 IF YOU WANT GOOD SPORT  VISIT BELLA COOLA. EXCEL-  iEMT HUNTING AND  FISHING.  WEATHER REPORT FOR FEBRUARY.  Compiled  by  Mr. C. H.  Urseth, of the  Bella Coola Observatory.  Temperature: Maximum, '13.    Minimum 27.  Rainfall, .f>3 inches..   Snow, 10 inches.  VOLl^-NO. 22  BELLA COOLA, B.C., SATURDAY, <MARCH 13,  1915.  $1.00 a Year  o a  Liberals Hold First Meeting of  the Campaign In the Valley  T.D.Pattulo and John Dybhavn Address Large  ; Griwd at Hagensborg-End of "Boss Rule"  ���������'*Mj' Predicted  Election on Saturday, April 10  Victoria, March 10.���������The Provincial election, it has been decided, will take place on Saturday, April 10. It is understood  that Hon. Price Ellison has already handed in his resignation.  v ^ Trhe ."Liberals of Bella Coola  Vailey''have not been taken by  surprisel!iand that they are well  prepared for the campaign was  evidenced on Thursday evening  at ���������Hagensborg when the first of  a>series* of meetings was held.  Mr.'/B.V Brynildsen,; presiding,  welcomed the large attendance  them two seasons to do it."  Dealing with the necessity of  curtailment of expenses he  strongly condemned the premier  for his expressed intention to  commence by cutting down the  wages of the workihgman to $2  per day.    The province has been  w.eicumcu ^ ..������*,..    mulcted to the amount of $200,-  and expressed regret that as the 000 in one year by Royal Corn-  Liberal convention was called for missions, and in only one in-  ttiatjnight at Prince Rupert, he stance did the recommendation  wis unable to announce defiinite- of 'a commission'result in legitla-  tion, and in that instance the.  legislation was not in the interests of the people, but simply  for the purpose of bringing further power into the hands of the  executive council. The speaker  also dealt with the fishing industry, in which he has had wide  experience, and also the question  of taxation, showing that the  sole hope of the province lay in  securing a larger influx of the  right kind of settlers.  Mr. T. D. Pattullo, on rising,  was received with loud and prolonged applause, wasted no time  on platitudes. He explained that  having taken an active part in  the public life of Prince Rupert  he had gained a clear insight into provincial politics especially  as they affected that city. "During the time that Wm. Manson  has represented us in the Provincial Legislature," he said,  "I know of many things, serious  things.^ which he has done, to the  city, but 1 challenge him or any  Conservative to meet me on the  public platform and show where  he has ever done anything for  the city." He remarked that it  was humiliating in the extreme  to read that the Minister of Agriculture and Finance had been  forced to resign his portfolio  through being mixed up in a very  questionable transaction. "What  will the other provinces think of  us when a responsible minister  ol the crown stoops to petty peculations in the matter of the purchase of a few cows?" Mr.  Pattullo dealt briefly with the  record of the McBride government, showing the appalling results of the reckless extravagance  and the tremendous burden imposed by the bond guarantees to  the C. N. R. and P. G. E., the  latter of whom are now seeking  an   additional  $7,000,000.     In a  t  brilliant and masterful exposition  the Liberal Platform, the  speaker laid emphasis on the  Workman's Compensation Act  as drawn up by "Honest John''  Oliver, and also the policy of assisting and encouraging community settlement. "The government had," he  said,   "brought  ly\*wKp would  be   the   Liberal  standard-bearer.  "~, Mr.3. L. Harris in a brief address extended a hearty welcome  to Mr: Pattullo and Mr. Dybhavn,  and/spoke of the rising tide of  righteous indignation which he  predicted would sweep the pres-  " en ^administration into oblivion.  ^-Mf.'