Stefanson, outlining the object  and expectation of the trip,  stated that he expects as a result  of the expedition to discover an  Arctic continent. '.'I am going,"  he said, "to wipe off the face of  the earth a million miles of unexplored country."  This is about the last unknown  space on the globe. Africa has  now been so thoroughly gone  over that hardly five hundred  square miles exist where trader,  explorer or a railway has not set  foot. Northern Canada too has  few remaining surprises, in fact  the great 'Arctic ocean alone  holds whatever bit of mystery  that the earth still holds from  her people.  Commander Peary, on one of  his expeditions, touched upon the  shore of what he believed to be  a vast Arctic continent. Stefanson will search for this land and  should he find it will add it to the  lands under the flag and government of Canada.

A very enjoyable evening was  spent on Tuesday last by a large  number of residents, who joined  together to celebrate the King's  birthday, by holding a picnic in  the woods close to the Mackenzie school.  After. all the good things  brought by the various ladies  had been done full justice to,  games Were indulged in. by'the  younger folk.

SATURDAY, JUNE 7,. 1913.  :    The Naval Bill  ' Sir George Ross in his recent  speech in the Upper House showed  clearly'that no other course lay  open to the senate than to refer  the naval proposal to the country.  -The, imputation of the Ministerialists that the Liberal Senate  would but echo the view of Sir  Wilfrid 'Laurier-in the Commons;  Sir George scornfully and stoutly  repudiated; at the same time  showing clearly that he was not  to be influenced by such arrogant  threats as uttered by Mr. Borden  at Toronto.  ." "We are not here, "said Sir  .George, "to suit any premier or  leader of the opposition. We are  here to do as we please according  ���������to our consciences. _  That the matter be submitted  to the electors is what Sir George  Ross argues, is right and proper.  4 'When a bill arrives in this House  in regard to which public opinion  is unsettled, then, it is a safe  principle to adopt that we should  take such action as would show  what public^opinion is."  v It is only by such a course,  adopted by the Senate, that the  will of the people can become  effective when confronted with  the irresponsible power of  government majority  House of Commons.  a  in   the  OH! YE OF LITTLE FAITH  Any person who intelligently  appreciates the adaptability and  versatility of Canadians must decline to accept the dictum of the  admiralty and some of our timorous public men regarding the  construction of ships in Canada.  Canada has today a greater  railway mileage than Australia  and New Zealand, or Italy and  Spain combined, and considerably more than all the South  American countries.  Engineering feats of the first  magnitude have been undertaken  and successfully carried out because same were found necessary.  Great trans-continental railways have been laid down because  the development of the.country  demanded it.   '  We built a magnificent canal  system 'in order that our .grain-  laden ships could reach the sea.  These things we have accomplished. Is it not'ridiculous and  even insulting to be told that we  cannot learn to build, ships of  _.  war within perhaps half a century?'  What is to prevent the development on this coast of a great-ship'-1,  building industry, even capable  of turning out-the largest ships  afloat?  We have the harbors, and the  raw material for those industries  which operate hand in hand with  the' construction of war ships,  and notwithstanding the opinion  of the admiralty, human capacity  is. not the monopoly of the tight  little isle in the north sea.  While on this subject it is interesting to note that a contract  has just been let in Montreal for  the building of the largest bulk  freight steamship that,has ever  been built in the British Empire,  and that this ship is not to be  built in England, Ireland or  Scotand, but in the very heart of  Canada, at Port Arthur���������a boat  six hundred and twenty-five feet  long, fifty-nine feet beam, and  thirty-two feet draught, with  triple expansion engines.    There  is not a single battleship of such  great length in His Majesty's  whole navy, and yet we were  told that Canada could not build  even such cruisers, torpedo boats  and submarines as would be alone  necessary in a defence fleet, for  our coast.  On this occasion the Senate  has discharged its duty to the  country in the fullest degree.  It has defeated an attempt by  the Government to foist upon the  people a measure for which it  had no mandate; a measure which  might have far-reaching and  disastrous results, a measure too,  which the Ministers could only  force through by robbing the  members of the liberty of free  speech.  " The mere formality% by which  Sir George Ross' declaration will  be made effective will defeat,  for this session at least, the  government's naval program.  o     o     o     00  It remains to be seen whether  Premier Borden will carry into  execution his threat to appeal to  the country. Possibly he, himself, is willing and prepared to  do so, but it must not be forgotten that he is far from being  master of the situation at Ottawa.  When Hon. Robert Rogers and  his following have spoken, then  will the intentions of the Govern-  If satisfactory arrangements  can be made between the newly  organized company and the  various land owners in the Valley, there is little doubt that  Bella Coola is to enjoy an era of  prosperity which has already  been too long delayed.  The progress,of the Valley has  been steady in spite of hindrances of one kind or another.  A large portion- of the best  agricultural land is handed over  by the Government to a corporation who have held it for years  and may hold it for years longer,  thus depriving the district of the  measure of prosperity that would  ensue were this land settled and  farmed.  The Provincial Government,  with a real estate dealer's perti-  nacity,. is still'holding onto all  unsold lots on the townsite, evi-  dently more interested in prospective higher prices than in the,  immediate progress and development of the town. f ��������� ' ���������  It is in spite of such actions oh  the part of the Government that  Bella Coola has so far progressed.  What-the whole Valley needs  is more people, but- these people  will require land on; which to  make homes, and since' the  Government- is not desirous that  they should occupy lots in the  town, it is clearly up to some  private company of enterprise to  take hold of the surplus land and  put it at the disposal of the public.  During April Britain's imports  increased by $60,000,000 over  those of the corresponding month  last year, and her exports increased $55,000,000. AndBonar  Law, of melancholy mien, declares that under free trade Old  England is going to the^clogs!  For ten years the people of  Bella Coola have been asking for  a place for the landing of small  boats at the government wharf.  This landing the '' Boss ^ has  kindly condescended to construct  and did accordingly. It only  lasted ten days before it came to  pieces. It was last week rebuilt  and now floats admirably at an  angle of forty-five degrees.  It takes ten years to construct  a piece of work that only lasts  ten days.  ooooo  New Hazelton is getting four  hundred dollars for constructing  sidewalks in the town from the  Provincial Government. Bella  Coola has spent equally that  sum for moving the Paisley  bridge less than five feet,  and  an awful poor job at that.  000*00  Crooks built in our roads last  year are now being taken out;  and others built this year will,  presumably, be taken out next.  ooooo,  The bridge over the Bella Coola  River was condemned; nobody  knows who did the condemning,  but the "Boss" stated at a meeting of the Development League  that the'"people" of Bella Coola  had asked for a new bridge. It  is a safe guess that it was necessary to have the old bridge condemned before money could be  obtained fora new one.  ooooo _  ' The man in the street is not  supposed to know what is going  on in the high circle where WE,  US, IT and the "BOSS" reign  supreme.  000 "o     o  Orange peel, thrown on the  floor in theatres and music halls  in London, England, are gathered  up and sold to the different fruit  preserving' establishments and  made into marmalade. The peel  gathered from the high-class  theatres brings a higher price  than from the cheap music halls.  We question whether the taste  of the preserved fruit is any better from the one than the other.  Are You Interested  In Watches and  -J:  Honest poultry dealers make  money by fair means and fowl.
