Big Crowd Going to Terrace
by Special Train to Attend
Conservative Picnic
HAZELTONJS. RUPERT
Local Baseball and Football Team*
Oppoie Coast Club* for Glory and
Trophies���Prince Rupert it Sending
a Large Crowd.
Labor Day will be a notable
occasion in this district. The
great feature will be the Conservative picnic at Terrace, to
which point Hazelton Conservative Association will run a special
train. About 150 Hazeltonians
are expected to join the excursion, while Prince Rupert will
bring over 400 to the celebration.
An interesting program of
speeches, games and sports has
been arranged. The principal
events will be baseball and football games between Hazelton and
Prince Rupent. The coast city
has never succeeded in defeating
t.he old town, and may be expected to line up strong teams on
Monday, in an attempt to carry
off the trophies which are offered
for the games.
Captain Sinclair announces the
following as the probable line-up
of the Tigers in the baseball
game: McMillan, ss; Sinclair,
3b; Kelly, If; Doc Rock, cf; Graham Rock, p; Macdonald, lb;
Finney, c; Bob Rock, 2b; Lynch,
Harris and Walker will be held
in ressrve.
In opposition to the Callies,
the Hazelton football club will
have the following men on the
field:
Middleton
Warne      Gammon (Capt.)
Frost Borland Harvey
Brewer Frost "Chet" Munro Johnston
Reserve���Johnson
The number of tickets for the
excursion is limited, as the railway company can only furnish
three cars for the Hazelton excursionists. Those who have not
already procured their tickets
should do so at once.
Shushanna Is Rich
But Small In Area
Vancouver, Aug. 29: - Dr. Cair-
nes, of the Canadian geological
survey, has returned from an examination of the Shushanna gold
field. He states that the gold-
bearing area appears to be small
but rich. It is the greatest stampede, he says, but not the greatest find since the Klondike rush.
Two thousand men are on the
ground, and creeks are staked
for ten miles, even to the mountain tops. There are five routes;
two through Alaska, and three
through Canadian territory. The
latter are the best.
All good ground was staked by
the first two hundred men in the
field. The same bedrock conditions prevail on the Canadian side
of the line, twenty-five miles
distant. It is quite probable that
gold will be found in the Yukon
section.
Dr. Brock, director oi the survey, said the whole country about
Shushanna was favorable for
prospecting. He would not be
surprised if some important discoveries were made in Northern
British Columbia and the Yukon
within the next two years.
A. Bassett, British Columbia
manager of the Hudson's Bay
Co., is visiting the company's
posts in this district.
The "Insane" Murderer
Sherbrooke, Que., Aug. 27:���
Thaw, the escaped murderer, is
still held in jail here. There
was a dramatic scene in court
today, when the prisoner's lawyers withdrew their habeas corpus proceedings, with the concurrence of Superior Judge
Globensky, notwithstanding the
opposition of attorneys representing the state of New York, who
sought to have Thaw released,
that the immigration authorities
might take charge of the case
and carry out their purpose of
deporting the criminal as a rejected immigrant. "Hooray for
the British Mag! Hooray for
Thaw!" shrieked men and women
who stood on chairs and waved
handkerchiefs, parasols, and hats
when the decision was announced.
The judge did not rebuke them.
NEW DISCOVERIES
OF OREJEPORTED
An interesting and probably
important find of mineral has
been made near the head of Babine lake, where an immense
lead of well-mineralized quartz
has been uncovered on the Independent group, located by T. E.
O'Connor, A. Maurice, and C.
Dedrickson. The locaters have
seven claims, and have done considerable work. They brought
out samples of the ore, which
they say averages 35 feet in
width and has been traced for
approximately 2500 feet. Assays
of specimens have given fair returns in gold and silver, and they
expect a favorable report from
tests which are now being made
of average samples. The ore is
concentrating.
Samples of nice-looking galena
ore from claims located on the
Skeena, twenty miles above Hazelton, have been brought in by
J. P. Thorkildson, who states
that a big dike, in which stringers of solid ore occur, has been
uncovered.
Local and District News Notes
A. E. Phillips came up from
Hardscrabble to spend a few days
in town. He reports excellent
showings of gray copper on St.
Croix and Leggett creeks, where
big leads have been uncovered.
Can't Come to B. C.
London, Aug. 27:���The efforts
of Canadian representatives to
have next year's meeting of the
Imperial defence committee held
in Vancouver have failed. The
committee will meet, as usual, in
London.
Ministers' Movements
Ottawa. Aug. 27: Hon. Martin Burrell and Hon. W. T. White
are on their way home from
England. The premier and Hon.
George E. Foster are busy with
departmental business.
Pleased With Mines
Seattle, Aug. 25:���Phil. Gillis
and Dr. J. R. E. Sievers of
Butte, Mont, relate tales of the
mineral wealth in the vicinity of
Hazelton that remind the old
timers of Bonanza days.
Mr. Gillis and Dr. Sievers are
old timers in the mining game.
Together with Dan J. Williams
they inspected the Rocher de
Boule mine, not far from Hazel-
I ton. Naturally reticent, Gillis
was loth to dicuss the Rocher de
I Boule property.
"We have great faith in the
country and the samples have
convinced the best engineers we
have been able to engage that
the mine is worth while," said
he.

