BIO BATTLE
Victor Emanuel's Troops Defeat Arabs In Important
Engagement In Tripoli.
OVER A THOUSAND KILLED
Most Serious Battle of the War Between
Italy and Turkey���Defending Force*
Driven from Entrenched Position*
Near Fojat At Point of Bayonet
London, Mar. 15:���A despatch
from Benghazi, Tripoli, announces the receipt of advices, irom
Italian sources, of the most serious battle of the Turco-Italian
war. The encounter took place
near Fojat on Wednesday. Over
one thousand Arabs are reported
to have been slain and nearly a
thousand wounded, in the storming by Italian of two strongly
entrenched bases. The Arabs
occupying the trenches defended
their positions with great bravery
but were finally routed at the
point of the bayonet. The Italians
report their own loss to be under
one hundred killed and wounded.
Smith is Spouting
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, Mar. 15:���The campaign here is growing warmer
every hour, with Ralph Smith,
leader of the five Liberal candidates, the only one to offer anything for the "Solid Five" to
answer; his record as a member
of the house of commons being
contrasted with his extravagant
words. These reached spectacular
heights last night, when he said
"The McBride railway policy is
a gold brick. There are four
pieces; one for the Canadian
Northern, one for the Grand
Trunk Pacific, one for the Canadian Pacific, and one quarter
for election funds. How much
is there for you?" he asked the
audience. He concluded an hour's
attack with the statement that
the premier knew very little
about the railway policy. Shaugh-
nessy, Hays and Mann, he said,
had handed the bills to McBride
and said "The price of your election is the docile acceptance of
these hard and fast contracts."
Smith appears to have but little
chance and his running mates
none, as Conservatives are being
urged not to split the ticket.
They have not done so in the last
two elections. Victoria Conservatives are confident of victory,
Brewster appears to have a very
small chance of election.
Hon. Richard McBride and
the attorney-general are shortening their tour to return here
on Wednesday for a meeting
in Delta, where John Oliver is
opposing F. J. Mackenzie. A big
meeting will be held here on
Thursday evening.
Aurora Returns
Hobart, Tasmania, Mar. 15:���
The ship Aurora, which carried
the Australian south pole expedition to the Antarctic regions, has
returned to this port. She landed
two parties at separate points in
the south, Dr. Mawson, leader of
the expedition, being in command
of one which left the ship on
January 19. Dr. Wilde, a veteran
of former expeditions under Sir
Ernest Shackelton and Captain
Scott, headed the second party,
which was landed on February
19. Australians and New Zea-
landers made up a majority of
the party of twenty-five explorers. The equipment of the expedition includes an airship.
Valuable results are expected
from the work of the two parties
remaining In the Antarctic,

WILLIAM MANSON
The Regular
Conservative Candidate
for Skeena District.
Amundsen Was First
To Reach South Pole
London, March 14:��� Captain
Amundsen is accorded by the
world's recognized authorities the
honor of having discovered the
south pole. The thrilling account
of his discoveries received by the
King of Norway and the various
press associations is unchallenged
and meets universal acceptance.
Amundsen says Capt. Scott may
also have reached the pole.
Failure to hear from the British
explorer causes much disappointment in England, where it was
hoped he would have been well
up in the race to the pole.
BRITISH COAL STRIKE
GROWS IN SERIOUSNESS
Hopes That Effort To End
Trouble By Arbitration
Will Succeed.
London, Mar. 14:���The efforts
of the Asquith administration to
secure an amicable adjustment of
the great coal strike are being
continued, with greater prospects
of success. It is now regarded
as probable that a settlement will
be arrived at within two weeks.
The trouble is rapidly growing
in seriousness. Nearly two millions of miners and employees of
other industries are now out of
work, and thousands are added
to the roll of unemployed every
day. The railways, it is estimated, have lost over twelve
million dollars in profits since the
trouble began.
Charity alone is keeping thousands from starvation in South
Wales. The suffering of the
families of unemployed workmen
is also acute in many parts of
England and Scotland.
A Rush of Wheat
Winnipeg, March 12:��� The
Canadian Northern Railway Company has let a contract for the
increase to their big elevator at
Port Arthur, Ont, to 24,000,000
bushels, keeping it in the front
as the largest grain elevator in
the world. This will also relieve
the congestion at all Canadian
ports, as every bit of space in
the elevators and the vessels in
the harbors is filled at Canadian
Lake ports. Drying plants have
already all the business they can
handle until May.
Larry Maney Dead
Another well-known resident
of Omineca district has gone to
the Great Beyond. On Thursday
morning Larry Maney died at
the hospital, of pneumonia. He
had returned a few days before
from Burns Lake, where he
worked on the government bridge
and was under the physician's
care only two or three days. He
was 43 years of age, and had
been a resident of the Valley for
over five years.
May Be Drowned
Anxiety is felt for the safety
of Louis Johnson, a Kispiox man
who had been working at camp
24. He left camp on Thursday of
last week and has not been seen
so far as known, since ten o'clock
on the same evening, when he
said he was going back to the
camp.. It is feared he broke
through the ice while crossing
the Bulkley. The police will be
glad to receive any information.

