Forty Alpine chasseurs with two officers were cut  off by the Germans and were ordered to surrender. They refused and charged down the  snow-covered slope on their skis  into the German trenches, where  a terrible struggle took place  before the French soldiers were  overcome.  Enemy Endeavor to  Recapture Lost Ground  Driven Back at Bayonet Point  Paris, Feb. 19.���������Official communication���������The operations yesterday were as favorable to us as  those of the preceeding two days.  Artillery combats were the order  from the soa'to the Aisne, though  near Roelincourt the Germans  delivered five counter-attacks  with the object of re-taking  trenches which had been occupied by us on February 17. These  were all successfully repulsed  and several hundred German  dead, among whom were several  officers, were left on the ground.  In Champagne in region of Sois-  sons, Perthes, and Beausejour,  the enemy delivered, first on the  night of February 17 and again  yesterday morning, two very  violent counter-attacks along the  whole front in an attempt to recapture trenches lost by them  on the 16thand 17th. Both these  attacks were repulsed by our  troops who drove the enemy  back at the point of the bayonet.  In maintaining these gains we  have taken three machine guns  and several hundred prisoners.  According to statements by these  prisoners, several German regiments suffered very heavy losses,  reaching in some cases one man  in four, and in one instance at  least half of the whole regiment.  On the heights of the Meuse  the ground gained on February  17 has been retaken, notwithstanding several counter-attacks.  In Lorraine, our troops delivered  an attack which enabled them to  capture the village of Morroy and  to occupy an important position.

Laying in Meat Supply!  "HALF SHOT" or  "THE CAT CAME BACK.  A simple story I will tell, in words  did you but know it,  The reason why a cat should be,  the theme of such a poet.  This cat was a noble cat, a cat of  high degree,  Its owner oft was heard to brag,  its length of pedigree.  But  even, cats   have   enemies,  some cats have  more than  others,  The cat I speak of had them more,  than holy men have brothers.  One man there was had bitter  feud, his station was but lowly,  His name we will not mention  here, but simply call him Ole.  He shot the cat there is no doubt,  and laughed a gleeful laugh,  ' 'Dead felines tell no tales,'' said  he, "How's that for epitah."

They were driven out after a  stiff fight. In Alsace, supplementary details show that the  southern part of Sudel farm,  captured by us on Wednesday,  constituted a formidably organized redoubt. There we took a  bomb thrower, five machine  guns, some hundreds of rifles,  shields, bombs, utensils for making barbed wire entanglements,  thousands of cartridges, and  sacks for holding earth.  Alert Bay Liberals Organize  Alert Bay, long known as a  Conservative stronghold, has  formed a Liberal Association,  which, although only of recent  origin, is growing apace. It is  felt by many people at that place,  as indeed all over the province,  that the present government has  already been in power too long  for the public good. By the  rapid rate at which the membership roll of the infant organization is increasing it is shown  that a long felt want is supplied,  it only requiring the services of  a few unselfish and high-principled men to set in motion a  movement that is destined to  sweep that part of the district.  In Mr. E. H. Robinson as secretary-treasurer the association  has a man of ability and energy  who is already on the job in real  earnest.  Mr, and Mrs. J. H.

