On the left bank of the  lower San   our  troops,   after a  powerful advance on June 2nd,  finally pierced the enemys line  and captured an important position which the enemy had fortified in the region of Rounyick;  we captured about 4000 prisoners,  some guns and numerous machine  guns.   Our offensive on the whole  front as far as the mouth of the  Wisloka   continues   to   develop  successfully.    As Przemysl,   in  view of the state of its artillery  and its works which   were destroyed by the Austrians before  they surrendered, was regarded  as incapable of being defended  its maintenance in our hands only-  served  our  purpose  until, such  time as our positions to the northwest \vere strengthened, but the  enemy having captured Jaroslau  and  Radymo  began   to spread  along the right bank of the San  and our positions became unten-  ableowing to the concentrated fire  of the enemy's numerous guns.

On  the Bsura, Tuesday, the enemy  sent out a great cloud of gas  which at first reached the river  but owing to the change in the  wind was carried back into the  enemy's trenches, compelling  a large number of Germans to  leave their trenches. , Our fire  decimated them as they fled."     i  An Appeal for  More Munitions  Germans Superiority of Shot and Shell  Manchester,  Eng.,  June 4.���������  Declaring that the German victory   in   Galicia was  due to an  overwhelming    superiority    i n  equipment and that if the Allies  in the  west  had   been   as  well  equipped the Germans would long  ago have been driven from France  and Belgium, Mr. Lloyd George  made a stirring appeal to employers and workmen for more munitions and said:  ;  "I come here to tell the truth,  our Russian allies have suffered  a severe  set   back.     The  Germans have achieved a great success, not because of the superior  valor of their soldiers or strategists.    The German  triumph is  due entirely to overwhelming superiority of shot and shell, munitions and equipment.    It was  a battle won   by the use they  made of their skilled industries  and especially   by  the  superior  organization  of  German   workshops."  Mr. H.

He  thought so well of the Courier  that he subscribed for it.  Arthur D. Hallett of Namu,  came up to celebrate Empire Day  with us and prolonged his stay  until the following Sunday.  The weather conditions in Bella Coola this season have been  the most favorable to the growth  of vegetation since the valley  was settled by white people.  In the absence of Rev. T. C.  Colwell who is making a longer  stay at the ministerial meetings  at New Westminster than expected, Capt. W. D. Stephenson  of Noosatsum, officiated at the  services held at the Mackenzie  schoolhouse last Sunday evening.  There was a large number of  people in attendance.  Our suspicions concerning Rev.  H. Sageng's intentions prove to  have been well founded. We  learn from reliable sources that  he, on the Saturday following  his departure from Bella Coola,  was married at Vancouver to  Miss Mathilde Waal, late of  Poulsbo, Wash. The Courier  offers congraulations.  Mr. J. Grummett is well again  and at his former business of village blacksmith. He has bought  out his erstwhile successor Mr.  J. S. Robinson who, with Mr. F.  Robinson, have left for the interior.  The executive of the Bella  Coola Liberal Association held a  meeting at the home of Mr. B.  F. Jacobsen last Tuesday, to arrange a few matters preparatory  for a possible early Provincial  election. Nothing transacted at  this meeting has been given out  for publication, but the Liberal  party in Bella Coola and the lower part of the riding of Prince  Rupert is in a very good shape  for the coming electiont whenever it may take place.  Mr. Thorwald E. Jacobsen was  elected secretary-treasurer in  place of Hubert L. Harris, who  resigned on leaving for Kimsquit.  Mr. B. Brynildsen, president  of the local association, will leave  for Victoria in a few days and  will there confer with the Provincial leaders on many things  affecting this section of the coast.  <?

