Two  men were seriously injured, one  of them probably will die.  The funeral pageant was nearly an hour in passing. At the  head of- the line were a thousand  bluejackets and marines from  the Philadelphia navy yard.  The Norwegian Centenary was  appropriately celebrated at Hagensborg on Saturday last. - At  an early hour people commenced  to arrive from the different parts  of the valley and by 10:30 a. m.  a large concourse had assembled  to hear the opening remarks by  Mr. G. B. Olsen, who ably officiated as chairman for the day.  The main address was delivered  by Rev. Hans (Sageng, pastor of  the Augsborg Church, Hagensborg, who dealt with the historical significance of the occasion  in a most interesting and able  rna'nner. Mr. P. Lauritson,  choosing " temperance as h is  theme, delivered a stirring speech'  which was received by the large  audience with undivided attention. t;  The speeches were interspersed  with pleasingly rendered selections by Mr. T. P. Saugstad's  orchestra, and it was an enthusiastic and happy throng that adjourned to enjoy a pic-nic lunch  shortly after noon.  The afternoon was entirely  given over to sports of various  kinds, all the events being well  contested in ja, most isportsmari-  like spirit. The notable winners  were: Shooting competition at  100 yards, M. Schulstad; 1 mile  flat." race, T. Levelton, first,- O.  Fosback, second; high jump, T.  Levelton, first, O. Gordon, second. Basketball, T. Levelton's  team. Lack of space alone precludes mention of the numerous  other events.  In the evening the proceedings  were brought to a conclusion  with a grand concert in the Colony Hall. The program was both  lengthy and varied, the following  well known ladies and gentlemen  taking part: Mesdames D. C.  Balfour, B. F. Jacobsen and T.  P. Saugstad; Misses E. Thorson  and W. Pecknold; Messrs. T. P.  Saugstad, C. Way, A. Crichton  and D. C. Balfour. Several orchestral and choral selections  were rendered with excellent  effect and it was only at .a; late  hour that Mr. A. C. Christenson,  as chairman, brought the entertainment to a close with a few  well chosen remarks, which were  followed by the singing of "God  Save the King."  S.S.

They are here for  the purpose of hunting the grizzly bear and with Jesse and Fred  Hendricks as guides, are bound  for the head of\ the Newic River  which empties into the South  Bentick Arm.  The country at the head of  South Bentick Arm is noted as  being inhabited by bear of a particularly large kind, and as Fred  and Jesse know the lay of the  land like a book, there is little-  doubt that the party will enjoy  some excellent sport.  From a scenic standpoint the  South Bentick has no peer Jt\ this  northern coast and only needs to  be better known to be more frequently visited by tourists and  sportsmen.  Empire Day Celebration.  Prospects look exceedingly  bright for a most enjoyable time  Friday and Saturday. Word has  been received that the excellent  band from Bella Bella will attend  our celebration, and this alone  will make the occasion a red letter day in Bella Coolla Valley.  Great interest is being taken  in the numerous events, particularly the horse race, shooting  competition and sailing boat race,  entries for which promise to  greatly exceed previous years.  It has been arranged to hold a  gasoline boat race, and as it is  known that Bella Bella is sending a particularly speedy craft,  it will be a grand opportunity to  thoroughly test tne speed of our  local power boats. It is proposed to start this race a few  minutes before the sailing boat  race, and over the same course.  The sports grounds are in excellent condition, and will present a very pleasing appearance  on the great day.  The prizes for the numerous  events are on exhibition in Mr.  