C, SATURDAY, AUGUST 2,   1913.  $1.00 a Year  H, S. Clements, MP.  Visits Bella Coola  This Port Logical Termius for Railroad  Says Member for Comox-Atlin  Bella Coola has been favored  with a flying visit from H. S.  Clements, representing the Comox-Atlin District in the Dominion House of Parliament.  Owing to the fact that he was  on his way to meet Hon. J. D.  Hazen, Minister of Marine and  Fisheries, at Prince Rupert, Mr.  Clements' stay was of short duration.  A hastily arranged meeting was  held at the Mackenzie School on  Monday morning, when Mr., Clements took the opportunity of  addressing  a moderately large  assembly, presided over by Mr.  S. Le C. Grant, president of the  local Conservative organization.  After a few introductory remarks by  Mr.  Grant, Mr.  Clements  took   the   platform   and  proceeded to outline  the  work  which had engaged his attention  during the last session of parliament.  Referring to the fulfilment of  his pre-election pledges in regard  to the telegraph line and a weekly mail service, both of which he  asserted has cost him considerable effort, Mr. Clements passed  on to the question of independent licenses for white-fishermen,  and promised that next year any  fisherman would be able to obtain an independent license at  any time up to commencement  of the fishing season.  After making mention of the  "Good Roads Bill" which he said  was only defeated for political  reasons, Mr. Clements made  brief reference to the Naval Bill,  explaining that the money involved was to be looked upon  only as a loan, adding the rather  sweeping and not easily explained  statement that it was surely better to lend the Mother Country  $35,000,000 than to put up $300,-  000,000 for a scheme that could  not possibly be carried through,  at any rate not at present.  Passing on to the matter of the  projected railroad from Bella  Coola, the member drew attention to the urgent necessity of  this line in view of the increased  immigration which will occur on  the opening of the Panama Canal,  and expressed himself as satisfied that Bella Coola was the  logical terminus for such a railroad. Making mention of the  efforts of Messrs Verschoyle and  Harris, the promoters of the  Pacific & Hudson Bay line towards securing a guarantee of  the "bonds from the Dominion  govern m e n t. Mr. Clements  roused his audience to enthusiasm  by assuring them these gentlemen's efforts would be rewarded  and that the road would certainly  be built in the near future, pledging himself to give the matter  his heartiest support.  Speaking of the steps taken by  the government towards agriculture, he stated that more attention would be given to this  important matter in the future.  Mr. Clements stated that he is  sparing no efforts to bring the  needs of his constituency before  the various ministers of the  crown, two of whom, Hon. J.  D. Hazen and Hon. Robert Rogers are visiting the coast this  season.  Mr. Grant in bringing the  meeting to a close said he hoped  to aee Mr. Clements at the annual exhibition of farm produce to  be held in the fall, the exact date  of which he would be duly notified.  Mr. Clements left for Prince  Rupert immediately after the  close of the meeting.  Politcal Situation  Critical in Venezuela  Willemstad, Curacao, .Inly 30.  It is rumoured here that the  town of Coro, Venezuela, has  been occupied by partisans, of  Castro, and that General Jura-  do, governor of the state of  Falcon, has been taken prisoner.

Now Is the Time  The appeal of the Liberal party  at the present time is not directed to Liberals alone but to all  good citizens of all parties interested in the. welfare of. this Province. We believe there is a  strong under-current of deep-  rooted dissatisfaction with con-  ditions prevailing in British  Columbia today, and the task  imposed upon.the Liberal party  is to convince the electorate that  they have an organized party  pledged to public service, ready  to assume the responsibilities'of  government, to which they can  turn for relief. A party that  will do away with such evils as  those fostered by the Conservative administration during their  ten years of office. We believe  the public sentiment in the Province is sound and wholesome at  heart and will readily respond,  when once thoroughly aroused,  to the crying needs of a change  from a policy that has proved so  detrimental to provincial prosperity.  The record of the "McBride  government is well known to  those who, have taken the  trouble to look into it. It has  been a record of exploitation,  waste, extravagance, centraliza-  of powers, over-riding of laws,  toleration and protection of vice  and apparently grafting as well.  Any one of these records proved  to be perpetuated by a government, as in the McBride regime,  should be its death-knell. The  existing intolerable conditions  must come to an end and be supplanted with the only true and  logical mode of government  by���������RULE BY THE PEOPLE  IN THE INTEREST OF THE  PEOPLE���������for rule by a political  machine which uses the public  revenue to further the power of  the authors of that machine.  The time has arrived for every  citizen who has the welfare of  the Province at heart to place  that welfare ahead of party interests. To demand the resignation of the present government  and place in power men who are  pledged to the public service.  To reject those who have been  all for party aggrandisement at  the expense of the electorate.  To do these things with a vim  and in no uncertain manner is  the duty we owe to our Province  and ourselves.  Mr. Clements says that all ships  other than dreadnoughts will be  built in Canada.  