D.Sewell, one.of the  heaviest individual owners of  land on Graham Island.  "I covered a good deal of territory on the west coast," said  Mr. Sewell, "and I should judge  the field is extensive. I traveled  a good part of the recognized oil  field and it is, I should judge,  some twenty by ten or twelve  miles in extent���������that is where  the indications on the surface are  to be found where there is not  too much vegetation. When I  left the west coast the Pioneer  company was getting their drill  in shape to recommence operations.  "When they get oil, which I  have not the shadow of doubt  about, it will not be a proposition  for the Standard Oil trust or  some other concern getting hold  of. I believe the admiralty will  take over this field. It is the  best proposition on the west coast  for a naval base that I have ever  seen, and this undoubtedly will  be the outcome of the discovery  that there is oil there in commercial quantity. Otard Bay is  a good, deep harbor, and looks  out upon the broad Pacific. The  storms on the west coast have  worn the formation of the island  into all kinds of caves and cracks.  It is a dangerous coast for the  most part except at Otard Bay,  which offers excellent shelter."

Some of  these fugitives have arrived at  Avonia in a deplorable state.  The messages concludes with an  appeal to the powers to intervene and end an intolerable situation.

Both gentlemen paid a visit to  Hagensborg, which placeisgrow-  ing in importance from the standpoint of the commercial man.  The drive of twelve miles through  the most developed part of the  Valley is a delightful one in every  respect, and is generally eagerly  anticipated by commercial men  and others who have business at  Hagensborg.  Other passengers arriving by  the Camosun last Sunday included Messrs. D. Clayton and  E. M. Phelps.  Among the outgoing passengers by the last south-bound  steamer was Mr. W. Lewin, who  spent the previous week in town  on business.  Mr. Lewin has disposed of all  his cattle in the Salmon River  country to Messrs. Ed. Oien and  A. C.

Fifteen claims have been staked.  A few days ago the news leaked  out that a local company has  seven working and now getting  a hydraulic outfit. The place  was worked before as tailings  and the remains of a shack  and wheelbarrows both show.  Reports say there is gold in every  pan.

Birdmen Destroyed  Tribesmen's Camp  Paris, July 23.���������How two military aeroplanes destroyed with  bombs the otherwise inaccessible  mountain stronghold of the Riato  tribesmen in the Taza region of  Morocco is described in despatches which have been received here.  The tribesmen's retreat had  been located and General Gou-  raud sent out the two aeroplanes.  The attacking parties carried  four bombs each. They speedily  discovered the hiding place and  dropped the bombs with such  precision that the camp was destroyed, many tribesmen being  killed.  Mr. David Spotton of the Crossing, who during the  week, reports conditions prosperous in that portion of the  valley. Beyond the fact that  wet weather has interfered somewhat with the work of harvesting the hay crop, the farmers  generally are in a merry mood  in anticipation of bumper crops  of fruit and garden produce.  Fred Anderson came up from  Ocean Falls on Tuesday night  and is at present taking the rest  cure in the town.  P. J. Kenyon left town on  Wednesday on a trip to One Eye  Lake.  A large number of Stick-Indians from Alcatcho and Cluskus  Lake are at present in town buying supplies. Some have already  left with their packtrain for  their homes, while others are  preparing to leave early next  week.  The interior Indians having  enjoyed a prosperous winter in  the line of trapping, brought  down a large quantity of furs  which they have disposed of to  the local merchants and now is  following the joyous period of  spending, an occupation in which  the average Stick-Indian excels.  Fred Covey and Andy Wood,  well known handloggers came  into town on Wednesday.  THIS has been written for your  benefit "Oil is King."

Recent arrivals from Kimsquit  report that part of a human leg  encased in a high boot was discovered by a fisherman on the  beach close to the mouth of the  Salmon River.  It is considered probable that  the limb was part of the remains  of a man named Bennett, who  was drowned in the Salmon River  last summer while engaged with  a party of timber cruisers who  were cruising the holdings of the  Ocean Falls Company in that  neighborhood.  Continued wet weather is playing havoc with the hay crop in  the valley. Several farmers have  already lost heavily and much  anxiety is felt regarding the remainder of the crop.

