HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, 1912
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
President of G. T. P. Says
Station Will Be Built At
South Hazelton
RAILWAY SUPPORTS TOWN
Is Pledged To Locate Station On Official Site���President and General Manager Declare Company Will Make
Promise   Good���Awaiting   Approval
(Special to The Miner)
Prince Rupert, Aug. 23:���Questioned regarding the location of
a railway station at South Hazelton, President Chamberlin and
General Manager Donaldson both
asserted that the Grand Trunk-
Pacific was determined to fulfill
its promise to locate a station at
that point and that the South
Hazelton townsite would have
the entire support of the railway.
Owing, probably, to changes in
the personnel of the staff and the
removal of some of the company's
offices from Winnipeg to Montreal, there had been some delay
in the preparation of the revised
plans required by the railway
board. The president and general manager took steps to hasten
the presentation of the plans to
the railway commissioners, and
there is every reason- to believe
that the members of the board
will immediately- signify their
approval of the proposed changes.
A. C. Aldous and W. P. Murray, who came down trom Hazelton to consult with the railway
officials regarding the new town-
site, left for Vancouver today, on
the same boat with the official
party.
TRAINS TO SEALY
Regular   Passenger Trains Will
Now Run To Railhead
Superintendent Mehan has
notified the board of trade that
No. 2 passenger train will arrive
at Sealey Crossing at 7:10 p. m.
on Mondays, Wednesdays and
Saturdays, beginning today;
while No. 1 passenger train will
leave Sealey Crossing at 11:50 a.
m. on Sundays, Tuesdays and
Thursdays on and after Sunday,
August 26.
Mr. Mehan iscomingto Sealey
on today's train, and will be met
by E. C. Stephenson, J. Mason
Adams and L. L. DeVoin, representing the board of trade, who
will endeavor to make arrangements for a regular freight
service from Sealey to Hazelton.
Curly's New Car
Another automobile is in commission in Hazelton. On Thursday C. R. (Curly) Durant brought
a handsome five-passenger E-M-F
30 from the coast, for service between Hazelton and other points
in the district George McBean
is bringing a one-ton McLaugh-
lin-Buick truck from Prince Rupert, where it is now in use.
With it he will handle local
freight.
Bylaws Quashed
Vancouver, Aug. 21:��� Justice
Murphy today set aside the
Prince Rupert bylaws under
which $121,000 was to have been
raised for electric light, telephones, and a new city hall. The
decree was granted a week ago,
being made absolute when a telegram was received from the city
solicitor of Prince Rupert saying
that the matter would not be
contested.
Harvest Prospects Good
Winnipeg, Man.: Harvest has
started in many districts and,
weather proving favorable, the
most bountiful crop in the history
of the prairie provinces is predicted.
Vice-Regal Visit To
Hazelton Unlikely
It was hoped that the Governor-
General, on his forthcoming trip
t6 the Pacific coast, would visit
Hazelton, but there now appears
to be little ground for expecting
a vice-regal visit. The president
of the board of trade has received a communication from
the A. D. C. to the Duke of
Connaught stating that the
time at the disposal of the Duke
and his party will probably be
too limited to allow of a visit to
Hazelton. The Prince Rupert
committee has arranged a program which allows only eight
hours for the proposed trip up
the Skeena, and if their proposals are approved the journey
will not extend "beyond Kitselas
Canyon.
COTTON CHANCELLOR
OF 0 C. UNIVERSITY
Well-known Legislator Elected
Head of New Institution At
Convocation In Victoria
(Special to The Miner)
Victoria. Aug. 21:��� The first
convocation of British Columbia
University, which opened here
today, was attended by three
hundred members. Hon. T. W.
Paterson, lieutenant-governor of
B.C., and Sir Richard McBride
attended as members. Hon. P.
C. Carter-Cotton was elected
chancellor of the university by a
considerable majority over Sir
Hibbert Tupper. J. S. Gordon,
of Victoria, was elected secretary
and C. D. Rand, of Vancouver,
treasurer.
