HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1911
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
B.C. AWARDED
FIRST PRIZE
Stillwell Trophy and Thousand Dollar Prize Won By
Our Potato Exhibit.
BEST WHEAT EXHIBITED
British Columbia's Display Outclasses
Everything Shown at Land and Irrigation Fair in New York, Carrying Off
Honors and Cash from All   America
(Special to The Miner)
Victoria, Nov. 9:���At the Land
and Irrigation Exposition in
Madison Square Garden, New
York, British Columbia won the
Stilwell trophy and $1000 as first
prize for her potato exhibit.
This success, though not unexpected, will be most gratifying
to the agriculturists of the province, as the exhibit, which
weighed a ton and a half and
comprised sixty varieties of potatoes from many parts of British
Columbia, had to compete with
exhibits from all parts of the
United States and Canada. The
province also won the prize of
$1000 in gold offered by Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy for the best
hundred pound exhibit of wheat
at the show. British Columbia's
wheat easily outclassed the
United States exhibits.
It is proposed here that a selection of potatoes from the prize
exhibit be sent to King George
as a sample of the produce of his
farthest west province. '
WILL BUILD RINK
Athletic Association Proposes to Provide
Facilities For Skating
and Hockey
Chief among winter amusements in Hazelton is ice-
skating, although devotees of the
sport have heretofore been
obliged to go out to Charleson
lake, or to clear temporary rinks
on the river. With the opening
of the season the skaters of the
town, most of whom are members
of the Athletic association, are
making plans for the construction
of a rink, and if their project is
carried out will be able to enjoy
their exhilarating pastime without the inconveniences of past
seasons.
At a general meeting of the
Athletic association, held in the
reading room on Thursday evening, it was unanimously decided
to undertake the construction of
a rink close to town, the association being fortunately possessed
of a surplus sufficient to defray a
considerable part of the necessary
expense. G. O. Graham was
chairman of the meeting, which
was attended by a majority of
the members. When the proposal
to devote the funds of the association to the construction of a
rink was made there was not a
dissentient voice, the members
being enthusiastic in their support of the plan.
A committee consisting of Rev.
D. R. McLean, Arthur Skelhorne
and A. C. Aldous was appointed
to consider ways and means and
report to the association at an
adjourned meeting to be held
this evening.
At tonight's meeting the location of the rink will be decided
upon. It is probable that the
athletic ground will be chosen as
it affords room for a rink on
which hockey can be played, and
is an excellent location if the cost
of making a rink does not prove
too great.        '
Ministers Return
Ottawa: Hon. Messrs. McBride, Bowser and Ross left for
the west today. They express
themselves as satisfied that full
justice will be accorded British
Columbia when Premier Borden
takes action on the claims of the
Province.
House Will Open
On Thursday Next
Ottawa, Nov. 10:���The official
announcement of the opening of
the House of Commons on November 16 has been made. The members will be sworn in on Wednesday, the fifteenth. A new carpet
has been laid in the chamber,
and, in accordance with custom,
a new chair is provided for the
speaker-designate, Dr. Sproule.
There is unexampled activity in
all departments, in view of the
reorganizations which are expected. On good authority it is
stated that the government is
favorably disposed toward the
Georgian Bay canal project, and
a sum of substantial proportions
is likely to be placed in the estimates for the canal.
C. N, R. MAKES PROGRESS
President Mackenzie Declares Its Trains
Will Run from Coast to Coast
Before End of 1913
Toronto, Nov. 9:���Sir William
Mackenzie, interviewed here on
his return from an extended trip
over the Canadian Northern,
said that in two years that railway will be running from coast
to coast. By December, 1913, the
entire line now under construction from Edmonton to Victoria
will be completed. Sir William
met Hon. Richard McBride and
Hon W. J. Bowser in Chicago,
their parties traveling to Toronto
in a special train.
Canadian Northern reports
justcompiled show the completion
of over a thousand miles of new
track this year in Saskatchewan
