Mr. and Mrs. Anderson, late  of Holberg, Vancouver Island,  have accepted the situation of  taking care of the cattle ranch  atTalleo.

The prohibition rally at the  Mackenzie school last Sunday  evening was fairly well attended.  Short addresses were made by  Miss Heffron, Rev. W. H. Gibson  and C. Carlson. Rev. Gibson  called special attention to. the  misrepresentations and misleading arguments of the Merchants'  Protective Association as published,in the newspapers of the  province.

The season's public works have  started in the lower part of the  valley with H. D. Brown as foreman. He, with his men, is engaged in re-planking the approach to the wharf; and the  gravelling of the road through  the townsite.  Our readers in Bella Ccola will  be pleased to. learn that-Fred  Grant, son of. S. Le C. Grant,  has been promoted to lance-  corporal.

Sockeye salmon the output of the  canneries in this vicinity will  compare well with that of other  seasons.  The salmon pack of the different canneries up-to-date are as  follows: Namu, 20,000; Manitou,  9000; and Kimsquit, 10,000 cases.  .The local cannery will, probably, at the. end of this week  have beaten the record of the  whole of any former season  with a pack of nearly 25000 cases.  The Cohoe run has not fairly  started yet; although the number  caught is increasing day by day.  The Dominion launch Charles  Todd returned last Tuesday from  a trip including every Indian  village and camp from Smiths  Inlet to Lowe Iniet.  A. M. Tyson, inspector of Indian agencies, andChas. Tucker,  Dominion constable, made the  rounds of the district looking  after the welfare of the wards  ofthe nation. '  It was found, that an unusual  amount of sickness was prevailing, apparently caused by the  cold and damp weather of. the  season. The hospital at Rivers  Inlet was filled to overflowing  with patients of different races.  As the fishing season is practically over the hospital will be  closed September first and the  staff return to headquarters at  Bella Bella hospital.

At Ocean Falls the preparations  for manufacturing are on a truly  gigantic scale and cannot be rendered justice in a short news  item.        _________  A new concern has taken hold  of affairs at Swanson Bay so  that the outlook for renewed activities at this long-abandoned  place is now of the brightest.  in abundance.

I visited the valley in the interest of "The World," Vancouver, spending several very happy  days there, meeting very interesting people, visiting the old  Hudson's Bay trading post,  where every stick and store  seem to bespeak to the present  population of the hardships,  pleasure and romance of the"  pioneers of Bella Coola and the  Chilcotin country. The valley  is nicely dotted with progressive  ranches all along the interesting <  and historic banks of the Bella  Coola river, parallel to which in  course of time, the settlers are  anticipating a railroad to te uin-  ning, if the government willcnly  accede to the wishes of the  people it will open up a very  valuable country. ,\ '.';. i ���������,','������������������  BellaCoola is theproudpossessor of the only paper published  between Vancouver and Prince  Rupert, it is a very interesting  weekly called the Courier'.  .���������  My, only regret was that time  would not permit me to linger  longer in paradise valley and it',  was a very reluctant "World"  that wandered farther to other ,  fields of labor, promising myself  another visit to Bella Coola in  the near future; only sorry the  general public is not well enough  acquainted with the beauty spots  of British Columbia.  * ��������� .-���������������"'"'  ��������� Sunday School  Church Service  10:45 a. m.  7:30 p.m.  Preacher for Sunday���������Rev.

A dignified province should,  among its many eminent sons,  be able to find someone who isi  more able to lead his party and  administer the affairs of the |  commonwealth than Mr. Bowser;  and evidence's are accumulating  that such a man has been found  and that Bowser will be dismissed from the position in which  he has proven himself a failure.  Mr. Brewster's Victory.  . '-A great many persons who take  their wisdom from the pap-fed  Bowser press have been in high  glee over what they considered  Mr. Brewster's great mistake in  instituting an action against the  Attorney-General, to decide the  legality of the latter part of the  last legislature and also that of  Mr. Bowser's payment of about  $7,000,000 to tlie P.-G.

