"Artillery ccrr.tat begun in-sector north of Arras has been retarded by very thick fog.  Supplementary reports in capture of Neuville, St. Vaast, established the fact that the north-east section of village and the  .mallfort which enemy had erected- there were defended with  extreme obstinacy. It was only by a struggle foot by foot from  house to house that our infantry took possession of the entire  position. Germans did not retire until last extremity had been  reached. We found in houses, passageways and cellars, upwards  of 1000 Germans dead. In region of Hebuerne we captured from  enemy on June 8 six machine guns. In Champagne, in region  of Beausejour, more than a battalion of the enemy attacked our  trenches, but were everywhere repulsed. A number of dead  were left on the ground. On heights of Meuse, notably at Le  Esparges, there was a violent artillery engagement, in the course  of which our guns reduced to silence the batteries of the enemy."  fltalians Show Great Bravery  &Rome, June 10.���������Official statement.    "Reports received of options on June 7 and 8 show that the Italians, in pursuing along  Isonzo river the task of dislodging the Austrians from strong  iural positions and establishing bridge heads, are displaying  ^gfsisit bravary and tenacity in face of heavy obstacles, intensi-  by floods.     We have occupied the town of Montfalccne, 16  if.3 north-west of Trieste, near Adriatic.    Our losses were.not  3&l������&(fous, while we took over 400 Austrian prisoners."

Foreigners LeaveMexico  Washington, June 10.���������British  authorities in Mexico are arrange-  ing to take out foreigners by  horseback and automobile to  points from which there is train  service to Vera Crux.  Despatches  to   the   Carranza  agency from Vera Cruz indicate  that Carranza has begun taking  steps to distribute food. Tales  of hunger riots, wanton looting  and bloodshed subsequent to the  evacuation of Monterey by Villa  troops were.told by .passengers  arriving from that city.  President Wilson's statement  has been delivered in Mexico  City for transmission to Generals  Garza and Zapata. Department  officials believe it has by this  time been delivered to General  Villa and therefore is ih the  hands of all the leaders.  Stores Discovered  Rome, via Paris, June 11.���������A  despatch to the Tribune from  Athens says: "The Allies have  discovered at a lonely part of the  coast near Kalimmo (an island  off the south-west coast of Asia  Minor) 1500 cases and 95 barrels  of benzine with which it was intended to replenish the tanks of  Germans submarines operating  in Dardanelles region.  on Thursday last in the Dominion  launch Charles Todd for Bella  Bella and China Hat.  In endeavoring to bring the  Indians up in the way they should  go it is rather interesting to note  what measures the Indian Department will take to accomplish  this result. On [this tiip it was  found necessary to bring three  sacks of ordinary Bella Coola soil  to China Hat to make it possible  for the Indians there to utilize  some seed sent by the Department, as there is no soil to be  found on that rocky shore. Mr.  Fougner intends to return in  about one week.  Fred Covey and A. Wood, who  are logging ori South Bentink  Arm, paid our town a call last  Wednesday. They laid in a stock  of supplies for the next month's  stay in the solitudes.       '  The catch of spring salmon in  the inlet has been very satisfactory since the season opened.  Mr. Estenson, who with Iver  Kjolhaug, is taking care of a  cattle ranch at the head of South  Bentink Arm was in town from  Saturday til Tuesday last. He  took away with him Mr. Thompson to keep him company in the  absence of Kjolhaug .'"..who will  fish for salmon here this season.  Walter Ratcliffe of Stillwater,  a lake situated 45 miles frcm salt  water.  The party found several log  jams and beaver dams obstructing the river and interfering with  the passage of the salmon to the  spawning grounds. They removed all these obstrctions both  in the main stream and some of  its branches. They went up in  canoe to within six miles of the  lake, above that point the river  was too swift for canoeing.  It may be of interest to our  readers to learn that twenty  miles from the lake down the  stream, there is a stretch of as  fine a body of agricultural land-  as any in Bella Coola. The upper  part of the valley is three to four  miles wide. The land is interspersed with beaver meadows,  and the rest of the land will be  found of easy clearing. The  lake is four miles long and only  half a day's journey distant from  Kitlope, on Gardner channel. A  stick-Indian trail leads to the  Tetachuck country. Large game,  such as bears and goats, is  abundant.  The Courier extends its sympathy to Mrs. Chas. Tucker and  Mrs. C. Charlton of the loss of  their only brother killed in the  war.  Mr. A. G.

