OPPOSITION CONTINUES TO
OBSTRUCT LEGISLATION
Liberal "Loyalty" Displayed in Debate on Naval Aid Bill-
Admiralty Memorandum Shows Fallacy of Opposition
Contentions���Still in Continuous Session
(Special to The Miner)
Ottawa, Mar. 13:���The legislative blockade continues, the
Liberals refusing to abandon
obstructive tactics. The deadlock may be broken for a short
time to pass supply; but will
probably be resumed. All members have grown accustomed to
continuous sessions.
The feature of the week came
on Monday, when the premier,
having obtained the consent of
the admiralty to read the whole
of the naval memorandum, gave
the document to the house. It
shows the utter futility of the
opposition scheme, whi^h would
^cost seventy-five million dollars.
The Liberals having called for
the information, the document
acted like a boomerang. On
Tuesday, the Liberals, enraged
by the effect of the memorandum, even made accusations
against Churchill, reading into
the admiralty statement much
that was not there. Some talked
of the possible separation of
Canada from the Empire. Hon.
H. R. Emmerson was the most
outspoken of the Liberals, reading from the American declaration or independence, and declaring that the warning which was
not taken by the British govern
ment in 1776 should not be forgotten by British statesmen
today. Taunts flew thick and
fast across the house.
ANOTHER MINE SHIPPING
-ERIE RESUMES WORK
-MUCH MINING ACTIVITY
(Special to Tho Miner)
Ottawa, Mar. 14:���It is reported the house rules will be amended next week and the naval debate will be subject to the
closure.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier is ill. ���
Disgraceful scenes continue to
mark the continuous session.
Liberals, as a joke, turned out
the lights last night.
Premier Borden received from
Sir Richard McBride a telegram
saying: " My colleagues join me
in expressing admiration of the
splendid fight you are making on
the naval question and your determination that Canada shall
give assistance in the defence of
the Empire until a permanent
policy is decided upon. You
have the support of British Columbia. A great majority of
Canadians must feel that you are
acting in the best interests of
the country."
Mr. Borden replied that he appreciated the endorsation and
was determined, in the face of
unworthy obstruction, to press
the proposals to conclusion.
DEMONSTRATING NEW
CONSUMPTION CURE
Ottawa, Mar. 12:-Dr. Friedman, the German scientist whose
new treatment for consumption
has attracted such world-wide
attention, demonstrated his
methods today in the hospital
here before a gathering of distinguished physicians. He operated quickly upon many patients
in all stages of tuberculosis.
The j,tcne was a tragic one, the
pathetic figures of the patients
lending it a pitiful aspect.
Dr. Friedman will return to
the city shortly to see the effect
of his clinic. He was received
by ihe Duke of Connaught, returning to New York. Later he
will visit Winnipeg and perhaps
British Columbia before returning to Germany. He is today
the most-talked-of physician in
America.
Toronto, Mar. 14:���Dr. Friedman treated fifty tuberculosis
patients in Montreal and twenty
here.-. He will return in a month.
A patient treated in New York
tells of .strange sensations, declaring he already feels new life.
,Dr. Friedman uses bacillus from
a marine turtle.
Perth. Ont, Mar. 13:--Hon.
John G. Haggart, M. P. for
South Lanark, died today, after
a long illness. He was one of
the veteran Conservative
members, having fought and
won in ten general elections.
SUING FOR PAYMENTS
ON NEW HAZELTON LOTS
The Northern Interior Land
Co. has brought suit against a
prominent business man of Hazelton to enforce the second payment on two lots in the construction town. Nearly two years
ago, when there was a prospect
that New Hazelton would develop
into a permanent town, the purchaser selected two lots, on which
he made a payment. Developments not justifying his removal
to that point, he asked for the
cancellation of his agreement,
offering a money inducement, in
addition to forfeiture of the payment already made. The company refused the offer, insisting
on the purchase of the lots.
Bowser Scores Opposition
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, Mar. 13:���In an
able address delivered here, Hon-
W. J. Bowser reviewed the work
of the recent session and took
occasion to answer the Liberals'
criticisms of the elections act
amendments and the methods
adopted for preparing the new
voters lists. Ample notice had
been given, the attorney-general
said, and every elector had a
chance to register. He was particularly anxious to get every
liberal on the list, believing they
were likely to vote Conservative
when the next occasion arose.
