POPOVICH FOUND GUILTY
Murderer   of  Compatriot Convicted at Clinton Assizes-
Good Police Work
A telegram from* Clinton to
Chief Minty states that Mike
Popovich has been convicted at
Clinton assizes of the murder of
Mike Turklja, another Austrian,
near Endako several months ago.
The chief and his men are to be
commended for their work in
this case. Although the crime
was not discovered until three
weeks had elapsed, the police
traced the murderer to Edmonton, secured his arrest, and obtained the evidence on which he
was convicted, all within a eou-
ple of weeks after the finding of
the body. Eleven witnesses were
called.  .
Leasers Doing Well
On the Black Prince, of the
Silver Standard group, Rod Mc-
Crimmon and Ernie Stewart-have
a lease which promises to prove
profitable. They are taking out
nice mineral, and expect to ship
a car of high grade ore about
Christmas. Mr. McCrimmon
was in town yesterday.

On Thursday afternoon, at St.
Peter's Church, Hazelton, Alex.
Olson, a Kispiox rancher, and
Miss Esther Marie Olson, lately
from Seattle, were married by
Rev. John Field.
W. A. Meeting
The sewing party in aid of the
Patriotic Fund will meet at the

past three.   All very welcome.
Braves are Champions
Philadelphia, Oct. 12:���Boston
today won its third straight
victory over the Athletics in the
world's series. Twelve innings,
Boston five, Philadelphia four.
NEW GOLD STRIKE
PROMISES WELL
The discovery of gold quartz
on Sibola creek, south of Morice
river, has attracted considerable
attention to that district during
the last week or two. A trip to
the creek was made by D. A.
and H. A. Harris, of Harris
Bros., who were accompanied by
Colin Munro, Pete Slavin and
McKay Bros. The Harris boys
returned on Thursday, and give
a good account of the new discovery. The leads are of fair
size, and the indications appear
very favorable. Until assays
have been obtained the values of
the samples they brought out
cannot be stated. Snow has already come down on the creek,
so that prospecting has been discontinued for the season.
J. S. Bagg, one of the Skepna
Crossing mining men who are
bringing the promising mines of
that vicinity into the limelight,
was a visitor in Hazelton over
Sunday.       	
H. B. Perks, who has been in
the Omineca river district this
summer, returned on Thursday.
F. VV. Valleau who accompanied
him, remained at Tom Creek,
owing to indisposition.
ENEMY ACKNOWLEDGE ENORMOUS LOSSES
WEEK'S FIGHTING ON BOTH WINGS FAVORS ALLIES
-SUBMARINE SINKS ANOTHER BRITISH CRUISER
London, Oct. 17:���The British cruiser Hawke was sunk in the
North Sea by a German submarine. Only fifty men were saved,
of the crew of four hundred. The Hawke was an old ship, numbered 315 in the navy list. She was a protected cruiser of 7350
tons, launched in 1893. Her speed was 19 knots and she carried
twelve guns.
The Kaiser is reported to have ordered his officers to cut a
path to the French coast, at any cost; but it is not believed the
Germans can succeed unless they receive large reinforcements.
Reports from correspondents state that the severe fighting of the
last few days has resulted strongly in favor of the Allies. The
Allies have possession of Albert and Arras, but these points are
still being bombarded by the enemy.
On the east, the steady hammering of the Allies on the German
left winghas beaten them almost within cannon range of the forts
at Metz, on the German frontier. Fighting on this end of the
battle line is said to have been desperate during the last week.
The French are now in possession of the route from Nancy to Metz,
as far as Dagny, on the Lorraine frontier, and are menacing the
route from Verdun to Metz, endangering the communications of the
Crown Prince's army. The German attempt to envelop Verdun
has been defeated.
The Times correspondent says the Germans have abandoned
their attempt to batter their way to Paris by way of Roye, and are
also slackening off near Rheims and on the heights of Brimont,
where thc Allies have taken several formidable trenches.
The governor of Trieste has ordered the expulsion of all Italians
employed at the dt ckyards, where a fire occurred a day or two
ago. His action has caused a ferment in Rome, where the people
are indignent.
The Hamburg-American liner Graecia, New York to Cadiz, has
been brought into Gibraltar as a prize.
Berlin advices say the German authorities estimate their total
losses in France and Belgium at 300,000, and those on the eastern
frontier at 150,000. It is admitted that the Austrian losses exceed
500,000, and it is believed the combined losses of the Austrian and
German forces to date are approximately 1,350,000.
THE MINER'S TELEGRAPHIC BULLETINS TELL STORY OF GREAT WAR DAY BY DAY
London, Oct. 11:���The total losses to the British forces engaged
at Antwerp were three hundred officers and men. In addition,
two thousand men of the naval brigade, who were brought to reinforce the Belgian garrison, are interned in Holland, having retired
down to Sheldt when the forts were reduced by the German siege
guns. The Belgian army and most of the British forces withdrew
to Ostend.
An unconfirmed report is to the effect that a large force of
Germans is advancing towards Ostend, with the object of taking
the King ancTQue~erfof ~ the Belgians prisoners. The Queen baa
crossed to England.
A report, not so far confirmed, says 20,000 of- the British and
French forces effected an important check against German operations east of Ghent, between Antwerp and Ostend.
An official war office despatch from Paris states that yesterday
