No official confirmation.    Re-  - port says Congress will be convoked on Friday to pass vote to  mobilize Portugese troops.  Reports received in London early today say Ostend has been  captured by the Germans. These reports are uncomfirmed  from any official source but are permitted transmission by  censors. German forces meet sharp opposition on the way to  the Belgian seaport, but were allowed to enter the city un-  oyposed once they reached the outskirts. It is reported that  the Belgian army and British marines who retreated from  Antwerp, proceeded, south alon g the coast to j oin the left wing  of the Allies.  Report from Berlin states that the Germans are preparing  to lay siege to Belfort.  Austria, in a final and supreme effort to crush Servia, and  acting on orders from Germany, has concentrated on the  banks of the Drina the greatest army yet sent against Servia.  Fierce skirmishes between outposts have already taken place  and a big battle is imminent.  Tokyo despatch says arrangements are completed for all  non-combatants to leave Tsing Tau today before final assault  commences.  The fact that today is the anniversary of Jena, 108 years  ago, is expected to cause a big action on western front. Only  brief reports are being received from fighting lines,  hursday. Official despatches from Petrograd confirm earlier report that the Austro-German army has met with complete defeat with enormous losses at the hands of the Russians, who  captured thousands of prisoners. Russians also lost heavily.  ��������� Fire in government arsenal at Trieste, Austria, destroys a  dreaclnaught under construction.  Official bulletin says Belgrade is no longer in danger.

High official declared this morning that the, position  occupied by the French army is most encouraging. The right  wing of the Allied armies is showing activity, repulsing German attack and driving enemy back near Mulhausen.  Despatch from London says the position of the Allies left  wing grows more satisfactory day by day from every point of  view. The Germans have been pushed back as far as Court-  rai where they are entrenching. An attempt by the Germans  to make a dash on Calais was frustrated by the Allies near  Cassel and St. Omer, the enemy being forced across the Belgian frontier.  According to a despatch, from Copenhagen the Germans say  that owing to the failure of Russians to make progress in the  east, they intend transferring large masses of troops to the  western front for an advance on Paris. Considerable sickness  reported among German troops.  Success Attends  Allies Right Wing  Paris, October 16.-The steady  hammering which the German  right wing has sustained at the  hands of the Allies has brought  them within cannon shot of the  forts of Metz. The fighting on  this end of the line is said to  have been desperate during the  past week. French troops are  now in possession of the route  Nancy, to Metz as far as Dagny  on the Lorraine border, and are  now threatening the route from  Verdun to Metz, thus endangering the lines of communication  of the Crown Prince's armv.  Cruiser Sunk by  German Submarine  London, Oct. 16.���������The British  cruiser Huwke has been sunk in  the North Sea by a German submarine.

Enemy Within Ten  Miles of Ostend  London, Oct. 16.���������The Germans are reported as being within ten miles of Ostend. The  steamer service has been suspended. The British press says  that should the city be taken, as  is expected, that it will be of  little strategic value to them.  Berlin reports say heavy fighting  is expected in which British  dreadnaughts will be used in  defense of Ostend.  Italian Workmen Expelled  German Plans  Again Frustrated  London, Oct. 16.���������The Times  correspondent says the Germans  have abandoned the attempt to  batter,their way to Paris by way  of Roye, and are also slackening  their attack on the forts on the  heights of BremontnearRheims,  where the Allies have taken several trenches. The attempt by  the Germans to envelope Verdun  has been frustrated.  The Express correspondent  says the severe fighting which  has taken place in north-west  France during the last few days  has resulted strongly in favor of  Allies. Unless the Germans  bring up heavy reinforcements,  there is little danger of them  reaching the channel ports.  Road-superintendent R. Jennings left on the last steamer  after an inspection of the 'road  and trail as far as Constantia  Ranch, some sixty miles up the  valley.  C. Mills, representing Kelly  Douglas & Co., and C. Garrett,  of Gault Bros., left by the last  south-bound steamer after a  week's stay in the valley. Both  gentlemen were well satisfied  with their visit and report finding business quite brisk.

