Premier  S. S. Camosun, after an absence  of several weeks owing to the  accident to her near Prince Rupert, made her appearance again  on Monday shortly after noon.  The large, amount of traffic handled caused the 24 hours delay.  There were only two arrivals for  this place, Mr. and Miss Fred-  rickson. The exodus was on a  larger scale as no less than ten  persons departed. They were:  G. F. Allen, Dr. Quinlan, R. O.  Jennings, E. J. Conway, Mr. and  Mrs. Dr. Sutherland, Mr: Bergman, and "Mrs. Brynildsen and  two, children.  at some mineral deposits on Dean  Channel. It is said hefound the  possibilities of these claims sufficiently promising, to have him  recommend that they be further  and more thoroughly examined.  Mrs. B.. Brynildsen with her  two smallest children, went to  New Westminster to pay a visit  to her two oldest sons, Birger  and Alger, who are attending  the high school. She intends to  return in two weeks.  on the construction of the Bell&  Coola bridge met with the misfortune last Thursday of having  his left hand thumb crushed between a heavy piece of timber  and a bar of iron. In the absence of the doctor it is believed  that in order to save the member  he must go the hospital at Bella  Bella or Ocean Falls.  John Widsten, fishery officer,  requests us to announce that a  bounty of one dollar will be paid  for hair-seals killed after April  15. The tails will be accepted as  evidence and may be brought to  either W. H. Gibson, J. P. or  John Widsten, who will issue certificates which will be honored  by the Dominion government.  There is no bounty on sea lions  this year.  'There.has this year been more  rain than usual for the month of  April, but in spite of that the  Saloomt Lumber Co. is finding it  difficult to pet a sufficient supply  of water to run its mill.  Another boy has arrived to  gladden the household of Mr.  and Mrs. 0. J. Lokken. He-did  not let his advent be known sooner to the Courier, hence the somewhat belated announcement.  rS'  VN  ;-Asquith announced in the House of Commons that drastic action  ^fhsuppress the revolutionary movement in Ireland is being taken.  ,v*!0utside of Dublin the country is tranquil.

It is  their intention to make their  home with relatives residing near  Hagensborg.  G. F. Allen, after spending a  week in town selling the merchants as many drygoods as their  judgment approved, returned to  Vancouver well pleased with his  stay.       .._.   Dr. W. J. Quinlan believing  that Mr. Manson's fences have  received all the attention he can  give them at present, took a trip  to Ocean Falls to look after his  private interests, as he has some  fences of his own that need looking after.       '           R. O. Jennings, our genial  road-superintendent, while spending only a few days with us  certainly made good use of his  time; arriving Thursday evening!  early next morning he was off  for a 40 mile trip up the road;  he came back the next day, and  on Sunday inspected the public  works carried on at the wharf  and the bridge. He went away  on the Camosun for a visit to  Victoria. He will no doubt return with instructions to carry  on the necessary public works in  the district.  Mr. and Mrs. Dr. Sutherland  departed for a short stay at Victoria.  Dr. Sutherland will be in attendance at the.provineial examination of physicians applying  for permission to practice their  profession in the province. As  Dr. Sutherland is a graduate  with the highest honors from the  University   of   Edinburgh,   the  examination will be no ordeal to  her.  During her absence we must  try to keep well, as there will be  no doctor here.    She intends to  be back on the 14th of May.  Mr. Bergman of the Johnson  Sawmill Co., went away with the  promise that he would see us  again within two weeks.  Born to Mr. and Mrs.Tver Ny-  gaard on the 22nd of this month,  a son.          A. H. Tomlinson, assistant horticulturist, expresses in a letter  just received regrets that he is  unable to visit Bella Coola prior  to leaving for the East. His successor, Mr. Aubrey Neale, has  already assumed his duties and  will, Mr. Tomlinson states, visit  Bella Coola in due course.  ko. It is also the intention to  start work for the Red Cross  Society at Kimsquit and Ocean  Falls. When organization is completed there is no doubt efficient  work will be accomplished.  In our last issue it was stated  that the Red Cross committee  were planning for the celebration of Empire Day. The secretary of the committee informs  us that such is not the case and  writes us in part as follows:  "At a meeting of the committee held April 5, the following  resolution was passed���������'That in  the event of the usual Empire  Day celebrations being held, the  Red Cross eommitte undertakes  to organize a lunch department  on the same lines as last year,  and extend their efforts still  further if possible.'  "We do not feel it comes within our province to organize the  annual celebration, but we will  be only too pleased to take the  opportunity to raise funds for  Red Cross Society by providing  a refreshment department, etc.  "E. M. Sutherland, M.D.,  Secretary, Bella Coola Red Cross  Committee."  The S.S. British Columbia called on Monday morning with a  load of freight for the cannery.

