All the people of Bella Coola  mourn the loss of Dr. Bavis who,  during his residence as a physician, has won the esteem of all  with whom he came in contact  both as a man and a doctor.

What the Speculator Missed  Victoria, Aug. 20. Cruisers  lately returned from an examination of the valleys of the 10!k.  Salmon, White and Gold Rivers  on Vancouver Island, came across  one hundred thousand acres ol  unalienated crown timber, with  an average stand of fifteen thousand feet to tin-acre, r. presenting a total of one and a half  billion feet. This timber is readily accessible, in fact the grades  which exist in these valleys render it possible to bring Irgs across  the island frt-in NYotka to Salmon River, crossing the surveys  of the Canadian Pacific and I'an-  adian Northern railways.

Smaby and Williams of  Ocean Falls were in last, week in  quest of medical aid for Mr. Williams child who was sick. Dr.  Bavis went with them.;  On Thursday evening of last  week Mr. and Mrs. Macdonald  of the Bella Coola Hotel, entertained the younger element of  the population. The editor being  hebarred by age from being  presentisnevertheless convinced  that the occasion was highly enjoyed by all who had the privilege of being present.  . Mr. Jennings, road superintendent, and Mr. Bell, engineer  of public works in the district,  made a few days call this week.  They came on a private launch  from Namu and left after inspecting some works under contemplation.  Rev. T. C. Colwell has also returned to his flock after a series  of successful meetings held at  Kimsquit, Namu and several  points on Rivers Inlet.  Mr. B. F. Jacobsen and party-  have spent a week camping at  the head of South Bentink Arm.  On the return voyage they stopped at the Hot Springs where  they were inflicted by the beneficial effects of the warm mineral  baths. They enjoyed it so much  that they may make another  visit to the same places before  cold weather sets in.  weather proved perfect and the  people of the valley poured into  Fosbak's grounds in a long.procession of loaded wagons. The  program was of the usual character: Singing by the audience and  by the pupils of the Sunday  school, and speeches by the pastor and some others. The program even though of the usual  kind was listened to attenti\ely  by everbody present.  In th^evening the Hagensborg  church was well filled; and the  young people deserve credit for  the interestingprogram provided.  Hjalmar Schulstad presided and  in a few well chosen words welcomed the minister and his wife  back to their people and voiced  the pleasure of all to see them  back and expressed the hope it  would be a long time before they  would go away again, even for a  vacation. Rev. Mr. Sageng was  called on for a speech to which  he responded by giving an outline of his trip to the annual conference of his church and visit  to the Panama Exposition at San  Francisco. Mr. Carlson gave  the missionary speech and the  string band, together with Miss  Ruth Nordschow, furnished the  music. The meeting lasted for  two hours and seemed to be enjoyed by all.  After a few days Mr. and Mrs.  Sageng will be "at home" to  their many friends at the parsonage.  RIGHT ROYALLY RECEIVED.  Rev. H.

