Opening of Hockey Season
The lid of the hockey season
was lifted last Sunday by a game
between the Robarts ancl Pioneers of the City League, which
ended in a victory for Robarts'
team by a score of 4 lo 2.
A very good crowd was in attendance, considering the extremely cold weather and that
it was the first game of the
The game was closely contested and the teams were very
evenly matched. All the players
were full of "pip" from whistle
to whistle.
The senior players showed exceptionally good form, and a fast
team in the Senior League looks
very promising.
Capt. Walter Flynn of the
Pioneers being interviewed after
the game said he was not in the
least disheartened over losing
the first game of the season, He
was very much pleased with the
showing of his team, it being
their first appearance on the ice.
He felt confident that with a few
more minutes of playing his
team would have pulled out victorious.
Captain Robarts, while very
much pleased with a victory in
the first game, was not overconfident and predicted a hard
fight for the City League cup.
The next City Leaeue game
will be between the Merchants
and the Pioneers, and the puck
will be faced off at three o'clock
sharp tomorow.
JPort of Colonel Thompson who

J w people were not ina

, anv iWree of intelligence.
"ereis "well defined senti
ment that conditions have materially changed in the past six
months ar.d that it were well to
secure an expression from the
people in all parts of the area to
be incorporated as to their wishes
in the matter; and without doubt
this will bo secured shortly after
the first of January, before the
legislature convenes.
Colonel Thompson very clearly
pointed out that to incorporate
such a large area into one incor- (
poration, with its manifold water'
and sewage problems, was a
large question, fraught with
much responsibility and financial
burdens. It has been suggested
that to start with a much smaller area in thc Prince George
section and later spread out to
the greater city would be far
safer and involve less expense;
of development. In any event,
the people have a right to be heard
in these matters and not rushed
into an action that might later
involve municipal failure by
reason of having taken on too
great a load at the start.
The Herald on several occasions has pointed out that incorporation was not to be a cure for
all our ills, and that it was too
important a step to be taken
without much thought and consideration. There are too few
mon — if there are any in our
midst to whom these matters are
sufficiently familiar to commit
the people as a whole irretrievably to incorporation. We might
ask the question: IS THERE A
We doubt it. Many think the
time has not yet come to unite
three widely scattered towns
with large undeveloped areas
between into one, considering
their different conditions, interests and surroundings.
overeignty of Turkey
Overjgypt^ Terminated.
100,000 Austrians Killed ancl Wounded
In Conflict with Servians
London, Dec. 18th.-His Britanic Majesty's principal
secretary ot State for foreign affairs gives notice that in
view ot state, war arising out of the action of Turkey,
bgypt is placed under the protection of His Majesty, and
will henceforth constitute a British Protectorate. Sovereignty of Turkey over Egypt is thus terminated and His
Majesty's Government will adopt all measures necessary
for the defence of Egypt and protection of its inhabitants
and interests. The King has been pleased to approve the
appointment of Lieut. Col. Sir Arthur Henry MacMahon to
be His Majesty's High Commissioner for Egypt.
Petrograd, Dec. 18th.—It is officially announced that the
German armoured cruiser Preidrich Karl was sunk during
recent sortie in Baltic. Two thirds of her crew are said to
have perished, about 200 men having been saved.
Berlin, via London, Dec. 18th.-It is officially reported
that the German vessels which bombarded Hartlepool and
Scarborough were hit several times by coast batteries but
the damage was slight.
Petrograd, Dec. 18th-In direction of Mlawa our cavalry
and troops are charging energetically the beaten Germans.
Several of our corps have already crossed the frontier,
during which we have captured prisoners, guns, and war
material. During past week the garrisons at Przomyal has
attempted several sorties al! of which were repulsed inflicting heavy losses on the enemy. During one of these
sorties we captured several hundred prisoners and guns.
Vienna.-It has been admitted that the Austrians' killed
ancl wounded in defeat by the Servians number 100,000.
Public sentiment and indignation are strong against the
leaders in attack, especially against Field Marshall Potiorek,
who eight days ago accepted from the Emperor high decoration after telegraphing that the Servians had been completely defeated, and he would be in Nish in three weeks.
London.—No official confirmation of the rumor of the
sinking of the German cruisers which bombarded Hartlepool, Scarborough and Whitby on the 16th inst.

