THE LEADING WEEKLY NEWSPAPER OF NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
VOL. IV, NO. 22
HAZELTON, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY 30, 1915
PRICE $2.00 A YEAR
HELD ANNUAL MEETING
At the Hospital, on Thursday
evening, the patrons of the institution, to the number of seventy, held their annual meeting,
with R. S. Sargent in the chair.
With many eulogistic remarks
concerning the management, the
report for the year was adopted.
After a demonstration of the
new X-ray apparatus, and the
re-election of R. S. Sargent as a
member of the advisory board,
the meeting adjourned to take
advantage of the hospitality of
the staff, which included an excellent concert program in which
the following participated:- Mrs.
Hoskins, Mrs. Burrington, Mrs.
McLean, Mrs. Hamblin, Miss
Freeman, Miss Hogan, Mr Phillips and Mr. Forster.
The League Race
At Smithers, on Wednesday
night, New Hazelton won a
league fixture from the home
team by 2-0. Warner scored the
first goal for the winners in the
first minute's play, McDonell
netting the other one in the second period. Smithers tried out
several new men, and the game
was closely contested, heavy
checking being very prominent
throughout. The local team go
to New Hazelton tonight, for
what promises to be the crucial
game of the season. If the latter should win, it would give
them a good fighting chance for
the cup, while the local players
can practically cinch the title by
bringing home a victory. Supporters of both teams are confident of success, and a record
crowd will go over for the game.
Following is the league standing to date:

