HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1911
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
A BIG PUNT
FOR KITSELAS
Gold Creek Placer Ground
to be Exploited by Means
of Hydraulic Outfit.
BIG CENTRIFUGAL PUMP
Plant Used in Levelling Hills in Seattle
on Iti Way to the Lower Skeena
Camp���Kitselai Miners Looking for
Great Activity.
A special to the Miner from
Seattle gives George W. Otterson,
the prominent hydraulic expert,
as authority for the statement
that a complete hydraulic plant
is being shipped from the Sound
City on the steamer Prince Rupert, for use on placer ground on
Gold creek, one and a half miles
from Kitselas. The plant consists of a 14-inch 4-step centrifugal pump, weighing sixteen tons,
to be operated by a 40-inch turbine water wheel of 400 horsepower capacity, This plant will
deliver water sufficient to operate
two 4-inch nozzles at a pressure
of 240 pounds to the square inch.
This plant, the first of its kind
to be installed in British Columbia, was formerly used on regrade
work on the streets of Seattle.
Having completed the work of
tearing down the hills in that
city, it will serve to exploit the
gold-bearing gravels of the Kitselas district.
The Provincial government has
constructed a wagon road from
Kitselas up Gold creek, allowing
the transportation of machinery
and supplies to the mines, and
considerable activity is looked for
as soon as work is possible. In
prospecting the claims, of which
there are several groups, the
miners claim they have seldom
failed to obtain coarse gold, and
hydraulic operations-are expected to yield handsome returns.
AT THE NEW TOWNSITE
Business Men Pleased with South Hazel.
ton   -Hudson's Bay   Co.
Buys Lots
Yesterday afternoon a number
of business men went over to
South Hazelton, where,' under
the guidance of A. C. Aldous,
of Aldous & Murray, they looked
over the blocks reserved for the
selection of the people of the
old town. Among those who
crossed the Bulkley were J. C.
Boyd, of the Hudson's Bay company; J. M. MacCormick, of R.
Cunningham & Son; Walter Noel,
of Noel & Rock; Arthur Skelhorne, of the B. C. Brokerage
company and Rev. Mr. Field.
Acting on advices from the Victoria office of the company, Mr.
Boyd secured four lots for the
H. B. Co.
The members of the party expressed themselves, on their return, as being very well satisfied
with the location of the townsite,
its situation being very favorable,
while the clearing which is being
done adds considerably to the
attractive appearance of the
land. The townsite is well laid
out, the streets, in the main, running at right angles. The av
enues are numbered, while the
streets and drives bear names
well known in this district.
The townsite plans show Broad
way, which is expected to be one
of the principal streets, running
south from the station site. It
is 100 feet wide, while Omineca
street, another promising thoroughfare for business purposes,
runs east and west, and is 80
fee$ wide.
Adjourned for Holidays
Ottawa: Parliament adjourned
on Thursday, to reassemble January 10. Premier Borden, with
Ambassador Bryce, have gone to
New York. Both will address
the Canadian Club in that city.
Royalty's Entrance
Into City of Delhi
Delhi, Dec. 7:~- King George
and Queen Mary arrived today
from Bombay and made their
formal entry into the ancient
capital of India. The scene was
one of indescribable magnificence.
Half a million people greeted the
King-Emperor and his consort.
Delhi is crowded, 250,000 people,
including the suites and followers
of all the principal chiefs and
princes of India, living in camps
about tne city. On Sunday His
Majesty will present colors to
three British and two native
regiments. The great ceremony
of the durbar, the coronation and
receiving of homage, will take
place on December 12, when a
royal proclamation will be read
in every town and village in the
Empire, royal salutes will be
fired from every gun in India and
the whole country will be ablaze
with illuminations at night. The
thirteenth will be devoted to a
people's fete all over the land.
All of the ruling princes and
great chiefs of India will be commanded to the durbar. Envoys
from Nepal and Afghanistan and
the Maharajah of Bhutan will
also be present.
ANOTHER ROAD TO PEACE
Route of Projected Railway from Vancouver to Point Near Hudson's Hope
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, Dec. 8: -Abbott &
McHarg, acting for unnamed
principals, have given notice that
application will be made at Ottawa for a charter to incorporate
the Vancouver & Peace River
Railway company, with the usual
