HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, JANUARY 4, 1912
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
OF PROVINCE DURING YEAR
Sir Richard McBride, in Notable Message, Tells of Achievements in Past Year and Predicts Unexampled Advance
in British Columbia's Prosperity in 1913 ��� Remarkable
Growth of Mining Industry Will Continue
(Special to Th* Miner)
Victoria, Jan. 1:���In a message
marked by optimistic patriotism,
and eight newspaper columns in
length, Sir Richard McBride today reviews, as he did a year
ago, the progress of the last
twelve months in all avenues of
endeavor throughout British Columbia. The year, says the
premier, has been one of unexampled prosperity and progress;
but great as it has been, he predicts its eclipse by the present
year.
Sir Richard expresses his obligation to the members of his
cabinet, to the people of the province, and to the press for their
helpful and considerate co-operation. The message is the most
notable and exhaustive review
and forecast the premier has
yet issued. In railway construction, agriculture, mining, education and other departments, he
states, great progress has been
made; but another year will see
^        even greater advancement.   The
coming twelve months, he declares, will show phenomenal
growth in the mining industry,
even surpassing last year, during
which the province reached its
record annual production, the
total value of mineral products
showing an increase of more than
thirty per cent.
Speaking of the fisheries of
the province, the premier declares the present year will see
an unprecedented expansion in
this wealth-producing industry.
After treating of the well-advanced preparations for opening
to the world the great public
parks of Mount Robson, Kaien
Island, and Strathcona. the message indicates the early establishment of a new provincial department to supervise the administration of affairs of municipalities
with the object of securing uniform and harmonious action and
general economy.

ARE CONVICTED BY JURY
Indianapolis, Dec. 30: -After a
trial lasting for three months,
thirty-eight labor union officials
were found guilty of complicity
in the McNamara dynamite plots,
including the wrecking of the
Los Angeles Times building.
Frank M. Ryan, president of
the International Association of
Bridge and Structural Iron Workers, was among those convicted.
He, with others, was accused of
using the union's funds to destroy the property of contractors,
who refused to recognize. the
union. All those adjudged guilty
were found guilty of all the
counts charged in the indictment.
After Judge Anderson had
cleared the courtroom of all
spectators and the families of the
defendants, the thirty-eight prisoners were taken into custody by
deputy United States marshals
and special detectives and were
taken to the Marion County jail.
Herman C. Seiffert of Milwaukee
and Daniel N. Buckley of Davenport, Iowa, the only two men out
of the forty labor union officials
to be judged not guilty, were
discharged from custody.
Washington, Dec. 30:- Senator
Kern of counsel for the defendants in the dynamite conspiracy
cases, when told of the verdict in
Indianapolis, announced that the
cases would be appealed.
"Preparations for the appeal
ware made in advance," said
Senator Kern, "and it will be
made to the United States Cir
cuit Court of Appeals in the regular way."
Attorney General Wickersham
will consider the question of
turning over to the various state
authorities the evidence taken at
the trial, for such action as the
state authorities may wish to
take toward the possible prosecution of the convicted men on
charges of being accessories to
murders and destruction of property.
Chicago.Jan. 3:���The prisoners
found guilty of complicity in the
dynamite outrages have been
sentenced at Indianapolis to varying terms of imprisonment. Application made here for bail has
been granted. Bonds ior $10,000
each will be accepted, pending
an appeal, notice of which has
been given.

Austria's Ruler Dying
Vienna, Jan. 3:���Francis Joseph I, Emperor of Austria and

his death being expected hourly.