Death of F. Heal
The many friends in the district of Mr. Fred Heal -who had
extensive interests in the Bulkley
Valley���will be sorry to hear of
his death last Sunday at Salisbury Plains, of pneumonia. Mr.
Heal was with the first Canadian
contingent.
GERMAN NAVAL LOSSES SEVERE
GERMAN NAVY RECEIVES SERIOUS,
SETBACK IN SUNDAY'S BATTLE
London, Jan. 30:���A despatch
from Petrograd dealing with the
battle in Eastern Prussia, says
the Russians occupied Pillkallen
after one day's shelling. The
garrison suffered heavily before
retiring. Of a population of
6,000. only 300 women and children and aged persons remained.
The Germans have strong defences from the north of the
Mazurian lakes region to Inster-
burg, and along the Augerapp
river, but they are comparatively
weak farther northward to Tilsit.
A despatch to the Morning
Post from Petrograd says the
Russians are steadily closing in
on Insterburg (East Prussia)
from the north, east and southeast. Tilsit is virtually surrounded and the Russians there are in
a position to threaten the left
wing of the German's defending
line of Pillkallen-Lasdehnen. In
the Carpathians, matters are going entirely in favor of the Russians. An official government
messenger reports serious disturbances in Hifngary's army
owing to a scarcity of provisions.
Conditions in the Carpathians are
such that both sides are entrench
ing themselves in the snow, as it
is impossible to dig into the
earth.
Austria has sent on this desperate move all that remains of
her army except the forces on
the Servian frontier, on the Nida
river (southern Russian Poland)
and in Bukowina. It now may
be seen clearly how valuable was
the rapid Russian movement
through Bukowina, since it gave
the Austrians no time to rest
and recruit their armies. This
fresh Austrian advance was pre
pared hastily and before the
forces were ready, and could not
have been made at all but for
the assistance of the German
troops. Nevertheless, it is viewed quite seriously.
In Holland, from a German
source���the reliability of whose
information has been proved time
after time during the war���comes
word that in a naval battle on
Sunday, beside the loss of the
Bluecher, three other German
ships were badly damaged. The
largest of the German cruisers,
the Dei'flinger, suffered grave injury from fire, and is now being
overhauled in Hamburg. The
Seydlitz and Moltke, which both
lie in Cuxhaven, are also in a
seriously damaged condition.
More than two hundred wounded
bluejackets have passed through
Hamburg. The Bluecher was
one of the vessels transferred
from Kiel to Wilhelmshaven not
long before the battle.
STORY OF THE GREAT WAR TOLD DAY BY DAY
London, Jan. 25:���An attempt
by a German squadron to repeat
the attack recently made on
Scarborough, the Hartlepools
and other British coast towns,
was frustrated today by the
British patrolling squadron, and
in a running fight, the German
armored cruiser Bleucher was
sunk and two German battle
cruisers were seriously damaged.
British ships suffered only
slight injury. So far as is known
only 123 of the Bleucher's crew
of 885 were saved. A battle also
occurred between the light cruisers and destroyers accompanying
the bigger ships, but the result
of this engagement has not yet
reached the Admiralty.
The British were superior in
ships engaged, weight of armaments and speed, and the (light
of the German ships into a mine
and submarine infested field
possibly saved them from further losses. The Bleucher was
a cruiser of 15,550 tons' displacement, and although commissioned
in 1908, was completely re-rigged
last year. She was not classed
as a battle cruiser, but was in
the next class to those formidable fighters.
With her were the Derflinger,
Germany's latest battle cruiser,
which had just left the builder's
hands, and the battle cruisers
Seydlitz and Moltke, the latter a
sister ship to the Goeben, formerly of the German but now of
the Turkish fleet, which was recently reported damaged by the
Russians in the Black Sea.
The British squadron was commanded by Vice-Admiral Sir
David Beatty, who was also in
command at the battle off Heligoland last August, and consisted
of the battle cruisers Tiger, Lion,
Princess Royal, New Zealand and
Indomitable. The first three of
these cruisers mount 13.5 inch
guns, which are equal to those
of the Derflinger, the only one
of the German ships that had
better that 11 inch guns.
London, Jan. 25:���A Petrograd
despatch to the Times asserts
that the Russians have sunk near
Sinope, Asia Minor, the steamer
Georgios, on board of which were
sixteen aeroplanes, comprising
the entire Turkish aerial fleet,
Berlin:���An official report of
the naval fight in the North Sea,
admits the loss of two battle
cruisers. Pending further in- j
formation from the Admiralty,
it is not known whether the second loss was caused by gun fire ���
or submarines.
Cairo:���Attempts   were made
to assassinate Field-Marshal Von
j der   Goltz    at   Constantinople.
The field-marshal, with several
| officers, was fired upon  and re-
j ported   hit.     Strained relations
| between   Turkish   and   German
officers  resulted  in the death of
a Turkish captain and the wounding of  a  German   colonel  in   a
cafe disturbance in Damascus.
London, Jan. 26:���A despatch
to the Daily Mail, from Venice,
says ii is reported there that an
Austrian cruiser has struck a
mine near the Brioni Islands and
sunk. Brioni Islands are at the
mouth of the harbor of Pola,
Austria's naval base and arsenal
on the Adriatic.
Paris, Jan.  25:-Official com-;
munication issued to-night, there
is nothing to report.
London, Jan. 26: It was officially announced at the Admiralty today that the British armored
vessel Viknor, had been lost off
Ireland with all hands. The,
vessel, it was stated, either
struck a mine or was foundered, j
A Petrograd despatch says, "It
is believed in Petrograd that the
German troops which have been
moving through Hungary are intended to oppose tne Russian advance in the southern Carpathians, and the announcement that
they were to move against Servia
was incorrect. It is not believed
possible that the Germans could
prepare an army strong enough
to move against Servia until
Spring.
Paris:���By order of the Kaiser
Thann has to be taken at any
cost, and Wilhelm II has sent his
second son, Eitel Freiderich,
to see that it is done. That
probably accounts for the extremely hard -fighting which has
taken place. First came the
German advance from Uffholz
and Steinbach and the advance
on Harmann-Weiler, possession
of which would enable them to
approach Thaun from the rear.
The French hold the crest and a
portion of the wooded sides of
this hill and are fighting hand-to-
hand battles for the rest. The
Germans have been elaborately
preparing, but the Fivnch effort
to dislodge them from the sides
of  the  mountain is progressing.
London, Jan. 27:���Official���All
of the British ships and destroyers engaged in Sunday's act ion
returned safely. The Lion, which
was struck by two shells below
the water line, and had her fore
comparments flooded, was towed
in by the Indomitable. The destroyer Meteor, which was disabled, was towed in by the destroyer Liberty, both under a
strong escort of destroyers.
These ships can speedily be repaired. Sunday's casualties were:
Lion, 17 wounded; Tiger, 1 officer
and nine men killed, three officers and eight men wounded;
Meteor, four men killed and one
wounded. Two hundred additional survivors of the Bluecher
have been landed by British warships.
The Scotsman today publishes
the narrative of a German bluejacket, one of the survivors of
the German cruiser Bluecher,
who once lived in the United
States. This bluejacket said the
German fleet was advancing at
full speed to attack the English
coast, when British warships
were sighted. Thereupon the
Germans turned and made for
port. The Bluecher, which was
comparatively slow, made desperate efforts to keep up her

Vol. IV.
Saturday, January 30. 1915.
No. 22
The speech of the Lieutenent-Governor at the opening of the
Session of the Legislative Assembly was chiefly confined to a
review of existing conditions. The reference to the war was
appropriate, and the spirit of His Honor's remarks was worthy of
the unusual circumstances which called them out.
��� The review of industrial conditions discloses the fact that in
agriculture and fisheries we are making steady and highly satisfactory progress; the value of the mining output for 1914 was very
well sustained, notwithstanding (he drop in the price of metals.
Owing to the fluctuations constantly occurring in the price of
metals except gold, the value of the yield in any year is not always
indicative of the output or the amount of labor employed. There
was, last year, a decrease in the amount of production, in great
part attributable to the effect of the coal strike.
The condition of the timber industry has given a great deal of
concern to all persons who have been watchful of business conditions in the Province, chiefly because of the very great reduction
in the export trade. It is, therefore, very gratifying to learn that
efforts are being put forward which, it is hoped, will revive this
trade. Prosperity for the timber industry means very much for
every line of business, and especially does it afford employment for
large numbers of men, who otherwise might find it difficult to get
regular work. If the Government caji promote the expansion of'
this trade, it will do excellent service for the Province.
It is gratifying to learn that although the Government does
not feel it ought, under existing conditions, to proceed with the
erection of the University buildings at the present time, it is hoped
that by Autumn .arrangements will have been completed so that
the lecture courses may be begun. While buildings of a high class
and appropriate grounds are invaluable, nevertheless, the chief
thing in connection with a university is the instruction imparted,
and there is to be no delay on this score, although the buildings
must wait upon better times. We think the public will approve of
the line of action in this matter, which the Government has decided
to adopt.
The nature of the legislation arising out of the reports of the
commissions on agriculture and labor will be awaited with interest.
These are matters that call for a great deal of consideration, and
if the Government shall deem it wise to delay pressing its bills on
these subjects through the House until they have been before the
public a year, as was the case of the municipal bill, it would not
find it difficult to justify such a course. We say this without
being at all advised of the line the Government will follow in this
regard. ���Colonist.

