Unofficial reports  reached here this afternoon that  railway traffic between Bulgaria  ar>d Roumania had been stopped.  The- Bulgarian and Roumanian  legation had no information that  such was the case.  Italian Battleship Destroyed  Paris, Sep. 28. A despatch to  the Havas Agency from Brindisi  says: '"Fire which was followed  by an explosion has occurred on  board theltalian battleship Bene-  dicto Brin, 8 officers and 379  marines have been saved thus  far. Rear-admiral Rubin De  Cesvin is among the dead, the  fire was accidental. The battleship Benedicto Brin was a vessel  of 13,427 tons, and in peace time  carried a complement of 720 men.  She was completed in 1904 at a j  cost of $5,750,000.  German Severity  In view of  the record-breaking  crops  harvested  it is expected  that the  creditable  displays of  former years will  even be surpassed.    What will lend an additional attraction  this time is  the presence of Mr. H. O. English, so'l and crop inspector, sent  here  by the provincial department of agriculture,   who will  give the farmers the benefit of  his   knowledge   in    respect   to  things   agricultural.     At   this  writing  it  is not known to us  what he intends to do for the  people; but our readers may rest  assured it will well repay them  to come to the exhibition and  find out for themselves.    Some  of the farmers have entered into  a  competition   to see who can  raise the best crop of potatoes  on  a given area.     It is understood that Mr. English will be  the judge as to who has attained  the best results.  We again remind our readers  that at the fair, there will be  efforts made to raise money for  the Red Cross Fund. It is conceded  that Bella Coola has, in  gaged in mild curing and salting  salmon in thatsection of Alaska.  He was now on his way to his  home at Ferndale, Washington.  Capt. Robertson has many  friends at Bella Coola, some of  whom were among his schoolmates,, and which he had not  met for thirty years. He left  Norway while quite young and  lived in the State of Minnesota  for sixteen years before coming  to the Pacific Coast. Here the  captain has been operating a fish  curing business for the last  twelve years.  He availed himself of his stay  here to visit Hagensborg and expressed himself as very well  pleased with what he saw in the  line of agriculture, the skipper  being once in the occupation of  farming himself was therefore  competent to judge of the possibilities of the valley, tie took  away many specimens from the  settler's gardens for the purpose  of showing h i s neighbors in  Washington what the Bella Coola  soil can produce.  When the Enos reaches Bellingham, she will have travelled  seven thousand miles since leaving last spring. She left here  for the south Monday morning.  .The small building used as a  governmentoffice has been moved  from its former site near Mr.  McFarlane's residence to Mr. W.  Sutherland's homestead named  "The Shack." Without any further description everybody will  be able to find this place, especially if they have any wages due  them from the government. Mr.  H. G. Anderson will, for very  good reasons, be found on the  premises without fail.  'proportion to wealth and popu-  Amsterdam, Sept. 28.

In-the  evening a concert will be given.  H is hoped and expected that all  who can will patronize these undertakings, as all the proceeds  d over to the Red  will be  Cross.  turnet  Even in these really troublous  times people will deem it consistent to have a day of thanksgiving. Those who believe in an  all wise ruler will acknowledge  that we have not rendered the  homage due to him and therefore  are not entitled to the many  benefits received.  Our government in acknowledgment of the gratitude due a kind  providence has appointed Monday, October 11, Thanksgiving  Day. It is not unlikely that more  real thanksgiving will be offered  this time than at more prosperous seasons.  There has been quite a flurry  in-our peaceful burg the last few  days because of a fierce controversy between two of our prominent citizens in regard to a certain water privilege. One of the  parties has been taking water  for the use of his hotel from the  other party's land without having had any agreement as to the  compensation to be given. This  question has ��������� now entered an  acute stage, the parties being  unable to -roach' an agreement.  The consequence was that the  owner of the land where the  water is obtained, cut the wafer  pipe thus depriving the hotel of  a much needed commodity. We  understand law is being inycked  and in the meantime the thirst  of the people at the hotel cannot  be quenched; this being a prohibition town nothing can be procured in lieu of water.  Owing to the change of the  departure of the weekly mail  from Bella Coola it has been  found advisable to change the  day of the publication of the  Courier from Saturday to Thursday. As'it is possible this will  be effective only the winter  months the day of the week at  the head of the paper will remain as before. Anything intended for publication in a certain week's issue must, reach  this office not later than Monday  of that week.  Mrs. J. VV. Macdonald and her  daughter, Bertha, left Mr. Macdonald to his own devices at the  beginning of last week and wended their way rejoicing to the  wilds of Noosatsum to visit Mr.  and Mrs. W. Stephenson in their  native lair. It seems from late  reports that the feat was accomplished successfully and may  therefore be repeated to the  mutual satisfaction of all concerned, not forgetting Mr. Macdonald and Ralph.  The fishing for salmon is now  in its last stages. The fishermen are still making satisfactory  catches, but all the cans at the  John Widsten the fishery officer, has returned from the  haunts of the salmon at the headwaters of the Bella Coola river.  He refuses to publish the result  of his observations" because he,  as a well experienced public servant, knows he must first render  a report to his superior officer.  In the meantime we shall try to  endure the suspense.  The digging of the chief product of the-valley, namely, potatoes, is now going on at every  farm.

