V-J'  A"' London, May 5.���������According to trustworthy information Metz is  Jbeing evacuated by the civil population.     Metz is the capital of  Lorraine and a city of about sixty thousand and is rated as one of  r the strongest fortresses in the world.    It is about 15 miles north  of the fighting line and 40 miles east of Verdun.  The Bella Coola Hotel has,  with the advent of summer, undergone a change of management. Mr. B. F. Jacobsen has  acquired possession of the finely  equipped building and intends  to make it a first-class hostelry.  With its new management and  its efficient staff the place will  undergo a thorough renovation  from cellar to garret, and it is  confidently expected that the  efforts to give the travelling  public in Bella Coola an agreeable and comfortable place to  stop, will prove to be remunerative.    The catalog of the Northern  British Columbia Agricultural  and Industrial Association is received. It contains the annual  report of the year 1915, with a  financial statement which shows  the Association to be in a flourish-  condition with nearly $1000 in  the treasury. Among considerable other information it also  contains the list of prizes to be  competed for at the exhibition  to be held at Prince Rupert on  September 20-22. j  Elias Roppen, one of a gang of  men engaged in hand logging at  South Bentink Arm, met with  an accident the other day  through what in logging parlance is called a "side winder"  hitting him on the head, causing  a concussion which "necessitated  his partner bringing him to Bella.Coola in search of medical aid.  They arrived in their launch 11  ���������'o'clock-Saturday night, tut as  the doctor was away- his partner  was advised to take the injured  man, who was then in a comatose condition, to Ocean Falls or  Bella Bella. They left again at  2 o'clock the same night.  increased to fifty thousand by  the end of this year.  His firm are rapidly increasing  their plant at Windsor, Canada,  where they now manufacture  shot shells and twenty-two cartridges. The empty cartridges  are made complete at the Windsor factory, only the refined  materials used in their manufacture being imported.  Mr. Burtch has been paying  an annual visit to our valley for  the past four years and he claims  this seems to be the only spot  which appears to be unaffected  by the war, business in his line  being if anything greater now  than ever before.  What connection the hospital  has with the schoolhouse does  not seem very clear.  The cannery tug Kiltik of the  Draney Fisheries, Namu, was in  here on Saturday for a lot of  potatoes.    .���������    ���������    -  Mrs. Harry Davis' house at the  Indian village sustained considerable damage from fire last  week. The energetic efforts of  the many Indians in fighting the  fire prevented a complete loss.  arko,  M. A. Seymour and Cai'l All  of Vancouver, have been in town  this week in the interest of an  aviation school to be established  in British Columbia.  Walter Laing, of the wholesale  house of Turner, Beeton & Co.,  Victoria, and T. J. Stephens,  representing J. Leckie & Co.,  manufacturers of shoes, Van-  couuer, are in town in the interests of their respective firms.  They report a decided improve-  mentin trade conditions throughout Northern British Columbia.  M. W. Marvin of Atn  paid our town a welcome visit on  Sunday and Monday. He did not  have time to spend many days in  town as his comparatively large  farm requires his entire attention at this' season of the year.  He invites the settlers to send  their cattle to him and he will  take care of them.  F. A. Johnson and his family  took a few days off last week  and paid their home at Firvale  a visit. The farm needed,some  of their attention just now; but  it did not take them long to get  their help at home going according to plans and now they are  again domiciled at their camp  near the mill.  The free entertainment given  by the W. C. T. U. at the Mackenzie school this evening in the  interest of temperance and prohibition should prove an attraction to our residents. Mrs. E.  Clayton has the function in  charge and a good time may be  confidently expected.  The entertainment has been  cancelled.  I. Fougner, Indian-agent, and  Herbert Sutherland, engineer,  returned from a tour of every  village within the agency.   The  NOTICE  SEALED TENDERS addressed to the  Secretary of the Bella Coola Telephone, Light and Power Company are  hereby called for. Tenders will be received until May 16, for repairs and  upkeep of the telephone line trom May  20 until February 15, 1917.  For the purposes of these tenders the  line is divided into two divisions. Tenders must be offered for each division  separately. One division comprises the  line from Bella Coola to 1. Fougner's  ranch; the other division, the line between Fouguer's to Win. Graham's  ranch.  For further information apply to -  A. C. Christensen, Secretary.  