Yesterday several  rhombs were dropped on Nancy,  |St. Die and Belfort by German  [aeroplanes operating singly, at  fNancy only several civilians suffered by the attack.  Austro - German Forces Hurled Back  Petrograd, via Paris, June 18.���������A notable success was scored by  the Russians on the Dneister above Zurawano on June 14-15  which resulted in the capture of 8,544 men, including 202 officers, six big guns, 21 machine guns, caissons and other booty,  according to an oflicial statement issued last night. Austro-  German forces are also reported to have been hurled back on  the same front further to the south-east, while another force  which crossed the Dneister above Nenziowa was destroyed.  Italians Capture  Observation Post  Not One of Its Defenders Escape,  Geneva, June 17.���������-Official despatches received here from Lai-  bach by the Geneva newspapers  says the Italians have , stormed  an   Austrian    observation   post  near Buchartein in the Cadorra  Alps and that the strong Austrian  detachment   defending it   was  either killed  outright or  made  prisoners, not one escaped.    The  despatches add that the locality  around Monafalcone have been  bombarded by artillery and that  the Italians advance guard are  nearing Komon.    Three lines of  railways  are   declared  to have  been   partly   destroyed   by  the  Italian  troops.     The Austrians  also have been driven from the  forts of Ternova according to the  despatches and several hundred  Tyroleans have been made prisoners.  Britain's War Total  is 3,200,000 Men  London, June 16. ��������� The total  number of men for the army and  navy sanctioned by parliament  for service so far in the present  war is 3,200,000.  "This number will not be exceeded without authority of parliament, "��������� says Premier Asquith,  thus setting at rest rumors that  other forces had been mobilized  without public knowledge.  Progress in the  Big Drive  Paris, June 18. ��������� The official  communication issued last night  by the war office describes intense activity along the French  front, the allied forces delivering powerful attacks and the  Germans counter attacking furiously. To the north of Arras the  French have carried several lines  of German trenches and are  making marked progress toward  Souchez. Heavy losses on both  sides are reported.  Italian Fleet Sail  Under Sealed Orders  Rome, June 18.-'-The Italian  fleet sailed under sealed orders  late Tuesday night from the seaport of Taranto, south-east end  of -Italv.  | Big Drive Commenced  Says Military Experts  London, June 17.���������Military experts now say that the big push  forward has commenced. Advices from parts of western battle-  front go to show that the Allies  have started great forward drive  which is expected to shatter the  German lines. The fact that a  line of trenches was lost at Fes-  tubert does not in the opinion of  experts mean much. Their view  is that this attack by the British  was more in the nature of a feeler to the strength of the enemy  rather than to occupy the position  permanently.  German Army Withdraws  Berlin, June 15, via London.- -  The official announcement from  army headquarters states that  the Garman forces which invaded  the Baltic provinces of Russia  have retreated. The statement  says that the German wing southeast of Shavli has withdrawn to  the south toward the Beisagola-  Zoginie line.

The Italians then  blew up the track and took the  train intact.  Submarine Sunk  London, June 17.

Christian De Wet, one of the leaders  of the South African rebellion,  pleaded not guilty to a charge of  high treason, but guilU" to a  charge of sedition at the opening  of his trial at Bloenifonteiu. The  indictment against him is a long  one covering alleged rebellious  attacks and seditious utterances.  discourtsey in obliging people to  wait so long for her, she staid  until about 12 noon.

The Prince Rupert Daily News  contains the cheering information that the news of the death  of Captain Donald M. Moore  from wounds received in battle  is not true. ;  He states he has been slightly  wounded and was at the time  convalescing at a hospital. He  also told that Mr. A. R. Leese,  who was reported missing two  weeks ago, had met his death in  fighting the enemies of his  country.  Archibald Richard Leese was  well known in Bella Coola. He  came here almost directly from  England and engaged in teaching  in the public schools, first at  Hagensborg and later at the Mackenzie school.  He was considered a zealous,  conscientious and able educator,  though somewhat eccentric. He  took up land in the upper part of  the valley. Where he resided  when the war broke out. He  immediately left everything and  went to the front. He was the  first to enlist from the valley.  Fred Grant, son of Mr. and  Mrs. S. Le C. Grant, Aytoun  Ranch, left for the scene of war  last week. That he may return  safe and sound is earnestly hoped  for.  Mrs. Grant is slowly recovering from a long and severe sickness.  ' A party of about twen ty young  people gathered Saturday night  last week to a strawberry, social  at O. T. Kellog's home in Sal-  oomt Valley.

