Italy Making Final Preparations
���German Crown Prince
Rome, Mar. 20:���Military authorities are distributing the
identification badges to troops
which are worn in active campaigning.	
Netherlands Protest
London, Mar.[20:���The Netherlands government has sent a protest to the Allies against the
general blockade.
Crown Prince Disappears
Copenhagen, Mar. 20: ��� The
disappearance of the Crown
Prince of Germany for the past
six weeks is surrounded with
mystery. It is rumored that he
has been killed by a member of
his own staff in a quarrel.
Watchman Killed
Vancouver, Mar. 19: Charles
Paiter, a nightwatchman on the
B. C. E. R., was shot through
the body this morning by an unknown Italian whom he had arrested for stealing copper from

Marine Losses
London, Mar. 20:���Submarine
raids for the past week resulted
in the loss of eight vessels, total
tonnage 22,835, out of 1539 arrivals and sailings. Three others
reached port. Total loss since
war started: 96 merchantmen and
47 fishing vessels.
London, Mar. 20:���The British battleships Irresistible and
Ocean and the French battleship
Bouvet were blown up by floating
mines while engaged with the
remainder of the allied fleet in
attacking forts in the narrows
of the Dardanelles on Thursday.
The crews of the two British
vessels were virtually all saved,
having been transferred to other
ships under hot fire; but an internal explosion took place on
board the Bouvet after she had
fouled the mine and most of her
crew was lost. The Bouvet sank
within three minutes of the time
she hit the mine. The waters
in which the ships were lost had
been swept of mines, but the
British Admiralty asserts that
Turks and Germans set floating
containers of explosives adrift
and these were carried down
by the current on to the allied
ships gathered inside the entrance of the straits. All the
ships sunk   were old  ones, the
Bouvet having been completed
nearly twenty years ago and the
Irresistible and Ocean in 1898.
They were very useful, however,
for the work in which they were
engaged in the Dardanelles.
The sunken British ships are
being replaced by the battleships
Queen and Implacable, vessels of
a similar type, and aresaid to have
started some time ago for near
western waters, in anticipation
of just such losses as have now
occurred. Two other ships engaged in fighting, the British
battle cruiser Inflexible and the
French battleship Gaulois, were
hit by shells and damaged. The
British casualties, according to
a British official report, were not
heavy considering the scale of
The damage done to the Turkish forts by the heavy bombardment has not yet been ascertained. It is stated that operations
against them are continuing.
The forts attacked were those on
either side of Kephez Bay and on
Kephez Point, outside the narrows, and those on Kalid Bahr
and Chanak, in the narrows.
The Kephez forts replied strongly when the battle ships advanced firing up the Dardanelles
and as the ships were hit, it is
is asserted that these forts were
finally silenced and a bombardment of those in the narrows was
under way when the three battleships were blown up by floating
The blowing up of the ships
did not cause a cessation of the
lighting, which continued until
darkness intervened. It is understood that the engagement
was resumed today.
London: It is officially confirmed that a Russian squadron
has approached the northern
part of the Bosphorus, says
Reuter's Petrograd correspondent. Appearance of the squadron caused a great panic in Constantinople.
German Consul Arrested
Seattle, Mar. 18: ��� German
Consul Muller with his assistant
Schultz have been arrested for
conspiring with employees of a
ship construction company for
the theft of papers. An effort is
being made to prove a breach ol
neutrality. The German Embassy has made protests against the
Hindu Faction War
Vancouver, Mar. 19:���A faction war is in progress in the
Hindu colony here. In an affray
in a Hindu store on Granville
Street one man was murdered,
one shot through the foot and
another fired at by Jagit Singh.
When arrested by two constables
it was discovered that he was
loaded down with ammunition
and had a kukri in a sheath concealed in his coat. The shooting
is the outcome of the Komogata
and temple shooting.

A meeting of Hazelton Tennis
Club will be held in the Union
Bank on Monday, the 22nd, for
the purpose of organizing for the

Incorporation has been granted
to the Upper Skeena Farmers'
Institute, with head office at

