 (9)3  fSBSB*  K:J  IF YOU WANT GOOD SPORT  VISIT BELLA COOLA. EXCELLENT HUNTING AND  FISHING.  WEATHER   REPORT  Compiled  by Mr. C.  H. Urseth, of the  Hagensoorg Observatory.  Temperature for the month of October,  maximum, 50,  minimum,  38.  Rainfall for same period, 12.42.  VOL. 2���������NO. 8  BELLA COOLA, B. C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8,  1913.  $1.00 a Year  V  Surveyors Homeward-  Bound  Motion-Pictures of Interior  Mr. G. H. Hensman; of the firm  of Sweetman & Hensman, surveyors and civil engineers, passed  through here last week on his  way south.  Mr. Hensman and party were  engaged in land surveying in  various parts of the interior for  the last five months, among other  places visited being Clinton, Big  Bar Country, Chilcotin, Chilanco  River, Tatlayoco Lake, Kleena  Kleene and Salmon River.  From the latter place Mr. Hensman proceeded to Bella Coola  with three of his assistants, the  main party going out by way of  Ashcroft.  Mr. Hensman's party were accompanied by a moving-picture  operator who succeeded in obtaining several extremely interesting scenes throughout the interior.  The moving-picture operator  is now in the Upper Valley where  he will endeavor to get a picture  of one of the famous large grizzly bears for which that country  is notorious.   :  New Doctor for Bella Coola  B.C. St  Prince Rupert,   Nov.  5.���������Dr.  E. B. Fisher of this city has been  ^appointed resident doctor at Bella Coola and has left for his new  post.  The vacancy was caused by the  resignation of Dr. Cavanagh who  for the past two years has been  in charge of the hospital at that  place.  App<  New Salmon Appears  in the Skeena River  iption  >.!,.-.  riclo'"  t>  SmitherS, Nov. 5.���������What is believed to be a new species of  salmon-has appeared in the Skeena niter this season, and fishermen are puzzled at the .strange  fish. It has never been seen before either in the Skeena or any  other British Columbia river.  In appearance the new salmon  resembles both the Sockeye and  the Humpback, being described  as a cross between the two. Its  markings seem to include characteristic spots and colorings of  both fish and the dorsal fin, while  distinct from either of these  species, appears to be a modification of both.  The new salmon is of. large  siz.e and is a splendid food fish,  having rich pink flesh, such as  makes the Sockeye so highly  prized by canners. The run of  this strange and, so far as known,  entirely new species, has been  large this season, and fishermen  j-viU..watch with interest for its  reappearance next summer.  Sunday moving-picture shows  are forbidden in Edmonton by a  recent order-in-council.  Abuse of Hospitality  Charged to Premier  Eastern Press Declares Sir Richard  McBride Owes Canadian Club  An Apology  Ottawa,---The action of Sir  Richard McBride in speaking on  the naval question at the Canadian Club luncheon here, has  drawn the following criticisms,  from the Free Press:  "Premier McBride abused the  hospitality of his hosts. He took  advantage of a non-partisan gathering to make capital for the political party to which he belongs.  He owes an apology to the Canadian Club of Ottawa and to those  Liberals who were compelled to  listen to him without having an  opportunity of answering back.  If he desires to reinstate himself  that apology should be forthcoming immediately."  The Morning Citizen says: "It  was somewhat unfortunate that  Sir Richard McBride did not observe a little more closely the  custom that prevails in the Canadian Club of not discussing con-  versial questions. The lack of  a more hearty reception of his  pro-naval sentiments was undoubtedly due to the fact that  the audience felt the inappropri-  ateness of his statement under  the particular auspices.''  Commends New  Zealand's Action  British Paper Lauds Policy of Local  Navies  London, Nov. 6.���������The Morning  Post, which usually represents  the extreme naval school, says:  "NewZealand launches herself  upon the blue waters of the Pacific like a true chip off the "old  block with pluck and devotion.

