Mr.  McFeely combines business with  pleasure and is interviewing the  local merchants as to their requirements in the hardware line,  while Mrs. McFeely and children  are enjoying an outing in the  settlement.  Mrs. J. W. Macfarlane, after  spending a month here visiting  at the home of Mrs. E. Clayton,  took passage south on the Camosun last Sunday. It is the intention of Mr. and Mrs. Macfarlane  to reside permanently in Vancouver where Mr. Macfarlane is  engaged in the mining and real  estate business.  i   The Thomas Crosby of the B.

The  Crosby returned north from here  on Tuesday morning.  The sockeye run of salmon is  at an end locally. Humpbacks  and dog salmon have arrived and  are being caught in numbers.

R. A. Renwick/former  deputy-minister of lands at Victoria, acted as secretary to the  Commission assisted by a stenographer. J. T. Williams, inspector of fisheries for district  No. 2, was also present.  J. B. Saint, manager of the  B. C: Packers' Association's cannery here, was the first witness  to give evidence, also Mr. Jen-  sen.'bf the Tallio fisheries plant  was called, but being a new man  here could not enlighten the inquisitive visitors to any extent.  The fishermen's ca?e was presented bya delegation of throe,  John Jorgenson, O. Indrevik and  H. Haakenson.   The Indian representatives were Albert King  and Ruben Schooner, acting interpreter-in-chief   Rev.   W? H.  Gibson.    Indian agent I. Foug-  ner,  presented  vic-ws   held  by  some of his wards in.respectto  fishing grounds at Bella Bella  and places in the neighborhood  of the Skeena river.  1 Quite an array of ladies were  present at the sitting,  this of  course may ,be accounted for in  that women now have a vote and  wish to scrutinize men's actions  a little more carefully, and perhaps  laying  plans   for  future  action.  ^This being the last place where  the Commission met, the inspector of fisheries for this district,  Mr.  Williams,  in a   few" well-  chosen words expressed thanks,  on behalf of canncrs and fishermen, to the commission for the  painstaking care shown in this  work that the government of  Canada, through them, had set  about to do with a view of not  only adjusting matters between  fish operators and fishermen but  also for the future preservation  of the fish, in closing he wished  the Commissioners bon voyage.  At this juncture Miss Grace Brynildsen  timidly   presented  the  head  of  the   commission, Mr.  Evans, with a bouquet of flowers.   The chairman in reply said  that throughout the whole investigation there was a  desire  shown by all parties interested  and   citizens  in   general,   that  there should be an adjustment  of differences as well as steps  beig taken for the future preser  vation and increased production  of fish. Pleasingly, the chairman continued, "Northern British Columbia has treated us well  and we shall take back with us  many happy recollections of our'  trip." Referring to the industry, he noted that in proportion  to the number of men engaged  in fishing Bella Coola had more  men owning their own boats and  nets than ate any other place  visited'.

The Fishery Commission's  Visit.   -  The Royal Commission inquiring into the fisheries condition  in this district, known as No. 2,  held its sitting here on Monday  last. The cannery managers  gave their opinion as well as the  fishermen. There was not much  force in any of their evidence,  still less for the steps to be taken  for the future propagation of  the salmon.  , The argument of the ranchers  , or farmers, who by the way are  . fishermen during the salmon  season, was that-there should, be  no increase in fishing licenses,  that they could with the number  of boats now fishing catch all the  fish; in other words, "the monopoly should be theirs." They  also presented to the Commission  The strong points that should  have been most forcibly put  before this court of inquiry, as  the Courier has pointed out from  time to time. First: to clean out  tlje log jams in the Bella Coola  river from its mouth to the lakes,  where the fish spawn. Second:  to erect a hatchery of the capacity of the one now at Rivers Inlet. Third: the destruction of  trout, birds and other enemies  that are playing havoc'with the  salmon fry. Fourth: the removal of the present tidal boundary  from the moutji of the river, so  as to give the salmon some show!  to enter without finding a two  hundred fathom net across its  mouth at all times during fishing.

