HAZELTON WINS
FROM RUPERT
The principal featuresof today's
sports   program   were  two  ball
games  between   Prince   Rupert
and Hazelton.     The  first game,
London:   According to advices which started at eleven this morn-
from Swiss sources,the Austrians | ing, was a good exhibition, though
have suffered another defeat west
of Kapul mountain, in the Carpathians.
Paris: The Entente Allies
have won a series of successes on
the Macedonian front. French,
British and Servian forces, operating at different points, have
broken through the Bulgarian
defences. The French captured
positions half a mile deep on a
front of a mile.
The Bulgarians have given up
the town of Kastoria.
Saloniki; A Greek army corps
of 25,000, which was surrounded
by Bulgarians, surrendered and
was marched off to Germany as
prisoners of war.
Greece is ready to join the
Allies when she can see the
move to be to her advantage.
Petrograd: There are no new
developments on the battlefront
in Russia or Galicia.
On the Caucasus front there is
rather one-sided. Hazelton, with
Donohoe pitching and Graham
Rock behind the hat, got the
long end of a lo 2 score,
The afternoon game was of a
somewhat ragged nature, but afforded plenty of excitement.
Hazelton won by 16 runs to 6.
COMEDY DREW
A BIG AUDIENCE
A crowded house witnessed an
excellent presentation of the
comedy, "What Happened to
Jones," in Assembly Hall last
night. There were several
changes in the cast which appeared in the performances given
last year. The many amusing
situations of the play were well
handled by the actors, and the
audience testified its approval by
unstinted applause.
The Second Collapse
Quebec: The central span of
the new Quebec bridge, which is
to be the largest cantilever structure in the world, collapsed yesterday when being raised into
position. Ten men were killed.
The, loss is $600,000.
Favored by glorious weather,
Hazelton's first annual fair opened yesterday in most auspicious
fashion, with a good crowd in
attendance. The directors of the
association and the various working committees acting with them
have done a great deal of hard
work in preparation for the exhibition, but they must feel
amply repaid hy the success
which is attending the event.
The fair was formally opened
by Alex. Manson, prospective
member for Omineca, who was
introduced by Dr. Wrinch, president of Hazelton Agricultural
and Industrial Association, in a
brief address. Mr. Manson, in
declaring the exhibition open,
expressed great confidence in the
future of the district.
Townspeople ,'tid visitors alike
were pleased with the exhibits,
which numbered 550. The most
striking feature is, perhaps, the
remarkable display of fruit and
flowers, which is quite sufficient
to dispel any prejudice against
the climate or soil of the district.
Especial mention must be made
of the fine apples, cherries, bush
fruits, and tomatoes. Tobacco
plants grown in Hazelton are
also shown.
Much attention was attracted
by the mineral exhibit, which
includes many varieties of ore
from all parts of the district. In
the press of work the directors
have not been able to gather as
large a display as the district
should provide, but there is
enough to show the richness of
our mines.
There is a very good exhibit of
roots, vegetables, grains, etc.
and the livestock and poultry
classes have not been neglected,
although the unavoidable delay
in issuing the premium list militated against the success of this
department.
In the department of domestic
science and ladies' ^ork there is
a splendid display, the fair sex
showing as much interest in the
exhibition as do the men. There
is also a very interesting exhibit
of school work.
A valuable feature of the fair
is the exhibit of the Hazelton
forestry office, which shows, in a
nicely arranged booth, samples
of the various woods produced in
this district, with coast products
for comparison. Forester Allen
and Ranger Chettleburgh are to
be congratulated on their exhibit.
Excellent   refreshments   are
LIBERALS AT THE POLLS
Soldiers' Votes Not Yet In���
Suffrage and Prohibition Win
Vancouver,   Sept. 15:���Yester-|
day's general election resulted in
a sweeping victory for the  Lib-
erals,indications at present, point-
ing to a majority of fifteen  orl
more for the Brewster forces. In |
Vancouver M. A. Macdonald heads j
the poll, with 7126 votes.     Premier Bowser polled 5463,and will
lose  his spat unless the soldiers' j
vote gives him a majority.     The
other ministers,   excepting Hon.
W. R, Ross, are defeated, on the
face of the returns.    As many of
the majorities are small,   it   is
probable that the soldiers' vote,
when ccunted, will change the
decision in some constituencies,
but it is not likely that the general result will be affected. The
number of soldiers from B. C.
who have voted is estimated at
20,000.
Woman suffrage was carried by
an overwhelming majority,every
constituency voting for the measure.
Prohibition also had a large
majority. So far as the returns
have been made public, the Drys
have won by 7500 votes.

