THE WEEK'S
HAPPENINGS
AT TELKWA
Was Cut Down
By Locomotive
at Lk. Kathlyn
K. L. Rauk returned to Prince
Rupert on Thursday's delayed
train.
District Engineer Carruthers
was in Hazelton for a day or two
this week.
Miss Hazel Cunning-ham and
Misses Margaret and Louise Wattie returned on Monday from
Port Essington.
Louis Knauss, who has heen
under medical treatment at the
Hospital for several days, left on
Thursday for Tramville.
The snow has entirely disappeared in Hazelton and the roads
are practically dry in the town.
As soon as the drying-up process
on the roads outside is finished,
which should be shortly, the
automobiles will come out from
their hibernation.
Stores to Close
at Six p.m. In
Town in Future
Commencing on Monday all
stores in Hazelton will close at
six o'clock in the evening. This
decision was arrived at as the
result of a canvass conducted
during the week among the
storekeepers of the town. This
will be of great benefit to the
clerks, and the hours of 8 a m.
to 6 p. m, are thought to constitute a sufficiently long business
day. All the storekeepers were
in agreement to the scheme, and
will benefit by the saving of light
and fuel, if not during the summer months, throupli the period
of short daylight in the winter.

Francois Lake News
(From Our Telkwa Correspondent)
Ootsa Luke Kelly has just got
throunh a thirteen-day potlateh.
It proved to be one of the greatest gormandizing jags that this
country has seen. The guests
managed to dispose of one steer,
several young pigs, with roast
chicken on the side. All the
natives in the country were there.
Mr. Kelly was eventually forced
to advise his guests to beat a retreat, unless they would content
themselves with eating suckers
out of the lake, as he had nothing left in the house to offer
them. Even the paper off the
wall was gone.
The wagon read about a mile
out for several days this week
presented the unwonted appearance of a miniature Skeena. A
merry flood cascaded noisily down
the grade,endeavoring, with that
inborn pervisity of things inanimate, to keep to the middle of
the road. A battalion of soldiers
could easily intrench in the holes
cut by the torrent. The stream
was finally diverted by a road
gang and the holes filled, Overflow from Hospital Lake caused
the freshet.
Johnson-Scaly
On Tuesday evening, in St.
Peter's Church, the marriage
took place of two long-time residents of this locality, in the persons of George Theodore Johnson, rancher, and Miss Mary
Helena Sealy, sister of J. C. K.
Sealy, of this town.
The groom, who is well known
hereabouts, is a progressive farmer, and has been in this district
a numberof years, while the bride
who is equally well known, has
lived in this town for several
years. Rev. Jno. Field perform-
the ceremony. The happy couple
lefton Wednesdayfor the groom's
ranch down-river.
the inquest showed that deceased
had been drinking heavily for
some time previous to his death,
and had been under the care of
the doctor. Smith, who was a
despatcher in the G.T.P. office at
Smithers, had acted peculiarly on
the evening of his death, and on
that Saturday night had left the
dispatcher's office at 11:50, according to the evidence, and at
1:10 a.m. on Sunday morning was
killed at a point three and a half
miles west of Smithers hy Locomotive 79.

Several flour mills in the U.S.
have been closed down for violations of the government restrictions on the wheaten product.
Since the beginning of the war
the number of Canadians who
have enlisted for military and
naval service is 537,126, or one
in fifteen of the population.
Canada's fire loss in Match
was $1,682,286, compared with
$2,243,762 in February.
One was killed and thirty were
injured when a St. Louis-San
Francisco train plunged through
a bridge near Goodlands, Ok la.,
on Friday.
A German editor estimates that
Germany's national debt after
the war will be 150,000,000,000
marks, thirty times that before
the war.

The brilliant defence of Field

KING SENDS HOPEFUL
MESSAGE  TO UNITED
STATES FIRST CITIZEN
On the occasion of the first anniversary of America's entrance
into the war (last Saturday) the
following message was sent to
President Wilson by King George:
"The gallant deeds of Americans on land and see have already
indicated to the enemy that his
hope is vain. Every day that
passes, as American troops pour
in ever-increasing numbers into
France, diminishes the chances
of his success.
"The American people may
rest assured that the British Empire, now tried by nearly four
yen's of war, will cheerfully
make yet greater sacrifices. The
thought that the United States,
under youi leadership, and with
us  heart  and soul emboldens us

time and make a living near to
nature's heart. It is good for
them to get a change, but it is
noticeable that in the great majority of cases they are glad to
return, and so re-invigorated and
refreshed and strengthened for
taking up their old vocations,
whatever they may be. And
again, a change often shows us
that there are worse things than
our old work.���Ex.

Berlin papers disclose the wrath
of the war loids at the action of
the Allies in taking over Dutch
shipping in Allied ports. Their
protest is an indication of how
useful the ships will be to the
Allies, and therefore a complete
justification  of the action.���Ex.
Most copper producers are interested in the after-the-war outlook, says the Boston Commercial. Until a few months ago it
was almost a unanimous opinion
that a period of readjustment
would follow the re-establishment
of peace and that prices of all
commodities, including copper,
would suffer a great decline.
Recently opinion in this respect
has been undergoing a change.
Those who have made a study of
the pre-war statistics of production and consumption are pretty
well convinced that the price of
copper will average considerably
higher after the war than it did
before. Some authorities believe
that after price fixing is removed
copper will bo likely to command
somewhere between 25 and 30
cents a pound.
Since the outbreak of the war
the central powers have had less
than 25 per cent of the tonnage
of new copper than they had
been consuming previously. In
the same period the consumption
of Great Britain and France has
increased 150 to 200 per cent. It
must follow, therefore, that the
end of the war will find the great
industrial area of Europe stripped
bare of copper and that the numberless manufacturers there will
come into the market for an immense tonnage.
The total British ships sunk of
over 1600 tons last <\ eek was only
four.
The amiable Hun is now engaged in trying to starve Denmark,
Holland,Sweden and Norway into
a position of dependance on Germany for food supplies by an unrestricted sub ..arine campaign
against vessels carrying foodstuffs
from other parts of the world to
these neutral countries. Having
acquired control of the vast agricultural resources of Russia, the
German authorities probably calculate on being able to meet the
requirements of these countries
���at rates satisfactory to themselves���provided the neutrals can
be cut off from communication
with the Allies and thus made
utterly dependent upon Germany
for food supplies. The Russian
disaster strengthens Germany not
only in the military sense, perhaps not even chiefly in the military sense, but also by the control
the war lord has acquired over
an enormous area of productive
country inhabited by an industrious population utterly incapable
of resistance. That this advantage will be used to the utmost
is to be supposed. Russia's productive powers will be mobilized
under German auspices and utilized to the full in the interests of
its new masters.���Ex.

man (name on request) reports
an average of 33 miles per gallon for 20,000 miles. Surely
this is a record that few, if
any other makes of cars, ever
equalled.
It demonstrates the economy
