It is therefore possible that from now on  the run north of Ocean Falls will  be abandoned.  At this time several of the  Bella Coola residents returned  after short triys. Among them  were Chas.

Constantinople, Mar. 15���������Turkish"' troops take up new positions somewhere between Bagdad-  and Samara. i  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  Ocean Falls News.  Encouraged by the achievements of the Red Cross Society  the ladies who are interested in  church matters have organized a  "Ladies Aid Society" with the  following officers: Mrs. J. R.  Morrison, president; Mrs. A. D.  Nevin, treasurer; and Mrs. A.  Metcalf, secretary.  The great object of this society  is the erection of a fine church,  on the institutional plan. The  ladies propose that in connection  with it be a hall, reading rooms  and a Sunday schoolroom which  can be thrown open to connect  with the auditorium of church  in case of a large audience.  And to cap this ambitious, but  by no means unattainable object,  a fine bell will be procured the  sweet tones of which will prove  so irresistible that, according to  Mr. Lancaster who intends to  ring it, everyone within hearing  will answer the call.  The first angling for the elusive  dollars took place at Mrs. Morrison's home on Tuesday evening.  Tea and cake were served at the  nominal fee of ten cents.    ���������'  This evening the ladies of the  Red Cross are giving a masked  ball. There will, be four prizes  given, two for the finest costumes  and  two for the funniest.    It  should prove a great attraction.  The Red Cross in its short  career has already collected the  sum of ' $282. A part of this  money has been expended in the  purchase of a lot of material  which the ladies have been working up into such finearticles that  when the sale occurs the moneyed  men of our town, which means  all of them, will outbid each other  in order to be the happy possessors of such useful and artistic  wares. At the present time the  society has at the bank a balance  to its credit of $117.00.  The activities of the public-  spirited people of our town will  soon make this place so attractive that the scarcity of labor  felt at industrial centres will become a thing of the past here. -  Another organization which  will prove a means towards that  end and a source of entertainment is in the course of being  launched. It is to be a ''community chorus" and is in charge  of E. Penn��������� conductor, with C.  Penh; Mrs.' J. R. Morrison and  Mrs. A. D. Nevin as assistants.  S. S. Camosun arrived, in-the  middle afternoon on Saturday.'  The traffic has already began to  increase to such extent that it  Dr. Sutherland had been away  two weeks at Victoria. She apparently was not aware that/four  patients awaited her at the hospital, because we noticed that  another pa'tierit'eame along witn  her from Smith's Inletwho need-  ��������� i      i -��������� i , ' -  ed surgical treatment,    ''        *��������� ���������  The fame of the Bella Coola  Hospital and ^ its doctor is such  that this patient passed two or-  more hospitals on the way here  and we know he will not regret  doing so.  .  Our different government officials, Tucker, Fougner and  Broughton. must take a ,look  round their respective districts  at short intervals to keep things  moving smoothly. ,,And , they  seem to succeed well; they never  bring reports of riots or trouble  of any kind to gladden the heart  of the Courier reporter.  Earl Stoessiger had decided  that he deserved a vacation after  landing such great quantities of  fish last summer and consequently has spent the winter in the  balmy climes of Oregon. He now  feels equal to another effort at  the fish.  Victor Carlson came back from  a two months stay at Ocean Falls.  The smell of spring and lure of-  the farm became too strong for  him and he is now on his father's  ranch making arrangements for  the production of the .biggest  crop ever raised at Noosatsum.  The Ratcliff family received  another contingent of several  persons from their former home  in Oregon. <  Bella Coola offers attractions  superior to those of the webfoot  state, hence thisfurtheraddition  to the number of our permanent  settlers.   We and many with us will regret to learn that A. R.

