A BIG STRIKE
AT KAMLOOPS
I.W.W. Behind the Move to Tie Up all
Railway Construction in the
Province
(Special to the Herald)
���������[Vancouver, B.C., April 4th.���
Four thousand employee of the
Canadian Northern Pacific have
gone on strike, urged on by the
I. W.W., and are asking for $3.50
a day and nine hours. They
formerly were paid $2.80 per day
of ten hours. There has as yet
been no formal demand made upon the employers, and there has
been no conference held. In fact,
ninety per cent of the men, who
are foreigners, do not know what
they are striking for. Colin
Campbell, chief of the provincial
police, has left Victoria for Kamloops, the seat of the trouble, to
prevent any disturbances. The
men remaining in the district
have established camps under the
socialistic doctrine of all share
alike. A large number of the
men have come to Vancouver and
passed on to Seattle.
Reliable report from Edmonton
this morning states that I.W.W.
delegates left here during the
night for British Columbia to
carry dissatisfaction into the
camps of the G.T.P. The plan is
to tie up all railway construction
in British Columbia.
By the Air Line
(Special to the Herald)
Dawson, April 3���The local
board of Trade is considering the
proposal for an aviator to fly from
Vancouver to Dawson this summer to advertise the north as the
Grand Scenic Route. Aviator
Farnum is already in communication with the board.

