LOCAL AND DISTRICT NEWS.
The str. Hazelton is expected
here tomorrow. On board are
C. F. Morrison, A. D. Strange and
A. E. Smith.
The officers of the ��� Distributor
expect to make at least one more
trip to Hazelton tnis fall, if the
water keeps up to a navigable
stage.
Frank Morse, vice president
and general manager of the G. T.
P., and a paj-ty of officials of the
road are expected to soon be at
the coast and will come to Hazel,
ton, the Skeena permitting.
A. E. Lawrence has returned to
Carman, Man., for the winter.   *
C. G. Harvey came in from the
Bulkley Valley Thursday evening.
Geo. Thomson, of the assessor's
office at Victoria, is in Hazelon on
a tour of inspection.
Samuel Gilmofe, A. St. Marie
and Thos. Crawford are recent
arrivals from Fairbanks, Alaska,
and will go into (he Ingineca
country.
W. H. Sharpe arrived from
Yorkshire, England, Thursday.
Mr Sharpe will locate in Hazelton and open a watch repairing
establishment.
Hazelton is not liable to go dry
this winter. One hundred and
five barrels of beer came up on
the Distributor and another hundred are at Kitselas, for the two
local hotels.
E. H. Fletcher, postoffice inspector for British Columbia, was
an arrival on the Port Simpson.
After inspecting the office here
he returned to the coast by the
same steamer.
Lem Broughton and N. D. McMillan returned to Bulkley Valley
a few days ago, bringing with
them one hundred head of beef
cattle and twenty-five work
horses. The stock was secured
in the district about Quesnelle.
Sealy & McKcnzie took the
stage over the road to Aldermere
this week for the first time, carrying the mail. They bought four
head of horses lately as a part of
the equipment for the stage and
more will be secured to have
sufficient number for next year's
business.
The Steamer Port Simpson left
for the lower river Friday morning with about thirty passengers,
among whom were the following:
J. C. Gwillim, A. E. C. Matthews, Henry White, W.W. Leach,
T. H. Sutherland, Jas. Brewer,
Andrew Keefe, Jonn Keefe, E.
Escalet, Hugh Grant, Harry Tanner, Wm Gallop, P. T. Childs,
and F. D. Rice.
H. Helgerson, fisheries commissioner for this district, and J.
K. Ashman are leaving for Ba-
bine today, where some work,
looking to the improvement of
the channel in Babine river, is to
be done. At the present time
there are some rock obstructions
in the river which prevent salmon
having free access to their natural spawning grounds, It is proposed to remove these during the
coming winter. Similar work is
in progress along the Copper
river.
The str. Distributor of the G.
T. P. river service arrived last
evening, making the trip from
Kitselas in one day. On board
were about thirty tons of freight
for R. S. Sargent, smaller shipments for W. J. Larkwortny and
C. V. Smith; also about a ton of
paper stock for the Herald. This
is the first time the Distributor
has appeared on the upper river.
Her passenger accommodations
are not so large as those of the
Port Simpson but she seems to be
more efficient as a freight carrier.
There are no monogramed window * at several dollars a pane or
fancy wood work, features which
made the cost of the Simpson so
high.
A. W. Corner, of Kispiox, was
a caller atihe Hercad office Thursday.
B. M. Rogers was in town yesterday. He states that, the road
gang is now at Morricetown, a
distance of thirty miles from
Hazelton. The bridge across
Porphyry creek has been completed and the bridge across Indian creek, two miles this side of
Morricetown, is about finished.
Many complaints are being
made about the way farming
machinery has been shipped up
the river this summer. One time
five mowers were brought to Hazelton and the cutter bars left at
Port Essington. Nearly every
shipment is short some important
part. Sonu, of the rods for the
threshing hiachine are still mis-
'sing; no plows have been received
and the farmers seem to be getting the worst of it generally.
Geo. H. Pope, G. T. T. right
of way agent, was an arrival on
the Distributor last evening and
left today for the' Bulkly Valley,
accompanied by Peter Talbot who
is in charge of the supply depot
at Hazelton for the railroad. Mr.
Pope has been expected in this
part of the country for a lone
time. He will deal with the owners of alienated crown lands,
whose owners are to receive compensation for righ! of way privileges.
J. C. Gwillim and A. E. C.
Matthews came in from the hills
and after a short stay in town
took the boat down the river.
