 THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER IN NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
VOL. Ill, NO. 14
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1913
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
Serious Situation Created by
Decision of Justice Hunter
in Appeal Case
London, Dec. 3:���The Imperial
authorities are giving serious
consideration to the Hindu problem as it effects Canada. One
proposal which is discussed in
official circles is to colonize the
Sudan with natives of India, thus
absorbing the emigration which
would otherwise threaten the
Dominions. The London Times
supports Canada's protest against
the admission of Hindus.
Ottawa, Dec. 3:���The outstanding question in government circles is the Hindu problem. It is
hoped some solution satisfactory
to the people of British Columbia
will be arrived at. There is a
clause in the immigration act
which would be effective in preventing the landing of Hindus,
but it has been heretofore considered too drastic for application.
Victoria, Dec. 3:���Premier McBride says Chief Justice Hunter's
decision in the Hindu cases has
produced a most critical condition, with which the higher
courts and the Dominion government will be asked to deal.
Mr. Camminetti, chief of the
United States immigration bureau, has been in Victoria, in
conference with Sir Richard on
the question. He states that
many Hindus now in Manila are
anxious to come to America.
Larkin's Crusade Fails
London, Nov. 29:���"The Fiery
Cross" crusade of James Larkin,
the Dublin strike leader, has become a damp squib. He has signally failed to arouse any enthusiasm in this country for a
national strike, and is now indulging in vituperative eloquence
which consists principally of insulting his audience.
Newspaper correspondents at
Dublin state that while Larkin
is beating the air in England the
Dublin strike is collapsing, and
they doubt whether it will continue until the date of the special
conference on December 9. The
bulk of English trades unionist
leaders severely criticize Larkin's
tyrannical domination of the
leaders and give him the cold
shoulder.
Indian Commission
Vancouver, Dec. 5:���Chairman
Wetmore has resigned from the
Indian Commission. The work
will not be delayed. It is intended
to tour Northern British Columbia in the spring, before closing
the work. Already the commission has taken 18,000 pages of
evidence.
B. C. Horses Win
Victoria, Dec. 5: -Farm horses
from the provincial government
farm at Coquitlam won at Chicago's great fair, defeating the
noted Swift and Armour exhibts.
Bandits Rob Bank
And Kill Manager
Plum Coulee, Man.. Dec. 8:���
Manager Arnold, of the Bank of
Montreal branch here, was killed
hy bandits who plundered the
bank of five thousand dollars.
Arnold followed the robbers, who
shot him and escaped.
Hockey Meeting Tonight
Members of the Hazelton Athletic Association are requested
to attend a meeting in the
Omineca Mess at eight this evening. The election of delegates
to the Hockey League meeting
at Smithers and other important
business will be taken up.
Lost ln Hotel Fire
Boston, Dec. 5:���Twenty-eight
lives were lost in the burning of
the Arcadia hotel, a cheap lodging house for men.
Parliament January 15
Ottawa, Dec. 5:- The house of
commons will meet on January
15.	
Dynamite Plot Discovered
Edmonton, December 5: ��� A
plot to blow up the penitentiary
here has been discovered. Twenty sticks of dynamite were found.
Record Insurance Policy
Montreal, Dec. 5:���The property of the Canadian Pacific is
being insured for $100,000,000.
Five companies are interested
in the policy, which is the largest
ever issued in Canada.
SUFFRAGETTE LEADER
ARRESTED! LANDING
London, Dec. 5:���Mrs. Pankhurst was arrested on her arrival
at Portsmouth on Thursday, and
will be required to serve the remainder of her three-year sentence. The suffragette army
which was formed to prevent
her arrest was out-generaled by
the police. The militants are
resentful, and further violence
is expected.
London, Dec. 1:���The news
that Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst
is on the Atlantic returning from
the United States with $20,000
has occasioned great jubilation
among the militant wing of the
suffragettes, and they are making vigorous efforts to organize
a great reception for her.
If the militant lear'er is not
arrested she is to proceed to
London for a "welcome" meeting at Earl's Court, and will
afterwards open a provincial
campaign.
The most pertinent question on
the subject at the moment is,
will she be arrested by the English police? She had served only
a few weeks of her sentence of
three years of penal servitude
for inciting to outrage when released from prison on May 30.
It was then said that she was
in a dying condition, but since
then she has had a prolonged
holiday in France and has crossed
the Atlantic. Judging by the arduous campaign she proposes to
undertake, she is now in ordinary
health.

