VOL. IV, NO. 28
McBride   Government   Decides
To Go to the Country-
Ellison Resigns
Victoria, Mar. 11:��� On the
conclusion of the session, the
legislative assembly dissolved,
and it was decided to hold a general election on April 10, nominating day to be April 3. It
developed, however, that this
would not allow sufficient time
for the preparation of the lists of
voters for the new districts, and
Premier McBride today announced that the election would
be deferred for that reason. The
date has not been made known.
As a consequence of the criticism directed at his action in
buying cattle from the government's colony farm at prices considerably lower than those paid
for the animals a year earlier,
Hon. Price Ellison has resigned
the portfolio of finance and agriculture. It is reported that Wm.
Manson will take his place. In
the meantime, the attorney-general is acting minister.
The government will probably
ask the country to endorse a loan
of $7,000,000 for the completion
of the P. G. E.
The entertainment to be given
under the auspices of the Athletic Association on St. Patrick's
Day promises to be a greater
Buccess than any hitherto attempted in the district. A splendid program has been arranged,
including a one-act farce entitled
"Aunty," which is described as
a scream. One of the most interesting features of the evening
will be the appearance of Hazelton orchestra, enlarged for this
occasion to nine pieces, which
will assist at the concert and
dance that will follow.
Groundhog Prospects Good
There appears a probability
that something will be done this
summer towards the development
of the Groundhog Mountain field,
says the Province. Engineers
who went in there last summer
were favorably impressed with
the coal occurrences and estimate
that this field if opened up, can
supply the Coast cities and adjacent territory with anthracite
coal of as good quality as tnat
which has made Pennsylvania
one of the richest coal states. A
local anthracite supply would
command an immense marktt
for domestic heating, and the
opening up of the field should
create a market for double the
present coal output of the province.
At the annual general meeting
of the Hazelton Hall Association,
held last Monday evening, J. E.
Kirby, R. S. Sargent and R. J.
Rock were elected trustees and
members of the executive committee. H. H. Little was reelected secretary-treasurer.
London, March 13:-The Allied
fleet will enter the Sea of Marmora in a fortnight, if the land
forces maintain their advance.
The Anglo-French battleships
are now bombarding the last
nine forts protecting the passage.
Seventy mine sweepers are at
work. The bridge from Chanak
Kalessi to Gallipoli, used for the
transportation of supplies and
ammunition, has been destroyed
by gunfire. The forts at Smyrna
are being bombarded. The inhabitants have fled to the interior. Turkish marksmanship has
improved, owing to the accession
of German gunners, but their
ammunition is deteriorating.
Many of their shells fail to explode.
Reuter's Petrograd correspondent sends a semi-official communication issued in the Russian
capital, which says that the bombardment of Ossowetz has weakened somewhat, the Germans
sparing their shells.    "The Ger
man offensive on our positions at
Przasnysz is being conducted
rather feebly. Their artillery
has developed a violent fire, but
the infantry p-efers to entrench
1,500 paces from our lines. German operations are characterized
by extreme prudence. To the
east of Plock, near the village of
Cikanowo, our fire, directed
against an enemy battery, exploded a great quantity of ammunition.
''The admiralty!announces the
loss of the auxiliary cruiser Bay-
ano, engaged in patrol duty. On
Thursday wreckage and bodies
were found, circumstances pointing to the Bayano having been
sunk by an enemy torpedo.
Eight officers and eighteen men
were rescued, but it is feared
the remainder of the crew was

