It  is reported that the August catch  surpassed"any previous month,  asi ;f6.r the first fifteen days of  that month over 2,000,000 pounds  of halibut had already been marketed.   :  pathy with striking carmen have  thus far failed. ."  S. S. Camosun arrived in port  Sunday afternoon about two o'clock. Her stay at the government wharf was shorter than  usual as her cargo for Bel la Coola  was light.

In due course of time the  ladies will find consideiable en-  tertaintment in view ing the new  arrivals in the drygoods line.    -  Rev. W. H. Gibson left last  Wednesday on a two weeks trip  to Kitimat on .the Dominion  launch Charles Todd. He went  in charge of some Indian children who will attendschool at that  place.          * B. F. Norton the popular itinerant photographer, after spending the summer in our midst getting views of our magnificent  scenery, left, last Sunday for  Vancouver. '_ ,  ' Albert Hammer of Noosatsum,  visited our town last Saturday  and Sunday. He brought with  him the Ayrshire bull, loaned the  community by the government,  and had it shipped on the Camosun.  i - --  L The .Vancouvet; Province records the fact that Hagensborg  has the distinction of giving the  largest majority, in proportion  to the number of votes cast, for  Prohibition and Woman Suffrage  in the province. It will please  these staunch supporters of reform to learn that these measures  have carried by good majorities.  Percy Gadsden  has returned  from his trip to Kleena Kleene.  He was in charge of the ballot  boxes both ways. ' He had a very  narrow escape as only one lone  Conservative vote was cast at  that polling place while all the  others were recorded in favor of  |VIi\ Pattullo.  John Flevvin of Port Simpson,  called at Bella Coola last Tuesday on his round through this  partof the district gathering the  ballot boxes.  Latest reports to hand inform  us' that roadbosses throughout  the province not making good in  the election of last week are falling by the wayside left and right,  some of them are dumped into  ditches dug by themselves. Mr.  W. J. Bowser must be either in  a bad mood or else the money is  givingout. It was expected that  all road work would quit as soon  as election was over, but no one  ever thought that it would stop  so suddenly. Bowser's decree  has evidently not reached Bella  Coola yet, as work commenced  during the summer is still going  on.    'The Liberals of the townsite  had their innings as against the  Conservatives on the night of the  election. - The Conservatives,  confident of victory for Bowser  and his candidates, had arranged  a feast in celebration of the occasion. But as events turned  out contrary to their fond expectations a large share of the  viands remained untouched and  the Liberals enjoyed the discomfiture of their too optimistic opponents.     Talking about elections it is  surely relevant to mention the  now famous telegram received by several leading Conservatives the evening before election, and signed by the Conservative candidate for member of  the Dominion parliament, J. E.  Merryfield.  It .was sent no doubt for the  purpose of strengthening those  weaker brethren who would fain  leave the sinking ship.arid seek  safety with the winning party.  And that the telegram accomplished iis purpose is evidenced  by the fact that several voters  who, before election, had signified their intention of leaving  Bowser to shift for himself, right  royally came to( his support on  election day.  And any one reading the telegram cannot blame them for  changing their minds. For the  benefit of our readers we print  it below, and we hope that in the'  face of such alluring'prospects  to the faithful the Liberals will  forbear passing harsh judgment  upon their'unsophisticated fellow  citizens:  (COPY OF TELEGRAM.)  Prince Rupert, B. C.,,September 13, 1916.  Never in provincial campaign such encouraging reports  received party's success. Liberals final rally here was a  frost, audience less hundred and fifty. Premier wires us  he is delighted with the loyal support accorded him  throughout Province, and absolutely assured of sweeping  victory. ��������� Soldiers report ninety per cent voted for government. William Manson certain of handsome majority.  However, let us not fail from overconfidence but, wot k  unceasingly until last vote is polled.   '  '     (Signed) J. E. Merryfield.  H.. C. Brewster (the next premier of British Columbia)  .   and John Oliver (the next minister of agriculture).  From a photo taken in, Bella Coola during their  visit in April, 1914.!  What came very near being a  serious acccident occurred on the  road near T. Draney's house on  Tuesday.  Mrs. Draney had just hitched  the horse to the buggy and was  driving out to road having three  of her smallest children in ]the  buggy with her, when it seems  the horse must have been frightened by an automobile passing  by, as shortly afterwards it started on a runaway. In turning a  corner the buggy capsized and  the occupants were hurled to the  ground sustaining painful although not serious injuries.  A Kimsquit Indian engaged in  logging on the-inlet was brought  to the hospital last week, having  sustained a broken leg.  John Creswell, the intrepid  mail carrier, writes from Atnar-  ko of -the road work carried on  there by Mr. Morrison and crew:  "Jack Morrison and his gang  are doing good work and great  credit is due the boys for the  showing they have made in a  stiff piece of work in so short a  time. Tom Draney hauled the  tools and camp outfit up. John  Nelson is making a world record  with his shovel, whilst William  Nelson and Jack -Shafer are  blasting their way through  gigantic boulders and projecting  bedrock. With such Titantic  workers to back him, Jack Morrison will soon be well along on  his way past the Heckman Ranch.  A cablegram received byC. II.  Urseth on Wednesday announces that Ingvald Urseth, Mr.  Urseth's son, was wounded on  September 8th. He was with  the 102nd Battalion on active  duty in France. Details are  anxiously awaited.  Distribution of Seeds.  By instructions, of the Hon.  Minister of Agriculture a distribution .'of superior sorts of grain  and potatoes will be made during  the coming winter and spring to  Canadian farmers. The samples  for general distribution will consist of spring wheat, about 5 lbs;  white oats, about 4 Ibe;' barley,  about 5 lbs; and field peas, about  5 lbs. These will be sent out  from Ottawa. A distribution 'of  potatoes in samples of about 3'  lbs. ,will be carried on from several of the experimental:farms,  the CentralfFarmat Ottawa supplying only the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. All samples  will be sent free by mail.  Only one sample of grain and  one of potatoes can be sent to ���������  each farm. As .the supply of  seed is limited, farmers are advised to apply early. Requests  received after the end of Decern-  * f i  ber will probably be too late.  Anyone desiring a sample  should write (post free) to the  Dominion Cerealist, Experimental Farm, Ottawa, for an application blank.  J. H. Presdale, director  Dominion Experimental Farms.  NOTICE.

