Duncan Ross Addressed a Large Gathering in the Town Hall and Received a Splendid Reception-
Irresponsible Newspaper Censured---C. W. Peck on Reciprocity.
-An
i
Duncan Ross, the member-elect
for Comox-Atlin, was welcomed
by the citizens of Hazelton last
night when a very large and representative crowd gathered in
the hall. It was late when the
candidate arrived owing to the
difficulties the boats are having
on the river, but the people wanted to hear Mr. Ross and they
were present. The audience was
large and very attentive and appreciated to the fullest extent the
strong arguments put forth by
the speaker, and they could not
help but agree that the arguments of the opposition were
very weak and trifling. The disloyalty cry was shown to be most
ridiculous and the real meaning
of high protection as advocated
by the opposition was explained.
Mr. Ross delivered a masterful
address which was frequently
punctuated by applause from the
audience. On the platform with
the candidate was Mr. C. W.Peck,
of Prince Rupert, one of the
pioneer manufacturers in British
Columbia, who is supporting-
Reciprocity.
Mr. Geo. Swan acted as chairman and in his opening remarks
he extended an invitation to any
opposition speaker to take the
platform for thirty minutes after
Mr. Peck had spoken. Mr. Hicks-
Beach undertook to decline the
invitation on behalf of the anti-
reciprocity party and stated that
Mr. Clements authorized him to
extend a challenge to Mr. Ross to
meet him on the Hazelton platform at any date. In his address
Mr. Ross characterized this as a
cheap bluff. Mr. Clements knows
that when he gets here Mr. Ross
will be away addressing other
meetings that have been arranged for weeks. Mr. Clements is
running around after Mr. Ross
and at the same time taking good
care that he will not be in the
same town at the same time again.
It does not agree with his (Mr.
Clements) constitution.
C. W. Peck Speaks
Mr. C. W. Peck, of Prince
Rupert, in his remarks congratulated Hazelton upon having a man
of Mr. Ross' ability and integrity
in their midst to select as their
candidate. Mr. Ross has been a
frontiersman for many years, he
has been in Hazelton for the last
two years, and he knows the
needs of the frontier and is the
best fitted of all men to represent
this constituency in the House of
Commons. Mr. Peck is a manufacturer and a business man and
he is supporting reciprocity in
every way possible. He knows
that it is a good thing for the

country and this province in particular. The Conservatives have
from the beginning put up a campaign of howls. They howled in
the House because they wanted
to go the people on Reciprocity.
When Sir Wilfred called their
bluff they discovered they had
frogged out of turn. There is
nothing left but a howl, and on
Sept. 21st even that will be lost.
Sir Wilfred Laurier is the great
captain at the wheel who will
guide the ship of state safely
through these troublesome waters
(Applause).
Duncan Ross' Address
When Mr. Ross, the Reciprocity
candidate and the next member
for Comox-Atlin, arose to speak
he was greeted with warm applause and all through his address
he was given the closest attention. He expressed his pleasure
at being in Hazelton again and to
meet so many of his friends and
he was especially glad to see the
ladies present as they were particularly interested in reciprocity as
it affected the cost of living and
that was their particular branch
of life's work. Before touching
Reciprocity Mr. Ross said he just
wanted to clear up some personalities that had been indulged in
by an irresponsible paper in
Hazelton. He was surprised that
personalities should be indulged
iri as this question was large
enough to discuss without side
issues, and this was the only place
he had come in contact with it.
That irresponsible paper came
out with a head line "Asiatic
Candidate was Nominated " and
the article suggested that Mr.
Ross was a friend to the Asiatics.
"My statements on the Asiatic
question in the House will be
found on the pages of Hansard,"
said Mr. Ross, "I came to British
Columbia as a young man 23
years ago and I found then that
the chief obstacle in the way of
the young man was the Asiatic
population. I started in at once
to write and preach against the
Asiatics coming to Canada. I
was writing and preaching against the Oriental population long
before the Editor of the Inland
Colonist ever left the Orient.
Hut there is usually a reason for
these personal attacks, and of
course this case is no exception.
Before the campaign started I
was interviewed by a representative of Mr. Jones and told that
I could buy the Colonist $1000.
I knew the plant consisted of
only a brokendown press, broken
down type and I decided that
even with the brokendown editor
thrown in that the outfit was
worthless and so I did not buy.
Therefore Mr. Jones turns back
to the Conservatives and indulges
in personalities."
