"The plain- truth is, there is  only two alternatives open to the  government. The first is to keep  Ulster in the Home Rule bill with  the certainty of civil violence on  a far greater scale than has been  witnessed in Ireland for centuries:  the second is to leave Ulster out  of the bill."  Mr. Smith argues that the latter plan would necessitate an entirely new bill * and it is' very  doubtful if Mr. Redmond would  accept, or those who control him  in Ireland permit him to accept  such a bill.      -  Three Balkan States Mobilize Their  Armies; Preparing for Hostilities  FOUR ARE UNITED AGAINST THE TURKS  Bulgarians Have 400,000 Men Ready to Take the Field, Say:  >    ^conditions'.

H A mass meeting to which every  ^ime in the Yale district was in-  ^yitedwasheldon Thursday night  in Hope.' The cause of the gathering was to try and   find  some  means of putting an end to conditions which have become intolerable, the high-h&hded methods of  :y the road superintendent and his  sl: local   foreman   having   reached  :| such a stage as to bring into contempt the administration of the  department of public work in this  I    district.  Treated With Contempt  This dissatisfaction has now become so keen that other towns  which have reniained silent up to  the present, in the hope that something would be done to alleviate  conditions, are now up in arms.  With the aid of some official in  Victoria, the local officers are able  to treat- with contempt any request for improvements.  Delegates to the meeting from  other parts of the riding told of  the waste of public money building roads and bridges thirty feet  from the surveyed line of the  engineers after being notified by  the engineer that they were off  the line.  Maladministration  Items concerning the maladministration of the public works  department in this district mentioned at the meeting would fill a  column, and residents are unable  to understand how the minister  of public works can allow such a  state of affairs to exist even for  a day. &  A large del&gati.n of well-  known citizens was elected to  wait Ion the -government in  Victoria to try and put an end to  this state of things. , A petition  is also being; widely signed for  presentation to the minister of  public worlcs.

Mr. John Jorgenson has returned to Bella Coola after a two  years stay as caretaker and net  boss at the Draney Cannery,  Kimsquit. He intends to make  Bella Coola his home after this,  but as his life at the cannery has  had an ennervating effect on him  he has decided to spend the winter in Minnesota for the purpose  of bracing up. If he returns  more braced up than he is under  .ordinary conditions, he will be  too lively for m. Our advice is,  he had better hibernate on his  ranch at Noosatsum this winter.  Davenport Clayton while spending a day at Buen-Retiro ranch,  in the upper Bella Coola valley  last week, in taking a walk around  the premises, suddenly noticed a  huge bear steering right for him,  apparently on mischief bent, the'  man of leisure espied Mr. Bruin  far enough away to get ready for  action and with two well directed  of their time to come to this place.  .The meetings, at Hagensborg  church were well attended, and  the appeals made to hearts and  minds were eagerly listened to.  The singing of Rev. Fosse was  not only edifying but also entertaining, because of his rich and  well-trained voice.  Rev. Ellingson is well and  favorably known from a former  visit to the valley nine years ago.  lie is a preacher in his mother  tongue and also in the English  language, he is eloquent, forceful  and convincing, and seems to be  gaining with the years.  If the close attention given to  the spoken word can be taken as  an. indication of real hunger and  and thirst after God and his  righteousness, then the fruits of  these meetings will be more love  and peace in the hearts, and  greater willingness to labor in  whatever service God calls us to  perform. To obtain such results  from these meetings was not only  the hope, but also the prayer of  those who planned aid worked  for them.

Jim Holte has apparently never  forgiven the bears of Bella Coola  the assault and subsequent chew- ���������  ing he received from one of their  number a few years ago. We always thought Jim to be a magnanimous sort of a man; but last  Sundays''s episode seems to show .  that he is not< above taking what  might be called a mean advant?  age of the bear family.  Last Sunday as he and Ivor  Westmo  "was   going   down   the  northern bank of the Bella Coola '  river, opposite Grumsfe>]Js place,  they saw bruin on the opposite  side of the river.    The bear was  not in a position to defend itself .'���������  but that did not stop Jim from   '  taking deliberate aim. at the un-.''  suspecting animal, with the result  that two balls laid him low.    Jim  would not skin a bear on Sunday, *  so returned next day and secured  a very fine skin, which he will no  doubt make into a rug to wipe  his feet on.  balls,  from a 401 rifle,  stopped  the animal's career.

as it has the drier climate of the
interior, -being situated ,60 or 70
miles from the dpen-sea, and.yet,
has the added advantage of being
on an arm of the sea and possess-
ing a very good harbor..
The rainfall is about 30 inches,
being about the same as" Victoria^
and the altitude of the "entire
valley does not exceed* three to
four 'hundred feet, so there is ho
sev.ere cold in winter, zero
weather being the exception.
When the valley becomes better,
known it will prove^'a rstrong
rival to the southern portion of
Vancouver Island in attracting
the better class of home-seekersv
As soon as the railway, that is
now assured, is Completed, it is

the people who have made a success on the'prairies and in" the
Eastern provinces, are going to
"seek these few ideal spots, on'the
coast, for a home where they can
enjoy the agreeable climate, after
spending a few, years of the more
vigorous eastern climate.
