FOR LOT 851
Board of Trade Passes Strong
Resolution Favoring Station at South Hazelton
BUT FOUR ADVERSE VOTES
Inconsiderable Opposition to Pronouncement of Business Men- - Many Reasons
Advanced for Preference ��� Would
Prolong  Life   of Present Town
An important step was taken
by the board of trade at a special
meeting on Thursday evening,
when, with a full attendance of
members, a strong resolution was
passed asking the Governor-in-
Council to order the location of
a station at South Hazelton, as
the nearest and best location for
the people of the established
town. The matter had been-discussed previously by the council
of the board, and the resolution
was presented with the endorsation of the executive. Following
a discussion in which leading
business and professional men of
Hazelton supported the proposal,
a vote was taken, and the resolution was carried by an overwhelming majority, only four
voting against it.
The resolution asks that the
order of the board of railway
commissioners, fixing upon lot
882 as the location for the Hazelton station and restraining the
establishment of a station on lot
851, be rescinded, and that the
G. T. P. be ordered to maintain
a station on lot 851. In support
of the request, the following
reasons for the action of the
board are appended to the petition:
(a) It is the nearest possible
point to Hazelton, thus reducing
cost of moving.
(b) It is on the Skeena and
Bulkley rivers, thus affording
access by water as well as rail���
an  important   consideration   in
obtaining  lumber  for   building
purposes.
(c) It is on a commanding
elevation affording a most inspiring view of scenery for a distance of over thirty miles whereas
every other possible site is
hemmed in between hills.
(d) It is gently rolling and
offers the best possible facilities
both for erection of buildings,
grading of streets and drainage,
in these respects it is immeasurably superior to other competing
sites.
(e) Being more easily drained
it will be healthier.
(f) It is nearer to the Kispiox
valley, the largest agricultural
district tributary to the town.
(g) The slight grade on the
railway at lot 851, in excess of
that at lot 882, need not be considered an impediment, since
heavy shipments of ore can
always be made, if desired, at
the siding to be maintained on
lot 882, which is equally convenient to most of the mines.

Eighty Miners Dead
MacCurtain, Okla., Mar.22:���
There is a death roll of eighty in
one mine as a result of an explosion in the San Bois mines. A
total of 116 miners were in peril.
Fifteen of the men were rescued
today, being found in a room on
the thirteenth level, where they
had taken refuge when they
heard the explosion. They kept
themselves alive by means of an
air pump.
Prisoner Shoots Constable
Kelowna, Mar. 22:���Provincial
Constable Ashton may die as the
result of a fight with two desperadoes, named James and Wilson,
whom he had arrested on a charge
of robbery. The constable was
taking the men to Vernon for
trial when they made a desperate
attempt to escape from the
steamer. James, on being brought
here, confessed to shooting Ashton and forcing Wilson, at the
point of a revolver, to join in the
attempt to escape. The affray
occurred in the cabin of the boat.

The largest and most interesting political meeting ever held in
Hazelton took place on Wednesday evening in the auditorium,
when William Manson made good
his claim to re-election as the
representative of Skeena district
in the provincial house. The
speakers of the evening, besides
Mr. Manson, were representatives of the Liberal, Socialist and
Clayton parties, the last-named
being represented by the entire
party.
Mr. Manson, in an address
lasting an hour, gave a businesslike exposition of the policy of
the  administration.     The new
railways for which provision has time
fecting this district, the former
member told of his efforts to secure the division of Skeena District, and explained the reasons
actuating the government in declining to bring in a measure of
redistribution at this juncture.
Although he had made every effort to secure the division of the
district, he said, he believed the
matter could be adjusted to the
better satisfaction of the people
of the interior in a year or two,
when the settlement of the
newer portions of the district
would justify redistribution on
lines more satisfactory than
could be drawn at the present
been made, the land business of
the province, surveys and public
works, fisheries and the proposed
tax reforms, all received due attention at the speaker's hands.
Coming to matters directly af-
Liberal Candidate Here
Alex. Manson, the Liberal candidate, held a meeting here last
last night. There was a good
attendance and considerable interest was manifested by the
audience, Following the opening
remarks of Chairman J. Mason
Adams, L. L. DeVoin undertook
to show that it was not necessary
for Skeena to return a government supporter. C. Hunter declared he was not a Socialist,
advocating rather "Industrial
Democracy." However, he asked
the electors to vote for "Bill"
Montgomery.
The candidate was warmly
greeted by his supporters. He
declared he had nothing against
William Manson personally, yet
devoted most of his speech to an
attack on the government candidate. The only planks in the
Liberal platform which he dealt
with at any length were workmen's compensation and the promotion of settlement He promised settlers free land, free surveys and free crown grants.
Rev. R. W. Lee also addressed
the meeting.

