GASOLINE WAS
CAUSE OF FIRE
Sudden Blaze in Hill's Cleaning Establishment Caused Excitement
and Considerable Loss
LOOKING OVER
DISTRICT ROADS
A second fire burst out on Monday
night just after 6 o'clock which caused
considerable excitement for a few minutes. Hill's cleaning and pressing
establishment adjoining Adams drug
store was the scene of the blaze. Hill
had been using gasoline for cleaning
and had the doors and windows all
closed and a small fire in the stove also.
Jn time the whole interior became
charged with gas and there was an
explosion. At the same time the whole
inside was enveloped in flames.    Fortu-
William Manson and District Engineer
Baxter Visiting from Hazelton to
Bulkley Summit
Graduation Exercises
Wm. Manson, M.P.P., Prince Rupert, arrived in town on Saturday night
to spend the next ten days in the district, looking over the roads for the
purpose of sizing up what is most urgent for this fall and what will be best
for next spring. On Sunday Mr. Man-
son was driven by Road Supt. Williscroft over the Kispiox Road as far as
the bridge and then they came back
and went up to Silver Standard Mine at
the invitation of Mr. Haskins who
happened to be in  town that morning.
One of the most pleasing events of
the season was the graduation of Miss
McDonald as a nurse from Hazelton
Hospital. Miss McDonald has completed
her three years training and has received her deploma and pin. A large
number of friends of the young lady
gathered at the residence of Doctor
Wrinch, and all joined in wishing
her every success in her new field of
labors wherever she might decide to
locate. The presentation of the deploma
and pin was made by Rev. J. Field who
referred to Miss McDonald in warm
terms and also wished her all success.
Mrs. Field presented a beautiful boquet
of sweet peas. On behalf of Miss McDonald E. H. Hicks-Beach made a
fitting reply. A musical evening was
enjoyed and after refreshments were
served the guests bid farewell to Miss
FINE SAMPLES OF     STOCK-HOLDER IN
NATIVE SILVER
Frank Martin Brought Seventy Pounds
from Hudson Bay Mountain
Vein Open 500 Feet
Frank Martin has returned from his
native silver property on Hudson Bay
Mountain and he has over seventy
pounds of samples that are now on exhibition in Harvey & McKinnon's window. This is the property that was
discovered just about a year ago and
which caused a sensation among the
miners. During this season Frank has
had men working on the property and
they have uncovered the lead between
400 and 500 feet and on the far end
have sunk   a  hole   several   feet deep.
G.T.P. IN TOWN
Made Special Trip up Skeena to Watch
Progress of Railway   Views
on Townsite Question
T. Frame-Thompson, one of the largest stock-holders in the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway, was a visitor in town
on Tuesday for an hour or so. He is
on a pleasure trip and is taking in the
various towns along the road of the
G.T.P. Mr. Frame-Thompson was here
a year ago with his family, and he saw
quite a difference in the country since
that time. He arrived at Sealey on a
special train with General Superintendent Mehan and was met there by E. H.
Hicks-Beach,  as a delegate from  the
Harris Mines is the First Shipper from District.    New Hazelton is the Shipping Point
The first shipment of ore from this district will be made from New Hazelton immediately the G.T.P. gets a car there. The Harris
Mines will start next weeK packing ore from their mine to New Hazelton and store it alongside the railway. The first shipment
will be one car, and possibly two cars, and it is expected that it will be lifted by the railway in a month. It is the intention of
the Harris Mines to ship from New Hazelton altogether. They claim the haul is miles shorter, and will mean a big saving in the
transportation rates.   The fact that they are to ship from that point is sufficient guarantee that the town will be at New Hazelton
nately half a dozen fire extinguishers
and the big engine from the Ingineca
were rushed to the scene and the
flames were extinguished almost as
soon as they broke forth. Considerable
loss resulted as Hill had about forty
suits on hand being cleaned and every
garment was more or less destroyed.
His own outfit, together with his bedding were also damaged. It might just
be mentioned that the fire chief, the
assistant chief and the secretary of the
department are all away and no one
was left in charge of the chemical engines. They had not been re-charged
after the Hudson's Bay fire until just a
couple of hours before Hill's fire broke
out and then it was C. G. Harvey
who looked after them. Mr. Harvey is
a public spirited man and this old town
owes him many debts of gratitude.
Mr. Manson was very enthusiastic over
the prospects of the Standard. On
Monday the party, consisting of Mr.
Manson, Mr. Baxter and Mr. Williscroft left for Bulkley Valley points
making Twenty Mile the first day. It
was the intention to go through to
Bulkley Summit if possible and get
back here by next Sunday. Mr. Baxter,
Prince Rupert, accompanied Mr. Man-
son on the entire tour. Mr. Baxter is
the district engineer foi* Skeena District and this is the first time he has
visited this part of his territory.
Geo. Larocque, Telkwa, spent a few
days in town this week.
HAVE FINEST ORE
IN WHOLE CAMP
Frank Martin Says Mr. Steele Has a
Fortune in His Property and
Progress is Steady
Big Strike On Harris Mines
A big strike was made last week on
the Harris Mines property when Jack
Mullen in prospecting uncovered over a
foot of solid ore in front of the cabins.
This is believed to be a continuation of
the No. 1 vein and it will be traced
along until it connects with the shaft
being sunk on the No. 1 vein some distance away. If it is found to be that
vein the strike will be one of the most
important. It is high grade and looks
very fine.
While on Hudson Bay Mountain
Frank Martin visited R. G. Steele on
Hudson Bay Mountain Mining Co's
property and went over the work that
is being done. He is very enthusiastic
over the appearance of the ground and
says that Mr. Steele has made his fortune. The long tunnel is making great
progress and they are opening up some
of the finest ore in the camp. When
the work I'or the season is done the
depth on the two big veins will be between 500 and 600 feet. It is an enormous proposition and will when working
right employ hundreds of men. It is
also known that the company will put
the men on as soon as possible.
Good Shooting
Last week Capt. and Mrs. Bonser and
chief engineer Alexander spent a few
days at Rankin's ranch in the Kispiox
j and enjoyed some fine sport hunting.
- They were very successful and bagged
quite a lot of grouse. Upon their return they remembered several of their
friends, who appreciated the delicacy.
Schell Robinson and Ben Lashbrook
have returned after their season's work
on the government road in the Bulkley
Valley and east.
McDonald who was leaving on Tuesday
morning's train for Prince Rupert
where she will visit a few days before
going on to Vancouver. Miss McDonald
will be missed in Hazelton as she was
always a favorite, both in the hospital
and in social circles.
Ralph Harrap came in Saturday night
from Prince Rupert and left again for
Telkwa and Aldermere in the interests
of J. Piercy, Morris & Co. He will
spend a few days in town on his return.
HAVE ORE A LA
SILVER STANDARD
The vein is strong and regular and the
ore is 16 to 18 inches wide. He says he
has about six tons on the dump now and
that the property is looking very much
better than he expected. The samples
that were assayed last year went over
..,000 ozs. in silver and the stuff he has
been getting this year is every bit as
good. Among the samples brought in
are about a dozen small pieces of various shapes that are practically solid
silver. These are also on exhibition in
Harvey & McKinnon's window. Martin has without doubt one of the most
valuable properties on Hudson Bay
Mountain.
Tunnel Completed on Surprise Group
and Another Will Soon Be
Started
Rod. McCrimmon and Robertson have
completed their contract on the three-
hundred-f'oot tunnel on the Surprise
group, and are now busy building a
cabin and preparing to start drifting on
the vein. They have hit the vein and
got some good-looking ore, just the
same stuff as on Silver Standard. The
amount of ore is small, but sufficient to
justify more work. There is no doubt
in the minds of all the local people but
that they will get the big bodies, as the
property adjoins Silver Standard, and
immense ore bodies are being uncovered there. It is also understood that
McCrimmon and Robertson will get
contract for another tunnel of the same
length, which will lie a continuation of
the one just finished. The new work
will open up some of the bigger veins.
Cables and Mine Supplies
On another page of this issue will be
found the announcement of Geo.
Cradock & Co., manufacturers of cables
and miners supplies, etc. The firm
have a large stock in Vancouver and it
will be very convenient for the miners
of the Hazelton district who are using
such things in increasing quantities.
Mr. Garrett, manager of the Vancouver
branch was in town a few weeks ago
figuring on the high level bridge at
Haguelgate to connect the mining properties with New Hazelton, writes that
he will be back here again next week.
Jack Hart returned to town Monday
night, after spending a week along the
Kitseukla river, ami left Tuesday on a
flying trip to Vancouver.
Hazelton Board of Trade, who brought
him around by way of New Hazelton,
and introduced him to several people
in town.
Mr. Frame-Thompson is an engineer,
and, in speaking of the various town-
sites in this district, he expressed himself as strongly in favor of but one
town, and did not think there was any
wisdom in so many sites being put on
the market. He would not say that he
favored the railway townsite at all, but
that, in his opinion, either place would
be good for town purposes. He also
stated that it would have been easy for
the railway to have come through old
Hazelton, which he thinks���as all do���
is the prettiest site of them all.
After spending an hour or so in town
he returned to Sealey in company with
R. DeB. Hovell, president of the Board
of Trade.