Ballots were cast for over fifty
nominees for the senate. The
fourteen receiving the highest
numbers of votes were elected,
but for the fifteenth Place Bishop
Du Pencier and E. P. Davis, K.
C, were tied. The question will
be decided later. The only
woman elected to the senate was
Mrs Farris, the wife of a Vancouver lawyer.
Hon. Dr. Young said the university would be conferring degrees in 1914.
The War in Tripoli
Rome, Aug. 19: It is officially
announced that Lieut.-General
Garioni, commander of the Italian troops in Tripoli, had succeeded in establishing a base at
Seura, a town about 65 miles
west of the city of Tripoli, where
the Turks and Arabs had concentrated their forces and had stubbornly resisted the advance of
the invaders. The Italians
carried out the operation of cutting off the large Turco-Arab
force from their caravan routes
to the Tunisian frontier.
The battle lasted all day. It
had a front four miles in extent,
and ended in the retreat of the
Turks, who left numerous dead
in the field. The Italians lost six
men killed and 98 wounded.
in their attacks Zapatistas are
credited with displaying a ferocity hardly equalled in Mexican
warfare.
FAIR OFFICIALS REPLY TO
CHARGES OF MING
Lame Defence Offered To Criticisms On
Management of Ore Exhibit���Rolston Admits Inexperience of Men In Charge���Statement By Hazelton Representative
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, Aug. 22:-- Replying to The Miner's criticism of
the management of the mining
exhibit at the Vancouver fair,
H. B. Brown, superintendent of
the mining department, and
Manager Rolston have sent written statements to the press. Mr.
Brown refers to the visit of L.
L. DeVoin to last year's exhibition as representative of the
mining men of Hazelton, and
says no protest against the
space then occupied can be found
on the files of the association. He
admits that the quarters were inadequate, owing to lack of funds.
With regard to the award of premiums, he states that it has been
the policy of the management to
encourage properties that had
made good or were in the mine-
making class to enter the competition. The judges had decided
in favor of the Portland Canal
mines. "It is not the assertion
that stocks were being sold on
the floor of the exhibition, but
proof, I want to see," he adds.
In his statement he makes no reply to the charge that ores were
wrongly labelled, and gives no-
explanation regarding ores represented to be from Hazelton which
were displayed this year.
Mr. Rolston quotes a letter,
written on June 24, in reply to
Mr. DeVoin's letter of June 19,
in which the manager admits
that last year's exhibit of minerals was in the hands of inexperienced men. In this connection it is to be noted that the
same superintendent-is in charge
of the department this year.
Begging the Question
The defence of the fair officials
is not regarded as complete by
those who are familiar with t,he
facts. L. L. DeVoin, upon reading the despatch printed above,
said: "The protest filed by the
Hazelton representative last year
did not deal with the space
allotted. There was plenty of
room for complaint on other
grounds, and the management
had excused the poor accommodation in advance, promising that
a new building would be devoted
to mining this year, a promise
not since confirmed,
since confirmed.
"In regard to stock selling
there were two outfits in the
mining exhibit endeavoring to
sell stock on the floor of the exhibition building. One was a
cement concern and the other
had a device for saving fine
placer gold. Neither of these
companies has been successful,
so far as I know. The cement
concern was advertising stock
for sale about that time, and
agents at the exhibit were talking up the proposition every day.
The fine gold savers had two men
almost continually at the main
entrance to the exhibit, where
their stand was. One of these
men informed me that thoy had
located many good 'prospects'
and that their plea was to close
sales uptown. The official picture of last year's exhibit shows
the layout of both of these con:
cerns.
"In making awards ��of premiums, we were given to under
stand, the judges took into consideration the amount of development and transportation conditions. No steps were taken, so
far as we could ascertain, to obtain particulars of development
or other conditions with regard
to the Hazelton mines. Hazelton
silver-lead, copper, and zinc ores,
independently assayed, returned
higher values than the ores
which received the premiums.