10, at Cedarvale.
Paris, Mar. 15:���Official reports
say British success on a part of
the western front is absolutely
complete. British heavy and
field artillery did splendid preparatory work. Canadian forces
formed part of the solid wedge
at Neuve Chappelle. General
French congratulated General
Alderson, who commands the
London:���Halil Bey, president
Turkish chamber at Sofia, offers
Adrianople and the return of
territory won in the second Balkan war if Bulgaria attack Greece
and occupy Greek Macedonia.
The premier's reply was noncommittal,
London: -Germansare massing
troops in the Yser region, preparatory to an attempt to break
the British lines.
Athens:���Former premier Ven-
izelos appeals to the new government of Greece to abandon
neutrality. He says the present
offers an opportunity to Greece
to quadruple itself. Turkey has
ottered to renounce all islands in
the Aegean Sea occupied by
Greeks if neutrality is kept. Von
der Goltz has left Constantinople.
London, March, 15: ��� Telegraphing from Petrograd, the
Times correspondent says that
the German advance in Mlawa,
in the region of Poland, has been
delayed by the Russian action
on their front and flanks. The
German columns moving up the
Orzeyo and Omulew valleys have
been checked. The enemy's infantry have failed to make head
way in the plains north of Przas-
nysz. Milder weather enabled
them to entrench, adds the correspondent, but during Friday
night they were seized with
panic and withdrew three miles
to the north, abandoning arms
and ammunition. Our action
on the extreme left of Field-
Marshal von Hindenberg'sarmies
appears to have modified his
London: The war office has
made the following announcement: "A heavy counter-attack
delivered by the enemy on Saturday afternoon and several
minor counter-attacks earlier in
the day were all repulsed. Judging by observations on various
parts of the field of battle and
by statements of prisoners, of
whom there are now 1,720, the
enemy's losses must have been
very heavy and cannot have fallen far short of 10,000 men within
three days. A train at Don
station was destroyed by our aircraft on Sunday morning."
Bordeaux: -The steamer Aug-
uste Consil, from Cardiff to Rouen
with a cargo of coal, was torpedoed by a submarine off Start
Point, near the southern extremity of Devon, England, on Thursday afternoon. The crew of
twenty-eight men are reported
to have been saved by a Danish
steamer and taken to Falmouth.
The Auguste Consil, belonging
to the Society les Affreteurs
Reunis, was a steamer of 1,852
London:���The Swedish steamer Cloris, grain-laden from La
Plate for Stockholm, has been
captured by Germans and taken
into Swinmund, according to a
despatch to Reuter's Telegram
company from Copenhagen.
London: ��� The Daily Telegraph's Pekin correspondent
says he is able to assert on reliable information that 27,000
Japanese troops have embarked
for China and that China is
about to appeal to Great Britain.
Petrograd: An official statement says that the bombardment
of Ossowetz continues, the advantage being with the defenders, Two German companies
endeavored to attack, but were
repulsed with heavy loss, their
ammunition and transport being
shelled. At nightfall our scouts
captured the enemy's outposts.
At Prasnysz the artillery battle
continues. We hold the enemy
on the entire front. In Carpathians deep snow causes the troops
to move in Indian file, involving-
heavy losses. The Austrians
continue in their vain attempt to
relieve Przemsyl.
Athens: -Several batteries of
Turkish artillery were destroyed
by British warships. They were
posted above Kum Kale, at the
entrance of the Dardanelles.
London:-All but nineteen of
the crew of the Dresden were
saved by the cruisers Kent and
Glasgow, after the Juan Fernandez fight. The Dresden,
after hoisting   the white   flag,
caught fire and  exploded  later.

A Pleasant Evening
The entertainment and dance
held on St. Patrick's Day, under
auspices of Athletic Association,
marked another step forward
in the line of entertainments.
The concert program was splendidly rendered, and the farce,
"Aunty," was staged in a manner that would have been a credit
to professionals. The orchestra
which took part in the concert
and assisted at the dance
was a sensation, the finished
manner in which it performed
eliciting many expressions of
pleasure from the audience. The
dance lasted until three o'clock
in the morning and was thoroughly enjoyed by all present.
A large number were over from
New Hazelton for the event, the
hall being filled to capacity.
Those who took part were:
Mrs. Hoskins, Mrs. Burrington,
Misses Sharpe, Smith, Goddard
and Soal and Messrs Forster,
Brewer, Phillips and Fuller.

