To Aid Ulster Militants  London, March 26.���������It is said  . the Duke of Portland has offered  a princely  contribution  to the  funds of the Ulster militants.  London, March 26.���������"Recent  experience suggests that a frank  abandonment of the 'Contribution' idea would be in t^he interests of all concerned, including  the British taxpayer," says the  Daily Chronicle (Liberal), discussing the references of Mr.  Winston Churchill to the three  dreadnoughts project of the Borden government, abandoned for  the time being on account of opposition in the senate. The  Chronicle approves the local fleet  unit proposal as carried but in  Australia and advocated in Canada by Sir Wilfrid Laurier. ' It  says: '. '-..'��������� ' ���������'���������.  "We welcome Mr. Churchill's  apparent conversion to the Australian plan of the provision of  local fleet units by the dominions,  which is the only naval plan so  far devised for permanently enlisting and keeping active the  interest of the dominions. Its  avoidance of insoluble questions,  due to the division of the cost of  an undivided imperial fleet between the British and Colonial  taxpayers, is a decisive argument in its favor."  More Work Ahead  Washington, Mar. 26���������Though  merchant ships are expected to  be passing through the Panama  Canal in the course of trade within the next three months, the  canal-makers still have much  work ahead of them. Nearly all  of what is known as the permanent dam and locks construction  has been finished, but owing to  the earth slides in the Culebra  Cut many hundreds of thousands  of cubic yards of earth must be  removed to broaden the channel  to its full width. During the  month of February the total  amount of excavation was 1,430,-  050 cubic yards as compared with  1,514,972 yards in January.  S. S. Camosun arrived in port  on Sunday last with the usual  large number of passengers.  Mr. and Mrs. Kasperson, three  sons and a daughter, arrived by,  last Sunday's steamer and intend  to settle in the valley. They  came from Norway by the Allan  Line of steamers, purchasing  their tickets through the steamship company's local agent at  Bella Coola.  Mr. and Mrs. Kasperson have  relatives and friends in the valley.  Mrs. Reginald Hill has come  to join her husband, the well-  known and highly popular head  net-man at the local cannery, and  will spend the summer in this  valley.  Randolph' Saugstad and John  Nygaard have returned after  spending the winter attending  college in Washington.  J. Pask has been spending the  last week in town.  Mr. and Mrs. Martin Nygaard  are to be congratulated on the  birth of a son on Tuesday last.  Mrs. Nygaard senior, mother  of Mr. Martin Nygaard, is also  to. be congratulated on the arrival of her twenty-fifth grandchild.   John Sylvester of Hagensborg  leaves by tomorrow's steamer  for the Beaver cannery, where  he will be engaged during the  summer.  '    Ed. Wheeler.has done considerable improvements to his property opposite the Courier office, in  the way of clearing, leveling and  fencing. The property now presents a very creditable appearance and should prove some incentive toother property owners  in the town to do likev*ise.  The draw for the Parlor Suite  took place at Hagensborg on  Wednesday last. The lucky number was 28, and the handsome  suite has become the property of  Thersesa Lokken of Hagensborg.

P. for Comox, who has  been here for the past week conferring with Sir Wilfrid Laurier  and other Liberal leaders, left  for British Columbia. Sir Wilfrid confidently expects that Mr.  Sloan will come back to parliament after next election as one  of the Liberal contingent from  British Columbia.  Mrs. J. H. Whitcombe has returned from Spokane, Washing-  which place she visited for the  purpose of consulting a physician  Mr. Ashdown Green, left by  the last steamer after spending  a week in town on business in  connection with the Indian Department.  J. H. Disney, who has for some  time past been engaged in survey work in this neighborhood,  left for Vancouver on Sunday.  C. Rainsford has left for his  home in North Vancouver after  spending a week in town.  C. Mills, the genial representative of the famous firm of Kelly  Douglas & Co. Ltd., went on his  way by the last steamer after  spending a pleasant and profitable week in the valley.  A.