We were inclined to account for
the treatment accorded our ore
on the ground that Hazelton
properties were not selling stock
in Vancouver. The judges were
appointed by the Vancouver
brokers, one being named by the
mining exchange, a second by
the stock exchange, and the
third by the first two."
Ottawa News
Ottawa, Aug. 23:���The date of
the next session of parliament is
not yet certain, but will probably
be determined upon the return of
Premier Borden, who sails from
England on August 30.
Before leaving for London, Col.
Sam Hughes, minister of militia,
arranged a number of changes
among the senior officers of the
Canadian militia. These include
the retirement, on December 1,
of Col. R. L. Wadmore, D. O. C.
for British Columbia and Yukon,
after thirty years service in the
militia. He will be succeeded by
Col. Roy, of Montreal.
Orders for the recent Canadian
gold coinage are not nearly so
brisk as was anticipated. The
demand is principally in British
Columbia.
China's Troubles
London, Aug. 19:���The execution of Chang Chen Wu by
Chinese Government officials is
compared by the Peking correspondent of the Daily Telegraph
with Napoleon's shooting of the
Due d'Enghien at Vincennes in
1804, and what followed. It is
the turning point, the writer
asserts, in the life of the Chinese
Republic; The correspondent
continues:
"President Yuan Shi Kai,
alarmed at the outcry, is publishing Vice-president Li Yuan
Tiling's telegrams in order to
fasten the blame on that official,
and fearing assassination surrounds himself with troops.
"According to a Chinese news
paper the execution was carried
out in a fiendish manner. General Yuan Chi Kuei, who was entrusted with the execution,
actually dined with his victim in
an European hotel and toasted
him repeatedly. When the dinner was over he followed his victim in another carriage to his
lodging.
"On alighting from the
vehicle, General Yuan Chi Keui
blew a whistle as a signal, whereupon a forest of sabres and bayonets sprung up like magic about
Chang Chen Wu, who was seized,
bound, flung into a mule cart
and carried to the military court.
No evidence was given at the
trial, and the accused officer was
condemned to immediate execution.
Inlander Resumes Run
The steamer Inlander will
leave for Skeena Crossing on
Monday, to bring a cargo of
freight, after being tied up for
several weeks during her captain's illness.
Peking Is Perilous
For Dr. Sim Yat Sen
Shanghai, Aug. 19:��� Dr. Sun
Yat Sen, former provisional
president of China, disregarding
the warning of friends, who fear
for his safety since the execution
of several Hankow generals, left
Shanghai for Peking. General
Muang Sing, who commanded
the southern republican army in
the revolution that overthrew the
imperial government, was to
have accompanied Dr. Sun, but
abandoned the journey.
The southern generals recently
put to death were members of
Dr. Sun Yat Sen's party, the
Tung Men Hui, and were seized
at the capital by direction of
President Yuan Shi Kai, on the
charge of being implicated in a
conspiracy against the Peking
Government.
EARTHQUAKE CAUSES
DEATH AND DISASTER
Thousands Killed and Many
Towns Destroyed On Shores
of Sea of Marmora
Constantinople, Aug. 19:��� An
appalling story of suffering and
damage caused by the recent
earthquake in the region, about
the sea of Marmora, was told by
members of the expedition dispatched Aug. 14 to the vicinity
on board the United States gunboat Scorpion, guardship at Constantinople, which has returned
here.
The number killed in the various towns and villages is placed
at 3,000. and the injured at S.000
Many villages were simply heaps
of charred debris.
Earthquakes occur almost daily
at many places along the coast.
Six shocks were felt yesterday
and many damaged houses collapsed.
At Myrophile the appearance
of the town was deceptive because a number of the houses
standing on the seafront, surrounded by gardens, were intact,
but immediately in the rear,
scarcely a stick or stone was
left upright. Numerous fissures
were observed in the ground,
but none of great size, although
the villagers reported that a
cleft nearly 200 feet deep had
Opened in a hillside eight miles
inland.
The people throughout the district appear stunned by the catastrophe, and made no attempt
to help themselves.
