GERMANS FAIL IN ADVA
ALLIES ADVANCE A LITTLE ON FRENCH SIDE
Allies On French
Lines Proved Too
Much For Germans
Paris, Jan. 20.—Last evening the
enemy gained a footing in one of
our trenches north of Notre Dame
Delorette. This morning they were
driven from It by a counter-attack.
In their retreat they left in our
hands more than one hundred prisoners.
In the region of Albert an attack
south of Tbiehval which had progressed as far as our wire entanglements was thrown back. Three successive attacks on Labolsselke met
the same fate.
In Argonne Ihe enemy was repulsed after a hand-to-hand struggle.

ally list of the Princess Patricia's charge, which carried everything helms just been received by tbe .Militia
Department, and is as follows:
Three wounded (one seriously ), one
injured, and one seriously ill.
The Canadian regiment at tlie
front distinguished itself a few days
ago in a stirring bayonet charge at
the place near Ypres known as Dead-
man's Valley, according to the London Dally Chronicle's correspondent
in Northeast France. "The Germans,"
the correspondent says, "had  moved
I
a   great   mass  of   men   against   this
spot on the British front. Mud helped the thin British line to hold, but
the honors were barely even until
the Canadian regiment hurried up
from  the  rear.
"Suddenly there was heard a roar
of' voices, ancl a long line of slouch-
hatted men with fixed bayonets
rushed forward with the battle cry,
'For Canada and Old  England!'
fore it. Trench after trench fell, and
the Canadians did not cease until
the Germans brought mi their artillery. - Tbe ground gained extended
over a mile in front."
H. S. Clements, M.P., Is Expected «In Western Galicia
H. S. Clements, M.P., expects to arrive here on Sunday evening by the steamer Venture; He will remain over until Wednesday morning, when he leaves for Ottawa by the G.T.P. to attend
the  session  of  Parliament  which opens on February 4.   Advantage
will  be taken of his visit to Prince Rupert  to  go  into the subject
of the fishing situation here.

Back to the Land.
This is a most interesting subject
to citizens of Prince Rupert and
Northern British Columbia. The cry
of "back to.the land" has been
beard for some time, but there has
been no incentive, except In minor
rases, to create a real desire In the
majority of present day people for
working o» the land themselves.
Willi the prevailing crises there is
not only an incentive but people are
obliged to consider the question of
following in the footsteps of our
forefathers and so take up land ancl
Farm. The cost of living has been
and is far too high. One of the chief
causes In Canada being the fact that

Wearing    of    Wrist
Watches.
A warning Is issued in tho Berliner Klinisihe Wochenschlft ngain.'l
the wearing of wrist watches by German soldiers in the field. Tiie author
of the article, Dr. Melcbior, relates
that in treating eases of wounded
soldiers be found many who had suffered horrible wounds as a result of
this, their wrist watches having
been Btruck by bits of shrapnel,
which thereupon caused a great
spreading wound and Imbedded
parts of the watch in the wrist.
The danger Is the greater, he adds,
because the watches are usually worn
on the left wrist, and it is the left
band and arm that, as a rule, are
wounded, rather than tbe right.

RICH AGRICULTURAL AREAS
(Continued  from     age One.;
iness may be successfully carried on
here under right management; good
opportunities are offered.
Further east to Hazelton mixed
farming should be practised, with a
leaning towards fodder, grain, etc.,
as well as fruits on the slopes. The
fact must not be overlooked that for
the Skeena District, livestock must
be given a place. As yet only small
numbers can be provided for, but as
time goes on the farmer must increase his stock in proportion to the
land under cultivation and this will
enhance the fertility of the soil.
Some splendid timber exists, ln
parts of the Skeena valleys which it
will not be wise to ruthlessly burn
because as mines, etc., open up,
such timber will be needed. Eastern
Canada and the United States have
learned a lesson that it will be wise
to conserve the best timber. Of
course, British Columbia Is doing
likewise.
Climatic Conditions.
The climate nearer the coast is
equable, towards the interior more
cold is experienced. At Terrace about
9 degrees below was recorded last
year, and about 85 in the shade. The
precipitation is estimated at 45
Inches. Towards Hazelton more extremes of temperature are found, but
loss   rainfall.
Bulkley  Valley.
The Bulkley Valley is about 130
miles long, stretching from Hazelton
to Decker Lake, and is from one-
half mile to ten miles wide. It possesses about 120,000 acres of agricultural land. Here a more open
country is found ancl the clearing is
light, costing from $30 to $00 per
lore with soil that is loam and clay
with a subsoil of sand ancl clay. Various grains, fodder crops, vegetables
and bush fruits may be sucessfitlly
raise,] and hardy fruits with the necessary treatment. Livestock will
form the i ili f branch of agriculture
for this dlt trlct, with dairying as a
"iliy. The temperature varies

