Walker, late  of  Hagensborg,  giving an account of her brother's death at  the front.   It will be remembered  that Lieut. Bryan Townsley was  visiting his siter at her home at  Hagensborg on the outbreak of  hostilities, Leaving here he joined the 72nd Seaforth Highlanders, for "over-seas service.    He  saw service in Egypt and then  tranferred   to   the . 12th   West  Yorkshire Regiment,'where he  gained his commission. c  His regiment went to France  and had only been in the trenches two weeks when he met his  death while gallantly leading his  men to success.  Mrs. Walker's husband, after  their arrival in England, joined  the colors and gained a commission.   He is now at the front.  bia, if not in all Canada.  This prospect was first located  some twenty years ago and has  changed hands many times. At  one time it . was worked and  owned by Mr. James Findlay,  ex-mayor of Vancouver.

Seattle, who for the past week  has been looking over mining  properties around Bella Coola left  for Vancouver, Monday. Mr.  Drange is really the first mining  man that has taken the pains  necessary to look over this section of British Columbia with a  view of. ascertaining the mining  possibilities of this particular  locality. The Tacoma smelte;* is  in need of ore for fluxing purposes and according to Mr. Drange  this community will be able to  produce just what is required in  that class of ore. He expressed  a hope that' something, might be  done in the mining line here in  the early spring.  Lance-Corporal Fred C, Grant  was wounded on the 6th of October and is now at the Third Stationary Hospital, Boulogne.  ���������  Such was the sad news received  by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. S.  Le C. Grant on Wednesday last.  On the outbreak of the war  Fred was amongst the first to  offer himself for foreign service  from Bella Coola and has been  in the thick of the.fighting right  along, having been fortunate to  escape injury up to this.  The Courier joins with his  many friends in wishinghim a  speedy recovery and extends to I  F. G. Hagan met with an accident last Wednesday with the  result that he is now under the  doctor's care.  While squaring a piece of timber for a building in the course  of construction on his ranch in  Saloomt valley, the axe slipped  and in so doing entered the leg  a little below the knee cap. , Mr.  Hagan had a very narrow escape  last spring, while on a hunting  trip the gun he was carrying by  some misfortune emptied itself,  the ball doing considerable damage to some of his ribs. It is  hoped that this last experience  will not be any more serious than  the first and Mr. Hagan's many  friends wiil be able to see hi-m  around again in a short time.  The lectures delivered by Mr.  J. G. Walker in;the Mackenzie  school during the week were well  attended and very much appreciated. The subjects were masterly handled by the speaker and  showed that a great deal of study  has been devoted to them, bearing as they. did. on both ancient  and,modern history. \  "THE NEAR EASTERN QUESTION"  IS THE SUBJECT FOR TONIGHT  The near Eastern Question will  be dealt with by Mr. Walker at  the meeting this evening and no  one should miss the opportunity  of hearing this great question  discussed.  J. R. Morrison, John Nelson,  William Nelson and others making up the crew building a section of the main line of the proposed wagon road from Bella  Coola, to Chilanco Forks, have  quit work and returned to town.  The work done this year is claimed to be the heaviest on the whole  stretch of the road between salt  water and Atnarko, a distance of  sixty miles.  An exchange gives this on the  political situation at^ Victoria.  After election the premier elect,  H. C. Brewster, took himself to  his salmon cannery on the west-  coast of Vancouver Island, and  ever since party followers have  been busy at street corn ers selecting a cabinet for him. Among  the most prominent mentioned  are John Oliver of Dewdney, Dr.  J. H. King, Granbi'ook, and T.  D. Pattullo, Prince Rupert, who  are regarded as sure of seats in  the new cabinet.  The new ministei-s will have  to offer themselves for re-election in'their respective constituencies, which is an ancient safeguard against weak and unpopular appointments. Usually ministers of a newly-elected government are returned by, acclamation.  Reports from Surf Inlet show  that this newly started mining  town is building up very fast. _  The ore being taken out is  making better showing every day  as the work progresses. There  is great possibility that' this mine  on Princess Royal Island will be  one of the, best in British Colum-  Our townsman Alf. Blakemore  will spend the winteirat^Kims-'  quit looking after the Diraney  Fisheries Ltd. interests at that  place. ,  Ocean Falls News.  Work on the cottages for the  artisans and other families of the  engaged in the big pulp mill  plant is going on apace, also the  erection of the huge concrete  building that will house.some of  the most up-to-date paper making'  machinery on the American continent. .A great deal of new  machinery is arriving and will  continue to do so as the buildings  are made ready to receive it.  .There are now something like  eleven hundred men employed by  the Pacific Mills Ltd., about the  mills and in the logging camps.  During the summer a scarcity of.  labor was experienced, but this  has to some extent been overcome.' Many of the men taking  part in the fisheries, during the ,  canning season are.ccmirg heie  to work during the winter.  On Sept. 20th a laborer named  Walter Cook attempted suicide  by cutting his throat with a razor  and would have succeeded but  for prompt medical attention.  After being in hospital here for  a time it was found that he was  mentally deranged and has now  been taken down to the mental ,  hospital at New Westminster.  The unfortunate man is about 24  years of age and his former  home was Valdon, Minnesota.  Provincial Constable T. Mansell  was sent up from Vancouver to  take charge of him on the way  south.

