Gibson,  4V six years has guided and  , the Indians of Bella Coola  live and how to be happy,  as how to believe.    Mr.  Gilson's ministry has been most  ��������� practical,   as  well  as  spiritual.  Wifti his own hands he built the  ty'rieat chapel in which four hun-  /fxdrefr'Saltehucks (saltwater Indi-  if|M&)  gather on   occasion :   four  ^ffedred is rather a tight fit, but  *** !* nrcan be, and   has  been  done,  ' *'the accommodatiod of this number within   these  walls.       Mr  charges the arts of carpentry, of  agriculture, of painting and of  papering their houses. Their  aimiability and contentment are  the strongest possible proofs of  the radical success of his missionary service.  During the noon lull he appears,  to be cordially welcomed by all.  He is assuredly persona grata to  white and red peoples alike.  Let us for a brief space leave  the bright scene of old friends  re-united, and new friendships  made or in the making, upon the  color-dotted lawn; let us descend,  with the incoming tourist the  gang-plank of the moored Camosun, and share with him his first  impressions of our port.  For Bella Coola, as viewed from  the  boat-landing,   is  rather an  awesome place.       The harbor,  guarded by stately citadel-sentinel hills, is nobly beautiful: but  of a colossal, titanic beauty which  awes, the while it fascinates and  charms.    There is no sign or suggestion of a town ;  no  hint of  hospitable   board,    of    glowing  hearth,   of   peaceful,   sheltered  home.   Nothing meets the eye but  rugged Nature: a Nature reminiscent of Norway  and Scotland,  yet still most strongly personal,  individual, utterly and  entirely  itself: a Nature virile,^ massive,  majestic, solemn, grand.    That  is the tourist's first thought of  Bella Coola.    Maybe, he catches  his breath a little as he senses to  the full the stately splendors of  cascaded, snow-capped crag and  towering pine.    Now he crosses  the    long    wharf-bridge,  made  necessary by the long fjord-like  in-reach of the harbor's estuary;  now he rounds the turn of the  road, and beholds smiling fertility and richness.   A gentler beauty meets him: milder, fairer: a  beauty clad in vesture of spring  green, violet-sprinkled, radiating  from its folds the sweet breath  of cottonwood and pine.    Now,  our  Celebration  visitant leaves  the beaten track, the wheel-road,  and plunges into the woed, on a  dim, narrow trail.    This is the for-  est primeval. Nowhere in the world,  1 think, are there such beautiful  colors as in the Canadian wood-  ways.    The rich  red-browns of  the   frequent,   shallow   brooks ;  the grey-greens of the vigorous  rushing larger streams; the vivid,  brilliant,   yet   soft   and   tender  verdure of the trees and bushes,  the copper glows of the mosses  with which the trees are thickly  furred    make up a picture as intense   in   color-value   as  many  tropical scenes, and one without  the sense of cloying and decay  which a South American or Brazilian woodlife  leaves  with  its  beholder.  As the Celebration takes place  upon the grounds of the Reserve,  it is there that our visitant directs his steps: crossing many  bridges made of a tree thrown  beautiful one; I think our tourist  will never forget themysticquiet turesqueness: loggers' boots and  through which he passes softly  treading thick moss or soft, moist  earth; the green gloom of the  silent woods; the sunlit, Sunday  sweetness of the open spaces  here and there, bright with  spring flowers, pink and white  and purple. Here he turns aside  to visit the Indian graveyard; an  interesting blend of Siwash and  Christian imagery and custom.  Here is a three-fold totem of  eagle, fish and raven; these images surmounting poles on which  are carved and painted faces  curiously Egyptian in expression  and contour. They recall a little-  known scientific theory as to the  nexus between the aboriginal  races of Asia and of America���������  and Canada. Hereisahandsome  tombstone of grey granite, name  and inscription gilded; a monument which would adorn any  Caucasian cemetry. There is an  alarm clock, the hands set at  twelve o'clock, midnight: "the  witching  hour   when   graves   give   up  theirdead." Hereis a phonograph '/wildest,   shy-est   animals   alive  - ... .. i ���������        ������ i   . "I -   _   ���������     ������ 2- _  and, a grave farther on, a gun,  fastened, stock uppermost, upon  a wooden upright.    Our tourist  recalls the ancient Indian custom  of slaying  the   dead  warrior's  favorite steed, and burying this  with him in his grave, with his  gun, and sometimes, his best beloved  wife,   and   hunting   dog.  Between Indian life and Indian  death,   as   with   all   elemental  peoples,  was ever  brief,  slight  division.    The ideas flow into one  another easily, in a natural mind.  So our tourist finds, a little further  on   in   the  wood,  a camp  of    several    smoke - blackened,  weather-scarred tents; an Indian  woman cooking over a little fire:  two  dark   men   scraping flesh-  scraps from  a fresh bear-hide,  throwing these to a dog.  ' 'How old ?" queries our tourist  of swaggering and reckless pic-  heavy   striped    stockings,   into  which are tucked dark, hip-wide  in a prior incarnation, roamed  and roved the snowy crags and  darksome, bear-haunted forests  of this region; that then, as now,  trousers, vest swinging wide on j he was jovial and fearless; that  either side of a broad brown  shirted vest; a florid, genial face,  flanked laterally by auburn-red  dundrearies; frank, bright blue  eyes, thick curly hair of the same  intense hue as moustache and  whiskers, and a square-topped  Stetson felt, which has seen  weather.  ',; "Stranger," remarks this apparition, vividly, "you want to  come b'ar-huntin' with me. I  won't charge you much to take  you out. Seein' as I don't b'lieve  you can afford it:���������well, say'bout  three hundred dollars a week.  That includes use of the dogs,  guns, and my services as guide.

