On Monday night Supt. Haskins of the Silver Standard Mine,
arrived in town with the first
mining machinery that has yet
been brought into the Hazelton
district. Besides having a full
load of fixtures in his own sleigh,
two four-horse teams hauled up
the boiler, hoist, pumps and engines, and on Tuesday morning
took them out to the Silver Standard property where they are
now being installed and made
ready for immediate use.
The Silver Standard have dedi-
ded to continue to sink the shaft
on the big vein on which they
sunk about 85 feet last fall. It
was from this shaft that they
got the $700 and $800 ore.    It is

the intention to continue work
to a depth of between 200 and
300 feet and as soon as the
machinery is running ar.d the
water is pumped out the miners
will be set to work.
Just now it is impossible to get
the compressor plant and drills
up the river and they will have
to wait until the steel reaches
the bridge, which will be less
than one week now. In the
meantime the sinking on the
shaft will be done by hand.
Before the summer gets well
advanced work will also be started on the big tunnel which will
be started from the wagon grade
and driven into the hill to cut the
veins. This tunnel will be the
main working tunnel.

in the constituencies around here
and are arranging meetings to
complete organization for a great

of J. McGeer, who saya  he will
run as an Independent Liberal,
there is no idea who will  be the
standard bearers of the party in

Ottawa, March 6 The railway
commissioners yesterday gave
out their decision on the Fort
George townsite depot. They
ordered the G. T. P. to place the
depot on the Indian reserve at
least 3,500 ft. from the Fraser
River. The exact spot was not
mentioned but the indications
are that it will be  near the Ne
chaco river.
A huge mass of data consisting
of maps, blue prints, petitions
and sundry documents were put
in from hundreds of property
owr.ers from all parts of Canada
and the United States. The application was made on behalf of
the Natural Resources Security
Co. for its clients and Mr. Hammond was the chief witness.

Dctrglas Sutherland, of Prince Rupert,
the Best Man to Handle this
kind of Business
As will be seen by his adver-j
tisement in another column of'
this issue, Douglas Sutherland,
of Prince Rupert, has taken over
the interests of the Prince Ru-
pert Storage and Forwarding'
Co., and will conduct the business !
in his own name in future. Mr.
Sutherland is thoroughly posted
in all lines of transfering and
shipping business, with customs
brokerage and the storage busi-
ness. For many years he was
connected with both railway and
steamship companies, and has a
thorough knowledge of that bus-
ness. He is also an old timer in
the north being the C. P. R. passenger and freight agent Prince
Rupert. He is well-known in
the north. His charges for transfering, storage, forwarding goods
and for customs brokerage are
very moderate. Prompt attention
is given to all orders and every
detail is handled thoroughly.
The people of Hazelton and district who have any goods coming
up or through the customs will
do well to have Mr. Sutherland
look after them. It will save
trouble and expense and give
great satisfaction.
Board of Trade
A NATURAL BEAUTY SPOT AT HAZELTON WHICH MAKES
AN IDEAL PICNIC GROUNDS
Reached the South Pole
(Special to the Herald)
London, March 6���It is reported here that Capt. Scott has
reached the south pole, but the
Royal Geographical Society is
unable to vouch for its authenticity.
Less than half a dozen turned
up at the Board of Trade meeting
on Monday night and it was adjourned until this evening. It
is called for eight o'clock sharp,
in the Presbyterian rooms, and
every member who has any interest in the welfare of the district is requested to be present.
The meeting is for the purpose
of passing a resolution requesting
the Provincial Government to
lend assistance to the construction of a railway up the Skeena
from Hazelton to Ground Hog
coalfields.
Minimum Wage Bill
(Special to the Herald)
London, March 6 At a conference between Premier Asquith
and the executive council of thej
miners the premier guaranteed,
that if the miners would return
to work, parliament would name
a minimum wage bill. This will
bring about a settlement and also
give relief. Prices of provisions
have soared tremendously.

