Dominion Day Celebration
Was Successful Affair
Bombs Found by Police After Zeppelin Raids on Coast Towns.
When the youthful city of
Prince George starts oul to cele-
hrate, she celebrates in everything that the word implies. No
half-way measures are tolerated
in the proceedings which introduces the first public festival
since the city's inception—the
Dominion Day celebration yesterday.
The weather man was a large
contributor to the success of the
day's programme. The sun arose
bright and warm, and by noon
was emitting genuine midsummer
rays. Cool zephyrs banished any
discomfort arising from the heat
and resulted in weather that was
a joy to the ice cream and lemonade vendors.
The main thoroughfare was a
riot of evergreens, flags and
bunting ; the windows of stores
and offices were beautifully decorated for the occasion, and
countless evidences of that thoroughness that made this district
famous were on every hand.
About $450 in prizes were distributed for the different events
of the day. For the best decorated building, the prize went to
Hoods, Ltd. The Northern Lumber & Merchantile Co., copped
the prize for the best decorated
float in the parade, while little
Virginia Johnson on her handsomely decorated Shetlai d was a
popular prize winner.
The day's programme of events
started at 9-30 a.m. with a parade
headed by the city band, and
numerous decorated wagons and
floats, horsemen and equestriennes, carrying banners, etc.
When the procession reached the
athletic grounds east of George
Street it was very evident that
busy and willing hands had been
at work. A grand-stand, racetrack, ball-ground, and refreshment booths, had been prepared,
and everything was in readiness
for the carrying out of the
lengthy programme of sports.
The first events were the horse
races which were decided for the
following owners:
Free for all.-Ruggies, HouRhtaling.
Indian Pony Race. - Electic, Joe
Quaw, and Denis.
Pony Race. — Westoby, Enemark.
Slow Race.— Maurice Quaw.
Ladies' Race.— Mrs. Kennyon, Mrs.
Hanover, Mrs. Place.
In the afternoon the athletic events
were decided as follows :
KM) yd. dash.-A. E. Fawcett, M, E.
Curkins, Chas. Allen.
Three-legged Race. — Fawcett and
Corkins, Watson and McLeod.
Sack Race.-A. E. Fawcett, M. E.
Fat Man's Race.-C. Thumbart.

Baseball (iame.
The event that everyone looked
forward to was the baseball contest between the local nine and
the Hazelton team. The game
was a disappointment. The team
from the western town arrived
minus their battery, so a couple
of local players were substituted
in the field. The Prince George
team made a walk-away of the
game, the final score standing
1(3 2, which just about represents
the respective merits of the
In justice to Sinclair, the Hazelton pitcher, it might be stated
that he was under the doctor's
care up to within an hour of going into the box, and suffering
rather severely from ptomaine
Two more games are to be
played to decide the series, tomorrow and Sunday, and with
the arrival of three more players
today from Hazelton, a more even
contest is looked for in the remaining games. The reader is
spared the box score.
Patriotic Dance.
The dance in the Ritts-Kifer
Hall in the evening was a fitting
conclusion to a most successful
day.   The proceeds were in aid
of the Canadian  Patriotic Fund,
and the ladies of the local branch
exceeded   anything  before  at-
: tempted in this line of entertain-
I ment.   The music was splendid,
i the floor in excellent condition,
and the large gathering had a
1 most enjoyable evening.
G. T. P. Hotel Was
Opened Yesterday
At Edmonton.
In line with their usual policy
of progress! veness and to provide
the  beat possible service,   not

