IVOL. Ill, NO. 24
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14,  1914
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
lHazelton    Players  Present
Successful Farce in Aid
Of School Fund
The farcical   comedy,   "Turn
'Him Out," which was staged by
'the Hazelton players on Wednesday  night,   was an   unqualified
Isuccess, more than making good
fall advance notices sent out regarding it.    Although  not very
long, the playlet gave many opportunities for clever character
work, which were taken full advantage   of    by   the   different
players.
The performance drew a large
audience, including many from
out of town, and congratulations
were extended on all sides on
the excellent entertainment provided.
After the play the ladies provided refreshments, and dancing
was indulged in till a late hour.
The trustees of the Hazelton
public school wish to thank the
general public for their attendance at the entertainment, which
was in aid of the school funds,
and especially those who were
kind enough to take part in the
staging of the comedy presented;
also the ladles who so kindly undertook the management of the
refreshments.
The amount realized from the
entertainment amounted to one
hundred dollars, after paying all
expenses.
Unrest in Japan
Tokio, Feb. 11:���On Tuesday
a riotous mob attacked the Japanese house of parliament, causing
considerable damage. There is
a general outcry throughout Japan against the government as a
result of graft charges.
Groundhog Survey
Party Equipping
J. E. Ellis, B.C.L.S., arrived
on Wednesday to make arrangements for the trip of T. H. Tav-
lor's surveying party to Groundhog at the end of the month.
There will be twelve men in
the party, including T. H.Taylor,
J. PI Ellis, D. M. Gordon, W.
Bowser, H. Thorne, Otto Strow,
John Strow, Dave Jenkins, a
photographer and a cook.
The party will require eight
dog teams to pack their outfit
and supplies in.
Arms for Mexican Rebels
New Orleans, Feb. 11:���With
the presidential proclamation lifting the embargo on munitions of
war exported to Mexico, a matter of record, Mexican revolutionists in the market for arms and
munitions came out into the open
here today, and announced the
appointment of a purchasing
agent with headquarters here.
The agent opened negotiations
with Eastern houses for rifles,
cartridges and machine guns,
and for great quantities of munitions stored in this city.
Round-the*World Flight
San Francisco, Feb. 9:- -One
million dollars, officials of the
Panama-Pacific Exposition have
announced, is now the prize proposed for the round-the-world
(light in any form of air craft,
starting and finishing on the Exposition grounds.
The project of jumping the
prize money from $:,00,000 to
more than three times thai1
amount, came, as was announced,
from the Aero Uub of America,
and has a string to it, the extension of the time limit, now
set at ninety days. Charles C.
Moore, president of the Exposition, said in a statement tonight
that there was every disposition
to make the conditions as elastic
as possible without hampering
the aims of the race, and this
was confirmed by Arnold Kruck-
man, director of the exposition's
bureau of aeronautics.
As announced here, the idea
of the Aero Club of. America is
to get more time, perhaps thirty
additional days, in which the
world may be circled, lf this
can be done, the co-operation of
over 400 aero clubs the world
over can be secured, the aero
club men report, and the raising
of $1,000,000 without difficulty.
G.T.P. APPEAIDISMISSED
Ottawa, Feb. 9:���The cabinet
on Saturday dismissed the appeal
of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway and confirmed the order of
the Railway Commission in regard to the site of the station at
Fort George.
The Governor-General-in-Coun-
cil, the court of last resort in
matters of this kind, having dismissed the appeal, the Order of
the Board of Railway Commission made last May "that the
Grand Trunk Pacific should
build a station at a point within
3000 feet of the eastern boundary
of Fort George" stands, and the
station must be placed as directed by the board.

The loss is estimated at about
In less than anhourC.V. Smith's
general store and dwelling were
completely destroyed by fire last
Sunday morning. The fire was
discovered at about half past six
by Mrs. Smith, who immediately
gave the alarm, but before the
chemical engines could reach the
scene the fire had gained such
headway that nothing could be
done to save the buildings. Volunteers worked hard to save the
household furniture and succeeded in getting most of it out safely.
The origin of the fire is a mystery, as no fires were left in the
stoves over night.
$11,000, with insurance of $4,200.
Mr. Smith has decided to rebuild at once. The fire was
hardly out before he had men at
work clearing the debris, and by
Wednesday had purchased and
removed to the site of the burnt
dwelling the house formerly occupied by R. J. McDonell. Lumber is now on the ground for
the new store and warehouse,
and the buildings will be rushed
to completion. A stock of goods
is already on the way, and Mr.
Smith expects to be doing business at the old stand in another
week.

