VOL. Ill, NO. 21
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY 24, 1914
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
OF HON
British Columbia May Take in
Big Territory, if Premier Mc-
Bride's Plans Are Carried Out
���Railway Plans.
Victoria, Jan. 23:���A proposal
to annex Yukon Territory to
British Columbia was seriously
discussed at a number of informal conferences recently held by
Hon. R. L. Borden, Sir Richard
McBride, and Alfred Ihompson,
M. P. for Yukon. If any agreement or arrangement was arrived at, however it has not
yet been made public; but it
is expected by those having
knowledge of the situation that
the matter will come up in connection with the question of better terms. It is stated that
Premier McBride views the annexation of Yukon as a desirable
move, in the hope that it will
facilitate the extension of the
Canadian railway system to meet
the new American railway to be
built acros Alaska.
Killed in Fall of Building
Ottawa, Jan. 22:���Four workmen were killed and several injured by the collapse of a pavilion under construction at the
exhibition grounds, where the
Ottawa winter fair is being held.
The accident was caused by the
explosion of the heating plant.
Skeena's Member Sees
Splendid Prospects
Victoria, Jan. 22:���Wm. Man-
son, M. L. A. for Skeena district,
in a lengthy interview today, declares that there is a bright outlook for the whole province, and
particularly for the north, where
mining is active and settlers are
pouring in. Ke predicts that the
fishing industry of the North
Pacific coast will grow to be enormous. Referring to the approaching completion of the G. T. P.,
Mr. Manson states that he does
not anticipate any- depression as
a result of the cessation of the
construction.
Canadian Credit Good
London, Jan. 23: ��� Eastern
Canadian securities are going
well in London, justifying the
hope that the P. G. E. loan of a
million and a half pounds will be
well subscribed.
Helped Prisoner Escape
Winnipeg, Jan. 23:���Constable
Reid confessed to the commission
of inquiry that he aided in the
escape of the murderer Kraf-
chenko. He implicated Percy
Hagel, counsel for the prisoner.
The latter was arrested. Kraf-
chenko was recently recaptured.

Mutiny of Convicts
Oklahoma, Jan. 21: ��� Seven
lives were lost last night in a

ary.
Clark and Davis Must Hang
Vancouver, Jan. 22:���The court
of appeal has refused a new trial
to Clark and Davis, condemned
to hang on March sixth for the
murder of Archibald, the Vancouver constable.
County Court in Hazelton
The first of the regular monthly sittings of county court in
Hazelton opened on Thursday,
before His Honor Judge Young,
W. E. Fisher, of Prince Rupert,
appearing as Crown prosecutor.
Wm. Johnson, an Indian, was
charged with escaping from
custody, and was sentenced to
thirty days hard labor.
"Cy" North is Back
C B. North, thc mining engineer, has returned to Hazelton,
where he will be engaged in mining business for some weeks at
least. The popular "Cy" was
an important factor on the
championship hockey and baseball teams of last season, and his
return in time to take part in
some games of the present series
will strengthen the hockey team.
May Reduce Sentences
Oltawa, Jan, 23:-The sentences passed on the miners convicted of rioting at Nanaimo,
Ladysmith, and Extension are
likely to be reduced by the minister of justice as soon as all are
tried. The object of the trials,
it is declared, is the vindication
of "the law, and it is considered
that conviction and sentence will
suffice.
Joseph B. Thompson, of Smithers, died on Monday morning at
Hazelton Hospital, of gall stones.
He had been seriously ill for some
time, and had been removed to
the hospital a few days previous
to his death.
Joe Thompson was of English
birth and came to the Bulkley
Valley in 1906, taking up land
near Aldermere. His hearty and
genial disposition made him a
general favorite, and his untimely death will be regretted by a
host of friends. He was an Oddfellow and an Eagle. He leaves
a widow, who was with him in
his last illness, and a daughter,
who is attending school in Seattle.
The funeral was held in Hazelton on Thursday afternoon, the
Oddfellows of the town furnishing pallbearers.
END OF REMARKABLE CAREER
Brilliant Career of Empire-Builder Who Began Life in Humble
Capacity and Ended as One of Most Powerful Figures in
Nation���Possessor of Great Wealth���Was 94 Years of Age.
London, Jan. 21:��� Lord Strathcona, high commissioner for Canada, died this morning. Four days ago his physicians announced
that he was suffering from great prostration with threatening
heart failure, following on a short catarrhal illness. He gradually
grew weaker, and quietly passed1 away at two a. m. He was in
his ninety-fourth year.
The daily press today contains many eulogistic articles, while
tributes of esteem have been cabled by many notables, including
Hon. R. L. Borden, Sir Wilfred Laurier, and Sir Charles Tupper.
Three-quarters of a century ago Donald Alexander Smith, a
lad of humble origin, came from his Scottish birthplace to Canada,
to enter the employ of the Hudson's Bay Company. He became
one of the world's outstanding figures in business and in politics;
head of the great Company of which he was once the most obscure
employee; a builder of gigantic railways, and the chosen representative of his adopted country in the capital of the Empire. The
story of his rise is one of those modern fairy tales which make
the fancies of ancient romancers sound tame. He accumulated
immense wealth, and many honors were conferred upon him in
recognition of his public services and benefactions.
Lord Strathcona had many claims to fame and to the gratitude of his countrymen, chief among them being the part he played in the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the successful
launching of the first Canadian transcontinental road having been
mainly due to his foresight, ability and determination.
Ever a believer in Canada, he was untiring in advancing the
interests of the Dominion, and his great wealth and influence were
always freely used to benefit the land of his ndoption and the
Empire as a whole. One of his most striking acts was the organization, during the Boer war, of Strathcona's Horse, a regiment of
Canadian mounted infantry, which he equipped and maintained at
his own expense. His last gift, it is reported, was a donation of
$250,000 for the Shackleton expedition which is to explore the
South Polar regions.

