Miss Viva Bingtsen, who has  been the nurse for the past year  at the hospital, left for Victoria"  by the last steamer where she  will accept a position with the  Royal Jubilee Hospital in the  capital city.  Mrs. J. H. Hober of Firvale,  arrived back this week after a  three months stay in the States.  -- ���������  Frank-, Johnson, in company  with J. .H. Shafer, made a trip  into the new mining country of  Eutsuck Lake, has returned to  town. He speaks very highly of  that section from a mining point  of view. This country is practically unexplored territory with  no trails to speak of, which makes  prospecting difficult in those regions. Mr. Johnson bears out  the statement made by others  that the district is rich in minerals. ' -  Miss Ruth Nordschow was  down from Hagensborg during  the week. After spending three  months in the'hospital here dur-  Winch &Co. of Vancouver, called  at this port last week. The Imr  palla has had a thorough overhauling since leaving here and  looked spick and span, in fact it  was difficult to recognize her as  the same boat. The launch was  bought by the Messrs, Winch  company for the use of their  travelling superintendent, Mr.  Doyle, between the different ���������  canneries owned by the firm in  the north.  We may. be excused for printing the following extract from a '  soldier reader at the front:   .  "I am writing to .thank you  for.the Bella Coola Courier,' which ���������;  has been forwarded so faithfully  for three eventful years and has  found me both in the���������Mediterra-  nean and in France. Its advent,  whether in ihe mud or the clay,  fair weather or otherwise, has  been very welcome; and a fond  link with the dear,old province  of British Columbia."  TKe S."S. Tees of the C. P..R..  r|0N?T forget to bring in your Subscription  to the Courier���������The more support you  give us, the better paper we will give you.  ing the first part of the year,  Miss Nordschow is now enjoying the best of health.  The gathering in of root crops  is now- pretty general throughout the valley and the yield is  considerably abov������ what it was  last year, which was considered  a very good one, particularly the  potatoes, which show a marked  improvement both as to quantity  and quality. Also the fruit is of  a better color, the reason of this  is the dry, warm weather during  the past six week's, which has  improved the fruit in general.  The salmon catches during the  past week have been fully up to  expectation. There has been a  falling off in the cheaper fish,  but the run of Cohoe has improved, if any over last week. From  Kimsquit comes the report that  the canneries there are about  closing down fbr the season as  all tins arranged for are filled,  and it is too late in the season to  obtain any more cans. At Namu  there has been an over supply of  fish and- the latest is .they.will  also have to close on. account of  a shortage in tins. No correct  figures as to the total pack is to  hand, but the Bella Coola cannery is now running close to the  forty thousand cases mark.  The launch Impalla,- formerly  owned by William Sutherland  and now the property of R. V.  service,came up with supplies  for the Talleo Fisheries cannery'  and after discharging proceeded  to Kimsquit and Bella Bella to  load salmon for the south. Considerable of the canned fish was  also taken aboard at "the Bella  Coola cannery for shipment to  Vancouver.  Courier readers will be pleased  to learn that John Simister a  former resident of Bella Coola,  is still in the land of the living.  According to the Cariboo Observer of Quesnel, we learn that  Mr. Simister has left that place  and is now superintendent of the  cattle ranch of Little & Udy at  Nazco, in the Cariboo- district.  Mr. W. H. Little also claimed  Bella Coola his home town before taking up his abode in the  Interior to engage in cattle raising extensively. ____.      ������������������  ��������� Attention is directed to the extensive program of the Bella  Coola Farmers' Institute and  Fair Association in this copy; It  is earnestly hoped that .all will  take an interest in placing1 on  exhibit as.many of the products  of the, valley as possible and  otherwise'aid.in; making this'Fall  Exhibition a success.  Ed. White, with; his family,  arrived back in town after spending the summer at N.ootum Bay,  where Mr. White was engaged  in logging.  Mrs. R. Fleming left on the  last boat for Vancouver.  ;������&v BELLA COOLA COURIER

