THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER IN NORTHERN BRITISH
VOL. I, NO. 32
HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 1912
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
SENATE KILLS
Liberal Majority in Upper
House Slaughters Important Measures of Commons
SESSION ENDtlSATURDAY
Foster Slates Liberal Senators for Disregarding Wishes of People���Department of Mines Becomes Branch of
Interior���Goodeve's  Appointment
Ottawa, April 1:���As expected,
the first session of the twelfth
parliament prorogued on Saturday. As the initial session of
the new Conservative regime,
it was of unusual interest, while
much important legislation was
dealt with. The house sat for
143 days and passed 171 bills.
The old gentlemen of the senate
signalized the close of the session
by killing four bills which had
passed in the lower house. One
of these was the highways bill,
a measure providing for federal
assistance being given the various
provinces in the building of main
roads. The cost to British
Columbia of the defeat of this
measure is $54,000, that being
the sum allotted to the western
province by the ill-fated bill.
Hon. George Foster, commenting
on the fate of the highways bill
and other measures, grilled the
Laurier Liberal majority in the
senate for lightly ignoring the
will of the people'as expressed in
the measures passed by the lower
house.
Departmental changes mark
the close of the session, the department of mines, which, since
its establishment recently, has
been under control of the Inland
revenue department, is now made
a branch of the department of
the interior, under Hon. Robert
Rogers.
A. S. Goodeve, the Kootenay
member, has been appointed to
the vacancy on the board of railway commissioners caused by the
death ol' the late Hon. Thos.
Greenway. Goodeve will be the
western representative on the
commission. No date has as yet
been set for the by-election in
Kootenay to fill the vacancy
created by the appointment.
To Subsidize Drydocks
Ottawa, April 2: In the House
of Commons Mr. Monk's bill to
grant increased aid to drydocks
was passed, It increases the
capital cost on which the country
may pay interest from $4,000,00(1
to $5,000,000. To a question by
Mr. Pugsley, Mr. Monk said that
no special enterprise was in view.
He believed that before long the
opening of the Panama Canal
would make it necessary to con-
on the Pacific coast drydocks a
thousand feet long. The need at
Quebec was urgent.
He laid stress on the need of
antipicating future developments
and mentioned the type of dock
which was under consideration;
which was 1150 feet long, 110
feet wide and 47 feet deep.
There is no dock of such dimensions in the United States. He
stated that no application for a
subsidy was before the government.
No Opposition Leader
Victoria: Parker Williams,
Newcastle Socialist member,
says the two opposition members
will each play a lone hand.
Father of Waters
Spreads Destruction
Cairo, 111., April4:���Mississippi
river floods have done great
damage during the last four days
in eight states. Seven thousand
people are homeless through the
destruction of their houses, while
eisht thousand more have fled
from their flood - threatened
homes. A dozen are known to
be drowned. The property loss
to date is to be reckoned in
millions. The state and federal
governments are hurrying aid to
the afflicted in various parts of
the Mississippi valley. Nine
thousand acres here, including
the manufacturing section of
Cairo, are under water. Similar
reports come from a dozen towns
in Missouri, Kentucky and Arkansas.
ANOTHER BIG PLANT
FOR OMINECA CAMP
Vancouver Corporation Will
Develop Placer Ground on
Germanson Creek this Year
Premier Goes to London
Victoria, April 4: Hon. Richard McBride will leave for England on April 12. The premier
will spend ten days in London,
afterwards returning immediately to Victoria,
, (Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, April 3:���It is announced here that the Royal
Standard Investment Co., of
Vancouver, has acquired leases
covering several miles of placer
ground on Germansen creek, from
its junction with the Omineca
river, and is about to commence
active operations for the recovery
of gold from the gravels. Drills
have arrived in Vancouver for
shipment to the leases, via Hazelton, and as soon as the preliminary borings are made a dredge
will be installed on the ground.
