HiAihericans say that they have  beenf subjected to many indignities'in the last few days. It is  now impossible for women to  appear in the streets. The oldest  residents say they have not  known a time when the situation  was more tense, and they greatly  fear outrages against Americans  if conditions continue as at present.  Predicts Oil Boom  for Graham Island  Drilling Operations to Be Resumed  "It is little less than a crime  of negligence that those fields  have not been proven before  now," said Mr. J. W. Couvert,  C. E., M.E., after having made  a thorough investigation of the  oil fieldsof Blue Creek, surrounding Otard Bay.  "I have," continued the expert, seen a good many oil fields  in the raw, but never have I seen  stronger indications of oil nor  better conditions for exploring  and developing an oil field than  I found at Otard Bay. The showings extend for about twenty-  three miles.  "One company has been struggling along for several years  trying to raise capital to finish  their well. They are now down  about 850 feet and the surface  indications has been fully corroborated by the log of the well  showing the various s t r a t a  through which the drill has  passed. It is estimated that 450  feet more at the cost of a few  thousand dollars will tap the oil.  The pressure upon the oil is very  great judging by the way it has  been forced up through the soft  calcite seams. At the outcrop  of these seams the oil evaporates, leaving a seal of asphalt or  bitumen or wax. Some of these  lumps of paraffin wax are thirty or  forty pounds in weight, and the  wax is just as pure as that found  in a wax candle. The fact that  this oil undoubtedly has a paraffin  base makes the discovery of  great interest, as such an oil is  many times more valuable than  the California fuel oil. Paraffin  also contains over 240 byproducts  which give it great value."  Mr. Couvert concluded by stating that he had every reason to  believe that there are on Graham  Island as large deposits and much  higher grade oil than those found  in Alberta, and that when the  field is proven by the completion  of the well at Otard Bay a boom  such as Calgary is today enjoying can be anticipated.  Archduke and Duchess  Brutally Assassinated  Heir to Austrian Throne and Wife Shot to Death in  Main Street of City  Serajvo, Bosnia, June 29.���������After narrowly escaping death  from a bomb hurled at the royal automobile, Archduke Francis  Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria Hungary, and the  Duchess of Hopenberg, his morganatic wife, were shot dead  yesterday by a student on the main street of the Bosnian  capital. The Archduke and the Duchess were passing through  the city on their annual visit to the annexed provinces of  Bosnia and Herzigovina, and it was on their return from the  procession that this terrible tragedy was added to the long  list of those which have darkened the pages of recent history  of the Hopsburgs.  As the royal automobile reached a prominent point on the  route to the palace, an eighth-grade student, Navrion Prinzip,  sprang suddenly out from the crowd and without a moment's  delay poured a deadly fire of bullets from an automatic pistol.  The Archduke was struck full in the face and the. Duchess was  shot in the abdomen and throat, both dying in a few minutes  after reaching the palace, to which they were hurried.  Prinzip, the assassin, and a fellow conspirator named Gab-  riannvics who was responsible for the throwing of the bomb  from which the royal pair had escaped so narrowly, barely escaped lynching at the hands of the infuriated crowds.  Gabriannvics after his unsuccessful attempt to blow up the  imperial visitors sprang into the river in an effort to make his  escape.  The assassins interrogated, both apparently glory in their  dastardly exploit, Prinzip declaring that he had long intended  to kill some eminent personage from nihilist motives.  A few yards from the scene of the tragedy an unexploded  bomb was discovered, which shows the determination with  which the plot was laid.  Prinzip is a youth of 18 years, Gabriannvics is twenty-one.  Archduke Francis Ferdinand who was the heir apparent to  the throne of Austria was born December 18,1863. His father  Archduke Carl Ludwig was a brother of Emperor Francis  Joseph, and his mother was Maria Annunziato, daughter of  Ferdinand II.  weeks vacation, which he will  spend in a visit to the Interior  country. Combining business  with pleasure Mr. Landry will  make a close inspection of the  line from this place to One Eye  Lake. He is accompanied on his  trip by'P. J. Kenyon.  Mr. R. Edwards of Atnarko,  is in temporary charge of the  Bella Coola post office and telegraph station.  Foreman T. Draney and his  gang have ceased work on the  road from the town to the new  Bella Coola River bridge.  The S.S. Go'quitlam, "Union S.  S. Co., called at this port on  Thursday morning with a consignment of freight from Victoria, besides a large consignment  of powder to be used on road construction in the valley.  $1.00 a Year  calling he has chosen and is to  be congratulated on his recent  appointment.  Rev. W. H. Gibson has now  two sons in the missionary field,  his second son, Mr. John Gibson,  being in charge of the mission at  Skidegate.  Word has been received from  Mr. and Mrs. O. Fosbak, pioneer  settlers of this valley, who are  now visiting their old land, Norway, after an absence of over  thirty years. They say they  have been greatly struck with  the changes that have taken  place during that time. While  thoroughly enjoying their visit  and meeting with every kindness  at the hands of friends and relatives they state that they will  have no regrets when the time  arrives for their return to the  land of their adoption.