoner.
The woman took the children and ran
to a house-boat on the river where they
had been living, and with a shotgun in
her hands defied the officers. But when
she saw that the police did not hesitate
she gathered two of the children, jumped into a rowboat and started across
the river. The police then fired a volley,
one shot tearing away part of a little
girl's face.   The woman surrendered,
A little oyer a year ago Sharpe
became notorious in Manitoba and
Saskatchewan through leading a band
of followers through these provinces:
He was attempting to ftmnd a colony
of those who adopted his own peculiar
religious beliefs; but, although successful in keeping clear of the police and
immigration officials, popular sentiment
compelled him and his followers to
abandon Ihe attempt and leave Canada.
St, John, Nfld.. December 9���In the

There is a general revolt against thb
hazen governrrierrt throughout the

a scalp wound and had an ear cut in
half before assistance arrived.
St. Louis, Mo., December 10���-Francis D. Hirschberg, a millionaire of this
city, was the victim of a mysterious
shooting at the family home last evening, from the effects of which he died
shortly afterward. There were no witnesses to the affair and members of the
family claim he was killed by an assassin. He had been preparing to leave
the house, late in the evening, when
the shot was fired. A revolver found
at the foot of the stairs was the property of Hirschberg.

gang of diamond thieves were captured
in this city while attempting to substitute an imitation stone for a $325 gem

Markle who, although unarmed,* put a
hand to his hip pocket arid called on the
crooks to hold up their hands, which
they did until the police arrived. Two

Portland, Oregon, December 11���
Three unmasked mon entered the East
Side bank this afternoon and, at the
point of a gun, forced President New-
hall and his son, the cashier, into the
private office. One man stood guard
over the bank officials, another watched
the front entrance while the third helped himself to $17,000 of the bank's
funds, which was all there was in sight.
The robbers then boldly walked out
and mingled with the crowds on the
Street. So far the police have been
unable to find any trace of them.
Several people witnessed the robbery
from' the street ln/t did not realize
that a crime was being committed.

The outgoing mail left Friday
morning, Chas. Sterret in charge.
Owing to an unexpected change
in the date of the arrival of the
mail from Vancouver, the mail
carriers had only six days to' reach
Kitimat from Hazelton. Going
by canoe as far as Kitselas they
expect to reach Kitimat on time.

part of next week.
A. R. McDonald of Francis
Lake passed through Hazelton
the first of the week on his way
to the coast where is going as the
representative of the Francis
Lake Settlers Association, to
make certain requests of the provincial government and postoffice
officials in regard to better conditions for the people living near
Francis Lake. It is the desire of
the association to have a mail
route established between Fraser
Lake and Aldermere, a distance
of 140 miles. Fraser Lake is the
end of the present mail route
from the south and Aldermere
is the end of the mail route from
the north, by way of the Skeena
and Hazelton. These places, 140
miles apart by the trail, are nearly 1500 miles apart as the mail
has to go. If the proposed route
be established, the Francis Lake
people v/ould get their mail at
Burns Lake until such a time as
a postoffice may be granted to
the lake and a mail route established. For roads they are asking for improvements to the trails
and sleigh roads already built.

With this issue the Herald publishes the first installement of a
series of letters on early days in
British Columbia, written by our
esteemed townsman, Mr. C. F.
Morison. These letters will appear from time to time and will
furnish interesting and instructive reading for our subscribers.
Two weeks ago it was stated in
this paper that the Church of
England mission at Kiskagas had
been abandoned owing to the decrease in population at that
place. In this connection we are
informed by Rev; J. Field that
the abandonment is only temporary, owing to tne lack of a man
to fill the place, and that as soon
as they have a man the mission
will be reoccupied.
Financial Advice By Parable.
A friend of long standing, who had
heard rumors of coming financial disaster, went to a leading New York,
financier a short, tirrird before the panic
came, and askkl about the situation.
"What is it you wish to know?"
queried the banker.
"Why, I hear stories on every Side of
the depression that is sure to come,
and I have some investments in mind.
I want to know what you think about
putting out money for investment."
"Do you read the Bible?" enquired
the financier.
"Sometimes."
"Well, do you remember about the
man who went out and buried his treasure in the ground?"
"I do."
"Let me tell you, then, that he
wasn't such a fool as he has been taken
to be. "--Philadelphia Saturday Post.