Have Taken Option
On Coal Property
For some time past negotiations
have been in progress between
the National Finance Co. and
Aldous & Murray Ltd., with the
result that the latter have secured an option on the noted
Coal creek property on Copper
river, the product of which took
first prize at Prince Rupert fair.
The price is said to be well over
a million. The property produces the best coking coal in the
north and covers an area of well
over sixteen thousand acres, of
which favorable reports have
been made by leading coal authorities who have been over the
ground and examined the seams.
It is not known for whom Aldous
& Murray are acting, but it is
believed the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway are desirous of the coal
lands. Shipment of machinery,
including a new diamond drill
outfit, was sent on from Vancouver on Monday, and the coal
measures will be developed without delay. The sleighroad recently constructed from Smithers
to the property will allow the
machinery to be taken in.
SETTLEMENTOF LAWSUIT
We have learned from a reliable source that the lawsuit between Charles Barrett and E. E.
Charleson, which arose out of the
dissolution of partnership of C.
Barrett & Co., has been settled
out of court. This case has been
in the attorney's hands for over
three years, and has been a bitter fight on both sides. Local
interest centred on this case for
a time when the auditors were
trying to straighten out the
books of the firm.
The company did business in
Hazelton for a number of years,
and the partners were well known
here, both being old timers in
the town.
GREATGAME
Smithers Takes Their First
Defeat in the Ross Cup
Series on Thursday
In a thrilling game the old
town hockey team handed out a
decisive defeat of 6-3 to Smithers
puck chasers on Thursday night,
before a large crowd of supporters, which included nearly one
hundred hockey fans from Smithers.
Jardine started the scoring,
netring a goal for Smithers after
eight minutes of hard play, and
there was no further scoring in
this period. In the second period
North notched the first goal for
the old town a few minutes after
play started. O'Shea followed,
scoring Hazelton's second goal
with a neat shot after an individual rush. Sinclair netted two
more, he and Reber do|ng some
pretty stick work. In the last
period Aldous found the net with
a fine shot from the right wing
after Irwin had broken up the
rush. North and Sinclair got
away immediately after, North
netting the pucK. A considerable
amountoi'slashingandroughwork
was indulged in, Jardine, Keddie
and North being sent off for the
balance of the game, about three
minutes. Aldous went through
for another goal, and Reber
scored the sixth goal for Hazelton after four spectacular rushes
right into the goal mouth, which
the goal keeper was lucky enough
to block.
Every member of the Hazelton team was going at top speed
all the time, and their exertions
were responsible for Smithers'
first defeat this season. The
game was exceptionally fast in
spite of the soft nature of the
ice.

In a very slow game New Hazelton defeated Smithers at New
Hazelton last night by a score of
2-1. The game was played on
very soft ice, and the players had
a couple of inches of slush to
contend with, making the game
very heavy and featureless.

Though the end of the debate on the address at Ottawa found
the Government apparently unmoved in the face of the opposition
demands for tarilf relief, there is a well-defined rumor in circulation
in the capital to the effect that the Government has in view a reduction on the duties of agricultural implements. It is stated that
this will be announced in the coming budget speech. The report is
that the reduction will be equivalent to, or perhaps slightly more
than, that proposed by the reciprocity agreement, which varied
from two and a half to five per cent.
The Ottawa Citizen says:
"The Province of British Columbia is understood to be applying
for the control of the Yukon Territory, a step long contemplated.
No confirmation of the report is obtainable here, but the province
is said to be anxious to annex the territory, the administration of
which by the Dominion involves a financial loss.
"United States railway interests are reported to be waiting for
the obsorption of the Yukon by British Columbia before proceeding
with plans for an all-rail access to Alaska."
The annexation of the Yukon to British Columbia is without
doubt regarded as a live issue at Victoria. Premier McBride, however, stated a few days ago that he had, so far, taken no official
action in the matter.

Transatlantic Flight
London, Feb. 9:���Several experts have expressed views favorable to Lieut. Port's proposed
transatlantic fight.
Thomas Sopwith, the well-
known airman and designer of
the Sopwith waterplane, says it
is a tremendous undertaking,
but with the rapid advance of
science in constructing water-
planes, success is now well within the regions of possibility.
James Valentine says: "Porte
is one of the best men for the
undertaking. Given fair weather,
a good following wind for the
best part of the journey, a fast
machine and good luck, it should
not be an impossible feat."
"When crossing the Atlantic
was first proposed," says B. C.
Huck, "I thought the day of its
accomplishment very remote. I
have changed my opinion now.
The magnificent long - distance
flights of pilots in the last six
months have proved the task
perfectly feasible."
Lieut. Porte is on the flying
staff of White and Thompson
Limited of the aeronautic works
at Bognor. Norman Thompson,
thecompany's managing director,
explains that meteorological conditions make it necessary to start
the flight from the American
side. Therefore the machine
will be built on the spot.
"We have had the best advice
on the weather conditions of the
Atlantic that could be obtained,"
he said. "In August and September you can rely at a certain
height, upon a steady wind blowing toward Ireland at the rate of
thirty or thirty-five miles an
hour. The flight should be made
in one day and is perfectly feasible." 	
Rod and Gun
Rod and Gun of Woodstock.
Ont, has put out an exceptionally
good issue for February, 1914,
both as regards the character of
the reading matter and the quality and interest of the illustrations. That well-known writer
and naturalist, Bonnycastle Dale,
contributes an article entitled the
Bearman, descriptive of a ranch
where bears are successfully raised in captivity. A humoious
strain runs through this story,
a slight departure, but an entertaining one, from this writers
ordinary style. "Prints from
Canadian Trails" is a continuation of the fine series that is being
contributed to this magazine by
H. Mortimer Batten; "The Dominion Parks" as seen by an
American writer, is beautifully
illustrated; Edward Breck writes
under the heading "A Nova
Scotia Discovery" of the excellent caviare that is to be obtained
in that province. A report is
given of the recent annual meeting of the North America Forest,
Fish and Game Protective Association by A. H. Smith; and every
I page of the issue is packed full
' of interest or information for the
i Canadian or American sportsman.

MATERIALS ARRIVING
FOR RUPERT DRYDOCK
Prince Rupert, Feb. 9: -Great
activity is now being manifested
in the $3,000,000 drydock under
construction for tho Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway and steamship
interests. Immense quantities
of steel for structural purposes,
lumber and machinery are arriving weekly, the last being a
1500 ton consignment now being
unloaded from the steamship
Kentra of the Maple Leaf line.
A large crew of steel workers
is also being assembled so that
from now on the erection of the
several buildings will be hastened. The steel frame of the
foundry is finished and that for
the numerous other buildings
will shortly be in place.
The floating drydock according
to plans furnished by William T.
Donnelley will have a lifting capacity of 20,000 tons and is so
designed as to be capable of operating in sections as a number of
smaller docks. With the arrival
of the permanent manager,
Charles N. Covvell, the big undertaking is now being rushed to an
expected early completion.