and Alberta. On the new line
from Edmonton to Calgary grading is completed throughout and
rails will be laid into Calgary
early next year. Sixteen thousand seven hundred men are now
employed on construction work
on the various divisions of the
road, the largest party being in
British Columbia, where three
thousand men are at work.
Carlson Seeks Compensation
About two years ago J. A.
Hamilton and Frederick Carlson
were injured by a blasting accident while removing obstructions
from the bank of the Bulkley on
Hamilton's ranch in Pleasant Valley. Carlson, who lost his eyesight, has entered suit at Vancouver, claiming$10,000 damages
from Hampton, on the ground
that the accident was the result
of defective explosives being supplied. At the time it was stated
that dynamite which had been
placed under a stump had failed
to explode when expected, and
that the men had just reached
the- stump to investigate when
the delayed explosion took place.
WAR'S WIDE DESOLATION
SPREADING OVER CHINA
Terrible Massacres Reported in Nanking���Cities
Burned and Devastated by Imperial Troops
and Revolutionaries���Hundreds of Thousands Destitute and Homeless���Rebels
Are Gaining the Advantage.
Balfour Retires
London: Hon. A.J. Balfour
has resigned the leadership of
Unionist party. Bonar Law,
who is a Canadian by birth, may
be chosen as his successor.
Others mentioned are Austin
Chamberlin, W. W. Long and
F. E. Smith.
Peking,  Nov. 10: -The rebel-!
lion continues to spread throughout  China,   the   revolutionaries
continuing to gain ground.    The!
city of Fu  Chow is in the hands
of the rebels, who have  wiped
out the entire population of the j
Manchu district, but did not disturb   the   foreign   settlements. |
The city, which has a population j
of 700,000, is threatened with  a:
scarcity of provisions, owing to!
the demoralization of trade in the
district
A condition bordering upon
anarchy exists in various parts of
Hunan province, which contains
many missionaries and other
Europeans.
As a result of the severe fighting at Hankow, two-thirds of the
city has been laid waste by fire.
Besides the large loss of life, the
property loss is over $60,000,000
and 400,000 inhabitants are
homeless and destitute.
The   situation   in   Peking   is
quiet, but great anxiety is felt.
Gold bars to the value of $30,000,-
000 have been removed from the j
palace to tho European banks in ���
Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Thousands Slaughtered
Nanking, Nov. 10: This historic city lies tonight in the shadow of Manchu butchery, the
scene of fire, rapine and desolation. In the last two days
thousands have been slaughtered,
the massacre being unrivalled in
modern history. Thousands of
Manchu and Imperial troops hold
the high land about the city,
making constant attempts to
drive out the rebel forces which
are in possession of the city.
Ninety thousand of the inhabitants escaped before the battle.
Among those who remained
there was frightful slaughter.
Unarmed citizens, the aged,
and women with babes in arms
were butchered.
New Maps Ready
Canada's Bar Bill
Landseekers may now obtain,
at the government office here,
copies of the pre-emptors' maps
recently issued by the provincial
government. These maps, which
are calculated to be of great use
to intending pre-emptors, show
the lands already alienated and
those which are open for location
in the various districts of the
northern interior. Map No. 1 includes parts of the Fort Fraser
and Fort George land recording
districts, and shows the valleys
of the Nechaco and Stuart rivers.
No. 2 covers the Blackwater and
Nazco rivers, lying partly in the
Fort Fraser, Fort George and
Cariboo districts. No. 3 shows
the lands of the upper Fraser,
the Salmon and Willow rivers, in
the Fort George and Peace river
districts. Sheet No. 4 deals with
the Francois and Ootsa lake
country, taking in parts of the
Hazelton and Fort Fraser land
districts.
Will Not Interfere In
Chinese Revolution
London, Nov. 10:��� The Premier, speaking at the Lord
Mayor's banquet, on the foreign
policy of Great Britain, said the
peaceful settlement of the Moroccan question was a great relief to
Europe, removing what was perhaps the greatest obstacle to the
smooth working of European
diplomacy. Referring to the!
crisis in China, he said: "Wei
have no desire to interfere in
China's internal affairs." It is
announced that the government
will restrict its course to the protection of the lives and property
of its subjects.

