HAZELTON,  B. C.,   JULY   26.   1912
TEN PAGES
COAL DEPOSIT IS OPENED
ON THE KITSEUKLA RIVER
William McDonald of Langley Locates Coal on Opposite Side of the
Mountain to Copper River Coal--*-Several Samples
Brought to Hazelton Last Week
Another big coal Held has been discovered and it gives promise of being
an important feeder to New Hazelton,
owing to its location on the Kitseukla
river, near the head waters. Mr.
McDonald, Langley, B. C, returned
from the fields on Thursday night of
last week and reported finding an excellent grade of coking coal. He has
staked a block of ten sections, and on
every section he found coal, samples of
which he brought back to town with
him. This coal can be reached either
by following the Kitseukla river from
its mouth near the Skeena Crossing
bridge, or by going in from Morricetown
and up Trout creek. The Kitseukla route
is the shorter, but the grade is a little
heavier, while on the Trout creek trail
there is a very small grade; and in
either cqse an excellent road or railway
can be built. The Kitseukla coal field
is just the other side of the mountain
from the Copper river coal,  but it is
only quarter the distance from present
transportation, or even less, and the
quality is equal, In fact it is believed
by Mr. McDonald that it is the same
deposit. He had a coupie of men with
him on this trip and they did considerable work sufficient to satisfy them
that it was well worth looking after.
In a short time Mr. McDonald will
return to the property with mor men,
and possibly an engineer. If it is found
to be what he believes it is, this coal
deposit will likely be the first shipper
in northern British Columbia.
Election Next Year
The press of the east is talking a general election in the Dominion it the fall
of next year. Hon. Mr. Borden's Naval Policy will be the big issue. Both
parties have sent out instructions to
their chief organizers to prepare. The
next session is also looked forward to
with great interest and it promises to
be as exciting as the last session.
C.P.R. Steamers
The Canadian Pacific Steamer "Prin-
j cess Royal" leaves Prince Rupert for
! Vancouver at 9 p.m. every Sunday, one
J hour after arrival of G.T.P. train from
j Skeena Crossing, arriving Vancouver

DAWSON BOYS
INVESTING HERE
A Large Number of Klondyke Boys are
Interested in New Hazelton and
are Preparing to Come to
This Camp
A prominent firm of brokers in Dawson has written the Herald for inside
information in regards to New Hazelton and the Hazelton district. He
states that a large number of the Dawson people are greatly interested in
that town and that more of them are
prepared to invest. Not only are they
coming down to prospect but many of
the Dawson business people are coming
to go into business as soon as the
trouble over the location has been
cleared up.
ANOTHER TOWNSITE PROMISED
LOCATED NEAR TWENTY MILE
G. T. B. C. Coal Co. Contemplates Developing Their Coal Lands and
Adjoining Property---Professor Odium Pays Visit to
District��Is Delighted with Country
After making an  inspection   of  the
property of the G. T. B. C. Coal Co.,
at twenty mile the latter part of last
week Prof. Odium, J. F. Luno and W.
G. Moore, returned to town on Monday
and left on Tuesday on the Inlander for
Vancouver.     Prof.   Odium   was   interviewed by the Herald and he was found
to be a big booster for this country, not
only in a mining way, but agriculturally   and   horticulturally.    Prof.   Odium
said that he started for this country in
a dubious frame of mind.    He returns
an enthusiast, and to use his own words:
"This country is an eye opener.    I
had never seen it before, and had
no  idea of what the valleys were
capable.   I can now safely say that,
outside of miniiig, this country has
a  wonderful   future  before  it.    It
gives promise of a great and successful community."
Besides being president of the G. T.
B. C. Coal Co., Prof. Odium is head of
! the mineralogy, agricultural and horticultural departments of the Vancouver
exhibition, and he is therefore very
much interested in this northern part
of the province, and is hoping to see a
large exhibit of all the resources of this
district sent down to the fair.
In referring to his own coal property,
the professor said that he was dubious
when he started out, as he does not ac-
j cept  the   reports of mining engineers
I without a certain amount of salt.    But
since he had seen the ground and made
an inspection of it he is satisfied that
they have a fine proposition.   There is
j one ledge from five and a half feet to
j six feet that they have tunnelled into
I for a distance of 136 feet and the coal
i has improved wonderfully.    On another
j seam they have another slanting tunnel
; and the coal is three feet wide.    These
i are the only seams they have done any
particular work on, but there are sev-

