Forestry Plans
The organization of the forestry service in this district is
nearly complete. Omineca district, which is in charge of Forester R. E. Allen, is to have three
divisions, with a ranger in
charge of each, W. H. Larmer
being responsible for the central
division, with headquarters in

or three weeks, when there will
will be feed for horses along the
pack trails, there will be an influx of miners and prospectors
into the Omineca and Manson
Creek, Groundhog coalfields, and
other outlying parts of the dis- j
trict where minerals and coal
have been discovered. There is
every reason to believe that the
discoveries of the coming season
will be as important as those of
any year in the past, since there
will be more men in the field and
a much larger stretch of country
will be covered.
The next shipment of ore from
the Harris Mines will be made
before the end of the month, and
will consist of twenty-five tons.
As the ore which is now being
taken out of number three vein

BULKLEY VALLEY A
SPLENDID DISTRICT
Returning on Thursday from
his first visit to the Bulkley
Valley, Government Agent Hoskins was most enthusiastic in
speaking of that great farming
section. "I had heard a great
deal about the Bulkley Valley,"
he said to The Miner, ','but I was
agreeably surprised to see the
extent of good agricultural land,
which requires only a moderate
amount of development to become
one of the best districts of the
province for dairying, mixed
farming,   and   the  growing  of

have been returned from the ordnance department, and as the
range and targets are now in
excellent condition, regular practices will be held on the usual
days.
Preference Would Be
Violation of Treaty
Washington, May 5:���The British government has joined the
nations in protest against that
portion of the tariff bill which
extends a preferential difference
of five per cent on goods imported in American bottoms. One
of the first acts of Sir Cecil
Springs-Rice, the new British
ambassador, was to call the attention of the state department
to this provision as in violation
of the existing treaty of trade
and commerce between America
and Great Britain.
It is understood that the Democratic tariff managers in the
house, who were at first disposed
to permit the senate to deal with
this question, it being one involving treaty relations, which belong to the upper house, have
recognized the force of the objections that have accumulated
from all quarters, and will themselves remove the objectionable
provision by an amendment
when the administrative section
ofthe bill containingitis reached.
DESTRUCTIVE PUNS
BF SUFFRAQETTES
London, May 5:���There is
great interest in the police court
proceedings against the suffra
gettes' leaders held on charges of
conspiracy under the malicious
damage act, which were resumed
at Bow street today. Archibald
Bodkin, the prosecuting counsel for the treasury, in opening
the case described the law of
conspiracy, and said the defendants had been meeting together
constantly. He referred to
"General " Mrs. Drummond as
a "violent and an unscrupulous
woman."
He said Clayton, the chemist,
in whose possession were found
documents describing a plan of
campaign for burning dowr
buildings in London, had put his
brains at the disposal of the women for carrying out crimes and
producing what their own paper
described as a " reign of terror "
in London.
Another letter read by Mr.
Bodkin referred to a proposal by
the suffragettes to damage stockyards in Great Britain. The
cost of the scheme, $100,000.
was probably the reason why it
was not immediately accepted.
The letter said:
" The result of the job would
be splendid."
When Mrs. Beatrice Saundeis
was arrested and searched at the
militant headquarters she attempted to destroy a letter giving details of the investments
made by the Social and Political
Union, in foreign bonds. A
number of cheques for "very
large amounts " were found.

Captors of Scutari Allow
Powers to Decide Question

NICHOLAS JAY RESIGN
Abdication of Montenegrin King Expected���Members of Albania's Provisional Government Assassinated ���
Essad Pasha Remains Nominal Ruler
Cettinje, May 5:���King Nicholas, of Montenegro, decided today to evacuate the fortress of
Scutari in reaponse to the demand of the European powers.
London, May 6:���The information comes from Constantinople
on what is regarded as unquestionable authority that King
Nicholas, of Montenegro, will abdicate his throne very soon, and
in fact, is making preparations
to that end. It is believed this
will much simplify the perplexing situation as to Scutari.
Berlin, May 5:���The assassination of the Albanian provisional
minister of works and minister
of justice is reported in despatches from Brindisi.
It is believed that no concessions are being asked by Montenegro for evacuating Scutari.
The Montenegrins have decided
to evacuate at the request of the
powers.
It has been thought that Essad Pasha, who after leaving
Scutari assumed the sovereignty
of Albania, as an influential Albanian with a strong following
and the prestige a gallant defence of Scutari, might be more
acceptable to Albanians than a
foreign prince, and that if allowed to retain his self-chosen post,
he might be inclined to make
territorial concessions which
would compensate Montenegro
for the loss of Scutari and satisfy European claims.
"Free Speech" Riot
London, May 5: ���A free speech
demonstration in Trafalgar
Square yesterday culminated in
a riot. Among the speakers was
"Fighting Joe " Martin, formerly of British Columbia. Considerable fighting occurred and
many arrests were mp.de. Order was restored only when Keir
Hardie, the Socialist leader, appealed to the crowd to disperse.
POPULAR BANKER
GOESJO RUPERT
J. H. Hetherington, accountant
in the Union Bank here for the
last three years, has been transferred to the Prince Rupert office and left on Thusday for the
coast city. His departure from
Hazelton will be generally regretted. He is prominent in athletics, holding the northern B. C.
100-yards championship and having beaten all comers at 220-
yards. In football and other
sports he is also capable of holding his own. He will be difficult
to replace as secretary of the
athletic association and secretary-
treasurer of the fire brigade.
Mr. Hetherington is popular in
business and social circles, and it
is to be hoped that his removal
from this district will be only
temporary. On the eve of his
departure he was presented by
the bank staff with a handsome
dressing cape.

