TO GROUNDHOG
WITH SUPPLIES
Four Tons of Goods for B.C. Anthracite
Coal Workings Left this Week
Frank Jackson arrived in town
last week after a trip into the
Ground Hog coal country where
he went to prepare the way for
the first supplies. This week Mr.
Jackson started 20 dog teams of
four dogs each, off on the trail
for the B.C. Anthracite location.
The teams carried in four tons of
supplies and they will go up the
river which is much the best way
to travel. The river is now in
good shape for traveling and the
dog train will arrive at its destination in about 25 days.
With the supplies six men also
went in and they will start to
work immediately on the development. The supplies include
several drills and other plant as
well as grub for the men. This
will last until he can get in a pack
train after the snow is gone.
Mr. Jackson leaves for a trip
to Vancouver and Victoria and
when he returns he will arrange
for taking in more goods.
This is the first train of many
that will go into that country
from Hazelton between now and
the summer.
FAST WORK ON
SKEENA BRIDGE
By Time Steel Reaches Bridge Track
Laying Can Go Right
Ahead
General Superintendent Mehan
who returned yesterday from the
end of steel, says Mr. Kelliher
reports that in all probability the
work on the Skeena bridge will
be in such shape that by the time
the steel is laid that far they can
proceed right ahead and lay track
over the bridge and on the grade
already made to Hazelton and
beyond to within 50 miles of Aldermere.
Trains to Hazelton can therefore be expected within the next
few months.
The work of track laying is
hindered by the presence of three
or four feet of snow, which lies J
all the way from mile 40 to Hazel-1
ton. Track laying has been proceeding since a few days, that
through the tunnels having to be
laid by hand, the machine being
unable to operate in a confined
space.
Snow clearing squads are operating ahead of the track laying
machine and if all goes well the
steel can be laid to the bridge in
the next four weeks. All of the
caissons of the bridge are placed,
and both abutments and one pier
completed and work is proceeding on the second pier. The grade
is ready for track laying for 126
miles east of the bridge. The
rail has been laid through the
Kitselas tunnel as far as mile 106.
Cold and wintry weather quite I
unlike anything locally known
prevails inland.
The tunnel at mile 44 will, it is
expected, be ready to lay steel
through by Monday next.
Eleven stations have been com-,
Will Resign
The old timers will remember
Provincial Constable Otway
Wilkie who spent some time here
in connection with the hunt for
Gun-a-noot, the Indian murderer
a few years ago. After unsuccessful efforts to find the bad Indian,
Wilkie returned to Victoria and
was later stationed at New Westminster. He has resigned from
the provincial force giving as his
excuse that Attorney - Genera!
Bowser made a statement tantamount to accusing him of cowardly and dishonest conduct in connection with the Gun-a-noot case.
Machinery Shipped
Harvey & McKinnon has received word from John F. Cowan
stating that the first machinery
for Rocher de Boule has been
shipped and it should arrive at
the end of steel any day. This
will enable Supt. Brown to continue work on the other tunnels
planned and to make better progress. The rest of the plant for
the mine will get to the bridge
as soon as the rails.
Season's Travel
The incoming settlers and business people has started for this
season, being several months
earlier than usual. Every stage
that arrives brings up a load of
passengers, some are transient,
others will remain. Already a
benefit of the presence of the
outsiders can be felt. Everyone
of them speak of a big rush here
early in the spring. These signs
can all be taken to mean a big
business here this year ��� the
biggest ever
The railway is making great
strides and is nearing the Skeena
Bridge. High authorities state
that trains will be running to
Aldermere by fall aud to New
Hazelton by the early summer.
For the present Beirnes & Mul-
vaney's stage, which is very comfortable, handles all the passengers. Transportation is better
than ever and some can already
imagine hearing the whistle of
the trains.
Alex Wallace and W. C. Mc
Martin, of Vancouver, arrived on
Tuesday on a business trip.
Bombs in Lisbon
(Special to the Herald)
Lisbon, Jan. 31���Asa result of
the strike disorders here, eight
thousands troops are in readiness
to protect the city. The strikers
declare that they have 20,000
bombs concealed to help them
carry out their work. The troops
are under orders to raid any
places they suspect bombs concealed. There were several explosions on Wednesday.
Not Enoch R. L. Jones
(Special to the Herald)
Memphis, Ten., Jan. 31 R.
Jones lost several thousands
pounds in a Spanish swindle and
a rich Russian is in jail. His
luggage contains rich securities
and he was identified by a picture
as Jamiez which was sent by the
Madrid authorities as the hotel
keeper at Vallegida who introduced Jones to the swindlers.
Jamiez will go back to Madrid as
a witness on the invitation of the
Spanish authorities.
[This is not Enoch R. L. Jones,
late of this town. Enoch only had
J a few pounds and no security.]
DISORDERS ON
VANCOUVER STS.
I. W. W. Socialists and Unemployed
Create Trouble and will continue
to do so
(Special to the Herald)
Vancouver, Jan. 31���Following
the disorders of the unemployed
on  the streets last Sunday when
twenty-four Independant  Workers of the  World, socialists and
unemployed,  were arrested   for
attempting to hold a meeting on
j Powell   street  after the   police
| ordered them to move on,   they
! were given a preliminary hearing
j in the police court today and R.
i P.   Pettipiece will  probably   be
committed    for trial tomorrow.
I The men state that they will hold
i a meeting on Sunday in spite of
i Mayor   Findlay's    proclamation
that such would not be allowed.
Hawthornwaite and Williams will
be the speakers.