This is not so, the  attorney-general having stated  that all anglers resident Jn the  province are at liberty to use rod  and line as formerly.  The regulations governing  trout fishing this year are as follows:  "No one shall fish for. catch or  kill trout of any kind, including  steelhead of two pounds in weight  undressed, or under, from November 15 in each year to March  25 following, both days inclusive,  except in the waters east of the  120th  Meridian,   where  no one  Rev. T. C. Colwell has returned  from a visit to Firvale and the  Crossing and will conduct service  on Sunday as usual.  Harry Kivett, of Firvale, has  had the good fortune to capture  a fine male fisher, alive and unharmed. The animal will be  shipped probably to Vancouver  by the Camosun on Sunday next.  The long and anxiously awaited  work of cribbing the Necleets-  connay river for the protection  of the town was commenced on  Thursday last. This removes a  great cause of anxiety to the  people of the town, who have  not relished the idea of a possible  reoccurrence of the flood of last  fall. _______  Mr. Ashdown Green, civil engineer of the Indian Department  of the Dominion government,  has stated that he intends to re-  commend that considerable work  be done on *the Necleetsconnay  river as it passes through the  Indian reserve; with* the object  of diverting a large portion of  the water into the Paisley river.  This will save the road towards  the approach to the wharf from  being flooded in case of a freshet.  Mr. and Mrs..F. M. Brewster,  who have been spending the  winter at Hagensborg, leave by  tomorrow's steamer for the  Brunswick cannery, Rivers Inlet,  where Mr. Brewster is employed  as engineer^   The   McClosky   brothers   of  Kimsquit visited the valley last  week for the purpose of obtain  independent fishing licenses.  ing away the brush piles from  the town streets.  The Development League have  had the matter in hand with the  government for several months  past, but have so far not succeeded in obtaining any assurance that the work is to be undertaken.  One reason given is, that it is  not the government's policy to  clear town "streets. A glance at  the accounts, however, would  lead one to believe that our member of parliament was suffering  from a lapse of memory when he  made this statement, as there appears numerous instances of  money being "spent for exactly  this purpose in places not as important as Bella Coola. This is  one of the matters that the  League will take up with Mr.  Manson on his arrival.  Another matter which the  League will deal with is the temporary crossing over the Noot-  satsum river.  It is understood that the government does not intend "to construct a new permanent bridge  at this place, so that it is essential that the temporary crossing  should be properly constructed  and maintained. .   .-.-  Road superintendent Macfar-  lane was authorized to do this  work as long as October last,- but  seeing that the thing was being  urgently requested by a large  number of settlers and would be  a great public convenience, it  was not in accordance with his  usual custom to even consider it,  and he didn't.  If the government does not  build a permanent bridge, a temporary bridge must be provided.  Stay with it.  Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Christen-  sen and Mr. and Mrs. I. Fougner  made a short trip by gasoline  launch to the head of South Ben-  tinck Arm. The return journey  was not at all pleasant owing to  high wind and a rough'sea. The  party returned on Monday evening none the worse for the  experience^   Much regret is being expressed  at the serious loss incurred by  Mr. R. N. Levelton whose house  was completely destroyed by fire  on Monday night.  The fire, which was not discovered until it had got a firm  hold of the roof, was caused by  a spark from the chimney.

Leaving the town on Monday  morning they proceed to Hagensborg where they will address a  meeting in  the  evening.     Returning   to   town   on   Tuesday  morning about noon, they will,  if convenient, be invited to meet  the executive board of the Development   League  during   the  afternoon.     There are several  matters   absolutely nonpolitical  on  which the   League   require  information and which, doubtless,  Mr. Brewster and Mr. Oliver will  be able to afford.

Perhaps these  were the 'only ones that left the  post office building, as the waste-  baskets and boxes for public use  were stuffed full of the trash.  That this report shonld still be  distributed, after being declared  an utter fabrication, is nothing  less than a scandal, and the persons responsible are as devoid of  honor as they are lacking in any  sense of decency.

