VOL. I, NO. 14
HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1911
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
SALE OF LOTS
Provincial Government and
G. T. P. will Offer South
Hazelton at Auction.
THREE BLOCKS RESERVED
Lots Held for Selection of Business Men
���Date of Sale at Vancouver, December 14, at Victoria, December 19������
Townsite to be Cleared Immediately.
At Vancouver, on December
14, the Grand Trunk Pacific and
the government of British Columbia will sell by auction lots in
South Hazelton. On the 19th the
sale will be continued at Victoria.
The G. T. P. announces that
three blocks,- in the proposed
business center, will be reserved
from the sale, to~ allow the business men of the present town to
select suitable locations for their
new places of business.
Following the official announcement of the approaching sale by
auction of lots in the South
Hazelton townsite, a contract has
been let for the preliminary
clearing, which will cover twenty
acres in the immediate vicinity of
the station site. O'Neil & La-
rocque, the contractors, expect to
have the work completed within
a month. In the meantime preparations will be made for the
extension of the cleared area
until the entire townsite is free
of timber,
The policy of the G. T. P. provides for the grading of the more
important streets and the building of a handsome railway station, which is to be completed in
the spring before the steel reaches
the town.
Engineers are now engaged in
laying out the station grounds
and yards. Plans for the bridge
which is to connect Hazelton
with the new town are under
consideration.
Tracklaying Begins
Kitselas: The long tunnel at
this point has been completed, and
it is announced that the laying of
steel from Van Arsdol, the end
of the firsl section, to Skeena crossing, will proceed without delay.
Surveyor May Be
Lost In Northland
Friends of George Milligan,
who is well known in this district,
will read with interest the following despatch from Edmonton:
"In the belief that G. B. Milligan has lost his way in the north
country, two brothers are in Edmonton and are making enquiries.
If nothing transpires within a
few days a search party will be
sent out. Fifteen months ago
Milligan went to Hudson's Hope
in the Peace River district to do
some surveying for an Old Country syndicate. He was heard
from frequently for some time,
but the last letter was received
three months ago stating that he
would start for Edmonton in a
few. days. For over a month the
brothers have waited for his appearance. They state that the
brother was to have left Hudson's
Hope about two and a half months
ago, and should have been here
six weeks ago.
THE HOCKEY PROGRAM
Players are Practicing Hard for Christmas Game - Fawcett Elected
Captain
Regular practices of the hockey
team have been fixed forTuesday
and Friday afternoons. At the
first practice of the week the
members of the team unanimously elected A. E. Fawcett captain.
The new leader, though one of
the younger players, has proved
himself an adept at the game,
and bids fair to justify his selection. He will have the unanimous Support of his fellow players.
Billy Larmor is busy coaching
the team, and is confident it will
make a good showing against the
G. T. P. engineers in the game
scheduled for Christmas. The
lineup for the opening match will
not be announced until after one
or two more practices have demonstrated the capabilities of the
recruits.
Mild weather, causing the
flooding of the lake, prevented
the regular practice yesterday,
but good ice is to be expected
before Tuesday, when the next
practice will be had. The boys
are entering into the season's
work with vim, and should soon
round into condition for a fast
game.
A large party of young people
enjoyed a skating party at the
lake on Thursday evening, the
occasion being American Thanksgiving Day.
LOTS SELL HIGH IN RUPERT
Sale   of  Section Two which Concludes
Today Proving Successul Beyond Expectations.
(Special  to The Miner)
Prince Rupert, Dec. 2: -Many
investors from outside points were
'present or  represented  at  the
[ sale of Grand Trunk Pacific lots
I in Prince Rupert, section 2, which
{opened on Thursday in the Em-
' press theater.    The success of
j the sale has so far been above
'expectations.   Thursday's   sales
numbered 160 lots, which brought
an average price of $815.   Up to
last evening,  411 lots had been
sold out of a total of 585, the
aggregate   prices   reaching  the
sum   of   $390,000.     The    sale
will probably close today.   One
of its results, already being manifested, is a general revival of
interest in real estate throughout
the rest of the city, and many
transactions are reported, at advanced prices.
HAVE
ACKNOWLEDGED THEIR GUILT
Trial of Dynamiters Who Destroyed Times
Building in Los Angeles Ends Sensationally
with Their Confession-State Possessed Conclusive Evidence���Conviction was Assured.
