Enemy's bombardment diminished today, two  new attacks were immediately arrested by our artillery. There  was an artillery duel in the region of Bois D'Aiily and Lepetre  forest in the Vosges, after bombardment of Langenfeldsko and  Elgin the first two attacks were delivered against us by the  enemy, but were completely repulsed.

As long as the war  lasts and the need continues,  special and constant efforts will  be made to gather funds for the  one great object before us.  Nothing else should sidetrack  attention at this time. "This  one thing we have to do, and  with all our might."  The Board of Directors of the  hospital gave an entertainment  Thursday afternoon at the hospital to the members of the Lysdal  Sewing Society. This entertainment was given in recognition of  ings for the money received, and  when they had been satisfied on  these points coffee and cakes of  many varieties were served.  A modern water system with  baths, toilets, etc., has been installed this spring at a cost of  nearly $900. It is nearly all paid  for, a debt of about $80 remaining and it is understood the ladies  will see to it that this will be  cancelled in the near future.  And now the hospital stands  complete in every detail. Necessary repairs will be all that is  required for a long time.  The closing exercises of the  Mackenzie school took place at  the schoolhouse last week on  Thursday afternoon. At two o'clock the children and a fan-  sized assemblage of interested  people gathered to attend the  exercises. Time and space forbids going into detail; but it is  the unanimous verdict of those  who witnessed the program that  nearly all the children exhibited  remarkable proficiency in all  branches and especially in recitation, geography'and calisthenics.  At the close Mrs. E. Clayton  delivered the Rolls of Honor as  follows: To Janet Gibson for proficiency, to Louis Evilsisor for  regularity and to Arthur Thompson fordeportment.

If such a system can  be carried on in the United States  in times of peace, it seems it  could also be carried on here,  especially in times of war.  The Courier has, in a series of  articles, tried to explain how  such a system works in the  Uhited States with the hope that  our calling attention to it would  lead to the adoption of similar  measure here.

The great war has brought  about conditions of such a nature  that every individual is affected  to a greater or less extent. It  is admitted that the country  is undergoing a great ordeal and  that there is an element of danger  in it.' We talk a great deal' about  patriotism and that we all stand  by our country and are willing  to do what we can. But as yet  it has not occurred to us what  we each and all of us can do in  order that.we may assume our  "share of the task. We cannot  all go to the war, and even if we  could there if work at home that  <  ���������' cannot be neglected but must be  done if the war shall be carried  oh ,to a successful issue.   Neither  can we all who remain at home  make munitions of war, though  ^greatis the number required for  that purpose.    It is  not within  the power of any one to assign  to each his duty, but we know  what the^ farmers ought to do.  They must with greater* energy  and better system than hitherto  produce food and to some extent  raw material for clothes in greater quantities than before.  ' While there is no question but  what the farmer will be duly rewarded for his efforts, yet that  must not in these days be the  primary object.   No one, a patriot, has the right, to seek opportunities to enrich himself from his  country's distress.     This   is   a  time for the need of universal'  sacrifice.   Let us all rise equal  to it!  Remember what Belgium sacrificed, that freedom should not  be snatched from the people of  western Europe.    Imagine what  indemnity Germany will compel  us to pay in wealth and labor if  she is successful.    Therefore all  the domestic forces at the disposal of our provincial government should  be organized and  marshalled for the purpose of increasing the products of the land,  as well as those of the mountain  and the sea.  Sir Richard will do more good  in directing the efforts of the  government at home towards  ends such as this than by observing the trend of affairs from an  office abroad.  In order that this organization  can be effected in a practical  manner  the   government must  The Prospects for. Trade.  While the Panama Canal was  under construction, the,idea was  prevalent that when this short  cut between the Pacific and Atlantic was opened, the western  coast of America would see a  great revival in business. The  The canal has now been opened  about one year, and it is safe to  say, without fear of contradiction, that the prediction has not  become -true. The unexpected  world-war has paralyzed the ordinary pursuits of manufacture  and commerce to such an extent  that the looked for boom in business could not possibly materialize. "  There are signs visible, however, of readjustments and openings'of new channels.of trade.  The'C. P. R.  will inaugurate a  regular service between Vancouver  and   Vladivostok,   Siberia.  This is news of considerable importance as Russia and Siberia,  the great countries   reached  through this trans-pacific port,  are in a state of great development.    Their considerable trade  with Germany is cut off by the  war and will remain so, long after peace has been restored, and  the increased needs of these vast  areas will to a great extent be  supplied from this continent; and  then surely British Columbia will  get her share of the business.  That there will be openings for  business through the Panama  Canal which British Columbia  can. benefit by is indicated by a  circular just received from the  -Forest Branch of the Department of Lands, Victoria.    The  circular states that there are op-  portunities. for the sale of Douglas Fir to the West Indies. We  quote the circular in full:  . The Canadian Consular Agent  at Port of Spain, British West  Indies' is of the opinion that the  opening of the Panama Canal  affords opportunities for trade  with Western Canada which are  not being overlooked by merchants. He'states that if Douglas  Fir has the qualities which will  enable it to replace Pitch Pine,  now secured from the United  States, there will be an excellent  market for it in the British West  Indies. Tho first large cargo of  British Westlndian sugar isabout  to be dispatched by. the new  route to British Columbia, and  lumbermen .-will recognize the  importance of the new conditions as affecting return cargoes  of lumber.  The superiority of Douglas Fir  is being brought to the attention  of the Consular Agent in order  that he may distribute information concerning it to local buyers.  Jn connection with "the -foregoing, an article on the West Indian  lumber.trade in the June  number of the Canada Lumberman quotes an American business  man, located at Kingston, Jamaica, who says:    "A great deal of  the pitch pine imported here from  the Southern States you would  not use it in Canada. : It is used  in Jamaica because there is nothing to compete with it."   I would  like to see your British Columbia  Douglas Fir coming in here."  1 th^ government's-zeal togetaft-  1 er the poor men who may do little  'or no damage Jto the public domain by shady dealing while it  gives the speculator a ' 'chance",  contrary to the spirit of the Land  Act, to hold the choicest of the  agricultural Crown lands-of the  province.