The Courier is pleased to announce that it is now definitely  settled that arrangements have  been made by which the Draney  Fisheries, Ltd.. will operate their  canneries both at Kimsquit and  Namu during the coming fishing  season! The threatened closing  down vof these establishments  would have been quite a blow to  our community, as a great many  of our local men are employed  both in connection with the canneries and logging camps of the  company.  PROVINCIAL ELECTION  Your influence and support is respe&fully requested.  T. D.1 PATTULLO.  Liberal candidate for Prince Rupert Riding.  on the headwaters of Atnarko  river, was in town last week and  paid a visit to our sanctum. Life  in the solitude of the wilderness  seems to suit him. He will be  engaged part of the time this  summer with a crew of men in  extending the wagon road past  Stewey and as far as the ranch  of Heckmann's.  W. E. Gallienne, H. Burt and  H. Gustafson are busily engaged  in constructing a float or landing  for small boats at the wharf.  They are also erecting a hoist  that will raise a weight of two  tons. This will prove a great  convenience for the small craft  constantly coming and going.  Max Heckmann of Atnarko,  is in town renewing old acquaintances.  John Widsten,   fishery  officer  a  of this district, has just returned ��������� \  week for a few days visit. He  brought the sad news that Mr.  Donald Moore had died from  wounds received in battle with  the forces fighting in Europe.  Mr. Moore was well and favorably known along the whole coast  of British Columbia. He had for  years been engaged in the cannery business. He built and  operated for a number of years  the Cassiar cannery on the Skeena. He organized the Draney  Fisheries, Ltd., and acted as the  company's manager of its sawmill and the Namu and Kimsquit  canneries.

The  opinion among those   who   are  well  qualified  to   judge of the  management of affairs entrusted  to him. may be gathered  from  the following extract of a dispatch from London to the Ottawa  Free Press: .  "I   find   among   our soldiers  widespread   indignation  in  respect of the 'attacks upon Lord  Kitchener..   It. is.logically urged  that had the matter been really  meant    patriotically,    properly  serious   representations   in   the  right quarter would' have been  sufficient to call attention to the  matter; or failing that, a-plain  public statement,  requiring no  sensational headlines or the egregious harpings upon the already  loudly   strummed- cord,   would  have amply awakened the public."  The complaint is beihg*made,  and justly, that the-British supply of munitions' have not been  adequate to the tremendous requirements; and Lloyd George in  -his famous speech at Manchester  the 4th inst. declared that the  German victory in Galicia was  due to an overwhelming superiority in 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.

