Help Reaches General  Velasco From Saltillo  Washington, April 9.���������Federal  reinforcements from Saltillo have  reached Torreon, according to a  telegram to the Mexican embassy  here from the Mexican consul at  El Paso. The message adds that  there seemed to be little danger  of the city being taken by Villa.  The number of federal troops  was not given.  Still Fignting at Torreon.  Juarez, April 9.���������Out of the  maze of reports and counter reports' concerning the activity of  General Francisco Villa at Torreon, the assumption was drawn  that fighting continues. This  was based on a telegram from  Villa to General Carranza. Interest here also centered on the  reported movements of reinforcements for the federal troops of  General Velasco at Torren.  ^m  |#Joney In Letters  C l  '  ' (S^Swa, April 9.���������' 'We are go-  . ing������w  modify the  regulations  l.rieently passed prohibiting the  JFJJ  ' > transmission   of   coin   or   bank  ^notgs in unregistered letters, so  ER'  E-L-f  ,57J;aampeople will be able to send  iii.t--__-_.T_i      ^Yie    ordinary    mail  deputy-post-  , 'anfgShts not exceeding a dollar,1  * safdWDr.   Coulter,  .STOI  .master-general.  m   ^Naturalization Bill  Coxey to Lead Half a  Million Men to Capital  New York, April 9.���������Jacob S.  Coxey, leader of the "army"  which bore his name and marched  on Washington in 1894, established headquarters here. He  said he would spend several days  looking after plans for the mobilization of the New York wing  of an army of 500,000 men which  he intends to lead into the  national capital some time this  month. The main division of  the army, he said, would leave  Massilon, Ohio, on April 16 and  be joined outside Washington by  the eastern division. , .   ���������  Prince Rupert Booms  Population Now 6000 and Stated to  Be Growing Rapidly   '  Prince /Rupert, April 9. ��������� A  census.of the city is now being]  taken by the officials of the police  department. The population is  in the neighborhood of 6000  people, and in recent weeks has  been growing rapidly. Houses  are at a premium and the hotel  accommodation taxed to capacity.  Several apartment houses are  about to be erected and in Section Eight, twelve residences are  under construction. Averylive-  ly year of building activity is  assured. Weather conditions  are superb.  Indian Lands Commission  Federalism Proposed  For British Isles  Meets With Approval on Both Sides  in Britain  Victoria, April 9.���������A Montreal  lawyer, Mr. J. Carmichael, has  been appointed to the Indian  lands commission to fill the vacancy created by the resignation  of Hon. E. L. Wetmore, whose  position as chairman is to be filledJ  London, April 9 The proposal  of Sir Edward Grey to the House  of Commons of a federal system  of government for the British  Isles, as a solution of the difficulty, which he put forward in  a conciliatory speech, has been  received on both sides of the  House with great sympathy, and  it "is believed it will lead to a renewal of the negotiations between the two front benches for  the arrangement of a suitable  compromise. The large body of  opinion, both inside and outside  parliament, supports a settlement on the federal basis and a  meeting of about fifty members  of, the House, representing the  two parties, was held to discuss  such a settlement.  by the promotion of Mr. N.

