during the week.
Telegraphic Briefs
Sydney: Many voters of German extraction voted against
conscription in Australia.
New York: The French liner
Chicago, the largest transatlantic
steamer, arrived from Bordeaux.
Washington: Thenewalienland
act is likely to cause diplomatic
difficulties with Japan.
London: A reception unique
in character will be given the
overseas statesmen attending the
Imperial conference.
New York: Boy Scouts numbering 600,000 have been ordered
by their national council to prepare for service.
Ottawa: The war loan to be
issued next month will be purely
domestic. The war tax has increased Canada's revenue for the
year ten millions.
NAVY CHECKS HUN SUBMARINES
CONDITIONS IN GERMANY GROWING SERIOUS-
AMERICANS REGARD WAR AS INEVITABLE
On Grouse  Mountain
John Brown, who is in charge
of work on'the Cassiar Crown
group, is in town. He reports
good progress on this noted copper property, and predicts big
doings in the Grouse Mountain
section.
London: The admiralty has
the U-boat campaign well in hand.
More vessels arrived in British
ports on Wednesday than on any
one day in the last six months.
Figures show that the percentage
of loss is small, only four ships
having been sunk out of 140 arrivals. Navy men say the new
submarines are inferior, being
hastily constructed and manned
by inexperienced crews.
London: British airplanes successfully bombarded the harbor
of Bruges, damaging German
shipping. One machine is missing.
Paris: Heavy casualties were
inflicted on the Germans in a
French raid on the second line of
enemy trenches in the Puisaleine
region. There was artillery activity in the Champagne sector.
The German people are on the
verge of starvation. Hindenburg,
who is in control, coldly ignores
the sufferings of the masses and
plans for army ne^ds alone.     It
is evidently realized that defeat
faces the nation this year. Graft
is rampant, the police apparently
being unable to stop it. Cold has
ruined much food. Huge quantities-of apples and potatoes have
been frozen and fuel is scarce.
Washington: President Wilson
and his advisors now regard war
with Germany as absolutely inevitable, and at an early date.
Every effort is being made to
unite the nation for eventualities.
The arrival of German submarines off the American coast is
expected daily. It has been established that German money
was used to foment the insurrection in Cuba. The navy board is
meeting secretly.
Americans in Austria have
been warned to leave, but officials hope to avoid a breach with
Austria.
The government is taking steps
to frustrate German plotters and
to protect the railroads.
Germany has released the 72
Americans held with the Yarrow-
dale prisoners, and has modified
the orders which would compel
the retirement from Belgium of
American relief workers.
BIG RECRUITING MEETING
Engineer Officer Shows Moving
Pictures of Recruits
in Training
London: The British* people
have shown themselves eager to
subscribe for the great loan
which is expected to end the war.
The final rush of investors took
place today, and it is fully expected that the loan will be
oversubscribed.
London: Submarines torpedoed two British steamers and two
trawlers yesterday.
France will vote 9,574,000,000
francs for the war fund.
Germany has loaned the Turks
42,500,000 Turkish pounds.
Petrograd: A Teutonic attack
on the Russian lines east of Lemberg, in Galicia, was repulsed.
On the Roumanian front infantry
are engaged.
Mrs. Temple's Telegram
Don't forget to be at Assembly
Hall next Tuesday eveninR.when
"Mrs. Temple's Telegram" will
be performed by an amateur cast
for the first time in B. (*, This
famous farce is full of humor.
Temple's efforts to deceive his
wife, supported by his friend
Fuller; an insight into the domestic felicity of the Brown family,
and the laughable confidences of
Wigson in his efforts to sympathize with everybody, all go to
make up an enjoyable performance. Don't miss it. Feb 20, at
8 p.m.
Santa Maria Still Shipping
Jefferson & Dockrill are loading two cars of Santa Maria ore
at Telkwa. This property will
