General Manager of G. T. P.
Speaks Highly of District After Visit
On his return from a trip to
the end of steel, Morley Donaldson, general manager of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, told an interviewer that the scenery between Fraser Lake and the coast
would bring many tourists to this
district.
Mr, Donaldson and party had
been gone four days on the trip
and thoroughly enjoyed it. They
were charmed with the magnifi
cent scenery in endless variety
which unfolds itself in the 300
miles between the placid mountain lakes and the tide water.
"I consider it is the prettiest
stretch of scenery on the continent," said Mr. Donaldson, and
he predicts a tremendous tourist
traffic in the years to come.
The general manager's party
went out to the end of steel,
where track laying is still in progress. The grading is pretty
well completed on that section.
There is one heavy piece which
'will be finished about January 10,
when track laying will continue
to Mile 344. Mr. Donaldson expects the grading to be completed about the first of April and a
month later the tracks will probably be linked up. It will take
all summer, however, to get the
roadbed in shape for traffic. In
fact Mr. Donaldson does not anticipate that the company will
run any high class transcontinental trains before the beginning of 1915. If the traffic demands it they will put through a
limited service in the autumn.
There are only temporary brid-
'ges being put over the Fraser
and Nechaco rivers in order to
rush construction. These will
will have to be replaced by steel
bridges, and that work will take
some months. Mr. Donaldson
says there are now about 7000
men on construction work, but
this number will drop off automatically from now on.
Briton and German
Reach Agreement
London, Dec. 31:-Great Brit
ain and Germany have concluded
a comprehensive political agree-'
ment which will, it is believed,
go far toward the eradication of
all danger of war between the
two empires. Part of the agreement, it is understoodj'proyldes
i ' ^
for the joint purchase\of Portu-,
The upper portion of the district,
it is said, will be taken over by
Germany, and the lower part by
Great Britain. The sum of $100,-
000,000 will be paid to Portugal.
Lisbon, Jan. 1:���The report
that the African possessions of
Portugal have been acquired by
Great Britain and Germany is
denied here. It is semi-offiicially
stated that Portugal's African
territory is not for sale, though
it may soon be on the market.
Battle is Imminent
El Paso, Dec. 31:���A force of
five thousand rebels is attacking
the Mexican town of Ojinaga,
near the American border. The
town is practically the only
stronghold of the federals in the
north. Huerta is leading the
government troops in person. A
decisive battle seems imminent,
while the whole Mexican situation is nearing a crisis.

Hotel Northern Opening
The social event of New Years
was the dance given by It. J.
McDonell on Thursday evening,
to mark the opening of the big
Hotel Northern in New Hazelton.
A large crowd of Hazelton people
went over to the new town to
participate, and all enjoyed the
affair. The dance was held in
the Larkworthy building, a recherche supper being served in
the hotel. Music was furnished
by Teddy Quinn. The success of
the affair may be judged from
the fact that nearly all the' dancers remained on the floor until
after three o'clock.
Calumet, Mich., Dec. 29:���Yesterday was a sad day in the city
when the victims of the terrible
panic on Christmas Eve were
buried. The strikers bore the
coffins through the streets and as
their arms wearied with the load
and their feet tired from the
slippery roads their comrades relieved them of their burden.
Thousands lined the streets.
With men in tears and women
sobbing openly, the scene was
one of deep tragedy. Fifty
miners, mostly Englishmen from
Cornwall, chanted hymns as the
procession passed.
The whole country is in great
excitement over the recent happenings. A special grand jury
has been called to consider the

Saturday from Los Angeles,

for the winter. He will leave
shortly for Tacla lake, where he

for the sale of thc property to
American capitalists are in progress.
R. E. Allen, forester for this
district, is expected to return
from New Denver about the
fifteenth, accompanied by Mrs.
Allen and their children. They
will reside in Hazelton in future.
Bert Schooling and Bert Mar-
kell returned yesterday from 20-
Mile, having freighted the construction outfit from Smithers
to that point, where it was taken
in charge by teamsters from the
other end.
" Remarkable improvements
have been effected on many of
the Kispiox ranches," says Road
Superintendent Carr, who recently visited the Kispiox Valley. A largely increased appropriation for road work in that
district has been recommended.
The hockey team was out for
practice last night. Some of the
recruits made a good showing,
and there is every prospect
that Hazelton will have a good
chance to retain the championship, notwithstanding the absence of several of last season's
stars.
The climax of the Indian potlatch which ha ��� been in progress
for some lime was reached on
Thursday evening, when the natives of the Hazelton village gave
an exhibition of their potlatch
rites in the big hall on the reserve. Whites were invited,
and a large crowd attended. The
various shows and dances proved
highly entertaining, while the
Indian band, in popularselections,
made a good impression.

