Petrograd, June 15.���������The advance upon Cernowitz continues,  Russians have occupied the village of Sniatvn 20 miles northwest of the city. Additions to  the previous captures by the  Russians are: 20 officers, 6,000  men, 6 guns and 10 machine  guns. Austro-Hungarian and  German troops along the Galici-  an and Volhynia fronts are proceeding so rapidly that only  small numbers of prisoners have  been captured in addition to  those previously reported. The  total given is about 115,500 as  compared with, approximately,  314,500 announced yesterday.  Petrograd, June 16.--Many of  enemy,units are completely disorganized judging by fact of the  lighting from June 6 to 11. The  Russians captured in yesterday's  lighting 41 officers, 617 men, 24  machine guns and other booty.  Advance of 20 miles by Russians  who have Cernowitz as their objective, is chronicled in the latest  official communication. Having  previously crossed the Dneister  river and taken Horodenka and  Raleschky the Russians have now  driven their men to the left bank  of the river Pruth and captured  the town of Sniatyn, which lies  about 20.miles north.of the Bu-  kowina capital.

When the local cannery started  canning this spring it experienced trouble in operating the  sanitary system, newly installed.  But on the arrival of an expert  the difficulty was speedily overcome and the cannery is now  running smoothly and fish is  coming in at a satisfactory rate.  In a late issue we related in  regard to the unusual weather  jondicions prevailing this spring  and summer that ice formed in  the valley on the morning ol  May 23rd. But worse was to  follow. Similar cold weather  struck the valley again on the  morning of June 10th, when frost  and thin ice were seen by the  early risers. Summer weathei  has arrived now, however, and  crops are repondingaccordingly.  The Courier publishes with  much satisfaction the following  letter received from Miss Ethel  Beatty, daughter of Rear-Admiral Beatty the hero of the great  naval battle off Jutland.  Our admiration for the supreme heroism shown by Beat-  tie's squadron in this battle  should be shown by a hearty response to Miss Beattie's appeal,  and it is hoped that the ladies  who have hitherto done so much  excellent service in such work  will take up this matter-also.  Some entertainment in honor of  our naval heroes may be a fitting  time of collecting funds fcr the  Sailors' Society.  27th April, 1916.  Editor,  Be J la, Coola Courier.  The expedition was to leave  Bergen May 15th, and is expected to arrive at Vancouver in  July, after having visited Washington, D. C. and Ottawa. Their  field of operation will be between  Seattle and Port Simpson.  Iver Fougner having received  information of the coming of the  expedition to the Coast has opened correspondence with its directors with the'view of inducing  the party-to make a call at Bella  Coola and if possible make it its  headquarters. If Mr. Fougner  should be successful in his efforts  no doubt our boys will be offered  an opportunity to gather spruce  cones, a work at which squirrels  have hitherto had exclusive monopoly.

