Mrs. Jack Mitchell was a pas-
senger on the Charmer, Sattuday,
for Victoria, where she intends
spending a month visiting her friend, Miss Raper, of Strawberry
Vale.
There will be a meeting of the
Board of Trade, in the Courtenay
Club rooms, this (Thursday) afternoon at 3 o'clock. All (who have the
town's interests at heart are invited
to fto attend, as there is much business of importance to lie attended
to at once.
Tlie bridge over the Courtenay River was tightened up last
week. The workmen climbed
around on the top of the structure
like cats. Any ordinary landlubber would have fallen off, and
either got a good ducking in the
river or broken himself to pieces on
the flooring of the bridge.
Mr. Cecil Mitchell has just returned from a hunting trip with
Mr. Cecil Smith, of Comox, aud
Mr. Warner, of Eos Ai geles.
They went by rig from Comox to
Campbell River, by launch to Duncan and Menzie's Hay, where they
secured four bear, one of which
was the largest ever shot in that
district. They trailed a panther
for some distance but failed to find
him, though they found a mink lie
had killed.

Persons wishing to get their
names on the voters' list must have
their names registered with the
government agmt, at Cumberland,
on or before the 7II1 day of April.
British subjects or foreigners who
have been naturalized and have
resided iu the Comox Electoral
District for the last six months are
eligible for registration.
On Tuesday morning word was
sent to Game warden Dawley that
a fine deer bad been shot to death
near mine ,S. He at once started
out to iuvestigrte ������md found that
the carcass was still almost warm,
showing that the animal had not
been long shot. As this is the
closed season Mr. Dawley set\t the
carcass to tile hospital at Cumberland, and the patients there will
feast on venison for r. time.
On Thurday evening last, Chas.
Anderson was in a desperate hurry
to get from oue side of Courtenay
to the other, so great was his
hurry that he forgot the little formality of letting his horse walk
across the bridge, in accordance
with the government regulations.
Constable Hannay was standing at
! the corner of Union aud Isabel
streets when he heard the racket
and  was  so startled   that he   had
I great difficulty in stopping Anderson's   hoise at    the top   of the
1 hill, so fast was it going. However, with Uie help of Game Warden Dawley lie secured the driver
and his companion and laid the
case before Magistrate McPhee,
who immediately convened court
in the sitting room ,of the Riverside
hotel, and after hearing the evidence gave Anderson a lecture on
the enormity of his crime and fined
him $10.

There was  a   desperate  attempt
j made to rob   Fraser   iV  Bishop's
, store on Monday  night,   a burglar
: shot a policeman, and his coinpan-
I ions escaping in   a  launch.     The
following is sent  us by  a corres- j
pondeut :
For some time past Messrs Fraser
I & Bishop hwe had a special watch
I on their store  as,   according to re-
I reports  going around   at   present,
some things had mysteriously gone ]
missing about four weeks ago. Acting on advice of Chief Stevenson,:
two special constables were sent to
sleep in and keep watch on the store
Until last   night   nothing  unusual
had happened. As they were about
to enter the premises  they heard a
strange   noise  inside.     Going  in
quietly tbey were at once confront-
by a powerful   man  attempting to
rob the place,   who   carried  witli
him a gun, and seeing that he was
in a tight place, fired at  the  first j
constabla and missed him, but tin- j
fortunately the charge hit the sec-1
ond  constable,   Harry nWestaway. I
Constable Ross at once took action !
and after a very sharp struggle disarmed  the   niaurader,   while   the
wounded man   endeavoured to call
for help.    Constable McKenzie responded, but Ross bad overpowered his man  by that   time,     word
was immediately  phoned   to Cumberland for the  Chief and   for the
doctor.   The constable died shortly
after, the shot   having  pierced his
lungs.
The prisoner's real name is at
present unknown. He was taken
to Cumberland jail at once.
The inquest took place yesterday
afternoon.

level   and after   being sawed   into
dimensions is  loaded  onto   trucks
and   run,   by   gravity,    down    to;
scows about half a mile   away, and j
then taken to Vancouver,   Victoria '

SANDWICK
A festive party assembled at
Mrs. William's rauch on Thursday
tlie 27th instant aud were favoured
witli a nice dry evening for the
journey.
Newcomers continue to join our
growing community and if only the
supply of lumber were equal to the
demand the growth and development of the choicest portion of the
valley would be even more marked.
Witli the advent of the spring
Sandwick residents are eagerly
wailing to see what improvements
are to be undertaken. The road
between Sandwick and Courtenay
in damp weather is but a morass
for the pedestrian. It needs but
little outlay to put down a narrow
sidewalk, aud a single plank would
be wide enough for the sober. ;
Should the widening of the I
Campbell River road bs continued i
this year it is to be hoped that as
few trees as possible will be sacri-1
ficed. Tho pleasant grouping of
the trees near tbe Presbyterian
churchaud the tre;s by the roadside
down Mission Hill, picturesque to
the eye and welcome oaues ou a
hot summer's day should be preserved as far as possible. Once
gone they are gone altogether; of
course motorists would have no
trees at all, but just a straight
track of unbroken monotony.
Roadman, spare the tree!

