Monday's Events
At New Hazelton
An elaborate program has been
prepared for the Victoria Day
celebration at New Hazelton on
Monday, and large crowds are
expected to come from east and
west to enjoy the sports and entertainments. It being impossible to arrange for a special
train from Prince Rupert, the
coast ball team cancelled its engagement, but an exhibition game
between Smithers and New Hazelton has been arranged as the
main event. In addition, there
will he a long list of sports, with
a drilling contest for handsome
prizes as one of the chief features. A concert and dance in
the evening will provide a fitting
conclusion to the celebration.
PRELIMINARY CANTER
FOR DRILLING TEAMS
A drilling contest, in preparation for the competition at New
Hazelton on Victoria Day, was
held last evening at the Hazelton
Hotel. A large block of granite
was set for the event, and two
teams competed for twenty dollars, presented by R. G. Moseley.
W. J. Sweeney and Arthur Lindquist drilled 21 916 inches in ten
minutes, a very creditable performance in the circumstances,
while Chas. Frederickson and
Magnus Johnson made 18i inches,
being badly handicapped by broken drills. A large crowd watched the contest and cheered the
two teams.

The ball game between the
Tigers and the Cubs, which was
the occasion for much discussion,
proved to be one of the most exciting matches in the athletic
history of Hazelton. Graham
Rock and Stone, of the regulars,
were in the points for the Cubs,
and many expected their team
to win. After a hard-fought
game, which extended to thirteen
innings, the Tigers won out by a
series of lucky hits.
The Cubs had much the best
of the play until the ninth, when,
with the score six to three, the
Tigers made three runs, for
which hits and errors were equally responsible. There was no
further scoring until the thirteenth, when the regulars managed to secure a com fortable lead
of five runs, while the Cubs only
managed one in their half.
In his work for the Cubs,
Graham Rock again demonstrated his all-round ability. He
i.'harged three strikes against
22 men, and had two put outs
und five assists to his credit. At
bat six times, he made two singles and two two-base hits, walking once.
For the regulars, Sinclair pitched a consistently good game,
striking out thirteen batters, and
with good support in the field,
uroke up several batting rallies
by the dangerous hitters of the
opposition.
The final score was 11-7.

quantity of supplies of wire and
telegraph tools were left at the
end of the line, but all other supplies of clothing and food were
taken out two years subsequently by those who had been left in
charge.
The constructed line beyond
Quesnel soon disappeared, the
poles gradually 'falling to the
ground under stress of wind and
weather, but from Quesnel south
the line was maintained and some
small extensions made to it and
eventually forming part of the
system now in use. In the north
the large amount of wire which j
was left behind by Collins' Com-|
pany was made use of by the
northern Indians for making
traps, sleds and even bridges,
the best example of the last
being the bridge at Haguelget.

constructed portion of the line in

One of the most important measures before the Dominion
House is the new Naturalization Bill. This act, which is uniform
with a bill already introduced in the British Parliament, provides
for an imperial naturalization. But is does more, it repeals our
present Canadian naturalization law. The new law, which is infinitely more rigid that the old one, means the end of the wholesale naturalization of foreigners which has been such a scandal in
Western Canadian elections. The present law requires only three
years' residence to become naturalized. The new law will require
five years'residence in some part of the British Empire and the
final year in Canada, In addition, there is a certain educational
test. Hundreds of foreigners have been naturalized in the past
who did not know a word of English. The new law will require
and adequate knowledge of either French or English.
In  the past Canadian  naturalization  was not recognized in : being somewhat in the same pro-

WAS HALF ACENTUIY AGH
An Associated Press despatch
states that "fifty years ago this
summer interest in the great
project of connecting the American and European continents by
land telegraph was at its height
and consummation of the undertaking was regarded as practically
assured. The plan was to connect New York and London by
way of the Bering Strait."
This great overland telegraph
scheme had its origin in the failures attendant on the attempts
to lay working cables between
England and America, writes Dr.
W. W. Walkem. This great cable scheme was the life object of
Cyrus W. Field. The first attempt was made in 1857, but the
cable broke when only three

STYLE
_TJf mailer not generally
/��!, known or fully appreciated with regard to commercial printing is the faCl that
style, display (by which is
meant typographical arrangement) and type-faces are subject to change, as in the case
of clothing and other fashions.

neat and plain in display with a
liberal use of margin, as opposed to the old-slyle methods of
coarse, overcrowded and over-
ornamental composilion. Not
every printer can give you the

therefore, to your interest lo see
that your printing is done at