A large hydraulic plant will be
operated this summer. This
plant has an average capacity of
2,500 cubic yards of gravel every
twenty-four hours. An' expert
has examined the company's
holdings and has sent in a highly
favorable report, indicating that
vast wealth is to be taken out of
the Omineca placers. The deputy
mining recorder for the Manson
Creek district, in a letter to the
company, says it hasten miles of
first-class ground known to carry
pay. It is stated the company
has refused one million dollars
for its holdings. R. I). Feather-
stonhaugh, who installed the first
hydraulic plant in Atlin six years
ago, is to superintend [ the company's operations, and will leave
for Hazelton in June, with his
outfit. He expects to have the
plant in operation by July 15.
Athletic Association
A general meeting of the Hazelton Athletic Association will be
held in the reading room, over
Adams' on Tuesday evening next
at 8 o'clock. Important business.
All members and those interested
are requested to attend.
Silver Standard Working
The recently-installed plant at
the Silver Standard is working
smoothly. The number 5 Cameron pump quickly cleared the
shaft of water. The workings
are being retimbered and straightened where necessary, and development will be actively prosecuted with a full force of men,
AGITATORS WOULD STOP ALL
Laborers and Graders on Canadian Northern
Strike at Behest of I. W. W.-Will Try
To Organize Workers on Grand Trunk
Pacific in British Columbia
(Special to The Miner)
Yale, April 4:���On Saturday a
strike involving nearly six thousand laborers and graders employed on Canadian Northern
construction between Hope and
Kamloops, was instituted, the
men, who are chiefly foreigners
from Europe, demanding higher
pay and shorter hours. It is fully
expected that the trouble will
reach a peaceful settlement within a few days. The statement is
made that the Industrial Workers
of the World, which organized
the strike on the C. N. R. here,
is endeavoring to carry disaffection to the camps of the G. T. P.,
as well as to the C. N. R. on
Vancouver Island. The I. W. W.
in Edmonton is seeking to stop
work on the British Columbia
sections of the G. T. P. as well
as on the prairies.
The men here are asking a
minimum wage of three dollars,
and a nine hour day. They have
been receiving from $2.50 to$3.25
for a ten hour day. Half a dozen
subcontractors are affected by
the strike. They declare they
will resist the demands to the
end.   No other part of the C. N.
R. is yet involved.
Strikers Leave Country
Vancouver, April 4:���Several
hundred strikers from the C. N.
R. have reached here. All apparently had money to pay their
way. Many of the men have
gone over the border. The best
of order prevails along the line
of construction from Hope to
Kamloops, owing to the presence
of the provincial police and the
rigid enforcement of the liquor
law. The statement that one of
the reasons for the strike was a
lack of sanitation in the camps
is denied.
Sir William Mackenzie, in Toronto today, said he would let
the men strike until they were
sick of it. He maintained that
only a small part of the line was
affected and the delay of a few
weeks would not be serious. The
sub-contractors take the same
view.
Dynamite Threatened
Vancouver, April 4,���It is
stated here today that several
Canadian Northern contractors
have received letters threateuing
the use of dynamite to blow them
up if the demands of the I. W.
W. are not complied with.
Motor to Bulkley
W.J. "Wiggs"0'Neil is bringing a seven-passenger touring car
to Hazelton, for use on the
Hazelton-Bulkley Valley run.
British Coal Miners
Vote to Remain Out
To Use Coal Underground
New York, April 2: ��� A proposal which if adopted would revolutionize the coal mining busi-
iness of the world, has been
launched by Sir William Ramsay,
the noted English scientist. He
suggests that much of the expense of coal mining and handling
might be avoided if the coal were
turned into gas in retorts in the
bowels of the earth. The gas
thus generated could either be
distributed by pipe lines, or used
at the pit head for producing
electricity which could be distributed from there.
Many Lost In Wreck
Perth, West Australia, April 3:
The passengers and crew off the
British steamer Koombana, 130
in all, were drowned in the
wrecking of the vessel of the
northwest coast of Australia during a typhoon.
New C. P. R. Line
Winnipeg, April 3:���The policy
of expansion adopted by the Canadian Pacific provides for a vast
program of railway building in
the near future. One of the
principal features of the new plan
of extension is a through line
from Red Deer, Alberta, into
British Columbia, joining the
main line of the system at Kamloops.
