Ingencia Placer Fields Re-
ported to Rival the
Klondyke
District  Capable of Being
Reached in Twenty Days
From Hazelton
Alex McQeen, of Victoria, who is
well known in Grand Forks, having
formerly been a resident of this
city, has received word from George
Barnes and Gus Rosenthal, two experienced miners whom a Victoria
syndicate sent into the Ingencia
country last February. Their wire
from Hazelton states that the new
gold field is another Klondyke and
that pay dirt averaging 820 per
shovel is being taken out on McConnell creek.
The men located claims for the
syndicate sending them and then
hastened to Hazelton, which is 220
miles distant and capable of being
reached from the creek in twenty
days by pack horse.
McConnell creek seems the best
spot, and here seventy men are located. The greatest depth yet attained is thirty feet, and bedrock
has not been aeacbed. Sluicing is
expected to be in full swing shortly.
BREVITIES
The secretary of the local lodge of
Knights of Pythias has received the
following letter from Victoria: "The
Secretary, Knights of Pythae, Grand
Forks, B.C.—Dear Sir: I beg to acknowledge receipt of cheque for
$340, being the results of an entsr-
tainment given by the Knights of
Pythias and Oddfellows of Grand
Forks. The money has been placed

has entered suit against Mr. Shallenberger for $50,000 damages for
letters written, she alleges, for the
purpose of injuring her. Mrs. Parsons was in Greenwood about six
weeks ago, and this suit apparently
follows a threatened one for misrepresentation. Mr, Shallenberger is
well known in camp, being one of
the original owners of the Crescent
mine.—Greenwood Times.
The Dominion Copper company's

in very good shape for opening up
last week. The water had been kept
pumped out. and many improvements had been made to the fittings
of the mine.
Last week thirty tons of ore were
shipped from the Crescent mine, in
the Skylark high-grade camp, to the
Trail smeller. The ore was from
stoping done on the 225-foot level
earlier in the year, the mine not being in operation at present.
About eighty men are now em

eamp in Deadwood. The right of
way is being cleared, but the main
part of the work is being held up for
some necessary materials which the
C. P. R should furnish.
It is reported that the plans of thp
pronioti rs of theGreen wood-Phoenix
long and deep tunnel are being
shaped up, and it is thought that
the launching of the project, in its
ii i'itl slage, will soon be succes fully
accomplished.
The men who go to work at the
Emma mine will ha*/e a postoffice at
their door, as the Dominion government has established one at Denoro.
The postmastership has been given
to William Phillips, who conducts
the store there.
Recently a strike of some 500 men
employed by the International Coal

How the Hindoos Are to Be
Kept Out of British
Columbia
Mackenzie King's   Report
Submitted to Parliament
The report of Mackenzie King on
the result or his mission to England
to confer with the British authorities
on the subject; of immigration to
Canada from India •nd the Orient
generally was presented to parliament a few days ago, together with
the orders in-council just passed giving effect to Mr. King's recommendations. It marks the satisfactory
solution of one of thc largest and
most complex problems confronting
the mutual interests of Canada an I
the empire. A lull and frank interchange of views between the British
and Canadian governments has resulted in the adoption oj a mutual
policy of cooperation in which Great
Britain's policy of protection of the
native races of India harmonizes
with Canada's policy of keeping the
Dominion a white man's country,
while at the same time there is obviated the necessity of legislative
act'on which might reflect on Great
Britain's subjects in India, and render still more critical there a situation already pregnant with danger.
The solution of the problem of restricting the immigration of Hindoos
is based on a clause of the Indian
immigration act which prevents natives leaving India under contract to
labor in any outside country unless
the said country is on the list of
countries scheduled in the act as being those which have made Jaws considered by tbe lieutenantgovernor-
in-council as adequate for the protection of natives of India to' stay in
that country. Canada is not on this
scheduled list. Therefore the bringing in of contract labor from India
to British Columbia, the main source
of alarm for a future inllux, is contrary to the laws of India. The
order-in-council just passed makes
all immigrants liable to deportation
who come in violation of the laws of
their own country. This shuts out
contract labor immigration from India. Those who came voluntarily arc
that the arrangement as set* forth is
one which finds its justification on
grounds of liuniiiiiitv as strong as are
the economic reasons by which it is
supported. The liberty of British
subjects in India is safeguardi d
rather thnn curtailed. The Irnil.i-
tional policy of Biituin in respect to
the native races of India bus been
kept in mind, and the necessity ol
enacting legislation either in India
nr in Canada which might appear lo
reflect on fellow British subjects in
another part of the empire has been
wholly avoided. In this, -as was to
be expected, Canada has not only
the sympathy and understanding,
but the hearty co-operation of the
authorities in Great Britain and India as well."
Examination of Employees
Glenn E. Votaw, formerly a Grent
Northern conductor in the Boundary
district, arrived iu the city lust Sunday in a special cur attached to tbe
through freight. Mr. Votaw wns accompanied by two other Great North
ern employees, the three constituting
a board appointed by tho company to
travel over the entire system to examine and instruct employees in the
rules recently issued by the road.
On their arrival here a "school" was
held in the passenger station, tliere being about thirty "pupils" present.
Those that had to go through the examination included conductors, engineers, firemen, station agents," telegra
phers, in fact everybody connected
with the road. The examiners stilted
that tile employees at this point
showed a better familiarity with the
rules than any other set uf men they
had examined since they left the Pacific tenminus. The examiners left
foi the west over the V., V. it E. immediately after the close of the
"sehool." They are due to arrive in
St. Paul about the 1st of July. Railway men in this city consider Mr.
Votaw's selection as one of the members of the examining board a great
distinction for this section of the country, although they recognize the fact
that no man better fitted for the position could have beeu chosen.
Bowser at Greenwood Assizes
Hon. W. J. Bowser, K.C., provincial attorney-general, will conduct
the assizes which open a Greenwood
shortly. Mr. Bowser will represent
the crown in the well known Cedio
case. Ceilio is the Italian who must
stand his trial on the charge of causing the death of Louise King when
tho Niagara   hotel   was   dynamited.
It will be remembered that Cedio was
shutout ot Canada by a provision | ciiptured in Salt Litke City last win-
which requires them to have in their ter, extradited and brought baok here

