aud Mr. Flemniing of Victoria paid

Department is figuring on sending
miners from this district to the Mer-

Messrs. Cooke & Matthewson
last week purchased two spring
lambs from a Jap rancher at Royston, one of which weighed 150 and
the other 140 pounds, paying over
$20 for them. This should con-
eiusively prove that there is money
in sheep, and it is a wonder that
more of our ranchers and fanners
in the valley do not go in for them
There is not half enough raised for
local consumption.
This week a letter has been received by Mrs. Laycock from Mrs
13. S. Fenn, whicli gives news of
our old friend, Mr. Fenn, organizer
of the Patriotic Service Committee
in this town. Mrs. Femi writes:
"My husband was taken on by the
British Red Cross to drive a motor
ambulance for an American unit
serving with the French. He is
very pleased that he is right up at
the front all the time, as he is not
attached to any particular hospital,
and so will serve with the French
army. Mr. Fenn received the
highest certificate he could get tor
motor driving and was highly commended by Ihe head of the Red
The Ladies' Aid bazaar last
Thursday afternoon and evening
was a decided success. A number
of booths presided over by a bevy
of handsome tadies, were filled with
useful and fancy artic.es, and they
all did a rushing trade. A biscuit
making demonstration was given
bv Mrs. Kirkwood, and it was interesting to ikten to the remarks
made by the onlookers One said
" No wonder tliey rise, 4 spoons-
full of powder !" Another, "that's
not enough shortening, it won't be
rich enough," "The idea ! sifting
flour three times and then ouce for
luck. How much time do you think
we have to bake iu." etc., etc. The
candle lighting table did a fine
business. Aid, Robertson spent
nearly half au hour trying to beat
D. Bubar's record of lighting 34
candles with one match. Tommy
Cairns i.s "some" milliner, winning
first prize in the bat trimming competition. .Miss Tucker's museum
had a lot of patrous. to each of
whom she gave a valuable receipe.
Return of Private Perrott
We understand that Mr. R Hyde
Perrott, who left early this year
for Europe with the 30th Battalion
and was later transferred to the
16th Battalion Canadian Scottish,
has reached Victoria with several
other wounded and disabled soldiers. Mr. Perrott was in tlie
fighting around Festubert, and received serious injuries as a result
of the bombardment by the Germans of a trench captuied by his
company. That he returns at all
is marvelous, having on that occa-
siog been buried for the greater
portion of twentyfour hours when
the trench was blown in, in addition to shrapnel wounds, while
later on the next tent to that in
which he lay wounded was blown
up in the course of a Zeppelin raid.
We bespeak a rousing welcome for
the first of our wounded to return,
as soon as he is permitted to visit
Courteuay. His injuries will keep
him from rejoining bis regiment
for some time, and we therefore
ask that others come forward to occupy the vacancies caused by his
and other soldiers' enforced withdrawal from the fighting line.
Private Perrott experienced the
awful results of the poisonous gas
emited by the German shells, which
while uoi as harmful as the o;her
variety, still makes itself felt for
some months.
A hearty welcome was given to
the wounded warriors at Victoria,

According to eminent authorities
there is no overproduction of logs
at present, in fact prices will rise
by next swrinfr, This should encourage the liandlogger nnd other
small operators. The Pacific Coast
h'gub'K industry is going to assume large proportions during the
next ten years, and there is plenty
of money to be made by those who
are gifted with vision anil foic-
In a recent issue we gave the
output of logs, butter and milk for
the previous month in order to
show our readers what was taking
place in tlieir midst. The Victoria
"Colonist" and Vancouver "Daily
Province" each reproduced the
paragraph with due acknowledgments lo the " Review." and thus
wider publicity was given to the
resources of the valley. We are
convinced that the valley has only
to be made mote widely known to
attract new settlers, especially those
frctn the prairie. After nil we
need plenty of new blcod to avoid
There is a large movement of
British Columbia potatoes to Australia, as well as to the prairie provinces, hundreds of tons having already been dispatched. Had the
farmers of the valley the enterprise
to dispose of their potatoes by
means of a co-opeiative agency,
which would guarantee the sacking and the grading of the tubers, a few thausand dollars
would h*ve ken realised. As
it is the surplus will be as usual
ploughed in ot fed to stock in many
cases, It is a thousand pities especially as the Government has commissioners whose dutv it i.s to sell
agricultural produce on the prairie.
Tlie blame for not availing themselves of this opening is with the
According to the Victoria "Daily
Colonist ' there are more Germans
under anus and drilling for war in
tiie States at the present time than
there are men in the ranks of the '
American standing army, Precise-1
ly, and the next thing will be a
series of German raids from American territory, on the principal vulnerable points in Canada, aud the
war will be brought home to our
very doors, wiih, in all probability

