Enquiry Will be of  Wide Scope  Montreal, June 11.���������The news  that Lord Mersey, who presided  over the British enquiry into the  loss of the Titanic, is to be a  member of the royal commission  appointed to investigate the Empress of Ireland disaster, was received with satisfaction. As  Lord Mersey was president of  the Titanic court, it is assumed  that he will be similarly honored  when the Empress commission  meets. The Canadian members  of the commission are Chief Justice Ezekiel McLeod of New  Brunswick, and Sir A do 1 ph.  Routhier of Quebec.  The commission will be assisted by two nautical assessors, a  marine engineer and a naval  architect. Appointment to these  positions have notyet been made.  Just when the commission can  begin its work is undetermined.  The enquiry will be of the  widest scope and.the government  will be represented by counsel,  it is announced, as it is probable  there will be discussion of rules  of navigation in Canadian waters  Shamrock IV a  "Nautical Crime"  A Sad Drowning Fatality  Local Youth Meets Untimely End.  Gosport, Eng., June 11.���������The  fourth Shamrock is going to be  either a huge success or a colossal failure, for nothing like her  has ever floated on waves before.  It was not until she was actually  in the water and the mast stepped that one fully realized the  enormity of Nicholson's "crime"  in throwing to the winds all old  ideas of orthodox designers and  turning out a freak racing  machine.  Will this weird craft, ungraceful of line, with curious crushed  in sides, chopped-off stern, stubby bows, and literally squatting  on the surface water, make good?  is the question heard on all sides.  It is significant how many share  Lipton's confidence in Nicholson,  the master builder.    One thing  certain is that the new challenger, which has been variously compared to a skimming dish, champagne  glass, and  old-fashioned  gravy boat, is likely to cause the  defenders many anxious moments  before the final, show-down off  Sandy Hook for its sheer novelty.  A sad fatality which has evoked wide spread sympathy occurred late last Saturday'night  or in the early hours of Sunday  morning, when Martin Schulstad  of Hagensborg, met his death by  drowning. The deceased was  engaged in fishing for the local  cannery and was last seen aboard  his boat at 11:30 p. m. on Saturday, previous to which he had  rowed his boat from the east  side of the wharf to the west  side in order to procure a better  anchorage. This proved to be  the last time he was seen alive,  for about 5 a.m. on Sunday, when  the tide was at its lowest ebb,  his body was discovered on the  beach close to the cannery by  Earl Stoessiger.  On examination by Dr. Bavis,  the resident physician, marks  were found on his head and face  which lead to the assumption  that the unfortunate man fell  overboard from his boat and in  so doing struck his head against  one of the  first members,  was  strongly represented, the representatives paying their last .respects by marching two by two,  after the relatives, to the cemetery and there with uncovered  heads witnessed the interment  of their departed comrade. Many  of the deceased's fellow employees of* the local  cannery  were  also in attendance.    Capt. W. D.  Stephenson, by special request,  spoke appropriately and eloquently at the graveside paying noble  tribute to  the  memory  of the  departed.   H  Casebeer, the freighter  from the upper road camp, came  to town on Wednesday for a load  of supplies. Frank Johnson now  has charge of the work in the  upper portion of the valley. W.  Graham of the Crossing being in  charge of the gang at Firvale.  The painting of the jail is now  practically completed and the  building now presents a very respectable appearance.  Mr. and Mrs. Wm.