Mr. Borden says Canada can  not hope to build real ships within twenty-five or fifty years.  What do they mean?  o     o     o     o     o  While admitting his inability  to give any approximate date for  the commencement of construction, Mr. Clements hoped that  the inhabitants of the Valley,  even including one of the proprietors of this paper, would live  to see a railway at Bella Coola.  Very considerate, and distinctly encouraging considering that  the gentleman particularly referred to is yet a young man and  has lived little more than half  of the. allotted span.  o     o     o     o     c  Mr. Clements says we must  look upon the $35,000,000 for  dreadnoughts merely as a loan  to the Mother Country.  When did the mother country  ever ask Canada for a loan?  O ;        C O O O  Hon. W. T.White, Sir William  Mackenzie and Sir Richard McBride will unitedly try to divert  some British money to. Canada  to relieve th'e financial situation..  Meanwhile Mr. Clements wants  to lend Great Britain $35,000,000.  . c  o     o     o     o     o  The strong point about the  Borden Naval policy according to  Mr: Clements is that we give  nothing.  The poor British taxpayer is  expected to man and maintain  these empty ships until such  time as Canada needs them and  then to hand them back and be  satisfied.  o    o     o     o     o  Work on the bridge was closed  down to enable men, many of  whom are not electors, to hear  Mr. Clements. But woe-betide  the man who quits his work to  attend a meeting of wicked Liberals. His name would certainly be mud.  o     o     o     o     o  The. political footpads in Vancouver who claim to have been  empowered by the Dominion  government with the right to  collect a royalty on every yard of  sand taken from the sea-shore  have been circumvented in their  designs by a   decision  of   the  courts.  o     o     o     o     o  Still the fact remains that H.  H. Stevens, M. P.,. late of the U.  S. army, is a most enterprising  man and is doing his best to improve opportunity.  o ���������   o     b     o     o  Does an body imagine the workingmen of Canada would endorse  a contribution of thirty-five million dollars to the Admiralty for  ships to be built in the Old Country in preference to a policy  which provides for two Canadian  fleet units, a considerable portion  of which would ibe constructed in  Canada ? Had the Laurier policy of  1910 not been abandoned by Mr.  Borden, the firm of Denny Brothers, of Dumbartony Scotland,  in co-operationwith a well known  local company, would have had  an. extensive shipbuilding plant  at Esquimalt before this.  c     o     o     o     o  It is said that the three Dreadnoughts that;- Mr. Borden proposes to lend, to the Admiralty  will form a good nucleus for the  Canadian permanent naval policy  of the future.  According to Mr. Borden they  will be forty-five years out of  date by the time Canada is able  to build ships of her own.  BOWSER LOOKS AFTER HIS OWN  Recognising that the life of a  farmer in this province is not a  happy one, and that tilling the  soil is perhaps one of the most  unremunerative employments.  Mr.' Bowser remembering that  charity should begin at home,  uses his influence on behalf of  his brother, and obtains for him  the more remunerative position  of chairmain of the greater sewage commission, at a salary of  $5000.  Frank Bowser is a farmer by  occupation, and although not a  civil engineer is brother to the  attorney-general, who has so  successfully assisted in the draining of the resources of the province, so perhaps Frank is not  so ill-suited to his new job as  some people might at first imagine.  At any rate it is easier than  growing spuds.  Conservative Organizer Appointed  The British Columbia Conservative Association has selected  Dr. Scharschmidt as travelling  organizer.  Most people have supposed that  the Conservative party in the  province was already well organized. It has probably been disa-:  covered however, that certain  parts of the political machine,  probably a few road superintendents and similar officials need  bringing into line in order to ensure the proper results at the  next election. Hence the appointment of a travelling organizer.  Within the next two years,  probably sooner, if the Borden  government is in power, it will  endeavor to negotiate with the  United States the reciprocity arrangement in natural products  which Sir John A. Macdonald  twice endeavored to obtain and  which Mr. Fielding did obtain  in 1911. This will not be done,  however, until every other substitute has been tried. It will be  an economic necessity, forced by  the consumers of both countries.    ���������  ���������-Victoria'Times.  ���������^���������^.i..-,--.   ..    u,   ....        t      ,. ||rrn     |M  Now why didn't Mr. Hazen  bring his, distinguished fellow  New Brunswicker, Dr. Pugsley,  along with him ? They could  have spent the time on their way  out very pleasantly in exchanging reminiscences of the last  session.  The Promised Jail  Welearn from a news item appearing in a recent issue of the  Prince Rupert Weekly Empire  that Masset is to have a first-  class, non-breakable and burglar  proof jail similar' to the one  which, according- to the Weekly  Empire, has just been completed  at Bella Coola.  It is true that tenders for the  construction of such a building  were called for early in the  spring, but so far no more has  been heard of the matter and the  local constable still has his office  in a small room over the bank,  while court is held in any place  that can be procured for the occasion. \  We wonder if the matter is  being delayed in order that a  suitable court room be added to  the plans.