tent, where the ladies yesterday
realized a nice sum for the
society.
Stuart J, Martin, the honorary
secretary of the association,spent
a strenuous day yesterday. His
office is located in the middle of
the row of tents. The location
of tbe exhibits is excellent, and
all arrangements are so good as
to elicit commendation from the
department officials.
The government officials who
act-'d as judges in the agricultural, horticultural and livestock
classes were H. E. Walker, J. H.
McCullough, George Hay, and
A. R. Neale. Mrs. Williscroft
and Mrs. Williams judged the
ladies' work, domestic science
and school exhibits, and J. G.
Powell and E. C. Annes selected
winning exhibits in the mineral
section.
A list of prize-winners will be
published in our next issue.

The Keeping of Bee*
The saying that 'the resources
of Canada are inexhaustible' is
true of no food products more
than honey. An abundance of
honey-yielding: flowers, with a
high average of favorable weather for the production and ingathering of thehoney.makes Canada
a good country for the bee-keeper. Moreover, the bulk of Canadian honey is of unsurpassed
quality, and honey has become,
as it deserves to be, a staple article of food in many places,
selling readily at satisfactory
prices when properly distributed.
So states Dominion Apiarist F.
W. L. Sladen, in Bulletin No. 26
(second series), just issued, that
can be had free on application to
the Publications Branch of the
Department of Agriculture at
Ottawa. Mr. Sladen furnishes
the further information that in
Ontario and Quebec and in regions
in the other provinces of the,
Dominion, there is an increasing
number of people who make bee-
keeping their principal business,
some of the specialists in Ontario
reaping an income in excess of I
$2,500 a year, while there are!
thousands who find it a profitable
and healthful auxiliary to their
annual revenue. In Ontario alone
it is estimated that there are
10,000 bee-keepers. Mr. Sladen, I
after dealing with the advantages'
of bee-keeping, and extending
instructions and advice to beginners, proceeds to deal with the
different elements involved in
bee-keeping and honey productions.   In a plain concise way he
I!IH,i!l;lll!!lll!llllll
The people of British Columbia have evidently decided to give
the Liberals a chance to administer the affairs of this province.even
though that party has not put forward anything that can be called
a definite platform. As this is written, the returns indicate that
Brewster's followers, after many years in the cold shades of
opposition, are to bask in the sunshine for a time. With a fair
working majority���and that is practically certain the former
opposition party will have an opportunity to put into effect its much
heralded policy of abolishing party patronage. Will the Liberals
do it ?
And what   attitude   will   the! .
Brewster administration take in
the matter of the famous writ? j
Will  the new government still
hold that the legislation passed
after March 14 is still illegal? If I
so, how can the new members'
take their seats?   The legislation
under   which the election  was I
held was passed after the house,
by the Brewster reckoning, was j
dissolved.   There are other inter-
eating questions with which the j
wise men of the Liberal party i
will have to deal.and the country I
will watch their movements with
tells of the location the apiary
should be given, the most desirable races, the development and
handling of the bees,the diseases
and enemies to which they are
subject, and the attention they
need at different seasons of the
year. He also gives a list, with
descriptive illustrations, of the
principal honey-producing plants
with their approximate yielding
periods. In fact, it would seem
that pretty well everything worth
knowing about cultivation and
management of the honey bee is
detailed in this handy 6 8-page
official bulletin or pamphlet published for gratuitous circulation.
From an area of 420 acres
$68,000,000 in metals has been
produced in the 20 years since
Rossland mines were first opened
up. They are now employing
750 men.

Omineca's Minerals
An earnest of the increase in

expected from Omineca division
is seen in the fact that the value

$12,000 as compared with $6000
in 1914; of lode gold $32,301
against $4,196, and of copper
$489,245,in comparison with only
$1097 for the two,years 1913 and
1914 combined. Given during
the remainder of this year similar
production to that of the first six

reason to expect a considerable