general powers. The route
named is from Vancouver to Fort
George, on to the Parsnip river,
northeast through Pine river
pass, southeast to Grand Prairie,
passing near Bear lake and north
to a point near Fort Vermilion,
with a branch line running north
along the middle fork of Pine
river to a point on the Peace
river near Hudson's Hope.
PAID THE PENALTY
On Tuesday Two Murderers Meet Death
on the Gallows
(Special to The Miner)
New Westminster, Dec. 5:-
Two executions took place here
today. Ishi, the Japanese convicted of the murder of a compatriot at a Skeena river cannery,
went to the gallows without any
display of emotion, and made no
statement. He was attended by
a Buddhist priest. Henry Jobes,
sentenced for the murder of his
wife here, was also hanged.
FOR CONFESSED DYNAMITERS
James B. McNamara Condemned to Imprisonment for Life���John J. McNamara Sentenced for Fifteen Years for Complicity in
Dynamiting in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles, Dec. 8:- -On Tuesday James B. McNamara was
sentenced to imprisonment for.
life and his brother John J. Mc
Namara was given fifteen years
in the penitentiary for complicity
in the dynamite outrages by
which the Times building and
Llewellyn Iron Works were destroyed. Today the State turned
over to the Federal government all evidence in the case, for
use in the investigation into the
dynamiting which has occurred
in the last five years which has
been ordered by the Washington
authorities. Many cases have
been reported, the range of the
outrages extending from coast to
coast. In the present case, the
grand jury had already heard
the revelations of McManigal,
who testified that James McNamara openly boasted that he had
the American Federation of
Labor back of him, and that he
and his associates had received
$20,000 in five years, for twenty
dynamiting jobs. Detective
Burns declared that Gompers
knew McNamara's guilt for
months before the trial.
Intoxicated Indians Threaten
Lives of White Residents On Naas
The Naas river Indians, living
at Aiyanish, described by those
who know them best as "a bad
bunch," became intoxicated on
Sunday last, and the few white
men in the vicinity had quite a
strenuous time for awhile, judging from advices received here.
It appears that the si washes, after
brewing sufficient' 'olallie-chuck''
to give them the necessary courage, issued an ultimatum to the
white men, ordering them out of
the country on pain of death. A
shot was fired at one white man,
and L. A. Graef, operator at Aiyanish, and Rev. Mr. McCullough,
the missionary, were threatened
by the armed and arrogant Indians. As a defiance to the
Whites, the insurgents tore down
the telegraph wires north of the
Aiyanish village. On Tuesday
the operator, despite the threats
of the Indians, went over the
line and made the necessary repairs.
As soon as the natives became
uncontrollable, Mr.  McCullough
'telegraphed to Chief Constable
j Owen, at Prince Rupert, and that
official left on Monday for the
I scene of the trouble, taking four
i constables.     The    missionary's
j message occasioned considerable
anxiety.   He has been among the
! Naas  Indians for many years,
I and has never before had to call
1 for assistance.   The fact that the
natives got beyond his control
indicates that the disorder was of
unusual seriousness.
Big Railway Loan
London: A $3 5,000,000 loan
on behalf of the Northern Ontario railway has opened with
bright prospects of success. The
B. C. Fisheries Co., with capital
of $1,250,000, has heen foimed.
Railway Legislation
at Coming Session
(Speclnl  to The Miner)
Victoria, Dec. 9; -The opening
of the British Columbia legislature has been fixed for January
11. Among other railway matters to be considered is the application of the British Columbia
Alaska Railway for extension of
time for the commencement of
construction and for permission
to amend its route, which is now
announced as follows: from Fort
George northeasterly by way of
Fort McLeod to the valley of the
Parsnip river, which is to be followed to its junction with the
Peace river, from which the line
will be built through the valley
of the Findlay river, through
Sifton pass, and thence clown the
Stikine to a junction with the
main line at Telegraph creek.
The company also seeks power to
construct branch lines.
In a speech at Vancouver,
Premier McBride slated the intention of his Government next
session to outline a policy of aggressive railway building
throughout the province to develop the natural resources in
preparation for the opening of
the Panama canal.

