This week, says a London correspondent, marks one definite point of progress in the war, and
one wholly encouraging to Britain. The autumn storms, which have now begun, involve the probable
end of the Zeppelin campaigns against England until spring. Weather conditions, from now on,
make such ventures highly dangerous, although not altogether impossible. It was knowledge of the
short time remaining whfch caused the Germans to make attempt after attempt, all futile, during the
past few weeks. While it is not yet possible to publish details of these attempts, their complete
repuise reflects the highest credit upon the recent developments of our anti-aircraft service.
The German attempt at an invasion of England, which was last autumn considered probable, is
now universally regarded as impossible, as our naval superiority is greater than ever.
The failure of Germany's Russian campaign to accomplish its main purpose is now admitted
and must profoundly affect its winter campaign. The entire German strategy was built on the
supposition that Russia would be knocked out by autumn.
In the Champagne, innumerable German attacks upon the new French positions, attacks in
massed formation, preceded by poison gas, are costing them enormous numbers of men and
producing no result.
Every day affords increasing evidence of how Germany is feeling the enormous economic
pressure brought to bear on her. Much of the harvest of Eastern Prussia has sprouted and moulded
owing to the wet autumn.
London, despite the darkened and gloomy nights caused by the lighting regulations, shows
during the daytime scenes of greatest animation. The shops are crowded: there is singularly little
distress and prosperity is general.

Alex. Tilleard, formerly of
Hazelton, is now a lieutenant in

The board of trade is making
an effort to have a number of
soldiers quartered in Hazelton
during the winter.
It is reported that steamer

Athens: In an effort to distract the Bulgarians from southeast   Servia,   where   they   are
acter. The Bulgars were forced
back across it by the deadly
French artillery, which more
than offset the numerical superiority of the enemy. Northeast
of this battlefield, the British,
backed up by French cannon, are
still hammering at the Strumnitza
defenses. The Bulgars are still
holding out stubbornly.
In the southwest, Serb refugees
are streaming across the frontier
into Greece in ever increasing
numbers. The Bulgar invaders
in this district seem to be ignoring the Vardar river battle completely. They are advancing to
the southward through the upper
Tserma valley, completely overwhelming the weak forces of
Serbs who oppose them.
Rome: A telegram to the
Tribuna from Athens says that
the Bulgarians have occupied
Monastir and that the Servians
are in full retreat. There is no
confirmation of the report.
Madrid: A wireless message
has been received from the Verona, a sister steamer to the
Ancona, stating that she was
pursued by a large submarine
with two periscopes, off Sardinia.
The submarine was accompanied
by a steamer. The Verona is

Patriotic Telkwa
Telkwa people are doing their
share in supporting the Patriotic
Fund and the Red Cross. On
Thursday evening a dance was
held at the Telkwa Hotel, which
resulted in the addition of a
handsome sum to the Patriotic
Fund, while those who attended,
including many from all parts of
the Bulkley Valley and some
from Hazelton, spent an enjoyable evening.
On Friday of last week the
Ladies' Club gave a card party
at the residence of Mrs. Ernest
Hoops, and realized a neat sum
for the Red Cross. T. J. Thorp,
who is always energetic in patriotic work, says the committee
will not overlook any pennies.
The sewing party in aid of
Red Cross funds will be held as
usual at the Mission House on
Thursday afternoon, Nov. 25, at
3 o'clock. All the ladies of the
town are asked to come and help.
The Miner is two dollars a year.

The engagement is announced
of Miss Barbara Crawford, who
has been for about two years a
member of the local hospital
staff, to Mr. H. R. Smith, of
North Bulkley.
Theweddingis expected to take
place during the Christmas vacation.

