RAINBOW  ���������  Rescues Gunb  oats  and   Returns to Esquimalt  Vancouver, Aug. 14.���������Grave anxiety regarding the  safety of the cruiser Rainbow gave place to great jubilation today when that ship arrived at Esquimalt having in escort the gunboat Shearwater. The gunboat  Algerine is expected to arrive any minute. This relieves the naval situation on this coast.  The Rainbow's trip south to the rescue of these two  vessels and the taking of them out of the very grasp  of the two powerful German cruisers Nurenburg and  Liepsig is regarded as a fine achievement. So confident were the Germans of the capture of the two gunboats that the-'captain of the cruiser Liepsig told a San  Francisco newspaper man that the capture would certainly be effected without any trouble.  The Rainbow, which a short time ago was dismantled  and laid up, has justified her existence and will henceforth stand high in the estimation of the people of the  Pacific Coast.  *  ���������  #  ually the German vessel drew  out of range of the Bristol's six-  inch bow gun, the latter being  loth to give up the fight confined the pursuit. Taking advantage of the darkness and with the  advantage of her greater speed,  the German cruiser doubled on  her course and made away south  towards San Juan.

It will be a very fine structure  when completed and all the members of this Association will have  good cause to be proud of it.  The membership of the Association is increasing very rapidly.  Recently when the secretary,  Mr. L. Bullock-Webster, was in  Telkwa, Aldermere and Smith-  ers, thirty-seven newr members  were enrolled. Over twenty  members have joined this week  on the Queen Charlotte Islands.  The management have arranged with Capt. T.

The above message was received from Ottawa by Mr. F. C.  Wade. It is Sir Wilfrid's reply  to the resolution passed at the  Liberal meeting recently held in  Vancouver, to make arrangements for the reception of the  Liberal leader on the occasion of  his proposed visit to the Pacific  Coast, which had been definitely  set for September 11.  As well as the flying there  will be many other attractions  well worth going to see. There  will be a splendid baseball match.  The final of the football league  will be played off.

Other outgoing passengers by  Sunday's steamer were, T. Sleigh  and J. Jackson.  The entertainment held a'.t the  Colony Hall, Hagensborgv on  Wednesday evening, under   the  auspices of the W.C.T.U. proved  successful in every respect. Not  only was the program of an extremely high order but the financial result was also satisfactory.  Mr. M. B. Christensen presided  over a large audience and opened  the proceedings with a few well  chosen words. Mrs. S. Le C.  Grant who was first on the program gave one of her cleverly  executed pianoforte solos. The  vocalists, Mesdames D. C. Balfour, B. F. Jacobsen; Misses A.  Gibson and Marjory Clayton.  During the evening pianoforte  selections were charmingly rendered by Miss Ellen Thorsen and  Mildred Gibson, which added  much to the general enjoyment.  What may be reasonably described as the feature of the  evening was the Silver Medal  Contest for local elocutionists.  All the contestants acquitted  themselves so .creditably that the  judges were set a difficult task  in deciding the winner. The  final decision, however, gave  general satisfaction when the  announcement was made that  Master 0. Petersen had won the  medal by a narrow margin of  points.  Mrs. Livingstone of Victoria,  presented the medal with a few  brief remarks on the success of  the evening's entertainment.  v.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 15, 1914.  Britain and Germany.  In keeping the pledge she gave  to Belgium,  Great Britain  has  been  true to her unblemished  fame, and now her tremendous  resources are joined with those  of the other. European powers in  resisting the ferocious policy of  Germany.  Throughout the whole  crisis her attitude was one of  pacification.'   She used her best  endeavors to bring about a peaceful settlement, and later to limit  the area of hostilities, but immediately Germany violated the  . neutrality of Belgium, which she  herself- had pledged to respect,  the sacred honor of Britain was  involved:    All Britain's protests  were treated  with indifference  until there , remained no other  course open to her but to intervene with all the force at her  command.    Even then she was  not the first to declare war, the  German   declaration   preceding  her's by four hours.  The situation which developed  with lightening-like suddenness  found Britain ready to the minute. Her great fleet had been  prepared for action for days and  the mobilization of her land  forces had been completed.  