German Offensive Starts Against British Western Line
THE WEEK'S
HAPPENINGS
AT TELKWA
(From Our Special Correspondent)
We wish to call attention to an
error in last week's news. We
have it on the word of Constable
Fairbairn that his hen did not die
of eating pins, but of a-pin-dicitis.
A North Bulkley rancher was
fined five dollars and costs for
having deer meat in his possession during the closed season.
Even at that, some of us might
not be inclined to think that it
was so dear after all.
The third car of coal was shipped west this week.
Martin Saunders met with a
nasty accident this week. He
had just started work on the new
bridge when he unluckily got his
foot crushed in the timbers.
The new bridge over the Bulk-
ley is now likely to be an accomplished fact. A crew is working
getting the lumber and piles to
the site.
Joe Bussinger has taken a trip
to the States, and a little bird
tells us it is with the express intention of bringing back a bride.
Many Telkwaites took in the
masquerade at Smithers this
week, and all pronounced it a
great success.
Steve Young has sold his cabin
to Guy Farrow, and is thinking
of going to the coast.
The agent who has been relieving W. Armstrong while he
has been on a holiday, had an
accident last week. He slipped
and strained his throat.
This week we have to report
a great loss to the community by
the removal of Carl Wakefield
and his family to the States.
Carl is quite an old-timer in the
Bulkley Valley, coming in here
about ten years ago. His jovial
personality and happy smile will
be missed by all who had the
good fortune to know him. Both
he and his wife have been great
workers in the community, and
have always taken a great interest in local affairs. We wish him
the best of luck and hope in a
few years to see him back among
us.
ENEMY DRIVEN BACK IN BRILLIANT
COUNTER-THUSTS BY BRITISH TROOPS
London, March 23:���After a
most brilliant counter - attack,
which occurred at Doignes. when
the British advanced with large
masses of infantry, preceded by
a large number of tanks, the enemy was driven back at 7 o'clock
last night, says today's official
statement.
The great battle on *he western
front continued last night.
Brought Good Sum
The tea given by the ladies of
the W.A. last Saturday was most
successful, and was the means
of adding, together with the sale
of shamrocks during the day, the
handsome sum of $68.65 to the
funds of the Soldiers' Aid, receipt of which is acknowledged
hy Secretary Grant. Great credit
is due to the organizers of the
repast, which was daintily served, and reflected greatly upon
the ability of the local ladies as
cooks.
London, March 23 (2:15 p.m.):
���The enemy has pierced the
British line at only one point on
a 15-mile front, attacking from
Arras south. The battle continues with unabated fury. Berlin
claims 25,000 prisoners, 300 guns
and 100 machine guns. British
gunners serve the guns wearing
gas  masks.     Rheims  has  been
heavily shelled.     Sixty German
divisions are engaged.
The Germans are firing on
Paris from a distance of 62
miles with a new gigantic
gun, shells falling since 8
this morning every fifteen
minutes. Ten have been
killed and fifteen wounded.
An air raid is imminent.
London, March 23 (3:15 p.m.):
���The press and public opinion
are unanimous in the belief that
the western battle will decide
the war. Wilhelm commands
the Germans. The British line
was penetrated four miles deep
west of St. Quentin. Germans,
en masse, forced their way into
Mory, fifteen miles below Arras.
They  were driven out in a coun
ter-attack and a large party of
Huns was surrounded. The sky
is thick with airplanes, who report colossal slaughter of the
grey-coated masses. In the north
the British west of St. Quentin
fell back to prepared positions.
British airmen in places massacred masses of enemy infantry,
expending ammunition and returning many times. The British guns are every few yards.
Fighting today is greatest in
intensity in two sectors, northwest of Cambrai, about Bullecourt, while Hargicourt is the
southern center. Allied experts
are confident the enemy will be
held. Our defence is amazingly
stubborn. The enemy losses are
beyond description.
Hindenburg still boasts that
he will be in Paris by April 1.
NEWS OF THE
WEEK FROM
SMITHERS
JIM MAY LIES IN
UNMARKED GRAVE
However, Fund For the Erection
of a Tombstone on His Resting
Place is Commenced
James Jasper May, discoveror
of Cariboo goldfields and namerof
Antler Creek, pioneer of pioneers
in this province, lies in an unmarked grave in Hazelton cemetery. The man, who, with his
hardy compatriots, turned the
tide of immigration toward British Columbia, and opened the
eyes of the world to the vast resources of this northern empire,
rests without a distinguishing
mark above his grave.
This is not right.
His name will go down in history because he made history.
Generations hence his name will
be remembered and his memory
revered. Therefore it is fitting
that a suitable monument should
be erected to preserve for all
time the remembrance of his
achievements.
That the memory of the man
shall not die, that solid marble
shall perpetuate his deeds, rather
than the transitory records of
newspapers, The Miner, at the
request of Jim May's friends and
admirers, will collect funds contributed by these friends, and
will erect over his grave
a suitable tombstone. This wiil
be an "old-timers' " fund and
old associates of this "grand old
man" all over the province are
Bombard Hun
Points; Bring
Down Planes
London, March 23:��� Ostend
was bombarded yesterday by
British monitors with successful
results. Prior to the bombardment four enemy airplanes were
destroyed by our air squadron.
British seaplanes engaged in
reconnaisance work in Heligoland
bight and attacked enemy mine
sweepers with machine gun fire.
All machines returned safely.

