PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
Dastardly Attempt to Kill Teller McQueen���Criminals
Escape With Sixteen Thousand Dollars���Stopped Near
Town to Divide Their Spoil.
The pioneer bandits of this
district made their appearance
in New Hazelton on Tuesday
evening, and held up the branch
of the Union Bank in that town,
making their escape with about
$16,000, after shooting C. J.
McQueen, the acting teller.
The bandits, who numbered
four or five, entered the bank
shortly after six, while the teller
and R. W. Fenton, the ledger-
keeper, were at dinner. On returning to the bank at 6.30, Fenton, who entered first, saw two
figures in the bank, but thought
them Manager Tatchell and his
wife. McQueen, who followed
Fenton, was seized by two other
intruders, who had been behind
the door. One of his captors shot
force obeyed, and the robbers
secured the cash box, containing
about $16,000, and made their
escape, after warntng Fenton to
remain quiet.
McQueen regained consciousness after a few minutes, and an
alarm was given. The men
were seen going east through
the town. Next day the police
discovered that they had taken
the Rocher de Boule trail, stopping about two miles from town,
presumably to divide the loot, as
a cheque and a five dollar bill
were found at that point. There
does not appear to be any likelihood of their immediate capture.
The wounded banker was attended by Rev. D. R. McLean
until the arrival of Dr. Wrinch.

thrown to the floor, and four
masked men, armed with automatic pistols, called upon Fenton
to open the safe.  The latter per-
MEXICAN SITUATION IS
STILL MOST CRITICAL
Washington, Nov. '13:���There
is no material change in the
Mexican situation, affairs being
still in a critical condition. The
United States, while awaiting
the delayed reply of Huerta to
its representations, is quietly
preparing for the possible necessity for intervention.
It is understood that Great
Britain is not in sympathy with
the attitude of President Huerta,
and it is not believed he will be
recognized by any of the powers.
Japan has decided to send a
cruiser to Mexican waters, for
the protection of Japanese.
imbedded under the cheek bone,
but as the Hazelton Hospital is
not yet equipped with X-rays the
patient was taken to the coast
on Thursday for treatment. His
condition is not dangerous.

and election of officers in the
schoolhouse on Friday evening

The only son of the Czar is dying
of tuberculosis of the bones.
Britain's Naval Plans
London, Nov. 12:���The British
naval estimates for 1914 will show
substantial increases, according
to a statement by Hon. Winston
Churchill. Even in the region of
the air, said the minister, Great
Britain will not heed to fear comparison with any country.
That transportation interests
are directing their attention in
no uncertain way to the possibilities of Alaska and the Yukon
is clearly indicated by the interviews with White Pass and Yukon Route officials and an American government cabinet officer,
published today, says the Province.
During the absence of Howard
Guest, a rancher of Poplar Park,
Kispiox, some miscreant entered
his cabin and looted it of provisions and other belongings.
Mr. Guest, being ill, was staying
with James Dean, his nearest
neighbor, at the time of the
robbery.
Amos Godfrey, the coal operator, accompanied by Joseph
Neen, a practical coal man from
Nanaimo, arrived on Wednesday,
and left next day for the Groundhog field, presumably to figure out
plans for development of some of
the coal areas in which Mr. Godfrey is interested.
Many tickets are being sold for
the performance of The Hat Box
on Thursday evening next, in aid
of the Hospital X-ray fund.
The Athletic association officers have had considerable work
done on the new rink, which will
be ready for use as soon as there
is sufficient frost to make good
ice.
Rev. J. H. Howe, who was in
Hazelton last summer and spent
several weeks in Groundhog, was
married in Vancouver a few days
ago to Miss Effie Godfrey, daughter of the well-known coal operator, Amos Godfrey.
W. J. Klimpel, charged with
false pretences in connection with
a building contract entered into
with I. Anger, was discharged
on Saturday evening by Judge
Young, who came from Prince
Rupert to try the case.

