German Advance Repulsed by Belgians  BATTLE BECOMES VERITABLE BUTCHERY  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  London, Aug. 20.���������Despatches from Ghent, Belgium, says, a  heavy engagement took place yesterday, the fighting being extremely hot.  The Germans have gained bothbanksof the river Meuse and are  in contact with the allied forces. The enemy finding all routes to  the southward strongly held, discovered an opening to the north.  The Belgian army is retiring towards Antwerp. " Large German  forces continue to cross the river Meuse between Liege and Namur.  The situation in Belgium is developing rapidly and heartrending  scenes of desolation are reported.  Official despatches from London say the German aimy anticipated pushing in great haste towards Brussels. They advanced regardless of heavy slaughter, throwing forward heavy masses of  troops and forging their way on by sheer weight of numbers.  The appearance of two German aviators was the intimation that  the Germans, who had been repulsed on the previous evening, intended to renew the attack. Flying low the aviators surveyed the  position then returned to report. Soon afterwards a large force  of German infantry, supported by machine guns and artillery,  opened a fierce attack on the Belgians, who, though far outnumbered, put up a desperate resistance. The troops on both sides  fought like demons and the battle soon became a veritable butchery. Two Belgian regiments who had already distinguished themselves in the forts at Liege, held the invaders in check: for two  solid hours. Both sides were losing heavily when the retreat was  sounded.  Major Jedsen, whose nose had been shot off by a bullet, took  charge of the Belgian rearguard which fought so stubbornly that  Only seven out of their force of 588 men returned to the main body  of the army.

S. Camosun made an un  usually long stay at this port on  Sunday, loading some 3000 cases  of salmon at the local cannery.  Among the incoming passengers by the last steamer from  the south was Miss Barwise who  will occupy the position of teacher in charge at the Hagensborg  School. Miss Barwise has been  until recently engaged at Campbell River, but as there was some  possibility of the school at that  place being suspended she decided to make a change. Mr. P.  Lauritson, secretary of board of  trustees, had no less than twenty-  eight applications, from which  he chose Miss Barwise on account of her experience as a  teacher and her high references.  Mr. Jos. Fall, provincial government engineer, arrived by  the Camosun on Sunday and is  at present registered at the  Grand View Hotel. Mr. Fall is  here for the purpose of permanently locating the route of the  projected road from this place  to Tatla Lake and will be accompanied on his trip by Mr. Frank  Johnson, whose knowledge of  the country and conditions should  prove of great assistance.  Mr. Fell is at present suffering  from an acute attack of neuralgia, in consequence of which he  has been forced to delay starting  on his trip.  Mr. S. A. Fletcher, inspector  of government offices, paid a  visit to this place during the  week.  portunity the occasion will afford  of showing, in a material way,  that this place in common with  the rest of the Dominion is prepared to do its duty.  E. Gyllenspitz, the well known  farmer of the Upper Valley,  visited town during the week,  returning to his ranch on Friday  with a full load of supplies.

New Mexican President  Mexico "City, Aug. 21.- General Carranza entered the city today. His installation as president was the occasion for the  greatest demonstration in the  history of Mexico. Great parade  of soldiers waving flags, and all  manner of decorations are seen  from every building in the city.  Bands playing national airs preceded the arrival of Carranza in  the capital.  Mr. Frank Burroughs returned  from Safety Cove on Sunday.  Among the outgoing passengers by last Sunday's steamer  were, Messrs. B. Townley, J. H.  Blacklin and W. Green who were  bound for Vancouver, there to  join the expeditionary force for  the seat of war.  W. Gunn came through on foot  from the Cariboo, arriving here  on Friday morning. He reports  that Mr. Robert Lowe, with his  survey party, is on the way to  this place and will arrive in a  few days.    F. A.

According  to the buget statement by the  Minister of Finance, Canada's  chief war taxes will be levied  upon spirits, tobaccos, coffee and  sugar. Tariff and excise taxes  will both be increased so as to  bring in additional war revenue  of seven or eight million dollars.  In addition, in order to meet all  expenditures incurred by the war  and otherwise, the national debt  will have to be increased by  over forty millions.  Already several of our neighbors in the valley have responded to the call to arms and have  left to join the various forces  which are shortly expected to  leave for the seat of war.  However willing we may be to  do our share towards keeping  the old flag flying there are many  of us who for one reason or another are debarred from enlisting  for active service. There are  other ways, however, in which  we can show our patriotism, and  discharge our duty to our King  and Empire. There are the sick  and wounded to be cared for.  Hospital ships to be outfitted and  maintained at very great expense. In contributing towards  the funds of the Red Cross Society we can each one do his share  towards alleviating the sufferings of those brave fellows who,  on land and sea, are fighting our  battle, while we are permitted  to follow our daily occupations  in absolute safety.