Reciprocity
This election was called for the
purpose of giving the people an
opportunity of deciding whether
they wanted close trade relations
with the United States or not.
So far as the opposition is concerned there is only one argument against the proposals, that
of disloyalty to Britian and the
certain annexation to the States.
This battle cry Mr. Ross showed
to be the most shallow and most
Continued on page three
All Hazelton has been experiencing the wild excitement of
vast wealth just uncovered all
this week. Native silver in a
large body was discovered and
samples of the bullion were
brought in and exhibited. Messrs.
Fred Allen and Phil Hankin are
the lucky prospectors. Hankin
arrived first and showed some
silver leaves that made the eyes
of the most conservative bulge
out. It was very similar to Cobalt ore and just as rich. There
were some doubters, but on Wednesday morning, when Allen came
in with more ore, and corrob-
erated Hankin's story the excitement knew no bounds. Business
was practically at a standstill.
Everybody had to see the native
silver, and no one talked of anything else. Towards the afternoon things quieted down a little
because quite a number of the
miners jumped on their horses
and started for the new find.
Allen stated that they had found
a vein from 22 to 26 inches wide
of the pure stuff, and that they
had uncovered it for a distance
of 300 feet. They have staked
four claims and they are very
confident that they have got one
of the biggest things in the whole
province. This deposit of vast
wealth is on the Hudson Bay
mountain just down the slope
from the old Tower Hill group
which Mr. Lorring,   the  Indian
agent here has, and which was
staked several  years ago before
there was any thought of a great
railway opening up the country.
Two samples of the ore were
assayed, one which showed signs
of silver to the naked eye, and it
went 5640 oz. of silver with  a
value of $2932.00.   The other was
a piece of bornite in  which no
! silver was visible, it went 179 oz.
i of silver and 46 per cent, copper.
, Both samples are sufficiently rich
i to cause a stampede.
On Monday  morning   Rankin
returned to his claims and  took
I Frank  Martin along with him.
i The more conservative Hazelton
! people   are   anxiously   awaiting
j Martin's   return.     The   feeling
I seems to be abroad that if Martin gives a favorable report to the
discovery that all  doubt will be
cleared up.   Martin's confimation
i counts for much, and if he says
i the find is genuine and that there
| are indications of a body of the
lore there will  undoubtedly be a
' stampede   to   the   Hudson   Bay
! Mountain.
The discovery of native silver
; in this district means more to the
'camp than can at first be conceived.    It will bring the Cobalt
men out here and it will opsn the
eyes of the world to the possibilities of the camp.    There will  be
an influx of population here that
'. will rival the  old  Omineca gold
I excitement.
NEWSPAPER MEN DELIGHTED
WITH NORTHERN INTERIOR
Visited Hazelton on Way from Vancouver to Prince Rupert via Fort
George and New Hazelton���Representative Pressmen from
the Coast Visibly Impressed with Country
Messrs. W. E. Playfair and
Frank Ward, two newspapermen
1 from the coast, were in Hazelton
for several days this week on the
last leg of a journey through the
Northern Interior of British Columbia, undertaken in the interests of the Vancouver News-Advertiser and the Victoria Colonist.
Starting from Ashcroft these
correspondents rode up the Cariboo road to Fort George, from
which point they made a forced
march to Hazelton in a trifle over
ten days in order to interview
President Hays of the Grand
Trunk Pacific during his recent
visit to Hazelton.
Of the prospects of the country
traversed on their journey from
Fort George to Hazelton the two
newspaper men spoke enthusiastically. Mr. Ward, who is the
staff photographer of the Victoria Colonist, was delighted with
the scenic beauties of the Hazelton district.
"To get a glimpse of Roche
de Boule is well worth making
the entire trip from Ashcroft to
Hazelton, and I am no horseman
at that," he stated. "That old
rock is the most striking thing in
the way of mountain that I have
ever seen. To my mind it alone
should be a great asset to the
large city that must spring up in
this neighborhood."
Mr. Flayfair, in speaking to
the Herald, declared that he had
been  most favorably impressed
by the country between Hazelton
and Fort George, more especially
by the district between Fort
George and Fraser Lake, and by
the Bulkley Valley in general.
"On the Cariboo road," he
said, "They told us that after
passing the 150 Mile house we
would leave the best part of British Columbia behind us. As a
matter of fact it was not until we
had passed this point that we
began to realize how little we
really knew of the resources of
this province. We found great
tracts of fertile land, well tilled
ranches, and mineral wealth that
we had only heard of vaguely
and never believed to be a reality.