At a rather"scantily attended  public Conservative meeting held  at Esquimalt, where two prominent Conservatives of the province, II. F. Green, M.R.and H.  B. Thomson, were present as  speakers, R. II. Pooley the Conservative candidate for that district, made a threat which will  1 o  resound throughout the province  until the campaign closes.  "He said: "Charlie Jasper, Mr.  Luscombe, Mr. Wise and Mr.  Saunders, I give you this chance.

It  and his supporters will find that  would be interesting to know by  in this matter he has been a'what authority he spoke thus.  blind leader of the blind.  The contention oh the part of  Brewster's opponents has been  that Mr. Brewster's action was  caused by political spite, was altogether unnecessary, would upset business and' have other deplorable results, such for instance  as stopping all employment of  m in on road work for want of  funds.  It has been pointed out, in the  Liberal press at least, that it is  of the highest importance that  the legality of the acts, of the  last session be definitely estab-  Jishedand the court is the proper  authority to do so.  ���������Now the learned Mr. Justice  Morrison has decided 'that "it is  important that this case be tried  thoroughly and well for it involves a very important legal constitutional question."  The Attorney-General's attitude of' ignoring the action was  very severly dealt with by the  court; the result of which is that  instead off-as the servile supporters of Bbwser contend, Mr.  Brewster has made himself ridiculous, by commencing this ac-  tiion, it is Mr. Bowser who has  done so by the position he has  taken, and the court has in effect so declared.  We have in our humble position  repeatedly ur.ged that Mr. Bowser is lacking in the discernment  necessary in a successful leader,  and the absurd position taken by  him in this matter is additional  Did Mr. Green, M. P., who was  present consent to it? We do  not think he will admit being  party to such a political blunder.  Anyone who is acquainted with  the methods consistently pursued by our provincial government-will not be surprised to  learn that dismissal from public  in its efforts to build up a strong  political machine been ruthless  in its treatment of officials who  have objected to its .candidates  or shown disobedience to the  party whip. They have been  given a short shrift and a quick  dismissal without any reason  given whatever.  We know of a case in. Bella  Coola where agovernmentollicial  who had received his appointment in recognition of services  rendered the government after  ten years of faithful, service,  was dismissed by telegraph without cause given, but, no doubt,  because he had dared ,to show  his independence by refusing to  vote for Wm. Manson inUhe last  election.  It is safe topredict thatas Mr.  Manson's expression of- ill will  in this case will not increase the  number of votes cast for him in  this election, neither will Miv  Pooley or the party he. represents gain any additional support by issuing threats. Such'  men as Manson and Pooley are  of the Hun type, who think that  by threats and persecutions men  will be made submissive and  cowardly, but election day will  show that methods such as these  have had the opposite effect and  that the freemen of British Columbia will on the 14th of Sept.  declare in no uncertain sound  that the days of intimidation  shall be at an end and that men  shall be permitted to work for  the welfare of the country according to their convictions and  not by the dictates of party bosses.     ' ,  In this connection it is significant to note that as, far as, we  service awaits any employee or'have learned, the Conservative  official who does not support the "press of the province preserves  machine. But we do not recall a discreet silence on this inci.  that.this practice has been ever dent and it is not risky to make  proclaimed from the public plat-'the  prediction   that   under  the  form before.  .'

In the strain, stress and an-  guish caused by the war it is  hard for short-sighted human  beings to see that in spite of it  all the war will be the means of  bringing about conditions unknown hitherto that will be of  the greatest benefit to. mankind.  Before this cataclysm descended upon the world the increase  of wealth and general prosperity  were the greatest in the world's  history. And'the good times enjoyed had the effect of causing  the people to regard pleasure and  comfort as the greatest objectof  achievement in life. They were  losing, sight of the essentials,  the real worth-while things, and  it is not very unreasonable to  venture the assertion that these  highly civilized countries of the  world were, in their height ol  prosperity, hastening along the  high way to ruin.  But this civilization is not destined to failure. The world's  affairs are guided by a stronger  and abler hand than that of eminent statesmen.  In the midst of the headlong  career of the nations who were  congratulating themselves upon  their prosperity and many  achievements,; suspecting no  danger, like a flash of lightening  from the clear sky came the war  calling a sudden halt.  And the result of the conflict  as-near as we can judge is that  when it is over people will insist  that the relations of thenations  shall in the future be such as to  make wars impossible. No one  nation will be permitted,to lord  it over another; the smaller  nations will be as secure in their  rights as"the greatest.  Militarism, with its waste of  wealth and energy, with its high  taxation and engendered pride,  ambition and covetousness will  no more be tolerated.  Another reform which has received a new impetus in this  struggle is that of the abolition  of the liquor traffic. The example already set by some of the  leading countries of the world  in the adoption of this reform  vyill be so strong that it will become well nigh irresistible. The  most conservative of nations will  eventually be forced into line  ^l^^Sl^^ESrS^^  Mjickay Smith, Blair k Co. Ltd.  "^  ' VANCOUVER, B. C.

