It is rather hard to account for  this ice, as during all the,-time  Bella Coola has been settled no  ice of any consequence has ever  formed on the inlet, not'even  when the temperature has'been  nearly forty degrees lower than  that of 20 above zero prevailing  for a short time during last week.  Some loggers on the way to  Bella Coola had a hard, time to  get through, but they finally succeeded after battling with the  ice for several days.

Another young man'although  not of Bella Coola, but almost  equally well known to the people  of the valley as one of their own  who has given up his position to  fight for his country is Capt.  Parks, late commander of the  S. S. Venture.  Percy Gadsden has started  logging operations for the Johnson mill. If the present mild  weather continues we expect the  whistle of the mill and the buzzing of the saws will soon disturb  the calm serenity of our surroundings.  That the new management of  the local Farmers' Institute is  alive to the important position it  holds may be inferred from the  fact that the secretary is looking  about for a competent person to  act as agent for the sale of the  produce of the valley.  This is as it should be; even  though it is a long time until  next harvest and before there  will be produce of any consequence to-dispose of, yet it be-  NOTICE.

It is really inconceivable how  aChristian nation as Germany is  supposed to be can hold it to be  according to the precepts of her  avowed Master to widen her domains and increase Jier power al  the expense of her weaker neighbors.  Such conceptions of Christianity will not be tolerated in this  enlightened age and the justice  which is engrained in the fabric  of the world will at length make  itself felt and the disobedient  factions which cry Lord, Lord,  while they in their actions deny  Him will be crushed.  We have great faith in our  numerical strength and the im-  m'ensity of our resources, but  the element which gives the  greater strength, and which wc  possess, must not be overlooked,  namely, the justice of our cause.  When all is said and done this  will give us the victory.  And to conclude peace not in  harmony with that justice would  be treason to that higher law.  o    ,o     o   ro     o  That Russia's claim on Constantinople is not mentioned,  does not mean that she will give  up her demand for access through  the Dardanelles to ice free  waters.