Behnson,,M.P.P., regarding  ' his British citizenship should put  a quietus on the whimperings of  irresponsible parties to , whom  British-fair play is a thing to be  talked of, but not acted on..  ��������� Personally,' we regret that  after the many years of service  rendered to: the province, it  should have been necessary for  the member for Victoria to pub-  licly assert his loyalty. But does  not Mr. Behrison appear to have  been a'little inconsistent? . He  says:, "I want to allude to the  question of . British fair play,  which extends to all citizens  alike, whether native-born or  naturalized." Later on in his  speech he states that "it is impossible to have two classes."  Now we wish to ask the question of Mr. Behnson, or anyone  else, is this true in respect to  British subjects resident in British Columbia? Is British fair  play extended to all citizens alike,  and is it "impossible to have two  classes?"  Not so very long ago, by an  amendment to the Elections Act  enacted by ��������� the Legislative Assembly, of which Mr. Behnson is  a member', British subjects were,  as far as this province is concerned, divided-into two classes:  nativerborn and naturalized!  Under thi$amendment a citizen desiring to put himself in the  position of being able to use his  right of the franchise must not  only take oath that he is a British  subject, but must declare which  kind of a British subject he is,  native-born or naturalized. Evidently it is not impossible to have  two classes in B. C. Nor is this  all. By the aforementioned  amendment, the person who takes  oath that he is a native-born  British subject is entitled to have  his name registered without more  ado, but not so the British subject of the other class. He first  must take oath that he is a British subject; next he must state  what kind of a British subject  he is. Being of the naturalized  class his oath is not sufficient,  even when given under the liabili-,  ty of fourteen years imprisonment for false swearing. He  must prove that he is not committing perjury by producing  his certificate of naturalization  for inspection. Who can say after  this 'that British fair play is extended to all citizens alike,  whether native-born or naturalized, or, that "it is impossible to  have two classes."  The Courier, while sympathizing sincerely with Mr. Behnson  and congratulating him on his  frank statement, cannot refrain  from saying that in giving the  amendment to the Elections Act  herein alluded to, his support, he  did not set any' great stock in  "British fair play."  That would'have been a capital  opportunity for that gentleman  to have put to shame those re:  sponsible for the most nefariously un-British piece of legislation  of modern times. Had Mr.  Behnson^stood vout at that time  for fair play to all alike, his recent speech would certainly have  had a truer ring to it, and would,  we believe, have had a far better  and fuller effect on Mr. Behnson 's critics.  TION AND SUPERVISION  If this was not written to influence people to deal with the  company, then why was it written at all?  Can Mr. Bowser prove that  this article in the British Columbia Magazine so failed in its object that not one reader was induced to deposit his-money with  Dominion Trust Company, Ltd. ?  A Question For Mr. Bowser.  Judging from the report of  Hon. .W. J. Bowser's speech on  the Dominion Trust Comapany's  case, as reported by the Vancouver News-Advertiser, the attorney-general'seems to scout the  idea that any person could possibly have been influenced to deposit money with the company  (to use Mr. Bowser's own words)  "through the legislation we passed in this House or because of  the stand which the government  took." On this matter he challenged the member for Newcastle, Mr. Parker-Williams.  We happen to have a copy of  the British Columbia Magazine  in which appears an article under,  the heading:  Financial Institution of  British  Columbia.  The Dominion Trust Company  Limited.  The attorney-general's detective instinct is simply wonderful.  With marvellous foresight he  sees the province threatened  with a new industry���������kelp-reduction, .or the. convertion of  kelp into potash, iodine, sugar,  mucilage, algin, or other-products.  Straightway the government  introduces a bill licensing kelp1  reduction works, making it unlawful to operate such a plant in  the province unless and until a  license is .taken out, and the annual fee of $100 paid. The penalty for operating a reduction  works without a license is a fine  of not less than $400, nor more  than $800, and each day of illegal  operation constitutes a separate  offence.  And so the McBricte government proposes to deal with new  industries, through lack of which  the province is faced with the  serious problem of unemployment. So it was with the fur-  farming industry, which, encouraged in the East, is heavily  taxed in this province.  Anything to derive a little  revenue. The Queen Charlotte  Islands and other parts of the  northern coast have abundance  of kelp, and may someday greatly benefit from this newindustry:  But still we find Wm. Manson,  M.P.P., for Skeena, sitting by  and voting blindly for every government measure regardless of  whether it is in the interests of  his district or not.  o     o     o     o     o  How They Do It in Ontario.  Our attention has been called  to the following item clipped  from a Toronto newspaper:  "Hon. 1. B. Lucas, attorney-  general, announces that he has  severed his connection with two  : legal firms in view of his appoint-  Following this article through  we come to part of a paragraph  which reads: "Its (The Dominion Trust Co.'s)'integrity is guaranteed by the character ,of each  member of its board of directors,  and not by any single one; by  the.capital and abundant reserve  of the company; by the company's  bond with the Government, and  GOVERNMENT' EX AM IN A-1 ment as attorney-general. These  firms are Lucas, Raney & Henry,  of Markdale; and Miller, Raney,  Lucas & Hales, of Toronto. Mr.  Lucas says that he feels his whole  time -will be taken up with the  administration of his department.  He does not feel that it would be  just to himself or the government to retain any legal connections."  This is all very well for an  Ontario attorney-general, but we  do things quite differently in  British Columbia. What we  have ' we . hold, and what we  haven't we go after. Our attorney-general carries this excellent  principle so far that a legal case  has had to be stopped because  it was discovered that his firm:j  was connected with both sides  of it.

Nothing  is to be done to reduce the cost  of living by encouraging the  settlement of the agricultural  lands .and thereby increasing the  home production. Not very long  ago the members of the legislature took upon themselves to  raise the amount of their sessional indemnities, but now that the  province is impoverished financially we do not hear of them  voluntarily cutting down their  allowance at all. The government  can pay $105,000 to two men for  assisting in the purchase of an  Indian reserve. They can pay  $80,000 to two parties who acted  as middlemen in the Kitsilano  fiasco.