Among'the visitors to arrive in  Bella Coola on the last boat was  Mr.  C.  L. Burtch, representing  the Remington Arms-Union Metallic Cartridge Co.    Mr. Burtch,  who paid a visit in January to  the various factories owned by  the   Remington   Company,   has  yiven  us some very interesting  information     concerning     the  manufacture of   the   goods  he  represents.   From his story some  idea may be gained of the magnitude of  the ammunition, factory at Bridgeport.    He says he  visited    every    department    of  manufacture in it watching the  various processes including the  inspection department, which is  very extensive, spent three days  in going through and did not see  the same department twice.  In the arms' factory at Ilion  the most remarkable sight there  was the immense stock of materials.     Rifle barrels were  piled  Gunnar Saugstad, fishery officer at Rivers Inlet, and R. A.  Teebay, engineer, left last Saturday morning for Rivers Inlet on  the fishery patrol launch Merlin.  They are away for the fishing  season and will have their headquarters at the Brunswick Cannery.  Henry Haakenson is to be seen  passing through town every day  now, perched upon a load of  potatoes. We are told that he  is engaged in hauling fifty tons  of potatoes for shipment. Other-  farmers are similarly engaged  and it looks as if Bella Coola is  assuming her destined position  of being the granary of the  Northern Coast.  H. D. Brown, with a crew of  men, has been busily engaged of  late in extending the street past  the schoolhouse. Stumps and  dirt have been flying all week  in large quantities with a noise  and a roar that would do credit  to a German bombardment.   By  Want6(31* beef-strain cattle on     shares.     Two-year-  old heifers of the same breed required.    Not less than ten and  up to twenty.    For full particulars apply to���������  M. W. Marvin, Atnarko. B. C.  Upper Bella Coola Valley.  It is generally conceded that  the logging fraternity engaged  alor.g the rocks and mountains on  our northern coast is a pretty  hardy lot; but an incident related  to us this week by a man, whose  veracity cannot be doubted but  whose name we are too diffident  to expose to the cynicism of an  incredulous world, rather adds  to the high reputation in which  these hardy members are held  by their friends and acquaintances for power to resist exposure and hard hits. We will  not apologize for this long preamble because you will after  reading the story agree with us  that it needed it.  Geo. Hoy, a hand logger engaged in his calling at South Bentink Arm, in working round a  log in the process of being dragged along the ground managed  to fall and get the log on the top  of him. It is said, that before  the log could be stopped itground  him down in the gravel and the  dirt, and that it required the use  of a jackscrew to lift the log off  his body. But this young man  although for a time mauled almost beyond recognition escaped  without the breaking of a bone.  His body is all black and blue  and we suppose he feels somewhat sore after his crushing experience, but beyond that he has  not suffered any serious harm.  An army of men like that would  be able to penetrate the German  lines without hardly any casualties.  t  Sunday School  Church Service  10:45 a. m.  7 : 30 p. m.  Preacher for Stinday-  W. H.

Major-General Sam Hughes in j  his defense before the House of  Commons said  that he,  in en-  the war'the British parliament deavoring to place the large or-  in defiance of adverse votes in  M&alun pnpult sitprema rut lex."  SATURDAY, MAY G, 1916.  Mr. Bowser Is Optimistic.  \    According to an expression re-  .' cently   made   by   Mr.   Bowser,  1   ''the tide of public opinion as rejected   at   the "by-elections   is  .��������� , rapjdly changing in favor of the  ��������� . government."    It is said that  ."the wish, is the father of the  ���������thought," and the state of Mr.  Bowser's mind must be an illus-  " tration of the truth of this adage.  If he is right in his opinion the  public; must' have found, since  .the legislature opened, that.the  -government's case-isnot us black  as it'was supposed'to-be before  ^-   election.    * -       ~  If that is true, then the public  estimate of the government must  indeed have .been so low as to be  -   almost  beyond  our conception.  >'���������    It may be held that the opposition  members in parliament in,  -their investigations have found  ��������� '.nothing, that  was  not   already  v known as regards maladministration  and, extravagance,   b.ut it  ���������certainly should not be necessary  .tj uncover additional evidence to  prove in.the minds of ordinary  people the utter folly of continuing in office a set of public ser-  ' vants.who are pilingup the debts  of the.,proyince at the rate of 4  or 5 million dollars every year;  ������������������...who..have given into the hands  of speculators"the" best vacant  ��������� agricultural lands in the province|  thus barring out intending sett-  .  