Valley Team Proves Superiority and Wins Northern
Hockey Championship.
Smithers has won the Ross
Cup and the hockey championship of the north. Last Saturday
night, New Hazelton, playing on
Smithers rink, was defeated 3-1.
Although this game decided the
championship, much interest
centered in Wednesday's game
with Hazelton. The boys from
the ota town went up determined to win, but could do nothing
with the stonewall defence of
Crandall, Keddie and Morison.
After a hard fought game the
score was 3-2 in favor of Captain
Aldous' redoubtable seven. Fawcett, Aldous and Keddie scored
for Smithers and Blyth and Sinclair for Hazelton'. Hugh Taylor was referee and Hugh Harris
judge of play.
A large crowd went up from
Hazelton to root for their team.
After the game the Hazelton
amateur players presented "Turn
Him Out" in the Prince Theater,
in aid of the Hazelton Hospital
equipment fund. There was a
large crowd, which greeted the
performance with enthusiasm. A
dance followed the performance.
The last game of the hockey
season will be played tonight at
New Hazelton, with Hazelton as
the visiting team.
Reward for Radium

Victoria, Feb. 27:���The premier introduced a bill for the extension of the P. G. E. from
Fort George to the Peace river
country, guaranteeing interest
on $35,000 a mile for 330 miles.
The guarantee for the Vancouver-Fort George section is to be
increased by $7,000 a mile.
Mining Pays Well
Jas. Vick, a prominent financial
man, says that as the result of
investigation he finds the dividends paid by the mines of the
United States exceed those paid
by all the banks and railroads
combined; and that whereas in
mercantile pursuits 95 per cent
fail, the failures in mining are
only 38 per cent.
Will Buy Fine Stock
Charles Barrett, proprietor of
the big Diamond D ranch, came

KILDARE JiTARTS SOIIN
There will be much activity in
the Omineca river placer field
during the coming season. Early
as it is, quite a number of miners and prospectors have started
from Hazelton with their outfits.
It is expected that Geo. VV. Otterson, managing director of the
Kildare Co., will be here in about
three weeks, with a full crew of
miners, to resume work on the
eight miles of placer ground held
by his company. All the company's machinery is now on the
ground, and everything is in
readiness for work on an extensive scale. Mr. Otterson recently returned to SeattlefromGrant's
Pass, Ore., where he took an option on a big placer property on
behalf of Seattle men. He writes
that there is plenty of money
available for the purchase of developed properties, although prospects are not in demand.

ES WES OF REVENUE Ai
EXPfflDlflIRE PRESENTED
Receipts of Ten Millions Expected���Nearly Four Millions
More Will be Expended on Works and for Public
Service in Year Beginning April lst.
Victoria, Feb. 27:-The estimates for 1914 were tabled yesterday. Revenue for the coming
year is estimated at $10,000,000.
The expenditure will be $13,700,-
000. The appropriations for
public works are $5,300,000.
About half of this amount is for
public works and buildings, the
remainderbeingfor roads, streets,
bridges and wharves. For these
the Skeena district vote is $216,-
000.
The appropriation for education includes half a million for
the provincial university and
$96,000 for technical education.
For buildings at Prince Rupert
$150,000 will be spent.
The legislature will be asked
to vote $1,250,000 as supplementary estimates for various public services not provided for at
the last session.
Finance Minister Ellison, in
his budget speech, was optimistic
regarding the business outlook
and the prospects for agricultural development in the province.
The latter, he said, had not been
able to . keep up with the rapid
increase of population. The expenditure of a large part of the
surplus had, he said, been justified.
Premier McBride, in' a half-
hour speech, justified the additional guarantee for the C. N. R.
He explained that the province
will become the conditional owner of $1,000,000 of common stock
and stated that the total C. N. R.
guarantee, including the new
proposals, would be $47,000,000.
Saskatchewan guarantees $21,-
000,000. Alberta, $33,000,000,
and Manitoba, $21,000,000. The
total railway guarantees of British Columbia, including the P.-

VILLA MUST
British Press Demands Satisfaction From Mexico for
Murder of Benton by Rebels
London, Feb. 27:���The British
press demands that General
Villa be compelled to answer for
the killing of Benton. Some
papers suggest intervention by
the Powers and the United States.
The Times insists that satisfaction be obtained.
Chas. V. Smith, whose store
and residence were burned three
weeks ago, has begun the erection
ofa new store building, on the site lines throughout the coalfields.

