Lynching Bee  for Militants  Foretells Doyle  New York, June 4.���������Sir Conan  Doyle, the British novelist, accompanied by Lady Doyle, arrived at New York on the White  Star liner Olympic.  Mr. Doyle said England had  stood all it could from the militant suffragettes and he anticipated "a wholesale lynching  bee." "The English government," he said, "follows public  opinion and thus far public opinion has not demanded the entire  suppression of the suffragette.  But it is on the point of doing so  'and when the English mob is  thoroughly aroused, it is not a  respecter of sex."  This is the first visit to this  country for 20 years.  _d  Dies by Dynamite Route  Nelson, June 4.���������1Tying a stick  of dynamite around his neck, H.

Latest reports say that about  two miles of country is burnt  over, butthe fire being confined  to the sidehills no serious loss  has resulted. The fire is now  extinguished and no further  danger is anticipated.  Spring salmon fishing, which  commenced a couple of weeks  ago, is very good. Some good  catches have been made and the  fish taken are particularly large  and of fine quality. With warmer weather a good run is confidently expected.  - Crop prospects throughout the  valley are particularly bright.  Garden and field crops are further  advanced than has been the case  at this season for many years.  Evidence of the early spring  and the extremely favorable  weather is furnished by a sample  of meadow grass which has been  received at this office from Mr.  Gyllenspitz's ranch, some forty  miles up the valley. This grass  which was cut on the 18th of last  month measures three feet, ten  and a half inches in length.  Big Game Hunters Secure  Excellent Specimens  of Bella Coola  Grizzlies.

The present arrangements are that His Royal Highness will return to England in  October, pass the winter at Bag-  shot, and journey to the south of  Europe for the spring.  S. S. Camosun arrived in port  on Sunday afternoon with a  lengthy list of passengers besides  a considerable amount of freight.  T. Garrett, representing the  well known firm of Gault Bros,  of Vancouver, spent last week  in town on business with our  local merchants.  A. J. Bates, of The Ames Hold-  er_ McCready Company of Vancouver, made his first visit to  this place last week. Mr. Bates  travelled up the valley as far as  Hagensborg and expressed himself as agreeably surprised with  the excellent progress made by  the farmers.  A. May came up from Vancouver on the last steamer. He intends going in to Mr. Lewin's  ranch on Salmon river where he  will spend the summer.  Among the many passengers  by the Camosun was Mr. Sinnett,  representing Jas. Thompson &  Son, wholesale drygoods merchants of Vancouver. This is  Mr. Sinnett's first visit to this  town.          Gus Swanberg left last Sunday  for Ocean Falls where he intends  working on a large boom of logs.  He will return as soon as his job  gives out.  six children from the aforementioned institution who have been  adopted by families resident in  the valley.  The attendance being large it  is gratifying to know that a  handsome sum will be donated to  such a worthy cause.  Rev. T. C. Colwell after attending the Methodist conference at  Kamloops has gone east on a  visit to his relatives. He expects  to return during the latter part  of July.  During Mr. Colwell's absence  his work in the valley will,be  carried on by Rev. W. H. Gibson,  assisted by' Capt. Wm. Stephens  and Mr. E. Whitehead.  Road work is proceeding apace  throughout the valley. Foreman  Draney has moved his camp from  the town and is now engaged on  the road to the new Bella Coola  river bridge.  Bridge-foreman Ellison has the  new span in the Saloomt bridge  well under way and expects to  be finished in the course of another week.    .  Foreman Svisdahl and his gang  are employed on road work in  the Saloomt valley and are showing good results.  Foreman Hoage is in charge  of a road grading gang about the  twenty-three mile post and is  making good headway.  Above [the Crossing Frank  Johnson has a gang at work on  much needed improvements to  the road in the neighborhood of  Mr. Graham's ranch.  Max Heckman is continuing  the road this side of Stouic.  Indian-constable Chas. Tucker  left town on Monday last for a  trip to the Interior. It is his intention to visit the various Indian  villages under the Bella Coola  agency, and so familarize himself with the conditions and requirements of the Interior Indians.          