SATURDAY,: SEP. 18, 1915.  THE "COURIER" IS THREE  , '    .  /    YEARS OLD.  W/tth this   week's   issue   the  Courier enters upon its 4th  year.    It was established at a  time when every indication pointed to an" era of great, development at Bella Coola in anticipation of the building of a railroad  to the East, with this point as a  terminus. ��������� The war came and  the promoters found it impossible to raise.the money neces-  _ sary and, therefore, the project  was relegated to the rear, with  a probability of it being again  .- brought to the front when the  war is over and normal conditions   again   prevail.     But the  .,Courier found ja long stretch of  territory    unoccupied    by   any  newspaper, and therefore felt it  had a field to cover and also that  it-had a rnissiori to fulfill. ''  The field extends for hundreds  .   of miles, from ^Prince Rupert to  the Gulf   of   Georgia  and   the  country adjacent; its mission is  to" work for the development of  the province arid the promotion  of every good 5cause, that will  tend to the betterment of present  conditions.  Our humble efforts in these  directions have! met with gratifying success by the kindly reception given our paper by the  public, as.evidenced by the long  list of subscribers, which in spite  of hard times, shows no sign of  being" reduced. It is our intention to continue the good work,  and we'hope that as long as we  adhere to our ideals, the public  will be found still supporting th(  Courier and recommending it to  others,. We do;not expect to be  able to please everybody, opinions will always differ; but we  hope to retain the respect of oui  opponents by using only fair  arguments and means in dealing  With the issues and events of the  day, (  Height of\ Germany's  Ambition.  During our recent sojourn in  the United States we met several  highly cultured gentlemen, who  expressed hopejs that Germany  would be victorious irf this war,  because in her; was bound up  everything that was really worth  while both in I civilization and  Christianity. According to their  wide outlook, with the defeat of  Germany the world would suffer  a loss irreparable and would return to some extent to conditions  similar to those of the middle  ages.  These same superior people  had inside knowledge of the  causes of the war, their keen in-1  sight had beenjible to look below  the surface and had found it was  "perfidious Albion" which was  to blame.'   But the time' is-fast  coming when these men of lofty  minds  and  superior "knowledge  will find that they are as liable  to be deceived and misinformed  as their more humble brethren.  _ When the cloud and smoke of  battle are cleared away, the distractions of the tumult have subsided and  an  impartial  history  is  written  of   the   greatest  of  world tragedies, it shall be found,  as the evidence already indicates,'  that Germany started this war  to extend her power and dominion over  not only Europe, Asia  and Africa, but ��������� als6 over the  wholeof the Western Hemisphere  both North and South America.  The bold activities of the German-Americans in United States  are evidences that they rely on  being   supported   by  an   arm  stronger than that of the country  to which they have sworn allegiance.    They dare, through their  i-epresentatives, even use threats  against their adopted  country.  Alphonse.G.  Koelba, president  of the German-American Society  of New York, on returning from  a mission to Germany declares  in an interview: "In a just cause  German-Americans would stand  behind America, but in an unjust  cause they would not fight unless  they took up arms against America.    I know that because I am  president of their society."  The central committee of,the  National Liberal  party of Germany says:   "the "result of the  present war can only be a peace  which, by the extension- of our  boundaries  east  arid west and  Dverseas,  secures  us militarily,  politically and economically  igainst new attaeks and repays  the heavy sacrifices the German  people have so far made." ' The  Berliner Tageblatt   reprovingly  points out that the action of the  iNTational   Liberals    in   voicing  these   intentions   violates   "the  Government's edict against premature discussions of the aim of  the war.".  The above quoted expressions  of the National Liberals of Germany have Canada for their object. Germany is not seriously  concerned because of the attitude  che United States, with her Mon-  NOALUM  American war I was returning  from Santiago, Cuba, to Montauk  Point. On board there was a  military attache from Germany,  Count von Goetzen, a personal,  friend of the Kaiser.  "Apropos of a discussion between Count von Goetzen and  myself .on-the,friction between  Admiral Dewey and the German  admiral at Manila, Von Goetzen  said to me: 'I will tell you something which you better make  note of. I am' not afraid to tell  you this," because if .you did speak  of it,no.one would believe you,  and everybody would laugh at  roe "Doctrine, would assume in you. ���������  the event of Germany extending  her dictation to Canada. Germany in her great ambition has  designs on United States itself,  this is vouched for by authority  that is held in high esteem in  United States.  o     o     o    o    o  Germany's Designs on the  Americas.  The United States government  is stretching points to avoid being drawn into the vortex of the  war and their people is felicitating themselves upon the dexterity of the government in this respect   and   upon    the   financial  strength their country is gaining.  They do not realize that the Allies  in fighting against Germany, and  in making these stupendous sacrifices are not fighting for their  own freedom only; but also for  the freedom of the United States  and even that of the whole world.  In this connection the following  article will be read with interest:  In a contribution totheAmeri-  can  Army and "Naval  Journal,  William T. Hornaday, director of  the .New York Zoological Park  and a naturalist of world-wide |the Kaiser, and afterward  eminence, expresses"the conviction that if the Teutonic alliance  won the war Germany would levy  upon the United States a huge  indemnity on account of the sales  of munitions to the Entente  Allies. Mr. Hornaday bases his  opinion upon' a story told to him  by an army officer with whom he  campaigned in the West sixteen  years ago and whose veracity he  describes as unimpeachable as  that of Dr. Lyman Abbott. The  story for which Mr. Hornaday  vouches is as follows:  At the close of the Spanish-  " 'About fifteen   years from  now my 'country will start her  great war.    She will be in Paris  about two months after the commencement of hostilities.    Her  move on Paris will be but a step  to her real object, the crushing  of England.      Everything will  move like clockwork.    I speak of  this because of the connection it  will have with your own country.  " 'Some months after we finish  our work in Europe we will take  New York, and probably Washington, and hold them for some  time.    We will put your country  in  its place  with  reference to  Germany.   We do not propose to  take any of your territory,- but  we do intend to take $1,000,000,-  000 or more from New York and  other places; -and we will take  charge, of South America as far  as we wish to., I have no hostility  toward your country.    I like it;  but we have to go pur own way.  Don't forget .this, and about 15  years'from now remember it, and  it will interest you.' /  ��������� "Count von'Goetzen, it will be  found was a personal-friend of  was  employed on an importantmission  in China. He died some months  before the breaking out of this  war, probably a year. He was  married to an American."  This is what might be called  cumulative evidence. Count von  Goetzen was.quite right when  he stated no one would believe  the story. The trouble is that  after all the proofs which have  been published there are still  thousands who do not believe it.  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co, Ltd  VANCOUVER, B. C.

