C. has  been fully demonstrated by the  the number of prizes which the  Bella Coola exhibit accounted for  at the recent Prince Rupert Exhibition..  Owing to the difficulty in getting produce from Bella Coola to  Prince Rupert on account of the  necessary transhipment, the local  farmers were naturally somewhat  discouraged and consequently the  exhibit was small.  The following list  of   prizes  won by our farmers is sufficient  proof, however, that though the  Bella Coola exhibit was small the  quality was of a high standard:  Apples: 0. T.

Widsten, who cornpli-;  mented the valley upon its dis- j  play  and   remarked   upon   the  steadily increasing area   under  cultivation.   After welcoming all  our visitors and deprecating that  the weather should have kept a  few away, a program of music  was entered upon.  During the interval in the program Mr. William  Manson, the,  Provincial   member,    who   had I  come in specially for the occa- j  sion, thenaddressed the gathering,  remarking that he felt he  could honestly  compliment the  inhabitants of  the valley uoon  their enterprise, the conditions  and the prospects of further advancement.  Mr. and Mrs. T. Saugstad gave  a violin and organ duet, Miss B.  Fraser and others contributed to  the general enjoyment, the music  being thoroughly appreciated.  At the close Messrs Tomlinson  and Walker, judges of the exhibits, expressed their pleasure  at being present and offered  hearty congratulations at what  had been already accomplished,  with the hope that any assistance  they could give was at the disposal of any member of either the  Farmers' Institute or of the community.

On accountof the difference in date of the exhibition  this year naturally the exhibits in certain branches were hardly in the same state of forwardness as last year, but. taken all  round the produce on exhibit would more than hold its own  with the best of any other community, and would, undoubtedly, be a credit to a district of vastly greater area than is contained in our valley.  Particular attention was paid to some-tomatoes, which, in  their size and condition came as a surprise to even many of the  farmers themselves. A squash exhibited was, from its size,  fit weighed more than fifty pounds,) a most distinctive and  striking object. But it is somewhat invidious for us to single  out special articles; for, we living in the valley have always  know of what our soil and our farmers are capable.  It is to the outside world we wish to convey the same information, and the people of Bella Coola will be glad to learn that  a large sample of the produce of the valley will be sent to Vancouver and exhibited in the windows of Mr. Martin Ravey.  The Women's N eedlewort\ Par-Excellence.  Particular mention must be made of the specimens of needlework exhibited by numerous ladies. The taste and beauty of  the Hardanger work above all could not be excelled by any  exhibition in the world. In this department also it is questionable whether any community anywhere could compete with  Bella Coola a fact which might lead to this becoming a profitable branch of valley industry.  Messrs Walker and Tomlinson, the judges, are respectively  agricultural and horticultural government experts, and the  standard shown certainly came as a surprise to them.  Bread, grain of every variety, vegetables of all kinds, preserves, butter, floral displays, all came up to the level of what  is now an exceedingly high average, and the method of arrangement so that all the exhibits should have fair play could  hardly be improved upon.  from this run until further notice.  The steamship Venture docked  here Sunday morning bringing  the following passengers: Mr.  and Mrs. H. T. Walker, The Misses Crawford, Messrs J. Nelson,  J. Forseth, M. E. Graser, G. H.  Graser, B. F. Jacobsen and P.  Evanson.  Mr. H. T. Walker, provincial  government agriculturist, accompanied   by   Mrs.   Walker   have  BASKET SOCIAL.  Under the energetic supervision of Mrs. Livingstone the  ladies of Bella Coola held a Basket Social in the Mackenzie  School on Friday the 2Gth inst.  The function was held on behalf of the funds, of the W.C.T.-  U., of which Mrs. Livingstone  is travelling organizer.

There was a very enjoyable  program of singing, the songs  rendered by Miss Roberts and  the recitation by Mr. Lord beir.g  thoroughly appreciated. Good  prices were paid for all the baskets; the daintiness of their decoration and the tastefulness of  their adornment made a beauti-  note of color in the useful but  otherwise prosaic looking building. Mr. Gallienne acted with  his usual persuasive ability as  auctioneer. At the close of the  meeting Mrs. Livingtone presented the Development League  with $20 as a subscription towards the funds for erecting a  hall.    Geoffrey K.