HIGH LEVEL BRIDGE ACROSS BULKLEY RIVER IS ASSURED
BIG DOINGS FOR
NEXT SEASON
H. M. Beach. Ottawa. Writes that His
Company Will Wait One Year
and Then Go Strong
Last week the Herald received a letter from H. M. Beach, Ottawa, stating
that he would not be in the district this
season owing to the great transportation difficulties in the early part of the
season. He states that his company
had been informed from Vancouver that
it would be impossible to get in this
year, so they decided to wait until next
season, when they will make an earl3'
start and get to their coal property on
Slate creek at an early date. It is the
intention of his company to expend a
very large sum of money on development next season. Mr. Beach expresses
great interest in this district, and in
the Herald, which furnishes hirn with
all the information of the district. He
also sends kind regards to his many
friends here.
His Honor Judge Young held county
court here this week and cleared up
the docket. Except a couple of civil
cases, there was nothing doing*. On
Wednesday the judge visited Silver
Standard with Angus Stewart.
Preparing for Shipment
The Harris Mines have now 150 sacks
of ore ready for shipment and from an
average assay taken frcm each sack
the returns are better than $84.00, including all smelter discounts. This ore
was all taken from the upper vein on
which the development work has been
going on for the past several months.
The lesults are very gratifying to the
management. By the time the railway
is ready to handle the ore, the boys will
have over 2000 sacks ready, and then
they will be able to make regular shipments.    Another feature of this aver
age assay is that it is very close to the
assays taken from time to time from
all parts of the property, and the
amount of lead is also about the same,
showing that the ore all over the mine
is running pretty even.
The steamer Hazelton, which is so
well known in this port,  has been pur-
, chased by the Prince Rupert Rowing
Club and is being converted into a club
house.    The old Hazelton will be locat-
! ed permanently at a point between the
j government  wharf  and  the  Standard
I Fish Co.
Roy McDonald Home
Roy McDonald got back from the
Ground Hog on Thursday night looking
the picture of health. This is Roy's
second trip and he is earning the reputation of being some mushei*. While
in the coal country he staked a large
block of territory, which is in the best
coal district, and on which there are
some very fine deposits. He is very
enthusiastic over the prospects of the
district. There are more people up
there this year than ever, although Roy
says it is still possible to travel several
days without meeting anyone.
WITH HUDSON BAY
MOUNTAIN BOYS
Great Activity Among the Prospectors
and Some Big Strikes Are
Being Made
ENGLISH FIRM OF BRIDGE BUILDERS WILL
CONSTRUCT THE BRIDGE AT HAGUELGATE
ONE OF GREATEST
MINING DISTRICTS
On the Continent is C. B. Clark's estimate of the Hazelton District-
Travelled Great Distance
TO INVITE DUKE
OF CONNAUGHT
To Visit Hazelton this Fall   Board of
Trade to be Hosts   Secretary
Presents Report
It has been decided by the Hazelton
Board of Trade to extend an invitation
to His Royal Highness the Duke of
Connaught and party to visit Hazelton
while on their western tour. The party
expect to arrive in Prince Rupert about
Sept. 23, and in that case they will be
here the 24th or 25th. After the Board
decided to extend the invitation, the
actual work was left to the Council.
Just what the form of the entertainment will be is to be decided after word
is received from the A.D.C.
The secretary of the board also made
a report of the work of the council during the past quarter, and it is gratifying to learn that considerable success
had attended their efforts in obtaining
better postal service, telegraph service,
and a bright prospect for telegraph and
postal service to the Ground Hog mountain. The freight rates had also been
fixed up.
For the past five or six weeks C. B.
Clark has been "doing" the district.
Not as the tourist does���with a guide
book nor yet like the three shell fakir.
He has been "doing" it like a practical
mining man looking for a property to
develop or to get in shape for a big
company to develop. Since his arrival
in the early spring he has travelled over
several hundred miles of territory and
he has seen a great many properties,
several of which he has under consideration. He has also seen enough to warrant all that he expected from the
country some four years ago when he
first came in. At that time he was
satisfied that he had hit a great mineral
country, one of the greatest on the
American continent, but he knew that
he was too soon and too far ahead of
transportation. The railway is nearly
ready to handle shipments and it is the
right time for a mining property to be
taken up and put in shape. He expects
to remain in the country and he also
expects to have something definite
framed up in a short time.
Since returning from the Telkwa and
Hudson Bay mountain districts, he has
visited Rocher de Boule. This week he
was out to Nine Mile mountain, and he
will also take in several other sections
in the next few days. So far as Silver
Standard and Rocher de Boule are concerned, he said they were already
mines and did not need any boosting
whatever, and that no knocking would

