HAZELTON,   B. C.,   FEBRUARY   16,   1912

THIRTY-SIX
ARRESTS MADE
Officers of Structural Iron Workers
i
are being Gathered In By The Police
(Special to the Herald)
Indianapolis, Feb. 14. Thirty-
six of the officers of the Structural Iron Workers Union from
sixteen different States were
arrested to-day as a result of the
recent indictment of the Grand
Jury on the charge of complicity
in the dynamite outrages. The
recent developments in this matter will have and are having a
far reaching effect. The officials
of the States are letting nothing
remain undone to root out all
connected with the dynamiting
cases. At the present time there
are many persons connected the
union who are not enjoying a
contented mind.
Gompers Is Innocenti
(Special to the Herald)
Washington, Feb. 14. - The
Department of Justice has exonerated Gompers and all the officers of the American Federation
of Labor of any connection with
the dynamite conspiracy.
KING'S SPEECH
DISAPPOINTING
Did not  Refer  at all   to   Germany
which was Considered of Greatest Imprortant
To Start on Upper Vein
Work is to be started within
the next few days on the 400 foot
tunnel to the upper vein on
Rocher de Boule. At first only a
few men will be employed there
getting it started arid ready for
the steam drills to be installed
when they get up the river. The
upper vein is the big copper vein
and a great deal of work will be
done on it this season. The tunnel on the lower vein was in 171
feet on Tuesday when Mr. Cowan
left and he says that the rock is
getting very heavily mineralized
and that it is only a matter of a
very few days when they will be
into the real vein. He also stated
that no time would be lost and
no expense spared in getting the
machinery up from the end of
steel.
Another Ore Stringer
When Duke Harris came down
from the Harris Mines on Tuesday he said that the boys had cut
through another little stringer of
ore which was about six inches
wide and contained- some good
looking ore. This is the fourth
stringer they have cut through
since the tunnel was started
which shows that the property is
well mineralized and at depth.
Nothing will be done with these
until the tunnel is completed and
then probably they will drift on
them for a few feet to see what
turns up. Progress on the tunnel is very satisfactory and this
week several new men went up
to work so that they will make
better headway, although the
boys do not look for the vein until about the first of March as at
first predicted.
Victoria is Leading
(Special to the Herald)
Victoria, Feb. 14.���Victoria is
now leading in the ice hockey
games in the coast league. The
Vies defeated Vancouver on Tuesday night by a score of six to
four. Westminster is in second
place.
Chinese Affairs
(Special to the Herald)
Nanking, Feb. 14. ���A caucaus
of the National Assembly has
voted in favor of making Yuan
Shi Kai president of China after
the end of February. The Empress Dowager has issued an
edict announcing the complete
abdication of the throne. Chinese
affairs are now beginning to clear
somewhat.
Anglo-French Pact
(Special to the Herald)
Berlin, Feb. 14.���The German
Anglophobes see in Deliasses
naval plans for France a close
Anglo-French pact whereby England will defend the north coast
of France and France will concentrate her fleet, in the Mediterranean.
Special to the Herald
London, Feb. 14. ���The speech
of King George at the opening of
Parliament   today  was a great
disappointment   to   many.     His
, Majesty  referred to everything
j of interest, except Britain's re-
I lations  with  Germany.    It was
| expected that there would be a
special   announcement  on   this
vital question.
Moved Their Plant
Messrs. Stephenson & Crum
have completed their new planing
mill on the Government road and
this week moved their machinery
out. In a day or two they will
have everything installed and
running full blast. A big pile of
lumber is already on the ground
waiting for the planet.
BOARD OF TRADE
COUNCIL MEET
South Hazelton Again Crops Up But
Was Turned Down By The Council
Quiet in Ireland
(Special to the Herald)
Belfast, Feb. 14.���All is quiet
here now since Churchill made
his home rule speech here last
Saturday. The five thousand
troops kept good order.
