Efforts to Secure Exclusion
Failing, Ulsterites Propose
To Take Decisive Action
London, July 24:���The Buckingham Palace conferences between the King and the party
leaders, through which it was
hoped a solution of the Home
Rule problem would be found,
have proved abortive, through
failure to agree on the area of
Ulster to be excluded from control of the Dublin parliament.
Such was the statement made in
the house of commons by Premier Asquith. The conferees, he
said, were unable to agree on
the principle or details concerning the area to be excluded, and
the meetings were brought to a
close.
A Belfast despatch says that
the Ulster leaders, satisfied now
that nothing can come of the
conference, are hastening their
plans for mobilization of their
forces. It is reported there will
be a general mobilization on Saturday, with the possibility that
a provisional government may be
proclaimed on Monday, Ulster's
military operations are costing
a huge sum, estimated at ��7,000
daily, for which reason delay'i-
unpopular.
Interested in Coal
A visitor in Hazelton this week
was Frank Frank, of Vancouver,
a coal man who is greatly interested in recent developments in
the coal fields of the district. He
expressed satisfaction with what
he saw during his brief visit to
the district, and declared his intention of coming again, for a
longer stay.
Hunters Will Outfit Here
Chief Constable Minty has received advice from a prominent
New York sportsman, who proposes to spend some weeks hunting big game in the district north
of Hazelton. Other hunting parties are also expected to outfit
here during the coming fall.
More Deals in Prospect
The recent bonding of L. C
Knauss' property on Fiddler
Mountain, marks a long forward
stride in the development of the
country immediately tributary to
the Skeena river valley, and now
comes the rumor that still another equally important mining
transaction will soon be consummated in the same locality.
From ores averaging from $15
to $19 a ton Colorado paid in dividends last year $2,241,020 from
an output of $14,435,520, and
for the same period Tonopah distributed in dividends $2,953,482
from an output of $10,016,968.
At Tonapah ores running three
dollars a ton are treated profitably.
W. J. O'Neill and Miss Marion
Steele, both well known and popular in Hazelton, were married in
Vancouver this week. They will
reside in Smithers.
Preparing For
Redistribution
Victoria, July 23:���The heavy
increase in the population of the
province in recent years and the
opening up to settlement of large
areas of lands making it essential
to reconstruct territorial representation in the British Columbia
Legislature, His Honor the Lieu-
tenant-Governor-in-Council has
appointed Mr. Justice Macdonald
and Mr. Justice Morrison, of the
Supreme Court bench, a Royal
Commission to report on the
basis of a redistribution measure
to be presented to the legislature
at the next session.
Vancouver, July 24:���Justices
Morrison and Macdonald were
sworn in as commissioners to investigate matters in connection
with redistribution, before Justice Murphy. They will begin
their duties at once, leaving tomorrow for Kamloops, where the
first meeting will be held on July
31. After visiting other interior
points, the commission will return to Vancouver before starting
for Edmonton, enroute over the
G. T. P. to visit the towns and
settlements of the northern interior and the Skeena river,
PICNIC FRIDAY, JULY 31
Owing to unfavorable weather,
the annual general picnic of Hazelton district has been postponed for a week. It is now intended to hold the event next Friday,
in the recreation park at Hazelton Hospital. The committee in
charge has arranged an excellent
program of games and sports,
and the big crowd which is expected to attend will see many
entertaining and amusing features. Everybody in Hazelton,
New Hazelton, and the surrounding district is invited to be present.
Mrs. Field, who has been visiting her son Fred, at Courtenay,
since returning from England,
arrived in Hazelton on Wednesday evening. A number of friends
were at the station to welcome
the lady of the mission housed
G. C Killam, the Smithers architect, was a visitor here yesterday. He reports good progress in development in the
Smithers distiict, and says the
railway company is expected to
begin work on its big roundhouse
within a week or two.
Ben Peterson, a well-known
prospector, who has made Hazelton his headquarters for several
years, and who has promising
mineral claims in this district,
left on Saturday for a prospecting trip to the Peace river district.
In a ballot of 55,000 enginemen
and firemen on western railroads,
nearly "all voted in favor of a
strike. The managers' conference committee has asked for a
definite statement of the propositions supported by the unions,
and it is hoped an amicable arrangement will result.
INCREASED MINING ACTIVITY
THROUGHPUT THE PROVINCE
Larger Number of Free Miners' Certificates Issued Than
Last Year���Sir Richard McBride Pays Tribute to the
Prospectors Who Have Blazed the Way For Civilization
Victoria, July 23:��� Reports
from the various mining districts
are to the effect that the number
of free miners' certificates issued
this yeai��in British Columbia exceeds by 169 the number issued
up to this time last year. Several outlying recording offices are
yet to be heard from, so that the
increase is certain to be even
greater than the number given.
As the number of licenses issued
is to be taken as an index of the
mining activity of the province,
this showing is regarded as most
satisfactory by Sir Richard McBride, who is minister of mines
as well as premier. Commenting
on the figures,  Sir Richard said:
"I have long held the opinion
that with the opening up of the
country with new lines of railway, territory would be made accessible which would excite the
curiosity of the prospector and
well repay his investigation.
"But it seems timely to say a
word in appreciation of the prospector as a type of citizen. We
can never forget���we should, indeed, never forget���that he it
was who laid the foundation of
all the progress and development
which have taken place in this
marvelous province. With his
pack on his back, and with little
other assets than his strong right
arm and an unconquerable faith
in the country, he went into the
wilderness and disclosed latent
wealth and blazed the trail for
the thousands who came after
him to reap the rewards which
only too often, alas, were denied
him.
"It has always been a matter
of regret to me to feel that in too
many cases these fine pioneers
failed to achieve that success in
life which should be the reward
of faithful effort along the most
laborious lines. It is, of course,
true that, with old age, most of
the pioneer prospectors of the
country have vanished from the
scenes of their former labors,
but'it is most gratifying to learn
that their places are not to be
be left vacant; that the young
men of the present day are manifesting a faith in the mineral
wealth of the country.
"On this latter point, I may
say that private reports which
have reached me respecting the
mineral wealth of those sections
of country which lie closely adjacent to the new lines of railway
are of the most encouraging nature. I feel that intelligent prospecting will surely bring rich rewards to the men who will today
go out into the country and seriously apply themselves to the
task of locating mineral deposits."
Returns just received at the
Hazelton office from the sub-recording office at the confluence of
the Parsnip and Findlay rivers,
where Wm. Fox is deputy recorder, and where there is now considerable prospecting in progress,
increase the number of free
miners' certificates issued in
Omineca division this year to
679, which is fourteen in excess
of the number issued last year.

