He  rcit  Jul  iat  -'  ��������� 4!  rnpaig'n  on   Monday evening,  e chair was occupied by Mr.  Lauritson, who, basking in the  nahine of  the presidency  of  ������   Hagensborg    Conservative  b, cannot be expected toques-  n any single thing said or done  [.the'party which .accords him  ch   high   honor.      The  first  aker  was   Mr. Lindsell, the  :al Conservative secretary, who  tertained   the  audience  to a  tal of the work done in the  ;lley, such as the building of  fads, bridges, etc., all of which  Id be attributed to the activi-  of   the   Conservative   club,  ch  disappointment was  felt  Mr. Lindsell did not enter  o the question of the useful-  ss or the cost of these~works,  ft these points were of course  efully evaded.  rlr. Manson opened his speech  stating  it was now 6 years  ce he came before the public  this district as a candidate,  ,t he then was elected by a  .^substantial majority.    He stated  also that in the later election he  gjiad been returned; but forget to  Jf|tate with.what majorities.  e then went into a eulogy of  financial policy adopted by  Conservative government  n it came into power in 1903  which is, in the opinion of  y the best part of the history  his party. It has, however,  ....^ipn rehearsed so many times  ifffitt it need not be dilated upon.  '"^Because of this policy, the pre-  flailing deficit was turned into a  ^fiffplus, which increased year by  '^|ye|ir until three years ago it  :'������reached the huge sum of $8,000,-  ���������-,*-?������00 on deposit at the banks at  ";^0'ne time.    Then the great ques-  ,~^tion came, what to do with the  ; ^/sjairplus.    This problem was sett-  ^ "Idea satisfactorily to some people  '.-/atfleast.    It was spent at such a  ^;;5?apid rate that 1912 saw areduc-  'Jfcion of three million dollars, .the  ������*f  *\next six millions, and then the  '* deluge.    Now the government is  'Hard up same as everybody else  and all on account of the Balkan  /"War in the first place.    This is  the   gospel   according   to   Wm.  Manson.    The railway policy was  /[then elucidated by telling first  ,about  the   Liberal  criticism  of  \the Canadian Pacific railway; and  how mistaken, history has proven  * the Liberals to have been.    Then  the Grand Trunk Pacific received  J* Sjome attention from the speaker,  and after that the statesmanlike railway policy of Hon. Sir  Richard McBride was duly set  forth. He forgot to mention  that with the huge pledges given  by the province in aid, so very  little of the province is opened  up for settlement by this road,  because it parallels the C. P. R.  from Kamloops' to salt water.  Mr. Manson then told about different measures which had received the attention of the last  session of the legislature.  1 At the conclusion of Mr. Man-  son's address, the platform was  spoke also of the conditions under which the men were forced  to work on the construction of  railways in the province. Dealing with the extravagance of the  present administration he suggested that Mr. Manson had been  remiss in his duties in not demanding a closer accounting.  H. L. Harris, secretary of the  local Liberal association on being  granted the platform, dealt first  with the subject of the amendment to the Election Act, which  he charged made an unfair distinction between natural born  British subjects and those of  foreign birth. He pointed out  that in the case of a naturalized  subject who took the required  oath in order to have his name  placed on the voters' list,'he was,  under the Bowser amendment,  virtually considered guilty of  perjury until he proved himself  innocent by attaching his certificate of naturalization to his  application. At this point a voice  was heard, "why is my oath not  as good as an Englishman's,"  and the answer came, "ask Bowser." Dealing with the Conservative platform the speaker invited Mr. Manson to> explain  what effort had been made to  carry it out, a task which the  member carefully refrained from  attempting. 'Mr. Manson was  taken to task for his recent statement that he favored Woman's  Suffrage, when as a matter of  fact he had opposed it in the  Legislsture, and also in regard  to government ownership of public utilities. Mr. Manson was  also asked to explain several  items from the public accounts,  but in thisalso he failed completely to satisfy the meeting, which  showed its disapproval in no uncertain manner.  The meeting was brought to a  close at about midnight and was  considered to have had excellent  effect on the electorate from the  Liberal standpoint.  ing the ire of the meeting. At  this point a disturbance arose  resulting in a prominent Conservative being compelled to leave  the meeting amidst a storm of  jeers. After this the meeting  was quickly brought to a close.  Bella Coola Valley never saw the  like- No wonder that the Conservatives are "delate sick turn-  turn."