In" a lengthy article by Sir
Richard McBride in the Monetary Times Annual, just issued,
the Premier writes as follows
regarding railway construction
in the province:
"One of the most significant
things in connection with the
present situation in British Columbia is the fact that the immense program of railway construction is being carried on
practically without any let-up.
There ai'e five large railway corporations that are and have been
carrying on extensively and
whose operations in construction,
when complete as at present outlined, will have added about
4,500 mileage of track in ten
years. The Grand Trunk Pacific
is now practically completed
now nearly all this new mileage
will be in operation, and I can
scarcely realize what it will mean
through British Columbia and is
running  trains.     The Canadian
sums in new lines, douhle-traek-
ingand tunneling. The lines for
whose construction the Provincial Government policy is responsible are the Canadian Northern Pacific, the Pacific Great
Eastern, to connect up the Coast
with the Peace River district, and
the Kettle Valley Railway.
There is, of course, too, the Great
Northern Railway, which ispush-
inglhrough to Vancouver through
the Southern Interior by way of
Hope, and will, for several distances, at least, utilize existing
lines. In twelve months from
in the way of development when
these new avenues of communication and the areas tributary
to them are opened to
Columbia and to Canada.
began, it would have been years
before it would have been available for investment in British
Columbia, as the people who
have financed this railway construction are now substantially
interested in the Province and
will continue to do their utmost
to further the success of the
railways and the country through
which they run."
Ottawa, Jan. 29:���The nature
of the war tax proposals to be
introduced at the approaching
session of parliament, will not be
known until Hon. W. T. White,
minister of finance, delivers his
budget speech.
It is practically certain that
there will be a number of tariff
changes designed to increase the
customs revenues, which have
fallen away $25,000,000 for the

The war has not affected the
stamp issue in Canada. Instead
of decreasing it has grown, a
fact which is doubtless due in
part to so many Canadians being
in the old country and the heavy
correspondence taking place between them.
The Icebreaker Canada, sent
by the Canadian Government for
the purpose of keeping open as
late as possible the port of Archangel, has been disabled. Sixteen steamers have already been
frozen in, and the prospects of
releasing them are poor.

which a strong demand for the
cereal exists.

any other question, which means
that Washington will go "dry"

by the voters.

Nome, Alaska, Jan, 28:���Edward (Nugget) Johnson, a miner
well known in the Nome district,
has struck gold on a Tundra Lake
claim near Moroville, half way
between Nome and Little Creek,
about 2 miles from Nome. Johnson is working the ground under
lease from a large mining company. The strike was kept secret for about two weeks, and
the news has just become known.
Johnson drifted under the
frozen lake and found a body of
pay gravel four feet deep, carrying an average of forty cents a
pan. Drifting has been done for
a considerable distance. The
pay continues to hold as far as
the ground has been drifted, and
Johnson says he has at least
$100,000 already blocked out.
Many miners think this is a continuation of the Walrus, on Little
Creek, which produced millions
a few years ago. Numerous
mining outfits are now prospecting in the vicinity of the strike
and mining activities have received a great impetus.
A number of local people took
in the merchants' dance at New
Hazelton last night and spent a
very enjoyable evening.

mans attempted to break through
the Allies' lines in an effort to
capture Bethune. The attack
commenced early in the morning,
the infantry being supported by
artillery and armored trains.
Five attempts were made, but
they were all unsuccessful. The
Germans even went as far as the
church in Givencbv-les-LaBassee.
Fierce bayonet fights were incident to the battle, and the carnage was great. Vermilles,
Givenchy and Junchy were
covered with the bodies of Germans. According to a prisoner,
this attack was planned several
days before, Emperor William
himself going to LaRassee to
study the disposition of his *|
troops.

since the reverses they sustained
a month ago. at Sari Kamysh
and Ardahan, have been more or

the offensive at three widely separated points, namely in the

Military observers claim to see
in this activity, an elaboration of
the German program of stronger
offensive throughout the Carpathian front.