"For God so loved the world  that he gave his only begotten  Son, that whosoever believeth on  him should not perish, but have  eternal life."  I think, this verse is held by  most Christians as the chief onei  of the ,he\y testament, that it  contains a simple,* plain stated  ment of the Gospel. Those who  read this verse will agree that it  tells of a plan whereby man may  not perish but live constinuously,  that it is God's plan, not man's.  God lives continuously or he could  not help man continually to live.  But why does God ever live, and  why does man die? Solomon tells  us that in the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway  thereof there is no death.  Paul says: "For Moses writeth  that the man-that doeth the  righteousness which is of the law  shall live thereby. Israel following after a law of righteousness  did not arrive at that law. And  that call have sinned, and fall  short of the glory of God. He  also tells us, as does John, how ,  we may be freed from sin and  obtain righteousness. God ever  lives because he ever does right.  Man dies' because'he has failed  to ever do right. Nothing can  last long that goes wrong;  It would also seem from Johnj  3-16, that man's plans to do right  and live forever had failed, or  God. would not have needed a  plan to help^man. But he gave  his only begotten Son. A Son of  God, and therefore God, and  those who accept this help from  God have a righteousness from  God and eternal life. No doubt  it was a struggle for God to give  his only Son to us, as it would be  to any parent to give an only son  away.  BELLA COOLA AND DISTRICT RED  CROSS AND PATRIOTIC FUNDS   .

An American syndicate has  prepared ulans it intends to submit to the government for the  extension of the Pacific Great  .Eastern railway into the Peace  j River country and for long branch  will bring the vast  hinterland into close rail proximity with Uiis coast. The syndicate, it is understood, is prepared to go so far as to take over  the completion of the present  line which is under contract to  Mr. P. Welsh, of Foley, Welsh  & Stewart.  In the outlining of these plans,  besides,the development of the  fertile land and great resources  in mineral, the wheat fields of  Alberta and the westward route  of grain is being taken into consideration with a view of showing the vast importance of Ifiot  (Continued on page 4, column 2.)  OILLETT'5 LYE  EATS DIRT"  SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 1917.  Railway to Bella Coola.  That' another and different  class of men is at the head of  provincial affairs is ��������� becoming  more and more evident as the  plans of the government are assuming shape and made public.  ���������And that the, change from a  lawyer-run " government   to   a  business   government   is   very  likely to affect to an appreciable  extent even our humble settlement appears from a despatch  ,from Victoria, dated March 1.  , Some years ago it was the intention of-^Mackenzie & Mann to  build   the   Canadian   Northern  ��������� ��������� to Bella Coola and make this port  its Pacific terminus.     This did  ���������. not suit the McBride government  presumably  because there was  not a sufficient political pull in  Bella Coola to yield the political  capital by, which the government  could   be   made  stronger;   and  therefore it did not accede to a  business   proposition  of   that  nature.   And the result was that  the road  went   to  the  Frazer  Valley, paralleling the C. P. R.  from Kamloops   to   the coast,  with Vancouver as the terminus.  A concession to the bulk of the  voters of the province like this  would in the minds of the politicians bring them to their support.   And it did;  but not for  long.    The - first election after  this move.returned all Conservatives members with the exception of two socialists.   But a reaction set in and the politicians  who    thought    themselves    so  shrewd are now utterly discredited and'in a very small minority  in the present legislature.  .' After the Canadian Northern  had abandoned the Bella Coola  route, a syndicate tried to get  government aid for a road from  Bella Coola .through the Peace  River Valley.   This was,the Pacific &' Hudson   Bay -Railway.  But, according to the.promoter,  the McBride government did not  give this proposition proper encouragement, and then the war  came on and put a stop to the  plans for-the time being at least.  But with the Brewster governT  ment the welfare of the province  as & ��������� whole is rpf.; more concern  than   the\ strengthening of  a  political party.   And as a result  the possibility of a railroad to  Bella Coola with its many advantages   in   comparison   with  other routes in contemplation is  receiving serious attention.  The despatch referred to reads  as follows:  *'"' KIOU 0������l������,������G-������v.l OIMCI.O* W*"* *  ���������"Mr* -  ETTCOMPANYUMlTj;  TORONTO OUT.  The Legislative Session.  The attention of all who have  the welfare of the province at  heart will now for a few weeks  be directed towards, the legislature now'in session at Victoria.  It [is seldom, if ever, that so  many serious and difficult problems have confronted a British  Columbia   legislature   as   those  now awaiting to be dealt with.  That they will be approached  and  hand fed  by experienced  business men who have a stake  in the province, men imbued by  courage, and' patriotism should  inspire confidence, and, indeed,  the indications are that Conservatives as well as Liberals hail  the new legislative body as one  that will inaugurate a new era  in the affairs of our province.  The program laid before the  assembly in the speech from the  throne is quite extensive and  "will, most likely, require more'  time than the six weeks allotted  to tne length of the session. "  The defenders of the liberties  of the land receive the first attention. A memorial to the fallen will be erected on the old  Court House site at Vancouver.  Provisions will be made for  taking care' of the returned  soldiers.  With Hon. T. D, Pattullo and  Hon. John Oliver looking after  the agricultural interests new  and improved ways of settling  the Jand will be adopted, and  measures taken to so develop the  agricultural resources that the  province will   become self-sup  porting.  The mineral resources of the  province will be systematically  prospected, which no doubt will  bring far better results than the  haphazard manner hitherto pursued.   < ������        o        '  Smelting of the ore, will be  donewithin the province, obviat-  ing the necessity of sending bur  ore to a foreign'' country to be  treated.  The conservation of the fisheries will be considered and improved; and with the-practical  men at the' head of the governr  ment this important industry  will no doubt receive a strong  impetus. ,  And with Hon. John Oliver as  minister of railways it goes without saying that the affairs of the  Pacific Great Eastern Railway  will be subjected to a strong  searchlight in the way of an investigation.  Additional revenues must be  provided to meet the'heavy outlays of which interest .on debt,  sinking fund and payment of  interest on railway bonds form  the largest part.  o      ������     O      O     O  Mr.'Bowser certainly is not  without a sense of humor, and  his stock of /gall evidently has  suffered no diminution. He wants  to know'why the attorney-general has taken no steps to prosecute those who helped John T.  Scott to escape. , Mr. ��������� Bowser  was attorney-general when Scott  obtained bail and he was attorney-general when that bail was  jumped and Scott escaped. Why  did he not do something?  O       O       O       O       O '.  There are two parties in different parts, of the world whom  Mr. Bowser does not want to see  back in British Columbia. One  is Sir Richard McBride and the  other is John T. Scott. The for-  mer would get his job and the  latter would get his goat.  ���������,   '���������   l     O       i       O       O       O  Germany's Evil Nature.

DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE, OTTAWA, ,     '  OCTOBER 7th, 1916. <  The Soldier and the White  ' Plague.  A very interesting sketch by a  soldier of what happens in a  military sanatorium for tuberculosis has just been published by  the.Military Hospitals Commission. Rest, unlimited fresh air,  and proper feeding of course  play a large part in the treatment organized' by the Military  -Hospitals Commission; but exercise, carefully graduated, and  - interesting occupations are also  employed with most valuable results in restoring the patient to-  , health and energy of body "and  mind.  Of the 3480 invalided soldiers  now being cared for by the ������om-  mission in Canada, 511 are suffering from tuberculosis, besides  91 remaining in English sanatoria. - *  All these 605 men were passed  by medical officers as sound in  -���������wind and limb at the time of enlistment. Some of them, doubtless, in their eagerness to serve  at the. front, concealed facts  which would have aroused the  doctor's suspicions. Others did  not know that their lungs were  affected. It is often difficult to  detect the trouble in its early  stages.  In 223 of the 605, the disease  was discovered before the men  had   a chance to go overseas.  That is, it developed under no  greater hardship than' that of  camp life���������no more severe than  the experience of a hunting excursion in the woods, which so  many people undertake as a holiday recreation.  What does it mean, this dis  covery of 605 "consumptives"  even among the picked men who  should be above the average in  health and strength?   ,  -It means this. The seeds of  the disease have been sown in  thousands of apparently healthy  folk, and simply lie quiet till  some' new circumstance' gives  them a chance to spring up and  attack the body infected by them.  Then they, give 'the man a fight  for his life. .  If there is one thing certain,  it. is that the disease can be  stamped out.  This can "only be done by combining prevention with cure.  Nearly all consumptives can be  cured, if the-dis'easehasnot been  i  allowed to get very far. And  .the example set by the thorough  treatment now given to tubercu-  lous" soldiers-should be'followed  in dealing with" all others attacked by the disease.  So much for the question of  the cure. Still more important  is the question of prevention.  The seeds cannot grow if they  are not sown. We must prevent  them from being sown.  Those who have the disease  can and must be taught how to  avoid giving it to others. And  all of us must learn to avoid those  evil conditions of life which allow  the seeds first to enter our bodies  and then to germinate and attack  us.  Good ventilation, sunlight, and  good food thoroughly masticated  and digested- with these on our  side we can defy the enemy.  Now,' more than ever before,  it is urgently necessary to increase the health and efficiency  of every Canadian, so .that when  peace comes we can make good  the waste of life and health  caused by the war. Unhealthy  conditions of life and labor must  be rooted out as deadly enemies  of ou-r country's prosperity.  Such conditions' exist .both ��������� in  town and country, though much  worse in town.  Governments, municipal authorities, anti-tuberculosis leagues,  and all of us as private citizens,  should more energetically than  ever, perfect the efficiency of  the methods used.  A little hand-book entitled  "Fighting Tuberculosis,", by  Lieut. J. R. Buyers, C.A.M.C.;'  who has charge of the two sanatoria at Ste. Agathe, has-just  been published by the Military  Hospitals Commission for the  soldiers concerned. Similar pamphlets have been given out by  certain local organizations and  insurance companies.  The .seeds of safety, in such  publications, should be spread as  widely and cultivated as actively  as the seeds of "danger are now  being spre"ad and cultivated by  our neglect.

