Cook  by Wire
Electricity provides the cleanest, the
most sanitary and the most hygenic
method of cooking
Tha Electric range closely parallels the wood or gas
range but excells either in flexibility of operation
With the Electric Range you cook
under ideal conditions because
Each cooking unit can be switched to high, medium or simmering heat and kept there as
long as needed
I) is the acme of cleanliness
Practically no heat escapes into the room
The air is not vitiated
There is no contamination of food
You save food values through the retention of the
essential salts and meat juices, on a six pound
roast the saving is nearly a pound
Ail-the latest standards of range construction are
used, including high oven, thermometer or
glass door, porcelain splashers
The fire risk is lessened because there are no open
flames
We will gladly give you information on rates and
electric ranges

Tiie monotony of trench existence
these days is broken by preparing for
raids and against them, Battalion
commanders work out schemes of
strategy which would have won them
lame in smaller wars. Fifty men or a
thousand may bo engaged in a raid.
It may be on a front of fifty yards or
11 thousand, lis object is to take as
many prisoners and kill and wound
as many of the enemy as possible in u
few minutes; and then to get hack to
their own trench. Tlie assaulters try
to hold rn, to the piece of trench they
have token, the guns are turned on
them, the bombers close uji on either
side, and machine guns and rifles
ure prepared to sweep tJio zone of
retirement.
An uncanny curiosity gives the soldiers incentive for the raids. Ordinarily they never see their enemy hidden in his burrows across ".No .Man

Editor Courtenny Review
Dear Sir;���In vour paper Inst
week in one of your editorials referring to tlie fire in the City of
Courtenay you stale "that the City
Council bus carefully side stepped
tlle water question lor nearly two
years although certain citizens have
been pegging: away getting estimates as to tiie probable cost of IniiiK-
ing water from Btown's river,"
Vou say a private company wishing
to in.tal 11 system and another section ol the citizens wishing lo iiislul
its own system, The Municipal
Ownership promoters say a Hydro
Electric system from Browns liver
can be installed for $50,000, while
practical builders here say it cannot.
It would be very interesting to
know who the "practical builders
lien-" are.
The private companv say thai 11
system of water can be install, d
from Millard's creek loi JS13 000 1 r
thereabouts,
The $13,000 which you quote to
insial the piivate system from Mil.
lards creek apparently is incorrect,
because Engineer Knewslubb's re
port of 1913 quotes $21,0(10 for 11
���ysteni from Millard's creek to
Courtenay, aud gives his opinion
that tlie surroundings of this source
.ire very objectionable und insaiii-
i.irv.
But you, Mr, Editor, sav in
either case there would not be snlV.-
cieut revenue from the City ol
Courtenay to pay operating expenses let alone paying dividends or
paying for the plant. You omit to
observe that we would have good
service of water and light wliicli is
a pressing necessity even although
there were no dividends by adopting the Brown River system
Tlie following   quotations from
practical constructing engineers to
instal a   water   and   light   svstem
from Browns river arc as follows: ���
The engineers   estimate   of   the
cost of a water   and  electric light
system combined is:
To instal a water  system   from
Browns river using a   14 inch
main and Including 3 miles ol
distributing  pipe   throughout
the city. $35,000
This would supply as well as a good water
system, sufficient power for au
electric plant, which, complete
with 3   miles   ol   distribution
throughout the city would be     $15,000
$50,000
This water system would provide
lor a population ol 20,000 people and power could be develop
ed at from 2 to 3 cents per Iv,
W. hour.
To raise this 50,000 the citv could
sell bonds to the amount of
about 52,632 dollars at 95 bearing 6 per cent interest payable
in 30 years.
The cost to the citv by means of a sinking
fund would be
Supposing 52,632 is borrowed at
6 per cent, the City would have
to pay interest on $52,632 at 6
per Cent per anum 3158.OU
To pay off 52.632 in 30 years a
vearly sinking fund would have
to be placed in the bank ol       1000,(10
The expense of operating would
be 3 men at 1,200 per year each 3600.1m
Depreciation and repairs on Investment annually of 50,000     1000.00
$!i, 758.0
To pay this off we would have

2nd 150 consumers of light at
1,50 per mouth or $18.Op,   per

To meet this sum would entail a

Mr, Editor, and fellow Ratepay-
payers, it is high time that lhe people in Courtenav would without
further delay compare the two propositions on llieir true merits. 1st
I., permit a private company to in

where Ihc water is polluted from the
insanitary surroundings and in any
event the limited supply vveuld not

2nd, Will the ratepayers exercise
sound judgment by deciding to instal a combined system of water and

be installed for $50,000 by the rate
pnyrs tuxes and save the future
annoyance of purchasing an unsuitable system installed by a private
company, in which case the city
will have to pay a handsome bonus
lidded to the original cost of installation.
Tllis is a question tlie ratepayers
should uive their careful uttenion
to iminediatiey,

In adopting tlie above resolution
the Vancouver Trades Council was
but following the .steps of the Ni-w
Westminster Trades and Labor

the following resolution:
"Resolved that this Con mil go

Member for Newcastle, on discus-
yon of tIn- Bill in lhe Mouse, when

while In- "would vote for Prohibition lliul would prohibit he would

The Act is also objectionable   to
trades unions inasmuch us many of
its clauses were declared lo  lie 1111-
li.ilisli and unfair,     ll was pointed
out thai clause   ag   provided   that
any person  could   tell a constable

tlie name of the informjr, the constable could  enter a man's   house,,
break into all   the   rooms,   closets, j

provisions were severely   criticised
by members of the   labor  councils
as absolutely opposed to the British
idea that "A man's house   is   Jjis

