A Happy and Prosperous
New Year To All
Local and District News Notes
MAY PLAY HOCKEY
WITH PRINCE RUPERT
On Christmas Day a number
of hockey players turned out to
try the ice on the new rink, and
Captain Ham was on deck to fret
a line on his team material. The
ice was somewhat rough, but a
little more sprinkling will put it
in good condition for skating and
hockey.
Arrangements are being made
with the Prince Rupert hockey-
ists, who have asked for a game
with Hazelton, and who may
come up for New Year's eve. A
match with the coast players
would not only draw a good
crowd, but would greatly help
the team, giving the players a
good practice before the big
game with Smithers on Jan. 3.
S.S,
PRINCE GEORGE
MEETS WITH MISHAP
New  uaZelton   at
Vancouver, Dec. 22:���Southbound in a dense fog off Vancouver harbor, the steamer Prince
George went aground near Siwash
Rock on Saturday evening. She
was running slowly at the time
and the shock was not heavy.
There was a little excitement
among the passengers, but this
was soon quieted. The tug Salvor of Victoria went to the assistance of the disabled boat and
took the passengers off.
At ten o'clock when the tide
came up the George got off and
proceeded to Victoria, where she
will be overhauled.

on a trip of inspection to the end
of steel.
J. M. MacCormick and R. J.
Rock returned on Sunday from
Smithers, where they attended
the hockey league meeting as
delegates from Hazelton.
A slight improvement is reported today in the condition of
Mrs. E. E. Orchard, of Telkwa,
who was brought to the Hospital
on Sunday, suffering from pneumonia.
Dr. L. B. Badgero, who is
building up a fine dental practice
in this district, will be in Hazelton for a couple of weeks. He
has opened an office next to
Wrathall's store.
A request comes from the publicity department of the Prince
Rupert board of trade for an exhibit of ores, coal, and agricultural products of this district, for
display in the permanent exhibition to be maintained by the
board at Rupert. Carriage
charges on exhibits will be paid
by the board.
F. A. Brewer returned yesterday from a business visit to Van
couver and Seattle. He reports
a much more confident feeling in
the coast cities and good prospects for renewed activity in
financial circles. Coast people,
he says, are looking to this district for big development in the
near future.
ln a letter to The Miner, Rev.
John Field and Mrs. Field, who
are travelling in England, send
hearty greetings to their many
friends in Hazelton and the district. Mr. Field says: "We shall
always have pleasant remembrances of the place where we
spent so many happy years, and
of the great kindness we received
there."

Last night's dance, given by
the athletic association as a hockey benefit, not only augmented
the funds of the team, but also
afforded an evening's enjoyment
to a large crowd of dancers, in
eluding quite a number from
New Hazelton. Teddy Quinn
furnished excellent music, the
floor was in good condition, and
as refreshments were supplied
by the ladies there was nothing
lacking to make the affair the
most enjoyable of the holiday
ueason..    . -