Captain Bonser Joins
The Great Majority
Vancouver, Dec. 27:��� Hundreds of pioneers, especially those
acquainted along the northern
coast, will regret to learn of the
death of Captain J. H. Bonser,
aged 50, who passed away last
night at his home at Portland,
Ore. Captain Bonser was the
first shipmaster to navigate the
Upper Skeena River and the Upper Fraser and no man was bet
ter known or more highly respected in the north than he. The
funeral will be held at Portland.
The deceased leaves a wife and a
daughter, Mrs. Harry Godfrey
of Vancouver.
Captain Bonser was popular
with old-timers in Hazelton. He
came on the Skeena in 1892,
taking command of the first stern-
wheel steamer on the river, the
Hudson's Bay steamer Caledonia,
which had reached Hazelton the
previous year. He continued \\
charge of the Caledonia until
1900, when he took command ol
the Monte Christo, of which hi
was part owner. Later he commanded the Pheasant. He went
to the Fraser river in 1907, returning in 1911 to take over thi
Inlander, which was his lasi
command. His death will be re
gretted by many throughout thit-
district.

London Times on B. C.
London, Dec. 31.���The London
Times pictures a bright future
for British Columbia in its special
Panama Canal number, which
deals comprehensively with every
part of the Pacific Province. The
Times calls Vancouver a "miraculous city" and believes a large
share of the immigration which
now goes to the prairie provinces
will be diverted to British Columbia, while a huge volume of
grain will find an outlet through
the Pacific ports.
A
Premier and  Ministers   Review Progress of B. C.
During the Year
Victoria, Jan. 1:���The premiers
of all the provinces, in their New
Year messages, sound a note of
optimism, predicting record prosperity for 1914. Premier McBride, in a two-column review of
the year, deals with every phase
of development in British Columbia. He emphasizes the work of
railroad building, the greatest in
any of the provinces. The Grand
Trunk Pacific will be connected
in May, providing a new steel
highway from the Atlantic to the
Pacific. On the Pacific Great
Eastern five thousand men are
working, and the first passenger
train on the road ran today from
Vancouver to Dundrave, eight
miles out. The premier reviews
the many activities on the Island
und Mainland, declaring his confidence that the coming year will
bring even greater things.
Hon. Thos. Taylor, minister of
railways, says, in the course of
an extended review of the year's
work, that the I anadian Northern expended $30,000,000 on construction in British Columbia last
year.
The other cabinet ministers
also gave reviews of their various
departments. Hon. W. R. Ross
reported that the forest revenue
for the year had exceeded all records, reaching a total of nearly
$3,000,000. During the year one
million acres of land had been
surveyed, eight hundred thousand
acres being in advance of settlement.
The year's expenditure on public works was approximately ten
million dollars.
The total mineral production of
the province for the year will be
$29,500,000, which is two and a
half millions less than the production of the previous year, the
falling-off being accounted for
largely by the prolonged inactivity resulting from the coal strike.
Hospital Fund Grows
Dr. Wrinch has met with encouraging success in his campaign for funds to equip the
Hospital with X-ray apparatus
and electric lights, The Dominion and provincial governments
have each appropriated $1500 in
aid of the fund, while other sub-
criptions are already nearly sufficient to guarantee the raising
of the $7,000 required. The best
equipment possible will be obtained, incluuing a modern ambulance. Dr. Wrinch and the
advisory board of the Hospital
request those who have not yet
taken the opportunity to assist
in this work to advise the modi-
cal superintendent of the amounts
they are willing to subscribe.

