According to Hughes the vein ex
tends for ten miles and is over a mile
wide. The rock lies about ten feet be
low the surface. So thick is the metal
that the yellow flakes can be plainly
seen sprinkled thru the rock with the
naked eye. Hughes says the find is so
rich that he expects to.sea 20,000 pros
pectors in the valley the next twelve
The story of the find was brought
down by C. J. Graham, who is a fel^
low prospector of the lucky man.
Hughes, according to Graham, lias been
prospecting for some time and ran a
gasolene engine for several farmers in
the Birling district. During his spare
time he was washing for gold, for his
practical eye had shown him what the
settlers had not seen. He kept his finds
carefully to himself for several months.
The old river bed where the discov
ery was made lies in a desolate country
and the soil in the surrounding dis

homesteaded there. There are plenty

Regular Babel of Tongues.
The assize courts of Manitoba this
fall have been deluged with charges
of serious offenses, the Winnipeg court
alone having over eighty indictments
before it, the majority of whom were
foreigners. In the Winnipeg court a
special corps of trained interpreters
had to be employed, namely, Kussian,
Euthenian, Galician. Hungarian,
French, German and Polish, as many
as four interpreters being at work in
the court at the same time.
One peculiar case now in progress,
Correspondence of The Journal.
Ottawa, Ont., Nov. 21.The premiers
of Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan
.have formally presented to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier their respective claims to the
unorganized territory south of Hudson
bay, known as^'Xyewairn. Stripped of
all verbiage it is\lear that what each
of the three provinces wants is access
to the one real port of the entire coast
of Hudson bayPort Churchill..
Their claims are so antagonistic that
it was quite impossible for them to ap-
__ proach the federal government with a
scheme for the division of the territory
which would be satisfactory to all
three. It remains for Sir Wilfrid
Laurier to settle the question.
It is safe to say that he has'not often
had a more delicate problem to. solve.
He knows, of course, that behind the
provincial premiers are the people of
the three provinces, each convinced
that their particular case is beyond ar
gument. And the situation is compli
cated by the fact that one of the pro
vincial governments, that of Saskatche
wan, is liberal, while the other two are
conservative. If he favors Saskatche
wan, ho will raise a howl of protest in
Manitoba and Ontario if he turns
down Saskatchewan, his own liberal
supporters in provinces not directly in
volved in the present dispute will be
This Might Be Acceptable.
Port Churchill being the crucial
point, there is. just one solution that
might perhaps prove acceptable to the
three provinces: extend Saskatchewan's
northern boundary due east to the
shores of Hudson bay make the
Churchill river the boundary between
Saskatchewan and Manitoba," and ex
tend Manitoba's eastern boundary
northeast until it strikes the bay at
Port Churchill then create a small
federal district or neutral zone around
Port Churchill, and give the three
provinces equal access to the port.
This plan would give Ontario an im
mensely larger section of Keewatin
than either of the other provinces, but
it would solve the problem of the ocean
ort, in they are .all so keenly
So far as the division of the unor
ganized territory is concerned, the con
census here, and probably thruout the
Dominion, is that Manitoba is entitled
to the preference. Historically as well
as geographically she has a just claim
to her northern hinterland. It is recog
nized that she has been unfairly dealt
with in the division of territory. In
1881 her boundaries were enlarged so
as to give her an area of 154,000
square miles, but a subsequent judg
ment of the imperial privy council, in
the famous provincial boundaries case,
reduced the area to 73,732 square miles.
When it is remembered, that Saskat
chewan has an area of a*quarter of a
readjust the disproportion in the area
of Manitoba, while at the same time
giving all three provinces access to
Port Churchill, and consequently an
equal interest in the development of
that great Canadian transportation
project, the Hudson Bay route, it will
satisfy all parties. Incidentally it
will wm eternal fame, for from present
ap,jearances it would take more than
the wisdom of Solomon to solve this

PEOFITABLE DAIRY FAEMING.
One of the leading shippers of Can
adian dairy produce estimates the value
$32 500 000, of which $25,000,000 are
credited to cheese and nearly $7,400.-
000 to butter. .The export of cheese
does not equal the banner year. 1903
when over $28,000,000 were realized
but Canada has every reason to feel
satisfied with the,result.
It is not so many years ago that
Canada was importing cheese from the
United States.. Today her shipments
to England far exceed those of all the
rest of the world. The cheese industry
has developed in a marvelously short
time from a negligible quantity to one
ot the most important items in the ex
port trade of the dominion.

Some interest is taken here in Mr

that the next move should come from
