Jacobsen after securing what  fur was held by the local merchants departed for other fields of  operation.  A. H. Tomlinson, H. E. Walker and Albert Hammer had been  fretting and stewing around  town for several days awaiting  a lull in the prevailing gale to  allow them to take a launch to  carry them to Namu. They were  all very anxious to reach Victoria  in time to attend the Central  Farmers' Institute, which was  held there from the 8-10th of  this month. But the wind did  not yield in intensity until the  steamer arrived.

In view of the small attendance  and the necessity of carefully  formulated plans for the future  efficiency of the committee, a  temporary committee on organization was after some discussion  elected. As members of this  ���������ommittee the following persons  were selected: Wm. Sutherland,  chairman, Frank Broughton and  C. Carlson.  It,was suggested that the permanent committee when formed  should include in its work also  the collection of contributions to  the Red Cress and Patriotic  Funds.  It is the intention that the organization committee elected  will meet immediately, and as  soon as it is ready to report a  public meeting in some centrally  located place will be called, so  that everybody in the valley may  have an opportunity of taking  part in the proceedings.  Without transacting any more  business the meeting adjourned  shortly after 9 o'clock.  Partisan feeling does not run  very high in Bella Coola this  year. The result of the by-elections in Vancouver and Victoria,  with singularly few exceptions,  is giving general satisfaction.  Everybody thinks there is need  of a change in government.  ; F. McRae, timber inspector,  came in on his launch on Sunday  night; he'curtailed the constable's  visit at Ocean Falls by offering  him a ride/which he gratefully  accepted. -  In the absence of any information regarding the whereabouts  of Lieut. Donald Moore it has  been generally believed that he  had been killed in battie.  From Prince Rupert Daily News  we learn with deep satisfaction  that such is not tire case, but that  the" war department reports him  as being a prisoner of war in  Germany.  B.

It is feared  that the state of beinga bachelor  has become chronic in his case  as he seems to prefer to be alone.  The renewed operations at  Ocean Falls have had their influence on our community already.  Quite a number of the Indians  have gone to Ocean Falls, as they  have been assured that thty et.n  secure handlogging contracts  from the company.  Fred Hendricks has left for  Ocean Falls in expectation of securing permanent work.  Frank Broughton, provincial  constable, on his recent visit to  Ocean Falls had his plans so well  laid and evidence so conclusive  in his possession against a party  for the violation of the Game Act  that he felt justified in asking J.  W. Macfailane in his capacity as  justice of the peace to accccmp-  any him. And his confidence in  the strength of his case proved  justified, as the magistrate imposed a fine of $'50.00 on the  party accused.

In the endeavor to bring the  producer and consumer nearer  together without superfluous  middlemen and the deduction of  needless expenses and profits  from the prices realized for products sold.  Prince Rupert, following the  example of many other cities, has  established a city market, under  the management of a city purchasing agent. The city is prevented by its charter from directly engaging in mercantile enterprises, but in order to safeguard  the shipper it requires the manager to give the city a bond of  $2000. The market clerk must  deposit the proceeds of the sales  in a bank to the credit of the city  treasurer, who will remit to the  producer after deducting 7 1-2  per cent, commission and the  cartage and freight from the  amount of the sales.  It is desirable that shippers  communicate with the city market the kind and quantity of  of goods they have for sale in  order that the market does not  become glutted and prices demoralized.  If the farmers will cooperate  with this enterprise much benefit will result both to producers  and consumers. i  mi  ijj  13 <  mi  BELLA  COOLA  COURIER  Saturday,  March / /  /9,������^  The Courier  Published Weekly at Bella Coola by  the Bella Coola Publishing Co.

