As the time is fast approaching when the women shall also  share the responsibility with the  men of dealing intelligently with  theafFairs of government, it is  to be hoped they will be as keenly interested as the men in the  issues of the day. The meeting  was well attended and was called  to order by Mr. B. Brynildsen,  president of the local Liberal  Association. In a few remarks  he introduced the speaker of the  evening Mr. T. D. Pattullo of  Prince Rupert, the Liberal candidate of this district for the  provincial legislature.  Mr. Pattullo is no strangei  here, having held meetings in  the valley about a yeai- ago. His  speaking is in the conversational  style and is smooth, calm and  even. Without resorting to any  rhetorical means he held the attention of the audience from  start to finish for about one hour  in a speech that bore evidence:  of his sincerity and earnestness.  In opening, Mr. Pattullo referred to the desirability of the  representative of the district  representing all the people of the  district irrespective of what their  politics may be. That government by road bosses and cliques  must cease and government and  administration must be conducted in the interests of the people  as a whole.  Referring to the plugging in  Vancouver, Mr. Pattullo said that  the situation revealed was nauseating in the extreme and that  the general conclusion arrived  at was that a determined effort  had been made to bring discredit  not only upon Mr. Macdonald but  upon the whole Liberal party and  to this end a Liberal organizer  had been bought over by the government forces. If Mr. Bowser  was anxious to have the whole  matter cleaned up he should  grant immunity to this organizer  who is now a refugee in the United States to return to Canada  and give evidence as to just who  the men were at the bottom of  the trouble. Bowser refuses to  do  this   and   contents   himself  | disgusted   every   clean   minded  ! person.     Mr. Macdonald  was a  dor Gerard.

Referring to the criticism of  Mr. Brewster indulged in by the  government supporters with regard to the issue of the writ by  that gentleman, Mr. Pattullo was  in- thorough accord with Mr.  Brewster and said that if the  Election Act had not been amended at the last session of the  legislature Mr. Brewster would  not have applied for the writ because even if all that was done  during the past session were illegal the next legislature could  make valid anything  that had  been done illegally; but in view  of the fact that the Electiom  Act was changed it simply mean.1  that if the last legislature sat  illegally the new legislature,  which will be elected under the  amended elections act, will necessarily sit illegally and therefore  could not possibly validate anything that had been done. It was  therefore extremely desirable  that the question shculd be settled at once otherwise there  would be confusion worse confounded. Mr. Bowser of course  was trying to make political  capital out of the situation b>  stating throughout the country  that Brewster was holding the  business of the country back, but  as a matter of fact Brewster had  suggested several ways to Bowser to bring on an immediate  hearing of the case, but Bowset  preferred to continue .the" course  of misrepresentation in order to,  if possible, gain some political  advantage. Mr. Brewster had  more than made good at the last  session of the legislature and  was constantly increasing his  prestige.  Mr. Pattullo pointed out how  Bowser had sat tight until after  the Vancouver election when he  completely lost his head and was  ready to promise anything ana  everything  in  order  to  secure  popular favor.    To this end he  started to steal the Liberal platform.    Unfortunately in his attempt to adopt the Liberal platform he had only further exemplified the incapacity which had  marked the government administration   for   the   past   thirteen  years, and many of the measures  now proposed by the government  would only lead to further disaster as proposed to be carried  out by the Bowser administration.    As a matter of fact the  Bowser administration could not  possibly remedy the present situation evenlf it wanted to, foi  the reason  that it was circumscribed by interests which would  not let it move a hand.    If Bowser was returned   to  power In-  would  double cross   the   people  just as  he  double crossed  the  liquor interests, just as he double  crossed McBride and just as he  will double cross anybody whenever it is in his power to do so  to further his own interests.  Mr. Pattullo's arraignment  was chiefly founded upon Bowser's own appraisal of his government. He showed how Mr.  Bowser had admitted the charges  made by theopposition, but tried  to brazen the situation through.  The speaker also took occasion  to point out the constructive  policy of the Liberal party and  referring to the immediate problems of the valley he thoroughly  sympathized   with    the   people  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  S.

