NO GERMAN CRUISER CAN MENACE BRITISH TRADE
Believed By Experts That End Of Great Battle Is Nearing
Rumored That Five German Generals Killed At Verdun
Spanish Steamer Sank Of The South American Coast
Experts Believe Verdun
Battle Is Very Near End
Germans Giving Way
Paris. March 7.—The constantly diminishing action at Verdun confirms
the opinion which Is now expressed in
the best informed quarters, that the
end of the battle is near. Lieut.-Col.
Rousset, a military critic, in summing
up tlie second phase of the battle
says, this phase, which opened with
devesting bombardment was followed
by the fiercest kind of onslaught on
a Harrow front from Haudreniont
Wood to Douaumont. The Germans
not only suffered, so that It ended in
a complete failure, but suffered terrible losses.
Then came a desperate attempt
to turn our flank. This attack developed on Friday against our gun
positions on the Heights, of the
Meuse. The enemy was mowed down
pitilessly and were forced to retreat.
Germans Took Hill.
An official repor* 'ays that further
progress has been made by the Germans In the Verdun region, to the
west of the Meuse. They succeeded
by means of violent bombardment in
pushing along the railroad In the
neighborhood of Regenaville, capturing Hill 265.
MANY GERMANS KILLED.
Copenhagen.   March   7.—It   is   reported here that five Herman generals
have been killed In the fighting
which has taken place about Verdun
during the last few days.

grown tenfold.
The personnel of the fleet has been
doubled, he added.

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC.
City Fire Alarm
System
The City Fiic Alarm System is
again in commission.
The presence of mining men from
the United States in this part of the
Province augurs well for the development of the promising properties that
are located in this part of the Province. Along the coast and along
the line of the G. T. P. there is every
prospect for the coming summer being a very busy one.
An article taken from the Spokesman Review, of Spokane, refers to
properties in this part of the Province and within the zone of influence
of Prince Rupert. That paper says:
"The second instance within a few
days of the financing of a copper property in British Columbia hy Spokane capital is that of the Cassiar
Crown Copper Company, a substantial
block of whose treasury stock has
been underwritten by the Pohlmnn
investment Company.    Subscriptions
to* a large portion of the underwritten stock already have been secured.
"The property is strongly indorsed
by three well known engineers, each
of. whom gave It a personal examination. They are W. Clayton Miller,
formerly General Manager of the
Federal Mining & Smelting Company,
who is so well pleased with the prospects of the company that he has accepted the appointment of consulting
engineer; Raleigh P. Trimble of
Portland, Ore., who is Vice-President
and General Manager of the company,
and J. D. Galloway, Assistant Mineralogist of British Columbia.
'The consensus of the three Independent reports made by them is that
for partially developed claims in a
new district the holdings of the Cassiar Crown Copper Company show an
unusual number of openings exposing
pay ore. In seven places out of 10
the ore carries values of from i to
8 per cent, in copper across widths of
from twoto five feet, in a mineralized zone of sufficient width to permit
the presence of wide ore bodies below. The average value of the ore
exposed in all the workings is believed to be about 7 per cent, copper,
five ounces in silver and 40 cents in
gold per ton.
"The deepeest working on the property Is a 50-foot shaft showing a
continuous ore body, which assays ln
the bottom, the investigators say,
7.2 per cent, copper, $3.40 in gold
and 2.4 ounces of silver to the ton.
The noticeable feature of this development is the increase in gold
value and corresponding decrease in

March 15 on a 500-foot crosscut tunnel which will tap the ledge at a
depth of 250 feet. Drifts will then
be opened up on the vein, which it
is believed will be reached by the tunnel before August, and the extent
and value of the ore on this level

same prove satisfactory the mine will
be promptly equipped with a tramway and nut on a shipping basis.

MORE MEN THANWOMEN
HAVE APPENDICITIS
Surgeons state men are slightly
more subject to appendicitis than
women. Prince Rupert people should
know that a few doses of simple
buckthorn bark, glycerine, etc., as
mixed in Adler-i-ka, often relieve or
prevent appendicitis. This mixture
removes such surprising foul matter
that ONE SPOONFUL relieves almost
ANY CASE constipation, sour stomach or gas. The INSTANT, easy action of Adler-i-ka is surprising. C. H.

