ENTENTE FIGHTING TWO
MUD CONSPIRES AGAINST THEM IN FRANCE
-RUSSIAN RETROGRADE MOVE CONTINUES
London: Fighting as much
against the engulfing sea of mud
as against the enemy, the British
are still consolidating their gains
by local attacks today.
The weather has slightly improved, but massed infantry
actions are practically out of the
question. Our artillery is pounding the German line. Early |
today further counter-attacks by
picked German forces on several
points of the front were thrown
back.
Reports from Holland declare
that the Teutons are moving
their headquarters in Flanders
further east.
According to official communiques 420 airplanes were lost on
the western front jn July. Of
these the enemy lost 291.
Belgian front.
Rome: Large squadrons of
Ital.au airplanes yesterday effectively bombarded the arsenal and
military works of Pola, the chief
naval station of Austro-Hungary.
Berlin: Czernowitz, the capital of Bukowina, has been captured by the Teutonic forces.
Petrograd : Kimpolung, in
Bukowina, has been evacuated
by the Russians, who are'now
engaged with the Austro-German
forces on the Bystritza river.
Between the Dniester and the
Pruth, the Russian retirement
continues.
Paris: Troops of the German
crown prince, after an intense
artillery bombardment, last night
delivered several violent attacks
against the French positions near
Cerny, in the Aisne region. All
attacks were repulsed.
Bad weather continues on the
Washington: Big operations
in the Balkan theater are expected soon.
According to positive information received here, Germany had
possession of Austria's ultimatum
to Serbia fourteen hours before
it was delivered in Belgrade.
New York: More than 75
per cent of Americans called up
for national army examinations
claim   exemption,   according   to
press reports from all parts of
the country. Disqualifications
for physical disability vary considerably, running much higher
in the big cities than in towns
free from congestion. Most of
the exemption claims are based
on the plea of "dependents."
TO INSTALCONCENTRATOR
Silver   Standard   Will   Increase
It's Ore Production by 'Additional Plant
Chicago: Canada would be
one of the first prizes demanded
by Germany were she victorious
in the war, is the opinion of
ex-president Taft, who is on his
way west to speak on "Why We
are at War". The Monroe doctrine, he said, would be worthless and the indemnities demanded would bankrupt the Allies for
years.
Amsterdam: Russia and Austria are "on the verge of an
understanding," according to a
declaration attributed to presi-
dent'Huysman of the international Socialist bureau.
Zurich: The central powers
expect to draw one hundred carloads of cereals from the occupied territory of Roumania.
FALL FAIR WILL
BE ABANDONED
At an executive meeting of the
Hazelton Agricultural and Industrial Association held on Monday
evening it was decided to forego
the fall fair this year, owing
principally to the doubtful amount of support that it would be
accorded through the great depletion in the population of this
district by the war. The association, however, intends to devote its energies in furthering
the request of the Commission of
Conservation for greater production on farm lands and the furtherance of general economy.
Defeat the submarine and the
war will be ended. So declared
Admiral Jellicoe, in reviewing
the naval situation. The underwater craft are admittedly the
only remaining hope of Germany.
More patrol boats are needed to
join the hunters, asserted the
first sea lord.
Petrograd : General Alexis
Brussiloff, cbmmader-in-chief of
the Russian armies, has resigned,
and will be succeeded by General
Korniloff.
The Golden Wonder
M. ' W. Sutherland, who is
directing operations on the Golden Wonder group, near Car-
naby, was in town this week.
He reports active development on
the property, and says that a
shipment of the high-grade copper ore of the vein uncovered on
the Golden Wonder will be made
to the Ladysmith smelter when
his ore sacks arrive.
Survey Camp Moves
The Federal government geological survey party under J. J.
O'Neil, which has been encamped for some time at Two-Mile
Creek, and which has been surveying a fifteen-mile strip of
territory taking in Rocher de
Boule and Nine-mile mountains,
concluded their operations on the
former this week, and will shortly shift their camp to Bear
river, where they will continue
their work.
SIDEWALKS ARE
A GREAT DANGER
Ottawa: Two meatless days
a week in Canada are recommended by the food controller.
All railway systems, including
hotels, telegraphs, elevators, express and steamers, will come
under government control under
Sir Thomas White's new plan.
