PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
MOST SUCCESSFUL PICNIC
Large Crowd at Hospital Park Yeiterday
Enjoyed Program of Sports
And Games
Attended by a crowd of two
hundred, yesterday's picnic at
the Hospital recreation park was
easily the most successful affair
of its kind ever held here. Although cloudy, the weather
proved favorable, and young and
old enjoyed themselves to the
utmost.
Dr. Wrinch and Mrs. Wrinch
and the Hospital staff, assisted
by A. D. McLeod, Duke Harris
and others, had all arrangements
completed before the arrival of
the crowd, and the long program
of sports and contests was carried
out without a hitch. J. M. MacCormick and H. H. Little, who
���^ad charge of the sports and
prize list, performed their onerous
duties to the general satisfaction.
Lack of space prevents publication of the list of prize win-
��� ners. New Hazelton public
school baseball team defeated
the Hazelton school boys; but the
* ladies of the Old Town won a decisive victory against the New
Hazelton ladies baseball team.
In the evening a dance was
given in St. Andrew's hall, in
honor of the lady ballplayers.
Special Sermons
On Sunday morning, Aug. 9,
a special service will be conducted in St Peter's Church, the sermon being preached by the Rev.
J. K. Wright, of the British and
Foreign Bible Society. In the
evening Mr. Wright will preach
in the Presbyterian Church at
New Hazelton. Special collections in aid of the Bible Society's
work will be taken at the services.
Overseas Club
Hon. Secretary Chas. Reid, of
the Hazelton Overseas club, announces a general meeting of the
club at St. Andrew's hall on Friday evening. August 7, at 8:30.
It is intended to reorganize the
Club, and members and others
interested are cordially invited
to attend. The officers are determined to make the Overseas
Club In Hazelton a permanent
and successful institution.
Insane Man Suicides
An insane man named Alvyn
Beynon, committed at Smithers
yesterday morning, and temporarily detained in the lockup at the
divisional town, committed suicide last evening, by hanging
himself in his cell. Government
Agent Hoskins was notilied, and
left for Smithers this morning,
to conduct an inquest into the
affair.
GREAT POWERS ON THE VERGE OF WAR
AUSTRIA THE
AGGRESSOR
Dual Monarchy, After 48-
Hours Ultimatum. Declares
War   on   Servian   Nation
(Special   lo The Miner)
London, July 27:���The Austrian
note to Servia, containing a demand for the suppression of the
pan-Servian movement, was in
the nature of an ultimatum.
Servia was given 48 hours to reply, the time expiring at 6 p. m.
on Saturday. At that time the
reply was presented, but as it
did not satisfy Austria, diplomatic relations were formally
broken off last night.
Martial law has been proclaimed throughout Austro-Hungary,
the legislative bodies being closed
and military jurisdiction being
enforced. Mobilization of the
army is nearly complete. The
transmission or publication of
military news is prohibited.
Moving Servian Capital
Belgrade, July 27:���Having returned as favorable a reply to the
Austrian demands as national
self respect would permit, and
without avail, Servia has met the
crisis by ordering a general mobilization of her troops, under
Crown Prince Alexander. The
King and government are removing to the interior, as Belgrade
is certain to fall into the enemy's
hands.
War is Declared
Vienna, July 28:���Austria has
formally declared war on Servia.
The declaration states that, the
Servian government having failed to return a satisfactory reply
to the Austrian note, "The Imperial and Royal Government
finds itself compelled to proceed
to safeguard its rights and interests, and to have recourse for
this purpose to arms. Austria-
Hungary considers itself, therefore, at this moment in a stale of
war with Servia."
Germany Opposes Mediation
Berlin, July 28:���The German
government has returned an unfavorable reply to the British
proposal that a conference of the
ambassadors of the Powers in
London should act as mediators
in the Austro-Servian ernbroglio.
Italy Supports Germany
Vienna, July 28:���Italy has informed Austria that she will
adopt a friendly attitude,  as a
ALL EUROPEAN NATIONS
ARM FOR GENERAL CONFLICT
London, Aug. 1:���Not since the Napoleonic wars has there been
such a grave situation as now confronts Europe. While war is deprecated, and every effort is being made by Great Britain and France to
bring about an honorable and peaceful settlement of the Austro-Servian
dispute, matters seem to be gradually becoming more difficult of adjustment, and a day or two may see all the Great Powers involved in a
disastrous struggle. In Great Britain there is a feeling of confidence,
but no great excitement. It is generally hoped lhat mediation will be
accepted by lhe belligerent nations before other powers become
embroiled.
