VICEROY OF INDIA WOUNDED
D�� NATIVE FANATIC'S
Attempted Assassination of Lord and Lady Harding While
Making Ceremonial Entrance Into Delhi���Attendant Instantly Killed and Viceregal Howdah Destroyed by Explosive Missile Thrown From Roof
Delhi, India, Dec. 23 :���Baron
and Baroness Hardinge, viceroy
and viceriene of India, miraculously escaped assassination by a
native fanatic today while making
their ceremonial entry into Delhi,
the new imperial capital of India.
The splinters, of a powerful
bomb, which killed one native
attendant, and injured another,
penetrated the back and shoulder
of the viceroy, and he was also
wounded in the neck by the
screws with which the bomb was
filled, and which passed through
his helmet. The doctors who
removed the metal splinters from
the wounds declared it was marvelous that the viceroy escaped
fatal injuries.
Lady   Hardinge,   immediately
after the explosion,  asked her
^husband if he was hurt.     He
replied:   "I am all right.    Go
on."
Lady Hardinge then said :���
"We can not. There is a dead
man behind.".
The elephant on which they
were riding halted and the vice
roy tried to stand up, but reeled
and fainted, and the officials who
gathered around had much difficulty in removing him from the
elephant's back.
The howdah in which he and
Lady Hardinge was seated was
blown into matchwood.
A large gathering of troops,
officials, and Punjab chiefs was
present to welcome the viceregal
party. Its splendid elephant
procession had just left the railway station, passing through
Chandal Chowk, when the bomb
was thrown. It was hurled by a
man standing on a house top and
it struck the howdah in which
Lord and Lady Hardinge were
riding. The attendant, holding
a large parasol over the regal
pair, was instantly instantly
killed as the bomb exploded. The
bomb was a powwful one.
The attempt on Baron Hard-
inge's life roused feelings of intense indignation, both among
the natives and the British officers present, as he is one of the
most popular men who ever
ruled India.
TELEGRAPH LINES
DAMAGED DY STORM
Heavy winds on Wednesday
night played havoc with the telegraph line south of Hazelton, and
for three days The Miner has not
received its regular telegraphic
news. The line to Prince Rupert
was also down for a couple of
days, owing to mud slides near
Nicholl. This line was repaired
this morning, however, and The
Miner succeeded in obtaining a
few despatches by wireless. The
telegraph linemen are working
energetically on the damaged
portions of the line to the south,
and the officials expect to have
communication re-esta b 1 i s h e d
within a few hours.
WILL LET LIBERALS
DO ALL TALKING
Many Lost in Wreck
St. Johns, N. F., December 23:
���Capt. Barr and the twenty-one
sailors who perished in the wreck
of the steamer Florence Friday
on the rocks near St. Shotts,
were foiled in a desperate effort
to save their lives, according to
Mate J. Hedley and two members
of the crew who arrived last
night at Trepassey, almost exhausted.
Capt. Barr and the entire crew
made a landing on a shelf of rock
soon after the steamer struck,
but the high cliffs on all sides
made it impossible for them to
escape, and the rising tide compelled them to return to the ship.
Later Hedley and four of the
crew took a small boat and succeeded in making a landing. Before others could follow them, all
the other boats were washed
away.
Ottawa, Deo. 23: - The Evening
Citizen says: "That the memorable speech of Hon. Geo. E. Foster on Wednesday on the Naval
Bill is the last word in the discussion is the of iqjqn of prominent Conservatives*TTere. When
the House resumes a few on the
Government side may speak, but
it is considered that the ground
already had been completely
covered. The system of putting
up speaker for speaker only tends
to aid the Opposition if any
blockade is designed, and so it is
said to be probable that the field
of discussion will be abandoned
to the Liberals. The Government side is likely to sit tight
and let the others do all the talking, with the view that this will
result in the conclusion being
hastened."
Train Was Delayed
(SpaOlSl   tO Tho Miller)
Prince Rupert, Dec. 28:
Thursday's Hazelton express,
which was delayed by mud slides
near Nicholl, arrived here early
this morning. The passengers
speak highly of the treatment
accorded them by the railway
officials, who made the enforced
delay as little irksome as possible.

property, has just received an

valuable for metallurgical as well
as steaming and domestic purposes."

