ALL IS QUIET
ALONG LINE
Majority of Striking Construction Workers Have Departed for Other Fields.
NO DISORDER OF ANY RIND
I. W. W. Fails to Hold Striken, in District���Station Men and Bridge Workers
Continue Working and Grading Crews
Being Gradually Recruited.
The strike of construction
workers on this section of the G.
T. F. is proceeding very quietly.
Of the 2772 men on the payrolls
before the calling of the strike,
some 1400 have left the district
by way of Prince Rupert, many
of them, it is reported, being
bound for the harvest fields of
the prairie provinces, where men
are in demand. Of those remaining in the district, a number have
returned to work, the I. VV. W.
organizers being unable to maintain control over all who left the
camps.
The contractors have brought
several parties of men from the
coast and claim that work will
soon be resumed with full crews.
Station men all remain at work,
while the bridge crews are being
kept at full strength.
Chief Constable Wynn, who
has kept close watch on the situation, has had not the slightest
trouble in maintaining order with
his regular force, and there is apparently no cause to expect any
outbreak of lawlessness. Reports that strikers were armed
and threatening trouble, which
have appeared in outside newspapers, are entirely without
foundation.
Doubletracking C. P. R.
Winnipeg: The Canadian
Pacific has issued orders for
the doubletracking of the line
between Ruby Creek and Hammond in British Columbia. The
fifty-seven miles will cost about
$3,000,000.
Full Board Will
Consider Location
The plans for the location of
the railway station at South Hazelton, which are in the hands of
the board of railway commissioners, will probably be dealt
with next week. The full board
was not present at the sittings
held last week in Vancouver,
hence the matter was not taken
up. The commissioners are now
on their way to Ottawa, and it is
expected that this matter, which
is of such importance to the people of Hazelton, will be one of
the first to be dealt with. Officials of the railway company express every confidence in the acceptance of the plans.
PREDICTS A GREAT
FUTUREJOR DISTRICT
Expert, After Examining Mineral
Resources of Omineca, is Very
Optimistic.
COURTS WILL DECIDE
Government Seeks to  Compel   G. T. P.
to Assume Responsibility.
Ottawa, Aug. 1: It is probable the courts will decide the
dispute between the government
and the G. T. P. in connection
with the taking over of the completed section of the railway between Winnipeg and Lake
Superior .Junction, which the
company is saitl to be operating
as contractors, in order to avoid
coming under the jurisdiction of
the railway board. The railway
claims to be within its rights in
so operating compelled sections
and doubt is expressed as to
whether il can be compelled to
become absolutely responsible for
the operation of any section until all are completed. The decision will rest with the courts.
Government May Operate
Winnipeg, Aug. 1: That the
government would operate the
completed section of the Transcontinental, with a view to assisting in moving the fall crop, if the
G. T. P. persisted in refusing to
take the section over on an operating basis, was the statement
made by Hon. Robert Rogers to
a deputation from the Transcona
board of trade taday.
WIDENING FIELD OF MINING
ACTIVITY IN THIS DISTRICT
Discoveries and Developments of Week Add
to Certainty that Hazelton is Center of
Greatest New Mineral Area of Recent
Years���Much Prospecting in Progress.
Typhoid at Ottawa
Ottawa: This city is experiencing a typhoid epidemic of
alarming proportions. Five hundred and twenty-five cases have
been reported to the authorities,
and the number is largely increasing.
The most optimistic estimates
of the size of the rich ore body
in the Silver Standard workings
are confirmed by the results of
this week's work. At a depth
of 160 feet in the shaft, drifts
were started to the north and
south along the vein. The south
drift, a few feet from the shaft,
shows nine feet of the bonanza
ore which has attracted so much
attention. The Silver Standard
is, without question, one of the
big mines of the province.
owned by Harris Bros, and Mullen. There is good reason to believe that the big lead of the
Silver Standard continues
through this property, and an
ore showing uncovered the other
day leads the owners to  believe
i they have in these three claims a
I valuable property.
