To Restrict Influx  of Chinese  Ottawa, June 18.���������It is understood negotiations are in progress  between the Canadian Government and the authorities of the  new Chinese Republic for the  signing of an agreement in regard to the control of Chinese  immigration entering Canada.  The Chinese Government has, it  is understood, intimated that it  is willing to enterinto some such  arrangement that Japan has at  the present time which permits  the entrance of four hundred  Japanese into Canada yearly.  Th.e agreement with the Chinese  authorities may even be more  rigid. At present, Chinese entering into Canada pay $500 head  tax.  It is believed at Ottawa that  if an arrangement were made  with China as with Japan it  would make it easier to negotiate  a similar agreement with India  through the British and Indian  authorities.

Flood Destroys Town  in New Mexico  Royalty Did Not Contribute  to Militant Fund  London, June 18.���������Chief Inspector James McBrien states  that the published reports that  members of the royal family, including the Prince of Wales, had  contributed to the funds of the  militant suffragettes in order to  insure themselves against molestation, were absolutely false.  Albuquerque, June IS.���������Hills-  boro, in the southwest corner of  New Mexico, practically is destroyed by a flood which swept  through the principal business  section. A continued rain which  had swollen mountain arroyos  was followed by a cloudburst  which sent a wall of water six  feet high flowing through the  town. Most of the S00 inhabitants had been warned and those  living in the lower part of the  town had sought safety on the  high hillside. Thomas Murphy,  a pioneer resident and first  sheriff of the county, is missing  and is believed to have been  drowned. No other loss of life  is reported.  Monster Aeroplane  For military purposes an Englishman is building an aeroplane  with 250 horsepower motors, 100  horsepower more than any now  in use, and that will carry a gun,  wireless equipment and four or  five men.  The S.S. Camosun docked here  at about 1 p.in. on Sunday bringing her usual large consignment  of freight besides a number of  passengers. After discharging  passengers, mails and freight at  the government wharf, she proceeded to the cannery on the  south side of the Inlet where two  thousand five hundred cases of  salmon were loaded.  J. M. Rolston, B. C. L. S., and  Bernard Mitchell came up from  Vancouver by the last steamer,  and left town on Tuesday for the  Interior where they will .spend  the next five months in reconnaissance survey work for the  provincial government. They  expect to come out by way of  this place.  Tom Murray, the well known  commercial man, has spent the  last week in town on business  with our local merchants. Mr.  Murray is now a free lance and  many of his special lines have  found great favor with the public  here.  George Young left for Kimsquit by the Camosun on Sunday.  He is engaged to fish for the  Manitou cannery.  G. K. Burnett and W. Mortimer left for the south on Sunday  last after having spent some  months in survey work in the  valley.       ~  ���������*'  '  /  Louis Swisdahl, who left Bella  Coola over a year ago to take up  his abode in the Francois Lake  country, returned on Sunday.  Louis was granted a pre-emption  record on a choise piece of land  and after investing in horses and  the necessary implements to  commence farming operations,  and spending considerable time  and energy improving his land,  he was politely informed by the  Department of Lands that the  land he occupied was part of an  Indian reserve, consequently he  had to pack up and get off in  short order. He says he is back  to stay, as during his wanderings he has seen nothing that  looked quite so good to him as  Bella Coola Valley.  and have taken up residence in  the house recently occupied by  Mr. and Mrs. Charlton.  The parents and adult friends  of the pupils attending the Mackenzie School, gathered at the  school building on Tuesday afternoon at the invitation of the  teacher, Mr. C. S. Brown, to  witness a brief resume of the  work of the term by the pupils.  Several exercises were gone  through by the different classes  to the extreme satisfaction of  the parents, who expressed  pleasurable surprise at the progress made by the pupils.  Mr. Brown expresses himself ���������  as highly pleased with the work  of his pupils during the term now  ending, and greatly appreciates  the kindly interest taken by the  parents and friends as evidenced  by the large attendance on Tuesday afternoon.  The schools throughout the  valley closed for summer vacation yesterday. The annual examination of local pupils-for entrance to high school takes place  at the Mackenzie school next  week, commencing on Monday  at 8:45 a. m.  The body of Colonel Robert F.  Lindsell, who met his death by  drowning in the Bella Coola  River on April 8th last, was  found floating in the Inlet on  Saturday last by a local fisherman. The remains were taken  to the Bella Coola cannery where  after being identified, preparations were made for interment.  