 H  IF YOU WANT GOOD SPORT  VISIT BELLA COOLA. EXCEL-  LENT HUNTING AND FISHING.  WEATHER REPORT FOR NOVEMBER  Compiler]  by  Mr. C.  H.  UrseLh, of the  Bella Goola Observatory.  Temperature: Maximum, 44.    Minimum 33.  Rainfall, 4.59 inches.  VOL. 3���������NO. 9  BELLA COOLA, B.C., SATURDAY, DECEMBER'S,  1914.  $1.00 a Year  lauymnHWi^raDMDV  armes  Summary of News from Seat of War  \>  Sunday. The'following statement is from the Russian commander-in-chief : On Czenstochowa-Cracow front, our successes  are assuming marked importance. On November 26 our troops  captured over 400 prisoners. Our offensive was particularly  fortunate on lower Szrenlawa river where whole battalion of  31st Honvred Regiment surrendered. Austrian troops desperately defended Buchina, 35 miles south-east of, Cracow, which  we successfully stormed, capturing more than'2,000 prisoners,  machine guns, and ten field guns.  London despatch says, there are strong indications that the  fresh attempt by the Germans to force their way to Calais by  turning or piercing the Allies left wing is being abandoned.  This.can only mean the immediate retreat of Germans in West  Flanders.  Monday. It is reported from'Montevideo that the German Pacific  squadron has been sighted 500 miles north of Punta Hillar,  Brazil, directing its course north-east.  Petrograd correspondent of the Matin says a German cruiser  believed to be the Hertha has been reported sunk near Libau.  This report has not been confirmed by the admiralty.  Tuesday.    Special correspondent of Daily Express-says:   Allied  ��������� troops are now taking energetic offensive to south of Ypres and  'are occupying trenches deserted by Germans.   Much more submarine material from Germany is arriving at dockyards at Antwerp and Bruges, meanwhile Allies torpedo boats keep close  **   watch along the coast.    Behind  German  lines  aeroplanes of  Allies are causing continual disquiet by reconnaissances which  ^V". yield full information regarding movements of enemy.   Aviators  ffy made an attack on Bruges yesterday, dropping nine inflammable  ^j^g^bombs causing great.destruction.  "'���������'Mrjfe Official communication fx-om Petrograd states that after a fight  lasting ten days Russian troops captured the Austrian forces  which guarded the passes in the Carpathians. Russian losses  ' in this fight amounted to 750 killed and wounded. Russians  captured several cannon, machine guns and many prisoners.  During first half of November the Russians captured in all 50,-  000 Austro-Hungarian soldiers and 600 officers. Our loss does  not exceed 5000 killed, wounded and taken prisoners. At Plock,  Poland, Russian troops seized four ships laden with machine  guns and munitions of war. No Turkish warships have been  seen in the Baltic since November 21.  Wednesday. Result of important series of battles in Poland still  uncertain, though there is a growing impression that the German General has succeeded in saving his army after Russians  had encircled it. It is equally clear that German plan for taking  Warsaw has failed.  Official despatch from London says British medical officers report a serious outbreak of typhoid among the Belgians. Thirty  new cases daily among Belgian soldiers, besides others among  civilians. Outbreak must be checked or Belgian army will be  wiped out and thousands in northern France will perish.  Daily Mail correspondent says: Realizing Great Britain's preponderance in dreadnaughts, German dockyards are being kept  busy on construction of submarines and what are called floating  batteries. German theory seems to be that the British fleet can  only be defeated by launching against it huge submarines. It  is unofficially reported that the German fleet has steamed into  North Sea.. King George is now at British headquarters in-  France. Germans abandoned Dixmunde and are preparing for  last attack on Ypres which is in ruins.  | Thursday. King George has been four days at the front with the  British. Today he visited the firing line. Yesterday he spent  some time in the trenches conversing with the men. In all  cases he found them cheerful, with determination to stay with  it 'till the Germans were thoroughly beaten. Speaking in the  Reichstag today, Berth man n Holweg, chancellor, said: "Germany will persist to the last breath in this war which has been  forced on the German nation." He declared he had written  proof of Belgium's guilt in surrendering her neutrality. A large  part of the speech was an indictment of the British policy as  b^ing morally responsible for the war.  Australian and New Zealand contingents have disembarked in  Egypt to assist the native troops in complete training and to establish new garrison defenses.  The increased thunder of guns and the constant arrival of  wounded at Bruges, leads to the conclusion that there has been  far greater activity in Flanders during the last few days than  official reports indicate.  A Berlin report says that the Krupp factory at Essen was  bombarded by aviators yesterday. Bombs dropped on more  than half the buildings, but the full extent of the damage is not  reported. The aviators escaped unhurt and flew away to safety.  