serious engagements were fought southeast of Lille; northeast of
Arras, and on the heights of the Meuse, without definite result.
King Charles of Roumania died yesterday. It is rumored in
Bucharest that he did not die a natural death,but was assassinated,
some say poisoned. Petrograd believes that the death of the King
of Roumania will result in throwing that country into the war
against Germany.
London, Oct. 12:���An official despatch from the French war
office at midnight states that the German cavalry who were operating in the district east of Aire on Saturday have retreated to the
region of Armentieres, on the Belgian border. The enemy has
been repulsed between Arras and the Oise. The French have;
made progress on the center. Night attacks by the Germans have
been repulsed without great loss to the Allies. The village of
Apremont, east of St. Mihiel, was taken by the Germans and retaken by the French. Everywhere along the battle front the
Allies maintain their positions.
Having failed in their attempt at Paris, the German objective
is now said to be great Britain, which the enemy expects to attack
by use of naval and air fleets, using Antwerp as a base. It is
their hope to set London on fire by the use of inflammable bombs.
Antwerp will prove of no great use to the Germans, says the
London Times. The attack on the forts and city lasted altogether
for eleven days. Reports indicate that the siege was at times
indescribably sanguinary. The losses are said to be appalling, but
no estimates have as yet been published.
Twenty bombs were dropped into Paris yesterday by German
aeroplanes. Three persons were killed and fifteen wounded. One
bomb dropped on Notre Dame cathedral, but failed to explode.
An Amsterdam despatch says it is expected that Portugal will
enter into war against Germany within a very short time.
Rome has been informed that Germany is rushing reinforcements to the Russian frontier, by train and also by ships from
Baltic ports.
German forts, warships and aeroplanes are proving ineffectual
against the Japanese advance on Tsing Tau.
A total of 600,000 refugees from Belgium have sought sanctuary
in Holland.
Cardinal Ferrata, the papal secretary, is dead in Rome.
London, Oct. 13:���It is estimated that the Germans lost 45,000
killed and wounded in attacking two forts alone at Antwerp.
According to the latest official advices from Paris, the Germans only
occupy the suburbs of the city, twenty-four forts still holding out.
The German aeroplanes over Paris dropped bombs between
crowded railway trains. The missiles failed to explode, Another,
aimed at the giant gasoline tank of a paint factory, also failed to
explode.
No important engagements reported in East Prussia.
Petrograd officially admits the sinking of the Russian cruiser
Pallada, with all on board, by a German submarine on Sunday,
in the Baltic Sea.
Official despatches from the front state that violent attacks
were made by' the enemy at'many places, without success.   The
Allies gained ground at some points, and have lost no positions.
Contradictory reports regarding the advance of the Germans
on Ostend have been received.
London, Oct. 14:���It ia reported that the Germans have
retired from the vicinity of Verdun and are concentrating on their
west wing, facing the Allies' left on a line which extends nearly to
the Channel at Dunkirk.
An official despatch from Paris at midnight stated that the
Allies had resumed the offensive and were making an important
advance against the German center. Berlin admits .hat thc
movement is serious, but says it is being resisted. There is also
heavy fighting on the east of the battle front, in Argonne, when-
the Allies' right is attacking.
Germany has officially notified The Hague that the neutrality
of the Schelt and Holland would not be violated.
The Belgian government has been transferred to France,
temporary quarters being occupied at Havre. King Alberi
remains at the head of his army.
Germany has declared the Kiel canal closed during tin
continuance of the war.
British views on the length of the war are divergent. Sonn
estimate the duration of the conflict at twelve months, while others
say it will last only two months.
It is officially stated that some of the Antwerp forts are still
resisting the German bombardment.
The movement of German troops eastward is said to be for thi
purpose of screening the expected retreat of Von Kluck's forces.
The Germans have occupied the city of Ghent.
Advices from Dusseldorf say the recent raid by British aero
planes resulted in the killing of a number of soldiers and the
wounding of many more, in addition to the wrecking of a Zeppelin.
British military experts say the Germans are preparing for a
fresh offensive movement in France, on a tremendous scale. Their
armies have been largely reinforced, but they are outnumbered by
the Allies. The enemy realizes that it is now or never, and cannot
risk a prolongation of the war.
. The Germans admit a loss in East Prussia of 211,000 killed,
wounded and missing. The Germans and the remnant of the
Austrian army are facing the Russian forces in a great battle on
the Vistula river, southeast of Warsaw, in Russian Poland. The
fight may be decisive.
Capetown advices say Colonel Maritz, a Boer commander, is
heading a small rebellion in South Africa. Martial law has been
proclaimed and General Botha is out to punish all rebels and
traitors.
Ottawa, Oct. 14:���Colonel Hughes is due in England today.   It
is announced that, with the second contingent and reinforcements
Canada will have 100,000 men in the field.

