An Apology
In last week's issue we stated,
in connection with the report of
the inquest on the death of John
Leptich at the Rocher de Boule
that deceased met death from a
fall of rock "presumably from
rotten timbers." From the evidence at the adjourned inquest,
it was clearly shown that the
miner came by his death purely
through accident. The Miner
believes it was the victim of
erratic reports and placed too
much credence in unreliable information, and tenders its sincer
est apologies to the management
of the Rocher de Boule mine for
unfortunate quotation.

SHOULD ATTEND
BENEFIT CONCERT
Everbody should attend the
big concert and dance which is to
be held in Assembly Hall on Friday evening, September 14, the
program for which has now been
prepared by the ladies of the
W. A. of Hazelton in conjunction
with Mrs. Dalby Morkill.
The program will be of a varied
character, and will include a
number of vocal and instrumental solos, recitations, dialogues
and costume songs. Proceedings
will commence at 8:30 sharp.
Doors will be closed during the
performance   of   each   number.
It is confidently anticipated
that a record crowd will swamp
the hall for what will probably
be the best affair of its kind ever
staged in Hazelton, and a double
incentive is added by the kind
offer of Mrs. D. B. Morkill, the
well-known singer of Vancouver,
to appear, and the fact that the
Hazelton boys in khaki will benefit by the proceeds of the evening's entertainment.
Card of Thanks
The secretary of the Soldiers'
Aid wishes to thank S. H. Hoskins and Mrs. Alex Rankin for
their kind donations of magazines, which will be despatched
to the Hazelton boys in the
trenches.
Development of the Hazelton
View property, now under the
direction of D. B. Morkill, is proceeding satisfactorily. Ore for
shipment is being taken out and
will be sent to.the smelter at an
early date.
Ottawa: Units of the new
Canadianvarmy will be organized
on a territory basis, that is,
recruits will go to regiments
from their own district. Arrangements are pending for the
return of unfit soldiers and wives
of soldiers.
CLOSE SEASON
ON GROUSE
The game laws for 1917, as
promulgated at the instance of
the provincial government, include a section closing the season
for grouse shooting east of the
summit of the Cascades, which
takes in Omineca. This closure
will be accepted by all the true
sportsmen of this district as a
good thing, it being the only
means of restocking the country
with "chicken" who were within an ace of being classed with
the dynosaurus of the stone age
as a species extinct.

Rev. R. C. Scott will preach
tomorrow evening at 7:30 on the
subject: "The Babylon of Life.'

MINISTERS VISIT DISTRICT
Party of Provincial Government
Paid Hazelton Fleeting
Visit
There arrived in Hazelton by
special train Saturday a party of
fifteen comprising a number of
provincial cabinet ministers, and
members of the legislative as-
semby, with their wives, who
are on a tour of Northern British
Columbia. The party included
the Premier, Hon. H. C. Brewster, Hon. John Oliver, minister
of agriculture, and Mrs. Oliver,
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of
lands, J. W. Weart, M. L. A. for
South Vancouver, and Mrs.
Weart, A. R. Barrow, M. L. A.
for Chilliwack, F. Mobley, member for Atlin, and Mrs. Mobley,
Alex. M. Manson, member for
Omineca, under whose direction
the visit has been made, and
Mrs. Manson, Surveyor-General
Umbach, Dr. Klinck, Dean of
Agriculture in the University of
British Columbia, and R. C. W.
Lett, of the colonization department of the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway.
The duration of the visit to
Hazelton was very short, too
short in fact to give the members
of the party an adequate insight
as to our town and surroundings.
The program laid down for the
visitors included a informal gathering at the Progress Club, a
motor trip to the Silver Standard
mine, a reception at Hazelton
Hospital and from thence to New
Hazelton, where a non-political
meeting was held Saturday evening. On Sunday the party went
east to Telkwa and Smithers
and from there to the Peace
River country, returning to Victoria by way of Edmonton and
Calgary.
TOOK A TRIP
TO THE SIBOLA
Henry Bretzins returned this
week from a trip to the Si bo] a
country, where he examined a
number of properties in that
region. He was especially enthusiastic about the showings
of the Emerald group (Sweeney
property) on Sweeney mountain,
declaring that he saw there some
of the finest silver-lead ore it had
been his lot to experience (and
Henry is an old-timer from the
Boundary country). Transportation was the main problem of
the region, he stated. On his
way in, Henry inspected a few
of the properties in the Telkwa
district and went over the Debenture group, of which he was
one of the two original locators,
and which is under development
on bond by T. H. Rea and associates. High-grade ore has been
struck on this promising silver-
lead property, though the main
vein has not been reached yet.
It is planned to build a wagon
road from the property to the
railroad at Doughty or Moricetown. . THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER, 8 1917