The catch during  the week was light although as  good as might be reasonably expected. The heavy rains may  have been a contributory cause.  T. D. Pattullo on his way home In renewing his subscription  from a business trip to Califor- to the Courier Mr. Ephraim Sev-  nia called. j erinson (late of Bella Coola) says  | the Courier is a welcome visitor  I and of much interest to him.  Miss Marjorie Clayton returned  from a fewa weeks visit with  friends in Victoria.  Hans Helgeson after staying  at the hotel for a few weeks left  on Monday for Hagensborg to  enjoy life on a farm. He will  during.his stay stop at Mrs.  Nordschow's home.  T. McCrae, timber inspector,  paid us a flying visit in the beginning of the week on his  monthly tour of inspection.  We noticed there wei e a number of loggers on the street during his stay. They availed themselves- of the opportunity to be  licensed and located for logging.

In every other  province throughout this large  Dominion one will find prosperity  on every hand, but it is the lot  of British Columbia, with all her  natural resources, to find ihe  people reduced almost to poverty.  Continuing, Mr. Pattullo said  that things were so bad now in  general that the people of British  Columbia had to stop. The borrowing of millions of dollars  every year and handing it out to  grafters in handsome commissions had to stop.  Mr. H. Helgeson, a former  member of the legislature, spoke  for some time and show.ed instance after instance wheie the  taxpayers money has been wasted  for the exclusive benefit of the  government's hangers-on.  Miss Hallowes advised those  present to see that the referendum of woman's suffrage was  adopted. Many of the provinces  now had given women a chance  to vote and in doing so there  would certainly be less chance  for men to be elected to parliament who are not of the right  kind as was now so often the  case.  M. B. Christenson said that  house cleaning was a necessity  ces.    We are glad to state that from time t0 time and  th^t jg  what  the  taxpayers of British  Columbia have to do now.  After a few remarks by the  chairman the meeting ^closed by  singing the national anthem.. *  he intends to come back in the  latter part of August and we  hope then to have a gathering  where everybody can meet him  and be benefited by his deductions.           We would strongly advise our  readers to read the fine article  entitled: "Get together," from  the pen of A. R. Neale in this  issue.