Talks, which will be continued

Lent. The services and addresses will be illustrated by lantern
slides, and whilst the series has
been arranged specially for the
children, parents and others will
find them of interest and be as-
1 sured a welcome.
El Paso, Tex., Feb. 22.-Records of the alleged court-martial
of W. S. Benton, the Canadian
who was murdered by Mexicans,
have been made public. Jaurez
asserts Benton was present and
was represented by a rebel officer. He was executed for attempting armed violence against
Villa. He was found guilty of
giving aid to the enemy. Benton's friends received the report
with sneers, and pointed to the
knowledge that for many years
he guarded against possible results of his spirits and temper
by never carrying a pistol.
London, Feb. 23:���The putting
to death of William S. Benton, a
British subject, by General Fran-
cisco Villa. Mexican rebel leader,
at Juarez, has aroused the British
Parliament and people to a keen
apprehension of the British in.
terests involved in the Mexican
situation.
The killing of Benton was the
principal subject for discussion
in the house of commons this
afternoon. A full house listened
with intense interest to the explanation given by Sir Edward
Grey, foreign minister, and Sir
Francis Dyke-Acland, parliamentary under-secretary for foreign affairs. They spoke of the
British Government's attitude
and discussed their communications with Washington. Feeling
that a repetition of the Benton
incident might force the American Government to a change of
policy is apparent in official circles.
"The Pacification of Mexico is
an object we honestly desire to
see accomplished, but it is impossible to effect it by British intervention. We do not intend to
make any attempt of that character which would be futile and
impolitic."
This is the attitude of the British foreign office as outlined today in the house of commons by
Francis Dyke-Ackland.
Sir Edward Grey said: "Before
this incident occurred the United
States Government  had, at our
request,    impressed    upon    the
leaders of the  constitutionalist
party in Mexico the necessity of
respecting the lives of foreigners.
i 1 should like to add that the fact
��� that our communicating with the
j government of the Unined States
does not, of course, imply that
I it has any responsibility for what
jhas taken place."

The Pacific, Peace River & Athabasca railway, projected by
English capitalists who hold large areas of coal land in the big
Groundhog field, bids fair to prove one of the great factors in the
development of Northern British Columbia. As to the bona fides
of the project there seems to be no question, and it is probable
that early spring will see the preliminary surveys well under way.
By the article printed in another column it will be seen that the
new road is to enter two of the richest districts in the great
country tributary to Hazelton���the anthracite coalfields of the upper Skeena and the gold camps of the Omineca river district. The
building of the railway may divert much of the trade of those
promising sections from this town, unless other railways affording
connection with Hazelton are constructed, yet the people of Hazelton have no reason to look with anything but favor on the P. P. R.
& A. railway. Its construction will inevitably lend impetus to the
development of the entire district, bringing increased business to
this town, while there other districts, possessing great resources,
which are nearer to Hazelton than to any point on the projected
road, ancl which are likely to remain tributary to this town.
lhe season of activity in Groundhog and the Omineca camps is
already beginning, a number of surveying and prospecting parties
having already left Hazelton, as well as a large amount of freight,
which will be followed in the course of a few weeks by several
working crews, which will continue development operations. The
business men of this town have good reason to feel confident that
Hazelton will continue to be, as it has been for many years, the
distributing point for a great and rich district.

The new Pacific, Peace River
& Athabasca railway, which is
seeking a charter at Ottawa, is
attracting much attention in the
west. Surveyors will go into the
field in March or early in April,
be
begun some time in the spring
of 1915.
The line has been laid out with
a view of draining the magnificent Groundhog coal basin, in
which Mr. Thomas and his associates have secured large interests. The line will also tap the
coal fields along the Peace river,
will pass through the Omineca
mining country, and it aims to
make a bid for the transportation of wheat by its sections
through Alberta and Saskatchewan.
At Prince Albert, Sask., the
Pacific, Peace River & Athabasca
railway will secure connection
with the big Canadian transcon-
tinentals and connections with
the railway systems of America.
It will also be in a position to
enter the Hudson Bay district
through the pass.
The promoters plan to build
the road from Nasoga gulf, in
the Portland canal, and very near
the mouth, of the Naas river.
From that point the line will
cross British Columbia and will
go through the] mountains by
Hogem pass. The grade there is
said to be .91 per cent, about the
best mountain grade obtainable.
Hogem pass is about 375 miles
northwest of the Yellowhead
pass, through which the G. T, P.
and C. N. R. enter British Columbia.
Except for sections along the
Naas river, where it approaches |
as close as twenty  miles to the

There is not the least doubt,
says the report, that there was
not anything like as much game
killed before the season opened
this year as last year, and this
remark applies with particular
force in the vicinities of construction camps, where last year, before the season opened there was
a regular epidemic of   poaching.
Mr. Williams has some interesting things to say in regard to
the license which has been enforced during the year. On this
point he says that it is doubtful
if any previous amendment to
the Game Act had been simpler
to enforce or more effective in
operation. He makes an interesting point about the necessity of
increased attention being paid to
the issuing of licenses in order
to prevent hoys under lfi years
of age from "securing them.

returns received, 20(5 informations were laid under the Game