MR.  HARRY HANSON,
Prince Rupert, B. C,
Dear Sir:
This is to certify that the hot water system installed in, my
home is entirely satisfactory. It beats quickly, without any additional fuel to that requlreo' for necessary cooking and kitchen work, and
there is always an abundance of hot water for all purposes for which
it is intended. It is much superior to the method of heating water
previously Installed In the range, inasmuch as the water is now hot
instead of luke warm with the same amount of fire.
•It has, 1 believe, an additional advantage in the protection of
the firebox of the range from burning out, and I consider it the
cheapest and most efficient method I have seen in use.
Yours very truly,
(Signed)   M.  M.  STEPHENS.

BRITANNIA   RILES  THE  WAVES.
The announcement made, by Hon.
A. .1. Balfour in the House of Commons yesterday, io the effect that
there is not now a single German
cruiser that is in a position to menace British commerce, is a record
that is a proud one for the British
navy. It shows that that navy, as
has long been the boast, rules the
sea. The commerce of the world,
while necessarily disarranged through
Ihe progress of the war, has been allowed to proceed along well established lines through the protecting
agency of the British navy.
NOT  SAFE  OUT.
The rumor in the despatches today, which is to the effect that the
German navy has come out, is not
likely well founded. The statement
of 'ir. Balfour seems to meet It. and
n lie taken as indicating that there
ip little or no ground for the report.
Outsiile the Kiel Canal is not considered safe for German warships.
CHARGES ARE  I..Mil.
fConinued from Page One.3
"First, that the Governmenl or its
agents have for some time received
hi rue sums of money from .the Licensed Victuallers' Association for election purposes.
'Second, large sums of money
have from time to time been paid
by licence holders in the province to
agents or officials of the Government
for the purpose of obtaining concessions from the Government in connection with liquor licences.
"Third, that thousnnos of dollars
have beene paid to agents of the Government to stifle prosecutions under
the liquor licence ordinance.
"Fourth, that in Ihe year 1914 a
large number of licensees of the province paid the sum of $25,000 to Hie
agents of the Government to secure
Immunity from such extortion at the
instance of such ncents."

tWO     MEMBERS     OF     LIBERAL
GOVERNMENT ALLEGED TO
BE IMPLICATED IX THEM
Million     Introduced     To     Have     A
Thorough Investigation
Made.
For ihe third time within one
month J. E. Bradshaw, Conservative
member for Prince Albert, has
brought down charges in tbe Saskatchewan Legislature Assembly
thai have reflected upon the honor
and integrity of the members of the
Assembly.
The new charges which lie presented lo the House, directly implicated
two cabinet members—Hon. Goerge
A. Bell, Provincial Traesurer, and
Hon. Archie McNab, Minister of Public Works—while D. J. White, supporting Bradshaw, intimated to the
House there were "more yet."
The charges were made ln the following motion:
I, John Ernest Bradshaw, a member of this Assembly, am informed
aud verily believe that 1 can establish
by satisfactory evidence that the
asylum tor the insane at North Bat-
tleford has cost the province in consequence of graft, incompetence and
connivance of officials of the government, a very large sum beyond its
proper actual cost.
That many contracts in connection
therewith were let without tender or
sufficient opportunity for tender, at
excessive prices.
That contracts were cancelled
without cause or proper cause and
new ones given at increased or excessive prices.
That in connection with the electric
wiring of said building gross irregularities prevailed to the public lo«s.
That the Minister of Public Works
knew and permitted such irregularities to exist and continue.
That the contractors for the Regina
goal were permitted to substitute different and cheaper material for that
provided'in the specifications without
any proper reduction In fixed prices.
That In electrical work, the stipulated prices were greatly increased
and contracts manipulated to the
great loss of the public.
That the power house was not
buill according to specifications.
Thai in the purchase of the goal
site, through F. J„ Robinson, and associates, a sum of some thirty-eight
thousand dollars was lost to tlie prov-,
luce and that fresh evidence is available since the inquiry in relation
thereto heln before the Public Accounts Committee.
That, certain officers of the department have connived with other persons to defraud the public by means
of excessive prices on contracts for
purchases of supplies for wiring and
installation and have been guilty of
conniving at a participation in the
graft.
That tlie Hon. George Re" is directly or indirectly Interested in a
company nr companies having large
<<■ allnge v Ith the Di pari i le il of
Teli | hones.
Thai   the  Bald   company   or  com-
imule   hat    taki d      vanl i' such