clover crops should be grown first so
as to remedy the depletion.
The McBrlde, Willow River and
Yellowbead Pass districts are being
settled and the timber limits are
now about to expire. Salmon River
Plains, north of Prince George, are
also  important.
liella   Coola.
Bella Coola is about 2nd miles
from Prince Rupert. The valley prop,
er is 50 miles in length and one to
three miles wide, and is most productive. This is an old settled valley
Scandinavian people, and now
other settlers are coming in from
different parts. There is some heavy
timber growth and the clearing costs
from $50 to $350. Nearly all of the'
hardy varieties of grain, roots, fruits,
vegetables, etc., are being raised
here. Livestock thrive well.
The  Naas.
Aiyansh, the main point of the
Naas, is about 120 miles from Prince
Rupert. The valley runs almost parallel with the Skeena and is about 00
to 100 miles north of it. On either
side of the river narrow lowlands of
rich river silt soil exist, with light
clearing and draining and dyking in
some places may be needed. Fodder
crops, vegetables, etc., may be raised.
As one proceeds east and north the
valley opens out ancl contains much
very rich open land. Above Aiyansh
the valley is undulating and is flatter and lower than the Skeena. The
I higher lands will produce tree fruits,
etc.
Graham   Island.
.Massett, the chief port, is 80 miles
from Prince Rupert. A mild climate
prevails with a precipitation of 00
inches. On the cpast fruits, vegetables, etc., may be raised, and in the
interior sections where open land
and muskeg formations exist, after
treatment dairying may be prosecuted. Some herds of wild cattle in the
north graze all  the year round.
Porcher Island is 75 miles in
circumference. The main point of
call, Refuge Bay, is 2.1 miles away
from Prince Rupert. Somewhat similar conditions to Graham Island prevail. Nearer the coast poultry, small
fruits, vegetables, etc., should be
gone in for. From the coast In moss
or muskeg lands predominate,
which requires special treatment but
may he made productive grass lands.
Smith and other islands, as well
as the mainland near the coast, have
somewhat heavy timber. Tlie soil,
decayed, vegetation and muskeg in
parts, offers chances for mixed fanning. Being near Prince Rupert, specializing in regi tables would be
recommended,
Atlin, farther nortli, offers oppor
tunitie foi i griculture In the matter of vegi tables. Transportation fa-
■ as had in the past been a gr< al
draw back. i Ills would li tproi e,
however.
Markets.
Prince Rupi rt naturally It the
main . dng as well as receii Ing
point. There will spring up markets
all along the line, especially as mm-,
in", etc., develops, but the main
niarket for points west, especlall
the Skeena District, and the Island;
Bella Coola, ind Ihe Naas, will be
Prince Rupert.
Local merchants have been and
are anxious to do business and reciprocate trade with fanners and set-
I!,,,..-    'p1.,.     ,..,   i ■ .,   .    ■  |    ;..   ..   posl
tion to procure markets for northern
;,rof1u?9 which the individual fanner
cannot.    Tl '       ,  city
with co-operative growing and selling, should also encourage farmers
and settlers to cater to the local
trade. At these places, for instance
the Skeena District, large and small
fruits, vegetables, hay, meat, butter
eggs and poultry may be raised ancl
sent here, the same applying to
Bella Coola. The Islands raising
small fruits, vegetables, poultry
etc.
Local   .Markets.
As tbe .Naas Valley develops local
canneries, etc., will take the produce.
Eventually a further market at
Prince Rupert will be.found.
Tlie Bulkley and adjoining districts will also ship certain produce
to this market, fodder and dairy
products particularly.
The Interior. The country nearer
and in the vicinity of Prince George
will look to the mines and Prince
George as a market principally.
The G.T.P. Railway dining car
service will call for produce of uniformity and quality. Such may be
raised. It. is a matter for the most
enterprising districts to secure tills
trade.
Crops   Already   (ironing'.
At our local and other fairs we
have seen large and small fruits,
roots, vegetables, grain, corn, etc.,
from the Kitsumkalum and Lakelse;
grains and roots from the Bulkley;
vegetables, small fruits and roots
from the Islands, and fruits, vegetables, roots, grain and corn from
Bella Coola. These various crops
have been raised by farmers as well
as on the Government Experimental
plots, thus showing that this northern country already can grow all
agricultural produce necessary for
its people and stock. The time will
come when not many articles of
produce need be shipped In from
the south. ,
Season.
i
The growing season in the north
is somewhat shorter than 'in the
soutli, but this is counteracted somewhat by the length of the clays and
thus we have quicker-growth.
Summer Frosts.
These occur in parts of the interior but such take place in low-lying sections. The high lands are free.
As the country becomes more opened up and the land becomes cultivated and drained summer frosts will
cease.
Irrigation.
This, although not essential In
many parts except on the higher
lands, is a thing not to be lost sight
of. In the dryer sections where water
can be procured a farmer may almost guarantee his crop by irrigating.
Government Experimental Plots.
These have been established for
demonstration as well as experimental purposes, throughout the
northern district. Thus placing the
Department In a position to give to
farmers and settlers reliable information oil the spot.
Mr. Chairman, a few moments
with such a topic as this one Is unable to go into details, but can readily see, Sir, Hie vast extent of land.
the great possibilities In tbe North.
How soon the country will become
more thickly populated is difficult to
predict, bul it should not. be long.
The country needs workers consisting of communities of families. To
such success will come. Prince Rupert as a city must do her part, the
people' on the land must no theirs,
tlie transportation companies have
theirs, and the Government its part.
Obstacles are become us in Hie development of the country as in each
individual business. These can and
must be overcome by all of us doing our share of work and being optimistic In encouraging our present
and new neighbors to realize that
before us lies a rich provision that
will yield many fold according to the
labor and enterprise we'extend.