"Without wishing to assume
the prophet's responsibility, I believe that the two greatest towns
along the line of the new railroad
in Northern British Columbia will
be situated, the on_ New Hazelton the other at Fort George.
The former location has an immensely rich agricultural and
mineral wealth to draw from.
The latter is unrivalled as a
natural distributing centre, and

Duncan Ross Addressed a Large Gathering in the Town Hall and Received a Splendid Reception-
Irresponsible Newspaper Censured--C. W. Peck on Reciprocity.
-An
Duncan Ross, the member-elect
for Comox-Atlin, was welcomed
by the citizens of Hazelton last
night when a very large and representative crowd gathered in
the hall. It was late when the
candidate arrived owing to the
difficulties the boats are having
on the river, but the people wanted to hear Mr. Ross and they
were present. The audience was
large and very attentive and appreciated to the fullest extent the
strong arguments put forth by
the speaker, and they could not
help but agree that the arguments of the opposition were
very weak and trifling. The disloyalty cry was shown to be most
ridiculous and the real meaning
of high protection as advocated
by the opposition was explained.
Mr. Ross delivered a masterful
address which was frequently
punctuated by applause from the
audience. On the platform with
the candidate was Mr. C. W.Peck,
of Prince Rupert, one of the
pioneer manufacturers in British
Columbia, who is supporting
Reciprocity.
Mr. Geo. Swan acted as chairman and in his opening remarks
he extended an invitation to any
opposition speaker to take the
platform for thirty minutes after
Mr. Peck had spoken. Mr. Hicks-
Beach undertook to decline the
invitation on behalf of the anti-
reciprocity party and stated that
Mr. Clements authorized him to
extend a challenge to Mr. Ross to
meet him on the Hazelton platform at any date. In his address
Mr. Ross characterized this as a
cheap bluff. Mr. Clements knows
that when he gets here Mr. Ross
will be away addressing other
meetings that have been arranged for weeks. Mr. Clements is
running around after Mr. Ross
and at the same time taking good
care that he will not be in the
same town at the same time again.
It does not agree with his (Mr.
Clements) constitution.
C. W. Peck Speaks
Mr. C. W. Peck, of Prince
Rupert, in his remarks congratulated Hazelton upon having a man
of Mr. Ross' ability and integrity
in their midst to select as their
candidate. Mr. Ross has been a
frontiersman for many years, he
has been in Hazelton for the last
two years, and he knows the
needs of the frontier and is the
best fitted of all men to represent
this constituency in the House of
Commons. Mr. Peck is a manufacturer and a business man and
he is supporting reciprocity in
every way possible. He knows
that it is a good thing for the

Duncan Ross' Address
When Mr. Ross, the Reciprocity
candidate and the next member
for Comox-Atlin, arose to speak
1 he was greeted with warm applause and all through his address
he was given the closest attention. He expressed his pleasure
at being in Hazelton again and to
meet so many of his friends and
he was especially glad to see the
ladies present as they were particularly interested in reciprocity as
it affected the cost of living and
that was their particular branch
of life's work. Before touching
Reciprocity Mr, Ross said he just
wanted to clear up some personalities that had been indulged in
by an irresponsible paper in
Hazelton. He was surprised that
personalities should be indulged
in as this question was large
enough to discuss without side
issues, and this was the only place
he had come in contact with it.
That Irresponsible paper came
out with a head line "Asiatic
Candidate was Nominated " and
the article suggested that Mr.
Ross was a friend to the Asiatics.
"My statements on the Asiatic
question in the House will be
found on the pages of Hansard,"
said Mr. Ross, "I came to British
Columbia as a young man 23
years ago and I found then that
the chief obstacle in the way of
the young man was the Asiatic
population. I started in at once
to write and preach against the
Asiatics coming to Canada. I
was writing and preaching against the Oriental population long
before the Editor of the Inland
Colonist ever left the Orient.
But there is usually a reason for
these personal  attacks,   and of
j course this case is no exception.
! Before the campaign started I
was interviewed by a representative of Mr. Jones and told that
(I could buy  the Colonist $1000.
! I  knew the  plant consisted of
I only a brokendown press, broken
down type and I decided that
even with the brokendown editor
i thrown in that the outfit was
worthless and so I did not buy.