TOO MUCH TALK
LITTLE BUSINESS
Provincial Legislature  Making Slow
Progress   Mostly Marking Time
Our correspondent in Vicioria
reports that there has been little
or no business done yet. The
past week has been a talk feast.
Brewster and Parker Williams
criticised the government for
allowing contracts to be awarded
on the Canadian Northern Railway at a lower rate of wages
than usual.
Brewster also moved a resolut-
for the naval defence of the Pacific Coast, Premier McBride replying said that he thought the
Ottawa Government was doing
quite right in consulting the Admiralty before announcing a
policy.
Hockey Games off
The two days hockey games
that were being arranged by the
local club have been called off.
Telkwa wouldn't send a team,
asking that Hazelton go there
first. The Engineers and New
Hazelton couldn't get their men
off. New Hazelton may take the
locals on later. As for Telkwa it
is almost too much to expect as
the trip means two days each
way and at least three days here,
thus running up an expense account of several hundred dollars.
pleted on the first hundred mile
section. A considerable section
of the country will be opened to
traffic with the laying of the
track to Aldermere some time
during the next few months.-

The Coast Sports
(Special to the Herald)
Vancouver, Jan. 31- Vancouver  won   the British   Columbia
rugby championship by a score
of six to five.
In the Pacific Hockey League
! Westminister leads with four
wins and two looses, Victoria has
three wins and four looses, and
Vancouver has two wins and
three looses.
Mr.   and   Mrs.   J.   Leckie   of
Prince Rupert came up on Tues- j
day's stage and will  remain in
town for some little time.
STEEL IS BEING
LAID RAPIDLY
Have Reached Mile 115 and will push
on to the first Terminal
Taking everything into consideration the steel rails are being
rapidly advanced towards New
Hazelton. They have already
reached mile 115 and the good
work is being continued. The
first pause will be at Anderson's
Island, the first freight terminal
east of Prince Rupert. At this
point some of the yards will be
built in order to store supplies.
From present prospects the
freight terminal will be a busy
place in a very short time and
there will be some good business
there for a few firms.
No one doubts now but that
the rails will be at the bridge before spring and in th^t case the
trains will be running into New
Hazelton from Prince Rupert
early in the summer.
Among the railway contractors
who were in town this week
were Duncan Ross, D. A. Rankin and John Bostrom.
A Rumor Denied
Special to the Herald
Ottawa, Jan. 31��� In government circles it is stated that there
is no foundation in the rumor that
Premier Borden is contemplating
a partial reciprocity agreement
with the United States. The
premier declares that no such intimation was ever sent to Washington.
Many Women Killed
(Special to the Herald)
El Paso, Jan. 31 ���During a fire
at the Cathedral Monterey, Mexico, while a wedding was being
solemnized, many of the women
present were killed in the panic.