Sinking Resumed
Plans for the development of
the American Boy group have
been extended to provide for the
l-esumption of sinking on the rich
No. 3 vein. The shaft, now 87
feet deep, is to be continued at
once. A horse whim has been
constructed for hoisting from this
shaft. The tunnel on No. 2 vein
is making good progress and the
face shows excellent ore.
Ocean Freights Affected
New York, April 2:-���Trans-
Atlantic freight rates are to be
heavily increased as a result of
the British and German coal
strikes. According to Berlin
despatches, a conference of
Hamburg and Bremen shipping
interests decided to increase the
carrying charges 10 per cent to
distant ports and 15 per cent
for coasting service. This advance is to cover the increased
cost of coal, and will continue in
force until fuel is again obtainable at normal prices.
Reckless Aviator Killed
San Francisco, April 3: Aviator Rodgers, the first airman to
fly across the continent, was
killed today at Long Beach,
through his planes failing to
work when he encountered a
flock of gulls during a reckless
exhibition of flying.
First Football Game.
Although the athletic grounds
are still soft, a football game
was played yesterday between
teams representing the upper
and lower sections of the town,
the latter won the match, by two
goals to none.
Fernie Miners May Strike
Advices from Fernie are to the
effect that another coal strike in
the Crow's Nest mines is probable. It is reported the miners
are considering the inauguration
of a general strike on May 1.
London, April 4:���The Federation has advised the striking coal
miners throughout Great Britain
to resume work, although the
vote recently taken b y the
strikers showed a majority of
40,000 in favor of continuing the
strike. Four hundred thousand
ballots were cast.
Taylor Too Speedy
(Special to The Miner)
Victoria, April 5:���Hon. Thos.
Taylor, minister of works, popularly known as "Good Roads"
Taylor, was today fined for exceeding the speed limit in his
automobile. It was his second
fine for the offence of speeding.
Hon. Dr. Young, the provincial
secretary, was a passenger in tttf"
car.
Bridge Steel Arrives
Part of the steel superstructure
for the big bridge at Skeena crossing is now on the ground. The
bridge is to be full rivetted as it
is placed in position, and will thus
take some time to complete.
AMERICAN COAL MINERS
START kW STRIKE
Pennsylvania Mine Workers,
To Number of Half a Million, Have Stopped Work
AN ANSWER
Great Britain Devotes Thirty-
two Million Dollars to
Emergency Naval Fund
HAS A RECORD SURPLUS
Large Excess of Revenue Over Expenditure���Entire Sum Placed in Reserve
For Defence as Reply to Germany's
Announcement of  Her  Program
Philadelphia, Pa. April 5:-The
threatened strike of American
coal miners has been inaugurated,
and at present appears likely to
rival in seriousness the great
strike in Great Britain. Nearly
half a million men are out today,
and large accessions to the ranks
of the strikers are expected
within the next few days. Many
of the unions which have gone
out have declared against any
compromise, announcing that
they will not accept even the
required increase of ten per cent
in wages unless the operators
also grant them full recognition
of the union. Grave fears are
entertained that paralysis of
transportation and industry will
result unless an early settlement
of the trouble is arranged. Representatives of the unionists will
meet the operators' committee in
conference on the tenth of April,
when it is hoped the resumption
of work will be arranged.
London, April 2:���The British
budget, presented in the house
of commons today, is remarkable
as showing the largest surplus
in the history of the empire. The
chancellor of the exchequer reports an excess of revenue over
expenditure of $32,000,000. The
surplus, it is estimated, would
have amounted to nearly $35,-
000,000 had it not been for the
great coal strike, which has had
such a paralyzing effect upon the
trade and commerce of the nation
that the general loss has already
been greater than might have
been occasioned by war with a
foreign country.
The estimated expenditures for
the fiscal year of 1912-13 total
$934,000,000,  being an increase
| of $39,000,000 over the total for
j the last fiscal year.
