VOL. IV, NO. 37
Victoria. May 15:���A raiding
party of Germans from Washington, in a launch, are reported to
have made an attempt to cut the
Canadian - Australian cable at
Bamfield. They were driven off
by the guard. A government
patrol boat has been despatched
in search of the would-be invaders.
Dave Loughnan Wounded
Corporal D. Loughnan, who
left The Miner staff last August
to go to the front, was wounded
in the great battle at Ypres. So
far as known, Dave was the only
Hazelton man engaged in the
fight which established the reputation of Canada's soldiers.
His wounds are not thought to
be serious.
Murderer to Hang
Vancouver: ��� T. C. McKillar-
ney, found guilty of the murder
of Detective Levis on August 25
last, was sentenced to be hanged
on Aug. 3.
The government agent has received from W. J. Goepel, provincial treasurer of the Patriotic
Fund, acknowledgment of a
cheque for $2,332.46 for the
Omineca district fund. This
included $1000 from the district
between Telkwa and Rose Lake.
Previous remittances totalled
$917.50. The list is still open,
and Mr. Hoskins requests subscribers to remit to him. Acknowledgment of subscriptions
by towns and districts will be
made next week, with additional
individual subscriptions.
A special train from Smithers
will bring the Bulkley Valley
excursionists and the Smithers
ball team down to Hazelton's big
celebration on May 24.
R. Ponder, who left the police
staff to join the navy, has received a commission. S. Geary,
who is also in the navy, received
his commission some months ago.
Registrar Kirby has been notified that all applicants for naturalization must appear in court
personally, accompanied by two
British subjects to vouch for
Many friends will extend congratulations to John L. Christie,
the popular merchant of Telkwa,
who was recently married, in
Vancouver, to Edith M. French,
of Edinburgh, Scotland.
F. W. Dowling, superintendent
of the government telegraphs, is
here this week. He is arranging
for repairs to several sections of
the system. A small crew will
immediately start repoling six
miles of the line immediately
west of Hazelton.
Paris, May 15 (official) :-To
the north of Arras, condition of
ground has rendered operations
difficult. Our offensive, however, has been continued. At
the southeast of Angres we have
attacked and taken a strong German trench extending on a front
of about two-thirds of a mile; a
forest which had been organized
for defence, and behind that a
trench of the second line. We
found in this vicinity 407 Germans dead. More to the south
we have continued clearing of
slopes east and south of Notre
Dame de Lorette. We have
taken additional houses at Neu-
ville St. Vaast. According to
the testimony of prisoners, our
artillery has inflicted extremely
heavy losses on the enemy. The
number of officers made prisoner
since Sunday is about 100. The
number of guns captured is 20,
including eight heavy guns. In
addition, we have taken one
hundred machine guns and bomb
The enemy obtained a momentary footing in our first line, but
were forced back by a counter
Capetown: ��� Grave anti-German rioting is reported in some
of the principal towns of the
Union, and is accompanied by
wholesale destruction of German
property. The total loss is expected    to    exceed   $5,000,000.
Towns of Johannesburg, Kim-
berly, Bloemfontein and Port
Elizabeth were scenes of rioting.
Petrograd (official): ���In the
region of Shavli, fighting is de-
veveloping under conditions favorable to us. Yesterday we took
more than 1000 prisoners and
captured nine machine guns. In
Western Galicia intensity of
fighting lessened on May 10.
Our troops are concentrating
gradually on the line of the river
San with the object of occupying
a shorter front. The Austrian
army evacuated, on the 11th,
a strongly fortified position extending from Bistritza river to
the Rumanian frontier���about 94
miles���and fell back precipitately
on the 12th beyond the River
Pruth. The enemy's cavalry,
which was sacrificed in repeated
charges to protect the general
retreat, was dispersed by our
fire. Our cavalry divisions broke
through the enemy's front at
various points and by successful
charges threw the enemy's columns, which were on the march,
into disorder.
Rome, May 15:��� Troops have
occupied Milan, where a strike
has been declared as a protest
against Italy's delay in entering
the war. The army is concentrated on the Austrian border
and the fleet is prepared for action. Parliament is to decide
the war question.   Twenty thou
sand people assembled in front
of the Austrian and German embassies here to denounce the
Washington: Herr Dernburg,
the German emissary, has been
recalled as a result of the cabinet's displeasure at his speech
justifying the sinking of the
Lusitania. Bernstorff's recall is
Washington, May 14: ��� The
president's note to Germany,
presented today, calls attention
to the "unlawful and inhumane
destruction of the Lusitania"
and to other violations of American rights. Germany is asked
to disavow the acts of submarine
commanders in torpedoing the
Lusitania and Gulfiight; to make
reparation, and to take steps to
prevent recurrence. No time is
set for a reply and no course of
action in the event of non-compliance is indicated. The note
concludes with the statement
that it is the duty of the United
States to omit no word or act in
defence of the rights of the
American people.
