Although the Arctic  regions have their charms those  of Bella Coola are superior. He  will join his brother Fred in filling a large logging contract.  ^ S.S. Coquitlam called on Thursday morning bringing a consignment of explosives.  H. L. Harris, former editor of  the Courier, has enlisted in the  11th Canadian Mounted Rifles  and is already started on his  journey overseas.  G. K.

The young soldier thinks England is very pretty just now, but  rather wet.  Henry C. Grainger also sends  his best wishes to the people of  this community. At the time of  writing he and Charles Lord  were among a draft of one hundred under orders to leave at any  time. Mr. Grainger mentions  that from verbal statements from  returned soldiers, it appears that  the fighting in France for the  past two months has been most  terrific, and that people away  from the firing line have very  little idea of what is going on.  ...It is pleasing to note that all  enlisted men from Bella Coola  always mention that they look  forward" to the day when they  will be back to what they term  the old place.  dians were on their way to South  Bentink Arm to engage in hand-  logging. Fred King and family  occupied one launch and Captain  Bobs, Aleck Davis, Nappy, Milo  Stauser, Walter King and Billy  Andy with family of four children comprised the party in the  other launch. Both launches had  just turned into the South Bentink, Fred King's party being a  short distance in the lead, when  Fred King in looking behind saw  smoke coming up from the other  launch. The launch was on fire.  He turned back immediately, but  before he arrived on the scene  one life, that of  Milo Stauser,  sum River on Thursday last week.  On a trip to his father's farm  in the upper part of the settlement he decided to take a short  cut, the old road, across the  Noosatsum River, a distance of  about half a mile, instead of going round the canyon bridge,  which is two and a half miles  longer.  Although he knew the crossing  of the river was of a somewhat  dangerous nature yet the temptation to save two and a half  miles of travel was too strong to  resist and he took the short cut.

Milo Stauser was sitting outside  the opening to the engine room  when suddenly a flame darted  out and the room was instantly  on fire. Milo, nothing daunted,  rushed into the flaming room,  turned off the gasoline and stopped the engine.

Attempt to Stop  Russian Advance  London, June 23���������Official communications yesterday of German  Austrian and Russian war offices  all indicate that, as anticipated,  the Germans are making a determined effort to capture the initiative from the Russian general,  Breisinoff, and create diversion  by a strong attack on General  Kuropatkin's armies in the north,  especially in Volyhnia, on Styr  and Stokhod rivers, in an effort  to prevent Russian reinforcements coming up.  Rivers Inlet News.  The Bella Bella hospital has  closed for the summer and Dr.  G. E. Darby with staff is busily  engaged at the Rivers Inlet hospital, which is now open to  patients during the whole of the  fishing season.  Mr. E. Glass, who has been  hand logging for the Pacific Mills  at Smiths Inlet, met with an accident while at work and is now  at the Rivers Inlet hospital with  a broken collar bone.  From reports lately received j Another patient also undergo-  from our boys with His Majesty's j ing treatment at the same insti-  bicycle Carl essayed to cross  over, but the slippery state of  the log caused him to slip and he  fell in the water. Fortunately  he succeeded in getting a firm  hold of the tree, but at the expense of his bicycle and baggage.  He scrambled ashore a wiser and  a wetter boy.  This short cut of crossing the  Noosatsum is a standing menace  to the lives and property of those  who attempt it. It is being used  more or less all the year roi.i d  except at high water, when as a  rule the rickety bridges made by  endeavor to put itout he jumped]settlers are washed awav\  into the water.

The  rebels have captured Mecca, the  holy city.  London newspapers declare  the rebellion will have important  bearing on the war, especially as  regards the participation of Turkey. The uprising is due to the  recent wholesale executions of  Mohammedan and Syrian notables  and  well known  religious  leaders; also the feeling in Arabia has spread that the Turks  abdicated their position as protectors of Mohammedans and  have become vassals of Germany.

