repulsed by British artillery fire. Tein Tsin despatch, dated Friday, say cabinet approved of China declaring war against Germany.   War proclamation likely to be issued at an early date.
Wednesday: London.-With ground fast drying there is every
"sign of a renewal of Ypres battle. Everywhere artillery fire beginning to increase. Gen. Haig's troops continue lo keep up
nightly raids while Germans attacking ljollebeke were easily repulsed., Hindenburg letting [portion of line held by the French
severely alone around Craonne' and Chemin Des Dames, possibly
< because British advance, threatening vital railroad communications, is more dangerous. Aiimen busy in Flanders, eight Ger-
m m plants put out of action, five completely demolished, one
British machine sacrificed. Russian socialist ministers Tseretli
and Skobeleff and Austrian socialist Otto Bauer, are working for
peace. Political situation in Europe is as interesting as the military .situation. Socialists infinitely stronger than they were
three years ago.
Paris.-French troops last night broke into lines of crown prince
. on Champagne front in three places, inflicting losses on Germans
and bringing back many prisoners.   Germans attacked between
Avocourt wood and Hill 304, Verdun sector, but were driven off,
suffering heavy losses. ^
Kispinev.—Austro-German troops between Dneister and Prufh
have been thrown back at Chotin.   ' " tt
Petrograd.-Cowards are executed. Gen. Korniloff rules with
iron had." Prompt severity saved' all worth saving of Russian
armies at the front. German situation now anything but enviable. Premier Kerensky accepts new responsibility thrown upon

fifteen hundred feet.

gift from above.    Cannot refuse it, exposed to stroke of fate.
Thursday: London.-An air of expectancy for big things prevailed in London today. Slowly but surely the grip on Lens, the
great coal centre of France, is tightening. Canadians now astride
Lens-Bethune road and are within' striking distance of the enemy,
who have made their last stand to hold the present line. Official
silence regarding operations in Flanders during past twenty-four
hours regarded as probably'holding greatest significance. Roar
of big guns as they hurl tons of lead against the German lines
can be distinctly heard. Speculation revived in .London whether
„the German fleet may not be planning another sally into North
Sea as frequent appearance of small German vessels from their
base are reported. Seven Norwegian sailing ships and ninety
men reported lost in heavy gale near Greenland. Lloyd George
made clear in an address at a luncheon in honor of Premier Pas-
hitch of Serbia, the independence of Serbia will be one of Britain's
demands that must be met before peace is.possible. Gen. Korniloff is steadfast.   Russia will never surrender.
Paris.--Troops of German crown prince last night launched an
attack on French positions east of Vaux Aillon and west of California plateau, Aisne region, but were repulsed, German raids
at St. Mihiels, Verdun sector, and Upper Alsace checked by our

Graham Dynamited
Anti-Conscriptionists Suspected
•Montreal, Aug. 10. —The home
of Hugh .Graham, publisher of
the Montreal Star, was wrecked
by dynamite. . Anti-conscription-
ists are suspected of committing
the outrage. The Star has advocated conscription strongly.
Outrage was preceded by threatening letters to prominent Mon-
trealers. Most violent anti-conscription talk heard so far was
indulged in at last night's meeting' held in LaFontairi Park.
Fern and.'.'- Villeneuve the chief
speaker announce another.meeting to be held soon. Word came
that the governor-general had
signed :;the, conscription bill, ho
fear was.responsible for the opposition to conscription, according to the speaker, as would be
shown in "trenches in Montreal"
'   The salmon  cannery of  the
Tallio Fisheries, is now in actual
operation .and  the first salmon
were" canned there on Saturday
last.   Considering the shortage
experienced in labor, the difficulty of getting supplies, construction materials and all that goes
in building and equipping a fish-
packing plant, the erection of
this establishment has been done
in good time.    The different sections of the plant kept  apace
with main work and the electrical   iighting  of   the   buildings
went into  operation with   the
rest of the plant. , All themach-
inery for the inside working is