An invitation to the younger people is especially extended.  Cannery boat "Chinook" Capt.  McDonald, of Manitou cannery,  Kimsquit, called here last Tuesday. M. Fredrikson, H. Kasp-  erson and S. Svenson went out  on her to engage in fishing at the  Manitou cannery.  F. A. Johnson is around and  actively at work again after a  long confinement owing to a  broken leg. He with a crew of  men is engaged in repairing the  wagon road above the Canoe  Crossing. He has also been superintending the work of installing a ferry service from the  wagon road to some settlers on  the opposite side of the river.  The land thus connected with the  road is especially fertile and has  been settled by a few pre-emp-  tors, among whom we learn are  H. Casebeer, E. Oien, M. Namo-  thy and P. Kenyon.  Mr. Walter Ratcliffe has another crew of road workers above  Stewey engaged in extending  the road further up the valley.  He intends to construct a fairly  good wagon road to Heckman's  ranch this summer.  Tom Engebretson and family,  John H. Shafer and Jacob J.  Lunos, came down with their  packtrains a week ago yesterday,  from Tudistan, back of Anaham  Lake. We regret to learn that  Mr. Lunos is seriously ill at his  farm above Noosatsum.  Inspector of Fisheries  Interviewed.  Mr. M. W. Marvin has received  appointment as forest guard for  the upper half of the Bella Coola  district. Mr. J. H. Lunos is the  forest guard for the lower part.  Mr. A. R.

PATTULLO.  liberal candidate for Prince Rupcit Riding.  J. T. Williams, inspector of  fisheries, arrived here on Thursday last week on the "Thomas  Crosby." In an interview by  one of our staff he said:  "The fishing for spring salmon  is now in full swing on the  Skeena and Naas rivers as well  as at Bella Coola. While the  catches on the Naas and here are  above the average, the one on  the Skeena is very poor. There  seems to be a goodly number of  spring salmon outside; but for  some reason undiscovered they  do not enter the river. It is  hoped that they will finally do  so."  The fishing regulations on.the  Skeena have been altered to suit  the local conditions, in respect of  the number of independent licenses to be issued. The general  regulations limit the number of  such licenses to suit the conditions and circumstances of the  different localities.; and no one is  allowed a license to fish for  salmon after that limit has been  reached. It was found that a  number of settlers, wrho are engaged in the opening up and developing the resources of the  province, was in consequence of  these regulations deprived of a  chance to earn money to help  them tide over the years of pioneer life; and, therefore, to give  them all an equal chance, an order was made thit-there should  be no limit to the number of  licenses issued on the Skeena  river. And the result is even  better than was expected, inasmuch as it satisfies everybody.  Licenses are issued to all applicants who are British subjects,  except in the case of settlers who  get licences whether they are  British subjects or not.  It is the policy of the Department to give preference to the  settlers, but of course the claims  of the Indians must also be recognized. No Japanese, Chinese  or Indian can get an independent  licence. To meet the requirements of the canneries engaging  fishermen other than whites, a  limited number of licenses called  "attached licenses" are allowed  to each cannery, according to  capacity. From these the Japanese and Indians get the privilege to fish for salmon by applying at the cannery.  About the 7th of next month  Bella Coola may expect a visit  from the highest officials in that  branch of service more particularly related to the fisheries in  British Columbia waters. W.  H. Found of Ottawa, superintendent of fisheries; D. N. Mclntyre  of Victoria, deputy commissioner  of fisheries; F. H. Cunningham,  chief inspector of fisheries of  British Columbia; and John T.  Williams, inspector of fisheries,  will call here on their tour of inspection for the purpose of ascertaining the advisability of  increasing the number of independent licenses, and to devise  plans for the benefit of the fisheries generally.