Telkwa Is Busy
Frank L. Charleson, the Telkwa
merchant, was in town early in
the week. He reported a possible
shortage of supplies in the valley
if the sleighing season is much
longer delayed. In the Hazelton
warehouses there are large stocks
awaiting shipment to the valley
towns. Mr. Charleson says the
builders in the valley are still
busy, and are using all the lumber they can obtain. In Telkwa
business has been very good, the
town growing rapidly.
(Speolal  to The Miner)
Vancouver, Dec. 8:-TheGrand
Trunk Pacific has instructed
Foley, Welch & Stewart to rush
work on the uncompleted gap between Aldermere and Tete Jaune
Cache. J. W. Stewart has gone
to Paris. Mr. Welch is on his
way to Edmonton and Winnipeg,
on business connected with the
award of the sub-contracts for
the eastern part of this work.
It is believed sub-contracts for
the western portion of the gap
will be awarded to various contractors now engaged in construction on the Hazelton section.
Foley, Welch & Stewart, who
have the contract for the whole
uncompleted part of the railway,
announce that they have crews
in the field clearing right-of-way
from both ends of the gap. Two
steamers are now being huilt at
Tete Jaune Cache, for distributing material, and will be completed in the spring.
MINING NOTES
What is Doing on Some of the Working
Properties
Groundhog Man Returns
Frank A. Jackson, whose name
has been associated with the
Groundhog coalfield since thej
wonderful coal measures of that
part of the district first attracted
attention, returned on Thursday
from a trip to Vancouver, whither
he went to make arrangements
for next season's development
work on the large areas of coal
lands controlled by himself and
his associates. He expects to
leave in a day or two for a flying
visit to Groundhog, and states
that arrangements for a big season's work are well under way.
On Rocher de Boule group.
Superintendent Frank Brown reports, satisfactory progress is
being made in the crosscut tunnel to the lower vein. Mr.
Brown was in Hazelton during
the week, procuring supplies and
engaging additional miners, The
sleigh-road from Skeena crossing
to the property is nearly completed, and will soon be in readiness
for the transportation of the
compressor plant.
Remarkably good progress is
being made in the crosscut tunnel
which is to develop the ore shoot
in No. 2 vein on the American
Boy group. The management of
Harris Mines, Ltd.. which is
operating the mine, announces
that the tunnel is in 65 feet and
is timbered throughout. The
ground is proving very favorable
for tunneling, and an average
daily gain of 4 1-2 feet is made.
It is now probable that the 235
feet of estimated distance to the
ore will be made about February
1. The rails for the tunnel have
been taken up to the mine, and
the car will be ready next week.
GOVERNMENT INSURANCE
Great   Britain   Provides   Measures   Ensuring Relief for Workmen
in Case of Illness
London,  Dec.  6:   The much-
discussed national insurance bill,
introduced in the House of Commons by the government, passed
its third reading today by a vote
of over three hundred as against
twenty-one   negatives.     There
was no active opposition to the
final  passage  of  the measure,
only  a   few   Unionists   voting.
Under the act the workmen will
j contribute 8c a week out of their
! wages, receiving in return $2.50
a week during illness, as well as
; free medical treatment.   In the
i event of complete disability, the
workmen   will   receive  $1.25   a
week for life.
Ottawa, Dec. 7:-The annual
report of the post-office department, presented today by the
Postmaster - general, shows a
large increase in revenue for the
year. The number of letters
carried also shows a considerable
increase, the number delivered
during the fiscal year being in excess of 500,000.000. The statement of revenue issued by the
money order branch shows that
the Japanese in Canada sent home
post-office money orders to the
value of a million dollars. Aus-
trians sent home twice that
amount.
The question of the dismissal
of public servants for partisanship was debated in the House,
on a motion for all papers bearing on the subject, introduced by
McLean, the Liberal member for
Halifax, who claimed to have
discovered cases of unjust dismissal in Nova Scotia. The
charge was denied on behalf of
the government. Hon, Mr.
Borden said the whole matter
would be settled for both the inside and outside services by act
and resolution giving civil servants the right to vote, but
i prohibiting their engagement in
| partisan work either in Federal
I or Provincial politics.
During the holiday recess the
ministers will prepare for the
submission of the estimates,
which will be presented immediately on re-opening.
Board of Trade Public Meeting
A general meeting of the business and professional men of the
town is called for Monday evening, Dec. 11th, in the school house
for the purpose of organizing a
board of trade. The meeting will
lie called at 7:30 o'clock sharp.
All who are interested in the welfare of the district are invited to

