NO SCHEME FOR
LABOR REPUBLIC
Deported South African Workers Say
That Talk Is All Bosh—Leaders
Now In England Have Little to
Say—Have Conferred With British
Trades Council Regarding* Money
London, Feb. 25.—The South
African labor leaders now in England describe their arrival here as
an outrage, they having been deported without the choice of an appeal
to justice. The labor leaders when
pressed for an interview for the
Canadian papers by your correspondent today said: "We ca,i say nothing more than you have had in the
papers. All this talk about our
scheming for a labor republic is
bosh,"
The exiled nine all said they were
too tired to talk. Mr. Poutenia is
obviously the leader of the exiles,
but, although he stands six feet
three, he assumes an attitude of
adamant silence.
He and Bain, the second in command, visited the British -Trades
Council today. Apparently the financial arrangements connected with the
situation were gone into.    Poutemi
and Bain would range up well alongside any labor leaders   Canada    has
produced.    The others appear to be/
about equal to the type that haunt %
railway construction camps.

A POPULAR
RAILWAY NAN
W. P. HINTON OF THE G.T.P. SERVICERS WELL CONSIDERED
IN RAILWAY CIRCLES.
He Is Looked Upon As    One if the
Most Prouiistng Men in
the Company.
APPROVED ACTION
OF THE GOVERNMENT
The Montreal Mail has t.:e following from the pen of "Wanderer''
relative to W. P. Hinton of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, who is so well
known here:
Mr. William P. Hinton, the new
assistant passenger traffic manager
of the Grand Trunk Pacific, in Ottawa, as a youth, in the early nineties, had already won his spurs 'n
the service of the old Canada Atlantic Railway. He was only sixteen
when be left school to be a railwayman, but he soon made it clear that
he "had the stuff" in him and Ids
promotion was rapid. When the Canada Atlantic was taken over by ,he
Grand Trunk, Mr. Hinton was put
in charge of the immigration aid
trans-Atlantic passenger traffic, bin
in 1907 he was transferred to Montreal, and in 1909 to Winnipeg as
one of the first officials of the Crranr1.
Trunk Pacific. There are few more
popular railway men in Canada than
"Billy" Hinton. His advance in rark
has in no degree lessened, his bon-j
homie. He is as cheerul. although |
his responsibilities have increased
about five hundred per cent., as lie
was when he used to play lacrosse on
Cartler Square and later on the exhibition grounds in Ottawa. He has
one characteristic which stands him
in good stead. He either knows a
thing himself regarding the Grand
Trunk Pacific system or he knows
where to place his hand on It, anl
In nine cases out of ten it will bo
found that the record fulfils his understanding of the fact, whatever i
may be, He was out In the West last
summer and had to answer a regular
battery of questions put to him bj
various boards of trade and other
business men's organizations, bul in I
every case he was able to give a I
satisfactory reply, or at least an as
surance that, so far as lie was con
cerned, the matter would be renif '
died, and, as a merchant in Regina I
said to the- writer: "If Billy Hinton i
gives me his word that it will hr I
all right, all right it will be." There
are those who predict that it will not
be many years before the Grind
Trunk Pacific will have to maintain i
an executive assistant in Winnipeg, |
as the Canadian Pacific Railway
does now, and when the tinue conies
for the Grand Trunk Pacific to nominate a man to rank up with George
Bury, then W. P. Hinton will be
"IT." He is only a young man yet,
but he has wide experience, and behind that the knowledge which
many a hundred men would like to
have.   "Billy"   Hinton   is  one of  the
Meeting    of  Nanniino    Conservative
Association Attended by Miners and Business Men.
At a ...eeting in Nanainu, under
the auspices of the Nanaimo Conservative Association, which was
largely attended by miners, as well
as by leading business men, the following resolution  was passed:
"That this gathering of Conservatives of the cltj of Nanaimo expresses its full and unabated confidence in the Government of British
Columbia and Its hearty approval of
its action in regard to the strike
of the coal miners on Vancouver Island, lieing fully convlncd that Sir
Richard McBride, as minister of
mines, and Hon. W. J. Bowser, as
acting minister of mines, discharged
the responsible duties ol their offices in the best interest? of the local
community."
