District ���Activity Among Miners of
Hudson Bay Mountain
There is a strong probability
that work will be resumed on the
Silver Cup, the Nine-mile mining
property which first attracted
attention to the Hazelton camp.
Owing to lack of transportation
facilities, but little has been done
on the property for some time;
but the principal owners ere understood to have decided upon
the immediate development of
the property. As is generally
known, the Silver Cup has excellent showings of very high-
grade silver-lead ore. On Saturday Duke Harris accompanied 1).
McLeod, one of the Cup owners,
on a visit to the property, to outline a plan of development. Both
were pleased with the showing
in number two tunnel, there being
sixteen inches of excellent ore in
the face. Good ore is also to be
seen in other workings.
Among the experienced mining
men who are looking over the
district this season is A. Lougheed, who has seen many western
mining camps and believes Hazelton will rank with the best of
them. The other day he returned
from a visit to the working properties on Rocher de Boule
mountain, and spoke enthusiastically of the showings of ore on
the Highland Boy, Rocher de
Boule, Ohio group, and Copper
Hill property. On the first-
named property Mr. Jennings
has a six-foot vein, of which at
least three feet are solid chal-
copyrite ore. Mr. Lougheed believes these and other groups on
the Rocher de Boule are capable
of producing a large tonnage of
pay ore. He praises the work o f
Superintendent Jennings on the

government is building for the

twelve miles of  hydraulic placer
Our Pioneer Clergyman
For twenty-seven years Rev.
John Field has been in
charge of St. Peter's Anglican
church at Hazelton. In that time
he has seen many people come
and go, and has witnessed the
growth of Hazelton from an outpost of civilization to one of the
important towns of Northern
British Columbia. Known and
esteemed by all for the kindly
gentleman that he is, Mr. Field
will be missed when he leaves at
the end of the month for a prolonged visit to England. Mrs.
Field, who has always taken a
happy part in the Women's Auxiliary and other activities of the
ladies, will accompany him.
One of Mr. Field's reminiscences is his introduction to James
May, who was the first white
man to greet him as he stepped
out of his canoe on his arrival at
Hazelton. Mr. May is still here,
the only survivor of the little
band of pioneers of twenty-sev.en
years ago.
BORDEN WILL CARRY
OUTJNAVAL POLICY
Ottawa. July 17:���It is now
considered unlikely that the house
of commons will reassemble before January. Hon. R. L. Borden is said to be negotiating with
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy. president of the C. P. R., in connection with the financing of the
naval plan. Mr. Borden and Sir
Thomas, with Hon. W. T. White,
are in London. The premier is
determined to make good the
government'soffer of three dreadnoughts to the Imperial navy.
London July 17: Canada's
naval iiuestion is being discussed
with delicacy in parliament, for
fear of arousing certain Canadian
susceptibilities. Hon. Winston
Churchill today announced that
the admiralty is preparing to receive tenders for the building of
the three dreadnoughts Canada
was to provide. The battleships
will be  completed   during   the
( winter of 1915-6.
Great  naval   manoeuvres   are
, being planned   for an early date
j by Germany, as a test of her
maritime  power.    British  naval

CHAMBER OE MINES
WANTSORE SAMPLES
In a letter to The Minsr,
Secretary F. S. Pilling, of the
Vancouver Chamber of Mines,
asks the mining men of this district to avail themselves of the
advantages offered by the Chamber, by sending a representative
collection of ores and coal from
this district.    Mr. Pilling says:
"As Hazelton is certain to loom
large on the mining horizon during the next few years, and will
take to herself a large share of
jthe mining activity which is beginning to advance in a wave in
this province, I hope it is not too
much to ask of the men in your
district to see to it that a good
exhibit of your minerals is put
on view here.

London, July 18:���It is believed the Roumanian army will enter Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria,
late today (Friday). The Servian forces are reported victorious
in a battle fought yesterday near
Bosilijrad, from which town the
Bulgarians were ousted. King
Ferdinand seeks peace, in which
the powers are trying to aid.
The allied enemies of Bulgaria
itill insist on proceeding with
the war.
King Cnnstantine, of Greece,
has furnished the press with details of frightful atrocities by
Bulgars, who have pillaged many
cities, slaughtering defenceless
women and children.
London, July 15: -The main
body of the Turkish army is advancing by forced marches from
Catalja to Bulair in the attempt
to recapture Adrianople and
Thrace.
The Bulgars, being close
pressed by the Greeks near Seres,
sacked and burned down the
town, cremating alive, hacking
to pieces and crucifying all the
people without quarter with the
exception of some leading officials, whom they plundered and
then curried off for ransom. The
Greeks fell upon the Bulgars as
they were retreating after the
massacre, and the retreat became
a horrible rout, many being killed
and wounded.