district, and as the town is developed and built up, it will be
more quickly recognized that
every new avenue opened to
communication and settlement

the greater city of this Interior
of British Columbia.
The new avenue was made
possible by the visit of Honorable Thomas Taylor, Minister of
Public Works, last summer, who
quickly saw its advantage to the
town ' and recommended an
appropriation in executive council to cover the cost, which, added to an appropriation from the
Hudsons Bay Land Department,
completed the work.

Sank Stocks Held
By Numerous Hands
Ottawa.—The probating of the
will of the late John Manuel, of
Ottawa, has revealed the fact
that one of the least known citizens of the capital, and a man
practically unknown outside of
the capital, was one of the heaviest holders in the Dominion of
('anada bank stocks. His
estate included the following:
Bank of Quebec, 31 shares;
Bank of B. N. A., 418 shares;
Merchant's Bank, 985 shares;
Bank of Commerce, 3,148 shares;
Bank  of  Ottawa,   812  shares.
A Dominion bluebook recently
issued gives a complete list of
bank stockholders in Canada.
This list rather dissipates the
theory of the late Hon. H. R,
Emmerson that the Canadian
banks are controlled by a few
men. There is probably not a
Canadian bank in which the
small stockholders do not own
the majority of the stock. Probably on account of its age, but
whatever the reason, a surprising amount of the stock of the
Bank of Montreal is owned by
widows and spinsters or held in
trust for children and families.
The stock is held all over the
world, although, of course, the
majority of the-stock is held in
the city of Montreal. The list
of stockholders in Canadian
Banks runs from men living in
Fiji Islands to Egypt, and from
stenographers to barons.
Carnegie Opposed to
Truce for Christmas
Washington. — Andrew Carnegie, a White House caller, expressed decided opposition to a
truce in the European war during the Christmas holidays. He
declared that it would be un-
christianlike and immoral to stop
the fighting and then begin it
again. He added that he could
not believe that any nation which
adopted such a suggestion was
doing it sincerely.
Mr. Carnegie gave it as his
opinion that the military caste in
Germany was responsible for the
war, but that at the time hostilities broke out the Kaiser was ill
and opposed to the war.
"The Kaiser has told me that
he took the greatest pride in the
fact that he reigned for many
years without being involved in
war," said Mr. Carnegie, "But
he was surrounded by a ring of
militarists who were eager for
war at any price."
For the men in the trenches,
Mr, Carnegie expressed the
greatest sympathy. "Thev had
nothing to do with bringing
about the terrible conflict," he
said. His voice trembled and
tears appeared in his eyes when
he spoke of the horrors of war.
"All the men in the trenches can
do is to obey orders and shoot
each other down.   It is terrible
Fire Benefit and Dance South
Fort George Fire Department
The dance and benefit given
by the ladies of the Sunshine
Society of South Fort George in
aid of the Fire Department Wednesday night was a success not
only from its financial results
but from its social aspects. A
very enjoyable time was had by
everybody, and numerous requests were made for a repetition next month. It is true that
dances have not been as numerous this season as usual, and as
a result the people have not been
able to get together as in the
past on these very pleasant occasions. Without doubt, the Fire
Department dances will be a
feature of the winter season,
The four sources from which
the Fire Department secured its
benefit Wednesday night, although simple and inexpensive
and burdening no one in particular,  was nevertheless effective.
The refreshments were donated by the merchants and
ladies of the town, while the
tickets were sold under the
auspices of the Sunfhine Society
who also had in hand the management of the refreshments
and the da-c^
The sale nf ags was an original thoutr t for this section and
added splendidly to the receipts.
The drawing of prizes added
to the diversions of the evening.

and atomizer, Russel Walker; "
third prize, box of cigars, E P.

