'  Italy to Assist Serbia  Udine, Italy, Oct. 14. via Paris,  Oct. 15. ���������It is generally believed  here that Italy's participating in  allied movement to assist Serbia  is being arranged with Entente  powers, but further consultations  between War and Finance .Ministers will be necessary. Public  opinion in Italy inclines totho  belief that it will be impossible  for this nation to remain indifferent to the settlement of the  conflict in the Balkans.  $1.00 a Year  Secret Treaty Exists  London, Oct. 11.    It is openly  th and west of) asserted in Berlin that a secret  treaty  exists   between   Greece,  Germany and Bulgaria, says the  Morning Post Berne despatch.  The S. S. Chelohsin finds it  hard to abandon the run to Bella  Coola.

"It is  impossible for Rumania to stay  out of the war," said Take Jone-  scu, former Rumanian Minister  of the Interior, as quoted by the  Bucharest correspondent of the  "Corriere Delia Serra."  M. Jonescu affirmed his "absolute certainty" of the defeat of  Germany .and her Allies, and  continued:  "I believe moral forces are invincible. Germany represents  reaction and therefore must be  crushed. I pity the Bulgarian  people who are rushing into an  abyss.  "1 shall use all my strength to  induce Rumania to throw her  sword into the balan#. I can  state that this is tin- nation's  greatest desire."  The S.S. Camosun came in  Friday evening at eight o'clock  with mail, freight and passengers. The passengers were all  familiar to the crowd at the  wharf as they are frequent visitors. Mr. and Mrs. R. 0. Jennings, Mr. F. W. Evans and Mr.  A. II. Tomlinson, all of Prince  Rupert, were the visitors.  Mr. J. W. Macdonald and Mr.  H. O. English left on the steamer.  A. F. Gothard returned after  spending thespringand summer  at the Namu cannery.  Gus Pearson has been engaged  at. the Kimsquit cannery as net  foreman this season. They both  have their homes here and will  spend the winter improving  their homesteads.  Ashore at Bella Bella  fs escaped in an automobile.

The Alaskan Steamship Company's freight and passenger  steamer Mariposa, bound from  Seattle to Alaskan ports with 7!)  passengers and a large freight  cargo is ashore at Bella Bella.  It is supposed she struck during  fog. No fear is felt (or the safety of the Mariposa.  The steamer Otter, which was  sent with the steamer Salvor, to  assist in the floating <>f the Mariposa, herself ran ash<>re m the  channel between Dairy and James  islands, Saturday. The steamer  Princess Maquinna was sent out  to her rescue, and the tugNitm-  at was sent, later for the same  purpose.  R. 0. Jennings, road-superintendent, is always studying how  he can improve our means of  communication. When he has  been away from here a little  while an idea occurs to him how  the wagons and the automobile  can travel along the road without jarring the occupants and  forthwith he returns to put his  idea into execution. This time  he is accompanied by Mrs. Jennings and they will spend a couple  of weeks with their numerous  friends in the valley.  Mr. Jennings will take a look  at the country around Anaham  Lake while here. He may have  designs on that country which  he will deliberate upon during  the long winter evenings in the  far north at Prince Rupert, and  have them all ready to act upon  when spring comes.  A. H. Tomlinson, provincial  horticulturist, is somewhat belated in his visit this time; but  even if he is too late to see the  tine display of farm products at  the late Bella Coola Fair, which!  he, with Mr. English, was expected   to judge,  Now that the most strenuous  part of the year's work is over  two of our young men it is learned are contemplating enlisting  for the war.  Randolph Saugstad and Edward  Grant will leave, within a month  for the training camp.  Ed. Grant's brother, Fred, who  enlisted a year ago, is now ir.  France battling for his country.  We should be proud if more of  our young men would respond to  the country's call.  Randolph Saugstad is at present busy preparing the Dominion  fishing launch Merlin for her  winter quarters.  . Chas. Tucker, Dominion constable, is away on a trip to the  Indian" villages of Kimsquit, Bella Bella and China Hat. He will  be away about two weeks.  The ladies will have a meeting  to make the final arrangements  at the residence of Rev. T. C.  Colwell next Wednesday afternoon, and a cordial invitation is  extended to all their friends,  which include: everybody, to attend. ���������  We believe it must have,been  an.oversight on the part of our  spiritual leaders that nothing  was done to make the day set  apart by the government for  thanksgiving an occasion for our  people to show their appreciation  to a kind Providence for the  greatest harvest ever gathered  in Bella Coola, as well as many  other good . things which they  possess and enjoy.  The Ladies Aid Society of Hagensborg. had their annual sale  Thursday the 7th instant.  The attendance was not as large  as usual, but the ladies treated  those present to a dinner so excellent that when the sale was  over it was found that the guests  had parted with $128, and the  treasury of the society was richer to that amount.  The fishing season at Bella  Coola has proven quite profitable,  both to the fishermen and canning  concern. The plant is now closed  and everything dismantled and  put away for the winter. The  employees are leaving by every  steamer.  Manager J. B. Saint with family  left on the Camosun last Thursday. A. Atkins, accountant, and  Wesley Linnell, engineer of the  S. S.

