Railhead Is Now
At Lome Creek
The G. T. P. track yesterday
reached Lome Creek, 134 miles
from Prince Rupert and only 36
miles from Skeena Crossing,
where thc railway bridge piers
are under construction. In six
weeks the steel has been laid on
over thirty miles of grade, progress during the last fortnight
having been at the rate of over
a mile a day. The lighter snowfall encountered as the tracklaying crew makes its way up the
river renders the work much
easier, while the mild weather
also favors progress with the
rails. It is probably that the
track will be laid to the bridge
before April 10.

VS SPEAKER EBERTS
Socialist Leader and House
Chairman Clash On Question of Admitting Visitors.
Yarmouth, Me., Feb. 15:-Three
trainmen were burned to deatli
when fire consumed the wreckage
of two Grand Trunk freight trains
which collided near here today.
Two were imprisoned in the demolished locomotive of one train
when the flames reached it. One,
Harry Corliss, was alive when
the rescuers arrived, but was
pinned in the wreckage and could
not be extricated. He begged to
be put out of misery. He was
hurriedly placed under the influence of chloroform just before
the fire drove his would-be rescuers back, and perished in the
flames.
Disaster at Salt Lake
Salt Lake City, Feb. 16:-Five
deaths and serious injuries to
three men resulted from the
wreck of an ore train early this
morning. A locomotive hauling
a number of ore-laden cars
jumped the track, the train rolling seventy feet down a steep
hill, crashing through the roofs
of the Citizens State Bank and
an adjoining tailor shop. Three
of the men who were killed were
sleeping in the latter place.
Four Killed- -Many Injured
.Altoona, Feb. 15:���Four passengers were killed outright and
twenty-five injured near here
today, in the wreck of the

cars were derailed and jumped
into the river.
Derailed Near Toronto
Toronto, Feb. 15:���Nine passenger cars of the Canadian Pacific express train due here today
from Vancouver left the rails
and plowed ahead on the ties.
The derailment was caused by a
gap in the rails resulting from
contraction due to the intensely
cold weather.    Fortunately,   the

Victoria, Feb. 16:- The liveliest
incident of the session was a
clash yesterday between Hawth-

and Speaker Eberts. The speaker
won the decision after half an
hour's tilting, when only Hawth-
ornthwaite and Williams voted
"That strangers be asked to
withdraw from the floor of the
house." The rest of the members voted nay.
By a note to the Speaker,
Hawthornthwaite had asked that
George Pettigrew, an Island coal
miner and organizer for the Mine
Workers of America, be invited
to a seat on the floor of the house.
Mr. Eberts declined to extend the
invitation, which can only be
given by him. Hawthornthwaite

MINING MEN OF PROVINCE
OOLD IMPORTANT MEETING
Western Branch of Canadian Mining Institute,
In Convention at Vancouver Yesterday,
Discusses Many Topics Relating To Mines
and Minerals of British Columbia.
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, February 16:���The
Western branch of the Canadian
Mining institute today completed
the work of a two-day session
here. Many able and valuable
papers on mining and cognate
subjects were read. One of the
most interesting presentments of
the convention was an address
on the Groundhog coal district,
in the Upper Skeena valley, by
G. S. Malloch, of the Geological
Survey of Canada. The delegates
manifested a lively interest in
the subject, which was treated
in a most thorough manner.
Mines Inspector Bowling, for Alberta, dealt with the coal areas
of that province and adjoining
fields in British Columbia.
In the course of a discussion
on methods of saving life in
mines, i t was stated by Dr.
McTavish that efforts would be
made to secure the patronage of
the Duke of Connaught, on his
forthcoming visit to British Columbia.
Provincial Mineralogist Robertson reviewed the yearly repoit
on mining as laid before the
house on Wednesday. It is a pre-
lished to the effect that British
Columbia had one of the highest
death rates in mines in America
were refuted by E. Jacobs, who
read an exhaustive paper in
which he demonstrated that correct calculation showed this province to have one of the lowest
death rates, instead of the highest, as insurance journals had
asserted. The deaths chargeable
to mining in British Columbia
last year were only three per
thousand. That year, however,
had been eliminated by the insurance organs, which had included in their calculations the
exceptionally bad years of 1901
and 1902.
H. M. Wolflin, of the United
States bureau of mines, in an
address on mine rescue systems,
said the work was international
and free, and the American authorities welcomed the Canadian
miners to make use of the demonstration station i n Seattle
free of charge. Already, he said,
the station had a number of Canadian students.

