McDiarmid, B.A., who  has charge of the party is, an  astronomer of considerable experience, having conducted similar work for the Dominion  Government on various occasions.  The party has already visited  Moricetown, near Hazelton, and  Bamfield, Vancouver Island, and  on completing observations at  this place will proceed via Prince  Rupert and Hazelton to Ground  Hog mountain.

"~     ~ duced Next Session  Landowners Decide to Help���������Saw Mill, Sash,  Door and Box Factory to Be Operated  Alaskan Volcano Active  Seward, Alaska, "June 11.���������  Another volcano is in action today, the fumes spreading over  the country. There is, however,  no anticipation of any serious  eruption.  A meeting was held in the  Farmers' Institute Hall, Hagens-  bor, on Wednesday last, when a  large number of landowners asr  sembled to discuss the matter of  dividing up their surplus land into five and ten acre plots.  Mr. B. Brynildsen was elected  to the chair, with Rev. H. Sageng as secretary.  After the chairman had briefly  outlined the object of the meeting, the matter was, fully discussed, several of the landowners introducing important  points which are likely to arise  during the organization of the  proposed company.  The amount and character of  land, amount of timber and price  of same were questions that required consideration, while a saw  certainly deserve.  Numbers of the landowners  expressed their willingness to  dispose of some of their land at  a reasonably low figure, providing that the proposed company  undertake to start some industry  in the Valley such as those above  mentioned.  The above sentiment was expressed in the following resolution which .was unanimously  passed by the meeting:  "Resolved that it is. the sense  of this meeting from the expressions uttered, that there are  a number of landowners here in  Bella Coola who will be willing  to sell their land at reasonable  prices to any company that will  give assurance of the building of  a railroad, and  the starting of  Panama Canal  Nearing Completion  Vancouver, June 11.- Mr. II.

Cancer Can Be Cured  Says German Professor  Cologne, Germany, June 11.���������  Cancer has been proved to be a  contagious disease, caused by a  parasite, and it can be healed,  according to Dr. Otto Schmidt,  a cancer expert, who claims to  have produced a vaccine with  which he has cured numerous  cases of this dread disease. The  serum, it is said, is taken from  animals.  .HohMThomas Taylor Goes to  1 _#Wl  England  jcouver, June 14. ��������� Hon.  is Taylor, ministef- rif piib-  ||vorks, has left for the old  itry.

Father Bernard  Vaughan,   addressing  the  Catholic Women's League on the  subject of the freak dances, said:  "There is not much need of my  expressing any view about those  dances which of recent date have  been imported from the Zoological gardens into London drawing  rooms.    Their very animal names  imply their animal nature.    Not  even the negro and the negress  think of breaking into such performances   except    when   they  are drunk."  Goverment to Construct  Chain of Elevators  Ottawa, June 11. ��������� The Dominion government will erect  two large storage grain elevators  in the interior, to have from  three to four million bushels capacity, and which will cost $1,  000,000 each. These will be located at Moose Jaw and Saskatoon, and another will likely be  built at Calgary.  Also a big transfer elevator  will be located on the Pacific  Coast, which will be owned and  operated by the government in  order to handle the grain business,  which  it is expected will  East Experiences Extraordinary Weather  Montreal, June 11.��������� Several  inches of snow fell today, the  temperature falling to thirty-  five degrees.  Quebec and the Maritine Provinces are experiencing the most  extraordinary weather ever  known at this time of the year.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  S. S. Princess Beatrice arrived  on Saturday last with a heavy  consignment of freight for the  Cannery and the several local  merchants.  The passenger list for this port  included Mr. and Mrs. H. Hewitt,  Messrs J. James, T. Jones, F. A.  McDiarmid, A. J. Tennant, A.  Beddoes, R. and G. Drayney.  F. A. Johnson visited town last  weekend, returning with a heavy  load of provisions for the road-  gang in the Upper Valley.  New York, June 11. ���������The cold-  weather ever recorded in the  New England States for this  time of the year is being experienced today.  Lloyd-George Cancels  Trip to Dominion  London, June 11.���������Because he  will be "too busy at the time,"  Chancellor David Lloyd-George  has cancelled his proposed whirlwind tour of Canada in September. It had been planned Lloyd-  George to make twelve speeches  in Canada and the United States.  RIFLES FOR BELFAST   .  Belfast, Ireland, June 11 One  thousand rifles with bayonets arrived  here  on a steamer  from  The "Queen City," due on Friday last, evidently gave this port  the go-bye,'but better things are  expected from the Company this  week.        ___________  E. Gillenspitz is in charge of  the work of clearing the trail  from Stewic through to the Mc-  Clinchy ranch. Having completed this work they will give their  attention to the Anaham Lake  trail.    Walter Ratcliff who has a ranch  on the Stillwater, close to Atnarko, was in town last week. Mr.  Ratcliff expressed his intention  of shortly engaging in Mink-  farming, which he says can be  made very profitable in the locality in which he resides.  flow west when the Panama Canal  Manchester   in    cases    marked  is opened.

