C, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13,  1913.  $1.00 a Year  Japanese Immigration  Showing an Increase  Many Women From Oriental Kingdom  Brought to Canada,in Last  Two Years  Ottawa,   Dec.   11.���������Japanese  fimmigration, as well as the Hin-  fdu movement to Canada, is showing signs of increasing, and close  tab is .being kept on the growing  influx of people from the Flowery  Kingdom.        For  the first six  months ;of the fiscal year 571  Japanese immigrated to Canada.  Of this number no less than 289  were females,   while 235 were  males.  There were also children.  In the last few years there has  been a growing number of Japanese women coming to Canada,  ! which to those who are opposed  to Oriental  immigration  in  all  forms is not viewed with enthusiasm. ��������� ,..'���������  Experimental Farm  For Bulkley Valley  Fisheries For  White Men Only  Asiatics to Be Eliminated Says H.C.

"The  Dominion government has made'  provision that 600 licenses to fish  ��������� . l  on the Skeena, Naas and others  rivers of the north shall be issued j  only to white men. 'Within five  or six years it will be possible to  eliminate the Asiatic from our  fishing industry and place it entirely in the hands of white fishermen.  Asiatics in our, p r evince  at the present time could be put  on the land or in some other occupation," said Mr. H. S. Clements, member of the Federal  House for Comox-Atlin, at a  recent meeting of Ward VI Conservatives.  Fighting in Northern Mexico Practically Over  Constitutionalists to Restore Civil Government  Juarez, Mexico, Dec. 11.���������That the days of fighting in Northern  Mexico are numbered, so far as the present revolution is concerned,  is the opinion expressed by rebel leaders.  What most immediately interests the so-called Constitutionalist  party now is the elaboration of its civil government. There remains to be put in force a uniform currency system, as now both  rebel and federal imney is in circulation. The leaders say that a  government will shortly be in operation in the northern half of the  country, which will be entirely detached fromthat at Mexico City.

