Thrilling Escape
From German Empire
W. T. Hillier, Formerly Operator at
Dead Tree Point, Relates His
Experiences.
Following exciting experiences in
escaping from Germany after the receipt of Great Britain's ultimatum to
Berlin, Mr. W. T. Hillier, formerly in
charge of the Dominion wireless station
at Dead Tree Point, returned to Victoria a few days ago. Probably the
most thrilling episode of which he was
an eyewitness, says the Victoria Daily
Colonist, was the shooting, without
trial, of forty Russians by German
soldiers.
Mr. Hillier was undergoing treatment
at Wiesbaden and intended spending
three more weeks there, when, following
the declaration of war against Russia
and the wanton invasion of Luxemburg
territory by German troops, Britain
sent her ultimatum to Berlin. " Immediately," Mr. Hillier says, "the
passions of the populace became inflamed against England. An unholy joy
seemed to pervade the people of Wiesbaden. On all sides I heard expressions
of opinion that Germany feared no one.
The more foes she made the better
the people seemed'pleased. I saw placards posted up in the town with the
legend ' The Kaiser will be Emperor of
Europe and America.' I saw forty
Russians, many of them peaceable visitors to Wiesbaden, on the outbreak of
war arrested as spies, led out into the
public square and shot. Their shrift
was of the shortest. They were given
no trial. Soon I was warned to leave
the town as were all Britishers and
Americans. When I went to take my
train I saw two ladies on the platform
assaulted by the populace, their clothes
torn off by an infuriated mob, who believed they were Russian spies in disguise. The ladies, I think, were two
Americans, but I was not sure of their
nationality. On the day I left I saw
numbers of wounded brought into Wiesbaden from Luxemburg. At Cologne,
where I and other refugees were taken
from Wiesbaden, we were lined up on
the platform by troops. Some tried to
escape and I was one of those successful. I made my way to the Cologne
bridge, with what object in view I
hardly know, but I found it guarded by
soldiers and had to retrace my steps.
Coming back by way of the railway
track I found a baggage car open and
hid there among the trunks. Shortly
afterwards the train to which this car
was attached left the station and I got
as far as Dusseldorf, where some of the
trunks were removed and I was found
by the guard. I offered him 150 marks
in paper money if he would allow me to
proceed, but he refused. He took the
money from me and searched me for
whatever else I had, taking the 240
marks in gold, which was all the money
I possessed. He then allowed me to
proceed and I found my way to a village
in Holland a few miles beyond the frontier. From there I went to Flushing and
took a boat to England.
"In passing through Cologne I saw
that the famous cathedral there was
displaying searchlights for the purpose
of locating the enemy's aerial craft,
while cannons for firing on these had
been mounted on the cathedral. I saw
many Zeppelins, and while I am not
versed in aviation I doubt the efficiency
of these airships in war. Whenever I
saw them they were flying low and presented an easy mark to hostile guns.
People outside Germany can hardly
realize the lengths to which her mobilization has gone. Every male person
from the age of 17 to 55 or 60 has been
summoned to the colors. The street
cars are being run by women and girls.
As far as I could gather the entire
German campaign against France is being directed from Mainz.
"On the way from Flushing to England I was privileged to see a great
British fleet, comprising battle cruisers,
.cruisers and torpedo boats, on its way
to the North Sea. In England I found
everything very quiet. The people
showed a deadly earnestness in their
war preparations. Of course the war
has greatly interrupted business and 90.
per cent, of the large firms are only
working hslf time. There were large
numbers of Canadians in London and
elsewhere in Great Britain and the last
of these will not be able to return to
the Dominion until some time in October,
so great is the rush across the Atlantic.
No emigrants are allowed to leave the
country."
Mr. Hillier's experiences are particularly unfortunate because at the time
he waa forced to leave he was within
three weeks of completing a special
treatment for the eyes, which he anticipated would have completely cured
the affection from which he was suffering. He will be transferred to the Ikeda
Bay station shortly.

Thanksgiving Day.
A dispatch from Ottawa states that
Thursday, 8th October, will be proclaimed as Thanksgiving Day in the
next issue of the Canada Gazette. The
Government has decided to revert this
year to the old custom of having Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, instead of
Monday, as has been the case in the
last five or six years.

Well Informed Captain
Reported With Leipzig.
There has been a report in circulation
for some days to the effect that a
mariner who for several years was in
command of a steamer that called at
Queen Charlotte Islands points has
joined the German cruiser Leipzig and
is informing the commander of the
enemy's craft of the nature of British
Columbia's coast line. The captain arrived on this coast from Germany in
the early days of the sealing industry
and /or some years was engaged in the
cousivvise steamship busine s.
The report current states that the
skipper joined the Leipzig while she
was at San Francisco. If this rumor is
coivect the commander of the German
war vessel has at his disposal some very
useful information. The captain reported to be on board the Leipzig knows
th'sport very well, and is familiar with
all points about the coast hereabouts.
The skipper in question returned recently from the Behring Sea.

Local Men At Valcartier.
Indian Agent Thomas Deasy received
the following letter from Lewen Tugwell, one of our pre-emptors, who left
his location to serve King and country:
" B Company, 11th Royal Trish Fusilers,
Valcartier, Quebec, Aug. 30,1914.
Dear Mr. Deasy:—As you will see
from the above, I managed to get with
the first contingent. I was only Justin
time and had to go off without saying
good-bye to mother. Capt. Jenkins is
acting Lieutenant of the company I am
in. The men all like him very much.
At present the drill just consists of
learning to march and handle a rifle and
is not very interesting. Everyone expects we shall get orders to go to Alder-
shot in a few days; but, of course, no
orders are published.
Lewen Tugwell."