will go stronger on this occasion.
GROUP SEVENTEEN CLAIMS ON ROCHER DE BOULE
Halloran & Thompson Pay Cash for Eight Claims==New District to be Opened Up on that Big Hill==
Big Showing of Grey and Yellow Copper on the Property
To See the Duke
While in Sealey on Tuesday afternoon R. DeB. Hovell saw Mr. Mehan
in connection with running an excursion
from Sealey to Van Arsdol, or what
ever point the Duke of Cannaught and
his party stopped at on the occasion of
their visit about Sept. 25th. Mr. Mehan
said that it would be impossible to run
a special train but suggested that Hazelton people go down on Tuesday's
train and come back on Wednesday's
train. He would communicate with
Mr. McMaster in Rupert and have him
write to Mr. Hovell as to the rate for
that trip.
By the purchase last week of a group
of eight claims on Rocher de Boule
mountain, at the head of Mud creek,
Messrs. Barney Halloran and Billy
Thompson are now in the possession of
seventeen claims in a new section of
that wonderfully-mineralized rock pile.
The name of the new group is Reservoir group, which was staked by Alex.
Jenkins, John Mann and Pete McNichol.
By the purchase, Halloran and Thompson have one of the largest groups of
claims in the district, and they know
what they have purchased as they nave
already staked nine claims adjoining,
making a total of seventeen claims.
This summer Halloran and Thompson
spent considerable time on Rocher de
Boule mountain, at the head of Mud
creek. They found excellent indications, and they did a lot of prospecting,
with the result that they were satisfied
they had found their life's stake. The
mineral is grey and yellow copper, and
some of the veins were traced over to
the Rocher de Boule Mining Co's property. The same big veins run right
through the Extension and onto the
Reservoir group. There are also several other veins exposed and they all run
from one foot to five feet in width on
the surface.
The property is very well situated,
being only six miles from the railway,
with a splendid grade for a wagon road
and a fine route for a tramway.    On
the ground is also a big waterfall and j
a couple of pretty little lakes. There
is enough timber for all purposes, and
altogether Reservoir group promises to
be the ideal mining property of the
camp.
The boys left on Monday morning for
their new ground and will erect a camp
and get a lot of work laid out for next
season. They will also do as much development this fall as possible, and if
the snow keeps off a short while they
will be able to accomplish a great deal.
They will at least open some of the
veins and get out a bunch of samples.
Early next spring they will begin extensive operations.
The last steamer for the port of old
Hazelton has gone. On Tuesday the Inlander whistled for the last time in the
northern waters and pulled away from
her old birth and starter down stream
for Port Essington at a good clip. For
the last three weeks the Inlander has
been tied up here on account of the
low water. On Monday night the rains
in the north caused the river to rise
several inches and Captain Bonser ordered steam up and the crew on board
to take the last trip while the water
was promising as there is grave danger
of it dropping any time never to come
up again this year. It was just noon
hour when the steamer whistled and in
a couple of minutes the lines were cast
and the boat started down while a number of citizens stood on the shore and
waved a last farewell to the captain
and his crew. With the departure of
the Inlander ends the transportation on
the Skeena river as far north as Hazelton.
The Inlander has been on the river
for the last three years and she was
owned mostly by local people. From
the first trip she was a popular boat
and was always given a big share of the
local business. That the Inlander was
a good investment is known to everyone. Her days of usefulness are not
yet passed. There is a strong possibility that after the winter's rest and repairs are made the boat will be com-

