LOOKING FORWARD
A PLEASANT   PROSPECT
The eyes of thousands are turned to the Omineca district.
Many who are dissatisfied with their environment and prospects
are looking towards this new country for opportunities to better
their condition. Many whose energies can find no sufficient outlet in older communities have fixed their attention on this district.
And Omineca has room for them all. To the man of energy and
ability this country has golden rewards to offer, and none such
need fear to cast in his lot with the pioneers of "The Last Great
West."
; The myriad opportunities of the Omineca district cannot be detailed in the brief space of a newspaper article, but those who seek
enlightenment as to the  resources of the country will find sug-

AROUND HAZELTON
THE HUIJ OF OMINECA
When the pioneer fur traders adventured into the Northern Interior they established posts at the confluence of two important
rivers, the Skeena and the Haguelget (Bulkley.) As the
distributing point for a large area of tributary country, Hazelton,
as the place was named, attained a modest prominence, and, at
times, considerable prosperity. The discovery and exploitation of
the Omineca placers, the Klondike rush and the construction of
the Yukon telegraph system, all brought increased business to the
town, while of late years the r pid settlement of the agricultural
lands of the district and the d -velopment of nearby mines have
brought ever-increasing prosperity to the business men of the place.
The railroad, though it brings to life the varied industries of a
a country of great potentialities, gives but little promise for the
future of the present town of Hazelton, as exigencies of   railroad

hence.
In 1921 the new Hazelton will be a radial point from which
railways will tap the agricultural, mineral and coal lands of the
upper Skeena; the quartz, placsr and coal mines of the Omineca
and its tributaries, and probably the vast and rich areas of the
upper Peace river.
From the farms and ranches of the district,   the cities,   mines,

canneries and mills of the north Pacific, Alaska, and Yukon will be
supplied with meat, dairy products, fruit and practically all other
products of the farm. This market, with the cities and mining
camps of the district itself, will consume and pay good prices for
everything the farmers can supply, and thousands will live in comfort on thrifty farms  where virgin land is now awaiting the plow.
From the mines of Nine-mile camp, Hudson Bay mountain,
Telkwa river, the Babines, and other camps yet to be discovered,
railway spurs will bring silver-lead ores to the smelters of the district, while the payrolls and dividends of mines and smelters support thriving towns and assist in the upbuilding of two cities.
The new Hazelton will be the chief city of Omineca electoral
district, with a population numbered by thousands; with handsome
public buildings and business blocks, theaters, churches and school;;
with waterworks and electric lights and with all the means of
instruction, amusement and recreation demanded by the modern
city-dweller.
None of those who are bending their energies to the task of
developing this district will say these predictions are over-sanguine.
To the seeker for opportunity they may give food for thought.
As the views we are able to
print will show, the northern and
central interior of British Columbia is a country with greatly
diversified scenery, giving views
of alpine grandeur or of pastoral
simplicity. From +J_e level flats
and benches of the lower valleys
to the rolling . > .;.Js and grassy
ies  i j
or timbered i'ootums, with  their
background of majestic moun-
tains, all is pleasing to the eye
that can see, not merely the present aspect of the country, but
also the immense possibilities the
future holds for a district so
favored.
The trip by steamer from
Prince Rupert to Hazelton will
prove most enjoyable to all who
can appreciate beautiful scenery,
while it will give the newcomer
an insight into modern methods
of railway construction, the line
of the Grand Trunk Pacific being
seldom out of sight from the
steamer between Prince Rupert
and the Bulkley river.
The views on this page give a
a very fair idea of the characteristics of the country in the
vicinity of Hazelton, showing the
river Skeena, picturesque Rocher
de Boule mountain, a typical valley view, haying scenes, and one
of the railway construction
camps.
FARM NEAR HAZELTON
engineering compel the building of the road on the opposite side
of the Bulkley river. A great and busy population is beginning to
occupy the district, which was formerly the habitat of a scattered
handful of trappers and placer miners, and an important town on
the railway line will replace Hazelton, and will be the heir to all
its advantages.
The   valley   of   the  Skeena  reaches its   greatest   width    at
Hazelton, and may be called from twelve to fifteen   miles   across

from a point twelve miles up the river to a point twenty miles
down river. This area is forested in the main, varying from a
growth of small poplars to spruce and cedar large enough to be cut
into lumber. There is also considerable good land on each side
of the Bulkley river near its mouth.
At the junction point of the two rivers the elevation is shown
to be slightly above 700 feet and the banks rise on either side in a
series of terraces or benches. The area of land in itself is enough
to support a good sized population.
The other great resource of the district is mining, which is
attracting attention almost to the exclusion of everything else.
Until the middle of July it will not be three years since the first
mineral discoveries were made in the Hazelton camp. In that
short space of time discoveries and developments have been sufficient to indicate a permanent camp of great importance. At the
same time, those who are most familiar with the district and best
qualified to judge of its future, are confident that other discoveries
in the near future will add greatly to the value of the camp as a
mineral-producing district. Most of the mineralized area is
covered with earth and vegetation, making prospecting difficult and
and slow. In addition there is a large country within ten miles of
Hazelton that has never been prospected at all.
The high grade of the ore makes it possible for the properties
to be worked without the expenditure of any very large amount of

