Prohibition is an established  fact in numerous states, provinces, countries and communities  throughout the world, but the  common sense of the people has  not to our knowledge in a single  instance allowed the outlawed  traffic any compensation.  It is really an effrontery to ask  it; and it is only those whose interests are bound up in the traffic or whose ��������� appetites demand  its continuance, that are clamoring for it. We do not"re-imburse  a man for the losses he may  meet in stopping to rob and ruin  his customers, even if he has  been,licensed to do so.  This is one argument against  compensation, but there are several others to which we may revert later on.  Why Compensation?  ' The liqudr interests see the  coming of |the   day   when   the  people will riot allow a business  . in their midst, which is doing no  goodj but, is continually tearing  ~ down what' others are building  up.    -: ���������;  In their ^distress of mind at  this, to them, gloomy prospect  they are now appealing to the  generosity and fairmindedness  of the public for compensation;  they want the .public to reimburse them. for losses sustained  in ceasing to despoil and ruin  people.  So far they have existed only  on sufferance, they have in regard to their business been in  -the same position as a merchant,  who. is conducting business in  - rented quarters. He may have  occupied the place for generations, built up an honorable and  prosperous business in the neighborhood and been a real asset to  the community. But the owner  for, what to him seems good  reasons serves notice on the  merchant that after a certain  date he shall want the premises  Vacated,,   j  This breaking up of the merchant's business may be his financial ruin, but the courts would  not allow him any compensation.  And things as bad as this hap-  pen right along in all walks of  life. People from no fault of  .their own are thrown out of employment aftd deprived of their  livelihood, but-there is no compensation.  If there is| no compensation for  others wheii they lose, their income, either from loss of business or employment, it does not  seem reasonable that this business, the liquor business, should  be entitled to damages when the  country decides it will not renew  the license for it to copduct  business within its border, on its  Co-operation of a Different  Kind.  In these days.the principle of  co-operation   presents so  many  advantages that it is often discussed in public papers and the  press.   .We have all heard of the  great success of co-operation on  the Rochdale principle developed  in England.-There, a few poor  weavers started a store with a'  wheelbarrow load of merchandise  and in.a few. years it grew into  a great, business. . The reason it  prospered was not because the  promoters were experienced business men, but because their enterprise contained a sound principle.  Attempts to start business on  the same lines on this side of the  Atlantic have invariably failed,  at least as far as we. have learned. It would be idle on our part  to discuss the reasons for this.  We may have our theories, but  they are of no value because they  offer no remedy.  In view of the many failures in  co-operative mercantile enterprises we are compelled to look  in other directions for the solution  of how the farmer is to obtain  his"goods with as small a tribute  to the middleman  as possible.  He has of late years turned to  the departmental stores which,  as far as Bella Coola is concerned,  are far away and to deal with  ihem^is very cumbersome; and  at the same time it is not exactly  doing justice to the local merchant. It must be conceded that  the local merchant fills a-real  need in the community and cannot be spared without great inconvenience. .  He keeps a stock in the neighborhood , which, always can be  drawed on without any long delay. He as a.rule will accommodate his customers with credit  for shorter or longer periods, an  accommodation on his part which  is seldom appreciated. "  He must get accustomed to the  practice of the very persons he  has accommodated and who probably do not pay up in reasonable  time, passing him by and purchasing large quantities of goods  for cash' at the departmental  store.  These are not ideal-conditions  and there ought to be a remedy;  and we think one'couldbe found,  if the persons concerned would  meet in an accommodating spirit  and discuss the problem.  At this point we would like to  make it plain that this article is  not inspired because of-the close  connection   between  this paper  .and a mercantile institution, but  is written by the editor with the  sole desire of offering a solution  to this problem which may prove  of benefit to all concerned.  The farmer,, as well as others,  must economize, and when he  finds he can save money by sending away for the articles he needs  it is not reasonable to expect him  to do otherwise.  We believe if the local merchant was treated by his customers  in the same way they treat the  department stores, viz: cash payment with the order,  that he  would be able to reduce his prices.  If he could depend upon receiving the bulk of the local trade,  this would bet another item making reductions possible.  If all who are interested would  see how much they are dependant on each other and how much  better it would become in every  way if they could work together,  we really believe that if they,  in such a spirjt, would meet and  discuss (and not cuss) things the  farmers and the merchants would  by each yielding a few points, be  able to take care of all the mercantile business at home without  helping to build up institutions  in far away places.  Our advice is,' therefore, get  together as soon as possible.  o     o     o . o     ������  Interesting and Distressing.  On account of part of our mail  failing to reach Bella Coola we  are'not in receipt of a. full account  of the disclosures in the case������oi  The Pacific Coal Mines, involving  Hon. H. E. Young, Provincial  Secretary and Minister of Education in the Provincial government.  It seems to be established that  $105,000 was paid over, to Dr.  Young in the shape of shares in  the Pacific Coal Mines Company.  This money was; according to  testimony given in the case, giv-  en to secure favorable considera:  tion from the government for  privileges applied for by the company. * '-  If the case is such as outlined  above we fully agree with the  sentiment expressed in the following-editorial .from the Vancouver Sun of the 20th "instant:  "Dr. Henry Esson Young is  still minister of education and  provincial secretary. He is the  man who received $105,000 worth  of stock gratis in a company doing business with the government.  , "Dr. Young is known as the  Hon.

