STRIKE IS
Mine Employes to the Number of Eight Hundred Thousand out for Increased Pay
MAY PARALYZE INDUSTRY
Millions of Workers Will be Involved if
Strike is not Soon Ended���Still a
Possibility of Early Arrangement of
Difficulty���Strikers   Orderly
London, Mar. 1:���The threatened general strike of coal miners
was inaugurated yesterday. Eight
hundred thousand men went out
when the day shift came out of
the mines. The expected settlement through the good offices of
the government was not announced. Labor leaders say the
strike will be orderly and there
will be no need of troops. The
miners are asking seven shillings
and sixpence a day.
There still appears to be a
prospect of a break in the deadlock between the miners and the
operators. Should efforts to end
the strike fail, millions of persons
engaged in many trades will
suffer. Should the strike be prolonged for any great length of
time it will bring British industrialism to the verge of economic
chaos.
Manson Endorsed
(Special to Thc Miner)
Prince Rupert, March, 2:-A
mass meeting of Conservatives
last night heard Wm. Manson on
the work of the session. The
meeting was a grand success.
The member outlined the appropriations for the district which
were the largest ever given and
also the largest for any district
in the whole province.
At the conclusion of the address, amidst enthusiasm, a resolution of confidence in Manson
was unanimously carried. Mr.
Manson stated that he was prepared to act as representative
again if the Conservatives of the
district so wish. He will be
endorsed unanimously by Prince
Rupert Conservatives who are
enthusiastic over the prospects.
As far as reports have been received here from outlying parts
Manson is the unanimous choice
there also.
Noted Statesman Dead
Toronto: Hon. Edward Blake,
former leader of the Liberal party
in Canada, and for some years a

To Institute Reforms
In Yukon Territory
Vancouver, Mar. 1:���George
Black, the new commissioner of
the Yukon, has arrived from
Ottawa and will sail for Dawson
on March 9.
Governor Black says he will
make radical changes in the personnel of his official family, a
number of Liberals holding office
in the territory having been
offensively active in the last campaign. The election for the
Yukon council will be held in
April, on the completion of the
new lists of voters. As far as
possible, the injustices of the late
Liberal administration will be remedied. It has been found that
large tracts of valuable placer
mining' ground were taken from
the use of the miners of the territory and given to political
favorites as concessions. These
cases will be investigated without delay.

(Special lo The Miner)
Victoria, Feb. 27:���With the
customary ceremony, followed by
the singing of the national anthem
by the members, the legislature
prorogued at four o'clock this
afternoon.
During the session sixty-two
bills passed out of seventy-three
introduced. Included in the
slaughter of the innocents was
Parker Williams' bill respecting
the fortnightly payment of
wages. In this connection the
premier announced the government intended to appoint a royal
commission to enquire into labor
conditions in this province.     He
and attorney-general will leave
Victoria to open the campaign
with a tour of the interior. The
first meeting will be held in
Kamloops on Wednesday, followed by meetings at Revelstoke on
Thursday, Golden on Friday and
Nelson on Saturday evening.
Other cities in Kootenay and the
Boundary district will be visited
during the following week. After
a fortnight's absence the ministers will return to the coast, the
premier coming to Victoria and
the attorney-general devoting his
attention to the campaign in
Vancouver.

Justice Carbonneau, who upholds

which was contested under the
Ne Temere decree. The judge
holds that any officer authorized
to solemnize marriages can marry
any two persons who observe the
ordinary formalities, including
the obtaining of a marriage license, no matter what their religion may be. Under this decision the much-discussed decree
has no effect as against the civil
code.