In addition to the old polling places, the following have been
appointed for the present election: Skeena Crossing, Sealey, New
Hazelton, Big Tunnel Camp, Babine, Twenty-mile, South Bulkley,
enthusiastic meetings everywhere on the lower mainland
and Vancouver Island. The prediction is freely made that there
will not be a single Liberal
elected.
The climax of the ministerial
tour of over a thousand miles
came last night, when meetings
were held in Vancouver and New
Westminster. The premier addressed both gatherings, meeting
here one of the greatest Conservative rallies in the city's history. Mr. McBride received a
remarkably cordial reception. He
invited George Kennedy, the Liberal candidate, to a seat on the
platform. Kennedy accepted and
addressed the meeting.
The premier left at noon today
for Nanaimo, where he speaks
tonight, going to Ladysmith l'or
a meeting on Saturday. The
closing meetings of the campaign
will be held in Victoria on Monday and Tuesday.
Reports from all contested constituencies indicate a sweeping
victory for the Conservatives.
Taylor, in Rossland, and McConnell, in Yale, both of whom are
Vancouver Liberals, are likely to
lose their deposits.
The Socialists tried hard, but
in vain, to create a disturbance
at the meeting here last evening.
The premier and attorney-general
rapped them hard, to the amusement of a crowd which packed
the large hall. Hundreds were
turned away. Mr. McBride replied to one interrupter that if
the Socialists gave more time to
the development of the land from
which they derive their living
and not so much to the affairs of
Germany, they would do more
for their own province and more
for themselves. Any who could
not do this would better return
to Germany.
The premier was in fine oratorical form, notwithstanding his
strenuous tour, and showed remarkable stamina in a lengthy
and exhaustive address on his
railway and other policies, adding
effective replies to all the Liberal
criticisms. A waiting auto carried him to the New Westminster
meeting, which lasted until midnight, the hall being packed to
the doors.

A holiday and vacation took
him to Edinburgh; and he remained there somf six or seven
years, until he removed to Glasgow. He had proclaimed his attachment to Scotland by marrying
at Edinburgh.
Lister had been deeply impressed by the great mortality
then commonly attendant on
surgical operations. Almost every
operation was followed by "surgical fever." The probabilities
were death: the opening of the
door of ability to operate
through the introduction of
anaesthetics seemed to lead but
to death.
In the early sixties Lister became acquainted with the great
discoveries of Pasteur, that fermentation and putrefaction were
not mere chemical changes, initiated and promoted by contact
with the atmosphere, but were
due to the activities of minute
living organisms.
With the illumination of genius
Lister saw the surgical possibilities of the discovery. He applied
himself to the study of killing
germs in a surgical wound and of
preventing the access of further
germs. He first practised with
carbolic  acid   and  cotton  wool.

William Manson Will Be Returned
Mr. William Manson appeared before the electors of Hazelton
and vicinity on Wednesday evening to render an account of his
actions as the representative of Skeena District in the provincial
parliament and to give an exposition of the policy of the administration which he supports. The reception accorded him leaves no
room for doubt as to his re-election, so far as the voters of this
district are concerned. The people of the northern interior of the
province, which the present government has done so much to open
up, have no intention of abandoning their attitude of confidence in
the McBride administration, and no desire to entrust the conduct
of their affairs to any of the parties or factions represented by the
three candidates who are in the field in opposition to the former
member.
As the Liberal spokesman truthfully said at Wednesday's
meeting, the contest is between the two Mansons. William of that
name, who has proved his willingness and ability to advance the
interests of his constituents, is opposed in this election by Alexander
Manson, a lawyer. The latter, who is to the people of this part of
the district an unknown quantity, appears in the role of critic,
pointing out what he conceives to be the shortcomings of the Conservative government. Whatever his standing in the esteem of his
fellow-townsmen of Prince Rupert���and as to that there is more
than one story���he can have no claim to the suffrages of the people
of the interior save as the representative of a party which has recently been displaced in the federal capital and which has, at best,
but a nebulous existence in the field of politics in British Columbia.
The Liberal party in this province, with no record of accomplish- j ^ success was marvelous,
ment behind it, offers but little ground for attack. Its hastily con-! Lister made the first public an-
structed platform, the principal planks of which are a part of the | nouncement of his method in
policy of the present popular administration, will not suffice to turn | March 1865: in places scornful
the voters of British Columbia from approval of the general policy incredulity and reasoned doubt
of the McBride administration. The task of criticising a government which has been a power for a number of years is always an
easy one. There is no record in history of a party or a government
so good and wise that it never made mistakes nor antagonized any
section of the community. This province has been so far fortunate,
however, that the present administration offers but little ground
for reasonable or just criticism. The McBride government has a
record of achievement of which its supporters may well feel proud,
and has announced a policy for the future which will meet with
the approval of a large majority of the people of the province���a
policy which means unprecedented prosperity for this new country
in the near future.