Dear Madam,���������We beg to acknowledge the receipt of your  favor of the 16th instant enclosing your cheque for the sum of  seven dollars, as an additional  contribution to our Base Hospital.

Former experiences tell us,  that there will now be a  struggle, and we think a successful one, to attain to or even exceed the results of the sale helo  by the other branch of the same  society last week.  As the amount necessary for  the purchase of a machine gun  has now been fully subscribed  the treasurer of the fund now  calls upon those who have not  paid their subscriptions to do so  within a week. The money will  then be placed at the disposal of  the government.  Harry Grainger has moved into his new quarters at the Gled-  hill's place. The house and premises have been improved to a  degree that will make it an attractive home. Mr. Grainger  has bought from Mr. Lindsell a  buggy which, together with his  horse, may not exactly help to  improve the looks of the place,  but should prove strong inducements to someone to share the  comforts of the place with him.  We are awaiting further developments.        Wm. Sutherland's big launch  has been out of commission almost ever since it arrived here  last summer. But now W. Grum-  mett has been at work repairing  it for a number of days and we  can well conclude it will soon be  ready to plow the water's of the  inlet.   The Government has requested  F. Broughton, provincial constable, to solicit contributions  for the British Red Cross Society.  J. H. Whitcombe, W. F. Roland and L. Peterson, discovered  upon scrutinizing the mountains  opposite their respective hemes,  that the wild inhabitants of the  wilderness were deploying on the  mountain sides spying out the  settlement, with, its well filled  granaries.

The following exhibitors of  Bella Coola have received prizes  at the Prince Rupert Fair:  0. J.

The trouble about the water  supply for the hotel still continues. In spite of the restraining  order of the magistrate the defendant in defiance of the court  severs the water pipe about as  fast as the plaintiff in the case  is able to patch it up.

Toronto Globe, Canada's greatest daily, and Toronto Saturday  Night, another influential paper,  have recently   been   publishing  series of articles on the deplorable conditions in British Columbia and biaming the administration for bringing them about. So  it seems there are people outside  of the province who are sufficiently interested in our affairs to  study them and who are not backward in publishing their opinions.  It is not only the ever fault finding Liberals of the province who  castigate  our  government but  the leading newspapers, expressing the prevalent public opinion,  are just.as ready to criticize its  methods and the results.  ��������� ���������  Sir Richard McBride finds it  necessary to notice the assaults  made by such formidable critics  and sends each of them letters  defending hisradministration and  complaining ^hat the fair name  of  the  provjnee  is  being  besmirched and that by people far  away who have no interest at  stake and should therefore not  throw stones at their neighbors.  Sir Richard   declares  that   the  court of public opinion to which  his government shall have resort  is the people of British Columbia  and that to them alone he is responsible; which in the vernacular means "It is none of your  business," to; which  the Globe  replies: | . i-  "The Globe cannot concede  that what haripens in the Pacific  province is not of interest and  importance to Canadians everywhere. From the material  standpoint the people of Eastern  Canada are vitally interested in  British Columbia. Vast sums'  have been invested by them in  real estate, in timber lands, in  mining development, and in  many   other   British   Columbia  projects from which they hoped  to reap profit while assisting in  opening up the country."   - '  The Saturday Night has this to  say on the same subject in reply  co Sir Richard's declaration:  "The east has a real interest  in the west.    It has an interest  in seeing the governments of the  western provinces give the public a square deal.    It has an interest in seeing that these provinces thrive and prosper.    It  must be remembered that eastern  money and eastern men are largely responsible for the  development of the west.    If the funds  which..the east furnishes are not  well used, so much the worse for  both the east and the west.  . On  no other basis can the country  as. a  whole,   or   the   provinces  singly, become great."  To Sir Richard's charge,that  the Globe cannot be sufficiently  -well acquainted with the conditions -here to   offer   intelligent  criticism the Gibbesays:  "'The  Globe desires to say in all kindness that Mr. 'Lambert .(Globe  correspondent) is more closely in  touch with actual conditions in  the outlying portions of the province than the premier himself."  "The final test of statesmanship, in, British Columbia today,"  the Globe continues, "is the anchorage of   the people on "the  land.. Premier McBride has failed  utterly when his administration  is subject to that test.   .Sir Richard  must 'choose   "between; the  speculator and the settler. Neither his letter nor his memorandum  indicates that   he   understands  what that choice means in determining the-future of British Co-  GSLLETT'S  LYE  EATS DIRT"  ���������"���������*cuiuw,0M  6^=!?*  "SflMEo  feUETTCOMRMIYUMffg  TORONTO ONT.  t  If the Allies should be deprived  of an adequate supply of arms  the first thing that would happen  would be the crushing of Britain,  France, Italy and Serbia as completely as Belgium was crushed.  That sounds very good to the  peace lovers referred to we must  suppose.  The balance of power between  the world powers would be destroyed to the extent that one  power   would   dominate   in   all  world affairs.   Those who know  anything  at   all   about   human)important principle, for  nature and that of the German  especially, can with very little  reflection concjude what tendency  this great power in the hands of  Germany would assume.  Next Germany's Arrogance  and Domination would penetrate  the whole of the world relations,  not alone those of the European  nations mentioned, but also the  others, Africa and Asia, with  India, China .and Japan, would  be in a position in which they  must submit to its sinister and  ever increasing strength of influence. Canada as a British possession would, be dictated to like  a conquered country. United  States would' become impotent  in world politics and probably  would have .to submit to the  domineering of the German-Americans within her border, who  would be efficiently supported  and cheered on by "das grosse  Vaterland.'\ '  The peace makers would obtain  peace, but it would, be the peace  found when outraged humanity  lacks the strength to vindicate  its rights, it would be the peace  found in the death of that all-  which  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co Ltd  VANCOUVER,  B.C.

