Camosun  on Sunday last brought news of  the sorry plight of two men who  were adrift on a scow.  It appears from the news to  hand, that the G. T. P. tug, Escort No. 2, was crossing Queen  Charlotte Sound with the scow  in tow, when she became disabled  and the hawser breaking the  scow went adrift on the Sound.  The tug was later picked up  by a passing steamer, but nothing had been seen of the scow,  which, it is thought,, has been  blown, out to sea by the heavy  gale prevailing at the time.  The "Camosun" was informed  of the occurrence by wireless,  and kept a sharp lookout for the  scow and its occupants but without success.

An independent Conservative,  in the person of Capt. Eustace  D. Maude of Mayne Island, has  also announced his intention of  contesting the riding.  Mr. Foster, the government  candidate, only gained his nomination by a majority of fout-  over Capt. Maude.  Vancouver, Nov, 27.���������A daring-  bank robbery took place at Agassiz on Tuesday, when six bandits  armed with heavy rifles held up  the Bank of British North America and succeeded in getting  away with a considerable sum of  money.  Dashing suddenly into the bank  the bandits proceeded to intimidate those inside by riddling the  windows and walls with bullets,  and while the employees were  still spellbound with surprise,  rushed upon them, tied their  hands and feet and then proceeded to help themselves to the  cash, afterwards succeeding in  making off with their booty.  Four of the bandits appeared  to be of short stature, all were  of powerful build and dark complexion, and all wore slouch hats  and heavy boots. Their probable  J ages are given as between twenty  eight and thirty years and they  are described as of foreign appearance.  Just what amount of money  the robbers succeeded in getting  away with is not known at present, but it is generally supposed  to have been very considerable.  No arrests have as yet' been  made.  300 Killed and Many More Wounded  El Paso, Tex., Nov. 27���������A hard  battle was fought yesterday in  which over three hundred were  killed and several hundred more  wounded.  The hospital facilities are of  the poorest description and numbers of the wounded are receiving little or no medical attention,  many of them .being forced to  cut bullets out of their own flesh.

Big Fire at Edmonton  Edmonton, Nov. 27.���������-A disastrous fire swept the wholesale  district yesterday, completely destroying the stocks of several  wholesale firms which occupied  the McKenny block. The damage is estimated to exceed two  hundred thousand dollars.  Extraordinary Feat  Aviator Flys Head Downward With  Passenger  Villa Coulblay, France, Nov. 27  Rolland G. Garros accomplished,  yesterday, for the first time in a  monoplane the extraordinary feat  of flying head downward carrying a passenger.      During hisj  wonderful   performance  he  re  peatedly turned his machine com  pletely upside clown.  It is our sad duty to announce  the death of Dr. Francis Cavan-  agh, late resident physician at  this place, which occurred at  Hagensborg on the morning of  Wednesday 26.  Dr. Cavanagh had been suffering ill-health for some time past,  and on Tuesday night was seized  with a sudden illness. Medical  assistance was at once telephoned  for, and Drs. Maude Cavanagh  (wife of the deceased,) and W.  E. Bavis, resident physician, immediately left for Hagensborg,  to find, however, that the stricken man had already passed out  Haugan well and have heard him  lecture repeatedly, were quick  to pronounce this as "the best lecture they had ever heard him  deliver.  A vocal quartette, with Mr.  Haugan taking the bass part, added greatly to the evening's entertainment.  Mr. Haugan lectures in the  Norwegian language, but is also  a speaker in English.  On Friday evening a large audience again listened to Mr.  Haugan in the Colony Hall.  Earl StOessiger and All Blake-  more have returned to town after  an absence of three weeks.  Mr. Stoessiger is now busy  making arrangements for the  building of a residence in the  of existence.  Dr. Cavanagh, who was agrad- j town,  uate of Edinburgh University, I '  wasonly38yearsofage,buthad     John   Nelson   came   m  already, made his mark  in his!

