Owners of Mining Properties In Vicinity of Hazelton
Will Do Much Work.
Want Peace River Road
Victoria: Replying to an influential deputation from Vancouver and New Westminster,
advocating the Peace river railway project, Premier McBride
said the railway policy of the
government would be announced
in a few days.
Ore Displays Attract Attention of Mining Men Duke Karris Tells of Plans
for Opening Up Lode Mines of the
Omineca District This Year.
News of the most encouraging
nature is brought from the coast
cities by W. S. (Duke) Harris,
the well known Hazelton mining
man, who returned on Wednesday from a holiday visit to his
home in Vancouver. Duke says
that various exhibits of ore from
the mines of this district, which
are on display in Vancouver,
have excited much interest on
the part of prospectors and
mining men, and he looks to see
seekers for mineral flocking into
this district as soon as spring
Mining men operating in this
vicinity, many of whom make
their winter headquarters i n
Vancouver, are preparing for
aggressive development work on
many properties, and there is no
doubt the coming season will be
marked by a greater advance in
the mining industry than in any
prtrious year. E. L. Kinman,
who controls the Erie, is preparing to bring a compressor
plant here in the spring, and will
develop his property by means of
a big tunnel. The Babine Mining
Company will sink a shaft on its
big ore showitg. John Cameron,
who purchased the Surprise, on
Glen mountain, from Thompson
and Duncan, will develop the
property by means of a crosscut
tunnel. The Sunrise, owned by
the Silver Cup people, is to be
opened up, and the companies
which are at present working
will increase their forces with
the intention of placing the mines
on a shipping basis before the
arrival of the railway.
The Harris Mines, which has
made such excellent progress,
will be developed by means of
tunnels which will give considerable depth on the big ore shoots
which have made the property
so prominent. D. A. Harris,
superintendent of the mine, is
now on his way up the river.
Grand Trunk Pacific Wants To Borrow
Fifteen Millions In Ottawa.
Ottawa, Jan. 8: ��� President
Hays and Wainwright of the G.
T. P. are here today on what is
said to be an important mission
affecting the relations between
the railway and the government.
They had a lengthy conference
with premier Borden and Hon.
Mr. Monk. No official statement
has been made, but it is reported
the company is seeking a loan of
upwards of $15,000,000. Under
the revised contract of 1904. the
government is pledged to assist
the company by bond guarantees for $13,000 a mile on the
prairie section and three-fourths
the cost of   mountain   sections.
In 1909 the railway obtained a loan of $10,000,000 from the
government at three per cent.
Hall Association Held
Very Successful Dance
The second annual dance of
the Hazelton Hall Association,
which was held last evening, has
hardly been excelled by any of
the large number of successful
dances given in Hazelton. A
crowd which comfortably filled
the hall enjoyed to the utmost
the long program of dances, and
many econiums were passed upon
the arrangements, which reflected great credit upon the committees. The tasteful decorations,
for which W. Allison was responsible, lent an added air of
gaiety to the scene, while the
floor was in excellent condition
and Fred Springsteen, who came
down from Aldermere for the
occasion, and was accompanied
on the piano by Mrs. Harvey,
furnished the best of music.
The number of ladies in attendance was unusually large, many
coming from other points in the

Veteran Mining Man Dead
Victoria: J.B. Hobson, a well
known mining engineer, is dead

manager of the Cariboo Hydraulic Co. and has been for
many years associated with John
Hays Hammond i n various
mining enterprises.
Province, j Redistribution May
Not Be Considered
(Rpeelal I" Tho Miner)
Victoria, Jan. 11:���The third
session of the twelfth legislative
assembly of British Columbia
was inaugurated at three o'clock
this afternoon, with the usual
picturesque ceremonies. The costumes of many ladies and the
uniforms of the Lieutenant-governor's guard of honor contributed a wealth of color to the
picture which had for its background the stately parliament
In the speech from the throne,
after fitting references to the
King's coronation, at which
British Columbia was represented, and the coming to Canada
as Governor-general of the Duke
of Connaught, Hon. T. W. Pat-
erson, Lieutenant-governor of the
province, said the year had been
one of great prosperity and progress throughout British Columbia. The development of the
various resources of the province
had been most gratifying. It was
intimated that the financial statement to be presented to the house
will show a considerable expansion of revenue. Dealing with
proposed legislation, the governor said provision would be made
for the establishment of a de-
Coal Measures