trenches. Three kilometres east
of Armentieres, nine miles north
of Lille, British troops have occupied the village of Epinette.
In a section of Neuve Chapelle
progress of the British army has
been followed up. After repulsing two strong counter attacks
this army took possession of that
part of the German line which
is situated between the hamlet of
Pietre and a hill of the same
name and captured about 400
prisoners, including five officers.
In Champagne, on Thursday
evening, we carried in front of
our right- northeast of Mesnil���
several of the enemy's trenches
and took a number of prisoners,
including officers. On Friday we
made some slight progress in the
the same region. Farther west,
parallel with the Tahure road-
northeast of Souain���we have
occupied several German trenches. At Reich Ackerkopf we repulsed night attacks and advanced two hundred metres (about
600 feet).
At a well-attended general
meeting of the Hazelton Conservative Association, held on
Tuesday evening, R. S. Sargent,
the popular general merchant,
was unanimously endorsed as the
Conservative candidate for Omineca district in the approaching
provincial election.
Mr. Sargent, although he has
barely reached middle age, is
one of the oldest residents of the
district, and is known and respected by all. His company,
R. S. Sargent. Ltd., operates
general stores in Hazelton, Smithers and Telkwa. He has always
displayed a keen interest in the
development of Omineca district,
and it would be hard to find a
! better man for our member.
The date of the   nominating
j convention,   at  which   Mr   Sargent's name will be brought for-
| ward, has not yet been fixed.
Petrograd, March 8 (official
communication):���Our offensive,
movement continues on the left
bank of the Niemen River and in
the district northwest of Grodno.
Our troops drove the Germans
back behind the front of Sopotz-
kin-Lypskov, and then pushed on
vigorously. In a similar manner
in the Mlawa district our attacks
were crowned with success. We
took about five hundred prisoners, including seven officers and
also three machine guns. On
the left bank of the Vistula, in
the region of Pilica, fighting is
assuming the character of a
great battle. In the Carpathians, between the Ondawa und
San rivers, Austrian attacks continue, Southwest of Lutowiskov
the enemy tried to cross to the
right bank of the San, but in a
counter-attack, Saturday night,
the Austrian units, which had
succeeded in crossing the river,
were annihilated.
Paris, March 7 (official communication):���To the north of
Arras at Notre Dame de Lorette,
Germans attempted a counterattack, which did not succeed.
Subsequently they delivered three
counter-attacks, which also failed.
In Champagne, to the north of
Prethes, the Allies have gained
a footing in a very strongly fort-
tified wood and captured prisoners to the north of the same village. "We repulsed a counter
attack on a ridge to the northeast of Le Mesnil. Ground was
gained and we carried another
trench to the north of Beause-
jour. In Vosges, we made progress on the flanks of Reich Ackerkopf and took prisoners at
Hartmans-Weilerkopk. Here we
repulsed five counter- attacks.
Despite vigorous and well-
planned attacks, Germans were
repulsed for the fourth time before a blockhouse in the Le
Pretre wood."
London: Russia has still another battle on her hands. While she
is declared tu be pressing her offensive in north Poland and east
Galicia and holding up Austrians
in the Carpathians, Germans
have launched an attack in the
region of the Pilica River, to the
south of Warsaw, where a big
battle is developing.
Interesting X-ray photographs
taken with the new apparatus at
Hazelton Hospital, are on view
at the Up-to-Date drugstore.
Dr. Badgero, the dentist, is in
town for a week.
London, March 9:���On behalf
of the Russian naval general
staff, the official press bureau tonight made the following statement. "On Sunday, our fleet
bombarded Kutguidiak, Kozlon
and Kilimill (ports on the Black
Sea) destroying all structures
and plants for the shipment of
coal. The bombardment was
followed by a terrific explosion
and fire. Four batteries were
silenced and eight steamers were
destroyed. Our casualties were
three men wounded."

Bengrove was sunk on Sunday,
probably by a torpedo, off Ilfra-

Amsterdam:���The Telegraaf's
Tirlemont, Belgium, correspondent in a despatch confirms the
report of the destruction there,
last Thursday, of Zeppelin airship L-8, which was forced to

No. 28
The agriculturists of British Columbia, and particularly hoset
of the newer districts, are to he congratulated on the successful
outcome of the agitation fin-governmental aid to farmers. The
agricultural aid bill, which has passed the legislature, gives effect
to the recommendations of the agricultural commission, so far as
they deal with loans to farmers. This action, which The Miner
has-long advocated, will greatly encourage the development of the
province, and will undoubtedly hasten the settlement of this and
other new districts.
Provision is made for the constitution of an agricultural
commission for I he administration of loans for agricultural purposes.
This board Khali consist of a superintendent, who shall, ex-oflieio,
be director, ami four other directors,
A h'rst bond issue of $15,01)0,000 for loan purposes has been
provided for.
Lands on which loans may be made are described as follows:
land held by indefeasible title; land held by record or pre-emption;
land held by certificate of purchase on the deferred payment
system under the land act, or land held as homestead pre-emption,
or purchased homestead under any act of the Parliament of Canada;
provided always I hat no loan shall be made upon the security of
unsurveyed land or in case where a prior loan existed.
Loans will be made for the specific purposes of clearing of
land, erection of farm buildings, the purchase of stock, discharging
of liabilities incurred for the improvement and development of land
and for any purpose which in the opinion of the commission will
increase the productiveness of the land.
No loan shall be granted for a sum of less than $250 or for a
greater amount than $10,000 to any one borrower, other than any
association, and loans are to be advanced by instalments. The
rate of interest shall be determined from time to time, and the
basis for fixing the rate shall as nearly as practicable be the
adoption of a rate which shall exceed by not more than one per
cent per annum the rate actually paid by the commission.
Loans are to be of three classes, short dated loans of 3 to 10
years,   long dated loans of 20 to 36J years and single season loans.
The purposes for which loans may be made are thus described:
(a) The acquiring of land for agricultural purposes and the
satisfaction of encumbrances on land used for such purposes.
(bj The clearing of land, draining, dyking, water storage and
irrigation works;
(c) The erection of farm buildings;
(d) The purchase of live and dead stock, machinery and fertilizers;
(e) Discharging liabilities incurred for the improvement and
development of land used for agricultural purposes and any purpose
calculated to increase land productiveness;
(f) And any purpose which in the opinion of the commission
will increase the productiveness of the land in respect of which the
loan is proposed:
(g) Carrying out the objects of any association, subject to
approval by Order-in-Council.
Season is at hand and we find several odds and ends
in Winter Goods, including Gloves, Hosiery, Toques,
etc., which we are willing to sell at special discounts.

