THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER IN NORTHERN BRITISH OTUMBjfA
VOL. Ill, NO. 46
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY 18, 1914
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
RAILWAY TO
THEJUKON
Member Believes Line From
G. T. P. to Northern Territory is Assured
Railway communication between Northern British Columbia, the Yukon and Alaska will
inevitably follow the completion
of the Canadian Northern Pacific and the operation of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railways, in the
opinion of Dr. Alfred Thompson,
M. P. for the Yukon, who is on
his way back to the north after
attending the session of the
Dominion house.
"The next great railway to be
constructed in Canada," he predicts, "will be from a point on
the Grand Trunk Pacific in British Columbia through the northern part of the province and the
Yukon to connect with a system
which is to be built by the United
States government in Alaska.
This will open up a vast territory
in Northern British Columbia
and Southern Yukon, and give
railway communication from Sydney, C. B., to the boundary line
of the Yukon on the 141st meridian west, making it possible to
take a train in Vancouver and
ride to the shores of BehringSea,
This will make an empire tributary to the cities of British Columbia, and I have no doubt that
the greatest amount of this trade
will come to Vancouver.
"This is not a visionary project," Dr. Thompson added.
"Hon. Franklin K. Lane, secretary of state at Washington, has
signified his willingness to construct a branch of the Alaskan
system to the Yukon boundary,
and Sir Richard McBride, is, I
understand, very willing to have
government co-operate with the
Federal government in building
the British Columbia section.
When the time is ripe I believe
that I can get the Dominion government to build the Yukon section. So that the big railway
project is not a remote possibility
by any means."
Discussing the great agricultural possibilities of the Yukon,
Dr. Thompson referred to the
fact that the Province of Vologda, in European Russia, which
was in the same latitude, supported a population of 1,600,000
by agricultural production.
The gold production in the
Yukon this year was estimated
by the member at $6,000,000.
The opinion was expressed that
the plans of the United States to
spend $35,000,000 in building
1000 miles of railway in Alaska
would no doubt give a big impetus to trade in the Yukon
Territory as well.
R. S. Sargent has purchased
the entire stock of Chettleburgh
& Sinclair, at Hazelton, South
Hazelton and Telkwa. Included
are a gasoline engine, farm machinery, wagons, sleighs, buggies, harness, saddles, etc., in
great variety.
A. McNeil arrived from Fort
Fraser yesterday.
Placed Blame on
Officer of Storstad
Quebec, July 13:���The collier
Storstad is held to blame for the
Empress of Ireland disaster, in
the findings of the wreck com-
mision. The commission holds
that the disaster was due to the
Stor-stad's change of course ordered by the third officer, without instructions from the first
officer, who was in charge of the
collier at the time. The Empress
was sunk in the St. Lawrence
River on May 29 with a loss of
more than 1000 lives.
Taking up the question of
blame the report said:
"We think that Captain Kendall would have better advised if
he had given the Storstad a wider berth and had navigated his
ship so as to have passed the
Storstad at a greater distance
on -his beam than he originally
intended. We do not think, however, that his stopping, which
was done for greater caution, can
be said to have, been an unsea-
manlike act, nor do we consider
his failure to give a wider berth
as a contributory cause of the
disaster."
Dealing with the porting of
the Storstad's helm, the report
says the commission is unable to
accept the view that it was done
to counteract the effect of a
current and as an act of prudent
nevigation.
"We are of the opinion," the
report proceeds, "that Chief Officer Tuftens of the Storstad was
negligent in omitting to call the
captain when the fog was coming
on.
"We can come to no other conclusion than that Tuftens was
wrongand negligentin altering his
course in the fog, as he undoubtedly did, and that he was wrong
and negligent in keeping the
navigation of the vessel in his
own hands, and in failing to call
the captain when he saw the fog
coming on."
GENERAL PICNIC ON 24TH
Arrangements are being made
for holding the annual general
picnic of Hazelton district in the
recreation park at the Hospital
on Friday, July 24. Definite announcement ofthe program will
be made within a day or two.
A large attendance is expected, and those in charge are confident that the success of last
year's picnic will be repeated.
Everyone in the two towns and
neighborhood is requested to
make no engagement that will
conflict with this event.

