McBride for Ottawa  Ottawa, April 1.���������It is stated  here that Sir Richard McBride  will enter the government in  succession to Dr. Roche as minister of the interior.  London, April 1.���������An official  memorandum regarding war orders states that at least ninety-  five million dollars' worth of war  material and equipment has been  ordered by the Allies from Canada and that this expenditure  does not include that incurred  on behalf of the Canadian contingents, which exceeds twenty-  five millions. Seventy-two Canadian companies have been given  orders for making shrapnel|shells  and sixty-seven are engaged in  making the various parts required. The orders placed in the  United States amount to more  than a billion dollars.  Fall of Przemysl  Due to Military Pressure, Not to Shortage of Supplies  Rome, March 31.���������The surrender of Przemysl was caused by  the fact that the Russians, on  the night of March 21, occupied  the exterior forts, from which  they could bombard the centre  of the city, rather than by a  shortage of ammunition or food,  according to a despatch to the  Messagero from Przemysl.  The surrender was.decided upon after the second sortie made  inthenightof March 21, in which  two army divisions were engaged  The garrison had ammunition  which would have been sufficient  for several more months and  provisions enough to last several  weeks.  The surrender of the Austrians  liberated 5000 Russians held as  prisoners.  Enemy Moves Troops  From East to West  London, April 2���������Advices from  Petrograd direct attention to the  withdrawal of several German  army corps from the field of operations in the east. These army  corps, it is stated, have been  hurriedly despatched to the westward to meet theactivites on the  part of the Allies.  The Evening Chronicle publishes a despatch from Bucharest, Roumania, which asserts  that the surrender of Constantinople and the Dardanelles to  the attacking fleet had been decided upon by the Turkish government, but was blocked at the  last moment by Germany.  Swedish Ship Captured  . ���������; Sunderland, Eng., April 2.���������  The Swedish steamer Goose-  bridge, with a cargo of iron ore,  has been brought into this port  by a British prize crew. The  Goosebridge sailed from Santan-  der, Spain, and her cargo is presumed to have been destined for  Germany.  Sniper Kills French  General  Paris, April -1.���������It is announced that General Rene Joseph  Delarue, chief of a division of  the" French army, was killed  when he was struck in the head  by a bullet while inspecting a  trench at the front.  The government is coming to the country on its record. The  people of Bella Coola are anxiously waiting to hear what Wm.  Manson has to say in this regard. It is so long since that  gentleman addressed a public meeting in this place that the  people have almost forgotten the sound of his voice. That the  government which Mr. Manson has supported has a recoid no  one will deny. But what a record! Our erstwhile representative also has a record, but again, what a record ! Indeed he  has our sympathy in the task before him, especially so as the  time is past when he can any longer expect to soothe the outraged feelings of an indignant electorate with vague promises  of huge appropriations. Mr. Manson must come down to  "brass tacks," the public sentiment demands it, and while  giving him a full measure of British fair play, a full explanation of his and the government's record will be demanded.  As a man sows, so shall he reap, and this must apply to Mr.  Manson. He has assisted in the wholesale alienation of our  natural resources. He has acquiesed in the violation of every  pledge from the government to the people. He himself has  suffered the north to be exploited for the south. He has  favored the policy of auctioning off our townsites to the highest bidders (but not so with the cows on the Colony farm  which were sold to a responsible minister of the crown for a  mere fraction of their value.) Never has he taken a stand in  the interests of the common people as against the corporations  and interests. He is responsible to the people, and the people  will deal with him accordingly. The truth is we do not envy  Mr. Manson, but we wish him well in the private life which  he will be forced to follow after election.  Wants Separate Terms  Geneva, April 1.���������Emperor Joseph is trying to persuade Kaiser  William, through the Vatican,  to permit Austria to conclude  separate peace terms with Russia, according to reports received  here from Vienna. With this  end in view, the Austrian Emperor has arranged an interview  with the papal nuncio.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  The schedule of sailings having  been altered for the summer  season, the S. S. Chelohsin arrived on Sunday morning instead  of Wednesday. Among the passengers for this port was Mr. C.  L. Tolford, representing David  Spencer Ltd. of Vancouver.  Mrs. B. Brynildsen, who went  south by the last steamer, is paying a visit to her sons, Berger  and Alger, who are attending  the Columbian college at New  Westminster. Mrs. Brynildsen  is accompied by her two children  Albert and Grace.  