Los Angeles, Dec. 1:��� -The
McNamara trial culminated today in a sensational climax when
both the brothers pleaded guilty,
James B. admitting having dynamited the Times building a year
ago, when many lives were lost.
His brother, John J., indicted
with him, also confessed to destroying the Llewellyn Iron
Works.
Bot1! the prisoners will be sentenced next Tuesday. It is
thought the penalty of life imprisonment will be imposed, although the State may hold that
in view of their confession some
consideration should be given in
fixing the sentences.
"I'm glad it is over. It has
been the greatest strain  of my
i life," said Clarence Darrow, attorney for the McNamaras.
"There was no other course to
[adopt, as the facts were over-
; whelmingly against the prisoners
and the State knew every loophole."
The   Times   explosion    killed
! twenty-one.  Harrison Grey Otis,
j editor and owner of the paper,
i whose life was aimed at, was not
j in the building.   Since the arrest
of the McNamaras, through the
; instrumentality    of     Detective
Burns, labor leaders who asserted
the   innocence of the prisoners
! have been using every means to
| assist the defence,   and  a long-
drawn-out legal battle was sum-
| marily ended by ��� the confession
j of the criminals.
A Serious Oversight
Ottawa: The date allowed for
the completion of the G.T.P. has
expired. The company overlooked the necessity (or an extension and hurried action was necessary to avoid lapse of the charter.
Borden Government's Majority
Forty-Four on First Division
Ottawa, Nov. 30:   On the first
division   since   the   opening  of
parliament, the Borden administration last night scored a majority of 44.   Adding the Speaker
and the member-elect for Yukon,
who is not yet here, the government has a majority of 46.    One
hundred and ninety-eight members voted, many having paired,
as the division was on a matter
| of procedure.   The vote was fol-
j lowed by the election of P.  E.
j Blondin as deputy speaker, after
! a verbal fusillade and charges of
l disloyalty by the Liberals.
The  Premier and Sir Wilfrid
Laurier were both cheered- by
their adherents as they cast their
first votes of the session. It was
a strenuous day. The ministers
are clearing arrears of work with
unexampled celerity. The House
will adjourn next Thursday for
Christmas.
H. H. Stevens, member for
Vancouver, is proposing the submission to the House of a measure similar to the Natal Act,
with the purpose of excluding
Asiatics from British Columbia.
The ministers have asked for all
information bearing on the question.
Five of Family
Burned to Death
(Special  to The Miner)
New Westminster, Dec. 1:
Thomas Moore and four of his
eight children were burned to
death on Tuesday in a fire which
destroyed their dwelling on a
ranch near Port Mann. Lieutenant-governor Paterson is the
owner of the ranch, of which
Moore had been caretaker for five
years. The four children who
lost their lives were all under ten
years of age. The five bodies,
hardly recognizable, were recovered from the ruins. Three
boys of the family, who were
sleeping downstairs, escaped
from the house and were found
huddled in the barn. The father,
who had been reading while waiting for the expected return of his
wife and eldest daughter from
Seattle, is supposed to have fallen
asleep and knocked over the
lamp.

Bold Robber Takes  $1,000 from Teller
of a Vancouver Bank
 >
(Special in The Minor)
Vancouver,   Nov.   29:    "Give
me one thousand dollars or I'll
i shoot you on the spot," said an
unmasked robber to teller McLeod
[ of the Grandview branch of  the
J Royal Bank of Canada at  noon
! today, when no customers  were
in the bank and  the two clerks
were busy.   The teller complied
with the demand.    The. bandit
escaped, though the street was
crowded.   The same bank  was
robbed of $500 a year ago by two
men  at   mid-day.     No clue in
either case;
Will Stagger Germany
London, Dec.l: The Daily Express, alluding to the rumor cur-
j rent to the effect that Winston
, Churchill, first Lord of the Admiralty, contemplates a huge
navy loan, states that undoubtedly Canada means to contribute
either in cash or in kind. The
result, the Express says, would
mean such co-operation as would
stagger Germany.
