Pack-  -$of "the. abovenamed association,  ' ^andthe Executive of the Eraser  Vaileyr'Fishermen's Association  in Vancouver recently, emphatically declared that his sympathies  were1 with the white fishermen  ���������at all times. He went North he  said every ye'ar where they had  three or four canneries where no  .Japs were employed. At Bella  Coola he declared they had a  splendid class of white fishermen." "I wish we had more of  'them.,'} .Continuing, Mr. Barker  said "There is no white man who  is a :decent one,  turned away  : from 16\ir places.    It is a cold  ' >iooded^ proposition    with   us,  ������   however,   as   our   business   is  'simply "to pack fish, when it is  profitable.  Killed Right Whale  :   Masset, July 9.���������The whaler  White, Captain J. Christian, of  *   they'd "IST. P. whaling fleet, made  a lucky and unusual haul to the  Naden harbor station last week,  landing a right whale, a species  now very rare, especially in these  waters.    This particular speci-  *;." men is valued at about $20,000.  vV,   The right whale is particular-  ^'ly valuable for his  whalebone.  ' It yields many tons of it and the  quality    is    particularly   good.  This������is   the   first   right   whale  caught in these waters in several  years??-  m  A Friendly Porcupine  Prince Rupert, July 9.���������A porcupine wandered into a Fulton  street residence the other evening, walked.upstairs and finally  climbed to the top of a partition  in a suite of rooms. It appeared  ^guraeasby the principle of getting  as'high as it could in this world.  TKe^-resident of the house, a  colored man, thought it wise to  get a gun, for he is not familiar  with the shy and succulent porcupine. More moderate counsel  prevailed, and the little stranger  was finally captured and is now  living in a kennel.  ��������� "Ah will keep him for the  fair," remarked the captor.  To Speak Across Atlantic  London, July 9. ���������"Mr. Marconi contemplates being able to  t e 1 ep'h one from Carnarvon,  Wales, to New York, before the  end of this year," was the statement made by the manager of  the company in testifying before  the Dominions' Royal Commission on Imperial communication.  It was added that Mr. Marconi  also anticipated increasing the  speed of the wireless telegraph  to 300 words a minute.  General Election  Said to Be Likely  In Coming Autumn  Ottawa, July 9.���������The Evening  Free Press says: "A general  election is likely to be held in  the autumn.  "It is understood that the Dominion government urged the  Ontario administration to bring  on the recent election for the  purpose of testing and confirming the sentiment in Ontario.  They are well satisfied with the  result, and feel that they can  make an appeal to the Ontario  electors successfully in a federal  contest.  "It is known that Sir Robert  Borden has been urged by financial interests to bring on the  Dominion contest as soon as possible, because they fear that  continued hard times may make  it exceedingly difficult for the  government to come back should  they go to the country after their  full term.  "It is understood here that Sir  James Whitney is likely to enter  the Dominion senate shortly, and  that Sir Adam Beck will take the  Ontario premiership.  "Hon. W. J. Hanna is to enter  the Dominion government, taking the place of Hon. T. Crothers,  who will take a judgeship. Mr.  Crothers is anxious to leave politics because his health has not  been so good, and because he has  found the administration of the  labor portfolio exceedingly distasteful."  Prince to Sail in October  London, July 9.���������Prince Alexander of Teck will leave for  Canada early in October and will  probably pass the retiring governor in the St. Lawrence.  Oil Specimens From  Graham Island  Prince Rupert, July 9.-���������A Sib-  bald, who has interested himself  extensively in Queen Charlotte  Islands, has brought over some  specimens from the oil fields on  the west side of Graham Island.  He shows some of the tar found  in the creeks and the oils and  stones. He is endeavoring to  interest local parties in the field,  having great faith in its possibilities. There are two companies now sending drilling outfits in and by fall Mr. Sibbald  predicts they will be showing real  oil flows.  