Lutz, superintendent of the Puget Sound &  Michigan Lumber Co., has reached this city from Powell River,  where Mr. Lutz is now in the  hospital making steps towards  recovery. It is stated that Mr.  Lutz had recently been suffering  ' from overwork and despondency,  consequent on the liquidation of  the Pudget Sound & Michigan  LumberCo.,andon Sunday after-  noorirshot himself with a 30-40  rifle, .which was in the house.  One of the bullets tore a wound  in his left side, and the other  punctured his left breast above  > the heart.  Mr. Lutz is one of the  best  '--known and most respected men  in'the Powell River district, and  has been connected with the  lumber business on the coast for  many years.  Mexican Newspapers  Admit Torreon's Fall  Mexico City, April 16.���������The  first admission that General Villa  and the rebel army have occupied Torreon is made by the  Mexican Herald.  The newspaper states that  General Aureliano Blanquet declares that General Jose Velasco  the federal commander, has not  evacuated the city "in the full  sense of the word." The minister of war says the federal commander has made a strategic  move which is expected to give  the best results on the arrival of  the federal columns now on their  way to Torreon.  According to General Blanquet,  a position has been established  by General Velasco at Cerro De  La Crux, from which place he  dominates Torreon with his artillery.  The newspapers printed in  Spanish do not make any mention of the capture of Torreon.  Moors Torture Aviators  Before Killing Them  Rabat, Morocco. April 16.���������  Captain Herve, a French military  aviator and a lieutenant he was  carryingas a passenger have been  hacked to death by insurgent  Moors, after they had escaped  uninjured from an aeroplane accident in the desert.  The officers ware engaged in a  reconnoitering flight near Denour  when their motor became disabled. The captain piloted the  machine in a gliding flight to  earth. Both alighted safely and  were endeavoring to repair the  defective motor when a band of  Moors surrounded them and after  torturing them cut them up with  swords and spears. The Moors  also destroyed the aeroplane.  From Chicago to Prince Rupert  PrinceRupert, April 16.���������With  the completion of the Grand  Trunk Pacific branch now under  construction from Regina to  Northgate, a port of entry on the  international boundary, it will be  possible for passengers to board  a train at Chicago and proceed  without interruption to Prince  Rupert, according to Mr. T. B.  Marston, a railway contractor,  both freight and passengers will  be shipped by this new route to  the Pacific.  "By the completion of their  branch   to   Northgate,"   Mr.  Marston says, "the Grand Trunk  Railway will be given entry to  St. Paul over the Great Northern  tracks and will proceed toChica-  go over the Chicago, Burlington  &"Quincy lines. By the aid of  the Burlington, the G. T. P. will  have a direct route from the Pacific to Chicago.  "I understand that no inconsiderable portion of the Canadian  line's traffic will be drawn from  the middle states through Chicago and Sc. Paul over the Burlington and the Great Northern  Railway tracks."  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  'White WolfY Brigands  Loot and Massacre  Pekin, April 16.���������Brigands under the notorious "White Wolf"  killed hundreds of inhabitants of  the towns of Huh Sien, Chow  Chih and Meih Sein, in the vicinity of Sian Fu, capital of Shen  Si province. They looted the  three towns after capturing them  and are sweeping the entire  country round about.  All foreigners residing at out  stations have been ordered to  Sian Fu, where a column of 1500  regular troops has arrived. Further reinforcements have been  sent.  $10,000 to Relief Fund  Ottawa, April 16. ���������"������Pr"etnier  Borden announced that the government proposes to give $10,000  to the relief fund for the families  of the Newfoundland fishermen  who perished in the recent disaster at sea.  The S. S. Camosun, Union S.  S. Co., arrived at this port on  Sunday afternoon with an unusually large consignment of  miscellaneous freight both for  the ,'cannery and the local merchants.  Mr. J. B. Saint of Stevestqn,  well known as the genial and  capable manager of: the local  cannery, arrived on Sunday accompanied by Mrs. Saint who  will spend the summer here with  her husband".  