Gammon,  who paid our burg a .pleasant  visit last week.  Mr. Broughton reports that the  preparations for the fishing season are carried on without interruption both night and day at  Namu. The enterprising management of the Draney's Fisheries, Ltd., have built a hatchery  at the lake back of the Namu  cannery and will operate it as a  private undertaking.  At Ocean Falls Mr. Broughton  found things also humming.  There is a lot of work to do but  there is some difficulty in getting  the number of men necessary.  Dr. Quinlan, the newly appointed  postmaster and custom officer,  had just returned from Nanaimo  where he has been initiated into  the mysteries of the duties connected with his offices.  Some uneasiness is being felt  that R. O. Jennings, road superintendent, will suffer from a loss  ol* weight this summer on account of the doubling of the  work, laid upon his rugged shoulders. He has had the whole  district formerly superintended  by Walte  After looking disconsolate and  lying idle about town for quite  i while Fred Hendricks has at  last found a parner in Mr. Larson, a late arrival, and has gone  logging. He wanted to hire a  cook, but'the law compels hand-  loggers to refrain from such  luxuries and they must do their  own cooking.  John and William Nelson, who  make their abode near the Hot  Springs on South Bentink Arm.  were in town last week laying in  I a stock of supplies.  Capt. Stephenson as soon as  iiis spring work was done left  the farm in charge of his better  half and hied himself to Lady  Island ostensibly to look at some-  land. If Mr. Cassidy is obliged  to take him home as he had last  fall we shall probably get Unreal reason for his visit at this  time.  Orville Robinson lias moved into one of Mr. Bryni Id sen's houses  in town. His family will be here,  while he intends to engage in  logging on the inlet.  Sir,���������I am asking for gifts towards the excellent work of the  British and Foreign Sailors'  Society..  The Society is both International and Interdenominational  and is the oldest Organization  looking after the interests of our  Sailor Lads. It has long enjoyed  the patronage of the I'ioyal House  and continues to receive the  regular support of all the Churches as well as the leading members of the Naval, Shipping and  Commercial circles.  Even more important than all,  1 am convinced that the Society  has a real place in the hearts and  lives of our brave Sailors, and as  asmall reward for their splendid  courage and endurance I hope-  that you will generously assist  this glorious enterprise.  I am sure you will agree with  me that it is not only necessary  to maintain this work at its present high level, but also to extend  its activities in other centres  where our Sailors are in urgent,  need of Institutes ashore for* the  effective supply of their social  and spiritual wants. Very truly  yours,  (Signed) Ethel Beatty.  Hanover Lodge,  Regent's Park, N. W.,  Charles Tucker, Dominicn constable, returned on Wednesdf-y  from a two weeks trip to the  wilds of back beyond. He reports that the Indians of Ulgat-  cho and other villages have had  a very prosperous winter. He  timed his visit with..that of  Father Thomas of Williams Lake  who pays the Indians a visit annually at Ulgatcho and Klus-kus  Lake.  The Indians of Ulgatcho, en  the suggestion of Mr. Tucker,  took up a subscription for the  Red Cross fund. The list, headed by Father Thomas, totalled  {536.00. This amount was brought  down by Mr. Tucker and handed  to the Secretary of the Fund.  Mr. Tucker saw several bears  ��������� black and grizzlies���������a large  number of deer and asserts that  game is very plentiful in that  country.  We venture to think that the  above is the first subscription  every taken up among the Indians of Ulgatcho for Red Cross  or any other purpose.  Mr. Tucker says he had a very  pleasant trip and that he ^becomes more in love with the interior every time he visits it.  He says the whole of the Ulgatcho band will visit Bella Coola  this summer.

It will be remembered by most  of pur readers that last fall we  ��������� asked  Hon. Wm. Mansbn  some  -questions regarding the amount  of money spent by the government in Bella Coola for public  - works during the season  then  ��������� virtually at   its  close.     These  questions  were asked   for  the  purpose of allowing the people  of the community, who were acquainted with the main facts in  same occasion, the minister of  public works states that the inspection of the road work done  at the expenditure of $911.75 at  Anaham Lake did not cost anything. People who live in Bella  Coola know that the road-superintendent, in company with two  other government officials and a  packer, were gone quite a number of days on a trip of inspection of this particular work;  that- the necessary horses and  provisions for a party on such an  expedition form a large item.  As an indication of the expenditure involvedand not accounted  for,.we have learned that one of  the party-received a check for  $75 in payment of his services.  In view of the glaring discrepancies in.the accounts as stated  above, we again return to our  contention that each community  should be given an itemized account of all'the public monies  spent within its confines; and we  hope that when the Liberals as-  sume the administration of affairs they will afford,the people  this opportunity of scrutinizing  the accounts.    ,���������"���������  KOVAT  MAKES^RFECT BREAD  this exalted position in the estimate of-his country and the  world.  In  his public career of fifty  years he proved himself one of  the great benefactors of mankind, in that he spread the blessings of civilization into the dark  areas of the world.    He changed  Soudan  from   a country raided  and decimated by slave-dealers  into a happy and   highly prosperous country; for his work in  Egypt he received the appellation of the Friend of the Fella-  hin, in India he created in the  public mind a higher esteem of  British  rule and- strengthened  the loyalty of its multitudes.