It is believed here that Harry
Wright, the present member for
Nelson, will be defeated. There
dissatification in the camp there
and two party candidates may
face the people there. The Liberals will probably bring out a
strong man. It will be next
week before the campaign starts
in earnest. Meanwhile preparations are under way for a great
fight.
Bridge Collapsed
(Special to the Herald)
Winnipeg, March 6���The Canadian Northern bridge near Saskatoon collapsed and the rear
sleeper of a passenger train fell
with the broken span. Seven of
the passengers were injured and
it is feared that Dr. Spalding, of.
Saskatoon, will die.
The executive of the Liberal
Association has changed its weekly meeting night from Monday to
Thursday evenings.
Passenger Train Wrecked
(Special to the Herald)
Vancouver, March 0 The Soo
passenger train which left here
yesterday for St. Paul was today
wrecked near Three Valley some
300 miles east. Fireman Duckworth, Kamloops, was killed.
Want Church Union
By the vote on Church Union
the Presbyterians of Hazelton
declared themselves unanimously
in favor of the movement. The
vote was taken on Sunday night
and there was a good sized congregation present. Before the
vote was taken the pastor explained several features in connection with the union and they
were shown in a decidedly favorable light. The west should go
unanimous as the west will be
the greatest benefactor.
T. A. Beaudet and Chester
Lawrence, the Pathfinders on the
way to Mexico, and who were
held up by the Insurgents, have
resumed the journey again. The
latest word from the front is as
".Hows:
j'aPacific Highway officials have
,ii19 -unced, in the event T. J.
Beaudet, who is pathfinding the
route for the Pacific Highway
from Los Angeles to the City of
Mexico, reaches his destination,
that the formal presentation of
the gold medal will be made at
the Annual Pacific Highway Convention, to be held at San Francisco on August 5th, 6th and 7th
of this year. In addition to this
being an interesting feature of
the Annual Convention, it will be
a fitting way to honor the pathfinders as representatives from
Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, California, and
Mexico are expected to be present
at this gathering.
Information has just been received from Chester Lawrence,
who accompanied Mr. Beaudet on
this trip has been forced to return to the States because of an
attack of malaria fever. Mr.
Lawrence is now in Los Angeles,
actively looking after the details
of path-finding from that end, as
he has now almost recovered
from his illness.
In  speaking of the trip, just
after   Mr.    Lawrence   returned
from   Mexico,   he stated: "The
trip will not  be abandoned but
i will  be completed if it takes ten
! years to get  through.    When I
left I gave instructions that the
Cadillac must reach the Capitol
of Mexico or never return to this
I country.    It has cost too much to
give it up, and as a matter of
i fact, it is much easier to get out
by the way of the City of Mexico
| than it is to retrace our route."
Mr. Beaudet is now in the
Province of Jalisco, and will be
able to complete his trip within a
few days provided war conditions
permit. This, however, has been
true for the past week and it is
decidedly uncertain as to just
when it will be possible for this
daring automobile driver to continue to the City of Mexico.
Through the Ice
The mail stage which left here
Thursday morning for the end of
steel went through the ice on the
Skeena river. One horse was
lost and the mail was delayed a
few hours. The accident happened at Sealey and when the stage
went down one man jumped and
caught the lead team and kept
them pulling while the driver
threw off the mail, all of which
was saved before the sleigh sank.
The robes and the seats were
lost and the horse that was drowned was one they were leading behind. The sleigh was recovered
after considerable trouble.
Drive 400 Foot Tunnel
Pete Schoffer arrived in town
this week and he is getting ready
to start the season's work.    He
will within the next few days,
take several tons of supplies and
powder into the property on Hudson Bay Mountain.    Schoffer has
a contract to drive a 400 foot tun-
, nel on  the property   that   was
bonded last fall by R. G. Steele
to English  capitalists and they
are going to develop it on a large
scale.     There are three separate
[ groups with sixteen claims in all.

