REACH AGREEMENT
FUTURE OF ALBANIA
Triple Entente and Triple Alliance in Accord-Autonomous
Government Proposed for Conquered Turkish Province
���Servian Commerce May Have Outlet on Adriatic���
Intervention If Peace Conference Fails to Agree
London, Dec. 20:���England,
France, Russia, Germany, Austria and Italy have accepted the
principle of autonomy for Albania, that country to have the
privilege of guaranteeing Servia
commercial access to the Adriatic.
It is now believed the powers
will unite to intervene should the
peace conference fail.
Will Stand United
London, Dec. 16:���Flat agreement that all the Balkan allies
will support each other's claims
to Turkish territory and that all
will show a united front to Austrian, German or Italian objections has been reached by the
Balkan'envoys, who have begun
a series of conferences looking to
the conclusion of peace in the
Near East. This agreement is
taken here as finally settling the
reports that disunion exists
among the allies and that they
would not support Servia's claim
to the Adriatic port.
The greatest block to peace is
expected here to be the Durazzo
and Adrianople questions. The
disposition of Adrianople, when
the tug comes, is expected to
prove an even more serious 6W-
stacle to an agreement between
Turkey and Bulgaria than the
holding of Durazzo.
Servians Fortify Durazzo
London, Dee. 16:���Vienna despatches declare news has been
received there from Antivari,
Montenegro, that the Servians
are fortifying Durazzo, the Adriatic port over which Servia and
Austria may come to blows. This
action, despite a strong demand
made by Austria that Servia reduce her army strength, is taken
to indicate that Servia is set and
determined on an Adriatic port,
and that she will defend her
claim, utterly oblivious of whether Europe thereby is drawn into
a world war or not.
Turkey Makes Demands
London, Dec. 19:���The peace
conference today adjourned until
Sunday. There has been no announcement of the result of the
deliberations. It is understood
that Turkey is demanding the re-
victualling of Adrianople and
other besieged cities, declaring
that if this condition is not complied with the peace negotiations
will be broken off.
HOCKEY GAMES FOR
ROSS CUP ARRANGED
Hockey games for the Ross cup
are to be played under 0. H. A.
rules, with such changes as locol
conditions may render necessary.
Representatives of the Hazelton
and New Hazelton organizations
have arranged that games shall
be played every Saturday, beginning on Jan. 4, when the first
game will be played at Hazelton.
Alternate games will be played
at New Hazelton. Eight games
will be played by the two teams.
Three 20-minute periods will
constitute a game.
The following officers have
been elected: Hon. Pres., Duncan Ross; President, J. M. MacCormick; Vice President, G. C
Hartley; Secretary, Rev. D. R.
McLean; Executive Member, H.
H. Little.
The cup trustees are N. P.
Moran, G. 0. Graham, James
Richmond and R. J. Rock.
May Reform Senate
Ottawa, Dec. 20:���If the Liberals realize their hope that the
senate will kill the naval biUr the
government is likely to bring in
a measure to reform the upper
house. According to good authority, the government is not
likely to go to the country as a
resul. of senate action against
the naval measure, as the senate
would not be bound by the result
of a plebiscite or election.
Parliament has adjourned until
January 14, when the debate on
the naval proposals will be resumed.
REV. F. L STEPHENSON
GOESJHADYSMITH
General regret will be occasioned throughout the district by the
resignation of Rev. F. L. Stephenson, the pioneer clergyman of
the Bulkley Valley, who will
henceforth make Ladysmith the
the field of his labors. To give
his children the required educational advantages, Mr. Stephenson found it necessary to remove
to anolder commuuity, regretfully
leaving a work which he brought
into existence and in which he
has made so many warm friends.
In a letter to The Miner, the reverend gentleman expresses regret at leaving the Bulkley Valley, which he regards as his own
country, and the people who
have treated him with so much
consideration.
Rev. Mr. Stephenson, who had
been stationed in Atlin, came to
the Bulkley some seven years
ago, traveling over the telegraph
trail with a toboggan team. He
was and is popular throughout
the immense district which he
regarded as his parish, and the
pioneers will join with The
Miner in wishing him every success in Ladysmith.
Station Men Not Employes
(Special to The Miner)
Vancouver, Dec. 20: ��� Judge
Mclnnes decided today that
station men on railroad construction are sub-contractors and that
the workmen's compensation act
does not apply to their benefit.

