GOVERNMENT MAKES
HOSPITAL GRANT
SUM    OF    $12,000    SECURED    FOR
THE LOCAL  INSTITUTION
Hon. William Manson Has Been Aiding Board In The
Matter.
i
Yesterday the Secretary of t he
Prince Rupert Hospital Hoard received from Victoria a cheque for $2,-
000, being a special grant mad-; by
■the Government to Ihe local  instil u-
sjfi
_>. vion. This will  materially assist the
Board in the carrying out of its ohlt-
'  gations.
For the whole year there has been
a steady effort on the part of the
Board to secure recognition in this
manner, to meet special .demands
that have been put upon the institution here. Advantage of the visits of
Hon. Dr. Young to the city was taken
by the member of the Board to try
to induce him to grant the requests.
The good will of Hon. Dr. Young has
always been extended to the hospital
and' he promised to do what he could.
In William Manson, M. P. P., for
the district, the hospital has likewise
had a very warm friend, and he was
readily prevailed upon to use his influence in the direction of the grant.
On his latest visit the Finance Committee of the Hospital here took occasion before he left to make themselves felt in informing the member
that his life WjPuid not be very happy
if he came back without the grant.
He has been actively engaged on
it, and a few days before the cheque
came, word was received from him
that he had persuaded Hon. Dr.
Young lo make this grant 'which has
now come along.

Washington, Dec. 1G.—The Austrian reply to the American note relative t0 the sinking of the Ancona,
declines to disavow the sinking of
the liner, and refuses to punish the
commander.
It states that if the commander
had not destroyed the Ancona it
would have been a dereliction of his
duty. '^'"WS
Austria offers to exchange opinions
with Washington as a legal maxim is
involved.
The reply is considered unsatisfactory, and It is stated that President Wilson will decline to enter
into any discussion on the subject.
A break in diplomatic relations between Austria and the United States
is  anticipated.
THBEAT HELD OUT
OF INVASION OP
EGYPTIAN'   SOIL
An Ottawa despatch referring to
the fact that Parliament will open
January 12, says it can be stated
authoritatively that the Government
will introduce this coming session a
bill for the extension of Parliament
for one year from October 7th next,
when the term runs out. The bill
will be identical with the measure
which has been introduced in the
Britisli Parliament. This same proposal has already been made to Sir
Wilfrid Laurler by Sir Robert Borden, but the Liberal leader has so
far refused to commit himself as to
his attitude. It can also be stated
definitely that this will be the last
bill which will be introduced and no
oilier business will he dispatched
until the measure is disposed of.
Would Avoid Election.
The Government feels that in view
of the feeling in the country an election during the war should be averted. For this reason it is felt the
question of an extension of Parliament should be settled at once and
as soon as the House meets. It is
the only way to quell political turmoil and to make certain that there
will be no contest. If the Liberals
are honest and sincere in their protestation, the bill will be passed without much discussion. If the Liberals
are not they will oppose the bill.
There will then be but one thing
for the Government to do, dissolve
the House and appeal to the people.
The sole responsibility for a far time
election will be on the shoulders of
the Liberals. An appeal under such
circumstances will be made without
hesitation and' with every confidence
that the policies of the Government
Will be approved by an overwhelming majority.
Only War Measures.
If the bill to extend Parliament is \PWMttiGtiwttH^^
agreed  lo,  the  session  will then  be
utilized for the ordinary business of I g A     K  1^"R  A (""*"" I    TC^l^^
Parliament. The Governmenl, H caii1* ^   i*f*V^   **   J.V_/l^v
he   stated,   authoritatively,   will   Introduce no measures except those re-1
lnllng lo the war or rendered necessary by war conditions.
There will be nn railway subsidies I
and no bond guarantees nor will there ! J-j
be any serious controversial domestic
legislation. This proposal has already
been made tn Sir Wilfrid Laurler by
Sir Robert Borden.
If the Liberals assenl, and the bill
for extension of Parliament passes the
Senate, then Parliament will proceed j
to pass necessary war measures.