that so many widows and
orphans are being made because
a few men wanted to go to war.
It is terrible that all the scientists and other men of culture in
Germany are not allowed to advise the Kaiser instead of the
small clique of military men."
Speaking of (lermany's part in
the war, Mr. Carnegie said he
believed the Emperor was as ill
when the conflict broke out as
he is now. He expressed great
sympathy for the Emperor, and
said he knew his heart must be
broken over the break in his
peaceful reign.
The ability to get credit haa started
many a man on the financial toboggar.

existence upon the importation of its foodstuffs, etc.

is not actually going back. What! The reserve officers taken into
occupation of building, round a common centre, the city
which will some day grace this neighborhood, we find a
people divided. For years opposing factions have fought
bitterly for private interests, and still the same inharmonious situation exists. Unnecessary fuel has been added
to the flames by the ridiculously absurd station-site question, and the matter is still unsettled.
Instead of an efficient land-colonization service, striving at all times to locate desirable settlers and place them
satisfactory on open pre-emption land, we are convinced
of the statement that the locating of a suitable piece of
land is more difficult to the new-comer than the finding of
the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Stretching from a point directly east of the southern
limits of South Fort George, south for a distance of nearly
forty miles, is one of the finest bodies of untouched farmland, suitable for diversified farming, to be found anywhere; nearly a quarter of a million acres of it. And in j blamed if he hesitates to go into

the market for Canadian butter
is unreasonably restricted, lhe
home market could consume only
a fraction of the output if this
branch of farming were developed in proportion to others. And
once this home market were
supplied, the surplus must be
shipped across the Atlantic to
compete with Danish butter in
the British market, or sent to
the United States to be sold
under a tax of six cents per
pound. Not only so; the moment
there was a surplus the price in
Canada would be at the dictation
of the butter dealer. The farmer knows this and need not be
cessful he was the more speedily
and certainly would he encounter

of them have lost two thirds of
their captains. Many officers
are only slightly wounded. Thev
will return to the front, But as
the war goes on, few of the original officers will be left. "Two
years hence," writes Major Leh-
mann, "the army will be commanded by promoted non-coms.
These men will excel, because
they will have had practice in
fighting which will replace theoretical training, But the aristocrat with leadership in his
blood will have disappeared.
Every aristocratic name is in
the list of killed end wounded.
Among famous military and political names I find Bismarck,
Moltke, Buelow, Bluecher, Bre-
dow, Kleist a'nd Stein. All the
lost officers of these names are
kinsmen of heroes of past wars
or politics. In the northern
pravinces all the males of several families have perished. Worst
are conditions in the west of
Brandenburg Mark, and in Pom-
gardens. These pre-emptors' places are of inferior quality
and are badly scattered. They are found mostly on the
lower slopes of the heavily timbered h
valley on the east, and are the remnants left after the
cream of the district was secured by the moneyed interests. The prices asked for lands throughout this section
average over $25.00 per acre, which is prohibitive.
Before the completion of the railroad and the inaug-
eration of a railway freight service, a great many tofts of L ,
winter freight were hauled from Quesnel over the 110 '"
mile wagon road from that point to this.   This road runs

