Newspapermen Captured  Torreon/April 21.���������Five newspaper men, said to be Americans,  assigned to the Federal troops,  are reported to have been among  the prisoners captured at the  battle^of San Pedro De Las Co-  lonias.  Upon receiving this information, General Villa sent a newspaperman with his own forces  to investigate, with the instructions that the prisoners be treated with every consideration and  sent to this city.  S. S. Camosun arrived in port  on Sunday last with the usual  large consignment of freight!  Messrs. A. C. Christenson, J.  Forsyth and J. Johnson, returned  from a two weeks visit to Takush  Harbor, where Mr. Christensen  has considerable property. While  at that place they built a house  for Mr. Christenson.  Road superintendent R. Jennings, who this year has charge  of the road work throughout this  section of the Skeena district,  arrived on Sunday. Mr. Jennings left on Monday for a trip up  the Valley as far as Atnarko,'  b eing accompanied by Max  Heckman.  Mr. Jennings has adopted the  right course in making himself  personally acquainted with the  requirements of the valley, and  it is hoped that much good may  accrue from his trip up the yai-  ley-  '���������'..'        ^:- ���������' --is'..  Among the passengers by the  Camosun calling at this port;  were Messrs. B.W. Fleming^;  representing the Mooney Biscuit  Co., of Vancouver, J. S. Tate,  T; Stephens of J.

Knight, the well-known  representative of McLennan, Mc-  Feeley & Co., of Vancouver, left  on the last south-bound steamer  after spending a pleasant and  profitable week in town.  Ed. Oien of the Crossing left  last Sunday for Takush Harbor.  Special Gospel Services were  held at the Mackenzie School on  Sunday last, in the morning and  afternoon, the preacher on each  occasion being Capt. W. Stephenson. Mr. E. Whitehead assisted  at both services.  Capt. Stephenson is a forceful  and eloquent speaker, and made  a marked impression by his evident sincerity and earnestness.  The usual evening service was  conducted by"Rev. Hans Sageng,  pastor of the Augsborg Church,  Hagensborg, who gave a most  interesting address. Capt. Stephenson spoke briefly at the  close of the service.  Mr. Frank Johnson of Firvale,  has a fine new residence in course  Of construction.

