The special church service
which will be held tomorrow,
Sunday, August 4, will take
place in St. Peter's Anglican
Church, in commemoration of the
declaration of war by Great Britain four years ago.
The programme of music has
been completed and the list of
speakers has also been arranged.
The service will commence at
7:30 p.m., and as the regular
service of the Methodist Church
has been cancelled in order that
the combined service may be
as largely attended as possible,
the presence of everbody at the
union assembly is urged.
Hazelton, Ideally Placed,
Has Beauties Augmented by Fair
Much has been said and printed
in praise of British Columbia because of its wealth of natural resources, the beauty of its scenery
and the delightfulness of its climate, but nowhere does this
apply with more truth than along
the G.T.P. between Prince Ru
pert and Prince George. Of all
the ideal residential points along
the line, we at Hazelton, as one
visitor enthusiastically assures
us, are the most-favored by natural beauty of location and excellence of climate. At any rate,
whether by the recognition of
the attractions of Hazelton or by
the hospitality of its people, this
town has become the tourist's
Mecca of the Northwest. Especially worthy of mention is the
number of charming young ladies
who have made the pilgrimage to
Hazelton during the summer.
It would indeed be hard to assemble in many larger centers
than this a more notable group
of beauty and charm than the
Misses Duthie, MacLachlan and
Kent, of Vancouver, Miss Peel,
of Regina, Misses Tubby and
Olsen, of Prince Rupert, and
Miss Wiseman, of Seattle, Wash
As is usual, too, in all pleasant
places, Hazelton has a particular
attraction for former residents.
Among the "old-timers with us
this summer we are glad to welcome Mrs. R. E. Allen and children, and Mrs. E. R. Cox and
family.   Fortunate Hazelton!
Born���at Hazelton Hospital, on
Wednesday, July 31, a daughter

a visit of inspection to Hazelton
this week.
A number of young people
were the guests of Mr. and Mrs.
W. A. Wattie at their residence
last evening.
Word has been received in Hazelton that "Ernie" Lofquist,
well- and popularly known in
this district, who left here two
years ago, is now a pilot in the
Flying Corps,in which his adapt
ability and progressiveness ate
shown by the fact that he is in
charge of a machine on the airplane mail service between Montreal and Toronto.

Diplomas On
Thursday Night
The residence of Dr. Wrinch
was the scence of a pretty graduation party on Thursday evening, when Miss J. Tallander and
Miss A. M. Colwill, having completed their course of training
at Hazelton Hospital, received
their diplomas. After a short
musical program, Dr. Wrinch
made an address and read the
paper which he had presented a
weeks ago at the hospitals convention in Vancouver.
In a congratulatory speech,
Mrs. R. S. Sargent presented the
diplomas to the graduating nurses

Total of Memorial Fund Reaches
One Hundred and Fifteen
The fourth weekly dance was
held in Assembly Hall on Thursday evening. The floor was
barely large enough to accommodate the extremely large number of dancers who were present. The evening was ideal for
such an an affair, and everybody
was out for a good tine. Judging from the sounds of revelry
in the hall, they were evidently
not disappointed. A handsome
amount was collected, part of
which will be given to the local
public school.

Peter Nielson returned to Terrace this week.
The funeral took place in Hazelton this week of R. C. Fergusson, an old-timer in this district. Fergusson suffered a stroke
recently while working on the
Skeena bridge and was brought
to the Hospital, but was not able
to recover. The deceased man
was well known hereaoouts, having formerly been a road foreman in this district. He was
also a long-time resident in Prince
Rupert, being a pioneer there.
By the addition of several further subscriptions during the
week, the James May Memorial

Altogether, 111 individual subscriptions have been received for
the fund, but this total, we are
confident, forms only a part of
the vast circle of friends of the
deceased James May, the man
who was responsible more largely than any other of the old pioneers in blazing the path of civilization in the Cariboo and the
Omineca. Jim May spent a lifetime in this country when it was
a wilderness. He lived to see
the dawn of the day of development in this province, the vast-
ness of the resources of which he
knew better than most.
He now lies in an unmarked
grave in Hazelton cemetery, but

by voluntary con tribution, a handsome stone will be erected to his

Smithers Citizen Dies
A prominent citizen of Smithers passed away at the Hospital
on Friday morning in the person
of Thomas G. Sloan. Mr. Sloan,
who was among the first to
settle in Smithers, had been ailing for some time and had come
down to Hazelton Hospital a
short time ago. The cause of
death is given as pleurisy.

The weather during the past
two weeks has been anything
but favorable for haying, but
there is very little hay spoiled
up to date, as there is very little
of it cut.
Local Items
Mrs. W. W. Anderson has
turned from Vancouver.
Miss G. Davis, of the Hospital
nurses' staff, left yesterday for
a holiday visit to her home in
Sardis. She was accompanied

Mrs. D. B. Morkill was hostess
to a number of young people at
a very pleasant musicale and
dunce at the Omineca Hotel on
Wednesday evening.
J. T. Phelan and F. W. Dowling, general superintendent and
district superintendent respectively of the Yukon Telegraphs,
were visitors in Hazelton during
the week.
At the beginning of the week
bad weather and increased German resistance had slowed down
the Allied offensive somewhat on
the Soissons-Rheims front, but
this check was but temporary.
The Allies have captured the
German anchor point of Soissons
and have taken Fere-en-Tarden-
ois, another important base.
As a result of the Allied operations, it is probable the Germans
will be compelled to retreat clear
back to north of the Aisne

