More Complication! in Balkan Conflict
���Roumania Exacts Concession! From
Defeated Bulgarians���Stories of Atrocities Confirmed���Terms of Peace
Washington, July 21:���Conditions in China are becoming a-
larming, according to today's reports to the state department. A
separation movement in Southern China is the cause. The
American legation at Shanghai
has declared its independence of
the Pekin government.
While accurate news is difficult
to obtain at Pekin, it is stated
that four of the central provinces
are believed to have declared
their independence of Yuan Shi
Kai's government, and that efforts are being made to organize
an independent government at
Nanking. Many of the nationals
have left their homes in the
south. The most reliable information shows the mutinous state
of the national army in Kiang Si
Province.
Hongkong, July 21:���The severance of the province of Kwang
Tung from the central government at Peking was proclaimed
by the governor-general of
Kwang Tung today. The capital of the province is Canton.
The governor-general declares
thai the provincial council has
appointed him governor-general
and commander-in-chief to lead
the southern troops against those
of President Yuan Shi Kai.
I Pekin, July 24: ��� Mutinous
troops in the south lost eight
hundred killed in an ineffective
attack on government troops.
London, July 24:���There is a
dearth of news from the Balkans.
Stories of Bulgarian atrocities
have been confirmed. It is stated
that Bulgars tossed babies on
the points of their bayonets.
Bucharest, July 21:���It is officially confirmed here that Bulgaria has accepted the conditions
laid down by Roumania and has
also agreed to the terms of peace
with Servia and Greece.
London, July 21:-The Turks
have entered Adrianople after a
brief conflict with the Bulgarian
garrison, says a Sofia despatch to
the Times. Bashi Bazouks are
burning, pillaging and committing atrocities.
The Roumanian troops are advancing in easterly direction and
threaten Eastern Rumelia.
After vain attempts to negotiate separately with Roumania
the Bulgarian government accepted the advice of Austria and
Russia and offered Roumania an
important territorial concession.
Bulgaria also sent delegates to
meet the Servian and Greek and
presumably the Roumanian representatives at Nish to negotiate
an armistice and peace.
Hazelton Still
The Only Town
Vancouver, July 21:��� Under
an agreement with J. W.
Stewart, of Foley, Welch &
Stewart, the townsite interests
of W. J. Sanders in South Hazelton have been withdrawn from
the market for a limited time.
Mr. Sanders still retains his
ownership in the townsite, but
will not offer the lots for sale during the term of the agreement.
Mr. Stewart acted for the New
Hazelton interests.
It is evident from the above
despatch that "Jack" Stewart,
who succeeded in blocking the
efforts of the people of Hazelton
to secure the construction of a
bridge across the Bulkley, be-
ween Hazelton and the station,
is still busy on behalf of the New
Hazelton townsite interests. His
achievement will have no effect
on the town of Hazelton, which
is, and will continue to be, the
distributing point and headquarters for the district.

