THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER IN NORTHERN BRITISH COL
VOL. II, NO. 5
HAZELTON, B. C. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1912

THE POLL TAX
Premier McBride Announces
Important Changes In Provincial Taxation System
PEnPARING FOR SESSION
Provincial Parliament Which Meets In
January Will Deal with Much Important Legislation Settlement of Lands���
Progress of Railway Construction
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, Oct. 3:���The announcement that the three-dollar,
poll tax will be abolished when
the legislature meets in January,
and that important reductions in
personal and real property taxation will also be made at the approaching session of the provincial house, was made today by
Sir Richard McBride. The premier came to Vancouver with the
Duke of Connaught and party,
all attending the New Westminster fair, which the governor-
general formally opened.
True to its principle of assisting in the improvement of economic and industrial conditions
throughout the province, Sir
Richard said, the government
holds the view that all revenue
necessary to carry on the business of the government should
be derived from natural resources,
without recourse to direct taxation.
"In such a young, growing
province, the question of taxation
cannot be solved as rapidly as
we could wish," said the premier,
"but we have an ideal in view
and are steadily working toward
its accomplishment."
Besides taxation matters, other
important legislation will be considered, but to outline the proposed enactments would premature. It is expected that the
municipal commission will present its report which will enable
the house to proceed with the
consolidation of the municipal
legislation. Sessional work is
becoming increasingly heavy,
owing to the rapid development
of the country. The government
expects during the next two
weeks to make announcements
respecting the provincial university and also with regard to" the
labor and agricultural commissions which the administration
has promised to appoint.
The premier stated that reports
received by the government indicate that the past summer has
witnessed a very large settlement
en lands throughout the province,
an augury of greater things next
year.
Sir Donald Mann gives assurance that work on the Canadian
Northern railway will be rushed
to assure completion from sea to
sea in 1914, and the Pacific Great
Eastern will soon be employing
thousands on construction work
Speaking of the royal tour, Sir
Richard said no~>epresentativeof
the Crown was ever more enthusiastically received than the Duke
of Connaught. By their gracious,
yet democratic, ways the Duke,
the Duchess and Princess Patricia
had endeared themselves to
everyone. Returning from New
Westminster, the royal party left
for the east tonight, by special
train.
Big Timber Revenue
Victoria: The September
revenue from timber was $250,-
000. Seven thousand dollars
was paid in (or forest protection.
Notable Visitor
From the Prairies
Among recent prominent visitors to Hazelton is Rev. J. P.
Sargent, Dean of Qu'Appelle,
Saskatchewan, who arrived last
Saturday evening to spend a
week with his son, R. S. Sargent,
the Hazelton merchant. Rev.
Mr. Sargent is one of the pioneer
clergymen of the Canadian West,
having been in Manitoba and
Saskatchewan ahead of the Canadian Pacific railway. He has
seen the development of the
prairie provinces to their present
prosperous condition, and his
opinion that great things are in
store for this district is of considerable weight. At St. Peter's
church on Sunday evening the
reverend gentleman conducted
the services. He will leave for his
home city tomorrow.
EXPRESS SERVICE
IS INAUGURATED
Canadian Express Co. Now
Operating Between Prince
Rupert and South Hazelton
An innovation which will be
well received by the business
men of Hazelton was announced
on Wednesday, when N. J. Ross,
of Winnipeg, superintendent of
the Canadian Express Co., came
up from the coast to arrange an
extension of his company's service to South Hazelton. He was
accompanied by Alfred Scholey,
who will officiate as express
messenger between Prince Rupert and this point.
Mr. Ross, who has supervision
over the district from Port Arthur to Prince Rupert, informed
The Miner that his company was
already operating over the G.T. P.
steamship system on the coast,
and would extend the service on
the railway as various points
were reached by steel. Several
parcels were brought up on Wednesday's train, and the regular
service is now in operation, with
J. E. Beaucamp, station agent at
South Hazelton, as the company's
agent for this point.
