THE HAT BOX'
A BIG SUCCESS
Big Audience Enjoys Present
ation of Comedy by Hazelton Amateurs Thursday
FOR THE HOSPITAL FUND
Admirable Concert Program Adds to
Enjoyment of Evening���Net Proceeds
Add Considerable Sum to Equipment
Fund���Dance Concludes Entertainment
The amateur performance of
The Hat Box at the Auditorium
on Thursday evening was doubly
successful, providing a most enjoyable entertainment for the
large audience and adding a substantial sum to the Hospital
equipment fund.
Every seat was filled when the
curtain rose on the first act of
the amusing comedy, which was
excellently acted by the following
cast:
Captain Ardent���G. R. Middle-
ton.
Tim O'Grady���G. Milburn.
Rose Blossom���Miss M. Crawford.
Miss Prudence Rigid ��� Mrs.
Hicks Beach.
Patty Larkin���Miss A. Grist.
The manner in which the various characters were portrayed
led many to express the hope
that other plays would be put on
in the near future. The scenery
and the arrangements generally
reflected the greatest credit on
those responsible for the production.
The concert program, every
number of which was enthusiastically received, was as follows:
Piano solo, Miss Germaine; Quartette, Miss Adams, Miss Grist,
G. Milburn, H. Wrinch; Piano
solo, Miss Hogan; Solo, P. McEwen; Piano solo, Mrs. Hoskins;
Solo. H. H. Little; Solo, Miss
Grist; Solo, P. McEwen; Piano
solo, Mrs. Hoskins; Recitation,
Miss Crawford. Encores were
frequent.
Many of the audience remained
to enjoy an informal dance.
The net proceeds were over
$120.   	
In Trouble Again
W. J. Klimpel, who recently
escaped conviction on a charge of
fraud, is again in trouble. A
warrant has been issued for his
arrest on charges of passing
worthless cheques. One for $10
was cashed by a Hazelton Indian, while a Prince Rupert hotel-
keeper was victimized for $25.
Klimpel took steamer for Vancouver, but will probably be arrested on his arrival there.
Conservatives Elect
Officers For Year
Hazelton Conservative Association held its annual meeting in
the schoolhouse last evening.

McBride; Honorary Vice-president, Wm. Manson, M. L. A.;
President, A. E. Player; Vice-

serious. The surgeons have not
yet operated for the removal of
the bullet, which is imbedded in
the injured man's cheek. It will
probably be removed next week-

New York, Nov. 19:���Four of
the largest United States battleships have been ordered to Vera

Huerta has given increased confidence in the outlook. It is rumored that the American embassy in Mexico City is to be closed
and diplomatic relations severed.
Huerta now realizes that not
only the United States is in earnest in its intention to oust him,
and may accomplish his elimination by lifting the embargo on
the importation of arms, but
also that Great Britain and other
powers have assumed more than
a passive attitude of acquiescence in the American policy.

The Omineca Miner has the largest bona fide circulation of any newspaper in the
Northern Interior of British Columbia.
Lord Charles Beresford called attention theother day to a novel
feature of the new naval situation which is very often lost sight of
by even sincere students of international affairs. By way of proof
of his statement that, while "the British fleet is stronger than it ever
was, it was never weaker as compared with other nations," he
pointed out that "there are 150 Dreadnoughts built, building, or
projected in the world, of which Britain owns thirty-nine."
That is. there are a lot more nations seriously entered in the
naval race now than there used to be. It is not so very long, says
the Star, since it was Britain first and France second, and all the
o hers nowhere. There was not a single other Navy of importance
in existence. Great Britain maintained a two-power standard
against France and Russia; and this made her secure from any
possible combination.
But now a complete change has come. We contrast the British
Navy with the German as the next strongest; but we are constantly
consciousof at least four other first-class navies in the background.
These are the Navies of the United States, France, Japan and
Italy. Then buhind these, again, are the Navies of Austria, Russia, South America, and even some of the lesser nations. It is no
lontjer "Eclipse" first, its rival next, and everybody else nowhere.
Britain can no longer be indifferent to the naval combinations of
the world. She can no longer issue the challenge in the naval
arena���
"Come the three corners of the world in arms
And we shall shock them!"
Add the Japanese fleet or the American fleet or the French
fleet to the navies of the Triple Alliance, and the odds against her
would be appalling. So it is no wonder that Lord Charles Beresford
declared that "the co-operation of the Dominions is more imperative than ever." And he very significantly remarked���"Policy
and sentiment may alter in an afternoon, but it takes two years to
build a battleship."

