GREAT PERIL
FOB BU
Lord Roberts Warns Empire
of Grave Danger���"Arm
Yourselves" He Says
ORDEAL NEAR AT HAND
Germany Only Awaiting Her Hour to
Strike ��� Lord Curzon Agrees With
Veteran Warrior���Treaties and Tribunals of no Avail in Time of Crisis
Manchester, October 24:���A
solemn, warning of Britain's immediate danger was given by
Lord Roberts in a speech here
which created a profound impression. The veteran of many
wars declared the nation's peril
at great length and with much
emotion. The ordeal, he said,
was near at hand; Germany would
strike when her hour struck. For
this hour Germany has been long
preparing. The speaker urged
Britons to awaken to the Empire's responsibilities at once.
"If these are my last words,"
he concluded, "I will say, 'Arm
Yourselves.'"
Treaties Unavailing
London, Oct. 24:���Lord Curzon, in a speech delivered here
today, agreed with Lord Roberts'
estimate of Britain's peril, adding that Hague treaties and tribunals were alike broken in time
of crisis. We live, he said, in an
age of colossal hyprocrisy.
Munitions of War
London, Oct. 21:���Not since
the time of the South African
war, says a Woolwich correspondent, has there been such exceptional activity in the Royal Arsenal in the department for the
manufacture of explosives. In
the gun foundry, which provides
heavy guns for the navy as well
field guns for the army, the impetus is particularly notable. In
practically all branches of arsenal
work, the existing staff of over
8,000 men is being called upon to
put in extra time.
It is worthy of note, adds the
correspondent, that the higher
pressure is to be found in the
naval works.
Would Lynch Johnson
Chicago, 111., Oct. 21:���A howling mob of several hundred infuriated white men blocked traffic
for several hours on Saturday in
front of the First National Bank
in an effort to reach Jack Johnson, the champion pugilist of the
world, and lynch him for the abduction of a young girl, Lucille
Cameron, for which he was arrested earlier in the day and was
released on bail of $1,500. He
escaped through the rear door of
the bank and made his getaway,
but later the mob surrounded
him again and it was only after
a desperate struggle between the
citizens and the six strong pugilists who acted as a bodyguard for
him and the coming of the police
reserves that he escaped a horrible death, His "golden smile"
has vanished and he is wearing
a furtive, hunted look.
The Cameron girl was released on $25,000 bonds to appear as n witness against Johnson and Jeanette Door, who will
both be arraigned on charges of
engaging in the white slave
traffic.
New Steamer Schedule
Prince Rupert: Commencing
next week, the G. T. P. will run
only one steamer a week from
Vancouver to Prince Rupert.
Steamers will arrive Wednesdays and leave Fridays.
Board of Trade Asks
for Railway Station
At the regular quarterly meeting of the board of trade on
Tuesday evening, a resolution, of
which due notice had been given,
urging the immediate authorization by the railway board of the
South Hazelton station, was carried and telegraphed to the commissioners. Eleven members of
the board voted against the resolution.
Big Fruit Crop
Vernon, Oct. 24:���Okanagan
this season yielded the most
prolific fruit crop in its history.
Inadequate facilities for the shipment of the immense crop result
in hundreds of tons of peaches
rotting on the ground, while carloads of apples will never reach
consumers.
Twenty-seven Vancouver'fruit
dealers are here in conference
with the growers. An agreement
for cooperation is being arranged.
MODERN IDEAS FOR
VALLEY TOWNSITE
Railway Taking Steps for Establishment of Town at Important
Point in Bulkley
There appears to be reasonable
ground for the belief that the
Grand Trunk Pacific intends to
establish a town on the land recently acquired by the company
about three miles east of Telkwa.
Yesterday morning W. P. Murray
left for Telkwa, and it is understood his business in the Valley
is connected with the projected
townsite. Accompanying Mr.
Murray were P. C. Coates, who
is chief of a party of surveyors.
The work of subdividing the
townsite will begin immediately
and will be continued all winter
should weather permit. It is reported that in a short time Mr.
Coates' party will be reinforced
by one or more landscape experts, who will assist in laying
out the townsite. From this it
is to be inferred that the railway
company expects great things of
the Valley and is prepared to
establish the town on modern
lines.
Local sportsmen have made
good bags of grouse since the
season opened. In the immediate
vicinity of town the birds are
pow scarce.
Bohemian Club Opening
(Special to The Minor)
Telkwa, Oct. 21:���The opening
at home of the Bohemian Club
was held on Thursday evening
and proved a successful and enjoyable affair. The hall was
tastefully decorated by the ladies,
under the supervision of Mes-
dames Dorreen and Wallace, and
was divided into two parts, one
for cards and, later, dancing,
and the other arranged as a retreat, with luxurious cozy corners, etc. Considerable ingenuity
was displayed in the arrangement and decorations, for which
great credit is due the ladies.
A choice musical program was
provided, after which a tasty
lunch was served. The tables
being cleared, the members and
visitors danced to their hearts'
content. The at home was voted
a brilliant success.
Mr. and Mrs. Dorreen are
leaving for Hazelton. They will
be much missed by the club, in
which they have taken great interest.
THE TURK AT BAY HARASSED
BT ENEMIES ON EVERY SIDE
Early Engagements of Balkan War Disastrous
to Ottoman Arms���Forts and Towns Captured by Allies���Thousands of Turks Are
Taken Prisoners During Week.
Sofia, Oct. 23.���There is great
rejoicing here over the capture
by Bulgarian forces of Kirk
Kilisseh, the Turkish fortress
which is regarded as the key to
Adrianople and the headquarters
of the Turkish third army. It
was the first great battle between the Bulgarian and Turkish
forces. Reports so far received
do not give the number of casualties, but state that fifty thousand of the enemy were taken
prisoners by the Bulgarian army.