Fraser Townsite Dispute
Ottawa, March 1:- The board
of railway commissioners has
ordered the G. T. P. to provide
station facilities at Fort Fraser
when it reaches that point. If
the railway does not do so of its
own accord "We will try and assist them a bit," said the chairman. The order was made on
the application of the Dominion
Stock & Bond Corporation, of
Vancouver, which has the town-
site on the east side of Fraser
lake. The applicants told the
commissioners of the railway
company's overtures, which were
not entertained. The railway
people then intimated that they
would go on the other side of the
lake. Still later, when it was
found that the road would have
to cross the land of the applicants, the railway decided to
develop a townsite of its own,
sixteen miles away, at the other
end of Fraser lake, thus detracting from the value of Fort Fraser.
The order of the commissioners
followed this surprising recital,
That the Copper River coal
field is of more direct importance
to Hazelton than Groundhog is
the assertion of Amos Godfrey,
the well known coal operator.
Mr. Godfrey is by no means inclined to belittle the great Upper
Skeena field, in which he has
large holdings, but in his opinion
the coking qualities of the coal
contained in the nearer measures
will prove of inestimable importance in the development of this
mineral district, as the coke may
be transported to smelters in the
Bulkley valley by a short railway
without adverse grades. Copper
River coal is the only coking
product within reach, is of high
quality, and the supply in sight
is ample for all mining and
metallurgical purposes in Omineca for many years.
The proximity of the coal to
the mining camps of the Telkwa,
Hudson Bay mountain, Babines
and Skeena, and the fact that the
same railroad which would carry
the coal would also tap many of
the mines and limestone deposits,
make it apparent that the coal
mines which are being developed
by Mr. Godfrey and his associates will play an important part
in the development of this district.
Mr. Godfrey will leave on Monday for Groundhog mountain, to
look after thc interests of the B.
C. Anthracite Coal, Ltd., and
other companies in which he is
interested,   v

Dissolution of House
(Special to Tho Miner)
Victoria, Feb. 27: -The legislature has been dissolved, and the
administration will go to the
country on the general record of
the government, especially seeking endorsement of the railway

the premier. The election is
called for March 28. Nominations will be held on March 14.
The election will be held on

Vancouver, Feb. 29:���About
two hundred delegates are in attendance at the provincial Liberal
convention which opened here
this afternoon. Among the prominent oppositionists present are
John Oliver, Hon. Wm. Templeman, H. C. Brewster and Duncan
Ross. Oliver is presiding officer
and Mcintosh, o f Vancouver,
secretary.
Vancouver has fifty delegates,
Victoria forty ancl Prince Rupert
eight.
The sole topic of discussion at
today's session was the question
of the tactics to be employed in
the present campaign. Many of
the delegates were outspoken in
condemning the expenditure of
money in contesting the election,
holding it to be worse than
wasted. Several speakers urged
the party to refrain from offering candidates.
The Platform Framed
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, Mar. 2:���Midnight
saw the close of the provincial
Liberal convention, which adopted a new platform and decided
to contest every constituency in
the province.
H. C. Brewster, the present
opposition member, was elected
president of the association, and
will lead the Liberal party in
the contest. Dr. Kergin, of
Prince Rupert, is one of three
vice-presidents. G. R. Naden and
Duncan Ross are members of the
executive committee for Comox-
Atlin.
The chief planks of the platform on which the Liberals will
oppose the government are the
immediate construction of the
Peace River railway, not only to
Fort George, but right to the
Peace, and the connection by
rail of Vancouver Island with the
mainland. The bare proposal
was put forth, with no details as
to show how the proposed work
is to be financed. The decision
was arrived at after much dis-
decussion. Those who demanded details were silenced.
Other planks in the platform are
woman suffrage, local option, a
government labor department
with free labor bureaus and state
accident insurance. The latter
was advocated by Duncan Ross,
and although meeting with
strong opposition was finally
adopted. Ross said that on his
tunnel payroll the insurance companies demanded premiums of
seven per cent. In all there are
thirty planksin the platform. The
government is condemned for
practically its entire administra-
! ive policy, especial umbrage be-
j ing taken at the calling of an
' election on the November voters
(lists and without redistribution.
\ Templeman, Oliver and Ralph
Smith all took a rap at the ad-
I ministration. "McBride has asked
j us to fight with our feet shackled
and our hands tied" said Ross.

COAL NOTICES
Province Will Endorse McBride Administration
On March 28, the date fixed for the general election, the
people of British Columbia will be given an opportunity to express their opinion on the general record of the McBride administration and the new railway policy recently announced. The
result of the election is a foregone conclusion. So strong is the
prevailing sentiment in favor of the policies of the present government that many delegates in the Liberal convention at Vancouver
on Thursday urged that efforts to contest the election would be
worse than wasted.
The progressive railway policy, including a program of construction which will in a few years furnish transportation to many
of the newer portions of the province, must be favored even by the
Liberals, while the other planks of the McBride platform are also
certain to meet the wishes of a very large majority of the people.
One of the most popular innovations promised by the government
is the reform of the present antiquated system of taxation. The
poll tax is at last to be done away with, and other exactions will
be removed or reduced, in accordance with the recommendations
of the tax commission.
The campaign will not be unduly protracted, as only a fortnight will elapse between the official nominations and the day of
polling. In Skeena district there will probably be no opposition to
the Conservative candidate, unless Duncan Ross, who engineered
a rally of the Prince Rupert Liberals the other day, decides to
contest the seat.

