Falken-  ���������hayne had a conference with  KingConstantine, It is believed  that the Teutons are planning a  drive through Macedonia upon  Saloniki in the early spring.  Increasing activity of the enemy in Macedonia indicates a  move against Gen. Sarrail's army  contemplated shortly. Sharp  fighting has been in progress on  Macedonian front in,the last few  days, possibly presaging more  extensive operations on the part  of the enemy.

The Farmers'' Institute will  hold a meeting at the Colony  Hall, Hagensborg, Saturday,  February 3rd, at 1:30 p. m.y  Subject to be discussed:  "Co-operation and 3the Marketing of our Produce."  One member to serve on the  Executive Board will be elected  to fill vacancy.  O. J. Nygaard, Secretary.  Constable Frank Broughton as  member of the Red Cross and  Patriotic Fund Committee, ,is  nowsendingout appeals to those  of our citizens who have not become regular contributors to the  Patriotic Fund.  It is regretable, but true, that  there are many people yet who  do not realize their duty towards  the country which gives them a  home and protection in their pursuit of the things necessary to  live and to enjoy life;, men who  have not been affected by the  ravages of war and therefore are  able to add to their savings every  year, seems <as large.as before  the war, and who just ignore  .their part in^the struggle and  try to escape their responsibilities. ��������� , "  ' The Patriotic  Fund   tries to  help the families of those whose  bread winners have gone to the  war.   For that reason everybody  shoujd-.contribute to this Fund,  and not- by indifference and hard-  heartedness deny the comforts  of life..to those' whose protectors  and providers have taken their  life in their hands to fight for  our common cause, and country.  In this year, 1917, British Columbia will need $2,000,000 for  this Fund, and is expected to  raise one half of this amount.  .The rest will be drawn from the  general fund.  ������  Now let us rise to the occasion  and show that we, who stay at  home and do no "fighting, are  willing to pay, anyhow.,  The order, of the hour is���������  "Either Fight Or Pay." -All except 60 cents of every $100 will  reach the families of the soldiers;  so there should be no talk or  even suspicion of graft in connection with the handling of this  money/  ���������  F. A; Johnson, A. E. and.R.  Owens took a trip to Ocean Falls  last week. It is rumored they  contemplate entering upon extensive logging operations at  Quatna for the Ocean Falls Co.  Last week the settlers had  several of the annual meetings  of local organizations held at  Hagensborg.  ' These meetings were, in spite  of the most wretched weather  conditions, very well attended  and testified to the fact that the  people still retain a strong inter-'  est in public affairs.,  We have already reported the  proceedings of the Farmers'In-  stitute and the Hospital organization.  The Lutheran Church held its  annual meeting at the Hagensborg Church, Wednesday afternoon of the same week. Rev,  H. Sageng presided. As the different reports were handed in  and commented on, the fact became very much to the fore that  the members and pastor of this  church have shown considerable  activity the last year, although  of a strictly routine nature. The  various objects for which the  church is working have been  well supported from a financial  point of view and showed no  falling off because of, financial,  depression. It was decided to  callanother meeting in the near  future for, the purpose of discussing ways, by which the work  of the church may be made still  more effective during the year.  We are glad to note that the  boys from Bella Coola are making their mark at the front. P'te  John Nygaard has been promoted  to corporal and lance-corporal  F. C. Grant is now a sergeant.  The war has demonstrated that  the boys who have lived in the  peaceful surroundings of Bella  Coola are "not lacking in the  qualities that are supposed to be  developed only amid strife and  difficulties.  Although it is rather late in  the day for a newspaper to relate  were praised by divisional and  corps commanders.  "No doubt you know all about  our  casualties   by now.     Bert  Anderson and Harry Gustafson  wore the only two of the Bella  Coola boys to get hit.    My company happened to miss the first  show, as "we went into the front  trenches in the night for the  purpose of going "over the top"  the next day;  but orders were  cancelled and .they took the other  three companies out and left us  in for 48 hours, then took us out  and sent the others in. ��������� Believe  me, we were pretty well "all in."  The next morning, they  went  over and the next night we relieved B company and "you can't  imagine how glad I was to hear  John's (Nygaard) voice.    God!  it was a relief to find them all  alive.   I hardly dared  to hope  that  all   of  them  would   get  through  safe,   but   there   they  were, very 'much alive at that.  It was next time "over" that H.  Gustafson got his wound.    "A"  company went over that time,  but I had been sent in charge of  acarrying partywith the French '  mortar battalion, so I missed that  too".   John Nygaar.d-fwas in it and  had lots of sport banging away  at "Fritz" when he counter-attacked.   Believe'me; I have seen  war in its grim, reality now ar.'d  it is "no small game.'    '"   ."    ,f  "I have been lucky so far.   I  had that carryingparty for three  weeks and did' not lose a man. '  We carried bombs up in: broad  daylight under heavy shell fire,  not a regular barrage fire,, but  heavy enough.    A fellow ��������� does  not mind   the   shells   bursting  around him after he has been up  there awhile.     Of course  you  don't seek for them by a long  ���������  shot.   It is wonderful, though,  how close they can come to you  without k"getting" you.  "Am looking for the Xmas  boxes with pleased anticipation.  A Happy New Year to all friends  in Bella Coola.