In this they  were successful and left about  midnight taking with them Jack  Jackson, John Nelson and J. H.  Langill.  Already several large rafts of  logs have been despatched to  mills atSwanson Bay, Vancouver  and New Westminster.  V. J.

Mr. Morrison has seen consideiable of the  valley during his stay and expresses himself as agreeably  surprised at the progress which  has been made by the farmers.  He was much struck with . the  fine orchards and remarked on  the excellent prospects of a  bumper fruit crop.  Sockeye fishing in local waters  has improved considerably during the last week, good catches  by the fishermen have been general, and there is every prospect  of this season's pack approaching the record for the local cannery.  Late word from Kimsquit says  that the run of sockeye, which  is somewhat later than usual, is  very encouraging. The cannery  crew are kept busy coping with  the supply of fish and the pack  is expected to exceed the  average.  From Rivers Inlet also comes  news of an excellent run of fish,  while at Smiths Inlet the cannery is being taxed to its utmost.  (Eln.rrh Ntfiir?  Sunday School  Church Service  11  7:30 p. m.

SATURDAY, JULY 25, 1914.  Even Mr. Bowser Feels  Almost Ashamed.  . A certain section of the local  Conservative party have at last  found a solution to the problem  as to why? Bella Coola Valley is  being so shabbily treated by the  provincial government in regard  to roads and trails.   Great was  the joy in' the local Tory ranks  when they were able to announce  with considerable gusto that $14, -  000 was to be spent on the roads  in the valley.    Perhaps half of  this amount has been spent and  work has been practically closed  down for the season.     Rumor  has it that in  addition to the  usual ten per cent held back for  contingencies, a cool $2000 of the  money appropriated for roads in  this valley has been allotted to  Takush   Harbor or some   such  place.   So that our Conservative  friends have been   much   concerned as to the reason, and with  wonderful discernment areclaim-  ing that it is all on account of  the frequent   criticisms   which  have������appeared in the columns of  the Courier.   There is every evidence that this shallow excuse  has eminated from the heads of  the local Conservative Association.  Let us   study this  matter a  little.   The Courier has repeatedly   charged   the   government  with following a wrong policy as  regards the construction of roads  and trails throughout the Northern portion of the province.   We  have   taken   exception,  in   the  strongest terms,  to the statement by the Premier that public  works would have to be curtailed  "PARTICULARLY   IN   THE  NORTH.''   We have opposed the  policy   of   building   automobile  roads for tourists, laying out ornate parks, and building palatial  offices in London for the agent-  general, while settlers had not  even decent trails to get to and  from their farms.    In these matters we have criticized repeatedly.    Where we justified ?    Who  shall  be our judge?    Lest our  Conservative   friends   should  charge us'with  discrimination,  let us take Hon. W. H. Bowser,  who it must be remembered came  North in   order   to   judge   our  worthiness.    Lest there be any  doubt we quote from a Conservative   paper,    the   Vancouver  Daily  Province.      Speaking at  Vanderhoof in the Nechaco Val  ley, Mr. Bowser is reported as  saying: "Speaking for the government, and especially for myself, I can say that we came here  not to meet townsite agents, but  actual settlers, people who have  had the courage to come here  and get a start, as farmers are  the people we want to assist. IN  THE  PAST   WE   HAVE   NOT  SERIOUSLY ENOIJGH FACED  THE PROBLEM OF SUPPLYING   ROADS  AND   BRIDGES  FOR MEN WHO  ARE PIONEERING.   