 VOL. II, NO. 3
HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1912
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
First Smelter Checks for Hazelton Ore Will be Received By Harris Mines
CARLOAD IS NOW READY
Pack Train Make. First Trip with Ore
from Mine Today Surprise Tunnel To
Be Driven Three Hundred Feet Further-Drifting To Ore Body     A
The first stope in the Hazelton
camp has been started at the 100-
foot level in the No. 3 vein of the
Harris Mines. Twenty-five tons
of first-class ore is already sacked
and ready for shipment. The
pack train of forty animals engaged for the freighting of the
company's ore to the railway
will makes its first trip today.
Development on the property
continues to give favorable results.
On the Surprise group, adjoining the Silver Standard, work is
being continued in the drift on
No. 1 vein. This vein was cut
by the crosscut tunnel, 200 feet
in. The drift is being run for
the ore shoot which crops a short
distance away. A contract has
just been let for a 300-foot extension of the tunnel, which is to
be at least 625 feet long. It is
expected that Na 2 vein will be
encountered within a very short
distance. Ten men will be employed within a week. The additional buildings necessary for
the accommodation of the increased crew are nearly completed.
Dr. D. A. Condor writes to
The Miner from Kitselas, stating
that a remarkable strike of silver
ore has been made on the Wells
group, located on Gold creek, six
miles from Kitselas. The Doctor is very enthusiastic regarding
the future of the mineral industry in that promising district.
Copper River Coal
Coal mining activity in this
district is by no means confined
to the Groundhog field. On Copper river there is a group of 75
claims, controlled by the Copper
River Coal Syndicate, on which
much development work has been
done, with highly satisfactory results. A party of engineers is
expected to leave Hazelton next
week to survey these claims.
Frank Johnson's pack train will
load up on Tuesday at Cunningham's with the last of the winter
supplies for the camp. F. B.
Chettleburgh superintendent of
the property, who is now in Hazelton, will leave for the scene of
operations in a few days, to lay
out the winter's work.
Three Trains Wrecked
Rochester, N. Y., Sept. 15:���
Dense fog was responsible for a
disastrous wreck on the New
York Central railway at East
Rochester early this morning
when three freight trains came
together, killing three men and
and seriously injuring two others
and causing a property loss estimated at $150,000.
A fast freight train from the
east crashed into a freight that
was in the block waiting for
orders, the engineer having failed
to see the danger signal, sent
back with a flagman. About
twenty heavily loaded cars were
piled up.
A minute later a fast freight
train from the west tore its way
through the wreckage.
Wires Are Down
Forest fires in the vicinity of
South Bulkley are responsible for
the failure of telegraphic communication since yesterday. For
the first time in a year, The
Miner is today in the unfortunate position of being unable to
furnish the late news despatches.
Freight Service
Given by G.T.P.
As promised by Superintendent Mehan, the G. T. P. has
inaugurated a freight service
from Prince Rupert to the present end of steel at Sealey. The
first trainload was ready for delivery on Tuesday, and the local
freighters have been busy during
the week bringing much-needed
supplies to the local merchants.
No warehouses have been erected
at end of steel, but on the laying
of the track to South Hazelton a
permanent freight depot will be
established across the river from
Hazelton. Plans for the South
Hazelton station will be considered by the railway board at its
next sitting.
FINE WEATHER FOR
BULKLEY EXHIBITION
Favorable Auspices for B i g
Event In The Valley���Large
Attendance Expected
The Bulkley Valley people are
favored with beautiful weather
for their first annual exhibition,
which is being held today. There
is a long list of entries for the
handsome prizes which are offered in the various classes; a large
crowd will likely be in attendance, and there is no doubt the
praiseworthy efforts of the promoters of the fair will be crowned
with success.
Among the notables who are
in attendance are H. S. Clements,
M. P., Government Agent Allison and W. H. Robertson, of the
provincial department of agriculture.
E. H. Hicks Beach accompanied
Mr. Clements, while quite a
number of Hazelton people took
advantage of Wiggs O'Neill's
special trip with his auto stage
this morning. Among other passengers were W. W. Wrathall,
J. S. Cline and K. K. McLauch-
lin.
Expert Visits Fair
In addition to securing a provincial grant of $200 in aid of
the Bulkley Valley Fair, Wm.