New Hazelton Given Direct Communication with Mines and

AND LOSE SECOND
Hazelton Breaks Even at Telkwa Base-
BRIDGE TO BE 450 FEET LONG       Ball Tournament-Moore Won
  Foot Race
Water Power at Haguelgate to be Developed for the Town, the Mines
and Manufacturers
There is no longer any doubt about
the construction of the high level bridge
across the Bulkley river at Haguelgate
to connect the mines on this side of the
river and the Kispiox Valley farms
with New Hazelton.* The Herald has
received authoritive information that
the bridge will be constructed immediately and that the announcment of the
awarding of the contract will be made
the first of the week.
Geo. Craddock & Co., of Wakefield,
Eng., contractors, have agreed to accept the contract and to proceed with
the work at once. This firm makes a
specialty of suspension bridges, and
they have agencies in all parts of the
world, and have built bridges in almost
every country in the world. All that
remains to be done is some minor de-1
tails and the office work in connection
with it.
The bridge will be 450 feet long and ;
the regulation width for wagon traffic. [
It will probably be the highest wagon
bridge in the province being 240 feet
above high water. The townsite owners
who are standing all the cost of construction will also build a mile-and-a-
half of wagon road and approaches to
the bridge which will connect New
Hazelton, on an almost level grade with
(Continued on Page 6)
The Tigers, thanks to the air-tight
article dished up by the roly-poly Mr.
Owens, were enabled to give Telkwa an
awful showing up in the first game at
the Bulkley metropolis last Saturday.
He had the potato-pickers moving in
regular order from the bench to bat,
and after sticking around the home
station a comparatively short time they
would meander sadly toward the water
bucket. His support in the first game
was silk-lined, and the lone score came
on a bum peg to first, a stolen base and
then a measly little Texas leaguer
popped olf a surprised bat.   Score 8 to 1.
ln the second game Mills essayed the
llyinging job, but somebody had been
tampering with the sights and he passed
five before he was given the retreat
signal. "Old Reliable" Owens was put
into the breach again with three riders
on the cushions and nobody out. Before
the dust settled three runs were counted, and that was enough to win as the
final score ended 6 to 5. Telkwa
played a good game in the field.
The money was all bet on the first
game and the local sports hit them for
another chunk when Moore won the
mile-and-a-half foot race from Lemke.
Telkwa looks like a permanent camp
the way they bet their money.
The visitors were entertained at a
very pretty little dance on Saturday
evening, followed by a big banquet at
the New Telkwa Hotel on Sunday night.
Speeches and song were almost drowned in the fusilade of musical corks.
There is great activity among the
prospectors in the vicinity of Hudson
Bay Mountain, Telkwa Mountain and
the surrounding hills. There are more
prospectors in that country this year
than ever before and every little while
something new is being reported. L. L.
DeVoin made a trip as tar as the Morrice river territory and just returned on
Friday night last. He inspected the
discovery made by Ridsdale and Gore
some weeks ago, and he says that they
have an immense showing of mineral
and requires a great deal of work to
open it up so that it can be decided the
best way to develop it. At present it
is a very promising looking property.
Mr. DeVoin also reports that the Prince
Rup_rt Coal Fields, Ltd., have twenty
men, under E. J. Beaudette, working
drills on the property. Mr. Beaudette
is the engineer for the G.T.P. The
whole semi-circle of mountains from
Hudson Bay mountain to the Telkwa
Mountain is well sprinkled with prospectors, and there are at least fifty
men on Hudson Bay mountain alone.
I. W. W. STRIKE
IS A FAILURE
Men Not in Sympathy and Many Want
to Resume Work   Will be All
Over in a Few Days
Some two thousand men employed on
the railway construction are out of
work, ami have been since last Friday
and Saturday. The l.W. W. organizers
and agitators threatened a strike last
week, and as soon as the men became
aware of it they quit work and came in
for their time. The great majority are
opposed to the strike and stopped work
in order to avoid trouble. The work all
along the line from New Hazelton to
Aldermere is at a standstill and it will
remain that way until the men decide
to return to their jobs, and that will be,
it is expected, in a few days. Already
some thirty men have applied to return
to work at Sealey Gulch, but there was
nothing for them to do, as the work
cannot be carried on with a part of the
force. Except that two thousand men
lose their wages for a week or two, and
that the construction of the road is delayed that long, the so-called strike will
have no effect. THE OMINECA HERALD. JULY 26, 1912

