GOOD COAL FOUND
IN THIS DISTRICT
Experts Have Been Active During Summer Look
ing Into Supplies That; are Easily Reached
Without Further Facilities In the
Way of Railways-G. T. P. Engineer Says That There Is
Good Indications In
Various Sections.
The coal supply of this part of
the country seems to be well, assured. This summer there has been
a number of engineers of note that
have been examining into the possibilities of this point In the way
of coal supply. During the past week
in fact there has been a very important party from the United
States looking at the outlook on the
Queen Charlottes. What the opinion of these men is concerning what
they saw remains with these men,
for they are not revealing to anyone
what their conclusions are.
There visited the Islands this
week also the Grand Trunk Pacific
engineer, Mr. Beaudette who has
been devoting a good deal of attention to this part of the province
during the summer. The approach
of the time when the Grand Trunk
Pacific will be through and in running order has doubtless caused the
company to have their expert make
a more than cursory examination
into the coal deposits that are to be
found here. Accordingly, the engineer has spent several weeks in
the interior of the province along
the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
this summer. He made the trip
across  the  province  with   the  chief
engineer of the line Mr. Kelliher,
remaining in the interior to examine the coal measures that there are
there.
While not giving much information respecting the showings, he said
in conversation last evening that
there was good coal to be found.
The Groundhog country had never
been visited by him and he did not
know what that was like from personal observation. The reports, however, all indicated that there was a
very valuable area of coal lands
there and this would come into
prominence in good time.
The coal that he had examined
was that that was within very easy
reach of the railway and there was
coal there that could well be used
by the company. There had of
course been too little done as yet to
lest the full extent .of the deposits,
hut there was no reason for doubting that there was plenty of fuel
within easy reach.
Entertained Last Night.
An enjoyable time was spent last
evening in the Roman Catholic hall
on Fifth street. The attendance was
good and arrangements wen carried out.
IN  THE   WAR BELT
Bitter Hostility Has Existed for Years
Between the Turks and the
Allied Powers.
MoiitenegMns Are   Fierce   Fighters,
Probably   Most   Determined   in
Balkans,
.Montenegro's declaration of war
serves to regularize the military relations between that country and
Turkey, hut it can hardly accentuate
the hostility that has existed for
many years. In fact, if on this continent there were two powers who
treated each other's subjects as have
Turkey and Montenegro we would
think they had been at war for some
time. Montenegrins have killed
Turks by the hundred, and Turks
have retaliated. Neither government
has given the other any redress,
but always some power or other interfered to prevent the formal outbreak of hostilities. Bulgaria, Servia and Greece throwing in their lot
with Montenegro, should the war be
permitted to wage, it is safe to predict some of the bloodiest combats
in history. It will he no repetition
of the Turco-Italian war, but savage
fighting at close quarters, with all
sorts of atrocities following In Its
wake. The probability is thai in I
of the fighting Will take place In
Macedonia, but us to ihe ultimate
victor it would he rash to prophesy.
General sympathies of Christian
countries will be, of course, with the
Serbs, for they arc Christian, and
at the root of the trouble is religion.
Had Turkey not sought to impose
the Koran on Christians, there would
have  been  no  Balkan  war.
The Montenegrins are probably
the best fighters of the Balkans.
They are the descendants of the
aristocrats of the Serb race, for
when Turkey conquered the old
Servian Empire the nobles fled to
the Black mountains over the Adriatic, and there for centuries have
defied the Moslem authority. For
five hundred years they have been
ftrttggling to make their principality a kingdom, and that they have
succeeded Is proved by the title of
their ruling monarch, King Nicholas
I., the father-in-law of King Victor
Emmanuel of Italy. The .onteneg-
rins are a ml'ltary race and in mariy
respects resemble the Japanese, having both the strength and weakness
of the soldier caste. The national
proverb of the Montenegrins is,
"Von might as well take from me
my brother as my rifle." They are
Inured to the use of arms, and in
their mountainous country are well
nigh unconquerable. In Macedonia
they will be fighting in the same
sort of country, and even were
they not to be supported by other
Balkan powers the task of Turkey
In subduing them would he a gigantic one.
