The insurgents added that  if the warships fired at them,  they would spare neither the  European nor any other inhabitant of the city.   .

The three had been permitted  to enter the kitchen about five  o'clock for dinner. It was not  long after that one of the officers  passing through noticed that all  three were missing. The window-  in Campbell's cell had been forced  open and the bars cut. This  window is near the ceiling and  it opens into a section of the  city hall, where access to the  street is simple.  Ottawa, July 29.���������It is understood that Sir Wilfrid Laurier  will open his Western tour on  the Pacific coast most likely in  Vancouver on September 11th.  He will come West speaking but  once in each of the three prairie  provinces as well as British Columbia. The plan of the Liberal  leader is not to hold a series of  meetings, but to have one monster demonstration in each province. Previous to going West  the Opposition leader will leave  about the middle of August for  the Maritime Provinces where  there will again be a big demonstration in each province.  Col.

The season so far has been a  good one for both the cannery  and the fisherman.  Mr. A. Schilling of Tatla Lake  arrived in town on Tuesday.  Mr. and Mrs. Iver Nygaard of  Hagensborg, are to be congratulated on the birth of a son, which  happy event occurred on Sunday  last.

Will Address the following Public Meetings:  COLONY HALL, HAGENSBORG  THURSDAY, August 6th, at 7:30 p.  M.  The local parties who intend  engaging in cattle-ranching at  the head of South Bentinck Arm  are making preparations for putting cattle on the land.  Oliver Kellogg and Paul Olson  left here on Thursday morning  with a team of horses, wagon,  mower and rake and everything  necessary to put up hay. The  team and machinery was loaded  on a large scow which was towed  by two gasoline boats. A larger  and more substanial scow for the  transportation of cattle is now  under construction.

BRYNILDSEN & CO.,  Stock Only the Be������t FUhing Tackle  BELLA COOLA, B. C.  Mrs. Livingstone, provincial  organizer of the W. C. T. U., has  kindly consented to deliver an  address on the question of  woman's suffrage at each of the  public meetings advertised to  take place on Thursday and Friday next week at Hagensborg  and Bella Coola respectively.  Mr. T. D. Pattullo, ex-mayor  of Prince Rupert, will speak on  the various topics which are engrossing the minds of the electors at the present time.  Mr. Pattullo is a forceful  speaker and a close student of  public matters as they affect this  province, and from his extensive  experience in public life is in a  position to speak authoritatively.  Everyone should make a special  effort to attend these meetings  and gain a clearer understanding  of affairs effecting the welfare  of every elector individually and  the province as a whole.  The town was roused to activity early Monday morning by the  news that an aged lady, Mrs. H.  Thorson, who had gone into the  woods on Sunday afternoon for  the purpose of picking berries  had not returned to her home  and in spite of a close search had  not yet been found. Constable  Broughton at once organized a  search party and proceeded to  the place, which is about five  miles up the valley, and it was  not long before Frank Johnson,  one of,the searchers, came across  the old lady in a very exhausted  condition. She was at once conveyed to her home and medical  attendance summoned. Latest  reports state that she is suffering considerably from shock and  exposure but is progressing  favorably.  Losing her way in the woods,  darkness overtook her and she  was compelled to spend the night  in the bush which at this place  is infested by bear. Truly a  nerve-rack ing experience for any  one let alone a lady of Mrs.  Thorson's age.  The Courier is requested by  the relatives of Mrs. A. Thorson  to express their sincere thanks  to those who so willingly assisted  in the search which resulted so  happily.  Road-superintendent R. Jennings, A. H. Tomlinson, provincial horticulturist, and chief-  constable E. Gammon, arrived  here by gasoline launch on Tuesday.  Mr. Jennings is making one of  his periodical trips of inspection  of road work throughout the valley.  Mr. Tomlinson has had a busy  week with the farmers and also  made an inspection of the experimental plot which is in charge  of Mr. S. Le C. Grant of Aytoun  Farm.  Mr. E. Gammon has spent the  week in becoming familiar with  the valley which he visits now  for the first time,  Harry Burt and Fred Anderson  returned from Safety Cove on  Tuesday. They report that public works have been closed down  at that place.  Jack Jackson and John Nelson  have returned from Ocean Falls  and are nowr comfortably installed in their old quarters.  Mr. W. McCrae, government  timber inspector, visited town  during the week.  The sympathy of the people  throughout the whole valley are  with Mr. and Mrs. A. Hammer  Nootsatsum, in their sad bereavement occasioned by the death of  their infant son, Alger Eric,  aged nine months, who passed  away on Saturday morning last  after a short illness.  The funeral took place at the  Augsburg Cemetery on Sunday  afternoon and presented a most  impressive scene which will not  easily be forgotten.  A short service was held in the  Augsburg Church before proceeding to the graveside, Pastor  Sageng and Capt. Wm. Stevenson delivering touching and appropriate addresses. \  The ceremony at the graveside  was conducted by Rev. Sageng.  A large number of people assembled to show their sympathy  and respect for the bereaved  parents, the intensity of which  was plainly shown by the profusion of floral wreaths which  covered the tiny casket.