The Young People's Missionary  Society held its" meeting at the  Lower Bella Coola schoolhouse  last Sunday evening. In spite  of the fact that many of our  young men are yet engaged in  fishing and therefore could not  be present, yet a goodly number  of people was present, mostly  of the younger generation.  The meeting was presided over  by Rev. H. Sageng, president of  the society. The program was  almost entirely performed by the  young people, and consisted of  readings, vocal music, with guitar or organ accompaniment, and  speeches. Rev. H. Sageng conducted the meeting in the English language and nearly every  item on the program was rendered .in that tongue.  While there was nothing elaborate about the exercises, yet  they were of a character to make j  the meeting a success from almost any point of view. Such  gatherings have an elevating influence and should be encouraged.  We should be glad if the next  meeting could be held at the  Mackenzie school.  Harry Grainger is engaged in  fitting up his winter quarters.  He has rented the Gledhill place  for, as it is understood, a number of years. We are very glad  to note that although his stay in  the place has been comparatively  short he is so well pleased with  its possibilities-'that he" has decided to remain here. Itis hoped  that he will be able to find a  companion to share the quarters  which he is renovating so attractively. We have not as yet learned how soon he will be''at home"  to his many friends, but we can  assure them we shall not forget  to let them know in due time.  Olaf Fosback and John Johnson have started on a trip to "the  interior. Itis their inter tion to  interview the different owners of  horses in that neck of the woods  with a view of trading off an. inferior animal for a good one. We  hope they will be successful in  this praiseworthy enterprise.  As noted elsewhere on this  page, Mr. H. O. English, B. A.',  R S. A., provincial soil and erop  instructor is now in the valley  in his official capacity. ',  As the government is desirous  of obtaining data concerning the  area of land suitable for agriculture, the quality of the land and  the number of acres under cultivation in the valley, the object  of Mr. English's,visit is to get  such information. He will also  gather statistics of all the crops  raised this year, the number of  poultry and other domestic animals, etc. His official duties are  many, and we are unable to name  them all; but there is one which  every farmer in the valley right  now should give him an opportunity to exercise.  He will answer all questions  relating to the problems of the  farmer; there may be conundrums which he will not be able  to answer, but that does not  prevent him from being both  willing and anxious to impart all  the information he can.  The S. S. Coquitlam landed at  the wharf early Wednesday  morning, and agreeably surprised the inhabitants of our valley  by bringing a large batch of  mail. \W-  J  ff  tfSS  lap s*i������~  SI  2  BELLA^COOLA  COURIER  Saturdc  Octal  er  Thej Courier  Published Weekly at Bella Coola by  the Bella Coola Publishing Co.

