New Naturalization Law  Ottawa, Sept. 10.--General  satisfaction is expressed in political circles over the announcement that an agreement has been  reached between the Dominion  and British authorities over the  question of Imperial naturalization. This has been a vexatious  problem for years and has been  the subject of long negotiations.  The new law provides that for  naturalization a man must be a  resident in the empire for five  years, the last year in England.  Formerly it was necessary to be  five years resident in the old  land. This legislation will likely  be introduced in the British house  next session and concurrent legislation will be passed by Canada.  The Canadian legislation will require five years residence in the  empire and the last year in the  Dominion.

Oiir Second Birthday  A year ago we published the  first issue of the VBellla Coola  Courier" and its reception was  that of any other newcomer.  Some were doubtful, a few hoped  that the usual troubles of infancy  would prove, fatal, the majority  -were well-wishers and all were  at least interested.  Our obj ect was to give the community an opportunity to express  its opinion on points of importance  to the whole district, and to ensure that' this opinion when ex-  . pressed should not be lost.    The  printed word has a power that ho  discussion   between' individuals  " can possibly possess.   It goes farther and wider and is permanent'.  Bella  Coola through  its newspaper.brings the voice and views  of the world to its own homes  and it ensures, that the voice and  views of Bella Coola shall' become known to the outside world.  We are no longer an isolated  colony: we are in weekly touch  with Vancouver, Victoria, Prince  Rupert, to an extent which no  mail service could secure for us.  Our own . local   difficulties   are  now   made   definitely   known  where previously there was only  idle and sometimes unreasonable  complaint, and as a result of this  more definite knowledge,   it is  found that obstacles apparently  unsurmountable are dissolved by  the influence of open discussion.  We claim that the "Courier"  during its year of life has done  its best under great difficulties  to assist thedevelopment of our  Valley.     We   have   of. course  learned much from our experience and this experience shall be  devoted   towards   making   our  paper still more effectual as an  instrument for good to our local  friends as well as an aid to the  general benefit of the community  and to the Province.  ���������It is necessary, however, to  point out. that an agency which  i3 for the good of. all requires  and deserves the support of all,  and ought not to be left as too  onerous a pecuniary burden for  one or two men. Practical sympathy means an actual subscription and this, with the objects  we have in view, is surely little  to ask since for each individual  it means only one dollar a year.  While not six in this valley omitted to subscribe last year we,  while we thank our steadfast  supporters, consider that as���������  whether they wish it or not���������  those six are benefitted by our  efforts they also should join with  us who work for them.  Are we becoming a nation of  liars?   Admitted that, except in  the joyous freedom of. speech to  which we are born and in which  wre are created equal, the word  "liars" is little used.     Granted  that the meaning is covered by  a mild suggestion that "that is  hardly correct," or', "I think you  are mistaken."    Let us pass over  all the detail and  come to the  poihtr^-Are we truthful ?  '   What a nation is in its public  life that will it also be���������or worse  ���������in private.    For, if it is permitted to a man or men to be  untruthful where a hundred or  a thousand  are   listening,   and  where there is a similar number  of criticisms awaiting all statements,   what can   be expected  where there is little criticism or  none.    Let us come to the point,  and if shame is, called for let us  try to be ashamed.    It is bur only  hope.  < Before an election a man stands  on our platforms, tells us that  things were as they never have  been, that they are as he and we  know they are not, and as we  know and he knows they cannot  ever be.    After the election if  his candidature is successful���������  (we shall hear little more of him  if it is not)���������then,  no matter  what he has said,-what he has  promised, or what he has sworn,  we accept it quite as a matter of  course that not one of his promises will be lived up to and that  every statement  he has made  shall be fake.  It is not necessary for us to be  more explicit.    At every election  we vote for men who behave in  this fashion.    We. know it arid  they know it.    This is one of the  things of which the reform lies  in our own hands.    If we. want  truth, let us be truthful and we  shall get truth.    If "we do not  want truth,   are satisfied  with  lies,   if we are liars ourselves  then we are doing very well���������  we have only to continue on our  present lines.  On the other hand, it is still not  too late for us to resolve highly  that this-nation shall have a new  birth of freedom, and that [government of the people for the  people by the people shall not  perish from the earth.  Immediate action should be  taken by,j the Liberals of the  province in selecting candidates  for the" contest which is'/apt to  be sprung by the government at  anys time. -  ; For some time past the people  have everywhere shown a disposition . to*throw off a despotism  which is!rapidly becoming intolerable and the murmers of two  years ago_ has now. become as  thunder in the ears ;of Sir Richard McBride and Attorney-General Bowser, warning them that  their tenure of office is about to  come to a close.  A great political awakening,  the opening of eyes that have  been for years closed with indifference and apathy, has begun.  This is the'great opportunity  of every man who is interested  in seeing the affairs of the province properly administered, who  desire to see the most corrupt  and dishonest administration in  Canada replaced by responsible  government, who desires to see  the rich lands of the -province  pass into the hands of actual  settlers, w,ho after all form the  only firm basis upon which to  build up a country".  It is no light task that the Liberal party has on its hands, and  it is only by perfect organization  and strict party allegiance that  the present corrupt government  organization can be broken down.  Thought and reflection on the  past, and close observation of  what the government is doing,  and of what it is not doing, are  the silent yet potent allies of the  Liberals. ���������    -  The people are becoming aware  of the true character of the government. Its sins are finding it  out.  O      O       O      p      o  -. Sir Richard McBride has celebrated his arrival; in England  with an interview in the London  Morning Post endorsing Mr.  Borden's naval policy of contribution. The last time he was in  London he announced that "no  policy would be satisfactory to  the people of British Columbia  which did not provide for a fleet  unit on the Pacific coast.