[But alas for the tired workers  who appeal to Morpheus for renewed energy, on the bank of  [the famous Tee-its-Squanee that  khreads'its way to the sea through  [ourbeautiful town are rudely disturbed by the postmaster's cow,  [ the same having attached to her  ��������� neck a bell that evidently once,  'from its metallic clang, adorned  the engine  of a  freight train.  This Cow,, with the fearful attachment   for   dispelling sleep,  [waits till   the   stillness of   the  !night broods over the weary tenants of the  camp  to  meander  amongst their midst,  then  the  'flies looking for a place to rest  their weary wings, alight on the  cow's ears, with the result that  the cow gives a jerk and sets in  motion  the bell with  its never  ceasing metallic clang.    Unfortunately the camp dwellers are  not like the  seven  sleepers  in  history, they awake, something  is said and the disturber of the  ; peace is driven away; but this  cow appears to be trained to walk  .in a circle, for no sooner is the  Hast man once more asleep, than  ]she  is  back, accompanied with  [the bell; with deeper sayings by  ] the men another wild chase is  [made for possession of the bell.  I In fact one of the weary toilers  had been used to railway work  ���������and, in dreamland fancied he was  back again amidst the clanging  of bells and the snorting of iron  steeds,  awoke with  a start" on  ,. first  hearing  the  clang of the  I bell so near in the belief that the  I first railway train had arrived in  town.    It must be some bell to  make a guy think that from being hundreds of miles away from  railway tracks he had gone to  sleep nearby them.  The Courier thinks the postmaster should sympathise with  the men in their dilemma.  We have no remedy to offer,  except that if we had a jail with  a stable in connection, the men  could apply to Justice Macfarlane  for an order to the constable for  the stabling and proper caring  of the postmaster's cow and its  bell, during the hours when the  town should be wrapped in  slumber.  What Does It Mean?  (Subscribed)  SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINING  REGULATIONS  When a city lot sells for $1000  per foot what does that mean?  In the first place you will see  I erected say a ten-story building,  the ground door divided into 25  ft. stores, renting from $300 to  $500 per month, the upper floors  into offices renting for $25 to $50  per month. This rent is paid by  the man of ordinary means.  When he buys his tea and sugar  the rents of the ground floors are  met, when he gets some legal  advice, has a tooth pulled or some  bridge work done, draws out an  insurance policy or gets some  plans from an architect, he supplies the office rents of the upper  floors.  At the end of the month the  landlord collects the rents. Iti  is only fair to say that faxes,  electric light, water rates, heating, janitor work and insurance,  mount up very considerably, yet j  the writer submits that still the  rents are too high.  Money thus gained is a source  of temptation to the owner.  Some of it goes into real estate,  thus preventing the poor from  owning their own property, and  paves the way for the galling  rental system, some goes for $5  theatre seats, fifty dollar hats,  some to buy expensive collars  for poodle dogs and some toward  laudable enterprises for many of  these men are not bad men, but  they are tempted to extravagance with money that the writer  submits is not their own. Money  to be owned must be earned and  all that any property owner is  entitled to is an earning wage.  In the face of such facts when  election day comes  round  men  anxious for the success of their  various parties pick out candidates, whether competent or incompetent, if only they can win.  The writer would suggest that if  the citizens would get together  as  a   whole  and   pick  on   men  honorable  and   competent  who  would deal in a masterly fashion  with these and kindred evils they  would  be   acting   the   part  of  wisdom.  To this end every constituency  should have a committe of citizens at work before every election for a considerable length of  time canvassing for suitable candidates, so that on election day  there would be candidates which  would at least represent some  rational attempt on the part oi*  the people to deal with real prob-  pOAI.

Three Irishmen were stopping  at a second-rate hotel, and one of  them had imbibed so freely at the  bar that he had to be carried to  his room,; in which also slept a  negro in a seperate bed.
