Success Attends Organization
of Board of Trade at Meetings Held During   Week.
STRONG COUNCIL ELECTED
Groundhog Road Recommended at First
Business Meeting of Board���Townsite
Question Provokes Lengthy Discussion,
But No Action Taken -Meeting Tonight
The meeting held in the school-
house on Monday evening, to discuss the proposed organization of
a Board of Trade for Hazelton,
attracted the most representative
attendance of professional and
business men ever gathered in
the town. Electing L. L. DeVoin
chairman and J. M. MacCormick
secretary pro tern, the meeting
got down to business without
delay, naming the chairman, the
secretary, R. DeB. Hovell, W. P.
Murray and Frank McKinnon a
committee on organization.
After brief deliberation, the
committee reported in favor of
proceeding is accordance with
the Dominion act respecting
boards of trade. R. DeB. Hovell
was unanimously elected president; J.M.MacCormick vice-president and L. L. DeVoin secretary-
treasurer. On the election of a
committee being called, R. S.
Sargent. J. M. Adams, J. C.
Boyd, R. J. McDonell, W. P.
Murray, Arthur Skelhorne and
F. B. McArthurwere nominated.
After an exciting contest the
five first named were elected.
Adjournment was had until
Wednesday evening, when a
meeting to perfect organization
was held. It was announced
that fifty-one business and professional men had joined the
board; and before the proceedings
opened a majority of that number
had signed the official roll and!
paid the $15 fixed for the annual
fee. Thirty eight members were
present.
The officers elected at the first
meeting were confirmed in their
positions, while the committee,
with the addition of H. H. Little,
F. C. McKinnon and E. C. Stephenson, was constituted the board
of trade council.
A resolution endorsing the
application for an appropriation
for the trail to Groundhog was
unanimously passed after a short
address from F. A. Jackson, who
explained the necessity for better
means of access to the great
coalfields. The Dominion government was requested to make
necessary improvements on the
telegraph trail between Hazelton
and Ninth Cabin.
Several resolutions dealing with
the townsite question were debated at length; but none of them
seemed to promise the results
looked for, and the Board decided
to allow matters to remain in
statu quo, so far as it is concerned, until some later period.
A meeting of the Board has
been called for this evening, to
consider a resolution favoring a
single railway station in the
vicinity of Hazelton.
Veteran Statesman III
London:--Sir Charles Tup-
per is seriously ill of bronchitis at his home, Bexley Heath,
Kent. Sir Thomas Barlow,
Queen Victoria's favorite
physician, who is in attend-
dance, has hopes of recovery,
even though Sir Charles is in
his ninety-second year.
Conservatives Returned
To Power in Ontario
Toronto, Dec. 12:-Out of 106
seats, the Conservatives in yesterday's provincial election won
83, the Liberals 22, and the labor
party one, placing Whitney in
power for the third time, with a
majority of sixty. In the last
house he had 88 seats to 18 liberals. Both leaders were elected,
Whitney with 1,000 majority in
Dundas, and Rowell with 500 in
North Oxford. Hon. Thos.
Crawford, speaker of the assembly, had the largest majority in
Toronto, exceeding 3.000.
Canadian Northern Payroll
Vancouver, Dec. 14: The Canadian Northern disbursed over

British Columbia. The expenditure for December is expected to
reach a round million.
MANY MINERS ENTOMBED
Fate of One Hundred in Tennessee Mine
is Unknown���Five are
Rescued
Briceville, Tenn., Dec. 13:���
Raps heard in a shaft adjoining
the Cross Mountain mine, in
which over 100 men were entombed on Saturday, led the rescue party to believe that some of
the miners were still alive. United under the direction of the
federal authorities, the rescuers
hewed at lateral entries, and on
Monday five men were rescued.
Canary birds made the rescue
possible, being used for the first
time in mining history. The
birds are most sensitive to atmosphere which will not support
human life, and at signs of dizziness being observed in them
volunteer rescuers are not permitted to go farther, hel meted
workers taking up the task.
The live men rescued had abandoned all hope. The fate of the
others is still unknown.