A. C. Christensen's store window and present a very handsome  showing. In this connection we  would like to make special mention of a particularly handsome  prize donated by purser Patterson of the S. S. Camosun, which  takes the form of a handsome  entree dish and is to be awarded  as first prize for the horse race,  in addition to two-thirds of the  entrance fees.  Mr. P. J. Kenyon has kindly  consented to act as official starter  for all foot races, and his long  experience on the English track  is sufficient to ensure complete  satisfaction.  Messrs. Chas. Mills and H. L.  Harris are the judges.  In the absence of Mr. W. H.  Gibson, president of the Development League, vice-president W.  Sutherland will act as chairman  of the celebration.  A recent communication from  Prince Rupert states that the  annual Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition at that place is  arranged to take place on September 30th, October 1st and 2nd.  With this timely warning it behoves the farmers of the valley  to see that Bella Coola is fairly  represented this year, and avoid  a repetition of what took place  on the last occasion, when only  three or four farmers made any  serious effort towards sending in  their best produce.  It will be remembered how, in  spite of the fact that very little  produce was sent from this  place, Bella Coola carried away  many first.prizes, no fewer than  fourteen falling to the lot of one  gentleman, Mr. S. Le C. Grant,  but for whose efforts the showing  of Bella Coola would have been  in significant indeed.  The "Courier" knows full well  what this valley is capable of  JI producing, and we deem it the  duty of our local farmers to take  advantage of the splendid opportunity this exhibition affords  to advertise the resources of this  place in the most effective manner possible.  A remarkable tribute to  the  revivifying qualities of the Bella  Coola atmosphere may be observed on almost any evening in the  football games upon the school  grounds.    The surprising agility  and contortions of some of the  "Old Brigade" in these games  is nothing short of marvellous.  Of course being somewhat out of  practice  the  object of   attack,  that is the ball, is not always obtained, but thei'e is pretty sure  to be some other fellow's leg to  stop the kick, so that it is not altogether wasted.     One of the  great attractions of the game is  the absence of a referee.   Everyone   plays ��������� "according to   his  lights" and therefore everyone  is satisfied.    There are a great  number of "stiffs" around these  days.  WANTED-  Approximately, 25,000 Cedar  Telephone Poles, from 30 to  60 feet long.

Camosun this week  brought up twenty-three passengers for Shushartie Bay. They  included Miss Sybil Bragg, returning home to Nahwitti River  after a long stay in Vancouver,  Mrs. R. O. Bramley and her  daughter, Margaret, also bound  for Nahwitti River, Mr. and Mrs.  R. Idsardi and a party of surveyors. '  Mr. Idsardi, this summer, will  re-survey the pre-emptions in  Townships 33 and 34.  The construction of the cold  storage plant at Shushartie Bay,  in charge of Mr. W. Lord, is now  in full swing. It is anticipated  that the plant will be completed early in July when the  cannery will be started upon.  Dr. McBirnie paid a flying visit  to Cache Creek, calling en route  to interview friends at Nahwitti  River.  We are pleased to report an  improvement in the condition of  Mr. Saren Christiansen, one of  the oldest residents in Cache  Creek, who is suffering from a  severe attack of asthma. Mr.  Christiansen's age is seventy-cne  and much anxiety is felt by his  many friends in the locality.  Mr. Kelso, of Fisherman's  Cove, is on a short visit to Al-  berni.  Mr. M. M. Stevens has been  appointed government engineer  for the north end of Vancouver  Island.  Mr. T. Fred Clulow, formerly  in charge of the road construction between Shushartie and  Cache Creek, has left to take up  new duties at Hardy Bay.