Miners working in the tunnel
which is to tap the No. 2 vein on
the American Boy group are finding the ground very favorable for
tunnelling, and are making such
good progress that the management of the Harris Mines, the
operating company, expects to
reach the ore early in February,
while the cost of the work is not
likely to exceed $8 a foot, not-
| withstanding the disproportionate overhead expense resulting
from the employment of a small
working force. It has been
necessary to suspend work on the
Eagle shaft at a depth of 87 feet,
pending the installation of a horse
whim, as hoisting by hand makes
the cost of sinking excessive.
During the week Mark Carr
will take to the property 20-pound
rails sufficient for 300 feet of
track, secured by the company
from a railroad contractor who
has finished his work. Robert
Heddle, of the Willis shop, who
is an experienced car builder, is
engaged in the construction of an
ore car for use in the tunnel.
Plans are being prepared for a
second tunnel, to give 300 feet of
depth on No. 2 vein, and to serve
as a permanent working tunnel.
Nos. 4, 3 and 1 will be reached
by means of crosscuts.
I loipital Sunday
There will be special sermons
and collections in aid of the
Hazelton Hospital in St. Peter's
church on Sunday, Dec. 10.
Dominion Government will Assist Province in Development.
There is good authority for the
statement that the government is
working upon a comprehensive
scheme under which the provinces
will be subsidized for the benefit
of agriculture and for good road
building, the money to be earmarked and the expenditures to
be made on definite lines to be
laid down by the Dominion
government.
In order to prepare the way for
the granting of the subsidies, and
to ascertain exactly what are the
most pressing needs of the individual provinces, one, or perhaps
two,   commissions   will   be   appointed, to  be composed of appointees of the federal govern-1
ment, to whom  representations!
of the   provincial   governments j
and the farming interests will be
made,   It has not,  apparently, j
been  finally   determined   as   to|
whether there will be separate
commissions  to  deal  with  the i
roads questions, or whether one!
commission  will deal  with   the1
two questions of roads and the!
encouragement of the more pro-1
ductive agricultural industries.
(Bpeolal i" Tin. Ulnar)
Vancouver, Dec. 2:���Attorney-
general Bowser, who is now in
Vancouver, has announced  that
the  provincial  government will
shortly appoint a royal commission  to investigate   and   adjust!
unsettled disputes  between  the |
owners of land subdivisions and!
the government,  under the act i
which gives the province a one-
quarter interest in new townsites, |
as   applied   to South   Hazelton.
Alderman   Williamson   will   represent the government so far as
the sale of lots in South Hazelton
is concerned.
Unevenness in the application
of the act has occurred since its
passage because of the different
constructions placed upon the
term "town lots."
(Special to The Miner)
Prince Rupert, Dec. 1:���Fire
on Monday afternoon destroyed
the registry offices in the government group of buildings. The
blaze originated in the basement
of the building, and was noticed
shortly after noon. It had obtained such a start that all efforts
to extinguish it were unavailing
and the structure burned to the
ground. So rapid was the spread
of the fiames that it was found
impossible to save all the official
papers. The provincial assessor's
office lost about $7,000 in cash
and cheques.
The fire department, which had
responded immediately to the
alarm, made every effort to check
the fire, and succeeded in preventing its spread to the main
building, which was for a time
in considerable danger. A strong
wind was blowing, and strenuous
work was required to prevent
what might have been a general
conflagration. The building
loss is approximately $10,000.
As a temporary arrangement,
the registry office has been
moved to the offices of the Continental Trust Co., the government offices being transferred to
the old quarters on Center street.
The Supreme Court sitting is being held in Mclntyre hall.

vice on this coast for many years, ;
and   which  has a long list   of
rescues to her credit, is herself'

days ago, while on Tier way to'
Victoria.    Her wireless apparatus
was put out of commission, and
warning of her situation was sent;
out by the nearest wireless sta-!
tion.   In response to the call a!
fleet of rescuing vessels hurried
to  the   scene   and  are  now  at j

to assist,   Particulars are meagre,
but a large passenger list is re
ported.
Jap Divorce Suit
(Special  to The Minor)
The subject drawn for debate
at the first regular meeting of
the debating club on Wednesday
evening was, "Resolved, that
Woman is the intellectual equal
of Man." Taking umbrage at
the implication that there might
be any doubt as to their equality
with the sterner sex, the militant
suffragettes of the town took
action to demonstrate their intellectual capacity. To the number
of fourteen, they invaded the
hall, wearing streamers with the
inscription "Woman's Rights"
and evinced their determination
to sit out the debate. The unfortunates who had been slated
to take the negative side of the
argument refused to proceed in
the face of the formidable fourteen. The debate was abandoned. The visitors waited until the
members of the club had dispersed, and then, having vindicated
woman's rights, departed with
disdainful satisfaction. As one
of the younger men expressed it,
they had "certainly put the everlasting kibosh on the debating
club."