PLACER MINERS IN
FROM MANSON CREEK
London, Oct, 15:���The official statement issued in Paris at
midnight states that the British yesterday pressed back the German
right wing.   Elsewhere the situation is but little changed.
The German advance on the Straits of Dover continues,
according to a message from Dunkirk, which states that the
Kaiser's cavalry and cyclist scouts have been seen within twenty
miles of the coast.
A report that Germans had occupied Ostend is denied by the
admiralty. A large German force is said to be marching towards
Bruges and Ostend. Everything indicates a speedy renewal of
fighting on a large scale.   The Allies have prepared entrenchments.
A German aeroplane yesterday escaped after dropping three
bombs into Nancy.   No damage was done.
Unofficial advices from Lisbon say Portugal has declared war
on Germany. The German.ambassador is preparing to leave for
Madrid and congress will meet on Friday to authorize mobilization.
There are fifty thousand Germans in and near Ghent. There
have peen many engagements in the surrounding towns. In one
skirmish, 600 Germans were killed and four hundred taken

satisfied that the values in their
ground are sufficient to pay well,
and next year hope to begin
work on a large scale. In their
prospecting operations they took
out eighteen ounces of coarse
gold.

No. 7
Since the opening of the war, there has been a good deal of
discussion concerning German investments in British Columbia
mines, and the name of Alvo von Alvensleben, who negotiated a
majority of these investments, and who is known to be a business
representative of the Kaiser, has figured much in the public prints.
Von Alvensleben was a director in the company owning the well-
known Jingle Pot coal mine and other Vancouver Island collieries,
but has been replaced by the appointment of a Vancouver man.
The Alvensleben interests also invested heavily in Groundhog
Mountain coalfields, where Mr. Alvensleben took an option on about
eighty square miles, had the area examined by his engineers, made
heavy payments on them, and it was stated that he had arranged
to have this area purchased outright by German capital. On his
recent visit to Germany he also arranged a deal for the acquisition
of the Copper river coalfield by German capital. This property had
been examined by three engineers, whose reports were favorable.
The declaration o!' war stopped the matter from going further for
the present. The property is owned by the National Finance Co.,
who have spent a good deal of money in its development. The
eoal is the best yet discovered on the coast for the manufacture of
metallurgical coke for iron and steel industries.
Mr. Alvensleben had also acquired interests in metal mining
properties. He was interested in Portland Canal mining and in
Observatory Inlet.
Silver Will Advance
Charles E. Knox, president of
the Montana Tonopah Mining
company, in discussing the financial situation of the United States
in general and the silver-gold
producing  mines   in  particular,
the Bank of England secured by
silver bullion in the vaults of the
banks of Berlin or Paris, what

holders, be the chances of the

"Outside the great market we

value of the notes as such would
be  nil;  but on  the other hand,

the white metal would be worth

would not be sustained as set
forth above.