SATURDAY, MAR. 11, 1916.  Cause of Tisdall's Defeat.  - In the'Conservative papers at  " hand the editors are trying to explain to theii; readers the causes  .of the defeat of Mr.' Tisdall in  Vancouver. Some of the reasons given seem to be well found-  ed and no doubt contributed in  some degree to the1 general result.  But the main reason: public  dissatisfaction with the administration of the public affairs by  the government, they will not  admit. The New-Advertiser has  this to say on that point:. "The  vote is not-a condemnation of the  government."  It is very seldom that a respected'citizen who represents a' constituency in parliament and receives the distinction of being  elevated to the cabinet, in seeking the endorsement of his constituents meets with "defeat.  During our residence in the province we do not recall more than  one instance where a member  met with such humiliation at the  hands of his constituents, and  that was when our representative  Hon. Wm. Manson sought- the  endorsement of the electors of  Alberni when he, as a member  for that district, had been appointed provincial secretary, We  know thathis defeat was brought  about by the electorate having  " lost confidence in him personally,  and was not in any way looked  upon as dissatisfaction with the  govern men't. The McBride administration was at that time in  the ascendancy in public favor.  But times have changed, the  mighty ones have failed to retain their popularity. Mr. Tisdall as a citizen and as a representative, if you please, was as  popular as any supporter of this  government in his capacity as a  member of parliament could possibly be.  As against the contention of  the News-Advertiser we maintain that the vote in Vancouver  was decidedly a condemnation of  the government.  The Western Call, a newspaper  of Vancouver, supporting the  government in an article on "The  Real Issue," immediately before  the election, enumerates the good  points in Mr. Bowser's pre-election program and then says:  "Now if the new ministers are  defeated that will be notice to  the government "that the people  have no confidence in their program and that they must not goj  on with it."   The Western Call!  do  agree with  the   proposition  that the expressed will of the  electorate of the people at these  by-elections is a slight indication  of the will of the people of the  whole province and which,'we  believe, will be still further emphasized in the general election'.  But the defeat of the ministers  is not a dissapproval-of the program so much, although it is open  co criticism, but it is an indication of a lack of confidence in the  men who propose to carry out the  provisions of the program.    The  government is judged by its record  and  not  by  its promises.  The   people   do   not  want this  present   government   to   serve  them any longer.        "    ������������������  The Handwriting on the  Wall.  The   election   in   Victoria on  Saturday last proved to be another landslide in favor of the-  opponents of   the  government.  According to the first despatches  received   the   total   number  of  votes cast were 7253, of which  Brewster received.4826 and Flurri-  erfelt 2427, giving  Brewster a  majority of 2399.  ������������������ This --'gives   Mr. -Brewster-a  slightly larger percentage of all  the  votes  cast   than   that Mr.'  Macdonald received in Vancouver.  In another article in this issue  mention is inade of the News-  Advertiser's assertion that the  vote in Vancouver was not a condemnation of the government.  The contention of the Western  Call that an adverse vote in the  by-elections would signify a condemnation of Bowser's program  is also referred to. In spite oi  the argument of the News-Advertiser, there seems to be no  question but what the votes in  Vancouver and V i ctoria are  strongly condemnatory of the  administration and is so regarded  1 in the general election by a sum-  Imary dismissal from office^ and  the trust  which   th���������ey' have so  flagrantly abused.  It is not to be expected that  the government supporters care  to admit that the voters of the  province are dissatisfied with the  government.    They -think  it is  not to their interest'to do so.   If  it is admitted by the government  that the people have lost confidence in  them,  they would according to our system of government have to dissolve the parliament at once and order a general  election.    And .according to the  reasoning of the Western   Call  this is virtually admitted.    If the  people" by an adverse vote condemn the policy of the government they certainly do not want  it_carried out in legislation.  The  people do not merely elect their  representatives to   vote money  for salaries and public works, but  they also  elect   them - to enact  laws, for .the   welfare   of. the  country. The government's ideas  in  regard   to what  these laws  ought to be are embodied in its  platform  or program.'    If the  people condemn the program it  is self  evident that legislation  "cannot be enacted according to  the popular will;    And if the representatives no longer carry out  the popular   will,   they  are no  longer representatives.     They  misrepresent the people and consequently should resign their positions.   ������������������;..������������������"  The legislature .which is how  in session at Victoria does no  longer retain the confidence of  the people and is a travesty upon  a "government of the people, for  the people and by the people,"  and the longer they usurp the  powers of government the more  they will call down upon them-  selvesthe indignation of an outraged people.  It has been charged repeatedly  by the government supporters  that the Liberals are a lot of  hungry politicians clamoring to  get at the'public crib; but if the  government retain its hold upon  the offices after having received  such castigation as "they did in  these by-elections, they exhibit  a hunger for- office that cannot  be rivalled by their opponents.  i,  O    fcO      o      o      o  Peace on Righteous Terms.  At this writing for more than  a week the bloodiest battle ever  known has been raging around  Verdun in France.  The Germans in a supreme effort to break through the French  lines have shunned no sacrifice.  A military critic statjgs that of  300,000 Germans engaged at'the  beginning of the battle probably  very few were left after a week's  fighting-. In places the faUen  and living soldiers were so  crowded that those hit could not  fall, but remained standing.  The ferocity of the soldier*  was such that artillery and machine gun fire mowing them down  like a scythe, could notstop their  onward rush; fresh troops would  be thrown into the gaps and finally the enemies came together in  a hand-to-hand encounter similar  to the battles of former times.  The noise of the cannonade and  bursting of bombs and shells was  so terrific that the soldiers could  not hear themselves speak, the  light from the exploding shells  made night as bright as day.  During and through this horrible  holocaust thousands of wounded  were scattered over the fields of  battle for days exposed to snow  and cold, suffering unspeakable  pain, and nothing could possibly  be done for.their relief because  of the hail of shot and shell.  . Although after more - than a  year and a half of fighting we  are getting hardened to the misery wrought, yet all the people  are earnestly longing for peace.  And yet even though peace is  wanted it must be on righteous  terms.    ,  Premier Asquith has found it  necessary to repeat the terms on  which the Entente Allies are willing to conclude peace.