Votes for soldiers at the front  is a topic-that is arousing much  discussion in England just now,  as doubtless it will in the Canadian commons when the measure  to ensure the taking of theover-  seas vote is taken up. The British proposal is that all soldiers  of 19 years of age be given the  vote. .We, itisunderstood make  no such restriction. 'In Britain  the civil population cannot vote  under 21 years of age. But the  proposal to give the soldiers this  extension is not meeting with  approval in all quarters; it is  pointed out that while it may be  a good election move, it is not  fair to munition workers, colliers, merchant sailors, and the  like,  of  whom great   numbers  an opposition to the use of motor have wanted to join the army  boats, as they claim it would entail to them an extra expense,  so if the person that has no other  vocation than fishing "he should  also be barred from this modern  convenience."* They favored the  remo'val of the fishing boundary  toa'point about three-quarters-  of-a^mile distant. The Indian  fishermen thought the boundary  and been forbidden in the public  interest to do so.'  Many are in this branch of the  service, rather than at the'front,  because of some slight physical  disability which has brought  about their rejection. It is also  pointed out that' even in the  ranks of the army abroad there  is a vast proportion whose fight-  was just right, but also opposed inS risk is sma11-,   In our own  case the forestry battalions and.  such corps are in no more danger  than then would be in a Canadian  lumber camp.

They explained that in the past through  overlapping of the seasons there  had been appalling waste of fish  One Indian cited that in fishing  for sockeyes' late, a boat load of  other salmon would betaken and  perhaps in that' only two sock-  eyes were caught and brought  to the cannery, the rest being  dumped into the bay. This state  of affairs, according to--the Indian's version, has been going on  since a cannery was first built,  something like seventeen years  ago. This is the first year that  all fish caught is being canned.  o     o    o     o    o  The Commission is composed  of clearheaded business men;  who have made a success in their  own business ra.rid who seem to  take an interest in this . work.

Should theCana-  'dian soldiers get the vote because  they'are at the front, as they  deserve to get it, can we riglit-  fullywitbhold it from those who  are willing to go, but who are  prevented because of circumstances beyond their' mending,  ,01* who are engaged in essential  industries? ."Is the munition  worker of less account than the  man in the trenches, who depends upon the worker to keep  him there? Should notall Canadians who have applied for enlistment and have been rejected  be given the vote as well as their  more fortunate fellow citizens  who passed the physical tests?  The taking of the soldiers'  vote, in the event of a Dominion  election, of those at the front  who are.now entitled to vote  will,, be no small .undertaking,  and, judging by the provincial  taking of the soldiers' votes, jt  would, perhaps, be the better  policy to confine the voting in  tl & forthcoming Dominio'n election to the boundaries of Canada  and as soon as our soldiers return have a general election, irrespective of the life 'of the then  parliament.

The kaiser as king'of  Prussia really rules the Bundesrath. The chamber in brief is  an assembly of the sovereigns  of Germany. Its consent is necessary f to all .legislation passed  by the Reichstag, and the princes  have therefore an absolute veto  on all legislation passed by the  representatives of the people.  The kaiser is commander-in-chief  of the army, he has charge of  foreign affairs, and can even  make treaties off his own bat,  although this power is,not unlimited, the Bundesrath insisting  on passing some of them.' The  chancellor is the Kaiser's right  hand man. He is appointed and  removed at the whim of the emperor. Under the chancellor are  secretaries of state who administer departments, this being the  nearest approach to a cabinet  and ministers in the constitution.  To top all, the Bundesrath has  the power to dissolve the Reichstag, so that such a thing as a  responsible and popular government doesnot exist in Germany.

The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation.     The climate is mild and enjoy-  0 able;   long warm  summers  with  sufficient  rainfall and  mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruils,,Mgarden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.'

ASK YOUR MERCHANT FOR AMHERST  "HOME-MADE" BRAND  l?       Spare the Calves.  There is much sense "in the cry,  "spare the calves." The killing  of calves for veal should either  be prohibited altogether or restricted by law. Some of the  big corporations have sent out  warnings to the people both in  Canada and the United States,  that the wholesale slaughtering  of calves for veal for the sake  of satisfying one's appetite is a  menace to the future and should  be at once discontinued. The  killing of young calves is on a  par with the person that "kills  the goose that lays the golden  egg," and it is to be hoped that  the ranchers in Bella Coola valley takes this matter under consideration.   ��������� Officer: "Well, Pat, how do  you like soldiering?" hisli recruit: "Fine, sorr, all me life I  ; worked for a farmer, an' he  ���������never wanst touldjne to'shtand  ' at aise.''

The sockeye run of salmon is  at an end locally. Humpbacks  and dog salmon have arrived and  are being caught in numbers.  The sockeye pack at the Bella  Coola cannery is something like  fifteen hundred cases, though  the pack in former years as run  as high as eleven thousand cases.