the Drayney Fisheries, Namu,
spent a couple of days here last,
week assisting manager Alfred
Jensen, at the local plant, to get
things in order preparatory to,
the canning of fish.
, F. A. Johnson,-with family,
came up from Nootum Bay,
where Mr. Johnson has been engaged in logging, an'd left for
his ranch at Firvale to spend
time during the summer.        ;
The canneries at Rivers Inlet
are practically all closed as far
as the packing of sockeye salmon
is concerned. 'The run this year
was very light, in fact it is the
smallest pack put up at the Inlet
since the year JS97. LocaHy the
run of fall fish is very satisfactory, and fishermen as well as
the cannery operators are well-
plcased. They arc lookii g for-'
wai'd to a good supply of cohoe,
salmon, though perhaps not as
heavy as last year.
Latest from .Kimsquit is that
the sockcyc._.ruri over there was
considerably ahead of the past
two years. Cohoe and other fall
fish are now coming in, numbers
and it is expected that a full pack
or thereabouts will be put up at
that place.
T forget to bring in your Subscription
to the Courier—The more support you
give us, the better paper we will give you.
Dr. M. F. Keeley, D. D. S., of
Vancouver, is at present at the
Bella Coola Hotel practising his
profession. After leaving here
he will spend some time at Ocean
Falls before proceeding south.
Logging operations are coming
nearer to Bella Coola as the
weeks go by. The Pacific Mills
are now in the act of putting up
a new camp, to be known as No.
7, within ten miles of here. This
limit calls for .the building ,ol
four miles of, logging railway
that will have to be. put in before, many logs can be put in the
water. The large paper mill at
Ocean Falls is using up timber
at a great rate and the camps
will have to keep hustling to
keep up the.supply of logs.
Logging superintendent,'- B.
McPhee, made a hurried call
here during the week. He informed the: Courier that all.the
camps, of the company are running to their fullest capacity,
though there is a shortage of
good loggers. One of the re*as-
sohs for this is that so many of
the men of British Columbia,
who follow this calling, are now
serving overseas.
F. Rudge, general manager of
D. C. MacPherson, timber inspector, arrived here during the
week and took a trip up the valley to look over some holdings.
The inspector is a very busy man
as at ali outside places of this
large district he has to do a certain amount of log scaling.
J. W. Hober of Firvale, is in
receipt of a wire from Mrs.
Hober, who underwent a surgical operation at one of the hos:
pitals in Portland, Oregon, saying that she is quite well again
and will visit friends there for
a few weeks before returning.

SATURDAY, AUG. 11, 1917.
National Economy Is Very
Urgent.
The financial situation in the
Dominion is beginning to cause
grave concern among those who
make an intelligent study of
national finances. The facts appear to be that we have borrowed such large sums of money
themselves when,he is making
so much money on his own account.    Sir Joseph, who is chair-1
man of the  Imperial  Munition.
Board, and supposedly the power behind  the-Borden  Government's throne, has said that Can-!
tjdians should   be  ashamed   to!
make so much  money.    Every- j
body will admit that Sir Joseph!
ought to know. |
Another, company which made
considerable hay while the sun
was shining in 11)15 is the Imperial Oil Company. In fact the
Imperial Oil Company is at the
top of the list. Like Abou Ben
Adhein its name heads all the
rest. The 1 mperial Oil Company
is the name of the Standard Oil
Company—Mr. John Rockefeller
—takes to do business in Canada. In 1915 the Imperial Oil
Company paid in excess profits
tax of $734,045. This means
that the company made almost
three million dollars more than
a legitimate profit, of which it
kept two million three hundred
thousand dollars

The Conscription Question.
The following editorial on conscription is taken from the Grain
Growers' Guide, an entirely independent paper. No publication in Western Canada better
voices the sentiments of the farmers of Western Canada than
the Grain Growers' Guide.

her own free will and accord as

other enemies of Germany. The

conservation of its financial resources.
It is understood that the Canadian banks have intimated that
while they might be in a position
to help out the government, such '
aid can be proffered only at the
expense of the commercial com-i
munity. The administration has
been forced to accept this offer
and the result cannot but have
a serious effect in the country,
when there ensues a curtailment
of credit. The situation in brief
■ is that the banks cannot finance
the nation and theindustrial and
commercial interests at the same
time. Naturally the national
interest will have the call, The
need for national economy is
therefore very urgent.     . ,

