Dominion Day Picnic Adds Considerable Sum
To Funds of Red Cross Society
���Large Crowd Present
The Hospital Park presented a
gay appearance on Monday last,
when the biggest and most successful picnic in the long run of
such celebrations was held.
Early in the afternoon and
throughout the proceeding] many
motor cars disgorged heavy loads
of passengers at the gates of the
enclosure, where tagging committees had a busy time coping
with the constant arrivals.
Though the day was inclined to
be cool the refreshment tent
committee was kept busily employed serving ice cream and
cold drinks to a continuous stream
of thirsty souls, thereby obtaining a goodly sum towards the
day's total.
The shooting range, with a
prize of a large box of chocolates
to the best target, was well
patronized, and some very good
scores were turned in.
The cane rack was well supported and many worth-while
prizes made it the center of a
good crowd.
The wheels of fortune, always
a drawing card, were so densely
surrounded at times that one was
convinced that for sporting blood
the people of this district excelled
any. Paddles were snapped up
with ready avidjty, and the soft
click of the revolving wheels
was a purring invitation to take
a chance and help the Red Cross.
The sporting events were many
and varied. Footraces, sack-
races, and wheelbarrow races
were productive of much enjoyment to young and old,  compet
itors and spectators alike. The
pillow fight on a wooden horse
caused a good deal of amusement
to the onlookers, and the ladies'
naildrivjng contest provoked considerable competition.
The afternoon was rounded off,
by an al fresco supper, served
daintily by the ladies of the Red
The dance in the evening was
well attended, the music being
provided by Mrs. Reid.
Altogether the day was one
long to be remembered, and the
proceeds were gratifying in the
extreme. The handsome sum of
$522.45 was taken in all and the
deduction of necessary expenses
entailed left the Red Cross with
$438.45 in its treasury.
Card of Thanks
The Hazelton branch of the
Canadian Red Cross Society extends its heartiest thanks to the
many friends whose enthusiastic
assistance made the Dominion
day picnic such an unqualified
and unprecedented success.
Smithers People Here
A number of people came down
for the July lst celebration, most
of them making the trip by
automobile through the beautiful
route by the wagon road from the
Valley town. Among the visitors were Mr. and Mrs. Willcocks
and family, ,Mrs. Boyer, Mrs.
Barker, Mr. and Mrs. Mason
Adams, Miss E. Middleton, Miss

TheG. T. P. bridge at Telkwa
was the scene of a cowardly
attack which nearly ended in
fatality on Thursday night. Sam
Olsen, a returned soldier, who
was guarding the bridge, had
given shelter in his cabin to an
Indian for the night and coming
into the shack,during his patrols,
at two a.m. was surprised by
three quick shots from a revolver
held by the Indian, one of which
pierced his right hand, another
his right arm and a third which
grazed his scalp. He stumbled
outside and crawled his way to
Telkwa station, where Dr. Mclean
was summoned from Smithers.
Olsen was then sent down to
Hazelton Hospital. His condition
is not serious. The victim can
recall no motive or provocation
for the attack. The police.acting
with promptitude, are now after
the assailant. i THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, JULY 7, 1917

