Prolonged*' conversations have been  held^with Baron Sonnino, who  h'as^gsisted on the necessity oi  Italylmaking a strong demonstra-  tiorit-Albania, thus making a repercussion on the general Balkan  situation.  iv*.  -3  ���������fit**',**  (Sure of Final Victory  (|Pafis, Feb.'

Vfe are beginning to get proofs  which show beyond all doubt  that German power is waning.  The signs are such as cannot be  m'istaken by competent persons.  These signs and proofs relate  more particularly to the morale  of-the German army. The quality and material condition of the  troops permit us to conclude that  our enemy is now entering upon  a period of exhaustion."  Norwegian  Town  , "" Burned Down  ,C.  UBWS&i  ' Christiania, Norway, Feb. 1.���������-  Molde, a small town south of  Christiansund, has been wiped  out entirely by a fire on January  22. Over 2000 people were rendered homeless by the conflagration.  Museums Closing Down  London, Feb. 2.���������The Wallace  art collection museum closed its  doors to the general public yesterday. The closing of museums  and art galleries for the remainder of the war, is a step in the interests of economy. It is predicted that the British museum  will also close its doors in the  hear future, already the national  portrait gallery is closed to the  public.  '������$*Rioting apteipzig  London, Feb. 2.���������Bloody rioting occurred recently at Leipzig  of so grave a nature that infantry  from Cologne had to be drafted  in to quell the disturbance.   It is  believed that other serious dis-  '���������Qritr^ have taken place in various  centers.  Ship Fish to Honolulu  Prince Rupert Extending Her  Markets for Frozen Fish  Vancouver, Feb. 3���������Prince Rupert is stealing the fish business  from Seattle and Vancouver in  every direction. Not content  with getting a large share of the  Eastern business the Rupert fish  merchants have been gradually  forcing their hands into the markets at Vancouver and Seattle.  ���������Now they have arranged to ship  frozen fish to Honolulu, which is  the legitimate business of the  Sound metropolis.  Fishing out of Prince Rupert  has fallen off slightly during tht  past few weeks, due to the cold  weather, With the passing pi  the low temperatures, which  have been exceptionally keen in  Hecate Strait and in the vicinity  of Yakutat, the fishermen hope  to get their usual large catches.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  Canal Will Be Open  Middle of February  New York, Feb. 2.���������Government officials at Panama are confident the canal will be "open tc  traffic of all descriptions by the  middle of February.  Colonel E. F. Glenn, returning  from a six-weeks' visit to the  canal brought this report, adding  that a channel 20 feet deep had  been restored at all points.  This news will be received with  delight by the seafaring men on  both the Atlantic and Pacific  oceans who had the prospects of  a trip through the Strait of Magellan. All ships now loading  at British Columbia and Puget  Sound ports will be able to use  the canal on the way to the United Kingdom, and thus will save  five weeks.  The slide in the Panama canal,  which occurred last September,  paralyzed shipping for a time.  Hundreds of vessels were, tied  up at both ends of the ditch, and  finally were ordered to use the  Strait of Magellan. This has  caused serious delay in the landing of war supplies and foodstuffs. The opening of the canal  will result in these shipments  being landed in half the time required by using the strait.  Will Cost Germany  $20,000,000 a Day  Paris, Feb. 2. ��������� Alfred Ney-  marck, the eminent economist,  writes: 1 have just made a care-  fid-study of the war finances of  the warring nations and have arrived at the following figures:  Germany's military expenditures are $18,000,000 daily.  Owing to advances to Bulgaria  and Turkey and help accorded to  Austria-Hungary, these expenditures shortly will reach $20,000,-  000 daily, or $600,000,000 monthly.  S. S. Venture ended up her-run  to Bella Coola by getting befiind  the schedule time. The weathei  was to blame. She was tied up  for 24 hours at Naden ���������harbor  waiting for the wind to abate.  Therefore she was just that much  belated when she came into,the  harbor Saturday evening about  six o'clock.  Some of the Bella Coolaites  went away, some to go to the  war and some on business. Those  who left were Peter Marrin, J.  Dawe, Dr. W. J. Quinlan, R; 0.  Jennings and Mr. Col borne."/  Chas. Tucker, Dominion constable, returned after spending  about three weeks up north trying to get to Kitimaat., He stayed at Hartley Bay for a week  waiting for a chance to go up  Douglas Channel; but the wind  was blowing, a gale all. that time,  making it impossible for anything short of an ocean liner to  face it. He reports spending an  agreeable time at Hartley Bay,  subsisting on a diet of -salt salmon  exclusively. It is believed that  this partial abstinence forced upon him" had a very beneficial influence. He is not apt, however,  to repeat the experience voluntarily.          Peter Marrin and J. Dawe left  for Prince Rupert to join the  Comox-Atlin regiment? Recruits  from Bella Coola are leaving on  every boat. Some more are going this week.  R. O. Jennings, road-superintendent, after spending, two  weeks in the valley looking after  the interests of the government  and the settlement as regards  public works, left for parts unknown. *  It is to be regretted that his  health was not of the best during his stay here and that being  the case it is surmised that he  returned home. Next time he  pays a visit we shall try to greet  him with more agreeable weather  or in other words a warmer welcome.       __ ___   The officers of the S. S. Venture reported very heavy winter  a  weather all along the coast. It  was felt especially so by the  people of the Queen Charlotte  Islands, who have made small  provision for the feeding of their  live stock.  Owing to its situation the  Queen Charlotte Islands are noted  for their mild climate. Cattle  as a rule feed outside all winter.  The present cold weather was  wholly unexpected and unprovided for and, therefore, in some  parts the loss in live stock may  prove quite heavy.  Dr. Quinlan went to Namu believing a change of climate would  be found agreeable. If it is not  up to expectations he may go  further south; but eventually he  will be back in Bella Coola.  The cold weather has at last  claimed a victim. The community   was   shocked... Wednesday  noon by the news of the sudden  . ������   ���������  death of Mrs. Mathilde Brough-  ton, wife of Mr. Frank Brough-  ton, at her mother's residence at  Hagensborg on Wednesday, February 2. at 11 a. m.  She, in common with several  others of our residents, had been  on the sick list for a few days,  but no one considered her sickness at all serious. Her husband  was attending to his duties as  usual at the town at the time,  not . entertaining any real uneasiness in regard to his wife's  condition. The death was so  sudden and unexpected that her  husband did not have time to  reach her bedside before she  passed away.  The deceased was the daughter  of Mrs. Nordschow. Her father,  the late Eric Nordschow, was one  of the earliest settlers in the  valley, and after Rev. Saugstad's  death one of its most prominent  citizens.  Mrs. B rough ton was born in  Badger, Iowa, and came with her  mother and sisters to Bella Coola  in 1895 to join her father, who  came here the previous year with  the first contingent of Colonists.  On November 4th last year, she  was united in marriage to Mr.  F. Broughton, provincial constable for this district.  Her departure will be keenly  felt by the community, in the  midst of which she spent the  greater part of her life.  At the time of going to press  it is not known when the funeral  will take place.  The sympathies of their^host  of friends are extended to the  bereaved husband, mother and  sisters.   Bella Coola has always lived  up to her reputation of having a  very healthful climate. Th������. cold,  w'eather.of the month just closed  has made a break in this enviable  record in that very many of our  inhabitants have been on the sick  list. Although several of those  attacked have been obliged to  take to their beds; there have  been no deaths. With the return of milder weather it is hoped  they will all recover rapidly.  As there is grave danger of  being hit by falling branches and  trees during high winds in the  woods, men engaged in logging  operations suspended their work  last week. As the wind has now  moderated appreciably the logging has been resumed. The Indians are engaged in cutting and  hauling forty cords of shingle  bolts to Hanson's mill.  The shingles to be cut from  them will be-used largely in covering the gymnasium to be built  in the Indian village next fall.