capital and there is every indication of the leasing system being
largely in use whereby much of
the profit in the ore is kept ;>t
liuinc instead of being drained
away to outside owners.
The development of mining industry involves the establishment
of smelting plants for treating the
me and it is natural to expect
these to be built where ores, fuel
and flux can be cheapest assembled. There is every reason to
believe that the reduction of the
ores of the district will, in the
near future, prove the basis of a
large industry which will add considerably to the importance of the
new Hazelton.
A Busy  Town
One may look far and wide before finding a place of Hazelton's
size where the amount of business transacted will compare with
that of this town, As a glance
over the advertisements in the
Herald will show, every line of
business is well represented here.
The business and professional
men of the town are enterprising
and up-to-date, to which fact,
again, our advertising columns
will bear witness. For the benefit of new readers we here print
a few notes on the business enterprises of the town, as nearly as
possible in the order of their establishment here:���
A Pioneer Firm
In 1870 the firm of R. Cunningham & Son, Ltd., which has its
headquarters at Port Essington,
established a store in Hazelton,
and ever since that time has enjoyed a good share of the trade
of the Northern Interior. For
fifteen years Major C. F. Morison
has been in charge here, and
there is no more popular merchant
in the district.
The Ancient H. B. Co.
For over a quarter of a century
the Hudson's Bay Company has
maintained a post in Hazelton.
Its business here has kept pace
with the growth of the district,
and it is probable thai the volume
of business transacted at this
branch will compare favorably
with that shown by any of the
H. B. C. stores outside the large
cities. John C. Boyd is the local
manager, and although his company is old in years, there is
nothing out of date about the
business of the Hazelton store.
Sargent's Big Store
One of the most successful
merchants of the Northern Interior is R. S. Sargent, whose
long residence in this part of the
Province and experience in business have enabled him to build
up a large general merchandise
business, which extends throughout the entire Omineca district.
"Everything for Rancher, Miner
and  Prospector," is  his motto,
and his stock is large and complete. He has recently completed
a large store at Telkwa. where
the wants of his many Bulkley
Valley customers will be supplied.
Omineca Hotel
This well - known bouse, of
which J. C. K. Seals' is proprietor,
has always bten one of the most
popular stopping-places in the Interior. The large increase in
business of the last few years has
rendered large additions and improvements necessary in order to
provide accommodation for
guests, and Mr. Sealy is now
prepared to give the best of everything to all who make the Omineca their headquarters.
A   Growing  Business
An establishment which has
kept pace with the growth of the
district is that uf W. J. Larkworthy, the Hazelton general
merchant, who has just completed another addition to his
local store, and has acquired a
store in Sealey, where he is already doing a splendid business.
His aim is to supply all the merchandise wants of the people of
this vicinity.
Reslty and Insurance
An enviable reputation has been
made by E. H. Hicks-Beach, one
of the pioneers of Ha:-,- lton, as a
real estate and insurance broker.
Some of the largest land deals of
the last few years have been negotiated by him, and, as his advertisement on the twentieth
page shows, he has a number of
good things still on his list.
Ingineca  Hotel
Many years of successful experience in the hotel business are
evidenced by the system which
has made the Ingineca hotel a
favorite with the travelling public. McLonell & McAfee, the
proprietors, have spared no expense in making provision for
their patrons, and they succeed
in catering satisfactorily to a
large proportion of the many
people who have occasion to stop
over in Hazelton.
The Quality Store
The   name   chosen   by  C.   V.
Smith for his general store is not
I belied   by   the  character  of  his
I stock,    which   in   quality   and
variety will  not  lie easily surpassed,   Mr. Smith is a capable
I man of business, who has made
| a study of I he requirements of
the people  of the Interior.     His
up-to-date methods are bringing
him increased trade.
Sash and Door Factory
E. C. Stephenson, senior partner in the firm of Stephenson &
Crum, is now in Vancouver arranging for the immediate shipment to Hazelton for a complete
equipment of a sash and door
factory and planing mill, which
will be installed as early in the
season as possible. The lack of
this machinery has proved a
serious handicap to builders, and
the inauguration of the new
enterprise will prove a boon to
everyone interested in the erections of stores and dwellings.
A Busy Concern
The firm of Aldous, Robertson
& Murray is composed of energetic men who have good business ability and a knowledge of
the brokerage business which is
bringing them into prominence in
the district. They have many
good investments on their list,
and can interest anyone who desires information as to the opportunities for the employment of
capital in New British Columbia.
In addition to their real estate
and insurance business, they have
the Hazelton agencies fora number of the most prominent firms
manufacturing vehicles, farm
machinery, harness, saddles, etc.,
and will shortly have on display
an interesting stock of such agricultural necessities.
An Up-to-Date Druggist
A year ago J. Mason Adams
opened the first drug store in
Hazelton, meeting one of the
most pressing requirements of the
town. The excellence of his
stock and service has brought
him an excellent business. He
will continue to carry the best of
everything in his line.
Hazelton B&kery
This concern has succeeded in
pleasing the people of Hazelton
in the matter of bread, cakes and
pastry, and has built up a flourishing business.

