HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1911
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
TO OPERATE
French Syndicate Acquires
Slate Creek Placer Leases
from Kildare Mining Co.
Tornado Kills Scores
Chicago: Scores of people were
killed by a tornado in Illinois, Wisconsin and New England slates
on Tuesday. The property loss
runs into millions. Cold weather
prevails throughout the East.
WILL EXPENDJ250.000
New Operators Expect to Send Men and
Supplies in Over Winter Trail Extensive Ground Prospected Favorably
and   will    Yield    Very Large   Profits. I
Developments of the past sea- j
son in the Omineca river placer,
district have removed all doubts |
as to the success of future operations  on   the   creeks   of the
famous  old  gpldfield.     In this
connection    the   important  announcement is made  that Slate
creek, covered by the leases of
the Kildare Mining company,   of
which H. M. Beach is the head,
is  to be worked  by a French
syndicate which has just taken
over the property.
The new operators, who have
guaranteed the expenditure of
$250,000 in development, will operate on a large scale, and are
now planning to send men and
supplies in to the creek over the
snow, using dog teams for transport. By adopting this plan
they can have everything in
readiness for actual mining at
the opening of the season.
��� The Slate creek leases included
in the deal adjoin the ground
which Huderle & Otterson are
engaged in developing, and tests
show it to carry excellent pay.
Hazelton a Central
Telegraph Station
By a change in the system, the
Hazelton office of the Government telegraphs has been made
a central relay station. Henceforth all messages to and from
points on the branch line which
runs to Prince Rupert and the
line running north to Dawson,
will be taken here and relayed to
their destination. The innovation, while an improvement on
the former system, entails much
additional work for the local
staff, which is to be increased by
the appointment of another operator. Jack Wrathall, who has
manipulated a key in the Hazelton office before, is now on his
way up the river to join the staff.
OF DOMINION PARLIAMENT
In Speech from the Throne Governor-General