. As .dated, the basic trouble in the
Balkans is a religious one. and goes
back to the time when the Turkish
Empire extended to the borders of
Austria, and included all the Balkan
States. We need go back no further
than the Treaty of Berlin, however,
to find .Montenegro's grievance
against Turkey. For this treaty, of
course, she should blame the signatory powers, and not Turkey, since
it is Turkey that has profited by
the treaty. When this famous attempt was made to solve the Balkan
or "no man's land" was left between Servia and Montenegro. It
was to he guarded by Austria as a
hinterland, and is called Novlbazar.
Its exact boundaries however, appear never to have been precisely
defined, except on paper, nnd Austria has left it absolutely undefended, Novibazar, therefore, has
been a favorite scene of Turkish
raids to subdue the Albanian Inhabitants, and In these raids Montenegrins dwelling therein have been
slaughtered. Because of the doubt
as to the boundaries Montenegro
has never been able to get any satisfaction for the massacre of her
citizens.
Had the boundaries been clearly
marked, .Montenegro would ..ave
objected to the existence of Novibazar because it constituted a sort
of harrier between her and the rest
of the Serb race. In this strip of
land It Is cafe to say that more lives
have been lost in times of peace
than have been sacrificed in the war
between Italy and Turkey. It he-
came necessary some time ago to
form an International coin mission
lo adjudicate upon questions in this
hinterland, and only a year ago the
commission decided thai Turkey
had a right: to cut Ihe hay growing
on  occupied  land   upon   It.  So Tur-
GREEKS CELEBRATE
OPENING OF WAR
Large Gathering of Them Assembled at the
Two Star Hotel Last Night and Spend a
Happy Evening Preparatory to Leaving for the Front --Music and
Dancing Used to Pass the
Time-Patriotic Songs
Sung By Band.
The Two Star Hotel, the headquarters of the Greek colony in this
city, was the scene of a lively celebration last evening when sixty of
that race that had been employed
on the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific arrived there and joined by
the local Greeks, tne declaration
of war against' the Turks was celebrated in a joyous manner The
men that have come from up the
line are paying their own expenses
all the way to Greece and will take
the field in hostility to the common
foe of the nation—the Turks. They
arrived in charge of their leader,
Nee Stadas, who is a man of nearly
fifty years of age. He has a grownup family and a wife In the Old
Land. He has served with the colors
and will take full charge of the
party that has come down the river
with him.
. Many of these men are not trained
soldiers, having left the Old Land
before they were old enough to
have to serve with the troops. They
have therefore not had the advantage of military training and accordingly are not as well equipped as
some of the others that are going.
Among them, however, there are
some men like the captain of the
party who have had their experience and are therefore qualified to
join the forces at the front.
But while they are not all trained
in arms, all are determined to share
In the war. Accordingly, they will
insist upon having a part in the hostilities. The untrained men are prepared to take their place among the
enemies of the Turks and are ready
to offer their services as guerillas.
They are determined that they will
not lie lacking when there is need
of men to drive the Turks out of
Europe and for that reason they are
bearing all the expense of their
transportation to their native land
for the purpose of forming independent bands that will serve on the
skirmishing lino as untrained soldiers.
These men have all been engaged
in the arduous work of railway
building and are in the best of form
for a campaign. To have seen them
dance and besport. themselves last
night as tney celebrated the fact
that they were leaving to take part
against, the traditional foe of their
country one could not well imagine
a better class from which to draw
an army. The men are the picture
of health, indicating that their life
in l he construction camps has not
been on? of privation. In their native dances they showed the agility.
:   kll ens.
Late iu the evening the party sat
down to n banquet in which the
principal Item was beer, they having purchased among themselves a
goodly supply, the house being unlicensed    and  therefore unable    to
furnish any strong drinks. There
was little approach to drunkenness.
however. Soft drinks were taken in
plenty, but there was no heavy
drinking.
