Turkey Must Abandon Her
European Provinces���Revolution in Constantinople
London, Jan. 22:���The Turkish
government has yielded to the
powers, ending the war. Adrianople and Scutari will be surrendered to allies and the Aegean
Isles will be placed at the disposal of the powers. The allies hint
that an indemnity of two hundred millions will be asked, but
Turkey declares no more concessions will be made and no indemnity will be paid, believing the
powers will support her.
The Ottomans will lose practically all European Turkey.
There is consternation in Constantinople, and the ministry has
resigned. A new cabinet has
been chosen, and strenuous efforts will be made to save the
national honor by retaining
Adrianople.
London, Jan. 24:���Rioting in
Constantinople on Thursday
night culminated in the killing of
Nazim Pasha, commander-in-
chief of the Turkish forces. The
young Turks party, which deposed the sultan, has again seized
the reins of government, declaring they will not submit to the
surrender of Adrianople. It is
doubtful if they can carry out
their threats to renew the war.
The allies look upon the revolution as an affront to the European
powers. British and Italian
warships have been ordered to
Turkish waters.
Hockey Items ��� Game On
Hazelton Rink Tonight
As it is probable that several
of Hazelton's star players will
not be on the ice tonight, there
is a very fair chance that the
fourth game for the Ross cup, to
be played at Hazelton at eight
this evening, will go against the
local team. Lack of ice on Now
Hazelton rink caused the change
of venue.
Stewart has a hockey team
which is anxious to try conclusions with the Hazelton men,
and a match may be arranged
for a later date.
The miners have challenged
the town to a game. Among the
boys on the hill are several
speedy exponents of the game,
and the downtown men will
have their work cut out for them
when the teams meet.
On Wednesday evening the
victorious mercantile team proved
superior to the Holy Terrors,
winning an exciting game by the
score of 5-1. The Counterjump-
ers are now looking for new
worlds to conquer.
Yesterday afternoon a game of
"broomolo" was played on the
local rink, the married men and
bachelors playing a tie. 5 to 5, in
a strenuous and amusing game.
Broomolo, which is played with a
football and brooms, bids fair to
make a hit in Hazelton.
PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE
(Special to The Miner)
Victoria, Jan. 21:���The premier's contribution to the debate
on the speech from the throne
today was a notable feature of
the session. Sir Richard spoke
for two hours, giving one of the
ablest addresses he has delivered
in the house. Parker Williams
having raised the question of the
naval proposals, the premier replied, eloquently endorsing the
Borden policy, which, he declared, expressed the staunch Imperial sentiment of the Dominion.
Adequate protection on sea and
land, and especially on this coast
was a vital issue in an hour when
our vast resources were attracting the attention of the world.
If the province should lose rich
territory at the hands of an
active Orient we should have
only ourselves to blame. We
owed it to ourselves to support
measures for adequate protection
including ample provision for tho
defence of the terminals of our
transcontinental railways. Laurier's purchase of the Niobe and
Rainbow was a screaming farce,
bringing ridicule on Canada.
After reviewing tho prosperity
of the propince, the premier asserted that tho near future was
still more promising. A thousand
men, ho said, wore employed on
ANNUAL HOSPITAL REPORT
The year 1912 was a successful one for the Hazelton Hospital,
as may be judged from the annual report, extracts from which
follow.
The Hazelton Hospital is situated practically midway between
the towns of Hazelton, New Hazelton and South Hazelton, and
practically centrally also between the several groups of mines tributary to this important business point. In fact, had the site been
chosen in the light of present conditions and requirements, instead
of ten years ago when these were absolutely unknown, it could
hardly have been more advantageously placed; and certainly no
more beautiful or ideal site for a hospital could be found within a
radius of fifty miles.
The Hospital stands in its own grounds of three hundred acres.
About thirty acres surrounding the buildings has been cleared and
is part in grass and part under general cultivation. Other seven
acres is cleared of all. but numerous clumps of birch, and transformed
into a natural park. This park is greatly appreciated by convalescent patients during the summer months.
Within the bounds of the property is a lake about eighty acres
in extent, and the main wagon road between Hazelton and all
Interior points passes through the property just far enough distant
from the buildings not to encroach upon the privacy of the institution.
The property belongs to the Methodist church, but the Hospital
project was undertaken with a view to meet the needs of all classes
of people in the district.
Funds for the erection of the hospital were furnished jointly by
the Methodist church, the Provincial government, the Department
of Indian Affairs, and private subscriptions from  local and   other
sources.     The Hospital is required to make regular reports to all
('Continued on Page Five)
HELD ANNUAL MEETING
At the hospital on Thursday
evening the patrons of the institution held their annual meeting,
L. L. DeVoin presiding. The
report for the year was adopted.
After discussing ways and means
of raising needed funds, passing
a resolution of thanks to the
ladies of the Hospital Aid Association, and electing E. H. Hicks
Beach a member of the advisory
board, the meeting adjourned to
take advantage of the hospitality
of the staff, which included an
excellent concert program, in
which the following participated:
Miss Hogan, Miss Sharpe, J. H.
Hetherington, Mrs. Hicks Beach,
F. B. Chettleburgh, H. H. Little,
Miss Grist, Rev. W. H. Petter,
Miss Crawford.
Measure Giving Votes to
Women Shelved in British
House of Commons
London, Jan. 24:���The franchise reform bill, which threatened the safety of the Liberal
government and apparently made
dissolution possible, has been
shelved for the session. A n
amendment granting votes to
women was to be voted on next
Monday. The cabinet and loth
parties are divided on the issue,
Premier Asquith and Winston
Churchill opposing the amendment, which had the support of
Lloyd George and Sir Edward
Grey.
It is now believed the suffragettes will renew their militant
tactics on a larger scale than
ever before.
Board of Trade Election
The annual meeting of the
board of trade was held on Tuesday evening, the principal business being the election of officers
and council. The president and
vice-president, R. DeB. Hovel and
J. M. MacCormick, were elected;
H. H. Little was elected secretary-treasurer, and the following
were named as members of the
council: R. S. Sargent, E. H.
Hicks Beach, J. C. K. Sealy, Dr.
H. C. Wrinch, A. R. Macdonald,
E. C. Stephenson, and W. W.
Wrathall.
the Pacific Great Eastern. More
would soon be employed, and the
contractors hoped lo have the
road completed within two years.
! The Canadian Northern, he predicted, would be running trains
! 100 miles beyond Kamloops before the end of the present year.
A new bill was given its second
reading, providing for the appointment of an auditor-general
for the province and a treasury
board consisting of the minister
of finance and three other members of the executive council.
The new official will hold olfico
during good behavior.
Vancouver, Jan. 24:- Rain today is dispersing the heaviest
snowfall the city has seen for
twenty years. Reports from the
prairies say the temperature is