j facilities for passengers, but also

.travelling in  Western  Canada,
i the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
i Company have added one more
I feature in the way of a hotel at
j Edmonton,    "The  Macdonald,"
I which was opened yesterday, and
| which is not surpassed on the
American continent for location,
architectural design, furnishings,
equipment, cuisine, and all other
matters that go to make for the
comfort and convenience of the
travelling public.   "The Macdonald" is situated in the heart of
the business portion of Edmonton
Alberta, and is particularly convenient to the Grand Trunk Pacific station there. It is of chateau
architecture, contains two hundred rooms,  one  hundred  and
fifty baths.   The hotel has been
designed so as to have all outside
bedrooms,  which permits of a
magnificent view of the entire
country overlooking the Saskatchewan  River.   European  plan
will prevail; rates to meet present conditions have been named,
viz.—Rooms, 82.0o per day and
upwards, without bath ; $3.00 per
day and upwards,   with  bath;
thus permitting  the  travelling
public to secure a maximum of
comfort at a minimum of expense.   Mr. Louis Low has been
appointed resident  manager.
This gentleman has had many
years' experience in the better
class of hotels throughout  the
country and is fully qualified to
successfully look after the patrons of this magnificent hostelry.
A large number of the bombs dropped by the Zeppelins have
been picked up unexploded. In addition to the small amount of
damage done so far by these raids, the military value has been
practically without result.
Bring Scores of Finny Denizens as Indisputable Evidence
of the Splendid Fishing to be Enjoyed There.
May Mean Conscription
For Canadas As Well.
In an address before the Canadian ClubatOrilla, Hon. Arthur
Meighen said : "The call has
gone out lor 35,0o0 more men.
It is a challenge to the native-
born. I am not an alarmist and
I do not know of any occasion on
which people with British blood
in their veins have been frightened by words, but I believe it
may come to such a point that
every physically fit Canadian will
have to join in the fight for the
existence of the British Empire
and the continuance of civilization."
The manifold beauties and
varied delights of the Stuart
Lake region has been frequently
told by Prince (ieorge visitors of
late, but it remained for three
well-known local disciples of
Izaak Walton to recount the most
wonderful tales of the avaricious-
ness of the finny tribes that literally swarm in its waters, Messrs,
Carleton, Fetters, and Johnson,
of the Cache, returned this week
from a ten-days' fishing trip to
Stuart Lake, and their seemingly
incredible tales of the wonderful
fishing to be enjoyed there are
not to be classed in the ordinary
category of "fish stories" for
they brought home the goods-a
huge box full of lake trout, some
of them weighing 12 pounds.
Each of these gentlemen is loud
in praise of the Stuart Lake and
its game fish, and promise a return engagement during the summer.
Mr. Charles E. McElroy was
another visitor to that region
lately and though Charlie has
hitherto preferred to do his fishing under the shade of a tree
with a good case of bait cooling
in the placid waters near at hand
he has returned an enthusiast
over the chugging gasboat, the
whirling spoon and the whizzing
reel. And just to make the story
of his prowess as a mighty fisher
good, Mr. McElroy brought back
a few choice samples of the:
denizens of the lake.
Since the undisputable evidence
of the aforementioned fishermen ■
have been seen here, there has
been a hurried overhauling of I
fishing tackle among the  local!
sports and several are preparing
to go and learn for themselves
the glories of the Stuart Lake.
Stuart Lake is easily accessible!

Little, if any camping outfit is
required. Thero are stores close
at hand where all provisions can
be purchased. Row-boats, or
gasoline launches can be hired at
reasonable rates, and splendid
camping grounds are available
free of cost. The bathing advantages are superb ; fine sandy
beaches and gradually deepening
water make the swimming equally safe for the expert or the novice. The beauties and advantages of Stuart Lake will grow rap
idly on the lovers of outdoor life,
so recent visitors state, until it
becomes the most popular resort
between Edmonton and the coast.
Constable Bums'
Body Recovered
The body of Provincial Con-
' stable Burns was found yesterday
] near the mouth of the Blackwater
: river where it had lodged on a
sandbar, lt was in a badly de-
i composed condition and was
j brought to police headquarters
here. The body will be sent to
Ladysmith for interment.
The double drowning of Constable Burns and Martin Clark,
of the forestry department, occurred on May 19th while going
through the lower rapids of Fort
George canyon in a canoe. Mr.
Heath, a third occupant of the
canoe, managed to reach the
shore in safety. Clark's body
has not yet been recovered,
though friends are now hopeful
that the receding waters of the
Fraser will disclose his body on
the banks or among the driftwood.
American Scientists
in Northern B. C.
The provincial game warden,
Mr. Bryan Williams, states that
two scientists from the United
States Department of Agriculture
will spend the summer and fall
months of this year in the Chilcotin and Peace River districts,
making a study of big game
there. Their work is part of a
big plan which has been in progress for some years, for an exhaustive study of the animal
life of the entire North American
continent. The gentlemen employed to lead the expeditions are
for the most part, men of means
and leisure, with a taste for outdoor life and Jscientific research,
who serve the United Slates govern'": n: in at ' i wrary capacity.
Messrs. Richardson and Hale
who led last year's party, did a
gn-at deal of valuable survey
work in Lhe Pine River district,
and at the close of the season's
work paid the provincial govern-
me'ii .i graceful compliment by
forwarding a duplicate set ofj
thoir maps as a gift to the provincial game warden's ot.ee.