IT ALMOST MAKES  ME  FEEL  ASHAMED   THAT  IN   THE   PAST   WE   HAVE  SPENT  MONEY  BUILDING  FINE  AUTOMOBILE   ROADS  DOWN AT THE COAST WHEN  SETTLERS   HAVE   HAD   TO  CARRY THEIR HOUSEHOLD  GOODS   ON   THEIR   BACKS  THROUGH THE UNCUT WILDERNESS.    The country must  be opened up.     This trip has  opened my eyes.    I assure you  that the seriousness of conditions  appeals to me."  Mr. Bowser is almost ashamed.  He would have us believe that  his recent trip through the North  has been a revelation to him. He  says, "this trip has opened my  eyes." How is it that our representative has failed to put the  requirements of his district be-  fore the government? Why is  it that he has not felt shame as  Mr. Bowser now says he does?  Mr. Bowser admits that the  North has not been treated fairly  in the past, yet our local representative has consistently boasted of the way the government  . has opened up the country within,  this district.  The.attitude of the Courier in  regard to public works in the  North is vindicated by this utterance of Mr. Bowser, and once  again it is up to certain local  Conservatives to "keep mum"  until they can find more justifiable grounds for complaint  against the''Courier."  Bella Coola���������Tatla Lake  Road.  Mr. Bowser is feeling a sense  of .'shame at the way the North  has been neglected by the government. He says, "the country  simply must be opened up."  This can never be accomplished  under the present system of road  building.    We must have roads  that start from somewhere and  go somewhere; roads which will  bring one settled area into communication with another. . Bella  Coola is the natural outlet for a  vast tountry, and until it can be  properly utilized as such cannot  possibly  flourish  as   it   should.  Every man, woman and child in  the valley recognizes this fact.  Nor can the country tributary to  Bella Coola prosper' while- the  settlers are at, the disadvantage  of having to obtain their supplies  via Ashcroft and   the   Cariboo  roadi with the  consequent prohibitive freight rates.   Of course  a railroad to Bella Coola is the  fond  hope of  everyone hereabouts, but it is well to bear in  mind that in this matter we can  do little to ensure a realization  of that hope.  Nor is a railway essential to  the future prosperity of Bella  Coola Valley.  A wagon road through to the  Interior, over which could4 be  driven cattle for shipment to  market. A road over which  heavy loads could be freighted  by motor-truck would revolutionize the farming and stock-raising  industry in Bella Coola and the  vast undeveloped hinterland,  where people today are afraid to  settle because of lack of transportation facilities.  We have repeatedly commended this matter to the local Conservative party, and we do so  again.  Now is the time for action.  Mr. Bowser says; ' 'the country  simply must be opened up." Let  the local Conservative party  show him how, by constructing  a road from this place to Tatla  Lake, a vast and rich county can  be opened up at a very small  cost.  It must be remembered that  nowhere on the coast, north  from Vancouver, is there the  same natural pass to the interior  plateau as is offered by Bella  Coola Valley.  This fact should be brought  plainly to the notice of the government.  We respectfully urge on our  Conservative friends to strike  while the iron is hot.  Mr. Bowser at this late date  professes to see the error of the  government's ways, and admits  the unfairness of spending huge  sums on automobile., roads for  joyriders, while the settlers in  the North are without roads or  even trails.  Mr. Manson, our member,, also  professes to see the justice of  our request for a road into the  Interior.  It is simply up-to us to go after  it,, and keep after it, and in a  matter of this kind it is only  natural to expect the party in  sympathy with the government  in power to take the lead.