Hundred-and-Seventy Drown
(Special to the Herald)
Vancouver, April 5. ��� Fifty
passengers and a crew of eighty
were drowned in the wreck of
the British steamer Koombana off
the west coast of Australia in a
typhoon the last week in March.
The same typhoon wrecked sixty-
seven pearl fishing boats and
drowned forty fishermen.
Will Start a Saw Mill
Chas. Gesecus, o f Francis
Lake, is in town this week, having just returned from Vancouver where he purchased the
necessary outfit for a saw mill
which will be established at
North Francis Lake in the very
near future. The new firm will
be known as John Neston &
Co. The timber in the vicinity
of North Francis Lake is of
the best and there is lots of it.
The mill will be a great advantage to the farmers who are
trying to clear up their land and
get started.
Liberals Will Organize
Special to the Herald
Vancouver, April 3.���For the
purpose of maintaining the Liberal organization started just as
the date of the election was announced, another meeting is being called by the President, H.
H. Brewster, for April 11th, in
Vancouver. The last campaign
has aroused the fighting spirit of
the party and it is intended to
inaugerate an aggressive campaign looking towards the next
election.
Greet Britain Sets Aside Six and a Half
Million   Canada Called Upon
to Help
(Special to the Herald)
London, April 3.��� Britain rings
this morning with the announcement made by Lloyd George that
the British cabinet had decided to
devote the entire surplus of six
and a half million pounds to the
creation of a naval emergency
fund. This is Britain's dramatic
reply to Germany's naval program.
The fact that the Chancellor of
the Exchecquer makes the announcement in the face of domestic social reform needs is regarded as overwhelming evidence of
I the gravity of the present situa-
j tion.
The Standard calls on Canada
| to   achive   her   destiny   as   the
majestic central arch of the Em-
| pire by assisting to carry the burden of imperial defence.
The meeting of the Hazelton
Hospital Aid Association arranged to be held at the home of Mrs.
Wrinch on Thursday, April 11th
has been postponed until Thursday, April 25th.
Beell Fails to Throw Local Wrestler at
Everett In Handicap Match
Everett, Wash.-"Fred" Beell
was unable to throw Chester
Mclntyre, of Vancouver, in a
handicap match, wherein Beell
was to put him on the mat twice
within an hour, The Vancouver
wrestler was favorable with the
audience throughout the match
and those who fancied he would
place himself on the defensive
were mistaken for Mclntyre
mixed at every opportunity.
Although Beel tried all holds
he is master of, they proved ineffective for Mclntyre managed
to break them in a manner
so clever and skillful that the
audience applauded several times
Only once was Mclntyre really
in danger and that was in the
final five minutes, when Beell
secured a head-lock, but at the
critical moment Mclntyre broke
away finishing the match in as
good condition as his adversary.
Other numbers on the card arranged by Charles Manning were
Japanese wrestling and swordsmanship.
River is Breaking Up  Fast   Warm
Rains in the North in a Few
Days   Two Boats on
the Ran
Pool Tournament
The pool tournment at the
Galena Club last week was quite
a success. The winners were :
first, W. Brewer; second, Edgar
Ford; third, Fred Brewer; fourth,
Edgar Harris. Harris and Sharpe
were tie for fourth place and
Harris won the play off. A
notable feature about the playoff was the two breaks that
were made, the biggest throughout the tournament���Harris, 20;
Sharp, 17.
C. G. Harvey played a remarkable game all through and
scored the greatest number of
points. He was handicapped 39
points, and had he not lost
his nerve the last period or two
he would probably have won
out. He cleared the board three
times, and was the only player
who did.
ON THE WAY TO NEW HAZELTON
No Danger of Land or Snow Slides Here
It is now only the matter of a
month until the first boat will
pull into the Hazelton docks. The
Skeena River has started to break
up and it is going fast. In a few
days more the warm April rains
will start in the north and any
day after that the boats can get
under way from Prince Rupert.
Boats have come in here as early
as April 25, and as late as May
15th, but they usually arrive first
between May lst and 10th.
The Hudson Bay Co. \vill have
the Port Simpson on the Skeena
for the first few trips until the
water gets too high in the Canyon, and then she will go to the
Stikine. The first couple of trips
up she will be loaded with goods
for the Hudson's Bay Co. and it
is doubtful if she will be able to
carry any other freight. Besides
the local store there will be supplies for Babine, Fraser Lake,
and several other posts where
supplies are badly needed, and it
is necessary to get the pack trains
started early.
The steamer Inlander is now
being fitted out so as to be ready
to start on her first trip as soon
as the water starts to raise. It
will be a race between the Inlander and the Port Simpson this
year for the honors of first arriving at Hazelton.
The Foley, Welch & Stewart
fleet has dwindled down to one
lone steamer and she will likely
run only to Sealey. Just how
long she will be on the river depends upon the progress of th"
steel, and of the bridge. But at
the most it is not expected that
she will run after the middle of
June.
Thos. Hankin Jleft on Sunday
with six toboggan loads of supplies for the Turnagain country
where he will spend the next few
months, presumably looking for
placer diggings. He had twenty
dogs in his string.
BUILD SHIPS IN
NORTH VANCOUVER
Contract Awarded for a Twenty-Five
Million Dollar Dry Dock -Work
Has Been Started
(Special to the Herald)
North Vancouver, April 3.
The contracts have been awarded
for the construction of a twenty-
five million dollar dry dock here
for the William Hamilton Shipbuilding Co., of Glasgow. Clearing of ten acres of land has been
started, and when the work gets
well under way some three thousand men will be employed.
French and British capital is interested, and when the docks are
ready merchant ships will be
built.
If you want to arrange for a
vvater supply for this summer
look up the adv. on page three of
this issue.
On The Railway
General Freight Agent C. E.
Dewey, of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, returned to Vancouver last week on the steamer
Princess Beatrice from an inspection trip over the western division of the line between Prince
Rupert and the end of the line in
actual use. He was very enthusiastic over the great progress
shown in the construction and
confirmed the report that the
steel had been laid to the Skeena
crossing, about twelve miles
from Hazelton.
"The most wonderful development is taking place along
the Skeena," he said. "New
towns are growing rapidly and
the fishing industry along the
river show signs of a big increase. The country along the
section where the railroad is in
operation is quickly being transformed and Prince Rupert is
humming with activity.
(Van. Sun.)
FIFTY THOUSAND
STRIKERS WORK
King, Queen and Queen Mother Contribute $5,000 Each to the
Relief Fund
The latest reports from the
Ground Hog trail are to the effect
that there has been considerable
rain in the north for several days
and that the last parties who
went up had considerable difficulty getting across some place.
Farther north the trail is reported fairly good yet, although it is
doubtful if there will he any
more parties start for the coal
fields until the pack trains can be
used.
(Special to the Herald)
London. April 3.-In spite of
the fact that the miners voted to,
remain on strike, 50,000 of them J
have resumed work, and it is expected that the rest, or at least
enough will follow them, to break
up the strike. King George,
Queen Mary and the Queen
Mother have each contributed
$5,000 to the relief fund.
The Rifle Association Smoker
last night was a great success.
There was a large crowd in the
hall and the program was one of
the best that has yet been produced in the old town. There
was boxing, wrestling and other
athletic stunts.
Several of the men from Silver Standard mine were in town
Wednesday and left for the mine
again on Thursday. They report
progress there very favorable.
The first round of holes was
fired before they came down.
Trout fishing is all the rage
now and the boys are making
some fine catches. All the stories
reported are not fish yarns.
Yesterday one party presented
the editor of the Herald with
three beauties. These will be
duly consumed today. Thanks
boys.   Call again.
C. R. Biggart, of Vancouver,
is in town this week looking for
a location,  and   he   expects   to
' very   soon   start a  business in

