Attacks Of Enemy
Repulsed At Avoncourt
Fighting West Of Muse
Paris, March 31.—In Argonne we
have repulsed two attacks with hand
grenades directed against Avoncourt.
West of the Meuse the bombardment has gone on with redoubled
violence. Last night the Germans
delivered a series of attacks in massed formation. They advanced along
three sloes at one time upon the village, which formed an advanced
salient for our line which it sheltered. On one side, our battalions after
furious lighting which entailed considerable sacrifices on the part of the
enemy, our troops were forced to
evacuate. The ruined village still
holds out.
East of the Meuse the night passed quietly.
In Wovre the Germans endeavored
on three separate occasions to capture from us the works east of Haud-
remont  but  were repulsed.

KEEPING  IT  REPUTATION
Exceptionally Long Programme Is To
Re Presented Again This
Evening.
With an exceptionally long programme of pictures to present, the
Westholme Theatre finds it necessary
j to start the entertainment at 6:30
j this evening. The programme of pic-
I hires is an exceptionally good one.
\ There are nine reels.

Alice Arm Centre
Of Attraction Now
For Mining Men
The effects of the Alice Arm excitement is manifest on every band
now. There is a general movement
in that direction from this city, while
arrivals from tho south state that the
same excitemen prevails in the cities
there, only the excitement Is more
intense than It 'Is here.
At the Government wharf last evening there was all the attendant circumstances to indicate that a new
camp was opening up, when the
steamer Princess Maqulnna came In.
On board the steamer was a large
party of men going in to engage In
the work of constructing the road,
uno'er the contract that has been secured by M. Albert of this city, In
addition to that there were others
connected with the development
there on board, also stores and equipment  in  quantity.
Sol Cameron, who is to have active
charge of the work on the road and
the wharf at the new camp, was
among the passengers. He went on
by the steamer to the north and will
lose no time in getting started.
Camps will be established and the
work got under way, even before
the snow goes off. Later there will
be additional men sent in as the
work progresses and there is an opportunity to make use of them.
In addition to the road that is to
be built along the 18 miles of country separating the waterfront from
the mining property, the company
will erect a sawmill at the Dolly Varden mine, and thus get the raw material for the construction works and
the mine that Is needed.
XV. Law, who Is opening a store at
the new camp, was a passenger also

GENERAL PERSHING
OVERTAKES VILLA
ENGAGEMENT HAS TAKEN PLACE
WITH FIVE HUNDRED MEXICAN TROOPS
American Loss Was Confined To Only
Four Wounded, None
Seriously.
Washington, March 31.—General
Pershing has reported that he has
found Villa and 500 of his troops
near Guerrero, San Antonia. Villa's
force was severely defeated at Guerrero on Marcli 29.
Villa's losses are placed at 30 killed. The Americans lost four wounded, none of them seriously.
last night. He had on board a considerable part of his stock, and is
taking more from here. He stayed
off at Prince Rupert until the next
boat on Monday, the Priuce Albert,
when be will go on to the new location.
Other stores sent stock up by the
steamer last night. Charles Vaughaii,
of the Acme Company, went on last
night. N. Sclieinnian will proceed in
in a few days also. The store is already ready ahd stock went in last
night.
C. XV. Calhoun, who has been in
the south for some months this winter, was another passenger on the
steamer, on his way back to start
active operations on the property
that he is Interested in on the II-
liance, opposite the wharf that is being constructed for the Dolly Varden mine. Mr. Calhoun say3, that
in Seattle he saw blue prints of the
mining properties in the Alice Arm
country that he did not know existed.
There and in Tacoma the excitement
about this new camp was quite intense, and enquiries were constantly
being made. He haa long had faith
in the location, and thinks, that now
with good legitimate work being done
by concerns that are able to carry it
out, the camp will come Into its own
and he one of the best of camps on
this coast.
All interested In the camp are
anxious that there should be no unwarranted boom with respect to the
camp there. They have faith In the
district, but do not want people to
be carried Into the notion that the
camp Is better than it really Is. Certainly the scene at the wharf last evening was enough to warrant the idea
that, before long that camp would be
an active place.

T, R. Mackenzie, of Vancouver, representing the Canadian Consolidated Rubber Company, is in the city
again, but without samples. During
a fire at Hazelton he had the misfortune to lose his samples, aud Is
accordingly handicapped to that extent until he reaches the south again.

