MANY WITNESSES
FOR MAY'S TRIAL
Twenty-six Hazelton men went
to Prince Rupert on Tuesday, in
connection with cases at the assize court which opened on Wednesday. The principal case is
the trial of John May, the Indian
charged with the murder of Albert Taylor. Over twenty witnesses are to be examined. The
case was presented to the grand
jury, and on the evidence submitted by Chief Constable Minty
a true bill was brought in. The
trial is not likely to be concluded
for some days. The charge of
attempted murder on which Sam
Morris, a negro, is to be tried,
and several civil cases, will occupy
the attention of the court.
GREAT BATTLE IN POLAND STILL CONTINUES
LULL IN CONFLICT IN BELGIUM AND FRANCE
-KING GEORGE VISITS SOLDERS IN TRENCHES
London, Dec. 5:���-Late reports from the eastern and western
theaters of war seem to indicate that no great movements have
taken place during the last two days. The battle line of the Allies
in Belgium and Northern France is believed to have been made
imptegnable, and further German attacks are awaited with
confidence.
Paris last night reported that in Wednesday's fighting in
Northern France over one thousand German prisoners were taken.
The right wing of the Allies has been considerably advanced,
and is now near Altkirch, an important town in Alsace, below
Meulhouse.
There was a lull in the struggle on the left wing yesterday.
King George again visited the trenches yesterday. He was
accompanied by Lord Kitchener.
The Kaiser, who had been in Poland for some days, was in
Breslau on Wednesday. His failure to appear in Berlin during the
session of the German parliament was a great surprise to the
German legislators. It is reported that the Kaiser had a narrow
escape from death or injury in a threatened attack by an officer,
who on being reprimanded, drew his sword on the monarch.
Fighting continues in Poland without definite result as yet.
The Russians are closing in on Cracow, which now appears to
be at their mercy.
The ten German warships which are now somewhere in the
South Atlantic are being searched for by twelve British ships,
according to a despatch from Buenos Ayres.
A British prisoner of war named Lonsdale, in one of the German concentration camps, was sentenced to ten years' imprison
ment for striking a German officer.
An official statement in Berlin says transports carrying troops
have arrived at Antivari, the Montenegrin port in the Adriatic.
The forces were disembarked, notwithstanding efforts of Austrian
aviators to hinder the landing. The Austrian troops are retreating
before the newcomers.
Berlin says Britain will transport Portuguese troops to Egypt.
It is believed the declaration of war on Germany and Austria
by Italy, which was expected to follow the entry of Turkey into
the conflict, will not be much longer delayed.
The last bombardment of Zeebrugge by British warships resulted
in the destruction of the electric plant operating the sluice gates,
and the submarines in the inner basin are now bottled up.   ,
Winnipeg, Dec. 5:���While there is a belief in some quarters
that the first Canadian contingent, if not already at the front, will
soon be on its way. A despatch from London states that the force
is still at Salisbury Plain, and will not leave England until spring.
THE MINER'S TELEGRAPHIC BULLETINS TELL STORY OF GREAT WAR DAY BY DAY
Radium in Canada
Ottawa, Nov. 30:���Three samples of radium-bearing ore from
British Columbia have just been
received by the Department of
Mines, but the quantity of radium
contained has not yet been determined, The examination of such
samples is of the utmost interest
because of the tremendous value
of radium.
. Magnesite is one of the minerals regarding the possible production of which in Canada the
Department has been asked to
report since the supply from
Germany is cut off. The very
best magnesite is known to exist
in British Columbia in large deposits, but they are at present too
far from transportation facilities.
One of the results of the war
has been a great boom in the
shipbuilding centres. In the
north of England the yards have
been booked for 200,000 tons of
new shipping, while on the Clyde
alone, orders have been given for
10,000 ton*.
London, Nov. 80:���Out of the vast and ever-growing army
which is placed at the disposal of Lord Kitchener, a contingent
numbering approximately a quarter of a million men was transported across the channel in two hundred ships, and landed at
Havre two weeks ago, although the announcement has just been
made. The arrival of this formidable army at the scene of war
gives greater confidence in England of the failure of any further
attempts by the Germans to break through towards Calais.
Correspondents' despatches from France, unconfirmed as yet
by any official announcement, state that the Germans have begun
a general retreat from the western end of the battle front. This is
taken to indicate an abandonment of the enemy's plan to break
through to Calais or Dunkirk. The French, Belgian and British
troops are in good winter quarters along the Yser, and have been
pursuing a policy of " watchful waiting."
Yesterday passed without any important engagements on the
western battle front. The situation continues satisfactory from
the point of view of the Allies.
According to unofficial reports, the German cruisers Hertha
and Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse have been sunk in an engagement
with Russian ships in the Baltic.
Premier Asquith, Lord Rosebery and Hon. A. J. Balfour, as
representing both parties in British politics, signed a letter for
publication, declaring Great Britain's determination to see the end
of the menace of German militarism. The pronouncement, which
means that the war will be fought out till the enemy is beaten into
submission, is strongly supported by the press.
No further details of the recent great battle on the Russian
front have been received. The Czar's armies continue to advance
all along their extended battle line. There were several engagements
Austrian prisoners.     _ ne enemy nas not yet Deen entirely cieareu fr_nt ._ popu|ar|y approved