Why Come to Canada ?--
���and the Answer
A new phase of the nation-
wide exodus from the States, the
effects of which are now being
felt with a daily increasing force
in Canada, is pointedly shown up i
in the current issue of Winnipeg
Once-a-Week, under the caption, :
"Still Trekking Northward���and
Why." It has been shown, according to recent press dispatches
that no less than 75,000 American
farmers came to Western Canada between July 1910 and July
1911, and hundreds of thousands
before that time, this great army
of home-seekers bringing with
them about $1,000 per capita.
"No wonder," says the correspondent, "there is grave concern
now felt in American commercial centres in view of this situation, and that United States officials are engaged in a desperate
search for arguments that might
dissuade their fellow countrymen
from a well-formed purpose."
The correspondent asserts, however, that there is a serious flaw
in this method of procedure on
the part of the United States
authorities, inasmuch as while
their attention is being concentrated so vigorously upon this
great publicity campaign, designed toadvertise the advantages
and opportunities open in the
States, another powerful array
of forces is to be found engaged
with equal determination in a
campaign of a different sort, "a
rather loud and blatant campaign, which has raised serious
question in the minds of many
Americans as to whether, after
all, life is not too short to be
spent in its entirety under guard,
and surrounded by din and tumult and the alarms of demagogues and agitators."
The correspondent then takes
up the notorious dynamite conspiracy recently unearthed as a
result of the McNamara trial at
Los Angeles, and which had
ramifications in all the great industrial centres of the United
States. Under these conditions
it is easily understood why large
numbers of thoughtful Americans
are carefully considering the
question whether life and property are not just a bit more
secure under the guarantees and
safeguards of the Dominion
Government. However, were
these attacks upon the established order of organized society
merely the output of the loafer
and the street corner agitator,
peace-loving Americans would
feel no special cause for alarm.
The case takes on an entirely
different aspect, however, when
men holding positions of power
and leadership in public life assume the role of the demagogue
and conduct a systematic campaign of social  and  political up
heaved year after year ��� and especially every fourth year. "It
is in view of an approaching
national election," concludes the
correspondent, "that many fore-
sighted Americans today are regarding it expedient to turn then-
faces northward ; and from present indications the movement
during the coming season appears
likely to break all records." As
if in confirmation of these statements, J. S. Dennis, head of the
Natural Resources department of
the C.P.R. has just announced
that from careful estimates he
looks to see 200,000 Americans
settle in Western Canada in 1912.

The Birthday and How and
Where to Celebrate It
'Twas God who gave thee that birthday,
And doubtless will give others yet
With sunshine and joy to make them
And friends stand round with good cheer.
But ere you have asked for another
And waited with joy to see,
Just count up the years He's now given
And trust him while others draw near.
Just measure these counts with pennies
And drop them all into a sack;
And don't feel stingy about it,
For the Infinite Hand is never slack.
Then bring this sack with its pennies
To the " little church rooms " in the street.
And the "Aid " will count all the pennies
And God will count you your wage;
And the ladies vow on their honor
Never to tell what's your age.

