Mr. Sylvester is the manager of  the cannery of many years standing, while Mr. Swenson and Mr.  Natzill will go there to do what  Mr. Sylvester tells them, and no  doubt the relations between these  gentlemen will continue agreeable throughout the season  as their qualifications for  their "respective positions  are acknowledged to be of  the best.

Brynildsen, a brother  of our popular merchant B.  Brynildsen, after sojurning  in the valley for the winter  left last week for the hot  springs"^ownihe inlet. His  health has been rather precarious for some time and it  is hoped that a treatment  at the springs will prove  beneficial.  ence some six years ago. A large  saw mill, pulp mill, and a three  hundred room hotel was built  along with other buildings of all  kinds to suit the needs of the  undertaking. Financial difficulties overtook the concern,and it  went into the hands of a receiver.  After lying idle for three years  reorganixation has taken place  with the result that one of the  'largest pulp mills en the Pacific  Coast will be in operation within  the year.          '  Ivan Estensen and William  Gorden came in last week from  Talleo on a launch. They have  spent the winter at the cattle  ranch situated at the head of  South Bentink Arm. Mr. Esten-  son has severed his connection  with the ranch and intends shortly to make a trip to Minnesota.  But the coast, despite his experience of its worst winter on record, has proved itself superior  in a number of respects to decide Mr. Estenson to take up his  residence here.  William Gorden will remain in  chafge of the operations usually  performed in the kitchen at the  ranch and also run the motor  boat.  As an outcomeof petition?  sent to the Dominion Department of Marine and  Fisheries, five additional  independent fishing licenses  have been granted for this  district.  This week has seen substantial improvements carried out at the Johnson saw7  mill. The amount of power  has been doubled by the installation of an additional  boiler and now we can boast  of a saw mill with two smoke  stacks. It is confidently expected that lumber will  hereafter be turned out in  an incessant flow.  Andy Wood and Thomas  Bernard was up from Ocean  Falls, Tuesday, and informed us that things are humming about the big plant.  A New Town.  About two hundred men are  now at work in connection  with the big mills at Ocean  Falls.

That 39 young men  have gone forth from this valley  to the war and that comparatively large amounts of money have  been raised for various war purposes here, bear testimony to the  fact that, our people take an active and patriotic interest in the  issues raised by the gigantic conflict. And the attendance at this  meeting is another proof in that  direction.  Dr. W. J. Quinlan was elected  to fill the position of chairman  of the meeting and Mr. I Fougner  was elected secretary. Dr. Quinlan gave evidence of his wide  experience as a presiding officer  in the able manner in which he  guided the proceedings. It was  decided that the committee to  be elected should consist of five  members and that it should collect funds for both the Red Cross  and Patriotic Societies. If the  committee should find it necessary to add to its number it was  by motion authorized to do so.  There did not appear to be any  strife as to who should have'the  honor to serve their country upon this committee. According  to the secretary's report the following officers were elected by  acclamation:  President, Mrs. E. C. Clayton;  1st vice-president, Dr. W. J.  Quinlan; 2nd vice-presidert, F.  Broughton; secretary, Dr. Mrs.  E. M. Sutherland; treasurer, Mrs.  I. Fougner.

It is true the government has  cut down  the expenditures on  several items, but it has found  it necessary to increase them.on  others, and one of those thus in-  creased'is salaries*.    The government officials do not propose to  allow  the hard' times  to affect  them.    Their income must not  decrease even though so many  must leave the province because  they cannot make a- living here.  -GiiiLtS'itns  4 IGLE^NS - DISINFECTS  ���������'TTiiifiiBOMirnTi trnr" -������������������������������'������������������������������  To Correspondents��������� While unobjectionable nn-  onymous^comolunications will be published, the  name and address of every writer of such letters  must be given io.the editor.