What Might Have Been.
"Then none were for si party,
"Then-all were for the state."
If thatcould be brought about
how happy we all would be.   A
society has been formed in England under the name of "The
Society for Upholding Political
.   Honor" and its objects are as
follows: (1) To attack abuses of
government by party,-and especially the misuse'of party funds.
(2) To ensure that publicity shall
ba given to the source, amount,
and disposal of all monies devoted to party objects.'  (3) To insist that honors shall be bestowed only as a reward of ser.yices
to the state,,, an'cf in no case for
moneylary considerations.     (4)
To support as candidates for parliament men who are free from
party ties.    (5) To free the press
from party allegiance. The whole
undertaking is  certainly some
job.     What a happy time we
.- should have had in British Columbia if an organization of  this
kind had been started hereabout
twenty years ago.   Some of the
objects of this organization are
quite sound.   The hidden party
chest is a scandal anyway and
should have been done away with
years ago.   Some pe :>ple seem to
think that there is going to be a
new Empire created after this
war.   In the constitution of the
new Empire when it is reconstructed there must be a clause
forbidding the bartering of public'honors.   More knights have
been created in Canada since the
war started than  during the
whole fifty years of confederation, and if  the bestowing of
honors on men is to continue at
the rate.of the last three years
there will be more knights than
common citizens.

The county court of Vancouver
county, of which Bella Coola
happens to be a part,, though not
by choice, has lost two of its
judges. Mr. Justice Schultz by
death and the senior member,
Judge W. Wi B. Mclnnis, by.'retirement to.enter politics in the
Comox-Alberni district, where
he has received nomination in
the Liberal interest for the Dominion House. This leaves the
court with only one-judge who,
it is reported, is quite able to
hand all the business coming before this tribunal.
The Express of the Future.
A great deal of thinking has
been going on during the past
three years, particularly as to
the transportation business of
the future. The tunnelling of
the Straits of Dover is one thing,
but there are others. The latest
in tunnels is one from Wigtownshire, in Scotland, with the Irish
coast, but this may not be seriously entertained for the present, or at least not so longas the
Irish question remains unsettled.
In this connection it may be said
that if the present Irish generation should agree to a settlement,
there may be one or two Irishmen in the next that would stir
up matters a little. This would
leave the tunnel out of the question. Some years ago the tunnel to France was a topic, but
that was as far as it ever went.
Now it is said that nearly half
of the members of the British
House ,of Commons are in favor
of the scheme. Had the French
tunnel been in existence in 1914,
the task of supplying the British
forces in France .would have
been an easy matter and the
perils from the-=Hun submarines
would riot have affected either
the movement of the troops or
supplies. That this tunnel will
be built is no dream. The result
will be,that the Orient express
will leave Charing Cross and run
through to Petrograd, thence
across to Vladivostock, then under the Bering Straits, thence
through Dawson and on to Fori
George. It may run through to
Constantinople, thence branching via Asia Minor to Palestine
and on to Egypt, linking up, with
Cecil Rhodes railway scheme,
Cairo to Cape, or via Bagdad to
India. Any of the lines of railway are quite possible as well as
the tunnelling of the English
Channel and the Bering Straits.

Our Duty as Electors.
Slavery to party is one of the
reasons why the politics of the
country have become degraded,
and there are happily many indications of better things in the
near future. The war is, perhaps more than anything else,
bringing us to a realization of
the truth' that our blind partyism
enables a few unscrupulous and

greedy men to grasp the reins of
power and control parliaments.
Naturally this sort of govern-
ment has resulted in a carnival
of extravagance and corruption
that is disgraceful beyond description. The electors have
only themselves to blame; they
always get just the government
they vote for. But we are awakening to the fact that the exercise of the franchise is a sacred
r
duty, and that every elector is
responsible forthe.wayin which
he discharges that duty. Those
who steadfastly refrain from
voting, and those who vote without giving due consideration to
the questions before the ��� country, are equally/to blame forjun^
desirable conditions. Ever since
the supreme sacrifice on Calvary
was made to make men free, suffering humanity has, continued
to struggle for the fulfilment of
that freedom. So long as we fail
in our duty to strive for that fulfilment we cannot hope to escape
from political evils.. The responsibility rests on every voter,
and.those who have the best opportunities to know of the conditions must bear the greatest'
responsibility. '

