Upon examination he found that the deceased was a logger by the name  of Axel Anderson and that he had  .been deadabout three weeks.  It seemed that he had landed  at. the. place in an exhausted condition and, apparently, he had  been unable to make a fire of  sufficient size to warm him up,  nor to collect the boughs usually  used in the making of a bed. He  had tried to remove his shoes  and socks to have his feet thawed  out, but.had failed. The body  was brought in to Bella Coola on  the 29th. Rev.

FARMERS' MEETINGS.  A. H. Tomlinson, provincial  horticulturist, and H. E. Walker,  provincial agriculturist, have  been visiting various parts of  the settlement since their arrival  here Saturday morning. Last  Monday they' held two meetings  at the Colony Hall, H2ge-nsboig,  The first meeting was held in the  afternoon. It was called to order  at 2:30 p. m. by John Widsten,  the vice-president of the Farmers' Institute, who in a few opening remarks called attention to  the importance of more energetic  efforts being made towards the  clearing of land in order that the  cnltivated area be enlarged. He  then introduced Mr. A. H. Tom-  Are   You Interested?

He  has, as related in the letter we  published from him two weeks ago  joined the ammunition corps.  His brother Fred, who has been  onthejbjittle line quite a time,  writes praising the excellent  treatment the Canadian soldiers  are receiving from the military  authorities.  Frank Broughton returned from  Ocean Falls last week where ho  had been called to investigate a  them to whom the., task be delegated.  The government of the province has appointed a Returned  Soldiers Commission to supervise  this work. This commission has  decided that the men returning  shall find homes in the communities where they resided be-fore  enlisting. On arrivirg there a  committee organized for that  purpose shall receive these men  and lend them every assistance.  The primary object of the local  committee will be to find employment for all whoarealle to work  and to exercise supervision and  care of them, or in other words  "to look after them."  The government will, thrcrcl  the Provincial Commission, be in  constant touch with the local  committee and render any and  all  assistance   in   their   power;  potatoes.  As we intend to give a synopsis of the lectures given at these  meetings in future issues of the  Courier we will for the present  confine ourselves to the reporting of the meeting.  He was followed by Mr. H. E.  Walker, who told the faimcYs  how to carry on dairying. It'  seemed the audience never would  tire and told the speaker to go  on, but at 5 o'clock Mr. Walker  stopped and said he would try  and finish at the evening ses'sion.  The night was dark and the  road muddy, the result of which  was that there were a few persons less present at the evening  meeting than in the afternoon.  It was opened just before 8 o'clock by the chairman calling on  Mr. Tomlinson, who then discussed  fruit  culture.     He  was  such    as    finding   employment j followed   by   Mr.   Walker,   wT.o  where none can  be procured at; continued  his  talk  on dairying  West Hartrem of Kimsquit,  who is here on business is prevented by the strong wind from  returning home in his launch.

Forerunners^ of Victory.  The very large majority which  the Liberal candidate, Mr. M. A.  Macdonald received over his two  , , opponents in the by:election held  in Vancouver last Saturday was  rpore of a. victory for clean government than' the most optimistic Liberals could have anticipated. . _ "." : " ..

Bowser assures the people that such would  be the case.  ��������� It must -not for a moment be  ���������assumed that the landslide in  . Vancouver is a victory of the  Liberal party over the Conservative. There was no issue of a  partisan nature of sufficient magnitude to divide the voters on  party.lines. Only the dyed-in-  tha-vvool Conservatives voted  with their party; but every^Conservative lover of clean, methods  in our administration who was  able to rise above party voted for  Mr. Macdonald as a protest  against the many iniquities of  -the McBride-Bowser government.  -��������� The example set by Vancouver,  it will be safe to say, will be followed by nearly every constituency in the province and the re-  suits of the general election will  be a rebuke to the old administration as decisive as the one received by the Roblin government  in Manitoba.  In the face of these facts it is  clear to every fairminded person  that the Bowser government has  lost the confidence of the coun-  ��������� try and that it is the duty of the  Lieutenant-Governor to dissolve  the parliament and order a general election forthwith.  The Lieutenant-Governor has,  in the last year, on account of  some acts of a seeming partisan  nature laid himself open to a  suspicion that he has been a pliable instrument in the hands of  the government. As matters are  shaping themselves now he cannot afford to rest longer undar  Moses B.   Cotsworth  . .._���������'    Vindicated.  Rev. A. E.

