General Meeting Held Wednesday to Organize Club is
Very Enthusiastic One—First Game to be
Played on Christmas Day.
At a meeting held in the Herald office last Wednesday night
the Prince George Hockey Club
was organized for the coming
season. A large number of hockey enthusiasts attended the meeting, and, judging from the interest shown, the city should see
some good hockey this winter.
There will be but two teams in
the local league, South Fort
George and Prince (leorge. Fort
George will be unable to place a
team in the field this year, owing to so many of her players
having left this vicinity. The
following officers were appointed:
Honorary president, Mayor W.
G. Gillett; president, Rev. H. L.
Morrison; vice-president, Aid.
P. M. Ruggies; secretary-treasurer, R. R. Walker; manager,
Reg. Brehaut; three additional
executive committee members,
Alex, Wimbles, A. M. Ramsay,
and Dr. R. W. Alward.
A meeting of the executives of
both clubs was held in the Herald office last night for the purpose of drawing up a schedule
and attending to other matters
of organization. Prince won the
toss, and the first game of the
schedule will be played in the
new rink here, corner Fourth and
Victoria, on Christmas Day. The
second game will be played in
South Fort George. New Year's
Day. The balance of the games
will be played as follows :

Editor,   Herald.—In  replying
to personal remarks made by Mr,!
Parker Williams,  in connection
with certain coal measures situ-
ated in the Peace River district,
I wish to say that the statement
made by Mr.  Williams is very
misleading.   There  are  at  the
present time several coal fields j
which have been discovered in;
this district, and taken up by!
different people. So I am informed; but my interests lie only in
the one which I  discovered  a!
number of years ago.  The statement that Neil Gething is another name  for  Bob  (Ireen is of
course only a slur.   As a matter;
of fact Mr.  Green owns but a'
small interest.   The Johnsons of;
Montreal, and Kootenay people;
are the chief owners.
Going back to the real history
of this coal, I may say it was
discovered on one of my prospecting and exploration trips
made a number of years ago, before the railways were even talked about in the north. At that
time it was a long way from
civilization and the luxuries of
city life. The coal was discovered after travelling on unknown
waters, through dangerous canyons and rapids, which gave us
more than one close shave of
having to "hit the long trail."
We had to travel in all kinds ol
weather, and, as all prospectors
know, were often wet from head
to foot, while snow and slush ice
in the fall were other unpleasant
In my opinion the prospector
should be encouraged in his efforts to discover the hidden mineral resources of the province,
The greatest assets of this large
province are probably undiscovered, but lie latent, as they have
for ages.
Mr. Williams attempted to tel
us what a lot of people are doing
in the p.. vin :e, but he neglected
to tell us about his great socialise
friend, Mr. Hawthornwaite, who
is purported to have made a half
million out of the natural resources of B. C. in a few years.
Yours respectfully,
With the exception of the holiday games the contests will be
pulled off at night. Ample light
for playing purposes will be provided by the management of both
rinks. Western playing rules
will be adopted.
Lists of players must be placed
in the hands of the executive
three days before the opening
game.   In case either team wishes to replace a man, or later in
the season add a new player for
any reason, it will be necessary
to place the name before the ex-1
ecutive three days  before  thej
game in which the new player is |
to take part.
Well, she's off ! A little boost
from each one will keep the ball
rolling nicely.
Premier Borden's
Trip Postponed,
Some weeks ago it was announced that Premier Borden
would make a tour of the West
in the interests of recruiting.
Nothing has been heard of it
since. This may mean that he
has decided to spend the time in
the East, where the need of
stirrinR-up is undoubtedly greater. In that e'vent the West will
balance the compliment against
the disappointment, and hope
that the largest possible measure
of success may attend his efforts.