out of the region between the Vistula and Wartha rivers, where the
Germans still hold several fortified positions,     lhe success of
Russian operations against these points is thought to be only a
matter of days.
There are reports that several of the German cruisers which
have had their rendezvous in South American waters have gone
north and will make their base at a point on the Aleutian Islands.
the war aggregate 900,000, including 19,000 officers.
The Copenhagen correspondent of the Mail reports that Germany demanded that the Swedish government suppress utterance,
unfriendly to Germany in the newspapers of Sweden, threatening
reprisals in case of non-compliance. Germany's declaration that all
wood was contraband of war has caused a tremendous revulsion ol
feeling in Sweden and Norway, which had previously been favorably disposed towards Germany. Since the declaration, which
means a loss to Sweden alone of fifteen millions a year, there has
been considerable agitation in favor of Russia. Sweden may go so
far as to send ships carrying timber under convoy of war vessels,
in defiance of the Kaiser's order.
The Turkish government is taking over control of all banks
within the empire which belong to subjects of the Triple Entente
powers.
Petrograd, Dec. 1:���The reference of Ex-Premier Balfour in
London to "One of the most impudent messages ever addressed b\
one monarch to another " is explained by the publication here oI
the statement that, on the eve of the fall of Tsing Tau, the Kaisei
sent a message to the Emperor of Japan, proposing peace and
accepting all the conditions demanded by Japan, but exacting, as a
condition to the agreement, that the Japanese should attack Russia.
Japan indignantly refused to consider the proposal, the Emperor
telling the Kaiser that " The day when the last foothold of German
'culture' in the Orient falls will be one of the most glorious in
Japanese history." The reply concluded by telling tlie German
monarch that he had deceived himself enormously in thinking that
Japan was, like Prussia, capable of violating her treaties. The
Kaiser's telegram and the reply were handed to the British
ambassador.
London, Dec. 2:���King George is now at the British head-
yesterday, the Russian troops capturing more German and |quarters in France. His Majesty's action in proceeding to the
an prisoners.     The enemy has not yet been entirely cleared f     t ���   ____.u___ nnnPOvefi.
London, Dec. 1:���Paris despatches say the enemy is again on
the defensive in Belgium. The German artillery fire has become
feeble. The Allies have made progress at certain points on the
battle front. In the Argonne region several attacks by the enemy
on the town of Dagatelle were repulsed. A dense fog obscures the
heights of the MeOse.
It is reported that the Russians have begun the bombardment
of Cracow, using heavy siege guns. The suburbs of the city are in
flames. The capture of the fortress is expected to occur shortly.
With Przemysl under seige, this would mean Russian ascendancy
in Austria north of the Carpathians.
Germany acknowledges that the northern army of Russia has
penetrated Prussian territory, to a point fifteen miles southwest of
Gumbinnen.
Desperate fighting between Russians and Germans took place
yesterday between Glovna and Sobota, where the Czar's forces
took ten miles of trenches, protected by triple earthworks and wire
defences.
Reports indicate that Austria's losses since the beginning of
BRIDGE IS J3ADLY NEEDED
Mass Meeting Decides to Agitate
for Permanent Structure
Over Bulkley.
There was a large attendance
at the public meeting called last
Saturday evening to consider the
bridge question. R. S. Sargent
was chosen chairman and S. J.
Martin secretary. After a number of strong speeches, the meeting unanimously passed a resolution impressing upon the provincial government the urgent necessity of a permanent bridge to replace the Bulkley ferry. A committee consisting of Wm. Ware, R.
S. Sargent, J. M. MacCormick, C.
V. Smith and A. R. Macdonald was
appointed to bring the matter to
the attention of the works department, and it was decided to circulate petitions in the town and
tributary district, for transmission to Victoria. The committee
was given authority to send delegates to present the petition, if
deemed advisable.
The business men entrusted
with the work are now busily engaged in preparing for the presentation of the case to the provincial authorities. There is a general hope that the request for a
bridge at the site of the present
ferry will be granted.
On the west wing there has been little fighting during the last
three days. Cannonading continues on Yser canal, but the Germans are making no great effort to advance. The enemy has
abandoned Dixmude, which was taken a short time ago at great
cost. The Germans are now said to be preparing for a final desperate attack on Ypres, which is now in ruins from the continuous lire
of artillery.
In the region south of Ypres, the attacks of the enemy against
entrenchments taken by the Allies the previous day were repulsed.
Three German batteries of heavy guns were damaged. A spirited
artillery duel is in progress southwest of Peronne. A German
battery has been destroyed near Craonne.
The Czar is going to the battle front.
Many German prisoners taken in the Lodz region are suffering
from frozen hands and feet. The condition of many of the German
troops is said to resemble that of Napoleon's soldiers on their
retreat from Moscow. The Russian enveloping movement in that
district continues.
The Russians claim to have taken 50.000 Austrian prisoners in
the first half of November.
The result of the important series of battles in Poland appears
to be still in the balance, though the impression  is growing  that
General Mackenzen has succeeded in saving the greater part of his
army corps, which was surrounded by the Russians.     It is equally
clear that the German plan for taking Warsaw has failed.     Berlin
admits heavy losses at Lodz, but claims to have broken through the