FORTY THOUSAND DOLLAR FIRE
WIPES OUT BIG WAREHOUSES
Hudson's Bay Co., McDonnell & McAfee and Broughton & McNeil the
Losers==SuppIies for Interior Burned==$40,000 Worth
of Furs Saved by Good Work of Citizens
The destruction of the Hudson's Bay
warehouses and the warehouse of
Broughton & McNeil and McDonnell &
McAfee last Saturday morning was one
of the most unfortunate and fortunate
fires that ever visited Hazelton or the
Interior. Fortunate because there was
no wind to carry the burning pieces of
wood to other parts of the town where
everything was in fine shape for a general devastation, and unfortunate because so much valuable goods was destroyed. The greater portion of the
goods were for Hudson's Bay outposts
and many tons were already baled and
ready for the pack train which was to
start for the Babine district that morning. Many tons of goods were also for
other outposts. Altogether the loss of
the contents amounted to somewhere
around $25,000. The most unfortunate
part is that the season is so far advanced that it will be difficult, if at all
possible to get new supplies up the
river and out to the distant posts before winter sets in. There is a very
good chance of some of the settlers,
prospectors, and Indians being hungry I
before the supplies get in next year.
The Hudson's Bay stock for the local
store was not nearly so heavy as other
years and most of that was in the middle store house and the main store
which were both saved.
McDonnell and McAfee were also
heavy loosers. They had over 200
barrels of beer in their warehouse
ready to be shipped to Telkwa and the
greater portion of this was lost. Other
freight in the warehouse was lost but
there was not much on hand.
The fire broke out in the rear part of
the Hudson's Bay warehouse and
started on the inside as near as can be
judged. The cause is unknown, like
several other fires in town during the
past few months.    It was about three
o'clock when discovered and the alarm
rung by McDougall of the Galena Club.
In a very few minutes the entire
population began tumbling out of bed
and down town. C. G. Harvey was one
of the first on the scene and in the absence of the regular fire chiefs he took
command and handled the lire in a
masterly manner. The citizens worked
hard under his direction and a good
many thousands of dollars worth of
property was saved. The years catch
of furs from the interior posts, which
had just recently been received, were
all saved from Broughton & McNeil's
warehouse. Ragstad's jewellery store
was quickly emptied as were also the
Riverside  Rooms and the Union Bank.