Saturday, March 20, 1915.
No. 29
According to the Vancouver Sun, "Smash the Machine" is the
battle-cry of the British Columbia electors. The manifesto issued
by Mr. H. C. Brewster, leader of the Liberal party, ends with
these words: "We appeal to all good citizens to assist us in smashing the machine."
A careful examination of this manifesto reveals a fatal weakness. There is not one word regarding the policy of the Liberal
party should it be returned to power at the elections. It criticizes
the Conservative policy in the past and accuses Sir Richard Mc
Bride's government of corruption, but the electorate will examine
it in vain for enlightenment as to the future or for what sort of
government the Liberals intend to establish on the ruins of the
Conservative "machine" when they have succeeded in smashing it.
It is all very well calling on all good citizens to smash something,
but those good citizens want to know what will take place after the
work of destruction is accomplished. However destructive the
manifesto may be as to the past, the citizens of British Columbia
are chiefly concerned with the future.
The Liberals may retort that for the last year or so they have
been endeavoring to educate the people in their principles so that
when the time came they would be able to appeal to them with
some chance of success. But this manifesto does not advocate any
principles at all. It simply is destructive and spends all its force
on what is past. The Liberals may not like the Conservative railway policy, but they surely do not propose to tear up the rails and
pull down the bridges. Yet that is exactly the sort of thing this
manifesto indicates.
The Liberals can not appeal successfully on a purely destructive or negative platform. The electorate desires above all else a
definite policy." It wants to compare that policy with the policy to
be advocated by Sir Richard McBride. It wants to decide which
is best for the country in the next four years. The electorate
asks for a policy and the Liberals in their manifesto offer it an
expletive. No party can fight an election on an exclamation mark.

Geneva reports that the Germans
are heavily fortifying the valleys of the Largue, between
Moos, St. Louis and Loerraen,
near Lausanne.
London:���The Battle of Neuve
Chapelle is reported by the official
London: it is

Fingal, 661 tons, have been torpedoed. Six lives were lost on
the Fingal.

The enemy is furiously bombarding Nieuport with 16-inch

of Westemle. The German artillery reply in a feeble manner.
Torpedoboat destroyers, which
are protecting the battleships,
-helled a German submarine

the lire of the warships,
Amsterdam: - The Germans
have posted 42-centimetre guns
at Snaeskerke on line from Ostend to Thorout, as well as at
Ypres. There is much activity in
mounting heavy guns in this
region as well as the sending of
troops to the coast to withstand
possible landing parties. This
is taken as an indication that the
German military authorities expect that a forward movement
of the Allies will be directed in
part against the extreme north
of their line. Germans still fear
a British attempt to land soldiers
on the coast of Flanders back of
the German lines and are making preparations for such a movement, says the Echo de Belgi,
now published in this city.
At Snaeskerke there is an increase of two thousand in the
yarrison, while at Heyst a force
of five thousand fresh troops is
expected daily. Reinforcements
are also being sent to Bruges.
Piazensa: ��� A commission of
artillery officers tried out some
of the new 305-millimetre cannon
recently. They said the guns
would be most powerful engines
in making an attack on fortifications. These cannon, together
with others of the same calibre,
are now ready at Genoa for
transportation to l'iazensa.
London, Mar. 18: A heavily
censored despatch from Paris
tells of the magnitude of the
preparations under way by the
Allies preparatory to a big advance. The greatest quantity of
munitions of war ever assembled
has been got together in Northern France. These will be transported to the front by the railroads, the carrying capacity of
which has been increased by the
laying of additional tracks along
every line radiating towards the
front, as well as by thousands of
motor vehicles of every kind,
which have been gathered for
the purpose.
In addition to England's new
army of over one million, which
has been moving across the channel for two months, France has
a million soldiers splendidly
equipped and ready to take the
field at a minute's notice, and
wdio have never yet smelled gunpowder, having been in training
during the winter months.
The artillery brigades are being augmented and thousands of
"Eye-witness." "The Germans
made heroic resistance. Three
Hohenzollern princes are among
the dead. Prisoners say that
the British artillery bombardment was the most terrific during
the entire war. Their are 2,500

York, on Mar. 15, with a cargo
valued at .$5,000,000, on Saturday
ran the German submarine blockade. The vessel reports that she
was chased by three German
submarines while on her voyage.
The interned German liner
Macedonia, which escaped from
Las Palmas, Canary Islands, on
Monday, has been re-captured
by a British cruiser, according to
the Daily Mail's Madrid correspondent. The correspondent
adds that the Spanish government has ordered an investigation
of the ship's escape.
London:���A special telegram
to the Times from Petrograd says
the Russian military authorities
are convinced that some of the
thirty-three German army corps
massed in the eastern theater
of war have already gone to Belgium or France, presumably to
reinforce the troops facing the
British. The despatch says also
that the Germans are probably
sending reinforcements to the
Galician theater, where Russians
have gained a complete mastery
of the situation. Everything
goes to show that owing to these
causes a serious German offensive
in East Prussia must be abandoned.
Several incoming steamers report having been chased by German submarines. The steamer
Glencunny, from Calcutta, reported having escaped one of
these craft, wdiich, officers of the
steamer say, succeeded in sinking another steamer which they
were unable to identify, off
Beachy Head.
Paris (official):���A Zeppelin
airship has dropped some bombs
on Calais, aiming at the railway
station. No serious material
damage was done, but seven
employes were killed.
