There were two reasons for this; one, was an exceptional large cargo of freight being handled at different ports of  call en route.   The second, was  that when'the ship touched Vancouver o'n its return from here  last week a strike was on, and  deckhands,  firemen,   coal passers, all  walked  ashore.    Their  demand  was a rise in pay, to  which the  operating   company  would not agree.   However, ye  old marriner, Capt. Brown, had  made up his mind that the sailing of the ship on the regular  schedule should not be interfered  with for such a small thing as a  e g->^<vf>^cttr>������<9Cf< <_ ������">"Cs������"s=-.<ce e  i]urrl} Nottr?

For, at the moment;  - that scythe is striking both sides  with fearful havoc. The hour  will come when it will be finally  swung on one side or on the  other.

Now is the time for  members of the local Farmers'  Institute to get busy and see that  the institute ".possesses a stumping machine, to loan out to the  members this Fall.  Hon. John Olivier, minister of  agriculture, .has authorized the  purchase of a limited number of  stumping machines to bp supplied  to Farmers'Institutes on a deferred payment system. This  action on the part of the minister of agriculture is the outcome  of a number of requests.which  have been received by the department from Farmers' Institutes. In giving the Farmers' Institutes this opportunity to purchase these machines the department assumes absolutely no responsibility and makes no recommendations .regarding the comparative efficiency of the various  types of machines on the mar-  ken. The deputy minister and  superintendent of Institutes, Mr.  Wm. B. Scott, _ias witnessed several demonstrations and at each  one the results have been satisfactory.  The Department of Agriculture  will supply application forms.to!  . ���������. ���������      ' j  any  Farmers'  Institute on re-!  quest.    These   forms   must be  signed by the president, vice-'  president and directors and also  by five members of the Institute..  Freight charges on the machines  must be paid by the Institute  from the factory. Terms of payment for the machines are: one-  third on delivery; one-third in  one year and remaining third in  two years. No interest will be  charged on unpaid balances but  interest at 10 per cent will be  charged on overdue payments.  Institutes that fail to make their  payments promptly, will hot receive their per capita grant on  account of membership, but this  sum will be'dovoted towards the  payments due. The Department  recommends that all Institutes  securing these machines adopt a  plan whereby a fixed,charged of  so much per diem be paid' by  members who use the machine.  By this means a fund will "be  provided towards paying the cost  of the machine and the depreciation in value.     -  '      "^      ���������  o     o     o     o      .      .

The former head of  the militia department makes  the grayest of accusations against the' prime minister when he  alleges, that Sir Robert Borden,  at the urging of certain other  members of the cabinet, had requested the minister to pursue  recruiting less vigorously.  That Sir Sam has at least  the courage of his convictions  was shown when he gave the  prime minister day and date for  his allegation and offered to prove  it by reading the premier's own  letters to him on the subject.  According to Sir Sam, the premier feared opposition to conscription then developing in' Tor  rontoand was prepared to sacrifice the country's needs to party  exigencies. This alleged, attitude  i i r  of a few months ago affords a  very interesting' contrast to the  motives professed by the leader  of the government,at this time,  when he asserts that the position  of the government in regard to  compulsory service is inspired by  the highest ideals of patriotism.  Reading the statement of Sir Sam  after the recent speech of Sir  Geo." Foster gives the average  Canadian a feeling of suspicion,  not unmixed with alarm. - This  is accentuated by,the bald assertion of the former minister that  the inaction of the government,  to which in large part he blames  the alleged failure of the volunteer system, was caused by consideration of the interests of the  profiteering firms who have fattened on the agony of the nation.  This indictment was supplemented by the declaration. of the  former , minister   that- all   the  other,vmembers of  the cabinet  were,engaged in assisting in this  work   by   their meddling,   hindrance and interference with  him and his duties as head of the  militia  department.     Whether  intentional or not this interference was in the interests of the  profiteers; this is the inference  drawn  from  the  ex-minister's  statement.  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co. Ltd.

Owing to a strike of fishermen for higher prices, fishing  at Rivers Inlet is being held up.  The canners arranged in the  early part of this year to give  20 cents per fish for cannery  gear and 32 1-2 cents per fish for  independent gfcar, this being an  advance of five cents up'on the  preceeding year. The white  fishermen considered this was  not an adequate price consider-  ing the present high selling price  and are now striking for 25 .and  37 1-2 cents per fish. The managers have>so far met their* demands half way and offered 221-2  and 33 cents, which up to the  present, the strikers do not seem  disposed to accept, even though  it constitutes a "rise of 50 per  cent on last year's price: conse-  SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINING  ; ;     REGULATIONS  f0A������.