The Courier- takes this opportunity" of offering a cordial wel-  , come,to'the.many visitors who  are -here, to. join with us in celebrating. Empire Day, and trusts  that the occasion may result in  their carrying away a better  knowledge and a higher appreciation of-ah that our beautiful  valley has to offer.  Empire Day has always been  appropriately observed by the  people of Bella Coola as/Ae day  of all'the year, when, regardless  of Vhat  or  where our native  ���������land may be, or what our native  tongue," we are privileged to;  gather as fellow citizens of the  greatest empire that the world  . has ever known.  Originally instituted in commemoration of the birthday of  Queen Victoria, whose long rule  and beautiful character has left  a'lasting impress on the hearts  of .British people, this festival  has since. taken on a wider significance. Today we meet as integral units in the great living  structure and organism of the  British Empire,' to do. honor to  our present and ever-increasing  might, majesty and dominion.  Let us bear in mind while we  " celebrate this day that the privilege of British citizenship brings  with it responsibilities which  should not be overlooked. Our  responsibility lies in maintaining  unimpaired the magnificent  heritage that is ours today.  The New Governor-General.  Prince Alexander of Teck and  his consort, Princess Alice of Albany, will receive a hearty welcome to Canada, not only on account of their close relationship  to the reigning house, but perhaps mere on account of the many  amiable qualities which have  gained for them wide-spread and  deserved popularity among the  people of Great Britain.  Their associations with "philanthropic movements of various  kinds and-their unaffected interest in the condition and welfare  of the plain people have won for  th^hUhe^ highest regard of all  classes.-  ��������� Prince Alexander, like the  Duke of Connaught, whom he is  to.succeed, has had a soldier's-  training and experience, and like  him too, he won advancement  on his merits alone and not be-  A Chinese lad dropped his ball  in a narrow hole and could npt  get it out. So he .poured water  in the hole, thinking that he  would float the ball to the surface.  As the ball was slightly-heavier  than water, it remained on the  bottom. Then he thought of  mixing salt with the water, as  he knew that salt water would  float denser.objects than fresh.'  This he did, arid was rewarded  with the floating ball.  This particular -fact is demonstrated at the mouths of rivers.  .Objects rolling along the bottom  pf 'a fresh river, too heavy to  come to the top, will rise when  they are carried out to sea. The  general rule also applies to floating bodies. For instance, a ship  with a cargo on the sea will sink  sometimes a foot on entering a  fresh water port. On the other  hand, if she leaves a'fresh water  port with her cargo, she will rise  when entering the ocean. So a  ship may be loaded apparently  too much at a wharf and still be  all right on the waves.  In building a dam the fact of  salt' water being heavier than  fresh must.be-taken into,consideration", and'the dam for the  same head must be a good deal  stronger; this, too, without taking intd consideration the beating  of waves, etc.���������.Vancouver World  Independence In Public Life.  ���������The member of Parliament  who fearlessly and publiclytells  his party leaders what they  should do in dealing with great  questions displays an independence that is commendable. The  greatest weakness of public life  today is that so few men exhibit  independence; that party leaders,  who are in reality only public  servants, think they are the real  masters, and that it is a sacred  duty of those who are'called supporters to follow no matter where  the lead points. Unfortunately;  also, many men of the supporter  class put themselves under obligations to their leaders and so  lose the independence that they  should be most particular about  maintaining.���������St. John Globe.

Nor does the resemblence  j end there, for .while some spots  are small and of practically no  thin, when I say   foive--.it is a .  4������n that you are going to get hit j wlU a?Pef ot  of the nose.

In an interview in the New  York Evening Post, Rudyard  Kipling is quoted as saying: "I  did see war in South Africa. I  said to myself before I went out,  'I'll see the dash and get the  rattling inspiration of it. I'll  see the charges, and thin r-ed  lines, and hear hoarse commands,  and stand silent and thrilled in  that dread hush before the  battle.'  "But what a disillusion! The  hush before the battle was like  the quietness of surgeons and  nurses before they go into the  | operating room. Nobody galloped up on a lathered horse and  fell unconscious after handing  the general the long-waited dispatch. The general himself bestrode no charger, but sat in a  comfortable camp chair beside a  neatly spread tea-table. You  heard a few tick-ticks and somebody handed him a slip���������the substitute for the dispatch���������and he  read it and drank his tea and  said, 'Um-m-m, good. Working  out just as I thought. Wire  Binks to bring up that battery,'  etc., etc.  "And all this method and precision and application of modern  efficiency ideas makes the carnage all the more ghastly.    You  i don't know in advance just what  is going  to  happen,  you  don't  know how it happened; you just  look at the dreadful dead men  and the shrieking wounded men,  and they seem to you like inno-  ), cent bystanders who have got in  ' the   way   of   some   great civil-  \ eugineeringschemeand had been  j Lorn and blown up."