Wholesale Grocers Vancouver, B. C.  British traditions and customs  which have been established for  centuries, and which are dear to  the heart of every Britisher, as  they represent in him the very  foundation of that Government,  which he believes to be the  freest on the face of the earth,  are thrown to the ground and  trampled in the dust by the B.  C. Prohibition Act. 5 This phase  of the referendum legislation on  which the electors will vote on  Sept. 14th should be carefully  investigated by every loyal British subject.  A fundamental principle of the  private life of every Britisher  is that "A man's home is his  castle," and the sentiment expressed by this motto is dear to  tho heart of every man who enjoys the protection of the British  flag. The B. C. Prohibition Act,  without the slightest regard for  this just and dearly cherished  right of the subject, sets this  principle absolutely at naught,  and tramples it under foot.  Clause 48 of- the Act provides  that any officer of the law, provincial or local, may at any time  and without a warrant, forcibly  break into the home of any citizen if he has the merest information or least idea that the oct  cupant of the house possesses  liquor. Not only may he^. break  into the home, but, haying .entered, he may forcibly break  open any closet, chest, box or  receptaicle in the house.  The' question as.to whether  such methods are in accordance  with British tradition's and custom will be answered at once ty  one little word which contains  only two letters.  Another fundamental rule of  British life is that when a man  is attacked, through the process  of law he has the right to know  who is behind the prosecution.  This just and time-honored custom is absolutely thrown' overboard by clause 29 of the Prohibition Act. This provides that  when any person get the idea in  his head that a citizen has liquor  in his possession, he can go to a  constable ar.d tell him what he  thinks. On the basis of this  casual conversation the constable  can make complaint and enter a  prosecution in his own name.  The informer runs no risk of his  identity being disclosed as the  Act specifically provides that the  constable, need not "Communicate the name of the person giving such information."  What an opportunity this clause  opens up for a man or woman  getting square with a neighbor,  with whom there may be a neighborhood   quarrel,   or  where a  neighborhood grudge exists?  What a wide field this clause  opens up for the black-mailer,  that type of person despised by  all honorable men ?    And yet  such methods as these are deliberately, outlined in the B. C.  Prohibition Act.   Is it any wonder that even ardent Prohibitioiir  ists, who are also true British  subjects, are refusing to approve  an Act containing such un-British  provisions.  Another fundamental rule of  British law is that a^man is innocent until he is proven guilty.  The B. C. Prohibition Act seeks  to overthrow this firmly established principle, its provisions  stating that, when prosecution is  entered against a man on account of; his haying liquor in his  possession,, it is up to the accused person to prove that this  liquor was legally acquired and  legally held. In plain English,  this provision means that a man  is guilty until he proveSjhimself  innocent. Such j legislation is  certainly   not  only un-British,  SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINING  REGULATIONS  POAI.