One of'our boys, Alfred Ove-  son, who enlisted about a year  ago, has distinguished himself  by conspicuous bravery in the  face of heavy shell firetas as despatch bearer at the front.   '  For his exceptional heroic conduct he was awarded the military  cross. It is no small thing to  thus make himself conspicuous  for bravery amid armies of heroes, and we are justly proud of  our fellow citizen. We take off  our hats to Alfred Oveson!  Through the courtesy of T. P.  Saugstad we are enabled to publish a letter from-his brother,  Corporal Randolph Saugstad,  who is fighting "Fritz" in the  Somme valley, "somewhere in  France."  "Well, here we are again safe  and sound after a spell of pretty  severe fighting on the Somme  front. I believe I can tell you  now, as we are away from there,  that our battalion did good work,  took their objective, .everything;  they wentf "over the top" and  years was engaged in connection  with public works in the valley,  is reported killed at the front.' '  One of the most valued and  trusted employees of the firm of  McLennan, McFeely & Co., passed away at the General Hospital, Vancouver, on the 6th inst.  He was Mr. W. A.

Mr. McMartin, who was only 35  years of age, had been in the  employ of the company for the  past eight years, the major part  of the time as a travelling salesman, but recently he was placed  in charge of the city sales department.  In his capacity of travelling  salesman he was well known to  the merchants and others of  Bella Coola.