partment of forestry and a bill
dealing with the conservation
and administration of the timber wealth of the province will
be submitted.
All papers relating to the visit j
to Ottawa of the first minister
and the attorney-general  will be
laid before the house.   In this!
connection the   transfer to the
province of the administration of
water rights in the railway belt |
was referred to.   It was intimated that there would be a large
increase in the appropriations for I
public works, necessitated by the
rapid growth of business through-
but the province.   The contract j
had been awarded for a much
heeded extension to the parlia-
ment buildings,   work on which
is now in progress.
"Owing to the increased de-1
mand for transportation facili-;
ties," the Governor said, "mea-'
sures will be placed before you
designed to further encourage the
building of railways in this province. "   Following a reference to
the work of clearing land for the
provincial  university,  he added
"You will be asked to provide a
sufficient grant to permit of the!
formal opening of the university
in 1913."
Victoria, Jan. 12: - Several
references have recently appeared in the provincial press to
the presentation of a redistribution bill (based on the recent
census) at the forthcoming session of the local Legislature, in
connection with which it may be
stated that although the matter
has as yet received no forma!
cabinet consideration it is highly
improbable a measure of that
nature will be regarded as necessary or desirable at the present
Representation of a population
of less than half a million by
forty-two members may be regarded as numerically quite sufficient, while it is deemed the
policy of wisdom to allow population to settle somewhat before
deciding upon any necessary readjustment of provincial constituencies.
J. A. Thorne, of the construction department of the government telegraphs, is spending a
few days in town.
Civic elections were held
throughout the province yesterday. Special despatches to the

General Election May Be Called
for Endorsation of Railroad Act
(Special to The Miner)
Victoria, Jan 11: It is generally believed in the capital that
this will be the final session of
the present legislature, and that
the government will go to the
people, probably in April or May,
on measures for further encouraging railway construction
throughout the province. Details
of the program are not likely to
be announced for several weeks,
there has been no official announcement with regard to the
question of redistribution, and
it is not known whether there
will Lie a readjustment of electoral districts at this session.
Important legislation having
the effect of readjusting taxation
will be  brought in during  the
session. The report of the royal
commission which investigated
the subject was presented to the
premier today, and will be transmitted to the legislature at an
early date.
On the question of better terms
in the matter of the financial relations between the province and
the Dominion, it is expected that
the administration early in the
session will be in a position to
announce a satisfactory agreement between the two governments.
On good authority it is reported
that Hon. Mr. McBride will announce his intention to open
negotiations with the British
foreign office regarding the admission of Asiatics to this province.

New York, Jan. 11: On Tuesday the nine-story marble building of the Equitable Life was
burned, with a loss of $10,000,000.
It was the home of a dozen great
corporations, whose securities are
in the safe deposit vaults, which
are now encased in debris and
ice, which wreckers are clearing
away. It is believed the contents
are uninjured. The fire caused
six deaths. Two are missing and
23 injured, The body of Batal-
lion Chief Walsh has been recovered, with those of two other
firemen. Throe employees of th=
restaurant where the fire started
are dead. The company will
erect a 62-story building on the
same site.
Bank Robbers Caught
clal 1" The -Mliu r)
Hazelton Men Return To Tell of Great
Extension of Field ���Located Coal for
Twentyfive Miles On Main Skeena
and Stikine Headwaters.
That the extent and value of
the Groundhog coal fields will
surprise the mining world is becoming more and more evident.
Robert McDonald and T. E.
Hankin, who returned on Wednesday from the upper Skeena,
report that in the valley of the
main branch of the river, and
extending across to the headwaters of the Stikine, there is a
newly-discovered coal field which
gives every evidence of being at
least as important as the adjoining area, which has been located
for some time, and upon which
engineers have reported so favorably as to create not a little
excitement among the coal operators of the country. The returned explorers, who located a
large area of coal land for the
B. C. Brokerage company and
associated operators, say the valley in which the latest discoveries
have luen made is twenty-five
miles long, with a width reaching
five miles in places.
The new locutions have the
largest number of exposures of
any part of the Groundhog district, says Mr. McDonald, who
told the Miner "The quantity is
there, and there is every reason
to believe the quality of the coal
is equal to that of the partially
developed portions of the field."
As tests prove the Groundhog
coal to be equal to the Pennsylvania product, it is evident that
the locators have a very high
opinion of the new ground.
The trail to the upper part of
the Groundhog field, which leaves
the telegraph trail near the fifth
cabin, is a relic of the Klondike
rush, and is almost impassable.
Efforts ore being made to secure
an appropriation from the government for the construction of
a new trail, which will be urgently needed in the spring,
when claim owners send outfits
in to prospect the measures exposed in the valleys of, the big
coal field.
Statement of Provincial Finances
Shows Highly Satisfactory Condition
(Special   In The  Miner)
Victoria, January 12: At the
opening session of the house today Hon. J. S. Helmcken, first
speaker of the colonial assembly,
and former premiers Semlin and
Bevan were the chief visitors.
Watson of Vancouver moved the
address in reply to the speech
from the throne, seconded by
Lucas of Yale. Both dealt with
the great advancement and bright
prospects of the province.
The provincial revenue for the
past fiscal year was $10,492,000,
compared with $8,874,000 for the
previous year, an increase of
over one and a half millions.
The net expenditure was $8,159,-
000, compared with $0,383,000 in
At the end of March last provincial assets exceeded all liabil
ities by $1,497,000, with a cash;
balance in bank and treasury of
$8,744,000. Analyses of sources
of income show development and
expansion in all departments.
Expenditures have been chiefly!
for public works of permanent
and remunerative chracter, which
will remain substantial assets of
the province.
The work  of   the legislators
will probably be completed within six weeks.   It is reported that
John   Oliver,    former    Liberal
leader, will be here for the session, to assist Brewster, the only
Liberal member, in framing an
opposition policy.     This  unique i
departure  in   political methods:
will   be  watched   with interest.