FRIDAY.  JULY 26.  1912
Sir Richard's Visit
Once every four years Sir Richard
McBride pays a visit to the Skeena
district. His third visit has been made
and on that occasion he was met by the
largest audience that ever greeted anyone in the town's history. The people
turned out en masse to hear the premier. Whether Sir Richard knows any
more about this district than on the occasion of his first visit no one would be
able to say from his address last week.
The premier spoke in generalities and
complimented the captain on the boat
and the railway officials who supplied
him with a special train. He also admitted that he admired pioneers. Except that assistance would be given the
agricultural interests, and that probably
more roads and better roads would be
built after the railway was through,
there was practically no encouragement
given the pioneers of the wealthiest
section of British Columbia, and the
district that pays the greatest amount
of taxes per population.
Not a word was said about the mining
interests, and everyone knows that
these are the backbone of the district;
not a word about a wagon road or railway to Ground Hog from H?zelton ; not
a woid about a permanent road of any
kind to any place.
The people are as much at sea today
as they were before Sir Richard arrived.
There is nothing permanent, and no
prospects of anything permanent.
Whether this is due to a lack of time
on the part of the premier, or whether
he felt that he was not called upon to
take the public into his confidence is
hard to say. It may be that he was
not sufficiently informed as to the necessities of the district. In that case,
those who had charge of his reception
are seriously at fault. Sir Richard said
he was here to get acquainted with the
country and the people, and to find out
what was needed. Has he been allowed
to go away believing that everything
has been provided and all people are
satisfied ? True, he was handed a sheet
of paper with a few humble requests
on it, but that is not the way Prince
Rupert or Stewart secured what they
wanted. When Stewart wanted a trail
to Ground Hog to rob this district out
of that business, they did not meekly
ask the premier for it. They went
after it, and got it. Prince Rupert
went after what they wanted, and they
are getting them. Until Hazelton goes
after what it needs in a determined and
business-like manner there will be nothing doing. Sir Richard cannot be
blamed. He has not been told what
was wanted. He was not even permitted to see a display of the district's
resources which were especially arranged for him. What chance has he to
learn how best to help develop the district? To use the premier's own words.
"the people must do their part." If
the people do not ask, and insist, they
will  not receive.

eral others visible. On the opposite
side of the river Prof. Odium says they
have coal which appears to be better
than that. The geographical stratifications are the cause of him making
that statement. Work will be continued on the property, and in due course
the property will either be sold to a reliable company or they will develop it
themselves. They are satisfied that
they have a good quality of coal, and
that they have the quantity.
One  of   the   things   these men were
sent out for was to decide, or at least
there is in Boulder creek, which flows
through the property, a water supply
almost unlimited for waterworks and
electric energy, and the drainage is of
the best. In these respects this town
will surpass almost all others in the
district. Then the development of the
coal lands will be a big factor in the
town's favor.
Prof. Odium stated that it was likely
their report would be acted upon at a
very early date, and that preparations
would be started at once to carry on
this development.