STORMS DELAY TRAINS
AND DAMAGE BRIDGES
German Settlers Coming
Ottawa, Dec. 1:���Dr. W. B.
Schweibe, of Germany, is here
making arrangements for establishing a company with $5,000,-
000 capital for the purpose of
bringing out German families to
Canada and supplying them with
land and implements.
The company plans to bring
out two hnndred and fifty families
next spring.
A New Shamrock
Portsmouth, Dec. 1:���The keel
of the new Shamrock which is to
compete for the America Cup has
been laid here by Sir Thomas
Lipton, challenger. The building
of this vessel will be attended
with the greatest secrecy.
Mud slides on the Lower
Skeena delayed Wednesday's
train, which did not reach Hazelton until Thursday. The accommodation train which was
brought from Smithers to make
connection with the coast train,
was delayed for several hours
east of the Ross tunnels, where
the gumbo banks gave considerable trouble.
Rains have been general
throughout the district, with the
result that all streams were unusually high yesterday. The
sudden rise in the Bulkley carried
out a part of the temporary bridge
to South Hazelton. Various
small bridges were carried away,
including the Blackwater bridge
on the telegraph trail.
Parcels Post
Ottawa, Dec. 1: The Postmaster Genen'.l has announced
that everything was in readiness
for putting the parcels post into
operation. The final difficulty
not yet surmounted was that
brought forward by the railways,
who are asking six million dollars
annually to carry parcels. Thev
are getting two millions a year
now for carrying the mails.
When this matter is settled,
definite rates for parcels will be
determined.
The Greenwood Ledge says; -
"Young Scotch bank clerks should
beep away from Hazelton. They
shoot them down in that wicked
town, because they do not respect the drop and are too slow in
elevating their hands."
Predicts Mining Activity
British Columbia is on the eve
of the greatest mining development the province has known.
Scouts for investors have been
numerous this summer. The
difficulties they meet with are
the scarcity of developed properties on the market, and the
excessive prices placed on prospects which might otherwise
justify development. That the
province may have the full benefit of the promised renewal of
mining activity, it behoves every
man who has the interest of the
mining industry at heart to do
his utmost lo keep it clean and
free from wildcat promotions.
There are enough resources and
opportunities for legitimate work
without wildcatting. Then the
mineral industry may be expected to undergo steady and pros-
| porous development till British
Columbia takes its place among
the leading mining countries of
the world.���Mining and Eng.
Record.
Rebels Gain Ground
In Northern Mexico
El Paso, Dec. 3:���The rebel
forces continue to gain ground in
the northern states of Mexico.
They now hold nearly all important towns along the international
border. It is the general opinion

will not be long delayed.

