Vancouver,"April 29:���A partially successful attempt was
made early this morning to destroy the Connaught bridge over
False Creek. The structure,
which cost $300,000, was serious-
damaged. The'Granville-street
bridge was also set on fire, but
little damage was done. The
fires were started at four a. m.,
during a gale of wind.
Considerable excitement has
been caused by the outrage,
which is believed to have been
the work of alien enemies, who
are reported to be celebrating
the loss of Canadian troops in
Vancouver, April 30:���Four
Germans, Baron von Luttowitz,
Dr. Otto Grumert, Paul Koop,
and Frederich Spritzel have been
arrested and sent to the detention
To Enlarge Cemetery
At the instance of Government
Agent Hoskins a meeting of
citizens of Hazelton was held in
the schoolhouse on Tuesday evening, to consider the cemetery
question. After a full discussion
it was decided to take steps to
secure the additional ground for
cemetery purposes, adjoining the
present cemetery, and R. S. Sargent was elected the citizens'
representative, to co - operate
with Indian Agent Loring in
preparing a proposition for submission to the provincial secretary and the Indian commission.
An Omineca Bulletin
One of the most important
mining bulletins yet ifsued by the
provincial bureau of mines is now
being circulated from Victoria.
It deals with the mineral resources of the district tributary
to Hazelton at considerable
length. Space is also devoted to
a number of other quartz mining
districts in southern Omineca.
The bulletin is illustrated and
contains a number of diagrams
and sketches, as well as a map
of the Hazelton section, adding
considerably to its value. From
a glance through the report it is
evident that the assistant mineralogist, John I). Galloway, whose
work it is, has been greatly impressed by the mineral and other
resources of this district.
London, May 1:~No change is I
reported today on the section of
the battlefront held by the Brit-
ish forces. The French official
report says progress has been j
made on the whole front between I
Ypres and the sea, the advances!
varying from one third to two-:
thirds of a mile. The French'
have taken two successive lines!
of trenches and captured a great
many prisoners.
The report that Dunkirk had
been bombarded by German ships
was unfounded. The shelling
was from long range land batteries, which fired ten more shells
yesterday, killing several victims.
British aviators are reported to
have located and attacked the
batteries, twenty miles away.
Paris, May 1:���The reason for
the suspension of traffic between
England and Holland, which gave
rise to rumors of a naval battle
in the North Sea, has been disclosed in a report telling of the
capture or destruction of eight
German submarines during the
week. They were decoyed out
by a report of the retirement of
the British fleet.
Today the admiralty allows the
resumption of trade, but passengers may not be carried until the
routes are cleared.
Four Zeppelins flew over the
town of Lowestoft last night, but
did no damage, according to the
unofficial reports.
Amsterdam: The coast batteries  at Zeebrugge, the German
base on the Belgian coast, were
heavily engaged from 9:30 last
night to one o'clock this morning
replying to the fire of British
warships. A thick mist prevented the ships from being seen, but
that their work was effective is
inferred from the numerous
(ires which rose about Zeebrugge.
London: Co-operating with
the fleet, four British armies are
making a converging movement
between Gallipoli and Maidos, in
in the Dardanelles littoral, where
the main Turkish army is likely
to be hemmed in. It is now impossible for the Turks to return
to the mainland or cross the
straits. The Queen Elizabeth
sank a transport which attempted
the crossing.
R. S. Sargent is in Prince Rupert, on business.
Rocher de Boule Ships
An earnest of the season's
mining activity was the shipment
of thirteen cars of gold-copper
ore from the Rocher de Boule
mine to the Granby smelter at
Anyox. The ore arrived at
Prince Rupert on Sunday and
was received in the newly-completed bunkers on Monday.
The price of copper is rising,
and the owners of the mine are
confident that the largeoperations
which they have undertaken will
be justified by the results of
their shipments. A large force
of men is now employed in and
about the mine.
Ottawa, April 26:���Twenty-one
killed and fifty-nine wounded is
the toll taken upon our Canadian
officers in the heavy fighting on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday,
which, according to reports, is
still going on. A list issued last
night contains the names of the
twenty-one officers killed, including three colonels, viz., Lieut.-
Col. Hart Mcllarg, commanding
the seventh battalion, of Vancouver; Lieut.-Col. Arthur Percival
Birchall. of the Canadian Permanent Staff and Lieut.-Col.
Russell Lambert Boyle, of Cross-
field, Alberta, commanding the
tenth battalion. The list is
admittedly incomplete, as there
are no artillery officers mentioned, though a battery of Canadian
six-inch guns was taken by the
Germans and later recaptured.
London, April 20:-The following is a statement issued today
by the Belgian Legation: "The
town of Luzerne (Belgium), west
of Ypres, which was captured by
the enemy on Friday night, has
been retaken by Franco Belgian
troops. Our artillery has replied
successfully to a fire directed at
the whole length of our front by
German batteries. Our aviators
have been able to make useful
reconnaissances, notwithstanding
a very strong wind"
London:���The city is aflame
with the story of how the Canadians saved the day at great cost.