HAZELTON MINING DOPE
There are a number of prospectors in
the Babine district this year and there
is no doubt but that there will be some
good properties located.
When H. J. McDonald came in from
Silver Island last week be brought
samples of the ore with him, and a
couple of these can be seen in the
Omineca Herald office.
pressed with what he has been able to
learn.
John McPherson, formerly with the
Hudson's Bay Co. at the Babine post is
now working his claims which are located just behind Newman's. He has
seven inches of high grade galena and
feels much encouraged for the amount
of work he has done.
C.   S.   Anderson   has   arrived   at   his
property on  Fifteen  Mile   Creek,  just
| three miles back frcm Babine Lake and
has started work  again.     He   reports
j having found another vein on  the  Sil-
j ver   Vox   group   and   he   will do some
work on it this summer.   Mr. Anderson
has also staked  several more claims in
the near vicinity  and  he  reports them
as very promising looking prospects.
Frank Martin and Barney Halleron
spent several days on the silver property on Hudson Bay mountain last week.
They say everything is looking line out
there. R. G. Steele is making splendid
headway with the 400 foot tunnel he is
having driven on his property. They
are in about 100 feet now and the rock
is getting softer and easier to drive.
The trail built by Mr. Steele in the
spring from Chicken Lake to his mine
is one of the best in the country.
M. H. Sullivan, Youngstown, Ohio,
was in town several days last week and
was a guest of Theodore Jennings. Mr.
Sullivan is a mining man and came in to
look over the country. He will return
again in a few weeks and remain for
some time.    He  is   very favorably im-
Jas. Riley brought in some samples
from the new strike made in Sunset
Basin by Billy Henry and Martin Sanders about a month ago. The boys
have about a four foot vein of silver
and copper ore that looks exceptionally
promising. The property is only about
fifteen miles above Telkwa. Rosenthal,
Harris & Devoin also have some samples
on exhibition from the same property.
H. J. McDonald, of the Silver Island
property was in town last week securing supplies for his camp for the summer and fall. He reports everything
in the vicinity in excellent shape. The
1 work they did on Silver Island has improved the property very materially.
They have a vein two feet wide showing high values in grey copper and native silver. The vein is in the centre of
about twelve feet of mineralized rock
j and this may turn out exceptionally
��� good as more work is done. As soon as
as he gets back he will start work on it
again and will put some men to work as
well. Last spring he had five men on
the property for several weeks.
it very difficult to get assays from
Rocher de Boule under 18 or 20 per
cent, copper.    And in spite of his opin
ions the property has been developed
and it is proving to be better than the
most optimistic ever claimed it to be.

Chas. Newman has a fine copper
property about 30 miles up the lake
on the lake shore. He has accomplished
a large amount of work and the property is showing up well. There are several big veins exposed and some of them
will measure fifteen feet wide. It is
one of the most promising in the Babine
district for a big proposition. The ore
also carries silver and gold values. In
fact there are galena showings on the
property.
C. H. Munro has recorded two more
claims which he staked a short time ago
at the head of Driftwood Creek, in the
Babit.e District. From his claim he can
see the lake, and there is a good trail
already into the property with a fine
grade for a wagon road. The stuff is
all copper and it looks very fine. Two
assays gave returns of $112.02 and
$37.80. It carries small values in gold
and silver, but not to amount to anything.
ln his annual report W. Fleet Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist, has something to say in connection with Rocher
de Boule, that he says himself is guesswork or "to judge by the eye," that
would have been a great deal better for
his own reputation had he left unsaid.
When he visited the Rocher de Boule
he was given every opportunity to take
samples, to see assays and to get any
information he desired. Evidently he
desired no information. He took no
assays, he took no samples and found
out practically nothing. Yet he says :
". . . . at this point heavily mineralized with chalcopyrite, to an
extent, to judge by the eye, to
average across the vein six to
eight per cent copper. " W. Fleet
Robertson's estimate of Rocher de
Boule cuts no ice, and if his estimate
of other properties is no closer to the
truth, or facts, it would be better if he
never left his office in Victoria. The
fact of the matter is that W. Fleet
Robertson,   or   anyone else, woultl find