over the forts of Adrianople at a
height of one thousand feet. He
was made a target by the Turks,
but returned safely with valuable
information.
of Arda fled, leaving a hundred
dead and large quantities o f
supplies.
The Retort Courteous
London, Oct. 23:���When the
Sultan of Turkey mobilized his
troops he sent King Ferdinand
of Bulgaria a sack of millet, with
this message: "Mobilize if you
like; but be assured there are as
many soldiers in Turkey as there
are grains in this sack."
The Bulgarian monarch replied
by sending a sack of red pepper,
with a note saying: "Bulgarians
are not numerous, it is true; but
be assured that to stick your nose
into their affairs is like sticking
it into their national condiment.
Try it and see. They will sting
you so sharply that the whole of
Asia shall not be able to save
you."
Greek Fleet Active
Athens, Oct. 21:���The Agean
squadron of the Greek fleet arrived at Kastro, the capital of
the Island of Lemnos, and commanded the authorities to surrender. When this was refused
the fleet anchored and landed
troops, which advanced to the
county town. A blockade was
proclaimed of the port of Lemnos and others on the coast.
Turks Lose Big Battle
Athens, Oct. 23:���Greek forces
defeated twenty-two battalions
of Turks, beyond Elassona, according to a despatch just received from Crown Prince Con-
stantine, commander-in-chief of
the Greek army.
Servians Take Town
London, Oct. 23:��� Servians
have captured the important
Turkish town of Novibasear after
a fierce engagement in which
severe losses were sustained on
each side. The Turks are retreating.
Owing to rigorous censorship
little news has been received of
the battles and movements of
the war.

Revelstoke, Oct. 24:���The best
attended and most enthusiastic
Conservative convention ever
held in British Columbia gave
Sir Richard McBride a great
ovation today at the opening of
the annual meeting of the B. C.
Conservative Association. The
Premier,. Attorney-General Bowser, Hon. Thos. Taylor, H. H.
Scevens, R. F. Green and H. S.
Clements delivered stirring addresses on the federal and provincial victories of the party.

remarkable growth for the organization, resulting in increased
work for the executive. Over
5000 communications were dealt
with during the year. President
Mackay, in his address, urged
the appointment of an assistant
secretary and also of a permanent
organizer to work in the northern
interior and other new sections
of the province.

To Assist Settlers' Work
(Special lo Tin' Miner)
Victoria,  Oct.  23:���As on advance step to what is hoped to be
a more general system of aid to
settlers   in    clearing    timbered j
lands in  this province,   the de-!
partment of agriculture  has issued notification to the various j
agricultural societies and farmers'   institutes    throughout the j
province that it is prepared toj
issue supplies of stumping pow-
der to bona fide settlers free of |
cost upon conditions which shall j
be equitable  both to the settler
and to the province.   The settler
who is desirous  of  benefitting
from this boon can obtain details
of how to secure it from his provincial   representative,   from   a
secretary of his agricultural society or farmers'  institute, or,
failing both these, by direct application to the minister of agriculture here.

