Will Erect Church  A public meeting was held at  the Mackenzie School on.Monday  morning last, when the question  of building a Church was taken  up for consideration.  The committee elected at a  previous meeting brought in the  recommendation that the people  in building a church should work  in conjunction with the Methodist Church of Canada. This  was finally decided upon, the  Rev. T. Golwell being requested  to open negotiations for the purchase of two town lots on which  the church will be built.  A further meeting of the people  will be held at a later date when  plans of the proposed building  and estimated cost will be submitted. The building will be  erected by public subscription.

They will  be employed in fishing for the  neighboring canneries.  A large number of independent  icenses  have  been  issued  and  preparations for a large pack are  practically completed.  Provincial Constables A. W.  Stone and F. A. Barber, along  with Magistrate A. S. Hood, are  stationed at Brunswick Cannery.  Constable A. W. Stone is at  present visiting the various canneries including Bella Coola and  Kimsquit for the purpose of  issuing fishing licenses.  London, June 19.���������The women  of Wales will get the vote, if the  bill prepared by Welsh radical  members of the House of Commons, providing for home rule in  that principality should become  a law.  The measure represents a further extension of the policy of  autonomous home government  initiated in the Irish bill, and  follows closely the lines of the  Scottish home rule bill recently  discussed in the Commons. According to the terms of the bill,  there is to be a single-chamber  parliament in Wales, subordinate  to the imperial parliament, for  whose eighty members women  may vote on the same condition  as men.

Ottawa, June 19.���������The desirability of a revision of the Canadian tariff, it is said, is being  recognized by the government,  and the work will be taken up  during the recess with an idea of  bringing about a pretty general  revision.  The news of a grizzly bear  being killed in a wood-shed adjoining a ranch house comes from  the Upper Bella Coola Valley.  ; Mr. Walter Ratcliff on returning home from work on his farm,  came upon the huge brute as it  was in the act of making a  speedy exit from the wood-shed  and succeeded in killing it with  a shot in the head.  Seattle Prepares For  Opening of Canal  Seattle, June 19.��������� The proposed improvements of the port  of Seattle prepatory to the opening of the Panama Canal, were  yesterday adopted by a vote of  eight to one. A special election  expenditure of three million dollars for construction of public  (terminals will include docks,  warehouses and cold storage  plants.  Munitions of War For  An Irish Peer Seized  London, June 19.- The police  raided a warehouse in London tonight and discovered between  3,000 and 4,000 rifles and a similar number of bayonets, packed  in boxes ready for shipment.  The raid was a sequel to the  seizure of a consignment of rifles  and bayonets on board a steamer  arriving at Dublin, June 6, from  Liverpool. This consignment  was addressed to Baron Farn-  ham, an Irish peer, at his country  seat in County Cavan, and were  traced to the same warehouse.  Mr. Reginald Walker, hereto-  foreknown as one of Bella Coola's  many bachelors, has now joined  the ranks of the benedicts. Mr.  Walker was married at Christ  Church Cathedral, Victoria, a  few days previous to returning  to Bella Coola. The bride was  given away by the Honorable and  Reverend T. Heneage, Mr. Bert  Rolston acting as groomsman;  the Rev. A. J. Doull, Dean of  Columbia officiated.  Mr. and Mrs. Walker have  taken up residence at the Walker  Ranch close to Hagensborg.  Mrs. Teebay, wife of R. A.  Teebay, arrived with her three  daughters and is at present visiting with Mrs. George Young,  until such time as the handsome  residence in course of construe  tion for Mr. Teebay is completed  ascertaining that the jars were  made of glass by the good old  fashioned method of throwing a  stone and smashing one, came to  the conclusion that they would  make admirable flower pots, so  straightway fishing out those  easily reached they took them to  their respective homes, alas.!  only to find that they were guilty  of a grave misdemeanor in endangering the efficiency of the  local telegraph service.  After being duly admonished  by a Justice of the Peace the  ladies kindly consented to return  the jars, and we understand proceedings will not be taken against  them.   The road graderpassed through  town on Tuesday on its way to  foreman Draney's road camp  where it will be put to use.  Messrs G. McMillan and C.  Garrett having chartered a local  power boat left on Tuesday for  a ten days trip down the Inlet.  Mr. E. Williams comes to relieve Mr. J. N. Cran the manager  of the local branch of the Bank  of B.N. A., who leaves by the  next south bound steamer to  spend his vacation in Vancouver.  Messrs P. G. Koop, H. Hewitt,  E. R. A. Russell and W. Sutherland, left town on Monday afternoon for a bear hunt in the Noo-  mamish Valley.  Under the guidance of Mr.  Sutherland the party hunted the  slides at the head of Noomamish  River, but finding that the bears  had left that part and that  chances of sport were very slim,  the party returned on Tuesday  night.  Mr. Koop is the guest of Mi*.  H. Hewitt.  We are pleased to announce  the arrival of a baby boy oh the  evening of the 16th at the home  of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Draney.  Mrs. Draney and son are both  doing well.  Fred and Charles Hendricks  are out after bear. These boys  chose the Necleetsconnay Valley  as offering the best prospects of  sport.   Messrs C. Rainsford and L.  Calnan left town On Tuesday for  a few days trip to the Upper  Valley.        We wonder if Walter Ratcliff  has a license to carry a gun, not  that it was necessary when he -  shot the bear in his wood-shed,  as being on his own land only a  permit was required. It is only  reasonable to suppose that he  has such a permit, otherwise  Walter would never have disturbed the bear.  The C. P. R. steamer has given  M. W. Marvin of Constantia  Ranch. Atnarko, arrived in town  Thursday and is registered at  the Grand View Hotel.