Clark Points to Davis as  Slayer of Constable Archibald  Victoria, Nov. 6.���������In response  to urgent invitations from the  Conservative associations of the  district and the earnest solicitation of many personal friends,  W. W. Foster, Deputy Minister  of Public Works, has agreed to  the submission of his name as  Conservative candidate at the  coming convention of the Islands  electoral district. This step involves his immediate retirement  from the executive office he now  naval point of view.  Ottawa, Nov. 6.���������The Department of Justice has delined to  "It will at first mean a certain'give an opinion on a hypothetical  loss of strength in unity, but in j ease  as  to whether   Harry  K.  the end may add more to our Imperial  strength   than   anything  which could be hoped from a cash  subsidy policy."  Decision May Be  Reconsidered  London, Nov. (5. An inlluen-  tial committee, which will ask the  British Government to reconsider  its decision in regard to the participation in the Panama-Pacific  Exposition was formed here today by the heads of great steamship, commercial and manufacturing companies.  The committee points out that,  since the government, announced  its negative decision, circumstances have changed considerably, and many of the large  manufacUirer.s hav^��������� -1 \'oV'ov'������:vV*vv������5  to take advantage of the improved tariff conditions in the  United States and send exhibits  to San Francisco.  'haw, if released in New Hampshire, would be allowed to pass  unmolested by way of Canada  in the event of his buying a  through ticket.  While no official answer has  been given it is learned that  Thaw's counsel has been advised  to tell his client not to attempt  to return to o*- through Canada.  Rescued After Ten  Years on Island  Winnipeg, Nov. 6. Hudson's  Pay officials here have just received reports from the north  that a party of ten Esquimos  were rescued from an island in  the mouth of Hudson's Bay, upon which they have been marooned for ten years.  Vancouver, Nov. 7.���������Herman  F. Clark took the witness stand  on Wednesday to give what purported to be a sweeping confession of the part he played in connection with the killing of police  constable Archibald last May.  Testifying in his own defence  the witness admitted everything  except the actual shooting of the  constable. His story corroborated every other detail of the  story which Davis told toBlackie  Seymour while both were incarcerated in jail. He also told the  story of their lawless behaviour  for some time previous to the  murder as was related by Seymour and Hamilton.  Circumstantial evidence proved  by the crown in this trial points  so strongly towards Clark and  Davis as being the two men whom  the murdered constable met on  the fatal night, that it is not at  all strange that first Davis and  then Clark broke down completely, admitting everything except the actual killing.  When it comes to the matter  of who fired the fatal shot, Clark  merely points his finger at Davis,  who in turn accuses Clark.  Liberals Win By-Election  Ottawa, Nov. 6.���������Mr. Rueben  E. Traux, the Liberal candidate,  was elected in the South Bruce  by-election last Friday by a majority of 124, defeating Mr. Wellington D. Cargill.  This is taken as an evidence  that the government's naval policy is not popular in the rural sections of the province and that  the Liberals who voted against  the party at the general election  on the reciprocity issue, are once  more back in the ranks.