PARIS, July 2.-The French war department today
gave out tlie following official statement: The artillery
fighting was spirited all last night at a great many points
along the front, notably in the vicinity of Wosten, northwest of Ypres, in the region of Souchez and in the neighborhood of Vernul.
North of the Aisne, after a violent and continued
bombardment upon our positions along the road from
Oablain to Angres, north of Bethune highway, (lerman
grenadiers delivered an attack at about 2 o'clock in the
morning. This w_s a co.npl^te failure. Near La Boiselle
one of our mines was successful in destroying the advance
works of the Germans.
In the Argonne there was very violent fighting all last
night. One of the German attacks was supported by the
use of asphyxiating bombs, as well as large hand bombs.
It was driven back. In the forest of Lepre there was also
a forward movement on the part of the enemy, which followed a violent artillery fire to prepare the way. This
attack also was driven back by the fire of our infantry.
PETROGRAD, July 2.-The following official statement regarding the progress of hostilities, was issued last
night by the Russian army headquarters :
The enemy's offensive between the Viesprz and Bug
rivers continues. Rear-guard actions of the most stubborn
character occured here on June 29, on the Tomaszow and
Seamose roads, as well as on the roads to Sokolkaa. In
Galicia the enemy on June 29 and the morning following
delivered persistent attacks in various sections of the front
from Kadonka to Halicz. All attacks were repulsed. We
inflicted great losses on the enemy and took about 4,000
prisoners. The enemy was unable to make headway along
the front of our trenches for a distance of several hundred
paces except in some places. On other fronts absolute
calm prevails.
PETROGRAD, July 2,~-A German torpedo boat has
been blown up by a mine off the port of Windhau, Court-
land. The warship was one of a Herman fleet, of one
patrolling cruiser, four light cruisers and some torpedo
boats, which made an unsuccessful attempt to bombard
Windau and land troops. Russian torpedo boats compelled
the (lerman vessels to retire.
LONDNN, July 2.-Three British steamers, the Ingle-
moor, the Caucasian, and the Welbury, were torpedoed
and sunk today by a German submarine. The crews of
the Inglemoor and Caucasian were landed at Falmouth.
The crew of the Welbury is safe.
LONDON, July 2.—Bulgaria has notified its reservists
here to be ready to join the colors.
Recruiting Officer
Arrives Today
Will Take Possibly a Hundred
Volunteers and Leave for
Prince Rupert. Sunday.
Lieutenant Van de Byl, recruiting officer for the overseas forces,
is expected to arrive in the city
this afternoon from Hazelton.
Notices have been posted that
those wishing to enlist for service abroad are to report at Dr,
Richardson's oflice at 2 p. m. today or tomorrow for medical examination.
Mr. R. C. S. Randall, who has
been receiving applications for
volunteers pending the arrival of
the recruiting officer, states that
he has taken the names of about
80 applicants during the past few
weeks. Many of these, however,
have left for other points of enlistment.
Probably a hundred or more
recruits will be accepted here if
that many offer themselves. The
volunteers will leave here Sunday
evening in special cars for Prince
Ferryman Recovers
Body From Nechaco.
The body of an unknown man
was taken from the Nechaco
river by Ferryman Donnelly yesterday. Nothing was found on
the body that would lead to the
identity of the drowned man.
He was apparently between 38
and 45 years of age, and wore a
black shirt, union underwear,
black striped trousers and nearly
new shoes. An Ingersoll watch
and 55 cents in silver was all that
was found in the pockets. The
body is at Sandiford's morgue.
School Will be
Built at Once
Robert Lansing, who as counsellor of the State Department,
has advised President Wilson in
law and precedent in the policy
pursued by the United States toward belligerent governments
since the outbreak of the European war, has been named Secretary of State to succeed Wm.
Jennings Bryan.
Word has been received in the
city from Hon. Thos. Taylor,
minister of public works, that
the building of the school on the
Millar portion of Prince George
will be commenced almost immediately. The style of architecture will be similar to that of the
Fort George school,
"Big Bill" Nunneley, of the
local provincial police, is a volunteer for overseas service. Bill's
previous armv experience in
Africa should advance him rapidly. The people will be sorry to
see him leave, but are confident
that if he comes to close quarters
with the Huns he will at least
equal the record of Sergeant
Michael O'Leary. !

