THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER IN NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
VOL. Ill, NO. 20
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY 17, 1914
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
STATISTICS SHOW STEADY
Comparative Figures for Last Five Years Illustrate Un
checked Progress of Development in Camps of Omineca
District���Greater Things in Prospect
Statistics of the business transacted during the year in the
office of Mining Recorder Kirby, at Hazelton, show that the
Omineca mining division continues to progress towards the top of
the list. Below are given comparative figures for the last five
years:
1909
Free Miners' Certificates 521
Mineral Claims Recorded 260
Certificates of Work 288
Agreements and Transfers 69
Placer Mining Leases 10
Mining Receipts $9,028   $11,217    $12,714   $14,371   $21,522
In 1913, 1140 mining receipts were issued, 127 placer claims
were recorded, and 25 claims were crown granted. A very satisfactory increase in the number of certificates of work is to be
noted, indicating that the general financial depression has not had
the effect of checking the development of our mineral resources.
Lack of snow for sleighing has prevented shipment of ore so far
this winter, yet the district is credited with sending 450 tons of
high grade mineral to the smelters. An even better record than
the above is certain to be made this year.

MEXICAN REBELS WIN
IN OJINAGA BATTLE
GOVERNOR-GENERAL
OPENS PARLIAMENT
_ Presidio, Jan. 11:���The Mexican federal army with nine
generals evacuated Ojinaga at
10 o'clock tonight, and the triumphant rebels under General
Villa immediately occupied the
village. Led by General Villa
the entire rebel forces advanced
on Ojinaga, firing rifle shrapnel
into the trenches, causing the
flight of non-combatants to safety on the American side. Deserters from the federal soldiers
were arrested by the United
States troops as they crossed the
border. The thunderfng of the
cannon and the withdrawal of
the federals fiom the outer
trenches indicated that the battle
had resumed and was steadily
creeping toward the federal
forts, which were shrouded with
great clouds of dust. The rebels
occupied positions within four
miles from the village before
they met with resistance. The
rebel fire overwhelmed the federal soldiers completely. They
attempted to retreat in disorder,
but fifty were captured, while
some jumped into the river and
swam to the other side.
Presidio, Jan. 12:���Twenty-
eight thousand soldiers, six
generals, two million rounds of
ammunition, two cannons, four
field pieces, 15,000 civilians and
refugees are in custody of the
United States army following
the evacuation of Ojinaga. The
distress of the refugees is appalling. With scant food and
no shelter, men, women, children, dogs, chickens and cattle
are packed together in a space
which covers several acres.
Scores of women camp followers
who lost their children are without clothing and drenched by
wading the river. From a military standpoint the situation is
without precedent.
J. E. Bostrom, the railway
contractor, was in town yesterday. He will have his work at
Fraser lake finished in May, and
expects to see the completion of
the line before the end of June.
Ottawa, Jan. 16:���The Duke of
Connaught today braved a snowstorm and intense cold to open
parliament. The usual brilliant
scene was presented. The speech
from the throne dealt with the
general prosperity of Canada,
expressing the belief that the
money stringency was but temporary. Redistribution was foreshadowed. The census results
were dealt with and the statement made that immigration
would be greater than ever.
There was no mention of the
naval question,
In the debate on the speech,
Laurier is expected to advocate a
free food policy and to deplore
its absence from the government
program.
TODAY'S DISPATCHES
The Royal Mail steamer Cobe-
quid was wrecked near Yarmouth, N. S. The passengers
and crew, surviving the icy
blasts, were all saved by government and other steamers, which
stood by. A great storm is raging along the Atlantic coast.
Intense cold is reported in
Eastern Canada, the United
States, France and Italy. Fourteen are dead of cold in New
York.
Confirmation is received of reported earthquakes, eruptions,
and famine in Japan.
The south African strike situation is improving. The strikers,

barricades, surrendered to the
authorities when threatened with
cannon.
Sir James Whitney's condition
is unchanged.

objects in his recent visit was to
obtain from the province an increase of the Canadian Northern

the reported proposal is obtainable.

SMITHERS GETS A FLYING
START IN ROSS CUP SERIES
In Sensational Games, New Team Defeats Champions and
New Hazelton���Hard Fought Contests on Local Rink-
City League Begins Series of Matches
Smithers and New HaEelton
met for their second game on
Thursday night, at Hazelton, the
rink in the new town not being
ready. A big crowd came over
to cheer their pets on to victory.
Smithers won by a score of four
to three.
Jack Aldous was the shining
star who was responsible for al'
the Smithers goals, he netting
three on individual rushes and
passing the puck out to Jardine
for the fourth.
New Hazelton played hard
enough and backed each other's
play, but loose work by the defence was responsible for their
defeat. In the third period,
with the score 3-1 in their favor,
the defence moved up-to mid-
ice, giving a clear sweep whenever their opponents broke away.
All the New Hazelton players
worked hard and eagerly, McKenzie showing the best form.
Many of the Smithers players
did a lot of loafing offside, which
escaped the eye of the referee.

up well.