AGED GENERAL
Founder of Salvation Army
Goes To His Reward After
Long Illness
SUCCEEDED BY HIS SON
Brarawell Booth, Named In Father'. Will
Twenty-two Years Ago, Aiiumel the
Leadership of World-wide Organization���Services Throughout Empire
London, Aug. 21:���An outstanding figure in the world's
history passed away yesterday,
when General William Booth,
founder and commander-in-chief
of the Salvation Army, succumbed
to his infirmities. For some
months the aged leader's condition had given his family and
rtaff grave anxiety. In May last
the general underwent an operation for the removal of a cataract from his left eye. The surgeons were unable to restore his
eyesight,, however, and he became totally blind several weeks
before his death.
Under the late General Booth's
will, sealed 22 years ago and
opened today, his son Bramwell
Booth, chief of staff of the Salvation Army, is named as successor to the command. The
new general accepted office at a
great meeting held today.
The funeral of the late leader
will be held on August 29, when
his body will be interred at Stoke
Newington, beside his wife's
grave. Services will be held in
London and in all cities throughout the Empire at the same
hour.
LABOR DAY GAMES
Telkwa and Hazelton Will Play
On Local Diamond
Ball games between the Hazelton and Telkwa teams are
scheduled for September 1 and 2.
The Valley men are reported to
be in fine fettle, and exiting contests may be looked for. One or
more foot races may be made
features of the Labor Day celebration here. The Prince Rupert
people are said to have a speedy
runner to bring here, and a large
number of coast people is expected to attend.
Christians Massacred
Cettinje, Montenegro, Aug. 18;
The massacre of Christians in
the Berana district of Albania
continues. A number of Christian villages were set on fire today by Turkish artillery and
destroyed.
The massacre of Christians at
Berana began last Friday when
a band of Mohammedans supported by Turkish troops attacked
a section of the Christian population close to the Montenegrin
frontier. In the fighting large
numbers of women and children
are reported to have been slain
and the Mohammdans are said to
have carried off many girls.
Returned from Rupert
President li. DeB. Hovell, of
the board of trade, spent the
early part of the week in Prince
Rupert, where he conferred with
Superintendent Mehan of the G.
T. P., with regard to the running of trains to the Sealey
gulch. Mr. Mehan stated that a
permit for the running of trains
pending the approval of the line
from Skeena Crossing had been
obtained from the railway board
and that a regular passenger
train service to and from Sealey
gulch would begin today.
On Tuesday evening Mr. Hovell addressed the Prince Rupert
branch of the Overseas club,
which maintains cordial relations
with the Hazelton branch, of
which Mr. Hovell is president.
The local club presented a gold
Overseas badge to the Prince
Rupert branch, to be used in any
manner desired. The recipients
have decided to offer the emblem
as a prize to the Indian band
giving the best rendering of the
National Anthem on the occasion
of the Governor-General's visit
to Prince Rupert. '...._

No. 52.
That the Grand Trunk Pacific has no intention of receding from
its position in the matter of the Hazelton townsite is evident from
the statements made by President Chamberlin and General Manager Donaldson to The Miner's correspondent in Prince Rupert.
Both these officials informed our representative that South Hazelton has the unqualified support of the railway company, which is
pledged to locate a station there. This effectually disposes of the
report that the G. T. P. had entered into negotiations with other
and less desirable locations.
There is every reason to believe that the revised plans for the
station and yards at South Hazelton, which have been carefully prepared by the engineers of the company in compliance with the requirements of the railway board, will be approved by the commissioners, ancl that before the steel is laid to the station site, the railway company will have authority to construct the station and necessary sidings.
The railway work and improvements incidental to the development of South Hazelton will make big business for the present town
for some months, and definite news of the company's plans and the
approval of the railway commissioners is eagerly awaited here.
WAR CLOUDS ARE
CLEARING AWAY
More Optimistic Feeling Prevails in Great Britain���Prosperity in Prospect.
The Titanic Inquiry
The report of Lord Mersey and
five Assessors on the inquiry into
the loss of the Titanic on April
15th, when 1490 lives were lost,
was published on 30th July.