PERSONAL AND
LOCAL
Capt. E. McCloskie of Prince
Rupert arrived on Tuesday.
Mrs. Walters left Tuesday
morning for Seattle and Vancouver where she will purchase
her spring stock. She will return in about three weeks.
Nels. Froyd, a Swede, died in
the hospital last Saturday after
suffering from pleurisy with
heart complications. He was
buried on Tuesday when Rev. D.
R. McLean conducted the services.
Rev. G. H. Rayley, of Port
Simpson, chairman of this Methodist district, spent the past
week in and around Hazelton on
his annual visit Rev. Mr. Rayley
was greatly pleased with the
progress that has been made in
this district.
Duncan Ross states that the
big tunnel is nearing completion.
There is less than 500 feet of the
heading to do and that will be
finished before the first of April.
The rest of the work will be comparatively easy and the tunnel
will be cleaned up the first of
June. He was out last week
looking over his new contract
and getting ready to start on it. THE OMINECA HERALD, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1912.

The Hospital Needs
During the present year it may
be necessary for the Hazelton
Hospital to make an appeal to the
public for assistance in securing
some very necessary improvements to the plant of the institution. Among other things needed is an X-rays, and a new lighting and power plant. There will
be an expenditure of something
like $3000 over and above ordinary
expenses. The revenue of the
hospital will meet some of this
extra money but if the work is
undertaken other help will be
required.
As the Hazelton Hospital, while
in the name of the Methodist
church, is a public institution and
doing the same wTork and under the
same system of management of all
publically owned hospitals, there
is no doubt that the people of
Hazelton and of the whole district will gladly come to the
assistance of the institution
should the appeal be made.
The Hospital is one of the main
assets of this district. Hundreds
of local citizens are annually
benefited by it and hundreds
more will be. Aside from the
regular functions of a hospital,
the superintendent and his staff
have made the people, and particularly the young people, feel
that they are always welcome
guests there and in this way they
play an important part in the
social life of the town and district.
There is, therefore, every
reason to believe that when the
time comes, the entire amount
asked for will be readily and
quickly paid into the coffers of
the Hospital.
Hazelton Ladies Decide to Organize for
the purpose of Helping the Hospital
Upon the suggestion of one of
the staff Dr. Wrinch introduced
the question of the Ladies Auxiliary in connection with the hospital at the last annual meeting.
The ladies present took very favorably to the suggestion and those
present were appointed a committee to perfect the organization
Mrs. Wrinch is convenor of the
committee.
A perliminary meeting was
held on Saturday afternoon at the
home of Mrs. W. W. Wrathall
when quite a number were present. It was decided to hold a
general meeting on Friday,
Feb. 2nd, at the home of Mrs.
Wrinch and invitations have been i
1
sent to all the ladies in town to |
be present when the Auxiliary I
will be organized and the officers j
elected.
The work the ladies will undertake will be the care of the furnishings in the hospital and also
to assist in securing new furnishings and appliances from time to
time. The work is a noble one
and no doubt the ladies will be
very glad to work in the auxiliary. 	
Harvesting Ice
The hotels and some of the
town people are getting in their
supply of ice for next summer.
The quality is exceptionally
good and it is not expected that
there will be any shortage next
season.

It will be interesting to the
Skeena and Bulkley valley people
to known that Wm. Manson,
M. P. P. in the Legislature recently asked the Provincial Government to increase the appropriation for road building and public
works in this district. The
Hazelton district should certainly
be treated very generously. The
improvements are badly needed
in order to open up the country.