C, states  the regiment wrill go overseas as  soon as it is up to strength.  Major Bullock-Webster is now  going over the northern country  collecting suitable recruits. He  states that if any Bella Coola  men want to go he wilj provide  for transportation and promises  they will have a chance to see  Europe soon.  -The Young People's Missionary Society holds fts monthly  meeting at the Lower Bella Coola  School tomorrow evening.  The Temperance Society at  Hagensborg is preparing for a  great temperance rally on May  17, Norway's day of independence.  It is the intention to begin the  festivities in the forenoon at 11  o'clock in the Colony Hall.. An  elaborate program of songs,  music and speeches is being provided for. And after that the  ladies will serve refreshments  free of charge. It will not be  necessary to urge the people to  attend, they will all be there. ,  E,. J.

Sir Sam on the Defense.  , Major-General Sir Sam Hughes,  minister of.'militia, has, obedient  to the summons of Premier Bor-  d3.1, returned  from'England to  sions.  If Sir Sam is entirely-without  '������uilt in  this affair it seems it  should not be necessary for him  to engage as many as three eminent lawyers to extricate him  from his troubles.  We surmise that the common  people are getting rather tjred  of the huge profits, commissions  and salaries paid out by our gov-  do not avail themselves of the  information sent to them.  The government is also supple  menting this literature by send  ing out speakers and demonstrators and they.are no'doubt doing  much, good -wherever they go;|  but to out-of-the-way points like  Bella Coola, the great expense  and large amount of valuable  time needed to reach them a, most  forbid'the sending of lecturers  to such places., And yet the farmers so situated need the information as much as those more  fortunately located. Here is a  situation the local Farmers' In:  stitute should .make an effort to  relieve, and we shall take the  liberty to outline a plan from  which if adopted it is believed  much good can be obtained.

The chickens are coming home  to roost at last.  ' Mr. Manson will find in the  next election that it does not  pay to put his faith in earthly  princes.  ' facilities for filling the contracts,  he says- they were backed ' by a  responsible company called the  Guarantee Company of North  America.   ,  The minister of militia defended Col. Allison's alleged share  in the profit by maintaining that  tention at this time also. But  we understand that he aspires to  become Minister of Agriculture,  to be the one person in the province clothed with the highest  authority in the direction of pro  Reag the Literature.  The other day in calling at a  farmer's house  the- farmer, "in  the courseof conversation,.pointing to a stack of literature piled  high on a shelf said to the writer:  "The government is sending out  a lot of valuable information on  agricultural. subjects,   but   the  great, trouble is I.find so little  time to read.it."  " It must be admitted by every  candid ' ,per son   that,   broadly  speaking,' the-government is doing a great work in its efforts to  he had as much right to a com- <iike a huge joke. But he takes  mission as a businessman had to it seriously enough himself, arid  hlSpr0fits- the other day in  'order to do  " something to qualify himself for  moting agriculture.     To  those!improve the methods of farming  who know William  this seems (in all its branches, and it should  be the duty of the-farmers to see  Sir Sam is very frank in his  statements;  he  has nothing to*  conceal, but at the same time he  does not deny the salient facts  of the charges.   It still remains  trua that illegitimate profits to  the a jiourit of millions of dollars  have been allowed to middlemen.  But there  is no law .against  making huge profits and commissions, even out of our own  distress.   The politicians consider money thus made to be only a  fair recompense for patriotic services.   It seems that in dealing  with  public funds  it does -not  matter how much you can obtain  for your own private use as the  manner of taking it.    If the taking of large amounts from the  treasury can   be done without  violating the criminal statutes it  is.a really commendable act, it  shows,.that a person puts a proper estimate upon himself and his  services.  These   American    companies  with a paid up capital of $1000  and $3000 respectively, but yet  so highly responsible, had to be  . furnished with about $3,000,000  before they could tackle the contracts; but according to the latest  advices although  the  contracts  were awarded in June only about  the position in the eyes of Mr  Bowser at least, he went over to  to it that they benefit by it to the  utmost. But we fear there are  a great many.in the same position  introductory talks on thesubjects  assigned to them. "These persons  should'constitute the Institute's  staff of lecturers so to speak. To  them he should assign subjects  with  which  they, should   make  themselves familiar by studying  the literature furnished tnem by  the officer- of ;the Institute.    At  a forthcoming meeting of the organization the person appointed  should present what he has thus  learned in a speech for the instruction of the audience to be  followed by a general discussion.  The Farmers' Institute should  l hold   meetings' regularly   once  every two weeks or at least once  a month, when one or more subjects should be dealt with in the  manner indicated.  The Farmers' Institute ought  to continue an all-the-year campaign along these lines and in  that way a considerable amount  of valuable in formation would  be made available for the use of  the farmers  It is not deemed necessary at  this time to deal with 'this-plan  any further in detail, but will  submit to the executive of the  Leap Year in Bella Coola  BY ONE WHO HAS FAILED.  <������>  Tho First of, January of the year  Nineteen Sixteen, it dawned cold, crisp and clc:i>  It seemed a fitting day for high emprise,  Auspicious omen to a maiden'a eyes!;  For four long years I'd waited all in vain!  No chance to change friy name,  but now, again  Hope lived.    I rose at earliest dawn of day  (The early bird secures the worm,  they say).  And first I called at B. McB.

