THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER IN NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
��" ���   f  ���*���_.*��
VOL. IV, NO. 1
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1914
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
FOR THE PATRIOTIC FUND
Hazelton District Will  Re.pond to Appeal of Governor-General���Subscription List Opens on Monday
In response to the appeal of
the Duke of Connaught for a
patriotic fund to be used in assisting those dependent on Canada's soldiers who have gone to
the front, subscription lists have
been opened in all parts of the
Dominion, and Canadians of all
classes are subscribing liberally.
It is certain, however, that an
enormous sum will be required if
members of Canada's army are
to be assured that those they
leave behind them will not suffer
privation. In order that the
people of Hazelton and the district may have an opportunity to
do their share in raising a patriotic fund, it has been arranged
that the managers of the Union
Bank and Royal Bank here will
receive sums intended for the
fund, and that all subscriptions
will be acknowledged in The
Miner. This list will be opened
on Monday, and a liberal response
is looked for. The Women's
Auxiliary has already announced
that all receipts this year will be
devoted to the patriotic fund.
Through Railway Service
It is reported in Prince Rupert
that the G. T. P. will run trains
through to Edmonton and Winnipeg next week. The Hazelton
agent has had no advice of the
change.
Through freight rates on the
G. T. P. went into effect on Sept.
1, meaning a reduction in Hazelton's freight bills.
In the absence of Rev. Mr.
Hewitt, who goes to Smithers
today, the Methodist Church
services tomorrow will be conducted by Dr. Wrinch.
PASSING OrSEA WOLF"
Vancouver, Sept. 5:���Captain
Alex. McLean, known in every
Pacific port as the original of
London's "Sea Wolf," was found
dead in False Creek yesterday.
He had evidently met with foul
play. In the course of his adventurous career, he had been a
mate on one of the Skeena river
steamers.
VAST INVADING ARMY DRAWS NEAR PARIS
GERMAN ADVANCE MADE AT APPALLING COST-
ALLIES' LINE UNBROKEN-RUSSIANS' BIG VICTORY
London, Sept 5:���A midnight despatch from Paris says there is
no change in the situation. The Germans are twenty-five miles
from Paris, but have made no attempt on the position of the Allies.
Both armies are taking up positions preparatory to another great
battle. It is believed the Germans are planning a furious attack
on the weakest Paris fort.
In the great engagement near Amiens nearly a million men
were engaged. The British force withdrew to new positions,
fighting all lhe way. At no time were their lines broken through.
The river Oise is said to be choked with the dead and red with
blood.   The losses have not yet been made known.
Seven German destroyers and torpedo boats have arrived at
Kiel in damaged condition and it is understood others have been
sunk near the Kiel Canal. This is thought to indicate another raid
by British warships, although some believe the report refers to a
previous fight.
The Russian defeat of Austria's army at Lemberg was one of
the most crushing in history. It has put out of action one-quarter
of the Austrian first line troops, while Russia has possession of
one-quarter of Austria's artillery and commands all roads between
Galicia and Hungary. The Russian armies are still advancing in
eastern Germany.
It is reported that 80,000 Russian troops have been brought in
British transports from Archangel, Northern Russia, to Scotland,
thence by train to Dover, and by steamer to Antwerp.
The sacking of Louvain, Belgium, by the Germans is described
by well-informed writers as the crime of the century. Details
grow in horror.
Premier Asquith, in addressing a notable gathering in Guildhall yesterday impressed upon the people of the Empire the urgency
of the situation and the necessity of obtaining recruits. He announced that up to the present 300,000 had responded to Lord Kitchener's call. The Empire had entered with clear judgment and
clear conscience, he said, into the bloody arbitrament of might
versus right.       	
Ottawa, Sept. 5:���-It is announced that the Canadian government has approved the payment of a monthly allowance of $20 to
the families of married Canadians going to the front.