"electrical fittings."   Detectives  promptly seized them. ^  Goverment officials say they  are fully informed on the plans  of the Orange clubs to resist  Home Rule. This action of the  authorities was the first interference with the importation of  arms.  Mr. E. Whitehead has rented  the farm lately occupied by E.  Oein, close to the Crossing. Mr.  Whitehead gets a good farm but  the town loses an excellent cobbler.   Messrs W. and H. Sutherland  were in town for the week-end |  but  returned   to   their  summer!  home at Batchelor Bay on Mon- j  clay last. J  Fishery officer John  Widsten !  i  has   been    visiting    the   upper'  reaches of the Bella Coola River, j  i  for the purpose of inspecting the  work of clearing out some log  jams done by Walter Radclift'e  this spring.  Mr. Widsten is expected to return this week; in the meantime  his duties on the salt water are  being ably attended to by assistant officer O. Oveson.  Miss Addie Gibson, who sustained somewhat serious injuries  by falling off her horse on May  23, made her reappearance on  Wednesday last, receiving many  congratulations on her complete  recovery.'^   Road foreman Svisdahl and his  gang who have been engaged in  the vicinity of Hagensborg, have  been moved to above the Crossing, a locality that certainly  needs the attention of a road  gang.           S.S. Coquitlam called here on  Wednesday with considerable  freight for the cannery, besides  a consignment of powder which  she landed at the government  wharf.  A meeting of the Church building committee was held at Mr.  Fougner's house on Tuesday  last, when several proposals were  drafted and submitted to a meeting of the people on Thursday  evening. It was decided to adjourn this meeting until 8 p. m.  Monday next, when the various  proposals will be considered and  a program definitely decided on.