London, Dec. 23:���Andrew
Bonar Law, whose leadership of
the Unionist party from the outset has been of questionable success has given himself a coup de
grace.
Speaking of the Ashton-under-
Lyne on Monday, on the question
of the tariff, he declined to submit the question of food duties
to a British referendum as Lord
Lansdowne had suggested,on the
ground that it would tie the
hands of the colonies and said he
proposed to let the colonies decide which foodstuffs should be
taxed.
Apparently, Mr. Law no longer
possesses a single supporter of
any prominence in the ranks of
his own party unless F. E. Smith
he excepted, and even the' latter
has not been warm in his backing. Usually, after a party lead-
er has made a big speech in the
country, his next appearance in
the House of Commons is a signal of enthusiasm on the part of
his partisans. When Mr. Law
entered the House on Tuesday
his reception was so cold as to
suggest that its temperature was
not only frigid but calculated.
One of the leading papers has
since thrown Mr. Law overboard

No. 17.
The Omineca Miner hat Ihe largest bona fide circulation of any newipaper in the
Northern Interior of British Columbia.
Before the next issue of the Minor is printed, the year 1912
will have become a part of history. It has been a good and prosperous year fot Omineca district - a year in which many of the
pioneers have seen the fruition of their labors.
The agricultural industry throughout the district has grown to
notable proportions, the railway construction providing a ready and
profitable market for nil produce along the line, while the advance
of steel into the Bulkley Valley assures the farmers of that fine
district access to the important markets of the north Pacific coast
for any produce which the local market may not absorb in the
future. In the Kispiox and Francois and Ootsa lake districts the
year has been one of progress and increased settlement, ancl these
and other new sections of Omineca are rapidly coming into their
own.
In the mining industry the year has witnessed remarkable progress. While a number of promising properties have lain idle,
awaiting transportation facilities and consequent cheapness of
supplies, the owners of others have pushed development, with the
result that at least three mines have been brought to the producing
stage, while others have graduated from the prospect class and are
entitled to be called mines. New discoveries have not been lacking, and in various parts of the district important finds of mineral
have been made by the prospectors who spent the summer in the
hills. The coal mining industry in the district has more than held
its own, and much important work has been done, especially in
the Groundhog district and Copper River, where large deposits of
valuable coal have been proved. On the whole, the season's work
has gone far to prove Omineca's title to an important place in the
list of British Columbia's mineral districts.
Agriculturist and miner alike look forward to the year 1913
as the year in which the industries of Omineca will be placed on a
permanently profitable basis. Before the end of the year the
completed railway will traverse the district, affording much-needed
transportation facilities, and allowing the development, at reasonable cost, of the great resources of the premier district of Northern
British Columbia.
To Assist Farmers
One of the coming economic
developments on the North
American continent must be the
extension of agricultural credits.
The business fabric is too dependent upon the efficiency of farming, and upon the volume of
farm production, for national
indifference to the farmer's financial position to be long continued. In the United States,
governmental investigation into
the European co-operative credit
system has helped to focus public attention upon the problem
of helping the farmer to more
and cheaper capital. Bankers,
the leading railroad authorities,
and keen economists have begun
to insist upon early and definite
action. By some it has been
suggested that the banking laws
be amended to permit the small
local banks to lend upon farm
real estate under certain well-
defined restrictions to prevent
use of the money for speculation.
Ths formation of state agricultural credit banks, to issue
and sell bonds based upon the
collective securities of members
of approved local loan societies,
was proposed by Myron T. Her-
rick, American Ambassador at
Paris, after a thorough study of
European credit associations.
Writing in the National Banker,
Ralph van Vechten, vice-president of a National Bank in Chicago, advocates provisions in the
ban' ws to allow the forma