Lome Campbell occupied a  similar^ position in_ Rossland, a  mining centre in the Kootenay.

' '  Mr.. Cooke gave reasons sufficiently strong to convince his  audience, andwe think also those  who will "take the trouble to, re^ad  the speech, that they had good  grounds for making the' statement which, the court decided to  be libellous.  Mr: Cooke did not find fault  with the court or jury. The  weight of the evidence as given  by such witnesses as those mentioned above was against Cotsworth who had furnished the  ministers with the material for  "The Crisis in B.C."

That part of the trial where  It is a long lane that has-no  turn.  the judge in his charge to the  jury took occasion to speak disparagingly of Mr. Cotsworth's  character, we will quote, and is  according to stenographic report  of the trial as follows.   The judge  said:  "Who is  Mr. Cotsworth?  What has he said that you can  believe-in view of the evidence  that has been given here, from  the premier of our province down  to the last witness for the plaintiff?   There' is no use mincing  about it.    It is  for  you to say  whether Mr.' Cotsworth  is not  the ordinary everyday untruthful man.   That is the short word  for it." "Mr. Cooke "adds, and  when our counsel took-exception  to that last sentence, his lordship  replied,  "Yes,  I  meant a liar.  You can substitute that expression if you like."  After quoting the judge as here  stated Mr. Cooke presented to  his audience the evidence in his  possession of who Mr. Cotsworth  really is; arid this evidence was  furnished by learned societies  such as the British Association  for the Advancement of Science,  the Geological-Society of London, the Royal Society of Canada, and by great and prominent  men as.. Sir- Sandford Fleming,  Dr. Wilfrid Campbell,' Geo. Allen ���������  and Unwin, publishers; James  Birch, Lord Mayor of York,"  Richard Westrope, Sir .Wilfrid  Laurier, Hon. Sidney Fisher and  Hon.' H. E. Young. The query  now is: are we to believe that  Mr. Cotsworth whose whole life  in Britain; was a record of industry, intellectual.superiority and  irreproachable integrity, whose  most intimate ' friends in this  country testify to his moral char- ���������  acter in 'highest terms���������are we  to believe that he has suddenly  stultified his whole career and  become-a" common liar "and a  fraud; guilty even of perjury? j  The members of the Ministerial Union are not the gullible fools  the government and its friends  pretend that they are. j  The Conservatives in this pro-"  vince have   adopted   the   same  tactics as they of Manitoba.

A half-breed, Joseph Cole,  sued Reid for one half of his  share of the commission, which  was $40,000. The case was .de-i  cided in favor of Cole and now  Reid will have to fork over $20,-  000 to his client and we have no  doubt he will know where to find  it.  The court in summing up the  case says in part: "The lavish  commission the government allowed to be included in the price  was little short of scandalous in  light of the marvellous celerity  and unanimity with which the  Indians got through with the  pow-wow and the signing of the  surrender. It seems inconceivable that such an afternoon's  work alone could be so handsomely compensated for. Disagreeable surmises may arise in one's  mind in surveying the unpleasant features of the whole transaction."  In view of the light thrown  upon the transaction by the evidence adduced, the court finds  that the government could recover the whole of the $80,000  paid in commission, as Reid and  Alexander could not possibly  have earned it. The court further stated:  "Reid's course was indefensible; but still more amazing was-  the assurance said to have been  given by a member of the government of British Columbia,  that ifthetwenty Indians interested in the Kitsilano reserve  could be got to give options for  the acquisition of their rights in  it for a payment to them of $10,-  000 apiece the government would  purchase such options for $SC0,-  000."

Persons who are guilty of such  transactions reveal through then  i character that should forevei  bar them from public confidence,  | and it is in our mind inconceivable if the electorate of British  Columbia will, with their votes,  further endorse them for office.