Land Slide at Panama  Panama, Oct. 15.��������� A serious  landslide occurred in Culebra cut  late last night, completely interrupting all traffic through the  canal.  We,draw the attention of our  readers to a letter from Mr. A.  D. Darlington of SJiushartie Bay,  which appears in this issue. Mr.  Darlington has long contributed  to the success and popularity of  the Courier by his interesting  contribution of news from Shushartie Bay and district.  As will be seen from his letter  our esteemed correspondent has  felt the call of his country and  is now on his way to do his share  in defense of our Empire.  While thanking him for his  past favors, which have indeed  been many, we take the opportunity of wishing him God-speed  and a safe return. We look forward to hearing from him from  time to time and trust that it  will not be long before we will  be able to again offer our readers  some interesting matter from  his able pen.  We are pleased to state that  our readers are not to be deprived of the popular 'Shushartie  Notes,' as another of our readers  has kindly volunteered to keep  us posted on the news from that  quarter. The Courier tenders  its thanks to this gentleman for  his timely offer.  Our readers will be pleased to  learn that the several of our  friends from this part who volunteered for active service in  the first contingent all passed  the final tests and are by now in  training in England. This is,  however, no more than we expected.  This week has seen considerable alteration to the interior of  the Courier office, the work being  done by D. C. Balfour.  The Gospel Services which  have been held in the Mackenzie  School every night during the  week have been fairly well attended considering the inclemency of the weather. The last  meeting of the series takes place  at 7:30 this evening and it is  hoped that there will be a large  turn-out to say good-bye and Godspeed to Capt. and Mrs. Stephenson and Mr. E. Whitehead, who  are leaving for Alberta where  they.will spend the winter in  evangelical work.  ���������f!^w>irif>^Trj''rMv<To^i*  (Ei|urrt| Nnfe  9  Sunday School  Church Service  10:45 a.m.  7 :30 p. m.  ?

Mr. C. H. Gibbs, representing  the Computing Scale Co. of Canada, Ltd., spent the week in  town on business with the local  merchants.  Mr. and Mrs. Martin Nygaard  came in on the last steamer and  will spend a couple of weeks in  John B. Sylvester, manager or  the Beaver Cannery, Schooner  Passage, returned to Bella Coola  by the last steamer after a successful season.  Gust. Pearson and A. Gothard,  who have been employed at the  Kimsquit Cannery durirg the  past season, returned home by  the last steamer. Mr. Pearson  returns to Kimsquit in the course  of a week or two where he will  spend the winter as caretaker of  the above mentioned cannery.  The crops throughout the valley have been abundant this year  and the question is being asked  on all sides "What are we to do  with our produce?" This is becoming a serious matter with the  farmers of this valley. There  is no doubt that Prince Rupert  would be only too glad to handle  all Bella Coola Valley can produce, but how to get the stuff to  the northern city is the question  which confronts us. If Prince  Rupert is ever to become the  great distributing centre that it  most assuredly should, it will  devolve on the Board of Trade at  that place to see to it that all  outlying places to the north of  Queen Charlotte Sound are  brought into easy communication with that city.  Following on Mr. Fred Grant  who left here a few weeks ago  to offer himself for active service, Messrs. Locke and Adams,  both of whom are well known  locally as being connected with  Mr. Robert Lowe's survey party,  have gone to offer their sword-  arm for the honor of their king  and country.

Shushartie Bay  (FROM OUR RESIDENT CORRESPONDENT)  The new cannery, completed  only a matter of four months  ago, has already justified its existence by securing over twelve  thousand cases of salmon.    Mr.  Wm. Lord, the energetic manager, intends to considerably enlarge the plant during the coming  winter, and already has men engaged on the necessary plumbing  work.    It is Mr. Lord's intention  to purchase   all   kinds of. fish  wrhich will be cared for by a large  cold storage plant in connection  with the cannery.  Mr. J. J. Skinner has had his  large power boat re-modelled by  Brown Bros, of the Shushartie  Bay saw mill, and will shortly  put her into commission in the  halibut fishing business. Should  circumstances warrant, Mr. Skinner is prepared to put several  more boats into the same business.  Messrs. H. E. Wilson and D.  Weyms have commenced halibut  fishing.  This season has been the dry-  est for many years in this district, and the settlers are all  satisfied that they have chosen  the best end of Vancouver Island.  Hard times are not noticeable  in these parts. Work has been  plentiful and the large payroll  from the new cannery has been  of great benefit to the community.  H. Idsardie, government surveyor, has with considerable  difficulty secured a new gang of  men, eleven of whom are farmers from Cape Scott.  i L  ���������S;:  ���������;i-i  &!'������������������'  i *  BELLA  COOLA COURIER  Saturday,, Ochber 1?