Manson, member for Skeena,
succeeded in having the agricultural department send one of its
experts, W. H. Robertson, to
attend the exhibition at Telkwa
today. Mr. Robertson will remain in the district for some
days, to meet the farmers in
consultation and to inspect the
agricultural developments in the
Bulkley Valley. During the week
Mr. Robertson looked over the
gardens in the vicinity of Hazelton, and expressed his gratification at the evidences of fertility
and favorable climatic conditions
observable here.

Aspersions of Kelly Agent���Grand Trunk

and Develop Townsite Chosen by Citizens
Famine in France
Paris, Sept.  17:���Hunger and
suffering stare the poor in the
face during the coming winter
here, the frigid summer, wet and
sombre, having ruined the crops,
from bread to wine.   The news
has   been published  broadcast.
j The price of bread, now the highest on record,  will go higher,
' wine will be scarce for poor and
rich; potatoes ditto.   Never has
' Europe seen such a summer.
Believing in the superiority of
the official townsite of the G. T.
P. at South Hazelton, immediately across the Bulkley river
from the present town, and being satisfied that, eventually,
that will be the permanent town.
The Miner gives space to the letter which follows:
Editor Miner: My attention has
been called to an article appearing in the organ of the New Hazelton townsite promoters, entitled "New Hazelton is the ideal
Site," in which I find several
statements which I know to be
inconsistent with the facts.
In this article Mr. Clements,
agent for the Kelly townsite and
member for this constituency, is
quoted as saying that on his first
visit to Hazelton, during the
election campaign of last fall,
the people of Old, Hazelton were
unanimously in favor of New
Hazelton.
So far as those who were most
closely in contact with Mr. Clements during his election trip to
Hazelton can recollect, he m'"ie
no effort to ascertain the attitude
of the Hazelton people with regard to the townsite situation,
which was not then being considered by them, so that such a
statement coming from him will
not be given credence by anyone
conversant with the facts.
The article goes on to say that
Mr. Clements, acting as agent
for the Kelly townsite, had
offered the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway company a half interest
in the New Hazelton townsite on
the understanding that there
should be no other station in the
district, and that in a subsequent
interview with Mr. Chamberlin,
president of the  Grand   Trunk
Pacific, that gentleman had stated
that he did not want to go to
South Hazelton; that he preferred Ellison anil had only considered the former after three
months hesitation.
The facts arc these: Mr. Clements wired to Mr. Biggar asking if a compromise could not be
effected between the two town-
site companies and requested
Mr. Biggar to take the matter
up with Mr. Chamberlin and to
advise him by wire of their decision. In reply he received a
wire to the effect that both Mr.
Chamberlin and Mr. Biggar
agreed that it would be to the
advantage of the district to have
but one townsite and that
they were of the opinion that
everyone should work together
for the advancement of South
Hazelton. That New Hazelton
was impossible.
It is hard to believe the statement that Mr. Chamberlin said
he had only considered South
Hazelton after three months
hesitation, when it is remembered
that contracts were signed by
the railway company and the
original owners of the South
Hazelton townsite within two
weeks after Mr. G. U. Ryley,
land commissioner of the G. T.
P., had personally inspected the
sites of both New Hazelton and
South Hazelton and had decided
upon the superiority of the latter.
The article further states that
Mr. Sanders and Mr. O'Brien,
presumably acting for the G. T.
P., were very anxious for an
amalgamation of all interests and
that the station be built on lot
852 insteadrjof 851; that they
were willing to throw down the

Lives Endangered
by Fools with Guns
When the fool with a gun
comes into notice, it is usually as
the result of the death or wounding of his victim. His first appearance in this vicinity was,
fortunately, without serious
outcome. On Sunday last Fred
Daniels, who was resting after a
strool to Sealey lake, was shot at
by a "hunter", whose name has
npt transpired.
In the immediate vicinity of
Hazelton there is nothing for the
hunter but grouse and rabbits,
and the man who shoots at any
movement in the brush should be
locked up on the first manifestation of his mania.

A. S. Gray Burned Out
The residence of A. S. Gray, a
prominent farmer of Cedarvale,
was burned to the ground at an
early hour on Sunday morning.
On Saturday evening Mr. Gray
had crossed the Skeena to visit
the Stronach ranch, where he intended spending the night.
About 2 a. m. they were awakened by a flare of light from the
Gray premises and hastened
across the river. On their arrival
they found that the flames had
gained such headway that it was
impossible to check them, and
the building and contents were
completely destroyed. M r.
Gray lost practically all his belongings, including a considerable sum in cash.
