 THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER OF NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA    ~|
mer
VOL. V, NO. 11
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1915
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
RUMORED CHANGES IN
PROVINCIAL CABINET
Victoria, Nov. 8:���The Times,
a Liberal organ, says Premier
McBride is about to retire, to
take the position of agent-general
in Great Britain, from which
Hon.J.H.Turner will soon resign.
Rumor foretells the resignation
from the cabinet of Dr. Young,
provincial secretary, and Hon.
Thomas Taylor, minister of works
and railways. The present and
prospective vacancies, it is said,
will be filled by the appointment
of A.C.Flumerfelt as minister of
finance and agriculture and the
inclusion in the cabinet of C. E.
Tisdall of Vancouver and Lome
Campbell of Rossland.
The Prohibition Problem
Victoria, Nov. 9:���Replying to
the prohibition leaders Sir Richard McBride states that he does
not favor the Alberta act as a
basis of reference, direct legislation being un-British in spirit.
He thinks the people should vote
on the question, leaving the preparation of a bil I to the legislature.
The submission of a measure to
the people would restrict the
choice to one method, whereas
there may be other effective
methods of dealing with the
matter if prohibition carries.
In order that as full a vote as
possible may be polled, the premier believes the plebiscite should
be taken at the same time as the
next general election. This would
effect a saving to the province of
$40,000 to $50,000.
BULGAR ARMY MAY BE CAUGHT
ALLIES ESTABLISH LINE IN SERVIA-
CONTINUED SUCCESS OF CZAR'S ARMY
Writes From the Trenches
In an interesting letter from
the trenches, James Turnbull, of
the forest service, who is a lance
corporal in the Princess Pats,
says that noted battalion has been
moved south from Armentieres.
He does not know what part of
the line it is on, but it is holding
"the tip of an infernally big salient, "and defending a line which
would give the enemy command
of all the valley below.
"The boom and crash of high
explosives goes on incessantly,
day and night, "says Jim, "Away
down underneath the ground you
can hear the tap, tap of Germans
who are mining with the amiable
intention of blowing us up."
Although under fire with the
Pats for eight months, the writer
says the three weeks he had just
put in was the hottest time of
the war.
He concludes his letter to
Forester Allen by saying, "Give
my regards to the little old burg
and everyone in it."
Methodist Church
Rev. W. M. Scott will preach
tomorrow evening on the subject:
"St. Peter the Apostle."
A mixed quartet will sing. All
are invited to attend.
Athens: The Allies have now
joined their lines, the British in
the southeast, the French in the
center and the Servians in the
northwest, along a 90-mile front
in southern Servia. Skirmishing
is in progress, preliminary to a
great battle.
If the Bulgarian line can be
pierced, the Allies can combine
with the main Servian army to
resist the passage of the main
Teutonic army across Servia. The
entire Bulgarian force is endangered by the new operations.
Saloniki: The entire Bulgarian
force operating west of Vardar
has been endangered by simultaneous offensives undertaken by
Servian and French troops, according to advices from the front
received here.
The Serbs have taken the offensive in the Supagora district
and are reported to have defeated the Bulgars at Katchenak
Pass, inflicting such heavy losses
that the invaders were demoralized. Two French cavalry raids
are said to have cleared the
ground between Krivolak and
Veles. British and French reinforcements are arriving at
Saloniki in force and are being
sent immediately to Servia.
Paris: The Servian legation in
Paris today made public the
following comnrtunication from
the Servian government, dated
Nov. 10.
"The Servian troops have occupied, in good order, defenses
to the south and east of Krailevo
and east .jf Ivagnitza and also
east of the left bank of Moravo
river and southward, where there
was desperate fighting throughout Nov. 10. Engagements continue east of Ghilan, upon the
Leskovitza and Binatchka rivers
and at Katchanik."
The official communication, the
first received since last Monday,
shows that the Servians on the
10th had not been cutoff between
Krailevo and Nish, as newspaper
despatches said there were
grounds to believe..
Petrograd: Further advances
for the Russians against the
Germans in northwest Russia are
recorded. Kemmern and Anting, to the west of Riga, have
been captured by the Muscovites
and in the same district advances
have been made by them to the
west of the town of Raggatz.
Heavy losses were suffered by
the  Germans   in   the   fighting
around Kemmern, as likewise
was the case in the district of
Ikskull, where ten German attacks were repulsed. "Heaps of
German dead," says the official
statement, "are lying in front of
our trenches."
Paris: Snrvivorsof the Ancona
state that the submarine which
sunk the steamer kept up its
cannonade while the passengers
were embarking in the boats and
afterwards chased the boats,
capsizing some.
Providence, R.I.: Dr. Joseph
Goricar, for fifteen years an
official of the Austrian consulate,
has resigned. He states that the
United States is honeycombed
with Austro - German intrigue,
spies under Von Bernstorff and
Consul-Genera! von Nuber being
engaged in a nation-wide program tocreate strikes and foment
violence. Over $30,000,000 has
been spent. He names prominent officials in leading American
cities. President Wilson has
ordered an investigation.
London : Winston Churchill
has resigned from the cabinet to
go to the front.