Mr. Grant lays strong  stress on Bella Coola's imperative need of intense farming.  Clearing new land, he says, costs  from between $150. to $500 an  acre. The initial outlay it can  be seen is very large.     He ad-  of soberer historians.

Our tourist is now quite as  genially, but rather more conservatively accosted in welcome  by a gentleman whose dignity of  appearance,   and  whose  sweet-  mense uncleared tracts of land,  belonging to men who cannot  afford time or money to develop  their property's possibilities, into small fruit farms or poultry  ranches of from 5 to 10 acres.  The attention of all is now directed towards* the games and  sports'of the afternoon, which  take on a hilariously amusing  character. Among the funniest  of these are the sack race, in  which Mr. F. Grant acquits himself with amazing agility; the  egg-and-spoon race of the ladies;  the bolster-bar contest, in which  the opponents, facing each-other,  sit astride a slippery round-sided  bar, and buffet one another with  canvas bags sturrea wan' nay,  trying to unseat the vis-a-vis  with dexterous pommeling; the  tug-of-war, contested by Indians  and whites, in ��������� which the battle  was won by the Indians, among  whom were several exceedingly  "ani'e, fat, and hefty specimens;  appearance,   aim   wuucv  ^...^^^ ,      _. .  ness and kindliness of manner! the greased pole, the hamat the  endear him to the stranger's! top of which was won by a dark  heart at once.

The Siwashes of the Interior  are called "Stick Indians," because they live among the timber  and call all trees sticks.  Now our tourist enters the gate  of the Reserve and is on the celebration grounds. What a picture!  Life, stir, vivacity and color  everywhere. A smiling brown  face greets him with a flash of  white teeth and a hearty utterance of Clahowx>ah! the Chinook  word-of-ail-work for Goodmorn-  ing, Hello, and Goodnight; like  the Italian's Allrol and the Ha-  waiians Alohahl In every elemental, simple tongue is such a  word.