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  The S.S.  Camosun arrived in ! to this port on Wednesday  port at 7 a. m. on Sunday with a'   number of passengers, besides  the usual large consignment of  freight for the cannery and the  merchants of the town.  '!; A.Russian has invented a floating storehouse for fuel and other  naval supplies which can be sunk  out of sight in the sea at the approach of a foe.  Extending Fort  George Water Works  Fort George, July 2.���������The Fort  George Citizens' Water Company  is applying for a license to use  200,000 gallons of water per day  from the Nechaco River. The  company also intends to build a  concrete reservoir with a capacity of 500,000 gallons. The extensions are planned so that the  company will be enabled to take  care of the growing population  of the district.  Motion pictures will be installed  on trains of the Trans-Siberian  railway to relieve the monotony  of the long journey.  B. M. Brynildsen, son of the  local merchant of that name, has  returned from New Westminster  where he has been attending the  Columbian college.  Mr. Pete Hanson of Houlton,  Oregon, and two friends are in  town. Mr. Hanson is interested  with the Hendricks Brothers and  Messrs. C. and W. White, in a  number of placer gold claims on  a tributary of Dean Channel, and  is awaiting |the return to town  of some of his associates when  they will leave for the claims.  All the interested parties have  unbounded faith in the proposition, and intend this summer  to make a thorough prospect of  the ground, with a view to ascertaining definitely the most expedient method of proceeding  with the work of development.  Needless to say the result of  their close investigation and the  announcement of their plans for  the future are being anxiously  awaited.  Mrs. and Miss Blayney left .by  the last steamer. They are on a  visit to Mr. A. Blayney at Francois Lake where they expect to  remain for several months.  Timber-inspector   W.   McRae  made one of his periodical visits  A very pleasant evening was  spent by the many people who  gathered at the Grand View  Hotel on Saturday evening at the  invitation of Mrs. J. S. Robinson  to witness the drawing for a  piano. The lucky number was  held by a recent arrival in the  valley, who is employed as blacksmith on the government works.  Dancing was indulged in until  the approach of midnight when  the party dispersed. Excellent  music was supplied by Mrs. T.  P. Saugstad (piano); Messrs. T.  P. Saugstad and Percy Gadsden  (violins); A. Crichton (cello).  The local tennis enthusiasts  are being favored with excellent  weather and are making the  most of their opportunities. The  game being entirely new to many  people here, it has not yet gained  much popularity, but when it becomes better known it is hoped  that the club will be well supported.    Mr. H. G. Anderson has moved  out of town, having taken up  residence in the house lately  occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Mac-  farlane.        T. Sleigh arrived down from  W. Lewen's ranch on Salmon  River on Sunday.  O. T. Landry, the local postmaster, telegraph operator and j  collector of customs,  left town I  on Wednesday morning on a two  Local farmers are busily engaged getting in their hay, in  which occupation they are being  favored by excellent weather.  Garden and field crops are in  splendid condition and from an  agricultural standpoint the valley never looked so well as it  does today. Other districts will  have to look well to their laurels year  on the occasion of the fall exhi  bition at Prince Rupert.  Three stick-Indians, Cahoose,  George Cahoose and Tilkey, appeared before W. H. Gibson, J.  P., at the Mackenzie School on  Thursday to answer charges of  assault on a white man.  The assault took place at Ca-  hoose's ranch on Salmon River,  where the white man had gone  to see Cahoose on business.  This is just another example  of the lawlessness that exists in  a country where the presence of  a police constable is a thing unknown.  The accused in this case came  down to Bella Coola in ignorance  that proceedings were to be taken  against them. Had they known  and chosen to evade justice, the  probability is they never would  have been apprehended.  An enjoyable picnic attended  by a large number of people was  held in Mr. Tom Draney's hay  field on Dominion Day. Games  of various kinds were thoroughly  enjoyed, the children especially  having a high time. The weather was glorious as is usual in  Bella Coola at this time of the  Dr. W. J. Quinlan's new dental  office is now completed even co  the painting and decorating and  presents a very pleasing appearance, which reminds one of the  words of the poet: "Step into  my parlor said the spider to the  fly."   Mr. M. Hammer of Nootsat-  sum, visited town early in the  week bringing with him a load  of excellent farm produce. He  reports that great improvements  have been made on the wagon  road between his ranch and  Hagensborg for which he says  credit is due to foreman Svisdahl.  Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland and  the Misses Addie and Phyllis  Gibson, returned from Bachelor  Bay on Thursday evening.  Many of our readers will be  interested to know that Mr.  Garnett Gibson, son of Rev. W.  H. Gibson our local missionary,  and who until recently was employed on the mission steamer  "Thomas Crosby," is now in full  charge of the mission at Salmon  River. Although very young to  be in charge of an important  post, he has already proved that  he is peculiarly  fitted  for the  v ���������<"������������"> -<_���������*"> <\ ���������  QUmrrh Nntto  Sunday School  Church Service  11  a. m.  -    7:  30 p. m.

