Miss Margaret Crawford, of
the Hospital nursing staff, is recovering from appendicitis, for
which Dr. Wrinch operated suc-
sessfully.
The Harris residence, near the
Hospital, was endangered by a
fire which caught in the roof on
Tuesday. With the assistance
of members of the hospital staff
the blaze was extinguished before much damage had been done.
A fire alarm was sounded on
Wednesday morning. Some
April Fool jokerhad placed coal-oil
tins, filled with shavings, on the
roof of C. A. Sandberg's cabin
and set fire to them. The resulting blaze caused the alarm. No
damage was done.
F. M. O'Brien, who is now
identified with the B. R. Jones
Co., was up from Skeena Crossing on Thursday. He is enthusiastic in speaking of the prospects
of the mineral district tributary
to the Crossing, and believes the
development of the Rocher de
Boule mines will bring prosperity
to the embryo town.
F. C. Fuller, of the Royal Standard Investment Co., returned on
Monday from Manson creek,
where his company has large hydraulic holdings. It is understood a crew of miners will be

Indian Agent R. E. Loring returned a few days ago from Gitwangak and Cedarvale. At the
latter point, he says, he saw
robins, bees, and butterflies on
March 19. Cedarvale ranchers
are looking forward to another
prosperous season. J. W. Graham
and others have planted large
numbers of fruit trees. A. S.
Gray, the "Potato King" of the
Skeena, is preparing to test various cereal crops.
Shooting Affray
At Francois Lake
As a result of a dispute between J. F. Hall and William
Behnke, two ranchers of North
Francois lake, the former is in
custody, charged with shooting
and wounding Behnke. It appears that the men had a quarrel,
following which Behnke proceeded to remove his belongings from
Hall's cabin, in which he was
living. Hall, after threatening
his erstwhile comrade, fired at.
him as he was leaving the premises, wounding him in the leg
The prisoner will receive his preliminary trial before L. Forde,
J. P., at North Francois. Constable Fairbairn went up on to
day's train, with Hall.
Prisoner Escapes
Thomas Pekel, who was in custody on a charge of house-breaking, escaped from the lock-up on
Thursday morning. The jailer-
had unlocked Pekel's cell and
proceeded along the row, when
the prisoner quietly slipped
through the corridor door, which
he bolted on the outside. He
seized a rifle and got away. The
police hope to recapture the fugitive before he gets out of the
district.
Bert Schooling expects to leave
tomorrow for a vacation trip to
the coast cities.
Among the week's visitors to
Hazelton were J. Crossitt and S.
Watts, of Tassoo Harbor.
MAY REDUCE TARIFF
ON FARM MACHINERY
Ottawa, April I:���It is expected that the budget announcements of the Hon. W. T. White,
minister of finance, will be made
on Monday afternoon next. Undoubtedly the most interesting
feature of the budget speech
will be that portion which deals
with the tariff, for there is already considerable speculation as
to the probable changes which
will be outlined. The fiscal proposals which will be contained in
the budget are, for obvious reasons, kept a close secret, until
the minister himself announces
them. Speculation only is therefore possible as to what the budget will contain in this  respect,
The impression is growing that
there will be a reduction in the
duties on agricultural implements
and the measure of this reduction
is estimated at various figures.
At present the average duty enjoyed by the industry is seventeen and a half per cent. It is
considered probable that the government will reduce the duty
to twelve and a half, or even ten
per cent.
A galaxy of Liberal spellbinders will appear in Hazelton on
Tuesday evening next, when a
public meeting is to be addressed
by H. C. Brewster, former member for Alberni, who is the leader
of the party in this province; by
"Honest John" Oliver, the former leader, and by T. D. Pattullo,
ex-mayor of PrinceRupert. The
trio is on a pilgrimage through
the district.
BRITISH PREMIER TO TEST
E RULE
Asquith Takes Step Which Necessitates Appeal to His
Constituents���By-Election to be Held within Two Weeks
���Officers Insist on Resigning
London, Mar. 30:���A series of
sensations in the House of Commons this afternoon in connection
with the army crisis reached its
climax with the announcement
by Premier Asquith that he himself would assume the portfolio
of secretary of war vacated by
Colonel Seely today. He added
that, as provided by the law, he
would retire from the House of
Commons until his constituents
in East Fife re-elected him.
The Premier's absence from
Parliament will not last longer
than two weeks. His election
for the Scottish division he has
represented ever since he entered
Parliament is regarded as a foregone conclusion. The decision of
the Premier was wholly unexpected. It momentarily overshadows the retirement of Colonel Seely, Field-Marshal French
and Adjutant - General Ewart.
Politicians, however, were
brought back to the original
cause of the ministerial crisis by
the admissions of Viscount Mor-
ley in the House of Lords, which
confirmed many of the Unionist
charges and gave the imforma-
tion that Viscount Morley himself intended to retire from
politics.
"Colonel Seely's resignation
has been accepted," was the expression employed by Premier
Asquith in announcing in the
House of Commons today, that
his war secretary had paid the
penalty of his indiscretion in adding to the cabinet document the
two paragraphs which have
aroused such feeling as to threaten the existence of the entire
cabinet.
Mr. Asquith made his promis
ed statement on the army crisis.
The Premier said:
"After full consideration Field
Marshal French and Adjutant-
General Ewart have persisted in
their desire to be relieved of
their offices. In the public interest, I deeply deplore the decision of these gallant officers,
and I cannot speak too warmly
or gratefully of their ability,
loyalty and devotion with which
they have served the state and
the army, and will, I hope, continue to serve."
The Premier proceeded to tell
the House that Colonel Seely had
informed him, to his great regret, that he was bound to take
course and resign from the secretaryship for war. Mr. Asquith
then sprang his sensation on the
House.   He said:
"In the circumstances and aft*
er much consideration, I have
felt it my duty to assume the
office of secretary of state for
war, although I have taken the
step with the greatest reluctance
in what I believe to be a great
public emergency."
Premier Asquith added that
Sir John French and Sir John
Ewart had asked him to say they
were in entire accord with the
statement he had made to the
House of Commons on Friday.
In announcing that King
George had signified his approval
of his assumption of the war
portfolio, Mr. Asquith concluded:
"1 have taken the law to the
highest legal authorities to obtain
their opinion, and all the lawyers
are agreed that I must resign
from the House of Commons. I,
therefor, in accordance with the
law, retire from the House until
my constituents shall have given
their approval to my acceptance
of this office."

