TIGERS BEAT
Hazelton Ballplayers WinTwo
Saturday Games ��� Large
Crowds Attend Exhibition
The Tigers went to the coast
last week and took the measure
of the Rupert balltossers, winning two games out of three in
an exhibition series. As noted
in our last issue, the first game,
on Friday evening, went to
Prince Rupert by a score of 7-6.
It was a fine exhibition, and was
witnessed by a large crowd. Sinclair pitched for Hazelton.
In the second game Graham
Rock pitched for the champions,
Taylor having arrived to catch.
The Tigers' captain held the
home team safe throughout the
game, allowing but six hits, and
striking out nineteen. Hazelton
batted out 21 runs, against three
for Prince Rupert.
The third game, on Saturday
evening, drew the largest crowd
of the series, and was a regular
slugging match. Doc Rock pitched for Hazelton, and the visitors
got a big lead early in the game.
The Rupert men put up a game
fight, but could not overtake the
champions. The score was 17-14.
The weather was good and the
average attendance was over one
thousand.
On Sunday, W. Wright, Bud
Corley and Geo. Sweet entertained the visitors on a launch trip
around Kaien Island. These and
other Rupert people gave the
Tigers a good time, and the boys
enjoyed the trip to the utmost.

ORE EXHIBIT FOB FRISCO FAIR
A collection of ores representative of the mines mid prospects
of this district is to be included
in the mineral exhibit which the
Dominion government will send
to the Panama exposition at San
Francisco next year. The Victoria authorities are co-operating
with the federal commission in
the matter, and have attached
Wm. Thomlinson,' of the provincial service, to the Dominion exhibition commission, as mineral
collector for British Columbia.
Mr. Thomlinson has spent the
week in Hazelton, and will leave
this evening for Smithers and
Telkwa. On his return he will
spend a day or two at Skeena
Crossing. To The Miner he
said:
"Mining men and prospectors
are taking a keen interest in the
exhibit, and I am confident this
district will be represented by
one of the finest collections of
ores in the exposition.     From
what I have seen ofthe minerals
of the district, I have formed a
high opinion of its mineral resources, and have no doubt the
display of your ores which will
be made at the fair will result in
benefitting the province and district." -    .
Mr. Thomlinson accepts three
classes of specimens. For the
exposition, he desires typical
samples, in size about 6x8x5 inches, or bench samples, which
may run from 100 pounds upwards. For the provincial government collection smaller samples will be acceptable. Every
sample should be accompanied
by full data.
The government will pay
freight charges on all samples
accepted. Government Agent
Hoskins is supplied with shipping cards, and arrangements
will also be made for the handling of samples at Smithers. All
samples should be brought in
within six weeks.
Will Step Down When
Peace is Declared
Niagara Falls, Ont,, June 6:-
No strings are attached to General Huerta's promise to resign
the Mexican presidency as soon
as his country is "politically pacified." His delegates to the mediation conference took occasion
tod;;y to say publicly that he
does not intend to hide behind
any technicalities.
A statement issued by Mr. Ra-
basa, the ranking member of the
Huerta delegation, tonight says
of Huerta's offer to withdraw:
"The object in view is peace.
The condition is that that object
shall have been achieved. If an
agreement ensures that end, the
condition is as well fulfilled by
it as by any other means."
The American delegates met
today with the mediators, but
consideration was only given to
questions that arose before the
matter of Constitutional participation became the important issue. It is said that some progress
was made.
PROPOSED NEW ALIEN LAW
Ottawa, June 8:- A bill to a
mend the Immigration.Act and
which proposes to exclude from
Canada all Asiatics south of the
fiftieth parallel of latitude was
introduced in the House of Commons this morning by H. H.
Stevens, member for Vancouver.
The fiftieth parallel of latitude
north is nearly the northern
boundary of the Chinese Republic, so that Russia in Asia would
be excluded from the operation
of the proposed amendment. Japan would be exempt, as there
is an agreement between Canada
and the Island Empire with regard to immigration at the present time. It would mean the
total exclusion of immigrants
from China, India, the Malay
States, Persia and Turkey in
Asia. It is understood that the
Chinese Government is quite
willing to enter into an arrangement similar to that with Japan,
and if this amendment were
passed it might open the way
for negotiations with India alom>
the same lines, thus solving this
vexatious problem.
Mr. Stevens, in introducing
the bill, pointed out that Canada
had had great deal of difficulty
for years dealing with the prob
lem of Asiatic immigration. Al
present there were three methods
in vogue. First, there was immigration with Japan, this being
controlled by an arrangement between the two countries. Second, there was Chinese immigration. There was a head tax on
Chinese of $500. Third, the
Hindu immigration was controlled
by means of a clause in the act
which declared that immigrants
must come by direct route from
their native land.
Mr. Stevens said for some time
this last method had fairly successfully controlled immigration
from India. However, there was
much dissatifaction. It was re
cognized as a temporary arrangement. There was a strong demand from British Columbia that
SUFFRAGETTE
Militants Perpetrate Serious
Outrages���General Feeling
Of Indignation
London, June 12:���A suffragette bomb exploded in Westminster Abbey today.
London, June 8:���Another demonstration by a militant suffragette in the presence of King
George and Queen Mary was
carried out at the international
horse show at Olympia today.
Their Majesties had hardly taken
their seats when a young woman
rose in the stalls opposite and in
a shrill voice screamed denunciations of the forcible feeding of
suffragette prisoners. The police
pounced upon her immediately,
but the woman fought wildly
and her ejectment from the
building was effected only after
a fierce struggle.
Later in the day two women
at opposite ends of the arena
harangued the royal box and
made appeals to the King to stop
forcible feeding. Angry shouts
were raised by the crowd as the
suffragettes were ejected.
"No peace for King George or
Queen Mary" is the latest order
uiiven out by the headquarters
staff of the militant suffragettes:
London, June 8: -Recent discourtesies shown by militants to
the King, and the burning down
of many churches have inflamed
public opinion to a remarkable
degree. People have been still
further incensed by what is regarded as the well-grounded belief that much of the work
of destruction is done by hired
hands, well paid out of the bulging coffers of the Women's Social
and Political union. Cases have
been learned of women leaving
other employment to join the
militants, not from love of the
cause, but because the pay ia
better.
London, June 9: -It is reported
the government intends to introduce legislation to indemnify
prison authorities against the
legal results which follow from
letting women die of starvation
while in prison.
the government should take some
definite and final action. Objections, he said, to exclusion were
based on the desire not to offer
any offence to the people of other
countries. In this sentiment he
concurred, but it had recently
been demonstrated that is was
necessary to choose between the
lesser of the two evils. They
would have to decide whether
they were to cause offence to
these people or admit immigrants
unrestricted to the shores of
Canada. There were, in addition,
imperial considerations. Mr.
Stevens said he held the opinion
that Canada or any of the overseas Dominions should have the
right to control immigration to
its shores.