Saloniki, July 15:���The sacking
and burning of the town of Seres
by the defeated Bulgarian army
and the accompanying outrages
on women and atrocities on men
were fully confirmed today in a
despatch from a well-known
Greek correspondent.
The retreating Bulgarian soldiers, he telegraphed, opened a
cannonade with four field guns
from a hill above the town on
Friday. At the same time bands
of Bulgarian soldiers, led by their
officers, scoured the streets, first
pillaging the stores and houses
and then drenching them with
petroleum and setting them a-
light until the greater part of
the town was blazing. Even the
foreign consulates in Seres were
not spared, according to the correspondent. The Austro-Hun-
garian consul's offices were plundered and burned, Vice-Consul
Zlatkob carried off by the
marauders, but subsequently ransomed. The Italian consulate
also was sacked, but the vice-
consul boughtoff the incendiaries.

Hazelton is still headquarters for Omineca district.
For the first time in the history of B.C. a complete estimate
of the forest wealth of British
Columbia is to be made. The
compilation of data, a map and
a general report on the timber
resources of the entire province
will be carried out by the joint
efforts of the Forestry Department of the Provincial government and the Canadian Commission on conservation. All the
information already in the hands
of the Forestry branch will be
correlated. The blank spaces in
the province that is those that
have not been as yet surveyed
for their timber ��� will be
located to different parties sent
out jointly
vince will be available, and thus
something like an accurate idea
of the value of this immense resource will be made known.
The mass of information to be
collected will be of the very
highest value not only to British
Columbia and Canada, but to the
world at large. At present it is
roughly estimated that this province contains more than half of
the merchantable timber in the
Dominion, and that from a forest
standpoint it is the wealthiest
tract of country on the face of
the globe. It will soon be possible to verify this general belief
by accurate figures and tabled
information. The new data will

BULKLEY VALLEY FARM LANDS
FOR SALE
'7^HESE LANDS are located close to the main line of
V-/ the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, which is being
constructed through the heart of the Bulkley Valley, one
of the best farming districts in British Columbia.
Trains are now running to a point within 3,r> miles of Telkwa, and
there are good roads from the end of steel to all parts of the country.
The Bulkley Valley is an ideal dairying and mixed farming district,
with a market for all kinds of farm produce.

There was but little enthusiasm
in London over the re-passage of
the home rule bill. The house
of lords will again refuse to agree
to the measure, and Ulster remains unreconciled. Outside
government circles the Liberals
declare it is unthinkable that a
campaign of coercion can be
started against Ulster. Some
believe that if home rule for
Ireland becomes effective it will
result in the formation of legislatures for Scotland, Wales, and
even for England, under a predominant parliament at Westminster.

Recent development work on
the B. C. Anthracite properties
in Groundhog has disclosed a
number of new showings of
splendid coal, says Amos God
frey, who has charge of the
company's field operations. On
Telfer creek, under eighteen
inches of "surface," a four-foot
seam of clean anthracite was
discovered, while fine showings
have been uncovered on Jackson
creek and at other points. These
exposures have not yet been
correlated, so that the number of
seams is not definitely known.
Mr. Godfrey returned on Saturday from a brief trip to Vancouver, and on Thursday left with a
large pack train carrying supplies
for his company's camps. Another pack train will be sent in
shortly, with provisions for winter work. Every time he goes
in to Groundhog, Mr. Godfrey
says, he has more confidence in
the future of the big coal field.
On the present trip he is accompanied by his son, John D., and
Rev. J. H. Howe, of Nanaimo,
who is taking a trip for his health.
The redoubtable Bill Sweeney is
cargodore for the outfit.
The mining men of Hudson
Bay mountain are busily engaged
in developing their claims, and
are showing up a great deal of
excellent ore. The most impor-j
tant work at present under way
Mr. Hasebrink staled that his
time in Hazelton was too brief to
allow him to give the attention
to the mining properties of the|
camp which they deserveo
but a superficial observation had
convinced him that the district
would take high rank as a prospective mining field. He expects to examine some of the
nearby mining properties on his
return, about the end of Septem-
ter. A. E. Falconer and Hunter
Corner will (ravel to the coalfield with Mr. Hasebrink.