The balance of the wards are  iiivon over to casts of tuberculosis. Most r of the casualties  arrive from France.  It is quite a sight to be at  Shornclifl'e'station and see an  hospital train arrive. Ambulaii-  ,es are there in profusion and  ivery effort is made to' expedite  the wounded man to his place in  the hospital. Let me give a  rough outline of the procedure;  Red Cross (voluntary) men and  military ambulance men are on  the platform, with stretchers,  blankets an,d pillows awaiting  the train. As each patient is  carried out he is laid on the platform or in a waiting room, where  girls are ready with hot drinks  and the preachers ascend to .their  proper dignity and tender the  ever-weicome cigarette, the patient is then carefully placed in  the ambulance which conveys  him to the hospital. Here he is  met by an officer who is named  the admitting .officer, who diagnoses the case'and the patient is  'sent to a ward which deals with  such cases as his. His trench-  soiled clothes are taken from him  and he is given a wash and some  refreshment. It is well to notice  how each patient has some little  curio, a souvenir, the picture of  his girl, his wife, that he keeps  his eye on and retains.. The loss  of this trouble's, him more than  the permanent result of the  wound he bears. ���������  ��������� He receives treatment in accordance with his complaint and  takes all that comes in a more  cheerful spirit than one is in  clined to believe if not personally observed. Crutches, walking  sticks and invalid chairs are in  profusion. It is good to see the  boys out on the sea front recounting' their experiences to  each other. The patients have  their recreation rooms and all  that is good, but the necessary  discipline in a military hospital  is trying .j the'men. As soon  as the men become convalescent  they are moved to convalescent  homes, which'are also run by  Canadians, and there are many  in this county of Kent.  Our friends (?) the Huns make  lots of raids over this sea front,  but up to present have done no  damage to our1 little part of the  world. All day yesterday we  could hear the rumble, of-'guns  in .^France. Only 22 miles of  water separate,, us,, from Calais  and,thus the sound reaches us  easily.  We have strong expectations'  of the war ending,, this year and  the North Bentick Arm will look  good J;o a few of us over here.  Best wishes to all who know me  .in Bella Coola Valley.   I expect  and hope there, will be a rush  from Bella  Coola  to  join  the  Scandinavian regiment.  Pte. Chas. Lord,  524 555 C. E. R,  Moore Barracks Hospital,  July 21, 1916.

As this was my very newest  trip to this wonderful valley, I  was very much interested as to  what ad ventures my visit invited.  I, like all traveling people, wended my way to the hotel which  I found nestled in a very pretty  spot.

Grant, returned to her post of  duty at Victoria on Sunday.  Peter Lauretson of Hagensborg, and Percy Gadsden of Bella Coola, have been appointed  by the government as the official  members of the Bella Coola General Hospital Board.   T. JR. Astleford and his two  oldest daughters had quite an/  adventure last week which came'  near having serious consequences. They had been across the  river near their place to have a  look after Mr. Spotton's cattle.  In coming back their boat became  unmanageable and drifted with  gaged in re-planking the approach to the wharf and the  gravelling of the road through  the townsite.  Our readers in Bella Coola will  be pleased to learn that Fred  Grant, son of S. Le C. Grant,  lias been promoted to lance-  corporal. He is on active duty  in the severe fighting going on  at the British front in France.  Ed. Grant, his brother, who  enlisted last fall in the ammunition column has already been  placed on active service somewhere in France.  We publish this week a letter  from Chas. Lord, under the heading, "A Canadian Hospital in  England."