PRINCE WAS INDISCREET
Ottawa,    Nov.    9:��� Canada's.
consumption of liquors and tobacco shows a marked increase for
the past fiscal year. The per capita
consumption of spirits was .859
gallons, against .815 gallons in!
1910.    That of beer was 5.134
gallons, as against 5.276 gallons;
that of wine .104 gallons, against j
.097 gallons,   while the tobacco
used increased from 2.940 pounds
per capita to 3.011 pounds.
The total quantity  of tobacco
smoked was 18,903,322 pounds,!
against 17.901,279 pounds in 1910
and 17,217,710 pounds  in  1909.
The cigarettes smoked  reached
the enormous sum of 585,935,370
against 451,095,138 in  1910 andj
356,750,130 in 1909.    The   cigars!

compared   with   205,820,851 in j
1910 and 192,105,371 in 1909.
Heir  to  German   Throne   Embarrasses
Government Applauding Criticisms of Peace Policy
Berlin, Nov. 10:���While the debate on the Chancellor's settlement of the Franco-German dispute over Morocco was in progress in the Reichstag, the
Crown Prince caused a sensation
by openly applauding criticisms
of the peaceful policy advocated
by the government. His attitude
has caused a storm of press protests. The Emperor's advisers
fear that the impression will be
given abroad that the heir to the
throne is heading the German
war party.
The Chancellor, in defending
the proposed treaty, answered
accusationsof weakness bydeclar-
ing that German prestige rebuked
those who demanded a display of
the German fist.
A considerable portion  of the
press expresses amazement that
the Chancellor did not resign as
a consequence of the demonstra-1
tion made by the Crown  Prince.
Ottawa, Nov. 10: Premier
McBride, of British Columbia,
Hon. W. J. Bowser and Hon. W.
R.Ross have had conferences with
Hon. R. L. Borden and his colleagues on various subjects affecting the western province, in pursuance of the objects of their
mission. The result is not likely
to be announced for some time.
The chief questions under discussion are: better terms or a larger
subsidy from the Dominion; better regulation of Asiatic immigration; administration by the
province of Peace river lands and
lands within the Canadian Pacific
railway belt; definition of the
province's reversionary rights in
Indian reserves; efficient fishery
protection cruisers and more harbor and river improvements.
Mr. McBride, when interviewed,
said: "Mr. Borden in prior conferences has favored the appointment of a commission to enquire
into British Columbia's claims.
How the commission is to be appointed is for Mr. Borden to decide. We have every confidence
in the result, looking for an early
settlement by the Borden government of all outstanding questions.
At a conference six years ago
with Sir Wilfrid Laurier, British
Columbia, on the question of better terms, was given one hundred
thousand dollars yearly for ten
years. Sir Wilfrid added the
clause 'final and unalterable';
but on appeal the colonial secretary, in the Imperial house, made
it plain that British Columbia
could re-open the question at any
time desired."
GERMANY WAS EAGER
Duke to Visit Coast
Ottawa, Nov. 10: The Duke of
Connaught has promised Premier
McBride of British Columbia that
he will visit that province early
next summer. His Royal Highness stateil that he had a lively
and pleasant recollection of his
visit to British Columbia in 1890.
Hon. J. I). Hazen, minister of
marine and fisheries, has assured
Attorney-general Bowser that he
will visit the Pacific coast in .July,
to look into provincial matters in
which his department is interested.
A Quick Round Trip
Andre Jager-Schmidt, a Paris
journalist, has succeeded in
officially completing a circuit of
the world in 38 days, 19 hours, 43
minutes and 37 4-5 seconds.
I Jager-Schmidt started from Paris
in an attempt to beat the record
of M. Stiegler, of the Paris
Matin, who made the journey
around the world in 63 days.
The Debating Club
A plan which provides for
fortnightly debates during the
winter, with alternate open
meetings to which ladies will be
invited, has been prepared by
the executive committee of the
Hazelton Debating Club, and
will be submitted to a general
meeting of the club on Wednesday evening next. An active
interest in the new organization
is being taken by many of the
young men of the town, and
| there is no doubt the club will
be of benefit to its members.
New Timber Policy
(Special I., The Miner)
Victoria. Nov. 10: Hon. Richard McBride, now al Ottawa, has
stated that the session of the
local legislature, which will open
in January, is likely to lie a short
one. Hon. W. R. Ross, who is
also in the Federal capital, is preparing a new timber policy,
which is likely to be the most important measure before the house
at the coining session.
"First-to-Hazcllon" Bicycle
Though he performed the feat
without the aid of a press agent,
Marcus Levy, a cigar salesman
who rode the "First-to-Hazelton"
bicycle, arriving here from the
end of steel on Tuesday, accomplished something worth while.
The pioneer cyclist has to his
credit a still more remarkable
trip, having ridden his bicycle
over the river ice from Dawson
to St. Michael, in the days of the
Nome excitement. The distance
is 1800 miles, and Levy's time
was less than twenty days.
Quintuplets Rom
Senora Rodriguez, wife of Don
Francisco Rodriguez, a prominent
merchant of Costa Rica, gave
birth to five sons a few days ago.
The attending physician believes
that the quintuplets will live.
King and Queen Sail To-day
London, Nov. 10: KingGeorge
and Queen Mary will sail for In-1
dia tomorrow on the specially
commissioned steamer Medina.'
Four first class cruisers will
serve as escort on the voyage,
which will be via the Cape.
Their Majesties will make their
slate entrance into Delhi, the
scene of the coronation durbar,
on December 7. The most brilliant pageant in the history of
modern India has been arranged
lor the occasion.
High Silver-Lead Values
Evidence of the value of the
number two vein on the American
Boy group, which is now being
developed by tunnel, is to be!
found in the returns received
from an average assay of a piece
of surface ore weighing 141
pounds, showing values of 652.4.
ounces of silver and 41.4 percent
lead, or $384.15 in all. Carbonates from the same vein assayed
$125.63, all values. The shaft on
number 3 vein is being sunk at
record speed, having a depth of
67 feet on Thursday. An average
of the silver and lead contents of
the vein at a depth of 55 feet is
$70.47. The vein shows the'
satisfactory width of two and a
half feet.
Massed Her Troops on Belgian Frontier
In Expectation of War
with France
It is rumored in Brussels military circles that the French government is making confidential
inquiries as to the truth of a report that several weeks ago, when
the Franco-German dispute over
Morocco appeared at its worst,
the Germans had collected at their
military camp at Elsenborn, on
the Belgian frontier, over 1,200
motors and motor-busses. These,
in case of war, could have rushed
into Belgium thousands of men,
with their ammunition, within a
few hours. Theobject, of course,
would have been to constitute an
advanced guard, which would
have protected from destruction
by the Belgians the railroads
leading to the least protected
part of France, and would have
been used to convey thither one
or two German army corps.
The object of the French inquiry is to prevail upon the Belgian government to secure its
territory against such an event in
case of an outbreak of hostilities
later on.

