A Fiddler Creek Find
L. C Knauss has returned
from Fiddler creek, and tells of
some remarkable ore showings
in the new district, which lies
just below Lome creek, somewhat noted as a placer district.
Mr. Knauss has three claims on
Knauss mountain, opposite Fiddler mountain, on which the
noted Burns & Quinn mineral
properties are located, and four
miles from the railway. He has
a contact vein of quartz, traceable for a considerable distance
and carrying high values. Two
assays obtained yesterday returned $58 and $154 a ton, respectively. The latter assay included $108 in gold, 25 ounces
of silver and 9.1 percent, copper.
Mr. Knauss predicts a great
future for this mineral section of
Omineca district.

Grand Trunk train was wrecked
today five miles west of here.
The diner and a day coach jumped the track, telescoping the rest

War Is Costly

in progress.
Great Britain Will
Organize Air Fleet
London, Sept. 23.���Great
Britain is to have an air fleet as
result of recent maneuvres in
East Anglia. The war office
authorities are so impressed with
the necessity that a great fleet of
war planes will be organized immediately. It will comprise two
types of machines, one armed
with quickfiring guns, and the
other will be designed for scouting.
Just as artillery clears the way
for infantry these giant aeroplanes will seek to sweep from the
air all opposing air craft, and to
prepare a clear passage for the
swift scouts which will be sent
into the sky in squadrons,
TROUBLE FEARED
IN IRELAND TODAY
Protest of Ulster Men Against
Home Rule May Provoke
Serious Disorder
Portadown, Ireland, Sept. 26:���
Rifles, cannon, uniformed nurses
and ambulance wagons were features in the parade of the Ulster-
men here yesterday and today.
A stalwart Orangemen, greeting Sir E. Carson, said "Glad to
meet ye. To hell with the Pope!"
The Ulster leader thanked him
for his greeting, but rebuked him
for his reference to the Pope.
Thousands of troops are being
sent to Ulster in readiness for
the demonstration scheduled for
Saturday, when the Unionists of
the county will sign the solemn
league and covenant. Bloodshed
is feared.

BULKLEY VALLEY FAIR WAS
AN UNQUALIFIED SUCCESS
Exhibition of Northern Interior Products Last
Saturday Remarkable for Diversity and Excellence���Great Crowd in Attendance Enjoyed Events of Day���List of Prizewinners
Noteworthy as marking the
beginning of an era of broader
prosperity for the Northern Interior was the first annual fair
of the Bulkley Valley Agricultural Association, held o n the
Telkwa athletic grounds last
Saturday. The event was successful even beyond the expectations of the promoters. The exhibits came not only from the
district immediately tributary
to Aldermere and Telkwa,
but from the big agricultural
areas which stretch from
Kispiox to Francois and
Ootsa lakes, all varieties of
produce being represented in
displays which astonished visitors
by their excellence.
The weather was as perfect as
only a fall day can afford, and
the large crowd from every part
of the Interior which was in attendance thoroughly enjoyed the
occasion. The fair was opened
by H. S. Clements, M. P., who
assured his hearers that the
Dominion government would
willingly assist their efforts t*
advance the agricultural interests
of the district. As evidence of
the interest taken in the enterprise by the provincial government, Government Agent Allison
was in attendance, with W. H.
Robertson, representing the minister of agriculture.
The profusion of farm products
entered as exhibits in the various
classes was well displayed, and
would be hard to surpass in much
older communities, while the exhibits of live stock were of an
excellence remarkable in a comparatively new district. Although
the association had wisely decided not to make the ore exhibits competitive, there was a
display of rich minerals which
opened  the eyes of the  mining
men who attended, showing indisputably that the agricultural
possibilities of the district, great
as they are, comprise only a portion of the wealth of the Northern Interior. The character and
arrangement of the ore exhibit
evoked enthusiastic comment
from every visitor.
A  long list of prizes, in cash
and goods, of consfderable aggregate value, was offered for com-
! petition,   and  the awards of the
i judges, though at times difficult
of decision,   owing to the excel-
I lence of the competing exhibits,
j were received with general satis-
i faction. The committee in charge
|and   T. J.   Thorp,   the   efficient
j secretary, have every  reason to
| be proud of the auspicious manner in which the annual fair of
the B. V. A. A. was inaugurated.
Passing of Cartwright
Kingston: The funeral of Sir
Richard Cartwright was held today. Premier Borden and Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, at Ottawa, paid
high tributes to his memory. His
death leaves the eighth vacancy
in the senate.