That there is hope for those  whom   the   prohibition   of   the  liquor traffic will  throw out of  lemplovment is indicated by the  j following story from Missouri.  ;    The question of voting out the  \ only saloon in town was the subject of discussion at a meeting  held for that purpose at the town  hall.    Many had been the speakers on both sides of the question  when towards the close of the  meeting a respectable looking old  gentleman   walked  to the platform and asked to be heard.  He  said he was the owner of the  saloon and had been engaged in  selling liquor to the townspeople  for the last twenty years.    He  had also tried his very best to  conduct his business in a manner  to cause as little offense as possible.    He had always  tried to  take his share of the public burdens, helped the poor and supported   benevolent  work.     The  saloon   was  his only  means of  supporting himself and family,  He was now old and could not  start into any  new  enterprise.  The result of votingout his business would very likely bring him  and his family to want and he  th.-ivfore would ask that he be  permitted to continue his saloon.  When he had resumed his seat  ;m elderly woman rose and said  '.die svmpathi/.ed with the saloon  keeper.    She   then   told   of   her  ���������1Kr residence  in  the place, of  10w she was married  to a very  .rood man. but who had one fault.  V loved  his dram.    When   not  at work he would spend his time  !uul money at this the last speaker's place of business with the  result that very little of his earn-  in���������s came to the support of his  f:ln,iI v.    She therefore had been  uhlb'ed   ever since  this  saloon  rurstarted   twenty  years  ago  to take in washing.    She knew  if   the   saloon  was  voted  ,or   husband   would   not  Geokkkky K.

"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.

Nobody begrudges him his title. He is as perfect a Knight as ever wore white  satin breeches and a model major-  general���������in fact a 1915 model.  It is true that many questions  had to be laid over or only partly  dealt with/- because the responsible minister was out of   the  country, but now that he has returned the public may look for  quick action.    The matter of a  disablement fund, for example,  has hung fire while the Major-  General was having n good time  in .London, but now that he is  back on the spot the movement  will doubtless receive a new impulse.     Other matters  w'hich  press," which have pressed in fact  during,, the whole long term ol  Sir Sam's summer holidays, are  vocational training for our partly  disabled heroes,  the placing of  returned veterans in jobs at least  as good as they left, and perhaps  the establishment of half a dozen  soldiers' homes to   shelter the  utterly helpless.     All  THE "COURIER"  GIVES THEM.  ADVERTISERS-  Now is the time to keep  your name before the  public. No manufacturer or wholesalehouse can  afford to let slip the opportunity of increased  sales that ipublic advertising brings.  REAL ESTATE booms in the  cities have come and gone.