' Ithas for a longtime been acknowledged that our methods of  ,���������; utilizing,.. developing  and   conserving; some of- our chief rear, d    "A proof that the Dominion gov-  ernment is becoming aliye.tb.the'  bring better results than hitherto.    We must all of 'us get our  living from the products of the  soil and the sea; and on this continent there is abundance of both  that can produce all  we  need.  That being the case, why should  there be scarcity of the necessaries of life? It must be because  things are not managed rightly.  A chance of introducing, a better  system has been very difficult in  the past, because of the" general  prosperity.  People who are well off do not  interest themselves very-much  about  reforms.     A, few cranks  and impracticals, amid the scdff-  ings and sneers of their surroundings,   may   shout   themselves  hoarse about the need of reforms,-  but   without  apparent  results,  while the rank and file of the  comfortably situated people are  busy obtaining a living, amassing-  vvealth, and pursuing pleasures  along the established lines.    But  now  there   is a  change,   ideae  which cranks have advocated are  now being given respectful consideration.    Their pioneer work  is beginning to bear fruit.    Prohibition, one of the reforms "the  long-haired men and short-haired  women" have worked for so long,  issweepingvon to victory in states  and provinces in quick succession  and before very long we believe  that-British Columbia will 'join  the phalanx of prohibition states.  But this other reform, of educating and assisting" the farmers  according.to the-latest and best  methods is also looming,up large  and we will discuss'that in-the  trade may thus be extended  We are anticipating the best  results from the investigations  of *the proposed royal commission  and hope the government will be  able to apply them in a practical  way.  o    o    o     o    o  The Way of Oar  Government.  ��������� It seems that .it is -not only in  greater ability to carry on war  that our enemies excel, but also    in'the'matter of dealing with  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES ; political criminals, as the follow-  ing story shows:  Increased -Production.  ���������sources1 are? antiquated  ' wasteful, "ahoktherefore "do hot  .."bring the best results.    We have,  . on, several -occasions, advocated  - our. .columns ; the necessity for  - the government to adopt a sys-  ''ctem by which; the farmers could  be "educated ,in methods which  would  bring! maximum results  ; .from, the means at hand; that it  -   should also find ways of lending  assistance wherever it would be  advantageous, and in that way  ^develop   the   country   on   lines  which would jadd immensely to  its wealth and general prosperity, j  We have pointed out that the  United States government has  inaugurated a system of educating and assisting the farmers,  which is proving a great success  wherever it is introduced. And  we have reasoned that a system  which is practical and successful  a few miles south of us, in a  Country where conditions are  nearly similar to ours, it should  yield the same results here. It  is a good policy, to learn from  the experience of others. Let  us be willing to learn, because  there are many things we do not  know; the prevalent conditions  establish this|beyond dispute.  The lean ye^rs are upon us, a  great calamity has struck a world  proud of its progress, its achievements, its wealth. We are being  humbled. It is a hard discipline  but we hope ijt may prove beneficial. Poverty and distress are  found to a greater extent than  we have ever seen before.  The necessity has, therefore,  been forced upon us to stop and  take stock of; our resources and  find out if it is possible to so develop, conserve and use them as to  fact .that it can and must find  further means than those hither-  to employed to relieve a situation  which is intolerable may, be seen  in the large appropriations-made  to the provinces for the advancement of agriculture. British Columbia received a grant of $100,-  000 for that purpose this year.  Another proof is foundjn.the  following article copied from one  of our exchanges:  A royal  commission is' to be  creased agricultural production  in the.Dominion, together with  the .related, questions of wider  markets, further employment for  the unemployed, etc. - The commission is'to be appointed at the  recommendation of the prime  .ninisterand in response ctd a request made by the Congress of  Mayors which visited the capital  some weeks ago.  A minute,of council has been  issued outlining the reasons for  che appointment of. the commission and the questions it is to  consider. In connection with  opportunities for increased agricultural production, the following  considerations are advanced:  (1) Improved methods of production with a view to a better  return to the producer.; (2) assisting this purpose by proper  instruction and demonstration;  (3) increasing* the acreage under  production; (4). stimulating and  encouraging co-operation among,  the producers ; .(5)- providing  cold-storage and abattoir facili-  ties/ - ...  _. The minute of council setting  forth reasons: calls .attention. to  the.desirability; of..manufacturing products into the form in  which they.'-will; .be , consumed;  commends the principle of cooperation; asks for consideration  of unemployment problems and  the employment of soldiers after,  the war, and concludes with this  expression:  "It seems reasonable that under, the conditions which.:have  developed during the past six  months opportunities will .arise  forwidening and extending our  markets, to the advantage not  only of Canada, but of the coun-  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co.

