Letters to the Editor
Dear Sir:
1 have read with great interest the
letter written by "Finance'' in your
issue of the 5tll hist. As a literary effort
it commands respect, and no doubt his
motive is purely philanthropic.
Prom bis remarks, I should judge,
that he is a man of genius, as lie clearly
states that he is ''sounding a warning
note to those who have the average intelligence, but, .art; apt to fall," thus
posing as a good (though somewhat conceited) Shepherd, suffering agony on
account of the mere Common Sheep,
It is au act of daring, perhaps, for an
"aVerage person" to suggest that
"Finance" would be better employed in
minding bis own business.
It may interest bim to know lhat there
are men, even iu litis simple rural district
quite capable of judging what is a good
investment, and what is not, although
they would uot claim to belong to a higher class than that of the "average intelligent. ''
Furthermore, f have resided in tlie
maratime province and the middle west,
both excellent (arming countries, and 1
emphatically state that I never came in
contact with fanners who are possessed
with a better business ability than the
ranchers of this beautiful Comox valley,
Also, from a financial standpoint, they
have been very successful, showing that
their efforts have been crowned with
Very faithfully yours,
Harry i;. Brine.

Editor Courtenay Review,
I noticed in a recent edition of your
paper, a note stating that the record (or
gravel hauling, held by whom 1 don t
know, has been broken by the latest addition to th; stall' of road foremen, Mr.
Beaton. The notice of the breaking of
the record is good as it will act as an incentive to the others to try and surpass
it. If you will permit me a small space
in your valuable paper, Mr. Editor, 1
should like to submit, for tbe approval
of your readers, a few mathematical calculations which I have made on the sub-
The statement made, if 1 understand
it aright, was that Mr. Beaton with six
teams and four men, in the pit, hauled
ninety loads of gravel a distance ol about
one mile in a day of nine hours, which
is the usual nuiulier of hours worked by
road men. Assuming that six teams
hauled ninety loads ol gravel, this works
out at fifteen loads apiece  per day.    1'il-

Provincial Commissioner  Hears Objections and Says the
Public will be Protected
On Wednesday last Provincial Water
Controller Young, of Victoria, visited
Courtenay to look into the water question
here. He Inspected the springs where
the Co. intend yetting lhe water also
Browns river. Cuagcs have been set
and in a mouths time a waterworks
engineer will visit fbetn and report.
In the evening a meeting was held ill
the Board of Trade rooms, at which tile
citizens were invited to give their opinions
as to whether or not tltey were in favor
of having the government grant n license
to the Co. or to hold it lor the citizens.
Dr. Crompton said that the citizens had no objection to the personalty of the Co. The question
was simply which was the best for
all concerned. It was poor policy
on the part of the citizens to allow
a private company to own the public utilities, such as water and light.
The town was large enough to incorporate and would have to do so
very shortly, anvhow, and might
just as well do so now as some time
later. It wasn't morally right that
a private company should own public utilities,
Mr. Towler said he had been ac
cused of being an American. He
wished to plead guilty, but he was
an extensive property holder and
when the time came would be a full
fledged citizen. Said that in other
towns where he had been, there
was olways more or less friction between water companies and towns
where they had got in.
Mr, McPhee said the town was
scarcely ready for incorporation,but
that at soon as the board of trade
was organized, the Co. got busy
and got their water notices out,
and it was now up to the citizens
to get incorporated as soon as possible to protect themselves. He
had been asked long ags to join
the compauy but had declined,
thinking it would be best for the
citizens to put in the waterworks
themselves, and he was still of the
same opinion.
Mr, Hodson wanted to know if
the company could take all the
water out of the stream which
flowed through his property.
The Controller said that he and
all other riparian owners would be
protected. The government would
see to that. Enough water had to
be left flowing to supply all domestic needs along the stream.
Dr. Millard referred to the water supplied by Mr. Lewis, which the Provincial
health officer had already condemned.
Some time ago an order was issued closing all wells on the east side, Mr. Lewis's
spring needs cleaning out regularly. On
the west side particularly in the orchard
at Mr, Plews and Shannon's the water
was bad in summer and not fit to drink.
He never makes up medicine without
first boiling the water.    There were
u I
disease germs in these wells but album- reasonable time to make surveys, plans,
enords, etc. If typhoid broke out, wells etc., must start in reasonable time and
would have to be closed then where would I finish in reasonable time, Juul put up a