Brit-  iist. Columbia was the only province not represented.  ������ scrutinizing the different  newspapers coming to our office,  ���������ve read appeals to the people tc  make sacrifices of various kinds  to assist, in carrying on the war  '*i������d in relieving the resultant  distress. And we -believe the  people'are rising to the gravity  >f the situation and responding  nobly to these appeals.  We may be mistaken and we  jope we are, but we cannot re-  ���������all a single instance where oui  m'ovincial government has done  ; >ne act to render assistance or  i  i to relieve the situation.  The reason for this aloofness  we may think we can guess, but  he that as it may, in any case it  is open to severe criticism.  In the matter of the conference  referred to it would not have  been very hard for the government to have taken a part by  sending a representative. Hon.  W. J. Bowser is touring the eastern provinces at the people's  expense, for what reason will  probably never be explained to  the taxpayers. But whatever he  j has to do, it seemingly must be  'more urgent that ordinary government matters, because he  : could not spare the time to at-  | tend the conference although he  was requested to do so by his  chief, the premier.  Even if the conference carried  on its  work  just as  efficiently  without   our   government's   cooperation as with it, yet it would  have shown our keen interest in  what concerns our province af  well as the others, if Hon. Mr.  Bowser had spared a day or two  of his valuable time in at least  listening   to   what   the   others  planned,  and   promised  the  cooperation   of   the   province  in  which beholds so high a position.  We are really coming round to  i the conviction that our province  'is so involved  financially,  that  its  revenue   is   not   sufficiently  large to pay .the ordinary running  ; expenses and the interest of its  1 debts.    It has nothing to spare  for the relief of distress beyond  what was voted by the last legislature.   When therestof the provinces through their representatives, and the Dominion through  Premier Borden himself, met in  contVlvmV to plan how to care  ,\���������-ihe disabled soldiers returning   from   the   defense of   our  homes,   our   government    finds  neither time nor means to take  part.

AATHAT person so happy and contented as the prosperous farmer?  \JLTHAT person so independent?  \A/HAT 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.  1  CD  ���������">-<"*(  ��������� ft  POLARINE"  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.

ADVERTISERS-  Now is the time to keep  your name before the  public. No manuf actur -  er or wholesalehouse can  afford to:let slip the opportunity! of increased  sales that public advertising brings.  DEAL ESTATE booms in the  * cities have come and gone.  People are beginning to flock to  the country.: The North-West  Coast of British Columbia offers  opportunities for all. Did not  know, is no 'excuse. Investors  should keep /posted on developments by reading the "Courier."'  Last week  we   published  an  article by A. H. Tomlinson, assistant provincial horticulturist,  on the subject of "use of lime on  the land."    He knows the importance of the use of lime for  the land in  Bella Coola and the  islands on the northern coast of  our province, and we can from  experience corroborate his opinion in that respect.    There may  be some of our readers who are  not aware of the need of lime on  the soij they cultivate and Mr.  Tomlinson,   therefore,   requests  us to publish the following article  on "Methods of testing-for acidity of the soil with litmus paper";  ��������� The usual test for ac'dity or  sourness in a soil is blue litmus  paper; if this is turned red the  soil, we  may  conclude,-is sour,  is practically destitute of carbonate of lime and will be benefitted  by liming or an  application  of  marl or ground limestone.  Blue and red litmus paper may  be purchased, at.1any drug store.  It is very cheap and it is well to  get the best quality obtainable.  It can frequently be bought in  small books containing twenty-  five to fifty strips of the paper^  each'about one-half inch wide by  two to three inches long, protected, by a heavy paper or ..cardboard   cover.     These   "books"  are a.very convenient and suitable form in which to have the  test paper.   They should be kept  in a clean, dry, 'preferably "wide-  mouth, well-corked bottle. When  tearing or cutting out a'strip of j  the litmus paper for use, it is  desirable to use a pair of forceps  (or some other simple instument  as scissors), as the paper is sensitive andthe fingers may cause  its reddening.  The test may be made in several ways:'we describe two, both  of which are simple and, if care-!able at a druggist's) or if, such  fully carried out, reliable. lis not readily.obtainable, a piece  1. Take "up, by means of a jof clean, white blotting paper  spade or trowel, a little of the j cut to fit the bottom of the tumb-  surfacesoil from, say, half a doz-'ler.    On this put a few ounces  en different places of the area to  be examined and mix well, using  the., trowel or a  clean  piece of  board.    Do not handle the soil.  Take a small  quantity  (asfew  ounces)' of the mixed soil and,  putting it in a clean cup or tumbler, pour on a little boiled water  and  stir with a clean  piece of  stick or spoon until the mass is  of the consistency of a very thick  paste.    Into this "mud" press  a piece of litmus paper by means  of a small stick or the back of  the knife,  inserting the paper  until one-half or two-thirds- of  its length is within "the  pasty  mass.     At the end of   fifteen  minutes, carefully draw out the  paper and note if the part that  has been in contact with the soil  has turned red.    If so, the soil  is acid.'  2. Place a strip of blue litmus  in the bottom of a clean, dry,  glass tumbler (preferably flat-  bottomed) and -over it place a  round  "filter paper"'.-(purchas-  of the soil to be tested, collected  and mixed as already described,  and pour on sufficient boiled  water to moisten or wet the soil  thoroughly throughout its mass,  but no more,, and set aside for  half an hour or longer. To examine the litmus paper, the'  tumbler is inverted; viewed  through the bottom of the glass-  its color will be well brought out  against the white filter paper.  As a check and to ensure that  any change in color may not be  due to acidity of the water or  filter paper used, a blank test  should be made in the same manner, but using no' soil.  There Will Be No Loss.  * -  The opponents of prohibition  ask how the government can  afford to lose an annual revenue  of $30,000,000 collected from the  liquor traffic. The answer is:  The government will recuperate  this loss from the $100,000,000  now being wasted every year for  liquor.