The reasons for the report are
given in the form of an annex
which covers 70 pages*of print.
We extract the following passages:
"An attack was made in the
in the course of the enquiry on
the moral conduct of two of the
passengers, namely Sir Cosmo
Duff Gordon and Mr. Bruce
Ismay. It is no part of the business of the court to inquire into
such matters, and I should pass
them by in silence if I did not
fear that my silence might be
misunderstood. The very gross
charge against Sir Cosmo Duff
Gordon that having got into No.
1 boat he bribed the men in it
to row away from drowning
people is unfounded. I have
said that the members of the
crew in that boat might have
made some attempt to save the
people in the water, and that
such an attempt would probably
have been successful; but I do
not believe that the men were
deterred from making the attempt by any act of Sir Cosmo
Duff Gordon's. At the same
time I think that if he had encouraged the men to return to
the position where the Titanic-
had foundered, they would probably have made an effort to do
so, and could have saved some
lives.
"As to the attack on Mr. Bruce
Ismay, it resolved itself into the
suggestion that occupying the
position of managing director of
the steamship company, some
moral duty was imposed upon
him to wait on board until the
vessel foundered. I do not agree.
Mr. Ismay after rendering assistance to many passengers found
"C" collapsible, the last boat on
the starboard side, actually being
lowered. No other people were
there at the time. There was
room for him and he jumped in.
Had he not jumped in he would
merely have added one more life,
namely his own, to the number
of those lost."
More important is the passage
dealing with Captain Smith's
navigation of the ship:
"The question is what ought
the master to have done. I am
advised that with the knowledge
of the proximity of ice which the
master had, two courses were
open to him: The one was to
-<tand well to the southward instead of turning up to a westerly
course; the other was to reduce
speed materially as night approached. He did neither. The
alteration in the course at 5:30,
p. m. was so insignificant that it|
cannot be attributed to any intention to avoid ice. This deviation brought the vessel back to
within two miles of the customary route before 11:30 p. m. And
there was certainly no reduction
in speed. Why then did the
master persevere in his course
and maintain his speed? The
answer is to be found in the
evidence. It was shown that
for many years past, indeed for
a quarter of a century or more,
the practice of liners using this
track when in the vicinity of ice
at night had been in clear weather to keep the course, to maintain
the speed, and to trust to a sharp
look out to enable them to avoid
the danger. This practice it was
said had been justified by experience, no casualties having
resulted from it. I accept the
evidence as to the practice and
as to the immunity from casualties which is said to have accompanied it. But the event has
proved the practice to be bad.
Its root is probably to be found
in competition and in the desire
of the public for quick passages
rather than in the judgment of
the navigators. But unfortunately experience appeared to
justify it.
"In these circumstances I am
not able to blame Captain Smith.
He had not the experience which
his own misfortune has afforded
to those whom he has left behind,
and he was doing only what
other skilled men would have
done in the same position. It
was suggested at the Bar that
he was yielding to influences
which ought not to have affected
him: that the presence of Mr.
Ismay on board and the knowledge which he perhaps had of a
conversation between Mr. Ismay
and the chief engineer at Queens-
town about the speed of the ship
and the consumption of coal probably induced him to neglect
precautions which he would otherwise have taken. But I do not
believe this. The evidence shows
that he was not trying to make
any record passage. He was
not trying to please anybody,
but was exercising his own discretion in the way that he
thought best. He made a mistake, a very grievous mistake,
but one in which in face of the
practice and past experience
negligence cannot be said to have
had any part; and in the absence
of negligence it is in my opinion
impossible to fix Captain Smith
with blame. It is, however, to
be hoped that last has been heard
of the practice, and that for the
future it will be abandoned for
what we now know to be more
prudent and wiser measures.
What was a mistake in the case
of the Titanic would without
doubt be negligence in any similar case in the future."
London, Aug. 19:��� A wave of
optimism has overspread Britain
and a more hopeful feeling prevails on this side than for a long
time.