SATURDAY, AUGUST V1914.  Despotism.  Most of us have read of the  Attorney-General's recent tour  of the northern part of the province, and some of us may remember the incident of how, when  addressed by a certain Mr. Wade,  ' "The Attorney-General glared  so persistently at Mr. Wade that  the latter attempted to apologize."   (We quote the Vancouver  Daily Province.)   It appears that  there were -other > incidents in  connection   with   that  meeting  that the Daily Province omitted  to mention.    It seems that the  people. of   McBride   took   Mr.  Bowser at his word when he said  ���������he wanted to gain first-hand information' in regard to conditions |  in  the North.    They evidently  believed that a public meeting  was -the right and proper occasion to voice their sentiments in  regard to public matters. ���������  We   are   informed   that  one  gentleman  in the audience essayed to speak in reply to Mr.  Bowser and was strongly supported in his endeavor; but there  was a censor in the meeting in  the person.of Mr. Bowser's provincial, police, who served peremptory notice on the audience  that the meeting had not been;  called for the discussion of public  questions���������albeit it was a public  meeting���������but solely to give the  ministers a chance   to fill  the  citizens of McBride  with "hot  air."  There was no attempt whatever to disturb the meeting, and  if Mr, Bowser had not feared the  result of public discussion of the  government's policies, he would  have welcomed the opportunity  of explaining the course followed  by his colleagues and himself.  Instead he permitted, if he did  not actually inspire, the suppression of free speech.  The provincial police under Mr.  Bowser have shown their useless-  ness in the prevention of crime  as in the capture of criminals.  They have become a joke and a  byeword. It is refreshing to  hear that they have been effective for once, even if only in  effecting the?escape of their boss  from a tight corner at a public  meeting.  This is one of the incidents in  the Attorney-Gederal's triumphal tour not reported in the  Conservative press.  "It is the parting of the ways  forme, for if the McBride government does not meet the wishes of what 1 believe are the great  majority of the people of Prince  Rupert, I shall forfeit my support to that government and  hereafter endeavor to represent  you as an independent."  This is the utterance of Wm.  Manson, M.P.P., in the presence  of Mr. Bowser and Mr. Ross, at  a recent public meeting at Prince  Rupert as reported by the Con-  servative press. I  Mr. Manson was speaking of  the opposition of the people of  Prince Rupert to the application  of the Prince Rupert Hydro-  Electric Company to enter the  city with its wires arid poles.  We read  that this announcement fairly took the meeting by  surprise, and well it might.    It  is certainly unusual to hear of  Mr.   Manson    saying   anything  which may be taken to show that  he possesses the spirit of independence in the slightest degree.  The only trouble is that  Mr.  Manson has laid himself open to  the suspicion that in this utterance he was not sincere.  It must be remembered that  our member had journeyed out  of his district to Fort George to  meet the Attorney-General and  the Minister of Lands, two members of the  Executive Council  who have to deal with this matter of the "Hydro-Electric Co.,  and had been in their'company  a week or more when  he felt  prepared to make this startling  announcement,    Is it reasonable  to believe that he had not been  able to satisfy himself as to what  attitude the Executive Council  [was likely to take? ,  Mr. Manson knew perfectly  well that he was safe in making  this announcement. Mr. Bowser  and Mr. Ross without doubt  knew that he was to make it.  