Temperature : maximum on 8th, 68; mean  maximum, 51.5.    Minimum on >2nd, ?I>.  Rainfall, 4.59 inches.  VOL. 3���������NO. 6  BELLA COOLA, B. C. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14,  1914.  $1.00 a Yerr  Austrian  or  Summary of News from Seat of War  %  Sunday. It is officially announced by the British admiralty that  the cruiser Goodhope took fire during an engagement with  German warships off the coast of Chili and foundered. Admiralty statement also says, it is reported that, the-cruiser  Monmouth which according to a German report had been  sunk, was run ashore. The cruiser Canopus, it adds, was not  present at the fighting. Despatch from Valparaiso says,  nothing is known here concerning the British cruiser Canopus and armoured cruiser Dense which are reported to have  passed through the Straits of Magellan to join the battle-cruiser Mazotaland.  According to an official communication from Paris, the fighting in the north continues to be severe. Allies offensive movement is proceeding south and east of Ypres. In region of  Arras to Oise several German attacks have been repulsed. In  region of the Aisne the Allies have retaken the village of  Souper which was lost the other day. On heights of Metise  and east of Verdun several lines of German tvenches have  been taken.  Exchange Telegraph says, the Germans have concentrated  in Muenster, 78 miles north of Cologne, 150,000 fresh troops  which will be sent to Belgium at once-  Daily Mail correspondent asserts that after the defeat of  Germans in the region of Dixmunde, the Belgians sent out  four burying parties numbering altogether 4000 men to bury  German dead, which they estimated at 37,000.  No news from Russian front today.  Monday. The celebrated German forces of Tsing Tauhas surrendered. This releases the British and Japanese fleets to chase  " theGerman "warships "over the whole Pacific. Two thousand  three hundred Germans were taken prisoners, the Japs losing  430 men and 14 officers. Fortresses are, now handed over to  Japanese government.  German losses around Ypres during last fortnight are said  to exceed one hundred thousand. The Kaiser visited this part  of the battle line a week ago to witness the expected rout of  the British forces, but witnessed instead the rout of his own  forces. The present activity of the enemy between Yser and  Moselle is believed to be either another great effort to reach  Calais or to cover the withdrawal of a large force to the Prussian frontier.  In recent fighting in Russia and Galicia the Germans are  said to have lost 30,000 men and two hundred cannon. The  Russians have taken Koprukenie in Turkish Armenia and  sunk four Turkish transports.  Tuesday. Vigorous military, operations have been instituted for  capture of Constantinople by the Russians at earliest possible  date. News of this second great Russian campaign became  public simultaneously with the announcement that the invasion of Germany on the frontier nearest Berlin was an accomplished fact. Large detachments of Cossacks have crossed  the German border and threaten the lines of communication  of retreating German army. It is stated that the Russian  army in the field is sufficient to enable the Czar to effect the  subjection of Turkey without diminishing the vigor of his attacks on Germany, which have for their objective the occupation of Berlin.  A despatch from northern France to the London .Daily  Chronicle says, an advance patrol of Belgians have penetrated  to Ostend, which means that the whole coast line from Dunkirk to Nieuport and Ostend is relieved from the menace of  the last two weeks. Ypres is now the storm centre, the  town has been raised by artillery fire and abandoned by populace.  Severe fighting took place on November 6th on all Servian  fronts, the Austrians losing 1000 men and being compelled to  fall back on their positions before Shabath.  The Danish cruiser which engaged the German squadron off  the coast of Chili, and the British transport Otranto, passed  Delgada Point, Straits of Magellan, bound forFalkand Islands.  British admiralty announces that, the German cruiser Emden  has been driven ashore and burned by the Australian cruiser  Sydney. The Sydney had the advantage in both speed and  guns and forced the Emden to fight and although the latter  vessel tried her old trick which had always worked, to get  away, there was a running fight. The Emden was set on fire  by shells from the Sydney, and finding escape impossible was  run aground on Cocoa.Island. The casualties aboard the Emden were heavy although the Sydney captured all the main  officers including the captain. The Sydney lost three kihed  and fiteen wounded. Official dispatch says German cruiser  Koenigsburg it bottled up at Mafia Island, German East Africa,  by blockading of harbor channel.  Wednesday. Russian cruisers have bombarded Turkish forts in  the Bosphorus and coal magazines at Hcraclea, Asia Minor.