The main point of interest in  the news of last week is the reply of the Entente Allies to President Wilson's request for terms  on which peace might be secured.  President Wilson's request was  made to all the warring nations';  but the Entente Allies were the  only ones to comply.   The Central Powers are unwilling to offer  any terms.   They point with arrogant pride to the territory they  have invaded and strongly hint  that they must be allowed to  make terms befitting the victor.  The Entente Allies on the other  hand are determined that Prussian   militarism,   the   standing  menace to the peace of Europe  and the freedom of the world, be  crushed now and forever, and as  Lloyd   George   expresses  their  sentiments: ''War is'preferable  to Prussian domination of Europe."  There'is no faltering in the  attitude of the Allies. Their firm  belief in final victory for their  cause is evidenced by the terms  they offer as necessary to bring  about a stop to hostilities.  The terms include the restoration of Belgium, of Serbia and of  Montenegro, and of complete reparation for the damage they  have sustained; the evacuation  of the invaded territories of  France, Russia and Roumania,  with such reparation as is considered just.  These terms aim at restoring  as far as it is now possible the  conditions existing before Germany broke the peace of the  world;' but the demands of the  Allies go .considerably' beyond  this and require the liberation of  Italians, Slavs and Roumanians  from foreign domination; the retirement of the Turkish empire  from Europe, guarantees of a  stable regime founded upon the  respective nationalities and full  liberty and security of all nations  both great arid small. These latter demands mean that the Entente Allies will not sheathe  their swords until the liberty of  the world is obtained and secured.  Its reception in Germany, however, is of a different nature entirely. The German people see  in it the proof of their contention  that it is the aim of their enemies  to crush Germany as a nation,  and the immediate effect of the  reply is to unite the German  people in a firm resolve to fight  it out to the bitter end.  wsxmmm  ki view of the persistent rumors in pro-German quarters  that several of the members of  nations comprising the Entente  Alliance are growing restive and  are willing, to conclude, peace  with Germany upon her own  terms, which may .be-more or  less liberal as the exigencies require, it is significant to note  that'all nations of the Entente  joined in one note of statement  of terms in their reply to President Wilson. There is perfect  unanimity among them on that  point that an honorable peace is  impossible at  this   time.     The  newspapers in the, lands of the  Allies are .t unit in upholding  and approving the requirements  for peace as stated in the reply.  And even the journals of neutrals such as Spain and Switzerland commend its tone.'  o      o    c     o     o  Developing Oar Province.  Premier Brewster on his recent trip to Ottawa to attend the  conference of the Dominion gov-  ernmentand provincial premiers,  took occasion to also look after  the special interests of the province. '      ''  It is a Tact which probably escaped us during the period of inflated prosperity, when-., everybody tried to get rich by exchanging real estate, that very  little was being done to encour-  age manufacture and to develop  the resoui ces of the province.'  That the chief administrators  of our province at that time were  men who had no experience as  business men. but whose chief  hold upon the people were a  smooth tongue and winning manners, will probably account for  the fact that our province in  spite of its magnificent resources  The matters which required  immediate attention, he said,  were the establishment of a steel  plant which, with the vast  amount of ore available, could be  kept in operation for an indefinite time, and the operation of a  smelting plant would greatly reduce the quantity of copper now  going to the United States.  "Our big work," he said,'"will  be in bi-inging about, in all lines,  greater production. The province of British Columbia is  deeply in debt. We have to face  that fact to begin with. It is a  province of immense natural resources, and the only solution of  our problem is in development  all along the line of that latent  wealth.  "We have known bodies of ore  which will support a steel plant  foran indefinite numbcrof years.  A smelter for the refining of coper which is being enlarged and  re-opencd at Ladysmith, on Vancouver Island, will do much toward reducing the great volume  of copper ore now exported to  the United States for treatment."  is sadly behind in making use of  them.  It will be for the new government, which to a-great extent is  composed of business men,of the  highest standing, to devise plans  by which tliis state of, affairs  may be remedied^as soon as possible. -  Mr. Brewster and his colleagues are fully alive to the situation and comprehensive plans  are being evolved looking to the  manufacture of our raw material  in the province. While at Ottawa the premier in an interview  stated that he had been successful in securing financial assist-  ance-towards the development of  the immense mineral resources  of his "province.  Canada's Boys^ Want Smokes!  Leader of the Opposition.  With the opening of the first  legislature of the new government at Victoria, it is natural  that the question be asked "Who  will be the leader of the Opposition?" In the other Canadian  provinces the leader of the opposition receives no salary as  such, but in British .Columbia  this o.ffice is now a paid one'and  the leader becomes, therefore,  a provincial official and draws a  salary of fifteen hundred dollars  from the public treasury.  Richard McBride when called  upon to form a government in  1903, choose to call it Conservative, as' previous to that there  was no party government in this  province. It followed then that  the opposition adopted the name  Liberals }n order to be in line  with the two great parties in the  Dominion. Duringthe last election the people put an end to this  regime and now a Liberal administration'is installed and the'opposition will consequently be  Conservative.   ���������  Under conditions now found  Mr. W.

IJ    u I   I I J I  _  1 1 I  head of the members elected.  His appointment to that office  should'be,altogether out of the  question.   In a letter to the Hon.  M. A. Macdonald, attorney:gen-  eral, in respect to legislation of  the past session, Mr. Bowser said  "I notice that you refer to me as  leader of the opposition, I beg to  state that no one'has been elected to that position yet.'"   If the  leader is to be chosen from the  members elected it is not likely  that any of the new members  would   accept   his   leadership.  There is a public claim on this  appointment;  'the' taxpayers  money is used as an extra compensation   for  his services  as  leader over and above the $1600  he receives as a member, and it  therefore behoves the Conservative party to,elect their'best  man as leader.  The leader holds a very important position in1 shaping and  criticizing legislation, as he .in  this way aids the government in  bringing about better legislation.  Therefore,-let the Conservatives  now be imbued with the idea of  putting the interests of the province before party. Let them  elect an upright, clean leader, a  person whose word can be relied  on by every citizen, be he Liberal or Conservative. We need  the best men from either party.  We have paid and are now paying dearly for pastcsrrors.   Dis  honesty and trickery in our'pub-  lic affairs must be banished from  this province forever.

