Aside from the ordinary  making ready for the canning  season a number of police officers  are now camped there in search  for the murderer of the two Indian women.  ���������   '  Frank Inrig, manager of the  B. C. Packers Association's interest at Rivers Inlet,1 spent a  day here last week in consultation with Manager Saint on fishery matters. Mr. Inrig informs  us that at all the fish packing  plants things are. in order to commence operations as soon as the  salmon puts in an appearance.  The new cannery of Robert  Johnston, situated at Schooner  Passage, is well under way and  will be ready for operations this  season.       .Harry Hanson, the noted Prince  Rupert plumber, is still busy at  his trade. His last act was to do  some remodelling of pipes .at the  Indian agency. The General  Hospital is having some alter'a-  will take advantage of the presence in the valley of a first class  plumber to' have that class of  work done.  The S.S.

The lumber will  be supplied by the Namu sawmill. , A number of carpenters,  under the direction of A. Parker,  are now working on the mess-  house and quarteis for the employees.   _ ._  Let Us All Co.-  The Courier is in-receipt of a  circular announcing: that a sum-'  mer school will be conducted at  Victoria.from July 3rd to August  3rd. All teachers actively engaged in teaching in the provincial schools are eligible for admission without fees. The course  includes rural science, art, household science, vocal music and  manual training, and will be presented by a large staff of trained  specialists.   The power launch Chuckwalla  brought up the last of the salmon  tins from Wadhams for the local  cannery. The consignment last  week makes up the thirty thousand cases of tins, the initial amount to hold this season's pack.  It is expected that considerable  more tins will be required and  these will be provided for later.  After the post-mortem examination at Ocean Falls on the two  Indian women murdered at Kimsquit, the bodies were taken back  for burial in their native village.  Many of the Bella Coola tribe  went over to assist in the last  sad rites.