Dominions ��� New   Senators   Appointed.
Famine in Russia
St. Petersburg: Eight million
people are in dire want, owing to
the failure of crops in twenty
Russian provinces. The premier
slated yesterday that $60,000,-
000 would be required for relief.
Australian Elections
Melbourne, Nov. 17: -The result of the state elections in
Victoria shows few changes in
the political complexion of the
constituencies. The Conservative government was sustained,
its majority being still over
twenty. This was the first
election in Victoria in which
women were allowed to vote.
RECOMMENOEO FOR MEDAL
ALPINE REGION SHAKEN
Earthquake  Causes  Panic  in   Cities   of
Switzerland, Being Felt Over
Wide Area
Berne, Nov. 17 : ���A violent
earthquake shock was felt
throughout Switzerland last
night. The disturbance was especially strong in the Alpine regions. In Geneva street cars
were derailed. Theater panics
occurred in Berne and Zurich.
The earthquake was felt throughout a wide area in central Europe, many castles and churches
being damaged. No estimate of
the loss is possible at present.
Bob McDonald's Heroism may  be  Recognized by Trustees of
Carnegie Fund
Steel Nearing  Provincial Line
Edmonton, Nov. 17:���The
Grand Trunk Pacific construction
crews have laid steel to a point
within three miles of the British
Columbia boundary. The Canadian Northern also has crews
close to the provincial boundary,
and there is keen rivalry between
the construction gangs of the
railways.
(Special  to The Miner)
Vancouver, Nov. 15:��� Leon
Benoit, director of the British
Columbia Coal syndicate, which
has thirty thousand acres of coal
lands in the Groundhog mountain
district, at the headwaters of the
Skeena, is in town. He stated
that he would bring to the attention of the trustees of the Carnegie fund the heroic achievement of Robert McDonald, the
Hazelton miner, and David Mow-
at, the Indian who assisted him
in his remarkable feat of transporting his sick partner, John
Blume, from the coal fields to
Hazelton.
Ottawa, Nov. 16:   In splendor
and impressiveness the ceremonial opening of parliament today
excelled anything in the history
of the capital.    The military display, seen amid bright sunshine
in a snowy landscape,   with the
stately parliament buildings as a j
background, formed a memorable:
picture.    Crowds filled the Commons and Senate chambers and
galleries. TheDukeof Connaught,
opening his first parliament as
Governor-general, made an  excellent impession.    In his speech .
from the throne,   which  he delivered in  English  and  French,
he expressed pleasure in meeting
the members of the first parliament of his term.   He was gratified to take up the duties of
viceroy  in this prosperous  and
growing   Dominion.     He foreshadowed  improved   trade   ar-!
rangements with the West Indies
and British Guiana as a step in |
the direction of wider exchange
of products between the various
countries of the Empire.    The
census,    he  said,   showed   thej
growth of the country to have
been substantial and satisfactory,
even though not up to expecta- j
tions.
Turning to the legislative pro-
gram, His Royal Highness stated
that bills would be introduced by i
which the government can secure,
through a commission, control of
the terminal grain elevators on
the Great Lakes.    -
The government also intended
to establish a permanent tariff
commission to investigate conditions as affected by customs
laws and secure information
which will furnish a more stable
and satisfactory basis for future
tariff legislation.
The selection of the best route
for the Hudson's Bay railway
would engage the immediate attention of the government.
Senator Lougheed, government leader in the Senate, introduced a formal bill, and the
members of parliament returned
to the Commons, where Premier
Borden introduced the formal
bill.
Prince Edward Island
Is Now Conservative
Two New Senators
Ottawa. Nov. 17:���A. S. Good-
eve. M. P. for Kootenay, has
been appointed assistant to the
chief whip. George Taylor, who
retired in favor of Finance Minister White, after being in the
'���Jouse for nearly thirty years,
has been appointed senator, in
succession to Sir John Carling,
who died last week. Rufus H.
Pope, son of Hon. J. H. Pope,
minister of railroads in the last
Macdonald Cabinet, has been appointed senator, to succeed the
late Senator Baker.
Charlottetown, P. E. I., Nov.
16:���The result of the two bye
elections held in this province
yesterday seals the fate of the
Liberal government. Premier
Palmer was defeated in Augustus
by Dr. Dewar, the Conservative
candidate, while in Belfast, Prof.
Alexander McPhail, Independent,
defeated Editor Nash, the government candidate. Before these
elections, the parties stood, Liberal sixteen, Conservative fourteen.
Nova Scotia Bye Elections
Halifax; Nov. 16: Conservatives captured two seats in the
Nova Scotia bye-elections yesterday. In Digby, Marshall defeated Wall and in Lunenburg,
Zwicker defeated Duff. The
opposition now holds thirteen
seats and the government twenty-
five.
Development of Coal Measures
in the Big Copper River Field
WILL SKATE ON LAKE
Athletic   Association   Constructs   Large
Rink and Club House
A Townsite Announcement
Telegraphic advices from Vancouver convey the information
that lot 851, which the Grand
Trunk Pacific announces as the |
site of its Hazelton station and
the official townsite, is to be
placed on the market in a few
days. It is understood that the
Natural Resources Security company, which is identified with the
new town, will devote its attention to the development of lot
852, which will probably be made
an addition to South Hazelton.
Aldous & Murray, the Hazelton agents for the G. T. P. town-
site, have been notified that full
information regarding the South
Hazelton program has been:
mailed from Vancouver, so that
the people of the town may look
for  details  of  the
within a few days.
proposition
Other sites  proposed  for the
skating   rink   proving   impracticable, the Athletic association
committee having the matter in !
charge reported at last Saturday's
meeting in favor of the Charleson
lake location, and  were empowered to make the necessary  arrangements for the establishment
and maintenance of a rink on the,
lake.   Tho committee, which con- j
sists of Rev. D. R. McLean, Ar-|
thur Skelhorne and A. C. Aldous, i
went energetically to work, with
the result that a rink of excellent
proportions has  been  prepared
for use by the hockey team asj
well as those who skate merely I
as a pastime.   The rink has been!
boarded to a height of four feet, I
and a large cabin has been built
and provided with a stove.   The,
building will serve as a dressing
room on the occasion of a hockey
match, while at other times It
will add greatly to the comfort
of skaters.
Season tickets for the rink, the |
price of which is $2, may be procured from the secretary, Roy
McDonell.
Although the coalfields lying
to the north are of great magnitude and promise a wonderful
production of fuel, they do not
by any means include all the valuable coal measures of Omineca
district. On the Copper river
there is a new field which appears
to be second only to the great
Groundhog country. F. B. Chet-
tleburgh, who is now in Hazelton,
informs the Miner that the work
of development on these properties, which are owned by the
Copper River Coal company, a
syndicate subsidiary to the
National Finance Co., is being
continued with good results.
The Copper river measures,
which are covered by 75 claims,
have long been known, but were
not located until April, 1909,
when J. K. Ashman and (!. L.
Faulkner staked the property.
The locators conveyed the claims
to the syndicate in the same
year. Some months ago English
capitalists, represented by R. H.
Fresby, secured an option on the
property at a high figure, but the
syndicate still continues working.
The property, which has been
examined and endorsed by experts of international reputation,
is situated at the confluence of
Coal creek and Copper river, 51!
miles above Copper City and 30
miles west of Seymour lake,
which is on the Bulkley side of
the Telkwa mountains, in Pine
creek pass. The railway may be
reached in about the same distance by taking the Kitseguecla
pass and following the river of
that name to its mouth, a few
miles below Hazelton.
Seven seams have been exposed