A great deal of well deserved  credit has been accorded the  people of the United States for  the noble response they. have  made to the appeal for relief, to  the impoverished Belgians.  While this fact, however, is  universally known and praised,  very little is being said about the  unostentatious and by far greater relief rendered by two of the  belligerent nations, Britain and  France. While themselves strain-  i ���������  ing their resources to the utmost I  to conquer, their' mighty foe they .-  have fed starving Belgium at a  cost to them of $120,000,000 or |  ten times the amount the United  States has expended for the same  purpose. Britain and, Prance  have lent ships to Belgium to  enable her to bringin relief supplies. Britain and France have  refrained from blockading Belgium in the same way as they  have blockaded the Central Powers. In strict international law  Britain and France were not  bound to aid the Belgians in such  ways. Germany was both,legally and morally responsible for  the population she reduced to  starvation. ..Yet all that Germany did was to steal the relief  supplies whenever she could,  torpedo the relief ships, deport  the Belgians into slavery and use  them to augment her own failing  man-power.  price always.    >  We hold sales monthly, but will advance 75 per cent, of value on receipt,  sending balance immediately after sale.

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 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 Garden Magazine of Vancouver, in its January issue eon-  Lair.s an article'on "What could  I do on ton acres."  As ten acres is about the size  of the average farm around here  it may interest our readers to  learn what may be the best way  of managing it:  A ten-acre holding should have  G to 7 acres for hay"and pasture,  and about three acres under the  plow. This would vary somewhat in different localities. A  couple of cows should be kept,  and,if the milk cannot be sold  the cream- can be turned' into  butter, which would not bring' in  much more than half the mojiey  the milk would. On the other  hand one- would have separated  [milk for rearing calves and for  I pigs.   It should pay to rear good  j i  i heifer calves.  A young breeding sow might  be a part of the live stock, and  also a couple of pigs to fatten.  A few hens might be kept, say  about 15 to the acre. They would  get most of their own living and  greatly improve the grass, and  bring in a steady little income  from the start.  One acre of the arable land  should be planted with fruit.  Strawberries, gooseberries and  currants, and a few apples would  be the right kinds, the two first  named to have most of the space.  On the remaining two acres  for the lira I year, grow potatoes,  mangolds, peas, corn and cabbage. These arc clean crops' and  get the ground into good condition, besides being good feeding  material for the slock.

She arrived on her first trip Friday last week at two o'clock in  the afternoon, and had the extraordinary experience coming  up the last few miles of the inlet  in that she had to break ice  about three inches thick.  It is rather hard to account for  this ice, as during all the time  Bella Coola has been settled no  ice of any consequence has ever  formed on the inlet, not even  when the temperature has'been  nearly forty degrees lower than  that of 20 above zero prevailing  for a short time during last week.  Some loggers on the way to  Bella Coola had a hard, time to  get through, but they finally succeeded after battling with the  ice for several-days.

Joshua Moody, one of the most  prominent of the'Indians of out  midst, met with a serious accident last Saturday night. In  climbing up a ladder to the sec  ond story of his house he fell  several feet to the floor below,  sustaininga fracture of the knee.  Previous to this accident he-  has bee'n an invalid for many  years resulting from the breaking of the same leg.  The attention of our' young  men eligible for service at the-  front is called to the fact that  they will not meet any insurmountable difficulties in their  endeavor to enlist. B. F.