The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon from the home of  Mrs. J. Clayton, Rev. H. Sageng  of Hagensborg officiating.  The coffin was appropriately  draped with the Union Jack and  covered with numerous floral  wreaths, and many people from  different parts of the valley attended to pay their last respects  to a brave soldier and a kind and  genial neighbor.  The cannery tug Swan came  into port from Kimsquit on Monday, bringing Mr. Chas. Draney  of the Kimsquit cannery and Mr.  R. Gurd of the Manitou cannery,  which operates in the same  waters. The object of their call  was to take out local fishermen.  They returned on Tuesday taking  among others, Arthur Gothard  who will fish for the Manitou  cannery.   Indian-agent Fougner returned  to town on Tuesday aboard the  power-cruiser Charles Todd, after a visit to the Indian reserves  on Rivers Inlet.  Reports from the local cannery  say that the spring salmon catch  continues about the average.  The sockeye salmon is already  putting in an appearance in fair  numbers and there is every indication of an excellent run. The  sockeye season will commence in  a few days' time.  Mr. and Mrs. Frank Robinson  \ have moved from the townsite  A few local enthusiasts are  busily engaged in preparing part  of the hospital grounds as a tennis court, which, when completed, will be a distinct asset to the  town. The work is now nearing  completion and the court will  soon be ready for play.  Fire-warden Lunos visited  town the other day in connection  with his duties. Speaking of the  recent fire in the Upper Valley,  Mr. Lunos said he had lately returned from a visit to the burnt  area which he went over carefully and found that previous reports were very much exagerated  the fire only rnnning for about  a quarter of a mile.  ?

The communication from Mr.  C. S. Wadey, secretary-treasurer  of the Cape Scott Farmer's Institute, furnishes us with another  example of the way the bona-fide  settlerte treated by the McBride  government.  When it comes to a question  of road work, the people of Bella  Coola have had all the experience  necessaryi in order to be able to  sympathise fwith the settlers at  Cape Scott and other such places,  where the people for some reason or other have fallen under  the ban of the government.  There are people in Bella Coola  Valley who are gradually being  forced to,the opinion that they  came here twenty years too soon.  But the question arises: Would  the land be available for settlement today? No, the speculator  would have grabbed it long ago,  and the same applies to Cape  Scott.  Queen Charlotte Islands' settlers have their troubles regarding roads also; but what part of  Wm. Manson's constituency has  not?  One settler says, "We have no  roads, Mr. Manson, our member,  told us we had, but he is the only  one that knows it. None of the  settlers have seen them.'!  A contemporary gives a graphic instance of the "encouragement" received by the settlers  on the Islands:  "It appears that one of the  settlers purchased a team of  horses, but he could not get them  to his ranch over what was supposed to be a government road  until a slight frost came when he  took them in over the .hard  ground. 'Shortly afterwards a  thaw came and he could not get  the team out again and had to  pack in fodder to them on his  back. Later on another frost  coming, he took the team over  the hardened surface but now  that the ground is soft again he  cannot take them back  to his  ranch."  Then we pay ;f or a royal commission to find out why the agricultural industry is-not flourishing.  ^This industry which is* the basis  of all permanent national prosperity, will begin to flourish without the aid of royal commissions,  just so soon as the McBride administration is driven from  power, and that time -is not far  distant.  o     o     o     o     o  "Honest John" Oliver never  /9u  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES  minces matters.  $40 an acre, land ten miles back  from the railroad. The McBride  government has connived at and  assisted the greatest frauds ever  perpetrated on' the face of the  earth."  ���������  o     o    o    o    o  The Real Reason.  The.fact that there has been  no great rush of people to stake  pre-emptions in the areas recently thrown open by the government is taken, by' the Victoria  Colonist, -as evidence -that there  is nothing more that the government , can do towards-putting  settlers on the land in this province. We assume that our contemporary would ^therefore permit the land-sharks to continue  their work of exploitation.  What is the reason that while  the governments of the prairie  provinces have been able to settle  their lands with hundreds of  thousands, our own provincial  government   can   do   nothing?  