In connection with the convention of the Pacific Highway Association which will be held in
1914 the Herald has been informed
by the officials that practically
all of those who will attend will
come by automobile. It is therefore necessary that all the people
in Northern British Columbia
should pull together for the immediate construction of the road
which will connect the Hazelton-
Aldermere road with the road
from the east so that the automobiles can come through. With
the people at this end trying to
get this very important work
done, and the Pacific Highway
Association working at the other
end, there should be no difficulty
in inducing the Provincial Government to take auction and push
the work to a successful finish.
It is not because the Pacific
Highway Association will hold
their convention here 1914 that
this road should be constructed,
but because it will open up a big
country and permit settlers to
come in and improve the lands
and get their produce to the
market and their supplies home
again. Every man in the north
should lend his assistance to road
building because it means dollars to him; it means comfort and
convenience; it means that the
Northern Interior of British Columbia will be a greater country
and a better place in which to
live.    Good wagon roads and lots
of them are of even more importance to the individual than are
railways and a railway will by
no means take the place of a
wagon road.
The provincial government is
taking a more active interest in
the good roads movement all the
time. The Government and the
Pacific Highway Association are
working hand in hand to a great
extent. With the people of the
North supporting the government
in this work it will make it easier
for the government to proceed
with the work and to vote the
funds for the expenses.
A completed road from Ha/.elton
to Fort George is not too much
to hope for or to expect. It can
be accomplished before the summer of 1914 when the Pacific
Highway Association desires to
hold its convention in New Hazelton.
As everyone is well aware the
aim and object of the Pacific
Highway Association is a continuous road, suitable for automobiles, extending the entire length
of the Pacific Coast of North
America. To the far away settler or the village resident this
may seem an impossible undertaking���one only to be dreamed.
On the contrary the scheme will
be an accomplished fact in a remarkably short time. Already
2009 miles of the road is completed reaching from Vancouver to
Tia   Juana   in   Mexico.     P.   E.
Sands has cut a path from Vancouver to Hazelton, and Chester
Lawrence is now cutting a path i UNDERTAKERS and
through to the city of Mexico,
and he has every confidence in
reaching his destination in safety.
The next, and the last path to be I
found is from Hazelton to Dawson city and plans are being laid
for that trip to be undertaken in
the near future.
FUNERAL DIRECTORS
Hazelton, B. C.
Late Thos. Olson
There was a large turnout of
Hazelton people last Sunday to
pay their last respects to the late
Thomas Olson, one of the pioneers
of the district who passed away
at the hospital on Thursday, Jan.
25th. The deceased had been ill
only a few days and suffered
from pneumonia. He had not
been in the best of health for
some time and his constitution
could not stand the severe attack.
He came to Hazelton seventeen
years ago and remained a resident up to the time of his death.
He conducted the Hazelton Hotel
for a number of years and he
was also interested in other enterprises in the district.
The funeral, in change of Stephenson & Crum, left the deceaseds late residence at 2:30
o'clock. Rev. Mr. Field conducted
the services and a large crowd
followed the remains to the cemetery. He is survived by one
young daughter.

In Section One, the business district, there are lots that will

and these should be procured.
Now is the time to act, the property can be secured and held for

