Brewster and family arrived from Rivers "Inlet after  having spent the summer at the  Brunswick cannery.  The fishing for Cohoes at Bella  Coola is going on at a satisfactory rate. It is expected the  cannery will be operating another  two weeks. ^  ,  ' The Lysdahl Sewing Circle announces'to an interested public  that on Saturday, October 21, its  annual sale will be held at the  Lower Bella Coola School.  Refreshments will be served  to all comers without money and  without price. -'  ��������� The proceeds of the sale will  be devoted to benevolentobjects;  a part going to the Red Cross  and Patriotic Funds.  In the past political history of  our country, governments have  gone down to defeat, but we do  not call to mind an election where  every cabinet minister have suffered such a fate.    .:.,,      .;������������������'..'���������;/:,  It was reserved for the Bowser  ���������'government to go through-such  an experience.  The premier was overwhelmingly defeated in his home town,  .where an honest endeavor oh'his  part would have received a sympathetic consideration.  ; Corporal Randolph Saugstad in  a letter tells of the arrival of the  102nd Battalion, of. which he,  with many other Bella Coola men,  is a member, in France on'Aiig.  14. He believed that his regiment would be in the fight before  many days.   This community had the pleasure of enjoying during the last  week a visit from Mr. . Fred  Stork of Prince Rupert. As announced in our last issue he aiv  rived Tuesday last week for the  purpose of strengthening the  faithful in their allegiance to the  Liberal party and of converting  the few shortsighted followers  of Bowser.  While here he held two meetings, one at the Mackenzie schooi  and the other at the Colony Hall.  We did not have the pleasure oi  attending his meeting at the  school and cannnot tell whether  the townsite element supporting  Bowser was vouchsafed, as the  result of the' argument presented, the great privilege of having  their eyes opened to the errors  of their way. But of the meeting at Hagensborg there is no  doubt, he took the large meeting  by storm and if there were Bow-  serites at the beginning of the  meeting very few of that persuasion "left the hall at the end  of it.  At eight o'clock Saturday evening, nearly all the people.of  Hagensborg and the country for  miles around were there, not excepting the ladies, and Jt was  with a broad sndile that B. Bryr  nildsen,. president of the local  club, called them.eetingtoorder.  He first called upon C. Carlson,  who told of the iniquitous vote  plugging alleged to have taken  place at the by-election in Van-1  couver. Mr. Carlson held the  audience quiet for about twenty  minutes; but when the story was  finished the applause was general. This fact was taken as evidence that the story "went  home." , '\ '    .  Then the speaker of the evening, Mr. Fred Stork, was introduced and held the audience  spellbound for over an hour in an  exposure of the extravagance of  the government. , His speech  was frequently interrupted by  the plaudits^of the eager listeners. The campaign has now  passed intohistoryand therefore  not necessary to give the,many  telling points Tie made.  - He was followed by Capt. W.  D. Stephenson who, in a short  speech, expressed his opinion of  the government, which was far  from favorable'and the applause  he received testified to the fact  that, there were others., w.ho  shared his opinions.  . i;The meeting closed ^shortly  after 10 o'clock by the singing  of the National Anthem.  ' Mr. and Mrs. S. Le C. Grant  and family desire to express,  by the medium of the Courier,  their sincere thanks to the many  friends who have sent such kind  message,of sympathy and condolence in their recent great  trial.