SATURDAY,' MARCH 28, 1914.  _     .     _ .  Warning to Naturalized  British Subjects.  ' Every naturalized British subject "would do well to bear in  mind that by a recent amendment to .the- Elections Act, no  naturalized' British subject can  have his/ .name placed on the  voters' list for any electoral district unless his application is accompanied by his certificate of  naturalization or a certified copy  thereof.  .   Attorney-general Bowser fears  " the vote of the naturalized British subject and   seeks  by this  means to disfranchise as many  of them as possible.  The only way the full effect of  ��������� this change in the elections act  can be obtained is by the cancellation of the present voters' list.  This has been done before, and  can be done again anytime the  government think advisable ��������� for  its own benefit,   ������  . '  The last time .the lists were  cancelled only five weeks were  allowed for reregistration previous to the holding, of the court  of revision.  Less than five weeks time may  be'allowed next time, with prob1  ably a general election to follow.  Get your certificates reacly.  You will need them. Mr. Bowser does .not-put laws of this  . nature on the statute books without intending to use them. Do  not let him put one over on to  you.  If you have not got your naturalization certificate, get a certified copy.bf it by applying to the  registrar of the court which  issued your naturalization paper,  enclosing fee (25 cents in British  Columbia) for copy of certificate.  Get busy on this at once.  Don't be "beaten out of your  vote by Mr. Bowser.  o     o    o    o     o  Mail-Bags Full of Rubbish.  The mail arriving at Bella Coola  post-office on  Sunday last was  ' exceptionally large.  Speculation was rife as to what  the extra bags contained. Some  hoped for longdef erred mail from  the Old Country. Some waited  for their mail-order house catalog.  All were doomed to shock and  disappointment.  At last the postmaster commenced to haul out large envelopes, marked as coming free from  Ottawa. These envelopes contained a sheet called the Federal  Press Bullentin, with headlines  inches deep, "The Transcontinental Scandal," "Railroading to  Bankruptcy," (this makes us  think of home) etc.  This sheet was at once recognized as the very press report  that has been branded by the  acting minister of railways as  utterly false and devoid of fact.  Of course several copies reach-  Inconsistency.  Mr. Giitelius states, that by  reducing the grades on the Intercolonial Railway, the tonnage on  the trains could be doubled and  by increasing the strength of  the bridges heavier motive power  could be used.  This, says Mr. Gutelius, would  enable business to be handled at  les's than half the present cost of  transportation and would reduce  the total cost of operation by 25  per cent.  This is the same Mr. Gutelius,  who, with his colleague, Mr.  Lynch-Staunton, declared that  the Transcontinental Railway  Commission appointed by the  Laurier government had been  guilty of unpardonable extravagance in having the grades of  ,the Trancontinental reduced to  a minimum and in constructing  steel bridges instead of. wooden  trestles.  o     o     o     o     o  The Cost of It All.  What it cost to have these investigating commissioners compile their fake report is somewhat  interesting.  The two above-mentiened gentlemen were appointed on February 14th, 1912," at a salary of  $65 per'day and expenses. According to a government report,  Mr. Gutelius was paid $27,465.48  and Mr. Lynch-Staunton received  $24,038.01 as remuneration1 for  his services,* in addition to which  $11,884.96 was paid out for their  expenses. .The government report shows that Mr. Gutelius has  also drawn sfnee the first of May  last, on which date he was appointed manager of the Intercolonial Railway, a salary at the  rate of $20,000 a year, or up to  the time the above referred to  report was made, $14,999.74.  Thus for pay and salary allowance alone in less than two years  he has drawn no less than $42,-  465.42  provided with a private car. which  cost the governmentl $17,500.  Can it be wondered that a report  favorable to the Borden govern  ment was made?  No mention is made in the  official return as to whether any  of the expenses of Mr. Lynch-  Staunton, when canvassing for  the Conservative candidate in  South Bruce last October, were  charged up in this account.  o     oy   o     o     o  It is worthy of note that one  of these investigating commissioners, when appointed, was an  American citizen. Hearing that  Mr. Borden had once valiantly  declared, himself determined on  "No trade or truck with the  Yankees,'' he quickly applied the  whitewash brush and is now a  naturalized British subject.  ��������� o     o     o     o     o  Built Out of Revenue.  ' Conservative editorial writers,  pamphleteers and speakers are  using the partisan Gutelius-  Lynch-Staunton report to convey  the impression that Canada is  staggering under the enormous  burden of interest charges on the  National Transcontinental Railway construction cost. Hon. Dr.  Reid, acting minister of railways,  told,the House of Commons the  other day that of $140,562,147  actually expended on the road  so far, only $41,966,890 has been  raised by loans. The rest has  been met out of revenue. When  revenue pays for more than two-  thircls of so large a national development work of permanent  character, it hardly seems to be  a case of the country-"staggering" under its financial load.  o     o     o     o     o  A Summersault.  ( Sir Richard McBride in 1908:  "We have the Grand Trunk Pacific;, we have the C. P. R. building, and presently, no doubt, we  will have Mackenzie & Mann  knocking at our doors. Let us  give decent, . intelligent encouragement to' these undertakings, but nothing else."  By 1914 he has made the Province liable for a burden of indebtedness amounting to some  $122,000,000 for the benefit of  one road alone. A burden that  may yet bankrupt the Province  and retard its development for  a quarter of a century or more.  The Voters' Responsibility.

