ARE GOING IN
Many Companies Preparing
For a Busy Season in Rich
Placer Mining District
OTTERSON HERE TODAY
New Hydraulic Plants and Dredges Will
Be Installed by Various Companies
Operating on Omineca River and
Tributary Streams   - Miners   Arrive
Fulfillment of The Miner's prediction that the coming season
would see a great revival of activity in the rich and historic
placer district of the Omineca
river is already in sight. On today's stage arrived George W.
Otterson, a mining man of note,
who is well known as a successful operator of hydraulic propositions. The Huderle-Otterson
company, in which Mr. Otterson
is associated with other mining
men, owns leases covering all
the unworked portion of Manson
creek. On this ground, which
prospects as high as seven dollars
to the yard, an hydraulic elevator
plant was installed last season,
and everything is in readiness
for actual mining as soon as the
season opens. For the first ninety
days' work the elevator alone
will be used. After that time
the workings will be opened up
sufficiently for the installation
of an open lift which will handle
500 yards every twenty-four
hours. The company has one of
the best water powers in the
country, has plenty of supplies
for the season, and the management is looking forward with
confidence to a highly successful
year.
Mr. Otterson, with Harry
Walker, who arrived with him,
will leave for Manson creek in
the course of a few days.
Among the other mining men
who came in today are Captain
J. Docker, one of the directors,
and P. H. Morris, the superintendent of the Lost Creek Hydraulic Mining Co., which has
acquired the Steele properties.
They have secured a big hydraulic plant, which will be taken in
to the Omineca as soon as possible. The company's plans provide for an extensive program of
development during the season.
C. F. Lowe, who is in charge
of the Boulder creek properties,
which are to be worked this season, also came up the river today,
A number of other concerns
operating in the Omineca river
camp are now making preparations for a big season's work. G.
H. Knowlton will soon return, to
instal a dredge which he recently
secured and which will be taken
in as soon as the promised wagon
road from Tada lake allows of
the transportation of heavy
machinery to the ground. The
ground owned by Mr. Knowlton
and his associates is of large extent. H. E. Bodine, who has
spent the last two seasons in testing the ground with drills, reports that dredging will prove
highly profitable.
The Royal Standard Investment Co., of Vancouver, is preparing to instal a big hydraulic
plant on its ground at the lower
end of Germansen creek during
the summer.
Mr. Otterson, who is thoroughly familiar with the great resources of the Omineca river and
its tributaries, and never loses
an opportunity to do missionary
work among those who are looking for profitable mining fields,
states that there will be a large
influx of mining men from California, Idaho, Montana and Nevada during the coming season,
and he is confident that mining
in the placer district and other
parts of Omineca will receive
great impetus. He spent part of
the winter in Napa, California,
which he believes to be the original spot where Eve handed
Adam the apple which was primarily responsible for the economic
conditions under which mankind
nndB it necessary to rustle for
gold.
"Good Roads" Taylor
Revelstoke: Hon. Thomas
Taylor was unanimously nominated by the Conservatives. McBride and Bowser were given a
great reception at a big meeling
here. They are now in Okanagan.
DISCOVERY OF SOUTH POLE
Good Prices Realized
for Bulkley Lands
A. C. Aldous announces the
completion of a deal by which
two parcels of valuable land in
the upper Bulkley change hands
at satisfactory prices. Dr. H. C.
Wrinch has disposed of .'120 acres,
situated 31 miles above Aider-
mere and surveyed as lot 203, to
eastern people, for a cash consideration of $25 an acre. Part of
lot 1168, comprising 1G7 acres,
has been sold to the same investors and at the same price pet-
acre, by C. V. Smith.
Contradictory Reports Concerning the Results
Achieved by British and Norwegian Antarctic Expeditions���Amundsen Arrives in
Civilization First, but Scott May Have Won
At Bridge Next Week
The end of steel has reached
a point two miles east of Shan-
dilla and seven miles below the
bridge. The rails are expected
to reach the latter point on Tues-
day or Wednesday of next week.
BEGINNING OF WORK
ON SURPRISE GROUP
Company Which Has Acquired Property Will Immediately  Start  Work
Another of the promising prospects of the camp is to be developed, this time the Surprise
group, preliminary work on
which will begin almost at once.
! R. W. Thompson has received
! instructions from J. F. Cameron,
who last season acquired the
property, to proceed at once with
the construction of a camp to
accommodate the crew which
will be put to work as soon as
the surface is free of snow.