Dominion Government  and Conscription.  It is more than probable that  we shall have- conscription in  Canada very soon. From Ottawa  comes the news that the Conservative government contemplates  making every man, eligible as  to age, sign the roll for military  service. ' Those conscripted to  appear before a board of military  ' authorities for examination. Appeal from the board's decision  may be made to a body presided  over by a court judge.  After the many attempts of the  Borden  government  to   shuffle  out of definitely deciding for compulsory service it is hardly credible that they at-last intend to  make a stand.   Conscription has  been a bugbear to those in power at Ottawa', and yet it is only  ��������� by conscription that the Borden  government can hope to fulfil its  pledge of 500,000 men:     Why  ' then all this delay?    They have  been afraid to face the country  on their war measures.    And it  is safe to assume that if there is  any possibility of laying the onus  on the Liberal  party for their  omissions in, this war it will be  done; conscription may  be the  lone issue in an appeal to the  country by the Conservatives.  ooooo  Attorney General Resigns.  Hon. M. A. Macdonald the attorney general, has voluntary  resigned from the cabinet. This  being the result of the charge  made by J. S. Cowper, a Van  co'uver member. Mr. Macdonaid  received a contribution from a  Liberal friend, Dr. R.-McKensric,  towards the- campaign expenses  of last year, and Mr. Cowper  claimed that it was Canadian  Northern money, rather that the  people's mind should be relieved  of this idea the attorney general  relinquished his seat in the cabinet. This was a manly act on  the part of Mr. Macdonald and  shows his traducers that honesty  has not yet perished from this  province.  o     c    e     o    o  For those who ;ire so opposed  .tospending money in a campaign,  and there are many, wc*may  mention.that in the election of  1912 it cost the'taxpers'oX British  Columbia, according to the public accounts, $11,445.47 to elect  William1 Manson to parliament  for the Skeena riding. This  amount does not include the use  of packhorses and teams that  were hired to do road work and  which Mr. Manson used liberally  for election purposes. If everything had been included it would  easily have totalled fifteen thousand dollars, the amount claimed  that the Liberals were using1 in  Vancouver during last election.  ooooo  Synchronizingrwith the appointment of avommission to investigate the soldiers vote comes  the announcement that Sir Richard McBride has resigned owing  to ill health. The commission,  Messrs. D. Whiteside, C. P.-,Nelson, F. A. Pauline, is to proceed  to England at once and perhaps  Sir Richard does not care to confer with them.'  O      Cj      o      o      o  The Kimsquit Murder.  The Kimsquit tribe of Indians  have the reputation of having  outbursts of passion for fights  and this seems to have been the  case since   early history.     As  hunters they have always been  ahead of any of their kinsmen,  and when the rifle came into use  they soon became adepts in the  use of it.   This brings to mind  the remarkable shooting which  occurred  four years ago, (from  an open boat  and   some wind  blowing,) when five shots were  tired and four braves were laid  low.    The shooting to death of  two women while in the act of  planting their garden is another  instance of deadly aim, as far as  is known only three shots were  fired in the latest tragedy,' which  is not  considered an action on  the spur of   the moment,  but  rather a carefully prepared plot  by whoever committed this awful  crime.   This fact was clear to  the person in the street, and it  was up to the-authorities to be  very cautious lest evidence,' if  any, was destroyed.    No medical  examination was rheld   on   the  ground oi^.even the coroner for  the' district viewing the bodies.  The moving   of  the  bodies  to  Ocean Falls,  sixty  miles away  from the field of crime, is aseri-  ous blunder if not criminal negligence on the part of those who  are responsible for it.    At any  rate the murderer is still at large.  o     o     o     c     o '  Is the U-Boat Doomed?  The most interesting item of  war news this week is that the  nation than if converted into butter, according to the secretary  to the British Ministry of Food.  He states that if meat ran short,  cheese was the most valuable  substitute the British farmer  could possibly produce. In answer to an inquiry if it was de-  desirable to limit the use of  starch, the secretary said: "If  people choose to wear soft collars and soft shirtfronts they  would be ��������� taking a patriotic  course; but in all these matters  new devise which -is meeting they must have some sense of  with marked success) to s)me '.proportion.   We have not reach-  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co. Ltd.  VANCOUVER, B. C.  extent mastered the submarine  situation. If the new methods  adopted for dealing- with the U-  boat menace should prove effective, an earlier termination of  the war can be looked for.  o,   o     o    c     o  "Man is by far the most courageous animal God ever made,  and compared with him lions are  cowards." So the prime minister is"reported to have said, after visiting the ,front. British  soldiers inspired his,thought.  The Outlaw's Reasoning.  German ruthlessness at the  opening of the war was due to  wantonness of power and arrogance. German ruthlessness today is born of despair. The good  opinion of the civilized world has  been forfeited and Germany, to  use a homely saying, feels that  it may as well be hung for a  sheep as a lamb.���������Ex.  ooooo  Germany's submarinewar may  or may not break the war blockade that lias been erected against  her, but'whether it does or not,  it will erect against her a permanent blockade far wider in  extent, a blockade which will  leave _its- mark on Germany's  commerce til! long after the men  who are misleading- her into her  insane course are dead and gone.  For it will not be a blockade that"  can be stopped by a governmental order from the cabinets of the  allies; it will be a blockade erected in the minds of men the  world over whom she has tried to  make fear her and who will have  learned to hate her.���������New York  Times.  ooooo  Eventualities.  Surplus milk   converted  into  ed a stage when we could reasonably ask people, to forego the  use of stiff white collars.",  In this respect the people of  Northern British Columbia must  be more patriotic than elsewhere  for it is seldom that we see any-  one adorned with a stiff collar.  If the non use of starch clothes  is a saving to the nation and will  help, to win the war this section  is right in line.  o     o     o     o '  o  The Problem of, the Fishing  Industry.