In moving the resolution Mayor
Plauta. made a long speech supporting the attitude of the Government
and severely scoring Messrs. Williams and Place for their misrepresentations on the floor of the Legis-
lature.

Man Who Is Believed to Have Aided
the Bandits Who Held Up Great
Northern Train Has Been Taken
Into Custody—It Is Believed He
Took Desperadoes to Hiding Place
Belllngham, Feb. 25.—I/ee Wal-
ruth, who is believed lo be the man
who aided in the escape of the bandits who held up the Great Northern
train at Samish, was arrested today
at Birch Bay by Sheriff Thomas. He
was heading towards Britsh Columbia at the time.
Walruth stands accused of stealing a launch from Bellinghain jusi
before the hold-up on Saturday
morning. He appeared at the Lummi
Bay Packing Company's establishment on Lummi Island and sought
shelter, remaining there until yesterday.
This morning Sheriff Thomas with
two other men started out in a fast
launch to scour the bays between
here and the British Columbia
boundary line in search of the man.
At Birch Bay they

lurned tlie boat over to a farmer. He
told the farmer he might have the
use of It for a month as he was going to British Columbia. The sheriff
and his men started from Blaine in
a wagon and overtook Walruth, placing him under arrest.
The* theory is that Walruth aided
the bandits by taking them to a hiding place on one of the islands of
the Gulf. He then started out to take
care of himself. He carried two revolvers and a rifle when arrested,
which indicate the length to which
he was prepared to go rather than
give up had he not been taken unawares.
The reward offered by the Great
Northern has been increased from
$15,000 to $30,000, and this has
tempted many private citizens to

The guaranteeing of the bonds of
the Pacific Great Eastern from Fort
George north ward iu the direction of
the Peace River District is amove
which will have its beneficial effects
upon Prince Rupert, With the Iniilil-
Ing of thai part of the line north
of Furl George there will be n rich
farming territory opened up as well
as mineral country. All that will by
way of the Grand Trunk Pacific be
brought Into touch with this port.
It is true that the opportunity will
be afforded to ship to Vancouver
also, but Prince Rupert will have an
equally good opportunity to get the
trade with that territory.
LAI'RIER'S HLl NDERS.
The Hamilton Herald an independent paper, is disposed to reserve
judgment on some of the points of
the indictment of the National Transcontinental Commission till it hears
wtiat members of the old administration   have  lo say.  But   it   adds  this:
"There can be no satisfactory defence ol the blunder committed by
the late government iu appointing
as N.T.R. commissioners, responsible
inr ihe construction of the great national highway, three political patti-
zans, not one of w'honi had had any
practical experience in railway construction and management. Nor can
there be any convincing defence of
the Laurier governni 'tit's poll
constructing tbe 460 miles of railway
between Quebec anil Moncton, 'lm
paralleling the Intercolonial.''

Yesterday.
Residents ni Prince Rupert received a severe shock yesterday on
learning that W. II. Kinkade had
passed away suddenly early in the
morning. Mrs. Kinkade and Miss
Kinkade had left home early in the
morning to attend mass at the Roman Catholic Church, and, returning,
were shocked to find that during
their absence the head of the house
had  passed away.
The deceased was very popular
in this city, where he had resided
from the early days of the place.
Paying a flying visit to Prince Rupert from Denver, Colo., in the first
days of the city, he decided to make
his home here and accordingly
brought his family here and has remained in the city ever since, following the calling of real estate broker
and financial agent. He ion made
may friends and became ;cei ilingly
popular in the city. Always most optimistic with regard to 'be future of
Prince   Rupert,  his  assistance    was

Granby  Smelter
And  .Mines  lo Supply 11.
The British Columbia Mining
Record gives a great deal of information relative to the Granby Smelter and the works there which form
a --.Tillable tributary asset to Prince
Rupert. The facts as set forth are
fron notes given by the head of the
company. The Record says:
No other metal mining enter-j
prise yet undertaken in the Coast
District north of Howe Sound lias |
been on such an extensive scale as
that of the Granby Consolidated
Mining, Smelling and Power Co., in
the vicinity of Granby Bay, formerly
known as Goose Bay, Observatory
Inlet.