Winning Two Games From
Smithers, Hazelton Tigers
Are Even With New Town
The two final ball games at
Smithers between the Tigers and
the Valley team resulted, as was
expected, in adding two more
wins to the champions' record,
thus putting Hazelton and New
Hazelton on an even footing for
the pennant. Scores, 15-1 and
11-2.
Earl Pike, the young Seattle
high school pitcher, was seen in
action for the first time since
joining the Tigers, and the general impression was that he looked
good. His fielding and pegs to
first were features of the game.
Graham Rock, the favorite of
both teams, was behind the bat
for Hazelton. His arm appears
to be getting stronger.
Morison and Muldoon were
the Smithers battery. In the
sixth, when he saw the game
was lost, Muldoon wisely took
Morison out, to save him for the
Monday game, himself pitching
the remaining innings in good
style.
The first inning saw no score
for either team. Bob Rock and
Sinclair went out on assists,
pitcher and catcher to first, and
short raked in Doc Rock's fly.
In the second Pike fanned.
Graham Rock started the hitting
with a drive to right. Macdonald followed with one to center,
and Stokke sent a nice one to
left that let both runners in.
Muldoon caught Lipp's fly and
flashed the ball to first, catching
Stokke and retiring the side.
The third brought four runs;
one came in the fourth, two in
the fifth, five in the sixth and
one in the eighth.
Pike struck out the first three
men that faced him. In the
third he struck out Kilts in the
third, Muldoon got a hit to right,
Morison walked and Jardine and
Crandall struck out, but not before Muldoon scored off Macdon-
ald's bad throw to second, which
both Bob and Doc Rock muffed.
In the ninth Welland sent a fly
to left which the fielder mede no
attempt to get.
Hazelton was 37 times at the
bat and scored 15 runs, 10 hits
and two sacrifices, 27 put outs,
mm*
10 assists and one error. Pike
struck out 12. walked two and
hit one batter with pitched ball.
Smithers was at the bat 29
times, scoring one run, two hits,
27 put outs, 12 assists and seven
errors. Morison struck out four,
walked four and allowed nine
hits. Muldoon struck out four,
walked two and allowed one hit.
"Square Deal" O'Neill, as umpire, acquitted himself in hia
usual excellent style.
Following were the batting
orders of the teams:

As shown by the annual report of the Ministerof Mines, which
has just been issued, the mining industry in British Columbia experienced a slight falling-off in 1913, the total production being
over two million dollars less than that of 1912. It must be remembered, however, that 1912 showed an increase in production over
1911 of nine million dollars, and as last year's total is surpassed
only by the record year, we have no cause to feel despondent over
the showing. The official figures, showing the value of mineral
products l'or the last three year, follow:

It will be noted that the decrease in the production of coal,
for which the prolonged labor troubles in the coal mines of Vancouver Island were responsible, accounts for the greater part of
the reduction in total production.

the number of  free miners'licenses, and  in   view of the highly !u j in business and threw my af
with his knife, disclosed within
J a mess of stuff that looked like
scraps of leather swept from the
floor of a harness shop. In a
twinkling our clerical and taciturn fellow traveller became possessed of a devil, and with features black with rage, yelled, as
he dropped the heavy crust,  "���
 a country where dried apple
pie is a  luxury���come on, Liz."
The pall was lifted, the ban
was raised, and during the rest
of the journey the jug went
round at proper intervals, and
all went merry as a marriage
hell.
On reaching the end of track
at Indian Wells, our friend handed us hisjcard, saying, "Whenever any of you boys come to
Tucson, call around and see us."
His card read as follows:

of mineral producing districts.