Second Murder in
Police Graft Case
University Senate Election
<S|ee'i'i;ei lee Tiee. Miner)
Victoria, Aug. 3: There will
be seventy candidates for election
to the senate of British Columbia
University, for which nominations closed on Wednesday,
Balloting is by mail, and closes
August 19. Ballots mailed after
that date will not be accepted.
There are only two nominations
for the oiliee of chancellor, these
being Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper
��nd F. C. Carter-Cotton.
Like all other visitors competent to judge, F. J. Crossland,
who recently investigated the
mining possibilities of this district, is enthusiastic concerning
our mineral resources. Mr.
Crossland, who represents English capital, had much to say
about Omineca district on his return to Vancouver.
'After an exhaustive examination of the different mineral occurrences," said Mr. Crossland,
"I feel convinced that the
country as a whole has a great
future. The mining industry
is only in its infancy, though
in several isolated cases sufficient
actual mining has been done to
prove that the ores are deep
seated. Particularly is this the
ease in the Silver Standard mine,
which has passed the prospective'
stage, and has a wonderful
amount of ore on the dump, as
well as large bodies blocked out
under ground. The silver-lead
ores occurring in this zone shows
remarkably high values, and with
the advent of the railroad there
will be no transportation difficulties which cannot be easily overcome. There is every evidence to
prove that this district will have
a long life as a mining section.
"I went from Hazelton to Hudson Bay mountain, eighty-five
miles, in a south-easterly direction through Pleasant valley to
Silver lake, and from there to
Francois lake. Though primarily
out on mining business, I could
not but be impressed by the farming possibilities of the latter location. I saw farmers there who
are making good in every sense
of the word, the soil, climatic
conditions and ease of putting
their farms into the productive
stage being such that a man
must see it to realize the ease
with which these northern farmers place their farms on a paying
basis."
On the Rocher de Boule the
main drift is nearing the big ore
shoot, which is 400 feet long,
averaging 5 1-2 feet in width.
This ore carries 19 1-2 per cent
copper, with some gold and silver.
The government wagon road is
being constructed to the site of
the power plant, six miles from
the bridge, while the company is
improving the sleighroad from
the mine to the wagon road.
Negotiations are in progress for
the construction of a siding for
the shipment of ore.
Preacher Meets Death
Revelstoke, Aug. 2: Rev. C.
Davis, a Presbyterian minister,
who only recently graduated
from Manitoba College, was
killed here today, being struck by
a logging train.
The latest mineral discovery,
and one which is likely to prove
of some importance, is reported
by J. T. Bates and Gus Olson,
who have been prospecting in the
Omineca river district. They
brought to town samples of asbestos, of excellent quality and good
length of fibre, from a showing
discovered by them on an unmapped tributary of the Omineca,
seventeen miles northeast of
Bulkley House, at the head of
Tacla lake. The ledge, which
outcrops on the steep bank of the
river, is apparently five feet wide,
in serpentine. Running with the
vein is a large dike of peculiar
appearance, The discoverers
intend to prospect the ground
thoroughly.
Harris Bros., John Mullen, and
D. J. Comeauhavea very promising group of six claims, situated
back of Sealey and one mile from
the railway. Mr. Comeau, who
has been prospecting the ground,
brought some fine-looking ore to
town during the week. Although
it is not certain that the showing
is in place, there is solid ore
three feel wide, carrying values
of $64 to the ton. There is 17
per cent, copper, while the arsenical iron ore which is found
higher up on the lead, carrying
11 per cent, copper, contains
sufficient gold ($26) to bring its
value up to the same figure.
Native copper is sprinkled
through the ore.
From Granite basin, on the
Thirty-mile fork of the Bear
river, Fred Hagen has brought
in large specimens of fine-looking
silver-lead ore. This showing is
in a new and promising section
of the district.