We'are very glad to note in one  of our exchanges that the system  of co-operation which we advo-  , cated in the issue of the Courier  * of the 22nd ulto. is recommended  by a committee of Canadian'agriculturists which has made" a trip  to North Dakota.to investigate  this way of carrying information  to the farmers and organizing  them under the leadership of the  field  agents   for   their, rnutual  benefit.  Mr. Geo. A. Merrick of Winnipeg, announces the result of  their investigation in a Jengthy  report in which he states in part  as follows:  "Itour unanimous opinion'that  the better farming campaign be- put the blame bit. the employees  in.the munition factories; that  their. indulgence, in  liquor and  consequent incapacity was the  main  cause;   and as a remedy  Lloyd George' proposed that the  sale, of li.quor be^curtailed and  intoxicants'abstained from during the war."-/But the British  public was riot ready for a patri-  otic'mfiasure of this nature.    It  is  willing to~ sacrifice fortune,  health and life in war but will  riot deny "their appetites.    It is  themselves on record that they  would not abstain.  The  British,   as well   as the  other warringnations, have made  great sacrifices  and they were  asked to make another���������sacrifice  did we say?   Is it a sacrifice to a  person to abstain from the use  of alcoholic   liquor   when   the  country's need demands it?   It  could be no sacrifice to any one  but to the sot.    It is not only  those in the field, and those whose  loved ones have gone there, who  must learn that the seriousness  of the war is such that all must  make sacrifices, from the king to  the humblest individual.'     The  success or failure'of the conflict  rests  with  people as  much as  with    Lord    Kitchener.     Let  each one do his share,   and a  little more.  willing to concede that petty and  malicious faultfinding should be  abandoned;   and  even  the just  criticism of matters past and beyond remedy should be avoided.,  j We believe that good Conserv'a-  . tives ought to join the Liberals  in calling attention to evil practises wherever found.    Both Liberals and  Conservatives should  stand united in urging the punishment of all   wrong doers.   No  government will be able to eliminate graft entirely; but all good,  clean  governments  will   disapprove of.it, and punish the guilty  parties every time, irrespective  of rank'or previous service. And  if they do not do that they should  not complain if they be criticized.  One way to allay party strife  during these stormy times is to  copy the plan, adopted in Great  Britain namely: to form a coalition government.    This would be  the patriotic and statesmanlike  way of treating a situation  in  which there should be no party  lines, but concord.  Let us all join hands, cut down  ���������the running expenses of administration to the lowest notch, and  strive for the husbanding of our  strength and resources to the one  great end, the preservation of  the Empire and of every noble  principle it defends.

A Plea for Peace.  Every little while we  notice  the: Conservative   papers   complaining that the Liberal journals  do 'not refrain  from  criticizing  the different Conservative governments, and they remind their  Liberal opponents of their arguments in condemning an election  during the war.    While we endorse the principle that party  warfare should cease at the present crisis,   yet we are of   the  opinion   that   corrupt   methods  and. grafting should not be allowed to go on without attention  being called  to-them," even ��������� if  there are other' and seemingly  more pressing things to attend  to.

In passing upon Germany's attitude towards China, he wrote:  "The success we had in stop-j  ing that first preposterous German movement when the whole  world seemed likely to join in it,  when  the  entire press  of  the  Continent" and a great many on  this side are in favor of it, will  always be a source of gratification. -The moment we acted, the  rest of the world paused, and  finally came over to our ground;  and   the   German   government,  which   is   generally  brutal but  seldom silly, recovered its senses,  climbed down off its perch, and  presented   another   proposition  which was exactly in line with  our position.

This  ;reat republic has not contributed by word or deed to the dis-  iress-of the harassed, distraught,  ;eason-lost nations  engaged in  levastatihg strife. :It has not  jxulted in news of victory or de-  ?eat,    but,   awe-stricken,   has  looked  on   with   sympathy  and  :ommiseration for the victims of  it all, and given its prayers for  a restoration of peace an enduring peace that would make for  a better and stronger ci vilization.  "With  pride-in  its  German-;  American   citizenship,   this  Republic  has   been,   is  today and  would continue to be Germany's  friend, as it is the friend of the  nations with which Germany is  at  war.     But,   in   the  light of  what  has   happened,   Germany  must disavow those high-handed  acts in the war zone, show ready  disposition to make adequate reparation,   and   give   acceptable  guarantees that there will be no  repetition of international law-  breaking practices.    It cannotdo  otherwise without complete rupture of relations already strained  to breaking point and putting itself in the role of an outlaw.  "That is the meaning of the  Washington note addressed to  the German government and the  German people.