Mrs. G. Lindsell and her son  Herbert, left for Victoria last  Sunday.  A special Easter service will  be held at the Mission Church tomorrow afternoon to which everyone is invited. The Indian choir  have been for some time practicing special pieces for the occasion  and under the instruction of Mr.  W. H. Gibson have achieved  great results.  T. P. Saugstad, engineer at  the local cannery, came to town  on Wednesday and proceeded  across the bay to commence his  duties for the coming season.  Fishery-overseer G. Saugstad  and officer R. Saugstad are busily  engaged in overhauling the  launch Merlin in preparation for  the season's duties.  A field-service post card has-  been received at this office from  P. J. Kenyon who is now in the  firing line in France or Belgium.  Pete was in good health at the  time of writing. It will be remembered that he went to England as a member for Elliott's  Horse, which was afterwards  merged with the first Canadian  contingent   Joseph and Frank Robinson  are at present engaged in enlarging the constable's quarters  by the construction of an extra  room. The Courier protested  strongly at the time the premises  were to be-built both in regard  to the site and on the grounds  that the premises were altogether  inadequate. These matters were  brought before Mr. Manson who  could see nothing wrong with the  proposed site or the plans. The  premises were built on the site  selected by the "powers" in spite  of all protest and consequently  have had to be raised a couple of  feet to keep the water off the  floor and now have to be enlarged.  No amountof tinkering will ever  make the place what it might  have been only for the obtuse-  ness of certain officials in whom  Mr. Manson had full confidence.  A new millinery establishment  will be opened by Mrs. B. F.  Jacobsen on Saturday, April 10,  at 2 p. m. An excellent stock of  ladie's and children's hats will  lie a special feature. The public  is invited.  Provincial Election  Your influence and support  is respectfully requested.  T. D. <PA TTULLO.  Liberal Candidate for Prince Rupert  Riding.  Foreman McRostie and a gang  are engaged in raising the crib-  work on the Necleetsconnay  river, above the bridge, it being  found to be too low to be of the  greatest use in preventing a  flood. The river bed has been  widened in places and obstructions cleared away in an effort  to bring the water back into its  original course.  Vincent Clayton arrived down  from the Upper Country on Tuesday. He reports that the cattle  on the Anaham Lake ranch are  all in first-class shape. On his  return to the Upper Country he  will drive down to Bella Coola a  bunch of steers to supply the  summer's demand for beef.  Mr. A. Hammer of Nootsat-  sum, visited town during the  week.   The first of the oolichan run  has reached here and fair catches  are being made by the Indians.  Needless to say they are thoroughly appreciated and are in  big demand. Next week will  probably see the best of the run.  Constable Broughton has at  present in custody two Indians  who are serving short terms for  drunkenness. Since the jail has  been raised on its foundations it  is unlikely that he will have to  release them before their allotted  terms have expired on account  of the premises being flooded, as  has happened before.  NOTICE  WM. MANSON  Wholesale Slaughter of Game.  An instance of the wanton destruction of game in the interior  country has just come hand from  an authoritative source. There  was a time not many years ago  when the Anaham Lake and  Atche mountains districts abounded with Cariboo. Specimens  may be seen at the provincial  museum at Victoria obtained by  the curator, Mr. Kermonde, in  company with local sportsmen.  Now, however, it would require  much travel on the part of the  most energetic hunter to find a  fresh track in the same country.  The reason is that the cariboo  are no longer there in any number; they have been slaughtered  wholesale and not by the much  criticized and heavily taxed  whiteman hunter, but by the Indians who pay no license fee at  all. All Indians are not alike.  Some have sense enough to see  the necessity of preserving the  game, but not so certain natives  of the Kluskus Lake country.  From accounts to hand it appears  that one of these men recently  slaughtered no less than fifteen  cariboo, most of which were cows  with calves. It is only fair to  say that the Indians of Anaham  Lake are geatly indignant and  are extremely anxious that some  measures be taken to save the  Cariboo from being entirely killed  off.  The writer has known, in years  passed, instances were a handful  of Indians have killed as many  as seventy cariboo in the course  of a few days time.  This matter should surely commend itself to the attention of  the chief game warden. It is  cliflicui'- to see the force of taxing  the whiteman hunter, the trapper and even the farmer, with  the expressed intention of protecting the game, and at the  same time allow the natives to  indulge in wholesale slaughter as  has been the custom in the interior adjacent to Bella Coola.