Last week we referred to a  recent speech 'by Sir Robert  Borden at Ottowa, in which he  ��������� intimated that it might become  necessary to adopt drastic measures to obtain soldiers. Our attitude on this .subject under the  presnt circumstances is in favor  of conscription.       ,  This week we bring1 before our  readers the position taken by the  B. C. Federationist, the official  organ of organized labor in the  province.  Its views on conscription may  differ from ours, but when it calls  attention to ' material -things  which should be subjected to  conscription as well as the man  power of the Dominion, we cannot deny the justice of its contention.    We quote in part:  "For Sir Robert Borden and  his government to proceed along  the line of action he is evidently  contemplating, will be nothing  short of potitical suicide by him.  For the government to attempt  to coerce and compel, by methods  of conscription, the workers of  Canada to shoulder still heavier  burdens, while at the same time  ��������� protecting and defending the  class of parasites who are fattening and growing wealthy out  of the products of labor destined  for war service, and the sustenance of the people while the war  is on, will be to array class  against class in Canada in a most  bitter and vindictive political  struggle at a time when the  united support of all should be  sought for the co-operative solving of the problem of winning  the war.  "Let riot-Sir Robert, delude  himself that Canadian workers  are wholly lacking in an understanding of the situation of public aff airs as it exists today. The  workers of Canada have, as he  ' says, about reached the end of  voluntary enlistment, not because they are altogether lacking  in a desire to serve the Empire,  but, because their patriotism has  been chilled and made cautious  by the scandalous' manner in  which Canada's participation: in  the war has been handled. Exposures of graft in high places  have disgusted them, nepotism  and party preferment in the expeditionary forces has angered  and f disheartened them. The  equipping of the troops with defective rifles and the stories of  profligacy and mismanagement  has repelled them.  If the Conservative  govern-  has an ounce of political sense  I in its party-bound constitution,  it will take heed of the gather-  a  ing storm that is about to burst  upon it.  "The workers of Canada are  not so much imbued with the  desire to wreck and punish the  government as they are to force  that government to adopt a public policy in line with the needs  of the empire in the war and the  citizens' pride'in their country.  "Throw overboard the rotten  gang of ghouls who are profiting  out of the war.  "Chase into oblivion the pestiferous gangof military humbugs  who are drawing fat salaries  while rendering no commensurate service to their country.  "See to it that rewards and  and pensions are equal, irrespective of rank or influence..  "Do these things and many  others that will ho doubt suggest  themselves to an honest and patriotic administration, and the  government will have wiped out  most of the existing reasons for  slow recruiting; and then if voluntary enlistment fails, the government may apply with a reasonable show of fairness that the  burdens of war will not be all  carried, as at present, by the  working class."  ,   O'1 o ���������   o      o     o  The Compensation Board.  The appointment of the three  Commissioners under the Workmen's Compensation Act, is the  first important act'of that kind  made  by the new government  - ilk'  and has, therefore, received unusual attention, being considered an indication of tlje government's ability, to act wisely for  the best interest of the province  and preserve its independence  from political pressure and interference.  There were one hundred and!  fifty applicants, some of which  were supported by strong lobbies, but the1 three selected were  not among them; they were chosen because of thejr eminent fitness for the position.

The third member is Parker  Williams, who.for the last fourteen years has made himself well  and favorably known throughout  the province as the able exponent, and defender" of the rights  of labor on the floor of the provincial house as member ' for  Newcastle.  The board as constituted is remarkably well balanced, Mr.  Winn is qualified to interpret the  legal aspects of the Act and the  cases cropping up; while Mr.  Gilmour will represent the views  of the business world and- Mr.  Williams those of labor..  And it must be said that even  the .opposition press finds very  ittle fault with these appoint-  ��������� (j      i  ments, in fact; they on the whole  give the appointments' their approval..  As the new governriient is progressing in its work of administration, the fact,becomes more  and more apparent that the confidence the people showed in'Mr.  Brewster at the last election was  not misplaced, and as times go  on both he, his colleagues and the  party in power, will steadily  grow in favor with the.people.  O      O      O      0      o  Premier Brewster:���������"All that  this province wants is an intelligent application of common business sense to develop it. " We  must get down to development  instead of trying to wildcat out  our natural resources and get  rich in- 24 hours. I believe that  if you give your new government  an opportunity to get down to  worlf you will see British Columbia "go ahead with leaps and  bounds in the next few years in  the development of our natural  res6urcf(TsT~I want you to have  a little faith in B. C. and in your  Government."  Yes, the Hon. H. C. Brewster  has a big field for operating in  and there is a lot of room for  improvement inx every branch of  our government as well as in the  development of our natural resources.'  Northern- British Columbia is  full of resources that have not  been touched, in fact very few  people have any idea of what  this section of B. C. looks like.  Therefore we say to British Columbia's new premier "go to  it,'* the right-thinking people  will be behind you.  The clay of the grafter, who  has so successfully operated under the guidance of the McBride-  Bowser gang, has come to an  end and the honest man open for  legitimate undertakings of any  kind will now be given a show.