I These buildings were also saved all
though at times it seemed impossible
to do anything. The water brigade did
excellent work. Then the attention
of the acting chief and citizens was diverted to the Hudson's Bay centre
warehouse which had caught fire. A
water line was formed to the river and
hundreds of buckets passed along to
the men on the inside who did splendid
work in saving the building and contents. All the more wonderful was the
work when it is remembered that a
hundred cases of coal oil went up in
flames just a few feet away. Every- j
one worked hard and the united action I
won the victory.
In one warehouse where the Babine
goods were stored was one parcel containing $800 with $150 in silver.   The j
silver was afterwards recovered.
The Hudson's Bay Co. carry their
own insurance, and that was all the insurance on any of the stuff. The total
loss by the fire will run close to $40,000. I
Charred pieces of wood were scattered
for a radius of nearly two miles. A
very slight breeze would have destroyed
the whole town.
A feature of the Labor Day celebration in Hazelton was the unique
souvenir programs issued by the Omineca Herald job department in honor of
the occasion. These were gotten up in
colors and in booklet form and were
generally conceded to be the best sample of the printers art ever issued in
Hazelton or the north. They were
eagerly sought after and many were
kept as souvenirs and many more were
sent away to friends. The Omineca
Herald always leads in better printing,
and maintains the reputation already
established as a newspaper and advertising medium. It's the best all the
time.

