Veryschoyle and  Dar'ty arrived in town last Satur-  iay after an extended tour  through the Tatlayoco and Klee-  ia rdeen country, Mr. Verschoyle was inspecting his iron  wldings and making a general  lineralogical and geological survey of the district and is favorably impressed with the possi-  )ilities of opening up an extensive  iron industry. The developments  ���������so far, .he-thinks, are satisfactory, and if they continue to be  jso the effects will be far reaching  ���������and should be of great import-  lance to Bella Coola.  Wagon Road Needed  Mr. Verschoyle came through  jfrom Ashcrof t and met a number  tof ranchers and farmers in the  IChilcotin and Tatla Lake country,  (who all expressed a wish that a  vagon road was cut through to  ]Bella Coola.     Mr.  Verschoyle  fsays  there is no doubt that if  Ifruch a road existed Bella Coola  Iwould have, up to the present,  [held the trade of this great district as far east as Alexis Creek,  and even when the P. G. E. is  finished,   would still hold it as  ;far as Tatla Lake.    It would ap-  Ipear to be good business to .push  |on even a rough wagon road to  Ithe head of the Valley as rapidly  fa's possible, as once the plateau  ���������is reached further extension can  be made in any desired direction  at a nominal cost.   This would  do more towards developing trade  for  Bella Coola  than anything  that could be done and would not  be a costly undertaking.  Failure of B.C. Fisheries,  Limited  Had Built Large Plants'  Vancouver, Aug. 28. Failure  of.the B. C. Fisheries, Ltd., is  proving a blow to the North, for  this big concern, headed by Sir  George Doughty, of Grimsby,  had built a very large and pretentious plant at Aliford, a small  harbor off Skidegate inlet on the  Queen Charlotte islands. It was  understood that the big concern  was meeting with success and  the announcement that it had  gone into the receiver's hands  was something of a shock. The  company had constructed a  large cannery and huge fertilizer  plant. A year ago a pack of 25,-  000 cases of salmon was made.  The success of the fishing induced the company, to also build  a dogfish oil plant.  Then the company decided to  try the deep sea fishing and for  this purpose brought out last  winter from Grimsby the steam  trawlers, Triumph and Canada.  In addition to these the American gasoline schooner, Edrie,  was purchased and also smaller  boats. Three months ago the  trawler, lmbricaria, arrived to  fish for the company in northern  British Columbian waters.  S. S.

Divers Unable to Get  Down to Sunken Wreck  Seattle, Aug. 28.���������The divers  who were sent north to explore  the sunken wreck of the steamship State of California, which  was lost in Gambier Bay, Alaska,  will be unable to examine the  vessel because the water in which  she sank is more than 200 feet  deep, and divers cannot work at  a greater depth than 100 feet.  By means of explosives the  wreckage can be shattered, however, and [most of the fourteen  bodies imprisioned in the wreck  may be recovered.  Advices received from Juneau  say that all of the survivors who  were taken to the hospitals there  are recovering rapidly, and soon  will be able to leave for their  homes.

A Question to Consider  By C. A.  Vancouver Office - - 317-323 Cambie St.  '^alita popult mtpnmut rst lex."  SATURDAY, AUGUST 30, 1913.  A Great Opportunity  The forthcoming Agricultural  and Industrial Exhibition to take  ��������� place .at Prince Rupert next  month, notice of which appears  in this issue of the .'Courier, has  a greater significance than many  ��������� persons would perhaps imagine.  Too" many people have an altogether wrong   impression   of  Northern British Columbia, and  .; this exhibition will demonstrate  to these people the vast resources  : of this portion of the province,  .in a manner which is inimitable  by any other mode of advertising.  We who live in the northern  portion,of the province, know  full well the productiveness of  our soil and the immense natural  .resources in the way of mineral,  . timber and fisheries, which in  due time are bound to bring  world wide recognition- to this  country.  " The fact of we ourselves knowing these things will, however,  tend but little towards the early  development of such resources,  so that it therefore behoves us  to do all .m our power to bring  to the notice of the public, far  and wide, the all important fact  that in Northern British Columbia great opportunites are awaiting the capitalist or the settler.  In this connection the Courier  urges, upon all local farmers the  importance of sending a large  exhibit of local produce to Prince  Rupert on the occasion of the  ^forthcoming exhibition'; an exhibit, which being thoroughly  representative of the produce  of the Valley, will be a credit to  the local farmers and to Northern  British Columbia.  The Prince Rupert - exhibition  is being extensively advertised,  and there is little doubt that September 24 to 26 will be red-letter  days in the history of this part  of the province.   There will be  present people from great distances; people who, under ordinary circumstances, would probably never have an opportunity  of seeing Bella Coola farm produce in competition with that of  other parts;   people,   many  of  whom have seldom even heard  of our   beautiful   valley.     Still  more the need for our. farmers  to do their duty by this community and themselves.  When discharging our obligations, it is not improper to choose  the course most favorable to our  interests, when a choice is possible, and we have no quarrel  with those who, favor Mr. Borden's Vdirect contribution  scheme" as being the cheapest,  providing that upon examination  their claims-are found correct!  That the proposed ships can be  built for less money in England,  goes without.saying, this is.also  true respecting a pair of bcots or  a suit of clothing that any of us  might require. This argument  of cheapness, coming as it does  from those who, for thirty-five  years, have fought any proposed  reduction of duties on cheap British goods, as being calculated  to rob the. Canadian working  man, appears rather out of place,  unless we take it as an evidence-  of "eleventh hour" repentance.  That it would require large expenditures for shipbuildingplants  and docks before actual construction could be undertaken in Canada is,also true, but would not  those shipbuilding yards become  a part of our national wealth?  Would it not be foolish to believe that shipbuilders would invest money in those yards without the prospect of securing other  work in addition to the ships  required by the Canadian Government ? Work, by the way,  which now goes outof this country.  The large contracts on naval  construction- enabled British  builders to put down plants and  develop methods-of construction  that lead the world today, either  in class of workmanship or cost  of ships turned put. The yards  and docks are also available for  repairs in cases of accident, to do  JL  "'"v" mi  wmmmmm  ���������|\ f 11 cosi.you more NOT to Paint |  your- house than it will to paint it.

