 VOL. I, NO. 50
HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1912
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
This District Will Not Be Represented By Mining Display In Vancouver.
TREATMENT WAS UNFAIR
Methods of Men In Charge of Last Year's
Mining Exhibit Did Not Commend
Themselves To Legitimate Mining
Men- Protests Unavailing.
Vancouver's annual exhibition
will open in a few days, and will,
doubtless, have many admirable
features. The mining exhibit,
however, will be minus the expected display of ores from the
Omineca district. For this
"There's a Reason" as the breakfast food advertisements say.
At last year's fair Hazelton
camps, like a majority of the
mineral districts of the province,
were represented by comprehensive displays, including many
varieties of valuable ore, in
charge of a capable representative, who had no stock to sell and
no private interest to serve. At
the fair he found the mining exhibit housed in a small addition
to one of the buildings, without
easy means of access and with
but little accommodation for visitors. A protest againgt these
conditions went unnoticed.
When the awards of premiums
were made, it was found that Hazelton and its tributary district
had been entirely overlooked, although independent assays disclosed the fact that our silver-lead
ores carried higher average values than those receiving first
and second awards, while in
gold-copper and zinc ores the
Omineca exhibit was of considerably higher assay value than the
prizewinners.
During the fair, it is asserted,
stock-selling was allowed in connection with the mining exhibit,
and its management was so conducted as to give color to the belief that it was there solely for
the benefitof stockbrokers, while
on the conclusion of the exhibition, it is charged, Hazelton ores
were exhibited, under labels
bearing the name of another
district, by a man identified with
the management of the mining
exhibit.
On the grounds stated, mining
men of this district asked for
assurances that better conditions
and fairer treatment would be
accorded Omineca district exhibits at this year's fair. Their
representation were given no
attention, and they decided not
to send an exhibit.
While those interested in the
mines of Omineca district would
like to see a representative display of our high-grade ores at
the exhibition, they are in no
way inclined to accept treatment
such as was accorded them last
year. They feel that the absence
of an exhibit from the biggest
minerl district of the province
will be a rebuke to the management of the fair and will sufficiently mark their disagreement
with the unwise .policy so far
pursued by the management in
connection with the mining exhibit.
Ottawa, Aug. 5:- The United
States government has surrendered Alexander Dean, wanted in
connection with the Bank of
Montreal robbery in New Westminster last September. The ne-
cesBary papers in the case have
been received by the government.
President a Victim
Port au Prince: General Le-
Conte, president of the 1 aytian
republic, perished on Thursday
in an explosion and lire which
destroyed the national palace.
Four hundred are dead and
wounded. The powder magazine attached to the palace exploded.   Cause unknown.
Province Will Sell
Prince Rupert Lots
Victoria, Aug. 7:���August 28
has been definitely fixed as the
date of the auction sale of government-owned lots in sections
1, 5, 6, 7, and 8, Prince Rupert.
C. D. Rand will conduct the sale.
The railway will take no part.
Rupert Added To List
Victoria, Aug. 8:���Prof. Adam
Shortt, of the Dominion civil
service commission, who is now
here, announces that Prince
Rupert will be added to the list
of places where civil service examinations will be held in May
and November of each year.
POPULAR CITIZEN
TO LEAVE HAZELTON
Manager Boyd, of H. B. Co.,
Goes To Another Post���G.
H. Graham Succeeds.
The announcement was made
this morning that John C. Boyd,
the popular manager of the Hazelton store of the Hudson's Bay
Co., will shortly leave for Telegraph Creek, to assume charge
of the company's business there.
It is understood that the arrangement is of a temporary nature,
and that Mr. Boyd will later take
charge of one of the important
interior posts of the H. B. C.
Mr. Boyd is one of the most
popular business men of the
Northern Interior, and will be
much missed on his departure.
In addition to directing the manifold affairs of the Hudson's Bay
Co. here, he has always borne
his part in movements for the
welfare of the community. A
host of friends will wish him success in whatever position he may
attain in the service of the company with which he has been so
long connected.
Succeeding to the management
of the local stores of the H. B. C.
is George H. Graham, who has
been in the company's service
here for over a year. That his
record is unexceptionable goes
without saying, and there is no
doubt that the success which has
attended the business of the company here under Mr. Boyd will
be continued under the management of Mr. Graham.
Mr. Boyd will probably leave
for Telegraph Creek early in
September.
Mexican Insurrection
Juarez, Mexico, Aug. 5:���Thirteen states in Mexico, according
