SPLIT IN THE RUSSIAN CABINET

"HOW SHALL WE PUNISH KORNILOFF?

Threaten to Strike
San Francisco, Sept. 15:���A
strike is threatening, involving
25 unions and affecting about
24,000 men, who may walk out
on Monday. Much government
work is involved.
London : What punishment
shall be meted out to Korniloff
has caused a split in the Russian
cabinet today. Four ministers
have left the cabinet. The personal surrender of the revolting
army chief is imminent. His
troops have melted away to a
mere handful.
There is a widespread public
demand that those responsible
for the counter-revolution be
dealt with severely.
General Grimoff, who commanded Korniloff's rebellious
troops and who ordered the surrender when all hope was lost,
attempted suicide today by shooting himself, but his wound is not
fatal.
London: British airplanes on
Wednesday and Thursday made
another raid on German military
establishments in Belgium. A
large quantity of bombs was
dropped.
An Exchange despatch says
that Germany's reply to the
Pope's peace note has been sent,
and contains proposals for a lasting peace. It is friendly in tone
and thanks the Pope for his
effort.
Paris: Fighting has been resumed on the Meuse. The usual
artillery activity continues in the
Verdun region. Prisoners were
taken west of Navarin farm.
The Germans are using troops in
shock formation. The French
retain their positions on the
Casemates plateau after hand-to-
hand fighting.
Painleve has retained six of
colleagues in the new French
cabinet. Thomas and Viviani
are the most noted men dropped.
The minister of missions abroad,
Franklin Bouillon, will be added
to the cabinet.
duced by the U.S. and Britain is
promising.
Lord Reading, the British
financial commissioner, is here.
He will not negotiate for private
loans, but has come to assist in
the solution of larger financial
problems.
Berlin: German "shoe k"
troops yesterday penetrated as
far as the second line west of
Guignicourt, on the Aisne front,
inflicting heavy losses on the
defenders. In Flanders the artillery battle increased to drumfire, but no English attack developed.
Washington: The submarine
situation is now well in hand.
The Allied defences have more
than kept pace with the U-boats.
An   anti-submarine device pro-
OTTAWA: Rumor gives November 19 as the election date.
Seven weeks is the time expected
will be needed to prepare the
new voters' lists.
Montevideo: Uruguayan marines today boarded all German
ships in the harbor here, on the
receipt by the government of
information that it was planned
to sink the vessels.
Buenos Aires : Argentine's
annoyance amazes Count Lux-
burg. The German minister who
advised the sinking of ships is
surprised at his erstwhile friends'
recent action.
Chicago: Russia is still a factor in the war. The disorder
there is no greater than in the
U. S., says Root. Her troops
are holding the Germans firmly
on the eastern front.
Express Their Thanks
The ladies of Hazelton extend
their thanks to Mrs. Morkill,
Mrs. Chappell, Dr. McKie and
the other artistes for their valuable and voluntary help at the
Soldiers' Aid concert last evening. Also many thanks are
offered to those who helped to
make the affair a success by
their presence and by their gifts
of refreshments.
HAZELTON HAS NO
SIDEWALK TROUBLES
Visited District
Among the visitors in this district during the week was W. D.
Wilson, M.L.A. for Rossland, who
made a short tour round about
and then proceeded east to join
the government party in its inspection of the Francois Lake
and adjoining region.
Methodist Church
Rev. Dr. White will preach at
the Methodist Church tomorrow
evening.
Special Music.
All are cordially invited*
The swelling sound of the impact of hammer on nail and the
rasp of the saw proclaimed to the
citizens of Hazelton for several
days past that their sidewalks
were being reconstructed. The
big team of Ruddy & MacKay's
was kept busy hauling lumber
from the government yard, and
each citizen has helped in the
good work.
While a little more remains to
be done the stretches of boardwalk already down have assured
the people of 100 per cent safety
in traversing our streets. The
citizens may now discard that
rolling gait so suggestive of the
sea which has hitherto been necessary to the successful navigation of our sidewalks. iNo more
shall we lightly leap from bqard
to board, with a skill born of
long practice, in evading the
deadly, yawning pitfalls which
lay waiting with  disconcerting
frequency for the daring pedestrian.
The material results of the
rebuilding of the walks will be
of inestimable value to the town.
Nothing condemns a town so
quickly to the outsider than bad
streets or sidewalks. Hazelton
has always had good streets; now
she has good sidewalks.
