VARIOUS PROVINCIAL PURPOSES -  Total to Be Borrowed  $25,000,000  15,000,000  1.5,000,000  $55,000,000  It has been stated in inner government circles that the legislative assembly will be called together early in January for the purpose of considering three important measures in addition to routine  ���������matters.    These three measures are as follows:  (1) To provide a further large sum of money in aid of Mackenzie & Mann and their Canadian Northern enterprise. The amount  they must have in order to enable them to finish their undertakings  in this province is not less than $25,000,000.  . (2) To provide further moneys for Messrs. Foley, Welch &  Stewart and their Vancouver associates, to enable them to finish  the Pacific Great Eastern railroad to Fort George. The further  amount necessary in this case is variously estimated, but will be  not less than $15,000,000.  (3).. To authorise the McBride government to borrow for provincial purposes sums of money totalling not less than $15,000,000.  The above programme is in contemplation by the premier and  his cabinet at the present moment and unless their plans miscarry  will be carried into effect..  Taking into account the guarantees already on the statute books J  and assuming that those contemplated will be made, the province  ?"- of  British Columbia will  have a staggering load  of liabilities  amounting to $100,000,000, all of which have been incurred in a  little over three years.���������Victoria Times.  Dictator's Control Going to Pieces  Juarez, Mexico, Dec. 4.���������Seven  federal generals are hurrying towards United States border.  Many of Huerta's supporters including several officers of high  rank have thrown up the sponge  and are seeking safety in hurried  flight. The control which the  dictator has so far exercised is  fast going to pieces, principally on account of there being no  money to pay the troops. The  people of Chihuihua are panic-  stricken and it is felt that a  crisis is at hand.

Meade and C. H.  Edmonds who in company with  Mr. H. B. Green, have spent several months endeavoring to ob-  . tain moving pictures of wild ani-  mals in their native haunts.  Many and interesting were the  accounts these gentlemen had to  .������ixe:.of. the.lr:puble and somtimes  even  danger incurred in  their  work.  Mr. Meade told of how on one  occasion   he   had succeeded  in  scaling a precipitous cliff in order to  take a picture of some  mountain   goats,   it was  found  necessary for their Indian guide  to li^ face downwards, grasping  Mr. Meade's feet in order to give  him sufficient foothold to enable  :^%fc������n temperate the machine.   Mr.  *'Y������Meade got his picture which will  doubtless be practically unique,  i Another interesting picture of  a full grown black bear was obtained besides many others of  extraordinary descriptions.  Mr. Green remains in the Upper Bella Coola Valley, where he  will spend a couple of months  with the Ratcliff brothers on  their trap line, and hopes yet to  obtain a picture of one of the  famous Bella Coola grizzlies  which have so far succeeded in  eluding his machine.  These pictures will, when put  before the public, demonstrate  beyond doubt that as a big game  country Bella Coola and vicinity  has few equals.  &  Nanaimo Miners Not Guilty  ���������New  Westminster,   Dec.  4.

Indignation at Attitude of  United States  An outline of the message delivered by President Wilson to  Congress at Washington, was  prominently displayed by all the  Spanish morning papers. The  only paper printed in English,  however, buried it away in an  inside page. In commenting on  the message the "Independent"  which is controlled by the government said in part as follows:  "The man at the White House  has dared to affirm against the  truth universally conceeded  that Provisional President Huer-  ta is losing sympathy every day,  and that his fall is to be expected.

The fire broke out in the crowded bunkrooms occupied by poor  working men and the place soon  became a veritable death trap,  the burning staircase cutting off  all chance of escape, while the  doors leading to the fire escapes  were found to be locked.  The roof of the building was  crowded with terror stricken  men, some of whom were only  rescued with the greatest difficulty. Scores of those rescued  were suffering from severe injuries and were taken to the  hospital. The total loss of life  is not yet known.