The cause of the fire is unknown. Mr. Gray says there
was no fire in or about the house
when he left in the evening.
Undismayed by his loss, Mr. Gray
has gone to Prince Rupert to
purchase a new outfit, and will
soon resume business at the old
stand.
Rev. John Field, rector of St.
Peter's church, left on Thursday
for Prince Rupert, where he will
attend the Anglican synod, which
convenes on Sept. 24. In his absence Rev. W. H. Petter, will
conduct services. Mr. Petter who
has been assistant to Bishop Du-
Vernet for some time, will remain in this district and engage
in mission work.
Big Vancouver Terminals
Vancouver, Sept. 16: Plans
for the tunnel under the city of
Vancouver, beginning at the foot
of Burrard street, on Burrard
Inlet, and running to the False I
Creek yards, are being drawn by
the C. P. R. preparatory to their
being presented to the Railway
Commission for approval. This
tunnel has been mentioned several times in conferences between
the C. P. R and the city. It is I
considered as a means of doing
away with the present street
crossings in the middle of the
city. The plans were first
sketched about two years ago,,
but were never seriously consid- i
ered until the present time. Es-I
timates as to the cost of the tun- j
nel are being prepared, and these
are to be forwarded to Winnipeg
j for approval in the near future.
j The tunnel is planned to be
j double tracked and about 4,500
feet in length. It will be about
thirty feet below the surface of
the streets in the nearest to the
surface portions and about fifty
feet in the farthest from the
surface portions. The cost will
be in the neighborhood of $2,-
000,000.
Paris, Sept. 16:��� The recently
negotiated Franco-Russian naval
convention and the older Anglo-
French convention relating to the
Mediterranean seaboard are to be
brought into practical operation
within a few days, when tht
French fleet, which has hitherto
had headquarters at Brest, is to
be permanently transferred to
Toulon.
This naval move gives France
complete control in the Mediterranean over any possible combination of the Triple Alliance, and
will leave to England the defence
of the North Sea, while Russi:i
guards the Baltic Sea.
Experts point out that with the
Russian fleet in the Baltic the
strengh of the British fleet will
be materially increased against
any contemplated German attack,
while the English Channel is
considered to be sufficiently defended by the numerous fleets of
destroyers and submarines
sta tioned on both the French and
English coasts.
Member Inspects Roads
Wm. Manson, M. L. A., with
District Engineer Baxter, made
a tour of inspection over the
Bulkley Valley roads as far as the
Bulkley summit, returning to
Hazelton on Monday. Only the
necessity of being in Prince Rupert to assist, in his official capacity, in the welcome to the Duke
of Connaught, prevented his remaining to attend the fair at
Telkwa today. He assured the
Bulkley people that, as member for this district, he would do
all in his power to ensure the
success of this and succeeding
exhibitions. While in Hazelton,
Mr. Manson made arrangements
for further work on the Nine-
Mile road, to allow ofthe hauling
of ore during the coming winter.
James Atkins, a miner employed at the Silver Standard,
fell to the bottom of a 25-foot
shaft on Monday, sustaining severe bruises, but no serious injuries.
The regular fare from the present ond of steel at Sealy to Prince
Rupert, and back, is ,$11.75,-8
reduction in expense which those
who have made the journey in
earlier years will appreciate. For
a party of ten or more travelling
for the Connaught reception a
reduced return fare of .$9.40 will
be changed.
COAL EXPERTS
Engineers Who Have Been
Examining the Groundhog
Measures Will Arrive
INSPECTED MANY CLAIMS
Season's Work Covered Large Area of
Anthracite Coal Land In Celebrated
District Reports Anxiously Awaited ���
Much Work Accomplished
The Groundhog coal field has
been much in the limelight
throughout the season. Much
has been said and written of the
great coal measures of the north
district, and now, it is to be
hoped, those interested in the
measures and the people of the
province generally will soon learn
from authorative sources, what
the future prospects of the district are. In addition to the
prospecting and development
work which has been prosecuted
during the summer by the Amalgamated, the B. C. Anthracite
Coal, and other big concerns,
there has been a thorough examination of the field, from geological and economic standpoints.
G. S. Malloch, of the Dominion
geological survey, has continued
his work, covering the newer
portions of the coal area. Wm.
Fleet Robertson, provincial mineralogist, has inspected the field
in behalf of the provincial de-.
partment of mines, and two
parties of engineers, acting for
the Vancouver capitalists who
have invested so heavily in the
district, have been engaged in
experting the coal measures.
