MEETS DEATH
Mysterious End of Oscar So-
derberg Causes Sensation
in Police Circles
FOUL PLAY SUSPECTED
Body of Mining Man Found Near Hii
Cabin in Circumstances Suggesting
Murder���No Clues
After four days' search, the
body of Oscar Soderberg, an old
rancher, was found near his
cabin, four miles from Hazelton,
on Wednesday afternoon. The
circumstances suggest that death
was the result of foul play.
On Sunday, Fred Hagen, a
friend of Soderberg, not having
seen the old man in town for
some days, went to the ranch to
see that all was well. He found
the cabin and storehouse locked,
while many of the chickens,
which were shut up, were dead.
Hagen at once informed the police, and Constables Grant and
Russell, with others, began a
search,, which did not end until
Wednesday, when Hagen found
the missing man's body in the
brush near the cabin, where it
had lain for ten days.
Coroner Hoskins ordered an
inquest, which was held on
Thursday evening, with the following jury: J. M. MacCormick,
foreman, J. W. Campbell, Alex
Chisholm, Chas. V. Smith, R. J.
Rock, Wm. Grant.
The medical evidence given by
Dr. Wrinch showed that the dead
Proving Big Coal
Seams on Morice
Local and District News Notes
An apparently reliable report
is to the effect that the diamond
drill on the Morice river coal
field has demonstrated the continuance of the big seams, having
bored through seven feet and
eight inches of coal at a depth of
734 feet. The drilling is being
continued, to prove the consistency of the formation by locating
the other seams which were
found in previous borings on other
sections of the property. The
importance to the district of the
results obtained by Messrs Jefferson and Dockrill, and A. J.
Beaudette, the mining engineer
who is associated with them, can
hardly be over-estimated. It is
now apparent that the Prince
Rupert Coal Syndicate has an
exceedingly valuable property,
the exploitation of which cannot
fail to bring them large returns,
whilethedevelopmentof the large
seams of fine coal, aggregating
over twenty-two feetin thickness,
means the addition of another
large industry to the many which
will make this one of the most
prosperous districts of the province.

Favorable reports continue to
come from the new Tahtsa placet-
field. A number of Valley men
who took part in the stampede
have returned in the last few
days, and all declare that thej
district promises well. Many
had gold to show as the result of
surface panning. Three hundred
men are reported to be in the
district, which appears to be of
considerable extent. Late arrivals state that a large number of
claims has been staked, mainly
on three creeks. On Cibola creek,
where the first discovery was
made, the original locators are
now engaged in sinking to bedrock, and are making good progress, with full confidence in
the existence of a good pay-
streak. A majority of those who
have come out will lose no time
in getting back with tools and
supplies for working their claims
and it is probable that before the
snow flies the miners will have
a definite knowledge of the
actual value of the goldfield.

ducts. It remains to be seen
whether our enterprise is sufficient to take advantage of the
many opportunities that will present themselves within the next
few years. If we do it is only a
question of a comparatively short
time before the trade development of the Pacific, in the bulk
of the commerce carried, rivals
in magnitude that of the Atlantic���Ex.