Agitator's Victory
(Special to the Herald)
Vancouver, Feb. 14.---The labor
unions and socialists have finally
come to an agreement with the
police commissioners whereby
free speech will be allowed the
agitators on certain conditions,
but not until their excited members and speakers have quieted
down.
M. Sheedy has been offered a
profit of $700 on one of his lots
in New Hazelton.
J. McPherson, manager of the
Hudson's Bay Co.'s. branch at
Babine, is in town this week.
Spent a Quiet Week
(Special to the Herald)
Victoria, Feb. 14.���The week
has been a very quiet one in the
Legislature. The chief discussion
was on Hon. R. Ross' Forest Bill
and Bowser's amendment to the
Liquor Act.     It is expected that
' the budget will be presented next
week.    There are still rumors of
jan election this summer with a
new railway policy for the
Premier.
Billy Sargent left this week
for Rocher de Boule where he
will spend a few days. He may
also run over to the Ohio group
which adjoins the Rocher de
Boule, and which he and C. H.
Munro own.
A New Premier
(Special to the Herald)
London, Feb. 14.���Owing to the
ill-health of Premier Asquith it is
rumored that he is about to retire
from public life. Sir. Ed. Grey
has been made a Knight of the
Garter, which is seldom conferred
on commoners, and which makes
it impossible for him to serve
under Lloyd-George who has been
mentioned as successor to Asquith.
Placer Miners
The Jensen boys left this week
for their gold diggings in the Ingenica country. They took their
supplies in with them and they
expect to have a good season's
work. Chas. McKinnon, one of
the oldest prospectors and miners
in this district, will leave for
Manson Creek in the Omineca
about the middle of next month.
He predicts a big crowd in there
this season and he is looking for
good results.
New Road House
Dan Carroll, one of the best
known mining men in the district, has just completed a road
house at Chicken Lake and he is
now ready for business. He has
gone to considerable expense in
getting things in good shape and
he will do a big business this coming season. He has stable accommodation for over 20 horses
beside the house for the teamsters. Chicken Lake will always be an attractive place and
there will be more or less business
in and around that fine agricul-
cultural district from now on. Mr.
Carroll's many friends will wish
him every success in this undertaking.
Supt. Sheppard made a flying
I trip to town this week.
CONSTRUCTION CAMP "19"
On the G.T.P. Railway, 4 Miles from New Hazelton
A meeting of the council of the
Board of Trade was called for
Wednesday afternoon and five of
the members turned up. The
correspondence carried on by the
Secretary was passed upon.
Then the townsite question came
up again. It appears that an
official and verbatim report of
the proceedings of Dec. 19th of
the Railway Commission has
been received. D'Arcy Tate,
solicitor for the G. T. P. claimed
to have a petition before him
which was signed by "every responsible person in Hazelton"
and that thev asked for a station
at South Hazelton. Mr. Pringle,
who had been retained by New
Hazelton people, claimed that
he represented the business interests of Hazelton. The Board
of Trade Council yesterday decided to wire the Railway Commissioners that the Hazelton
Board of Trade was not aware
that either Mr. Tate or Mr.
Pringle were representing Hazelton people or Hazelton interests.
As a matter of fact the petition
from some of the local people or
the claims of the lawyers was not
considered at all by the commissioners. They based their decision and their remarks entirely
upon the contract between Robt.
Kelly and the Grand Trunk Paci-
ific Railway Co. and the many
letters which were exchanged
after the contract had been signed and accepted.
The opinion generally is that
there are no grounds whatever
for any fight on an appeal from
the decision of the commissioners.
N .
WILL BUILD THE BRIDGE
_ ri
Word has been received from
Vancouver and Ottawa stating
that the much talked of appeal
against the railway commissioners decision in the South Hazelton
and New Hazelton case is mostly
wind and that there is absolutely
no chance for anything being
done that will alter matters whatever. Mr. Clements also states
that a number of the members
of Parliament are among the
purchasers of lots in New Hazel-1
ton and that the town is nearly
as well known there as it is in
British Columbia.