THE GRAND  FLEET OF THE  NATION  HAS BEEN  HER
STRENGTH.
The Command of tbe Sen Has Meant
Everything in the
Conflict.
"Tbe peoiile of the British Empire have learnt much during the
last three months and will learn
more still, before the war is over, as
lo tbe true source of their strength,"
says the Round Table. "Command
of tbe sea, now, as always, stands between tlie Empire and destruction.
Command of the sea is all that separates victory from disaster. So long
as the British navy commands the
sea, the British Empire cannot be
defeated. If it loses command of the
sea the Empire cannot win. All discussion of financial, economic, or
other war problems must finally
come down to that, simple elementary truth; and It would be well were
it burnt into the mind of every subject of the King throughout the
world.
How  Britain  Won.
"This country has won her great
struggles mainly by defeating her
enemies' fleets, and partly by tbe incidental method of destroying their
commerce. After more than one nun.
dred years, her supremacy at sea is
again challenged, and, altered in
many respects as the problem is, its
grand outlines are still the same.
England has, it is true, in times of
peace wisely or unwisely, abandoned
some weapons of sea power that she
formerly wielded with effect. She
cannot, since the Declaration of
Paris, touch non-contraband goods
consigned to the country of her enemies, when carried in a neutral ship;
nor can she do anything to interfere
with enemy exports carried in neutral ships. 'Moderation in war,' as
Lord Fisher says, 'is an imbecility,1
and we may deplore now this diminution of our powers, since, so far as
trade is concerned, if renders the
power of our navy more defensive
than offensive. Yet. it does not nffect
our sea supremacy. Nothing will affect, that but the defeat of the fleet
itself.
Everything   Lost.
"If such defeat were ever to come,
then Great Britain and all her dominions would lose everything; empire, possessions, shipping ancl commerce. The colonies would be taken,
their coaling stations seized, their
ships sunk and their commerce de
stroyed; all that would be an easy
task for a victorious fleet. Neither
conventions nor declarations, neither
Hague tribunals nor laws of nations would prevent our foes from
employing every weapon to their
hand for our destruction.
"Fortunately, we have good faith
that the British fleet is more than
equal to the task before It, and for
this let us be thankful that we do
not listen tn those misguided doctrinaires, who, with their capacity to
look facts in the face and distinguish
the real from the unreal, urged In
season and out of season to weaki
our fleet, and fatally to reduce even
that small margin of Insurance on
which not u low paltry millions but
our whole life and nationhood depend. Let us also throughout th<
Empire mark and learn the lessons
that this war will teach us. While
every part of the Empire is equally
and vitally concerned In the command- of the sea, yet the very
breath of the Empire's flee! is. unity,
One Fleet Essential.
"If the Grand Fleet itse'f is defeated small, weak and distant
squadrons must either uselessly keep
their harbors or be sent lo the bottom. The shores and commerce of
the dominions as well as of the
British Islands will then be open to
the attack of the victorious enemy.
The whole Empire is, therefore,
equally concerned in tlie navy's
strength; and it is vital to every
part that in this and in every war
there shall be present on the day of
decision, and at the decisive point,
an irresistible nnd  united fleet."