Another result of the unusual  weather conditions, several meetings announced to be held at different times and places have  been postponed.  Rev. H. Sageng informs us that  among others, the annual meeting of his congregation was postponed from January 22 until today.  T___  The postmaster of Hagensborg  informs us that the mail from  Atnarko and Firvale failed to  arrive last week.  Born, on Tuesday at the hospital to Mr. and Mrs. John Widsten  a son.          It is with great pleasure wej  announce to our readers the promotion of our fellow-townsmen,  T. C. Colwell and Randolph  Saugstad, from privates to the  rank of "corporals. We congratulate them upon their merited promotion and predict that after  further experience they will continue to rise.  It may be a coincidence, but  we cannot refrain from pointing  to the fact that these two gentlemen are the only ones we send  the Courier to at Comox so far.  Moral: If you want promotion,  boys; send for the Courier.  The 102nd Battalion, the North  ern British Columbias, has secured what is conceded to be one  of the finest site's for a military  training'camp in the province.  This site is the Imperial government's naval camp site at Comox.  The site is situated on a big sandpit running into Comox Harbor.  This sandpit is about two miles  long, of varying width and as  level as a billiard table, with a  fine shelving beach which as soon  as the weather moderates will  afford one of the finest bathing  places on the Pacific coast.  The camp is equipped with one  of the most modern rifle ranges  in the world, being a 1000 yard  range fitted up with concrete  butts and disappearing targets.  This range is the only one used  regularly by the Imperial Nav-^1  Forces stationed on the Pacific  coast for target practice, and the  Northern unit has been particularly lucky in securing the use of  this splendid location as training  grounds. '  According to Major Worsncp  of the 102nd, the athletic propensities of the battalion are being well taken care of, as boxing  gloves, fencing foils, footballs,  basket ball outfits and a complete bfcselall outfit have already  arrived at the camp. '  With 300 men already actively  drilling at Comox and some 500  more sworn in in various parts  of the province awaiting orders  to proceed to the mobilization  quarters this battalion will soon  be up-to its full strength.  Our friend Wesley Grummett  has discovered that the manufacturers of munitions of war in  United States are really shipping  them to the Germans. This is  how he expresses it:  HOODWINKING ENGLAND.    .  We are busy said O'Connor and  McNulty,  Shipping shrapnel to the Teutons  every day,  And we do not find the slightest  difficulty  In transporting it or getting all  our pay.  When 1 questioned them to tell  me how they do it,  How they break their way thro'  England's strong blockade;  They laughed and  said  there's  nothing to it  England's  navy is  in  fact our  greatest aid.  England seizes it but pays without a question,  Lands it promptly at the docks  at Calais;  Tommy Atkins' needing scarcely  a suggestion  Shoots it over to the Teutons  right away.  ���������ooo ^������r^<*������o <���������*���������������>-rscx"**  I  ffitrurrl) Ntfttre  Sunday School     ���������     10:45 a. m.