Woman Invents  Sleep Bomb  Dresden, Saxony, Dec. 11.���������  The Saxony war minister has  beeiutesting a recently invented  powder which produces stupefaction. It is claimed the gas  from a single bomb has thrown  several hundred men into deep  sleep lasting seven or eight hours.  The inventor is a woman, Ida  Boechm, and the Prussian military authorities have asked her  to go to Berlin to demonstrate  the efficiency of her invention.  The SS. Chelohsin arrived on! up to now occupied quarters in  Sunday morning with an unusually large consignment of Christmas goods for the local merchants.  Included among the passengers  for'this port were: Mesdames  A. C. Christenson and P. Lauret-  son. The Misses Elbro. Messrs  E. Wheeler, A. C. Christenson,  W. Coleman, E. H. Edwards,  Phelps and Langill.  The B. C. A. A's First  Appearance  The Bella Coola Athletic Association was responsible for a capital evening's entertainment at  the Colony Hall, Hagensborg, on  Thursday evening. Mr. H. W.  M. Rolston, president, in the  chair.  The proceedings commenced  with an exhibition of basket-ball,  the Lower Bella Coola team being-  opposed by a scratch team from  Hagensborg. The game was fast  and never lacking in interest  from Start to finish, and resulted  in a win for Lower Bella Cnola  team by a handsome margin of  points. The winners showed  themselves to be a well balanced  lot and with practice will be hard  to beat.  Following on the basket-ball  game, a capital musical program  was rendered. Miss Pecknokl  sustained her reputation as a talented elocutionist, while the selections of the Hagensborg quartette were greatly appreciated.  Mr. Crichton's cleverly-rendered  violin-cello selections were received with well-merited applause  which on each occasion drew an  encore. Mrs. S. Le C  ted as accompanist.  Exhibitions on the punching-  bag were given by Messrs. F.  Luellyn, .1. lloage and 11. Burt  all of whom are clevercxpononls.  The secretary. Rev. T. C. Colwell, briefly outlined the objects  of the association, ami an enjoyable evening was brought to a  close.  Mesdames Christenson and  Lauretson have returned from a  trip to Vancouver.  Mr. Christenson brought with  him a.large and varied assortment of X'mas goods.  Ed. Wheeler landed his man di  New Westminster safely and has  now received his discharge as  special constable.  E. H. Edwards has returned  from a short trip to Vancouver.  Mr. Edwards had the misfortune  to lose his pocket book containing a considerable sum of money.  Mr. G. K. Burnett, B.C.L.S.,  left on the last south-bound boat  for his home in New Westminster, after having completed the  survey of a piece of property  situated some five miles up the  valley, lately purchased by the  Pacific & Hudson Bay Railway  Company.  The secretary of the Bella  Coola Development League reports being in receipt of numerous enquiries regarding Bella  Coola, the prices of land, etc.,  from intending settlers, which  tends to show the probability of  a big influx into this valley during next summer.  Mr. Wm. Graham of The Crossing visited town during the  week.  Pan McCloskey and Emery  Grazier came in from South Ben-  tick on Monday last for the purpose of transacting some legal  business and obtaining supplies.  THE JAIL IS COMPLETED  The constable's quarters and  lock-up. which has been under  construction for some time past.  is now completed saving the  painting of the inside, which is  at present, being rushed by ex-  Grant ac-! jK>rt. workmen.  | The painting of the outside of  the building is to be left over  until spring.  Constable Broughton, who has  the bank building, removed to his  new quarters during the week  and will soon be comfortably  installed.  The building though small presents a very good appearance,  and constable Broughton is much  pleased with the provisions made  for his comfort.  As to how the accommodation  provided for bad-actors will coincide with their ideas of comfort  remains yet to be ascertained.  Mr. Frank Robinson and Miss  Cora Robinson, a popular young  local couple, were married on  Monday. The ceremony was  perfoi*med by Rev. T. C. Colwell.  High winds played havoc with  the telephone and telegraph  wires in the valley. On Tuesday  night large trees were uprooted,  and in more than one instance  came near to demolishing buildings.  According to Mr. M. W. Marvin of Constantia Ranch, Atnarko, who arrived in town on  Wednesday, the road between  Hagensborg and The Crossing is  strewn with trees.  A sick man from Atnarko who  was being brought to town for  medical attention was held up a  whole day before the road could  be sufficiently cleared to enable  a wagon to pass.

This has become one of the  local events of the year, the  originality of the various forms  of entertainment arranged by  the Indians with the assistance  of Rev. W. H. Gibson, being always a source of pleasurable  surprise.  As announced last week the  entertainment at the Lower Bella  Coola School will take place on  Friday 26.  The people of Hagensborg,  whose entertainments are always  notable for a high standard of  excellence, have chosen Saturday  27, for their X'mas festival, to  which all are cordially invited.  Given good weather and enough  snow to allow of good sleighing  and there will be few dull hours  during X'mas week.  The people at The Crossing,  not to be outdone, are also arranging an entertainment to take  place on Saturday 27.

Collard who left  this place some time ago to take  up a ranch in the Peace Paver  country.  Mr. Collard, writing from  Peace River Crossing, Alta.,  says that the roads had been in  such bad condition during the  summer, owing to excessive rain,  that very little freight had been  brought in, so that at time of  writing (November 3) there was  a shortage of provisions and no  stores.  The weather having turned  cold the roads were drying rapidly and it was expected that  freight would soon be moving.  Mr. Collard had just returned  from Lake Saskatoon where he  had been supervising the construction of a flour mill, and intends spending the winter on his  ranch.  The writer remarks on the  rapid rate at which the country is  being settled, stating that hundreds of claims have been taken  up in that part of the country  since his arrival.