Therefore Mr. Jones turns back
to the Conservatives and indulges
in personalities."
Reciprocity
This election was called for the
purpose of giving the people an
opportunity of deciding whether
they wanted close trade relations
with the United States or not.
So far as the opposition is concerned there is only one argument against the proposals, that |
of disloyalty to Britian and the
certain annexation to the States.
This battle cry Mr. Ross showed
to be the most shallow and most
Continued on page three
All Hazelton has been experiencing the wild excitement of
vast wealth just uncovered all
this week. Native silver in a
large body was discovered and
samples of the bullion were
brought in and exhibited. Messrs.
Fred Allen and Phil Hankin are
the lucky prospectors. Hankin
arrived first and showed some
silver leaves that made the eyes j
of the most conservative bulge
out. It was very similar to Co-
bait ore and just as rich. There
were some doubters, but on Wed- j
nesday morning, when Allen came
in with more ore, and corrob-
erated Hankin's story the excitement knew no bounds. Business
was practically at a standstill.
Everybody had to see the native
silver, and no one talked of anything else. Towards the afternoon things quieted down a little
because quite a number of the j
miners jumped on their horses
and started for the new find.
Allen stated that they had found
a vein from 22 to 26 inches wide
of the pure stuff, and that they
had uncovered it for a distance!
of 300 feet. They have staked
four claims and they are very \
confident that they have got one
of the biggest things in the whole
province. This deposit of vast
wealth is on the Hudson Bay
mountain just down the slope
from the old Tower Hill group
which  Mr. Lorring,   the Indian
agent here has, and which was
staked several years ago before
there was any thought of a great
railway opening up the country.
Two samples of the ore were
assayed, one which showed signs
of silver to the naked eye, and it
went 5640 oz, of silver with a
value of $2932.00. The other was
a piece of bornite in which no
silver was visible, it went 179 oz.
of silver and 46 per cent, copper.
Both samples are sufficiently rich
to cause a stampede.
On Monday morning Rankin
returned to his claims and took
Frank Martin along with him.
The more conservative Hazelton
people are anxiously awaiting
Martin's return. The feeling
seems to be abroad that if Martin gives a favorable report to the
discovery that all doubt will be
cleared up. Martin's confimation
counts for much, and if he says
the find is genuine and that there
are indications of a body of the
ore there will undoubtedly be a
stampede to the Hudson Bay
Mountain.
The discovery of native silver
in this district means more to the
camp than can at first be conceived. It will bring the Cobalt
men out here and it will open the
eyes of the world to the possibilities of the camp. There will be
an influx of population here that
will rival the old Omineca gold
excitement.
NEWSPAPER MEN DELIGHTED
WITH NORTHERN INTERIOR
Visited Hazelton on Way from Vancouver to Prince Rupert via Fort
George and New Hazelton���Representative Pressmen from
the Coast Visibly Impressed with Country
Messrs. W. E. Playfair and
Frank Ward, two newspaper men
from the coast, were in Hazelton
for several davs this week on the
last leg of a journey through the
Northern Interior of British Columbia, undertaken in the interests of the Vancouver News-Advertiser and the Victoria Colonist.
Starting from Ashcroft these
correspondents rode up the Cariboo road to Fort George, from
which point they made a forced
march to Hazelton in a trifle over
ten days in order to interview
President Hays of the Grand
Trunk Pacific during his recent
visit to Hazelton.
Of the prospects of the country
traversed on their journey from
Fort George to Hazelton the two
newspaper men spoke enthusiastically. Mr. Ward, who is the
staff photographer of the Victoria Colonist, was delighted with
the scenic beauties of the Hazelton district.
"To get a glimpse of Roche
de Boule is well worth making
the entire trip from Ashcroft to
Hazelton, and I am no horseman
at that," he stated. "That old
rock is the most striking thing in
the way of mountain that I have
ever seen. To my mind it alone
should be a great asset to the
large city that must spring up in
this neighborhood."
Mr. Flayfair, in speaking to
the Herald, declared that he had
been most favorably impressed
by the country between Hazelton
and Fort George, more especially
by the district between Fort
George and Fraser Lake, and by
the Bulkley Valley in general.
"On the Cariboo road," he
said, "They told us that after
passing the 150 Mile house we
would leave the best part of British Columbia behind us. As a
matter of fact it was not until we
had passed this point that we
began to realize how little we
really knew of the resources of
I this province. We found great
tracts of fertile land, well tilled
ranches, and mineral wealth that
I we had  only heard of vaguely
, and never believed to be a reality.