A meeting of the Hazelton

at an early date next week for
the purpose of organizing for the

able that everyone in town who
has any interest in athletics
should be at this meeting. There
will be hundreds, if not thousands
of strangers in town this year
and  it is only  proper that the
town should have a first class
ball team and furnish up to date
amusement for these visitors and
new settlers.
STEEL WORK ON
SKEENA BRIDGE
To Buy Right Read Our Advs.
Actual Construction Starts First of the
Week���Everything is Now Ready
The first of next week the actual construction of the steel part
of the Skeena bridge will commence. Ira Mann, one of the
best steel men, will be in charge.
He has a large gang at work now,
and for several days past, unloading the steel and getting ready,
and once they start throwing the
steel over the river they will
make things hum.
No. 4 pier is now nearly completed. Il was above high water
mark on Sunday and thus past
all danger. The piers and all
concrete work will be completed
before the first of May although
the steel workers can get started
any time.
It has been estimated by some
of the officials that the steel work
on this bridge would be ready
for the rails by the middle of
May. Almost anything is now
possible. All the contractors
have been making new records
The steel will likely be into New
Hazelton early in July.

A number of the boys attended
the Rifle Association smoker in
old Hazelton on Thursday night.
A shoe maker and cobbler opened up in a little tent on Thirteenth Ave. this week.
Work has already commenced
on building sidewalks. Private
parties have built a good walk
from Cohen, Zackon & Co.'s store
down past the New Hazelton
Hotel.
Mr. and Mrs. Hunsacher and
Master Walter have gone to Vancouver and Seattle on a short
trip. While away Mr. Hunsacher
will undergo treatment for his
eyes.
S. D. Smith has taken a lease
of the Central Hotel which was
recently constructed by Cohen,
Zackon & Co. The place has been
fitted up in good shape and is
already doing a good business.
A land slide at Dan Stewart's
camp below the bridge last Sat'_
unlay held the trains up for a
day or two. The slide was ten
feet high and thirty feet long. A
big gang of men were put on and
soon got the track cleared again.
Ballasting between Van Ars-
dale and the Skeena Crossing is
progressing very rapidly and
word is expected daily permitting
the company to put on a service
train right up to the bridge. The
traffic between Prince Rupert and
New Hazelton is increasing so
rapidly that it cannot be handled
any other way.

Splendid progress is being
made on the new building' for
Dyde Bros, who are opening a
new lodging house. The structure
will be readv for the furniture in
another week. The building is on
section one near the corner of
Pugsley and Thirteenth Ave.
Some of the boys have discovered an ideal baseball grounds
which can be put in shape with
very little expense. It is just on
the outskirts of the town on the
way to Haguelget. Needless to
say baseball is occupying considerable time among tha fans and it
will not be long before the international game will be in full
swing.
At a citizens meeting held last
week it was decided to wire the
post office inspector at Vancouver
and also the post master general
at Ottawa urging the immediate
establishment of a post office in
the present business section. The
the citizens feel keenly on this
matter as their mail arrives several days late, although it passes
through town on the way from
Prince Rupert to old Hazelton.
The road between the old town
and New Hazelton is exceptionally bad though the stages of
Frank Carel are doing a big
business. If the weather continues fine it will not be long before the roads are in good shape.
In the meantime there is no
chance of getting lumber or building material into the town.
All the main camps between
Hazelton and Burns Lake are now
established and working. The
roads are in a terrible condition
all through the country and the
freighting of supplies from Sealey
and the Skeena Crossing is a
difficult proposition. Foley,Welch
& Stewart have 75 four-horse
teams hauling steadily and they
will be kept on the road all summer.

The many friends of Doc
Stewart were delighted to learn
this week that he had been given
a residency east of Burns Lake.
Doc is one of the most popular
boys on the whole line and he is
Coffee House and one of the most caPable-   He is
also the youngest resident engineer on the line, although he
has been with the company for
several years. He left for his
new work Tuesday morning and
he will be missed in town.

The pool rooms were all served
with copies of the amendment to
���:he act governing such places.
The new order calls for the pool
rooms to close up every night at
eleven o'clock and it also does
away with all slot machines, dice
and every other thing under the
head of a game of chance or
gambling. The general public,
are expressing feelings of resentment much stronger than the
owners of the pool rooms as the
new regulations shut them off
from amusement or a place to go.
The Sunday closing is especially
resented as there is no other-
place to go and nothing else to do
in a new frontier town.

