The premier, Hon. H. C. Brewster; Hon. Wm. Sloan, minister  of mines; Hon. Dr. J. H. King,  minister of public work; Hon. J.  Oliver, minister of agriculture;  and Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of lands, are at present touring northern and central British  Columbia in the interests of then-  respective departments to ascertain for themselves the conditions in the hitherto partly unknown portions of the province,  with an eye towards remedying  the present unsatisfactory conditions and also to obtain first  hand information on which the  government can base their plans  for future development. It is  in line with the policy of the  present administration that its  ministers should acquaint themselves, personally, with all matters coming under their respective departments. It is to be  hoped that the present tour,  which is the first that has been  undertaken since the new government took office, will be of  great benefit to the.north.  Indian agent I. Fougner, returned from Kitimat^ and the  other Indian villages' in his agency. He reports that all' the  braves under his charge are  financially well off and the condition among'them is generally  good. ' The reason for this is that  the Indians can obtain employment in the canneries during the  fishing season' and outside of  that they are engaged in hand-  logging or in the camps of the  different concerns operating on  the coast.  John Widsten, fisheries officer,  is at present looking over the  lakes and spawning grounds at  the head of the Bella Coola river/  It is the intention to have all the  present obstructions in the river  removed and the officials of the  fisheries department are looking  over same to determine the amount required for their removal.  There are log jams that absolutely block the passage o'f the  salmon to the spawning beds and  it is important that these obstructions be removed at unce;  ���������The Courier again reminds the  settlers of the valley to make an  extra effort to make a display of  vegetables and other farm pro-,  duce at the coming exhibition at  Prince Rupert, on the 19th, 20th  and 21st of this month.

