HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, MAY 24, 1913
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
GREEKS FIGHT
Former Allies Now at War
Over Disputed Territory
In Balkan District
TWO SERIOUS BATTLES
Alleged Violation by Bulgarians of Recently - Defined Neutral Zone Pro-
voices Hostilities a t Saloniki ��� N o
Advantage Gained by Either Side
London, May 23:���Dissension
between the Balkan allies has
culminated in open hostilities.
The Bulgarians and Greeks are
at war, and ai-e now engaged in
their second serious conflict, in
the vicinity of Saloniki. The
first engagement, fought on both
sides with great fury, lasted a
whole day. Losses on both sides
were heavy, there being apparently no advantage gained by
either of the combatants.
The casus belli, as stated by
the Greeks, was the alleged violation, by the Bulgarians, of the
recently established neutral zone.
The Indian Commission
Victoria, May 23:���The Indian
commission has completed its
organization and is ready to begin its work. C. H. Gibbons is
to share the secretarial work
with Bergeron. On Monday the
commissioners will visit Cowichan
reserve, going to Nanaimo on
Wednesday and afterwards visiting Comox. Further than this the
itinerary has not been arranged.
Ottawa, May 20:���R. P. Green,
M. P., has made the following
statement:
"The   Indian   Commissior,   is
already at work, and has a huge
task before it. there being no less
than  about  eleven  hundred reserves   in   the  province,   all of)
which will have to be visited in !
order to ascertain  which should j
be withdrawn from the Indians !
and thrown open to the public, j
The expectation is that a large j
proportion of the reserves will be
released; and as it is well known j
that these occupy the best loca- [
tions in the vicinity of the chief
centers of white settlement, and
that nearly every reserve consists of the  finest  agricultural
land in that vicinity, it will  be
seen that a large area of land
will be made productive as the
result of the work of the committee. "
More Surveyors Here
J. L. King, B. C. L. S., is in
charge of a party including L. S.
Main, C. A. Stewart, S. F. Mitchell, W. S. Ellis, T. H. N. Whiting and Ed. Ferrara, which arrived on Wednesday to undertake extensive surveys near
Hazelton for Harold Price, C. E.,
who is expected to arrive shortly
with another party. Mr. Price
will have three parties in the
field this season. McMillan's
party, which has been here all
winter, being also engaged in
local surveys.
Mr. King states that two government survey parties for work
in Groundhog, under T. H. Taylor and 0. Wing, will soon arrive
In Hazelton.
Federal Estimates
Reach High Figure
Ottawa, May 22:���For the first
time in the history of Canada,
the estimated expenditure passes
the two million dollar mark.
The total supplementary estimates for the current fiscal year
are $23,500,000. With the main
estimates of $179,000,000 this
makes a total anticipated expenditure of $202,600,000 apart from
the railway subsidies, which are
yet to be brought down.
For government elevators in
the west the sum of four millions will be expended. Appropriations for Vancouver total
$300,000. There are three items
for Prince Rupert: a drill hall to
cost $35,000; a re vote of $24,000
for the quarantine station,..and
$100,000 for a public building.
New Hazelton is to have a public building *to cost $7,000.

big fire on monday
The most serious fire in the
history of the Bulkley Valley occurred on Monday afternoon,
when the Chicken Lake establishment of Broughton & McNeil
was burned. The flames started
in the hotel kitchen, in some unknown manner, and spread
through the hotel and store with
such rapidity that the employees
had barely time to save the books
and cash register. Gus Timmer-
meister, the manager, was in
Smithers at the time. Fearing
that forest fires might reach the
buildings, he had employed several men for some weeks in clearing the timber around the place.
Starting in the interior of the log
building, the fire burned so
fiercely that even though the
clearing crew was at hand nothing
could be done to check the flames.
ln the destruction of the hotel,
store and warehouse, with their
contents, the loss was over
$18,000. The bunkhouse was
saved. Insurance will cover
about half the loss. The safe,
when opened, was found to have
kept its contents, including a
considerable sum in bills, in
good condition. With characteristic energy the firm immediately
made arrangements to resume
business at the same stand as
soon as supplies could be brought I
in from the main establishment
at Aldermere.
When The Miner represantative
left Mr. Timmermeister was preparing to do a little placer work
in search of a large diamond
which he had left in his room.