Mr. Martin Coming Soon  Vancouver, July 9.-���������Word has  been received from Hon. Joseph  Martin that he will arrive in  Vancouver to take up permanent  residence on 25th inst. He has  declined another nomination for  the British House of Commons.  Great Floating Dock  Near Ready  Prince Rupert, July 9.���������It is  expected that the Grand Trunk  Pacific authorities will have the  big drydock at Prince Rupert in  operation before the end of the  present year. The completion  of this great work will mean  much to northern British Columbia and especially to Prince Rupert. This rapidly growing city  will have a new industry this  coming winter. Many of the big  coast steamers that have hitherto been compelled to make their  headquarters elsewhere will be  overhauled in its harbor. It will  be able to boast of the largest  floating drydock on the Pacific,  with an' equipment including  every up-to-date device for  handling ships up to 20,000 tons.  For a city that dates back only  to 1906, when the Grand Trunk  Pacific's staff of engineers made  a landing and clearing for the  location of their camp preparatory to making the preliminary  survey, this is a record of progress that it would be hard to  rival.  Henri Bourassi  on Home Rule  Says Mass of Canadian People Are in  Favor of It  Silver Pick Mine Bonded  Skeena Crossing, July 9.���������W.  F. Brewer of Hazelton, has taken  a bond on the Silver Pick mine,  a promising galena property on  Nine-mile mountain. The claim,  which is located a mile and a  half from the Silver Cup, is to  be developed this season. The  owners are Ben Peterson and  Sperry Cline. The price has not  been made public.  London, July 9.���������Mr. Henri  Bourassa has a lengthy letter in  the Times concerning the recent  cable from the Times' Toronto  correspondent, which said, "The  mass of active and aggressive  Imperialists in Canada sympathize with Ulster. It is they  who have kept the flag flying in  North America."  Mr. Bourassa expresses the  opinion that, excluding on the  one hand the Orangemen and the  "group of financiers who waged  with flag in hand so successfully  against reciprocity," and on the  other the Irish Catholic element,  the mass of Canadian people can  be fairly divided in proportion,  two in favor of Home Rule  against one opposed to it.  Last Spike August 15  Prince Rupert, July 9.���������Mr.  Collingwood Schreiber states  that the driving of the last spike  on the Grand Trunk Pacific is to  take place on August 15th, when  either the Duke of Connaught  or Sir Robert Borden will officiate.  $2500 For Fair Building  at Prince Rupert  load of supplies for his camp,  only to get orders to quit work  at once, after he had spent some  $1,500. Foreman Hoage and  Graham can each hold out for a  few days longer, when road work  for the season 1914 will be at an  end.  ('Out of the appropriation of  $14,000 voted for roads and  trails there has been spent not  more than $5,500. What about  the remainder? It is the same  old story of a big appropriation  not spent.  Mr. Martin Christensen, the  well known general merchant of  Hagensborg, who visited town  during the week, reports that  there has been no perceptible  decrease in trade at that place.  The local farmers are busily engaged in harvesting their hay.  The recent showery weather is  causing some anxiety but has  occasioned no loss so far.  Prince Rupert, July 9. ��������� A  grant of $2500 toward the construction of the Prince Rupert  agricultural hall will be made by  the provincial government, Mr.  Wm. Manson, M. P. P., having  received a letter to this effect.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  S.S. Camosun arrived in port  early Sunday morning with the  usual consignment of miscellaneous freight for the cannery  and local stores.  Among the passengers for this  place were Mrs. Robt. Holt and  two children. Mrs. Holt, who  resides in Alberta, is visiting  her mother, Mrs. J. Nygaard.  The outgoing passengers included R. A. Teebay, Frank  Robinson and Frank Burroughs  who were bound for Safety Cove.  Calvert Island, where they will  be employed for the next five or  six weeks on government work.  