Smithers Goes Under in First
Two Hockey League
Games
The hockey season was officially opened in Hazelton on Tuesday
night, with Smithers as the
visiting team. The divisional
point sent along a weak team,
and having had no ice to practice
on before they left, the result of
the game was never in doubt.
The score was 8-0 in favor of
the Hazelton boys, and would
have been a great deal larger but
for the sensational work of Cran-
dall in goal for Smithers.
Of Hazelton's eight goals,
Hume scored 5, Kinghorn 1, Mc-
Dougal 1, and McKay 1. Owing
to the leniency of the officials,
the game developed into an exhibition of slashing, tripping,
charging and crosschecking. In
the last period the game had to
called at one stage to prevent a
free-foi-all fight, and just before
the final whistle, O'Shea was
laid out by a blow over the head
with a hockey stick while on his
knees on the ice. McKay replaced O'Shea and scored the
last goal for Hazelton after 30
second's play. The teams lined
upas follows:

CARNIVAL GRAND SUCCESS
The carnival held last night on
the local rink by the Athletic
Association was a decided sue
cess, both socially and financially.
The costumes were many and
varied, a number in costume
coming from New Hazelton. The
band played, there were races
and a broomolo game, and refreshments were served. The'1
following were prize winners:���
Ladies' costume, Mrs. Sealy, as
a witch; ' gentlemen's costume,
Mr. Kirby, as a Hindu Sowar
(cavalry). Sustained character,
Kathleen Allen, as Chinese lady:
Children's costumes, Roby Anderson and Ernest Kirby, as
imps. Buck Irwin won the men's
race, Maggie Allen the ladies',
and Cooper Wrinch and Roby
Anderson won the children's
races.
Adair Carss, counsel for May,
the Hazelton Indian convicted
of murder, is appealing the case,
on the ground that certain evidence was wrongly admitted, and
that the judge exceeded his right
of comment in his charge to the
jury.
GERMANS SUCCESSFUL ON AISNE-
BUKOWINA OCCUPIED BY RUSSIANS
Petrograd, Jan. 16:���On the
right bank of the lower Vistula
the Russians continue to advance,
driving the German cavalry outposts before them. Since yesterday's report, the Russians
have moved another score of
miles westward, and are now
about twenty miles north of the
city of Plock. No information
can be given as to the strength
of the Russian forces moving
westward, north of the Vistula,
but it appears they are well
ahead of any German movements
in this region since they have
encountered only cavalry patrols.
As yet the Germans have had
the advantage of a perfectly open
and level country, whereas the
country covered by the Russians
.s   heavily   wooded   and   much
broken with hills, providing an
admirable ground for defence
against superior forces. There
has been noticed several times
a certain nervousness on the
part of the Germans, concerning
their flank. This is protected by
the broad Vistula river, only
bridged at Plock and Vlotslavsk,
but there are half a dozen places
where crossing could be affected
by an enterprising force taking
advantage of the islands which
narrow the fairway pretty considerably.
The Germans made one attempt to cross the Vistula, but
totally failed. The Russians,
after waiting until the bridge
was nearly ready, and a number
of Germans already across on an
Island, suddenly swept them
away with their artillery.
London: ��� A Petrograd des-
I patch to the Havas agencv states
I that it is reported from Sebasto-
ipool, that the Russian fleet, dur-
! ing the last few days, sank eight
: sailing vessels which were transporting reinforcements to the
; Turkish army in Asia Minor.
London:���How   the   Russians
Igtfined  command   of the   most
I important position in the  Carpa-
! thian passes by daring  exploits,
I is told by the  Petrograd  corres-
! pondent of the Times.    The nat-
| ive   Caucasian   troops,   holding
! to the tails of their hardy mountain ponies, are said to have scaled
I at night, an apparently impassible
t summit, gaining the rear of the
I Honved   battalion,   which   was
surprised and surrounded.     The
Grand Duke Michael was among
the Russian soldiers in the thick
I of the fighting.
STORY OF THE GREAT WAR TOLD DAY BY DAY
London, Jan. 11:���The limes
asserts that sixteen German aeroplanes were seen over the English Channel on Sunday morning.
Evidently they contemplated a
raid on England but apparently
the pilots found conditions too
bad to continue the journey, for
they returned in the direction of
Dunkirk.
Immense preparations for a
general advance, which cannot be
far distant, are being made by
the French and British forces in
Northern France and Flanders.
Details of preparations are not
permitted to be given, although
many of the preparations cannot
have escaped observation.