On Wednesday last Aviator Paul
Peck was dashed to death when

at the Chicago meet.
Otto Lillienthal was the first
aviator killed, while he was
experimenting with a glider at
Rhinbow, Germany. Peck was
the thirty-second aviator killed
in America, and the tenth killed
in the United States this year.
Of this number five were killed
since August 1,
The Amusements
The amusement features of the
day were quite on a par with the
j general excellence of the fair.
The hurdle jumping contest, the
only equine event of the program, was won by Carr Brothers'
entry.     Enthusiastic   horsemen
! connected with the Agricultural
association   propose,    however,

The fire organization of Hazelton is again complete, as the result of the annual meeting, held
last Saturday evening and adjourned   to   Tuesday   evening,
when the election and tnd^^^j^^'i^'^fi^ggi^l
ments were confirmed by a public meeting. Satisfaction was
expressed with the work of the
brigade, which has been well
done, notwithstanding the unavoidable absence of several officers during the summer. The
financial condition of the organization is excellent, a public sub-
having been taken up to cover
liabilities and provide a reserve
fund for emergencies.

of   Victoria,   vice-president   for,
British Columbia.
Among  the   features  of   the,
session  was a call for an  early
action on the naval question.    A j
report  which  was presented to j
the convention declared that the1
immigration laws, in their present form, amounted to class legislation, were  unjust and inadequate, and were largely dictated
by certain   labor   organizations.
Another report stated that 20,000
freight cars and 400 locomotive.-;
would be built in  Canada  this
year.
The extra-provincial company
license laws were severely criticised. R. I). Fairbairn, of Toronto, declared the railways were

the British Navy. After what is
likely to be' a short session,
the house is expected to adjourn
until January, when the regular
session 'will open. A general
elecli.on next year is looked  for.