Fatal Automobile Accident
Two Auto Accidents In Nearly the Same Place on Union
Bay Road
A sad accident occured on Mon-1 the young man was dead, took the
day evening on the Union Bay
Road, by which a young life was
crushed out by the overturning of
an automobile, and two women
were very badlv freiglitened. Wm.
Clinton had taken Mrs. Montgomery his sister, and a friend to Union
Bay and ou the return journey the
front wheels got out of the rut in
women home in his car, got Mr,
Clinton and a doctor who went to
the scene of the accident aud took
the remains home. The car was a
new one and the driver was inexperienced.
On Tuesday afternoon another
automobile accident occured on the
the gravel, and when he went to \ Union Bav road, at nearly the same
straighten up the machine ran across [ place the fatal one occured the night
the road, hit a stump and overturn
ed. Young Clinton was pinned
down by the steering wheel, and
the ladies who had with difficulty
got out themselves could not lift
the car. Their cries attracted a
bicyclist who was on his way to
Union Bay, they raised the machine
enough to get him out but his life
was nearly gone and he died in a
few minutes. The boys then started for Union Bay and met 0. H.
Fechner returning from Nanaimo.
He hastened to their relief, found
before. J. Bruce was going along
the road at a pretty fair rate when
the machine suddenly swered and
went over. There were four persons in the car at the time three of
them escaped with minor bruises,
but Mrs. Pickett was io unfortunate as to have her arm broken. Mr.
A. J. Marshall, of Courtenay, was
only a short distance behind them
when the upset occurred, and
assisted in righting the car and took
the party to Cumberland where
medical aid was secured
Three consignments of early potatoes from California were condemned by Inspector Thomas
Cunningham of the fruit pests tie
partment, and ordered to be destroyed ot Vancouver last Thursday
The  potatoes were  found to be
badly infected with phthorimea
opercella, a species of potato moth
that is very bad iu some parts of
California. The consignments
were not only unfit for sale, but
were also a menance to the province, which so far has been kept
free from the zellar moth.
i day flowed Irom these springs, which
raid allow Jill II it I people 1(111 gallons per
day, and il the supply (ailed Maple Lake
could be lapped. There is sufficient at
all times to run Kilpatrick's mill -^ hours
per day 111 dry weather. Said the Co.
were as good financiers as the average
ciluciis. Thought getting 3 or -I hundred horse power for $4000 was good
financing. Did not rush into the Water
Co. had made the proposition that if the
objectors would put in the water they
would drop out.
Mr,  Kirkwood wanted to know il the
Co.   could take all the water   Irom   the
stream, when be bought  his ranch the ,
stream was open aud ran freelyaud thou- i
sandsol salmon went up to spawn.    Now
the  stream is  dammed up, no lish can j
get up and no water runs.
The  controller    said  sufficient  water .
must be left for the riparian owners. ;
Mr. Fechner said that the Oo. had been i
getting options on different ways and ,
means of getting water here, and were
willing to turn the water over to the
citizens if they would go ahead and remunerate them for what they had done,
lie had not sufficient wnter; pumped his
well dry twice daily.
Mr. Allan at the request of the Co.'s
solicitor, said that at a meeting called by
the hoard of Trade a vote was taken of
those present and 11 were in favor of and
.V against incorporation.
The solicitor asked if they had taken
any steps to lind out who were voters
and who were uot.  No.
Mr. Oysterman then submitted that it
was a case when the license should be
granted as there was a demand for water
The question of incorporation should
not be taken into consideration. There
was ample water to supply 2(l,(ltl0 people;
when the supply ran short then was the
time to look for more. Said the proposed source wns the only one available and
I should be used.
The Controller said that the objection
of the Colliery and the reparian owners
were not tenatable, and that a water
investigation would lie carried out here.
An engineer would be here at as early
a date as possible to go iuto the various
sources. He gathered that there was a
unanimous demand for water, and it
was now a question oi the best way of
getting it for all concerned.
He suggested that the citizens meet,
each side select a committee, get together and come to some amicable arrangement.
lie also advised them to consider very
carefully incorporation. He also said
that the impression seemed to be that
the Company were attemqting to "put
something over" on the citizens. The
government would see that nothing like
that would happen. The town would
get a square deal in event of arbitration,
at the same time those who organized
tlie Company would be suitably endowed. The engineer would likely be herein about a month, when he would go
carefullv into the matter and report,
when the gauges which had been set
could be properly read, etc.
The Controller would like to know
within a month who were and who
were not in favor of incorporation. This
list will include tenants and persons
who have bought on agreements.
He also   suggested that any  contracts
entered into end on June 1 of  each year.
It was  uot a   case of   tying up.    If a
companv gets a licenss they will have  a
