HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1912
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
IN MT MORNING FIRE
Buildings Owned By Hudson's Bay Company
and Broughton & McNeil a Prey to the
Devouring Element���Persistent Work Saves
Adjacent Buildings���Heavy Loss
The most disastrous fire in Hazelton's history occurred early
this morning, when two of the
Hudson's Bay Company's warehouses and the large warehouse
of Broughton & NcNeil were
burned to the ground. The
strenuous efforts of a large number of citizens, aided by the lack
of wind, prevented the further
spread of the flames.
At three a. m. D. J. McDougall
noticed the glare of the fire and
promptly rang the alarm. The
firemen and a crowd of volunteers were soon upon the scene,
and finding that the fire had attained such proportions that
there was no hope of saving the
two large warehouses, they gave
their attention to the adjacent
buildings.! Forming bucket brigades and using the chemicals,
they succeeded in confining the
fire to the warehouses. Unremitting work for over an hour,
within a few feet of the flames,
Mining News of Week
During August, Mining Recorder Kirby issued 71 miner's
licenses, recorded 116 claims and
26 agreements and transfers,
and issued 158 certificates of
work.
R. G. Steele is in from Hudson
Bay mountain. He has received
high returns from assays of ore
recently uncovered on the property of the Hudson Bay Mountain Mining Company.
On the Coronado group, in the
Hudson Bay camp, R. J. McDonell
has a crew at work erecting
camp buildings. Mr. McDonell,
who has just returned from this
promising property, states that
five men will be engaged on development work during the winter.
Angus Stewart, A. L. McHugh
and D. McLeod, the principal
owners of the Silver Standard,
visited the property during the
week. Mr. Stewart informed
The Miner that the bottom of the
shaft showed a larger body of
ore than ever, which means that
the mine has attained a safe
position in the bonanza class.
Paddy Higgins has brought in
some exceptionally rich ore from
the Silver Dollar group, three
claims, located at the head of
Driftwood creek, 14 miles from
the railway, and owned by himself and W. P. D. Pemberton.
The ore carries considerable native silver, with gray copper and
galena, and assays show high
values. Paddy says the ledge is
traceable for 2,000 feet and he
has stripped it lor 300 feet.
Steady progress is being made
in the development of the
American Boy group, and the
Harris Mines are getting a nice
lot of high grade ore ready for
shipment. At a depth of forty
feet, the shaft on number one
vein shows thirty inches of nice
ore, which is improving in appearance. On number three vein
a drift is being run to the north
at the 175-foot level. The face
is now 17 feet from the shaft
and shows twenty inches of ore,
of which a foot is clean enough
for sacking as it is hoisted.
was required before the adjoining buildings were safe. The
Union Bank was slightly damaged. At first the destruction
of the building seemed inevitable, but the staff, assisted by
volunteers, checked the flames.
The Riverside was practically
undamaged.
As yet the total damage is unknown. The heaviest loss falls
on the Hudson's Bay Co. The
large building contained many
tons of merchandise. Manager
Graham expresses his hearty
thanks to the many volunteers
whose good work resulted in the
saving of the store and the
smaller warehouses adjoining it.
McDonell & McAfee, of the
Ingineca hotel had a large
amount of goods in the Broughton & McNeil warehouse. The
rapid spread of the fire prevented
the salvage of the greater part
of their property.
The origin of the fire is as yet
a mystery.
Latest in Warships

a separate department be created.
Mr. Stevens is now in Ottawa.
President Hovell, of the board
of trade, yesterday received the
following telegram from Colonel
Lowther, aide to the Duke of
Connaught:
"Mr. Chamberlin informs me
visit to Hazelton itself quite impossible, as return same day to