Mining authorities who have

one-half of that having been produced in the last ten years.
The Same Old War Cloud
Belgrade, Feb. 27:-The prospect  for the coming spring is
viewed  with   increasing anxiety
here.      In   the   best   informed
quarters, both native and foreign,
it is feared that the growing anarchy in European  Turkey  may
lead to serious  com pli cations  as
soon as the respite afforded by
the present severe weather comes
to an end.   The first outbreak of
trouble is anticipated on the side
of Northern Albania,   the usual
period for the renewal of disturbances in this country  being now
only a few weeks off. The tribesmen are already  exasperated  at
! the refusal of the government to
allow a discussion of their griev-
; ances in the chamber; the dissolution and the return of the deput-
i ies to their respective districts
I seem likely to increase  their indignation and to prompt them to
seek 'redress by other than con-
��� stitutional    methods.    Notwithstanding the   severe   cold,   the
i bands     in    Northern     Albania
increase from day to day,  and

Amendments to Coal Act
Among the new legislation is
a bill to amend the coal and
petroleum act. The law now requires that a coal or petroleum
claim shall be eighty chains by
eighty chains. The minister proposes to take power to vary these
measurements wherever the contour of the country renders this
necessary, but not so as to make
the size of the claim substantially more or less than 640 acres.
Provision is also to be made for
renewal of lapsed licenses by
payment of an additional twenty-
five dollars within three months
after the license has regularly
expired. Another clause gives
the minister power to cause a
survey to be made of any lands
held under coal or petroleum
license and to charge the cost of
such survey against such license.

Ernest Terah Hooley, who was
i one  of the leading men in the
financial world of London a few
years ago, was sentenced to one
year's    imprisonment    on   the
charge of obtaining money  by
fraudulently representing as free
of encumbrances some property
' he had sold.   Hooley was one of
the leading financiers in England
, from 1890 to 1898, when he was
declared    bankrupt.     In    1896
Hooley launched a tire company
1 and made a profit of $12,500,000.
[ He owned many race horses and
yachts, including the racing cutter Britannia, formerly the prop-
! erty of King Edward, and he possessed    also   several  historical
country houses.   After his bankruptcy   he was  known as the
"splendid bankrupt," as he con-
' tinued to live in princely style on
money which had been placed in
his wife's name.
Acting with the permission of

being rapidly advanced for the
initiation of the prison farm system, which the experience of
New Zealand has shown to be of
great practical advantage in the
reformation rather than the
punishment of prisoners who
cannot be regarded as hardened
offenders. The site selected for
the farm and new central prison
is in the vicinity ol Burnaby lake.

Do You Realize
that in a town such as NEW HAZELTON
will be, in order to own the best property you
must be on the inside?
Six or seven blocks in the business center
of any town or city always command the
highest figures. Outside this radius property
values decrease in direct ratio "as the distance
from this center increases.
Get in the business
center
In NEW HAZELTON this business center will be created by the Old Hazelton Business Men themselves. To any who have not
already bought we advise immediate action,
as outside buyers are quick to realize this
point and are snapping up lots surrounding
where Old Hazelton people have bought.

Get in the business
center
Now, you may say, "I'll wait. I may
not want to continue in business in this district, or if I do, I may be able to get in
cheaper after awhile."
In answer to such an argument we would
say that every indication points to an era of
prosperity for this district undreamed of before. HAZELTON is on the tip of everyone's
tongue all over the continent, and a rush of
population and capital to this district is assured for the coming spring. You know we
have the resources and attractions to keep
them here.
Only one time-
that's now
So if you buy now, on the inside of NEW
HAZELTON, you will be protecting yourself;
for even if you do not use your property yourself, you will be able to sell, at a handsome
profit, to someone who does. tSfi OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY. MARCH 2. lf>12