The Monetary Times, one of the most authoritative financial
journals in Canada, has this to say in its annual review:
There must be growth in Canada in 1914. The outlook
for immigration is good. Canada needs men on the land and
the men need their families and homes there. All this means
new population, through immigration, by several hundred
thousand, fhey will help to increase crop acreage. They will
throw more agricultural produce into the world's markets���
and the more of that the better for Canada. They will need
furniture, food, clothing, the necessaries, which others who
help make the nation will supply. Existing towns will be extended and new ones created. These communities will need
water, light, sanitary facilities, fire protection and the many
things which they have been accustomed to in old lands and
which it is imperative for the new land to supply. In return,
the demand will come for pipe and plant, and factories will
continue busy. Every thousand new arrivals in Canada accelerates the national machinery.

As for money, investors will become less timid. They
will have no hesitation in subscribing to the many legitimate
loans which must be sought during the next few months by
reputable Canadian borrowers. Add to this appealing bill of
fare, the after-dinner vinegat���contraction in trade in all
countries and tight money. Even then, Canada has every

The Naval Game
Admiral Mahan's declaration
that, in its present strength, the
British navy is too weak for its
work of defending the whole
Empire, has brought a remarkable echo from M. George Clemen-
ceau who, on national issues,
speaks for Frp.ce. This ex-premier, who makes cv.d unmakes
French ministries, says, in the
Paris Homme Libre, that any reduction in British armaments at
the present moment of supreme
danger, would be the final preparation for the defeat of the
British people. M. Clemenceau,
who has proven his competence
as premier in dealing with the
war threat of Germany over the
Casablanca incident in 1908, says:
''Germany is playing a masterly game. Her bluff in the matter of evacuation of the Aegean
Islands and Epirus has succeeded.
She has completed the discomfiture of Britain, France and Russia
by seizing Constantinople without
firing a shot, has placed a garrison there, protecting the Dardanelles and Russia and Britain
have not yet recovered from their
surprise."
Count Albert Demun, a French
deputy, and a brilliant member
of academy also supports Admiral
Mahan's thesis. He declares
that Germany menaces the balance of power of Europe and consequently, the peace of the world.
The Pall Mall Gazette, following
Admiral Mahan's lead says the
Crucial question is:
"Are the maintenance of Imperial communications and our
national work in Egypt and elsewhere to be included in the part
the British Empire is to play in
the world? Will a readiness to
leave the rest of the Empire go
hang, in the face of the new menace in the Mediterranean and
elsewhere conduce to foster Imperial unity?"
"Other commentators on Admiral Mahan recall Sir Edward
Grey's declaration:
"If we alone among the great
powers gave up competition and
sank into inferiority, what good
could we do? None whatever.
We would cease to count for anything, we should be fortunate if
|our liberty was left us."

London, Jan. 12:- Official figures show that the Cat and Mouse

has been restored, has broken up

It says that only forty-six militants have been arrested in the
nine months since the enactment
of the law, while 240 were sent
to jail previously. Only two are
now in prison. Six completed
their sentences or paid the alternate fine. Two were discharged
on giving a pledge to behave.
Thirty-seven tied the country