The Labor Day celebration of
this year goes down into history
as the most successful event
ever held in Hazelton. All the
townspeople turned out, while
many visitors from the Bulkley
Valley and Prince Rupert gathered to see the games and sports.
On Monday a program of races
and jumping was carried out,
the contests being close and exciting. In the first race, the
100-yards dash, Hetherington,
the undisputed champion of the
Northern Interior, met several
speedy sprinters, including Watts,
the pride of Prince Rupert and a
pedestrian of no little class. The
local man, although a little short
on training, ran the visiting
sprinter to a tie in the excellent
time of 10 3-5, according to the
dockers. The prizes were divided. The coast contingent fully
expected their man to win, but
he did not have the necessary
speed.
In the 220-yards race Hether-
ington's only opponent was
Carss, of Prince Rupert, who
finished a creditable second.
The 50-yards dash was won in
good style by Tibbals, of Telkwa,
with Watts close up.
��� After running a waiting race,
Moore won the mile by a sprint
on the last lap, Ives, of Prince
Rupert, taking second place from
McVittie.
The two-mile event was won in
splendid style by Mobley, of
Prince Rupert, Moore being the
contender in an exciting finish.
The   running   hop,  step  and
j jump was won by Carss, with 40
I feet, Tibbals being only an inch
short of that mark.     Carss also
won the running broad   jump,
with 19 feet 4 inches.      Hetherington took second place.
The Ball Games
Admirers of a good fast article
of baseball were served with the
real thing in the last two games
of thc year in the series between
Hazelton and Telkwa.     It is to
be much regretted that the baseball supremacy of the two towns j
is not yet established as Telkwa
took the first game by a score of i
6 to 8 and the locals annexed the
second by the same score.     This'
gives each team two games.
Hazelton lost the first game
largely through poor work at the
receiving end, the visitors steal- j
ing bases at will and scoring a
couple on passed balls. The
: second sacker also contributed a
bum peg that allowed a couple
to trickle in. Nail pitched a good
game for Telkwa, forcing 17 of
the locals to whiff the ozone,
striking out two men with the
bags crowded upon two occasions.
, Owens kept the bingles scattered,
the visitors earning only one run
and Hazelton earning all of!
theirs. "Daddy" Owens also
hit the longest drive ever regis-
tered at the local ball yard, cop-j
ping one of "Judge" Noel's $12;
sweaters thereby. It was sure
some blow. He duplicated in the
second game but owing to age
and embonpoint was compelled
to pull up at third to let out the
strings and adjust his steam
gauge.
The Score Reversed
The second game was full of
: fine fielding nnd good pitching
|and it was anybody's game until
the eighth inning when Owens
picked up his cudgel and laid old
Betsey up against the leather for
three bags, ambling home a
moment later on Sinclair's slash-
double to left. They cinched
the game with two more runs
later. Owens pitched a grand
game, letting the visitors down
with five measly hits. Holt,
who caught the second game,
kept the runners tied to the bags
and turned the speedy boys back
from second by ten feet when
they did attempt to steal.
The Scores:
FIRST GAME
Telkwa 6     9    1
Hazelton   -   -   -   -    3   10    5
Batteries:   Nail and Cameron,
Owens and Lofquist.

