The latter forces yesterday inflicted, so the Russians  claim,  rather severe defeat on the invaders.

The fighting was almost entirely  hand to hand and of a very  severe character, very heavy  losses were inflicted on the Turks  and three of their guns, three  trench mortars, three hundred  rifles, five hundred bombs and a  large quantity of small arms and  ammunition were captured."

In aid of the Canadian Red  Cross Society and St. John Ambulance Association the ladies of  the valley had, among other  things, arranged for a lawn party  on Mrs. E. C. Clayton's grounds  last Saturday afternoon.  The occasion did not bring ou1  as many people from the distanl  parts of the valley as usual,  probably on account of the heat  and dust and also because the  gathering of the second crop of  hay was then in full swing. But  those who lived in the lower pari  of the valley, on the townsite anc  at the cannery turned out in  force and made the occasion a  great success. Several devices  were used to entertain the crowd  and to relieve it of the money ii  had brought along to spend.  Mr. Gallienne's Aunt Sally's  Nigger babies were the most  profitable attraction, and continually held the youth who vied with  one another in trying to hit them  by the throwing of balls. This  game netted $43.15.  Next came the refreshment  booths where the ladies served  coffee, sandwiches, cakes, etc.,  to the many who without being  hungry yet kept the ladies busy  dispensing the eatables.  Mr. Garnet Gibson, dressed up  like a typical farmer, with long  chin whiskers and a still longer  coat, kept himself busy wheeling  a wheelbarrow filled with all sorts  larkness dispersed them to their  respective homes.  The young ladies are still after  the dollars and cents. Subscription lists are in circulation and  in addition, everybody is importuned to buy tags.

After haying1 .made a  trip a  "considerable distance up the Bella Coola valley we are more than'  ever impressed with its possibilities and prospects for the future.  Nature-has endowed it with/some  of its richest gifts berth in resources and   surroundings.   Its  advantages are many and its few,  drawbacks can and will be overcome by the energy and enterprise of its settlers.    Hardship  is one of the ��������� requirements. to  bring out the best qualities in individuals as well as people. Few  of those who'enter the smiling  valley at this1 time,  realize the  concentrated towards- the development of farming.' Many of  these efforts cannot be prosecuted effectively without co-operation. A land clearing outfit  should be procured. We believe  that some of our men, who have  invested so .largely in outside  securities could find profitable  investment in the operation of  up-to-date equipments for the  clearing of land.  Too much stress cannot belaid  on the importance of improving  the dairy herd by breeding and  feeding.  ,   The use of the silo .should be  more general.    We were glad to  see" that four of our farmers have  had   such   erected.     And that  brings us to the matter of the  great increase in the quantity of  fodder that can be raised to the  acre by the cultivation of ensilage corn.    The value of the fields  can  be multiplied manifold by  this the most modern' of crops.  It is necessary  for the proper  utilization of this crop that it be  cut before being stored  in  the  silo, and this process^requires an  expensive cutter and engine. To  overcome   this   difficulty   let  a  L  number of farmers unite in.the  buying of- them: ' They are probably as much needed as��������� threshing machine and engine, and we  see that an  enterprising mem-  berof the community has already  seen his way clear to_become the  sole owner .of such.    The same  engine that operates the threshing machine could also serve as  the motive power for the ensilage cutter.  In the matter .of transportation  of the produce, the day is not  far distant when, on good roads,  the motor truck  will  take the  GIL LETT'S LYE  EATS DIRT"  of the most important issues before the people.  The question" has become very  insistent during the last year.  The war with its grave economic  problems   has1   been   the   most  endorsed  by tHe electors of Alberta, July 21, 1915.  The Vancouver "World" has  come out in favor of the abolition of the liquor traffic, while  the rest of the daily press seems  to take a neutral'stand.  The prospects of British Columbia swinging into line with the  other progressive provinces,  states and nations who have banished the destructive traffic, are  of the best; and Bella Coola with  its large- number of temperance  people will be nearly unanimous  in support of prohibition.  o     o ^ o     o     o  The Fair at Prince Rupert.  The readers' of the Courier  must bear in mind that on the  22, 23 and 24 of this month, the  Northern British Columbia Fair  will be held at Prince Rupert.  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co.