Throughout there was a constant
allusion to the war in the Balkans,
and success to the allies was drunk
with a will and songs introduced to
indicate that their minds were all on
the homeland. The songs that were
sung were most of them recitative
of the glories of the ancient Greeks
and the fights for liberty that the
country' has had. With a will these
were sung and as the chorus was
reached these happy people rose
and showed in no unmistakable
manner that they were glad that the
hour had come for war with tlie
Turks.
Before the evening was through
the party entered into dancing. A
native horn was produced and to
the accompaniment of- tlvat music
the members of the party danced the
native dances of the Grecian people.
At the request of the captain the
dance of liberty was introduced and
this one, emblematic of the casting
off of the yoke of Turkey, was
danced by one or two of the com
pany, the others entering into the
spirit that was symbolized by the
dance. >
To the suggestion that there
might be no need of their going
back to the scene of the war these
men would not listen. They turned
a deaf ear to that, stating that they
were going at their own expense
and were ready to take the field as
guerillas independent of the regular
army. As far as could be understood
from them, the intention Is for the
whole party to remain together when
they reach their native land and go
to war in that way as a company
from this part of the world. l< may
be, therefore, that Prince Rupert
may be heard of in Ihe war. No
clue to the name under which they
might take part in the war was
given, but perchance there may be a
party of guerillas Hint may lie
known throughout the campaigns
as the Prince Rupert brigade, or
perhaps the body may hear the name
of the Grand Trunk Pacific. Certain
it is that If the men should care "to
adopt any such title the class of
men that is going soutli in thai
parly could safely be entrusted to
make a worthy name for the place.
The determined way In which Ihe
men expressed themselves upon the
question of the war and the innn-
uu. iu which they would deal with
the Turks was certainly enough to
.,..,.,, .hi..' one contented uol to belong to the opposing rare and be
within roach  of these Fellows.

COMPLETING G.T.P. AS
FAST AS POSSIBLE
General Superintendent Mehan Is at the Front
Himself Looking After the Putting of the
Ballasting In First Class Order at the
End of Steel-He Is Not Allowing a Day to Be Lost In
Getting the Road Completed That Far
It is evident that the Grand
Trunk Pacific is not allowing the
line to be delayed a day longer than
it is possible. This is made evident
by the course that is being pursued
by the general superintendent, W.
C. C. Mehan, who is at the end of
the steel conducting the operations j
himself. He is personally overseeing i
the work and there is no danger,!
therefore, that there is any time be-
ing lost that can be avoided. Mr.
Mehan is one of the most expeditious
railway men In the country and he
has shown at every stage of the
work here along the line that once
the road is ready for him there Is
no loss of time getting the steel
down and the line put in shape to
handle  trade.
At the present time with the
steel laid as far as it is possible
until the bridge over the creek is
built, Mr. Mehan is at the end of
the track seeing that the ballasting
of the last sections of the road is
got in the best of shape before the
winter sets in. The weatner conditions are reported to be good In the
interior and Mr. Mehan is making
the very best use of the time that
Is at his disposal in consequence of
the delay in track laying to get tlie
ballast on the line and put it in
shape to carry all that is turned over
to the line. The general superintendent was expected to reach the
city last night, but did not arrive.
He remained behind to take personal
cnarge of the work that he has in
hand and will not arrive in the city
it is said for a few days yet, or perhaps  until the end  of  the  week.
Reports from the interior are to
the effect that there is splendid
progress being made in the work
for the number of men that are employed. There is a shortage of labor
in all directions and many more
could find employment. With the
forces that are at hand, however,
there is good work being done.
With tbe railway in good shape
to handle freight this winter there
will be a large tonnage go in, it
Is expected, so that there may be
I no danger of a shortage along the
line of the construction camps during the coming summer. Then the
track will be following the work up
very closely from now on, so there
will not be the danger of any stoppage except from the lack of labor.

How Nelson City Is    Proposing    (<>
Raise  Money  for  City
Purposes.
(Continued from Page Three.)
