 THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER OF NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
VOL VII, NO. 8
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1917
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
MORE NEW STRUCTURES
Three Residences to be Erected
���Building Contractors
Are Busy
Builders in Hazelton are likely
to be busy for some time to come,
since plans are being made for a
number of new structures, ii|
addition to those now under way.
The-Ingineca Hotel property has
been purchased by Ruddy &
MacKay, who propose to remove
the old buildings and erect in
their places three neat residences,
one of which will be occupied by
James MacKay.
Manager Maguire is busy superintending the structural alterations to the Omineca Hotel,
which he intends to convert into
one of the most comfortable hos-
telries in the district. Desirable
features of the new building will
be a large and comfortable lounge
for the use of patrons; a handsome parlor for ladies, and improved lighting and sanitary
systems.
In the course of a few days the
new store of the Hudson's Bay
Co. will be ready for the installation of the shelving and fixtures.
Unfavorable weather has somewhat delayed work on Ruddy &
MacKay's new stable at the foot
of government street, but the
building is expected to be ready
for use early next month.
HOW TO MAKE
YOUR MONEY GROW
War savings certificates for
the small investor are almost too
good to be true. They are so
good that the government will
not sell more than $1500 worth to
any one person. They yield over
five per cent on the investment,
may be redeemed at any time,
and have the Dominion of Canada
back of them as security. In
other words, they have all the
advantages of a savings bank account, but have greater security
behind them and yield over two
per cent more.
The following table shows how
your money will grow in three
years if invested in war savings
certificates:
$      8.60 grows to $    10.00
21.50       "   "        25.00
43.00       "   "        50.00
86.00       "   "       100.00
480.00       "   "       500.00
860.00       "   "    1,000.00
1.290.00       "   "    1,500.00
These certificates can be bought
at any bank or money-order post
office or you can get them direct
from the minister of finance at
Ottawa. Every moment you de
lay means loss of interest to you
and a lost opportunity to do your
country a patriotic service.
HUN AND RUSSIAN NAVIES FIGHT
TEUTONS FORCED SMALLER FLEET TO RETIRE-
ADVANCING BRITISH WEDGE IN FLANDERS
(via Prince Rupert)
London: The Russian and
German fleets have had an encounter in the Gulf of Riga.
While full details have not been
received as yet, still it is known
that the Russian warship Slava
has been sunk. Most of her
crew were saved.
A German warship has been
lost in the sound between Denmark and Sweden.
The next move of the German
fleet is said to be against the
Aland islands, in the Gulf of
Bothnia. With these islands in
their possession , they would
be in a position to menace Russian communication with Sweden
and the remainder of Europe, as
the only cables from Russia are
laid adjacent to the Aland islands.
London: Desultory fighting by
day and trench raids at night
make up the round of the British
soldiers'   life in  the  front   line
trenches these days. Since the
last advance of a few days ago,
there has been no movement of
any importance. Enemy artillery
is extremely active.
(via Alaska Cable)
Washington: A war department bulletin today decribes the
fighting on the Flanders front as
a veritable typhoon of fire The
British and Canadian front is no
longer to be considered a salient,
but an ever-extending wedge
driven progressively into the
German lines.
London: The Times'Russian
correspondent says alarming disorders occurred in Mahiler, Saratov and other agrarian districts,
with rioting at Knartov. Illicit
distilling has led to wholesale
drunkenness and severed communication between Taskent, in
Turkestan, and Petrograd. The
highest gambling ever known is
practiced.     In   one   resort   tha
minimum stake is twenty thousand roubles. Robberies and
outlawy are rife.
LOCAL NEWS PARAGRAPHS
Items Of General Interest From
Hazelton and Surrounding District
Berlin: Ten thousand Russian
prisoners were taken in the German occupation of the island of
Oesel. Fifty guns were seized,
with much other material.
'Petrograd: The official account
today says 55 German warships,
including two dreadnoughts, participated in the engagement in
the Gulf of Riga, in which the
much smaller Russian fleet was
forced to retire.
London: A Berlin despatch
says Germany will shortly declare
the coasts of the U. S., Canada
and Cuba war zones.
Belgians have been shelling
enemy works in front of Dixmude for two days.
New York: A cable to the
Sun says 35,000 German deserters
crossed the Dutch frontier during
the last two months.