Unexpected Death
Of John Dorsey
(From the SmitherB Review)
John Dorsey died here on Sun-
dav morning, of pneumonia,  aggravated by heart trouble.
Of all the pioneers who have
had their part in the development of the great interior
country, there was none better
known than John Dorsey, and
none could see better than he
the great future that lay before
this district. Coming to the
Bulkley Valley in its early days,
Dorsey soon became infected wiili
the spirit of optimism, and he
was never tired of spreading
broadcast the news of the
country's resources. He made
money and spent it. Gifted with
a constructive imagination, he
planned many enterprises, whicr
others must no w carry out Lack -
ing the faculty of concentration,
John Dorsey did not reap th<
financial gains that should hav��
rewarded his plans. For some
months he had been engaged in h
merchandise and transportation
business on Francois lake, in
which he had been successful.
Exposure, however brought on
an attack of pneumonia, made
more serious by the weakness of
his heart, He was on his way
to Hazelton Hospital for treatment, but reached Smithers in
such a weakened condition that
the physicians refused to allow
his removal on Sunday morning
Death occurred shortly before
noon.
The funeral  will  be held
Telkwa on Sunday afternoon.
Kelliher Says April
Montreal, Dec. 23:-R. B. Kelliher, chief engineer of the
G. T. P., states that the line will
be completed in April, connection
being made at a point about one
hundred miles west of Fort
George. He and J. W. Stewart
are here consulting with the
officials of the road.
MANY DEAD IN
PANIC
Miscreant Gives False Alarm
of Fire at Entertainment
In Michigan
Calumet, Mich., Dec. 23:���
Seventy-four persons were killed
and many others injured tonight
in a panic at the Christmas tree
exercises given for the children
of the striking copper miners of
this district. Some one shouted
"Fire" and a terrible scer,e resulted. In the frenzied rush for
the door, the crowd trampled to
death 37 girls, 19 boys, 13 women, and five men. There was no
fire. The man who created the
panic escaped. Rumor connects
him with the strike, but of this
there is no proof.
ai
CRISIS PAST, SAYS
PREMIER BURDEN
Montreal. Dec. 26:���Hon. L.
R. Borden, in an address here,
said the financial crisis had
passed. It had only been a temporary phase in the progress of
the country, which would soon
see a brighter period than ever.
Threatened Postal Strike
London, Dec. 23:- Sabotage
in the movement among postal employees which has been actively propagated by the extremists, has assumed such proportions as to constitute a grave
danger not only to the safe conduct of the mails, but to the
trade union movement in the service.
A member of the extremists'
committee declared yesterday
that whether the national committee of the postal association
decides to take a strike ballot or
Montreal, Dec 23:���Premier
Borden was a guest at the Travelers Club last night. In an address during the course of the
evening he made reference to the
financial condition of the country
and said he was confident the
worst was passed. The country
was now passing through a period of recuperation. Notwithstanding the strides Canada had
made in the past the country is
now on the threshold, of still
greater development.
MULVIHILL OBTAINS
REPRIEVE OF MONTH
Vancouver, Dec. 23:���Justice
Murphy today granted a reprieve
of one month to Jerry Mulvihill.
who was sentenced to be hanged
at Kamloops on Monday for the
murder of Ed. Kelly following a
quarrel at Freeport, Burns lake.
Mulvihill is appealing for a new
trial, on the ground that new
evidence was introduced at the
trial without notice to the defence.
Increase in Immigration
Ottawa. Dec. 23:��� The total
immigration during the first eight
months, April to November, of
the current fiscal year, was 340,-
899, made up of 132,461 British,
89,270 American and 122,166
from all other countries. During
the eight corresponding months
of the last fiscal year the total
number was 321,058, composed
of 126,813 British, 108,035 American and 88,210 from all other
countries. The increase is six
per cent.
Ottawa, Dec. 26:���It is reported that Premier Borden has again
declined the  honor  of  knighthood.   Hon. Robert Rogers may I wh"ence they
receive    knighthood    at    New'
Years.
Big Christmas Expenditure
London, Dec. 23:-It is estimated that Great Britain has expended $190,000,000 in Christmas
festivities. Of this amount
$125,000,000 was spent for gifts.
Wireless Development
London, Dec. 23:--The newest
development in wireless telegraphy was demonstrated at the
exhibition at the physical society
of London in the Imperial college
of Science yesterday. This invention aims at the detection of
the direction from which a message comes.
No one has yet discovered how
to send wireless rays, like a
searchlight, in any definite direction. They go out everywhere,
but even though they cannot be
directed, it is just possible that a
ship will be able to find out
come. This is done
by a wonderful instrument shown
by the Marconi Company at the
exhibition.