The company also eon template  the construction of several launches, including one from the  Peace River Valley to the Yukon.  Travel to and from this port  continues unabated.  Included in the lengthy passenger list of the SS. Camosun  arriving Sunday morning were  Messrs L. J. Calnan, B. B. Haugan and Master G. Christensen.  Among the outgoing passengers by last Sunday's southbound steamer were Mr. P. A.  Peterson and daughter who were  booked for Vancouver.  Mr. Calnan returns after having assisted in taking the yacht  Verada to her winter quarters in  Vancouver. The trip was a  pleasant one. and the vessel will  now lie snug until next spring.  Several of the. Bella Coola  people returned home on last  Sunday's steamer after an absence of six weeks attending the  Criminal Assizes, at which the  Kimsquit Indian murder case was  disposed of. Among those were  Constable V. Broughton, who apprehended the convicted Indians  after the shooting and brought  them to Bella Coola for the preliminary hearing. Rev. W. II.  Gibson,  Indian  missionary, who  attended court   as   interpreter.  Dr. Francis Cavanagh, medical  witness, who conducted the postmortem    examination    on    the  bodies of the four Indians shot  to death on the evening of September 10, and T. P. Saugstad,  who was one of the first white  men to be informed by the Indi-  i ans of the awful deed.  i    L. Thomas, one of the settlers  ; at. Safety Cove, Calvert Island,  j was in town on Sunday on  his  i way home after a prolonged stay  in Vancouver.    Mr. Thomas informs  us  that  there  are  some  twenty   settlers   located  on  the  island and about 27,000 acres of  land surveyed.    A steamer calls  weekly, but no arrangements for  a post office has yet been effected.  The  government  has  been  approached  for the building of a  wharf but along this line also,  nothing has been definitely settled.    The vegetables raised last  year were of the best, which goes  to show that the soil is very productive, a ready market is available at the canneries at Rivers  Inlet which is close by.  SS.

Haugan, an eminent  lecturer, whose visit of two years  ago is still well remembered, is  again delivering a course of lectures to large audiences at Hagensborg.  ��������� On Sunday evening at the Hagensborg Church, Mr. Haugan  took for his subject "The Sower,"  emphasising the world's great  need of good men and women,  who realize that it is their God  given duty to faithfully impart  to the world the best that is in  them, without first asking what  will be the reward, but recognizing that a Supreme Being is solely responsible for that. The  speaker gave many illustrations  from history of lives thus faithfully lived, showing the glorious  and lasting effects of such lives  on this and future generations.  On Tuesday evening at the  Colony Hall, Mr. Haugan gave  a very interesting and instructive  address on "The Signs and Needs  of the Times."  After stating some of the signs  of the times as he saw them.  The speaker asked the audience  to name what they considered  to be the greatest need of Bella  Coola Valley.  Many and various were the  suggestions submitted by the  audience, including such needs  as, a railroad, better government, laws, transportation facilities and education, etc., etc.  Taking up each subject separately and dealing with them in a  masterly fashion, the speaker  held his audience spellbound for  over an hour, and on finally presenting to the consideration of  all, that more good men and  women is indeed the greatest  need of our times, he surely  brought conviction into the minds  of those who heard him.  Many  people   who  know Mr.  on Thursday. He reports that  no snow has as yet fallen, and  things are in good shape.

