SMITHERS MAZELTON 4
Local Team Suffers First Defeat
of Season at Smithers
Last Wednesday
On heavy ice at Smithers, on
Wednesday, the home team defeated the champion Hazelton
sextette 6-4. Hazelton scored
the first goal, but Smithers came
right back and at the end of the
first period were leading 4-1.
After the rest, Hazelton took a
brace, gathering two in short
order, Smithers failing to increase their count. In the final
period, Hazelton tallied in two
minutes, tying the score, after
which the play was fast and
furious, neither side scoring until the last three minutes, when,
with one of the visitors on the
fence, Smithers went through
for two. Hazelton's goals were
scored by O'Shea, Hume and Al.
McDougall (2). Smithers were
strengthened by the addition of
Graham and Kenney, Irwin of
the Hazelton team being an absentee. A. Harris and Ward
handled the game.

NEWS PARAGRAPHS
London, Feb. 13:-~The British
army in France is now using
heavy howitzers which, according to a report from an official
eye-witness, have gained an ascendancy over the German heavy
guns. These howitzers, he states,
were used in successful attacks
on German positions in the brick
fields south of La Bassee a week
ago tonight.
Our heavy howitzers took part
in this bombardment, their fire
being directed on a railway triangle. The eye-witness says:
"The boom of these pieces and
the detonations of their shells
were audible twenty miles away,
above the roar of other artillery,
while to those close at hand the
shrieking of the great projectiles
was most impressive, as were
the volumes of smoke and
debris thrown up. The effect of
the lyddite shells was truly terrific, one house being blown bodily into the air, and as they burst
among the brick stacks they
created great havoc among the
enemy."
Petrograd, Feb. 12, official
communication:���On the front
between Niemen and the lower
Vistula separate actions have
taken place at five points. On
the  left   bank  of  the  Vistula
nothing has occurred  except   a
cannonade, in which our artillery
has  maintained a very  effective
fire.      In   the Carpathians,   we
have   repulsed   attacks   by   the
enemy in the region of Svidnik,
near    Wyszzkow   and   Porogui, |
and in the vicinity of Rostoka, ]
near the Bukowina frontier.    At
daybreak on Feb. 11 the Germans
once    more  suffered   enormous
losses  near hill  No. 992, in the,
neighborhood    of     Koziouwka, j
where   they  made two attacks
without success.     In the region
of Luthivisk  and  Ravadok, ouri
troops  captured a portion of the |
enemy's   trenches,   taking   five!
hundred    prisoners  and    three
machine guns.
Petrograd:���The capture of
Przemsyl is believed to be imminent. The city, which has been
invested by the Russians virtually since the collapse of the first
Austrian advance on Lemberg,
is abandoned br its population
and only the Austrian garrison
remains.
Sydney, Feb. 13:���The first
Australian naval military expedition has returned after capturing
every German possession and!
depot in the Pacific, including
New Guinea, Kaiser Wilhelms-
I land, Bismarck, Pelew, Ladrones, i
Caroline, Marshall, Bougainville
and Admiralty Group Islands.
German officials were superseded
and deported to Australia. The
only casualties were six killed
and six wounded.
Petrograd:���In bayonet fighting, in the vicinity of Dukla Pass,
Austrians lost 8,300 killed and
1,000 prisoners. They have been
driven back to Seaboro, where
the conflict continues in the
snow. Fighting has resumed on
Donajek and the Russians have
advanced to Krosionko.
Havre:���It is believed in shipping circles that the British
steamer Oriole, which has been
missing since Jan. 30, was sunk
in the English Channel by a submarine. A London trader was
sunk on the same date, four of
the survivors landing today.
Paris, official:���From the sea
to Lys, Nieuport, and the country
of dunes, a violent bombardment
by the enemy has taken place.
Our artillery replied effectively.
On both sides artillery is active
between the Oise and Aisne.
Ten German aeroplanes dropped
bombs on Verdun, but they were
driven off and no damage was
done. At Arras we blew up two
mines and captured the enemy's
outposts.

