Post Offices for Francis Lake and
Pleasant Valley.
A. R. McDonald of Francis
Lake, one of the early settlers in
that district, returned from the
coast this week and brought the
news that a post office has been
granted for tne lake settlers.
W. D. Harris will be postmaster
and there will be a monthly service connecting with Fraser
Lake. Being centrally located on
the north shore of the lake this
office will supply a long felt
want. An attempt was.made by
the Francis lake settlers to have
mail connection with Aldermere
and thus put them in direct communication with the government
offices of the district, located at
Hazelton. However, with the
establishment of a post office at
Pleasant Valley, thirty miles
spufch.of Aldermere, the present
summer, it is hoped that the
Francis Lake office and the Pleasant Valley will be connected and
thus give direct communication
between Quesnel and Hazelton
and all intermediate points.
An interim appropriation has
been granted by the provincial
government to start work on the
Francis lake wagon road and it
is thought quite a large amount
of money will be spent on roads
and trails on both sides of the
lake before the summer is over.
The matter of a post office for
Ootsa Lake has been taken up
with the department at Ottawa
with every prospect of success in
the near future.
While at the coast Mr. McDonald met many people who are
looking toward the-Francis and
Ootsa lakes district as their future home, and from present indications there is to be a great
influx of people there this year.
LOCAL AND DISTRICT NEWS.
E. H. Hick3 Beach has moved
into his new office, which __was
built this spring.
Mr. and Mrs. W. Webster of
Bulkley Valley were visiting in
Hazelton this week.
Aldous & Robertson will open
real estate and insurance offices
on the second floor #f the Herald
building Tuesday.
The steamers Port Simpson and
Kazeltoh departed for Prince Ru
pert Thursday, after waiting almost a week for a proper stage of
water.
R. Widi, J. M. Lobi, Peter
Skubo, W. Deki and Wm. Whit*
sett, who came up the river a
short time ago, have located in
Bulkley Valley.
As showing the increasing
amount of business done each
year in the northern interior,
there were nine commercial travelers showing samples in Hazelton the last week.
R. J. McDonald, proprietor of
the Essington Hotel at Port Essington, which is headquarters
for tne mining men coming into
the district, and favorably known
to all residents of the interior,
was a visitor in towii this week.
A splendid line tif men's suits
has just been received at Cunningham & Son's store. These suits
are right up-to-date and superior
to anything ever offered in Hazel
ton. The public are respectfully
invitied by the Major to inspect
this new line.
R. L. Gale, deputy mining recorder at Aldermere, has entered
into partnership with R. E. Williams, the land man, and henceforth will operate jointly under
the firm name of Gale & Williams,
witn offices at Telkwa. The recording office will be moved at
once to Telkwa. Attention is
called to their advertisement appearing in this issue.
Mr. J. Piercy, of ,L Piercy,
Morris & Co., wholesale dealers
in men's furnishings, dry goods,
tents, etc., was calling on the
trade this week in the interests of
his firm. This is the first wholesale house to be established north
of Vancouver, and shows a faith
in prince Rupert and Northern
British Columbia, which should
command the attention of
every business man in the Interior. Mr. Piercy will be up the
river again in July.
W.. H. Wilson, of Palouse,
Wash.; Adam Rammers, of West-
lake, Idaho, and Herman Helm.
Of Ferdinand, Idaho, arrived from
Francis lake Tuesday. They have
staked land for purchase in behalf of themselves and friends
and as a result quite a colony of
of Washington and Idaho people
will move in there this summer.
Kammers and Helm have left for
their homes in the States but expect to be back in two months
with their families and effects,
A sawmill owned by Mr. Kammers will be brought along and
erected on the shore of Francis
lake. In all there will be sixteen
or seventeen families in the party,
all of those who have'land staked
for them by Mr. Wilson being
prepared to move this year.
Tinned butter, 50 cents per
pound at C. V. Smith's.
Monday next is Victoria Day, a
public holiday observed throughout the Empire.
Two representatives of a colony
of Germans, now living in the
States and numbering forty-one
families, arrived a few days
since, coming here from Francis
lake. They were well pleased
with the country about Francis
lake, but having instructions to
secure land for all in one solid
block, they were unable to satisfy
themselves in that locality. Besides their household goods and
farming implements they have a
sawmill ready packed for shipment and the whole colony will
come on receipt of a wire from
their agents. A strong effort is
being made to locate them in this
district, which at present writing
seems likely to succeed. Both
men expressed themselves as being extremely well pleased with
the countrv they had seen and
admitted that as ah agricultural
country it met their requirements abmirably.
Has Interests in Northern Interior.
R. J. McDonald of Port Essington was a passenger on the Simpson last Sunday, returning to
Essington Thursday. Mr. McDonald will return about the first
of July, at which time he expects to make the trip- into the
Inginecia, where he is largely interested and determine the advisability of installing a machinery plant there.
For years Mr. McDonald has
been prominently identified with
the development of the interior
and has probably put more money
into the district than any other
individual. Besides the Ingineca
he holds interests in dredging
leases in the Omineca river
country which are being prospected this vear and also has an interest in three or four groups of
claims on Hudson's Bay mountain, which are considered to be
among the particularly good
things of that mountain noted for
its rich ore. Development work
will be continued on these claims
this summer.
The showings on these claims,
the Halley Group, the Simpson
Group and the Ashman Group,
have been looked over by a number of mining men in, the past
two or three years and they have
all united in the opinion that the
showings are magnificent, the
transportation problem being the
only drawback. Smelter returns
on the 9,200 pounds of ore packed
out to Hazelton and snipped to
the Tacoma smelter showed values of over one hundred dollars
per ton. Being only fifteen miles
from the main line of the G.T.P.,
when once the railroad is completed into the - Bulkley Valley
these claims will be admirably
situated for handling their ore at
a reasonable cost.
Secure. Some of that neat pattern crockery from C. V. Smith's.

Died at Age of 1000 Years.
New York���Methuselah died at
his home in the Bronx zoo last
week. He was 1000 years old,
and his death is ascribed to ills
incident to old age.
Mathuselah, also known as
Rameses II, was a toad who was
discovered in a rock pocket 500
feet below the surface at Butte,
Mont., two years ago. He was
sent to the zoo here, where his
age was carefully computed by
the zoologists and geologists.
For a time he appeared to thrive
in his new home, but later he
seemed to become disheartened
and for the past few weeks has
been steadily sinking. His remains will be preserved in alcohol.
Mouse Causes a Panic.
A mouse caused a panic among
the three hundred spectators in a
moving picture show given in the
Womelsdorf, Pennsylvania, town
hall the other night. The mouse)
was discovered on a window
ledge by a young woman, whd
screamed just as loud as she1
could. In an instant one hundred
women were standing on chairs
and appealing to the men to kill
the ferocious animal. The show'
was suspended for ten minutes-.
Chairs and benches were upsef
and Window panes broken in th*e>
confusion. No one Was hurt.
The mouse Was caught alive by
Mrs. Martin Bellema^n, who prizes
it for the excitement it stirred
up. Mrs. Belleman is now considered one of the bravest women
in the state.