Orient-England trade, but will
continue to use the trans-Atlantic
and trans-Pacific liners as feeders
for the transcontinental railway.
Settlers' Aid Question
(Special lo The Miner)
Victoria, Dec. 19:-The question of government aid for settlers was discussed with the executive council yesterday by a
strong deputation from Vancouver board of trade. With regard to
the representations of the board,
Sir Richard McBride said the
government policy was to provide transportation facilities as
the first step in the settlement
of the province and everything
possible in this respect was being
done. It was useless, he said,
to attract settlers when roads to
the markets were lacking. When
roads were completed the province, he believed, would get
farmers faster than they could
be taken care of.
The premier added that Hon.
Mr. Ross had in view the appointment of additional pre-emption inspectors to aid the lands
department in the work of issuing crown grants. The government was always careful to
favor applicants if there was
evidence that such were actual
settlers. The government, he
said, would consider the recommendations of the deleRrtion,
which included a request for a
special department to deal with
land settlement.
OAT COMPANY'S RIG STORE
Devouring Element Causes Forty Thousand Dollars Damage
In One Hour on Tuesday Night ��� Large Part of Stock
Burned Notwithstanding Strenuous Efforts���Compa iy
Again Doing Business in Temporary Premises
The store of the of the Hudson's Bay Company was destroyed by fire  on   Tuesday  night,
entailing   a   loss   of   at
$40,000.
The blaze was discovered at
11.30 and the firemen were quickly on the spot with the chemical
apparatus; but the flames had
gained such a start that attempts
to extinguish them were in vain,
and the efforts of the brigade
were directed to saving the adjacent buildings, while a volunteer
salvage corps worked with the
Hudson's Bay staff in removing
such goods as could be reached
before the fire completed its
work of destruction. Some
thousands of dollars worth of
merchandise was saved.
The main building, which dated back to the early days of the
town, was of logs, and burned
fiercely for over an hour, throwing sparks and brands far and
wide. The snow aided in preventing other fires from this
cause.
The fire, which started near
the middle of the store, is supposed to have resulted either
from a defect in the stovepipe or
PROMOTION EOR CHIEF
-SUCCESSOR ARRIVES
After two years of efficient
service as chief constable at
Hazelton, T. G. Wynn is about to
leave the district to take up another position in the department.
According to Vancouver advices,
he is to receive the appointment
of inspector of provincial police,
a promotion which will gratify
his many friends.
Mr. Wynn will be succeeded by
Ernest Gammon, who arrived
from New Westminster on Wednesday, with Mrs. Gammon and
their little daughter. The new
chief is an experienced police
official and will doubtless make
as good a record in the preservation of law and order as did his
predecessor.
Germany's Naval Strength
London, Dec. 16:���Hon. Winston Churchill, first lord of the
admiralty, was asked in the
commons today the number of
' fully commissioned battleships
owned by Germany, and he declined to reply.
The News, however, states
that Germany has twenty fully
! commissioned ships and Britain
' nominally twenty-nine, including
eight at Malta and six in dock,
j thus leaving Germany a fifty per
j cent superiority. The News even
goes further, declaring that
Britain has absolutely no super-
| iority in commissioned destroyers
! either.
Crown Jewels Recovered
Dublin, Dec. 17$-���III spite of
official denials there is a growing
opinion that the crown jewels
stolen from Dublin castle in 1907
have been returned to the authorities and that though not actually
here they may be in the hands of
officials in London.
Both the lord lieutenant and
the Ulster king of arms have
gone to London and their journey
is believed to be connected with
the recovery of the jewels.
through a leak in the hollow wire
lighting   system. Manager
George Graham made his usual
least inspection of the premises at ten
o'clock, at which time everything
was apparently all right, the
stove drafts being closed. Constable Grant passed the store
half an hour before the alarm
was rung, and saw nothing
wrong. He was one of the first
to arrive after the fire was discovered, and found the doors and
windows all safely fastened. The
manager and the police are satisfied that the fire started accidentally.
Before the fire burned out Mr.
Graham had the salvaged stock
removed to other quarters and at
once resumed business, with his
office in the old Charleson premises across the street. Temporary accommodation is being arranged for, and business will be
carried on without cessation.
The contents of the safe were
found uninjured. The "log"
kept by the Hazelton agents of
the company for over a quarter
of a century, which was of considerable historical interest, was
^destroyed.
'WOMEN'S AUXILIARY
SALE ANOTHER SUCCESS
There was a goodly crowd in
attendance at the auditorium on
Thursday evening, when the
ladies of St. Peter's W. A. held
their annual sale of work. The
record of success which the Women's Auxiliary has fairly won
was well maintained, the affair
proving enjoyable to those attending and bringing a handsome
sum to the organization. The
various departments of the sale
were ably directed by the following ladies: Candy Stall, Mrs.
DeVoin and Mrs. Leslie; Work
Stall, Mrs. Field, Mrs. Austin,
Miss Patterson; Refreshment
Stall, Mrs. Hicks Beach, Mrs.
Jack Graham, Mrs. Rock, Mrs.

