The day has been relatively calm, with no modification  in situation.    We have retained  all ground  which we gained in  the  last few  days.    In  Champagne, Germans took from us ir,  the region   of   Beausejour  30C  metres   of   advanced   trenches.  We have retaken half of them.  In Argonne, near Marie Therese,  an attack attempted by Germans  was immediately checked by us.  At Les Esparges enemy has bombarded but delivered no further  attack?.    Same thing has occurred at Hartmann's Weilerkopf,  Germans directing an intense fire  against the summit but made no  attack.    On April 27 our aviators  launched 32 shells on station at  Bollweiler   (seven**miles  north-  west of Mulhausen), and sixty  shells  on  station  at Chambley  where they set fire to a depot of  munitions.    Station of Armaulle  on Lorraine frontier, and junction of railways of Chambley and  Thiaucourt have'been bombarded  at night.    On April 28 one of our  aeroplanes   dropped  six projectiles on hangars of dirigibles at  Friedrichshafen, the aviator observed  clouds  of smoke  rising  from  the roofs of  one hangar.  Twentyone    shells   have    been  dropped on station, the bridges,  and  a  factory  at  Leopoldsche,  Baden.     During this bombardment one of our aeroplanes fell  within the German lines.  During  the day, four German aeroplanes  were pursued and reached by our  aviators.    One being well ablaze  fell within the lines of the enemy  nearBremont.    Two others came  to earth near our trenches, one  in Champagne and the other in  region of Amore, and were destroyed  by  our artillery.    The  fourth fell well within our lines  at Muizon, west of Rheims, two  German aviators who were not  wounded were taken prisoners.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  The S. S."Cam������sun arrived 'in  port Sunday, forenoon and remained until 4 p. m. The usual  amount of freight was landed  and among the passengers we  noticed Mr. E. R. A. Russell, of  the Bank of B. N. A., and his  mother Mrs. Russell ; Mrs. B.  Brynildsen, her son Alger and  daughter Grace; Mr. G. B. Oleson  of Hagensborg, and Mr. T. G.  Garrett, representing Gault Bros,  of Vancouver.  0  Mr. Russell will spend two  weeks of his vacation with  friends gained during his stay  here as an official in the local  branch of the Bank of B> N. A.  He and his mother who accompanies him are stopping at Mrs.  Clayton's.  Mrs. Brynildsen returned after  a protracted visit to Vancouver  and New Westminster.  After frequenting the Colum-  Coola, but at the call to arms  they dropped everything and  hastened to offer their services.  AH three are now with the colors.  We learn it is the intention of  the Union Steamship Co. of B. C.  during the continuance of the  Exosition, to engage the Camosun in making regular runs to  San Francisco, commencing in  the month of June.  , A valuable fox was lost a short  time ago from the fox farm located here; efforts are being made  to trap it, as some of the boys  saw it close to the town during  the last week.  The many friends of Mr. Frank  G. Andreae, for a long time engaged at Ocean Falls will be interested to learn that he is ren-  denng distinguished service in  the war.

Tucker, the Indian  constable, left last Monday morning for Anaham Lake to investigate an epidemic said to be carrying off the children of the Indians  located in the country surrounding the lake.  The Mission Church proved to  be an all day attraction to the  Indians last Sunday. The signing of the temperance pledge  recorded in the Courier last week  was continued. The service became impressive when among a  number of others, noted characters as Humpback Tommy, Charlie Goose and old Doctor Aleck  came forward, signed the pledge  and were prayed with by the  missionary and Rev. T. C. Colwell, who took part in the afternoon service.  The total number of Indians  who have signed the pledge within the two weeks are 116 adults  arid about 30 children.  reached Bella Coola. Almost  everybody seem to take a friendly interest in this cause, which a  few years ago was considered  an outworn fad. The meeting  was presided over by Mr. O. C.  Olson the president of the society,  and Mr. Hjalmar Schu'lstad held  the position of secretary, and  therefore wielded the pencil on  the occasion.  The audience opened the program by singing a- rousing temperance song to the tune of  ."Marching through Georgia."  Then the Bella Coola String  Band and Choir came forth and  rendered very creditably a selection, after which speeches, singing and music came in succession,  and a long one at that. The  meeting lasted for more than two  hours and everybody enjoyed it.  The society numbers about 80  members and new ones are being  added at all the,meetings which  are being held once every month.  It was decided to suspend the  meetings during the summer  months, as nearly all the young  men will be out fishing.  In the evening almost the same  number of people gathered again,  this time to attend the organization of a Young People's Missionary Society. Before the organization, the meeting was presided  over by the Rev. H. Sageng, who  explained the object of the proposed organization and read a.  draft of a constitution. The  constitution was adopted, twenty  members were enrolled and then  the following were elected officers of the society:  Rev. H. Sageng, president; Mr.  Hjalmar Schulstad, vice-president; Miss Gertrude Fredland,  secretary ; and Mr. Theodore  Livelton, treasurer. A short  speech was then made and the  meeting closed at 10 o'clock, and  Come and look them over and lrx> j a very strenuous Sunday was at  | them on before deciding to buy elsewhere, j an en^ wjth n0 headache in the  We also trim and furnish trimming | morning after the night before.  for hats at reasonable rates. j    J^adies of Bella Coola  Galley are most cordially invited to inspect our stock of Ladies'  and Children's SUMMER HATS.