Baby debentures, each of $100 denominations and hearing interest at
5 per cent., will be issued by 1 In-
city of .Nelson this year, If a suggestion made by Mayor Amiable and
favorably received by the council
is carried into effect, says the Nelson News. The denomination of City
debentures In the past has been
(100(1, and consequently it has been
necessary to dispose of the issues in
large blocks to oulslde firms of
bond buyers, .Mayor Annable believes
that the baby debentures would
attract small local Investors who
would rather put their money Into
city bonds, which he considers
would  be easily negotiable, and se
cure five per cent., than make sai
inns Iii bank deposits and draw
only four per cent, Probably the
first issue of the small dendmlna-
lion bonds will he for local im-
provemenl work. Each will be a
10-year debenture with ihe interest
payable half yearly. A suggestion
along iheso lines was mndo before
the municipal commission in its sessions here recently.

Tlie effect that a call to arms has
upon any people is shown in this
city at the present time in :hc case
oi   the local  Greeks.  No sooner did
ii • people learn Jiat there was
need of men in their own native
land to fight the enemies of tho
country than there was a general
rallying of them to uphold the
honor of I lie flag they recognize as
tneir own. These men are making
tremendous sacrifices. They are
quining work and paying their own
expenses to their own country' in order to be able to serve under arms.
A spirit that is thus shown is one
that, makes it difficult to overcome. Tlie Turks will find in facing ;i people like this thai they
June a heavy task to perform to
conquer their will.
While from a selfish motive we
would prefer to see these men re-
i; iln al work and aid in tlie completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific
thai means so much to this city,
there is every reason io honor the
patriotism that these men are showing. They are ready to otter their
lives uii that the Turkish power in
Europe may be curtailed. -There are
few who will noi hope them sue-
in  their undertaking.
RE VOTERS' LIST.
I am instructed by the City Council to publish tlie following notice
with regard to voting at the next
Municipal election:
The persons who will be inserted
on  the voters' lists are  as  follows:
1. Owners of real estate. This
means any person who has a deed of
land registered in the Land Registry
Office or -an agreement for purchase
of land registered in the Registry
Office.
Many persons have land under
agreement from the Grand Trunk or
the Government whose title is not
registered in the Land Registry Office, and their right to vote is doubtful. Therefore, voters so situated are
advised if possible io register either
us Householder or Licence holder.
2. Any person holding a trade li-
i lire may vote, but before doing so,
he must, in October, make a declaration showing his right to vote In
'Form 1. These forms can be obtained
al the Ciiy Clerk's office. The declaration must be filed with the City
Clerk within forty-eight hours after
it. is made.
:;. Any householder can vote. A
householder means a person who lias
resided in Prince Rupert from the
1st of January, 1912, and who occupies a dwelling, tenement, hotel or
hoarding bouse, or any portion of a
dwelling house, tenement, hotel or
boarding house. He musl also pay
all rates, taxes or assessments which
are not chargeable on land, and
whicli rates, taxes and assessments
so paid amount to not less than
$2.00. Water rates and dog licences
do not count. Practically the only tax
that c,an bo paid is the road tax,
$2.00, and any person who being a
householder as above described has
already paid his road tax must also
make a declaration before he can be
placed on the Voters' List.
All voters must be 21 years of
age and British subjects.

IN THE WAR  BELT
(Continued From Page One)
key cut the hay, but the Albanians
and the Montenegrins gathered the
harvest at the mpi ths of their rifles.
A couple of months ago the Montenegrins attacked the Turkish posts
on the frontier of Albania, killed
and captured Turkish soldiers, and
distributed arms among the Christian population. This is only the latest of hundreds of similar affrays
caused by the trouble over the
southern boundary of Novibazar,
Servia, which is on tlie northern
side of'this same barrier, has much
tho same grievances against Turkey
as has Montenegro. All tlie Balkan
powers have friends and relatives
among tlie mixed population of
Macedonia and the massacres and
oul rages there perpetrated by the
Turks have been as bitterly resented in tlie Balkan Stales as though
committed within llieir borders. The
trouble in Albania is a religious one.