The High Cost of
Living is the Cost
of Expensive Living
Much has been said during the
past year on the high cost of living.
Governments have investigated and
experts have reported on the subject
but about the best reason given for
the prevailing conditions is summed
up in the conclusions arrived at by
an eastern paper, after wrestling
with statistics and gathering data
in the attempt to solve the question,
which says: "The high cost of living
is nothing more than the cost of living high." They claimed that less
attention is being given the purchasing end of the household.
There is no doubt about such a
condition existing. Every day in
Hazelton people are shouting about
this condition, but do nothing in the
way of stopping it.
Things ARE expensive here-���
and will only be bettered when the
first through train gets in. But the
merchants are all dealing fairly with
you; and your salary is, no doubt, in
keeping with conditions. Therefore,
the cost of living is not so high, but
rather there is some fault at home.
This much-talked-of increase is
to no small extent a leak in the system on which your home is run.
Expensive living is the cost of living expensively, and
living expensively is attributable to buying at random.
To-day's Herald will help stop that leak. Everywhere
in today's ads. the leading merchants of Hazelton are
offering you splendid opportunities to save money.

One of the most helpful little
"kinks" the writer noted when
on a visit to a nearby poultry
plant, was something to keep the
water pans from becoming sour
in a few days. This was nothing
more nor less than the use of an
ordinary milk bottle swab���that
is, every time fresh water was to
be put into the water pans, the
old water was thrown out and a
little fresh put in and then the
swab was brought into play. By
swabbing around in the pan, all
the old "scum" and dirt was
loosened from the sides and the
bottom of the pan, and the fresh
water was not contaminated by
the stale water that might adhere
to the sides of the pans. By the
use of this swab, the water pans
do not have to be boiled out more
than once a week, and may even
go two weeks without becoming
sour, ill-smelling and unhealthy
for the hens. It is impossible to
clean the pans by rubbing them
with the hands, and in winter
this is also decidedly unpleasant.
These swabs can be purchased at
any handware store for five cents
and their cheapness permits a
number being purchased, and cne
hung on each coop, or near the
water pans, or wherever convenient. While the writer is not
trying to boom the hardware business by this suggestion, "a trial
will convince the most skeptical."
Occasionally one sees a rooster
with his neck almost bare of
feathers and looking as if he was
being prepared for the roasting
pan by being picked alive. If one
observes the hens that are with
this bird, he will find that a hen
will come up the rooster, cock
her head on one side, as though
critically observing how peculiar
her lord and master looks with
his neck shaved, and will then
immediately try to improve upon
the job by pecking at the remaining feathers. Sometimes a hen
will peck at one place until blood
is drawn, and then there will be
trouble indeed, if the rooster is
not removed from the pen until
the sore is healed. The trouble
is feather pulling-, of course, and
it is a mean trait to have appear
in one's flock. The fault lies not
so much with the hen, however,
as with the attendant. The cause
is a lack of animal food, or meat
food, and had this been supplied
in sufficient quantity, undoubtedly the habit would not have been
formed. When there is a lack of
animal food the hens begin feather eating to get the 'juice" at
the bottom of the quill of the
feather, to supply this deficiency,
and if blood is drawn, so much
the better to the liking of the
hen.
To stop this evil, the cause
must first be removed. This can
be done at once by supplying
commercial beef scraps and giving the hens all they will eat of
it. In very severe cases, it may
be necessary to use some further
treatment, and the writer has
found the best method in overcoming the effects of the trouble,
after the cause has been removed,
is to apply carbolated vaseline
generously to the bare spots of
the rooster. If this does not stop
the trouble, a little kerosene oil
can be added to the vaseline when
it is applied, and by putting on
this mixture, the hens, after getting one or two tastes of this
nauseating dose, shake their
heads in disgust, and the habit
will soon disappear. Incidentally,
the vaseline will help the raw
state of the rooster's neck, and if
the kerosene is added, it will do
no harm in the healing process.
It frequently seems that little
chicks take particular delight,
when scratching in the litter, in
seeing just how much of it they
can make fly into the water pans
or hoppers. While the water
founts can easily be cleaned, it is
not so easy a matter to get the
dirt of litter out of the hoppers,
etc., without wasting considerable of the contents. To prevent
the water from becoming soiled
in this way and to keep the hoppers clear and the contents always accessible, one should raise
them above the floor about six or
eight inches. Little platforms
can be built upon which the
chicks can stand when eating
from the hoppers or when drinking. Such a method also has the
great advantage of giving the
chicks so much more floor space,
and active chicks need room in
which to run around. The founts
and hoppers in the coops of the
grown stock can also be arranged
in this manner.
To put dirt or sand on the
dropping boards saves a great
deal of work, in that the droppings do not stick to the boards,
but the fine siftings of ashes
make the cleaning of the boards
even easier. When the manure
is to be used on the garden, the
ashes will also benefit the plants,
and thus they are put to a double
| use. The fowls take a great deal
[of pleasure in picking over the
ashes, and it is surprising how
much of the larger pieces they
will consume with avidity. There
are some elements that are to be
found in larger quantities in ashes
than in oyster shells, of which
the hens are particularly fond,
and they will consume ashes in
preference to oyster shells every
time they have the opportunity.
When building dropping boards
care should be taken not to make
them too tight. The moisture of
the droppings will make the
boards swell, and if the boards
are so tight there is no play at
' all, they will buckle up and not
only present a very poor appearance but will be very hard to
clean thoroughly.
POST OFFICE AT
PRINCE RUPERT
Handsome Quarters in the Coast Town
means Dispatch and Thoroughness of Handling; Mail
The new post office at Prince Rupert
is now being put into excellent  shape
for the handling of the ever increasing
mail matter that must be handled there.
Postmaster Mcintosh   has nearly completed the arrangements of the fixtures
and the staff is getting accustomed to
I its  new  surroundings.    In   future the
mail service for all points from Prince
Rupert  will  be  immensely  improved.
So far as Hazelton is concerned all mail
from the east or south, or west that
goes via Vancouver will  be  sorted  in
' Vancouver and sent on in a solid bag
, for Hazelton.      Thus it will  not  be
touched in the Rupert office, but will be
taken direct from the boat to the train
so that no time will be lost.    Bulkley
\ Valley mail will be handled in the same
! way  and   this will also greatly reduce
the amount of work to be done in the