The government by.;alio wingthe-.'speculator to acquire  these large tracts/has relegated  the pre-emptor to the foothills,  the gullies and the headwaters  of streams in  order to obtain  such land as -'the.' speculator did  not want. . The pre-emptor who,  to make a home, is forced to live  in out-of-the-way arid' almost inaccessible places must be watched.   High salaried and otherwise  expensive officials must tour the  country to see that the wily pre-  emptor lives up to the law, while  at the same time the government  winks at the shortcomings of the  speculator who in  a greater  measure is' violating the  Land  Act than it would be possible for  any pre-emptor to do.  The government would have  been in better business if it had  inspected the speculators and  the large codrporations which in  the last few years have so successfully fleeced the British investors and made British Columbia a byeword in financial circles.

Draney, manager  of Kimsquit Cannery, we publish  the following letter received by  him from Mr. D. E. Campbell  who has been serving with the  forces at the front in France.  He was for two years book-keeper at the Kimsquit Cannery. Mr.  Draney informs us that Mr.  Campbell has, since writing this  letter, been seriously wounded.  "I received your letter and to  say that it was interesting would  be an extremely feeble way of  putting it. I could almost see  the green islands of the Pacific,  the big mountains, the flash of  the water. Could almost hear  the rattle of the machinery and  the cans running through. 1  could almost hear the voices of  the old boys and girls, and all  alive. Alive, notdead! Itcame  like a breath of Heaven in this  God forgotten land.  "Death is my playmate now!  To all of us dead men are mere  lumps of clay. We have seen  our comi-ades shot down in heaps.  We know death in its most awful  forms and death quick and painless. Why any of us are here  and not in those silent piles in  the valley of death' north of  Ypres, we don't know. Still, we  are here and alive.and actually  enjoying life; that's the strange  part of war, the ease and rapidity with which one becomes accustomed to its horrors.  "It would require a whole book  to detail even the experiences  since April 22. That you may  know was the date of now famous  charge of the Canadian Scottish  and the 10th battalion of the  Canadians. This is how it came  about: The Canadian Division  held a line of trenches north of  Ypres; on our left were the  French. On the afternoon of  the 22nd the Germans launched  a terrific attack against the  French lines, using their new  poisonous gas. The French broke  and retired, leaving the Canadian  flank exposed. The Germans  poured through the gap. The  Canadian flank swung round to  protect their rear but there was  a hole still to be filled or the  Germans would march straight  through Ypres and three British  divisions (90,000 men) would  either be captured or cut up; and  the battle of Ypres would have  (Continued on last page.)