Mr. Gwillim is a representative
of the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Co. of Canada, operating the smelters at Trail, the War
Eagle and Centre Star mines at
Rosslaiid and the St. Eugene
Conslidatcd mines at Moyie, in
the Kootenay district. Mr. Matthew's father is president of the
Consolidate d Mining and Smelting Company.
Pat Higgins arrived in town
Friday from the Babine mountains, where he has been doing
some development work on claims
located about the middle of August. A shaft was put down
twelve feet and the vein at the
bottom shows six and a half feet
wide, of which two feet is solid
galena and the remainder concentrating ore. Stripping on the
surface has shown the had up
for a distance of 43 feet. On an
other claim, joining the galena
showing, a character of ore is
found which seems to he a puzzle,
as no one seems to be able to define the character of it by sight.
Mr. McNaughton of Francis
Lake has been placed in charge
of the trail work between Pleasant Valley and the south side of
Francis lake. The work on this
sectoh will be confined to putting
in the bridge? and making as
good a trail as possible. Arrangements will be made as soon as
possible to secure a man to take
charge of the sleigh road from
the north side of Francis lake to
connect with the road along the
telegraph line, by way of Burns
ake. This piece of road is about
twenty-five miles in length and
will be put in such shape that it
can be used as a sleigh road this
coming winter, to be improved
into a wagon road next year.
Herald Job printing is the best.
MACHINERY FOR
THE INGINECA
Frank Perry and A. M. Marks Take
in Large Outfit to be Used
In Prospecting.
Frank Perry and A. M. Marks
arrived on the Port Simpson
Thursday with part of the outfit
of machinery which they will
take into the Ingineca the coming
winter. Tne remainder of the
machinery, on the Distributor,
arrived today. They now have
twenty head of horses and arrangements are being made to
secure fifteen more. If possible
they will pack to Babine lake by
horses and from there the plant
is to go by d. g team, the reminder of the . distance. They had
planned to have the plant taken
in by horses the entire distance,
even if the horses had to be sacrificed and used for dog meat,
but owing to the delay they encountered in coming up the river
this idea had to be abandoned.
Both of the above named men
were in the Ingineca country last
winter, Perry being of the original discoverers of the district.
They left here for the coast the
latter part of July. While there
a close corporation was formed
among friends and backers, capitalized for $600,000. No stock is
offered for sale and they propo je
to do all their mining in the
gravels of the Ingineca, and not
in the pockets of the public. The
men behind the proposition are
prepared to carry it to a finish.
Mr. Marks is a man of vast experience in placer mining in Australia. Alaska and the United
States. At the present time
large placer mining operations
are being conducted at Grant's
Pass, Ore., in which the people
behind the present company are
interested and of which Mr.
Marks was for n lopg time in
charge.
McConnell Creek will be the
scene of operations, on ground
located by Perry and Marks, and
other claims since purchased.
The surface gravels are known to
contain gold in sufficient quantity
to mean a big thing when worked
by machinery. The first move to
be made when the machinery is
set up <>n the ground, which is
expected to be about the first of
next March, will be to sink to
bedrock and crosscut the the
channel. If expectations are
realized and a rich pay streak is
found, it will but add value to a
proposition which is already considered assured of success. With
a pump to take care of the water
there will be no difficulty irwsink-
ing.
The total weight of machinery
is about eight tons, and it consists of a belt driven centrifugal
pump, steam engine, water tube
boiler (knock-down), equipment
for machine and blacksmith shops
and everything necessary to thoroughly test and prospect the
ground. Plans for the future entail the establishment of an hydraulic plant.
The suceess of this enterprise
means a great deal to the country. Not only will employment
be given to a number of men at
good wages but prospecting will
be stimulated and other large
enterprises encouraged to come
in and take a hand rat the work,
SOME GOOD ASSAYS.
The hew mining camp, which
by common consent is becoming known as Nine Mile
Mountain, has shown nothing
new in the way of discoveries in
the last week. Tuesday's mail
brought returns from ore sent
out by v-'tvend parties. The
"Duke" and the "Duchess," discovered and located by E. L.
Crawford, which he owns in connection with others, shows the
best values up to date. The total
values are shown to be $209.35,
���silver 340.5 ounces, gold $1.60,
and lead $40.76. An average
sample, taken from several
different places along the lead of
the ''Silver Cup," gave values as
follows: Gold $15.20, silver 85.5
ounces, and lead 44 p.c.