At a general meeting of Hazelton Progress Club on Thursday
evening, among other business
dealt with was the question of
the present condition of the sidewalks in Hazelton. It was decided to take the matter up with
the provincial government. As
the boardwalks now lie, in their
rotted state, they are a constant
menace and an actual danger to
the limbs of the citizens, and are
a disgrace and detriment to the
progress of the town, and any
appropriation made by the government could not be more usefully spent than in their  repair.
Herre Hasse, minority Socialist
leader, accuses Michaelis of feeding the German people on fallacious reports. He says that the
chancellor was appointed as the
nominee of the general staff.
The feeling among the masses is
that a republic must come.
General Maurice says that we
cannot count much on Russia
and that the burden must fall on
the other Allied powers.
W. G. Norrie, manager of the
Silver Standard mine, returned
on Wednesday from the coast,
where he has been for some
weeks on business connected
with the mine. He states that
the company has decided and
will commence upon the construction of a concentrating plant
at the property.
The completion of the mill will
put this mine���the pioneer shipper of silver-lead ore in this district���in a position to operate on
a much more extensive basis
than has been practicable heretofore.
The news that -i concentrator
will be built locally is most gratifying for the whole district, for
if, as is expected, arrangements
are made whereby the ores of
properties other than the Silver
Standard will be treated at the
company's mill, a new era of
activity in mining on the north
side of the Bulkley should ensue,
as there are a number of properties in the neighborhood of the
mine and on Nine-mile mountain
remaining idle owing to their
inability to ship their ores profitably under the high rates demanded by the railroads for
freight and treatment charges of
the smelters. These handicaps
will be removed when it becomes
posssible to ship the silver-lead
ores in the form of concentrates.
WILL COMMEMORATE
WAR ANNIVERSARY
(T
*\
Resolved that on this the
Third anniversary of the
declaration of a righteous
war, this meeting of citizens
of Hazelton records its inflexible determination to
continue to a victorious end
the struggle in maintenance
of those ideals of Liberty
and Justice which are the
common and sacred cause
of the Allies.
J
Instead of the usual gathering
held for the past two years on
August 4 in Hazelton, this year
a similar anniversary meeting
will be called tomorrow evening,
August 5, in Assembly Hall, at 8
o'clock, to renew our determination to conclude this war victoriously for the rights and liberties
of the world and to endorse the
stand of the Allies under the
above resolution.
A number of short addresses
will be made and solos rendered.
As all church services for tomorrow   evening  are  cancelled
it is hoped that everybody will,
be present and join in the vote
on the resolution.
The collection will be divided
among the various war funds.
All are most cordially invited.

Saturday, August 4, 1917
No. 49
JUST three years ago the British Empire embarked  upon a  war
of  righteousness,   in   the protection of a sacred treaty signed
by herself and by other nations, some her Allies and  others
now her enemies, for the preservation of the liberties of smaller
nationalities too weak to protect themselves.
After two years of varying fortunes, the third year of the war i
opened auspiciously for the nations arrayed against the Teutons with i
a Russian offensive being carried out successfully by the Russians;
in Bukowina, a Franco-British "push" recovering a large strip of I
occupied French territory, the capture of Goritz,the key to Trieste,
by the Italians, and the declaration of war by Roumania upon the
centra] powers and the occupation of Austrian border forts by thej
Roumanian troops.
The past year too has seen many vicissitudes, but with the!
Teutonic allies forced to take the defensive on most fronts and thej
better funds of-resource in men, money and munitions and the!
superior organization powers of the Allies, the tide can be said to!
have turned definitely in favor of the Entente, whose forces are j
fighting for the liberty and democracy of the world.
Perhaps the most striking event, epoch making in its way, was
the deposition of Czar Nicholas of Russia and the establishment of
a republic in a country in which it was thought that rule by absolute
monarchs was most strongly entrenched. Russia is having her
troubles by this transition, and the enemy has taken a natural
German advantage of the situation to sow seeds of discord, but a
"strong man" has been fortunately found in Kerensky, who, it is
thought,  wi
isls, ex-Imperial service, naval
men, etc., and 59 C.E.F. men
who have been discharged before going overseas.
There are 708 men undergoing
treatment in the commission's
institutions in B. O, and 68 men
belonging to this province have
been diverted to the commission's
institutions in other provinces.
That good service has been
rendered by the Dominion commission's B.C. branches is evidenced by the fact that civil
employment has been found for
623 men; of these, 591 are men
returned from overseas and 32
men who have not been overseas.
In addition a number of men
have re-enlisted���59 for overseas
duty, 45 for home guard duty,
and three for naval service.