j by the work so far done.   These
vary in thickness from 28 inches
to 5 feet 5 inches of clean coal,
j with a strike of ten degrees north
jof northwest and pitching thirty
1 degrees from  the  horizontal on
' the outcrops.   Owing to the favorable nature of  the ground,
prospecting and development can
be prosecuted by means of tun-
nels for some time to come.
The coal is classed as bitumin- J
ous, and is of high grade, suitable not only for steaming, but,
being excellent coking coal,   isi
adapted to all smelting and metal-
lurgieal purposes. Analyses show j
a very low percentage of ash, the
maximum being three, with seven |
per cent water, 52 per cent fixed
carbon and  UN  per cent volatile
matter.    It returns 54  per cent
coke.
Under the direction  of F.   B.
ChettlebuEgh, development work
has been in progress for a year
and a half.   The "Six-foot" tunnel has been driven 156 feet on a|
seam carrying four and  a  half
I feet   of clean  coal,   and  has a;
depth on the seam of over eighty i
i feet.      Opposite     this    tunnel, \
\ where   the   same   seam   crops
across the creek, ground has been
bioken for a permanent working
tunnel, six by eight in the clear.
The crew of live men will contin-
iue work on this tunnel during the
winter.    There is.. prospect tunnel  112 feet long   and a large
number of cuts, pits and tunnels
varying in depth from fifteen to
forty feet.
The company has good buildings and plenty of supplies, which
were taken in from Hazelton
over the Telkwa pack trail.
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, Nov. 17:���Attorney-general Bowser and Commissioner of Lands Ross have
returned from Ottawa. Mr.
Bowser announces that the question of fishing licences will be
thoroughly investigated. Hereafter no licences will be issued
by the Dominion except to bona
fide operators of canneries, and
those held otherwise will be
cancelled. Premier McBride will
return on Monday. He visited
New York and is now in Chicago.
Cars for G. T. P.
(Special  In The Minor)
Vancouver, Nov. 17: The tug
Escort is towing the barge Georgian to PrinceRupert with rolling
stock for the G. T. P., including
three passenger coaches, one
baggage car and several freight
cars.
SKEENA FRUIT LANDS
Provincial   Official   Reports    Favorably
on Possibilities.
(Special   to The  Miner)
Victoria, Nov. 17: There is a
large acreage of farming land at
Meanskinisht and Kitwangak
which is well spoken of, and
also considerable arable land
around Hazelton, says J. F.
Carpenter, assistant provincial
horticulturist, in an exhaustive
report presented to the department of agriculture. During the
past summer Mr. Carpenter visited the districts reviewed in his
report, and gained a most favorable impression of the possibilities of the country. The report
is contained in bulletin No. 33,
which is a well illustrated, interesting and valuable treatise on
the fruit-growing possibilities of
the Skeena districts and Porcher
Island. The report states that
not much fruit land is available
in the neighborhood of Prince
Rupert, but speaks highly of the
country around Kitsumkalum
and Lakelse lakes. The G. T. P.
will provide a market for all that
can be produced in the district.