A despatch to the Daily Express from Boulogne asserts that
confirmation has been obtained
that the Germans have evacuated
Lille, and that city is now virtually in possession of the British.
The liklihood of a break between Turkey and Italy over the
unwillingness of the Ottoman
government to comply fully with
the demands for reparations for
the Hodeida incident, is regarded
here as of the utmost importance. Turkey, according to the
Italian ultimatum, must apologize
for the arrest of the British consul at Hodeida, and must also
salute the Italian flag.
Rio Janeiro:���The Havas agency has received no confirmation
of the reported naval battle between the British cruiser Invincible and the German cruiser Von
Der Tann off the South American
coast. Naval officials here place
little credence in the report.
Petrograd, Jan. 11:���A semi
official statement says: "In the
Black Sea engagement, between
Turkish and Russian warships,
on Jan. 6, the Turkish cruisers
Breslau and Hamidieh were badly damaged. 	
Geneva, Jan. 11:���The struggle
in Alsace continues in spite of
heavy rains, there being more
than a' foot of water in the
trenches. The Germans have
already lost 6,000 killed and
wounded. Bolfort, the great
French fortress is filled with
prisoners, mostly men over forty
years of age. Steinbach has
been taken and retaken six different times, but is now in the
hands of the French.
Paris, Jan. 11:���The following
statement was issued today:
"The French government announces that, because the Germans are holding French surgeons and nurses, France will
hereafter expatriate German surgeons and nurses held as prisoners, only in proportion to the return of French surgeons and
nurses who are held prisoners
by Germany. The government
will in future accord German
prisoners only the same treatment accorded French prisoners
held by Germany.
London, Jan. 12:���The Daily
Mail's correspondent telegraphs
from Rome: "The whole of the
Austrian Crown land of Bukowina
has now been regularly occupied
by Russian infantry, who have
replaced Cossacks."
A large number of Austrian
soldiers who have doserted are
seeking refuge' in Roumania.
Most of them had arms of an extremely  old pattern  which are
practically useless.
Paris:���An Athens despatch
says the situation of the Greeks
in Asia Minor is becoming desperate, owing to the persecution
and violence to'which they are
being subjected. Greek stores
have been pillaged, women insulted and men forcibly enrolled
in the army at^Sidnoa. At Magnesia, several Greeks have been
murdered in the streets and conditions are so bad in Smyrna that
a massacre is feared.
According to advices received
from Athens it is reported in the
Greek capital that the plan to
have the eighth army corps proceed from Damascus to the
Egyptian frontier has been abandoned.
London: The Daily Mail correspondent telegraphs from Petrograd: "Along the Kawka, west
of the Vistula, in the woods and
marsh land which border the
the stream, the Germans are si 111
pouting men into that bottomless
sack which the Russians hold
out for them, for they always
try to fight the Russians in the
open. The Germans are still
hammering away at the same
point along a front of a few miles
without any obvious tactical idea.
The belief is gaining ground that
they recognize the impossibility
of taking Warsaw. The methods
the Germans are adopting suggest that they do not quite know
what to do. The military critic
of the Russy Slovo quotes an
army order said to have been issued by the German staff conducting operations in Poland. This
order repudiates the idea of at-
j tacking the extremely large Russian   force  which  is   defending

Severe Earthquake Destroys
Towns and Villages���Many
Persons Killed
Rome, Jan. 14:���Italy has a-
gain been visited by an earthquake of great extent, which,
according to latest advices has
destroyed many towns and villages and resulted in the death
of 12,000 persons and injury of
possibly 20,000 more. The shock
was the strongest Rome has felt
in many years.
Coroner's Inquest
At the Elphinstone inquest,
held Friday afternoon, the jury,
after bringing in a verdict that
deceased came to his death
through exposure and exhaustion
made the following recommendation:���"We recommend to the
Yukon Telegraph Service that
the shelter cabins between stations and half-way stations, be
fully supplied and maintained,
so as to afford ample shelter for
their employes.
County Court
At the sitting of the County

SERIOUS FIRE IN SMITHERS
Smithers, Jan. 14:-The Methodist Church and parsonage here
were completely destroyed by
fire last night. The fire is thought
to have started from an overheated stovepipe. The buildings
and contents are a total loss,
with the exception of the piano
and organ. The loss is estimated
at $3,700, with insurance on the
church of $1,000.
At New Hazelton on Monday
night, the home team defeated
Smithers 4-1 in a listless game.
New Hazelton had Warner on
the forward line, and E. Harris
in goal, Smithers-playing practically the same team as against
Hazelton.