No. 11.
Settling the Townsite Question
It is announced this week that the final agreement between the
Grand Trunk Pacific and the Natural Resources Security company,
providing for the establishment of a railway station and yard on the
South Hazelton townsite, has been signed and registered. This
undoubtedly means the immediate beginning of development work
on the townsite which Hazelton people are inclined to regard as the
coming location of the town. Lot 851, on which the station is to
be located, is just a mile and a half from the business center of the
present town, so that the construction of a bridge over the Bulkley
river is the only requisite for communication. The yards, it is
stated, will be laid out partly on lot 851 and partly on lot 852, a
little upriver from the station. This situation is calculated to provide the most central location for the large town which will be
built up by the development of the great mineral and other
resources directly tributary to Hazelton, and the fact that the
Natural Resources Security company, an ably managed concern of
wide influence and possessing unlimited financial resources, is to
have the management of the townsite, is a guarantee that an
aggressive campaign for the development of the coming city will
be maintained until the new Hazelton is firmly established.
There is no town of its size on the Pacific coast which has the
same volume of business as Hazelton. The merchants of this
place annually turn over stocks aggregating a million and a half;
thus it will be readily seen that the combined towns of Hazelton and
South Hazelton require only proper management to ensure a
growth commensurate with the rapid development  of the district.
The title to lots in the new townsite is vested in the Grand
Trunk Pacific Development Co., the holding company owned by the
G. T. P., through which the railway handles all its lands; assurance
being thus given that South Hazelton is the official location of the
permanent town. The local agents for the townsite state that on
the arrival of the necessary maps, which are expected daily, the
work of clearing will begin, and the opening up of the townsite
will proceed without delay. The announcement of the program
for the exploitation of the new town, which will doubtless include
wide advertising for the district, will be awaited with interest by
the business people of Hazelton, who now see a good prospect of
the settlement of the townsite question for good and all.
Japs Control Fisheries
In a speech at Vancouver, H.
H. Stephens, M. P. for that city,
charged that the coast and deep-
sea fishing in this province was
controlled by a Japanese secret
society, pledged to promote the
interests of the members to the
detriment of white fishermen,
! and that they have instituted an
almost complete monopoly ot the
fishing industry in this province.
Mr. Stevens stated that this
society is now over 10,000 strong
and that it includes almost every
Japanese resident in the province interested in any way
in the fishing industry. It has
its headquarters at Steveston, he
said, where a meeting was held
by the member last Tuesday
night. He further stated that
one of the articles of the association's constitution was that death
shall be the penalty for any member who betrays the secrets of
the organization.
In conclusion, Mr. Stevens appealed to the people of the province to awaken to the full significance of the fisheries question
in British Columbia.
Their Good Work Appreciated
The work carried on by the Y. M. C. A. among the men employed on the construction of this section of the Grand Trunk
Pacific stamps that organization as one of the most active and useful religious bodies of the day. Making the center of its activities
in this district at Skeena crossing, where a large number of men
employed, the association is exerting a most beneficial influence
over men who could be reached by no other means than those
adopted. Commodious club rooms, affording every practicable
facility for rest, recreation and mental and moral improvement, are
always open to the men, at nominal cost, and without oppressive
restrictions, and are appreciated and much used by the railroaders
in the vicinity. A large share of credit is due to Secretary W.
H. Morrison, whose energy and ability have made for the success
of the work, and to the men whose liberality supports the railway
branch of the Y. M. C. A.
To Protect Game and Preserve Forests
The government of the Dominion is looking after the preservation of its game, and incidentally the conservation of natural
forests. Canada has already some magnificant reservations east
and west. It is now about to enter on the creation of a new one
on a scale commensurate with present apprehension of its growth
and prosperity at home and abroad. One of the largest game
preserves in the world is to be created by the dedication of practically all the land along the eastern slope of the Canadian Rockies.
This tract will be forty to fifty miles wide and will extend north
and south for a distance of no less than 500 miles. All the precautions usual in Canada are to be taken with a view to the protection of the timber from fire. The reservation is to be in effect
a great storage and supply district for native birds and animals.
The regulations governing the reserve will also provide a sanctuary
for fur-bearing animals, which in many districts contiguous to that
in question are in danger of practical extinction.
Clements Does Not Favor Asiatics
Before leaving for Ottawa, H. S. Clements, the new member
for Comox-Atlin, who had just completed a tour of a large part of
his big constituency, stated in Victoria that it was his intention to
press for better postal and telegraphic facilities for the district.
He has taken his stand with Premier McBride on the Asiatic