This, however, proved  to be.but a flash in the pan, and  settling down to their work the  home team soon made amends  and finally gained a well deserved  win by the score of 26 against 14.  During the game the spectators were treated to a number of  admirably rendered selections by  the Bella Bella band of which  further mention will be made.  An Enjoyable Dance.  To wind up a very pleasant day  many residents and visitors accepted the invitation of Mr. F.  G. Hagan of the Grand View  Hotel to a dance, which was  greatly enjoyed by air present.  The excellent music provided by  Mrs. T. P. Saugstad (piano),  Messrs. T. P. Saugstad and P.  Gadsden (violins), and A. Crich-  tori (cello), added greatly to the  success of the evening, their untiring efforts to please being  greatly appreciated.  Saturday's Sports.  The main part of the program  was  reserved  for Saturday   in  order to permit the many visitors  from the  neighboring ports to  participate.    The first event was  the  marathon race which took  placeat9:30a. m., by which time  the beautifully decorated sports  grounds on the Indian reserve  were   thronged   with   pleasure  seekers.    Sharp to time the various competitors were started by  Mr. P. J. Kenyon, who acted as  official started for all the events.  The race was an excellent one in  every way, and to the last, when  James Hoage of   the  Crossing  breasted the tape with a handsome lead, interest was never  lacking.    Ed. Grant gained second place after an exciting race  with W.  Davis.    Jim Kelly the  young Indian who won so .easily  last year failed to show the same  form and was placed among the  tail-enders, mijch to the disappointment of his many admirers.  Horse Races.  fall the plucky rider soon recovered and is suffering no ill  effects from his mishap.  The final between B. F. Jacob-  sen's, Babe, Fred Grant's, Beauty, and V. Clayton's, Fanny,  proved a magnificent race and  was deservingly won by the latter. Mr. Clayton was the recipient of many congratulations  on his success in capturing the  handsome trophy specially donated by Mr. N. G. Patterson of  the S.S. Camosun.  Lunch time having now arrived  everyone repaired to the sports  ground where well appointed refreshment stands were well  patronized. Following lunch,  time was allowed for the people  to indulge in cocoa-nut shying,  and other similar lines of amusement, after which the sports  were resumed at about 2 o'clock.

Baseball Game.  M5By 3:30 the scene of the boat  raifie  was  deserted,   the  people  having all made their way over  to   Mrs.   Clayton's  field to  see  baseball match between the Bel-  '/ ���������        la Coola team and a team from  '(\        Kimsquit and Bella Bella.    The  game started sensationally, the  "    visitors piling on a score of six  iri  the course of  the  first  few  minutes, and local fans began to  look   extremely   down   in   the  More than ordinary >interest  was evoked by the horse races  owing to the fact that several  strange horses were entered and  all had received careful training.  The first heat provided an excellent race, Mr. B. F. Jacobsen's  Babe (last year's winner), ridden by T. Leveton, being first  past the winning post.    The second heat was an easy thing for  Vincent Clayton with his beautiful bay mare, Fanny.    The third  heat provided considerable  excitement, when a fine chestnut  mare, Nell, ridden by W. Robinson left the track and for a while  looked   like   dashing   into   the  crowd.    The rider, however, succeeded  in   bringing his   mount  past the finishing post only to be  disqualified.    The heat was given to Fred Grant's Beauty, but  wishing to give his competitor  another chance Mr. Grant generously offered to run the heat over  again.    This time, however, W.  Robinson's mount again left the  track and commenced bucking,  finally  succeeding "in  throwing  her jockey heavily to the ground.