Government Expert Gives
Mining Men His Views
On   Groundhog    Railway
FIELD IS 70 MILES LONG
Malloch Reads Interesting Paper on
Upper Skeena Coal Fields Before
Mining Institute at Vancouver���Three
Possible  Routes for Railway to Coal
One of the principal features
of the recent Mining Institute
convention at Vancouver was the
reading by G. S. Malloch, of the
Geological Survey, of a paper on
the Groundhog coal fields.
He spoke optimistically of the
deposits which had been found
and treated the matter of railway
transportation to and from the
field in a comprehensive manner.
He said that he had gone carefully into the subject and discussed not only the anthracite
character of the coal, but the
possibilities of profitable mining.
He outlined three possible routes
fora railway to reach the fields.
The shortest would be from
Stewart, at the head of Portland
Canal, a distance of about ninety
miles. This line would pass
through the Naas valley.
Another line was possible over
somewhat the same territory.
A railway from Hazelton to
to Groundhog Mountain would be
150 miles in length and a grade
of one per cent could be obtained.
In crossing either of the passes
from Bear River valley to the
Naas country a grade of from
two to three per cent would be
required. This line would reach
water transportation in ninety
miles.
"Groundhog coal extends
northwesterly in long strips for
seventy miles,"said Mr. Malloch.
"The thickness of the deposit is
upwards of 3,000 feet. The coal
is contained in commercial quantities near the top and bottom. It
is anthracite in character. In all
the seams examined veinlets of
of quartz and calcite traverse the
coal in different directions.
There are too few openings to
estimate the amount of foreign
material."
too busy preparing for the fall
elections to bother about the welfare of their fellow-citizens in the
North.   I look for lively times in
the North this summer if President Taft and his advisers do not
grant,  tentatively at least, some
form of relief to appease public
indignation.     Even last season
there was a considerable movement  of  population   back   into
| British territory, and I should not
: be at all surprised, in  the event
; of relief not soon being granted
j to see a veritable stampede set in
, this  spring  to the  unexplored
I regions   of   the   Yukon   which
| afford the same opportunities to
the prospector as Alaska does.
"Just before I left the North
there was talk of extending the
Alaska Central Railway into the
Canadian Yukon in order to tap
immense coal fields discovered
last year in British territory,
within forty miles of the boundary line. The owners realize that
they are free to mine and export
this coal without official interference because they will be operating in British territory. Meanwhile all the valuable coal fields
in Alaska are held up by Washington 'red tape' and the coal
used in Alaska has to be shipped
all the way from Vancouver
Island."

Cordova Mining Man Says
Agitation is More Than Idle
Talk���Cannot   Develop
"I can assure you that the
agitation throughout Alaska in
favor of political union with
Canada is no idle talk. The
movement is gaining ground
everyday, but just how it can be
realized it is difficult to say."
This was the statement made
to the Vancouver Province by
John Rogers, a Cordova mining
man.
"It has become a by-word in
the North," he added, "that the
poor man can not get a square
deal, and that title to coal and
mineral claims can only be secured through the influence of
Washington lobbyists. This is
probably the reason why some of
richest natural resources have
passed under the control of
groups of capitalists. The old-
timers like myself are fully aware
that the administration of the
mining laws in Alaska forms a
lurid contrast with the square
methods in vogue in the Canadian Yukon. On the British
side of the line the law is plain
and is enforced to the letter The
poor man in his application has
got just as good a show as the
capitalist or the rich corporation.
"From what I could learn in
Seattle there seems to be no
prospect of securing relief at this
session of Congress. The politicians on both sides seem to be
London, Feb. 26:��� Bertram
Stewart, the London lawyer con-
i victed of espionage at Leipsic,
has been sent to the fortress at
Glatz in Prussian Silesia, where
Captain Trench, another English
spy, is imprisoned. Stewart's
father writes indignantly to the
Times protesting against credence being given to the untested
assertions in a Hamburg newspaper of Rue, the Belgian informer, whom he calls a rascal
and traitor.
Rue's wife, it seems, is an
attractive Irish lady, who was
deserted by her husband two
years ago ancl is now proprietress