For a number of years, there has
been a constant flow of valuable information on agriculture, in its several
lines, going out from the Department
of Agriculture at Ottawa. In the forms
of annual reports, special reports, bulletins and circulars, hundreds of publi-
been issued, considerably
exceeding a million copies a year, and
the stream is constantly enlarging.
Until recently each of the several main
Branches of the Department sent out
their own publications. An advance
step has lately been taken in the organization of the Publications Branch which
is charged with the sending out from
one office of all the publications as issued. As a guitle to the agricultural
public as to what publications may be
procured, a full list indicating the subjects treated, has been issued in pamphlet form to be sent out to those who
apply for it.
A copy of this catalogue may be seen
at the Omineca Herald Office.

During the summer of 1913 the 12th
session of the International Geological
Congress will be held in Canada. This
is, from a mining and geological standpoint, one of the most important conferences, and Canada is particularly
fortunate in securing it. From eight
hundred to a thousand geologists, mining engineers and representatives of
the different governments will be in attendance, and these visitors will be afforded every opportunity to gather
information of, and to study Canada.
In addition to the Congress, which will
last for several days, many side trips
have already been arranged. One of
these, and the one which is of most importance to this district, is for one-
party to leave Prince Rupert and travel
by rail to New Hazelton. Nine days
have been set apart for this outing,
and by the time the visitors arrive
] there will be quite a number of excel-
i lent operating mines to be inspected,
as well as the country at large.
These excursions will take place during August and September, and will
extend from Cape Breton anil Halifax
on the Atlantic to Prince Rupert and
Victoria on the Pacific, and from Niagara Falls in the south to Dawson in
the north.