I. is also stated on the best of
authority that Robt. Kelly will
himself put up the money for the
construction of the high level
bridge over the Bulkley connecting the mines with the depot in
[ Section Two, of New Hazelton.
This same bridge will also give
I direct connection with the large
area of excellent agricultural
lands in the Kispiox Valley.   The
! bridge will be built, if not by the
, Provincial Government, then by
Mr. Kelly, owner of Section Two
I of New Hazelton.
The Basket Social
The basket social given by the
Ladies' Aid of the Presbyterian
Church or. St. Valentine's night
was a great success. The hall
was filled to capacity and the
audience included several from
New Hazelton. The decorations
were very appropriate and the
hall never looked so well. The
program was original and the
ladies taking part deserve great
credit for the success they
achieved. As a result of. the
sale of baskets over fifty dollars
was realized and this will help
the ladies materially in carrying
on their work.
Three Years in Fortress
(Special to the Herald)
London, Feb. 14. ��� Feeling is
running high against the secret
trial and sentence of Bertrand
Stewart to three years in the
fortress. He was a supposed
British spy in Germany. It has
since been learned that the principal witness against him has
admitted that he himself has
been a spy in both England and
Germany. Minister of War Hal-
dane returned from Germany
on Monday and it is believed
that his visit was connected
with the conviction.
Hazelton Won
The Hazelton Hockey team defeated Telkwa in the game Wed-
| nesday afternoon by a score of 2
! to 1. The game was closely congested all through and the valley
I boys showed splendid form.
On several occasions this season
it has been necessary to make
repairs to the old Bulkley bridge
to keep it safe for the heavy
traffic over it. The steep gravel
bank on the road going down to
the bridge on this side is also
starting its yearly slides. All
these expenses will be done away
with when the new bridge is
built.
Mr. Harrup returned to Prince
Rupert this week after a very
successful trip.
Mr. Woodall left on Wednesday for a trip into the Bulkley
Valley to look over the country
and also to pick up information
as to business opportunities. He
will be away for a week or
i ten days, maybe longer. THE OMINECA HERALD, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1912.

The Romance of the Road
In the interests of good roads
we will publish in three parts,
"The Romance of the Road."
There is no part of the Dominion
of Canada that needs good roads
quite as much as the Northern
Interior of British Columbia.
"There is something primitive
and permanent and imperishable
about the road. Mankind has
never gotten anywhere without a
road, and the rate and direction
of human progress has been always determined by the roads of
people.
"The inventions of modern
progress has essayed to despise
the road. Steamships have
sailed away in contempt of the
highway on the shore, and the
locomotive has sounded its jeering screech at every crossing on
its right-of-way. Trolley cars
have whizzed past, and now the
aeroplane shakes the dust of the
road from its wings and rises in
disdain above the poor old dirt
road.
"But the road stays on. The
ascending rockets of ambition
sometimes back, stick-like, upon :
the earth, and some of the high-
minded travellers are often more
than glad to take once more to
the good old road their fathers
trod. And that's just what it is,
the world-old, universal dirt road,
by which people made their way
ahout the earth from the year
one till now. It has been the
path of progress, the trail of torture, the lover's lane, the highway to happiness, the road to
riches ��� and to the poor house.
Priests and paupers, millionaires
and mendicants, maidens and
soldiers and little children all
pass in the road, for once on a
common level.
"The road is very much like
human life; it bears the scars of
toose that have passed over it. It
is also like living, in that if you
want to get anywhere you must
keep going, and if you keep going, it makes all the difference in
the world which road you take.
Some roads lead to the gardens
of life and some to the cemetery.
Some run across the sands of
life's deserts and some where the
fishing is good.
"The are no helpless people in
the world except those who have
no roads. And there is hope for
them if they will build roads.