The salmon pack of the different canneries up-to-date are as  follows: Namu, 20,000; Manitou,  9000; and Kimsquit, 10,000 cases.  The local cannery will, probably, at the end of this week  have beaten the record of the  whole of any former season  with a pack of nearly 25000 cases.  The Cohoe run has not fairly  started yet; although the number  caught is increasing day by day.  The Dominion launch Charles  Todd returned last Tuesday from  a trip including every Indian  village and camp from Smiths  Inlet to Lowe Inlet.  A. M. Tyson, inspector of Indian agencies, and Chas. Tucker,  Dominion constable, made the  rounds of the district looking  after the welfare of the wards  of the nation.  It was found that an unusual  amount of sickness was prevailing, apparently caused by the  cold and damp weather of the  season. The hospital at Rivers  Inlet was filled to overflowing  with patients of .different races.  As the fishing season is practically over the hospital will be  closed September first and the  staff return to headquarters at  Bella Bella hospital.  Mr. Tucker reports that he  found great activity at different  industrial centres along the route.  At Ocean Falls the preparations  for manufacturing are on a ti-uly  gigantic scale and cannot be rendered justice in a short news  item.  A new concern has taken hold  of affairs at Swanson Bay so  that the outlook for renewed activities at this long-abandoned  place is now of the brightest.  running more or less noisily at  their base, full of the fisherman's  choice, seem to be mothered by  their silent watch.  I visited -the valley in the interest of "The World," Vancouver, spending several very happy  days there, meeting very interesting people, visiting the old  Hudson's Bay trading post,  where every stick and stone  seem to bespeak to the present  population of the hardships,  pleasure and romance of the  pioneers of Bella Coola and the  Chilcotin country. The valley  is nicely dotted with progressive  ranches all along the interesting  and historic banks of the Bella  Coola river, parallel to which in  course of time, the settlers are  anticipatingarailroad to be running, if the government will only  accede to the wishes of the  people it will open up a very  valuable country.  Bella Coola is the proud possessor of the only paper published  between Vancouver and Prince  Rupert, it is a very interesting  weekly called the Courier.  My only regret was that time  would not permit me to linger  longer in paradise valley and it  was a very reluctant "World"  that wandered farther to other  fields of labor, promising myself  another visit to Bella Coola in  the near future; only sorry the  general public is not well enough  acquainted with the beauty spots  of British Columbia.  ?

A great many persons who take  their wisdom from the pap-fed  Bowser press have been in high  glee over what they considered  Mr. Brewster's great mistake in  instituting an action'against the  Attorney-General, to decide the  legality of the latter part of the  last legislature and also that of  .Mr. Bowser's payment of about  ��������� $7,000,000 to the P. G. E. Rail-  ,   road without authority.  *���������'���������' Mr. Bowser, whose opinion in  , important legal-cases has on sev-  ��������� eral occasions been overruled by  .\ the higher courts, has,' like an  ostrich,- trying to hide his head  from coming danger,  been de-;  evidence of  the correctness of  our contention.  A dignified province should,  among its many eminent sons,  be able to find someone who is-  more able to lead his party and  administer the affairs of the  commonwealth than Mr. Bowser;  and evidences are accumulating  that such a man has been found  and-that Bowser will be dismissed from the position in which  he has proven himself a failure.  i .  -      o     o     o      o     o  A  Typical Rubber Stamp.  In the Esquimalt constituency  the Bowser party has for its candidate a man who is not afraid  to voice, the sentiments of himself or the party, although ordinary prudence would seem to dictate that it would.be to his interest to be s.ilenton some points.  At a rather scantily attended  public Conservative meeting held  at Esquimalt, where tw.p prominent Conservatives of the prov-  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES  ince, R. F. Green, M. P., and,H.  B. Thomson, were ' present as  speakers, R. H. Pooley the Conservative candidate for that district, made a threat-which will  resound throughout the province  until the campaign closes.  He said: "Charlie Jasper, Mr.-  Luscombe, Mr. Wise and Mr.  Saunders, I give you this chance.  Within forty-eight hours you  send in your resignations to the  Eiberal Association and retire  from .that-body and-send meva  copy of the'resignation.' If you  do .not you must take the consequences."