question.       Speaking of the fisheries question, he said:
"I have just returned from a trip along the northern
coast and I am much impressed with the vital need for a
more adequate fishery protection service. The few small
cruisers which have been operated heretofore are
grotesquely inadequate and the matter is one which must
receive immediate attention. I have no hesitation in
saying that millions upon millions of dollars have been lost
to the assets of Canada through the failure of the government to take measures for the protection of the fisheries in
this province.
"Speaking as a representative of the one constituency
in the province which has more largely to do with the fishing industry than any other, 1 may say that I am utterly
opposed to any policy which will aid aliens in getting a
further predominant hold upon that industry. 1 well appreciate the disadvantages under which the cannerymen
and other operators work, especially in regard to labor,
but we must encourage the employment of whites as far as
possible. Personally, I will not agree to the issuing of
more licences to Japanese fishermen either now or in the
future, whether these licences be for herring or salmon or
otherwise."
We believe the people of this district may congratulate themselves upon having returned an agressive member of parliament,
who holds views which will commend themselves to nine out of ten
of the white men residing in Comox-Atlin, and who has the energy
to get out and fight for his principles.
Game Warden's Plans
Although British Columbia is
one of the finest game preserves
in the world and possesses a climate quite as even as prevails
the year round throughout the
British Isles, few birds of the
songster variety are to be found
in any portion of this section of
the Dominion, a fact realized by
very few, according to a statement made by Bryan Williams,
provincial game warden, to the
Vancouver Province. Mr. Williams has a plan on foot for importing several hundred of these
birds from Great Britain with a
view to acclimatizing them to
this part of the world.
"Generally speaking there is
very little difference in the climate of British Columbia and
that prevailing in most parts of
England," said Mr. Williams.
"But it is a curious fact that if
you travel in almost any part of
the province you will not find
any birds of the songster species
worth speaking about. Of course
we have one or two varieties but
they are not to be compared with
those to be found in Great Britain.
In almost any part of England if
you take a walk through the
woods you will hear the beautiful
song of the blackbird, the thrush,
the finches and many other species of birds singing in the trees."
Continuing, Mr. Williams said
the suggestion to import several
I hundred birds from Great Britain
had been made by several prominent bird enthusiasts in different
parts of the province and the
matter will in all probability be
laid before the department for
consideration.
The proposal of the provincial
: government to import several
head of red deer from the old
country but which was turned
down by the Dominion government during the past year, is to
i be revived. During the visit of
Hon. W. J. Bowser to Ottawa,
the matter will again be brought
up and an attempt made to have
the question satisfactorily settled.
It is the intention of the provincial game warden's office to
import about thirty head of hinds
and stags to be placed on the
government's farm at Coquitlam
where preparations have already
been  made for   housing   them.
These preparations were made
by the government before the
refusal of the federal authorities
was met with. The Dominion
government refused to allow the
importation of red deer on account of the prevalence of foot
and mouth disease among the
sheep in Great Britain.
Advocates Lease System
Quoting the United States
supreme court to support his contention that in undertaking railroad construction the government
is, in effect "simply resumingone
of its own proper functions, "and
not invading the legitimate domain of private enterprises,
Secretary of the Interior Walter
N. Fisher, in an address before
the American mining congress at
Chicago, suggested government
ownership and the operation of
mines and transportation facilities in Alaska on a limited scale.
He declared, however, that direct government operation, including the mining and sending
of coal, involved such deep and
far-reaching changes, both of
policy and of administration, that
there was no likelihood at the
present time of its adoption to
the exclusion of private operation, and that while much can be
said in favor of the government
entering experimentally into,
these fields, he did not believe
in the policy of having the government alone own and mine Alaskan
coal.
The secretary expressed opposition to the policy of selling
coal lands outright, saying he be-.
lieved that the leasing system
avoids controversy and both
extremes of public and private;
ownership. Therefore, he suggested, government ownership
and the operation of a limited
number of properties as an example to private ownership and
to regulate the latter by competition and the leasing of other fields
under fair government regulations.      	
F. N. Guiterrez and Gumesindo
Valenzuela were tried at Los
Angeles and convicted of counterfeiting. Secret service officials
declare the men to be the cleverest and most successful counterfeiters that ever operated on this
coast. From papers seized in
Velenzuela's room it appears that
he was the treasurer of the Los
Angeles Junta in charge of the
insurrection in Lower California.
This junta collected money from
Mexicans for their cause. In
place of the good money counterfeits were substituted with the
result that great sums of bogus
money were sent into Mexico to
finance the insurrection.

