Open Criticism Improves
Legislation.
• The session of the House recently adjourned,  was marked
by the adoption of an unusally
large amount of important constructive legislation.   The government has delivered practical-
ly the whole formidable program
promised in the Speech from the
Throne ar.d in some noteworthy
respects  has   gone   beyond it.
That program, it will be recalled,
foreshadowed measures on land
settlement and thet improvement
of the agricultural credit scheme,
irrigation, the encouragement of
the mining and smelting industries.' Civil Service reform, equal
guardianship of infants and the
extension of   the   franchise to
women.     All  these have been
'   passed and in addition to them
the House also adopted legislation creating a Department of
Labor   and   systematizing the
financial service of the province
in the place of the haphazard,
unbusinesslike. methods   which
have prevailed up to this time.
The session was notahle, also,
because it disclosed for the first
time the actual relations'between
the two subsidy-hunting corporations and the province. The
scandalous revelations in the inquiry into the P. G. E. with.their
sensational climax, showed how
necessary it was to the welfare
of the province for a cleaningup.
These buccaneers have exacted
their last cent from British Columbia.
The usefulness of a spirited
Opposition was also demonstrated. The spectacle of numerous
divisions following lively debates
in which government measures
Were dissected and criticized by
not only the Opposition but by
government supporters, was
something new in a British Columbia legislature, where for
years the only opposition consisted of two lone members. The
action of followers of the government in freely criticizing
ministerial measures indicated
that their views were not caucus-
bound. Open criticism improves
legislation from,which the country is boundfto benefit.
To Investigate B. C.
Scandals.
Mr. Brewster has decided for
a political "house-cleaning" in
this province. He finds that
there is a cloud of scandal and
suspicion hanging   over  public
men in British Columbia and he
desire to dissipate this cloud as
quickly as possible. For this
purpose he has secured an amendment to the Public Inquiries Act
which gives wide powers for the
holding of investigations into
"any matter connected with the
good government of the province" and especially into the payment of campaign funds. He
proposes that this amendment,
which is now a law of the province, shall be made operative
immediately and that an investigation shall take place into all
the allegations concerning campaign funds, those who pay them
and those who receive them.
This is action that the people
of British Columbia have waited
for ever since the beginning of
the legislative session. Under
the Public Inquiries Act the commissioners appointed by the
Lieutenant-Governor-in-Council
have drastic powers. According
to Section 12 any witness refusing to be sworn, to answer questions, to produce documents or
books or papers shall be held to
be guilty of contempt and the
commissioners may deal with him
exactly as if they were Supreme
Court judges. "And all gaolers,
sheriffs, constables,' bailiffs and
'other police officers shall give
their aid and assistance to the
commissioners in the execution
of their office."—The World.

W^hat kind of a scandal is this?
"Stay-at-home colonels are paid
$15 a day while fighting colonels
receive but $6 a day."
It is most scandalous said a
member in the Dominion House
that a colonel who went around
with fuss and feathers doing
nothing gets $15 a day while a
colonel at the front facing death
every minute of the day gets
only $6. If any preference is
given, the fighting colonel and
not the tea party colonel should
get it. •>

1 Tlie Courier has protested before against food waste and we
do so again. Too much emphasis
cannot be laid upon the vital importance of guarding against
waste of food stuff. There is
little doubt that the world's food
supply is short and that is one
reason for the existing high
prices, but waste in food stuff
will only aggravate the trouble
and prices will go still higher.
We believe it is the duty of every
one to do all within their power
to prevent waste, not only from
a selfish motive but as a patriotic
duty.

A Record Session.
After 67 sittings which were
all lengthy and full of parliamentary "ginger," the legislative assembly at Victoria has adjourned until August 14.
Since March 1 the legislature
has received almost 80 bills, and
with the exception1 of two all
reached final stage.   Itissaid by

Town planning and building

chemical engine. The hall has

additions, and new buildings are
in evidence at almost every cannery. The canners ought certainly to be given a word of
praise for their endeavors to
Westernize the Indians, as they
one and all seem to be doing
their utmost for the comfort of
the natives. New, sanitary dwellings are in evidence, everything
being finished up-to-date.
The new cannery on Schooner
■Passage, The Provincial, is the
last word in up-to-dateness. Its
popular manager, Mr. R. Johnston, intimates he is out to can
all-the salmon that may come
his way. The system installed
is the latest Sanitary Can Co.'s
patent^ and everything throughout the plant speaks of efficiency
and the outcome of a wide experience.
The weather conditions, which
seem to have such a marked
effect on the season's catch, are
so far very good and should they
continue during the ensuing
month's will undoubtedly ensure
a large catch, which at the pres-
entcrisis will be doubly welcome.

\X7HAT person so happy and contented as the prosperous,, farmer?
lUHAT person so independent?
1HJ'HAT ambition more noble than to
be a producer of  the "necessaries
of life?
Bella Coola  farmers are independent,
they are strangers to hard times.
View of a ranch in Bella Coola Valley.
CZD
'"THE REASONS' for this" enviable condi-
■*■ tion of affair's- 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. .
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.

Substitute for Wheat.
There has been developed in
South America a new variety of
beans which contain all the food
elements of wheat and four times
as much can be produced to the
acre. It is called "mulatinho."
Over 2000 tons of it were shipped
last year from the state of Sao
Paulo to the different states of
Brazil and to foreign countries,
especially to Europe for the feeding of Allied soldiers, they .declare that the soldiers in the
trenches are growing fat on it.
It is expected that an immense
acreage will be planted this season, and that the product will
come into direct competition with
wheat. It is said that the flavor
of these beans is so fascinating
that they jire preferred to any
preparation of .wheat.
Good Old Times.
Scarcity of potatoes makes us
think' of times long ago when
the all-important tuber was
known only to American Indians
and wild swine or other wild
animals that grubbed it up. Our
Saxon ancestors got along without potaloes, corn, peaches, turkey, rice, bananas, oranges, lemons, sugar and tobacco. No
chocolate bon-bons, no cigarettes
in those days!   No tea or coffee

Was there no good butter? Some
of us get along without a number of these things, too; but our
ancestors were not tantalized by
impossible prices ticketed on
them. There could not have
been any H. C. of L. problem in
such  a time.     Eggs and milk
the sight of them heaped up in  were probably almost free.—The
