Report Presented At Annual
Meeting of Patrons Held
On Thursday Evening.
A CAPABLE MANAGEMENT
Superintendent and Staff Congratulated
On Excellent Showing Made During
Year ��� Member of Advisory Board
Elected    Ladies Entertain Patrons.
Quite a number of Hazelton
people displayed their interest in
the Hospital by attending the
annual meeting of patrons, on
Thursday evening. The report
for 1911, a synopsis of which
appears in this issue, was received with applause, and a
resolution congratulating Dr.
Wrinch and his staff on the continued success of their work was
unanimously carried. In the
absence of E. H. Hicks Beach,
the public representative, the
chair was taken by A. R. Macdonald. Rev. John Field and
L. L. DeVoin, in moving and
seconding the adoption of the
report, took occasion to express
the confidence of the public in
the management of the institution. The election of the patrons'
member of the advisory board
resulted in the choice of L. L.
DeVoin, who addressed the meeting, advocating liberal support
for the Hospital. Following an
address by Dr. Wrinch, outlining
needs of the hospital, the meeting was adjourned, those present
remaining to be entertained en-
joyably by the ladies of the
staff and a number of Hazelton friends. Among those who
contributed to the entertainment
were Miss Sharpe, Miss Light,
Miss Martin, Miss Grist, Mrs.
Williamson, Mr. H.H. Little, Miss
Ward, Mrs. McLean. Refreshments were served before dispersal.
A large committee of ladies,
of which Mrs. Wrinch is convener, has for consideration the
feasibility of organizing a ladies'
auxiliary for the Hospital.
Following is the personnel of
the staff: Dr. H. C. Wrinch,
Medical Superintendent, attending physician and surgeon; Dr.
C. G. Maclean, assistant; Miss
Elsie Lister, Matron and super
intendent of training school; Miss
Violet Bird, housekeeper; Miss
Jennie McDonald, Miss Gertrude
Martin, Miss Amy Grist, Miss
Laura It. Adams, Miss Gertrude
Germaine, nurses in training.

Will Locate Postoffice
On Kelly Townsite
The business men of New Hazelton are somewhat exercised
over reports that the postoffice
and government telegraph office
are to be immediately located on
Ninth avenue, about half a mile
from the present business center.
They maintain that the offices
should be placed, temporarily at
least, in a more convenient situation. A telegram to H. S. Clements, M. P., elicited the following reply:
House of Commons, Ottawa.
January 26, 1912.
Omineca Miner.
When question of postoffice
and postmaster is thoroughly decided by interested citizens of
New Hazelton, office to be established on Lot 882. I will see
that the office is opened immediately. Must be efficient postmaster,

Pneumonia Carries Off Well
Known Pioneer Citizen of
Hazelton���Funeral Sunday.
One of the best-known of Hazelton's pioneers crossed the Great
Divide yesterday morning, when
Thomas Olsen succumbed to a
severe attack of pneumonia. He
had been ill only a short time,
but his constitution, enfeebled by
previous illness, failed to withstand the disease.
Mr. Olsen, who came to Hazelton seventeen years ago, was in
his fifty-eighth year. For years
he conducted the Hazelton hotel,
and when the building burned,
two years ago, he demonstrated
his faith in the town by building
the present house. He had other
property interests in the district,
including an improved farm on
the other side of the Skeena,
where he spent much of his time.
The funeral, under the direction of Stephenson & Crum, will
take place on Sunday afternoon,
leaving the late residence of the
deceased at 2:30. Many who
esteemed Mr Olsen in life will
follow his remains to their last
esting-place.
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, January 25:���It is
stated here that the B. C. Alaska
railway company, which has held
a charter for some years, is
likely to be a bidder for the construction of the Vancouver-Peace
River line. The company is
represented in Victoria by A. E.
Harris, an American railway
builder of long experience. The
B. C. A. is planning to establish
headquarters in Vancouver and
become a Canadian concern. Two
officers of the company, it is said,
went over the proposed route
last summer and are fully prepared with data to submit to the
cabinet. A year ago the charter
was owned by New York financiers; but it is now in the hands
of a new set of capitalists, who
are said to have ample backing
to finance the proposed railway.
In addition to the Canadian
Pacific, Canadian Northern and
Grand Trunk Pacific, as likely
bidders, are Norton Griffiths &
Co., an English firm of railway
builders. Several weeks ago Norton Griffiths, head of the firm
and a member of the British
House of Commons, had an in-
teview with the Premier in Victoria. While here he said that
if a state-owned and state-operated railway was not in contemplation by the government, the
successful bidder will seek a
provincial guarantee of bonds,
similar to that given the Cana-