As a result of investigations on the Pacific coast, it  has been estimated that the  sheer waste of the fisheries of  Alaska amounts' to 70,000 tons  per annum and of those of British Columbia at from 15.000 to  20,000 tons. From the foregoing  figures it will readily be appreciated that few industrial improvements could render more  substantial aid to the fishing interests, than the perfection of  pratieal methods of converting  the offal to economic use.

New Zealand, the smallest of  the overseas dominions, with a  population of a million, has, according-to W. A. Beddoe, Canadian trade commissioner at Auckland, sent 70,000 men overseas.

South African soldiers fighting  in France have been praised for  their fine-attack atthe battle of  Arras. These men have already  served against Germany either  in southeast or south west Africa.  Having suppressed a rebellion at  home instigated by German authorities in the neighboring colony and by (Herman conspirators  in the Transvaal, following this  up by the occupation of the German colonics in succession, South  Africa might have claimed that  the share of that Dominion was  performed.

A splendid feat of seamanship,  which we trust the "silent service" will not keep to itself altogether, was performed when  two destroyers collided recently.  In spite of the raging storm and  a pitch-dark night, the commander of a rescuing destroyer  brought his vessel alongside one  of the sinking ships fifteen times  and succeeded in taking off the  whole crew. And not a word  has been published of,what the  navy regards as one of the most  splendid and daring feats of  seamanship ever accomplished.

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.

All the ingenious devices of  German science to make war  more horrible have proved of no  avail. Poisonous gases, curtains  of fire; they have not caused  Germany's foes to quail. No  neutral country has been persuaded into acquiescence by, the  blowing up of munition plants or  the destruction of supply ships.  The Teutons have resorted to  almost every medieval implement for the awakening of fear  ���������and have made nobody afraid.  DEAL ESTATE booms in the  cities have come and gone.

There seems to  be an impression abroad that the  wives or mothers of our soldiers  should be worse off, rather than  better, when the husbands are  away. Such a view is taken, of  course, only after a superficial  examination of the case.' The  wife has given her husband to  the national cause, and she deserves well at our hands.   The  r  Fund does not support her- it  merely creates a margin of reasonable comfort. If a soldier's  wife here or there gives up her  daily toil, that is a very inadequate reason for condemning a  Fund which possesses a host of  social service workers who are,  teaching thousands of women to  be industrious, thrifty, good  housewives,, wise mothers, and  filling them with ambition to  have happier homes than they  ever knew before.

SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1917.  Dominion Government  and Conscription.  It is more than probable that  we shall, have conscription in  Canada very soon. From Ottawa  comes the news that the Conservative government contemplates  making every man, eligible as  to age, sign the roll for military  service. Those conscripted to  appear before a board of military  authorities for examination. Appeal from the board's decision  may be made to a body presided  over by a court judge.  After the many attempts of the  Borden government to shuffle  outof definitely decidingfor compulsory service it is hardly cred:  ible that they at~last intend to  make a stand. Conscription has  been a bugbear to those in power at Ottawa;"arid yet it is only  by conscription that the Borden  government can hope to fulfil its  pledge of 500,000 men. Why  then all this delay? They have  been afraid to face the country  on their war measures. And it  is safe to assume that if there is  any possibility of laying the onus  on the Liberal party for their  omissions in this war it will be  done; conscription may be the  lone issue in an appeal to the  country by the Conservatives.  o     o     o     o     c  Attorney General Resigns.