It has developed during the  course of a discussion in the  senate that the last Canadian  loan of $100,000,000 in New York  netted the Dominion government  the sum of $96^250,000. This  means that therl country paid  $3,750,000 for flotation expenses,  surely a very high price'in an  . allied market. The bonds, we  are further told, will net the  buyers slightly over six per cent.  The whole loan, if repaid at the  end of two years, will have cost  the country $12,000,000 in interest and $3,750,000 in flotation  expenses���������a total of $15,750,000.  If, as asserted in the commons,  this loan was not negotiated to  pay interest,.among other things,  on loans'already in existence but  was negotiated to balance exchange, it will become obvious  that all the  people  are being  . taxed nearly $16,000,000 in two  years for the benefit of those individual Canadians doing busi-  nes in the United States.  o,   o     o    o,   o  Normally, exports should pay  for imports, but when a nation  buys more than it sells exchange  goes against it���������that is, unless  the debtor nation ships gold to  m ike up the difference. Canada  has no gold to ship to the United  States, so we resort to the expensive expedient of borrowing  money there in order that certain Canadian can pay their bills  there at par. This is good financing for the Canadian trader but  mighty poor business for the  Canadian people at large. Of  course, the natural correction of  exchange is the shipping of more  goods to cthe United States, but  we can't do that very well, because of our tariff wall, which is  maintained against us by our  own desire.  , o     o    o    o    o  : A report of a non-partisan  meetingof Alberta farmers, who  wired the premier strongly protesting against the action of the  board of grain supervisors prohibiting the export of wheat to  the United States. . The farmers  reminded the government that j  it had removed the duty on  wheat. They might also have  reminded the administration that  only by larger exports could the  trade balance against us be remedied. But perhaps so Ion g as  the government can float loans  in order that individual Canadi  ans can do business in the United  States without a discount, loans  that all the people must pay, the  appeal of the farmers will not be  considered.  0 O'     O   u O   '   o  The farmers of Alberta can  i'see that there is something wrorg  in this heavy borrowing of money to convenience some millionaires that are in the trade of adding more to their millions at the  people's expanse, but the farmers and others in British Columbia can not see that borrowing  is at its best bad business on the  part of individuals as well as  nations. When the time of repaying loans with millions in interest comes along the people  will then begin to realize what  they are up against. Great Britain is paying her war expenditure as she' goes along, . whj  should not Canada try to do the  same?  01 O   .   O '   Ct      o  Conscription Not a Shield.  Conscription means that a hundred thousand more men will be  called upon to serve the state.  It does not mean that Sir Robert  Borden and his colleagues are to  be absolved from their duty of  serving the state, or that they  are to be exempt from criticism.  The government cannot shield itself behind the soldiers.  Conscription of men is not an  excuse for failure to conscript  wealth, or to make wealth pay  its-fair share of taxation. The  men at the front are'giving, the  men who will go to the front  will give, all that .they have to  the service of the state. It is  strange that they shall pay not  only theirown debt, but the debt  of the profiteers, who are not  only escaping their share of the  burden, but making money out  of the war. Those who are sac-'  rificing all to the nation and the  cause should not also be regarded  as making a sacrifice for the  profiteers.  On the contrary, the conscription of men, and the service and  sacrifice of soldiers, are powerful arguments for making others  do their share. Those who are  not called upon to fight should  pay.   Those who are not asked  wealth to the cause. Money  should not be regarded as more  sacred than life.  Conscription of men does not  excuse the government for its  whitewashing of the Hon. Robert Rogers, which has discredited it in the eyes o'f a large element of the people. Service on  the field does not condone lack  of vigor at home.  Conscription is a national measure, adopted for the safety of  the nation,' not for the fafety of  the government or the strengthening 'of a party. It is not a  plank in a'political,platform nor  is it right to play politics with a  great  Star.  national  issue.���������Toronto  That the reasons why recruiting has not been attended with  the success that it should have  been in the' province of Quebec  and other eastern provinces are  many, but the real reason may  be that the people of these provinces, being nearer to Ottawa,  are more familiar with the doings  of the government than the people of British Columbia, where  the largest percentage of soldiers  have enlisted. Former minister  of militia, Col. Sam Hughes, enlightened the House of Commons  a short time ago on many matters, both as to the inner workings in  the different offices at  r,  Ottawa and also,the Canadian  war office in London. Col. Hughes says that in his time as minister of militia General Carson ad-:  ministered the whole of Canada's  war department in England with  less than fifty men, and did it  well and efficiently, although the  high commissioner for Canada  in  London, Sir George Perley,  way and it takes 1500 men to do!  this same job and, according to  Sir Sam, he is not doing it half  as well. He also challenged the  premier to deny that he did not  see this state of things going on  all the while he sported around  in England. Further, Sir Sam  states that there are six buildings filled with these gentlemen.  Answering a question, the ex-  minister said that he understood  these fifteen hundred were principally men in uniform and he  did not know why they were not  at the front, and again reiterated  that his information was that  there were six buildings full of  gentlemen doing the work which  was formerly done by General  Carlson and his fifty men, which  included the clerical service and  quartermaster-general's staff.  There can be no doubt that  there is a lot of this class of inefficiency and incompetency on  the part of the present govern-  r  ment. It is no wonder that recruiting has been so slack in the  east, where they had an intimate  knowledge of the workings of Sir  Robert Borden and his friends.  o     o -:'0.."..:o " o , r  To Claim Compensation.

CZD  HTHE REASONS for this enviable cor.di-  ���������* 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.

No party government, Liberal  or Conservative, is qualified to  give the solution to the great  problems .which are facing the  nation today. The election of  even a strong Liberal government, whole-heartedly supporting the nation's cause, not owing  its election or its continuance in  office to Quebec, support, would  be a mistake. Both would handicap the nation's effectiveness in  the great struggle which is becoming ever more critical. But  more than all it would be a mistake, - perhaps irretrievable, to  elect a ministry ,to which the  support of the Quebec represen-  tatives would be essential. Anything is better than that���������and  the people of the West know it  even though some politicians  apparently will not recognize it.  ���������Saskatoon Star.  WHEN TO CUT ALFALFA.  When the new shoots of alfalfa at the crown of the plant are  from one to two inches high the  crop is ready to be cut for hay,  is the advice given by specialists  of the Ohio Agricultural Experimental Station. The common  rule that the crop --must not be;  cut until a tenth in bloom does  not always hold, these experts  claim, for often the small shoots  at thebase of the plant get so  large before this period of bloom  that' they are injured at harvest.

