You and your fellow workers |  The people of the town of Bella Coola showed the high esteem  in which they hold their pastor,  Rev. T. C. Colwell, by turning  out in large numbers to listen to  his farewell sermon on last Sunday evening.  He has found it his duty to  obey the country's call for men  to come to her defense in this  war, and while our community  regret very much to lose him,  and as we hope only for a short  time, yet it is willing to suffer  inconveniences and loss that the  needs of our country may be met.  The services were of the usual  character, Mr. Colwell true to his  custom delivered a carefully prepared and scholarly sermon,  which held the close attention of  the audience to its finish.  Rev. VV. H. Gibson followed in  an appreciative and happy speech  dwelling upon the energy, singleness of purpose, and faithfulness of the departing minister.  The audience showed its sympa-  thv with his utterances bv a  rising vote of thanks to Mr.  Colwell.   We learn through a letter from  Chas.

Some of the ladies have had  the method of raising the money  asked for, as outlined in the letter, under consideration and have  concluded it is not to be commended in the community. They  have decided to aid the very-  worthy cause by appointing Mrs.  H. G. Anderson, Mrs. S. Le C.  Grant and Miss Ruth Nordschow,  receivers of donations. There  will be no canvass made, but  readers of this article are asked  to please assist by sending contributions of any amount to one  of the ladies named, who will  account for the same and forward the funds received to headquarters.  in a comparatively short time became very prosperous.

His neighbors lent him some assistance at  the time, but it was not long be-'  fore Mr. Peterson recovered lost  ground, with houses, farm machinery, implements and every  facility for the conduct of his  farm, and also considerable capital invested in securities of different kinds.  He leaves a widow, one son  and five daughters to mourn his  untimely death. His children  are: Fridthjof, Mattie and Esther  still at home; Mrs. P. Gadsden of  this place; Mrs. M.

Taylor, have now finished  the arduous work in their various  callings in which they have been  engaged for a long season and  are now bent on enjoying themselves. The festive bear and the  elusive goat are hard to get at  in their mountain fastnesses and  offer nothing but great bodily  strain to hunt, therefore hold out  no allurements to these sagacious  gentlemen. They want to stay  on the level and seek pleasure  where walking and sailing is  <ood.  They are now off on a trip to  Price Island, located west of  Milbank Sound. They intend to  be away for about one month. It  is to be hoped their appearance  when returning will be such that  they will dare to land in daylight.

'������������������ The British Empire' is the only  realm in the world, besides the  United States, where there is riot  .'"compulsory military service.  Every other nation finds it perfectly proper and necessary to  reserve: to its government the  right tb: call out at any time its  . ablebodied   men   to   serve   the  nation in time .of war.  _.,_-. One of the things necessary .to  . be done to preserve the integrity  of  the.nation  is to   defend it  .against;'its foes, and it is the  duty of those who compose that  nation to be in readiness to do  so when called upon.  But in a ^ world more or less  selfish there will always be found  . people who shirk their obvious  , duty and leave it for others to  r. dp it for them.    It does not seem  - right that the laws of the land  should uphold these shirkers and  thereby place an undue amount  of the pommon burden upon the  . shoulders of the more generous  and conscientious of its citizens.  It may be a just cause for pride  -.that-the army, the British Empire has raised for this war, is  the largest volunteer army in the  World's history; but we are, at  present, not looking for things  on which to pride ourselves, we  are rather striving to accomplish  that which we must do.   There  is not much doubt in our minds  that among the other enlightened  . nations of thejvorld in a similar  emergency just as large a proportion of their sons would have  shouldered arms in their coun-  " try's defense.  When we see how Canada, of  all the British possessions is lagging behind in the number of  soldiers enlisted, we are not exactly proud, but become painfully  aware that our men have not yet  fully realized their duty in the  case and the seriousness of the  situation, and therefore do not  the other is "out" and; therefore,  such a fierce jealousy takes hold  of the "outs'"-so that they will  use almost any kind of-means to  secure the places of- those- who  are so fortunate as to be feeding  from the public crib;- but the dif-  jference in two parties.should al-  : ways be a difference of opinion  In regard to what policies are for  the best interest of the nation..  Under- the present system .of  government it seems impossible  to secure the necessary efficiency  and scrupulous care in _the administration of- public affairs  without a party in opposition of  day.'   -  Both Conservatives and Liberals should insist on the strictest economy in all the branches  of government; neither party can  afford  to defend until-the last  minute a course which they in  their   innermost   soul- know   is  wrong. .As for instance in the  case of the accusation  and exposure of .the corruption of the  late Roblin government of Manitoba.    The Conservative leaders  and press defended this government until it was. impossible to  do so any longer and largely because of   this   foolish  defense  went down  toT ignominious defeat in the next election. -  The Conservatives of -British  Columbia are pursuing the same  foolish tactics in defending a  government which has made this  the wealthiest province in the  factory. It took him over two  months to make up his mind what  answer would/give him the greatest strength; with the voters/  And in this decision it seems to  us his judgment has failed him.  His answer is of a character to  alienate many while it will win  but few.  The request of the Prohibition  Convention held in Vancouver,  August 25 and 26, were two fold:  That a bill for the prohibition  of the liquor traffic similiar to the  one. endorsed by the electors of  Alberta, July 21, 1915, be submitted to "the voters of British  Columbia; and that this bill be  submitted on a date other than  that of a general election, in order to keep it from being entangled in partisan politics.

