Colwell, pastor of the Centenial  church performed the rite, which  ;was witnessed by a fair sized  congregation of friends of the  bride and groom. The church  was beautifully decorated for  the occasion with flowers. Mi',  and Mrs. Gibson will tour the  sound cities, after which they  will take up their residence in  Bella Coola.  The Gourier joins with the  many friends of Mr. and Mrs.  Gibson here in wishing them all  future happiness.  The S.S.

' This is of course in line  with what the whole of Canada  is doing.

This is both our opportunity and duty:,  Torgar Olson and 0. T. Kellog  were up from Tailo where they  have been engaged in putting in  a boom of logs for the sawmill  at Namu.

If we "must have compulsory  military service "let us also have  CDnscription of wealth. It will  be a farce to compel men to lay  down their lives if compulsion is  not at the same time,brought to  bear on those who have made  profits out of the war, they should  ��������� be forced to disgorge their gains  to aid their country.  ooooo  The government has, after  careful consideration, practical-  ' ly decided that in putting into  force the principle of compulsory  service in Canada the better  course is to fix the age of 20  years as the lowest at which compulsion shall be applied. In the  United States the minimum age  is fixed at 21 years.  The experiences of the war  have shown that men under 20  years do not so well resist the  varied and racking hardships as  those of more mature age. No  doubt there are many who believe  it would be wisdom to place still  higher the age at which men  should.be called upon to serve.  Too large a share of credit cannot be given to the heroic class  of young men who, under the  voluntary enlistment system,  joined the ranks at the age of  18 or so.  Behind Conscription.  Reform within the administration - ��������� thorough reorganization,  if not a complete change���������must  also come if Canada is to support  conscription of manhood. Those  .dark forces, which have operated  in the government"to the shame  and degradation of the nation  since the war began, must go.  The government with its record, with the presence within  its cabinet of ministers whose  administration shows not only  weakness but lamentable incapacity, with the shadow of the  "Hon." Robt. Rogers, minister  of public works, over it, cannot  expect the people oi: this country  unitedly and devotedly to accept  conscription of manhood.  Not only must the government  be purified, but the nation must  be made worthy, the sacrifice of  those who oflferi'up their lives in  '    ** .  its defense. Production must be  regulated and administered for  war and not for profit, the rights  of labor must be protected. Unless national service in the best  interpretation of the word be  instituted,'conscription will be  come a mechanical function.���������  ooooo  What Can We Expect?  One of the most absorbing  questions to the public now is  the high cost of living. It will  be remembered that the Liberal  party went out of office in 1911  on an effort to'reduce the duties  on food through reciprocity with  the United States. The people  of Canada did not see fit to adopt  that policy, but since that time  constant and great increases in  the price of food has brought  home to them the fact that the  cost of food is important to every  householder in the country.  The Conservative government,  forced by public opinion, have  to some extent lowered the tariff  bars, but their action throughout  has been one of dilatoriness in  dealing with the ever increasing  high cost of living. The consumer has little to hope, and the  middleman' and the profiteer  little to fear from' ,the Borden  government in its feeble attempt  to solve the rising cost of food  stu:l's.  ooooo  No Sympathy.  