London, Mar. 22���In the opinion of naval officers qualified to
judge, one effect of the coal strike
has been to bring the motor battleship within the range of practical politics in a way which
nothing else could have done.
For this some of the strike leaders are practially responsible.
Until the strike actually occurred
1 there was a general feeling in
I the navy that the purchase of
one or two Welsh collieries by
the admiralty would render the
fleet independent of industrial upheavals such as the present.
The speeches of one or two
i labor leaders who have openly
! boasted that one of the first
i effects of the strike would be a
nationalization 'of coal mines, in
order to keep the navy going,
have produced a result other
than anticipated by them. Nothing now will ever make the navy
trust a Welsh colliery. There is
no more conservative institution
in the world than the navy, and
motor battleships have in the
past been looked upon with general disfavor, on much the same
principle that steam was objected
to many years ago. The British
navy does not love innovations,
and objections to change has
hitherto stood in the way of progressive ideas,  just as it stood
against the watertube boiler and
the turbine.
Today  all   this   is   changed.
From the speeches of leaders it I
is amply clear that their idea of;
admiralty collieries is  merely a
means for forcing the pace at the j
expense of the state,  and inci-
dentally also at the expense of
the fleet.   A realization of this
has   made   more   disciples  fort
motor warships in two days than
two year's argument could pos-
sibly have done.   Every believer
in efficiency is   now   convinced
that the safe course lies in a navy
of the future with ships independent of coal altogether.   In other
words,   the Welsh  colliers have
made themselves a dying industry, and played into the hands of
the oil engine enthusiasts.    Up|
till   now  the   policy of   "going
I slow" with motor warships has I
, been   strictly  observed   by the j
j British   admiralty.     For   some j
J years Russia has had motor gun-
: boats.    Holland has put in hand ���
I numerous  small   coast  defence
: battleships    which  .are    motor
driven, and Italy is building five |
moi-e destroyers. ,*
We have had projects galore,
but they have not yet been translated into anything further than
one or two experimental motor
, destroyers.   At least one motor
cruiser may now be expected as
a feature of the next naval estimates, and not impossibly a
plunge will be made with a motor
Dreadnought. The British navy
is the last force in the world to
allow its efficiency to be curtailed
by any civil commotion whatever.
Plans for motor battleships exist.
In the ordinary way it is improbable that these would have come
for at least another three years,
and possibly five. Today it is
rumored that they are being immediately considered. Recent
events have totally destroyed the
argument which has hitherto
been most fatal against both oil-
stoked steamers and motor warships. This argument was that
we produced Welsh coal in our
own islands, and were therefore
certain of an ample supply,
whereas we produce no kind of
oil, and therefore have to import
it. Today this argument is perfectly invalid, since what has
happened now may even more
conceivably happen at some future date, when even greater
issues are involved.
It may be said that the navy
is now unanimously of opinion
that coal as fuel must be dispensed with. A more or less exhausted Welsh colliery may be
purchased by the admiralty with
a view to ensuring a regular supply of coal to existing warships,
so long as they last, but it may
be taken as settled beyond all
cavil or retraction that the strike
has killed "King Coal" as a motive power of future British warships. If the strike be prolonged,
there is every reason to believe
that the merchant service will
follow suit. Van. Sun.

J DOPE '
j^ JL
Wm. Sargent came into town
on Saturday night from the Surprise Croup on Clen Mountain,
where he has been looking after
the construction of a camp for
the miners who will operate on
the property this season. It will
be remembered that it was this
property which has been taken
over by those interested in the
Steamboat Mountain failure and
they will have a big gang working shortly.
Sinking on the shaft on the
Silver Standard mine was started
this week. Supt. Haskins had
no trouble in pumping the water
out of the shaft and the inflow is
much smaller than expected and
the shaft can be easily kept dry.
Bill Sweeny and party left on
Sunday with several dog teams
for the Ground Hog country to
stake some more coal lands, and
and also to do some prospecting.
They went up the Skeena on the
ice, and they will be gone for
several months. When they return it will be by the old trail
over land.
Thos. Hankin left on Sunday
with six toboggan loads of supplies for the Turnagain country
where he will spend the next few
months, presumably looking for
placer diggings. He had twenty
dogs in his string.