Lilce the havoc caused by the  ��������� bursting  of  a. high   explosive  shell within their ranks, meta-  . phorically speaking, has the effect of the publication of the  "Crisis in B. C." been, to the  Government circles.    Those af-  fected are now busily engaged  in getting at the irreverent Reverends who hurled it at them.  They are, for the purp6s'e Qf  defense, assuming a superior and  pitying attitude," bewailing the  -,   credulity and guilessness of the  foolish ministers  who   venture  into the, to them, unfamiliar and  . mystical fields of politics.   The  unscrupulous Moses B. Cotsworth  has completely pulled the wool  over their eyes, and is now using  ,   them to heap revenge upon the  Government, who after a thorough acquaintance with  Moses  have found him out to be no better than he ought to be.  , The impression   the ��������� Government and their organs are trying  to create is that ministers of the  gospel are less astute, less intelligent and capable in  practical  affairs than   ordinary lawyers,  politicians and business men, is  not according either to fact or  reason.    Ministers are,   in the  performance of- their duties, not  called upon only to preach the  truth as found in the Bible, but  also to superintend and in many  cases  administer the affairs of  the church, deal judiciously with  conflicting views and  interests  ^mong church'/members, in fact  deal with a multitude of practical administrative problems and  with many delicate conditions.  And in their choice of calling and  the nature of the same we look  - upon the ministers of the gospel  as highly moral and intelligent  men, leaders in every good cause,  examples for the others to follow,  so that the name of their great  leader may not be dragged in the  dust.  The Governinent has in the  Ministerial Union of the Lower  Mainland a foe worthy of its  steel, and one which it must defend itself from in a manner different than the one hitherto  pursued.  We would suggest to the Government first that it read the  Courier and then act upon our  advice, th#t it comply with the  demand of the Union to have a  committee of non-partisan busi-  As far as our knowledge extends, all the countries of Europe  have conscription except Great  Britain.    It has been a source of  considerable pride to the British  that their loyally and patriotism  were of such a high order that a  oufiicient number of volunteers  could always be relied upon to  rise to the needs of any occasion  which might arise.  Great Britain being separate  from the armed nations of the  continent by a strip.of water has  felt secure from invasion and for  that reason has not felt the heed  of great   standing,  armies- and  a whole nation held in reserve  for war.     Her  comparatively  small standing army has rather  been in the nature of a police  force to preserve peace throughout the Empire.    But now conditions are altered.    A crisis has  arisen through which the freedom  not only of the British Empire,  but the whole of Europe, if not  the world, is seriously threatened.  Victory for the Germans would  mean the spread of the German  military system and the domination of the German spirit, of subjugation by force wherever her  influence reached. All the nations  of Europe would find themselves  in  similar   circumstances  to  Schleswig-Holstein, Alsace Lorraine, and Poland.   This danger  being real, Britain and her Allies  are pouring out the blood of their  sons, and spending their treasures' like water on the field of  it has not already arrived, when  the limit is reached.   The noblest  and the best in the land,have offered themselves, been accepted  and sent to the front.    But the  conflict is still raging and even  fiercer than ever; the end is not  in sight.     Greater exertions if  that is possible must be made.  The   reluctant   and   indifferent  must share the dangers with the  volunteers and be drafted into  service.    The, mother of parliaments, the promoter and defender of liberty and civilization is  calling her sons to her banners,  and all who  have enjoyed   the  fruits   of   the   sacrifices   made  through the heroism shown by  former   champions' of   human  rights, must either come voluntarily or be forced to join  the  colors in order that freedom may  not perish from the face of the  earth.

The Prince Rupert Empire, which feels called  upon in return for favors to pay  him empty compliments, heads  an article eulogistic of Mr.-Man-  son, " Fair,' square and above  board."  Any one  could have money, that would  ' strengthen the power of the government and acquiese in its designs upon the country. And  Mr. Manson has proved himself  the most servile of the supporters of the government, and in  return he has gotten almost any-,  thing the government felt it could  give. In that way Prince Rupert  finds him useful as a representative, but at the expense of its  self-respect.  Our experience in dealings  with Mr. Manson has left us without any respect for him. Our  regard for some of the members  of the McBride government is  not very high, but it is waj  above our estimate of Mr. Man-  son which is probably less than  we have for any public man we  ever met. He is absolutely use  less to us as a representative.  For Results Use  .