DENMARK ENRICHED BY WAR.  The gold mine of Denmark is  shipping. Every company that  has an old hulk to repair, paint  and look sailable, is seized upon  by either German or British  agents and pressed into war service in one form oranother. The  annual reports of fourteen Danish shipping companies published  to date, show that for last year  they paid dividends averaging  62,per cent of their capital, or,a  sum of 43,000,000 kroner, which  is considerably more than the  value of their whole fleet before  the declaration of war.

A bullet moving about freely  in a soldier's neart, causing no  discomfort, was the unique discovery of a French surgeon.  After recovering from a wound  received some months previously, the soldier insisted that some  foreign body was present in his  chest, therefore a special X-ray  examination was made. .This  brought to notice the free shrapnel bulk, in the left ventricle of  the heart, where it was being  swirled about over the entire extent of the cavity at each contraction of the heart.  be sent over here," but they are  keeping the hospitals in France  as clear as possible. I was in  France only about ten weeks;  just joined the battalion in time  to get in on the Vimy Ridge affair. That was a terrible fight,  and the Canadians lost heavily;  but what Fritz's losses must  have been we have only a vague  idea. Hundreds of Germans  were buried in their dug-outs.  I shall never forget the-terrible  sights the morning after we  drove Fritz off the ridge. And  the ridge itself! . It's really true  that there was not a square yard  that was not turned up by shell  fire. It was a matter of worming your way along narrow ridges  in between the shell holes, many  of which were full of. water  stained very red. The dead were  laying around in heaps, and-not  all Germans either. Our artillery is simply wonderful, and  when Ihey open up in grim earnest with a barrage before the  infantry go oveV it is hard to  imagine how anything could pos-  sibly survive."  "I was doing fine until taken  sick. We had been sleeping in  wet dug-outs and I had been wet  through and hadn't even had my  boots and puttees, off for five  days, I stuck it as long as I could  and tried to shake it off, but I  could not eat anything and after  four days fasting went down all  of a heap.

The steamer Camosun, plying  between Vancouver and Bella  Coola, came in somewhat belated  this week. There were two reasons for this; one, was an exceptional large cargo of freight being handled at different ports of  call en route. The second was  that when the ship touched Vancouver o'n its return from here  last week a strike was on, and  deckhands, firemen, coal passers, all walked ashore. Their  demand was a rise in pay, to  which the operating company  would not agree. However, ye  old marriner, Capt. Brown, had  made up his' mind that the sailing of the ship on the regular  schedule should not be interfered  with for such a small thing as a  crew, and if it had to be done he  would take the Camosun north  all alone. Having made up his *  mind W this and when the cargo  was all on board, from the captain to cook working, the lines  were cast off at Vancouver and  with less than a corporal's guard  of a mongrel crew aboard the  ship wended its way north, picking up... engine-room artificers,  deckhands and freight handlers  as the ship touched at the different ports of call, even with this  the Camosun arrived here appreciably undermanned.

Hon. John-Olivier, minister of]  agriculture, .has authorized the  purchase of S limited number of  stumping machines to bp supplied  to Farmers '-^Institutes on a deferred payment system. This  action on the part of the minister of agriculture is the outcome  of a number of requests.which  have been, received by the department from Farmers' Institutes. In giving the Farmers'Institutes this opportunity to purchase these machines the department assumes absolutely no responsibility and makes no recommendations .regarding the comparative efficiency of the various  types of machines on the mar-  ken. The cFepiity minister and  superintendent of Institutes, Mr.  Wm. B. Scott^K;iiS witnessed several demonstrations and at each  one the results have been satisfactory.  The Department of Agriculture  will supply application forms to  any Farmers' Institute on request. These forms must be  signed  by the president,  vice-  president and directors and also  by five members of the Institute.,  ��������� ���������'..... i .-.'���������"���������  Freight charges on the machines  must be "paid by the Institute  from the factory.

Institutes that fail to make their  payments promptly, will not receive their per capita grant on  account of membership, but this  sum will be dovoted towards the  payments due.   The Department  recommends that all Institutes  securing these machines adopt a  plan whefeby a fixed charged of  so much per diem be paid by  members who use the machine.'  By this  means a fund will  be  provided towards paying the cost  of the machine and, the depreciation in value. ~~~  JEATS  MADE     IN  CANADA  .mtim\  <3lt_LETTS  CLEANS-DISINFECTS���������USED 7DR  SOFTENING WATER���������FOR MAKING  HARD AND SOFT SOAR������������������ ,fy.U,  DIRECTIONS WITH EACH CAN;.