"Without wishing to assume
the prophet's responsibility, I believe that the two greatest towns
' along the line of the new railroad
in Northern British Columbia will
| be situated, the one New Hazelton the other at Fort George.
The former location has an immensely rich agricultural and
mineral wealth to draw from.
The latter is unrivalled as a
natural distributing centre, and

Helps Reciprocity
Very good reciprocity stuff are
the statements credited to Sir
Donald Mann, which seem to
have been carefully thought out.
According to a contempory, this
railway magnate observes that
mixed farming is necessary to
the complete prosperity of the!
west. Exclusive wheat growing
is not a healthy thing for the I
prairie provinces. Reciprocity,
will encourage mixed farming by
furnishing s nearby market for
certain farri products that at
present cannot bear the cost of a
long haul. The possible diversion
of wheat from East to South does
not seem to make this half-owner
of a trans-continental railway
nervous. He cheerfully maintains
that there will be such an increase
of production because of the increased immigration which reciprocity will bring that it will j
more than make up for the loss
of traffic. British Columbia may
look forward to a heavy increase I
in immigration which will be a ���
direct result of reciprocity. In
this province there is no doubt
that reciprocity will enormously
increase the profits of the "back-
acher." the intensive farmer
tilling his one-man farm with his
own hands, by furnishing him
with a larger market. The
strongest argument for reciprocity in British Columbia is the
ample farm land which this fortunate province posses. It is obvious that free fish will benefit
British Columbia, for the richest
sea-farms on the Pacific Coast are
this Province's, and it is only
necessary to get more capital in-1
vested in and more white men j
working at this wet farming. It
is apparent to every right thinking man that free lumber will be i
a boon to British Columbia. Con-
cerning coke, last year this pro- j
vince produced 218,029 long tons!
of the black stuff, value $1,308,-
174, and anyone can see that free
coke will be a blessing. Free
fruit will result in better apples
for the United States markets.
The apples will come from British
Columbia. The apple growers
who know what kind of apples
to grow are selling King apples
in San Francisco right now for I
five cents each, and San Francisco j
buys King apples because they
look good in San Francisco at any
price. The English who like
good things to eat love the firm-
meated, high-tinted, autumn
flavored apples that come from
British Columbia better than any
apples grown anywhere, but it is
possible that British Columbia
apples may be scarce in the Old
Country if the reciprocity agreement comes into force. The
United States market is the nearby market and will be served
first. But while the fruit grower
will get abundant results from
reciprocity, it will be the " back-
acher who will be benefited most
���the man with the hoe, the custodian of the useful hen. and the
raiser of cattle. The feeder of
stock will get free hay. British
Columbia valley hayfields will
grow five tons of hay to the acre,
but even at that the land is too
valuable for growing hay. Hay
was brought all the way from
Ontario to British Columbia last
fall. Of course the man who is
arguing against reciprocity will
say that free potatoes will lower
the price of fotatoes in this province. Perhaps it will. The
humble consumer will give thanks
to heaven and Laurier that it
does. But potatoes at greatly
lowered prices would still be immensely profitable as a crop.
British Columbia delta land has
produced as high as twenty tons
of potatoes to the acre. Give a
farmer land as productive as this,
and a near market, and things
like gold mines don't interest
him. He's got one in his own
potato patch.���Saturday Sunset.

Native Silver Strike
The greatest excitement has
prevailed in Hazelton since the
first of the week when Phil.
Hankin brought in the first samples of native silver that he and
Fred Allen had discovered on the
Hudson Bay mountain. The first
samples were small but were
solid silver and it seemed too
good to be true. Allen brought
in larger samples and then there
was real excitement, and the
boys started out immediately for
the New Cobalt. The samples
brought in are as good as any
Cobalt ore. The corner was
knocked off the poorest looking
piece of all and it was assayed.
It went over $200 in silver and
over $100 in copper. In this
piece there was no silver visable.
Cobait ore in the Hudson Bay
mountain means another great
rush. Hudson Bay mountain is
a world's wonder. Every known
mineral is found there. As yet
very little is known about the
mountain. The advance of steel
is encouraging prospecting and
strikes as great or even greater
may be expected daily. Hazelton
is the centre of the greatest mining zone that has yet been discovered. More mineral and richer mineral is being found every
day and still the country has
hardly been scratched. Mining
experts come and see and go
away filled with wonder; prospectors go out for a few days or
weeks and never fail to come
back with something good.