GOVERNMENT ACTION
NOT DECIDED UPON
Ottawa, July 13:���Lord Mersey, the head of the commission
on the enquiry into the Empress
disaster, is in Ottawa. His report in its entirety will be presented to the government and
thereafter the government will
consider what action it may take
as a result of the findings.
No opinion could be obtained
last night in government circles
as to what the imputation of
blame by the commission will result in. The guilty parties may
be brought up for manslaughter.
The government will consider
the report carefully before making up its mind as to what action
will be taken.
Police Capture Man
Charged With Shooting
On Wednesday evening railway
officials reported to Chief Constable Minty that Sam Morris, a
negro, had shot R. McDonald,
section foreman at Topley, fifty
miles east of Smithers, and that
the criminal, heavily armed, was
making his way westward. The
chief immediately instructed
Constables Fairbairn, Kelly and
Russell, who are stationed along
the line, to proceed to the scene,
at the same time sending special
men to Smithers and other points
to guard the railway and roads.
On Thursday Constables Fairbairn and Russell found that
Morris had left the line at Barrett's siding. They traced him
to Barrett's ranch, where they
arrested him. Yesterday the
prisoner was brought to Hazelton
by Constables Lavery and Hamblin.
It appears that McDonald had
some words with Morris, whe
was one of the section gang.
The latter procured a revolver
and fired a number of shots,
seriously wounding McDonald.
The victim was taken to Prince
Rupert Hospital, where a bullet
was extracted from his chest. He
is not thought to be in serious
danger, unless complications develop,
Morris appeared before Magistrate Hoskins this morning and
was remanded for a week.
Huerta's Executions
Saltillo, Mexico, July 13:--Two
hundred and thirty persons were
reported executed in Mexico City
by Huerta, according to news
from the South received here by
Constitutionalists.
One hundred and seventy of
these were said to have been
put to death in the Federal penitentiary and sixty executed in
the prison of Santiago Tlaltela-
loo. Most of the victims, it is
said, were officials.
TIGERS TO PLAY SMITHERS
The Tigers leave this evening
for Smithers, to play two games
with the ball team of the Valley
town. Smithers was defeated
in both games played at New
Hazelton this week, but will
probably put up a good argument
for the last two games of the
series. Hazelton has one of the
best teams in its history, and the
boys are. confident of winning.
The line-up will be as follows:
G. G. Rock c; E. Pike p; J. A.
Macdonald lb; R. J. Rock 2b;
R. C. Sinclair 3b; Doc Rock ss;
E. Lipp lf; W. J. Lynch cf; J.
O'Shea rf; Bert Long, utility.
PUT NO LIMIT
House of Lords Makes Important Amendment to Bill
For Irish Home Rule
Dictator Will Resign
Vera Cruz, July 13:���The report that Huerta intends to resign is confirmed by Roberto
Esteve Ruiz, sub-secretary of
foreign affairs, on his arrival in
Mexico City.
It has not been decided when
he will take this step, but that he
has decided to do this is certain.
He will probably await the action
of the mediators before anything
is done.
London. July 13:���The House of
Lords, in committee on the bill
to amend the Government of Ireland Bill, made large changes in
the measure, eliminating the
time limit arid providing that exclusion shall apply to Ulster as a
province. A concession was
made by the Marquis of Crewe,
the government leader, on an
amendment moved by Viscount
Middleton on the sub-section,
which sub-section provides that
the power of the King in the ex-
eluded area shall be exercised by
a secretary of state instead of
the lord lieutenant, in order to
avoid any possibility of influence
from Dublin.
The amendment moved by
Lord Lansdowne, providing for
the exclusion of Ulster from Home
Rule without limit, was adopted
by 138 to 39.
London, July 14:���Premier Asquith has announced in the house
of commons that the Irish
amending bill will be dealt with
before the commons adjourn.
The new session will begin in
the early part of the winter, but
Premier Asquith has offered no
information as to the probable
duration of the present session,
but many people say it will end
sometime in August.
The recognition of danger is
inherent in the existence of two
armed volunteer bodies and has
imbued Irishmen since they realize their added responsibility.
The Battle of Boyne was commemorated yesterday with tremendous enthusiasm which was
more noticable by the absence of
disorder than on past occasions.
Following the custom, a great
procession marched to Belfast
and Drumbeg, where Sir Edward
Carson made the now familiar
speech of defying the government to either totally exclude
Ulster from home rule or cc me to
fight.
Larne, Ireland, July 13:���"If
it is not to be peace with honor,
it must be war with honor," said
Sir Edward Carson, the Ulster
Unionist leader, in addressing
the Central Antrim volunteers
here.   "There is no alternative."
Sir Edward said the Ulsterites
were not aggressive, but they had
told the government that they
would never submit to being turned out of the Imperial Parliament,
and by that decision they would
stand. They would win or go
down together, but there would
be no drawing back. As to the
immediate future, the Ulster
leader could see no evidence of
peace.
Stuart J. Martin, provincial assayer, has reopened his laboratory at the corner of Field and
Wrinch streets.

