Carlsen met at the wharf on Sunday night to bid good-bye to him  and his family, who are taking  up their residence in Everett,  Washington.  Mr. Carlsen was 'one of the  earliest settlers in Bella Coola,  being among the few colonists  who,settled the Valley just  eighteen years ago.  For some twelve years past he  has filled the positions of provincial constable, deputy' mining  recorder and revenue tax collector, also holding a commission as  Justice of the Peace.  For years a strong conservative  and ardent supporter of the McBride party, Mr. Carlsen enjoyed  the good will of the latter, but  the time arriving when he could  no longer conscicntously do so,  he was without apparent rhyme  or reason relieved of his position.  That he will be missed amongst  as, is a very mild way' of putting  it, but we know that besides bettering his position, he is going  among friends and relatives, and  our loss is their gain.  The "Courier" desires to tender to Mr. and Mrs Carlsen and  family, its best wishes for the  future, and trust that any regrets  they may feel at leaving Bella  Coola will be quickly dispelled by  happiness and prosperity in their  new home.   S. S. Chelohsin, one day late,  docked here at midnight on Sunday.  , Among the passengers for this  port were Mrs Fougner and boy,  Mr. and Mrs McNair and Miss  Robertson, Miss Robinson, Indian  constable Chas. Tucker and Capt.  Conner chief officer of the "Venture" who will spend a week's  vacation here.  Another Bear Hors-de-Gombat.  This time it has fallen to the  lot of Mr. W. F. Rowland to display his prowess as a hunter by  killing an enormous grizzly.  Mr. Rowland's was out after  goat and came on Mr. Bruin, who  seemed to be in an ugly mood.  An angry growl, a rush, a shot,  and another grizzly was ruled out  of order. ,_  Farmers Oien and Indrevick  came to town this week. The  former showed his superior judgment by calling at this office and  subscribing to the Courier.  ,  . ^j  In. regard to Mr. M. W.

v    " The "Courier", has' made
its appearance up here, and 'when
we get it (which, unfortunately,
does not happen often and regularly, due-to the inadequate P. 0.
service,) is very welcome as a
means to keep us in touch with
the rest of the valley settlers.
Personally, I think the youngster is doing remarkably well
considering its tender age,rand if
only it could keep free from personalities and local squabbles it
would be very, very good': But
then, I suppose you must have
these diversions down at your
end, same as the Central Americans need a revolution now and
then, just to keep the blood in
good order. Up here we really
have no time to bother with such
little things, as, beside the additional work required to pack
from so far all 0 f our living ne
cessities, the principal topic for
conversation, our whole aim and
aspiration,.is concentrated in one
single but very important item:
Most of you while blithely
and merrily driving your teams
at your end of the valley, do not
wholly realize the inconveniences
and the hardships to which we up
here are subjected.' Of course I
have heard many complaining
about the existing road and its
deficiences, this is only natural,
human nature never being satisfied with what it has; nevertheless I should like to point out to
^oiese* good ,people that half a
loaf is better than no bread, and
that your ,hajf loaf is a reasonably" good one. , t
We have been waiting, waiting,
oh! for such long years for the
Road to"get'up here, and���not-
withstanding the increased number of settlers, the' passing of
years;, the many and. repeated
appeals to the '.'powers that be,"
���we are still waitin g. The Road,
during my'seven years stay in
this Valley/^has' crept on at the
rate of one and one-third mile per
year. When, first I came here,
it was just possible, barely so, .it's
true; to'.drive to < Canoe crossing;
now you may (barring accidents),
drive ten miles further, and then
c. -
;.;'.-. the useful; "but soul im-
perilling pack-horse for "you'."
* Nobody better than the humble
writer acknowledges the right of
priority of the Lower Valley settlers to have first a good road, but
between the finished 'article (or
nearly^so) 6$ feet wide,. ditches
���' on the,side, etc., and our pack'
'trail,'of Lieut. Palmer's blessed
memory,- what a>gulf \ ���' And think
of it, we are now hot only one or
two, but about 22 settlers in the
roadless end of the valley and at
this present rate we shall be
about 20 years in getting the road
up here.   <
You have settled the Lower
Valley and have now a road, frequent postal service, telephone,
etc. We have waited patiently
our turn and we truly think it is
due now. Will not our good
friends and co-settlers, will not
the Courier help our cause?
One thing that���it seems to me
���has too often been lost sight of,
is that the ultimate end to attain
in the'completion-of this Road is
to connect, with the existing one
at Tatla Lake, thus completing
one of the branches of transportation^ through B. C, and eventually promoting traffic and trade
between the Chilcotin country
and Bella Coola. Don't you see
you would greatly benefit yourselves even whilst doing a good
action in helping us.
We are too scattered and handicapped by the lack of frequent
postal communication to be successfully heard at the right time
and on the right occasion, and
unless we all stand together and
help one another, the so much
vaunted solidity of district co-
settlers and friends, will only be
an empty name.
The evident injustice recently
committed by the postal authorities in allowing us a single month-