large property damage has resulted in many cities.
To Enforce U. S. Fish Laws
Washington, Nov. 27: ��� Complaints against the Canadian,
Japanese and Russian fishermen
of invading Alaskan waters for
halibut, has led Secretary of the
Navy Redfield to include in his
estimates for the department of
commerce an appropriation of
$100,000 for the purchase of a
sea going vessel, one light drai't
tug and six rapid motor boats
with which to enforce the alien
fishing law.
FRENCH AND GERMAN
GOVERNMENTS OUT
Paris, Dec. 3:���Premier Bar-
thou and the French ministry
were defeated in the chamber of
deputies, by a coalition of Socialists and Radicals. President
Poincare is casting about for a
new premier. The situation is
critical.
Berlin, Dec. 3:���The German
government was defeated in the
Imperial parliament on a resolution criticizing its attitude in the
labor difficulty in Alsace-Lorraine. As a result of the strike
situation in these provinces, the
civil and military authorities have
come into conflict, a crisis resulting. The Kaiser is now taking
a hand in the matter.
Pat Welch Seriously 111
Seattle, Dec. 1: ��� Patrick
Welch, the wealthy railroad contractor of Spokane, who was operated upon last Saturday night
after he had suffered a rupture
of the appendix, is in a serious
condition today, with chances of
recovery about even. The members of his family are here, having come from Spokane by special train.
OUR CREDIT IS
Province Raises Million and
Half at Moderate Interest
In London Market
Victoria, Dec. 5:���Six-months'
treasury bills of British Columbia
to the value of $1,500,000 have
been sold in London. They carry
five per cent, interest. The
premier explains that the immediate object of the issue is to
meet payments on public works
due at the beginning of the year.
Since the beginning of the fiscal
year expenditures on public works
have totalled between eight and
nine million dollars, and although
the province yet has a substantial
bank balance, it was thought
wise to issue treasury bills, following the example of many
other governments. Three com-
ses were open; one to curtail expenditure, which would increase
the general depression; a second
to force collection of sums due
the province, which would embarrass many. The third course,
which was adopted, was to secure a temporary loan.
To Eliminate Japs
Vancouver, Dec. 3: ��� H. S.
Clement, M. P., in an address to
Vancouver Conservatives, said
the Dominion government had
made provision for six hundred
licenses to fish in Skeena and
other northern waters, to be issued only to white men. The
member declares that within five
or six years Asiatics will be eliminated from the fishing industry
of British Columbia.
Work of Forest Branch
The field work of the forest
branch is now almost completed
and the staff are engaged closing
up reports and generally rounding up the season's work.
From the standpoint of fire
protection the season just passed
has been most successful, thanks
to the wet weather, the efficiency
of the staff and the co-operation
of the general public.
In spite of the extra amount of
work involved in the reorganization of the working field staff, a
considerable amount of permanent improvement work has been
accomplished in this district.
Trails, cabins and telephones
have been built, lookout stations
located, and plans laid for a more
thorough fire control in forest
areas. Inaccessible districts have
been opened up, and in the event
of fire, men and equipment can
be got to the scene of operations
in quick order. Methods of control have been systematized and
a more thorough system of staff
supervision has been inaugurated.
Forty miles of trail have been
constructed, 17 miles of telephone
built, and 5 cabins for guard and
ranger quarters have been put up.
The total force in this district
during the season has been 28
men, and next season it is proposed to considerably increase
this number. The program for
next season has not yet been
fully made up, but it is expected
that the scope of theforest branch
will be further extended.
The forest branch has at present men in the field in connection
with the grazing scheme of the
lands department. Should this
plan be carried out, its operations
will be conducted under tin. supervision of the forest branch.
Much damage was don-; in

The Omineca Miner has the largest bona fide circulation of any newspaper in the
North; ra Interior of British Columbia.
The people of British Columbia are rightly concerned over the
court decision under which Hindus may be admitted to Canada
despite the restrictions sought to be enforced by the immigration
authorities. If this province is to be undefended against the influx
of Hindus and other natives of India, it is easy to imagine a condition which would threaten the prosperity of the country. The
overflow of India's three hundred millions might, in a very short
time create a labor problem in British Columbia, to which anything
we have had in the past would seem trivial. It is to be hoped the
Imperial authorities will succeed in their endeavor to provide for
Indian emigration without burdening the Dominions with unwelcome hordes of Hindus. Although, at this distance, it is difficult
to judge the merits of the proposal to colonize the Sudan with the
Hindus, everyone who has the true interests of British Columbia at
heart will hope that the plan may prove feasible. Lord Kitchener
has proved his ability as a colonize r and administrator, and if he
becoines the head of the Indian government there is good reason to
look for a satisfactory solution of the problem.

