THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER IN NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
VOL. Ill, NO. 22
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY SI, 1914
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
ANOTOER SUCCESSFUL YEAR
FOR HAZELTON HOSPITAL
Large Number of Patients Successfully Treated at Popular
Local Institution���Generous Response to Appeal for
Funds for New Equipment���Annual Meeting.
An exceptionally favorable report was that presented to the
annual meeting of the Hazelton
Hospital patrons on^Thursday
evening by Dr. H. C. Wrinch,
the medical superintendent.
There was a good attendance at
the meeting, which was held in
the Hazelton public school.
The number of patients in the
Hospital during the year was
292. There were 126 medical
cases, 153 surgical, and 13 ob-
stet. ie. Of the patients, 234
were male and 58 female, there
being 240 Whites and 52 Indians.
The patients came from 22 different countries and represented
14 religions. The number discharged cured was 196, while 63
were improved, five unimproved,
and 18 remain under treatment.
The number of deaths was 10,
making the remarkably low mortality rate of 3.42 per cent.
'A  gratifying  report of   the
$7,000 subscribed out of $8,000
required, was presented. The
assets of the institution total
$37,511.05, with liabilities of $600.
The report was received with
enthusiasm, and Dr. Wrinch and
the staff were warmly congratulated on  the excellent showing.
The patrons elected R. S. Sargent as their representative on
the advisory board, in succession
to E. H. Hicks Beach, who is removing from the district. Both
gentlemen delivered addresses,
suggestions being also offered by
the government agent, S. H.
Hoskins, who is one of [the provincial representatives on the
board.
Following the business meeting
was an enjoyable concert program, in which Mrs. Hoskins,
Mrs. Hicks Beach, Miss B. Crawford, Miss A. Grist and Mr. G.
Milburn participated. Tasty refreshments, served by the ladies,
equipment fund,  showing  over were fully appreciated
HAZELTON TEAM NOW
SECOND IN LEAGUE
By defeating the New Hazelton hockey aggregation on their
own ice last Saturday night, the
the local men put that ambitious
and speedy team practically out
of the running for the Ross Cup.
Played on a narrow, pent-up
alley, with rough ice and poor
lights, the game was devoid of
interest, there being little chance
to play hockey. Cy North scored
the first goal off the rebound from Public   works  expenditure.
EXPENDITURE WILL
DE REDUCED IN 1914
Reber's shot. In the second
period Sinclair netted one. Reber
sent one in, on a bound back
from the tight net, which the
goal umpire claimed he did not
see. In the third period North
scored again from a pass by
Sinclair. The home team's umpire put up his hands for a shot
which Darling turned off into the
corner. The rink was almost in
darkness before the end of the
game.   The score was 3-1.
Hazelton is strengthened by
the return of Cy North and the
addition of Gordon Reber to the
forward line, and Lhe team should
give a good account of itself tonight at Smithers, where there
is room to play and show their
speed. A big crowd will accompany the players.
The teams are trying to pull off
the postponed game at Smithers
next Wednesday. No chances
will be taken on the ice being
good after March 1.
Saturday's line-up was as follows:

Victoria, Jan. 30:��� It is believed the estimates for public
works 'for the year beginning
April 1 will not exceed seven
millions. This will be a decrease
of $2,680,000 as compared with
previous similar estimates. The
actual expenditure for the year
just closing will be about $8,b00,-
000. The decrease means that
about one-third will be cut from

Washington, Jan. 30: -The

be facing the United States.
There was a long discussion in
congress on the report of the
house naval committee, which
was considered behind closed
doors.   The putative policies of i Grays
Ottawa, Jan. 24:���In his opening speech in Parliament, Premier Borden reiterated the stand
on the navy question which he
took at the end of last session.
"The Government," he declared,
"remains firm in its determination that the three ships shall be
provided, and it is determined,
at a later date, when circumstances are such that it can be
passed, to bring down a bill to
that end."
The Premier also made it clear,
in language that could not be
misunderstood, that the permanent policy would be submitted
to the people at the next election.
He had made this pledge, and
that pledge would be kept.
A ringing challenge to the
Liberals on the attitude of the
Senate, which carried with it a
threat that the Senate's position
might be made an issue at the
next general election, brought
forth a volley of cheers from the
government side. It was evidently a popular challenge.
"If the Senate," said Mr. Borden, "and its friends are disposed to force upOn us the question of constitution of the Senate
and the nature of the appointments thereto, we are ready to
accept that issue."
Mr. Borden was in good form.
Sir Wilfrid fell short of his usual
parliamentary delivery. He was
listless; his followers were more
so. It was a speech punctuated
by little applause. There was no
no opportunity for his followers
to work up enthusiasm, even if
they had had the energy.
Sir Wilfrid was unfortunate in
the form of his criticisms. He
started by attacking the late
session and vigorously defended
the Fall opening of parliament,
something to which all of his followers are opposed, then followed
with a back-handed compliment
to Hon. Arthur Meighen, the new