Mr. Berry is evidently a favor  seeker, and judges everyone by  his own standard.  One would reasonably suppose  that if the property of a citizen  was being wantonly destroyed,  and that the government being  somewhat responsible for this,  were asked that this might be  prevented, that it would be the  duty of the government to take  some action: We fail to see how  such a thing can be construed as  a favor.  Mr. Berry may bow the knee  to the McBride-Bowser autocracy  but we cannot imagine "honest"  John Oliver doing so.  Is it no longer possible to get  justice from the government  without having it construed as  a favor.  Standard road at New Hazelton  when it was only half done and  of course was useless in that condition?" In this instance the  owners of the Silver Standard  mine took hold of the work,  themselves and increasing the  force of men are now pushing  the work to completion.  Is this creditable to the government?  accommodating two orientals.  o  The "Courier" sees nothing of  aserious nature in this latest d,s^  ooverv, though it may lead to  Sir Richard's goose being cooked  to an overdone.  Popular Christmas Gifts 1 \  A Dirks' Watch, Chain or Fob  When the Liberal government  was in power at Ottawa it was  the common cry of Premier Mc-  Bride and Attorney-General  Bowser that the people of British  Columbia did not get from the  Dominion government what was  due'to them. These two champions of our rights were rather  heavy on what they called "fan-  terms." Now with the change  of government at Ottawa we  hear no more of "fair terms."  Crooked Bye-Election  The Macdonald bye-election of  October 12,- 1912, 'generally- regarded as the most openly and,  violently corrupt election that  has occurred in Canada since  Confederation has been declared  r  void. ������������������ ���������'- ��������� :':'  On this,occasion, not only was  money spent by the Tories with  reckless openness,' but Liberal  .; workers were dogged by detectives and bogus, policemen, their  baggage searched by gum-shoe  workers and themselves intimidated. '.-'"-.  *   iWhen these  high-handed  methods" failed, Liberal workers  ^were actually arrested on trumped u'p'charges, with blank warrants issued, bypartizan magistrates, and were kept in jail with  all sorts of ill-treatment until the  election was over.  The Liberals demanded an in-  , vestigation on the floor of the  House but this was refused, but  rather than face the investigation in the courts, Mr. Alex. Morrison, the elected candidate, filed  an' admission  that   during the  campaign his agents had been  guilty of corrupt practices.  For a year Macdonald has been  represented by a man confessedly elected by crooked methods���������  so crooked that Hon. Robert  Rogers, dared not let him face  the courts.  During that session Mr. Morrison sat in an extreme back  bench to which he was not entitled and at the end he drew the  full indemnity of $2,500 to which  he had no right.  So much for Mr. Borden's Halifax platform.  o    o    o    o     o  Mr. Alex. Morrison was forced  to surrender himself in order to  save those higher up who were  even more guilty than he.  o     o    o     o     o  There has not been one bye-  election since September 21,1911,  / that has not been marked by insolent disregard for all laws of  decency and public opinion on  the part of the Tory workers.  On the closing down of bridge  work in the valley, comes the arrival of, 84,000 feet of bridge  material.  Evidently, this material was  ordered before the' fact became  known that appropriations  throughout the province had to  be curtailed, and now these timber's will not be used until next  year.  ���������Nothing has as yet been done  towards preventing the Necleets-  connay River from flooding the  town.    .  The reason must be there is no  money'available, for we. know  that the superintendent realizes  the urgent necessity of the latter  work.'   , -  When Messrs. McBride and  Bowser' were working so hard  getting the people of British Columbia to endorse their scheme  of giving a large slice of the  province to McKenzie and Mann,  that distinguished Canadian, Sir  Charles Hibbert Tupper of Van-  couvor, said that if the people of  British Columbia had millions to  give away to the Canadian Northern Railway Corporation there  was no need of asking for money  from Ottawa, and the 'fair terms'  cry was therefore played out and  the question a dead issue.  ;, o     o     o     o     o  Just so/ exactly, we hear no  more about "fair terms" but it  worked fine at election time.   It  Costly Living  People throughout the Domini-  are becoming greatly concerned  regarding the rapidly increasing  cost of living, and everyday we  read and hear of agitations directed towards the lowering or elimination of duty on the necessities  of life. Having to hand the example of .the United States and  the obvious effect of tariff reduction -in that country, it will be  but a short time .until Canadians  awaken to the injustice of tariff  taxation upon foodstuffs.  The question of tariff is for the  federal electorate as a whole to  decide, but in seeking a solution  of the problem of costly living  in this province, the tariff issue  may be temporarily set aside.  Not so, however, with extortionate transport charges. These can  be effectively eliminated only by  home production.  In seeking the reason for the  present high cost of living in this  province, we must go back to  where we were ten years ago,  and begin now to do the things  thatshould have been commenced  at that time! Had the basis of  agricultural development been  formed then.in a wise land settlement policy, we should now be  well'on the way towards a measure of home production sufficient  to meet the demands of our in-  of  able  bin  for  lirATrUP1^ for Men and Boys, in a great variety  WAlv>nEiiJ styles, but all warranted to by relia  Ei^ekieDeraT"We have many fine grades in men's Thin  Models   as  well as in  Models  especially  intended f0  Doctors, Merchants, Ranchers and Lumbermen.

At election  time onelof the persons that almost "yelled" his lungs out for  a white British Columbia was the  largest employer of Chinese, another talkative "advocate-for the  total exclusion of Asiatics was Sir  Richard McBride.   Still the yellow invasion has gone on increasing till it appears there is so little  room left that Sir Richard's kitchen has had to be utilized for  following five staple farm products, viz: fruit, cheese, poultry,  eggs and meats, and what do we  find. The last figures available  are those given by Hon. Price  Ellison in the budget of 1911,  and it must not be forgotten  that the cost of these various  articles has materially increased  since then.  Our production of these articles at that time amounted to  only a trifle over two millions  of a consumption of over seven  millions; and who will say that  British Columbia is incapable of  producing all these things in  abundance.  The only commodity we appear  to produce a sufheency of is vege  tables, and this fact is mainly!  due to the large and increasing]  number of Chinamen employed i  in this remunerative work. This  is indeed a discreditable showing  after our twenty years farming  in the province.  Yet it is not because of any  lack of land adaptable to agricultural development that such conditions exist. According to Mr.  Bowser, speaking in Vancouver  on Friday, October 24, no less j  than 104,500,000 acres were avail-1  able for settlement. Nearly half  the province, and although Mr.  Bowser did not say that this land  was suitable for settlement, he  certainly inferred it.  Of. course we do not believe  this ridiculous statement of Mr.  Bowser. We prefer to accept  the estimate of a government  statistician,  who in a lettej  the press,  wherein he decs]  that the estimate of a well kail  Liberal of ''".38,00*).0(XJ acres?]  absurd, himself limited thewl  arable lands to Io.OQO.OOOmri  However, let it i>e greater k|  smaller,  it matters not.