Further comments are unnecessary.  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co. Ltd  Vancouver; b. c.  Earl Kitchener.

But our  .representative   thought, otherwise and;failed to give the information, asked for. %  But questions covering almost  -_ the same ground were asked in  the legislature a short time ago,  by Mr. Brewster and answered  by the minister of public works.  ������������������;���������.;������������������':       '      f <���������-������������������"    '-;-���������'. - '  ������������������'���������.'  We published the questions and  answers last week without any  comments.     But this week we  will point out just a few mistakes  made by the minister in giving  the answers   and,  let us add,  these    mistakes    unmistakably  point to others equally great,  __which with the means at our disposal, we may  not   be able to  verify .  The government says $12,905-  -    .05 were-spent on roads, bridges,  etc.,   in  Bella .Coola  Valley in  1915.  The accounts, as given by the  minister of public works, give  only $6,640.91 including repairs  on wharf and $451.10 for the  road-superintendent's travelling  expenses, leaving a total amount  of $6,275.45 ^unaccounted for.  Then again allow us to point  out   another   inaccuracy.      We  took the liberty of asking one  of the foremen who was quoted  as having spent one of the larger sums-for repair work on the  road the amount he had spent.  After consulting his time book  and other accounts, he gave an  amount 26'per cent smaller than  the one charged to him.    Or in  ��������� other words he is put down in  the accounts of the government  as having spent an amount 36  per cent larger than his accounts  show.    This is the only foreman  interviewed   but   it is  not unreasonable   to   infer   that   the  amounts  charged  to  the other  foremen as given by the minister  are equally incorrect.  In the account given on the  his 'death mourn' the loss of  one of the greatest men of this  age.  In the hour of .Britain's great  trial he stood out prominently as  the man  in   whom   every   one  placed the greatest of confidence.  This confidence and high esteem  were not won  because of qualities which ordinarily  fascinate  the public mind.    He was severely cold and distant in manner,  he was no orator, he did not try  to please.    But it was his stern  fidelity to duty, honesty of purpose,   willingness   to    sacrifice,  himself for the common-good in  his country's service, ability as.  an administrator, a soldier and  an  organizer, and the eminent  qualities displayed in the many  difficult positions of trust which  he filled, that had placed him at  Silly Twaddle.  At the head of the News-Advertiser's editorial page for June  4th is   the   following"  effusion  which in our estimation is about  as foolish as anything we have  ever seen in a reputable, journal:  "Mr..Brewster has announced  that the recent session is null  and void, and that all it did is  invalid.    We are informed that  he has, nevertheless, drawn his  sessional   indemnity of- $1,600,  and that his last act as a member of the legislature was to claim  and receive his special allowance  of $1,500 as Ieader.of the opposition   for   this   illegal   session.  Since no one had the presence of  mind to procure an injunction to  keep that $3,100 out of his hands  it is open to any patriot to enter  an action for the return of this  ill-gotten gain."  Mr. Brewster cannot declare  the session null and void and he  has not.done so. .He has asked  the Supreme.Court to pass upon  the question of its legality.  Mr. Brewster had"! right- to  draw his indemnity even if that  H. C. Brewster as Leader.  The last legislative session has  proven that in Mr. Brewster the  Liberal party has secured a leader of  broad   perceptions,   high  ability, undoubted honesty and  strong courage.    In the deplorable state in which the province  has been placed by the present  administration it is reassuring to  know that there is a man of such  a character at the head of the  opposition who, when placed in  power as a result of the next  election, will  be able to guide  the affairs of the province from  the slough of despond and place  them'on that solid rock on which  permanent, prosperity   can   be  built.     ���������'  He has not confined himself to  denouncing the administration,  but he has shown his patriotism  and courage-by the. willingness  to expose himself to the ridicule  and vilification of his-political  opponents by appealing to the  Supreme Court for its decision  as to the'legality of. some of the  acts of the attorney-general and  the standing before law of the  legislative session held after  March 15th.  He is fighting against a powerful  midline and  if,-the Court  should find that the doubts which  he wants cleared have been unfounded, .he  wilf 'have, injured  himself in the estimation of a  great number of people who have  hitherto yielded him their confi:  dence.    Taking risks such as this  requires courage, and only fidelity to duty could prompt the act.  Then again,  the  Conservatives  predict that all sorts of calamities will happen if unhappily the  Court should  declare the Acts  passed at the late session to be  null and void.    We are not competent to judge the correctness  of their conclusions nor do we  feel inclined to under estimate  the   complications   which   may  arise; but this we do know, that  Wholesale  DRY GOODS AND MEN'S FURNISHINGS  Manufacturers  OF "PRIDE OF THE  WEST"  BRAND  SHIRTS,   PANTS,   OVERALLS,   MACKINAW  Send for Catalogue  'MADE    IN    B.