The flames  spread to two adjoining houses,  which, within an hour, were almost destroyed. After dropping  other bombs the aircraft then  passed on to Whitton, where it  also dropped bombs.

Mr. Birger Brynildsen who has just recovered from  a sickness of some length-will  remain at the college until the  end of the term.  Mr\ Olsen has spent about two  months in California, during  which time he visited the Panama Exposition at San Francisco.  The captain and other officers  of the Camosun availed themselves of the steamer's long stay  at the wharf to make a trip some  distance up the valley.  A very pretty wedding took  place at the Mission Church last  Sunday when Eliza Mack was  married to Samuel Moody. The  Indians had shown considerable  taste in the decoration of the  church with wild flowers for the  occasion.  .Local readers will be interested  to hear .that Robert Lowe, who  for a number of years has been  surveying in this district, has  received a commission in the  Scottish Horse, a regiment raised  by Lord Tullibardine.

SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1915.  .     -  ��������� I "  Sir Richard's Mistake.  In our last issue we tried to  show the  necessity of a fairly  . strong1   opposition    in .- passing-  sound legislation.  The McBride Government, in  its campaign before the last  election made such a strong fight  that all its Liberal opponents  were defeated. It seemed from  the result of that election, that  Sir Richard js not a believer in  the need and usefulness of criticism.  In that campaign his popularity was at its height,, the people  had such confidence in his ability,  as an administrator of the affairs  of the province that he could  'have been re-elected upon almost  i  any. policy he would have seen  fit to set forth, and no one. was  better aware of that than Sir  Richard himself. He .stated,  during this campaign, that there  was no electoral district in the  province he.could not carry, and  he did carry all but two, where  Socialists won. In attaining  this result he used his genius as  a campaigner, the great prestige,  power, and apparent success of  his administration with unrelent-  " ing vigor.   :  We cannot believe that in his  effort to stifle all opposition, he  was promted by a wicked desire  to pass injurious legislation or  conduct an' administration corrupt in  its  practises.     Let us  rather  believe it  was* done to  show an admiring world   that  here was a man, with an extraordinary ability and popularity-  a man  who, when opportunity  offered, could swing any undertaking into a g'reat success.   But  his   unmeasured   ambition   was  hisundoing. . When at the height  of his popularity, he made the  great   mistake   of   his   public  career.    In our opinion he should  have offered no opposition to Mr.  Brewster, the leader of the Opposition.    He should have welcomed, the election of Mr. John  Oliver and a few other Liberals.  H.e should have   in  some  way  made known to the voters in the  districts   where   such   Liberals  were candidates, that by electing  ��������� these opposition  members they  should not suffer in the bestowal  of favors by the  Government.  But instead of doing this he made  specially great efforts to defeat  the stronger Liberal candidates,  as for instance in the  case of  the  leader of   the   Opposition.  Later, at the by-election held in  the Islands district, there was an  opportunity to get a Liberal opponent elected, but Sir Richard  saw no need  of criticism  and,  therefore, in order to defeat the  Liberal candidate the best campaign orators of the administration was employed-, large amounts  of money   were   expended   for  public works, to placate the public ; with the result that the opposition candidate,was defeated.  We are.no prophets, but we  believe that Sir Richard McBride,  who, was at one time in a fair  way of   obtaining  the  highest  position within the gift of the  people of this great Dominion,  has reached the point where is  star is now declining.    His great  success  carried  him   away,   he  lost his  balance and   failed  to  avail himself of his opportunity  to remain the leader of this great  province and, very likely, eventually to become the'premierof the  Dominion.  GIL LETT'S  LYE  EATS DIRT"  themselves of above charges they  would be" more useful to the  nation.  The Socialist Members. J  We would not intentionally belittle the opposition offered to  the Government by the -two  Socialist members of the Legislature. It has- been conducted  with signal abilit}', and Mr. Parker Williams, the leader, should  be commended for the manner  in which it has been done.  But the Courier is not a.Social-  istic paper and must therefore  be pardoned for holding the  opinion that for several reasons  the opposition of the Socialist  members is not sufficient to hold'  the corrupt element of-the party  in power in check.  They are too few in numbers,  they ' have not. the substantial  backing the other two leading  parties enjoy; they pre-eminently,  represent a class rather than a  composite body of the people and,  therefore, -do not possess the  weight and influence necessary.  Then again, people at large are  apt to accuse Socialists of holding extreme views, defending,  strikes and subsequent riots,  having disrespect for the christian religion and sympathizing  with the views and practises of  the I. W.'W.  If the   Socialists   could   free  Signs of Peace.  As the  war   is dragging its  weary, gruesome way from week  to week, we are anxiously scanning the news coming to our office for any indications of the  end drawing near.    Astherecan  be no hope of lasting peace unless  Germany's   military spirit and  ambition is brought low, we look  towards Germany for the signs  of a desire for peace.   Last week  we published some extracts from  a very prominent German newspaper . confessing  that   victory  against the ..great  odds which  their country was fighting was  well nigh hopeless.    This time  we quote from the Province of  Vancouver, some, more extracts  from another German newspaper,  the Berlin Tag:  ' 'We have been deceived in all  our calculations.  "We expected that .the whole  of India would revolt at the first  sound of guns in Europe, but,  lo! thousands and tens of thousands of Indians are now fighting'  with the .English against us.  "We expected that the British.  Empire would crumble to pieces,  but the  British   colonies, have  united, as they have never done  before, with the mother country.  was degenerate ond incapable of  being a serious factor in the war,  and she shows herself to be our  most dangerous enemy.  "It was the same thing with  France and Russia. We thought  that France was corrupt, and  that she had lost the sense of  national solidarity, but we now  learn that the French are formidable adversaries.  "We thought that Russia>could  do nothing; we believed that  her people wejrc too profoundly  discontented to fight in favor of  the Russian Government; we  counted on its rapid .collapse as  a great military power, but Russia has mobilized her millions of  men very rapidly and very well.  Her people are-full of enthusiasm  and her force is crushing.  "Those who-ha^ve-led us into  all these faults, aft.these calculations, all these mistakes about  our neighbors:! and their affairs,  have assumed a,heavy burden of  responsibility."  Other signs-are becoming numerous. "Feelers" from German and Austrian sources are  being sent out to ascertain on  what terms peace can be obtained; These countries are already willing to make some concessions, but not nearly as far  reaching as the Allies will demand.  A peace-conference attended  by some of the greatest statesmen of'the countries at war is  said to have been held at Rome,  but with what result is kept  strictly secret.  For Results Use  a  P.

