Record Trip From        Largest Lighthouse        Mineral Output
Charlotte To Massett On Pacific Coast       Has Great Increase
Prince Rupert F£an Rode One Hundred
aiid Twenty Miles in Twenty-Three
Hours Riding Time on Same Horse.
The following report of the trip from
Queen Charlotte to Massett, recently
made by Mr. J. S. Cowper of Prince
Rupert, who was accompanied by
Mex.can Tom as gu:de, is taken from
the Daily News :
"To ride a distance of one hundred
and twenty miles from Charlotte City
to Massett in twenty-three hours without chang;ng horses—most of the way
dur ng a blind ng storm—is the record
of hotsemanship made by Mr. J. S.
Cowper of Prince Rupert, accompanied
by Mex can Tom, the cow puncher of
Oyanda Rive/. The trip has always
been cons dered a good three days' ride,
and when the party left Charlotte City
at 10.30 a.m. on Tuesday to catch the
Prince John at Massett on Thursday
noon, it was freely prophecied that they
were attempting the impossible.
"It was decided to make one day's
ride, and then afier a test to make a
day and a night r;deto finish. The first
cay brought the party to Walsh's ranch
at the Ti-El River, after seven and a
half hours ride over the new tra.l from
Charlotte City.
" From Tl-El which was left at8 a.m.,
Mexican Tom's was made at 2.50 p.m.
The storm by that time had arisen, and
the Mexican's horse was all in. After
a rest till 8 p.m. to allow of fording the
tidal rivers, a start was again made at
the height of the storm to make anight
ride along the coast to Tow Hill. Mexican had a new mount, and led his black
stallion, Marquis, as a precaution against
accident.
'' Only one accident occurred, when
the Mexican's horse fell in jumping a
log in the darkness. Rounding Rose
Spit in the storm and darkness the
travellers trusted to the horses finding
the trail. Smith's store at Tow Hill
was reached at 1.15 a.m. after fording
the Hiellen River, the riders being
drenched to the skin. A fresh start
was made at 7.45 on the last stretch to
Massett, which was reached at 11.15.
The Prince John which was stormbound,
did not arrive till late in the evening.
"The feature of the ride was the
splendid performance of the Mexican's
young mare Annie Laurie, which carried
Mr. Cowper the entire journey, wearing
out two relays of older horses, and finishing the trying journey in a fresh condition. She has never been broken to
the saddle, and it was not expected at
the start that she could last more than
half the journey but she covered the
long journey in less than twenty-three
hours actual f iding time, in the teeth of
Is Now Under Construction at North Department of Mines' Report Shows
Island, Queen Charlotte Group. That Total Value of Ore Mined was
Twelve Men at Work. One Hundred and Five Million Dollars
What will be the largest and most
powerful lighthouse, when completed,
on the Pacific Coast, is now unde • construction at North Island, situated off
the north-west coast of Graham Island.
Twelve men are engaged at present in
pieparing the foundations for the structure which is to be of the most modern
type and with powerful illumination to
make the way clear for the ships of the
seven seas and inward and outward
bound to Prince Rupert. This lighthouse is an important aid to navigation
for all vessels sailing these waters, and
will be appreciated by the boats making
the Island trip. It is on a par with the
plans of the late government for the
development of Prince Rupert as a seaport, and will no doubt be completed
along with the other marine works in
progress, under the new regime.
Well Known Mining Man Dead.
Samuel Lichtenstadter, resident member of the Arctic Club, principal stockholder of the famous Mount Andrew
copper mine on Prince Wales Island, and
a mining man of world-wide acquaintance, was found dead in bed of heart
disease, at the Steadman Hotel in
Ketchikan, Alaska.
Mr. Lichtenstader left Seattle on
August 1 to inspect his property, which
recently had been placed under contract
with the United States Smelting & Refining Company for $2,500,000. He was
in the best of health at the time.
He was one of the original participants in the great Klondike rush. He
wintered in 1897 at Fort Yukon. It was
there that he got the information which
led him to seek out and later develop the
property on Prince of Wales Island,
which he named Mount Andrew.

