C, SATURDAY, AUGUST 9,  1913.  $1.00 a Year  Government Expert  Entertains High  Opinion of the Valley  Mr. A. H. Tomlinson, provincial government horticulturist,  interviewed by a representative  of the "Courier" on the occasion  of his recent visit to Bella Coola  Valley, says:  "It has been a source of much  surprise to me to see how  far  fruit and vegetable raising has  advanced in  Bella Coola.    Expecting to find agricultural pursuits still in  the  experimental  stage 1 have seen  fruits of the  finest quality being successfully  grown. , Most of the best quality  apples such as Gravenstein, Delicious,   Wealthy,   etc.,  are  the  picture of health, while of stone  fruits, cherries are doing particularly well, leaving no doubt in  my mind that given proper attention as regards  the  correct  methods of cultivation as suggested by the Department there remains no cause for failure."  Speaking of the small fruits  Mr. Tomlinson described the  raspberries and gooseberries as  par excellence.  Cereal crops throughout the  Valley struck him as first rate,  one particular field of wheat attracting his special attention.  Mr. Tomlinson also gave assurance that al 1 ki nds of vegetables can be raised to perfection.  Stock Raising  Speaking of stock raising,  which Mr. Tomlinson pointed  out was essential to successful  farming, there is a move on foot  by the government to supply  blooded stock to the various outlying farming communities, and  suggests that the Bella Coola  farmers bear this in mind.  Samples of"Rich Ore  Brought Into Town  Several fine lookingsamplesof  ore have been brought to town  by the Stick Indians from the  Interior.  One sample of peacock copper  looks particularly good and according to the Indian a large  body of similiar stuff is to be  found at no great distance from  the projected line of the Pacific  & Hudson Bay Railway.  A great portion of the country  traversed by these. Indians has  never been prospected by white  men, and judging by the samples  which are brought out from time  to time by the natives, there is  little doubt that good mineral is  to be found.  Several samples (including the  above mentioned peacock copper)  are in the hands of a well known  townsman who will have them  assayed, and if pronounced good  enough, will in all probability  locate the body and commence  development work.  Premier Wants to  Retire From Office  But Conservative Party Sees No Successor Available  Ottawa,  August G. -Premier  Borden will probably extend his  holidays into September on  medical advice.  He is far from well and is suffering from insomnia and blood  disorders, mainly due to worries  and the constant stress of last  session.  It is stated that Mr. Borden  personally wishes to retire from  the premiership, but at present  his party sees no successor available.  Canadian Northern  Obtains Money  For Terminals  More Power Given  Interior Minister  Order-in-Council Allows Disposal of  Certain Lands "As He Sees Fit"  Impressed with Timber and Water  Power Available  Mr. Tomlinson expressed himself as much struck with the fine  timber and unlimited water  power which he saw during his  visit, which he says will prove of  great benefit to the Valley in its  course of development.  Mr. Tomlinson will be pleased  to give information on any matter pertaining to horticulture to  any person addressing him to his  offices at Prince Rupert.  Will Go to Norway  London, Aug. 7.

An order in council has been  passed giving the minister of the  ���������interior powers to dispose "as  he sees fit" of any lands deemed  to" be specially valuable in the  railway belt of British Columbia.  This superceedes the old regulation prescribed under the Dominion Lands Act, whereby all  lands in the railway belt could  be disposed of only under a public order in council, requiring the  consent of the other ministers.