Some tirrie ago jn an editorial  entitled "After the War," the  Courier suggested the present  as the proper time for the earnest consideration of the question  of dealing \effectively with the  large   numbers   of   immigrants  ���������from Europe who can confidently.  be expected to come to British  Columbia   .when   peace   is proclaimed;   and   the   vast armies  now engaged are , demobilized.  ' The question of unemployment  has for some time past been a  vexed one in this province. This  winter will-Bee-the  our cities again confronted with  the question of providing employment for   hundreds if  not  thousands of men.  The system followed up to now,  hasibeen to offer relief by pro-  --��������������������������� &������������������-��������� . ...) ���������;.....      ���������������������������:���������.������������������   r    ���������.  Tiding employment on public  works to a portion of the enforced idle and, that very often  at reduced; wages.. Then we  have soup-kitchens' and other  charitable efforts, which are all  very well as far as they go. Such  measures as these only deal with  the effect arid do nothing to eliminate the cause of the deplorable  condition of unemployment.  We read much of the "Back to  the Land" ^movement. But the  question may well be asked, as  regards this province, is there  such a movement? Under present.conditions is such a movement possible?  The Vancouver Daily Province  in a recent issue says: "We call  attention to a letter signed J.  Griffin, in which the writer emphasises the point the Province  has made over and over again.  The,writer states:  "It seems unfair to expect the  unemployed'.to avail themselves  of any scheme for going back to  theland underpresentconditions.  For instance, I would be only too  pleased to avail myself of the  back to the land movement if it  were possible to show me the  land I can obtain. If I had the  money to go on the land I should  place myself out of the unem  ployed list. . I have been trying  to get back to the land for over  eighteen months, but I cannot  even get the train fares, let alone  anything else. I was seVen years  on the prairies and; know that  the farm is the only place where  the working man can get the full  effects of his labor. The more  he doe's, the more he reaps for  himself and his family."  The above is only one case  among thousands which could  easily be relieved if'land settlement in this province was .on a  proper basis.  The land question is one that  wilMiave to be faced sooner or  later. It is of vital and paramount importance to the province  as a whole,- and to every individual in the province.!  The time for 'laying back and  talking complacently' about the  vast resources of, British Columbia is long.past, if indeed, it ever  properly existed.     What is re-  quired now is action on the part  of our government.   Much public  money has been spent in acquiring information   by   means   of  Royal   Commissions   and   other  methods and the public will very  soon be demanding.some return  tor the money expended.  ��������� Now is the-time for-some man  or men to come forward with.a  vigorous policy tending to a complete reivision' of .our present altogether inadequate system of  land settlement.    The question  is, who will be   Can  we look for much improvement  from-a governmentwhich in the  past has shown nothing but in-,  difference to the needs of the  settler ?    Let us^ hope,���������,however,  that in this matter the unexpected will happen and that quickly.  Partisans Still Busy..  While political leaders of both  parties in the Dominion are holding loyally to their decision to  refrain from party strife and  anything which smacks' of partisanship, yet there appears to be  some persons in the government  ranks who do not hesitate to  stoop to party trickery even at  this time.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, as leader  of the Opposition, declared that  the Liberals throughout the Dominion   were in   hearty accord  with the government and would  give every assistance towards  showing a united front to the  common enemy.  