The Central Empires have  finally cut themselves off from  the sympathy if not from the  official comity, of every civilized  people under heaven. Mankind  averts its face from Germany  and her wretched accomplices;  and their groaning populations,  sunk in such misery as no Euro-  pearl community has known within living recollection, are now to  feel that in all .the world they  have no friend remaining, no  powerful peacemaker to whom  they can appeal, no quarter to  which they can look for sympathy and help in the task of living  .lown, when the^ conflict ends,  the frightful record of their directors in the policy of insane  warfare.  ooooo  Some More Bowser.  At a Conservative meeting in  Vancouver recently it is reported  that W. J. Bowser said: "The  present government has shown  an absolute incompetency in its  legislation of; the last session."  The taxpayers of this province  are paying this man Bowser  $3100 a year, of this amount $1,-  00 is paid as leader of His Maj-  r*i  baking:  MAGIC  BAKING  POWDER  CONTAINS NO ALUM |  MADE IN CANADA  esty's loyal Opposition, for the  sole purpose of aiding the government by criticizing and so  perfecting legislation. During  the last session over eighty bills  passed their final stage and are  now law. What we want to  know is where was this man  Bowser all the time that this  work was going on? Did he or  did he not assist? If he did not  assist in the perfecting of legislation, which he is paid to do,  then .he is obtaining the $1500  under false pretences and'the  Act providing for the, salary of  the leader of' the Opposition  should be wiped out of our statue  books.. Why should fifteen hundred dollars be given- 'to Mr.  Bowser or any one else for no  services rendered?  ooooo  What Is Wanted Here.  The deputy secretary of agriculture of Pennsylvania has  evolved a simple plan for demolishing the high cost of living.  According to the secretary intensive farming should be carried  on to the very limit if the high  r  cost of living is to be abated.  Farmers in Pennsylvania, where  some of the most fertile fields  in the world are to be 'found,'  should get all they can'out of  their ground.    By varying- the  crops and  a-proper system of  rotation, planting closer and giving individual attention to their  crops,  farmers .can' help   both  themselves and the people. Something of this sort must be done,  for there is no excuse for importing into Pennsylvania potatoes from Haiti and other vegetables that are staples from outside places.   ,  Sounds just like what we get  here in British Columbia as we  import not only,, vegetables but  eggs'-from China.  Let: the Masses Pay.  The Canadian government in  financing the Dominion's participation in the war has followed the path of least resistance.  Sir Thomas White has pinned his  faith on the Customs Tariff and  unlimited borr owingathigh rates  of interest. He has declined to  tap accumulated wealth through  the medium of an income tax,  although the sister dominions,  Australia and New Zealand, have  long ago adopted this form of  taxation. Pressure of public  opinion has forced him to make  a pretence of taxing war profits.  An analysis of the revenue of the  Dominion for the fiscal year ending March 31st, 1917, indicates  clearly the methods employed in  raising revenue which is based  on the principle that the masses  and not the classes shall pay.  Out of a total revenuo'of $228, -  217,270 raised during the year  the Customs Tariff accounted  for $133,531,155, or 58.33 per  cent of the total revenue raised  from all sources.  Excise accounts for $24,253,-  632, or 10.52 per cent.  Public Works, including railways and canals, accounted for  $25,018,997, or 10.96 per cent. -  Post Office accounts for $20,-  031,627, or 8.77 per cent.

