to burn Granville-street bridge.
The incendiaries escaped.
Local Happening^
At noon yesterday a fire, originating from a defective flue,
destroyed the two-story house
occupied by Chief Johnny Pat-
sey, on the reserve. The flames
secured such a start before the
alarm was given that it proved
impossible to save the building.
The drawing for the "Trip to
Frisco" ticket will take place at
a smoking concert, to be given
by the athletic association in the
Assembly Hall, on Saturday
next, the 15th inst. A splendid
program of musical numbers,
boxing bouts, etc., is being arranged for this occasion, and a
big night is promistd to all who
attend.  '
Al. Harris, who went to in
vestigate the Herb Lake free
gold camp, writes his brothers
that the district looks good. The
veins so far uncovered run from
four to eight feet in width, and
where the hanging wall has been
reached a foot of what appears
to be very rich ore is found. The
camp is 87 miles from The Pas,
on the Hudson's Bay Railway.
London, May 8:���The big Cu-
nard liner Lusitania was torpedoed by a German submarine
yesterday and sank with 1500
souls out of 2160 aboard.
At 2 p.m., when the steamer,
approaching the Irish coast, was
ten miles off Old Head, Kinsale,
she was struck by two torpedoes.
Wireless calls for assistance were
at once sent out, and all lifeboats
were manned. The officers acted
bravely and made every effort
to secure the safety of the passengers. Thirty vessels of various kinds hurried to the scene of
the wreck, but less than 700 of
those on board were saved.
The steamer carried 1251 passengers, of whom 188 were
Americans, and a crew of 816.
She was built in 1906. Her
gross tonnage was 32,500.
The admiralty reports that all
torpedo boats, tugs and armed
trawlers, except the Heron,
which went out from Queenstown
to the relief of the Lusitania
have returned. These vessels
have landed 595 survivors and
forty dead. Fifty-two more survivors are reported aboard a
steamer, while others and five
bodies have been landed at Kins-
ale, making the total number of
survivors 658, besides forty-five
dead. The numbers will be verified later, and it is considered
possible that Kinsale fishing boals
may have rescued a few more.
Only a few first-class passengers were saved, as they are understood to have believed that
the steamer would remain alloat.
Estimates of the length of time
which elapsed before the Lusitania sank after she was torpedoed   vary   from   fifteen   to
Rome, May 8: - Italy has decided to proclaim the annexation
of the Turkish islands in the Aegean Sea. This is equivalent to
declaring war. The sinking of
the Lusitania has created a most
unfavorable impression against
twenty minutes. Signals have
been received that an armed
trawler, believed to be the Heron, and two fishing trawlers are
bringing in 100 more bodies.
A Cunard Line agent stated that
the total number of persons
aboard the  Lusitania was 2,160.
The captain and first and second officers were saved. The
other officers went down.
On the eve of sailing, passen-
o'TOaron the Lusitania wcew...-,
ed in an advertisement by the
German embassy that they traveled on the boat at their own
risk. Not a single passage was
The admiralty denies the German embassy's report that the
Lusitania was armed.
Rescue boats are arriving at
Queenstown with hundreds of
bodies. Many were killed and
wounded by the explosion.
Washington: The administration is awaiting definite reports
before taking any steps in the
matter of the Lusitania.
Copenhagen: 1'rinting the news
of the sinking of the Lusitania
in colossal type, the Berlin newspapers hail the successful torpedoing of the steamer as a new
triumph for the German naval
policy. The general impression
in Germany is that "England
got what she deserved."
New York : ��� The board of
trade reports that Italy has declared war.
London, May 8:���A Dublin
despatch to the Exchange Telegraph Company says the latest
report indicates that the loss of
life on the Lusitania is over one
thousand. The Central News
says the number of passengers
who died of injuries while being
taken to Queenstown will reach
New York, May 8:���More than
200 Americans are among the
dead in the Lusitania disaster,
according to a London cable to
the Tribune, whose correspondent placed the total loss of life at
from 900 to 1400, the latter figure
being the estimate of First Officer Jones. It is supposed there
were 400 Americans on board.
Dick Latie, an Indian, sentenced on Monday to four months'
imprisonment for larceny, had a
brief taste of freedom. On
Thursday morning, while engaged with other prisoners in
cleaning the government offices,
Latie disappeared, and succeeded
in retaining his liberty until yesterday morning, when he was
again arrested. Chief Minty and
his constables, after some sleuthing, became convinced that the
fugitive was hiding in the brush,
but would take refuge in the
house of another Indian at night.
This proved to be the case, and
after a night's work the escapee
was found at 4 a. m. yesterday.
The constables rushed the house,
and Latie was handcuffed before
he could offer resistence.
Paris, May 8 (official statement:���Last night the Germans
delivered two minor attacks, one
at Friz, west of Perrone, and
one in Champagne, around Fort
of Beausejour. Both were repulsed by the gun-fire and bayonets of the Allies. The bad
weather of this morning stopped
all action. During the afternoon
of yesterday there was an artillery duel of particular violence
on the Heights of the Meuse.

