 THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER OF NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
VOL. IV, NO. 19
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1915
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
HOCKEY GAME TONIGHT
New   Schedule   Arranged   This
Week by Hockey League-
City League Opens
Arrangements have been made
for a game on the local rink tonight between the New Hazelton
and Hazelton second teams, at
eight o'clock sharp.
A meeting of the Northern
Hockey league was held in Hazelton on Thursday, with representatives from Smithers, New
Hazelton and Hazelton being
present. The meeting was called to deal with the games defaulted by Smithers on Dec. 30
and Jan. 5. After hearing the
representations of the Smithers
delegates, it was decided to give
Smithers another opportunity to
play these games, so a new
schedule was drawn up ordering
Smithers to play in New Hazelton on Monday the 11th and in
Hazelton the night following,
with Hazelton going to Smithers
on the 16th. This arrangement
was perfectly satisfactory to the
Smithers delegates and worked
in nicely with their instructions,
but on wiring a report of the
meeting to Smithers, they were
very much surprised to receive a
telegram stating that Smithers
could not send a team down and
would forfeit the games.
Will Hold Ice Carnival
Aa there will be no senior hockey here next week, the Athletic
Executive have arranged to hold
.a carnival on Tuesday night.
Prizes will be offered for the
best lady's costume best gentleman's costume, best sustained
character and best children's
costume. There will be races
and a broomolo game, and refreshments will be served in the
club rooms. Only skaters in
costume will be allowed on the
ice, and a good time for all is
promised by the committee.
Blues vs. Grays.
The City League opened with
a flourish on Thursday night
when the Grays and Blues clashed in a game that was highly
Interesting for players and spectators alike. After three stirring
periods during which it appeared
to be anyone's game, the Grays
came out on top with a 6-4 score.
The Blues however .were without one of their best forwards
and will make the other teams
play good hockey to beat them
again. The teams lined up as
follows:
Grays���Fuller, O'Brien, Reid,
Ware, Glassey, J. Rock.
Blues���McLeod, Welch, Simpson, G. Rock, McDonald, Berts,
Latham.
RUSSIANS SINK A TRANSPORT
TURKEY RECEIVESlTALY'S IlTMATUM
-GREAT RUSSIAN VICTORIES IN GALICIA
Petrograd, Jan. 9 :��� Official
communication���On the left bank
of the Vistula, at the villages of
Soukha, Metairie and Moghely,
fighting has assumed a character
more and more desperate. The
Germans, notwithstanding the
great losses they have sustained,
continue obstinate attacks at different points. In Bukowina we
occupied on Jan. 6th Kimplunog,
near the Hungarian border, after
an advance and fighting lasting
eight days. Our troops during
this fighting covered more than
120 versts (about eighty miles)
and finally crossed the mountain
chain   at  the frontier between
Bukowina and Hungary.
During these operations we
captured more than one thousand
Austrians and also took rich spoils
of war. On the Black Sea on
Jan 3 our torpedo boats [discov-
ered a Turkish cruiser of the
Medjidieh type, followed by a
transport sailing east on the
north coast of Asia Minor. W Seeing themselves pursued, the
Turkish vessels turned west in
flight, but we followed and sank
the transport, the cruiser escaping.
Paris, Jan. 8, official communication:���To the north of Sois-
son, we have captured   German
redoubts, taking two successive
lines of trenches and reaching
the third line. Counter attacks
by the Germans failed.
In Argonne, a violent attack
on the summit of the heights of
Chevauchee was made by the
Germans. We were at first
forced to retire one kilometre
(two thirds mile), but later made
counter attacks and reoccupied
our positions.
London���The Greek government is gravely concerned over
the strained relations between
Greece and Turkey. Greek diplomats in Turkey have been receiving intolerant treatment and
all  protests have  been ignored.
STORY OF THE GREAT WAR TOLD DAY BY DAY
It is the intention of the City
league executive to have a league
game eyery Thursday night.
Hockey teams have been formed at Burns Lake and Francois
Lake.
London, Jan. 4:���Owing to the
general bad weather which prevails, operations are practically at
a standstill in the western theater
of war. The French forces have
gained a little in some places,
but there is nothing new, except
several minor artillery duels.
Berlin reports that British
ships and torpedo boats appeared
off Westende, Belgium", yesterday. The warships retired without firing.
