Many new orchards have been laid out and  planted and under the instruction  of Mr. W. H. Tomlinson, assistant horticulturist, the farmers  have been enabled to exercise  greater care, and to adopt better  methods which cannot help but  bring about excellent results.  The experimental farm, under  the able management of Mr. S.  Le   C.   Grant,   proved of  great  benefit and evidenced the highly  productive quality of  the  local  soil.

Exactly what transpired  has not yet come to light, but,  whatever the cause, it is generally acknowledged that some  very stormy passages were experienced. The election of officers for the coming year resulted  in some important changes, the  chief of which was the election  of Mr. T. P. Saugstad as secretary in place of Mr. A. Gothard.  In Mr. Saugstad the club has an  able man who can be depended  upon to act fairly and honorably,  and if ever the time comes that  pressure is brought to bear on  him from any self interested  clique it will be found that he is  not for sale. That is our opinion  of Mr. Saugstad. We cannot,  however, help expressing our  regret that Mr. Gothard was not  re-elected as we know that he  had grasped the situation  thoroughly and had a clear understanding of several matters  which had been brought to his  notice by local Liberals. It. is  gratifying to know that Mr.  Grant was re-elected to the presidency. With this gentleman a������  the head those who are not pre-  , pared to associate themselves  I with the party in power are  ; assured of a certain measure of  fair dealing.  A move to demand the scalp of  any man in the government employ who might, by any stretch  of imagination, be deemed to  entertain ideas favorable to the  Liberal party, met with a warm  reception. Mr. T. P. Saugstad  spoke strongly^against any such  course, even threatening to sever  his connection with the party  should anything of the sort be  attempted. Other changes in  the exective committee were  made, also in the road foremen  for the coming season, but in  this regard very little information has as yet leaked out. We  wish to explain that the reason  why we can only offer a vague  report of the proceedings is that  no one but fully qualified members of the association are allowed access to local Conservative meetings, not even the press.  Many of our readers will be  interested to learn that Mr. A.  Crichton, late of this place, has  volunteered for active service  and is at present in training in  Ireland with the Royal Irish  Fusiliers.  <r������"> <i������r><"z������r><T������">^rsa  (Clmrrh Nnttn>  10:45 a. m.  7:30 p. m.

' 'It seems to me to be a grave  state of affairs.    Here is a case  where an officer charged with  the administration of justice  is taking proceedings to have  * convictions made by his own  officers- set aside. The attorney-general has an interest in  this firm. The whole thing to  my mind is tainted. IT IS  TAINTED' AT  THE  FOUN-  'TAIN HEAD.    I never saw a  clearer case of where interests  conflicts with duty."  He should  not be allowed to act in criminal convictions."  So spoke Chief Justice Hunter,  and we have need to be thankful  for such men, who are not afraid  '   to speak boldly when they'see a  man in a responsible position of  public   trust  stooping   to   such  contemptible practices.  ��������� Mr. Bowser has, i or the past  : number of years, been using his  official position merely as a tout  to direct the legal business of  individuals, firms, and corporations having business with the  provincial   government   to   the  law office, of Bowser, Reid and  Wallbridge.     His responsibility  for the loss to the depositors in  the    defunct   Dominion   Trust  Company is still   fresh  in   the  minds of the public.    As long  ago as 1907 the charge of mixing  up his private practice with his  duties as attorney-general  was  brought against Mr. Bowser. At  that time he was the legal adviser of a clever Japanese, Gotoh,  O"��������� -i ���������wi mi n��������������� *"*  I should like to say a word in  favor of the British recruits.  Having in view all the anathemas which have been hurled at  the heads of the single young  men of the United Kingdom regarding their obvious duty, it is  remarkable what a number of  irresponsible, unauthoritative  statements 'have been made.  The fault is thatthe young man's  interest has not been attracted,  his patriotism and latent fighting  qualities���������blunted doubtless by  football and such like���������have not  been properly appealed to, the  core of his nature not touched.  The press, whatever may be said  of the bureaucratic fiends,^ has  not had a square deal; the journalists and special correspondents have had no scope���������however brilliant,, their time has  been wasted. In fine, the censor  is a dark curtain hung between  details of the- truth and the  nation. The romance of war is  therefore lost.  As for the recruit, Kitchener's  man,,his response is a noble one.  I'have previously mentioned the  transformation of the "knut".  The "knut" is not a waster, .not  necessarily, in local parlance, a  "gadabout"; not worthless, but  a respectable young, fellow, A  mechanic perhaps, or a clerk  whose only weakness is to*ap-  pear "wounderful in the eyes of  women."- To this end he wore  the bluest of blue socks, the most  striking of suits, the brightest  ���������(OxaMBMJ-OSMM)  of bright ties. And some ill-  advised newspapers have created  an odious comparison with him  and the New Zealander, the  Australian and the stalwart Canadian; fine, clean-limbed men,  sons of the open spaces, and  reared on God's fresh air, who  come with a light heart and. a  cheery smile to fight for the  ���������Motherland. This is a potent  thing, it is a tribute to the greatness of Greater Britain. Nevertheless there is a strong word to  be' said for the city man, the  street-bred citizen who exchanges his job for the hardships and  paltry pay of active service.  Whatintenseand vitalpatriotism  does this imply? Immediately  he becomes a soldier, his privileges practically speaking���������outside that fine one in a different  sense of being a British soldier-  are gone.- In the garrison towns  and .training centres he endures  in silence the insolence of storekeepers and insipid, milk and  water civilians behind the counter of the "dry canteen" who  look upon this 19^.5'class of Atkins as a being to be preyed upon and despised. He must salute  young- lads of nineteen and  twenty years holding a subalterns commission who are, perhaps only his equal in intelligence; he must be respectful and  obedient' where corporals , and  sergeants are concerned.