This struck me as a good idea, so I  Off to the mill right joyfully did hie.  Two bachelors lived there, and surely one  I could secure, but no! my breathless run  Was all in vain.    Indeed, they were most good,  And said that they would help me all they could,  But till, the flume-was built, the cannery closed,  They really could not do as I proposed."  They rather thought that I had come"too fast,  And in my hurry must have surely passed  Two charming houses, owned by single men,  Whose names were A and ������������������������.

A description, series by our soldier correspondent, Jlrchie *D.
'Darlington, late of Shushartie Bay, B. C.     ~
ffm invalided to England and
once more to the pJace where
'born.    It seems as if Thad
waked   from   sleep  with a
||iricmbranceof a nightmare
���reached'the height of viol-
the shock of battle, and
lied in the agony of wounds,

eal again.
I have read in the Courier that
you. are raising a'new regiment
on the Coast���the Com.ox-Atlin
Regiment���and it makes meglad;
glad  indeed   to  know  that  the
whole of our race from the Cape
to Vancouverand from Melbourne
to London is true to itself.     1
have known the glory of fighting
side by side with Tommy Atkins
and the fine and stalwart boys
from Australia, I have, likewise
seen the Sout Africans in Egypt,
and have come to the conclusion
that the British Empire is a religion   with   a   potency  greater
than  Mahommet,  and  equal to
Brahma.    Witness the battle of
Anzac.    It was an epic which excelled in heroism anything that
Greek or Roman stories ever portrayed. . Three days of,fighting
and of dearly won victory, and

boys, bloodstained, haggard with
fatigue,   their   lips   black   and
burstingHvith thirst, threw themselves   into  very   simooms  of
slaughter to gain the last goal���������
the ridge called Sari Bair.    They
reached it,  climbed  a  slope  as
steep as the heights of Abraham
in the broad light of day and���
some    shattered   regiments
looked upon the Sea of Marmora.
But they were too few and too
late.     The Turks charged furiously  and   in   massed  divisions
upon the pitifully thin lines, and
by   sheer   weight  of   numbers
forced them back over the crest.
Of those moments I cannot speak
collectively.    Men'fought singly
or in groups, as we are told they
did at Inkerman.    The despatch
says: "TheTurks fought magnificently, calling upon the name of
God, but our soldier boys stood
to it and maintained by many a
Jeed of daring the old traditions
of their race. . . . There was no
flinching, they died in the ranks
where they stood."
What more could be done? The
?ullies were thick with our dead;
the hillside was strewn witl.
enemy corpses, yet indominatc
still, the British rallied at the
-Apex and at Durrants Post; these
A'e had fought for also, and woulc
lold.    And they were held!
It is a story breathless in itf
texture of courage. It is the
story of men fighting against
trials so terrible, as to be almost
animaginable. It is a story ol
pride to ail our race, and if o1
failure, then of failure gloriously
In the diary of a comrade killed
at Durrants Post, I find' written
on August 14th .the following:
"We have been in action eight
Jays now. Eight days of haid-
ship and of horror; eight sleepless nights amidst the snipers
whining bullets and the shrapnel. The regiment, although reinforced by 100 details is reduced
to one-third its strength���a sadly
broken and tired body, bruised
in soul and spirit. Last night
we had the gruesome and horrible
task of burying the pitiful, broken frames of our own dead in
Death Gully. ' Christ, can such
things be?"
Yes,  the British Empire and
British  justice and liberty are
;acred   things,   which    fearless
nen  have given  their lives for
ind mothers their only sons. Not
for all the hosts of the old gods;
for Apollo,  Brahma, or Mahom-
net, has so much blood been shed
>r so much endured as for the
iod of British Liberty.    Therefore, I am glad that a regiment
���s  being  raised  in the Comox-
Atlin district;  it is fine of you
md like a signature to a cheque
���showing that you endorse what
we are doing.    The day is not
far distant now, when  Drake's
drum will be heard off the Devon
shores, and then the waiting and
watching will be over.    I hope
the  Comox-Atlin 'boys  will   be
there for that day.

HAT person so happy and contented as the prosperous farmer?
HAT person so independent?
rHAT ambition more noble than to
be a producer of   the necessaries
of life?
Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;
they are strangers to hard times.
Hp-IE 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 r.o
irrigation. The climste 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 carritd away
over twenty first prizes.
|pELLA 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.
A Protest.
The. American Chamber of
Commerce of Paris has sent the
following cable to President
"In violation of every principle
of humanity, in the face of repeated remonstrances and solemn
warnings on the part of the
United States, the German Government, like an assassin in the
night, treacherously, without
notice, has again struck down
unarmed merchant and passeng
er ships...sending scores of helpless men, women and children to
their deaths.
"On behalf of humanity we
demand that this intolerable sit-
uttion shall cease. On behal.f of
our fellow citizens, murdered and
maimed, we protest against continuance of diplomatic relations
with a government whose blood
madness, ferocity and lawlessness has brought upon it the execration of the civilized world."