Sargent's neice, who comes from
Grenfell, Sask., to visit them.
Mr. and Mrs. F. B. Chettleburgh arrived in Hazelton on
Saturday, "d were heartily
greeted by the many friends of

Rioters Out on Bail
Vancouver, Nov. 12:���J. T.
Place, member of the legislature
for Nanaimo, who was in jail on
charges of complicity in the
strike riots in the coal city, has
been granted bail of $2000. Thirty other alleged rioters will be
allowed bail.
The business men of the Coast
cities would have their eyes
opened as to the value of the
mineral industry if they would
organize occasional excursions to
the mining camps, says an exchange. In this way they would
combine business with pleasure
and accumulate valuable information as to development. The
subject is one which should have
the consideration of the boards
of trade.

The provincial department of
agriculture has decided to establish an experimental station near

property of George Driver & Son,
situated on Tyee lake- Present
operations will be confined to an
area of five acres, which will be
cultivated under the direction of
H. E, Walker, the district agriculturist. The land has been
plowed by Mr. Driver. In connection with the farm a meteor-
logical station will be maintained,
to observe and record weather
and climatic conditions. Located, as it is, on a typical Bulkley
ranch in Uie heart of the district,

U. S. and Mexico
The possibility of intervention
by  the  United   States  in   the
Mexican situation is engaging in- j
ternational attention.      An  exchange says that the available j
troops  in the  United  States at1
present are  10,100 cavalry and!
18,060 infantry, with  3200 field'
artillery. About 3000 more cavalry  and  9000 more infantry are
serving abroad in the Philippines
and Hawaii and could hardly be
withdrawn in any great numbers.
The National Guard or organized
militia consists of about 119,000
officers and  men,   about   three-
fourths of which could actually be
placed  in  the field  for service.
The nation  has always relied on
being able to raise a great volunteer army, which no doubt it
could  do.     The trouble  is  that
raw recruits with   no knowledge
of drill or the modern rifle are of
no practical value.     They do not
know  how  to camp,   march, to
obey orders to shoot.   At least
l}p^igllr3IEI^^^^rll
A saying of Hon. R. L. Borden is being widely quoted. It is
to the effect that as the British people everywhere acknowledge one
King only, the time must soon come when they will meet as equals
in the councils of the Sovereign in respect to matters bearing upon
the relation of the Empire to other Powers. This is in line with
Viscount Milner's happy phrase in which he described the ideal
constitution of trie Empire as "a partnership between equals."
Mr. Borden has not suggested any plan whereby this equality in
counsel can be brought about, and in this we think he showed a
wise discretion, says the Colonist. The development of British
institutions has never been spasmodic. They have "slowly broadened down from precedent to precedent."     It has been said by a
careful student of Canadian history that sixty years ago there j some training would be necessary I
were only about four men in public life in Great Britain who be-j before any could take the field. ]
lieved that Canada would remain within the Empire if allowed to
make her own tariffs. They were Elgin, Grey, Russell and one
other whose name has slipped our memory. We are accustomed
in these days to think that the "little Englanders" were confined
to extreme radicals; but as a matter of fact nearly every public
man, Whig or Tory, Liberal or Radical, were beginning to speak in
the "strain to shame us," which Tennyson in his stirring poem so
strongly condemned as unworthy of the nation; which "the roar
of Hougomont left mightiest under Heaven." We have passed
that stage. Then an imperial partnership seemed impossible; now
it is in the thought of everyone. 'But a movement of this kind
cannot be hastened. We must wait patiently for the processes
of time. Thirty years, or from 1848 to 1878, were required to
develop Canadian fiscal autonomy; we cannot hope to develop a
system of joint imperial responsibility, which is a far more difficult
thing, in a few years. Mr. Borden has done useful work in directing the attention of the British people to what must be the consummation of imperial unification, and at this stage the question
may well be left for the present.

In  the navy there are about 50,-
000 men, of whom, say, 25,000
would be available for shore service. They would be most useful,
but as has been pointed out the
trouble in undertaking any operations against Mexico is not how
to take Mexico City, but what to
do when it is taken. The United
States can blockade the Mexican
ports and cause much inconvenience and possibly it will call on
the navy first if it tries to coerce
Mexico and merely keep the
army to prevent the Mexicans
raiding United States territory.
Blockades are, however, ticklish
things to undertake where the
merchant marine of the blockaded
state is very small. International
complications arise very easily.
The  United States might   take
| possession of the coast cities
j and the customs and avoid
jany advance into the interi-

such action would be very effect-
tive. lf intervention comes, it