The Surprise group, which is
located on Glen mountain, adjoining the Silver Standard, has
a good surface showing of silver-
lead ore. The property has been
taken over by the Steamboat
Mountain Gold Mines, Ltd., of
Vancouver. This company, formed to operate a group in the district from which it lakes its
name, had as its fiscal agent C.
D. Rand, a well known operator.
When Mr. Rand discovered that
the company's property was of
no practical value, he cast about
for a group which would recoup
the shareholders' losses, ancl
finally succeeded in obtaining the
Surprise. Messrs. Cameron and
Rand are determined to make
good, and as surface indications
on the group are those of amine,
it should not be long before the
Surprise ranks as one of the show
properties of the camp. Mr.
Cameron is expected here early
in April.
Kettle Valley Line
Victoria, Mar. G: It has been
officially announced that the contract for the construction of the
Kettle Valley line over the Hope
Mountains will be awarded early
next month, and that construction work will be started not
later than May 1.
Wellington, N. Z.,   March 7i-
j The British Antarctic expedition,
, under Captain Scott, has reached
I the south polo, acoording to Captain Amundsen,   the  Norwegian
explorer who headed a competing
expedition.    Amundsen   reached
here today in his  ship Fram, in
which he also sought the pole
| under commission from the government of Norway, sailing from
' Buenos Aires at the    close  of
; 1910.   Scott  sailed   by  way of
I New Zealand and   Ross Sea in
the Terra Nova,   the largest ancl
I stoutest  of   Scottish    whalers,
| which had previously won fame
'������ in the icy seas.   The ship sailed
I on its present voyage from London in June, 1910, with the best
j equipment of any polar expedi-
. tion in history, and a courageous
j and experienced staff of explorers.
Was Amundsen First?
j London, March 9:���A despatch
I received here, via Christiana,
says Captain Amundsen discov-
' ered the south pole on December
j 14th, remaining until December
! 17th, to take observations.
Shackleton, commenting on the
! conflicting    reports,   raises  the
; question,     "Did   Captain   Scott
1 reach the pole prior to December
14th?',   Even if he did, says the
famous explorer, the same meed
!of  praise  should   be   awarded
Amundsen as Norwegians would
grant Scott were the conditions
reversed.
Refuses to Talk
Hobart, Tasmania, March 9: ���
Amundsen has landed from his
ship, the Fram. No one is allowed
aboard the vessel. The explorer
says he is pleased with the result
of the expedition, but otherwise
maintains absolute silence on the
subject. He will stay here for
a few days and will then go to
Australia, where he will give a
few lectures. From Australia he
will go to Europe. It is stated
here that Amundsen denies having telegraphed anything regarding Scott.
In response to cabled instructions to ask Amundsen point
blank whether Scott reached the
pole, the correspondent of the
London Star here cabled from
Hobart today as follows:
' 'Amundsen refuses to say anything on the question as to
whether Scott reached the pole
or not."
Scientists here are prepared to
await further details before be-
l;eving the British expedition defeated in the race for the pole.
Denies Knowledge of Scott
'New York, Mar. 9:���The Times
here says it has received a despatch from Amundsen saying he
knew nothing about Scott. The
cable was in reply to a message
asking the question.
Who Received Despatch?
London, Mar. 9:���The message
from Christiana does not say that
Norway received word from
Amundsen, or to whom the despatch was sent.
MANSON UNANIMOUSLY CHOSEN
Prince Rupert, March 9: -(Special) William Manson, member of the provincial parliament for Skeena electoral district, was today chosen unanimously as the candidate of the
Conservative party for the approaching election. There
was only one dissentient, Dr. Clayton, who failed to find
anyone to place his name before the convention. Practically every part of the district was represented by delegates,
men being present from Bella Coola, Queen Charlottes,
Stewart, Francois Lake, Hazelton and all Bulkley Valley
and Skeena points.
Manson's election is conceded by all, even the Liberals.
It is believed Clayton will run in spite of the convention's
verdict.
The Socialists have named Alderman Montgomery as their
candidate. The Liberals have not yet decided on a man.
It is the general opinion that no combination can affect
Manson's return.
Provincial Election Campaign
Opened by Premier and Bowser
Numbers of men are reported
I to be on their way up the river
I to take the places of the striking
; railroaders.