Campaign Is On In Earnest
Throughout British Columbia
Nelson, Mar. 15: Hon. Richard
McBride, who is here today with
Hon. W. J. Bowser and a party
of prominent Conservatives, expresses pleasure with the election
by acclamation of so many supporters. The premier predicts a
clean sweep for the Conservative
party. At Kaslo and Cranbrook,
where the ministers spoke, the
Conservative candidates were
elected by acclamation. The tour,
beginning at Kamloops and continuing through Revelstoke and
Golden, has been a triumphant
succession of large and enthusi
astic meetings.
Great surprise is felt here at
the attitude of Harry Wright,
the former member, in running
as an independent candidate,
following his failure to secure
the endorsement of the convention. McLean, the regular nominee, is regarded as an easy
winner.
Twice in the course of the tour

Enthusiasm Marked Action
of Delegates In Nominating
William Manson.
ONE LONE DISSENTIENT
Every Part of Skeena District Represented In Assembly Which Approved
Record of Member���Candidate Addresses Delegates ��� Smoker Follows.
In last week's issue we were
unable to give an extended report of the nominating convention at Prince Rupert, which concluded as The Miner was going
to press. There were present
delegates from every part of the
constituency, Omineca district
being represented by J. M. MacCormick and Walter Noel, of
Hazelton; George Findlay of
Aldermere and C. H. Sleigh, of
Telkwa. From the opening of
the proceedings it was evident
that William Manson was the
choice of the delegates, and when
the nominations were called for
his name was the only one put
forward. Amid loud applause
Mr. Manson was declared the
Conservative candidate, the voice
of Dr. Clayton, who could find no
one to nominate him, being the
only one heard in opposition to
the popular choice.
Amid hearty cheers Mr. Man-
son responded to calls for a
speech. He said it was gratifying to him to be accorded such a
unanimous nomination. In spite
of any criticisms to which he had
been exposed at times it was
shown by the convention that he
had the hearty endorsation of
the party.
It was no small undertaking to
represent a constituency of the
character of the Skeena. Under
the system of government prevailing in British dominions a
man elected was called upon to
support a party. He had been
able to see his way clear to support the government. There
were times when he could wish
the government to do somewhat
different with respect to his constituency. He looked to the interests of the constituency, how-
ever, and his aim had been
to secure results for the district
rather than to make any grand
Stand play.
From time to time he had found
opportunities to meet the mem-
bers of the government and go j
fully into matters affecting the
district. He had been able to
secure in a friendly way what he
sought in most of cases. Some
might show more grand stand
play and make a show of opposition to the government. He was
satisfied, however, to get the
results for his constituents without this.
He  was not always  on   the j
house-tops    shouting,    as  they t
knew, but they would find him
ready and watching at all times
when the interests of the district
were at stake.
In outlying parts they had the
responsibility of carrying out the
building   of   roads,   trails  and;
bridges.    It was a responsibility
that  carried  with it always a'
certain amount of criticism.
He made reference to the
appropriations. With such a
large sum of money to expend it
was required that the utmost:
care be exercised. He had sometimes felt that the money was
not expended to the best advan-;
tage always. His aim was' to
get the very best of results. It
had been decided to make a
change in the system. A district
engineer was to be appointed
with headquarters in Prince Rupert, who would confer with the
road superintendents in carrying
out their work. Under these
circumstances there would, he
felt sure, be a large saving. This
would be evident to all. A trail
laid out by a road foreman was
not sure to be always in the
proper place to be to the advantage of the future work. With
an engineer in charge that objection could be overcome.
Concluding, Mr. Manson said
he would, if elected, serve the
people in such a way as to fully
warrant their trust in him.
Having concluded the business
of the convention in the afternoon, the Prince Rupert Conservatives arranged a smoker for
the evening, and the affair proved
to be highly enjoyable. There
were many speeches in favor of
the return of the McBride administration and the re-election of
Mr. Manson, and these were
greeted with enthusiasm. In a
spirited address Mr. Manson
promised that he would continue
the good work he had been following during the past year in
obtaining appropriations. Skeena
District had received in 1905,
$7,000; 190G, $10,000; 1907, $20,-
000; 1908, $28,000; 1909, $75,000.
In the next year he (Mr. Man-
son) had become the representative and the district got $150, -
000 in 1910; $225,000 in 1911; and
in 1912, $550,000.
It was true he was not yet satisfied with the appropriations. He
had asked for an appropriation of
$682,000 for roads, trails and
bridges. A cut had to be made
all around and so he had his cut
to $351,000, it being, however,
the largest for any district in the
province.
Walter Noel, one of the Hazelton delegates, spoke for this
part of the district, assuring the
delegates that Hazelton was alive
to the best interests of the province, and would do its part to
strengthen the hands of the government by giving Mr. Manson a
handsome majority.
Refuse Miners' Demands
New York, March 11:���Anthracite coal operators, in session here
decided to reject the demands of
the miners for increased pay. A
committee was appointed to
notify the labor officials.
One hundred and eighteen
thousand miners in the anthracite fields will be affected by the
operators' decision. It was reported that there had been no
change in the miners' demands,
chief of which are a 20 per cent,
increase in wages, recognition of
the union, reduction of the working day from nine to eight hours,
collection of union dues by the
operators, and the making of an
agreement to be binding for one
year instead of three, as heretofore.

