The  vesselwas steaming at full speed  and struck with such force that  the bottom of the ship was completely ripped open.  The ''State of California" left  Seattle with fifty-four passengers on Wednesday the 13, picking up twenty-two more at Prince  Rupert, Ketchikan, Petersburg,  Wrangell and other points, and  all these were aboard the vessel  at the time of the disaster.  Only forty-three persons are  known to have been rescued,  these having been taken to Juneau by the steamer Jefferson.  The remainder of those on board  have probably perished, as most  of the passengers and crew were  in their staterooms. Seven of  the crew were killed at time of  the vessel striking. The purser  is uncertain how many passengers were aboard the ship, as all  records, together with mail, express and all such' matter went  to the bottom with the ship.

A Vexed Question  The Prince Rupert Journal announces in a recent issue that  the farmers of Bella Coola Valley  have been .laboring under wrong  impressions as to. facilities for  the shipping of produce to Prince  Rupert.  Mr. B. F. Jacobsen, representing Bella Coola before the agricultural commission, repeated a  .complaint that has on several,  occasions found expression in  our columns���������the lack of transportation between this place and  Prince Rupert.  In this regard we-are now informed by^the agent for the C.  P. R. at Prince Rupert, Mr. Mc-  Nab, that admirable arrangements have lately been made  whereby the Bella Coola farmers  are permitted.to 'ship produce by  the Princess Beatrice which  steamer will convey said produce  to Alert Bay and there unload it  onto the Cannery wharf to be  picked up by the Skagway steamer on'her way north, and also  that we are further favored by  affreight rate of $3.50 per ton,  instead of $5 per ton from Vancouver, which is more than  double the.distance.   .  All this is very pleasant reading, especially to Mr. McNab and  possibly  some   other people in  Prince Rupert, and for their further benefit we may inform them  that the .Union Steamship Company are going even one better.  By the latter company's steamers  the produce would not have to  travel so far by several hundred  miles, the transhipment; taking  place at Namu instead of Alert  Bay.  o    o    o     o     o  The .people of Bella Coola are  not anxious to ship their produce  up and down the coast in order  that it should ultimately arrive  at Prince Rupert.  What the farmers here require  is a means whereby their produce  will reach Prince Rupert without  transhipment at any way port,  and we feel safe in saying that  no other arrangements will be  accepted as satisfactory.  The Journal is correct in its  statements that Bella Coola potatoes have a reputation of being  as good as those grown in Ash-  croft. Our farmers are proud  of the quality of their produce and are naturally desirous  that such produce as they may  ship to Prince Rupert should  reach there in good order, hence  their desire to avoid transhipment.  In last week's issue, the Courier  published a letter from J. E. Griffith, public works engineer, to J.  W. Macfarlane; in regard to a  claim for damages from the government by Charles Lord of Bella Coola.  The facts of the case have already 'been stated in the Courier  and are understood too well to  need repetition.  Mr. Griffith remarks "that in  view of the fact that it is not  customary to fence the wharves  in different points of the Province���������the 'Department decline  to pay this claim. "J ���������  It would appear, he says', "that  if the claimant could not see.the  side of the wharf, he would be  in the same position when he got  to the end, which I presume is  not fenced in like a corral."  We would mention for the information, of Mr. Griffith, that  Charles Lord did not fall from  the wharf either at the side, or  the end, but from off the approach to the wharf at a point  some half mile from the wharf  proper.  Whether customary or not, the  approach to the wharf has been  fenced for nine years, and a  small portion oi the rail had  been taken down by a foreman  in charge of the wprk of repairs  of the wharf who for some reason  of his own chose to unload a  number of piles at this point,  from where at high water they  might be towed to the wharf  where they were to be used.  This rail was not replaced at  night time nor was any warning  given to the public that part of  a fence that had stood for nine  years was missing. .  , Mr." Griffith, with astuteness  altogether remarkable in a person of his position, presumes  that Jthe end of the wharf at  Bella Coola is hot'-fenced in like  a corral.  This would seem to be meant as  a distinctly offensive bit of sarcasm, casting aspersion on the  people of Bella Coola.  We would tell Mr. Griffith however, that the fact of the-letters  C. E. (whether they mean civil  engineer or christian endeavor  matters not) being tacked' on to  a person's name does not grant  him a monopoly in the matter of  brains, as is evidenced in the  case of Mr. Griffith himself by  A Logical Result  It is impossible on the part of  anyone interested in the labor  situation in this province to close  his eyes to the. seriousness of the  labor conditions at Nanaimo.  The temper of the men who for  months have been practically  quiescent, is very ugly indeed,  and while serious rioting ;has already occurred, there seems no  immediate possibility of a better  state of conditions prevailing.  In short, the provincial government is now facing the logical  results of a policy towards the  miners which has varied between  indifference and absolute neglect.  During the'last*session of the  legislature the government was  given an excellent opportunity  to intervene in the strike by the  appointment of an arbitration  committee.  In fact Parker Williams, as representative of the miners, offered a resolution in the House,  suggesting the appointment of  two private "members on the  government side and one socialist  to act in that capacity.  This measure was however,  turned down by the government  at the instigation of the premier.  Can It be Possible  Can it be possible that Australia is seeking closer trade relations with the United States as  a cable dispatch from London  tells us?  Can it be possible that Australia can so far forget its duty to  the British Empire' as to want to  do business with Uncle. Sam?  . Can it be possible that Australia, which is held up to Canadians  as the very perfection of Empire  loyalty, should desire to do anything so traitorous as barter with  the Americans?  Can it be possible that Australia, recreant in the duty it owes  to the flag, is willing to sell its  British, birthright for a mess of  pottage.? ...''���������  Then ;the days of the great  British Empire are numbered.  The "majesty of the British name  is disappearing for ever. Oh,  what a tale of woe!  Afraid  The government newspapers at  Ottawa are saying that there  will be no redistribution bill introduced this year, the reason  given being that the whole,basis  and system of parliamentary representation may be changed as a  result of the conference of the  provincial premiers which is due  to take place at the capital in  September. * >  Is that the real reason? Everyone knows that ���������whatever conclusion the provincial premiers  may arrive at, there can be no  change in the basis of representation without a change in the  British North America Act, and  to make such a change would  take so much time, that the probability is that Mr. Borden and  party, will not be in power when  the change can legally be brought  about.  The truth is that Mr. Borden  is afraid to go to the country-  either with or without passing a  redistribution bill, but those who  are in control of the party machine realize that every extension  ;'of ^he franchise "means so much  lost ground.  Mr. Borden's strength lies in  the East.    A measure of redistribution would give to the West  a far more potent voice in nation- j  al affairs and there is no doubt  that that voice would be emphatically on the side of Liberalism.  -  That  is quite   understood at  Ottawa, and if the redistribution  bill is shelved it'is simply because the government is afraid  to go to the country in the face  of the larger vote it will create.