LABOR COMMISSION
SITHTJAZELTON
The provincial labor commission held a sitting in the courtroom on Wednesday evening,
No labor representatives attended, but a good deal of information regarding labor conditions
throughout the district was obtained from the witnesses,
among whom were Donald McLeod of Foley, Welch & Stewart, Contractor A. L. McHugh,
E. H. Hicks Beach, Chief Constable G.ammon, Government
Agent Hoskins, F. B. Chettleburgh and R. 0. Jennings. The
members of the commission are
H. G. Parson, chairman, A. M.
Harper, R. A. Stoney, John Jardine, J. A. MacKelvie and F. R.
McNamara, secretary.
A Japanese Invasion
Vancouver, July 2 3:���Nine
Japanese army men landed illegally in British Columbia from
a small Japanese vessel which
put into Bella Bella on Tuesday,
having tossed on the waters of
the Pacific for two months since
leaving Japan in May. The captain of the vessel intended to
smuggle the Japs into the United
States, but was" compelled to
land at Bella Bella for supplies.
As the Union steamship Camosun
put in on Tuesday the smuggler
escaped with twelve Japs on
board, leaving nine ashore. One
of these escaped into the woods,
the remainder being arrested
and brought to Vancou ver. They
will be deported. Several vessels are now in pursuit of the
Japanese ship. Although the
voyage is believed to have been
the personal venture of the captain, the Dominion government I
is being urged to send a note to
the Japanese government, pro-j
testing against the violation of;
the treaty limiting the immigra-j
tion of Japs to 450 yearly through i
regular channels.
After prospecting for years in
many camps, Henry Bretzins, a
Slocan miner, who started out
from Hazelton a couple of weeks
ago, made his first big find a few
hours after he began prospecting
on the Cronin trail, in the Babine
range, Camping 24milesf rom Moricetown, he started out to get a
view from the top of the hill.
Finding galena float, he traced
it up for a short distance, discovering a ledge apparently five
feet wide and exposed for a
length of 750 feet. On the hanging wall was a streak of steel
galena three inches wide, the
same ore occurring in streaks
and bunches throughout the vein.
The lucky prospector staked four
claims, calling the group the
Debenture, and returned to Hazelton to record. He packed out
a quantity of the surface ore,
which is of excellent appearance
and carries $78 in silver and lead.
In expectation of finding more
mineral in the neighborhood, *
number of prospectors have gone
to the scene of the strike.
On the Ingineca group a tunnel has been started on the 40-
foot vein. Ed Kohse, who came
in on Monday, says the tunnel is
already in fifteen feet and shows
about four feet of quartz, with
plenty of yellow copper and some
gray copper. A crosscut will be
driven to tap number one and
number two veins at a depth of
about 100 feet.
On the Silver Creek group,
situated just back of Smithers,
the Hudson Bay Mining Co. is
busily engaged in development,
with forty men working under
the management of Harry Car-
perter. Col. R. G. Steele, superintendent of the property, is expected to return from the coast
in a few days, accompanied by
directors of the company. This
concern, with one of the best
prospective mining properties in
the district, is likely to cut an
important figure in the development of our mines. Within
thirty days it is expected that
the crosscut tunnel will tap the
big showing on the second vein.
With a length of about four
hundred feet, the tunnel will
give a depth of foot for foot on
the vein, it is estimated. The
company is working in the most
systematic and thorough manner.
J. G. Carsley, of Montreal, arrived with R. G. S t e e I e on
Wednesday. They have gone
up to Smithers.
Plans for Divisional
Town at Smithers
R. E. Williams, of the Wil-
liams-CarrCo., district agents for
Smithers townsite, returned on
Wednesday from Vancouver. He
is more than ever enthusiastic
regarding the divisional point,
and informed The Miner that
elaborate plans for the development ofthe town and the railway
shops, etc., had been completed
and would be immediately given
effect. A number of local business men have purchased lots in
Smithers. Building operations
will begin at once.
John Hutchinson, an official of
the lands department, visited
Smithers this week, to select the
government's share of the lots.
He was much pleased with the
district and the new town.
J. 0. Trethewey, the Cobalt
man who is interested with Frank
Martin in the White Heather
group, visited the property this
week. He expressed himself as
well pleased, not only with the
property in which he is interested, but also with others on Hudson Bay mountain. A small
crew is working on the White
Heather at present, and larger
operations are being planned.
Frank Martin is preparing to
make a shipment of ore, much
of which carries native silver.
The first shipment will probably
be made to Trail.
Harold Price came up from
Vancouver on Saturday and visited Smithers, where his firm has
a large number of surveyors in
the field. He speaks highly of
the new Bulkley Valley town.