zones, both on land and sea,
which will be closely watched by
the various governments.
The sea control would be the
most difficult, but the countries
to whom this would principally
fall are the United States, England and Russia, and they have
already taken certain initiatives
towards the protection of animal
life.
The movement is faced with
the strenuous opposition of strong
business interests, for the capital
engaged in the whaling, fur,
feather and ivory trades may be
counted in hundreds of millions.
The feather industry declares!
that if the birds of paradise were
preserved, 50,000 workers would
be idle.
if the general discussion of the increased and increasing cost
of living serves no other useful purpose, it will at least direct attention anew to the feature of modern development which is undoubtedly the cause of higher prices for foodstuffs���the failure of
the food-producing industries to keep pace with the development
of the cities. While the rural population in Canada, as in other
countries, shows a very low rate of increase, the urban population
has increased enormously, being (12 per cent, greater, as reported
by the last census, than ten years previously. In parts of Eastern
Canada, the farming population even shows a decrease, while the
influx of settlers in the West has been only sufficient to increase
the rural population of the Dominion 17 per cent. This means that
the city dwellers, the consumers of farm products, have increased
nearly four times as fast as the producers. That this condition of
affairs is likely to prove a serious menace to the prosperity of the
nation goes without saying.
The census figures relating to livestock and poultry bear out
the theory that the unbalanced increase in population is responsible
for increased  prices.     During the years that the population has i   .
been increasing so rapidly, the livestock industry has been actually lial condition of the   province
declining.     In  1008  the  number of milch  cows  in  Canada was'
2,917,740. and in 1912 it was only 2,890,100.     Other cattle showed
a still  heavier decline.     In  1903  the  figures were 4.629,836, and
last year had dropped to 4,093,600.    The sheep industry is declining
as rapidly.    In I9(i8 there were 2,831,404 sheep, and last year there
were only  2,360,600.      The number of swine shows a still greater
decrease from 3,369,858, to 2,654,400.
Take the question of eggs. In 1891 there were three hens in
Canada for every one of our population. In 1901 the ratio was
about the same. In 1911 the ratio was about four to one. Ten
years ago 73,000,000 eggs were consumed in Canada. Last year
we consumed 143,000,000.
In view of the figures given, it is no wonder that prices of
food have advanced. To find a remedy for the condition which
confronts us will'be a difficult matter. Tariff tinkering will be of
no avail, and it seems doubtful if any legislative measures would
be of benefit. An extension of the movement for the settlement s?
and development of our great unused farming areas would appear
to be the only practicable step, and we look to see such action
taken as a result of the work of the federal commission which is
beginning the investigation of the problem.
Lumbermen's Convention
Vancouver, Dec. 17:���Hon. W.
J. Bowser and Hon. W. R.   Ross
delivered  notable addresses   at
the close of the  convention  of |
lumbermen of British  Columbia,
Washington and Oregon, held in
connection   with   the   Western
Forestry   Conservation   association.     The attorney-general reviewed  the progress and financial condition of  the   provina
from a condition of virtual bankruptcy ten years ago, to its present sound and prosperous condition.    Mr.   Ross,   responding to
the toast of "Forestry under two
flags" gave a brilliant review of
his department's many activities
in developing the resources of the
province.   The next  convention
of the association will be held in
Tacoma.   The 1915 meeting will
be in San Francisco.

Premier on Exclusion Order
Victoria, Dec. 21:���Premier
McBride did not care to discuss
the question as to whether the
recent Ottawa order-in-council
prohibiting the admission of ar-
tizan and laboring immigrants
up to March 31 covered Chinese.
He said he believed that certainly if it could be found practicable,
the order-in-council ought to include Chinese.
"I am not prepared to offer an
opinion as to whether such an
order-in-council as this transcends the Dominion statute respecting the entrance of Chinese,
and I suppose the doubt as to the
powers of the order-in-council
raises the suggestion that Chinese are not prevented from coming in," he added.
"I may say, for the Provincial
Government, that we reiterate
former statements that we are
against the entrance into British
Columbia of any Orientals. I believe that the policy Mr. Borden
had in mind, when the recent order-in-council was passed, was
the exclusion from British Columbia of all laboring and all artizan
immigrants, Oriental and white.
In our stand against the entrance
of Orientals we mean no offence
to the governments across the
Pacific. Let them legislate
against the settlement in their
countries of Canadians, jf they
wish. Our declaration simply
stands for the protection of British Columbia against the the influx of the Chinese, Japanese and
Hindu workers.
"Without wishing to offer any-
thingwhichmay embarrass either
Ottawa or the Colonial office in
London, it is my hope that some
arrangement may be made to the
effect that the action outlined in
the recent order-in-council may
be applicable to Chinese as well
as to the other immigrants, both
yellow and white. At the present time our laboring men need
protection, as it were, against
the entrance of all other workers,
in these times when work is not
plentiful."
