Mr. MacPherson informed  the Courier that so far this year  there has been no timber fires on  his" beat, which speaks well for  the work of this particular branch  of the provincial lands department.    '   0 Looking in the very pink of  health Dr. W. J.,Quinlan, postmaster at Ocean Falls, was a  caller here this week. The doctor informs us that things are  very lively in the paper town,  and the plant is turning out paper  to its fullest limit now. After  spending a day in town visiting  friends and old afcjiHntances the  postmaster returned home to attend to the many duties of his  office.   Fi. O. Doctor, representing  Ramsay Brothers, Ltd., biscuit  manufacturers of Vancouver,  spent a' few days in town -during  the week interviewing the merchants in the interest.of his firm.

Lunos has been reappointed fire warden for the Bella Coola  district, and is at present looking  over his beat in the upper part  of the valley^  -        ' ,  The strike of fishermen' at  Rivers Inlet had a good effect in  some- ways, aside from the finan-'  cial question. No fishing was  done for a week or so and it gave  the salmon a chance to gather  at the mouth of the; inlet in large  numbers. With fine' weather  from now on fishing there is expected to be fair.  At Kimsquit the run of sock-  eyes are improving thoi gh, as  yet, the Jishing now is done in  Dean Channel as 'far dt.wn as  Cousins Inlet.  At'Namu the catches are about  the, same as at this Lime last-  year. . *- -'  "  Bella Coola'is doing well. Catches during1 the week ha\e been  very satisfactory. The j sek cf  spring salmon is if ai ything  abovelastyear's, which was considered good.  Roumanians Getting Ready  Berne.-Berlin.- papers' say Bethmann Hollweg has re-  Emperor postponed his decision whether to accept the  resignation of the chancellor. Hollweg's resignation generally  bslieved resulted from intervention of crown prince. Official communication published yesterday says Emperor William expressed  opinion that the political and constitutional reforms demanded by  Reichstag are such that they cdtifce'rn not only himself but his successor, in as much as they would be permanent. For.this reason  emperor has summoned the crown prince to attend one or more  crown councils at which final decisions regarding extent which  crown and government will make concessions to Reichstag will  ba reached.   Emperor had long interview with chancellor.  Ottawa, July 12.���������Sentiment  for a union cabinet much stronger. Feeling throughout Ontario  and Western provinces said to be  unanimous for coalition. Union  government only, way to secure  stable administration. Vacancies  in Senate to be filied before vote  conscription is taken.    .;;  Washington, July 13���������Roumanian army, being reorganized,  will soon be able to participate  in general allied offensive.

Cheese  only> stock too low; Food���������'; controller :Hanna;'says consumption  of; wheat, beef and bacon in the  Dominion must be reduced at  legsfconls-third to meet needs of  al|ife&armies and people. Penalties are^provided for slackers,  be taken care of under military  service bill. Three first classes  may be called out together.  All the logging camps of the  Pacific Mills, Ltd., are now operating with nearly full crews,  and the logs are coming in at a  fair rate.    It is surmised that  when the other unit to the paper  mill is completed  it will take  something like a million feet of  logs a day to keep this enormous  plant going.    At this rate of  manufacture;   and   considering  that there will be a loss of time  in the logging.operation during  the winter months on account  of the weather conditions, the  company will have to cut a million and a quarter of logs a day  during the summer to insure the  running of the plant during the  whole year.  R. Spaulding,, Dominion government telegraph operator at  Kleena Kleen, arrived here during last week on his vacation.  It is five years since Mr. Spaulding first, entered the service in  that section of the country and  is now taking a well earned rest  before returning to his interior  post again.