Mrs. R. O. N. Ellison camejby  the last steamer to join her husband who is in charge of the  construction of the new Bella  Cool a River bridge. Mrs. Ellison  is accompanied by two children.  Mrs. C. Brown and two children arrived from Vancouver on  Sunday. Mrs. Brown comes to  join her husband who is teacher  in charge of Mackenzie School.  Mr. and Mrs. Brown and family  are registered at the Grand View  Hotel.  Mr. Robert Knight, representing the well known firm of McLennan, McFeely & Co., of Vancouver, is in town on business  with the local merchants.  Mr. N. Mackenzie was among  the arrivals by the last steamer  from the south.  Mr. Thomas West arrived back  in town on Sunday after spending the winter at Rivers Inlet,  where he was employed at the  Dominion Government Hatchery.  Mr. West reports that the season's work at the Hatchery has  been in every way a success.  Over twelve and a half million  sockeye salmon eggs were gathered of which about twelve and  a quarter million were successfully hatched. Over two millions  have developed into fry and  have been released into ponds,  from whence they eventually  find their way into the lake. The  last of the fish should be released  about the end of May. The fish  are an exceptionally fine looking  lot and should develop into strong  healthy salmon.  The various canneries on;the  Inlet are busily preparing foAthe  coming season. y  The Victoria sawmill is running-  full time and things look very  promising at the Inlet.  Mr. and Mrs. Charles Draney  of Namu and  Kimsquit, called  here on Sunday en route to the  latter place.  Indian Constable Chas. Tucker  and Herbert Sutherland left for  Vancouver on Sunday in order  to bring to this port a new powerboat which has been built by the  Indian Department of the Dominion Government for the use  of .the agent and the constable  at this place.  "Herbert Sutherland is appointed engineer and will bring her  up under her own power.  A full description of the craft  will appear-in these columns on  her arrival in port.  Mr. T. Murray left on the last  outward bound steamer after a  pleasant and profitable week in  our town.  HAVE YOU GOT YOUR  NATURALIZATION CERTIFICATE? YOU WILL UNDOUBTEDLY NEED IT, PERHAPS  SOONER THAN YOU EXPECT.  IF YOU CANNOT FIND IT,  GET A COPY AT ONCE.  DON'T LET BOWSER BEAT  YOU OUT OF YOUR VOTE.  Local farmers are busily engaged in clearing land and preparing for the coming season's  crops.' Several tons of potatoes  were shipped by last Sunday's  steamer, and more will be ready  for the next boat. Most of these  are consigned to Prince Rupert,  but the neighboring canneries  are also patronizing our local  farmers.   The anxiously awaited run of  Oolichans is slow in arriving,  and it seems probable that this  delicate fish will this year give  Bella Coola the go-bye.-  Body of Colonel Lindsell Not Yet  Found  In spite of the most exhaustive  search of the Bella Coola River  and the lands adjoining, the body  of Colonel Robert F. Lindsell  who disappeared so mysteriously  on Wednesday of last week, and  who, it is assumed, met with his  OO REWARD  Will be paid by the undersigned for the recovery of the  body of Colonel R. F. Lindsell.  G. LINDSELL,  Hagensborg, B. C.  death by drowning while engaged  in his favorite pastime of fishing,  had not been recovered up to the  time of going to press.  The assumption that he is  drowned is greatly strengthened  by the recovery of his fishing rod,  which was found by an Indian  caught in his salmon net some  distance down the river, close to  the long bridge.  Numbers of settlers and many  Indians have been continually  searching the river. The deep  pools have been dragged and all  log jams carefully inspected. In  some instances log jams were  dynamited in the hope of finding  the body, but so far all efforts  have been unavailing.  An enjoyable dance took place  at the Grand View Hotel on Wednesday evening, a large number  of people accepting the invitation  of Mr. Frank Hagan. Dancing  was continued until two o'clock,  with a short interval during  which refreshments were served.  During the evening,   Mr.  C.  Brown, acting for the company,  presented a purse of money to  Mr.   