 THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER OF NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
VOL VII, NO. 10
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1917
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
COL. PECK FOR MEMBER
Commander of Canadian Scottish
is Unionist Candidate
For Skeena
There is every prospect that
Lieutenant-Colonel C. W. Peck,
now commanding the 16th Canadian Scottish at the front, will
be member for Skeena in the
next Dominion parliament. At
the solicitation of friends in both
political parties, Col. Peck has
consented to stand for this district as the Unionist candidate,
and he will be strongly supported
by all who place patriotism before
politics. Before the war "Cy"
was prominent in the Liberal
ranks, and it is an encouraging
sign of the times that J. E. Mer-
ryfield, Conservative candidate
for this district, has withdrawn
from the field and pledged his
support to the Win-the-War candidate.
Col. Peck is well known throughout the district, which has taken
the greatest interest in the career of the gallant officer and his
men, many of whom left Hazelton and vicinity to join the 16th.
Starting as captain of the Skeena
company, "Cy" rose by sheer
merit to the command of the famous battalion, incidentally winning the Distinguished Service
Order and being mentioned in
despatches on several occasions.
It is not probable that he will be
here for the election, but Unionists have no doubt of his success.

Washington, Nov. 2:���British
and French troops have arrived
on the Tagliamento front, to reinforce the Italian army, says a
cable from Rome. Their numbers are not stated.
Washington, Nov. 1:���Thirty
thousand German soldiers,including two generals of divisions, were
killld in the great battle on the
Bafisizza plateau, according to
called reports today. General
CaHorna is pushing reserves rapidly forward, with every prospect
of checking the enemy's advance,
and British and French support
will be immediately forthcoming,

A despatch from London estimates the number of prisoners
at 120,000 and the number of
guns lost at "more than  1000".
Berlin. Nov. 1:--The Austro-
German forces invading Italy have
increased the number of prisoners taken to more than 180,000.
They have captured more than
1500 Italian guns. The foregoing
information was officially announced today by the German
war office.
The German statement says the
Teuton fourteenth army yesterday gained another great victory.
Portions of the Italian retreating forces made a stand at the
Tagliamento river. The bridgehead positions at Dignano and
Codroipo were captured by the
Germans.

STORM CAUSES
MUCH DAMAGE
Unionists Will Win
"As far as I have seen on my
journey through Canada to this
coast there is every indication
that the Union government formed by Sir Robert Borden will be
returned to power at the forthcoming general election," Hon.
Martin Burrell,secretary of state,
remarked on his arrival in Vancouver.
"Of course, I might be looking
at the situation from a prejudiced
standpoint, but at the same time
I think that the sentiment is so
strongly in favor of the administration which the Premier has
formed that there is no question
that the government commands
the support of people as a whole,"
he added.
GENERAL ELECTION
DECEMBER 17
Ottawa, Oct. 31: Writs were
issued tonight calling for a general election on Monday, December 17. Nomination day is fixed
for Monday November 19.
This applies to all constituences
except Yukon Territory. The
Yukon nomination day will be
December 31 and polling day four
weeks later, Monday.January 28.
All writs are returnable on
February 27,l!U8,and parliament
is summoned to meet on the day
following.
The election will be without
a parallel in the history of the
Dominion. The granting of the
franchise to soldiers and sailors
and their female relatives at
home has entailed the creation of
entirely new machinery. Military and naval polls will have to
be hold in Fiance, Belgium, the
United Kingdom, the West Indies,
Canada and on the high seas of
Europe a'nd North America.
Military voters stationed in
Canada will cast their votes on
the same day as the civilian electors. But the difficulties of an
election day at the front have
made changes necessary. All
soldiers overseas will begin voting on November 20,and military
votes may be cast up to and including the ordinary polling day.
The new house of commons
will consist of 234 members, as
compared with 221 in the last
parliament.
A heavy windstorm yesterday
put all telegraph and telephone
lines throughout the district out
of commission. So far as can be
learned, it will be impossible to
restore communication for some
days. Falling trees have caused
numerous breaks in the wires,
besides blocking the roads find
trails.
Mudslides and washouts on the
Skeena tied up G.T.P. trains for
several days, but the railway line
has been cleared and the passenger train from Rupert, due here
Wednesday evening, arrived this
morning, while today's trains are
on time.
It is reported that a section of
the Rocher de Boule tram was
flattened by the storm, but no
particulars can be obtained, as
the telephone line is down.

Beef and bacon are needed overseas in increaing quantities.
They are foods especially suited to the requirements of the men
who art' fighting and those doing heavy physical labor. The
scarcity of fodder and the greater call for meat have compelled the federal council
Allies since the beginning of the war to kill more than 33,000,000
head of their stock animals. Thus the stock of their meat is
decreasing. At the same time the needs of the soldiers and war
workers have increased the necessary meat consumption.
Imports of beef and bacon into Great Britain from Sweden,
Not way, Den mark and Hollaifd have been reduced to a very small
amount, whereas till three countries formerly supplied large
quantities, The United Kingdom is thrown more than ever upon
the North American continent for these commodities. Moreover,
the entrance of the United States into the war has greatly increased
the requirements of both beef and bacon for the United States
army.
The soldiers need beef and bacon and they can only be supplied
if the civilian populations of Canada and the United States will
reduce their consumption of these foods. A saving of one ounce
per person per day, and increased production of beef an/I bacon on
this continent would go a long way towards meeting the armies'
requirements.
incompatible with the demand
of the Workmen's and Soldiers'
group for the full restoration of
Belgium.
The convention of Austrian
Socialists now in session has
adopted a resolution providing
that under no circumstances shall

Shortly a campaign will be started till over Canada for
subscriptions to the third war loan, to be called the Victory Loan,
to raise $150,000,000 to carry on Canada's part in this struggle.
The rate of interest is expected to be 5J per cent, making it
exceedingly attractive as an investment���much more so than the
rate paid by the savings banks.     The security is beyond question.
A feature worthy of special note will be the fact toat Victory
bonds can be purchased in instalments, making them come within
the reach of everyone
twenty years.
Another point is that the money wili not be sent out of Canada,
but will be spent right here in the Dominion.
Sir Thomas White, minister of finance,states that Canada must
raise $300,000,000 per annum to pay its share of the cost of
carrying on the war to a successful finish.     This amount must be