If this question is not settled  now, it is sure to crop up later  and then the consequences will  be more inconvenient and disconcerting if it should be found  that the government and ,legislature had exceeded their authority and committed acts which  would not stand the test of the  courts of justice.

The Vancouver World which  has done yeoman service for the  cause of prohibition in this province, has for this work earned  the gratitude of all the opponents of the liquor traffic.

We admit, that in the case of a politician  of Mr. Bowser's type it proves  nothing. But, nevertheless, it  strongly points to the admission  that if* the liquormen can prove  that they have suffered any  financial losses through being  forced out of business he is willing to-help but.

It would be amusing if it were  not so humiliating, to observe  the way in which some Committees act when they come to the  liquor question. They suddenly  seem to become blind, deaf and  dumb, as if there was no liquor  problem, or as if they thought  that drink was not a great waste  and extravagance, as a brewer's  Gazette has admitted.  Boards of Health will investigate every nook and cranny in  the most painstaking manner,  but they rarely turn their searchlight on the greatest of all causes  of sickness.  Commissions on the high cost  of living never touch on the  drink waste as a possible cause,  and yet it is undoubtedly the  greatest factor in the high cost  of living as well as the greatest  cause of disease and death.  Speaking on this subject Mr.  Dan Poling says: "Congress can  tinker with the tariff until  Doomsday and.not begin to solve  the problem of the high cost of  living." Have you ever stopped  to consider what two thousand  millions of dollars would do toward solving that problem? Do  you think it would help if we  could fincl two thousand millions  dollars somewhere?  Well, we have found two thousand millions dollars worse than  vvasted. John Barleycorn has  nore than two thousand millions  Jollars in his greedy fist���������mone\  taken from the people of the If.  3. In return for this coin, tc  society in general, to the people  from whom he took it, he gave  infinitely less than nothing.  In round numbers the drink  bill of the U. S. represents an  investment in body, mind and  30ul destruction, of ninety-one  dollars for each family in the  country.  When we remember that there  are  unnumbered   families  that  have no drink bill at all, we be-  .jin to form a hazy conception of  the annual drink bill per family  of the drinking families of the  nation.     John   P.  Lennon,   the  treasurer of the American Federation of labor, says that seventy percent of the drink bill of  the U. S. is contributed  by the  American laboring man.    What  does that mean?   It means that  liquor money is generally bread  money, meat money, shoe money,  and money thatought to be spent  for clothing.    It generally means  that some stomachs go hungry  for bread, some feet go poorly  shod, some bodies go inadequately clothed, in order that the liquor  may gratify the unspeakable appetite it creates for strong drink.  It means  that liquor  money is  generally needed for the necessities and comforts of life.  It is time that we help to solve  the high cost of living problem  by making John Barleycorn disgorge. Two billion dollars would  do marvellous things in the  way of filling empty larders and  scanty wardrobes for thousands  SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINING  REGULATIONS  QOAL MINING RIGHTS of the Dominion, in .

