The first news of gold on the  Skowquiltz River was brought  to Bella Coola by the Brothers  Hendricks, who are old time prospectors and hunters on this Northern coast.  The rich dirt which they  brought with them and the description of the lay of the land,  soon attracted the attention of  other local prospectors, with the  result that a large party was  soon off to the scene of the find,  equipped with all implements to  make a preliminary prospect of  the country.  According to accounts received  the scene of the discovery lies at  a  |thehead of the Skowquiltz River | on  hami  0f $3,102.85.

Rush Expected Next Spring���������Good Route From Bella Coola  With the opening of spring next year, there is certain to be a  rush into the district, thorough prospecting will be undertaken,  and there is little doubt that the true extent and wealth of the  district will be fairly determined before the close of the season.

Holland.  E. Gyllenspitz and R. A. Tee-  bay who have been engaged in  work on the Kimsquit trail, returned to town on Monday last.  Mr. Gyllenspitz states that the  trail from Alcatcho to Kimsquit  is now in gcod shape up to twenty-  five miles frcm the latter place.  During their work these gentlemen fell in with Mr. R. P. Bishop  and party, who have been engaged in running the 53rd parallel of latitude, and tying up all  adjacent lands.  Mr. Bishop is nearing the completion of his season's work and  expects to leave the ccuntiy by  way of Kimsnuit, which place he  proposes to reach by November  7th, when he will proceed south  by the steamer Venture.

Already American capitalists,  who have visited the place, have  secured all   the   land   on  tidewater at the river mouth, and  arrangements  are   being   made  for the building of a wharf and  general store, and the bringing  in of the most approved hydraulic appliances when serious work  will be commenced at once.  The proximity of the strike to  salt water, and the fact of it being so easily accessible should  commend it to those prospectors  who are willing to take the  chance and go see for themselves.  Several old Yukon minors are  amongst those already interested  and when these sourdoughs get  enthused there is generally some  very good reason.  ew Postal Rate in Force  London, Oct. 11.