London, Feb. 8:���English refugees from Constantinople declare that the former German
cruiser Goeben, now owned by
Turkey, was so badly damaged
by striking a Turkish mine that
it will be impossible to repair her
at Constantinople. This virtual
loss of the services of the Goeben, reduces the Turkish fleet to a
state of inferiority as compared
with the Russian Black Sea fleet,
which is about to be strengthened by a new dreadnought, now
being built at Sebastopol. It is
believed when this ship joins the
fleet, Russia will attack in the
Bosphorus and Black Sea, while
the Allied fleet will attempt to
force the Dardanelles.
Paris, Feb. 8, official:���On the
night of Feb. 6-7, the enemy delivered, in the region surrounding

London, Feb. 9: The official
press bureau has made public an
official despatch from Cairo, which
states that the Turkish army is
in full retreat eastward. There
are no enemy forces within twenty miles of the Suez Canal, the
despatch savs, excepting small
retiring rearguards.
Paris, Feb. 9, official:-On the
night of Feb. 6-7 the enemy exploded three series of mines at
La Boisselle, in front of the
houses in the village which we
occupied. Two companies and
a half were then sent against
our position, but were unable to
get beyond the excavations made
by the explosions. During the
afternoon of Feb. 7, a counter
attack executed by one of our
companies drove the enemy from
the excavations, which we immediately occupied. The Germans left two hundred dead on
the ground.

FIRST CANADIAN CONTINGENT IN FRANCE
Toronto, Feb. 9:���Despite Germany's threats to destroy the
transports, it is apparent, from
private despatches received here,
that the bulk of the Canadian
First Contingent has safely crossed the English Channel. The
men landed at Havre, and some
of them are encamped or billeted

No. 24
The exposition of the land policy of the Provincial administration and of the manner in which it has worked out, as given by Mr.
W. R. Ross, minister of lands, a few days ago, was very simple,
yet full and convincing. As a defence of that policy against the
unreasonable'and unfounded attacks of the Opposition press and
Opposition speakers, it left nothing to be desired. Mr. Ross displayed a complete mastery of the facts, and he left his antagonists
not a leg to stand on. We are not so unsophisticated as to assume
his statements will silence the clamor of his critics. They still
have the dictionary at their command, and possibly there are some
adjectives which they have not employed. Mr. Ross has given the
public facts which are incontrovertible. He showed how the land
policy of the administration has been modified as circumstances
required; how so far from the major part of the best farming land
in the Province being locked up in the hands of speculators, it is
available for pre-emption. He cast a great and useful light upon a
subject that has b ien grossly misrepresented not only in British
Columbia, but elsewhere in Canada and in the United Kingdom as
well.
In the closing part of his remarks, Mr. Ross briefly touched
upon a subject of very great importance. Every person, who has
had opportunities of judging, has realized more or less strongly
that the pre-emption system is not as useful as could be wished.
Theoretically it seems to be based upon a sound idea, and in many
cases results justify it. But in very many others the life of the
pre-emptor is uphill on a pretty stiff grade. Mr Ross would like to
secure as pre-emptors men who are farmers first, whatever they
may be afterwards, men who look primarily to the land for their
sustenance, and not to look upon their pre-empted area as merely
a place to live while they earn a livlihood at something else. This
is not exactly the way Mr. Ross stated his views, but it is what we
understand them to be. We think they are sound views, and
would, if they can be carried into effect, mean very much for the
settlement of our farm lands by a thrifty agricultural population.
���Colonist.
Arrangements have been made
whereby the ordinary rate of two
cents per ounce applicable only
to the United Kingdom, will apply also to letters addresed to
British and Canadian troops on
the continent. The rate on ordinary letters from Canada to the
continent is five cents for the
first ounce and three cents for
each subsequent ounce, so that
this extension of the two cent an
ounce rate to letters addressed to
our soldiers on the continent is a
decided reduction in favor of correspondence going to the soldiers
German, which were interned in
Uuited States ports on the outbreak of the war. These ships,
when transferred to American
registry, would be employed on
the usual trade routes as far as
possible, but it is understood that
they would be used principally in
the South American trade.
The Washington Administration's ship purchase bill is in difficulties. Seven Democratic senators have bolted and the majority party is confronted with a
reverse. It is evident that unless
concessions are marie by the administration, the bill will be left
high and dry on the rocks.
The object of the measure is to
authorize the purchase by the
government of merchant vessels
of   belligerent   nations,    chiefly
The following is taken from a
Montreal news item:
"Three Canadian Express refrigerator cars, carrying 60,000
pounds���thirty tons���of prime
halibut, taken from the waters
of the Pacific Ocean off Prince
Rupert, B. C, passed through
the city for St. John, N. B.,
where the fish is to be shipped
by ss. Seandinavion to the British market. A trial shipment of
20,000 pounds of halibut was
made up in Prince Rupert last
month and when opened up in
England was found to be in first-
class condition, leading to the
placing of other large orders.
It is only since the completion of
the Grand Trunk Pacific transcontinental line a few months
ago that Prince Rupert fish has
been on sale in Eastern Canada

