Mr. J. S. Shopland and family
will be leaving the Valley shortly
for their large farm on the Prairies.
He will hold an auction sale of all
their farm stock, dairy cattle, sheep
implements, and household effects,
ou Tuesday, March 10. The
greater number of Mr. Shopland's
stock are thoroughbred registered
animals, and somefancy price will
likely be obtained by Mr. Hardy,
the auctioneer.
The best news that the inhabitants of the Valley have had for
some time, came to hand last week
when it was definitely announced
that the Logging Camp would reopen with a full force on the :6 th
of March. Owing to the continued
money stringency and small amount
of building projects reported in the
Prairie Provinces, many predicted
that the camps would not re-open
for some mouths to come.
Monday evening was "Ladies
night" at the Debating Society.
The main event was the exhibiting
of a number of lantern slides depicting some of the old Cathedrals
of England, by Rev. M. Laycock,
who briefly explained their many
beautiful designs and dimensions.
The old land is full "of historic
buildings the like of which will
never be seen in this country, and
which one must see to appreciate.
A dainty lunch was served, followed by by a short musical programme.
Some Good Lots At The Station
The streets through the Station Subdivision are very shortly to be made
these will run from the Cumberland road close to the B, _ N. Station
down to the Union Bay road close to the mill pond. Good large lots,
50 x 120 feet can be had at the present time at $250 each, Corner Lots
53 x 125 for $300, These prices will be raised shortly. Terms 1-4 cash
the balance in 6, 12 a.id 18 months, interest at 7 per cent. As tlie
Union Bay road is fast becoming a favorite residential section of
Courtenay, having a cheerful outlook and being the Island Highway,
tlie town is certain to build up rapidly in that direction, consequently
there will be a considerable amount of traffic in the streets up to the
station and freight shed from that part of the town, This is a good
opportunity for those who wish to start up in business later on, for
those who want a good sized residential property close in, There are
no other lots in Courtenay the size of these that can be bought at anything like the above prices, The plan of the Subdivision can be seen
at any time in my ofiice

Within tlie last three 'years over
three hundred American cities have
adopted what is called the Commission Form of Municipal Government.
The reform may be. said to have for
fundamental principle!): Fixed responsibility, quick action and expert
service. It sprang out of the exigencies following the great flood at Galveston, Texas when that City was
nearly effaced, and required to be rebuilt without delay. The movement
is spreading rapidly and from time to
time new improvements ar..- devised
as different cities take up with it.
Lethbridge is the Prst ci . in West-
em Canada to adopt Commission Gov-
enment and professes to have excell
ed all previous efforts in forming a
city charter.
The I.etli..r;dge chartei provides for
three commissioner. The Mayor;
who is also the Commissioner of Finance and Safety will have a salary Of
$4,000. The Commissioner of Public
Works and the Commissioner of Public Utilities will cacli receive salaiies
of $3,i>00. Each department is clearly defined and each Commissioner is
responsible for its administration.

of tho occurrence. What money had

since Henncssy is dead and can't tell
ns how much was there.
"The queries arc: Who wss the police
man who came out of lhe store after
tho murder? Wns he one of our force?
If so, was be tho murderer? Hud be
adopted a policeman's uniform to en-
kble blm to escape detection? Is be
er has he been a policeman in another

"We bave uo time to lose, because
there Is a hope that we can get him

It we could work from it to Its owner,

going over the ground Just as If he wns

Ivditor Review.
Dear Sir:���I have read with interest some letters appearing in the
columns, of your paper re Local
One of your correspondents
would lead us to infer that depopulation and depression have followed
the introduction of no lisence laws
in Ontario. In this however he
bas been misinformed. I have
travelled across the province many
times and have always done better
in the non lisenced districts and
have found such sections invariably
prosperous and free from crime.
In regard to depopulation, this is
true of the rural and small village
portions of Old Ontario, but this
can not be laid at the door of Local
Option as both the lisence and 110-
lisence portions of the province
have' suffered alike. The larger
towns and cities are increasing in
population at a good rate.'irrespec-
ture of either Local Option or
Lisence control.
It is well to note that in the old
lands and eastern N. S. the rural
sections are losing a large percentage of population even though no
Local Option laws have ever been
in force in such places.
It was further intimated that
sports do not exist in non lisence
districts. Ofcourse this is purely
an error. Sports are prevalent and
keenly enjoyed in all parts of Ontario, temperate or intemperate, in
proportion to the number of the
inhabitants with the odds of clearer sport in favor of the non lisenced
or Local Option sections.
In regard to hotel accommodation
I prefer the hotel without a bar as

Editor Review.
Dear Sir:���I hope you may not
conclude that our guns have been
spiked or captured if there should
be some delay in replying to questions and statements of anti-prohibitionists. It is the policy of the
Local Option League to publish
only well authenticated facts and
figures, and oue cannot always do
this at a moment's notice. So I
would ask your readers to exercise
a little patience.
I beg to tell "Critic" that the
local option law is the best means
yet devised to enable any community to protect itself against the evils
of the liquor traffic. The principle
is not new and has beeu in force in
various parts of Canada since 1858,
and has proved very effective where
properly enforced. Different forms
of this law have been passed and
enforced, but a provincial local
option law seems to meet with the
most general favor.
The local option idea is based ou
"British fair play;" and so far as I
can ascertain, originated iu Great
Britain, and was brought into
British politics in 1864 by Sir
Wilfred Lawson. Mr. Gladstone
favored the idea aud John Bright
aud other prominent politicians
voted for it.
It does not pretend to close the
breweries and distilleries or stop
the importation of liquor, but only
gives the people of any town or
municipality the right to decide by
popular vote whether the sale of
liquor shall be allowed in the district. It is equally fair to both
As to the worship of Bacchus I
beg to say for the benefit of
"Critic" that I have read in a well
known book (NoSandy, not Burns)
that Bacchus is a mighty poor god
to serve and that the wages he
pays sooner or later are not desirable.