Percy  Gadsden,   in  recognition of his untiring assistance  as violinist.  In a few well-chosen  7������-ords, Mr. Brown told how deeply indebted were the people of  the town  to Mr. Gadsden who  never failed to be present at any  of the dances.   Mr. Gadsden who  was completely taken by surprise  suitably responded.  The people of the valley are  eagerly awaiting the arrival of  Mr. Wm. Manson, M. P. P., when  they will probably be able to find  out what is to be done this summer in the way of public works.  At present there appears to be  no information to hand as to how  much money is to be spent in  the valley.  We understand that Mr. Man-  son is to be invited to take a trip  to the upper end of the valley in  order that he may see conditions  for .himself. Whether he will  avail himself of this opportunity  remains to be seen.  The Courier suggested that he  should take this trip last fall,  before the government "went  broke," so that he could put forward our claims in an intelligent  manner, but he did not go.  We are sure that the boys will  go easy over the rock-slides if  they take him along. They will  undoubtedly recollect that he is  not used to roughing it as they  are, and will consequently have  sympathy for him, as he. has always had for them. Probably a  trifle more.  Fishery-officer Randolph Saugstad is in town busily engaged  in getting the Dominion government power-launch Merlin ready  for the water.  T. P. Saugstad, recently returned from Kimsquit, has been  appointed engineer at the Bella  Coola cannery.  Mr. Wm. Graham of the Crossing paid a brief visit to town on  Thursday last.  Robert Lees of Atnarko arrived  in town on Thursday. He will  spend the summer at Rivers Inlet  in the capacity of Dominion government fishing-officer.  Rev. T. C. Colwell is out of  town this week end. He is visiting Firvale and the Crossing and  will return to town about midweek.           A special Easter service was  held at the Mackenzie School last  Sunday evening, the Rev. T. C.  Colwell preaching a most interesting and instructive sermon to  an unusually large congregation.  The singing was most hearty, the  choir rendering an anthem in a  very pleasing manner.  Many people from the town  attended the Easter song service  at the Indian mission church.  Rev. W. H. Gibson was the  preacher, and Rev. T. C. Colwell  officiated at the baptizing of a  child.  The   local   Indians    are   well  known as a musical people and  the singing on this occasion came  as a surprise to many who had  not previously attended the mission church on a like occasion, j  The songs and Bible readings by I  the children was very creditable!  indeed and reflects great credit;  on the Rev. and the Misses Gib- j  son who are responsible for their!  tuition.  A PRETTY WEDDING!  Avery pretty home wedding  took place on Tuesday last at the  residence of Mr. and Mrs.' B. F.  Jacobsen at 3 p. m.,.when Miss  Muriel Fonceca, daughter of the  late Dr. Richard John Taylor %  Fonceca and Caroline Fonceca  of Brentwood, England, and  Donald Creighton Balfour, sen  of the late Dr. Donald Creighton  Balfour and Edith Balfour of  Elgin, Scotland, were joined in  bonds of holy matrimony.  The Rev. H. Sageng, pastor of  the Augsborg Church, Hagensborg, officiated at the ceremony,  the ritual used being the one in  vogue in the Norwegian Lutheran Church.  Numbered among the guest's  invited were many of the old-  time settlers residing in the vicinity. Those attending from  the town included, Mr. and Mrs.  I. Fougner, Mr. and Mrs. B.  Brynildsen, Mrs. A. C. Christenson, Misses Addie and Mildred Gibson, and 'Miss A. M.  Beatty of Vancouver.  The house was beautifully  decorated for the occasion, the  tasteful arrangement of flowers  and evergreens presenting a  charming effect.  The bride wore a very becom-.  ing gown of embroidered mull  with orange blossoms, and was  attended by Miss Winnif red Peck-  nold as bridesmaid. Mr. Chas.  Way, of Vancouver, supported  the bridegroom as best-man.  A daintily served wedding  breakfast was served after the  ceremony.  Mr. and Mrs. Balfour will reside in the valley for the present.  The Courier offers its hearty  congratulations and extends its  best wishes to the newly wedded  couple.  j    QIltttrrl|_Ntittrr    \  Sunday School     -     2 : 00 p. m.  GosfKL Skkvick by Mr. E.

SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1914.  f .w  * Impresses and JMonuments.  \ "'--..Attorney/ - General    B q w s ,e r  speaking tb-a meeting of Conser-'  ' .vatives of jVard Four; in Vancouver said, "that If the day ever  . came "'when :'t}ie   Conservative  party Twould be.called^upon to  retire from public'life in British  "Columbfa,'-they would "have the  satisfaction of knowing that they  \had left. their impress oh  the  public life',of the province, and  . the monuments of their admiriis-  , tration would remain for all time  to come." '.   >  .  The, marked decadence in the  agricultural   industry   and   the.  ���������rapidly-increasing importation of  ' foodstuffs that .should be. raised7  here,  is "one  of  the impresses  which,the! government has left  ' upon the life of the province. /-  The enormous bond guarantees  to which the province has been  committed.,-by the .Bowser-Mc-  Bride government; the loan of  $10,600,000 to take the place of  the" surplus which was boastfully  proclaimed to be laying in the  bank; the nearly six million acres  of the most accessible lands in  . 'the province held by speculators,  to the  exclusion  of   the bona-  fide settlers, are a few' more-of  the impresses which the'gov'ern-  ment can truthfully claim to have'  left qn the life of the province.  ' On the subject of monuments  we do not care to dwell, but just  to show we agree with the-At-  .torney-General we just mention  an'increase in the public debt of  $10,000,000 up to date, with more  to follow;.an interest liability on  ���������   account of railway guarantees,  equal to one-fourth of our annual  revenue.   These monuments we  Bincerely hope may not "remain  for all  time to  come."     Then  finally there will be a monument  in London in the person of Sir  Richard himself comfortably enthroned as Canadian high commissioner.  o .  o     o     o     o  Of course there are hundreds  of lesser monuments ehe province  over, such as roads which start  nowhere and go nowhere, bridges  which nobody wanted and rarely  ever use,*/but of these we will  not speaki/  ,o     o.   ' o     o     o     '  The New Hazelton Bank  Robbery.  The desperadoes who held up  the Union Bank of Canada at  New Hazelton last -.veek, met  with a warm reception  at the  hands of the citizens, who evidently decided to take no chances  on them being captured by the  provincial police. The result of  their prompt action vyas that two  of the bandits were killed and  three wounded.  How will the Attorney-General  like this impertinent interference  with the work of his department.  Mayhap he will institute enquiries that may lead to tho arrest of some of these citizens for  carrying firearms without a  license. It is safe to say, however, that only for the prompt  action of the people of the.town  six thugs would now be eligible  for membership in that rapidly  growing Association of Escaped  Desperadoes.  As a coi)temporary points out,  the capture of a criminal by the  provincial' police has become the  conspicuous exception to an established rule. It is a notorious,  fact that along the Skeena the  ���������settlers realize that if law and  order are to'be enforced they  themselves are to do the work  which properly belongs.to the  department of which Mr. Bowser  is the head. -  ��������� It is abundantly clear that the  provincial police system as it is-  at present organized is'not capable of dealing with crime in the  outlying districts.  We do not wish to cast any re-  flection on' the members pf^ the  force, or to say that they do" not  endeavor to do their duty, but  we do say that ��������� they ' are not  equipped, trained, disciplined or  organized as they'ought to be.  ' V������e believe that what-,is- required is a well equipped mounted  force with a distinctive uniform,  such as the Royal Northwest  Mounted Police., Such a force  'would make such outrages as  that at New Hazelton a rare if  not actually impossible occurrence. ' .'  Richard on his success in obtaining this coveted office.  It has long been known that  Sir Richard was anxious to get  away ��������� from British Columbia  politics and breathe a freer air.  There is just one thing that  may crop up in the minds of some  people: that it is strange that  Sir Richard; endowed with the  knightly dignity of the noble  order to .which he belongs, should,  not feel it is duty to stay here,  on his native heath, and face the  maturing conditions so largely of  his own creation. ,  Undoubtedly there will be those  who will say that recognizing  that the jig is up he is seeking a  safe asylum while there is yet  time.  Sir Richard and the High  ' Commissionership.  'The general supposition is that  Mr. Borden has offered Sir Richard the high commissionership..  