^Dybhavn, who was ac-  corclejdj'a hearty reception, spoke  of-thefnecessity of giving seriods  thought to the political situation  wjth'Ayhich the province is faced  at- the present time. , Dealing  first>with the alienation of the  natural resources he showed that  in-spite of the increased revenue  accruing therefrom, the expenditure had increased beyond all  comparison until today, with the  assets of the province practically  gone, the people are faced with  an indebtedness of some $21,000,-  OOOf "As regards the land of  the province," said Mr. Dybhavn, "the Liberal party if  elected to power can be depended  upon to deal drastically with the  speculator, who has been far too  long, pampered by a capitalistic  government. They intend to  give the speculator the amount  of land he has paid for and take  the rest back to the Crown. The  speculator has had his chance,  and that is the only chance we  will afford him if elected. The  The next man to be given a  chance'will be the actual settler."  Dealing with the matter of  public works thespeaker referred  to the so-called wagon road which  he had travelled that day and  said that if the people of Bella  Coola had been twenty years in  getting such a road as that, then  he pittied their prospects of ever  living to see a good road through  the valley unless they used their  ballot to better purpose than they  had done in the past. He mentioned an example of government road building at Grandby  Bay.'j'4"Their avowed intention,"  said the speaker, "was to build  a #oad between the wharf and | of  ������he smelter. Do you think they  started from the wharf," asked  Mr. <Dybhavn, k,no, neither did  they'finish at the smelter. They  built half-a-mile of road which  started nowhere and went nowhere and is, consequently, of  no use  to anyone, and it took  Allies Achieve  Important Success  British Troops Storm Villiage of Neuve  Chappelle  Paris, March 11���������Official statement: "The Belgium town of  Nieuport has been very violently  bombarded with 42 centimetre  guns, Between Lys and Canal of  Labasse, British army, supported  by French heavy artillery, has  achieved an important success,  it has carried the village of Neuve  Chappelle to east of road from  Estaires to Labasse and has progressed to north-east of this  village in direction of Aubers  and to south-east-in direction of  Bois de Rioz. During the advance one thousand prisoners,  including several officers, were  taken, also capturing .some  machine guns. The German losses were very heavv.  "In Champagne region, enemy  on several occasion on the nights  of 9 and 10 counter-attacked with  great violence, but did not gain  an inch of ground. We have confirmed and broadened our positions on ridges which we have  seized, inflicting very heavy losses on the enemy. On heights  of the Meuse our artillery has  completely demolished a number  of the German trenches."  No German Goods  Liberal Nominations  Prince Rupert, March 12.���������At  the Libera] Convention held here  last night, the following were  unanimously chosen to contest  the coming election in the respective ridings:  : Prince Rupert Riding. T. D.  Pattullo. Omineca Riding, Alex.  M. Manson.  For the Dominion election,  which is expected to take place  during the summer, Fred  Stork was unanimously elected  as the Liberal standard-bearer in  the Skeena district.  Ruse Succeeded  Paris, March 12���������The essential  purpose of operations begun by  using the~ Champagne region on  February 16, says an official  statement, was to attract to this  point the greatest possible number of German forces, and to im-  pose upon them' the greatest  consumption of war materials,  and thus prevent transportation  by the enemy of his troops to  Russia. This purpose has been  completely attained. The Germans had in the Champagne  region on February 16, 119 battalions of infantry, 31 squadrons  of cavalry, 64 field batteries, and  20 heavy batteries.  Dardanelles Defense  Weakens  Copenhagen,  March  11.���������All  Scandinavian ship owners have  agreed to  decline  to transport  goods of German origin  to the!  United States or Mediterranean ������������������  ports in order to avoid seizure by'  French or British warships. j  The  United  Steamship  Com-j  pany and the Scandinavian-Am-!  erican  lines  published  the  following announcement:  "Goods to American and Mediterranean ports must in future  be accompanied by declaration  of origin."  London, March 12.���������Late reports say that the Turkish artillery in the Dardanelles grows  weaker daily, and that the last  bombardment by the Allied warships badly damaged the forts  at Chanak Kalesi. Two big  cruisers spent last night in the  straits protecting vessels engaged in mine sweeping.  