Miss Sharpe was in charge of
the pleasing musical program.
Those who took part were Miss
Hogan, Miss Crist, Miss Crawford, Mrs. MacKay, Miss Light,
Mr. Petter.
Mr. Hicks Beach conducted an
amusing chicken contest.
The ladies of the W. A. desire
to thank the many kind friends
who helped make the evening so
pleasant and profitable. The receipts were in the neighborhood
of $400.
Planning For War
Naples, Dec. 16:���It was learned from a semi-official source
here that Italy has secretly ordered the nation's merchant
marine to assemble forty of its
largest vessels here immediately
for possible use as transports.
In the event of war between
Servia and Austria the triple alliance plans to send 90,000 troops
to Valona and Durazzo.

Mr. Pelletier read through a
long list of the various classes of
officers and men, showing the
very much larger pay on the
Canadian ships than on British
warships. In spite of this they
had been unable to man their
ships in Canada. Longshoremen
at Montreal, he pointed out,
could earn forty dollars a week,
with very little experience. He
would therefore ask the Liberals
if they were going to pay higher
wages or were going in favor of
conscription.
The Vancouver board of trade has taken the initiative in pres
sing for the establishment of a school of mines in connection with
the new British Columbia university and in urging upon the provincial government the necessity for the addition of a geological
survey bureau to the department of mines.
The institution of a provincial school of mines, which is practically certain to be undertaken by the government, will have an
important and beneficial effect upon the great mineral industry of
the province; but it will be some time before its direct influence
will be felt throughout the country. The second project, which we
consider of even greater importance, is one which will, if carried
out, bring immediate results. The benefit to the mining industry
of a provincial geological survey corps of trained and energetic field
men can hardly be overestimated, and the desirability of such a
bureau as the Vancouver board suggests will be apparent to every
mining man in the province.
It is not our intention to disparage the present field staff of the
department of mines; but we believe the opinion generally held
throughout the mining districts is that the system of field work
now in effect might well be improved. The geological survey of |
Canada is an admirable institution, which furnishes valuable reports; but its publications are necessarily delayed until much of
their value is lost. If the province can maintain a bureau of its
own, presenting early reports on the mineral districts of British
Columbia, an important step will have been taken in the development of our mineral resources, and the time will be hastened when
the province shall take a leading place in mining.
In the matter of government aid to settlers in new districts
the Vancouver board has taken action on the line suggested by The
Miner and other newspapers, in recommending that the government assist settlers to place their holdings on a productive basis.
We believe the time is not far distant when a system of government loans will be adopted. What this will mean to Omineca district and other new agricultural sections throughout the province
can only be judged by the comparatively few men who know the
vastness of our undeveloped afieas of agricultural land.