THE  WAR  MAY  HAVE   THE   EFFECT OF AWAKENING HER
TO POSITION.
Tbe   Monopoly     That     Has    Hitherto
Existed in This Metal May
De Broken.
With Great Britain at, war witli
Germany and having in mind the
importance of securing regular supplies of copper, the situation at the
present time is full of Interest. Owing to the steps taken by the authorities in dealing with copper cargoes
which it is believed may be intended for the enemy the situation created by the war has, it is hoped, been
handled in such a way as to protect
our Interests. Something more than
this, however, is necessary. Greal
Britain must, take full advantage ot
the trade paralysis of Germany to
secure that position in Ihe copper
industry which her great interests
demand, but which up to the present
time she has utterly failed to secure, says a writer in the Montreal
Mall.
The scarcity of farm labor in
North and West Yorkshire, says ;i
London despatch, is now most serious and the education authorities
are being petitioned to free tbe lads
from school in order to assist the
farmers. Members of the Govsrn-
ment are getting anxious over the
rising prices of foodstuff, partly due
to the shortage of labor at the
docks. Belgian refugees would be
glad, it is said, to earn money both
at. the docks and on the farms, but
the trades unions would be instantly up in arms against any such proposal. The Government would almost
certainly decline to support such a
method of getting over the present
difficulty.
A suggestion with regard to the
wheat shortage here is made that
the Canadian Government should
prohibit the exportation of wheat to
any country except Great Britain or
the Allies, .and that the whole of
Canada's surplus should be purchased at, a fixed price, shipped here and
sold again on conditions that an
agreed price should he charged the
consumer.

is well known that Australia has also
large deposits of such clays, and, indeed, tests have been carried out to
show that these clays are superioi

of the manufacturing copper industry.
What is necessary is to offer encouragement to the copper refining

of the chain of processes which produces commercial copper. We must

At the prestnt time the copper
trade of the world is largely in the
hands of a syndicate in which German and American influence is paramount. The copper refining industry
is quite distinct from the copper
selling industry, but Germany lias
great, advantages in this field owing
to the control it has over the raw
copper market. We have Important
copper refineries in the British Dominions; one of the largest in the
world outside of the United States
is In Australia, but it has been a
settled policy of the big German
and American interests to obtain n
controlling interest in these refineries and whenever possible to close
them down, and thus strengthen the
monopoly in the copper trade which north
our chief Industrial rivals have
through long years been trying to
create.
It is now felt, that, the present offers an opportunity which will probably not recur |f breaking down the
copper monopoly. The strangle hold
we have taken on Gorman trade, no
less than the course of the war, has
left the industrial leaders in Germany no chance of pursuing their
traditipnal policy.
It is perfectly certain during the
Industrial paralysis In Germany the
strongest efforts will be made by
the United Slates to strengthen the
hold they already possess on the
copper trade. It is also the opportunity of Great Britain to step In and
seize the position hitherto held by
Germany. What precise step:; should
be taken and what: part in the none
mcnt can bo played by legislation
are mutters for consideration, but
all those acquainted with the position are emphatic thai something
should bo done to secure a greater
share of this trade for ourselves.
Germany is commonly believed to
hold an'advantage through the existence within the empire of large deposits of the clays suitable for lire
bricks, which will withstand temperatures up to 2,iioii deir. C . such as
are  rieci foi   I be  turn ices   em-1 }:
of the Mother Country. It can be
achieved and it ought to be done
We must cease to be dependent upon
foreign enterprise for the bulk supplies of a material which is vital tc
our industrial  future.