Harris Mines Ore
The good ore recently encountered in the Harris Mines is still
in evidence in the face of the
north drift on the 185-foot level
on No. 3 vein. The last 95 feet
of the drift shows high grade
ore, which is now 14 inches wide.
There is fine ore in the winze also. Water coming into the
winze in the last few days makes
work slower. The showing at
this level is even greater than
any in the upper workings, and
the Harris boys are naturally
much pleased with developments.

ANTI-JAPANESE ACT
HAS BECOME LAW

overwhelming majority over the
remonstrances of President Wilson and Secretary Bryan. The
act will go into effect ninety
days from date or on August 17.
Governor Johnson in signing the
bill gave out the following statement:
"I repeat what I have before
said, that California, for the
first time in its history, has an
anti-alien law. Any man who
wishes another kind of law, may
consistently invoke the initiative.
No man who really wishes the
anti-alien law will sign a referendum as to this law.
"If another law is sought it
may be presented by means of
the initiative and in the meantime the present law will be in
operation. To tie up the present
law means no law until November, 1914.
AN ELECTION
IS
Senate Appears Likely to Kill
Naval Bill and Government May Dissolve Houee
PREMIER WARNS SENATE
Says Upper House Can Never be Superior to People���Immense Crowd Hears
Borden Speak i n Toronto ��� Senate
May Also Kill Highways Act
Ottawa, May 21:���Interest in
the naval controversy centers in
the senate and there is much
speculation as to the probable
action of the upper house
in dealing with the Borden
measure. The belief is growing
that the Liberal majority in the
chamber will kill the bill. In
such an event the government is
likely to call an early election,
possibly within two months, according to some Conservatives.
The Liberal senators have considered the bill in caucus, but if
they have decided upon a course
of action they have been successful in keeping their own counsel.
In a great Imperialist speech,
delivered before an immense
crowd at Toronto on Monday
night, Premier Borden said the
senate is not, never has been,
and never shall be above the
people.
Ottawa, May 22:���It is now
said that the Liberal senators
have determined to amend the
naval bill in sunh a manner as to
make its acceptance by the government impossible. The upper
house is also likely to kill the
highways act.
Ottawa, May 23:-With the
naval controversy out of the way,
the government is making good
progress with legislation. The
bank act was given its final reading this morning.
Improving the Roads
Superintendent Carr has sev
eral crews doing good  work on'

and Smithers and   N.  Nesberg
has started with 15 men to continue building the Kispiox  road.

work  on  the   Silver   Standard
road.
Washington, May 23: Following the signing of the alien land
bill by the governor of California, the administration is considering an appeal to the supreme court to quash the enactment. Japan contemplates a
similar action.
There is a movement to submit the act to a referendum of
the voters of California, and
there is a possibility that such
action may be taken, in which
event the result ofthe vote would
be awaited before adopting other
means to adjust the difficulty.
Building Granby Smelter
Vancouver, May 21: ��� The
foundations for the $1,500,000