On another page of this issue

strong arguments as to why that
Section will be the business d.is-
rict.    Look it up.
C- W. Peck, the well known
and energetic secretary-treasurer
of the Northern Interior Land
Co., arrived in town on Wednesday to consult with V. W. Smith.
I). McLeod, and other members
of the company. He has just
returned from Vancouver where
he spent a couple of weeks on
business and it is likely that some
important announcements will be
made next week.
The town was visited this week
by the first commercial travellers
who have yet sought business in
the new city of the north.
Among those who were in town
were:- Wm. Wark, of W. Wark
& Co. Prince Rupert, C. A. Vaughan, of Sloan & Co. Ltd., and
Harrup, of J. Piercy, Morris Co.,
Prince Rupert. The best part of
their visit was that they all received good orders from the business people.
The property in Section One
is being sold very rapidly, and
especially in the business district.
But all parts of the section are
being sold. Some of the finest
residential property in the district
is located within almost a stones
throw of the present business
houses. C. W. Peck, who just
arrived from Vancouver states
that the selling agents there are
more than pleased with the results of the sale and he predicts
an unexcelled boom in New Hazelton this spring and summer.
When he arrived he was more
than surprised to find the large
number of buildings located in
Section One between Eleventh
and Thirteenth Aves. and to learn
of the big business that is being
transacted there already. He is
satisfied that the business will
remain right where it started,
especially as old Hazelton people
who have already purchased in
that vicinity will do business
there.
Speaking of the plans for this
springs work Mr. Peck said that
preparations were underway by
the Natural Resources Security
Co. and J. H. Kugler, who has
sole control of the Northern Interior Land Co's property, for
a great deal of road work and
side walks. These plans will be
announced shortly. In the meantime the scale of lots continue
brisk.
There has recently been a
big change in the Dominion
Telegraph staff on the Yukon
line. A couple of weeks ago new
men were sent out to take the
places of the boys who sent in
their resignations in order that
they might enter other fields of
labor. The old timers arrived
in town this week and they are
getting ready to start their new
work.
Billy Oag from fifth cabin was
replaced by Chas. Ellaby. W.
J. Sweeny at fourth cabin was replaced by Ed. Kelly, Hunter
Corner and A. Faulkner at third
cabin were succeeded by G. Gras-
j set and Blake. Herb. Mehan at
fourth cabin will soon be in.
Dure went out to take his place.
Sweeney says he is going prospecting and that Corner and
Faulkner are going into the
Leiard country, that Mehan, Oag
and Robt. McDonald are going to
buy a schooner and go halibut
fishing.
P. Smith at Second Cabin will
be down in the spring on a visit
before he goes north of fifth
cabin for three years. Last fall
he got two grizzley bears and one
| black  bear,   15 martin and two
! fox.
The New Post Office
All the people in town are opposed to the new post office and
telegraph office being located
away down on Ninth Ave. They
want it up around the district
where the business houses and
the residents are located. For
the present at least they feel that
the new offices should be located
where the people of the town will
be benefited. A movement is on
foot among the citizens to have
the location changed to some
property between Eleventh and
Thirteenth Aves. as that is where
the people and the business is.
The construction of the building
has not yet been decided upon.

THE BUSINESS  DISTRICT
The best business property in every town is always some
distance away from the depot. This is the case in New
Hazelton.    Section One will be the Best Business Property.
The Hazelton people themselves have bought in Section
One and all who have started business in New Hazelton are in
Section One or just, across the line. Those who have planned
for early moving will be located in Section One.
The first Business District always remains a Business
District. It is next to impossible to move the district from
where it first started. It has started in Section One and that
Section is being Rapidly Built Up. The business will stay in
Section One and that is the place to buy.
The Northern Interior Land Company own Section One and
Section Three. The prices of lots are now as low as they will
ever be.    They are liable to advance any day.
Buy your Business Lots in Section One NOW. In another
year they will be more than doubled in price. This is your
opportunity. You missed Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton,
Vancouver, and other big western cities. Don't miss New
Hazelton. It is and will continue to be the distributing point
for the vast Northern Interior.
Prices of Lots Range from
$100 to $1200 each
These   Prices   are   only   good   for   a   short   time.