Sir William Mackenzie is now
in Victoria, conferring with Premier McBride and his colleagues.
It is expected here that the administration   will   make an an-
bridge in 60 days, they say.
Others who have just been over
the line express the opinion that
90 clays at least will elapse before the railhead will be at the
crossing. A gentleman who
should be well informed  told the
nouncement of its policy
the next two weeks.

of Royal Bank Yesterday.
THIRD BRANCH IS LOOTED
Bold Criminals Lock Bank Employees In

Without Difficulty Several Thousand
Stolen    Police Have No Clue.
(Special to Tho Miner)
Vancouver, January 26:���The
Mount Pleasant branch of the
Royal Bank of Canada here was
today the scene of a spectacular
hold-up. At noon two unmasked,
but armed, bandits jumped over
the counter and backed Teller
Richmond away from his revolver, kept on the desk for just
such emergencies. They then
backed the teller into the open
vault. Harrison, one of the bank
men, resisted and was felled by
a blow on the head with the butt
of a revolver. The other two
employes were forced into the
vault, which was then closed.
The bandits plundered the teller's
cash drawer. The amount taken
may be $5,000, but is in doubt,
as the manager refuses to make
any statement. The robbers made
a safe exit through the rear
door. There is no clue of any
description. This is the third
time in two years that branches
of this bank have been held up
in this city.
Freighters are Busy
Sleighroads are now in excellent condition, and freighting is
in progress, supplies being rapidly moved from Hazelton to all
parts of the district,
section 2. He said "It is the
first I or my lawyers have heard
of any appeal. Against what and
by whom is the appeal taken?
The question is beyond me. If
an appeal is possible it must be
under its agreement with the
railway. Personally he never
had any doubt of the government's position, but as others
had, he welcomes the verdict as
placing the matter beyond doubt.
C. N. R. Spends $5,000,000
Vancouver, Jan. 25: - Up to the
end of December the Canadian
Northern had expended $5,000,-
000 on railway construction in
British Columbia, ninety-five per
cent of that sum going for labor
and supplies, most of which were
purchased in Vancouver. It is
expected the railway's January
disbursements in this province
will aggregate a million dollars.
Amended Mining Statistics
Reports from the sub-recorder
at Kitselas, received since our
last issue,  increase the number
for the
issue of debentures for waterworks ancl electric power. The
house proceedings were brief.
Hon. Mr. Bowser said he had no
intention to re-introduce at this
session the Dower act, owing to
differences of opinion which developed in the last session, when
the bill only received a second
reading.
The government will inaugurate a sweeping change in the
Brewster Expects War
(Special to The Miner)
Victoria, Jan. 24:-H. C. Brewster, the opposition member, addressed the house today on his
motion urging the Dominion government to immediately proceed
to establish a naval unit on the
Pacific coast. He maintained that
it was not a political question,
and should not be treated in a
partisan spirit. The Pacific coast
was a strategetic point which
would be open to naval attack if
the empire were at war. Adequate measures should be taken
for defence. He spoke of the
awakening of Japan and China,
the approaching opening of the
Panama canal, ancl the possibility
of a conflict with Germany.
The Premier, speaking briefly
on the question, said there had
been a misunderstanding as to
the date when the matter should
be brought up for debate, for
which reason he was not prepared to proceed. The debate
was adjourned, tho date for its
resumption to be fixed later.