At the last session of the legislature the Bowser government,  in order to gain favor with the  soldier vote/amended the Elec-  ��������� tions Act so as to provide for the  soldiers at the front voting at  coming elections;  We believe that it is perfectly  right that every soldier in British  Columbia should have a vote no  matter in what .part of the province he maybe stationed, but  it may well- be asked how can a  soldier who left here eighteen  months ago and who has been in  Europe or possibly Asia for the  great part of the time since, be  in a position (to judge of "the  many/measures   and   questions  that have arisen since he left?  No other province has adopted  such a course.    It is of course  absurd and is only another illus-  tration of the many cheap attempts of the Bowser administration to secure the favor of the  electorate.-  Is it not time that we had an  administration that will give us  clean and capable government  along common sense lines in order that all our people may be  happy and prosperous? Such  an administration would not require to resort to subterfuge and  finesse in order to gain popular  support.  true to his erratic mind or whatever the reason may be, he refuses to assist in  having this  momentous question settled speedily.  He prefers to travel around  the country telling the people of  the wickedness and perverseness  of Mr. Brewster; how he by this  action is tying up the business  of the province to its incalculable injury.  Mr. Bowser, true to his nature  and his low "estimate of the intelligence of the people, believes  that he will be abJe to deceive  them as to the true, state of the  question at issue.  We boldly make the statement  and know that in due-time it  shall be generally admitted: that  Mr. Brewster by his appeal has  done the right thing, at the right  time; and that it is Mr. Bowser  who, in'his refusal to allow the  courts to render a speedy decision, is tying up the business  of the province. *  '  'GILLETTS  GLEANS^DISINFECTS }  Bowser is the head.  Mr. Brewster asks the court  to decide whether Mr. Bowser  has exceeded his authority in the  payment of the whole of this  money.  Tying Up the Business of the  Province.  A good motto for every person,  every organization, every government to follow is: "Be sure  you are right, then go ahead."  In a.great many minds of our  m:>3fc exparienced and intelligent  men of affairs there exists grave  doubts whether the latter part  of the late session of the provincial  legislature   was   valid  or not.   The time for which it  was elected expired March 14,  and the legislature by an act extended its own life until June 1.  These men who entertain such  doubts believe it is for the interests of the province to have the  , question of the session's legality  settled forever and beyond any  doubts, and  in  order to attain  this   desirable   and   obviously  necessary   end   Mr.   Brewster,  the Liberal leader, has appealed  to the courts for a decision.  If our premier was equally desirous of establishing firmly the  acts passed by the late session,  he would be glad to join the Liberal leader in  this  effort,  but]  Mr. Bowser's Illegal Act.  Possibly it may not be generally known that-irrespective of  the question of ,the validity oi  the acts passed by the late'ses-  sion, there is another branch in  the action brought*, by Mr. Brews-'  ter which possibly has something  to do with Mr. Bowser's reluctance to have the courts render  an early decision.   Mr. Bowser  has acted  as  a  trustee in the  paying out of the funds obtained  by the sale of the P. G. E. railroad  bonds guaranteed   by the  province."    These'" funds should  be paid out to the company in  proportion to the mileage completed, and so as to cover the  entire length of the road.  Instead of complying with law  in this respect he has caused the  funds held by him to be paid out  as fast as the rapacious railroad  promoters demanded it, with the  result that he has paid them more  money than has been expended  on the road, and needless to say  the road is far from being completed.    The railroad promoters  (or   wreckers   is   probably the  better word) are  now howling  for more money and Mr. Bowser,  isusing the credit of the province to raise another six million  dollars to pay out to these gentlemen, who by the way are clients  of the law firm'of which Mr.  Nova Scotia Stays Liberal.  The elections in Nova Scotia  on June 20 was a sweeping victory for the Liberal party and  the Murray government. The  Liberal party has been in power  for thirty-three years and Hon.  Geo. H. Murray has been the  premier of- the. province since  1896.      ���������  It is a triumph for.the Murray  government, but it also reflects  .credit on the Liberal party in  that it has been able to retain  the confidence of the voters and  even attain" a greater majority  than ever after such along term.  It may well be inferred from this  fact that it has not..become corrupt through  a   long -reign  of  power,' which so generally proves  to be the.case and especially so,  as exemplified, in this-province  at the present'd'ay.  Although Nova Scotia is a province with considerably less resources than our province and  for that reason should be considered poorer and consequently  have a lower, credit.- Yet a short  time ago,- when jt had occasion  to borrow some money.its bonds  were sold at more than their face  value.  a result to. act together for the  common good. Too long the  spirit of aloofness, the spirit of  competition, the spirit of getting  ahead of the other fellow, and  the offspring of these sinister  spirits���������the spirit of uncharit-  ableness���������have been ruling.  - The importance of the spirit  of harmony which the "getting  together" will promote was emphasized nineteen hundred years  ago when the apostle admonished: "Let brotherly love continue."  On this spirit is founded true  progress, and therefore if we  desire to advance on the best  lines towards national greatness  in its true sense we must cultivate the spirit of harmony.  If we.differ on   any points,  f  which we are sure to do, let us  come-together and discuss them;  by learning the-reasons for the  differing in the views of others  we ourselves obtain a wider  vision and will be able to see the  grounds'taken by our opponents  in a friendlier spirit.  If there are any common needs  to relieve or common objects to  attain, let us come together and  discuss them and try to meet the  different views in the right spirit  and hammer them into one common plan.

