Hazelton Board of Trade Reports
Successful Year at Annual
Meeting Tuesday
The annual meeting of Hazelton Board of Trade took place in
the Board of Trade rooms on
Tuesday evening last. The treasurer's report showed that the
financial condition of the organi-
tion was quite satisfactory, and
was passed.
The chairman, A. R. Macdonald, gave a very clear account of
the Board's activities for the
past year, and urged the members to further efforts for the
benefit of the town and vicinity.
The secretary's report showed
that numerous subjects had been
dealt with by him during his
term of office. Correspondence
was read showing how important
a board of trade is to a community, as matters are repeatedly
coming up that can only be dealt
with by a body of this nature,
and the importance and general
necesity of general support of,
and interest in, our local institution is beyond question. The
secretary'a report was adopted
unanimously.
The next order of business was
the election of officers, resulting
as follows:
President: R. S. Sargent;
Vice-President: W. Wattie;
Hon. Treasurer: Jno. Newick;

THE HOSHTAL.
At the quarterly meeting of
the local hospital advisory board,
held last evening, it was shown
that the year's income was very
considerably less than the actual
cost of upkeep and of necessary
repairs.
It will be impossible to for this
institution to make ends meet
without more help. It is raises
rates enough to meet costs many
would be debarred by the expense from using the hospital.
The Hospital's annual patrons
meeting is to be held on January
24. A "patron" is anyone who
subscribes $5 or more, or who
pays that amount for tickets
dining the year preceding the
annual meeting.
A simple and effective way of
solving the hospital's problem:
Become a patron! The Hospital
has not often asked you for support; it does so now.
Subscriptions will be acknowledged by the Hospital if handed
to any member of the Board,
who are: S. H. Hoskins, chairman; R. E. Loring, H. H. Little,
K. S. Sargent, Miss R. M. Moore
and H. C. Wrinch, secretary.
Become a patron! Attend the
patrons' meeting on Jan. 24, and
help keep the hospital up to its
present state of efficiency-or
better, if possible���for a hospital
in a community is a distinct advantage to every resident anywhere near it.
Vcitory Loan
Subscribers are reminded that
they should hand their instalments, now due, to the bank
without delay. They should also
surrender their provisional receipts, which are returnable.
Canada's Prosperity
Canada's present prosperity is
''illustrated by the fact that her
people have over $1,000,000,000 in
bank deposits. This is despite
immense contributions to war
loans and repeated calls for patriotic purposes. Although little
or no new capital is coming into
the country, itjis doubtful if it
were ever richer than it is today.
The war has taught us to rely
upon ourselves financially.

roads and bridges for the
improvement of such lands:
(f) To sell, lease, or exchange
the said lands upon such

The Miner has received from

states that the overseas authorities urgently require a larger
number of men of various trades
for   overseas   service   with   the
j
1 Canadian  Engineers and asks us
to insert the following:

LLOYD GEORGE'S
SPEECH PLEASES
ALLIED PEOPLES
The re-statement of Britain's
war aims made by Premier Lloyd
George before the trades union
delegates on Saturday has been
received with a chorus of approval from the people of the Entente
Allies. The aims number eleven
and show that the cause for
which we fight cannot be but for
the benefit of civilisation when
forced upon a  beaten  Germany.
In brief, the terms as enunciated by the Premier, are:
1. The recovery of Alsace-
Lorraine for France.
2. The restoration of Serbia,
Montenegro, and the occupied
parts of France, Italy, and Roumania, with reparation for their
injuries.
3. The restoration of the political, territorial, and economic
national conditions in Arabia,
independence of Belgium, and
reparation for injuries done her.
4. The union of Italians with
those of her own race and tongue.
5. The establishment of the
independence of Poland.
6. The internationalization and
neutralization of the waterways
between the Mediterranean and
the Black Sea.
7. The recognition of separate
Armenia,   Mesopotamia,   Syria,
the following !andPa|esLine.
8. The establishment of the
equality of right among nations,
both small and great.
9. The bringing into existence
of a great international organi-
The Decline of the Mark
In spite of the protests of Germany that her financial condition
is sound, the market value of the
mark would belie the statement.
In normal times the mark was
worth 24 cents. At the end of
1915 it was at a discount of 20 per
cent. A year later it had dropped to 30 per cent. In June last
it had declined 44 per cent, and
in August was only worth 12
cents, while later, in September,
its discount was advanced to 54
per cent. Germady's neighbors,
who can best judge of her financial standing, will only accept the
mark at a 50 per cent reduction,
which shows that those who are
in a position to know Germany
best believe her to be but half
solvent.
High Prices For Ads.
Speaking of advertising, here
is what some publishers cnarge
for space; Ladies' Home Journal.
$8 a line, or $104 per inch, and
$6,000 for a full page each issue;
the back cover sells for $10,000.
A full page sdvertisement in the
Saturday Evening Post sells for
$5,000, and the back cover sells
for 7,000; the center page in color
for $12,000. As this advertising
space is always filled, it is evident that advertising pays, even
at these prices.���Ex.

mileage
20 to 25 miles to a gallon of
gasoline is a frequent occurrence with the Ford car. One
man (name on request) reports
an average of 33 miles per gallon for 20,000 miles. Surely
this is a record that few, if
any other makes of cars, ever
equalled.
It demonstrates the economy
of owning and driving a Ford.
You can average 1000 miles
more travel on Ford-size tires.
The saving on oil and repairs is proportionately large.   The
name  "Ford" stands for lowest cost and greatest service.

10. Provision that the basis of
any territorial settlement must
be government with the consent
of the governed.
11. A just and lasting peace.
These   aims   have   been   set
forth before, but coming as they
do amid the peace agitation and
pro-German propaganda, they
show the steadfastness of purpose which dominates the British
people which will finally lead
them to victory.
Farmers and Soldiers
An Alberta farmer was recently heard to say: "No more swine
growing for me. I raised forty
head last year and I could have
sold the grain for more than I
got for the hogs, bee .use of the
buyers' strike. I got caught
once, and I know when I've got
enough."
But suppose the soldier reasoned the same way and said: "No
more fighting. I was in Cambrai last week and got hurt.
I've been hit once and know
whed I've got enough."
The soldier who undertook to
act on that kind of reasoning
would he taken out and shot, because he is expected to forget
himself and to suffer, and, if
need be die for his country. The
farmer in question felt no duty
resting upon him, yet his philosophy acted upon in a large way
is just as likely to cause us to
lose this war as would that of
the soldier.���Ex.
British Navy's Great Record
The navy of England is greater
and more effective today than
three years ago. Its tonnage in
1917 was 71 per cent more than
the tonnage of 2,400,000 tons in
1914. Its personnel has grown
from 146,000 men to 390.000. its
aviators from 700 to 41,000. It
sweeps the "German" ocean day
and night and perforins its duties
without a stain on humanity. It
j has safeguarded the transportation not only of 13,000,000 men,
but of 2,000,000 horses, 25.00,0000
tons of explosives,51,000,000 tons
of fuel, and 130,000,000 tons of
food. It has been the salvation
of America, England, France,
Italy and Russia. No words can
render justice to its transcendant
service. The overthrow of Germany would prove impracticable
but for the sea power of England.
