The  jaws of the German nut-crackers  are nearing each other steadily,  but the Grand Duke has no intentions of allowing them actually to meet on the Russian nut,  with   the   smooth   co-operation  necessary for complete success.

Increase the Fighting Efficiency of Oar Forces  at the Front  When we read in the newspapers of how Vancouver in  a few days raised over $50,000 for the purpose of furnishing our battalions in war, with modern machine guns, our  hearts are fired with enthusiasm at the thought that  though living as we do in this remote part of the Empire  we can also add to the fighting strength of the army by  furnishing sinews of war. It is found that one machine  gun is equal to 120 riflemen. The Germans have sixteen  machine guns to 1000 men. Our battalions have only four  a piece. British Columbia wants her soldiers to be equally well equipped as the foe they are fighting; and we at  home must see that they have a fair'chance to win, when  they risk their lives in our defense.  Will Bella Coola Furnish a Gun?  Bella Coola has furnished a few men for the war and  more will join in the near future; but if we cannot send  120 men to the front we can buy a machine gun, which in  efficiency is equal to 120 rifles. One such gun costs $1000.  This sum can easily be raised among us if all will join���������  and who will not "do his bit" at this time ?  Come to the Meeting!  A meeting to discuss the particulars of how to raise the  money will be held at the Mackenzie School this evening  at 7:30.    No one can afford to stay away.   Everbody come.  "God Save the King."  Petrograd, July 23.���������The Austrian-German drive from north,  west and south' on Warsaw is admitted serious by high officials.  The official communication reads:  "On the left of the Vistula our  troops occupied the Blonie:Nad-  arzyn road and the outlying defenses of Ivangorod.   The battle  between Vistula and Bug yesterday again assumed a very desperate character.    The enemy is  concentrating his  principle  efforts in the direction of Baljitze,  Travennkiand Groubechoff; several villages on the heightschang-  ing hands many times.    On an  ex tended,-front, above Sokol we  cleared the right bank of the Bug  of the enemy and captured about  1500 prisoners in the village of  Potourjitze.     Near the villages  of Mrotchtka and.Kavaka in the  course of a counter attack the  Cossacks fell upon and sabred a  German company. In the Niemen  district there wasdeperate fighting yesterday."  any Are Electrocuted  The Hague, July 22.���������Reports  received from the Belgian-Dutch  frontier are to the effect that  many persons are being killed by-  a high voltage of electric wire  fence which has been constructed  by the Germans along the entire  border. Every morning, it is asserted, there are found from half  a dozen to a dozen charred bodies  of  Belgian   peasants, including  Bella Bella, B. C, July 22.���������  News reaches us from Bella  Bella that two Indians, Lome  Williams and John Wooten, have  returned from an expedition to  the southern point of Calvert  Island, situated near the mouth  of Rivers Inlet. Their activities  were directed against the sea  lions which in late years have  proved so destructive to the  salmon industry on that part of  the coast.  The Dominion government has  found it necessary to offer a  bounty of $2 each for the destruction ofthispest. And these  two Indians have certainly scored  in their campaign against this  foe of the salmon, as they killed  no less than 1600 of them. They  are good-sized beasts, vveighirg  as high as 1000 lbs. The number  of those killed were about evenly  divided between young and full-  growns. The bodies are not utilized for any purpose whatever,  which seems like a great waste  in times of depression like these.  It is stated on good authority  that the hides can be used in the  manufacture of shoes and gloves,  and the Indians, who speak from  experience, claim the meat is  equal to that of the mountain  goat.  In view of these facts would it  not be of some service for our  department of fisheries to instruct our fishery officers to take  a day off and investigate thesea  lion?

The apple crop  is looking excellent, some of the  varieties are ahead of former  years.  Chas. Tucker, Dominion constable, is out again looking for  trouble. He went away last  week on the Dominion launch  Charles Todd. It is safe to say  he will find no trouble among the  Indians and he being the captain  and Herbert Sutherland the engineer it is equally safe to assume they will have no trouble  with the launch.  Evidences of prosperity and  enterprise are not wanting in out-  otherwise quiet valley. One of  our prosperous farmers, John  Widsten, has decided to put in a  water system into his residence.  O. Landry, the telegraph operator, avails himself of slackness of messages offering at his  office to make a tour of the line  for the purpose of repairs.  Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Sutherland  gave a large number of the  younger element of our town an  outing on the 20th inst. on their  fine and commodious launch Im-  pala. The excursion, favored  with ideal summer weather,  made Bachelor's Bay its object.  The Sutherland's have at this  place a house and clearing. The  many attractions of the trip included bathing in the salt water  which is a novelty in this part of  the world. And to say that the  excursionists had an enjoyable  time during the whole trip is  stating it mildly.  Mr. J. D. Wiedahl of Strandby,  Vancouver Island, is making a  protracted stay in the valley.  He came here on his launch on  a trip of recreation and exploration. He declares himself charmed with our valley and is contemplating buying a piece of  land to make his home here.  c  Qllutrrlr Ntftirr  Sunday School  Church Service  -    10:45 a. m.  -   7:30 p. m.

SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1915.  The Government Must Do  Its Part.  At a'time-when   every  loyal  Britisher,   whether   native-born  or naturalized, should make sac-  rifices and contribute according  to means and ability towards the  . different funds or activities which  go toward the prosecution of the  national defense, it must be borne  .   in mind that urging others to do  something and felicitating ourselves upon the achievements and  sacrifices of others is compara-  ' tively easy and is, if not 'accompanied by actions and sacrifices  worthy of the cause, only a very  -   cheap form of patriotism.    To  travel around the country-.at a  high salary and still higher expense  account and proclaim  in  loud terms our duty, our loyalty  and heroism is in some people's  eyes the essence of patriotism,  and they applaud it accordingly.  Let a humble journalist point out  the hollowness of such professions and he will be looked upon  as a person who puts partisanship  before   patriotism,   and is  denounced accordingly.  The cry is: "Do not mention  the things our leaders do towards  the weakening of the country,  bat just join the chorus, 'enlist!  contribute!' "  We   have   recruiting   officers  _  travelling through  the country  appealing to ������he young men to  come to the colors, and from reports received they are meeting  with success.    The men are coming forward and enlist as fast as  the country can equip them. We  notice also that subscription lists  for  the   purchase   of   machine  guns have been started in Vancouver   and   is   meeting  with  hearty response.    The people are  contributing  to the  Red Crors  fund in liberal amounts.    These  efforts on the part of the public  will be continued as long as the  need exists, and it will not be  necessary to confine the efforts  of the journals of the country to  urge the people on  these lines  exclusively.    They will do their  part without such excessive appeals.  It appears to us to be our duty  not only to appeal to the people  to make sacrifices and continue  to do so, but also to call attention  to the existence of the wide room  for sacrifices that can be made  on the part of the public servants  also.    They should not be over-  Labor's Unrest.  Significant rumors of serious  labor troubles in Great Britain  and Germany reach our office  through different channels. The  coalminers in Wales, to.the number of 150,000 have gone out on  strike, defying the.government's  authority as expressed through  the passing of the so called Munitions, measure. This strike  will have the effect of shutting  off- the supply of coal for' the  British navy and is, in the present condition of affairs, looked  upon as becoming the most  serious in, the history of. the  country.  But it is not only Great'Britain  which has the very'difficult labor  problem to deal with. Indica-  tions that conditions in Germany  are even more serious are forthcoming. The following despatch  from Geneva, Switzerland, tells  the story of impending trouble.  A report has reached Basel that  ahig strike is threatened at the  Krupp works at Essen, Germany,  the znovement being headed by  the Union of Metallurgical Workmen and the Association of Mechanics. . They demand higher  wages because of the cost of  living, and shorter hours because  of the great strain under which  they work, the report says:  "The workmen are said to be in  an angry mood and threaten the  destruction of machinery unless  their demands are granted im-  immediately.

The cause of the proclamation is deploring political discussions  not so plain, but in view of the during the war. Mr. J. W. de  despatch from Geneva quoted B.