Peking, Nov. 16:���An Imperial
edict, issued today, announces
the formation of a cabinet by the
new minister, Yuan Shi Kai.
The ministry includes few Man-
chus and no nobles. The premier insists on being given a free
hand in the government, which
he intends to carry on with the
support of as many pro\ inces as
possible, allowing the remainder
to retain their independence for
the time being.
The southern half of the province of Fo Kian has passed into
the hands of the revolutionists,
who are planning an attack on
Peking in the near future.
The population of the city is
without arms and there are no
disaffected troops within immediate striking distance of the
capital.
Yokohama banks have made a
loan equivalent to $11,000,000 to
the Viceroy of Manchuria, which
is now threatened with internal
strife.
SILVER STANDARD PLANS
New Camp  Will   Accommodate Thirty
Men-Long Crosscut Tunnel
To Be Run
In preparation for the prosecution of their new plans for developing the Silver Standard group,
the management of the property
is now engaged in constructing
comfortable buildings in a better
location than the present camp.
The new buildings include cookhouse, bunkhouse, blacksmith
shop and barn, and will accommodate thirty men.
It is intended to drive a crosscut tunnel to tap the three veins
already disclosed and any others
there may be on the group. Surveys show that a tunnel 1300
feet long will crosscut the upper
vein at a depth of 600 feet. In
about a month, when the new
buildings are completed, ground
will be broken, and work on the
new tunnel'will proceed continuously with as large a crew as
can be worked to advantage.
Big Sum for Coal Mining
Victoria, Nov. 17: The Canadian Collieries, operated by
Mackenzie & Mann, will expend
$1,500,000 in the next twelve
months in the equipment and
improvement of the Cumberland
coal mines. Work is already
under way.
G. T. P. Owns Name
Vancouver, Nov. 16: The
Grand Trunk Pacific was today
granted an injunction in its suit
before Justice Morrison against
the Grand Trunk Pacific Transfer company of this city, to prevent the use by that concern of
the name Grand Trunk Pacific.
The court upheld the contention
of the railway company that the
words were part of its corporate
name and decided that no company had a right to use them
without the consent of the railway. THE OMINECA MINER. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1311

Renewed Activity in Placer Field ~
For over a score of years the placer diggings of the Omineca ��
river and its tributaries, which had produced millions of dollars in g
gold, have been practically abandoned by the individual miners, f-
who found that the crude hand methods of working the gravels @
were of no avail once the shallower and more easily worked deposits ��
had become exhausted. A few of the old-timers have continued g
to go into the Omineca every season, reaping rich rewards when j|
conditions favored them, but more often failing to make more than |
enough to pay their expenses. Large deposits of pay gravel g
were known to exist in the old channels, but these were difficult to |
reach without pumps and machinery, while the rich benches could =
only be worked by hydraulicking, requiring the construction of =
expensive Humes and the installation of plants which were expen- =
sive and hard to transport over the pack trails. These difficulties n
have until lately prevented the exploitation of the deeper gold =
deposits of the camp: but with the general development of the E
northern interior and the provision of better freight facilities to 5
Hazelton. which is the outfitting point for the mines, their revival ��
could not be longer delayed, and for the last two seasons there has ��
been a great deal of activity on the gold-bearing creeks. Thorough =
prospecting of the ground controlled by some half dozen large con- |
cerns has proved to their complete satisfaction that, with proper =
methods of operation, millions can be taken from the gravels of the =
district, and in consequence a number of large plants are to be in "*
operation next season, with more to come. The development of
the Kildare leases on Slate creek, as outlined in our news columns, j A Statement by Hays
is only one of the big projects of the immediate future. The con-' "The Grand Trunk system instruction of a thirty-mile road from Tatla lake, which is asked for eludes about 5,000 miles in round