It is hard to imagine Mr. Borden making up his mind so quickly. Nevertheless we sincerely  hope the report is true, in which  case we heartily congratulate Sir  Many people have wondered  why Dr. McGuire, of Vancouver,  "flopped" after, his show of independence in connection with  the further guarantee of bonds  of the Canadian* Northern Railway at. the last session of the  legislature.  . Parkei\ Williams, M. P. P.,  speaking at South Vancouver  said, "Do'you know why? McGuire had a desire to be superannuated as< senator at. Ottawa.  He had sort of been promised the  job. When he/began to show  independence, they held it over  his head that he might not get  this job if-he did hot fall into  line."   '  o     o     o     o     o  The Victoria Colonist recently  had a leading article qn the  highly important and enthralling  theme of gum-chewing. At first  we very nearly made the mistake  of reading the title of the interesting essay as "gum-shoeing,"  thinking that it might deal with  the methods of one Wm. Manson,  M. P. P., who.is. widely known'  as an accomplished political gumshoe artist.  ������   o    o     o     ������    ������  John Oliver opened his address  at Prince Rupert by inviting W.  Manson, M. P. P., to come forward as he had something to say  to him. Needless to say Wobbly  William was not on deck.  There appears to be some difference of opinion among the  settlers of Chicken Lake regarding where a certain road should  be started from. Mr. Manson  addressing a public meeting at  that place suggested that a vote  be taken on the question. Acting  on  his   suggestion  a^vote  was  taken and the matter is apparently settled.  Mr.. Manspn at Hagensborg  last fall, refused.to allow a vote  to be taken on a similar matter.  Bella Coola Valley is an older  settlement than Chicken Lake,  and the settlers have probably  a better knowledge of local conditions'and requirements. The  reason of, this discrimination is  that while Mr. Manson may still  have hopes 'of some votes, at  Chicken Lake, he can clearly sec  his finish -in Bella Coola Valley.  i   - *  o     o     o     o     o  Fancy, Sir Richard addressing  an Eastern audience on the conservation of the forest wealth of  this province. All that Sir Richard has ever done towards conserving our forests he did in his  early youth. He useel to shoot  wood-peckers,    j  o     o     o     o     o  Chinese Servants.  The almost unprecedentedly  atrocious murder of his mistress  by a Chinese servant'should serve  to set many people thinking  deeply.  Those who follow the custom  of employing Chinese boys as  household' servants/ usually at  low wages on account of his being allowed to attend, school,  must accept this awful tragedy  as a warning.  The demoralizing'effect these  Orientals must have on the white  boys and" girls with whom they  are brought into contact cannot  well be overestimated.  A search of the criminal records of any of our coast cities  will show that the Chinese are  given to crime, often of the most  unspeakable character. *  A Chinaman is absolutely devoid of sex morality, and the extent of his depravity is limited  only by his opportunities.  It seems somewhat anomalous  that with the constantly increasing influx of capable white girls  .there should'be room for Oriental  servants in this country.  The Oriental standard of  morals, character-, and all else  that pertains to a white citizenship are unalterably opposed to  our own' and no mingling of the  races, especially among children,  should be any longer tolerated  in this province.

The.gradual, way  in which the government organs  are leading up to the swallowing  of the proposition is illun:;rative  and significant.     At first there  was much talk of obstinate demands   by  the government-for  full information as to C. N. R.  finances and for a large measure  of security by way of personal  endorsation   from   Sir   William  Mackenzie and Sir Donald Mann.  Now.the talk is all of satisfactory   information   having   been  furnished and of the excellence  of the road.    It. is tacitly admitted in the government press that  everything is  now  pretty well  "arranged."    Govern mentaudi-  tors have spent a few days in  the head office of the C. N. R.  at Toronto and according to inspired  report have  come  back  with a brief that justifies  the  proposed bond guarantee.  It took Messrs. Gutelius and  Lynch-Staunton two years to  'investigate' the National Transcontinental, but when a report  is wanted on the whole G.'N. R.  system it can be obtained according to political requirements  in a week or so.  The public, however, are now  a little too wise and too suspicious  to be fooled, by all this obvious  stage-play and ostentatious appearance of driving a hard bar  gain with the railway knights.

Now, parcels from England intended  for the Bahamas  | are forwarded by way of New  | York, so that in the case of a  I Canadian parcel intended for the  [ Bahamas we witness theinterest-  | ing performance of its beingiirst  sent to England, then from England back to New York, before  proceeding*on its way to its destination.