Education in Farming.  \  Much, has been said and done  daring the last few years in regard to the teaching of agricul-  ture in the-public schools. In  spite of this the farmer remains  the same and he farms in much  the same old way. The present  way of teaching farming in the  few and rather'inaccessible places  where it is done, is to begin with  the theories arid underlying principles and work up tp their practical application.  This may be a' very logical and  scientific way,; but it is not practical.    -The best way to teach  boys who have neither the time.  nor inclination to learn the con-j  stituents of the different^ferti-  lizers,  the  theories concerning  all the chemical changes and action of bacteria, etc., is to apply  the   scientific  knowledge   in a  practical way.-  It is the results  they want to know and results  will appeal to their minds in a  way to interest'them.- After they  have seen the practical results  of up-to-date farming, then teach  them the theories if'their time  an d capabilities permit.  The ordinary branches of farming should be taught in all  country schools, and opportunity  . given to all boys of suitable ages  to learn actual farming in the  field, in the stable and -poultry  yard. In every community there  should be a regular farm owned  by the Government or any other  ' politic body having the education  of therising generation in charge.  At this farm, _tll the boys in the  confines of the district should be  taught practical farming by an  expert thoroughly conversant  With the theoretical and practical sides of it.  In our last issue we published  an article on co-operation among  farmers and  how  the Government through: its officials could  make this move workable.    We  suggested that in view of the  manner the United  States  Department   of Agriculture  have  demonstrated the practical working of this plan that the Farmers  Institutes shoiild discuss it and  recommend its adoption by the  Government.    In the same manner we invite discussion of the  plan proposed above, that practical, in preference of theoretical,  farming be taught in all country  schools.  The farmer has a duty to per-  "Rocking the Boat."  Dr. W. J. Quinlan in his speech  at the 24th of May celebration at  Bella Coola referred somewhat  sarcastically of the misguided  people who attacked the property  of resident citizens because they  were of German birth or descent.  And it seemed that his audience  shared his views in this respect.  But upon the receipt of our mail  this week we are considerably  surprised that the staunch, reputable Conservative* Journal  "The Week" of Victoria, makes  a vehement attack upon the  Federal Government for its indifference and inactivity or sluggishness to take energetic measures against the Germans and  Austrians residing in the Province, and thereupon defends the  recent riots that took, place in  Victoria. We are afraid that  someone who knows our Liberal  proclivities may think we exaggerate if we use our own language  in commenting upon the nature  of the article referred to and we  therefore.publish part of it:  "If   all    'alien enemies' are  not promptly interned; if an investigation is not started at once  to determine the truth or otherwise of charges that are being  voiced in every direction against  naturalized Canadians of German  birth, if the properly appointed  officers of the Militia Department  are not clothed with  authority  and furnished with'funds so that  they   can  do their   duty,   then  The Week promises the Department that.there  will  be other  manifestations of a more serious  character than those which all  Victorians deplore.   Many of our  leading citizens are banded together for this purpose.    If the  Government will not listen  to  the voice of reason, it will have  to yield to force.' One of Victoria's leading citizens, and easily  the most influential of them all,  told the Editop- of   The Week  yesterday, that, if he had,.been  the movement, and that he would  be on hand the next time. If  the Department thinks that The  Week has overstated the case,  let it send one of its officers to  demand proof of all that has  been alleged and they will be  furnished."  