Hazelton and the mining district
is today on the brink of a big
boom that will startle the world.
Another sample of the ore with
silver visible assayed $2932.00.

Hudson Bay Mountain is coming in for a large share of attention this fall and there will be a
number of properties working
there this winter and especially
next spring. Mr. Steele, of
Australia, who was out here last
fall, is now on his way to the
Hudson Bay mountain to complete arrangements for developing the Schufer and Woods property. He was successful in interesting British capital in the
property and he is now ready to
start work. This property is one
of the biggest prospects in the
country and one of the most
promising. The ore is gold, silver and copper and very high
grade and in large lodges. It is
his intention to bring in mining
machinery as soon as it is possible
to get it here, and to get the work
under way. The machinery has
been ordered and a lot of it may
be in this fall. This mineral
property is in a position so that
the ore can be easily handled.
It is only three miles from the
railroad, at least a train three
miles long will land the ore on
the tracks, and this will be put
in as scon as there is any chance
to get the ore onto the trains.
The opening up of this property-
will be a good thing for the
whole Hudson Bay mountain.   .
SILVER PICK ON
FISSURE VEIN
P. J. Jennings Very Favorably Impressed with Dutch Cline's
Property aid Work
Mr. P. J. Jennings returned
from Lead King op Thursday,
where he spent several days looking over the work on his property. While there he visited
Dutch-Cline's property, the Silver
Pick group, which is just to the
east of the Lead King. Mr. Jennings was very favorably impressed with the work that has
been done on the Silver Pick.
That tunnel that Dutch has driven
and which has hit the vein is
very creditable. The ore showing is good and Silver Pick is
worth much more money than if
the tunnel had not been driven.
It is work of this kind that the
big mining men are looking for
wlien they want to buy a property. This vein on the Pick is a
continuation of the Queen vein on
the Lead King group. It has
been traced right across the King
and Dutch has also traced his vein
over to the west end of his property. Mr. Jennings says that he
is satisfied that this is a true fissure and it is one of the largest
on Nine Mile mountain. Where-
ever it has cropped it is from
3 1-2 to 6 feet wide and shows
good lead ore everywhere. The
work that is now going on at
Lead King and the other mines
in this district is progressing very
favorably and Mr. Jennings looks
for quite a stir here this winter.
The ore in all the mines is getting
better all the time and many of
the properties are in shape or
nearly so for the big operators to
come in and look them over. The
preliminary development work
has to be done by small interests
and the mines brought to a point
where the engineers for the big
companies can see something.
It is this class of work that is
now being done on many properties around Hazelton.
rediculous of all excuses. Freer
trade and more markets and more
profit could not bring about disloyalty. It was only in 1907 that
Mr. Clements, in the House of
Commons, advocated reciprocity
for the beans grown by the farmers of West Kent. Now he
wants the highest possible tariff
put on to force British Columbia
to buy Kent beans and haul
them across the continent.
Reciprocity originated in 1854
when the English statesmen instituted an agreement practically the same as this one. That
agreement between Canada and
the United States lasted for
twelve years and Canada prospered and was happy. The
States refused to continue it.
Nine times since the greatest
Conservative statesmen tried to
get that agreement renewed, but
failed. Sir Wilfrid Laurier tried
twice and the second time succeeded, but the overtures this
time came from the United
States. Because he succeeded in
doing what Sir John A. Macdonald failed to do he is disloyal to
Britain.
At the present time we are
paying from 26 to 40 per cent,
additional cost of produce because of the tariff wall. That is
the tax we pay to the Dominion
or else in extra cost to the producer. Last year British Columbia bought early vegetables from
the States to the amount of
$700,000 because none were produced in Canada. On this we
paid $200,000. You can go down
the whole list and the same enormous extra cost is added. Reciprocity will wipe this out and
that money will all remain in the
pocket of the people to whom it
belongs. The real people behind
the opposition to this agreement
are the protected manufacturers
who have been getting those
hundreds of thousands of dollars
from British Columbia every
year.
This reciprocity agreement is
only the beginning. If it is successful there is no reason why
other articles should not be added from time to time. If he was
elected he would do his utmost
to get the lead ores put on the
free list and thus help to develop
these mines. There is now a
duty of $30 per ton on lead.