PARCELS MUST BE SENT
TO RIGHT PRISON CAMP
Ottawa: The German authorities have issued a memorandum
to the effect that parcels for
prisoners of war interned in Germany must be addressed to the
"parent" (or main) camps to
which the prisoners belong, and
must not bear the names of any
branch or working camps or of
any other place to which the
prisonor might be detailed for
special services.
Parcels for prisoners of war in
hospitals also come within the
meaning of these regulations.
In the interests of these prisoners it is essential, therefore,
that these regulations be strictly
adhered to, as otherwise the German authorities will not deliver
the parcels to the prisoners of
war for whom they are intended.

Nearly Double
Of Ships Built
Washington, March 22:���Secret
and corrected figures of the British admiralty on submarine losses
and world ship building were
made public today here by the
British embassy. They show
that from both ene i.y action and
marine risk on January 1, 1918,
Allied and neutral shipping had
lost since the war began 11,827,-
522 gross tons, while shipyards
outside of the central powers
were turning out 6,606,275 tons.
These figures, long withheld,
are now made pubiic, because,
while they will not stimulate the
enemy, they will impress upon
the people the necessity for
united action in making good the
losses imposed by submarines.

Winnipeg, March 19:���Approximately $10,000,000 is Canada's
budget this year for the Red

called for in cash and between
six and seven million dollars in
supplies, according to Col. Noel
Marshall, president of the Canadian Red Cross Committee.
FINED FOR NEGLECTING
TO CULTIVATE FARM
At Buckingham, England, recently a farmer was summoned
for neglecting cultivation. He
was ordered to give up possession of the farm in 14 days and
pay a ��10 fine and ��50 costs. He
had occupied the farm, which
comprises 200 acres, for over 30
years.

mileage
20 to 25 miles to a gallon of
gasoline is a frequent occurrence with the Ford car. One
man (name on request) reports
an average of 33 miles per gallon for 20,000 miles. Surely
this is a record that few, if
any other makes of cars, ever
equalled.
It demonstrates the economy
of owning and driving a Ford.
You can average 1000 miles
more travel on Ford-size tires.
The saving on oil and repairs is proportionately large.   The
name  "Ford" stands for lowest co��t and greatest service.

According to the returns received, the average value of farm
land for the whole of Canada,
including land improved and unimproved,together with dwelling
houses, barns, stables and other
farm buildings, is approximately
$44 per acre, as compared with
$41 in 1916. The average values
by provinces are as follows:
Prince Edward Island, $43.70;
Nova Scotia, $33.60; New Brunswick, $28.80; Quebec, $53; Ontario, $55.30; Manitoba, $31.00;
Saskatchewan, $26.00; Alberta,
$26.70; British Columbia, $149
In the last named province, the
higher average is due to orcharding and fruit growing.
As we gaze through the window and view the slow vanquishing of the last rearguard of winter by the warm winds that herald the coming of the spring, our
thoughts move towards that portion of the world where the snow
that fell was died crimson in the
blood of men, and we are moved
to consider the what-might-have
been: if. Germany had not violated Belgium; if Belgium had
not delayed the Teuton advance;
if Britain had not entered the
war; if Verdun had fallen to the
crewn prince; if Russia had not
thrown up the sponge, sweeping us i n t u r n from the
drearest of pessimism to the most
boundless of optimism.
Then turning from the past we
reflect upon the future- What
does it hold for us?^-Sacrifices,
victories, reverses perhaps, which
will shock the national fabric in
their way, and which will cheer
us and depress us accordingly.
But this is a fight to a finish,
favor us or go against us.asjt
may. We cannot but see that
the struggle must continue for
some time. Our cause is just;
we cannot, we must not be beaten. To lose would be to relinquish all hope of peace on earth
and good will to men.
So in this dark hour of our
need, the call goes forth for our
strongest efforts. Freedom must
conquer. Therefore gird up your
loins you sons of Mars.you tillers
of the soil,you miners who delve,
you Spartan women who work in
the day and who weep for your
lost at night, and Forward, Forward to Victory!