and the district is the annual

be present.

will be extended to all.
BRIGADE PUTS OUT
DANGEROUS FIRE
Hazelton was again saved from
a disastrous fire by the energy of
the fire brigade, when on Thursday morning, a blaze starting
from a defective flue in the Galena Club threatened the business
part of the town. There was no
delay in getting the chemical engines to the scene, and although
the blaze, between the ceiling
and the roof, was difficult to
combat, the fire boys proved
equal to the occasion, and after
lialT an hour's hard work, extinguished the flames. The damage
to llu' building was not serious.
[The Royal Bank building, next
door, appeared to he in serious
danger, but the brigade succeeded in keeping the fire from gaining a foothold.
The German postoffice has issued orders forthe Gernnnization
of the names of a numlw of
French cities. Calais is changed
to Kales and Boulogne to Boonen. THE OMINECA MINER. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1914

Under the caption "Ignoring the Retail Merchant," the
Canadian Grocer, an influential trade paper, says :
"When Sir George Foster, Minister of Trade and Commerce,
decided to advertise Canadian apples for Canadian consumption he
ignored the retail trade entirely. This was quite unintentional on
his part. Advertising was a new phase of business to him. He
called in an advertising agency who told him the proper thing to do
was to give them the money and to spend it in the leading daily
papers. No effort whatever was made to explain the situation to
the retail trade. The result has been that the retailers were placed
ata disadvantage as the public were not properly informed. They
understood that apples were unusually plentiful this year and
could be bought cheap. So they can, but apples of fine quality,
such as leading grocers sell, cannot be bought from the farmer at
low prices. When retailers who give more thought to their reputation and the value they give for the money were asked'to sell apple,
at about $1 a barrel���the price they were led to expect from the advertising���for which they'paid to the wholesaler orjfarmer, $2or$3.
the consumer naturally believed the retailer was robbing him.
Right across Canada in consequence the feeling has gone that the
retail grocer, who has probably the smallest margin of profit of any
dealer in the country, is making enormous profits and is the man-
responsible for the high cost of living. Letters are pouring in to
the newspapers, and some are being published from indignant consumers, who refuse to believe the explanations.
The Canadian Manufacturers decided upon a campaign to urge
Canadians to buy Made-in Canada goods, and $30,000 is being expended under the direction of another advertising agency. Again,
the retail trade are ignored, and so are all the important weekly
newspapers, and the local weekly paper is as carefully read in the
smaller cities, towns and villages, as is the Bible. The manufacturers now complain they are not getting the results from their bi*_
expenditures they anticipated.
The theory of the advertising agency is that if an article is
strongly advertised the retailer has got to handle it whether hi
likes it or not, but this has not worked out in practice. The faci
is that no article has ever been forced on the retail trade permanently. The average advertising agency is not equipped to deal
with the retail trade. They do not understand questions from the
retailers' standpoint and advertising agencies that ignore the retail
service are not giving intelligent service to their clients. As manu
factur.rs learn more about advertising they realize that the most
important factor, an absolutely essential factor, in selling any goods,
is the co-operation of the retail trade.
The National Drug and Chemical Co., who are members of
the Canadian Manufacturers' Association, are to be congratulated
upon coming out strongly on this point. They pay an annual
subscription of $70 to the Manufacturers' Association, but announce,
in a circular to members, their willingness to appropriate $250 of
$500 a year towards a proper advertising campaign, provided that
the retail trade is not ignored. In the circular they have sent to
members of the Manufacturers' Association they say "to get the
full benefit of newspaper advertising, it is necessary that each
manufacturer should make every effort to interest the retailers in
the movement, in order to get them not only to use their influence
.������wards educating the public by means of effective window displays
of Made-in-Canada goods, but also to get the retailers to really
push the sale of goods.     Therefore, too much stress cannot be laid
 while at present the public take a faint interest
in the Made-in-Canada movement, it would with the retailors' cooperation take a very decided interest in the movement and would
be anxious to purchase "Made-in-Canada goods." As large advertisers themselves, they say further, "that unless the manufacturers
are successful in interesting the retail dealers and getting them to
co-operate in the important movement of developing the sale of
Made-in-Canada goods that the money now being expended in the
public press will, while creating some slight attention, be ultimately lost," and again in they circular they say, "to bring the present movement to a successful issue will require not only enthusiasm
but continuous hard work on the part of each manufacturer with
the retail dealer."
These two national experiences are of great value in opening
the eyes of all manufacturers to the absolute necessity of securing
th"  cooperation of the  retail   trade in promoting the sale of any
article.
Advertising agencies are a very useful adjunct in national
selling campaigns. There are some able and brilliant men associated with the agencies in Canada, though unfortunately many of
them lack a real experience in, and grasp of. business affairs.
Some of them recognize this and are honest enough to tell the
manufacturer frankly they are not equipped to handle campaigns
to the retail trade, and advise him that this feature of selling is
of chief importance and should be directed by the manufacturer
himself or his general sales-manager.