Gibraltar, Dec. 12:���The Duchess of Fife, sister of the King,
with her husband and two
daughters, Princesses Alexandra
and Maud, were in great peril
during the stranding of the P. &
O. steamer Delhi off the Moroccan coast today. With all other
passengers, they were rescued by
a warship and brought to Gibraltar. The Delhi is on the beach
and will probably be a total
wreck. The lifeboat containing
the princesses was capsized, and
one of them was nearly drowned
before rescued by sailors. Several French sailors, from the
cruiser Briant, were drowned
while engaged in the work of
rescue,
Ottawa, Dec. 15: Manager
Collins, of the Canadian Fish
Storage Company of Prince Rupert, is here en route to England)
where he will call for tenders
for the building of sixteen fishing vessels for use on the waters
adjacent to his company's plant,
which will be finished in April,
and will cost half a million, being
the largest of its kind in the
world.
LOTS IN SOUTH HAZELTON
Eighty Lots Sold for Sixty Thousand Dollars in
First Day's Sale of Government and G.T.
P. Lots in New Location���Highest Price
$ 1,420���Kelly Injunction Denied.
(Special to Tho Miner)
Vancouver, Dec. 14:���The auction sale of lots in the townsite
of South Hazelton, held here today by direction of the provincial
government and the Grand Trunk
Pacific, was a pronounced success,
eighty lots being sold for $60,000.
There was a large attendance,
both in the morning and in the
afternoon. Bidding on desirable
lots was at times very keen.
In block 54, the government
block adjoining the portion of
the townsite reserved for the
people of the present town, high
prices were realized, Omineca
street frontage selling from
$1,000 to $1,420 a lot, the latter
figure being the highest of the
day. Lots on Broadway boulevard sold from $500 to $1,300,
while prices on Field Avenue
ranged from $550 to over $1,300.
The lowest price paid for any
lot was $225.
Aid. Williamson, who acted for
the government, was highly
pleased with the result of the
sale here, and regards the prospects for the sale at Victoria on
Tuesday as very good. Lots not
disposed of here will be offered
at the Victoria sale. Payments
at today's sale were promptly
made, exceeding the required de
posits in many cases. One purchaser offered the whole sum for
his lots, in hope of being allowed
a discount. He was informed
that no discount could be allowed.
Labor Party Wins
Christchurch, New Zea-
land:--The Labor party now
holds the balance of power,
and a dissolution of the New
Zealand house is expected
almost immediately. The
resultant election will probably
mean the downfall of the
Premier, Sir Joseph Ward.
Refused to Stop Sale
Vancouver, Dec. 12:���An application was made yesterday, on
behalf of Robert Kelly, for an
injunction restraining the sale of
South Hazelton lots on Thursday.
The plaintiff, through his counsel, argued that if the sale of
lots by auction went on, it would
prejudice the railway commission
against his petition for the removal of the station to the town-
site known as New Hazelton,
This petition is to be presented I
to the commission on December j
19. Justice Morrison, after
hearing the arguments of counsel, dismissed the application,
saying he did not think the sale
would affect the commission in
the least.
Counsel for the Grand Trunk
pacific successfully contended
that the court had no jurisdiction
to_restrain the provincial government, which is jointly conducting the sale. The railway com-,
pany is the present and only
defendant.
British Columbia May Re-purchase
Lands In The Canadian Pacific Belt
Ottawa, Dec 15: ���The proposal that the government of British
Columbia administer lands in the
Canadian Pacific Railway belt,
pending investigation by a commission to determine a fair price
for transfer back to the province,
will be considered at a cabinet
meeting on Monday. An early
and favorable announcement is
expected. Hon. W. R. Ross, the
provincial minister of lands, who
has had several conferences with
George V Proclaimed
Emperor of India
Delhi, Dec. 15:���The climax of
the coronation durbar was on
Tuesday, when, in the presence
of the hereditary princes and
chiefs of India, and amid the acclaim of five hundred thousand of
his Indian subjects, King George
was proclaimed Emperor of India.
At the conclusion of the ceremony of coronation, Viceroy
Hardinge announced the King's
gift of $1,600,000 for the promotion of popular education throughout India, and said further generous gifts would be made. The
announcement was also made
that Delhi would be made the
capital of India. Military reviews, garden parties, receptions
and native fetes were features of
what is regarded as the most
memorable durbar in India's
history.