THE RED CROSS
TO DEVELOP
EUREKA GROUP
On Friday evening next, Oct.
26, a noteworthy entertainment

Club will meet at the Club rooms
on Thursday evening, at 8:30, to
prppare a program of business

A captured German order relating to a recent futile attack on
the British lines, affords another
example of Hun ethics. It reads,
"The British always respect the
ambulance bearers and the Red
Cross. This is why the commanders of units, companies and
attacking sections should wear
the Red Cross uniform when
leading their men to the assault."
Rev. W. M. Scott, of Smithers,
was here this week.
The Hagen property, known
as the Eureka group, in Granite
Basin, is to be developed by the
Goldfields Consolidated, under I
the direction of James B. Rowley. This property, which consists of four claims, is situated
on Bear river, not far from the
Babine trail, and has a very
promising showing of silver-lead
ore. Supplies for the winterj
were sent out by packtrain yesterday.
Electric Light for Town
Through the enterprise of J.F.
Maguire, an arrangement has
been made for the installation in
Hazelton of an electric light plant,
the first unit of which will have
a capacity of 500 lights. The
business will be financed by local
men.
Advancing in German East
Africa, British troops have occupied Ruperda, an important junction.
A measure prohibiting the use
of grain by breweries and distilleries is under consideration by
the Dominion government.

Anderson, collected $68.30; Mrs.
Hogan reported $12.75 from the

CANADIANS MUST ECONOMIZE IN WHEAT
Canada and the United States probably will be able to provide
for the Allies' requirements of cereals other than wheat during the
next twelve months. The Allied peoples themselves have been
economizing with wheat and wheat flour. As Lord Northcliffe said
in Montreal, "There is no such thing as white bread in the Old
Country, from the King's table downwards." Other cereals are
being used, but they cannot be used alone for bread. The Allies
must add them to wheat flour to make the war bread now in
universal use in European countries. Except in Italy, where the
people normally consume much corn, there are few corn mills in
Europe. Oornmeal, not being a durable commodity cannot be
shipped across the ocean in great quantities.
The Allies must have a wheat flour basis for their war loaf.
Unless the paople of Canada and the United States are willing to
substitute other cereals for pa-t of the wheat flour which they
normally oijurm, tin/ will b} danyirig evan wai bread to many
thousands of people. Substitution of at least one pound of other
cereals for one pound of wheat flour weekly, per person, would
save a very large quantity of wheat for export. It would still be
far short of meeting the normal consumption of the Allies, but it
would save the situation.
GERMANY WANTS AN INDEMNITY
The Deutsche Tageszeitung published a noteworthy article on
the reichstag resolution of peace without annexation or indemnity.
Such a peace, it says, would spell ruin to Germany. Before the
war the wealth of the German people amounted to between 330 and
390 billions of marks, of which nearly half has been spent on the
war. Without an indemnity there is no hope of carrying on during
the first ten years after the conclusion of peace. Germany would
have to bear extra taxation amounting to 12 billions of marks, as
compared with the pre-war tax of 3J. How can the country in the
state of ruin in which it will find itself, and in view of of the
enormously increased cost of living, shoulder an added burden of
that magnitude, when the sum of six millions would be a maximum
effort and even that could be endured only with the greatest effort?
Have the Socialists, asks the writer, who prate of peace, of
Germany being able to meet her liabilities, considered how she is to
care for her military sick and wounded, and pick up the threads of
her export and import trades, unless she seizes the opportunity of
a peace to impose such terms as will secure for her a sufficiently
large indemnity to meet her liabilities, and further enable her to
procure the raw materials she must have to rebuild her trade
connection? Germany is not blind enough, after all her sacrifices,
to accept in lieu of the material compensation she must have, fine
phrases about peace and goodwill amongst men.
DEFINITION OF
VARIOUS CLASSES
Under the latest Military Service Act regulations, men called
up are, upon examination, placed

London: Northwest of Bullecourt early this morning, Irish

considerable activity during the

Staden railway.