A Liberal Victory  Last Thursday's elections turn  ed out to be a veritable landslide  in favor of the Liberal candi-  . dates.' Bbwserism met the people  at bhe'pollsand met its Waterloo:,  ��������� Vancouver, the'home town of  the premier and the scene of the  alleged plugging, defeated every  ���������one of the government candidates  with large majorities.  '''Victoria, the seat of,thegov-J  eminent, also expressed1'its disapproval of the administration  by electing all the Liberal candi-  dates, with H. C. Brewster at  the head of the poll.  Mr. Bowser's chief lieutenants,  as near as the incomplete returns .time when it'would have been  at hand indicate, went down to'perfectly convenient for all con-  disastQr with  the'exception of'cerned   to   bring  the   exhibit's  raining transportation.  The inconvenience experienced  in reaching Prince Rupert because of no direct communication  is nothing new. We have been  under the same difficulty in former years and it has not proven  insuperable, and it seems to us  that with a little goodwill, energy and accommodation on the  part of those in charge a way out  should have been found.  We acknowledge that last year  it proved a rather, expensive  affair to our exhibitors to get the  produce shipped to Namu to eon:  nect with the Prince Rupert  steamer, as they ,had,Ho .hire' a  a launch at a rather stiff price  at the last moment because the  -������ ) ���������. ���������>,  Dominion launch, which had  been ��������� promised, could not'be  floated whe;n wanted. ', ���������   *  But it does seem that, if, noth-  ing better offered',- the Dominion  launch might have been secured  at this time if the Indian agent,  who has it in, charge, had been  approached. - The launch isown-  od by a government, which shows  its keen interest in 'agriculture  in every conceivable 'way and in  order to promote it spends many  thousands'of dollars every year.  Under these circumstances there  would be no danger of' anyone  incurring the displeasure of the  Dominion government for appro:,  priatingtheuseof its .launch for  jthepurposeof conveying the exhibits to Namu or Bella Bella to  connect with* the Prince Rupert  steamer.  .We have learned-that this particular launch went to "Bella Bella on government business at a  r\so ALUM  Mr. Ross at Prince George.  In this district Pattullo leads  with a substantial majority.  Bella Coola for the first time in  nearly twenty years gave a  handsome majority for a Liberal  candidate. The indications at  present are that the Conservatives have elected about ten of  their candidates.  Prohibition and Women's suffrage carried.  along.'  As it is, Bella Coola is out of  the race for this year and it is  no use crying over spilt milk.  It is necessary to point out,  however, that we should on all  occasions try to co-operate'in  every- effort made to promote  our chief industry. That we do  not take part in the exhibition  may inflict injury on Bella Coola  and will certainly cause disap-  This election proved to^be a"'pointment and vexation in quar-  purifying tempest which s'wept ters where considerable money  out a corrupt government, and  elevated our womanhood to'her  rightful position.  O      O      0    ' o   ,  o  The Courier's Birthday  While the'Courier'is celebrating the victory of a cause which  it has persistently and consistently advocated against strong  odds during its whole existence  it also, with the publication of  this issue, celebrates its fourth  birthday.  It is glad in its belief that its  efforts may have contributed a  mite towards this desirable consummation and hopes that it  shall, by the continued goodwill  of the people, be permitted to  continue to. assist in the establishment of the, welfare of.our  ��������� land and our people.  o     o     6'  ��������� o '   o  Princz Rupert Fair.  '    Next week the Fair will  be  held at Prince Rupert.    It is no  doubt that it will prove the success it has been on former occa-j  sions.    But we learn with deep1  regret that it has been decided;  that Bella Coola send no exhibits'  this year.  This decision has not been,  reached because of a failure of-  crop or inferiority of produce,  but because of difficulties of ob-  has been spent and energy displayed in promoting the exhibition and we hope that the people  of Bella Coola will be spared a  similar occurrence in the future.  O      ������      0      o      o  The Value of a Political  Campaign.  When thisissueof the Courier  reaches our readers the political  campaign will be over. The result of the election may not be  known definitely because of the  soldiers vote taken in Europe;  but whether the result is known  or. not no amount of argument  will,henceforth have any efl'ect  i'h the fhial decision. The die is  cast; and very" few people will  feel regret that the protracted  contest, almost akin to a war-  fare; is over'.'  Many people look upon a political campaign as a necessary evil;  but such is not the case. Any-  thing that lias beneficial results  is pot aii evil. A tree is either  good,or bad according to its  fruits.  . ''And the effects' of ,a political  campaign, even ' though it be  bitter, are good.'\  It is educational. A people to  whom has, been entrusted the  task' of , self-government must  necessarily know the fundamental principles underlying such  government. They must know  that the affairs of the country  must beVJministered by honest  and capable men;'that it must be  run in the interest of the people  as a whole; that the resources of  the country-be conserved and  utilized- in a manner to bring  prosperity. In short, thegqvern-  ment must be run according to  righteous principles.  And a political campaign brings  these principles home to the people in a manner which nothing-  else can. In a fierce campaign  everybody, even the indifferent  and self-ce'/itered, are aroused to  take an   interest   and  express  their views at the polls.  And in the abstract, the people  can be trusted to choose what  they believe is right.  A campaign is purifying. As  long as human nature is frail,  men who cannot resist temptation will find their way, to some  extent, into political prominence:  The only thing that has a tendency to keep them in cheek is  the fact that their every action  is watched and if not up to the  standard set by the opposition  will be subjected to public criticism, and may result in disgraceful retirement from service.  The bar of public opinion, before which these men are placed  at each election, ,is feared and  therefore' has a tendency of  keeping our public men in the  "straight and narrow way."  That it does not always'do so  is a well-known fact.   There are  some men who think themselves  sufficiently clever to be able to  justify their acts, even though  they are shady.    But they never  succeed in the long run.    The  fierce light of public opinion will  sooner' or later retire them to  deserved  oblivion;     They  are  cast out and their places filled  by men who are supposed to be  more worthy.   And in this way  the purifying process is carried  on by a political campaign and  succeeding elections.  The voters  are educated in the principles of  government and .informed as to  the condition of public affairs  during, the campaign, arid they  rebuke and eliminate the evils  on one hand and approve and  establish ^what   is   considered  right on the other in the election  following.  ' For these' reasons we believe  that the campaign concluded this  week has not been anecessary  evil, but a time of purifying and  refreshing of the. public conscience and an education in self-  government.