'5/  D  .1  Liverpool, June 11.���������In order  "'to provide adequate relief for the  dependents of those lost through  the sinking of the Empress of  Ireland, the sum of $900,000 is  needed, of which $400,000 should  *   be allocated to the families of the  crew.    This is the estimate given  , to the Lord Mayor of Liverpool  ,' by Mr. Duncan Fraser, the actuary connected with the Titanic  fund.  Melbourne, June 11���������The state  of Victoria has been' investigating the transport-of-wheat problem as  the traffic  is assuming  large proportions and   farmers  are finding facilities inadequate.  The state ministry, after having  held an enquiry into the matter,  has decided to appoint Mr. J. P.  Jones of Fort William, Ont., a  member of the Canadian Grain  Commission Board, to report on  the  best methods of  handling  the traffic.     It is felt that the  great experience that Mr. Jones  has had in dealing with similar  problems  in Canada  eminently  fits him for the work the state  government wishes him to carry  out.  S.S. Camosun made her usual  weekly call at this port on Sunday last.  Dr. W. J. Quinlan, the well  known dental-surgeon of Prince  Rupert, is fitting up an office in  the town with the intention of  making this place his headquarters.  Mr. McGregor, representative  of the Mason & Riech Piano Co.,  has been spending the week in  town Qn business.  Mr. O. Schulstad returned on  the last steamer, having been  employed for some time past at  the Beaver Cannery, Schooner  Passage. News of his sad bereavement only reached him on  his arrival here, and much sympathy is felt at the severe shock  which he must have sustained.  i tends to have cleared and to  erect a building on it during the  summer.   . The Board of Trustees of the  Mackenzie School met at the  Grandview Hotel on Tuesday  evening to make up the assessment for the year 1915.  Among the outgoing passengers by the last south-bound  steamer were Messrs. T. Garrett  of Gault Bros., Vancouver, A. J.  Bates of the Ames Holden Mc-  Cready Co., P. J. Sinnott of J.  Thompson & Son, and Dr. Carl  J. Cook of the King Optical Co.  of Vancouver. All reported  business as brisk and left well  pleased with their visit.  L. M. Charlson of Tatla Lake,  spent several days in town, leaving with a pack-train load of  supplies on Tuesday last. Mr.  Charlson has lately taken up a  ranch at the head of Bute Inlet.  Editor,  Bella Coola Courier.  We sincerely wi3h to thank the  people of Bella Coola and of the  Valley for the heart-felt sympathy they haven shown us in our  great sorrow by the loss of our  dear boy, Martin H. Schulstad.  Mr. and Mrs. O. Schulstad  and family.  Hagensborg, B.C., June 10,1914.  With the completion of the 75-  foot span in the Saloomt bridge  all bridge work in the valley is  completed for this year. Foreman Ellison will probably be  ready to leave on the next boat,  when he will proceed to Fort  George to take charge of further  bridge work.  H. D.

Graham of the Crossing  spent last weekend in town. He  reports crop conditions as excellent in his neighborhood.  Spring salmon fishing continues good, the average catch being very satisfactory.  Road work throughout the valley is proceeding steadily, the  different gangs making good progress in their respective sections.  Foreman Draney's gang is employed on the road from the town  to the new Bella Coola River  bridge. This road runs through  the Indian reserve and was first  . opened up by private individuals  at the expense of considerable  time and money. For years this  road has been a great convenience to both white people and  Iiidians, but with the exception  of some $250 appropriated by the  Indian Department of the Dominion Government no government money has been expended  on it. Since, however, the Provincial government has built the  new bridge, it has become necessary for them to take over this  road and much needed improvement will be done to it this sum-  Trout fishing is one of the  main pastimes of those who are  fortunate enough to have leisure  moments, and several good catches have been made in the Necleetsconnay River which flows  through the town.  Mr. A. C. Christensen who has  been on a brief visit to Takush  Harbor where he has property,  returned to town on Thursday  evening.     The power-boat Kiltik came up  from Namu on Thursday, returning the next morning. This  powerful and fast craft is engaged in running between Rivers  Inlet and Kimsquit with fish.  The draw for Mrs. f. S. Robinson's  piano takes place at the Grandview  Hotel on Saturday 27th, in the evening,  followed by a dance. Ticket holders  are invited lo attend.  mer.