A Russian army marching towards Silesia has arrived at Mek-  hov, completely enveloping the  right wing of the German army  in retreat from Russian Poland.  A message from Bucharest,  according to an Exchange Telegraph from Rome say's, it is officially reported that two entire  Austrian divisions have been annihilated along the River Pruth,  while a small Russian force made  a frontal attack, the main force  of Russians invaded \ Bukwina  from the south, cutting off the  Austrians retreat and delivering  a fierce attack from the rear.  points except one place where  they still occupy two to three  hundred metres on the right  bank.

The farcical attempt to purchase the.Kitsilano Indian Reserve by the Provincial Government is recalled' to our memory  by a recent judgment qf. the  Court of Appeal, whereby the  two gentlemen who were allowed  to pocket $80,000 of public money  for their share in connection with  the deal, are ordered to hand  over $20,000 to a half-breed,  whose assistance appears to  have been invaluable in framing  the deal with the Indians. When  this intermediary sought to obtain his share of the $80,000  profits, he was scornfully waived  aside.  In this transaction a fortune  was paid to parties close to the  Attorney-General for services  which should have been rendered  by the Department of Lands, but  apart from this scandalous squandering of public money the whole  transaction was a costly fiasco.  The government'paid $300,000  for property to which it cannot  obtain a title. The reserve still  belongs: to the Indians, because  the transfer was not carried out  under the provisions of the Indian Act, fand has been\pronounced  by Sir Robert Borden and the  present Minister of the Interior,  to be invalid.  The form of proceedure prescribed, in the Indian Act was  entirely ignored by Mr. Bowser.  The Dominion Government, the  guardian of the Indians, was not  aware of the deal until informed  of it through the press.  As the matter stands today,  the province has paid out $300.-  000, of which middlemen received  . $80,000,,and the Indians still own  the reserve. How is that for  statesmanship?  o     o     o     o     o  The grave question of finding  employment for the enforced  idle in our cities is already occupying the attention of our civic  authorities. The mayor of Victoria telegraphs to Sir Richard  McBride in  London requesting  that he will use his influence  with the directors of the Hudson  Bay Company with a view to  having them continue work on  their new building in Victoria in  order to relieve, to some extent  at least, the serious situation in  regard to the unemployed.  When we read of the squabbling over the division of $80,000  commission to men outside the  government employ, for work in  connection with a $300,000 deal,  which amount,- less commission,  was handed over as a free gift  to the Indians (inasmuch as they  still own the property the money  was intended to purchase); and  when we recollect the $105,000  paid to intermediaries in the purchase of the Songhees Reserve,  and then think of'the excellent  use this money could be put to  today, it makes us sick.  The government cannot undertake any public works for lack  of money.' It is afraid of tackling  the land settlement problem for  fear of incurring expense. Yet,  when it comes to handing political sops to parties who are in no  way entitled to.them, for services  which should be performed by a  large and expensive department  maintained for the purpose, the  generosity of the government  knows no bounds.  ��������� o     o'   o     o     o  What Are, They Paid For?  ��������� Sir Richard-McBride is in London on business connected with  the, finances of the province.  Whenever a financial problem  confronts the government of this  province we read of Sir Richard  making for New York or London  to "raise the wind." What is  the matter with the Minister of  Finance?" We know we'haveone  in our employ because we see  stated in the public accounts  the salary he draws from the  public treasury. Why is he not  allowed to attend to his business?  Is it that he is not competent? If  so, why keep him on? Why  should Sir Richard go away at  this time and render initiative  impossible on the part of the  government? What about our  Agent-General in London? -What  use is he if Sir Richard's presence  is essential every time the London money market is to be. consulted?  In the case of the Lands Department. Why is it that when  an Indian Reserve is to be purchased a commission of about 30  per cent, has to be paid to outsiders. One would imagine that  the' Ministers of Finance and  Lands were a couple of out and  out "mutts", incapable of any  intelligent action. Indeed there  is much that lends suspicion to  this belief. Sir Richard bosses  the finances, Bowser bosses' the  rest, and the other ministers  seem to be mere marionettes,  .moving only when their strings  are pulled.  0,0000  Legal Advice.  Among recent applicants for  naturalization before the county  court at Victoria, the case of  Dr." Ludwig H. -Loenholm is of  special interest.  Dr. Loenholm although being  resident in this province for the  last eight years has never become naturalized, stating in court  that he had been advised that  there was no need for him to do  so. Asked by Judge Lampman  as to whose advice he had taken,  Dr. Loenholm replied that two  years ago Sir Richard McBride  had told him that there was no  need for him to become naturalized; that there was no-difference  made here between foreigners  and Canadians.  What Sir Richard meant when  he imparted this misleading information to this man will-remain a mystery. Certainly he  knew better,'and why could he  not just as well"tell the truth?  And Sir Richard a lawyer too.  i  o     o     o     o     o  No Kick at Navy.  The statement by the Admiral-  ty*that, of the 4,000 British ships  engaged in foreign trade, only 39  have been sunk by the enemy,  while out of the comparatively  small number of German mercantile ships 133 have been captured,  should silence any complaints  being made because the seas  have not been altogether cleared  so far of the enemy's warships.  The war has made practically  no effect at all upon British trade,  while the trade of the enemy has  been totally destroyed. What  more could the British navy do?  Working separately as they are  and refusing to enter a fight, it  is not an easy matter to round up  the few prowling war vessels of  Germany that are scattered over  the seven seas.  Eventually they will be accounted for, but in the meantime  there should be no carping about  what the British navy is doing.  o      O     O     0     o  We wonder who will have the  nerve to tender for the job of  supplying one hundred piles'for  the local wharf, the same to be  cut and delivered at the wharf  in less than a week's time. The  man who lands this contract and  fulfils it is worthy of an iron  cross.  o      O      O     0      o  Another'wholesale firm in Van-  r  couver has been obliged to assign.  The assets are said to be $45,000,  and the liabilities to be $150,000  of which $100,000 is owing to the  bank. What most people cannot  understand is why some concerns  seem able to get credit in excess  of their assets, while others with  high class securities cannot get  anything like the same advances.  There surely must be a day of  reckoning for some of those big  concerns. The people of Canada  should see to it that their banks  are taken in hand and brought  into line with modern business.  ���������Prince Rupert Daily News.  o     o     o    o     o  What the  War Costs  Holland.  That neutral nations are not  unaffected by the war is seen in  the case of the little Kingdom of  Holland. She has become a  clearinghouse for telegrams and  letters which cannot pass direct  from England to Germany, and  a common meeting ground for  German or Belgian soldiers flying  from enemies. A "consecration  camp" has been formed at Alk-  maar, and holds men from both  armies. The possibility of an  explosion occurring which might  lead to international complications has compelled Holland to  mobolize her army of 400,000  men, and all over Holland men  and women are being turned out  of doors and their homes pulled  down because they happened to  interfere with the range of the  guns of the forts.