Sixty unattached Canadian officers are sailing for Canada  shortly to join second contingent. This is to more thoroughly  Perfect the Canadian troops in British discipline and methods  of warfare, in case second contingent is sent direct to the front.  88*  German Submarines  _       Bottled Up  British Bombardment of'Zeebrugge  Has Important Effect  London, December 4. ��������� Telegraphing from on the Belgian  frontier, special correspondent  of the Daily Express, this morning says: The last naval bombardment of Zeebrugge resulted  in the complete destruction of  the electric plant which supplied  the power for the operation of  massive lock gates which -give  access to the maritime canal,  with the result that the gates  cannot be opened. The German  submarines in the inner basin  are completely bottled up. This  puts the Germans in a serious  predicament, as, unless they are  able to manipulate the lock gates  Zeebrugge is useless to them.  They will be compelled to take  their submarines piecemeal over  land to Antwerp, and the consequent delay in this matter may.  prove disastrous to them.  The entire coast of Flanders  from Mariakerke, a short distance west of Ostend, to Knocke,  less than five miles from thebor-  der of Holland, is in a state of  defense, according to wounded  Germans who have arrived in  Brussels. The establishment of  heavy defenses on the coast is  declared to be the result of the  heavy fighting before Ypres.  Heavy guns have been posted at  Mariakerke overlooking the sea  Russians Are  At Cracow  Terrific Battle Expected Any  Moment  Petrograd, Dec. 4.���������The Russian army is now within easy  range, of the forts. The forts  are as yet silent but a tremendous battle is looked for at a  moment's notice. The Russians  are hastily digging trenches  and making preparations for  what they think will be a decisive conflict.  steamboat communication with  Prince Rupert there is no reason  why our local farmers should not  take advantage of the excellent  opportunity of disposing of their  produce. According to Mr.  Tomlinson there is a growing demand in Prince Rupert for Bella  Coola potatoes and he hopes that  this demand will be met. He  adds, that he is arranging for  livestock and poultry experts to  accompany him to Bella Coola  valley on the occasion of his next  visit which will be early next  year.           Mr. and Mrs. A.

Canadians in all parts of the  Dominion, and of all political  shade's, will regret to learn of  ' the fall of Premier Flemming of  New Brunswick, who has been  found guilty of charges which  may be summed up in that short  ugly word ' 'graft." The premier  is said to be very ahgry over the  verdict of the commission, and,  it' is said, intends to remain in  office. We greatly doubt if he  will be permitted to do this. Impeachment would be bound to  follow such a determination and  would only add to the scandal  attached to his government.  The. cause of-Premier Flemm-  ing's downfall may fairly be attributed to machine methods.  The government had a strong  majority and there were few to  criticize its methods and the  machine flourished greatly.  Regular demands were made  on those needing government  patronage, until this became a  recognized, custom. This was  regarded as astuteness and as  such was praised. But eventually these illegal transactions became s6 flagrant, that a sweeping investigation brought to  light a host of facts, and the premier of New Brunswick was  shown to have had a guilty  knowledge of the extortions.  Too much power is a danger-  ous thing. A government without strong opposition is very apt  to grow careless in its responsibility to the people. Forgetting  the interests of the electors it  begins to work for its own interests and those of the powerful  corporations. Such a government is very apt to soon become  corrupt.  In British Columbia there is  practically no opposition. Large  sums were spent at the last election to defeat the only Liberal  member of the House. In the  Islands bye-election, the machine  was worked to its limit of power  to prevent the election of a Liberal.     Why is the government  so anxious to avoid criticism?  The administration of British  Columbia has for years been  in the hands of just two "men.  They are the government, and the  legislature is not in their confidence. Add to this the absolute  lack of response between the  electors and their representatives, and you have an autocracy.  The New Brunswick government had opposition, which, although perhaps not very strong,  was yet in a position to demand  the investigation which has unearthed a system of extortion  which had long been practiced  by the government with the  knowledge of the premier himself.   .  In British Columbia we have a  case where ' the government  vouches for the payment of $75,-  000 (in the public accounts) to  Mr. S. Matson for work that  Hon. Wm. Ross is paid to do.  Mr. Matson in turn declares that  all he received was $30,000. To  this day the people of this province do not know what became  of the remaining $45,000 and neither the government nor Mr.  Matson will tell. This is only one  instance of many that would be  explained if the government was  faced with a strong opposition.  