Tigers Still Lead
In Baseball League
"Some ball game" was the
unanimous verdict on the last
contest between the Hazelton
Tigers and the New Hazelton
team. The local men won by a
score of 7 3, but they had to play
great ball to get the verdict. The
visitors introduced Johnnie Jennings, late of the Twilight league,
as their slab artist, and depended on their battery to win the
game. The new pitcher lived up
to his reputation, fanning nineteen of the local sluggers, but
the team work of the Tigers,
who were greatly strengthened
by the return of Graham Rock,
more than offset the excellent
work of the new twirler. Starting off with three runs in the
first innings, the Hazelton men
held the visitors safe throughout
the game, although they did not
make many hits.
Aside from the pitching of
Jennings, the feature of the
game was the great work of
Graham Rock, whose generalship
behind the bat was admirable,
while his steal home in the sixth
was the sensation of the game.
Ellis pitched right up to form,
allowing only seven hits.
Charlie O'Neill umpired in his
usual acceptable manner. He
was greatly taken with Jennings'
pitching.

RESIGNATION OF
HUERTAJEMANDED
Washington, Aug. 27:���In congress today President Wilson
personally read his long-delayed
message on the Mexican situation. It is three columns in
length, and in effect says that
the rule of Huerta in Mexico
must end. The position taken
by the United States government
is that there-shall be no armed
intervention, and that strict
neutrality shall be observed. The
exportation of arms to .Mexico
will be forbidden, and under no
circumstances will Americans be
partizans of either faction in
Mexico or umpire between the
contestants.
The president desires congress
to urge all Americans to leave
Mexico at once, and suggests that
assistance be given to those who
require it. Those who cannot
leave the republic will be watched by the Washington authorities,
and Mexicans responsible for any
suffering or loss to Americans
will be held to a definite and certain reckoning.
The United States will require
the immediate cessation of lighting, the arrangement of a definite
armistice, and an early and free
election. Huerta must bind himself not to be a candidate for Ihe
presidency. The friendly offices
of the Washington authorities
will be open to resumption at
any time.
Accompanying the president's
address was the Huerta government's reply rejecting the American proposals.
Nanaimo, Aug. 27:���Twenty-
five prisoners charged with participating in the recent disturbances have been committed for trial
on a charge of rioting. They
will be held in Victoria jail to
await arraignment at the assizes.
Seven cases have been withdrawn
by the prosecution, leaving J. T.
Place, M. L. A., and a large
number of others awaiting their
preliminary hearings. On the
long march from the jail to the
courthouse, friends of the prisoners threw fruit and cigars over
the bayonets of the soldiers to
the accused men. The court announced that a repetition of this
would not be permitted.
Nanaimo, Aug. 29:���Among
the prisoners committed for trial
yesterday was J. T. W. Place,
the socialist member of the legislature for Nanaimo. He is
charged with having in his possession a revolver stolen from a
police constable. The weapon
was found in Place's house. He
stated it had been given to him
and that he kept it, intending to
show it to the attorney-general
as an example of the arms
brought into the district.
The situation continues peaceful.
Nanaimo, Aug. 25: The Western Fuel Company's mine, to
which the city has owed much
of its prosperity, is being flooded
to extinguish the fire which has
been raging in the workings,
and which could not be checked
because of the strike. It is estimated that the mine cannot be
reopened for work within two
years, if the flooding is completed. The miners, it is said, are
losing a quarter of a million a
month as a consequence of the
closing of the various coal mines.
Murderer Hanged
Nanaimo, Aug. 28: - Henry
Wagner, known as "Flying
Dutchman," was hanged here
today for the murder of Constable Westaway, whom he killed
at Union Bay in April, when the
officer attempted to arrest him
for burglary.
Progress Club Excursion
Vancouver, Aug. 29: A party
of thirty business men will leave
here on September 8, under the
auspices of the Progress club,
for a visit to Hazelton and Smith-
era.
A Postal Innovation
Ottawa, Aug. 27: Postmaster-
general Pelletier has decided that
in future Canada is to have bilingual postcards, printed in
English and French. This is a
new departure in postal policy.
Paying Canada's Debts
Ottawa, Aug. 28:���The government loan of $80,000,000 which
matures on October 1 will be paid
off. This loan bears four per
cent, interest, being the last one
at that rate.
Kildare's New Charter
A Dominion charter has been
granted to the Kildare Mines,
Ltd., which owns the noted Kildare property on Slate creek, in
the Manson camp, and which recently purchased the adjoining
leases of the Otterson-Huderle
company. The company has a
capitalization of $1,000,000, and
is granted all the usual powers
given to a mining corporation.
The directors of the company,
which has its head office in Ottawa, are: W. G. Bronson, lumberman; W. J. Woods and Ernest
Linton, manufacturers; T. C.
Bate, merchant; J. I). Courtenay,
physician. All are well-known residents of the capital. George W.
Otterson, the hydraulic mining
engineer, who has been so prominently Identified with the renewal of activity in the Manson
district, is general manager. A
force of miners is engaged in the
development of the company's
properties, which promise rich
returns.
A Rumor Denied