Mexican.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  Latest reports received from  trappers in various parts of Bella  Coola's hinterland show that this  season's fur catch will be an exceptionally heavy one.  When the Hudson Bay Company established themselves in  British North America, their  idea was essentially to tradewith  the Indians for furs, and careful  judgment was exercised in the  various points where posts were  to be established, consideration  being given chiefly to such places  as were inhabited by large tribes  of Indians and where fur was  known to be plentiful. Nor were  strategical points altogether lost  sight of.  Mentioning only a few places  such as Fort Rupert, Bella  Bella, Bella Coola, Port Simpson, on the coast, and Hazelton,  Fort Fraser, Fort George, in the  immediate inland, it will be easily seen with what care the old-  time corporation planned their  business.  Fort Rupert has  long   since  passed as a great fur trading  centre as have also many of the  others. Although it is now over  sixty years since the Hudson Bay  Company first established their  post on the south bank of the  stately Bella Coola River, this  place on accountof its geographical position and its easy access  from the interior, has during all  this time maintaiaed its place as  a great fur collecting centre,  and at perhaps no point on this  northern coast can be seen an  equal amount of those beautiful  skins for which the interior of  Northern British Columbia is  so famous.  Last year was a very good one  for the trapper and large quantities of fur were purchased by  the local merchants.  This year the fur catch brought  in up to now has been exceptionally heavy and of excellent quality and although the various price  lists show a marked decline, the  prices locally still range high for  the better quality pelts and the  trappers are well satisfied.

Among her passengers was Mr.  William Sutherland who returned  from Vancouver after having assisted in taking the yacht Vera-  da to her winter quarters.  The list of outgoing passengers  included Messrs. B. B. Haugan,  Fred Anderson, W. McKee, H.  B. Meade, C. H. Edmonds and  special-constable Wheeler.

We expect to see steamboats calling in here in the near future.  This will be a great convenience  for the residents, as, at present,  all freight, mail, etc., has to be  brought from Old Town or from  East Town.  Mr. Boyd, of Prince Rupert,  who has been in the hospital for  the last two weeks is recovering.  Messrs Moore and Draney, of  Namu, called here Monday. Mr.  Moore had met with an accident,  having his thumb caught in machinery and badly injured, part  of the bone was removed in the  hospital and a dressing put on,  afterwards he returned home in  the evening.  George Kitamura, the hospital  cook, left last Thursday on the  Venture for Vancouver, where  he will take a position with his  uncle.  Miss Blanche Metcalfe, nurse,  and Miss K. Tranter, school  teacher, took tea at the home of  Mrs. J. Pauline, Old Town.  Mrs. Rave of East Town, a  daughter of G. W. Smith, is acting as cook at the mess-house at  present.  i  Mr. R. Whiteside, manager of  the cannery at East Town, is in  Vancouver.  Mr. Bert Robson, was outhunt-  ! find when he arrived there that  the party had pulled out into another bay for the night, so he  spent the long hours of the night  by the side of a fire kindled by  the last remaining: match he had  in his pocket. In the early morning the party returned for Bert,  and all arrived home in safety.  We are glad to know that Mr.  Robson has not, as yet, suffered  any serious effects from his. experience.  The daily attendance at school  is exceptionally high and pupils  are showing zeal in their work.  Mr. Dolan, of Rivers Inlet, was  able to return home from the  hospital a short time ago.  Ocean Falls  P. Sanders, time-keeper, R.  Storey, camp-boss, and F. McNeil  came up on the last Camosun in  order to arrange certain small  jobs around the plant.  It now looks likely that the  camps will be started up again  in the early spring.  There are now upwards of ten  million feet of logs in booms at  Cousins Inlet, and every precaution has been taken to safeguard against the loss of any  logs by breaking adrift during  high winds which prevail at this  time of the year.  The health'condition at Ocean  Falls has been excellent.  No snow has fallen as yet, and  had the mills been in operation  the logging camps could have run  without hindrance up to now.  to Advertise.   An ad. in the Courier never fails to bring results.