'  But out of the total of $228,-  217,270, War profits contributed  only $14,552,383, or the insignificant percentage of 6.58 of the  total.  - In Britain excess profits and  accumulated wealth contributed  60.23 per cent of the revenue.  In Canada excess profits contributed only 6.58 per cent and  accumulated wealth contributed  nothing. Upon the masses the  weight of the burden has been  placed.

There are not .wanting signs  that a Federal campaign will be  fought in the near futsre.   The  Minister of Elections has been  unusually busy of late and this  may be taken-as-an indication  that the   time   draweth nigh.  Doubtless the Hon. Robert is relying on a flag-waving campaign  to carry the Borden administration back to office, but that remains to be seen.    Patriotism  has' ever   been   the  refuse of  scoundrels and Rogers sincerely  hopes  that it  may afford him  refuge, too.   He hopes that enthusiasm in the national cause  will,   more   or   less,   enable  Canadians to forget the wretched  story of official   connivance at  gross frauds against the public  ��������� resulting in  huge commissions  to  political   favorites, "delayed  war supplies, ill-equipped troops,  fancy prices and a general rise  in the cost of living.   Sir Sam  Hughes himself, late minister of  militia, states that, the mostar-  dent agents of the German government   could   scarcely have  been more successful in holding-  up the proper equipment of Canadian forces than his colleagues.  When tlie truth about the war  contracts become fully known,  as it undoubtedly will be in the  course of a parliamentary campaign, there will be such a cleanup of political grafters and tricksters as will serve- as a warning  to all such for a, century, if not  for all time.���������The Week.  Junkers Fear Tide of. Democracy.  According to the correspondent of the New York Times at  The Hague the Junkers of Prussia have issued a manifesto calling upon von Hindenburg to put  a stop to the growing tide of democratic sentiment in Germany  by force.     One  prince   wails:  "When is von   Hindenburg to  raise the fallen Kaiser? "   All of  the Prussian reactionaries agree  that Chancellor von Betthmann-  Hollweg is a double-dyed traitor.  They charge him with playing  to the Social Democrats and with  treason to the dynasty���������meaning  of course, treason to Junkerdom.,  The truth is the Chancellor realizes that the ohd regime is doomed and that unless he deals the  cards   very   dexterously   there  will be a tremendous upheaval  "wh-cirwiil wreck the whole fabric of, Prussian domination over  Central Europe.     So  far  the  Chancellor has been able to hold  his position because evidently he  has been playing, the Kaiser's  game.   While the Junkers are  openly appealing to von Hindenburg���������who hates democracy, and  all its works���������to proclaim a dictatorship    by    force,   Wilhelm  through the Chancellor is trying  to maintain his standing with  the people.   It is a new role for  the Kaiser to play, but there is  little doubt that he is fearful of  the increasing power of von Hin-  denburg..  BRITAIN DESIRES THE PRIVILEGE.  The motherland is providing  for the buaial in single graves of  all her overseas sons who die in  Great Britain. The land necessary is being acquired, and it  will be held in perpetuity at the  cost of the imperial army funds..  All possible care will be taken of  the graves. All expenses .of  burial and of the future care^of  these silent witnesses tothe~loy-  alty, heroism and devotion of,  the empire's- sons who die from  wounds or sickness in the moth-  erland will be borne by the people  of Great Britain.  In a dispatch from London received by the Canadian government announcing the above it is  stated that the British government is confident that it will be  the unanimous wish of everyone  in the United Kingdom that the  British people should be privileged to undertake this charge and  ensure in this way that the last  resting places of the Dominion  soldiers be not unworthy of their  services of the '.cause for which  they have given-their lives.

CZZ)  ���������"THE REASONS for this enviable condition of affairs  are  obvious  to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and reeds 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 pro-  duee from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes...  O ELLA 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.

Jf it is true that all great men  had great mothers, the converse  contains an element of truth.  Did not the kaiser's mother die  insane? He, like some nearer  home who might be mentioned;  has the storey above his chin but  scantily furnished. Although  the dividing line between genius  and insanity has always been  thin, his brain would at least be'J  an interesting study for the  branch of biology known as pys-  chology, ,and his helmet an excellent souvenir for the British  museum.  The really great obstacle in the  way of progress is not autocracy,  but the ignorance of the working  class. Wars and the capitalist  system are 'closely related, and  with them both is associated the  lack of .political intelligence  among the workers. Since the  world could do without all three,  their disappearance would be  highly desirable.  The enemies of .the "human  race continue to be nakedness,  hunger and cold, so let us all  mobilize consciously and correctly an international army tomake  them as extinct as the Pithecanthropus erectus, to, overthrow  the forces of oppression and to  bring about a world fit for the  habitation of man.���������B. ,C.

Having got rid of the  little father (the Czar) they are  now trying to fix' things up so  that the big father (the Kaiser)  will find it easy to take his place.  Mr. Borden has come back,  from Europe with,almost a note  of anxiety in his address and has  put before the House at Ottawa  a resolution to enforce selective  conscription. Canada is a country of mixed peoples from all  parts of the world and conscription is a thing which has always  been abhorrent to us all. Yet it  seems this is no time to go into  discussion on the principles and  theories of conscription. If the  ship is.in a rough sea there is no  use saving the oil to go down  with the ship. If Russia makes  a separate peace with Germany  then weshall indeed be in a rough  sea, and to enable us to save the  Ship of Liberty we must throw  away all prejudices or else sink  in the sea of German Militarism.  In this emergency we are most  assuredly called upon to support  the government in its endeavor  to unite all the resources of the  country in a supreme effort to  aid in the overthrow of the most  terrible menace that ever faced  the worlds  Great England's heart,  Great England's love,  .