Mr. Ross was loudly applauded
when he resumed his seat and
after the meeting he was met by
many of his friends who renewed
their pledge to support him and
to do their utmost on his behalf.

has in addition to this the great
Cariboo mining zone and a great
tract of agricultural land north of
the Nechaco river. I might
add here that, great as are the
possibilities of the Bulkley valley
as a farming district, I believe
that its real importance will
spring from the undoubted mineral resources of the region.
"Mr. Hays, of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, tells me that he will have
his line completed in 1914, allowing himself a liberal margin within that for all possible and improbable delays.    Judging from
! what I have seen of the Grand
Trunk  Pacific   right-of-way  be-
J tween this place and Fort George,
I think the president is leaving a
; very safe margin. With the
completion of what is locally
termed "the long tunnel" at
Kitselas the engineering difficulties at this end of construction will be over.    The remainder
1 of the line to Fort George will be
; as easy construction as any railroad on this continent was ever
j confronted with. The good people
at Fort George were anxiously
awaiting the railroad's announcement regarding the purchase of
the Indian reserve there while
we were in their midst. Since
we have been in Hazelton this
announcement has   been  made,

Labor Day was another banner
I day in Hazelton. It was one
round of pleasure from early in
the morning- until early the next
morning when the dance broke
up. At day break, and the day
breaks very early here, the resi-
; dents of the Bulkley Valley, the
Skeena River points, the Kispiox
Valley, New Hazelton and from
the hills surrounding the people
began to come in to see the sports
and the big ball game. The
streets were crowded all day. In
I the morning a program of races,
[jumping, and other games were
run off and they were greatly enjoyed by the crowds. Of course
Hetherington won the 100 yards
dash with ease. A full list of the
results will be found below.
In the afternoon the feature
was the baseball game when for
the second time this season the
locals went up against the G.T.P.
engineers team of heavy batters.
A big crowd gathered on and
around the diamond and cheered
for their respective teams. The
betting was two to one on Hazelton and there was a lot of Grand
Trunk fellows who took the fatal
chance. The game was by long
odds the best exhibition of the
international sport ever witnessed
in this town. The teams have
both improved wonderfully since
the beginning of the season and
the new men added considerably
strengthened the teams. For the
locals Rock, a brother of Bobby
Rock, was in the box and he
fanned the engineers whenever it
was necessary. He was very
ably supported by Jennings as
backstop. They made a very
strong battery and put a lot of
life in the rest of the boys. For
the engineers, Reed in the box
and Muckleston behind the bat
did equally good service. While
Hazelton had a lead all through
the game the victory was not
won until after the engineers
went to bat the last time and
failed to make good. The score
was 10 to 5.

JUST ONE NEW HAZELTON
THE SPOKANE OF CANADA
All Interests Combine to Boost the New Town���Campaign Has Started
Natural Resources Guarantee a Big Population-
Contractors' Headquarters
The New Hazelton campaign
has started. For the next few
months the very best efforts of
some of the greatest advertising
men and real estate firms in British Columbia will be devoted to
boosting New Hazelton. The
different interests have combined to make this town one of
the foremost in the province. A
careful study has been made by
experts and they are all agreed
that there cannot be too much
boosting. The natural resources
are here and they are now being
developed in a way heretofore unknown. Everything is now on
the move. Mining has this week
had a stimulation that was not
dreamed of. During the two
previous weeks several big deals
were put through which meant
the bringing in of mining men
known the world over. Agriculture has been very successful
this year and the farmers have
had bigger crops than ever. They
are all getting on their feet and
buying machinery as fast as it
can be brought into the country.
Foley, Welch & Stewart are building their new headquarters in
New Hazelton, and starting this
fall they will have a monthly pay
roll of at least $100,000, which'
means large sums of loose money
circulating in the new town.
This week Chas. S.Meek, president of Standard Securities, Ltd.,
Vancouver, was in town and completed arrangements with the
surveyors to lay out his company's property. This work has
already been started and it will be
finished in another ten days. In
three weeks the lots will be on
the market and at very reasonable prices and terms. Thisprop-
1 erty adjoins both the Northern
Interior Land Co.'s property and
Robert Kelly's property. It is
ideally located for residential purposes, and there is no doubt but
that a large portion of the population will make their homes on
those heights. This land is with-
lin four blocks of the business
section of New Hazelton. It is
all high level land and overlooks
all the rest of the town. There
is one piece of rough ground, but
that is being reserved for a park
to complete the park in the Kelly
section.