to insurrecto statistics, are in
open rebellion.
"Thirty thousand men," said
General Orozco, "are fighting
for reforms, liberty and justice
in the states of Chihuahua, Son-
ora, Sinaloa, Coahuila, Durango,
Vera Cruz, Tipic, Morelos, Guerrero, Oaxaca, Michoacan, Tabasco and Tlaxcala.
"These figures are conservative," said the rebel leader, "and
don't include irresponsible bands
calling themselves rebels with no
cause other than that of banditry."
WON SKIPS EXEMPTED
DESPITE BRITISH PROTEST
United States Senate Refuses to Strike Exemption Clause from Bill���Opposing Senators
Charge Ruthless Disregard of Treaty Obligations���Britain Indignant.
Washington, Aug. 7:��� By a
vote of 44 to 11 the senate tonight refused to strike from the
Panama Canal bill the provision
exempting American ships from
the payment of tolls, which clause
was formally objected to by Great
Britain. The senate has not yet
voted on the bill itself.
Ruthless disregard of treaty
obligations is charged against
the senate by Senator Burton and
Williams, while Senator Cum-
ming, in an impassioned speech,
said that if diplomacy fails in the
settlement of the dispute war
would be the final arbiter.
May Boycott Fair
London, Aug. 9:���The press
generally condemns the action of
the American senate as a breach
of the  Hay-Pauncefote  treaty.
It is stated that Great Britain
may not take official part in the
Panama-Pacific exposition if the
senate persists in its course.
Federal Action Possible
(Special to The; Miner)
Victoria, Aug. 9: ��� Premier
McBride. when questioned on the
proposal that the province withdraw from participation in the
Panama exposition, as a protest
against the U. S. senate's action
in the matter of tolls, said it was
primarily a federal matter. Mr.
Borden, he thought, would not
be slow to take whatever steps
were justified.
Vancouver May Act
(Special  tei The Miner)
Vancouver, Aug. 9:���The board
of trade will discuss at its next
meeting the proposal that Vancouver head a British Columbia
movement to boycott the Panama
exposition unless the senate
changes its course.
METHODISTS MEET
Features of Successful Meeting  of   Port
Simpson District.
UNIQUE TRIBUTE
Carlton Club Doors Open for First Time
for Premier Borden
The various mission fields of
Port Simpson District in the
Methodist organization were represented at the annual general
meeting held in Hazelton this
week. Presiding over the meeting was Rev. G. H. Raley, of
Port Simpson, president of the
conference and chairman of the
district. The other representatives were Rev. C. R. Sing,
Prince Rupert; Rev. L. M. Richardson, Kitselas; Rev. C. E.
Batzold, Telkwa; Rev. R. W.
Lee, Kispiox, and Dr. H. C.
Wrinch, Hazelton. The object
of the meeting was to consult
regarding the necessities of the
various parts of the district and
to prepare a report for the conference. The business of the
meeting was transacted in most
satisfactory fashion. The visitors spent some time in inspecting the hospital, and also visited
the Kispiox mission. They were
much pleased with the work in
this part of the district.
A public reception on Tuesday
evening gave the people of Hazelton an opportunity   to meet
the visiting representatives, and
a large crowd attended.     Under j
the   capable   chairmanship    of|
Government Agent Allison,   an j
enjoyable   program of speeches
and musical numbers was carried j
out.   On behalf of the townspeo-
pie. R. DeB. Hovell, president of j
the board of trade, welcomed the |
visitors to Hazelton,   Rev.   John
Field,  of St. Peter's,  and Rev.
D. R.  McLean,  of the Presbyterian  church, being among the
local   speakers    to    greet    the
delegates.
The visiting ministers returned
thanks in felicitous terms for the
kind reception accorded them.
Vocal and instrumental music
and choice refreshments rounded
out the pleasant occasion.
Before adjourning their meeting, the visitors passed a resolution expressing their appreciation
of the kindly manner in which
they had been received in Hazelton, and especially noting the
commendable fraternal spirit exhibited by members of sister
denominations.
- London, Aug. 4:���Premier R.
L. Borden and his ministerial
colleagues were the guests at a
Carlton Club dinner last night.
This is the first time in the history of the club that its doors
have been thrown open to others
than members. Premier Borden
in replying to the toast "Our
Guests," declared that upon the
attitude of the people depended
true organization of the Empire.
That truth could not be too firmly impressed upon them.
"The Dominions of the Empire," said Premier Borden, "are
willing and ready to enter into
some bond of imperial organization by which the future work of
the Empire shall be maintained
to the full. The people of Canada are determined as they were
at the last election, to keep control of their own destiny."
Roosevelt and Johnson
Chicago: The convention of
the new Progressive party on
Wednesday proclaimed Roosevelt its choice for president, with
Governor Johnson of California
for vice-president. Delegates
sang "Onward, Christian Soldiers." Progressives favor equal
suffrage for women.