November 18,1908: Ci. G. Harvey, agt.
(By C. F. Morison.)
The writer of this sketch came
to British Columbia in 1862 from
England, via the West Indies and
Panama to San Francisco and
Victoria.
The passage across the Isthmus
of Panama was most interesting
in many ways.    The scenery was
romantic and tropical; there were
grand, strange trees interlaced
with the most beautiful creepers;
on the branches perched numberless birds of bright plumage, but
without song���as I was myself, on
having to pay $40 for my trip of
40 miles by rail and five cents per
pound for baggage.   The train
must have come out of the ' 'Ark,''
as one of Barrett's cayuses could
have beaten it easily in speed.
Panama in those days was a hot
bed of fevers, bad smells, ragged
soldiers, high hotel charges, poor
food,  cut-throats, fine churches
and bad drainage. I was detained
there 14 days, and there was a
revolution each Saturday afternoon.   The voyage was made to
Frisco in the old steamer "St.
Louis," which had been hauled
out of the bone yard for the purpose of accommodating the great
rush then going on  to. British
Columbia on account of the gold
discoveries in Cariboo.   The ship.
which was about Worn out, was
not large, and in it were jammed
passengers to the number of 165C
men, women and children.   The
voyage lasted seventeen days and
I sincerely hope I   shall never
make another one like it.   The
accommodations were wretched,
the food bad and the language
and conduct of the captain simply
disgusting.   We arrived at San
Francisco in May; the weather
was beautiful and I was surprised
to find such a beautiful city on
the Pacific coast in those early
days.   After being delayed here
another   two  weeks  I   took  a
steamer for Victoria, coming up
on the old "Pacific," that vessel
of unhappy memory; many of us
to this day remember her loss
with sorrow.   In the latter end
of May we arrived at Esquimalt,
The weather was most beautiful,
the scenery charming; so altogether I formed on first impression a most favorable   idea of
British Columbia, which  in the
sere and yellow leaf of age has
never changed.    I proceeded to
Victoria in   an ancient express
wagon in which a lot of passengers were packed like herrings in
a barrel, fare $1 each, road very
bad and muddy; then by tram
car, fare 10 cents, road very good.
When I arrived in Victoria there
were only two   or  three brick
buildings there, but there were at
least ten   thousand men under
canvas.   Where  Victoria   West
now is I put up at the Royal Hotel on Wharf street, where the
Occidental now  stands, one of
the greenest pieCes of goods that
ever came from the old country to
the   new���so  awfully  English,
don't you know.
There was a very mixed population Victoria in those days, all
the way from the one-eye-glass
English ducle to the toughest
specimen of humanity from Montana, all under well enforced laws
and police regulations, the dude
restrained in the use of his monocle and the tough in the use of
his six shooter.
I did not remain long in Victoria, as the mainland of British
Columbia was the main object in
those days. I was luckier in my
way than some of the other
' 'green goods;" I had a brother in
the country, who had come out in
'59, and was residing at Westminster as deputy registrar for
British Columbia���deputy to W.
T. Bulkley, the prince of good
fellows. My brother had procured
me a position on the trunk wagon
road to Cariboo, that stupendous
piece of work undertaken by a
colony scarcely out of leading
strings. So I proceeded to New
Westminster on the Hudson's
Bay co.'s steamer "Enterprise,"
capt. Mowatt, some of whose
family still reside in this province,
notablv the jovial and eccentric
Tonv, for some time clerk to R.
Cunningham & Sons, Ltd., Hazelton. crossing the Gulf of Georgia*
after threading our way through
the beautiful islands near Victoria, and enjoying the most
lovely weather of the most lovely
climate in the world we entered
the mouth of the Fraser (no
lights or buoys in those days);
sterning its muddy waters for
about twenty miles, passing Lad-
ner's Landing, then a perfect
solitude, we sighted the "Queen
city," but I am sorry to say that
in those days this queenly town
consisted chiefly of mud and mosquitoes. We tied up at the celebrated I. T. Scott's wharf, where
we were greeted rather irreverently by the assembled populace,
the whole town turning out to
greet a steamer. Two or three
sternwheelers were getting up
steam to proceed to Yale, the
the head of steamboat navigation.
Opposition ran high, which was a
good thing for the public. One
of my fellow passengers, a Liverpool duck, was pounced upon by
the purser of one of the boats, a
bell thrust into his hand, and he
was instructed to ring the bell
and bawl at the top of his voice
the departure of the boat; this he
did to perfection, being a powerful man with strong lungs. The
work lasted half an hour and he
was given $2.50 for his pains.
Tie came to me, his countenance
beaming, and said: "Look, lad!
I only rang the bell of 'arf hour
and got ten bob. 'Oorah ! This
is the country for me!" I only
spent a few days in Westminster
on this occasion, then proceeded
to Yale on the steamer "Colonel
Moody." The water was high
and we had to stop short of our
destination at Union Bar, twelve
miles below Yale.
From here your humble servant, in company with William
Sutton of Yale, an old pioneer;
Joseph Trutch, afterward Sir
Joseph Trutc'h, and two Indians,
proceeded by canoe to Yale, ar**'
riving late in the day. Yale was^
then booming. Pack trains and
miners packed were leaving town
in swarms. I remained here one
night, leaving next morning,���
kind reader bear with me: 1 left
with my pack on, and I cannot at'
this moment write more, as thq1
very thought of that infernal
pack makes my back ache and I
must at once apply liniment.
For a time farewell.   More anon.' Nf

