Germans  fbombarded the French positions  fwith greatest violence in region  ?of Deadman's   Hill  throughout  Wednesday.      Intense artillery  'duel continued last night on the  east bank of the Meuse. No other  important actions around  Verdun.    Air squadron early today  droppad twenty shells on Thion-  ville and  Augun  stations completely destroying them, also 50  shells on supply depots at Azan-  nes.   Most of them hit the mark  causing great loss of life and  severe property damage.    Germans have thrown over 75,000  fresh troops into action this week  according to reports received at  the war office.   Since February,  one million Germans have been  in action around Verdun.    300,-  000 have been killed or put out  of action.

The French are retiring  from Hill 304 and its surrender  is imminent. This is the last  strongly fortified height remaining in their possession northwest of Verdun. Several French  positions on the summit already  evacuated. The next general  assault will probably bring them  into the hands of the Germans.  French are offering desperate  tenacious resistance, but are  really falling back.  Paris, June 2.���������More complete  accounts   reaching   here   from  Verdun  show the battle raged  from May 27 to May 30 and which  ended, in  costly check for  the  Germans was the greatest efl'orl  made by the Teutonic forces during the whole Verdun operations.  More  heavier guns and densei  masses of troops assem bled along  three milesof French front from  Hill 304 to" the Meuse, than any  previous  attack.      The  French  stood   firm  under avalanche ol  shot and shell and drove back  wave after wave of the flood of  Teutonic  infantry.     They surrendered only about 100 yards in  Caurettes wood where the trench  was  obliterated   by the terrific  fire from German big guns.  Germans Admit French  Occupy Their Trenches  THE PURITY OF THE BALLOT MUST BE PRESERVED  Conclusions Drawn From Evidence Given at the By-Election  Investigation.  It may seem that the Courier gives more space to the inquiry of  the by-election scandals at Vancouver than its importance warrants. That in view of the great majority obtained by the "Liberal candidate the crime committed had no appreciable effect upon  the final result. But admitting that such is the case yet the practise of corrupting the ballot is a crime of a nature so serious that  its perpetrators should be held up for public condemnation and  their punishment insistently demanded. This crime is the tainting of our free institutions at the fountain head. And that being  the case we offer no apology for reproducing two editorials frcrr  the Vancouver Sun dealing with inferences to be drawn from the  evidence given up till two weeks ago:  The Plot Exposed.  We gather from J. L. Sullivan's  evidence given yesterday the  following facts:  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  1. J. L. Sullivan had been told  by Sullivan, Sr., four or five days  before   election   day,   that   the  Some Suggestive Contrasts.  J. L. Sullivan admits that he  knew on Feb. 21st or 22nd, that  a gang of "pluggers" were coming from Seattle to take part in  the Vancouver by election.

The House prorogued and writs  for the general election will be  issued on June 5th. Election to  take place in September.

New York, June 1.���������For the  murder of his millionaire father-  in-law, Waite was sentenced to  die at Sing Sing during week beginning July 10.  Berlin, June 2.���������(Official German report.) In the attack on  our positions southeast of ���������Dead-  man's Hill the French obtained  a foothold in-the first line of our  trenches over an extent of 400  metres. French made repeated  assaults on German lines, but  other than at point mentioned  the enemy were beaten off with  extremely heavy losses.  Austrians Make Progress  Rome, June 2. ���������Current bulletins on the campaign in southern  Tyrol record continued gains for  Austrians, but they have not  reached the main line of Italian  defense which bars the way to  the Venetian plain. According  to a Cophenhagen dispatch, reports from Berlin says that Dr.  Liebknecht is being tried for  treason and if convicted will get  ten years with hard labor.  Saloniki Forces Make Move  Berlin, June 2. ��������� A general  movement of Anglo-French forces at Saloniki towards the Macedonian border has been in progress for some time is reported  in the official statement by Bulgarian army headquarters.  Longshoremen Strike  Seattle, June 1���������Shipping completely tied up in all Pacific ports  when the threatened strike of  longshoremen went into effect at  6 a. m. today. Temporary coast  strike headquarters was established here last night. Situation  regarded as serious.  San Franeibco, June 2.���������Shipowners shortly after noon today  granted increase of 5 cents per  hour to 4000 longshoremen who  struck work at six this morning.  2. On the following day he  recei-ved a letter from his friend  Carroll stating that he had been  asked to "get men to vote for  Macdonald," and asking him  what he thought of it. Strange  to say, he "DID NOT ANSWER  THE LETTER," but "took steps  to stop, any plugging."    '"  3; His first step w__s to forward the letter by James Reed,  license inspector, to the Conservative executive, whereupon he  was called upon by F. W. Welsh,  who informed him that the matter had been discussed with the  premier and Mr. Tisdall and  "they would stop the men at the  border. But, strange to say. although the premier and Mr. Tisdall had all the powers of the  Provincial and Dominion governments at their backs, THEY DID  NOT STOP THEM AT THE  BORDER. They did not ATTEMPT TO STOP THEM AT  THE BORDER.  4. On Feb, 24th he returned  to Seattle and met Carroll and  White who were both his friends,  and who told him that one was  handling a gang of men and the  other the money.