All are invited to attend.
A fund has been opened for
the purpose of sending to Hazelton men at the front and in hospitals and training camps some
evidence of the esteem in which
they are held by the people of
the town.
It is hoped sufficient money
will be subscribed to allow the
despatch to each of the sixty or
more men who have gone from
here of an acceptable Christmas
gift. Voluntary contributions
will be welcomed, and will be
acknowledged in the next issue
of The Miner.
Conservative Meeting
There was a good attendance
at the annual meeting of Hazelton Conservative Association ,
which was held in the school-
house on Monday evening. Reports of officers and executive

That things Imperial can never again be as they were is the
statement made by the London Standard, which declares that the
sons who have responded so nobly to the call must be given due
voice in the councils of the Empire.    Editorially, the Standard says:
We do not know the number of  troops  which  the last-named
Dominion  (Canada)   has provided,   but we may be sure it has not
been behind the rest in patriotic effort. The magnificent specimens!
of  manhood   which  represent the Canadian forces in 'this country
have shown us what the lakeland of the East and  the  prairies of;
the West can provide.    But we have other evidence, apart from the
actual number of troops sent,  as  to  the share  which  Canada  is
taking in the war.     Some details are given in   the  "Standard  of
Empire" today.     At the beginning of the war the Mother-country
was called upon to finance the Dominion for the purpose of equipping its troops.   It is now proposed that  Canada shall  raise   an!
internal loan of ��30,000.000.     Moreover, she has mobilised all her!
resources  for  the manufacture of arms and  munitions  with  a
promptitude and  completeness which is wonderful in a country as
yet barely organized for  industrial   production.      Like  the other
Dominions,   and  with  equal  cause,   she has made the quarrel her
own���the quarrel  not of  the  Mother-country  alone,   but of  the
British  Empire,   the British name, the British olood.     When the
history of the war comes to be written, there will be nothing found I
more  wonderful  on  the  moral  side than the way in which these
distant peoples, remote from the  scene  of action,   and  protected,
from all direct hurt by the impregnable power of the British navy, |
sprang to arms to defend an idea���the idea of justice, freedom and .
good faith���which is implanted in them as part of the  heritage  of
the Empire of which they form a part.     Nothing compelled them
but their  honor.     The Empire laid them under no fee or tribute.
But they were free men, and saw that, if Prussia triumphed,  free-;
dom  would  vanish  from  the earth,   and all  that generations of
struggle  had won would be lost, and lost forever.     The best cure!
for the gloomy doubts which appear to rise so easily in   the  hearts
of some  is  to look  to the Dominions and ask whether the cause
which has so attracted them could possibly know defeat.
There are 70,000 Canadian soldiers on the firing line. The
number is increasing every week.
Tobacco is an essential to these
men with but few exceptions.
To fill the demand 70,000 packets
or more are required each week.
Not one-tenth of this quantity is
being supplied. Each package
costs 25 cents. Jo supply the

The Farmer
I do not want to deal with this
subject more than in a passing
way, but 1 would like to point
out, gentlemen, that after all,
whatever you may do for agriculture, there must still be much
of loneliness and isolation and
tragedy for the man who tills the
soil in a country like this of Canada. No great success, or permanent success, of course, can
be reached without some knowledge of the basic facts which
underlie what one might call the
scientific side of agriculture. The
man who is happy in his task,
can take a keen delight in it, or
make a great success of it. must,
be able to link his efforts with
the great forces of nature that
contribute to the success that he
otherwise could not achieve.
. . . . The farmer, after all,
stands for the necessities. In
the great household of Nature,
the farmer stands at the door of
the bread room, and weighs to
each man his loaf. He has the
final say in this thing. -Hon.