No. 1-1
A Busy Mischief-Maker
Being like other towns, Hazelton is not without men of the
class which finds its chief occupation is stirring up trouble. One
of these busy gentlemen called a secret meeting the other day,
inviting the attendance of a number of business men. The local
press was not informed of the intended meeting, for reasons which
developed when the purpose of the prime mover was disclosed.
His policy, to which he sought to bind the merchants of the town,
was to coerce the newspapers, by a threat to withdraw all advertising unless the Government, the police and the "blind pigs" were
sufficiently "roasted".
The business men who attended the meeting did not adopt the
plan: but the incident affords the Miner a fitting opportunity for a
declaration of its principles: This paper is unalterably opposed to
the illegal sale of liquor and every other contravention of the law;
but it does not believe in publishing to the world the fact that
breaches of the law are taking place, unless such publicity will
serve to correct the evil. In this case, since the police are doing
everything posssible in the circumstances, the Miner has contented
itself with publishing the facts when convictions were obtained, j
It is to be expected that the merchants of Hazelton, as law-abiding,
citizens, should oppose the illegal sale of liquor, but a little reflection should show them that the conditions they complain of are not;
the result of any laxity on the part of the police, but are due to the
absurdly light penalties provided by the liquor act for the illegal
sale of liquor. The Attorney-general, in presenting the present
bill to the Legislature, fixed much severer penalties; but the members, thinking the act too drastic, removed the imprisonment
clauses. Experience has shown that the imposition of fines alone
is not sufficient to deter the blind piggers, and their operations
along the G. T. P. construction have given the police and the
Attorney-general's department endless trouble. It is probable that
more adequate penalties will be provided during the coming session.
In the meantime we believe that the police of this district are doing
their utmost to stamp out the traffic, and would suggest to citizens
that they give assistance where possible, instead of indulging in
ill-considered "roasting," which will do no good and will only serve
to increase the difficulties under which the police have to work.
We would further suggest that when meetings affecting the
interests of the community are to be held, the press should be
notified. Newspapers can do much to benefit the communities in
which they are published, and those who control them are entitled
to be consulted regarding matters of public interest with which
they are expected to deal. No newspaper worthy of the name
will consent to be bullied into the adoption of any editorial policy,
and if the man or men whose efforts in that direction have just
failed will bear that fact in mind, it may save misunderstanding in
the future.
Profits in Silver-Lead Mining
Figures from the annual report of the Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Co. will prove interesting to the mining operators in this I
district and to those who are investing in our silver-lead properties.
One of the mines operated by the company in question is the St.
Eugene, at Moyie. This property for the last fiscal year produced
47,705 tons of ore which, after milling, yielded 7,708 tons of concentrates. The value of these concentrates were: Silver, 204,044
ounces, lead, 9,012,142 pounds, a total value of $429,044. The
mining, smelting, general and development expenses in connection
with this property totalled $250,061.13.
These figures show a profit for the year of $172,98.'} on the
operations of the St. Eugene alone. An analysis of the report
shows that the ore carried 189 pounds of lead, or, roughly, 9 1-2 per
per cent, and very slightly over 4 ounces of silver to the ton, less
than half an ounce of silver to each unit of percentage in the lead.
The raw ore was only worth about $6.75 a ton at the smelter and
practically $3.50 a ton was clear profit.
Hazelton ores are about six times as rich in silver as this report
shows the St. Eugene ore to be. Nine and a half per cent lead
ore here carries from 25 to 30 ounces of silver, making an ore worth
about $20 per ton. Mining costs may never be as low, but Hazelton ores with the same lead percentage as the St. Eugene are likely
to be highly profitable for concentration.
The report of the Sullivan mine, also operated by the Consolidated, affords a further illustration of the large profits which may
be realized in silver-lead mining. This mine sent to the smelter
30,065 tons of ore, containing about 20 1-2 per cent, lead and 7 1-2
ounces of silver to the ton, or an approximate value of $18.50 a ton.