Ingineca Men Return
Peter and Chris Jensen, pioneers of the Ingineca placer district and discoverers of McCohnel
creek, have returned from their
season's mining and prospecting
in that district, to spend the
winter in Hazelton. They are
somewhat reticent as to the result of their season's work, but
express confidence in the future
of the district as a profitable
mining center.
Two Ex-Premiers
Vancouver, Oct. 3:��� Two former premiers of Canada are now
in Vancouver. Sir Mackenzie
Bowell arrived today on a visit to
his son, while Sir Charles Tupper,
who continues well and active, is
a resident of the city.
IIT. P. STEEL
HAZELTON STATION SITE
Rails Laid to South Hazelton on Thursday���
Establishment of Depot Will be to Great
Advantage of Town���Development Plans
Are Expected Shortly.
Making good the promise of
Superintendent Mehan, the
Sealey gulch bridge was completed on Monday, and on Thursday the steel was laid to the
South Hazelton station site. Preparations are now being made to
provide depot facilities at the
townsite across the Bulkley, and
within a few days Station Agent
J. E. Beaucamp will be in charge
at the South Hazelton station,
which will be the end of steel, so
far as commercial business and
passenger traffic is concerned,
for some time to come. Work on
the long siding which is to accommodate Hazelton business is
now under way.
The people of Hazelton are,
naturally, elated at eventually
being provided with temporary
station facilities, which will allow
them to transact business here
until "such time as removal to
South Hazelton becomes necessary.   It is the general opinion
that the present town will experience one of the most prosperous winter seasons in its history.   The great amount of work
I incident to the development of
j the new town will entail consid-
j erable     expenditure,      making
plenty of business for the merchants of Hazelton.
It is reported from Ottawa
that the engineers of the railway
board have passed the plans for
the South Hazelton station, and
only the formal approval of the
commissioners is required before
the establishment of permanent
yards and station are undertaken.
A mud slide in a large cut between Sealey and Skeena Crossing may prevent the arrival of
tonight's train at South Hazelton.
A crew of men is working on
the slide.
Refused Million For Silver Standard
Vancouver, Oct. 4:���The announcement is made here today
that the ownei-s of the Silver SUtHdard mineat Hazelton have refused an offer of $1,000,000 for the property. The offer was
made by the Federal Mining Company, which is controlled by the
Rockfellers. The would-be purchasers are the owners of the
largest silver-lead mines in' Idaho. J. W. Stewart and other
owners of the Silver Standard, together with J. L. Retallack, the
noted Slocan mining man, have recently been at Hazelton examining this and other properties.
The church service in the auditorium tomorrow evening will be
conducted by Rev. R. W. Lee,
who will take as the subject for
his sermon "The Originality of
Christ."
A Day Off
Victoria, Oct. 2:���The Duke of
Connaught, Lieutenant-governor
Paterson and others enjoyed a
shooting trip to Moresby Island
today, while the Duchess and
Princess Patricia, with Sir Richard McBride, Sir Donald Mann
and others, visited Shawnigan
Lake and witnessed operations
in a logging camp.
Owen Lake Group
Frank Brown and Lou Woods,
who have a bond on the Owen
Lake group, on Morice river,
have received highly encouraging
returns from the assays of general samples from the tunnels
recently started on three of their
veins. The ore is concentrating,
and the assay values indicate
that the property is of considerable value. On No. 1 vein six
feet of ore carries $44.50 in silver
lead and zinc; No. 2 gives values
of $11 across 5J feet, while from
No. 3 vein, six feet wide, a $21
assay was obtained. There are
excellent- values for large bodies
of concentrating ore. These are
six veins running parrallel, in a
wide porphyry dike. The country
rock is quartzite and andesite.
Work will be continued through
the winter, and as the showings
are rapidly improving, the operators expect to prove a mine before spring.