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  Linking Up Coast Islands  Telegraph Line in Operation on Queen  Charlotte Islands  The completion of a part of the  Queen Charlotte Islands extension, between Queen Charlotte  City and Skidegate Inlet on the  south and Tow Hill on the north,  marks a new era in the means of  communication between the different sections of Graham Island,  that are now chiefly settled by  farmers. The construction engineer was J. A. Thorne.  The line will probably be extended next year to the townsites  on the west side of Masset Inlet,  and will be connected up by cable  with the telephone line on Moresby Island, also constructed last  summer.  The SS. Camosun arrived in  port on Sunday morning at about  10 a.m. bringing the following  passengers: Mrs. F. Cavanagh,  Mrs. George Young and three  sons, Mrs. Metzyll and child,  Miss Pecknold, Messrs J. W.  Macfarlane, F. Broughton, W.  Metzyll, Doctors W. E. Bavis  and E. B. Fisher.  Miss Pecknold is the new  teacher at the Lower Bella Coola  School, taking the place of Mr.  W. H. Mackay who recently resigned.  Doctors W. E. Bavis and, E.  B. Fisher are looking into the  prospects offered by the vacancy  of the post of local resident physician, occasioned by the recent  resignation of Dr. F. Cavanagh.  Dr. Bavis has practiced four  years in the province, being lately employed at the construction  works of the B. C. Electric Company at Lake Bunson.  Dr. Fisher is a recent arrival  in the province. A graduate of  Toronto University, and having  studied three years atEdinburgh.  Dr. Fisher has high qualifications  having held the important post  of chief health officer and secretary of the provincial board of  health in New Brunswick. This  position he only resigned last fall,  since which time he has been  professionally engaged in Mexico.  Constable F. Broughton made  the round trip pickingup witnesses in connection with the Kimsquit shooting case which is to be  heard at the present assizes at  Vancouver.  The outgoing passengers by the  Camosun included. Messrs F. M.  Britton, M. P. McDonald, G. H.  Hensman, Venables and Greene.  Mr. Britton who has been negotiating with the settlers regarding a right-of-way for the  Pacific & Hudson Bay Railway,  expressed himself as well pleased  with the arrangements up to  date, which he described as distinctly encouraging.  SS. Capilano called at this port  on Tuesday last with a consignment of gasoline, taking away a  load of salmon from the cannery.

T. C. Colwell, B. A., Pastor  Salloomt Valley  Six new preemptions have been  taken in the upper part of the  valley, about ten miles from  Hagensborg. Four of these have  been preempted by the Colbprne  brothers, all loyal supporters of  the "Emerald Isle."  These brothers have taken  time by the forelock and already  have an orchard of 100 trees. ^  The other two are being held  by the Langill brothers, eastern  Canadians.  Mrs. Langill, the wife of one  of the brothers, with their two  children are spending the winter  in the valley. :;  Mr. Schrader is also spending  the winter in this settlement  hunting and trapping.  Supplies have to be back-packed  a distance of from six to eight  miles.  With a little expense the frail  up the valley could be opened up  as it was formerly used as a pack  trail en route to a copper claim.  Firvale  (FROM OUR RESIDENT CORRESPONDENT)  Some difficulty has been experienced with the road at mud  bay, three miles above Firvale  post office. Owing to the peculiar conditions at this point; where  the river makes a short turn,  bearing heavily against the substratum of the north bank; the  construction of a road that will  be permanent, is, perhaps, one  of the most difficult in the lower  end of the valley.  The vicinity now has a new  settler in the person of Mr.  Whitehead. Mr. Whitehead .is  making preparations for a permanent home on his preemption  near here.  The yacht Verada, C. A. Rains- W. I.