lers; who have, for a price ridiculously low, turned over enormous  < fields of coal to syndicates; public  ; servants who have guaranteed  ��������� -bonds to the amount of $80,000,-  . 0)0 to railroads which cannot be  completed until more money is  voted to assist them; who have  made the running expenses of  the province so high that there  is riot, another country on   the  face of the earth where the cost  of government is relatively as  high as here,  ��������� These and several other charges equally serious are admitted  on every hand by Conservatives  ��������� as  well, as Liberals, and have  made the government of British  "Columbia a by-word in both America and Europe.    And yet, in  the face of such facts, friends  of the government are boasting  ' that-nothing has been discovered  against    the    government.     It  would certainly be interesting to  know what more evidence of incapacity   these   optimistic   and  charitably   disposed   persons  would  consider it necessary to  discover in order to make them  want a change in the method of  peril of a-formidable rebellion,  passed a Home Rule- bill and  thereby showed as plainly*as''it  possibly could its sincere intention to grant to Ireland the long  fough't-for privilege.  The war put a stop to the putting of the law into enforcement,  and   nothing in   that  direction  will   be possible while this absorbing  struggle   is going on.  And loyal Ireland has acquiesced  in this'situation.   But Germany,  in her fight for world dominance,  has her.agents at work in all the  possessions, of her enemies, trying to stir up dissensions and insurrections.  , Her efforts in this  direction have not proved nearly  as successful as she hoped.    The  uprisings in'Sbuth-Af rica, Egypt,  India, Madagascar and elsewhere  have in no instance assumed proportions threatening the integrity of any of these colonies." Germany's latest' "attempt has been  made in Ireland, to induce the  discontented   element   to   avail  themselves of the present trouble  to make a dash for independence.  .But this attempt on the part of  Germany will, like all the others,  ���������be to her a disappointing failure..  The leaderwn the rebellion, Sir  Roger Casement, is a prisoner  ders for fuse eventually given to  the   American   companies,   had  "asked  at least fifty different  concerns to undertake the manufacture of fuse in Canada," but  had in every instance met with  fiat refusals.    It  was   then  he  turned to his friend Allison to  place the'order in United States;  the outcome of which we have  learned from the Kyte charges.  ', But in the face of this clear  cut statement "Industrial Canada," the organ of the Canadian  Manufacturers'Association, has  an entirely different story to tell.  According to the Victoria Times  this reputable journal   says in  effect:  "That Messrs. T. A. Russell  and Lloyd Harris, of the Ruisell  Motor Company, tried-to obtain  f^or their company orders for the  manufacture   of   fuses, ' which,  by the way, had. lain in the hands  of   the   Shell  Committee   from  November, 1914, to'April, 19.15.  They were referred by "Sir Sam  Hughes to Colonel Allison at the  Manhattan.  Hotel,   New   York,  for information.    They declined  to consult Allison   and  sought,  instead,   to  do   business direct  with the Shell Committee, and  were referred again to the New  York middleman.    Finally they  obtained a promise from the_committee that one  million of the  Committee, the Shell Committee  jhad awarded the contracts for  ;the whole five million to the two  j American   companies  promoted  by Allison,, at an average price  of $4.50 each.    Industrial Cana-  i da adds:  .. "There would seem to be something behind all this calling for  explanation.   For over 5 months  the Committee had been waiting  on the convenience of the United  States  promoters   to   get   over  $20,000,000  worth  of contracts  signed.    At last a real opportunity ^presents itself of getting  the business -placed in Canada.  For-the sake of gaining six days'  time, not in the actual delivery  of fuses, but simply in the signing of a contract for their manufacture,   and; without   waiting  those extra srx days to see what  the competitive tender was going to be, a committee of Canadian business men violate a promise,' pass up honest Canadian  capital   and ! honest   Canadian  labor in order to provide a feast  for a bunch of Yankee grafters,  and incidentally assent to an arrangement for   plundering  the  British treasury to the tune of  $2,000,000!'    There must be a  reason, and the reason should be  made known.  "Certainly somebody will have  to do a lot of explaining. On  the face of it that no Canadian  manufacturers could be induced  to accept orders is absurd."

