New Lists Now Being Prepared���Applications for Registration Must Be In Before April 7 ��� Officials Who
May Register Voters���New Regulations.
The voters lists of the province
have been cancelled and new
lists are being prepared. Applications for registration must
be filed before April 7 with the
registrar of voters, ln this district the necessary declarations
may be made before any justice
of the peace, notary public, commissioner for taking affidavits,
provincial constable, government
agent, assessor, mining recorder,
deputy mining recorder, postmaster or Indian agent. Every
voter, no matter how long his
name has been on the list, is required to register anew. The
court of revision will be held on
May 19. All foreigners must
produce their naturalization papers when applying for registration.
The chief reason for the re-
registration is the fact that a
large proportion of voters are
registered as living at different
addresses than those at which
they are now located. In view
of the necessity for redistribution in the near future, it is necessary that voters should be reg
istered for their present addresses. It is also necessary for
the proper working of the new
jurors' act..
Readers of the Miner should
lose no time in applying for registration.
Noted Physician Invited

Wrangel, Mar. 8:��� Skookum
Jim, of Klondike fame, reports
the discovery of gold on Silver
creek, averaging 50 cents to the
pan. The strike was made in
British Columbia, about eightv-
five miles from Telegraph Creek.
Jim prospected on the headwaters of the Pelly river and
worked south toward Dease Lake
but struck nothing until reaching the south slope. The strike
was made about December 25.

easier worked than the Dawson

Ladies Take The Trail
The first ladies to travel with
dog teams to the Groundhog district will be Mrs. F. A. Jackson
and Miss Carter, who leave for
the northern coalfield today with
Mr. Jackson, who is taking a
crew in to build camps for the
Groundhog Basin Anthracite
Syndicate. This concern will do
considerable development work
on a large group of claims. Mr.
Jackson will also supervise the
work on the Laidlaw & Jackson
properties, and expects to meet
Mr. Laidlaw here in June. Frank
says extensive work will be undertaken in various parts of the
big coalfield this season. Many
toboggan loads of supplies have
already gone in.

Hazelton Bridge Guaranteed
Advices have been received stating that the high level bridge
across the Bulkley river, connecting Hazelton and the surrounding
district with the railway station at South Hazelton, will be constructed at an early date. Efforts are being made to have the
government undertake this necessary work; but the building of
the bridge is guaranteed by the Grand Trunk Pacific. As the
only feasible means of connecting the permanent road system of
the district with the railway, the bridge is a prime necessity, and
the news that its immediate construction has been decided upon
will be gratefully received by the permanent residents of the
Officials of the railway company have selected a site (or

First Democractic President To Be Inaugurated In Twenty
Years Takes Oath of Office ��� Personnel of Cabinet���
Bryan Made Secretary of State.
Washington, March 4: ��� For
the first time in twenty years,
a Democratic president was today the central figure in the inauguration ceremonies. The
customary formalities were observed, and Woodrow Wilson is
now president of the United
States. The lofty tone of the
president's inaugural address is
generally taken as an indication
that the new administration will
be sanely progressive. Thousands of suffragettes marched to
the White House grounds. Their
appearance resulted in considerable disturbance.
London, Mar. 6:��� The British
press comments most favorably on President Wilson's inaugural address.
Washington, Mar. 3:���The final
selection of the cabinet was made
today.   Following is the draft:
Secretary of state���W.J.Bryan.

Preparing Ore Exhibit
Mining men of the district are
requested to submit ore samples
of suitable size, with information as to location, depth, and
contents, to the board of trade,
for inclusion in the exhibit which
will be displayed at the Imperial
Institute in London.
Off to Manson Creek
Dr. B. F. Stanwood and W. B.
Steele left yesterday for their
claims in the Manson camp. Dr.
Stanwood was the first mining
man to call attention to the
quartz possibilities of the well
known placer district, and he has
acquired a number of excellent
silver-lead and dry silver prospects. These he will develop as
far as possible during the season.
Mr. Steele also owns mineral
claims, while both have valuable
placer ground.
More Manson Men
General Manager Fraser, of
the Royal Standard Investment
Company, a Vancouver concern
with large placer holdings in the
Omineca river district, is expected to reach Hazelton on tonight's
train with a crew of fourteen
miners, and will proceed at once
to the company's property to begin the season's work.
Kaiser Going Up
Berlin, Mar. 7:���Elaborate pre