Solution of Indian Trouble
(Bpeolal iu The Miner)
Victoria, Oct. 4:- It is understood a settlement of the Indian
reserve question, involving the
matter of the reversionary rights
of the province and other issues,
has been reached by the province
and the Dominion. Dr. McKenna, who has been investigating,
will submit to the federal authorities a copy of the proposed agreement. Mutual concessions, it is
said, saved the submission of the
question to the courts.
the season, on the prohibition of
setting fire without a permit,
but conditions for burning slash
are so favorable just now that
the forest officials recommend
the immediate disposal of any
that may have accumulated during the year, permission of course
being first secured from the fire
warden of the district. At the
same time the utmost care should
be taken. Where there is any
danger to timber or buildings, it
is well to make a firebreak. Fire
should be set on the leeward side
so that it may burn against the
wind and where slash on a hillside is set afire it should be in
such a way that it will bnrn
downhill. It will thus burn on
quietly and smolder.
Where there is a large mass of
slash to be disposed of itis always
well to set the torch to it in
several places, in order that it
may burn inwards to the centre
and, even in a wind, can not become a menace to surrounding
timber or dwellings as would be
the case if it were set fire to in
one place and was then caught
by the wind and a sheet uf flame
driven off to one side.
Fire Season Over
Victoria, Sept. 30:���The time
when forest fires occur, officially,
in British Columbia expires Oct.
lst and on that date most of the
wardens will be withdrawn for
the season.
The first of the month will also
see the removal, for the rest of
Important Decision
(Suflclal  lee Tlee' Miner)
Vancouver, Oct. 3:��� The provincial Companies Act is declared
intra vires by Justice Murphy, in
a lengthy decision handed down
yesterday. This is a complete
victory for the province, in the
first stage of an appeal to the
Privy Council by the Deere Plow
Co., a Winnipeg manufacturing
corporation which violated the
act by doing business in the province without being registered as
an extra-provincial company.
Imperial Parliament
London: The House of
Commons, opening on Monday,
will debate on the Titanic disaster, Home Rule debate follows.
Has High Opinion
of Hazelton District
(Specie*! to The Miner)
Vancouver, Oct. 3:���John Fen-
som, a Toronto manufacturer,
has just arrived here from a trip
over the Grand Trunk Pacific
along the Skeena. He gives high
praise to the Hazelton district.
Speaking of agricultural products, he says the vegetables
grown in the vicinity of Hazelton
surpass in excellence specimens
of the same varieties which were
prize-winners at the Canadian
national exhibition at Toronto.
The whole district, he says, will
have a bright future.
Mining Club Expanding
Vancouver, Oct. 3:���At a meeting of the Vancouver Mining
Club last night, it was decided to
start a campaign for a thousand
members.
DEMONSTRATION AT
BELFAST ORDERLY
Ulster Day Passed Without
Anticipated Trouble ��� Thout
sands Sign Covenant
Belfast, Sept. 30:���As a crowning proof of their determination
never to submit to the domination of an Irish parliament on
the lines of the home rule bill,
thousands of Ulsterites, as the
Unionists and Orangemen are
designated, devoted Saturday to
signing the solemn covenant prepared b y the anti-home rule
leaders.
No serious disturbances took
place during the day, although
several minor fights occurred,
but these were soon stopped.
Sir Edward Carson was the
first to sign the covenant, which
pledges him to "use all means
found necessary to defeat the
present conspiracy to set up home
rule in Ireland," and also refuses
to recognizes the authority of an
Irish parliament.
Thousands of the rank and file
of the party signed the convenant
after Sir Edward Carson had done
so. Solemn religious services
were conducted during the signing of the document.
Coronado Ore
Mining men are much interested in the big display of high
grade silver-lead ore brought in
from the Coronado group, on
Hudson Bay mountain, during
Ihe week. The mineral is of very
attractive appearance, and
carries high values.
P. R. Fleming, of Victoria, who
is interested with R. J. McDonell and Jack Halley in the ownership of the mine, is expected to
arrive here next Wednesday.