The government has decided
i to devote the huge surplus to the
J creation of a naval emergency
I fund.     Its action is generally
| favored,   being  regarded   as  a
j dramatic  and   fitting   reply  to
Germany's announcement of her
new naval program,  which has
been widely discussed.
H. B. C. Steamer Plans
Early next week, J. C. Boyd,
manager of the Hudson's Bay
store here, will leave for Port
Simpson, to arrange for the distribution among the H. B. C.
posts of the stock of the Port
Simpson store, which is to be
discontinued. The steamer Port
Simpson will bring a full cargo
of goods up the river as soon as
navigation opens, and is expected
to remain on the Skeena during
the early part of the season at
least. It is probable the boat
will make one or two trips on the
Stikine during the summer, to
carry hunting parties to the big
game country on the headwaters
of that river. She will connect
at Wrangel with the coast steamers and go as far up the Stikine
as Telegraph Creek, a distance
of 160 miles. The Stikine is a
very swift flowing river, and the
voyage up, which takes two and
a half days, is compensated for
by the return journey, which
only takes half a day. The river
is less dangerous than the Skeena,
having fewer shallows, though
there is plenty of excitement in
warping over the riffles and
through the rapids.
Germany's Big Plans
Berlin, April 2;���The establishment of two additional corps
for the Prussian army, increases
in the Saxon and Bavarian
armies, and the establishment of
an extra naval battle squadron,
is Germany's answer to the recent
speech of Winston Spencer
Churchill, given by the submission to the federal council of the
new army and naval bills.
Details of the measures appear
in the Nord Deutsche Allgemeine
Zeitung. For the extra battle
squadron three additional battleships and two cruisers are to be
constructed before 1920. The
estimated additional annual cost
is$24,250,000 in 1912, $31,750,000
jin 1913, and $28,500,000 yearly
after that.
The personnel of the navy will
! be increased by 75 officers and
1,600 men annually until 1920,
over and above the increases provided for in the existing naval
law.   The  bill provides for an
! increase in submarines and for
j several dirigible balloons.
The army reforms will increase
!the peace footing by 29.000.
They include the creation of two
field artillery regiments, one
Saxon cavalry regiment, one
Prussian infantry regiment, fourteen additional third battalions
to bring up thc strength of all
regiments from two to thsee bat-
| talions, and the introduction of
machine gun companies in every
existing regiment. New corps
will be stationed on the French
and Russian frontiers. The bill
provides increased pay for the
men.

No. 32.
Falsehoods Failed To Win
In Prince Rupert, when the result of the election became
known, a meeting was held in the Empress theater, and William
Manson received warm congratulations on his triumphant return.
The News, the Liberal organ, says: "While heartiest applause
rang out with immense good will for William Manson, the old love
in Prince Rupert politics, to whom Prince Rupert still proves true,
there was applause scarcely less vociferous for Alex. Manson, the
straightforward fighter for the Liberal cause in the campaign."
Alex. Manson, the defeated Liberal candidate, in his address,
told thc crowd that his battle had been a clean one. Just how-
clean it was, on his part, may be judged from one or two instances
of his campaign tactics. In Hazelton, after his opponent had gone
to the coast, the Liberal told the electors that William Manson had
promised twenty-five liquor licenses between Prince Rupert and
Hazelton, and the speaker made a great point of the prospective
license-holders who were going about working for the Conservative
"with licenses in their pockets." This lie was not deemed suitable
for use in Prince Rupert, the presumption being that Alex. Manson
thought the coast people less credulous than those of Hazelton. At
a meeting held after returning to his home city, according to his
newspaper, he said:
"Along the Skeena river there are twenty-five applicants for
licences. No one known whether they will get licenses or not until after election.   If you  are good you get one; if not you don't."
Since the twenty-five-license lie would not serve in Prince Rupert, the budding statesman had to find other ammunition, and
this, according to the News, is what he told his hearers:
"At Hnzelton I found the names of many old timers missing
from the voters' list. I find that it is the practice to place on the
list3 only those known to be Conservatives, and the declarations of
those found to be Liberals are not turned in to the registrar of
voters.''