vote again defeated Gill for the
mayoralty.   G. F. Cotterill was

LETTER FROM THE EAST
(By a Staff Correspondent)
Efforts are being made at]
Ottawa to have the Dominion
Government put in trunk telegraph and telephone lines across
Canada and thereby make the
rural and local lines independent
of the Bell Telephone Co. It
would also give the isolated government lines which are now a
losing proposition, a chance to
make a profit.
ooo
Ontario, Manitoba and Quebec
are each making desperate efforts
to enlarge their territory by extending their bounderies north.
Ontario and Manitoba are fighting
each other over the ownership of
Fort Churchill one of the prospective ports on Hudson's Bay.
Ontario wants the south side of
the river to make an Ontario
port and an Ontario city with
Manitoba having a port and city
on the north side of the river.
On the other hand Manitoba
wants to shut Ontario out entirely from the port. The average
Canadian does not care much
who gets the port, because he
can see no reason why a national
port should be effected by being
located in any particular province. At the present time Fort
Churchill does not care whether
its bar-rooms have to close at
eleven or twelve o'clock; whether
it learns to spell out of T. Eaton
Co's school books or get Winnipeg mud on its boots when it
goes to legislature. What Fort
Churchill is most anxious to
know is how long navigation up
there is open each year.
There does not seem to be any
good reason for giving Fort
Churchill and a lot of promising
territory to any of the old provinces. Why not make new ones?
They will develop faster.
Quebec is not quite so modest
in her demands. She wants the
whole of Ungava, a barren looking land on the map but one
which will undoubtedly prove
wonderfully rich in mineral
wealth. Inasmuch as Quebec
still clings to the idea that Quebec is Canada and all the English
speaking provinces are aliens, it
would be most regrettable if
Quebec's provincial legislation
which would be nothing less than
a crime to fasten upon this great
territory. But Quebec always
has a pull at Ottawa, no matter
which party is in power, and she
will probably get what she is
after. G.R.T.S.

BILL TO HOODOO
BRITISH COLUMBIA
Vancouver Picked as the Main Loser
in Proposed G.T.P. Branch
Lines Deal
Victoria.���Bill number twenty-
three introduced bv the government is a bill to hoodoo (as its
number implies) the people of
British Columbia generally, and
the people of Vancouver particu-
arly, by means of an agreement
with Foley, Welch & Stewart,
connected with the Grand Trunk
Pacific Branch Lines Company
and the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway Company to construct
and operate a line of railway from
Vancouver city via North Vancouver, Howe Sound, Squamish
River, Lillooet and the Fraser
River to Fort George.
The bill and agreement authorizes the government to guarantee
the bonds of the railway company
(for an undetermined number of
years but not less than thirty) to
the extent of $35,000 a mile, both
as to principal and 4 per cent interest, the length of the road being placed at 450 miles.
To understand this bill it must
be read in conjunction with bill
Twenty-four, which incorporates
Foley, Welch & Stewart and
others as the Pacific Great Eastern
Railway Company.
The most important clause in
the bill is clause eight, which
provides that the government
may modify passenger and freight
rates, having regard in so doing
to the position and interests of
the railway company. The position of the company will be that
it will have an authorized indebtedness of fifty-two million dollars
or $115,555 per mile for 450 miles
of railway, without terminals ;
and its interests are that it must
pay interest upon this enormous
amount and, to a large extent,
fictitious indebtedness before any
modification of rates can take
dace.
Clause ten of the agreement'
provides that the government]
shall advance money to the com-j
pany to make good any deficit
during the first three years ���
operation, the maximum amr. jIn j
of such liability being $6., ,__*0|
per annum.

