Cood afternoon.
What are you doing to keep Comox white?
Potatoes are so plentiful on the
Prairies this summer, that one
storekeeper iu Estevan is trying to
give away 500 bushels to any one
who will go to the trouble to go
for them.
The Japs, not content with capturing the fishing industry of
of British Columbia have learned
how to make the necessary machinery, and have gone back home and
commenced canning fish there.
Last year they shipped over $300,
000 worth of canned salmon into
Canada and the United States.
The new California State law
provides for six occupations which
orientals may engage in. Canadian
law allows orientals to engage in
any occupation the white man will
allow him to. Its up to the white
people not to allow themselves to
be supplanted by the Asiatics.
Especially iu this Valley, the best
and most prosperous in the whole
of B, C.
We have a letter in connection
wi-h some irregularity in the payment of some of the road workers.
It is not our province to air these
matters, unless in the public gosd.
If anyone thinks he has a grievance, there is a way to remedy it.
Lay the matter before the Superintendent! who will examine the roll
and time sheet. If there is any
discrepancy he is bottud to act.

Union Street
Courtenay
A new industry, that of conden--
ing milk is to be started here in the
near future. Messrs. Chief Justice
Hunter, R, Kelly, J. Crome and
A.S. Arkley were here on Monday
and decided to at ouce establish a
factory here. They expressed themselves as pleaafed with the valley,
and feel assured that tlieir enterprise will be a boon to the farming
community. They propose to take
the whole of the milk, produced by
the farmer, and will pay about 36c
per pound butter fat.
Right here is where trouble will
likely arise. The creamery Association take all the cream they
can get aud have been paying about
32c per pound butter fat. and have
excluded oriental produced now the
Condensed Milk Co., come along
and will take the whole milk and
pay about 36c per lb. butter fat.
They will want all the milk they
can get, aud probably to that eud
will not exclude orientals.
Will the white man compete with
these gentry? Right now is the
time to decide what they will do.
Already the Japs have got a
strong foothold in this Valley.
Some of the largest and best farms
are already rented to them.    Its a
crying shame.    A strong anti-oriental league should be formed here
at   once.     White people   should
absolutely refuse to use foodstuffs
grown  by yellow  men, and those
I who are guilty of selling or leasing
tlieir   lands to   them should   be
ostracised.    This  may seem to be
! strong language but when one sups
j with the devil he must use a long
j handled spoon.   This is a question
affecting all the white people in this
J district and if Ccmox is to be kept
white

Life on this sunburnt ridge of
sand is just one long succession of
thrills and heart throbs, ups and
downs, sweet hopes and sudden
bumps. Its worth while living in
Courtenay, the price is high but
the entertainment is good.
This week we had the usual dog
scrap at the corner, the regular

"Ram Pasture" and a one-round
knock out on Union Street.

The necessity of incorporation
for Courtenay has been strongly
emphasized during the past two or
three weeks. Tramp printers have
been in town and gathered up a
quantity of work and carted it off
lo Vancouver to be done. A   clothing traveller has  been here  soliciting orders for clothing, to be made
in Vancouver (some say by scab or
cliinese labor) at any rate by nou
union labor.    Fake or novelty advertising painters have  also made
their appearance, gathered in a few
sheckels and departed for other pastures.     Stock  salesmen are    also
busily engaged in trying to induce
the unwary to speculate iu their,
wares. They one aud all take every |
dollar they can lay their hands on j
out of the district, not a cent of it
comes back.   Our legitimate home 1
dealers who live here and pay taxes
are defrauded of the business.   A |
good   healthy tax    on   transient j
traders would help some. |

I'll drown   out my thirst with a  bucket

And with what is left from the cost of

I'll  buy   Panamas for   my wife  and iny
And hike 'tu the   tailor's and   order a   JJOX  220 CoiHftCn&Y
I'll drop at the butcher's and buy lambs'
hindqaurters,
I rather prefer it to scrapple and hash,
And also a steak from  the same cut  as

All tliis I can  buy with  what's left of
my cash.
I'll   go  to the   grocer's and   cart home
some crakers,
Some bacon and   cheese, and a bushel
of beans,
While other chaps fill up on varnish and
lacquers
I'll  still  have  some  money  for new
magazines.
The foolkiller waits  round the corner to

The fellows who whack up their hard-

For red paint that is sold by the glass or

Which   should  have   been   spent on

The  bonehead,   whose aim   is to  steep

Pays dear for the stuff   which the barkeepers sell;
Tie takes the first   prize as a  champion

Who piles on red  paint at the corner

Dangerous Railway Crossing, near
Electric  Railway from
No. 8 Mine
Arising out of tha publicity given
to this in our last issue we hear
that Mr. F, C. Gamble, Engineer
of Railways for the Provincial
Government, says that this dangerous crossing which he personally
inspected sometime ago must be
put in safe condition by the Wellington Colliery Railway under instructions of the Minister of Railways in accordance with provisions
of Railway Acts, and that he has
taken the matter up with the Prime
Minister. Now that the Hon. Richard McBride's attention has been
drawn to it our readers may rest
assured that not a moment will be
lost in doing all they desire.     ~"~g)