The Legislative Program
In political circles there is a general belief that the provincial
government has decided upon the dissolution of the assembly at
the close of the present session, which will be followed within a
compartively short time by a general election. The object of the
administration will be to secure the endorsation of the important
railway policy which has been prepared, and which includes provision for the railway which is to connect the vast Peace river district with the commercial centers of the province. In addition to
the Peace river road, semi-official reports say, the government proposes to secure the construction of branch lines to develop several
of the newer districts of British Columbia.
Railways for New Districts
The announcement of the new railway policy will be awaited
with the greatest interest by the people of this district, who indulge in the not unreasonable hope that such assistance as necessary will be given a railway from this point to the upper Skeena
district, where vast areas of the finest coal await development.
Such a road will open up a country which has resources sufficient
to add materially to the wealth of the province. It will tap a
hundred miles of excellent mineral country before reaching the
coal district, providing the transportation necessary for the exploration and development of the rich veins which are known to exist
to the north of Hazelton and greatly increasing the importance of
this town as a distributing center.
May Readjust Constituencies
The revision of the statutes, which is now in progress, allows of
numerous necessary amendments being embodied in various acts
without the passage of separate bills, the ratification and endorsement of the revised statutes being sufficient. This will reduce the
amount of sessional business considerably, so that the session is
not likely to be unduly prolonged. After the railway policy, the
subject of greatest interest is likely to be redistribution, if that
matter is dealt with at this session. It is held by some in authority
that a redistribution of seats should not be undertaken until population in the newer districts is on a more settled basis. The people
of Omineca district, however, are not likely to be satisfied if redistribution is delayed. This district is large enough and important
enough to have a member of its own in the provincial house, while
its population, even in this stage of development, is greater than
that of several of the provincial constituencies. Almost all the
interests of the people of this district are distinctly separate from
those of the coast district of the Skeena constituency, while the
present electorial division is of such extent that one member cannot adequately represent it. We trust the government will not
call an election without taking steps to give us the recognition to
which we are entitled.
Proposed Department of Forestry
New legislation affecting the administration of lands and timber
is likely to be introduced during the session. The nature of the
proposed changes has not been announced, though the minister of
lands states that a bureau of forestry and conservation is to be established. (Ion. W. R. Ross has been devoting much attention and
energy to the duties of his office, and the new legislation may be
expected to improve the existing land laws.
Will Spend Millions on Public Works
In the matter of public works, "Good Roads" Taylor, minister of
works, announces that increased expenditures will bo provided for.
His department recognizes the claims of this part of iiio province
to better roads, and our requirements will receive due attention
when tho appropriations for roads, trails and bridges are being
made. It is probable that the present road district will be divided,
experience having shown that the present territory of the road
superintendent is much too large for one official to be able to give
every portion of it the necessary attention.
Reformation of Tax System
The full report of the taxation commission is now in the hands
of the premier, and will be submitted to the legislature early in the
session. The members of the commission conducted an exhaustive
enquiry into the taxation system of the province, collecting a large
amount of data and evidence, which, with their conclusions and
recommendations, will form the basis of legislation intended to improve the existing system. None will deny that reform in our
methods of taxation is very necessary. In preparing new legislation
bearing on the subject, the house is fortunate in having a comprehensive report on the question from such able men as those who
composed the commission.
Revenue Has Increased
The financial statement to be presented to the house will show a
gratifying increase in revenue, justifying the larger expenditures
which have been decided upon by the government. In addition to
ordinary public works appropriations, which will be subject to a
considerable increase, the additions to the legislative buildings and
the construction of the provincial university at Point Grey will call
for a large expenditure. British Columbia is exceedingly fortunate
in having not only a large surplus, which is in the bank, and not
merely on paper, but also a revenue which is more than sufficient
to provide for the enormous expenditures necessitated by the opening up of large areas of new country.
Sane Mining Pays
According to a compilation
made by Mining and Engineering World, the eleven months of
11911   have   been    profitable  to
; holders of stock of sanely operated   mining  companies to the
(extent of $75,052,767. Participating  in   these  disbursements
1 were 149 companies, 112 operating in the United States,  19 in
[Mexico, 17 in Canada and one in
Central America. The total disbursements of these 149 companies, including the November
declarations,  reach the total of
'��� $766,189,382. This, based on the
total issued capital of the 149
companies, is equivalent to a return of 107 per cent, or approximately $55,000,000 in excess of
the outstanding capital. Not included in above disbursements
are those made by eight securities holding corporations, whose
profits are derived from holdings
in other companies. The declarations made by these companies
during the eleven months of 1911
total $12,848,390, and since incorporation, $130,601,587, a four
per cent, return on their assured
share capital of $319,399,500.
The Agricultural Journal of
British Columbia, the second
number of which has just reached us, promises to become a very
useful periodical, deserving of
the support of the farmers of the
province. It is published in Victoria.