PELLETIER REPLIES TO
OPPOSITION CRITICS
Ottawa, Dec. 16:-Speaking on
the Navy Bill, Postmaster-General Pelletier said Mr. Graham
was crying out that we must not
only spend our money but also
shed our blood, that the Mother
Country did not want money or
ships, but men. "I am in a better position to know what the
Mother Country wants," he said,
"than the gentlemen opposite.
Canada knows what the British
government desires, and I say to
you that we are doing the very
thing just now which most pleases the Mother Country."
Mr. Pelletier said that the Opposition took it for granted that
Sir Wilfrid Laurier could carry
Quebec on any platform, and
were trying to make some capital in the other Provinces by
seeing the Government plans and
going them one better. Amid
loud applause from the Government benches, he said: "The
Canadian people are always ready
to fight for the Empire, but
sometimes the Government which
happens to be in power at the
time will not permit them to do
so. The Laurier Government
tried to prevent Canadians from
shedding their blood in the South
African war, but soon had to
yield to the overwhelming sentiment of the people."
He said that an effort had been
made by a great flourish of
trumpets to make the plan seem
something big, but in the end it
amounted to nothing practical or
useful at the present time. It
could only result in hampering
the British Navy. There had
been an effort, in other words,
to make it appear that this navy
would be on the firing line, but
every one knew that the ships
would actually be far away from
where the fighting was taking
place,   The trial of strength will

The Minister inquired of the
Opposition how they proposed to

had failed entirely to man the
Niobe. This was a question
worth considering. He made a
comparison of the wages paid on
the Canadian ships and on British ships, which included the

FORESTRY BETTER
THANjHEEPRAISINC
Ottawa, Dec. 16:���A'very interesting question in regard to
the relative value of forests and
sheep grazing was raised in the
evidence taken some time ago
by a committee of the British
Board of Agriculture to inquire
into British forestry. The increase in population makes the
question of its future support one
of vital importance, and the relative value of the different uses of
land in their ability to support
population is a valuable index as
to the direction in which development of the use of land should be
directed.
From the evidence of several
witnesses and that obtained at
previous investigations it was
determined that it took from one
to six acres of land usually employed for sheep grazing in Scotland to support one sheep, and
the committee was of opinion
that five acres would be about
the average. The land used for
sheep grazing is high, broken
land-and some of it is swampy
and unproductive of feed. The
number of sheep one shepherd
could look after was considered
as about five hundred, so that for
the stock necessary for the support of one shepherd and his
family 2,500 acres would be required.
On the other hand, the evidence brought out in regard to
the number of people supported
by a forest on such lands showed
that one hundred acres of forest
would be the average per man
employed, so that the 2,500 acres
required to support one shepherd
and his family would support
twenty-five woodsmen and their
families.
This is a comparison of the two
uses of the land in.a country
where each is most highly developed, and shows their final relative possibilities as supporters of
population on lands that are
rough and elevated.

Bavaria's Ruler Dead
Munich, Bavaria, Dec. 16:���
The death took place last week of
Prince Luitpold, Prince Regent
of Bavaria.
Prince Luitpold was the oldest
reigning Prince in Europe in
point of years, having been born
on March 21, 1821. He was nine
years older than Emperor Brands Joseph of Austria, who was
born August 18, 1830. The latter, however, has already occupied the throne for sixty-four
years, as he became ruler at the
age of 18, while Prince Luitpold
has been regent only since June
10, 1886. The immediate cause
of Prince Luitpold's death was
bronchial catarrh, which was aggravated by the feebleness of
old age.
The King of Bavaria is Otto,
who has been insane during his
entire reign.
The demand for an actual king
instead of the shadow of a monarch is spreading widely in Bavaria. The Clerical newspapers
in close touch with the Bavarian
cabinet today joined the Liberal
newspapers in urging the new
prince regent to assume the
crown as Ludwig III. The
change would involve complicated constitutional alterations.