Pullman Was a Miner
Following the publication a few
months ago of an article on the
first Pullman car, in which the
conductor of the car gave his
reminiscences, an interesting
comment comes from Alfred
Skeels, of Central City, Colo.,
concerning George M. Pullman
at the period when he was a
pioneer of the camp at that city
in 1859,
It is not generally known that
George Pullman was a stamp
mill owner and that he had acquired quite a competence in
running the stamp mill and store.
Says Mr. Skeels:
"This city has always been
proud of the fact that George M.
Pullman was one of the pioneers
of this camp in 1859, and that in
the following year he operated a
stamp mill in Russell Gulch.
E. S. Perrin, who passed away a
year ago in Georgetown, at the
age of 85, furnished Pullman
with surface ore from the Perrin
and Pewabic lodes for the operation of the"mill.
"The mill charges were $90 a
cord.
"At that time Pullman lived in
a cabin near the mill, a tier of
bunks being arranged for sleeping quarters to give more space
for the living room. The cabin
that held these bunks is still
standing and forms part of the
old Bud Wright place in Russell
gulch, and is pointed out to this
day as the birthplace of the Pullman car.
"Perrin, who had left his family in Michigan, and spent a
great deal of his time at Pullman's cabin, was told by Pullman that he had conceived the
idea of building a sleeping car,
using berths similar to the ones
in his cabin. Pullman left here
in 1862, after having made considerable money from his many
ventures, including a general
store in Central City, run under
the firm name of Lyon & Pullman. This firm also operated
another mill in Gregory-street,
as well as the first smelter on
North Clear creek, below Black
Hawk.
"This smelter, while a crude
affair, was a product of his inventive brain.
"George Pullman, however,
seems to have had the idea of the
sleeping car before this, as he
made a crude affair in 1857,
which was not a success and was
never used. The idea of the
car, however, remained with him.
and there is no doubt that he explained to his friends that a
sleeping car would look like a
cabin with bunks. After leaving
Central City he kept experimenting on the car and constructed
the first car that had a commercial value in 1863."

reinforcements are now at the front, and it is thought an important
battle is raging in Flanders.
The first official Russian report on the recent fighting in Poland
states that, of the German troops defeated by the Czar's forces,
one and a half army corps succeeded in cutting their way through

still in progress, the advantage being with the Russians, and it is
evident that, in the event of decisive defeat, which seems imminent,
the Germans must retire to their own territory.

yesterday had reached within eight miles of the fortress, capturing
a position within three miles of the outer fortifications.

A big naval battle is expected in the South Atlantic, where the
Germans are now reported to have ten warships. This fleet is being sought by British ships. The battle cruiser Invincible is steaming south to join the British fleet.

rafts. The stratagem was discovered, and the Allies' artillery fire
wrecked a number of the rafts, killing many of the enemy and
drowning quite a number. Notwithstanding their heavy losses,
the Germans continued to attempt the crossing until noon.
Chancellor Bethmann-Hollweg, speaking in the Reichstag,
said Germans would persist to their last breath in the war which
had been "forced upon the nation." He declared he had written

asset ted that the British policy wits responsible for the war.

Long Service Record
An unusual record is that of
Jas. E. Kirby, mining recorder
and county court registrar, who
on Dec, 1 completed twenty-one
years in the service of the provincial government. Enlisting in
1879 in the old 24th regiment,
now known as the South Wales
Borderers, he saw thirteen years'
service in England, Gibraltar,
India and Burma, leaving with
the rank of sergeant. Corning to
Canada in 1892, he served for a
year and a half on the Dominion
S. S. Vigilant. Thus with a break
of only two months, he has been
in the service of the Imperial,
Dominion, or provincial government for over 35 years.