The owners will pay a visit of inspection to the property, and will
then perfect arrangements for
development. A crew will be
kept at work throughout the
winter, and it is probable that a
new tunnel will be run, to give
considerable depth on the big
ore bodies.
TOREATENED
Combination of Balkan States
to Give Battle to Ottoman
Oppressor
POWERS INTERVENING
Ultimatum Calling for Evacuation of
Macedonia Will be Withheld Until
Monday��� Balkan Armies Being Placed
on War Footing���Fighting on Frontiers
London, Oct. 5: -The Balkan
war cloud looms large and dark.
Incensed by the renewal of Tur
kish atrocities in Macedonia, the
Balkan states have prepared an
ultimatum, demanding the cessation of Turkish military operations within 48 hours and the
evacuation of Macedonia. The
prompt intervention of the Powers has resulted in the ultimatum
being withheld until Monday, but
the Balkan nations are, with the
exception of Roumania, engaged
in placing their armies on a war
footing.
Numerous clashes between
Turkish forces and Bulgarian and
Servian troops are already reported.
Bulgaria's Stand
Sofia, Bulgaria, Oct. 3:���Regarding the Bulgarian war declaration against Turkey, a
cabinet minister says that while
every member of the government
advocates peace, yet systematic
provocation by the Turks has
forced Bulgaria to take action
which was really the duty of the
powers.
Turkey Preparing
Constantinople, October 3rd:���
"Strike hard at Bulgaria" is the
Turkish military slogan, in reply
to the threat of a general Balkan
war. Turkish troops are assembling, and a general mobilization
is looked for.
Italy Supports Powers
Rome, Oct. 3:���Italy, though
at war with Turkey, has joined
with the peacemakers, and is
supporting the Powers in an effort to prevent the Balkan states
from combining in an attack upon
Turkey.
May Go To War
Chicago, Oct. 3: -Bulgarians
and Servians living in Chicago,
to the number of several thousand, are drilling regularly, in
expectation of being called upon
to take part in a general attack
on Turkey. There are 45,000
here.
Fight On Frontier
Vienna, Oct. 3: It is reported
that a Servian regiment has repulsed a Turkish battalion as the
latter was crossing the Servian
frontier. The total casualties
were under fifty in number.
Royal Party Eastbound
Vancouver, Oct. 4:--The Duke
of Connaught and party left today for Vernon, They will tour
the Okanagan country.
Vanderbilt Cup
Milwaukee, Oct. 2:���De Palma
won the race for the Vanderbilt
cup today, driving his Mercedes
car 299 miles in four hours and
two seconds. Bruce Brown, a
wealthy New York motorist, one
of the competitors, was killed in
the race.
Relic of Nelson
Sydney. N. S. W., Sept 30:-
Bearing marks which leave no
reason for doubt, a sea chest has
been unearthed in Sydney which
originally belonged to Lord Nelson.
It is believed by historians and
others here that from the general
appearance of the chest, which
bears signs of much sea life, it
must have seen active service
with Lord Nelson on board the
Victory, at the battle of Trafalgar.
The discovery has resulted in
much excitement and the opinions of several antiquarians are
very much discussed. THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1912

At last the railway steel has reached Hazelton. On Thursday
the whistle of the tracklaying engines drew the eyes of the people
of the town to the South Hazelton station site, where the steady
progress of the work was plainly visible from the old town. Tonight's train will bring its passengers to the new townsite. The
people of Hazelton have waited long for the steel, and now that the
railhead has reached the site they have chosen for their station
there is an even more optimistic feeling than has been manifested
by the business men of the town in the past. With the ferry affording ready means of communication with the station, and the
prospect of the early construction of a government bridge to connect
the old and new towns, there is every reason for the belief that the
district and the town which always has been and will continue to
be its center are at the beginning of a period of great growth and
prosperity.
Instead of having to remove to an inconvenient point, the people of the present town can continue to do business at the old stand
until the time comes for them to establish themselves on the beautiful site immediately across the Bulkley.