The Federal Government at  Ottawa is far removed from Victoria and is at present handling  matters of such a magnitude  that the difficulties and troubles  of the Victorians seem trifling in  comparison, and is therefore not  adequately impressed with the  gravity of the situation. " The  Government very likely feels that  cur friends in the capital city of  British Columbia are unduly  alarmed over any acts the obnoxious "alien enemies" may  commit. That,'-considering Germany's effacement as an element  in naval warfare in the Pacific  waters, and its- utter isolation  from its friends in our Province,  its means of co-operation with  them are reduced to a negligible  quantity. Our advice to the  Victorians is "Don't rock the  boat." Refrain from all acts of  violence and cultivate patience.  Germany's Aim.  The British Empire is engaged  in this war for the purpose of  protecting the weak, and to uphold her honor in standing by her  guarantee to protect the neutrality of Belgium. If there ever was  a just and disinterested war this  is one, .as far as England is concerned. And in the firm reliance  of the-righteousness of her cause  she will, with her Allies, press  *_  on to final victory.  There is a great difference of  opinion in many circles why Germany-and Austria began this  disastrous conflict. Among the  many theories advanced and  which seem the most reasonable  is one by a Russian prince, who  for a great number of years has  been a political exile and during  which has made his residence in  in Victoria he would have headed | Switzerland./   Ge'rmany had no  need to fear iny encroachment  upon her territory by any other  power, she was as free as Albion  to navigate theseas in the pursuit  of commerce, there was apparently no wforce used to hamper  her developments along peaceful  lines. Then why should she be  the aggressor in a war which she  knew would be very costly and  widespread in its calamity? In  view of its unexampled horror it  might be said ;in extenuation of  Germany's cruel action; that she  expected to crush France before  Russia got fairly started, and  then she could thrash Russia  in less than a year: This she  would have done if events had  turned out according to the plans.  How terribly Germany was disappointed in ahis respect is a  story that is well known. A  German living in the State, of  Washington upon being asked by  the writer what he considered  was the cause of the war unhesitatingly answered "English  jealously." Hej like the rest of  the German people is misled and  deceived by the blind leaders of  Germany. According to the  opinion of the Russian prince  mentioned and who is in an exceptional position to'know, it was  Germany's jealousy of England,  and her desire for a "place in the  sun-' that were the main causes  CHICK STARTER  CHICK FOOD  For Results Use���������  Standard''  CHICK DEVELOPER  SCRATCH FOOD  SOLD BY LEADING DEALERS  '���������."��������� AND BY  ALBERTA  PACIFIC  GRAIN  COMPANY LTD  VANCOUVER,   B.C.  Standard''���������We stand back of every sack  for her action;.  In order to; further her ambition and to enlarge her markets  it was Germany's aim to become,  if possible, the greatest of colonial powers, and she expected to  attain to this goal by crushing  France and thus secure her extensive possessions in Africa and  elsewhere, trample upon Belgium  and secure Congo.   Subdue Holland and take Borneo and Java,  and   establish    herself   at   the  Straits of Sumatra.    At the same  time by giving Russia a sound  thrashing, make Austria dominant  on   the Balkan  Peninsula,  strengthen her own position in  Asia Minor and  reach out for  Persia and the gulf.    By keeping peace'with  England  for a  few more years she could keep  on strengthening her navy, and  when she thought herself equal  to the task pick a quarrel with  England and of course treat her  as she in this war intended to  treat France, Belgium and Hol-  Gault Brothers Limited  '        AVHOLESALE "DRY GOODS  361 Water Street        Vancouver, B.C.  <i   Gault Brothers for over 60 years have successfully  maintained wholesale Warehouses throughout Canada  <$  The Vancouver stock is the largest and best assorle J  stocl^ on the Coast, in some cases ihe best West of Toronto  STAPLES  SMALL WARES  R1BBONS  Ready-to-Wear  MEN'S FURNISHINGS  House Furnishings  Carpets  LINENS  DRESS GOODS  MAIL ORDERS EXECUTED THE DAY RECEIVED  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co.