Arthur Leverette, Ed. Kohse
and Peter Enoch have resumed
work on the Ingineca group, on
Rocher de Boule mountain, and
hope to expose an enlarged ore
body.
J. S. Cline has returned to the
Silver Pick, where he has now a
njee showing of high grade
silver-lead ore. Samples just assayed returned values up to $160.
W. P. I). Pemberton has returned from Victoria and will
shortly leave for the Babines,
where Paddy Higgins, who is
associated with him in the ownership of the St. Eugene group of
eight claims, is engaged in opening up the silver-lead showings
on the property, which is located
near James Cronin's claims, The
owners will also prospect the
Silver Cup group, located near
the St. Eugene.
John McPherson, formerly
manager of the Hudson's Bay
post at Babine, who is now engaged in mining in that vicinity
arrived yesterday with samples
of silver-lead ore which indicate
that the Oversight group, on
which he is working, is a property of considerable promise.
New York, July 31:��� James
Verrella betrayed Dago Frank,
one of the members of the gang
who killed Herman Rosenthal,
the informer in the police graft
cases. Today Verrella met the
same fate, being murdered by
other members of the gang. The
amount of money included in the
police graft during the last year
is estimated at $2,400,000.

Telegraph Troubles
Forest fires on the lower river
river have demoralized the
branch telegraph line to Prince
Rupert during the week. In the
north, cloudbursts were responsible for washouts which destroyed
miles of line near Selwyn, Y. T.,
and frequent interruptions to
communication in the south have
: combined to harass the local telegraph stalf. All lines are in
working   order    this   morning,

The people of the Bulkley valley have combined for the purpose of holding an exhibition of
Valley products, with which will
be associated other attractive
features. At a meeting of the
newly-organized Bulkley Valley
Agricultural Association, the
date of the first annual fair was
set for the third week in September. It is proposed to have
classes for horses, stock, grain, i
vegetables, and a number of com-'
petitions interesting to housewives. A committee is at work
arranging details and as soon as
possible the prize list will be published.
Guy Farrow is president of the'
association, and T.J. Thorp is
secretary. Settlers in the dis-
trict realize that the success of j
the fair depends upon them, and
are taking an active interest in
the organization. The member- j
ship of the association is steadily
increasing and now numbers
some sixty. As the laudable
purpose of the new body becomes
better known, it is to be expected
that everyone interested in the
welfare of the Valley will take
an active interest in the fair,
which should become the great
annual event of the district.
METHODISTS COMING
Annual Meeting of Port Simpson District
Here Next Week
Hazelton's claim to recognition as a central point is recognized by the Methodists of the
Port Simpson District, who will
hold their annual financial meeting here on Tuesday next. The
day will be devoted to business, under the presidency of
Rev. G. H. Raley, of Port Simpson, president of the British
Columbia Methodist Conference.
In the evening a public reception will be held in the rooms
over Adams' drug store. There
will be a program of entertainment, including addresses from
the local ministers and other representative men. The public is
cordially invited to attend.
On Wednesday the visiting representatives will pay a visit to
Kispiox, upon the invitation of
Rev. R. VV. Lee.
Winston Churchill, first lord
of the admiralty, in introducing
in the House of Commons the
supplementary naval estimates
the other day, said that the
direct cause of these additiontil
estimates was the German law,
which he proceeded to examii e
in detail. Its main feature, he
said, was the increase in the
striking force of ships of all
classes immediately available and
its general effect was the maintenance of four-fifths of the German navy in full permanent
commission. This meant that it
was constantly and instantly
ready for war. Such preparation
was remarkable and so far as he
was aware found no example in
the previous practice of modern
naval powers.
Alleged Secret Shipbuilding
London, Aug. 1:���There is a
feeling of grave concern throughout Great Britain, owing to the
general belief that Germany is
preparing for eventualities. The
London Express prints the report
that Germany is building, in secret, an additional battle squadron which will add nine ships to
the published number. This, if
true, would place Germany's navy
ahead of Great Britain's minimum by the year 1914. This is
the gravest peril Britain has ever
faced, the Express declares.