We will do it right.  summer  the cripples, the maimed, blinded,  shattered by the war, have been  drifting back and some of them  "complain bitterly of their treatment.    Canada sent them to battle proudly enough and thought  much of glory and  things like  that but failed to provide for the  wreckage.   Now that the Major-  General has come back well and  strong after the hardships of the  London season- he-will probably  look into this question.   It is.as  much the work of the Militia Department as  the complete outfitting of .the battalions that enlist for the front.  Another matter which needs  mending is "a certain favoritism  which Sir Sam will be surprised  to learn still exists. He probably thought because statesmen on  both sides of politics were laying  aside their party differences and  joining hands to recruit soldiers  for King and country that the  Militia Department and the much  vaunted Purchasing Committee  were running their business on  DUILD UP YOUR HOME  ^ TOWN.

If the  Major-Genpral had been in Otta-  wa instead of four thousand miles  of blue ocean away he would  know that where appointments  and contracts are concerned the  old traditions are, in force. Commissions in the army are like  kisses���������they go by favor. So do  the contracts. The only thing  to be shared with/.the Opposition  is patriotic speeches.   .  Canadian soldiers are marching about, some in rags and some  in bags, not from choice but because the militia authorities have  not supplied them with uniforms.  The contracts for uniforms seem  to be awarded on the principle  that the man with the pull gets  the job even if he has no plant  while the man  with the plant  gets no job until he develops a  proper pull.   This naturally, holds  things up for it often happens  that the man with the pull and  the "man with the plant do not  synchronize, as Finance-Minister  White would say.    When these  things are called to his attention  the Major-General  may Be expected  to ask  what difference  who makes the soldier's coat, so  long as it coyers a brave heart.  As a soldier himself he will understand that courage and loyalty  recognize no party lines and that  a man will fight as well with Grit  khaki on his back as Tory.  As a gallant Knight Sir Sam  will brush all these petty motives  aside and insist on the soldiers  having the right kind of clothes  regardless   of   the   shops   they  come from.    The man, with the  seat out of his pants who has  just joined the army naturally  yearns for the raiment of his new  calling.    So does the other man  whose trousers may be intact and  whom  glory drives.    Both are  entitled to the self-respect and  the advertising of their loyal intentions which a uniform implies.  Personally I do not believe that  the   uniform   will   affect   their  votes one way or the other.   The  uniform is skin deep but party  convictions are a good deal deeper than that.  The Major-General would be  well advised.to expel this fear  which haunts the Militia Department and -the Purchasing Commission���������the fear that a Tory  soldier might change his mind  because his fighting clothes came  from a Grit factory. There's  nothing in it.' The chances are  he never thinks of his clothes,  so long as he has 'em and they  hang together. And even if the  subject were called to his attention I doubt if he would pause in  the heat of battle to argue out  its political bearings.  Yes, Sir Sam will need to use  his eyes���������those sharp,- glancing,  Napoleon eyes, which threaten  and command everybody but the  Toronto Telegram.    If he uses  them as he ought he will soon  discover that the system of granting provisional lieutenancies to  eager young Conrervatives who  take a short snap course at Kingston to qualify, while at the same  time seasoned officers are turned  down for places at the front because they happen to be Liberal-,  is not a square deal.   . This system deliberately discourages the  patriotic impulses  of   half the  population.   And it is not confined to lieutenants  either.    It  alfects all ranks.    There is right  now at least one Major-General  who is suffering from this sort  of injustice.   Sir Sam once had  experience at General Huttbn's  hands of the flouts that patient  merit may be obliged to take from  those in authority.    He had, as  we remember,  to go to South  Africa on his own   hook   and  mighty grateful we are to him  for settling the Boer war as soon  as he did���������he and Turpin.    But  did  he learn  the lesson?   The  lesson that you can't keep a herd  down and you mustn't try.  Sir Sam  is in great luck, in  great luck to be Major-General  and Minister of Militia forCan-  ada in the greatest war the world  has ever seen, in"great luck to  have a united   country  behind  him and an Opposition kind even  to his faults, but it is up to him  to use his great luck generously.