A. C. Flumerfe'.t Addresses
" Canadian Club on Our
Re?ources
The Wealth of the Piovince
Will Take It to the
Forefront
A. C. Flumerfelt was the guest of
honor at the Canadian club luncheon
in the Pender hall, Vancouver, last
Monday night.and his thirty-minute
address nn the resources of British
Columbia was crowded with facts.
British Coliimbiu had greater advantages than any other area on the
continent of America, said -the
-speaker, and Vancouver wns without
a parallel in the history of Oanadian
cities. They had only to look at the
bank clearings, building permits,
postage statistics and inland revenue
returns to realize the wonderful
strides the province was making!
Among other things needed by the
province was a refinery to treat not
only our own mineral wealth, but
also a large proportion of that of the
western states. British Columbia
possessed the largest area of timber
iu the known world, but Mr. Flumerfelt urged tbe necessity of a properly constituted forestry department
to preserve this wealth.
He dealt with the mining and
fishing industries, and advocated
the creation of what might he called
n sinking fund to get expert opinion
as to the best method of utilizing the
wealth of the timber and the fish.
Liberals Meet
• A meeting of the Liberal association wus held in tile association rooms
on First street last Monday night for
the purpose of discussing matters in

for a public building. There was a
good attendance. A committee consisting of Messrs. H. A. Sheads, N. L.
Mclnnes, John Donaldson, B. Le-
quiine and Geo. Rutherford was appointed to inspect a number of sites,
and to secure options on tbem, and lo

Federal Election Act
Duncan Boss, during the debate on
Aylesworih's election bill in the house
last Monday, declared that the man
who had a right to vole must look to
the Dominion for a federal vote. It
was absolutely necessary for the Do.
minion to have a franchise of its own.
He declared that Dr. Roche, F. D,
Monk and Hun. G. I'i. Foster had all
changed their views, as they formerly
pressed against all ptovincial lists.
He declared the act, as he understood
it, merely provided for a revision by a
cderal revising judge. Mr. Ross said
that in British Columbia the game of
politics wus played fairly. Out there
they did not buy votes, switch ballots
and the lists were fairly honest, though
it was true that they were loaded
with absentees and dead men's names.
But silica British Columbia had an
attorney-general who would attack
the king if he could make political
capital out of it, he jdid not think it
proper or honest that a returning officer should be subject to an attack by
so partisan a minister. ParticularAttention

FRIDAY, MAY 15, 1908
The "thin red line" is not such a
frightful bugbear as the Conservative press is endeavoring to make the
public believe it is. It simply means
tbat Liberal ollicers have erased
names that did not belong on voters'
lists witb a thin red line. There is
no crime in this, as the names could
be readily read alter their erasure.
It is an infinitely better method
than that employed by the Conservatives, which is to use a thick black
line—complete obliteration of the
name—making rectification impossible in the event of a mistake.
The revelations which are daily
being made in the case of Mrs.
Leila Guinea!?, the Indiana murderess, are of such a horrible character
that is again opportune to question
whether civilization ennobles or
degrades human nature. This woman, to whose door fifteen murders
have already been traced, appears
to have practised homicide simp y
for the lust of gold. It is n strange
and gruesome ciise,iinilthc details nie
revolting. It is also strange, as an
American paper puts it, that in the
country and in the era which boast
of woman's highest development a
woman should bear the obloquy of
being the nation's worst example of
a moral mobster.