Girl Will Attempt to  Swim Across Channel  Oakland, April 23.-To defend  the title of the champion swimmer of t\]e world, Miss Hazel  Bess Laugenour, who was the  first woman to swim across the  Golden Gate, will swim across  the English Channel. She will  leave America, June 15, and soon  after her arrival in England she  will attempt the swimming feat.  Theyouthiul swimmervi.s eagerly awaiting the test to swim the  Channel, which is twenty-three  miles in width. Captain Webb  and Mr. Burgess, were the only  men who ever succeeded in accomplishing this task.  The fisheries protection cruiser  Falcon arrived in port on Monday,  having on board Mr. and Mrs. J.  T. Williams.  Mr. Williams, inspector of fisheries,- is on his way north, visiting the various ports en route to  confer with his overseers. Mr.  and ;Mrs. Williams enjoyed a  visit to Hagensborg while in port.  Rev. T. C. Colwell has returned  from his periodical visit to Fir-  vale and the Crossing and wall  conduct services as usual on Sunday next.   School Teams Meet in Football and  Baseball.  On Friday last, teams representing the Lower Bella Coola  and the Mackenzie Schools met  to decide who should rule the  roost as local champions in both  football and baseball.  The games were played on the  Mackenzie school ground before  a goodly muster of interested  townsfolk.  Commencing with football the  town boys completely outplayed  their less experienced opponents  and won handsomely. At baseball, however, the honors fell to  the Lower Bella Coola team, who  played a very clever game  throughout, thoroughly deserving the victory. The garnes  were stubbornly contested,)' the  boys showing a fine sportsmanlike spirit throughout.  The Mackenzie boys are now  desirous of visiting Hagensborg  to decide who shall be entitled  to be called the Valley champions.  Miss Katey Draney and Miss  Martin, came in on the "Bertha  D." Miss Martin is at present  the guest of Mrs. Clayton. Miss  Draney proceeded to Kimsquit  -on^Tuesday.      '        V      :-  We learn from a local subscriber that Dr. W. J. Quinlan, the  well-known dentist of Prince  Rupert, has decided to open an  office in this town, where he purposes making his headquarters.  This news is especially welcome as Dr. Quinlan by his frequent visits has gained great  popularity in the valley.  Things are looking prosperous  in the northern part of British  Columbia.  We learn that a Toronto syndicate has acquired 5000 acres of  land on Dundas Island with the  object of going into farming and  cattle raising on a large scale.  One of our subscribers informs  us that many homesteaders are  locating in the Nass River Valley. Much land has been taken  up on Banks Island and there is  every prospect of a large influx  of settlers to the fertile lands of  northern B. C. during the coming  summer.      The Gran by Smelter Co. are  employing 540 men, and working  at high pressure.  Tom Englebretson, a well-  known rancher from Towdestan  Lake, arrived in town on Tuesday, bringing down twenty-two  head of horses. He reports that  last winter was the mildest and  best, from a ranching standpoint,  yet experienced by the oldest  settler in that country. Cattle  in the Towdestan country were  only fed for the short period of  two months, being allowed to  rustle their food the remainder  of the winter, which they did  quite comfortably, coming out in  the spring quite fat and in excellent condition.  Mr. Englebretson is engaged  in raising horses besides cattle,  and has already a large number  of good general purposes horses  of about 1200 lbs. Speaking of  his journey down here, he says  the feed in the Upper Country  is good, and the trail in fair condition, with the exception of two  bridges crossing the Hotnarko  River, which are in a very dangerous condition and should be  repaired or renewed without delay, before the heavy travel commences, or there is grave danger  of a serious accident.  This hardy pioneer rancher is  one of the many who has long  been living in hopes of the,Bella  Coola wagon road being continued into the Interior, in order  to enable them to drive their  cattle,to this place for shipment  to the\iorthern markets.  Mr. Engletbretson will leave  here early next week with a  pack-train load of supplies for  the Kleena Kleene telegraph  station. Accompanying him on  his pack-train is Tulin, a well-  known Tatla Lake Indian.  Large quantities of potatoes  are being shipped from this port.  The warehouse at the wharf is  full and there remains many tons  to be brought down the valley.  Buildings in course of construction include a large addition to  Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland's residence. The work is in the hands  of F. G. Hagan. The lumber is  on the ground ready for the  commencement of  a  new resi-  150 REWARD  Will be paid by the undersigned for the recovery of the  body of Colonel R. F. Lindsell.  G. LINDSELL,  Hagensborg, B. C.  la Coola Development League  took place on Saturday evening  at the Mackenzie School, president W. H. Gibson in the chair.  A good attendance of members  listened with interest to the report of the work of the League  during the past year, as submitted by the secretary-treasurer.  The financial standing of the  League is excellent, and the new  year is begun with a handsome  balance in the bank.  In order that the executive  board should be better enabled  to keep informed as to the requirements of the various parts  of the valley, it has been decided  to invite the members in each of  the districts, Crossing, Hagensborg and Atnarko, to appoint a  local secretary whose duty it  shall be to communicate with the  chief secretary on all matters  concerning his particular district, which will then be brought  before the executive board.  The election of officers for the  ensuing year resulted as follows:  President, W. H. Gibson; vice-  president, W. Sutherland; secretary, H. L. Harris; treasurer, O.  T. Landry. Executive board���������  J. R. Morrison, I. Fougner, A.  Gothard, C. F. Grant, V. Clayton, A. C. Christenson, C. Brown.  P. J. Kenyon and L. J. Calnan.  Towards the close of the meeting a hearty vote of thanks was  tendered to the Bella Coola Min  strel Troupe for their kind assistance in assisting the finances  of the League.  Several new members were enrolled and altogether the prospects are bright for a very successful year.  New Executive Board Meets.  The newly elected executive  board met at Mr. A. C. Christen-,  sen's home on Monday evening,  in order to discuss with the iocal  Athletic Association the program  of sports for the'Empire Day  celebration, which is billed to  take place on May 22nd and 23rd.  A capital program was drawn  up, which includes many novel  and amusing forms of entertainment, and committees were appointed to attend to the matters  of finance, advertising, etc.  It is the aim of the League to  make this year's celebration an  even greater success than last  year, and the executive board  request the hearty co-operaticn  of all members and friends.  Further notice of the celebration will appear in these columns  in due course.  ' Basketball Game.  On Thursday evening the last  and most evenly contested basketball game of the season between the Hagensborg and Bella  Coola teams was witnessed by a  large'number of fans, resulting  in a victory for the former by a  handsome margin of, points���������28  to 17.  The game throughout was  marked by very fast playing but  the Bella Coola team were un able  to hold down their more stalwart  opponents. The spectacular play  by R. Saugstad and O. Gorden,  of the Hagensborg side, were  heartily cheered by the onlookers.  General Meeting of the  B. C. A. A.  A general meeting of the B.  C. A. A. convened at the Hagensborg hall after the basket ball  Annual Meeting of Development  League  The annual meetingof the Bel- ������ame> president H. M. Rolston  presiding.  The ordinary business of the  association was transacted. The  secretary presented the financial  standing. A vote of thanks was  tendered Gunner Saugstad for  framing the benches free of  charge and the secretary was instructed to tender the thanks of  the association to Mr. B. Brynildsen for a recent subscription.  The following committee was  appointed to confer with a committee of the Development  League to arrange a program of  sports for the coming 24th of  May celebration, H. M. Rolston,  T. Jacobsen and H. Burt.  The following gentlemen were  voted into membership, Messis.  H. Kivett. O. T. Landry and  Alger Brynildsen. The secretary received $13 into the treasury.  It is suggested that this meeting be one of the first of a succession of meetings to be held  regularly at the beginning of  each quarter.