It is a common everyday question about roadvvork ,and how  much money there'is available  for it. The question would have  been more readily answered if  the people had taken precaution  , some years ago to have opposed  the McBride government in the  fleecing of the province through  the Pacific Great Eastern Rail-  ft  way deal.  The parliamentary inquiry at  Victoria during the last session  demonstrated plain ly^that the  . whole deal from first to last be-  tween the McBride government  , and these millionaire railway  "builders was.to rob the public.  The Pacific-Great Eastern, Railway has again been unable to  meet its payments, the company  having defaulted on the fourth  payment of interest the amount  will now have to be put up by  the Provincial government. It  amounts to $423,000, which will  bring the total amount the company has been unable to pay to  $1,476,827. This is certainly a  nice sum that the taxpayers has  had to pay and if this money was  now in the treasury and to be  had for roadbuilding and other  development work in the province  things would look a little brighter than they are at present.   ,  o      O     0     o     o  Anglo-Saxon and Norseman.  How great a part Norway has  played as an ocean carrier in the  present war, and how ruthlessly  her ships have been sunk by German U-boats may be inferred  from the fact that in London  alone more than 400 Norwegian  sailors were recently assembled  from torpedoed merchantmen.  At the banquet held in their  honor, Commodore Halsey, for  the occasion   representing the  British  Admiralty,   delivered a  speech   in   which  he, amongst  other things,  said:    "We only  need to read history to see how  closely related are the Britons  and the Norsemen, and. we Britons are proud of this relationship.  I feel also sure that you Norsemen are proud of having the  same ancestry, as we.     From  whom has England her qualities  as a seafaring nation?   The answer is without doubt: From the  Norse ancestors, who from the:  9th to the 13th century ruled the!  seas.      These-people  founded j  colonies in the north of England,  in Scotland and in Ireland.   The  Orkneys, Shetland Islands, Hebrides and the Faroe Islands were  completely peopled by the Norsemen. The Isle of Man was Norse  for centuries, and Norse vikings  reigned as kings of Publin. I  believe that Norse sailors, under  the leadership of Leif Erickson,  were the first to cross the Atlantic and discover a new world.  From the great viking Rollo descends, the first of the'Norman  kings of England, William the  Conqueror.  "It is a source of pleasure to  us that a British princess, Queen  Maud, is wedded to the sailor  king of Norway.  "The men who, in early days,  brought Christianity to Norway  came from England and Ireland,  and from England has Norway  her parliamentary form of government and other systems and  impulses that have led to the  resurrection of Norway; and I  believe I am right in saying that  England was first to acknowledge  Norway a modern power. For  a thousand years and more have  friendly relations existed' between Great Britain and Norway  which 1 trust shall not be broken."  O     O'i-  o ."��������� o"'. o  -WHY ARE THEY SENT?  Lieut.-Col. A. L. Bonnycastle,  who has justreturned from England to Winnipeg after taking  the 200th Battalion overseas,  states there are 27,000 Canadian  soldiers waiting in England at  the present time to return to  Canada. The nfen have been dis-,  charged from service on account  of wounds,' physical unfitness,  age and other causes. , Only a  small percentage of this waiting  army are men coming home on  furlough. According to the Col.  every Atlantic liner is crowded,  making it difficult to bring the  men across with despatch. There  are colonels sufficient in number  in reserve camps to form a battalion. They are all drawing  pay and doing little service.  No officer over 35'years of age  is allowed to cross to France.  Few officers under that age go  over, as promotions are made  from men in the fighting ranks.  The latter statement of the  colonel is of interest/ it is only  right that the man who has endured the knocks should be promoted. If officers over 35 years  of age are not allowed to cross  to France, why send them over-  sea's at all?  Latest From Germany.  The latest from Germany .is to  the effect that the Huns are now  chewing on wood flour. The  flour is made from trees and is  being served out for human consumption, at first it was only intended for cattle.  The city council of Zittau is  urging the entire population to  go barefooted in order to harden  their feet and so preparefor the  ordeal of. winter, wheri-there  will be noshoes. We may suggest that the first one. to pull off  his boots should be the Kaiser  himself, thereby setting an ex-  -iz  ���������*<,  THE PROPHECY OF TENNYSON.