Caused His Son's Death
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, Mar. 6:��� Stanley
Crowley, aged fourteen, dropped
dead yesterday at Collingwood,
near Vancouver, from a kick administered by his father in a dispute following the lad's failure to
attend school. The father. Thorn-
is Crowley, is fifty years of age,
with nine children, the youngest
born yesterday. Crowley fainted
twice while giving evidence at
the inquest today. The coroner's
jury found that there was no
criminal intent and returned a
verdict of death by misadventure.
The father was liberated.
Dynamite Kills Many
Baltimore. Mar. 7:-While 350
tons of dynamite was being
transferred from a barge to a
steamer, an explosion occurred
in which fifty were killed and
hundreds injured. Many of the
injured will die.
German Naval Disaster
Berlin, Mar. 6:���During night
maneuvers of the German fleet
in the North Sea on Tuesday

the latter with a loss of life officially estimated at seventy-one.
Greek Victory Reported
Athens, Mar. 6:���It is officially
reported that Janina, the great
western fortress of the Turks,
has surrendered to the Greek
forces, with thirty-two thousand
I prisoners of war.
Ottawa, Mar. 6.-With the object of forcing a general election
on the naval proposals, the Liberals continue their obstructive
tactics in opposition to the dreadnought measure. The house has
now been in continuous session
for sixty hours, and there is still
no end of the blockade in sight.
For the first time in the history
of the Canadian parliament, no
attempt is being made to debate
the question at issue. The war-
between government and opposition, which presents many unprecedented features, is likely to
continue until midnight on Saturday, when the house will adjourn automatically. The contest is likely to be renewed on
Monday. The second reading of
the naval measure was carried
with a government majority of
thirty. The opposition is now
making its big fight in committee of the house.
that the Liberals have spoken
over two million words. The
silting has now lasted over one
hundred hours, the daily cost to
the public being ten thousand
dollars. No relief is yet visible.
(Many Liberals have spoken as
often as five times each and at
great length. H. B. Ames appeared with a nightcap and an
air pillow.
It is rumored here that Canadian Steel and allied interests
[are behind the Liberal tactics,
and if the latter are successful
in forcing an election they will
receive financial aid.

Britannia Mines' Record
(Special in Tha Ulnar)
Vancouver, Mar. (!: At the
annual meeting of the Britannia j
Mines today, it was announced i
that extensive improvements and
additions to the plant would be
made immediately. The president, Ex-Governor Dewdney,
said the progress of development
had been such that the property
can now be classed as one of the
great copper mines of the continent. There will be two thousand
men on the pay-roll within two
years. Over $1,000,000 was expended on developments and improvements last year. Ore is
now being treated by the new
English oil concentration process
with which most wonderful results have been obtained since
its installation. The directors
will adhere to the policy of non-
recognition of the miners' union.
The company is controlled by
New York capitalists.
(Special ti' The Ulnar)
Vancouver. Mar. 7: ��� Three
sessions have been held here by
the labor commission, which has
heard a good deal of evidence.
One witness, a construction laborer who had worked in railway
camps for thirty years, said he
knew of at least one foreman
who admitted getting a rakeotf-
from the employment agencies
of half the fees, frequently discharging men to increase the
Mood of fees. The witness wrote
a number of names for the commission.
Representatives of labor organizations urged the improvement of camp conditions and
working hours. Payment in
cash, instead of by cheek, was
asked for.
Women witnesses gave evidence concerning the long hours
and small pay received by women
employees of stores. They urged
that store employees should have
a half-holiday weekly.
Tells of Groundhog Coal
(Special  to The Miner)
Nanaimo, Mar. G:���An interesting paper on the coal measures
or the great Groundhog district
was read before the western
branch of the Canadian Mining
Institute, by George W. Evans, a
Seattle expert, who has spent
several months in an examination of the big Skeena river coalfield. The meeting, which opened on Tuesday, is the fourteenth
annual gathering. A large number of British Columbia mining
men are in attendance- THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1913

What London Thinks
They say in the London clubs
that in Germany there is a general belief that war with France
is almost inevitable. It is expected in the spring. Austria
and Russia have both mobilised
against each other, and in Germany large masses of troops
have been concentrated at strategic points along the frontier.
Wagons, materials for bridges,
and foodstuffs have been quietly
collected. If peace is preserved
it will be well nigh a miracle.
The real reason for the postponement of Mr. Lloyd-George's
land campaign is the critical
character of the international
situation. The government
knows that the storm may burst
any moment, and they are not
eager to start a crusade which
might be suddenly swamped by
a great European war. It is significant that in Canada the gravity of the crisis is better understood than in England. Mr.
Borden knows the facts. ���London Opinion.