Messrs. G. W. Evans and Gus-
tav-Grossman assisted by Messrs.
H. E. Taylor and G. N. Lowen-
thall respectively, have examined
335 claims on the Skeena, Stikine
and Klapan slopes for the Amalgamated Groundhog Anthracite
Coal syndicate of Vancouver.
These claims were staked by
"Groundhog" Jackson, Bob Macdonald, A. E. Falconer, H. Corner and Thomas Hankin.
Mr. Evans also examined the
B. C. Anthracite Co's. property
situate on the upper reaches of
the Skeena in the vicinity of
Trail, Currier, Jackson, Telfer
and Langloisycreeks. This property adjoins the claims held by
Mr. McAvoy.
The engineers are expected to
arrive in Hazelton this evening.
While local men interested in
various parts of the big coal field
are quite naturally anxious to
learn the character of the reports
which will be presented, it is not
to be expected that anything will
be made public until after the
experts have reported to their
clients, the owners of the groups
on which they conducted their
examinations.
The party, consisting ot 22
men, has enjoyed the finest of
weather, the climate being identical with that which has been
experienced around Hazelton. It
will be no especial treat for the
boys to get fresh meat in town,
as cariboo and goat meat has
been plentiful and at times when
the larder was shy a feed of
"whistler" could always be procured.
A general meeting of citizens,
called in the interest of the fire
department, will be held at 7:30
this evening in the rooms'over
the drug store. There should be
a large attendance. Business of
importance will be introduced. THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1912

H. S. Clements "As a Business Man"
H. S. Clements, member of parliament, for this district, arrived
in Hazelton on Thursday. According to the mouthpiece of the New
Hazelton promoters, he declared that "as a business man" he had
come to the conclusion that New Hazelton was an ideal townsite.
Mr. Clements' divergence from the opinion generally held by the
people of Hazelton is easily understood when it is remembered that
"as a business man" he is the agent for one of the New Hazelton
townsites. He has been fighting, with energy and persistence
worthy of a better cause, for the interests of his principals, and
it was only to be expected that on his first inspection of the town-
site he should express a favorable opinion of it. No importance
will be attached to Mr. Clements' declaration by people who have
taken the trouble to investigate the merits of the townsite question.
The Hazelton station, which will be established shortly at the point
most convenient for the people of the present town, on Lot 851,
will attract all who are in a position to decide for themselves which
is the best site for the railway town which is to replace Hazelton
on the map. If our Dominion member has lost prestige through
his connection with the townsite dispute and the inevitable conflict
between his duty as the people's representative and his interests
"as a business man," he will himself be the chief loser. His unethical conduct may somewhat complicate townsite matters, but
will not, in the final outcome, vitally affect the issue.

British Columbia is beginning
to send her products to many
parts of the world. Her lumber
goes to every quarter of the globe
and the flour to widely scattered
ports. Her fruit is known the
world over, and her old horse
shoes go to China for some dark
purpose. Now a use has been
found for the scraps of tin left
around the canneries after the
salmon cans are manufactured.
Germany supplies the children of
the world with cheap toys, and
in the manufacture of these odds
and ends of tin are needed.
British Columbia has come to the
fore, and is suppls 'ng some of
this. The steamer Celtic of the
Coast Steamship Company is
bound to Vancouver from the
Skeena and Rivers Inlet with
some 5000 cases of canned salmon
and a shipment of 40 tons of
scrap tin which will go to the
toymakers of Germany.
COAL NOTICES
Railways for China
Peking, Sept. 16:���The project
for a great scheme of Chinese
railways which holds the foremost place in Dr. Sun Yat Sen's
programme for the modernization
of China, has commanded the
support of the Peking government and it may involve a great
extension of the privileges of
foreigners i n the country and
possibilities of an immense increase in Chinese foreign trade.
The, government has authorized
Dr. Sun Yat Sen, who was formerly provisional president of
the republic, to carry out a system of national railways, covering territory 70.0)0 miles in extent. Mixed Chinese and foreign
companies will be granted concessions throughout China proper
for periods of about forty years
after which time the lines are to
revert to China.
Similar concessions are to be
given to foreigners for the intermediate districts, but the lines in
the frontier provinces will be
under exclusively Chinese control and will be financed by foreign loans, apart from the other
railways. Dr. Sun's proposals
are to open up the whole of China
to foreign enterprises but to
make foreigners amenable to
Chinese laws, for which special
courts are to be established. The
government has not sanctioned
the last features of the programme but Dr. Sun Yat Sen
fully expects that they will be
approved.