The success of the Canadian war
loan will be a nail in the coffin of
the enemy. Its failure will give
them new life and energy. The
success of the loan will bring the
end of the war nearer. It will alsc
raise Canada in the scale of nations
and enable her to secure better
terms in future when negotiating
with the United States. Another
result will undoubtedly be the planing of more war orders on this side
of the boundary instead of going to
the States. A loan raised in America is uot necessarily paid in cash
but as a nils in goods, which are
represented by orders placed with
American firms.
Oue result of increased production in this province is shown in
the heavy shipments of potatoes
and apples to Australia. The nec-

To Residents
and Property Owners
of "The Orchard"
l.ailirs ami Gciilli'ini'ii:
We have giint-il mir end, "Orchard
Street Lights nre to be installed at llie
most iiilvniiteous i oints as quickly as
the equipment can be obtained.
Now Hint the show is over nml the
curtain nlitut to be rung down on the
Inst net, it is only lair to give credit
Where credit is due, and 11 couple ill
paragraphs of censure where censure i.
certainly deserved.
The Courtenay Blectrlc Light, Hent &
Power Co., Limited are entitled to all
the thanks we can glvo llieui, and that
we will all certainly leel like giving
them, this winter. The reason for
thanks lo the Company may not appear
so obvious to you Oil the spur ot the
moment, as it will il yon slop lo lliink
thnt; liver since this company started
operating iu CourtenayJtliey hive been;
month by month, operating at a loss;
Hint tlie city council and the company
are at loggerheads regarding the nrani-
ing 'il n city franchise, some ol Hie Aldermen eyeu doin)1 llieir best to drive
out of Courtenay llie one and only tiling
this city has to he p��-ond ol, vi/., the
present electric light service; that it will
take two years before the "Orchard
Street Lights" pay lor the cost ol installation alone, during which lime il is
within the bounds ol possibility lhat the
lonipauy u ny be ordered oft our streets
entirely, yet even in view of tlle above
facts, and ouly because they were petitioned to do so by 95 per cent, of the
residents and property owners of lhe
orchard, they are giving us light1 even
though at a possible loss to themselves.
Onee again I say, let us one and all,
give theni all the credit that is due them
Credit is also due in large measure to
Aldermen Leighton and Robertson, both
of whom have consistently fought hard
in our interests on the electric light
Unrestricted censure is the portion we
have to mete out to Alderman Johnston,
for conduct in my opinion, and probably
yours, unworthy of an Alderman of
Courlenay. This man, Fellow Residents,
publicly stated in the open council meeting, that he would support a motion for
the city to pay for tlie electricity consumed by "Orchard Street Lights" providing the electric light company paid
for the installation of said lights. At
the council meeting last Monday evening, when the very motion as above, was
put berore the council for approval, who
was the one and only Alderman; out of
six, that did not support it, yea, even
denounced it. Alderman Johnston,
what faith can you put in an Alderman
who breaks his plighted word in this
Censure and not credit is due Alderman McKenzie, because he ignored and
even ridiculed, the two large petitions
sddressed to tlie council on the electric
street light question, by residents and
property owners of " The Orchard," his
own ward. In the same ratio as a member of Parliament is looked upon by his
constituents, to work in tlieir interests,
to l'sten to their requests, to use his best
efforts to obtain for his constituency all
the grants, improvements and favors
possible, so is an Alderm in, elected to
the city council from a certain portion of
the city, expected to use his best efforts
in favor of that portion. Did Alderman
McKenzie do his duty by "The Orchard'
wil Ml he ridiculed and condemned our
two petitions addressed to the city council for electric street lights? Did Alderman McKenzie consider that his personal, private opinion on the subject, whatever it might be, was of such paramount
importance, that il should outweigh the
expressed opinion of almost  every  resi
dent of "The Orchard." Notwithstanding the above' we uiu��t gram Aldenuru
McKenzie the credit that i- due him lor
seconding the motion before the council,
on Monday evening lost, but Pellow
Residents, bal Hn- ttlectric Light company refused, ridiculed ami coudeiiined
out petition, we wi uld have been ill a
sorry plight tins whiter,
