Two aviators made prisoners, one mortally wounded  . by sharpshooters.  Allies hold important position at Ypres, commanding the  roads from Ostend to Lille.    German positions north of the  Aisne are becoming untenable because of removal of troops  ���������   to strengthen other parts of their lines.  Times correspondent in Bordeaux says "General impression  . prevails here that we are on the eve of the liberation of French  soil from invaders. It is believed that the Germans cannot  long resist the combined pressure of the Allied armies and will  be forced to weaken their centre, thus relieving Soissons and  Rheims. This will endanger General Von Kluck's army which  is already in jeopardy, more especially because snow is falling  in the Ardennes. A despatch to the Daily Mail from Boulogne  says the Germans have been driven from Lille. Germans entered Ostend at 10:30 last Thursday morning, according to  Daily Mail's correspondent who left the port at the moment  of German occupancy.  It is officially announced by the British war office that four  German torpedo-boat destroyers were sunk off the Dutch coast  yesterday by the British light cruiser Undaunted.

I Reported from German sources that airship sheds are being  |      built at Tonderin in Schelsweig and Bostock near Baltic Sea.  | London despatch says all reports of fighting in Belgium  ^ agree. British warships bombarded villages held by Germans  at the same time infantry advances were made. Caught between two fires, the Germans lied. A report states that during the German advance on Dunkirk a large unexpected body  of troops attacked them, British warships co-operating. The  The Germans fell back in confusion on Ostend. Troops from  all Belgium hurried to Nieuport. Results of fight caused the  greatest surprise and anxiety to German officers. One general  committed suicide.

Peck offering to form two companies in connection with the  sixty-eight Prince Rupert Light  Infantry Regiment. This is  showing the right spirit, and  proves the natives are loyal to  the core, and realize their responsibility to the King and Empire.  Thirteen British  Ships Sunk  London, Oct. 23. ��������� A late dispatch from Teneriffe reports that  the German cruiser Karlsrhue  has sunk thirteen British merchantmen in the south Atlantic.

Government employees  have been notified to return to  Paris at the end of the month.  Russians Attacking  on Vistula  French and British Warships  Bombard Belgian Ports  London, Oct. 23.���������B^rench naval vessels are assisting British  monitors in the bombardment of the German forces at Ostend  and Nieuport. The fighting in Belgium has now developed into a terrific artillery duel in which the Allies have the advantage owing to the long range of their naval guns.  Muddy roads and the network of canals are proving a great  hindrance to the invaders, making the movement of hpavy  artillery extremely difficult. The British naval losses so far  are negligible.  An unconfirmed report says the German line of communication is cut and the enemy's troops have commenced to retire.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  Petrograd, Oct. 23.���������Russian  troops have intercepted the Germans on the Vistula River and  are attacking fiercely. The enemy has abandoned the line from  Ivangorod to Kozielieds after  sustaining heavy loss and is being hotly pursued by Russian  cavalry. All efforts by the Austrians to cross the River San  have been repulsed. The Russians have resumed the offensive  in the region of Jaroslau.  Violent Attacks on Allies  Left Wing  Paris, Oct. 23.���������The enemy's  forces on the Allies left wing  continue to make violent attacks  between Labasse canal and the  sea.. The corps employed in this  latest movement seems to have  been only recently raised and includes many very young and  middle aged men.  Official despatches from Paris says all attacks of enemy  yesterday at Nieuport, Dixmunde a.nd Labasse were repulsed  with great energy. At all other points there is no notable  change.  United States government has entered protest over seizure  of Standard Oil tanker John D. Rockefeller, with cargo of illuminating oil, taken into Orkney Islands by British warship.  The tanker had only recently changed to American register.  * *���������   The protest claims that a cakgo to a neutral port is n'otkoritra"-  band.  Thursday.    A Rotterdam despatch says German reinforcements  with two seventeen-inch howitzers have arrived at Antwerp  on way to Bruges.    Antwerp garrison  greatly  reduced, only  a few policemen on duty.    Plundering increasing.  Evacuation of Ostend not confirmed, but Berlin report says  British ships are shelling the city.  Russians drive enemy more than 13 kilometres in region of  Warsaw.  Part of Von Kluck's lines of communication in Belgium are  severed and he now faces two alternatives, either to surrender or to retreat on prepared positions in Belgium. He may  avoid the former but is very unlikely to escape the latter.  S. S. Camosun arrived in port  to time on Sunday morning last,  discharging freight and passengers at the government wharf.  Proceeding to the cannery wharf  she took on a large consignment  of canned salmon for the south.  Mr. and Mrs. West of Seattle,  are among the late arrivals. Mr.  West is a mining engineer and  comes for the purpose of making  an inspection of the placer gold  claims on the Skowquiltz River,  a tributary of Dean Channel, for  which place he left on Monday  accompanied by Jesse and Fred  Hendricks, the discoverers of the  property. Mrs. West is registered at the Grand View Hotel.  Constable Brough'ton returned  last Sunday from Vancouver  where he had been attending the  Assize Court.  Capt. and Mrs. W. D. Stephen-  sen, and Mr. E. Whitehead, of  Nootsatsum, left on the last  south-bound steamer. They intend spending the winter in Alberta where they will engage in  evangelical work, returning here  in the spring.  R. Demorest, until recently a  partner in the local fox farm,  left on the last Camosun. He is  on his way to Western Australia.  Mr. Demorest's interest in the  fox farm has been purchased by  one of the original partners, who  is a well known local man.  Mr. Gibbs, representative of  the Computing Scale Co. of Canada, went south oh Sunday after  a well-spent week in town.  Mr. E. M. Haynes of Victoria,  assistant post office inspector,  left the valley by the last steamer after inspecting the local post  offices as far as Firvale.  Among the many other outgoing passengers by the last southbound stearner were Mr. and  Mrs. J. B. Saint who are returning to their home at Steveston.  Mr. Saint has spent the past  nine summers at Bella Coola as  manager of the local cannery  operated by the B. C. Packers  Association. Under his able  management the cannery this  year put up the record pack of  26,000 cases.  The local Ladies' Aid met on  ! Wednesday afternoon at the home  of Mrs. Wm. Sutherland. At the  conclusion of the general business  the president distributed material for home work among the  many members present. A  quantity of mixed vegetables,  kindly donated by Mr. S. Le C.  Grant, were sold among the  members and the proceeds placed  to the general fund of the society.  Any contributions of a like, nature will be gratefully received.  The Ladies' Aid meets the third  Wednesday in each month. The  next meeting will be held at the  home of Mrs. I. Fougner when  all members are requested to attend.           DROWNING FATALITY.  A sad drowning fatality occurred on Tuesday when a young  Indian girl aged nine years, the  daughter of Wm. Pollard, met  her death in the Bella Goola  River. Deceased was alone at  the time she met her death, consequently the exact circumstances are not definitely known.  Lovers of music will do well to  drop in to the Grandview Hotel  this evening, when they will be  treated to some selections by  Mrs. T. P. Saugstad, piano; T.  P. Saugstad, violin; Fred. Renworth, flute, and others.. ��������� No  charge will be made and everyone is asked to attend and join  in a real social evening.  An instance of what Bella Coola land is capable of producing  comes from Mr. B. F. Jacobsen.  Mr. Jacobsen had a small patch  of land in the corner of his farm  in which he planted potatoes.  The patch is exactly 3-8 of an  acre and has yielded the immense crop of 131 sacks, which  is approximately equal to 18 tons  to the acre.  The power-cruiser Charles Todd  with Indian-agent Fougner returned to port on Thursday after  a trip to Bella Bella.