Experienced Land Men
An intimate knowledge of every
part of the Northern Interior,
and an appreciation of its possibilities are the foundations on
which Harvey & McKinnon are
building a large mining and real
estate busin- ss. They specialize
in mining property.
B. C. I>r< kerage Company
This firm, which deals in mining property, agricultural and
townsite lands and lots, is well
posted on the townsite situation
along the G. T. P. It has on its
lists many land buys which
should prove attractive to investors or settlers.
The Qalena Cluh
A good example of the success
which attends application to business in Hazelton is afforded by
the progress of the firm of McDougall & Tate. These young
men started in business two years
ago, when they opened a small
lunch place in the center of the
town. Good business methods
brought them so much patronage
that their premises soon required
enlargement. A short time ago
they sold out, realizing a profit.
They are now opening the Galena
Club, with bowling alleys, poo!
tables, etc., confident of success.
Passengers and Freight
In view of the heavy traffic
which is to be looked for this
year, the Interior Forwarding &
Express Co., which covers the
country tributary to Hazelton, has
largely increased its outfit, and
will be prepared to handle ar. immense amount of business. The
stages running from Hazelton to
Bulkley valley points will make
semi-weekly trips after June 1,
reaching Aldermere and Telkwa
mi the second day. In this connection an express service will be
maintained. E. E. Charleson,
manager of the company, states
that four six-horse freight teams
will be on the road as soon as the
outfits can be brought from Prince
Rupert, where they have been
lying for a year awaiting transportation up the river. By June
15 the company will have 150
pack animals in commission. The
mule train will leave Quesnel on
May 20 with freight for Fort
George, and will then be used in
packing supplies for construction
camps in the Bulkley. One horse
train will be kept on the Nine
Mile trail, packing supplies to the
mines, while the others will be
used i'or miscellaneous packing.
A Successful iinterprise
The Interior Lumber Company,
starting its mill at the beginning
! of the year, has made a splendid
record,  its cut to date approximating 1,000,000 feet.   The com-
; pany is composed entirely of local
I men, and employs twenty men.
! Since this mill started business
! there  has  been   no scarcity   of
lumber,   for   the   first   time   in
Hazelton's history.
Carter & Willis
This firm has an establishment
well equipped for all kinds of
wagon making, blacksmith work,
horseshoeing, etc. They turn out
good work.
A New Store
A commodious building is being
erected next to the Herald office
for the accommodation of the big
stock of men's and women's furnishings which is being brought
up the river for McArthur's Emporium. This new concern will
make a strong bid for the clothing and millinery trade of the
town and district.
A Postcard Emporium
The Omineca Photographic
Company has opened a shop
across the street from the Herald,
where residents and visitors may
obtain excellent photo postcards
and views of scenery and features
of the district.
Stylish Wear for Men
Two young business men who
are well and favorably known in
this part of I-!. C. are the members of the firm of Rock & Noel,
which will offer to the men of
Omineca the most select styles
in clothing, furnishings, etc.
Their new store on Omineca street
is ready for the display of the
large stock which will arrive on
the early boats.
The Meat Market
P. Burns & Co., known throughout Western Canada as the greatest purveyors of meat, have a
depot in Hazelton, supplied from
their abattoir at Mission Point,
where many hundreds of cattle
will be killed during this season
to supply the needs of the railway construction camps and the
town.
THE PIONEER INDUSTRY
The fur trade was the attraction which brought the first white
men into the Northern Interior,
and it was, for many years, the
chief industry of the district, its
proceeds purchasing for the aboriginal inhabitants the necessities
and some of the comforts of life.
The trade in furs is now of minor
importance in Omineca, although
there has been practically no
diminution of the value of the
annual shipments, the increase in
the price of furs having been
.sufficient to offset the decreased
production. The decline in the
quantity of furs handled here is
due not so much to the depletion
of the hunting grounds of the
Indians as to the growing disinclination of the natives for the
hardships of the trapping trails.
The Siwashes, who were formerly compelled to depend entirely on game, fish and furs for
their livelihood, have of late years
exhibited a growing disinclination for the "simple life," preferring the easier and more remunerative occupations of civilized life. Since the beginning of
the first railroad surveys in this
district the Indiaps have found it
easy to earn sufficient money to
supply all their needs, and there
are few in the vicinity of Hazelton who have not a reserve of
cash. Contrary to the generally
accepted idea, many Indians are
able to save money, and while
they cannot resist purchasing
anything that strikes their fancy,
however incongruous, they are
shrewd bargainers, and are seldom taken in. The Indians of the
Skeena live in comfortable houses,
wear good clothing, and live battel than the lower classes of
many a civilized country. The
principal occupations by which
they gain a livelihood are fishing,
woodcutting, clearing land, farm
work and freighting. For the
transportation of freight by
various means they annually receive many thousands of dollars.
In summer this work is accomplished by means of canoes, pack
horses and wagons, many of the
natives owning large outfits,
which are kept busy during the
summer season. In winter, except where roads allow the use of
sleighs, the more primitive
method of freighting by dog toboggans is resorted to. In these
occupations the Indians receive
the same wages as are paid to
white men similarly engaged, the
rate of pay having increased in
the last five years to a point
which puts the native on the
same footing as the white man.
Telkwa's Boosters
The growing town of Telkwa is
attracting considerable attention
amongst those who have their
their eyes turned on New British
Columbia, and bids fair to cut a
considerable figure in the future
development id' an important
part of the district. Gale & Williams, the pioneer real estate and
mining brokers of the Bulkley
Valley, are located at Telkwa, .
and have taken a notable part in
the promotion of the towm. Their
offerings to investors will repay
examination.