J. F. Maguire ably undertook
the general supervision of the
reconstruction, and the thanks of
the citizens are due to him for
his untiring activities.
Thanks are also due to Ruddy
& MacKay for the loan of their
team for the hauling of the lumber.
London: No news from the
British west front.
In the region of Bixschoote, on
the Belgian front, there was a
violent artillery bombardment
last night.
M. Painleve has been successful in his second attempt to form
a cabinet.
"One of the best ever staged in
Hazelton", describes the general
opinion of the big Soldiers' Aid
concert and dance held last evening in Assembly Hall.
The program- was of a high
degree of excellence, and was
augmented considerably by the
gratuitous appearance of Mrs.
D. B. Morkill, the talented contralto of Vancouver, who is at
present visiting her husband in
Hazelton, and the splendid violin
renditions of Dr. McKie, A.R.A.
Commencing at a little before
nine o'clock, the proceedings
went smoothly along, and an
extremely appreciative audience
lengthened the program greatly
by demanding encores from each
artiste, whose offerings are deserving of the highest praise.
Supper was served immediately following the concert, and
the receipts of the evening were
swelled by the sale of ice cream.
Dancing was indulged in after
supper and was kept up until the
early hours.
Great credit is due to the ladies
responsible for the affair, and
their labors of the past few
weeks were crowned with success
commeasurate with the great
amount of hard work entailed in
preparation for the event.
The Soldiers' Aid will benefit
highly by the proceeds of the
evening's entertainment.

No. 3
Sir Thomas White is taking active steps to increase the large
credits which the Dominion finance department has already
established for the Imperial treasury to be availed of for the
purchase of munitions, cheese, bacon and other Canadian food
products.
Exchange conditions between Great Britain and America are
now such that Great Britain's capacity to purchase munitions and
our manufactured food products is measured by the amount of
money which can be loaned the Imperial treasury by Canada for
this purpose.
The question concerns not only the pressing need of Great
Britain for these products, but the commercial and industrial
welfare of Canada, which has been the great export market for
fur, bacon and other foods. The trade in these commodities has
been built up only after years of untiring effort and the expenditure
of much private and public money. The prosperity of our
agricultural interests, particularly the live stock and dairying
industries, are immediately involved, as our cheese and meat
products have practically no export market save Great Britain.
At present the Dominion territory is furnishing over twenty-
five million dollars per month to the Imperial treasury to pay for
munitions, ships, rolling stock and other material under order in
Canada.and in addition will supply during July, August, September
and October fifty million dollars for the purchase of cheese and
other products purchased for the war office by the department of
agriculture.
Up to date the Dominion treasury has, since the outbreak of
the war, financed the Imperial treasury in cash and securities to a
total amount of $450,000,000. On the other hand the Imperial
treasury has financed Canada, in connection with the maintenance
of overseas forces in Great Britain and on the Continent to a total
of about $250,000,000.
The question of establishing further credits to enable Great
Britain to purchase more Canadian foodstuffs is now engaging the
attention of the minister. It is undoubtedly the most important
question in Canada today. The minister is now about to organize
for the next of these issues, which is to be made in November. A
nation-wide effort will be put forth to obtain 150,000 or more
subscribers. The minister is asking a committee of the Canadian
Press Association to act and co-operate with him in developing
the publicity campaign. This will start next month. The success
of the loan will assure credits from which Canada's food products
and munitions output can be financed, and the present prosperity
of the Dominion maintained.
Trouble in Portugal
Madrid: Portugal has been
declared in a state of siege. All
establishments in Lisbon, the

HONEST JOHN
IS SATISFIED
Prince Rupert, Sept. 10:���Hon.
John Oliver, who arrived here
last night, in company with Mr.
A. M. Manson, member for Omineca, and Mr. Barrow of Chilli-
wack, declared himself as delighted with what he had seen
and the prospects in the district
through which he had passed.
There was abundant evidence,
he said, of the fertility of the
soil, probably the best west of
Rockies, and of its adaptability
for the raising of small vegetables. He considered that
prompt measures were necessary
for the development of the district, and expressed the opinion
that for years mixed farming
would be followed. There was,
however, a shortage of cattle.
While he was not on the lookout
for minerals, he saw some fine
samples.     The  minister  spoke
highly of the courtesy of the
G. T. P. in providing a special
train for the party, which enabled
them to give a closer study to
the localities through which they
passed.