A New Real Estate Firm for New
Hazelton -Will Erect Office
Very Soon
Kennedy, Wilson & Co. is the
name of a new firm which will
very shortly open up in New
Hazelton for the purpose of handling real estate in that townsite,
particularly sec. 1 and 3, land,
timber and insurance. Gordon
S. Wilson is around now getting
things ready and Mr. Kennedy
will arrive shortly. They will
erect an office building in New
Hazeltion and make that their
headquarters. Mr. Wilson visited
the new town the first of the
week and he was greatly surprised at the progress that had
been made there. He bad not
been in New Hazelton since last
August and at that time there
was only a couple of small buildings and work was just starting
on the pay offices for the contractors. Today there are several
large and substantial buildings as
well as many smaller ones, and
nearly all of them are located on
sec. 1, on the property that was
cleared by Wm. Kennedy last
summer. Altogether there is
over fifty buildings in New
Hazelton and every week there
are more going up.
Speaking of the future of the
town Mr. Wilson stated that
this next summer would be a
hummer for the new town and
that it would enjoy an immense
I growth until away late in the
fall. He could not see any way
i that the business  section could
I
be moved from its present location. The buildings that have
been put up represent considerable money and the new busi-,
ness people who are coming in
will hardly locate in any other
section. Thus he figures that
the present settlement will always be good.

bring the stuff up. Mr. Jacobs

Largest Profits from Farm Poultry
Poultry keeping on the farm
has not been as profitable as it
might have been, because farmers have not given it the same
study and consideration that has
been necessary to give other
branches of farm work.
With our improved plans and
new system of raising the farm
poultry, the cost of installing and
operating a profitable poultry
business will be reduced from 25
to 50 per cent., and this will make
it possible for the farmer to increase his flock and get a larger
income from poultry.
The farmer can keep poultry in
larger flocks than is the most
profitable for the city poultryman,
and still get satisfactory returns,
as much of the necessary material
is produced on the farm at a very
small cost.    Hay,  grain, straw,

skim milk, sweet apples, mangels,
turnips, onions, potatoes all find
their place in the supplies needed
for poultry, and the farmer gets
them at normal cost. There will
be plenty of chaff from clover or
alfalfa, and its value is nearly
equal to that of cut clover or alfalfa. So it is easily seen that
the farmer has many natural advantages for conducting a profitable business.
To make the business attractive
to farmers, we cannot add to the
labor, as this is one of their most
difficult problems. With a better
system and a little more planning
a larger portion of the work will
come when there is the most time
to do it, and fortunately this is
just the time of the year when
the best returns mav be had.
All the chickens should be
hatched about February, March
and April, at the time of year
when the price of eggs is low.
This will make it possible to have
the chickens well started before
the regular farm work commences
when there will be little time to
look after the newly hatched
chickens. The surplus cockerels
will then reach the broiler age
when broilers are in the greatest
demand and bring the highest
market price. The pullets will
all commence to lay during July,
August and September, and will
then do their best laying during!

and January, the four months of
the year when eggs bring the
highest market price, and  when
the farmer will have time to give
the fowls the best care.
During December, while eggs
are selling at five cents each,
every hen hatched last February,
March or April, should net the
poultryman $1.00 per month. The
hen that does her best laying
during the months of March,
April and May, when eggs sell at
the lowest price, will earn but
from 15 to 25 cents per month
i for its owner.
For more than thirty years the
price of fall and early winter
I eggs has been more than double
! the price of eggs during the late
spring and early summer. This
can be accounted for because of
the fact that the larger percentage of the eggs have been produced by farmers who travel
alcng the road of the least resistance, allowing their hens to
have their own way, producing
eggs without much help or
thought from their keeper. It is
possible for hens, however, to
produce eggs when eggs sell at
the highest market price, if they
are at the right age and are supplied with the necessary food to
make them.
Greater profits can be had from
the production of market eggs
during the four months from
October to January, than from
the other eight months of the
year, and if we are to profit by
the market conditions that have
existed for more than thirty
years, we must be progressive
and take advantage of every opportunity.
Pullets hatched during February or March, should produce
eggs that will yield a net profit
during the year of at least $2.00,