Anderson of the  Good Hope cannery, suffering  from a dislocated shoulder.  All the salmon canneries are  now in operation, though the  sign of many salmon have not  appeared yet there is all indications of a good run this year.  Rivers Inlet is among the best  Sockeye salmon waters in British  Columbia and fish have been  canned there for thirty years;  without any noticeable decrease  in the supply.  The fishing nets stolen from  the Good Hope Cannery some  time ago have not been found.  There is great probability that  they were taken some considerable time before the loss was  discovered, which makes it all  the more difficult to locate the  thieves.  A  Tragedy on  Water.  Last Monday evening about 8  o'clock a tragedy was enacted on  the inlet ten miles from Bella  Coola, which resulted in the  death of one person and some  bodily injuries to others.  Two parties of Bella Coola In-  apparent that he was drowning  and efforts were made to pull  him in by means of an oar. He  grasped the oar, but was too  weak to retain his hold and sank.  In the mean time Walter King,  with great presence of mind,  opened a sack of flour and threw  it on the fire which had the effect  of speedily subduing the flame.  The launch sustained very little  damage from the scorching, but  some of the baggage was destroyed. Walter King received  a serious burn on his right foot  and minor ones about his head  and neck. He was taken to the  hospital for treatment and is already discharged from there.  The body of the man drowned  has not been recovered.  Milo Stauser was a youth 19  years old and accounted by the  missionary in charge as one of  the finest mannered and best behaved of the Indians. He had  received some education at the  Chilliwack School for Indians.  His health was undermined by  consumption and it is doubtful  if he would have survived another year.  As a curiosity it may be related that before starting out on  his last trip he had a presentiment of an early death. He told  another Indian that he did not  expect to return alive from his  trip and therefore presented him  with  his  baseball  outfit.     The  tragedy has cast a gloom over  the Indian village.  Carl Carlson, the seventeen-  year-old son of C. Carlson, came  very near being the victim of an  equally serious accident in the  torrential waters of the Noosat-  this river'have for several years  asked the government repeatedly for a sum of about $200 to  make a bridge that would enable  them to make this crossing with  safety. But although public  money is being squandered every  year in needless undertakings  the petitions of these settlers  have not been heeded. Their  political influence is not strong-  enough to make itself felt.  Let us quote a few examples  of how the money is spent. Last  year, on a by-road a bridge was  built right along side of another  bridge which was perfectly sound  and serviceable in every respect.  This was done for the sole purpose of improving the appearance  of the road. $200 was spent in  slashing a trail to two pre-emptions, which are now abandoned.  $200 was spent last spring for  the removal of a log jam in the  river, this work had been represented to the ministerof public  works as being necessary for the  protection of the Clayton bridge.  To the ordinary observer this  log jam had no more to do with  the Clayton or any other bridge  than if it had. been located in  the moon. Works of such character are being carried out at  the orders of Mr. Manson, while  work actually necessary is being  ignored. It is safe to say, however, that the day of reckoning  is not far distant when the people  of Bella Coola will: show their  resentment of such treatment at  polls.