Rather than introduce contentious legislation in the closing
days of the session, (he federal government has postponed action
on redistribution until next session. The committee on redistribution, on which the opposition was well represented, had agreed
upon plans for all constiuencies except one in Eastern Ontario, and
many Liberals, realizing that they had been treated more than
fairly, made strenuous efforts to have the Liberals on the commit-

It takes money to buy assay
certificates, and if there is any
one thing more than another
which the prospector lacks, it is
cash. If he be fortunate enough
to have a steady job during the
winter, he can, by economy save
enough money to provide himself with food, clothing, tools,
transportation and other equipment necessary for his summer's
work, but that is about his limit.
If he be diligent and observing
he will while exploring a new
district, encounter many forms
of mineral of more or less value,
and it is reasonable to assume
that during his season's operations he will have picked up
forty to fifty samples of mineralized material which invite investigation, the greater number
of which he regretfully throws
aside, because unable to meet
the cost of assaying.
Fifty samples tested at the
going rates in this part of the
world would cost him at least
one hundred and possibly two
hundred dollars, thus entailing
an expensewhich he cannot meet,
and accordingly he gives serious
consideration only to the few
commoner forms of ore with
which he is familiar, and passes
up many of far greater importance and value. The only remedy for this great handicap to the
miner and through him to the
mining industry as a whole, is a
government assay office, which
will test ore samples free of
charge or at a nominal cost.

Another Working Property
(From The Chalcopyrite) ,
A lease was taken by Rod Mc-
Crimmon on the Black Prince
Group adjoining the Silver Standard, on Glen mountain, and work
commenced on the old Black
Prince tunnel last Monday. Mr.
McCrimmon was formerly in
charge of the work on this tunnel
for the Silver Standard people
when they first started to open
up their property from the Black
Prince or Two mile side of the
hill and has always thought well
of the chances for opening up a
good body of ore through this
tunnel. Ore in small stringers
or fractures was encountered in
this tunnel before it was abandoned in favor of the shafts on ''
the Standard, and altogether it
looked very promising. The
terms of the lease are not given
at present. With the miners
now being put on by Mr. McCrimmon and the increased force
at the Standard, Glen mountain
will be a pretty busy little hill
during the summer. The wagon
road is about completed from the

J I" matter not generally
yjL, known or fully appreciated with regard to commercial printing is the (ad that
ftyle, display (by which is
meant typographical arrangement) and type-faces are subject to change, as in the case
of clothing and other fashions.
���fl Modern printing shows a
mailced tendency towards the
neat and plain in display with a
liberal use of margin, as opposed to the old-style methods of
coarse, overcrowded and over-
ornamental composition. Not
every printer can give you the
better class of work. It is,
therefore, to your interest to see
that your printing is done at
the mosl fully equipped commercial printing plant in the
Northern Interior, carrying a
large and high-grade slock of
stationery, and employing workmen of experience and ability.