Forty thousand Canadians are under arms, 32,000 being at
Valcartier.  ��� Two hundred thousand are anxious to serve.
are reported to be within sixty miles of the French capital, having
reached Le Fere. The removal of the French capital to Bordeaux
is being considered.
Italy is said to be preparing to invade Bosnia and Herzegovina.
It is also stated that if Turkey, as threatened, declares war against
Greece, Italy will declare war on Turkey.
Germans are making great efforts to crush the British force in
France. Seventy thousand British for three days held in check
two hundred thousand Germans. The position of the troops is not
stated.
A big battle is expected on Wednesday, the anniversary ofthe
battle of Sedan. Additional French forces totalling 600,000 will be
ready for service in six weeks.
A great storm is raging on the coast of Japan, below Tokio.
The Japanese have begun the bombardment of the Kiau Chau forts.
Many tributes have been paid throughout the world to the
bravery and daring of the British in the Heligoland and Mons engagements. Lord Kitchener says the British land force is in excellent condition for the next battle.
Vancouver, Aug. 31:���Valcartier reports an unsuccessful attempt to wreck a troop train ninety miles east of Montreal. An
iron rail had been placed across the track.
The Leipzig story is still denied. A German merchant steamer arriving at San Francisco reports having been chased by the
German cruiser.
Cardinals Choose New Pope
Rome, Sept. 3:���The new Pope
is Cardinal Delia Chiesa, who
was archbishop of Bologna and
secretary to the late Cardinal
Rompolla. He is sixty years of
age. He will assume the title of
Benedict XV. The choice of
Cardinal Chiesa was not made
until to-day, although balloting
has    been    in    progress   since
Monday.	
W.A.
The ladies of Hazelton will
meet at the Mission House on
Thursday, Sept. 10, at 3;15 p.m.
This being the first meeting of
the season, and the object the
Patriotic Fund, it is hoped that
every lady will do her best to be
present.
The Junior W. A. will meet on
Tuesday afternoon at 3:30, at
Misssion House,
The Miner is two dollars a year,
THE MINER'S WAR BULLETINS
London, Aug. 30:���The admiralty announces that the British
casualties in the naval battle off Heligoland'were two officers and
twenty-seven men killed and nineteen seriously wounded. Eleven
German vessels of all sizes were destroyed in the action. Three
of these were cruisers. The enemy's loss in killed and drowned is
unknown. Over two hundred Germans were rescued, many dying
of their wounds enroute to the English hospitals. Ninety prisoners, from one sunken cruiser alone, are now in England, eight being
officers. One is the son of Admiral Tiplitz, the German naval
minister.
_Apia, the principal German port in Samoa, has surrendered to
the British warships.
The British losses in France have already been replaced, and
General French is confident of final success, believing that one decisive victory for the Allies will prove fatal to the Germans.
The British Army has not been engaged to any great extent
since Wednesday.
While the Germans are reported to be within seventy miles of
Paris, it is reported that they have sent 160 trainloads of soldiers
east from the Franco-German frontier, presumably to guard Berlin
or meet the victorious Russian army, which occupies Konigsberg.
The Russians are also advancing in central and southern Prussia
and Galicia.
An Austrian despatch to Rome says a million men have been
fighting for the last three days on the Russo-Austrian frontier,
from the Vistula to the Dneister. Russians have penetrated twenty miles into Austria.
A German aeroplane, flying at a height of six thousand feet,
dropped a bomb into Paris this morning, just missing the military
hospital and doing no damage.
Washington, Aug. 30: The German embassy declares that
Turkey is preparing to make war against Britain and Russia. Berlin says the British were defeated at San Quentin, their retreat
being barred by German cavalry.
Paris, Aug. 30:���In anticipation of a siege, the governor has
ordered residents within the zone of active fortifications to destroy
their hou'ses within four days. The order is received without complaint. Great piles of provisions have been placed in warehouses,
and many cattle are pasturing in the Bois Boulogne. Ten thousand
sheep have been placed in the parks.