for the products ofthe farms and J if the coin of these various
factories the condition of the
mines of Tonopah anil like mines
all over the country was sure to
be much improved," he remarked
as he pointed out the statistical
fact that the production of silver
in the world was on an average
165,000,000 ounces per year and
of this amount Mexico contributed at least one-third, leaving the
balance to come from other mines
elsewhere.
"In distributing the remaining
two-thirds," he explained, "it
would probably be safe to say
that two-thirds of the balance of
110,000,000, or 74,000,000, ounces
in round numbers is produced
first by a by-product from copper
properties most of which are at
this moment closed, and secondly from the silver-lead companies,
much of whose lead product is
curtailed for reason that the
present price of lead will not
yield a profit sul!ici_ntly large to
to warrant the operation of many
properties and therefore reduce
the production of silver to that
extent.
"The balance of the 30,000,000
ounces is left for the direct production of the mines like those
of Tonopah. When it is considered  that  paper currency of the
A Reply to Germany
Under the caption "Our Reply
to Germany" the New York
Times published the following
editorial:
"In our declaration of independence we said that 'a decent
respect to the opinions of mankind,' required us to declare the
causes which impelled us to dissolve the political bands that
united us with the Mother Country. To prove the justice of our
cause the declaration said, 'let
facts be submitted to a candid
word.' Germany, through her
men of 'light and leading' has
appealed for the sympathy and
the moral support of the people
of the United States.     We have
warring  powers will not be con- given our answer.    It responds
sidered very prime as payment
of debts and that in consequence
there must be a resumption of
coinage of silver into money and
that the present silver bullion reserves held by the governments
of Europe will not long endure,
the price of the white metal
must necessarily advance. If,
for example, there were held in
the town of Tonopah notes of
to their wish, for they ask our
opinion; it does not respond to
their hope, since we are unable
to give them our sympathy or
accord lo them our moral support.
"The answer has been given
through the innumerable voices
of public opinion. We have told
the Germans that in our judgment Austria was unreasonably
harsh and provocative in her de
mands upon Servia; that we have
profound conviction that their
great emperor was guilty of a
wrong against civilization in
supporting the Austrian demands
and the Austrian course of action; that he was wrong again
in witholding assent from the
peaceful proposals of Sir Edward
Grey in which France, Italy and
Russia joined; that it was a monstrous wrong to send the German
troops across the Belgian frontier
and that inasmuch as Great Britain, France and Russia have
taken up arms in defence of political ideals which have our
approval against autocratic and
militarist theories and designs
which we hold in abhorrence, the
sympathy and moral support we
deny to Germany and Austria
are freely given to the allies.
This is the answer we make to
Germany. It expresses the beliefs and feelings of the whole
American people, save only some
of those whose judgement is subject so the natural influence of
the ties of kindred."
Seek and Ye Shall Find
Most persons whose occupation
does not bring them in contact
with information on the subject
take it for granted that gold is
so scarce that very little is being
produced, and are unaware of
the opportunities to get gold by
actually engaging, directly or by
proxy, in digging it out of the
ground and blasting it out of the
rock.
From the dawn of the historical period we have records of gold
having been produced in a constant stream. When a rich discovery in one part of the world
has been exhausted, another has
been made elsewhere. Old Mother Nature has been quite generous.
Furthermore, of late science
and inventive genius have devised methods and machinery for
extracting gold in profitable
quantities from the earth and
rock, where more primitive
methods of mining could not
pay. The modern placer dredge
and cyanide mill are giving us a
constant, profitable supply from
sources that formerly were barren.
During the last few years these
modern methods have studded
our western domain���sung by poets and romancists as the Golden
West���with gold properties of
tremendous values. These are
known as "low grade" ore properties. In them the ore bodies
are colossal ��� inexhaustible to
the casual observer���but not sufficiently rich for profitable mining by the primitive methods of
pick and pan, but where modern
methods produce a constant and
unvarying stream of great
wealth for the owners.
Five of these properties have
so far paid their owners $94,000,
000, ten have paid $125,000,000,
and many, many later developed
properties are paying proportionately well, and the end is not in
sight.
The Tomboy mine has so far
paid $5,000,000 in dividends,
Homestake $34,000,000, Stratton
$5,000,000, Golden Cycle $3,000,-
000, Tonopah $11,000,000, Alaska Mexican $3,000,000, Daly-