THE CANADIAN NORTHERN
Plans   Filed   at Ottawa Show Proposed
Route Through Northern
British Columbia
(8| lal I.. 'I'll.. Miner)
Vancouver, Dec. 7: The first
route plana for the Canadian
Northern line into the Peace
river country and across northern British Columbia have been
fried at Ottawa. General Manager McLeod, of the C. N. R.,
who is al present in Vancouver,
states that the proposed line is
likely to be built under the charter of a subsidiary company controlled by Mackenzie & Mann.
The precise route now indicated
may not be followed, as many
portions of the route between the
Rockies ancl the coast have not
.yet been explored. Preliminary
surveys will be made as soon  as
j possible,   and   the   actual  route
will he determined when the  re-
, ports of the engineers are received.
Stewart, on Portland canal, is
spoken of as the probable terminus of the road.
The company is also building a
line from Edmonton to Fort Mc-
Murray. By the end of this year
the company hopes to have the
rails laid as far as Athabasca
Landing, the head of navigation.
Mr. McLeod agreed with the
statement of Sir William Mackenzie that the main line to Vancouver would be completed about
' the end of 1913. THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1911.

Om in eca 's Possibilities
At this point of time, with the steel trail which is to connect
us with the outside world rapidly approaching Hazelton from the
coast, it is not amiss to look ahead and see, as well as may be,
what the future holds in store for Omineca district. Many wonderful possibilities are in sight, more and greater, in fact, than the
people who are in the midst of them can realize.
It will be remembered that when the construction of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway through this district was first mooted, all
that was known of the northern interior was that it presented agricultural possibilities, and the pioneers of the country wore of the
hardy class which enters the wilderness and subdues it. In the
course of a few years, coming into the interior over dim trails
which gradually developed into roads, the land-hungry adventurers
spread through the valleys and plateaus of the district, turned their
horses out to feed on the luxuriant grasses, and dotted the land
with their cabins. With axe and plough they waged their battle
against the wilderness, and a splendid victory has been theirs, as
the well-tilled and productive farms of the Bulkley valley, Kispiox,
Francois and Ootsa bear witness. Beginning with such appliances
as could be packed on horseback or manufactured with simple tools,
they have equipped their farms with modern machinery, have built
comfortable houses and commodious farm buildings, ancl are now
preparing to supply the agricultural products for which the mining
camps of the interior, the cities of the coast, and the northern gold-
fields afford a convenient ancl profitable market. With but a tithe
of their land under the plow, the farmers of the Bulkley valley
have in the last season realized sufficient prices for their produce to
reimburse them for every cent they have expended upon their land.
With a railroad to afford them transportation within a year, it
appears safe to predict a prosperous future for the agriculturists of
the country.
Turning to the other great industry of British Columbia in
which Omineca district will soon take a foremost place, one disposed
to study the mining industry of the northern interior will reflect
with surprise on the remarkable development of the camps which
are beginning to attract the attention of the mining world. From
the time of the discovery and partial exploitation of the rich alluvial
gold camps of the Omineca river and its tributaries, this district
has always been looked upon as a prospective mineral country,
although no active efforts were made to develop it until attention
was attracted by the success attending the settlement of the
Bulkley valley. Copper had been discovered ancl located on Hudson Bay mountain, some ten years before the settlers arrived, and
when prospectors, for once second in the field, appeared on the
scene, the mineral area was soon proven to extend to the Telkwa
country. Followed the discovery of galena in the Babines, in the
rocks of Nine-mile mountain, at Hazelton's very door, and again on
Rocher de Boule, just across the Bulkley. So rich ancl promising
were the showings uncovered that the claims within easy reach
were rapidly developed to a point which leaves no doubt as to their
value, while the prospectors, going further afield, continue to bring
in ore and stories of discoveries from nearly every part of the
district. With drill and pick the veins are now being developed in
preparation for the time, soon to come, when the ore will be sent
to smelters and its precious contents added to the wealth of the
nation. Those who come to Hazelton with the railway, if in
search of mines, will find showings which promise to make
Omineca one of the great silver-lead producing districts of the
world.
In coal also, we have something to show the world. Within
the few years that have elapsed since the first discovery of coal
was made here, there have been brought to light vast measures of
coal, much of which is equal to that of Pennsylvania and of Wales.
Tributary to the coming cities of this district, there are the prospective fields of the Copper, Morice, Bulkley and Omineca rivers
and the wonderful Groundhog measures, of the extent of which
experts of the highest standing refuse to speak, on the ground that
the ascertained facts would not be believed. The quality of the
Groundhog coal has been indisputably proved by many analyses,
while the quantity available is.so vast that an adequate idea of it
can hardly be conveyed. It is sufficient to say that seven hundred
square miles of coal lands have been located, ancl that one of the
engineers estimates that five railways will be required to transport
the product to the coast.
Volumes could be written on the many industries which will
contribute to the prosperity of Omineca district; but only the man
who comes to see for himself can appreciate the potentialities of
the northern interior, which offers rich rewards for pluck, energy
and ability. Those who possess the requisite qualities, and those
seeking a field for investment, will make no mistake in coming to
"The Land of Opportunity."
The annual report of the Department of Indian Affairs, just
published, includes a good deal of
interesting information concerning the aboriginal peoples of
Canada. The officials of the department maintain that, contrary
to the generally-accepted belief,
the Indian tribes which have
adopted civilized methods of life
are increasing in numbers, citing
as an instance the Six Nations
Indians, who have gained 25 per
cent, in numbers in twenty years.
The total number of Indians in
the county is 103,661, not including the Eskimo population of
4,600. British Columbia has a
larger Indian population than any
other province. The number in
this province is 24,581, while Ontario has 22,496, Quebec 11.462,
Saskatchewan 9,439, Alberta
8,088 and Manitoba 6,104. The
Northwest Territories have an
Indian population of 12,625, the
Yukon 3,580 and the Maritime!
Provinces 4,120. The report
states that the excess of births j
over deaths for that part of the
country covered by the returns;
is 346.
The Ontario Indians lead those
of other provinces in the value of
farm crops. They raised over
half a million bushels of grain,
and their total farm yield was
valued at $435,000, the British
Columbia Indians following with
$350,000. As the land under
crop in this province was only
half that in Ontario, the farming
must have been more successful.
The Indians have become a
somewhat more important factor
in the industrial life of the
country. It is found that they
earned $1,540,021 in wages last
year. Of this the Ontario Indians received $605,058, and those
of British Columbia $477,655.
The wages paid was an increase
of $195,422 over 1910. Besides
tho amounts received in wages
from fishermen, the Indians of
Canada earned $691,629 by fishing on their own account. Of
this $424,515 was gained in tlii^
province'. The proceeds of the
hunt were $819,424, whereof
$169,600 was obtained in British
Columbia.
PROSPECTOR ���- BOTANIST
specimens, however, have informed him that his collection
includes varieties unknown to
science, to the possible number
of forty or fifty.