In accordance with this  policy, District Forester H. S.  Irwin,  who  visited   this   place  during the week, has been given  authority by the Forest Board to  exempt   districts    from   which  patrolmen  have been   removed  from the fire permit provisions  of the Forest Act; annoucement  of such exemptions being made  through the newspapers and by  personal  notice served  on  the  settlers.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 1914.  The Last Great  War?  William Howard Taft, formerly  president of the United States,  writing on the subject of the  great European struggle remarks  as follows:  "One thing I think we can  reasonably count on is that with  the prostration of industry, with  the blow to prosperity, with the  state of flux that is likely to  follow this titanic struggle, there  will be every opportunity for  common sense to resume its  sway; and after the horrible expenditure of the blood of the  best and the savings of the rich  and the poor, the opportunity  and the motive for a reduction in  armament and the taking away  of temptation to further war  will be greatly enhanced."  This prospect of universal dis-  . armament comes as a ray of sunshine in an otherwise dismal  situation. This view of Mr.  Taft's will find many supporters,  yet, it must be recognized that  unless "Wilhelm the impossible"  as he was called by the late King  Edward, is crushed absolutely  and for all time, there can be no  lasting^ peace for Europe, and no  cessation of the armament craze.  Half measures will not satisfy,  ��������� i        * ��������� ���������  the Kaiser must be driven fron^  his throne.  Even then there can be no hope  of disarmament, or of any lasting  peace, until the power of making  war is taken out of the hands of  every autocrat in Europe. In  Great Britain alone of all the  countries of the world has the  monarchial form of government  proved successful. Great Britain  is not embroiled in this war at  the whim of King George, but  solely at the demand of the people  through their representatives in  parliament. The British people  have long realized that the Kaiser was harboring the delusion  that one man could conquer and  rule the world, and that he was  the one man; a supreme egotism  that has brought to a humiliating  end many an autocrat in times  gone bye.  "It is an awful remedy" says  Mr. Taft, "but in the end it may  be worth what it costs, if it  makes this the last great war."  If only it can���������this is the earnest  hope of each and all of us.  Canada's Duty Plain.  The Dominion Must Do Her  Full Share in the  Present Crisis.  There is no difference of  opinion in Canada today as to  the duty of the Dominion in the  present crisis. For many reasons  the people of Canada are hastening to the assistance of Great  Britain. The war is not one of  aggression on the part of Britain  but a war of defence forced upon Britain and her dominions by  the German Emperor.  As a matter of self-interest  Canada must do all in her power  to meet successfullythe possible  attacks from the Empire's foes.  Nor is this all. " ',  Ranged side by side in the conflict are Britain and France, representative of the loftiest ideals  and noblest practice in present-  day civilization, the nations from  which the two great races making up the vast majority of the  Canadian people have sprung.  Though the great accomplishments of other nations are not  to be forgotten, defeat for these  countries would mean a set-back'  to what is best in civilization,  victory the widening of the  bounds of liberty and progress.  For these reasons, if there  were no others, Canada's duty is  plain and there is no difference  of opinion among Canadian leaders or the Canadian people as to  prompt, whole-hearted action in  its fulfilment.  Party differences fade into insignificance in the presence of  the great crisis. The Liberal  leader has declared "a truce to  party strife." Among right-  thinking Canadians it is everywhere recognized that this is not  the time for party divisions,  party debate and party struggle.  Canadian public men and Cana-  newspapers, for the most part,  have recognized this fact and  are proving true to the obligation it imposes upon them to  forget partisanship and remember only the needs of Canada  and the Empire. Unfortunately  there have been a few unworthy  exceptions.  Unable to emulate the patriotic example and press of Britain,  attempts have been made in Canada to engender party feeling at  the threshold of thegreatest crisis  with which the British peoples  have ever been faced. At least  one minister of the crown and  several newspapers have made  such efforts; such conduct invites  reprisals but it is the part of a  true patriotism to. do nothing to  rouse political strife at. a time  when there is heed of a united  front and united action in the  Dominion and throughout the  British Empire.  . In due time effective reply can  be made to present attacks upon  Liberalism, and there can be full  discussion of the course followed  by Sir Robert Borden and his  colleagues in abandoning in the  face of a unanimous resolution  of the House of Commons the  policy, already successfully commenced by Sir Wilfrid Laurier  and his colleagues, of a Canadian  naval service to.be available for  the protection of Canadian coasts  and trade routes and for cooperation in such a crisis as the  present with the other naval  forces of the Empire. There  can be discussion, too, of the  reasons which have led to the  inaction of the Ministry over a  period of three years and the  consequences of that neglect as  they are evident today.  Germans in Canada.  :The Montreal Mail, a newspaper of strong Imperialist tendencies, makes the following  timely appeal:  "'With the war fever running  high throughout the country, it  is timely to call attention to the  fact that Germans resident in  Canada are entitled to courtesy  and respect. Any manifestation  of animosity towards them by  impassion ed individuals or  crowrds should be put down with  emphasis.  "Many German citizens in this  country have left Germany to  escape the harsh customs of overbearing bureaucratic rule and  the military domination to which  the regime of Kaiser William II.  has given rise. Undoubtedly,  many of them will join the forces  raised in Canada to fight for the  British Empire in this war. Let  no abhorrence for the ruthless  man who has involved Europe in  strife blind the eyes of Canadians to the unquestioned  merit  and worth of the thousands of  their German born countrymen,  whose sober, industrious lives  have been spent to build.up this  nation in the past and will be of  so much value to Canada in the  future. A just admiration for  the Germans in Canada is compatible with a just abhorrence of  the German Emperor in Europe."  More Than Friendly Sympathy.  "As a neutral, however, it  must be obvious to all that England's supremacy on the seas is  essential to this nation's well-  being and prosperity���������now as  never before." It is pleasing to  read this sentiment expressed in  the edito rialcolumns of the  Seattle Post-Intelligencer. In  these few brief lines is expressed  something more than mere  friendly sympathy.  Should the British navy lose  command of the sea, it would  not be long before Germany, intoxicated with success, would be  seeking an opportunity of trying  conclusions with the United  States. Sooner or later Berlin  would attempt to assert its sway  in South and Central America.  The United States would be  forced to either throw the Monroe Doctrine completely overboard or clash with Germany.  We who know our neighbors to  the south, know also that the  Monroe Doctrine would not be  abandoned. In order to mam-  tain it, however, the United  States would be compelled to  embark in a competition of warship building, which would greatly retard the nation's progress.  Only by building, the greatest  navy in the world could she  properly protect her immense  coast line. In view of these  things it is easily understood  why our American cousins should  sincerely hope that success may  attend the British fleet in the  present struggle for the supremacy of the sea.  The Kaiser must appreciate his  position. He has sought aid  from Italy, Portugal and Spain,  promising the latter the African  possessions of France as her reward. Each country has turned  him down. They will have nothing to do with the military-mad  potentate.  Saturday, August 22,  Jg^  The Bank of British North America  SAVINGS DEPARTMENT  Accounts opened for amounts of $1 and upwards.