Showing Up Germany.
It is beginning to apper that
Germany committed a serious
mistake by provoking the United
States to enter the war, not only
in a military sense but also from
the view point of moral sentiment. Since the American republic has taken up the sword
her most damaging work has
been done in the diplomatic exposures. Mr. Gerard, the former ambassador of the United
States to Germany, gave the
world some inside information
which revealed the Teuton at his
worst in international relations
and since then Washington has
disclosed the duplicity of the
German consul in Buenos Aires.
To cap the climax Washington
now produces proof that Geirn-
any was using the Swedish consul in Mexico as a tool in'another
matter of vital importance to the
Allies. This information and
the proof thereof have been long
in possession of the American
government, which has a faculty
of getting hold of things of this
sort which must- be the envy of
the much- vaunted German spy
system. It will be recalled that
the United States had the noto-
riousZimmermann letter up its
sleeve for months before President Wilson confounded Germany with it.

Ian Hay's book is an amusing  defence of'England. "As a Scotsman," he begins, "the English  people have my profound sympathy." The Englishman is' described as the whipping-boy of  the British Empire.  1 In the war of today, for instance, whenever anything particularly unpleasant or unpopular  has to be done���������such as holding  up neutral mails; or establishing  a blacklist of neutral firms dealing with theenemy���������upon whom  rests the odium? Upon England;  never upon France, and only occasionally upon Great Britain.  The people and press interested  thunder at "England's arrogance.", ,  Similarly the German formula  is "Gott strafe England! "Never  "Britain," as a Scotsman once  very rightly complained to me,  adds Ian Hay in parenthesis:  On the other hand, when there  is any credit going round, continues the first chapter of "The  Oppressed Englishman"��������� say  for the capture of an hitherto  impregnable ridge on the West-  Ames Holden McCready Ltd.

Well, it depends.  If the Canadians took the ridge,  Canada gets the credit; and the  world's press (including that of  England) pays due tribute to the  invincible valor of, the men from  the Dominions. Or if a Scottish  or an Irish regiment took the  ridge, the official report from  general headquarters makes appreciable reference to the fact.  But how often do we see the  phrase: "The ridge was stormed  under heavy fire by an English  regiment?" Practically never,  Ian Hay answers. A victory  gained by English boys from  or Yorkshire appears as a British victory, pure and simple.  Some of the chapters of "The  Oppressed English" are devoted  to a discussion of the relationship of England to the Irish situation.   The author concludes:  But I have said enough to demonstrate to unbiased' observers  the present deplorable status of  that unfortunate country, England/ Today her chief offices of  State are occupied by Scotsmen  of the most ruthless type; Wales  supplies her with prime ministers; whilelreland appropriates  all her spare cash and calls her  a bloodsucker. When the war is  over, and the world has leisure  to devote itself to certain long-  postponed domestic reforms, it  is most devoutly to be hoped  that the case of that unhappy  but not undeserving people, the  English, may be taken in hand,  and that they be, granted some  measure, however slight, of  political freedom. After that we  must do something for Poland.

Bella Coola farmers "are independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  View of a ranch in Bella Coola Valley.  r*THE REASONS for this enviable condi-  f 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 excelT  lent 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.  <=D  OELLA 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.