HOC  Dealers and Trappers  YIU'HAT person so happy and contented as the prosperous farmer?  \A7HAT person so independent?  \X7HAT ambition more noble than to  be a producer of   the necessaries  of life?  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  rainfa'll 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 i'aim produce from Bella Coola Valley carried 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.  of poverty stricken families.  And what does a man get for  his liquor money anyway? He  uvts a weak stomach, bad breath,  :i mean disposition, the disrespect of the community. He gets  inefficient. He gets fired. He  gets drunk. The chances are  that he gets into his grave years  before his time.  H.

The provincial government has  issued the fifth annual report  of the Agricultural Fairs Association of B. C.  It contains accounts of all the  fall fairs held  by the different  agricultural     organizations  throughout the province in 1915.  In all 55 such  fairs were held.  The one held at Prince Rupert  has been given prominent mention and.considerable space.    As  it is'bel'eved that the farmers of  Bella Coola and the district will  be interested we give the full  report of the fair held at Prince  R'jpsri, Ssptember 22 to 24 last  year:  A very successful show  was  aguin   held  at  this centre,   the  entries   being   more   numerous  than in  previous years ard the  general quality of the exhibits  good.    The general management  was excellent, special credit being due to the ^energetic President of the association.  Fruit.    Some   good   fall   and  early winter varieties of'apples  were exhibited from   the Bella  Cola   Valley,   and   some   good  specimens.of   Pond's Seedling-  plums, were shown, Lakelse and  Kitsumgallum JDistricts winning  the prizes for collections.   Other  good   varieties   were    Graven-  steins,   Alexanders   and   Wolf  River.  The judges recommended that  outside judges  be obtained for  the  district' and   collection ' exhibits, and .that the association  enforce the rule tftat no entries  be received after a certain time.  It is also'advised that the draft  prize-list for the next exhibition  be submitted, to local representatives of the Department, in order  that airy little points that might  Safc"^, Jum 1/t /p  * 'a  i6  |?Eflilp$  For Any Chance or Emergency  The .35 Remington-UMC Sporting Cartridge wili  stop the biggest game.

The number of  entries were far   in   excess of  any. previous-  exhibitions,   the  standard  being excellent.    Exhibitors have evidently profited  by the advice of staff officials,  and the arrangement of exhibits  was highly commended.    Competition was very keen in many  classes and -judging was by no  means easy. ^Some  very  good  collections of produce were seen,  a  marked   improvement   being  noticed in celeiw, onions, turnips,  beets and carrots.    The corn exhibited, mainly from Eella Coola,  was excellent as regards cobs,  size, form and condition:  Grains  from the Interior showed fullness of ear, plumpness, hardness  and color, whilst tubers, roots,  corn and onions from the different plots showed the exhibitors  the desired types for exhibition.  Poultry.   The poultry this year  was. not as well represented as  in the two seasons past, owing  to the fact that poultry men will  not show their birds in an open  tent such as they have had to do  at Prince   Rupert.      They   arel  right in not showing their birds  under these conditions, owing to  the fact that colds are easily contracted, and roup might be picked up and spread in this way.  However, until the Exhibition"  Association at Rupert feels that  <*  it can put up a poultry building,  the poultrymen should co-operate  so as fo make a large exhibit  worthy .of asking for a building  for themselves.

It is really regrettable that it  is again necessary to call the attention  of our farmers  to the  necessity   of   improving   their  stock.    There is an indifference  on this point that is astonishing.  The government in its endeavor  to increase production and de-,  velop farming has given the farmers, free of charge, the means  to improve'the breed of cows and  thus increase the yield and profit  from  them,   but only, comparatively few avail  themselves of  this privilege.