A line from Dunvegan to the  coast at a point about Bella Coola  by way of Pine pass give's the  shortest route of 490 miles.  Against this the distance via the  proposed.lines and the P. G. E.  connection is 968 miles. Also  another alternate route via Pine  pass and the P. G. E. from Dun-  vegan is 868 miles; another is  550 miles and yet another is only  500 miles.  The proposal as yet is in the  embryo state, but it is stated  engineers are at work on the  proposition and the routes suggested have been determined to  be feasible, so that the concrete  proposition may be in shape to  place before the government di-mot want to build a railroad just  reclly. ���������  It will be noticed that the route  to Bella Coola is'the shortest and  that fact will count for considerable with business men who do  to' make money in its construction 'by letting fat contracts to  themselves, but who want a railroad that in the operation will  pay profits to the stockholders.

Encouraged by the achievements of the Red Cross Society  the ladies who are interested in  church matters have organized a  "Ladies Aid Society" with the  following officers: Mrs. J. R.  Morrison, president; Mrs. A. D.  Nevin, treasurer; and Mrs. A.  Metealf, secretary.  The great object of this society  is the erection of a fine church,  on the institutional plan. The  ladies propose that in connection  with it be a hall, reading rooms  and a Sunday schoolroom which  can be thrown open to connect  with the auditorium of church  in case of a large audience.  And to cap this ambitious, but  by no means unattainable object,  a fine bell will be procured the  sweet tones of which will prove  so irresistible that, according to  Mr. Lancaster who intends to  ring it, everyone within hearing-  will answer the call.  The first angling for the elusive  dollars took place at Mrs. Morrison's home on Tuesday evening.  Tea and cake were served at the  nominal fee of ten cents.  This evening the ladies of the  Red Cross are giving a masked  ball. There will be four prizes  given, two for the finest costumes  and  two  for  the  funniest.     It  should prove a great attraction.  The Red Cross in its short  career has already collected the  sum of $282. A part of this  money has been expended in the  purchase of a lot of material  which the ladies have been working up into such fine articles *"hat  when the sale occurs the moneyed  men of our town, which means  all of them, will outbid each other  in order to be the happy possessors of such useful and artistic  wares. At the present time the  society has at the bank a balance  to its credit of $117.00.  The activities of the public-  spirited people of our town will  soon make this place so attractive that the scarcity of labor  felt at industrial centres will become a thing of the past here. -  Another organization which  will prove a means towards that  end and a source of entertainment is in the course of being  launched. It is to be a "community chorus" and is in charge  of E. Penn, conductor, with C.  Penn; Mrs. J. R. Morrison and  Mrs. A. D. Nevin as assistants.  S. S. Camosun arrived in the  middle afternoon on Saturday.  The traffic has already began to  increase to such extent that it  Dr. Sutherland had been away  two weeks at Victoria. She apparently was not aware that four  patients awaited her at the hospital, because we noticed that  another patient came along witn  her from Smith's Inlet who needed surgical treatment.  The fame of the Bella Coola  Hospital and its^ doctor, is such  that this patient passed two or  more hospitals on the way here  and we know he will not regret  doing so. "  Our different government officials, Tucker, Fougner and  Broughton must take a .look  round their respective districts  at short intervals to keep things  moving smoothly. Arid they  seem to succeed well; they never  bring reports of riots or trouble  of any kind to gladden the heart  of the Courier reporter.  Earl Stoessiger had decided  that he deserved a vacation after  landing such great quantities of  fish last summer and consequently has spent the winter in the  balmy climes of Oregon. He now  feels equal to another effort at  the fish.   Victor Carlson came back from  a two months stay at Ocean Falls.  The smell of spring and lure of  the farm became too strong for  him and he is now on his father's  ranch making arrangements for  the production of the biggest  crop ever raised at Noosatsum.  The Ratcliff family received  another contingent of several  persons from their former home  in Oregon.  Bella Coola offers attractions  superior to those of the webfoot  state, hence this further addition  to the number of our permanent  settlers.   We and many with us will regret to learn that A. R.