Vancouver, Aug. 30:���There are persistent rumors that the
Rainbow and Montcalm have captured the Leipzig, of Cape Flattery, and are towing it to Esquimalt. One paper says 120 were
killed.     Victoria tonight denies the report.
London, Aug. 31:--No sea battles or important land engagements were reported today. Paris continues preparations for
siege.    Thousands of civilians are leaving the city,    The Germans
London, Sept. 1:���No official statements have been made today
in London, Paris or Berlin. The censors have drawn a veil of
secrecy similar to that noticeable during the fighting at Mons,
Cambrai and Lareteau, therefore it is believed a great battle is being fought, probably in the vicinity of La Fere, sixty miles from
Paris. A despatch from Nieppe says a battle is raging a Croisil-
les, fifteen miles from Cambrai.
Prince Von Buelow has been wounded in battle. The German
general Haelen is dead.
An unconfirmed report from Berlin saya the Germans defeated
120,000 Russians at Allenstein and took 70,000 prisoners.
Bucharest reports that the Austrian army, attempting t > cross
the Vistula into Russia, were defeated by the Russians, with a loss
of 20,000.
Emperor William is reported to have left the western army, to
rally the eastern forces against the Russians.
In retaliation for the burning of the Belgian city of Louvain,
it is said, the Russians intend to destroy a great German city,
probably Berlin. Thousands of citizens of the German capital are
leaving for neutral countries. In Louvain, the Germans murdered
hundreds, including the mayor and other officials, before firing the
city.
Antwerp reports that two German cavalry divisions of 12,000
were destroyed in Belgium. The French forces under General Pan
are believed to have won a great victory near Peronne, east of
Amiens.
The Queen of Belgium and her children are now in London.
The Prince of Wales' relief fund now amounts to over ten
millions.
Turkey has mobilized its army, with 200,000 in the first line.
An Austrian army, supported by the fleet, attacked the Montenegrin position. British and French warships scattered the
fleet, and the Montenegrins won the engagement.
London, Sept 3:���The Times states that although the Allies
l)ave again been forced to withdraw by overwhelming numbers of Germans, the line of defence is still intact, and the Germans are unable to break through, while the French and British armies are
gaining in strength all the time.
The French government offices were removed this morning
from Paris to Bordeaux. The German forces are now within fifty
miles of the outer forts defending Paris on the east, and preparations for a siege continue. The city is surrounded by eighteen
forts.
The left wing of the allied armies has altered its position, the
right and center remaining unchanged. No general engagement
in France yesterday.
German aeroplanes have dropped more bombs into Paris and
Antwerp, without doing serious damage to either city.
After a desperate fight at Lemberg, in Austria, the Russians
overcame the stubborn resistance of the Austrians and took the
city. The Russians admit a serious reverse to two army corps,
with the loss of three generals. The place is not stated. They
claim success in the advance of their other three armies, the north,
center and southern, in Prussia. The objective of the latter is
Koenigsbutte, from whence it is intended to march co Berlin, via
Breslau.
The Russians routed the Austrians near Lustchoff on August
28, taking one hundred officers and four thousand men prisoner
and capturing twenty guns.
Berlin is said to be guarded by several army corps.
A Paris despatch says a German cavalry corps marching towards the forest of Compiegne, in Oise, on the left wing of the
Allies, engaged the British on Tuesday. The British captured ten
guns. Losses are not given. Twenty miles southeast of Compiegne, a German force was defeated by the Allies. Reports say
bodies were piled yards high, an entire German division being annihilated by French artilkry.

OACKFR0IR0MINECARIVER
Mining   Man Has High Opinion of  Big
Placer District���More Ground to
Be Developed Next Year
R. D. Fetherstonhaugh, the
well-known mining man, who
represents the Omineca Exploration Syndicate of Edmonton, returned on Tuesday from an exploration trip through the Omineca mining district. He has
taken up some very promising
properties on the Omineca and
Peace rivers for the syndicate,
and says active development will
be carried on next year. Mr.