When we -hear of the peace-  lovers protest against the United  States government permitting  munitions of war to be shipped  to the Allies, we are somewhat  dubious about their motives.  They profess a great horror of  a neutral nation furnishing  weapons for the slaughter of  human beings.  This sounds very virtuous and  would be just the thing to advocate if it would bring about beneficial results. Put as matters  stand the opposite would happen.

The peace lovers, therefore,  who protest against the. shipment of arms are either-shortsighted and do not understand  the consequences of what1 they  advocate, or else they love German domination and, therefore,  are to be classed among our enemies.  The Allies of Germany.  It is interesting to consider  the kind of allies Germany is associated with in this war.  First and foremost is Austria-  Hungary,  a conglomeration   of  different    races,    dominant   of  whichis the German or Teutonic.  Lately,  the   Literary  Digest,  one of the foremost of American  weeklies, instituted  an  inquiry  among the newspapers published  in United States by citizens formerly from European countries  engaged in the war.   The inquiry  disclosed the fact that nearly all  nationalities   sympathized  with  their  native   countries   in   the  struggle, with the exception of  those from the twin monarchy.  Bohemians, Slavs, Czechs, Magyars, and even Teutonic Austrians, were unsympathetic to their  have for generations been s|  jected   to   an   unjust rule  therefore are against their nat  land.    And this, attitude of  former subjects of Austria-H|  garyspeaks volumes on the or,  acter of this ally of Germany.  In view of the frightful  sacres committed by that ot!  ally, Turkey, against Armenia  Bulgars and other Christian si  jects, it is not necessary to i  large further upon the charad  of this partner in the fight j  the German style of liberty.  .  The third ally, Bulgaria,  by joining the Central Powe  disclosed a character that isi  much above its companions.  1878,  if we  are not mistakl  she was released from a slav<  under Turkey of 400 years staj  ing.

The Victoria Week among all  the exchanges coming.to our office is the most active in its  criticism of the prohibition measure, which it is proposed to submit.to the voters at a plebiscite.  In its issue of September 25th  there is a long editorial on the  subject, "Prohibition and the  Moral Argument." In it complaint is made that some prohibitionists assert that all sane  people  are   in   the   prohibition  camp.  !    While we object to committing  f  ' ourselves on this point, we would  I like to call The Week's attention  ] to the fact that through charges  of that kind the Antis are receiving in a small degree the  same treatment they for a long  time have accorded-to the prohibitionists.  In the very article where The  Week makes its complaint, the  editor is guilty of assertions just  as uncharitable, and a little more  so. He says prohibition is a  "pretence;" he further says, "if  the prohibitionists had advocated  'abolition'instead of prohibition'  they would have ieast raised an  honest issue." It seems to us  that that the charge of hypocrisy  so often made by "Antis"against  prohibitionists is contained, with  variations, under the above quoted opinions and are certainly  equally uncharitable as the one  of lack of sanity complained of.  The trouble with the "Antis"  in our opinion, is that they shut  their eyes to the results of prohibition where it has been in  practice for a number of years.  They generally ignore facts and  o-ive theories. They even go so  fal. as to resurrect a speech  against prohibition made sixty  wars ago. Once in a while they  quote   "facts  SYNOPSIS OF COAL MINING  REGULATIONS  QOAL MINING RIGHTS of the Dominion, in  Manitoba,.Saskatchewan and Alberta,  the- V IJKOK TKKRITORY, thf'NOKTH-WESTTKKKl-  toiiikk and in a |>ort.ion of the PROVINCE of������-  1'Ki'i isi!

