HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1917
VPRICE $2.00 A YEAH
BIGGEST FLOOD
IN TWO DECADES
Bridges Carried Out and Considerable Damage Caused by
Swollen Skeena
The most disastrous flood in
the history of the north has taken
place during the last few days
along the Skeena and Kispiox
livers. Three government wagon road bridges that have been
in use for years were carried
away by the greatly swollen
rivers, the largest bridge of
which was across the Skeena
about two miles above Hazelton.
The other two were spans over
the Kispiox river, one at the
the mouth, near the Indian village, and the other at Mile 17,
on the Kispiox Valley road.
Below Hazelton the damage was
entirely to the loss of the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway, various
bridge and track washouts and
slides taking place.of which there
is very little detailed information
obtainable, on account of interruption gf all traffic and telegraphic communication. Railway
officials are unable to say when
repairs wili, be completed, but it
is agreed that at least two weeks
will elapse before trains will run
between Hazelton' 'cSTA Prince
Rupert.
East of Hazelton, along the
Bulkley river, the damage has
been slight to both road bridges
the railway.
The most serious condition
arising locally is the complete
isolation of the inhabitants of the
Kispiox Valley, who will have to
suffer many inconveniences until
the government bridges are replaced.
Warm rains after heavy early
snow in the mountains are undoubtedly the cause of the floods.
The weather is now cooler, the
snow has disappeared, and the
water is falling as rapidly as it
rose.
An official report of the mutiny
of the 10,000 Russian troops in
France, published by the provisional government.says that soon
after the Russian revolution broke
out,in Paris there appeared newspapers of the most extreme views,
which reached the.Russians and
began a frantic Maximalist campaign. Artillery was turned on
them before their surrender was
effected.
Washington: All alien enemies
are required to register and obtain permits for travel. They
are prohibited from approaching
within a hundred yards of water
fronts, docks, railroad terminals
or storage houses and are forbidden to enter or reside in the
district of Columbia.
Serious rioting took place last
Sunday in Berlin, according to a
despatch from Amsterdam.

FERRY SCOW WENT
DOWN RIVER YESTERDAY
far as the commons is concerned
his defence seemed highly successful; the prime minister's admirers call it a triumph.
The attack was focused on two
points���the character of the war
council which the premier announced in Paris and the condemnation of the Allies' past strategy
which he pronounced in his Paris
speech.
Ex-premier Asquith was spokesman for the opposition. His
speech was not in the tone of an
attack, but a sharp criticism of
the new $lan for Allied control
of the war and a vindication
of his own government,for which
he remarked that he himself and
the presen.t premier had each had
his particular share of responsibility. It was keyed in a much
milder strain than the first hostile
outburst from the newspapers
and sections of the Liberal and
Conservative parties, which greeted the premier on his return
home.
The Daily Chronicle congratu-
vice of the Methodist Church has
been withdrawn, all are cordially
invited to attend the combined
service. The offertory will be
given to Hazelton Hospital,
Soldiers' Aid
At a meeting of ihe Soldiers'
Aid held last week the following
new committeemen were appointed: S. Cline, Wm. Grant, Wm.
Wattie and H. Welch.
J. K. Frost has resigned the
secretaryship, and H. F. Glassey
has resigned from the committee
prior to his expected departure
from Hazelton.
Took Crew With it���Means Loss
To Ranchers
The ferry scow formerly used
on the Bulkley, which was to have
been placed in commission on the
Skeena to relieve the situation
resulting from the wreck of the
Skeena bridge, broke away while
George Beirnes and Frank Martin were working it across the
Bulkley. The heavy current
carried the scow as far as Kitse-
guecla, where, its crew had to
abandon it. The loss of the ferry
means that wagon road communication with the west side of the
Skeena and the Kispiox Valley
cannot be restored for some time.
The canoe ferry is in operation,
however, and passengers can
cross witnout difficulty.

TWO VIEWS.
It is strange to note how some
of our contemporaries entirely
disregard logic when putting forth their arguments. We
are told that if we vote for Union
government we are guilty of
supporting and building up an
autocracy in Canada; that if we
vote for the enforcement of tne
Military Service act we are aiding
in establishing in Canada a militarism such as we are fighting
against in Germany. Where is
the lo.uic of such arguments?
We would expect something more
moderate, more refined, from a
great daily like the Edmonton
Bulletin. Such arguments may
be used to advantage in the lumber camps of Quebec, but they
are quite out of place in Western
Canada.
Contrast the sane words of
Lord Shaughnessy, the head of
our great railway institution:
"They call to us for a further
supply of men to fill the gaps in
their depleted ranks, and failure
to respond to that call would not
only be a lasting disgrace to Canada, but might be a matter of no
small moment in determining the
outcome of the struggle."
In addition, it is desired to collect all photographs dealing with
the mobilization, training and
departure of troops, together
with pictures illustrating reviews
sports, presentations, etc. Any
photograph of this nature is regarded as a document of historical importance, and it is hoped
that the possessors of all photographs of such will deem it their
duty to send either the originals
or copies, which will ultimately
be placed in the permanent public archives of the Dominion.
All photographs, which will be
acknowledged, should be addressed to the Officer i | c Canadian