An amicable settlement of the
Italo-Turkish struggle is believed
to be near. Negotiations following the visit of the French premier to the czar are are understood to be connected not only
with a new naval convention but
also with the situation in the
Far East.
It is reported that a policy
satisfactory to all countries has
been arranged. This agreement
it is believed will render more
assured the peace of Britain.
Satisfaction is generally expressed in England with the attitude of the American press concerning the Panama Canal, on
the terms of the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty. It is confidently expected that the honor of the
United States will be maintained
when the matter is more fully
considered by Congress.
England is anticipating a
strong demand for money to
move the New World's greatest
crops, but no unpleasant stringency is looked for. The stock
markets are strong, the belief is
prevalent that trade will be
active, profits large, capital and
money plentiful and that labor
troubles in manufacturing centers and districts have been left
behind.
Cheaper food and good wages
] are expected to have a great influence on the prosperity of the
world during the coming season.
The recent fall in cotton staples
appears to have discounted
largely a big crop as the world's
demand for cotton goods is likely
to remain heavy.

Eastern Canada Looks Upon
This Land with Splendid
Pride, Says Willison.
BRITISH PRESTIGE OURS
Journalist of International Note, in Im-
perialiitic Speech, Pay�� Tribute to
Greatnen of Canadian Weit���Advocate! Exchange of Educationists with
the East.
In a speech delivered before
the Canadian Club of Vancouver,
J. S. Willison, the noted journalist, said that the Canadian people
have an obligation to preserve
their great heritage and do their
honorable share to accept the
obligation. The late Hon. Edward Blake has referred to the
west as a sea of mountains, but
civilization's progress has made
the west a marvelously productive
land.
"A few years ago," said Mr.
Willison, "many Canadians went
to Michigan and other places to
the south. Now, however, we
have a happier prospect���instead
of Canada breeding citizens for
the United States, she is now
breeding them for Western Canada. There is represented in this
new population a fair degree of
the influence of character which
made older Canada. Just as one
cannot know the dignity of the
British nation without a trip to
London, Birmingham and other
parts of the motherland, so one
cannot realize the dignity of
Canadian citizenship until one
has visited the West and its outposts.
"If I had the say, I would not
allow a man to become a member
of parliament till he had first
visited the West. Just so one is
not fitted for the British Parliament till he has visited the dominions over-sea. I would recommend that after the close of
each session, the members spent
at least two months visiting different parts of Canada.
"We of the east look upon the
west with splendid pride. The
West has done for our own sons,
perhaps, better than we have
done at home. It is just as important that the West sympathize with the East, and know its
problems as the we should sympathize with you."
Continuing along the line of
thought of the growing population of the West the speaker said
that Canada today is receiving
as many immigrants annually as
the United States received when
her population was 25,000,000.
"But it raises problems of great
significance to every patriotic
Canadian," he said.
This country, he intimated, is
deeply concerned in the action of
the United States with respect
to tolls through the Panama
canal and he expressed the belief
that the matter would be satisfactorily settled by the United
States itself. "I believe," he
said, "for thirty years, I have
studied the United States and
American institutions as carefully as any other Canadian. I
do not believe any great nation
can evade or ignore the plain
language of a treaty."
"We all know the United
States could not have constructed
the Panama canal as an American undertaking without Great
Britain first relinquishing certain
territorial rights. I believe that
sober thought will be expressed
and it will not be through any
outside interference, but from an
expression of that moral force
always found in the United States
in the crises of its history."
Mr. Willison touched briefly on
matters of education by reference to fact that there will soon
be laid here the foundation for
a great college. "The west," he
said, "is providing for the spiiit
and mind as liberally as any
other part of the continent.  You
ought to rear here a university
of singular interest and singular
efficiency."
He added that the west and
the east ought to change professors, and, that though this
might be thought the visionary
opinion of an editor they ought
even to exchange scholars.
