Schooner loads of some 30,000  fish have already been forwarded  to Alert Bay and Namu, and arrangements are being made to  charter a number of steam trawlers with a carrying capacity of  60,000 in order to distribute the  fish among the canneries where  the run of fish has been below  the average.  Northern  Canneries  Experience Poor Season  The sockeye run in the Northern waters has been far below  the average.    On the Skeena and  Naas Rivers the packs are only  half the.usual size, while Kimsquit, Rivers Inlet and Bella Coola  ihave also fared badly.    Smiths  (inlet and Alert Bay are the only  I exceptions,  the packs at these  1 places being a good average.  Cohoe Season Commences  Cohoe fishing has commenced  fat Bella Coola, present indica-  itions showing the likelihood of a  I fairly good run.  Diaz Postpones  Trip to Japan  Vancouver, Aug. 1..'}. Diaz has  deferred his trip to Japan as  special envoy from provisional  president Huerta of Mexico.  Diaz had booked passage by the  Empress of Russia, but this has  been cancelled, and it is his intention to travel eastward  through Canada in a few days  time.  The reason he gives for the 1  postponement of his trip is that j  he does not wish to force himself  on the Mikado's government.

Mistaken For Animal  Pioneer Is Shot Dead  Portland, August 10. ���������G. D.  Jones, a pioneer resident of South  Bend, Wash., was shot and killed  by E. D. Jennings, near the hitter's home here. According to  the story of Jennings, who is  under arrest, he was cutting  wood near his home when he  saw a movement in the underbrush nearby which he thought  was made by an animal. Going!  to the house he returned with a  rifle, he says, and after shouting  a warning fired.  Jones was hit twice by bullets  and died within a short time.  Nanaimo, Aug. 13. ���������A mob of  miners attacked the police at  Wellington, one special constable  being seriously injured when  strikers drove the officers back  to Nanaimo.  The coal city is in the hands of  a disorderly mob and twenty-five  additional constables have been  brought over from Victoria to  restore order.  Men who went to work were  met by the mob as they emerged  from the pit and were threatened  with violence.  .

The White Pass steamer Massitlin is back on the Yukon River  after loading eighty tons of provisions i'or the mouth of Donjek  River, ninety miles from Shushanna. From Donjek there is a  very good trail, or poling boats may be used to within fifteen  miles of the strike.  No direct news from Shushanna has been received for a week.

Seventeen Mexicans have paid with  their lives for maltreating the  daughters of Mathew Gourd, an  American farmer, near Tampico.  American farmers participated  in the exactation of the penalty.  Americans, joined by Mexican  landowners in the district of  Alascador, near Tampico, organized a posse, and rode into the  hills in search of the outlaws  that tied Gourd and robbed him,  and afterwards offered indignities to two daughters. The band  was located and defeated in a  fight, and several of its members  were captured.  The seventeen men killed by  the posse included those slain in j  the fighting and those put toi  death afterwards.  Governor Sulzer Impeached  Albany, N.Y., Aug. 14.���������Governor Sulzer was impeached by  the Democratic Assembly at a  quarter past five yesterday morning, after an all-night session.  It is claimed that he used campaign funds for personal purposes, thus violating the penal  laws of the state, not only in  connection with the filing of an  improper and incorrect account  of his campaign expenses and  diverting campaign contributions to the purchase of stocks,  but also by alleged efforts to  prevent witnesses from testifying before the Frawley investigation committee.  Lieutenant - Governor Martin  H. Glaynn has assumed office.

Islands Change Shape  Seattle, Aug. 14���������The revenue  cutter Unalfa, just arrived from  Alaska, brings the news that the  Bogolsof Islands, the funny freak  of theBehringSea, are once more  twisting into odd shapes and  masses. Every volcano, small'  and large, in Western Alaska and  the Aleutian Islands is giving off  smoke, steam or vapour according to,their various dispositions.  Mr. Foster Returning  Among those taking passage  for the south by the Beatrice  were Mr. and Mrs. H. Hewitt  and child, and the Misses D. and  F. Barker, all of whom have  spent several months in the Valley.   S.S. Venture docked here on  Sunday afternoon. Amongst her  passengers for this port were  Messrs Joe Moore and T. Blackburn, who evidently having  greatly enjoyed the trip seemed  very loth to break away from the  popular ship and her genial  skipper.  Among the outgoing passengers by the S.S. Venture were  Mr. William Goodwin and Miss  Violet Goodwin, Rev. T. C. Colwell and Mr. W. Lewin.  Ottawa, Aug. 14���������Hon. George  E. Foster, Minister of Trade and  Commerce, will return to Ottawa about September 1.