Paris:���A news despatch- received from Dunkirk says a battery of 15-inch German guns,
which bombarded Dunkirk several days ago, was located by an
aviator. Afterward, 2000 shells
were fired on the casemates
sheltering the guns, which are
supposed to have been destroyed.

London, May 3:- (Official) Tlje

following statement:
A series of small affairs took
place in the neighborhood of the
Galloper and North Hinder lightships on Saturday. During the
forenoon the destroyer Recruit
was sunk by a German submarine, four officers and twenty-one
men being saved by the trawler
"At 3 p. m. the trawler Columbia was attacked by two German torpedo boats, which approached from the westward and
commenced action without showing their colors. The Columbia
was sunk by a torpedo, only one
deckhand being saved by the
other trawlers.
"A division of British destroyers, comprising the Lal'orey, Le-
onidas, Law ford and Lark, pursued the two German vessels, and
after a running light sunk both.
Two officers and 44 men were
rescued and made prisoners. The
British sustained no casualties.
"The Recruit was the oldest
destroyer in the Navy."
Later:   The Swedish steamer
Ellida, the American oiltanker
Gulf Light, the French steamer
Europe, the British steamer Fulgent, and two Aberdeen trawlers
have been sunk by German submarines. The captain and several of the crew of the American
steamer were drowned. A sub;
marine attacked the trawler
Rosevine when that boat was
rescuing the Europe's crew, and
also attacked a trawler which
rescued the Fulgent's crew, killing her captain. The submarines chased three trawlers for 20
miles, after running amuck in

Saturday, May 8. 1915.
No. 36
Dr. Charles W. Eliot, emeritus president of Harvard university, and one of the most authoritative publicists in America, voices
the concensus of opinion in the United States when he says, in the
course of an article on national efficiency as developed under free
"British imperialism had sound commercial and industrial
objects, and was qualified by much domestic freedom, and the
policy of free trade. Being an island, Great Britain tried to rule
the seas.'in order that her indispensible supplies of food and raw
materials might never be cut off. Her Continental imitators have
not had her domestic freedom, her affiliated free commonwealths,
her free trade, or her strong reason for possession of the oceans;
but they have had, and some of them still have, the imperialistic
fever in its hottest form.
"If, then, we must look for the causes of this unprecedented
convulsion in these deep-rooted aspirations and ambitions, what
shall we say about the slow but sleady growth of these sentiments
in Germany? There are those who ascribe this war to the German
Emperor or cabinet, or to some particular German teachers or
authors, or to the growth of a strong, united military caste in
Germany. All these influences doubtless contributed in some
measure to the outbreak. But the real cause of the successive
military aggressions on the part of Germany since 1804 lies in the
gradual prevalence throughout that  nation, and particularly in the! g
educated classes, of an exaggerated estimate of the bodily and
spiritual merits of the German people, and of a firm belief that the
national greatness and the progress of characteristic German
civilization were to be attained through the development of the
most tremendous national force that could possibly be contrived
and brought into being, and through the gratification of the intense
German desire for domination in Europe, and eventually in the
After elaborating his theory that efficiency develops best under
free governments, such as those of France and Britain, Dr. Eliot
says in conclusion:
"The present war in Europe is going to put to a supreme
military test this theory concerning the surest sources of national
efficiency. The war ought to demonstrate in the end that German
efficiency in war is not so great as that of England and France, if
we include in the definition of military efficiency the management
of the supporting industries, and skill  in summoning and applying