Maintain Empire, Says Borden
London, Aug. 1:--The Canadian
ministers today attended a meeting of the Imperial Defence committee, where the general naval
situation was again" discussed.
Earlier in the day Mr. Borden
addressed the Canadian Club.
The Canadian premier spoke on
Imperial topics, but made no definite announcements. While the
Empire is, perhaps, not all that
it might be for certain purposes,
he said, yet. unorganized as it is
in some respects, it has proved
itself a mighty force in time of
need and danger. Speaking of
Canada, the premier said the
greatness of the Dominion cannot rest alone on material considerations. He was glad to say
that even in the most rapidly advanced portions of Canada the
schoolhouse was the most conspicuous building. He believed
the mission of the Canadian
ministers would be to the advantage of the mother country.
Entertained by the worshipful
company of leather sellers on
Wednesday night, Mr. Borden
said the naval conference had
been conducted in the best spirit
of good will and would be of
mutual benefit to all parts of the
Empire. Canadians were determined that the Empire should be
maintained and that open paths
across the seas should be securely
kept.
Mackenzie's View
Quebec, Aug. I: Sir William
Mackenzie, who. returned today
from England, where he spent
the last month, declares he is
convinced there is more back of
the present war talk than many
realize. Canada, he says, should
be prepared to act quickly in defence of the Empire. i:iiE OMiNEUA MiNiilR, SAl'UUMy, AUGUST 8, Iflifc

Sir Richard McBride Tells of Remarkable Development and
Great Resources.
Vol. I.
Saturday, August .3, 1912.
No. 49.
That the manifold evidences of
progress to be seen in the district tributary to Hazelton, and
the undoubted wealth of natural
resources in the Northern Interior made an impression on the
premier during his recent visit to
Hazelton, is quite evident from
his utterances since his return to
the capital. In an interview
published in the Colonist, Sir
Richard said:
"To sum up, there can be no|
doubt of this with regard to the |
mining country, that it is still!
barely prospected. The mines at:
present in operation and those
projected in the vicinity of Ha- j
Mining is the only industry of importance in which it is possible
to gain wealth which does not come out of the pockets of others.
The profits of legitimate mining have been aptly called "The cleanest money in lhe world." My the exercise of ingenuity, skill and
pluck, the milling operator extracts from the rocks the treasure
stored up by nature in bygone ages, ami adds it to the wealth of the
nations; giving lucrative employment to many thousands engaged
in extracting ami reducing the ores, and providing the materials
required in hundreds of industries.
To those who know of mining only through the operations and
advertisements of stockjobbing concerns, it may appear that the
industry is one of a highly speculative nature. This is not the case.
In legitimate mining that is, where the same judgment, ability
and energy are exercised as would be necessary in the successful
conduct of any other business there are fewer failures, in proportion, than in many industries which are generally regarded as of a
more stable character.
It is, perhaps, inevitable that an attractive and profitable business like mining should beget speculative enterprises in which the
money of the investor is frequently swallowed up. Even in mining
speculation, however, the investor has excellent chances of profit,
provided lie follows the simple rule which The Miner has more than
once suggested, that is, to make certain that the men to whom he
entrusts his money are of proven integrity, business ability, and
experience in mining. Should the investor contemplate the purchase of stock, let him make certain that the property has merit,
is not over-capitalized, and that the proportion of shares set aside
for the development of the property is of reasonable sufficiency.
Having satisfied himself upon these points, the investor may reasonably look for large returns.
In all the world there is no more attractive field for mining investment today than the district tributary to Hazelton. A
majority of the properties upon which development work has been
done are proving of great value, while several have already reached j Groundhog district,

KITSELAS A GOOD
MINERAL DISTRICT
Hydraulic Plant Now in Operation on Gold Creek���Other
News of the District.