Public money is being wisely expended, not to enrich the few, but
for the benefit of all the people. This
is tbe surest test of honest and wise
administration, that public money
is expended in the public interest
and Ior the general good. The government, with the many problems
in tho older part of Canada, is not
unmindful of the west. The building of the Grand Trunk Pacific is
being pushed on with all possible
speed. Everything that the govern
ment can do to further this enterprise has been done in response to
the mandate of tho people ex pressed
in the general of 1904. The Dominion is of vast extent and the needs
from various points are diversified.
To solve the problems presented and
meet the desires of thc people from
the Atlantic to the Pacific is the object of thc present government.
PEES0NAL
It is to be hoped that the members of the loeal Liberal association
realize thc importance of taking
prompt steps in the matter of
the selection of a site for a
public building. It is therefore
essential that all members attend the
meeting in Alberta hall next Wednesday evening. It would also be
well if everybody cast aside their
sectional jealousies on this occasion
and acted for the best welfare of the
city.
Tiik Hedley. Gazette, referring to
the attempt of the editor of the Vancouver Sunset to knock the prospects
of railway connection to the coast
forsoulhern British Columbia, says:
"The lust issue of the Saturday Sun-
sot contains a sensational story of J.
J. Hill's intentions concerning the
Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern.
Whatever grounds the Sunset may
have for claiming betrayal of McLean Bros., whose cause the editor
has taken up, the article falls down
liy when it enters the domain of
prophecy and declares that Hill will
not complete the road to the coast."

A Bad Memory
The Saturday Sunset's zeal for McLean Bros., whose brief it has taken
up, has led it to make some bold assertions that will be veVy difficult to
back up. To hold that because J. J.
Hill, in 1902, expressed unwillingness
to build through British Columbia to
the coast, he cannot intend to carry
outan agreement which he made in
1906 to do so, is to talk rank nonsense. People are allowed to change
their minds in three years—and why
not J. J. Hill? And, again, when the
Sunset says that neither J.J. Hill nor
inyone authorized to speak' for him
ever said that the Great Northern intended to build over the distance ly
ing between the Similkameen and
Hope, it conveys the idea that it must
either confine its reading wholly to
the columns of the Sunset, or its editor has a very bad memory for things
he has read.—Hedley Gazette.

Ad Otter Which Meets the Special Wants of All Classes of Readers
The Western Canadian reading public is made up chiefly of these classes
Persons who have lived in the West for a lengthy period and are out and out
Westerners, and recent arrivals from the Old Country, from the United
States and from Eastern Canada.
Perhaps no one newspaper could cater with complete satisfaction to all these
classes, but by this combination offer every special need is met •
The Weekly Free Press and Prairie Farmer gives a complete record week
by week of all happenings in the Western Provinces. In addition it has special
departments for American and British settlers. The Family Herald and
Weekly Star supplies the former resident of Eastern Canada with news of the
Eastern portion of the Dominion in detail, and the Orand Forks Sun provides
the local and Boundary news, which you cannot do without.

Yukon Opinion of Lawson
"I would rather face my Maker

The Granby Consolidated
Stevens' Copper Handbook is nn
annual volume whose appearance is
welcomed by copper workers the
world over. As the work is of one
man, it is a monument of industry
and intelligent discrimination. It
is reliable and comprehensive. Of
dubious enterprises it expresses its
opinion unhesitatingly. Hence it is
of extraordinary value to the investor.
It is pleasant to read Mr. Stevens'
warm praise of a Canadian copper
concern. In concluding a detailed
description of the Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting company's
mines and works at Phoenix and
(irand Forks, B.C., Mr. Stevens
speaks thus of the company's execution:
"Both mine and smelter have been
brought to a high state of efficiency,
and the cost sheet is one of which
any directorate well might be proud.
The Gin11by is one of the few copper
properties of the world of which a
careful investigation leads to the ver
dict that there is nearly everything
to commend, and scarcely anything
to criticise."
Mr. Stevens' praise is worth something.—Canadian Mining Journal.
The Brehany Company
The appearance of the great
American soprano, Louise Brehany,
and her talented associates in a ballad ind operatic concert at the
Grand Forks opera house, Friday
night, May 15th, will be a rare

outside of the metropolitan cities.
This charming soprano has long been
recognized as America's greatest
songstress. There is no other soprano, not even in the grand opera
ranks of Italy or America, that can
boast the marvelous range of Louise
Brehany. The other members of
Miss Brehany's organization are
equally famous, both in Europe and
America, in their respective parts.