The funeral was attended by  a large number of people from  all parts of the valley, including  numbers of the deceased's fellow  fishermen, who assembled to pay  their last respects to an exceedingly popular young man. The  service in the Augsborg church  was conducted by the Rev. Hans  Sageng and at the graveside an  appropriate address was delivered by Capt. Wm. Stephenson.  The deceased who was only  twenty-two years of age was  very highly respected throughout the whole valley.  Mr. and Mrs. O. Shulstad, the  parents of the deceased, are  among the oldest settlers in the  valley, and heartfelt sympathy  with them and their family in  their sad bereavement is expressed throughout the whole  district.           * (FltOM OUK SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT)  Hagensborg���������The funeral of  Martin Henry Schulstad, who  came to his death by drowning,  took place at the Augsburg cemetery on Tuesday last*.  A large number of friends and  neighbors of the bereaved family  gathered at the residence of Mr.  and Mrs. O. Schulstad, parents  of the deceased, at 11:30 a.m.  After a short devotional exercise  at the house the gathering proceeded to the church, where service was conducted, by Rev. H.  Sageng. So large was the gathering that the seating capacity  of the church could not accomodate more than one half.  The procession from the church  to the cemetery was very lengthy.

Abandoning the old-fashioned  system where many men were  engaged and where conditions  were not entirely sanitary, many  canneries have already installed  the new Sanitary Can System,  which besides allowing of great  speed ensures absolute cleanliness, and minimizes the possibility  of deterioration o f the contents of  the can by exposure to the air  through a leakage in an improperly made can.  The large and up-to-date cannery at Namu, belonging to the  Drayney's Fisheries Ltd., has the  Sanitary Can System and by its  use turned out on Saturday last  no fewer than 100,216 sanitary  cans.   The saw mill is running full  blast in order to cope with the  demands, and altogether Namu  is a hive of industry at present.

The stories of the survivors of  the awful wreck of, the Empress  of Ireland are replete, with in-  ".   stances of real heroism and self-  sacrifice.  . While-the world stands aghast  at thea wfulness of the disaster,  it is one consolation to know that  the heroic traditions of British  seamen were in no^way violated.  The .story of Salvation Army  Commissioner Rees, who refused  to be saved so long as women  were on board. Thecstory of Sir  Henry! Seton Kerr, th^e world-  renowned big game' hunter, and  of Captain Kendal, taken unconscious from the waters and afterwards, leading gallantly in the  rescue work. These are but instances.   We honor the memory  of the' brave men and women  t  who did their duty without wincing. Of such fibre are the world's  elect..  o    o    o    o    o  Another Plank.  "To actively assist 'by State  aid in the development of the  agricultural resources of the  Province.'. So reads part of  Clause 1 of the provincial platform of the Conservative party.  Our representatives have gone  to Victoria year after year, pledged to carry out this plank in  their platform. Only when the  condition throughout the province in regard to agriculture has  become actually alarming are  they roused to actiori.  After some twelve years, during which time they have allowed  the best of our accessable agricultural land to pass into the  hands of speculators by methods  which have since been described  as fraudulent, they appoint a  royal commission to ascertain  the reason of the decadence in  the agricultural industry. These  royal commissioners travelled  Europe and the Antipodes in an  effort to find out what was  wrong with the agricultural industry in their own home province. 'i������ They succeeded in getting  information regarding agriculture in other countries, all of  which might have been obtained  at the expense of a few postage  stamps, if not actually obtainable  at the provincial library in our  own parliament buildings.  ���������  At this late date we read of a  member of the provincial parliament telling his constituents  that there is in this province an  area of from 90,000,000 to 100.-  000,000 acres of land available  for agriculture of "some kind or  another," and of this huge area  only 5,500,000 acres, or only two  per cent, has passed to "purchasers."  There figures are wrong and  Mr. W. W. Foster who used them  must know that they are wrong.  We have only to refer to the government statistician, Mr. R. E.  Gosnell, the gentleman who  wrote the famous budget speech  which appeared in the columns  of a government organ, but was  never delivered by the Minister  of Finance: Mr.' Gosnell's estimate is 16,000,000 acres, out of  which, according to Mr. Foster,  a little over thirty-three and one  third per cent has passed to the  '.'purchaser," > which word- Mr.  Foster tactfully substitutes for  the harder sounding term '.'speculator."  It is well known that the land  controlled by the speculator comprises practically all of the best  and most accessible land in the  province.  The" Conservative platform was  well greased and acted splendidly as a toboggan slide to power.  The people were led to believe  that, the various pledges would  be redeemed. How little such  hopes have been realized,-it is  hardly necessary to point out.  When did the McBride'government ever attempt to assist by  State aid in the development of  the'agricultural resources of the  province ? They have had twelve  years during which to adopt a  line of action. The only line of  action which has been followed  at all consistently is that of selling our best land to speculators  and spending the money received  from such sales unwisely and  extravagantly.  . o     o     o     o     o  Nearly $66,000 Per Day.  In October next the Borden  government will have been three  years in office, and in those three  years will have given to Mackenzie and Mann the huge amount  of $71,965,000, practically $2,000,-  000 for every month since the  Ministry gained power.  In October next, thanks to Mr.  Borden, his colleagues, and his  obedierit, majority, Mackenzie  and Mann will have received  from the people of Canada, either  in cash or on the credit of the  country, nearly $66,000 for every  twenty-four hours of the last  three years.  The last dab of $45,000,000 is  handed over by Mr. Borden in  order to save the Western provinces from the consequences of  their rash policies.   .  o     o     o     o     o ,  The promoters of the Canadian  Pacific railway proved their faith  in  their project by putting up  their own money as far as they  were able, ���������;������������������'/  Mackenzie and Mann.are multimillionaires.