While making steady progress in mining development, Oniineca
division is just about holding i'-s own in the prospecting branch of
the mining industry, ln this respect it is more favored than the
other mining districts of the province, there being a general complaint of a tailing off in prospecting activity. Whatever may be
the cause of this condition, it is of serious consequence to the future
of mining and to the prosperity of the province, and consideration [
ofthe situation by the provincial government may well be demanded by the people of the mining districts.
The Miner has previously suggested an extension of thi' activities of the field staff of tin- mines department, and lhe government
has already taken action which will lend to improve the service
given hy the provincial mineralogist and his assistants, but we believe the administration must further extend its system of examination and reporting before the department reaches the point
where it will be of the greatest benefit to the mining industry.

development of our mining claims must be encouraged in every i ^er_ Qe ^_ jan(j
way possible and much can be done by the government without
great expense to the provincial treasury. A suggestion made by
the Chalcopyrite is worthy of serious consideration. Our Skeena
Crossing contemporary advocates the establishment of a government assay ollice, at which prospectors may have their samples
tested free of charge, each free miner's certificate carrying a number of assay coupons. A provincial assay office in Prince Rupert,
to which the prospectors of Northern British Columbia might send
their samples for analysis without charge, or on payment of nominal fees, would be a step in the right direction, and wou|d infallibly
benelit the mining industry. We trust the proposal will receive
consideration.

Opportunity's Reply.
They do me wrong   who say I
come no more
When once I knock and fail to
find you in,
For every day I stand outside
your door
And  bid  you  wake, and  rise
>        and fight and win.
Wail  not for  precious  chances
passed away;
Weep not  for golden ages on
the wane.
Each night 1 burn the records of
the day;
At sunrise  every soul is born
again.
Laugh like a boy at splendors
that have sped;
To vanished joys be blind and
deaf and dumb.
My judgments seal the dead past
with its dead,
But never bind a moment yet
to come.

On the last day of a trip across
Central British Columbia,   Hon.
W. J. Bowser and  Hon.   W.   R.
Ross passed through Hazelton on
Will   lie  in   Hazelton   from  j  Saturday.    The attorney-general
June lti until further notice.   |Ln(j  tne  minister of lands had
I  left  Edmonton  on  the   Sunday
evening previous, and spent the
entire week crossing the province.
Their object  was  to   meet  the
people and to inquire into the individual   needs   of   various districts.     Holding a meeting   on
Monday night in the  new  divisional  town   of   McBride,    they
came   on   Tuesday,   at  noon, to
Prince George, and until late on
Wednesday night were entertained by the citizens of that  place,
and of the adjoining  townsites
of South Fort George and  Central Fort George.   The particular
question taken up by  the ministers was the request for incorporation, which first came last winter from South Fort George. Mr.
Bowser assured a meeting in that
townsite that what he wished to
see,   and   what the government
j j would assist, was a new  city  to
I | embrace the three Georges,   and
he suggested that,  the  name be
compromised to "George."    Accompanying   the   party   across
British Columbia was H. H. Hansard,   general solicitor   for  the
Grand Trunk Pacific.    Mr. Bowser and Mr.   Hansard  discussed
the whole question with  a joint
citizens'  committee,  and,   as   a
result, special legislation will be
submitted at the next session of
the legislature to render incorporation of the new town effective.     First  election   in  George
will probably therefore occur in
March.     In  the  meantime the
government  will  send  in   engi
neers and other ofiicials to ad
vise with the citizens regarding
necessary improvements.
Coming west, meetings were
held at Vanderhoof, Fort Fraser
and Smithers.
It was nearly 6 o'clock on Saturday evening when the party
reached Prince Rupert, where a
very successful meeting was held
in the evening.
The outstanding feature of the
trip was the promise of both
ministers to urge the government
to inaugurate a policy of opening
new trails and roads for actual
settlers. Through Skeena constituency the visitors were introduced by Wm. Manson, M. P. P.,
who met the party at Fort George.
Mr. Manson and Mr. Bowser
were frequently in consultation
regarding the particular improvements needed.