Ultimately these turbulent  times will bring home to the  people many lessens which have  had small consideration in the  piping times of peace and prosperity. And-it is to be hoped  that the people will show its  teachableness by applying such  lessonsjn practice,      7  One of these lessons is called  to'our attention by Mr. Neale's  article in this issue on the necessity of "getting together,'Up  meet and confer together, arid as  The Unrest in Germany.  As a fact that in many instances the wish is the father to the  thought, and as we all are eagerly looking' for   signs  that our  strong enemy is  weakening, it  has  been  natural  to treat the  stories of shortage of  food in  Germany  and the riots on ac-  countof it with more or less incredulity.    But of late  these  stories have come from so many  points and  been   so   numerous  that they ;must  be. credited as  being according to facts.    Last  year the crops of Germany, with  the exception of potatoes, were  not up to the average, and as a  result in spite of strict government control it has been found  impossible, to so distribute the  food- that. wide-spread distress  could be avoided.    When; we consider this ever-present heed and  the oppression of mind caused by  the great loss of lives, the increasing numbers of the severely  maimed for jife of those "near  and dear to a sorely tried-people,,  it is not to be wondered at'that  riots-break out at frequent intervals. .>  . Up till this time it has been  possible for the authorities to  keep the people   in  the  belief,  that this war was forcuj upen  them, by their jealous neighbor?,  and the German people noted for  their love of country have bun  willing to make any sacrifices in  the defense of their "vateiland."

It is said in a long German article regarding the central disposition of food that the  butchers are unable  to supply  more than one-third the normal  quota and that Germany in the  very near future must feed her  people on vegetables.    Even if  it is possible to train the population to a vegetable diet, this cannot be done unless there is plenty  of bread, butter and eggs, turnips, beans and such other vegetables,   but none of  these, not  even  potatoes,   can  be had  in  the quantities the people require  them.     Especially there  seems  to  be  a lack  of  bread, beans,  peas, butter, eggs, rice, oats and  all   the   nourishing   vegetarian  foods.    As a matter of fact there  is greater lack of these than of  .neat.  "According to an article in the  Berlin Boursen Courier, a large  number of housewives in cities  ;annot get sufficient food for  their families and consequently  central kitchens are the last report. It is obvious that such a  state of affairs cannot go on year  after year. It is in "this condition that we have the nearest  reason for the reckless offensive  at Verdun and the vain attempt  of an offensive at sea. It may  ieemoutof place to discuss these  things in a business paper, but  che subject is oneof the decisive  issues of the war, and all business speculation must adapt itself to the outcome of the war."

When one first makes a trip  through the Bella Coola Valley,  one cannot help being struck by  the great opportunities offered  by such an extensive and beautiful district.    I am sure it would  be hard to find a locality with a  greater combination of inducements for habitation.    Not only  is Bella Coola  a good farming  district, with good soil and good  climate, but it also has naturally  beautiful surroundings which to  all true lovers of nature should  go to make the farm a home and  not merely a place to grind out  a few dollars from the soil with  ::in infinite amount of labor.    In  my opinion, if a man follows at  occupation he should do it intelligently and with the idea of pleasure and interest rather than the  mere idea of  making a living,  ���������ind  the profit  derived will   be  considerably greater not only in  dollars but also in   better community spirit.  I have been asked time after-  time how are we to obtain a  market for our produce? Now  there is only one answer to this  question--"gettogether." Make  this your slogan, let each and  everyone give up the idea that  he is the only one who is making  a living off the land and start in  now to devote himself to increas-  Continued on page 4, column 2.  President Wilson Speaks:  It is from the valleys and the  hillsides that we draw the sources  >f life and prosperity, from the  farm, from the forest and the  mine.

Bella Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  THE REASONS  for this  enviable  condition 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 enjoy-'  able;   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 cat tied away  over twenty first prizes.  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=]  FSiiiiltt  Get "More Money" for your Foxes  Muskrat, White Weasel, Denver, Lynx, Wolves,  Marten and other Fur bearers collected in yonr section  SniP YOl.'H F17IJS DIHECT tn "SHUnEUT" Ihe largest  bouse in the World dealing exclusively in NORTH AMERICAN RAW FUhS  a reliable���������responsible���������safe Fur House with an unblemished reputation existing for "more than a third of a century." a lonK sue;  cessful record of sending Fur Shippers prompt.SATIS FACTORY  AND PROFITABLE returns.