Mr. C. S. Brown, late teacher  in charge of the Mackenzie  School, has accepted the offer of  a more remunerative position at  the high school, Vernon, B. C,  and expects to leave here in the  course of two or three weeks.  While we shall be extremely  sorry to lose Mr. Brown from  our midst, we congratulate him  on his new appointment.  Reports from the local cannery  state that the run of sockeye  salmon during the week has been  most satisfactory, heavy catches  being the rule rather than the  exception. This year's pack to  date exceeds that of any former  year and there is every indication  of a very successful season.  As regards Kimsquit, no information has come to hand as to  how the two canneries operating  at that place are succeeding.  It is with some surprise that  the people of the valley find that  road work, which was expected  to last for some months yet, is  closing down.  Foreman Draney has closed  down and will only resume, after  haying, to spend some $350.  Foreman Svisdahl at Hagensborg  had little more than got nicely  started when he found his share  of the appropriation, about $800,  gone and had to close down.  Foreman Johnson, in charge of  the work in the Upper Valley,  came to town on Monday for a  The Columbia Herald of Houl-  ton, Oregon, publishes a clipping  from the Courier in regard to an  excellent sample of meadow  grass from Mr. Gyllenspitz's  ranch. After making mention  of the extraordinary growth and  the date the grass was cut, the  Columbia Herald asks the question of its readers���������Can Oregon  beat it?       In some  matters Bella Coola  may be somewhat slow to move  with the times, but this certainly  cannot be said in regard to the  musical education of our youths.  It is not so long ago  that the  proud possessor of the only piano  in the valley was the envy of his  neighbors.    Now, however, that  the settlers have been  able to  establish comfortable homes and  live in moderately luxurious circumstances,   the   old-fashioned  organ is rapidly giving place to  pianos   of   the   most   approved  makes.    For some time past the  importation of pianos has been  steady, as many as four arriving  by one steamer.     Mrs.   D.   C.  Balfour, an accomplished pianist,  visits the town every week-end.  imparting instruction to quite a  large number of pupils.  Hard times have not seriously  affected Bella Coola and at the  conclusion of what is hoped will  be a successful fishing season  another period of piano purchas-  can be looked for.  With hard times in the cities  it would seem a good opportunity  for some live firm of piano dealers to look well into the business  prospects of such places as this.  Mr. D. H. Hoage of the Crossing, also came to town on Wednesday for a load of supplies for  the road camp in that neighborhood.           Lloyd Robinson, J. Chadwell  and Chas. Taylor pulled out for  the Upper Country on Monday.  They intend to do some prospecting and will probably make  through to the Cariboo country.  The departure of Mr. Taylor  leaves the town without a barber.  There will probably be a big demand for safety-razors for a  while.  A party consisting of Messrs.  C. D. and F. M. White, P. Hanson and H. Gustavson, of Houl-  ton, Oregon, Julius Olson of Portland, Oregon, and Jes. Hendricks  who is well known locally, left  town early Wednesday morning  for Skowquiltz River, a tributary  of Dean Channel, where the  Hendrick Bros, and other local  prospectors have some very  promising placer-gold claims.  Several of these gentlemen  visited'the claims last year, but  were debarred from making anything like a thorough investigation of the ground owing to the  lack of facilities and difficulty in  getting in supplies.  Mr. Olson, who has had vast  experience in placer mining,  hopes to be able to prove the  ground this summer, and is confident that if warrantable  sufficient capital to operate the  claims will be quickly forthcoming. Considerable excitement is evinced locally in regard  to these gold prospects and Mr.  Olson's report will be anxiously  awaited. '    Mr. Frank Ratcliff of Atnarko,  paid a brief visit to town on  Wednesday last in connection  with some legal business.  Mr. Ratcliff reports that his  brother Walter and a small gang  are at present employed on the  construction of a small bridge  on the trail close to Atnarko.  W.  Robinson   and   T.