The big departmental   stores
continue to extend their interests
in or control of the daily newspapers in Toronto, Montreal, and
Winnipeg.     A large interest in,
if not the  control   of.   another
Toronto daily has just been acquired.   This makes three dailies
in Toronto in  which these mail
order houses are financially interested.     In  Montreal  it came
out in legal proceedings recently
that one of the oldest daily newspapers there passed some months
ago into the hands of the chief
owner  of a rising   mail  order
house which aims to monopolize
the trade  in   Eastern   Canada.
There are now nine dailies  in
Toronto,   Montreal, and   Winnipeg,   which   are   known  to   be
owned, or controlled  by, the big
store and financial interests, and
while  posing as the mediums of
public opinion are the organs of
these interests.    The trade of
these houses has  grown   enormously   in    the    cities   where
these dailies circulate, but in the
other cities and smaller places
where there are good local newspapers, they have not made the
same   gains,  because the local
newspapers are well edited and
are loyal to their local merchants
and refuse to carry the advertising of the big city stores. The
only way in which the big dailies
can make headway is by cutting
their prices.   They get $3 to $5
a year in Montreal, Toronto, and
Winnipeg, but sell in other cities
at 50c to $1 a year.   This does
not pay for the white paper on
which    these    newspapers   are
printed,  but the heavy deficits
are made up by subsidies through
big advertising contracts and in
other ways, and by the low postal rates.     The merchants and
newspapers outside of these three
big centers should get together
and   insist   that   no   newspaper
should have the privilege of the
mails which has a lower  subscription price outside than   in
the center in which it is publish-
ed or which sells at less than the
cost   of   the   paper used.- Dry

The World's Doings in Brief
News Notes from Many Sources
It is expected that the Marconi
system will reduce the cost of
messages between Canada and
Great Britain to ten cents a
word.
General Felix Diaz was stabbed
twice during an altercation in
Havana. His assailant was a
Mexican. All concerned were
placed under arrest.
The two salt-water sections of
the Panama Canal are now open
for use.
Mexican rebels captured Juarez
and executed a large number of
the federal defenders of the city.
With the exception of the
shortening gap in British Columbia and two bridges in Quebec,
the Grand Trunk Pacific is connected up to Moncton, New
Brunswick.
A new wireless station, to be
established between Cape Lazo
and Alert Bay, will eliminate the
"dead" section of the British
Columbia coast, giving wireless
service through to Alaska.
In Vancouver the Crown is
suing Justice Clement for the return of some $4000. It is charged that the defendant misrepresented his 'place of residence,
thereby drawing six dollars a
day as expense money to which
he was not entitled.
Clarke, the San Francisco ex-
convict, and Davis, the Seattle

Good progress is being made
with the construction of the

the show will be repeated here

Richard Kleesattel, the Seattle
mining man, who is associated
with other well-known operators,
returned yesterday from a visit to
Hudson Bay mountain properties, accompanied by Frank Martin and W. Irving. Mr. Kleesattel was impressed by the excellent mineral showings in the
vicinity of Smithers, and told The
Review he would return next
summer, when a more thorough
examination of the veins could
be made. He was especially
pleased with the Coronado, while
other properties also looked
good to him. The Lakeview
group, which he desired to examine, could not be properly inspected, owing to the snow. It
is probable that the visitor and
his associates will undertake the
development of a Hudson Bay
mountain    group    early     next