Road - superintendent Robert  Jennings and Mrs. Jennings, of  Prince Rupert, spent the week  in the valley.  Mr. Jennings, in company with  Mr. H. G. Anderson, visited the  various road camps throughout  the valley, and inspected the  work accomplished up to date.  John D. Rockefeller's personal  property is worth $311,226,347,  according to the state tax commissioner. Of this amount $285,-  000,000 is alleged to be Standard  Oil stock.  A enjoyable entertainment in  aid of the Orphans Home at  Paulsbo, Washington, was held  at Hagensborg on Tuesday evening. Mr. P. Lauritson and Miss  M. Wall both spoke regarding  the work of the institution. A  splendid musical program was  rendered by local artists, several  items being enthusiastically encored.  A pleasing feature of the entertainment was the singing of  Alf Blakemore returned on  Tuesday from a short prospecting trip up the Necleetsconnay  valley. His trip was necessarily  of short duration owing to the  fact that a grizzly bear had impolitely {carried off his cache of  supplies. Alf is vowing vengeance on that bear.  Walter Ratcliff of Stillwater,  has a gang at work on the Hot-  narko river, where he has already  put in three new bridges and is  now engaged in improving the  trail.    Word of a fire in the Upper  Valley was received in town on  Monday last. Fire warden Lunos  proceeded to the spot with several men and with the assistance  of Max Heckman's road gang,  succeeded in preventing it from  Messrs. E. Peterson and H.  Swanson arrived in town from  the Upper Valley on Tuesday.

Lower Bella Coola: Church  Service, 11 a. m.  Mr. E. Whitehead will conduct  the Service.  Church Service     -   7:30 p.m.  Preacher for Sunday���������Rev.  ������ W. H. Gibson.  A      Rco. T. C. Colwell. B. A., Pastor  _  _  If further  proof  is  required  that   the   country   adjacent to  Bella Coola  abounds  with   big  game it is provided by the recent  experience of a party recently  returned from a two weeks trip  to the head of South Ben tick Arm.  Messrs. A. Houstoun and J. P.  Fell, of Vancouver, are ardent  sportsmen, each having had experience with big game in many  parts of the world.   Determining  this year to give the Bella Coola  country a fair trial, they showed  excellent judgment by first engaging as guides Jesse and Fred  Hendricks, who, from years of  experience on  this   coast have  learnt all there is to know about  the haunts of big game, and can  always be depended on to provide excellent sport. ,.  The party left for the hunting  grounds.in Mr. Houstoun's power boat, Jplly Mac, which handsome craft was left in charge of  captain'and crew to. await, the  return of the hunting party who  wasted no time in getting their  outfit ashore and hitting...for the  headwaters of Taleo River. Arriving at the foot of the .glaciers,  within easy distance of the  chosen hunting ground, the.party  prepared camp. I n c j e m e n t  weather precluded any serious  hunting for several days, in--fact  on only two days-were the.hunt-  ers permitted to get far away  from camp. During the two  days, however, no less than  eleven grizzly bears were sighted, of which Mr. Houstoun succeeded in securing two and Mr.  Fell one.  One of the animals which fell  to Mr. Houstoun'sgun was an immense beast scaling at least 1600  lbs., but the manner in which it  succumbed to a single shot from  that gentleman's 280 calibre Ross  rifle, showed of what that gun  is capable when in the handsof  an adept.  , Both gentlemen were provided  with cameras, and the collection  of excellent photographs secured  will long serve to remind them  of the beauties of this district.  A magnificent spectacle was  witnessed in a tremendous snow-  slide lasting nearly half an hour,  which the party describes as a  most awe-inspiring sight.  Messrs. Houstoun, Fell, and  party, returned to Bella Coola on  Tuesday afternoon, the two first  named leaving for Vancouver  with their yacht in the evening.  Before their departure, the two  gentlemen entertained their  guides and packers aboard the  Jolly Mac, and whilst expressing  the highest appreciation of the  services of all hands, expressed  the hope of a return in the fall,  the scene of the hunt to be decided later by the brothers Hendricks.  9  v  4  4 BEL LA  COOLA COURIER  The Courier  Published Weekly at Bella Coola by  the Bella Coola Publishing Co.

SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1914..  Government Ownership of  ^Railways.  \.  "To adc.pt the principle of government ownership of railways  in so far as the circumstances of  the Province will admit, and the  adoption of the principle that no  bonus should be granted to any  railway company which does not  give the Province control of rates  over lines bonused, together with  the option of purchase." So  reads part of clause 1 of the provincial platform - of.. the Conservative party of British Columbia,  as" adopted at the Revelstoke  convention in September, 1902,.  It is wellknown-How the McBride administration has pledged  the credit;of the province to the  extent .of \ approximately $200,-  000,000" to' assist railway enterprises owned by private individuals..   It is; well known that the  last guarantee was granted to the  Canadian . Northern when that  company was bankrupt and could  have no' hopes  of  completing  their   transcontinental   system  without seeking further aid from  the   Dominion   government.  Everyone, is aware that, in spite  ...of the denial by Sir Richard McBride, the control of Canadian  Northern rates throughout Brit-  . ish-Columbia is to. pass from the  Province to the Dominion ' rail-  . .way commission.  ,     Does anyone know of an instance w)iere the provincial government has an option to purchase any railroad which it has  financially aided?    Can anyone  tell of an instance where any  effort has. been made towards  government ownership of railways ?     Rather   have   we   the  worst case in history of ownership of the government by railways.    Yet this is one of the  most important   planks in  the  platform which the present government  used   to   delude the  people in 1902.  Local Conservatives must surely know of what the platform of  their provincial party consists,  and they must know equally well  that absolutely no effort has been  made to carry out a single plank  of it.       ;  Knowiiig this, they must realize, however humiliating it may  be to admit it, that they have  been fooled and bamboozled for  the past twelve years.  The people are waking up,  however, to a real understanding  of the conditions brought about  by the McBride government.  Public sentiment is aroused "particularly in the North," which  part of the province has been  most unjustly treated in the way  of appropriations for purposes of  development. The Skeena district has contributed very largely towards the revenue of the  province and has had no fair return, and can hope for no better  treatment until represented by  a man who is prepared to fight  our cause honestly and fearlessly,  and who will refuse to be subdued by a frowning glance from  any man, not even Attorney-  General Bowser.  ooooo  I  One of" the ..reasons given.by  Mr: Borden for granting further  assistance to the Canadian Northern Railway Company is that it is  absolutely necessary in order to  save the western provinces from  the consequences of their policies.  Recent developments strongly  evidence the foresight of the late  Hon. R. G. Tatlow and Hon. F.  Fulton, who left the provincial  cabinet in 1909.rather than be  party to a contract which they  saw would be against the best  interest of the province. ���������  O ALUM  The Hon. G: P. Graham hit the  nail on the head in the debate on  the'C. N. R. guarantee. Why  do not Mackenzie and Mann put  their own money into the system? If it is not good enough  for them���������and they are the best J  authorities on the subject, being  the only men behind the scenes  ���������it surely is not good enough  for the people of Canada. The  way to inspire public confidence  is plain.  o     o     o     o     o  Civil servants will be pleased  to know that the Borden government promises to take up the  bill affecting them, sometime  this,session, or next, or the year  after.  ooooo  Much ado is made of the fact  that Rt. Hon. Winston Spencer  Churchill,, first lord of, the admiralty, looped-the-lo'op six times  in a monoplane." Winston always  has been a loop-the-loop artist.  He looped it exactly twenty-  seven times when the Canadian  navy question was under discussion, and we have no reason  to believe that he will not do  some more looping before that  question is finally settled.  i  Early History of British Columbia  '         &y fames Codoille, a fifty-eight'er ���������  Yes, it was a ghastly find, that  which was found near Lac La  Hache on the Cariboo road some  years ago, and although a mere  handful it represented all that  was left of a once, honest, industrious, kind hearted old soul, by  name Hance:  Hance was a German by birth,  a Canadian by adoption, and a  baker by trade. He came here  from Goderich, -Ontario, where  he had by a long industrious  course of toil accumulated a sufficient reward- to'secure to him  and his frau (for they had no  family) a snug home and a small  .