Batteries:   Nail and Cameron,
Owens and Holt.
Big Mit Thumps
Owens had Cameron, the Telkwa catcher, completely at his
mercy in both games. The "old
fox" had something on the ball
besides the cover.
"Single-O" Holt throws his
lamps, his body or the ball right
at the bag as the occasion demands. Too bad his all around
ability wasn't discovered sooner.
That first name would have been
just as good as all sewed up,
iced and gunnysacked with the
"Human Catapult" taking "Father" Owen's slants and ramming
the ball around the bags. Ht
can pitch like you see in the pictures if necessary. He leaves
for Seattle next Sunday and the
fodder league loses a top salary
catcher.
The Spud Grabbers have asked
for another series at Telkwa during Fair week but the team is
all shot to pieces at present so
we can't be represented at the
doings.
In an abortive attempt to steal
second in Monday's game, Jim
Riley, the ever-ready, had" the
misforture to dislocate his ankle.
Although the play was hardly
justified, Jim's punishment was
rather too severe, as he will have
to use crutches for several weeks.
Visitors Entertained
In the evening the citizens entertained the visiting ball-players
and athletes at the Omineca
hotel, where a tempting spread
was prepared. The supper was
of an informal nature, the
speeches being few and brief.
The visitors expressed gratification at the excellent treatment
accorded them, and congratulated
the Athletic association on the
great   success of the occasion.
An excellent dance in the auditorium wound up the celebration.
School Election
All citizens should attend the
public meeting on Wednesday
evening next, called for the
election of school trustees. None
will deny the importance of the
proper administration of the
school, and it is to be hoped that
there will be a large attendance.
The meeting will be held in the
schoolroom at 8 p. m.
Panama Canal Damaged
New Orleans: Over a million
cubic yards of gravel were swept
into the great Culebra cut in the
Panama Canal by slides.
Alleged Bank Robber
Committed For Trial
(Special tee The Miner)
New Westminster, Sept. 5: -
Charels Dean, accused of complicity in the robbery of the Bank
of Montreal here last year, was
brought from Los Angeles under
extradition proceedings and was
today committed for trial. Evidence was given to the effect that
Dean had been seen here frequently in the automobile which
was used to carry away the loot
of the record bank robbery. Sir
Hibbert Tupper, who represented
the prisoner, submitted no evir
dence in reply to that of the
prosecution. The case for the
Crown was in charge of E. P.
Davis, K. C.
BRITISH COLUMBIA IS
THE PREMIER PROVINCE
Leads in Timber, Says Speaker
at Forestry Convention Opened
in Victoria by Premier.
(Special tee The Miner)
Victoria, Sept. 7:���Every province of Canada and many states
of the American union were represented here on Wednesday,
when the forestry convention
opened with an address of
welcome to the delegates, who
numbered over a hundred, by
Sir Richard McBride. The premier referred to the provincial
commission on forestry, a valuable body, whose report had been
received with interest in many
parts of the world.' Its findings
had resulted in drastic reforms
being incorporated in the provincial forestry laws. British Columbia, said Sir Richard, now
had in its service the best technical forest men on the continent. A change also had come
over the railways, which in the
past had not always been solicitous of the preservation of the
preservation of the forests. The
province had already received a
revenue of approximately $14,-
000,000 from its forests, and this
amount would be largely increased in the near future.
Premier Fleming, of New
Brunswick, dwelt on the value of
such conventions.
President Hendry commended
the steps taken by the B. ('.
government for the conservation
of its forests. It is, he said, the
premier province in timber
wealth.
Valuable papers on various
phases of forestry and conservation were read on Thursday and
yesterday, many tributes being
paid to British Columbia. Dr.
Fernwood favored the establishment of a school of forestry in
this province.
Defaulter Found Guilty
Vancouver, Sept. 6: ��� Richard
Ogilvy, a clerk in the Merchants
Hank, was today found guilty of
theft and conspiracy against the
bank. He will be sentenced
later. M. M. Cox, ex-teller in
the same bank, serving three
years for the theft of $0,000,
testified for the Crown.
Horror Restores Speech
Kamloops.   Sept.  4: - Andrew
Forsyth, a deaf mute for fourteen
| years, suddenly regained his
! speech and  hearing when John
Edmunds jumped from a moving
I train to his death.   Forsyth saw
him and screamed.    "Something
inappe*l in my head," was his
I only explanation.