Great amusement was caused  by the bolster bar competition  which drew a large number of  entries.    In this event, two contestants sit facing   each other  astride of   a well-polished Toar  some five feet above the ground.  Each is armed with a pillow and  on the given word each endeavors to knock the other off the  bar into a pile of loose hay spread  underneath  to   break  the fall.  One bout between a certain well  known  Indian   and   an   equally  well known white man, both of  whom boast of considerable waist  measurement,    caused    intense  amusement.    The onslaught was  terrific   and   evoked  great applause, until the Indian, whose  rotundity of form was slightly  the greater,  received  a  whack i  which placed him hors-de-combat  in  the  straw-pile.       The final  round between T. Levelton and  J. Hoage resulted in a well earned  win for the former.  The tug of war proved another  interesting event. The Bella  Coola Indian team has always  proved too much for the whites  and this occasion was no exception. The first pull was won by  the Indian team without much  difficulty and for a while it looked as if they would pull the white  men off the ground. At the second attempt, however, the white  men raised the hopes of their  supporters by pulling their husky  opponents with apparent ease.  The final was the best pull ever  seen in Bella Coola. Both teams  took the strain fairly and on the  word fgo, neither gave way an  inch and so they remained for  upwards of ten minutes when the  superior training of the Indians  gained for them a well deserved  and popular victory. The winners were a stalwart set of men  and it would take an exceedingly  strong team to beat them.  The greasy pig hunt which was  expected to provide a lot of fun  proved a rather tame affair, the  capture being easily and speedily  effected by Orville Robinson.  This occasioned some disappointment and on future occasions it  would be well if a more speedy  animal, not quite so thoroughly  domesticated, was acquired for  the purpose.  The Bella Bella Band.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  The success of the occasion was  in no small measure due to the  presence of the famous Bella  Bella band, which under the able  leadership of Mr. Bert Humchit  rendei-ed selections of high class  music on both Friday and Saturday afternoon. The bandsmen  in their tasteful uniforms presented an extremely smart appearance, and in their numerous  renderings showed themselves  to be musicians of a very high  order. Bandmaster Humchit  showed marked ability in his  conducting and is to be complimented on the efficiency of his  band. The band consists of  twenty-two pieces, and with each  in the hands of a well trained  musician the effect is most gratifying and merits the highest  commendation. Such efficiency  is only attained by great effort  and perseverance along with a  natural aptitude, and no small  mead of praise is due to each  member for the keen interest  which he must necessarily have  exercised in contributing his  quota to the perfection of the  whole band. The thanks of the  people of Bella Coola are due to  the Bella Bella bandsmen, and  while trusting that they enjoyed  their visit, it may not be untime-  to express the earnest wish that  they will again honor us with a  visit next year.  Distribution of Prizes.  When the program of sports  had been brought to a close, Mr.  Wm. Sutherland, vice-president  of the Development League, took  the stand and in a few well  chosen words thanked the people  for their attendance and requested Mrs. Chas. Draney to present the prizes, which duty she  performed  in her  usual   kindly  manner.  In moving a vote of thanks to  Mrs. Draney, Mr. H. L. Harris  took occasion to remark that this  was the sixteenth year that Bella  Coola hnd been honored by the  presence of Mrs. Draney at the  annual celebration of Empire  Day, and he trusted that she  would continue to favor us similarly in the future.  Three rousing cheers and a  i tiger for Mrs. Draney, and a  similar compliment to the band  concluded the day's entertainment, everybody joining heartily  in the national   anthem led by  Among the numerous visitors  to Bella Coola for Empire Day  festivities were, Mr. and Mrs. C.  