With the construction of. a substantial bridge to South Hazelton and some necessary improvements to the roads, the settlers of
the Skeena and Kispiox, as well as the miners of Glen mountain and
Nine-Mile, will have communication with the railway at the most
convenient point for the shipment of their products. The farmers
on the other side of the Skeena, where there is a large and important area of first-class agricultural land, will doubtless meet with
success in their effort to secure the installation of a cable ferry to
South Hazelton, and will then have a convenient market for their
produce.
In the meantime, South Hazelton will be the end of steel for
some little time.

Would Rearrange Calendar
German scientists are planning
to systematise and normalize the
world. They want things all made
equal, simple and smooth.
The leaders of the movement
are Prof. Wilhelm Ostwald, the
Nobel prizewinner of 1909; Prof.
Schmoller of Berlin, and Dr.
Klaus Wagner, traveller, and
others.
They have plans for publishing
all books in standard sizes, compelling faster to fall always on
the same day of the same month,
reforming the calendar, revolutionizing chronology, and turning
arithmetic inside out.
The day of the reform future
will have a hundred hours, each
divided into a hundred minutes,
and each minute into a hundred
seconds.
"The exigencies of life have
already introduced in practice
this system of chronology; it remains only to recognize the fact,''
says Prof. Wagner, "We do not
count time by hours, but by
quarter hours, of which there are
nearly 100 in the day.
"When a man wants to state
time roughly he states it by the
quarter; appointments are made
by the quarter and for practical
purposes fifteen minutes is the
real time. Less than fifteen
minutes does not count much,
while half an hour is too long a
unit.
"The new hours, being a hurv
dredth part of the day, will each
contain fourteen and two-fifths
minutes, which is practically a
quarter of an hour. Instead of
saying "a quarter to one," people
will say simply "at forty-nine."
Prof. Wagner says people will
get used to that in a few days.
The practical obstacles are small.
Every new clock will have a dial
divided into 100 parts. The hour
hand will go round the new clock
only once a day. Old clocks can
be easily adapted. They will need
new dials, with double rows of
figures and from fifty to one
hundred and the hour hand will
complete the circuit twice a day.
"Weeks that refuse to fit into
the year and meaningless, irregular months must also be radically
reconstructed.
future will have six days. It will
begin on Monday, drop Saturday
altogether and end with Sunday.
There will be sixty Sundays in
the year.
"The month must contain six
weeks-that is, thirty-six days���
and there will be ten months in
the year. In that case any date
of the month will always fall on
the same week day. This will
save tremendous trouble.
"This arrangement provides
for only 360 days. The remaining five will not count as days of
the week. That would upset the
symmetrical months and weeks.
The odd five will be switched in
whenever convenient and used
for holidays, such as Christmas,
Easter and the nation holidays of
the different countries. Leap
Year would not spoil the harmony, because Leap Year Day
would not be February 29. but a
dateless, intercalated day.
"With such a division of time
the year would not any longer
fall into quarters. Things that
are now done quarterly would
be done every two months, that
is, every seventy-two days.
Quarterly reports, quarterly
meetings and so on would all be
regulated on the two-month basis.
This would be an advantage in
itself, once people got used to it."
Professor Wagner, backed by
all the systematizers, holds that
the day should be forced to begin
at a natural hour- at 6 a. m.

WILL INVESTIGATE
COAL ANO MINERAL
Dominion Bureau of Mines Sends
Official To Report On Resources  of   British   Columbia
Coal mining in Alberta and
British Columbia is the subject
of a special investigation by
Joseph G. S. Hudson, M. E./of
the mines branch of the interior
department, Ottawa. Mr. Hudson is now on his way to the
Nicola and Similkameen districts,
having just completed a tour of
Vancouver Island. He will also
visit the Crows Nest region.
