The outlook the  day previous for its success was  not favorable, to say the least.  There was a steady downpour  nearly all day; but the day following proved all the fears for the  .-success of the enterprise to be  entirely unrealized. The clear  sky and  bright sunshine made  during the day testified to universal enjoyment.  The exhibits were placed in  the building erected for the purpose on the ground, and by their  size and excellence testified to  the fertility of the soil, the favor-  ableness of the climate and the  industry and intelligence of the  exhibitors.

The  gathering   was  presided  over by Mr. Albert Hammer; and  without going into detail, which  would require columns, we will  say that the program throughout  was given   in   genuine  artistic-  style and performed  by all the  participants in a highly creditable  manner.    It is hardly necessary  to  mention   that   the   audience  showed its appreciation  by applause, loud and long, to every  item ob the program, and nearly  every performance was encored.  Mr. 0. H. English added both  information  and  instruction  to  the enjoyment in a short speech  interspersed   by  flashes of   the  native humor of the speaker. He  gave some of his impressions of  the valley gathered .during! his  stay.    He  stated   that  the  soil  was just the kind for the climate;  that on account of our remoteness from markets, farmers must  direct their efforts towards dairying and live stock; in this connection he expressed his satisfaction  over the introduction of silos in  the valley and called them the  forerunners of successful farming.    He emphasized the necessity of the clearing of land.    He  considered  the  fact that some  farmers devote time to fishing as  being damaging   to   their own  welfare and that of the community.  We do not believe that Mr.  English has an adequate appreciation of his own ability as a  speaker. His short speech at  the hall showed that he could  present the everyday problems  of life in a way that made it interesting to the listener. He  should therefore in our judgment  devote more of his time to this  mode of instruction to the great  advantage of our province.

It is said that the  packs at the canneries of Bella  Coola and Kimsquit amount to  37,000 cases, the larger portion  of which is of the red varieties.  Gunnar Saugstad, after a summer spent in the fulfillment of  his duties as fishery officer, in  charge of. the Rivers Inlet district, came in last week on the  Dominion launch Merlin from  Rivers Inlet. He was accompanied by his wife arid mother,  and his assistant Randolph Saugstad. The catch of salmon, on  Rivers Inlet this season was'the  largest in its history.

Bowserreviewed its statements  inhis, for that reason, celebrated  speech at Vancouver some weeks  ago/' The opinion expressed by  the,spokesmen of the government and therefore "fully believed  by their   supporters ; was   that  every charge contained' in "The  Crisis" was conclusively refuted,  and 'the  prediction   was  freely  made .that no more would "The  Crisis" be heard from again as  a factor in the discussion of provincial affairs.  It" was also stated that the  Ministerial Union of the Ldwer  Mainland as a body had repudiated the whole pamphlet and that  something less than half a dozen  RESOLUTIONS.  a flagrant injustice being committed and  will  dp nothing to|������f its members,-together with  =��������� "Help the victim; but who, when  .^appealed to for assistance, will  - An a superior and an I-am-wiser-  " than-you- manner say: ."There  are faults oh both sides." These  are the 'neutrals, these are the  . ones who keep out of trouble at  all costs, even at the -price of  .their self-respect.   The cause of  this outburst^ of indignation on  ' our part is the attitude adopted  by some super-good people, especially in the republic to the  ; south of us, such as Wm. J. Bry-  - an, members of peace societies  and  representatives  of   some  ' church organizations who protest  against the sending of munitions  of war to the nations engaged  in a struggle ;to defend smaller  nations against the attacks of  the more powerful.  At the outbreak of this war,-  contrary to all,.taw, when fearful  atrocitiesjWere committed on unoffending Belgium, United States  were appealed to by a delegation  sent by the outraged country,  the answer given it was "We  will wait until the war is over,  then we .will,,look into the mat  ter." Wait until the oppressor  had done all the harm he possibly  could do. These very good people  in impeecablel righteousness, sit  back comfortably at home and  deplore the \far, the sinfulness  of it and the wickedness of selling arms to the Allies.  We have sometimes tried to  imagine what!the good Samari-  would have done had he arrived  a little earlier on the scene, while  the robber was beating the poor  traveller. Would he, at the appeal of help from the poor victim, have stood back and critically watched the conflict and given  Moses, were the only ones re  sponsible for its appearance. It  now turns out that the Union has  riot been -frightened by the boom  of Bowser's heavy artillery, but  is still maintaining a solid front  in support of the accusations  contained in the pamphlet, and  still insisting upon an investigation. Rev. J. R. Robertson, secretary of the Ministerial Union  of the Lower Mainland has sent  the Courier the. following set of  resolutions adopted at a largely  attended meeting of its members  held at Vancouver the 13th inst.  In view of the repeated statements that Rev. A, E. Cooke and  the others whose' names are  signed to '.'The .Crisis in B. C."  acted omtheir own responsibility,  we submit the following facts  for the .consideration of - your  readers: ���������    .  I.- That the Ministerial Union  of the Lower Mainland approved  of the policy of issuing a' statement to the publican the exploitation ' of the natural--resources,  of British Columbia. "  II. That in-pursuance of that  policy a committee of investigation was appointed which represented us throughout. This  committee- met. a great many  times, sent two of its members  to Victoria for some days to consult the records on file there, and  to verify all copies of documents  submitted and statements made  about the situation throughout!  the Province. As" a, result of  these investigations, they' were  convinced of the accuracy of the  statements which were afterwards made irrthe pamphlet.  III. Their report was presenr  ted and .discussed in detail "at  several of the most largely, attended meetings of the Ministerial Union ever held,. and'was  unanimously and heartily endorsed by everyone who;, was  present at the last and most  largely attended of all the" meetings. "  IV. That the campaign of  publicity carried on throughout  the Province by Rev. A. E. Cooke  belief we print the following editorial from !the Ottawa Free  Press:  Canada helping the Motherland! The silly phrase keeps recurring in newspaper interviews  and platform speeches. Patting  ourselves on ,the back for our  magnanimity!  In this war, Canada isn't fighting for the Motherland any more  than she is fighting for Canada  ���������for her own existence.  Germany wants a "place under  the sun"���������what place more suitable for world expansion and  settlement than Canada; "what  territory more strategically valuable as a base for future expansion and domination than the  country bounded for three thousand miles by .'the United States?