Mr. Manson said he believed
that the members of the party
were satisfied with what they
had seen, and he expressed the
opinion that legislation would be
brought in at the next session of
the House dealing with the land
problem in central British Columbia.
Buenos Aires: Rioting which
began yesterday in an anti-Ger-
m a n demonstration continued
last night. Every German business house and restaurant in the
downtown business section was
wrecked. The German club and
other buildings were seriously
damaged by fire.

THE MINER WAR BULLETINS
MONDAY, SEPT. 10
Paris: French forces have
resumed the offensive in the
Verdun sector on a front of 20
miles.
Stockholm: It is reported that
German naval forces of considerable strength have been observed
in the southern Baltic, taking a
northerly course. The leading
squadron consists of submarines
and torpedo-boats, with cruisers
following, and is believed to be
the German Baltic fleet reinforced
by part of the high seas fleet.
Great naval attacks on Russian
Baltic coast towns are expected.
Petrograd: An encouraging
feature of the Riga situation is
the seeming firmness of the Russian resistance. The German
pursuit appears to be slowing up
nnd in military circles it is not
anticipated that the enemy will
risk further penetration while
Dvinsk remains unconquered.
According to information, the
spirit of the troops in the Dvinsk
sector is much more favorable
than on other fronts.
Washington: Sweden has been
acting as a medium for transferring German messages from the
German charge d'affaires at Argentina via Stockholm to Berlin.
The United States government
will likely break off negotiations
with Sweden and Argentina will
likely go into the war directly
against the Huns. Washington
has issued a statement showing
that ship movements were disclosed in this manner.
Montreal: An order has been
issued from Ottawa ordering the
demobilization of all units of the
home defence force. These units
will be allowed to transfer into
the Canadian overseas forces,
otherwise they will be liable to
conscription.
Ottawa: Premier Borden may
retire from public life at an early
date, it is expected. There is
strong opposition to the franchise
bills and a strenuous fight will
be waged against government
discrimination in the extension
of the vote.
New York: Great Britain has
advised the U.S. that Wilson's
reply to the Pope's peace proposals is in effect Great Britain's
reply.
"imrvrvvrrrr It
officials who catered to German
interests must be summarily
dismissed. The revelations of
Saturday may bring a political
crisis in Sweden. The Allies
look upon Sweden as officially
inclined to Germany.
Udine: The fight against the
heights northeast of Gorizia continues night and day through
good and bad- weather. Bad
weather is interfering with operations on the Isonzo front,
where violent storms have transformed the streams into torrents
and torrents hito rivers and the
plains into lakes of mud.
Berlin: The German advanced
forces northwest of Lake Malik,
on the Macedonian front,retreated before superior French pressure. The Teutons retired in the
direction of the heights southwest of Ochrida.
Buenos Aires: The Swedish
minister to Argentine, Baron
Lowen, denies that despatches in
cipher have been sent to Berlin
through the Swedish legation.
Washington: Italian airplanes
bombarded Pola on Sunday,sinking one Austrian submarine and
one steamer. Fierce fighting is
taking place east of Gorizia. It
is estimated that the Austrian
losses from August 18 to Sept. 1
were 132,000, and included many
Germans and Turks.
Amsterdam: Der Telegraff
attaches great importance to the
heavy movements of German
troops across Belgium, declaring
a great counter-offensive is being
prepared, as it is absolutely essential to check the British advance into Belgium, which has
for its object the capture of the
coast line and the destruction of
the submarine base at Zeebrugge
and elsewhere.

WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 12
TUESDAY, SEPT. II
Petrograd: Petrograd is in a
state of war. Korniloff demanded a dictatorship and was replied
by Kerensky, who ordered the
commander-in-chief to resign,
and appointed General Klembov-
sky as his successor. The crisis
is the most grave since the revolution.
The Cossack general wanted
supreme power, both civil and
military, and would later name a
government to suit his pleasure.
London: The British succeeded in consolidating and tightening their hold on positions southeast of Hargicourt last night.
Northeast of Monchy-le-Preux
and north of Langemarck the
British took a few prisoners in
patrol encounters.
Sweden must explain her actions, otherwise the disclosures
of the Argentina intrigue ���will
involve the nation in war.     The
Petrograd: Korniloff hasorder-
ed his troops to detrain at the
railroad station at Duo and march
on and besiege Petrograd. The
government infantry are moving
out of the capital to oppose the
forces of Korniloff.