The Opposing Forces
London, Oct 23: -Following is
an authorative estimate of the
war strength of the nations engaged in the Balkan war, with
the force each could immediately
place in the field:
Bulgaria: war strength, 375,-
000; field force, 235,000.
Greece: war strength, 100,000;
field force, 50,000.
Servia: war strength, 175,000;
field force, 110,000.
Montenegro: war strength, 50,-
000; field force, 30,000.
Turkey: war strength, 1,000,-
000; field force, 300,000.
of lands of this province so as to
make them available for agricultural purposes is a big one. The
suggestion has been made that
the government should assist
settlers by direct grant. That
suggestion is under consideration.
Meanwhile, the prior step has
been taken of providing settlers
with the material with which
they can attempt the work of
stumping. This should be successful, in view of the fact that
the explosive material is provided, and only the individual
effort is required. But if the
results of this experiment do not
give the returns expected, then
further action may be considered
by the government. In the
meantime the supply o f free
powder is considered as a distinctly advance step. It is one
which has been taken by no other
province, and is further proof of
the desire of the government to
extend its cooperation to the
settlers where it can be done to
the public advantage.
ExtensiveProgrfon of Legislation
for Special Session-Probable
Changes in Cabinet
Ottawa, Oct. 21:���A proclamation calling parliament to meet
on Nov. 21 was issued today.
Premier Borden is apparently
not perturbed by the withdrawal

Monk, who is resigning because
the emergency naval contribution
of $30,000,000 is to be passed
without a plebiscite.

Protection for Which Country Has
Always Relied Upon Britain Speech
Greeted with Intense Enthusiasm
Revelstoke, Oct 25:���At the
Conservative banquet last night
Premier McBride made such a
stirring plea for a stronger navy
and army for Canada that the
large audience, including ladies
in the gallery, spontaneously
joined as one in singing "The
Maple Leaf" and "Rule Britannia."
"We are living in a fool's
paradise," said Sir Richard.
Speaking on national grounds,he
pointed out the need of a navy
to protect the B. C. coast from
possible attack from the Orient.
We have, he said, illimitable resources which are unprotected.
Let us safeguard them. Let us
be able to claim a Canadian army
and navy, second in efficiency
to none in the world. We have
depended too long upon the
mother country for the protection
which we should ourselves furnish. The Dominion cannot do too
much in assisting the Imperial
defence to please the people of
British Columbia. The premier
hoped Mr. Borden would announce a strong naval policy, to
which Canada would respond as
one man.
Hon. W. J. Bowser said the
province and Dominion would
combine to encourage the settlement in B. C. of white fishermen
who in time of necessity would
assist in manning a defence fleet.