''-' The .management wishes to announce  to the  readers  of the  Courier ; thai [there will be no  .paper  issued from Jhis   office,  during Christmas week-  Mr. Manson Knows  :   /: Better  .-...'A perusal of .the editorial col-  urns, of'the Prince Rupert Nevrs  leads us to believe that the Conservative .organ in that city has  endeavored to disparage the criticisms, of the. Courier in regard to  ihe expenditure of public money  appropriated- for roads, bridges,  etc., at<Bella Coola. ,':'���������  It appears-that the Conservative organ,. Jn expressing Mr.  Manspri's view of the matter,  infers:that the dissatisfaction in  \ Bella \ Coola is solely on account  of the fact that the roads are not money,  built faster.  If this is Mr. Manson's explanation, we desire to say here and  now that it is wrong, and well  Mr. Mansons knows that it is  wrong. ��������� We do not say that if  the money was properly expended in the right places that the  roads would not be built faster,  that is a foregone conclusion,  but we do claim that we are not  receiving, and for a long time  past have" not received, proper  value for the money expended.  We claim that useless and unnecessary work has been done.  We have repeatedly given specific instances and are prepared  to do so again anytime Mr. Man-  son so desires.  OOOOO  TheGourier has just received  information from a reliable  source that the Conservatives in  the neighborhood of The Crossing have decided to hold no more  club meetings, as their suggestions or recommendations never  receive the slightest consideration.  Here is discontent, but not  only on the grounds that roads  are not being bnilt fast enough,  but because of the autocratic  methods persistently followed by  the road superintendent and just  as persistently tolerated by Mr.  Manson.  It is useless for Mr. Manson to  try to make people believe that  he does not thoroughly understand conditions at Bella Coola,  and instead of foolishly endeavoring to minimize our grievances  it would be well if he set himself  out to remedy some of them.  The Machine  Bribery, intimidation andBow-  serism. have prevailed, and W.  W. Foster the government candidate for the Islands constituency is elected by a substantial  majority.  ' 'If you want good roads, vote  for Foster."  ,  "If you want good wharves,  vote for Foster."  "If you want a business man,  vote for Foster."  ��������� These are the sort of promises  that won the seat for Mr. Foster.  It is really remarkable how  easily the people are fooled.  The following letter from Mr.  Percival, a prominent Conserva-,  tive, to Capt. Maude the Independent    candidate,   describing  the nomination convention speaks  for itself:  "We put up a good fight  amongst us, but the gambling  crew that we were opposed to  were playing with marked cards  all through. It is a shameful  advertisement to the world at  laJge, that this constituency cannot elect one of their own residents to represent them in public  life. The unscrupulous methods  practised on behalf of Mr. Foster  all through gives onetheimpresr  sion that they would not stick at  anything."  A strong denunciation of the  government machine methods,  but strange to say this same Mr.  Percival appeared "later on Mr.  Foster's platform opposing the  very man to whom he wrote the  above letter. The machine got  him and he was compelled to  change his tactics.  Sun of December 2.  This correspondence shows  that at the election of 1911 seven  men were paid $10 each and  numbers of others were paid  their expenses from Vancouver  in order that they should vote  in Victoria.  . The electors of the Islands have  been fooled by promises, which  if carried out, only means that  they are bought with their own  To borrow a phrase from Mr.  Percival, "it is a shameful advertisement to the world at  large."  ooooo  That the methods of the Conservative /machine in this province, though devious, are not  past finding out is made apparent  in the correspondence of the secretaries of -the Vancouver and  Victoria Conservative Associations published in the Vancouver  The Logical Course.  The report of Alexander Lucas,  the agricultural commissioner on  his recent visit'to Australasia is  indeed an interesting document.  While it contains no recommendation (that being the business  of the commission itself) it distinctly points out that the only  logical course'for the commission  to pursue, is to advise the immediate adoption of the methods  tried and found satisfactory  across the' Pacific as might be  applied here.  Dealing particularly with the  colonization policy of New Zealand, Mr. Lucas found that up to  1893 the progress of land settlement and ^agriculture had been  so unsatisfactory, that it was  realized that unless some decisive  steps were taken bankruptcy was  inevitable^. '  Accordingly in 1894 legislation  providing1; guaranteed  loans  to  ���������"J '���������,  settlers wks enacted.  The effect was almost immedi-  ate. Witn money available on  suitable terms large areas have  been brought under cultivation  whidh would otherwise have remained untouched; the farmers  have adopted an improved standard of living, and the industry  has been.placed on so profitable  a basis that the farmers find no meeting payments on  mortgages, there having been  only thirty-five foreclosures in  eighteen-years.  The per-capita area of land under cultivation has been trebled,  and New Zealand is today a  heavy exporter of farm products  as a consequence of her enterprise.  The Liberal party in the province has for years included cash  advances to settlers as one of the  important planks in their platform, and it would appear now  that there is little choice left to  the commission but to advocate  the speedy adoption of this policy.  According to Premier Mc-  Bride's own showing there is ap  proximately $13,000,000 owing to  the province on account of land  sales, and most of this money  has been owing for some years.  Had the payment of this money  been enforced, and the same  money granted in cash loans to  settlers, it would have done much  to encourage the agricultural industry which has become so decadent throughout the province.  Sir Richard deplores the fact  that the revenues are not flowing  in as plentifully as desired.  Public works throughout the  province were closed down before the appropriations were  more than half spent.  If the province is owed $13,-  000,000, is it not high time that  some of this money be brought  into the treasury.  Make the land speculator pay  up and let us have our public  works completed.