Fetherstonhaugh went down the
Manson river as far as the Finlay, taking the packhorses
through with him, and reports
no difficulties in the way of making a good trail all the way.
Such a trail would be of great
service to prospectors and homesteaders. There was a great
number of prospecting parties
through the district this year,
and things begin to look like
"something doing" in the near
future. Quite a number have
taken up homesteads along the
Finlay this year and are busy
building cabins and preparing to
improve their holdings. Nearly
all the mining going on at present
is in the nature of development
work, and large returns cannot be
looked for this season. Mr.
Fetherstonhaugh has promised to
send us a detailed account of his
trip and the properties taken up
after he has reported to his principals. He is very enthusiastic
over the prospects of the Omineca district as soon as transportation facilities are improved,
but thinks the government should
pay more attention to the Manson
trail, which is deteriorating, he
says, no serious work having
been done on it for the last two
years.

Saturday, September 5, 1914.
No. 1
Canada is sending thousands of her best men to take their
place in the battle line of the British Empire. Every Canadian is
confident that our troops will display those qualities of pluck and
endurance which have distinguished the British soldiers in the conflict with Germany, even as the same qualities have in the past
brought victory to thc Empire's forces in many a hard-fought campaign. It is not enough, however, that we who remain securely at
home should feel confidence in those who have undertaken to fight
our battles. We must remember that many of Canada's soldiers
are leaving behind them families who must be provided for, and
every Canadian must heed the appeal of the Duke of Connaught,
as governor-general, for subscriptions to the Canadian patriotic
fund. This fund, which'is rapidly growing, will be used to make
provision for those whose breadwinners have gone to the front, and
every dollar that can be raised will be needed for the purpose.
We urge our readers to do their part by sending in their subscriptions to the Hazelton fund, particulars of which are given in our
news columns.
AN AMERICAN VIEW
Emperor William, the government of the C-erman Empire,
neglects no opportunity to prejudice his cause before the impartial jury of the world.
He has indorsed the indefensible action of Austria against
Servia. He has declared war on
Russia in order, if possible, to
prevent it from assisting the
Servians. He has bullied and
invaded France before the French
had taken a step toward war.
In. wanton disregard of the treaty
that binds Germany to respect
and safeguard the neutrality of
Belgium he has violated the
neutrality of Belgium, Holland
and Luxemburg and endeavored
to coerce Belgium into actively
aisistingGermanyagainstFrance.
He has tried to cajole England
into disregard of her duties as
the declared friend of France.
In England he meets with his
match. The British know their
duties toward Belgium, France
and themselves and dare main
tain their rights. They have
been slow to move. They have
not allowed themselves to be
swept off their feet. They have
not committed a single act of aggression or provocation. But
they stand under solemn treaty
obligation to protect the neutrality of Belgium, and under some
sort of obligation to defend
France if assailed. They stand
by their word. They tell the
Teutonic war lord to his face that
he must respect the neutrality of
Belgium or tak�� the consequences.
England could not honorably
or sagaciously do else than what
she has done. To have left helpless Belgium to its fate would
have been cowardice, folly and
shame. The Teutonic menace to
the peace of Europe has to be
met and must be confronted by
some power. German professions of g<;od faith and sincerity
can not be trusted. In 'the
providence of God it has fallen
to England to withstand William
of Germany as she a century ago
withstood and overthrew Napoleon the Great.-  The Spokesman
Review.
	
Gold is the standard of all'
wealth and the measure of its
exchange. The man or woman
who would belittle the integrity
or make light of the worthiness
or the desirability of an honest
gold mining investment offer,
honestly made by honest men,
laughs to scorn the very foundation of wealth.- Ex.