As a result of this political  truce, a military vote of fifty  millions was passed without  question or discussion.  It was further stated at the  time that there would be no question of patronage, it being  deemed unthinkable, that party  advantage be made of this crisis  in Canadian affairs..  Evidencing the fact that some  membejjs of the government  were false to .-their word, the  Halifax Record publishes the following correspondence:  ������������������ Warden's Office,  Municipality of Cape Breton,  Louisberg, C. B., Aug. 20, 1914.  "Sir���������Will you kindly inform me  if supplies, etc., required for  militia purposes in Cape Breton  can' be purchased on the advice  of certain people in each community.' ��������� lam, sir, your obedient  servant,  H. C. Levatte,  Warden Municipality of C. B.  To A. E. Carpenter, Esq., Lieut.-  Col. R. C. R., Commanding Defense Troops in Cape Breton,  Sydney, N. S."  The reply to the above letter  is as'follows:  33 Charlotte Street,  - .    Sydney, C. B.  August 26, 1914.  To Warden Municipality of Cape  Breton:  Sir���������I have the honor, regarding your enquiry of date August  20th, to inform you that supplies  are supposed to be purchased  from friends of the political party in" power, so long as their  prices do not exceed current  market rates.  A. E. Carpenter,  Lieut.-Col. R. C. R.  Commanding   Defense   Troops,  Cape Breton.  No doubt this matter has been  brought to the notice of the Premier and the parties concerned  brought to task.  " Contemptible Tactics.  For some time it has been persistently reported from Ottawa  that pressure is being brought  to bear by a certain group of  politicians, under the leadership  of Robert Rogers, upon Premier  Borden with the intention of  persuading him to bring on a  general election this fall. They  consider it good strategy to take  advantage of the crisis through  which the Empire is passing to  make a bold bid for a return to  power. Evidently they would  feel no compunction in diverting  a portion of the war loan loyally  voted by a united parliament to  their party campaign fund,  imagining that the hands of the  Liberals would be tied by their  patriotismk k  A significant hint of'this in-  appeared ,(n the form of an  Ottawa dispatch to the. Ne^v  York press'stating that the gov:  ernment7:wquld probably be  forced 'to'^n-''immediate; appeal  to obtain ^endorsement of its  policy in regard' to Imperial de-  fencer It further declared that  the Libera) party was opposed  to Canada's participation in the  present war arid that but for  this opposition Canada would  have sent llOO.OOO men instead  of some 25/000. This despicable  fabrication^ base and contemptible as the mind of he who inspired it, was copied with relish  by some government papers in  the east.  The Canadian people know full  well that Conservatives and Liberals stand united on the matter  of the Dominion's participation  in ]the war, and will treat this  infamous suggestion with the  scorn and loathing it deserves.  If there has been any criticism by the Liberal press, it has  been upon the unfortunate delay  in dispatching the Canadian contingent, and because more men  should have been sent, in view  of the many who were eager to  offer their services.  Think to .what depth of shame  these low-live politicians would  drag the country! What would  the British people think were  their government to take advantage of the present crisis to spring  a general election? Think of  our shame, when Ulsterman and  Nationalist stand shoulder to  shoulder. When the ministries  of France and Belgium include  factions which in ordinary times  were constantly at each others  throat. When even Russian  nihilists are fighting for the  Czar. Yet we find that there  are men in our midst who would  divide Canada into two hostile  camps and make of us an object  of contempt throughout the civi-  Saturi  The Bank of British North Amen^  Savings  Dep  Accounts opened  for amounts  of $1 and upwards, and may hi  , .opened in two     artment either  names so that  survivor  may   with-  He  draw the amount  BANK MONEY ORDERS: These are neiyoLia.,,  anywhere, and are a cheap form for remitting sni'a,.  sums.