There has been a belief commonly held that the Germans  were a virtuous, law abiding and  God fearing people. In fact, that  they were the best people on the  continent of Europe.  Late occurence have tended to  throw doubts upon such opinions.t  While the writer some years  ago was actively connected with  the temperance movement in the  United States, it was a common  ' thing to read in print that beer  had a very brutalizing effect upon the general character of the  habitual drinker, and as proof of  this statement it was pointed out  that the most horrible of crimes  were generally committed by the  beer drinking Germans; and that  the worst elements in society  such as saloon-keepers, brewers  and anarchists were mostly of  'canst, tho war, was brought  about by Germany to satisfy Germany's ambition for "a place in  the sun."  j The cruelty and brutality of  I tho deliberate launching of this  j war upon  the world is ko appal-  I ling that ordinary humanity are  i * *  ! loth  to believe that any'nation  j  should he held responsible. Hut  Germany went into it with her  eyes open, in defiance of the  pleadings, remonstrances and  threats of the other great powers of Europe.  Floods of Evidence  In further proof of the wickedness of the German people as a  whole, a look has = lately seen  the light of day which brings  forward a flood of evidence to  this effect.    -  Its title is "Degenerate Germany," by Henry de Halsalle.  It is "dedicated to those who  still harbor the mischievous illusion that the Germans afe an  estimable, peaceful and kindly  people, utterly misled and misrepresented by their wicked government."  And M! de Halsalle equipped  by a most extended knowledge  of his subject, and backed by the  approval of Frederic Harrison,  Lord Halsbury, Earl of Rose-  bery and Admiral Lord Bores-  ford, will certainly dispel that,  illusion wherever honestly entertained.  The outrages committed by the  Germans in Belgium and Northern France, of which there are  such abundant proofs, have by  Germany's defenders been held  cases and committed Ly some  i drunken and dissolute soldiers  and should not bexjharged to the  army as a whole. But the author  of this book proves beyond doubt  that such is not the case, but  i that "even German statistics indicate that Germany is beyond  question the most vice-ridden  country in Europe.-- In the year  1909, there were dealt with by  German courts as crimes result-  ing in convictions, 797,112 separate acts! Germany furnishes  women for the white slave traffic for half the world."  Tire book contains 2GG0 pages  of close print and is packed with  information of this nature.  In refutation of the assertion  that the Germans are a religious  people  the  statement is  made  that in one parish in Berlin three  clerg\ men   sufliceri, for  CO,GOO  people, with a total (this in the  year 1870) of 03 burials with religious services and 1897 without.  Some years ago the'Kreuz Zeit-  ung deplored the fact that "Berlin, of all christian towns is the  one that has,  proportionately,  the least number of churches."  To which a free-thinking journal  rejoined:    "The pious Zeitung  should have added that even the  few churches of which it speaks  are always empty." The Volks  Zeitung places the attendance at  about one half of 1 per cent.of  the population.  ... o- .: o- -o,:   o     o:: :���������',;.    - -\  ! ���������   $'  President Wilson's Troubles.  ��������� The late submarine activity on  the eastern coast of North America is making President Wilson's campaign for re-election  somewhat complicated.  It is safe to assume that Mr.  Wilson's sympathies are with  the Entente Allies, but in deference to his party, whose success  at the polls he must not jeopardize, he is obliged to assume an  attitude almost unfriendly to the  Allies1 in order not to antagonize  the large German and Irish  voters.  The   Allies   have   protested  to have been confined to isolated lajainst'the enemy's submarines  being allowed to call at United  States ports for information and  possibly supplies; but Mr. Wilson  rules that he cannot refuse the  German submarines this privilege, as it is not a violation of  International laws.  It is not easy to lay down ,the  correct rulings in this case, because the situation created by  the entrance of submarines in  naval warfare is unprecedented;  and in the heat of the campaign  for re-election Mr. Wilson naturally gives a decision which,will  cause the least harm to the success of the Democratic party.'  And recent events show that  t  Mr. Wilson is not exactly reposing on a bed of roses. In spite  of his lenient and forbearing attitude towards Germany, and his  strong protests to Britain for interference with commerce and  searching and detention of the  mails, he has drawn upon himself the opposition of the pro-  Germans who now see an opportunity to punish him for not pitting an embargo on munitions of  war, etc.  Of what he is up' against the  primary election in Mr. Wilson's  home state, New Jersey, furnishes a pretty fair sample.  Two Democrats, one a very  good and able man, the other of  the ward"politician type, were  contending for nomination at the  primary election. Mr. Wilson  used every effort, which, in his  case is exceptionally strong, to  get the best man elected. Under  ordinary circumstances with his  qualifications and the support received Mr. Wilson's candidate  would have had a walk-over, but  instead he met with the most  ignominious defeat.' And the  reason for this unexpected result was that the German-American and the Irish elements united to give Mr. Wilson a drubbing  by opposing his candidate.  Hence it is easy to,explain Mr.  Wilson's attitude in, his controversy with the Allies over the  latest phase in submarine warfare. But thathe resents the  attacks made upon him by the  pro-Germans was made evident  the other day when in answer to  an insulting telegram from a pro-  German he replied it would mor:  tify him to receive the support  of such men and as he was not  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co.