Granby Bay Townsite
The Smelter City
THE Granby Co. is one of the greatest mining and smelting organizations
in America. They are big operators,
and in opening the great copper mines and
building the smelter on Observatory Inlet
they are developing a new district in a
mammoth way. The company has about
400 men now on development and construction work, and another hundred men are to
be put on immediately. The pay roll now is
considerably over $1000 a day. Besides the
Granby mines and works, a number of other-
rich prospects are being developed. Your
own judgment will tell you what this means
to the town which is now opened. Town
lots are now offered for the first time.
AS Trustees for the owners, we have fyled the plans of the
new smelter city, registered as Granby Bay, and the town-
site is now open to     r^ry rr\     DUyers f or the first time.
Lots are being offered at     (j|_ 1     from $200 to $800 and

Work has been commenced on
the Coronada Group on Hudson
Bay Mountain and it will be continued all winter. R. J. McDonnell is one of the chief owners
and he states that they will put
the property in shape so that it
can be operated as a continual
shipper or else have it so far advanced that in case they want to
sell the prospective purchaser
will know pretty well what he is
getting. The ore on the Coronada
Group is high grade silver-lead
and they have some very fine
showings. A lot of work has
already been done on it and more
than one good offer has been
made for it by mining men who
have seen it. Mr. McDonnell
says that five men will be on the
job and he expects to have a big
bunch of ore on the dump by the
time the rails get there. He also
wants a sleigh road constructed
to the property. It is only a few
miles and the cost would not
amount to much. To get this
road he intends to prove that he
has a big mine that is worthy of
the expenditure.

farther up the hill and on the

very rich in ore and both are big

missioned by the contractors on the

she will be operatir.g around the southern part of the province.
The crew of the Inlander was popular
with the people. From Capt. Bonser,
who has navigated the Skeena River on
the different boats for the last twenty
years, down to the stoker they all received the respect of the people, and
they showed proper respect also. Manager Harry B. Rochester is well known
and he is a rustler. Through him and
his business ability the boat made a
great success. He will also be missed
in this neighborhood, although he will
likely make trips up the line occasionally.
From now on the Hazelton people and
the people of the entire interior are dependent upon the Grand Trunk Pacific
for freight and transportation facilities.
It is to be hoped that the railway company will display the same consideration
for the rights of the people that the
steam boats did, and that they will rush
their rails along to New Hazelton and
thus serve the rapidly growing town
there as well as the people in the old
town who at best will be here only a
short time longer.

Stewart that if the veins turn
out right there will be lots of
room on that property to work a
thousand men. All this ore will
be shipped via New Hazelton.
The owners have already found
a passage with a down hill haul
all the way to connect with the
Two Mile road and they are preparing to ship this winter. With
hundreds of men working taking
out ore for shipment at New
Hazelton, that alone means a big
thing towards the upbuilding