Kitselas, July 31:���The Cassiar
Hydraulic Mining Co. which has
just completed the installation of
a high power hydraulic plant on
Gold Creek, near Kitselas, has
commenced operations. The
surface indications are exceptionally rich and good prospects have
been obtained. Everyone connected with the mine is extremely optimistic as to the eventual results. Placer mining has
been conducted in a small way
along Gold Creek in the past, and
very successfully considering the
crude methods used at the time.
One miner discovered some time
ago along this creek a nugget
worth, it is said, twenty two dollars and a couple of miners not
long since cleaned up between
seven and eight hundred dollars
in a very short time with the
most obsolete of arrangements,
The Cassiar Mining Co. are operating an area of about five million
cubic yards. The plant installed
is callable of developing over one
hundred horsepower, much more
in fact than will be actually
necessary, as the ground to be
washed out is largely made up
of moderately coarse gravel and
sand.
The entire district surrounding
Kitselas is very rich in minerals
including gold, silver and copper.
The great drawback in the past
has been the lack of proper transportation facilities, but there
is little doubt that in the near
future Kitselas district will be
the centre of some very important mining operations.
A. R. MacDonald, oneof Kitselas' oldest citizens, left for Prince
Rupert today.
Mr. ancl Mrs. McGubbin, who
have been staying in town for
the last few weeks left on Monday for Nichol, where they will
reside in future.
George Kerr, the divisional lire
warden, has returned after an
extended official visit to Hazelton, Aldermere and other points
where he has been investigating
fire conditions.
Rev. L. W. Richardson of Port
Simpson held evening services in

The following article on the
Northern Interior is from the pen
of Thomas E. Hankin, than whom
no one is better qualified to write,
from the personal knowledge, of
the region lying north of Hazelton:
In speaking of the wonderland
of the north, one would require
to be a master of the English
language to do justice to the
wonderful and unlimited resources which the country offers
to the prospector, the land
seeker, the investor. The great
stretch of country lying between
Omineca and Dease lake, known
as the Cassiar goldfields is, of
course, practically unexplored.
Now that the northern portion of
British Columbia is coming to be
, known, however, prospectors will
undoubtedly turn their attention
to that part of the province and
those who have the energy and
: pluck to venture forth as pioneers
and direct their efforts intelligently will soon be able to say
| that their time and money were
well invested.
As to game, which is an im-i
portant   consideration   with  the
pioneer prospector, all the differ-;
ent species native to the country i
are to be found in large numbers
I in the northern interior.    Moose,
: cariboo, bighorn sheep, mountain ;
i goats and several species of bear
can   be found throughout   the
country���  a   most valuable re-
I source to the explorer.    Small
game also is  plentiful  and,   in!
some parts, trout and salmon can
be had.
The climate, to say the least,
could not be bettered.
The immensity of the district i
is unknown, save to a very  few.
Years could be spent in exploring
the country  before it could be'
known in its entirety, so vast is '
its extent.    Three of the great-'
est rivers in British   Columbia
take their   rise in  the   district
north of  Hazelton,   the Stikine j
being the  longest of the three, i
Its waters divide with the Skeena,
heretofore the great highway to
Hazelton.     First of all,   let  us
follow    this   noble   river,    the
mighty Stikine, with its wonder-:
ful valleys,  its towering mountains, and its far-reaching grassy
slopes,    For days we may follow
the river and find the roar of its j
foaming waters excluding every |
other sound from'our ears. Then [
again the traveler emerges upon
a scene so peaceful and fair that
it is hard to realize he is still fol-:
lowing down the Stikine valley,
which seemed so tortuous but a.
day before.    The country,  generally speaking, is easy to travel
over with pack  horses,  with an
abundance   of excellent forage
grasses everywhere.
