THE WEEK'S
HAPPENINGS |
AT TELKWA1
(Special  to The Miner) h
On Monday night W. Gale came
to town on a speeder to spread
the alarm that the Hubert bridge
had been carried out and that;
much ice was moving in the river.
There was great excitement in
Telkwa and everybody living in
the lower end of tho town spent
the night at the Hotel. On Wednesday morning the expected
flood took place. For hours the
people had been watching the
great .-pectacle on the river, with
its great masses of ice in an unbroken procession. Then at 5
p.m. Wednesday the jam occurred and the town was soon under
water. At the lower end there
were several feet of water and
about one foot on the sidewalks
in Main street. Explosives were
used on the ice lo clear the channel and the situation was relieved.
When the word came down that
the Hubert bridge was coming
down the river, a gang of men
went out to dismantle it, so that
it would not carry away other
bridges. They succeeded in taking off the upper works and the
platform passed through thechan-
nel at Telkwa, much to the relief
of the townspeople.
The gang working on the new
bridge has been held up, owing
Lo shortage of lumber.
Scotty McRae drove down to
New Hazellon on Thursday.
Messrs. Allen, of Kelly, Douglas, Clements, of Johnson Bros.,
and Jacobs, of Great West Jewelry, are stranded in town.

Vancouver, April 27:���At a
meeting of the Great War Veterans' Association on Thursday
night a resolution was adopted
to force the dismissal of P. Lor-
enzen. of Prince Rupert, an alien
born in the German province of
Schleswig-Holstein   and   former i
president of the German Club at j    Harold Grey returned on Mon-
Prince Rupert,  now  holding a'day from a short visit to Prince
government position in that city. Rupert.
The association would furnish a
man for the position.

Creek, came up this week.

RETURNED VETERAN

Emil Gallon left, this week for
the const, where he will join up
for overseas service.
Mr. and  .Mrs.   E.   Brickenden
came up from  the ranch  for a
dav or two this week.
It is a delight to find that the
people of this town are going
right after old Mr. High Cost of
Living, using increased production as a weapon. From a tour
made around town during the
week we observed that there
was hardly a plot of spare ground
that was not under preparation
for cultivation. This is the right
spirit, and could every community like ours in Canada find it
possible t o utilize i t s vacant
lots and spare spaces of ground
for the same purpose, that above-
mentioned flighty old gentleman,
whose name is subject to more
abuse than any other in the world
today, would soon pack up his
grip and depart for virgin pastures.
A social in aid of the Red
Cross will be given in. St. Andrew's Hall on Tuesday evening-
next, April 30, at 8:30. A large
and varied program has been arranged by the committee in
charge, and will include a demonstration on the manufacture of
trench candles, a hat-trimming
competition for men, a spelling
bee, and weight-guessing contests. A musical program has
also been made up, artistes including J. J. Mclnnes, who will
render one of his famous recitations, and Rev. R. C. Scott, who
will sing.
Scotty McRae, of Telkwa, was
a visitor in Hazelton during the
week.
Rirriscn-Wilson
A pretl.v wedding was solemnized in the Methodist Church,
Prince Rupert, on Hie afternoon

smart suit of navy blue, with a
large crepe de chine hat, the
bride carried a beautiful bouquet
of pink and while carnations and
and bridal roses. Miss Tallander
attended the bride, and Mr. A.
C. Garde supported the groom.
Mr. Young, of Vanarsdol. gave
the bride away,and the ceremony
was performed hy Rev. VV. W.
Wright.
The bridal party left the church
to the strains of Mendelssohn's
Wedding March, and the wedding supper was served later at
the Savoy Hotel.
Mr. and Mrs. Harrison will
leave shortly for their home in
Anyox and will take with them
the hearty good wishes of their

The cost of Ford Service is as remarkably low as the cost
of the car itself. Nineteen of the most called for parts cost
only $5.40. Just compare this with the cost of spare parts
for other cars and you will realize the advantage of owning
a Ford.

In New Hazelton
Town Site
Case
The Supreme Court of Canada
handed down decision today in
the now famous case of Barron
vs. Kelly and others,in which the
sale of lots in the townsite of
New Hazelton was in question.
By this decision Barron has been
declared the victor in litigation
which has extended over about
two years. J. S. Barron, the
plaintiff, was formerly a jeweler
in Dawson, where he was known
as "the baron." In 1912 conditions in the northern city were
not good and Barron decided to
migrate. He bought some lots
in New Hazelton.
Action was later brought by
him to set aside the agreements
for sale on the grounds that he
had been deceived by the misrepresentations made to him at the
time he purchased the property.
The defendants counter-claimed
for the balance due on the agreements. Mr. Justice Clement
tried the case on Sept. 12, 1916,
and dismissed the action and
gave judgment for the counterclaim. The court at that time
held that there had been no deceit and no fraud and that Barron would have purchased the
property irrespective of any representations made to him by the
defendants.
The case was taken to the Court
of Appeal of British Columbia,
which affirmed the judgment of
the trial judge. During the
course of the litigation, the
plaintiff died and the case was
continued by his wife as administratrix. It was then taken to
the Supreme Court of Canada by
Mr.   J.   B.   Barron,   son   nf  the
who argued in favor of dismissal
of the counter-claim and a verdict on behalf of his mother. In
both he has been successful. The
amount sued for was $4800 and
the counter - claim was for
$1813.60.
Mr. R L. Reid, K.C., and Mr.
J. G. Gibson appeared for Barron
in the original trial, Mr. W. B.
A. Ritchie, K.C. (now deceased)
was for plaintiff in the Court of
appeal of British Columbia, and
Mr. S. S. Taylor, K.C, and Mr.
G. Hancox for the defendants.

TO RELIEVE TAX
ON MINING IN
THIS PROVINCE
It is understood that a considerable measure of relief for the
mining companies with respect
to the ten per cent tax on gross
profits and the 2 per cent royalty
tax will be afforded.
Following the legislation of the
1917 session, the mining companies, who are the chief objectors
to the industrial and income taxation program of the new administration, were assessed not
only on the basis of the two per
icent royalty tax, which has been
in existence for some years, but
also for the 10 per cent on gross
profits.    A large number of them
allowance's, particularly that for
depreciation, will virtually convert the ten per cent profit tax
into a net profit tax instead of
one on gross profits, and in this
way will not work a hardship on
the industry. Exhaustion of the
mine, interest on capital borrowed outside the province, federal
war taxation and capital spent on
development will not be allowed
as exemptions at the present
time, although the representatives of the companies have been
pressing to have them included
in the list.

20 to 26 miles to a gallon of
gasoline is a frequent occurrence with the Ford car. One
man (name on request) reports
an average of 33 miles per gallon for 20,000 miles. Surely
this is a record that few, if
any oilier makes of cars, ever
equalled.
It demonstrates the economy
of owning and driving a Ford.
You can  average  1000  miles
more travel on Ford-size tires.
The saving on oil and repairs is proportionately large.   The
name   "Ford"  stands for lowest cost arid greatest service.