learned to know the desires of the people of the district, and is
apparently of no mind to take issue with the majority by opposing
the McBride policy.
Board of Trade Takes Action
The people of Hazelton, through the medium of the Board of
Trade, have declared their preference for the townsite of South
Hazelton. In December last, when the question of the Hazelton
station was considered by the railway commissioners, a petition
signed by a large majority of the business men of the town was
presented to the board, but the commissioners appeared to give it
no consideration. Now that the matter is to be referred to the
higher authority, the' sentiment of the people of this town
has been crystallized in a Board of Trade resolution which states
in unmistakable terms the desire for a station at the nearest point
to the established town. Many and good reasons are given. It is
understood the application for rescission of the order preventing
the placing of a station on lot 851 will ba heard bsfore the Gover-
nor-in-Council shortly after the Easter vacation.
Should the application for a station at South Hazelton be granted,
the effect will be to prolong the life of the present town for some
time at least. The business men and other residents of Hazelton
have many thousands of dollars invested in lots and buildings in
the town, and their reluctance to abandon their property and purchase lots and erect buildings in another location entirely is quite
understandable.

reviewing Smith's career, the
speaker declared him a political
carpet-bagger, the best test of
whose standing was what people
thought of him in Nanaimo,
where Smith had lived nearly his
whole life. There he had been
defeated in the federal election.
He knew better than to accept
the Liberal nomination in Nanaimo, because that meant certain
defeat. In Vancouver Smith was
a newcomer, but the electors
would resent his groundless accusations.

(Special  to The Miner)
Vancouver, Mar. 22:���A Delta
meeting was held at Ladner on
Wednesday. The premier spoke,
saying the Liberal organization
was almost defunct. He commented on a leaflet in circulation
in the hall, containing an interview given out by Hibbert Tupper, criticising the railway policy.
Mr. McBride said it was not considered good taste to speak otherwise then well of those "who
have gone" and Tupper was
politically dead. Sir Hibbert had
been discredited by his own
party, and now linked himself
with disgruntled Grits. The
electors were sure to do the very
opposite of what he (Tupper) desired. It was so in the previous
campaign, when the same critic
attacked the railway policy of
three years ago.

up the resources of the interior.
Steps would be taken to investigate the Skeena route for a railway to Groundhog coal fields,
and the question of assisting the
construction of a line from Hazelton to the upper Skeena country
would receive the attention it
deserved. In the matter of roads,
trails and bridges, this district
had been fairly treated, and
while he had not been able to
secure appropriations as large as
he had wished, it would be
found that the Hazelton and valley districts would be allotted
their due proportion.
The Skeena appropriation for
roads and   trails   for 1912 was
| $351,000, and for bridges $88,000.
: To ensure in all cases the proper
[expenditure   of   the   funds   for
; public works, district engineers
would be appointed throughout
j the province, one such official
being stationed at Prince Rupert,
jto cooperate with the road
superintendents of Skeena. The
rapid expansion of the country
tributary to Hazelton, and the
necessity for the construction of
so many new roads and trails,
necessitated the division of the
interior road district. The present unwieldy district, which it
was impossible for one man to
supervise, would be divided, and
a competent man would be appointed to the new section. The
trail to Groundhog, for which
the people of the district had
j petitioned, would be constructed
without delay,   and other   road
I work necessary for the development of the district would be
instituted as soon as the season
was sufficiently advanced.
Mr. Manson  concluded his address amid applause,  and   was