foreign nations and not to native
ships. The American answer to
unofficial suggestions of arbitration of this disputed point is that
this is a domestic question solely,
and so not subject to International adjudication. Britain
will probably make formal application for reference to The
Hague.
It was natural to expect that the social groups in Canada
would welcome a Royal Governor General. It would be idle to deny
however that there was some apprehension that the Duke and
Duchess of Connaught would not so easily acquire popularity with
the masses of the people. The apprehension was mistaken. There
is always something in the hereditary ruler which does not find expression in the subject. It is the sense of caste, however much
concealed, the result of training for exclusive duties, the fact of
dedication from birth to the obligations and dignities of a separate
order. Something of this is suggested in the present circumstances,
but Canadians discover that the effect is not to discourage sympathy and intimacy between the Governor General and themselves.
Indeed there never has been greater simplicity at Rideau Hall, nor
less restraint and exertion in official entertaining. The atmosphere
of Government is natural and wholesome.
But it is not easy to maintain the balance between social groups
in Canada. In Great Britain there are said to be three based of distinction,���(1) family and culture: (2) intellectual eminence in all
fields of intellectual activity: (3) money. It is possible however
that in the present day in the United States and in Canada this
order has been reversed or is being reversed. If wealth deliberately
sets itself to the task it can conquer any social position. It is alleged that we are concerned only with where a man finishes, not
where he begins. But let us apply the tests of worth and service
to the achievement. There is of course no necessary dissociation
between wealth and character, nor between wealth and culture.
It is thought by some that with the rapid increase of wealth in
Canada only high example, faithful teaching, and the mercy of God
will save us from the grosser excesses of civilization. It is well
therefore that wholesome simplicity reigns at Government House,
Ottawa. It is well that there is an unobstrusive disposition to exalt art and music and to dignify culture and achievement. Yet
there is no rash disturbance of standards nor any assault upon established social ascendencies. But there is a wide and grateful recognition of interests and activities which ordinarily receive only the
perfunctory patronage of fashionable society.
But let us get away from the narrower circles of social groups,
let us get to the masses. The present Governor General seems to
have secured their goodwill without striving and without adulation. He is recognised as being simple, natural and companionable,
without condescension in manner, without hint of patronage. There
is, it is true, a touch of reserve in his speeches: are the speeches
less sincere on that account ? The most radical journals recognise
that the duke is not plotting any imperial aggression upon the
autonomy of the Dominion nor undermining democratic ideals by
any new social regulations or exactions. Some of us realize more:
that the monarchy is the very bulwark of empire, and our faith is
strengthened by the example and activities of the Duke and
Duchess of Connaught.   Elstree.
Their Peculiar Ways
Nelson, Sept. 2:���Doukhobors
in British Columbia are unwilling
to register births, marriages and
deaths because they fear that
compulsory military service may
be introduced in Canada, and
that the government would have
records through which the Doukhobors could be compelled to
serve. This was the statement
made by Peter Veregin to Commissioner Blakemore, who was
appointed by the Provincial Government to investigate the conduct and manner of living of the
Doukhobors.
Veregin is leader of the sect,
and declared that in the whole of
Canada about a thousand Doukhobors had broken away from
the community. These, he declared, had become British subjects and drunkards, meateaters
and generally degenerates.
To travel nude, as do some of
these people, Veregin said, was
in accordance with the teachings
of Christ. Unfriendliness toward
the government was shown by
the leaders on account of a bridge
which he declared the authorities
had failed to build at the colony
at Brilliant on the Columbia
River. He gave this as one
reason why the Doukhobors did
not become British subjects.
Another was that they wanted
to be free, to be citizens of the
world.
He admitted that his people
had no formal marriage ceremony, and kept no records of
marriages, births or deaths.

Suez Canal Dues and Rates
By Elitret
It was officially announced
early in August that on January
lst the dues levied by the Suez
Canal Company will be reduced
to 6 francs 25 centimes per ton.
Thus another 5d will be knocked
off the tolls, which will then
stand at the lowest point ever
recorded. The canal itself has
been all the time the subject of
great work in deepening and in
widening its main channel, until
in width it is double what the
present writer knew it in 1887
and in depth it is some 4 feet
deeper, as it would seem: to resume. It is usual to describe
these reductions as concessions.
So they are in one sense. The
Suez Canal Company is an independent enterprise, subject to no
real extraneous control, and the
company can levy what dues it
thinks fit. Therefore it might
easily have kept the toll at 9
francs a ton, as it did through
all the long years from 1893 to
1902. In that ten years period
however the company's transit
receipts grew from 70,000 francs
to 103,000 francs. It was clearly
time to cheapen the canal, and in
1903 there was a reduction of 50
centimes. Three years of the
lower rate only brought more income. Another 50 centimes was
taken off in 1906, and that and
the ensuing four years showed
exactly the same result, more
business and more transit receipts.
It was In 1911 that the transit
dues were reduced to 7 francs
25 centimes a ton, and yet the
transit receipts jumped from
130,000 francs to 134,000 francs.
But it must be remembered that
more lately than ever before the
shipping trade has been in a
healthy condition, otherwise perhaps the recorded increases would
have been impossible. The widespread manenttradedevelopments
served by the Canal are also permanent, and not transitory, as
yet.
M. de Lesseps looked forward to
a time when the Suez Canal dues,
the dues of Ms canal, would be
but 5 francs a ton. If this rate
is hereafter accomplished, it may
be that the Panama Canal of
years to come will be faced with
the financial position that it the
Panama Canal will be an expensive route for commerce, if
said commerce can come by Suez.
The Hay-Pauncefote Treaty
The Hay - Pauncefote Treaty
between the United States and
Great Britain with reference to
the neutrality of the Panama
Canal provides: ���
"1. The Canal shall be free
and open to the vessels of commerce and war of all nations observing these rules, on terms of
entire equality, so that there
shall be no discrimination against
any such nation or its citizens or
subjects, in respect of the conditions or charges of traffic or
otherwise. Such conditions and
charges of traffic shall be just
and equitable."