<0.___������-_������S������-<0>  A GHASTLY FIND.  cash deposit in the bank.     He  had no cause to fear the wolf at  their door if all things went well  with them;   but here was the  trouble, all things did not go that  way long.    In an evil hour his  big soft heart got the better of  his judgment, he signed for a  friend, and had for years after  to mourn "man's inhumanity to  man."     The immediate consequence of his rash act was his  having to let the accumulations  of years hard toil and thrift, his  cozey home and the society of  his good wife, all pass from him  (for a time at least so,he hoped,  but for ever so it proved.)  The old man arrived in British  Columbia in the year 1863, and  not finding things to suit him in  Victoria or yet on the. Fraser  river, he passed on up the country  to Cariboo. Here he opened out  a small restaurant and supplied  pies and coffee at all hours.. Here  after various ups and downs he  succeeded by his industry, cleanliness and affability, to establish  a good business.and to once more  be able to lay something''by for  a rainy day. Once more the god  of fortune seemed to smile On the  kind hearted old. man, and once  more did h������ lay .out ..plans "for his  future guidance and comfort, and  he once riiore saw in his day  dreams his new 'home; built on  new ideas and experiences, with  its foundations standing on the  rock of good' resolutions not to  sign again. His dear,old frau  sitting by the earth knitting, and  he once more returned <from a  forced pilgrimage a wiser and a  happier man. In this; frame of  mind from morning to night the  old man seemed to live a charmed  life. He. was always cheerful  and happy and ever ready to  crack a joke or bestow a smile on  all he came in contact with.  Is it any wonder then, that he  was looked on as a man coining  gold?   Could one be. surprised to  hear that men with an evil eye  had  marked out this  good old  soul as theirs to plunder if they  could   without   violence ?   For  none but the most depraved could  harm such a good Samaritan as  he.    But we alf know how tenderly disposed such men are when  they are bent on  getting your  gold.    Their motto is to get it  any way and by any means. Thus  time went by, weeks'turned to  months, and the gods still smiled  on Hance and his business.   Old  friends stuck to him and new  ones were ever enrolling them-  selvesuntil, farandnear, Hance's  restaurant  and   its   proprietor  were known to all and patronized  by many,  among   whom   were  some of the best men  in  the  mines.    The dollars rolled in and  the old man looked happy, but  there was-a skeleton in the cupboard.     Let  us   unearth  him,  friends,   and see   what   is   the  trouble.    Here we have it.   The  old man having been fooled once  has lost confidence to a great extent in human nature, and instead of banking his gold or expressing it   ahead of  him,  he  clung to it as he does  to fond  hopes  of   getting   safely home  and being able to enjoy himself  once more.

Patronize Home Industry  "Uneasy lies the  head   that  wears a crown."    The Prince of  Albania has discovered the truth  of the saying.    He has not been  given a chance of showing what  he can do in the way of government.     His boisterous subjects  who never have submitted to the  Turks are not likely to give way  at once to   a   German   prince.  They don't appear to understand  the new system of government  by law instead of force.    They  have been used to the latter so  long that they are unable to resist the temptation to apply it to  the new ruler.     The revolution  is put down to the Turks, but the  Albanians had a hand in it.  and Buy RAMSAYS;  Biscuits, Candy, Macaroni  New Orleans Molasses  Manilla Drips  Imperial Maple Syrup  Ramsay Bros. & Co.

Nothing gives greater promise j  of unanimity if not union among:  churches than the movement of;  the combination of colleges for j  theological training.    In Edmon- j  ton the Presbyterian and Methodist colleges are united, the staffs  of the two combining to instruct  the students of both and there  has been no trouble over the differences of doctrinal teaching.  In Montreal the Methodist, Anglican, Presbyterian and Baptist  colleges have united in the same  way and there appears to be no  difficulty, the arrangements being continued.    When the churches get so far along as to trust  the training of their ministers in  theology to professors of other  denominations, it is about time  to conclude that after all there  is not a great d.;al  separating  them.���������Medicine.