He. can always 0ne short ghmpse a* th* ***  The last clause in the agreement under which the Bella Coo-  . la Valley   was   settled  twenty  years ago reads as follows:  "And the Grantor (the British  Columbia - Government) covenants that, so soon as each member of the Colony, to the number  of thirty in all, has erected a  dwelling-house upon the land  comprised in the respective  leases, or as soon as the said  Grantor has satisfied himself of  the bona-fide settlement of the  Colony upon the lands allotted to  the members thereof, there will  be made and constructed a wagon road through the land occupied by the Colony."  The Colonists landed in Bella  Coola Valley in October, 1894,  and have ever since been waiting  for the government to become  satisfied as to the bona-fide of  the Colony, for they have not today what may reasonably be  termed a wagon road through  the settlement.  We commend the government  for requiring reasonable assurance of the bona-fide intentions  of these settlers, many of whom  have died during the past twenty  years off probation, but it seems  somewhat unjust to us that the  McBride government should  visit the' sins of the fathers (in  having come to British Columbia  to farm the land, to the exclusion  of the speculator) on their children.  be depended upon to speak the  plain unvarnished truth without  frills and trimmings and that is  one reason why he is "Honest  John."  Addressing a recent meeting  in Vancouver he said, "The name  of McBride will come to be a  hissing word to the men of British Columbia for the reason that  he has perverted the resources  of this province. One of the  largest speculators in the Fort  Fraser district is the Dominion  Stock and Bond Corporation and  Price Ellison is one of the leading  men, the former minister of land  in this province. They are holding the choicest land in the district and they're offering it at  emption maps issued by the Department of Lands will quickly  dispel all doubt as to the reason.  These maps plainly show' that  every section of good land within  reasonable reach of civilization  has been staked.by those speculators whom Hon. W. H. Bowser  was so anxious should be "given  a chance."  Editor,  Bella Coola Courier.  Sir���������We, the officers and members of the Cape Scott Farmers'  Institute, are so incensed by the  attitude of the Provincial Government towards the settlers  here in regard to appropriations  for roads and trails, that we consider it high time that the public  should be made aware of the real  state of affairs.  !.  The appropriation1 last year  (1913) for Cape Scott, where  there are sixty families (total  population 200) was $2000; Cache  Creek with less than half the  population received'$5000; ^hu-  shartie with; a population of  about twenty, $15,000; St. Josef,  population -about forty, $25,000.  There are more families at Cape  Scott than at all of the above-  named places. /  This 'year, the appropriation  for Cape Scott is about $1000.  Surely the;reason of this insignificant suhi cannot be that the  Government lacks sufficient  funds, when such enormous  amounts are being. spent on  Strathcona Park, compared to  which our appropriation is a  mere pittance.  Letters have been sent to the  member for the district and the  Prem i er f rom ti rri e to time/ Ay hi ch  have beenvpractically ignored.  The Provincial Government  has repeatedly held out inducements to settjers'to come to this  place. Now they are on the land,  a government official has the  temerity to tell sotae: of them,  that  they   have   come   fifteen1  years too soon.   '    -  We have a country here with-  excellent prospects as regards  farming. All we need is fair  and just recognition from the  government, and this is what  we are not getting.

Whenever there is a question  of breaking down the tariff wall  between Canada and the United  States, or the presentation of  thirty-five million dollars or so  to Great Britain, there is a loud  wail from one coast of Canada  to the other. The Liberals are  immediately branded as traitors  and disloyal ingrates. It will be  noticed, however, that when the  Conservatives are touched in  their tender feelings they are  the first to forswear allegiance  to  His Majesty.    -The present  agitation in Ulster is a case in  point. The Ulsterites refuse to  accept the will pf the state to the  point of giving battle against  British arms.. In Canada one  sees the spectacle of staunch  Conservatives who were the first  to cry.traitor lining up with the  Ulsterites. Hon. Frank Cochrane, Minister of Railways, took  part in a Carson agitation in  London recently.

White, who was the first to  seek a permit to establish a fur  farm in Ungava, reports that in  September,   1913,   at  Napoktuk  Bay,   in   Northern  Labrador,  a  young Eskimo boy was devoured  by a Polar bear.    The boy was  asleep with his brother in a boat  anchored  a   little  way  off  the I  shore.    One of them awoke and  saw the bear, which had raised  his head and forepaws into the  boat.    He kept absolutely quiet,  and the animal afterwards climbed on again, seized the boy who  was   asleep   and   carried   him  ashore.    The bear was shot by  natives but the boy who had been  carried off was already completely devoured.  and Buy RAMS AYS'  Biscuits, Candy, Macaroni  New Orleans Molasses  Manilla Drips  Imperial Maple Syrup  Ramsay Bros. & Co.