An Excellent Hospital Report
Another year of success and usefulness is shown by the annual
report of the Hazelton Hospital, presented at the annual meeting
of the patrons of the institution, held on Thursday evening. The
people of Hazelton and the district take great interest in the hospital. Its progress and success, keeping pace with the development of the district, are matters in which all find cause for pride.
To his skill as a practioneer Dr. Wrinch adds a large measure of
executive ability, as evidenced by the fact that, since the building
of the hospital, it has not been necessary to make an appeal to the
general public for funds. Large extensions to plant and building
have been added since the institution began its work and, while
the accommodation has at times been severely taxed, the superintendent ancl staff have always proven themselves equal to emergency.
The following figures, showing the number of patients accommodated during the last three years, indicate the growth of the
institution.
Year Patients Days Average
Admitted Treatment Days Stay
1908 103 3045 27.9
1909 153 3374 21.38
1910 220 4184 19.04
1911 257 5777 22.71
This indicates an  increase of 1658 days treatment in excess of
last year, being almost 40 per cent higher. This increase is found
almost entirely in the classes of white patients, the attendance of
Indians being only slightly higher than in last report.
This constant increase in hospital attendance does not indicate an
increased amount of sickness per capita. Rather it goes to show
that there has been a steady pouring in of population into the district, which is in reality a remarkably healthy one.
Of 268 patients under treatment at the Hospital during the year,
175 were discharged as cured and 55 as improved. The number
remaining on January 1st was 17. The patients came from many
parts of the district, and were of many nationalities.
Improvements during the year included an enlargement of the
kitchen ancl the addition of a separate room for laundry. Improved
kitchen equipment was installed, and an additional bathroom constructed, as well as a cold storage room for meats-and provisions.
A good deal of the interior of the main building has been repainted,
as well as the superintendent's residence.
For some time the need for an Xray apparatus has been more
and more apparent. During the year the question has been taken
up, ancl information sought as to the most feasible methods of obtaining the necessary power to operate this machine. The season
closed before an entirely satisfactory system could be found. It
seems impossible to operate it at all conveniently or economically
without having some kind of power plant in connection with the
hospital itself. Correspondence is still being carried on and it is
hoped that during the ensuing summer a practical solution of the
question will be arrived at.
Exact estimates of cost have not yet been obtained, but will not
be less than $1500.00 for machinery and fixtures. The excavating
and fitting up a cellar for the plant and other work incidental to
installing all this will probably bring the total cost up to nearly
$3000.00.
Provision for this necessary apparatus and an enlargement of the
sewage system will probably necessitate an appeal to the public for
funds, as the ordinary income of the Hospital, while sufficient for
maintenance, docs not suffice to cover extraordinary expenses.
Such an appeal will doubtless meet with a hearty response from
the public.
Following is a condensed statement of receipts and expenditures
during I'.e year:
On hand, cash, Dec. 31st, 1910, $335.97.
Receipts; from paying patients, 6550.50; voluntary contributions,
433.25; bequests, 100.00; provincial government, maintenance 2926.-
70, special grant, 500.00, total 3426.70; Indian department, maintenance grant, 1206.75; Missionary Society, 600.00; Women's Missionary Society, 900.00; other sources, 218.40; total receipts 13771.59.
Expenditures: Salaries, 3408.90; drug and surgical supplies, 716.-
25; Instruments and books, 109.78; Fuel and light, 1517.50; maintenance, 3517.15; freight and cartage, 1081.46; furniture, 434.87;
new buildings and material, 2147.93; repairs, 446.57; fencing, clearing and outside improvements, 307.52; postage, telegrams and
stationery, 91.70; miscellaneous, 43.75. Total expenditures, 13823.38.
Balance due treasurer, 51.79. Other liabilities, 840.00. Income
earned during 1911 and not yet received, 1878.00. Credit balance,
986.21.
The Hospital administration is to be congratulated on the excellent showing made during the year, financially and otherwise.
The people of the district served by the institution will not be slow
to recognise its value and show their appreciation in substantial
form.
Busy Year For Police
During the year the Hazelton
police staff was fairly busy, as
evidenced by the returns, which
include 362 police court cases.
Convictions were obtained in all
but eighteen, while fines exceeding $15,000 were collected. Forty-
two cases were brought under
the liquor act, resulting in 35
convictions and the imposition of
fines aggregating $8,950. Indians
drunk or in possession of liquor
numbered 104 and 36 convictions
for supplying liquor to natives
were obtained. There was a
notable scarcity of felony charges, testifying to the efficiency
of the force.