Pressing on Veles
Paris: The Servian legation
here today made public the following official communication:
"Although Veles is not yet in
the hands of the Allied troops,
the Bulgarians are hard pressed
and the fall of the town is imminent. The Bulgarians about
Veles have suffered enormous
losses and have requested an
armistice to bury their dead."
Saloniki : The French and
British troops continue their advance along the whole line. It
is officially announced that the
proportion of wounded to killed
on the Allied side so far in the
Balkan campaign is as ten to one.
Athens: According to authentic information, it is untrue that
Valandovo has been occupied or
even threatened by the Bulgarians. It is reported that this
morning the Servian government
was installed at Mitrovitza.
"The Servian troops are carrying out their retreat in perfect
order and are in no wise discouraged. They have had to
abandon no material, and Bulgar
reports to the contrary are false.
A New York Report
New York: On information
purporting to come from the Russian consulate, the Herald states
that General Joffre is to be given
supreme command of all Allied
forces, on all fronts, and that
Grand Duke Nicholas and Lord
Kitchener will operate respectively from the east and west of the
Russians Aggressive
London: A Reuter despatch
from Petrograd says:
"Japan rendered opportune aid
in the Baltic duel between General Ruzsky and Field-Marshal
von Hindenberg in the matter of
shells, and now that artillery
conditions have been equalized,
the Russians are confident of the
"After long and arduous fighting in the marshes, the Russians
have emerged from the lake
defiles and military authorities
look for a speedy development in
General Ruzsky ' s aggressive
"The Germans, who have been
driven back to within ten miles
of Mitau, are evacuating munition depots."
London : A Zeppelin, badly
damaged by Russian gunfire,
landed at Grodno. The crew
was captured.
What Terms Will Be
London: A semi-official state
mentof the Allies' final intentions
in the war is contained in an
article in the DaiJy Chronicle, by
Hon. G. E. Masterman, which
says Belgium must receive complete independence, with an indemnity to restore her ruined
cities and industries. France
will get Alsace and Lorraine,
indemnity for damage and a new
natural boundary on the Rhine.
Denmark will get Schleswig,
which is purely Danish. German,
Austrian and Russian Poland will
be united under the Czar or a
King appointed by him. Italy
will   get   Trentino  and   Italia
Irredenta. The Turkish empire
will be dismembered. Servia
will be given Bosnia and Herzegovina and an indemnity from
Austria. The German fleet is to
be surrendered, sunk or divided
among the Allies. All Zeppelins
will be destroyed. German colonies are to go to the nations
who conquered them. Thearticle
concludes by saying if Greece
and Roumania consider Greece
Irredenta and Transylvania not
worth fighting for they will
never receive them, as nations
unfiit by cowardice to risk life
for their enslaved brethren are
unfit to rule them.
Gaining Against Bulgars
Athens: The British, French
and Serbs are gaining, foot by
foot, against the Bulgarians in
southern Servia. The Bulgars
are in superior numbers, but a
considerable part of their forces
are in scattered bands, which
have been cut off. Thus, besides
the principal fighting line from
the Strumnitza region northwest
along the Vardar. through Veles
to Tetovo, hot engagements are
raging at several points inside
this front to the southwest.
Against Veles, in the center, the
French troops are directing: a
terrific drive and the town's fall
is believed a queslion of hours.
The artillery fire, with which the
French have cleared the way for
their infantry and cavalry rushes, has inflicted appalling losses
on the Bulgars.
At the northwestern extremity
of the line, the town of Tetovo,
after changing hands repeatedly,
is in the Servians' possession at
latest accounts. With the capture of Tetovo, the Servians took
520 Bulgars and a great quantity
of munitions and supplies.
Kitchener at Lemnos
Milan: Lord Kitchener, accompanied by the resident-general of Egypt, has arrived at
Mudros, on the Isle of Lemnos,
the British base of operations in
the Aegean Sea.
London: Asa result of pressure, the Greek government has
modified its position and agrees,
in the event of a retreat of Servians to Greek soil, not to disarm
them but to permit them to reach
the sea without interference.
Paris: The official Montenegrin
communication today says:
"The enemy on the 13th attacked on the entire front of our
army of the Saniak. He was
repulsed everywhere, except in
the region of Vishegrad, where
we had to retreat to better positions. The Austrians sustained
heavy losses. There have been
artillery combats on the other
Petrograd : Today's official
statement from Russian generai
headquarters reports the capture
during the past month of a few
less than thirty thousand men,
twenty one heavy guns, 118 machine guns and three searchlights.