Prince Albert Pulled Off Rocks.
The S S. Prince Albert was successfully floated off the Butterworth Rocks

Massett, B.C., Saturday, Oct. 3,1914
The first ship from San Francisco by
way of the Panama Canal arrived in
New York the other day, saving a month
by taking the new route. This decrease
in the time of water shipments from the
West to the East coast of the United
States means much to domestic commerce, and undoubtedly the trade will
grow rapidly as its benefits become apparent. The great canal is in working
order, and the fact that it is open for
business a year ahead of time speaks
volumes for American enterprise and
for the skill and unswerving diligence
of the American army engineers. The
Panama Canal is the achievement of the
century, and its growing use would be
watched with keener interest if the
great European war did not demand
first place in popular attention.
The Prince Rupert Board of Trad,e
must not run away with the idea that
the whole business of this Northern
country depends on furnishing goods to
the people along the railway line. They
forget that a large number of islands
are situate in the immediate neighborhood of that city, and the residents require communication, direct, and at intervals that mean no delay. We wonder
if the peopl of Seattle or Vancouver
would overlook the islands in the neighborhood of those cities, as we are
treated? A fortnighly steamer means
to the islands that it takes no longer to
obtain goods from Vancouver than it
does from Prince Rupert. Of course a
large number of the Prince i Rupert
firms are but branches of Vancouver
houses; but there are independent business men, who should not lose sight of
the coming trade of the Queen Charlotte Islands. With only eighty-five
miles intervening, it is not to the credit
of Prince Rupert that a fortnightly
steamer is considered sufficient for the
trade that the large city could do with
these islands.
What is wanted on these islands are
men who have a small amount of capital
and who would engage in the salting and
smoking of fish all the year round.
There is also a large business to be
opened up in shell fish. Off Langara
Island, the herring are found in large
numbers and halibut can be caught the
year round. The different species of
salmon swarm in our waters—the
Indians asserting that the last run of
"pink" salmon was phenomenal The
Indians are adepts at smoking salmon,
and a good business could be done with
them in this line.

To Make North Coast
Safer For Steamers.
Col. W. P. Anderson, chief engineer
of the Marine Department, is on a visit
of inspection to the Northern coast in
connection with the aids to navigation
and to investigate the reportsof further
needs to make the northern course still
more safe for shipping. The Alaska
coast is not nearly so well provided with
navigation safeguards American skippers feel relief as soon as they get out
of Alaska waters into the waters of
Northern British Columbia. The Langara Island lighthouse will be visited by
the inspector as well as Bonila Point,
off the northwest shore of Banks island,
where a light of the same power as the
one on Langara is to be established
next summer.

Canada's Answer.
Round the world Mother gives forth a
warning—
A despot our homes would destroy ;
E'er   the   bright   early  dawn  of   the
morning,
Canada answers:   "Aye ready,  your
boy."
On his collar a maple leaf glistens,
Emblem of faith in the land of his birth;
All the world wonders and listens :
*' Bri tain's honour, or six feet of earth.''
Yield   not,   though   vast  hordes   are
pressing,
Our brightest, our bravest, our true—
From wheat fields and  mountains are
rushing,
At the call to the red, white and blue.
Forgotten is creed, race and color—
White, black, red stream over the sea ;
Shoulder to shoulder for honor—
For God'and for country—for thee.
Land of the shamrock and heather,
Home of the lily and rose ;
Where our forefathers oft fought together,
Help comes from where the green maple
leaf grows.
Rule, aye rule, Britannia,
Britannia rules the waves,
Britons never, never, never,
Shall be slaves.

Synopsis of Coal Mining Regulations
COAL mining rights of the Dominion
in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and in a portion of the
Province of British Columbia, may be
leased for a term of twenty-one years
at an annual rental of $1 an acre. Not
more than 2,560 acres will be leased to
one applicant.
Application for a lease must be made
by the applicant in person to the Agent
or Sub-Agent of the district in which the
rights applied for are situated.
In surveyed territory the land must

Each application must be accompanied
by a fee of $5 which will be refunded if
the rights applied for are not available,
but not otherwise. ' A royalty shall be
paid on the merchantable output of the
mine at the rate of five cents per ton.
The person operating the mine shall
furnish the Agent with sworn returns
accounting for the full quantity of
merchantable coal mined and pay the
royalty thereon. If the coal mining
rights are not being operated, such returns should be furnished at least once
a year.
The lease will include the coal mining
rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available
surface rights may be considered necessary for the working of the mine atthe
rate of $10.00 an acre.
For full information application should
be made to the Secretary of the Department of the Interior, Ottawa, or to any
Agent or Sub-Agent of Dominion Lands.

WhaVs the matter with you
Pessimists?
If you knew as much as I do about the future of Delkatlah Bay
you would be chasing me up with payments on your lots.
The farming may be a little slow,in developing, and the coal seams
hard to trace in paying quantities, but Delkatlah is on the eve of development as a Winter Tourist Resort which will place it only second to Prince
Rupert in Northern British Columbia.
I am not a prophet, for such prophecy only requires the application of
ordinary common sense.
Buying lots in Delkatlah is like sowing seed—the money disappears like
the seed in the ground only to spring up and yield ten fold.
Canada needs no summer resort, it has all the summer climate it wants,
but from Nova Scotia to the Rockies it needs a winter climate, and that's
what we have. The Spring is the time to sow seed. Sow your wages in a
lot at the rate of $5.00 a month and have a home in town.
Immediately back of Delkatlah pre-emptions are being taken up at the
rate of ten a week.   That will soon increase values.
