They-traversed the valley a distance of about twenty-four miles  for the purpose of locating a  trail to some agricultural lands  along this river. What seemed  to impress them the most on the  trip was the large number of  seals seen at the head of the inlet and even for some distance  up the river. The salmon was  conspicuous by its almost entire  absence.   Albert Hammer, the energetic-  secretary of the local Farmers'  Institute, urges upon the farmers to get their exhibits for the  Prince Rupert Fair ready in time  for shipment on the 16th inst.  In the meantime he will be busy  canvassing the farmers for exhibits.  The summer hospital at Rivers  Inlet is now about to be closed,  after ��������� a very busy season. A  greater number of patients was  treated this year than- in any  previous year. Records show  that since its opening'on March  1st, nearly ninety cases have  received treatment, while  during the whole of last season  the number that received medical aid at the hospital was eighty.  Dr. G. E. Darby, the medical  superintendent, with staff is now  about to return to the Bella Bella  Hospital.  Owing to its situation the Bella  Bella Hospital has always been  a busy one and expects to be exceptionally so during the coming  winter. Plans are now in preparation for a new and more  commodious building, and when  completed will have all modern  conveniences.  The Methodist Church of Canada built this hospital many  years ago, and at that time the  Indian-population was the foremost in their mind. A great  deal had been done for them in a  spiritual way, but it was thought  that their health should also be  looked after. Now that the white  population has increased the condition has changed, and last year  nearly thirty whites from.'* this  section of the coast came here  for medical aid and had. to op  cared for. So far this year;  forty-eight out of a total";of  eighty-six have been white patr-  ents. To be able to properly  look after these unfortunate's  that come here in search of  health, steps are now being taken  for better facilities all-around.  Dr. G. E. Darby, the medical  superintendent, though a young  man has met with great success  in this field.

' The bedrock upon; which the  State is founded is the morals of  its people. A'nything.that makes  -for purity in their lives and in  their views is 'so much added to  the security of the State.  If the people are clean ih their  lives and.are.industrious, all the  prove the evil effects of prohibition in Russia.   According to this  paper, "it is indeed awful the  way the people, both physically  and morally^ are going to  the  dogs in that country which was  so highly   civilized - before  the  vodka, by  imperial decree, was  taken away.    And the death rate  as a natural  consequence has,  outside that caused by the war.,  increased at an alarming rate."  If all this is true we must conclude that   the government of  Russia is composed of the greatest dunderheads, upon   earth.  "The Week" will make us believe  that  by the abolition of vodka  the Russian   government   have  deprived the country of hundreds  of millions of dollars revenue annually, and the only return for  Jthis great sacrifice they receive  nothing but death and demoralization.    Really our brains are  notsufficiently'muddled to believe  this-,   even   though   we   find.it  soberly stated" in an  otherwise  reliable'journal. '. -  British Columbia's Plight:  The.

When we look upon the condition of the public treasury of  our province, consider the*large  things that will be added unto it. I area of agricultural and timber.  enlightenment;* good, govern  ment,   prosperity- arid   liberty7  will,be su,re to-follow;  The abolition of the liquor traffic- is one of the things which will  make for the betterment of the  morals of the, people and therefore also   for. the  other   good  ,   This is no longer.a theory, hatched out in the Heads of impractical persons, who imagine vain  things; but. has been proven by  practical application for several  decades in nearby States to be  everything claimed for it by its  most enthusiastic advocates. . It  is true that it is not well to force  prohibitory, legislation   of   that  nature upon an;unwilling majority in a democratic State, as it  will be almost /.impossible to enforce its provisions.    But when  the public sentiment is sufficiently enlightened  and desirous of.  i __  better things, it is in the highest  interest of the country to abolish  the liquor traffic.  ��������� Tn this the second decade of  the twentieth century, the editorials of  anti-prohibition newspapers coming, to our office afford   rather   strange   reading.  They are solemnly  and  sadly  setting forth arguments in defense of the traffic which years  and years ago have been conclu-  siyely refuted, both by logic and  experience.  These troubled editors   bemoan   the   impenetrable  stupidity of the  fanatics,  who  clamor for the destruction of this  highly prosperous industry the  exit of which Will prove disastrous to the welfare of the whole  country.   Any ordinarily informed person is almost forced to the  conclusion that* these  calamity  howlers have been asleep for at  least twenty years and are just  waking up and,, therefore, have  not observed the  beneficial effects of prohibition in the many  countries that have adopted it.  "The Week" of August 14,  published in Victoria, brings  forth a statement taken from a  London   journal   purporting   to  lands diverted from their proper  utilization, the millions in.money  jeopardized in * guaranteeing the  bonds of railroads which open up  comparatively small sections of  the province, the large commissions paid in the purchase of-the  Kitsilanband Songhee's reserves  and the excessive price paid in  the purchase of the two submarines, we come to the conclusion  which to us seems entirely just,  that the looting of the Manitoba  treasury by the Roblin government' was a small matter compared with the reckless administration of our provincial affairs  by the McBride government.  That people outside of British  Columbia share our opinion of  provincial affairs may be gathered from the following extract  of an article from the.pen of H.  F. Gadsby of Ottawa. In dealing with the political situation  he says in part:  The clergy of the lower mainland and a number of good citizens have banded together and  are demanding a royal commission to investigate.   The figures  submitted by their experts indicate that, compared with British  Columbia,'looting was just in its  infancy in Manitoba.    Where the  Manitoba crowd  took  millions,  the British Columbia outfit got  away with,tens, perhaps, hundreds of   millions.     They're no  pikers   out   there  in   Victoria.  When they play poker with the  public resources- the roof's the  limit.     "-*.,.  It was'a brisk game while it  lasted, but the province is about  gutted now.   A royal commission  in British Columbia would show  the treasury as bare as Mother  Hubbard's cupboard, and nothing to line "the shelves but the  worthless   promissory^ note's of  the exploiters and speculators.  However, there is little present  danger of a royal commission in  British Columbia to be followed  by a general election as was.the  case in  Manitoba.     In  British  Columbia -the. government has a  lieutenantVgovernor of .its own  party complexion, and  he will  make it his duty to sit on the lid.  In Manitoba the Roblin government was cursed with a Liberal  lieutenant-governor, who insisted in pulling the lid off.   That's'  the main difference.   Manitoba  had a wash-up, British Columbia  goes in for a hush-up;   Until the  sky looks a good deal brighter  than 'it does,now,  safety first  will be the McBride-Bowser line  of action.  It is safe to assume that Mr.  Gadsby voices the general opinion held in the capital of Canada,  and if that is the case it is equal  ly safe to assume that Sir Richard's chances of entering the  cabinet of Sir Richard Borden  are about equal with those of Sir  Rodmond Roblin.  o    o'   o    o     o  Objections tq Machine Guns.  TheCourierarticle referred to  by Messrs. Atkins and Lord in  this issue, was not designed for  anyone in particular.