Rev. R. Tomlinson has been
awarded $4,500 in the Meanskinisht mission lands right-of-way
case with the G. T. P. This is
practically what he was offered
by the railway company before
the action was raised, and he has
now to bear the burden of the
costs which is very considerable.
The arbitrators' fees alone
work out to about $1,260 at the
rate of $25 per day for each arbitrator for each day in session.
Besides this there are the costs
for bringing witnesses from all
parts of the country. This runs
to fully another $1,000 or $1,200.
And then there are the fees of
counsel to be paid. These, it may
safely be assumed, will not scale
much below the expenses of witnesses, and may perhaps be considerably more. ���News.

Britains' Coal Output
The importance of the coal
mining industry in Great Britain
is obvious from the figures of the
production of 1909, when 263,-
274,312 tons of coal were produced, the total value at the pit
mouth being $531,374,000. The
total number of persons employed
in and about the mines in the
same year was 10,042,435,
and of these a total of 818,381
worked underground. On the
surface a considerable number of
women are employed sorting the
coal, these numbering nearly 6,-
000 in 1909. The principal districts affected by the strike are
the Durham, which produces
about 40,000,000 tons a year;
Yorkshire, 36,000,000; Lancashire, 23,000,000; Staffordshire,
19,500,000; Derbyshire, 16,900,-
000; Northumberland, 14,000,000;
Monmouthshire, 13,000,000, and
Nottinghamshire, 11,000,000.
Europe relies to a large extent
on British coal, France taking a
yearly average of 30,000,000 tons,
Italy and Germany 9,000,000 tons
each, Sweden nearly 5,000,000,
Russia nearly 4,000,000, Denmark
3,000,000, Spain 5,000,000, Holland and Norway also taking
about 2,000,000 tons each and the
other countries smaller amounts.

SWEENEY-ADVENTURER
Bill Sweeney had led a checkered
j career, but his record was of the beat;
j when a helping hand was required by
man 'twas Sweeney who stood the test.
Sweeny was one of the Telegraph
crew, a lineman at the Fourth; his hair
he tore, by his beard he swore no longer he'd stay in the North.
Sweeney had learned the telegraph
code; the language of Morse he knew:
but the frosty nights and the northern
lights had made him very blue. The
lonely life on the Telegraph trail was
not of the best, he'd decide. And coming in late, from a "mush delate" he'd
ruminate with pride���
"I'm Sweeney, descendant of Scotland's king who reigned in the year of
Three; my blood is blue the whole way
through���who has not heard of me? I
I came to the north from the Firth of
Forth; the past is at my back. I've
worked on trails; I've carried mails and
none can say I've slacked. I've run
canoes with Siwash crews through
canyons, bars and shoals; I've dug all
night, by a "bug's" dim light, on alone
still-hunt for gold. Once was I a scout
for a bunch, and out on the trail for
many a day. A battle we fought, and
the enemy taught our laws they
must obey���Oh, this northern life is
full of strife; but the thing that makes
me quail, when thoughts are rife, is
this lonely life on the Yukon Telegraph
Trail."
Sweeney could stand the strain no
more; each thought was voiced aloud.
"When a lone man starts talking it's
time to be walking; I don't want to go
'out' in a shroud." So the very next
day he would start away for the South,
and the lights of town and he threw a
curse at the universe and the mountain's rugged frown. Hp hit the trail,
with a ragged sail wrapped 'round his
toboggan's load. He tracked his whip
at the lead dog, Zip, and was off on the
lonely road. He would camp at night
by the north star's light; start on at
the break of day, till he came at last
to the place where he'd pass the rest
of the winter away. In the lighted
town, with luxury 'round; its sports
and its weekly mail, you'll hear
Sweeney sing, with a voice that rings,
of life on the Telegraph Trail. ,