Government's Despotic Methods  Recent communications from  this quarter show that in spite  of the protests of the settlers the  state of affairs regarding roads  and trails is not improving, but  rather have the settlers been  given to understand that they  are not to be considered, and that  the government is perfectly satisfied with the way that the public  money is being expended by  those in authority.  Three weeks ago a delegation  of nine influential settlers from  the Stranby district waited on  the government for the purpose  of lodging a protest against the  reckless waste of money occasioned by the incapable road  foreman in that district. The  delegation was courteously received and-told that an engineer  would be sent direct to Stranby  and Fisherman's Bay to inspect  the road work at these points.  In due course the engineer arrived in company with the road  superintendent for the Alberni  district, proceeding by gasoline  launch as far as Bull Harbor  where they spent a couple of  days after which they returned  to Shushartie Bay, walked around  awhile and expressed themselves  as thoroughly satisfied with the  road work at Stranby and Fisherman's Bay and that the roads are  being built exactly where the  government wished them to be  built, and further expressing the  utmost confidence in the road  foreman.  This is an example of the government's lack of consideration  for the settlers, who in thei������r  anxiety for roads naturally resent seeing their road appropriations thrown away by parties  who have not ability enough to  build a decent trapping trail.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 1913:  superintendent a competent of  estimating the cost of a building  of this kind with any degree of  accuracy. Does it necessarily  follow that those in charge of  the construction of government  roads should also be expert at 0f the Bbrdeii naval bill in urging  A Strange Proceedure  It was interesting to read in  several of the papers that came  to hand at our office last week,  that Masset was to have a lockup and constable's quarters similar to that lately completed at  N Bella Coola.  T Knowing that tenders for the  building of the Bella Coola lockup were called for early in the  spring, it is perhaps natural that  people on the outside should imagine that this building has been  completed ere this, but far from  such being the case, the contract  -has not even been awarded, nor  ..do we hear anything regarding  when. construction " is likely to  commence, if ever.  What has happened up to now  is as follows : In May last tenders were invited, but as far as  we know only one local firm put  in a figure on the work.  After considerable delay and  for reasons we are not in a po-  sition to explain, the.tender from  the Bella Coola firm was submitted to, the local superintendent  of roads for investigation.  ....  What his report has been, no  one knows, but there the matter  rests, and while Terrace, Masset  and other places all have jails  completed or under construction  Bella Coola is to have a jail which  will be commenced at some  date in the future, probably at  the discretion of the road superintendent.  Why this delay ? Is it that  the figure submitted by the local  firm is considered excessive ?  Then why not call for new tend;  ers, or make other arrangements  for the immediate commencement of the work? Why hold on  to the certified cheque which accompanied that tender? Are we  to believe that because that one  tender was not considered suitable that we are not to have the  lock-up?  Why, after being accompanied  by a certified cheque as required,  should this tender be submitted  to the road superintendent? We  presume it was done with the  idea of ascertaining as to whether  in his judgment the figure quoted  was a fair one, and if we are right  in our presumption, then the fact  of the delay is certainly evidence  that in the judgment of that  official, that tender should not  be accepted.  Another question that naturally arises, is  whether the road  figuring the cost of a proposed  jail?  Our road superintendent has  never laid any claim to being an  expert builder and has plenty to  attend to without being worried  about jails, and if Hon. Thomas  Taylor and his department are  not satisfied with the tender or  with the name appearing on the  certificate cheque, or even with  the bank on which the cheque  was drawn, let them return the  cheque and make some other arrangements whereby a start will  be made. At present because  someone does not _want Ed.  Wheeler's firm to build the jail,  Hon. Thomas Taylor and his department seem completely stalled  and at a loss what to do (except  hold the certified cheque), and  in the meantime Bella Coola  waits for its jail. How long do  we have to wait?  -Local, opinion has it that the  road superintendent is reserving  the job of building the lock-up  as a winter's work for a few of  the elect.  000*00  It would be interesting to learn  his estimate of the cost of the  proposed building, and probably  more interesting still to compare  that with the actual cost of construction under his supervision'.  OOOOO'  ' It is fairly easy to estimate the  cost of a piece of work when you  have another man's figures to  work on.  OOOOO  Probably had the certified  cheque which' accompanied the  tender borne the name of some  prominent Conservative instead  of the name of a respected citizen of an altogether different  political leaning, the tender  would have been accorded quite  a different reception by the Department of public works.  ' o     o     o     o     o  At any rate, so 'tis said by those  who surely know. No���������we will  not mention any name this time.  THE OPINION IN BRITAIN  Speaking with the permission  of the British admiralty, the  chief member of which is the  Right Hon. Winston Churchill,  so often quoted by the supporters  that measure upon parliament  and the country, Captain Halsey  of the battleship New Zealand,  in an admirable address before  the Canadian club, said:  "Canada,, I know full well, is  going to do something; whatever  she thinks is right; and whatever  shethinks is right the admiralty  I know���������and I have permission  to say so���������win support, whatever it may be. Canada has the  right to choose what she conceives to be the best thing and  it will be supported through  thick and thin by the government at home."  