 HI  SPEND YOUR SUMMER VACA-  TION IN BELLA COOLA. EXCELLENT HUNTING AND FISHING.  ^4j^,  WEATHER   REPORT  Comynled  by Mr. C. H. Urseth, of the  Hagensborg Observatory.  Temperature for the month of August,  maximum, 70,  minimum, 49.  Rainfall for same period, 1.77.  VOL. 2���������NO. 2  BELLA COOLA, B. C, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27,  19)3.  $1.00 a Year  Vancouver Business Men  Visit Anaham Lake  Mess*rs Martin J. Ravey and  \Villiam Brown, prominent Vancouver business men, have just  returned from a trip to the Anaham Lake country, a part of Bella Goola's hinterland that is  rapidly gaining well deserved  notoriety as a first-class stock  country; it being in the latter  connection that these gentlemen  are interested."  Both parties express themselves as-'highly pleased with the  country, and brought out with  them samples of "red-top" 3 1-2  feet high, besides other excellent  feed-grasses of various varieties.  The temperature in the daytime at Anaham was . found to  range around 90 degrees in the  sun.  Mr. Ravey, who has had considerable experience as a pioneer,  having spent twelve years in Alaska, previous to which he travelled through Manitoba and the  North-West, says: "Never have  1 seen game more plentiful. On  Salmon River the water seemed  black with wild geese, and ducks  of all descriptions, and within  gun-shot of our camp fire we secured good bags of grouse, prairie chickens and'ducks. The  Lakes and Rivers are teeming  with trout of various kinds, it  requiring only a few minutes to  obtain all you need for a meal.  We sighted two bears on the trip,  one exceptionally large one being  in Bella Coola Valley.  The Indians in the Anaham  country are making a pronounced  success of cattle raising. One  man had justcut 120 tons of wild  hay, which has proven to be first  class cattle feed, and never have  I seen animals in better shape  than were those belonging to  these Indians.  On the trip we met Mr. W.  Denham Verschoyle, promoter of  the Pacific & Hudson Bay Railway Company, who had been inspecting some valuable iron properties in which he is interested.  Mr. Verschoyle seemed very optimistic regarding the success of  his venture. This will mean  much to this country, which only  requires transportation facilites  in order to provide homes for  hundreds of settlers."  Speaking of Bella Coola Valley,  Mr. Ravey says:   "This is indeed  The Stampede to  Tahtsa River  Easy Access by Way of Bella Coola  ������Telkwa, B.C., Sept. 25.

It is  a substantial structure and meets  the requirements in every way  excepting the steepness of the  approach at the east end.  The fear that the oit-repeated  error might be made, was uttered some considerable time ago  in a letter to the Courier from a  person who is frequently engaged  in freighting, and it is disappointing to find that the warning has  been so utterly disregarded.  Two large scow loads of lumber have arrived. Presumably  this lumber is to be used in the  construction of the proposed new  bridge over the Bella Coola River,  on which work is to commence  shortly.   H. J.