In the course of a lengthy defense of the provincial government occasioned by an article in  the Toronto Globe the Victoria  Colonist makes this characteristic observation relative to the  railway policy:  "We assert without fear of  successful contradiction that if  the provincial government were  forced to foreclose upon its rr.t.i-  gages covering the railway roc.  tioned it could sell them toother  railways for an amount'sufficier.  to cover the guarantees."  We do not know if this ab.ur.  opinion is shared by the government. If it is, we can understand how Sir Richard McBri..  and his colleagues have come so  make such a fearful mess of their  railway polic3r and other undertakings. If there is one thing  certain in this world, it is that  "other railways" would not accommodate the province by tal  ing off  its  hands   for the k  Order  that  pound  of BRAID'S BEST  Tea now.

Neither of the railroads heavily  subsidized by the taxpayers of  the province has been completed  and probably neither will be completed unless the government of  Canada or the provincial government-digs up additional guarantees. The Canadian Northern  Company is admittedly bankrupt  with contractors' attachments  for millions clinging to it. The  finances of the Pacific Great  Eastern precipitated a cabinet  crisis over James Bay. If we  are not paying the interest guaranteed by us now, we soon will  have to do and that will be a sum  amounting approximately to half  the revenue of the province.  The railway policy of the provincial government has been a  calamitous fiasco, and if the  morning paper had any sense of  responsibility it. would recognize  the fact. It has imposed onus  a burden greater than ever was  assumed by any other state or  province in the history of railroad construction. It was conceived by politicians and defended by journalists with very limited business acumen or foresight.  ���������Victoria Times.

Doctor Sarolea, an eminent  Belgian, addressed four hundred  members of the Vancouver Canadian Club on the 27th ulto. The  entire audience stood to attention  while the Belgian National Anthem was played, and then greeted the doctor with three cheers.  He spoke in part as follows:  "You may think the worst i_  over for Belgium, but it is not.  The worst is still to come foi  Belgium. When the armies oi  the Allies will drive the Germans  out of France, as they certainly  will before long, the Allies will  drive them back into Belgium  and, until the end, Belgium will  probably remain the main theatre  of operations. The Allies can  only get at the Germans by passing over the prostrate body of  Belgium. Most of the work of  destruction will "have to be done  by ourselves, and I can assure  you that the Belgians will spare  no effort to destroy their own  cities if, by so doing, they can  get rid of the unspeakable Huns.  "We hope that a-greater and  nobler Belgium will emerge. Per  a hundred years Britishers have  visited the scenes of Waterloo,  and in a hundred years from now  Canadians will make pilgi images  to Belgium and France to worship  the spot where Canadian heroes  died with their Belgian brothers  in the cause of liberty and civilization."  The doctor went on to show-  that the present war bore absolutely no relation to the wars of  old.    Entirely new factors had  been introduced and one of these  was the factor of numbers.    At,  Waterloo, the entire number en-  | gaged -was 170,000 men, while in  | this  war 25,000,000  men   have  ; been withdrawn from productive  ��������� labor and are either facing each  jotheror training.  S    This war had shown the futili-  i  i ty of forts against modern siege  | guns.     Liege itself  could  not  ; have withstood the Germans for  ! forty-eight hours if the Germans  had brought forward their heavy  1 siege guns at once.    It took some  i days to get these guns into posi-j  : tion and these days the Belgians}  ; utilized to the best advantage.  I     Analyzing the German position \  I Dr. Sarolea declared that after1  | much study he had come to the  conclusion   "that the  Germans  had gone politically insane and  i that   Germany  ��������� lunatic asylum.

Bella  Coola  farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  'pHE REASONS for this enviable condi-  ���������*��������� tion of affairs are obvious to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  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.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley canied away  over twenty first prizes.  OELLA 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.  . < >.

Place of internment should be  stated always if possible, and  parcels cannot be accepted unless place of internment is stated.  All addresses must be in ink.  Communications should"be limited to private and family news  and to necessary business communications, and should not be  sent too frequently.  No references to the naval,  military or political situation, or  to naval or military movements  and organizations are allowed.  Letters or postcards containing  such references will not be delivered.  Friends of prisoners of war  are advised to send postcards in  preference to letters as postcards  are less likely to be delayed. If  letters are sent, they should not  exceed in length two sides of a  sheet of notepaper and should  contain nothing but the sheet of  note paper. On no account  should the writing be crossed.  Letters cannot for the present  be accepted for registration.  Postage need not be paid either  on letters or parcels addressed to  prisoners of war.  No letters should be enclosed  in parcels, and newspapers must  not on any account be sent. So  far as is known there is no restriction on the contents of parcels; tobacco may be sent arid  will be.admitted dutyfree, but  food stuffs of a perishable character should not be sent.

It must be understood that no  guarantee of the delivery of  either parcels or letters can be of Sir Richard's absence in the  SIR RICHARD'S ABSENCE.  The seriousness of the financial  situation of the Province may  well be measured by the duration  given-and that the Post Office  accepts no responsibility.   In any  case,   considerable   delay  may  take place and failure to receive  an .acknowledgment should not  necessarily be taken as an indication that letters and  parcels  sent have not been delivered.