The regular monthly tag day
in aid of the funds of the local

In regard to a certain article
published in another paper last
week, we "could say a whole lot
more" than we intend to, but
"do not wish to trespass to much
on space in our valuable paper."
While we do not say in this
connection that a denial of guilt
b.v the writer before an accusation is made is practically a confession of guilt, we are reminded
of the Shakespearian truism:
"Methinks thou dost protest too
We go as far as to point out,
however, that we recognize in
the article an application of the
well-accepted principle of military
strategy���that the best method
of defense is a well-directed attack.
We do not think it necessary
to state that no defense is here
intended, either for the police or
for the merchants of Hazelton,
but we do wish to suggest to the
writer of the article that the
proper place to make an accusation or complaint of a criminal
offense is before the courts provided by the laws of the land and
not in the public press.
According to reports received
during the week, the Russian
peoples are apparently tiring rapidly of the strong-arm methods
of the Bolsheviki government,
and are ready at any moment to
throw off the tyrannical yoke.
As far as we can gather, the application of the iron first to Russian affairs has proved equally as
uneffective as the weak and vas-
cillating policies of the shortlived Kerensky regime. It will
take a long time to bring some
kind of order out of the chaos
created by the revolution, but
even today the outlook is not entirely overcast. We see hope in
the growing independence of the
people of suffering Russia. The
success of the Czecho-Slovak rebellion against the Lenine-Trots-
ky maladministration indicates
that the day cannot be far distant when the Russian people
will rise in their might, cast aside
the crashing weight of invaders
and tyrannical despotism and achieve their rightful position among
the leading nations of the world.
As the great war enters upon
its fifth year tomorrow, we consider that a few words in honor
of those who have fought and
died for us would serve to steel
us for the future.
Just four years ago at this time
a solemn conclave of white-haired
statesmen was gathered at Downing Street, London, weighing the
events of the past few days and
discussing Britain's course of
action. The result of their deliberations was Great Britain's
entrance into the struggle, the
size of which has staggered the
world in its immensity, a step
which was inevitable and which
can never be regretted. Since
that momentous occasion many
soul-stirring events have transpired; many of our bravest and
best now lie under the soil of
countries in every quarter of the
globe, in France, Belgium, Italy,
Russia, Egypt, Africa, Mesopotamia,   Macedonia and  Turkey.
But who shall say their sacrifice has gone for naught? We
know the enemy is not beaten
yet, but he will be. That much
is certain. The spirit of those
men who offered themselves as
the price of our freedom is the
spirit of our Empire today. We
have suffered reverses and gained great victories, and the balance is now on our side. With
the shining ex; mple before us to
emulate of those who have gone,
we are well-prepared to wait another four years if necessary,and
we hope it is not, in order to assure for the world a peace and
freedom that the blood of our
boys demands.

Leave c5 Absence en Ground of Extreme Hardship.
Procedure to obtain Leave of Absence.
Men Nineteen and Twenty Years of Age.
It has come to tho attention of the Government that there is a widespread
impression that young men of nineteen years, and those who became twenty
since October 13, llJ17, as well as those who may become nineteen from time to
time and who have been or will be called upon to register under the Military
Service Act, are to be immediately called to the colours.
Tiiis impression is quite incorrect. No date has yet been fixed for calling
upon such men to so report for duty, nor has the question been brought before
the Cabinet for decision. In view of the need of labour on the farm, it is most
unlikely that consideration will be given to the matter until after the harvest is
over, although of course the Government's action must be determined primarily
by the military situation.
There, is no fur!her obligation incumbent upon young men of the ages
above mentioned who havo registered or who do so hereafter, until they receive
notice from the Registrars.
Harvest Leave.
Some enquiries have been received as to the possibility of granting harvest
leave to such troops as may be in the country at that time. No definite assurance can be given on this point as advantage must be taken of ships as they
become available. On the other hand, harvest leave will be given if at all
Leave of Abser.ee on Grounds of Extreme Hardship.
It is desired that the Regulations respecting leave of absence in rases of hardship should be widely known and fully understood. Such leave will be granted
in I wo cases:-��� (a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of the fact that the
man concerned is either tlie only son capable of earning a livelihood, of a father
killed or disabled on service or presently in service overseas, or in training for
such service, or under treatment after returning from overseas; or the only
remaining.of two or more brothers capable of earning a livelihood (tlie other
brother or brothers having been killed or disabled on service, or being presently
in service overseas, or in training for overseas or under treatment after his or
their return from overseas); brothers married before 4th August, 1914, living in
separate establishments and having a child or children not to be counted,
in determining the fact that the man is the "only" remaining son or brother)
(,!.!.' where extreme hardship arises by reason of exceptional circumstances such as
the fact that the man concerned is the sole support of a widowed mother, an
invalid father or other helpless dependents.
It is to be noted that iu all thes-e cases the governing factor is not hardship,
loss or Buttering to the individual concerned, but to others, that is. members of
his family or those depending upon him.
Procedure to obtain leave of absence.
A simple system for dealing with these cases has been adopted. Forms of
application have been supplied to every Depot Battalion and an officer of each