French Defeat Bulgars
Saloniki : General Sarrail,
commander-in-chief of the French
army in the Balkans, in announcing the result of a thirty-six
hour battle on the Cerna river,
in southern Servia, declares that
30,000 Bulgarians were repulsed
along the whole line with very
severe losses. Not one French
gun was lost. The Austro-German effort to envelop the Servian
armies in the north, it is also
announced, has failed, and the
Servian counter-offensive is proceeding successfully.
Retreat From Babuna
London: A despatch says the
Servians have been corripelled to
retreat from the Babuna Pass,
owing to the danger of their
position being turned. The despatch adds that the Bulgarians
have captured Krushevo and are
now six miles east of Perlepe.
The French were held  on  the
left bank of the Oranya  river,
south of Veles, by a considerable!
Bulgar force and were unable to !
send assistance to the hard-pres-l
sed Servians.
The Bulgarian offensive in the
Tetovo district is on a tremendous
scale,   the   correspondent   says,
and   the   Servians   are   retiring
I southward.
Detachments of British troops
I are   leaving Saloniki constantly
! for Monastir,   where the Serbs
j are preparing a series of strong
defenses.     Should  the  Bulgars
preach Monastir the Serbs will be
: cut off from their lines of supply.
Hindenberg Goes West
Berne:   It is reported here that
j Field-Marshal    von   Hindenberg
has left the eastern for the western front.
London: A despatch to the
Vossisches Zeitung from Buchar-
I est reports that fifteen units of
the Russian Black Sea fleet, including three recently launched
dreadnoughts, have been cruising
for two days off the Bulgarian

To Relieve Monastir
Paris : British troops, well
supplied with artillery, left Saloniki for Monastir on Tuesday,
says a Havas despatch from
Rome: A special despatch to
the Corriere della Sera says:
"After sixteen days of furious
attacks, which were heroically
sustained by the Serbs, the Bulgarians have taken Babuna pass.
The last two Servian regiments
which still resisted were con-
j fronted by fifty thousand Bul-
I garians.
The greatest anxiety and dis-
j tress prevails at Monastir.
Bulgarians Advancing
London: Confirmation has been
received at Saloniki of the report
that the Bulgarians have entered
Prilepa, after a junction with the
Bulgarian army coming from
Tetive, according to an Athens
despatch. The Servians forced
back by the Bulgarian advance
have retreated to Ochrida.
Germans Driven Back
Petrograd: The official communication says: "Below Livonsk
enemy detachments attempted to
cross the Dvina at several points,
in boats, but were repulsed.
West of Dvinsk, in the Lake
Sventon region, the Germans
were driven from some of their
trenches and compelled to fall
back. In the abandoned trenches
we found rifles, stores and a
large quantity of cartridges.
"A Zeppelin flew over Dvinsk
district Monday night and dropped bombs, some of them falling
into the German trenches and
causing heavy losses and a panic
among the Germans."
On the West Front
Paris: The following official
communication was issued by the
French war office last night:
"Around Loos, Angres and
Souchez, the cannonading has
been very violent on both sides.
Against the wood south of Faye,
southwest of Peronne, we concentrated an effective fire.
"In Champagne, in the region
of Navarin farm and nearTahure,
artillery action is still sustained.
"In the Argonne we exploded
two series of mines, which destroyed German trenches for a
considerable extent."
Warships in Cattegat
London: As a sequel to the
report that a flotilla of twenty-
five German torpedo boats and a
large cruiser had passed Helsing-
borg, Sweden, on Wednesday
morning, proceeding into the
Cattegat, a despatch to the Central News from Copenhagen says
that a British squadron of cruisers
and destroyers had been seen
entering the Cattegat.
Monastir May Fall
"According to newspaper advices, the situation of the Servians is extremely dangerous.
It is feared the defense of Monastir is doomed to failure, in
view of the Bulgarian numerical
"The main Servian forces are
today in Old Servia and principally at the Katchinak defile,
where, apart from a small Servian retreat at the outset, a
stubborn resistance is offered and
is still under way.
"The situation of the French
troops is reported favorable, and
it is stated the arrival of strong
reinforcements will make possible
a general French attack, which
may save the situation and compel the Bulgarians to withdraw
troops from other fronts.
"Denys Cochin, minister without portfolio i n the French
cabinet, was received today by
King Constantine. The audience
lasted nearly an hour. He will
leave tomorrow for Saloniki."
Geneva : The Italians are
preparing for a formidable attack on Gorizia, according to the
Milan correspondent of theZurich
Gazette. Five hundred thousand
men are to be employed.