These values are sufficient to
demonstrate that the claims are
what is known as a "grass roots"
proposition. Ore will commence
to come out of the ground with
the first blow of the pick, and,
even under present conditions,
will pay handsomely. Both the
Hudson's Bay steamers and the
Grand Trunk boat Distributor
quote a rate on ore from Hazelton to the coast of $6 per ton.
From Port Essington or Prince
Rupert shipments can be made to
any of half a dozen different
smeltery and the best rate obtainable can be taken advantage of.
Immediate steps will be taken to
have work carried on all winter
on one of the properties at least.
The leads are narrow but show
continuity, in most cases, of several hundred feet, and being cut
by canyons at a depth of a hundred or more feet, offer easy access by tunnel.
PROGRESS ON G.T.P. GRADE.
Good progress is reported on
the grade of the G. T. P. between
Prince Rupert and Kitselas.
Most of tne camps are working
full handed and what men are
needed at the ethos have been
sent for. Reports from the coast,
claiming that only a pretense was
beieg made at grading the line,
seem to be without foundation.

HAZELTON'S MAIL SERVICE.
That the proposed mail service
is not up to the requirements of
this district is the unanimous
opinion of the residents. On account of the expense connected
with the hauling of the mail up
and down the Skeena River on
toboggans there would be no complaint about the frequency of the
service if the quantity taken eacn
trip were not so small that a large
part will have to be left at Kiti-
mat each time, "causing a constantly growing surplus, that by
the time navigation opens in the
spring will amount to tons. This
country is used to a poor mail service. But to make it worse by
continuing alio same service and
the same quantity limit, in the
face of a rapidly growing population is to cause wonder whether
we are Canadians living in Canada, If the post office department would come out of its last
year's hibernation before it is
time to go to sleep agaiii it might
discover that there is such a
place as the Bulkley Valley. It
might find out that a thousand
tons of merchandise is coming
up the Skeena River this season
and that there are people enough
in the country to consume it all.
The only redeeming feature a-
bout the winter mail service is,
tnat perhaps it is better than the
summer service afforded by tne
Hudson's Bay Co.'s steamboats.
In the winter a mail is assured
twice a month. In the summer
when it arrives it is distributed
and that is all anyone knows
about it. In the early part of the
summer we had mail for over a
month at one time, and the last
mail to leave Hazelton was August 19th until the boat went down
river this week. The local postmaster did succeed in having a
mail brought up the river by canoe from Kitselas. The only way
a letter could be sent out of the
country during this time was by
men going down the river by
canoe, to be mailed at Port Essington. This only afforded relief to the people of Hazelton, a
small fraction of the total population of the district. The Hudson's Bay Co. cannot be blamed
for this state of affairs, as they
carry the mail for a nominal sum
and only agree to deliver mail
when their boats are running.
The winter service last year
cost $350 per trip or $750 a month
for five months. Is this an ex-
horbitant sum? Will we bankrupt the federal treasury by our
unreasonable demands in asking
that all our mail be brought to us
with a reasonable frequency?
The people of this district know
that the receipts do not equal the
expenditure. They never for a
moment suppose that the post
offices along the Skeena should
show a profit. This is one of the
"outlying" districts, vast in extent and sparsely populated.
Some of the pioneers travel fifty
miles for their mail instead of
having it brought to their doors
by a uniformed carrier. They
are not asking any sympathy because they are pioneering in this
country, nor do they complain of
their lot. All they want is
simple justice in the matter of a
mail service which is being denied them by the arrangements
for the coming winter.
COMING U. S. EECTIONS.
As the time for the general
elections in the United States approaches the interest in the campaign increases. As is usual,
both parties are sure of success.
As a general thing a period of
hard times causes the party in
power to be defeated. But there
are peculiarities about the situa
tion this year which make it different from that following other
panics. The great personal popularity of President Roosevelt,
coupled with the belief that the
panic of last fall was brought on
by the enemies of Roosevelt,
seeking to cast discredit upon his
administration, if not indeed to
throw the whole blame for the
hard times on his shoulders, will
go a long way toward offsetting
any tendency toward deflection
from the ranks of the Republican
party.
William H. Taftis the administration candidate, the personal
choice of President Roosevelt.
Out of all the brilliant men who
surrounded Roosevelt in his official life, Taft was the one chosen
to carry on the work, in fact it
might be said, trained for it for
the last four years.