Pattullo, minister of lands, are at present touring northern and central British  Columbia in the interests of their  respective departments to ascertain for themselves the conditions in the hitherto partly unknown portions of the province,  with an eye towards remedying  the present unsatisfactory conditions and also to obtain first  hand information on which the  government can base their plans  for future development. It is  in line with the policy of the  present administration that its  ministers should acquaint themselves, personally, with all matters coming under their respective departments. It is to be  hoped that the present tour,  which is the first that has been  undertaken since the new government took office, will be of  great benefit to the north.  Mrs. Capt.

Fougner, returned from Kitimat. and the  other Indian villages in his agency. He reports that all the  braves under his charge are  financially well off and the condition among them is generally  good. The reason for this is that  the Indians can obtain employment in the canneries during the -  fishing season and outside of  that they are engaged in hand-  logging or in the camps of the  different concerns operating on  the coast.  John Widsten, fisheries officer,  is at present looking over the  lakes and spawning grounds at  the head of the Bella Coola river.  It is the intention to have all the  present obstructions in the river  removed and the officials of the  fisheries department are looking  over same to determine the amount required for their removal.  There are log jams that absolutely block the passage, of the  salmon to the spawning beds and  it is important that these obstructions be removed at once:  The Courier again reminds the  settlers of the valley to make an  extra effort to make a display of  vegetables and other farm produce at the coming exhibition at  Prince Rupert, on the 19th, 20th  and 21st of this'month.

The farmers of Alberta can  see that there is something wror g  in this heavy borrowing of money to convenience some millionaires that are i-n the trade of adding-.more to their millions at the  people's expense, but the farmers and othors in British Columbia can not see, that borrowing  is.at its best bad business on the  part of individuals as well as  nations. When the time of repaying loans with millions inin-  terest comes along the people  will then begin to realize what  they are up against. Great Britain is paying her war expenditure as she goes along, , why  should not Canada try to do the  same?   .  Expansive Borrowing.  It has developed during the  course of a discussion in the  senate that the last Canadian  loan of $100,000,000 in New York  netted the Dominion government  the sum. of $96,250,000. This  means that .the- country paid  $3,750,000 for flotation expenses,  surely a very high price in an  allied market. The bonds, we  are further told, will net the  buyers slightly over six per cent.  The whole loan, if repaid at the  end of two years, will have.cost  the country $12,000,000 in interest and $3,750,000 in "flotation  expenses���������a .total of $15,750,000.  If, as asserted in "the" commons,  this loan was'not .negotiated to  pay in terest^mong other things;  on loans already in existence but I burden, butmaking money out  was negotiated  to balance.ex- of the war.   Those who are sac-  Conscription  Not a Shield.  Conscription means that a hundred thousand more men will be  called upon to serve the state.  It does not mean that SirRobert  Borden and his colleagues are to  be absolved from their duty of  serving the state, or that they  are to be exempt from criticism.  The government cannot shield itself behind the soldiers.  Conscription of men is not an  excuse for failure to conscript  wealth, or to make wealth pay  its fair share of taxation." -The  men at the front are "giving, the  men who. will go to the front  will give, all that they have to  the service of the state.. It is  strange that they-shall pay,not  only their own debt, but-the. debt  of the profiteers, who are'not  only escaping their share of .the  change, it will become obvious  that all the people are being  taxed nearly $16,000,000 in two  years for the benefit of those individual Canadians doing busi-  nes in the United States.  o    o    o    o    o  Normally, exports should pay  for imports, but when a nation  buys more than it sells exchange  goes against it���������that is, unless  the debtor nation ships gold to  ���������make up the difference. Canada  has no gold to ship to the United  States,,so we_resort to the expensive expedient of borrowing  money there in order that certain Canadian can pay their bills  there at par. This is good financing for the Canadian trader but  mighty poor business for the.  Canadian .people at large. Of  course, the natural correction of  exchange is the shipping of more  goods to the United States, but  we can't do that very well because of our tariff wall, which is  maintained against us by our  own desire.  o    o    o    o    o  A report  of  a  non-partisan  meeting of Alberta farmers, who  wired the premier strongly protesting against the action of the  board of grain supervisors prohibiting the export of wheat to  the United States.   The farmers  reminded the government that  it   had   removed   the   duty   on  wheat.     They might also have  reminded the administration that  only by larger exports could the  trade balance against us be remedied.    But perhaps so long as  the government can float loans  in order that individual Canadi-  wealth to the cause. Money  should not be regarded as more  sacred than life.  Conscription of men does not  excuse the government for its  whitewashing of the Hon. Robert Rogers, which has discredited it in the eyes of a large ele-  ment of the people. .Service on  the field does not condone lack  of vigor at home.  Conscription is a national measure; adopted for the safety of  the nation, not.for the fafety of  the government or the strengthening of a party. It is. not a  plank in a-political platform nor  is ii right to play politics with a  great national issue.���������Toronto  Star.