Advertise your Wants in the Courier  While there will undoubtedly  be some who will say it is too  early to anticipate, it is nevertheless probable that at the conclusion of the present war many  people of the European countries  will cast their eyes longingly towards the British Dominions  overseas. It may reasonably be  supposed that with business  crippled and prospects not of the  brightest, there will be many  who being forced to make practically a new start will choose to  make new homes across the seas,  where they are taught to believe  success awaits all who are ,not  afraid of honest toil. There is  little doubt that many of these  people will come seeking homes  in British Columbia. The question arises, are we prepared to  receive them? Are we ready to  give them a fair chance?  This province  will   naturally  feel the  effects of the general  financial depression.    Our coast  cities are already overcrowded  until   the   question   of   dealing  effectively with the unemployed  is occupying the minds of our  civic bodies.    It would therefore  be unwise to encourage that class  of immigrant who would only help  to swell the masses in these already congested  areas.     What  British Columbia requires is an  influx of agriculturists; men who  will go to the land and produce  what is required for consumption  in our cities.    That there will be  large numbers   of   such  immigrants there can be no question,  but again what are we going to  do with them?   We know that  there remains very little agricultural land in the southern part  of the province adjacent to our  large cities.    We know also that  only in the North is there any  great   amount   of   arable   land  awaiting settlement.    We know  also to our great sorrow, and to  the lasting disgrace of those responsible, that the greater portion of our best and most accessible land has been   ruthlessly  handed over to speculators who  are holding it from use, in an  endeavor to obtain a big price  when the right time arrives.  The neglect of the government  in failing to open up the fertile  areas in the North, can no longer  be looked upon merely as an argument used by the Liberals of  the province against theMcBride  administration. It is a fact  proven by the utterances of the  Attorney-General to whose usual  placid countenance the blush of  shame was brought, when he  was confronted with a man who,  unable to get good land near the  line of railway, had been forced  to settle thirty miles away from  anywhere, without a road or  even a trail. This was only one  of hundreds of such cases which  the Attorney-General must have  noticed in the recent journey-  ings. At least it must be admitted that conditions in the North  must be pretty bad when even  our Mr. Bowser feels ashamed.  Sir Richard wants the people to  settle the land first and he  promises to give them roads and  trails later. Just how much  later he does not say. This is  the policy which has kept the  North  from   developing.     The |  <0M  KM  KO  country must be opened up before settlers can be expected to  occupy the land.  The thought comes, if the interests of the North had not  been sacrificed for the benefit of  the South. If the North during  the last six years had administered its own affairs. If our  huge revenues could have been  used for the building of roads  and trails through our fertile  lands, instead of for the building  of automobile roads in the south  for the sport'of tourists. Instead  of building palatial offices for  the agent-general in London.  Instead of keeping up a horde of  useless officials whose benefit to  society is very problematical.  How different things might have  been in the North today.  The reason for the government's neglect of the North is  not difficult to determine. Vancouver and Victoria with their  adjacent districts return sixteen  men out of a total of forty-two.  The large majority of the votes  lie to the South. All a government has to do to keep in power  (and that is Sir Richard's avowed ambition) is to cater to the  largest number of votes, and  that is what has been done in  the. past, and will be done in the  future. Should the South be  denied even the most unreasonable request they might kick  over the traces and that would  mean the end of the McBride  government. That is the situation in a nutshell, deny it who  can. Under present conditions  can we give the newcomer, be  he the man we so urgently require, namely, the agriculturist,  a fair chance. Mr. Bowser says  we are not doing it. There must  be a change and it cannot reasonably be expected from the present government, who after  twelve years are compelled to  admit failure and shame.