Statement of Mr. Barnes, of Munitions Committee, Who Have
Reached Vancouver on Their
Search for Artisans.
FRIDAY,   JULY  2nd,   1915.
The Herald is informed that a
movement is on foot to resuscitate the Prince (leorge Chamber
of Commerce, an organization
that a year or more ago performed good service in bringing the
advantages of this place before
the world at large, lt is to be
hoped that the report is true and
that the pioneer organization
will take up the useful career
that was ended owing to lack of
public interest and support.
For some time past this paper
has agitated the formation of
some public body that would te
represen a ive of the busii ess ir -
terests here. Citizens and merchants were agreed that such an
organization was imperatively
necessary of the city of Prince
George as an incorporated municipality were to receive the
recognition deserved, In addition
to the publicity such an organization can furnish, questions of
great local moment are constantly arising that only a representative body can discuss and effectively advise on.
Let the citizens as a whole
stand behind such a body and it
can be made a power in the upbuilding ol our city.
Vancouver, June 22.—Having
[arrived in the city this morning
from the east, George N. Barees
Member of the Imperial House of
Commons, and William Windham
of the British Board of Trade,
the members of Lloyd George's

mechanics desiring to go to the

number of prominent  business j
| men and delegations representing

th* probable number of mechanics who would he given transportation from Canada, Mr, Barnes
said he estimated the number
would run between 2,000 and
3,000. Until he and his associate
had looked after the forms signed
here he would not be in a position
to hazard any statement as to the
number that would be engaged
in Vancouver, There are understood to have been 3,000 applications for employment already
filed at the city hall.

"It is difficult," continued Sir Richard, "to make the people of Ottawa

to talk about defence, but I have expressed myself at other times."
The price paid was $1,150,000. Capt.

Farmers Urged to Secure
Help Early This Year.
The Alberta provincial department
of agriculture has issued the following statement respecting labor and thc
approaching harvest:
"The department of agriculture
begs to advise the fannei s of thc province that in view of the large increase
in the acreage seeded to grain and
the promising crop conditions, there
is likely to be a very great demand
this season for harvest help, and as
there are a large number of unemployed workmen in our cities at the present time it would be well to engage
such help as may be needed at the
earliest possible moment.
"Hitherto it has been the policy of
the railway companies to induce westward immigration for harvest help,
but this year it may be assumed that
no such movement will be possible as
conditions in the eastern provinces are
Very similar to those in the west, wilh

"Al the present time there are a
certain number of unemployed in Alberta. There are now, however, over
100,000 men under arms, and recruiting is progressing rapidly. Before
harvest therefore, il is safe to con-
elude that upwards of 50,000 more
men will have been withdrawn. It is
also expei'ted that railway and municipal work will rapidly employ many
of thc present unemployed, so there