OUR MINES TO THE FRONT!
First Ore Shipments ��� Official Figures Show Great
Progress of Mining Industry
The office statistics for Omineca mining division for
the year 1912, as compiled by Mining Recorder Kirby, show
splendid progress in tho mining industry. In the table
which follows the figures for 1912, (which do not include returns from one or two of the sub-offices) are compared with
those of the previous three years.
1909
Free Miners' Certificates 521
Mineral Claims Recorded 2(30
Certificates of Work 288
Agreements and Transfers   69
Placer Mining Leases 10
Mining Receipts $9,028.
As compared with the last available statistics from the
other mining divisions of the province, Omineca district is
surpassed in receipts only by the New Westminster division,
which includes the city of Vancouver, and which last year
had a record of 2,82G Free Miners' certificates. The older
districts of Nelson and Portland Canal were the only ones to
exceed the record of assessment work made by the miners
of this district. No other district equalled Ominoea last year
in the number of claims recorded.
The first shipment of Hazelton ore is now on its way to
Trail smelter, the Harris Mines sending twenty-five tons out
on Wednesday. The Silver Standard is preparing for a
shipment of ten cars, loading of which will be completed in
a few days. The ore from these properties is high grade
galena and gray copper, well above the pay limit, as demonstrated by analyses made by the smelter people.

South Hazelton Plans
Victoria, Jan. 22: After conferences with the provincial
authorities, W. J. Sanders has
concluded arrangements with the
government by which public
schools and other services will be
placed at the disposal of residents
in South Hazelton and vicinity at
an early date. It is believed that
by spring the new Skeena river
town will begin active development on a new basis, so far as
town organization is concerned.
It is the intention of those behind
the town to begin at once the
promotion of civic light and
water plants.
Fixed the Blame
Vancouver, Jan. 23:-The marine court of inquiry into the Ches-
lakee's foundering, has not
completed its work. The coron-
ers's inquest was concluded.
Gilbert Vaux, aged 2i, formerly
a butcher, who was freight clerk
on the steamer, is held responsible for the deaths of the women
victims, having failed to carry
out Captain Cockle's orders to
call the passengers. Vaux has
been arrested and charged with
manslaughter.
Canal Rate Dispute
Washington, Jam 24: -The
United States government has
replied to Great Britain's Panama
Canal protest to the effect that
only two points ofdifference are
outstanding, both capable of adjustment without recourse to
arbitration.

"One of the best mining countries in the world -and the slowest," is the characterization of Omineca district by a prominent
mining man, accustomed to the booming methods of other mineral
districts. It is true that the development of our mines, though
steady and consistent, has been slow; but this must not be charged
which have obtained until recently, the progress of the mining industry has been highly satisfactory. Practically without the as-1
sistance of outside capital, the miners of Omineca have, by their
energy and perseverance, demonstrated the great value of the dis-
trict, and have already developed at least two mines to the shipping
stage, with others rapidly nearing that goal. And this has been
done without the indiscriminate "boosting" and stockjobbing tactics which have had such ill effects in other camps.