States decreased $3,400,000 and
silver increased $1,300,000 during
the calendar year 1910. These
official estimates were announced
Monday by the mint bureau and
the geological survey. The most
notable features were a decrease
of $4,000,000 in the production of
placer gold in Alaska and an increase of more than $2,000,000
from the gold mines of Nevada,
which produced a new record for
recent times. The total gold production of the United States and
its possessions was $96,000,000,
silver $56,000,000.

 mmmJ THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1911.
News Notes of General Interest
Vancouver proposes to establish
a municipal home for the aged.
Five hundred delegates are
expected to attend the provincial
Conservative convention at New
Westminster, opening Nov. 20.
The first run of the York Dredging company's plant, which is
working placer tin deposits at
Cape York and which has been in
operation less than a month, produced seventy tons of placer tin,
valued at $500 a ton.
A despatch from Peking reports that the revolutionists have
outflanked the imperialists 180
miles north of Hankow. The
rebels, according to the despatch,
captured the government's war
chest, containing 1,500,000 taels.
Sir William Mackenzie, Sir Edmund Walker and Sir Henry Pel-
latt, prominent Toronto capitalists, have become associated with
the Duke of Sutherland in his
plan for settling Scottish and
English families in British Columbia.
Figures obtained from the immigration department this week
show that 33,612 harvesters were
brought into the west by railroads to garner the crops. Of
the total, the C. P. R. carried
22,427. The total figures establish a new record.
The total grain marketed at
Canadian Pacific points this year,
has passed the thirty million
bushel mark. The Canadian
Northern has marketed seventeen
million bushels, which brings the
total shipments of both companies up to 47,000,000.
There is an unlimited market
for British Columbia herring in
the Orient. Last year Shanghai
merchants placed orders for
$1,000,000 worth in gold, but owing to the partial failure of the
catch only secured 10,000 of the
40,000 cases they required.
The provincial tax commission
has completed the work of investigating the taxation system
of the province, and is now engaged in preparing a report of its
proceedings and conclusions for
transmission to the legislature,
which will probably pass amendments to existing tax laws at the
coming session.
The Isthmian Canal Commission
has received bids for the purchase
of more than 100,000 tons of junk
including abandoned locomotives,
dredges, dump cars, machinery
and tools, the lot comprising the
last remnants of the millions of
dollars worth of equipment sent
to the Panama canal by the
French engineers years ago.
The new Oxford English Dictionary will contain, it is said,
400,000 words and an immense
amount of information. It is interesting to learn that there are
in Webster's Unabridged only
100,000 words, and that the
learned Dr. Johnson declared
that a much smaller number was
sufficient for the English scholar.
The correspondents of the London Times and other English
papers at Tripoli have been reporting by way of Malta that the
affair at Benghazi was much
more serious than the Italian cen-;
sorship had permitted to be made
known. The writers estimate
the casualties among the inhabitants resulting from the bombardment by the Italian fleet at 4,000.
The Montreal Chamber of Commerce has issued a report recommending that the Canadian
government should make representations to the imperial government so as to gain consent to
the recognition of the right of
colonial governments to appoint
���consuls abroad, or so to enlarge
their own consular system as to
admit colonial representatives.
The Canadian Locomotive company has made a contract with
the G. T. P. for twenty-five large
type locomotives. With the present capacity of seventy-five locomotives a year, this means a
relatively very large order, and
even with the enlarged shop it
will keep the plant operating for
.at least two months.   The cost of
COAL NOTICES
the engine produced by the company runs from $14,000 to $24,000,
and as the twenty-five ordered by
the G. T. P. are the largest type,
the price will probably range
close to the greater figure.
On September 30 in Scotland,
Walter Knox, the Canadian professional athlete,  won the 100- j
yard dash in 101-5, the pole vault
with 11 feet, the shot-put with 44
feet, the standing jump with 4!
feet 9 1-2 inches, the standing!
hop, step and jump with 31 feet
4 inches, and was second in the i
hammer and broad jump.   In his
British tour just ended Knox won
57 firsts, 23 seconds, 3 thirds, and
4 fourths.
The Central hotel, Goddu Bros.' I
grocery  and  the old   Klondike j
hotel at  Trail   were  destroyed
last week by a fire which spread
so rapidly that residents of the
hotels and the rooms over the j
store were forced to escape in j
their night clothes.   It is esti-|
mated that the loss is $10,000
with $3800 insurance.   The cause
of the fire is a mystery, though
it is believed to be the work of
an incendiary.
Coal War Predicted
The American Mining Congress
in session at Chicago, adopted
resolutions endorsing the deep
waterways movement, recommending the passage of an equitable workmen's compensation
act and urging a modification of
the Sherman Act to permit reasonable agreements between coal
operators.
A prediction of industrial warfare in the coal mining industry
next spring was made by D. W.
Kuhn of Pittsburg in a paper
read by J. W. Wardrop of Pittsburg.   The paper read:
' 'For the last four years the
coal operator has met every condition the country sought to put
on him and he has failed. The I
losses from operations cannot be
continued longer and the crisis is'
at hand.
"In my opinion, next spring,
at the period of wage settlement
with the miners over the country,
there will begin one of the worst
industrial warfares this country
ever has witnessed. It will have
a feast of competition. The consumers of fuel will compete with
one another for coal when there
is no coal to be had.
"The miner will compete with
the operator, pitting his stomach
against the endurance of ^the
operator���an endurance of despair.
"And if it does come, the
blame, the vengeful blame of the
people will be placed where it belongs���on the government and on
the weak'ing coal operators for
the blind and indifferent course
of the one and irresolute weakness of the other."

