PLOT AGAINST
ULSTEIMEN
Allegation That Asquith Government Propo 8 sd to Over-
Awe Unionists  by   Force
London, April 20:���It is difficult to conceive of anything less
suggestive of Irish peace than
the angry charges and countercharges thrown from side to side
this morning regarding the alleged Ulster plot. The Unionist
forwards were most definite in
their allegations that Winston
Churchill and David Lloyd George, with the connivance of Colonel Seely, Sir John French and
Sir Arthur Paget, planned to
overawe Ulster, even at the risk
of drenching the ��� province in
blood. What seems probable is
that a sub-committee of the cabinet, headed by Churchill, determined that the time had come to
assert the power of the govern-
��� ment by a demonstration of
force, occupying Ulster with
foot and artillery, supported by
battleships and destroyers.

UNITED STATES SEIZES PORTS
OF MEXICO-WAR IMMINENT
Affront to American Flag Precipitates Intervention���
President Wilson Authorized to Use Army and Navy
Against Huerta���Mexican Factions Will Unite to
Oppose Invading Forces.
Our Mineral Production
London, April 20:���The publication of the mining statistics of
Canada has been skilfully handled by those responsible for Canadian publicity on this side and
some rather striking analyses
have been made and have created
a favorable impression.
The first fact impressed on all
is that in a year of financial
stringency and depression the
Dominion registered a record in
mineral production. Both those
who have inclined to pessimism
and those who have openly
preached blue ruin for Canada
must be impressed with the fact
that in minerals alone Canada
produced nearly $20 per head of
her population.
Washington, April 22:���United
States warships have seized Tampico and Vera Cruz, the two
ports of entry on the Atlantic
coast of Mexico, and" have taken
over the custom houses and the
railway from Vera Cruz to Mexico City. There has been no declaration of war, the action of
the United States having been
taken as a means of enforcing
compliance with the American
demand for a salute to the flag
by Huerta, provisional president
of Mexico.
Regarding the American action
as the beginning of war, the federalists and revolutionaries have
suspended their civil war, and
are expected to join in opposing
the invaders, ln Mexico City,
the capital, anti-American demonstrations are of hourly occurrence.
The greater part of the United
States fleet is now in Mexican
waters, and troops are being
concentrated along the border.
F.
Glassey-Wessel
On Thursday morning H
Glassey and Miss Sarah Wessel
were married in St. Peter's
Church, by Rev. W. S. Larter.
The bride is a sister of Mrs.
Hugh Taylor. The young couple,
who are the recipients of good
wishes from many friends, will
reside in Hazelton for some weeks,
but will make their permanent sheep of the male sex and over
home in the Kispiox Valley.

Mrs. Fakeley. who has been

fon last Sunday, and is staying j^tes inclusive, in the years 1914
at the Hospital for a few days. | and 1915
before going to resume her duties
ut Kispiox school.
On April 9 unarmed sailors
from the United States steamship Dolphin were arrested at
Tampico, while taking off supplies for their ship. The men
were later released, on orders
from General Huerta. The Mexican president, in apologising for
the incident, declared that martial law was in force and that
the sailors had no right to land.
The American admiral, Mayo,
deemed the affront to the United
States flag so serious that he declared the apology insufficient
and demanded that the American Hag be saluted with special
ceremony.
The action of Admiral Mayo
was sustained by President Wilson, and General Huerta was
notified that the demand for a
21-gun salute must be acceded
to. This the Mexican president
refused.
Practically the entire Atlantic
fleet was orderer' to Mexican
waters to enforce the apologetic
salute. Huerta persisted in his
refusal to fire the salute unless
it was answered gun for gun,
and on Monday President Wilson
appeared before congress to explain the situation and ask for
approval and support in the action he had taken. He answered
one year of age throughout the Huertft.8 dena���Ce by asking con-

"This government can, I earnestly hope, in no circumstances
be forced into war with the people of Mexico. If armed conflict
should unhappily come as a result of his (Huerta's) attitude of
physical resentment towards the
government, we should be fighting only General Huerta and
those who adhere to him and
give him support, and our object
would be only to restore to the
people of the distracted republic
the opportunity to set up again
their own laws and their own
government."
A bill to appropriate $50,000,-
000 to be expended by the president was introduced, and the
resolution asked for by Mr. Wilson was passed in the house by
337 to 37. In the senate there
was delay, the matter being debated on the ground that it was
inadvisable to individualize Huerta in the resolution.
Vera Cruz, April 21:���Part of
the American fleet has been
diverted to this port, which is
being fortified by the Mexican
government. It is expected that
the United States forces will
seize the customhouse and the

Winnipeg Special Delayed
Prince George, April 20:���The
special train making the return
trip on the newly-linked up G.
T. P. transcontinental arrived
here yesterday with Mr. Morley
Donaldson, vice-president and
general manager, and other officials on board. On account of
the soft track and trouble at
several of the temporary bridges,
slow progress has been made on
the journey, and it was necessary
to leave the train here and make
the crossing of the Fraser river
in launches. Announcement was
made by Mr. A. B. Smith, manager of the telegraph service,
that the telegraph line had been
completed through to the coast,
but that it would be some time
before a regular commercial service could be started.

J 1' matter not generally
/J^ known or fully appreciated with regard to commercial printing is the fad that
style, display (by which is
meant typographical arrangement) and type-faces are subject to change, as in the case
of clothing and other fashions.
���I Modern printing shows a
maiked tendency towards the
neat and plain in display with a
liberal use of margin, as opposed to the old-style methods of
coarse, overcrowded and over-
ornamental composition. Not
every printer can give you the
better class of work. It is,
therefore, fo your interest to see
that your printing is done at
the most fully equipped commercial printing plant in the
Northern Interior, carrying a
large and high-grade stock of
stationery, and employing workmen of experience and ability.