lighter "River Clyde" and all have received honors for
their bravery.
Western Scots Praised.
Victoria has already gained
considerable publicity from the
wonderfully successful and rapid
mobilization of the 67th Western
Scots. This is amply demonstrated by the letters of approval the
commanding officer, Lieut.-Col.
Lome Ross frequently receives
from eastern points. Among the
latest of these missives is one
from Sir Hugh Graham, owner
of The Montreal Star. Nor are
these expressions of good will
confined to words alone, as in almost every case cheques for
quite substantial amounts are enclosed as tokens of appreciation
and to aid in the necessary special
equipment of the battalion. Quebec, Montreal and Toronto, as
well as other points in the eastern
parts of the Dominion are represented in these pleasant concrete
evidences of good will. Although
the battalion is the "Western
Scots" the East has been most
liberal in lending a helping hand
in solving some of the problems
that beset the pathway of those
who undertake, under present
conditions, to organize new fighting units.
King George Injured
While inspecting some of the
allied forces in France, Thursday,
King George suffered painful
injuries as a result of his horse
rearing ancl falling with him.
The King's condition is not serious.
Buried Shells.
An odd problem, which will be
encountered all through the
fighting territory after the war,
is that of guarding against the
exploding of shells which buried
themselves in the ground without
having exploded. In the section
of France along the Marne, where
the fighting vy#s sharp early in
the war and from which the
Germans retreated, the peasant;
farmers already have found this
danger to be real. A plowman ,
at any moment may strike a shell
that will explode with sufficient
force to kill him and his team.
Various solutions have been
suggessed, but the most promising is one worked out by a French
scientist and considered by the
Academy of Science. The plan
is to go all over the farms with
an electrical instrument that will I
give warning when a mass of
metal is near. Such an instru -i
ment is an old American inven- J
tion frequently used in laboratory ;
work. Some modifications of it |
were adopted by the French sci- ]
entist to fit it for field use, and
his apparatus requires the ser-1
vices of two men.
In practical tests on the old
battlefields he found that it ia
possible for two men to explore
an acre thoroughly in about one
hour, and locate every buried
shell near enough to the surface
to do any harm.
Despite the great amount of
work that has been done during
the past few months on the city
streets, some of them are in a
bad condition. George Street
will never be finished until a lay-
er of gravel has been spread. If
this were done this fall, we could '
look forward to good roads next i
Recruiting in Canada.
Counting the Cost.
The second year of war, it
seems, will cost about twice as
much as the first. Every official
statement that has been made
since this war began shows higher daily cost than its predecessor;
and this applies to all the belligerents. Figures for which a considerable degree of authority may
be claimed show that direct money cost can hardly be less than
seventy-five million dollars daily,
or, say, roughly, at the rate of
thirty billions a year. As yet,
no belligerent gives any sign of
exhaustion, Apparently they
can keep it up for another year,
or even two, Short of peace,
nothing except diminution in the
size of the armies by excess of
casualties over recruiting seems
likely to stop the uptrend of cost.
War   figures   have   all   been
meaningless, in that nobody can
resolve them into terms of ordinary experience.   To say the belligerents   are  spending   thirty;
billion dollars a year makes much
the same sort of impression as to
say they are spending fifteen,
for both sums sound fabulous.
There is nothing in previous ex- i
perience with which either can
be  compared.   Yet  these   long1
rows of numerals connote actual:
dollars.    It  is   real,    veritable
wealth that is being expended, i
and it is inconceivable that thej
United States can finally avoid
paying some share uf the bill.      j
That we can continue a high
pitch of prosperity in a world
that is growing poorer at such a
rate is not credible. Stocks may
boom and the banks overflow
with money now, but it is unlikely lhat any part of the world is
getting permanently richer.
A. B. Shubert, Inc., Ch'cago,
U. S. A., the largest Lome in the
world dealing exclusively in
American raw furs, submits a
very interesting article for the
r aders of the Piince Giorge
Herald :
"Millions of dollars will change
hands between the trappers and
dealers in Raw Furs during the
coming season. It is indeed
wonderful to contemplate, when
one thinks of the thousands upon
thousands of fur-bearing animals
killed every ,year throughout
Norih America, and still the supply does not seem to be wither-
i ig. Many people are of the
opinion that the fur industry is
becoming extinct, due to the fact
that the animals are being killed
off in many parts of the country.
This is not the case, in fact, it is
just the opposite of conditions as
they exist. The demand of fashion, the competition of the large
cirular houses and the general
utility of fur garments have sent
the price of furs up to such an
enormous height that a clever
trapper can make a small fortune, if he handles his catch
The fur trade has rightly been
called the greatest of our natural
resources. No industry, agricultural, mineral, or otherwise, has
baen the origin of as much wealth
t) this country and Canada as
: he fur industry. Before a single
■ield was cultivated, before a
single mine was opened, or a
single railroad constructed, the
fur-bearing animals of this country were the only source of revenue. This was one of the main
reasons for the rapid colonization
of our country, especially of the
West. It was the trappers' trail
that formed the path of the first
highway, and the trappers' fur
formed the first cargo that was
ever freighted on any of the inland waters of this country. It
was also the trapper's catch that
brought the first foreign wealth
to this country, and ever since,
we have been practically supplying the world with furs. No
other of our natural resources
have been productive for so long
a time or have yielded such an
aggregate wealth as the fur-
bearing animals ; so after all, the
fur industry is not dying out,
The fight is getting keener, and
this promises to be the banner