at Berlin says Rue has been continually in the pay of the secret

MINERAL WEATII OF

The engineering expert of the
Daily Telegraph, in a review of
the influence of iron on world
power, says:
"Canada is a land where iron
ore is found in abundance; where
the forges and the furnaces are
rising up and at night are lighting up the shores of the great
lakes which stretch from the
head of Superior down to Nova
Scotia. The potentialities of that
wonderful country are amazing,
because of those fires, which will
surely never be allowed to die
out.
"In this area of acceleration,
this period of rapid development,
it is not too much to suppose it
probable many of us now living
will see Canada the main bulwark of the British Empire. Not
because of its fruit orchards, and
waving cornfields���important as
they are���but because of the
manufacture of the iron and steel
which even now are demanded
for the necessary development of
the thousands of miles of railroads.
"Some enterprising British engineering firms have already
made arrangements to establish
branch factories and works in the
Dominion. The great nation to
the south imports the iron ore and
the pig iron, but it were better
for the future of Canada as a
nation if all of it could be worked
at home. We are not here dealing with economic theories of
trade exchange, but simply applying the lesson of history.
"It is really astounding that
the mineral wealth of Canada has
only been appreciated in the past
two or three decades. Men now
living can remenmber that practically all of its inhabitants,
except those engaged with the
Hudson's Bay Company and the
other traders, were engaged in
agriculture or fishing. Now the
iron age has dawned in Canada���
what is to be the result? It most
certainly means that, as the
manufacture of iron and steel inj
creases in Canada, so will that
portion of the British Empire rise
in importance.
"They are far sighted men who
believe that the day will come
when, because of the iron ore in
Canada, that Dominion will become the most important centre
of the Empire."

Possible War on Pacific
A gloomy prophecy   as to the
probability   of conflicts in   the
j Pacific Ocean was made by the
well known lecturer on military
strategy, T. W. M. Maguire, at a
meeting of the Royal Colonial In-
[ stitute,   London.     Mr. Maguire
described the Pacific Ocean as
the"strategic center of mankind" j
and   warned   both   the  United;
[States and Great Britain "that
[ nothing could give them security
| but a race of military  men,   asj
j with nations like Germany and j
I Japan it was a word and a blow."
I The yellow races, he said, were
going   to  demand   equality  of
treatment. Japan was at present
| Great  Britain's  ally,   but  that
'. would only last so long as British
i alliance was worth having. Great
Britain's territory in the Pacific
Ocean, he said were by no means
safe,  and  the  Japanese might
attack and defeat the Americans
any day.

In Buying Business Lots
Be sure you buy in the Mercantile District.     At New Hazelton that district is
Section One���OUR Property.
Section One, New Hazelton
The Business District
���
i
The best business property in every town is always some distance
away from the depot. This is the case in New Hazelton. Section
One will be the Best Business property.
The Hazelton people themselves have bought in Section One and
all who have started business in New Hazelton are in Section One or
just across the line. Those who have planned for early moving will
be located in Section One.
The first Business District always remains a Business District.
It is next to impossible to move the district from where it first started.
It has started in Section One and that Section is being Rapidly Built
Up.       The business will stay in Section One and that is the place to
buy.
The Northern Interior Lanr1, Company own Section One and Section Three. The prices of lots are now as low as they will ever be.
They are liable to advance any day.
Buy your Business Lots in Section One NOW. In another year
they will be more than double in price. This is your opportunity.
You missed Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, and other big
western cities. Don't miss New Hazelton. It is and will continue
to be the distributing point for the vast Northern Interior.
Prices of Lots Range from
$100 to $1200 each
These prices are only good for a short time.

A Goose Bay Deal
One of those who made lucky
strikes in the Goose Bay camp
last season was C. W. Calhoun,
of Hazelton. Mr. Calhoun, with
G. R. Mackay and T. T. Dunlop,
holds seventeen claims, on which
there are numerous showings,
including one which resembles in
some of its characteristics the
lower vein on the Rocher de
Boule. This lead has a sixteen
foot showing of ore, occurring on
a granite-porphyry contact. The
vein carries two distinct varieties
of ore, the wider body being
chalcopyrite carrying gold, and
the smaller silver-lead. Assays
up to $215 have been obtained.
S. W. Woodall, a Vancouver man
who is now in Hazelton, has completed negotiations which will
probably lead to the acquisition
of the property by a stock, company, the first in that camp. The
present owners will retain interests.

GONE BEFORE
There's a newmound in the graveyard
A deep and narrow bed;
And loving hearts are grieving
And mourning for their dead.
A husband's heart is empty now,
Life's plans seem all in vain;
Tho smiling face that cheered him on
Has left this earthly plane.
Yes; fold with tender earo the robes
Her loving fingers wrought.
She has changed for robes immortal
The fading ones you bought.
You wee]) beside the new made grave,
You kneel und kiss the sod;
But think, O stricken husband���
Your loved one rests in God!
Yes; safe from sickness;  safe from
pain;
From sorrow, care, and sin;
Safer than those without the fold
Are the blest who have entered in!
Strive not to check vour tear-drops.
Let them fall like summer rain;
For a beam of hope shines  through
them���
You shall sec your wife again!
Yes; weep, but with exulting
That a rare, bright gem you've given
To receive a glorious setting
In the diadem of Heaven!