Prince George and Fort George. YESTERDAY, after a long.lon .
silence, there came to us just
a brief message from the sea. In
a few words the Admiralty announced that submarine E9 had
paid a fleeting visit to the enemy's
front door and returned leaving
the enemy the poorer by one
destroyer. Now probably the
great silence will come upon the
sea again, and we shall begin
once more to forget that great
Navy that faded away in the
night so many weeks ago.
Just an incident, that is all,
a small bag for such perilous
hunting, we may think. Still,
game is scarce outside of the
German harbors; would Germany put her fleets to sea there
would be bigger bags to record,
As it is we must be content with
what we can get. But Britain's
Navy has won a stupendous victory already.
Out in the grey-green seas that
mark our eastern frontier, the
grey ships that fly the white ensign are patrolling day and night.
We hear little of them, but their
task must be a trying one. "The
|Great Monotony " was a phrase
|coined aboard one of those ships
to designate the great war.
For the men who serve in those
; ships there is no rest, no freedom
from anxiety, no hours off from
the trenches to be spent a mile
behind the firing line, in comparative safety. The men of the
grey ships are in the firing line
day and night,
They know it. At any moment
the death from beneath that
claimed the German destroyer off
Emdem may claim them, as it
has claimed hundreds of their
fellows already. Hitherto their
share of the excitement and glory
of action has been of the most
tsiuim  ur cuun, in  angry sea or »#im»wui*,
blinding fog, just patrolling up;
and down with death a possibility
at any second, and they are winning a great victory every hour
of the day.
It is over four months since
that grey fleet faded away. Who
can tell one tithe of the suffering
and misery those months have
wrought in the peaceful homes
of Belgium and France ? They
have seen one country laid waste,
one nation driven almost to despair by a neighbor who had no
quarrel with her but that she
would not surrender her national
honor at the bidding of a bully's
Here at home life goes on much
the same as ever. The trains
come and go, the stores and
markets open and sell at normal
prices, our petty amusements go
on — there are no cinemas or
theatres in Louvain just now-
our seaside piers are gay at nights
the excursion boats make their
daily trips, the big liners sail to
all parts of the world with hardly
an interruption in the programme
laid down for them months ago.
In London, the people go on their
ways with only a darkened street
to tell them the world is at war.
That is the victory the grey
ships have won for us.
Were it not for Britain's Navy
our ports would be as Hamburg
is to-day—a silent, desolate city
that five months ago and less was
one of the busiest towns of the
world. Even though our own
countryside were not scarred with
smoking ruins our homes would
be in misery, Famine would be
near if not already a real thing.

New G.T.P. Territory
The educational department of
the government of British Columbia is taking active measures
to cope with the rapid development in the territory recently
opened up by the completion of
the Grand Trunk Pacific. Mr.
G. H. Gower, educational inspector, has been actively engaged
during the past month in inaugurating schools between Prince
George and Prince Rupert.
Since leaving Prince Rupert,
Mr. Gower has established
schools at Haysport and Copper
River, on the Skeena, one at
Endako and ore at Stellaco, five
miles east of Endako, -_6 at
Vanderhoof, one at Chilco, on
the opposite side of the Nechaco and east of Vanderhoof, and
one at Mapes, about eighteen
miles south and east of Vanderhoof. He has also recommended
the opening of a school at McAllister, about twelve miles north
of Soda Creek.
"My trip," said Inspector
Gower, "has been a revelation
to me. I have traveled along
the line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, stopping at all points
where schools are located, and
visiting others where requisitions
have been made to establish
schools, and everywhere I was
impressed with the splendid
valleys of agricultural land, the
development of which is going
on apace. The Nechaco valley
particularly appealed to me; and
there is bound to be a tremendous trade developed."

Vancouver.—From all the investigations being made by Vancouver lawyers- and about half
the legal fraternity of the city is
working on the ease in some way
or other-it begins to look as if
it would be a very long time, if
at all, before depositors set any
returns from the amounts they
had at their credit with the Dominion Trust company. The
worst feature, from the standpoint of depositors, is that it is
quite clear that from neither its
federal nor provincial charter
did the company have any power
to accept deposits. The case
appears to Le on all^fours with
the famous Birkbeck case of
London four years ago, when
ten millions of pounds were accepted in deposits without legal
authorization to'accept the money. The consensus of legal
opinion here appears to be that
the general creditors have a first
claim on the assets of the Dominion Trust. The company
owes between two and three
million dollars to these creditors,
and there are nominally six million dollars of assets to pay these
debts with. But with the shrinkage of assets and costs of liquidation it does not look as if there
would be a great deal left after
the creditors are paid off. Then
the shareholders and depositors,
following the privy council decision in the Birkbeck case, come
in for equal shares of what is
Undoubtedly this new position
of the depositors will come as
rather a  hard shock to them.