William Jennings Bryan, candidate for the third time on the
Democratic ticket, will be considered one of the great men of
his time whether he is ever president or not. He appears certain
to carry more states than did
Parker, especially in the West.
But unless one of those sudden
changes take place, so common in
American politics, it looks as
though Taft would be elected by
a comfortable majority.
NEW BRITISH COLUMBIA.
The following is t&ken from a
recent issue of the Victoria Col-
nist;
Mr. Lisle I. Abbott is a lawyer of
Omaha, and he has been up in what we
call New British Columbia. When he
got back to Spokane he told the Chronicle of that city what he thought of that
country, and we quote his words:
' Roughly speaking this marvelous valley contains about 200,000 acre3 of
arable land entirely surrounded by
mountains, Mr. Abbott is quoted as
saying. The soil is a highly productive
white silt, entirely free from sand or
grit of any kind, s;i much so that when
placed between the teeth none is perceptible.
From reliable information obtained as
I have detailed, the following statements may be considered conservative;
Outside of two or three days each
winter tho thermometer does not fall
below zero. The snowfall is generally
about eighteen to twenty inches, coming about the first of December and
going about the first of March. Small
grain is planted ih April and ripens In
August. The rainfall is ample for all
crops and comes during the growing
season. The summer temperature
ranges from eighty-five to one hundred,
but even at the highest point the heat
is not oppressive. The nights are always cool. The autumn is warm and
late, killing frosts coming about the
tent!' or fifteenth of October.
Inside of two years this valley will be
reached by the main line of the transcontinental Grand Trunk Pacific now
building both ways toward it. Milling
and timber interests of fabulous value
3urround it. When the iron whistle
awakens the echoes of modern commerce along the virgin shore of the Ne-
chaco the door of opportunity will swing
to those adventurous spirits who shall
early hear and heed the "Call of the
Wild."
We do notknowjust what part of the
country Mr. Abbott is describing, because we think there is more tillable
land in the Neehaco than lie speaks of.
He probably refers only to the parts of
the valley which he visited. A country
of which a disinterested observer can
speak in such high terms is certainly
one of great possibilities, and its opening to settlement will mean much for
the province generally, and especially
for those parts of it which art? put in
railway connection with it.
If Mr. Abbott had continued his
journey and returned by way of
Hazleton he would have had much
more to *ell about than the Neehaco Valley. The whole route of
the G.T.P., from the Rocky Mts.
to tne Pacific Ocean, lies in an agricultural country. The description of Neehaco Valley, with a
few details changed, might have
answered for several ocher portions of Omineca District. New
British Columbia has other valleys than Neehaco and one American syndicate owns over'200,000
acres in that valley.
EXHIBITS SHOULD BE READY.
From time to time the Herald
has called attention to the fact
that an ehxibit of the products of
this section was to be made at the
at New Westminster and Vancouver. The time for sending the
collection has arrived and only a
a scanty portion of it is yet at
Hazelton. The collection from
Bulkley Valley has not arrived
and must take its chance on a
later boat. Telegrams wore sent
to Aldermere this week to hurry
on whatever they had to send
and an effort will be made to have
the last of the exhibit ready for
shipment by the end of next
week. Plenty of time was given
to have made a very complete collection of all products, both agricultural and mineral. Some very
nice specimens of ore and farm
products have been brought to
the government office here, but
the larger part, from the Bulkley
Valley district, has deen depended upon to make the showing all
it should be. It will be unfortunate if the chance to place before
visitors at these fairs the possibilities of the district is allowed
to lapse because of any lack of
attention. If any readers of this
paper have anything which is
worthy of a place in the collection,
no time should be lost in sending
it t0 the government office at
Hazelton.
THE GREAT (OLD REEF
William Sloan Points Out Danger of
Admitting. Orientals.
Below are a few extracts from
a speech of William Sloan, M.P.y
made in the house at Ottawa last
winter,' while speaking on the
oriental exclusion question. In
view of their importance to this
constituency they are' reprinted
that the voters may know where
ne standi on the subject:
''We are just rounding off'the
first century of British dominion
on tlie northwest coast of America. In that, briel space of
time, through the" -indifference
of i m o e r i a 1 statesmanship,
we have lost large are n's of
territory and coast line both on
the south and north of what we
now hold, and my firm conviction
is, in view of past history and
present conditions, that unless
there is a complete reversal of
policy, time will see our present
possessions of British Columbia
from the Rocly Mountains westward to the Pacific Ocean become
a colony and ultimately a possession, of a united orient.