WHY POULTRY PAYS SURE
AND STEADY PROFITS
==__
Statistics have been given for
many years showing the large
percentage of failures in the rner-!
candle business, often stated to
be as high as eighty-five per
cent.
Many manufacturers who be-]
gin with a great flourish of trumpets, find themselves crowded to
the wall by reason of sharp competition, or lack of capital or
credit while trying to carry a lot
of customers who are very slow
payers.
Perhaps farmers, as a class,
suffer less financial loss, and
have more uniform success, than
almost any other class of people
with money invested in their
business. Yet farmers are never
sure as to the profits of any particular year, for there are always
unforseen contingencies from
adverse and from annoying and
destructive pests that attack al-j
most any growing crop, and
whose ravages extend to small
fruits and berries, and also to
the great trees of the orchard.
But the poultry business has a
decided advantage over all the
mercantile and manufacturing
agencies, and even over any
other phase of work carried on
by the farmer. The poultry business is more certain than almost
any other enterprise that presents itself for consideration.
Is not affected by the weather,
either wet or dry. No drouth
disturbs the health of the hens or
their egg production. An unusually wet spell, early or late, that
would injur the crops while growing or being gathered, has no
serious effect upon the hens. No
devasting pests from near or far
settle down upon the hens to sap
their vigor and eat away their life.
With proper housing and care,
hens will produce eggs during
every month in the year, and
there is always a ready sale for
cash, for all that can be produced,
and the prices received always
yeild a fair profit.
So clearly has this been proved
that thousands of village and city
people are running small plants
with success, even where all the
feed and appliances are purchased
in small quantities and at the
highest prices.
But there is no other place
where poultry can be kept so
profitably as on a farm, especially
if proper and intelligent management is used. It is on the farm
that fowls can turn many of the
otherwise wasted products into
eggs and meat. No one else can
hope to compete with the intelligent and progressive farmer, in
the poultry business, so far as the
cost of production is  concerned.
What the farmers need, more
than anything else is some better
plan for disposing of their eggs
and market poultry than what'
most of them are using. Of
course, the country store is
always a refuge, where eggs can
be exchanged for groceries, but
the price is hardly ever what it
should be, though the storekeeper usually pays all he can afford.
So far, each farmer has been
compelled to work at his own
selling problem by himself, try-
ing to find private customers,
selling to merchants who pay
good prices because they have
customers who will take all the
fresh eggs he can furnish, or
sending them to some commission
house. Each of these methods
has its advantages and disadvantages; but it is quite likely that
the final and satisfactory solution
will be found in some sort of a:
co-operative plan managed by the
farmers themselves.
If you are particular about
keeping your growing stock up
to the requirements of the Standard of prelection, you will find
it necessary to cull closely. Now
and then you will find a bird with
undesirable traits; here and there
a wrong colored feather, now and
then an off colored shank. These
birds will make excellent broilers,
or roasters, and will bring you in
| a good return for their care, but
you better sell them than to keep
them. If you want your flock to
; conform as nearly as possible to
!the Standard, many sacrifices
must be made. A bird with
many excellent points may have
to go, if you find that he has one
disqualifying feature. The best
are none to good for the enthusiastic fancier,  and if you  keep
your flock up to the Standard,
you will not regret it in years to
come, for as you breed from
year to year you will be getting
better birds with each successive
season.
The poultry business is subject
to the same laws that prevail in
other lines. Success is not reached by chance, nor do successful
poultrymen reach their goal at
the first attempt. So when you
read of remarkable results by
some well known experts, do not
get the idea that you can reach
their success at your first trial
and with little effort. It will
take close and careful study, as
well as every-day work to get a
good start in the business. But
there is no other business that
will give surer and better returns
for the same amount of time
and money invested. Be on the
lookout for things that might
cause trouble, and if you make a
mistake, never repeat it. You
ought not to fail twice at the
same place.
best. Some of those that develop slowly may in time show up
even better than the fellow that
comes along so rapidly. The
writer recalls one year of having
a fine bunch of cockerels. The
best of these were put together
to condition them for fancy purposes. The rest were put in a
pen by themselves. After several weeks it was noticed that
some of the supposed inferior
specimens were coming along at
a fine rate, and in time they even
surpassed some of the best in the
other lot. Don't kill off for market a lot of cockerels until you
know what they are. Many a
prize winner has been found in a
lot of birds that for the time being did not show up well. It
takes maturity to put the finishing touches to a cockerel, and if
you can wait, you may be more
than pleased with the result.