Do You Realize
that, in a town such as NEW HAZELTON will be, in order to own the best property you must be on
the inside?
Six or seven blocks in the business center of any town or city always command the highest figures.
Outside this radius property values decrease in direct ratio as the distance from this center increases.
In NEW HAZELTON this business center will be created by the Old Hazelton Business Men
themselves. To any who have not already bought we advise immediate action, as outside buyers are
quick to realize this point and are snapping up lots surrounding where Old Hazelton people have bought.
Get In the Business Center
Now, you may say, "I'll wait. I may not want to continue in business in this district, or if I do, I
may be able to get in cheaper after awhile."
In answer to such an argument we would say that every indication points to an era of prosperity for
this district undreamed of before. HAZELTON is on the tip of everyone's tongue all over the continent, and a rush of population and capital to the district is assured for the coming spring. You know we
have the resources and attractions to keep them here.
Only One Time���That's Now
So if you buy now, on the inside of NEW HAZELTON, you will be protecting yourself; for even
if you do not use your property yourself, you will be able to sell, at a handsome profit, to someone who

Francois lake direct connection
with the main trunk road.
Similar work has been undertaken at the head of Francois

at its mouth, giving the people
of South Francois and Ootsa access to the recently constructed

Victoria, January 10: ��� Hon.
Thomas Taylor, minister of
public works, is engaged in getting things in shape for the
session and preparing estimates
for roads and  other necessary
public works.
Mr. Taylor is of the opinion
that the amount to be asked from
the legislature at the next session for roads in the province
will be considerably larger than
was voted last year. Public
works is the great spending
department of the provincial administration, no less than $5,-
500,000 of the seven millions
voted last year going to work
under the charge of this depart- i
"Last year," says Mr. Taylor,
"the estimated revenue of the
province was seven millions and
the government figured to spend
it all, being of the opinion that it
is not wise policy to keep a surplus when there is so much that
requires to be done in the way of
development. As it happened,
however, our estimates of
revenue were below the mark
and the actual revenue for the
year will be in the neighborhood
of $10,500,000. This will put us
in a position to do much more
next year, and I would not be
surprised if the expenditure on
roads would be increased by another two million dollars, but
that of course is for the legislature to say.
"A great deal of this prospective new expenditure is necessitated by the influx of settlers to
Northern British Columbia.
They are pouring into that
country and they must be provided for. I expect that the
amount spent on public works in
that section of the province will
be greatly augmented next year
as compared with previous

Men's Suits
Men's Suits, Blue and Fancy Serges, sizes 36 to 42. These
Suits are the famous SOVEREIGN BRAND, being the
highest grade of ready made clothing turned out by W. E.
Sanford Company Ltd. of Hamilton, Ontario. The goods
speak for themselves, the tailoring is first class and guaranteed,
and the name SOVEREIGN is stamped on the inside of
breast pocket of every suit. I began to handle this brand on
the recommendation of a friend, one of the largest clothing
merchants in the thriving town of Regina. His continued
success with the SOVEREIGN BRAND caused me to
purchase a trial stock several years ago, since when I have
tried several other brands but have found none to compare
with SOVEREIGN for workmanship, style, quality and
general appearance.
Just a few of these Suits left which must be cleaned out before
the time comes for ordering spring goods which will be upon us
very soon now.
Regular prices of these suits are from $24.00 to $32.00
Special Clearance Sale Prices of 33 1-3 per cent off