Although     the     construction
I trains arc running  to  a   point
within a few miles of the bridge,
!the carriage of ties,  rails ancl
supplies prevents the giving of
j anything like passenger service,
I and travel between  Van Arsdol
ancl the end of steel is not eom-
i fortable.   Many are turning back
from the former point to Prince
Rupert, to wait for better conditions.
Kamloops, March 7:��� McBride
and Bowser last night opened
the campaign with a meeting
which was an augury of signal
victory throughout the whole in-
! terior o\' the province. In attendance and enthusiasm the meeting
was the greatest in the history
of Kamloops, spelling easy reelection for Shaw by a majority
largely in excess of the four hundred he obtained three years ago.
The premier and attorney-general left Victoria on Tuesday. At
Vancouver on Wednesday morning Mr. McBride declared he had
never entered upon a campaign
in which he felt the people were
so solidly with him. He had even
received offers of support from
prominent Liberals, who, the
premier said, "Realize that the
government's policy is a progressive one, designed to benefit the
people of the whole province."
He also expressed pleasure that
the Liberals in their recent Vancouver convention, had endorsed
almost every plank in the Conservative platform. He had received scores of telegrams from
all parts of the province commending the course of the government.
Upon reaching Kamloops the
ministers were given a great reception at the station and were
escorted in procession to the place
of meeting, passing on the way
lhe Liberal headquarters, which
was closed and dark, members
of the opposition party being also
on their way to the meeting.
The premier, in his speech, dealt
chiefly with the railway policy,
while Bowser tore up the Liberal
"platform", which he characterized as a joke.   About the only
Tracklaying On East
End of Railway Gap
Fort George, Mar. 4: ��� The
Grand Trunk Pacific rails are
within eighteen miles of Tete
Jaune Cache. Vast quantities of
supplies are being received, and
many men and teams are engaged
in preparations for the greatest
rush of railroad building Canada
has ever seen, in the effort to
complete the 180 miles of road
which will link Port George with
the main line from the east. II
is also the intention to complete
150 miles west of this point before next winter's snow falls.
SAWMILL DESTROYED
EARLY THIS MORNING
Building of Interior Lumber
Company Burned --- Will
Resume Operations Shortly
At an early hour this morning
the mill of the Interior Lumber
Company, on Two-mile creek,
caught fire, presumably from
sparks blown from the burning
slab pile. When discovered by
the forman the blaze was already beyond control, ancl the
structure was destroyed. Fortunately for the company, the
light lumber of the open building
did not make a fire hot enough
to senously injure the plant.
The boiler is practically uninjured
and the engine can be easily repaired, wdiile the belts and saw-
can be replaced without delay.
The mill has a large amount of
tunnel timber contracted for, but
as a two-weeks' supply is now-
piled for delivery and the mill
will be again in operation within
ten days, there is not likely to be
any loss beyond that of the building.
things not included for the people,
if the Liberals returned to power,
he said, were motor cars and
flying machines. It had been
drawn up by wise men, each with
a fad, and each fad had been
inserted in the platform. The
state accident insurance proposal,
the speaker pointed out, had
been advocated by Duncan Ross,
who had blossomed out into a
great railroad contractor and
now wanted the province to pay
if his workmen got hurt, instead
of paying himself. The Liberal
convention had been told by Ross
that on his payroll of ten thousand dollars a month he had to
pay insurance companies seven
per cent, under present conditions. Ross had disclosed that
he never went to bed at night
without praying that nobody
would get hurt. "Imagine Duncan Ross praying each night be-
bore going to bed!" said Mr.
Bowser.
A. D. Mclntyre, a Kamloops
lawyer, will probably be the Liberal candidate here.
Gill Meets Defeat
After a strenuous contest, Hi
Gill, the recalled mayor of Seattle, was defeated by George
Cotterill, who had a majority of
79G. The total registration was
74,000. Mr. Otterson, who was
in Seattle during part of the campaign, says some of the tactics
of those opposed to Gill were unworthy of a "Reform" party.
UNEMPLOYED
British Coal Strike Spreads,
Affecting Workers Engaged in Many Other Industries
RAILWAYS DISARRANGED
Efforts of Government to Effect Settlement Unavailing��� Strike in England
Purely a Sympathetic Movement ���
Men  Demand  Scale Unconditionally
London, March 4:���The coal
strike is now affecting every
class in the community. Tens
of thousands of workers have
been dismissed, and the railway
service is dislocated and disorganized. Like creeping paralysis
the stoppage of the cool supply is
threatening the whole life of the
nation. The miners are making
holiday. They are, as they put
it, "Having their fling," while
the nation suffers. The poor go
cold and hungry, and their fellow
workers are turned into the
streets.