On imperialism he was most
positive saying that only as a
British dominion is Canada's future secure. He asked if, with
two great coasts, Canada could
neglect to prepare for sea defence. "Do we believe," he
asked, "we could save British
Columbia from an Asiatic invasion if it were not for our dependence on our Mother Country?"
Continuing on this topic he expressed the opinion that Canada,
as a self-respecting people, must
assume its fair share in the protection of the sovereignity of
Great Britian.
"Our greatest prestige is our
British citizenship,"     he   said.
"A war which would overthrow
| the empire would  be a collosal
calamity," he added.
ENORMOUS GRAFT OF
NEWJTORK POLICE
Officials of Force Fattened on
Tribute Extorted from Lawbreakers of City.
New York, Aug. 19:��� In the
search for evidence to convict the
murderers of the gambler Herman Rosenthal, the state's attorney and the grand jury have unearthed a wealth of information
showing that gamblers and keepers of disorderly houses paid
sums amounting to hundreds of
thousands of dollars yearly for
police protection.
The monthly tariffs paid to the
j police vary.   First-class uptown
j gambling  houses paid $1000; a
j middle class gambling house paid
$500; East side gambling house
paid anywhere from $100 to $400;
high-class poolrooms $600,  while
poker and dice games paid $300.
Uptown disorderly  houses  paid
$600 while East Side resorts paid
$100.
With the co-operation of all the
banks in the city, District Attorney Whitman has been able to
obtain the names of four police
inspectors whose bank accounts
run into several hundred thousand dollars. One inspector is
said to have accumulated a million dollars.
Worth Sending For

agent, PrinceRupert. Mr. Handasyde, who handles every description of machinery and appliances for mining and prospecting,
as well as a '.'omplete line of
farming implements and machinery, has prepared an index of the
various lines he carries, which
will prove of value to residents
in the Interior. This index will
also be sent to those who address
a postal card to the address given

J. B. Brun,
Proprietor
Washington, Aug. 19:��� It is
said to he reasonably certain no
further protest will be made by
Great Britain on behalf of
English mercantile interests
against the Panama Canal Bill if
it takes finally the form reported
from the conference committee.
The British objection was laid
against discrimination against
1 the British shipping. As such
shipping is not now privileged to
enter into the American coast-
1 wise trade, which alone under
the committee's report, is to receive favored treatment in the
canal, that objection is overcome.
It is regarded as possible,
however, that in deference to
Canada, the British Government
may object to the prohibition of
the passage of railroad-owned
ships. State department officials,
however, are confident that this
objection would not hold under
the treaty as the prohibition is
applied to American vessels as
well as others, and there could
be no charge of discrimination.
An agreement on the Panama
(Canal Administration Bill was
reached by the conference committee of the House and Senate
j in which free passage is denied
to American-owned ships engaged in foreign trade. Foreign
shipbuilding materials are admitted free of tariff to the United
States and the Interstate Commerce Commission is given power
to break up any combination of
competing rail and water lines
which it finds is not for "the
public good."
As perfected in the conference
j committee,   the canal   bill now
provides:
Free passage for American
ships engaged in coastwise trade.
American registry for American-owned, foreign built ships

trade.
No tariff on foreign shipbuilding materials for use in this
country.
Trust-owned ships prohibited
from the canal.
Railroads prohibited from own-
I ing   competing waterway  lines
operating "through the canal or
elsewhere."
One-man government for Panama Canal and canal zone.
In dropping the Senate clause
giving free passage to American
ships engaged in the foreign
trade, the conference committee
'yielded to those who considered
that clause a direct violation of
^ the treaty with Great Britain.
Practically all the force of the
Bourne railroad amendment attached to the bill in the senate
i was retained by the conference
I committee.   It was rewritten to
| give   the Interstate   Commerce
j Commission the right to determine whether railroads should be
allowed to hold water lines and
to sanction such ownership when
it was in the public interest.
The railroad section of the bill
is drastic and broad in the powers it confers on the Interstate
Commerce Commission. It prohibits railroads, after July, 1914
from owing or controlling competing steamer lines, "operating
through the Panama Canal or
elsewhere," and gives to the Interstate Commerce Commission
the power to determine whether
the railroad and the steamship
lines are "competing carriers"
within the meaning of the law.