Toronto, Aug. 8:���Chairman
Smithers, President Chamberlin, and Vice-President Kelly, of
the G. T. P., passed through
Toronto today, en route to Chicago and the west. After the
annual inspection of the completed portions of the road, it is
understood, the party will follow
the surveyed route of the railway between Tete Jaune Cache
and Hazelton. Canoes and pack
horses will be used. All despatch will be used in completing
construction of the railway, Mr.
Smithers said.

Russia, Austria and Germany Will Become Embroiled If Frontier Troubles
Lead To Open War���Turkey In Grave
Danger of Dismemberment.
Railway will be Ready
In view of the danger that low
water may soon prevent the operation of steamers between Skeena
Crossing and Hazelton, the transportation committee of the board
of trade communicated with
Superintendent Mehan, of the;
Grand Trunk Pacific, requesting
that steps be taken to provide for
passenger and freight service to
Sealey gulch. Mr. Mehan replied that the railway would be
ready to handle the traffic as far
as Sealey gulch, in case the steamers were taken off.
On their forthcoming tour of
inspection to be undertaken about'
the middle of the month,  Chairman A. W. Smithers,  President!
E. J. Chamberlin, General  Manager Donaldson and other direc-!
tors and officials of the  Grand
Trunk Pacfiic Railway, will proceed overland by  boat and  rail
from   Edmonton  to  Prince  Rupert.
At Tete Jaune Cache the party
will sail down the south fork of
the Fraser to Fort George, thence
journeying west by canoe and
pack train to railhead near Hazelton. The trip is expected to
occupy three weeks. Later the
visitors will visit Vancouver and
Victoria before returning East.
London, Aug. 5:���The recommendations of the Board of
Trade commission which investigated the loss of the Titanic,
include the following:
The Board of Trade should investigate the practicability of
providing sea-going ships, in addition to their watertight, transverse bulkheads, with a double
skin carried above the water-
line.or with a longitudinal vertical
watertight bulkhead on each side
of the vessel, or with both.
The court recommends that
the British Board of Trade be
empowered to direct changes in
the equipment of ships.
That the lifeboat and raft accommodations on seagoing ships
be based on the number of persons carried and the tonnage of
the ship.
The court recommends that
the lifeboats be provided with
signaling apparatus, with a compass and provisions, and that the
number of persons each boat is
intended to carry should be
plainly marked.
Sydney Buxton, president of
the Board of Trade, announced
it) the House of Commons that
the board had framed new rules:
governing life-saving precautions
on merchant vessels, based on
the recommendation of the committee which had considered the
Titanic disaster.
The new rules, said Mr. Buxton, must be approved by the
House of Commons before their
adoption. The rules, he continued, would be announced during the parliamentary recess and [
would come up before the House
of Commons early next session.
(Several newpapers here assert j
that the Board of Trade is entirely in the hands of the shipping;
interests and cannot be expected
to act impartially.
London, Aug. 8:-Europeagain
appears to be on the brink of war.
Unrest within the Turkish Empire is aggravated by hostilities
on the Montenegrin frontier
which at any moment may develop into open war, embroiling
in turn the great powers. Russia is pledged to support the ruling family of the little kingdom
on the Adriatic, but time and
again Austria and Germany have
shown themselves irrevocably
opposed to Montenegrin expansion at the expense of Austria's
ambitions on the Adriatic.
The Turkish Empire is nearer
partition amongst the great powers than at any time in the last
thirty years.
Turkey Seeks Peace
London, Aug. 9;���Both Turkey
and Montenegro, it is announced,
have withdrawn their troops from
the frontier. A special commission has been appointed at Con-:
stantinople to seek peace with
Italy.
PLEASED WITH MINE
Visitors To   Rocher de Boule   Gratified
With Big Showings
During the week there were
several notable visitors to the
Rocher de Boule mine. J. E.
Oppenheimer, of Butte and New
York, and B. Binnard, of Butte,
who are associated with J. F.
Cowan in the directorate of the
company, inspected the property, the appearance of which
pleased them very much. Accompanying the directors was
E. H. Wilson, a mining engineer
of Butte, who examined the
mine on behalf of a group of
stock holders. Mr. Wilson, who
was formerly an expert for
Heinze interests, and who has
an enviable reputation as a mineralogist, was much impressed
bv the big showings of ore. His
report will no doubt prove gratifying to his clients.
The directors of the company
contemplate the installation of an
aerial tram for the transportation of ore to the railway. The
cost of the four miles of line
which would be required is high,
but the amount of ore in sight
will soon justify the expenditure.
Another Revolution
Washington, Aug. 5: A new
revolution has broken out in Nicaragua. Captain Terhune of the
gunboat Annapolis at San Juan
el Sur, radiographed the navy
department that Managua, the
capital, was attacked on July 29,
and is now cut off from communication.
Contractor Welch Coming
(Spsolkl  lee Tile. Mirier)
Vancouver, Aug. 8: ���P. Welch
sails tonight for the north. He
will go inland from Rupert to
inspect construction work in the
Hazelton district. His advices
say laborers who quit work at
the instigation of the I. W. W.
are returning in large numbers.
Collingwood Schreiber, who has
just returned from the north,
estimates the number of men
working at 1600.
El Paso, Tex, Aug. 5: Several hundred more women and
children, refugees from the war
zone in Northern Mexico, have
reached EI Paso, swelling the
colony to more than 1200. Five
hundred additional Mormon refugees are en route to the border

