 : a  VOL.  BELLA COOLA, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15,  1913.  $1.00 a Year  Already Planning to  Drive Golden Spike  Prince Rupert, Nov.  13.���������By  June of next year, possibly July,  the last spike  will   have been  driven by the Grand Trunk Pacific in its transcontinental railway.    The two ends of steel will  be linked up near Eraser Lake  and Mr: Collingwood Schreiber,  Dominion   government   railway  inspection engineer,  who made  the announcement, says that the  ceremony of   driving the gold  spike will be marked with fitting  ceremonies.  ���������'Right now the work of building the line across northern British-Columbia is proceeding more  rapidly than at any other time,"  says Mr. Schreiber.     "Over 6,-  500 men  are employed and no  serious labor troubles have held  the line back.   The gap between  the two ends of steel is being-  rapidly lessened and rough gracing is done nearly  the entire  [distance.    The last spike will be  fdriven near Fraser Lake.   Trains  fare running west from Edmonton  to McBride and east from Prince  ^Rupert to Rose Lake."  "���������-TiTTmrrim  Terrific Storm  on Great Lakes  Heavy Loss of Life Is Feared  Vancouver, Nov. 14A terrific  storm with blinding blizzards is  raging in the east.  Quantities of wreckage is being washed ashore along the Canadian shores of the Great Lakes.  No estimate can as yet.be made  as to the loss of life which cannot be otherwise than heavy, as  while several vessels have doubtless been wrecked nothing definite can be learned from the  wreckage.

Resident Engineer in  Fisheries Offices  Cabinet Changes  Not Contemplated  Ottawa, Nov. 13.-The Eventing Journal says: "The story  |sent out regarding impending  Ichanges in the Cabinet, involving  fthe appointment of Hon. C. J.  |Doherty to the Chief Justiceship  lof the Supreme Court to be succeeded as Minister of Justice by  IHon. Arthur Meighen, with other  fshufnes in the Cabinet, is wholly  [without foundation."  The whole story was given an  jabsolute denial at the office of  fthe acting premier, Hon. Geo. E.  [Foster, this morning. No Cabinet changes are under contemplation. The story is not a new  jone and is based upon the rumor  I circulated some time ago.  Ottawa, Nov. 14.- It is understood that a resident engineer in  British Columbia is to be appointed by the fisheries department  to have special and exclusive  charge of removing obstructions  to the free ascent of fish in the  rivers of British Columbia.  Forest Branch Fees  Break All Records  Victoria, Nov. 14. This year's  revenue of the forest branch of  the department of lands is expected to break all previous records and approximate $3,000,000  according to a statement issued  by N. A. Grainger, acting chief  forester in the absence of H. R.  MacMillan.  Foster's Next Trip  Ottawa, Nov. 13. Hon. G. E.  Foster intends to leave about  Christmas for England to attend  the further sittings of the imperial trade commission. He will  be absent a month and will be  back in Ottawa soon after the  session opens. Mr. Foster does  not purpose attending the sit. tings  of the imperial trade commission  to be held in South Africa.  May Equal Klondike  Vancouver, Nov. 14.    Flour in  murder of Charles and Emma  Wilson, George Paul and Watchy  Guss, all Indians of the Kimsquit  band-,-at Kimsquit on the night  of Wednesday, September 10.  A point which is expected to  have a very important bearing in  the' trial will be fought out by  the attorneys for the crown and  defence, that is whether the dying statement of George Paul  will be admissablt as evidence.  T. P. Saugstad, foreman of the  Kimsquit  cannery, told   on   the  stand how he had gone to the  shack occupied by George Paul  on   the  morning   following the  tragedy, and  found   Paul  lying  stretched   out   in   blood-soaked  blankets.    He told of examining  the wounded man and finding a  large gaping hole above the hip  on  the right side.    A brief examination of the case convinced  witness  that the  injured  man  could not live long.    Further examined, witness stated that he  spoke to the wounded man saying,   "Paul,   this   looks   bad,"  Paul answering, "I know that I  am going to die, but that is alright."  It was at this point that the  crown was stopped from obtaining any more evidence from this  witness, and the question will be  fought out later, as to whether  or not George Paul's statement  could be construed as a dying  declaration.  Another witness who added his  quota to the case for the crown  was Jim Pollard, chief of the  Kimsquit tribe, who, because of  his position, is also rated as an  otticer of the law. Pie said that  on the night of the tragedy he  heard the party in the. boats en-  what was the matter. The witness proceeded to relate how they  suddenly came on the boat occupied by the prisoners, and how  Stickine Joe, standing with a  rifle in his hands, fired the shot  which killed Watchy Guss. Pollard further told how, fearing  that he himself would be shot,  went ashore leaving the body of  Watchy Guss in the boat. Later,  he went to the shack occupied  by George Wilson and Stickine  Joe, taking away with him the  latter's rifle. Witness stated he  believed both men were quite  sober.  Cross-examined as to whether  or not there had been any trouble  between Stickine Joe and himself  regarding who should have been  chief of the band, Pollard said  there had been none. Council  then asked witness: ''How were  you chosen?" "'My people elected me," replied Pollard. Questioned further as to how his  people had come to elect him,  Pollard replied, "O, they wanted  a good man, so^they chose me."  Still under cross-examination,  witness admitted that Stickine  Joe was a chief, and that when  he (Pollard) died, Joe would  probably be his successor.