A  tree is known by its fruits; the  liquor traffic is known by its  blighting effect upon those en-,  gaged in it and its customers. It  was asserted by the antis that,  the petition in question contained  the names of 34000 bona fide  voters, this number being a majority of all the voters in the  province. As a sample of the  reliance to be placed on this assertion itmay be stated that out  of 1000 Vancouver signatories,  only 378 were qualified voters.  The Vancouver World has this  to say in regard to this attempted fraud upon the people:  "This petition, we now see, is  nothing more than a barefaced  and deliberate attempt to mislead the people and the government of this province. It is a  cheat, an impudent bluff, quite  worthy of the liquor men who  fathered it.,' And when we remember that it was got up for  the purpose of preventing the  people of British Columbia freely  recording their opinion on a  great public and patriotic question, namely/whether they want  the iniquities of the liquor traffic  to continue in their midst, the  outrageous nature of the imposition needs no further emphasis.  The petition is worthless. It  is discredited beyond recall.

It goes without saying that the,  result of the election in the premier's home town was a great  disappoihtmentand probably also  a surprise to him.  It is therefore natural that he  may have been somewhat disturbed mentally and may have  in the heat4 of the moment, said  things which he, upon mature  reflection,' would find inconsiderate.  To people who are accustomed  to the usages of a government oi  the people it does, in view of the  decisive stand taken by the only  people who were consulted upon  the subject, sound rather out of  place for the leader of the government, the acknowledged dictator of the legislative assembly,  to make the assertion which the  News-Advertiser attributes to  the premier. To quote the News-  Advertiser:  "We will proceed to carry out  the policy which we have mapped  out," announced Premier Bowser  last evening, when asked what  would be the effect of the defeat  of Hon C. E. Tisdall, Minister of  Public Works in the new cabinet."  Of course at the time when he  made this statement he was ignorant of what would take place  just one week later at Victoria.  But if he adheres to his determination as he expressed it at  the moment of great disappointment and wilfully defies the public opinion as expressed at the  polls he will at some future time  have occasion to rue it.  War Ravages Repaired.  Richard Harding Davis, the  well known author, says that recently in visiting the area in  France covered by the Marne  campaign it was difficult for him  to realize that this section had  been touched by the hand of war.  All the fields are under cultivation, the fences are in their accustomed places, the buildings  have been so deftly repaired or  rebuilt that it is hard to believe  that most of them were wrecked  by shell fire. Even the bridges  across the river have been rebuilt. France is repairing the  ravages of war with astonishing  industry and skill.

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.