Vancouver. Development of
properties in the Groundhog
mountain coal basin which in the
past few months has come before
the public eye on account of railway construction, making it
possible to ship coal, will start in
the spring, according to Mr.
Andrew Laidlaw, of Spokane who
is heavily interested in several
extensive mining enterprises in .
the northwest.
Mr. Laidlaw has succeeded in |
acquiring 12,800 acres in the new
coal basin.   The price is witheld
but, judging by the prices being
asked  bv original locators,   the j
consideration was a large one.
"Although the report of Mr. G.
S. Malloch, the Dominion geolo- j
gist, on these coal fields showed
a large percentage of ash," said
Mr. Laidlaw, at the Vancouver
hotel last night, "It must be considered the tests were from surface coal.     Some of it shown me
DIRECT LINE TO
MARS
LEAVE ORDERS AT HAZELTON HOTEL
Declaring that residents of
Mars have mastered the problem
of the radium rays and that, with
1 proper facilities, it would be possible to read messages from the
earth's neighbor. Professor Fred
Taylor, of Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, a recognized
authority on astronomy left North
Vancouver yesterday with a mas
of data which may result in extended researth being made into
the theory of "attempted communication between the earth
and Mars becoming ultimately
successful."
For the past two months Prof.
Taylor has been carrying on his
investigations on Grouse Mountain. According to statements
made by him to C. W. Knight, of
North Vancouver, had learned
that there was an exceptionally
secluded place to be secured in
the vicinity of the Ambitious
City. On arriving here last December, the professor established
a camp on Grouse Mountain.
He states that during the sixty
days he spent on the mountain
he made a study of certain light
effects noticed in the sky. Prof.
Taylor asserts that from the
regularity of the flashes noticed
nightly it is his belief that resi-
! dents of Mars are trying some
experiments, the ultimate hope
of which is to perfect communication with the earth. He also
states that he believes they are
experimenting with radium rays
for the reason that in the ultra-
ether zone nothing but radium
could be transmitted through any
such great space.
Mr. Knight says he engaged
the professor in conversation regarding this subject. He said
that Prof. Taylor informed him
it was the purpose of the Johns
Hopkins University to solve the
problem of intercommunication
between the earth and Mars,  if
was true anthracite and some is
excellent semi-anthracite. On
the locations which I have acquired there are many outcrops.
These will be prospected. I expect to start work there this
season.
"The Groundhog coal fields are
not a new discovery by any
means. It was known anthracite
coal existed there eight years ago
and thousands of acres were
located. Men have been prospecting there for years. Popular attention, however, only lately was turned towards Groundhog
on account of railway construction by the Grand Trunk Pacific.
I understand railway lines will
probably be extended from
Hazelton and Stewart. The G.
T. P. no doubt will need coal and
by the other route into Stewart
it will be possible -".o reach tidewater in a comparatively short
district."
possible.
"I came to the conclusion that
they had some immense quantity
I of radium or something which
we liken to that,  as a result of
lmy investigation made while living on Grouse Mountain," was
the statement which Mr. Knight
attributes to Prof. George Taylor.
"Was it your object in coming
here to investigate the reported
attempts of residents of Mars to
communicate with the earth ?
asked Mr. Knight.
"I have no doubt in my mind
1 at all that they have solved the
j p-'oblem of long distance messa-
j ges,    transmitted   by   rays   of
light,"    replied   Prof.    Taylor,
i "and on account of the regularity
of   the flashes,   I believe   they
I were,   and are,   attempting   to
'communicate with the earth."
i
"Can it be done?" Interpolated
' the professor in answer to a re-
i quest for a definite reply. "If
I we knew that, Johns Hopkins
college would not be spending
i money for our research."
Rev. Father Coccola who is in
| charge of the  Roman   Catholic
I Church    in    and    around   Fort
George,   arrived   in   town   last
I week   and   after   spending   the
week  end  here left on Monday
for Prince Rupert, where he had
been  called   by   wire.      Father
1 Coccola made the trip from Fort
I George to Hazelton by dog team
\ and by stage and for a man of
his years it is a remarkable trip.
i He reports everything in his district in splendid  shape and   the
people are all optimist and looking for a big season this summer,
and from then on  it will be a
! steady  and continuous growth.
; When the reverend father completes his business in Prince Ru-
,pert he will probably return to
Fort George by way of Vancouver.

Coast papers report that Lewis
Duncan has made a deal on the
! Great Western Group of claims
on Four Mile Mountain for the
sum of $10,000. Victoria capital
is behind the deal. The Great
West Group is situated close to
the sawmill on Two Mile creek
1 and is one of the closest properties to town and to transportation. It shows a large strong
vein of quartz containing galena
and a small amount of yellow
copper. It is understood that the
new owners will do considerable
amount of development work this
year.
Recent arrivals from the south
report that E. L. Kinman has
purchased the mining machinery
from a defunct mining company
that had been operating on Grib-
ble island and that he will move
the plant to the Erie property on
Four Mile mountain just as soon
as transportation will permit. It
is Mr. Kinman's intention to drive
a 500 ft. tunnel into his property
and get it ready to ship ore this
year.
	
Visitors to Rocher de Boule
Mine who returned to town on
Sunday last report that the shaft
on the No. 1 vein, or the upper
vein, was down twenty-five feet
on Saturday and it showed a vein
four and a half feet wide of ab-
solutely solid chalcopyrite orei
which has heretofore run from 20
to 30 per cent in copper. This
shaft will be sunk a considerable
distance yet. Work is also progressing on the drifting on the
lower vein in the tunnel at 100
feet depth and the ore is improving all the time. The vein is
widening out and the values are
improving.

