THE LEADING
NEWSPAPER IN NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
VOL. Ill, NO. 23
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1914
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
A CLOSE GAME
Hazelton Shows Great Speed,
But is Unlucky and Loses
By One Goal to Two.
PLAYED IN EARLY MORNING
It was 11 p. m. on Saturday
before the train carrying the
Hazelton hockey team and a
large crowd of supporters pulled
into Smithers, and the game did
not start until 2.20, owing to
trouble with the lights.
After seven minutes of play,
Aldous broke through and scored
for Smithers. When the puck
was again faced off, he slammed
it into the air and it rolled into
the Hazelton goal while the goalkeeper, who did not hear the
whistle, was leaning on his stick,
in conversation with the umpire.
Although the score was 2-0,
Hazelton appeared to have the
best of the play. Before the
period closed North netted the
puck, but the referee faced off,
for a trip, instead of allowing
Hazelton its play before blowing
his whistle. Taylor meant well,
but his decision lost a goal which
would have made the score a tie.
From the face-off, in the second period, North broke away
and scored for Hazelton, and the
boys tried hard to repeat. Towards the close of this period
Smithers appeared to be going
better, but neither team scored.
In the final period Hazelton came
out determined to win, but the
defence tactics of the home team
rendered their goal impregnable.
Aldous worked like a demon.
The official score was 2-1.
The feature of the game was
the manner in which Reber and
Irwin checked the rushes of Aldous, keeping that redoubtable
player at bay throughout. There
was very little rooting, the play
Grand Trunk Pacific
Buys Rolling Stock
Vancouver, Feb. 2:���The Grand
Trunk Pacific, which during the
past year expended between ten
million and twelve million dollars
for rolling stock, will disburse
almost an equal amount during
the coming year, according to
J. H. Burgis, general agent of
the passenger department here.
"Probably $5,000,000 or $6,000,-
000 of this," said Mr. Burgis,
"will be spent on the western
end of the line."
The list of the rolling stock
purchased last year shows a preponderance of the orders given
to American houses, and the
same policy is not unlikely to be
followed this year.
The heavy purchases mean
much to the prosperity of the
steel and lumber industries.
The Grand Trunk system will
purchase as much new equipment
this year as in 1913.

C.N.R. Branch Lines
Victoria, Feb. 6:���Towards the
end of the month railway legislation will be introduced. This
will include a guarantee of
4J per cent interest on $35,000
per mile for four branch lines of
the Canadian Northern: Victoria
to Saanich Inlet, 30 miles; Kamloops to Okanagan, 80 miles;
Westminster to Steveston, 10
miles; Westminster to Vancouver,
10 miles. The latter is now included, as it is not likely the C.
N. R. will use the Great Northern tracks. A line from Vernon
to Arrow Lakes and ultimately
to Calgary is also proposed.