Indications point to the possibility of the Balkan States -which
are now heutrar, taking" part in
the war: The Greek minister of
finance has declared that Greece
is making preparations to maintain the new territories she gained in the Balkan wars from
Turkey and Bulgaria. He stated
that Greece had more to fear
from Bulgaria than from Turkey.
It is believed that Roumania will
not look on calmly while Russia
advances towards Transylvania,
and it is expected she will join
with Russia, with the hope of
securing the much-coveted east-
tern province of Austria-Hungary.
Petrograd, Jan. 4:���The Germans have again been repulsed
with great losses, from th&Bzura
and Rawka rivers, says last
night's announcement by the war
office. An attempted surprise
attack by the enemy failed completely. The German' infantry
charges were, for the first time,
accompanied by a shower of
bombs; but the Russians stood
their ground.
A strong Austro-German force
made an even more stubborn attack on the Russian forces holding the road to Kielce. The
Russian infantry finally charged
the enemy, with the bayonet,
driving ��� them > back alo.ng the
southwest road. Nine guns and
several hundred prisoners were
taken.
It is officially stated that the
Russian army under General Di-
mitroff has captured 22,700 Austrians and 45 machine guns during the last fortnight.
It is estimated by the war
office that 27 German army corps
are operating against Russia.
"Four hundred thousand Germans
and Austrians have already been
taken prisoner, and their killed
and wounded are three or four
times heavier.
The Germans have not only
crossed the Bzura, but the Russians are even on the left bank of
that river. Warsaw is not in
danger, and if the Germans are
compelled to" retreat they will find
it a much more difficult problem
than it was last October.
London, Jan. 5:���Highly significant news comes from the eastern battle front, where the
Russians, after administering a
disastrous defeat to the Austrians
in Galicia, have swarmed through
the passes of the Carpathians and
invaded the plains of Hungary.
Panic is said to have seized Vienna and Buda Pesth, where it is
believed the new incursion of
Russians is not a mere raid, but
real invasion.
Russian despatches state that
the defeat of the Austrian forces
was most severe, and will compromise the strategy of General
von Hindenburg in Poland.
An official despatch relating to
Sunday's operations says: "There
is no important change on the
left bank of the Vistula. In
many sections there have been
the usual artillery engagements
and secondary actions. There
was more desperate action on
Sunday night in the region of
Bolimow, where the Germans,
after an energetic attack, forced
one of our trenches, but were
immediately dislodged by our
counter-attack, abandoning six
machine guns and a large number of prisoners."
The statement tells of the beginning of the battle in Western
Galicia, on Saturday, when the
Russians captured several cannon and machine guns and many
prisoners, including an entire
Austrian battalion, with eleven
officers. Later advices say that
in this region a column of the
enemy, with wounded and all
documents, fell into the hands of
the Russians.
On the western front, the official ��� communication says, the
only reports received have reference to upper Alsace, where engagements of a very violent
nature continued in the region of
Cernay (Senneseim). "Last
night," says the report, "'our
troops lost, then regained, territory around the church at Stein-
bach. This morning they occu
pied the entire village. Ihe German works to the west of Cernay,
captured by us yesterday, were
lost for a brief period, following a
very violent counter-attack, but
the Germans were unable to
maintain it, and this position re
mains in our hands.
Paris says Roumania's entrance
into the war on the side of the
Allies, is certain, the only hindrances being diplomatic and military preparations.
FOR RELIEF OF BELGIANS
Hazelton Woman's Auxiliary Intends to Work in Aid of Distressed War Victims
Petrograd, Jan. 6:���It is officially announced that the Russian
troops have gained a decisive victory over the Turks. The despatch from headquarters in the
Caucasus says: "Last night our
troops won complete victory over
the Turks at Sari Kamysh. We
have beaten two Turkish army
corps, and made the entire 9th
army corps, with its commander
and three division commanders,
prisoners. Small bodies of Turkish troops, which succeeded in
escaping, were rigorously pursued
and destroyed. We continue in
in pursuit of other parts of the
Turkish forces, which are now in
full retreat.
"The Turkish losses in killed
and wounded are enormous. We
took many cannon, machine guns,
munitions of war and revictual-
ling convoys."