Although the Allies may sympathize with Mr. Wilson in the  dilemma in which lie is placed  yettheywill no doubt find means  by which the position taken by  the great republic will be neutralized.

O      0    o     o    o  Like Pulling Teeth.  Even the most devoted Bowser-  ite must now admit tnat it is  with the greatest,reluctance and  utmost delay that the defeated  government retires from office.  Itis.an operation as painful-as  the pulling of teeth. It is now-  over a month' since they were  told emphatically at the polls that  their services were no longer  wanted, but they are very deliberate about obeying the summons.

Only routine business, the catching up with the affairs behindhand in the different departments and getting everything in  ship-shape for turning over the  administration to the incoming  government will be performed.  It is very kind of Mr. Bowser^  to inform the public of'what he  thinks is proper,for his government to do and not to do under  the 'circumstances, as if there,  according to all precedents, was  any other course open to him.  But he has become so accustomed  to violating precedents that he  probably thought it necessary to  inform an impatient public that  in this case he had decided otherwise.

According to our notions of a  popular government it is altogether inexplicable how any man  or body of men could be permitted under the circumstances to  .conduct the affairs of the country  in this way.  Another thing we cannot fathom is why it should be necessary  to wait one month after the election before counting the soldiers'  vote.  The Victoria Times sarcastically comments on the slowness  of the progress of the count in  this fashion: > ., ,  Very Gradual.  "The count of the soldiers'  v.ote cast in Canada will be commenced on- October 13th. The  count of the vote polled in Europe  will be started four days later.  It never would do to have the  two commence on the same day.  There would be too much uniformity about, while it would not  be in keeping with the process  by which the Bowser government  is being disconnected from office  by graduated stages. Never has  a ministry, overwhelmingly rejected by the people, slid so  gently into oblivion. The only  shock this one suffered was on  the day the returns of the civilian vote came in. There has been  no grinding, groaning, moaning,  parting of the hawser, no sharp  wrench. Although the owners  of the ship have fired them bat  and baggage,- the ministers will  remain on deck to the very last  minute and the very last cent.  Perhaps after all   the electors  i  should feel grateful that the retirement of the government is  not even more gradual than it is.  The count of the soldiers' vote  might have been started some  days later than the present schedule demands or the act might  have stipulated that it should hi  begun in not less than six months  and not more than twelve months  from the date of nomination."  o    o    o    o    o  An Early Federal Electior..  In Montreal they are .talking  about an early Dominion election, perhaps the last of Novem-.  ber. Ottawa says no election in  sight, but Ottawa was the only  place taken by surprise when Sir  Wilfrid Laurier dissolved parliament in the summer of 1911. It  certainly looks like the ministers  of the crown were busy feeling  the pulse of the country. Sir  Robert Borden has been looking  over his fences in Nova Scotia,  and yesterday was said to be  meeting influential people in  Montreal. Hon. Mr. Cochrane  has gone to Sudbury, where nickel abounds, and even more  precious metals may be obtained.

The Germans find it rather  'difficult' even with their blood  and iron rule to govern the Belgians. The-Belgians do not accept their authority as legal and  therefore has no scruples of defying it whenever possible.  The Germans have bsen using  che railroads   and   the  rolling  stock of Belgium for war purposes and in the natural course  jf events repairs and renewals  have to be made, but the Belgians could not be induced to do  :his work.   Therefore force had  co be used.   They were told that  .io food would be allowed to be  supplied them from any source,  and in order to enfore this deeiee  barbed wire fences were erected  around the town; no food should  pass^'this barrier ar.d no Belgian  be allowed, to leave.   The relief  committee protested without  avail; but the Belgians were firm  and would not yield even if they  were starved,   with  the result  that finally the German authorities had, to give in and allow food  to be distributed.

Carrick, member of  Dominion House of Commons,  has just returned from a visit to  the fighting front in France. He  found everyone at the front filled  with optimism and confidence.  In regard to the celebrated  "tanks" he said:  "During the few days that I  was at the front, the first attack  was made by the mysterious  'tanks.' They were^considerably to the north of us and could  not be distinguished on account  of the tremendous bombardment,  which never let up day or night.  However, when I was at dinner  with Lord Rhondda and some of  the war-office officials, they de-  scribed these tanks as a miracle  of ingenuity. They are about 60  feet long and between 12 andil5  feet wide and run on an endless  chain  belt  arrangement which  enabies-<them .to go over rough  ��������� ���������   v w''' i-v ��������� *' ��������� A,  ground- and over trenches.   ,Sii  Sam Hughes told me that one of  the German officers is reported  to have said that when a tank  was across a certain trench, enfilading it, that this was not war  ���������it was simply murder. However, it ill behooves the.Germans  after their tactics of gas and baby |  killing and f rightfulness to make  any such references."  April Favored for Election.  ��������� The Borden government is in  doubt whether to pull off a general election in December or to  postpone the day of wrath until  next April.' The chances favor  the latter date.  The government itself looks on  April as a desirable date to test  public feeling for two or three  reasons. In the first place, an  April campaign means a short  session of Parliament. To dissolve the House and make the  writs returnable means a clear  space of a month, and that in  turn means an adjournment by  the end of February.  A six weeks session, occupied  largely with estimates and appropriations will not give a scandal crusade much chance to make  headway. The Borden government has enough scandals on  its hands already.  y.'s:'^*  / heJVlason & rlisch Piano  "NO  of to-day will mafic plain our  privilege to slate with authority:  FINER  PIANO MADE!"