SATURDAY, JULY 11, 1914.  Mr. Bowser Comes to Judge  Oar Worthiness.  Attorney-General Bowser and  Hon. W. R. Ross, minister of  lands, have started out on a tour  of Northern and Central B. C.  The purpose of this tour, according to the Coservative press,  is to enable Mr. Bowser "to get  fully into touch with Northern  affairs and conditions, to- meet  the people and find out personally the worthiness of the various  demands made by the.Northern  districts on the government."  So Mr. Bowser is to be the  judge as to the worthiness or un  much money the government.  will have to spend to save themselves from utter defeat. The  people Mr. Bowser will meet to  seek his information, will be his  political agents and machine  bosses in the different parts of  the several constituencies. The  men who have the distribution  of local patronage. These are  the people that Mr. Bowser will  undoubtedly consult. It is so  much safer than meeting the  common people.  How disheartening it will be  for Mr. Bowser, should his minions give him a full and true account of the situation "particularly in the North."  The only disturbing feature  about this, tour of the North by  Mr. Bowser is, that he will probably come to the conclusion that  the government should, hang on  to. office until the full term has  expired, as he cannot help but  see for himself that his government can never hope to regain  the confidence of the electorate.  United States to come through  with the money for the protec-  of their creditors. When the  people had recovered from their  amazement they would undoubtedly have pronounced him crazy.  Echo Answers Why.  It appears   that   owing to a  hitch in the agreement between  the Canadian Northern promoters, and the Ottawa government  in regard to the conditions on  which the securities guaranteed  by the government are to be disposed of, Sir William Mackenzie  is raising money in New York to  I tide over the situation until such  time, as the difficulty is adjusted.  Sir William can  be safely depended upon to hand the obligation over to the public to whom  it belongs as soon as an agreement is reached.    The thought  naturally arises, if he is able to  raise money in New York for interim  purposes on his own security, why did not the government  insist on   him   doing   it  before, when contractors, equipment supply firms and hosts of  other creditors   were   pressing  for settlement?  when as a matter of fact, unless  the fishermen happened to be  British born, they were denied  the right to'fish until they had  paid for their presumption in  coming to Canada by living on!  their savings plus pure air and  mountain scenery for three years.  Under such absurd regulations  it is little wonder that our fisheries were; being controlled  by  Japs.  Should this report prove to be  true, there is no reason why,  with encouragement from the  provincial government, there  should not spring up thriving  settlements of fisher-folk on this  coast, which would mean the  absolute elimination of the Jap.  >>  Pledges His Personal Fortune  John Claflin, head of the great  dry-goods firm which passed into  the hands of a receiver a couple  of weeks ago, has pledged his  own personal fortune of ten mil-  I lion dollars for the protection of  uim������*ui -������   h.s creditors>    This action on his  worthiness of any request from .partwU1 probably tide the,affairs  over and will prevent serious loss  the North on the government.  At the same time it is admitted  that he is completely out of touch  with conditions in this part of  the province.     For  instance,  fancy Mr. Bowser coming to Bella Coola (of course he will not)  and after spending at the most  one day in our valley, condemning one of our most needed requirements as an unworthy demand on the government    He is  going to meet the people and  find out personally.  We would like to know what  our affairs have to do, with Mr.  Bowser personally?   We have a  local representative whose duty  it is to ; meet the people, study  their requirements, and to make  their needs known to the government.     Are we to understand  that Mr. Bowser has  no confidence in our local representative?  It certainly appears that way to  us.   It was generally understood  that the visit of Mr. Griffith,  deputy minister of public works,  to various parts of the country  was for-expressly the same purpose.   ;it": would appear that he  ' did not stand very high in the  ���������estimation of Mr. Bowser either.  Again we read that Mr. Bowser  will  inspect the   Grand   Trunk  Pacific.      The   thought comes,  what will he do if he finds it does  not suit him?    Will  he have it  fixed or build another road alongside?  That the ministers have a purpose for making this tour there  can be no possible doubt. Nor  can there be any doubt as to  . what their.purpose is.  , The fact is that Messrs. Bowser and Ross are making this  personal inspection of the field  to find out for themselves what  the   conditions   are,   and   what  and perhaps ruin to many.  How different with Sir William  Mackenzie and Sir Donald Mann.  When their enterprise, the C.  N. R., was practically insolvent,  did they pledge any part of their  personal fortunes, which greatly  exceed those of Claflin, to protect  their creditors ? Well, no, not  exactly. They merely demanded  that the-people do the pledging,  and the people through the government elected by them did so.  ��������� Imagine John Claflin, with ten  million dollars salted down, re  Good News���������If True.  The report that the Dominion  Fisheries Department   has   revised the regulations to permit  of the issuance of gill net licenses  to bona-fide settlers on the land  whether they be British subjects  or not, will be welcomed by many  settlers   in   this   neighborhood,  who, desirous of following their  natural vocation, were prohibited  from so doing until they had become qualified for naturalization  by a three years residence in the  Dominion.  There have been numerous  cases of this kind in Bella Coola.  Men have taken up land in the  valley, many of them expert  fishermen from Norway, only to  find that they were prohibited  from fishing for three years.  Conservative politicians have  boasted loud and continually of  ���������" The Old Countryman.  The first issue of "The Old  Countryman," a weekly paper  published in Vancouver, came to  hand last week.