formerly at Kitselas and of late
at Hazelton, has succumbed to
the stress of competition, and
will suspend publication at the
end of the month. The plant,
which reverted to the manufacturers, has been purchased by The

will nicely supplement our present plant, enabling us to handle
expeditiously anything in the

The building of commercial
vessels which can serve as
cruisers in time of trouble is
likely to be the eventual policy of
the Canadian government, according to an Ottawa dispatch,
which says this plan is now under
consideration, and that if a plebiscite is taken on the navy one of
the questions to be asked the
electors will be whether they
want the government to promote,
by subsidy, a fleet of cruisers
which will serve commerce in
time of peace and the British
navy in time of war. In ministerial circles it is said that the
navy question has not yet engaged the serious attention of
the government.

question of naval policy to a
referendum of the electors.
Owing to the lack of rain in
many parts of India, a famine is
imminent. The British government is taking steps to provide

Col. Wolfenden, has been filled
by the appointment of W. H.
Cullin, a practical printer of long
experience.
At Mexico City, Francisco I.
Madero was inaugurated president of Mexico, succeeding President De La Berra who filled in
the gap after the executive now
sworn in had ended the rule of
Porfirio Diaz.
War in earnest is being waged
by the temperance forces in Ontario, and on New Year's Day
nearly one hundred municipalities will vote on local option. Of
the 822 municipalities in the
province, 422 are dry.
There are twenty-one vacant
seats in the seventy which compose the college of cardinals. It
is expected that a number of the
vacancies will be filled at the
papal consistory to be held in

A San Francisco despatch says
that wireless records have been
broken by the establishment of
communication between the wireless station at that city and Ho-
kushu, the northern Japanese
station, 6,000 miles distant.
The people of China have little
faith in the promises of a constitution made by the throne being
carried out. A despatch to the
Chinese in San Francisco states
that the Emperor has fled from
Pekin and his whereabouts are
unknown.
The veteran statesman, Sir
John Carling, K. C. M. G., P. C,
is dead at London, Ont. He had
been ill for some months but

of pneumonia. Sir John had
held ministerial offices under
four administrations.
Oxford and Cambridge Universities are planning to send a
team to America next season for
an international match with Yale
and Harvard. The Englishmen
want to come early in June, so
that they can be home in time
for the Olympic games at Stockholm.
The result of the four by-elections in Alberta, which were won
by the Conservatives, proved a
surprise to the Liberals of the
province. The new Conservative
members, with the insurgent
Liberals in the legislature, may
force a general election in the
near future.
Official returns from several
constituencies are not yet available, so that the actual figures
showing the popular vote in the
recent election can not be given.
Returns so far compiled show a
total Conservative vote in the
Dominion of 569,670, as compared
with 531,896 Liberal votes.
The most significant work of
the recent convention of the
Western Automobile Clubs and
Highway Associations was the
formation of the Canadian Highway Association, for the purpose
of establishing and constructing
a great east and west road
through the Dominion from coast
to coaat.
At Trenton, N. J., there has
just begun a suit by the United
States government to dissolve
the Steel trust. The government
also asks for the dissolution of
thirty-six constituent or subsidiary companies which are alleged
to have combined in violation of
the Sherman anti-trust law to
maintain or attempt to maintain
a monopoly of the steel business.