Germany will probably attempt
to justify its submarine action,
and is expected to insist on the
right to destroy vessels carrying
contraband. It is believed the
United States, in that case, will
not declare war, but will denounce Germany as an outlaw
among nations, will discontinue
relations, and seize interned
ships if further attacks are made.
London, May 10:���The identification of the nameless dead from
the Lusitania is the only immediate problem. The Cunard company's report has dissipated the
last hope that there might be
other survivors, and the death
roll totals well up to 1500.
Lord Mersey is to conduct an
inquiry, and until that begins official opinion as to how the Lusitania came to be caught and why
so many lives were lost will remain a secret. The general unofficial opinion is that several
German submarines were employed, and that they maneuvered the steamer into a position
from which she could not escape.
Passengers say the vessel had
altered her course before the
first torpedo was fired, and they
believe one submarine showed
itself, sending the liner in the
direction where other underwater
craft lay in wait.
Liverpool: The sinking of the
Lusitania caused anti - German
riots here. Shops owned by Germans were wrecked. Twenty of
the rioters were arrested.
Victoria: Anti-German demonstrations caused the reading
of the riot act by the mayor. On
the failure of the crowds to disperse and the refusal of the firemen to turn the hose on them,
martial law was proclaimed. In
the rioting, the crowds wrecked
the Kaiserhof and Deutscher
Verein bars and attacked the
stores of Simon Leiser, Moses
Lentz, and Carl Lowenburg.
Paris: Six Turkish transports
have been sunk in the Bosphorus
and two in the Sea of Marmora
by the Russians.
Geneva: An Italian army of
600 000, fully equipped and ready
for the field, has been concentrated at Verona.
Austrians   and   Germans are
fleeing from all parts of Italy.
London, May 11:���Sir John
French reports no change in the
general situation on the western
front today.
The Paris official report says
enemy positions at St. George's,
Belgium, were captured yesterday. In a night attack the Germans attempted their recapture,
but were repulsed.
To the north of Arras, where
the French gained ground yes
terday,  further progress   was
made, especially between Caren
cy and Sanchez.
In the last two days ten cannon
and fifteen machine guns have
been captured, and a numbef of
prisoners, including forty officers
have been taken.
Violent anti-German outbreaks
are reported from practically
every seaport in Great Britain.

No. 37
Readers of the newspapers and followers of the course of the
war must long ago have become convinced that the situation grows
more and more intense and critical day by day. Great Britain is
faced not alone by outside enemies, but by labor troubles and by
lack of those immense internal resources in the matter of food
production that Germany and Austria-Hungary possess. She
cannot feed herself, and is compelled to rely largely on other
countries* for a supply of the necessaries of life. In such case, the
duty of her children is distinctly plain. It is noteworthy of her
enemies that they are not only thoroughly united but that they are
enduring with what fortitude they possess the rigid military
enforcements that are placed upon them for the conservation both
of food and material. Every man, woman and child, from the
Kaiser down, have been put on rations. The idea is three-fold
to guard against any possible emergencies, to mislead the foe into
over-confidence and by thoroughness to bring such pressure to bear
as will hasten the final decision. Britain is pursuing the same
course. She has not yet found it necessary to place her population
individually on short rations, but she has found it desirable to take
munition factories in order to secure supplies that mean either life
or death to the nation. Meantime, Germany by cowardly submarine assassination is endeavoring to starve her people and cripple her
With such state of affairs existent it is hardly necessary to
explain to stay-at-home Canadians how best they can fulfil their
manifest duty and show the burden-bearers how completely they
possess their sympathy. But the bugle blast has its rallying power
in peace as in war. To all the people, and to farmers, breeders
and settlers in particular, the Patriotism and Production movement
that is in progress is blowing its bugle, or, in other words, carrying
its message. Its object is to arouse all and sundry to the part
they are called on to play. That part of necessity does not mean
harder work nor increased acreage; but it does imply the exercise
of every faculty in attention and vigilance. It does imply in order
to secure increased and improved production, by which alone cultivators of the soil can contribute towards the credit of the country
and empire, the greatest ^care in the selection of seed, in the
breeding of livestock and in economy of the land.

Orders may be left at Noel & Rock's, Hazelton THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, MAY 15, 1915
busy rounding up Germans and
Austrians, who are being sent to
the concentration camp at Vernon.