After having carefully considered all the explanations given  on behalf, of the Government,  we are more than ever convinced  of the necessity of the investigation, for which we appeal.

The arguments against prohibition aremany, and have been  answered hundreds of times in  the many campaigns of-the last  sixty years and mor.e; .but they  still bob- up serenely as if they  were bran new; and as some of  the voters have not been in contact with this issue before the  arguments must be answered so  that they can have a better, understanding of what it involves.  In times past, in common with  many other excellent people, the  laboring classes, as organized,  were opposed} to what was termed  'sumptuary legislation;' but now  they realize that the greatd  force that labor has to content  against is not organized eapitf  but the drink traffic.  "They, with their capitalist!  brethren,' have regarded tli  unrestricted use of intoxicant  as a privilege or a right whic  they felt it would be a weaknej  on their part to yield.

MINING  ;������������ political positions who conduct  ; their duties on the higher planes  of morality and honor.  j    Such men are shining examples  ; for others to follow, and in their  ! lives they prove to a cynical world  that it is possible to be strictly  honorable   even   in   a   political  career. They make it easier for  ! others to be guided by the same  | principles and thus they pave the  | way for the elevation of our  j political men to a loftier yiew  | and conduct of public affairs.  Too long has the word politician had an unsavory sound, too  long has  a  life   in   a   political  sphere  been   regarded   as   less  honorable than that of a physician,   a   banker,   or   a   merchant  prince.  President Wilson is one whom  both supporters and  opponents  give the highest commendation  for right motives.    We give the  following extract from the New  York Evening Post, a journal independent in politics.  The action  ascribed to Mr. Wilson will, we  hope, help some of our weaker  brethren to take a firmer stand  for rectitude and honor in aspiring for political preferment or in  the conduct of public office.  We may not agree with Mr.  Wilson in his policy towards Germany,  but we must credit him  with being strictly honest.   The  Evening Post says:  "President Wilson has declin-  ied to allow Democrats in New  | Jersey, his home State, to en-  i dorse him for another term, be-  ! cause he feels it might seem as  though he were taking advant-  | age of the international situation  to gain some personal advantage.  "So there is something new in  the   political   world   after   all!  When did any President who was  a candidate for re-election take  a similar stand?  "For those who observe with  seeing eyes there is nothing more  striking or grateful about the  whole situation in Washington  than this consistent refusal of  the President to make capital out  of the national crisis, either for  himself or his party. Without  inflaming the public, he could  have made a series of quiet  speeches upon topics of national  interest to rouse and thrill the  nation, while still setting the  wonderful example of self-repression as to all matters in controversy which has been his.  "The President haslet nothing  interfere with the policy he has  !aj(! down for himself-a policy  which is certain to be acclaimed  by the historians of the future,  as it is to bring him greater and  greater gratitude from his fellow  citizens."  600 dealers and trappers of B.