The  same thing- occurred in Ailly  Woods where we captured numerous prisoners.  War Tax on Letters  and Postcards  Comes Into Force April 15  Bella Coola Meeting  A veritable storm cloud burst  upon the head of Wm. Manson  on Tuesday evening. Mr. Man-  son talked Dominion and civic  matters, and attacked the Liberal party, the Liberal press generally, and the Bella Coola Courier and its editor particularly.  Nothing could induce him to confine himself to provincial politics.  Mr. Gibson, who followed, said  that he had voted Conservative  in the past but never, he said,  could he again vote for any man  to support the present aggregation at Victoria.  Mr. Harris, spoke of the purchase of submarines, the government's avowed policy of reserving a portion of every coal area,  and several other matters, and  invited Mr. Manson to offer an  explanation of his attitude in regard to them. Again Mr. Man-  son deliberately evaded the points  raised and only succeeded in rais-  Ottawa, April 8.���������A war tax  of one cent has been imposed on  each letter and postcard mailed  in Canada for delivery in Canada,  the United States or Mexico,  and on each letter mailed in Canada for delivery in the United  Kingdom and British possessions  generally, and wherever the two  cent rate applies, to become  effective on and from the 15th  April, 1915.  This War Tax is to be prepaid  by the senders by means of a  War Stamp for sale by Postmasters and other postage stamp  vendors.

For some time past there has  been a concerted attempt to show  - that the Liberal party in British  Columbia, is seriously disorganized, with a view no doubt, towards bringing about a condition  in the party such as is desired  by the .government. In the Conservative newspapers one reads  daily the alleged doings of the  Liberal leaders and all sorts of  weird theories are brought forward as being the probable plans  of the party.  Mr. Wm. Manson in his recent  speeches spent a great portion  of his time'jn bullying the Liberal leaders, the party as a whole  and the Liberal press, forgetting  that it is not the Liberal party  that is on trial today, but the so  called Conservative government  of Sir Richard McBride. They  are before the country on their  record and it is only fair they  should discuss -their record, but  this Mr. Manson refused to do.  Liberalism, is on' the crest"of a  wave that is fast sweeping the  country, and no amount of claptrap nonsense from Mr. Manson,  who is afraid to face the issue  fairly,.or the Conservative press  can alter this condition.  Mr. Manson spoke of the Liberal machine. - If a band of earnest men who are fighting, and  have for years fought, against  odds for a great cause���������that of  the freedom ;of the people���������can  be called a machine, then there  is a Liberal machine. But in the  sense of a small and Select clique  who are seeking to railroad their  own candidates into power there  is no such organization, and  never will be. There is no campaign fund collected from the  corporations and others who hope  to do business with the government.  When Liberal candidates travel  they pay their fare, so does Wm.  Manson, but only on the odd occasions when he cannot sneak a  ride on some government launch.  One fact is significant; not one  so-called Independent Liberal  has attempted to enter the field  against the choice of the convention, yet there are on record a  large number of Independent  Conservatives.  The Liberal party is not only  an organization but an ideal. Its  member are loyal Canadians,  who put the interests of their  country above any party.   They  earnestly believe in the mandate  that the people shall rule.  Throughout the province today  the people are flocking to the  Liberal standard, not necessarily  because they are Liberals, but  because they believe in the  honesty and integrity of the men  who have been chosen to represent the party at the polls, and  also for the reason that they  have become heartily disgusted  with the extravagance, graft,  and overbearing methods of the  present administration. . This is  true in Bella Coola Valley as else;  vvhere, and no one has a better  right to know it than Wm. Man-  son, after his experience at his  recent meetings here.  v.  o     o     o     o     o  The Submarine Deal  Before the' Public Accounts  committee Auditor-General Eraser speaking of his efforts to get  vouchers for the purchase of the  two submarines at Seattle by Sir  Richard McBride for $1,150,000  said:  -"I was called on to pay $1,150,  000 without any evidence that  the money had been 'expended  and that proper delivery'of the'  craft had been made. I tried in  every way to get satisfactory  vouchers or something to take  their places. I was shown Premier McBride's cheque, drawn  in favor of himself and endorsed  in favor of Lieutenant PHcher,  of.the Esquimalt dockyard, but  that was not sufficient evidence.  