BALE THE HAY
By G. H. Alpord
Baled hay is much more valuable as a feed then loose hay,
even when the loose hay is well
housed. Loose hay carries a
great quantity of dust and often
gives the farm animals a severe
cough while baled hay does not.
Baled hay takes up about one-
fifth as much room as loose hay
and for this reason the entire
crop of baled hay can usually be
stored under cover while loose
hay must be exposed to the
weather in stacks and ricks.
Baling breaks up coarse hay
so that the stock will eat it more
readily and there is no waste in
feeding baled hay.
Baled hay is always ready for
the market. It is convenient
and satisfactory to handle in
every way. It can be hauled by
team or shipped by railroad.
Much of the tops and sides of
the stacks is spoiled by the
weather.
Loose hay becomes dusty and
musty. Baling keeps out the
dust and preserves the hay
Baled hay retains much of the
sweet hay odor that stock relish.
There is a freshness and appetizing quality and feeding value in
baled hay that is never found in
loose hay.
We    should   bale    our
whether we feed it on our
farms or sell it.    Of course,
market demand is for baled
and for baled hay only, and
hay
own
the
hay
for
only
mar-
this reason baling is the
way to be sure of having a
ket for it.
The growing of hay and especially leguminous hays such as
cowpea, soy bean, peanut and
lespedeza will rapidly increase
the fertility of our soil, make the
growing of good livestock profit
able and add very much to the
income on the farms.
We can buy a one-horse or a
two-horse pull power hay press
or we can buy a motor hay press,
For the small farmer who bales
his own hay, the one-horse pull
power hay press will prove very
satisfactory and economical.
With it he can bale his hay at
the time most convenient and
with a small amount of help.
For the farmer who grows large
quantities of hay or for the farmer who bales hay for his neighbors, the two-horse pull-power
or the motor hay press is nee es-
sary.
Of course, no man can tell the
exact capacity of any hay press
as this depends to a considerable
extent upon the kind and quality
of hay being baled, the skill of
the operators, and the speed of
the team. However under ordinary conditions a 14x18 two-horse
pull power hay press will bale
about 8 tons per day, a 14x18
press operated with a three-horse
power engine will bale about 12
tons per day, a 16x18 press with
a four-horse power engine about
14 tons per day, and a 17x22
press with six-horse power engine
16 tons per day.
We should purchase a hay
press that has been designed for
convenience. There should be a
considerable distance between
the sweep and the feeding table.
Both of these points should be
located at the extreme end of
the press so that the baling
chamber may be set well into the
interior of the shed or barn and
ample room be had for the revolution of the sweep to be made
outside of the shed or barn. Another advantage of the arrangement of such a press is that the
bale chamber may be set between
two stacks and fed from both
stacks without resetting the
press. The close arrangement of
feeding table and sweep will not
allow sufficient space for the
sweep to describe the circle
necessary to operate the press.
The reach bed should not be
more than four or five inches
high to enable the horses to walk
over it without the least trouble.
When operating presses that have
a high step-over, the horses will
generally slow down, hesitate,
and often, stumble at this point,
which is annoying to the man,
wearing on the horses, and slackens the speed of the press.
The power construction of the
press should be such that when
the horses reach the step-over,
they are pulling practically no
load. One stroke should be completed before they reach the step-
over and the load of the next
stroke should not begin until the
low narrow step-over has been
passed.
The bale chamber should be
very low so that it is an easy
matter to reach across and tie
the bale. This saves much time
and trouble as, in tying the bale,
it is not necessary to go around
the bale chamber to the opposite
side.
The press should be principally
constructed of steel and high
grade iron and should be strong
and durable.
The two-horse pull power press
and the motor baling press should
have a self-feed attachment as it
increases the capacity of the
press and at the same time reduces the work of feeding the
press.
The hay press is a money
maker and a money saver and
should be used on every farm.