"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.  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.

The only troops available  to stop the' gap and hold back  the Germans until our reinforcements came up were the reserve  battalions   of   the,   Canadians,  these men had the day  before  been  relieved   from  their  four  days in the trenches.    The Germans broke about five o'clock in  the   afternoon,   they   advanced  about two miles and then, meeting' such determined opposition  from the Canadians on their left,  chey halted and entrenched themselves in front of a small wood  to wait for morning.    This force  of 7000 strong must be driven  back,   and   against   them   were  thrown the  10th  Battalion and  the Canadian Scottish', less than  2000 of us.    I was in Vpres that  afternoon  when   the  bombardment commenced.    We thought  iittle of it as the Germans had  promised us an interesting time  that day.    When we got back to  our billets on the banks of the  Vser canal we found the battalion had fallen  in-and  lined the  banks of the canal. ' About eight  o'clock word came to march off;  we advanced through  the  outskirts of Ypres along the Ypres  road, through the village of St.  Jean, turning off over the fields  before we came  to St. Julien.  Most of this distance was at the  double,  and it was more than  three miles with shells bursting  in every direction in the fields.  We found the 10th Battalion lined  up for the attack; we followed  suit immediately, in their rear,  in four long lines one behind the  other: about five hundred vards  away was a wood';  the enemy  was there and we were to turn  them out.  .The order was given  and received in the most matter  of fact way; suddenly the order  came to advance, we all would  run forward about one hundred  yards and lay down,  presently  again advance.    The long line  moved forward through the darkness quietly, calmly.    One lively  little gun somewhere in our rear  was    throwing    an    occasional  shrapnel shell into the wood, now  and then a German starlight rose,  throwing our men into faint relief.    In about an hour, halting  and advancing, our front linear-  rived to within possibly eighty  yards of the enemy; there was a  momentary hush;   then   with  a  roar  like an  avalanche in  the  mountains of British Columbia,  the storm of German fire broke  over us.   The idea of our advancing further against that seemingly   solid   wall   of, rifle   and  machine gun bullets seemed like  some grim  joke;   orders there  were none, one could not hear  even the voice of the man next  you, yet advance we did somehow, up and a few yards onward  did we see although there had  been 7000 of it hem, and barely  1000 of us reached their line, the  moment they caught the gtaam  of our bayonets they fled;  the  few  who remained   were soon  bayonetted or captured.     And  that was our big fight; we had  checked the German   advance.  We held the trenches all night  and all next day and the next  night.   The e!nemy brought up  their reserves' and all day they  poured in their fire from trenches  oh our left; ahd their big guns  got the rangeiof us and all day  long they raked our line, shrapnel and big shells burst around  and about us..   Fifty men 'were  killed around me, some almost  within arm's'reach.    How I es-  caped is still; a marvel  to me.  The second morning we were relieved and fancied that our job  'was done and we were due for a  rest; we soon found our mistake.  For four days and   nights we  marched, dug trenches, and endured some of the most awful  shell fire of the war.    During  the whole time, almost five days  from first to last, we did not have  one hour's sleep.

C.  then down, again up and on andjlieve it possible foremen to endure  down again; no one ever dreamed  of turning back, I don't believe  the thought entered one man's  head.    Suddenly their fire slackened slightly, and looking up I  could see our front line rushing  forward; could faintly hear their  wild cheering;  could see them  falling here, there, everywhere,  but. the rest never pausing. Then  it was up and at them for us too.  With fixed bayonets and yelling  like mad we swept forward, line  after line, till suddenly the German fire ceased and an instant  later the parapets of their trenches loomed up and the line was  ours.    Into the trench and beyond; into the wood and through  it we went, but hardly a German  so much.   We were in the battle  twelve days in  all  and  finally  were relieved; then we made a  night march of twenty miles to.  our billets," where we put in the  first three days sleeping most of  the time.c    During   the.  battle  there were dozens of interesting  incidents'and someday when we  foregather on the verandah at  Kimsquit I'll tell you all about  them.