The date of the Pound Dance,
announced for the 22nd, has
been changed to Wednesday the
20th, and will be held after the
I hockey game with New Hazelton
on that night. THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1915

Saturday, January 16, 1915.
No. 20
In accordance with the very useful practice he has followed
for many years, Sir Richard McBride reviews the conditions
prevailing in the Province during the year that has just closed.
What he has to say is of very great interest and extremely gratifying. Among the statements made by him is one relating to the
problem of unemployment. The Government has made an effort
to arrive at the facts in this connection, and the conclusion reached
is that the unemployed do not exceed four or at the most, 5 per
cent of the population, a state of things that ought to be and will
doubtless be a source of profound satisfaction. Such a situation
can be readily handled, and it is satisfactory to know that the I
Government is doing everything it can do to meet emergencies as
they arise.
Sir Richard's view of industrial conditions is full of reasons for
an optimistic outlook. What he says about mining, which during
the year has been subjected to unexpected contingencies, shows
upon how sound a basis this great industry rests. In respect to the
lumber interests he very properly points out that the depression in
this line does not arise out of the war, but had its origin in conditions culminating before the beginning of hostilities His hope
that some relief will be found by the negotiation of a reciprocity
treaty with Australia is undoubtedly well founded.
Special interest attaches to what he says in respect of our
fisheries. This industry has grown apace, but it is very far from |
having reached its possible development. We are especially
impressed with what he says about the herring fishery, which we
have always thought would be found to be a source of great wealth
to the Province. Sir Richard finds many causes for congratulation
in the progress of the various branches of agriculture during the
past year. In spite of all that has been said by critics hostile to
the Government, agriculture in British Columbia is growing greatly
in importance, and we are confident that the experience of 1914
will give a greater impatu-i to this department of industry in British
Columbia than it has ever before leceived.
In his message the Premier reviews briefly what has been
done in the way of railway construction during the year. It is a
very fine showing, and in view of the vast sum of money that has
been expended in this way during the past year, it certainly seems
exceedingly fortunate that he was able to bring into effect his
railway policy at the time he did. If he had waited, we fear that
a long time would have elapsed before the results achieved could
have been accomplished.���Colonist.
This district has always been
treated to fairly clean hockey
games, until Tuesday's exhib-
tion. There have been rough
games, but for deliberate dirty
work, the game in question,
which developed into a free
fight, and culminated in one of
the players being carried off the
ice from a deliberate assault, is a
new departure, and one that
calls for drastic action. It is an
indisputable fact that bad feeling
in sport is cumulative, and Tuesday's play clearly demonstrated
it to all present. It is the general impression that if the offending players had been penalized
in the early stages of the game,
that the regrettable conclusion
would not have been reached.
However the game is over, and
it is now up to the League officials. Upon their action at this
time depends, in a great measure, the future success of hockey
in this district.
What are they going to do a-
bout it? g
In China an oil well has been
drilled to a depth of 3600 feet
with the most primitive native
tools.

HAZELTON   AND   SMITHERS
London Building       ��� Vancouver
British Columbia THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1915
THjZ miner war bulletins
(Continued
Warsaw fortress, in other words
it means that Field Marshal von
Hindenburl's strategy was defective, and was aimed at saving
Silesia."
Amsterdam, Jan. 12: The
Cologne Gazette is very much
perturbed over Britain's reply to
the American note. The Gazette
thinks that in spite of the friendly expressions the reply is a (lat
negative. It claims that the
large increase of exports from
America to neutral countries is
due entirely to increased home
requirements.
San Francisco:--Neither Japan
nor Norway will send warships
to the Panama Exposition. Japan pleads her present state of
belligerency, and Norway, that
her entire fleet is needed at home
to enforce neutrality.
London, Jan. 13: -A despatch
to the Times from its Petrograd
correspondent, says, "The Viceroy in Caucasus finds his difficulties by no means easier since the
crushing defeat of the Turks.
The Turks have assembled in
large force, it is believed there
are 100,000 of them between
Kara and Erzerum."
At Kara, where they have
succeeded for several days in
holding the Russians back, they
show signs of giving way. The
Turkish resistance here is facilitated by the clo.se proximity of
Erzerum, from which the Turks
sire able to draw supplies.
Milan: Information which has
reached diplomatic quarters in
Rome, confirm the rumors that
Aust ia-Hungary is mussing 300
000 fresh troops for another expedition against Servia, and that
Germany has also sent a large
number of troops for this move,
including 50,000 which are now
assembling at Sarajevo.