Saturday, September 28, 1912.
No. 4.
In yesterday's issue, our local contemporary attempts to offset
The Miner's criticism of H. S. Clements, but succeeds only in
giving a quite typical exposition of backwoods journalism of the
sort which is, happily, passing away as education becomes general.
Aside from personal abuse, the only answer to The Miner's arraignment of Mr. Clements is the statement that the member's
explanation of his actions was "quite satisfactory to practically all
the members" of the Conservative association. The relations between Mr. Clements and the local Conservative organization are
not as yet matters of public concern and it is, perhaps, needless to
say that our contemporary is in no way qualified to speak on behalf
of the association. He is not a member of the organization, nor is
he in the confidence of the executive.
The Miner is accused of participating in a "war of spite against
New Hazelton townsite owners, and incidentally against the people
of Old Hazelton and the northern interior." The charge is baseless. The Miner has no animus against the New Hazelton promoters. At the same time we fail to perceive wherein the people
of Hazelton and the Northern Interior are in any way indebted to
them. They are engaged in an effort to promote a townsite which
is not favored by the people of the present town, who have asked
for, and obtained the promise of, a station at a point which will be
convenient to Hazelton, prolonging the life of the town, and affording an admirable location for a permanent city when the time
comes to abandon the old site. The New Hazelton interests should
not be surprised that the people of Hazelton have declined to abandon their old locations in order to settle on a site which does not
meet with general approval. There are people in Hazelton who are
in favor of the New Hazelton location; but it is worthy of note
that not one of the strongest advocates of that townsite has removed his business to the much-boosted new town.
A Sleuth's Error
Chicago, Sept. 23:��� Failure to
capture two members of a gang
of safeblowers who stole $272,000
from the Bank of Montreal in
New Westminster B. C, was
made the basis of charges by
Chief o f Police McWeeney
against two of his subordinates,
Captain John J. Mahoney and
Lieut. Benjamin Burns.
It is alleged that Mahoney and
Burns, knowing that the two
robbers were in a saloon here,
engaged in a Sherlock Holmes
attempt to have Burns, disguised,
take the thieves single-handed.
Burns was beaten by the robbers
and is in the hospital.
The police assert that the two
robbers who escaped Lieut.
Burns have in their possession
upward of $150,000 of the loot
taken from the Bank of Montreal
in New Westminster and were
trying to dispose of it when
Burns attempted to capture them.
The Consular Service
Ottawa. Sept, 23. ��� Arrang-
ments have been completed between Sir Edward Grey, secretary
of foreign affairs, and Hon.
George E Foster, minister of
trade and commerce, by which
the whole of the British consular
service, extending to every point
in the world, will be placed at
the disposal of Canadian commercial interests.
Means are provided also for
building up a distinct Canadian
consular service under the auspices of the British service. The
plan should prove of greatest
value to Canadian exporters,
as arrangements are made for
securing information rapidly,
while authentic information as to
Canadian resources and development will be available in all
parts of the globe.
shifted to the Atlantic, but the
chief cause of the change must
be ascribed to the transference
of the centre of communication.
j This was greatly accelerated by
such inventions as the steamship,
J and the electric telegraph.   But
;the change was utilized to give
! Great Britain the first place
among the arbiters of the  new
I centre of influence. The logic of
thought and the natural course
of events might well suggest
that it would now be the turn of
I the United States to become the
centre  of  world   thought;   but
i Japan does not so read history.
j She occupies on the Pacific the
same position that England does
Ion the Atlantic; and she hopes
! ultimately to become the same
centre of world communications
| and command the same influence.
Japanese Ambition
To show that Japanese ahibi-
tion is based on no vague and
sentimental theory it may be
said that the nation expects within the next fifty years to become
the centre of world communications. It is an avowed conviction
of Japanese statesmen that this
position will give her a supreme
advantage over all her competitors in the race for sea power on
the Pacific. The completion of
the Panama canal and the dpuble-
tracking of the Transsiberian
railway is expected to take place
simultaneously i n 1915. From
the moment of these achievements Japan will become the
meeting point of Oriental communications. It has already been
announced by the leading thinkers of the country that the completion of these two most important lines of world communication
will place Japan in the centre of
Pacific influences. I am but indirectly quotin}1 Japanese statesmen that nothing less can be the
ambition of the nation. Looking
back across the tides of human
history Japan notes that there
was a period when the Mediterranean was the centre of world
communication. She perceives
how this was utilized to place
Rome in the forefront of power.
In   time   the  centre  of  power
The Ulster Covenant
Belfast, Sept. 23:���Sir Edward
Carson,   ex-solicitor general  of
Ireland,  will submit for the ap>
proval of  the   Ulster Unionists
', council the wording of the covenant    which    Ulster    Unionists
(throughout the province will sign
i on September 28.   The covenant
will be as follows:
"Being convinced that home
: rule   will be  disastrous to the
' material well-being of Ulster, as
'��� will as to the whole of Ireland,
subversive to our civil and religious freedom and perilous to
the unity of empire,  we whose
: names are underwritten, men of
'Ulster,   loyal   subjects  of  His
j Majesty,   King George,  humbly
! relying on God,  in  whom   our
fathers relied in days of stress
| and   trial,    confidently    hereby
I pledge ourselves in solemn cove-
| nant throughout this, our time of
i threatened   calamity to stand by
one   another   in   defending   for
ourselves and  for our children,
lour cherished  position  of equal
citizenship in the United Kingdom,   and using all  the means
J which may  be  found   necessary
jto defeat the present conspirators
to set up home rule in  Ireland,
and in the event of such parliament being forced upon us, we
humbly and mutually pledge ourselves to refuse to recognize its
authority, in the sure confidence
that God will defend the right."
Part of Booty Found
Chicago, Sept. 23: Part of the
$272,000 loot the robbers got
from the Bank of Montreal at
New Westminster, B. C, and
which was hidden here, has been
recovered by the Chicago police,
according to an admission of
Assistant Chief Schuettler. It
was estimated that the amount
would run into the thousands, in
Canadian bills of large denominations.

From Sweden comes a strange
story. During the recent manoeuvres asoldier named Blomquist
received a bullet in the head as
the result of the awkwardness
of a comrade. Trepanning was
resorted to, and half of the brain
removed. The man was discharged
as cured, and took his place in the
ranks again, but some of his
faculties were found to be deficient, and in particular he had forgotten how to read and write. He
was discharged from the army
and was made tho object of study
by some doctors, who���to coin a
world re-educated him. In addition to his pension, Blomquist
receives an allowance of��50 a year
from a learned society the members of which wish to keep him
under observation.

Properties of Platinum
The mineral called platinum is
really a'nalural alloy of platinum,
iridium, rhodium, palladium and
often osmium, with varying
amountsof iron, copper, and gold,
according to the United States
Geological Survey. It is usually
found as small nuggets, scales,
and rounded or irregular grains;
its color is steel gray. The specific gravity of the crude platinum varies from 14 to 19. The
percentage of 'the metal varies
also within wide limits, usually
from 70 to 85 percent, Platinum
is almost wholly produced in
California and Oregon, and the
output for the United States is
practically limlte 1 to these states.
Owing to its high melting points
and great resistance to acids,
platinum is extensively used for
laboratory Utensils. Platinum
salts are employed in chemical
analysis. In the manufacture
of Bulpuric aid the metal has been
used in making large concentration kettles, but of late gold has
been substituted for it. In photography, dentistry and electric
installation much platinum is used
Of late the manufcacture of
jewelry has consumed large
quantities of it, It is extensive
used foi* the chains and for the
setting of diamonds, the claim
being made not only that it is
more resistant than silver and
harder than gold, but that the
stones are better offset by platinum and appear larger than in
any other kind of setting.
Owing to the high prices
! demanded for platinum during the
, last two years, a great demand
1 for a substitute has arisen.