An Essay
The following essay was written
by one of the pupils at the Courtenay school, aged 9 years: "A
farmer has lots to do all the time.
He has to get up early in the
morning and milk his cows aud
feed his horses. Then he will feed
his hens aud let them out. After
this is done be foes in and eats his
breakfast. Then he lets the cows
and horses out. He will then get
angry because something dosn't
suit him, which always happens.
'Got to go to town to get this horse
shod,' he says, 'That means half a
day's work lost.' When he comes
home he hitches the horses up and
ploughs a bit of land. That
night when he is in bed, he hears a
great noise going on in the hen
house. In the end, after cursing
the hens, he gets his gun and goes
out to see what the fuss is about,
lie kills whatever is disturbing the
hens and goes back to the house,
then he goes to bed aud sleeps like
a log till morning

with a serious accident while driving from Courtenay to Royston, on
Tuesday evening of last week.
They got off the road onto the railway grade, ner Royston, and the
horse backed over the 30 foot en-
bankment. Messrs, Grieves, Ash,
Carter and Audall heard the noise
and went to their rescue, where
they found the horse standing on
his head and the buggy in the
ditch.    After considerable difficulty
Conviction Quashed
Albert Pickard, the Cumberland
man. who was fined $5 for alleged
obstruction of the sidewalk at
Union, Comox, during the recent
miners' strike, had the conviction
quashed by Mr. Justice Clement in
a written judgement given on
Thursday afternoon at Vancouver.
The case had been previously
argued in chambers in the morning. The ground of the appeal
was that it was not stated in the
proceedings in what district the alleged offence occured, and therefore there was nothing to show
that the presiding magistrate (the
police magistrate of Cumberland),
had any jurisdiction.

World), by the most modern process, Because k Is from a Farmers
Mill that grinds honest Hour, and honest feed for farmers use. Because

Public Utilities
It is with pleasure that we note
tbat a renewed interest is being
taken iu the matter of an adequate
water supply for our town. With
such a system 'properly installed,
fire protection would be assured, a
sewerage system could be added
which would safeguard our health,
after which we could consider electric lighting.
It is apparent that some do uot
understand the situation as regards
the putting in of a first-class water
system and all it involves. The
time it requires to look up a source
of supply that has quality and
quantity, and sufficient elevation to
secure required pressure for fire
streams, arranging for right of way
.storage site and the many details
required by tbe Government Water
Department, all of which require
expert advice and tlie best eugin-J
eering skill, and is very expensive, j
Even after a system is installed in ,
a new town like ours, it usually requires from one to two years for!
the majority of the inhabitants to
get the water habit and   have connections made with the public sup-
ply, in fact   in   many   cases wells j
have to be condemned by the public health officers before their use is
abandoned and it is frequently several years before a new system is in
a position to pay dividends.
It is a recognized fact that all
municipalities and corporations
should own their owu public utilities, and our laws provide tbat in
case of any such utility being installed or owned by a private or
public company, such property may
be expropriated at any time the
town is incorporated and decides to
do so, at a slight advance over cost

of installation. In case the plant
is small and the supply insufficient,
being outgrawn by tlie town, very
little value would attach to it and
the franchise could be revoked or
another supply brought in. In view
of these facts, if a private company
went to the trouble to instal a very
creditable water system and operated it for tbe first years of its
(bone-picking) existence, ourtDwn
could, if incorporated, expropriate
it after it bad been proven and become a paying proposition and thus
reap the benefit of its increased
value as a public utility.
Hy that time also we would have
a greater number of substantial
citizens to aid us in shouldering the
many new burdens, financial and
otherwise, that incorporation would
lay upon us. So let us conclude
by saying to our enterprising and
public-spirited citizens who are
willing to do so, go ahead and put
in the best water system you know
how, one that will be a credit
to JJCourtenay for years to
come, even wben she has ten thousand inhabitants, and after you get
it on a paying basis we will incorporate, issue debentures and take it
over from you at a fraction of its
value. By all means water and
light, then incorporation.���Com.

Afler the installation a banquet
was held, at which appropriate remarks were made by ihe new officers aud tlie retiring Financial secretary, Pro. H. P. Millard, who
has held the office for the past three
years, and it is largely due to his
efforts that the lodge is in its flourishing condition to-day. A number
of applications for membership are
now before the board.
A basket ball game and dance
was held iu the  K. of P. Hall, on
Tuesday evening, the Cumberland
stalwarts going to defeat to the
tune uf 36 to 8. What looked like
a very even game during the first
ten minutes ended as above. Comox was fortunate in having such
a player as Bosewell in their midst,
he being the pick of both sides.
Special mention might be made of
all the Comox team, each man being in the right place at the right
time, all being out to win, their
shooting was excellent. Of the
Cumberland team, Cameron and
Wilson, checks, aud Keappock,
centre, were particular stars. Each
side infused life into the game, but
real rough play was not prominent.
Only five penalty shots were given,
two points being scored by cumber-
land. The visitors were at a little
disadvantage owing to the low ceiling.   The teams lined up as follow