Ottawa, Sept. 2:-The Governor-General's   match   was  concluded amidst considerable  excitement.    Entering the second
stage one man,  Captain Hayes
of Quebec,  had  105, and the redoubtable  Captain    Crowe,   of
Guelph, had 104.   At 800 yards,
Hayes scored 32 and Crowe 33,
making them even at 900 yards.
Each scored 34 and they   led the
I field by three points,  with 171

To Prevent Collisions
London, Sept. 4:���An invention
which will considerably minimize
the danger of collision at sea
during fog, has been tested and
found to be very satisfactory.
The invention is a wireless recorder which will accurately re
cord the positions of any ships
sounding sirens in foggy weather.
Should it prove as successful
in practical use as it has proven
by experiment, it appears as
though there will be little chance
of damage or loss of life by collision.

some week, but is now able to
travel.
According to latest Constantinople despatches, peace negotiations between Italy and Turkey have been broken off.
The Allan liner Mongolia ran
aground in the Mersey last Saturday. She has since been re
floated without serious injury.
The city of Norwich, England,
was partially flooded as a result
of the prolonged storms last
month, Bridges and buildings
were swept away.
The national subscription for
the purpose of purchasing a fleet
of aeroplanes as a gift to Emperor William, reached the sum of
$1,500,000.
The British ship Criccieth Cas
tie was abandoned after being
disabled July 15, last, near Falkland island, in the South Pacific.
It is believed several members
of the crew were lost.
The story cabled to America
to the effect that the Prince of
Wales and his brother, Prince
Albert, would pay a visit to the
Duke and Duchess of Connaught
in Canada, is officially denied.
Their Royal Highnesses, the
Duke and Duchess of Connaught
and Princess Patricia quietly departed from Toronto last week
for their tour of the west which
will require five and a half weeks
to complete.
The dock strikers at Antwerp
attempted to burn the Finland of
the Red Star line, which carried
the American Olympic team to
Stockholm. The flames were
quickly extinguished with only
slight damage. This is the third
attempt at arson since the Red
Star dockers struck two months
ago.
A succession of robberies and
holdups in the mining districts
tributary to Fairbanks has
aroused indignation to such a
pitch that plans are on foot for
the organization of a vigilance
committee to hunt down and
summarily punish the desperadoes responsible for the reign of
terror.
F. E. Smith, M. P., assistant
Unionist leader, has landed in
New York and will tour Canada.
In his first interview he is quoted
as saying that the Liberal party
is the Old Country is doomed;
that Home Rule will drag Asquith
and his followers down to defeat.
Regular meetings of the Dominion cabinet will soon take place
to prepare the sessional programme for the coming session,
which is most important, involving as it wiil the expected redistribution bi.ll, amendments to the
Bank Act, the naval policy question, as well as matters of general policy. Just when the House
will meet is not definitely known,
but that the session is to be a
long one is certain.
W. D. Scott, Dominion immigration superintendent, said at
Vancouver that 51,843 immigrants came to the provinee during the fiscal year ending in
March. No less than 6083 Chinese paid the $500 head tax to
enter Canada, adding more than
$3,000,000 to the revenue of the
Dominion of which this province
derives fifty per cent. Mr. Scott
estimates that fully 400,000 immigrants will come to Canada
this year.
"In New York city last year
there were 119 cases of homicide,
while in London, with a far
greater population, there were
only nineteen," says Judge De
Courcey, of the Supreme Court
of Massachusetts, who is chairman of the American Prison
Association's Committeeof Criminal Procedure. Then he adds:
"In the United States punishment for crime is slow and uncertain; in England it is swift
and certain."
The conciliation board appointed by the Dominion government
in the dispute between the Canadian  Pacific Railway  and     its
station agents and telegraphers
has entered a decision  granting
a ten per cent,   increase,   to  bej
divided among the agents and
operators as their services may|
warrant.    The decision is a com-1
promise,   and   it   is   likely  will1
prove acceptable to both sides.
At the launching of the Canadian Pacific steamer Empress of
Russia the chairman of the
building company said that the
question of safety at sea had
been much before the public of
late. This new vessel is so constructed that in the event of
anything unforeseen occurring
she would float with any of her
four compartments flooded, instead of two compartments,
which had been the board of trade
standard of safety hitherto, and,
as far as he was aware, this was
the first merchant ship launched
in this condition.
The antagonism shown by the
doctors of England against the
national insurance act continues
unabated, and there seems to be
little prospect of any solution of
the deadlock that ensued following the refusal of the government to raise the physicians' fee.
At the present time there are
only thirteen medical men in
England who have expressed
their willingness to advise the
government under the terms of
the act.
Italy is so provoked by the procrastinating and evasive attitude
of Turkey in the conduct of
peace negotiations that she has
determined to strike a decisive
blow in the Tripoli war. Accordingly twenty thousand more
troops are being despatched to
make an effective attack on the
Syrian coast, and they will carry
out a scheme of offensive operations that will not be discontinued until Turkey is brought to
terms.
Sheep for B. C.
Ottawa, Sept. 2:���The committee from the Dominion Sheep-
breeders Association, which was
appointed by Hon. Martin Burrell
to investigate the state of the
sheep industry and to report on
it with a view to encouraging it,
has completed its work in the
maritime provinces and British
Columbia. There have recommended the holding of sales of
pure bred stock in these provinces, and R. H. Harding of Thorn-
dale, Ont, one of the greatest
sheep experts in the country, is
engaged, at the present time, in
making purchases for the sales.
A meeting of the committee
was held in Ottawa this week,
when they conferred with officials
of the department, discussed the
whole question and decided to
hold sales in the maritime provinces the latter part of September, and in British Columbia in
October. The committee was
enthusiastic over the prospects in
British Columbia. They are
great stretches of country ideally |
located for such sheep raising. |
The market is almost unlimited
and prices are high. At present,
large quantities of New Zealand
mutton are being shipped into
British Columbia and the other
provinces.
Great interest was also taken
in the work of the committee in
the maritime provinces and there
promises to be a revival in the
industry, which in recent years
has been steadily declining.