of these plans
desire   is  to'
arrive at a safe and adequate
way of assuring the farmer a
supply of working capital at low
rates, in order that his industry
the basis of national progress-
shall grow and flourish. As a
business, agriculture on this continent is inferior in point of real
economy' and efficiency to what
it is in Europe. ���Ex.
Groundhog Is Good
Gustav Oossman, a prominent
engineer who spent the summer
in this district, is much impressed
with its possibilities. He told
the Seattle P.-I. that during last
summer and fall he traversed the
whole of lhe Groundhog moun��
tain anthracite field and reported
on 195 square miles on behalf of
certain large Vancouver interests.
He states that he has found some
very high-grade anthracite, which
is of an excellent steaming quality, and which he compares
favorably with the Pennsylvania
product, although the field is not
so extensive as at first supposed
In his opinion this field is of the
utmost importance for Canada as
well as for the Pacific coast He
says that no extraordinary or unusual engineering features would
enter into the building of a railway to this field. He has visited
several mining properties in the
vicinity of Hazelton, and he is
greatly impressed with the mining resources of this part of the
country; also of the vast areas of
dry land with a black sandy loam
soil, which would form good,
tillable farms.

Hazelton, B. C.
Douglas, Ariz., Dec. 24:���The
town of San Marcial, fifty miles
south of Hermosillo, in Sonora,
has been completely wiped out
by Yaqui Indians, according to
despatches received here. The
population of the town was 1000.
Few are said to have escaped.
Later messages from Hermosillo, the capital of Sonora, said
that the fall of the town has
been semi-officially confirmed, and
that the first reports of the massacre were not exaggerated.
According to the earlier despatches, the Indians, five hundred strong, besieged the village
Wednesday night. The inhabitants resisted until yesterday
morning, when their ammunition
was exhausted: The Yaquis paid
no heed to white flags that were
displayed and rushed along the
streets butchering and pillaging.
The American quarter lay in
the hills just outide the town
proper, and hopes are high here
that all Americans escaped.
The attacking Indians are believed to be part of a regiment
organized and armed by the Federal government during one of
the recent revolutions. They
have looted several villages in
the last year, but never before
had attacked so large a town as
San Marcial.
San Marcial was the center of
the coal mining industry of Sonora. Much American capital is
invested in that district.

said today, probably would be involved eventually in the government recovery litigation which
was begun here last week with
'the filing of the $250,000,000 action in equity against the Southern Pacific Railroad and its subsidiary corporations. The Standard Oil Company, through its
subsidiaries, isexpected by federal
officers finally to be involved as
well as the Mackenzie and Mann
interests, and a British Columbia
oil syndicate, which is said to be
also interested extensively in
California. Three or more years
probably will elapse before it is
determined whether the Southern
Pacific and other interests wrongfully obtained the mineral lands
specified in the action.
The suit already involves the
largest amount ever sought in an
equity action in the history of
the United States and federal
officers say it would be ended
only when the Supreme' Court of
the United States renders a
decision.

The New Zinc Process
Nelson, B. C, Dec. 23:-De-
finite announcement that the
Canadian patents for a new process for the treatment of complex
zinc ores of Kootenay had been'
acquired by the Consolidated
Mining and Smelting Company of
Canada has been made by A.
Gordon French, the inventor.
Patents in France have also
been sold, he states. It is declared that the Consolidated company has under consideration
plans which will involve the outlay of five million dollars in connection with the new process
which has passed successfully
through a long series of searching
tests with Kootenay ores at the
Trail smelter.
The success of the French process is regarded by local mining
men as meaning the commencement of a new era in the industry of Kooteny, because it
will make possible the operation
of many properties with bodies
of low grade silver-lead-zinc
ores.
A Conciliation Board
Ottawa, Dec. 23:���The department of labor has established a
a board for the metal mines of
Kootenay district. Charles R.
Hamilton, K.C., of Nelson, has
been named as the representative
of the companies, and John A.
Bennett of Fernie has been named
by the men. Since twenty mines
are affected, and originally there
were five separate applications
for boards, Hon. T. W. Crothers
held that the disputes were all on
the same points, it would be
better to have one board to establish a general basis of settlement.