The question  is often asked,  "Why is it that Creamery butter  almost invariably brings a'higher  price than   that  for  the  home  dairy? " and there is no denying  the fact that a large quantity of  dairy butter of an inferior grade  is placed  on   the   market which  lowers'very*;materially the general average price.  The following notes are intended  to draw theattention of the home  butter  maker  to  some  reasons  why the creamery is able to command a better market.

HOME DAIRYING- Continued.  tioned that the successful creamery butter maker is a man of  training, and he does not guess  regarding quantities, temperatures, etc. He has a complete  outfit and gives careful attention  to the ripening of the cream,  churns it at the correct temperature, places the finished product  in a neat package and makes a  standard article.  U one is to produce good butter  he must commence right.    The  cows must be healthy and clean.  It is  essential to  supply them  with plenty of pure water and  clean, wholesome food and at all  times give them free access to  ^alt.    It is not wise to feed such  as turnips,- rape, or decayed ensilage, as the flavor of the milk  will  be injured.    The udder of  the cow should be brushed off  and wiped   with  a  damp  cloth  just   before   milking,   and   the  milkingoughtbedone with clean,  dry hands.     Immediately after  milking the milk should be strained and removed as soon as possible from the stable.  (The following notes are taken  from Bulletin 17, Dairy and Cold-  storage^ Commissioner Series.)  METHODS QF CREAMING.  There are three common methods of removing cream from the  milk: the shallow pan, deep setting;  and  the  hand  separator.  All these methods ,are used to  some extent.  The shallow pan method has  many defects and we do not recommend it. Cream .from this  ���������method is'aptto be too thin. The  large surface exposed in the pans  and' the length of time that it  stands favors the' absorption of  odors, etc. The bestresults'from  using shallow pans are obtained  by setting the milk immediatejy  ���������after milking;in-pressed tin pans  without seams, about 3 inches  deep, placing the pans on'a cool  surface or in a large pan through  which cold water is allowed to  run. Skimming should take  place about 24 or 36 hours from  setting.  The deep setting method is a  very decided improvement on the  foregoing.. The best results are  secured by putting the milk as  soon as drawn into  cans about 'milkand the quality of the butter  i >  8 inches in diameter and 20 inches, will not be fine.  deep.    The cans are then placed      Warm   cream  in a tank containing ice water'added to cream already cooled  and left for about 24 hours be-  should   not  be  fore" skimming.  The hand-power cream separator is tho. most reliable and best  method of skimming milk at the  farm.    Some of the advantages  over the other methods are: less  loss of fat in the skim  milk, a  better and more uniform quality  of cream, and the skim milk is  in the best condition for feeding  young stock.  CREAM AND ITS CARR  It is best to skim a rich cream  as  there is less can  room   required; less cream" to cool; it will  keep sweet longer than thin crem.  other conditions being equal; it  will churn  more  easily;  and-it  wili make better flavored butter.  The cream from deep setting-  will not require  much   cooling,  but cream from shallow pans or  from hand separators should be  cooled to under 60 degrees immediately after skimming,  and  kept cool  until about  12 hours  before churning.   If cream is allowed to stand at a high temperature.(70 to 75 degrees) for any  length of time the flavor will be  injured, and it is apt to become  lumpy.    This condition will cause  serious loss of fat in the butter-  The cream should be stirred well  each time a fresh lot is added,  and occasionally until it is ready  to churn.  Preparing the cream for churn  ing.    This means developing the  proper   acidity   (sourness)   and  having the cream  at the right  temperature.    No  fresh  cream  should be added for at least 12  hours before  churning.   If the  cream is sweet at this time, a  small quantity (5 to 10.per cent)  of clean, flavored sour skim milk  may be added with good results  and the cream keptat.churning  temperature for 12 hours.    The  appearance'of the cream' when  ready to chiu'n should be thick  and glossy ,and pour like thick  syrup; it should smell and taste  slightly sour.  It cannot be definitely stated  how high it may be necessary to  raise the temperature of the  cream to make butter under all  conditions, the best rule that can  be given is to raise the temperature high enough to bring the  butter in about 25 to 30 minutes.  It is nearly always necessary to  have a higher churning temperature in the fall and winter than  in the spring and summer.
