Forty - Five Thousand Germans Killed In Recent Fight
The Italian Government Requisitioned German Ships
Price Of Halibut At
This Port Was Eight
And An Eighth Cents
Yesterday was Fish Day in Canada
—a day set aside at the request of
tiie Fisheries Association, for the j
purpose of encouraging a larger use
of fish throughout the Dominion than
ll now the ease. By co-incident the
price of halibut in this port reached
its highest figure yesterday. The price
prevailing was 8 1-8 cents a pound
to the fishing boats. The quantity
of halibut in port is not large. There
have been light catches so far this
year for the most part. Prince Rupert has been receiving the big share
of the halibut caught, and the demand has been very pronounced.
H. 0. Roberts, of the San Juan
Company, bought the independent
catches that were in port yesterday,
at the figure given. None of the
others bought, but the purchases of
Mr. Roberts were not large, when
compared with what has many times
been the case here. He purchased
about 20,000 pounds.
Tlie Zebasse, Capt. Parsons, of the
Canadian Fish & Cold Storage Company, came into port yesterday. She
hail ",8,000 pounds on board, which
is practically a full catch for her.
Willi good weather conditions and
good fresh bait, it is anticipated that
there should be good sized catches
brought in from now on.

POWERS IN NEAR EAST
LOOKING TO ALLIES
FOR SOME MONEY
Athena, Feb. 29.—Alarmed at the
Russian advance In Asia Minor and
at the inability of the Germans to
render aid, the Turks and Bulgarians
are asking for an understanding with
the Entente Allies.
Bulgaria fears that she will lose
her capital of Sofia, and both powers
are greatly alarmed over the new
turn of events. They ask for the observance of territorial integrity.
The Turks are hastily evacuating
Trebizond and the neighboring ports
on the coast of the Black Sea.

Alice Arm Shaping
For Commercial Work
In Early Spring
Alice Arm promises to be a record
mining camp this summer. Things
are now shaping up well for this. The
properties that are being worked
are all looking excellent ann general
activity is prophesied.
W. M. Law, well known here, who
now lives at Houeton, ln the Bulkley
Valley, has just returned from Alice
Arm. While there he went into the
whole situation from the standpoint
of locating In a general business. He
has decided to do so, and will erect
a store near the site of the proposed
wharf and will put in a stock of mer.

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC.
City Fire Alarm
System
The City Fire Alarm System is
again in commission.
Amsterdam, Feb. 29.—Forty-five
thousand have been killed in the
lighting about Verdun. One regiment
has been formed out of the remnants
of ten others.
Intense Fighting.
Paris, Feb. 29.—The bombardment
north of Verdun is continuing with
great intensity. East of the Meuse
there has been a resumption of
violent local attacks.
Near the village of Duaumont the
fighting came to a hand to hand encounter. The Germans were repulsed by the French troops.
After an Intense artillery fire the
Germans captured the village of
Manheulles, but a counter attack
brought the French to the western
boundary of this location. The French
now hold Manheulles under their
fire,
In Lorraine the Germans succeeded in occupying small sections of
French tren-ehes, but were very shortly driven from these positions.
May Mark Change.
The French counter attacks at Verdun may mark, the battle raging
there, as the beginning of the end of'
the war on the western front, according to military authorities.
The opinion is held that the trenches have literally been scrapped, and
the deadlock, arising from the long
drawn fortress so constituted, has
been   replaced   by   the  old-fashioned
mortars, with ali the heavy artillery
used in the Serbian campaign and
part of that formerly employed on
the Russian front.
GERMANS PAID
LITTLE ATTENTION I woman suffrag
the Dolly Varden, Is giving such excellent results, Is expected here on
Thursday from the south. He will
on his arrival give his attention to
the letting of the contracts for the
building of the wharf and for the
construction of the road from the
wharf to the mine. This work will
probably run into $100,000. The
road is 18 miles long to the nearest
property. It Is a matter of getting
a road along the face of a rocky
mountain, which at one place at
least is along the face of a precipice
in reality.
There will be well on to 1,000 men
employed in the camp, it is believed,
this summer. It Is thus evident that
the camp is going to be one capable
of supporting a large population. The
mine will lie developed also, with as
little delay as possible.
n. Ovlndsen is going to ere.(- a
large hotel there. The cost of the
building planned Is put at $10,000,
.1. Crawford, of this city, is also preparing for an active year there. He
lias taken horses in and will be prepared for all kinds of work. The
camp is not dependent upon Hie one
properly, the Polly Varden, but other
rich prospects exist there.