Commenting.on the rejection  of Hon, Mr. Borden's naval bill  by the senators, London Truth  says: "On its merits, Canada's  Senate is perfectly right in the  attitude it has taken up. Whatever may have been the German  scare,' it is now exploded, and  Great Britain would be relieved  if Canada would go back to farming instead of planting the maintenance of seven millions of  pounds worth of battleships on  our estimates."  British Columbia's  Liberal Leader  The selection of Mr. H'. - C.  Brewster as leader of "the Liberal  party will meet with the unqualified approval of every Liberal in  the province.  There is not a man in the public life of British Columbia today,  who ranks higher in the esteem  of the people than Mr. Brewster.  Although, still comparatively  a young man, he has had considerable experience, and. as a  member of the. Provincial Legislature has shown unusual ability  as a debater; his indefatigable  'courage and skill marking him  as a person fully worthy and capable of holding the responsible  position to which he has been  elected.  We heartily endorse the sentiments already expressed, that  the Liberal convention honored  the party and did a signal service  to the province when it unanimously selected Mr. Brewster  as leader.  o     ������     o . ������     o  NOT SO  Senator Lougheed in opening  the debate on the Naval Bill is  reported as saying that its main  principles had been endorsed by  the people at the last general  election.  The emergency has never been  apparent except in the minds of  some alarmists, whose baseless  fears have long been allayed by  the repeated assurances of the  Admiralty that all is well.  That the Borden naval policy  was endorsed by the people at  the last general election is both  false and misleading. Certainly  the issue in the West was that of  reciprocity, and we heard nothing  of the Borden policy of contribution for the simple reason that  it had not then been formulated.  True, in Quebec the Laurier  naval policy was introduced on  the hustlings, but it was only by  pledging themselves to oppose  any measure of naval aid to  Great Britain that the Nationalists carried their seats.  Then came the unholy alliance  with Mr. Borden which, while  ensuring a government majority,  tempted these Nationalists to  betray their constituents in the  most shameless manner.  RATHER CREDITABLE  - For some time past fault has  been found with the early settlers who first colonized Bella  Coola Valley, some twenty years  ago, for not allowing liquor to be  sold within the settlement.  . That a community should exist  for so long a time without a  licensed saloon has been described  as evidence of a lack of energy  and ambition, and as a reflection  on the people as being antiquated  in their ideas.  Great stress is laid on the  claim that the establishment of  a saloon-for the selling of liquor  is a sign of up-to-date progress  and prosperity.  Knowing full, well that.we are  invoking the wrath of a certain  section of the community the  "Courier" is inclined to think  that the keeping out of the saloon  for so many years redounds to  the credit of the sturdy pioneer  rather than to his discredit, and  we are also inclined to the belief that the community of Bella  Coola compares favorably with  others of its size and age; prosperity with peace and plenty being distinctly visible throughout  the whole of the Valley:  Conservative party to have its  policies dictated by the Nationalist party born under such auspices.  o     o     o     o     o     _  Now the property men and  stage setters have arranged that  "Rule Britannia" shall be sung  when the. great Sir Richard appears before the footlights. Why  npt go a step further and make  it "God Save the King," or a  little further yet, "Praise God  From Whom All Blessings Flow."  The grand finale in apotheosis  n\ust come some day. ,  No fear of the Borden government reforming the Senate.  There are two things in the  world that will not mix, - They  are Toryism and reform. The  one particular curse of the former  is the latter.  Mr. Bourassa has stated that  the Nationalist party owed its  origin to the position taken by  Laurier in sending Canadian  troops to assist Great Britain in  the South African war. It must  "be a proud position for the jingo-  H. S. Clements, M.P., has secured an appropriation, for a  post office building in New Hazelton of $7000.  Bella Coola is waiting for a  new government building,' we  understood, that Mr. Clements  was to have it constructed at  once. The building in New Hazelton is on "Kelly" street. Bella  Coola has no street by that name  hence the delay.  OOOOO  The famous roller, which was  paid so much attention to by the  Provincial legislature during last  session, has now been hauled out  into the woods, soon to be covered  with the heavy growth of vegetation so prevalent throughout the  Valley.  Fifty years from now.it will  probably be stumbled onto by  some ardent hunter in search of  signs of the extinct species of  Kef-mode's white bear.  The roller was an eye sore to  the people whose money paid for  it, it rendered no service, to the  community and is wept over by  no one.  The time may arrive when the  future municipality of Bella Coola  will send it to the provincial  museum as a relic of by-gone  days, but in the meantime the  road roller is resting in peace.  ��������� A considerable amount of road  machinery has arrived and can  be seen strewn all over the wharf.  Providence and the Road Boss  probably know what to do with  it, but we certainly don't.  It only reminds us of the saying���������"a five dollar hat on a fifty  cent head."  Is it not about time that the  road through the Valley was surveyed, so that people could know  where it was intended to go?  Of course should this happen  there would be an end to the  Road Boss' favorite pastime of  "kinklocating."  ������    o     o     o    o  A notice of application is being  made for a license to sell liquor  by retail in and upon the premises  known as the Bella Coola Hotel.  OOOOO  The "Courier" does not care to  give the lot number and name of  publication in which the notice  is to be found for fear people  may think that we are after the  job of printing it.  There is no building known as  the Bella Coola Hotel, nor any  attempt being made to construct  one, nor any signs of clearing the  lot, yet some people will insist  that it be so.  OOOOO  :. A great many people tell us  that the saloon is a good thing  for Bella Coola.. It will stimulate business all along-the line  of the scriptural injunction���������  "Bear ye one another's burdens."  The Courier's motto, "The welfare, of the public is the first  law," is still at the masthead,  there to remain.  ooooo  The question is being asked  "why is the road not surveyed  through the Valley so that the  ranchers whose land will be affected might know where it is  intended to go?"  This is one of the many questions regarding local affairs that  we cannot answer.  It is professedly the intention  of the Government to t:ontinue  the road through to the Interior.  Why then, we ask, does not  the Road Boss have the route located and surveyed through to  the Interior and so determine the  course of the road for all time?  Had this been done years ago,  how much money would have  been saved that is at present  being spent ' 'kinklocating."  In parts of the Upper Valley  can be seen three or. four attempts at a road, each having  been used for a time and then  abandoned in favor of a new  route.  Stretches of the road at this  end were ditched and gravelled  last year only to be abandoned  this year, it being found that the  road in these particular sections  (Continued on next page, col. 1.)