Famous Camp In Omineca
River District Will Yield
Great Wealth  In Future.
OLD CHANNELS ARE RICH
The Gold Recovered By Early Miners
and Its Source���Operators Find An
Alluring Field In the Creeks Where
Pioneers Took Out Many Thousands.
We print below an interesting
article on the placer gold deposits
of the Omineca river district,
from the pen of Francis T.
Child, who has had an experience
in the district of eight years.
The first creek to be struck of
any importance in the Omineca
District was Vital: the next Tom
Creek: then came Germansen
and Manson Creeks, which
caused a general stampede from
Cariboo and the Coast. The
camp underwent the usual experience of a new camp, becoming
famous in a day, living a short
life and a merry one, and then
subsided in favor of the next discovery, which was Cassiar. The
next camp north of Cassiar is
Atlin, and again north of Atlin is
Klondyke. It is a remarkable
fact that by drawing a straight
line from the Klondyke to the
Cariboo it passes through the intermediate camps mentioned,
showing conclusively the trend
of the gold belt.
The days for individual mining
for this camp have passed and
gone, but it most certainly possesses great inducements for
capital to work on a large scale.
Owing to the want of transportation facilities, the mining interests of Manson have had to lie
dormant, but the time is very
near now when this barrier will
be removed. The construction of
the Grand Trunk Pacific is well
under way, and passes through
the Omineca Mining District.
This fact is drawing the attention
of the investing public to the
great mining resources of this
country. As soon as transportation is put on a good basis it
will be the means of causing
another stampede to the Manson
gold fields, not the individual
miner this time���he was the
pioneer���but the mining investor.
There are buried channels in
the  Manson district containing

THE
Remington
Typewriter �� **
Perpetual   Pioneer
The No. 10 and No. 11
Visible Remington Models
are the latest expressions of
Remington leadership. They
represent the 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.

millions of dollars waiting to be
taken out and brought into use.
The old channels are the sources
of the gold that has been mined
hitherto, which has been found
in the present creeks where they
either cross-cut or follow the
course of these old channels for
some distance. Lost creek is a
good example of this. Here we
can see the exact spot where the
creek strikes the old channel,
coming out of the hill and following the course for about 1200 feet,
where the old channel again
enters the hill. This 1200 feet
was mined out in the early days
and proved very rich ground,
$125,000 being taken out of the
Discovery claim. One of the
owners told me this��� Very conclusive evidence of the high
values these old channels are
carrying. Another example is
Slate creek, which was never
bothered by the early miners on
account of its depth, their work
on this creek being confined exclusively to the shallow bars and
rivers. The Kildare Mining
Company, of Ottawa, owns this
ground, and by the aid of a small
elevator have opened up a pit to
bed-rock which is 33 feet in
depth. Gold commenced to come
in about 12 feet from the surface
and gradually increased in value
as depth was attained. Rich pay
gravel was struck four feet from
the bottom. When bed-rock was
reached, gold could be seen
everywhere and $12,000 were
taken out of this pit, only a portion of the bed-rock being
cleaned. The width of this pay
streak has not yet been demonstrated, but a good idea of its
values might be had from by the
fact that after the bed-rock was
cleaned up, two men were
selected to pan all day across the
face of the pay gravel as far as
the pit would allow. They were
to pan every foot of the pay
streak that was in sight, so that
the Company could form a fairly
close estimate of the average
value per pan. The work was
confined to four feet from the
bed-rock. The values obtained
at the close of the day showed
average of $1.30 to the pan. One
of the men was then requested
to pick a pan anywhere he
pleased. The picked pan went
$41.
There are other old channels
that I could speak of that are
equally interesting, but these
two instances will show I might
say with all confidence, that the
source of the wealth of Manson
gold fields is practically unexplored and awaiting development.
Little is known of the possibilities of Manson creek itself outside of about three miles down
stream from Manson Town,
which has been, owing to its
shallow depth, very thoroughly
worked. This ground paid very
well indeed, some parts of it paving $100. per day to the man; but
at the end of the three miles
spoken of, the ground increased
in depth and individual mining
was abandoned.
As the benches below the three
miles worked show as good prospects as the benches above, there
is every reason for believing that
the same high values continue
down the creeks as were found in
the portion worked, and in addition to these values, it has the
benefit of being further enriched
by all the gold that has come
down from the sources mentioned, Lost creek, and Slate
creek, both of which enter Man-
son creek below the old works.
This was the conviction of the
Manson Gold Mining and Dredging Co., who have secured two
miles of the unworked portion of
Manson creek, commencing at
the termination of the old works
and extending down stream. The
values of the bed-rock of this
property have yet to be demonstrated by a working test, but I
have not the slightest doubt that
they will be found to be quite
equal to those already demonstrated.
I know this country contains
great mining possibilities requir-1
ing only the necessary transpor-
tation facilities to develop it intoi
a first class camp.