Bowser on the  ;    Defensive  criticized the government's action in withholding from sale all  unsold lots in the Bella Coola  townsite. Mr. Ross replying  through the Victoria Colonist  said: "To comply with the request voiced so energetically by'  the Courier, would be to permit  speculators to grab the preferable lots in the townsite at a low  price presumably, LEAVING  THE LESS DESIRABLE PROPERTIES IN THE HANDS OF  'THE GOVERNMENT."  Should not this apply equally  well to the agricultural lands of  the province?  Mr. Ross (or .,the Colonist)  termed the government's action  in regard to the Bella Coola town  lots "A check to speculation."  Mr. Bowser has repeatedly  avowed that the speculator must  be given a chance, and no one  can now say that he has not had  all the chance necessary in order  to tie up the best lands of the  province indefinitely, and in this  he has succeeded.  What of the vast areas which,  according to the Attorney-General, are still available for settlement?  Following the line of Mr. Ross'  argument of a year ago, we are  perfectly justified in believing  that these are the LESS DESIRABLE PROPERTIES left IN  THE HANDS OF THE GOVERNMENT, and further "we  know beyond a shadow of  doubt that this is exactly the  case.  A Challenge  Mr. Maxwell Smith addressing  a large gathering of electors at  Vancouver on the 28th ulto., remarked that the statement of Mr.  Bowser in regard to the land  policy of the provincial government, had taken his breath away.  "He had the effrontery to make  this statement," said Mr. Smith,  "that in  addition to the lands  that were already occupied, that  the; provincial government had  reserved  for   pre-emption  purposes to bona-fide settlers, upwards of a hundred million acres  of land.    I may excuse him for  handling the truth carelessly, but  I can hardly excuse him'for deliberately lying to thepublic, and  that is what he did on that occasion.  "I want to make this state-i  ment," continued the speaker,  "that in the. province, of British  Columbia I do not believe there  is 100,000 acres of agricultural  land not occupied, and I include  the Peace River district in that.  I want to challenge Mr. Bowser  and the whole McBride government to produce that hundred  million acres of land. They cannot do it."  . If so, then there were only  three Conservatives at Mr. Wm.  Manson's recent meeting at  Hagensborg.  Saturday, Novemler 81 j^ ������  In offering his defence to the  criticisms of Mr. Brewster re-,  garding the government's land  settlement1 policy, the Hon. W.  J. Bowser makes some startling  statements. ���������  He assured his audience, composed wholly of his own supporters that, "with the exception  of a very small area at the coast,  there; are virtually no lands at  all for sale to the speculator."  : We believe this to be true, inasmuch as all the valuable lands  contiguous to projected railway  routes haye^already passed into  the hands of speculators, leaving  only.a small area at the coast as  at all likely to be easily accessible in the near future.  Mr.   Bowser   endeavored   to  make a point of the fact that  1,500,000 acresof provincial lands  has been surveyed by the government'and was being held for  ,the benefit of homesteaders, at  $2 per acre, in addition to which,  he state,d, there are also 103,0007-  ,J)Q0 < acres  of  unsurveyed land  -available*for settlement.  "���������'���������This may also be true.   But,  'where is it?   What is it worth  from an agricultural standpoint?  Land speculation has been going on for a good many years;  ��������� long before there were any such  things as Pre-emption Reserves.  Is it natural to suppose that the  expert cruisers of these speculators, with the whole field before  them, would choose any but the  ���������,    choicest   and   most   accessible  lands?  Is it natural to suppose that  with absolutely no restriction  placed upon them, these cruisers  or,&takers,in the employ of the  speculators -would omit to stake  anything of value lying in close  proximity to any projected railroad? No, it is not natural; nor  did they pass such lands by.  What does Hon. W. Ross think  about this?  Just a year ago, the Courier  When Mr. Bowser ~ recently  stated that the' criticisms of the  government come only'from Liberals, whom he is pleased to,call  soreheads, he is stating something which he. ought to know,  and certainly must know, to be  untrue. *  o     c    o    o    o  Will-.Mr. Bowser dare to call  the members of.the Vancouver  No; Mr. Bowser is mistaken, | j  and he must soon  realize that  those whom he is pleased to call  "soreheads" include many loyal  Conservatives, who have stood  by the government as long as  their consciences would permit,  and are only now being driven  from the party by the knowledge  that the government is no longer  worthy the support of; honest  men,'whose only desire is for the  welfare of the province.  ��������� Members of the Imperial parliament when ���������.. touring Canada  have often been rebuked for introducing party politics when  addressing the Canadian Club.  Now we have Sir Richard McBride guilty of the same offence.  Sir Richard feels no shame in  advocating now, that which two  years ago he condemned in r.o  uncertain terms: a naval policy  of contribution.  British Columbia's share in  Chinese poll-tax is $500,000 annually.  Other provinces are protesting,  as many-Chinese entering Canada through B. C. take up residence in other provinces.  They suggest that the province  of destination should be the governing factor, which seems only  reasonable.  But how about' 'better terms?"