reported that Prince Arthur of
Connaught would succeed his
father as governor-general of
Canada.  This is officially denied. THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, AUGUST 30, 1913

tion, and it behooves the mining men to see that every property is
represented in the display. The Hazelton board of trade is working
in conjunction with ths newly-formed mineowners' association, and
their efforts, backed by those most concerned, will result in the
exhibition at Prince Rupert of a display of ore which will easily
carry off the chief awards.
It is probable that the exhibit, after the close of the Prince
Rupert fair, will be placed in the permanent exhibition of the
Progress' Club, in Vancouver. The board of trade has engaged
space for a large display of o.vs and other products of this district,
and it appears to I e the general desire lhat the exhibit now in
course of preparation should b ��� included.
Every miner and prospector who has good ore should see that
specimens are included in the Prince Rupert display, not only for
the prizes his ore may win, but also to give visitors to the fair an
adequate idea of the immense mineral resources of this district.

The co-operation of the different governments of the world
with the Geological Congress
alone made the monumental report authoritative and possible.
The total cost of its preparation
would amount to half a million
dollars. The maps alone cost
nearly $20,000 to publish, while
the publication of the report it
is said will approximate $15,000
for 3,000 sets.
An estimate of the coal reserves of the world is given in the
summary of the mammoth three-
volume report presented at the
Geologists' Congress at Toronto
by Secretary R, W. Brock and
the special committee appointed
to study the resouces of the
world's coal supply.
The report shows that America
has the most coal of any of the
five continents. Of the dwindling visible supply of hard anthracite, however, Asia has far the
largest supply. Following is aj

how the world at large stands
for coal in the second decade of
the twentieth century. These
figures include totals for the
three classes of coal, figures for
each of which are given in the
report, the three classes comprising anthracite, bituminous
and sub-bituminous, brown coals
and lignites. The figures represent the number of million tons:

The report also gives interesting figures concerning the coal
production covering the period
since 1865 to 1910. Coal mining
figures were not available, however, for Australia, New Zealand,
South Africa, or Canada until
1895. The United States is the
greatest coal mining country,
producing over 445,810,000 tons.
Canada in 1910 produced 14,010,-
000 tons, about three times as
much as in 1895.
Great Britain produced 264,-
500,000 tons, and Germany, the
next producer, mined 221,980,000.
The next coal producing country
is France, with only 38,570,000
tons in 1910.
China has the bulk of the remaining hard coal, being credited
with 387,464,000.000 tons in reserve, ' and 607,523,000,000 of