SATURDAY,  FEB. 5, 1916.  A Hyp'ocritical and Cruel  '. -  Demand. V.  ,    -    -    ' v  The attitude of Germany and  her sympathizers in the now celebrated Baralong" case is", to our  mind, one of the-most peculiar  we have run across for a long  time.  It seems that a German -submarine was caught in the act of  .   trying to;sin'k:a merchant vessel  and the -officers of the British  craft, which made the capture,  in their ^exasperation  over the  illegal manner of German war-  ��������� fare, threw some of the subma-  - rine crew , overboard,  with the  result that they drowned. .  Far from us to defend the taking of human lives needlessly,  and acts like the one in the Baralong affair "should be condemned;  "but in all criminal cases, in order  to arrive at a just estimate of the  guilt, it is necessary that extenuating circumstances be taken into  consideration.  In view of the inhumanity  shown by- the Germans in torpedoing passenger ships without  adequate provisions being made  for the safety of men, women  and children; and in view of the  many unoffending and unresisting non-combatants that have  been shot down in cold blood by  orders of German officials for  acts of others which in many  cases have been done in self  defense, it is not strange if some  hotheaded Britisher would feel  justified in executing judgment  upon the murderers caught in  similar aets.  But how we come to the strange  part of jt, Germany and her  sympathizers hold up their hands  in holy horror over the inhuman  act of the British officers'and.de-  mand that the British law punish  the offenders. Germany threatens that if JBritain does not yield  to her demands, that she will  shoot down in cold blood innocent  prisoners of war in Germany.  We have no doubt Germany  would take great pleasure in  getting a. chance to wreak her  vengeance upon a few more innocent people, because it seems  that murder and devastation is  an agreeable pastime for her  cruel, brutal nature.  There will come a time when  all the innocent blood shed; all  the other direful deeds and all  the misery wrought by this war,  will be required out of the ;hands  of those who brought it about.  "Vengeance is mine, I will repay  ,This community has the misfortune to have circulated in its  midst a pro-German newspaper  published at iMinneapolis, Minnesota.  On account of its position as  the organ of a church demonina-  tion and its supposedly, large .circulation .in Canada,'it would be a  great deal" better -if "in' its utter-  ances'uppn.^the'incidents"of the  war it' would "confine itself to a  strict-neutrality; but such' is not  the case.    It lets no opportunity  pass to vent its hatred for everything English,and to utter sneers  upon the cause and the activities  of the Allies.  In its last issue received here,  it ridicules the idea that the Allies  had any-higher regard for the  neutrality of Belgium than Germany, and designates the English  contention in that respect as pure  hypocrisy..   In  proof of its accusation it brings" forth-.the Allies' occupation of Corfu in viola-  of Greek neutrality and.against  the protests of .Greece. ��������� - "���������.,;,j ���������>;'  -':There,-.is a difference..so vast,  between th'e illegal   actions, of  Germany and "the Allies in these  two cases  as there -is between  night and'day.