I think this verse is held by  most Christians as the chief one  of the new testament, that it  contains a simple,, plain stated  ment of the Gospel. Those who  read this verse will agree that it  tells of a plan whereby man may  not perish but.live constinuously,  that it is God's plan, not man's.  God lives continuously or he could  not help man continually to live.  But why does God ever live, and  why does man die? Solomon tells  us that in the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway  thereof there is no death.  Paul says: "ForMoses writeth  that  the   man   that   doeth the  righteousness which is of the law  shall live thereby.   Israel following after a law of righteousness  did not arrive at that law.    And  that  all   have  sinned,   and fall  short of the glory of God.    He  also tells us, as does John, how  we may be freed from sin and  obtain righteousness.    God ever  lives because he ever does right.  Man dies because he has failed  to ever do right.    Nothing can  last long that goes wrong.  It would also seem from John;  3-16, that man's plans to do right  and live forever had failed, or  God. would not have needed a  plan to help man. But he gave  his only begotten Son. A Son of  God, and therefore God, and  those who accept this help from  God have a righteousness from  God and eternal life. No doubt  it was a struggle for God to give  his only Son to us, as it would be  to any parent to give an only son  away.

Grant, Experimenter^  gineered by the German government to bring Japan and Mexico  into war with the United States  has opened the eyes of the people  to the fact that Germany in her  lust for power and world conquest is like a tiger turned loose  upon humanity.  Those people who have pointed  with scorn at "the war-mad nations who fight against Germany  will now at last see that this war  is as well justified as a fight  against a furious wild beast at  large killing people and destroying property would be.  The leading paper- in State of  Washington, the Seattle Post Intelligencer, has this to say on the  evil designs of Germany to extend the war area still further:  "A European peace  without  victory, in the uKnt of th.  lations   of   German  would be a crime,  t'j.  fie revc *  treachEr? \j>  be thoroughly ,k-feaiod  powers for evil ;.  of the world for*.-  To permit any *.v  of the present v,;;  suffer a dangi<r,n:  plotter against th  and the people o:  roam  at will am  evil purpose und;  season   for allov.  to run at large ha  riot alarm has  and the international policefor������  must be called out to apprehecd  adangerous criminal, to preserve  the   security   of   i\]i;  t-K^  world."  and its jL  lh,-^mainde,E  '"v d^m, ^  A'r **U!euieiit'&������  " w������'������id be to  malefactor, j  ���������1't''������������������'!* naticrj  l'w world, to  tlJ 'v������rk &  = iurbed.