down an Agricultural Bill of  great length with many clauses,  but don't miss the joker, viz:  'This Act shall come into force  on such day as may be fixed by  the Lieutenant-Governor in  Council by Order in Council.' "  On resuming his seat, Mr.  Pattullo was acccorded hearty  applause. After a short speech  by A. Hammer the meeting  closed with the National Anthem.  11 Submarines Missing  London, March 10.- A Copenhagen despatch to the Daily Mail  says it is reported in German  naval circles that eleven submarines have been lost since  February 18. The loss of four  of these has been officially adr  mitted, while seven have been  missing for nearly three weeks.  German Submarine Sunk  London, March 11.--German  submarine U-12 has been sent to  the bottom according to official  statement issued tonight by  British Admiralty.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  S. S. Chelohsin made her usual |  weekly call at this port on Thurs-;  day morning bringing a number;  of passengers. ^     j  i  Road-superintendent R. Jenn-|  ings and foreman McRostie are  here to start up public works.  The Necleetsconnay river is to  receive some attention, and the  provincial lock-up is to be raised  on its foundations in order to  avoid the necessity of having to  release any prisoners who may  be incarcerated therein, and  their custodian, in case of a flood,  as has occurred in the past.  T. D. Pattullo and John Dybhavn, of Prince Rupert, were  among the passengers.  Chas. Mills, of Kelly, Douglas  & Co., is making one of his  periodical business trips to our  merchants.  Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Macfarlane  arrived back from the south on  Thursday after an absence of  several weeks.  J. B. Sylvester left for Beaver  cannery by the last south-bound  steamer, taking.with him a number of men to commence preparations for the coming season.  J. Pask of Vancouver, who has  been spending a few weeks in  town went south by the last  steamer. He will return in three  weeks time.  A. Hallet left for Namu by the  last "Chelohsin."  Among other outgoing passengers by Thursday's steamer were  P. Evenson, John Nygaard and  F. M. Brewster, who are employed at the canneries at Rivers  Inlet.  _ - :  The Grand View Hotel is un-!  dergoing a thorough over-hauling j  in preparation of a re-opening in  the near future.    H. Casebeer is  in charge of the work.  F. A. Johnson of Firvale, came  to town on Tuesday and waited  over for thearrival of the mail  steamer from the south.  Rev. T. C. Col well has been  absent from town during the  past week on a visit to the Up-  p������r Valley. The service at the  Mackenzie School last Sunday  evening was conducted by Rev.  Hans Sageng of Hagensborg.  A planked sidewalk, six feet  wide, has been constructed the  whole length of the Indian town.  The local Indians are a progressive lot and take a great pride in  their beautifully situated village.  The "Charles Todd" of the Indian Department returned to  port on Monday with Indian-  agent Fougner, after a lengthy  cruise north as far as Port Simp-  sen, during which many Indian'  reserves were visited. "  The new boat-house is now  completed and the Charles Todd  will no longer be without a proper place to lay up while in port.

To Ensure a "Good Catch"  Get One of the Fnmos-'s  Judgingbythehearty response  with which every appeal for  funds for any worthy purpose is  met, hard times have not yet  reached Bella Coola Valley. Last  Saturday evening a basket social  was held at the Colony Hall,  Hagensborg, under the auspices  of the Young People's Literary  Society, for the purpose of raising funds towards the purchase  of a new organ for the Augsburg  Lutheran Church. The large  number of daintily decoarated  baskets, containing a variety of  good things, prepared by the  ladies, were auctioned off by Mr.  Walter Gallienne under whose  persuasive influence high prices  were general. A capital musical  programme helped considerably  towards the evening's enjoyment and an eloquent address by  Rev. Hans Sageng was heard  with interest.  The result of the evening's en--  tertainment was extremely gratifying from a financial standpoint,  over $10U being passed into the  hands of the treasurer of the  organ fund.  Editor.

SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 1915.  Eye Openers. ~  ' Very few people indeed ever  see a copy of .the public accounts,  and, fewer still have the patience  to'-.wade through the tangled  mess. 'As a'public journal we  feel"'it/our duty to bring to the  notice of our readers a few items  of expenditure that afford food  for serious thought. Note the  following expenses in connection  with, the visit of the Governor-  General:  Illumination o f Parliament  Buildings, ;$il, 712; furnishings  for the occasion, $10,982; K C.  Electric forj illumination and  lamps, $1408^ automobile hire,  $1301; hire of house plant, $220;  D. Spencer,,rent of carpets, $2;-  (562; setting up and over-hauling  billiard tables*" $1212 r-refreshments for employees (no wine  for them) $31; B. C. Horse for  escort, $1000J  Whose furniture store got that'  $10,982, and what became of the  goods after the reception?  Would not one thing that $2662  would more than buy all the carpets necessary for the occasion?  Other items of interest to the  taxpayers are:  Provincial University (nonexistent) miscellaneous expenses  $60,000.       *  This sum has nothing to do  with buildings or pay of professors ; what it has to with is a  matter of conjecture.  Vancouver Progress Club, $5,-  500.'  Vancouver'must be boosted at  all costs.'  Alpine Club, $1500.  Of course mountain climbing  is one of the great industries  brought into existence by the  McBride administration.  Reception to the Flying Legion'  $692.  This must not be considered as  having any reference to a fleet  of hostile air-craft. This "Flying Legion" consisted merely of  California millionaires who visited Victoria. But why should  the taxpayer be compelled to buy  wine for the members of the  government to drink with their  American friends?  Nor is this all.  $74,000 was paid during the  last year to the newspapers of  the province. Of this, only $1200  went to Liberal papers. This  explains why some of the Tory  papers on our exchange table are  able to keep afloat. We have  often wondered what on earth  could justify their existence.  $475 was paid for a ballroom  and lunch for our road-superintendents at convention. They  are so used to dancing, around  the country getting votes and  peddling hot-air that they must  not be allowed to get out of  practice.  For revising the provincial  statutes, a work which should  have been done by the attorney-  general's department with its  largely, augmented staff, Charles  Wilson of Vancouver got $10,000.  ��������� So this is the way the money  goes, and, now the wages of the  laboring man are to be reduced  to $2.00 per day to make up for  this extravagant expenditure.  Surely it is time for a change.  o     o     o     o    p  A Question of Responsibility.  In������ a recent issue of "The  Week," a paper which claims to  be the official organ of the Vic-  torial Real Estate Exchange and  probably is, appears the following:  ��������� "Mr. M.- A. Macdonal'd, the  platform ���������orator of the Liberal  party in British Columbia, thinks,  or at any rate claims that the  Government is responsible for  the failure of the Dominion Trust  Company, and incidentally, for  the loss of several- millions of  invested funds. Now, if Mr.  Macdohald was logical he would  have to reason something like  this, 'The Government is responsible���������the Government is a representative body, constitutionally representing the people���������the  Government is at all times merely an agent, therefore the people  should make good' the losses of  their agent.' "  So says The Week. ���������  Exactly what all this is meant  to convey to the minds of the  readers, we do not know, nor indeed are we worrying what The  Week may have to say on this or  any other matter where the reputation of the McBride government is concerned. We know  full well that. The Week has a  private side door means of communication with the Premier's  office. We know that the President and Editor has good reason  for past favors. Perhaps only  by writing laudatory articles on  Sir Richard and his government  is the paper permitted to continue, as it is only recently that  it announced that it would be  compelled to cease publication  unless it received immediate assistance. Presumably the assistance was forthcoming and The  Week continues to be a "moulder  of public opinion."  With an election probable, it  is not likely that Sir Richard  would allow a faithful friend like  The Week to go to the wall.  We do not intend to take up  the cudgels on behalf of -Mr. M.  A. Macdonald, who is- well able  to take care of himself and still  has time to spare to address  large, public gatherings on matters of public interest, a thing  that neither Sir Richard nor any  of his followers, not even the  editor of The Week, fluent speaker as he is, dares to do. ���������  The Week .does not dare to attempt what it would really like  to do, and would do if only it  could, that is to make reply to  the charges made by Mr. Macdonald. A very great share of  responsibility for-the Dominion  Trust smash rests with the government, especially in regard to  the sums lost by depositors.  The government," by neglecting  to properly enforce the 'law, al-  lowed the public to be swindled.  The government is a representative body, constitutionally representing the people, and the people  are responsible for the actions of  the government. <-There is no  getting away from that fact/  The Week perhaps does not believe that the McBride government is a representative body,  constitutionally representing the  people, and for that reason pooh-  poohs the idea of the people having any responsibility in the  Dominion Trust affair.  