Bella  Coola  farmers are independent,  they are strangers to hard times.  "THE REASONS  for this  enviable  condi-  ���������   ���������*���������   tion of affairs   are   obvious to  anyon.e  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=3  B  r>-������?������<  " 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 OflL CO.

About sixty years  ago when  prohibition was the burning topic  in the State of Maine, the question came up to be decided by  vote in a small community.    At  that time the voting was not by  ballot, but viva voce.    The election w7as held in a schoolhouse.  When the vote was taken, those  in favor of prohibition' went to  one side of the room and those  opposed  to the other.    One of  the highly respected members of  the community went with those  who voted against; but when he  saw the sort of people he had  joined he got so disgusted that  he walked over to the other side  remarking he would not associate  himself with such a crowd.  // will :pe to your interest to keeP well informed regarding the  happenings ihroughoui  tHe Northern section of  this Province���������  THE "COURIER"  GIVES THEM.

The Disc Harrow. ;  When the cr'opo'f potatoes has  been taken care of, the fall plow-  n.  ing will commence.    In connection with, observations on  this  work we noticed in one of our  exchanges an article; on the usefulness of the disc harrow. , It is  a fact which  it should  not te  necessary to   even  mention  at  this time, that, in order to raise  good,crops it is of highest importance to give.the land thorough cultivation.     And for this  purpose the disc harrow is very  necessarj'.   . It should , be used  for cutting the sod .before the  plowing:'  "It nearly always pays to pre-  pareland^before-plowing.  "The disc harrow is the best  tool for this preparation.  "It mixes the stalk,  stubble  and other vegetable matter with  the surface soil.    ���������.      ....  .   "It cuts up and mixes with the  furrow-slice the greeri  manure  crop if one is being turned down.  "It makes the furrow-slice  turn over more smoothly, decreases the number of clods and  benefits the seed bed.  "By making the land moister  and breaking the top of the  ground it makes the plowing  easier and causes the plow to  pulverize the soil more thoroughly. '  "If every stubble field which  is to be fall plowed were disked  at once after removing the corn  or small grain, the yield of grain  over the whole nation would be  greatly increased."

IT'S  CANADA'S  BEST FLOUR  The  Prince^ Rupert papers  which arrived'in the mail of last  . week contain a short account of  the Third Annual Exhibition of  the Northern -B. C. Agricultural  Association just held at Prince  Rupert.   They publish an incomplete list of prize winners among  the exhibits consisting of dairy  produce, berries, bread,   cakes,  pickles, preserves, minerals, fishing photography, paintings, Embroidery and fancy work.   In all  these exhibits Bella Coola was  represented only in the one of  dairy produce, ;in which B. Filip  Jacobsen won first prize, and A.  Hammer second prize, for butter.  The exhibits ;far excelled previous records.    Further account of  the Fair we copy from the Daily  News of September 25:  The gate receipts amounted to  $930.75, which is within a very  few dollars of last year, and much  better than was expected.    The"  fair has been* the most successful ever held here, and no small  credit for the result is due to the  efforts of Alex. Prudhomme, the  president of the Association, and  F. S. Wright, secretary.    Both  gentlemen   have   worked   inde-  fatigably   for "months past, .to  make the fair a success.  The.Fair closed with an auction  sale, conducted by G. Naden, of  the exhibits from Kitsumkalum  and Lakelse.  ��������� A good sum was  realized, which, at the request of  the owners, was handed oyer to  the Red Cross Society.  . The local branch of the Red  Cross Society, is the richer by  nearly $400, raised by selling refreshments   during   the   three  days. " .  i The'Indians of the district responded splendidly to the efforts  put forth to.interest them in the  exhibition, and not a little of the  success of the fair is due to them.  The exhibit sent in by the Indians were, amongst the most interesting. .
