THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER IN NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
aimer
VOL. Ill, NO. 19
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 1914

HUERTA LIKE
Would-be Dictator of Mexico
Defies the Lightning of
Uncle   Sam's   Displeasure
WONT RESIGN PRESIDENCY
New York, Jan. 9:- The
World's Mexican correspondent
says President Huerta hurls defiance at the United States. Speaking of President Wilson, Huerta
says: "Hell will hold us both before I resign."
The transfer of Sir Lionel Car-
den from Mexico to Brazil is said
to be for the purpose of forcing
the United States to protect British .r.ibjects, according to a Washington despatch. This is flatly
denied in London. The transfer
is a promotion for Carden.
Presidio, Jan. 5:���Two thousand Mexican refugees, including
half-starved women and children
and some federal deserters, rushed across the river to the United
States to seek protection from
the battle at Ojinaga, Mexico,
opposite here.
PreBidio, Texas, Jan. 5:���Savage fighting between rebels and
federals at Ojinaga continued
thoughout the night and is still
in progress. The besiegt-d federals, who were thrown into a
panic at the first onslaught of
the constitutionalists, are now
resisting stubbornly all attempts
of the attacking army to drive
them from the town.
Before daybreak the artillery
fire of the constitutionalists
which had continued all night,
became more furious. A perfect rain of shells descended
upon the federals' entrenchments. Wounded soldiers who
found their way across the river
told the American Red Cross
officials that the federal losses
were heavy.
No Cause For Worry
Vancouver, Jan. 7:���In a business review of the past year,
conditions appear more favorable
than many people imagine. Vancouver, whose condition reflects
fairly well that of the province
as a whole, had about the same
trade through the custom house
in 1913 asfin 1912. Inland revenue returns were but slightly decreased. Building permits fell
off somewhat, but $10,000,000 is
still a splendid record for a city
of this class. The mineral yield
of the province is said to be the
second largest on record. The
fisheries set a new mark and this
is believed true of the orchard
and farm crops. School attendance shows a gain of 13 percent,
indicating an increase in the permanent population. On the
whole, British Columbia may
well start the New Year in an
optimistic frame of mind.
Education in the province during the past year entailed the expenditure of $4,658,804 by the
provincial government and the
various municipalities and school
districts. There was a large increase in enrolment over former
years.
Canadian Northern
Wants Time Extended
Victoria, Jan. 7: -Sir Donald
Mann, vice-president of the Canadian Northern Pacific railway,
who arrived from the East today,
is here to apply for an extension
of the time set by the government for the completion of the
Canadian Northern's transcontinental line. The road was to
have been completed in July,
but the company requires an extension until September, owing to
the difficulty in procuring steel
for bridges and to various engineering handicaps. The grading
will be completed before July,
Sir Donald says, and through
passenger and freight trains will
be in operation before the end of
the year. He has just completed
an inspection of the lines on the
prairie and officiated at the spike-
driving ceremonies at the linking
up of the eastern and western
sections, 25 miles east of Port
Arthur, on Friday last.
Toronto. Jan. 9:���Sir William
Mackenzie says the C. N. R. will
spend ten millions for rolling
stock this year. The road spent
a total of fifty millions last year.
He asserts that money will be
easier.
CHAIRMAN OF G. T, P.
SPEAKS FOR CANADA
London, Jan. 5:���Speaking at
the Wolfe birthday dinner, Alfred W. Smithers, chairman of
the Grand Trunk Railway, remarked that there are some people in this country today, who, in
a somewhat parrot-like fashion
take up the cry that Canada is
growing too fast.
"I do not think they realize
that Canada has been going
through a most difficult time for
the last eighteen months," said
Mr. Smithers. "The crisis they
talk of is to a great extent passed. Canada was caught like a
ship carrying full sail in a storm
of scarce and dear money. I say
unhesitatingly she stood the
strain magnificently, and I do
not know any other country so
suddenly confronted by such difficulties which has ever come
through such a period so well.
"It may be necessary for the
whole world to go slower for
a while till capital accumulates,
but that will soon happen, and I
am sure no country will take a
longer and surer stride forward
than Canada. I will urge my
countrymen to go out there and
see things for themselves, and I
am certain that as intercourse increases between the people of
Canada and the Motherland, the
greater will be the prosperity
both will attain."
Chamberlain Resigns Seat
London, Jan. 7: Hon. Joseph
Chamberlain, the veteran Unionist leader, has resigned his seat
in the house of commons. Owing to advancing age and illness,
he has been unable to attend parliament for many months. It is
probable that Neville Chamber-
[ lain, son of the retiring chief,
I will be his successor.
ANOTHER SHOOTING AFFRAY
IS
Dispute Over Board Accounts Ends in Serious Manner���
Victim in Hospital arid Assailant in Lockup���May Have
Been Case of Self-Defence
As a result of a shooting affray
at South Bulkley, Alfred Wright
is in the Hospital with a bullet
wound through his cheeks, while
August Johnson is in custody.
Wright and his brother, it appears, had some difficulty about
board accounts with Johnson,
who is a section foreman. They
went to the cabin of the latter
on Sunday morning, to demand
a settlement. Johnson was not
ready to settle, and the Wrights
threatened to break the door.
On this, it is charged, Johnson
discharged a rifle  through the
closed door, the bullet striking
Afred Wright in the right cheek
and passing through the tongue
and the left jaw. The wounded
man was taken to Decker lake,
but as there was no physician at
that point, Dr. Maclean was summoned from Smithers, and on
Monday Wright was removed to
Hazelton Hospital. His condition
is not regarded as serious. Constable Russell brought Johnson
down on the same train. The
prisoner will receive his preliminary trial in Hazelton.