London, Mar. 7:���The government is still engaged in an effort
to arrange an amicable settlement
'of the coal miners' strike.    A
I movement to inaugurate a gen-
jeral strike of railway employes
ihas    greatly    increased public
j alarm.   The statement is made
that an invasion of Great Britain
I by  a foreign   foe could do no
: greater  damage  than is  being
I done by the strike,   which  has
J now lasted over a week.
j    Suffering is felt everywhere,
land in many lines  of industry.
j The number of miners on strike
lis  over   a   million.     Of  other
workers nearly half a million are
put of work as a result of the
trouble.
London, Mar. 9:- The deadlock
in the great coal strike continues.
The men refuse to abandon their
demands for unconditional acceptance of their mininum wage
schedule. In despair of a settlement, some journals are appealing to the King to act as mediator.
The schedule of distinct de- >
mands, as approved by the Miner's Federation varies greatly,
according to the general wages
��� in each district, the cost of living,
etc. It ranges from a minimum
lof four shillings and eleven pence
'per clay in Somerset, to seven
shillings and sixpence in South
Wales, Devonshire, Yorkshire
and Nottinghamshire. It is impossible to make any general
compromises with the existing
rates, but that the rate of wages
is not (lie real cause of the upheaval is suggested by the fact
that no man in the pits which
first struck earns as low as seven
shillings ancl sixpence daily. All
may make from ten to twelve
shillings ancl more l'or their eight
hours' work.
The strike in England has no
economic basis, but is purely a
sympathetic movement. The
] South Wales miners feel ugly
towards the owners, and some of
their Socialist leaders tell them if
they strike they can own the
collieries themselves. The English miners mean to show their
sympathy by taking a holiday
themselves on strike pay, of
which the Federation is said to
have a fund of over ten million
dollars.
The Miners' Federation passed
a resolution to permit all the men
whose services are necessary to
keep the coal pits in good work-

The Prospector and His Work
Some weeks must pass before the melting of the snows allows
the prospectors of this district lo resume their search for the
precious minerals; yet most of the oldtimers who went out for the
winter have already returned, with many who are making their
first essay in Omineca. It may be safely predicted that the year
1912 will be a notable one in the mineral history of British Columbia, and that the discovery of new deposits in this district and the
development of present prospects will attract the attention of
mining men throughout thc continent. The ore specimens from
our camps, which have been on display in Vancouver and other
cities, have served to p;ive miners and prospectors some idea of
the richness of our veins, and are responsible, in great measure,
for the influx of prospectors which has already begun.
We welcome the prospector even as we welcome the capitalist.
The former must do his work before the investor can find what he
seeks, and while we have many showings worthy of the attention
of mining operators, there is still a large area of mineral country
to be prospected before we can begin to estimate the mineral resources of the district.
To the prospector, be he sourdough or chechaco, we extend
our distinguished consideration.    May good fortune attend him.
Some Telkwa Coal
E. L. Kinman has secured ten
coal leases on the Telkwa, on
which a high quality of bituminous coal has been foui d, The
discovery was exa ined by J.
McEvoy, whose principals recently made an offer for the
property. Two seams of coal,
each six feet in thickness, outcrop, while there are also several
smaller seams varying in width
from 20 inches to 3 feet. The
coal appears to be clean, with the
exception of 3-4 inch of rock
matter in the upper seam ancl
and six inches in the lower seam.
The outcrop is at an elevation of
1,000 feet above the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway, and a mile ancl a
half distant therefrom, and from
its apparent pitch it can be most
economically developed by a low
level tunnel, and the coal conveniently delivered by a tramway to the railway tracks. An
analysis of samples brought in
showed 76 per cent, fixed carbon;
13 per cent, volatile matter, ancl
6 per cent. ash. -B. C. Mining
and Engineering Record.
appearance, but of much higher
specific gravity.
The most convenient qualitative
test for tungsten is to crush a
small sample of the ore, and heat
it in hyd ochloric acid when a
bright yellow precipitate is deposited. This precipitate is
tungsten trioxide. As a confirmatory test add a little metallic
tin or zinc, when blue and brown
tints will appear below the yellow. ���Record.
