VOL. IV, NO. 45
The 62nd Battalion, the latest
corps organized in this province,
for service at the front, will include some two hundred husky
men from Northern British Columbia. With the first detachment, which left Prince Rupert
on Thursday for the Vernon
camp, were the following men
who enlisted in Hazelton:
John White, Gerard Gore, Geo.
Boe, James P. McLeod, Peter
Christenson, and David Mitchell.
Government Agent Hoskins is
still in receipt of applications to
join the 62nd, and another lot of
men will leave next week to join
the regiment.
Annual School Meeting
The annual school meeting will
be held in Hazelton schoolhouse
on Tuesday evening, July 13,
at 8 p. m. A trustee, to serve
three years, is to be elected to
succeed W. W. Anderson, whose
term has expired. An auditor is
also to he chosen, to succeed H.
H. Little.
Picnic Postr">ned
Today's rain has necessitated
the postponement of the annual
general picnic, which was to
have been held in the Hospital
park this afternoon. The date
will be fixed later.
Staked Placer Ground
John Young and James Bea-
man returned on Monday from
the Manson district. Mr. Young
has located hydraulic leases on
Boulder and Dream Creeks,
which run into Manson Lake and
Silver Creek respectively. Early
development on a large scale is
looked for in the Omineca river
and Manson district, where rich
ground is being uncovered by
the outfits at present working.
Washington: The arrival of the
press translation of the German
note confirmed the impressions
which have been current in official circles for several days, that
Germany would refuse to give
the assurance asked for by the
United States, that the lives of
Americans traveling the high
seas on unarmed ships of any
nationality be not endangered.
Washington: In the discussion
on the German note, the general
opinion is that the United States
is bound to take action as a result of the German unwillingness
to concede the right of Americans to travel on merchantmen
of any nationality. Germany's
evasion of liability for the loss of
lives on the Lusitania has caused
an acute discussion. It is believed the severance of diplomatic
relations will come, with an announcement that the U. S. will
assert her full rights if further
violation occurs.
London: A feeling of optimism
is due to the capture of German
Southwest Africa, the stubborn
resistance of the Russians, and
the repulse of German efforts on
the western front. Lord Kitchener and Premier Asquith have
returned from a conference with
Generals Joffre and French.
London: Further gains north
of Ypres, where the British, on
July 6, captured two hundred
yards of German trenches, are
reported in a despatch ffom
Field-Marshal Sir John French,
last night. General French
states that after a bombardment
lasting two nights and two days
the Germans fell back, enabling
the British to extend their Rains.
All reports, says the Field-Marshal, indicate that the. German
losses were severe. Field-Marshal French reports as follows:
"Since the successful enterprise north of Ypres, reported on
July   6, "the   enemy   has   made
repeated attempts to retake his
lost trenches. All his counterattacks have been stopped by the
successful co-operation of our
own   and  the French artillery.
"This, morning after a bombarding duel lasting two days
and two nights, the enemy fell
back along the canal, .enabling
us to extend our gains. In addition to the prisoners already
reported we captured a number
of machine guns and three trench
mortars. All reports indicate
that the enemy's losses, particularly in his counter-attacks, have
been severe."
London: Turkish forces from
Yemen (southwest Arabia), supported by Arabs, are threatening
Aden, the British tree port, "according to an official report issued
by the press bureau last night.
The Turks, with a large number
of Arabs and field guns, crossed
the Aden hinterland near Lahej.
compelling a British force to fall
back on Aden, on July 5.
The athletic association is negotiating for a series of three
ball games with the Prince
George team, to be played here
on July 23-24-25. The local nine
expects to turn the tables on tke
fast players from George, if arrangements can be made to bring
them here. Subscriptions for
the expense fund are now being
received by the secretary, S. J.
Martin, and there is no doubt
sufficient money will be guaranteed to ensure the series.
Bomb Plot Failed
New York: Nine bombs, each
big enough to blow up a 25,000
ton steamer, were found on the
steamer Kirkoswald, when the
vessel unloaded a cargo of sugar
at Marseilles from New York.
The bombs were hidden in bags
of sugar and failed to explode.
Settled Out of Court
Forester R. E. Allen returned
on Monday from Vancouver,
where he was in attendance at
the trial of his suit against S. N.
Long for a share of the purchase
price of claims on Glen Mountain,
located by the defendant under a
grubstake agreement. On the
recommendation of the judge,
the case was settled out of court,
in a manner satisfactory to both