THE   HOSPITAL
i>
L
A  POPULAR  INSTITUTION
One of the best hospitals in the
interior of the Province is located
in an ideal situation one mile from
Hazelton. This institution, in
which the people of Omineca take
considerable interest, receives
generous support. The fact that
the accounts showed a balance on
the right side after meeting all
liabilities of last year, says much
for the business ability of the
directorate.
The report for 1910 shows that
225 patients were admitted, an
increase of practically fifty per
cent over 1009. The proportion
of patients cured and improved
was highly satisfactory.
Durin��' the year the sum of
S:?427 was expended in extending
the accommodation of the building, the management succeeding
in meeting the obligations of the
year, notwithstanding this large
extra expenditure. For additional
accommodation it will be necessary to expend the sum of $3000
during 1911. This amount, it is
hoped, will be provided by the
expected grant of $2000 from the
Provincial government, augmented by voluntary contributions.
The receipts for the year were
$13,828 and the balance on hand
at the end of the year was $335.
The staff of the hospital is as
follows: Dr. H. C. Wrinch, medical superintendent; Dr. A. H.
Wallace, assistant physician; Miss
Helen Bone, lady superintendent;
Miss Marie Broughton, matron;
Miss Jessie McDonald, Miss Gertrude Martin, Miss Laura Moore,
nurses in training.
Will Work the Coronado
R. J. McDonell and John Hal-
ley, owners of the Coronado
group on Hudson Bay mountain,
at the south end of the camp,
propose to start permanent development work this year. Assessment and a little prospecting will
keep Halley busy until fall, and
then, Mr. McDonell states, a crew
of six men will be put to work
on the Coronado, and this force
will not be decreased until steel
is laid to Telkwa so that shipments can be made from a mine
fully able to stand the strain.
Points of Interest
Visitors who have the time to
spare should not neglect the
opportunity to visit some of the
prospects close to town and see
for themselves what there is in
Hazelton's mineral claims. The
Erie, American Boy, Silver Standard and Canadian King groups
are all within easy reaching distance, and the men in charge are
always willing to show visitors
about. While the Erie is not
working now there will be a gang
there within a few days after
navigation opens.
A Good Opening
A man  possessing the  recipe
; for charming the succulent egg
I from   the   reluctant   hen   could
I make a little fortune by bringing
some well trained chickens here.
| The local demand is far in excess
I of the available supply.    During
I the early part of the winter eggs
I found a ready sale at a dollar a
dozen. The supply has proved so
inadequate that  the   price   has
risen to $2, at which figure the
hen fruit is snapped up as soon as
I it appears on the market.
c
CAMP GEOLOGY
i>
II ASSURES   ORE   DEPTH it
Many people, both those with a
knowledge of mining and those
without, often ask what evidences
there are of permanency in the
Hazelton camp. For the benefit
of such it might be said that the
altered sandstones in which the
ores have so far been found,
generally speaking, show in high
cliffs on the north side of Nine
Mile mountain, and on the north
sides of several peaks of the Kispiox mountains across the Skeena
west of Hazelton, to an estimated
height of 1500 feet without any
sign of older igneous rocks showing beneath. When viewed from
a distance in early morning with
the sun shining directly on the
cliffs, during that part of the
year when the sun rises almost
in the north the stratified structure of the sedimentary rocks is
shown in the plainest possible
manner.
The ores of this camp without
exception have been found in
close proximity to eruptive areas
of porphyry granite which have
been thrust up through the sedimentary rocks. It is most natural
to suppose that the cracks caused
by the upheaval of the eruptive
rocks, and which subsequently
became mineral bearing veins,
were caused by forces operating
from beneath. Consequently the
cracks must extend in some shape
or another from the bottom to
the top of the sedimentary formation.
This is no attempt at a techni-
; cal explanation of the formation
of our ore bodies, but it is the
explanation that is at the bottom
of the faith in the men who are j
bringing the  prospects of   this
camp to a producing stage.
Fifteen   hundred   feet is   not
much depth, but it is enough for:
the present generation, and the;
next can  do  its  own worrying. '
However, it is about as deep as
mining has as yet been carried on
anywhere in the province.  Again
there is not any reason for supposing that the thickness of the
sedimentary  rocks is limited  to
that shown up in the cliffs caused
by the erosive action of glaciers.
A Prosperous Firm
In the last half-dozen years
many hundreds of visitors to the
Bulkley Valley, stopping at Aider-
mere, have put up at the hotel so
successfullyconducted by Brouj: -
ton & McNeil, and their unai ���
mous praise of the accommodatio i
received has made for the hous *
a most enviable reputation. Lem
Broughton and Jack McNeil,
from small beginnings, have
extended their business until they
have taken rank with the most
prominent business concerns of
the district. They have hotels
and stores at Aldermere and
Chicken Lake, with their own
gardens and cattle ranches, enabling them to supply the wants of
a large part of the population of
the valley.
A Correction
On page 9, which was in the
I first section going to press, an
error was overlooked. It should
have stated that the values of
Bear river ores are for gold only,
silver and lead values being in
the same ratio as in Hazelton
camp. Total values from surface
ores of several properties run
from $65 to $85 a ton.