This is nothing moreethan a  piece of cheap gallery play on  the part of Wm. Manson. It is  a mean subterfuge by which he  hoped to reinstate himself in the  good graces of the people of  Prince Rupert, whom he has frequently betrayed by his lack of  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES  son knew, right well that the  sincerity of his utterance would  never be put to the test.  It is difficult to imagine our  representative in the role of an  independent.   We have followed  his political career closely, but  have failed to discover that trait  in   his   character   which   alone  would enable him to act otherwise  than  he has consistently  acted, simply at the dictates of  his political chiefs.    The party  whip  has   a   sting   which   Mr.  Manson's courage will not permit him to dare.    He has shown  himself to be one of the most  dependent and irresponsible men  on  the  floor of the legislative  chamber at the present time.  He has neglected his duty, to  his constituency to such a degree  that Mr. Bowser is forced to admit that on behalf of the government and himself he feels  ashamed.  He has scorned the wishes of  the people and allowed them to  be over-ridden by officious and  incompetent officials.  Truly it is the parting of the  ways for Mr. Manson, and he  knows it. The next election will  relegate him to a place among  those who have been fairly tested  and found wanting. It is too  late. Mr. Manson can never reinstate himself in the favor of  his constituents; and certainly  not by any palpable bluff as this.  moral stamina.  Mr. Manson had far better be  preparing for an early retirement  into private life. His inactivity  and lack of initiative and resourcefulness should be almost  sufficient to enable him to lay  just claim to a soft job on Bow-  It is safe to say that Mr. Man- ser's provincial police force  Slow Progress.  Now that the excitement produced by a vague anticipation of  an early commencement of railroad construction in this place  has subsided and normal conditions exist once more, the matter of a road through to the Interior is paramount in the minds  of everyone.  The matter has been discussed  with  Mi*.  Wm.  Manson,  and a  suggestion offered that a petition  be   circulated    throughout   the  whole district which would be  affected by such a road.    It was  thought that   such   a   petition  might strengthen the hands of  our   member   when   seeking  a  special   appropriation   for   this  purpose.     Our representative,  however,  did'not welcome this  suggestion, but assured his hearers that the road would be constructed   without   the   settlers  having to resort to a petition.  Mr. Manson evidently does not  think  that the  wishes   of   the  people expressed in such a petition  would  have any  weight  with the government.    In fact  he probably knows full well that  it would not.    He says the road  will be built.    Yes, but when?  Last year the appropriation for  roads in this locality was $25,-  000.   It was stated that the major  portion of this amount was to be  expended on the continuation of  the road in the Upper Valley.   It  was further stated that $10,000  were actually spent above the  Kahy 1st River.     Be  this  as  it  may, just about one and a half  miles of new road was built.    Of  course the $25,000 was never expended but that is by-the-way.  This   year,   Mr.   Manson   informed us that $14,000 would be  expended  on roads.    He again  assured us that the major portion  would be spent to push forward  the   road   through   the   valley.  Work has been closed down, at  any rate for the time being, when  only about half the appropriation  is spent.    About $1500 has been  spent in the Upper Valley and  another mile or so of road has  been constructed.    Is this satisfactory to us?    In one respect  it is.    It at leastshows that over  a mile of road, entailing considerable rock work,  can be built  (Continued column 3, page 3.)