The following questions have  been found of sufficient magnitude to form the cleavage between two great political parties,  namely: the effect of a high or  low -tariff; whether to build war  vessels to' be added to the fleet  of the Empire, or to build up a  separate Canadian navy; how 'to  get "the best results from the  agricultural and timber lands belonging to the Crown.  On these and any number of  other serious matters there will  by capitalists and-laborers alike.  -We venture to assert that there  is not a province in Canada where  the hard times are so pronounced  as here, and the cause cannot be  laid at failures of crop on either  land or/sea, or a lack of other  natural resources.  "Ordinary intelligent," honest  and careful statesmen could have  prevented the deplorable situation our province is suffering  from, i     - '        '--���������'."

To a mind warped' by av long  practice of shuffling methods and  evading issues, this may seem  very fair and the only way of  submitting the question; but the  result of such a manner of submission will certainly defeat the  object sought.  The voters mind wiH be confused by having to choose from  several propositions he has not  studied very muiih, if at all. It  will bring, about no decision'as  to choice; no one of the propositions will, short of a miracle,  receive a majority of the votes  cast- And then when this result  has been obtained our friends, if  in power, will laugh in their  sleeves and solemnly tell the  people that the vote was undecisive arid that they had received  is Very anxious that the -people no mandate from the people to  shall have an opportunity to express their idea of just what they  want; that he is considering a  series of different propositions  to submit to rthe electorate, so  that they can choose what suits  them best, and by the result of  the vote the' government will  know just what sort of measure  take any further action.  The Premier's reply as to the  vote being taken on a day separate from that of the general election is unfavorable. Sir Richard  says that probably only about  fifty per cent, of the people will  take enough"interest in the ques  tion to come out and vote or  separate day.    Only extremis  on either side will register lh|  will on the proposition. And thl  again he argues that the exper  of a separate election is a be  $40,000 and must be consider^  It certainly would have been  the interest of British Columl  if-this government had been]  careful   about   expenditures  other directions as they are]  this case.  But if the prohibition measu  is voted on in the general elect!  it very likely will be found til  the powers that now be ha  gone down to defeat, and thalj  will devolve upon the Liberals!  deal with the result.

About   one   hundred   million  dollars are spent in drink every  year in the Dominion.    Even if  it did no harm it would be the  part of wisdom to save that large  sum especially during the war.  But  when   we consider that  it  does do much harm and entails  so much further expense itseems  needless to discuss it.  In   England  and   the   United  ! States it is conceded that ten per  jt-ent  of  all   deaths   are  caused  i  ; directly or indirectly by drink.  ; If we adopt one half of that per  jcentage for Canada it gives us  about five thousand deaths caused  by drink in Canada every year.  j Where there are so many deaths  there must be a much larger  number who are more or less injured- by if. We shall certainly  lie within the mark if we say that  ten thousand persons are killed  and injured every year by drink.  It has been shown in several  places that it costs about five  times as much as the revenue  receives from the traffic to care  for the paupers, orphans and  criminals it causes.  It has also been shown that if  the money spent in  drink  were  spent in useful articles it would  give employment to eight times  as many persons as are engaged  in the manufacture of liquors.  ;     Reports from many places show  : that the burden of  taxation  is  I greater in wet than in dry towns.  ;[���������  some places the tax  rate is  i double.    The saving in police expenses  alone  is more than the  license fees.