W. Welsh. If the object was to  have them stopped or arrested  on arrival, it is strange that NO  EFFORT WAS MADE to prevent their landing in Vancouver.  G. An elderly man having told  him that more were going to  Vancouver by train that day, another wireless was sent to Welsh.  NO EFFORT. WAS MADE to arrest this batch at the train.  7. On Friday afternoon the  day before election, he heard  from his brother Pat that more  men were coming by boat and  train. He carried the news to  Mr. Reardon of the Metropole  hotel; Mr. Eager, secretary of  the Hotel Keepers' Association,  and on Friday night he and Reardon went to the train to MEET  THE ARRIVALS. They did not  have them arrested.  (Continued on page 3, column 1.)  fact.  J. L. Sullivan admits that he  showed Carroll's letter to James  Reed, license inspector.  As Mr. Sullivan was the champion of the "wets," his admission throws an interesting light  upon the relations of the "wets"  apd. the license inspector.  ; There is no evidence that any  Liberal received a letter from  Seattle detailing the movements  of the pluggers.  J. L. Sullivan admits that  through the license inspector the  Conservative executive was furnished with the Carroll letter so  that they might be fully apprised  of the pending invasion of the  pluggers.  There is no evidence that the  Liberal executive had the faintest suspicion that anything of  the kind was about to take place.  J. L. Sullivan admits that F.  W. Welsh fully informed the premier and Mr. Tisdall of the oncoming of the hosts.  There is no evidence that Mr.  Brewster or Mr. Macdonald had  received even a hint of what was  contemplated. The chairman of  the investigating committee has  stated that there is no suggestion  that Mr. Brewster knew anything about the plot. There is  not a scintilla of evidence that  Mr. Macdonald was aware of the  coming invasion.  J. L. Sullivan admits that F.  Welsh, Conservative aspirant and  general roustabout, visited him  to discuss the matter.  There is no evidence that any  Liberal visited Mr. Sullivan, or  anyone of the Seattle gangsters.  J. L. Sullivan admits that F.  W. Welsh got him to go to Seattle, where he saw Carroll and  White and completed his information as to the schemes of the  "pluggers."  There is no evidence that any  Liberal went to Seattle or knew  any one of the "pluggers" or  anthing of their schemes.  J. L. Sullivan admits that he  went down to the Seattle boat  and mingled with Monty White  and the gang-.  There is no evidence that any  Liberal performed  the kind of-  Continued on page 3, column 2.  S. S. Camosun arrived at the  very unusual time of eight o'clock Sunday morning. Theonly  reason that can be assigned for  this extraordinary . occurrence  was that some of our valient  soldier boys were on board eager  to reach their respective homes  on a short furlough. If you read  the names and know the circumstances you can ��������� easily see the  connection. .  The arrivals were H. G. Anderson, Ingvald Urseth, Hans  Helgeson, R. A. Teebay and Mrs.  D. H. Hoage. It being rather  early in the morning it was found  that nobody wanted to go away.  hood in Norway and partly with  his son at the family homestead  near Victoria.  It is his intention to spend a  few weeks visiting his countrymen in Bella Coola and enje>y  our fine climate and other attractions.  Privates H. G. Anderson and  Ingvald Urseth came up from  the camp of the 102nd Battalion  in quarters at Comox, for the  purpose of saying the last goodbye before going to the front.  Mrs. D. H. Hoage, after staying away for quite a length of  time, found the attractions oi  Bella Coola too strong to resist  and has now taken up her residence in the small house opposite  the hospital.   ���������  That R. A. Teebay came up  from Rivers Inlet on a short visit  in spite of his strenuous duties  as engineer of the launch Merlin,  was in the nature of things inevitable. His family had arrived  in Bella Coola one week earlier  and they had not met for several  months.  Hans Helgeson of Metchosin,  near Victoria, was another arrival by the last mail steamer.  This is his second visit here,  having paid a short visit about  thirteen years ago.  Mr. Helgeson is one of the  oldest pioneers of the province.  He arrived at Victoria in 1858  from California, where he had  preceded the celebrated "forty  miners" by two years.  He is in the best sense of the  word the embodiment of the  progress of the Pacific coast and  especially of British Columbia,  where he has laid down the greater part of his life work. He has  taken an active part in the development of the province since  his early arrival, Mining in the  Cariboo at-first, later in the fisheries, then in agriculture; in all  of these chief industries of the  province he attained prominence  and success because of his practical good sense, ability and  sterling integrity.  During his long career he has  at all times enjoyed the confidence of all people with whom  his numerous activities have  brought him in contact; which  may be evidenced by the fact  that he has served several terms  as member of our legislature,  representing first the Cariboo  and later the Esquimalt constituencies. We believe he holds the  unique distinction of being the  only one of his nationality who  has had a seat in our legislature.  Having arrived at a ripe old age  and having ample means at his  disposal he has retired from all  business pursuits. His latter  years have been spent partly  amidst the scenes of his child-  From reports of the proceedings of the Methodist conference  held at Victoria, we are glad to  note that Rev. W. H. Gibson will  remain in charge of the Bella  Coola Indian Mission, where he  has spent a number of years in  a more than usual successful  ministry.  From the same source we learn  that the vacancy in the pastorate of Bella Coola and vicinity  caused by the enlisting of Rev.  T. C. Colwell has not yet been  filled, but "will be supplied."  The troubled minds of cur  shippers of potatoes were relieved early Saturday mornir/g  of last week by the belated arrival of the freighter Prince Albert. ��������� It took on about sixty tor s  of potatoes for different destinations, namely: Ocean Falls,  Prince Rupert and Anyox.  Mr. and Mrs. Reginald Hill rejoices in the arrival of a boy in  the family. He arrived at the  hospital on Wednesday morning.  Mother and child are doing well.  Empire Day came very near  being witness to a conflagration  of some dimensions, but the  calamity was averted by the  timely observation of Mr. A. C.  Christensen. There had been  some smoldering embers left of  a small fire of the week previous  in the vicinity of Johnson's mill.  It was thought, however* that  it was entirely out. 'Such not  being the case it somehow man-  to assume threatening proportions at a time when everybody  was away attending the celebration nearly two miles away at  the Indian village. Mr. Chiis-  tensen being at home was aroused  by the great volumes of dense  smoke rising, procured assistance and was fortunate in arresting the fire before it had done  any real damage. If it had gotten beyond control it would in all  probability have swept the greater part of the townsite.  B. F. Jacobsen among his many  duties as farmer and hotel keeper manages al o to find time to  look after his logging operations,  conducted by a crew of men on  his holding at the head of South  Bentink Arm. He made a flying  trip out there the first of the  week and found everything progressing in fine shape. He  states that logging is carried on  by different parties all along the  inlet.