W. Homer, Messrs. A. H. Tomlinson, provincial horticulturist,  and D. Allen, of Prince Rupert.  Inspector of Indian agencies, A.  M. Tyson, and Mr. C. Mills, from  Vancouver. Mr. and Mrs. Chas.  Draney and family, from Kimsquit. Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Pauline,  Messrs. Grouth, Q. Eagan, and a  large party from Bella Bella.  Messrs. Moore and A. Hallet,  from Namu. A. K. Preston of  Vancouver, representative of  Braid & Co.  Mr. C. Mills, kindly acted as  one of the judges for the sports,  his able services in this regard  being greatly appreciated by the  committee in charge of the arrangements for the day.  Mr. A. K. Preston who was  returning to Vancouver after his  first visit to the north, during  which he travelled over the line  of the Grand Trunk Railway as  far as Tete Jaune Cache, reports  trade very brisk in the many new  towns and settlements.  He expressed himself as highly  pleased with what he saw of Bella Coola and hopes to become  better acquainted with the place  on some future occasion.  The provincial government experimental plot at Aytoun ranch  is looking first rate and quite up  to the expectations of Mr. A. H.  Tomlinson the provincial horticulturist, on the occasion of his  recent inspection.  Our local farmers would do  well to make frequent visits to  this plot, as much useful information may be gained by so  doing.   Foreman R. O. N. Eilison and  his bridge crew 'have moved up  to the Saloomt Valley were they  are engaged on the construction  of a new seventy-five foot span  in the bridge crossing the Saloomt River.  The work of clearing the street  to the jail is nearing completion  and has considerably altered the  appearance of the town in that  quarter.    __���������  The S. S. Camosun made her  usual weekly call at this port on j  Sunday last bringing several  passengers, among whom was  Rev. W. H. Gibson, returning  from the Methodist conference.  Sam Grant is busily engaged  in giving the jail a much needed  coat of paint.  Mr. and Mrs. Frank Robinson  are to be congratulated on the  birth of a baby daughter, which  auspicious event occurred on  Tuesday last.  Geo. Turner of Kleena Kleen  arrived in town on Monday last,  leaving his pack-train of twenty-  two head of horses at Hagensborg. He reports that the settlers are keenly interested in the  matter of a wagon road from  Bella Coola to the Interior, and  would be pleased to co-operate  with the people of this valley in  an effort to obtain same.  S. S. Celtic called here on Monday with gasoline and explosives.  The Fisheries Protection cruis-  Malaspina paid a brief visit to  this port on Wednesday.  0. W. Robinson and H. Davidson came up from Ocean Falls on  Wednesday. They report things  very quiet at the Falls. Preparations are being made to send  a large boom of logs to the Swan-  son Bay saw mill, presumably to  be cut for use at that place.  the band.  As is usual in Bella Coola at  this time of the year the weather  was perfect, and with the beautifully situated grounds gaily  decked with flags and bunting,  the scene was exceedingly pleasing to the eye, and the general j  opinion is that this was the best'  celebration ever held in this part.  The Evening.  Saturday evening, like the evening previous, was given over to'  dancing, and all those who were  so inclined were again made welcome at the Grand View Hotel, j  the gathering only dispersing on  the near approach of Sunday  morning. The excellent orchestra was on this occasion augmented by the inclusion of Mr. Arthur  Hal let of Namu, whose clever  playing on the guitar was greatly appreciated. A daintily served  supper was greatly enjoyed and  everyone expressed themselves  as extremely pleased with the  evening's enjoyment.  Dr. R. C. Best and the hospital  staff from Bella Bella left for  the summer hospital at Rivers  Inlet on Tuesday. ThetugShim-  oiget, one of the best on the coast,  at present engaged in connection  with the Brunswick cannery  made the transfer. Both the  aforementioned hospitals are  well equipped, but the transfer  of the personal effects of the staff  together with instruments and  apparatus made the occasion a  busy one for those concerned.  J. Jackson and J. Nelson left  town early in the week for the  Upper Valley where they have  joined Max Heckman's road gang  NOTICE.