000,000, North Star, $4,000,000,
Goldfield $26,000,000, Portland
$10,000,000, and dozens and dozens of others of recent development have already paid from a
fevv hundred thousands to several millions. All these have every indication to continue indefinitely on this scale of production.

Investment Opportunities
Good gold properties are rare,
but they exist. Investment opportunities in goodrgold properties are rarer still, but they exist. Thousands of gold properties are being developed throughout the West today. Many of
them may not amount to much,
if anything. But some of them
���will become the great profitable
producing properties of tomorrow
Today mines are made, not found.
Until the development work of
opening shafts and tunnels in the
property to such an extent that
the ore bodies may be assayed
and measured it is impossible to
form a safe estimate of the value
of the property. Until the development work has reached that
point the property is only a prospect, and anyone investing in it
takes a gambler's chance.���Ex.

west of Warsaw, in Russian Poland. The enemy suffered enormous loss in killed and wounded. Thousands of prisoners were
c iptured by the Russians, who also took guns and quantities of war
material.
The Russians have also won a victory south of Przemysl, where

has been made. Gains have been made on the heights of Meuse,

It is stated the Germans lost fifteen thousand in recent

A Miner representative visited
Skeena Crossing the other day,
and was much taken with the
new hotel, the Copper Tavern,
which is good evidence of the
faith in the future of the new
mining camp which animates
B. R. Jones and  his associates.
m
The hotel is now open to the
public, and those who have seen
it are enthusiastic in praise of
the "Tavern." ���  '
The ground plan of the building embraces an office and lobby,
bar-room, dining-room, sleeping
rooms, kitchen and pantry, store
room and lavatory.
The office and lobby is a commodious room in which a big,
open lire-place is the especially
attractive feature, and is fully
equipped with the best of leather
upholstered furniture, and the
large bar-room with its handsome
mahogany bar gives promise of
good cheer during the long winter evenings. The big, double
windows in the dining-room afford a fine view of the nearby
mountains and make it one of
the most cheerful and attractive
rooms in the house, and the
kitchen is up to date in all its
appointments. The sleeping
rooms, lavatory and store rooms
occupy the remaining space on
the ground floor. The second
stoiy consists of sleeping rooms,
single and en suite, parlors, and
a bathroom with every modern
convenience and requirement.
The rooms are all large and
handsomely furnished, leaving
nothing to be desired in the
matter of comfort.
The hotel is particularly fortunate in having an abundant
supply of the purest water which
is piped from a big spring about
five hundred yards distant, and
which has sufficient elevation to
yive about one hundred feet
pressure, thus affording ample
fire protection.
This handsome hostelry is under the management of M. R.
Jamieson, an experienced and
popular hotel man who is well
known to all prospectors and
mining men on the coast, from
Vancouver to Dawson, as well as
to the traveling public in general.
Chef Thos. Black, who presides
over the culinary department, is
a master of his profession and
has ruled the kitchens of several
of the important hotels of the
Harvey system of the Atchison,
Topeka and Santa Fe Railway.
ln the construction and furnishing of the Copper Tavern no
expense has been spared to make
it the most comfortable and
cheerful stopping place on the
line of the G. T. P. railway between Prince Rupert and Winnipeg, and its patrons will be hard
to please if they are not more
than satisfied with the hospitality
dispensed under its roof.

aware that the management have
given out any information as to