The state of preparedness affords proof that British statesmen accurately devined the crux  of the German policy, and were  not deluded by the peaceful protestations and fair speeches of  the Kaiser which was intended  to screen from view the menace  which was threatening the liberty of Europe.  For years past the German  Emperor has aspired to the role  of overlord of Europe. He harbored the delusion that only by  "blood and iron" could Germany  progress and ultimately predom-  ate in the sisterhood of nations.  Industrial advancement, the arts  and sciences, the progress of  government were sacrificed to  the development of an enormous  army and navy.  A glance at the war budgets  of the great powers in the last  decade shows clearly that the increase in Germany's outlay has  been out of ;ajl proportion to the  requirements of a policy of peace.  Between the years 1900 and 1905  while France slackened considerably in her warlike preparations,  Germany continued her's vigorously. 1904 to 1908 saw Russia  recovering   from   her   struggle |  with Japan; still Germany wrung  tribute from her overtaxed millions. Finally, deciding to challenge the supremacy of Great  Britain on the seas, she laid down  a plan of construction extending  to 1912 by which time it was intended that her fleet should be  such as "even the mightiest  naval power could not attack  witnout danger to itself."  The natural result of the mad  militancy was that the other  powers took alarm and huge expenditures on army and navy became the order; strangling industry and mortgaging the future  of the people.  The policy of Germany ..has  been a menace to human liberty  and progrees. It has created  antagonisms which it is unable  to subdue. It has raised all  Europe against the promoters of  that policy and it is reacting  with terrific effect.  By blood and iron did the imperial dynasty of Germany come  into being; by blood and iron  will it pass away.  o     o     o     o     o  Italy Is  Wise.  Italy has displayed common  sense. When asked from Berlin  as to what course she intended  to pursue, she has declared that  she will remain strictly neutral.  According to the terms of the  agreement between Germany.  Austria and herself, she is not  forced to take up arms unless  one of them is compelled to fight  in self-defence. In the present  case Austria is the aggressor, and  the conditions of the Triple Alliance, in the opinion of Italy, do  not call for participation of its  principals in a war of aggression.  Italy's announcement of strict  neutrality must seriously affect  the prospects of Austria and  Germany. Although the Italian  army sustained considerable losses in the recent war with Turkey and her financies are none  too good, yet by threatening  France from the south-east and  occupying the attention of the  British and French fleets in the  Mediterranean she would be of  incalculable assistance -to her  allies.: She could place in the  field an army of 1,200,000, while  her naval strength consists of  sixteen battleships, twenty cruis  ers and 33,000 men.  But while Italy loses nothing  by remaining neutral, she would  undoubtedly suffer if she joined  her partners in the present  struggle. First, there would be  a break in the friendly relations  which have so long prevailed  between her and Great Britain.  Her interests in the Mediterranean would be seriously threatened. She would probably lose  Tripoli, over which she recently  waged a costly war with Turkey,  and her other possessions1 in  Africa would be endangered.  Her fleet with, that of Austria  could not cope with the combined  British and French squadrons in  Mediterranean, and her ports  would be blockaded.   From every  standpoint, commonsense and  prudence prompt the strictest  neutrality on her part. Her  statesmen clearly have .not lost  their heads in the excitement.  o     o    o    o    o  As we anticipated, the 'Kaiser  has asked heaven to shower  blessings on his beloved army.  But we notice from official reports that when the beloved army  falls out of step or commits  what is considered a breach of  discipline some beloved 'officer of  the Kaiser-s beloved army generally bashes it over the beloved  head with his sabre.  o     a    o    o    o  The closeness of the censor on  news from the seat'of war is  shown in the following despatch  to the Daily Telegraph from Dr.  Dillon in Vienna.  Dr. Dillon says: "The days of  war correspondents are over.  The vicissitudes of the struggle  will be chronicled day by day by  the official analysts to the exclusion of all others. Newspaper  correspondents will be free to  work embroidery, provided the  patterns chosen are not disapproved."  