One of  the most spirited and laughter-  evoking contests of the bolster-  bar took place between Mr. William Sutherland, a member of  Bella Coola's "smart set," and a  large, stout, smiling brown person. Most of the white residents;  all of the pioneer settlers, talk  fluently the clicking, hissing-  tongue of the native sons and  daughters' thus making possible  real intercourse and understanding.  Now, sunset is at hand. And  the distribution of prizes!  But first, the crowd assembled  around the marquee- where are  displayed the glittering spoils of  victory, are to be addressed by  the Reverend- Mr. Gibson ; Mr.  Manson, M.P.P. for Skeena; and  Mr. T. C. Colwell, B. A.,,graduate of the University of Alberta,  and today introduced as its new  Methodist pastor.  Mr.  Gibson  speaks first.    In  sturdy Saxon he asseverates his  pride in being an integral unit in  the great living structure and  organism of the British Empire:  the greatest empire, he believes,  in  the  whole world ;  and this  greatness   and   power  and  dominion exist because their life is  founded and based upon, rooted  in,  Righteousness;  and in  giving  everyone, 'Englishman- or stranger, fair play and a chance. - Mr.  Gibson tells his audience that two  important features of civilization  are to institute themselves among  Bella   Coola's   residents':    the  Church, as represented by Mr.  Colwell, preacher to the white  people of the locality; and the  Law, soon to be incarnated in a  Skookum House, or Jail���������a necessary, though unpleasant element of progress.  Mr. Colwell next addressed the  townspeople. With the fiery zeal  of' the- youilg enthusiast-he inveighed ��������� a^ainot   thoso   ovils   of  society which made .it "necessary  to Have- a jail. He appealed to.  every resident there present ,to  join with him in exterminating  and^annihilating these evils; in  purifying and strengthening the  moral life of the locality, so that  the youth of the district might  reach maturity unscathed by  evil experience.  Mr. Colwell is a fine, representative of militant Christianity.  Tall, of commanding and pleasing personality, his ��������� vigor and  enthusiasm should be of the  greatest aid in advancing and  developing the spiritual- and  social life-atmosphere of Bella  Coola.  Mr. Manson last mounted the  rostrum. With the ease, balance  and precision of the seasoned and  tempered public speaker, accustomed to sway large audiences,  he reminded his listeners of the  meaning of this day:���������it is a tribute of memory to Queen Victoria, whose long rule and beautiful character engraved her  impress indelibly upon the hearts  of British people; and it is an  occasion of celebrating the present and the ever-increasing  might, majesty, and dominion of  the great British Empire. Such  events as he had this day witnessed in Bella Coola, Mr. Man-  son went on to say, augmented  and cemented this power; and he  desired, hoped, and believed that  each year the Celebration would  be more brilliant and successful;  that the town would grow and  improve continually: that progress of all kinds would be the  lot of Bella Coola. He reminded  his hearers of their duties of citizenship in this new western  country, wTiich yet is emphatically an adjunct to the Crown;  headjured tjiem to bear constantly in mind their privilege of fealty  and loyalty to the Mother country;  and he welcomed the strangers,  those of other birth who were  present,   by   assuring   them  of  and of her generous attitude,  wish, and intention, of furthering the destinies of each newcomer to her shores. Mr. Man-  son's address was dignified, impressive and in every way worthy  of the-principles for which he  stands.  Now, the giving of prizes.  Mrs. Draney, of whom Mr. Gibson humorously says that he dare  not enumerate the times upon  which she has rendered like service to Bella Coola, lest he appear  to contradict her appearance,  which does not suggest antiquity,  bestows these on the -victors.  They are sometimes hard to elicit  from the crowd. "Has anybody  here seen Kelly? " has to be sung  quite vigorously before that victor can be induced to make his  appearance. Now, at last, all  the prizes are distributed; three  cheers have been given with a  will to Mrs. Draney;  and now,  LOCAL ITEMS  Donald.  Quarter mile  Davis.  Long jump:  J. Hoage.

Mr. Gibson directs that England's  hymn of loyalty be sung:  "God  Save the King."    All���������tourists,  visitants and   residents  alike���������  join in this tribute; and while  they are singing the clouds part;  and  a glorious burst of triumphant,   exultant  sunlight  gilds:  the uplifted faces of the crowd.:  Nature, and human nature are in:  harmony and accord.  Now, by foot-trail and wagonf  road,.the concourse takes its wayi  through the woods towards the^  wharf.- Twilight'is coming on.'

Four boats compete;, the race  is late in starting; itris finished  in the dark. - The "Kimsquit"  owned by the Draney's Fisheries  Ltd., is the winner. ���������  Among the social festivites oi  the two days of Celebration were  a dance at the residence of Mrs.;  Clayton, on Friday evening, and  a similar occasion at the Grand  View Hotel, owned and operated  by Mr. Hagan.. Mrs. Clayton is  .the oldest lady resident of Bella  Coola; a town of nineteen years  of age. Her home was formerly  an old Hudson Bay Company's  post.  The Grand View Hotel merits  its name. From every window  one. may see rushing stream,  glowing woodland, and noble  mountain. It is ably and successfully managed by Mr. Hagan,  whose courtesy and consideration  make him an ideal host.  And now our regretful, reluctant tourist must say farewell to  Bella Coola. The impatien:t  "Camosun" whistles shrilly at  the wharf; "cast off all hawsers  and full steam ahead" is the order ;of the day���������or night!���������and  he must embark, bearing with  him a precious freight of memory  and pleasure. ,  After the fashion of the Japanese, who affix original poems  of gratitude and praise upon the  trunk or bough of their favorite,  most admired blossom-tree; our  tourist would leave with Bella  Coola a token of his appreciation  of, and sympathy with, her Day.  Let the following lines attest  his sincerity:  EMPIRE "DAY.  S. S. Princess Beatrice arrived  in port on Friday evening, bringing a large number of passengers,  many of whom came for the express purpose of attending the  Empire Day celebration.  'included in her passenger list  were, Messrs W. Manson, M.P.P.  J, H. McMullen, government  agent, D. McCloskey, C. R.  Quatter, W. A. Kerr, J. W. Glei-  zer,- T. A. Thompson, C. C. Mills,  J. Tallabot, V. M. Scribner, C.  :W. Cooke and S. Simonson.  ...  S.S.