the   presiding patriarch of the
Mormon Church, and right hand j
man   to   its   founder  and   first;

days illness of pneumonia.     He
was 79 years of age.     Patriarch
Smith was the sixth to be chosen
to his office, the only hereditary
one within the church.
In connection with the project |
of erecting a new depot and other
terminal improvements at Vancouver,   the    Canadian    Pacific
Railway has retained the services
of a   world-famous   New   York
architectural firm.    One of the
firm's   representatives has just:
completed the task   of   taking;
measurements     and    collecting j
data from  which  plans  can  be
worked out.
The report of the commissioners
who recently inquired into the
working of the British Railway
Conciliation Board has been
issued. The commission recommends the adoption of a new
scheme to be operative until November 6, 1914, by which all
questions affecting hours, wages
and conditions of service are not
to be settled by negotiation but
be referred to the Conciliation
Board.
A creosoting plant for the
treating of ties for the Canadian
Northern railway is being established at Fort Francis by a Scottish firm. It is the intention of
the company to have all of their
ties    creosoted   in   future    in
order to prolong their life. It is
also probable that experiments
will be made with creosoted poplar ties, owing to the growing
scarcity and consequently increased cost of harder wood now
used.
Recent political events, more
especially the murder of Premier
Stolypin at Kieff, have caused
the German authorities to redouble the precautions to prevent
any accident occurring to the German Emperor while travelling.
To those who are responsible, the
Kaiser's sudden and hasty movements are a matter of great concern and fresh regulations have
now been drawn up governing
the smallest details of the arrangements made for his safety.
At Winnipeg Judge Walker
sentenced John K. MacLeod to
three years and Gordon Nagle to
two years in the penitentiary,
the pair having confessed to robbing the North End branch of
the Union bank there of sums
totalling $8,000 while in its employ as bank clerks. The defalcations extended over a considerable period, and discovery of the
shortage being imminent, an attempt was made to destroy the
records by burning some of the
bank books.
The new Zeppelin airship "L.
Z. 9," built for the German war
office, has on her trial trips developed the speed of 21 metres
per second, and is thus the fastest airship in the world. The
superiority of airships over aeroplanes is rapidly being demonstrated, and that hitherto only
the speed obtained gave the latter an advantage. The speed of
62 miles an hour can be attained
by aeroplanes, but only by very
experienced pilots, while the
speed attained by the new airship
with perfect security works out
at 47 miles an hour. The "L. Z.
9" has two cars, and is propelled
by three motors, each capable of
developing 150 horse power.