The former head of  the luii&a department makes  the gayest of accusations against th^rime minister when he  alleges;:that Sir Robert Borden,  at the "'urging-of certain other  members of the cabinet, had re-  questedjthe minister, to  pursue  recruiting less vigorously.  That "Sir Sam  has at   least  the courage of  his convictions  was shown   when  he gave the  prime minister day "and" date for  his allegation and offered to prove  it by reading the premier's own  letters to  him on the subject.  According to Sir Sam, the premier feared opposition   to conscription then developing in Toronto and was prepared to sacrifice the country's needs to party  exigencies.  This alleg'ed^attitude  of a few months ago affords a  very interesting' contrast to the  motives professed by the leader  of the government at this time,  when he asserts that the position  of the government in regard to  compulsory service is inspired by  che.highest ideals-of patriotism.  Reading the staternent of Sir Sam  after the recent speech of Sir  Geo, Foster gives the average  Canadian a feeling of suspicion,  not unmixed with alarm.   This  is accentuated by the bald assertion of the fornper minister that  the'inaction of the government,  to which in large part he blames  the alleged failure of the volunteer system, was caused by consideration of the interests of the  profiteering firms who have fattened on the agony of the nation.  This indictment was supplemented by- the  declaration . of the  former .minister   that   all   the  others-members of   the cabinet  were;engaged in assisting in this  work  .by   their meddling,   hin-  drance.and  intereference  with  him and his duties as head of the  militia   department.     Whether  intentional or not this interference was in the interests of the  profiteers; this is the inference  drawn from  the   ex-minister's  statement.  -B  Nl  Make Him  A Good Shot  Teach him with a real, manly  arm, a Remington UMC .22 rifle.

TjELLA 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.  :||___=_]||Caj||c__D||!z  T���������*������������������i���������i r i it i ~_r "  SUBSCRIPTION  RATES OF  BELLA COOLA COURIER.

C.  gJ.(c  HOE  ]������  ; ; BULLET IN HEART.  A bullet moving about freely  in a soldier's heart, causing no  discomfort, was-the unique discovery   of   a   French  surgeon.  After recovering from a wound  received some months previously, the soldier insisted that some  foreign body was present in his  chest, therefore a special X-ray  examination was made. JThis  brought to notice the free shrapnel bullei in the left ventricle of  the heart,, where it was being  swirled about over the entire extent of the cavity at each contraction of the heart. :..'....:_  V       BACK IN "BLIGHTY."  "Here I am back in 'blighty'  again, and am not sorry about it  either. .1 am getting along fine  now and able to jog around a  little, but I had a pretty rough  time of it'in the line and getting  down to Boulogne. The trouble  was pleurisy in the left side.  Howeyer, I've fallen on velvet  alright. This is a beautiful place.  An old country mansion.������- It is  not run by the military and we  get splendidly treated in every  way. The hospital stands in  beautiful grounds and, of course,  we are free to roam all over the  place. I tell #ou Mr. Gibson, I'm  here till .they kick .me out. I  consider myself very lucky to  be sent over here, but they are  keeping the hospitals in .France  as clear as possible.   I was in  France only about ten  weeks;  just joined the battalion in time  to get in on* the Vimy Ridge affair.   That was a;terrible fight,  and the Canadians lost heavily;  but  what   Fritz's   losses   must  have been we have only a vague  idea.    Hundreds of Germans  were buried in their dug-outs.  I shall never forget the-terrible  sights  the   morning   after we  drove Fritz off the ridge.    And  the ridge itself! ��������� It's really true  that there was not a square yard  that was not turned up by shell  fire.   It was a matter of worming your way along narrow ridges  in between theshell holes, many  of which   were   full   of. water  | stained-very red.   The dead were  laying around in heaps, and-not  all Germans either.    Our artillery is simply wonderful,  and  when they open up in grim earnest'with a barrage before the  infantry go over it js hard to  .imagine how anything could possibly survive."  "I was doing fine until taken  sick. We had been sleeping in  wet dug-outs a-nd I had been wet  through and hadn't even had my  boots and puttees off for five  days, I stuck it as long as I could  and tried to shake it off, but I  could not eat anything and after  four days fasting went down all  of a heap.. I saw Ingvaid.Urseth  when we were in rest billets  at a place called Capigny."  The above extracts are from a  letter by Pte. H. L. Harris and  received by Rev. W. H. Gibson.