'did not deal with policies or
politics���save by reference to the
alleged "machine" in Prince Rupert contenting himself with

however, succeed in showing the

than the disease. The adoption
of the minimum wage principle
in this instance would invite
every other trade to ask for
similar treatment.
It is thought the coal miners
may return to work on March 30.
Passed Second Reading
London, Mar. 21: 'The miners'
minimum wage bill passed its second reading today. Hon. A. J
Balfour's motion to re
measure was defeated by 384 to
225. It is beelived the bill will
receive its third reading on Saturday and will then become law.
The situation throughout the
country is much improved, owing
to the probability of a settlement
on the passage of the bill. The
action of Balfour in virtually resuming the leadership of the opposition was a surprise to the
house. Bonar Law, the recently
chosen leader of the party, voted
with the government on the,
question.
Much Opposition

strong opposition to the proposal
ol the government to regulate
the wages of coal miners. The
large body of employers, both
Radical and Unionist, fear that

high opinion of his own
and fighting qualities.
J. F. Macdonald, who has been
associated with Dr. Clayton in
Prince Rupert politics, made a
bitter attack on the "Lone
Fighter," alleging that the Doctor did not deserve to be called a
Conservative.
W. E.   Denning,   representing
the Socialist candidate, spoke for
i half an hour on the sins of all
other parties and  excellence of
j his own. Like the other speakers,
he was given an attentive  hearing.
The     nearest    approach     to
oratory was afforded by the ad-
| dress of Rev. R. W. Lee, of Kis-
: piox, who took up the cudgels on
| behalf of the Liberal candidate.
Mr. Lee began with the declaration that the only fault he
had to find with William Manson
was his adherence to the Conservative party. The speaker
showed platform ability which,
when accompanied with a knowledge of provincial politics, will
make him a debater fit for any
company. He criticised the McBride administration and urged
the return of the Liberal candidate. The contest, he said, was
between the two Mansons. Thc
other candidates were negligible.
In a masterly speech of twenty
minutes duration the government
candidate closed the debate, answering the attacks of his opponents in a manner that evoked
enthusiastic approval from the
audience. He closed with the
declaration that his only desire
was that the electors should
judge the issues fairly and vole
for the man they considered
would best serve the district.
He was satisfied to abide by then-
decision.
It was near midnight when Mr.
Manson ended his speech, and
the fact that many of the
audience which cheered him at
the conclusion of the meeting had
stood throughout the evening
speaks volumes for the interest
taken in the campaign. Thc
j member expressed gratification
with the splendid reception accorded him, and asserted his conviction that he would be again
chosen as the representative of
the district. ���
At the conclusion of the meeting Dr. Clayton made an ineffectual attempt to secure a
hearing.
for syndicalism, which aims at
starving a nation into surrender.
The citizens of Sweden, with the
support of thc government, recently defeated these syndicalist
designs, and Monsieur Briand,
socialist, though he is, called out
the citizen army to defeat them
in France.
The government here, say the
owners and Unionist journals,
must similiarly use the army territorials and reserves to protect
free labor in the mines and on
the railways and to maintain the

M. Manson, the Liberal candidate, held a meeting tonight.
There was little enthusiasm. He
appealed for support, not as a
straight Liberal, but as an independent.
Groundhog Second To None