From New Westminster comes  a report that Mr. Carl Suvik of  Cache Creek, who recently underwent a serious operation, has  suffered a dangerous relapse and  his condition is now very grave.  His many friends are anxiously  awaiting further news.  We are pleased to state that  Mr. Soren Christiansen has fully  recovered from his recent illness,  and is performing his avocations  ���������as hale and hearty as ever.  What was a near approach to  being a fatal accident occurred  in the survey camp of Mr. H.  Idsardi's party a short time ago.  A huge hollow tree fell onto a  tent which had a second or so  before been occupied by Messrs.  Carl Nylander and George Dixon,  The startled occupants rushed  out just in the nick of time, being apprised of their danger by  other members of the party  standing near.

Beyond the wreck of the tent no  damage was done; but the two  young men were extremely fortunate to escape without injury  or even the loss of their lives.

SATURDAY, JULY 4, 1914.  A Grand Opportunity.  The Courier is in receipt of a  letter from Mr. L. Bullock-Webster, secretary of the Northern  B. C. "Agricultural and Industrial  Association, in which he expresses appreciation of the assistance  which the district press is render-  ing to the Exhibition to be held  at Prince Rupert on September  30th,< October 1st and 2nd.  We would indeed be remiss in  our duty if we did less than our  utmost to assist the promoters  of this great movement, "which  rneans so much for Northern.  British Columbia. ���������"������������������.:.������������������  Last year out local ��������� farmers  were given ample opportunity  of doing honor to Bella Coola and  this whole northern district-by  taking full advantage of the  Prince Rupert Exhibition to advertise the agricultural possibilities of this valley. How lamentably they failed in what they  should have easily recognized as  a plain duty is too vividly remembered to need repeating.  The twoor three men who made  any pretense of sending in exhibits met with remarkable success, but no one can deny that  the majority of our farmers  treated the occasion with indifference.  We urge upon each bona-fide  farmer in the valley the expediency of sending a. large exhibit  to Prince Rupert this fall. Do  not leave it to the other fellow;  he may be leaving it to you.  Here is an opportunity for our  farmers to boost for Bella Coola  Valley and Northern B. C, and  we trust they will make good.  Where the Courier Stands.  It would be a very difficult  task for a public journal to endeavor to please all classes of  readers, so difficult indeed that  the Courier never has, nor do we  intend ever, to essay an attempt.  We believe that we are fulfilling an important mission in  making known public opinion on  public matters, more especially  such matters as pertain directly  to this part of the province generally, and the Skeena district  particularly.  The Courier has criticized, but  never unwarrantably, and who  will say that our attitude in regard to local public matters has  had other than good effect?  We will continue to work in  every way possible for the betterment of conditionsin Northern  B. C. We will encourage and  actively support anything which  we are convinced will make towards our future welfare and  prosperity. We will continue to  advocate a higher standard of  p u b 1 i c morals. But we will  jealously guard our right and  privilege as a public journal to  make known and condemn  "shady" actions on the part of  our public men, the wasteful and  extravagant expenditure of public funds, the bribing of a voter  by the offer of a "job" which he  must have in order to subsist.  We have spoken in unmistake-  able terms of just such things as  these on more than one occasion,  and in doing so we were aware  that we would incur the disfavor  of certain individuals.  Some few local readers whose  political corns we walked on, or  whose selfish interests we threatened, thought they could effectively -retaliate by withdrawing  their names from the list of our  subscribers. Small comfort it  must be for them to know that  for each subscriber we have so  lost, we have gained a score or  more.  We were not deterred, nor  will we ever be, by the thought  of offending a few when we  know that our plain duty lies in  protecting the many.  OILLETT'S  LYE  __irf__-D  _-���������������  SJGIUETT COMPANY JJjgg  "Mr      TORONTO ONT.���������������������������������'������" -  _.  Time to Call a Halt.  At this time when Canada is  experiencing a depression it  \vould be only reasonable to expect that provincial and federal  bodies would endeavor to devise  some means of reducing taxation.  Yet we fail to find any note of  the kind.  