In the afternoon great  interest and keen competition  was evinced in the exhibition of  farm products, cut flowers, and  needlework, which was conducted under the auspices of the Bella Goola Agricultural Association.  Appropriate addrcf-scs were delivered by Messrs. S. Le C. Grant  and B. B. Haugan, both of whom  spoke of the urgent need of increased agricultural production  in the province, and of the great  advantages the farmer had over  the less fortunate city-dweller.  The exhibits were not as numerous as on previous occasions, but  showed that the quality of the  produce raided in the valley is  steadily improving.  In the evening a grand conceit  was held in the hall, which was  filled almost to its capacity. The  program was of an exceptionally  high order and indeed it would  be invidious to single cut any of'  the artists for special  men.ion  where all  acquitted themselves  so  excellently.

Just twenty years ago on the  30th of October the first Norwegian colonists landed at Bella  Coola. Great changes have taken,  place in the valley since then,  and many of those hardy pioneers  have passed to the great beyond.  Those who remain are now reaping the benefits of the hardships  and toil of the early days, and  it is only fitting that they should  celebrate the anniversary of their  landing.  This celebration is recognized  as an annual event of considerable significance hereabouts, and  on this occasion every effort was  made by those in charge of the  arrangements to make the day  one long to be remembered.    In  the  forenoon  large numbers of  the old-time settlers and others  gathered  at   the   Colony   Hall,  Hagensborg,   when   old   experiences were retold and many interesting incidents brought to remembrance.      Keen enthusiasm  was evoked by the addresses by  Messrs. P. Lauritson and  B.  B.  Haugan, the latter dealing with  the earlv history of the Norwe-  Belgian Relief Fund.