HON. MARTIN   BURRELL, MINISTER.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  Miss Viva Bingtsen, who has  been the nurse for the past year  at the hospital, left for Victoria  by the last steamer where she  will accept a position with the  Royal Jubilee Hospital in the  capital city.  Mrs. J.H. Hober of Firvale,  arrived back this week after a  three months stay in the States.  Frank Johnson, in company  with J. H. Shafer, made a trip  into the new mining country of  Eutsuck Lake, has returned to  town. He speaks very highly of  that section from a mining point  of view. This country is practically unexplored territory with  no trails to speak of, which makes  prospecting difficult in those regions. Mr. Johnson bears out  the statement made by others  that the district is rich in minerals.        ���������-.' " - ' ���������'   '  Miss Ruth Nordschow was  down from Hagensborg during  the week. After spending three  months in thVndspital here dur-  Winch &Co. of Vancouver, called  at this port last week. The Irrir  palla has had a thorough overhauling since leaving here and  looked spick and span, in fact it  was difficult to recognize her as  the same boat. The launch was  bought by the Messrs. Winch  company for the use of their  travelling superintendent, Mr.  Doyle, between the different  canneries owned by the firm in  the north.  We may be excused for printing the following extract from a  soldier reader at the front:  "I am writing to- thank you  for the Bella Coola Courier, which  has been forwarded so faithfully  for three eventful years and has  found me both in the Mediterranean and in France. Its advent;  whether in the mud or the clay,  fair weather or otherwise,,has  been very welcome; and a fond  link with the dear old province  of British Columbia."  1tte%;S. Tees of ;the C. P.. R:.  T^ON'T forget to bring in your Subscription  to the Courier���������-The more support you  give us, the better paper we will give you.  ing the first part of the year,  Miss Nordschow is now enjoying the best of health.  The gathering in of root crops  is now pretty general throughout the valley and the yield is  considerably above what it was  last year, which was considered  a very good one, particularly the  potatoes, which show a marked  improvement both as to quantity  and quality. Also the fruit is of  a better color, the reason of this  is the dry, warm weather during  the past six weeks, which has  improved the fruit in general.  The salmon catches during the  past week have been fully up to  expectation. There has been a  falling off in the cheaper fish,  but the run of Cohoe has improved if any over last week. From  Kimsquit comes the report that  the canneries there are about  closing down for the season as  all tins arranged for are filled,  and it is too late in the season to  obtain any more cans. At Namu  there has been an over supply of  fish and the latest is they will  also have to close on account of  a shortage in tins. No correct  figures as to the total pack is to  hand, but the Bella Coola cannery is now running close to the  forty thousand cases mark.  The launch lmpalla, formerly  owned by William Sutherland  and now the property of R. V.  service came up with supplies  for the Talleo Fisheries cannery'  and after discharging proceeded  to Kimsquit and Bella Bella to  load salmon for the south. Considerable of the canned fish was  also taken aboard at "the Bella  Coola cannery for shipment to  Vancouver.  Courier readers will be pleased  to learn that John Simister a  former resident of Bella Coola,  is still in the land of the living.  According to the Cariboo Observer of Quesnel, we learn that  Mr. Simister has left that place  and is now superintendent of the  cattle ranch of Little & Udy at  Nazco, in the Cariboo- district.  Mr. W. H. Little also claimed  Bella Coola his home town before taking up his abode in the  Interior to engage in cattle raising extensively.  Attention is directed to the ex-  tensive program of the Bella  Coola Farmers' Institute and  Fair Association in this copy. It  is earnestly hoped that all will  take an interest in placing on  exhibit as many of the products  of the valley as possible and  otherwise aid in making this Fall  Exhibition a success.  Ed. White, with his family,  arrived back in town after spending the summer at Nootum Bay,  where Mr. White was engaged  in logging.   Mrs. R. Fleming left on the  last boat for Vancouver.  ;  ���������������  .v.-- i*  0,  se  ns  k  8  .r  it  is  S  '^  ���������:���������  ** 7" '-,  IF YOU WANT GOOD SPORT  'IS1T BELLA COOLA.