ship regularly as long as sleighing lasts.
Jack; Brown, who saw some of
the ore at Telkwa, says it is
bornite of remarkably fine appearance.
Going   to  Ingineca
Several parties of placer miners
are preparing to leave for the
Ingineca district. It is expected
that the river trail will be in
condition for use next week.
Copenhagen: Norway.Sweden
and Denmark have sent identical
notes to Germany, protesting
against the "barred zone" order,
RED CROSS EVENT
A BIG SUCCESS
The Valentine Social held in
St. Andrew's Hall on Tuesday,
under the auspices of the Red
Cross, was largely attended, and
a very enjoyable evening was
spent. The committee in charge
presented a pleasing program,
which included several numbers
hy the school children, songs,
musical numbers, etc. The main
event of the evening was the
delivery of Valentines through
the "postoffice" established for
that purpose. The usual postal
arrangements were reversed, the
postage being collected on delivery. The hall was appropriately
decorated for the occasion,hearts
and cupids having prominent
places in the general scheme, an
idea which was also carried out
in the refreshments served at
the conclusion of the entertainment.
Frisco to Ship
The Journal reports that the
Frisco property.on Legate Creek,
will be worked this season by a
company headed by W. Tuttle.of
Prince Rupert. Some ten tons
of ore from this group was
treated at Granby last fall and
averaged about $200 a ton.
St.  Patrick's   Day
The ladies of Hazelton Women's
Auxiliary announce a Tea for the
benefit of the Soldiers' Aid on
the afternoon of St. Patrick's
Day, Saturday, March 17. The
Soldiers' Aid Committee is planning an entertainment for the
evening, but has not yet decided
what form the event will take.
Practical Mining  Method
They have formed a development syndicate in Hedley, says
the Gazette, to take over and
work claims on lease and bond.
The scheme has worked satisfactorily in other camps, often
realizing good returns on the
investment. The scheme is for
a number of men to invest $5 or
$10 monthly, bond a claim, and
put men to work developing it.
All are contributors or workers.
If pay ore is struck big enough
to lift the bond and pay dividends it may prove a big winner.
On the other hand, there is the
known investmentand loss should
it prove a failure. It is a good
gamble. The scheme could be
worked in almost any camp.
Paris: The German submarine
campaign is so far ineffective. On
Monday 112 ships entered French
pqrts. A reward of 500,000 francs
will be paid to the crew of any
merchant ship sinking a submarine.
The most interesting recruiting
meeting yet held in Hazelton
took place last night, when Assembly Hall was crowded to hear
Lieut Evans, of the 6th Canadian
Engineers, tell of the training and
work of that highly important
branch of the army. The lecture
was illustrated by means of
moving pictures showing the experiences of an Engineer recruit
from his appearance at the recruiting office to the departure
of a draft for overseas, giving
the audience an interesting view
of one phase of war operations.
The lieutenant's address was interesting and to the point, and
will undoubtedly result in further
accessions to the ranks of the
Engineers, in which service Hazelton men have already won
distinction.
An excellent concert program
added to the interest of the occasion. Piano selections and accompaniments were played by
Mrs. Hoskins, Mrs. Chappell and
Miss Hogan; Mrs. Chpttleburgh,
Miss Davis.and H. H. Little sang
appropriate and pleasing solos,
and H.H.Phillips gave a reading.
F. B. Chettleburgh and N. R.
Carey handled the moving pictures. S. H. Hoskins was chairman.
Lieut. Evans leaves for Smithers this evening.
Recruiting  for   11 th   Irish
Lieut. D. J. Gordon will arrive
in Hazelton tomorrow to enlist
men for the 11th Irish Fusiliers
re-inforcements. He will hold a
mpeting on Monday evening,
Feb. 19, and will show recent
war pictures and give a lecture
on the war.
Opening Postponed
Victoria: Owing to the death
of Hon. Ralph Smith, the opening of the legislature has been
postponed until March 1.