Midwinter Picnic
In Yukon Metropolis
A telegram received from Dawson last night indicates that the
northern metropolis is enjoying
the same kind of weather as
Hazelton is favored with this
month. Yesterday the people of
the Yukon capital held their first
midwinter fete, the feature of
which was dancing in the school
playgrounds in which hundreds
participated. People in other
climes may consider an outdoor
fete in the north in midwinter
an anomaly; but then, they have
many things to learn about the
"Frozen North" which, as many
newcomers in Hazelton have
learned, compares favorably, in
climate and other respects, with
many parts o f the southern
country.

Hazelton Men Send Prospecting Party

Vancouver, Feb. 15:   According to the Vancouver Sun,   the
new   Liberal   morning   paper,
ies protection service on the Pacific coast, in the House, there
followed loud complaint by Stevens of Vancouver, Shepard of
Nanaimo and Barnard of Victoria
regarding the manner in which
the Americans are poaching on
Canadian fishing grounds.
This brought forth an important statement from Minister of
Marine and Fisheries to the effect that the Government is taking steps to meet the situation.
These are that the obsolete protection boats Kestrel and Restless are to be sold. Three new
vessels are to be procured, two

(Special to The Miner)
Victoria, Feb. 16:���The most
notable feature of the week's
doings in the legislature was the
able and exhaustive address delivered by Hon. Richard McBride
in introducing his two resolutions, one dealing with the question of better terms from the
Dominion government and endorsing the course of the delegation of ministers which waited
on the federal administration
last November and the appointment of a commission to investigate the claims of British Columbia to more equitable treatment;
the other resolution dealing with
the matter of regulating Asiatic
immigration, reciting the various
unsuccessful attempts to deal
with the problem, the nonsuccess
of the efforts of the provincial
government having been due to
the action of the Laurier administration. The resolution proceeds to express great satisfaction at the announcement by
Premier Borden that the government of British Columbia will be
consulted in connection with the
proposed new treaty with Japan,
as far as considerations especially
affecting the province may be
concerned.
Upon the matter covered by
the first resolution, Mr. Borden
also announces that a commission
will be appointed. A complete
return of all papers referring to
the negotiations between the two
governments will be laid before
the house on Monday. The result of the negotiations constitute
a veritable triumph for the province, declares Mr. McBride, who
regards the concessions gained
from the federal government as
a most satisfactory consummation after the persistent efforts
of eleven'years, which have been
most energetic since the McBride
administration came into power.
In his speech the Premier
treated both questions historically. Great satisfaction, he said,
would be felt that these great
issues had assumed a phase of
definite finality. After the
speech, which lasted over an
hour and was marked by cheers
throughout its course, the debate
on the resolutions was adjourned
on the motion of H. C. Brewster.
Contrary to expectations, the
budget speech will not be delivered this week, the estimates
for the next fiscal year being as
yet incomplete. It is almost certain, however, that everything
will be ready for the presentation
of the annual financial statement
next week.

In view of the interest said to be taken in the northern coal in the Province, which coal, it
fields by the G. T. P. and other railway companies, as well as Sir
Donald Mann, it will probably profit the business men of Hazelton
to inaugurate a campaign for the construction of a railway from
this point to Groundhog. Hazelton is now, ancl always has been,
the distributing point for the Upper Skeena country, and there is
no good reason why it should not retain that position. It is easily
possible to obtain a water grade for a railway from here to Groundhog, and the slight difference in distance will be more than compensated by the elimination of the heavy grades which would be
necessary on any other route.