The Babine Mining Co. on
Four Mile Mountain will resume
operations as soon as the spring
opens up. The company has
been disappointed with the work
accomplished in the past and
they have decided upon a policy
of operations for this season
calculated to make up for the
past, and it is fully expected
that before the summer is over
that the Babine Mine will be
placed on the top with the best
properties in the district. The
mine is close to transportation
and there is no reason why there
should not be a lot of money
taken out of there. They have
good strong veins of high grade
ore, and of some sixteen assays
taken it averages over $200 to
the ton. Mike Callaghan, who
took charge of the property late
last summer, will have charge of
it again this year and he will
There will be a great boom in
mining development here this
summer. Besides Rocher de
Boule, the Harris Mines, the Silver Cup, Silver Standard, there
will be gangs working on the
Babine property,on the Erie, the
Sunrise and the Great Western.
Announcement has already been
made on these. The new owners
of the Ohio group will also be
among the active workers. In
addition to these properties
which are all within a very few
miles of Hazelton, there will be
great development on the properties farther afield. Altogether
there will be the biggest season
here that has ever been and will
exceed the most optimistic expectations.
The boys in town are very enthusiastic over the ore being
exposed on the Rocher de Boule
property, both in the shaft on
the upper vein and in the tunnel
on the lower vein. The ore in
the shaft is running around the
$70 mark and the vein is five
feet wide and it has been uncovered for over 300 feet on the
surface.

POULTRY DEPARTMENT
Productiveness of the Poultry Plant
Why is it that some poultry
plants are productive and some
unproductive ? Why is it that
some men make a success with
poultry and some are not able
even to make ends meet? You
can answer the questions by asking yourself why some men
make a success of the dry goods
business and some fail. To a
Very large extent it is the man
behind the hen. The productive
plant is run in such a way that
the profits are sure and the gain
certain. The man in charge
makes it his business to know
what his birds are and what they
are doing. In fact he knows just
what each pen of birds are doing
and if he finds one or two that
are not producing in the way
they should, something is immediately done to change conditions. The man in charge of the
dry goods store is constantly inspecting the work done in each
department, and if he finds that
some one department is not
showing a profit he investigates
the matter. If it is the saleslady, then another one is secured;
if it is the quality of the goods,
then a better and more attractive
grade is purchased. The thing
that is done in both cases is to
find out the trouble before it becomes chronic. To permit the
unproductive pen of birds to continue is to invite disaster. The
condition must be changed, even
if the whole lot of birds is disposed of.
If   the   beginner   is   working
more especially for eggs, then
the trap nest should be used to
determine the standing of each
and every bird. The poor ones
must be weeded out and only the
good layers retained. There is
no use having any guess work
about the matter. There is only
one way and that is to find out
for certain which hens lay and
which do not. Even when the
birds are from good stock, you
will find now and then one
which is not as productive as
the others. These birds should
be taken from the pen not simply
because you do not want them
in with your good layers, but because you do not want to breed
from poor layers.
The plant that is bringing in a
good revenue each year is composed of birds of great physical
stength. The stamina and vigor
of each bird should be investigated. If there are weaklings, get
rid of them. Breeding year after
year from the same foundation
stock means a gradual weakening
unless you are keeping up the
constitutional vigor of the birds
by a careful process of elimination of the poorer specimens.
If you do not do this, the time
will come when your birds will
not respond to the careful system
of feeding which you have
worked out in the past. They
will be unresponsive to the best
care that you can give them,
simply because it is not in them.
They are a run-down lot of birds,
and the productive qualities
which   were  in  their   ancestors
are lacking in them. The strength
and vigor are lacking, and it
takes about all that they eat to
keep up their vitality. Sometimes a small breeder will have !
a yardful of such birds ar.d he
does not know that there is anything wrong with them. Have
you not seen flocks that were
lifeless and did not seem to care
to eat? They were a run-down
lot of birds and the productive
qualities were not there. Those
birds were being kept at a loss.
You must have strong, vigorous
birds in order to get the best results in any phase of work.
Then there is the man-end of
the proposition. The hens may
lay well and have the strength
and vigor back of them which is
so essential, but if the man fails
to get the best prices for the
!eggs, then the plant will not be
jas  productive as it should  be.
��� The man in charge of the plant
. should  study  the market.     He
should know what strictly fresh
eggs are bringing at all seasons
j of the year.     Do not go by your
��� country store price. They regulate this to suit themselves.
Many times they are paying one
t price and the city price for the
i fresh quality will be ten or fifteen
I cents higher. Keep in touch
i with the city price of eggs and
I then demand this price for your
\ goods. A few cents per dozen
j may mean the difference be-
i tween profit and loss and may
i amount to a very large sum in a
year's time.
The very best prices for eggs
are obtainable from the private
egg trade in the large village or
city. If you look up this trade
you will find it without difficulty.
You will find that people in the
: city are eager to get good butter
and eggs. They are willing to
pay a good premium when they
know for a certainty that they
are getting the best there is.
If you can assure them that you
will bring them eggs that are
laid within a few days from the
time you bring them, they will
be willing to pay you at least
five cents above the market price
for the best quality of eggs.
This will mean that your eggs
will bring quite a bit more that
if sold to your country store or to
the village market. You will be
getting a good bonus by taking
the eggs to your customers.
This will mean the greatest returns from eggs that you can
possibly expect.
This same thing is true with
the broilers and roasters. Have
them in condition for the best
market which pays the best price.
When you sell either of these
kinds of birds they should Oe
plump and in prime condition.
This is not simply for the pleasure
of your customer, but for your
own profit also, as you will get
much more for each bird sold.
Broilers that are not fatted will
mean quite a loss to you when a
large number of them are sold.
If you could have added a pound
or even half a pound to each bird
what a difference it would make
in the grand total.
The owner of the productive
poultry plant is watching the
grain market as closely as the
miller. He waits till grain is
down as low as he thinks it will
go, and then buys his supply. If
he cannot store such a quantity
as would carry him through,then
he stores what he can and buys
till the price goes up higher than
he wants to pay. This means
that the raw material is costing
him as little as possible and he is
getting the highest prices for his
produce. He is working the
game at both ends, which is the
proper thing to do. There is a
vast difference between crop reports as they seem to be and
crop reports as they really are.
If the poultryman will keep his
eye on the market it may save
him many dollars in the long run.
Watch all along the line and
stop the leaks. Look for chances
to improve conditions on your
plant. Make the most of everything and you will have a plant
that will be productive in every
sense of the word.