Judging from recent reports it  seems almost certain that Sir  Richard will shortly wend his  way to Ottawa; leaving this province which he has reduced to a  state of penury to the tender  care of Hon/ W- H. Bowser. It  is up to the people, therefore, to  carefully consider the advisability  Promises which were never kept,  nor really ever intended to be,  as time has conclusively shown.  Mr. Bowser record will not  stand close investigation. His  own uLterances' condemn him,  but while he has brought us to  shame 3n the eyes of the world,  he himself seems devoid of. all  feeling in that regard.  It is not too much to say that  the Hon. W. H. Bowser is quite  the worst attorney-general in the  Dominion of Canada, and as for  such a man aspiring to the premiership, well���������the people will  attend to that.  Try Again Doctor.  The chief organ of the Con-  of entrusting the future of the j servative party reports Hon. H.  province to a man who has not  only brought hisown department,  that of the administration of  justice, into' ill repute, but as  chief adviser to Sir Richard has  assisted in bringing about the  present deplorable condition in  . which we, as a people, find ourselves.  ,Surely a man who has proven  himself  incapable   of   properly  administrating the affairs of a  single department of the government service, cannot be expected  to successfully guide the ship of  state through the shoal waters  of industrial and financial stress.  The administration of justice of  this province has been described  by the chief. justice as "Tainted  at the fountain head," and the  fountain head is Mr. Bowser.  It  is an established fact that he has  consistently used his public office  to swell the business of his private law concern.    He has been  found acting on both sides of a  case in the criminal courts, of  course not personally, but none  the less surely.   We know that  under his supervision, murderers,  outlaws and criminals of all kinds  have been allowed to go free.  The provincial police have become such a joke,  that people  have been known to petition Mr.  Bowser to remove   them  from  certain districts so that law and  order   might   have   at   least   a  chance.     Provincial  constables  have been found dispensing liquor behind the   bars of  "blind  pigs," and this to Mr. Bowser's  personal knowledge.     There is  good ground for the suggestion I  that   the   attorney-genera!   has  shown unjust discrimination in  the granting of liquor licenses.  In fact there is nothing laying  within his grasp that he has not  used to strengthen the political  machine.    By the non-enforcement of the law he has brought  ruin to many  innocent  people,  whose only fault was their simple  trust in the attorney-general.  Since Mr. Bowser assumed of-  1E. Young as saying that the McBride government had reduced  the provincial debt from $16,000,-  000 to $9,000,000. If the statement of the provincial secretary  was correctly reported, he is certainly deplorably ignorant of the  financial administration of the  government of which he is a  member, or else he is merely  trying to hoodwink, the public.  On February 27, the minister  of finance stated in his budget  speech that the net debt of the  province was $20,748,147, an increase of $10,000,000 within the  last year. In 1903 when the McBride government took office  the debt was $11,486,000, so  instead of being reduced it has  increased by over $9,000,000.  II is unreasonable to believe  that Dr. Young is not familiar  and therefore are not to be feared.  o     o     s     ������     o  A Scrap of Paper.  On   November   25,   1909,   the  Victoria Colonist published  on  its front page a pledge signed by  Sir Richard McPride and headed  "My Undertaking."   The pledge  had to do with the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway and contained the followingassurances:  "To secure a first-class freight  and passenger ferry service from  a point,on the mainland at or  near English  Bluff, to connect  with the island of Vancouver,  thence by rail to Victoria; to continue the same to Barkley Sound.  Said ferry to be equal to any on  this continent.  "Construction of the Barkley  Sound section to commence simultaneously with construction upon  the mainland of the Canadian  Northern system in British Columbia.  "The whole work to be undertaken and completed within four  years, to be begun three months  after the ratification of the completed contract by the provincial  legislature.  "FAILING TO CARRY OUT  THESE PROMISES, I SHALL  OFFER MY RESIGNATION TO  THE LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR."  This "undertaking" received  an appropriate setting in the  Colonist, for in one corner of the  page appeared the picture of Sir  Richard and in another corner  that of Sir Donald Mann.