Profits!
The William Davies Company,
one of Sir Joseph Flavelle's nu-!
merous activities, paid in 1915
an excess profits tax of $109,623
which means that the William
' Davies Company made in one
year $438,492 more than it should.
When one considers Sir Joseph's
protean disguises as a food exploiter, the many packing companies in which he is interested .
here and in the United States
and in England, one begins to '.
understand the causes of the
high cost of living. One also
begins to understand how Sir
Joseph can scourge .the other
profiteers for making hogs of

A careful study of these two | Canadian Expeditionary Forces
tables proves that in evc-iy pro- have been good. In fact, these
vince where there is a large percentage of British born (born in
British Isles) enlistments for our
every citizen of our country, the
government is fully justified in
demanding that all the resources
of our nation, the men, the money',   the food,   and   everything
else be utilized in the prosecution
of this war.   In such a crisis,
the conscription of money and
the conscription of wealth in all
forms is notoutof harmony with
the true principles of democracy.
It is the same principle that has
been adopted in Great Britain,
in NeW'Zealand and the United
States, three" democratic countries.    But it should not be overlooked that in all these three
countries mentioned the governments conscripted the wealth of
the country, either before or at
the same time that they conscripted   the   man   power.    In
England the taxation is enor
mous.   No one is exempt.   The
t >
wealthy are being compelled to
pour but their wealth for the
nation's defence. .'The.same is
true in New Zealand, and the
taxation proposals before" the
American Congress will make it
figures prove conclusively the
more "British-born" the greater
were the enlistments.
Isn't He Dense.
, The press despatches of the
Prince George election inquiry
say that W. J. Bowser, lawyer
for his pall W. R. Ross, asked
all witnesses how they voted and
intimated that the Conservatives
had means to find out for whom
the voters in that district marked their ballots. Mr. Bowser,

members of the House, are millionaires. They will do no fighting and many of them havein-
creased their wealth considerably
since the war began. These men
, should be forced to pay and pay
..handsomely .towards the cost of
the war. It would be impossible
to, compel them to make any
sacrifice that would be at all
equal to the sacrifice of merfwho
are going to the front.. ■,
In the fight over the conscription bill at Ottawa, neitherparty
officially proposes anything approaching the conscription of
wealth. It is impossible to understand how our representatives can be so long silent on the
wealth question. All around
4lhem they see men who possess
tl eir millions and live in luxury.
These representatives all'declare
that our war is a war for democracy. If democracy means anything, it means equality of opportunity. There is no equality
in demanding that young men
give up their lives for the defence of the nation while the
older men who cannot fight are
allowed to plunder their country
in its hour of agony."

Oh,
\)i/HAT person so happy and contented as the prosperous farmer?
117HAT person so independent?
IXTHAT ambition more noble than to
be a producer of  the necessaries
of life ?     ,
Bella  Coola  farmers are independent)
they are strangers to hard times.
View of a ranch in Bella Coola Valley.
HTHE 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 fact1 was established at the Prince
Rupert exhibition last year when farm pro-'
duce from Bella Coola Valley carried away
over twenty first prizes.
[ELLA 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.

THE, ART OF FLYING.
The most difficult part of flying is landing. In fact, according to high authorities in the
British flying corps, nearly the
whole art of flying lies in landing and a man who can land well
under any conditions will be able
to do anything else in the air on
his own initiative, given a sound
nerve. ' Nothing but experience
makes it possible to land almost
anywhere in a bad country with
the engines stopped dead, and
to drop down faultlessly on to a
strange landing place without
any indication as to the. direction
of the wind or the slope of the
ground.
The largest supply of available water power in the world
is located in Canada. It is twice
the available surply of the United States.
Good Dairy Cows Are Cheapest
One remarkably satisfactory
result of keeping simple dairy'
records yields of milk and cost
of fesd, is the knowledge gained
that cows of good dairy type do
repay the cost of extra feed.
One example may be given.
Not far from St. Hyacinthe,
I Quebec, one hundred cows produced 104,854 pounds of milk
more during 1916 than one hundred did in 1915.    The 1915 rec-
i
ords showed that ten were not
paying so they were beefed, and
again in 1916 eleven were sent
to the block, being replaced by
better milkers. Better feeding
contributed largely to the above
noted big increase in the milk