In g_<ing .through the reports  of the investigation of the ille-  gU'voting at the Vancouver by-  election one episode in the sorry  spectacle proved very attractive  to our mind. .It showed that  honor and innocence have a  -��������� strength comparable to a fortified position.  Mr. M. A. Macdonald, the Liberal, member of our legislature  from Vancouver and president of  the Provincial Liberal Association,  has  been the one person  whose .character^ above all others'  it has been theaimof themajor-  -   ity of the investigating committee to blacken, by trying to prove  by many false witnesses that he  was connected and>,benefited by  ' the vote pluggers  employed at  the. election which gave him such  an overwhelming majority.    To  an  impartial   observer   it will,  even before the defense has had  an  opportunity to  bring in its  witnesses, be plain that the at-  - tempt to injure the character of  the Liberal member has utterly  failed and will eventually prove  the  truth   of   the   saying that  "those   who   dig  a   grave   for  others will themselves fall into  , it."     "  As the "one higher up" implicated in this nefarious affair Mr.  Macdonald was called before th*  committee the other day to be  examined and as it was thought  searchingly   cross-examined .to  ascertain his alleged guilt.   But  when   he appeared   before the  committee his antagonists were  struck dumb as it were.   In the  face of his undoubted honor, integrity and  innocence of this  ��������� crime, his. accusers were not so  hardened that they were able to  approach him even with any in-  sjlfcing1 questions or incriminating inferences.    They had nothing to say  whatever,   not   one  question to ask; they listened to  his story of how he had conduc-  his campaign to be elected, and  his transparent straightforwardness and truthfulness in telling  hb story were of such a strength  that no voice could be raised in  even the slightest criticism.  Truth crushed to earth will al-  ways rise again.  Those who in this campaign  are fighting forpurity in politics,  for economy in public affairs,  forsa proper regard of the interests of the public at large, will  emerge at the close of the coming election with victory perched  upon their banner.  ca" is the obvious thing for the  tourist to do at this time and last  year saw an unprecedented flow  of travel to the rocky fastnesses  of the west and the intricate  channels and inland seas of the  northern Pacific Coast.  Hitherto it has been iashion-  able for  the   wealthy  to   visit  the European countries when in  search   of   pleasure   and   rest,  .vhieh is expected to be found  and enjoyed on a trip in vacation.  But the fact that it has been  fashionable is not a warrant that  it also will give the pleasure and  sense of  restfulness   which is  necessary in order to recuperate  the ��������� spiritual   and   intellectual  forces subjected to  the strain,  wear and  worry of the great  pace set by society, business and  profession in these times. ���������  We believe that the grandeur  and beauty of scenery found  along our northern coast and in  the valleys traversing the mountain ranges is equal to any found  in farfamed Switzerland and the  coast of Norway. It should only  be necessary to point' out this  fact to the travelling public and  when they, have been induced to  eome'and^ see for themselves we  are convinced that they would  be so well pleased that this part  of the world would beccme as  popular and attractive as those  of foreign lands.  We are glad to note that the  Union   Steamship-  Co.,   whose  boats make weekly calls at Bella  Coola, has published  a booklet  "North by West in the Sunlight"  which contains a description of  a trip on board one of its comfortable   steamers   along   this  charming coast,  with its many  wooded islands, its parallel snow  capped   mountain    ranges,   its  quaint nooks, hamlets and camps  with their mixed and primitive  denizens   of   many   races   and  lationalities.  Bella Coola, that most beauti-  respects are unequalled. The  length of this article forbids go-  into details of description, suf-  to judge, have at different times  expressed it as their opinion that  the scenery of Bella Coola is not  surpassed by that of Switzerland,  Our hotel, our road, our climate,  our fisheries, our game both  large and small, from grizzlies  to rabbits.our mountains a waitings be scaled and pur comparative seclusion, with the facilities of telegraph/and telephone  make Bella Ccola a place that as  a-tourist resort will only have tc  be tried to become appreciated  fice to say that travellers,, who  from experience are competent | as one of the most attractive.