Mr. Macdonald  received a contribution from a  Liberal friend, Dr. R. McKenzie,  towards the- campaign expenses  ���������of last year, and Mr. Cowper  claimed that it was Canadian  Northern money, rather that the  people's mind should be relieved  of this idea the attorney general  relinquished his seat in the cabinet. This was a manly act on  the part of Mr. Macdonald and  shows his traducers that honesty  has not yet perished from this  province.  OOOOO.'.  For those who are so opposed  to spending money in a campaign,  and there are many, we^may  mention that in the election of  1912 it cost thet'axpers^of British  Columbia, according to the public accounts, $11,445.47 to elect  William Manson to parliament  for the Skeena riding. This  amount does not include the use  of packhorses and teams that  were hired to do road work and  The Kimsquit Murder.  The Kimsquit tribe of Indians  have the reputation of having  outbursts of passion for fights  and this seems to have been the  case since   early  history.     As  hunters they have always been  ahead of any of their kinsmen,  and when the rifle came into use!  they soon became adepts in the  use of it.   This brings to mind  the remarkable shooting which  occurred  four years ago, (from  an  open  boat  and   some wind  blowing,) when-five shots were  fired and four braves were laid  low.    The shooting to death of  two women while in the act af  planting their garden is another  instance of deadly aim, as far as  is known only three shots were.  c  fired in the latest tragedy, which  is not considered an action on  the spur, of the moment, but  rather a carefully prepared plot  by whoever committed this awful  crime. This fact was clear to  the person in the street, and it  was up to the-authorities to be  very cautious lest evidence, if  any, was destroye'd. No medical  examination was held on the  ground or even the coroner for  the district viewing the bodies.  The moving of the bodies to  Ocean Falls, sixty miles away  from the field of crime, is a serious blunder if not criminal negligence on the part of those who  situation. If the new methods  adopted for dealing with the U-  boat menace should prove effective, an earlier termination of  the war can be looked for.;  o     c     o     o     o ���������''.-''';.  "Man is by far the most,courageous animal God ever made,  and compared with him lions are  cowards." So the prime minister is reported to have said, after visiting the" front. British  soldiers inspired his thought.  The Outlaw's Reasoning.  German ruthlessness at the  opening of the war was due to  wantonness of power and arrogance. German-ruthlessness today is born of despair. The good  opinion of the civilized world has  been forfeited and Geripany, to  use a homely saying, feels that  it may as well be hung for a  sheep as a lamb.���������Ex.  o     c     o     o .   o  Germany's submarine war may  or may not break the war blockade that has been erected against  her, but whether it does or not,  it will erect against her a permanent blockade far wider in  extent,, a blockade which will  leave its mark on Germany's  commerce till long after the men  who are misleading- her into her  insane course are dead and gone.  For it will not be a blockade that"  can be stopped by a governmental order from the cabinets of the  allies; it will be a blockade erec-  i ted  in the  minds of men the  ably ask people to forego the  use of stiff;white collars."  In this respect the people of  Northern British Columbia must  be more patriotic than elsewhere  for it is seldom that we see any--  one adorned with a stiff collar.  If the non use of starch clothes  is a saving to the nation and will  help to win the war this section  is right in line.  O      CO      o      o  The Problem of the Fishing  Industry.

A man of twenty-five  is of greater value than his father  in the hell across the Channel.  It is to be hoped, therefore, that  the young men will be released  from work that in France is being done by older men and by  women and boys, and that the  army that marches into Germany  will be a young army. The chief  essential at this moment is Time  and not Talk. The men, and at  least a million of them, must be  obtained now; if they are to be  trained for the work. Everyone  who reads this knows at least one  young non-combatant whose  work could be done by.a boy, an  older man, or a woman. The  army needs him.��������� London Daily  Mail.  FOR SALE.

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.

There seems to  be an impression abroad tnatthe  wives or mothers of our soldiers  should be worse off, rather than  better, when the husbands are  away. Such a view is taken, of  course, only after a superficial  examination of the case".-, The  wife has given her husband to  the national cause, and sKe deserves well at our hands.' The  Fund does, not support her- it  merely creates a margin of reasonable comfort. If a soldier's  wife here or there gives up her  daily toil, that is a very inadequate reason for condemning a  Fund which possesses a host of  social service workers who are  teaching thousands of women to  be industrious, thrifty, good  housewives, wise mothers, and  filling them with ambition to  havehappier homes than they  ever knew before.