Many people believed that with  a new party in power at Ottawa,  there would follow an era of  even greater prosperity. But  the chiefs of this party have  shown themselves to be easy  marks for the persuasive lobbyist.  Their first move was to go over  to England, where they were  wined and dined by the armament makers. On their return we  have them breaking their necks  to give the trifling sum of $35,-  000,000 of our money to help the  poor   shipbuilders   and   cannon  makers of Great Britain, and by  so doing save the Empire from  going straight  and  speedily to  the dogs.   This was squelched.  Nothing daunted, they awaited  another opportunity of making a  big "splash   with   the   people's  money.    It came, and straightway they decide to vote $45,000,-  000 to help pay Mackenzie and  Mann to build a railway for Mackenzie and Mann.    A few more  millions   for the  Grand Trunk  Pacific.    That a million and a  half to reimburse the losers who  promoted   the    new    Farmers'  Bank should be taken from the  people, was their next proposal.  Surely it is time to call a halt  on these crazy spendthrifts. This  wild rush to spend money and to  increase taxes must be stopped.  Whatever party is in power it is  up to the people to demand efficiency and economy in public  affairs.  A Serious Problem.  ��������� The announcement that another  vessel is on her way from India  to Vancouver with four hundred  East Indians aboard will cause  deep concern on the; part' of  statesmen in both Great Britain  and Canada.  This expedition is a formidable  one, and cannot be considered a  parallel case to the Komagata  Mara, which clearly appears to  have been a challenge of our  present laws regarding immigration.  The men on the ship reported  to be now on her way to Vancouver have been carefully selected for physical fitness, they are  supplied with the amount of  money required bylaw; they will  come by continuous passage, and  under the regulations which fix  the several qualifications the immigration authorities may find  considerable difficulty in rejecting them.  The Order in Council of last  December prohibiting the admission of artizans and laborers is  still in force, but it might not be  impossible for these new applicants for admission to our shores  to show that they are of an entirely different class.  The promoters of the Komagata Maru venture made no attempt to fulfill the requirements  fixed by our regulations. As  British subjects they challenged  our right to refuse them admission to British territory.  With the arrival of the Christian Nichelson a much more distracting   problem   will   arise.  These passengers will probably  be  able to  demand  entry into  Canada on the grounds that they  have complied with the law, and  if they can establish their right  our immigration officials will be  powerless to reject them.   Their  success would  undoubtedly 'encourage others to promote further expeditions  under exactly  similar circumstances.    The outcome of this would be that the  city of Vancouver would soon be  in  a turmoil   of   racial   strife,  which would probably affect the  relations of Great Britain with  India far more  seriously  than  would the refusal of the Canadian  officials to allow the newcomers  to land.  The hope is being earnestly  expressed that the Imperial authorities will endeavor to arrest  the course of the vessel on her  arrival at Shanghai. Possibly  they tried to prevent her leaving  Calcutta, but as a matter of fact  they would have no more legal  right to interfere with the departure of these passengers from  India, than our own authorities  will have to refuse them admission to this country provided  they fulfill the conditions laid  clown in the regulations. The  situation is indeed a serious one.

Herald.  Prince   Albert  fHMr_������MH*VKMarcnt_-.  Definition of a Gentleman.  What makes a gerr.tleman ? This  is a puzzle to Britis.h legal minds  just now. The insurance act  says that anyone who earns $800  or more yearly withoir.t doing any  manual labor is a genti eman.  Fraudulent Advertising  The bill which the Minister of  Justice is putting through Parliament to protect the public from  those who seek by means of false  advertisements to rob and  swindle is long overdue. Millions of dollars have been secured  by fake land, mine, fur, patent  medicine and other advertisements. I has become necessary  to protect the public against  their own folly. While it is too  much to hope that any Act of Parliament will put an end to this  kind of swindling, the measure  of the Minister of Justice should  have the effect of curtailing it  and making more difficult the  efforts of those who in the past  have reaped a rich and easy  harvest. ���������St. John Globe.