The attitude of the foreigners:  of Saskatchewan and  Manitoba;  towards prohibition will be wel-?  come  news   to   many   of   yourj  readers. I  I  Rev. R. G. Scott of Saskatche-;  wan, tells us that when all'the  bars had been closed,.the Government   opened   twenty-three'  liquor   stores   for  those   wha  thought they could not do with-|  out alcohol.    Provision had been  made that these stores could be  closed or others opened, according to the wish of the people, at  the municipiaLelections in November.     Voting took   place  in  seven districts, in three of which  liquor stores  had  already  been  established,  and  in   four  other,  districts an attempt was made to  open new stores. , In every district the result was decisively in  favor'of total abstinence.    In the  three  districts   where   Government stores had been in operation, they were all wiped-out by  a vote of about two and a half  votes to one.    In the four districts where an effort was being  made to open stores all the attempts  failed by a vote of the  same relative proportions.  Particular interest had been  attached to our district, as the  population was largely foreign.  The presence of large colonies of  Galicians, French, Germans anc  Hungarians, was thought to bt  a strong force to overcome. These  people had always been accustomed to use liquor whenever  they had the opportunity. Everj  wedding and every holiday- was  celebrated with plenty of liquor.  Few were abstainers and none  too poor to obtain it. There was  almost no organization, so that  what temperance work was done,  was in most cases by individuals,  but the result was very encouraging.  A foreigner told me that he  had always been a drinker and  chat if a vote had been taken  when the bars were first closed  there would have been many  liquor stores open. However he  thought the people had found  out in four months that they got  along very well without it and  had more money than they ever  had before. He said that few  wanted the stores opened now.  A young Frenchman who has  a family and is a good worker  said to me: "The bar got me a  good many times. I spent a lot  of money and lost a lot of time.  I am glad the bar is gone and we  don't want the ��������� thing back-  again." In the rural municipality of Fish Creek where the population is almost entirely Galician,  it was thqught.the people would  vote strongly for a liquor store,  but it went dry by more than two  to one. Wakaw village, where  we have a very mixed population,  went dry by 47 to 16. What has  been done in such a district, can  surely be done in any place in  Canada.  Coming to Manitoba, we find  the foreigners quite as hostile to  the liquor traffic.

''IJUHHAT person so independent?  \X/HAT ambition more noble than to  be a producer of   the necessaries  of life?  Bella Coola   farmers are independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  '"THE REASONS for this enviable eordi-  ���������*��������� 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 arid 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.    -  DELLA 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.  #  there were five Ruthenian, three  Scandinavian and three Icelandic  papers that would not even print  a liquor advertisement. Perhaps  that will take some of the conceit out of us, and let us see that  the foreigner has more brains  than we gave him credit for.  Let us wake up and press forward.  H. Arnott, M. B., M. C. P.

Investors  should keep posted on developments by reading the "Courier."  "Field'Crop Competitions," is  the title of the latest bulletin.  It deals with the competitions to  be carried on by the Department  this year, as well-as the.results  of last year's events. It is profusely illustrated, and appeals to  the farmer'as very few bulletins  do. Hr-O.. English, Provincial  Soil_ and Crop" Instructor, is the  writer. -i Copies may be had, post  free, by addressing the Department of -Agriculture, Victoria,  B. C.   . "--"  British Columbia imports every  year over a million dollars worth  of sheep and mutton that could  be raised within the Province.  Alfalfa hay will winter sheep  economically and well. Roots  are not a necessity where good  alfalfa and clover hay is fed, as  these hays have a beneficial laxative effect in the winter.   -  With smaller flocks on mixed  farms the increase and  profits  are greater in proportion  than  with larger flocks, because the  sheep, get better care, and yet  live in summer on what would  otherwise be waste fodder.   The  owners.of many of these small  flocks report that their sheep are  the most profitable animals oji  the  farm.    They  require little  labor or expense in their care,  and are great wepd destroyers.  A yearly increase of about 90  per cent is the rule, even under  range conditions. <  Prices of both wool and mutton have risen of late years; and  are now very high due to a shortage in sheep and a.large demand  all over the continent;  jn the  eighties,, wool  .was   not-worth  more than 10 cents per' pound,  and Hambs.   about   $4.00- each.  Now ".the   prices   stand   about  double" these. '  Good grade ewes are  worth  pure-breds at least double these  figures. Lambs sold in the fall  bring from $7.00 to $8.00 each,  on foot. ' Early or Easter lambs  fetch as much, while weighing  only about forty pounds, live  weight, in April when they are  killed. Their mothers, old ewes,  sold fat in May bring from 7  cents up per pound on foot.  These figures show that there  is money in sheep raising.    This  is evident further in  the  keen  demand for breeding sheep, both  rams and ewes.    Very few ewes  have been  marketed this past  year.   Their "owners  will  keep  them as long as they will breed.  One Okanagan sheep raiser reports that he feeds his sheep in  winter at the average cost of two  and a half-dollars, and receives  18 cents per pound for the dres-,  sed lambs iri che fall.       -  '   ,   '  Growers   everywhere   in   the  Province report the remarkable  absence of disease among their  sheep���������another point in favor of  more sheep.    British Columbia  is quite as well adapted for sheep  raising as New Zealand," a country  with   an   enormous  export  trade in mutton -and.wool.    It is  to be hoped   that the present  boom  in sheep here will be long  continued.