Rome, Jan. 13:���The Popla
Romana, which is usually well
informed about the Austrian plans
states that the forthcoming Aus-
tro-German attack on Servia will
not be in the nature of a punitive
expedition, but will aim at joining hands with Turkey across
Servia.
Lima, Pt.ru.���Japanese cruisers continue active along the
coast of Peru, seeking the German converted cruiser, Prinz
Eitel Friederich.
Montreal;���A fleet of ten sub
marines for the British Navy is
under construction at the Canadian Vickers yard here. This is
the first half of an order for
twenty, which will be rushed
through with all speed, and hai
no relation to the orders given to
Charles M. Schwab by the British government.
"Havana: -A British cruiser of
the Suffolk type is cruising off
Morro Castle, and is believed to
be waiting to capture the German
steamer President. Wreckage
and lifebuoys, of German equipment, confirms the belief that
the Karlsruhe was sunk in the
naval engagement off the British
West Indies on November 25 and
that the news was suppressed by
the Admiralty for strategic reasons.
Petrograd, Jan. 14: Official
statement���Cannon and rifle fire
prevailed on the night of Jan. \t
all along our front. Engagements of more importance took
place in some districts on the
road followed by our vanguard
column, which is advancing in
the region to the east of Rosog,
in Eastern Prussia. Our troops
have repulsed the enemy's cavalry, supported by infantry, and
have occupied several villages,
one of which was strongly fortified and could only be cleared of
Germans by a bayonet charge.
Southwest of Mlawa, we advanced in the direction of Radzan-
owa. On our front, comprising
Koslow, Biskupe Zakrzew and
Sucha, the Germans, after having
from I'ase One)
prepared the ground by an intense artillery fire, made an offensive movement, but our troops
easily repulsed them. In the
region of Borjitnaw, and Szid-
lovvska, the enemy made many
unsuccessful attacks, in one advance the Germans tried to take
cover under shields. In the
region to the south of Mogehly
Farm, the enemy delivered a
series of attacks all of which
were easily repulsed.
Paris, Jan. 14. Official:���North-
fast of Soissons, our counter attack has progre sed slightly between CufhVs and Crouy. We
were, however, unable to debouch
from Crouy. Our troops, which
were subjected to a violent attack east of this place, have
yielded slightly near the village
of Moncel, but they still occupy
the village. They are holding
St. Marguerite and Missy-sur-
Aisne.
Petrograd, Jan. 15:���Official
statement���Yesterday we made
progress on the right bank of the
lower Vistula, our troops changing their position in a manner
favorable to them. The cavalry
of the enemy operating in this
region was repulsed, leaving
Zerpetz in possession of our vanguard. O i the other fronts
nothing has occurred other than
skirmishes and artillery duels.
Our reconnoitering parties have
been active. On the left bank
of the Vistula, isolated German
attacks were easily repelled by
our fire. On various portions of
our Austrian front, the enemy
tried to cannonade our position
with heavy guns, but the efficient fire of our batteries soon
silenced  the Austrian  artillery.
Petrograd, Jan. 15:���Information from Vienna is to the effect
that the Germans are preparing
another grand stroke. They
have brought up their 11-inch
monsters to the Russian front,
and on Tuesday began a general
bombardment, which lasted all
night and the day following.
That means an infantry attack,
which is perhaps now in course
of delivery.
Paris, Jan. 15, official communication:���Last night our troops
were successful in a sudden attack, with the object of overwhelming the trenches recently
constructed by Germans to the
northeast of Fouquescourt, north
of Roye (department of Snmme).
Attacks of the enemy in the
region to the north of Soissons
have bee i stopped. Flooding of
the River Aisne, which destroyed several of our bridges,
has rendered very precarious
communication with our troops
operating on the first slopes of
the right hank. We were thus
prevented from sending them reinforcements. This has been
the essential cause of the withdrawal of those troops which
were fighting under difficult conditions.
The Allies were obliged to a-
bandon several cannon as a
result of the breaking down of a
bridge; they have, however, rendered them all unfit for use.
The Germans have made many
prisoners, particularly of wounded men, who in the withdrawal
movement we were unable to
take with us. On our side, we
have taken a number of important prisoners, not wounded, and
belonging to .seven different regiments.
To sum up, the success is a
partial one for our adversaries,
which will have no influence upon the operations as a whole.
In fact, by reason of the obstacles presented by the Aisne,
and the dispositions which we
have taken, the enemy will be
unable to utilize, to the south of
the river, the success, which is
of a purely local character. On
the rest of the front there is
nothing to report.