SECTION ONE - new hazelton
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.

Pat Welch paid a flying visit to
town last week and left on Sunday to visit the other end of the
contract.
A. L. McHugh was in town a
couple of days and on Tuesday
visited Silver Standard mine.
The big addition that Cohen &
Zackon are building to their store
on Pugsley St. is now about completed and they are moving their
goods into it.
. Jas. Richmond received a wire
this week appointing him post
master, providing he had a location at New Hazelton in the centre of lot 882, Sec. Two. Mr.
Richmond now has a large store
on Twelfth Ave.. Sec. One, and
in view of the proviso in the ap-
pointmen, he will not accept the
position.
VERY RICH ORE
ON SILVER CUP
A new restaurant will be opened early next week in connection
with the New Hazelton hotel.
The building is nearly completed
and the fixtures are expected to
arrive daily. It will be in charge
of a first class man.
The Conservative Association
met on Monday night and elected
J. A. Hodder a delegate to attend
the convention in Prince Rupert
on Saturday. The Association
also passed a resolution unanimously supporting Wm. Manson as
the candidate.
The latest word from Vancouver is to the effect that the owner of Sec. Two has decided upon his plans for the development
of his property. Work will start
before the first of April, the
Herald has been informed, on
the clearing of 30 or 40 acres,
grading Ninth Ave. and Laurier
St., and building sidewalks on
both sides. The financial end for
a big hotel on Ninth Ave has also been provided. All this work
is to be underway by  April lst.
Duke Vein has Widened out to Two
Feet���Ore is very Similar
to Silver Standard
Announcements have been received here of the mariage of
Leslie L. Martin, who has been
with D. A. Rankin at Hardscra-
ble for several years, to Miss
Bernice Medberry, daughter of
C. .1. and Mrs. Medberry, Fond
du Lac, Wis. The ceremony was
performed on Feb. 14 and after
their honeymoon Mr. and Mrs.
Martin will make their home at
Hardscrable. Mr. Martin is well
known along the line of construction and the boys extend to him
congratulations.
The Duke vein on Silver Cup
is proving itself away beyond all
expectations. The foreman in
charge of the  work  during the
I winter brought down a sack of
ore to New Hazelton on  Monday
! and it is very high grade stuff,
'\ and resembles  very   much  the
Silver Standard ore.
The tunnel on the Duke vein is
'. now in considerably over 100 ft.
; From a few inches at the start
the vein has now widened out to
two feet and the foreman is sat-
: isfied that they have passed all
faults in the vein, and the ore is
, improving all   the   time.     The
1 samples brought down will run
well over the $100 mark although
it is not the intention to get any
assays yet.
The management of the company are well pleased with the
i results and   they   will   proceed
j with a big campaign of develop-
J ment this summer.     The  local
stock holders, who are many, are
delighted with this ore, samples
of which are on exhibition in the
Herald office.
TO USE A CABLE
ACROSS THE RIVER
For Handling the Freight at Skeena
Crossing for New Hazelton
and the Valley Work
There is great activity at the
Skeena Crossing bridge preparing to handle the big freighting
business which   will shortly  be
; started from that point.    Within
less than a week the steel will
have reached the bridge and it
will  stop there for a time.    The
contractors  are   building stable
'. room for 100 horses  which  will
, be engaged in freighting to New
\ Hazelton and the vallev.
In order to transfer the freight
across the river a big cable is being erected similar to the one in
Kitselas last summer. Thus no
delay will be caused the grading
contractors by the construction
of the bridge.
As a result of this move the
people in New Hazelton will be
greatly benefited by the great
many men and teams travelling
through.