The announcement that negotiations between the provincial
and Dominion governments looking to the settlement of the questions of better terms and Asiatic immigration have reached a point'ports to be placed in bunkers for
which justifies the expectation of a definite and mutually satisfactory agreement, will be hailed with the greatest of pleasure
throughout the province. Mr. Borden has stated that a commission to deal with the financial relations between the two governments will be appointed without delay, and also intimates that the
commission on Asiatic immigration will give heed to the representations of British Columbia in dealing with the questions in which
this province has a direct interest. The change from the attitude
of the late federal government is as gratifying as it is marked.

! THE OMINECA MINER,  SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1912
Precious Metal Unlikely To
Occur In Large Masses,
Says An Authority.
THE LARGEST NUGGET
Interesting Article on Notable Mineral
Discoveries��� Conditions Responsible
for Dissemination of Gold In Quartz
Veins Explained.
Romancers have frequently
amused themselves and their
readers by accounts of the unlimited production of gold by
some alchemist, or by the discoverer of some phenomenal
mine. The economic results are
easily predicted. Some authorities think our present worldwide high prices are due to increased production of gold���that
is, to a lessened value of the gold
standard. If the production
should increase abnormally,
doubtless that value would drop
further until a pair of boots
would cost as much in gold today
as they did once in Confederate
notes or, still earlier in Continental paper. Is there any danger
that this may happen ? In a recent review in the London Daily
Telegraph of a lecture on the
purchasing power of money, a
writer saidjthat "it is conceivable
that the day might come when
the discovery of unlimited quarries of pure gold would compel
the use of some other article for
the measure of values." On
which T. A. Richard, writing in
The Mining and Scientific Press
(San Francisco), comments as
follows:
"Those of us who are familiar
with gold-mining, and more especially the big bonanzas of the
world, need not strain our imagination to conceive of an ore-
body or even a mass of gold big
enough to upset international
monetary standards. Many a
prospector frying his bacon at
the camp-fire and stimulated by
a reconcentrated cup of coffee,
must have seen visions of a
golden mountain or a streak of
pure gold that ran across creation as if it would never stop.
Every now and then we hear of
fabulous mineral discoveries, like
that of Bitter Creek in June,
1910, and when the irresponsible
scribe in "The Daily Scream"
has exhausted his vocabulary he
usually ends by talking about
mountain of gold.'
"When the stampede to the
Australian diggings was at its
height in 1852, the ignorant emigrants having heard that the
gold was found in quartz, and
not knowing that pervasive mineral, supposed it was 'quarts,'
and hence expected to gather the
gold in pints and pails. The fact
was related to me by R. J. Dunn,
the Australian geologist, who as
a boy went to the diggings at
that time.
"Well! And why not? We may
laugh at the simpleton from the
farm and we may sneer (and we
do) at the perfervid scribbler of
the untechnical newspaper, but
it is doubtful whether even that
peripatetic philosopher known as
the man-in-the-street could give
adequate reasons for the improbability of such a golden discovery.
For instance, what was the biggest mass of native copper ever
found? Of course, it was in the
Lake Superior region. It was in
1857 at the Minesota (not Minnesota) mine in the Ontonagon
district. At a shallow depth there
was discovered a mass of copper
46 feet long, with a maximum
thickness of 8 1-2 feet. The total
weight actually recovered was
420 tons. Twenty men labored
for fifteen months t o remove it
from its encasing rock; they tried
to do so by exploding kegs of
powder, and finally extricated
the copper by cutting it into
fragments with chisels. The
chips alone weighed 27 tons. A
group of similar bodies of native
copper having an aggregate
weight of 600 tons was extracted
from the Bay State mine forty-
five years ago. The 420-ton lump
was 80 per cent pure copper and
at $400 per ton was worth at that
time $168,000. But a mass of
pure gold weighing 420 tons is
worth $252,000,000. The discovery of such a mass would add
largely to the number of those
sojourning in lunatic asylums
and would paralyze the stock
exchanges of the world for more
than a few palpitating minutes."
No such masses of gold as this,
of course, have ever come to
light. Yet gold in great quantities has been won in brief
periods. California river - beds
yielded $81,294,700 in 1851 alone,
and the shallow diggings of Victoria gave $63,000,000 in 1853. In
the Klondike, more recently, one
miner cleaned up $46,000 in eight
hours, and took out three-quarters of a million from a claim
about 80 by 50 feet. Most of this
gold was in coarse pellets and
nodules, and yet the largest nug-