This being the last place where  the Commission met, the inspector of fisheries for this district,  Mr. Williams, in a few well-  chosen words expressed thanks,  on behalf of canncrs and fishermen, to the commission for the  painstaking care shown in this  work that the government of  Canada, through them, had set  about to do with a view of not  only adjusting matters between  fish operators and fishermen but  also for the future preservation  of the fish, in closing he wished  the Commissioners bon voyage.  At this juncture Miss Grace Brynildsen timidly presented the  head of the commission, Mr.  Evans, with a bouquet of flowers.   The chairman in reply said  was on the battlefield of Vimy,  as our boys were,   deserve  all  that can be done for them. There  is still much hard work to do,  and many trials to face.   I should  be pleased to see a few more of  those at home come and give a *  hand,  it would help us to  get  home all the sooner.

If you can direct a little of the  Red  Cross   supplies   that   our  ladies at home are making we  could make good use of them in  the  102nd.     There is  a great  shortage in scissors, they soon  wear out cutting through muddy  clothes, and we find supplies difficult to obtain.    I know an appeal will not be in  vain.    1 am  writing this at the close of day  on the Vimy field, the weather  is great, all is quiet, but we are  on the eve of another big battle.

The cannery managers  gave their opinion as well as the  fishermen. There was not much  force in any of their evidence,  still less for the steps to be taken  for the future propagation of  the salmon.  ��������� The argument of the ranchers  or farmers, who by the way are  fishermen during the salmon  season, was that'there should.be  .no increase in fishing licenses,  that they could with the number  of boats now fishing catch all the  .fish; in other;.wdrds7.\'the monopoly should, be theirs.-'   They  dian commons when the measure  to ensure the taking of theover-  seas vote is taken up. The British proposal is that all soldiers  of 19 years of age be given the  vote. We, it is understood make  no such restriction. In Britain  the civil population cannot'vote  under 21 years.of age." But the  proposal to give the soldiers this  extension is not meeting with  approval in all quarters; it is  pointed out that while it may be  a good election move; it" is not  fair to munition '"workers, colli-  ers,  merchant sailors, and  the  also presented to the Commission  an opposition to the use of motor'nave wanted to join the  :er of less account than the  man in the trenches, who de-  pends upon the wprker to keep  him there? Should not all Canadians who have applied for enlistment and have been rejected  be given the vote as well as their  more fortunate fellow citizens  who passed the physical tests?  The taking of the soldiers'  vote, in the event of a Dominion  election, of those at the front  who are now entitled to vote  will be no small undertaking,  and, judging by the provincial  taking, of the ^soldiers' .votes, j.t  would,  perhaps,   be  the -better  policy to confine the voting fn  like,, of whom * great   numbers *i ��������� *��������� ������.u       -      ta     ��������� ���������Jr-i������'-  . . tl ������ forthcoming Domimdn elec-  boats, as they claim it would entail to them an extra expense,  so if the person that has no other  and been forbidden in the public  interest to do so.

"rT,HE REASONS for, this enviable condi-  ���������*��������� tion of affairs are obvious to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits,^garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.  OELLA CQOLA and the surrounding  country possesses wonderful wealth  in timber, as yet almost entirely undeveloped, and perhaps at no other point  on the Northern Coast is there the same  opportunity for a remunerative investment as in a saw mill at Bella Coola.  cgyif^R  SUBSCRIPTION   RATES OF  BELLA COOLA  COURIER.  :. -">.

There is much sense in thecry,  "spare the calves." The killing  of calves for veal should'either,  be prohibited altogether or restricted by law. .Some of the  big corporations have sent out  warnings to the people both in  Canada and the United States,  that, trie wholesale'slaughtering  of calves for veal for the sake  of satisfying one's appetite is a  menace1 to the future and should  be at once discontinued. The  killing Of young calves is on a  par with the person that "kills  the'goose that lays the golden  egg," and it is to be hoped that  the ranchers in Bella Coola valley takes this matter under consideration.

The  man who swam the longest distance was to receive five dollars.  The Alabama Whale immediately stripped, on the dock, but  the Human Steamboat said he  had some business and would  return in a few minutes.' The  Whale swam the river four .or  five times for exercise, ~aiid* by  that time the Human Steamboat  returned. . He wore a pair of  swimming trunks and had a  sheet-iron cook stove strapped  on his back. Tied, around his  neck were a dozen packages containing bread, flour, bacon and  other eatables. The Whale gazed  at his opponent in amazement.  "Wharyo' vittles?" demanded the Human Steamboat.  "Vittles fo' what?" asked the  Whale.  "Don't yo' ask me fo' nothin'  on_ de way ovah," warned the  Steamboat/ "Mah fust stop is  New Yawk, an' mah next "stop  is London.'I  DECLINED $7,500 SALARY  TOsSERVE PUBLIC FREE  MR. JOHN G.