THE CONTROL OF  INSECT PESTS
IN CANADA
The Division of Entomology of
the Experimental Farms Branch
of the Dominion Department of
Agriculture, Ottawa, has recently issued a bulletin by Dr. C.
Gordon Hewitt, Dominion Entomologist, on "The Control of Insect
Pests in Canada."
An account is given of the history of the war against insect
pests in Canada and of the manner in which insect pests have
invaded the country as if has
been gradually opened up and
cultivated. The manner in which
the Dominion and Provincial governments are endeavouring by
legislation and other means to
prevent the introduction of insect pests into Canada and the
increase and spread of those pests

ahout July lst.
already here is described. An
interesting summary of the various lines of work undertaken and
carried on by the Division of
Entomology at Ottawa is given
and the general public will no
doubt be surprised at the many
problems which come within the
scope of the Entomologists who
are called upon to deal with insects in their relations to all the
varied activities of man; insects
affecting farm crops, fruit growing, forest and shade trees; insects attacking man's posessions
and infesting houses, attacking
domestic animals and finally
affecting the health of man. All
insects, however, are not injurious and the work of the Ento-
mologist includes bees and beekeeping and the study of parisitic
and other enemies which may be
of assistance in obtaining control
of insect pects.

TO THE PUBLIC
THE FINAL decision of the Railway Commissioners, confirming the
location to the railroad station at NEW HAZELTON, puts the final
stamp of approval on New Hazelton as the only townsite in the district. The insane attempts by some parties, who, to further, what
they considered, their own interests, to have the town removed from
its natural location as decided by the late Judge Mabee, already resulting in business stagnation and the loss of thousands of dollars to
the business men of Hazelton, besides setting the development of the
district back by many months, have now met with  complete failure.

The Commissioners also state that if the G.T.P. propose to put a station
there, they would have to conform to the standard laid down by themselves.    Prominent engineers give it as their opinion that such is impossible.
The owners of New Hazelton are prepared to act in a liberal manner
toward the old town business men, who feel that the coming of the railway necessitates the removal of their business to the new town.   The
railway will easily reach New Hazelton by September lst.

do them any harm. Silver Standard,
he said, was the finest silver leatl property he hail ever seen, anil he was prepared to say that very few others had
seen as good.
Mr. Clarke looked I'or Nine Mile
mountain to turn out something big.
After looking at Leatl King, he was
very much struck on the big vein which
was uncovered last season, but on which
no work has yet been done. It is a
very promising showing. He was also
much impressed with the Harris Mines
and looked for a cracking good body of
ore to be opened up there. All the
work that has been done on it so far
had been well done, and the property
was looking very well.
Mr. Clark is one of the best practical
miners and his presence in the country
will encourage many other mining men
to come in. On some of his trips around
he has been accompanied by P. J. Jennings, who has made several important
deals and who is preparing to make
several more in the near future.
POAI, mining rights ot the Dominion,
in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the
North-west Territories and in a portion
of the Province of British Columbia,
may be leased for a term of twenty-one
years at an annual rental of $1 an acre.
Not more fhan 2,560acies will be leased
to one applicant.
Application for a lease must be made
by the applicant in person to the
Agent or Sub-Agent of the district in
which the rights applied for art.' situated.
In surveyed territory the land must
be described by sections, or legal subdivisions of sections, and in unsurveyed
territory the tract applied for shall be
staked out by the applicant himself.
Each application must be accompanied
i by a fee of $5 which will be refunded if
the rights applied for are not available,
but not otherwise. A royalty shall be
paid on the merchantable output of the
mine at the rate of five cents per ton.
The person operating the mine shall
furnish the Agent with sworn returns
accounting for the full quantity of merchantable coal mined and pay the royalty thereon. If the coal mining rights
are not being operated, such returns
should be furnished at least once a
year.
The lease will include the coal mining
rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available
surface rights may be considered necessary for the working of the mine at the
rate of $10.00 an acre.
For full information application should
be made to the Secretary of the Department of the Interior, Ottawa, or to
any Agent or Sub-Agent of Dominion
Lands.

Deputy Minister of the Interior.