The committee's files show but
five unfilled applications for employment, but it must be borne
in mind that these are not necessarily the only returned soldiers
in the province unemployed, for
the work of the commission is to
endeavor to provide employment
for those returned men who
apply through the local   commit-

London: Hritish airmen again
have displayed their supremacy
in air righting by driving to earth
thirty-one enemy machines, losing
but three themselves. German
airdromes were bombed and val-.
liable photographs taken. Daring,
Briiish aviators swoop low far
behind the enemy battle lines.
Considerable artillery activity,
continues on both sides at various j
points along our front, especially,
north of the river Lys.
Paris: German planes made a
raid last night on Paris,dropping
bombs on a hospital, killing three I
and injuring several. , It is be-J
lieved the Germans are testing
the possibility of bombarding
Paris.
Petrograd:   The extraordinary!
Russian national congress at Mos- ���
cow   will be postponed, owing to j
the desire of the provisional gov-1
ernment to reconstruct the cab-
inot with stronger men,including J
members   of   the   constitutional
democratic party.    The frontiers!
are tightly sealed,   only   persons
holding  diplomatic passports being permitted to cross the boundary.
An embargo will be placed on
all importations.
From the Baltic coast to the
Pripet river fusillades and scouting reconnaisances are reported.
In Galicia there is nothing to
report.
Rome:   Artillery engagements)
were  very  brisk  yesterday  be-1
tween Zuga 'Porta and  the  Arsa
valley.     An Italian air squadron j
dropped three tons of explosives
on the enemy  positions.     Austrian mines exploded harmlessly.
Washington: General Pershingi
has inspected trenches in France, i
Neutrals will feed Germany no
more. Within a few days thei
American plan of rationing the
neutrals will deprive the Hun of
his greatest source of supply.
All Allied subjects will come
under the American draft.
Ambulance section No 18 of
the American field service left
Paris yesterday for the front.
Amsterdam: German workers
are anxious for peace.

The big guns are roaring on a
front of thirty-three miles in
Flanders, and the concentration!
of batteries is enormous. British
raiding forces are busy from
Cambrai to north of Ypres.
General   Korniloff   is  dealing
with  the  problem   of   deserters
with an iron hand, and is having!
deserters executed wholesale, lie
has ordered all officers and  men
to be at their posts by August 14.
Failing to obey, they will be shot
as traitors.   .The "Lord of Kron- j
stadt," leader of the recent revolt
at Kronstadt, has surrendered to!
the provisional government. Thei
temper of the retreating armies!
has undergone a big change, and!
the troops are preparing to resist)
the Huns.    The shock of disaster
has stirred the instincts of the;
yation.
Big demonstrations are takinM j
place in Warsaw as the result of
the arrest of  General   Pilsudski,
of the  Polish   legion, and other j
leaders of the movement against
imposing the oath of fidelity to;
the Austro-German sovereign on
the Polish army. Many legion-
aires refuse to take any such
oath.
The British cruiser Ariadne
has been torpedoed and sunk.
Thirty-eight men perished,
H.M.S. Ariadne: armored cruiser;huilt
1900; 11,0(10 tons; sliced,21 knots; sixteen
u'-in., twelve 12-pounder guns; two
torpedo tubes; crew (!S0 men.
Paris: Violent artillery duels
occurred in the Aisne and Verdun
regions last night. German surprise attacks weie repulsed.
Almost no damage was done in
the recent aerial raid over Paris.
Berlin: In the recent aft- raid
on Paris by German airplanes
bombs were dropped on railway
stations and military establishments.
Rome: Minor fighting has resulted in our favor on the Trentino front. The Julian front sees
much aerial activity. An enemy
machine was brought down.
Italy awaits only for the U. S.
to furnish money, fuel and munitions before launching another
great offensive against the Austrians.
London: Germany's junkers
are working hard with the people
to justify militarism. An effort
by the militarists to delude the
public into the belief that Germany is beset by rapacious foes
who started the war to dismember Germany is what Loudon saw
today behind the "peace interview granted newspapermen by
Michaelis and foreign minister
Czernin.of Austria.
Berlin: Michaelis draws a picture of an ill-used German nation
beset by cruel foes, declaring
that conquest is the real aim of
Britain,and that France is equally guilty. A parallel statement
has been made by the Austrian
foreign minister.