Sullivan admits that he  "wirelessed" Welsh that the  pluggers were on the briny deep  and would reach Vancouver in  due time.  There is no evidence that any  Liberal knew of their leaving,  much less went to the trouble of  sending the necessary despatches.  J. L. Sullivan admits that he  sent another wireless to Welsh  that, another lot would arrive by  train.  Again, no evidence that anyone performed the same kind office for the Liberals.  J. L. Sullivan admits that,  naving been apprised by his  orotherPat that still others were  .oming by boat, he carried the  news to Mr. Reardon of the.Met-  ropole hotel and Mr. Egar, secretary of the Hotel Keepers' Association. As the "plugging"  witnesses have sworn that they  voted "wet," it seems eminently  proper that the various hotel organizations should know that  chey were on the way.  Still no evidence that any Liberal knew of the approaching  descent of the-"pluggers" on  Vancouver,  J. L. Sullivan admits that he  went to meet them at the. train.  This was an eminently friendly  act which was to be expected  jtnder the circumstances.  No Liberal went to meet them  At the train.  J. L. Sullivan admits that he  jot into touch with Joe Hoskin,  an .ex-alderman in Vancouver,  ind Victor Love, secretary oi  che Conservative Association,  with the- rather amiable result  that: He went to meet .the arrivals at" New Westminster, while.  Joe Hoskin: performed the same  friendly act for the arrivals in  Vancouver.  There is no evidence that anj  Liberal met any train, or any  "plugger."  J. L.