No. 50.
Of the difficulties which confront settlers in a new district, the
most irksome is frequently a lack of money to develop and improve
their holdings. That the pioneers who are opening up our agricultural areas are deserving of every assistance cannot be gainsaid,
and if the government can afford them the financial relief so often
needed it will greatly expedite the development of the immense
new districts which are certain to add much to the prosperity of
the province as a whole. The question of government loans to
farmers has been brought before the legislature by Mr. Lucas, who
is now conducting a campaign of education, with the object of preparing the country for legislation which will provide for the formation of a loaning fund from which settlers may be assisted in
making necessary improvements.
In other parts of the British Empire various systems of government loans have been in operation for sufficient time to demonstrate
their practicability and value. The article reprinted below gives
some particulars of these operations, and the facts appear to justify the provincial government should it take immediate action in
the direction of financial assistance to the men who are devoting
their attention to the opening up of our vast agricultural resources.
Cheap Money for Farmers
Alexander Lucas, who represents the district of Yale in the
provincial legislature, has recent-
able him to meet the payments
out of the earnings of his farm.
During this summer a royal commission on agriculture will be ap-
ly made a communication to the pointed by the government to in-
press of British Columbia in quire into and report on all
which he deals with the neces-1 matters connected with the im-
sity of providing cheap money j provement and development of
for our farmers. Mr. Lucas' agriculture in this province,
points out that we import $15,-; They will find the solution of the
000,000 worth  of  farm  produce I farmer's troubles in some scheme
each year and that our farmers
do not produce fifty per cent, of
what the people of the province
consume. Agriculture is the
foundation of all permanent in
to provide him with the cheap
money that he needs.
Investigation has shown that
loans for farmers to be of the
the greatest benefit should extend
What monetary
Canada  or   the
dustry and is the source of pros- over from ten to fifty years at an
perity in any country.   We may j interest not exceeding four and
say, therefore, that this province j a half per cent.
is only fifty per cent, as prosper-1 institution   in
ous as it should be.    Our climate i United States will lend money on
ami soil are  unsurpassed  in the;such terms?
Dominion;  the government  has j    In   Great   Britain,   Australia,
established    experimental    and i New Zealand and  France they
demonstration farms; good roads; have plans whereby farmers can
and other means of transportation are provided and are continually being added to; the  Department of Agriculture at Ottawa
distributes millions of pamphlets
for the assistance of   farmers;
there are many farmers' institutes   and   agricultural   societies
working all   the   time   to solve
agricultural   problems,  and yet
with all   this   agriculture
guishesin British Columbia.
Lucas has put his  finger on
source   of   the   trouble   in
money question.
Farmers need money to develop the land, particularly in
this country, where most farmers have tp start in on land in a |
raw state. Mr. Lucas points out
that the public men of Canada
and the United States have, in
the past, devoted all their attention to commercial and manufacturing interests and left the farmer to shift for himself. In sowing that wind they are now reaping the whirlwind of agricultural
depression, which of course reacts on commercial and industrial
propositions.
The young and more progres-
obtain money on these terms.
In Canada the chartered banks
in 1911 had total deposits of over
$1,069,000,000, most of which we
may say was available for trade
and commerce and manufacturing enterprises,   but the banks
are prohibited from lending to
farmers on mortgage.
It is reported that in the New
Ian- j England States there are 86,000
Mr. i deserted farms that were at once
the!under cultivation.   Out of 435,-
the 1000 children attending school  in
Minnesota  only four per cent,
contemplated following agriculture for a livelihood.    The situation has become so alarming in
the United States that bankers
and   business men  in   fourteen
states have formed associations
to find a solution.    One firm in
Chicago gave a million dollars
recently to one of these associations to aid them in the work of
investigation and education.
It is a matter of prime impor
tance for the people of this province, and indeed throughout the
whole of Canada, to inform themselves as to what is being done in
other countries and to agitate for
sive men are leaving the farm
for the city, and as one consequence the cost of living is soaring. To stay this tide and to
turn it in the opposite direction
it is necessary to make farming
pleasant and profitable and enable the farmers to take advantage of the  most scientific and
immediate and adequate measures to be taken in the Dominion.
The following extract from
Mr. Lucas' paper are intended
to form food for thought for our
readers, who will be called upon
lo assist or to oppose the plans
of the royal commission now being formed to deal with the agri
up-to-date methods of production cultural needs of British Colum-
and sale of their produce, and
the industry must be given the
same financial facilities that other
industries enjoy.
The agriculturist must be able
to borrow all the money he can
profitably use, provided he has
good security to offer, and he
should be able to get it on such
terms of repayment as would en-
bia
Mr. Lucas says;
"Ireland affords a good illustration of what long term loans
at low rates of interest and cooperation can do. There were
about 560,000 tenant farmers in
Ireland when the Imperial Government passed the act authorizing the advance which made it
possible for  the tenant farmer
to purchase his holdings.
"The tenant farmers at that
time were described as 'a shiftless, bankrupt class without hope
or ambition.' In 1911 the report
shows that 330,000 of these tenant farmers had purchased their
holdings and it is reported that
not one of them is in arrears.
Co-operation under the Irish
Agricultural Organization Societies, commonly known as the I.
A. O. S., under the direction of
Sir Horace Plunkett. has added
greatly to their prosperity.