A complete report of the re
ception by Hon. R. L. Borden of
the suffragette deputation in
London has just reached us. The
Canadian premier, in dealing
with the ladies of the deputation,
exhibited the firmness and tact
which might have been expected
of him. After explaining the
provincial control of the franchise, which alone would prevent
the introduction in the federal
parliament of any suffrage measure, Mr. Borden gave his reasons for refusing to express any
opinion as to the woman's suffrage movement in Great Britain,
and added:
"Now, so far as your action at
the present time is concerned, I
would like, with all respect, to
make one observation, and that
is that I think the women of
Canada are sufficiently capable
and intelligent to judge these
matters for themselves. I would
like to add that I should be most
happy to receive any delegation
from Canadian women for the
purpose of laying before me and
impressing me with their views.
"I do not want you to be led
into likening too closely the conditions in Canada with those in
the United Kingdom. I do not
profess to understand those of
the United Kingdom as well as
you do. It would be very foolish
of me to assume otherwise; but
I do know something of the conditions in Canada, and I am not
aware that the laws of Canada
in any of the Provinces at the
present time are unjust to
women. Certainly, so far as the
Dominion Legislature is concerned, we should be most eager and
willing to make any change in
the laws in that regard if it
could be demonstrated to our
satisfaction that such injustice
exists.
"You have made comparisons
between the conditions obtaining
in Canada and those of Australia
and New Zealand. I am not prepared to discuss that subject.
We have made our laws in Canada wisely and fairly so far as it
seemed possible to do so, and I
have no doubt that the legislatures of those dominions have
done the same thing. I do not
propose to dwell on the comparisons.
"Allusion has also been made
to emigration, and I have little
to say with regard to that. If it
seems good to your society or to
any other society in Great Britain
to give advice on that subject, it
is your own responsibility and
your own matter. We shall endeavor to deal with our affairs in
Canada according to what seems
to us to be just and equitable,
and the responsibility for any
action which you may take in
that regard will be your own and
not ours.
Mr. Borden then referred   to
the  suggestion   that   Women's
: Social and Political Union might
advise the  women of Canada to
, resort to militant  methods,   and
said: "I do not  know  whether I
am to construe that as a threat
'ur not."
Miss Barratt here interposed,
"Mr. Borden, it is a mere statement of fact."
"Then," said Mr. Borden,
"may I be permitted to make
this statement of fact in reply to
it? My course in public life has
been, in the past, and I hope will
always be in the future, dictated
by what I deem to be right in the
iuterests of the people as a
whole, and in the interests of
humanity, and any suggestions
of methods of any kind whatever
would not have the slightest influence upon me."
Miss Barratt.-I think it should,
Mr. Borden. If as a statesman
you arf informed that a certain
movement���
Mr. Borden (emphatically).���
No. I am perfectly willing to
listen to reasons, arguments and
suggestions, and to weigh them
with the utmost possible care.
But if I am to be told that my
political life is to be made inconvenient, or even perhaps to be
shortened, that I am to act on
this and not on reasoned judgment and in the interests of
humanity���then I tell you quite
frankly that these considerations
would not have the slightest
weight with me.
Miss Barratt���I had ventured
to hope that you would have seen
that there was reasonable argument, and that it was the denial
of this argument which has
given rise to the rebellion of
women in this country. Like
causes produce like effects.
Mr. Borden.-You will permit
me to remark that the women of
Canada will draw their own conclusions and form their own
judgments. I do not at all
imagine for one moment that
they will be wholly guided by
instructions sent from here. I
should not expect it of the
women of Canada, knowing what
I do.
Miss Barratt.���I was referring
to the members of our own society.
Mr. Borden.���And I referred
to the women of Canada as a
whole, and all I can say is that
while I am prepared to give the
utmost consideration to any reasons, arguments, or suggestions
which may be put forward, I
and my government would not,
if those considerations did not
appeal to us, be influenced by
your attitude or any suggestion
of that sort, namely, that militant
methods would be employed in
Canada, to introduce anything of
which we did not in conscience
approve.

Miss Christobel Pankhurst, who
evaded arrest when her mother,
Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst, and
Mr. and Mrs. Pethick Lawrence
were tried for conspiracy, in
which Miss Pankhurst, admitting
that she had been living in
France for six months, declaring
her intention of settling permanently in Paris, from which city
she will direct the agitation
against England.