SATURDAY, MAY 30, 1914.  i Oar Duty.  .If is instinctive with the Britisher to appropriately celebrate  occasions Jof great historical significance, <an'd in this regard the  people of Bella Coola are in no way  behind:.. This is only one way  in which we are pleased.to manifest our loyalty to the British  Crown.  Newcomers amongst us are  generally-struck with the great  interest taken in politics by the  people of this Valley, and often  ask why we are always (as they  term it) kicking. It is true that  in no part of the province, or  even the Dominion, could be  found -a place "with the same  population where a greater  interest is taken,in matters pertaining to the public welfare.  ��������� Free speech, a free press, and  the privilege of unfettered  .thought are the rights of British  citizenship, and he is failing in  his duty as a good citizen who  does not take advantage of these  privileges, and accept his share  of the responsibility of safeguarding the interests of the country,  so that our magnificent heritage  may be handed on to our children  unimpaired.  Political feeling runs high in  Bella Coola, and often we cannot see eye to eye with one another, but we each must respect  the other* for his opinion, and  even if wecannot agree with our  neighbor we should recognize  that he is fulfilling his duty as a  citizen by becoming sufficiently  informed on public matters to  have an opinion of his own.  The map who has no opinion  on matters political, is a drone  in the hive. He belongs to a  dangerous element, which only  too often is responsible for  serious blunders in electing the  wrong man to represent us, who  in consequence of wilful perversity or crass ignorance sacrifices  the best interests of the country  for petty party advantages, or  even for personal gain.  Unmitigated Gall.  The Omineca Herald publishes  an account of the visit of Deputy-  Minister of Public Works, J. E.  Griffith, and Wm. Manson, M. P.  P., to New Hazelton, in which it  is clearly shown that their  visit resulted in nothing more  than utter dissatisfaction, disappointment and even disgust to  everyone in that locality.  The visit of. these gentlemen  to that place was primarily for  the purpose of examining the  new high-level bridge, constructed by a private company, and  which the government has been  asked to take over and construct  a road connecting it with the  original government road.  Our contemporary states that  "they arrived at this bridge  about dark and spent a few minutes looking at its magnificence.  Then they drove to New Hazelton, arriving there after nine-  thirty, and held a meeting with  the executive committee of the  Conservative Association."  Mr.  Griffith, while admitting  that the bridge was substantial,  well built, and capable of carrying the weight for which it was  intended,-stated that it was not  up to the government standard.  ,The best he could do was to  offer two thousand dollars for  roads to and from this bridge,  provided- the   bridge   company  dbuld be induced to hand it over  to the government free of charge.  Even then the Deputy-Minister  of Public Works would give no  assurance that this paltry $2,000  would be spent on the road in  time to make it- passable' for  wagons, or even that the money  would "be spent at all.    Yet he  had the gall to'ask that the Department be presented with a  $43,000 bridge, the finest in the  province.  We know enough of the people  of New Hazelton to imagine  their indignation at treatment of  this kind, which is nothing less  than an insult to their intelligence, and we shall be greatly  surprised if they do not wreak  their vengeance on those responsible at the first opportunity.  "Not up to our standard" says  Mr. Griffith. It would be interesting to know what is the government's standard for bridges.  We wonder if the bridge over the  Nootsatsum River, built according to government specification,  the piers layed on skids in the  moving bed of the river, and  which lasted a few months when  it was swept away, was up to  government standard.  The standard of public works  in this province is very low indeed, as is instanced in our roads,  rYEAST  MAKESlPiERlXgT jBREAD  but at the same time it is costly,  and v no one knows this better  than we in Bella Coola Valley.  New Hazelton district this year  receives the magnificent sum of  $9,500 for roads. Last year the  government received from that  district half a million dollars  revenue.  -Now, you people of New Hazelton, do you understand what Sir  Richard McBride meant when he  said that public works would be  curtailed "Particularly in the  North."  ooooo  Here is another "monument"  which will stand to the memory  of the Premiership of Sir Richard  McBride, the creator of British  Columbia's "prosperity".  Cents were first used in Vancouver and Victoria in the year  1914.  W7e wonder if the introduction  of copper is an effort on the part  of Sir Richard to reduce the  present high cost of living.  Who would not be a railroad  promoter in these days? Is it  not dead easy for the people to  find the money and for you to  own the line?  