Projected Enterprise Would Open Immense and Valuable Territory in
Northern British Columbia, Yukon
And Alaska���U. S. May Assist
Victoria, July 21: The proposal of Sir Richard McBride
that the Governments of Canada
and the United States shall unite
in, constructing a trunk line ox
railway that will connect the
Alaskan and Canadian lines, is
being received with favor where-
ever it is mentioned. In a private letter from J. F. A. Strong,
Governor of Alaska, he expresses
his hearty sympathy with the
proposal and his willingness to do
whatever he can to promote the
mutual welfare of Canada and
Alaska.
Speaking generally, the proposed railway would be a main
artery carrying the life blood of
progress to an area of more than
three-quarters of a million square
t
miles of territory rich in natural
resources of various kinds. Northern British Columbia and the
Yukon Territory contain, by careful estimate, sufficient arable land
to support a million people by agriculture.
Mediation Proposed
Washington, July 24: ��� The
Mexican situation has somewhat
changed, proposals now coming
that the United States act as
mediator while the general elections are being held and until
constitutional government is established. It is also proposed
that Secretary Bryan should go
to Mexico as head of a peace
commission.

Winnipeg bonds were also oversubscribed.
B.C. Hard to Beat

The latest pre-emptor's map
issued by the provincial government is the Bulkley sheet, covering a large part of the Omineca
district, including the Hazelton
district and the Bulkley Valley.
The map is up to date, and appears to be correct in all essential
particulars. It is given free to

quite unsensational, it was highly interesting as an exposition ol |
the admirable commission system adopted by the British Columbia
government. The commissioners showed a laudable desire to obtain all information regarding the conditions of labor throughout
the district, and especially along the line of railway construction,
li is rather unfortunate that witnesses qualified'to speak of
the hospital conditions along the line were not available at the
time of hearing. The commissioners showed by their questions
that this subject had been brought to their notice, but no evidence
was forthcoming. As the inquiry will be continued at Fort
Ceorge and Fort Fraser, it is to be hoped that the Labor Commission will be able to probe the contractors' hospital system to
the bottom. Most serious complaints of incompetence and inattention have been made, and it is high time the matter was
looked into.
As a result of the work of the commission, there will be introduced in the legislature a number of laws, which will probably
provide, among other things, for an eight-hour day; cash payment
of employees; regulation of employment agencies: government
in iurance of employees, and further restriction of Oriental immigration.

to come to the Coast to prepare
plans for the visit of about fifty
delegates to the International
Geological Congress to this province. The other gentlemen connected with the department who
have been here for some time are
Ii. G. McConnell and C. H. Clapp.
The party of famous scientists
from all parts of ths world will
arrive in Vancouver about the end
of August, among them being
Dr. Alfred Hai'ker of Oxford
University. Dr. K. W. Brock,
director of the Geological Survey,
will be in charge of the party.
The itinerary as already mapped
out includes a visit to several of
the coal areas of the province,
including those along Ihe railway
out of Prince Rupert into the
Bulkley Valley, and a trip to the
Yukon. A number of local geologists will accompany the party
through the province.
This is the twelfth meeting of
the congress and it will be held
in Toronto in August. It is the
first time Canada has been honored as a place of meeting. One
of the main objects of the congress is to make a study of the
coal areas of the earth with a
'. view to estimating the extent of
the coal reserves.
With this idea in view, the
delegates will divide into a niim-
: ber of parties at the conclusion
of the formal deliberations in
Toronto and visit different parts
of the Dominion. This division
was necessary owing to the great
extent of the Dominion. Otherwise it would take years to
achieve the task in hand. In
other and older countries, notably
in Europe, the congress was able
to keep together, and all the
members saw all the different
conditions, but in a country with
the vast dimensions of Canada
and the tremendous variety
of conditions, it would of
course  be  impossible to attempt
out that big country. Grain at
Stella and around Fraser lake,
where it has been grown for many
years, never looked better, he
says, than at present. All the
farmers are looking forward to
good crops. Around Burns and
Decker lakes there is much activity. Freeport is a new town
at the very foot of Burns lake.
Although only started in May,
il has already one general store,
a jewelry store, two restaurants,
and one barber shop. J. W.
Paterson, the Kitselas business
man, has a large store at this
point, carrying a big general
stock. Railroad construction is
going ahead to the entire satisfaction of the contractors, although the heavy rains of early
summer, spoiling the roads, made
the freighting of supplies a
matter of difficulty. Fishing is
a popular sport in this part of
the country, there being plenty
of trout, of several varieties, in
both Burns and Decker lakes.