The unusual wet  summer, especially so during the  time of haying, has impressed  upon the minds of the farmers  the need of preserving the hay  in a different way than-that of j  drying it in the wind and the sun.  And therefore their attention  has been forcibly drawn to the  silo as a means of saving the hay  crop. As a consequence, it is  believed a number of silos will  be built in the valley and that  being the case we deem it timely  to publish extracts from an article in the Agricultural Journal  on silos from the pen of H.

Vancouver, the home town of  the.premier and the scene of the  alleged plugging, defeated every  one of thegovernment candidates  with large majorities.  Victoria, the seat of the government, also expressed its disapproval of the administration  by electing all the Liberal candidates, wjth H. C. 'Brewster at  . the head of the poll.  Mr. Bowser's chief lieutenants,  as near as the incomplete returns 'time - when it would have been  ��������� ' 1  at hand indicate, went down to j perfectly convenient for all con-  disaster with  the" exception of.cerried   to   bring   the   exhibits.  taining transportation.  The inconvenience experienced  in reaching Prince Rupert because of no direct communication  is nothing new. We have been  under the same difficulty in former years and it has not proven  insuperable, .and it seems to us  that with a little goodwill, energy and accommodation on the  part of those in charge a way out  should have been found.  We acknowledge that lastyear  it proved a rather expensive  affair to our exhibitors to get,the  produce shipped to Namu to connect with the Prince Rupert  steamer, as'they0 had to hire a  a launch at a rather stiff price  at the last moment because the  Dominion launch, which had  been promised, could" not be  floated when wanted.  But it does seem that, if nothing better offered, the Dominion  launch might have been secured  at this time if the Indian agent,  who has it in charge; had been  approached. The launch is owned by a. govern me n.t which shows  its keen interest in agriculture  in^every conceivable way and in  order to promote it spends many  thousands of dollars every year.  Under these circumstances there  would be no danger of anyone  incurring the displeasure of the  Dominion government for appropriating the use of its launch for  the purpose of conveying the exhibits to Narriu or Bella Bella to  connect with the Prince Rupert  steamer.  We have learned, that this particular launch went to Bella Bella on.government business at a  NO ALUM  \C*ORJEDj  ^^FLE Pl^MNLMT7^  ,%V7  PRINTEDON THE,  Sfc  ^WHITEST.