Lewin who arrived in  town last week from his ranch  on the lower reaches of the Salmon River, some 90 miles distant  from Bella Coola, is optimistic  regarding the future of that part  of the country.  After thoroughly prospecting  the country Mr. Lewin has purchased from the government a  large tract of land and intends  going into cattle ranching. Already he has stocked his ranch  with thirty head of young cattle  besides six head of horses.  Owing to prohibitive steamboat charges on live stock from  Vancouver to-Bella Coola Mr.  Lewin was forced to proceed to  his land by way of Ashcroft,  buying his cattle at the well  known Cotton ranch in Chilcotin.  Mr. Lewin speaks in glowing  terms of the Salmon River eoun-  Mr. W. W. Baer, field rranager  for the Liberal party in British  Columbia, who was billed to address the electors of Bella Coola  Valley on August 2, was unfortunately compelled.to postpone  his visit on account of an urgent  message from his headquarters  in Vancouver.  It is hoped, however, that Mr.  Baer will visit this place at an  early datc\ .  Mr. Percy Gadsden arrived in  town on Saturday last after a  sojourn of some five weeks in the  interior country.  Mr. Gadsden brought back with  him several specimens of ore  which show that this last trip  was taken for another purpose  altogether than that of bettering  his health.  Local sportsmen are extremely  busy with road and line.  A party of foip' enthusiasts  paid a visit to one of the adjacent trout streams on Monday  afternoon, returning in the  course of a few hours with between' forty and fifty fine trout.  They claim that they were only  fishing for sport and had it been  fish they were after they would  probably have brought back a  few.   Mr. J. Petrie passed through  here on Tuesday last on his way  to the interior.  We read with surprise that it  is not customary with the Department of Public Works to  erect guard-rails on the approaches to wharves in such localities as Bella Coola.  We trust that the person responsible for the erection of the  rail on the three-quarters of a  mile of approach to our wharf,  (which could serve no useful  purpose except the safeguarding  of human lives,) will not receive  too severe a censure for this  wanton extravagance.  Captain O'Connor, formerly  chief officer of the S.S. Venture,  visited this port on Tuesday last  with the tug Bertha D, belonging to the Draney Fisheries,  Limited.   Roy Mosher of  Atnarko  has,  try which he says is eminently , been spending the last week in  adapted to stock-raising.    Leav-itown.