They have 900 societies and 400
co-operative banks. The co-operative banks make small loans for
short dates, to enable the farmers more successfully to carry on
this season's work. The Irish
farmer is now described as having
developed into a self-respecting,
prosperous business man, and
agriculture as a profitable and
pleasant industry.
"In France they have a plan
known as the Credit Foncier system, under the control and direction of the government. The
money is raised by the sale of
government guaranteed bonds.
This plan provides that a farmer
may borrow up to 60 or 70 pet-
cent, of the value of his farm for
any term of years up to fifty.
They also have co-operative banks
for short term loans. The Bank
of France also makes short term
loans to farmers amounting in
the aggregate to about $50,000,-
000 annualy. They report that
the loss by bad debts is infinitesimal, being less than in any other
line of credit they give. And
largely as a result of these very
liberal financial facilities 90 per
cent, of the French families own
the houses they live in and the
land they cultivate, and it is
claimed that they are the wealthiest peasantry in the world. Not
long ago a flotation of $60,000,000
of railroad stock was offered to
the public. It was over-subscribed 32J times. The total
amounted to about $2,000,000,000
and it is admitted that about 8
per cent, of this enormous sum
of money belonged to the
agricultural and working classes.
"In Germany they have a plan
known as 'The Land Schaften
System.' This is similar to the
Credit Foncier. They also have
co-operative banks for short term
loans. In addition to that the
Imperial Bank of Germany each
year loans through bankers about
$60,000,000 to the farmers, without loss. In Denmark, co-operation in production and selling has
been carried to greater perfection possibly than in any other
country. They also have co-operative banks.
"In all the states of the Commonwealth of Australia they have
systems similar to the French
Credit Foncier system, and a
description of how it works in
one state may be taken as representative of how it works in all.
Act No. 1482, passed December
24th, 1896, established this system in the State of Victoria, Australia. The act provides for the
management of the system by
five commissioners and an inspector-general. The commissioners
issued mortgage bonds. Such
bonds are guaranteed by the
government. The money raised
by the sale of such bonds is
loaned to farmers on first mortgage in sums of not less than ��50
and not more than ��2,000 to any
borrower, and up to 60 per cent,
of the value of the farm property
offered as security. The value
to be decided by a valuator appointed by the commissioners.
The loans bear interest at the
rate of 4h per cent., payable half-
yearly, and extending over a
period up to 30J years. A sum
equal to 6 per cent, on the amount
borrowed will pay off principal
and interest in 31J years. The
loans may be paid off at any time
by paying the interest up to the
date of repayment and the balance of the principal then remaining due.
"In some of tne other states,
New South Wales, for instance,
none of the principal is paid dur
ing the first five years, but is repaid during the next succeeding
twenty-five years. The total
number of applications received
by the commissioners from December 24th, 1896, to June 30th,
1911, was 9,407, amounting to a
total of ��4,612,955; total number
applications granted were 6,770,
amounting to ��2,906,515; total!
number of applications for which
reduced amounts were offered
but not accepted were 1,137,
amounting to ��819,165; total
number of applications declined
were 1,500, amounting to ��705,-
870. Of the loans granted;
��1,599,858 have been repaid,
leaving outstanding current loans
on the 30th June, 1911, amounting to ��1,306,657. As security
for this sum the commissioners
hold first mortgages on improved
farm property valued by their
own appraiser at ��2,952,445.
The amount of farm property
acquired by foreclosure, nil. Reserve fund over and above working expenses to provide for any
possible loss ��84,768.
"On the 30th June, 1911, there
were only six farmers in arrears
and the total amount of arrears
amounted to ��68 9s.
"On the 30th June, 1900, the
land under cultivation in Victoria,
Australia, was 2.868,305 acres.
On the 30th June, 1909, it was
4,063,801 acres; an increased
area brought under cultivation
in nine years of 1,195,496 acres,
which is an amount almost equal
to the total amount brought under cultivation in the state during
the 100 years ending the 30th
June, 1900. The other day nine
hundred immigrants had work
found for them within two hours
of their arrival in Melbourne,
and by reason of the credit
afforded the farmers by the
Credit Foncier system, seventy
per cent, of the men found work
on the land.
"Victoria's exports of meat,
wool, butter, cheese, wheat and
���other products of the farm have
increased from nothing until now
they amount to hundreds of millions, and chiefly attributable to
long term loans afforded farmers
by the Credit Foncier system.
All other states have a similar
system and are equally satisfactory.
"New Zealand has a slightly
different plan. The farming industry has increased by leaps
and bounds since the introduction of the act authorizing advances to settlers. The exports
of farm produce have increased
from almost nothing until now
they amount to ten million dollars' worth of butter, half a million bales of wool, over five million carcasses of mutton; they
also grow about ten million bushels of wheat annually and other
products of the farm in like proportion.
"The Nova Scotia Legislature
during the last session passed a
bill entitled 'An Act for the Encouragement of Settlement on
Farm Lands,' which provides for
advances by the government to
farmers, and while I do not approve of the plan provided, it is
a step in the right direction, and
the act will, no doubt, be amended and made more workable at
the next session of the house.
"The Saskatchewan legislative
assembly have passed the following resolution:
" 'That in the opinion of this
house it is expedient that the
government should inquire into
the question of obtaining money
for making loans at a low rate of
interest to farmers in the province.'
"It is also being made a public
question in Alberta and Manitoba, and from what I learn will
soon be so in Ontario. I believe
the most important questions are
how to provide money for long
term loans to farmers at low
rates of interest, and co-operation; these being secured, all
other questions will be easy."���

It is probable that the statistical commission recently appointed to investigate the question of collecting statistics, will
recommend the formation of a
Dominion statistical bureau. The
commission will report to the
minister of trade and commerce
by September 15. At present
each department collects its own
statistics and in the general results there is a great deal of
overlapping.

There is a large missionary
school in Tokio, Japan, where
the teaching is in English. One
of the pupils recently wrote a
composition on "England," and
we append some choice extracts:
"The England which occupied
of the largest and greatest dominion which rarely can be. The
Englishman always works with
very powerful hands and the
long legs, and even the emin-
enced mind and his chin is so
strong as deserved iron. Being
spread out from Europe to Astra-
lia to America his dominion is
dreadfully extensive, so that his
countrymen boastfully says, 'the
sun never sets on our dominion.'
The Testamony of English say
that 'he that lost the common
sense, he never had any benefit,
though he had gained a complete
world.' The English are cunning
mention to establish a great
Empire of the Paradise. As the
Englishman always confide the
object of the pure and the order
to be holy and they reproach him
if any of them are killed to death
with the contention of other
men."���St. Louis Globe Democrat.

Tlif National Insurance Act
lias come into operation in Great
Britain, so Car as the payment of
contributions is concerned. With
the exception of what is called
"sanitorium benefit," claimable
on tiiat date, no other benefits
are claimable until January 15,
1913. The framing of this legislation was a work of considereble
magnitude and its application
will probably be a still greater
labor. It does not appear that
employers have rendered themselves familiar with the procedure of the act. This is more interesting in view of the fact that
the penalty for offences against
the legislation or the regulations
under it is a fine not exceeding
��10.
As pointed out by The Times
the duty of paying contributions
is under the Act placed upon the
employer in the first instance.
He is, save in exceptional cases,
entitled to recover part of the
contribution from the worker, but
it cannot be too clearly understood that the employer pays the
full contribution in the first instance, and that he cannot recover the worker's share by deduction from wages or otherwise, unless he has first paid it.
Every employer is required to
pay contributions under the Act
in respect of all persons employed by him who are between the
ages of 16 and 70, unless the
employment falls within one of
the classes which are expressly
excluded from the compulsory
provisions of the Act. These excluded classes are clearly set
forth in the explanatory memorandum above referred to, which
should be consulted. They include apprentices without wages,
and so forth.
It does not matter for how
short a time the worker is employed, noi for how many employers he works, nor whether he
is paid by time or by the piece.
Nationality makes no difference;
contributions must be paid
whether the worker is an alien or
British subject. In case where
the worker receives wages or
other money payments, not from
his employer, but from other persons, the employer is still made
responsible for the payment of
the contributions- e.g., the owner of a cab who lets it out to a
cabman is responsible as employer for the payment of the
contributions in respect to the
cabman; and the employer of a
waiter whose earnings depends
entirely on the "tips" he receives
is under the same liability. In
short the Act requires that,
with certain exceptions, easily
ascertainable, every person in
the service of an employer must
be insured, if between the ages
of 1G and 70, and must:���
(1) Get a contribution card
before July 15th, either from the
approved society of which he or
she is a member, or from any
postoffice; and (2) produce it to
his or her employer before July
15th, to be stamped on the first
pay day. Every employer must
(1) require contribution cards
from every person in his employment (save those who are excepted by the Act; or, if the employed person fails to produce a
ard, use an emergency card
which may be obtained from any
postoffice: (2) obtain health in-