Mr. Brewster's Message.  It must be gratifying to every  sincere lover of good government to know that the extravagance, duplicity and recklessness  hitherto so rampant in the management of provincial affairs will  soon be a thing of the past, and  that a sane, prudent, honestgov-  and carry on the-work of reconstruction. And that this is a  task that will require great skill  in statemanship is so manifest  that few will envy the premier-  elect the responsible and burdensome position in which he is  placed.  And that he feels the difficulties of his task is shown by the.  message he issued to the people  of British Columbia on the night  of the election,, after he had  learned the result.  But honesty of purpose, determination and energetic action,  together with the loyal support  and confidence of the great majority of the people, will make it,  possible to rehabilitate our af  fairs.  mmmms  In his message Mr. H. C. Brewster first thanks the electors of  all political ' faiths who gave  their' support to the forces which  are working for the betterment  of conditions in this the greatest  of the provinces of Canada. He  makes special mention of the  many Conservatives who rose  above party and in the interest  of, good government gave him  their support.  He then goes on to say:  "We intend to fulfil'our promises and we know that behind us  are the people of the province  in an overwhelming proportion.  1 believe that in spite of the fact  that a considerable vote has been  cast today for the Bowser candidates, we'shall give this province  such a clean and efficient and  progressive adibinistration that  we shall secure their support at  the next.appeal to'the people."  '"It is ho sinecure that we are  about to succeed to. It will require strenuous work and unremitting attention to the affairs  of the province to pull it out ot  the hole into which it has been  plunged by the misgovernment  of yearsl and in that work we  need the aid and loyal backing  of every citizen. I am satisfied  that there is not a man or woman  in British Columbia today who  does not desire its moral and  material advancement. Many of  them have not seen eye to eye  with us, but I am convinced that  the Liberal government which is  soon tp'r step into power in this  province will be so imbued with  a spirit of honesty and will be  so efficient that there is not one  i  of either sex, and both will be  our constituents when we appeal  to the people next, but will have  no hesitation in retaining us in  power!,  "I pledge my every exertion  to the best ih terests of the people,  lean pledge them, too, that every  man whom 1 shall ask to join  my cabinet, will be animated by  the same ambition. The Liberal  government will give the people  the good government they so  much want. 1 believe that in  what we do we will have the  people solidly with us:  "Many, of the Liberal party  will regret that the Prime Minister met defeat in Vancouver, as  we are all anxious that there  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co.