Petrograd (official):"On Friday
at the entrance of Danzig Ray, a
submarine with two torpedoes
blew up a German warship of
the Deutschlander class, which
was steaming at the head of a
German squadron. One of our
destroyers rammed a German
submarine which was attempting
to approach our warships. The
submarine failed to reappear on
the surface. Our destroyer suffered slight damage in the collision.
Rome (official):"Along the entire front the situation remains
unchanged. An artillery action
of an intense nature was continued against the works at Mal-
borgetto and Predil, causing
serious damage and very heavy
explosions. The enemy attempted a violent counter-attack yesterday, against our position on
Carnian plateau, but were repulsed after leaving in our hands
about 200 prisoners."
Paris (official): "There have
been quite spirited artillery actions in Belgium in the region of
Nieuport and on the Steenstraate
Hetsas front, as well as the
sector north of Arras. On the
right bank of the Aisne, in the
neighborhood of Paissy, mining
operations continue.    In the Ar
gonne engagements with hand
grenades and torpedoes occurred
but no infantry action. On the
Heights of the Meuse and in the
Vosges there has been merely

London: Reports from Flanders tell of fierce fighting on the
section of the Allied line held by
the British and Canadian troops,
resulting in an important advance
marked by the capture of German trenches on the east side of
the canal, southeast of  Pilliken.
In the Dardanelles, Turkish
troops, under Enver Bey, were
driven from their trenches by
the Ghurkas.
Rome (official): One of our
dirigibles bombarded and seriously damaged the cantonment at
Trieste last night. The airship
returned undamaged.
Rome: The following communication was issued last night: "The
artillery fire against the Austrian
defensive works at Malborghetto
(Malborgeth and Predil) continues effectively. Our offensi ve on
the Carnic plateau is developing
successfully. In engagements
yesterday 400 Austrians were
taken prisoners. Our dirigibles
have successfully bombarded the
enemy encampments in the
vicinity of Dobebo and Dornberg-
Proacina railway line,   damaging
the Proacina junction and station
The dirigibles were tired  on but
returned undamaged.
The Hague: Swiss, seeking to
return home, via Holland, England and France, being unable to
reach Switzerland because of the
closure of the German - Swiss
frontier, declare this stringent
German order i? connected with
the large massing of troops at
Neu Breisach, Muelhausen and
Hueningen. This, they say, is
preparatory to an attempt to
drive the French from the conquered Alsatian territory.
Paris: Yesterday's communique
said: There has been relative
calm along the whole front,
without infantry action. There
was nothing to report except
artillery duels between the Meuse
and the Moselle. The region of
the forest of Le Pretre has suffered particularly by a very
violent bombardment with big

"The mining situation in this province," says P. A. O'Farrell,
a well-known mining writer, "never before looked ho prosperous,
so profitable or so hopeful as at the present time. The mines in
the Kootenays are producing more now than at any other time in
previous history. The output of gold from the Rowland district; H
alone is at the rate of $5,000,000 a year. The operators hope that'. *
before long it will be possible to have gold and copper ore refined | ���
as well as smelted in this province. Facilities are greatly needed. ^
Over 40,000 tons of lead a year are now being mined. The ^
production is expected to be increased to 60,000 before long.    More   jj
than 100,000 tons of zinc could be pronuced if there were only
plants enough to handle the mineral. At present .ore has to be
shipped to the United States for treatment. The Kootenays ought
to be turning out 100.000 tons of lead and a similar quantity of zinc
yearly, and could do if only proper facilities wave provided."
By the untimely death of Duncan Ross, which occurred last
week at his home in Victoria, the province loses an energetic and
useful citizen. Mr. Ross whs well-known in this district, having sj
successfully completed three contracts on the construction of this; %
section of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway. He was prominent in *
politics, on the Liberal side, and was a forceful campaigner. His 8
demise al the age of 45 is regretted by all who enjoyed bis; ���
acquaintance, irrespective of p'llitics, for although a consistent ,Z
Liberal, he possessed the rare faculty of making and holding ���
friends in the opposite camp. Graduating from the newspaper aj
field to that of politics, he represented Yale Cariboo in the Dominion   g|
bouse of commons for one term, and in 1911 unsuccessfully contested this district against the present member. General sympathy
will be extended to his widow and daughters.