Ottawa, Feb. 4:���The redistribution measure will be taken up
early next week, A committee
will be appointed to fix the
boundaries of the new constituencies.
Ottawa, Jan. 31:���Premier Borden last night gave notice of the
Redistribution Bill, which will be
introduced at an early date. This
bill will set forth the number of
members for each province, but
will not state in any way how the
ridings are to be constituted,
this probably being left to a
committee of the House, as in
1903.
The unit of representation, obtained by dividing the population
of Quebec by 65, will be 30,811.
This means that the members to
be allotted to each province will
be as follows:
Ontario 82, Quebec 65, Nova
Scotia 16, New Brunswick 11,
Manitoba 15. British Columbia
13, Saskatchewan 16, Alberta 12,
Prince Edward Island 3, Yukon
Territory 1.   Total 234.
In the redistribution Ontario
loses four members, Nova Scotia
2, New Brunswick 2 and Prince
Edward Island 1, while Manitoba
will gain 5, Saskatchewan 6, Alberta 5 and British Columbia 6.
It is expected that the unit of
representation in the larger cities
will be considerably larger than
thc unit in the less congested
districts. It is likely to be in
the neighbourhood of 40,000.
Ottawa, Feb, 4:���The parcels
post will be inaugurated on Tuesday, the postmaster-general mailing the first parcel under the
new system.
FARMERS IN FAVOR
OF A JAN SYSTEM
Victoria, Jan. 31:���Resolutions
favoring the providing of cheap
money for farmers and protesting against exorbitant express
rates in British Columbia were
passed at the fifteenth annual con
vention of the British Columbia
Farmers' Institute meeting held
here this week. Farmers gathered from all parts of the province
and were presided over by W. E.
Scott, deputy minister of agriculture.
On the subject of money for
farmers, Mr. W. W. Winn, of
Howe Sound, moved: "That the
government be asked to bring in
a measure providing cheap money
for the farmer on similar lines
as in New Zealand." Mr. Winn
stated that forty farmers' institutes communicated with had expressed favor with the idea. Mr.
Scott pointed out, however, that
a royal commission was already
enquiring into the matter, and
that no action could be taken until it made its report.
"That the express rates in
British Columbia be looked into
by the Railway Commission"
was another resolution which
was moved but withdruwn in order to be redrafted by the resolutions committee.
Sir Richard McBride in a short
address of welcome to the delegates, stated that the official
opening of the British Columbia
university will be in the fall of
1915, and that a full agricultural
college course, equal to Guelph
or the American colleges will be
established simultaneously with
the arts and science departments.
CHURCH WILL
RAISE/MS
St. Peter's Vestry Meeting
Decides on Effort to Make
Church Self-Supporting.
CHOSE OFFICERS FOR YEAR
The annual vestry meeting of
St. Peter's Church, which was
well attended, was held last Monday in the school house, Rev. W.
S. D. Larter in the chair. The
election of ollicers resulted as follows:
Church Wardens: R. S. Sargent,
people's warden; S. H. Hoskins,
rector's warden.
Sidesmen: E. R. Cox, C. Hicks
Beach, G. Milburn (Vestry clerk)
C. V. Smith.
Taking up the question of
finance, E. H. Hicks Beach presented the financial statement
for the year, showing a favorable balance; but as this was
owing mainly to outside assistance, it was determined that an
effort should be made to place
the church as nearly as possible
on a self-supporting basis. For
this purpose a finance committee
was appointed, consisting of R.
S. Sargent, S. H. Hoskins, E. R.
Cox and C. V. Smith.
An envelope system will be instituted, and the finance committee is arranging to give all who
desire to contribute to the support of the church an opportunity
of doing so. Many who are not
regular attendants have signified
their intention of contributing to
its maintenance, and good results are expected from the
canvass.
The meeting decided to introduce the recently compiled Canadian hymn book, which is now in
general use in Anglican churches.
In conclusion, on the motion of
the chairman and S. H. Hoskins,
a hearty vote of thanks was tendered Mr. and Mrs. Hicks Beach
for their activity and interest in
all Church matters.
New Fishing Industry
Vancouver, Jan. 31: -Captain
McLellan, representing the Skeena River Fishing Co., purchased
in Seattle the American halibut
schooner Roosevelt, said to be

will be operated from the Skeena
to the halibut banks of South and
Southwestern Alaska.

James' Church. The wedding
was a quiet one, only relatives
and friends of the contracting
parties being present.

Saturday, FEBRUARY 7, 1914.
Exhibiting their usual lack of reason when discussing provincial
politics, opposition journals are now criticizing the Victoria government because the legislation which is to be based on the reports of
the agricultural, labor, and coal commissions is not to be brought
d iwn until next session, These commissions, appointed last session,
h ive spent the intervening time in collecting information and preparing exhaustive reports, which are now under consideration at
the hands of the legislators. That matters of such importance as
those covered by the reports should be dealt with in a hasty or ill-
considered manner is not to be thought of, and the Liberal press
would be first to object if such important recommendations as that
for ,i land loan system were made the subject of legislation without first giving the people of the province an opportunity to acquaint
themselves with the subject. Our friends in opposition need have
no fear lhat the interests of the province will suffer through undue
delay in introducing needed legislation.

It is becoming more and more
evident that spring will see increased building activity in
Smithers. At present there are
many business buildings and
residences in course of construction, and contractors report numerous orders for spring work.
On telegraphic advices from
Prince Rupert, fifty lots have
been reserved on First street and
Broadway, two blocks east of
Main, for railway employees who
will remove from the terminal
city to Smithers in the spring.
This doubtless means that many
residences will be erected in that
vicinity in the near future. Other
residential sections are being
built up, and two months from
now visitors will have more cause
than ever to marvel at the rapid
growth of the town.
The improvement of streets
in the business section was the
chief subject dealt with at the
regular meeting of the Citizens'
Association executive on Mouday
evening. The secretary read a
letter from Wm. Manson, M.L.A.,
in which the member expressed
his willingness to further the efforts of the citizens to secure
the needed improvements, although he was doubtful as to the
possibility of procuring the necessary funds from the government.
After a discussion in which
every phase of the subject was
considered, it was determined to
ask the provincial government
fora grant of $12,000 for the
purpose of constructing plank
roadways throughout the business section, and Messrs. Adams,
Carr, and Turner were appointed
a committee to draft a memorial
to the minister of works, embodying the request of the association.