Over in the island of Guam, there
is but one road, and that a poor
one leading across the island.
Many of the people of Guam have
never been away from home, not
so much as the distance of a
Sabbath day's journey two and
a half miles. Most of them have
never seen the other side of the
island, ten miles away. And
there are citizens of Guam who
live in some parts of North
America. They are easy enough
to find,  if you ever knew where
They are playing tennis and
bowling on the green in Prince
Rupert. Clam-eating parties are j
also canoeing across the harbor.
In a few weeks more when the
rest of Canada is getting out
doors, the Rupertites will be sailing kytes, houses, lumber piles,
1 roofs and everything else that's
movable. At that Prince Rupert
is a good place to dwell.
In some places along the coast
where they have a bad weather
reputation, particularly Prince
Rupert, the press is working
overtime to tell about the summer weather they have in the!
winter. Without any desire to I
detract from the coming seaport
city, there is no climate that can
equal that of the Hazelton district. It is seasonable here. But
it is more than that. The snow
falls all on two occasions. It lies
flat because there is no wind to
stir it up. The severe cold comes
all at once and probably lasts ten
days. Then all the rest of the
winter the thermometer rarely
goes below zero and is usually
from ten to thirty degrees about,
making the winter sports thoroughly enjoyable. Skating,
sleighing, tobogganing, snow
shoeing, and sleigh riding
with dog teams are in full swing
and you never bundle up in furs
and great coats. Hazelton has
them all wiped off the map when
it comes to consistent, healthful
and pleasant weather.
Hazelton Won
Hazelton won the hockey game
from New Hazelton here last
Saturday afternoon by a Score of
3-1. The game was slow on account of the water on the ice but
the visiting team made a very
good showing. There was a big
crowd and great interest was
taken in the game. New Hazelton was strongly represented
and they are looking for a return
game when the Hazelton bunch !
return from Telkwa to which
place they went on Monday
morning to play the Valley boys:
and to take part in the big cam-
aval on Wednesday night.

First Rain Fall
On Tuesday night the first rain
I for the season fell and it made a
big difference in the condition of
the roads which had up to then
been ideal for sleighing. On
Wednesday night and again
Thursday more rain fell and
sleighing will soon be gone unless
there is a lowering of the temperature in a few days. The
month of February has been ex-
; ceptionally mild and also very
pleasant, and it is hard to think
that the winter is over, although
such has been the case on more
than one occasion in the past.

Two Prospectors going to Turnagain
River to Look for Gold   Staked
by local boys
On Tuesday morning Duke
Han is sent a dog team to the
end of track where it was met
by a party who took the dogs
down to Prince Rupert. Some of I
the boys are staking Al. Young
and R. McDougall who are going
to the Stikine country prospecting
for gold. They will outfit at
Telegraph Point and go up to the
Turnagain River.
In the old days two old fellows!
went up  the  Stikine   and   discovered   good   placer   diggings.
During the stay one of the part-!
ners died and was buried there
and the other fellow came down
and he recently died in a hospital
in  Seattle.    Before  he died  he
gave a letter to a friend telling

NEW HAZELTON
Section 2
Since the decision of the Board of Railway Commissioners making the future town at New Hazelton, the sale of lots, both here and in Vancouver,
have been away beyond expectations.
Nearly all of the Business Houses in the
Old Town of Hazelton have Secured Lots
__;
And as the choice locations are being rapidly
picked up by outside people, those who had the
foresight to obtain the
best locations can consider
themselves fortunate as
we predict that in a very
few months some of these
will be worth three times
what has been paid for
them.
To you who have not
yet secured your lot let us
say:���This is the opportunity we have all been
waiting for���
- A UNITED TOWN -
Don't delay in securing
your lots as they are being
sold so rapidly that in a
week from now it will be
difficult to obtain a really
good location without paying someone else a profit.
You Must Have a Lot if you intend to continue in Business in this district.