Why Britain Fight*
"We Germans love the French
and Belgians who are forced into
the war," says Dr. Bernhard
Dernburg, in his address Sunday
at New Rochelle. This explains I
why the British are fighting soj
desperately. j
Judging from the experience!
of France and Belgium only a
rugged and husky nation can
survive German affection. After
the first demonstration of German love toward Belgium, Great
Britain naturally decided that it
was better to fight. Otherwise
the Germans might take a notion
to love the British, too.
Certainly, if the Germans love
the French and Belgians, as Dr.
Dernburg says, the British can
hardly be blamed for preferring
German hatred, as giving them
at least a fighting chance.���New

infantry engaged at Bagatelle

Tie fighting, The writer expresses the belief that the Germans
lost in killed and wounded, at
least three companies. "We had
seven killed and six wounded."
The Germans began the action
with an intense artilllery fire.
They hurled hand grenades at a
position on the first line of
trenches, causing serious loss to

Paris. Feb. 10: -Aneye witness
with the French army says, "The
last period of ten days has been
one of eomnarative calm. Actions were engaged in by small
forces without effect on operations generally." Fighting on
the Emperor's birthday, he asserts, the French found a number of bodies, which, in view of

London. Feb. 11:-A despatch
to the "Daily Telegraph" from
Rotterdam reports a successful
air raid by the Allies over Dus-
seldorf. The Germans, according to the correspondent, fearing such a raid at Dusseldorf,
recently built a secret warehouse

this store and dropped bombs on

tribute is paid to I he heroism of
the native troops, who held conquered positions and inflicted
severe punishment on the Germans. As during the preceding

of the Germans between La Bassee and Arras are reported, more

Pari:^.   official: - During   the
night of  Feb. 9-10  we blew up
at  La  Boisselle,   three series of
mines  and   succeeded in occupying the excavations thus made,
notwithstanding   a   counter   attack, which we repulsed with the
bayonet.     In Argonne there has
been artillery fightingand throwing of  bombs on all  sides, particularly in the region of Bolante

| have made a very  violent but
| fruitless attack on  the  fortress
of Marie Thereso.
In Lorraine, at La Lisiere,
north of the forest of Parroy,
our advance posts have repulsed
an attack by the enemy. A minor action, which took place to
th'H east of Manonviller, ended in
(he pursuit of the Germans by
our Hussars. In Vosges, at La
Fontainelle, an attack by the enemy has been checked.
Petrograd. Feb. 12:-The following is a statement from the
general staff:���"It has been definitely established that the Germans are concentrating very
great forces in East Prussia.
These forces have started an  of
fensive, which they are developing, especially in the direction of
Wilkowyszki and Lyck. The
presence is reported of units of
new recruits fro n central Germ-

Geneva:���The most violent artillery duel that has occurred in
Alsace since the beginning of the
war was commenced yesterday.
As the result of the battle, an exodus of German families from
Mulhausen, Kolmar and Strass-
burg, has commenced.
London:��� Teleg raphing from
Petrograd, the Daily Chronicle's
correspondent says, "Indications
are that the Germans plan to
withdraw from Lodz. All wool
stores have been removed from
the factories there, and sent to
Germany"
London,���"Word has reached
here from Christiania," says the
Daily News' Copenhagen correspondent, "That during the recent
heavy weather in the North Sea,
German submarines arrived at
Trondhjem, Bergen, Stavenger

of them in a badly battered condition and their crews on the
verge of exhaustion. Norwegian
natrol cruisers escorted the craft
into port, where they were informed that they must leave
within twenty-four hours. This
they did."