There will he no restriction on debates into war supplies and war esti-
mates and every facility will be given
foi- Investigation as done last session.
If Ihe hill is rejected then there will
he a  war-time  election.
London, Dec. 16,—The Bulgarian
Legation at Athens has authorized the
declaration that Bulgaria will postpone operations against the Entente
Allies.
"Our desire, says the declaration,
is to respect Greek neutrality."
Reported Invasion.
The Hague, Dec. 16.—An unconfirmed report says Bulgarian cavalry
has crossed the Greek frontier west
of Giegveli. The report reached here
from Saloniki.
Formal Protest Made.
Paris, Dec. 16.—A despatch to the
Temps from Saloniki says the General commanding the Fifth Greek
Army Corps, which has- been occupying Saloniki, has protested to General
Sarrail, the French eomander, before
the Greek evacuation of the city. He
has written a protest against the fortification work begun at Saloniki.
The protest, says the despatch, is
purely formal, resembling that presented in October against the Allied
troops upon their landing.
Quiet On  Dardanelles.
London, Dec. 16.—From the army
of the east comes a despatch saying
quiet prevails all along the whole
front of the Dardanelles. The Turkish artillery displayed less activity
on December 15.
An enemy's aeroplane which attempted to make a flight over our
lines was pursued by our machines
and was compelled to flee.
Our heavy artillery has continued
to bombard the batteries along the
coast of Asia.
Not Very Active
Fighting On West
Front Yesterday
Rome, Dec. 16.—The threat of a
Turko-German invasion of Egypt is
regarded as grave. Three hundred
thousand Ottoman troops are concentrated at Alessandretta and Aleppo.
German, agents are urging the Son-
ousl to attack Egypt from the west
and the Abyssinians to enter the
Soudan.
The Allies may obtain the military co-operation of Abyssinia under
a guarantee of independence as a
counter stroke against the efforts of
the Germans to foment a Mohammedan uprising.
Paris, Dec. 16.—An official report
says that in the valley of the Aisne,
southeast of Vailly, we successfully
carried out a sudden stroke yester-i
day against a group of houses held
by the enemy. We took about 1,500
prisoners without suffering loss.
On the left hank of the Aisne our
heavy artillery destroyed several
walls which have concealed the
enemy's bomb throwers and sharp
shooters.
On the heights of the Meuse our
batteries severely damaged works
and shelters of the enemy anu caused
several fires.        »
A Belgian official statement says
the day has been calm. To the south
of Dixmudc our artillery took effective acliun.'against' opposing batteries near Steinstraete. Our heavy
guns silenced the mine throwers
which had bombarded the French
trenches.

COMO.Y-ATLIN   REGIMENT.
To the Editor,—An opportunity is
offered the young men of the northern part of British Columbia to become members of a new contingent
for active service at the front. It
matters little whether the enlisted
man wears an officer's uniform, or is
in the plain clothes of one of the
ranks. There is honor in serving the
country of one's birth, or adoption,
In any capacity. The British nation,
of whicli Canada is an Integral part,
is on trial, ami will It be said that
we are not capable of following the
example of those who fought and
won under Wellington and other
great soldiers? The British nation
is on trail, and it all depends on ns,
individually and collectively, whether we shall be ruled by the autocrats
of Germany, or remain free men.
There is no avoiding'the answer to
the call to arms. On every man rests
p. responsibility that cannot be effaced. Scruples may be indulged in,
to one's heart content; but there is
no avoiding the supreme test of manhood, which is now going forth to
every young man in the Dominion.
The final answer must be given, and
there is no disguising the fact that
on it depends the fate of a nation at
war. Thousand's of our brrfve men
have answered and gone to the front,
and is there a man in this country
more valuable than those who are
struggling to uphold our honor and
our homes? If there is an eligible
man holding back, let him ask himself whether he is doing his whole
duty, and he will enlist in the contingent, now in course of formation.

