Athletic Association Organized  A well attended meeting was  recently held at the Grand View  Hotel for the purpose of organizing an Athletic Association in,  the valley.  While various sports are indulged in by the young men of  this district, and a high standard  of play in all branches has been  attained, the lack of proper organization has proved a serious  handicap. Recognizing this fact,  it was resolved to form the Bella Coola Athletic Association, the  officers being duly elected as  follows:  Hon. President, H. L. Harris;  President, H. M. Rolston; Vice-  President, Ed. Wheeler; Sec-  Treasurer, Rev. T.  C.  Colwell.  Managers: Hockey, J. N. Cran;  Football, _F. Hagan; Baseball, W.  H. Mackay; Indoor sports, J.  Hoage.

Barlow and B. Taylor left town on Wednesday last-  in charge of a bunch of horses  belonging to Mr. R. P. Bishop,  which they will take through to  Chilcotin for the winter, afterwards proceeding to Victoria by  way of Ashcroft.

"THE   BEST  YET"  Made in British Columbia  Was Louis Riel right in offer  ing armed resistance to the government of Canada and driving  out William Macdougall, whom  Sir John Macdonald had appointed to govern the Red River settlers?. If not, would Sir Edward  Carson be right in offering armed  resistance to the government and  legislature of Ireland, and to the  Imperial government and parliament, by which the Irish legislature will be created ?���������Toronto  Star.  WHAT WOULD THE  TORIES SAY?  Supposing Sir Frederick Borden, as minister of militia, had  suddenly  jumped   expenditures  for militia purposes from less than  seven millions per year to over  twelve millions and had started  to scatter drill halls all over the  country whether there happened  to'be militia units at the centres  or not; supposing as did the present minister of militia, he- had  taken Sir Ian Hamilton at the  country's expense to a Liberal  picnic and pinned a Liberal badge  on his breast; or had travelled  across Canada by a special military train and charged the country $40,000 therefor; or had gone  to England to again witness the  British   army   manoeuvres and  taken 23 officers with their wives  and lady private secretaries with  him.  Supposing Hon. Mackenzie  King, .as minister of labour, had1  failed to apply the provisions of  the Industrial Disputes Investigation Act to the Vancouver Island miners' strike, had merely  made a cursory and belated personal investigation, reported  failure of his attempt at personal  intervention, had a business associate and personal friend accompany him at the country's  expense and had left his friend  to make a formal report, at a  large fee per day, as to why the  militia had to be called in and  then had gone blandly off on a  two months holiday jaunt to  England.