The Sin of Omission  It would appear from the editorial columns of the Victoria  Colonist, dealing.with Mr. Brewster's recent speech in Vancouver, that no fault could be found  in-anything that Mr. Brewster  said on that occasion.  At anyrate the only criticism  that the Colonist seems prepared  to offer ��������� and it was in duty  bound to criticise���������is in regard  to what Mr. Brewster might have  said, but didn't.  The omission that the Colonist  is so concerned about, is that the  Provincial Liberal leader failed  to dwell upon the great .prosperity that the province had enjoyed under the McBride administration, and neglected to make  it plain that everything that had  happened was entirely due to  that wise administration.  What of this boasted prosperity? True the population of our  cities has increased by leaps  and bounds, until a social condition has obtained which has  brought, for Vancouver particularly, a very unenviable reputation throughout the Dominion.  There has been considerable  railroad development; but at  what cost to the province?  Some roads and bridges have  been built; but again, at what  cost?  As regards the northern part  of the province, it is not unfair,  but only just, to say that practically the only development that  has occurred and is occurring is  due to the construction of the  Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, the  credit for which we decline to  accord to the McBride administration.  We have always contended that  the only true basis of permanent  prosperity in this country, is the  agricultural industry.  The government has filled the  treasury by parting with our  agricultural lands in such a way  as to absolutely prohibit settlement; nor has it made any effort  to attract that very class of settlement so urgently needed. Rather  has it concerned itself;almost  solely with speculating in the  natural resources of the country;  until now we lintt public money  being spent to build roads and  bridges, the great effect of which  will be to further increase the  value of the lands held by speculators.  We do not think Mr. Brewster  omitted anything of much importance, except that it would  have been interesting���������from a  Liberal standpoint���������to have  heard him tell how the treasury  had been filled, and a few instances of how the money was being  spent to fool the people into supporting the most speculative,  autocratic and corrupt government in the history of Canada.  o     o     o     o     o  The Colonistremarks that there  are several things which Mr.  Brewster does not appear to have  grasped.  Talking about grasping; perhaps the Colonist will tell us who  grasped the$45,000 in connection  with the Songhees Reserve.  Some grasp that.  We are proud to know-that Mr.  Brewster is no grasper.  Owens, . Manson, McMullin,  Macfarlane and Company who  are running the jail business,  will not be able to furnish Bella  Coola with a lock-up on contract  time.  that we hesitated to reply until  we had somewhat recovered.  o     o     o     o     o  Listen, Mr. Road Boss. There  is not a mile of road in the valley  that would hold heavy traffic,  and the road for the most part  is the same as laid out, cleared  and used- by the settlers years  before you ever saw Bella Coola.  You have built no road because  not having the ability, you cannot. We believe your foremen  could but you would not let them.  o     o     o     o     o  Tell us, Mr. Road Boss. We  are informed that this year you  succeeded in building one and a  half miles of road in the Upper  Valley at a cost of $9,000.  o     o     o   ��������� o     o  Is this correct? We hear also  that you did some slashing of  right-of-way which is'not to be  used.   Is this so? ��������� ������  vince, that can only trend to the  lasting benefit of such districts  as were represented.  , o    o    o     o     o  ��������� Bella Coola's numerous successes at the above mentioned exhibition should do much towards  assisting the local farmers in obtaining wider markets and better  transport facilities.  o    o    o     o     o  The local fair held at Hagensborg was even a greater success  than usual, the various exhibits,  although smaller in quantity than  in previous years, being of an  excellent quality.  I  &"*  Interested  AND  High  Mr. Manson on the occasion of  his recent visit, to this place,  carefully refrained from explaining how the money intended for  roads and bridges was being  wasted by. an officious and incompetent road boss.  - He, as usual; talked larger and  even larger appropriations, and  so hoped to gull the settlers into  insensibility regarding the incessant extravagant and -reckless  expenditures.  Last Saturday, court was held  in the constable's office with seating accommodation for five.  Some witnesses and the general  public were permitted to lean  against the outside of the counter, packed into a space of about  8x5 feet. Good enough for Bella Coola.  We feel inclined to inform Mr.  Manson that the time for this  kind of thing is past and gone..  The Conservative party in Bella Coola is completely disrupted,  and all on account of JAr. Man-  son's toleration of the road boss.  The Courier does not consider,  however, that sufficient interest  is taken in these exhibitions.  The exceedingly small exhibit  sent to Prince Rupert, repre^-  senting as.it did the efforts of  only three or four men, was in  nowise creditable to the valley as  a whole, and although the exhibit met with excellent success,  the credit is due entirely to those  three or four persons, and not,  as it should have been, to the  farmers as a body represented  in the Bella' Coola Farmers' Institute.  "������" . 'O     o      o     o  The Courier believes that, railroad or no railroad, the future  prosperity of Bella Coola depends  greatly upon our farmers, and  urges that:in future greater interest should be taken, and no  opportunity of "advertising the  advantages of the valley as an  agricultural and horticultural  district should again be lightly  passed over.  -GRAL)L*      We are the largegt  manufacturers 0f  *\ STERLING SILVER  f     WARE in Canada.

This .startling   announcement  so completely flabbergasted us,  If Mr. Manson wants Bella  Coola to be converted into a Liberal stronghold, all he has to do  is to let things go on as they are.  But this community must be prepared to suffer in the meantime.  o     o     o     o_    o  The farmers of the valley are  busily engaged getting in their  root crops, which from reports  received are generally of first-  class quality.  o     o     o     o     o  The recent Prince Rupert exhibition should give an impetus  to the agricultural industry in  this Northern part of the pro-  German Peril Dead  , Emergency Forgotten and Emergency  Fleet Scattered to Four Seas.  Germany has within the last  few weeks voluntarily changed  her tariff laws so as to admit  Great Britain and all her colonies  to trade with the Fatherland under the "most favored nation"  clause. Great Britain almost on  the same day disbanded a large  part of the enormous fleet she  has for several years kept cruising on the North Sea, almost  within gun shot of the German  fleet and coast .defences as a perpetual menace to the Kaiser.  The British admiralty has deci  ded to send 8 battleships, 3 bat-1  tie-cruisers, 8 armored cruisers J  and 8 light cruisers to the.Medi-;  terranean, infinitely the most  powerful armada that has ever  sailed the Mediterranean. At  the same time Great Britain is  sending a fleet of 4 first-class  armored vessels to Bermuda as  a West Atlantic fleet.  Rt. Hon. Winston Churchill has  evidently accelerated the demise  of Mr. Borden's famous emergency and has made it syncron-  ize with the handing out of the  commercial olive branch by the  j German government.