Calais as the objective.

west of the middle Niemen, on the Allied troops along the west-
the Narew front and on the  left
bank of the Vistula, no essential
change has occurred. On the
front between the Vistula and
the river Bug extremely desperate fighting took place Sunday
evening and Monday morning in
the sector of Uizendow Rychawa
(north of Krasnik). The offensive of the enemy east of Krasnik was stopped by a blow
which we delivered on their
flank on the heights northwestof
Wilkolaz. There we inflicted
serious losses on the enemy,
capturing on Monday morning
more than two thousand prisoners, including 29 officers, while
about two thousand of the en
emy's men lay dead before oui
trenches. We repulsed yesterday new attempts to an offensive
between Wieprz and the western
Bug, as well as on the village of
Krylow. Along the upper Bug,
the Ziota Lipa and Dniester, no
fighting took place on Sunday or
on Monday morning.
Paris (official): British troops
have repulsed several counterattacks directed against trenches
they occupied last night, southwest of Piliken. They captured
eighty prisoners and inflicted
heavy losses on the enemy. The
Germans bombarded Arras, and
in particular the cathedral, with
incendiary shells. Rheims, likewise has been shelled. In Argonne there has been cannonading
but no infantry action on the
heights of Meuse. We have
retaken a trench-work where the
Germans had gained foothold and
succeeded in maintaining from
June 27, and we have pushed
beyond that.
ern battlefront was described as
excellent by Dr. G. Sterling
Ryerson, president of the Canadian Red Cross and surgeon-
general of the Canadian forces,
who reached here today on the
steamship Espapne, from Havre.
"Duiing my absence I visited
almost the entire battlefront
along the Aisne and theMarne."
Dr. Ryerson said, "I found the
condition of the Canadian and
Allied troops excellent, as well
as the spirit of the men."
"Within two months there will
be put under way, along the entire western front, a tremendous
drive, which will be the greatest
that this war has seen. General
Joff re recently said that the Germans would be out of France by
the first of the coming year, and
from what I have seen and heard
I have every reason to believe
they will be. The war will be
over in another year and the
Germans will be defeated. The
Allied troops have no lack of
equipment, and their general
health is excellent."
Pretoria: After a long running
fight through miles of thorn
brush, where the opposing forces

back on the seventh. On Odkitz
river, the enemy, during the
night of the sixth , attacked our
trenches southwest of the village
of Jednorojetz. A few score
Germans held their ground in
front of our trenches until dawn,
but were almost all killed by our
fire when they tried to retire.
During the day the enemy again
attacked the same trenches, but
everywhere were repulsed with
heavy losses. On the left bank
of the Vistula, during the night
of the sixth, the enemy, under
cover of enormous clouds of
poisonous gases, developed attacks in the direction of Bolimow.
On a front of about 8 miles he
succeeded, in some sectors, in
capturing our first line trenches,
but by counter-attacks next day
we dislodged him and recovered
our position, except in the sector
near Bolimow road, where the
fighting still continues.
Between the small towns of
Seinno and tho village of Josefor
the enemy on the 7th delivered
no attacks. Our troops in the
direction of Lublin, continued to
develop an offensive which we

zendoff and Bystrijitza. Our
men dealt the enemy terrible
blows and between the fifth and
seventh took about eleven thousand prisoners, while they captured several dozen machine
guns and a flag. In this sector
the enemy is in retreat and we
are pursuing him. There is no
change on the Bug, Ziota Lipa
and Dniester rivers,
Paris (official communication):
In Belgium a German attack,
directed against the trenches
which the British troops occupied
on July 6, southwest of Pilkem,
came under the fire of the British
artillery and our field guns and
was dispersed with heavy losses.
Between Angres and Souchez the
enemy made a new attack against
our positions north of the road
between Bethune and Arras, but
was repulsed. North of Souchez
station a violent counter-attack
was attempted by the Germans,
with the object of regaining the
trenches of which we had made
ourselves the masters on the
evening before. They were successful only in occupying about
100 yards on a front of 800 yards
of our gains.