and more sense of individual responsibility. The first/year of the
war ought to prove that large and effective armies can be put into
the field after a training of only a few months, if the volunteer
recruits come from the occupations which call for intelligence and
co-operative goodwill, and are inspired by ethical motives which
strongly appeal to them as individuals. The war ought also to
prove that the freer a people are, and the more accustomed to the
exercise of self-controlled liberty, the more warmly and resolutely
they will respond to the calls on their courage, endurance, and love
of country.
"The only issue of the war that can possibly be satisfactory to
the freer nations of Europe, or to Americans, is an issue which
will further in Europe the cause of essential freedom -the freedom
which can be developed under any constitutional form of government, but cannot be developed under an autocratic form. Therefore, we look forward with hope to a diminution in Europe of the

The sinking- of the Gulf Light
is regarded seriously in Washington, in view of the warning given :
Germany that she would be held
strictly accountable   for any loss j
of American lives.
Paris: There is no modifica-1
tion in the situation along the
western front. It is learned
that for two months Krupp engineers have been installing in
the suburbs of Dixmude a marine
gun of very long range. It is
this gun which is believed to be
bombarding Dunkirk. It is said
to have a range of 25.5 miles.
Only nine shells were fired in the
second and last bombardment of
Dunkirk, and it is believed that
either the gun has been damaged
by its own tremendous explosion
or that Allied aeroplanes have
stopped its lire.
London: New attacks on Hill
60 and St. Julien, with the use
of poisonous gases and shells,
have a 11 been repulsed, with
great loss to the enemy.
Ihe British Hag is dying over
the outer forts of the Dardanelles and the inner forts are weakening.

ancient Ephesus, G5 miles  from
London, May 5: -According to
the official report, the loss of
ground which resulted from the
unexpected use of asphyxiating
gases by the enemy has necessitated a readjustment in the
Allies' line at Ypres. This readjustment, which has been in
progress for the last few days,
was successfully completed last
The new line runs to the west
of Sonnebeke.
Petrograd, May 5:���The official
report says: "In Khori-Dalmon,
in the region of the Caucasus,
after two days' fighting, our
troops opened a determined offensive against the Turks. We
completely defeated  the enemy.
"The Turkish losses are estimated to have been very heavy
by the fact that more than 3,500
Turkish dead were found on the
"At Dalmon we captured the
Turkish hospital, together with
the entire staff.
"The pursuit of the defeated
Turks still continues."
The hot weather of the last
week has raised the rivers to an
unusually high stage for this
early season. The snow is leav-
the hills rapidly, and prospectors
are already preparing to- begin
their summer's work.
As a result of the great heat,
bush fires have begun to run in
several parts of the district, and
the forest branch men are kepi
on the qui vive. On Tuesday a
couple of fires in the upper Bulk-
ley Valley caused some interrup-
to the telegraph service.
A. D. McLeod, manager of
the local branch of the Royal
Bank, which was disconliued
last week, left on Thursday for
Vancouver. The good wishes of
the people of Hazelton go with
him and his assistant, C. B. Simpson, who has gone to the Prince
Rupert branch.
London, May 4: The Financial
News has repeived information
from a confidential Dutch source
that German submarines have
been ordered to sink every American vessel sighted, especially
passenger liners, regardless of
the loss of life. This course is
taken to demonstrate Germany's
contempt for the impotence of
the United States.
Amsterdam: The German agitation against the United States
is growing intense. The press is
urging a boycott o f American
products. Americans are being
subjected to offensive treatment.
The Berlin Post, in a firebrand
article entitled "Tactlessness",
attacks Ambassador Gerard for
stating that the German treatment of British officers and soldiers in prison camps was "anything but pleasant."
London: The Germans yesterday attacked the British front to
the north of Ypres, but were
driven back. The French gained ground in Argonne.
A German warship today shelled and set tire to the Lagskaer
lighthouse, on the Aland Islands,

Petrograd despatches report
many engagements on the eastern front, with some gains for
the Russians.
The admiralty makes no comment on the reported capture of
the Turkish city of Maidos.
Athens: The Allied operations
against the Dardanelles are developing favorably, according to
information reaching here from
various sources. Heavy lighting
in which the Turks are constantly worsted continues. The guns
of the fleet lend effective aid to
the troops. The Allies have occupied several villages which are
in ruins. It seems that the
Turks burn all villages as they