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1?. 1908.
THE BULKLEY BRIDGE SITE.
The holding up of construction
work on the bridge across the
Bulkley river at Telkwa, if continued for any length of time, so
that it may not be completed by
spring, is bound to work a hardship on all the people of the
Bulkley Valley to a certain extent and will bertr most heavily
on the very men to whom the
country is most indebted, the
prospectors.
When this bridge was first
planned the Provincial Government went to the expense of
having a site surveyed and plans
drawn, engaging J. H. Gray, P.
L. S., for the work. Money was
vo'.ed for the job, material
bought and placed on the ground;
but through various causes, of
which this paper does not know
the ins and outs, the construction
was not undertaken last year.
Late last fall the G. T. P. engineer   in   that   district recom-
; mended that the bridge be moved
i up the Bulkley river a few hundred feet that a  better  grade
j crossing might be secured. However, the   Government   ordered
work to be commenced at the site
j chosen by its paid official A fore-
' man was selected and he in turn
picked a gang of men and commenced   preparations   to   start
work, when a telegram from Victoria   stopped   everything.    As
near as can be learned the present delay is the result of a wrangle
over the site.
This bridge question is a matter in which every resident of the
valley rs interested and one which
vitally concerns the prospectors
who own claims in the mountains
at the head of Telkwa river. It
is now high time for every man
interested in seeing a bridge
built to do his part in seeing that
a site is selected in which a majority of the people concur, and
that the rivalry between town-
sites and business interests is no
longer permitted to interfere with
public work.
The ��� Government is ready to
construct this bridge, but it does
not wane it misplaced, to become
a subject for future criticism,
and if the site is to be changed
let the people who are to use it
indicate what place it is to be
built and why.
Winds and Currents Keep It Mooving
Round and Round.
The discoveries of modern
science have revealed monsters
of the deep as terrific as any that
ancient fancy created and have
shown that oceans are not mere
wastes of water, but the homes
of an astounding variety of living
things. More than this, it has
been discovered that the seas
themselves have each a sort of
law of existence which they obey.
The hydrographic office at Washington has for years been trying
to learn something of the characteristics of the Atlantic ocean as
a great moving body by means of
bottles containing papers, which
have been dropped overboard
from vessels in many places to
drift at the mercy of the winds
and waves.
Many of these bottles have
been found and picked up again
either in the open sea or on
shores where they had stranded.
Knowing from its records where
the bottles had been thrown overboard, the bureau has been able
to trace in a general way the
path they must have followed in
order to reach the places where
they were found.
Being partially filled with air
and then securely corked, the
the bottles float on the surface of
the water and go wherever the
winds and the' cun*ents of the sea
carry them. Each boUle contains a record of the place and
date bf its stalling. Some of
those found have floated for
many months on the bosom of
tne Atlantic and traveled thousands of miles.
It has been ascertained that
bottles dropped overboard between the shores of the United
States and England or France
generally travel toward the northeast, following the course of that
great river in the ocean called
the gulf stream. Bottles started
off the coasts of Spain or Africa
travel westward until they arrive
among the- West India islands.
Along the European side of the
ocean the bottle;; take a southerly
course and along the American
side a northerly course.
Thus as a result of winds and
currents the whole Atlantic is
shown to be slowly circulating
around and around, like an enormous pool. This accounts for the
stories thai were current in
Euronf- hundred-; of years ago of
strange objects of human manufacture having floated from the
new to the old world, thus giving
a clew to the existence of undiscovered lands across the sea.
I have several splendid sections
of land for sale, in the Bulkley
Valley, and Francis and Ootsa
Lake country.