The temper displayed by the  German nation, from highest to  - lowest, during, these- tragic few  months whilst being amazing, is  from our point.of view encouraging. It is not the tempe'r of victory.        /   ���������,  "Can you wonder," Germans  may say, "that we resent, the  abuse showered onus for actions  which'we regard as military ne-  i r *   ��������� , ������������������  cessities/and entirely consonant  with the rough justice of war?"  No, that, is not very surprising.  The temper to which we refer is  something entirely different. It  is the temper which manifested  itself before an uncivil word had  been spoken by us, in the attack  on the British embassy in Berlin,  and in the Kaiser's pettish renunciation of his British honors.  It has continued to manifest itself in a hundred different ways  ever since, quite apart from  journalistic recrimination. It  arises from the fact, that for  some inscrutable reason, Germany considers herself specially  injured and outraged by Britain's  adherence to her plighted word.  This astonishing frame of mind  shows that somehow or other she  has got ou't of touch with reality;  and that is a perilous condition,  in which to go to war.  What in the name of wonder  did she expect? She knew that  we were parties (along with herself) to a personal guarantee of  the neutrality of Belgium. She  knew that strong ties both of  sentiment and interest bound us  to France. She had announced  to us for years, through the  mouths of her most authoritative  professors and publicists, her  very amicable intention of crushing us at the earliest opportunity,  and wresting from us the Colonial Empire which we had "stolen"  in various parts of the world at  a time when circumstances compelled her to confine her stealing  within the limits of Europe.  Hear what Bernhardi, a prominent soldier-politician wrote,  entirely unrebuked, and then let  us ask ourselves the question,,  was it likely that we should  break our word to Belgium and  desert France in her need, merely to have to face Germany single  handed when she had gobbled  up everbody else.  Bernhardi says, "A pacific  agreement with England is a  will-o'-the-wisp which no serious  German statesman would trouble  to follow. We must square accounts with France ..." France  must be so completely crushed  that she can never .again come  across our path."  Yet she chooses ,to consider  herself injured, and indeed almost betrayed, when she is  brought face to face with the  fact that Britain is true to her  obligations.   '  Judging by her outbursts of  temper, she would seem to think  that Britain had for years been  craftily deluding her into the  belief that the British were a  nation of, rascals and fools;  whereas, it was Germany herself  that had conceived and openly  announced that, erroneous idea,  in spite'of repeated protests on  the part of- Great Britain.  " - o     o     o     o     ������  .   . Back to the Land.  ���������_ "The present war has shown  tfhe need o������, increased agricultural-production throughout the  British Empire, and in this .regard much is expected from Canada. It is plainly the duty of  every province in the Dominion  to exert its utmost endeavor to  increase its farming population,  by ��������� offering every reasonable  facility*to the intending settler.  We'have long ago pointed out  that many city-dwellers, desirous,  of going "back to the land" are  prevented from so doing by lack  of funds: Time after time there  have appeared, in the press letters from such people explaining  their difficulties.    .,  British Columbia is not doing  her duty. With millions of acres  of arable land laying unoccupied  (according to the statements of  responsible ministers of the  crown) we are still importing  millions of dollars worth of foodstuffs which should be, and could  be, produced in the province.  British Columbia is unable today to give any assistance to the  Motherland in the way of agricultural products.  The province has already paid  enormous sums for railway transportation, but these railways  are as yet a liability rather than  an asset. These railway companies are sending loaded cars  west and hauling them back  empty* and just as long as this  is allowed to continue the people  of this province will have to pay  double transportation charges.  These railways instead of reducing the cost of living are increasing it, and the reason is because they have no agricultural  population to depend on. .  This'is the fault of an inefficient Department of Lands.  Today, we import butter from  New Zealand and eggs from  China. What is the cause of  this ? Simply because we do not  produce sufficient for our own  consumption. Why? Because,  while our cities are overcrowded  our agricultural lands are unoccupied. The government of the  province must recognize t'heir  responsibility in this regard.  They have- had Royal Commissions investigating the matter,  but so far nothing has been done.  Nothing is being done to secure  for British Columbia her share  of what will undoubtedly be the  greatest influx of bonafide settlers the Dominion has ever experienced.  Thes"e immigrants will certainly need assistance from the government. Clearing land in this  province is a slow and expensive  task, and cannot be attempted  by the man of small means unless  he is assured a living for the first  two or three years until his land  can be made productive.  The government has trifled  with [this important matter already too long, and.it is high  time that the.land department  was brought to a state of reasonable efficiency, and that land  laws were enacted which would  make it at least possible for the  man of small means, the average  man, to get "back to'the land."  "Before the leaves fall, we  shall all be back in the dear  Fatherland," said the Kaiser.  There are two ways of construing  this which must please those on  both sides.  VSn Barnstorff S tuff.  Count von Bernstorff, the amiable German ambassador to the  United States, is seeking information as regards the attitude of  the United States in the event  of the landing of German troops  in Canada. His contention is  that as Canada, as part of the  British'Empire, is at war with  Germany and is . dispatching  troops for service in Europe,  Germany is entitled to land forces  at convenient places in Canada  in. spite of the Monroe Doctrine.  Thus far, the Count is correct.  The Monroe Doctrine could not  be interpreted as preventing the  temporary occupation of Canadian territory by German forces.  Nor is there any international  law to prevent the Kaiser from  sending daily thousands of his  troops to either of two places  not mentioned on the map of the  world.,  If the Kaiser wants to send  troops to Canada, he may do so,  always providing that he can  procure the means. . But we  would remind Count von Bernstorff that our immigration laws  are very strict in regard to undesirables. Again, we would ask  him to recollect that we are a  law-abiding people and our jail  accommodation would probably  be inadequate for the rendering  of proper hospitality.  'What is the matter with the  Count. Can it really be that, in  anticipation of the appropriation  of Germany by France and Russia, lie intends to arrange that  one of the conditions of peace  shall be the migration of Germany's population to Canada.  If on the other hand he thinks  he can raise a scare among us  by any such palpable "hot-air",  he little knows the Canadian  people.  Ypres Great Once.  Doubtless there are millions  and millions of people to whom  the name of the little Belgian  town of Ypres, recently occupied  by Franco-British forces and  around which the Allies and Germans are now battling furiously,  comes as an absolute stranger  and. without significance, the  Philadelphia Record suggests in  -pointing to the important past  of the place.