He scored the Ottawa opposition
for their obstructive tactics in
the naval debate.     ���
The Erie mine, one of the best-known properties of the district, is to resume development immediately. E. L. Kinman, the
principal owner, came in on Wednesday and immediately made the
necessary arrangements, letting a contract to Harris Bros. & Mullan for 446 feet of work, including a crosscut tunnel. Duke Harris and Jack Mullan, the latter of whom will have immediate charge
of the work, have engaged men for three shifts, and ground will be
broken on Monday. In the meantime, the big ore dump is being
sorted and sacked, and two cars will be shipped next week, the first
leaving on Monday. The ore, at present metal prices, will run
$170.00 gross.
The freight rate of $6.40 to Prince Rupert is considered much
too high, and Mr. Kinman is making an aggressive fight for a
fairer schedule. It is believed the railway company will reduce
the rate. 	
Mr. Kinman has received treatment quotations from the Tacoma smelter which will greatly interest silver-lead miners, marking
as they do, a considerable reduction in smelting rates. For ores
carrying less than 35 per cent, lead the new rate is $5; 35 to 40 per
cent, ores will be treated for $4; 40 to 45 per cent., $3; 45 to 50 per
cent, $2; 50 to 60 per cent, $1, with no treatment charge on ores
carrying over 60 per cent. The former flat rate was $8 a ton. The
freight rate from Hazelton to Tacoma is at present $9.50, and settlements are on New York quotations at time of receiving ore.
The zinc penalty has been reduced from 50 to 30 cents per unit over
8 per cent. All of which means that the smelter is anxious to obtain lead ores.
John Huderle and Harry Walker, accompanied by Phil Morris,
left yesterday to begin the season's work on their placer claims at
Manson, Preliminary work was done last fall, and plenty of water
will be available for their ground-sluicing operations. The gravel
carries good values, and they expect to clean up a good sum with
a comparatively small crew.
Frank A. Brown has just returned from Butte, where he was
successful in making arrangements for the development of the
Owe Lake group, in which he is now associated with Montana
capitalists. As soon as the snow goes off an examination of the
property will be made, and plans will be prepared for active work,
which will begin about May 1.
Amos Godfrey, field superintendent for the Copper River Coal
Syndicate, returned during the week from a visit of inspection to
the big property on Coal creek. He informed The Miner that, on a
conservative estimate, there was 66,000,000 tons of coking coal in
the two principal seams, which prospecting shows to extend over
at least five sections. The pitch of the coal and the development
of other workable seams is expected to largely increase the quantity. On Spring creek, where Superintendent F. B. Chettleburgh
drove a 62-foot tunnel to prospect a new exposure of the main
seam, the face shows: bottom coal (minable), 6 feet 4 inches; fire
clay, 7* inches; top coal, 2 feet 7 inches. The dip is 34 degrees
north, 48 degrees west and the strike north 42 degrees east Considering the high quality of the coal, this is a remarkably good
seam and a fine working proposition.
Mr. Godfrey is now on his way to Groundhog, where his companies have several large areas of coal land, with excellent showings of the anthracite coal which has made the district famous.
On these a good deal of work will be done this season.
J. E. Oppenheimer, one of the principal shareholders in the
Rocher de Boule, arrived from Butte on Wednesday, and is now in.
specting the big copper showings on the property with a view to
carrying out extensive plans for the equipment and development of
the mine, which is expected to ship very soon.
On the Silver Standard, stoping has begun, and it is understood regular shipments of high-grade silver-lead ore will be made.

TO YUKON
Ottawa and Washington Governments will be Invited to
Participate in Important Enterprise���To Link Up British
Columbia, Yukon, and Alaska with Railway
Victoria, Mar. 10:���Sir Richard
McBride will seek the co-operation of the United States government in a project for extending
the Pacific Great Eastern railway, by main and branch lines,
through Alaskan territory, tapping the principal mining camps.
It is proposed to extend the line f
from Fort George through the
undeveloped regions of northern i
British Columbia and the Yukon
territory and incidentally provide
Alaska with transportation facilities. His visit to Washington,
where he will interview President Wilson and members of his
cabinet, will take place in April.
following the delivery of the an-1
nual address to the students of
the University of California on j
March 22. Public men who have
been similarly honored by the
university in recent years include
ex-President Taft and Hon. William Jennings Bryan.