On the contrary, it  seems to have been a case of  jovial handshaking, and "welcome to our city."  There is no evidence that a  single member of the Liberal  party from Mr. Brewster down,  knew any of these things.  J. L. Sullivan admits that although the entire Conservative  organization knew every feature  of the plot, they did not, and  have not, made a single arrest.  The moment the Liberals secured evidence of fraudulent  voting, the offender was" arrested and is now serving nine  months in jail.  Like all the "plugging" witnesses Sullivan admits that he  was working for the "wets."  He admits that he was working  to keep the Bowser aggregation  in power. As witness Kelly said,  all the "pluggers" wereengageo  in the same task of voting foi  the "wets." and "keeping a lot  of good fellows in power."  That they did vote and "plug''-  for the wets there can be nc  manner of doubt.  BUSINESS CARDS  o  30E  '. :������.  77  .

Readjustment of Seattle business, following the widespread  changes imposed by the new anti-saloon law, is.practically completed, according to the statements of realty dealers and rental agencies. This means that  more than 300 store rooms, vacated by saloons on or just prioi  to January 1, have been utilized  by other lines of trade, and that  the general level of rentals is  now practically unaffected by the  retirement from business of the  saloons.  Now   that   readjustment has  been accomplished without loss,  Seattle has reason to congratulate itself upon the favorable outcome.    The proposed vacation of  so large a numberof store rooms  was a disturbing influence in the  local realty business for a yeai  preceding the change.    Seattle  has proven its capacity to successfully meet almost any emergency, but there was a situation  that promised to test its recuperative ability to the utmost.    A  less virile and active com muni tj  would have sagged badly undei  the stress.  The favorable condition in th.  local rental situation is the fact  that   Seattle   is   growing,   and  growing just now very rapidly.  Established business firms have  enlarged   their   business   space  and new concerns have entered  the growing field.

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.

This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when faim pio-  duce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.

Relying upon re  ceiving $30.00   net per ton  at  Prince Rupert a number of farmers had refused a price of $2S  per ton offered by a local merchant   and  had  nearly filled  the  warehouse on  the  wharf  with  potatoes awaiting the arrival of  a Union  Steamship  Company's  steamer to take them to the northern   city.      Indignation   was  strong   against   the   steamship  company becauseof its failure to  take away the potatoes at the  time it promised to do so; and  the innocent market at -Prince  Rupert was blamed because"the  prices did not.hold up till these  potatoes were disposed of.  While the delay of the transportation company was open to  criticism the rnarket at Prince  Rupert  was   wholly   without  blame; but to our .way of- thinking, those persons who intended  to ship a large consignment of  one kind of produce to a comparatively limited market at the end  of the,season with'the expectation of getting a larger price than  elsewhere were taking chances  that no prudent  business man  would take.   ���������  But in extenuation of their lack  of prudence in this transaction,  it must be remembered that the  average farmer is not a business  man.