largest lump ever found
picked up near Dunolly, Victoria,
Australia, in 1869 and weighed
190 pounds. Another, weighing
184 pounds and including some
quartz, brought in nearly $42,000.
There have been others nearly
as big; yet this is very far from
masses such as the huge copper
nugget described above, and
farther still from a "quarry" or
"mountain" of pure gold. The
nearest- approach to this, as yet
imaginary, possibility seems to
be Mount Morgan, in Queensland, Australia, a hill about 500
feet high, the crest of which was
a "gossan" containing several
ounces of gold per ton.
"This has been excavated in
successive benches, so that it approximates to the 'quarries' of
gold ore mentioned by the writer
in The Daily Telegraph. But the
workings are now far below the
foot of the hill. However, they
have yielded a quantity of gold
so great as to render Mount Morgan unique i n the history of
mining. Since its discovery in
1886 to the end of October of the
last year, this ore deposit has
yielded 3,680,000 ounces of gold
worth $73,000,000, besides 33,000
tons of copper. The company
owning the mine has distributed
$37,500,000 in dividends.
"However, this is far from
being a 'quarry of pure gold,' for
the ore has averaged less than
half an ounce per ton.
"Reviewing the evidence, we
find that the biggest mass of
native copper ever found by man
weighed 420 tons, the biggest
chunk of native silver about 1 1-2
tons, while the biggest nugget
of native gold weighed only 190
pounds.
"The facts of experience are
capable of explanation by scientific theory. Gold is a substance
with difficulty soluble but readily
precipitated. Hence it can not
travel far in the
waters that build
When thus on the
easily arrested by a percipitating
agent, so that the conditions
favoring a large aggregate of
the metal are rare. Gold is widely
diffused by nature, both in the
rocks and in the sea, but the
largest lump ever found weighed
only 190 pounds.
"The nice balance of chemical
equilibrium is probably potent in
determining the distribution of
gold within the zone of oxidation,
but as regards its dispersion relative to depth it can be asserted
that temperature and pressure
are the dominant factors, for the
increase of both favors solution,
while the decrease of both promotes precipitation. That is why,
in a broad geological way, ore
deposits become impoverished in
depth. In the approach to surface the decrease of temperature
and the lowering of the pressure
compel precipitation, just as in
depth the opposite conditions increasingly prevail. From this
we  conclude  that  the   biggest

HAZELTON DEFEATS
TELKWA AT HOCKEY
Local Men Win Interesting
Match from Valley Team
On Rink of Latter.
The stalwarts of the Hazelton
hockey team, with a number of
their supporters, journeyed to
Telkwa early in the week, returning yesterday with the scalp of
the valley players. The match,
which was played on Wednesday
afternoon, was an exciting and
hard-fought contest, which was
witnessed by an enthusiastic
crowd. The play on both sides
was fast and clever, and the
exhibition of Canada's great winter game was regarded as one of
the best of the season. In the
first half Hazelton succeeded in
finding the net for one tally,
while each team scored a goal in
the last half.
The Telkwa team, although one
of the newest in the district, put
up a stiff fight, several of the G.
T. P. stars showing excellent
form. The Hazelton men, however, again proved the excellence
of their team play, and gained a
meritorious victory. Frank Charleson was referee. There was
some speculation on the result,
at even money.
The line-up of the team was as
follows:
Telkwa Hazelton
McDonald goal Slinger
Miles point       Morison
Brown cover      Johnson
Moffat rover      Ramsay
Bampton center     Fawcett
Wallace right Aldous
Norman left Kenney
A return match, on the Hazelton rink, is scheduled for February 24, when the local team
hopes to show Telkwa as good a
time as the valley men arranged
for their visitors.