h I Established 1897 by the late J. O'Sullivan.   F. C. S., 2(i years with
Vivian & Sons, Swansea.
Some hitherto unpublished details of vital historic interest
about the part played by Italy on the eve of the great war towards
the salvation of France were divulged recently in the narrative
which Senator Guglielmo Marconi contributes to the Rome daily
Bn'letin I'lnformazione:
"Germany knew we would not back her savage attack against
the liberty of Europe, nor, in fact, did she attribute much
importance to our neutrality. Her irame was far deeper and more
treacherous. Germany wanted Italy to leave France in doubt as
to Italian intentions.
"On the morning of July 30, 1914, one day before Germany
declared war upon Russia, and two days before she declared war
upon France, the Marquis di San Giuliano,  Italian  minister of'Assay Office  and Mining Office;
j,      . a. ���       .   . i .i      r-, i i i        it   i> .i    i   Arts and Crafts Building. 578 Seymour Streei
foreign affairs, informed the French ambassador, M. Barrere, that  Vancouver, b.C.       '    {
Italy  would  not rally  to  Germany's side in a war of aggression, j The Estate of J.  O'Sullivan'
This assurance was telegraphed  immediately to Paris,   but
insufficient to reassure France completely, seeing that on our part
there was no official declaration of neutrality.
"On August 2, two days before England declared war against
Germany, the Italian government decided on a policy of neutrality.
Our ambassador being then absent from Paris, the news was
forthwith communicated to our charge d'affaires in a despatch
which arrived at one o'clock in the morning. Without a moment's
hesitation, our representative hurried to seek an audience with the
French premier, M. Viviani, who, entering the room, turned deadly-
pale and shrank back, feeling instinctively that nothing but Italy's
resolve to join hands with Germany could have constrained an
Italian diplomat to rouse himself at that unearthly hour. But no
sooner had M. Viviani perused the despatch than he gave full vent
to his emotion.
"Before another half-hour had elapsed the French prime
minister had already ordered the mobilization of nearly a million
men whom France would otherwise have been obliged to maintain
on her eastern and southern frontiers to guard against possible
attacks from Italy.
"It was that million men which arrested the German advance,
won the Battle of the Marne, and saved France from being trodden
under the savage heel of German militarism. Had there been the
faintest hesitation, the slightest vacillation on Italy's part, had any
Italian politician done a tenth part of what Bismarck did when  he!	
tampered with the famous Ems telegram which resulted in the READYMADE SUIT-- $15
Franco-Prussian war, France would not have dared to withdraw a SUITS MADE to MEASURE:
single soldier from the Italian frontier, and the world's history
would have taken a stupendously different course."

Following are suggestions put
forward by Hon. W. <J. Hanna,
Canadian food controller:
1. Use perishable food. Save
garden truck that has been produced so abundantly this summer. Preserve, dry, can and
store.
2. Eat more fish.
3. Substitute other cereals for
wheat products���cornmeal, buckwheat flour, rice flour and, above
all, oatmeal.
4. Don't throw good food into the garbage can. $50,000,000
is wasted every year in. this
country by carelessness in the
kitchens.
5. Preach once more the good
old-fashioned gospel of the clean
plate. Do not let the children
waste food at meals. Do not
waste it yourself.
A food conservation exhibit
in the government building of
the Canadian National Fair will
be held this year.
Food is being wasted in Canada | -
and it is a plain fact  that  every.
pound of bread and bacon that is!
saved  in Canada can be eaten in
the   war-ravaged   countries   of
Europe.     It is no news in you.
that  the people of France and
Britain have submitted cheerfully to an unheard.of restriction in
their food supplies.     The people
of Canada stand  for  the same
cause; let us then be determined
to help our heroic Allies  to a
finish.
What It Means
What the elimination of waste
means: feeding of the British!
population; saving money to each
Canadian household; filling the
dinner pails of our British brothers, and finally winning the war.
Prevention of Waste
The remarkable reduction of
the garbage output in some cities

northerly direction. In the region
of Mitau the battle is  still  pro-
SJ'ceed ing.
London: Four German mine
sweepers were destroyed off the
Jutland coast on Sunday, according to an official announcement.
A hundred badly-wounded German seamen landed, while scores
of bodies have been washed
ashore. It is also believed that
several submarines were captured during the raid, which was
made by the British light forces.
London: A successful air raid
was carried out by the British on
the Ghistelles airdrome. Several
direct hits were made and fires
started. Explosions were also
observed on the Ostend-Throuout
railroad.
Over 10,000 German prisoners
were taken in August, with 38
guns and 200 machine guns.
With the closing of a week of
comparative inactivity along the
western front, numerous signs
of a revival are apparent. In
Flanders the British guns again
are thundering the threat of the
renewal of infantry thrusts upon
the German lines, while French
troops are giving another display
of their successful dashing tactics
in the Aisne region.
On the Austro-Italian front the
Italians have aligned their forces
for another drive in force on the
Bainsizza plateau, and are again
edging toward Trieste. In the
fighting of Friday, the total of
prisoners taken in the offensive
was brought up to 27,000.
Mackensen's drive against the
Russo-Romanian lines does not
seem to be gaining the force it
promised to attain, and the Roumanians are hopeful of retaining
Moldavia.
There is no pronounced movement against Riga as suggested
by Russian reports, although
artillery fire is more pronounced.