The result of the Gosden trial  will to all right-thinking people  appear a complete vindication of  Mr. M. A. Macdonald.    The de-  ��������� cision of the-jury was eleven for  the conviction and one for acquittal of Gosden, charged with perjury.   According to the rules in  . jury trials this does not constitute a verdict which, in order to  ��������� be decisive must be unanimous.  Bat in legislative assemblies, in  supreme courts and other equally  important, bodies, a majority de-  .cides in cases of the utmost importance. . Therefore, to all intents and purposes'of clearing  Mr. M-icJonald's reputation the  trial was decidedly favorable.  - The Conservative press pleads  that the jury were swayed by  partisan feelings;  to some ex-  ��������� tent that seems to bereasonable  to believe-under the circumstan-  ces, and in support of that contention it may be stated 'that  both the attorney for the prosecution and the attorney for the  defense agreed that it would be  useless to try the other count in  the perjury charge against Gos-  ��������� den on account of the difficulty  if not impossibility of selecting  an intelligent jury destitute of  a preconceived   opinion  in  the  ��������� matter.   .  But even so, we fail to see that  the Conservatives can derive any  satisfaction from the result of  the trial..  From  that point of   view it  .'shows that the majority of the  :- jury believe the Liberals inno-  ���������/ cent of.the charges laid, at their  doors by the riff-raff of Seattle,  and  others  equally  devoid of  truth   and   honesty.     And  the  opinion of the majority of the  jury in this case will prove to be  a fair indication of the opinion  of an  equal- proportion of the  electorate of the province in the  coming election.  the men who have borne the  Burdens of development, the men  who constitute the bone and  sinew of the district, and preferred and taken the advice of  men who have very little to show  to their .credit, either in performances or possessions.  Money has been spent lavishly,  but probably half of it to no good  purpose, and in reply, to the remonstrance of the writer against  this waste Mr. Manson said:  "You got the money, did you  not?" That has been his position in regard to expenditures  here. He did not concern himself how the money was spent if  it, only pleased the men from  whom he took his advice. ��������� And  the result.of Mr. Manson's policy  is that he will find very few o"f  the settlers whom he has so persistently ignored that will vote  for him in the next election.  And it is fair to assume he has  pursued an ' equally injurious  policy both to the community  and himself in other parts of the  district.-  Even if he is honored by his  master by the gift of a portfolio,  he will find' that the same treatr  ment awaits him now whi'clv-he  received at the hands of the  electors of Alberni when he  sought their approval of his appointment as provincial'secretary  by MrfMcBride.  head of the department of agriculture, yet we most strenuously  and emphatically oppose the appointment of a man so entirely  destitute of the qualifications  needed to discharge the duties  of this office as Hon. Wm. Man-  son is known to be. He has no  education or experience which  qualifies him as the head of the  most important industry of the  province. , -  Instead of .being-a help he will  be a hindrance to the promotion  mention.  But now great changes are  taking place and others are indicated by the passing events.  Probably the most prominent  among these events is the great  naval battle in the North Sea.  It was a defeat of the Germans;  although they had the advantage  of numbers and position until the  arrival,of Admiral Jellico with  his grand fleet/when the Germans fled to their protected  haven of refuge.  This battle demonstrated that  the Germans had no surprises in  store for their opponents in the  way of superior guns or other  implement^ of war. It demonstrated th'at Britain is still the  mistress qf the sea and unconquerable. ? -  A change is coming dver the  situation in the Baltic Sea. Hith-  j'erto a larger and'almost'uninterrupted trade has been conducted  across the inland water between  Sweden and Germany. The indications are that this will soon  be a thing of the past, because  the control of the Baltic is passing from the Germans.   This is  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co. Ltd  VANCOUVER, B.C.