Railhead, G.T.P., Mile 53, B.C.-
With 4,000 men, ten steam shovels, two
big boats, and hundreds of carloads of
dump carts, cranes and tackle, the
Grand Trunk Pacific contractors have
now got the work well under way for
the last lap of the transcontinental,
being the 210 miles from the present
head of steel at Mile 53 to Fort George.
Surprising as it may seem, the Grand
Trunk is just now entering upon one of
the hardest parts of their whole work,
the 210 miles to Fort George, and also
surprising it is to learn that this work
is made the hardest not because there
is heavy rock work, but because there
is no rock at all. On the contrary, the
whole stretch is along sidehills composed of the slipperiest and muddiest
mica clay to be found anywhere on this
mundnne sphere. The engineers have
now run into a constituent which defies
all the laws known to railroading
science, and which will keep the shovels
working for two years after the steel is
actually laid.
Ottawa,   Aug.   22. ��� A  circular  has
I been  issued  recently  by  the   department of Labor and sent to various railway contractors on government work.
The circular contains certain regula-
' tions   calculated  to  protect men  em-
1 loyed  on  such  work,   and it requires
: that   all   contractors,    sub-contractors
and other employers of labor shall keep
a complete record of names,  nationalities,   place of birth  and latest address
in   Canada,   together  with   home   addresses and  name  and  local addresses
of nearest relatives of employees.
In the past such record has not been
I kept, and as a result many foreign laborers with families at home, in case
of death, have been buried unidentified.
Inquiry from waiting relatives at home
in many cases has been futile.
Under the new regulations the names,
, addresses, etc., will be forwarded to the
department of labor for reference  in
case of death.

steamer "Rupert City," Captain J.
Boyd, is to go to San Pedro with a
cargo of fertilizer. The vessel loaded
some of this at Victoria and is now at
Union Bay bunkering. Then she will
go to Powell River to load paper for
San Francisco and her final port of
loading will be Sechart, where she will
take on more fertilizer.    The steamer
, laid idle here a long time and since going
into commission  has   made two  trips

its guard.
Local business men are all well
satisfied with the improvement
in local conditions. They are all
busy and state that business is
getting better every day. As the
old town fades away the new
town is bound to improve. The
railway is also a great boom to
the new town.
Wm. Manson, M. P. P., and

made. A request will also be
made for another appropriation
for Twelfth Avenue. With that
work done the town would make
a very much better appearance.

people to get started right.
There are two fundamental
advices that should have precedence over everything else. One
is, not to be in a hurry, but take
time for a careful study of the
situation as a whole, and as it relates to your individual circumstances. The second is, to start
in on a small scale, even through
you have plenty of money. If a
mistake is made at either of these
two points, the consequences are
likely to be unfortunate.
There is something very fascinating about a successful poultry
plant, where everything is trim
and neat, where the fowls are|
handsome and productive, and
where there are evidences of
success on eveiy hand. And
many persons have been suddenly smitten with a severe attack
of "chicken fever" while visiting
such a plant, and, without waiting to get posted on the thousand
and one important matters of detail, they have cut loose from
their business moorings and set
sail on an unknown sea, in a
poorly equipped vessel, only to
find themselves shipwrecked during the first storm that arose.
Some thought must be given
to the matter of securing necessary supplies and help, while the
finding of a profitable market is
of vital importance. The kind of
soil and the "lay of the land"!
must also be considered.
Then there is the personal ele-1
ment that must be reckoned with.
The actual work of caring for a
j poultry plant is not as heavy and
trying as digging ditches or helping to build a new railroad under
in the open air, largely, and the
privilege of watching things grow
is decidedly pleasant, and when
intelligently and skillfully managed there is a fair margin of
profit in the business-considerably more than is realized from

experience���have put from five
to twenty thousand dollars into
plants, and, having no actual
knowledge of the poultry business, it has been but a question
of time for them to make an utter failure.
So that the safest advice that
can be given is to start in a small
way, with poultry as a side-line,
while retaining the position which
ensures a comfortable living. In
a short time a lot of problems
will solve themselves and the experimenter will be able to see his
way clearly, and can go ahead to
large things or gracefully withdraw with no very serious harm
in any direction.
Fortunately, enough intelligent
people have experimented with
every phase of the poultry business to make it possible for anyone to secure much valuable information, second-hand, which is
an easier and less expensive
method than acquiring it for one's
self. Much of this information
is available, and the beginner
need not start in the dark. But
it is wise for him, however, to
try out his first experiments on
such a scale as will not cripple
him if success should not come
at the first venture.
Success is much surer than
failure, provided a reasonable
amount of common sense is used,
in the same way and the same
proportion as in any other business. No one need be uneasy
over the outcome if he will follow
the two suggestions of this article
���to take time for consideration,
and to start in a moderate way.