Let him do this I say not  only for his own' good but also  for the good of the community,  so that in time the district may  become known for the quality as  well as the quantity of its produce.  AjricuRural organization' has  made great strides in Denmark  and  other   European   countries  and was brought about  by necessity.      The   farmers   were  brought to realize that they, had  to   get   down   to    businesslike  methods.     All   other  branches  of commerce have, of necessity,  become highly organized for the  purpose of getting goods on,the  market.    Where, there is a volume of production of high grade  articles a market is assured.   The  sameis true in agriculture.   Produce the quantity of a standard  | juality  and  you   will   have' no  crouble in getting your market,  ft is no use everybody pulling in  his own   direction.     There has  got to be a community spirit, a  determination   to   combine   together and work for the common  good.    After that spirit has been  fostered" success will follow.  ���������   The great heed of every market is ior quantity and quality,  especially quality.    It is no good  trying to get,rid of a large quantity  of low  grade goods.    The  only result is a bad name for the  producer and the good articles  will only obtain .the same price  as the inferior.  -Itwould be easy to cite a number of examples of how co-opera  tion has produced almost incred  ible results.    But just as one ex-  rV~nrr"T-iir  MrriT���������tin iim-firrt iirm  J^EAL ESTATE booms in the  cities have come and gone.

'Investors  should keep posted on developments by reading the "Courier."  rintiiij  ample of what is being done near  to home take the marvellous way  in   which the fruit industry of  the United States has been placed  in a position, by-careful organization, standardization and careful methods, where the growers  can send their produce to Canada  in spite of competition and other  obstacles.   Here is a case where  they did not wait for the market  to come to them; they "got together, " organized on a business  basis.and found the market.  People of Bella Coola yc'u have  a land of opportunity.    I would-  strongly urge you to realize the  possibilities ^of the district and  the  necessity  for co-operation.  Organize On  a  business  basis,  standardize the geeds that you  wish   ,to   sell,    study   farming  methods  with   the   idea of increased yields per acre and better-  quality of produce, improve your  herds  by selecting  high grade  animals; in fine, keep in mind  that the best should  be the aim  of everyone.    Do not.be content  with just anything aim at the  top, and you will find in timeand  not. very long either, that your  farms  will   become   more   like  home; that they will yield 50 per  cent. more, from the same acreage-than before, and more important than all you will have an  organization which will be able  to deal successfully with market  problems.  Therefore, I say co-operate for  the good of the country .which  affords you a home, for the good  of the community of which you  are members and for the good of  each individual in the community, and "soon you will find that  your farms will amply support  you and you will be able.to "enjoy  the benefits of  being at home  rather than having to depend on  sources   altogether   foreign   to  agriculture for a means of support.  I may say that anything I can  do towards furthering the interests of the farmers I will most  certainly dor but it must be understood that there is to be support from all sides. If people  are not able to come together  and work harmoniously towards  a given object, whichinthis case  lis the sale of produce, no one  man can do very much to assist  them.    In such a time as this,  when all over the world there is  a need for maximum production  make your work efficient, do not  waste materials by handling un  thrifty stock' and  increase the  value of your soil by more careful handling.    There is a Swiss  motto: ' 'To till the soil is to serve  one's country;" and at this time  it is more applicable than ever  to all those farmers who  have  the true interests of the country  at heart.    Every effort should  be used to increase production  away beyond,the usual rate.  ~^M'��������� m  ESTABLISHED AT BELLA COOLA JN ]8iJf)  Cut the {Clover Early.  It is the rule on many farms  to let the clover crop turn brown  before it is cut. This may add  a little to the, weight but it detracts from its feeding value.  Haymustsmell sweet and have  a good color in order to be rated  first-class. Over-ripe clover is  dusty, woody; and smells like tobacco. This may be pleasing to  the owner, but to-the cow's uneducated taste it is not. Properly cut clover will retain its gveen  color even after being thoroughly dried." A ton of green, sweet  smelling hay is worth two tons  of that which' is over-ripe.  ���������  Clover when allowed to turn  brown in the field gets brittle  and most of 'the blades powder  and are lost in the hauling. There  seems no good reason why farmers fail to transfer their clover  from the field to the hay mow in  a condition which will- be acceptable to the animals and profitable  to themselves.