While the importance of agriculture in this province" cannot  well be over-estimated, yet we  are somewhat dubious about the  advisability or necessity of creating a separate portfolio of minister of agriculture- at this time.  On the point of economy it is  not advisable;  retrenchment is  the order of the day and therefore we should hesitate somewhat before w^e add to the already too heavy financial  burdens of the province.'   The-pro-  vince has being doing considerable   and   that   not   badly   for  agriculture in times past -under  the guidance of'"a-deputy minis-  ter arid-would- do equally well  in the future, especially, with a  man of the undoubted ^ability of  Mr. Scott at the'helm.  But   even   if  for   arguments  >ake we concede the necessity of  the nature of things defer and  submit to his chief in many matters in which he may differ, but  where he does not care to make  himself offensive by opposition.  With the high estimate Mr.  Manson has for his own ability  and his ambition to show that he  earns $20 a day, he may inaugurate policies and measures just  as disastrous to the farmers as  Ross'-land policy and McBride's  railway policy have been to the  development of the province.,  If,' after the Liberals'obtain  control of affairs, it shall be decided to continue a separate minister for this department,, let it  be sufficiently detached from  politics to make it possible to  put a man in that position who  will be considered both as to experience and education the highest authority on agriculture  avail-able.  o     o     o     o    o  The Aspects of the War.  ' It has now been a long time  since the Courier made.any comments on the outlook of the war.  And this lias been because there  ish ship Dunrobin to escape from  internment'at Lulea, in the northern partof the Gulf of Bothnia,  to the North Sea-without being  captured, torpedoed or injured.  A flotilla   of   thirteen   German  ships, ��������� convoyed  by  a   fleet of  German cruisers and destroyers,  were either sunk or scattered by  the Russians last week.  ��������� Reports ;are  being circulated  that a number, of British super-  dreadnaughts have succeeded in  penetrating the   narrow sound  between Denmark and  Sweden  into the Baltic and are now at a  Russian port.   ��������� The superiority  of .the German navy in the Baltic  will in the light of these events  be found threatened and lost to  the extent that it will be possible  for the Russians to land armies  on German, soil behind General  Hindenburg's forces   and thus  create quite an interesting diversion  on  the eastern  front.   It  will also make it possible for the  Allied warships to shell the German cities pn the Baltic Sea.  The good news from the war  are not confined to the situation  having a salaried minister at the has been no notable changes to on  th& sea alone.     There are  great changes taking place on  land, especially on the eastern  front, where the Russian forces  are rolling onward resistlessly,  annihilating, capturing and driving the Austrian armies out of  Russian territory. It is said that  the Russians have penetrated the  Austrian lines on a front 94 miles  long, threatening envelopment.  The reasons for this success  on the part of the Russians are  found in the tremendous number  of guns and amount of- ammunition in their possession, and the  weakeningof the Austrian lines  in order to drive the Italians out  of their positions. Now the  A'ustrians are abandoning their  to some extent successful fight  against the Italians to stem the  tide of the Russian advance, with  the result that the Italians have  again began to gain ground.  At Verdun there has been a  collapse in the German offensive  caused by the utter exhaustion  of their forces.

Before it had received the news  of the splendid success of the  Prohibition movement in the  Province of Ontario, the "New  Republic," which is the official  organ of the American Anti-  Saloon League, had an editorial  entitled "Canada's Virile Response," in which the situation  this side of the boundary line  vvas referred to in the following-  terms:  "Canada as an integral part of  the .British Empire, is in the  .nidst of a struggle to the death  for National existence.  "The best blood of the Dominion is being spattered all over  :he hills of northern France.  Che fathers and mothers gladb  ^ive up their sons; the girls give  jp their sweethearts, and wives  ;jive up their husbands. The tax  payers dig deep into their poc-  cets and all wonder what else  chey can do.  ��������� "While patriotism is ablaze  /rom Vancouver to Quebec whai  ire the rum sellers doing? They  ire intervening to balk their  country's efforts. Did Canada  snivel and cringe and stutter  ind wriggle and crawl concerning this?    Not much.  "Alberta led off by wiping out  the saloons of the entire province.  "Then along came Saskatchewan with an anti-barlaw, closing  every dram shop in her boundaries.  "Then the people of Manitoba  enacted a state-wide prohibition  law with a two to one majority.  "Then the Legislature of Nova  Scotia met and enacted a statewide law for that Province.  "Now British Columbia is  planning to oust the disloyal  traffic from her boundaries.  "In the hour of public trouble  whether it be in a municipal riot  or whether it be a world-wide  war, the first step necessary to  success is to close the dirty and  disloyal dram shop.  Like the Typhus, the saloon is  always an evil and a source of  trouble, but this evil is accentu-  ted in the hour of public distress.  "Canada's response to this  challenge of alcohol is worthy a  great, a magnificent people.  "Our hats are off to the Canucks. "���������(From the Pioneer.)  H. Arnott, M.B., M.C.P.S.