Many instances have already  come to light in which Imperial  extremity has proved the mother  of opportunity for exploitation  of the situation;      Submarines  were purchased at a price at least  four hundred  thousand  dollars  beyond their actual cash value������������������  if indeed they were of any real  value at all; rotten boots were  supplied the soldiers who volunteered to fight for the Empire;  the tariff was increased, ostensibly for revenue purposes, but  really in the interests of the pro-  tectedjmanuf acturers; the British  preference, a thorn in the side  of the "interests", was attacked  and shorn of most of its value as  a stimulant to trade within the  Empire.  . The latest instance of  despicable graft   concerns  two  Ottawa men and is told by the  Free Press.     One of the mnn  bought a'hundred pairs of. binoculars at $22 a pair.    He offered  them to the militia department  for $44 a pair.   The department  considered the price too high and  refused to take them.

Give the hens plenty of  exercise and don't overfeed, particularly on meat foods and wet  mashes as this will unfavorably  affect the hatchability of the  eggs. If possible give sour milk  as drink.  Select for setting, eggs that  are well shaped and of ah even,  average size with a moderately  thick shell. Don't keep eggs  longer than two weeks for not  only may the germ be weakened  but stale eggs take longer to  hatch than fresh ones. Don't  set dirty eggs and be careful that  the nest never becomes fouled.  Keep eggs ior hatching at an  even low temperature (50 to 60  degrees) and store them with  large end up that air space may  retain its proper position and  that the germ may be properly  centred.

Light  breeds should commence laying  at five months, medium breeds  at six and heavy breeds at seven  or eight.  Set hens in half darkened,  quiet places where they will not  be bothered by layers. Mark nil  eggs set and don't overcrowd  hen with eggs, or eggs rolling  out on different days or being  half-warmed by hen will result  in an indifferent hatch.  Always move setting hens at  night and try out for a day in  the new nest on crockery eggs  before finally setting.   Set several hens at the same time and, if  possible, keep a setter in reserve.  Thus  one  hen   may   frequently  look after two clutches of chickens, and  the   second  setter  be  broken up and in case of trouble  with one of the setters, the spare  setter may be used to replace her.  MaJ<e nest on moist ground or  place six inches of moist earth  in bottom of box or nest.    You  will get bigger chicks and generally a better hatch.    Thoroughly  dust   her   with   Persian   insect  powder before setting and before  hatch comes off.   Keep dust bath  of road dust and wood ashes, or  lime, or sulphur, always accessible  for the hen.     Also keep  feed (preferably corn) and fresh  clean water where the hen may  get it and allow her if possible  to get   off   and   on   when   she  pleases.    If a number of hens  are set in the same room it may  be necessary to make individual  runs.  In hatching, to get a definite  number of pullets, figure on a  75 per cent, and the fact that  half of these will be cockerels and  again that one third of these will  die. This will give one pullet  from four eggs.  Don't feed chicks for at least  36 hours after hatching, or you  will likely have digestion and intestinal troubles. Feed soft feeds  as hard-boiled eggs, Johnny cake,  bread crumbs, etc., for two oi  three days, five times daily.  Give sour milk or buttermilk tc  drink and fresh clean water.  Feed chick feed two or three  times daily after this in addition  to a couple of soft feeds. Chick  feed contains sufficient grit for  the young chickens. Don't allow  hen to weary chickens by trailing  them long distances. She is best  placed in slat-fronted coop, at  least till chicks are strong enough  to follow her.  ���������pYNOPSiS OF COAL MINING  j REGULATIONS  '/"���������OAL MINING RIGHTS of the Dominion, in  ;V-* Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Albkkta,  the Yukon TuititiToriY, the Noktu-wks'J' Tekkx-  TOJtlES and in a portion of the I'KoVlNCi' of  British Coi.iimuia, may be leased for a term of  twenty-one yuars at un annual rental of $1 an  acre.

Bella  Coola  farmers are independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  HTHE 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.  OELLA 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.

The idea ought to have been  dissipated long ago that there is  any heaven-born party of people  fit to rule in Canrda, just as the  idea that any one party possessed  all the loyalty, has almost gone.  It is hard to get a Conservative  of the Tory type, however, to  believe that there is any good  outside of his own party, and he  will tolerate the worst things  and call them good when done  by that party.���������Stratford Beacon  o     o     o     o     o  Britain is financing us and we  reciprocate by penalizing her exports to Canada by an additional  duty of five per cent.