Vancouver, Aug. 5: Sir Richard McBride and Hon. Thos.
Taylor have returned from a trip
of inspection over the Canadian
Northern line along the North
Thompson river. They were favorably impressed with the progress of construction work and
speak highly of the splendid
agricultural possibilities of the
entire region. Many settlers are
going into the valleys of the
North Thompson.
The ministers were accompanied by Hon. Sam Hughes,
minister of militia for Canada,
who has gone to Victoria, to
confer with the government on
many matters. He states that
the ride ranges of British Columbia are to be improved, and
promises the erection of new
drill halls in Vancouver and

Wheat Crop in West
Montreal, August 5: "The
wheat crop in the Canadian northwest will be the biggest ever
grown, and while there is no
doubt of a yield of 200,000,000,
I believe the crop will be between
that figure and 250,000,000
bushels," said James Carruthers,
on his return from a two weeks'
trip to the West.
Harvesting will be general until
about the fifteenth of August. Conditions are from ten
days to two weeks ahead of last
year, and this is a big advantage,
when the crops out there have to
run the risk of frost.

"Cattle exports from the
prairie provinces have almost
ceased, despite the fact that
prices have advanced over fifty
per cent, during the last four or
five years, and are likely to go
higher. The reason is that the
big cattlemen have been selling
their herds and subdividing their
large ranches owing to the rapid
influx of settlers. I think they
were a little premature," said
Mr. P. Burns of Calgary to a reporter in Vancouver.
"I see that the steady decline
of the cattle industry is creating
alarm and that measures to revive it were discussed at a meeting held in Winnipeg yesterday.
Well, I don't see much prospect
of relief for the next four or five
years, as it will take at least that
length of time to get the ranges
stocked again. I have been constantly urging the farmers to engage in stock raising, but my advice was not taken seriously. I
don't know of a more profitable
business that any man can engage in. The day of big ranches
is past, never to return, but there
is no reason why each farmer
should not keep a herd, varying
according to the size of his farm.
If this were done, the cattle industry would regain its former
importance,
"People who complain about
the cost of meat do not seem to
stop to consider the causes at
work. It is simply a question of
demand and supply. Our firm
last spring paid seven cents a
pound for steers on the hoof on
the ranges, and lately the price
has declined about one cent per
pound."

Geo. C. Hartley, Proprietor

Those who have followed the
work of Dr. James VV. Robertson, of the department of agriculture, are aware of his confidence in the value of illustration
or demonstration in the teaching
of better methods of farming.
During his recent tours of European countries Dr. Robertson
has become further convinced
of the good influence upon the
community of well managed
farms. The committee on lands
of the commission of conservation, of which Dr. Robertson is
chairman, has introduced a system of illustration farms throughout Canada with a view to demonstrating locally the great
advantages of a proper system.
This work was undertaken because the agricultural survey
conducted by the commission for
the past two years on one hundred average farms in each of
the provinces, showed unmistakably that the farmers were not
getting from their land all that
they should. The illustration
farms, situated in every province
of Canana, are not the property
of the commission. The plan is
to select an average farm in a
given locality whose owner
agrees to be guided by the advice
of the agricultural experts provided by the commission and
make it an illustration center for
the neighborhood where the surrounding farmers can meet and
receive practical instruction. In
this way it is hoped that the
farmers can be led to see that
they can produce larger crops
with the means within their
grasp.
During the past session of parliament Dr. Robertson laid this
matter before the select standing
committee on agriculture and
colonization of the house of commons. In his address he pointed
out that arrangements are being
made whereby the illustration
farms will receive visits two or
three times a year from two of
the best experts on farming in
the whole country. The visit will
be made for investigation, for
counsel, for advice, for making
plans, all within the' means and
and the desire of the farmer himself. The object of this work is
to bring about better farming,
better business and better living.
A large issue of Dr. Robertson's
address has been printed for free
distribution by the publications
branch, department of agriculture
at Ottawa.
FARMERS' BULLETINS
Publications of Much   Interest   to
culturists Issued at Ottawa
Agri-
Some recent bulletins published
by the Dominion department of
agriculture are worthy the study
of all those endeavoring to make
a living out of the land. Theory
without practice is useless but
the experience gained by other
people can often be utilized as a
short cut to more successful
practice.
Ranchers often complain that
ranch butter does not command
as high a price in the market as
the creamery's product, and
those whose methods are modern
and sanitary undoubtedly have a
grievance against the slovenly
farmer who gets them all a bad
name, but this will not be
remedied until all alike awake to
the importance of the points laid
down in bulletin No 32 on "The
Care of Cream for Buttermak-
ing." This commences with the
health and feeding of the cows
and follows the subject through
the various stages of milking,
separating, storing and delivering the cream, each section being
dealt with from the standpoint
of the man on the job rather than
of the official in an office. The
results of experiments conducted
on farms and in creameries are
given to show the advantages of
of separating a rich cream, properly cooling and storing it, as
well as of making frequent deliveries. The bulletin says: "Keeping the cream for longer than
two days at the farms has, no
doubt, much to do with the old
cream flavor so common in
gathered cream butter, and we
can scarcely expect to have this
defect remedied so long as cream
is gathered less than three times
each week.
Copies of the bulletin may on
application to the publications
branch of the department of agriculture at Ottawa.
A SAFETY SHIELD
South   Wales   Miners   Claim   Invention
Abolishes Danger from Missed Holes
London, Aug. 5:���It is claimed
for a simple shield, devised and
patented by two South Wales colliery workmen, that its use will
make accidents from the misfiring of shots in mines and loss of
life arising out of blasting work
impossible, and thus avoid the
heavy death roll in pits and quarries.
The two inventors Messrs.
Abraham Price and William
Pryse, who are cousins, claim
that:
1 -By the use of the shield and
the method of steaming the detonator can be withdrawn in case
of miss fire.
2 There is no need to drill a
new hole alongside the charge-
laden hole. This process is the
chief cause of the explosion of
the old shot.
3 There is no time lost, and
no risk incurred in searching for
unexploded detonators.