Was this all  bluff on the part of Messrs Owens  and McMullen ? It certainly looks  like it.  Perhaps we judge hastily. Perhaps the matter was submitted  to our Mr. William Manson, and  if so, we do not wonder greatly  at it taking four years for the  need of a lock-up at this place to  be appreciated by him. What  does he know about Bella Coola,  except what he is told by perhaps two persons, who themselves are too bigoted to. even  become well informed.  We have had one visit from the  district government agent, and  that on the occasion of our annual   Empire   day   celebration.  Probably   on   this   occasion   he  gained all the knowledge he.required in order to properly understand local conditions; atany-  rate he spent at least ten minutes at a street corner in company  with two or three local residents,  the remainder of the time, being  along -with Mr. Manson,  under  the sheltering wing of the local  road superintendent, who, bye-  the-way, if hot then, has .since  been   accepted   by   the   Public  Works Department as an expert  on the building of lock-ups.  Broughton and Wheeler, Mr  Owens took no chances, and at  once placed an extra guard of  special constables over the prisoners, who were incarcerated, in  a bedroom over the local bank.  Still afraid that the prisoners  might slip through his fingers,  before the arrival of the Princess  Beatrice on Friday, Mr. Owens  decided to take the men with him-  to Bella Bella on Thursday jn a  launch, when by transhipping to  the Camosun for Prince Rupert  and again transhipping they  could eventually be safely landed  at New'Westminster.  Who. is to Blame  The story of how tenders were  called for the building of a'lock-  up and constable's quarters at  Bella Coola as, long ago as last  May, and how. the Public Works  Engineer sent a certain firm's  tender to the local road superintendent for him to report upon.  How���������as it so happened���������this  latter official reported adversely,  and finally how this work is now  being held as a winter's-job for  .certain persons on the inside, is  now too well known to need repetition.     Enough for us to say  that apart from a little work  done towards "clearing the proposed site, Bella Coola is as far  from having a lock-up as it ever  was.  Who is to blame?   Maybe Mr.  McMullen the   district government agent.   Let us see. - Some  four years ago,'shortly after.Mr.  McMullen received his. appointment to his present position-, he  was visited at Prince Rupert by  a certain influential local resident,  who put the matter of a lock-up  before him so clearly that he became enthused; and insisted on  taking the party to the office of  the chief constable, Mr. Owens,  before whom   the  matter was  again thoroughly discussed, with  the result that the government  agent and  the chief   constable  professed to clearly see the need  Of the lock-up and even expressed  some suprise that no such place  existed at Bella Coola.  One of these gentlemen, however, expressed his opinion that  nothing could be done at that  time, as a special vote of money  would have to be obtained for  the purpose; but was quickly set  to rights by the other, who assured his hearers that money for  the building of lock-ups, where  required, was always available.  Evidently one of these important  officials did not know this, or  was the other in error in making  the correction? Surely either of  these gentlemen might be expected to know, but one of them  certainly did not.  .Talking about visits, the Courier has already recorded.the recent hurried visit of Mr. Owens  in connection with the Kimsquit  murder case.  This latest visit and its effect,  apart from its connection with  such a horrible affair, was in itself distinctly ludicrous.  . It is easy to imagine Mr.,0wens  in his office at Prince Rupert-  responsible for the lives and property of the inhabitants of his  district���������hearing the news of one  of the darkest, deeds that' has  ever stained the history of this  country since it became civilized,  and-learning that at Bella Coola  were being held two men, the  alleged perpetrators of this terrible crime.    It is'not difficult to  picture Mr. Owens, cognizant of  thewfact that, owing to" his negligence of���������or at anyrate indifference to^-rhis duties, there existed  noplace at Bella Coola suitable  for the accommodation of these  men, and afraid that in case the  men escaped from  custody, he  would be open to severe censure,  which he certainly would have  been, it is easy to imagine him,  conscience stricken, making all  haste for Bella Coola;  Landing here   in   an   excited  We might say that had the proposed lock-up been completed,  Mr. Owens would have had no  need to become excited, as it  would have been just as impossible for the prisoners to escape  as for him to reach the lock-up  without a boat, as the day after  his arrival the proposed site was  covered by several feet of water.  -This site was chosen by the acknowledged expert of the Public  Works department ��������� the local  road superintendent���������and.is evidently satisfactory to Mr. Owens;  and as the latter did not take the  trouble to go and inspect the  place for himself it is obvious  that he -also acknowledges, the  infallibility of the road superintendent in all matters pertaining  to lock-ups. \  ��������� - " >  In regard to the choosing' of  the proposed site for the lock-up,  it must not be forgotten that the  "final choice was only made with  the sanction of Mr. Baxter, Inspector of Public Works for this  district, who having visited this  valley perhaps three times in his  life, must necessarily .have 'accurate knowledge of local conditions at all times of the year.  Or did he also accept'the assurance of the local expert?

"THE   BEST   YET"  Made in British Columbia  We are surprised at a' newspaper whi civ professes to believe  ,that the creation of a Canadian  navy wOuld lead to separation  from the British Empire publishing the following, dispatch from  Sydney, Australia: -������  Speaking at a banquet given  by the Chamber of Commerce to  the British Padiamerrtary party,  Admiral Sir George King-Hall of  the British navy, who will return shortly to England said:  "It is a great fallacy to suppose  that the initiation of a.'Royal  Australian  Navy must weaken  and in time dissolve the connection between Great Britain and  one of her most vigorous sons.  Not so, it will have the reverse  effect if our Empire rulers have  only ordinary wisdom and common sense. Where danger is,  there will be found the Royal  Australian Navy flying the same  white ensign-that was flown by  Nelson at Trafalgar."  THE OLD BATTLE.  Mr. Hawkes states the situation precisely when he says the  old battle of autonomy against  centralized government is being  fought over again. Canadians  who thought that question had  been settled forever overated the  patriotism of many of their fellow-countrymen. Four years  ago they could not have dreamed  that the leaders of a great party,  then proclaiming the doctrine of  Canadian self-reliance in matters  of naval defence, would today be  seeking to drive Canada into the  role of tribute-payer, and decrying Canadian manhood and'Can-  adian nationhood. ��������� Brockville  Recorder.