All through the year the development of the company's Hidden Creek
mines lias been continued. Underground work done in course of
opening the ore bodies was about
9000 Un, ft., bringing the aggregate
of such work up to about 24,000
tin. ft.; diamond-drilling totalled
about, 10,000 ft. in 1913, making an
aggregate of approximately 40,000
it. ,-\n estimate of ore developed
places Ihe total nt something like
8,000,000 tons containing an average
(.!' i'.:; per cent, nf copper ami -"
cents ii ton in gold and silver. The
company's superintendent of mines
reports thai this estimate leaves oul
,,: account "low-grade ore I0.fi to.
n.7 per cent, copper), of which there
are huge Quantities Burroundlng the1
No, 2 ore-body,
was six months
contain 1,431,000 urns and No. 1
ore-body 3,328,000 ions, bul work
done Blnce has shown even more
ore "in sight." The great bulk of-the
ore Included In the estimate lies
above the 385-ft, level, bul ore also
n icurs in the 530-, 630-^ and 700-ft;
levels, mi whirl), though much less
development  lias been done.
Beside mine development, the
■ company has been busily engaged in
providing more power, erecting
smelling works, adding to shipping
facilities imih by means of railway
between mines and smeltery and
dock, and for loading and unloading
/easels at the waterfront! also for
bringing in  by  water ore, coke anil
The latter ore-body
ago    estimated    to
general supplies. A late report from
the superintendent in charge of construction is to the effect that the
entire mechanical equipment, including that of smelting works, hydroelectric power system, railway, machine shops, etc., is practically completed, and that, after two weeks'
preliminary running to make adjustments usually necessary in starting a new plant, operations will be
on a permanent basis by spring.
The stated capacity of the smelting works is 2000 tons of ore a day.
While the Hidden Creek mines will
be depended upon for the time being,
to supply the greater part of the ore
to keep the furnaces in blast, the
company has purchased two copper
mines in Alaska, and will also receive custom ores to augment the
supply for the works.
In carrying out the above-mentioned works the Granby Co. has been
proceeding along the lines of development laid down several years ago.
It will be the policy of the company
to broaden out the scope of its work
on the Coast, but the extent of this
expansion wfll depend largely on
what it shall find to work on and
on financial conditions,
The following description has been
taken from The Engineering mid
.Mining Journal, New York, which illustrated the article with a number
of excellent cuts, showing the works
in various stages of construction:
The Hidden Creek reduction works
of the Granby Consolidated .Mining.
Smelting and Power Co., Ltd., is
rapidly approaching completion, ana
Is expected u> be ready early in
1914 for blowing in on ores from
tbe comany's nearby mines, in which
sunn' 8,000,000 tons of ore containing more than 2 per rent, copper has been developed; and Incidentally a much larger tonnage of
lower-grade ore. The Granby Co. has
recently acquired other mines along
the coast of British Columbia,
wliirli later will ship ore lo the new
works, and there are possibilities of
custom tonnage. Because of the higher tenor of the Hidden Creek ores,
the new works of 2000 tons daily
capacity will produce as much copper
as tho older plant at Grand Forks,
B.C., which smelts nearly double this
tonnage.
The works are on Granby Bay,
formerly called Goose Bay, an Indenture in the western shore of Hastings  Arm,   which,  with     Alice  Arm,
merges into Observatory Inlet. The
Burniston range of mountains, rising to an elevation of 5710 ft., separates Observatory Inlet from Portland Canal; the mines and reduction works are on the eastern foothills of this range. The settlement
is called Anyox, and being on deep
water is directly accessible to oceangoing steamers. There are usually
two steamers that arrive weekly from
Vancouver.
The mines are one mile in a direct
line from Anyox; two miles by road.
A 3-ft. gauge electric railway connects the wharf with the smeltery,
and the latter with the mines, the
total length of connecting tracks being 4 1-2 miles. The mines are at a
considerable elevation above tidewater, which necessitated building a
switchback in the line between the
smelting plant and the wharf. The
direct haul from the mine-haulage
way to the works is 9600 feet. Hauling will be done by 42-ton Baldwin-
Westinghouse electric locomotives,
drawing ore cars of -'fi tons capacity.