Ottawa, Dec. 14:���Hen. Frank
Cochrane, minister of railways,
has approved of the location and
routes of the following railway
lines in British Columbia:
Pacific & Peace river railway
from Bella Coola or Dean Channel, B.C., to Dunvegan.
Pacific Northern & Omineca
railway line, from 6th to 8th meridian, via Pine Pass.

Frank A. Jackson left on
Thursday for a flying trip to
Groundhog mountain. On his
return he will arrange for the
freighting of supplies by the toboggan route, in order that development work on his company's
coal claims may be resumed
early in the spring,
The fire gongs, which have
proved of little use, have been
replaced by triangles. The a-
larm near Smith's store has been
removed to the fire-engine shed,
opposite the Galena Club.
Stephenson & Crum have purchased from Dr. Wrinch a site at
the two-mile post, on which they
have begun the erection of a
planing mill. They will remove
to the new location before the
end of the year. A lumber yard
will be opened in connection with
their business, to handle the product of the Interior Lumber
company's sawmill.
ROSS SAYS APRIL
(Special to The Minor)
Vancouver, Dec. 15:���W. J.
Bowen, a new York mining operator, has purchased the Mullin
& Steele hydraulic leases, situated on Manson creek, in the
Omineca river district. He is
now purchasing a complete
plant, which will be installed as
soon as it can be taken in over
the trail, probably in June next.
The plant consists of pipe, giants,
electric light plant and a tramway for handling boulders, the
whole to be operated by a steam
plant consisting of pipe boilers
and an upright engine. A crew
of miners will leave for Hazelton
on March 5, to proceed to Man-
son with toboggans in time to
finish preliminary work before
the arrival of the plant. Mr.
Bowen expects to expend approximately $75,000 in developing the
property.
Contractor  Thinks  Skeena Bridge Will
be Completed in the Spring
(Special I" Tho Miner)
Vancouver, Dec. 11: By October next the Grand Trunk
Pacific will be in operation from
Prince Rupert to Bulkley summit,
according to Duncan Ross, who
arrived here today, looking none
the worse for his eighty-mile trek
from Hazelton to the rail-head.
He expects the railway bridge
over the Skeena, near Hazelton,
to be completed about the end of
April, ancl says his 2000-foot tun-!
nel, just east of Hazelton, will
be finished about the same time.!
He thinks that in less than two:
years from October next construe-
tion crews working west from
Tete Jaune Cache will meet those
of the Bulkley somewhere west
of Fort George.