Naval Reciprocity  London, April 9. ���������A Melbourne  \ dispatch to  the "Chronicle says  -* .that the Borden Government has  been   approached   by  Australia  with a suggestion of naval reciprocity.  Strong Opposition to  Projected All Red Line    i   Ottawa, April 9.���������Strong opposition to another transcontinental railway scheme has been  voiced in the railway committee  when the' bill to incorporate the  All Red Line Railway Company  came before it. The projected  line is from Cape St. Charles,  Labrador, to the Pacific Coast,  north of the N. T. R. line. The  incorporators are, Edward Holland of Prescott, F. H. Palmer  and W. F. Stafford of Buffalo,  and G.. F. Hope and G. A. White  of Toronto.  Order Extended Prohibiting  Entrance of Artisans  Ottawa, April 9.���������At a meeting of the Cabinet Council the  order-in-council prohibiting the  landing of all laborers on the  Pacific Coast for a period of six  months in view of the congestion  in the labor market in British  Columbia, and also with a view  to stopping Oriental immigration,  was renewed for another six  months. There is no change in  the term of the order.  The S. S. Camosun made her  usual weekly call at this port on  Sunday, bringing a large number  of passengers. y  Mr. G. K. Burnett has returned  to personally supervise survey  work in this neighborhood.  Mr. T. Murray, late representative of the well known firm of  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co., of  Vancouver, is in town. Mr.  Murray is now a free lance. As  a manufacturers agent he can  supply anything from a needle to  an anchor. Having already acquired the habit of making good,  there is little doub.t as to his success in his new enterprise.  E. Gordon and C. Skjepstad  have returned after a short visit  to the State of Washington,  where they have arranged to  take up land. They have no intention of deserting Bella Coola  valley, being too well aware of  the prospects of early development.  F. Sagar arrived in town by  the last steamer. Mr. Sagar is  engaged in surveying the extensive holdings of Messrs. Field  Brothers, the well known timber  firm of Victoria.  Martin Nygaard arrived by the  Camosun last Sunday from the  Manitou cannery, Kimsquit, for  a visit of a couple of weeks.  Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Macfarlane  Sportsman's Mysterious  Disappearance  A sad calamity has casta gloom  over Bella Coola Valley. On  Wednesday night word reached  the town that Colonel Robert F.  Lindsell, C. B., had disappeared,  and in spite of a thorough search  of the vicinity by the neighboring settlers no trace of him could  be found.  It appears that Col. Lindsell,  who was an ardent sportsman,  had taken his rod and line and  gone to the river to. enjoy the  excellent trout fishing which  these waters provide. When he  failed to appear at the home of  Mr. S. Le C. Grant, where he  was making his temporary residence, at his accustomed time,  some anxiety arose as to his  whereabouts, which rapidly increased when it was found that  he was not to be located at the  homes of any of the neighbors,  where it was hoped he had gone  to pay a friendly visit.  On word of his disappearance  reaching town, constableBrough-  ton left for the spot and continued the search but without avail.  Returning to town, he engaged  Indians with canoes and all day  Thursday the search was continued.  It is stated that the Colonel  can be traced to the river, where  it seems likely that he waded out  to a large flat rock on which he  took  up his position in order to  Lindsell, and by his genial manner had won many friends who  will deeply regret his sad death.  Much sympathy is being expressed with Mr. and Mrs. G.  Lindsell and son in their sad  bereavement.  W. H. Mackay and Karl W.  Brink, of Hagensborg, visited  town on Thursday last.  Minstrels Visit Hagensborg  On Tuesday last the Bella Coola Minstrels visited Hagensborg  and repeated the performance of  the previous week.  The various solos and choruses  were excellently rendered, to the  obvious enjoyment of a large  audience, who were most appreciative, every item being applauded and encored.  The Troupe on this occasion  was augmented by the inclusion  of Mr. G. S. Lindsell, whose  banjo turns rounded out the program to great effect.  The choruses were well received, the "coons" giving  tongue like hounds on a hot scent.  Where every member of the  company did so well it would be  invidious to mention individual  turns, but particular thanks are  due to Mr. E. R. A. Russell, the  m u s ic'a 1 director, to whose  patience and untiring efforts  most of the success is due.  The proceeds of this latter  concert are divided between two  very worthy objects, the clearing  of the hospital grounds and the  building of a public hall.  Mr. Chas. Draney called here  on Monday last en route to  Kimsquit. He took with him  Gus. Pearson, who is to be net-  man at the Kimsquit cannery  during the coming season.  The work of clearing and leveling the hospital grounds is pro-  ceding apace, and the grounds  already present a very altered  appearance.  The men responsible for the  work of protecting the town  from a re-occurrence of the flood  which caused so much damage  last fall, are to be congratulated  on the substantial nature of their  work. Anything but cribbing of  the most substantial nature would  have been a mere waste of money,  and it is gratifying to know that  this work is in capable hands.  Arrangements for annual Em-,  pire Day celebrations have already been commenced by the  Development League, and there  is every prospect that the proceedings this year will outclass  anything of the nature in the  history of the valley.  The celebration will take place  on Saturday, May 23rd, and every  effort will be made to attract a  large number of people from the  neighboring ports.  The Union Steamship Company  have been requested to have  their steamer arrive in the early  morning of that day and remain  until late at night, which' will  give passengers an opportunity  of spending a full day in the valley. ���������.. -    -        ���������������������������������������������"'���������'  The annual meeting of the Development League will be held  at the Mackenzie School on Saturday, 18th inst., at 7:30 o'clock.  A full attendance is requested:  Messrs. W. and H. Sutherland  and L. Calnan left on Wednesday last for Bachelor Bay.  Mr. and Mrs. W. Sutherland  are having a large addition built  to their charming bungalow  "The Shack." The work''is in  the hands of F. G. Hagan.  .pursue his favorite sport.    It is  left for Victoria by the last south | assume_   that   he   either over-  bound steamer.  Messrs. A. C. Christenson, J.  Forsyth and J. Johnson left here  on Sunday for Takoosh harbor,  where Mr. Christenson has intentions of opening a branch of  his mercantile business.  Geo. Dagg left for the south  by Sunday's steamer af t^v spending several weeks in the town.  balanced and fell from this  rock, or that being tempted to  cross the river he was swept off  his feet by the rapidly running  stream and carried under one of  the numerous log-jams in this  part of the river.  Colonel Lindsell. who had for  some years retired from the  British army, had spent several  months visiting his son, Mr. G.  Mr. and Mrs. T. P. Saugstad  and daughter arrived from Kimsquit on Wednesday last, by the  power-launch Kimsquit.  S. S. Celtic called at this port  on Monday last with a large consignment of tin and gasoline.  Alf. Saugstad, late resident of  Hagensborg, who is first mate  of the Celtic, took the opportunity of visiting his relatives and  friends in the valley.  Rumor has it that the local  minstrel troupe were supplied  with shoe-blacking instead of the  regulation burnt-cork on the occasion of their recent performance at Hagensborg. At any-  rate some of the "coons" looked  suspiciously dark for several  days after.  The Clayton Bridge  The new Clayton bridge oyer  the Bella Coola River is being  rushed along, and under the  able supervision of R. O. N.  Ellison, the public will soon be  able to cross over to the Clayton  side of the river without running  the risk of taking an involuntary  bath from an upturned canoe. '  The big 154 foot span on the  north side of the river is now in  [place and solid on its piers, and  before the end of the month it is  hoped that the smaller 130 foot  span will also be placed and the  bridge practically completed.  On Sunday next a special  Easter service of song will be  held in the Indian mission church  at 2:30 p. m. All are cordially  invited.       Our old friend Alf. Blakemore  has the honor of securing the  first bear of the season.  To see is to secure with Alf.  Spotting his game on the wild  hillside by the aid of his trusty  telescope, he seized his rifle and  took to the trail, with the result  that two excellent yearling bear  pelts now grace his wigwam.  Mama bear was too wise for Alf  even, and lives to fight another  day.  STOP REWARD  Will be paid by the undersigned for the recovery of the  body of Colonel R. F. Lindsell.  G.