Why Don't They?  -Loud ahd long have been'the  speeches by members of the government at Ottawa in the recent  _  debate upon the National Transcontinental railway.    The gov-  !    ernment press   also   has   been  "busy, echoing the partisan report  of Messrs; Gutelius and Lynch-  *     Staunton.    The Federal  Press  Bulletin   (a weekly   review  of  Canadian-political affairs,) tens  ���������   of thousands of .copies of which  '. have been" sent'by Conservative  members of parliament to every  tute   prosecutions   against   the  guilty persons. -    ���������  Every contractor on the Transcontinental    Railway    was   required to place with the Dominion authorities a heavy deposit to  be forfeited if his contract was  not properly carried  out.    Mr.  Gordon Grant, chief engineer of  the  project   for   the   last   five  years, teistifies on oath that the  total  security so deposited has  been more than sufficient to meet  all claims which might be made  upon it.   This huge sum of money  is still in the, hands  of Major  Leonard,   the. Transcontinental  Commissioner.    It is still under  the control of the Dominion government-.  Now then, if the charges made  by thegovernment.speakers and  the government press are true,  how is it that Ifclr. Borden has  not hastened to reimburse the  public treasury .out of this huge  amount'of money held as security.  ! The government has thispower  in its hands, why does it not use  it ? Failure to take ad vantage of  this situation, is absolute proof  of the falsity of the .Conservative charges of over-payments  and over-classifications  only a matter of conjecture. ^  Mr Manson has been tramping  a certain part of his district looking into the requirements of the  various neighborhoods. Incidentally while apologising for the  smallness of'the district appropriation for this year, he has  followed his old time custom ot  promising   big  things   for  the  future. .  Bella Coola has requirements  also.   There are several matters  of importance which have been  submitted to Mr. Manson from  authoritative sources.   Why has  he not been here to look into  them ?  Mr. Manson, many weeks  ago, said he would be'here shortly when these* various matters  would be examined on the ground.  He has not arrived yet.    After  visiting the various places in the  northern part of his constituency  in order to look into the, local requirements, he meets the road-  bosses and proceeds to share out  the.district appropriation, without consulting the people of Bella Coola.  Why did he not call here and  House of Lords with the title  Marquis of Kitsilano, in commemoration of the purchase ot  the Indian reserve in which two  energetic intermediaries pulled  down $80,000 of provincial  money?���������Victoria Times.  It was generally thought that  with the appointment of Mr. W.  McCrae as official timber scaler  for a district which includes the  waters adjacent to this place,  and-also to define and report on  the logging limits, that much oi  the difficulty heretofore experienced by the hand-logger' in securing his- license in reasonable  time would be removed.  This hope, however, has not  been realized: This is not the  fault of Mr. McCrae, whom we  only know as a hard-working and  painstaking official. The fault  lies', with someone higher in  official circles.  Is there no way by which the  loggers can get their licensesin  reasonable time?