The/director-general of operations in the British war office,  Major-General F. B. Maurice,  made the remarkable statement  in a recent interview that the  British have not lost a single gun  on the west front since April,  1916. The general also referred  to the fact that to the outside  world it might appear that the  British were making slow progress in their attack on Lens,  and he explained the situation  thus: "Lens is an intricate mass  of mines and buildings which  render it a difficult business to  carry out a direct infantry attack. For this reason Field Mar-  shall Haig has been taking advantage of the British superiority in artillery to prepare theway  for the infantry. But we are  now beginning to make the town  an uncomfortable place for the  Germans, and I think we shall  have them out soon."  '       o     o      O     o     o  It is reported that the Kaiser  has invited neutral ambassadors  to meet in conference today in  Berlin. It is to be hoped that if  this conference is to be the means  of sending out German peace  proposals the Kaiser will notbe  allowed to suggest the preface:  It will be remembered that the  i i  last peace proposals by Germany  received scant consideration by  the Allies, chiefly on account of  the bombastic utterances of the  Kaiser. Here is one of,the Kaiser's proclamations to his army  and navy: "We have been victorious in all theatres of war, on  land and on sea. The greatest  battle was our victory at Skager-  rak (in which the German fleet  retired to its base arid left the  British in command of the sea).  The gallant deeds of our submarines have secured for my navy  glory and admiration for ever.-  God also in the future will be  with us."  The Kaiser could hardly .say  more if the Britfsh navy were at  the bottom of the sea.  o''   6-     om '-O. :-o  WEALTH OF THE CZAR.  A lot has been written about  the ex-Czarof Russia, even some  people seem to pity the poor  fellow, believing that he quit his  job as ruler quite a poor man,  besides giving up the glories of  being addng.

ENEMY'S POWER WASTING AWAY. -  The present reinforcements of  the German army, according to  a correspondent of Heuter's  Agency at the front, consist of  youths attaining militury age and  wounded from the hospitals. The  former class provide fifty thousand monthly and the latter fifty  thousand.  The Germans have already  called up part of the 1919 class,  while the 1920 class, who are  . youths of seventeen, have been  summoned .for medical examination. The 1917 class, which has  been fighting since the latter  part of 1916, form from twelve  to fifteen per cent of the infantry  units at the front.  The 1913 class, already strong:  ly represented at the front, forms  the majority of the reserve.. The  1919 class is being called up and  the enemy may send this class  into the field this year, and so  follow the undesirable course  adopted after the Somme battle.  The German casualty lists for  May show that 12 per cent belong  to the 1917 class, 2.4 per cent to  the 1918 class and. a few to the  class of 1919. ,     ,; .  s i  A French student estimates  that the enemy must replace losses at the rate of 300,000 a month,  but even putting the number  down at 200,000 the Kaiser can  not make the number good by  any manipulation of the younger  class. His army strength, both  actual and potential,, is decreasing.. His "effective man power  was diminishing rapidly from  June last year His maximum  man power has been reduced  this year and is wasting weekly.  NOTICE.      ..,    -.

The usefulness of the submarine, as this war has demonstrated, is sharply inherited by its  inherent limitations. It has not  proved formidable against armed  naval ships and is no substitute  for them. The British navy  would long ago have been destroyed if the vague notions of  laymen regarding the submarine  were even approxin-atc-ly true.  The underwater craft aceom  plished nothing in the great fight  off Jutland and has only a few  naval craft to its credit, and  these added in the earlier stages  of the war.  $1 a Year  every  Saturday at  BELLA COOLA, B.  m:n  HOE  3   0  THE two principal reasons  *   why   you   should   buy  "Shamrock" Hams, Bacon,  Lard, etc., are:  FIRST���������  There is none better.

Von Hindenburg and  judendorff have arrived at Berlin for council of war with the  laiser.    By way of The Hague the rumor comes that the King of  Spain may be invited by Central Powers to a big war council cal-  jjlated to have far-reaching results.    Primary object of King Al-  mso's invitation is to open  negotiations.    Expected statement  >f Germany's new peace terms by chancellor this week gives pro-  lise of startling results!" On Tuesday Bethmann Hollweg stipulated to discuss Germany's war aims this week, may prove test oj  Jhancellor's powers for Socialists state they are going to exact  ieclaration that he support "no annexations and no indemnitj  jrogram." Besides immediate war problems Socialists open confess for introduction of parliamentary system, feel they are growing in strength and time has come when they must make themselves heard in Germany. Successful raids by us last night southeast of Hargicourt, captured 35 prisoners. Hostile raiding party  repulsed near. Loos. Britain's pride outraged by raids.

French  renche3 on a front of about two miles in the Aisne sector been  iptured by Germans who took eight hundred prisoners.  Wednesday:    Berne.-Peace without annexation is not accept-  le to Germany.    Germany can win if she holds out.   Bethmann  bllweg so declared before main committee in Reichstag.    He also  ||clared: "I consider it my duty to remain chancellor for protec-  |on of the Fatherland.    I repeat, the formula of peace without  nexations is unacceptable to us.    We cannot declare our terms  peace.    We must fight and conquer."    Reports do not specify  w the speech was received.    Chancellor made vigorus attack on  e leader of the catholic centre, Erzberger, who had assailed pan-  'ermani.sm in his address last week and advocated peace without  nexation and indemnities.