DON'T PAY SOMEONE ELSE A PROFIT.    BUY NOW FOR YOURSELF AND
SAVE MONEY

GOOD HOTEL
BADLY NEEDED
Stated that License Will be Granted to
the First Good Hotel Erected
WHERE BUSINESS
WILL CENTRE
Supt. Haskins, of the Silver
Standard Mine has put several
men to work on the property
clearing the site for the machinery and getting things ready for
the commencement of spring
operations.
V. W. Smith's new residence
on Tenth Ave. is rapidly nearing
completion. The big fire place
will be done this week and the
interior is almost ready. As soon
as spring opens up Mr. Smith
will have the grounds fixed up
and laid out for lawn and garden.
Cohen & Zackon are preparing
to move their Sealey store to
New Hazelton and erect it along
side their present building. This
will give them a frontage of 40
feet. An arch will connect the
two buildings and when completed it will add very materially
to the appearance of Pugsley
street. It will also give them
lots of room for their business
which is rapidly increasing.
It is surprising the amount of
teaming that is now being clone
through this town. Although
most of the horses are still hauling from the end of track to
Sealey there are many teams going right through to the valley
and making this town their
stopping place. Carel's feed stables and barns are full every
night and the men also find good
sleeping accommodation in town.
C. F. Willis, the Hazelton
blacksmith and wagon builder,
was in town on Monday arranging for the erection of a building
for his business on Thirteenth
Ave. He expects to get opened
up in a very short time. This
will relieve the horsemen considerably. That there will be a big
business for him is sure as the
country is demanding more in
his line all the time.
Although the town is growing
rapidly and the mail matter is
steadily increasing there has been
nothing done yet to establish a
post office here so far as the
local citizens are concerned. It
is still necessary to walk ten
miles for the mail or have it
brought over and left at one of a
dozen places. The citizens are
getting pretty well sick of the
situation and think it high time
that a post office, even though a
temporary one, should be established.
Chief Engineer Van Arsdol has
received instructions to move his
headquarters from here to a
point farther east where he will
be in closer touch with the work.
The construction work is making
such progress that it is necessary
for the engineering staff to keep
moving. Last week Mr. Van
Arsdol went on a trip of inspection into the valley and also to
spy out a suitable place for their
new camp. It will likey be beyond the Bulkley summit. At
best it will be several months before the headquarters will be
moved as it will require some
time to get the buildings up.
In this town of New Hazelton
there is one of the best openings
in the province for a good hotel
���one that will accommodate the
travelling public with meals of
the better class and with beds,
baths, etc. There will be no
other place in the north that will
have as many visitors, or that
will have so many people staying
around for a week or two than
will New Hazelton. At the same
time there will be a transient
trade that will rival any other
town in the province. At the
present time there is a surprisingly large transient trade and it is
rapidly growing. It is now an
actual necessity and it is not saying too much to state that this
first year's business alone will go
a long way towards paying the
original cost of the structure.
The people of the town are all
anxious for a hotel and they will
to a man assist in every way
possible the party who will undertake the construction. It has
also been intimated to the Herald
that if a good house is put up
that there will be no trouble in
securing the licence. The authorities here will make a favorable
recommendation and there is no
reason to believe that the licence
will not be granted at an early
date.
Railways Centre at Red Deer
Red Deer, Alta , Feb. 15.-Six
railways operating through this
point in the early months of the i
i future would seem to assure the j
j position of Red Deer as the logi- j
cal supply centre for an area of
country extending at least 200
j miles both east and west.     The !
| railway development is already in i
progress, as is evidenced by the |
rapid advance of construction j
work on the new Moose Jaw Van-
| couver line  which is to have its j
; headquarters at Red Deer; on the!
I easterly line from Red Deer to
Sasktoon: on the Canadian Northern short line from Strathcona;
as well as on several other lines
whose rights of way are now being graded in the near vicinity. ]
Local real estate men and others
j
are laying their plans for a season
I of unprecedented activity.