P., they have  assets amounting to at least $50,-  000,000, but they have not put  one cent of their own money into  the Canadian Northern, and yet  they are allowed to have control  of the stock.  Mr. F. F. Pardee, the chief  Liberal whip, describes this aspect of the situation as ' 'an absolute breach of faith on the  part of this Government, and in  permitting it they (the Ministers)  are not standing by the interests  of the people."

"That," answered the guide,  "is an engine boiler."  She was an up-to-date young  lady and at once became interested. "And why do they boil  engines?" she inquired.  "To make the engine tender,"  politely replied the resourceful  guide.���������Pennsylvania Punch.  Some women are born shapely  and some others need expert  dressmakers.

Do not ask the people of  Canada to get in and assume the  whole load, which is almost too  heavy to bear now, while you,  Mackenzie and Mann, keep out  and save your own hides."  But the Borden Government  and its supporters stand fast in  loyalty to Mackenzie and Mann.  The multi-millionaires will get  more millions and the people pay  the piper.  The way of the grafter in the  old country is hard. High military rank has not saved an officer  of thirty-eight years standing  from six months in the peneten-  tiary. His offence was trivial  compared with the methods by  which not a few political partisans have become rich in Canada.  But, in this country, by a man's  ability to get away with graft is  his standing in the community  frequently gauged.

One of the astonishing things  about the Panama-Pacific Exposition is that the largest display  by any foreign country will be  by the oldest in continuous his- ,  tory and youngest in civilization.  China will shame the rest of the  world with her exhibit at San  Francisco, for which she has  appropriated $1,500,000, and  asked for half as much floor  space again as could be spared  her. And the showing of old  and new China, linking ancient  art with modern progress, is  1 ike"iy"t"bH5eTfi_ mosTHJiHuresque  and instructive of all at the fair.

For  instance -"  Picking up a jar of chemicals  of vile odor, he stuck one finger  into it and then into his mouth.  "Taste it, gentlemen," he commanded, as he passed the vessel  from student to student.  After each one licked his finger  and had felt rebellion through  his whole soul, the old professor  exclaimed triumphantly:  "I tol' ye so. Ye dinna use  your faculties.