The government has, after  careful consideration, practical-  " ly decided that in putting into  force the principle of compulsory  service in Canada the better  course is to fix the age of. 20  years as the lowest at which compulsion 'shall beapplied. In the  United States, the minimum age  is fixed at'___Uyears.  The experiences of the war  have shown that men under 20  years do not so t well resist the  varied and racking hardships as  those of more mature age.   No j  doubt there are many who believe  it would be wisdom to place still  higher the age at which  men  should be called upon to serve.  Too large a share of credit cannot be given to the heroic class  of young men who, under the  voluntary enlistment system,  joined the ranks at the age of  18 or so.

The government with its record, with the presence within  its cabinet of ministers whose  administration shows not only  weakness but lamentable incapacity, with the shadow of the  "Hon." Robt Rogers, minister  of public works, over it, cannot  expect the people of this country  unitedly and devotedly to accept  conscription of manhood.  Not only must the government  be purified, but the nation must  be made wor^hj^tjie sacrifice of  those who ofl_&ivup their lives in  its defense.

Sir Thomas White has pinned his  faith on the Customs Tariff and  unlimited borrowing at high rates  of interest He has declined to  tap accumulated wealth through  the medium of an income tax,  although the sister dominions,  Australia and New Zealand, have  long ago adopted this form of  taxation. Pressure of public  opinion has forced him to make  a pretence of taxing war profits.  An analysis of the revenue of the  Dominion for the fiscal year ending March 31st, 1917, indicates  clearly the methods employed in  raising revenue which is based  on the principle that the masses  and not the classes shall pay.  Outof a total revenue of $228,-  217,270 raised during the year  the Customs Tariff accounted  for $133,531,155, or 58.33 per  cent of the total revenue raised  from all sources.

The  Minister of Elections has been  unusually busy of late and this  may be taken as an indication  that the   time   draweth   nigh.  Doubtless the Hon. Robert is relying on a flag-waving campaign  to carry the Borden administration back to office, but that remains to be seen.     Patriotism  has ever   been   the   refuge of  scoundrels and Rogers sincerely  hopes  that it   may afford  him  refuge, too.    He hopes that enthusiasm in the national cause  will,   more   or   less,   enable  Canadians to forget the wretched  story  of official   connivance at  gross frauds against the public  resulting in  huge  commissions  to  political   favorites,   delayed  war supplies, ill-equipped troops,  fancy prices and a general rise  in the, cost, of living.    Sir Sam  Hughes himself, late minister of  militia, states that the most ardent agents of the German government    could   scarcely   have  been more successful in holding-  , up the proper equipment of Canadian fprces than his colleagues.  When the truth about the war  contracts 'become fully known,  as itjundoubtedly will be in the  course of a parliamentary campaign/ there will be such a cleanup of political grafters and tricksters as will serve as a warning  to all such for a century, if not  for all time.���������The Week.      : ��������� -'  "^^^'^^^^^-^^--r^TTrr^n-y-_r-irntgT_ i.  Junkers Fear Tide of Democracy  According to the correspondent of the New York Times at  The Hague the Junkers of Prussia have issued a manifesto calling upon von Hindenburg to put  a stop to the growing tide of democratic sentiment in Germany  by  force.      One   prince   wails:  "When  is  von   Hindenburg to  raise the fallen Kaiser?"   All of  the Prussian reactionaries agree  that Chancellor von Betthmann-  Hollweg is a double-dyed traitor.  They charge him with playing  to the Social Democrats and with  treason to the dynasty���������meaning  of course, treason to Junkerdom.  The truth is the Chancellor realizes that the old regime is doomed and that unless he deals the  cards   very   dexterously   there  will be a tremendous upheaval  which will wreck the whole fabric of, Prussian domination over  Central  Europe.      So   far   the  Chancellor has been able to hold  his position because evidently he  has  been  playing the  Kaiser's  game.   While the Junkers are  openly appealing to von Hindenburg���������who hates democracy,and  all its works���������to proclaim a dictatorship    by    force,   Wilhelm  through the Chancellor is trying  to maintain his  standing with  the people.    It is a new role for  the Kaiser to play, but there is  little doubt that he is fearful of  the increasing power of von Hindenburg.