Provincial Premier Promises

Acts for Coming Session.
PROJECTED ROADTO PEACE
Government Will Assist Development of
Northland ��� Comprehensive Railway
Policy Will Keep Pace With Expected
Growth of British Columbia.
(Special  to The Minor)
Vancouver, Dec. 14: ��� Hon.
Richard McBride, who is here to
attend the unveiling of the Op-
penheimer memorial to Vancouver's second mayor, granted an
interview in which he stated the
coming session of the provincial
legislature would be the most
important in the history of his
administration. The chief feature of the proposed new legislation will be a progressive railway
policy, which is now being formulated. The Premier declared
the prospects of a new era of
development had already attracted to British Columbia some of
the largest contracting firms and
financial houses of America and
Europe.
"The much-discussed project
of a railway from Fort George to
the Peace river," said Mr. McBride, "is not a new subject to
myself and my colleagues, but
whatever we do we'll do cautiously and deliberately. We are
fully alive to the situation, and a
definite statement may be expected in the near future. We anticipate a large movement of
population to British Columbia,
therefore it will be necessary to
provide more railway transportation facilities."
After Gompers' Scalp
Cleveland, Dec. 15: Detective
W. J. Burns, referring to the
McNamara case in an address before the National Trades association here, declared he would
force Samuel Gompers, head of
the American Federation of
Labor, out of the ranks of organized labor, by exposing his connection with the dynamiters.
He predicted more arrests.
The annual meeting of Omi- j
neca Central Conservative  asso-
elation was held at Aldermere on !
Thursday    evening,     delegates
from Hazelton and  the  Bulkley
valley associations  being in  attendance.     Matters relating to
requirements of Omineca district
were thoroughly discussed  in  a
session lasting four hours.     The
election of officers and committee
resulted in the choice of the  following: George   Findlay,  president; E.  C.   Stephenson,   vice-j
president; Wm.  Croteau,  secretary; R.   DeB.  Hovell,  Edward
Murphy, A. R. Macdonald, E. H. j
Hicks-Beach and Donald McGlas
han, executive committee.
It is understood that a�� a result
of a conference between the
Hindu delegation now in Ottawa
and the British Columbia members, it is possible that an arrangement may be arrived at under which Hindus now in British Columbia will be allowed,
under strict regulations, to bring
their wives and families to Canada,
BAZAAR WAS SUCCESSFUL
Ladies of  St. Peter's Realize Handsome
Sum for the Church
Building Fund
A pleasant and highly successful occasion was the annual bazaar of the Women's Auxiliary
of St. Peter's church, which was
held in the auditoriun on Thursday evening. The hall, which
was handsomely decorated, was
filled by a crowd which testified
in a most substantial manner to
its appreciation of the work of
the ladies.
With R. S. Sargent as master
of ceremonies, the program of
the evening was carried out without a hitch, an important feature
being the vocal and musical selections with which the audience
was entertained by the following
ladies and gentlemen; Mrs. Leslie,
Mrs. McLean, Mrs. Walters, Mrs.
Williamson, Mrs. Harvey, Miss
Sharpe, Miss Light, Miss Grist,
H. F. Glassey, H. W. Sharpe,
J. W. Morison, Major Leslie,
W. J. O'Neill.
At the work stall, which was
well patronized, Mrs. Field, president of the Auxiliary, was assisted by Mrs. R. F. Leslie and Mrs.
R. S. Sargent. Refreshments
were served in a Japanese tea
room by Mesdames Sealy, Kirby
and Homer and Misses Light,
McCumber and Smith, The candy booth, in charge of Mrs.
DeVoin and Mrs. Cox, had large
receipts, while the other bazaar
features were candle lighting, in
charge of Miss Wrathall; fortune
telling, by Mrs. Graham; Grab-
bag, by Miss Lindell; Hat-trimming contest, by Mrs. Adams;
Weight and name guessing contests, by Mrs. Sharpe.
Many other ladies assisted in
making the event successful.
The receipts, which net the society $569, with $142 received
from small sales since the last
bazaar, will be added to the
church building fund, THE OMINECA MINER. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1911

Hazelton Board of Trade
Efforts to organize the business men of Hazelton have brought
forth fruit, the meetings held during the last week resulting in the
organization of a Board of Trade on the lines laid down by the
Dominion act governing such bodies. Practically every business
and professional man in the town has become a member of the
Board, and the body begins its career under the most favorable
auspices. Its first step was the endorsation of the application for
an improved trail to Groundhog, which will doubtless have good
effect. While efforts to crystallize the sentiment of the members
on the townsite question were unavailing, resolutions looking to
any action in the matter being consistently voted down, the discus-
sion of the situation which resulted will prove to be not without
value. The resolution which will be submitted at the meeting
scheduled for tonight, if it passes, will have the effect of informing
the railway commission of the stand taken by the people of Hazelton, and, should that tribunal see fit to take action, will enable the
commission to adjust matters in a manner satisfactory to the people