Former ^minister  of militia, Col. Sam Hughes, enlightened the House of Commons  a short time ago on many matters, both as to the inner'workings in the different offices at  Ottawa and also the Canadian  waroffice in London. Col. Hughes says that in his time as minister of militia General Carson administered the whole of Canada's  wardepartment in England with  less than fifty men, and did it  well and efficiently, although the  high.commissioner for Canada  pay. Those who are not asked in London, Sir George Perley,  to risk life or limb, or even to attempted to thwart the general  give up ease and comfort, should in his work at every turn. Now  be compelled to contribute their {Sir George is doing it all his own  rificing all to the nation and the  cause should not also be regarded  as making a sacrifice for the  profiteers.  On the contrary, the conscription of men, and the service and  sacrifice of soldiers, are powerful arguments for making others  do their share. Those who are  not called upon to fight should  way and it lakes 1500 men to do  this same job and, according to  Sir Sam, he is not doing it half  as well. He also challenged the  premier to deny that he did not  see this state of things going on  all the while he sported around  in England. Further, Sir Sam  states that there are six buildings filled with these gentlemen.  Answering a question, the ex-  minister said that he understood  these fifteen hundred were principally men in uniform and he  did noUcnow why they were not  at the front, and again reiterated  thaVhis information was that  there were six buildings full of  gentlemen doing the work which  was formerly done by General  Carlson, and his fifty men, which  included the clerical service and  quartermaster-general's staff.  There can be no doubt that  there is a lot of this class of inefficiency and incompetency on  the part of the present government. It is no wonder that recruiting has been so slack in the  east, where they had an intimate  knowledge of the workings of Sir  Robert Borden and his friends.  To Claim Compensation.

When the new shoots of alfalfa at the crown of the plant are  from one to two inches high the  crop is ready to be cut for hay,  is the advice given by specialists  of the Ohio Agricultural Experimental Station. The common  rule that the crop \rnust not be  cut until-a tenth in bloom does  not always hold, these experts  claim, for often the small shoots  at the base of the plant get so  large before this period of bloom  that" they are injured at harvest.

The election of  even a strong: Liberal government," whole-heartedly supporting the nation's cause, not owing  its election or its continuance in  office to Quebec support, would  be a mistake.   Both would handicap,the nation's effectiveness in  the great struggle which is becoming ever more critical.    But  more than all itr would be a misr  take,  perhaps irretrievable,   to  elect a ministry to  which the  support of the Quebec representatives would be essential. Anything is better than that���������and  Lhe people of the West know it  even    though   some   politicians  apparently will not recognize it.  ���������Saskatoon Star.  WHEN TO CUT ALFALFA.  When the new shoots of alfalfa at the crown of the plant are  from one to two inches high the  crop is ready to be cut for hay,  is the advice given by specialists  of the Ohio Agricultural Experimental Station. The common  rule that the crop \rnust not be  cut until a tenth in bloom does  not always hold, these experts  claim, for often the small shoots  at the base of the plant get so  large before this period of bloom  that' they are injured at harvest.  Plain foods are growing into  favor again the world over since  the* war. "Economy meat pies  and puddings" are the latest  forms in which* food is served in  certain fashionable houses.  ^-  Relies on   Canada.  Baron Rhonda, the British food  controller, in' a cabled message  to the Canadian food commissioner, says: "We look to, the  resources of Canada and to the  indomitable energy of Canadians  for .an answer that will shatter  Germany's threat of starvation.  The certainty that we can rely  on your whole-hearted co-operation not only in using every  ounce of national energy to increase production, but in equitable adjustment of prices, gives  me the greatest encouragement."