We have no hesitation in declaring this allegation a falsehood.
The discussion of campaign issues after an election is hardly a
profitable pursuit, as a rule; but when a candidate, however small
his caliber, seeks to bolster up a weak cause by disseminating lies,
every honest man, be he Liberal or Conservative, will agree that
ha should be called to account. t
It may be that in time to come Alex. Manson will again seek
the suffrages of the electors of Skeena. Should he ever again appear as a candidate, we do not doubt that the people will remember
his "straightforward" and "clean" methods in the recent election.
If they do remember, his statements will require corroboration
before the electors will accept them for truth.
A Modern Blue Law
It is hard for the people of Hazelton to understand why they
should be compelled to regulate their conduct according to the
ideas of a few cranks in other communities. Yet such appears to
be tho case. The bill regulating the hours during which poolrooms
may be kept open, which is now in operation, imposes restrictions
which are hound to prove irksome to many citizens of this and
other towns in the district. That a man who enjoys the recreation
of a game of billiards in the evening should be compelled to put up
his cue and go home or to a barroom at eleven o'clock does not
look like a square deal. With the clauses keeping young lads out
of the pool rooms and preventing gambling games we have no fault
to find; but we must join in the general protest against the irksome
and unnecessary closing regulations, which not only work a
hardship upon the owners of the well-conducted billiard halls of
Hazelton and the district, but also cut off citizens from many hours
of harmless recreation.
The Attorney-General, we are given to understand, has discretionary powers in the enforcement of such acts as the one in
question. It is to be hoped he will not insist upon the early closing
of poolrooms in Hazelton and other frontier towns, which cannot
be judged by the same standards as older communities where, it is
fair to presume, the patrons of such establishments have homes to
go to when they are obliged to leave their games of billiards or
pool. In Hazelton the poolrooms are free clubs where opportunities
for innocent recreation are afforded to hundreds who have no other
place of harmless amusement to go to. If such blue laws as the
new act are to be enforced, we shall have quite a legitimate
grievance against our legislators.
Another Big Mining Enterprise
A Vancouver despatch conveys news of another large plant
which is to be installed this season in the Manson Creek district,
this time on Germansen creek. The Miner's prediction that the
Omineca placers would soon resume a position in the list of our
wealth-producing resources bids fair to be realized before the season is far advanced. There is information of five different concerns
which will operate on a large scale on the Omineca and its tributaries, while the smaller operators will undoubtedly bring out their
share of gold. The revival of interest in these rich fields, consequent upon the provision of better transportation facilities, means
much to Hazelton. Already the business men of the town find a
noticeable increase in the output of supplies, due to the outfitting
of parties for Manson Creek and nearby districts.
Under the new regulations of
thc federal department of fisheries, which will hereafter govern
all legal proceedings in connection
with fishery law infractions in
this province, the open season for
trout fishing begins on May 1st
ancl will continue until the 15th
November. In as much as there
has been considerable difference
of opinion expressed as to the
status of the steelhead - although
scientists are practically unanimous as to its identification with
the trout family ���a special section has been incorporated in new
Dominion regulations for British
Columbia specifically defining the
open seasons for steelhead. The
section dealing with the steelhead is numbered 20, and provides that no one "shall take
steelheads from the 15th November in each year to the 25th
March following, both days inclusive, in the non-tidal waters in
British Columbia, and in the tidal
waters thereof no one shall take
steelheads from the 1st January
to the 25 March following, both
days inclusive."
With respect to the close season
for trout, section 22 reads:
1. No one shall take trout of
any kind from the 15th November in each year to the 25th
March following, both days inclusive, except in the waters of
the interior portion of the province east of the 120th meridian,
where no one shall take trout of
any kind from the 15th November in each year to the 30th day
of April following, both days inclusive.
"2 No trout of any kind under
eight inches in length shall be
taken from the waters of British
Columbia, and, if taken, shall be
immediately returned to the
water, alive and uninjured. No
trout under three pounds in
weight shall be bought, sold or
exposed for sale in the province
of British Columbia, nor shall any
trout be bought, sold or exposed
for sale during the closed season
provided therefor.