While the Courier has, on occasions, been sharp to criticise  the wasteful expenditure on public works throughout' the valley,  we are always prepared to give  credit where credit is due.  .

Foreman McGloskey who has  charge of the gang employed on  the crib-work  is a man of experience   as   his   work   shows.  With such men as these fn charge  of public works in the valley, we  can look with confidence to obtaining adequate value for.money  expended.  The bridge over the Bella Coola  River is another example of good  work by good men. We will  deal with this later at more  length. .   -  ',  Mr. Bowser, says as far as the  law is concerned British Columbia is' fairly bristling with constitutional problems: The 'Attorney-General would have been  nearer the truth if he had put it  another way.

The Victoria Times draws attention to what it describes as  the miraculous feat of a man  who staked an area of 40,000  acres of land on one, day and another 45,000 acres on the next  day, although the two areas were  seventy-five miles apart. Lucky  we are that this man was pressed.  If D. A. Thomas,  the Welsh  coal baron,  builds that railway  from the Naas to the'Groundhog  district without seeking a subsidy from the federal or provincial  governments statues in his honor  should be erected in every city,  town and hamlet in the Dominion,  and every child born from now  to the end  of   1914  should be  named after him.

As ������he  constellations rose in the sky the  Indian referred to his gourd and  found out the hour. By turning  the gourd around he could tell  the order in which the constellations might be expected to appear.  The hill people of Assam reckon  time and distance by the number  of quids of betel nuts chewed.  It will be remembered how, according to Washington Irving, the  Dutch Colonial Assembly was invariably  dismissed  at the last  puff of the third pipe of tobacco  of Governor Wouter Van Twiller.  A Montagnis Indian of Canada  will  set up a tall stick in the  snow when travelling ahead of  his  friends  who are to follow.  He marks with his foot the line  of shadow cast, and by the change  in the angle of the shadow the  oncoming party can tell, on ar-  iving at the spot, about how far  ahead the leader is.