FUNDS NEEDED
Public School Requires Money To  Meet
Winter Expenses
The trustees of the public
school have asked for voluntary
contributions for school purposes,
the sum of $100 being required to
pay liabilities and provide' fuel
and other necessaries during the
winter. The people of the town
pay no school taxes and are only
required to meet running expenses, as the provincial government pays the salary of the
teacher, and the schoolhouse,
owned by the Hudson's Bay Co.,
is given rent free.
R. S. Sargent, secretary of the
board, will be pleased to receive
subscriptions, which will be acknowledged in the Miner.

store at New Hazelton, occupying
the building recently erected  by
J. A. Hodder.

on to South Bulkley.
While there is no actual scarcity of cordwood in Hazelton; the
supply is likely to be limited until sleighing begins. Dry birch
is now selling at $12.00 a cord.
The ice on Charleson lake is
now in excellent condition, and
skating parties are the regular
thing. On Wednesday evening
a large crowd went out from
town for a skate in the moonlight,
and had a splendid time.
W. N. McLean, of the G. T. P.
engineering staff, who is stationed at residency 22, Mission point,
will leave next week for an extended vacation trip, in the
course of which he will visit his
Scottish home.
Ice in Kitseguecla canyon held
the mail canoe at Skeena crossing on Wednesday, and it was
found necessary to portage the
mail to Sealey. This is unusually
early for the formation of ice in
this part of the river.
The winter train schedule on
the first section of the G. T, P.
went into effect last Monday, and
trains now leave Prince Rupert
only on Wednesdays and Saturdays, returning from Van Arsdol
on Thursdays and Sundays at 4
p. m.

in making the necessary repairs
to the shaft of the Kit-ex-chen,
and taking advantage of the ris-

she will be operated next season.
L.L. DeVoin Wturfleti on Thursday from a visit to his ranch
near Chicken lake. He states
that a great many settlers have
taken up land in that vicinity
and the district promises to prove
one of the most prosperous in the
Bulkley valley.
The cold  weather has somewhat retarded the work of widen-
j ing the bridge over the Bulkley,
; which may not be open for traffic
before Monday.   The necessary
, interruption   of   communication
\vith the Bulkley valley has had
a noticeable effect on the business
of the town.
W. S. (Duke) and Hugh Harris
will leave tomorrow for a visit to
their     home     in     Vancouver.

j around which the hospital people
and their guests gathered, was a
; feature of the pleasant function.