To anyone who was not a blind  follower of the leader in the late  government, the fact must have  been quite plain that Mr. Bowser  in spite of his legal ability was  not a capable administrator.   His  shortcomings  in   this direction  might  have   been  a fault for  which he cannot be justly blamed; because his abilities may not  be of that kind.   But we do find  fault with him in that he acted  as if he considered himself the  most capable   administrator in  the province1 and his party supported him in his 'conceited and.  erroneous conceptions.   And his  conceit',. caused'  him   to   carry  things 'with a high hand,   not  thinking it necessary to be guided by.the wishes of the people.  Just now a case has cropped  up that throws light on this part  of his=character. >   '  In 1912, he acted directly contrary to public sentiment in,that  he refused to.allow South Vancouver to amalgamate or join  with the City of Vancouver, although the ratepayers of the  former municipality voted in  favor of it to the extent of nine  to one and the people of the City  of Vancouver to the extent of  seventy per cent.   ���������  Under.the condition's obtaining  in South Vancouver the-result  of this arbitrary action on, the  part of the late dictator is that  the municipality is unable to meet  its obligations and has found it-  self obliged to appeal to the provincial government for aid.  It is admitted that the govern^  ment of-South Vancouver is to  be blamed for having plunged  the municipality into, heavy debt  by , extravagant expenditures;  but it must also be borne in mind  (t  CLUB OFFER  "\  We have pleasure in announcing that we have made arrangements with two of the leading weekly'publications  so that our subscribers may have the best of reading at  substantially reduced rates.

The  formation of such a pure breed  record under the National Live  Stock  Records would give the  humble goat a, prestige it has  not hitherto enjoyed in Canada.  Moreover, it would mean that  pure bred stock eligible for registration could be imported from  the United States free of duty.'  The   annual    membership   fee  would  be $2.00;  members will  only have to pay half rates for  registrations, etc., and will receive free of charge, publications  issued during each year.   Members will also be entitled to receive   monthly . goat papers. at  reduced rates.  The Department hopes that all  who have the development of the  goat industry at heart will join  in this movement for the advancement of the poor man's  cow. .  At the same time, however; it  is recognized that in British Columbia, at any rate, there are  numbers of people keeping goats  who could not handle1 pure bred  stock, and to whom the formation of a Provincial Association  would have more appeal. To  such people the Li ve Stock branch  states that, with a minimum of  25 members, if would be possible  to incorporate under the B. C.'  Agricultural Act in the same way  as the present Stockbreeders',  Dairymen's and Poultry Associations. In this event, member-  ship would be $1.00 per annum,  and as one of the privileges of  membership members would re-  jceive free subscription to a  j monthly goat paper, which alone  i is worth more than the annual  membership fee.  Anyone interested in the formation, of either the Dominion  Goat Breeders' Association, or a  Provincial Association, -should  communicate with Mr. ,W. T.-  McDonald, Live Stock Commissioner, Department of Agriculture, Victoria, and notify him as  to which one they were willing  to become a member of. In order that thewoik of organizing  the associations may be got under way as soon as possible those  ! interested should not delay in  writing to signify their interest  and desire to become members.

Constable Frank Broughton as  member of the Red Cross and  Patriotic Fund Committee, is  nowsendingout appeals to those  of our citizens who have not become regular contributors to the  Patriotic Fund.  It is regretable, but true, that  there are many people yet who  do not realize their duty towards  the country which gives them a  home and protection in their pursuit of the things necessary to  live and to enjoy life; men who  have not been affected, by the  ravages of war and therefore are  able to add to their savings every  year, seems as large as before  the, war, and who just ignore  their part in������the struggle and  try to escape their responsibilities^  The Patriotic Fund tries to  help the families of those whose  bread winners have gone to the  war. For that reason everybody  shou/d contribute to this Fund,  and not by indifference and hard-  heartedness deny the comforts  of life to those whose protectors  and providers have taken their  life in their hands to fight for  our common cause and country.  In this year, 1917, British Columbia will need $2,000,000 for  this Fund,  and is expected to  j  j raise ono half of this amount.  I The rest will be drawn from the  'general fund.  F. A. Johnson, A. E. and R.  Owens took a trip to Ocean Falls  last week. It is rumored they  contemplate entering upon extensive logging operations at  Quatna for the Ocean Falls Co.  Last week the settlers had  several of the annual meetings  of local organizations held at  Hagensborg.  These meetings were, in spite  of the most wretched weather  conditions, very well attended  and testified to the fact that the  people still retain a strong interest in public affairs.  We have already reported the  proceedings of the Farmers' Institute and the Hospital organization. ,  The Lutheran Church held its  annual meeting at the Hagensborg Church, Wednesday afternoon of the same week. Rev.  H. Sageng presided. As the different reports were handed in  and commented on, the fact became very much to the fore that  the members and pastor of this  church have shown considerable  activity the last year, although  of a strictly routine nature. The  various objects for which the  church is working have been  well supported from a financial  point of view and showed no  falling off because of. financial  depression. It was decided to  call another meeting in the near  future for the purpose of discussing ways by which the work  of the church may be made still  more effective during the year.  ...