The premier is enthusiastic
about the possibilities of the Canadian-Alaskan-Yukon project as
he is convinced that it will open
up enormous areas to mining
and agricultural development
and create one of the largest,
railway systems on the continent with a mileage three thousand miles in extent.    The ad
vantages of direct railway communication between the north
country and the outside world
will be set forth to the Washington authorities.
It is understood that the cooperation of the Dominion Government will be sought and it is
not unlikely that the premier
may visit Ottawa before returning home. The precise route
will not be determined until preliminary surveys have been made
and the attitude of the United
States authorities as regards the
Alaska portion of the line has
been ascertained.

No. 28.
The Omineca Miner has thc largest bona fide circulation of any newspaper in the
Northern Interior of British Columbia.
The opening of the season of mining activity is marked by the
arrival in Hazelton of several groups of mining men, whose operations this year will go far to prove the extent and value of our
great mineral and coal deposits. Already a majority of those who
will work in lhe inure distant sections of the district have begun
the work of transporting supplies over the toboggan trails, and
when spring opens several hundreds of men will be engaged in
developing properties in the newer camps.
In the historic goldfields of the Omineca river and Manson
creek a number of strong companies are engaging in extensive hy-
draulicking operations and there is little doubt that the season's
clean-up of placer gold in that district will be one of the largest in
its history. For the first time, the big silver-lead showings in the
vicinity of Omineca river will be worked by enterprising and experienced mining men, with the probability that the old placer district will in a comparatively short time rival the other silver-lead
camps of Omineca District.'
On Nine-mile, Four-mile and Glen mountains the properties
which have been worked during the winter show good results,
while quite a number of others will soon be under development.
Two of the mines are already shipping ore, and another producer
will be added to the list within a few days. The projected completion of the Nine-mile wagon road will enable the owners of several
promising groups to carry on work without the disadvantages under which they have heretofore labored. On the adjacent showings of Glacier creek and Rear river considerable work will be done.
On Rocher de Boule mountain the copper deposits which have
attracted so much attention are being steadily developed, while arrangements have been completed for the opening up of a number
of very promising groups in the immediate future.
The camps tributary to the Bulkley Valley towns are likely to
come into prominence, since Hudson Bay mountain properties have
been proved lo contain silver-lead ore of high grade in large deposits and the Telkwa and Babine showings promise great things.
The coal measures of the Telkwa and Morice rivers and Coal
creek will be still further developed, while several of the the companies holding large areas in the famous Groundhog field have men
and supplies on the trail, with the object of starting the season's
work early. Other concerns will begin development work on their
properties as soon as the pack trail is open.
Taking a large view of the situation, the prospects for the season are most encouraging. There is no doubt that 1913 will be the
first of many prosperous years for the mining industry of the great
district of which Hazelton is the center.

UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT
"TEMPERED" COPPER -
NOT-HOST ART
Ancient Tools Were Made of
Copper and Tin Alloy Hardened by Hammering
-T	
The old fable about the ability
of the ancients to temper copper
as we now temper steel, so that
copper knives with a sharp cutting edge could be produced, has
been often disproved, but still
frequently crops up. Its probable origin is now shown by Walter Gowland, a distinguished
English metallurgist and emeritus professor at the Royal School
of Mines, as well as an antiquary
of note. Professor Gowland
proves that it is possible to make
bronze very hard by hammering,
and that the sharp prehistoric
knives of "tempered copper"
were really of bronze with hammered edges. He shows also
that the ancients smelted bronze
directly from ores of mixt copper
and tin, so that they may not
have been aware of the fact that
it is an alloy. We quote from an
account in The Mining and Scientific Press, which say:
" Walter Gowland, at a recent
lecture in London, showed that
during the early metal age, and
even later, bronze was not obtained by melting metallic copper
and tin together, but by the reduction of oxidized copper ores
containing cassiterite, or of copper ore to which cassiterite ore
was added. It is important that
this fact should be recorded, seeing that |some modern metallurgists allege that such a process is
impossible, and that whenever
tin and copper ores are melted
together the tin does not unite
with the copper but passes into
the slag. These allegations were
evidently not founded on experiment, but on erroneous deductions from the methods of smelting in use at the present time.