C.  /considerable doubt has been  ^ expressed as to whether Sir  Alexander Mackenzie did first  sight salt water at Bella Coola  after his memorable journey.  Some people still maintain that  it was more probably at the  neighboring port of Kimsquit.  The claim of Bella Coola to the  distinction is strengthened by  the fact that the local Indians  tell the following story:  Just about one hundred and  twenty years ago, a number of  Bella  Coola Indians who lived  close to the Kahylst River were  surprised one fine July evening  by the sudden appearance of a  party  of white   men  who  had  come  down   from  the  Interior  guided  by  Stick-Indians.     The  Bella Coola  Indians had  never  seen  a white  man  before and  were mystified  by  the  appearance of the  party,  finally concluding that they were Indians  who had lived long ago and had  come back to earth with a white  skin.    The chief of the Indians  received the strangers very hospitably.   He ordered to be prepared for them   an  impromptu  feast of hemlock bark dipped in  oolachan    grease,    which    the  strangers did not appear to enjoy.    Anxious to please, he next  offered a dish consisting of salmon eggs with oolichan  grease,  then berries mixed with the inevitable grease  but these  also  were gracefully declined.    The  next attempt, however, met with  a better result, for that was a  fine smoked spring salmon which  the strangers seemed to greatly  enjoy.  The party were accompanied  by a very large dog, that to the  Indians was so big and so wise  that they thought it was almost  human.  An interesting article in the  possession of the white men was  a wonderful box, which could  not only tell a person just where  to go, but tell him the time also*  This was almost too much for  the Indians.  After a few days rest, these  white men procured two canoes  and set off down the Bella Coola  River, in due course landing at  the mouth. Proceeding down  Labouchere channel, they turned  up South Bentinck Arm as far  as the Island, then back to Noo-  sick, about nine miles down the  channel and where there is a  small Indian reserve.  After staying a short while at  at Noosick, the leader of the  party painted something on a  rock, then they returned up the  river and back to where they  had come from.  So runs the story which gives  considerable credence to the belief that it was at this place that  the intreped explorer reached  the Pacific coast. Incidentally  the Kimsquit Indians have no  such story to tell.

As a result  of the building of the Assouan  clam on the Nile, the primary object'of which was  to conserve  water for irrigation   purposes,  the development of 5,000 horsepower in the form of electrical  energy has been made possible.  Different purposes to which this  power can be applied  are now  under consideration.    One horse  power will manufacture two tons  of calcium cyanide in one year,  and   thus   the   Assouan   power  could turn out 100,000 tons pet-  annum���������that is to say, ������900,000  worth- of the fertilizing agent  most   extensively   required   in  Egypt.    Another use the power  could be put to, as shown by Sir  William Willcocks' recent work,  is summer irrigation, on an even  more   extensive   scale   than at  present provided for.

Wholesale  DRY GOODS AND MEN'S FURNISHINGS  anufacturers  Knew What Protection Meant  The preference idea allowed  the Laurier government to get  rid of tariffs that could not have  been abolished in any other way.  Even in that form the relief provoked honest predictions of disaster  from   leading   politicians  unable to think clearly on economic questions.     The British  people knew a preference as proposed by the late Mr. Chamberlain would not mean a small loaf  for the buyer of foreign grain  and a high loaf at the same price  for the buyer of colonial grain.  They knew that prices would be  equal, that all loaves would be  slightly reduced,  and  that the  attendant  levy   on   the   people  would go partly  to the public  treasury, partly to the territorial  landlord, and partly to the colonial  farmer.     A clear understanding saved the British people  from the entering wedge of pro-  Premier Borden will  live in  Canadian history as Sir Robert,  the Unread, and the Great Pro-  crastinator.    Delay and vacillation  are  his   characteristics  in  dealing -with, Canadian  affairs.  Vigor,  progressiveness and the  keeping of faith with the people  are lacking.    He trifles with the  questions of unemployment and  the  high  cost of   living.     His  promise to appeal to the people  on the navy question has gone  unredeemed.     His government  fails to make good its declaration  that the Naval Service Act would  be repealed..    The pledge   the  Premier gave in  Opposition . to  take prompt steps to stamp out  electoral   corruption   has   gone  unfulfilled, and  such  action as  has been taken was the direct  result of a Liberal motion in the  Commons this session.   The Senate reform the Premier promised  has not been undertaken.    The  assurance he gave the Western  farmers that if elected he would  have the Dominion take over the  terminal   elevators   is   honored  only in its breach.    His attitude  towards technical  education is  one of procrastination only.    Sir  Robert does nothing toward redeeming his pledge to hand over  to the Prairie Provinces the control of their natural resources.  Nothing has been done toward  that civil" service reform which  the    Premier   promised   the  country.      He   plays   with   the  question of branch railways in  the Maritime Provinces.    In two  things only does Sir Robert show  vigor���������one, the granting of increased     tariff,    privileges    to  Special Interests; the other, the  giving of scores of millions of  public money to favored railway  corporations.  The People Must Pay.