Pursuing   His  Hobby,   Gervais   Gathers
Remarkable Collection of
Botanical Specimens
A wave of excitement appears to be spreading over Mohammedan countries, as a result of Italy's seizure of Tripoli, and
despatches from some quarters presage the proclamation of a holy
war. It is perhaps significant that the proclamation recently
issued to the Islamic world should come from Berlin. Germany
has always been friendly to the Turk, and prominent German
papers are predicting a world-war as a result of the Tripolitan
affair.     The pan-Islamic proclamation reads:
"Under no circumstances can Turkey surrender' Tripoli to Italy. To evacuate Tripoli would be equal to suicide, both as a Calil'ulo and a state. All
Mohammedans will support Turkey in this position and it must not be forgotten
that the I'anislamist organization IB now in the hands of educated Europeans.
The center of agitation is not in the Orient, hut in one of the capital cities of
Europe. What this organization demands of Turkey is: to carry out the boycott, not only in Turkey, but throughout the world, wherever Mohammedans
have a home, in Egypt, India, Algiers, the; Crimea, the Caucasus, and elsewhere.
The Califate must make every effort to call out the help of the whole Mohammedan world in the shape of money and men. If things come to an extremity;
and in case the Powers do not call a halt to Italy, the Califate will feel itself
compelled to think that all hope of a just arrangement, especially such as would
preclude the possibility of a holy war, is out of the question. Should Turkey
be disappointed in her expectation, the matter will be decided over her head.
In two months the pilgrims start for Mecca, and there we may expect anything
to happen."
The man whose days are spent
in searching for mineral indications and whose dreams at night
are of fabulous gold discoveries,
; lives too close to the scenery to
properly appreciate the beauties
; of nature.   To the prospector the
trees and flowers of the mountains are trees and flowers���no-
j thing more.
An  exception to this rule is
: Gustave Gervais, a veteran prospector of the north, who has in
the course of his wanderings over,
southern  Yukon   and   northern
' British Columbia, gathered a not-
t able collection of botanical speci-
j mens.   In   1905,   after   several
j years spent in the northern gold
; fields, Mr. Gervais began thecol-
- lection of flowers, plants, mosses
and forest specimens, and before
I coming to this district had accumulated nearly 2,000 specimens.
Some 1,500 specimens, which he
had mounted, were exhibited in
I White   Horse,   where   they  attracted admiring attention. They
are now deposited in the museum
at Victoria, while the collector,
pursuing his hobby in northern
British Columbia, is endeavoring
to complete his work  by adding
to   his   collection specimens  of
every variety of vegetable growth
not already included.   The only
specimens which he thinks it possible to add to his collection in
the future are rare plants, the
seeds of which lie dormant for
years, awaiting unusual seasonal