Startling Statement  In order to speak' authoritative  ly onanysubject, itisfirstneces  sary to have,some knowledge of  ��������� 'that subject.  In order to fully appreciate to  what extent the land speculator  , .hasj been given his chance it is  ��������� necessary to first ascertain where  lie the arable tracts throughout  the*province and then to find out  '   by whom and for what purpose  . they are held.    In the^ Vancou-  "~   veri press appears .the report of  . a w'ell known, farming expert on  '-   hisrecent trip along the line of  ..,   the* Grand Trunk Pacific.   "  ':   This report states that ' 'In the  ' ^-;eSpanse-(DfterritoTy:be-'  ' tween New Hazelton and Fort  George, included in which are the  principle valleys, namely, the  -' Bulkley, Endako, Nechaco and  the Stewart River, there is not  today under, actual cultivation  800 acres,of land."  The report proceeds to show  that most of the land in these  fertile valleys ''-'was originally  bought by investors, and is either  being held in block or smaller  parcels by individuals who have  no intention of settling on them,  so that the' prospective settler  will have to purchase-the land,  ' and unless a far better showing  is made than at present exists,  many will return to swell the already surprisingly large number  who have gone-in optimists and  returned pessimists and knockers  '    who have done and will do incalculable harm."  This is the result of the government's land policy which Mr.  Bowser 'is having such trouble  in attempting to defend.  I      6      6     O      6  Mr, W. H. Hay ward who has  returned from his European jaunt  in search of knowledge pertaining to agriculture says "that in  none of the countries he visited  were conditions at all similar to  those which  exist in this province."   Truly a wonderful discovery on the part of Mr. Hay-  ward, but We wonder  what it  ��������� cost the: taxpayer.     However,  Mr.   Hav.ward   assures us  that  things at-e jogging along nicely  in  the  6ld World, and that is  surely worth something to know.  While studying how to increase  the agricultural industries in the  province, how would it do to try  the experiment (unprecedented  in this province, we admit) of  Islands district, speaking at Sidney made mention of a wharf at  Gabriola with a grade approaching it up'which no ordinary farm  team can haul a load.    ,  He also mentioned a wharf at  Thetis Island which cost $3000  and a government road running  in from it for a mile and a half,  telling how the road and wharf  are not used because steamers  will not call there.  These things the Premier describes as "trifles."  We have a number of such  "trifles" here, and recollecting  Mr. William Manson's reply when  these "trifles" were pointed out  to him, we begin now to understand what a clever mimic he is,  and how." devotedly he follows  his leader.  Trifles they may be, but who  pays for them? '  both parties to prosecute in many  instances ' where persons' were  definitely known to have resorted  to corrupt practices. But the  Liberals preferred to say nothing  and wait: Since that time the  evidence has been gathered, the  case has been prepared, and now  the exposure is to be made.  The county was flooded with  Conservative heelers, but the  Liberal party were prepared for  them. ��������� Knowing well that the  emissaries of Bob Rogers would  not hesitate to adopt shady tactics, they brought in private detectives and when the nominations .were , held the entire  Conservative organization was  honeycombed by Liberal workers.

On November 3, we learnt that  our.sick and disabled premier was  greatly in evidence at a jolly  Sunday evening dinner, when a  number of American actors entertained Cyril Maude the English actor, at the Lotos club, New  York.  ' At this Sabbath entertainment,  Mr. Borden, despite his ill-health,  found strength to make a lengthy  speech, of which the New York  Herald speaks as follows:  "In regard to reciprocity between this country (America)  and Canada, Mr. Borden said  that.Canada had no objection to  such a treaty, and that Canada  Popular Christmas Gifts !j  A Birks* Watch, Chain or Fob  ���������lit k TrUC Q for Men and Boys, in a great variety of  WAIlnEiO styles, but all warranted to be reliable  t"Tmekeeuers"7~~We" have many fine grades in men's Thin  Clelf as well as in Models, especially intended for  Doctors, Merchants, Ranchers-and Lumbermen.  ���������H7- ATrUEQ for Ladies in the newest popular case de-  '���������'���������WAIvn-J&iJ signs.

I reminded  him of K-itimat Island,  where  George Robinson, in spite of and  in defiance of the law, secured  deeds of two or three blocks of  land, as has been proven under  sworn testimony.

Now Willie, will you be good?  the Liberals knew of it. .Their  men-fwere at the orgies that were  held in the back townships, they  were even given money by the  Conservatives to pass to voters  in order.to "beat Fisher."  Scores of farmers were approached with offers of money,  either .to mark their ballot for  Morris or to stay away from the  poll.  On the night before election,  a man who. was known to have  accepted a .bribe was approached  by Liberal workers. He "confessed and handed over the very  bills, which were later produced  at a meeting.  Soon the rumor spread that the  Liberals knew of all who had received bribes and were going to  prosecute. Then came the panic.  Visiting farmhouses two Liberal  workers gathered money together  with signed affidavits. Respectable men had sold their votes.  They were afraid and very much  ashamed.  Before the court which hears  the protest the whole story will  be brought to light and there is  little doubt but what it will be  interesting if disgusting.  towards it. He said that he re  gretted it had not come to pass,  but added that 'Canada will conduct affairs so as to be a bond  between the United States and  the British Empire.'

Oh, that that were the only  thing he didn't know.  Does he know what he is talking about?