MONTREAL        WINNIPEG       VANCOUVER  Milk Production is Greatest When"  Cows Freshen in the Fall.  H'n- are so many advantages  n having dairy cows come fresh  '" the fall, while the disadvantages are but vary few, if any,  that one wonders why so little  progress is being made in that  direction. Those who have silos,  and no one can afford to dairy  without a silo in these days of  high priced land, should be especially anxious to have at least  two-thirds of their cows calve in  the fall of the year.  September is a good month to  have the cows freshen. If grass  is short at that time it can be  supplemented with silage and the  necessary grain, and thus the  flow of milk brought up to the  largest amount possible. Later,  with an abundance of succulent  (evd at hand, the milk flow can  easily be maintained throughout  the winter months. Then, by  the time grass comes and the  cows have given milk for seven  or eight months and the flow  tends to diminish, it will be revived when the cows are turned  on good pasture, while in July  and August when the flies are  bad and conditions are against a  liberal flow of milk, the cows  are either dry or very soon will  be.  In other words, the cow that  calves in the fall has a much better opportunity to produce a large  amount of milk and butterfat in  a season than the one that freshens in the spring. This is readily appreciated upon a little reflection. Suppose a cow freshens in May when the pastures  are good. She gives a large flow  of milk during May and June,  first because feed is abundant,  and second because she has recently freshened. But no sooner  has she started than the hot  months of July and August with  flies and perhaps dried up pastures are upon her and the milk  flow immediately drops. When  cooler weather returns and grass  revives there will be a slight increase in the yield of milk, but  a full flow normal for that period  cannot be obtained till the cow  has calved again.  It is safe to say that a given  cow will produce twenty per cent  more milk and butterfat when  she calves in the fall than when  she comes fresh in the spring.  This increase in production  should in itself be enough to  cause any dairyman to at least  have the majority of his cows  freshen in the fall.

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.  ������  t^<^r>^1^>^r%W'^<^���������^^<^T>~<%<%9  _-  POLA  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.

If money is needed for that  purpose the correct" method is to  raise it by taxation.  . 3. There is grave danger in  overlapping the work of the government in this direction and  thus causing a needless waste.  4. The government is turning  down these public efforts, whilst  I admit it accepts the money and  uses it as they think best.  5. The time is not far distant  when funds for the Red Cross  movement, a most humane and  absolutely necessary work, will  not be procurable owing to a  prodigal and questionable patriotism, viz: purchasing of machine  guns ad lib.  In conclusion, I take off my  hotin sincerest admiration to all  subscribers to the local gun fund  who' have done so with a single  eye to the benefit of the Empire  at this critical time and have not  been actuated by a. desire for  either local or self aggrandisement.���������Yours sincerely,  Chas.

The Penticton Herald tells what  Hedley, a small mining town,  has done for the cause of patriotism. It has sent out scores of  recruits, several nurses, three  machine guns, $1000 to the patriotic fund, $1000 to the Red Cross  fund, $300 to the tobacco fund,  $1500 for other war needs and.  tons of clothing to Belgian relief.

Sir,���������May I be permitted to  comment upon your article in  -the last issue of the Courier under the heading, "Is it Selfishness or Obtuseness."  Of'the partiality displayed we  will say nothing, beyond deploring it;-for of all things it seems  to us an editor should be impartial, and it seems that he is going  out of his jurisdiction when he  brands those who do not see eye  to eye with the promoters of the  scheme as "selfish or obtuse."  While we quite recognize the  absolute, paramount importance  of a well equipped army; the necessity of caring for the wounded  is' also painfully  palpable, and  while the one is the obvious duty  of the government and the cost  of which should be, and I venture  to suggest is, met by taxation;  the other   is left,   rightly or  wrongly, to the charity of the  individual and therefore merits  the support of every being who  boasts of a particle of humanity.  Further, a perusal of the newspapers will show that it is virtually impossible to purchase a gun  such as it is proposed to donate,  under several months, and some  of the higher military officials  have seen  fit to  condemn this  movement as dangerous.