Holland is determined to preserve her independence, and it  is said that her people never  grumble at the sacrifices they  are called upon to make^ahd as  in the long ago they are ready  even to summon their old ally,  the sea, to help them maintain  their freedom. , Evidently the  old Dutch spirit is still alive in  these sturdy sons of the men who  won' immortal fame by theirI4i  defiance of the Spanish \xw  when it was at the height ol.i  glory,  and  whom ' Spain  cocVi  not cow or subdue.

This is in accordance with  Britain's policy for her part of  this war, and it is sufficient reply  to the somewhat thoughtless and  perhaps rather excited complaint  of a few Frenchmen that Britain  is not doing'her share. British  statesmen have repeatedly said,  since the war began, that Britain  would keep a constantly increasing flow of men going to the continent, so that, no matter how  long the war lasted or how great  the German successes at the outset, Germany would find herself  in the end fighting against supe-  in  any  flour.  is   the  .'���������TO  rid  x*a  Ui  :i  ROYAL STANDARD is  the wizard of the kitchen  Acts like magic  recipe calling for  Royal Standard  "open sesame" to good  cooking.

There is no doubt that the  French commander-in-chief is  heartily in accord with this policy.  He is not throwing his own men  away in an effort to beat the  enemy in one blow. Like Britain's statesmen, he understands  that time is one of the best of  his allies, and that, no matter  how many Ysers may be crossed  by the Germans now, they will  find themselves eventually re-  crossing them in much the same  manner as Napoleon came back  from Moscow.  Women and War.  "It is significant that in all of  these countries which have declared war, women have not yet  been enfranchised. To be sure,  if they had the vote, they could  not stop war all at once, but they  would in time. In many nations,  as in England, when there are a  million more women than men,  the chief argument against  'Votes for Women' is that they  would tend to weaken military  prowess!  "Women have long since passed that stage where they considered it a glorious thing-to  bring sons into this world that  they might grow up to sacrifice  their life for their country in  warfare. However you put it,  war weighs more heavily on the  women."