" In order to determine the
possibility of producing bronze,
Mr Gowland constructed a simple
furnace consisting merely of a
hole in the ground. In this he
treated a mixture of 15 pounds
of malachite, containing 30 per
cent, copper, and 10 pounds of
cassiterite ore, containing 20 per
cent, tin, together with charcoal
and limestone. On the conclusion of the reaction, the slag and
remaining fuel were removed
and the metal allowed to solidify.
An analysis of the metal showed
78 per cent, copper and 22 per
cent. tin.    A series of experi
ments were undertaken with
varying proportions of the ore,
and in every case copper-tin alloys were obtained. The second
point raised by Mr. Gowland referred to the supposed lost art of
tempering bronze. < In the old
days the bronze castings for tools
and weapons were hammered at
the cutting edges to produce the
right degree of hardness and
temper. No other method was
ever employed, such as heat
treatment. The same effect can
be produced on modern bronzes
by hammering, and in fact an
even greater hardness can be obtained. Thus the notion that the
art of tempering bronze has been
lost is a fallacy."

New Seed Regulations
Editor Miner:���This is the season when farmers are securing
their seed supply for the coming
spring. The importance of using seed of high vitality and free
from weed seeds cannot be too
strongly emphasized. Very often in the past, farmers, through
ignorance of the quality of the
seed they were using or for some
other reason, have sown weeds.
During the past two years the
Dominion seed branch has been
endeavoring to effect improvements in the seed trade by educational work with seed dealers
and farmers, supplemented by
the enforcement of the Seed Control Act. This act defines the
commercial grades of seeds. All
timothy, red clover, alsike and
alfalfa seed offered for sale by
either wholesaler or retail merchant must be graded and marked
Extra No. 1. No. 1, No. 2 or No.
3, according to quality. Seed
that will not grade No. 3 cannot
legally be sold except for export
or for cleaning. This latter
clause applies to farmers as well
as seed dealers. Farmers selling
seed that is below grade No. 3 to
their neighbors for seeding or to
dealers on the understanding
that it is to be retailed for seeding without recleaning, are liable
to prosecution, and every effort
will be made to apply the act to
farmers as strictly as to seed
merchants.
Paper packets of vegetable
and flower seeds must be marked
showing the year in which they
are filled, and farmers and others
purchasing such seed should see
that all packets are so marked
before purchasing.
Seed grain, clover and grass
seed, as well as root and vegetable seeds, whether in sealed
packets or in bulk, must be capable of germinating in the proportion of at least two-thirds of
the legal standard for good seed
of that kind. Seed that will not
germinate in this proportion
must be plainly marked showing
the actual percentage of seeds
capable of germinating. Farmers having or purchasing seed
the vitality of which they have
reason to suspect should have a
germination test made of a sample of it.
Seed grain, flax, white clover,!
grasses   and   all   other forage;
plant seeds must be free from
noxious weed seeds, or be label-;
led showing the names of thel
noxious   weed   seeds   present, j
The above are the outstanding
features of the Seed Control Act
of Canada, and if persons pur-
chasing seed insist on the observance of the above  rules,  they
will not only obtain a seed of a
superior quality but will do much
to   ward  off an  infestation of
their farms by. noxious weeds.
All persons so wishing it may
have their seeds tested free of j
cost at the Seed Laboratory, Cal- j
gary, Alta.

The people of Bulkley Valley
are, naturally, much interested
in the projected townsite at Mile
226, where the railway company
will establish the divisional point,
The Miner is informed that the
name of the new town will be
Bulkley, that being the name
favored by the people of the dis
trict. Aldous & Murray state
that arrangements have been
made for the installation of a
sawmill and complete woodworking plant. The Seymour Lake
Lumber Co., which has been
formed to carry on the business,
has the plant ready for shipment
from Vancouver as soon as the
the railway is in operation to the
townsite. The company has secured the standing timber on the
townsite. Another concern
which will operate in the town is
the Bulkley Valley Construction
Co., which will undertake building work of every description,
as well as concrete and cement
work, carrying a large stock of
building material, including
coast fir for finishing purposes.
The. contracting firm of Smith &
Eggleston will act as agents for
the company pending the establishment of the business. The
people of the valley expect great
developments when the new
town is opened. The country
immediately tributary is one of
the best agricultural and mineral
sections of Omineca district, and
will easily support quite a population in addition to those dependent on the railway payroll.
