James B. Rowley came in this
week from the Eureka coal property, about thirty miles from
Hazelton, on the Babine trail,
Operations on the property, which
are being made under Mr. Rowley's direction, have heen unfortunately curtailed for some
time, bad weather and danger of
snowslides necessitating the lay-
ing-off of most of the crew and
the stoppage of operations until
more favorable conditions prevail. Mr. Rowley, who will return to the Eureka for a short
time, brought in a really excellent specimen of coal from the
property.
H. H. Little paid a  week-end

Frank McKinnon, Prominent Man
of the North, Passed Away
on Tuesday
One of Omineca district's foremost citizens has passed away in
hospital at Victoria, where he
had undergone an operation for
appendicitis, in the person of
Frank C. McKinnon.
Frank took a keen interest in
anything that meant development
and devoted his time entirely to
the study of the natural resources
of the district in which he had
lived for the past eight or ten
years. But perhaps his loss
will be most keenly felt in our
mining circles. He knew the
mining game and played it like a
man. He was connected with
every mining deal of importance
almost on Rocher de Boule hill,
and held an interest in the Delta and Highland Boy groups,
which he was later instrumental
in turning over to the circle of
Edmonton capitalists known as
the Delta Copper Co.
Frank McKinnon, we consider,
was a man who was bound to
have made his mark in this country, and his sudden call leaves a
blank in the Hazelton community.
Mr. McKinnon, who was born
in Prince Edwardjsland, was 42
years of age. He was married
eighteen months ago, and leave,
a widow in Vancouver. The funeral took place yesterday in
Vancouver.
Our sincere sympathy goes out
to his widow, mining partners
and friends.

FUEL AND FOOD.
Fuel and food are the two
li.isic necessities which, it lias
been said, will, in a large measure, ensure victory in the war
or the side which possesses the
greatest resources of these products. Therefore,any effort made
to increase the supply of these
staples is helping lo bring victory
by just thai amount.
The first shipment of coal from
Telkwa last week is thus doubly
to lie lauded, first, because it
marks the driving of (he thin
end of the wedge of progress,
and secondly because it will pave
the way towards helping to fill
lite vast shortage of fuel existent
today.
Without coal, industry ceases,
an example of which is shown by
the closing down of manufacturing plants in the U. S. by Garfield's "coal-less day" order.
Willi this realization, the commencement of the development
of our coal resources takes on an
added importance.
Regarding food, the possibilities
of its production in this region
are no whit less extensive than
those of coal. We have in this
vast norlhland areas of the finest
servative estimate Forty Billion feet of
commercial lumber. Containing some
of best land left in United States.

OTTAWA THE OMINECA MINER. SATURDAY. MARCH 16. 1918
LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR BARNARD
HAS SPECIAL PRAISE FOR PART
OF DISTRICT IN RAISING MONEY
Tha following letter  has  been!ence  would be that much money
received by S. H. Hoskins, chair-1 wasted.
man   of   the   Hazelton   District j    "T���   addition,    the   Patriotic
branch  of  the  Patriotic   Fund,   Fund js able.to, and does, render
personally signed by Lieutenant-
Governor Barnard:
"Dear Sir;���
great services to dependents,
many of whom are not capable of
looking after their own business
"Upon reviewing the records; interests. The fund also acts in
of contributions received through ' an advisory capacity for the mil-
the provincial branch of the Can-1 ilia department, in connection
adian Patriotic Fund, I have felt1 with the payment of separation
that  special   acknowledgment allowances, pensions, etc.     The
should be made to a number of
places in this province.
"Hazelton is a point which has
done extremtley well. I find
that the contributions to the end
of February amounted to the very
substantial sum of $9,630.5L
This, coming from a population
such as you have at Hazelton, is
of distinct credit to your committee '.ind the contributors. I
feel quite sure that the time will
come when every man who has
contributed a dollar towards that
splendid amount will feel that he
has been well repaid.
"The Patriotic Fund has not
only made it possible for many
men to enlist in order to serve
thfir country in this great war,
but it has been of vast assistance
to the federal government who
require all the resources they
can possibly raise for the active
prosecution of the war.
"Money raised through channels of this kind assists tremendously in conserving the country's
resources and conservation is the
crying need of the hour.
As has been frequently pointed
out, what the Canadian Patriotic
Fund is able to do for twelve
million dollars per annum, would
cost the government double that
amount.    Obviously,   the  differ-
organization is so complete, covering the entire Dominion, that
serious delays are eliminated and
information is readily obtained,
which, to government officials,
would be a most difficult and expensive operation.
"While thanking your committee and contributors in your town
for what they have done in the
past, I desire to take this opportunity of again appealing for a
continuation of the same generous support.
"So long as we are at war, it
will be necessary, if we are to
succeed, that every individual
shall do his or her utmost to assist the government and the
army and navy in the tremendous
undertakings in which they are
engaged for the libc- rty and freedom of the world.
"Yours very truly,
(signed)    "F. S. Barnard,
"Lieutenant-Governor

36 to 68 per

mileage
20 to 25 miles to a gallon of
gasoline is a frequent occurrence with the Ford car. One
man (name on request) reports
an average of 33 miles per gallon for 20,000 miles. Surely
this is a record that feu', if
any other makes of cars, ever
equalled.
It demonstrates the economy
of owning and driving a Ford.
You  can  average 1000 miles
more travel on Ford-size tires.
The saving on oil and repairs is proportionately large.    The
name   "Ford"  stands for lowest cost and greatest service.