British Columbia  B  the work quickly and at low cost, J builders went before Mr. Borden  thus reducing the cost of insur- in Ottawa requesting,  "that as  ance against accident.  It might surprise, some of our  good people in Northern B.C.,  who look upon steamship companies as robbers, to learn: that  for every dollar paid for transportation, about ten cents goes  for insuranceoni: the: ship alone.  This apparently exorbitant- rate  is brought about largely through  the heavy cost of repairs in cases  of accident. The cost of this  class of repair work has necessarily to be sufficient to cover the  greater part of the cost of maintenance of our ;yards, and also  the interest charges on the capital invested therein, and this  cost must necessarily be' high  owing to the absence of possible  construction work.  Speaking, in Vancouver last  winter, Mr. Bowser said, "Lau-  rier's talk about building ships  in Canada is nothing but a bid to  the grafters.'' Three weeks later  a delegation of Canadian ship-  British built ships were being  brought into Canada fully equipped and free of duty, that shipbuilding material required for  the construction of ships in Canadian yards should be admitted  to this country free of duty, or  that the duty on same should be  refunded,", claiming that present  conditions discriminated against  Canadian builders to the extent  of twenty per cent.  After considering the request,  Mr. Borden replied that he could  not see his way to granting any  assistance as requested, but  would promise that future vessels required by the government  would be built in Canada, which  reply, if not a "bid to the grafters," was a bid for them to become grafters, while refusing a  most just and reasonable request.  So it may be true that cheapness in first cost, like the line of  least resistance, may prove costly in the long run.  Bella Coola needs a direct  steamboat' service between this  port and Prince Rupert. Local  farmers have long recognised  this fact, so has the Courier, and  now the people of Prince Rupert  are beginning to recognise it.  What is required now is that our  farmers should take advantage  ofth'is great opportunity afforded  by the forthcoming exhibition,  and by sending their best, and  plenty of it, show once and for  all time, that the advantage of  a direct steamer service to Prince  PROJECTED ROUTE OF THE PACIFIC & HUDSON BAY RAILWAY.

Men's Furnislii  ry Goods  The Swing of the Pendulum  Since  the  Dominion   election  fthere have been elections in six  lout of the nine provinces of Can-  It r        ���������  iada.    The first was in Ontario,  jwhere the Liberals won twice as  Smany seats as in the Dominion  selection   three   months   before.  sThen came Quebec, where Liber-  |al government was returned with  scarcely more than a trace of the  Imposition left.    New Brunswick  followed and   remained  in  the  Cory ranks under the influence  |of Hon. Mr. Hazen, with promises  |of bountiful federal expenditures,  Fwhile the diminutive Province of  Prince Edward Island was captured   by  the  Tories   with   the  promise of a steam  ferry con-  [ nection with the main land.  Next  came   Saskatchewan,    with   its  overwhelming Liberal majority,  despite the manipulations of Hon.  Mr. Rogers, closely followed by  Alberta, with its strong preference of Liberal members in spite  of federal influences.    In face of  the brazen methods of the Borden government to interfere in  provincial politics, the results in  the provinces are amply sufficient  loshow that the pendulum of time  is swinging, as it is to be expected in a young country, on toward Liberal principles.