Insurance Company
The annual meeting of the Mutual
I''ire Insurance Company of British Columbia was held in tlie large board room
crowe _ Wilson chambers, Vancouver,
on Wednesday, Feb. 11, at 2 p. m.,
where there were present: A. C. Wells,
hon. president; Thomas Kidd, president; Captain W. F, Stewart,
vice president; .. R. Authier; James
Bailey; B. W, Carratt; W, J. Frederick;
Win. Ileaton; David McKee; J. Laity;
J. W, Miller, Jas, Thompson, Directors.
There was also a representative gathering of tlie Company's agents and members, Mr. A. C. Webster of Agassiz, was
appointed a director of the company.
The manager, Mr. Win. Townsley,
laid before tbe meeting, the balance
sheet and repor. of the company's auditors, Messrs. W. T. Stein _ Co. and
stated that the year had been a most
prosperous one iu every way.
During the year tbe company wrote
$1,647, J20.UU of insurance, and the tota 1
amount now ill force is J4,059,175.00.
The fire loss during tbe year has been
very light amounting to only $1740.00.
The company lias added over $9000,00 to
its cash reserve, which is now,, 5,617.92.
Jn addition to its cash reserve, the
company has collateral security to the
amount of $83,456,68; this is iu the form
of premium notes, each member giving
tlie company a note for 2 per cent of the
amount of his policy. These notes average $39.34 per member, aud this amount
with n small annual cash payment, constitutes the average total liability,
They can only be called upon pro rata
in case of necessity, aud such necessity
has never arisen. The company has now
beeu operating about twelve years, and
not a cent has ever been levied upon
any premium note.
At 7 o'clock the members held their
annual banquet at Spencer's restraunt.
The caterers had excelled themselves in
the repast they had prepared, and the
tables were beautifully decorated,
Speeches were delivered by a number of
those present, and a most enjoyable
evening was spent.
Mr, David Roy is the local agent.
Letter to the Editor
A Visit to Courtenay
Kditor Courtenay Review
Sir:���Hearing that a Liberal meeting
would take place in courtenay on Feb,
14th, I hied me thither. Imagine the
surprise, when one is accosted and told
that there is also a Conservative meeting, naturally one would enquire "what
i.s on "foot?" "O some people are not
satisfied with the old Association, so
they are forming a new Association.
One could scarcely get more mixed up
ones metaphors than Sir Richard Roche,
who said "he could smell a rat, he
could see it floating in the air, but mark
my word, I shall nip it in the bud," an
expression like Sir BOyl's, borders on
the idiotic, so will becontentin remarking that "Vou could have knocked me
down with a feather," on being told
that the Conservative meeting was an
invitation "affair." It no doubt will be
interesting to learn what name the new
Association has taken unto itself, I offer
tbe suggestion that they call it "The
Invitation Political Party," 3ontrast
this method with that of the Liberals,
who openly announce tlieir meeting tothe
public, they fear not that their platform
can stand whatever criticism may be
showered in a vain attempt to wreck
their ideal.
Would or could the three political
factious in Courtenay arrange a meeting
and let the .lectors hear the different
principles (if they have any) so that they
may be ill a position to intelligently cast
their vote when election rolls around.

"Willie yet a child I commenced using coffen am? continued it," writes a
Western man. "urtil I was a regular

as Nerviline," write; Mrs. 12. P. La-
montagno from her home near Wetas-
kawin, Alherta. "In this far-away
section, far uwny from a doctor or
druggist, every family needs a good
supply of linime.it. Nerv.line is the
best, of all. It destriyc every pain,
but never burns. Wo use Nerviline
li> a score ot ways. If it's rheumatism, aching hack, pain in the side, sciatica or stiff neck,���you can laugh at
them if you have lots of Nerviline
bandy. For earache, toothache or
cramps I don't think anything could
act more qulokly. For a general all-
round pain remedy I can think of nothing moro valuable and speedy to
euro than Nerviline."
Tlie above letter ls convincing���it
tells how reliable and trusty this old-
tlme remed;- is. Ne" ilino for forty
years has been l. household word in
Canada. Scarcely a home in Canada
you can find without Nerviline. Every
community has its jiving examples of
the wonderful curative properties of
Nerviline whicli will cure pains and
aches anywhere in lio joints or muscles. It's penetrating. soothing,
warming nnd safe for young and old
to.use. Get tlie large 50c. family Blze
bottle; It's the most economical. Small
trial size 25c. at any dealer's anywhere.

The young people of Comox got
up a playlet entitled "The Mischievous Nigger,"which they played to a full house on Friday evening. It was so thoroughly appreciated that they decided to put it
on in the Courtenay Opera House on
Monday evening, A fair audience
greeted them, and spent a. jolly even
ing laughing at the antics of f he min
strels. A Japanese drill also came
in for considerable applause. With
a little more training these artists
would give a good account of
themselves. The dance which
followed was well patronized, and a
splendid time was spent.