Foot Races
Last Saturday just after noon !
Frank   Dewar and Scotty Brew
caused a lot of fun on the main
street   by  their   sensational 100
yds. dash.    The   race had  been
framed up the night before and
a large crowd gathered to see the
sprinters. In the first race Dewar
won but Scotty called for a second
heat as he was in the lead when
1 a couple of dogs interfered with
i him.    The second race was run
and  Scotty  won  by a couple of
yards.
Most of the contractors who
secured work on the new section
of the grading  have got  their
! new camps well under way. At
Burns  Lake both D. A. Rankin :
! and Dan Stewart are putting up
; their buildings and the contractors
1 on this side have also got men at
work.    Mr. Stewart is at present
jin Prince Rupert as he has not
been feeling well for some time.
iD. A. Rankin, A. L. McHugh
and John Bostrom were in town
on   business   several   days   this
, week arranging for supplies and
1 material for their camps.
Section One is today's choice- Business
naturally Grows to Meet Business-
- That is North and West
Where will the business of
New Hazelton centre is a question that is asked hundreds of
times every week. There is only
one answer and that is "where
the people build their stores,
offices, shops, etc." In New
Hazelton all the people have been
building in section one between
Eleventh and Thirteenth Aves.
and from the Railway over to
Pugsley street. Within that district is today located all the business of the town as well as
nearly all the homes. In addition
to this all the new buildings that
are under way or that are soon
to be started will be inside this
district. In a short time these
blocks will be thickly covered
with buildings. This means that
it will be a difficult matter, if at
all possible, to shift the business
district to any other part of the
townsite. The natural growth of
the town will of course cause the
business district to spread out,
but the present section will always be good.
All the mining property and
nearly all the agricultural land is
either north or west of the town
and of course the business for
the town will come from those
directions, and the business district will natural grow towards
the business which will cross
the Bulkley i'i ver by a high level
bridge and enter the town from
the north. Business will also
come from the west up the
Skeena river and along the Sealey road which now enters
New Hazelton almost in the
heart of the business section.
Like all new towns there must
first be more or less clearing,
grading and draining done before the business district can
expand to any great extent.
These are, however, simple matters in New Hazelton as there is
excellent natural drainage and
the soil is very easily worked.
Thus there is no reason why the
business district of New Hazelton should not grow north and
west to meet the business.

FRED W. HENNING. Manager
The shareholders of the Steamboat Mountain Gold Mines, Ltd.,
at a meeting held February lst
in the Vancouver Stock Exchange
unanimously decided to accept a
proposal placed before them by
Mr. C. D. Rand, fiscal agent of
the company, involving the undertaking of the development of
a silver-lead property in the Hazelton mining district.
Last summer, when it was discovered that the shareholders of
the company had a worthless property at Steamboat, Mr. Rand
proposed that if it was possible
to secure another property an
effort would be made to so develop
it that the losses of those who
had invested in Steamboat would
be recouped. Last night he announced that he believe he had
secured the sought for prospect
in the Surprise group, situated
about four miles from Hazelton,
and adjoining the well-known
Silver Standard property owned
by Messrs. Foley, Welch & Stewart, railway contractors, and now
being developed by them personally. Some interesting accounts
of the Surprise group were given
to the shareholders last night.
Prior to placing the proposal
before the meeting Mr. Rand announced that he wished to take
those present into his confidence
respecting his personal position
with regard to the transactions
in Steamboat stock. He mentioned that certain reports had been
industriously circulated to the
effect that he had not lost anything
on that stock. He then gave figures disproving this report, and
his statement, clear and concise,
put his position beyond question.