Next week the Fair will be  held at Prince Rupert. It is no  doubt that it will prove the success it has been on former occa-  sions. But we learn with deep'  regret that it has been decided  that Bella Coola send no exhibits  this year.  This decision   has   not   been t  reached because of a failure of  crop or inferiority of produce,  hut because of difficulties of ob-  or not no amount of argument  will henceforth have any effect  in the final decision. The die is  cast; and very few people will  feel regret that the protracted  contest, almost akin to a warfare, is over.  Many people look upon a political campaign as a necessary evil;  but such is not the case. Anything that has beneficial results  is not an evil. A tree is either  good or bad according to its  fruits.'  And. the effects .of a political  campaign,' even though it be  bitter, are good.  It is educational. A people to  whom has been entrusted the  task ofv self-government must  necessarily know the fundamental principles underlying such  government. They must know  that the affairs of the country  must be administered by honest  and capable nren;xthat it must be  run in the interest Qf the people  as a whole; that the resources of  the country be conserved and  utilized in a manner to bring  prosperity. In short, the government must be run according to  righteous principles.  And a political campaign brings  these principles home to the people in a manner which nothing  else can. In a fierce campaign  everybody, even the indifferent  and self-centered, are aroused to  take  an   interest  and   express  their views at the polls.  And in the abstract, the people  can be trusted to choose what  they believe is right.  A campaign is purifying. As  long as human nature is frail,  men who cannot resist temptation will find their, way, to some  extent, into political prominence.  The only thing that has a tendency to keep them in check is  the fact that jtheir every action  is watched and if not up to the  standard set by the opposition  will be subjected to public criticism, and may result in disgraceful retirement from service.  The bar of'public opinion, before which tjhese men are placed  at each election, is feared and  therefore has a tendency of  keeping our public men in the  "straight and narrow way."  That it does not always do so  is a well-known fact. There are  some men who think themselves  sufficiently clever' to be able to  justify their acts, even though  they are shady. But they never  succeed in the long run. ^The  fierce light Qf public opinion will  sooner or later retire them to  deserved oblivion. They are  cast out and their places filled  by men who are supposed to be  more worthy. And in this way  the purifying process is carried  on by a political campaign and  succeeding elections. The voters  are-educated in the principles of  government and informed as to  the condition of, public affairs  during the campaign, and they  rebuke and eliminate the evils  on one hand and approve and  establish what is considered  right on the other in the electron  following.  For these reasons we believe  that the campaign concluded this  week has not been a necessary  evil, but a time of purifying and  refreshing of the public conscience and an education in self-  government.

As the work of the summer  and fall season is drawing to a  close it is time on the part of the  farmers to  begin planning for  the next year.   The unusual wet  summer, especially so during the  time of haying,  has impressed  upon the minds of the farmers  the need of preserving the hay  in a different way than that of  drying it in the wind and the sun.  And therefore their attention  has been forcibly drawn to the  silo as a means of saving the hay  crop.     As  a consequence, it is  believed a number of silos will  be built in  the valley and that  being the case we deem it timely  to publish extracts from an article in the Agricultural Journal  on silos from the pen of H. 0.

HTHE 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.

Silage An Economical Feed    -  (Continued from column 2, page 3.)  bered, acted as judge at the agricultural    exhibition   in    Bella  Coola last year:  The silo which we recommend  is built of 2 x 6 inch staves which  are held in place by 5-8 inch iron  hoops.    The staves may be taken  from almost any kind of lumber,  provided they are straight and  free from knots.   Silos builtwith  rough,   undressed 2 x 6's have  given good results, although the  dressed,   sized,   tongued   and  grooved   staves   make   a   more  lasting and better appearing silo.  The reasons why this type of  silo is recommended are:  First: The cost of the above  stave silo is so small as to bring  it within the reach of almost any  farmer who needs a silo.  Second: The average fanner  building his first silo does so  usually more as an experiment  than anything else. He builds  a small silo, and if that proves  satisfactory he can pull the small  silo down  and  build  a larger,  Canada's Boys Want Smokes!  ������farrTg������*-������-j.i ^nwix-^yv^  i^wrt u-w-i -|| mm^h in m   i| | |   hi  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 public advertising brings.

Third: Those who have had  the stave silos in operation for a  number of years claim that the  stave silo will last at least fifteen  or twenty years. It is also claimed that it is the most economical  silo to build.   .  -- The leasons-why a farmer  shouldput up a silo on his farm  are as follows:      ��������� ���������'���������.- ���������-,  First: In those districts where  June rains spoil the first crop of  clover or alfalfa hay it proves an  efficient means,of saving same.  Second: The silo is the best-  known way to store succulent  feed for the winter feeding of  live stock.  Third: The silo furnishes a  feed of uniform quality. J  Fourth: Where a summer silo  is used, the farmer need hot fear  late summer droughts.  Fifth: Crops which would be  useless for haymaking ���������i.e.,"  thistles; and other weeds���������.may  be preserved and changed into  palatable food.  Sixth: More stock can be kept  on a certain area where silage is  fed than is otherwise the case.  Seventh: Less labor, therefore,  is needed on a farm when a silo  is used.  .Every farmer who has four or  more first-class dairy cows, or  who is fattening or wintering  eight beef animals, together with  the average number of other  farm stock, should build a silo  for the storage of succulent feed,  unless he can produce his succulent feed more economically in  the form of roots.  No farmer should build a silo  who cannot grow the feed to fill  it or who has not the stock to  produce suitable returns from  the feed fed; i.e., who keeps  scrub stock. .