He is preparing detailed information about the operations of
the various coal mining companies which are also asked to supply
data for schedules relating to the
coal areas owned by each corporation, output, transportation
facilities, cost of coal for developing electrical power, etc. The
information will be kent on file
in the department and will be
available for public use, as scores
of enquiries are being received
daily from people all over the
world. The idea of having detailed information ready for prospective investors and others originated with Dr. Eugene Haanel,
director of the branch. The same
method is being extended to all
the other branches of mining,
and engineers of the department
are now visiting the mining centres of Canada. Dr. Wilson, of
the staff, will visit British Columbia to report on the copper mining industry.
Mr. Hudson states that coal
from the various coal districts is
being tested in the laboratory at
Ottawa, each individual shipment
consisting of twenty tons. The
Same tests will be applied to the
precious metals, as a five-ton con-
concentrator and a five-ton stamp
mill are now being installed in
the government plant. Under
the plan adopted by the depart-,
ment, any enquirer will be supplied free with information respecting any mining district or
producing mine in the Dominion.
keeping out desirable citizens and
retarding the healthy physical
and national development of one
of the finest sections in the province. Today, after three years
residence in this valley, we find
the membets of the Doukhobor
Society boldly defying our law,
which has created a feeling of
unrest among our people, has depreciated our land values."
Exception was also taken to
the Doukhobors on moral
grounds.
KETTLE VALLEY MEN
OPPOSE DOUKHOBORS
Memorial Presented at Grand
Forks Takes Exception to
Queer Russian Colonists
Grand Forks, Sept. 30:��� The
feature of the sitting of the
Doukhobor enquiry commission
here, was the presentment by
a citizens' committee setting
forth reasons why the Doukhobors are considered detrimental
to the city, valley and province.
The Doukhobors, it was stated,
had acquired some of the choicest lands in the.district on which
the pioneer work had already
been done, and are said to be negotiating for further productive
areas. The fear was expressed
that the newcomers, if allowed
to come into the district at the
rate they have been coming for
some years past, would crowd
out the original settlers.
J he difficulties of assimilating
an entire, foreign colony were
dwelt upon in the presentment,
which says:
"Historically the Doukhobor
Society does not recognize nor
concede, and never has recognized or conceded the authority
of any government and as such
can never become assimilated
with our own people inasmuch
that their peculiar religion wil!
prohibit them from obeying our
laws or following our customs.
In this sense, we believe that any
considerable number residing in
a community in this province will
be a menace and detriment to
the best interests of the district,
as a whole.
"We would emphasize the fact
that we object to the Doukhobors j
commercially only in the sense
that they do not live the life of
our present population, and that
their example as citizens is not
desirable.      Their   presence   is
Russians for Omineca
Vancouver, Sept. 30:���"One
thousand Russians will leave in
two weeks for Northern British
Columbia, where they will establish themselves as permanent
colonizers and residents."
This was the statement given
out by A. M. Assanshawer, the
head of the Russian colonization
movement, who with five Russian
representatives, leaving for the
north Thursday evening to complete arrangements for the immediate occupancy of thejand by
the colonists.
Five hundred of the Russians
will settle at Moricetown, thirty
miles southeast of Hazelton, on
the G. T. P., and the other half
will colonize the territory between Decker and Burns Lakes,
100 miles farther south. Each
colonist will have from forty to
eighty acres. -
Half of the Russians will start
to clear the land and build homes
immediately, while the rest will
obtain work as contractors on the
G. T. P.
They will live in tents or improvised houses until permanent
dwellings can be erected.
Each colony will have a central
village, where a school or church
will be erected. A general store
will be erected where the colonists can obtain necessary provisions. The quantities of agricultural implements and horses
and cattle which they will need
will be supplied through the Vancouver office. These Russians
were originally from south east
Russia. They are expert farmers and are well fixed in a financial way.
Mr. Assanshawer is now negotiating for one hundred thousand acres additional land which
will be settled next spring.
Five thousand more Russians
will  be  provided   with   homes
through this colonization associa
tion by next march in time for
spring crops to be planted.