The Albanians have never been conquered by the Turks, although they
are governed by them. They want
the Albanian commission dismissed
that now attempts to manage their
affairs, and direct negotiations established Willi the government. They
also want indemnity for losses sustained in the recent troubles, and
the arms returned lo them that were
surrendered last summer in exchange for hollow promises of reform. Macedonia wants a Christian
as governor, but declares her ambition to become part of the Bulgarian kingdom. Tlie Greeks, too,
have thousands of brothers in Macedonia, and have much the same feeling toward Turkey that the other
Balkan  peoples have

BULGARIA'S   ARMY
There Has Been Quite a Decided Force
Created In the Balkan
States.
Tin-key,   How ever,   H.is    a    Superior
Body     to That   ol     the    Allies.
How Armies Arc Divided.
The last few years have seen an
advance in the effectiveness of the
Bulgarian army, the organization of
which on really sound lines was
first undertaken by Russian officers
in the years 1879 to 1885. Bulgarian
peasants make excellent, soldiers—
full of fight, obedient and not easily
daunted by the hardships of war—
and the application of modern military science to these qualities has
gone far toward levelling the army
up to the higher continental standard.
Military service is compulsory in
Bulgaria, .save to the Moslems, who
may purchase exemption for $100,
and tho conditions are arduous. The
army is composed of an active reserve, a reserve force, and the militia, and While in times of peace
only the active army remains on
permanent footing, all save the militia are liable to be called on
should occasion arise. The latter may
be used only for purposes of defence within tlie frontier.
Two years with the infantry and
three with the cavalry is the period
of service with the colors, recruits
joining at IS in times of peace and
at 18 during war, and after that
there are eighteen years in the reserve, with annual training.
In this way some 24,000 young
men are embodied each year, and
the result of the system is the building up of a large war reserve of
trained men. This army is divided
Into nine divisions, each comprising
two brigades of four regiments each
and nine batteries, and there are in
all six regiments of cavalry, an arm
in whicli Bulgaria is somewhat
weak. The headquarters are at Sofia Philippopolis. Sliven, Schumia,
Kustchuk, Vratza, Dubnitza, Eskiz-
agord and Plevna.
Bulgaria is not as we 1 off in the
matter of armaments as in men, at
all events, as far as the infantry is
concerned, for while the active army
Is provided with the Mannilicher
rifle, part at. least of the reserve is
equipped only with the Bcrdan, a
weapon which is not regarded as being among the most effective in these
days. There is also a machine gun
section attached to each infantry
regiment, while the artillery is
armed with the Schneider-Canet
quick-firing gun and the Krupp
mountain gun. In addition, tlie
transport service lias, to some degree been  brought up  to  date.
As far as can he gathered from
the figures available, the peace establishment or number of the active
army is as follows:
Infantry     35505
Cavalry       5,660
Artillery     937
Engineers        3,412
Other  branches       4,079
Total     5(1,593
To this total have lo be added
the men in the reserve bringing
the number up to 220,000, and beyond these are the militia, a force
of some 55,000, for serve in the
country only. This makes the fighting fone of Bulgaria approximately 275,000 men and help might also
be expected from the Koniilajis, a
force of hair trained and experienced guerillas, numbered al about 20,-

in inpleted.   Ai   Zavechar,    near
the Bulgarian frontier, are five forts
and Plrol is always provided wdth
works,
In Servia military service is com-
pulsorj and universal. Liability is
from 18 to 50 years but recruits
join at 21, and complete their service at 45. The national army has
Hire,- "bans." The first is the active
army and Its reserve, Constituting
I !u first line. Tlie second "han" is
supposed lo provide reserve troops.
Ti..- third is the territorial army.
T ere Is also the "levee en masse,"
containing all who have passed
through tho national army and all
oilier males between 1 and 50 years.
The Servian soldier spends ten
years in the flrsl  "ban," six in the
second, and eight in the third. In
war the field army of five divisions
presents a total strength of 1.75,000
men, besides an available reserve of
95,000 men.