In fact, that  they were .the best people on the  continent of Europe. '  Late occurence have tended to  throw doubts upon such opinions.  While the writer some years  ago was actively connected with  the temperance movement in the  United States, it was a common  thing to read in print that beer  had a very brutalizing^effect upon the general character of the  habitual drinker, and as proof of  this statement it was pointed out  that the most horrible of crimes  were generally committed by the  beer drinking Germans; and that  the worst elements in society  such as saloon-keepers, brewers  that nationality.  Coming down to this war and  the cause of it some people insist  that it is a punishment from God  upon sinful people.    Be that as  it may  there   is   some   human  agency also responsible -for the  launching of this the greatest of  calamities upon human society.  And it is equally true that that  agency was evil.    The responsibility in'the light of history will  not   be   charged   to a  virtuous  nation.    It is the evil things that  bring evil to come about. ��������� And  in spite of the pro-Germans asseverations to the contrary'the  calm and critical historian of the  future will have no  trouble to  find that this monumental holocaust,   the   war,   was   brought  about by Germ amy to satisfy Germany's ambition for "a place in  the sun."  The cruelty and brutality of  the deliberate launching of this  war upon the world is so appalling that ordinary humanity are  loth to believe that'any nation  should be held responsible. But  Germany went into it" with her  eyes dpe'n, in defiance of the  pleadings, remonstrances and  threats of the other great powers of Europe.  Floods of Evidence  In further proof of the wickedness of the German people as a  whole, a book has lately seen  the light of day which brings  forward a flood of evidence to  this effect.  Its title is "Degenerate Germany," by Henry de Halsalle.  It is "dedicated- to those who  still harbor the mischievous illusion that the Germans are an  estimable, peaceful and 'kindly  people, utterly misled and misrepresented by their'wicked government."  And M. de Halsalle equipped  by a most extended knowledge  of his subject, and backed by the  approval of Frederic Harrison,  Lord Halsbury, Earl of Rose-  bery and Admiral. Lord Beres-  ford, will certainly dispel that  illusion wherever honestly entertained.  The outrages com mitted by the  Germans in Belgium and Northern France, of-whhm there are  such abundant proofs, have by  V  mmm  wmmmrn  MAKES perfect bread  J  cases and committed ly some  drunken and ^dissolute soldiers  and should;hot be charged to the  army as a whole. But the author,  of this book proves beyond doubt  that^such is not the case, but  that "even German statistics indicate that Germany is beyond  question the most vice-ridden  country in Europe. In the year  1909, there were dealt with by-  German courts as crimes resulting in convictions, 797,112 separate acts! 'Germany furnishes  women for the white slave traffic for half the world."  The book contains 2660 pages  of close print and is packed with  information of. this nature.  In refutation of the assertion  that the Germans are a religious  people the statement- is made  that in one parish in Berlin three  clergymen sufficed for 60,000  people, with a total' (this in the  year 1870)of v63 burials with religious services and 1897 without.  