The battlefields of Ypres  where  we  lost so "heavily (and  gained so much) will be revenged  very   shortly.     I saw  a  pretty  fight in the air two or three days  ago.    A German aeroplane and  two of ours fighting, one soaring  above the other trying to gain  an   advantage,   when   suddenly  the German canted sideways and  then   nose  first took a dip for  mother earth, you can guess the  rest.    Our airmen and the French  are very clever.    It seems to me  that the Germans are not in it  with the British in every branch  of warfare, (a great surprise to  me.)    In the last big fight, our  artillery turned some of the GeV-  mans crazy, the shooting by our  guns being very terrible and accurate, the number killed cannot  be exaggerated, it was terrible;  they threw down their arms and  implored for mercy.    They did  not show any mercy to our men  at Ypres   when they bayoneted  our wounded, as, they retreated.  Enough  said !       The  prisoners  were from boys of 1.5 to men 55  years of age.    They were in a  poor   emaciated   condition   and  yellow looking from the effects  of our shell fire.     They told one  of our interpreters that the shell  tire was "Hell".    Some of these  men went crazy from the effects.  Well,   L don't  know -whether  this letter, will pass or not, but  if I cannot send you a little news  it Ms not worth writing at all. We  have almost the best troops in  France and whatever is said in  their praise they have earned it;  they are steady in the trenches,  good shots, and very aggressive.  We are all in good trim, and our  casualty list very small considering everything.  No. 48027, P. J. Kenyon,  1st Canadian Contingent.  (Head-quarter staff.)

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 farm pro-'  duce from Bella Coola Valley carried 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!