The reason is not hard to find.  Wm. Manson knows that while  he has' bought the votes of Bella  Coola Valley before, he can do so  no longer.' . No, not forany price.

But not so, even the  Borden government knows he is  both competent-and honest and  has   accordingly" kept   him   in  shout of graft on the Transcontinental Railway.  What Is Our Share?  We learn that a conference of  road superintendents' has been  held at Prince Rupert for the  purpose.of discussing with Wm.  Manson, M.P.P., the allotment,  of the $216,000 appropriation for  this year's work on roads, trails  and bridges throughout the Skee-  na district.  According to the Portland  I Canal Miner, Mr. Manson spent  a week along the line of the G.  T. P.-railway, looking into the  requirements'-of that portion of  his constituency:  What share Bella Coola is to  have of this $216,000 is as yet  memoeis ui paiin.."-���������- -   IlcU5   a^vi^^o'*    ---������������������.  constituency in .the Dominion,  office, and by so doing gives the  '   makes usepf the!pllowing'terms: j-e direct to- its wn friends who  .' ��������� > 'Greatest graft in the history of  : politics -in .America.",   "More  than forty million dollars needlessly expended on western .sections."   This news must be soothing to the British investor:  Either these statements contained in the Federal Press Bul-  ' letin are absolutely true, or else  they are merely manufactured lies  spread broadcast with the intention of prejudicing the electorate  ,, against the Liberal party. I  If they are true, why does not  the Borden government take immediate steps to bring some of  the 'grafters' to trial and subsequent- punishment.'    Until the  government do this, they stand  self-accused and condemned before the whole country.    Conservative members of parliament  have not hesitated to circulate  false reports, which must contribute more than  anything else  towards postponing the era of  ' progress and development which  could reasonably be expected to  follow the period   of   financial  stress from which the country is  only now recovering.  This they have done only-because they knew right well that  their government is discredited,  and so they resorted to this extreme measure in an attempt to  bolster Up a lost cause.  Conservative   members   say,  "The country was robbed.  Contractors were- paid more than  they earned..   Over classification  was frequent, and the contractors profited improperly at public  expense iii consequence."  These members have not offered  and cannot offer   credible evidence in support of these charges.  Yet, if the charges are true,  how easy to restore these 'stolen'  fund3,   without   even   the   unpleasantness of having to insti-  port from this place  It is Wm. Manson for the north  after this. Yet, if an election  should be prematurely sprung,  before a measure of redistribution could be brought into effect,  what a rude shock it would be to  him. This is riot improbable.  ' However, Bella Coola will get  some money for roads and trails,  but certainly not more than Mr.  Manson can help  got what they were after by  taking this course. Why not the  hand-loggers? /  If the local Conservative club  will  guarantee  to   have   these  hand-logger's    licenses    issued  promptly on the spot, the publishers of the Courier will  be  more than pleased to advance  the sum of .$1 per head, as a membership fee, to enable these loggers to become enrolled as members' of   the Ignoble   Order of  Bowserites, and so perhaps obtain pull enough to get what is  their natural rights.

We do not always take them  even with sufficient gravity; certainly never with the amount of  seriousness with which they are  delivered.

The receiver of graft, who sells  the confidence of the people  placed in him to do their work  in their interest, not in his own,  should, of course, be banished  from public life to the penitentiary, but the dispenser of graft  should be made lead the way.