SUEY HOUSE AND
BAKERY
and with the very best care and j
conditions it is possible to getj
several times this amount by the;
time a pullet is one year old.
In making plans for raising the
pullets, it is best to estimate that
one pullet will be raised from
every four eggs incubated, although better results can be had
under more favorable conditions.
The most active hens are the
best layers and should be selected
and kept  in separate  pens for' S<irg6Ilt & HdllCr
reproduction of the flock,   and T     , v     _.
should be fed an abundant supply | JeweIcfS Hazdton
of sprouted oats and a good quality of clover or alfalfa. The rest
of the hens for the production of
market eggs mav be kept without male birds and supplied with
a heavier ration that would be
detrimental to the fertility of
eggs from which to hatch other
chickens. They may also have
one-fourth ounce of green cut
bone or butchers' scraps daily.
It is important, however, that
the scraps be fresh and sweet;
if tainted they will produce limber neck and other diseases.
Green cut bone should never
be fed to hens that are to produce eggs for incubation.
With our improved farmers'
plans, one person can do all the
work in caring for 500 laying
hens and raising the chickens
necessary to take the place of the
older hens at the end of each
year. Pullets are about 25 per
cent, more productive than yearling hens and we find a decrease
in egg production of about 25 per
cent, each succeeding year as the
hens grow older. There are
about three plans for the farmer
to adopt that will yield a satisfactory income for his labor in
caring for the fowls.

Mr. Cowan says, that they have

On account of the water it was
necessary to stop work on the

started a drift on the vein from enjovable one

east some 600 feet where the hill

By driving this tunnel along

FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 1912
through two narrow channels
enough electrical energy is available to electrify the entire Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway from New
Hazelton to Prince Rupert, besides operating the many mines
in the surrounding district.
The electric energy that has
been running to waste for centuries, and that is still being
wasted, between Prince Rupert
and New Hazelton and Morricetown is unlimited. It needs only
big men with big, broad ideas,
big capital and some nerve.
Truly New Hazelton is the most
favored spot of British Columbia.
Great Water Power |
Being Wasted *��
CHURCH SERVICES
In all the advertising which
New Hazelton and the Hazelton
district has had the past year,
and it has had a full share, there
has been not a word about the
tremendous water power flowing
by the town, and this water
power if utilized would make
New Hazelton the greatest manufacturing city in the north and
west.
The Bulkley river, flowing past
the town, is to New Hazelton
what the Niagara river is to Buffalo, Niagara Falls and the whole
of ..Western Ontario. For a distance of some thirty miles the
banks of the Bulkley are very
high and for the most part of
solid rock, which just below the
present engineer's headquarters,
or where the depot will be located on the railway is a wonderful basin, designed by nature for
storing water. At Haguelget,
at the very door of New Hazelton, the river narrows into a canyon less than 300 feet wide, with
high banks of solid rock and a
natural flat for a power plant on
one side.
The construction of a dam 25
ft., 50 ft., or 100 ft. high is a
simple matter. There is almost
unlimited storage up river and
no land to drown. The flow of
the river can be controlled and
the power maintained at any
horse power decided upon.
It is safe to say that from
25,000 to 50,000 horse power can
be developed at Haguelget Canyon, or sufficient to operate all
the mines of the district, give
each an electric tram to the railway, operate electric railway to
all parts of the district, light
parks, river drives, and furnish
very cheap electric power for an
immense manufacturing city.
The development of the Bulk-
ley river at Haguelget is of equal
importance to the district as are
mines or the farm lands. Cheap
electric power will do more for
the upbuilding of a commercial
community, such as New Hazelton will and must be, than any
other combination of resources.
The river is there. The Canyon is there. The water is there
and going to waste for centuries.
Nature has blessed New Hazelton with a water power with few
equals on the continent. It
awaits the white man to harness
and make use of.
At Morricetown, about 20 miles
farther up the river is a magnificent falls where the same water
can be harnessed and turned to a
national asset. An equal amount