"No manufacturer or wholesalehbuse can  afford to let slip the opportunity of increased  sales that public advertising brings.  rV'EAL ESTATE' booms in the  - cities have come and gone.  People are beginning to flock to  the country. . The North-West-  Coast of British Columbia offers  opportunities for all. Did not  know- is no excuse. Investors  should keep posted on developments by reading the "Courier."  You are judged by the  stationery that you use.  Let us do your job printing.   We will do it right.  Salisbury is coming to life! The  sleepy, ecclesiastical serenity of  the cathedral city is stirring itself. The inhabitants are rubbing  their eyes; "getting a move on,"  as the popular jargon expresses  it.    They are finding that, after  all, the "rustic murmur of their  burgh is not the great wave that  echoes round  the  world," and  are asking each other what this  new feeling of life and activity  in which, 1 iIre a wave come washing in from the great world beyond the precints of their cathedral close, bringing in its train a  freshness   and  vivacity ��������� almost  sacrilegious.  The answer is, "The Canadians  have arrived ! "'  The flower ol  the manhood  of the West has  come, accompanied by that brilliant,   bubbling,   pulsating life,  with the smell.of the good brown,  earth of thepraries'and ranches,  or the scent of the pine covered  Rockies, and of the fruit ladened  orchards of the Eastern plains.  Here they are, the men with the  well-knit,.finely braced physical  frames, at once our admiration  and  envy,   with   that   freedom  from restraint which makes-them  so engaging, but also with- that  quiet decorum which keeps you  on your guard all the time, lest  one loose phrase or suggestion  should banish .for ever that esteem which you fain would win.  In a moment you are proud of  them.  The camps lie 14 miles across  the Plain as the crow flies from  Salisbury to Devizes. To get to  them is your main difficulty. On  the'visiting-days.you will find  that the owners of the limited  supply of motorcars in Salisbury  require high prices for the trip.  But if you are lucky enough to  get away Mr; a fast travelling  car, you- wilt accomplish the  journey in 40 minutes. The car  darts past stray knots of soldiers  outward or homeward bound.  Here a cavalryman is giving his  horse an exercise. There alum-  bering transport wagon wends  its heavy way towards the camps.  But at last in the distance the  white tents appear. They are  pitched on either side of the road;  and as your car passes along, a  hundred manly forms line the  edge of the turf arid watch your  progress, not. 'with inquisitive  stare, but with a quiet self-reliance which at once brings you  up against their chief character-  D istic. When you alight, you are  for the moment the "centi-al object of attention. You accost the  nearest indi-vidual with, "could  a you tell me how to find D Company, 16th Battalion*?'' At once  you have placed yourself right  with him. To be of service to  you was just what he wanted.  "16th Battalion? Well, Iguess  you can't be' very far away, because (pointing to a camp indicator) these are the lines of the  14th, and they run in that direction. The 16th must be farther  along. Anyway, come along,  and we'll see."  You proceed, and the stalwart  figure of your guide goes leisurely forward. You venture on the  remark that you are glad to see  such a fine turnout of men.  "Well, yes, and we are mighty  pleased to be here, lean tell you.  The only trouble is that we don't  want to be sticking around this  Plain too long."  ���������  "You want to go to the front."  "I should say we do.    That's  what we've come for,  and the  sooner we get there the better  we shall like it."  We pass the indicator of the  14th Battalion.  "These are the lines of the 14th  and the 15th is next. So you'll  and the 16th just beyond."  You thank him and proceed;  but at the end of the 15th the  lines suddenly cease; there is no  16th ! ��������� A sentry is on duty here,  and as he happens to be the only  man nearby, you make up your  mind to enquire of him. It is  with some hesitancy that you  approach him, as you are not  quite sure whether he ought to  VANCOUVER LAND DISTRICT  DISTBICT   OF   COAST���������BAJJGE   HI.  TaKe Notice that Oliver T.

On  the other side of the road"  (pointing in an opposite direction) "just opposite to where  the band is playing."^  The soldier continues his sentry-go, you retrace your steps,,  cross the road and  make your  enquiries  again off a  group  of  fellows.    One of them immediately'detaches himself and voluntarily places himself at your  service.    You are_ informed that  these are the; lines of the 16th,  but you unconsciously ask yourself how you are to pick out the  right tent from the rows  that  confront you.     The dilemma is  immediately   anticipated,   and  your guide comes to your rescue  with,   "Come right along,   and  we'll go to the sergeant's quarters.    What's the name of your  friend?"     With  that  he pulls  back the opening of the tent,  pokes his head in and makes the  enquiry.    A man is. told off to  search through the tents until  the friend is found.  When the greetings are over,  your are invited to partake of the  hospitality of the camp. Now  come right into our tent and make  yourself comfortable." Which  you do.