The completion of Canada's fifth census, begun in June, will show a total
population considerably under 8,000,000,
according to unofficial calculations. The
official figures will be made public in a
few days, as soon as the returns are in
from the northwest districts.
a gale, without whip or spur, finding
her way in and out and over the drift
logs on the eastern shore of Graham
Island in the darkness.
1' The record is expected to stand for
many years to come.''
The total value of the mineral production of Canada during the past year
exceeded $105,000,000, an increase of
$13,209,517 over that of 1909. This is
indicated by a preliminary report just
issued by the department of mines. An
increase of 14 per cent, is a very substantial one and according to the reports
should be particularly gratifying not
only to those who are directly interested
in the development of the mineral
resources of the country but to the
publ c at large, who indirectly profit
thereby.
There has been an increased product
in nearly every province, the only falling off being shown by New Brunswick,
wh le Ontario is well in the lead with
over 40 per cent, of the total for Canada.
In silver products sflone there was an increase of 16 per cent, this being chiefly
in Cobalt, Porcupine and other mining
districts in that province. The production of silver in Ontario totalled $15,-
711,513.
 o	
Will Explore Territory.
Sir D. D. Mann has announced his
intention to place in the field an exploration party which will cover the
territory between Stewart and Edmonton, via the Peace River country, with
a view of making an exhaustive report
on the mineral, farming, timber and
ranching possibilities of the hinterland.
It is probable, too, that request will be
made to the Provincial Government to
send a similar expedition into the field.
 o	
Big Liner Rammed.
Upon leaving Southampton for New
York the White Star liner Olympic, the
largest steamer afloat, with every berth
filled, was rammed by the big British
cruiser Hawke. Only a prompt beaching of the huge liner prevented the
worst marine disaster in history. The
Olympic carried three thousand passengers. The Hawke was also damaged,
but made port under her own steam.

The boy scout movement was condemned by unanimous vote at the
Trades and Labor Congress, recently
held at Calgary, as being wrong in
principle, giving boys wrong ideals and
constituting a menace to the working
classes, teaching boys that the proper
caper is to shoot down toilers on strike.
Only one man said a good word for the
scouts.

Johnson-Wells Fight.
Lor.dor., Sept. 28.—Great opposition is beir.g fomented in Great
Britain against the forthcoming
heavyweight boxing contest between Jack Johnson and Bombardier Wells, which is scheduled
to take place next Monday.
"Times" Denounces Fight
The "Times" in an editorial,
urges that in the Empire's interest the Johnson-Wells match
ought to be stopped because it
has no sporting justification. The
spectator, says the "Times,"
will be attracted by a morbid
and unwholesome interest in a
struggle between a white man
and a black man, and the contest
itself, together with the showing
of fight pictures, only can serve
to promote or aggravate the color
feeling throughout the entire
country."
Preachers are Busy
The fight was denounced by
many preachers in their sermons
last Sunday, the main speaker
being Rev. Mr. Meyer, of the
Regents park chapel, who started
the movement agair.st the proposed battle at Earls' Court.
Mr. Meyer protested that prize
fighting was demoralizing and brutal and also that it would embitter
the feeling of the whites agair.st
the blacks in America, South
Africa and India. "Of course, I
shan't do it, but I would dearly
like to break into the ring and say
to the big negro and the white
champion: 'You are brothers,' "
said Mr. Meyer.
It is reported that Winston
Churchill, the home secretary, is
consulting the law officers with
regard to the legal aspects of the
case.
Johnson is "Tetchy"
Johnson, when interivewed in
Paris, said that he was "tetchy"
because the English papers were
saying everything bad about him,
and that he was not getting fair
play. The London fight, he said,
was  a  matter  of  indifference  to

Winnipeg, Sept. 28.—W. P. Hinton, general passenger agent of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, who
returned from an inspection trip
of the western lines on Saturday,
stated that he expected the Edmonton-Calgary line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific would be opened
this year. The contractors have
experienced considerable trouble
in getting supplies, notably steel
for the large bridge over the Red
Deer river near Alix but now this
bridge is finished and the structural
steel gang has gone to a bridge
on the Brazeau coal branch. Steel
laying south of Alix is proceeding
at the rate of about three miles

far enough toward Calgary to
keep ahead of the track-layer.

other places which would not
object to a match.
"It's just like this. You don't
want me to win, and that's the
truth," said Johnson. "But I am
going to win. That's what I came
here for. Longsdale is sore at me
because I would not fight for
$6,000 at the National Sporting
club. Why should I fight for
$6,000 when I can get $15,000?
I am over here for the money.
If the fight is stopped in London
we can fight in Paris and get a
bigger crowd."