Our Special
Edition
In this issue the Herald makes
its second essay in the line of
special editions. What measure
of success we have achieved is for
our readers to judge.
In    the   preparation    of   this
The present pioneer
i population cannot be considered
; representative of the people who
will fill the cities,camps and farms
of the district in the fulness of
its prosperity, and it is evident
that the future of the Northern
Interior depends to a great extent
upon the character of the population attracted here during the
next three or four years. In this
matter the country has so far
been very fortunate, and there is
every reason to believe that it
will be equally so in time to come.
Opportunity is written large
over the entire Omineca district,
but it demands something of the
newcomer in return for its offer
of wealth and comfort. The
three great requisites are ambition, intelligence antl energy.
Given   these,   with   a   normally

The highways and bridges of
Omineca district have received
considerable attention from the
Provincial Department of Works
in the last two or three years.
Nearly a quarter of a million
dollars has been expended on
these public works, with the result that the roads through the
valleys are becoming better every
year, and are being extended to
accommodate settlers in the
newer and most distant portions
of the district. This season there
is a large appropriation for roads,
trails and bridges. The greatest
amount of work will be done on
the main trunk road through the
Bulkley Valley, which will form

With pleasure we take this opportunity to extend our acknowledgements and thanks to the
people of Hazelton and the Omineca district, whose generous
support has been an
and encouragement to
efforts to publish a newspaper
which should make known a district the potentialities of which
loom the greater as we gain further knowledge of them!
Believing that the truth about
the Northern Interior is good
enough, we have endeavored, in
presenting the advantages of the
country to our readers, to avoid
exaggeration. For our adherence
to this policy we have our justification and reward in the respect
of our patrons and in the reputation for reliability which the
Herald has gained. This reputation it is our hope to retain.
The Herald will continue to devote its columns to the advancement of the best interests of the
Omineca district. As required,
additions will be made to our already excellent staff and plant,
and the paper will keep pace with
the growth of the district. Nor
will our ambition rest until the
Herald is recognized as the best
weekly newspaper in British
Columbia.
The Men We
Need
That "the people make the
country" is an axiom the truth of
which has been proved over and
over again. To no land does this
apply with more force than to
New British Columbia. Here we
have a dormant country of wonderful possibilities, just awakening to life, with a steel highway
beginning to thread its way
through fertile valleys lying be-

us in our i Hazelton is afforded by the statis- mines
tics  of  the local post office  for -
1910, which show a remarkable	
increase in the volume of business
over that of 1909. In the last
year the number of letters received here has averaged over
10,000 a month, while the letters
despatched numbered over 7,000
monthly. During the year the
large sum of $105,350 was received and paid out on postal
money orders, besides a considerable sum in postal notes; and
this notwithstanding the establishment here of a branch of the
Union Bank, which transacts a
great deal of business formerly
handled by the post office. Dur-
the year 280cS registered letters
were received and 3300 sent out
from the local office, while the
stamp sales agregated $1900. The