Coastal Communications  The end of a road or the end  of a river, is a good place to settle  ���������if < you. choose' the right end.  In Bella Coola we are at the ends  both'of a road and a river; the  river,   however,   is   somewhat  longer than   the   road,  though  there is no absolute need-that  this condition should persist for  ever.    It remains evidently with  the Bella Coola people to-point  out to its government some very  obvious truths.    Needless to say  when, these truths are pointed  out, and when it is explained to  the government that good will  result to Bella   Coola and. the  Province   from   carrying  these  truths into practical execution,  the government will at once see  that action is taken.    We know  that: it always has been so.   It  is so!   Will anyone affirm that if  the government is shown how  the settler may be "benefitted  that the government will refuse  the settler anything?  When the towns. "have   been  satisfied; when real estate dabblers and speculators in Vancouver,   and  particularly  Victeria,  have been fully contented: when  the   great   railways,  and   purchasers who can hold up a few  million acr.es���������till the settler is  forced to pay their price; when,  in fact, the big interests of every  kind, the members of the government themselves, the friends  of the members of the government, and when the friends of  their friends; when all have been  fully   fed   and   the   fragments  thrown   to,���������well ���������Mr. Matson  might   explain   about  some of  those   fragments ��������� then,   after  these, the settler is the undying  and unwearying concern of our  paternal, government.    Nothing  indeed is too good for the settler:  and  that is precisely what he  gets���������nothing! or less.    For he  has to pay to defend himself or  his property from bears.  At least we know precisely  what to expect, when Premier  McBride has the effrontery to  declare that "it is not the policy  of the government, to .which..he  has the honor to belong, to encourage settlers to flock into the  country."  Evidently,  unless the  settler  asks he will not get���������he may not  get even then; but it is worth the  trial.   A government, even the  present   Conservative    govern-^  ment, is only the trustee of the  people.    The people.do the work,  they make the money, and they  allow the' government to spend  it for 'them.    It rests with the  people to see that the money they  earn and bring into, this country  is spent properly.    A "good business man puts his money into his  business���������a good business people  put their money into their country  ���������they develop it and encourage  its industries.    The interests of  a'country and the interests of. the  people "are inseparable���������.the interests of their government also  should be inseparable from those  of  the  country.    It is  for the  people to see that this is perceived and acted upon.  The first need, of any country  is free communication between  its different areas and with its  neighbors;.and freedom of communication means numerous connecting links:    British Columbia  with   a   coastline   as   great   as  that of any province or country  in the world, with fisheries whose  importance  demands numerous  ports, with minerals and lumber  and incipient industries  which  which must all depend for their  prosperity upon easy access to  the coast:   British Columbia  which must become one of" the  maritime powers of the world on  account,   not only   of   its   own  value and importance, but because it has all Canada behind and  all Asia and Australasia in front;  British Columbia has only two  .routes leading to its coast.    Two  lines of trave,l to carry the wealth  of half the world���������one around  Vancouver, one to Prince Rupert.  In all the circumstances a third  route would not be excessive;  and this third route is waiting���������  patiently  waiting.      The map  shows it clearly, a few settlers  have talked of it; the government  ���������the Conservative government  (which knows everything) also  knows it���������must know it.    The  Courier will never cease to urge  it until it is an-accompjished iact.  Two hundred thousand dollars  Have been spent upon 45 miles  of road in Bella Coola. Two hundred thousand dollars spent from  the end of the Bella Coola road  to the end of the wagon road at  Tatla Lake which connects with  Alexis, Creek and therefrom to  the Cariboo road, will give British Columbia its third route to  the markets of the world.    :  If it' were twenty million to  Mackenzie arid Mann we should  have, more hope of' its prompt  disbursement.  It is not our fault,  however, that oniy $200,000 are  needed.    Understood of course  that they   are  properly spent.  The advantages of such a road  are too evident;   to   need  even  statement���������there woujd then be  settlers from Bella Coola along  the road into the interior���������they  would be able to market their  produce and transact   business  while  developing the   country.  The difficulties in  constructing  such a road are nil: even a road  foreman   could   do   the   work.  There is only one part���������at the  precipice ��������� where   actual   road  making and building.is required.  This road is necessary, it would  be cheap, it would benefit the  settler, the community, the province and Canada.  I We presume, therefore, that  since everything is ������or it and  nothing against it���������it will NOT  be done.  reason for the faith that is in  him.' It is true that in politics,  as in religion, one is 'born to the  faith,;  "But the Liberalism or the  Conservatism that continues to  be founded on the accident and  prejudice of birth, that believes  in 'my party and my father's  party right or wrong' is the real  cause of thediscouraging inertia  of public ��������� opinion that of ten allows the self-interested few to  practically control elections and  governments, that prevents or  retards reform and makes of a  free democracy a bureaucratic  tyranny. Liberalism is a positive, reasoned belief, and eyery  Liberal should be able, apart from  opinions as to the, government  or the issues of the day, to justify his faith according to cardinal  principles of good government."

It is well-known that  the Indians from the Interior are  many of them afflicted with phthisis or consumption of the lungs  ���������and consumption of course is  simply   tuberculosis.      Without  going into too unpleasant details  it may be stated that these Indian camps, after the departure  of the Indians, leave the ground  and   vegetation   teeming"', with  germs.     This   applies   also   to  Hagensborg where there is frequently an Indian camp at the  cross roads.

Nobody objects to him talking on this subject there or in Tunis or Tripoli  ! if he wants to.     But we have  ! criticized him for confining his  1 advocacy of a white British Columbia to speeches   instead of  using his influence towards bringing   this   consummation   about.  Why  does  he not prevent the  employment of Asiatics in coal  .mines?   Here  is  something  he  can do. The laws of the province,  which he is sworn to enforce, afford him a striking opportunity  to prove his sincerity on the question.    Again, why has he not attempted to induce Mr. Borden to  carry out the policy of which he  vaunts himself so ardent a champion?   Has he made any representation in that quarter, where  he is supposed to carry considerable weight?   Can it be that the I  solid seven, the pert'ervid exclu-  sicnists of a few years ago, decline to back him up? -Victoria  Times.  MRS. J.