And the result was that  the road  went  to   the  Frazer  Valley, parralleling the C. P. R.  from  Kamloops   to   the coast,  with Vancouver as the terminus.  A concession to the bulk of the  voters of the province like this  would in the minds of the politicians bring them to their support   And it did;  but not for  long.    The first election  after  this move returned all Conservatives members" with the exception of two socialists.   But a reaction set in and the politicians  who    thought    themselves    so  shrewd are now utterly discredited aodtin a very small minority  in the present legislature.  ; After the' Canadian Northern  bad abandoned the Bella Coola  route, a syndicate tried to get  government aid for a road from  Bella Coola through the Peace  River Valley.    This was the Pacific &   Hudson   Bay   Railway.  But, according to the promoter,  the McBride government did not  give this proposition proper encouragement, and then the war  came on and put a stop to the  plans for the time being at least.  But with the Brewster government the welfare of the province  is^awhola is ^of^ more concern  than   the   strengthening' of   a  political party.    And as a result  the possibility of a railroad to  Bella Coola with  its many advantages   in   comparison   with  other routes in contemplation is  receiving serious attention.  The despatch referred to reads  as follows:  time than the six weeks allotted  to tne length of the session. -  The defenders of the liberties  of the land receive the first attention.

It is often difficult to  the trouble in its early  jtges.  [n 223 of the 605, the disease  is discovered before the men  a charrce to go overseas.  That is, it developed under no  jater hardship than that of  gnp life���������no more severe than  experience of a hunting ex-  ion in the woods, which so  my people undertake as a holi-  |y recreation,  'hat does it mean, this dis  covery of 605 "consumptives"  even among the picked men who  should be above the average in  health and strength?  It means this. The seeds of  the disease have been sown in  thousands of apparently healthy  folk, and simply lie quiet till  some new circumstance gives  them a chance to spring up and  attack the body infected by them.  Then they give the man a fight  for his life.  c     - ��������� f ���������     ���������������������������- ".-������������������  If there is one thing certain,  it is that the disease can be  stamped out.  This can "only be done by combining prevention with cure.  Nearly all consumptives can be  cured, if the-diseasehasnot been  allowed to get very far. And  the example set by the thorough  treatment now given to tuberculous" soldiers should be followed  in dealing with all others attacked by the disease.  So much for the question of  the cure. Still more important  is the question of prevention.  The seeds cannot grow if they  are not sown. We must prevent  them from being sown.  Those who have the disease  can and must be taught how to  avoid giving it to others. And  all of us must learn to avoid those  evilconditionsof life which allow  the seeds first to enter our bodies  and then to germinate and attack  us.  Good ventilation, sunlight, and  good food thoroughly masticated  and digested- with these on our  side we can defy the enemy.  Now, more than ever before,  it is urgently necessary to increase the health and efficiency  of every Canadian, so that when  peace comes we can make good  the waste of life and health  caused by the war. Unhealthy  conditions of life and labor must  be rooted out as deadly enemies  of our country's prosperity.  Such conditions exist .both in  town and country, though much  worse in town.  Governments, municipal authorities, anti-tuberculosis leagues,  and all of us as private citizens,  should more energetically than  ever, perfect the efficiency of  the methods used.  A little hand-book entitled  "Fighting Tuberculosis," by  Lieut. J. R. Byers, C.A.M.C,  who has charge of the two sanatoria at Ste. Agathe, has- just  been published by the Military  Hospitals Commission for the  soldiers concerned. Similar pamphlets have been given out by  certain local organizations and  insurance companies.  The seeds of safety, in such  publications, should be spread as  widely and cultivated as actively  as the seeds of danger are now  being spread and cultivated by  our neglect.

Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  .;������   ':'  .*,  -il  View of a 'ranch in Bella Coola Valley.  t     j  TTHE REASONS  for this  enviable  condi-  x   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 produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.  'A'.r  n  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.

A line from Dun vegan to the
coast at a point about Bella Coola
by way of Pine pass gives the
shortest route of 490 miles.
Against this the distance via the
proposed.lihes and the P. G. E.
connection is 968. miles". Also
another alternate route via Pine