Compare this with the  cost of some sections of road  built within the last few years  and you will wonder where the  money went.  Is this what Mr. Manson means  when he says we are to have a  road to the Interior?  Taking .the distance from the  end of the present road to Tatla  Lake at 100 miles, it will take at  the present rate of progress some  thirty-three years to complete  this road.  What Mr. Manson has in mind  for the future we do not know,  but we do know that the appropriation of large sums which are  only half spent is something  which we are tired of, and which  should be stopped.  o     o     o     o     o  We shall likely be told by certain parties that the season is  yet young, and we should "wait  and see" before commencing to  complain. Well, we know that  some foremen have still sums  ranging about two or three hundred dollars yet to spend as soon  as the haying season is over, but  that will not make up the balance  of the $14,000 appropriation. No,  not by many thousands. If we  can be shown at the end of the  season that the whole appropriation has been spent, (even less  ten per cent, for contingencies,  which very seldom occur,) and  that most of it was spent on  pushing the road into the Upper  Valley, we will readily acknowledge the fact.

O. 3ox 859, Prince Rupert, B. C.  Labor or Mackenzie and  Mann?  It is worth while noting the  difference between the attitude  of the Borden government toward Mackenzie and Mann and  its attitude toward the Grand  Trunk Pacific. Incidentally, the  comparison serves to emphasize  the hypocrisy of the govern-  ments professions of desire to  advance the interests'of labor.  Within recent weeks the government delayed the completion  of formalities in connection with  the bond guarantee voted the  Grand Trunk Pacific at the last  session of Parliament, and delayed completion on the pretense  of forcing the adjustment of  certain difficulties between the  company and some of its employees. What deep sympathy  for labor was here displayed!  When the $45,000,000 bond  guarantee for the Canadian Northern was under discussion in  Parliament a motion was offered  by Alphonse Verville, the Labor  member, seconded by W. F. Carroll, the Liberal member for  Cape Breton South, providing  that the guarantee should not be  given until Mackenzie and Mann  agreed to the appointment of a  Board of Conciliation to deal with  the labor troubles in their mines  on Vancouver Island. The motion received unanimous Liberal  support. On the other hand, it  was angrily denounced by Hon.  T. W. Crother, Minister of Labor,  and Premier Borden led his forces  in voting it down. Now, at the  very same time that, the government has been professing great  concern as to the welfare of  Grand Trunk Pacific employees,  the labor troubles in the Vancouver, mines have been growing  steadily worse until a general  strike in British . Columbia is  threatened.  Has the government delayed  the completion of the formalities  in connection with the $45,000,-  000 guarantee for Mackenzie and  Mann in order to force the railway magnates to attempt a  settlement of the difficulties in  their mines? Not a bit of it.  The $45,000,000 "deal" has been  rushed to completion with not a  word  from  the government in  regard  to the   welfare of  the  British Columbia miners.  It makes, oh, such very great  difference whether the government is dealing with Mackenzie  and Mann'or with other men.  When Mackenzie and Mann want  anything from Borden the interests and desires of the railway  multi-millionaires come first.  The interests of labor���������what are  they to Premier Borden and Hon  Mr. White .when those interests  conflict with the wishes of Mackenzie and Mann who worked so  energetically for the Borden  forces in 1911?  o     o     o     o     o  Several districts which have  been seeking the establishment  of experimental farms within  their limits or the extension of  farms already established, have  been told by the Borden government that money was not available to meet their requests. The  same government, however, has  millions to spend on the erection  of drill halls and armories, many  of which are absolutely unnecessary. Under Borden rule, agricultural needs must take second  place to the militaristic hobbies  of Hon. Sam Hughes.  o     o     o     o     o  Under the vicious election law  placed on the Manitoba statute  books bytheRoblin government,  only one "day after registration  was available for protesting  names placed on the electoral  lists in Winnipeg. With bogus  naturalization papers and fake  affidavits the Rogers-Roblin  machine and its liquor allies  plugged the lists with hundreds  of names for the recent elections.  In the one day allowed them, the  Liberals could do little toward  gathering the evidence necessary:  to obtain the removal of the  names improperly placed on the  lists by the Rogers-Roblin "operators. '' Thus, by an iniquitous  law and the aid of gangs of per-  sonators and repeaters from the  United States operating on election day, the Conservative ministry "loaded the dice" to save  itself from defeat.  o     o     o     o     o  A surplus in the United States  treasury would seem to show  that the cutting off of duties has  not proved so disastrous from a  financial outlook as prophesied.  o     c  HOE  D      C  HOE  3      C  HOJ  3       O  R.