London, Jan. 6:���Fuller accounts from Tiflis indicate that
Turkish expedition to Ardahan
has been quite obliterated. Several thousand were captured, including four German senior officers.
AustroHungarian troops in the
Carpathians are famished and
suffering terribly from frostbites.
Many are so exhausted as to
be sent home; others surrendering to the Russians without any
attempt at resistance. Conditions in Hungary are desperate.
In view of reports of the early
entrance of Roumania into the
war, special significance attaches
to the following from the Chronicle's Milan correspondent:
(Continued on  I'age Four)
Members of the Hazelton W,
A. are desirous of assisting in the
relief of distressed Belgians, upon whom the great war has had
such cruel effect. At the first
meeting of the year, to be held
at the Mission House on Thursday afternoon next, the subject
will be fully discussed, in order
that ways and means may decided upon for the best and most
expeditious attainment of the
present object of the organization.
The officers of the W. A. hope
that all ladies will endeavor to be
present at Thursday's meeting.
Athletic Dance
The Athletic Association have
announced that a dance will be
held on Friday the 22nd Jan. It
will be run as a pound dance, and
the committee is hard at work to

Vol. IV.
Saturday. January 9, 1915.
No. 19
A year or bo ago, it was generally believed in this vicinity that
the Herald, published in New Hazelton, was owned, or at least
controlled, by a firm of railway contractors heavily interested in
the New Hazelton townsite. For our concurrence in this belief, we
owe an apology to our contemporary. We are convinced that the
idea was erroneous. The members of the company in question
have, undoubtedly, some claim to the possession of intelligence,
while the columns of the Herald bear indubitable evidence that its
policy is not dictated by any intelligence, corporate or otherwise.
While ostensibly boosting the "New Hazelton" district, our
esteemed contemporary has won its chief renown as a wielder of
the knocker's hammer. Persistently, in season and out of season,
it has belabored with cheap sarcasm, with sneer and innuendo, any
person, town or government which did not fit into the scheme of
things as devised by the Herald.
Latterly the New Hazelton paper has been devoting its attention to the government officials in this district, with numerous
references to the operations of the public works department; but
while its articles are admirable examples of the art of accusation
by inference, it has not once made a definite charge against any
government official, being content, evidently, with efforts to stir
up sentiment against the provincial government and its officials,
without bringing forward any facts which would call for explanation or action on the part of those made objects of its malice.
We are familiar enough with the methods of conducting public
business in this distiict to assert that neither graft, extravagance,
nor undue partisanship can fairly be charged against any of the
departments which have their headquarters in Hazelton. If the
Herald has any grounds for specific complaint against any govern
ment official in this district, we consider it the duty of that paper
to make the facts public, rather than to continue the campaign of
insinuation and innuendo which has earned for our contemporary���
and incidentally for the town which supports it���the unenviable
reputation which is the knocker's only reward.
Where War Started
It ought not to go unrecorded
that the most gigantic war the
civilized world has ever known
began by the simple ringing of
an old church bell. The small
Belgian town of Vise is situated
on the banks of the river Meuse.
It is within three or four miles
of the Dutch frontier, across
which some 700 Vise refugees
hurried to the neighboring town
of Meastritch, and it is eight to
nine miles north of Leige (since
made famous by its defensive
fortifications.)
Vise was invaded by a stream of
motor cars crowded with German
infantry on the day war was declared.
This ruse was adopted in the
hope of obtaining possession of a
valuable passage without firing a
shot; but before an entry to the
town could be made the cure of
the parish alarmed the town
by ringing his church bell, thus
enabling the town guard and inhabitants to delay the enemy and
give the defending troops time
to destroy two important bridges.
Most brutal conduct towards
the townspeople followed. The
burgomaster and chief citizens
as well as the faithful clergymen
were immediately shot. But
they had done their memories
should be held in honor through
the coming years.

An Admirable Map
A publication which should
prove of considerable interest to
the prospective settler has recently been prepared in, and is
now being issued from, the"Railway Land branch of the depart-
of the Interior at Ottawa. This
interesting publication, which is
known as the Peace River and
Northern Alberta Homestead
Map, graphically illustrates by a
comparatively .simple system of
coloring the land situation in
that district, including, as it
does, complete information with
respect to the disposal of lands,
location of timber berths and
forest reserves, nature of the
soil, etc.