London, May 6 (official communication):-The general situation remains unchanged.
Fighting is in progress on Hill
No. 60, southeast of Ypres, on
which the Germans attained a
foothold yeste'rday under
cover of poisonous gases, which
were excessively used and were
favored by weather conditions.
A feeble attack, which was also
preceded by an extensive use of
poisonous gas, was  made east of
j Ypres and  was easily repulsed,
,our   artillery    inflicting  severe
losses on the enemy.
In the neighborhood of Givenchy, Germans exploded a mine
and  again   employed   poisonous
j gases.   Four men were poisoned,
but otherwise the   enemy's ef-
' forts in this direction failed completely.
Later:���The British and their
Allies regained the trenches on
Hill 60, lost yesterday through
the use of gas by the Germans.
Stockholm : ��� The Swedish
steamer Vanadis was rammed
yesterday while at anchor off the
Island of Femern by the German
auxiliary cruiser Silvana. The
crew was saved.
London, May 5: ��� To nine
trawlers, the sinking of which
by German submarines was reported today, another victim was
added tonight. A Norwegian
steamer landed this evening the
crew of the trawler Sceptre, torpedoed 40 miles off Peter Head.
This brings the total number of
trawlers, victims of German underwater boats since Sunday, up
to fifteen. Submarines seem to
be making a determined effort to
prevent England from procuring
fish in the North Sea.
Petrograd (official):���"An enemy cruiser and other small hostile warships were sighted off
Libau today.
"In the region of Rosseny
(Kovno province) we are successfully advancing. On the
other fronts as far as the Upper
Vistula there is no change. In
Galicia, fighting between the
Vistula and the Carpathians is-
developing with unvarying stubbornness. The Germans have
brought up fresh forces in great
strength, supported by very
numerous artillery. The enemy
is following up the old tactics of
attacking in massed formation,
and is suffering enormous losses.
Some of our units fell back to a
second line of fortifications after
desperate fighting. During the;
night of May 2-3, in the direction
of Stry, the enemy recaptured
part of the trenches on Mount
Makuvka. The following night
we counter attacked and dislodged
the enemy. We captured here;
over 1200 prisoners, including
30 officers.
���'In the region of Angelow, on
the Upper Lomnitza, the enemy
on May 3 assumed the offensive
on a somewhat extensive front,
but the movement was barren of
Rome, May 7:���Austria has
refused to accede to the demands
of Italy. Germans are leaving
the city. The government has
taken over all telephones. Austria has suspended railway service between Graz and Laybach,
to permit the running of military
trains which are carrying artillery and ammunition to Trieste. A declaration of war is
London, May 7 (official):���
"There is nothing to report on
the British war front except the
recapture by us yesterday evening of more of our lost trenches
on Hill No. 60, southeast of
Ypres, and that fighting still
continues in that locality. Elsewhere the enemy has shown no
'disposition to attack."
The steamers Candidate and
Centurion were torpedoed off
Waterford. The crews were
Russian aviators dropped shells
on Constantinople. Shells from
the fleet fall within ten miles of
the city.
Allied troops continue to make
progress in the Gallipoli peninsula. Australians and New Zea-
landers have taken hill after hill
at the point of the bayonet.
Paris, May 7:���An official note
issued last night says: "The
German general staff persists in
giving false details concerning
their offensive engagement.
During the last fifteen days the
enemy has suffered complete
checks and severe losses. A
heavy offensive attempted by the
enemy during the last fifteen
days, we speedily broke down.
The total German losses in the
Heights of the Meuse, in the
Woevre and the Vosges have
been more than 35,000. At no
part have they broken through
our lines. They have taken no
important positions from us.
They allowed a dozen of their
finest regiments to be decimated."
Capetown, May 6:���It is officially announced that General
Botha has occupied the important junction of Kanbib, and
other stations, in German Southwest Africa. He expects to occupy Windhuk shortly. Much
railroad equipment was taken at
Karibib, which was occupied
after a forced march across
35 miles of waterless waste,
under conditions which tried to
the utmost the resolution and
courage of the loyal forces.
Petrograd:���In the Baltic there
was an engagement with German torpedo boats.
On the right bank of the
Orzica the Russians repulsed an
impetuous attack. The German
losses were heavy.
In a battle which resulted in a
gain for the Russians, east of
Mlawa, the Germans left a thousand dead.