1830. The heir presumptive to the
throne is Archduke Francis Ferdinand, the Emperor's nephew.
Turkey's Demand*
London, Dec. 30:���Although
peace negotiations still continue
the outlook is not at all promising. Turkey is altogether too
sweeping in her demands and
asks that practically everything
possessed before the opening of
hostilities be restored. The demands of the Bulgarians are quite
as impossible as those of the
Turks. The former, it is said,
desire to get control of the Dardanelles, which among diplomats
is regarded as ridiculous.
There seems to be little likelihood of a cessation of hostilities.
SURRENDER OF ADRIANOPLE
TO RESEIOERS IS REPORTED
Turkish City, Beleaguered by Balkan Allies, Believed to
Have Fallen���Delegates From Warring Nations to Peace
Conference in London Still Negotiating; But Unable to
Agree on Terms of Peace
Paris, Jan. 4:���The surrender
of Adrianople to the besiegers is
reported in despatches which are
partially confirmed by advices
received in London. Conditions
in the beleaguered city had become so desperate that further
resistance was impossible, according to the reports.
London, Jan. 3:���Negotiations
between the delegates of Turkey
and the Balkan nations for a
treaty of peace are still continued
but are making very little progress. Some of the representatives are still hopeful, while
others predict the failure of the
conference.
London, Dec. 30:���The Ottoman delegates to the peace conference on Saturday presented
proposals to which the Balkan
representatives flatly refused to
agree. The envoys, after fruitless discussion, adjourned.
Following were the terms proposed by the Turks:
1. The Province of Adrianople
to remain under the direct administration of Turkey.
2. Macedonia to be converted
into a principality with Saloniki
as its capital. The principality
to be under the suzerainty of the
Sultan of Turkey, but governed
by a prince chosen by the Balkan
allies and nominated by the Sultan of Turkey. The prince to be
a Protestant. The new principality to be a neutral state.
3. Albania to be autonomous
under the soverignty of the Sultan and governed by a prince of
the imperial Ottoman family,
who is chosen for a term of five
years with the possibility of a renewal of the appointment.
4. All the islands in the
Aegean Sea to remain Turkish.
5. The Cretan question not to
be one for the discussion of the
conference, as it is a matter between Turkey and the great
European powers.
HAZELTON HOCKEY TEAM IS
READY FOR ROSS COP GAMES
The  telegraph  linemen   sue-
New York. Jan. 3:-The Atlantic coast is in the grip of a
widespread storm, of great
severity.
The hockey season opens tonight with a match between the j
Hazelton and New Hazelton:
teams, on the local rink.
The new rink, which has been
constructed and equipped at considerable expense, is complete in
every respect, affording a large
sheet of excellent ice. It reflects
great credit upon Allan Johnson,
the proprietor.
Although the stalwarts who
will sport the red and white of
Hazelton in the Ross Cup series
have had almost no opportunities
for practice, the team is in good
condition and is expected to give
a good account of itself in the
opening game tonight.
On Thursday evening a meeting of the club was held for the
transaction of general business,
the making of arrangements for
the cup series, and the election
of a captain. The latter position
was filled to the satisfaction of
all by the choosing of R. C. Sinclair, an experienced player who
has all the requisite qualities for
the captaincy.
Duke Harris, the popular manager, gave a satisfactory account
of the club's finances, and stated
that practically all the players of
last year's victorious team had
been signed, with a number of
new men who were likely to add
strength to the team.
The new suits and equipment
of the team have been received
through Cunningham's. The
boys should make a hit in their
new togs.
Captain Sinclair today gave out
the following as the probable
line-up of the Hazelton team for
tonight's game:
Goal, Wilson
Point, E. Harris
Cover Point, Johnson
Rover. Sinclair
Center, North
Left Wing, O'Shea
Right Wing, McDonell
Hugh Taylor will referee the
game, which will start at 8 p. m.
Storm Causes Damage
(Special  to The Miner)
Vancouver, Jan. 2:���The heavy
windstorm which prevailed
throughout the lower mainland
of British Columbia on Monday
and Tuesday did considerable
damage in the aggregate. During the gale the wind reached a
velocity of 65 miles sn hour.
Canada's Mining Growth
Washington, Jan. 2:-Official
statistics showing the world's
production of gold in 1912 were
made public today. The total
for the year was $464,000,000.
Of this the United States produced $92,000,000, a decrease of
$4,000,000 from the preceding
year. Canada, on the other
hand, gained $3,000,000 in production of gold. Africa heads
the list, with the United States
second, Australia third, and Mexico fourth.
New York, Jan. 3:���The British crusier Natal arrived today,
beating the body of the late

WATER NOTICE
For A Licence To Store or Pen Back
Water.
A CASE FOR THE LABOR COMMISSION
In the interests of justice, it is to be hoped that the Labor
Commission recently appointed by the Provincial Government will
not end its work until it has thoroughly investigated conditions affecting railroad construction workers in this district. The Miner
has previously called attention to the many complaints respecting
the hospital service and medical attendance furnished to the laborers in return for the hospital fees deducted from their wages, and
from a humanitarian point of view this may be still regarded as
the most important matter requiring investigation, but it is not by
any means the only serious complaint against the firm of Foley,
Welch & Stewart.
As reported in The Miner some weeks ago, the contractors are
now enforcing an order under which workers receiving time checks
at any point on construction are debarred from negotiating these
checks except at the pay office, where they must appear in person.
The pay office is situated many miles from the center of construction
activity, and by a noteworthy coincidence is located on the
townsite of "New Hazelton", in which prominent officials of the
contracting firm are financially interested. While the order in
question may be of benefit to the townsite project to which the resources of Foley, Welch & Stewart are being so freely devoted, its
immediate effect is to work injustice and hardship on many employees of the firm and its sub-contractors. Even though a laborer receives his time check at a point over a hundred miles distant from the pay office, he cannot realize a cent of the money
without traveling to the pay office, making his way as best he can.
If he has no money to pay stage fares and hotel bills he must, in
many cases, travel in "hobo" fashion���a rather unpleasant mode
of travel in winter.
Various reasons for the ne"- rale are advanced by the contractors, but none of their arguments in defence of the system appear
valid in view oi the facts. There is a bank at Telkwa, at or near
which point the pay office might well be established; and construction in the Bulkley Valley has been in progress long enough for the
firm to have made the necessary dispositions for the prompt payment of time checks by some system less arbitrary and unfair than
that now in force.
The Labor Commission should also inquire into the charge that
parties of laborers have been brought from the coast, to find, after
reaching distant camps, that there was no work for them.
When the Commission comes to investigate conditions along
the Grand Trunk Pacific construction, we hope these matters and
other grievances of the construction workers will receive the atten-
which fairness demands.
RAILWAY OFFICIALS
INDICTED BY JURY
New York, Dec. 30:���Charles
H. Mellen, president of the New
York, New Haven & Hartford
Railroad Company, and E. J.
Chamberlain, president of the
Grand Trunk railway of Canada,
who were indicted for violation
of the Sherman law, entered
pleas of not guilty and were released in $10,000 bail each.
Ottawa, Dec. 30: Tt is believ-
ee here that a possible settlement
of the Grand Trunk differences
is in sight. The indictment of
President Chamberlin by the
federal grand jury in New York
was a shock to his friends.
After two years' campaign in securing the good will of a large
part of New Englanders based
upon promises of development
and competition in the territory,
the sudden abandonment of construction work was followed by
the announcement of a working
alliance with the Mellon interests.
It is believed that financial
arrangements have practically
been effected with the Boston
financial interests whereby the
whole Grand Trunk construction
policy in New England, including
its entrance into Boston, will be
provided for as asked by the
Massachusetts legislature.
Notice is hereby given that Peter
Daniel Carr, of Telkwa, B. C, will apply for a licence.to store or pen back
10 cubic feet per second of water from
Canyon creek, a stream flowing in a