Five Were Drowned
Omemee, Ont., Sept, 30:���William McCaffery, his wife, mother
and two children were drowned
in Pigeon river yesterday when
their canoe upset. They were
fishing and MaCaffery hooked a
fourteen pound maskinonge,
which pulled so hard it overturned the frail craft. McCaffery
was assistant manager of the
Canadian General Electric Co. of
Toronto.
Canada's Trade
OUawa, Sept. 30: - The trade
of Canada for the first third of
the fiscal year, allows an increase
of nearly eighty millions dollars,
or a little over 80 per cent., as
compared with the corresponding
three months of last year. The
total trade for the fiscal four
months of the present fiscal year
was $328.035,844, as compared
with $249,031,736 last year.
Imports this year totalled $210,-
766,457, an increase o.f $47,907,-
809. Exports totalled $117,870,-
487, an increase of $31,697,599.
Imports for domestic consumption during the four months
totalled $209,334,046, an increase
of $52,336,666. Domestic exports
totalled $107,308,936, an increase
of ,$29,604,820. Exports of agriculture improved by nearly .$23,-
000,000, and exports of manufactured goods by over $2,000,000
and exports of mines by four and
one-half million.
If the present rate of increase
is continued for the full twelve
months Canada's trade for the
fiscal year will run over the billion dollars mark.

settlers occupying the fertile valleys of British Columbia within
the next twenty years. Up to
the present the newcomers land

much of the best labor remains

and it will attain it before long.
The question of railways grid-
ironing this province with branch

Rev. D. R. McLean.
Ottawa, Sept. 30.���In response
to a call sent out last week to the
ministers of the crown,����a practically complete cabinet council
convened this morning in the
office of the Privy Council, to
commence the task of preparing
the sessional programme.
One of the first things to be
decided on is the date of the
opening of Parliament, that will
be either Thursday, November
14, or Thursday, November 21,
is certain. No matter which date
is chosen, there remains only six
or seven weeks in ' which the
ministers must prepare for the
consideration by Parliament of
the various matters to be outlined
in the speech from the throne.
By far the most important of
these matters will be the government's declaration of naval
policy, which has become a subject of immediate consideration
by the cabinet\ The additional
information from the admiralty
which was promised Premier
Borden has now been received,
and the government is in possession of the complete facts both
in regard to the German situation, and the cost of the construction of war vessels of all
types.
That action this session will be
confined to the voting of an emergency contribution of a size yet
to be determined by council is
practically certain.
The permanent naval policy of
the government will not likely become definitely known until the
1913-14 session of parliament.
Many other matters of importance will engage the attention
of the ministers during the next
few weeks including the new
Bank Act, amendments to the
Railway Act, the bill to create a
Permanent Tariff Commission,
the bill to provide Federal Aid to
Highways and possibly the Redistribution Bill.
Carman* Are Anxious
B'irlin, Sept. 30:��� Thoughtful
Germans look upon the present
situation in Great Britain with
unconcealed anxiety, not on account of the growth of the British navy or the hostility and
suspicion displayed so widely in
England, but on account of the
possibility of the fall of the present ministry and the installation
of a Conservative government.
Since the last by-elections with
their steady Conservative gain
a number of prominent publicists
are pointing out that a change of
government will probably bring
in its train in Great Britain tariff
reform -a measure which will
hit German industry far harder
than the English patent legislation which forced so many German factories to establish bianch
establishments in England. That
the fall of the Liberal government is imminent is prophesized
as a certainty.      ���
Herman von Rath, a prominent
member of the Prussian Diet,
points out in an article in the
"Tag" that for this menace the
Germans and their navy development are in part to blame, since
one of the factors behind this
movement to abandon free trade
is the need for more revenue to
bear the cost of England's big
naval programme which has been
imposed upon the already enormous burdens for old age pensions, national insurance and
other social legislation. If England adopts a customs tariff, Germany, which has with Great Britain the largest trade relations,
will find herself paying not only
for her own big navy but for the
British navy aa well.