RANCHING ON
A LARGE SCALE
Diamond D Ranch in Bulkley Valley
one the Largest in the Province
- jver 1000 Acres Cleared*
Among several ranches owned
by C. Barrett & Co. in the Northern Interior, the Diamond D is
the principal holding, and it is located in Bulkley Valley, near
the confluence of the Morice and
Bulkley rivers, about eighty miles
from Hazelton and twenty from
Telkwa; The original ranch consisted of 320 acres, being the second pre-emption to be taken in
the Bulkley Valley and was located in the year lOOi. Year by
year mo; re land has beeh acquired
Until there are how 3,120 acres,
obtained with South Africah war
scrip arid by purchase fr'tirn the
Provincial Government. One
thousand acres are cleared and
Under cultivation. Hay is the
main crop, of which 500 tons was
tut ih the summer of 1908.
Fourteep tons of hulless barley
and thirty tons of oats sire waiting the thresher from last season's harvest. Also about thirty
tons of potatoes were' grown. In
seven years' they have had no
crop failure and not even what
could be called a poor season. Ih
other years fall sown' wheat has
been grototi with great Success in
a small way but, owitig to a lack
of market until the railroad is
built, nothing has been grown
more thin experimentally, except what could be used at home.
Last slimmer a threshing machine was brought up the Skeena
and is now at Hazelton waiting
for sufficient snow for sleighing,
to be taken to the ranch.
Between the Diamond D and
the Chilcotin ranches 230 head of
horses and mules are being wintered. Most of them are animals
used in the pack trains in the
summer. This does not represent
all their work horses* as in a pinch
nearly three hundred mules and
horses could be mustered for service.
The first imported registered
stallion, "Lively Lad," is kept at
the Diamond D raneh;
There are riow about forty hogs
bn the ranch and the number is to
be largely increased the Coming
Season. The difficulty in bridging
hogs into that country tan be imagined from the fact that the first
three taken to the raneh were
carried from Ha2eltort by Indians
at an expense of $25 each.
There is a full equipment of
wagons, sleighs, mowers, rakes
and other farm machinery, representing over $4,000.
Barrett & Co. are largely interested in the meat trade of the Interior, and to satisfy the demand
for beef until the spring drive is
brought up from the lower country there are now ninety head of
beef cattle on the place. Meat
shops are kept by the firm at both
Hazelton arid Telkwa; It has
been found that better beef is
obtained by holding cattle in the
Bulkley Valley for a year than by
killing sddn after they are
brought from the south. First
class buildings are ori the ranch
and a new ranch house is being
built this winter; Twelve to fourteen men are' employed during
the summer and six or SeVen during the winter.
Charles Barrett; the senior
partner, haS been in British Columbia for many years and has
been in tile Northern Interior for
the past eight years. Before that
he was with the Douglas Lake
ranch for fourteen years, being
foreman the last five years he was
there.
Taken altogether the Diamond
D ranch is quite the largest farming enterprise in the Northern
Interior in both the amount of
acreage under the plow and the
amount of capital invested. The
owners are men of experience
and ability who know what they
are about and the continued enlargement of the place speaks
well for their faith in the future
Of the district. They are putting
the ranch in a position to make
money now and in trie future.
At the prices which now prevail
in the interior the hay Crop alone
for last season was worth about
$20,000 and the total crop was
worth something over $28,000.
Owing to the great demand which
Will bd occasioned by railway
construction prices are not likely
to drop Until after steel is laid.