Peking, Sept. 2.���Events of supreme international importance
have taken place, seriously affecting China's future and justifying
lithe belief that a of partition
the country is nearer than it has
ever been before.
Recently China has been endeavoring to recover Tibet,

ary one, considering that Great I
Britain thrice previously acknowledged China's suzerainty in Tibet.
"Such hectoring diplomacy,"
the Chronicle says, "is something
new and is decidedly unpleasant.
In has the appearance of being
the result of Russian suggestion.
Has Russia agreed to keep out of
Tibet in order to secure acquiescence in her Mongolian
schemes?"
China Stands Firm
London, Sept. 2:���The Chinese
government has handed a note
to the British legation rejecting
Great Britain's demands that
Tibet be not incorporated into a
province of the Chinese republic,
says the Daily Telegraph's Peking
correspondent.
The same correspondent says
that Dr. Sun Yat Sen, ex-provisional president of the Chinese
republic, in an interview, denied
he was going immediately to the
United States or Europe to raise
a railway loan.
May Move Capital
Peking, Sept. 2:- Dr. Sun Yat
Sen, in the course of an interview
today, openly expressed fears
that Japan would take aggressive
action in Manchuria, and showed
himself pessimistic concerning
China's ability to save the eastern provinces. He said it was
necessary for the government's
safety to remove the Chinese
capital, owing to the probability
of Japan's taking Manchuria and
thus coming within striking distance of Peking.
Should hostilities break out,
Peking's capture would be certain, he said, and such an event