It has bpen pointed out, in the  Liberal press at least, that it is  ���������of'the highest importance that  " the legality of the acts of the  last session be ���������definitely established and the court is the proper  authority to do so.  Now the learned Mr. Justice  Morrison has decided that "it is  /'important-that this case be-tried  thoroughly and well for it invol-_  yes a very important legal constitutional question."  The Attorney-General's attitude of ignoring the action was  very severly dealt with by the  court; the result of which is that  instead.of, as the servile supporters of Bowser contend, Mr.  Brewster has made himself ridiculous by commencing this ac-  tiion, it-is Mr. Bowser who has  done so by the position he has  taken, and the court has in effect so declared.  We have in our humble position  repeatedly urged that Mr. Bowser is lacking in the discernment  necessary in- a successful leader,  and the absurd position taken by  him in this matter is additional  sued by our provincial government will not be surprised to  learn that dismissal from public  in its efforts to build up a strong  political machine been ruthless  in its treatment of officials who  have objected to its candidates  or shown disobedience to the  party whip. They have been  given a short shrift and a quick  dismissal without any reason  given whatever.  We know of a case in Bella  Coola where a government official  who had received his appointment in recognition of services  rendered the government after  ten years of- faithful service,  was dismissed by telegraph without cause given, but, no doubt,  because he had dared to show  his independence by refusing to  vote for Wm. Manson in the last  election.,.  It is safe to predict that as Mr.  Manson's' expression of- ill will  in this case^ill n'otincrease the  number of votes cast for him in  this election, "neither will Mr.  Pooley or the party he represents gain any additional support by issuing threats. Such  men as Manson and Pooley are  of the Hun type, who think-that  - -        * ,N s  by threats and persecutions men  will be made submissive and-  cowardly, '.but election day will  show that methods such as these  have had the opposite effect and  that the freemen of British Columbia will on the 14th of Sept.  declare in no uncertain sound  that the days of intimidation  shall be at an end and, that men  shall be permitted to work for  the welfare of the country according to their convictions and  not by the dictates of party bosses.  In this connection'it is significant^ note that as far as we  service awaits any employee or have learned, the Conservative  official who does not support the press of the province preserves  machine. But we do not recall a discreet silence on this inci.  that this practice has been ever dent and it is not risky to make  proclaimed from the public plat- the prediction that under the  form before. circumstances the men mention-  y ��������� \  Ourprovincial government has ed will not resign from the Lib  eral Association, neither will  they be dismissed from their  positions in the government service; at least not right away.  The Dawn of a New Era.  In the strain, stress and anguish  caused by the war it is  hard1 for  short-sighted ,human  beings to see that in spite of it  all the war will be the means of  bringing   about   conditions  unknown hitherto that will be of  the greatest benefit to mankind.  Before this cataclysm descen-  ded upon the world the increase  of wealth and general prosperity  were the greatest in the world's  history.    And the good times enjoyed had the effect of causing  the people to regard pleasure and  comfort as the greatest object of  achievement in life.    They were  losing sight 6f the essentials,  the real worth-while things, and  it is  not very unreasonable to  venture the assertion that these  highly civilized countries of the  world were, in their height oi  prosperity, hastening along the  high way to ruin.  But this civilization is'not destined to failure. The world's  affairs are guided by a stronger  and abler hand than that of eminent statesmen.  In the midst, of the headlong  career of the ^nations who were  congratulating themselves upon  their prosperity and many  achievements,, suspecting no  danger, like a flash of lightening  from the clear sky came the war  calling a sudden halt. -  And the result of the conflict  as near as we can judge is that  when it is.over people will insist  that the relations of the nations  shall in the future be such as to  make wars impossible. No one  nation will be permitted to lord  it over another; the smaller  nations will be as secure in their  rights as the greatest.  Militarism,' with its waste of  wealth and energy, with its high  taxation and engendered pride,  ambition and ;c6vetousness' will  no more be tolerated.  Another reform which has received a new. impetus in-this  struggle is that of the abolition  of the liquor: traffic. The example already set by some of the  leading countries of'the world  in the adoption of this reform  will be so strong that it will become well nigh irresistible. The  most conservative of nations will  eventually be forced into line  and a new era will dawn.  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co. Ltd  VANCOUVER, B.C.