New Westminster, March 8: -
George Lewis, a rancher in the
Ootsa Lake country for many
years, has disappeared and the
provincial police have been asked
to investigate. After living for
nine years in the upper country,
Lewis came down to New Westminster last autumn to look for
employment. He walked to this
city with a friend, H. G. Horr.
The two separated on the outskirts of the town, Horr going
on after securing Lewis' promise
to visit him at an early date.
Since that time none of his
friends have seen or heard of
Lewis. He had some money in
his possession at the time.

London, Mar. 11:���A Copenhagen despatch to the Daily

Paris   (Official):���In   Belgium
the town of Nieuport has been

guns.     Between

be better to abandon the submarine warfare.
Paris:���The essential purpose
of operations begun by using the
Champagne region on Feb. 16,
says an official statement, was
to attract to this point of the
front the greatest possible number of German forces and to impose upon them the greatest
consumption of war munitions
and thus prevent transportation
by the enemy of troops to Russia.
This purpose has been completely attained. Germany had in
Champagne on Feb. 16 119 battalions of infantry, 31 squadrons
of cavalry, 64 field batteries,
and 20 heavy batteries. From
Feb. 16 to March 10 they had
brought there over twenty
battalions of infantry, one regiment of field artillery and two
heavy batteries���being equal to
one army corps.

achieved an important success.
It has carried the village of
Nieuve Chapelle to the east of
the road from Estaires to La
Bassee and has progressed to the
northeast of this village in the
direction of Aubers and to the
southeast in the direction of Bois
de Rioz. It has taken a thousand
prisoners, among whom are several officers, and has captured
also some machine guns. The
German losses were very heavy.
In Champagne region the enemy on various occasions on the
night of March 910 and on the
day of the tenth counter-attacked
with great violence, but did not
gain an inch of ground. We
have  confirmed  and   broadened
army. The Turks are dismounting the guns defending Constantinople, their intention being that
in case of "defeat the Allies
should regard Constantinople as
an undefended town."
Amsterdam: ��� Germans are
alarmed by a secret report that a
huge British army is massing
near Champagne and Lorraine
London says it is intended to
keep the Germans from strengthening their forces in Poland.
Geneva:���Italy has refused to

Eighty-five Victims
Hinton, W. Va., March 8:���
Forty-seven miners were rescued
alive from the workings of the
Leyland mines, wrecked by an
explosion on Tuesday. As from

by joyous relatives and friends.
Eighty-five bodies were recovered.

with heavy losses,
bank of the Vistula, in the Pilica
region, the action is alternatively
offensive and defensive. We
captured many prisoners and machine guns. In the Carpathians,
in the region of Baligrod, Austrians continue their offensive
notwithstanding their crushing
losses. Near the village of Stu-
dente the enemy succeeded in
capturing advanced trenches of
two of our battalions. In Uzsok
Munkacs region the enemy's
offensive was barren of results.
After a desperate battle the
enemy on Mar. 7 captured the
greater part of Hill 992, but yesterday morning our counter-attack was crowned with success

from all the trenches they had
captured. To the northwest of
Klausse we took prisoners remnants of an Austrian column,
which our Hank had enveloped."

previously sunk the Blackwood.
The U-20 was rammed by the
British destroyer Ariel, but the

trial. This submarine was built
in 1913, of the 840-ton type, and
had a radius of 2,000 miles.
On the left jour positions on the ridges which
we  seized, inflicting very heavy
losses on our assailants.    On the
heights of the Meuse our artillery
has    completely    demolished   a
number of the enemy's trenches.
Washington: -The report that
the German cruiser  Eitel Fried-
rich sunk  the American   barque
W. P. Frye will be made the subject of a searching equiry.    The
neutrality    board    recommends
that  the  Eitel  Friedrich be allowed to repair, under the supervision of American   naval  officers.        British    cruisers    are
I waiting off the Virginia Capes.