HOE  Ol  Dealers and Trappers  \A/HAT person so happy and contented as the prosperous farmer?  \A7HAT person so independent?  \a/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.  HTHE 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 faim produce from Bella Coola Valley canied 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.  " ^'---'.iJiJUi&iSsfi  NO "RUIN" IN DENVER.  Before Denver entered upon  Prohibition, on January 1, 1916.  many-of the most important  "interests" of the city were  downcast. The gas and electric-  light company had predicted a  drop of at least $15,000 a month  in receipts; instead, it showed a  gain of $10,000 in the very first  month of  dryness.    The banks  had feared the change, but the  first month of Prohibition saw  2000 names added to their list of  depositors and a gain of deposits  aggregating $750,000. So on  through a long list.    It is true  that, certain lines of business  were hurt. The pawnshops, for  instance, never knew the times  to be so dull.���������Christian Science  Monitor.  @  Get "More Money*'for your Foxes  Muskrat.

Did not  know, is no excuse. Investors  should keep posted on developments by reading the "Courier."  The Demands of;the Time.  The man  who  produces one  pound of anything of value, the|  man who improves the breed of  i  his own   cattle,   the  man  who  makes two blades of grass grow  where one grew before, is adding  to the wealth of the nation, to  the richness of the country. Not  alone is that the ease, but he "is  contributing his bit to Christianity and to the welfare of the  world.   It is given to the farmer  and breeder to serve his native  land more by his individual effort  than is within the power of the  ordinary follower of any other  occupation.    The farmer by his  own unaided efforts, except by  the gifts of nature, carf maintain  his wife and family.    No other  worker in the world's vineyard!  can  say so much unless he is  willing to go naked and that he  and his should often times suffer  the pangs of hunger.   And the  claims upon the -farmer and his  fellow, the breeder, in present  circumstances are not only urgent but many.  There are people who object  to the assertion that the agriculturist is making the earth yield  its utmost, in tending his flocks  and herds with- care, diligence  and intelligence, is doing his bit,  the same as the man in the trenches. ��������� He is not directly placing  his own life in jeopardy perhaps,  but he is helping to sustain those  who are.  He is providirg a good-sized  portion of the ammunition. The  fault is not in the assertion itself,  but in the use that is made of it  by the man who has no spirit for  the right and who, the probabilities are, is doing his full bit  neither in agriculture nor in any  other form of industry.

Canada's .future   lies   in  the  womb of her agriculture.    To  make the best use of the opportunities that are and will be, to  take our  rightful  place in the  world's economics, we must toil  without ceasing,  we must produce and improve, we must bend  all our energies ,to results, we  must utilize waste and, amidst  it all, we must -focus our eyes  upon the future and pay our respects   to   conservation.

A truth ever to be  borne in mind is that what is  wasted  by fools is turned into  profit by the wise. ' Even in the  midst of its campaign of destruc-  tion and ferocity, Germany, so  word is flashed across the sea,  is devoting attention to education and internal improvement  and development.  Value of Sheep.  We note-with satisfaction that  our farmers are becoming alive  to the importance and value of  raising sheep.    Several of the  settlers have flocks which will  form the nucleus of larger numbers in the near future.     The  present high prices of wool and  mutton  are sufficient incentive  to this branch of husbandry.  Those of our farmers who have  began the raising of sheep are  now so   keenly interested and  jealous''of   every individual of  the flock that it is well nigh impossible to buy a ewe in the valley.   And this is as it should be.  The present abnormal times with  war prices prevailing may not  be lasting, but it is safe to predict that the wool and mutton  market will be high for many  years to come.    Canada iii 1915  raised only one tenth of the wool,  needed'for'home consumption;;  United States is a large importer  arid   will,   even   if   we  raised  enough for. our own use,- be a  customer' who  will  buy all we  can spare.  The meat supply of the world  is decreasing while the population is rising. This is another  factor that will make sheep raising profitable and there is hardly  any stock that can be raised and  kept with less expense than  sheep.