might be regarded as in the

MAKING  GOOD
MINING AND PROSPECTING
-?
"��D
A
Development is bringing fulfilment of
first promises and many rich
camps are being proven.
OF ALL the latent wealth in
the district surrounding Hazelton that contained in the ores
of precious and useful metals is
attracting the most attention at
the present time. Metal mining
will he the first industry to be
brought to a producing stage and
supply the country with a revenue derived from its own
resources.
With the first announcement of
the contruction of the G. T. P.
through the province a few hardy
prospectors came north and ever
since rapid and steady progress
has been made in the discovery
and development of lode mines.
At first the country about Telkwa
river was prospected almost exclusively on account of the likelihood of the railway going that
way to the Pacific coast and it
was only when the route was
definitely settled that the territory about here offered any
inducements whatever.
Omineca Mining Division embraces an area nearly as large as
the state of Washington, our
nearest neighbor across the line,
and yet is only a comparatively
small patch on the map of British
Columbia.
All that is known authoritively
of the geology of the district is
embraced in the published reports of the Dominion Government Geologist and the Provincial
Mineralogist. Briefly summarized these reports show that the
main body of the rocks composing
the surface are of sedimentary or
gin, chiefly sandstone and slate
of Jurassic or Triassic period.
Eruptive rocks have been thrust
through the sedimentaries, varying in character in different
localities. The lines of contact
between the sedimentary rocks
and the later intrusives are considered highly favorable for the
existence of ore bodies commercially valuable. These contacts
are found everywhere in the district that prospectors have
penetrated.
Generalizations on the char-
actor of the ores, values, etc.,
would be premature at this time
as so little is known of the district as a whole. It can be said
however, that the values are
abnormally high, for ores of the
same character.
Skeena River -- Hazelton to
Kitselas
According to the conception of
the geologists the country between Hazelton and sea was once
a great plain through which the
Coast Range of mountains was
upheaved. Although the eastern boundary of the Coast Range
proper is generally considered to
be somewhere about Kitselas,
that point by no means marks
the end of the disturbance as the
distinctly mountainous nature of
the whole eighty mile stretch of
country shows. Every range of
mountains marks a point where
the sedimentaries have been
pierced by eruptive rocks. Prospectors have devoted but little
time to this region but already a
number of very promising groups
of claims have been staked  hav
ing all the surface indications of
great properties. With a railway practically built and the
success of the pioneer prospectors
already known, this stretch of
country will come forward
rapidly.
Hazelton Camp
Hazelton as a mining camp is
not yet three years old but already much has been done toward proving its actual worth;
and from the showings of surface ores in different localities
about the town, it has become
the leading attraction of the
province.
Ever since the first claim was
staked on Nine Mile mountain,
in July, 1S08, there has been
steady progress toward getting
the most promising showings in
a position to become producers
when rail transportation shall
become available.
A   geologist   sent out by the
Dominion government describes
the mountain as being composed
of sandstone, altered to a point
approaching quartzite  in   many
places.    At one point there is a
relatively important eruptive boss
'of porphyry-granite from which
radiate in many directions  dikes
or   prongs    from    the    central
eruptive area.     Some forty or
! fifty claims were staked around
the eruptive area of which,   perhaps,   the   best   known   is   the
Silver Cup group of four  claims
which has been under continuous
| development    for    upward     of
! fifteen months.     The main vein
| on this property is directly traceable through the  length  of two
claims.   A glacier, or other cause,
| hollowed   out   the   side  of  the
mountain into a basin some 1200
jor more feet deep, through which
the vein runs from top to bottom.
Four tunnels have been started
to develop this vein.     No. 1 was
j driven in  200   feet   reaching   a
dept of 130 feet  below  the surface at the inner end.    No.   2 is
also driven on the vein being in
86 feet. No. 3 was started in the
wall and driven toward the vein
, at an  angle   as   the  vein   was
covered by a slide, and was with-
| in a few feet of the ore when  a
succession of snow slides  killed
I the superintendent and compelled
la suspension of the work for the
itime being.    Another tunnel was
! started about February 1, on the
! Duke claim of the same group
i which ran   into  ore   in  a short
'time.   This ore is reported to be
j 22 inches wide at present writing
and equal or better in appearance
than anything taken off the hill.
Fourteen and a half tons of ore
shipped from No. 2 tunnel on the
Silver Cup yielded $932 net after
deducting   freight   from  Prince
i Rupert    to  Trail   and   smelter
! charges at Trail.     All who have

: Another important group is the
| Sunrise, consisting of four claims,
, on which a surface discovery of
! thirty inches of solid steel galena
; was responsible for a sale on  a
| basis of $60,000.     The locators
have been settled with in full and
a company  is now in process of
formation to take over the property and develop it.
The Lead King is a group of
seven claims owned by a local
stock company on which considerable work has been done
with good results, according to
reports from the management.
On most of the other claims
assessment work merely has
been performed. There are
good showings on the Silver Pick
group and several others.
On the southwest slope of
Nine Mile the American Boy
group of eight claims is being
opened up by the locators, surface stripping amounting to j
1800 feet has been done and a
shaft put down about 25 feet.
So far as proven the ore is continuous and varies in width from
one to five feet.
On Four Mile hill the Erie has
the largest ore body exposed that
has been uncovered in the camp.
A long surface trench shows the
ore to be upwards of ten feet
wide and how much wider no one
knows as the ore is still passing
under the surface covering of
earth on the lower side. Nearly
all the money spent in opening
up this claim was for surface
stripping and the owner expects
to spend several thousand dollars
more before planning any work
of a permanent nature.
The Dyer-Stephenson group of
five claims has been recently
turned over to a stock company,
the Babine Mining Company by
name, of Vancouver. Work has
been carried on all winter driving a tunnel which is in about
125 feet. In this distance the
tunnel has gained less than ten
feet of depth so cannot be seriously regarded as being part of
any permanent scheme of development. However, there are
several places where good ore
crops on the surface and it is
understood that surface water
compelled a change of plans after-
winter set in.