NOTICE TO THE BUSINESS MEN
PXHAZELTON
Wishing to give the people of Hazelton the first chance of securing lots,
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway have reserved a limited number in
the proposed business center. Intending purchasers can make their
reservations now, through us. As there is no doubt that all of the best
lots in the townsite, with the exception of those reserved, will be sold
at the auction, it would be advisable to see us immediately if you wish
to secure a good location without paying two prices. Come in and look
at the townsite plans and let us tell you why South Hazelton is bound
to be the big city of this district.

Correspondence
In publishing the communication
which follows, the Miner has omitted
paragraphs in which the writer indulges
in personalities which have nothing to
do with the issue.
Editor Miner:���In your editorial of
the issue of December 2nd, you did not
directly name me as the "mischief-
maker," but you might just as well
have done so, as far as giving the public of Hazelton a clear idea of whom
you meant. Perhaps I am a mischief
maker, but my record since coming to
this Province, (which is well known to
so many and which I could not conceal
even if I wished,) shows that I have
done as much as most other men to
open up this country.
In 1883, I operated in the Big Bend
country north of Revelstoke; in 1887 I
prospected and located on Toad Mountain and assisted in the starting of what
is now the city of Nelson. In 1890 I
was in Rossland, the third man in that
camp and one of the principal locators.
I built the first house in the great
Slocan country; also the first house on
Canoe river and on Wood river, which
are the two main tributaries of the Columbia river in British Columbia. I
prospected and mined in the Cariboo,
Peace river, Mackenzie river and spent
a few years in the Yukon and Alaska,
but I take no special credit for this, as
I was there to further my own interests,
as well as of others.
I came to this country in 1903 and
was the first settler to be issued a
Crown Grant as an actual settler in the
Bulkley valley. 1 located dozens of
settlers in the Bulkley valley; those
who had money paid me for the trouble;
those who did not had my services for
nothing. I cut the trail and located the
first mining claim in the Babine range
a year before anyone else.
For the last two or three years my
services have always been available in
the public interests and for the benefit
of the people ot Hazelton, and I have
shown time and again that I have been
willing to do my part both in labor and
in donating generously towards the
different celebrations, Who was it got
the telegraph rates reduced? The
weekly mail service and many other
things? As far as supporting the
newspapers of Hazelton, I have paid
them more than double that of any
other person in this town, although I
am called a mischief-maker, because I
am against blind pigs and all other sorts
of crime and am not afraid to say so
at the risk of again being called a mischief-maker. I think that even the
blind piggers themselves have more respect for a man who declares himself
than for a man who is neither one
thing or the other, in other words a
"fence-straddler," and who is afraid to
show his citizenship against lawlessness.
Now, as for my particular attitude
towards the question to which this
editorial denunciation refers, the Government licences the sale of liquor only
to houses which conform to the high
standard required. Three such hotels
have been built in this town at a large
expense and are conducted within the
law, and cannot be ruined by competition with outlaw businesses.

J. M. Macturk, of North Fran-
cois, was a visitor in Hazelton
train service, by cancelling the
Saturday train. This will leave
only one train a week, leaving
Prince Rupert on Wednesday and
returning from Newtown at 9
a.m. on Thursday.
The new system, under which
the Hazelton office of the govern-
j ment telegraphs is operated as a
relay station, is proving an excellent one, the public service being
much improved. All business is
now kept moving without the in-
'. terruptions which were unavoid-
', able under the former system.

The Police Calendar
The week has been a busy one for the
police, a score of cases appearing on
the docket. A majority of the cases
arose from the illegal sale of liquor to
Indians and others. Alice Wilson, an
Andimaul Indian woman, was found
intoxicated in a room in the Hazelton
hotel, and was lined $25. Refusing to
tell who supplied her with liquor, she
was further sentenced to fourteen days'
imprisonment. Out of this case arose
a charge against C. G. Harvey, holder
of the license, of allowing Indian women
to frequent the house for immoral purposes. In the police court this morning
the defendant made a successful defence, the evidence failing to show
knowledge on his part of the presence
of the women.
The efforts of Chief Wynn and the
constables to eradicate the blind pig
industry in New Hazelton resulted in
the conviction of two offenders, who
were each fined the maximum amount,
.��300 and costs. The chief constable
called attention to the inadequate nature
of the penalty provided for the offence,
and expressed the belief that imprisonment would prove a better preventative.
The magistrate concurred.
William Bunyan, found guilty of supplying liquor to Indians, was sentenced
to six months in New Westminster.
Three men charged with gamblingwere
allowed their liberty on payment of $20
fines.