Dundee. Sept. 16:��� A suffragette named Clunas went to the
postoffice here with a card affixed
to herself addressed to the residence where Mr. Winston
Churchill, the first lord of the

Result of Aerial Maneuvers
Shows Old Country Has
Overtaken Rivals
"HORNETS OF THE AIR"
New Arm of the Service Demonstrates
Its Efficiency���Land Forces Unable to
Cope with Aviation Corps ��� Armored
Roofs Now a Necessity
London, Sept. 16:��� In spite of
the heavy toll paid in human
life���no less than six British aviators having been killed in as
many weeks ��� military experts
declare that Great Britain has
now caught up with her rivals in
aerial war tactics. That the result of the maneuvers at Alder-
shot has been a great triumph
for the air fleet is without doubt,
and is even commented upon favorably this morning by those
papers which previously took the
war office to task for neglecting
this new arm of the service.
Every known device was used
by the land forces to cope with
aviation corps without result. It
was found absolutely impossible
to properly judge distance and
range when ordinary guns were
pitted against these hornets of
the air.
Experts who were with the
troops during the manoeuvers
declare the height and speed
obtained by the aerial fleet incalculable, and as a result the
value of this arm of the service
could not begin to be estimated.
In every experiment such as firing from light guns and dropping
bombs on imaginary camps of an
enemy, the airmen proved their
competency, rarely registering a
failure.
Aa a result of these trials the
war office has announced that the
roofs of all buildings which contain explosives at naval and military centres will, in future, be
armored. Orders have been issued to make these alterations
at once, and several di fferent
types of armor are to be tried
out in further experiments at
Aldershot. Oil tanks, arsenals
and magazines, it is now recognized, would be almost at the
mercy of an enemy's air scouts,
hence the haste with which the
war office will carry out necessary
alterations.
In the latest warships a special
armored deck has been built, designed to withstand overhead attacks. Now land defences also
are to be made secure from
damage by aerial cruisers.
HAS STEFANSSEN
FOUND LOST NORSE?
Explorer Thinks He Has Seen
Descendants of Ancient Greenland Colonists
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
H A f. ELTON
;����� ������ lem   held   every Sunday evening In   the
Auditorium al 7.90 o'clock.
Rev. i' u. McLean.
Seattle, Wash., Sept. 16;���VII-
hjlmar Stefanssen, after spending more than four years in Are-
tic exploration, has returned to
Seattle by steamer from Nome,
and told of his probable discovery
of the descendants of the Scandinavian colonists of Greenland,
who were last heard of in 1412,
and who, when trade with Greenland was resumed in the 17th
century, had entirely disappeared.
Of the so-called white Eskimos
of Coronation Gulf, Mr. Stefanssen said: "They are taller than
the Greenland Eskimos, but not
so tall as the Alaska Eskimos.
They speak Eskimo, though 1 detected some Norse words, and
they live in the typical Eskimo
way. I visited 13 groups of these
people, who numbered 2000, and
I saw 1000 of them. Ten of
these groups or tribes had never
come in contact with whites and
had not even a tradition of them.
Two tribes had tidings of the
Sir John Franklin expedition.
An old man in one tribe had seen
Captain Richardson in 1848, and
an old man in another tribe had
seen Collinson in 1853. The
thirteenth tribe had been visited
by whalers. Between the country
of the blonde Eskimo and the
Mackenzie is a barren strip of
country 300 miles wide, which is
never crossed by Eskimos."
Awaiting Proof
London, Sep. 17:��� The Chris-
tiania correspondent of The
Morning Post says:
"Telegrams announcing that
Professor Stefanssen found
traces of white Eskimos have
aroused much interest and also
some criticism. Dr. Skattum,
the ethnologist, has been interviewed. He is of the opinion
that the reports require further
elucidation. Professor Stefanssen
has not hitherto been regarded
here as an authority.
"Norwegian explorers and ethnologists, Dr. Nansen among
others, long ago recognized there
were Eskimos possessing some
characteristics o f the North
German type in Greenland and
Arctic America. It appears to be
evident that the Norwegian colon-
nists who emigrated mixed with
Eskimo tribes and amalgamated
completely with them. The existence of a whole tribe of the
northern European type and even
using several words of Norwegian
origin is held to be quite improbable."