Jj MINING   AND
PROSPECTING
[Continued from page seven.]
have showings of good ore of
which the Iron Mask is one of
the most favorably considered.
Owing to the depth of earth
covering the rock prospecting is
a matter of time and considerable
money. This hill, like Nine
Mile, has an area of eruptive
rock showing but it is small and
relatively unimportant.
On Glen mountain, a hill lying
on the west side of Nine Mile,
two groups of claims, the Silver
Standard and Canadian King,
have been under development all
winter with the net result that
about enough ore has been taken
out to pay for the winter's expenses. Two shafts have been
sunk, one sixteen feet and another nearly forty and two crosscut tunnels have been driven.
One of these reached the ore in
about thirty feet when the tunnel was turned into the ore. At
present there is a full face of
medium grade ore with the full
width of ore unknown. The
other tunnel has not yet reached
the ore.
On Rocher de Boule mountain
at a distance some eight or ten
miles southeast of town two
groups of claims, located late last
fall, have been bonded and work
is to commence as soon as
weather conditions will permit.
One vein is on a contact between
granitic rock and sedimentary.
In many places the ore has been
eroded and the walls left standing, sometimes reaching a height
of forty feet, giving the effect of
a miniature canyon. This vein
is from three to eight feet wide.
The other group is on a copper
showing and a surface of ore exposed ten feet by four feet wide
was solid chalcopyrite assaying
over thirty-one per cent in the
red metal with subsidiary values
in gold and silver.
Much the larger part of the
properties specifically mentioned
above were either located in 1910
or first found to be valuable from
last year's work. The number
of prospectors working in this
vicinity will be largely increased
from the opening of the season
and there is as much reason for
expecting further discoveries as
a result of their efforts as there
was any year in the past.
Values contained in the ores of
the Hazelton district, as shown
by dozens of assay certificates,
are from two and a half to three
ounces of silver to the unit of
percentage of the lead in the
ore. Grey copper occurs to some
extent in nearly all the ores of
the district and, as near as can
he judged without going into the
subject deeply, containing 100
ounces of silver to the unit of
percentage of copper. Other
high grade silver minerals occur
which add materially to the total
value of the ore.
Galena ores carry about one
dollar a ton in gold and the copper is so far a negligible quantity
except where it occurs by itself.
Babine Mountains
The name Babine mountains
applies to the range of mountains
lying between Babine lake and
the Bulkley river, one hundred
miles more or less in length.
Early in the history of the development of this district rich
silver bearing ore was found in
the southern part of the range
and the most developed property
in the whole mining division is
located in these mountains, about
45 miles from Hazelton and eighteen miles from the Bulkley
valley   towns. Here James
Cronin, perhaps the best known
mining operator in the province,
at the head of the  Babine  Bonanza Mining & Development Co.,
has developed the  Dibble group ;
to a point where a mine is assured, some five or 600  feet of under ground work being done, and
the property has remained closed
for nearly a year waiting for rail
transportation to reduce the cost
of supplies   and also save the
large   amount of money  which
would be kept out of productive
employment while waiting transportation for their ores.     In the
same locality   with   the Dibble
group are a  number of groups j
with high grade ore and a small:
amount of development already -
done,   J. McKendrick  having a j
sixty foot   tunnel   driven  on  a
showing of about five feet of ore
that carries as   much   as   1,000
ounces of silver to the ton.
At the extreme southern end
of the range near the head of
Babine lake there was considerable stir last year over discoveries
of native silver and free gold of
which it is predicted by those
interested that more will be
this year.
Toward the northern end of
range, and about eighteen or
twenty miles from Hazelton
several properties of undoubted
merit were staked in the summer
of 1910. The bodies are there
and values as well. An arsenical I
iron ore, sometimes by itself and i
again associated with galena
carrying values up to $25.00 a I
ton. The most developed prop-
perty at this end of the range is
the Buckskin, owned by outside
capital, represented locally by
Frank Martin. A tunnel has;
been driven upwards of fifty
feet showing in the face two
feet of ore worth $25 a ton, all in
gold. This is a district of which
much is expected this year.
With the exception of a few
small localities the range has
been either run over hurriedly or
else not penetrated at all by
white men.
Tacla Lake
Beyond the fact that the Tacla
lake country is mineralized and
that a number of claims are being held from year to year by
the locators who penetrated that
far, little is known. The ores
are copper with values in gold
and silver. The future of this
district is for another day than
the one just dawning over the
country traversed by the main
line of the G. T. P.
The Telkwa Country
At the head of the various
creeks flowing into and forming
the Telkwa river are the largest
showings of copper ore known to
exist in the district and also the
greatest showing of silver lead
ore. One company, owning forty
claims has spent upwards of
$75,000 in development and now
has its property under crown
grant, so nothing more may be
expected to be done until rails
are laid as far as Telkwa river.
Much of the ore of this district
is high grade, sufficiently so to
stand shipment to outside
smelting points. There is a large
stretch of mineralized country
and onee the relief comes that
transportation    by      rail,   and
nothing else can afford, its effect
will be immediately seen in a
rush of development on many
properties which are of necessity
now lying practically dormant.
Hudson Bay Mountain
One of the earliest places
where high grade mineral was
discovered was on Hudson Bay
mountain, some of the claims
dating back seventeen years.
Lying along the east side of
Bulkley river for about twenty
miles and forming the watershed
of that and the Copper rivers, it
is practically the geographical
center of the known part of
Omineca Mining Division.
Silver lead ores predominate
and many fine properties are in
course of development to a shipping age. The first shipment of
ore from the northern Interior
came from this mountain and the
values of $106 a ton for this ore
is by no means as high as could
have been obtained by careful
sorting. Properties were taken
under bond last year to the extent of $135,000 and on these
considerable work wil1 be done
this year.
Almost exclusively the claims
are still in the hands of the
locators. Wherever capital has
become interested and anything
more than annual assessment
work attempted the showing has
been so good that only depth is
needed to turn the prospects
into big mines.
Particular mention might be
made of the camp at the head of
Pine creek, which empties into
the Telkwa. There are some
forty claims located in a solid
block, between ten and twelve
miles from the railway line.
The Coronado group, the best
known, perhaps, has over three
hundred tons of good ore on the
clump. These claims were located
five or six years ago and in many
places respectable ore dumps are
being built up by the performance of assessment work.