Combustibles are the nourishment from which a great factory  draws its power, and for the  necessary supply of coal Krupp's  works at Essen are most advantageously situated. Not only is  there a coal mine within the  grounds, but two other collieries  in the district belong to the firm.  But even these three mines are  not sufficient to supply the demand, which for the steel foundry and its dependencies amounts  to not less than 350 carloads of  ten tons each per day, that is to  say, in the neighborhood of one  and a quarter million tons per  [annum, which about equals the  average supply in Germany for  one million of its population.  Most of the coal is consumed in  its natural state, under the boilers, in furnaces, or in open fires.  But a large quantity is also  burned in the form of coke in  shaft and blast furnaces in the  foundries and Bessemer works.  GEOl'KCKY K. HUHNETT     D. J. McfitJfiAN  C.K..

As an instance of how public  money is spent, it is reported  that the naval department sent  the steamer Estevan from Esqui-  mault to Lazo with about 400  pounds of supplies for the soldiers stationed there. It took  58 tons of coal to steam the vessel both ways. The supplies  could have been purchased at any  local store, and there are nine  of them here.

Bella  Coola   farmers are independent,  they are strangers to hard times.  THE REASONS for this  enviable  condi-  dition 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.

T. r.  to Give Employment  During the Winter  Prince Rupert, Nov. 12.���������Indicative..of their confidence of the  prosperity that the future will  bring to the new Garden country  in Central British Columbia along  their new transcontinental line,  the Grand Trunk Pacific announces that contracts have been entered into with Messrs. Carter-  Halls-Aldinger Company for the  construction 'of terminal buildings at Prince George, Endako,  Smithers, and Pacific, four thriving divisional points on their  main line. This work will take  care of a very large number of  mechanics and laborers during  the coming winter season. The  works are to be extensive' and  ample for the anticipated needs  of the next few years, and include roundhouses, machine  I shops, etc. In addition, it is  probable contracts will be let for  the works at Prince Rupert, the  coast terminus, within a short  time, and in further addition to  these works the company are also  constructing a large number of  "warehouses, stations and other  buildings at the divisional points.  Altogether the work to be provided by the Grand Trunk Pacific  railway through Central British  Columbia this coming winter will  be brisk.  In-line with progressive policy,  oil burning locomotives will be  used in fast transcontinental  service, and in this connection  the company are -also preparing  contracts for largeandextensive  developments for their proposed  oil storage facilities from Jasper  Park west toPrince Rupert. This  work will give a great deal of  employment to various classes  of company mechanics, as it is  intricate and requires skilled  labor. At Prince Rupert the Imperial Oil Company are installing,  a quarter of a million oil plant.  By May 1 next the entire mountain division from Edson to the  Pacific coast will be completely  fitted with up-to-date terminals  and plants generally, and equipped to handle perfectly the large  traffic, both sight-seeing and  commercial, which will flow to  and through this new and fertile  country. ,  Hagensborg Lady Passes Away.  Hagensborg, Nov. 13.*��������� The  death of Mrs. G. B. Olsen, daughter of Mr. P. Lauritson, occured  early this morning after a long  illness.  Deserters  ARTEMUS WARD, the famous American humorist, whose humor sometimes was a lance-thrust,  once said that he was willing to sacrifice all his first  wife's relations on the altar of his country. Many a  man has been willing to let others do his fighting for  him���������willing, also, to share the rewards of peace and  victory. Men of this type belong to the deserter  class.  In Canada are hundreds of business firms  striving with all their might to make better  times for themselves and their communities.  To them all honor.  But there are other firms���������manufacturers,  wholesalers and retailers���������who are "standing pat," "playing safe," doing absolutely  nothing to build up business. They are mere  lookers on, not participants in the valorous  struggle of their brethren to maintain and  establish good times.  Look about and you will find in the advertising columns of this and others newspapers  many messages from firms with a sturdy  confidence in the future.  Lifter or Leaner���������which are you?