One of the most important
legislative enactments of the

the game laws of the province.

other things, that it shall be unlawful for any resident of the

or to carry firearms of any description, or airguns, or any de-

vice for the purpose of capturing
any animal or bird, without first
taking out a licence. In addition
to taking out a license, each
hunter will be required to wear a
badge showing the number of his
license. These licenses will not
be transferable, Any breach of
the act involves cancellation of a
hunter's license. Licenses will
not be issued to boys under sixteen except upon the written request of parents or guardians,
who shall undertake that such
boys, when carrying firearms,
will always be under their supervision or that of some responsible
license holder.
There are three classes of license provided for: an ordinary
license to carry firearms and
hunt birds and deer (other than
moose, wapiti and cariboo), costing $2.50; a general license to
hunt game birds and animals,
$5.00 ; a special license to carry
firearms and trap. $10.00.
Holders of a general or special
license must, within fourteen
days of the date of expiration,
return the license to the provincial game warden with a sworn
statement of the number of each
species of big game or animals
trapped. Prospectors having
free miners' certificates may obtain ordinary licenses during the
open season while actually engaged in prospecting; so may
farmers and their sons hunting
on the land on which they permanently reside. Any firearm
found in the possession of a person not having a license may be
seized and confiscated.
It is provided that no person
shall act as a hunter's guide
without having taken out a license. Every guide so licensed
must require every person whom
he serves as guide to produce for
inspection that person's firearms
license, and failure to do so constitutes a breach of the act. All
licensed guides shall, within
fourteen days of the expiration
of their license, furnish the provincial game warden with a
statement showing the number
of persons whom they have served, the number of days they
were engaged in hunting, and
the number of different species
of big game killed.
Any resident of the province
who wishes to obtain a permit to
export any animal or bird shall
make written application to the
game warden, enclosing the sum
of one dollar, this being the fee
for such permit.
Any person found between one
hour after sunset and one hour
before sunrise with a headlight
of any description and firearms
in his possession commits a
breach of this act, and shall be
liable to be arrested without warrant by any game warden or
police officer.
The privilege heretofore accorded storekeepers of keeping
game for sale for a period of five
days after the expiration of the
close season for such game, is
withdrawn, as is also the privilege heretofore accorded the private owners of game killed during the open season of keeping
such game for a period of ten
days after the expiration of the
open season.
It is provided it shall be unlawful for any person to run deer
at any time with dogs, or allow
dogs to run after deer. The old
act allowed hunting of deer with
dogs by permission of the game
warden. The hunting of birds
with dogs between April 15 and
August 1, both inclusive, is prohibited.
Various   penalties  of   severe
character are provided for any
and all infractions of the act.
Any fines imposed under the act
must be paid forthwith, and, in
default of payment, the offender
shall be liable to imprisonment,
with or without hard labor, for a
period not exceeding six months,
unless otherwise provided in the
act. The old act provided for
imprisonment not to exceed thirty days.
Every trader in furs is required
to make a return to the game
warden not later than August 1
in each year, stating the number
and variety of pelts bought by
him in this province during the
twelvemonth preceding. Failure
to make such return involves a
penalty up to $100, and, in default, to imprisonment not exceeding three months, and if the
offender be a corporation it shall
be liable to a fine not exceeding
Persons interfering with* the
game wardens or constables in
the discharge of duties under the
act shall be liable to fines not exceeding $100 or to imprisonment
up to two months.
Smithers and Smithereens
It is reported, on what appears
to be good authority, that the
railway divisional point for the
Bulkley Valley will be located
eight miles west of Telkwa, the
townsite to be known as Smithers. A group of Valley men was
discussing the proposed town the
other day, when Frank Charle-'
son, who owns a piece of land
adjoining the townsite, was
asked what he intended to do
with his property. "Well," replied the Telkwa man, "I think
I'll cut it up into small pieces
and call it Smithereens."