C. Campbell-Johnson, M. E.,;
publishes a statement answering
Duncan's arguments in detail.
Campbell-Johnson's letter^ which
occupies two colums in one of the
ditily papers, pays a high tribute
to Groundhog anthracite coal
fields, declaring that in tonnage
and in quality they are second to
neither Pennsylvania nor Welsh
fields.
Rupert Victory Predicted
(Special  Id The Miller)
Prince Rupert, Mar. 22:���The
present aspect of the election
campaign here is highly encouraging to supporters of the govern-
ment Indications are that William Manson will gain a sweeping
victory here and at all coast
points. On Wednesday evening1
the Conservatives held a smoker
in the Empress theater, in the
interest of the government candidate. The building was crowded
to its utmost capacity, and the
utmost enthusiasm prevailed
throughout the evening, speeches
in William Manson's favor being
loudly cheered.
Panama Tolls
Through a bill adopted by a
vote of fourteen to four the1 Congressional committee on interstate commerce Saturday recommends the passage of a measure
that would give to the president
authority to fix tolls on the
Panama canal with certain restrictions.   The bill is as follows:
"That the president is hereby
authorized to prescribe and from
time to time change toll charges
for the use of the Panama canal
by all vessels, except those belonging to the government of the
United States (including those of
the Panama Railway Company)
and the government of the Republic of Panama, which excepted vessels shall not be charged
tolls.
"Charges may be based upon
gross 6r net registered tonnage,
displacement tonnage, or otherwise, and may be based on one
form of tonnage for warships
and another for ships of commerce, but the tolls shall not exceed $1.25 per ton, based upon
net registered tonnage for ships
of commerce, nor less than the
estimated proportionate cost of
the actual operations of the
canal."
"That it shall be unlawful for
ships to pass through the canal
which are owned, leased, operated or controlled by any railroad
company engaged in interstate
commerce or by any other corporation in which such railroad
company has any interest whatsoever, or by any persons, association or corporation with intent to restrain or prevent, or
with the effect of restraining or
preventing competition throughout the Panama canal, either between ships, ship lines and steamship companies or between ships,
ship lines or ship companies or
railroads.
"That it shall be unlawful for
any ship to pass through the
canal if the owner shall be engaged in any agreement, combination, ship ring, or commerce
with intent or restrain or prevent,
or with the effect of restraining
o r preventing competition
through the Panama canal among
ships, ship lines or ship companies."
Jewels to the value $200,000
were stolen from the residence
of Countess Szecheny, formerly
Miss Gladys Vanderbilt, at Budapest, last week. Detectives
found the jewels wrapped in a
newspaper, where they had been
hidden in a garage attached to
the house.
Located Good Coal Claims
G. M. Beirm's and John Ashman returned last night from
Groundhog coal fields, having
made a record trip. They covered 500 miles of trail and located
two blocks of coal claims in 20
days. ITheir last days travel
was from Bear river to Hazelton.
a distance of fifty miles. They
were fortunate enough to secure
two fine groups, one of sixty
claims and another of forty. The
location of their ground and the
exposures of high grade coal
should make their claims
valuable. Business connected
with their large interests in the
wonderful upper Skeena field will
take George Beirnes and J. K.
Ashman to Vancouver next week.
They expect to arrange for the
early development of the coal
measures on their claims.

Interior  Lumber Company
Hazelton
The Progressive Conservative
association in Prince Rupert held
a convention and unanimously
endorsed the candidature of Mr.
Wm. Manson, effectively disposing of the criticisms of those who
alleged that the former member
was supported by only a portion
of the Conservative party. Following the choice of Mr. Manson I
as their candidate, the Progressives discussed various matters
affecting the district. George
Findlay spoke of the requirements of the interior, ancl following the resultant discussion the
\ following resolution was unanimously carried:
"That this convention of Conservatives recommend the creation of a colonization department
to undertake the systematic settlement of the country, to actively aid settlement and make access to the land as easy as possible by money advances in improvements or otherwise as
deemed advisable, and that a
copy of this resolution be sent to
Mr. Manson and the Hon. Richard
McBride."
Speakers advocated the withdrawal of agricultural land from
purchase for speculative purposes
and the imposition of a substantial tax on such lands held for
speculation.
It was decided that an endeavor
should be made to convene the
Skeena district Conservative associations for the purpose of considering the present land laws
and conditions in the Skeena
district generally for the purpose
'jof making recommendations in
regard thereto, and that this
convention be called a week before the annual meeting of the
British Columbia Conservative
Association.

New York, March 22:- The

Rockefeller a bonanza when it
ordered the dissolution of the
Standard Oil trust for violation
of the Sherman anti-trust law.
Since the $100,000,000 corporation
was divided into its thirty-four
subsidiaries there has been an
appreciation in the market value
of the shares in the various subsidiaries of approximately $250,-

It has always been Wall
Street's understanding that the
oil king owned about one-quarter
of the capital of the old Standard
Oil Company, and on this basis
his share of paper enhancement
of Standard Oil issues is $60,000,-

OCEAN OF THE FUTURE
World's History Will Be Written On
Shores and Waters of Pacific says
Provincial Librarian In Recent Lecture
���Races Meeting On This Coast May