In last week -s issue the Courier  made mention of the difficulty  which confronts our farmers and  others in the'matter of steamboat  transportation to jPrince Rupert  and other pqints in the north.  There was a time, not very  long ago,' when 'the steamship  company which now serves Bella  Coola found It possible to have  a steamer call at this port on her  trip both to and from Prince  Rupert. At the present time  we are served by a single steamer which goes no further north  than this place, unless it be to  Bella .Bella, Kimsquit or Ocean  Falls. Her trip is from Victoria  to Bella Coola and return, calling  at way ports. Thus are we cut  off absolutely from access to the  Prince Rupertt market:  Now-a-days, when an individual or a corporation is asked, to  consider any undertaking, the  first question asked is "What is  there in it?" We know that this  has been asked by certain parties  when requested to urge steamboat communication between  Prince Rupert and various ports  to the'north of Queen Charlotte  Sound. !v'  An old-timer from Bella Coola  interviewed by a; member of the  Prince Rupert Board of Trade,  regarding our   request   for  a  steamboat service to the north,  was asked the question "How  many spuds do you grow?" As  if Prince Rupert was only to develop on the business of importing spuds. There was no question of what ^stock do your merchants carry? How many stores  have you? What is the approximate amount of your imports?  The Union S. S. Co.'s steamer  Camosun lies; at this wliarf for  several hours every trip unloading freight for our local merchants and'others. The warehouse accommodation at the  wharf has been practically  doubled recently and is still inadequate.    This accommodation  is in addition to the private warehouses of the rrierchants.  Some of our merchants purchase heavily from eastern wholesale houses. These goods are  transported over the C. P. R. to  Vancouver and thence to this  place. This trade must eventually pass to the Grand Trunk and  it is only right that it should.  There is the business connected with the fisheries in waters  adjacent to Bella Coola to be  taken into account. This season  our local cannery put up 26,000  cases of salmon, Namu packed  40,000 cases, Kimsquit 25,000,  besides East Bella Bella, the  amount of which pack we are  unable ��������� to state. Surely this  business would be welcome to  the Grand Trunk.  , Supposing even that it did not  pay a Grand Trunk steamer to  transport this salmon to Prince  Rupert, any loss on the sea,trip  would easily be more than repaid  by the long haul to the east.  As regards ��������� the subject of  spuds, which seems to absorb  the minds of some people in  Prince Rupert, we are in a position-to state that orders'are being  received from that city at the  present time aggregating nearly  one hundred tons, which cannot  be favorably considered under  present conditions.  Our farmers have the goods,  the quality of which is second to  none, but they are not satisfied  to have them lugged up and down  the coast, handled and rehandled  andiiumped here and there before arriving at their destination.  When arc. Prince Rupert and  the Grand Trunk going to claim  that which rightfully belongs to  them? Are they entirely under  the thumb of ������the C.'P. R., if not,  why don't they rustle trade? It  may not pay very well at first,  but can confidently be expected  to increase. t  To the question. "How much  produce is raised in Bella ^Coola  at present?" we reply, "more  than ��������� can be got to a profitable  market," and that is the sole  reason why more is not grown.  oo'ooo  Apparently Rattled. '"[  Sir Richard McBride has been  to Ottawa to discuss Pacific coast  defense with the federal  government. We remember him  once stating that no policy which  did not include a fleet unit for  the defense of the Pacific coast  would be satisfactory to British  Columbia. That is to say, satisfactory to Sir Richard. Later  we found in him a strong advocate of the policy of contribution,  apparently forgetting the defenseless state of the western  coastline. Now it seems that he  is not quite sure what to remember and what to forget, and with  the vague possibility of an early  general election he was not to be  caught napping. Hence his visit  to Ottawa.  o     o     o     o     o  Redistribution.  The suggestion by the Liberals  that each of the members for  Vancouver should be elected to  represent sorhe distinct district  in the city instead of the present  system of five men being elected  to represent the city at large,  does not seem to meet with the  approval of the Conservatives.  It was suggested that to interfere with the present system  might cause friction, to which  the reply was offered that a little  friction might be a good thing.  True it is, that the present  unanimity among the members  is a painful thing.  The fear is, that to adopt the  suggestion of district representation would perhaps endanger the  re-elections of the "solid five,"  each of whom are strongly in  favor of letting "well enough"  alone..  While the city of Vancouver  elects a number of members at  large, it allows. each to shove  responsibility on . to the other,  until the electorate do not know  who is directly responsible for  this or that.  A man elected to represent a  certain district must bear his responsibility alone. He cannot  push it over on to someone else.  If his constituency is not fairly  treated or properly represented  he must face his electors and  give an account of his stewardship.  The ."solid five" do not like  this thought. The ward system  is alright as far as party organization goes, but when it comes  Fruit Growing in Bella  Coola Valley  By A. H. Tomlinson.  The Fruit Growers of Bella  Coola Valley are making very  satisfactory progress. The apples this season in the valley  have done remarkably well. 1  am taking with me to Victoria  some specimens of different varieties to shew the Deputy-  Minister, Mr. W. E. Scoffand,  the Provincial Horticulturist,  Mi*. R. M. Winslow, of what the  valley  is capable of producing.  There is much yet to be learnt,  however, with fruit growing. I  have pleasure in outlining the  following for the consideration  of present aWfuture fruit growers of the district in connection  with the growing of tree and  stone fruits as apples and pears,  cherries and plums respectively.  (1) Choose suitable site���������sloping land is-best, avoid/planting  in low places, particularly where  the water table is high or floods  occur.

