-" ���' t*?y to Sella Goola, 'whose" stock-
''"' '"irton only requited a road in order
to utilize this^port for the chipping of their cattle.        ;   :
The advantages that the ability
to ship'cite! 3 by JBeila Coola would
afford to the stockmen. of Northern Chilcotm, are too obvious to
, be dealt with at any length.
When wo take .into consideration that a goodly portion 6f the
beef from that country, -after
going by way of Ashcroft to Vancouver, finds its way on to the
marksts of the- Northern Coast,
it will "be easily seen that by the
Bella Coola route, not only would
the- railroad journey be eliminated, the sea voyage reduced by
i more than  half, but the drive
over-land would also be shortened
considerably; this means that the
i loss of weight would be reduced
to a minimum.
Perhaps the people of Bella
Coola, now that the >ailroad is
practically assured, consider that
the need for a good wagon-road
through the Valley to connect
with the existing road at Tatla
Lake, is no longer as urgent as
formerly. We would remind them
that railroad or no. railroad a good
wagon-road is absolutely essential,
and'not a road terminating halfway up the valley, but a road
that will enable the settlers right
through to Tatla.Lake and beyond to use the. onjy natural outlet for their produce.   ''
Our correspondent hits the
mark when he asks the question
-"Has it struck you that, for the
past few years, "the bulk of- the
appropriation has heen^per.t in
changing a mile*or so of it (the
'road)'every year?"
��� Has Mr. Marvin cvec stopped
to think who has been responsible
for this? . '   ���
Some would perhaps suggest
the superintendantof roads. But
what of Mr. Marvin himself and
his co-settlers? who, almost'to a
man are members of the Atnarko
Conservative Clubhand as, such
have repeatedly gone to the polls
and shown their appreciation, oi
and satisfaction with the treat-
��� - /
ment they have received from the
Government and its officials. ���   -

government ? , ,Tf so,' then why
has this, state of affairs been- al-
lowed to go oh for (to quote Mr.
Marvin) /'the past few years./\-
, When'the. government, candi-

all, that he -requires to do is to
talk of a big appropriation and{

What of the $30,000 or so, supposed to be ��� spent 'this year ?
Could not a considerable portion
of this sum been spent to good
purpose in the Upper Valley ?
Maybe it was. ' But we think not,
ot else from whence arises Mr.
Marvin's complaint.  '
We have a r.oad roller lying be-
v- * , y
side the road down here, although
not a single jml,e. is -ready vfor.
rolling. This roller has been
here for the belter part of' the
summer and cannot be used-before next May or June, if then.
Would not' the cost of this roller
(estimated in the" neighborhood
of $3000) have been put to better
use in the Upper Valley. Not in
changing a mile or two of frail
(as Mr. Marvin'states has been
done in the past,) but in making
a piece of permanent' road in the
right place.
The "Courier" represents a
party in Eelja Coola who have always been strongly in favor of
connecting up with the Tatla Lake
road, but events have proved
that the party in the confidence
of the Government has not used
its influence to any extent in
that direction, and this is the
party that Mr. Marvin and hir;
co-settlers support.
Mr. Marvin wants a "thumping
big appropriation" and we t,ay it
is both badly required and richly
deserved in his locality. Bui
chould not he and his friends have
interested themselves in the past
in seeing that this system of
"tinkering" was put a stop to,
and that value was received at
anyrate for the small amounts
that were spent?