The ore is chalcopyrite and pyrite
in slates and schists. Two distinct
ore-bodies have been opened, one
yielding heavy sulphide and the
other siliceous sulphide ore. To date,
workings consisting of 40,600 ft. of
diamond drilling, 17,300 ft. of tunnels, and 4200 ft. of raises have developed 8,000,000 tons of ore containing more than 2 per cent, copper, and 16,000,000 tons of ore containing about 1.5 per cent, copper.
I Electric haulage is used in the
mines, in which no timbering Is required.
Ground clearing ai the works Bite
.-..■■ begun about one year ago, and
the first work consisted of cutting
down and burning the forest growth.
Hydraulic grading was used In excavating in  loose ground. .    .
The ore from the mines will be
weighed in the 25-ton cars on a 40-
ft., 80-ton capacity, track scale,
thence will be dumped into ore bins
of 8000 tons capacity, over the tops
of which the tracks from the mine
line run. The ore will be drawn from
the bottom of these bins into the
charge cars, running on a track 36
ft. below the grade of the mine
track.
The furnaces, of which there are
three, are 50 in. wide by 30 ft. long
and are the regular type of rectangular water-jacketed matting
furnace    made by the Traylor    En
gineering & Manufacturing Co. The
furnaces are provided with 4 1-2 in,
tuyeres at 10-in. centres. The slag
tap is al the side. The converter
room is in one end of the main
smeltery building, in which are three
converter stands. The converters or
the Great Falls type are 12 ft, in
diameter.
The downtakes from the furnaces
and the flue from the converter
hoods, lead into a large dust chamber at the side of the main smeltery
building. From the centre of the
chamber tbe main flue leads up the
hill to the reinforced concrete stack
22 ft. in diameter by 153 ft. high,
the top of which is about 300 ft.
above  the  furnaces.
The Granby Co. has secured from
the British Columbia Government Hie
right to reclaim a large area of
ground by filling in a shallow water
area in Granby Bay directly in front
of the smeltery site with slag. This
is a convenient dumping ground for
the slag obtained, and as the dump
shall grow, the area of the company's new-made land will gradually
increase.
Power will be generated at a
hydro-electric plant, on Granby Bay.
just below the smeltery site. The
water of Falls Creek will be impounded by a crib and rock-filled
dam, one mile back of the smeltery. A 6-ft, wooden-stave pipe will
convey Ihe water from the reservoir to the Helton wheels in the
power house, at an available head
of 400 ft. The power-house equipment includes two a.c. electric generators with exciters; two motor
generator sets of 300 k.w. each;
three Conrersvllle blowers, with
Pelton buckets on flywheel of blowers, with a capacity of 45,000 cu.
ft. of free air per minute, supplied at
3-lb. pressure; and a Nordborg blowing engine, with a capacity of 21,-
500 cu. ft. of free air per mill., al P
pressure of 16 lb. A Nordberg compressor,,with a capacity of 4,000 cu.
ft, per mill, at 100 lb. pressure, is
also Installed in the building. The
blowing engine and compressor are
provided with buckets on the flywheel,   the  same  as  the  blower.
The company will, lor the present,
secure coke and such coal as is needed, from the Crow's Nest Pass Company's collieries near Tacoma, Wash,
There is a possibility that later the
company will get Its coal from a
region   southeast   of    the     Portland
Canal district, and there is   another
[deposit on the northern part, of Gra-
i haul   Island,   both  of  which     places
may supply coking coal.    Fuel from
either of these sources will be cheap-
. er than Crow's Nest Pass fuel, which
has to be hauled a considerable dis-
i tance by rail from the mines to the
I British  Columbia  Coast.     Limestone
I for flux will come from a deposit on
Portland    Canal.     25   miles    below
Stewart.
The company has built a town,
Anyox, near tin s aeltery, and a good
sized-camp at the mines. One hundred cottages with mess and sleeping quarters for 600 men, with all
modern conveniences, have been
built for housing employees. Beside
these cottages, there are an office
building, telegraph office, custom
office, recreation hall, hotel, a school
for children of employees iu charge
of a woman teacher, and a hospital,
Tiie Government telegraph line to
Stewart, at the head of Portland
Canal, close to tbe international
boundary line, passes through Anyox.