'i  In connection with the case of  Rex vs. Lee and Gloiser, who are  charged with having fraudulently obtained money through the  sale of. land which was not, as  alleged, as represented, s'ome interesting evidence was afforded  by Mr. R. A. Renwick, deputy-  minister of lands. He referred  to the records of his department  to show that the land sold to the  would-be settlers in this case  was described as No. 2. No. 1  is land which can be cultivated  to advantage, while No. 2 is all  other land, according to Mr.  Renwick. The land in question  is mostly No. 2 land, very little  being classed as No. 1. He admitted that a booklet which was  shown to him, giving glowing  descriptions of the land and the  possibilities, had been issued by  the government and that the  government stood sponsor for  its validity.  Settlers, called as witnesses,  said the land was mostly stoney  and unfit for cultivation.  Lee and Cloiser are brought to  justice for an alleged misrepresentation of the land they were  selling. Yet it seems they were  assisted in this alleged work, of  misrepresentation by the government. Is not the government  equally guilty with them?  The Splendour of Belgium.  i  The action of Belgium gives  her a claim on something beyond  pity or even gratitude���������a claim  on our intellectual honor beyond  anything that even suffering  could extort. She had faith in  our policy almost before we had  one. She answered for our  truth and virtue {before we answered ourselves. For one awful  hour she found herself alone in  Europe; and yet-she-answered  for Europe. And she answered  right. In that enormous circle  of silence the first shot from  Liege was the answer of Christendom. That little country, with  its pattern of bright fields as  tidy as a chess board, with its  medley of mediaeval cities as  carved and quaint as the chessmen, found somewhere in itself,  and by itself, the voice that is  the voice of two thousand years���������  Through me no friend shall meet  his doom;  Here, while I live,'no foe finds  room.  ���������Mr.  G.

Fur Sales Agency  German Navy's Serious Loss.  The British navy has sunk one-  eleventh of the German flotilla  of destroyers thus far in the war,  a serious loss when one considers  the part played by these vessels.  ] i 1  ������  1���������lj  1 1  \JL7HAT person so happy and contented as the prosperous farmer?  \X7HAT person so independent?  \\THAT ambition more noble than to  be a producer of   the necessaries  of life?  Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  THE REASONS for this enviable condi-  dition of affairs are obvious to anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.  i���������i  B  o><  I  a  ���������<H  To Land Seekers, Campers,  Prospectors, Etc.

A week or  two ' ago an appear was made  through the columns of this  paper to the local farmers to contribute what produce they could  spare towards the Belgian relief  fund. The response has been  most gratifying. Up to time of  going to press, six tons of "farm  produce has been donated, in addition to cash donations to the  amount of over $50, and a large  case of dry goods from .Mr. M.  B. Christenson, the well known  merchant-of Hagensborg. ,  Efforts are being made to ship  the goods to the Belgian Consul  at Victoria, by tomorrow's boat.  Bella Coola, foT a small community, has done .exceedingly  well. Already" close to $300 has  been collected and sent to the  Red Cross Society at Vancouver,  while the London Daily Mail tobacco fund- has also received  very generous support.  . It is hoped the produce will  reach Victoria in good order,  when it will be sure to bring a  high price on account of its excellent quality.   '  The Courier thanks the settlers  throughout the  valley  for   the  ready and generous response to  our appeal on behalf of that most  worthy cause, the Belgian Relief  Fund.  A contemporary says: "By  common consent the squadron  known as Elliott's Horse (which  has lately left for Europe) is  about the finest and sturdiest set  of men ever gathered together  for military purposes in Victoria."  This squadron includes two  men from Bella Coola, viz: P. J.  Kenyon, late of the Rhodesian  regiment, who has already seen  considerable active service (his  decorations consist of the Mata-  bele medal and the Queen's and  King's South African medals,)  and Robert- Lowe, late of the  Royal Horse Guards.  ������      Sunday School  Church Service  10:45 a.m.  7:30 p. nv  .