The Other Side
The promoters of New Hazelton propose to build a bridge
(j across the Bulkley at the upper
j j end of Haguel-get canyon. The
1 | non-arrival of the four car-loads
j |of timber which are to go into
the structure is seized upon by
the New Hazelton paper as excuse to "slate" the G. T. P.
In the interests of truth we
here give space to a statement
by A. E. McMaster, General
Agent of the G. T. P., who thus
gives the facts of the case:
"It is very apparent that the
Herald is under amisapprehension
respecting the facts of the case,
whether wilfully or otherwise I
do not know. The four cars of
of timber in question were billed
on us only to Prince Rupert and
we contracted to transport them
from here to South Hazelton only.
Not having authority from the
Railway Commission to operate
to New Hazelton it was utterly
impossible for us to do so, and
with the use of a little common
sense the Herald ought to appreciate this fact, especially in view
of the fact that in the same issue
f their paper they practically
admitted that the Railway will
I! operate beyond South Hazelton
' only when authority is granted.
Our agent at South Hazelton has
been after the consignees
continually since the arrival
of the oars at that point
to take delivery of same as we
were urgently requiring the cars
and the excuse given for not
taking delivery was that they
were not in possession of the
funds at South Hazelton and
would have to wire to Vancouver
for same, which further proves
the fact that no blame for delay
in delivery is attachable to this
company."

London,  Dec. 24:���The Allies
presented their demands to Turkey    as   follows:    First,   the
cession  by the Turks of all that
territory west of a line starting
from a point at East Rodosto, on
the Sea of Marmora, to a point
on the bay of Malatra, of the
i Black Sea, excluding the penin-
isulaof Gallipoli:   The Albanian
I status to be decided by the powers.    Second, cession of Aegean
Islands, now occupied by Greece
, and before that by Italy during
the last war.     Third, cession to
Greece of all Turkish rights in
the Island of Crete.
The conference adjourned until
Saturday to permit the Turks to
reply.
Refuses a Crown
Munich, Bavaria, Dec. 23:���
Prince Ludwig, the new Prince
Regent of Bavaria, sent an autograph letter to the Bavarian
Premier today vetoing the movement to place him on the throne
King.
He delcares: "I desire loyally
to administer the inheritance bequeathed me by my father.
Therefore, in view of the popular
movement in regard to the regency I desire that nothing
should be done for the present
in the matter."

Tilton's Crew Rescued
Lunenburg, N.S., Dec. 24:���
The schooner Wm. Sewicker
picked up the crew of the American schooner Harry Tilton from
Windsor to New York. The
wreck was sighted in a waterlogged condition, without sails
and at the mercy of wind and
waves. The seven members of
crew were lashed to the spanker
boom and had been there many
hours before their rescue.
Boston, Dec. 23:���With the six
members of the crew of the three-
masted schooner Henry B. Tilton
missing, the abandoned and
waterlogged vessel arrived off
Cape Cod today in tow of the
steam trawler Swell, which picked
picked up the derelict ninety-five
miles southeast of Highland
Light. The Tilton was bound from
Windsor, N. S., for New York
with lumber.
The Swell's crew of fifteen
men will share in one of the biggest Christmas presents, through
the salvage money, that ever has
been divided among fishermen
here. The fate of the crew of
Tilton is in doubt. They may
have been rescued by some
passing vessel.
Mexican Rebellion
Washington, Dec. 23:���Revolutionists appear to be growing
bolder as they see the ease of
evading pursuit and capture by
the Mexican government, according to a statement issued by the
state department.
Reports indicate the renewal
of rebel activity in the states of
Moralos, Puebla and Mexico,
while the situation in Zacatecas
and Durango is rapidly growing
from bad to worse. Great damage has been done the Norwest-
ern Railway out of Ciudad
Juarez.
We   are   prepared   for
weather at Sargent's store.