capacity to be built at S. J lot 1196 and
will be used for industrial purposes
under a notice of application for a license to take and use water, posted
herewith, on the land described as
North i of Lot 1197, Tp. 2a, Range 5,

This notice was posted on the ground
on the 11th day of December 1912. The

QUEBEC WILL HAVE
WORLD'S RECORD DAM
Quebec, Dec. 30:���The Quebec
Streams Commission has been
invested with the powers of a
corporation to carry out its
scheme of constructing a huge
storage reservoir on the Upper
St. Maurice for retaining the
flow of that river for generating
electricity. The dam will be
three times as large as that at
Assouan, which is the biggest in
the world at present. The latter
cost about $12,000,000, but the
Provincial Government proposes
to build the one on the St. Maurice for about $1,250,000. The
area of the proposed reservoir
will be more than three hundred
square miles and the amount of
water to be stored will be about
160 billion cubic feet. It will
drain a basin of more than sixteen thousand square miles in
area. It is calculated that it will
bring about 100,000 acres under
cultivation for the first year
alone.

completion and occupation of the
new wings of the parliament
buildings, the beginning of work
on a new administration block and
perhaps a new provincial museum
in course of erection.
The premier says it is most
gratifying to him to realize that
the program of provincial development he outlined a year ago
has been carried out almost to
the letter, adding "Nineteen
Thirteen should be a record year
of progress for this part of the
Dominion. One is compelled to
come to this conclusion. A recent
visit to the East gave me very
striking evidence of how well
known the British Columbia seaboard has become during the
last decade. This fact has undoubtedly had its influence in the
adjustment of several local
questions which were taken up
in Ottawa by Mr. Bowser and
myself."
Continuing with a review of
the matters discussed with the
federal ministers, he goes on to
say: "The government has
been carrying on investigations
with a view to the extension of
the Pacific Great Eastern at a
later date into the Peace River
country. This question has impelled us to study the possible
benefits of its extension, when
the time is ripe, past our northern boundary into Yukon and
Alaska. This would be a big
task for the province to undertake; but the time is not far
distant when such a project will
have a prominent place in the
development projrram of Canada
and the United States. It seems
to me that Ottawa and Washington must undertake the work if
the Pacific Great Eastern is to
be so extended."

Prank Trainer, a young man
who left Babine in August to
trap in the Finlay river country,
died on December 5th while returning to Hazelton.
W. H. Wrigley, the unfortunate man's partner, who returned
to Hazelton on Tuesday, tells the
story.
While on his way to the Finlay
Wrigley met Trainer, a newcomer
from Illinois, and as the latter
was anxious to go trapping, they
joined forces. Taking, as they
thought, enough provisions to
last until Christmas, and expecting to find plenty of game, they
went to the headwaters of the
Oslinca, where they stayed two
months. Wrigley found placer
ground which prospected well;
but no game was killed, and the
two were forced by the failure of
their food supply to start for Hazelton. Trainer, who was unaccustomed to snowshoe traveling
and weakened by privation, succumbed to the hardships of
the trail soon after Old Hogem
was passed. Wrigley, who broke
trail ahead and made camp, became alarmed when his compan-
failed to appear; but found it impossible to follow the back trail
in the darkness. He started back
when daylight came, to be met
by Baptiste, an Indian, who had
found the lifeless body of the unfortunate young man on the trail
the previous evening.
The remains were buried at
Old Hogem.