Hut the result of the election  showed that wherever the facts  0  were placed strongly before the  people the plugging charges  against the Liberals fell to the  ground.  Mr. Bowser at his meeting in  Prince Rupert, came out strongly  in his accusations against the  Liberal organization in Vancouver on the plugging scandal. But  at this, his audience became so  turbulent that he could not proceed with his speech; then some  one proposed threer cheers for  Macdonald which were given  with,a force "to raise the roof."  As a result of this show of the  opinionof the audience Mr. Bowser turned to another subject.  At Nanaimo, A. E. Planta who  testified against Macdonald before the legislative committee  and at theGosden trial, was Conservative candidate for legislature. Although' he has been  mayor of the city for several  terms he received less than half  as many votes as his Liberal opponent. ,  And last but not least, at Vancouver, where the voters were  best acquainted with the facts,           , t      i������       i u        i i j   > full quantity of merchantable coal mined and pay  Mr. MaCdOnald, WhO WaS Charged  ;, the royalty thereon.

XjbTHAT ambition more noble than to  be a producer of  the necessaries  of life?  Bella Coola  farmers are independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  "THE REASONS for this  enviable condi-  ���������*-1 tioh 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, garden0and 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.  1.00  .50  (i  ii  .75  .50  11  .50  .25  <<  <<  ���������' <<  it  <<  i i  X  2.00  1.00  .75  1.00  .50  .25  .50     .25  VAIN TALKS OF PEACE.  ; The neutrals and the pro-,Ger-  mans are very much disturbed  over the wickedness of the Entente  Allies  in  continuing the  war.      Germany,   according to  them,   is  anxious   to  conclude  peace and it is only the cussed-  ness of. the Allies which is responsible for further bloodshed.  * But ,these good people fail to  recognize the fact that Germany's terms of peace carry with  them, the recognition of her right  to violate treaties, to keep up a  murdershop   in. the   centre  of  Europe, to retain territory she  has robbed,  in short, to force  her opponents to conclude peace  on unrighteous terms.  But in spite of enormous sacrifices made and yet demanded the  Entente Allies' sense of righteousness is of a different kind,  this war is now a war against  war and will not be concluded  willingly until compensation to  Belgium, and Serbia be guaranteed and a lasting peace to the  world assured.

It is one thing to grow,a crop  to perfection,' and another to  prepare it for exhibition. Too  often the exhibitis show excellent quality, but are marked  down on account of lack of careful preparation or arrangement.  It stands to reason that if they  are not prepared in a careful way  the good points are obscured.  The best idea to work to is to  put up your product in the best  ! condition, to market.

The Vancouver Province records the fact that Hagensborg  has the distinction of giving the  largest majority, in proportion  to the number of votes cast, for  Prohibition and Woman Suffrage  in the province.

Mr.  W. J. Bowser must be either in  a bad mood or else the money is  giving out. It was expected that  all road work would quit as soon  as election was over/ but no one  ever thought that it would stor.  so suddenly. Bowser's decree  has evidently not reached Bella.

What came very near being a  serious acccident occurred on the  road near T. Draney's house on  Tuesday.  Mrs. Draney had just hitched  the horse to the buggy and was  driving out to road having three  of her smallest children in .the  buggy with her, when it seems  che horse must have been frightened by an automobile passing  by, as shortly afterwards it star-  Led on a runaway. In turning a  corner the buggy capsized and  che occupants were hurled to the  ground sustaining painful although not serious injuries.  A Kimsquit Indian engaged in  logging on the inlet was brought  to the hospital last week, having  sustained a broken leg.  John Creswell, the intrepid  mail carrier, writes from Atnar-  ko of the road work carried on  there by Mr. Morrison and crew:  "Jack Morrison and his gang  are doing good work and great  credit is due the boys for the  showing they have made in a  stiff piece of work in so short a  time. Tom Draney hauled the  tools and camp outfit up. John  Nelson is making a world record  with his shovel, whilst William  Nelson and Jack Shafer are  blasting their way through  gigantic boulders and projecting  bedrock. With such Titantic  workers to back him, Jack Morrison will soon be well along on  his way past the Heckman Ranch.  A cablegram received l.yC. H.  Urseth on Wednesday announces that lngvald Urseth, Mr.  Urseth's son,' was wounded on  September 8th. He was with  the 102nd Battalion on active  duty in France. Details are  anxiously awaited.  Distribution of Seeds.  By instructions of the Hon.  Minister of Agriculture a distribution of superior sorts of grain  and potatoes will be made during  the coming winter and spring to  Canadian farmers. The samples  for general distribution will consist of spring wheat, about 5 lbs;  white oats, about 4 lbs; barley,  about 5 lbs; and field peas, about  5 lbs. These will be sent out  from Ottawa. A distribution cf  potatoes in samples of about 3  lbs. will be carried on from several of the experimental ������������������fairns,  the Central Farm at Ottawa supplying only the provinces of Ontario and Quebec. All samples  will be sent free by mail.  Only one sample of grain and  one of potatoes can be sent to  each farm. As the supply of  seed is limited, farmers are advised to apply early. Requests  received after the end of December will probably be too late.  Anyone desiring a sample  should write (post free) to the  Dominion Cerealist, Experimental Farm, Ottawa, for an application blank.  J. H. Presdale,.director  Dominion Experimental Farms.