In the stretch from Fraser Lake
to South Bulkley it is not yet too
i lute to find the interesting atmosphere of a passing age. Indian
pack trains are met with every
few hours along the road, the
head of the house riding a pony,
the squaw carrying a heavy pack,
with the newest addition to the
tribe strapped on top of all. in a
little wooden coffin arrangement,
the ponies grunting under such a
load as only an Indian would tie
on them, and even thedogs half
a dozen half-starved anil mangy
curs   packed to the limit.
At certain seasons, too, you
will meet the government pack
train, setting out to carry supplies lo all the telegraph stations
along the line as far north as
Alaska. This pack train, which
consists entirely of mules, is
operated by the famous old Cata-
I line, who came north to the Cariboo from Southern California
j more years ago than anybody can
remember and whose talk is a
rich blending of Spanish, English
and Indian.
The mule is a very valuable
pack animal. For his size and
weight he can pack much more
than a horse and he is also more
easily and cheaply fed. Most of
the mules now in service on the
trail were reared in the Cariboo
country, because at one time
mules were used exclusively for
freighting on the Cariboo road.
In a year or two more the government road from Fort George
to Hazelton will be linked up.
Not only this, but the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railroad will be
completed and between these two
the mode of travelling will be revolutionized. But in the meantime the history of the telegraph
trail, together with that of the
Cariboo road, should be carefully
collected for the government archives. The opening of Central
British Columbia will mean a
tremendous addition to the wealth
of this province, but a serious
loss in atmosphere. Today, for
example, Hazelton, where the government pack train outfits, is the
greatest pack train camp in North
America. Almost daily here, at
least during the summer season,
you can see pack trains outfitting
for all parts of the country west
of Fraser lake. The Babine, the
Omineca, Francois and Ootsa
lakes and north along the telegraph line to the Yukon these
points are all supplied from Hazelton.
While it will remain the distributing point after the completion
of the railroad, yet in point of
human interest, a railroad car
does not compare favorably with
a pack-horse. The diamond hitch,
the tinkling of the little bell on
the horses' neck, the straining of
'the ropes as the animal plods
along, the shouts of the driver
as he guides it back to the trail
from the tempting pastures in
the woods, these are little details
that  the  old-timer  will   miss.
French Naval Program
Paris, Nov. 16: The French
Parliament resumed  its session
: with several matters of great urgency and importance before the
chambers for consideration.   The
report of the navy committee of J
the Chamber of Deputies   was
presented and deals with the re- j
organization of the French navy,.
now admittedly in a chaotic con-;
dition.
M. Nail, the reporter of the!
navy committee, strongly emphasizes the position taken by
M. Delcasse, minister of marine,
who, from the moment of assuming that office, has proclaimed
that it is the duty ol' France to
restore herself immediately to the
position of the second naval power
of the world. The Socialists
strongly protest against this pro-'
gramme and will fight any
plan for the building of additional
battleships,
The report recommends a programme by which the effective
strength of the French navy shall
be brought by 1920 to twenty-
eight battleships, six to be of the
Patrie type, six of the Danton
type and sixteen super-Dread-
naughts to be built at the rate of
j two a year; ten scout cruisers,
fifty-two ocean-going torpedo
boats and ninety - four submarines, all to be incorporated in
the home Meet; also a fleet of ten
[ vessels for cruising in foreign or
colonial waters. The minimum
cost of construction involved  in
; the programme is estimated at
$280,000,000.

Forest Conservation
The progress of the conservation policy of Canada, as applied
to forest resources, depends
more upon the forestry branch
of the Department of the Interior
than upon any other organization.
Upon the technical knowledge
and executive ability of the officers of the forestry branch depends the future of the forest on
16,0P0,000 acres of Dominion
forest reserves, as well as on the
large area of non-agricultural
forest land in western Canada,
which for the good of the country
may yet be set aside as permanent forest reserves. In addition
to looking after Dominion lands,
the forestry branch is now being
asked by eastern land owners to
furnish advice as to the best
means of securing at the earliest
date a profitable crop of timber
on waste land or wood lots. The
proper administration of forest
lands requires a special knowledge of the trees best adapted
to each region, of their uses, and
of the markets. Further there
is needed knowledge of the merchantable species, so that it may
be known how rapidly they grow,
how they produce their seed,
when and under what conditions
the seed germinates, and in what
way the seedlings and young
trees are affected by their surroundings. Such knowledge is
gained only by long study and
experience. In order that the
new Rocky Mountain Forest Reserves may be administered according to the latest scientific
knowledge and the best experience, the Forestry Branch is now
making detailed studies of the
habits of the merchantable species of trees on the eastern slope
of the Rockies in Alberta, and
has sent one of the men in charge
of the work to study the systems
of forest management practiced
during the past few years by the
highly developed United States
forest service in the national
forests of Montana. The United
States foresters have spent large
sums of money and availed themselves of the experience of many
men in developing plans of lumbering which do not inconvenience the lumbermen but which
ensure the protection and reproduction of the forest, and the
Canadian Forestry Branch intends to benefit largely by their
experience.
Restricted Mail Service
Official notification is given by
the postal department of the arrangements for restricted winter
mails to Hazelton and other points
in this district. Owing to the
difficulties of transport during
the winter months, the mail service for the time being will be
necessarily restricted to first (letters and post cards) and second
(newspapers) classes of mail
matter.
Here are the places on the
Hazelton route to which third
and fourth-class matter can not
be forwarded while navigation is
closed, which is approximately
from November 1 to May 1: Aldermere, Burns Lake, Cedarvale,
Chicken Lake, Francois Lake,
Gitwangak, Glentanna, Hazelton,
Kispiox, Manson Creek, Sealey,
Silvorthorno,South Bulkley, Telkwa, Twenty Mile, Andimaul,