Bel)  to i m t   pressure  on   i urn]  teli -

cure guarantee of bonds and have Installation work done by such favored
companies.
Be it therefore resolved thai this
House do humbly petition a Royal
Commission of judges be appointed
to Inquire into the sulu charges nnd
report the evidence from time to
lime to this House.
LOUD FISHER TO BE
MEMBER OF CABINET
Former First Sea Lord To Be Offered
An Importanl  Position.
London, March 7.—Reports cir u-
lated here that Mr. A. .3. Balfour.
First Lord of ihe Admiralty, is to retire, were denied In official quarters.
It is the concensus of opinion in
government circles that a place in
the cabinet will be found for Lord
Fisher, former First Sea Lord, whose
experience, ii is' said, would he invaluable in planning to meet the supreme naval effort Germany is expected to make.
According to the Chronicle, Lord
Fisher, who, since his retirement as
First Sea Lord, have been serving as
chairman of the war inventions
board, vyill shortly return to a prominent position in the government service, probably as a member of the

Grath—a novel which has been read
by hundreds of thousands.
Probably no better role could have
been selected for the handsome and
dashing young Mr. Brian than the
part of Thomas Webb in "The Voice
in the Fog." The very name of the
play suggests its subtle mystery of
tlier.,e as it was the voice of Webb
over-heard in the denseness of a
London fog which led to exciting,
melodramatic situations. Webb, who
falls heir to a title, wagers and loses
to a professional confluence man the
privilege of using the title for three
months. It is the spurious titled
gnetleman who places the youth in
embarrassment.
Among the Lasky players who appear with Mr. Brian are Miss Adda
Gleason, Frank A. Connor, Georage
Gobhardt, Ernest Joy and Florence
Smythe.

SERIES OF SNOW SLIDES
The G. T. P. Service Interfered With
Last Night.
The G. T. P. train, usually so regular in its arrivals was delayed last
night and did not reach the city until
after midnight. The delay was due
to the fact that some snow slides
came down in the vicinity of Mile 44,
requiring the regular train to stop
at Terrace until the way was all
cleared again.

THE JOICE IN THE FOG
IS PREMIER ATTRACTION*
Tie Morning Journal delivered to

The sale is announced of the G.
T. P. freighter Henriette to the Coastwise Steamship and Barge Company.
This company, better known as James
Griffiths & Sons, operate a fleet of
steamers and barges on the coast
and between Britannia Mines and Ta-
cotna smelters. James Griffiths formerly operated from Victoria. The
Amur, purchased by this concern, still
flies the British flag and the Henriette will also, it is announced, continue
to fly the Union Jack.
The increased output from the Britannia Mines Tnid Granby Bay, which
has of late taken place, and the fact
that the Leona of the Vancouver
Portland Cement Company which
was sometimes chartered to carry ore
to the Tacoma smelters, is no longer
available, may possibly have something to do with the necessity of providing another steamer for this business. The terms of the sale are not
known.

MR.   HARRY  HANSON,
Prince Runert, B. C,
Dear Sir:
This is to certify that the hot water system installed in, my
home is entirely satisfactory. It heats quickly, without any additional fuel to that required for necessary cooking and kitchen work, and
there is always an abundance of hot water for all purposes for which
it is intended. It is much superior to the method of heating water
previously Installed in the ran-Te, inasmuch as the water is now hot
instead of hike warm with the same amount of fire.
It has, 1 believe, an additional advantage in the protection of
the firebox of the range from burning out, and I consider it the
cheapest and most efficient method I have seen In use.
Yours very truly,
(Signed)   M.   M.  STEPHENS.