Saturday, October 2G, 1912.
No. 8.
The people of Canada will endorse the proposed action of the
Borden administration in voting an appropriation of thirty million
dollars as an emergency contribution to the Imperial navy. With
the outbreak of a general war in the Balkans, there is grave danger
that the European powers may become embroiled in a general conflict and that Great Britain may be called upon to defend herself
from the aggressions of ambitious and unfriendly nations. The
assurance of Canadian sympathy and support which is not the
smallest part of the proposed contribution will be welcomed by the
people of the empire as indicating that the Dominion will maintain
its position as "A Great Part of a Greater Whole."
That the danger of war is not remote is quite evident from the
pronouncements of Lord Roberts and Lord Curzon, great soldier and
great statesman. The British ship of state has weathered all the
storms of the past; but a universal war, in which the Empire might
stand practically alone against powerful and rapacious enemies,
would prove a severe test of her strength and endurance. It is
well that Canada is to stand in line with the rest of the British
nations. 	
During the six months from April 1 to October 1, of the current
fiscal year, 273,049 immigrants arrived in Canada. Of this number
183,990 arrived at ocean ports and 89,569 from the United States.
These figures show an increase of 13 per cent as compared with
the number of arrivals for the corresponding months of the last
fiscal year, which were 158,614 at ocean ports and 83,317 from the
United States, making a total for the six months from April 1 to
October 1, 1911, of 241,931.
During the month of September this year there were 31,140
arrivals, 20,690 arriving at ocean ports and 10,450 from the United
States as against 29,077 for September last year, of whom 17,594
were at ocean ports and 11,484 from the U. S. The immigration
into Canada for the last half year is considerably greater than the
entire population of Montenegro, the country which a few days ago
declared war against Turkey.
Clearing Bush Lands
Dr. H. L. Gordon, a prominent
Englishman, who recently visited
Hazelton and district, is the
author of the following article,
which recently appeared in The
Field:
The average English emigrant
to British Columbia has a horror
of land clearing. Whilst American and other immigrants are
securing uncleared land and adding daily to its value by their
own work, the English immigrant
clamors for cleared land. The
first gains access to potentially
rich districts at a low figure; the
second helps to swell the demand
for a limited supply, which has
already raised prices to a figure
which alarms those in search of
an investment as well as of an
occupation.
Experience has taught me that
land clearing is not necessarily
an affair to avoid, but may be a
healthy, enjoyable and profitable
occupation. During a recent expedition through the central portion of British Columbia, which
is being opened up by the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway. I took a
series of photographs which
represent fairly the nature of the
clearing in the inland districts of
the province.
In a wooded country the wooded land is generally the best land.
No country is so densely timbered that it has  no open  patches,
but these are not always desirable.   The   absence of  growth
may be due to one of two extremes- a poor  or dry   soil in
which the seeds of trees find no
nourishment,  or a moist soil in
which they are choked by exuberant growth   of grasses.    Open
land of the first kind is to be
avoided,  and may be known by
its    sparse    covering  of   poor
grasses.   The second kind may
make admirable  farm land with
drainage.    Poplar   (cottonwood)
is the chief growth on good soil
in British  Columbia, but   birch,
alder,  spruce and willow occur
also; these attract the professional land selector or "cruiser," but
he suspects land covered   with
pine.   Thick pine seldom   indicates rich soil, but pine amongst
poplar or spruce need not arouse
suspicion. Pine will grow where
other trees will not, but will also
grow on good soil. A few pine
are useful to the farmer.
It is well known that fires
work havoc in Canadian forests
where the timber is large and
merchantable. But amongst
small timber and bush it is a
boon as a clearing agent. These
clearings made by fire are numer-
! ous and much sought after; land
may be made ready for the plow
with little labor. A lighted
match may be all that is is required to complete the destruction, under careful supervision
at the right season. If, however,
the soil is covered with a top
layer of vegetable mould, it is
better to burn the dry timber in
heaps, to avoid the loss of this
valuable addition to the soil.
Those who have seen the heavy
timber on the Pacific coast of
British Columbia will realize that
the clearing I have described is
in reality light. The experienced
settler does his own clearing in
his spare time, and thus adds
greatly to the value o f his
property at small outlay. The
art of clearing such bush is learnt
easily and is far from being as
arduous as is generally supposed.
It consists of two main  proceses
slashing and stumping. Slashing means the removal of all except the stumps, and, as a rule,
requires only the axe. Stumping,
which is a formidable process on
the Pacific coast, loses its terrors
up-country, where the plow may
be all that is necessary. If more
is required, the farmer may leave
his stumps to rot until removal
is no trouble, meanwhile sowing
crops on the slashed land around
them; or, if they are many, he
uses the simple stump puller. It
is only the rare big trees which
require explosives for immediate
removal. It is deplorable that
from a desire to avoid any life
which seems to involve "roughing it," and from ignorance of
the increase in value earned by
the settler who clears and improves his land for himself, the
British immigrant is allowing
many of the best opportunities
for profitable investment in the
agricultural land of British Col-1
iimbia to be taken up by others. |