Rocher de Boule to Continue
Notwithstanding the fact that
smelters are closing down and
copper mines suspending operations or curtailing their production, the blight of terrible war
will not fall as heavily on our
immediate district as we had
feared.
The management of the Rocher
de Boule mine have announced
that they will continue their op.
erations with full speed ahead,
and market their product as soon
as they are in a position to do so.
The big crosscut tunnel should
penetrate the ore body within a
couple of weeks, and the aerial
tramway is nearing completion
and will soon be in working condition. It is assured that long
before the snow flies each day
will see a hundred or more tons
of ore from this mine on its way
to the smelters, which have already signified their desire to
handled its output.
The crosscut on the Great Ohio
is encountering conditions which
indicate close proximity to the
big vein, and it seems but a
matter of days until this mine
will be turning out ore.
The Red Hose, which is regarded as the most promising
undeveloped property in the district, has been attracting much
attention during the past month,
and several parties have been
endeavoring to make terms with
its fortunate owners.
Fresh discoveries of a most
promising character have been
recently made in a hitherto un-
prospected part of the district,
and taking it all along the line
from a straight mining viewpoint, our local conditions are
more favorable at this time than
have been hoped for by the most
sanguine.
The horrors of a terrible war
touch us all most deeply, but we
derive some little consolation
from the fact that we are not
drones, and that in forcing wealth
from Nature's strongbox we are
helping in some measure to
strengthen and enrich the
country in which we abide. The
Chalcopyrite.
TO HELP MINING INDUSTRY
Victoria, Sept. 2:���Strenuous
efforts are being made by the
mining interests of British Columbia, particularly those in the
Kootenay and Slocan districts,
to devise ways and means to
meet the new situation as a result of the war, and insure that
the producing properties of the
country shall not be forced to
close down. To this end several
conferences have been held in
the last couple of days between
Sir Richard McBride and Lome
A. Campbell, M. P. P., of Rossland, representing the mining
interests of the interior.
In an interview, Mr. Campbell
explained the position of the
silver-lead industry. Prior to
the outbreak of the war, the
mines were in good condition and
there were few clouds on the
horizon. With the war and the
immediate collapse of order in
the financial markets throughout
the world, came the disruption of
the metal markets, making it impossible to get quotatious or ascertain metal values. This situation only revealed an opportunity, as a result of the war, and
it is this new situation which is
now being surveyed.
Just prior to the outbreak of
the war, Great Britain secured
all the available lead supplies
open to purchase. It is assumed
that she is still in the market for
all the lead she can get. The
silver-lead mines of British Columbia produce comparatively
very little silver, but they do
produce a considerable quantity
of lead, which can be refined in
the province, It ia this phase
of the matter to which Mr.
Campbell ia now engaged in directing the attention of both the
federal and provincial governments. His idea is, roughly,
that the federal government
should purchase what silver is
produced in British Columbia and
make whatever arrangements
may be necessary to insure that
the mines shall not be shut down,
to the end that the lead which
Great Britain requires shall be
supplied in quantity by the mines
of this province. The question
is one which involves many considerations, but Mr. Campbell
has received such assurances
for Sir Richard McBride as to
lead him to be hopeful that the
problem will be solved satisfactorily.
Apropos of the suggestion advanced in some quarters that in
view of the situation this winter
it might be desirable for some of
the larger employers of labor to
work their staffs only half time,
Mr. Campbell said he was opposed to the idea. He thought that
the better way to meet the problem of threatened ememployment
would be to keep the staff employed full time, at reduced pay,
if emergency measures of this
kind are forced on employers.
The Miner is two dollars a year.

An Important Discovery
���(From The Chalcopyrite)
Geo. T. Fryer, 'an old time
prospector and mining man, recently of Los Angeles, California,'
but now of Skeena Crossing, has
certainly made good during the
month he has spent in this district. Two weeks ago he went
into the nearby hills wjth a couple of Indian packers, and after
being out four or five days returned to the Crossing with
twenty-five or thirty pounds of as
fine-looking copper ore as we
have seen in the district.