Greece, through her military service is also compulsory and universal, has a peace strength of only
20,000 men of all ranks and cau put
only 50,000 men in the field In
war times. Service begins in the
twenty-first year and lasts thirty-
six years—two years in the active
army, eleven In the first reserve,
nine in the second reserve, and fourteen years in the national guard.
Postponements iand reductions of
service are permitted in certain
cases, however, conditioned on the
payment of a tax.
The Greek troops are now being
re-armed with Mannlicher-Schon-
auer rifles model of 1903. The field
artillery is armed with Schno'der-
Cauct Q. F. guns.
The navy consists of three small
battleships of 5,000 tons—the Hydra, the Spetsal and the Prara.
There are nineteen torpedo boats,
mostly out of date. The personnel Is
about 4,941 men. An armored cruiser of 10,000 tons, named the Aver-
off, has just oeen built in Italy.
The war strength of Montenegro
is variously estimated at from 30,-
000 to 50,000 men. Her army is,
however, in a period of transition.
Every citizen is liable to military
service from the eighteenth to the
sixty-second year of his age—two
years in the recruits class, thirty-
three years in the active army, and
ten years in the reserve. The infantry are armed with Russlau
"three line" rifles of the 1898 pattern, the artillery with various guns
of not very recent model.
On paper, at any rate, Turkey
has it is estimated, upward of 1,-
000,000 troops to oppose against
the force given above, but of this
huge total it is doubtful whether
at least half would be of any real
fighting value in the field, despite
the reorganization which is proceeding. The exemption from compulsory military service, formerly granted to Christians and the population
of Constantinople, on the payment
of a fee, has been revoked, and all
Ottomans are now subject to service. Arabs and Kurds however, who
are also liable, evade the law in
large numbers, and there are certain recognized rights to exemption.
The empire is divided into seven
military districts, and last year the
reorganization of the forces into
fourteen -army corps began. In all
there are forty-two divisions,, some
of them with ten battalions in
peace and thirteen in war, and
others with seven in peace and ten
in war. In times of supreme necessity, all males up to the age of 70
can be called on to join the colors,
and recruits liable to service are divided into the Nizam or regular
army, the Rediff, and the Mustah-
fiz, the period of service being three
years in the first with six in. the
reserve, nine years in the second
with two in the third.
The Nizam has twenty-two divisions, with 357 battalions; twenty
cavalry brigades, with 207 squadrons, and sixteen artillery brigades
with 271 batteries. Thesj troops are
said to number 260,000 men, with
120,000 as a reserve; while the
Rediff and Mustahfiz number between 600,000 and 700 000. The
troops are armed with Mauser repeating and Martini-Henry rifles;
while the. artillery, composed entirely of the Nizam, or regular
army, lias guns of various Krupp1
types.

GREEK'S   LEAVING
Band of About Sixty Quit Work Beyond
Hazelton and Start for
Europe.
Train Last Night Brought the Party
In—Arc Keeling Jubilant Over
Prospects   of   Service.
The train from Hazelton last
night brought a party of over sixty
Greeks who are army reserve men
bound for the seat of war. The men
quit work on the line of railway
construction upon hearing that there
was need of men to join the colors
in the homeland, and at once came
to the Coast to leave for the south
en route home.
Tlie men are jubilant at the prospects of service. They are so overjoyed at the opportunity of joining
the colors and serving against the
Turks that they became lively before leaving and in their haste to
get off to the front were not very
careful about showing their identification cards entitling them to
transportation, Accordingly it was
reported to the police here that
there might be some trouble. This,
however, was unnecessary. The men
arrived here in orderly manner and
will leave in a day or two for the
south.
It is questionable whether the
army of Greece is very anxious to
have many of these men who are
living in this country come    home.
There appears to be all the men
available at home at. the present to
serve the needs of tho country in
the war that has been undertaken.
The latest news from the seat of
the war is that, there arc men enough
to meet all the requirements of the
government for the present. Tho
residents on this side of the Atlantic
might  therefore be slow  in quitting