Watch for the Big Opening Announcement
The Big Three of Central British Columbia
YEARS ago, when the main line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific was first located through central
British Columbia, we made a most careful and
systematic survey and investigation of this new
territory. Aided by engineers, surveyors and the
immense amount of data assembled, we were able
to locate the sites of the future large cities and
trade centers of this wonderful new country���Foi t
George, Hubert and New Hazelton. Fort George,
the first of these new cities promoted and developed by us, needs no introduction���it is known throughout the civilized world. Its success has been record-
breaking���it is sure to develop into one of the  big
cities or British Columbia.
Fort George conclusively demonstrated the accuracy of our judgment. Hubert, the second of these
new cities, will soon be placed on the market.
Back of the development and promotion of this new
city will be the same organization, the same management and thc same careful and systematic development, and a like amount of liberal advertising
that placed Fort George in the front rank of the
new cities of Western Canada.
FACTS
ABOUT
THE
NEW
CITY
OF
Hubert
HUBERT
The new city of Hubert is located in the heart of
the Bulkley Valley at its widest part. It is on the
main line of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, and
is the center of a large and proved agricultural
district, surrounded by an enormous field of bituminous coal, a delightful climate and sure market
for all products; three miles east of Aldermere;
townsite now being cleared and roadways opened.
It will have a substantial population from the start.
Watch for the big opening announcements. A

INTERIOR ORE FOR
PRINCERUPERT FAIR
Prince Rupert, Aug. 25: ���
Every assurance is being given
by the management of the Prince
Rupert Exhibition that the display of agricultural and horticultural products of the new
north will be on a worthy scale,
and that there will be active
competition from several districts to land the handsome sterling silver challenge cup donated
by M. M. Stephens for the grand
diatrict display of fruits, vegetables, grains and other products
of the field and orchard. This
handsome trophy stands fourteen
inches high and is in the nature
of a loving cup with artistic stag-
horn handles. It is to become
the property of the district winning the first prize two years in
succession, or at any three fairs.
To this prize is also added another
magnificent silver challenge cup,
18 inches high, presented by L.
Bullock-Webster, the hard-working secretary of the Northern
British Columbia Agricultural and
Industrial Association, under
whose auspices the fair is to be
held. The second cup is offered
for the best district collection of
vegetables and is to be competed
for on similar lines to Mr. Stephen's cup. These two trophies,
together with hundredsof dollars
of cash prizes, will .'doubtless
stimulate Partners' Institutes to
put forward their best efforts to
properly present the resources of
(heir respective localities.
A EIG EXHIBIT FOR
PRINCE RUPERT FAIR
It has been found advisable to
to forego the Bulkley Valley fair
this season. The large crops
have kept the farmers of the
district busy, while other citizens
who took an active part in the
promotion of last year's successful exhibition are all engaged in
furthering the development of
Smithers and the district generally. It has therefore been
decided that all exhibition efforts
for this year shall be concentrated on a large and representative
display of agricultural products
and ores for the Prince Rupert
fair, which takes place September 24 to 26.
A representative exhibit from
this district at the Rupert show
will undoubtedly attract a great
deal of favorable attention, and
should prove a means of bringing manv new settlers to join
those who are flocking into the
Bulkley Valley. -Review

Premier in London
London, Aug. 28,���Sir Richard
McBride, premier of British Columbia, is now in London. He is
giving his first attention to the
arrangements for the building of
the new offices for the western
province, on a fine site in Regent
street. Interviewed by a number of journals, he said that
British Columbia was behind the
Borden naval policy, as were
Canadians generally, and that it
would be carried through.
Geologists on the Way
Vancouver, Aug. 29: A party

Big Steamer Damaged
New York, Aug. 28:���The Imperator, the world's largest

injured. The steamer will sail
on Saturday, as scheduled, and
will make repairs at sea.
Toronto, Aug. 25:���From the
way Rt. Hon. R. L. Borden spoke

probability of an early session.
One Big Navy
Auckland, Aug. 23: -Welcomed
on his return from Great Britain,
Sir Joseph Ward was assured
that even his opponents had come
round to discredit the idea of a
small "baby" navy for New Zealand. In his speech he said he
hoped that the question of the
defense of the Empire would be
kept clear of party politics. In
his opinion the vast majority of
the people believed that the solidarity of the Empire meant the
solidarity of the British Navy.
There was only one thing that
could keep us secure, and that
was a navy so strong that no
combination would attempt to
attack it.