Tungsten Beteimination
The tungsten ores of British
Columbia promise to be of economic value. These ores are mainly
associated with gold ancl silver
deposits. Scheelite is found in
the placers of Cariboo, in the
Klondike, Y. T; tit the Black
Hills, Nome, and in the Koyukuk
River, Alaska.
Probably the best samples of
tungsten ores occur in the Nelson
and Cariboo districts. At the
Nugget and Kootenay Belle mines
on Sheep Creek considerable
tungstite has been found. The
Cariboo ore is scheelite, occurring
at Hardscrabble. Wolframite is
a tungstate of manganese; and
scheelite is a tungstate of calcium.
As it is important that prospectors should be in a position to
recognize the ores of tungsten
some notes on their reactions
should be of value to the men in
the field. The most noticeable
feature of tungsten ores in their
great weight or specific gravity.
Wolframite and hubernite arc
heavy black minerals, with a
bright metallic lustre. Scheelite
is a heavy, light, colored mineral,
resembling orthoclase feldspar in
Panama Canal Tolls
The question as to the terms
upon which foreign vessels are
to be allowed the use of the
Panama canal has not yet been
settled by congress. One proposal is that American shipping
shall have preferential tolls, although such a policy would be
inconsistent with the Hay-
Pauncefote canal trealy. On the
other hand, the New York World
speaks for a large section of the
American people when it says:
"Canada has expended more
than $100,(100,0110 to provide ship
canals from the Atlantic ocean
i to the Great Lakes. It is a larger
expenditure relative to the population and resources than the
United States will make at Panama. Thc cost of maintenance
and improvements are relatively
larger.
"Nevertheless, American vessels are allowed to go toll-free
through these costly Canadian
waterways. The American tonnage through the Welland canal
is larger than the Canadian. The
tonnage of both countries through
the Ami rican a 11 d Canadian
canals at the Soo is larger than
that of the Suez and larger than
that will be al Panama. But
Canada rejects the policy of cost-
tolls or profit-lolls where they
could be so easily collected. It
adopts the policy of making its
artificial waterways as free as
the high seas. The United States
does the same with its canal at
the Soo.
"Can the United States afford
to adopt a Panama canal policy
less generous to Canada or the
nations than this Canadian canal
policy is to the United States?
Protests are being made in the
Dominion Parliament against
preferential tolls for the American ships in the Panama canal.
Canada has a right to protest. It
has an equal right to ask for a
canal without tolls, and this
country will perform a world of
service of greater profit to itself
than can be computed in money
by adopting the policy of a free
canal."
India's Message
The  Prime  Minister of Great!
Britain has received the following message from the Viceroy of:
India:
The ruling Princes and Chiefs
of India on the one hand, and
the non-official members of my
Legislative Council acting on behalf of the people of British
India on the other, desire that I
should forward to the Prime
Minister the following message
from the Princes and people of
India to the people of Great
Britain and Ireland. Telegrams!
from the ruling Princes and
Chiefs signifying this desire have
been received, and the non-official j
members of my Council have
acted on the authority^ of public
meetings, held at important cen-1
tres in the different provinces, j
at which resolutions expressing
the sentiments embodied in the
message have been adopted.
"The Princes and people of
India desire to take the opportunity afforded by the conclusion
of the Royal visit to convey to
the great English nation an expression of their cordial good
will and fellowship, also an assurance of their warm attachment to the world-wide Empire
of which they form part and
with which their destinies are
now indissolubly linked. Their
Imperial Majesties' visit to India,
so happily conceived and so successfully completed, has produced
a profound and ineffaceable impression throughout the country.
Their Imperial Majesties, by
their gracious demeanour, their
unfailing sympathy, and their
deep solicitude for the welfare
of all classes, have drawn closer
the bonds that unite England
and India, and have deepened
and intensified the traditional
feeling of loyalty and devotion
to the Throne and person of the
Sovereign, which has always
characterized the Indian people.
"Conscious of the many blessings which India has derived
from her connection with England, the Princes and people rejoiced to tender in person their
loyal and loving homage to their
Imperial Majesties. They are
confident that this great and
historic event marks the beginning of a new era, ensuring
greater happiness, prosperity and
progress under the aegis of the
Crown."
The message represents the
culminating stage of a remarkable movement. On the eve of
the Royal departure from India
there was a general desire that
the emotions and sentiments
aroused by the visit should be
crystallized in a short message
from India to the British people.
This is the first occasion on which
India has addressed the British
nation.     London Times.