"All the years I have been living on Salt Spring there has been  a splendid road-grader lying in  the agricultural grounds rusting  and rotting there."���������Rev. G. W.  Dean.  While Sir Richard McBride was  greatly concerned with the affairs of the Empire, events ir.  British  Columbia k were  so bad  that the attention of the British  House of Commons is being called  to them.    Athough in theory the  Imperial Parliament is supreme,  the members are not likely to  countenance   any   interference  with a self-governing province.  At the same time the wide publicity which" will be given to the  incident will show the world that  Sir Richard McBride, in the intervals of caring for the Empire,  might find some work to do in  his own province,.    It will also  be remembered that the time this  trouble was   on   in   Vancouver  Island the Dominion Minister of  Labor carefully left it and went  to England "to study labor conditions."

The Liberal policy is not to waste  time enquiring into conditions  which everybody knows to exist,  but to take prompt steps to apply  the proper remedy by taking the  high duty off foodstuffs. It is  the historic contrast between  Liberal action and Tory inaction.  R. B. Bennett, M.

The British sloop-of - war Shearwater has sailed from Esquimalt  to the Mexican Pacific Coast to  assist in the protection of British  interests. Canadians are prominent among those whose interests  the Shearwater goes to protect.  Esquimalt is the home port of  the Canadian cruiser Rainbow,  and the harbor where that ship,  disarmed and unmanned, now  swings useless at anchor. Those,  on either side of politics, who  think Canada should stop sponging on the Mother Country for  protection of Canadian interests  on theseasand beyond them may  find something strangely and unpleasantly suggestive in the fact  that from a harbor where a Canadian cruiser is doomed to rust  out in idleness by a flag-waving,  drum-beating Canadian ministry,  a little old sloop-of-war, built and  maintained at the expense of the  British taxpayer, has sailed to  take part in the defence of Canadian interests in another part  of this continent. ��������� Edmonton  Bullentin.  ^  'MRS.-J.

The Brockville Times (Cons.)  recently said: "The common-  sense policy is obviously a comparatively small, but effective  modern navy for Canada which  would in case of war automatically go under the control of the  Admiralty." Theonlydifference  between this Conservative paper  and the Liberal naval policy is  the word ' 'automatic". The difference between it and the Borden policy of a $35,000,000 contribution is just-as great as that  between the Government and the  Opposition. Commonsensemust  be with the Liberals.