J. B. Bran,   - -   Proprietor
at L'Hasa, who shall advise the
Tibetans on questions of foreign
policy and shall be protected by
a bodyguard of Chinese troops.
The note recommends the
drawing up of a new Anglo-
Chinese agreement, which it
makes a condition to the recognition by Great Britain of the
Chinese Republic.
Russia has, almost simultaneously, told China she will not
permit any expedition  to enter
I Mongolia.   The Russian demand
; that the northwestern expedition
be   abandoned indicates clearly
that Mongolia is absolutely gone.
The Chinese are exceedingly
agitated.      Realizing that they
jare facing the actual loss of their
tremendous dependencies, they
have   asked the Germans  and
.French their intentions in Shan
i Tung and Yun Nan respectively.
Russia   and   Japan    recently
! reached a general agreement regarding China and the Chinese
���: feel that Japan will move forward soon.
London, Aug. 30:���Great Brit-
tain's policy in regard to Tibet is
that it recognizes China's suzerainty over the country, but not its
sovereignty.
China, it is pointed out, only
attempted to enforce her alleged
sovereignty over Tibet when the
Dalai Llama fled to India after
the British expedition of 1904.
Tibet, however, which was practically independent, thereupon
drove out the Chinese army of
occupation.
The British Government is of
the opinion that a fresh Chinese
invasion would be accompanied
by acts of great cruelty towards
the Tibetans. It also considers
that British interests warrants
the stationing of a British agent
at L'Hasa.
The outcome of the present
situation may be the drawing up
of a British - Russian - Chinese
agreement for the preservation
of the autonomy and neutrality
of Tibet.
Great Britain's policy is
severely critized in this morning's
Liberal newspapers. The Chronicle contrasts the British solicitude for Tibetan independence
with her passive acquiesence in
the destruction of the independence of Persia. The newspapers described the demand of the
British minister at Peking that
Tibet be allowed to manage its
own affairs without the interference of China, as an extraordin-
practically end the war. Nan
king or Wuchang, he thought,
could be more easily defended.
The Baldheaded Future
Log Angeles, Sept. 3: -Within
500 years there will scarcely be a
hair on any woman's head, and
men will lose their hair 200 years
before that time, declared Prof.
Carlton B. Wells, an eminent
brain specialist of Paris, who is
here on his first visit to the
United States in twenty years.
"Baldness will be the fashion
for both men and women," he
continued. "The development
of brain power of the human race
will precede the loss of its hair,
and to have curly locks will be a
reflection on the intellect of the
wearer some hundred years
hence."

Boy's Terrible Death
Flint, Mich., Sept. 1:��� In the
the presence of hundreds of people fourteen - year - old Chester
Betts, son of Bert N. Betts, of
Flint, was accidentally caught by
the guy rope of a balloon yesterday and carried about 2,000 feet
in the air before the rope untangled and hurled him to his
death, He crashed against the
roof of a barn, and was still alive
when spectators reached him, but
soon expired.
The tragedy occured at a
county fair, and when the balloon
and aeronaut shot upward, many
people thought the youth dangling at the end of a rope was a
dummy. The heroic efforts of
the balloonist to rescue the boy
disclosed the truth to the crowd
below.
As the big gas bag crept higher
and higher, the aeronaut, in peril
of his own safety, could be seen
working desperately to pull the
dangling form to the trapeze.
Finally the rope swirled away
from the lad and the tiny form
dropped.