Funeral of E. B. Adams
The following account of the
funeral of the late E. B. Adams,
for a short time resident here,
and brother of J. Mason Adams
and J. F. Adams, of Hazelton, is
taken from the Drayton, Ont.,
Advocate:
"The remains of the late.Emerson Blake'Adams'arrived in Drayton on Monday by the noon train,
accompanied by his brother, Mr.
Jas. P. Adams of Hazelton, B. C.
Quite a large number of the relatives and friends were at the G.
T. R. station to receive the body,
and convey it to its last resting
place. The funeral took place
immediately from the station,
interment being made in the
family plot in Victoria Cemetery,
Revs. A. E. Smith, Drayton, and
Jabez Dyke, of Toronto, officiating. Out of respect to the deceased's father, who was a Past
Master of the Drayton Masonic
lodge, the Brethren marched in
advance of the hearse and took
part in the burial service. Deceased began to show declining
health last fall since which time
everything possible was done for
him but his final illness lasted
only a couple of months. The
Institute in Muskoka was recommended and his brothers took
him there for treatment which,
no doubt, prolonged his life to
some extent. He was the
youngest son of the late Mr. and
Mrs. J. Q. Adams and was a boy
held in the highest esteem by his
associates and the people of the
community in which he lived,
and very sincere sympathy is expressed over the fact of a promising life being cut off at the early
age of twenty-seven years. The
large, handsome oak casket was
covered with beautiful floral
offerings. In the number were
two very fine wreaths; one from
the brothers and the other from
a Masonic Lodge in the west."

A New Railroad Wrinkle
A simple device for facilitating
the distribution and movement of
freight is gaining favor among
the railroad fraternity, according
to a writer in the Boston Transcript. This device, known to
the elect by the homely name of
"the hump," is nothing but a
slightly elevated stretch of track
in the middle-of a freight yard.
That under construction by the
Boston & Maine atMechanicville,
N. Y., is composed of asmall embankment, about seven hundred
feet long and six or seven feet
high in the middle. At one end
it begins to rise at the rate of
one foot to the hundred and near
the center there is a sharper rise.
At the other end of the crest the
hump begins to descend until it
is level with the other tracks
again. We read of the uses of
this simple device:
"This 'hump' takes the place
of several locomotives and several men. It saves motive power,
rolling stock, and wages, and it
expedites the movement of
freighters. How ? It is such a
simple process that engineers are
asking themselves why they
waited so long to avail themselves
of the law of gravity which is invested in the 'hump.' There
may be a train of fifteen freight
cars, each one of which has a
seperate destination. Consequently these fifteen cars are going to fifteen different trains, or
perhaps as many different rails
out of the yard. The old way
would be for the switch-engine
to take them out one by one and
haul them to their respective
trains, going back to the original
train each time. The new way
is for the engine to go back of
the train of fifteen cars and push
them ull over thut 'hump.' As
each car reaches the top it is uncoupled from the train and it begins to ride down hill on the;
other side, registering its weight
as it passes over a scale, and as
it runs down the slope it is
switched on to whatever track it
is wanted on, and with one run
the engine has accomplished
what it would have to make
several runs for without the
'hump ' A railroad engineer connected with the construction of I
the yard says that one locomotive!
will do at least as much work asi
as four engines can do without ai
'hump.'
"All new freight yards which
are large enough will have humps,
in the future. The large freight
centers on the Boston & Maine
are to be equipped with them.
Boston is likely to get them, tho
the freight yard would have to
be moved farther out. There is
no room for any near North Sta- j
tion." '

PAINTS & V*
An appeal to the pride
of the owner of a home
> Everyone who owns a home is
anxious that that home shall make
the best appearance possible. Two
things are necessary to produce satisfactory results in painting and varnishing a home:
. First���A satisfactory color scheme.
'" Second���Paints, varnishes, stains
and enamels of such good quality that
they not only give the exact color
effect required, but are sufficiently
durable to keep up the attractive appearance of the house in spite of the
wear and tear of living in it.
These are offered by the Sherwin-
Williams Paints and Varnishes. The
Sherwin-Williams Co. not only make
every kind of paint and varnish used
for a house and the best quality of
that kind, but they make suggestions
for the selection of colors, varnishes,
stains and enamels, so that any given
idea can be carried out, and car
ried out with the best materials.
You should sec to it that when you
buy paints and varnishes for your
house, or any part of it, or when you
give an order to your painter for any
painting and varnishing you want
done, that Sherwin-Williams Paints
and Varnishes are purchased.
In large work it is always best to
have a practical painter; but there
are many little things about the house
that you can readily finish yourself
by using Sherwin-Williams ready-to-
apply paints.
Come in and have a little paint
talk with us. Now is the time to
"brighten up" your home for the
long winter months. We can tell
you the best product to use for any
purpose you may have in mind and
secure complete finishing specifications for you from The Sherwin-
Williams Co., if you desire them, for
special work. Our line of Sherwin-
Williams Products is complete and
we are in a position to take the best
care of your paint and varnish re-
reinents.