Immediately there  arose a dissension in regard to  tion.  This    constitution,    however,  still required the ratification of  the several states, and would not  pass  into effect until  at   least  nine out of the thirteen had signified assent.    It was nearly a  year    before   the    constitution  passed   from  theory  into  fact,  when nine signatories were obtained; yet the contest between  the   Federalists   and   the  anti-  Federalists continued.    By small  majorities New York  and   Virginia ratified, but North Carolina  and Rhode Island still held out.  Then the pressure was applied.  The duties imposed on imports  from foreign countries were expressly directed to apply to imports from these states.    North  Carolina was brought to terms,  but Rhode Island was obdurate.  A: Bill was then introduced directing the president to suspend com-  the proposed system of represen- j mercial intercourse with the little  OODS  td.

To hold the states together, Alexander Hamilton, according to his  own  showing,  appealed  to  the  self-interest of the individuals  composing them by the assump-j  tion of the State debts, the establishment of a National bank,  and a system of Protection, by  which a class of manufacturers  would be created dependent for  prosperity on the Peberal government.    This system remains as  the bond which holds together,  if not the Government, at least  the  Republican party.    It may-  well be doubted that any argument for Protection can prevail  in face of the judgment of ex-  President   Roosevelt   upon   the  conduct of the interested class.  In his situation  he must have  considerable    first-hand    knowledge of the thing of which he  speaks. * In  a message to Congress in February, 1908, he affirms that: "Every measure for  honesty in business that has been  passed during the last six years  has been opposed by these men  on its passage and in its administration with every resource that  bitter   and   unscrupulous   craft  could suggest and the command  of almostunlimited money secure.  The methods by which those engaged   in   combinations  have  achieved great fortunes can only  be justified by the advocacy of a  system of morality which would  also justify every form of criminality on  the  part of  a  labor  union, and every form of violence,  corruption and fraud, from murder to   bribery  and   ballot-box  stuffing in politics There  wealth has been accumulated on  a giant scale by all forms of  iniquity, ranging from the oppression of wage-workers to unfair and unwholesome methods  of crushing out competition, and  to defrauding the public by stockjobbing and the manipulation of  securities."

Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  HTHE 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  rainfalland 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.  CZD  OELLA COOLA 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.  @  c )  Sole agents for Arthur Bell & Sons' Famous  Scotch Whiskey, Perth, Scotland.

JOSEPH O'CONNOR.  Dated, January 15, 1915.  H. V. MOREHOUSE. Asrent.  VANCOUVER LAND DISTRICT  Sir,���������I wish to address a few  words to you in regard id the  subject matter of your letter .appearing in last week's issue of  this paper, and request that you  will be 'good enough to accept  them as coming from me personally, altogether apart from my  connection with the "Courier."  May I, first of-all, remind you  that charges have been imade  against the government you so'ar-  dently support, and the Conservative^! ub whose reputation you  are so anxious to defend, not only  by the Courier, but by speakers  from the public platform.  Personally, I have charged  your Government (as you choose  to call it) with having failed to  cafry out its pledges to the people,  ,1 have charged your government  with prodigality, corruption,  and graft. I now charge the  Bella Coola Conservative club  with being "pedlars of petty appointments," to use your* own  term. You "have yet to be-convinced that any of the road-bosses enquire as to a man's politics  before giving him a promise of  work;",I am convinced; because  I know of specific instances} 'Further, I know of cases where officers in your club have stipulated  that a man must"first jqin the  club before standing a chance of  a job. .-.'-.  Sir, kindly correct me if. I am  in error in assuming that you include yourself in the "intelligent  and discerning electorate,^' as it  is with this assumption that I  invite you to meet me in public  discussion on provincial matters.  I also, have yet to be convinced  on certain matters, for instance,  the things "substantial and permanent" which have resulted  "directly owing to the activity  of the local Conservative .party  during the last few years." Further, I am particularly desirous  of knowing more definitely what  you mean when you claim that  your government "has done, and  is doing, the best that it can for  our Province* and the people at  large."  I take it that, in the interests  of your party, you would not be  adverse to being responsible for  the conversion of at least one  Liberal vote, and now beg to  offer you an opportunity. Do  you accept it, or do you still prefer the regular way of playing  the "spider and the fly," and increasing the membership roll of  the Conservative club wholely  and solely by the distribution of  political patronage?  A line to me personally or  through the medium of this paper  will receive.-my immediate attention, and may perhaps mean  the conversion of. a" poor misguided Liberal into an "intelligent and discerning" elector.  In conclusion I .must say that  I know of several "little Latin  mottoes," and am awaiting evidence of which one will appropriately apply to you. I sincerely trust that I will not be compelled to choose one suggestive  of "vapourings".  I am, Sir,  Yours etc.,  Hubert L. Harris.  Box 74, Bella Coola:  February 13, 1915.