Baer,- field manager  of the Liberal party in British  Columbia,   who   has   lately returned to Vancouver after ah extended tour   of   the   Northern  portion of the province, during  which  he -visited nearly every  settlement in   the upper coast  country and on Queen Charlotte  Islands,   states that* he   found  everywhere an unrest among the  settlers who had taken up land.  No one was sure of being allowed by the government to remain in unmolested possession of  their holdings, and for this reason  many where moving out to places  where there is some security for  property rights.  Mr. Baer was informed that on  Graham Island alone there were  two hundred cases where pre-  emptors, after having improved  their land, had been notified by  the department that other persons ��������� presumably individuals  who stood well with the authorities at Victoria���������had prior claims  to the lands on which these settlers had located.  While"suggesting that this  might be an exaggeration, Mr.  Baer was convinced that there  were on Graham Island at least  fifty bona-fide instances of this  kind; but were there only a dozen  such cases, the government  would be equally blameworthy,  equally unfit to have control of  a great department upon whose  efficient and honest administration the future prosperity of the  province so largely depends.  O      O      O      C      0  '  But Graham Island is only a  small part of the northern country where the settler is treated  by the government as if he was  a pariah to be hounded out of  the country.  In the fertilo Bulkley Valley,  so much of the best land is held  by speculators who ask altogether  prohibitive prices, that the man  who takes up a pre-emption must  be content to live the life of a  hermit, cut off from his neighbor, deprived of a school for his  children, lacking a market for  his produce and without roads to  reach it even if there were a  market within reasonable distance.  o     o     o     o     o  But why travel to Graham Island or Bulkley Valley.    Here in  Bella Coola a large portion of the j  best agricultural land has been |  [held for years and.is still held  under pulp leases by the Ocean  Falls Company, who have closed  down their works and may never  operate again, and this, in spite  of the pledge of Attorney-General  Bowser spoken at Bella Coola in  the presence of Provincial Secretary, Hon. IT. E. Young,, that if  the Ocean Falls Company were  not operating their pulp mill by  a certain date that their leases  would become null and void and  that the land covered by them  would be open for settlement. ,  The Ocean Falls Company had  not their mill completed until  some five years after the date  specified, by Mr. Bowser, yet the  applications for pre-emption records of numerous parties were  returned by the Lands Department and presumably the pulp  leases were renewed. Only another broken pledge.  Here is a gem:  A few months ago a man well  known in Bella Coola Valley  wrote expressing his desire to  relinquish his pre-emption forj  which he had- held a record. for  several yea'rs. As soon as his  re 1 inquishment' -had been  granted by the Lands Depart-  ment.another party immediately  made application for a pre-emp-s;)  tion record of the same land, to  be told in the course of .a mail or  two that a record could not be  granted him as the land applied  for was covered by perpetual  timber lease'No. so and so.  ��������� The first man had paid his fee  of $2 and been granted his record which he had held for several years, and the department  did not hesitate to accept '������������������-his $2  relinquishment fee, for granting  him a relinquishment of a piece  of property which according to  its own statement the man never  had a right to.  This man had-even been to the  expense of having the land surveyed, and the survey was accepted by the government in  spite of the fact that the land  had been previously alienated as  a timber lease.  So much for the work of the  Lands Department.  The great are only great because we are on our knees; let us  riseup.���������Proudhon.  Unbusinesslike  It is a fact too obvious to be  questioned that the future prosperity of Bella Qoola depends  greatly on the .settlement and  development of the vast hinterland which has its natural access  to the coast by way of this place,  Inland from here lie thousands  of acres of the best agricultural  land in central British Columbia,  which only await transportation  facilities to afford homes for  hundreds of settlers."  By encouraging settlement in  this country, which is naturally  tributary to Bella Coola, we are  ensuring bur own prosperity to  ;no small degree, ,and anything  that goes towards retarding the  settlement of that country is  against our interests and therefore ought to be com batted.  ��������� ���������. ./ "  Bella Coola Valley affords the  natural route into the fertile  Salmon River country, where  Mr. W. Lewin, a stock man of  many years experience, has lo-'  cated his new cattle-ranch, and  it is up to us to see that we get  the benefit of the traffic into and  out from this country.      ,  Owing to the prohibitive rates  quoted by the steamship companies operating steamers between Vancouver and this port,  Mr. W. Lewin was forced to take  the long and tedious route by  way of Ashcroft and Chilcotin,  purchasing his cattle in the latter district and driving them  several hundreds of miles over  the trails before reaching his  ranch.  The rate quoted by the steamship companies on horses and  cattle from Vancouver to Bella  Coola was $17.50 per head, which  occasioned Mr. Lewin to abandon  the idea of purchasing his cattle  probably in the Fraser River district and travelling to his ranch  by the shortest and best route  that our Valley naturally affords.  This appears to be poor business on the part of the steamship companies. Possibly they  do not realize what the settlement of this near hinterland  means to Bella Coola and consequently to themselves. If they  are .at all desirous of increasing  their business with this port,  they must revise their rates on  live stock   and   encourage   the I  settlement of the interior country  by way of Bella Coola Valley.  o    o    o     o     o  Last year the rate on horses  from Vancouver to Bella Coola  was $8 per head, this year it is  $17.50 per head.    Why?  Mr. S. Le C. Grant, president  of the local Conservative Association, was lately heard to say  that the time had arrived when  Bella Coola demanded recognition.   :  o     o     o     o     o  Quite so. That is exactly what  the Liberal party have been saying for years past.  o     o     o     o     o   ,  But is not Bella Coola being  recognized?  O      O" .O       O      p.  Did not Mr. Clements recognize this place as, being worth a  short visit'on aSuhday evening?  o    o     o     o     o  And did he not eventually  agree to meet the people in the  early morning of Monday when  very few could attend?  'O      o      o    . o      o'~ ���������"���������'"���������"������������������'  Did he. not show the importance of his visit by using a government vessel?  O       O       O       O       C ������������������������������������'  Is not that recognition enough ?  c    o   . o     o     o  .  If not, then get a representative who lives in the district, and  whose livelihood does not depend  on the high price of real estate  in Vancouver.  ��������� O      O      O       O      O   '  Two years ago Sir Richard declared north and south railway  routes wereanathema. He said  that Canada should raise the  tariff against the United States  '' higher than ever." (Loud  cheers.) Now he is agitating  for an international railway from  Alaska to Mexico. Wonder if  that LL.D. from the University  of California is accountable for  his change of front.  o    o     o     o     o  Mr. Borden does not want an  election���������that goes without saying. He knows too well what  he has to expect from it. But  delay is far from likely to make  matters better for him. The  spectre of hard times is already  before him. Therefore, an early  election is to be looked for. And  when it comes it will be sprung  without an hour's warning.

Are they not the men who lay  ^the foundation on which is built  towns and cities ?   and yet, do  they always get the support of  |the  community  to   the   extent  Ithey deserve?  1 How many people after studying the various attractive catalogues sent out by the numerous  Eastern mercantile houses, prefer to send their  money away  From home for goods that frequently are found on arrival to  )e entirely unsuitable?