The catastrophe in New Brunswick has seen print and need not  be explained again now, but Sir  Richard  McBride's misfortunes  in   British   Columbia   are   still  wrapped in a certain amount of  mystery.    It seems that Sir Richard  was challenged to a test of  strength   by  his   grand   vizier,  Bowser., When the caucus showed twenty-one to twenty-one in  the matter of an election which  the young Premier had set his  heart on,   Sir  Richard realized  that his kingdom had been divided, called for his horse, metaphorically,   and   rode   away   to  London to see his friend and ex-  amplar Winston Churchill, who  once  advertised him as having  "the seal of high destiny on his  brow."   Rumor has it that Bowser removed the seal and. that  Sir Richard would be quite satisfied now to become agent-general  for British  Columbia in London  with a fair salary and opportunities to indulge his taste for the  best English society.  In spite of reports to the contrary Sir Richard is not a rich  man. All he got out of politics  was a good living. He is the  Immortal Boy, takes no thought  of the morrow, spends his own  money that way, and adopts the  same policy toward crown lands  and railway subsidies. It's the  Irish generosity in him that  makes him as free with your  money as he is with his own���������  that and a faith in human nature  which leads him to accept the  word of land-grabbers and subsidy hogs as being good as their  bonds, which isn't putting too  high a value on it at that., At  any rate the rare old, fair old  golden days of dream surpluses  with a backing of promissory  notes are pretty well over in  British Columbia and Sir Richard  is looking around for another  job. Sir Richard is no hand at  financing a deficit. Bowser  makes a better fist of it. Being  orignally a Bluenose he can face  a blue outlook better than Sir  Richard, who is a typical son of  the Pacific Slope. Still he was  the bright little morning glor\  while he lasted.  Externally SirRichard modelled j  ! himself- on Sir Wilfrid Laurier,  \ copying his hair and his clothes  1 and other outward and visible  : signs, but when it came to copy-  (Continued on last page.)  i     __ ijhj.i������___i..       iiiii���������iTfrrrr'*'*,*J*"''''ir���������g,"''f'>'^3a,1*,***������������������"a   I  Patronize Home Industry  SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINING  REGULATIONS  /"���������OAL MINING K1GHTS of th- Dominion, in  ^ Mani'ioba.

HTHE 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 cariitd 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.

SIR RICHARD���������Continued.  ing his mind and his 'statesmanship Sir Richard couldn't -come  up to the specifications. --However, he once spent twenty-five  thousand dollars welcoming Sir  Wilfrid   to   British   Columbia's  midst, said sum  being half admiration and half politics.    Sir  Richard v/as looking toward Ottawa at that time, certain advanced thinkers in the Conservative party, including Rufus Pope,  subsequently senator,   having  groomed him to replace"Robert  Borden who wasn't such a success then as he  became after- (���������  wards.    The twenty-five thousand   dollar  reception    was   Sir  Richard making a splash for the  Ottawa conspirators.    But that  was as far as it got. -.Sir Richard  wisely  stuck  to his' own  little  flower pot, did not invite comparisons by entering'the larger  field and remained true to British  Columbia   as   long; as    British  Columbia could afford it.

A Vancouver boy at the front,  writes .of life in the trenches;  "I broke a tooth today, eating  hard-tack.    It sure is hard. -We  never  know  when we have to  turn out and 'stand to.'    'Stand  to' means to stand ,to your post  in case of an' attack.    The Germans send up star shells which  light up the surrounding trenches  and barbed wire entanglements.

'".":/  Just because a'man docs not  bother to contradict you it does  not prove that he believes all  you have to say.  A French journalist at the  front finds that Tommy Atkins  has a sense of humor. On one  occasion, he learned a German  officer came charging at the head  of his men into an English trench.  Leaping over the edge of it he  fell into a sea of black mud, from  which he picked himself up,  black and dripping, and exclaimed:  "What a confounded nuisance  this old war is, isn't it? "  Whereupon a Tommy, about to  run his bayonet through the intruder, burst into roars of laughter and made-him a prisoner instead.  "And the Tommies are philosophers too," writes the Frenchman.