"The All-Red line, from which
we expect Bo much, is a bond
drawing together the outposts of
the British dominions. It narrows
to a slender thread in the defiles
of the Rockies, Guard well, then,
the west; fill it with people who
will be loyal to our ideals of national life. Guard well the strategic position, which is not only of
Dominion, but of Empire.
"England has made an alliance
with this new world power, but
this alliance and all other treaties
of an Eurasian complexion can
never endure. They can at best
possess all the elements of expediency. They can never possess
the elements of permanence or
stability. It h impossible; it is
impracticable,'" Nay more, it is
unnatural. AJ individuals the
races do not Iftffl never Will assimilate."
Enormous Body of Ore Extending
North From Tacla Lake.
Although not generally known,
there is in British Columbia a
body of gold ore which, in point
of size is the largest in the world,
far discounting the great reefs of
South Africa. Tales of this enormous body of ore have been told
as a romance in the minihg camps
of the northwest where miners
gathered for gossip. It was no
secret among the earliest seekers
of placer gold. Some one of the
men who made the journey into
the Omineca River diggings thirty or forty years ago may have
been the discoverer of the great
lode and since he first told the
tale of its extent it has been the
the subject of dreams. Was
there not somewhere in the miles
of its extent some chute of phenomenal richness, or at least of
such value that it could be: worked at a profit? The question is
unanswered. Except for a short
distance along Bear Lake nothing
like prospecting has ever been
attempted. But in that region,
where the outcrop has been described, as a mountain of quartz,
it has been sampled a good many
times and at least one well equipped expedition has gone in to explore and prospect the deposit.
In years past many claims have
been stakad but the locators,
overcome by the tremendous difficulties presented by the transportation problem and the low grade
of the ore, were' compelled to let
their claims lapse. Some of them
are here it the country still, ready
to restake their claims whenever
there is any movement in that
direction.     .        . ���
Beginning away up north near
Bear Lake, and some say still
farther north, this.most gigantic
of all lodes extends -southwards,
passing to the east of Bear Lake,
where it crops out ih bold bluffs
standing three, four and even five
hundred feet high. On south
ward into the watershed of the
Driftwood River which it crosses
and still on till at last it terminates twenty-five miles southwest of the head of Talca Lake.
The known distance between the
farthest croppings is over one
hundred miles and the lowest assay that is known to have been
made yielded one. dollar and
eighty cents to the ton in gold.
Most of the assays have,shown a
value of about three dollars per
ton. There are streaks which it
is claimed will return from six to
ten dollars to the ion and one
man reports an assay of thirty
dollars. Three years ago an expedition went in to prospect, taking with them a cyanide outfit.
They did not attempt to secure
any holdings, as the values were
considered to be too low. One
other expedition that went in
took tneir samples to Vancouver
for tests which apparently were
satisfactory, as on telegraphed
instructions claims were located.
The head of this party, Mr. Mc-
Kinnon, died in Vancouver the
day he was to have left for the
north, which put a stop to operations.
The lode itself is a conglomerate and from what is learned
from prospectors is apparently
the remains of what was once a
placer deposit, covered up by the
tremendous lava flows which once
inundated this country, and again
brought to the surface by an upheaval of nature or by glacial
erosion.
As remarked above there are
streaks whicn are known to be
of greater value than the general
run of rock. With the comple-.
tion of the G.T.P. and the conse*
quent steamboat service to the
head of Tacla Lake, mining in
that country wquld not be too expensive for even a low grade ore.
''Now, sir," began the smart K. C,
' 'you say you discharged the plaintiff
from your service because he was somewhat addicted to liquor. Is that correct?"
. "It is," answered the defendant.
"Good!" said 'the K. C. "You do
not consider it advantageous to yourself
that your employees should be devotees
qf Bacchus?"
"That is so."
"Now kindly tell the gentlemen of
the jury���do you drink, yourself?"
"That is my business!" retorted the
defendant, angrily.
"Quite so!" sssented the K.C. sauve-
ly. "And have you any. other business?" ��� .
"Mrs. Irons,'.' complained the boarder
at the foot of the table, "this mutton
has a woolly taste;"
"I'm glad it has," snapped the landlady. "The last time I gave you mutton you said it was horse meat.���Chicago Tribune.