It was the unanimous sense of
the meeting that unless all shareholders of the Steamboat Mountain Gold Mines, Limited, subscribed to the proposal for the
development of the Surprise group
the work should not be carried on
by the old company, but should
be undertaken by a syndicate
formed for that purpose. It was
agreed that this syndicate should
be composed of as many of the
Steamboat shareholders as desired to participate. It was flatiy
declared, however, that only
those who subscribed to the new
call would be considered as having any interest whatever in the
new property. Unless every
Steamboat shareholder enters
into the deal it will be handled
by an independent syndicate.���

vein on the Standard on which
the shaft was sunk and from
which the ore gave such high
assays last fall, runs right into
the Surprise group.
This group was bonded last fall
from Billy Thompson, Louis Duncan and Robt. Haden. There are
three claims, the Surprise, Wonderful and Shamrock. On the
group there is a surface showing
of three feet of ore, mostly galena
and similar to the Silver Standard
ore. It was J. F. Cameron, of
Vancouver, who took the bond
for $25,000 and he is associated
with Mr. Rand in the Steamboat
Mountain  Gold  Co.   Plans   are
1 prepared for a big development
campaign this spring and as soon
as the preliminaries are completed in Vancouver the work  will
I be started here.

Vigor in Breeding Stock
One of the most essential thing's
in poultry work is to have and
keep the breeding stock in the
best of health. Where they are
vigorous and strong they will
give to their chicks power to
stand disease and make strong
birds. It is positively essential
to consider health in connection
with the raising of chicks year
after year.
In the first place we do not feed
the birds on stimulating rations.
They may respond for a time to
such feeding, but later on they
will fail to do as well as formerly
and they will not appear to be
as vigorous as when they were
younger. They have been forced
for egg production on rich foods,
with the result that their livers
and digestive organs are out of
order. They mope around and
do not care about working for
their food. Many times few
birds are fed heavily on table
scraps with the same results.
They get overfat for a time and
then appear sluggish and do not
respond when grain is thrown to
them. When your birds are in
the pink of condition and have
been fed on a proper ration, they
will respond quickly to the sound
of the feeder's voice, and make a
rush for the place of feeding.
They are alert and active and
begin at once to work for the
grain that has been thrown to
them. From such birds you will
get eggs that are not only fertile
but that will give good strong
chicks.    Many  times the dying
of chicks in the shell can be
accounted for by weakness in the
breeding stock.
Keep the breeders by themselves, and do not mix a lot of
birds together. These breeders
should be fed on bulky diet with
a lot of green food at ther command. They need iess heating-
food and more of the bulky food.
Give then cut clover or even good
clover hay. You will be surprised
to know how much of this they
will eat if given the chance. Feed
cabbages, beets and alfalfa in their
mashes. Wheat bran can be
used to advantage in making the
bulk for the mash.
Keep the quarters perfectly
sanitary. An accumulation of
filth in the breeding pen is positively injurious to the birds. Coal
ashes can be spread over the
dropping boards each day after
cleaning, and you will have a
clean place for roosting each
night. During the summer they
should have plenty of air at night
Open up the house and give them
the chance. During the winter
they should have good air with
plenty of ventilation. Puts lots
of muslin in front of the house.
Close, damp quarters sap the
vitality from the birds and unfit
them for breeding purposes.
The male in the breeding pen
should be a strong vigorous fellow.
Possibly you have seen roosters
fighting, and have noticed that
one was tired out and forced to
run away while the other was as
fresh as at the start. The male
bird should have staying powers,
which     speak   for    vigor   and
strength.
When you note that some of
your birds in the breeding pens
are not doing as well as you want
them to, take them out and tr_*at
separately for a time. Give them
the best of care and do not overfeed them. After a time put
them back with the rest. If they
come along all right, well and
good, but if not, then it is better
to take them out altogether. If
you have only the strong birds in
the pens, and feed them properly,
you will have no trouble about
the eggs hatching in the  spring.
Half Way House
The many friends of Frank W.
Hamann will be glad to learn
that he now has full possession
of the Half Way House, on the
Aldermere road. This place was
started last fall and it has enjoyed a large store of the patronage from the travelling public.