The Outlook for British  Columbia:  , _, ~.Vlt\-.wa's indeed a'sad day-for  ���������this province when- the-late Hon.  . "Robt. G." Tatlow, minister- of  finance,' resigned because he did  not approve-of the government pjrej i  guaranteeing the bonds of a rail-  .   way paralleling another.   During  ��������� ' the time -that he handled the  finances there was always a.surplus at the end of the fiscal year.  But ever since he took his departure, a different state "of-affairs has prevailed, the deficit's  have been equally constant ever  since, and now have reached a  ��������� sum of over $23,000,000..' While  the population*, according to .th������  '.. government's bwn'report has-de-  creased one hundred'-thousand in-  .the-last .three years,  the debt  keeps pilihgup'steadily until now  it amounts to more than $70 for  .. every man', woman and child in  the province,  including white,  red, yellow, and every other color.  The-estimatesforthe incoming  . year were   brought   down  last  week and showed that the government thought it necessary to  increase the expenditures for the  year instead pf reducing them;  it showed  that the revenue is  falling off and that, as a consequence, this province would run  in p!ebt another $5,300,000 this  year.     This means that every  day, counting the Sundays, we  will spend nearly $15,000 Jmore  than our income.    On the top of  this enormous deficit,  which  is  larger than': the entire expenditures of any of the other provinces except Ontario and Quebec,  there are   railroad  guarantees  which must be paid this year,  and of course the money to meet  these, amounting to more than  $600,000, must also be borrowed.  It is also planned to borrow $1,-  000,000 to loan to the farmers.  Taken altogether to cover the  .deficits-of- this year and the one  just ended will make it necessary  for the government/to borrow,  another $15,000,000.   .  s    This state of affairs will eventually drive capital away from the  province and ruin our industries,  because the interest on the great  debt, together with the running  expenses, will make the expenditures of the province so large  that the taxes to meet them will  be too burdensome for manufacturers to bear and at the same  time  be able to compete with  those,  in   this   respect,   more  favorably situated in other provinces.  The vice-president of the Canadian "Pacific Railway has paid a  visit to the coast.    He says there  is such a scarcity of laborers in  the Dominion that it will be necessary to invite labor from the  United States, and he told how  the C. P. R. is trying to meet the  situation  by reducing" its rates.  Therejs no such scarcity, however, in our ably governed province.     When the above statement was made, by the C. P. R.  official, the first question asked  him in Vancouver was if these  reduced   rates.��������� .would   apply'.to  those of British Columbia who  "were in search of labor, and' he  said yes.    And this is tharichest  province in Canada and the Em-  Political Mudslingers:    ;  .The    Conservatives- - when  brouglit"to -bay, in being unable  to reply, to the serious^ charges  made against them, complain of  their opponents having recourse  to mudslinging.   .When this aspect of the p'olictical  situation  firsjt impressed itself upon our  mind was; at the time when .the,  Roblin- government in-Manitoba,  went down* into the darkness of  disgrace/ 'The'Conservatives in  that province out of revenge and  without cause, made some accusa-  tions against leading men jn,the  Liberal party in order to annoy  and if possible to make some of  the mud stick.    A commission to  investigate the charges was set  to work;.-but after a thorough  search reported' that there was  no foundation for the accusations  made.      Some time  before the  Manitoba trouble became acute,  preparations  were   made   by a  leading Conservative in Dominion politics to discredit the Liberal government and legislature of  Saskatchewan with the object of  bringing   about   their defeat.  There was' nothing in sight to  start any scandal about so it be-  came..necessary in order to accomplish their nefarious design  to manufacture trouble.  If there is any corruption to be  brought about in politics it will  usually be found that the liquor  traffic can be depended to know  how and also to be willing to accomplish it.    So this Conservative in- the interest of his party  told the liquor dealers there was  a mint of money under his control for the purpose of corrupting  the legislature and government  of that province. ^At this time  there was a prohibition measure  before the legislature, and this  was,seized upon by the liquor interests as the object of   their  assault.  U'rTnie-.to,their nature they went  to..work;- with ' their' weil  filled  purses.to bribe .the-government  and members.    That they failed  in the attempt is1 proven -by the  fact that th'eprohibition measure  ^yas passed arid is now "the Jaw  oltJie:province..'. -But the af ter-  matV is'-'still" with us.- A commission composed of judges of  the province is investigating the  charges of corruption made by  the opponents   of   the .Liberal  government. .The.government  has been ex^n^rated,,but some  of thememB'ers'otthe legislature  are still under fire.   -It is safe to  say, .however, that even if some,  ���������members of the-,party should  have proven too-weak to resist  izing that such an attempt would  recoil upon their own heads with  a vengeance.  Let there be no more mud-  slinging, but honest efforts by  patriotic members of all political  parties to restore the prosperity  of the province and use our  means for the successful prose  cution of the war.  One of the results accomplished  in the long term of office enjoyed  by our government is a method  they have invented and  which  they ought to get copyrighted in  Order to collect a royalty from  ���������  others who profit by their example, of being able to enrich  themselves' arid .their   faithful  servants from the public treasury  without running counter-to the  law against graft.  The new method is to call the  I money appropriated for their  private use, commissions and  gratuities for extra services,- and  salaries; For one member of  the legislature to draw over $50  per/dayiand -mileage, causes, no  blush"on the cheeky of.-tHapat-  riots at the head of our government.,^ He earns it;.he is entitled  to, it, is  what"! they   maintain.

The coast of British Columbia  is broken; there are peculiar and  &nd deep indentations in its outline.    Also, from the Forty-ninth  Parallel,to the Alaskan boundary,  there is  an   almost continuous,  wavering fringe of islands.   Indeed, a glance on a small scale  map between Vancouver Island  and the mainland, sets the uninitiated   wondering if  there is  water enough to float a row boat  in.    Some of these islands are  just uncompromising, rocks covered  with   marine   life,   whilst  others,    though,  infinitesimally  small, havea trimming, as it were  (after the manner of feathers in  a lady's hat) of evergreen, stunted growthof cedar, spruce and  pine; others, again, are of considerable extent and the  home  and hope of a sprinkling of hardy  settlers.   In and out of this island  .fringe and between it and the  mainland shore is a maze of salt  water channels wherein the speed  of the tidal currents is a thing  to marvel at; where rips and eddies and overfalls make sport of  the  drifting  flotsam.    Many of  the latter channelsor "narrows"  is they are  sometimes known,  fairly   bristle   with   reefs;   yet  many are  navigable,  and  some  are excellent waterways���������literal  ocean lanes.  But breaking into the bold coast  itself is a succession of sounds  and inlets���������inland seas having  their own complement of islands  large and small; so that, altogether, it is difficult, cursorily,  to tell if one is on an island, an  isthmus or a peninsula. These  inlets were formed in the long  ago glaciers; tremendous rivers  of snow, allies of the stormy  Pacific, cutting deep channels  through the rock to aid the invading forces of the ocean; they  ���������are surviving and imperishable  3vidences of an ancient epoch.  And such waters, as I have explained, are common to the coast.  Their depths are frequently enormous, for the high, inclosing  mountains sometimes rise sheer  from the tide lines, In winter  they are wrapt in silence and  snow ���������never, never places where  the deer, the  wolf, the panther  ��������� 600 dealers and trappers of B.

Bella  Coola   farmers are independent-,  they are strangers to hard times.  '"THE REASONS for this enviable condi-  * tion of affairs are obvious to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  Theiand 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 faim. produce from Bella Coola Valley carried'.away  over twenty first prizes.

Howbeit, the advent of summer  witnesses a change and the activity of a great industry; the  surface then is dotted with the  small craft of the fishermen, and  alive with myriads of leaping  fish.