Athletic Association
Dance on 13th
The committee in charge of arrangements for the Athletic Association basket social and dance
on April 13 has outlined an attractive program. The dance
will start about 8 p.m., the concert numbers being interspersed
between the dances. The sale
of baskets will begin at 11:30,
and dancing will continue after
supper. No admission will be
charged, everything being free
except the baskets. These will
be sold without any effort to disguise them, so those who wish
to get the inside track should be
prepared to identify the baskets
they desire to buy. Invitations
have been sent to the ladies of
the district, but, aside from these,
the dance is in no sense an invitation affair, all residents of Hazelton and district being welcome.
St. Peter's Church
Services will be held at 11a.m.
and 7:30 p.m. on Good Friday.
The evening service is arranged
especially for the children. Lantern slides, illustrating the Story

NEWS FROM UNCHA
LAKEJETTLEMENT
Around Uncha lake, which lies
between Francois and Ootsa
lakes, there has recently grown
up an important settlement, peopled by progressive citizens who
aredeterminedtomakeitoneofthe
garden spots of the province.
Recently a branch of the Overseas Club was formed in the
settlement, its first entertainment being a smoking concert,
held on St. Patrick's Day at the
Rogers ranch. An enjoyable
programme of songs and stories
was concluded by the Canadian
and British national songs.

Trainloads of Wounded Mexicans Arrive From Battlefield of Torreon
Chihuahua, Mexico, Mar. 30:���
Evidence of the severe fighting
from which the rebels suffered
at the hands of the Federals outside of Torreon, was brought
here with the first trainloads of
rebel wounded. Sixteen coaches
filled with soldiers distressed
with the ag-)ny of their wounds,
wrapped in blankets and bent in
all shapes, reached the city as the
vanguard of a long line of wounded, scattered along the railroad,
300 miles outward.
Among the wounded three
lieutenant-colonels and twenty
minor officers had arrived by
night. They reported a total of
1,000 wounded on both sides,
with an unknown number of
dead. General Trinidad Rodri-
gruez, probably fatally wounded,
and General Maximo Garcia,
seriously wounded, were left at
the front.
All accounts given by the men
were that the Federals surprised
General Villa, who, instead of
frightening the Huerta forces on
his approach, found the Torreon
garrison entrenched and prepared
to stubbornly resist. These accounts show that the first fighting resulted in a victory for the
Federals and loss of courage
among the rebels. After five
days' fighting, Villa had failed
not only to enter Torreon proper,
but had not taken Gomez Palacio,
a suburb.

STYLE
H matter not generally
known or fully appreciated with regard to commercial printing is the fad that
style, display (by which is
meant typographical arrangement) and type-faces are subject to change, as in the case
of clothing and other fashions.
���J Modern printing shows a
marked tendency towards the
neat and plain in display with a
liberal use of margin, as opposed to the old-slyle methods of
coarse, overcrowded and over-
ornamental composition. Not
every printer can give you the
better class of work. It is,
therefore, to your interest to see
that your printing is done at
the most fully equipped commercial printing plant in the
Northern Interior, carrying a
large and high-grade Stock of
stationery, and employing workmen of experience and ability.