the
Presidenl Wilson and the Democrats are engaged in a serious
effort to tear down, or at least reduce in height, Ihe tariff wall
which successive Republican administrations have reared for the
protection of wool and sugar producers and those engaged in simi-
lar "infant industries." As was fully expected, there has arisen
a loud chorus of protest, in which the voices of the wool and sugar
men are joined by those of the cotton manufacturers, the paper-
makcrs, California fruit raisers, Minnesota millers, Texas cattleman and many olhers who fear their interests may suffer if the
industries in which they are engaged are thrown open to foreign
competition.
The leaders of the majority in Congress are confident that the
program of revision, as passed by the Democratic caucus, will be
carried out, notwithstanding the possibility that some ofthe Democrats, under pressure from the interests affected, may co-operate
with the opposition. The President is unbending in his demand
for free wool at once and free raw sugar in three years. These
provisions, as Mr. Wilson's personal contribution to the Tariff Bill,
are regarded as the crux of the situation, and their repudiation
would be a slap at the administration. The wool men evidently see
little prospect of victory on the main issue, and are making a campaign for the removal of the tariff on manufactures of wool, arguing that the placing of wool on the free list without treating manufactured goods the same would not cheapen woolen goods.
Replying to the opposition arguments, the advocates of reduction contend that the removal of the duty on wool, sugar and other
commodities will not destroy the industries affected ; but that if it
does, industries that cannot stand on their own feet after so many
years of coddling and protection have no economic excuse for
existence.
The outcome of the battle, which is likely to lead to the free
admission into tlie United States of many Canadian products, will
be watched v. ith interest on this side of the boundary line.

New Launch For Naas
Vancouver, May 1: A fine
launch has been built here for
the carriage of mails, passengers
and freight on the Naas river.
Mail Carrier Myers is shipping it
north on the Princess Mary,
which will also take a party of
pre-emptors to the Naas on May
seventh.
Victoria, May 5:���An additional sale of timber recorded by the
forests department illustrates
the active intention of the minister of lands that deception in
the matter of pre-emption shall
not be tolerated, and if attempted
will bring swift punishment.
Lands containing timber of more
than eight thousand feet to the
square acre are classed as timbered lands, and as such are not
open to pre-emption in the ordinary course for farming purposes. On the north side of
Cardero Channel there is one
piece of land comprising 145
acres which a short time ago was
taken up as a pre-emption. The
pre-emptor very shortly afterwards disposed of the timber
upon his as-yet-un-crown-granted
holding, at a price of one dollar
per thousand, and straightway
returned to town to enjoy himself on the results of his little
speculation, displaying no further interest in his property as a
future farm. Investigation was
at once ordered, a cruise showed
the timber to run from fifteen to
thirty-five thousand feet to the
ancl I acre, and the pre-emption was
jaj] cancelled and timber already cut
seized. Seven hundred thousand
feet had already been cut and
removed. The remainder on the
holding was estimated at 1,050,-
000 feet, but actually scaled 920.-
000 feet, and this has now been
sold at $1.50 per thousand in addition to the royalty, the purchasing firm assuming also all
charges and expenses incidental
to the seizure. In addition there
was also sold to the same firm all
standing timber on the extinguished pre-emption, thiscompris-
ing approximately 780,000 feet,
almost wholly fir, at $1.00 per
M. and royalty, the sale being
made conditional upon the whole
being logged off within two years.

A. Stenerson, of Prince Rupert,
was a visitor in Hazelton on
Wednesday.
Allan Johnson has gone to Second Cabin, as telegraph lineman,
in place of L. T. Kenny, transferred to Fifth Cabin,
W. Croteau has been elected
secretary of the Bulkley Valley
Farmers' Institute, in succession
to T. J. Thorp, whose growing
business prevented his retention
of the office. Much of the success which has attended this useful organization is due to the
efforts of Mr. Thorp, and his
resignation was accepted with
regret.
The district around Francois
and Ootsa lakes has always produced excellent furs; but the
last season will rank as a record
one. Some half dozen valuable
silver foxes have been brought
out, as well as a large number of
marten. Of the latter, 116 were
brought into Hazelton by two
trappers, who had previously
sent out seventy.
A windstorm on Thursday
caused serious damage to the
government telegraph line. Between Hazelton and Moricetown
nine miles of line was stripped
from the poles by falling timber.
11 Linemen are busy repairing the