I ami  Tnnarrnei on Ife I
Vancouver, Sept. 23: Bringing
news of the planting of a bronze
monuirrent on the shores of the
Arctic Ocean, indicating the
northern end of the land boundary
along the 149th meridian separating Dominion and Alaskan territory, Mr. Frederick Lambert of
Ottawa, and a party of nine assistant surveyors, arrived here
this morning direct from the
Far North. Mr. J. D. Craig of
Ottawa, who had charge of the
Canadian work carried out by
several parties in co-operation
with United States surveyors,
are also on their way out and
will likely reach here next week.
The boundary has now been
virtually established all along
the meridian line from Mount St.
Elias to the Arctic. Operations
this season were confined to
work on a 150-mile stretch between the Porcupine Kiver and
the north end of the American
continent. The determination of
the last few miles conclusively
proved that Herschel Island, the
rendezvous of American whalers,
is about forty miles due east of
the meridian line, as it trends
towards the North Pole, and is
therefore British territory. Observations taken by marines had
in a general way previously established the same fact, and for
several years past members of
the Royal Northwest Mounted
Police have occupied the island
and collected duties from the
seafaring people who visit that
locality to hunt whales and trade
with the natives.
Fifty miles from the coast the
boundary crosses a range called
the British Mountains, with an
elevation of 5000 feet. A gentle
ripple of hills then extend northward ending eight or ten miles
from the Arctic Ocean.
Careful measurements by
members of the party showed
that the tides along the coast
rise and fall only seven inches.
No indications of gold or other
metals were discovered along the
last section of the boundary
This, however, should not be
taken as a final conclusion, as
the surveyors were otherwise engaged and the geologists with
the party did not have the leisure
to engage in careful prospecting.
Mr. Lambert stated that the
surveyors had seen a great deal
of the Esquimaux, whom he described as being of fine physical
appearance and expert hunters.
Farther in land'.he party also saw
a good many Indians. Several of
the surveyors added that the
northern region is a veritable
sportsman's paradise. Countless
herds of cariboo range the desert
wastes, and other large game
abounds. One surveyor shot a
large grizzly, while a companion
succeeded in securing a polar
bear along the shores of the
Arctic.
A Missouri Seeress
St. Louis, Sept.23. ���While in
cataleptic trances, BessieStewart,
the daughter of a Missouri farmer
utters prophecies and foretells
events so unerringly that allnorth-
east Missouri is amazed. While
in the cataleptic state Miss
Stewart has described deathbed
scenes in distant cities hours before the wires brought the news.
She foretells things day and
weeks before they occur. When
she emerges from the trance she
remembers nothing of what she
has said or had done. At times
she dances for hours through rhythmical mazes stiange to the simple folks of her   neighborhood.
In a letter dated Albanpes,
Africa, she tells of being held a
captive for days by a tribe of
monkeys in the Congo region.
Alternating with a dozen other
personalities which she says take
possession of her is that of a
cave-woman who made her skirts
by sewing together bird skins
with deer sinews and who catches
fish with a stone, according to
the tales told by  Miss Stewart.

New York, Sept. 23:���General
Emiliano Zapata, the rebel chieftain, who is threatening to attack
Mexico City, gives his reasons
for his uprising against President
Madero, in a statement forward-
to the Herald from his camp at
Yautepec, Morelos.
He says: "So that the people
of the United States may know
why this revolution is going on
against Madero in Southern Mexico, I make this statement.
"I charge Madero with making
promises to reduce taxes to induce the people to follow him
against Diaz. He has kept none
of these promises.
"I charge him with promising
to increase the taxes on large
estates, so that the owners would
! have to cut them up, and thus
j give the poor man a chance to
| buy a little farm. He has not
| kept his promise.
"I charge Madero with ignoring the men who helped him win
and with putting into places of
trust at large salaries seventy-
three of his relatives.
"I demand that Madero resign
the presidency and that he and
his family leave the republic forever. The government must not
give him a cent on which to go,

Hazelton's fire-bug has not
been in evidence for two weeks, i
but the vigilance of the police is1
unrelaxed, and every night |
prowler must give a satisfactory
account of himself. Should the

meet the punishment attached to
the dastardly crime of arson. It
may not be generally known
that any person may make an arrest without warrant in case of
any criminal attempt at night.
It will be well for citizens to bear
this in mind.