Although the United Kingdom is
(he greatest fish producing country
of the world, Canada is at the present time exporting fish to the old
country, says Conservation, the pub-
I lication of the Conservation Commission. This, of course, is owing to
the war. So many trawlers have been
taken by the Admiralty that the
normal catch of fish has been greatly
reduced—it is said as much as 60
per cent. Fish forms such a staple
article of diet in Great Britain that
this unwonted shortage is very serious. Under these circumstances, Mr.
Bonar Law, the Colonial Secretary,
appealed' to Canada to come to the
rescue, and a sample shipment has
been sent over in the hope of developing a market for Canadian fish
In London, at least for the duration
of the war. Part of the shipment
was fresh, frozen fish, but the greater
portion was smoked and prepared. If
the experiment proves a success, this
consignment will no doubt be the
fore-runner of many more and larger
cargoes. It is oven possible that a
market may be thus established for
certain kinds of high-grade lish which
wi'i remain after peace is concluded
ami become a permanent item In

THE  MIMMi   PROSPECT.
When men of the repute of James
Cronin will spend years opening up
a prospect, as he is doing in the interior of the Province, it is practically an assurance that there is
something of real worth behind it.
The work which Mr. Cronin is doing
in the Babines, hack of Smithers, is
one of the best omens for mining
that there could be in this northern
district. It is a promise for great
things in the mining line. Mining
has now come into its own again in
Britisli Columbia. In the Kootenays
it is a nourishing industry. This district, rich in all kinds of ore, is now
likely to come into prominence' in
this line just at a time and when
money should be available.
LONDON DURING WAR.
II. B. Cooke, a well known Canadian journalist, writing his impression after returning from the war
zone, says of Old London:
"Bleak, grey and grim, with a curt
tongue and a cold eye, alert but iu-
scruitably calm in the midst of embattled Christendom, sits the great
city of the world—the capital of the
Empire. Furiously busy, yet as serenely methodical as though llioro
was nothing more to be done than to
handle the coffee crop of Brazil, the
cotlon of India, the beef of Argentine, the wheat of America and the
rubber of Peru, as in the old days.
Besieged with engagements, yet as
deliberate as though, instead of thousands of visitors, there was only one
asking to borrow money or to collect
it, buy goods or to sell them! On
trial for her life, and the life of the
civilization she gave the world, yet as
coldly indifferent, as gloriously arrogant, as though the conflagration in
Europe was a mere episode In a border raid in Beluchistan! Here squats
old, ugly, much-loved London, with
her shabby towers and her sullen
river, with her dirty fog, like a ragged shawl on a match-woman's shoulders, and her black-hulled ships, lhat
have trudged and totted and sweated
and fought their ways from the ends
of the farthest continents, swarming
at her docks, heaping them high with
the wealth of the Sphere! Here she
buddies, cadaverous and crabbed,
with none of the free airs of the West'
or the beguiling arts of the East or
tlie South, hut like an inexorable old
woman summoning to her gates,
though with never a word and never
a motion of the hand, rivers of sons
ami grandsons, and grandsons' grand-
s<\]s, who, though they may never
have seen her, bear the mark of her
making and obey. Her streets swarm
with lighting men. The crash of the
k'.ttel drum and the scream of the
pipes set loose Ihe memories from
her age-worn monuments. Scarlet go
the banners through her squares.
Silver flash the weapons in a beam of
winter light. Here in this drab place
sits she who was the mother of Gordon, Drake, Nelson, Clive, the mistress of Wellington, Cromwell and
tbe Elder Pitt. Decayed? Senile?
Softened by wealth? Enfeebled by
too long a use of power? Not one
tittle!
"Indomitable!"
The Ottawa Citizen says:
"In the best informed circles it is
said that the approaching session of
Parliament has been called for the
purpose of avoiding, if possible, an
election during the war. The Government has made a plain and direct
proposal that there should be the
same extension in Canada as in Great
Britain, namely for one year. If this
proposal is agreed to the session will
be utilized for the ordinary business
of Parliament. In that case the Government does not intend to introduce
any measures except those relating to
the war or rendered necessary by
war conditions. There will he no railway subsidies and no bond guarantees."