Some interesting information
on the Canadian grain situation
comes from Duluth. On Saturday, the Canadian Northern had
orders for loading 8700 cars of
grain on its system and but 133
cars that could be applied at the
time. On the same day, there
were 4900 cars of grain billed
for Duluth and coming forth at
the rate of 150 cars a day.
western trip of the Duke of Connaught will begin early in September, or immediately after the
Duke opens the Toronto exhibition. The first stop will be made
at Winnipeg, and the royal party
will then proceed to Prince Rupert, with stops at Vancouver and
Victoria. Either going or coming,
stops will be made at Calgary,
Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina,
and other important points.
Considerable interest has been
aroused in Prince Rupert by the
announcement that Dan C.
Whiteford has discovered a salt
well on his pre-emption claim at
46-mile on the Grand Trunk Pacific, close to the railway and
near the river. One gallon of
water gives a half pound of clear
white salt of fine quality. There
appears to be a vast amount of
this salt-bearing water and the
samples of salt taken to Prince
Rupert are said by experts to be
of prime quality.
The steel trust investigation
committee has presented a report
to congress. Some of the figures
dealt with are startling. It is
shown that J. P. Morgan & Co.,
received approximately $70,000,-
000 in cash profits for organizing J
the big steel combine, and that
the net profits of the concern for
the first nine years of its exist-
ence were more than a billion j
dollars. j
Confirmation   of the   reports j

representations to the belligerents,  with the view of bringing I
about peace.
General Superintendent Mehan
told the Prince Rupert News that
the first divisional point out from
Rupert is to be at Mile 119, a
station not yet named, but the
third one out from Van Arsdol
toward Hazelton. Regarding the
forthcoming work within Prince
Rupert Mr. Mehan remarked that
he is only waiting now for the
removal of the buildings in the
way before commencing to move
the G. T. P. Inn and start grading the depot site.
Was Bridge Blown Up?
Montreal, Mar. 4:���That the
Quebec bridge disaster of August 17, 1907, which killed 74 men
and caused a loss of millions of
dollars, was due to an explosion
of dynamite placed there by
agents of dissatisfied bridge
workers is the theory on which
detectives are now basing an exhaustive investigation here.
The bridge, which was to be
the longest cantilever span in the
world, was being erected by the
Phoenix Bridge Company of
Philadelphia on whose work in
different parts of the United
States some of the worst McNamara atrocities were committed.
About August 1, 1907, there
was a strike of bridge workers
and work was practically at a
standstill for a time. Only a
part of the regular force was at
work on August 17, when the
bridge fell, killing forty Italians,
nineteen Canadians and fifteen
Americans.
An Ottawa despatch says the

This Year's Immigration
Canada will receive an emigration far outnumbering that of
any previous year. Indeed it is
not unlikely that the situation
Australia faced last year when
there were not enough ships to
to. cairy emigrants to the Southern Continent will be paralleled
in the case of Canadian sailings.
There are not, it is said, enough
available boats afloat for Canadian passenger traffic.

WORLD WILL DIVIDE

Startling Prediction Made by
Maxim���United States of
Asia, Africa and  America
o~-��
 I
Boston, Mar. 6:���Sir Hiram
Maxim, the inventor, declares
that in a very short time there
will be only three countries in the
world.
"Sometime ago in talking with
Lord Wolsley ho told me that at
some future time there would be
only two countries in the world,
and those would be China and
the. United States," said Mr.
Maxim in an interview published
here today.
"Now, I want to say something
stronger than that. Ln a very
short time there will be only
three countries in the world, and
they will be the United States of
Asia (including Europe), the
United States of Africa, and the
United States of America.
"Look at the world's progress
in the last fifty years. See what
Japan has done in fifty years.
Then imagine what is the future
of the new Chinese republic with
its 400,000,000 people."
Fort George Station
Ottawa, Mar. 6:���The board of
railway commissioners decided
that the Grand Trunk Pacific
station at Fort George should be
located on the Indian reserve.
While no definite location was
fixed, the commission ruled
that the station shall not be on
on the Fraser, nor within 3500
feet of that river. According to
this decision, the location will
probably be near the Nechaco
river. The principal witness for
the petitioners was George Hammond, president of the Natural
Resources Security Co. In an
interview, after the hearing, Mr.
Hammond said he was well
pleased with the result of the
application.