The Omineca Miner has thc largest bona fide circulation of any newspaper in the
Northern Interior of British Columbia.
President Chamberlin, of the Grand Trunk Pacific, speaking
in regard to the conditions he found in the northwest during his
recent trip of inspection over the National Transcontinental, said:
"After leaving the transcontinental I went directly to the end of
construction in British Columbia, some two hundred miles west of
Winnipeg. Although the rainy season is on in British Columbia at
the present lime, work is progressing very rapidly, and we hope to
have the line at Fort George about the beginning of the New Year
and rails connected through to the Pacific Coast early the next
season.
"I found conditions in the west much better than I expected.
The grain crop is the best that has ever been produced in the northwest, and weather conditions have been perfect up to the present
time, so that if they continue il will probably be not only the
largest but the best quality of grain that has ever been harvested.
This, 1 am sure, will relieve the financial depression which has
been giving us uneasiness l'or the past year. Although my trip
west was hurried it has been the most satisfactory that I have
ever made into that country."
GREAT EXPANSION
OF CANADA'S TRADE
Each succeeding record of statistics dealing with the trade of
the Dominion shows an increase.
This country has every reason to
congratulate herself on the advances she is making, and it is
very certain that the expansion
will be more than maintained
within the next few years. Last
year the trade of the country
reached a value of over $1,000,-
000,000. This total was for the
fiscal year ending March, 1913.
For the month of July of this
year the trade returns show a
total of $100,357,000, so that if
this average per month is maintained the total trade for thei
present fiscal year will be somewhere in the neighborhood of j
$1,200,000,000, or 20 per cent, in
excess of 1912-13. Illustrative
of the stable advancement being
made it is well to learn that there
has been a notable increase during the past four months in the
amount of agricultural products
exported from this country. This
is an indication of the rapid increase being made in the area of j
land under cultivation, and our
ability to feed not only our own
population but to supply the i
needs of others. This feature is
one of the most healthy signs of;
our development.
In   the   development   of   the
trade of the Dominion we in British Columbia will, in the  future,
have a much more active interest
than  in   the  past.     New  trade
routes will be developed with the
opening  of  the  Panama Canal,
World markets, hitherto prohibitive to us on account of freight;
charges,  will   be brought within
our reach, and the  new avenues
of   commerce   thus   opened   up!
must mean a large increase to i
the trade   development   of   the |
Dominion.     Yet another factor
that will   lead  to an  increase of
trade to the Pacific Coast will be
the arrangement of a reciprocity
treaty with Australia, and closer
trade    relations    with   Oriental I
countri .'.    All these factors will
not alone increase the bulk of
our trade, but as well will mean, j
in all  probability, a decrease in
the cost of living, and that is
something that will   appeal   to)
every class of the community. \
Hitherto in the trade returns of
the Dominion the Atlantic Ocean
as a commercial route has been
the dominating factor, and while j
for many years to come it still |
must remain so, it is very eer
tain that from now on the Pacific
will more and more contribute to
the records that are an index of
this country's prosperity. We in
Brit'sh Columbia stand upon the
threshold of a great awakening
in our commercial relations with
those countries that are the geographical  markets  for our pro-

Prince George Prices High
Vancouver, Sept. 18: - The auction sale of lots in the Grand
Trunk Pacific townsite of Prince
George,   adjoining Fort Geotge,
I was  held   here   yesterday,   and
surprisingly good prices were realized.     The lots sold  brought
' from $200 to $13,600, the latter
price  being paid  for  a  double
corner   at   Quebec   and  Third.
; Over $400,000 worth of lots were
|sold  yesterday.     The sale con-
| tinues today.    Two thousand lots
will  be sold here, the sale being
resumed    next    Wednesday   in
Edmonton,
who dug gold in the Cariboo in
1861 are: Edgar Dewdney, of
Victoria; Ned Stout, of Yale; C.
G. Major, of New Westminster;
John McLean, of Quesnel; J,
May, of Hazelton; George Harvey of Colville, Wash.; Johnny
Bryant, of Nanaimo; John Mc-
Lennon and Tom Ladner, of Vancouver; Doc English, of Ashcroft;
Isaac Oppenheimer, of Berlin,
Germany; l'hil Grinder, of Big
Bear; Sam Pierce and Bob Stevenson of Princeton.
James May, Hazelton's representative on the list, has passed
his eightieth milestone, and is
still going strong. He was one
of three white men, the first
to take a canoe up the Quesnel,
in 1859. After spending a number of years in the Cariboo, Mr.
May came to Omineca district,
and in 1870 staked the first claim
on Germansen creek. He was
also the first to plant a stake on
Tom creek. After a busy and
adventurous career, the veteran
retired from active mining two
years ago, and now enjoys life
in his own quiet way.

Nanaimo Trials
Nanaimo, Sept. 17:���The trials
of 168 men charged with complicity in the recent labor disturbances in this district will begin here on Monday, before
Judge Barker, of the county
court. This will be the final act
in one of Canada's most remarkable strike disturbances. Many
of the miners believe they have
lost concessions which they might
havegained had not the disturbing
element gained control of the
strikers.

Moricetown, advertised in a
newspaper at Youngstown, Ohio,
for a female assistant to help
him look after his business, says
the Prince Kupert News. Not
long afterward he received a reply from Julie Bach, of Pitcairn,
Pa., asking for further particulars. In his reply he intimated
diplomatically that he would not
be averse to taking a partner for
life. After a very brief correspondence, matters were satisfactorily arranged, and the applicant for a position in this
great land of opportunity, boarded a train for the west. She arrived here on Saturday, and the
two were made not only partners
in business, but partners for life.
Mr. and Mrs. Starck left by this
morning's train for [Moricetown,
both satisfied that it pays to
advertise.