In taking   the   action   they did,
the councils   were  also   moved by
tile feeling that they   should   suppori the large body of workiugineli

that (iooo  persons   are   dependent

not include over 1200 employees of

would mean that these men   would

Many delegates who took part in,
the council discussions said that
tliey were Prohibitionists. They
stated however, that ihey were op-

plainly slated that tlieyddi not consider a vote against the Prohibition

Safety First
In "Farm and fireside" is an account, of tho simple method lhal
ought to be employed everywhere by
which a farmer saved his property:
"One pail of water standing at the
foot of a bidder leading to the haymow saved our barn," we. read.
"Lightning struck the barn, killing
two calves, then ran along to thc top
of the haymow. My husband grabbed
the pail and ran up the ladder in
time lo put out the lire, but if lie bad
hud to wait to draw Hint water it
would have been too late." So if full
protection is not possible, don't neglect, tu keep a few pails of water
handy,
If one be troubled with corns nnd
warts, be will find in Hollowoy's
Corn Cure an application that will
entirely relieve suffermir.

Destroyed by
About io o'clock on Friday night
the Courteuay Optra House was
discovered to lie on fire, licit
Whittle, tha manager, wiisjusti'lus
lug up, aud when turiiluiri out tlie
red lights at the rear heard a crackling noise which lis thought wns
tlie large water tank which supplies
tlie hotel runiiiiij- over, After put
ting out the lights he gsthered up
the films and was just u'>ihk out
the front dour when he heard the
cry "lire," Shortly afterwardathe
hell on the Presbyteiinu church
rang out ils wm uing,
A large crowd of citizens quickly
gathered, and everything possible
was carried out of Ihe Opera house
first, the picture machine and the
piano being saved, All the shops
on that side ot the street were
quickly emptied of their contents,
and had there been any d\ niunilo in
town Anderton's office might havi
been blown up and Marocchi's saved. The Cue quickly spread to all
tiie buildings on tlie south side ol
the street, and ihe heat soon set lire
to tlie Calhoun und McKean blocks
where the occupau'.s, assi.itecl by
many willing workers, were dialing the stores of goods. The R,.y-
al Hunk also caught about that time
ai:d a shot was put into it after
most of the furni'.ure had been taken out Il did not do any good
however,and tlie building burned
up, Wet blankets were held over
the corner of the Riverside hotel-
and water poured ou the roof by
willing workers, and the building
was saved, the only damage being
to tlle windows and the paint.
The Perez block on Isabel street
was the last to go. It caught from
the large shed back of the Calhoun
block. The water in the well un
der the "Review" office had by this
time been exhausted, and it was
impossible to save the block, In it
were Robinson's Cafe. Mrs. Halli
uav's private school, and the Review, with a large press room at
the rear.
The following are the sufferers
by the conflagration, and the estimated losses ;

000, insurance $5000. Fechuer's
block $5000, insuranc $3000 Fech

World, wliicli was stored upstairs. Some
goods belonging to Hugh Stewart were
also 111 this ollice. Marocchi's bakery
was totally destroyed. Joe Tillto was
the only occupant of tlie rooms upstairs
and it was owing to the forethought and
com age ol Miss Maude Creech that he
���vns wakened and got out. Tlle loss is
ilniiil $.luui) with JIOOO insurance. J. K
Johnston's confectionery store was also
in Ihis building and his loss is about
"lull, not Including a ton ol ice he hud
j.ist put ill that morning and which the
tire only melted a little over hall. Mar-
,'ochi's also had about 100 loads ol mill
wood piled ap on llle lot next to their
shop which made a hot lire and ignited
dipt. lleiidneU's ollice. which was soon
destroyed. Everything of value wus in
the sale but tbe Captain's fishing rod
.vhicli those who carried out the furni-
.ure somehow overlooked. The thick
underbrush here formed a screen which
saved the new city hall. The trees and
rence on the side of Isabel street also
.creened Dr. Millard's house which was
saved; bis garage got quite a singing
but the constant spraying oi water prevented its burning.
On the north side ol Union street the
sufferers are the Royal Hank, building

Bros., gents' furnishings, lost their fixtures and small quantity of stock, no insurance. P, McBryde's bakery loss

& Miittli.'wsoii, butchers, was also loudly destroyed, together with Mr. Pare/
pool room upstairs; the loss on the block
is .KjOOU, the pool room $1000, small In-
suriili.v; Cooke ,*.   Mallhewson's   loss is

pressroom containing stones, two presses
and paper cutter were destroyed, loss
exceeds $1000, n * insurauce.
The Orange Lodge had some regalia
in Loggie's store which was lost.
The origin of the fire is wrapped in
mystery. The theory of a faulty electrical connection is refuted by the fact that
the wires were dlscouiiected whin lhe
soldiers vacated the premises lasl march,
Boys hnve been in the luibli "I collecting
Up stairs and sim.king, and Ihu theory
that Ibis is how the I'm' originate I Is
strengthened by lhe facl lhal ti i oupje ol