Orsova, on the Danube, were
seized by the Austrians, the Servian colors were hauled down
and the Austrian flag hoisted.
All passengers were detained.

Armies and Navies Being Hurriedly Prepared For War-
Britain's Efforts For Peace
(Special  to The Miner)
London, July 31:���Russia has
declared martial law and is mobilizing her army and fleet. Martial law has also been proclaimed
in Germany, while the announcement of the mobilization of the
Kaiser's forces on land and sea
is expected hourly. This statement was made in the house of
commons today by Premier Asquith. He refused to answer
any questions until Monday.
British Fleet Sails
The British fleet, which was reviewed by the King a week ago,
and which was never in better
condition, has sailed with sealed
orders. Throughout England
general preparations for any
eventuality are being made, and
all political differences have been
dropped. France also has forgotten political differences and is
preparing to present a united
front to her foes.
Fighting on Danube
Meanwhile, along the Danube,
Austria and Servia are in battle
array. Several conflicts have
occurred. As anticipated, the
Austrian forces have captured
Belgrade, the Servian capital,
from which King Peter and the
government removed early in
the week. The Servian army,
however, is successfully resisting
the advance of the invaders.
Situation most Serious
The situation tonight (Friday)
presents almost serious aspect.
It seems almost inevitable that
there will be a general conflict
between the Triple Alliance-
Germany, Austria and Italy���-
and the Triple Entente���Great
Britain, France and Russia. Germany has taken a stand for Austria which will bring her intoj
conflict with Russia, France fol-!
lowing.
A doubtful report tonight says
that Austria has re-opened ne-i
gotiations with Russia. Offset-
ting this is the report that France
has given the German ambassador his passports.
The German fleet is in the;
Baltic, where the British navy is
likely to bottle it up. Japan is
ready to support Great Britain.
Hong Kong will be the British
naval base in the Pacific.
HAZELTON AGAIN IN LEAD
Win��   Exciting Ball   Game   From   New
Hazelton By Two to One���Final
Game Tomorrow
In an exciting game, played at
Hazelton last Sunday, the champions broke the tie in the pennant series by defeating New Hazelton by a score of 2-1. Rain
fell during the greater part of
the game, but had no effect on
the game or on the enthusiasm
of the fans.
Earl Pike, with Al. Stokke receiving his delivery, bore off the
honors in the battle of pitchers.
He struck out eight men of the
opposing team in the first three
innings, retiring sixteen in all
on strike-outs. He hit two batters and walked one. In the
sixth, with Sinclair on first, Pike
batted a fly over the center field
fence for a home run, the two
scores winning the game for Hazelton.
Johnny Jennings pitched for
the visitors, striking out fifteen
and walking three. He allowed
four hits, against five made off
Pike.
The last game of the series is
scheduled for tomorrow at New
Hazelton.

Development At Crossing
A visitor in Hazelton on   Monday was B. R. Jones,   of Skeena
Crossing,   who  has   given   substantial  evidence of his faith in
the future of  the   Rocher   de
'. Boule distiict by erecting in  the
'new   Skeena town  a  handsome
i hotel,    now    nearly   completed,
j which excites admiring comment
' from all visitors to the Crossing.
To a Miner man Mr. Jones said:
"I  am   giving  the  Crossing   a
hotel which, when it is ready for
occupancy,  will   afford   mining
men every comfort in the matter
of lodging, and the best of victuals and drink.     They are a class
of men who require and  appreciate the best of everything, and
at the Copper Tavern I shall  be
prepared to give it to them."
"1 hope, however, in the near
future to employ my activities
chiefly in mining."
Mr. Jones, who has operated in
many of the mining camps of
Mexico and the States, and should
know when he is in right, has a
number of miners engaged in performing assessment work on the
numerous mining properties in
which he is interested.

No. 48.
A perusal of the mining statistics included in the annual report
of the minister of mines, reference to which was made in last
week's issue of The Miner, must prove gratifying to all who are
interested in Omineca district. While it is not to be expected that
in the matter of ore production and shipments this mining division
can for some time compare with older districts, there is ample
evidence that in prospecting activity Omineca is away ahead of
a ly other district. In the number of free miners' certificates
issued, the district is surpassed only by Vancouver division, which
reports 1,541 licenses issued, against 1,028 here. As many of the
owners of" mining property in this and other sections of the province live in Vancouver and, naturally, procure their licenses there,
the comparison is not unfavorable to Oniineca. Next to the Hazelton office, Atlin issued the greatest number of licenses���812.