Expecting to have the coach
'all to ourselves, we were somewhat annoyed to find one of the
three seats occupied by a man
and woman, both past middle
age. The man was smooth shav-
an, with lean and gloomy visage,
"Snickers & Pranks, and garbed as one would  expect
Psychological Chemists." to see a Methodist minister;  the
After a characteristic roast of woman's general appearance was
the "humorist," the writer tells'in harmony with the man's, and
the following leminiscences:
About forty years ago, at a
time when the Southern Pacific
Railway was being constructed
across   the   Colorado  desert  to
we assumed them to be thespiritu-
al shepherd and shepherdess of
some Arizona flock.
We had entered the coach in
high spirits, and were in fine fet-
Fort Yuma, a party of three tie for a jolly trip, but the sedate
prospectors, of which I was a and rather gloomy looking pair
member, together with a mine j acted as a damper on our gaiety,
promoter, boarded a Concord j and soon all conversation ceased,
coach at Yuma, en  route to the the jug remained untouched, and
end of track at Indian Wells.
We had  been prospecting  in
Southern Arizona for a year or
more,   and   the    "optimism, 45
per cent," given men of our calling in the laboratory test of the
Engineering and Mining Journal,
together with its "perseverance,
9 per cent," was justified by our
finding a goodly vein of mighty
rich   chicka-mon   stone.     Our
"education, 5 per cent," enabled
us to write location  notices and
get   them   recorded   in  proper
shape, and our "business sense, table, when the cook appeared,
2 percent," made it possible for saying,   "Hold on, folks, here's
us to consummate a deal with the
aforesaid  mine promoter which
was highly satisfactory   to   all
concerned, and we were  bound
for Los Angeles, to transfer title
and get the dinero with which to
the time dragged heavily along,
until at last we reached the noon
station where we-nvere to change
horses and get a bite to eat. The
lone man who inhabited the
place was stock tender and cook,
and after he had stabled the
stage team, called us to dinner,
which consisted of fried Dacon,
villanous bread, and the rankest coffee.
It didn't need much of this forbidding fare to satisfy us, and
we were about to rise from the
fairs into the hands of a receiver,
by giving my collection of rare
coins and medals to a tramp.
Later I took up the study of
plants and flowers, and wanted
to qualify as a botanist, but was
a jain ur ied down by my dad,
who said, "cut out this useless
stuff, my son, and adopt some
profession or calling that will
mate you useful to yourself and
to the rest of mankind."
Time passed and I went to college, graduated, and returned to
my home. In due time my father
said to me, "Jonas, now that
you have completed your education, I would like to know what
you have got to show for it, and
what sort of a frame up you have
for the future." "I have decided to become a geologist," was
my reply. With blows and maledictions my enraged parent
drove me from the house, bidding me never to return.
Tossed out into the cold world
lo make my living, I began to
see things as they really are, A
great change came over me, and,
strange to relate, after being
useless all my life, and caring
only for useless things, I turned
squarely around and became one
nf the most useful of men���a

The Second Game
On Monday the attendance was
small, owing to the one-sided
score on Sunday. Sinclair and
Bock and Morison and Muldoon
were the batteries. Pike's batting was the feature of the game.
He made two three-baggers and
two two-badgers and walked
once out of five times up.
Graham Rock and Lipp each
smashed out a two-base hit.
The boys returned on Tuesday
morning, and have been getting
in condition for the big game
with New Hazelton on Saturday,
which should be one of the best
of the season. The teams appear
to be well matched, but if
Graham Rock's throwing arm is
in condition the local team should
have a shade the better of the
argument.
There will be no change in the
infield. The outfield will be the
best available, and will be chosen
from this list: Stokke, O'Shea,
Long, Lynch, Berts, Lipp. Morrison.
New Hazelton will be strength
ened by O'Shea from Camp 102
and probably by Tobey of the
Uupert nine. O'Shea was the
strong man of the Terrace team
when they played at Rupert last
month. If he is a good batter
he will add materially to the
chances of the New Hazelton
team.
The last game of the schedule
will be played at New Hazelton
on August 1, The standing of
the teams follows;

The development of mineral
resources is not to be promoted
by petty restrictions imposed on
the prospector from time to time.
No man plays a more important
part in mining development than
the promoter or financial organiser of legitimate mining enterprises. He is the best friend of
the prospector, the mining engineer and metallurgist, the investor, the workers for whose
services his plans provide remunerative employment, the. manufacturer whose demands for raw
material are supplied as the result of his work, or who seeks a
market for the mining and electrical machinery he produces,
the whole community benefits by
his power of organization.