Editor,  Bella Coola Courier.  Sir,-���������As a resident of Bella  Coola, and one who has always  taken a live interest in anything  connected with the welfare of  the Valley, I would like to draw  the attention of my fellow-residents to what is without a doubt  a very poor outlook for the coming season.  The rumor is, that the government intends to spend only $12, ~  500 in this part of the Skeena  district this year.  The bridge at present under  construction' across the Bella  Coola River will take up about  $8,000, leaving a balance of only  $4,500 for repairs to the roads,  bridges and wharf, the protection of the town from the ravages  of the Necleetsconnay River, the  continuation of the road in the  Upper Valley and many other  things.  Times .are bad. The government is forced to curtail expenses  in regard to public works, "PAR-  T1CULARLY IN THE NORTH."  This is the reason given, and we,  the poor brainless people who  pay the salaries of the men who  are supposed to represent us,  are not even supposed to ask any  questions.  What has the government been  doing with the vast revenues of  the Province for the past few  years? Have they been developing the "country? Let us consider the Northern part of the  Province. Last year the government spent, roughly speaking,  half a million dollars. This year  that amount is reduced by half.  Now, with this greatly reduced  amount, let us see what these  men, who would have us believe  that they have a corner on the  supply of intelligence, will do'to  develop the country and encourage settlement. They will  tell you' that they are going to  build roads and bridges. Where  are these roads and bridges? We  have one in this valley, which  has cost over two hundred thousand dollars and is not naif completed. It was the declared intention of the government to  connect it with the Cariboo road,  but at the present fate of progress, we of this generatiod will  never witness its completion.  The government says it is not  their policy to undertake any  temporary work. Their standai'd  is work that will withstand the  wear and tear of many years.  We of'Bella'Coola know how true  this is. Look around as you  travel over our road. You have  lots of time for so doing. It  would be cruelty to horses to  drive faster than a walk. Is this  the best work these brainy gov-  ment men can do? Is this their  high standard? I think it must  be the beautiful scenery that  dazzles the person who passes  such work and calls it good. See  three roads side by side. Each  of them cost good money.

"M&m all over   the   Province  ''$M& the same complaint, that  '0my  appropriated  for public  '^Srks  is  being   squandered to  Scurry favor with men who use  '*' politics simply to make an easy  'living,  i        If members of the government  woujf only use their brains they  %4a perhaps realize that they  must have efficient men to carry  out their public works, and not  just give employment to cripples  and men who are incapable of  undertaking the work for which  they are well paid.  "By their works shall ye know  them." Personally, I would hate  to be held responsible for the  government's work in this part  of Northern B.C.      .  Wake up all you people who, like  me, are responsible for the present government.  It has.been said that the people  of Bella Coola are al wayskicking.  That part of it is all right. Kick  harder still. The members of  the government have betrayed  the trust you honored them with.  The government have dazzled  us all with talk of the huge sums  derived from the sale of our  natural resources, and we like  fools have allowed them to spend  it with wanton recklessness and  extravagance to little or no lasting benefit to the Provjnce, and  today we are reaping the benefit,  PARTICULARLY IN THE  NORTH.  ,.  Imagine the government of  this Province having the nerve  to tell the people that they cannot afford to spend the paltry  sums that they have been spending on public works for the past  few years, but must necessarily  cut them down to half.