There is no business equal to  it. There will be a rush of  railway promoters to Ottawa if  this is to continue.  ooooo  More Borden Prosperity.  In the month of April, 1913,  the total revenue of the Dominion amounted to $12,145,455.    In  other words,   there  was a decrease of $2,296,457 or more than  eighteen per cent.   The greater  part of the decrease came in the  falling off in custom's revenue,  an indication of a continued drop  in Canadian trade.    For months  past there has been a great and  steady decline of Canadian trade  and the April   figures  indicate  that this accompaniment of Borden rule continues markedly evident.  ooooo  Only $6,000,000 Out!  The looseness and inaccuracy  of the information in regard to  Canadian Northern affairs which  is  being given  by the Borden  government may be gauged from  the fact that in one case alone  the ministry omitted a $6,000,000  item. Between such close friends  as the government and Mackenzie & Mann $6,000,000 may be a  mere bagatelle but the average  citizen  of   Canada is likely to  have a somewhat different idea.  The omission of the $6,000,000  item���������$5,995,734, to be exact���������  was made in the government return    showing   the   estimated  amount required to complete the  construction   of   the   Canadian  Northern. The sum lef tout is the  amount required to complete the  Montreal tunnels and terminals.  As soon as Liberal newspapers  gave publicity to the fact that  the item had been omitted the  government apologists hastened  to explain that the "mistake"  was due-to an "error in transmission."     It is quite possible  that this was the case, but the  -incident is illuminating as indicating the inaccuracy and unreliability of the "information" in  regard to the affairs of Mackenzie & Mann which Mr. Borden  and his colleagues are giving the  people,who, under Borden legislation, are to endorse notes for  the two railway magnates to the  huge amount of $45,000,0001  Popular and  Useful Gifts  ABirks' Watch, Chain or Fob  U/ATftlPQ for Men and Boys, in a great variety flf  VYAltnLJ styles, but all warranted to be reliable  timekeepers.

TROREY  Managing Director   ,  "\  ���������r    t  enci  Provincial Elections Act.  To the Editor: The amending  act of 1914 takes away the right  of a naturalized British subject  to transfer his vote from one  electoral district to another electoral district. I think it would  be well to draw attention to this  fact.  Under the original act a person |  desiring to transfer his vote from  his former to his present place  of residence obtained from the  registrar of-voters in the district  wherein he was registered a certificate to the   effect   that his  name had been  removed from  the list.    He then forwarded this  certificate with his affidavit, form  A, to the registrar of voters for  the district in which he was then  resident, and after ten days the  registrar placed his name on the  list.    By the last amending act,  form A is changed so as to refer  only to British subjects by birth,  and   as   a   naturalized   subject  could not take such an affidavit  he cannot get his vote transferred.

Lord Bryce, free from the six  months' self-denying ordinance  he imposed on himself after his  return from America, delivered  a very impressive speech on free  trade at the annual dinner of the  Cobden club. The gathering was  naturally a cheerful one. The  past year has witnessed what  seems to be,the final collapse of  the tariff 'reform' bubble in this  country. The ten years which  have passed since Mr. Chamberlain began his "ragging, tearing  propaganda'' have been the most  successful years in the history of  British, trade, and the Protectionists are reduced at the end of  them  to a bitter and  hopeless  For Purity and Sweetness  PASCALL'S  Chocolates and Confections are Nutritious  and Delicious  SOLD BY ALL  FIRSTCLASS GROCERS AND  CONFECTIONERS  feud among themselves.    But it  was the  larger aspects of the  question with which Lord Bryce  chiefly dealt, and especially the  sensational   movement towards  free trade which has been made  in the United States within the  past year.    His analysis of the  reasons   which  led  the  United  States to adopt a high tariff and  of the  economic  causes  which  have now broken that tariff down  was extraordinarily illuminating.  But Lord Bryce is far too profound a student of the subject  and too passionate a lover of the  cause of  humanity to base his  case upon economics alone.    In  a noble and eloquent tribute to  the memory of Richard Cobden,  he declared that it was because  free trade, was the most powerful   instrument   for   promoting  friendly intercourse among the  nations and the peace   of   the  world that it had commanded the  devotion of Cobden and must always command the devotion of  those who believed that the general  benefit of  humanity must  react  to  the advantage of  the  parts.     It  is  that great truth  which enables us to welcome the  adoption   of   more   enlightened  ideas in the United States.    Free  trade, like mercy, is twice blessed; it blesses him that gives and  him that takes.���������London News  and Leader.