New Hazelton
Montreal, Mar. 4:��� All railways including those of Canada,
are awaiting March 31, the date
of the threatened coal strike in
the United States, with apprehensive interest. A large part of
the coal used by the transportation companies of the Dominion
is imported from the United
States and the consumption of
these railways, and industries is
well abreast of the output of the
mines at the present time.
If all the mine workers lay
down their picks at the end of
the month, as there is some likelihood, the source of railway
motor power will be withdrawn
and what adds to the seriousness
of the situation, the reserve
supply amounts to but little or
nothing. An unparalleled disaster in other directions, this industrial upheaval will assuredly
cripple, even if it does not temporarily suspend, a great deal of
transportation activity in this
country.
Strenuous efforts are now being made to bring the men and
their employers together, but the
balance still hangs equal between
peace and war.
Another Stable Fire
At 1:30 this morning fire was
discovered in the stable of the
Hazelton hotel. Louis Mero, who
had a team in the stable, rushed
in and found the litter on the
fioor burning. He was unable
to extinguish the blaze, and it
was not until the fire apparatus
arrived that the trouble was
ended. Fire Chief Glassey and
George Larocque with the aid of
Norman and Bryan managed to
get all the horses out of the stable
without injury. The chemical
engines again proved their value,
making short work of the fire on
their arrival.
This was the third stable fire
to occur within a radius of half
a block this winter. Its cause is
a mystery.
Fatal Mine Explosion
Merritt, B. C, Mar. 8:���Seven
are dead and two lying seriously
injured as the result of an explosion in the mine of the Diamond Vale Coal company, near
here, The dead are: John Hogg,
Wm. Hurd, H. Grimes, John
Pattie, John Templeton, Wm.
Baxter, John Kelly. Theinjured
men are Harry Hogg and H. Col-
ish. Eleven others were in the
mine when the explosion occurred, but were in another level,
and their safety is assured.
Some had miraculuous escapes
frem death or injury. The explosion was heard for miles. The
disaster is the worst in the history of mining in the Nicola
Valley. The cause is unknown,
but a strict investigation has
been inaugurated.

From 1896 to 1910, according
to Bradstreet's, prices in this
country went up 61 per cent. The
increase was unevenly distributed. Farm products increased 100
per cent and factory products 25
| to 50 per cent; industries under
trust control had a smaller increase than those not under trust
control; tariff protection articles,
on the whole, went up less than
those on the free list, or of which
this country exports a surplus.
In England, between 1896 and
1908, according to the Sauerback
figures, animal food increased in
price from 73 to 89 per cent,
j vegetable food from 53 to 70 per
'cent, while textiles increased
from 54 to 62 per cent. English
prices are not affected by tariffs,
and in England trusts do not
greatly bother. Yet on the whole
prices there are up more relatively than here.
In France, Germany, Italy,
Austria, Belgium, Switzerland,
Holland���in fact, in every country furnishing price statistics-
prices are also up. The form of
the government, the kind of a
tariff, and the prevalence of
labor unions or industrial combination���no one of these things
has apparently had much influence. A jackscrew has been under prices everywhere. The pre-
: sumption is strong that the cause
is general and world-wide.
To lay   hold  of  the essential
facts relating to the world-wide
price movement is desirable.   We
i are entering a political campaign
\ in which there is to be discus-
ision of the cost of living.   All
! sorts of foolish partisan explan-
j ations will be offered.   Professor
' Seligman of Columbia recently
I aptly said:    ' 'The small man who
sees  no further than  his  nose
i sees only the small local causes
so in this  country   he   ascribes
high prices to the tariff or the
\ trusts.     But   a   man    with   a
broader view realizes that the
situation is just about the same
; in countries where there are no
'tariffs and no trusts."
In 1896, after a twenty-year
J downward swing in prices, the
bottom was reached. The coun-
I try had patiently endured the
grinding fall. Then suddenly,
in the verv vear that saw a
change in the price tide, the
price question got into politics.
Large numbers of persons said
the dollar was too big, as they
say now it is too small. The
mistake of Mr. Bryan was not in
emphasizing the quantitative
theory of money and in asserring
that prices had gone down
because gold had gone up, but in
not seeing that the mines of the
world had at last become active
, enough to warrant the statement
that the fall in prices had been
stopped and the prediction that a
rise was to occur. The prediction
as been verified and the world is
crying out either for a dollar
that will buy more or a readjust
ment of wages and incomes conforming to the present price level.
The price question is in politics
in 1912 as it was in 1896, although the complaint now is the
contrary of the complaint of sixteen years ago.