Look Before You Leap  Several prominent members of  the local Conservative party have  called on us recently with grievances loud and long regarding  conditions in connection with the  road work throughout the Valley.  The "Courier" is always ready  and willing to voice a grievance  when such can be shown to really  exist, and there are few people  of intelligence who will deny  that in the question of roads  Bella Coola has a righteous  grievance.  There is now .a move on foot  to constructs new road from  Hagensborg, eastward on the  north side of the main river, to a  point above the mouth of the  Nootsatum River, when a crossing of the Bella Coola River will  be made by the construction of a  bridge of considerable dimensions.  This work is to be. undertaken  with a view of correcting a flagrant error of judgment on the  part of the superintendent in the  making of several miles of road  and a bridge across the canyon  on the Nootsatsum River at a  cost of some ten thousand dollars.  This latter road is to be aban-  doned, having been found to be  impossible for the better part of  the year, the road-superintendent  himself, together with his retinue,  preferring to use a temporary  bridge constructed by a number  of settlers, which bridge bye-the-  way, the road-superintendent  refused to assist them to construct.  The cause of this culpable  waste of money, lies in the fact  that the road around the canyon  was never properly located and  surveyed. Triie, a pretence was  made at locating a road which  would have made the distance  very little greater than by the  route previously used, but a large  gang had been Jat work for some  time on the road to the canyon  before it was discovered that the  desired route from the canyon on  the other side was not practicable, and then the road-superintendent evidently thought it was  too late to turn back,  and sol  rather than eat a small slice of  humble pie, he proceeded with  the work, with the result already  mentioned.  o     o     o     o     o  The point we want to bring out  in connection with .this projected  new road is, that like the canyon  roac, it has never been properly  located and surveyed, and it  seems to us that this work is to  be undertaken in the same reckless spirit which has characterised so many of the road-superintendent's actions.  The country through' which this  road is to pass presents natural  obstacles, and while we do not  say that these obstacles are such  that they cannot be overcome,  we emphatically claim that it is  clearly the duty of the road-  superintendent to have the route  of this road thoroughly cruised  and surveyed by competent parties, and so avoid another fiasco  like the "canyon bridge.  o     o     o     o     o  It strikes us that in an import-  matter of this kind, it would not  be at all undignified on the part  of the road-superintendent to  consult two or three of the settlers in that part, who have intimate knowledge of the country  and after all are the people who  have to use- the road. Maybe  these settlers having lived in the  immediate locality for some  twenty years know something  about the, projected route that  would save the road boss con:  siderable trouble in the future,  besides possibly saving thousands  of dollars from following the  thousands already virtually  thrown away.  o     o     o     o     o  Nothing has yet been heard  from Mr. Matson respecting the  disposal of the-forty-five thousand dollars which mysteriously  disappeared in the Songhees  Reserve deal.  The people of the Province have  not forgotten this matter, although Mr. Matson's three newspapers seem to think that such  is the case.  The people are still   of the  opinion that an explanation is  due from the Government which  is responsible for handing over  public funds to a private individual without requiring a proper  accounting.  There probably was an accounting, but not of a nature  .that would commend itself to an  honest auditor of books; ;  Since Mr. Matson persists in  his silence regarding what became of the money, it is up to  the people to demand an explanation from Sir Richard McBride  and Hon. W. J. Bowser.  having declared that the course  of contribution, for which this  measure calls, would cause friction. I want no friction. He  declared that it would lead lo  separation. I want no separation. If what Mr. Borden at  that time said was true, that the  adoption of any such course as is  called for,in this bill would lead  to friction and would lead to  separation, then I want none of  it. "���������Sir George Ross.  Railroad Aid  , A gift of $15,000,000^has been  voted the Canadian Northern and  a loan of a similar amount is to  be made to the Grand Trunk Pacific. ,Why the former should  receive a grant outright instead  of a loan has not been clearly  shown.  The contention of the Minister  of Railways that the Canadian  Northern has not been as liberally assisted as other roads is entirely fallaceous.  The four provinces west of the  great lakes, are pledged up, to  the hilt on behalf of this road,  British Columbia alone guaranteeing the bonds to the extent of  $40,(f00,000. In fact, the aggregate' guarantees of the Canadian  Northern are considerably in excess of two hundred million dollars. ' y -���������  _ O      O   " o      o     o  The entire expenditure on'the  Grand Trunk Pacific up to "December, 1912, was'$127,219,863,  which large sum did not come  out of the Dominion treasury,  though the Laurier government  did guarantee the bonds 'of the  company:-  o     o    o    o    o  It is quite reasonable 'to suppose that if some railway wanted  to steal the Royal Mint or the  Parliament buildings no obstacle  would be placed in the way by  the Tories.  o     o    o     o    o  The Real Separatist  "Mr. Borden stated in Toronto  that I was a sound imperialist.  It is because I am an imperialist,  because I am a good imperialist,  that I cannot support this measure. Mr. Borden is a separatist.  He stands convicted out of his  own mouth.    He is on record of  Senator Riley says Mr. Borden  will not go to the^country on his  contribution policy, because he  knows the people of Canada do  not approve of it. The Premier  would be only too glad to take a  chance if he thought the people  were behind him.  The land in Bella Coola is flat,  but hills are sometimes built to  the lasting mortification of the  poor settler. When you come to  one of these hills just repeat  these verses then pass on.