This week Mr. C. W. Peck, for
the Northern Interior Land Co.,
arrived in town and he has started
already to place his literature in
the hands of the public and is now
readv to handle all the business
that comes along. It is on the
Northern Interior Land Co.'s
property that so many of the old
Hazelton business men have purchased lots and are prepared to
build, many this fall. It is from
this point that the business section will start and grow, and
where high values will prevail.
The Kelly section, on which the
railway depot will be, and on
which the contractors are building their headquarters, will be on
the market in a very few days.
This property is the heart of the
new town. It is the central portion.
All these interests have combined and they will all advertise
New Hazelton. There will be
the one town instead of several
as might have been. This
means a great deal, in fact many
hundreds of dollars to the people
of the old town, who have been
wondering where the town would
be. From now on New Hazelton
will be introduced to the world in
a manner that no other town can
equal. There will be a big boom
this fall and winter in real estate
and there will be a big influx of
population next spring. The
campaign is on and .here will
be no let up until New Hazelton. is a big town and known
from one end of the globe to the
other. It will be a poor man indeed who does not take a chance

PICTURESQUE LARKFORD ON
THE BANKS OF THE BULKLEY
Magnificent View of the River, the Mountains and Mines Across the
Water and Beautiful Rocher de Boule at
the Rear.
A glance at the etching below
will demonstrate immediately that
Larkford is an ideal townsite
location, lying as it does between
the Kelly townsite and the picturesque Bulkley River. It is a
subdivision of Lot 883 and was
platted a year ago and offered to
the public for reservations in July
of this year.
Larkford is beautifully situated both for business locations
and residential preferences, its
proximity to the railway station,
with its level lots, making the
first desirable, and the grand
view with the gentle slope upward to the river offers opportunities for building something
that would be a real home at a
nominal cost. Nearly all the
business lots have been sold to
Hazelton and Prince Rupert merchants, the agents, Harvey &
McKinnon, of Hazelton, guaranteeing that the railway station
will be within four blocks of the
town of Larkford or money refunded.
A high-level bridge across the
Bulkley river to the mines must
be built to accommodate the ore
traffic. The road to and from
this bridge to the station must
pass through Larkford as the
mines are directly opposite Larkford across the river.
Lower Rates
Word has been received from
Foley, Weleh & Stewart steamship department that from Sept.
1 the rate on freight from Newtown to Hazelton will be $25 per
ton.
Freight Rates Down
The Hudson's Bay Co.'s steamers are hauling freight from Newtown, at the end of steel, for $25
per ton. This has always been
their rate from that point. They
are now meeting all the trains
and are giving a splendid service.
Mr. R. S. Sargent left on Wednesday for Prince Rupert on the
very important mission of securing a helpmate for the balance
of his life. Mr. Sargent will be
married on Sept. 11th to Miss
Barbeau. After a short trip
south it is Mr. Sargent's intention to bring his bride to Hazelton, her future home, where the
couple will receive a royal welcome as Mr. Sargent is known to
everybody and liked by all. The
best of wishes will be extended. THE OMINECA HERALD, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1911

Rocher de Boule is still getting
better. Every day's work brings
forth something new and some-
; thing of a surprise. For the first
: time in the knowledge of the oldest and most experienced mining
men in the district silver, lead
j and blue copper have been found
j side by side in the same vein.
Such is the case on Rocher de
Boule. Both ores are there in
large quantities and both are
very high grade. For the benefit
of the mining men in town and
those coming in Messrs. Trimble
and Pemberton have brought over
a new lot of samples and they are
on exhibition in Messrs. Harvey
& McKinnon's window. A finer
display of ore was never brought
in from any one mine, and it is
very doubtful if there is anything
at the exhibition in Vancouver
that can equal it. There is blue
copper, grey copper, yellow copper and silver and lead, all taken
from the same property. Some
samples from the same place have
also been found carrying gold
values.

Silver Cup Improving Steadily
Ever since Manager Falls
struck the ore in the third tunnel
on Silver Cup the ore has been
widening out and improving all
the time. He now has 2 feet of
very high grade ore in the tunnel
and the work is proving very
profitable. The company has decided to drive the fourth tunnel
at once, in fact it has' already
started, at a point some distance
farther down the hillside. When
the ore is struck in this tunnel,
as it surely will be, Silver Cup
will then be in a position to ship
steadily.