Vancouver Office - - 317-323 Cambie St.  '^almrjinpult mtunmta rut lev."  -SATURDAY,  AUG. 21, 1915.  A  Changed Front.  .Th*  Conservative press very  ������ virtuously   maintains   how   unseemly it is to discuss politics at  the present time; and how wicked  . the~Liberals are who insist that  such is necessary just before an  .election. " It is not so very long  ago that it was exactly the other  way about.     The  Conservative  press and some of the leaders of  the,party were insistent in their-  demands for, a Dominion election,  and the Liberals just as insistently opposed it.    To a person  not conversant with  the facts  this seems a..curious state of affairs.    A ' ,  ,  The Conservatives desired an  election  at Ithat   time   because  , they considered tney had an issue  to which there was no opposition  and .they   felt   confident   they  would sweep   the  country and  secure another lease of power  for a long term.    The Liberals  opposed the plan, to some extent  because they felt that the Conservatives  had  strong grounds  for their belief in victory,  but  they had  their effective argument against it in the fact their  was no need of an election, whatever, because -the government's  term was not near expiring and  there was no issue.    The governor-general and the premier were  of the same mind, and so the  plan fell to the ground and the  Conservative press was obliged  to face arotind.  The position is just the other  way in relation to provincial affairs. The government's term  of office is aoout to expire; there  is wide dissatisfaction with the  administration, and from our  point of view it looks as if the  government will be defeated1 at  the next election.  If issues of any consequence  exist they must be discussed  when an election is pending, in  order that the voters can act intelligently. There are such issues  in abundance at present, and  therefore we believe their discussion cannot be avoided.  But we venture the suggestion  that the Conservatives are not  quite so eager for a provincial  election as they a very short  time ago were for a Dominion  one, because they are not quite  so sure of victory in this case,  hence-the strong opposition to  discussion of provincial politics.  We do not think that trying to  Is It Selfishness or  Obtuseness?  Tn the efforts being made here  to raise sufficient money to buy  one machine gun, the committee  entrusted to solicit subscriptions  for this purpose meet with men  of   intelligence   and  who   have  a  comparatively   good   income,  but  who  refuse to aid' in   this  movement which at present is  stirring Canada from the Pacific  to the Atlantic.    Nearly every  small community and village in  the Dominion vie with the cities  in doing what they can to enable  the soldiers at the front to resist  and to make attacks successfully.  Such men,  who refuse to come  forward at the country's supreme  need, do not advance any adequate excuse  worthy - of a rejoinder for their attitude.    We  have come to the conclusion that  it'is.not based on their lack of  patriotism, ability or intelligence,  butratherin supreme selfishness  or inability to grasp the seriousness of the country's position or  its great need.    Such men should  read the interview with Rev. C.  W. Gordon, D. D., published"���������  our last.issue,   or the   great  speech of Mr. N. W. Rowell of  Toronto, delivered at Vancouver  July 30, in which among other  stirring things he said:  "We realize we have not contributed   yet' in   proportion   tp  Great' Britain, which has raised  an army of more than 3,000,000  men.    If in   France,  Germany,'  Austria and Italy every man of  physical fitness is with the colors,  why^not in Canada? . . .  .   ' 'If we live in the land and enjoy freedom and we fail to respond, we prove by that act unworthy of free citizenship. Every  man who is able and who' does  not offer his services proves himself unworthy:*"  In this call to contribute towards the gun fund we are not  asked to join the colors, to. risk  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES  our time, health, limb and life  for our country, but only to give  a sum of money, so trivial that  almost everybody can spare it  by a slight sacrifice. But some  people, have not reached the point  yet when they are willing to  make sacrifices themselves. May  the'time never come when we  shall be compelled to make sacrifices greater than we are asked  to offer today.'  A Hatchery Is, Needed.  We are glad to note that the  local   Conservative   club   at its  meeting held last Monday at the  Mackenzie school,  did  take up  the question of having the Dominion government erect a hatchery on the head waters of the  Bella Coola River.    It was stated  that the matter had  been  discussed   with   the   inspector   of  fisheries Mr. J. T. Williams, who  had expressed his opinion that  if proper steps  were  taken <to  bring the matter before the government a hatchery .would   be  secured for our place.  The Conservative candidate for  member of the House of Commons had also, been approached;  but he being without experience  in such matters could hold out  no hopes   for   such   enterprise  during these hard times.    Such  arguments are somewhat in line  with that of a farmer who on account of the times says he cannot afford to spare seed to plant  his fields.    Our resources must  be conserved under any and all  circumstances.    The goose that  lays the golden egg should neither  The following are the facts  which he gave in support of this  statement:  In the year 1905, the cannery,  using sixty nets, canned 10,000  cases of sockeye; in 1910, with  seventy nets, 10,960 cases; and  in 1915, with seventy nets, 4,900  cases. He also points out that  the decrease in che catch of the  last year is even greater than  apparent. While in th.e first two  seasons mentioned, part of the  fishermen were less industrious  and stayed on shore a great part  of the time, in the last year every  man kept fishing steadily night  and day during the open season.  And that the fish has not  escaped the nets and gone up the  river, is testified to by the settlers who claim that they have  never seen so small a number of  sock eyes in the river since their  arrival in the valley twenty-one.  years ago. The above facts seem  to be conclusive evidence that  the fish is decreasing in numbers,  and it is the duty of the people  to [call the government's attention to this state of affairs that  the proper remedies may be ap;-  plied to prevent this loss to our  population.  o     o     o     o     o  Depleting the Fisheries.  It is-not only in Bella Coola  and vicinity that the fisheries are  depleted. The Committee of  Conservation appointed by the  Dominion government in its an-  nual report makes some serious  statements as to-the injury that  is being done to our great national fishing grounds by unwise and  uneconomic methods of fishing  and by disregarding^he necessity  of restocking.  In Lake Superior the average  yearly catch twenty years ago  was nearly three times as great  as now. The falling off began  to be first felt in 1893. In Lake  Ontario the average catch now  is about one-half of- what it was  a score of years ago. Lake Superior does not produce half as  many white fish as it did twenty  five years ago, and Lake Huron  and Georgian Bay only about a  third as many.