corps of Indians is being formed,
for service overseas. Capt. A.

agencies, is in charge of recruiting for this unit in B.C., and will

No. 25
"The War First Party is the only party for Canada now," cried
Ralph Connor towards the end of his address on the "The Last
Round" in St. James' Methodist Church, Montreal,a few days ago.
"That party would get the votes of all the soldiers in the trenches.
Their mothers would all vote for it, and all the women who have
sent their loved ones to the front would line up with that party. T
dinna grudge my boy,' was what a Winnipeg mother said to me
when I had to tell her of the last, moments of her boy at the front.
"The second thing for all true Canadians is to line up behind
the determination to abandon all parties which refuse to join this
one," continued the speaker, in trying to drive home his feeling
that it is all important just now that the British Empire should
make an impressive display of strength and of a united and
unbreakable determination to carry on the war until the military
power of Germany is broken beyond repair.
"I went to the Somme by roads and hill-sides crowded with
British guns, British equipment and British soldiers. When I got
to the front line and could see over to the German lines I saw a
strange and gladdening sight. In the Ypres salient we had always
kept our guns under cover. I have walked within ten feet of a big
gun without detecting it. They were shot from hedges and cellars
and we had to do it because the preponderance of artillery was not
with us. But there, on the Somme, our guns were in the open,
lining all the hilltops, and firing night and day without fear,
absolutely dominating the situation. The next thing I saw was
that over our heads were those strange humming birds that we love
to see when they have the proper bird tails. Those with fish tails
we do not care for. I counted 27 of them winging their way
backwards and forwards over our lines and the German lines
without opposition. There were 20 or 30 observation balloons
sailing entirely undisturbed. Far back of the German lines were
twosolitaryjlittle balloons and now and then emerging from a cloud
the nose of a Fritz air-bird. We hold the supremacy of the air as
far as the Somme is concerned.
"I saw our lads come back from a fight. They came sauntering
along with trails of German prisoners, not, as you would expect,
with bayonets fixed, to make sure of the prisoners, but one little
corporal or sergeant, with his rifle swung over his shoulder, would
be shepherding a bunch of prisoners behind him, all glad to come.
Don't think 1 am discounting the German lighter. Those men are
great and mighty and splendid fighters, but they have this
misfortune: They have stood up against the most terrible artillery
in the history of the world, the British artillery. .It has smashed
their trenches out of existence, and made their dugouts sepulchers
for living men and dead. When our men go across the Germans
come out absolutely paralyzed, and are glad to surrender. Not
only in artillery and air service, but in the morale of the fighting
men, we have discovered two things on the Somme: First, we
know we can beat them; and second, they know we can beat them.
And that is why the peace flag floats in the air today. That is why
we  are at the   beginning of what I think will be the last round."

Ottawa
Washington, Feb. 12:���Naval
experts predict that the German
fleet will again try conclusions
with the British if the submarine
starvation blockade against England fails. They base their reasoning on the belief that Germany's blockade is undertaken
as a measure of desperation, because the point of actual starvation has been reached in Geomany.
Before surrendering unconditionally to the Allies, however, after
the failure of this plan, Germany
will undoubtedly make a final,
supreme effort to wrest control
of the seas from the Entente.
As to the outcome, while a British
victory is predicted, Germany
will choose the occasion with the
utmost craftiness and, fighting
on her own terms, will inflict
heavy losses. If the conditions
precedent to such a battle present
themselves, the world may look
for the greatest and most destructive naval battle in history.it
is declared. Germany's failure
with both her submarines and
her high seas fleet, it is said, will
mean that the Allies will be able
to command absolute surrender
and to impose their terms on
Germany and her allies.
If Germany were brought to
her knees by the British blockade
she would have to surrender her
vessels, and this, naval experts
say she will never do, but will
prefer to have them sunk by the
British in battle, after taking a
toll of British ships.

German newspapers pray that
the zeppelin disappointment will
not be repeated in the case of the
submarine campaign. They express the conviction that less than
seven weeks of undersea warfare
will put England out of action.
Washington: The U.S is anxious to avoid war, but will refuse
to make any concessions. It is
believed Germany is playing for
time in her dealings with the
States, and hopes to postpone
action until the starvation blockade has succeeded or proven a
failure. President Wilson is preparing for war.
Large numbers of Americans
who still  remain  in  Berlin are
anxious to leave, but indications;.'

days, or even weeks.
Washington: The impatience
of shipping men over the forced
detention of American vessels in
their home ports because of Germany's U-boat war, appears likely to hasten a decision on the
question of armament for merchantmen. The solution probably will be the issuance ,of navy
department guns to merchant
ships desiring them.