An interesting feature of the
map is the fact that it enables
an observer to procure at a
glance a complete grasp of the
present land situation, not only
with regard to those lands which
have been taken up durinar past
years, but also with respect to
lands previously homesteaded
but for which patent has not yet
been issued. It thus enables a
person to trace the progress during comparatively recent years
of settlement in the Peace river
district.
The aim in the preparation of
the map has been to show the
land situation up to September
of last year, and in view of the
rapid exhaustion of free homesteads throughout the older
provinces, the information should
prove of particular interest to
prospective settlers.
In addition to the information"
with respect to lands which have
been homesteaded and otherwise
disposed of, the publication contains complete information regarding railways, general topography of the country, etc.
Copies may bf obtained free
of charge upon application to
F. C. C. Lynch, superintendent
of railway lands, Department of
the Interior, Ottawa.
It Isn't Your Town���It's You

Like the kind of a town you

You needn't slip your clothes in

And start on a long, long hike.
You'll only find what you left
behind,
For    there's    nothing   that's
really new;
It's a knock at yourself when
you knock your town.
It isn't your town���it's you.
Rjal towns are  made of  men
afraid
Lest somebody gets ahead.
When everybody works and nobody shirks
You can raise a  town   from
the dead.
And if while your make you personal stake
Your neighbor can  make one
too.
Your town will be what you want
to see;
It isn't your town���it's YOU.

BrilM. Columbia THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1915
filE MINER WAR BULLETINS
(Continued from Page One)
"The Russians are making
rapid strides in Austria's eastern
provinces, Bukowina, where they
have encountered but faint-hearted resistance."
A well informed Roumanian
correspondent of the Ilsecolo at
Rosenthal says: "The invaders
are sweeping down along Rou-
mania's borderland, where their
patrols, composed of Roumanians
belonging to Russian Bessarabia
are to be found chatting amicably
with the sentries at frontier outposts. The Russians are actually
in possession of Suezawa and
Kimpoling, two cities of historic
memory for Roumanian peoples,
and both within a few mMes of
the Roumanian border. Their
infantry and artillery entered
the former place on Sunday, after it had been occupied by a
mere patrol for a space of twenty-four hours.
Petrograd, Jan, 7:���The Russians have completely wiped out
two Turkish army corps, which
were trapped in the terrible
passes of the Caucasian range,
where, under German officers
they contested the sovereignty of
Russia on Russian soil. The
Ninth Turkish Army Corps, formerly stationed at Erzerum and
considered the pick of the Turkish army, led the invasion, supported by another army corps
drawn apparently from Yuan.
All that now remain of 50,000
Turks are a few hundred prisoners.
Copenhagen, Jan. 7:���A des-
despatch to the Tidende from
Constantinople says the former
German cruiser Goeben, which
flies the Turkish flag, struck two
Russian mines in the Bosphorous
and was seriously damaged. She
has two big holes on her water
line, and it will take two or three
months to repair her. This fact has
been kept secret from the people of
Constantinople.
An official Turkish communication says that two Turkish
cruisers were in action yesterday
in the Black Seu, against a Russian fleet of seventeen units.
Despite the Russian numerical
superiority, the Turkish ships
were not destroyed.
London, Jan. 7:���The correspondent to the Daily Mail in
France, reports that a Zeppelin
skirted the French sea coast near
Gravelines, twelve miles southwest of Dunkirk, on Wednesday
morning, and then turned westward toward England. It is also
rumored that two others preceded it. Throughout the whole
day Dunkirk was menaced by
raids, but owing to the vigorous
fire of the town guns, but few
bombs fell. At one time six
a iroplanes were hovering over
the town, but all were forced to
retreat. Apparently no damage
was done.
It is reported that the Kings
of Bulgaria and Roumania will
hold a conference at an early
date on Roumanian soil.
An American engineer, who
has just returned to Denmark
from Germany, states that the
Kaiser is mentally impaired by
the strain under which he has
been suffering since the war began, and that constant friction
exists between him and the
general staff.
Vancouver, Jan. 7:���Karl von
Mackenzen, a brother of General
von Mackenzen, and Doctor Red-
lich, were arrested Monday afternoon by the local police, follow
ing a raid on the Makenzen
ranch, at Port Kells. They were
suspected of being implicated in
a plot to facilitate the passage of
German reservists from Canada.