Since the decision of the Board of Railway Commissioners making the future town at New Hazelton, the sale of lots, both here and in Vancouver,
have been away beyond expectations.
Nearly all of the Business Houses in the
Old Town of Hazelton have Secured Lots
And as the choice locations are being rapidly
picked up by outside people, those who had the
foresight to obtain the
best locations can consider
themselves fortunate as
we predict that in a very
few months some of these
will be worth three times
what has been paid for
them.
To you who have not
yet secured your lot let us
say:���This is the opportunity we have all been
waiting for���
- A UNITED TOWN -
Don't delay in securing
your lots as they are being
sold so rapidly that in a
week from now it will be
difficult to obtain a really
good location without paying someone else a profit.
You Must Have a Lot if you intend to continue in Business in this district.

Late Wife of Champagne Manufacturer Would Marry "Mad Prince."
Teheran, Persia.   The Belgian
I woman  who aspires to become
i Queen of Persia,  not as head of
i the harem, hut as the sole wife
! of the sovereign, is well known
< here.    She visited Persia first in
I the   winter   of   1908   and   then
heralded as an explorer of wealth
iand station.    She called herself
! Countess Clermont-Tonneur, and
, everybody treated her as a great
lady.    As a matter of fact, it is
now learned by the government
that her ladyship is the divorced
wife of a well known champagne
manufacturer   from  whom   she
obtained several million francs.
While here the countess became well acquainted with Persian affairs and, calling herself
an ardent royalist, she offered to
back the family of the shah
against the demands of the people. Her affections went out to
Prince Sallared, the third brother
of the reigning monarch, and she
followed him into exile in 1909.
She is now with the prince's
army in Kurdistan and is credited with being a fine stategist.
Mounted on an immense black
charger, the pretty woman, her
blonde hair loose, reaching to the
saddle, her breast covered with
decorations, leads the cavalry
forces. She is said to wear bullet proof harness under her uniform, and in battle she sports a
silver helmet with a visor, which
is likewise bullet proof. Yet her
courage is undaunted and the
little success her lover-prince
boasts so far can be traced directly to the countess.
Prince Sallared is known in
Persia as the "Mad Prince," and
his extravagances are many. It
is said that he has "borrowed"
several millions from the countess, who hopes to recoup herself
when she becomes queen.
Of course, if Countess Cler-
mont-Tonneur's ambition is fulfilled, that is if she succeeds in
planting the "Mad Prince" on
the throne in some form or other,
and if Sallared makes her his
queen, that would mean great
progress in Persia, for if the
king is satisfied with one wife
his subjects must be. But it is
well known that Sallared had a
a considerable harem before he
met the countess and among his
many wives were many whose
claims antedate those of the
grass-widow of the champagne
maker.