"3. Fishing for trout through
the ice is prohibited."
It is understood that the arrangements of the fisheries department of Canada under the
new administration provide for
the establishment of rearing
ponds in connection with the
game fish hatchery at Cowichan
Lake, where trout of all sizes may
be cared for, from fingerlings up
to fish of one year old.
It is understood to be the intention of the department authorities to provide for a series of
most interesting and advantageous experiments at the Cowichan hatchery in the feeding
of trout and salmon in fresh
water, with a view to ascertaining the best condition for developing these two splendid fish and
determining how long the salmon
will live in fresh water under
super-advantageous food conditions. Such experiments have
never heretofore been tried on
the American continent,
although in Paris salmon have
been preserved alive and in good
condition at the Trocadero Gardens for as long as five years in
fresh water.
Thc possibilities of success in
these experiments, which, it is
earnestly to be hoped, will be undertaken at the first opportunity,
will at once impress themselves
upon all fishermen and students
of piscatorial science.

Predatory   Japs
In consequence of complaints
from Porcher Island, near Prince
Rupert, that a band of Japanese
have been cutting cordwood on
pre-emptions for the purpose of
selling to the canneries, Inspector
McKay, of the timber lands department, has issued instructions
to Capt. McCoskrie, the agent at
Prince Rupert, to seize all wood
so cut, and to lay information
against any of the men who can
be found. In addition the can-
nerymen and the lumber mills in
the district have been notified
that they must not purchase any
timber or cordwood from these
unlicensed loggers.
China's Finances
London, April 2:���The Pekin
correspondent of the Daily Telegraph says the most important
feature in reference to the proposed loans is the struggle to
obtain control of the silver market in China, inasmuch as the
virtual free coinage of that metal
which is inevitable, means an
endless demand for silver. At
present observers believe that the
success of the Anglo-Belgian loan
is a healthy symptom since the
methods of the four-power group
were becoming bureaucratic and
inelastic.
It is believed in Pekin, according to the correspondent, that the
biggest of India's silver buyers
are behind the new development
and that silver will reach the
highest level in years during the
coming summer. In reference
to the foregoing, it is understood
in London that the Sassoons. the
wealthy Indian London bankers
are practically identical with the
Anglo-Belgian syndicate which
has taken up the new Chinese
loan.

TO CANADIAN ARCHITECTS
Health Rules
There are many simple rules
taught by syndicates and schools
which the man who would be
healthy must obey. Eat the
things that you detest���hemlock
sawdust is the best���and for
breakfast drink a coffee made of
hay. Chew your victuals for a
week, chew them till your jawbones creak, and you'll gain a
pound a minute by the watch;
or���says t'other rigmarole���swallow loaves and fishes whole and
you'll soon be fit to take a fall
from Gotch. If for years of life
you hope, never touch a drop of
dope, and you're sure to live
forever, gay and blithe; but (say
others) for your ills let the druggist furnish pills, and the sawbones cut your leg off with a
scythe. Leave your couch at
early morn when you hear the
rooster's horn, for the early
bird's the one that catches
worms; but by other schools it's
said that you ought to stay in
bed, for the morning air is
simply rank with germs. Follow
all the helpful rules of the syndicates and schools, and the flesh
will soon be growing on your
slats, and you'll warble wildly
well in your cozy padded cell,
while you take your head apart
to count the bats.   -Walt Mason.

The cause of the Glacial Period
is unknown. Theories to account
for it are very well supported by
facts, but no evidence is avail-
able that is not open to objection.
Indeed there are those who deny
that there ever was a Glacial
Period and who seek to explain
the Phenomena attributed to it in
some other way. Many readers
may be familiar with Ignatius
Donnelly's Ragnarok, in which
he seeks to show by reference to
certain aspects of the Drift and
to older myths and legends of
mankind, that most of the so-
called glacial phenomena can be
best explained by supposing the
earth to have been in collision
with a comet. His book is very
readable for the facts set forth in
it. His arguments at times
strained to the breaking point.