o     o     o     o     o  Captain Give Phillipps-Wolley  asks through the morning paper  how many men there are in Canada who do not wish that "we  had those three ships in the  Peacemaker's fighting line."  How many men are there in Canada who do not wish that we had  those four Bristols and six torpedo boat destroyers contemplated by the plan abopted four  years ago?���������Victoria Times.  Better Take the Paper at Once.  An exchange gives the following account of what happend to  a family too stingy to take their  home paper.    It says:  "We once knew a man who  was too stingy, to take the newspaper in his home town, and  always went to borrow his neighbour's paper.  "One evening he sent his son  over to borrow the paper. While  the son was on the way he ran  into a large stand of bees, and  in a few minutes his face looked  like a summer squash.  "Hearing the agonized cries of  the soil, the father ran to his assistance, and in doing so ran into  a barb wire fence, cutting a  haridf u I of flesh from his anato-  may, and ruined a $4 (saleprice)  pair of trousers. '  "The old cow took advantage  of the hole in the fence, got into  \he corn field, and killed herself  eating green corn. Hearing the  racket, the stingy man's wife  ran out of the house; upsetting  a four gallon churn full of cream  into a basket full of kittens,  drowning the lot. She slipped  on the cream and fell down the  stairs, breaking her leg and a  $19 set of false teeth. The baby  left alone, crawled' through ,the  spilled cream into the parlor and  ruined a $40 carpet. During the  excitement the daughter eloped  with the hired man, taking the  family savings bank with them."  Great Wars of  History.  It is not anticipated that the  present general war will last as  long as the widely extended  struggles of the past. The development .of war material, the  telephone, telegraph, air service  and means of transport, all tend  to bring hostilities to a rapid  climax and conclusion.

However, some  very useful work has been accomplished. Various crops have  been raised and with the exception of the rather unfavorable  weather and attacks of caterpillars, everything responded fairly  well. The following crops are  being grown:  Grains���������hulless barley. This is  doing exceedingly well and is recommended for cultivation here.  Fodder crops���������alf alf a; grimm's  and variegated clovers; sanfoin  and vetches; field peas, etc. ;  buckwheat (Japanese) has done  well and should ripen here easily.  It should be sown in May for  best results.  Vegetables���������the usual variety  have responded well. They  thrive in the best possible way.  Roots���������turnips, mangolds and  sugar beets are making headway.  The latter two crops may be  raised most successfully. They  are splendid for dairy cattle.  On the alluvial soil growth is  tremendous. On the gravelly  portions the larger stones have  to be cleared away and manure,  etc., applied.  | During this season on the plots  the use and value of lime, manures and fertilizers have been  clearly demonstrated as follows:  Lime���������this is necessary in procuring best results from the  land. It is needed in all soils  except alkali and very gravelly  soils. On newly-cleared timber  or wet land it is invaluable.  Such land has usually acid or  sour tendencies and thus needs  "sweetening." Bacterial and  chemical action is brought about  by lime. A change takes place  in the soil compounds thus unlocking or rendering available  certain forms for plant food.  Lime applied half a ton to one  ton per. acre on local soil is sufficient for five years. Lightsoils  take the less amount.  Ground burnt limestone or  water-slacked lime give the best  results, Air-slacked is inferior,  half as valuable. The best form  of lime to buy is what is known  as builders' quick, caustic or  burnt limestone. This is sold  in barrels. Before using this  limestone, being lumpy, it must  be made fine, this may be done  by crushing or water-slacking.  The former is hard to do, so the  latter is usually resorted to, when  slacked the lime may be applied  at once. If lime is exposed too  long to the atmosphere it becomes air-slacked and the carbonate changed in its form and  is not so valuable for agricultu-  tural purposes.  Complete fertilizer��������� nitrates  (nitrogen), phosphates (phosphorus) and potash (potassium)  mixed in suitable quantities. The  best yields are being obtained  from this form.  Basic slag���������this gives to the  land phosphates and lime. On  river bottom soil this has given  every satisfaction, in fact this  cheap form of fertilizer,  with  These prove very useful for fruit  trees. Potatoes do better with  a dressing of muriate of potash.  