It is believed the death toll exceeds a thousand officers and
Vancouver:- The city is mourning today for the gallant heroes
fallen at Langemarck. The killed include Lieut.-Col. VV. Hart
McHarg; Lapt. Cecil Merritt,
son-in-law to Sir Hibbert Tupper
and Capt. Maxwell Fleming.
The wounded include Major God
son-Godson and Lieuts. Hibbert
Tupper, S. D. Armour, G. Ken-
worthy, Victor'McLean, S. H.
Goodall, A. G. Spencer, G. H.
Davis and A. L. Lindsay.
Col. Hart McHarg was a lawyer in Vancouver. He served in
the African war as a private. He
won the Prince of Wales' prize,
the Governor-General's prize and
the world's rifle shot championship last year.
Paris, April 26 (official):��� "In
Belgium our counter attacks are
progressing successfully in close
co-operation with our allies. The
Germans, woo attacked us with
two army corps, continued to use
asphyxiating shells. Some of
their projectiles which failed to
explode were found to contain
a quantity of these gases. We
have made considerable progress
towards the north, on the right
bank of the Yser canal. The
British troops, notwithstanding
violent attacks by the enemy on
Saturday evening, have on our
right maintained their positions.
In Argonne we took a German
trench, captured two machine
guns and made some prisoners.
The action was of a most violent
character. On the Heights of
Meuse, at the Oolonne trench,
the enemy made an attack with
an entire division on a front of
one kilometer (about two-thirds
of a mile). At first we were
compelled to fall back but they
were completely driven out by a
counter attack."
Paris, April 20 (official):���Two
German attacks in Belgium have
been repulsed by the British.
The enemy has bombarded Ypres
violently. In violent fighting in
Meuse and at Les Eparges the
enemy were repulsed.
Athens: -The Allied warships
have captured the Turkish steam
ers Virginia and Madda carrying
contraband. They .--ere flying
the Ameni.vSati.fag wnSfi captured
and taken to Lemnos.
London, April 27:���The correspondent of the Daily News,
writing from Northern France,
says everywhere in the department of the Pais de Calais, that
"praises of the gallant Canadians
are being sung. In the crucible
of most intense heat they have
not been found wanting."
The correspondent goes on to
say that the "wounded Canadians
who came down to the base today -and there are many hundreds of them���were in high
spirits, though many of them
assuredly will never fight again.
These men respect the Germans
as a fighting machine, pure and
simple. Over the German's
humanity they just shrug their
I shoulders expressively.
"They tell how, in  the great
iSteenstraete light, they had to
retire for a spell during the
thick of the tumult, leaving their
wound��d troops. They found
all their wounded comrades bayoneted to death. Their revenge
for this was swift and terrible.
At the point of their own bayonets they took only two Germans
alive. The Canadians broke all
conventional rules of warfare in
their operations. They found
Germans wheeling all around
them, both behind and in front
of their trench. Instantly they
adapted themselves to the situation and fitted up a double-ended
trench to meet the trouble.
They were surrounded, enfiladed
land hemmed in on all sides, but
little did it avail the enemy.
Yelling their war cry, they rallied and fought back to back
with infinite courage and dash,

No. 35
Premier Borden has taken a firm stand with regard to graft in
transactions with the government. In his speech on the subject
he said: "I think some of the most cynical passages that were ever
uttered in the presence of members of the public accounts committee
have been uttered upon oath by some of the men who have been
brought before that committee during the past six weeks; by men
who did not hesitate to testify that they were defrauding the country, knew that they were defrauding this country and rejoiced at
the opportunity. So far as those men are concerned I want to say
two things: If the laws of this country permit the courts of justice
to enforce'restitution against them, that restitution will be enforced.
If the laws of this country permit the walls of the penitentiary to
encircle them, they will go there."
On this subject the Financial Post, an independent journal, has,
this to say: "A new standard in Canadian politics has been set this
week. Since Confederation, party leaders have tacitly excused
graft as a social evil that could not be prevented. Heelers regarded
and demanded it as recompense for services rendered. In consequence, millions of dollars of national money have gone in this
way to grafters and form today part of our national debt.
"Party influence has always been so strong that no leader
could openly denounce the practice. If we mistake not, Sir John
Macdonald was not able to do more than drop the offenders from
the cabinet and his list of friends.
"This week, however, the prime minister, in his speeCn in the
house, which left no doubt as to his sincerity, condemned the
practice, read out of the Conservative party his colleagues and
supporters involved in the graft, insisted on restitution, asked the
department of justice to see whether the law cannot put them
behind prison bars and promised further investigations. He also
announced the establishment of a government purchasing department."