"Not one cent, directly or indirectly," answered Sir Richard.
The witness stated that tlie ships
were procured several hours before
war was declared. Later an investigation was instituted by the United
States state department at the instigation of the German embassy to find
if there had been a breach of neutrality.
Sir Richard said: "It is enough to
discourage a man from service to his
country, when one finds men through
political bias and partisanship imputing all sorts of underhand and damnable motives."
"I hope not," said thc commissioner.
It was decided to ask Mr. Patterson
to appear and also to secure a statement from the company by which the
boats were designed.
London. England.—A well-informed
neutral banker, who returned recently
from Vienna, gave the Times the following account of the financial policy
of Austria-Hungary and Germany:
"Money is plentiful in Austria—
that is to say. paper money and silver
and nickel coins. More than $1,500,-
000,000 of paper money has been issued in the dual monarchy since thc
beginning of the war. The gold covering for paper circulation has decreased during the same time from
nearly $.'150,000,000 to $150,000,000,,
but gold is needed only for purchases
of food and war materials from abroad
and these are restricted to a mini-!
"If  hostilities   were   to  cease  and;
peace   were   to be signed   tomorrow, j
Austria-liunguriu   would immediately
become bankrupt.   She might be able
to pay a dividend of 11 per cent, to
her creditors, but not more.
Workers Flocking to Register at
Munition Factories   Visible
London, June 25. The enrollment
of war munitions volunteers is engaging more attention for the time being
than the enlistment of recruits for tbe
army. It is a strikinn- proof of how-
David Lloyd George, the minister of
munitions, has succeeded in awakening
the country to the paramount necessity of concentrating on the production
of shells and other war materials.
Lasl. night the mur.iiions works bureaus were opened in nearly 200
towns, also in various parts of the
country, of which 58 are in London
alone, and in a large number of office
buildings, to give British workmen an
opportunity to get into the factory line
and supply the firing line.
According to a page advertisement
in big type printed in all the important
newspapers, these offices were opened
in the evening in order that the
men might enlist or munition work
without losing time in their present
"Every skilled worker who is ready
to go will be put into his new job
with the least possible delay," said P.
E. Morgan, a well known business man
whom Mr. Lloyd George has impressed to help mobilize the new army of
skilled workmen. "There will be no
long period of waiting. Thc need is
too urgent. The loyalty of the British workingrnan is such, we know,
that he is prepared lo make sacrifices
t. help his pals on the firing line."
The workingrnan of Great Britain
was never before the object of so
much consideration. Both on the firing line and in the factory line he is
regarded as the savior of his country.'
Lloyd George's sombre speech has:
fully aroused the nation to the real
gravity of the situation.
"Evidently a great wind has been
blowing through the official chambers
of Whitehall," says the Daily Telegraph. "First-class business men
with local knowledge are to take over
control from departmental officials
overwhelmed with work, yet loath to
part with a scrap of authority. Already the results are visible."
The newspapers united in Supporting Lloyd George, even the Daily
News admitting that the war office
broke, down under a strain altogether
beyond its capacity and warns the
people with its now policy,
"Lloyd George tells a melancholy
story of unprepared .088 and failure
up to date." says the Morning Post,
"There is no need tod isiribute the
blame, but we must amend in tho
future, for the position is now very

More Suits Over
Arnold Insurance.
Two more writs against insurance companies for payment
of policies on the life of the late
William K. Arnold, mana. in_
director of the Dominion Trust
Company, have been filed in the
Supreme Court. Each claims payment of a 850,000 policy, and
further writs are expected, asj
the late Mr. Arnold carried a'
total insurance of 8455,500 at the
time of his death last October.
Several of the policies had been
written shortly before his death.
One of the policies sued on in
the proceedings just begun was1
taken out in the New York Life
Company on September Hith,
1914, a month before Mr. Arnold's
death. It is for a sum of $50,000, |
Mr. Arnold at. the time had other
policies In this company for 8150,-
The other policy is in the Mutual Life Company, and was taken
out on Novemher 27th, 1912. It
is for 850,000, and is the only
policy held by Mr. Arnold in the
company. ,