Rome:���It is reported today
that Austria has conceded all of
Italy's demands, including the
cession of Trente, to Brenner, in
the Tyrol, together with Trieste,
Istria and Pola.
London: ���The Allied troops
continue their advance in the
Gallipoli peninsula. The Turkish
losses are 45,000. Constantinople
hospitals are crowded and wounded are now being sent to Asia
An Athens despatch says the
Turks are making desperate attacks every night, but without
result thus far. They succeeded
in surrounding half a company
of Australians, whom they massacred, although the Australians
fought determinedly.
One thousand notables have
been arrested in Smyrna, on
orders from Constantinople.
Petrograd (official): ��� In the
direction of Olti our troops have
dislodged the Turks from their
position and have driven them
back to the southwest. In their
hurried retreat the Turks abandoned a large quantity of tents
and munitions. In the direction
of Tabriz the Turks have been
driven from the South Pass.
The enemy made a fruitless
attack on the Uzsok Pass, where
our troops on Saturday rushed
the trenches and swept the
enemy from the district. On
Sunday our vanguard crossed the
Dneister and attacked Chaboruki
and took 1,300 prisoners and
many machine guns.
London, May 12 (official):���
Yesterday afternoon the Germans made another attack east
of Ypres, in the neighborhood of
the main road. Although they
subjected the Allies' trenches to
a very heavy bombardment and
made their infantry advance
under cover of poisonous gas,
their attack failed. During this
attack shrapnel from the Allies
inflicted very heavy casualties on
the enemy when they were in
mass formation, literally mowing them down.
Paris, May 12 (official): -North
of Dixmude Belgian troops, who
succeeded in throwing up a
bridge head on the right bank of
Yser, were subjected to violent
attacks by three German battalions last night. The Belgians
repulsed these, inflicting heavy
losses and taking about 50 prisoners. Another Belgian division has gained ground to the
south of Dixmude.
East of Ypres, British troops
have again been attacked with
the aid of asphyxiating gases.
Under the protection of masks
recently put into use, they allowed the fumes to pass over,
and by rifle and machine-gun
fire they annihilated, at the very
point of their guns, the German
column which had advanced in
close formation. The success of
the Allies north of Arras was
sensibly enlarged today. In an
engagement of extreme violence
in front of Loos, they captured,
after a desperate struggle and
despite an intense cannonade,
an important German work and
an entire system of trenches constructed   along  the   road   from
from  Page One)
Loos to Vermelles. Further
south by assault the Allies captured the big blockhouse and the
chapel of Notre Dame de Lor-
ette. This position had been
ardently defended for months by
the Germans, who had turned
it into a veritable fortress. It
was surrounded and invested and
was taken yesterday afternoon
by the allied troops, who have,
without pause, pursued success
in pressing the enemy energetically between the chapel of Notre
Dame de Lorette and Ablain St.
Franco-British forces, operating in the southern part of Gallipoli peninsula, supported by the
guns of the Allied fleet, delivered
a general attack on those positions of the Turks which had
been penetrated the day befor .
Our troops, with conspicuous
spirit and courage, carried at the
point of the bayonet several
lines of trenches on the heights
near Krithnia. This gain has
been consolidated.
Rome:���The Austrian and German consuls in Southern Italy
are leav ing, despatches from the
frontier say. Notwithstanding
'substantial concessions made by
Austria, Italy is expected to issue a proclamation of war.
; Austria has suspended navigation
in the Adriatic. The government withholds details of the
Austrian proposals.
London, May 13:   The British
battleship  Goliath   has been torpedoed    in     the     Dardanelles.
Ilwenty officers and 160 men were
saved, but it is feared 500 have
been lost.     The British submarine F-14 penetrated the Dardanelles and  entered   the Sea  of
I Marmora,  sinking two Turkish
gunboats    and    one   transport.
The land forces are advancing
and now dominate Gallipoli peninsula.
London:���The war office announces the capture of Wind-
hoeck, the capital of German
East Africa, by the British force
under General Botha. Little resistance was offered. The vic-
I tors secured large quantities of
munitions. The town has a
population of 15,000, and is an
important railway center.
Violent anti-Gurman riots occurred yesterday in Johannesburg. Over fifty buildings
owned by Germans were destroyed, with a total loss of over
a million dollars.
Throughout Australia riots also
occur. Workmen refuse to work
with Germans, and a national
strike is threatened.