Saturday, July 7, 1917
No. 45
The provincial government has decided, after due deliberation, to
remove its offices to some point other than its present location
in Hazelton,ostensibly to be nearer the railroad for the general
convenience of the public. The decision did not come unexpectedly
to the people of Hazelton, but,though the government undoubtedly
had the interests of the district at heart in deciding to make a
change, no reason has been advanced why the buildings should be
transferred to Smithers.
The following appeared in the Vancouver Province of recent
date, in its editorial columns, following the decision of the cabinet,
and was evidently written by someone more or less cognizant of
conditions in this northern country:
Old Hazelton has had a history, but a brief item in the
Province yesterday would almost make it appear as if the glory
of the old-time trading post had departed. The provincial
government has decided to move its offices from the erstwhile
trading station and land boom town on the Skeena to the more
central location of Smithers, fifty miles to the east.
The loss of the government offices will be a sore blow both to
Old Hazelton and to the rival town of New Hazelton, some three
or four miles distant.
But a few years ago land companies offering lots in the two
towns were setting forth their claims that Hazelton���it all
depended in which townsite the company was interested ���would
shortly be the Chicago of the North. And now the government
will take away Us local headquarters. As in the case of Fairview
in the Similkameen, which may be expected shortly to lose the
government offices to Penticton, the pioneer frontier town must
give way to the latter-day bustling commercial center.
But just as with Fairview, Old Hazelton still has hopes of a
return of prosperity, and from the same source���not town lots
surveyed in thousand and boomed by promoters-- but the great
natural resources in the bowels of the earth.
Rocher de Boule mountain at Hazelton gives every indication
of providing some of the richest mining properties in British
Columbia. If it fulfills its promises it will make the Hazelton
district prosperous beyond the limit of any mere real estate
activity, and Old Hazelton will "come back."
Meanwhile  there is  no doubt that Smithers, as a growing
center in  the  rich  agricultural  district of the  Bulkley,   is an
excellent location for the government offices of Omineca.
But we would add that the Rocher de Boule section is only one
that  will  insure  the prosperity of the Hazelton district at no far
distant date.     Hazelton, as the northernmost town along the line
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,   is  the  nearest point to the
vast,   untapped treasure chest to the north���the Groundhog, the
ingineca, with their illimitable supplies of mineral  wealth,   which
are just waiting for the development they will surely get after the
war, when a great deal of money for investment will be  available.
And all are tributary to Hazelton.
Hazelton will  not die with  the  passing of the government
offices���her future is based upon too firm a foundation for that.
The Copper Situation
Evidence that a price comparable with that existing during
the past few years will be paid
for base metals in future contracts is abundant. Under such
conditions, the earnings of copper
mines will be continued just as
long as the mines will stand the
strain. There is some fear of
exhaustion in some juarters,
which will tend to tighten the
metal market. Copper is already
trending higher, and it is admitted that the needs of the Allies
in war business alone will exhaust
the available supply of metal for
1917, with many domestic consumers unable to get supplies.
The same conditions apply both
to zinc and lead. It may be
pointed out in this connection
that the stockholders of copper
companies are still being treated
generously, as indicated by the
dividends for May in the United
States and Canada,totalling $10,-
000,000, comparing with $6,000,-
000 in May last year. New dividend-payers are being steadily
added to the ranks, and many of
the younger mines will enter the
dividend ranks this year. In
this connection it may be pointed
out that today, because of the
exhaustion of the older mines
and the tremendous destruction
of copper produced in this coun
try, that the potential value of
every unmined copper deposit is
increasing. Directly the consumption of copper for war purposes ceases there is an army of
orders for new construction and
reconstruction to take the place
of war business. The requirements in this direction���business
that has heen sidetracked for the
war���are incalculable. Meager
reports that filter through from
various parts lead to the belief
that it will be many years before
the demand for copper sinks down
far enough below the supply to
warrant a reduction in the price
of the metal below 20 cents a
Wake Up, Canada!
With ten billion dollars annually in buying power being injected
into the industries of the United
States, the average business man
can hardly comprehend its significance and the effect it is sure
to have on the prospects of Canada in general and British Columbia in .particular.
Manufacturers in the United
States and Canada will be called
upon to keep their wheels going
to full capacity, while producers
of metals will be called upon to
make greater efforts than ever
to furnish the muscles of war.
This augurs so well for.the
production of copper, lead and
zinc that a bull market for many
months seems inevitable for metal
issues. This is particularly true
of those mines which have been
recently opened and are coming
into the productive class on a
moderate producing basis, and
whose operations are expanding.
Such properties have untold speculative possibilities. So far there
has been little discounting the
position these properties will
shortly occupy or any anticipation
of their enormous earning power.
British Columbia has hundreds
of good properties which only
await businesslike development
to place them in the dividend
class, yet so far the investors of
Canada have failed to grasp the
situation, and the greatest mineral area of the Dominion has
been and is being neglected,
because Canadian investors still
regard mining as a speculation,
while it is the cleanest and most
profitable of a'l business enterprises.
Unless there is a radical change
in this respect, Canadians will
one day awake and find that the
mineral resources of British Columbia are owned and controlled
by interests living to the south.
British Columbia is nothing if
not the greatest mineral country
on the continent.

means the addition of one person