HON. MARTIN   BURRELL, MINISTER.  Jottings of Bella Coola and District  Miss Viva Bingtsen, who has  been the nurse for the past year  at the hospital, left for Victoria  by the last steamer where she  will accept a position with the  Royal Jubilee Hospital in the  capital city.  Mrs. J.H. Hober of Firvale,  arrived back this week after a  three months stay in the States.  Frank Johnson, in company  with J. H. Shafer, made a trip  into the new mining country of  Eutsuck Lake, has returned to  town. He speaks very highly of  that section from a mining point  of view. This country is practically unexplored territory with  no trails to speak of, which makes  prospecting difficult in those regions. Mr. Johnson bears out  the statement made by others  that the district is rich in minerals,        -y " ������������������ ' ���������'   '  Miss Ruth Nordschow was  down from Hagensborg during  the week. After spending three  months in the hospital here dur-  Winch &Co. of Vancouver, called  at this port last week. The Irrir  palla has had a thorough overhauling since leaving here and  looked spick and span, in fact it  was difficult to recognize her as  the same boat. The launch was  bought by the Messrs. Winch  company for the use of their  travelling superintendent, Mr.  Doyle, between the different  canneries owned by the firm in  the north.  We may be excused for printing the following extract from a  soldier reader at the front:  "I am writing to. thank you  for the Bella Coola Courier, which  has been forwarded so faithfully  for three eventful years and has  found me both in the Mediterranean and in France. Its advent,  whether in the mud or the clay,  fair weather or otherwise,,has  been very welcome; and a fond  link with the dear old province  of British Columbia."  ���������-_:he-&.-S; Tees of the C. P.-R..  D  ON'T forget to bring in your Subscription  to the Courier���������-The more support you  give us, the better paper we will give you.  ing the first part of the year,  Miss Nordschow is now enjoying the best of health.  The gathering in of root crops  is now pretty general throughout the valley and the yield is  considerably above what it was  last year, which was considered  a very good one, particularly the  potatoes, which show a marked  improvement both as to quantity  and quality. Also the fruit is of  a better color, the reason of this  is the dry, warm weather during  the past six weeks, which has  improved the fruit in general.  The salmon catches during the  past week have been fully up to  expectation. There has been a  falling off in the cheaper fish,  but the run of Cohoe has improved if any over last week. From  Kimsquit comes the report that  the canneries there are about  closing down for the season as  all tins arranged for are filled,  and it is too late in the season to  obtain any more cans. At Namu  there has been an over supply of  fish and the latest is they will  also have to close on account of  a shortage in tins. No correct  figures as to the total pack is to  hand, but the Bella Coola cannery is now running close to the  forty thousand cases mark.  The launch lmpalla, formerly  owned by William Sutherland  and now the property of R. V.  service came up with supplies  for the Talleo Fisheries cannery'  and after discharging proceeded  to Kimsquit and Bella Bella to  load salmon for the south. Considerable of the canned fish was  also taken aboard at "the Bella  Coola cannery for shipment to  Vancouver.  Courier readers will be pleased  to learn that John Simister a  former resident of Bella Coola,  is still in the land of the living.  According to the Cariboo Observer of Quesnel, we learn that  Mr. Simister has left that place  and is now superintendent of the  cattle ranch of Little & Udy at  Nazco, in the Cariboo- district.  Mr. W. H. Little also claimed  Bella Coola his home town before taking up his abode in the  Interior to engage in cattle raising extensively.  Attention is directed to the ex=-  tensive program of the Bella  Coola Farmers' Institute and  Fair Association in this copy. It  is earnestly hoped that all will  take an interest in placing on  exhibit as many of the products  of the valley as possible and  otherwise aid in making this Fall  Exhibition a success.  Ed. White, with his family,  arrived back in townafterspend-  ing the summer at Nootum Bay,  where Mr. White was engaged  in logging.   Mrs. R.