NEW HAZELTON
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway have been ordered, by the Board of Railway Commissioners to build
and maintain a station at New Hazelton, and it is our belief that we control the railroad townsite.
Here are a few of Our Reasons for believing that Hazelton will develop into a big city
Hazelton is the centre of a great mining district.
Hazelton has a large agricultural and fruit district
surrounding it.
Hazelton will be the centre of branch railroads to the
mining districts.
Hazelton has the only anthracite coal in Canada, equal
in extent and quality to that of Pennsylvania.
Hazelton will be the first large point east of Prince
Rupert on the Grand Trunk Pacific.
Hazelton has the raw materials for smelters, factories,
and sawmills at its doors.
Hazelton is already an established point and has an
established trade.

signed applications to join the
club, and some of whom are still

headquarters in London, and no

desire they are members of the
which we see our way at present,
and to some extent in the future,
and-��by which we are seen.
Being more practical in our
answer as to what the Overseas
Club is: I think it can be described as an opportunity, just an
opportunity for understanding
and appreciating and respecting I
each other more.
The late Governor  General of i
Overseas Club, the  membership j Canada did his best to impress
of   which   according   to   latest \ on his last audiences in  Eastern
accounts numbers 72,052.
I have been asked, Gentlemen,
Canada that the distrust and line
of cleavage   between   east and
west in this Dominion, and between French Canadian and
British would pass away when
the people came together more,
and so understood each other
better. Gentlemen that retired
Governor General is an enthusiastic member of the Overseas
club. There is a good deal in
what Lord Grey so hopefully advanced; though I speak doubtfully, where he spoke enthusiastically, my doubt arises from
appreciation of national characteristics, as well defined and as
different oftimes as personal
characteristics: just by stateman-
ship those angular differences
may be knit, as the regular particles of granite are knit, and may
make a more enduring mass than
a sugar plum, though it be ever
so big, it has no angles in its
material.
The organizer of the Overseas
club in London sent to your secretary a remarkable letter of
j\ew Year greeting; hesuggested
that we might learn from Japan
in the inculation of patriotism, he
advanced the plea that our proper place, with our traditions and
our beliefs, is the nursery and
the schoolroom. Your branch
has assimilated his ideas as best
it can, we have asked Miss Soal
and Miss Sharpe, the ladies who
teach school at Hazelton to join
our association as honorary members, and to wear as a brooch
the badge of the Overseas club:
they have graciously consented
to do so.
Gentlemen, you will have
noticed the progress of the club
as reported in the columns of the
Daily Mail newspaper, you will
perhaps have heard that at their

On the Upper Bulkley
Ed. McBeth loaded the launch
Kit-ex-chen on sleighs last Friday morning and started for
Telkwa where it will be used
next summer on the upper Bulk-
ley and the Morris rivers. Last
summer it operated on the Skeena
between Hazelton and Sealey and
it also made a couple of trips to
Kitselas. Messrs. Laroque &
O'Neil had a successful season,
but as practically the entire town
of Sealey has moved to New
Hazelton and with the approach
of steel and the advance of the
railway contractors there will be
more business on the upper Bulk-
ley.

POPULAR PARK
(Special Correspondence)
A Market Needed
A special meeting of the residents was held on January 25th
last in the new meeting house
and a society was formed under
the name of Popular Park Progressive Association. J. McCully
was elected president and J. P.
Thorkildson, secretary. The
society will meet every Wednesday night at seven o'clock in the
Meeting House and a live topic
will be selected for each night.
After the organization some
time was spent in discussing the
local market. One speaker spoke
very strongly on the subject. He
said that there was supposed to
be a good "local market" for the
produce raised in the locality. As
a matter of fact he could never
locate it and found that in order
to dispose of his stuff he had to
hawk it about. Such should not
be the case. A local market
where the farmers could go on
certain days and get current
prices for their goods would be a
great benefit to both the producer
and the consumer.
If the Popular Park Progressive Association continue such
subjects and pull together they
will accomplish much for the
benefit of the district.