It was a  verbatim report of a speech made  by the Kaiser in 1908 to his generals,  admirals,  and the chiefs  of the federal states. The speech  took two hours and a half-to deliver, and was discussed for five  hours during the night.   In this  speech the Kaiser declared war  against England.   The document  was put before the Cabinet, and  after inquiries they accepted it  as true.    In  the course of the  declaration the Kaiser used these  significant words:    "We   shall  strike as soon as I have a suffici  ently large fleet of Zeppelins at  my disposal. I have given orders  for the hurried construction of  more airships of the improved  Zeppelin type.  "When these are ready we shall  destroy England's North Sea,  Channel and Atlantic fleets,  after which nothing on earth can  prevent the landing of our army  on British soil and its triumphant march on London." The  Kaiser also said in conclusion:  "With Great Britain and France  in the dust, with Russia and the  United States at my mercy, 1  shall  set a  new  course to  the  destinies of the world, a cour-e  that will ensure.to Germany for  all time to come the leading part  among the nations of the globe."

There is no adverse.opinion expressed through press, public  meetings or correspondence to  warrant the Government in  maintaining it is necessary to ask  for a mandate to go on at tin's  time.  And Dr. Young feels also that  there is no question on this score  as he says the people will certainly grant that mandate to the  Government to go on.  It is pretty safe to say that if  Dr. Young had any doubts as to  the willingness of the people to,  support the government in its  efforts to carry on the war he  would not be so anxious to have  an election at this time, one and  one-half years before the expiration of its term. It is only taking advantage of the distress of  the nation to grant the Conservatives an extended lease of  power.  Thus is the patriotism of the  people exploited by the politicians to the furtherance of their  personal profit, power and position.

Dr. Sarolea, the eminent Belgian scientist, in his, speech at  Vancouver the 28th ulto, and of  which an extract was given i'n  the Courier two weeks ago, also  had this to say:  "Terror has been practiced  as a system of Government in  Belgium by the German invaders, "% declared the speaker,  and then cited several examples  of where citizens had been shot  because of their protests against  the German invaders.  "Before the war Belgium boasted of the greatest collection of  art treasures of any country of  its size in the world, and although  it had been the cockpit of Europe  and, the crossroads of the continent and the warfield of the world  for 600 years, yet for six hundred  years the arms of Europe had  respected the monuments of art  and architecture in that country.  And what all the armies of Europe have for 600 years respected, the German Huns have  destroyed in two months���������an  irreparable loss to art and civilization."  The speaker then went on to  say that if the Germans had been  so ruthless in their destruction  of treasured art it may be easy  to judge how much more ruthless  they had been in their destruction of human life. And today  after all her misery, privation  and suffering Belgium still remains the champion of European  freedom," concluded Dr. Sarolea amid thundering applause.

Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  "-THE 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 carried away  over twenty first prizes.  Fur Sales Agency  Farmers' Associations.

[���������/} ���������y^y:  The chief aim of the association  being  to   increase, agricultural  p rodu ction by disseminating  knowledge of the most approved  farming methods, it isproposed  to adopt the. plan now being fol-  .lowed under varying auspices in  numerous parts of North America, of employing a staff of field  agents to^ carry information to  farmers on their farms and induce them to conduct their operations on lines  recommended  by the department of agriculture.

Here are a few sentences given  in sententious form that illustrate the conclusions arrived at  and the counsel given by Dr.  Shutt, Dominion chemist:  Rational farming is "mixed"  farming.  Barnyard manure is the most  effective of all fertilizers.  The liquid portion of the manure is the most valuable.  Use- sufficient litter in the  stables to absorb the liquid.  The amount of manure on a  farm being'insufficient, frequent  light dressings are advisable  instead of larger ones at regujar  intervals.  The manure is most advantageously applied for the root or corn  crop in the rotation.  It is not wise to bury the manure, a shallow ploughing under  is more advisable.  Manure is worth most when  first voided.  Rational farming involves a  rotation of crops.  Investigation has proven the  high manurial value of cloyer,  alfalfa and other legumes.  The lesson is���������grow a leguminous crop in the rotation, as all  other crops, save the legumes,  leave the soil poorer for their  growth.  Commercial fertilizers cannot  be depended upon profitably to  maintain the soil, hen.ce their exclusive use is discountenanced.