With  fall of Halicz even the most cautious critics are now converted  to belief in Russian offensive.  Gen. Korniloff yesterday reported fresh progress west of Stanislau, beatjng down enemy's stubborn resistance and finally driving him to river Lbmnica. Fall  of Halicz presages big retirement.

Berlin despatch claims more than  1250 prisoners  captured.    Dunkirk is objective.    Enemy attack  farther   south   failed.     British  counter attack forcing invaders  back to original positions.  Turkish fleet and war office  bombarded. British made daring  and successful attack with airplanes at Constantinople. Former Hun cruiser badly damaged,  bombs made direct hits from a  height of eight hundred feet.  Enemy gunners flabbergasted  and attackers returned unscathed from raid.

Hollweg's resignation generally  Sieved resulted from intervention of crown prince. Official com-  [inication published yesterday says Emperor William expressed  jinion that the political and constitutional reforms demanded by  bichstag are such that they cbnce"rn not only himself but his suc-  Lssor, in as much as they would be permanent.

Dick, a" resident of North  Vancouver, is now the resident  stipendary magistrate at Rivers  Inlet for the fishing season.  J. H. Lunos has been reappointed fire warden for the Bella Coola  district, and is at present looking  over his beat in the upper part  of the valley.    The strike of fishermen at  Rivers Inlet had a good effect in  some ways, aside from the financial question. No fishing was  done for a week or so and it gave  the salmon a chance to gather  at the mouth of the inlet in large  numbers. With .fine weather  from now on fishing there is expected to be fair.  At Kimsquit the run of sock-  eyes are improving thoi gh, as  yet, the fishing now is'clone in  Dean Channel as far down as  Cousins Inlet.  At Namu the catches are about  the same as at this time last  year.    '������������������������������������'-���������  Bella Coola is doing well. Catches during the week ha\e been  very satisfactory. The jack cf  spring salmon is if arything  above last year's, which was considered good.

All the logging camps of the  Pacific Mills, Ltd., are now operating with nearly full crews,  and the logs are coming in at a  fair rate. It is surmised that  when the other unit to the paper  mill is completed it will take  something like a million feet of  logs a day to keep this enormous  plant going. At this rate of  manufacture, and considering  that there will be a loss of time  in the logging operation during  the winter months on account  of the weather conditions, the  company will have to cut a million and a quarter of logs a day  during the summer to insure the  running of the plant during the  whole year.

It is a common everyday question about roadwork and how  much money there is available  for it. The question would have  been more readily answered if  the people had taken precaution  some years ago to have opposed  the McBride government in the  fleecing of the province through  the Pacific Great Eastern Railway deal.  The parliamentary inquiry at  Victoria during the last session  demonstrated plainly that the  whole deal from first to last between the McBride government  and these, millionaire railway  builders was.fo rob the public.  The Pacific%reat Eastern Railway has: again* been unable to  meet its payments, the company  having defaulted on the fourth  payment of interest the amount  will now have to be put up by  the Provincial government. It  amounts to $423,000, which will  bring the total amount the company has been unable to pay to  $1,476,827. This is certainly a  nice sum that the taxpayers has  had to pay and if this money was  now in the treasury and to be  had for roadbuilding and other  development work in theprovince  things would look a little brighter-jthan they are at present.  Anglo-Saxon and Norse-  ��������� * man.  How great a part Norway has  played as an ocean carrier in the  present war, and how ruthlessly  her ships have been sunk by German U-boats may be inferred  from the fact that in London  alone more than 400 Norwegian  sailors were recently assembled  from torpedoed merchantmen.  At the banquet held in their  honor, Commodore Halsey, for  the occasion representing the  British Admiralty, delivered a  speech in which he, amongst  other things, said: "We only  need to read history to see how  closely related are the Britons  and the Norsemen, and we Britons are proud of this relationship.  I feel also sure that you Norsemen are proud of having the  same ancestry as we. From  whom has England her qualities  as a seafaring nation? The answer is without doubt: From the  Norse ancestors, who from the  9th to the 13th century ruled the!  seas. Thesexpeople founded;  colonies in the north of England,  in Scotland and in Ireland.