Returning to the headwaters
of the Skeena, which divides with
the   Stikine,  we find the first1
fifty or sixty miles of the river:
flowing through the Groundhog
coal fields, in a country of unsur- i
passed    beauty,    with    great
stretches of open grassy country
���the green grass here and there
interspersed with masses of gorgeous wildflowers- where large I
and small game can  be seen at j
almost any time.   As the Skeena!
is   followed down towards Ha-!
zelton, the valley becomes  more
heavily timbered, the trees being
principally spruce of good size
and quality, with balsam fir and
some black   pine of  fair  size.
Through the timbered valley we
travel  to the confluence of the
Chemax (Big Water), commonly
known as the Bear river, and the
Skeena. From this point to Hazelton the country is somewhat
rougher in character, the mountains, which are becoming noted
for discoveries of valuable mineral, being more precipitous.
At a point about 120 miles
above Hazelton, the Skeena
rushes through the Grand Canyon, twenty miles in length, and
regarded as impassable, although
Mob McDonald, in a desperate
effort to reach Hazelton with his
dying partner, John Blume,
brought a canoe through it last
fall. The Indians of the river
thought the task hopeless, but
one, named David Mowat, agreed
to act as pilot. After almost incredible exertions, ihey were successful in negotiating the canyon,
below which they found thirty
miles of placid water, bringing
them to the government telegraph trail. The sick man was
brought to Hazelton hospital and
every care was given him, but he
finally succumbed to the hardships experienced in a year of
strenuous exploring.
From Fourth Cabin, on the
Yukon telegraph line, the Skeena
runs through a mountainous
country to the old Indian village
known as Kuldo, once the home
of a powerful tribe which is now
almost extinct, the few remaining natives of the clan having
been assimilated by other river
tribes. Their disappearance was
due to their warlike disposition,
which continually embroiled them
with the fighting tribes of the
Naas and Stikine. In a war
with the Naas Indians, some fifty
years ago, the Kuldo tribe was
practically annihilated, only the
few who happened to be out in
the hills escaping. On their return
the few survivors found their
homes in ashes. Joining with the
Kispiox and Kisgegash Indians,
they crossed to the Naas and
raided the villages of their conquerors, wreaking a terrible vengeance..
Contrary to some eminent
authorities, scalping was a com
mon practice before the advent
of the Whites, and several scalps,
souvenirs of the last raid, are in
evidence in Kispiox to this day.
Torture of every description was
resorted to, and slaves captured
from the Naas were mutilated in
an indescribable manner by the
Kuldos on their triumphant return from the Nsas. Slavery
was an established condition. All
captives who lived to reach the
Skeena were held as slaves, then
position being lower than that
of the camp dogs. Their lives
were considered valueless, and at
a tribal dance the sacrifice of at
least one slave was considered
necessary. In some villages,
when totem poles were erected,
slaves were sacrificed and buried
at the base of the poles,

Important Gathering of Scientific Experts to be Held in
Toronto Next Year.
SOME WILL COME HERE
Party of Delegates Will Visit Hazelton
After Close of Congress���Coming of
Specialists in Geology and Mining
Means Much to Canada.
The announcement that a large
party of geologists, who will attend the International Geological
Congress in Toronto next year,
will visit Hazelton upon the close
of the session, is of considerable
interest to the people of this district, and especially to those
interested in mining. Men of
high rank in a science upon
which mining greatly depends,
coming from many parts of the
world, their visit to this district
will not only prove interesting to
them, but will also result in a
wider knowledge of the great
mineral resources of Omineca
district.
Since the first meeting of the
Geological Congress in Paris in
1878, meetings have been held in
Italy, Germany, England, United
States, Switzerland, Russia, Austria, Mexico, and Sweden. At
the last Congress held in Stockholm in 1910 there was an attendance of 850 and it is expected
that this number will be exceeded
at the twelfth Congress which
will be held in Toronto in August of next year.
As already announced, an extensive series of excursions are
being arranged to illustrate the
typical geology and mineral resources of Canada. The excursions will take place during August and September of next year
and will extend from Cape Breton
and Halifax to Vancouver. Victoria and Prince Rupert and Hazelton on the Pacific, and from
Niagara Falls to Dawson City.