(Continued from preceding page.)  have  me   appointed   a   deputy  game warden.   What I answered  did not seem to please him,  1  was   insulted. -..    My   prospects  were jeopardized and I wanted  no trifling.     I never found out  when or where the next meeting  of that association'was held.  Sure enough   an   election   was  sprung and   the   Conservatives  were elected almost to a man.  Then came the 1913 game act,,  curtailing the liberty of the farmer on his own land and protecting numerous animals which are  known  to  destroy crops.     One  man was fined for killing a cougar  which   was   destroying   his  calves,  simply  because he had  not a. gun  license.    He .should  have   driven   into   town > for a  license and left the cougar with  the rest of the calves.    Does the  government think that by legislating for the idle sportsman and  against the farmer they are doing  well by the province?   The absolute indifference to the needs of  the bona fide settler has brought  on a condition of near starvation  in the cities. Meanwhile Sir Richard looks on with 'calm dignity.'  He must have a heart like the  Kaiser.    I want to farm.    I have  land close to Hazelton without a  trail to it.    In 1913 I attempted  to clear the land and put some  stock on it.    But the bear commenced to kill my stock.    I applied for a permit to kill the bear  but was refused, and told that if  I waited 'till after August 31 I  could get a license  to trap for  $10.    I was closely watched by  certain  parties.     They  would  watch a farmer and let the bank  be robbed in broad daylight. So  much for the act of 1913.  The 1914 Act is still woi-se as  it protects more destructive animals and birds.  The government has systematically persecuted the person desirous of engaging in agriculture  and a terrible condition exists in  our cities in consequence. The  city people should seek to assist  the farmers and they will not go  hungry. The Conservative steam  roller must be smashed, it has  ruined the agricultural industry  and is driving the city people to  beggar^;-'; ;  B. D. TANTON.

Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  THE REASONS  for this  enviable  condi-  1  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.  ID  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.

Ol   '' ""��������������� jl   fo  THE   BRITISH   RECRUIT���������(continued  from page two.)  a soldier. Though his kind forced  the passage of the Aisne and the  Marne, have smashed the Kaiser's picked divisions, and are  holding the lines at Ypres, he is  only a common soldier, or, what  is one degree worse, a miserable  "rookie."  I have been compelled to correct some people who have spoken  of his   having   a   picnic.     The  "picnic"   comprises   seven   or  eight hours of drill every day,  field training wherein he learns  the business of "mutual support"  and attack,  lying prone at the  firing position in the cold  and  wet fields, dashing at race-track  speed���������with .rifle at the trail���������  towards the point of objective,  only to fall into the cover of a  waterlogged  ditch at a whistle  or signal of command.   And this  war game is" played carrying an  equipment 'of over forty pounds  in addition to rifle and sidearms!  He is called out at night for route  marches, his evenings are often  stolen by lectures "on musketry  and kindred subjects.    He is not  over-fed,-nor over-paid���������he gets  seven .shillings a week and the  German press call him a "mercenary"!  Yet they are making a live  wire of this "1915 Atkins," a  man "full of energy and'fire with  the soldierly .spirit ingrained in  his system. There-are a million  such; not a horde, but a trained  juggernaut of steel soon ripe for  the German sacrifice! So there  is a new name for-the "knut",  he has become a nail, as all enduring and as tough. And he  wants to go to the front, to fight  in the'trenches, and to roar and  to kill like some wild beast of  Valhalla. And even with his  small experience he has no fool  notion of modern warfare: still,  he wants to go,*to see the thing  through. His life is offered to  the ' Motherland, his days and  moments for the period of the  war .are at her service. More-  over, he will not shrink if perchance the Angel proffers him  the "darker draught," or if, by  the fortune of war he is maimed  for life.  Yes, these home-bred English  and Scotch will fight side by side  with us Canadians and men from  the Antipodes and South Africa  with equal zest and fire; as much  and as fine a body of warriors  as their sires of Waterloo and  nkerman. And they will get  what? A medal perhaps as av  souvenir, and which a million  will wear, made from the*metal  of a German gun: a pound or so  as service gratuity; their jobs  back again, perhaps? A hundred  and sixty acres ? No! There  wilL.be a common honor of having served in the Great War, of  having fought for principle and  right. Still, men fought for  principle and right in the Crimea,  and mained old. veterans died  starving in workhouses or lived  to sell matches in the streets.  Yet the "knut" (or "nail" as I  like to call him) offers his life  and services knowing these  things, knowing well it is not a  joyous venture with the lure of  gold, but���������"Simple service, freely given to his own kind in their  common need."