Word has been' received from
Lieut. W. F, Cooke, of the 67th
Western Scots, to the effect that
he expects to reach Prince (leorge
next Thursday. Lieut. Cooke
has taken the field-gun course at
Ottawa and is returning to join
his regiment at Victoria.
By instructions of the Hon.
Minister of Agriculture a free
distribution of superior sorts of
grain and potatoes will be made
during the coming winter and
spring to Canadian farmers. The
samples will consist of spring
wheat (about 5 lbs.), white oats
(about 4 ebs.), barley (about 5
lbs.), and field peas (about5lbs.)
These will be sent out from Ottawa,
A distribution of potatoes (in
.'? Ib. samples) will be carried oh j
from several of the Experimental
Farms, the Central Farm at Ottawa supplying only the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
Each application must be separate and must be signed by the
applicant. Only one sample of
grain and one of potatoes can be
sent to each farm. If both samples are asked for in the same
letter only one will be sent. Applications on any kind of printed
form cannot be accepted.
The destruction bv fire of the
cereal building at Ottawa, which
contained grain-cleaning machinery and a large stock of seed
grain for distribution, m.y make
it necessary to curtail the distribution to a certain extent. We
shall fill as many as possible o'
the applications which conform
to the rules; but requests received after the end of December
will probably be too late. Samples cannot be sent in response
to applications (no matter when
received) which fail to state
clearly the needs of applicant,
his experiences in crop-raising,
and the character of the soil or
which he intends to sow the seed.
All applications for grain (and
applications from the provinces
of Ontario and Quebec for potatoes) should be addressed to the
Dominion Cerealist, Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa. Such
applications require no postage,
If otherwise addressed, delay and
disappointment may occur.
Applications for potatoes from
farmers in any other province
should  be  addressed   (postage
Whisper it softly: A well-
known rancher, of indisputable
integrity, telephoned us this week
that a man in whose good faith
he had every confidence rushed
to his, the rancher's, home with
the story that off in the direction
of Six Mile Lake he had seen an
aeroplane. The machine was in
sight for two minutes, according
to the informant. Now to be
able to report the actual appearance in this district of an air
craft would be very interesting,
but we are strongly inclined to
believe that the supposed flying
machine was a wedge of Canada

Mr. Williams' arguments prove
that he has made a careful study
of conditions in this province and
has primed himself with an array
of augumentative material that
sounds interesting delivered from
the public platform. Indeed,
without careful preparation, it
would be difficult to satisfactorily
answer some of his charges.
Such is the case whenever controversy arises. A man may have
the right upon his side and yet
become completely bewildered by
the arguments of a clever opponent. Without question, many of
the statements made by Mr. Williams were in a sense misleading.

To bring order out of these,
perchance, chaotic remarks, it is
necessary to refer to the address
of Mr, Parker Williams, and the
comments that have resulted
Parker Williams is the leader
of the socialist party (if two
members may be called a party)
in the provincial parliament. In
his recent speech, delivered in
the Princess Theatre a week ago
last night, he managed to keep
clear of the discussion and propounding of so-called red-flag
socialistic doctrines. Their day
has passed. Mr. Williams contented himself with commonplace
generalities and rather weak
criticism of the party at present
in power, laying stress upon the
fact, at the same time, that, in
hissppinion, if the conservative
parly were ousted and the liberal
party assumed the reins of government, there would be little
improvement. The only hope is
to place the balance of power in
the hands of the socialists.

the race, and yet what would be Canada became a nation of

The visit of Parker Williams
has evidently proven a god-send
to the News. All week they have
managed to devote considerable
space daily to attempts to confirm and enlarge upon the socialist's charges. On Tuesday appeared "An Independent Press."
The gist of this article was that
whenever a paper declared its
independence it was at once
smothered. Tnis is the way it
was done, according to Park, r
Williams and the News :
"During the McBride-Bowseri Rates - $2.50 per day
regime, however, most of those'
which showed any signs of opposition to the powers that be or
erf independence, have been either
bought over, body and soul, or
choked out of existence. If a
paper is not with the government
every possible opportunity is taken to make it come over or to
fight it with money in unlimited
quantities from the public treasury, until it is forced to quit."
Such a statement is utterly absurd, and it would be exceedingly interesting to know of a single
instance where a paper in British
Columbia had been forced to the
wall, as the direct result of opposing the conservative government.

Recently the Hon. W. J. Bowser, who has just returned from
an extended tour of Eastern Canada, stated that while at Ottawa
he had conferred with Sir Robert
Borden in respect to the plans
which are being formulated by a!
commission for the training of
disabled soldiers and their em-
p'oyment, Mr. Bowser had received a telegram from Sir Richard stating that it would be impossible for the Minister of Education to be present at the conference and asking him to express to Sir Robert that British
Columbia was fully in accord
with" the scheme and would be
glad to co-operate in any plans
that might be formulated. Mr,
Bowser assured the Prime Minister that this province would be
found quite willing to do its share
in making easier t|je lot of the
returned wounded soldiers.