Bella Coola  farmers are independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  HTHE REASONS for this enviable condi-  * 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 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.  3  &  OELLA 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.

Keep Up the Fertility of the Soil.  The characteristic vwhich distinguishes   the /fertile western  prairie soils is'the: large proportion of vegetablernatter with its  accompanying nitrogen.    It is to  this fact that they owe their re-  ?narkable   fertility  and   lasting  quality.    For the most part they  certainly contain abundant stores  of the mineral elements of plant  food, but in this respect they do  not differ from many soils of less  productiveness in other parts of  the Dominion.    It is the larger  percentage.of nitrogen holding,  humus' forming material  incorporated with the sand and clay  that give to these soils their superiority.  It is  stated by Dr. Shutt, of  Ottawa,  that nitrogen , may  be  regarded as the chief index of  the fertility of prairie soils, the  most reliable -measure of their  crop producing power.   Nitrogen  is the chief constituent of humus,  but the latter is very valuable in  addition to being the storehouse  for the ��������� nitrogen  that  may  be  readily nitrified and made available for the crops'.    During its  further decay it aids in liberating  potash, ph'osphoric acid and lime  so that in all probability a large  part of the food supply of the  growing crops is obtain ed through  the humus.  ' TJhere is also to "be observed a  wonderful influence on the physical condition of soils.    This is  most markedly feltin increasing  the capacity of the soil for holding moisture. . Investigations at  Ottawa   have   shown   that   the  moisture holding power of the  soils is in  direct proportion to  the organic matter contained. Its  power of   modiiying tilth and  temperature is  common  knowledge to all and need not be enlarged upon here.   Jn short it is  humus that gives, "life" to the  soil, for it is the material upon  which the useful micro organisms feed/organisms that prepare food for farm crops, hence  it is a���������fitting; and comfortable  medium for seed germination  and root extension.  Already, manure   applied   to  prairie soils is producing excellent results.    It has been found  that at the North Dakota Experi:  mental Station that manure has  given a return of $1.40 per, load  and that was en the heavy Red  River  Valley soils.    To secure  ihis result it was applied to a  corn crop which it increased as  well as the wheat crops that followed it.    Had it been applied  directly to.the wheat these good  results would   likely   not   have  been secured.    In fact, it might  have brought in the first crop a  decrease instead of the"25"per  cent increase. ' ��������� ���������  .  Fertility can be maintained and  even increased without the-use  of commercial fertilizers, but the  farmer must realize' that the essentials for such procedure are  rotation of crops in ,which  leguminous .crops take an important place," the marketing'of his  crops in the form of animal products, and trie return to"the land  of the organic matter taken from  it. ���������������������������        .'    .       ,  : The law.oi nature.is; "Do the  thing and you shall have the  power, but they who do not the  thing have not the power."  Save the Liquid Manure.  It is not good economy to spend  money for organic nitrogen in  tankage, blood or fish, while  clover or veitch can be grown  as a catch crop and supply such  nitrogen free of .cost.'  It is poor economy to buy potash  while great quantities are being  wasted in liquid manure. It  might be stated here that a ton  of sheep urine contains 42 pounds  of potash while a ton of the solid  excrement contains only , nine  pounds; a ton of cow urine contains 27 pounds of potash while  the solid excrement contains only  2 pounds, and a ton of horse  urine contains 25 pounds while  the solid excrement contains only  8 pounds.  In spite of the value^of liquid  manure  as   a  potash fertilizer  little or no effort is being made  to preserve it, and yet potash in  the form of muriate is being offered in small lots at $250 a ton.  It is bad ' business to keep on  buying plant food elements such  as phosphoric acid while your soil  is abundantly supplied with these  elements.     \Vhile  money spent  in buying chemicals is not usually  lost thorough such mistakes it is  not wisely invested.