Mr. Irwin has received word  from Victoria 'that the fire situation in the southern part of the  province has been worse this  summer than any previous season in the last two decades, not  excepting the years 190S and  1910, and that the Fqrest Branch  has been under exceptionally  heavy expenditures in fighting  'fires':"in the Kootenays, Okana-  gan and North Thompson Districts, and also on the lower  coast. The fund of money which  isssfc aside for fire fighting purposes and which, if not needed  for fires, is used for building  trails, telephone line and cabins,  has been practically exhausted  and theonly chance of constructing needed improvements is by  taking the forest guards from  patrol duty and assigning them  to improvement work.  The second entertainment, under the auspices of the local  branch of the "W. C. T. U., was  held at the Mackenzie School on  Friday last week, Rev. W. H.  Gibson presiding. The program,  which was of the usual high-class  nature, included items by Mes-  dames D. C. Balfour, B. F. Jacob -  sen, S.'Le C. Grant; Misses  Hardy and Westwood, the two  last named ladies being visitors  to the valley. The entertainment  throughout was of an extremely  enjoyable nature and reflected  great credit on all who took part.  The medal contest for local elocutionists brought forth splendid  efforts from several local youths  and again the task undertaken  by the judges proved to be no  sinecure. After a comparison  of notes, Master Harold Tucker  was declared winner of the  handsome medal, which was  duly presented by Mrs. Livingstone with a few appropriate  remarks. .  (Elturrij Ntftir?

In accordance with this notice settlers may set out  fires without first obtaining a permit therefor from a  forest officer. They are not, however, relieved from  responsibility for keeping fires under control and within the boundaries of their land, and will be held responsible for damage committed should the fire escape  to adjoining property.