Germ-,  any's attack upon Belgium was to  compel a weaker nation to violate  a sacred treaty and to crush another; while-the Allies occupied  Greek soil  to enable Greece to  to protect the weak against the  onslaughts of its powerful enemies.

On the  heels of this information we are  informed ..that the desired conditions have been.dealt with satisfactorily, and' as a consequence  another   resignation   had   been  cabled  from London   and  been  duly received; whereupon some  sarcastic comments were made  by the' premier of the province  'and the Conservative press; of  which   we  made   mention  two  weeks ago.

Indications  are beginning to  multiply that this war may not  be settled by some great victory  on the bactlefield; but rather by.  a failure of being able to finance  it.    We reprint below an article  taken from the Vancouver World  at the beginning of last month,  asserting that conditions in Germany as indicated in New York  financial   circles   were   already  serious.    Things have gone from  bad   to   worse   since,   which is  shown by the fact that the German marks are constantly dropping in price, and that, according  to a news item, German securi  ties are being offered in Norway  at 50 per cent discount with few  or no buyers.    The World says:  "The German government can  no longer hide the fact that the  end of its resources for prosecuting the war are in sight.    It is  being forced to make open appeal  for assistance, and  so  badly is  this assistance needed that it is  making most extravagant offers  for it.    No matter how  strong  may be the German trenches in  France and Flanders,  Germany  cannot continue the war if she  has not the money and the.appeal for money that she is now  making in the United States indicates that the bottom  of the  war chest is already in sight.  "It was thought the Allies were  paying a high rate of interest  for their recent loan when the  bonds were sold to yield 5 3-4 per  cent. Germany is now offering  the American investor as high as  ten per cent for his money.  "A banking firm in New York  is offering five per cent bonds,  callable  in  1924,   with   interest  payable  half  yearly,   and  with  exemption from all  taxation in  Germany, at a price which would  give the investor nine per cent.  And this high interest is not due  to the high rate of exchange. At  normal   exchange,   the yield on  such   German   bonds  would   be  eight per cent, but at present exchange the buyer of the German  bond would make a profit of ten  per cent on exchange alone. The  bond itself is sold at enough below par to yield an annual interest of eight per cent.  " This is an enormous rate of  interest for the German' government to offer. Unless the German government expected to be  desperately in need of money,  could it afford to pay it?  "It is said, however, that this  enticing interest is not proving  very fruitful. New York investors are not anxious to tak^e  the German bonds even at the  price pffeppd.''

Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent,  they are strangers to hard times.  HPHE 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 faim produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty -first prizes.

The value of German and Austrian securities continues to fall  so fast that if the depreciation  continues in a very short time the  currency of Austria in particular  will possess about as much value  as bills of the late southern confederacy. Two months ago the  value of the krone had fallen  511-2 per cent in Holland. Austria is near bankruptcy, and Germany h rapidly heading that  way.

With the exception  f  the  war,  there  is  no other  question   before  the   people  of  Canada today of so great importance.    If .Canadian workmen had  the requisite training, many orders  which "now go to foieign  manufacturers would be filled in  Canada.    Not only.that, but such  training  would- be a great advantage in   the   intelligent development of the country's vast  natural resources.    It is not so  much a question of the lack of j  capital that handicaps Canadian ���������  manufacturers as it is  of  not  having sufficient skilled help."  Mangel Beets for Poultry..