"No doubt you know all about  our   casualties   by  now.     Bert  Anderson and Harry Gustafson  were the only two of the Bella  Coola boys to get hit.    My company happened to miss the first  show, as we went into the front  trenches  in  the  night  for the  purpose of going "over the top"  the next day;   but orders were  cancelled and they took the other  three companies out and left us  in for 48 hours, then took us out  and sent the others in.

To anyone who was not a blind  follower of the leader in the late  Igovernment, the fact must have  [been quite plain that Mr. Bowser  fin spite of his legal ability was  fnot a capable administrator.   His  Ishortcomings in   this direction  |might   have   been   a  fault for  fwhich he cannot be justly blam-  fed; because his abilities may not  |be of that kind.    But we do find  ffault with him in that he acted  [as if he considered himself the  fmost capable   administrator in  khe province and his party sup-  fported him in his 'conceited and  ferroneous conceptions.    And his  |conceit^caused    him    to   carry  things "with a high  hand,  not  Ithinking it necessary to be guid-  [ed by.the wishes of the people.  Just now a case has cropped  |up that throws light on this part  lof his character.  In 1912, he acted directly contrary to public sentiment in that  he refused to allow South Vancouver to amalgamate or join  with the City of Vancouver, although the ratepayers of the  former municipality voted in  favor of it to. the extent of nine  to one and the people of the City  of Vancouver to the extent of  seventy per cent.   .  Under the conditions obtaining  in South Vancouver the-result  of this arbitrary action on the  part of the late dictator is that  the municipality is unable to meet  its obligations and has found itself obliged to appeal to the provincial government for aid.  It is admitted that the govern-  ment of South Vancouver is to  be blamed for having plunged  the municipality into heavy debt  by extravagant expenditures;  but it must also bebornein mind  nr  CLUB OFFER  "%  We have pleasure in announcing that we have made arrangements with two of the leading weekly'publications  so that our subscribers may have the best of reading at  substantially reduced rates.

The Courier is far removed in  distance from the places in question, yet when provincial aid is  involved to relieve the situation  it may not be entirely'6ut of  place for us to voice an opinion  in dealing with the problem.  # ;  While we do not for a moment  believe that the province shall  take of the people's money and  help out in the way of business  misgoverned municipalities, corporations and extravagant indi-  viduMs^-yet in this^ case where  the late government was to some  extent the cause of the trouble,  the present government may,  without establishing a precedent, give the municipality of  South Vancouver the benefit of  its knowledge of business and  some temporary assistance.

In view of the keen interest  being shown at the present time  throughout the Dominion in the  goat industry, and the increasing number of animals, especially of pure-breds being kept, the  time is considered ripe for the  formation of a Goat Breeders'  Association, by the B. C. Department of Agriculture.  Such an Association would have  for its objects the development  of the industry, and the popularising of great products; encouragement in breeding for the improvement of stock, in order to  secure increased production of  milk from milk goats and of  mohair from the Angoras; assist-  VANCOUVER LAND DISTRICT  UMJways  Pleases "  HARRY HANSON ^Kft*1*  of Prlnco Rupert  inventor of the Harry Hanson  Special Water Heater  (Patented In Canada)  will make a trip to Bella Coola  to introduce his patented rapid  heating water coil, also to do  whatever plumbing or water pipe  work there may be a cull for.

CZD  THE 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.