It must be gratifying to every  sincere lover of good government to know that the extrava^  gance, duplicity and recklessness  hitherto so rampant in the management of provincial affairs will  soon be "a thing of the past, and.  that a sane, prudent, honest gov-  and carry on the work of reconstruction. And. that this is a  task that^will require great skill  in statemanship is so manifest  that few will envy the premier-  elect the responsible and burdensome position in which he is  placed.  And that he feels the difficulties of his task is shown by the  message he issued to the people  of British Cohmibia on the night  of the election, after he had  learned the result.  But honesty of .purpose, determination and energetic action,  together with the loyalt support  and confidence of the grefft majority of the people, will make it  possible to rehabilitate our affairs.  In'his message Mr. H. C. Brewster first thanks the electors of  all political' faith's   who   gave  their support to the forces which  are working for the betterment  of conditions in this the greatest  of the provinces of Canada.   He  makes special   mention   of the  many Conservatives   who rose  above party and in the interest  of good  government gave him  their support.������  He then goes on to say:  "Weintend to fulfil our promises and we know that behind us  are the people of the province  in an overwhelming proportion.  I believe that'in spite of the fact  that a considerable vote has been  cast today for the Bowser candidates,we shall give this province  such a clean  and  efficient "and  progressive administration that  we shall secure their support at  the next appeal to the people."  '"It is no sinecure that we are  about to succeed to. - It will require strenuous work and unremitting attention to the affairs  of the province to pull it out of  the hole into which it has been  plunged-by/the misgovernment  of years, and in "that work we  need the aid and loyal backing  of every citizen. I am satisfied  that there is not a manor woman  in British Columbia today who  does not; desire its moral and  material advancement. Many of  them have hot seen eye to eye  with us, but I am convinced that  the Liberal government which is  soort to step into power in this  province will be so imbued with  a spirit of, honesty and will be  so efficient that there is not one  of either sex, and both will be  our constituents when we appeal  to the people next, but will have  no hesitation in retaining us-in  power.   -  "I pledge������������������ my every exertion  to the best in terests of the people.  I can pledge them, too, that every  man whom I shall ask to join  my cabinet will be animated by  the same ambition. - The Liberal  government-will give the people  the good government they so  much want.' I. believe that in  what we do we will have the  p.eople solidly with us.

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.  c���������)  .50  .25  1.00  .50  .25  VAIN TALKS OF PEACE.  The neutrals and the pro-Germans are very much disturbed  over the wickedness of the Entente Allies in continuing the  war. Germany, according to  them, is anxious to conclude  peace and it is only the cussed-  ness of the Allies which is responsible for further bloodshed.  But these good people fail to  recognize the fact that Germany's terms of peace carry with  them the recognition of her right  to violate treaties, to keep up a  murdershop in the centre of  Europe, to retain territory she  has robbed, in short, to force  her opponents to conclude peace  on unrighteous terms.  But in spite of enormous sacrifices made ancl yet demanded the  Entente Allies' sense of righteousness is of a different kind.  This war is now a war against  war and will not be concluded  willingly until compensation to  Belgium and Serbia be guaranteed and a lasting peace to the  world assured.

It is one thing to grow a crop  to perfection, and another to  prepare it.for exhibition. Too  often the exhibitis show excellent.^quality, but are marked  down on 'account of lack of careful preparation or arrangement.  It stands to reason that if they  are not prepared in a careful way  the good points are obscured.  The best jdea to work to is to  'put up your product in the best  condition' to market.    Do^not go  for extra large specimens, they  portant points, choose specimens  that are clean, well formed, free  from blemish or disease. Maturity is another important feature.  With such things .as potatoes,  carrots and turnips, they should  be washed carefully and only the  most'perfect and uniform ones  chosen. In general, put up your  exhibit-in a way that if. you saw  it at a store you would not object  to buying it.  The careful preparation of Exhibits has much to do with the  way they are placed. The exhibitor should endeavor to select  and prepare his exhibits so that  their qualities are shown to the  best advantage.