Mr.
had
Its
An interesting lecture on "The
Western Movement" was delivered in Victoria the other evening by E. 0. S. Scholefield, the
provincial librarian.
From earliest times, said
Scholefield, the human race
been moving westward,
birthplace had been in Hindu
Kush, north of the present Indian
empire, and thence rolling westward it had reached the shores
of the Atlantic ocean. For many
centuries that ocean had acted
as a bar to further progress, and
it was not until the voyages of
Columbus that the movement
was again continued. After the
fall of the Byzantine empire,
when Turkey blocked the road to
India and levied tribute on the
merchants who wished to trade
with the East, the Christian
nations decided that a time had
come to take a firm stand.
Shortly after 1492, the year of
the discovery of America by Columbus, this movement across
the Atlantic commenced. The
Spaniards were the first nation
to take part in the actual discoveries. Cartier and Champlain
were sent out by France and in
1501 the Portuguese despatched
an expedition, which resulted in
the discovery of the Strait of
Amiens, known today as the
North West passage. This westward movement had a humble
beginning. Britain established its
colonies on the Atlantic seaboard
and France in Canada, but before
that time the Spaniards, under
Cortez, had discovered Mexico
and had actually reached the
Pacific Ocean. In 1525 Cortez
established the first arsenal at
Tehuantepec.     But it was not

Typewriter .s the
Perpetual   Pioneer
The No. 10 and No. 11
Visible Remington Models
are. lhe latest expressions of
Remington leadership. They
represent lhe sum total of nil
typewriter achievement���past
and present.
They contain every merit
that the Remington has
always had and every
merit that any writing
machine   has   ever   had.
They contain, in addition,
new and fundamental
improvements that no typewriter has ever had; among
them the First Column Selector, thc First Built-in
Tabulator and the First Key-Set Tabulator. The Model
11 with Wahl Mechanism is also the First Adding and
Subtracting Typewriter. These improvements are the
latest contributions to typewriter progress, nnd they arc

field, is the present day pioneer in nil new developments

until 1774,, however, that the
Spaniards actually despatched
expeditions which reached the
north west coast in the neighborhood of Queen Charlotte Islands.
The most important factor in
the westward movement was the
fur trade, and the Hudson's Bay
Co. established in 1670, supplied
the Indian tribes with the fur
market they needed. It was not
until 1783 that the North West
company of Montreal was formed,
and the two companies speedily
became rivals. The Hudson's
Bay Company, fired by the activities of its rival, sent out exploration parties across the. continent. In 1774, Spain aroused by
the report of Russia's activities
along the northwest coast decided
to embark upon a definite scheme
of exploration and sent out Juan
Perez in the ship Santiago, who
reached the Queen Charlotte Islands in the same year. The
speaker also gave a graphic little
sketch of the gallant Behring,
the Russian explorer, who gave
his country her claim to Alaska,
and for whom the sand made a
winding sheet. The westward
movement had its forerunners in
Jonathan Carver, of Boston, the
first to speak of Columbia river
and to use the name of Oregon,
and Sir Alexander La Verendrye,
also of Alexander Mackenzie,
who in 1793 crossed the continent
and reached the Atlantic Ocean,
arriving finally at Bella Coola.
Mackenzie, the speaker pointed
out, was really the leader of the
great tide of immigration which
had since set in. Then there
were Lewis and Clark in 1804,
and in 1808 Simon Fraser followed
in Mackenzie's footsteps, and
reached the mouth of the Fraser
river in July of the same year.
Both Fraser and Mackenzie were
officers of the North West company who immediately proceeded
to follow up their successes.
Fraser in 1808 also discovered
Fort George, which is only just'
coming into its own today.
In 1776 the British government
sent out Captain James Cook on
a purely scientific expedition,
and he sailed for the north west
coast, making Vancouver Island
his destination because the Spaniards in Mexico had fortified the!
coast there upon the advice of
the King of Spain. The Spaniards thus became the first set-
tiers in British Columbia. While,
there the Spanish commandant,
however, had trouble with some
of the British trading vessels and
seized them. Mears thereupon
laid a formal complaint before
the British government and Pitt,
who was then in power, wrote a
curt note to Spain demanding
their restoration and the payment of indemnity. The demand
was refused, whereupon Great
Britain assembled a great naval
force at Spithead and in the end
it was decided that Great Britain
and Spain should each send out
a commissioner to settle the matter. The former nation sent
Captain George Vancouver and
the latter Bodega Quadra. The
two mot at Nootka in 1792 to discuss and decide the vexed ques-
tion, and in 1794 by the Nootka
treaty the whole question was
settled and Spain gave up her
exclusive claim to the north west
coast which afforded Great
Britain the opportunity to step
in. Russia, Spain, Great Britain,
France and the United States all
contended for the possession of
that region. Russia finally gave
up the struggle and Spain relinquished her claim to California.
The pace of the movement
across the western continent had
been accelerated in latter years
by improvements in railways.
What would have taken centuries
in the olden days could now be
accomplished in ten years. This1
advance wave of immigration
was now on the very frontier.
Western civilization faced that
of the Far East. What would be
the outcome of it? Would Christianity and high ideals prevent the
two races from coming into conflict. One thing was sure -the
Pacific was to be the ocean of
the future, as the Atlantic and
the Mediterranean had been the
oceans of the past.