The government must share  the responsibility, and the people  must realize that in this matter  as in many others, lies abundant  proof that theirs is the blame  for keeping in power a government that has long since violated  its every pledge. Trodden on  the rights of individuals and  brought the Province, not from,  READ  * tub:  LABEL  BAKIN&POWDER  to be grateful to the government but to, the verge of bankruptcy  When the~public are compelled  to pay the $250,000 bonds, which  The Weeks admits will in all  probability never be repaid they  must realize who is responsible.  ' The government has robbed  the taxpayer by the attempted  illegal purchase of the Kitsilano  reserve," when $220,000 was  handed to the Indians as a "cul-  tus potlatch" and $80,000 went  into the pockets of grafters. The  people will probably soon have  an opportunity of dealing with  their agents and certainly if they  re-elect the same group to go  back to Victoria to continue to  pass illegal legislation, to neglect  to enforce the law, and to squander hundreds' of thousands in  illegal business transactions, then  we ask The Week, who will be  responsible if not the people.  The government is only a reflex,of the electorate who are  responsible for the every action  of the governmet elected.  o     o     o     o     o  Those Submarines.  Sir Richard McBride is much  incensed over the speech delivered by Hon. Dr. Pugsley on the  floor of the House of Commons  on the question of the purchase  of the two submarines for the  protection of the Pacific Coast.  In his reply, Sir Richard covers  a lot of ground but carefully  avoids giving any information  on several points dealt with by  Dr. Pugslev.  ' Sir Richard says, "It was  through the zeal of Capt. W. H.  Logan, the representative here  of the'London.Salvage Association, that the government was  apprised of the fact that there  were two submarines in Seattle,  and through his agency in the  first instance we were sofortun-  ate as to be able to purchase  them." Does Sir Richard then  deny that upon the rejection of  the submarines by the naval expert of the Chilian government  which took place on July 26, he  was immediately interviewed on  the matter of these vessels by  PROJECTED ROUTE OF THE PACIFIC & HUDSON BAY RAILWAY.

MONTREAL        WINNIPEG       VANCOUVER  "\  Australia's Home-Built Navy.  The Commonwealth of Australia is proceeding successfully  and energetically with the building of her own navy, the existing  units of which have done such  signal service in the cause of the  Empire since the warcommenced.  In the month of December a torpedo-boat destroy er was launched  from the government drydock at  Sydney, being the first warship  to be built entirely in Australia.  This first destroyer is to be followed quickly by two other similar vessels, and by the cruiser  Brisbane, the latter a sister ship  to the cruiser Sydney which ran  down and destroyed the German  raider Emden. The Brisbane  will be launched this year, and  i  unless the war ends sooner than  many experts think likely, may  see active service in the present  combat.  A federal government return  reports three thousand dismissals  and ten thousand appointments.  This work works out at more  than three men for one job. And  yet they say the civil service is  not overworked.  Very Much In.  Kaiser William says he has  more men in the field than at the  beginning of war. IN is good.  ���������Windsor Record.

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.

VANCOUVER LAND DISTRICT  \-;:--:..-...;-.':WH'0viS:iPAYij^6-?; ���������:;'\  There is a tendency in some  quarters to regard the tariff as  coming heavily on the manufacturer and importer;    Does it?  Let's see. The duty on cotton,  for instance, goes up 5 per cent.  Who pays it?  The manufacturer? Not much.  The wholesaler?   Hardly.  Well, then, the retailer surely.  No, he does not.  Ther's only one . other party  left in the trade circle, the consumer.  As in every other case, the  consumer or the last purchaser  is paying the shot.  He has no person to whom he  can pass on the tax, so there it  rests.���������-Guelph Mercury.  Canada's Loss.  There is in this country enough'  wealth created at public expense  and appropriated by privileged  interests every year to provide  all, and more than all, the revenue Canada could possibly make  proper use of.���������Ottawa Citizen.  The Limit.  The limit of' 'Boss Rule" has  been reached.. A laboring ,man  of Revelstoke! makes the following disclosure: "On Wednesday  evening last, I visted the Queen  Victoria hospital in our city to  consult with Dr. Sutherland relating to an ailment of my son,  and being informed by one of  the nurses there that the doctor  was attending a meeting in an  adjoining building I proceeded  thence, and at the door of the  latter place was invited to enter  and take a seat for a few minutes  until the doctor was disengaged.  Immediately after my medical  consultation I returned home and  retired for the night. On attending at the provincial government  rock quarry the following morning, where I had been engaged  regularly for some few days pre-  vious, the foreman took me to  one side and informed me that  as I had attended a Liberal  meeting the night before, I must  take my discharge at once."  Comment is unnecessary.  ADVERTISERS-  Now is the time to keep  your - name before the  public.