It is one of the best places in the
interior at which to stop, both
for man and beast. Frank will
undoubtedly continue to do a big
business.

States will bo delivered to President Francisco I. Madere and
then will be launched a movement to construct an automobile
highway from Hazelton, B. C,
the northernmost point of the
Pacific Coast to the City of Mexico
extending four thousand miles in
length.
Probably   no   automobile  trip
ever undertaken during the com-1
paratively short life of the gaso-
line vehicle  has done so much to
demonstrate  to   civilization   the'
value of the  modern  time and
distance  anihilator   as   has this
wonderful trip of the pathfinder
through a country hereto almost
unknown  except to a very few j
pioneers who recognizing almost
by Chester Lawrence)
at a glance the wonderful resources of the West Coast of
Mexico have spent millions of
dollars in mines and agriculture
and reaped tenfold.
The automobile has invaded
every portion of the globe and the
American tourist in his endless
search after entertainment has
driven his gasoline wagon through
every toll gate in Europe, Asia
and Africa and has left untouch-
the most picturesque country in
the world, the West Coast of
Mexico.
The " Examiner's " Cadillac
automobile is demonstrating beyond a doubt that it is possible
for an automobile to journey in
comfort from Los Angeles to the
City :>f Mexico. The "Examiner"
representative has been welcomed
all along the route by Americans
and Government officials who,
recognizing the value of a highway along the West Coast of
Mexico have lended every possible aid to the pathfinders.
Big Business for Bulkley Valley
W. H. Wark returned from the
Bulkley Valley Monday morning
and left on the stage for Prince
Rupert. He stated that he met
with great success in the valley
and he predicts a big business
there this coming summer.
The fishing industry at and near
Prince Rupert is to be developed
by old country capital in a manner
that will make that town one of
the world's famous fishing posts.
Sir George Doughty's son has
recently arrived from England
and went to Prince Rupert and
then over to Skidegate, on Queen
Charlotte Islands, where he will
prepare to open up the first plant
for the big company. It will be
a salmon cannery and the machinery is now on its way from the
old country. Plants will also be
put in therefor utalizingall kinds
of fish. The non-edible varieties
will be made into oil and fertilizer. The company will also erect
a large cold storage plant on
Porcher Island, in Prince Rupert
harbor for the treatment of halibut and other fish that are to be
shipped in a frozen condition.
Before the company is through
several million dollars will have
been invested in plants and boats.
Died In the Hospital
Alex. McLeod, who was employed at one of the construction
camps east of town died in the
Hazelton Hospital on Tuesday
morning. He was brought up
from Sealey last week suffering
from the D. T.'s and he was too
far gone for anything to be done
for him. Too much bad whiskey
and not a large enough police
force was the cause of the trouble.

������ IN BUYING BUSINESS LOTS ���
Be Sure you Buy in the Mercantile District.   At New Hazelton
that district is Section One���OUR Property
*
SECTION ONE - new hazelton
THE BUSINESS  DISTRICT
The best business property in every town is always some
distance away from the depot. This is the case in New
Hazelton.    Section One will be the Best Business Property.
The Hazelton people themselves have bought in Section
One and all who have started business in New Hazelton are in
Section One or just, across the line. Those who have planned
for early moving will be located in Section One.
The first Business District always remains a Business
District. It is next to impossible to move the district from
where it first started. It has started in Section One and that
Section is being Rapidly Built Up. The business will stay in
Section One and that is the place to buy.
The Northern Interior Land Company own Section One and
Section Three. The prices of lots are now as low as they will
ever be.   They are liable to advance any day.
Buy your Business Lots in Section One NOW. In another
year they will be more than doubled in price. This is your
opportunity. You missed Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton,
Vancouver, and other big western cities. Don't miss New
Hazelton. It is and will continue to be the distributing point
for the vast Northern Interior.
Prices of Lots Range from
$100 to $1200 each
These   Prices   are   only   good   for   a   short   time.