solicitor-general, by long odds
one of the most popular men in
the house, whom he described a
sophist and dialectician. Finally
he attacked Hon. George E. Foster, for his absence from the
House. Mr. Foster has already
sailed from England for Canada,
while his absence has been to
attend the Imperial Trade Commission, one of the most important bodies which have ever
visited the various Overseas
Dominions.
The most surprising part of
Sir Wilfred's speech was his
tariff references. The wort's
"free food" were actually
shunned; they were not even
used once in the course of an
hour and a half speech. Free
wheat was suggested, but free
food as a policy was dropped.
His remarks were so guarded as
to give strength to the rumor
that there is a strong opposition
io the policy from the agriculturists in his ranks. His speech as
well as his amendment, was delightfully vague.
Premier Borden was not slow
to search out this weak point,
and sarcastically remarked that
it was framed so as to permit
the Opposition leader to retire
within the lines of Torres Vedras.
Sir Wilfred was as vague in
his navy reference as he was on
the tariff. He sneered at the
idea of emergency; said that the
German peril had disappeared,
and declared that the whole situation had been manufactured by
armament trust. There was no
reiteration of the Liberal stand
on the navy, and no outline of
their policv. To the remark on
the armament trust, Premier
Borden pointedly replied that,
by the policy which Sir Wilfred
proposed last session, he would
have handed over $150,000,000
of Canadian money in the next
few years to this very trust.
Mining Suit Settled
Vancouver, Jan. 29;���The lawsuit of Robert Lyon against
Peter Schufer and Lumon Wood
has been settled out of court.
Lyon, who lives at Kamloops,
sued for one-third of $100,000,
the sum paid by Captain R. G.
Steele for the Silver Creek group
of claims, near Smithers. The
The plaintiff alleged that he,
with Schufer and Wood, located
the claims, and that he was entitled to a third interest. Following the sale to an English syndicate, Lyon secured an injunction restraining payment of $35,-
000, and the case was about to
come to trial when the agee-
ment was arrived at. Each of
the three agrees to take one-
third of the money and pay his
own costs. The expected trial

Among many matters of general interest discussed at last
week's convention of British Columbia's Conservatives, was the
question of reviving the poll tax, with a view to compelling aliens
and others who at present pay no taxes, to contribute to the revenue
of ihe province. Since the aholition of the general poll tax, we believe there has been a growing sentiment in favor of levying a tax
on foreigners and others who, while earning money in this province,
contribute in no way to its development. Thousands of railroad
laborers, practically all of whom are aliens, are receiving, in the
aggregate, vast sums every year, and practically all of this money
goes out of Canada. We recommend consideration of the proposal of
the Conservative convention, which passed the following resolution:
"That the Provincial government be urged to devise and to
place in operation as early as possible some scheme of taxation on
all male adults resident, within the Province, who do not otherwise
contribute to the Provincial exchequer by way of property, school,
or other taxation, to the extent of $5 per annum, or such sum as
the Government may deem expedient."

an Act that would fix guilt upon

Big Year for Mining
British Columbia's total mineral production for the past year
will probnbly not be below that
of 1912, which was a record year,
with a total production value of
$32,440,800. Present indications
point to an increase in placer and
lode gold, silver, lead and zinc;
copper will probably fall below
the previous year's figure of 51,-
456,547 pounds, owing to the reduced output of the Britannia
Mines early in the year when
suffering from labor troubles,
and by reason of the lower copper content of the ores treated
by the British Columbia Copper
Company, and the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting &
Power Company. The British
ColumbiaCopperCompany claims,
however, that the gold and silver values of their ores show an
improvement. The production of
coal will show a falling off of
probably between 200.000 and
250,000 tons, and for the year
will show a total of about 2,400,-
000 tons; considerable increases
have been made by the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal Company; the
Princeton Coal and Land Company: Inland Coal Ai Coke Company, and some others, but the
protracted labor trouble at all
Vancouver Island coal mines has
caused a shortage of some 600,-
000 tons in the production of that
field. The year 1914 should show
an increase greatly in excess of
last year's coal production, as it
will see the addition of two
mines at least to the list of shippers. Silver will, it is estimated, show an increase of
300,000 ounces, or a total of
3,400,000 ounces for the year, and
lead an increase of over 5.000,000
pounds, bringing the total up to
at least 50,000,000 pounds for the