Mr.  Clements appears to have contributed something new (in his  Bella Coola speech) to Mr. Bor-  Iden's naval contribution proposal,  Ibut whether the statement that  1 ^contribution was notintended  "5 anything "further than a loan,  lakes it more acceptable to anyone is another matter.  We take it that everyone has  feeling that Canada is under  in obligation to assist the mother  fcountry  in   policing   the   trade  routes of the world, and we re-  iii-e no apology from our public  men for any honest endeavor at  [discharging that obligation.  Mr. Borden did what  laid  in  tis power to contribute $35,000,-  100   of   Canadian   money,   the  string attached was that it should  ie used to construct three first-  fclass ships.    As he did this to  meet an "emergency", and as he  did not propose to design, build,  man, or keep the ships in repair,  n fact-do anything other than  proposal, is that present sources  one who has had opportunities  of comparing prices in tree trade  and protective countries, l.ml it.  is mentioned to show that even  the dear friends who wined and  dined Mr. Borden so royally  while he was gathering the information and inspiration which  brought forth his contribution  proposal, are not in financial  despair.

The facts are thatneither Great  iritain or any nation in history  [as ever been as strong financially as Great Britain is today.  ������With a revenue of a billion dollars,' she is spending this year  ie hundred million dollars in  >cial reform work, (where Can-  la is spending hardly a dollar,)  let last year she had a surplus  If ������3,000,000.

In meeting  this they now propose that certain local rates producing ������75,  000,000 should be reduced one i  third, that a land tax of one  penny in the pound be imposed  on ground rental values, which  is estimated to produce ������25,000,-  000 annually.  Thus we see just who was under fire when   Mr. Borden discovered the "emergency" on the  horizon and came so gallantly to  the rescue.     Does  it not seem  that no mere monetary contribution can discharge this obligation  of ours?    Does it not go further  and deeper than what we may  owe the mother country herself?  Is  it not  a  part of  the white  man's burden to assist in saying  "thou shalt not" when less fortunate fellow  beings are being  trampled under.  ���������. It may suggest, itself to some  vainds   the   "emergency"   was;  really the joker in the pack, that \  Mr.   Borden   had   discovered a j  serious   doubt   in   some   British j  minds with  which   he  came in j  contact as   to   the   underlyingj  loyalty of a certain element that  were largely dictating things in  his government, and that he pVo-  BUSINESS CARDS  Mineral Claims Sub-Dioisions,  &c.  7 own Sites Underground  limber Limits Surceding  All l^inds of Engineering Work.