Carnival In Evening
Speiial Correspondence.
A very enjoyable masquerade
carnival was held on the Telkwa
skating rink on Wednesday evening. Unfortunately the ice was
in very poor condition but still it
did not seem to spoil the enjoyment of either masqueraders or
sightseers. There was a large
turnout and considering the a-
mount of material obtainable in
the valley the costumes were
very creditable to the wearers.
Four prizes were given, three
for the best ladies' fancy costumes and one for the best male
costume. Mrs. Eggleston, who
was very well got up as Bo-Peep,
took first, Mrs. Wallace who
looked the part she represented
"A Rose" was second and Miss
M. Dommersnes dressed charmingly as an "Irish Peasant Girl"
took third. Many other charming
costumes were worn by the
ladies. Frank Charleson and
Mike Sweeney, who were well
got up as Alfonse and Gaston,
divided first prize in the other
class.

Only Our Fair Share
"The only other explanation is
the law of compensation. My
honorable iriend knows British
Columbia has not been very
generously dealt with in the past
few years. This is a government
of retribution and justice."
In this way Hon. F. D. Monk
in the House of Commons replied
to the criticisms of the opposition
that British Columbia was getting
more that its share of money for
public buildings, etc.
Mr. A. K. McLean of Lunenburg introduced the question by
drawing attention to the fact
that British Columbia is the only
province in which a vote is proposed in excess of current year.
He wanted to know if the thing
was a tribute to the victory of
the friends of the govnrnment in
the Coast Province.
Mr. Monk said he was surprised at such a question. The
prospective opening of the Panama ('anal, he said, would increase business immensely i n
Vancouver and Victoria.
Hon. Frank Oliver put in a
kick because the total vote for
public buildings for British Columbia stands at $724,000, while
Alberta and Saskatchewan together get only $746,000.

No Lost Arts
It is no doubt highly romantic
to think of "lost arts," about
which the ancients knew everything and we know nothing, but
sometimes these romances are
wrong. Tempering of copper,
says a writer in The Mining and
Scientific Press (San Francisco),
is popularly supposed to be "one.
of the lost arts," but as a matter
of fact is one that was never
possest to any higher degree
than at present.   He remarks:
"It is safe to say that copper
has never been tempered at any
time by ony one, as it does not
possess the necessary properties.
Copper can be hardened in a
number of ways, the easiest being to plunge the finished article
into moulten antimony or arsenic;
the resulting alloy formed on the
surface is exceedingly hard and
brittle. Recent research i n
Mexico has shown that the tools
there supposed to be made of
hard copper were made by smelting mixed ores of copper, nickel
and cobalt; the resulting alloy,
sometimes like monel metal, was
naturally hard. None of these
old tools are of a quality equal
to those which can now be made."
The work of constructing an
irrigation system for the purpose