A Work of Necessity
An application which will receive the hearty endorsation of the
people of this district has been made to the provincial government
on behalf of the various concerns operating in the Groundhog coal
district, who ask for a large appropriation for work on the trail
from Hazelton to the coalfield.
The development of the enormous coal deposits in the northern
part of Omineca district will, as the Miner has before pointed out,
mean a great deal to Hazelton and the district, and the people, in
endorsing the project, are acting in their own interests as much as
for the benefit of the coal operators.
It is estimated that the work necessary to provide a good pack-
trail, following a wagon road grade where possible, will cost $26,000,
and it is believed the provincial government will set that sum aside
for the work, which is likely to be done as early in the summer as
practicable. ���_______
Sale of South Hazelton Lots
The telegraphed report of the auction sale of South Hazelton
lots in Vancouver indicates that the people of the Terminal City are
alive to the importance of this district and its future commercial
center. The number of lots sold and the prices realized are
regarded as highly satisfactory by those who had charge of the sale
ior the provincial government ancl the Grand Trunk Pacific, and
prospects for the second sale, which is to be held in Victoria on
Tuesday next, are considered very bright. At the time of writing,
no statement of the plans of the government and the railway company for the development of the townsite across the river have
reached Hazelton. It is reasonable to expect that some intimation
of the policy to be pursued will be vouchsafed in the near future.

The Grand Trunk Pacific /   joint Owners   \ The British Columbia
Railway Co.

The Only Logical Townsite
at
REGISTERED AS SOUTH HAZELTON-
In the summer of 1912, when the G.T. P. trains are running from Prince
Rupert to Hazelton the merchants and residents of Hazelton must move to
the railway. The place to which they move will be the center of trade
for this district and in a short time is bound to become one of the big
cities along the Grand Trunk line.
The G.T. P. will build their station or depot at South Hazelton this
spring. Clearing on the townsite has already commenced. The side
tracks and station grounds are now being laid out and work on these will
be started within a short time.
The British Columbia Government in joining with the G.T. P. as they
have done in the townsite of South Hazelton very clearly show their
policy. That they will build a bridge across the Bulkley connecting the
present town with the new one is a foregone conclusion. That they
will spend thousands of dollars in erecting Government offices, grading
streets, and in advancing the townsite is a certainty to the thinking man.
In short their policy here will be practically the same as their policy at
Prince Rupert when Prince Rupert was first put on the market.
In the past week ninety-one lots have been reserved in the townsite of
South Hazelton by the business men of Hazelton. This clearly shows
the attitude of the men most interested and should be proof positive that
South Hazelton will be the only town in this district. If you are not
yet satisfied with this watch for the announcement of the Government
policy.     While waiting for this announcement consider these facts:
South Hazelton is beautifully situated on a level bench with natural
drainage and an excellent water supply.
South Hazelton is the head of navigation on the Skeena.
South Hazelton is the center of a great mining district.
South Hazelton has surrounding it a great fruit and agricultural area.
South Hazelton is the supply base for the Groundhog mountain coal
country, the greatest anthracite coal country in North America
next to Pennsylvania.
South Hazelton is the natural starting point of a railroad to the north,
to the Groundhog coal country, to the Yukon and Alaska.
SOUTH HAZELTON IS THE LOGICAL TOWNSITE.
The Auction Sale held in Vancouver on Thursday was a
great success. An immense crowd packed the auction rooms
and bidding was very keen. Lots sold at prices ranging from
$225.00 to $1,420.00; eighty lots bringing Sixty Thousand
Dollars.    The next sale will be held in Victoria on December 19.
A limited number of lots were reserved for us to be sold here at
prices in accordance with those obtained at the auction. Most
of these lots have already been sold. If you have not purchased
one as yet see us at once, for they will not last long.