be taken from here by a pack
train  of horses, twelve animals
having been secured for the pur- j
pose of working on sections of |
the route  where sleighs cannot
be used because of the lack  of

two outfits being ready to go into

vice  between  Hazelton  and the |
end of steel.
Prince Rupert Lots By Auction
Lots in section two of Prince
Rupert townsite will be sold by
the G. T. P. Development company at auction on November 29.
A large number of investors from
outside points are expected to
attend the sale, which will take
place in Prince Rupert. The
company owns 585 lots in section
two, and these will all beolfered.
Bulkley Bridge Reopened
Repairs to the suspension
bridge over the Bulkley were
completed on Tuesday, the improved structure being immediately opened to traffic. The
widening and strengthening of
this bridge were very necessary
in view of the great amount of
traffic on the main road between
Hazelton and the Bulkley valley.

Big Logging Contract
The mill of the Interior Lumber company, on Two-mile creek,
is now in complete running order,
ancl is turning out lumber to full
capacity. Six four-horse teams
have begun hauling timbers from
the mill to Ross's tunnel camp.
In order that there may be a
sufficient reserve of logs during
the summer, when logging is a
matter of increased expense,
Manager C. M. Mackenzie has
let a contract for a million feet
of timber, to be cut during the
winter. The contractors are
now building camps, preliminary
to logging operations.
of the Chinese first division are
likewise Manchus and the city
police are for the most part
members of the same race.
As for the old style troops that
camp outside the city walls, they
are Chinese, but are of a type
which are honored by the Manchu title of "Bannermen" because their ancestors aided the
Manchu conquerors against their
own people. There is no question as to the loyalty of these
[ troops.
In   case   of  emergency,    the
Manchu   leaders  and  the court
] will probably seek refuge in  the
legation quarter here or in the
foreign settlements at Teintsin.
A private letter from an officer
of Yuan Shi Kai's staff says  the
rebel  leader,   General   Li Yuen
Heng,    makes    twenty-five   de-
, mands,   the most important of
I which is that the Imperial household proceed to Jehol with the
' entire court and  remain  there,
i receiving in return adequate pensions from the new government,
which is to be Republican.

In Chinese Capital
Pekin. Nov. 15: Reports that
this city has fallen into the hands
of the rebels are without foundation. There has been no fighting whatever here, and there is
no evidence that the Emperor or
the Imperial family have fled.
Prince Ching continues to act as
premier pending the arrival of
Yuan Shi Kai.
Nor is there any indication
; that Peking is endangered.
Foreigners in the various legations think it will be the last of
the important cities to go. The
presence of many Manchu princes
indicates their belief that Peking
is the safest place in the empire.
The Imperial Government has
concentrated here all the most
loyal and faithful troops in the
army and has craftily sent all
the doubtful regiments to far
distant points. The Emperor's
personal guard is an army division numbering 10,000 men, all
Manchus.    A number of officers

At the courthouse on Thursday
afternoon Assessor Homer sold
by auction a number of lots and
parcels of land, situated in various parts of the district, for unpaid taxes. A large list of
delinquent assessments had been
advertised, but many of the negligent owners had paid up before
the date of the sale. Some fair
prices were obtained for desirable pieces of land.
Returning from a visit to the
Harris Mines last evening, L. L.
DeVoin reported that excellent
progress in development was being made. The third set of timbers was put in the new tunnel
yesterday, while the shaft on

depth of 78 feet. In the bottom
of the shaft there is an excellent
showing of high grade galena