EARLY DAYS
IN CASSIAR
Oldtimer Tells of Discovery
of Placers Which Made
Northern B. C. Famous.
LOST MEN FOUND RICHES
Interesting Reminiscences of Pioneer of
Dease Lake District ��� Says Cassiar Is
Rich Country and Offers Splendid
Opportunities for Prospecting.
An interesting talk on the early
history of Cassiar as a placer
district was given to the Province
by C. M. Wright, now of San
Francisco, who is visiting Vancouver.
"There was forty thousand in
gold," said Mr. Wright. "We
divided it into two pokes. Each
of my two Indians carried a poke.
Our mule assisted when the Indians got tired. I travelled light,
my heaviest load being two big
revolvers that the storekeeper
had given us.
"Meet any person on the way
who wanted the gold more than
you did?
"In the summertime up beyond 57, the nights are very
light. We journeyed by night
and in the day we slept. At least
the Indians slept. As for me, I
was interested in the raw gold
we were taking out.
"Yes, the Cassiar in '76 was a
bit wild. The Indians were restless in that country ancl all the
expert gamblers and thugs, who
crossed the plains in '49, were
up there���or headed for there.
Yes, I was a bit nervous on that
mush thirty-six years ago when
I helped take out to Fort Wrang-
gel the first really large clean-up
in the Cassiar district.
"And, of course, that forty
thousand represented your early
activities as a pioneer in British
Columbia?
"No, I left the Cassiar only $2
richer than when I went in.
"But I was only a bit of a lad.
I think I was 22. I had the best
time of my life up there in Cassiar those many years ago. 1
got $8 a day for packing that
gold out and I earned the
money."
C. W. Wright is nearly 60 years
of age. If fortune did not smile
on him in the old Cassiar days
she has beamed upon him since
and he is one of San Francisco's
rich.
"There are golden millions in
the Cassiar today," said Mr.
Wright, "and if I were young,
and in the mining business, I'd
go back to Cassiar. I believe that
British Columbia is the richest
undeveloped mineral area in the
whole world."
"Very few people," began the
San Franciscan, in recounting his
early adventures i n Northern
British Columbia, "remember the
discovery of the Cassiar and the
sensational effect it had upon the
people of two hemispheres. I
was one of the first men to go
north and I got into the stampede
at its flood.   We went by water
to Fort Wrangel, on the Alaska
side of the boundary and then
we went up the Stikine river to
Telegraph Creek.
"Dease Lake was our objective
point and I shall ever remember
the trials of that trip from Telegraph Creek to the old Hudson's
Bay trading post near Dease
lake.
"My supplies were not adequate for the journey���I was a
mere boy and unused to the tribulations of the prospector���and
after we arrived at Dease Lake I
lived for thirty days on oatmeal
-oatmeal alone, oatmeal porridge.
"Surely at the end of that
time," was the facetious interjection of the interviewer, "you
must have had a good command
of Gaelic.
"Well, I did well on the diet,"
smiled Mr. Wright, "and though
it is true that for a time I rather
disliked the sight of oats, I have
always insisted since on having
oatmeal on the bill of fare at
home.''
Serious once more, the old-
timer told of the exciting days
at Dease Lake in '75-'76. "The
Cassiar gold fields were discovei'-
ed by two French-Canadians,"
he said, "Dease and Thibette
were two young men employed
at the Hudson's Bay post at the
headwaters of the Mackenzie.
For three years these two men,
and I believe they have long since
passed away, were lost in the
semi-Arctic wilderness. Their
lives were saved by friendly Indians, who picked them up and
gave them food and clothing.
"They lived for a time with a
tribe whose hunting grounds included the Dease Lake district.
Dease,  while  hunting,   became
very thirsty one day.    Lying on
his chest, he undertook to drink
out of a little brook.   The water
was clear as it bubbled over the
little pebbles. Dease, as he drank,
observed in the bottom of the
rivulet,   bright  colored  stones.
He thrust his hand in and picked
them up.   These 'stones' were
gold nuggets, each as large as an
egg.   That was the discovery of
gold in the  Cassiar.     Because
j Dease happened to drink out of
that little brook  that  emptied
: itself into the lake that afterwards bore his name, explorations  began which   resulted in
��� the gold rush to northern British
[Columbia,    which   resulted   indirectly in   later  years  in the
j wild stampede to Alaska and the
i Yukon.
"Because a lost French-Canadian sought to quench his thirst
on a hot day nearly forty years
ago," continued Mr. Wright, "the
great north country was made to
give up its wealth and its penalty
toman -well, delve into the archives at Victoria or Seattle or
glance over the files of the Royal
Northwest Mounted Police at the
head office at Regina.
"I knew both Dease and Thibette, his partner," he went on.
"They were very interesting
personalities. Shortly after Dease
picked up the big nuggets he
met an Indian who said he could
show him to the big salt chuck-
meaning the salt water. So Dease
found his way eventually to Vic
toria and the tale of his find was
heralded to the four corners of
the earth."