Exclusive of development costs, the charges against the ore were
slightly under $2.30 a ton. Ores in the Hazelton camps, carrying
the same percentage of lead, give silver values approximating 60
ounces to the ton. The greater values obtained in our ores will
more than offset the higher cost of mining, freight and treatment.
Sale of South Hazelton Lots
A great deal of importance will naturally be attached to the
announcement made this week that the Provincial Government has
joined the Grand Trunk Pacific in the sale by auction of lots in the
South Hazelton townsite. Following the participation of the
Government in the sale, we may look for the expenditure of large
sums in improving the proposed site of the permanent town, and
the early construction of a bridge to connect the present town with
the city that is to be. The work of clearing the townsite will
begin within a few days, according to the G. T. P. program.
An Infant's Pathetic Appeal
A somewhat pathetic figure is
that of the five-year-old Emperor
of China, who has issued a proclamation to his subjects, appealing for their support in the crisis
occasioned by the revolution.
His advisers have published his
sentiments in these words:
"1 have reigned three years
and have always acted conscientiously in the interests of the
people. But 1 have not employed
men properly, as I am without
political skill. I have employed
too many nobles in political positions, which contravenes constitutionalism.
"On railway matters one whom
I trusted deceived me. Hence
public opinion was antagonized.
When 1 urge reform, officials and
the gentry seize the opportunity
to embezzle. Much of the people's
money has been taken, but nothing to benefit the people has
been achieved.
"On several occasions edicts
promulgated laws, but none of
them has been obeyed. .The
people are grumbling, yet I do not
know. Disasters loom ahead, but
1 do not see. . . .
"The whole empire is seething.
The spirits of our nine deceased
emperors are unable to enjoy the
sacrifices properly while it is
feared that the people will suffer
grievously.
"All these things are my own
fault, and I hereby announce to
the world that I swear to reform
and with our soldiers and people
to carry out the constitution faithfully, modifying legislation, promoting the interests of the people,
and abolishing their hardships,
ail in accordance with their wishes
and interests. The old laws that
are unsuitable will be abolished.
The union of the Manchus and
Chinese, mentioned by the late
emperor, I shall carry out now.
Finances and diplomacy have
reached bedrock.
"Even if all unite, I still fear
that we may fall. If the empire's
subjects do not regard and honor
fate, and are easily misled by
outlaws, then the future of China
is unthinkable. I am most anxious day and night. My only hope
is that my subjects will thoroughly understand."

The most important discovery
made in British Columbia for
many years, according to a Nelson despatch, is that of a new
metal announced by A. G. French,
the eminent English chemist who
early in the present year discovered the existence of platinum
in the Kootenays.
The new metal belongs to the
platinum group and its existence
was never before known. It is a
white metal, valuable in jewelry
for the setting of gems, the reflecting surface of mirrors, for
search lights, instruments, etc.
The metal occurs pure in semi-
crystalline grains in short rods
half a millimetre long and a tenth
of a millimetre wide. When burnished it is more lustrous than
silver or any other of the white
metals. It exists in large quantities.

Adams suggests Kodaks for
Christmas presents.
W. H. Parker, who has been
confined to the hospital for some
time, is again on his feet, and is
rapidly regaining his usual health.
While playing hockey early in
the week, J. S. Cline sustained a
cut over the left eye which will
keep it in obscurity for some
days.
There is fair sleighing above
Twenty-mile, but the lower end
of the road is almost bare, and
freighters are anxiously looking
for snow.
W. .). Driver, one of the most
successful of the Bulkley valley
ranchers, went clown the river on
Wednesday, en route to Seattle,
where he will spend the winter.
News has been received that R.
DeB. Hovell, of Hazelton, has
been elected a vice-president of
the Vancouver branch of the
Navy League, in recognition of
his services to the cause.
H. Silverthorne was in  town
. during the week.   At the Pleasant Valley postoffice which bears
his name he reports quite a number of improvements, including a
. new store and stopping place.
Telkwa's new skating rink,
which is to have dimensions of
80 x 200 feet is nearing completion, and the hockey team which
will represent the Valley in this
winter's games is getting ready
for business.
At Skeena crossing the contractors have completed the upper
works on the first caisson, and
are now engaged in installing the
four hoisting engines which will
be used for handling material.