Large "meetings have  been held in the centres of population  within  the province for  the purpose of ascertaining the  popular sentiment, with the result that a delegation was formed  which called on the premier, requesting that the liquor traffic  be ��������� prohibited  daring  the  war;  and that legislation to that effect  be not repealed without a referendum.    The premier promised  to-lay the request before the  Executive Council of the government, and give an answer before  the meeting of the prohibition  convention to be held at Vancouver, August 25.     r     '  - The' premier true to his promise  sent the government's reply to  the secretary of the delegation,  with the information that "it has  been decided to submit the whole  question  to a plebiscite of, the  electorate.   The date of the'tak-  many privations the settlers en  dured; and we believe these pri-lpjace of   the   railroad   for the!in������ of the Plebiscite will"beln-  vaHnnfl ���������w ii"���������** f������ o���������������i, ������ shorter.haul; and if the railroad  is not for us, we can in.the.near-  future haul   our   produce   over  good roads to the wharf as cheap  as by- rail.    Let, therefore, the  farmers and  business men get  together and plan and work for  their common good   along   the  lines indicated, "and their efforts  will be attended with gratifying  results.  yations now overcome to such a  great extent have moulded a race  of settlers that will bring Bella  Coola valley to the front ranks  in agricultural achievements in  the province.      The   soil   once  cleared is very productive; for  crop production  the climate is  unsurpassed,   the frequency of  showers, the warmth and sunshine are unfailing features of  .   the growing season and therefore failure of crop is unknown  in the valley. \  Nature has: not forgotten to  embellish these her material gifts  by giving Bella Coola some of  the grandest scenery found anywhere. Its towering and jagged  mountains with their perpetual  snow -and glaciers, its rapid  streams and high waterfalls combine to fill the onlooker with  awe and admiration.  The greater part of the valley  is pierced by a good wagon road,  bordered by the neat and attractive homes of its people. The  developments;in other respects  may not seem to have been as  great as might be expected; but  we venture to ������tate that we have  seen many settlements in localities nearer tb markets which  have not as good results to their  credits as Bella Coola^-  But we note with satisfaction  that the area of the clearings is  increasing far) more rapidly of  late than in former years, and in  this connection let the fact be  "noted that the farmers in the  vicinity of Firvale, who are situated from 25 to 30 miles up the  valley, have the largest clearings  of any.  The   efforts   of   the   settlers  should now be more and morel  Prohibition in British  Columbia.   ,  For the remainder of the year  or until an election is held, the  prohibition of the liquor traffic  nounced as soon as it. has been  decided what" shall form the  basis of the referendum."  The prohibition convention referred to met at Vancouver, August 25-26. It was so largely  attended that the hall assigned  for the convention was found too  small to accommodate the attending delegates, who came from  all parts of the provinces  The convention passed a resolution requesting the government to submit to the electorate  before the last day of the year a  within the province wilr be one'bill similar to ''The Liquor Act"  whole district that a keen interest be taken in it so^that it may  bring to the attentionof the outside world the resources of this  part of the province.     By the  completion of 'the Grand Trunk  Pacific'Railway, the Fair will be  attended  by people from communities not reached before.   It  will therefore^be possible for it  to do more good now  than in  previous years; and the Association having the Fair in charge is  financially in  good   position  to  take advantage of every opportunity for the advertising of the  district.     But'  the Association  needs the co-operation of all the  communities tributary to Prince  Rupert.  Bella Coola will find it to its  interest to patronize the Fair in  a liberal manner. Any business  occupying an out of the way  place needs advertise more extensively than one more advantageously situated. And Bella  Coola being at the head of a long  inlet is less frequented than  places on the regular routes of  communication. It therefore behooves this settlement to make  strong efforts to get its produce  represented and we know from  observation that it need not be  diffident in bringing forward  samples of the bumper crop har-  'vested this season.

They know that for every day  Lhe war is going on, they are becoming weaker in men, in money  and other resources.    The manufacturers of Germany are protesting because of the great drain  in men.     The bankers together  with the chancellor, Von Beth-  mann-Hollweg, are warning the  government that they are eon-  fronted   with   bankruptcy,   and  the  chancellor  is said  to have  threatened   to   resign   if   peace  proposals acceptable to the Allies  were not made.    The difficulties  of importing raw material needed  in the manufacture of munitions  of war are increasing.   So that in  spite of seeming victories the  Germanic allies have passed the  climax   and   are   now   steadily  j treading   the   downward   road.  The Allies, on the other hand,  are just as steadily improving  their conditions.    Money is plentiful, the fighting forces are in-  creasingin numberand efficiency,  war munitions   are   multiplied,  and last but not least, the British are at last realizing the seriousness of the struggle and the  necessity  for strenuous efforts  on  every hand,  and  are rising  nobly to the occasion.    The Germans, knowing that their star is  declining, are now making tentative proposals for peace.    The  terrible onslaught made on the  Russians is in reality an effort to  make Russia accept the liberal  offers  Germany  have   made  to  her.    It is said that Russia has  been   offered   Galicia   and   the  opening of the  Dardanelles to  her, but declined.    Germany has  not as yet realized to the full the  temper of the Allies.    The wanton  plunging of the world into  this the greatest of catastrophes  known cannot be settled by the  ceding of territory; but only by  disarmament and restitution as  far as can  be made to Belgium  for the causeless massacre and  ruin wrought upon her.  It seems that the .longer the  war is carried on the more numerous the enemies of Germany  ! become, it is not extravagant to  ! believe that before another year  j is gone all the civilized countries  | of the world will be arrayed  | against this outlaw among  I nations.

Bella Coola   farmers are independent,  they are strangers to hard times.  TTHE 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.  DELLA COOLA and the surrounding  *-^ country possesses wonderful wealth  in timber, as yet almost entirely undeveloped, and perhaps at no other point  on the Northern Coast is there the same  opportunity for a remunerative investment as in a saw mill at Bella Coola.  ] r_=_ roj cud e  The  Best Known  and   Popular  Lubricant for  Motor Boats  Its use assures freedom from Carbon deposit  on valves, spark plugs, or in cylinders  IMPERIAL OIL CO.

They were so much impressed by  the wealth to.be gained on those  distant shores, that they forthwith rolled their blankets  and  did not allow Mr. Cassidy to leave  their sight until he had shown  them this land .flowing with-milk  and honey.  Their destination was Price  Island, near Milbank Sound.