The Churches
Confirmation of The Mine
great district north of Hazelton is furnished by Joseph Ulmer, a
practical mining engineer and prospector, who told the Prince
Rupert News of his recent exploration of the country lying directly
north of tlii' Groundhog district for a radius of a hundred miles.
He is greatly impressed with what may be called his discovery and
earnest in his arguments that the Grand Trunk Pacific should immediately give some promise of building the branch line surveyed
through this country from Hazelton to Dawson.
"All the way out by way of Groundhog to Hazelton," said Mr.
Ulmer, "1 found there was great disappointment that the Grand
Trunk Pacific is taking no apparent steps to run their proposed
branch from Hazelton to Groundhog and from there to Dawson.
I know the route to be a feasible one all the way through, one presenting no engineering difficulties.     From  Telegraph  Greek  this
way it is easy to get into, well watered, vast areas of grass, plenty | B- c- Affleck, Mgr.  New Hazelton.
of game, especially moose and cariboo, and lots of good fishing.
"The country has not been prospected north of Groundhog and
in that vicinity only for coal. North of there the geological formation reminds one of Colorado. In the Gartner range, the south extension of the Cassiar range from the main Cassiar, the formation
consists chiefly of primary metamorphic and intrusive rocks. This
is flanked by the great lava beds, extending from the Naas to
Tooya lake, and southeasterly and to the east by the Skeena series
of coal formations.
"The country, as I said, has never been prospected for quartz,
though 1 believe a few prospectors have gone into it after placer.
It is not correctly mapped, even.
"It is a fine country for agriculture, and is also well mineralized.
Gold, silver, copper, and probably  iron  will  be found  there, and
also the rarer minerals.    Tungsten 1 found in quantity, and  wherever you find that you find the rarer minerals associated  with  it.
What is needed, and the only thing needed, to open  up this vast
country is transportation facilities.   That will come time, no doubt.
The country is now ready for the prospector and the investors who
have the means and the time to investigate thoroughly.   I  have,
never gone through a country  that looks  so promising in  every!
respect.    I am leaving on the next Prince Rupert for Granby, and
after a stay there shall shall probably hike back  into this interior1
country."

Loss by Forest Fires
The damage done to commercial stands of timber in North
America is from $25,000,000 to
$100,000,000 annually, according
to experts who have made a
study of the question. From
1880 to the present time, the annual loss is estimated to be $50,-
000,000. These figures do not
include estimates of the losses
sustained in the destruction of
young growth and forest litter
in which lies the hope of future
timber crops. The burning of
the forest litter has the effect of
making streams flow irregularly,
eroding river banks and destroying the fertility of land over
which useless earth is deposited
by swollen rivers. In some
years there are forest fires that
assume the size of national disasters. Such was the Peshtigo
fire Which swept over an area of
1,290.000 acres in Wisconsin in
1871, utterly ruining the country
and bringing death to fifteen
hundred people. Other fires
which stand out in the history of
the past century as examples of
the ruining power of the forest's
great enemy are: Miramichi fire,
Maine and New Brunswick, 1825,
3,000,000 acres burned and 160
lives lost.
Pontiac fire, Quebec, 1832, 1,-
GOO.OOO acres burned.
A fire in Michigan in 1871, 2.-
000,000 acres burned.
Michigan fire, Michigan, 1881,
1,000,000 acres burned and 138
lives lost.
Phillips fire in Wisconsin, 1894,
1,000,000  acres burned and 13
lives lost.
Hinckley fire in Minnesota,
1894, 160,000 acres burned and
418 lives lost.
Fernie fire, B.C., in 1908, 64,-
000 acres burned and 9 lives lost.
Great Idaho fire, Idaho and
Montana, in 1900, 2,000,000 acres
burned and 85 lives lost.
Baudette fire, Minnesota and
Ontario in 1910, 300,000 acres
burned and 42 lives lost.
Of recent years there has been
a remarkable change in the attitude of the public toward these
losses. Newspaper? and magazines discuss questions of fire
protection all the year through,
rather than in periods of danger
exclusively. Governments are
enacting advanced legislation,
the number of fire rangers is
constantly increasing and over
sixty forest protective associations on the continent are actively engaged in efforts to reduce
the fire loss
With half the timber wealth of
Canada within  her borders and
an annual revenue from the forest, which  can attain a total of
at least $100,000,000, British Columbia's interest in protection of:
forests from fire is almost be-1
yond  estimate.      The   forest*
branch is taking active measures
to place the whole Province un-1
der efficient protection to the end |
that no such losses as have oc-1
curred in the past in other parts
of the country may take place
here.

London, May 17:���Suffragette
outrages continue. Churches,
residences and a boat club have
been burned. The government
may call upon the military to aid
the police in suppressing the
militants.
The Indian Commission
Victoria, May 17:���The program for the Indian commission
has not yet been arranged, owing to the non-arrival of Judge
McKenna, who is now en route
from Ottawa in company with
Commissioner White. The other
members of the commission are
here, with Secretary Bergeron.
The latter predicts a lengthy
task. Premier Borden, he says,
is anxious to have the quarter-
century-old question of Indian
rights settled in a manner satisfactory to the natives and consistent with the requirements
and development of the province.