Bella  Coola   farmers are independent]  they are strangers to hard times.  TTHE REASONS for this enviable condi-  -*��������� tion 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.  OELLA COOLA and the surrounding  country possesses wonderful wealth  in timber, as yet almost entirely undeveloped, and perhaps at no other point  on the Northern Coast is there the same  opportunity for a remunerative investment as in a saw mill at Bella Coola.  i���������I  &  (���������>  The  Best Known and   Popular Lubricant for  Motor Boats  Its use assures freedom from Carbon deposit  on valves, spark plugs, or In cylinders  IMPERIAL OIL CO.

We will do it right.  The low prices of potatoes prevailing a short time ago are being  slowly but surely   replaced by  higher quotations.     Instead of*  $9?00 per ton in Vancouver they  are now selling at $15.00 on Bella  Coola wharf for the Prince Rupert market.    And   the outlook  is for. better prices  still.    The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  of the '6th of October gives a  survey of the potato crop through  out Canada and'has this to say  in part:  "From the East to the West  the crop is light, but more particularly in Ontario and parts of  the Maritime Provinces. Excessive wet weather is responsible  either directly or indirectly for  the shortage. In Nova Scotia  and New Brunswick, the wet  weather was followed by blight,  with the result that there will be  considerable rot.   ��������� .  In Ontario, where one quarter  of the total Canadian yield is  produced, <the crop is very light;  in. some sections owing to rain  and resulting rot it-is practically  a failure. In New. Ontario soft  rot is prevalent throughout the  whole area. In the West the  crop is not up to the average."  The average yield for the whole  of Canada will, according to the  estimate of the journal quoted,  be not more than 60 per cent, of  what the crop was last year.  "Potatoes are in great demand  this year and judging from present indications" says the Family  production. .  There ought also to be a good  market in United States this year demand for their potatoes they  sinc������ the crop in the Eastern  States is poor. New Zealand is  becoming a market for British  Columbia potatoes; a remunerative market has been found in  Cuba and elsewhere for large  quantities. Six out of seven of  the world's greatest potato producing countries are at war so  the.production of these countries  will be below the average.  must all raise the same kind, so  that when a buyer gets a lot of  our potatoes he knows just what  they are and he will also know  what the next lot will be like.  Therefore, let the Farmers' Institute ascertain the most desirable  variety and recommend that farmers raise that kind.  Co-Operation in Marketing.  Dealing with the marketing of  the chief products of a community the desirability of co-operation among the. producers is one  of the things whh;h should receive special attention.  * Our local Farmers' Institute is  organized  to serve in cases of  this kind and it is because we  believe that if. the question is  pointed out to its officers, and  members steps will be taken to  cooperate also in the raising of  a certain kind of crop.  Bella Coola potatoes have  earned a name for themselves of  being equal to the best- in the  province, and it is ���������. important  that this fact be borne in mind  Cream.  Hoard's Dairyman' states that  Jersey cream is no better than  cream made from milk of other  dairy breeds of cattle.  The richness of cream depends  upon the percentage of fat it  contains and not on the breed by  which it is produced. Its quality  depends upon the methods of  feeding and the methods of handling the milk and'cream.  ESTABLISHED AT BELLA COOLA IN 18%  A Tribute do the late JI.  Leese.  Editor,  R.

Packers and Provisioncrs  Calgary     Vancouver     Edmonton  Sir,��������� I have just received  through this mail definite news  concerning our fellow settler A.  R. Leese, which* I should thank  your courtesy to communicate to  his numerous friends.  After diligent and persistent  enquiries, some men were found  of the 16th Battalion and amongst  those a stretcher  bearer,   who  saw poor Dick dead in a wood in  an advanced position   amongst  the   enemy's   trenches..   They  could not recover the body owing  to the numerous snipers and this  position was afterwards and for  a long time in the German lines.  ��������� He left all that was dear to hifn  and all those who loved him and  appreciated his sterling qualities  to go and  fight for a sublime  idea.   These are the men  that  reveal the secret of the British  Empire.   And the fact that in  the few years he was amongst  us he had beeome a real Westerner and loved our Valley so much  ought to give him a good place  in our best memories.    Good old  Dick had the broad, rugged and  generous soul of a man, a real he  man.    I am sure he would not  wish us  to grieve  for him  as  much as for his parents and his  fiancee.    He died  as  he  lived:  following an  idea with  single-  minded  stubborness,   thoroughness, and above all, grit.  M. W. Marvin.  Constantia Ranch, Atnarko, B.C.