London: Britain and France
have signalled the beginning of
the fourth year Of the war today
with a joint offensive on the two
fronts that?has swept forward to
the full success of the first objectives. The Briiish, in conjunction with the French,attacked German positions along a wide
front at 3.50 this morning north
of the river Lys, while on the
Aisne the French also drove forward. The offensive is the culmination of the tremendously
heavy bombardment which lias
been in progress continuously for
a week. The two objects of the
Entente offensive are the capture
of the Belgian North Sea coast,
which has been a base for submarines, and to assist the hard-
pressed Russians.
Paris: Suddenly assuming the
offensive, the French have swept
forward to complete success of
their first objectives on a front
of more than a mile at Laroirer,
and west of Epine de Chevregny
on the Chemin des Dames.
London: In the mountainous
region between the Casin valley
and Putna the enemy attacked
at different points and were
everywhere repulsed, according
to a Roumanian statement.
The Russians are finally attempting to,make a stand on
their own soil. Germans have
crossed the Zbrobz river, which
forms the border between Russia
and Austria. The Russians are
offering a fierce resistance.
Dublin: Ireland can get anything she wants short of separation, and may choose her own
course. The British government
is anxious to have the problem
settled, though the labors of the
convention may last six months.
The spread of the Sinn Fein is
endangering the power of the
Nationalists.
Amsterdam: Deported Belgians are being starved to death
by their Hun captors. There is
frightful mortality in the prison
camp at Soltau. The food is so
inadequate that exiles drop from
weakness.
Corunna, Spain: German submarine U-23 anchored in the
harbor late yesterday, and__. is
seriously damaged, but the crelv
and commander refuse to tell
the cause of the injuries. She
will be interned.
THURSDAY, AUG. 2
it ************************************************;;
London: Thirty square miles
of territory and probably 5000;
prisoners have been captured in
the first 24 hours of the great
Allied drive in Flanders. At
some points the Allies penetrated
the German lines for three miles.
A deluge of rain has turned the
historic mud of Flanders into a
sticky ooze, whicli is hampering
the drive today. Haig reports
all gains consolidated during the
night and all German counterattacks repulsed. The French
report contains a similar statement.
No offensive fighting is reported except minor operations soulh
of Ypres and Comines, where we
improved our positions.
The Battle of Flanders is believed to be the biggest of the
war and may last for weeks or
months. Military observers say
the Germans may soon be cleared
out of French and Belgian Flanders.
The roar of the battle is heard
in London.
The Times indirectly appeals to
President Wilson to go on the
stump for the purpose of awakening the people of lhe U.S. to the
realities of the war.
Paris: After several days of
artillery preparation, Germans
Ibis morning attacked positions
on the left bank of the Meuse
whicli the French captured on
July 17. v lhe enemy was only
able to reach certain advanced
elements of lb'' French front lim'
trenches. On lhe Aisne front
artillery fire continues.
Petrograd: 'lhe Russians are
holding on in Bukowina. Resistance for the defence of Ger io-
witz is increasing, and the Austro-German advance is being
strenuously opposed.
The Roumanians have taken
over 5000 prisoners between the
I Casin and Putna valleys and
i have broken through the Ger-
| man front for a considerable
j depth over a wide area, captur-
j ing 98 guns.
Washington: The U. S. will
talk specific terms of peace only
I when Germany is beaten. This
decision of the government was
made as the Allied democracies
entered upon the fourth year of
the world struggle.
Halifax: A hospital ship from
England with nearly 600 wounded and sick Canadians on board
went ashore oft' Chebucto Head,
outside the harbor today. The
vessel is resting easily, with a
smooth sea.

London: The resumption of
the Allied drive in Flanders is
awaiting a hot sun. Movements
of masses are impossible in the
seemingly bottomless mud. The
transfer of artillery nearer the
advanced line for future bar/rage
lire could not be accomplished
over the ooze. Until some of the
mud of the thirty-six hours' solid
rain dries up the drive will be
apparently halted. In the meantime, however, the Allies are
withstanding fierce counter-attacks delivered by the Germans
despite the morass of no-man's-
land. The prisoners taken in
the British Flanders drive are a
sorry lot, few having the hope
that Germany can win the war.
Russia appeared today with
the reform of her shattered
armies in Galicia. At three

vance has seemingly stopped
apruptiy. At other points the
Russian armies have actually
assumed the offensive.
Paris: Continued bad weather
in Belgium with but scant fighting is reported. The enemy has
renewed his attacks on the Meuse
without success. Artillery fire
is active on the Chemin des
Dames.