Some years ago the Kreuz Zeitung deplored the fact that "Berlin, of all christian towns is the  one 7 that has, proportionately,  the least number of churches.''  To which a free-thin king j.ournal  rejoined: "The pious Zeitung  should have added that even the  few churches of which it speaks  are always empty." The Volks  Zeitung places the attendance at  about one half of 1 per cent of  the population.  Germany's defenders been held  and  anarchists were  mostly of to have been confined to isolated  President Wilson's Troubles.  The late submarineactiyityoh  the eastern coast of North America is making President Wilson's campaign for re-election  somewhat complicated.  It is safe to assume that Mr.  r  Wilson's sympathies are with  the Entente Allies, but jhMefer-  ence to his party, whose success  at the polls he must not jeopardize, he is obliged to assume an  attitude almost unfriendly to the  Allies in order not to antagonize  the large German and Irish  voters.  The   Allies   have    protested  against the enemy's submarines  being allowed to call at United  States ports for information and  possibly supplies; but Mr. Wilson  rules that he cannot refuse the  German submarines this privilege, as it is not a violation of  International laws. -   ,'  It is hot easy to lay down the  correct rulingssin this.case, because the "situation created by  the entrance of submarines in  naval warfare is unprecedented;  and in the heat of the campaign  for re-election Mr. Wilson naturally gives,a decision which will  cause the least harm to the success of the Democratic party.  And recent events show that  Mr. Wilson is not exactly reposing on a bed/of roses. In spite  of his lenient and forbearing attitude towards Germany, and his  strong protests to Britain for interference with commerce and  searching and detention of the  mails, he has. drawn upon himself the opposition of the pro-  Germans who now see an opportunity to punish him for not put-  ing an embargo on munitions of  war, etc. k       ,  Of what he is up against the  primary election in Mr. Wilson's  home state, New Jersey, furnishes a pretty fair sample.  sTwo Democrats, one a very  good and able man, the other of  the ward politician type, were  contending for nomination at the  primary election. Mr.. Wilson  used every effort, which in his  case is exceptionally strong, to  get the best man elected. Under  ordinary circumstances-with his  qualifications and the support, received Mr. Wilson's candidate  would Jiave had a walk-over, but  instead he met with the most  ignominious defeat. And the  reason for this unexpected result was that the German-American and the Irish elements united to give Mr. Wilson a drubbing  by opposing his candidate.  Hence it is easy to explain Mr.  Wilson's attitude in his controversy with the Allies over the  latest phase in submarine warfare. But that he resents the  attacks made, upon him by the  pro-Germans was made evident  the other day when in answer to  an insulting telegram from a pro-  German he replied it would mortify him to receive the support  of such men and as he was not  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co- Ltd.