Without taking this writer seriously, he may be said to represent
the extreme school of those who
believe the Glacial Period was
due to astronomical causes, that
is, to causes external to the earth.
We shall deal first with the
astronomical theories.
Fossil remains prove that at a
time antecedent to the distribution of the Drift, which, as was
pointed out in a previous article,
is the geological term for sand,
gravel and clay, a much warmer
temperature prevailed in high
latitudes than now is found there.
It is an established fact that in
what is known as the Tertiary
Period in geology the temperature of the North Temperate and
Artie Zone9 was much warmer
than it now is. A9 these articles
are being written for the information of those, who have paid
little attention to such matters,
it may be added that the proof
of this arises from the fact that
in the rocks of the Arctic Zone.
in a region now now eovuxcl with
ice perennially, fossil remains are
found of plants, which now only
flourish in tropical regions. The
existence of a prolonged period of
warm climate followed by a
period of very cold climate may
be regarded as established beyond
all room for doubt. The question
to be considered is what caused
this great difference. The supporters of the astronomical theory
offer various suggestions in explanation.
One of these is based upon the
fact that the Sun and its attendant planets has been shown to
be moving through space, and it
is generally believed that this motion is around one of the stars in
the group known as the Pleiades.
The theory is advanced that in
this motion through space the
solar system is swept through
strata lof varying temperature.
This is pure supposition, for it is
not known that any such strata
exist. There are certain facts
which seem more easily explain-1
able upon the supposition that all
space is not uniform in temperature, electrical intensity and |
otherwise, than upon any other
hypothesis; nevertheless this
suggestion is really nothing more
than a guess advanced to meet
the difficulties presented by other I
theories.
A second proposed explanation i
is based  upon  what seems to be,
an established fact.    It is known I
that there arc swarms of meteors
in  space.     Whether   these   arei
connected with our solar system
or are independent members of i
some greater system is unknown.
We know that twice a year the
earth passes through a meteoric:
swarm,   which  in some years is i
very much more numerous than |
in others. An astronomical theory
has been advanced by some authorities,   and  been  accepted as
not altogether improbable, that
the heat of the Sun is maintained
by the impact of the  meteors
upon   it.    We can easily prove
that a thing may be made hot
by a succession of blows. If you
take a hammer and strike a piece
of board a number o f sharp
strokes in the same place you
will find the board warmer in
the place struck than elsewhere.
The impact of many meteors upon
the Sun would undoubtedly raise
its temperature, and so it is suggested that the Sun plunged into
the Stream and increased its heat
considerably during the Tertiary
Age, and then passed into a
stratum of space barren of meteors, and consequently grew
colder and hence arose the Glacial
Period. A variation of this theory
is that a great comet may have
plunged into the Sun and increased its heat during the Tertiary age. This theory has more
probability to recommend it than
the one just referred to.
A third theory is based upon
the known fact that the condition of the Sun is one of constant change. Imagination cannot conceive of the tremendous
magnitude of the changes constantly going on in our great
luminary. We frequently read
of Sun spots, and some of us
have seen them. These spots are
great chasms in the envelope of
the Sun, and are sometimes so
vast that if the earth could be
dropped into one of them it would
be in proportion like dropping an
egg into a coffee pot. The telescope shows us that at times
tongues of flaming matter, long
enough to wrap the earth around
ten times, will dart out from the
surface of the Sun. These things
show the Sun to be a globe in
constant and tremendous activity, varying from time to time.
It is suggested that during the
Tertiary Age the activity was
great, and hence  greater heat
was given off, and that this activity was followed by a period
of lost activity and consequently
of less heat, and then the earth
become ice-coated.
A fourth explanation is that
the earth's axis shifted during
the Glacial Period. This theory
has found a great many supporters, but it seems open to insuperable objections. It is not reconcilable with the distribution of
the Drift. It also seems to be
too great a cause for such a result as it is supposed to have
produced. It is as though one,
having found a broken egg-shell,
should argue that it must have
been hit with a club.