PRE-EMPTIONS WILL
BE INSPECTED NOW
Official Appointed to Supervise
Lands Taken Up by Settlers
In Province
Victoria, Sept. 30:���Many people throughout the province who
have taken up pre-emptions and
have not performed the necessary
settlement duties are liable to
find themselves in trouble before
very long. Less leniency will
probably be shown in this respect in the future than has
been the custom in the past.
Hitherto when a man applied
for a pre-emption, it was entered
on the books of the land department at Victoria and remained
there until application was made
for the crown grant. If the
pre-emptor abandoned the land,
this fact would not be ascertained
until somebody else wanted it
whereupon its status would be
looked up. No harm has been
done by this system, except perhaps in the case of forest land,
and the government has always
considered it good policy to give
the pre-emptor as much consideration as possible. Of late,
however, it has been judged well
to become a little more stringent
and to require the pre-emptor to
do his settlement work within a
reasonable time.
With this object in view an
inspector of pre-emptions, Mr.
Hutchinson, has been appointed
and other inspectors will be appointed in the near future.
Their duty will be to examine
the pre-emptions in order to see
what progress the settler is making and to keep up to the mark
as much as possible. Mr. Hutchinson, who is now on an inspection trip with this object in view
in the country around Vernon, is
said to have notified pre-emptors
that they had better get busy.
H. Cathcart, the recently appointed deputy minister, will
have special charge of these inspectors and will also see that the
pre-emption books in the lands
office are kept up to date.
In regard to forest lands, the
complaint was voiced at the recent forestry convention that
what is really forest land has
been scmetimes given as preemptions and has then been
promptly logged off and abandoned. This abuse which was
never very serious, will be corrected by the forestry bureau,
which in future will see to it that
no land is classed as agricultural
which has more than the legal
percentage of timber.

A fortnight ago Robert Mc-
Clain, formerly a teamster in
Hazelton, was taken ill while
freighting on the Bulkley road.
Pneumonia developed and, his
condition becoming serious, he
was brought in to the hospital a
few days ago. Every care was
given him after his arrival at the
hospital, but he failed to rally,
and his death occurred yesterday
morning. Deceased was a member of the Fraternal Order of
Eagles. Omineca Aerie, of Hazelton, will take charge of the
funeral arrangements.
The first wagon to be driven to
Francois lake, via Burns lake,
was that of C. Bransby Williams,
of Killay ranch. It took nearly
three days for J. H. Keefe, the
driver, to negotiate the twelve
miles between the end of the
the tote road, at the head of
Decker lake, and the Burns lake
bridge, where the North Francois road reaches the railway
line.   Messrs Williams and Keefe
John J. Anderson, a Francois
lake settler, was in town during
the week.
Robert Jeffrey, of Francois
lake, accompanied by his two
sons, spent a couple of days in
town during the week. Mr. Jeffrey left for Vancouver on Thursday.
Harry Webber, stewart of the
Ingineca Csfe, is absent on a
business trip to Prince Rupert.
Ed. Kohse is officiatiug in the
absence of the popular  "Slats."
News has been received from
the east of the death of the broth-
ther of J. Mason Adams and J.
F. Adams, of Hazelton. The latter was on his way to his brother's bedside when the sad
event occurred.
At the construction supply
cache at Barrett's ranch, on
Saturday last, D. L. McLennan,
who is in charge of the contractors' supplies at that point, died
suddenly of heart disease. Deceased was 23 years of age and a
native of Scotland. He had been
employed by- Foley, Welch &
Stewart since his arrival in Canada, three years ago. His
brother, M. McLennan, of Prince
Rupert, will accompany the remains to the coast, where the
funeral will be held.
Severe criticism of the medical
staff on construction has been
occasioned by the delay in obtaining a death certificate in this
case. It appears that some, at
least, of the physicians in the
contractors' hospital service, are
not qualified to issue certificates.
An investigation of this and other
matters relating to the hospital
service will be asked for.