DON'TS.
Don't make a sloppy mash. It
brings bowel trouble, aud the hens will
not relish the thin paste.
Don't keep more than one male bird
to a small Hock unless you have some
separately confined. Warring cocks
knock the egg record.
Don't forget that excitement in the
laying room creates room in the egg
basket
Don't change feed suddenly. A new
ration fed point blank brings sorrow to
the chicken crank.
Don't lose your temper wheu writing to a complaining customer. The
man with cool and level head seldom
regrets what he has said.
Don't join the pessimists. They are
a cross of fool, fossil, knocker, blocker,
jerker aud shirker. With all their
prophecy of ill the wheels of progress
spin round still.
Dou't expect eggs iu cold weather
if you do not house and feed your hens
properly, A frozen hen with hungry
look can't swell the cash in your bunk-
book.
Don't breed pigeons in molting season. They need all their blood for
feathers.    Such squabs are worthless.
Don't be so foolish as to buy "poultry secrets." It's a secret plan to roll
the poultrymau.
Dou't set the brooder on last year's
location, aud place it high and dry.
Don't keep chicks long iu the incu-
bator after batch is over, and dust and
clean well before you start to hatch
aunt her batch.
Don't forget to calculate the number
of chicks you cau just raise right,
hatch 'em, then blow out the incubator
light
Don't let litter stand in the water
uessels aud rot.  Think of such drink!

"It is beautiful," whispered Mrs.
Peterby. "Don't thiuk 1 ever suw a

Perfectly lovely!"
Pcterhy turned his face slowly and
gazed at her.

Greater London has a population of 7,252,963 and covers an
area of 693 square miles, according to statistics just published by
the county council.
The Vancouver city council will
be asked to pass a bylaw to spend
one million dollars for a new city
hall. The question of the legality
of the bylaw must first be settled.
Sixty passsengers, it is estimated, lost their lives through
the plunging of a train into the
river Thouet, France, owing to
the breakdown of a bridge on the

Dr. Wu Ting Fang and other
rebel leaders are working hard
to complete their proclamation
which will be issued shortly asking all nations to recognize the
Chinese republic. The proclamation possibly will be issued within a few days, according to a
Shanghai despatch.
There is evidence of a well defined revolutionary plot, which
appears to have its base in the
northern part of Mexico. Agents
of the department of justice and
the American troops along the
border have been ordered to
watch closely and prevent any
violation of the neutrality laws.
The Mining Convention at Nelson has passed resolutions asking
the Federal government to appoint a commission to investigate the silver, lead and zinc industry, and to create a separate
portfolio of mines to be held by
a Minister who will devote his
entire time to the work.
In his first speech in the House
of Commons as Unionist leader,
BonarLaw pointed out the wide-
spead movement in Scotland in
favor of removing the embargo
on the importation of Canadian
cattle. He believed Sir Wilfrid
Laurier had gone so far as to
suggest to the present government that this embargo was disguised protection. If that embargo were swept away the
people who would suffer would
be those raising store cattle in
Ireland.
Owiiifi to the strike of the coal
miners the Granby company's
smelter, as well as its mines at
Phoenix, have been out of commission for some months, although the Granby ran for some
time on coke procured in the east.
The settlement of the strike will
mean that some 600 men will be
put to work almost immediately
at the company's several proper
ties in the Boundary, and that
some 300 to 350 more will be put
on at the smelter in Grand Forks
just as soon as coke can be secured from the Crows Nest district.
The super-dreadnaught "Riva-
davia," built for the Argentine
navy at Quincy, Mass., gives the
Argentine Republic the largest
and most powerful battleship
afloat. She will be able to fire
twelve 12-in. guns on either
broadside, or eight ahead and
eight astern. Aside from the
main battery of 12-in. guns, the
armament consists of twelve 6-in.
guns, and 12 4-in. guns. The
vessel has a length of 585 ft., a
breadth of 98 ft, her tonnage is

