SUCCESSFUL YEAR
Finances in Good Shape���Many
Improvements Needed
to Buildings
The weekly debate in aid of
the Hazelton Hospital sterilizer
fund, held in St. Andrew's Hall
on Monday evening last, was
productive of much amusement
ment and enjoyment to the good
crowd which attended. Before
the actual debate was commenced
Rev. Scott and Arthur Leverett
rendered an instrumental duet,
and J. J. Mclnnes gave a delightfully humorous recitation entitled
"How Baptiste  Came  Home."
R. H. Machin and W. Wattie,
speaking in the affirmative on
"Resolved���That women should
be permitted to enter the legislature," were adjudged winners
of the debate over the negative
champions, Rev. R. C. Scott and
J. P. Maguire. Fifteen dollars
were added to the fund by a collection taken at the conclusion of
the evening's entertainment.
G. J. Brown, of Wood, Vallance

Prince Rupert, P'eb. 1: ���
W. P. Hinton, general
manager of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway, says that
that railway will spend a
quarter of_ a million dollars
in Prince Rupert this year.
A brick depot, machine
shops and a roundhouse will
be built, and, a 1000-foot
wharf will  be  constructed.
A contract has been closed
for the hauling of 4000 cars
of airplane spruce this summer.
There is a prospect of the
drydock being operated on
a large scale, according to
confidential information given to the city by Mr. Hinton.
At the annual meeting of the
Patrons of Hazelton Hospital,
held on Jan. 24, there was an
unusally large attendance, showing the great general interest of
the local people in the affairs of
that most worthy institution,
which has been in.operation for
fourteen years.
The aim of the management
has ever been to keep abreast of
the times or a little in advance,
and the present efficiency of, and
work being perfor ,,ed by our
local hospital is most praiseworthy.
The printed annual report was
read and explained very ably and
thoroughly by the medical superintendent, showing that the popularity of the institution is being
maintained and is increasing.
The very large field from which
patients are drawn tends to enhance the importance of the hospital and very general support
is necessary in order to maintain
the present standard.
The financial part, while satisfactory on the whole from a
business standpoint, shows that
great economy has been the policy of the management. Economy is excellent in its place, but
forced economy,or over economy,
evidences of which appear in the
statement, does not lend itself to
greater efficiency. During the
past year every economy has
heen practiced in order to keep
the expenditures of the Hospital
within the income. Various
matters demanding attention in
the way of improvements and repairs have been postponed for
lack of funds. Thes cost of
maintenance and the general expense of operating have increased
so greatly that active steps to
relieve the situation will certainly be necessary in order to maintain and carry on the work of
the institution of which we are
all so justly proud.
The musical programme was
much appreciated, the artistes
including Mesdames Harris.Scott
and Chappell, Misses Tallander,
Goddard and Smith, and Mr.
Arthur Leverett and Rev. R, C.
Scott. Refreshments were served by the ladies.
R. S. Sargent was re-elected
Patrons' representative on the
advisory board. THE OMINECA MiNER. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1918

llGH COPPER PRICES
DO NOT ENTAIL
HIGHER PROFIT
To show what the copper com-
ianies are up against, says the
Ipokesman-Review, the manager
>f one of the large properties,
ifter careful investigation, has
'ound that: Cost of wages at
>resent, compared with the average of the year 1915, shows an
increase of 35 per cent; cost of
supplies an increase of 45 per
cent. Labor efficiency has at the
same time had a tremendous
diminution, as shown by the fact
that the average number of tons
per man per shift now, as compared with 1915, shows a decrease
of 25 per cent. Under these
circumstances the present selling
price of copper can hardly be
more advantageous to the copper
j companies than would be a price
I of 15 or 16 cents with pre-war
costs, so it is said.
LAUDS SPIRIT OF
WESTERNERS IN
EASTERN CANADA
| SIR ROSSLYN WEHYSS AS
"THREE-EYED ROSIE"
Western people have a way of
attacking their problems vigorously, thinks Dr. George Pigeon,
president of the International
Rotary Club. After making a
visit to the west some months
ago, Dr. Pigeon has expressed
himself to several eastern audiences in unhesitating admiration
of the kind of folks he found out
here. There is no occasion for
vainglory over a testimonial of
this kind, says the Edmonton
Journal, but it is honestly a bit
pleasing to know that a man of
admittedly good judgment thinks
that way. What especially impressed Dr. Pigeon, he says, was
the broad Canadianism of the
westerners and the rapid spread
among them of the community
spirit. In this last respect he
believed the east could well be an
imitator.
A North Atlantic Port, Jan.
28:���'"Three-eyed Rosie" is the
nickname by which English sailors affectionately refer to Sir
Rosslyn Wemyss, the new first
sea lord. This name was, of
course, suggested by the admiral's monocle, says a British sailor
now in this port, who was with
the new first sea lord off Gallipoli.
"The old man sees everything
the other officers see," said the
sailor, "and what they miss he
spots with that there pane of
glass of his. You can't bamboozle three-eyed Rosie. He's a
holy terror. You can't artful
dodger him. But he's a grand
fighter."
Saying which,the sailor departed to see "what those bally land
lubbers" were doing, motioning
toward a squad of snow-shovel-
ers.

20 to 25 miles to a gallon of
gasoline is a frequent occurrence with the Ford car. One
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
of owning and driving a Ford.
You can average 1000 miles
more travel on Ford-size tires.
The saving on oil and repairs is proportionately large.   The
name  "Ford" stands for lowest cost and greatest service.

HalfliMmiim
Workers Strike
In Germany
London, Feb. 1:���Strikes by
half a million or more workers in
Germany and the presentation of
an ultimatum to the government
demanding negotiations for peace
on a basis of no annexations and
no indemnities, better food and a
number of liberal demands indicate clearly that the movement
is of such importance as to cause
the government disquietude. This
is proved by the suppression of
newspapers and Hindenburg's
warning that the strike must
stop.
ThinksStrike-
Action Merely
a Camouflage
London, Feb. 1:���Among the
views expressed in special despatches from Holland regarding
the German strike is one that the
German government is exploiting
what hardly amounts to more
than peace-time demonstrations,
with the object, if possible, of
producing a more serious movement in Allied countries, where
Germany apparently believes the
governments are less able than
itself to control such movements.
the Upper Skeena river, north of
Hazelton, where recent discoveries report the existence of vast
deposits of coal closely resembling in analysis the smokeless
coals of Pennsylvania and Wales,
now used by the British and U.
S. navies, and said to be the only
lumpy anthracite coal in Canada.
The national importance of this
find at the present time, when
nsval supremacy is so vital, and
good coal so scarce, will be readily appreciated. Heretofore Can-
ada'o coal supply has been altogether bituminous.
Over ��33,000,000 in war bonds
was sold by banks in London,
Eng., last week, constituting a
record. The total sales by the
banks now aggregate nearly
��254,000,000. Post office sales for
the week amounted to ��968,000,
making the post office aggregate
more tean $12,000,000. The sale
of savings certificates is also in
creasing.
A despatch from New York
says: There were rumors this
week that the price of copper
may be raised from 23i cents to
25 cents a pound. The basis for
this is the claim of the small
producers that they cannot afford
to sell at the price of 23�� cents,
which the government is willing
to pay for the next four months
The larger producers are satisfied
with the government price, but
admit that production might be
expanded at 25 cents. The whole
question is whether an enlarged
production is needed. It is said
in the trade that 8Q per cent of
the United States production is
going into war work.