VICTORIA, B. C.  In the beginning the California rancher hailed the advent of  the Japanese laborer joyously.  He was by no means ideal; he  was hired principally in gangs  and through a boss; he was tricky,  grasping, and unscrupulous about  keeping contracts; but he'filled  a gap created by the gradual decrease of the Chinese since the  exclusion act, and he was the  best available until the hoped-for  influx of agricultural labor from  Europe should come by way of  f the Isthmus Canal.  Besides all of which the Jap  is peculiarly adept at "squat"  labor. Because of that the berry  crop of California is almost entirely in his hands.  In some situations, too, he has  worked successfully where the  white man could not work at all.  For instance, in the delta of  San Soaquin and Sacramento  Rivers, where the white man  could not compete with unhealthy  nature, the Japanese came in,  survived year after year, raised a  better potato than the white man  could raise, graded it better,  sold it better, and has all but  taken entire possession of the  land.  The leading producer in this  whole district is a Japanese,  George Shima, who is sometimes  called the potato king. He is  said to be worth a half million  dollars and is assessed in "the  San Joaquin Valley for $141,680.  Yet the use of fuel oil by  steamers, with its consequent  wastage from passing boats and  seepage into the tule grasses,  has killed out the mosquito to  such an.extent that it is claimed  in a very few years more the  delta will be comfortably habitable' for white men, and they  will be prepared to go back and  contend with the Japs for a place  upon this soil of Egyptian richness.���������Colliers.

HAGAN, Proprietor  stor       1  THE AMERICA CUP .  It is impossible.to. blame the  public, interested in sport, in  showing indifference to negotiations in regard to future contests  for the America cup. The New  York Yacht club seems determined to insist on such conditions  in any competition with English  boats as will render hopeless all  attempts on the part of challengers. However genuine, too,  Sir Thomas Lipton's desire may  be to capture the trophy, the  general view will be that the advertisement he obtains for his  commodities, from engaging in  these contests, more than repays  him for the monetary outlay.  Popular interest in the ultimate  destiny , of the America cup,  which has already diminished,  is almost certain to disappear  entirely.  The last real contest, from the  point of view of the good sportsman, was when Lord Dun raven  entered his yacht and, in spite of  every impediment thrown in his  way, really won the race. Had  there been any fairness displayed  at that time the cup would then  have gone back across the Atlantic and the contests of today  would be conducted in Great  Britain on a true sporting basis.  Lord Dunraven had nothing to  advertise and cared for nothing j again, to take par!, in ai  but the. satisfaction of beating [national event of tin's k\r  King Gee  T      Cr  the Americans on their .own  ground, and that he really did so  there is now no question.  Sir Thomas Lipton's challenges  have, in the past, aroused some  public interest. But this continent is a great customer for  such articles as he has to sell and  ���������*���������_-.  readily be justified by lb./r.  gers of the great coimm..._  poration  of  which  Sir Tri  Lipton  is  the  head.