On September 24 I wrote to the  manager of the Canadian Bank  of Commerce at Victoria asking  for information in regard to the  drafts. I got a reply .stating  that he was taking the matter up  with the provincial authorities.  1 thought I had a right to iKe ih:  formation and I could not understand why the bank manager at  Victoria, Mr. Crawford, could  not answer without referring to  the local authorities. I decided  to go to British Columbia my self."  The auditor-general then told  of finally getting copies of three  drafts which had been made out  in payment for the submarines:  One of them had been cashed in  Seattle by J. B. Patterson, manager of the Seattle Construction  and Drydock Company. The  amount of this draft was $249,-  961. Two other drafts, one for  $500,000 and one for .$399,437,  had been sent to New York and  paid over by Patterson to the  Electric Boat Co., which firm  were the original builders of the  submarines for the Chilean government at a contract price of  $900,000. "What \he Seattle  draft of $249,961 was for remains  to be."seen," said the auditor-  general.  What has come ov������r the Kaiser? He.is almost as silent these  days as the great gunS of his  invincible navy:" Even an invocation to Allah would be a relief, as indicating that his majesty still entertains a glimmer of  hope that' all the enemies who  are fighting against him without  cause save-envy are on the point  of being prostrated at his conquering'feet.  For a man who made a special  point of his determination to  "have no truck or trade wjth the  Yankees" Sir Richard; Mchride  seems to find it necessary to make  a good many trips to New York  and other American centres of  influence.

Manufacturers of  CLOTHING, SHIRTS,  CAPS and OVERALLS  who are responsible for it can  carry to a "triumphant conclusion" if given an opportunity.  It is so'wise that when it was inaugurated it caused a cabinet  split, and now that it has reached  a climax there has been another  ministerial uprising. It is so  wise that the Premier has gone  to Ottawa seeking some way out  of the mess into which he has  dragged this province. The condition of the branch lines on  Vancouver island is a monument  to the wisdom shown by Sir  Richard McBride when more  than five years ago he proclaimed  his policy to the people of the  province.  o     o     o     o     o  War Graft.  The lid is off at Ottawa. One  Tory grafter has been shamed  into turning back to the Dominion  treasury $6,500 "excess profits"  which he made out of a deal with  the militia department in connection with war supplies. Another one has admitted that he  was paid $1200 to exercise the  influence he possessed with the  minister of militia on behalf of  another "contractor."  Sir Robert Borden has not been  able  to  restrain   his   voracious  followers.    The war graft investigation has already revealed the  most scandalous state of affairs  in the history of Canada.    Even  in the face of the crisis through  which  the  Empire   is   passing,  and Regardless of the physical  well-being   of Canada's   young  men who are fighting our battle  at the front, the soulless, conscience-seared "contractors" exacted  exhorbitant  profits  from  their transactions with the government.      Our   brave   soldiers  were  shod   with   rotten   boots,;  which one of them said he had  only but to wiggle his toe in and  the leather burst.    But, as one  of the contractors explained, the  shoes  were  never   intended  to  withstand  the   conditions in  a  damp climate.     In other words,  they were stock shoes made for  city wear, and hundreds of them  were burnt as useless, and probably in order to conceal their defects when a demand ai-ose for  an investigation.

Bella Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  T^HE REASONS for this enviable condi-  ���������*��������� tion of affairs are obvious to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  -Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.  |>ELLA COOLA and the surrounding  country possesses wonderful wealth  in timber, as yet almost entirely undeveloped, and perhaps at no other point  on the Northern Coast is there the same  opportunity for a remunerative investment as in a saw mill at Bella Coola.