Great Britain's twenty-first
battleship of the Dreadnought
type, the Centurion, launched at
Devonport, November 18, the
newest addition to the navy, is
said to be the best armored ship
afloat.
Mrs. Churchill, wife of the
new first lord of the admiralty,
christened the vessel.
The Centurion is a sister ship
of the King George V, and has a
displacement of 28,('00 tons,
length 555 feet, beam 80 feet and
draft 271-2 feet. Its engines
are expected to develop 31,000
horse power,
A remarkable feature is the
extraordinary number of watertight compartments, scores of
which are intended to make the
vessel unsinkable, even if a section below the water line is penetrated by a torpedo.

The steamer Tees is now
Victoria undergoing repairs,
Backing from the wharf at the
clay pits at Easy creek, at the
head of Kyuquot sound, the
Tees ran on a submerged rock.
The propeller blades were broken
off and the rudder jammed,
rendering the vessel helpless.
She came off easily and went to
an anchorage in the sheltered
harbor. Owing to the topographical conditions efforts to send
news of her predicament by wireless failed. The operator tried
again and again, seeking at times
to (lash through the northern
valleys to reach Prince Rupert
station, but no answering signal
came, and on Sunday night Chief
Officer Alex. Thompson and four
seamen started in an open boat
for Estevan, over sixty miles
away. For six days the five men
struggled against wind and heavy
sea, fog shutting in on them,
and lost and weather-beaten,
they spent three trying days
without food, struggling hopelessly on until they were picked
up exhausted and suffering
severely from cold and privation
by the tug William Jolliffe off
Kyuquot sound. The finding of
the brave crew, starving and wet
through from the spray and
spume which broke over them,
gave the rescue steamers the
news of the location of the disabled Tees, and the Joliffe, Salvor
and Nanoose, after being stormbound off the entrance to Kyuquot for two days, hurried to the
scene to find that those whose
lives the crews of the rescue
steamers were hurrying to save,
and for whose safety thousands
had been gravely alarmed, had
endured no other hardship than
to miss one meal a day. Not
knowing how long they would
have to wait for assistance, Captain Edward Gillam had put all
hands on two meals a day. Other
than this there was no hardship.

J. B. Fournier, of the Knox

from the G. T. P. for the supply
of 30,000 ties from timber in the

The Payne mine, one of the
famous properties of the Slocan,
is to be developed by driving a
lower tunnel. Eli Carpenter,
now a Hazelton prospector, located the Payne in 1891 and sold
it for $20,000 to Steve Bailey, who
did some work and sold the mine
to A. W. McCune for $125,000.
McCune, it is said' took a million
dollars out of the property. He
sold it to an eastern company,
j which has now bonded it to a
group of Spokane men for$l,000,-