Geologists from every quarter of
of the globe will attend the Congress, and for many it will be
their first visit to Canada. They
will include professors from the
leading universities and mining
schools, officers of the various
government geological surveys
and mining departments, and
geologists and mining engineers
in private practice.
"The value of the annual mineral output of Canada," writes
Mr. W. S. Lecky, secretary to the
executive committee, "has steadily increased year by year for the
last thirty years and is now over
one hundred million dollars.
Considering, however, the known
resources, and the enormous territory whose resources, are unknown, this output is small, and
Canada needs more men and
more money for prospecting, development and operation. This
she can best secure by attracting
not the general public, but those
people whose business it is to engage in such industries and who
understand their management.
"Geologists and mining engineers' are obviously those best
able to influence opinion in their
own countries on the subject, in
which they are recognized authorities; hence the opportunity
afforded by the meeting in Canada of so many eminent specialists
should not be neglected. Every
effort should be made to show to
the world that while our known
mineral resources are large, we
have an immense undeveloped
territory awaiting the advent of
the trained prospector.
' 'Meetings of various geological
and other scientific societies have
been held in Canada in the past,
but this will be the first occasion
on which the International Geological Congress has met in the
Dominion and the opportunity
will not occur again for many
0 years, since the meetings are held
triennially     in    the     different
countries of the world.
"Canadian geologists are fully
alive to the high honor paid them
and their country by the selection
of Canada for the' meeting and
they are being generously
assisted in preparing for it by the
Dominion and provincial governments and by the railway and
mining corporations, as well as
by individual business and professional men, all of whom 'are
contributing liberally both money
and time."
NEW ATLANTIC SERVICE
Premier Borden May Arrange for Faster
Steamers to Canada
Ottawa, July 27:���It is believed
that during his visit to England
Premier Borden will take up a
new question, that of a fast Atlantic service. The fact that the
contract has been renewed but
temporarily is taken as an indication that something on an improved scale is contemplated.
Some time ago there were rumors
that such an agreement was
being negotiated with the Canadian Pacific on the basis of a
greater increased subsidy, but at
the time this was denied by Mr.
Borden. At the existing contract expiration, however, the
subject will be very much to the
front and will be carefully looked into and following the Premier's trip to England, some developments may be expected.
Whether the increased subsidy
would be granted toone company
or divided among several as has
been advocated is a question to
be determined. It has furthermore been suggested that the
ships be of a cruiser type, but it
is stated here that the whole
question has as yet reached no
definite form.
Railways to Appeal
Ottawa, July 29:���The railway
commission has been notified that
theC.P.R., G. T. P. and C.N.R.
would make a joint application
for leave to appeal to the supreme
court certain sections of the
order issued by the board some
weeks ago in regard to the
matter of guarding against fires
along the lines in British Columbia.
The railways dispute the jurisdiction of the board in the matter and ask for a reference to
the supreme court.
The application will be argued
for the railways at the first
general sitting of the board in
Ottawa.
Upper Fraser Steamers
The upper Fraser river steamship service was inaugurated a
few days ago, when the new
steamer of the British Columbia
Express company, the B. C. Express, left Fort George on her
maiden trip to the Grand Canyon.
The new craft, which arrived at
Fort George from Quesnel in
charge of Captain Bucey, is a
compact little boat, about ten
feet shorter than the company's
other steamer, B. X., but
possessed of greater power for
bucking the swifter waters of
the upper Fraser. Her captain
is an experienced navigator from
the Skeena river.
Worth Sending For
A series of convenient blotters- the famous Barkley Giils
will be sent free to every miner,
prospector and farmer sending
his name and address to C. H.
Handasyde, Jr., manufacturers'
agent, PrinceRupert. Mr. Handasyde, who handles every description of machinery and appliances for mining and prospecting,
as well as a complete 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
above, stating the particular line
of goods in which they are interested. 52