Let the people of British Columbia be warned by the experience of others. It was one of  the greatest of Canadian statesmen who said that a government  without opposition and- with a  full treasury was sufficient to  corrupt an archangel. And the  members of our government are  not archangels.  Let us not be too hard in our  criticisjns of the premier of New  Brunswick, Doubtless when Mr.  Flemming was placed in power  he was a man worthy of trust.  He may have had ideals and ambitions of the highest order, but  the ease with which the public  money could be.diverted to the  use of his party machine was  too much for him.  It is a lesson for the people of  British Columbia, who have deprived themselves of their only  safeguard, a strong opposition  in their legislature. Should such  sums as the above mentioned  $45,000 ultimately be found to  have been spent for an improper  purpose the public will have only  themselves to blame. We must  remember that the members of  our government are not archangels.  The Rural Press.  The disappearance from our  exchange table of several publications from rural towns in the  province seems to evidence the  fact that the hard times of which  we read so much in ��������� the city  newspapers is spreading. Yet  this need not necessarily be the  case.  The true reason for the cessation of the publication of these  small rural papers, may be any  of several.  A few years ago, it was confidently expected that, along the  line of the projected railways  and in other places where there  was an abundance of agricultural  land, close settlement would take  place. Tradesmen and. newspapermen chose certain places  as being probable centres, and  commenced to lay the foundations of what were expected to  become thriving towns. In some  instances small towns did spring  up, but in most cases the surrounding country has not yet become settled- The speculator  took the chance offiered to him  by a friendly government and  coralled the bulk of the choice  land. This land is being held today at a price which prohibits  settlement. Thus were the hopes  of many newspapermen blasted  by the action of the government.  That this has been the experience of some newspapermen we  know beyond question.  Again, there is this possible  reason. Until quite recently  many of these rural journals  were practically subsisting on  pap from the government. The  public accounts of the past few  years show to what extent the  government patronized certain  of them. The constant printing  of inspired articles boosting the  government's every action, regardless of how reprehensible it  might be, brought its return in  government advertising, and  made the publication of the  paper a profitable undertaking.  Lately the supply of easy money  from the government has failed.  The government is working on  borrowed funds, and what is in  the treasury is needed to buy the  votes of the people, by way of  big appropriations when the time  comes, probably next spring.  This source of income t& a certain class of rural papers has  been cut off, and it is more than  possible.;that this may explain  the disappearance of some of  these journals from our exchange  table.       ,  In this case, however, the  closing down is only likely to be  temporary and such journals can  be confidently expected to be  resurrected by a strong application of government pap, to help  delude the electors with wild  promises of wonderful things to  happen if only/the government  is returned.;;  ; But maybe there is yet another  reason.   There" is just a possibility that the people of these  rural towns are at least partially  to  blame,  li There   is,   strange  though it may seem, sometimes  found a certain class in a community who seem to despise the  home product    They don't recognize it as a duty to help to  their  utmost the infant industries in their midst.   They are  always   boosting   with    t h e i r  tongue,   but knocking in  their  actions.   Such people are truly  sorry when  the business they  have neglected to support goes  to the wall, but rarely recognize  that they themselves are responsible.    A true test of a man's  loyalty is his treatment of his  home industries.    If he values  them and assists them as far as  lays in his power, he is doing  something for his town.    The  man who fails to recognize this  is doing, not only his town but  himself, an unkindness.   Heaves  where he does because he thinks  the place is bound to develop,  yet he himself forms a serious  obstacle to the progress of his  own town. We know whereof  we speak when we suggest this  as a possible reason.  The Courier; has so far weathered the storm. It was not first  published without careful consideration of all likely eventualities. Not being dependent on  government patronage for our  existence, nor yet on the patronage of any one person or group  of persons, our readers have no  need to be apprehensive of our  failure to continue publication.  We need every assistance. We  ask every assistance, but only  from the reading and advertising  public, whom we endeavor to  serve to the best of our ability.  For Results Use-  "A. P.