This ore came from a vein
which Mr. Fryer discovered about
ten miles distant from the Crossing, in a hitherto unprospected
section which had been previously
ignored because it was considered
to be outside the established limits of the mineral zone.
The vein, which, like the Rocher de Boule, is a fissure in granite, is from four to six feet wi..*-,
and outcrops for a distance of
two thousand feet. The ore is
identical in character with that
of the Rocher de Boule vein, and
Mr. Fryer declares that from a
surface standpoint it is the best
looking thing he has seen in the
district. He found other showings, somewhat different in character, in the same locality, and
has made several locations.
That he has much- confidence
in this district is demonstrated
by the fact that he has entered
into an agreement with the owners of the well-known Panama
group, whereby he is to do a certain amount of development work
for an interest therein.
The Panama group is adjoined
on the north by the Red Rose
group, which is now being negotiated for by English capitalists.
Mr. Fryer has already begun
operations and has several men
on the ground, building a cabin
anddoing other preliminary work.

THE MINER'S WAR BULLETINS
(Continued from Page One)
Captain Bertram Denison, of Toronto, serving with the York-
shirefrifahtry' in "Belgium,  was"the first Canadian to be killed in
the war.
A Shanghai report says fifty transports are loading a hundred
thousand Japanese troops at Nagasaki, for service in France.
Berlin newspapers publish reports that Canada and Australia are
on the verge of revolt.
Vancouver,  Sept. 2:���Ottawa states the total number of men
Canada can send for foreign service is 100,000.
New York reports that Turkey has declared war on Russia. No
news has been received from Constantinople for three days. Turkey's declaration of war against Greece is expected within a day or
two.
London, Sept. 4,���A crisis in the conflict between the Allies
and the Germans in France appears to be imminent, the invaders
having evidently thrown the' full weight of their armies into the
French campaign, with the purpose of smashing their way through
to Paris.
The Germans are nearing the French capital, but have difficulty in keeping their lines of communication open across France
and Belgium. The Allies evidently intend to cut them off from
Germany. The success of the vast Russian armies in Prussia and
Austria make it imperative for Germany to reinforce her army at
home.
A Paris despatch says thousands of Germans were trapped
yesterday in Compiegnes and cut to pieces by the French, who refused an armistice. The same authority reports an important
battle at Bapaume Thursday and Friday. In a dense fog a British
force unexpectedly arrived and occupied the French position, allowing weary French troops to retire, and then, though hard pressed,
fighting a magnificent rear-guard action against a greatly superior
number of Germans with many machine guns.
An optimistic despatch from the front says the Germans are
exhausted after the recent terrific struggle, the superiority of the
British artillery and the pluck of the British infantry telling greatly on the invaders.
An official statement issued last night gives the number of
British killed in the lastest engagements as 18 officers and 62 of
other ranks, 78 officers and 312 of other ranks being wounded,
with 86 officers and 4,670 men missing. The list of missing includes unwounded prisoners, stragglers and others unaccounted for.
The thirtieth list of German losses was published in Berlin last
night, and is said to be appalling. The Mecklenburg troops alone
lost over 20,000. Berlin is draped in black and half the citizens are
in mourning.
In the retirement from Belgium the Ninth Lancers co vered
themselves with glory. A battery of eleven guns was mowing
down the British, when the Lancers turned and charged in the
open to the guns, killing all the gunners and putting the guns out
of action. It was a second "Charge of the Light Brigade." The
Lancers suffered terrible loss.
After one of the great battles of history, 800,000 Russians defeated 600,000 Austrians and took Lemberg. The defeat was
decisive, the Austrians losing 43,000 killed, wounded and prisoners,
with 150 guns.
Spain is said to be ready to help France.
Turkey has taken no action and will probably remain neutral