Captain Halsey spoke thus  with the permission of the admiralty. This is important, particularly at: a time - when the  entire conservative press is endeavoring to shame Canada into  surrendering her freedom of  action by -misrepresenting the  feelings which the outcome of  the naval issue has roused in the  old country..,':  o "o' o    o    o  WHAT DOES HE WANT?  j "After viewing that magnificent dreadnought sent by New  Zealand to.the mother country  my blood boils when I think that  because of ;the action of an irresponsible senate, Mr. Hazen^  will have to tell you that we have  not three ships ready for every  emergency. The loyalty, of British Columbians is not an emergency loyalty, but is of a permanent and_lasting character,  because we know thatimperialism  is good business."���������Sir Richard  McBride.  OOOOO  In 1909 Sir Richard wanted a  Canadian navy, j In 1912 he  moved a resolution urging the  Dominion government to provide  immediate naval protection for  the Pacific coast. At the Revel-  stoke convention last fall he expressed the same view in his  address. Now he favors a policy  of contributions. He is no longer  concerned with the protection of  the Pacific. Well, which is it?  Was he sincere before or is he  only sincere now ? Has he played  with this question as he played  with that of Asiatic immigration?  00000  Hon. W. T. White told the  people of Great Britain that the  heart of Canada is sound on the  naval issue. Of course it is. It  is only the heart of the Tory  party of Canada that is weak  and unsound on the issue.  00000  The Colonist should exercise  a closer censorship over its  columns. It quotes a British  naval officer as- saying he never  handled better material than the  young Canadians who passed under his tuition.' He is confident  Canadians would make the finest  sailors in the world. Yet Premier Borden says, and the Colonist supports him, Canada cannot  hope to build or man ships under  twenty-five or possibly fifty  years.  o    o     c     o    o  Refuse to Accept Beggarly Salenes  The Vancouver Sun, in a recent issue states that the men  appointed to serve on the Bur-  rard sewage board will not  tolerate the situation which at-  .torhey-general Bowser has sought  to have thrust upon them in regard' to the remuneration stipulated for services"to be rendered.  There is now the strong possibility that Mr. Frank Bowser, brother to the attorney-general, who  was appointed chairman of the  board, at a salary of $5000, will  not receive the assistance of the.  other members appointed by the  municipalities, to whom the  minister, in his' discriminating  generosity, decided should be  paid $600 a year each.  To put it straight, there will  be resignations handed in shortly  unless the government revise the  salary list.  The trouble is said to be due to  the difference in the pay of the  chairman as compared with the  other members of the board, as  well as to the fact that Mr. Frank  Bowser possesses no qualifications entitling him to fill the  position.

Residents of the town are  nightly awakened from their  slumbers by the discordantlamen-  tations of one or more (generally  more) of these canine Corusos  who pines for his return to his  native haunts.  Those of us who have become  to some extent accustomed to  these noctural howlings, are frequently aroused by some less  fortunate neighbor, the neighborhood of whose abode has been  chosen as the scene pro'-tem of a  meeting of these nerve-racking  peace-disturbers, and who in desperation seizes a gun and in the  words of the poet goes after 'em.  What effect these recent sorties by these righteously indignant yet despairing souls has had  is not as yet noticeable but given  a full moon and a fair show and  let us hope but stay-  have they gun licenses?  These siwash dogs are for the  most part mangy mongrel brutes,  many of them a mass of running  sores, but dogs are dogs and seem  to  have a social code all their  own.  In the daytime can be seen,  dogs belonging to residents of  the town mingling in friendly intercourse with these deceased  whelps, to return home in the  evening to be fondled by the  owner or the children of the  house, who are altogether oblivious of the fact that dear little  Fido has probably been assisting  his less fortunate brother from  I the nearby Indian camp, in the  The Bella Coola post office has  been tranBfeitred from one of our  l0Cal stores into the telegraph  office, wher;e it is generally  agreed it rightly belongs.  Only a year: ago the post office  was taken oulof the hands of a  l0Cal merchant who after sixteen  years of faithful service as postmaster, was suddenly discovered  ito   entertain1    strong    political  i views not altogether favorable  [towards the government of the  '.-'day-   Strong action was taken  I by' certain persons, with a view  [of having him discharged from  the position   of   postmaster;  among   the"   charges    brought  against him being that of displaying at election time a poster  containing, the portrait of  the  Conservative candidate, now the  present member, Mr. H. S. Clements,   (truly   a   most heinous  crime).  However, the efforts of the  knockers prevailed, and the post  office was duly transferred to the  opposition store, the proprietor  of which, until recent years,  usually held office in the local  conservative organization.  The latter gentleman himself  saw no reason for the change,  and it was only under extreme  pressure and possibly at threat  of being excluded from party  patronage that he finally consented to accept the post office, and  now it has again been transferred, this time to the telegraph  office, under the control of an  experienced and efficient person.  How the public has been benefitted during the last year by the  fact of the post office being in  one store rather than another is  difficult to conceive, and we doubt  very much whether the gentle-  'man who had these tedious and  unremunerative duties foisted  on to him by a bunch of soreheads, will feel grateful to them  for this touch of political patron-   age. healihg of some horrible sores,  It was suggested to the local Qffr;hn^bie to mange occasioned  political   executioners,   that   it  SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINING  REGULATIONS  POAI.

We  wonder if these political  reformers  will  recompense the  retiring postmaster (who enabled  them to carry out their work of  spite) for the expense of erecting and   dismantling   his   post  office   fixtures,   which   bye-the-  way cost him a considerable sum,  a part of which, if not all, will  be a dead loss to him.   We wonder if their sense of justice extends that far.  One thing is certain however,  that the man who faithfully served the public for sixteen years  is never likely to become sufficiently interested in Tory methods  as to again display about his  premises a picture of a Conservative member of parliament.  attributable to mange occasioned  by improper feeding, or some  such canine ailment.