Trimming the Old Town by a
score of 9-0, Smithers notched its
third win in the Ross Cup series
last night. The score gives no
indication of the character of the
play, which was fast and interesting throughout. Hazelton
fought to the last minute, the defence taking the heavy end of
the work. Time and again they
got away with a rush, but could
not net the puck. There was no
let-up, even though five goals
were piled up in the last period.
Sinclair made his first appearance for the season, playing his
In a manner that left no doubt
as to their class, the Smithers
hockey players defeated the fast
team from New Hazelton on Saturday night, in their first game
for the Ross cup and the championship of Northern B. C.
The score was 5 to 3.
It was nearly ten o'clock before the rink was cleared of
snow, which fell heavily in the
first two periods, making the
going heavy. The visitors, who
have a well-balanced team, with
lots of speed and good combination, started off at a fast clip
j and played an untiring and aggressive game to the finish.
That the Smithers team won the
name, almost without practice,
indicates that the chances for
annexing the silverware are of
the rosiest.- Review.
The City League unearthed
some surprises when they pulled
off their first game on Tuesday,
Hall, Milburn, Blackstock, Larter, and Little being most in evidence of the untried. O'Shea
refereed, and was kept busy
keeping his men under control,
handing   out several   penalties.
The game showed a big improvement on last year's exhibitions, and these games will provide much amusement throughout the winter.
Tonight the Maroons play the
Blacks, and on Tuesday evening
the Maroons will play the Grays.

Mayors elected: Planta in Nanaimo; Grey in New Westminster; Irwin in North Vancouver.

The number of victims may nev�� r
be known. Many refugees were
drowned while trying to swim
from Sakura to the city of Kngo-
shima, which is now in ruins.

No. 20.
Now that thc provincial government is beginning its work for
the year, we await with interest an announcement of the public
works program, to see just what the departments have included in
their estimates for the Northern and Central Interior. While large
expenditures have been made here in recent years, much remains
to be done in the building of roads, trails and bridges throughout
this district, and it is to be hoped the legislators will see their way
to the granting of adequate appropriations for the many improve-
mentB necessitated by the development of this part of the province.
We trust the policy of increased economy which is announced will
not bring too great a diminution of the appropriations for public
works in the Interior districts.
The current Gazette announces the appointment of deputy
game wardens for various districts, but we note that none has as
yet been named for this part of the province. From time to time
we have commented on the need of game protection throughout
this important district, and we hope the present session will not
pass without the appointment of a deputy warden for Omineca district. Now that the railway is in operation through the district,
with hundreds of miles of wagon roads and trails affording access
to every section, there would be no difficulty in patrolling the game
country. The splendid mule deer, spreading northward, are now
to be found here in considerable numbers, and if protected they
will afford excellent sport for legitimate hunters. On the other
hind, if indiscriminate slaughter is allowed, the district will lose
the best of its game ancl the province will lose a source of revenue.
We cannot speak too highly of the manner in which the government has gone about the conservation of the forests. Why not the
conservation of the game of the forests?

TO ORGANIZE
up
Bulkley Valley Agriculturists
To Form Two Bodies, for
Greater Efficiency
An important step was taken
by the member i of the Bulkley
Valley Agricultural Association
and Farmers' Institute when, at
the annual meeting on Saturday,
they decided to reorganize. The
present association has been successful invmany respects, and is
in excellent financial condition;
but it is generally felt that by
separating the Institute and Association better work can be done.
A committee consisting of the
president, E. C. Barger, P. R.
White, and H. A. Beck was appointed to deal with the matter.
It is probable that, following
the winding up of the present
organization, the Farmers' Institute will be re-formed, with
the present membership, while
a separate association, to which
business men as well as agriculturists will be welcomed, will be
organized to deal with the annual
fair and other matters concerning the general interests of the
community.
With the co-operation of H. E.
Walker, the provincial agriculturist, who is a valuable ally to
the organization, it is believed
there will be no difficulty in reorganizing on lines that will
make for increased efficiency.
President Barger, ably seconded by T. J. Thorp, the members
and their ladies, organized a
dance, following the business
meeting. Svenson's hall, at
Telkwa, was the scene, and no
more enjoyable social affair has
ever been held in the Valley.
While the majority of the members and guests danced lo the
excellent music furnished by J. F.
Adams and J. S. Gray, others
enjoyed card games and other
diversions. The tasty refreshments served by the ladies elicited unanimous approval.
Mr. Lubsiger is putting up a
two story building, 26x36 feet,
on Main street, next to The
Review. The work on the foundation is about completed.
Mrs. Orchard, who has been
seriously ill, is recovering at
Hazelton Hospital. Mr. Orchard
has taken their little son, William, to the hospital for treatment.