Paris,   May   13   (official  com-
: munication):    "Fighting to the
north  of Arras continued  with
j extreme violence last night.  The
j enemy, reinforced, delivered sev-
jeral counter-attacks, which, how-
lever,   were  without   result.    In
that   directed   against   Neuville
St. Vaast- the Germans suffered
very heavy losses.    We found in
cemetery  alone  more  than two
hundred  bodies of Germans and
we took about 100 prisoners.     A
second  attack   between Carency
and Ablain was likewise repulsed.
A third  from   the direction of
Ablain was completely checked."
London:���A report  of  Field-
marshal Sir John French, dated
May 12,  says:  "East of Ypres.
last evening, we repulsed another
German attack, south of Menin
road. This was the third costly
failure experienced by the Germans at this place yesterday.
Elsewhere along the front there
is no change in the situation."
Petrograd, May 13 (war office
communication):���"In theShavli
region our troops on Tuesday
continued to press successfully
on the heels of retreating Germans, who have been driven
back from the town of Shavli
southwest. On the left bank of
the Niemen and on tile front of
the Narew there is an almost
general lull.
"On the left bank of the Vistula, south of Sokhatchoff, our
infantry is in command, having
crossed the Bzura on Tuesday
night and captured, after a bayonet fight, a group of German
trenches and took several dozens
of prisoners and an officer. German attempts to attack our reconstruction of troops south of
Skierniewice and Nava were repulsed. In Western Galicia, on
Monday, our troops to the north,
in the direction of Lutowiska,
continued falling back to positions previously chosen, and the
enemy's offensive was checked
by our counter attack.
"In the direction of the Uzsok
Pass and the Stry river, the
Austrian attacks were repulsed,
with great losses to the enemy.
Near Rojanka, the enemy exploded a mine close to our trenches and followed this up with
an attack on our positions in that
vicinity. They succeeded in occupying part of the crater made
by the explosion, but our men in
a furious onslaught dislodged the
Austrians, who fled in disorder,
leaving several hundred dead.
We also captured many prisoners.
"In the region of Javornik, we
completed our success by an energetic offensive. During the
last few days the enemy at this
point has suffered heavy losses,
leaving five thousand dead on the
mountain slope."
London, May 14:���The steamer
Collairna rammed and sunk a
German submarine off the Northumberland coast.
A Dutch trawler was sunk by
a German aeroplane, all the
crew being lost.
The internment of 40,000 Austrians, Germans and Turks began today. All over military
age, with women and children,
are being deported.
Paris, May 13 (official).���The
Belgian army, by a new attack
last night, on the right bank of
the Yser, repulsed the enemy,
who left, in retiring, several
hundred dead.
On the ground north of Arras,
we have obtained some new and
important results.
By   the  capture  of  Carency
I there has fallen into our hands
much war material which it has
not yet been possible to enumerate correctly.    It includes two
[cannon, one howitzer, two mor-
! tars,  a dozen bomb-throwers, a
large number of machine guns,
3000 rifles and a large supply of
shells and cartridges.
In the wood of Hill 165 we
found the bodies of three companies of Germans who had been
annihilated by our artillery.
The successes reported this
morning in the Forest of Lepre-
tre have made us masters of the
last German organization which
had still resisted in that wood.
The entire position is now in our
Liverpool, May 13:���Two hundred Germans in Liverpool have
been attacked by rioters. The
damage to property resulting
from the attacks is estimated at
$200,000. One hundred and fifty
Germans were gathered today
for internment and were removed
under a military escort to Harwich, Northumberland. All public houses in Liverpool and district closed at 6 o'clock last
London, May 14:���A despatch
to the Times, from the Island of
Lemnos, says the coast line of
Gallipoli peninsula is now in the
Allies' possession and that troopships from Egypt and France are
landing reinforcements and guns.
London:���A Reuter despatch
from Petrograd gives the following official statement regarding
Russian   military   operations:
"In the fighting between the
Vistula and the Carpathians
from May 6 to May 9, the Germans planned to break our front
by quick blows directed in the
neighborhood of Krosno by five
divisions of the German army,
after heavy artillery preparations. The Germans gained no
tactical success. Our reserves,
by a flank blow, enabled our
army to rearrange a line of advantage, our positions eliminating all fear of final retreat. Our
army has received strong reinforcements and is ready to exact
heavy revenge. Our falling
back was carried out methodically. The enemy's losses were
J. McPherson, of Babine, returned on Saturday from a visit
to the coast cities. He has received excellent assay retutns
from his claims. Galena from
the Lakefield, on Copper Island,
carried 53 per cent lead and 48
oz. silver.
Charles P. Richardson is here
from Kitselas, with some nice-
looking copper ore from the
Busted Prospector group on Kitselas mountain. Some development work will be done this season, and Mr. Richardson expects
to interest outside capitalists in
this promising property.