His   poem   appeared   in   every  , paper in the British Islands, was  I set to music, and printed in illuminated type  on   postcards.    ['SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINING  ;quote the first verse: j REGULATIONS  What will you lack sonny,  what will you lack   '  When Ihe girls line up the street.  Shouting their looe to thu lads come back  Prom the foe they rushed lo heat ?  Will you send a strangled cheer to the s/<y  And grin till your cheeks are red?  But what will you tack when your mate goes by  With a girl xaho cuts you dead?  Back in the north midland town  where I was born it is quite lonely, the place is denuded of its  young men. Seventy per cent,  of my old schoolfellows are with  the colors, some are at the front,  others, who belong to the territorial army are stationed abroad.  The headmaster keeps a roll of  honor of those of his scholars  who have met death in the fighting line. I perused it with mixed  feelings of pride and intense  sorrow.  On Salisbury Plain beside the  Canadians, there are Ghurkas���������  little black fellows with wide  grins, white teeth and "kurkri"  knives, who fear nothing and  reverence nobody save the Prophet and the colonel; and tall,  beturbanned Sikhs, second only  to Mr. Atkins with the bayonet;  and wild horsemen with lances,  fierce tribesmen from the Himalayas and the Punjaub, amendable only to the discipline of the  Raj.  And yet there is also a humorous side. The "knut" was the  pride of a hundred cities; his  element was Piccadilli and its  replicas: his socks rivalled the  rainbow hues, his tie was resplendent and a thing to look  upon with awe; his lavender  gloves, walking cane, and the  speaking pattern of his cap were  a beauty and a joy; but he has  disappeared���������Kitchener's Army  has enveloped him; Behold then,  in a weekly publication, a sketch  by a well-known black and white  artist, it is entitled 'The Ordeal'  and depicts half a regiment of  knuts marching shoulder to*  shoulder, four deep and with  chests thrown out trying to appear indifferent and not confused  as they pass, at the corner of  the street, three or four girls  who are obviously amused at the  transformation.  British members of parliament  who are too old for service are  making stirring speeches, urging  young men to rally to the colors.  Two nights ago I was privileged  to sit amongst an audience whom  Lord Charles Beresford was addressing. Imagine this old warrior, sixty-eight years of age,  attired in the khaki uniform of  the naval brigade, smiling, as it  seemed at first benignly, fraternally upon us. But he spoke vigorously and his accent was clear  though with a trace of Irish in  it, his eyes twinkled or flashed  fire as he was humorous or fervid.  "We are going to see it through,"  he said, "right through���������to a  finish, a clean knockout. And  the settlement will have to be in  Berlin."  And the recruiting goes on at  the rate of fifteen thousand a  week.  Thus because of all these things  and many others not recorded,  England is a different place.    It  is a privilege to see her in a crisis.  I  have   reported   myself   for  duty.  ARCHIE P. DARLINGTON.  October 13, 1914.

The war has demonstrated to  Great Britain that her plan for  the handling of overseas possessions has been essentially sound,  and that despite minor discontents she may depend even in  time of considerable stress on  the fundamental loyalty of her  dominions and dependencies,  some of which seem to have  awakened to the needs of the  moment more quickly than the  mother country itself..

Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  HTHE REASONS  for this  enviable  condi-  -*���������   dition 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.  ] [  ] [D  Robinson's Remedies Never Did Fail  The fact that the fumes of this Oily Powder remain with  the bird for days, thereby killing all the lice and mites,  gives conclusive proof of the superiority of the "sticking"  qualities of ROBINSON'S LICE POWDER.

Good-,progress js being made  on the extensive repairs to the  wharf. Foreman McCloskey is  now being favored with fine  weather and able to get in full  time. Several of the men engaged on the work have taken  involuntary duckings in the cold  waters of the harbor, but so far  with no serious result.  The farmers of the valley are  taking full advantage of the fir.e  dry weather and' are busily engaged, in the hard task of land  clearing- The Saloomt saw mill  at Hagensborg, have a number  of men engaged cutting shinfile  bolts, and no one is idle.  The local Conservatives held  a meeting at the Mackenzie  School on Saturday" last, but as  ,no report of the proceedings is  to hand we are unable to state  -the nature of the business transacted. It is said several new  members were enrolled, which  is quite probable. Bella Coola  town has long been a Conservative stronghold, although strange  to say, at the last election the  Liberals polled the largest vote.  1������ffmMi^mH  fy^km-'il^kW :���������-������������������������������������;;:������������������:.<���������  mmmm'vBm:  ^l^"^:y;';''-.Vv..:::.