At Alex. Manson's meeting
last night the Liberal candidate
testified to his belief in the power
of attorney-general, by asserting
that Mr. Bowser was responsible
for the fact that Vancouver was
five hundred miles nearer the
Panama canal than was Prince
Rupert.
P. Vlbert, inspector for the
Union Bank, returned to Vancouver, after spending two weeks
in the district. He was greatly
impressed with the development
of the tributary country. As a
result of his visit to the Valley,
it is probable that a branch of
the bank will soon be established
at Telkwa.

company.
The mild weather prevailing
here for the last two months has
agreeably surprised our visitors,
many of whom were inclined to
expect severe cold in this latitude.
Arrangements are being made
for the immediate freighting of
! supplies to points on the new
! Groundhog trail, in preparation
! for early work on the upper
! river.
M. C. Wanlich returned yesterday from a three month's visit
'to southern points. He was accompanied by A. R, McLeod, of
Bellingham, who will locate in
the district.
K. K. McLaughlin, who has
been in the hospital for three
weeks, suffering from an attack
of intercostal neuralgia, has
recovered, and is again able to
attend to business.
P. A. Brown came down from
the Rocher de Boule yesterday.
He says the winze has a vertical
depth of 55 feet from the apex
of the lower vein, with a remarkably fine showing of yellow copper.
J. A. Riley returned yesterday
from a visit to the Rocher de
Boule mine. He reports the
winze on the lower vein down
forty feet, with a showing of
five feet of solid chalcopyrite ore
of high grade.
J. H. Hetherington won the
billiard tournament at the Overland pool room last night, defeating Chas. O'Neil in a close game,

Before returning down the
1 river on Thursday, William Man-|
i son held a good meeting at New |
j Hazelton.   His speech there was
well received.   On his invitation,
I Rev. R. W. Lee spoke on  behalf
of the Liberal candidate.
McKinnon   Returns
Frank McKinnon, the well
known broker, returned on Thursday from a lengthy business visit
to Vancouver and other coast
cities. His trip from the Terminal City to Hazelton was made
in the record time of sixty-eight
hours. Frank states that the
outlook for a prosperous season
in Omineca are very bright, so
far as can be judged from the
attitude of the investors of the
coast. Many mining men have
turned their attention to this
district, the success of John F.
Cowan with the Rocher de Boule
causing many other operators to
look to this field for investment.
Others of our mines are attracting their due share of attention,
and we may look for quite an influx of mining capital during the
coming season.
Chinese Troubles
Nanking, March 22:��� Tang
Shao Yi was formally elected
Premier. The constitution, as
amended, approves twelve portfolios. President Yuan Shi Kai
reports that the situation at Peking is not alarming. Tang Shao
Yi also is confident that order
will be restored. Reports to the
war office say that the conditions
in the Provinces of Shen-Si and
Shan-Si have been greatly exaggerated. The government believes that a strong element of
intrigue in the north and the
south is endeavoring to create the
impression abroad and throughout the country that the Republican Government is impotent,
and that chaos must ensue unless
outside support of arms and men,
as well as money, is forthcoming.
LATEST ELECTION REPORT
Prince Rupert, Mar. 23: Reports received up to two o'clock
this afternoon indicate that Wm.
Manson will have a very easy
victory. Bella Coola, according
to word just received, is solid for
him. In Stewart a war is raging
between the Liberals and Socialists, with the result that the Conservatives will get practically the
entire vote, the people finding
they have nothing to expect from
any of the others. A wireless
despatch from Queen Charlotte
says the Islands will give a practically solid vote for the government candidate. Betting here is
three to one that all the opposition candidates will lose their deposits.