It is very kind of Mr. Bowser  to inform the public of what he  thinks is proper for his government to do and not to do under  the circumstances, as if there,  according to all precedents. was  any other course open to him.

It never would do to have the  two commence on the same day.  There would be too much uniformity about, while it would not  be in keeping with the process  by which the Bowser government  is. being disconnected from oflice  by graduated stages. Never has  a ministry, overwhelmingly rejected by the people, slid so  gently into oblivion. The only  shock this one suffered was on  the day the returns of the civilian vote came in. There has been  no grinding, groaning, moaning,  parting of the hawser, no sharp  wrench. Although the owners  of the ship have fired them ba^  and baggage, the ministers will  remain on deck to the very lasi  minute and the very last cent.  Perhaps after all the electors  should feel grateful that the retirement of the government is  not even more gradual than it is.  The count of the soldiers' vote  might have been started some  days later than the present schedule demands or the act might  have stipulated that it should bt  begun in notless than six months  and not more than twelvemonths  from the date of nomination."  o     c     o     c     o  An Early Federal Electior.

The Tanks.  Col. J. J. Carrick, member of  Dominion House of Commons,  has just returned from a visit to  the fighting front in France. He  found everyone at the front filled  with optimism  and  confidence.  In regard to the celebrated  "tanks" he said:  "During the few days that 1  was at the front, the first attack  was made by the mysterious  'tanks.' They were considerably to the north of us and could  not be distinguished on account  of the tremendous bombardment,  which never let up day or night.  However, when I was at dinner  with Lord Rhondda and some of  the war office officials, they described these tanks as a miracle  of ingenuity. They are about 60  foet long and between 12 and 15  feet wide and run on an endless  chain belt arrangement which  enables them to go over rough  ground and over trenches. Sh  Sam Hughes told me that one ol  the German officers is reported  to have said that when a tank  was across a certain tnnch, enfilading it, that this was not wai  it. was simply murder.

The Borden government is in  doubt whether to pull off a general election in December or to  postpone the day of wrath until  next April. The chances favor  the latter date.  The government itself looks on  April as a desirable date to test  public feeling for two or three  reasons. In the first place, an  April campaign means a short  session of Parliament. To dissolve the House and make the  writs returnable means a clear  space of a month, and that in  turn means an adjournment by  the end of February.  A six weeks session, occupied  largely with estimates and appropriations will not give a scandal cyusade much chance to make  headway. The Borden government has enough scandals on  its hands already.