The sulphate form is detrimental. Woodashes supply the best  form of potash. Farmers should  use all the woodashes possible  on the land. Every form of  vegetation needs potash to build  tissue and furnish yields, etc.  Barnyard manure���������in the test  plots along side the various fertilizers the old stand-by holds  its own. Manure gives to the  soil nearly all the necessary plant  food elements. It aids bacterial  and chemical action in the soil as  well as furnishing humus which  aids in conserving soil moisture.  The recent experiments show  that to obtain the most profits  from the soil good cultivation  and manuring are needed. When  plenty of barnyard manure is  available, except an occasional  lining, commercial fertilizers are  not much needed on Bella Coola  soils. Mixed farming should be  aimed at, thus enriching the  farm as time goes on. If commercial fertilizers are used, basic  slag should be applied to the  heavier soils, whilst complete  fertilizer and nitrate of soda be  given to light land.  Crops of the Valley.  The vegetables look  remarkably  well.      Grain   and  fodder  crops  are  quite good.       Small  fruits have yielded tremendously. Tree fruits as early maturing  apples, are bearing  splendidly,  in fact, fruit trees on the whole  are looking healthy and clean.  The    apples    doing    the    best  are yellow transparent, duchess,  wealthy, wagener, gravenstein,  blenheim orange.  Bella Coola valley is well  adapted for good agriculture and  will eventually reach the position  it deserves.  It is hoped that the farmers of  the district will make use of the  experimental plot in making frequent visits and talking with the  experimenter Mr. S. LeC. Grant,  as well as discuss such matters  with the assistant provincial  horticulturist A. H. Tomlinson,  when visiting the valley, or write  him direct at his office, Prince  Rupert.

Local fishermen are enjoying  a well earned rest prior to the  commencement of the cohoe  season which will commence in  local waters next week. The  Bella Coola Inlet is famous for  its plentiful Tun of cohoes. which  has never been known to fail.  This year special preparations  have been made for an extra  large pack of this fish and along  and successful season is anticipated. .  Mr. A. H. Tomlinson, provincial horticulturist, left here on  Saturday by gasoline launch after a visit of about ten days. Mr.  Tomlinson. in writing to the  Courier remarks that it is high  time arrangements were being  made to place an exhibit at Prince  Rupert Exibition worthy of this  valley. We look to our local  Farmers' Institute to take early  steps in this matter and leave no  stone unturned to do credit to  this place in this important  matter.  Orville and Frank Robinson  left town on Tuesday for Anaham  Lake where they have a contract  to put up two hundred and fifty  tons of hay for one of the stock-  ranchers of that neighborhood.  S.S. Capilano made a special  call at this port on Tuesday, taking on board a bunch of about  thirty cattle and some horses for  Takush Plarbor. The stock is  the property of Messrs. Ed. Oein  and A. C. Christensen, who in-  An interesting piece of information comes from a local reader  who has recently received a letter from a friend in ISfew York.  The letter' speaks of a certain  Mr. Egerton who has recently  returned to New York after a  visit to the Ojd Country. Mr.  Egerton, who is a nephew of  Admiral Egerton, learned while  at home that the Admiral had in  his possession a personal letter  from the late Captain Scott,  written after the completion of  his famous diary. . This letter is  evidently the last record of the  brave explorer, and is doubtless  greatly prized by its owner, the  late Capt.. Scott was at one time  engaged to be married to the  neice of Admiral Egerton.  Word has reached this office  from Mr. S.LeC. Grant of Ay-  toun Farm, that he has lately  received a letter from Prince  Rupert which states on authority  that arrangements are being  made for a Grand Trunk steamer  to take all local exhibits to Prince  Rupert on the occasion of the  forthcoming, exhibition. This  should greatly encourage our  local farmers and it is hoped  that Bella Coola Valley will be  represented by a large exhibit.  With the disadvantage of transshipment eliminated, Bella Coola  produce should arrive at Prince  Rupert in good condition and  undoubtedly meet with success.  Further announcement will be  made as to the exact date the  steamer will call at this port as  soon as arrangements are completed.  ���������rx<M%<nf><io <-������������->><"���������������������>-.<"���������������  QUtttrrij Nnttr?