General Nikoe, Russian commander on the southwest front,
will support Korniloff. General
Stcherbatch, commander on the
Roumanian front, has Ordered
his armies and also the Odessa
military district to take no part
in the conflict, remaining true to
the provisional government.
The government made repeated efforts to induce General
Alexieff, the former commander-
in-chief, to take-command against
Korniloff,   but met with refusal.
London: The Times says the
outlook in Russia is dark and
affects the war on every front.
It declares that Korniloff is not a
traitor, who evidently felt there
was no alternative but to declare
himself dictator. Chaos and
confusion are likely to be more
confounded.
It is rumored that Kerensky
has been killed by members of
the Bolshevikh
Russia's message received here
signed by the Russian premier,
states that the entire Baltic fleet
together with its staff officers
has unanimously placed itself on
the side of the provisional government.
Local fighting  around Hargi
court and hostile artillery  fire
around Ypres is reported today.
Paris: French raiding parties
penetrated the German lines
southeast of Vauxallon and north
of Casque. In the Champagne
German supplies were destroyed
and a number of prisoners taken.
Washington: Sweden seeks an
explanation from Germany, and
will probe into the circumstances
attending the making of catspaw
of her representative in Argentine. The Allies will not act,
but will leave the world to judge.
Two vessels were sunk and
one German submarine in a
battle between a fleet of American steamers and their convoy
and six German U-boats off the
French coast.
THURSDAY, SEPT. 13
Petrograd: Kerensky has assumed the position of chief of the
Russian armies, and will retain
that position at least until the
counter-revolution is crushed.
Generals Denikine and Valu-
yeff, -commanders on the southwest and western fronts respectively, have joined Korniloff.
The provisional government today declared that a state of war
exists in the town and district of
Moscow.
In a manifesto Korniloff declares that the government is
working with the Huns, and that
his action was only prompted by
fear of impending ruin. He
seeks nothing but the salvation
of the Russian people and would
not betray his country into German slavery.
Korniloff's drive towards Petrograd continues, and is now
within thirty miles of the city.
Major-General Bruyovitch has
been appointed commander of
the Russian army in succession
to Korniloff.
London: A German assault
east of Hargicourt wss checked
by the British. We made successful raids near Bullecourt, the
enemy suffering heavily.
M. Lesdeurquehart, the most
prominent mining and oil engineer in Russia, just arrived here,
says military dictatorship is necessary to save Russia. He is
confident the country will pull
through. Korniloff, he says, is
a man of action and Kerensky an
honest, visionary. No separate
pe.ice is feared.
[3 u en or Aires:   The Argentine
government has sent to the German embassy passports to be
delivered lo Count Luxburg, the
German charge d'affaires i n
liuenos Aires. The Argentine
foreign office has sent a communication to the German foreign
minister demanding explanation
of Luxburg's action in sending
code messages to Berlin through
the Swedish legation.
Washington: The state department is not satisfied with the
'Swedish announcement that she
will not let the Argentine incident occur again. The recall of
Lowen should be demanded by
Argentine.
Ottawa: Canadian casualties
from Aug. 16 to 21, covering the
heavy fighting in and around
Lens, were 7,586. the total of
recruits enrolled during that
period was about 800, according
to a statement by the minister of
militia.
FRIDAY, SEPT. 14
Petrograd: M. Skobeloff, the
Russian minister of labor, has
announced through the Russian
official news agency that Korniloff's adventure has collapsed,
and the army at his headquarters
has surrendered.
Korniloff has expressed his
willingness to surrender on certain terms, but the government
demands his unconditional surrender. Numerous delegations
from Korniloff's army arriving
at staff headquarters are in a
penitent mood. Revolting officers
may suffer death. No fighting
is reported. Korniloff has been
declared a rebel and traitor.
Negotiations are possible.
The Russians are fighting desperately and successfully against
the Germans on the north front,
despite the civil war between
Kerensky and Korniloff.
Berlin: Under strong Russian
pressure German cavalry on the
Riga-Wendon road were forced
to withdraw from Moritzeberg
and Neukaipen.
Udine:   The Italians and Aus-
tro-Hungarians are engaged in
bitter fighting for possession of
Monte San Gabrielle, on the
Isonzo front. Austrian attacks
on the Bainsizza plateau were all
repulsed.
Paris:    No   news   from   the
French west front.