After being detained for two
days they were released.
Rome, Jan. 8:���Italy has fixed
a time limit in which Turkey
must apologize formally for the
Hodeida incident, and salute the
Italian flag or suffer consequences. The Italian government
will not be satisfied unless reparations include: the release of the
British consul, who was seized
in the Italian consulate, punishment of violaters of the consulate, and a military salute to the
Italian flag. Turkey has until
Jan. 10 to reply, after which date
Italo-Turkish relations will be of
a very delicate character.
The Greek cruiser Hellehas
arrived at Durazzo, Albania, for
the purpose of protecting the
Greeks there, in case the insurgents should capture the town.
Berlin, via London, Jan. 8:���
German army authorities have issued a general order prohibiting
in future the troops in the field
from fraternizing with forces of
the enemy, as they did in the
western theater of war at Christmas. To such an extent was
this fraternizing carried on, that
at one place where the Germans
and British played football on
Christmas day, they agreed to
suspend hostilities for two days
more.
Berlin:���Preparations are being made for a resumption of the
offensive campaign against Serv-
ia. The Austrian army corps on
the Danube have been reformed
and reinforced.
Paris, Jan. 8:���Official communication: "Reports were received this evening of violent
i rerman attacks in the region of
Lassignay, in Argonne, at the
crossing of the road from Le
Four de Paris to Varennes and
that from La Haute Chevauche,
in the region of Verdun, and on
the ridge which dominates Stein-
bach.
All these attacks have been
repulsed.
There is a remarkable change
in the people of Berlin���in fact,
all Germany ��� according to an
American who has reached London. He says there is a tense,
anxious look on the faces of the
German people, in marked
contrast to the confidence shown
at the beginning of the war,
that one feels the impression is
growing that all is not well, that
reported victories are not all vic-
tjries, and that others have been
secured at immense cost.
Paris, Jan 8:���The war office
today gave out an account of tie
operations in Belgium and Northern France during recent days,
\ covering the period from Dec.
25th to Jan. 6th. The account
says : ��� Notwithstanding the
wretched state of the roads and
the bad weather, three important
actions took place, al) of which
were successful. These included
the occupation of St, Georges,
the development of our gains in
the region of Perthes, and the
taking of Steinbach.
In addition to this, on the
whole of our front, our aggressive activity has not ceased to
manifest itself by gains, which
will be given in detail later.
Cause of Death Unknown
Coroner Hoskins and a jury on
Tuesday heard evidence in the
inquest into the death of Francois Lake John and his wife, two
Indians who died suddenly at
Francois Lake. The testimony
of other Indians, who were present when the victims died, tended to show that death resulted
from drinking wood alcohol, but
the jury considered the evidence
insufficient to justify a verdict to
that effect, and found that the
deceased came to their deaths
from unknown causes.
Poolroom License*
Cheif of Police Minty has received instructions from Victoria
that in future no applications for
pool room licences will be entertained unless the applicant is on
the B. C. voters list, and no license? will be transferred. In
case of a sale of pool room a new
license must be applied for and
granted before opentng for business.
The Rev. C. E. Batzold, of
Smithers, will preach at the
Methodist Church on Snuday
evening, Jan. 10th, at 7:30 p. m.
and the Sacrament of the Lord's
Supper will be administered at
the conclusion of the regular
service.
Otterson in Seattle
We note by a Seattle exchange
that George W. Otterson, the
mining and hyd-aulic engineer,
who is well known here through
his connection with the Kildare
Company, has been called into
consultation with Engineer Dim-
ock regarding sluicing operations
on the Cedar river dam, where
an effort is to be made to close
the pores of the glacial material
through which the water is seeping. The fine earth is to be
washed from the upper level
of the bank along the sides
of the dam.
Card of Thanks
Dr. H. C. Wrinch, medical superintendent of Hazelton Hospital,
requests The Miner to express
his appreciation and thanks to
the ladies and gentlemen who
arranged the successful masquerade dance in aid of the Hospital
funds, and also to those whose
contributions of refreshments
added to the success of the occasion.
India has trained runners who
can cover more than 300 miles a
day.
The Miner is two dollars a year.