What a yell of delight would  be heard from Berlin, where the  distorted report of a general  election in Canada would be just  what is required to encourage  the Germans to further activity.

The following story is told of  a couple of English.tourists who  were spending a quiet half hour  in a German beer garden.    The  conversation turning to the subject  of   the-monarch   through  whose country they were travelling,   one of   them  remarking,  "The Emperor is  a fool."    A  German,policeman standing near  overheard the  remark and approaching   the  Englishman  requested that he accompany him  to the police station.     "What  for," enquired the Englishman,  somewhat-startled at this turn  of events.    "Shust now, you say  the Emperor vas von fool." "But  I wasn't talking of your Emperor, Twas speaking of the Emperor of Japan."     "Nein! Nein !  you ver not," expostulated the  policeman.    "Der vas be shust  von Emperor dot ee's a fool."

Germany  has been the principal competitor of this company both in Can-  and in the United Kingdom, and  the company is making strenuous  efforts to secure the trade in both  countries that was Germany's.  While one member of the firm  remains in Canada to direct these  efforts in this country, the other  member is now on the Atlantic,  en route to Great Britain, to take  charge of an aggressive campaign  there. In the meantime, in ordei  to cope with the increased orders  that are already coming in, double  shifts are being employed in the  company's plant at Valieyfield.  If the expectations of the company regarding the extension of  its business in the United King:  dom are realized further increases in its staff will be made.  Interviewed just before sailing  for Great Britain, Mr. R. E.  Thorne said:  "We have many enquiries from  all parts of Great Britain for our  products, and we expect that our  business will be very much increased on this account. We are  making arrangements, should  this business warrant it, to increase our factory, and we expect to retain a good share of  this trade."  This young Canadian industry  has set some of its elders a good  example in the matter of ensuring a supply of raw materials  also. Until a few years ago the  Canadian Bronze Powder Works  was dependent upon Europe for  most of its raw materials. The  efforts of the company were directed to the securing of this  raw material in Canada. As a  result, much of it is now bekg  made in the company's plant at  Valieyfield, and practically all  raw material required is produced in Canada. Thus this  Canadian industry is practically  sel-contained, which is a matter  of great advantage under present conditions.  Teachers of elocution can't do  anything for the voice of conscience in most of us.

C.  :na  A New Krupp Gun  Guaranteed to Do Quite a Bit of Damage to Allies at Various Points  New York, Oct. 15.���������(ViaSlay-  ville'Wireless)���������It appears that  Herr von Krupp has had a new  gun up his sleeve that will strike  terror into the hearts of the  Allies, and will end the war at  the first shot. This gun weighs  27,000,000 tons, and the muzzle  is so large that the Kaiser drove  nis limousine down the barrel.  A troop of artillery went through  and a Zeppelin also flew down  the gun from one end to the  other.  It fires a projectile that weighs  23,000,000 tons. On the'projectile is a clock, and it also carries  a time table. It will be fired  from Berlin at 9 a.m., and will  destroy the following cities at  the times mentioned:  , Time, a. m.  Lv. Berlin, Germany   -   - ��������� 9:00  Ar. London, England  -   -   9:01  "  Paris, France    -   -   -   9:02  "  Sydney, Australia -   -( 9:03  "   British South Africa -" 9:04  "  Petrograd, Russia -   -   9:05  "  Antwerp, Belgium     -   9:05  "  Ottawa, Canada    -   -   9:07  - The   projectile   is   so   highly  trained that as it passes Ottawa  and destroys the town it picks  up the Bank of England's $100,-  000,000 gold reserve resting there  and flees back to Germany, landing it in the vaults of the Deut-  che   Bankogazelleshaft at  9:13  a. m.  A. D. LIARSBERG.  The foregoing details regarding the new Krupp gun are confirmed by Count von Bernstorff,  who stands ready to confirm anything fayorable to Germany.  "I have known about this gun  all along," said the Count, "but  decided to keep it quiet. It was  invented by Herr Krupp one day  while playing a game of tennis  with the Kaiser."  The Best Defensive  is an Ardent Attack  In chess, in play, in war, and  in business the best defensive is  an ardent attack.  e Leadership and success are not mere matters opposition and resources. They are matters of spirit.  The spirit of leadership and success shows  itself in aggressive action.  In Canada eventual leadership and success  . in manufacturing, wholesale and retail enterprise will belong to those who push forward  now and always. Those who seek merely to  conserve their position become stationary and  expose themselves to the danger of ultimate  destruction.  These are the lessons and facts of history.  The occupation of new fields of trade and  the winning of new customers are achieved at  the least cost of money and time by the adoption of a strong, constantly-maintained and  prudentpolicyofadvertisinginthepublicpress. ���������  Maintenance of attack wears  down  resistance.  Robinson's Remedies Never Did Fail  The fact that the fumes of this Oily Powder remain with  the bird for days, thereby killing all the lice and mites,  gives conclusive proof of the superiority of the "sticking"  qualities of ROBINSON'S LICE POWDER.