Send Your War Photographs
The officer in co iimand of the
Canadian War Records has asked
us to make known that it is
desired to compile a complete
history in photographs of the
Canadians' share in the war, in
the same way that all other belligerent countries are compiling
similar records.
It is particularly desired to obtain photographs of all officers,
N. C. O.'s and men who have
served or are now serving in the
overseas military forces of Canada, and it is requested that an
appeal should be made to this
end through these columns.
All officers and other ranks
serving overseas may find it difficult to send in their photographs
and their relatives are therefore
especially appealed to to send in
their photographs for them.
By preference,the photographs
should be unmounted and printed
on bromide paper, in order to ensure permanence. Each photograph should be accompanied by
a concise record, not exceeding
200 or 300 words.of the subject's
military career, including date of
enlistment, promotions, distinction?, and so on, as this will
greatly assist in obtaining a full
and accurate record of all concerned.
lates Premier Lloyd Ceorge on
the effectiveness and vigor of his
defence. It says: "Outside critics overreach themselves. They
should take a lesson from Mr.
Asquith in abstaining from malice and irrelevance in criticism."
The Daily Telegraph says he
won hands down, adding: "No
movement against a government
in our time ever perhaps was
so completely defeated in a single
speech."
"The premier achieved a great
personal triumph," says the
Times, "and also vindicated the
essential soundness in its broad
principles the scheme for a closer
union of the Allies.'-
The Daily Mail congratulates
the premier on "his brilliant
success" and wishes that all on
whom he relies orf for co-operation and support were as energetic as Lloyd George himself.

London: Italy's armies are
making an heroic, and so far
successful, stand against the
Austro-German masses thrown
against them in desperate attacks
along the line of the Piave river,
and in the mountainous region of
the Trentino district. The river
line has not been breached at
any point, while the thrust of
the Austrians southward from
the hills in an attempt to drive
a wedge through the plains be
hind the Piave river line is making slow progress. Near the
Adriatic "the water barrier to any
Austro German advance toward
Venice, raised by opening flood
gates into the swampy region, is
being reinforced by the work of
the army artillery and the guns
of the Italian warships on the
Adriatic.
The Italian line yielded slightly
in the hills east of tirenta, where
tin,' capture of Monte Prassolan
by the Austro-German troops is
announced by BeWn. No further advances for the attacking
forces in the mountain region
northeast of Asiago are claimed.
Military operation in the other
war theaters is on a comparatively small scale. The most important move was made in Flanders
by the British, who pushed further
north on the Goeburg spur, northwest of Passchendaele, capturing
the strongly-fortified redoubt of
Vocation Farm, improving thei ���
positions on this sector to make
the present line across Passchendaele Ridge easier to hold.
In Palestine the British forces
which recently made so spectacular an advance up the Mediterranean coast to the neighborhood
of Jaffa,are still moving forward,
but are apparently feeling their
way with caution. The Turks
are giving signs of making a
stand a few miles north of Jaffa,
where they are reported to be
preparing entrenched positions.
In the sectoV of the French
front held by American troops
there has been increased artillery
activity,incidental to which there
have been additions to the American casualty list, some of which
occurred when a German shell
hit an Amciican gun.
Washington: America expects
to see military unity, and unity
of purpose and aims grow out of
the Paris war council. All the
Allied powers will lay their cards
on the table. The U.S. has only
one war aim. the crushing of
Hohenzollernism, If any nation
has secret treaties the U,S. ex
pects that they be known. The
United Press has authoritatively
learned that the American mission headed by Col. House will
enter the war council with these
view's.

Rome: The Austrians who
forced their way across the Piave
river above Zenson have been
thrown into the river, drowned,
bayonetted, killed or captured,

threatened point. The fight was
one of the most fearful and most
glorious chapters of the war.
London: East and northeast
of Ypres the British are now
well-established on Paschendaele

beyond. The Germans are fighting on their last line of defence

the German line of Djuai, Cambrai and St. Quentin. Cambrai
is almost in the hands of the
British. The attack began at