Mackay spent Tuesday in town returning to Hagensborg on Wednesday.  Mr. Mark Smaby of the Ocean  Falls Company, visited town on  Tuesday, after going the rounds  of the various camps in the neighborhood.  Mr. Smaby had a somewhat  exciting experience when, proceeding up the inlet in the power  boatBentick, the tail shaft broke  completely disabling the craft  in mid-channel. Fortunately the  weather was calm with a fair  wind and by rigging an improvised sail, Mr. Smaby and crew-  managed to make camp 2 on  South Ben tick Arm where the  boat now lies awaiting repairs.  Shipments of lumber are still  being made from Ocean Falls.  Bella Coola Has New Doctor  Dr. W. E. Bavis is appointed  resident physician.  Dr. Bavis is a graduate of the  Western University, London, Ontario, and has practised in this  province for several years.  On the arrival of his family  from Vancouver on Sunday's  boat, the doctor will take up his  residence in the house provided  for the resident physician which  adjoins the hospital. ;  Dr. Bavis is much impressed  with the outlook at Bella Coola,  and expresses complete satisfaction with the accommodation  which the residence and hospital  affords.     ���������  The construction of the lockup  and constable's quarters is near-  ing completion under the able  foremanship of Mr. E. Edwards,  who expects to have the place  ready to receive the constable  and any guests who show a desire for intimate knowledge of  the burglar-proof steel cages.  Mr. Edwards, in this work,  has shown himself to be an expert builder and in selecting him  as foreman on this job we consider the superintendent made-a  wise choice.  Frank Ratcliff, of Stillwater,  arrived in town on Wednesday  for supplies.  Frank and his brother Walter  are making preparations for the  Chief constable W. Owens of I winter's trapping.  Prince Rupert arrived by gasoline launch on Tuesday evening  for the purpose of inspecting  the premises of the Grand View  Hotel respecting an application  by the proprietor Mr. F.

Presently  from Rivers Inlet, an eye v.'itness  of the shooting of Charles and  Emma Wilson and George Paul,  are still to be heard.

Falls Into Creek  A somewhat exciting incident,  fortunately attended by no serious results, occurred at Mr. J.  M. Rolston's survey camp last  Sunday evening.  It appears that Fred Minaty  had visited town and returning  home in the dark hours became  suddenly possessed of a thirst so  fierce, that without waiting to  light a lantern, he proceeded to  the creek for a pail of water.

A Dangerous Delay  It is now approaching one  month since this town was swept  by a flood that caused such dam-  age to the government road, as  to necessitate the expenditure of  considerable time and money in  order to even temporarily repair  the same.  On Sunday last the water was  almost]again over the road in the  town, and had the rain continued  for one hour longer, the road  would have again required repairing at an increased cost.  Yet nothing has been done towards preventing a recurrence  of the flood of a month ago.        '  We understand that Mr. Baxter, a government engineer, had  been hurriedly summoned to inspect the Necleetscohnay River,  that plans were to be prepared  and early action taken.. Now we  hear that Mr. Baxter's visit is  indefinitely postponed, and- so assume that nothing will be done.  Do the people of the town realize; that until the river at a  .point above the town is given  proper   attention,   they   are   in  constant danger of another flood.  It is not too late in the year for  Bella Coola to have a spell of  warm weather with heavy rain,  Which with snow on the mountains means high water, which  in   turn   (unless   precautionary  measures are immediately taken)  means a flood.  Surely in an urgent case of  this kind, money is always available.    Then why not get busy ?  o     o     o     o     o  Or is it that our local authority  is stalled and awaits to be told  by Mr. Baxter exactly what shall  be done.  o     o     o     o     o  In last week's Courier appeared  .an-interesting letter from Mr.  F. A. Johnson, of Firvale, relating how on the instigation of  . Mr. Manson, M.P.P., a delegation  of settlers from around and above  Nootsatsum,  made   a thorough  weight, as he has perhaps had as  much or even more practical experience as a road-builder than  any person in the valley.   ���������  More especially is this letter  interesting, in the fact that unlike so many supporters of the  government, Mr. Johnson attempts no apologies for his altitude.   . . .  It appears strange to us however, that this north route, which  the settlers after a careful examination so unreservedly condemn, should have been chosen  and recommended by the road  superintendent.  It seems to have,been obvious  to these settlers that the building  of this road would be a very ex*-  p'ensive undertaking and that the  final results could not be other  than unsatisfactory.  They seem to have discovered  several hundred feet more required rock-wrork than was seen  by the superintendent. In'short  they condemn the project as a  waste of money, while the superintendent recommends it on the  grounds of feasibility, usefulness  and economy.  sum  The last effort at the old crossing was a thing of ridicule to all  who saw it,.laid as it was on the  moving bed of the river. But the  government insisted and the  bridge was built only to collapse  at the first high water, lasting  only a few months. Another $5,-  000 thrown away.  The amount of money spent in  this valley and the little actually  accomplished ha3 been repeatedly  described as shameful.    Even on  ance by Canada of a purely Canadian navy would have created  no such suspicion in Germany.  An Australian navy is being constructed without any such complications.  The action of the Borden government in utilizing, for petty  partizan purposes, a great national problem, stands in the way of  that desirable achievement, the  cessation of the European armament craze.  o    o     o     o    o  Sir Richard McBride should  take a long, searching look at  that Alaska railway proposition  before he entangles himself and  this province in it.

Meanwhile, there is a tendency
on the part of the citizens to organize and discuss questions of
intimate concern. There is a demand for suitable meeting places
conveniently located. The schools
could be put to no better use than

"The awakening of the American people, has stirred Canadians
in' their long slumber.    The revolt against   protection,   which
taxes the many for the benefit of
the few, is spreading fast.    The