The actual work of sinking will
begin next week. The second
caisson is well under way.
A new stoppipg place, which
will be appreciated by those who
travel between Hazelton and
Bulkley valley points, has been
opened at the halfway point by
Hamann & Kilpatriek. The proprietors are men of experience
and ability, and may be relied
upon to furnish the best possible
accommodation.
Fears were entertained that
Gus Rosenthal, who went to Vancouver for the treatment of his
injured eye, would have to undergo an operation. At the office of
Rosenthal, Harris & DeVoin news
has just been received, however,
, that an operation will be unnecessary, and the sight of the
injured optic is not likely to be
j affected.
Development work on the Sil-
t ver Cup will be concentrated on
the Duke tunnel during the
winter. The tunnel is now in
50 feet, and good progress is
being made by the miners under
: Foreman Gus Sanborn. J. Fall,
superintendent of the property,
intends to leave in a few days for
I Victoria, where he will  spend  a
I few weeks.
The lake on which the Athletic
association has constructed its
rink is the property of the Hospital. For the satisfaction of
enquirers, Dr. Wrinch, medical
superintendent of the Hospital,
announces that the free use of
space for rink and pavilion has
been granted to the association,
and that the public is welcome to
the use of the lake for skating.
One or two horses in the dis-
1 trict showing symptoms which
led to the suspicion that the animals might be infected with
glanders caused the authorities
to send Dr. Mackenzie, a Dominion veterinary inspector, to Hazelton. After makingthe necessary
tests and deciding that the horses
had no contagious disease, the
inspector returned to the coast
yesterday.
H. H. McVittie and his survey
party have returned from their
season's work in the district
around Tatla' and Trembleur
lakes. The nine men had a
rather strenuous trip, being
obliged to abandon their canoes
at old Fort Babine and take the
thin ice for footing to the Babine
, post, where they struck the Man-
son trail. They report a considerable area of good land between
Trembleur and Babine lakes.
After a three months' visit to
outside points, C. F. Willis returned to Hazelton on Wednesday. In the Crow's Nest country,
where he spent part of his time
renewing old acquaintances, he
says many enquiries are being
made as to the possibilities of
this district, and he was able to
do some effective missionary
work. The coal strike is settled,
and the miners have returned to
work, Mr. Willis says, but it will
take many months to make good
the losses to men and employers.
A Big Potlatch
This has been a busy week on
the Indian reserve. On Monday
there began the preliminary
ceremonies attendant upon the
choice of a Spa-ouk, or chief of
the Wolf clan. The Wolf crest
being second in importance only
to that of the Frog, the event
necessitated the attendance of
over three hundred Indians from
other branches of the tribe located at various points along the
Skeena. The visitors were entertained at the prescribed "welcome-feast" on Thursday evening, when it was made known
that Nag-Wa-On, who is known
to the Whites as Johnny Patsey,
had been recognized as chief of
the clan by the kingmakers of
the tribe, he being the nearest
of kin to the last chief, Fanny
De-Las, who died a year ago.
The ceremonies marking the accession of a chief occupied the
attention of the tribe all day
yesterday, the feature being a
potlatch in which some $4000 in
goods and several thousands in
cash were distributed by the Spa-
ouk and his relatives, among
whom were the unsuccessful candidates for the chiefship, Edward
Clark and Robert Wilson. Another incident was a competitive
dance, occurring in the afternoon,
in which practically every klooch-
man in the tribe participated.
Fort George Reserve Sold
Winnipeg, Nov. 29:���Government land agent Randall, Fort
George, who arrived here today,
confirmed report of sale to the
Dominion government of Fort
George Indian reserve for one
hundred and twenty five thousand
dollars, One fifth purchase price
has been paid to Chief Joe Qua-
wand and his two hundred Indians.

Limestone On Skeena
(Special tn The Minor)
Vancouver, Nov. 30:--Chesley,
the discoverer of limestone beds
on the Skeena river, seventy
miles from Prince Rupert, has
returned with Alexander Faulds,
a mining engineer who went up
to examine the lime. Their report indicates that the deposits
are larger than at first supposed.
They say there is a stratum
five miles long which will, without doubt, serve for the manufacture of the highest grade
cement. The deposit has a width
of from 300 to 500 feet. Mr.
Faulds says the deposits contain
millions of tons of the best
cement.