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.  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 canicd 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  Best Known and   Popular  Lubricant for  Motor Boats  Its use assures freedom from Carbon deposit  on valves, spark plugs, or in cylinders  IMPERIAL OIL CO.

Silos Mean More Milk-Continued.  testimonies of hundreds of farmers indicate, that a silo will pay  for itself in three years.    We are  certain that a silo is most economical in storing feed, as about  400 cubic feet of mow room is required to store one1 ton of hay,  whereas one-eight of that space  or 50 cubic feet is required to  store one ton of silage in the silo,  and in one cubic foot of silage  there are twice as many pounds  of digestible nutrients as in one  cubic foot of hay from the haymow.  A silo means more milk to sell.  The farmer Can have som"e silage  to feed during the drouth in late  summer,  which  will enable his  cows to. produce- from 20 to 40  pounds more butter fat during  one or two critical months. This  will mean from 50 to 100 pounds  more in a year.    Farmers should  remember that when cows once  drop in milk production during  any part of their lactation period  th.ey cannot regain the flow.  It is important that owners of  illos -should  bear" in mind  that  when ,the silo is first opened only  a small feed should be given, as  in changing from grass or .dry-'  feed "to silage, if a regular full  feeel is given, the silage will per-  hapssliphtly-affect the'milk for  a few milkings, and if the change  is from dry feed it may cause too  great an activity of the bowels.  Serious Accident  at Hagensborg  An accident with nearly fatal  consequences happened on the  11th. inst. to Mr. Frank Hagan  of Hagensborg.  In the early morning of that  day he, in company with Hans  Knutson, went into the mountains-near his home in the Sal-  lomt valley to hunt.    About 4  o'clock in the afternoon after an  unsuccessful   trip   Mr. ,Hagan  stopped to drink from a stream.  In bending over his revolver fell  out of the holster and struck a  stone with the resultthat a shot  went off, the bullet entering his  left side just below the ribs.   It  went through his body'and came  out in front.  Hagan's companion  examined the  wound   and   did  what he could for the sufferer  and then left him.to get a relief  party to carry him out. -Although  all speed  was usedvthe  party  did not-reach the wounded man  until about seven   hours  later.  He  was  removed  to  his,.home  where'medical attention awaited.  It was found that ho vital portion  had been struck and it is expected that if no complications set  in Ke will recover.  ���������'   The Great Picnic Party.

The Courier  1 a Year  delightful time at the springs and  vicinity., -The trip .had done  members of the party a lot-of  good, which fact was proven by  their jubilant spirit and refreshed appearance.  The party  was  composed of  Torwald, Jacobsen, who was the  captain^ ably assisted by his first  mate,-Miss Susie   Christensen;  Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Wheeler took  the role of chaperones;     Olaf  Fosback, Olai Urseth, Theo. Livelton and Ingvold Olsen,  who  had to do all the hard work; The  Misses   Clara   Widsten,   Mattie  Peterson and  Gertie  Fredland,  who did the cooking. .As they  all expected to appear to advantage and they were unwilling to  have this fact go unnoticed by  thejr many friends who were unable to join the party; they secured  the services  of   Mr:   B.  Norton  the photographer, who  went with them.  As the party landed in safety,  without getting their feet wet,  at the destination it was met and  welcomed by John Nelson and  his brother. Their appetites being appeased by the joint efforts  of all concerned, they all went  for a-visit to the beautiful falls  and other scenic places. The  photographer secured on this trip  some of the finest views of his  collection.  In giving an account of the trip  to the falls it nju'st not be forgotten that a tree was found that  rivals in size t'he celebrated big  trees of California.    It was estimated to be twenty feet in diameter; twelve of the party stood  in line on the stump to testify  to its   size   and   any   sceptical  Thomasses may get their lingering doubts cleared away by procuring one of Norton's photos of  the   stump   and   the   veracious  party.    Sad to relate"the return  trip put a damper on the spirits  of the explorers, as they got wet  to the skin through the.dashing  of the "waves;  but the gallant  captain  and  the  efficient mate  brought them  safely tp camp,  withits warmth and food.  ���������Next day   Mrs.. Wood's   and  Mrs. Covey's larders  were explored   and   .depleted-   to   the  mutual  satisfaction of all concerned.   The entertainers availed  themselves-of,, the means given,  by the hungry visitors to send  their love to   friends  in   Bella  Coola and elsewhere.    The best  of times must, have an end and  very reluctantly the party left  the hospitable people,and shores  of the South Bentink Arm.    Aji-  | other party  with   appetites as  healthy as the departing one had  displayed arrived to fill the vacancy created at the springs, as  B. F.