The Ominecn Miner hoi Ihe largest bona fide circulation of any newspaper in the
North* rn Interior of British Columbia.
It has been frequently demonstrated that a section of the
opposition press is willing to stoop to any means in its unavailing
efforts to discredit the provincial government. It is a commentary
on the weakness of the Liberal cause that, in the absence of effective arguments, opposition newspapers must resort to misrepresentation and falsehood as a basis for their tirades against the McBride
administration. The Vancouver Sun, perhaps the leading offender
in British Columbia agains.t journalistic decency and political fairness is a glaring example. M;iny startling headlines and much verbi-
a je are regularly devoted bv the Sun to the alleged shortcomings of
the government, and it does not appear necessary that truth should
have any place in its attacks.    For instance:
In a recent issue, the Sun accuses the provincial government
of doing everything possible to harass the settler. In support of
t lis statement, the recent sale of lands in this district for delinquent taxes is cited, and the Sun says:
In. the list were seventy-six properties, all farms, not less
than three-quarters of them being occupied by settlers and
very few, if any, more than a year in arrears of taxes, most of
them in fact only in arrears since last January. The sale was
advertised on September 13 to take place a month hence. So
that they were actually only a little over seven months in arrears when the government seized the farms and auctioned
them off. The total arrears amounted to about $5,600, a little
over an average of $75.00 apiece, and each farmer is taxed
$2.00 costs, interest at 7 per cent on the arrears and the costs
of the sale.
If there are no bids on a farm the settler has the right to
redeem it in two years, while if there are bids he has only
a year in which to save his home. If the land sells for more
than the amount of the taxes the government keeps the surplus.
Contrast the above statement with the facts, which are these:
Of thc seventy-five parcels of land advertised for sale, only six
were pre-emptions. Of these, four had been sold by the locators,
while not one of the owners ofthe seventy-five lou��* was in occupation of his land at the time of advertisement and sale. The taxes
on every lot advertised were unpaid for over twenty months.
The regular government rate of interest, six per cent, was charged
against the arrearages, and not seven per cent, while no costs of
s lie were charged beyond the advertising charge of two dollars.
11 any case, the owner of land sold for taxes has two years in
which to redeem his property, which he may do by paying the taxes to the government and twelve per cent, interest on the money
paid by the purchaser, which, with the principal, is returned to the
latter by the province.
Although the truth is easily ascertainable, the Sun pretends
fiat speculators and settlers are not treated alike. If its editor
were at all familiar with the laws of the province, he would know
that, while all alienated lands are subject to taxation, only crown-
granted lands may be sold for taxes. If he took the trouble to investigate, he would find that people who hold land as an investment or for speculation are required to pay their taxes or bear the
consequences. We believe the number of bona fide settlers on the
delinquent tax lists of the province is so small as to be negligible,
as investigation proves it to be in this district.

Records from Glengarry
Among the records collected
by the dairy division, Ottawa.
this season, are some from Glengarry that show the average
yield of 155 cows to be 4,5<:0
pounds of milk, 3.5 test, If9
pounds of fat. Included in that
is the yield of one herd of 9
cows including one three-year-old
that averaged 6,209 pounds of
milk, 3.3 test, 205 pounds of fat.
It will be noticed that this herd
produced 1,669 of milk and 46
pounds of fat above the average
of the 155 cows. Another herd
averaged 220 pounds of fat, or 61
pounds per cow above the average; with fat reckoned at thirty
cents per pound, this is equivalent to over eighteen dollars per
cow, indicative of the thousands
of dollars extra that might be
coming into a district if the cows
were keyed up to a higher producing level.
One noticeable feature of this
section is the large number of
poor yields from two and three
year olds. But it is not only the
heifers that are responsible for
lowering the average yield.
There are cows from six to ten
years old that gave only 2,800
pounds of milk and 102 pounds
of fat as compared with that average of 4,540 pounds of milk and
159 pounds of fat.
So that instead of a contrast
of only eighteen dollars, it is
found that there is an actual
difference of over forty one dollars in the cash received from
mature cows in the same period.
This is surely a statement strong
enough to cause every dairyman
to examine closely into the performance of each cow he keeps.
Milk records are easily kept and
a composite sample from each
tenth day's milk can be tested
once a month. Is not this worth
doing?