Titanic Lawsuits
New York, Jan. 20:-A flood of
petitions for damages in connection with the loss of the Titanic
has been filed. Mrs. Harris,
widow of H. B. Harris, the well
known theatrical manager who
was among the victims, asks for
damages of $1,000,000, this being
the heaviest of the 279 claims
yet filed. The total claims
amount to over $10,000,000.
The entire question of the limitation of liability for damage
incurred through the loss of the
Titanic has been raised by an
answer filed with the Federal
District Court to the petition of
the Oceanic Company. This
raises the question of whether
the White Star Line comes under
the British or under the American Admiralty law, an issue
which will also "be raised in the
appeal of A. Leonard Brougham,
attorney for Mrs. Natzsh to the
Circuit Court of Appeals against
the decree of Judge Hough fining
him $200 for contempt of court
in that he entered suit against
Oceanic Steam Navigation Company in the State Court, contrary
to the injunction in the Admiralty Court.
It is of supreme importance to
the claimants against the White
Star line whether it be held that
it is responsible under the British
or the American admiralty law.
According to the former, which
is quoted in the answer of Mrs.
Holverson, the liability for loss of
life from a marine disaster is
limited to about $75 per gross ton
of the steamship which in the
case of the Titanic amounts to
about $3,000,000, and for damage
to property to about $40 per gross
ton.   According to the American
law, the damages are limited to
the passage money collected for
the particular voyage and  the
yalue of the salvage which in the
case of the Titanic
about $93,000.

done on the Panama canal to
January 1 shows that twenty-four
to twenty-five million cubic yards
are yet to be excavated. This is
one-eighth of the entire excavation. Engineers say that the
work will probably be completed

New Educational System
London, Jan. 20:���The Daily
News in an editorial today on the
government educational scheme
says that under the new system
a longer period of study will be
covered and the curriculum will
be materially broadened, particularly as far as manual and technical instruction is concerned.
Medical treatment will be rigidly enforced for all children'in
ill health, while the age at which
a pupil may terminate education
will be raised.
It is the intention of the government also to establish schools
for mothers, where the care of
the child will be taught.
At the same time nurseries will
be built to accommodate those
mothers who are forced to earn
their daily bread and who therefore cannot give their children
proper care during daytime.

Average Rate of Mortality for Five Years 5.5 Per Cent.
By comparison we note that the average rate of mortality in one of our
largest city hospitals for five years was 6.02 per cent. Another in a summary
of twelve years showed a mortality of 8.3 per cent, for all patients admitted.
In this connection it may be noted that our rate has been unusually high
during the past two years. This is the time during which railway construction
was most active in our territory, and ours is the only permanent hospital within
almost two hundred miles. It is not unnatural that some of the mor�� seriously
injured should go where they would expect to find better equipment and facilities for their care than could be provided in temporary establishments. A good
many such have come to us.
An analysis of the mortality of the year reveals the fact that eight deaths,
or 42 per cent., occurred within forty-eight hours of admission, and five more, I
or 26 per cent., within from three to seven days. Almost the whole of these
would be considered hopeless when admitted. For such unfortunates neither
hospital nor any other human agency could expect to do more than mitigate j
suffering for their few remaining hours; hut to none such has there ever been
raised the question of refusing admittance, regardless of the unfavorable effect
upon our statistics.
Improvements
During the year a substantial addition had to be made to the
caretaker's residence in order to accommodate Mr. Goddard and
his family. The improved cottage of five rooms adds no little to
the appearance of the grounds, as well as provides necessary
accommodation for our helpers.
The exceptionally dry summer and fall lowered the water
supply so much as to necessitate deepening the well. After doing
this it was finished inside with an octagonal concrete lining instead
of a dry stone wall. Although the drouth continued we have had
no further shortage of water.
The seven acres of park has been enclosed with Page fencing,
and gates of the same style placed at the two entrances to the
grounds.     This has made the approach to the hospital much neater.
Furnishings
Inside the Hospital, besides renewing sundry articles of furni-
\ ture and bedding, linoleum to the value of about four hundred
dollars has been laid down. This has been put in the halls,
kitchen, dining room, operating room, lavatories, and two wards.
As soon as means permit, this should be extended until every floor
is covered, for besides improving the appearance it is more sanitary
and much more easily cleaned.
Needs
A year ago it was fully expected that an X-ray apparatus
would have been installed before this time. It has been ascertained
however that to bring power from a distance to the hospital as was

THE HAZELTON HOSPITAL REPORT
(Continued from Page Five)
planned at one time, would present so many disadvantages that it
is out of the question. The only practical method is to have the
power generated at the hospital by a suitable gasoline engine.
The only thing now that hinders the installation of this very
! necessary addition to our equipment is a question  of  means.    A
j hospital of the size of ours ought not to be without this appliance.
The fact of extreme uncertainty and difficulty of transportation,
| such has heretofore existed in this district, could be offered as a
j reason or excuse wh.' some should do their best to get along with-
| out some things in general use in other places; but that feature is
now a thing of the past and we must not forget that more is expected of us than formerly.
Other needs comprise the following: Linoleum for remainder
of floors; an improved sterilizing plant; inside painting, and last
but not least, an ambulance.