native of Germany, he was well
educated, and had followed the
mining industry for many years,
adopting barbering as a trade
when ill-health prevented prospecting. He came to Hazelton
three years ago. An autopsy
was performed by Dr. Stone,
and an inquest will be held on
Monday. The funeral took place
on Thursday afternoon.

CUP MATCHES
Hockey Champions Go Down
To Defeat Before Speedy
Team From New Hazelton
SMITHERS PLAYS TONIGHT
The hockey season opened with
a whitewash for the home team,
Mew Hazeltun getting five goals
to nil. The defeat is to be
charged to weakness in the forward division, of which the well-
balanced septette from the new
took advantage.
Starting at 9.08 p. m. and
playing three fifteen-minute periods, the game was not as one
sided as the score would indicate.
Irwin and O'Shea played a sterling defensive game and essayed
several rushes, but they could
not do it all. MacKay and O'Brien worked hard enough, only
lack experience. Blyth is a
fast skater and will be in shape
for the big game against Smithers on the 16th.
All of the New Hazelton players worked hard and fast, and
are a likely looking aggregation.
Hugh Taylor was referee, and
D. R. McLean and J. M. MacCormick acted as timekeepers.
S. J. Martin was goal umpire.

Notwithstanding the  wide   financial depression,   which  hi s
c'lecked new enterprises the world over, the year 1914 is opening
with the brightest of prospects for British Columbia.     The people

a prominent place in maritime construction.
It is also learned, on high authority, that the Dominion government, at the session which opens next week, will introduce tt measure granting a subsidy for shipbuilding in Canada. Whether this
will form part of the naval policy, or whether il will be made a
saparate bill is not yet known, but in either case it is certain to
meet with the support of Canadians, irrespective of party. Doubtless the assurance of such legislation was a factor in securing the
Yarrow enterprise for British Columbia.

Want to See King George
London, Jan. 7: -The militant
suffragettes are planning to secure an audience with the King,
without the aid of the cabinet,
to protest against what they
term the torture of prisoners
who are forcibly fed when on
hunger strikes, and to demand
the vote for women.
London, Jan. 5:���The Statist
publishes Sir George Paish's review of his recent visit to Canada, in which he deals with the
Canadian railway construction
now in its penultimate stage.
He declares that proportionate
to its population no country has
ever built railways so rapidly as
Canada recently. Sir George
says that having regard to all
the conditions, it is evident
that the agricultural production
of Canada will redouble in the
next few years. He anticipates
that in the next decade the value
of Canada's agricultural, mineral,
piscatorial and industrial production will probably show a threefold increase.