Bank, which is to be opened at
Taylorville as soon as the contractors finish the building, will
be in  charge of E. B. Tatchell,
who arrived from  Prince Rupert
early in the week.    Mr. Tatchell
and R. T. Bishop,  his assistant,
walked up from the railhead.
The unusually severe frosts of
I the last few nights, though  in-
| convenient   in    some   respects,
have had  a good effect on  the
roads, which are no longer mud-
idy,   and   which will provide a
| splendid   foundation for sleigh-
roads  when   the snow   comes.
j Last year the snow came before
i the ground was frozen, with the
result   that  sleighing was not
good until late in the season.
Blasting operations on the
Canadian Northern line, which
parallels the C. P. R. west of
Ashcroft, are responsible for the
demoralization of the telegraph
service this week. For several
days the officials of the government lines have found it necessary to send much of the business
between Vancouver and Ashcroft
by mail. That they have managed
to give reasonably good service
is, in the circumstances, worthy
of note.
One of the auxiliaries of the
Presbyterian church in Hazelton

home of Mrs. Isidore Anger.

Charles Barrett, he enjoyed a
day's excellent sport with the
gun, securing a good bag of
grouse.
Hockey prospects for the coming season are bright. The local
club is preparing for a busy season, with the prospect of matches
with a Bulkley valley team as
well as their rivals of the G. T.
P. engineering corps. A skating
and hockey club has just been
formed in the Bulkley, and it is
intended to build a covered rink

secretary.
It Is stated that ii coiiipivSMor
plant has been secured for the
Rocher de Boule group in Juniper
Basin. Superintendent Frank
Brown is having a sleigh road cut
out in order to get the machinery
up to the claims as soon as it can
be brought up the river.
Omineca Aerie, Fraternal Order of Eagles, Hazelton's pioneer
secret order, has outgrown its
present quarters, and has arranged to hold all future meetings
in the auditorium, the only hall
in town having sufficient capacity
for the organization. Next Tuesday's meeting will be the first in
the new quarters.
Tells of Our Resources
"The Vancouver and Victoria
citizens seem to be so busy with
their own affairs and prosperity
is so apparent in these two lower coast cities, that the wonderful development that has taken
place in the interior is shoved into the background," said George
J. Hammond, president of the
Natural Resources Securities Co.,
to the Vancouver Province.
"The other day the stockholders of the Grand Trunk Pacific
met at Montreal. President
Hays in his annual address to
the stockholders told them that
| the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
would be running trains into
Tete Jaune Cache at the western
end of the Yellowhead Pass and
at the head of navigation on the
South Fork of the Fraser River
late in 1911 which evidently
means in December, 1911. This
means that next spring Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway freight
and passenger trains will connect
with the steamers on the South
Fork of the Fraser River at Tete
Jaune Cache, thus giving direct
rail and water transportation to
a country tributary to 1000 miles
of navigable waterways.   If one
pauses i'dr 11 liidrilent to corisidfi)1
what 1000 miles of almost virgin
territory means, especially a territory such as we have in the
central interior of British Columbia, it will almost astound
him with the possibilities in store
for that region beginning in the
early season of 1912.
"Perhaps I know as much
about the central interior of
British Columbia as any man can
learn at the present time. I
know that beginning next spring
there will actually be millions of
acres of> the finest agricultural
land opened up for settlement
and development on account of
the betterment in transportation
service. I know also that some
of the finest timber areas in
British Columbia will be available
for development and large lumber
interests are already in the field
preparing to put into operation
lumber manufacturing plants of
large magnitude. I know that
mining men have been waiting
for years for this transportation
in order that they might be permitted to develop some of the
richest mining country on the
continent, this all on account of
transportation afforded by the
Grand Trunk Pacific from the
east.
"At the present time Grand
Trunk Pacific trains operate from
Prince Rupert easterly 100 miles.
The trains can go no further than
this point at present on account
of a tunnel which is being constructed. This tunnel, I am told
by officials of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway, will be completed
sometime during the present
winter, and then, as the railroad
grade is already completed into
the Bulkley valley, steel can be
laid and trains can be run to a
point twelve miles west of Hazelton, where the railhead will be
until the bridge across the Skeena
River is completed, some time
next summer."