A Loss to the Community
Kathryn, wife of Roy 0. Miller
of Hazelton, died at the Hazelton
hospital Wednesday morning,
pleurisy, with complications being the cause.
Mrs. Miller was near her twenty-fifth birthday and was a native
of New York state, but her whole
life, till she joined Mr. Miller in
Hazelton nearly two years ago,
had been spent in Oakland, California.
A winning manner and cheery
disposition, coupled with sterling
good qualities, combined to make
her highly regarded by all who
knew her. It was with the deepest regret that the townspeople
learned of her demise.
The funeral was held Friday
morning, requiem high mass being celebrated by Father Godfrey,
in the Town Hall. Interment
was in the cemetery on the hill.
Besides the sorrowing husband
there are left a mother, two sisters, one being Mrs. H. J. Nie-
haus, the wife of the well known
rancher of Bulkley valley, and
two brothers to mourn her loss.
Mr. Miller has for two years
been a valued member of the
Herald staff.

Vancouver, B. C.
Premier McBride said recently
that it was altogether probable
that British Columbia had greater
coal   measures  than   any   other
country   in   the   world.     When j
exploration   is   far   enough   ad-,
vanced for an estimate to be made
it  will be  found  that  Omineca!
district has its full share of the:
province's wealth of black  dia-j
monds.
In the very early days of the I
district the coal fields about the.
mouth   of   Telkwa   river   were!
staked, and 65 square miles are
now   held  by  three  companies. I
The G. T. P.  has acquired  the
holdings of one of the corporations, and has been for two years
carrying on development to have
at hand a supply of fuel against
the time when rails will reach the j
Telkwa.    On the property of the
Cassiar Coal Co. three seams aggregate 40 feet of coal and analysis shows one of them to be of
coking quality.
The Prince Rupert Coal Fields,
Ltd., with two areas, one near
the mouth of the Morice river
and the other at the head of the j
same river, on the divide between
it and the Telkwa, carried on
operations last summer with two
diamond drills, and at the close
of the season the engineer announced the discovery of 22 feet
of workable coal out of a total of
28 feet over such an area that
the property might be reasonably
expected to produce fifty million
tons.
On Copper river one block of
75 square miles of coal lands is
held by a single ownership, and
development work of the last two
years has proved the existence of
two seams of high grade bituminous coal, between 5 and 7 feet
thick, in a large part of this area.
Other discoveries are reported on
Copper river, but reports of their
extent are lacking.
Groundhog mountain, 150 miles
above Hazelton on Skeena river,
counting distance by the meanderings of the stream, bids fair
to become in time one of the
great coal districts of the world.
Three different outfits or companies are represented there and
their combined holdings are about
120 square miles. The first locations were made six years ago
in the interest of men prominent
in the affairs of the Crows Nest
Pass Coal Co., and comprised sixteen sections.
Each year since then has seen
development work done, the B.
C. Anthracite Coal Co. of Vancouver being most conspicuous.
F. A. Jackson, the company's
representative, stated last fall
that thirty seams had been found,
the thickest being 10 feet. Coals
of different qualities, anthracite,
semi-anthracite and bituminous
were found. It is claimed to be
the only place on the Pacific Slope
showing true anthracite.
Practically every valley has a
showing of coal. On Driftwood
river, at the head of Tacla lake,
the streams flowing into Babine
lake, and on many tributaries of
the upper Skeet.a large seams of
coal have been reported by prospectors, but so far nothing has
been done toward their development, and in the main they are
still open for location.

Silver
Cup
Mines
Limited���Non-personal Liability
This stock is an  attractive investment.
The Company owns outright four full
claims, the Silver Cup, Silver Dollar,
Duchess and Duke, all of which are in
process of being Crown granted to the
company. The Silver Cup group was
the second to be located on Nine Mile
mountain.
The location vein of the Silver Cup
has been found on three claims and is
directly traceable through two of them.
Five tunnels have been driven varying
distances, number 1 being in 200 feet,
number 2 over 100 feet; number 3 is
within a few feet of the ore, being in
the footwall as the vein is covered by a
slide. Number 4 is just started, on ore.
In Nos. 1 and 2 there is good ore all
the way in.
On the Duke claim a tunnel is driven
112 feet, with ore averaging from one
to two feet wide all the way and assaying $136.21 in silver and lead.
A Test shipment made last fall of
14 1- t ons of ore from Silver Cup returned $934 after deducting freight
from Prince Rupert and treatment
charges, or an approximate gross value
of $87.50 per ton.
The main vein is exposed in a glacial
basin at a depth of over 1,000 feet.
Fifty per cent of gross value of the
ore'is demonstrated to be profit once
railway transportation is available.
The company is in good financial condition with enough money in the treasury to last a year, and with over 30 per
cent of entire capital still in the treasury.

An Athletic Association
The movement for the formation of an athletic association for
Hazelton has assumed definite
shape, and a meeting for organization will be held early in the
week. The best available grounds
have been secured, including the
Clark property. The land is very
conveniently located, and sufficient in extent for football, baseball, lacrosse, cricket and other
field and track sports. The advantage to the town of such an
organization as that proposed will
be readily apparent.
There will be a dance given in
the town hall on the evening of
the 26th of April, under the
auspices of the Triple Link Club,
jI.O.O.F., of Hazelton. All are
cordially invited to attend.