A fifth astronomical explanation put forward is that there
have been several glacial periods
and will be more, these recurring
regularly with intermediate
periods of higher temperature.
These changes may be due, it is
suggested, to the precession of
the equinoxes.
Aldermere News
Aldermere, April 2:���A man
named Dow, who was bookkeeper
for Foley, Welch & Stewart some
time ago, and who of late has
been keeping books for Subcontractor Carlson, disappeared
from the Carlson camp two days
before the election and has not
been heard of since, although
search parties have been out
looking for him.
The Grand Trunk Pacific now
has eight resident engineers between Aldermere and Burns
Lake, their stations being as

"A rattling good smoker" was

evening.    The auditorium   was of the smoker.   The association
filled    by    the    crowd   which | has demonstrated again that it is
responded to a call for several of

were greatly enjoyed. Charles

James A. Riley, who officiated j
as chairman, was never at a loss
for the right word, and kept
things working smoothly
throughout the evening, while
the various entertainers, without
exception, made palpable hits.
The chief features of the evening were the boxing contests,
which delighted the spectators.
"Scales"Chipman, the star boxer
of the G. T. P. engineering staff,
came over from New Hazelton,
accompanied by "Paddy" Ryan
and quite a number of other good
fellows, and met Paddy McEwen
of the Ingineca in a classy exhibition bout which was roundly
applauded. Challenged by Charles Hunter, Mr. Chipman again
entered the ring for a two round
go with the ' 'Friend of the Common People," which proved to
be one of the most amusing features of the bill.

organizations of Hazelton.

Constituency with Optimistic   View of Its  Future.
"Conditions in Atlin are especially satisfactory and encouraging," says Hon. Dr. Young, who
recently returned from the camp,
"and the gold output for the season promises to eclipse that of
any year since the birth of the
district as a placer field. Last
season the gold commissioner's
statement shows approximately
$300,000 to have been the gold
yield of the district, but as the
official record takes cognizance i j^

Perpetual   Pioneer
The No. 10 and No. 11
Visible Remington Models
arc the latest expressions of
Remington leadership. They
represent (he sum total of all
typewriter achievement���past
and present.
They contain every merit
that the Remington has
always had and every
merit that any writing
machine   has   ever  had.
They contain, in addition,
new and fundamental
improvements that no typewriter has ever had; among
them the First Column Selector, the First Built-in
Tabulator and the First Key-Set Tabulator. The Model
11 with Wahl Mechanism is also the First Adding and
Subtracting Typewriter. These improvements are the
latest contributions to typewriter progress, and they are
Remington contributions���every one.
The Remington, the  original   pioneer  in  the   typewriter
field, is the present day pioneer in all new developments
of the writing machine.

and as a consequence everybody
is feeling satisfied and contented
in the district and money is
plentiful. On Spruce creek there
is every prospect of a bigger output for this financial year than
during the past two. All the
miners working in the district are
making money ancl happy.
"Extensive preparations are
being made, too, by the companies operating in this field, to extend their scope of action during
the coming season. On Birch
creek also the season's results
have been most satisfactory,
while on Boulder creek the
French company has been workmen on the lay all winter, with
good returns.
China's Gay Flag
The national passion for symbolism and love of the mysterious
is expressed in the new flag of
the Chinese Republic. It is interesting to dissect the composition of the latest national emblem, which lias all but been accepted by several of the civilized
nations as the New Standard of
Old China.
In the new Chinese flag there
are five colors, blue yellow, red,
black and white.
Geographically, blue in Chinese
"tsin" means the east, yellow,
or "huang," is the centre, red,
or "tche," is thc south, white,
lor "pai," is the west, while
black, or "he," is the north.
Figuratively speaking, there-
i fore, the new flag is a symbolical
1 map of the new republic.
The second peculiarity about
: the new flag is that it represents
l the five elements of honor in
I Chinese philosophy.
White, for instance, means
i metal, blue is wood, black is
j water, red is fire, while yellow
' represents the earth.