The Practical
Townsite
rstBam
There are a few questions in relation to the townsite situation that the people of this district are, up to the
present, somewhat concerned about        These, as far as they relate to New Hazelton, we are in position to say, are being solved in a manner that will leave no doubt in the minds of the people as to these particular points.
������ ������   ������   ������

a
New Hazelton Depot
It has been said by those with other propositions to put forward
that there would be no station on lot 882, New Hazelton. The
appended letter speaks for itself:���
"Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,
"Winnipeg, Man.
"Chas. H. Mansur, Assistant Solicitor.
"Nov. 17, 1910.
"A. Whealler, Esq., Barrister,
"Vancouver, B.C.
"Dear Sir:-Re Lot 882, Coast District, B.C. Your letter of
the 2nd September last has been referred to me by the Land Commissioner. I have had tracing attached to each one of the enclosed
conveyances, and enclose herewith an extra blue print for your
copy of conveyance which you desire to keep. I note that you
request that a conveyance be incorporated in this Deed, that a
siding be placed and maintained on this land, The Company
would much prefer to have clear title to this right-of-way, but at
the same time it is their intention to establish and maintain a siding
on this property, and it seems to me that an undertaking in the
form of a letter would be sufficient for your purposes. I am,
therefore, authorized to undertake, on behalf of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Co., that the Company will construct a siding upon
the land described in the enclosed conveyance, and that so long as
the Company's line of railway is in its present location, this siding
will not be removed east or west of this land.
"You will understand that the location of the Company's line
might be at some future time and for some unforeseen cause
changed by the Board of Railway Commission and the Company
would not like to bind itself to maintain a siding at this point forever, as upon the application to the Board the Company might be
ordered to change its location.
"1 think the above undertaking should be sufficient guarantee
to you of the good faith of the Company and I trust that you will
not insist upon this covenant being incorporated in the Deed.
"Yours truly,
"(Signed) CHAS. H. MANSUR,
"Assistant Solicitor."
Also, if there were no such agreement with the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Co., there would still be a station at New Hazelton,
as the location of stations on the line are governed by the Dominion
Railway Commissioners.
Read the following extracts from the Dominion Railway Act:
Revised Statutes op Canada, 1906.   Vol.. 1.
STATIONS.
258. Every station of the Company shall ho erected, operated and maintained with Kood and sufficient accommodation and facilities for traffic.
2. Before the company proceeds to erect any station upon its railway, the
location of such station shall be approved of hy the Hoard.
3. In the case of any Railway, whether subject to the legislative authority
of the Parliament of Canada or not, subsidized in money, or in land, after Ihe
eighteenth day uf July, one thousand nine hundred, under the authority of an
act of the Parliament of Canada, the payment and acceptance of such subsidy
shall he taken to he subject to the covenant or condition, whether expressed or
not in any agreement relating to such suhsidy, that the company, for the time
heine; owing or operating such railway shall, when thereto directed or ordered
hy the Hoard, maintain and operate stations with such accommodation or facilities
in connection therewith as are defined hy the Hoard, at such points on the railway as are designated in such order.
The Railway Commission will meet in Ottawa in a
few days and after their Session the exact point of the
depot on lot 882 will be announced.
The Bulkley Bridge
Now in regards to a bridge across the Bulkley river, connecting
the roads from the mines with the railway. It has been quite
extensively advertised, although very little in Hazelton, that a
bridge was to be constructed at a point farther down stream than
the present bridge.
To anyone who knows the location of the mines and the topography of the country, this idea is comedy. If there is a mine
owner on Nine-mile mountain, or Four-mile mountain, who is willing to say that there is any other route from the mines to the railway that will favorably compare, as to distance and grades, with
that to New Hazelton, over the proposed high-level bridge across
the Bulkley at Haguelgate, we have a special cash prize of $250.00
awaiting him in our office to be paid over on his word.
We are pleased to announce that an engineer will be on the
ground at an early date to make a survey, and immediately his
report is forthcoming the preliminaries to the construction of the
bridge will be proceeded with.
Stop and Think!
Here we come to one of the most important features in regard
to the station grounds. The grade through New Hazelton allotted
to the G. T. P. is on level grade.
New Hazelton is the only point on the G. T. P. from the bridge
across the Skeena where a level grade can be procured. From New
Hazelton west the grades are maximum.
The Road to Ground Hog
The cheapest route, the shortest route, and the route with the
easiest grade to the Groundhog Coal Fields from the G. T. P. main
line is from New Hazelton. In fact this is the only feasible route,
according to the engineers and those pioneers who have covered
every foot of the country.