If that could be brought about  "how happy we all would be.   A  society has been formed in England under the name of "The  Society for.Upholding Political  Honor" and- its objects are as  .follows: (1) T,o attack abuses of  goverhment.by party, and especially the misuse of party funds.  (2) To ensure "that publicity shall  be given /to the source, amount,  and disposal of all monies devot-  ' ed to party.objects'/ ,(3) To insist that-hohors shall be bestow-  ' ed only.aa^reward,- pf se^ryices  to the statev'anjllin -no case for  moneytary considerations.     (4)  To support as candidates for parliament men who are free from  party ties.    (5) To free th e press  from party allegiance. The whole  undertaking is   certainly  some  job.     What a happy time we  should have had in British Columbia if an organization  of   this  kind had been started hereabout  twenty years ago.   Some of the  objects of this organization are  quite sound.   The hidden party  chest is# a scandal anyway and  should have been done away with  years ago.    Some pe3ple seem to  think that there is going to be a  new Empire created after this  war.    In the constitution of the  new Empfre when it is  reconstructed there must be a clause  forbidding the bartering of public honors.   More knights have  been created in Canada since the  war startedf than  during the  whole fifty years of confederation, and if   the bestowing of  honors on men is to continue at  the rate of the last three years  therje will be more knights than  common citizens.  o    o     o     o    o  Overmanned.  The county court of Vancouver  county, of which Bella Coola  happens to be a part, though not  by choice, has lost two of its  judges. Mr. Justice Schultz by  death and the' senior member,  Judge W. Wi- B. Mclnnis, by retirement to,enter politics in the  Comox-Alberni district, where  he has received nomination in  the Liberal interest for the Dominion House. This leaves the  court with only one judge who,  it is reported, is quite able to  hand all the business coming before this tribunal.  The Express of the Future.  A great deal of thinking has  been going on  during the past  three years, particularly as'to  the transportation   business of  the future.    The  tunnelling of  the Straits of Dover is one.thing,  but there are others.    The latest  in tunnels is one from Wigtownshire, in Scotland, with the Irish  coast, but this may not be seriously entertained for the present, or at least not so long as the  Irish question remains unsettled.  In this connection it may be said  that if the present Irish generation should agree to a settlement,  there may be one or two Irishmen in the next that would stir  up matters a little.    This would  leave the tunnel out of the question.    Some years ago ,the tunnel to France vyas a topic, but  that was as far as it ever went.  Now it is said that nearly half  of the members of the British  House of Commons are in favor  of the scheme.    Had the French  tunnel been in existence in 1914,  the task of supplying the British  forces   in   France   would   have  been  an  easy   matter and   the  perils from the Hun,submarines  .would not have affected either  the-movement of the troops or  supplies.    That this tunnel will  be built is no dream.   The result  will be.that the Orient express  will leave Charing Cross-and run  through   to   Petrograd,   thence  across- to Vladivostock, "then under" the Bering Straits,  thence  through Dawson and on to Fort  George.    It may run through'to  Constantinople, thence branching via Asia- Minor to Palestine  and on to Egypt, linking up>ith  Cecil' 'Rhodes ' railway scheme,  Cairo to Cape, or via Bagdad to  India.   Any of the lines of railway are quite possible as well as  the  tunnelling of'' the English  Channel and the Bering Straits.  o     o     o     o     o  Our Duty as Electors.  Slavery to party is one of the  reasons why the politics of the  country have become degraded,  and there are happily many indications of better things in the  near future. The war is, perhaps more than anything else,  bringing us to a realization of  the truth that our blind partyism  enables a few unscrupulous and  **-***"���������  liADE.

Naturally this  sort of government has resulted in a carnival  of extravagance and, corruption  that is disgraceful  beyond description.

Those  who   steadfastly   refrain "from  voting, and those who vote without giving due consideration to  the questions before the   country, are equally to blame for undesirable conditions.

A victory  gained by English boys from  or Yorkshire appears as a British victory, pure and simple.  Some of the chapters of "The  Oppressed English" are devoted  to a discussion of the relationship of England to the Irish situation.    The author concludes:  But I have said enough to demonstrate to unbiased observers  the present deplorable status of  that unfortunate country, England. Today her chief offices of  State are occupied by Scotsmen  of the most ruthless type; Wales  supplies her with prime ministers; while Ireland appropriates  all her spare cash and calls her  a bloodsucker.   When the war is  i'  over, and the world has leisure  to devote itself to certain long-  postponed domestic reforms, it  is most devoutly  to be hoped  that the case of that unhappy  but not undeserving people, the  English, may be taken in hand,  and that they be granted some  measure,    however    slight,^ of  political freedom..