From the great viking Rollo descends the first of the Norman  kings of England, William the  Conqueror.  "It is a source of pleasure to  us that a British princess, Queen  Maud, is wedded to the sailor  king of Norway.  "The men w^o, in early days,  brought Christianity to Norway  came from England and Ireland,  and from England has Norway  her parliamentary form of government and other systems and  impulses that have led to the  resurrection of Norway; and 1  believe I am right in,saying that  England was first to acknowledge  Norway a modern power. For  a thousand years and more have  friendly relations existed* between Great Britain and Norway  which I trust shall not be brok  en.  WHY ARE THEY SENT?  Lieut.-Col. A. L. Bonnycastle,  who has just returned from England to Winnipeg after taking  the 200th Battalion overseas,  states there are 27,000 Canadian  soldiers waiting in England at  the present time to return to  Canada. The men have been discharged from service on account  of wounds, .physical,unfitness,  age and other causes. Only a  small percentage of this waiting  army are men. coming home on  furlough. According to the Col.  every Atlantic liner is crowded,  making it difficult to bring the  men across with despatch. There  are colonels sufficient in number  in reserve camps to form a battalion. They are all drawing  pay and doing little service.  No officer over 35 years of age  is allowed to cross to France.  Few officers under that age uo  over, as promotions are made  from men in the fighting ranks.  The latter 'statement of the  colonel is of interest, it is only  right that the man who has endured the knocks should be promoted. If officers over 35 years  of age are not allowed to cross  to France, why send them over-  seas at all? . -  .        O        .0:0 C C  Latest From Germany.

It is to be hoped that if  this conference is to be the means  of sending out German peace  proposals the Kaiser will not be  allowed to suggest the preface.  It will be remembered that the  last peace proposals by Germany  received scant consideration by  the Allies, chiefly on account of  the bombastic utterances of the  Kaiser. Here is one of,the Kais-  er^s proclamations to his army  and navy: "We have been victorious in all theatres of war, on  land and on sea. The greatest  battle'was our victory at Skager-  rak (in which the German" fleet  retired to its base and left the  British in command of the sea).  The gallant deeds of our submarines have secured for my navy  glory and admiration for ever.  God also in the future will be  with us."

A17HAT ambition more noble than to  be a producer of  the necessaries  of life?  Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  View of a ranch in Bella Coola Valley.  '"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 ; l^ng 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.  ������>ELLA 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.  t     >  SUBSCRIPTION   RATES OF  BELLA COOLA COURIER.

There would  have been no war, Red Bill, nq;  other monarchs sought a fray,-  but you were hot with lust to  kill, and drank a flagon to "The  Day." Had you but said, "Let  war talk cease," no legions would  have marched to die, and we  ; would see the\ dove of peace  'where .now the battle pennons  j fly.   But you for- carnage were  athirst,iind " War Lord "dreams  disturbed your sleep, and now  your butcher's name is cursed  wherever soldiers'widows weep.  As horror mounts on  horror's  head, and famine makes your  people thin, you wish your hands  ! were not so red, and whine that  (your's is not the sin.   But all  the weary world is bored when  you endeavor to explain that-you  were loath to take  the sword,  and strove for peace, and strove  in vain.    You   built your war  machine to kill, you longed to  see your neighbors wrecked; admit the truth, oh,  Bloody Bill,  and gain some fragments of respect.-���������Walt Mason.  "Don't you want to be on the  winning side?" asked the recruiting officer to a group of civilians.  "How do you know ours will  be the winning side?" asked the  wary prospective recruit.  - "Well, my lad," replied the  sergeant, "you know the Germans have been trying for more  than two years to win, and have  failed, don't you?,",.  ;.'"Yes."     /      - '      ,.

The usefulness of the submarine, as this war has demonstrated, is sharply'inherited by its  inherent limitations. It has not  proved formidable against armed  naval ships and is no substitute  for them. The British navy  would long ago have been destroyed if the vague notions of  laymen regarding the submarine  were even approximately true..  The underwater craft accGm  plished nothing in the great fight  off Jutland and has only a few  naval  craft to  its credit,  and  these added in the earlier stages  of the war.