Frauds of a'similar nature but  on a much larger scale have,  within the year, been committed  against the government of Canada, but the government acted,  as if indifferent until a great  public outcry compelled the government to. institute an investigation which is not yet concluded.  The partisans of the government  sneered at those of the opposition  for criticizing the reluctance  shown to proceed in the matter,  and accused them of being no  better themselves, as if that  w,ould be an extenuation of the  frauds committed.  We know of a case where the  government of British Columbia  did not stop'at finding fault with  one of its officers for calling attention to a case'of padding of a  pay sheet by one of its trusted  servants; but dismissed "the informant forthwith on the ground,  presumab]y,'' that he meddled  with politics:  and.be it known  ������������������������   '��������� T .-.1.'        -i - . -  that our highly respectable representative found it in harmony  with his principles, or lack of  them, to approve of the government's action, while the wrongdoer remained in office and in the  high confidence of both the representative and the government.  We conclude, therefore, certain  kinds of criminal acts committed  by the government are, ignored  entirely and the act of calling  attention to such is condemned.

According to the opinion of the  provincial inspector of fruit  pests, the farmers will soon be  able to realize better prices for  their potatoes. We print the following from the News-Advertiser  of September 11th:  I Failure of the potato crop in  ! many parts of the Northwest pro-  ; vinces, coupled with the heavy  i  'demand from the Antipodes for  | tubers, will probably result in a  j heavy demand being made upon  the potato growers of British  Columbia, according to reports  received by Mr. Thos. Cunningham, provincial inspector of fruit  pests.  ���������'While the planting has been  much heavier this season on the  prairies than in past yeais, 1 am  advised that the potato crop is  not a very satisfactory one,"  said Mr. Cunningham. "Coupled  with the heavy demand for potatoes coming in from Autralia,  this means that British Columbia  will be called upon to fill the  A-anls of a large market. 1 know  of one local firm which has contracts on hand now for supplying  no less than GOO tons for the.

Box 863  EDMONTON, Alta.  157 McDougall Ave.  1  CD]  [  1  C  \Xl7HAT person so happy and contented as the prosperous farmer?  \X7HAT person so independent?  \\7HAT ambition more noble than to  be a producer of   the necessaries  of life?  Bella  Coola   farmers are independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  ���������"THE 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.

Boots for Small Men, Etc.  Inefficiency in a political position" does not meet with the quick  retribution it (Toes in a private  busyness concern. It seems that  every negligence, every inattention to duty, practised by a public servant is condoned and any  one not so charitably disposed is  frowned down upon as a chronic  kicker.  Toronto Saturday Night calls'  attention to mismanagement  by parties having.to do with the  supplying <of clothing to our  soldiers. It is safe to say that  any ordinary employer finding  an employee guilty of looking  after his work in such a slip-shod  arid.inefficient way as this Dom-  inion officer is accused of would  quickly find another man to take  his place.  But under our political system  the official who is to blame will  receive no reprimand, he will  either hold his job indefinitely  or else be promoted to a better  paying position.  There are in store  some five  thousand pairs of boots, of the  size ."eleven,"  and   some   ten  thousand pairs of.the size "five  and a half."   But, according to  our information, there, is a lamentable   shortage   of   the "sizes  ranging between these extremes.  Ordinary-sized men with ordinary  sized feet have to go on drilling  in their old boots or their bedroom slippers, while the depart-,  ment carefully prbvide's for recruits with.the feet of a chorus  girl or, a North of Ireland policeman.      .  Another curious feature of the  i  provisions made by the gent's1  furnishing section of the Militia,  Department^ that there are no1  small-sized uniforms in the stores  department. There are boots'  for little men���������ten thousand of  them no less, but there are no  clothes for them.;   An(d obviously even the smallest soldier has  to be.dressed   to some  extent  above his "ankles.    The height  restrictions-for   recruits   have  been gradually lowered, but with  no corresponding diminution of  the height of their clothes.   Of  course, the small  soldier,   if a  handy man with a needle, can  put various tucks and reefs into  his garments.     It is  naturally  much easier to shorten a pair of  trousers than to lengthenthem.  But  this   accordion-pleating  is  apt to detract from the dashing  and military elfect of the uni-  form, and to convey a rather un  pleasant impression that the uniform in question had been made  by a woman who came in to sew  by the day.  ON THE FENCE.  With the exception of the Vancouver World, all the dailies  coming to our office are very re-  ticient on the subject of prohibition. When they do mention it  they advise caution and that the  question must be carefully considered before an opinion is  fornied. As there are many  people arrayed on either side it  will be very hard for these dailies  to come to a, decision without  causing offense.  A decided economy in fuel consumption is  effectedj>y using nickelled steel in.  Ttenjfe  oven. It attracts and holds the  heat far better than most oven  materials.