And as in 1896 occurred the
change in the price tide, so it is
probable that present prices are
at the maximum, and that the
tendency will be downward rather than upward. The production
of gold during 1911 was larger
than in any previous year, but
the increase was relatively slight
The world's gold production has
gone up only about one million
ounces in the last three years. As
the demand for gold as money
and in the arts is greater than
ever, it seems likely that there
is a balance between supply and
demand. It is the habit of the
more unintelligent of mankind to wake up to dangers when
they have passed or are passing.
They did it in 1896 and they are
getting ready to do it again in
1912.
If the value of basic money in
the world affects the level of average prices; if it be true that
the fall in prices from 1872 to
1896 was coincident to a small
increase in the supply of basic
money, and that the rise in prices
from 1896 has been coincident to
a large increase in the supply of
basic money���if these things are
true, then the outlook is for
steady or falling prices, for the
gold supply is not likely to become much larger.���N. Y. Globe.

"CAPTAIN" PALMER
IN HANDS OF POLICE
Man Known In Hazelton
Appears In Police Court
at Vancouver On Charges
of Fraud.
An individual who is not unknown in Hazelton, having
flourished here, for some weeks,
a couple of years ago, appears to
have fallen into the hands of the
Vancouver police. The Province
says:
"Captain Palmer, allegedly
otherwise known in the city as
the Hon. Wil'iam Palmer, and
said by some to be the son of
Lord Selborne, a British peer, is
locked up in the cells at the city
jail awaiting trial on several J
charges of obtaining money under
false pretences. The man is
alleged to have obtained money
by cashing cheques on a bank at
Quesnel when there were allegedly no funds there to meet
them.
"For several weeks the police
have been anxious to lay their
hands on Palmer, but they did
not know where he was until
Mr. Ernest Baker, who conducts
a grocery store at the corner of
Fifteenth avenue and Heather
street, went down to the police
station yesterday to swear out a
warrant for his arrest. Mr.
Baker's reason for his action
was that he claims a few days
ago h e had been given two
cheques, one for $13 and one for
$25, by Palmer. The smaller
cheque was in payment of an
account for groceries, but the
other was cashed by him on
Palmer's statement that he needed the money to take a trip to
Victoria, and that the bank was
closed. Mr. Baker said he had
no particular reason to be suspicious until he got into conversation with the man from
whom Palmer had rented a house.
This man, says Baker,  told him
that a $35 cheque which had
been given to him by Palmer had
been refused by the bank at
Quesnel, and Barker, in order to
protect himself he says, went to
the police station.
"There he found there had
been half a dozen people ahead
of him, but the police were very
glad to see him, for he bore the
first definite information as to
the whereabouts of the wanted
man. Detective Champion was
sent up to 3327 Heather street,
where he arrested Palmer when
he came home for the evening.
"The particular charges which
he will be called upon to plead to
tomorrow when he comes up for
hearing are two: one, that on
December 1 he obtained $75 by
false pretences from George
Stump, and the other that he
obtained a similar amount from
the Fraser Hardware Company.
"Palmer was at one time in
the Royal Northwest Mounted
Police, and it is said that he
holds a commission in the Canadian militia. He is well known
throughout the Cariboo country."
According to later accounts,
the accused has been admitted
to bail.

Fishing Industry Grows
The first of a fleet of fishing
vessels to be built for the Skeena
river syndicate has been launched

Goose Bay Smelter
"Construction work on our
proposed smelter at Goose Bay,
Observatory Inlet, will be started
early this spring. The plant
will have an initial capacity of
2000 tons daily and will make a
bid for the treatment of custom
ores from northern British Columbia and southeastern Alaska,"
said Mr. F. M. Sylvester, assistant general manager of the
Granby Consolidated Mining &
Smelting Company o f Grand
Forks to the Province.
"The smelter will be in operation in the spring of 1913 and
will be enlarged from time to
time to meet future requirements.
Meantime development work on
our Hidden Creek copper-gold
group at Goose Bay is in progress
and already vast ore reserves
have been blocked out. Surface
operations will be resumed in the
spring when we will probably
have a payroll of four or five
hundred men, exclusive of the
men engaged in smelter construction. A tramway from the
mine to the smelter site on the
shore will also be built this year.
We have not bonded any other
properties but have a lot of data
secured by Mr. W. Yolen Williams, our consulting engineer,
w h o toured all the northern
camps last summer."