every case of exceptionally fine

The suitability of many parts
of Alberta and British Columbia
for growing timothy for seed is
unquestionable, and it is the intention of the government,
through the Seed Branch, to assist farmers in their methods of
handling and marketing their
seed.
Last year the Dominion Seed
Laboratory at Calgary examined
317 samples of timothy, of which
155 were received from farmers;
135 of these came from Alberta,
11 from British Columbia, 8 from
Manitoba, and 1 from the United
States.
Of 317 samples received 278
were examined for weed seeds,
and graded as follows:
Extra No. 1, 7; No. 1. 23; No.
2, 99; No. 3, 54; rejected, 95.
Samples containing more than
80 noxious weed seeds or a total
of over 400 of all kinds of weed
seeds per ounce are rejected, and
are prohibited for sale, under
section 9 of the "Seed Control
Act."
Lambs quarters is by far the
most prevailent weed seed found
in western-grown timothy, occurring in 204 of the samples.
Rough cinquefoil is next, being
found in 138 samples. Other
common weed seeds are worm-
seed, mustard, gentian, yarrow,
blue-eyed grass, pepper grass,
tower mustard, evening primrose,
western false flax, ball mustard,
curled dock, and catch fly. Many
of these weed seeds could be
easily removed from timothy by
an ordinary fanning mill, fitted
with the proper sieves.
Farmers having timothy are
invited to send samples to the
Seed Laboratory, Calgary, for
grading or to receive information
as to the proper sir .es to be used
for cleaning their particular seed.
Sample bags in which seed
may be sent, as well as further
particulars in regard to taking
and sending samples, may be
had by sending to the above address.
Twenty-five samples of seed
will be tested free of charge for
any one party; after that 25c a
sample is charged.

A. D. MacKay, who has taken
up land on Buck river, is in town
for a few days. H�� has just
completed a frame residence on
his new ranch.
Wm, Hunter, one of the original pioneers of the mining industry in this district, was here during the week. He has just returned from the coast, much improved in health.
Dr. C. G. Maclean accompanied
the divisional officers from Hazelton on Saturday. It is understood he will receive the appointment of district surgeon, with
headquarters at Smithers.
Harold Price's survey party
which has been working in this
vicinity for several months, has
completed its work for the season, and J. L. King, who was in
charge, left with his men for the
c >ast on Sunday.
Poles for the lighting of Main
s reet have been raised, and the
big tungsten lamps will illuminate
Smithers' principal thoroughfare
as soon as the dynamo, which is
on the delayed freight train,
can be installed.
Rumor has it that F. D. Eason,
engineer in charge of G. T. P.
yard work here, and one of the
most popular young men in
Smithers, will take unto himself
a wife before he returns from
the vacation trip on which he
started last Saturday.
A party of G. T. P. officials arrived in Smithers on Saturday,
Superintendent Mehan being accompanied by G. A. McNicholl,
commissioner of colonization and
industries; Dr. Eggert, divisional
surgeon, and Albert Davidson,
general agent. They left on
Sunday morning for a trip of inspection to the end of steel.
J. G. Halleran is now a member
of the despatching staff, under
Chief Despatcher P. J. Flaherty.
Mr. and Mrs. Halleran arrived
from Vancouver on Saturday,
and have secured a temporary
residence. They will probably
occupy one of the bungalows
which are to be erected at Queen
and Broadway by Smith & Eggleston.

grain -or potatoes���as they have
grown, so that a promising sort
for their conditions may be se-.
lected.
Each application must be separate and must be signed by the
applicant. Only one sample of
grain and one of potatoes can be
sent to each farm. Applications
on any kind of printed form cannot be accepted. If two or more
samples are asked for in the same
letter only one will be sent
As the supply of seed is limited, farmers are advised to
apply early; but applications will
not necessarily be filled in the
exact order in which they are received. Preference will always
be given to the most thoughtful
and explicit requests. Applications
received after the end of January
will probably be too late.
All applications for grain, and
applications from the provinces
of Ontario and Quebec for potatoes, should be addressed to the
Dominion Cerealist, Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa. Such
applications require no postage.
If otherwise addressed delay and
disappointment may occur.
Applications, for potatoes, from
farmers in any other province s
should be addressed, postage prepaid, to the Superintendent of the
nearest Branch Experimental
Farm in that province.