New Hazelton Depot
It has been said by those with other propositions to put forward
that there would be no station on lot 882, New Hazelton. The
appended letter speaks for itself:���
"Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,
"Winnipeg, Man.
"Chas. H. Mansur, Assistant Solicitor.
"A. Whealler, Esq., Barrister,
"Vancouver, B.C.
'Nov. 17, 1910.
"Dear Sir:-Re Lot 882, Coast District, B.C. Your letter of
the 2nd September last has been referred to me by the Land Commissioner. I have had tracing attached to each one of the enclosed
conveyances, and enclose herewith an extra blue print, for your
copy of conveyance which you desire to keep. 1 note that you
request that a conveyance be incorporated in this Deed, that a
siding be placed and maintained on this land, The Company
would much prefer to have clear title to this right-of-way, but at
the same time it is their intention to establish and maintain a siding
on this property, and it seems to me that an undertaking in the
form of a letter would be sufficient for your purposes. I am,
therefore, authorized to undertake, on behalf of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Co., that the Company will construct a siding upon
the land described in the enclosed conveyance, and that so long as
the Company's line of railway is in its present location, this siding
will not be removed east or west of this land.
"You will understand that the location of the Company's line
might be at some future time and for some unforeseen cause
changed by the Board of Railway Commission and the Company
would not like to bind itself to maintain a siding at this point forever, as upon the application to the Board the Company might be
ordered to change its location.
"1 think the above undertaking should be sufficient guarantee
to you of the good faith of the Company and I trust that you will
not insist upon this covenant being incorporated in the Deed.
"Yours truly.
"(Signed) CHAS. H. MANSUR,
"Assistant Solicitor."
Also, if there were no such agreement with the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Co., there would still be a station at New Hazelton,
as the location of stations on the line are governed by the Dominion
Railway Commissioners.
Read the following extracts from the Dominion Railway Act:
Revised Statutes op Canada, 190G.   Vol. 1.
STATIONS.
258. Every station of the Company shall he erected, operated and maintained with good and sufficient accommodation and facilities l'or traffic.
2. Before the company proceeds to erect any station upon its railway, the
location of such station shall he approved of hy the Board.
3, In the ease of any Railway, whether subject to the legislative authority
of the Parliament of Canada or not, subsidized in money, or in land, after the
eighteenth day of July, one thousand nine hundred, under the authority of an
act of the Parliament of Canada, the payment and acceptance of such subsidy
shall be taken lo he suhject to the covenant or condition, whether e'xpressed or
not in any agreement relating to such subsidy, that the company, for the lime
being owing or operating such railway shall, when thereto directed or ordered
hy the Board, maintain and operate stations with such accommodation or facilities
in connection therewith as are defined hy the Board, at such points on the rail-
Way as are designated in such order.
The Railway Commission will meet in Ottawa in a
few days and after their Session the exact point of the
depot on lot 882 will be announced.
The Bulkley Bridge
Now in regards to a bridge across the Bulkley river, connecting
the roads from the mines with the railway. It has been quite
extensively advertised, although very little in Hazelton, that a
bridge was to be constructed at a point farther down stream than
the present bridge.
To anyone who knows the location of the mines and the topography of the country, this idea is comedy. If there is a mine
owner on Nine-mile mountain, or Four-mile mountain, who is willing to say that there is any other route from the mines to the railway that will favorably compare, as to distance and grades, with
that to New Hazelton, over the proposed high-level bridge across
the Bulkley at Haguelgate, we have a special cash prize of $250.00
awaiting him in our office to be paid over on his word.
We have received the following telegram from Robert Kelly,
owner of New Hazelton, Section 2:
Harvey & McKinnon, Hazelton.
Please engage competent engineer at once have him
survey for high level bridge at Haguelgate. Issue
specifications and call for tenders for immediate construction. Arranging with Indian Department at Ottawa for right-of-way through the reserve.
(Signed) Robert Kelly.
An engineer will be on the ground next week and as soon as he
has completed the necessary surveys and plans, construction will
be proceeded with.
With this bridge constructed at this point all traffic from the
mines and Kispiox agricultural district���practically all of the produce of this district���must rind an outlet at New Hazelton.
This one thing alone should satisfy the most skeptical that New
Hazelton is the inevitable townsite of the district.
Stop and Think!
Here we come to one of the most important features in regard
to the station grounds. The grade through New Hazelton allotted
to the G. T. P. is on level grade.
New Hazelton is the only point on the G. T. P. from the bridge
across the Skeena where a level grade can be procured. From New
Hazelton west the grades are maximum.
The Road to Ground Hog
The cheapest route, the shortest route, and the route with the
easiest grade to the Groundhog Coal Fields from the G. T. P. main
line is from New Hazelton. In fact this is the only feasible route,
according to the engineers and those pioneers who have covered
every foot of the country.