IV COMMON'S
Ottawa, Feb. 29.—Hon. William
Pugsley moved in the House of Commons last night ihat the franchise
be given to the women of all provinces where provincial woman suffrage has been allowed. The motion
was defeated.
The   battle   Of   Verdun   Illustrates j General    von    Deimllng,    known    in
not only Ihe difference In tlie French ' France as one of the mosl  brilliant
and German modes of attack, but also ' of (he German general officers,
a   fundamental   divergence   between
the Glial and Teuton. France stands
for the Individual as the pivot of all
action; Germany for scientific efficiency, with the individual not considered, provided the mass succeeds.
The French In the Champagne offensive last September relied on the
human factor of surprise. They dealt
a sudden, staggering blow that won
in a single day nearly a hundred cannon and twenty thousand prisoners.
The Germans, on the contrary, begin
with ponderous momentum, In the
hope that the pressure steadily maintained and ever increasing may ultimately burst all barriers.

The German forces are known to

Name Has Fascination,
The resoluteness of the Germans to
capture the fortress Is explained by
the fascination the name Verdun has
had on the minds of the German people since 1792 anu Hie consequent
moral value of its [all to the Germans. This psychological position, In
the judgment of high military critics,
explains tlie presence of Emperor
William behind the troops and the
orders of the day issued to Hie army
by the Cnown Prince and the generals-.

The war is bringing out the truo

shown in the brutality practised toward prisorers and those unable lo

Eye Troubles Corrected
Mr. Bulger has had over ten years experience In sight testing
and fitting glasses, and last mid-summer took a post graduate
course, which included the latest discoveries in tb science of optometry or eye measuring. One of the most imi ortant is dynamic skiametry. The new method of Prof. A. J, Cross, of New
York, in which the eye is measured by a beam nf reflected light
and anjj error Is recorded.
But we do nol simply rely on one method; each eye is tested
separately, in three different ways, besides trying the muscular balance, together and the nervous  acutenees.

MINERAL WEALTH,
The mining outlook for the summer, as far as this territory is concerned, is very good. The country
tributry to here is not a producer
of one kind of ore only. As a matter of fact there is scarcely a mineral
ot commercial value but what this
country produces it. The resources
In this line are of tlie most oiversified
character. The prospect for quite full
development of these resources is
good. With metals phenomenally
high in price there is every inducement for the prospector to become
busy, and for the developer of properties also to be alive to the promising
locations!
HIGH   PRICE OF  FISH.
Yesterday halibut readied a record
pi'i as far as this port was concerned, flie sum realized by the fishermen was 8 1-8 cents a pound, which
certainly is a very high figure when
compared with thai paid some years
ago. The price is regulated by supply and demand, and for a variety
of reasons the fish is now very scarce,
with the consequent result that the
price has soared high. Under present-
nay conditions, with fast express
(rains and iced cars, the whole continent is practically being served from
here in the matter'of halibut.

GERMANS PAID.
(Coninued from Page One.)
day evening fifty-six hours later that
I was picked up by a German patrol
and made prisoner, at tlie dressing
station where I was first taken the
surgeon who fixed me up remarked
that he hoped I would not have a
stiff knee as a result of the wound,
evidently not thinking it serious. The
treatment we got there was all right,
but a few days later we were sent
into Germany, nnd when we got there
very little attention was paid to our
wounds. The dressings were changed
only twice a week, when it was impossible to allow them to remain
longer. As a result of the lack of
attention my knee got in such bad
condition that they had to amputate
the leg above the knee, and the
English surgeons say it was far from
being a workmanlike job. Not only
did we suffer from the lack of attendance, but the food was bad. I was
glad when the chance came to be exchanged and I got hack to England
in August."
Under careful nursing in England,
Pte. Davey's health improved. He is
in excellent spirits over the prospects
of an early return to his home, even
if he is travelling on crutches.

There reached the city last evening Wm. McAdam, who has been at
work on the property in which he
is interested, the Red Rose, which
lies on the opposite side of the mountain. He is making steady progress
with a force of men doing necessary
development work. Mr. McAdam expects this summer to be in a position
to do some shipping, even If it is
hot on a large commercial basis.
Adjoining the Rocher de Boule, the
Highland Boy, now being developed
by E. P. Spaulding, of Spokane, Is
expected to make a similar showing
to the Rocher de Boule. The property
Is now being transferred, and until
the legal side Is adjusted the work
will not be carried along as energetically as it afterwards will,
This summer should see very
'harked activity at the mountain
camps.

STANDING ARMY
OF  137,000 MEN
VOTED FOR U. S.
The house military committee at
Washington has voted for a regular
standing army of 137,000 men, with
a two per cent, allowance for recruiting, bringing the number up to 140,-
000, which is slightly more than the
war department asked. The Republi.
cans and three Democrats carried the
vote.
Voting in the committee began
with a proposal for 220,000 men. The
number was gradually scaled down
until a proposal for 150,000 men was
beaten by one vole. Then the Republicans and1 three Democrats put
through the provision as it was finally
accepted by the committee to be Incorporated in the bill to be presented
to the public.
The war department's estimate of
additional officers for the regular
army also was increased from 786 to
1,000.
The section for reorganizing tlie
National Guard was framed to provide for a maximum strength of 424,-
000 men, of which fifty per cent, must
be recruited within two years.