Information for Settlers
The Department of Lands has
issued another valuable pamphlet which adds to the informa-
t'on available for intending set-
ters in British Columbia. The
new book deals with the Fort
Gsorge land and recording division and forms the second of the
series being issued by Hon. William R. Ross, Minister of Lands.
The pamphlet should aid those
seeking knowledge regarding the
territory contiguous to the new
northern railroad as it deals
with the Skeena land recording
district embracing the Queen
Charlotte Islands, the Naas Valley and other portions of that
district, to which the attention
of settlers has been attracted.
The territory dealt with in the
pamphlet issued yesterday covers
a wide area, for the Fort George
land district is traversed across
more than five parallels of longitude by the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway, with which the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway, which
follows the Fraser Valley northward, connects at Fort George,
and the Canadian Northern Railway, which enters the district
from the East at the Yellowhead
pass in the Rockies, parallels the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway to
Tete Jaune Cache, where it turns
southward down tne McLennan
valley toward the North Thomson river, which it follows to
Kamloops. The western boundary of the di i'ict follows the
Telegraph trail from Blackwater
northwesterly, and joins the Ne-
chako, at the 124th parallel, and
north of the river it follows the
height of land east of the Stuart
valley until it again follows the
124th parallel. The eastern border follows the Rockies, the
boundary of the province. The
office of the government agent,
to whom application for pre-emptions must be made, is at Fort
George.
Pre-emptors' maps No. 1 Fort
George sheet, No. 2 Neebako
sheet and No. 3 Stuart Lake
sheet, cover much of the area
dealt with in the pamphlet, which
will no doubt be of great value
to those interested in the northern district of this province.

Government engineers state
that in four years the Columbia
river will be made navigable
from Revelstoke to the Pacific
coast.
Altogether 125,000,000 bushels
of grain were handled in Port
Arthur and Fort William between
Sept. 1 and Dec. 5, when navigation closed.
Only 44 lynchings, known to
be such beyond doubt, have occurred in the United States during the year 1913. This is the
lowest number on record.
There has been a stampede to
Scott creek, in the Chisana district. Over two hundred claims
had been staked when the first
report was sent out.
The fishing steamer G. R.
Hughes was completely wrecked
on Hope Island, while on her
maiden trip. The G. T. P. steamer Henriette picked up the crew,

THE "UP-TO-DATE" DRUG STORES
The deaths from industrial accidents throughout Canada last
year numbered no less than 1220
workmen, while 5780 workmen
received serious injuries. Thus
7000 workers in Canada met fatal
or serious accidents.
Another brutal murder has
been committed at Fort George.
Harry Porter, a young Englishman, was clubbed to death and
his pockets rifled. Robbery was
apparently the motive. There is
no clue to the perpetrators of the
deed.
The Canadian government has
contracted for the construction
of what will be the largest telescope in the world. The tube
will be seven feet in diameter,
while the principal lens will be
seventy-three inches in diameter,
ten inches thick, and will weigh
two tons. The entire apparatus
will weigh fifty tons.
The annual report of the fisheries department shows that
British Columbia easily leads the
p -ovinces in the value o!" its fishing industry. The total market
value of the fisheries of the prov
ince for last year was $14,455,488.
This is an increase of $778,363
over the total of the preceding
year and establishes a new record.
According to Dr. L. S. Sugden,
who has spent the past fifteen
years in the Yukon, and has
travelled extensively during that
period through the north, the
Canadian route via the White
Pass and Yukon railway to White
Horse and the Kluane trail, or the
White river, is the only practical
way of getting into the Chisana
gold diggings.
New Steamship Line*
Two important new lines of
steam-ships are to be placed in
service out of Vancouver early in
the new year. The Merchants'
and Shippers' Steamship Company of San Francisco will place
some big steamers in commission
between Vancouver, Puget Sound
and Australian ports. Three
new 100,000-ton boats will be
provided. A new Japanese line
is building two 16,000-ton steamships for trans-Pacific business
but pending their completion it
is intended to place some smaller
steamers on the Vancouver run.
It is expected by the Japanese
that they will obtain a share of
the silk business now handled by
Canadian Pacific liners.
It is estimated that Canada's
fur will be worth approximately
$2,000,000 this season.

Montreal, Dec. 29: A water
famine has resulted from the
collapse of the waterworks conduit, with very serious results.
Factories and railway shops are
closed, throwing thousands of
workers out of employment.
A fire which started at St.
Hubert and Ontario streets this
afternoon destroyed an entire
block of stores and houses, the
firemen being utterly helpless to
prevent its spread. Only the
chemical engines were fn commission. The damage exceeds
$500,000.
Montreal, Dec. 30: The second
big conflagration since the waterworks breakdown occurred today. Buildings in the business
district valued at $300,000 were
destroyed.
An investigation of the water
failure has been ordered.