Later we have learned that  martial law is proclaimed in Germany. Nothing but internal unrest can- account far anything  like that as matters stand.  We do *not like to be counted  among alarmists- and .yet we  must confess that labor troubles  at this stage has an ugly look.  It is no time to. block the government's operations when it is  conducting a war' against the  enemies of the country and  should not,be thought of. Some  people may feel they are unjustly  treated and try to obtain redress;  but during times of war it must  be done by peaceable means. To  try to secure it by force is ,in  times of peace a species of anarchism, but in times of warjtis  closely allied to treason. How  to deal with problems of such  nature will tax the ingenuity and  tactfulness of the" government,  and we can but hope that as far  <  as Great Britain is concerned the  trouble may be averted and the  men be persuaded to go to work  without impairing the supreme  authority and prestige of the  government.  The fact is, the spirit of democracy is rising steadily. This  war will give it a great forward  movement. People will in the  future demand that they be consulted  before  the   sons of the  tained a despatch from Amster- nation be sent forward to fight  dam that Kiel, the German naval I battles, and give their lives inefficiency.    Then, again, the one  discuss politics:  "Your article is an appeal to  us to forget'-politics in the remembrance of the world tragedy,  and to remember we are fighting  for our property, liberty and our  very existence.  "Permit me to take exception  to the suggestions of your article.  "The one blot on our conduct  in this war is not the maelstrom  of recriminations in Manitoba. It  is the rotten political conditions  that have existed in Manitoba,  and are now, let us hope, being  purified in this maelstrom.   The  one blot is not, as you state, the  publication of 'The Crisis in B.  C.,' but the fact that conditions  or any of the conditions have existed as set out in this pamphlet.  The one blot is not that the Liberals have used it against the  Conservatives   that   there   has  been graft in war contracts, but  the blot is that this graft has  existed and to a shameful extent.  The   investigations   into   these  evils is not itself the evil, but  the one redeeming feature of the  evil.   If the function of an opposition in checking up the acts  of the government is meritorious  in times of peace, surely its merit  is still greater when we find the  fighting efficiency of our men is  impaired or threatened to be impaired by defective equipment,  the supplying of ;which was made  possible through graft and in  _=  Gaalt Brothers Limited  WHOLESALE T>RY GOODS  361 Water Street        Vancouver, B.C,  ./;���������,<!

In any controversy it is but  fair that both sides be given  a hearing. The Courier wants  to be fair and therefore take,  pleasure in publishing Sir Richard's defense of the excessive  price paid by him for the two  submarines. The following is  an extract of a letter written by  Sir Richard to "The Advertiser"  of London, Ont, and is as follows:  "I have no objection to criticism as to the price paid.or as to  the transaction from a business  or political point of view, but 1  do think it is very unfair, unmanly, to convey the impression that I or any member of the  Government or the party to  which I belong, or any go-between, were the benificiary to  any extent. Not a cent of commission was paid to anyone directly or indirectly. There were  not two cheques paid by the  British Columbia Government. I  personally had amarked cheque in  the name of the British Columbia  Government for $1,150,000 paid  to Mr. Patterson of the Puget  Sound Construction Company,  Seattle.  "I did not  'unload' the submarines on the government at  Ottawa.     Had  the government  there not confirmed this transaction the Province of British Co-  lumbia  would   cheerfully   have  borne   the   burden   of   defense  which the submarines involved.  It  was  perilous  times.     I  had  private information from official  sources that war was imminent  and   that   there   were German  cruisers within striking distance  of this coast.    There was no time  to   parley  with   Ottawa   or   to  haggle   with    the   construction  company as to price.    I had to  pay what was asked or lose the  opportunity.    If the government  at Ottawa, in the circumstances,  had paid three times what was  paid it would still have been a  very wise transaction.    I have  it on high authority that there  was no conceivable reason why  the German cruisers had not attacked our coast cities and destroyed them except for the submarines at Esquimalt.    The sub-  ! marines were unexpected factors  in the German designs on this  ; coast   and   the   Germans   were  ! afraid to take the chance.    As  : to the efficiency of the  submarines, they have been in British  ; Columbia since  the  war broke  j out and have been satisfactorily  | operated.     They are  here now  i for examination by military ex-  i ports."

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.

This fact -was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.

To  prevent late fall growth a cover  crop of clover, grains, grasses or  weeds   is   recommended   to  be  sown about the middle of July  or later.    If the trees are making  too much growth the cover crop  -should remain  as a sod for a  year   or ' so,   or - else   the land  plowed in  spring and used for  vegetables.    When the trees are  slow in making growth in spring  or early summer the cover crop  should be plowed under as early  as  weather  will   allow   in   the  spring and no crop planted near  the trees, but the land kept well  cultivated.    If manure is placed  around trees and over ground do  this i,n the early winter.   This  also protects the roots in winter.  Artificial fertilizers.  To create  growth use 200 lbs. of Nitrate of  Soda1 per acre for two sowings in ,  the spring and  early summer.  To aid fruit on healthy and strong  growing ' trees   use  Basic   Slag  (Thomson's phosphate) and Nitrate of Potash in the fall, using  250 lbs. "of both to the acre. Artificial fertilizers are not necessary  if manure and  wood ashes are  to be had.  Woodashes. These are most  valuable and may be used instead  of potash salts.  Pests.