From Sitka comes a truly interesting tale of the deep. More than
sixty years ago when Alaska was under Russian dominance and Sitka
was the traliic headquarters of the
Russian companies dealing in furs
and other valuable products, the Russian gunboat Neva struck a rock off
Cape Edgecombe, near the entrance
to Sitka harbor, and went to the
bottom. It was one of the early
wrecks in Alaska's waters, although
not by any means the first, Bering's
ship having been wrecked in its first
attempt to explore the country, and
others having occurred between
then and the time when the Neva
went  down.
Now comes C. F. Stagger, a deep
sea diver, who has made application
to the United States government for
a permit to salve the gold from the
ill-fated gunboat, which is supposed
to bo lying at the bottom of the sea
at  this  point.
Last summer, while Stagger was
at Sitka, engaged in salving the fishing schooner Montana, which caught
lire and wss beached on Baranof
island, lie was informed of the
wrecked Russian gunboat Neva, by
Rev. Father George Kostronietiiioff,
the resident Russo-Greek priest at
Sitka, who, during the early summer,
visited Cape Edgecombe, and while
in that, vicinity in a small boat,
sighted tbe sunken cratt resting on
the bottom at a depth between ten
and twelve fathoms.
According to the statement made
by Father Kostrometinoff, more
than sixty years ago, when Alaska
was under Russian rule, the Russian
gunboat Neva was sent to Sitka with
nearly a quarter of a million dollars
in gold, to pay the Russian' officers,
soldiers and bluejackets stationed a"t
that place. When she was nearing
the entrance to the harbor a dense'
fog settled down and the Neva lost
her course, striking a reef off Cape
Edgecombe. So rapidly did the vessel go down that, the crew barely
bad time to escape in the small hoats
and after several days succeeded in
reaching Sitka.
Unsuccessful efforts were made to
recover the gold, but in those days
facilities for such work were limited
and further efforts were abandoned.
The gold was carried on tbe main
deck of the vessel in a great iron
chest, which was the usual \vay of
transporting bullion in war vessels in
those days.

sloth and sensuality. Nous sommes

take from you at the first opportunity the empire which is ours by
right."
It. was likely, Earl Grey remarked
that that idea of the British nation
bad undergone some change. It rested with us to raise up a new nation
and a new Belgium—(cheers) —
and a new world on principles and
ideals which would bring ever-increasing prosperity and nobility to
the peoples of the world.

Before leaving for the south for a
short time I purpose giving those
who wear spectacles or eyeglasses—
or those who may need them—a
specially close price on any and all
kinds of Glasses. For ten days only
—from January 11 lo January 21.
I leave on January 22, and it will be
an advantage to all those who wear
glasses or may require them, to see
me at once, at my offices, Suite I,
Exchange Block, or at McCutcheon's
Drug Store. This applies to all kinds
of frames and lenses and cases all
complete, the eyes carefully tested
and frames perfectly adjusted—and
guaranteed to be in every way accurate. If interested call and see
samples and get prices and arrange
appointments to have eyes carefully
examined. During these dates it will
pay you, if you are using glasses,
to get an extra pair, as the opportunity will not occur again. I fit all
kinds of Lenses—also Toric or wide
angle Lenses—and Kryptoks—giving you both distance and near
which have the advantage of being
invisible. Call early, so that in the
event of having lo order I may get
them here before I leave on January 22. If you need anything don't
miss this chance for 10 days only.