Do You Realize
that, in a town such as NEW HAZELTON will be, in order to own the best property you must be on
the inside?
Six or seven blocks in the business center of any town or city always command the highest figures.
Outside this radius property values decrease in direct ratio as the distance from this center increases.
GET IN THE BUSINESS CENTER
In NEW HAZELTON this business center will be created by the Old Hazelton Business Men
themselves. To any who have not already bought we advise immediate action, as outside buyers are
quick to realize this point and are snapping up lots surrounding where Old Hazelton people have bought.
Get In the Business Center
Now, you may say, "I'll wait. I may not want to continue in business in this district, or if I do, I
may be able to get in cheaper after awhile."
In answer to such an argument we would say that every indication points to an era of prosperity for
this district undreamed of before. HAZELTON is on the tip of everyone's tongue all over the continent, and a rush of population and capital to the district is assured for the coming spring. You know we
have the resources and attractions to keep them here.

Probable That Spinners and
Operators Will Agree���
��00,000 Coal Miners May
Strike March 1st.
London, Jan. 25:���All indications point to peace in the labor
world. Both sides in the cotton
dispute in the Lancashire districts are anxious for a settlement. It is understood that the ;
employers will consent to con-
sider the question of an advance
in wa^es in conjunction with the
withdrawal of the operatives'
demand for recognition of only
union labor, If an agreement is
reached it is probable that the
wages of the weavers will be ad-1
vahced five percent, at the expiration of three months.
Coal dealers are reaping a rich
harvest as a consequence of the
ballot of the coal miners which
unofficial    reports   state  to   be I
largejy in favor of a united strike |
for a fixed minimum wage.   The j
dispute   affects    about   900,0001
men.    There is no doubt that the
requisite two-thirds majority in j
favor of a strike  has  been  secured but the act does not necessarily  mean  that the strike will
occur,  for  the   employers  and
workers have until the end of
February to reach a settlement.
The admiralty is storing big
reserves of coal and orders have
been issued to commanders on
warships to economize and utilize
oil fuel as much as possible.
Doukhobors May Move

so well patronized by the people
of New Hazelton and the surrounding district, that in future

Decided on Churchill
Ottawa, Jan. 25: It is understood that it has been practically
decided by the government to
select Fort Churchill as the terminal of the Hudson Bay route.
The report of the surveyors and
hydrographers who accompanied
the steamer Stanley to the Bay
in 1910 is strongly in favor of
Fort Churchill. It was stated;
that Port Nelson was too shallow
and the ship could not get even
within sight of land.

Peace River Line
Victoria, Jan. 21: No formal
offers have yet been received by
the government from any railway interests in the matter of
the construction of the proposed
railway from the lower mainland
to the Peace River country.
It is well-known, however, that
the representatives of many railways have had informal discussions with Premier McBride in
connection with the project, and
it is reported that Sir William
Mackenzie, president of the Canadian Northern, will reach Victoria in a day or two. It is generally presumed that his mission
is to acquaint himself with the
plans of the government on the
Peace River line.

will address a meeting in lavorof