cause.
AMERICAN NOTE SAYS
BLOCKADE IS ILLEGAL
Washington, Nov. 8:���Publication today of the American note
to Great Britain denouncing as
"ineffective, illegal and indefensible" the blockade against Germany and Austria, gives notice
to citizens of the United States
whose legitimate foreign trade is
interfered with by the Allies that
they should seek redress directly
through the diplomatic channels
of their own government rather
than through prize courts.
Thirty-five points are treated
in the note, and, in conclusion,
Secretary Lansing declares that
the United States "can not with
complacence suffer further subordination of its rights and interests to the plea that the exceptional geographical position of the
enemies of Great Britain require
or justify oppressive and illegal
practices."
The note says the government
"feels that it can not reasonably
be expected to advise its citizens
to seek redress before tribunals
which are, in its opinion, unauthorized by the unrestricted application of international law, to
grant reparation, nor to refrain
from presenting their claim to
Great Britain through diplomatic
channels."
Since the United States does
not recognize the existence of a
legal blockade, Americans may
look to their government for
protection in the shipment of
non-contraband cargoes, not only
to neutral countries contiguous
to belligerents, but directly to or
from the enemies of the Allies.
London, Nov. 8:���The Manchester Guardian says that "although we shall be unable to
concede its contentions," much
will depend on the manner in
which the American note is
treated.
The Times say's it imagines
that American jurists and diplomatists will feel that the note is
not altogether worthy the better
traditions of the republic, since
it raises a number of technical
points of disputed international
law, but nowhere rises the broad
view of the larger issues involved
in the world war or indicates
the statesman's ability to adapt
old principles to novel conditions.
The Gazette says the British
Government has shown a desire
t o reduce inconvenience t o
neutral trade to a minimum,
but it is notorious that the methods of concealment which it
declares have been adopted by
American shippers, exhibit a
variety and ingenuity demanding
the most thorough counter-check. THE OMINECA MINER, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1915

Seventy cents per capita of population, men, women and
children, was Canada's contribution towards the support of soldiers'
families during the first year of the war. While this was more than
sufficient for the requirements of that period, it falls considerably
short of the contribution that will be required during the next 12
months. The total estimated requirements for that period will be
$7,500,000, or about $1,00 per head of population.
This amount should be easily raised once the prime importance
of the Patriotic Fund is realized.     Soldiers are essential to British  >g
victory.     Soldiers are only obtainable if decent provision is made
for their families.     The public, through the Patriotic Fund, must
make that provision.
The following tables show the contributions by provinces during
the first year and the estimated requirements by provinces during
the second year.

Say $1.00 per head.
The expenses of administration are interesting as showing what
can be done by effective organization and business management.
The Fund has not merely to spend its money. Much of its energy
is devoted toward safeguarding itself against the greedy and the
unscrupulous. But for the thorough work of the head office and
Branches many thousands of dollars would have been given to
persons not entitled to assistance. To get fhrough the first year of
its existence, therefore, on a combined expenuinre of $70,000 is a
feat to be proud of. By far the greater part of this amount was
covered by the bank interest earned on deposits, so that the actual
impairment of the Fund only amounted to 65 cents for every $100
of expenditure.

West Will Benefit
However the rest of the world
must suffer from the economic
conditions after the war, most
people seem to think that the
cessation of hostilities will mean
a great boom in industries for
the West.   At present, as we all
hostilities will see thousands of
people going "back to the land,"
which will mean real estate
values enhanced, and agriculture
on a firmer, better-paying basis.
It will also mean the settling of
the new districts along the lines
of recently opened railways.    In
know, the lumber trade is badly .short,  this western country will
handicapped, but the end of the
war will see, with the release of
ships and the lessened cost of
charters, and the enormous demand for lumber, prosperity all
along the coast. Experts agree
also that there will be a greatly
increased demand for metals,
copper particulary, owing to the
enormous wastage by the war.
As a result of the war also, the
livestock industry will be more
profitable than ever. It is very
likely that the termination  of
hold out to the war-wearied
soldiers the greatest inducements
of any in the world, and we shall
see an influx of the highest type
of citizens, who will help us to
develop the natural resources of
the country, and to set up the
highest possible moral and political standards.���Ex.

It is stated that no less 360,000
Jews were fighti g for Russsia

many of them are now in the
ranks is not known. The Jews
have established their right to
be considered when the time
comes to arrange terms of peace.
Palestine ought not to be left to j
the Turk, and a Jewish kingdom
would, as has been said, prove a
connecting link between the
Occident and the Orient. It is
exceedingly improbable that all
the Jews in the world or any
very considerable proportion of
them would return to the land of
their fathers, but a Jewish center, which would be strong in
wealth, education and progress,
would be an excellent thing for
the world.���Ex.

Serbs Retain Strength
Berlin: The Germans have
discovered that the Servian army
has withdrawn intact into mountain fastnesses, where colossal
supplies of cannon and munitions

Constantinople route when it