A MINING BOON
THE   OPENING  OF  SPRING   WILL

-V As Never Refore This
Year.
With Usk as a centre, the district
in that vicinity is experiencing quite
a boom in a mining way. Arrivals by
the train last evening report that before many months pass there will
be several producing properties In
that part of the district.
The same is true of Hazelton district, and all along the G. T. P. The
high price of metal and the good
promise has prompted activity. As a
result the hills will be prospected
this summer as never before in the
history of the country.

would be "a just retribution for her
unpardonable sin against civilization
and humanity in causing this appalling war." It cites as a precedent
the Statute of Cromwell, which excluded imports in any other ships
than those carrying the British flag,
which statute was in force until the
middle of the last century.
Mr.  Asquith   recently  said,  when
speaking of the conference to be held
Total       392,790
The directorate of the company
was composed of four naturalized
Germans and that most of the workmen were British, but as the administrative staff was composed of Germans, the Prime Minister said it
must be regarded as belonging on the-)
"enemy list." In giving his decision
he said:

Empire. This necessarily very greatly
limits the scope of the discussion of
any such conference. It does not,
however, affect in any way such ac-
means Germans impose upon the generous toleration of the British people.
But it does not in the least affect the
true character of the firm, which is
controlled by German capital, directed by German shareholders, and the

be   exceedingly   difficult   to   build   a
commercial wall around the Central
Empires,
In those countries there are now
resident nearly one hundred and fifty I
million people, and they have in the I
past and they will in the future be
large consumers of the  products of'
other  countries.     It   is  one   of   the
fundamental    axioms   of   commerce!
that countries cannot import if they i
are  prevented   from   exporting,   because commerce is an interchange of
commodities, only the balances being j
settled in cash. The Teutonic Empires
have hitherto bought much from the,
British  Empire,  France,  Russia  and
Italy ano this fact has to be considered, as well as the volume of German
and Austrian exports in dealing with
This illustrates the attitude of Australia toward German business
houses during the war. How far it
will be continued when peace conies
remains to be seen, but it seems fairly safe to conclude that the Commonwealth will not be satisfied with
any half measures. Up to the present there has been no pronounced expression of public opinion on this
question in Canada, but it may be
truthfully said that the general desire
of the people is that they shall have
as little as possible to do with German or Austrian products after the
war.

THE MINING AWAKENING.
Prince Rupert seems destined to be j °04-
the centre of a real awakening of Certificate
mining interest this year. Those having the best interests of the industry and of the country at heart will
hope that there will be no boom in
the ordinary sense of the word boom,
which presupposes over speculation
or unduly advertising and selling of
prospects where values do not exist
to warrant the statements made
about them. The Alice Arm country
seems to be of sufficient worth to
warrant very considerable Development. Capital is now being spent
there by a strong company. Others
may follow. It is to be hoped that
this will not create a desire to sell
stock where there may be nothing to
back up the claims made by promoters.

THE PROVINCIAL FINANCES.
It may appear s.rangc that the
Government at Victoria should, in the
fare of an estimated revenue of only
$ , 00,000, submit an estimated expenditure of $11,300,000. But it
does not follow that at tlie end of the
fiscal year of 1916-17, or on March
31st next, there will be this deficit.

TAX NOTICE.
Prince   Rupert   Assessment   District.
Notice is hereby given in accordance with the Statutes that all assessed taxes, income and school taxes,
assessed and levied under the "Taxation Act" and "Public Schools Act"
i are now due and payable for the year
i
, 1916.
in lumbering ami mining, and the All taxes collectable for the Prince
better prospects for increasing pros-1 Rupert Assessment District are due
perity all  round,  which  Hie Budget  alKi payable at my office, situated In
refers to, should result in the provincial revenues exceeding the very conservative estimate of the Finance
Minister which is about a million
less than the last fiscal year, thus
causing the expenditures and revenues to more nearly balance.
The Finance .Minister's statement
shows that the Government have
pared the estimates of expenditure
down to the last cent. Since the
fixed charges of the Province amount
to $3,800,000, it is seen that it is
difficult for the Government to make
further reductions. For public works
there is the large vote of $3,000,000,
of which $2,500,000 is for roads,
streets, bridges and wharves. How
necessary this outlay Is, an expenditure which In some provinces Is
charged to capital account and added
lo the debt of the province, is to be
6een when account Is taken of the
numerous  deniainl

This Notice in terms of law, is
equivalent to a personal demand by
me upon all persons liable for taxes.