Why do they call, sonny, why do  they call  For men who are  brave  and  strong?  Is it naught to you if your country  fall,  And   Right   is    smashed   by  Wrong?  Is it football still and the picture  show, .  The pub and the betting odds,  When your brothers stand to the  tyrant's blow  And England's call is God's?

(4) On planting an orchard  one should make a plan and mark  out proposed spot before trees  arrive. Names or numbers of  trees should appear on plan so  that'owner may know varieties  planted. Mixing varieties is bad  practice. Not less than 25 to 30  feet apart is good planting distance for Bella Coola. Stone  fruit (cherries and plums) may  go 18 to 25 feet.  Pruning.  (5) Careful attention must be  paid to ��������� this. Judicious work  must be done in both fall and  winter. Young trees should  especially be "stopped" in the  fall, about the middle of September. Thinning out the wood is  the chief essential.in the valley  as well as heading back. Older  trees need much thinning. Fruit-  wood needs light and air. The  weaker shoots may be shortened,  not cut right out, so as to form  "fruit spurs." k,  Thinning  (6) To procure first-'ciass fruit,  apples should be thinned to about  4 inches apart, never allow- apples to touch.  Picking Fruit.  (7) This should be done care-  fally to avoid bruising. Bruised  fruit won't keep. Apples should  not be shaken from the tree but  picked and placed in buckets or  boxes.' More suitable receptacles  may be made" or purchased having a soft bottom.  I recommend the following  varieties as well Suited to conditions; existing in the valley::'k  Crab tApples, Transcendent  Hyslop." Pears, Bartlett,.Box,  and Ciairgeau, etc. Cherries  (sour), Olivet,; Morel lo, Montmorency, etc. Cpierries (sweet)  Royal Anne, Bing, etc; Plums  and Prunes; Victoria, Pond's  Seedling, Italian prune.

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  prudent policy of advertising in the publicpress.  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.