In the number of mineral claims recorded, Omineca, with 493,
in addition to 127 placer claims and 40 placer leases, practically
doubles the number issued in Vancouver, the next in order. With
818 certificates of work, indicating that assessment work was done
on that number of claims, we have more than double the number
reported by any other division, and also hold the record for crown
grants, 25 having been issued through the Hazelton office. Mining
receipts tor the year in the Omineca division were $21,433.40, as
compared with $10,717.80 in Cariboo and $14,433.55  in Vancouver.
The present year bids fair to place Omineca again in undisputed
lead amonst the mining divisions of the province. We have every
reason to feel pride in the showing the district has made and faith
in the future.
Sir Richard McBride's graceful acknowledgement of British
Columbia's debt to the prospector, as published in our last issue,
and his intimation that he favored the encouragement of prospecting, should be pleasing to those interested in the opening up of our
new mineral districts. One prospector, in a letter to The Miner,
says the premier's statement is "the greatest thing, in a mining
way, that ever came down the B. C. pike. Premier McBride has
opened the game, and it is now up to every paper in the province
to keep it going. The encouragement of prospecting means the
fostering of the mining industry and the increase of British
Columbia's prosperity."
Mining and Business
A manufacturer's letter, quoted
by the Chalcopyrite, says:
"I agree with you perfectly on
your views about mining, which
to my mind is the only legitimate
gamble one can enter into. The
gambling chance a man takes on
by manufacture, and, of course,
there is an additional value given
to the products used in the manufacturing process by the demand created for the resultant
product.
"In mining, however, gold  is
already manufactured by Nature.
an investment in a company de- j It only needs extraction from the
veloping prospects is slightly rock wherein it lies. Nature
different from that which is: seems to have taxed the ingen-
taken  by  the investor in a new | uity of man to find where she has
manufacturing proposition. . . '.
"We had a good prospect, but
upon digging into the ��� business,
which involved the expenditure
of considerable money, the
"streak" that showed on the surface became barren the deeper
we dug. Had we succeeded in
"marketing a ��� profitably, we
should have had to combat further competition from the ���
trust, and our profits might have
been exhausted in fighting our
competitors.
"But in mining, if you find the
"streak,"  it is  readily marketable   without   advertising;   the
price is staple and  there is no
competition.     You are adding to
the    world's   wealth   just  that
amount of treasure that is taken
out of the earth.   You cannot
say  that manufacturing, to the
same degree, adds  to the total
wealth of the  world.     You are
using,    in   most manufacturing
businesses,   the products of the
earth that have already been produced,  and  in  their raw   state
have a value that has been given
them in  the markets by the law
of supply   and   demand.     The
alteration of these products, combining them  with one with another, creating a demand for their
placed her precious metals. That
ingenuity in volvesfirst the raising
of the necessary working capital.
As the chances to be taken are
so great, it is far better to distribute the possible loss among a
great many stockholders than it
is to put the burden on one or
two men. That is why mining
campanies, unlike other corporations, have generally such a
large list of stockholders. If the
individual loss to each investor
comes within his means, his possible reward furnishes him the
incentive to hazard the risk.
"The whole trouble with the
mining business has been that it
has furnished scoundrels the
means of making something out
of nothing, through middle-man
promotion, and the misappropriation of stockholders' funds. If
all the money that had been put
into mining companies had gone
for actual development work instead of into the pockets of some
of the promoters, then mining
would not have the black eye
that it has today.
"To my mind, the indifference
that has been shown by the public to mining investments, has
been largely due to Wall Street
manipulations of mining stocks.
pany would give to their stockholders the same information
about the development and financial condition of the company, as
officers of manufacturing companies have to do, then increased
issues of stock would not have to
be floated through stock exchanges, but the stockholders themselves would furnish the necessary additional working capital.
If any of the stockholders had
to sell their stock, it would be
done through the same channels
as stocks of manufacturing companies are now done. Legitimate mining would never fail to
obtain capital. The prospector
however, may feel the hard times
just as anyone in any other pursuit may feel it. They may not
find as many men able to furnish
the grubstake. Just now there
is a dearth of available funds for
such chances as grubstaking a
prospector or taking up mining
options."

George Allen writes to lhe
Miner: "As 1 have already m
Frank Smithers in a ten-rou
contest, to a draw, I would like
to meet him again, in Hazelton,
on Sept. 7, in a fifteen-round contest; one arm free and break at
the referee's order. I am confident that I can do better under
such conditions than in the clean
break style of fighting."