C.  j  "It Always Pleases"  m  i  British traditions and customs,  which have been established for  centuries, and which are dear to  the heart of every Britisher, as  they represent in him the very  foundation of that Government,  which he believes to be the  freest on the face of the earth,  are thrown to the ground and  trampled in the dust by the B.  C. Prohibition Act. This phase  of the referendum legislation on  which the electors will vote on  Sept. 14th should be carefully  investigated by every loyal British subject.  A fundamental principle of the  private life of every Britisher  is that "A man's home is his  castle," and the sentiment expressed by this motto is dear'to  the heart of every man who enjoys the protection of the British  flag. The B. C. Prohibition Act,  without the slightest regard foi  this just and dearly cherished  right of the subject, sets this  principle absolutely at naught  and tramples it under foot.  Clause 48 of the Act provides  that any officer of the lav/, provincial or local, may at anytime  and without a warrant, forcibly  break into the home of any citizen if he has the merest information or least idea that the occupant of the house possesses  liquor. Not only may he break  into the home, but, having entered, he may forcibly break  open any closet, chest, box or  receptacle in the house.  The question as to whether  such methods are in accordance  with British traditions and custom will be answered at once Ly  one little word which contains  only two letters.  Another fundamental rule oi  British life is that when a man  is attacked through the process  of law he has the right to know  who is behind the prosecution.  This just and time-honored custom is absolutely thrown overboard by clause 29 of the Prohibition Act. This provides that  when any person get the idea in  his head that a citizen has liquor  in his possession, he can go to a  constable and tell him what he  thinks. On the basis of this  casual conversation the constable  can make complaint and enter a  prosecution in his own name.  The informer runs no risk of his  identity being disclosed as the  Act specifically provides that the  constable need not "Communicate the name of the person giving such information."  What an opportunity this clause  opens up for a man or woman  getting square with a neighbor,  with whom there may be a neighborhood   quarrel,   or   where   a  neighborhood   grudge  exists?  What a  wide  field  this clause  opens  up  for the black-mailer,  that type of person despised by  all  honorable   men ?     And  yet  such  methods as these are de-  iberately outlined in the B. C.  Prohibition Act.    Is it any wonder that even ardent Prohibitionists,  who are  also true  British  subjects, are refusing to approve  an Actcontainingsuch un-British  provisions.  Another fundamental rule of  British law is that a man is innocent until he is proven guilty.  The B. C. Prohibition Act seeks  to overthrow this firmly established principle, its provisions  stating that when prosecution is  entered against a man on account of his having liquor in his  possession, it is up to the accused peVson to prove that this  liquor was legally acquired and  legally held. In plain English,  this provision means that a man  is guilty until he proves himself  innocent.

The balance of the wards are  uiven over to cases of tuberculosis. Most of the casualties  arrive from France.  It is quite a sight to   be at  Shorncliffe station  and  see an  hospitaltrain arrive.,   Ambulances are there in profusion and  every effort is.made to expedite  the.wounded man to his place in  the hospital.     Let rhe give' a  rough outline .of the procedure;  Red Cross ('voluntary') men and  military "ambulance^ men are on  the platform,   with' stretchers,  blankets -and   pillows awaiting  the train.'   As each patient is  carried out he is laid on the platform or in a waiting-room, where  girls .are ready with hot drinks  and the preachers ascend to their  proper dignity and- tender the  ever-welcome cigarette,~the pati-  ent.-is then carefully placed in  the ambulance which- conveys  him to the;-hospital.-   -Here he is  met by\an officer who_is named  the admitting officer, who.diag-  nbses'the.case^flrid the patient is  sent to a ward which deals with  such cases as his.-   His trench-  soiled clothes are taken from him  and he is given a wash and some  refreshment.    It is well to notice  how each patient has some little  curio, a souvenir, the picture of  his girl, his wife, that he keeps  ���������his eye on and retains.    The loss  of this troubles him more than  the   permanent   result ,of .the  wpund he bears.  He receives treatment in. accordance with his complaint and  takes all that comes in a more  cheerful spirit  than one is "  clined to believe if not personally observed.   -Crutches, walking  sticks and invalid chairs are in  profusion.    It is good to see the  boys out on :the sea, front recounting   their - experiences   to  each other.    The patients have  their recreation  rooms and all  that is good, "but the necessary  discipline in "a military hospital  is trying to the men.    As soon  as the men become convalescent  they.are moved to convalescent  homes,  which' are also run by  Canadians, and there are many  in this county of Kent.  Our friends (?) the Huns-make  lots of raids over this sea front,  but up to present have done no  damage.to our little part of the  world. Air day yesterday we  could hear'the rumble of guns  in France. Only 22 miles of  water separate us from Calais  and thus the sound reaches us  easily.       -  We have strong expectations  of the war ending this year and  the North Bentick Arm will look  good to a few of, us over here.  Best wishes to all who know me  in Bella Coola Valley. I expect  and hope there will be.a rush  from Bella Coola to join the  Scandinavian regiment.  Pte. Chas. Lord,  524 555 C. E.