We wonder of the thousands  who are attending mass meetings and   shouting  themselves  hoarse about the   exclusion of  Asiatics,   how   many  would be  prepared to make a solemn vow  and declaration   never   to   buy  even a few vegetables from one  of these gentry.    It strikes us  that the question of whether the  Jap, Chinaman or Hindoo should  or should not be admitted to our  shores would soon solve itself,  if, deprived of non-oriental patronage, Mr. Oriental was made  dependent entirely on his fellow  countrymen for his livlihood.  One  moment we wax wildly  enthusiastic in regard to exclu-j  sion of Asiatics.    Nothing but a  white Canada  will   satisfy us.

It has been laid down by the  civil tribune of the Seine that the  air belongs to the landowner as  far as the tops of trees and buildings;   This is in opposition  to  the English legal theory, which  gives the landowner rights over  the air above .his ground to an  indefinite height. But the French  decision is clearly grounded on  common sense, and it is almost  inconceivable that now that aeronautics has become a practical  science the English theory can  be long maintained.    In the case  in   point  the   landowner  sued  three airmen for disturbing his  game, destroying his fruit trees  and generally being a nuisance  to him.   He has won his point,  and damages  presumably adequate���������they amount in all to ������100  ���������have been   awarded  to him.  In England at present a landowner, could apply for an injunction to prevent airmen trespassing on his air at all: and as the  law stands it could not be refused.  But it is one of   those rights  which would  inevitably be destroyed if any general attempt  were made to stand upon them.  The Market At Our Doors.  Despite Tariff Barriers Canada's Exports  to United States Increased Last  Year by $33,348,991.  Government   trade   statistics  for the past fiscal year are decidedly embarrassing to Conservative arguments in regard to  the ' 'No-truck-or-trade-with-the  Yankees" propaganda.    During  the  fiscal  year, exports to the  United States totalled $200,459,-  373, a gain of no less than $33,-  348,991, as compared  with the  preceding twelve months.    Despite the refusal of the Conservatives to take advantage of the  American efforts to let down the  tariff barriers and give the Cana~  dian farmer freer access to the  marketof 90,000,000 people, trade  has continued to steadily increase  even in a year of comparative depression.    Even with the tariff  barriers still up against Canadian  wheat and oats and fish, Canada  sent last year to the United States  wheat to the value of $6,891,624,  oats to the value of $6,802,403  and fish to the value of $6,644,-  365.    Canada sent animals to the  amount of $8,518,012 across the  line during the last fiscal year.  The  Canadian farmer and the  Canadian fisherman may realize  from figures like these what he  lost when the reciprocity agreement was turned down.

The first year's operations under the   government's boasted  reciprocal trade agreement with  the West Indies did not justify  the boasting which was done in  the government press when the  agreement first went through.  The returns of the Department  of Trade and Commerce for the  fiscal year which ended March  last, show that Canadian trade  with the 'West Indies amounted  to $4,354,849, a decrease of $1,-  662,281 as compared with preceding twelve months.    Exports  totalled $4,770,2000, an increase  of only $41,998; With the reciprocal agreement in force, there has  been ah actual decrease in trade  of over $1,600,000.