AFTER LONG CHASE
Northwest Mounted Police Capture Notorious Cattle Rustler
Calgary, Alta., Aug 5:���Pursued for months through the
wilds of Northern Canada by
members of the Northwest
Mounted Police, William Ropp,
perhaps the most notorious horse
rustler and cattle thief in the
western country, has been apprehended.
Hundred of charges could be
preferred against him and there
is in prospect for him a long term
in prison.
The chase covered more than
1,500 miles and was remarkable
for the persistency with which
the police followed the trail of
the fugitive through the trackless country of the north.
Ropp, tired of being hunted,
has confessed and the list of the
crimes he committed is a revelation 'to the officers themselves.
In detail he told of several hundred and made the statement
that he had probably committed as many more which he
had forgotten.
Manager Bassett Here
Among the week's visitors
Hazelton was A. Bassett, manager of the Hudson's Bay posts

far north as Dease Lake and Mc-
Dame's, in upper Cassiar, and
this morning started for Babine
and other posts in the lower part
of the district.
Navy League Federation
The various branches of the
Navy League in British Columbia have been federated into a
central body at Victoria, which
will deal with any matter of
great importance, while leaving
minor matters to be dealt with
as heretofore by the branches.
The first matter which will receive the attention of the federated body will be the management of the training ship Egeria,
lately acquired by the Navy
League.
relating to the Mormon colony
situation. Orozco announced that
he had sanctioned the disarmament of the American settlers in
the Casas Grandes district.
"We intend to disarm every
foreigner living in the zones
dominated by the revolunionary
party if it will enable us to gain
the means to unseat Madero,"
General Orozco said. "But, at
the same time, we will afford
foreigners every protection, regardless of their sympathies or
affiliations, for their, homes and
families."
General Orozco denied that his
soldiers had entered the homes
of foreigners.
Las Veras, Mexico, July 25:���
(By courier to Douglas, Ariz.,) ���
The Mexican federal column of
General Sanjines has crossed the
Sierra Madres and is now within
fifty miles of Cases Grandes, the
rebel capital of Sonora. The

while General Blanco with 500
federals is atGjilos, twenty miles

The Cocos Treasure
Once again an attempt is to be
made to wrest from lonely Cocos
Island the buried treasure which
is generally supposed to be hidden there. The steamer Melmore,
which has been chartered to
make a voyage to Cocos, will
shortly leave Plymouth, England,
for South Wales, to take in coal
preparatory to sailing for Panama, where she will pick up two
ladies who are said to hold the
key to the treasure. Thence she
will go to Cocos Island, which is
situated 500 miles south west of
Panama.
Worth Sending For
A series of convenient blotters- the famous Barkley Girls-
will be sent free to every miner,
prospector and farmer sending
his name and address to C. H.
Handasyde. Jr., manufacturers'
agent, PrinceRupert. Mr. Handasyde, who handles every description of machinery and appliances for mining and prospecting,
as well as a complete line of
farming implements and machinery, has prepared an index of the
various lines he carries, which
will prove of value to residents
in the Interior. This index will
also be sent to those who address
a postal card to the address given
above, stating the particular line
of goods in which they are interested. 52