We call our readers attention  to the advertisement in this issue  of Harry Hanson, the plumber  of Prince Rupert.

The, Allies* Reply to Wilson.  The main point of interest in  the news of last week is the reply of the Entente Allies to President Wilson's request for terms  on which peace might be .secured.  President Wilson's request was  made toali the, warring nations;  but the Entente Allies were the  only ones to comply-   The Cen-  tralPowers are unwilling to offer  any terms.   They point with arrogant pride to the territory they  have invaded and strongly hint  that they must be allowed -to  make terms befitting; the victor.  The Entente Allieson the other  hand aire determined that Prussian   militarism"/ th.e . standing  menace, to the peace of Europe  and tBe:freedom ofM&e'world;. be  crushettTiowand forever, and as  Lloyd   George   expresses  their  sentiments: "War is preferable  to Prussian domination of Europe."  There'is no faltering in the  attitude of the Allies. Their firm  belief in final victory for their  cause is evidenced by the terms  they offer as necessary to bring  about a "stop to hostilities.  The terms include the restoration of Belgium, of Serbia and of  Montenegro, and of complete reparation for the damage they  have sustained; the evacuation  of the invaded territories of  France, Russia and Roumania,  with such reparation as is considered just  These terms aim at restoring i  as far as it is now possible the  conditions existing before Germany broke the peace of  the  world;'l>at the demands of the  Allie3 go .considerably  beyond  this and require the liberation of  Italians, Slavs and Roumanians  from foreign domination; the retirement of t'.e Turkish empire  from Europe,   guarantees of a  stable regime founded upon the  respective nationalities and full  liberty and security of all nations  both great and small.   These latter demands mean that the Entente  Allies   will   not  sheathe  their swords until the liberty of]  the world is obtained  and  secured.  Its reception in Germany, however, is of a different nature entirely. The German people see  in it the proof of their contention  that it is the aim of their enemies  to crush Germany as a nation,  and the immediate effect of the  reply is to unite the German  people in a firm resolve to fight  it out to the bitter end.  greater strength, and which we  possess, must not be overlooked  '���������>  eminent and provincial premiers,  took occasion to also look after  the special interests of the province.

With the opening of the first  legislature of' the new government at Victoria, it is natural  that the question be asked ''Who  will be the leader of tire Opposition?" In the other Canadian  provinces the leader of the opposition receives no salary as  such, but in British .Columbia  this office is,now a paid one"and  the leader becomes, therefore,  a provincial official and draws a  salary of fifteen hundred dollars  from the public treasury.

It followed then that  the opposition adopted the name  Liberals in order to be in line  with the twot great parties in the  Dominion.

The leader holds a very important position in shaping and  criticizing legislation, as he .jn  this way aids the government in  bringing about better legislation.  Therefore, let the Conservatives  now be imbued with the idea of  putting the interests of the province before party.

Let Proper Credit be Given.  A great deal of well deserved  credit has   been   accorded  the  people of the United States tor  the noble  response   they  have,  made to the appeal for relief to.'  the impoverished Belgians. j  While this fact,   however, is  universally known and praised,  very little is being said about the  unostentatious and by far greater relief rendered by two of the  belligerent nations, Britain and  France. While themselves straining their resources to the'.utmost  to conquer their'mighty foe they  have fed starving Belgium at a|  cost to them of $120,000,000 or  ten times the amount the United.  States has expended for the same  purpose.     Britain   and   France  have lent ships to  Belgium to  enable her to bringin relief supplies.    Britain and France have  refrained from blockading Belgium in the same way as they  have blockaded the Central Powers.    In strict international law  Britain   and   France  were   not  bound to aid the Belgians in such  ways.    Germany was both legally and morally responsible for  the population  she  reduced to  starvation.    Yet all that Germany did was to steal the relief  supplies   whenever   she   could,  torpedo the relief ships, deport  the Belgians into slavery and use  them to augment her own failing  man-power.

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.