INTERNATIONAL
BOUNDARY SURVEY
Alaskan Line Will be Completed
This Season, Save for Ninety-
Mile Gap
Vancouver, September 3:-"We
expect to complete the Alaska
boundary work with the exception of a gap of ninety miles between Mount St. Elias and Mount
Natazhat by the end of the season," said Dr. W. F. King, CM.
G., who is now visiting the city.
"Survey parties are now working
the final leg to the Arctic, the
Canadian party being under J.
D. Craig. They are working
along the 141st meridian. The
section between Mt. St. Elias
and Mt. Natazhat is very difficult
of access and we are leaving it
over until we can determine the
best means of getting at it. A
United States -party is making a
preliminary survey, having gone
in from Valdez, and we will
await its report before we decide
what we will do."
Dr. King explained that the
Alaska boundary demarcation
had been conducted under two
conventions between Great Britain and the United States. The
first, in 1904, provided for the
marking of the coast boundary
from the Portland Canal to Mount
St. Elias.and the other in 1906,
dealt with the line along 141st
meridian from Mount St. Elias
to the Arctic ocean. Then, in
1908 a general treaty was made
providing for a joint survey and
resurvey of the boundary between Canada and the United
States from the Atlantic to the
Pacific. Of the last work all
has been done with the exception
of what is knowrr*as the Ashbur-
ton line in Quebec and the Maritime Provinces, a part of which
is being surveyed for the first
time. The line from Lake Superior to the Lake of the Woods,
400 miles altogether, is being
marked for the first time. This
will occupy the two governments
some years.
From 1904 up to the end of the
present season approximately five
thousand miles of boundary line
territory will have been surveyed.
On this work altogether the
Canadian government has now
five parties engaged. J. D.
Craig has charge of the party
working along the 141st meridian
to the Arctic: W. G. Ogilvie's
men are engaged in southeast
Alaska; J. J. McArthur's branch
is surveying between Lake Superior and. Lake of the Woods;
Thos. Fawcett and A. J. Braba-
zon are working along the Ash-
burton line and on the St. Croix
lakes.
Mexican Raid in U. S.
Douglas, Arizona, Sept. 2:���
Mounted messengers representing Rafael Campa, leader of the
rebel band, rode into the mining
camp here and demanded its
surrender. Campa's followers
are camped fourteen miles west
of the camp. Another force is
reported to be riding in from the
east. The camp is well provisioned. Refugees are flocking here
on special trains. H. C. Beau-
camp, general manager of the
Transvaal Mine, reports the mine
looted by rebels. J. S. Hunter,
the store manager, was held for
ransom, which was paid and the
Americans arranged for an
armistice. Assistance was asked
of the federal troops" at Agua
Prieta, opposite to Douglas, and
was refused.
Immense Fire Losses
Toronto, Ont, Sept. 2:~ That
Canada's fire losses this year will
be greater than ever was forecasted in the report submitted
by Manager Heston to the insurance commission of the Canadian Manufacturers' association.

corresponding period of 1911.
The figures are as follows:
For the first seven months.

The Phantoms of Klappan
He blew in from the North, just a few days ago;
Dog-tired and hungry; his face full of Woe.
It's a long, lonely mush from Blackwater lake;
But Sweeney, adventurer, had a yarn to relate���
He crawled into Black Jack's; the gang crowded''round:
Jim Riley and Davis, O'Neill and his hound,
Scotty, the tailor, and Blackwater Pete-
All eyes were on Sweeney, a hero whose feats
Were known in the North to man, woman and child
(But Sweeney, being modest, when asked only smiled.)
He called for refreshments; then started this tale
Of the phantoms he'd seen on the Blackwater trail.
��
"A lot of you ginks remember the year
"When 'The Klondike or Bust' was all you could hear;
"How millions were made in a night or a day,
"And all men were seeking the easiest way
"To that northern land of ice and snow
"Where fortunes were made or lost on the throw
"Of a single die, or the turn of a card ���
"Another drink, boys, my throat's getting hard���
"You no doubt recall how hundreds of men
"Went over this trail, from the Ashcroft end.
"Packhorses they had, both female and male
"And they ditched the whole bunch on the Blackwater
trail."
"Since the early fall of ninety-eight
"They have lived on the range of Klappan lake,
"And the herd has grown from a measly few
"To a thousand or more ���Yes, a million or two,
"They wear parkas and they make babiche,
"And they fill their own 'shoes' and their youngsters
teach
"The ways of man, so they will know
"How to keep on the trail when the north winds blow.
"Well! one more drink, and I'm on my way;
"For back I go, ere another day
"Breaks over the hills of my faraway goal,
"Or those horses will jump my claims of coal."

A Few Walk-Over Facts
The hides from 700 cattle are used every day in
making just the soles for Walk-Over Shoes.
The skins from over 1,341,000 smaller animals are
used yearly for upper leather to say nothing of all the
1,368,000 square feet of patent leather lhat is also required.
It takes eight mammoth factories with a capacity of
20,000 pairs of shoes daily to supply the world-wide
demand for Walk-Over Shoes. That means mciit, docs
it not?