Sir���������At an open Conservative  meeting held at Hagensborg on  October 2nd, a resolution calling  for the abandoning of the projected new road on the north  side of the Bella Coola river, in  favor of the old road and crossing at the Nootsatsum river was  fully dealt with.    -*������������������  At the suggestion of Mr. W.  Manson, M.P.P., who was present at "the meeting, this matter  was laid over until a delegation  of the settlers examined.the projected new route, Mr. Manson  promising to then give their decision earnest consideration, the  local road superintendent also declaring that the wishes of the  people should be respected.  The following will inform the  public of the work done by a  representative delegation of those  settlers most concerned in this  matter, and the decision arrived  at in the subsequent meeting.  On October 29th, a party of  settlers from the Nootsatsum,  Salloomtand Firvale settlements  started out. from Mr.. A. Hammer's ranch about 1 p.m. for an  inspection of the projected north |  road.    After twenty-seven min-!  utes walk through open, timbered  and l,evel country we came to the  Bella Coola river at the site of!  the   propoposed    new   bridge.  Here we crossed the river and  passing along a heavily timbered  steep sidehill which showed signs  of seepage, at one place running  water   being   encountered,   we  Came to the first rock bluff jutting out into the river.   Following  along the face of this bluff, con-  ti n u'ally ascen d i n g,  w e reached  the highest point on,"the road,  about ,75 feet above the river.  This, the first piece of required  rock-work encountered is  from  400 to 500 feet long.  Leaving the highest point we  passed along a sidehill, composed  of rocks and dirt, exposed to the  sun and wind foraboutone half-  mile where more seepage is met  with.  Next, another very steep sidehill of solid rock, where the natural lay of the rock will necessitate some very  sharp  angles,  'which cannot be avoided.   This  continues fur some 400 feet.  A little more dirt sidehill, and  then we came out on a heavily  timbered . fiat ; which  continued  , until we'arrived at the present  jSalloomt road.  Crossing the bridges over the  JSalloomt   river,    (which  shows  signs of rough usage by there-  cent flood,) the main Bella Cools  river and the branch of the riv?r  by Hagensborg store, we concluded our inspection.  t At 7:30 p.m. the settlers til  in large numbers at the Cokq  Hall, Mr. P.

B^Bhe Nootsatsum  river, a  wing  dam is required, long enough ai������  strong enough to confine the  water in one channel; then with  a bridge of two or-even one span  of 150 feet, high enough to allow  drift logs to pass under, there  will be no more trouble in this  regard.  There has never been a  fair-  test made in bridging the Nootsatsum river.    As was 'argued in  the meeting; build the same class  of bridge over either the Bella  Coola or Necleetsconnay rivers,  as that washed out at Nootsatsum, and how long would it last; \  and it is doubtful if the Noot-I  sat'sum ever gets'wilder than the  Necleetsconnay.  Residents', of the townsite,  what do you think about it?  We have complied with Mr.  Manson's suggestions to the let-  tier. We now wait to see if the  wishes of the people are to be  respected.��������� Yours, etc!  F. A. JOHNSON.  Hagensborg.

"Thepassage of this infamous  (home rule) bill will ruin Ireland"  says.Wm. Maguire.jof Belfast, to  Toronto sympathizers. That is  whaHs said of every important  Liberal measure. The budget of  1909 was going to drive capital  out of England and ruin the  country. It hasn't driven out a  single 'duke. England is prospering on the budget, as Ireland  will on self-government.  Tariff taxation on the ordinary  necessities of life is the most indefensible form of class legislation. Food taxes spell both hardship and injustice for the great  mass of the people. In this wonderful productive country, which  grows vast quantities of food,  the cost of living has made more  alarming advances than anywhere-else in the world. The  first sure step toward fair play  and normal living conditions lies  in a courageous and righteous  revision of the tariff.���������St. John,  N. B., Telegraph.  HUGHES BROS.
