.. $500.001 tjbj five-a-side football, contest,
which always has been a great attraction, and the quoltlng events, ar„> also
creating great Interest. Cumberland
F. C. are expected to be on hand to
defend the challenge trophy for tbe
former which they won last year,
while John Anderson Is practising
day and night to retain the quoltin?
The usual cycling events (handicaps) have been retained on the programme, this always being a favorite
with the sporting public; while the
Royal Canadian Mounted Police have
again consented to give one of their
spectacular exhibitions of horsemanship. .   , 	
The various committees are work-
hard to keep up the reputation of the
pioneer society, by presenting to the
public of Vancouver and neighboring
cities the llnest sports meet on tho
Pacific Coast; aud all are convinced
that only weather conditions can keep
them from accomplishing this end.
The games headquarters are located
at 122 Hastings Street West, where
any information will be gladly given
or entries received by A. G. Dickson,
the games secretary.
As the time draws near for the fifth
annual picnic of the employees of the
Canadian Collieries (D) Ltd., interest
grows apace. Athletes and teams are
practising for the events, and even
the small kiddies may be seen doing
stunts, which while not according ti
Hoyle, show the great enthusiasm
which the youngsters are displaying.
Arrangements down at the field at
Royston are also being rushed to com
pletion, a number of men working
there during this last week erecting
lhe necessary platforms, stands, etc.
We understand the general plan of
the picnic grounds will be as iu previous years.       •
The programme of sports, which is
printed on page three, shows fifty-
eight events to be down for decision,
and owing to tho lengthy programme,
the contestants in each event are particularly requested to be Bharp onj
time at the starting line.
First Aid Contests
Probably most interest will centre
round the first aid contest.
This is always a feature of popular
interest, but this year greater inter
est than ever will be shown owing to
the fact that a ladies' first aid contest
will be staged, tor which valuable
prizes will he given, $50 for the team
getting lirst place and $25 for the
team coming' second.
JGrand ItalTle
A large number of valuable prizes
have been received for the grand
raffle, whicli takes place immediately
on conclusion of the sports. Winning
numbers will be published in the
Islander and all prizes not claimed
by August 5 will be sent to Ladysmlth
for the grand raffle in connection
with their picnic. A list of the numbers of the unclaimed prizes, if any,
will be posted at Ihe mines and also
at tho C.L. and A.A. building.
Mreliug Sunday Horning
A meeting of the committee iu
charge of the Picnic will be held in
the lecture hall of the Cumberland
Literary and Athletic Association on
Sunday morning, July 23, at 10.30. A
full attendance is most earnestly desired as business of Importance will
be discussed.
Cumberland 25 Years Ago
Five members of the Cumberland
United football team intend going to
Vanvouver on Friday next to compete
for the championship of B.C., at the
Caledonian sports to be held at Has
tings Park, on Saturday, July 20. The

3raham, violin, J. Walker, violin, F.
Potter, cornet, and Alt Pilling, trombone, Intend giving their initial dance
iii the llo-Ilo hall on Friday evening
next, July 28. Tills aggregation of
first-class musicians have been practising for some considerable time and
are reputed to be the equal of any
orchestra ever heard In Cumberland.
It Is to be hoped that all lovers of
dancing to good music will take advantage of the Initial dance ot this
orchestra. It Is the intention of the
new orchestra to give a series of
dances and confidently look forward
to a share of the public patronage.
An Important Island league baseball
game will take place on the local
grounds, when the strong Chemainus
nine try conclusions with tho Cumberland seniors. The game is scheduled
for 1.30 p.m. Sunday, and as Manager
Conti reports all players in Al shape
a good game is anticipated. Ciiemainus stopped the victorious run of
the Nanaimo team on Sunday last in
one of the best and snappiest ball
games played this season.

The Reward of Service
In bis 11 rat report to the members
of the Tuberculosis Veterans' Association, Mr. E. S. Keeling, the Dominion
Secretary-Treasurer, mado the following statement concerning the relationship between the Great War Veterans Association of Canada and the
Tuberculosis Veterans' Association.
"It Is a pleasure to express my feelings of gratification at the splendid
work done for the ex-soldier by the
G.W.V.A., and I feel that it would 111
become me to let this opportunity slip
of paying tlu highest possible tribute
to their great kindness and co-operation. I deal with all the tuberculosis
cases submitted to tho O.W.V.A., but
I unhesitatingly ascribe much ot the
success that I have hitherto been able
to report, to the kindly co-operation
and advice from the various Under-
Secretaries of the adjustment department of that Association. It is lndcel
a pleasure to ask any ot these various
men to help me, either with advice or
with repesentations on our behalf to
any of the Departments. I feel tbat
the move we made in co-oporatlng
with the G.W.V.A. is the most wise
one wo possibly could havo done, as '
I realize that tlielr help Is absolutely
invaluable and I fail to soe where another association could give ub the
same assistance If they had wished
to do so.
"In looking over tlio files of the
G.W.V.A. I Und that they have always
given lhe case of the tuberculosis
veteran u very keen appreciation and
have done their utmost to forward bis
caUBO, anil I have pleasure, therefore,
in going on record and putting for-
.ward for your consideration my gralc-
t'ul, respectful appreciation of the "

ever, the government gained strength
and the last division showed a majority of 125 where earlier in the session
it had fallen as low as 15. Perhaps
the Government was somewhat helped
by the conviction lit Id by both Con
ervatives and Progressives that in a
general election the Liberals would
win seats from both of them.
Progressives Lose Control
"I believe the Progressives have
reached the peak of their strength and
unless there is a material change in
heir policies they are liable to lose
support in British Columbia and On
tario and remain only as a sectional
,'roup devoted solely to the interests
of the three pralile provinces. Their
Intense advocacy of absolutely free
trade alienated the sympathies ot the
British Columbia and Ontario mem
bers of their party, and their action
in voting for the free Importation and
encouragement of oleomargarine
created a breach between them and
.he dairy farmers of Quebec and the
maritime province which will be hard
to heal.
Same Old Fart)  Stuff
"There was the usual playing for
party advantage rather than for thi
■jenefit of province or country. It
leerned to me that the British Columbia Conservative members on several
occasions voted against the best in-
erests of their province merely in
irder to embarrass the Government
while the British Columbia Progressives and the Independent (myself)
voted with more provincial regard.
"Mr. Meighen as leader of the Opposition proved an extremely able and
merciless critic In debate but he never
rose beyond attacking the Government, just because it was the Government and at no time did he enunciate policies of a constructive character.
Government Relaxes
"While I supported the Government
in nearly every vote during the session in preference to the free trade
and sectional position of the Progressives on the one hand or the Conservatives on the other, whose sole poll
cy seemed to be a high tariff for the
benefit ot the Eastern manufacturer,
yet in speaking on the budget I stated
very plainly and emphatically that
there were a number ot points on
which British Columbia seemed to be
obtaining scant consideration from
the Government. I sm pleased to be
able to record that on a number ot
these points the Government has
since taken steps to remedy the
grievances I then complained of. For
instance, at that time, the anti-dumping clause against American products
such as fruit, potatoes, etc., coming
into British Columbia had been repealed, but later it was re-enacted in
another and much more effective
"While the House had voted In favor of free importation of oleomargarine representations made by the
dairying interests of British Columbia
and elsewhere justified the Government in extending the right to import
for only another year. This will afford opportunity at the next session

M lotion for Skm Disease
Bold by B. E. FBOST
Owing to the prolonged dry weather we find that it in necessary to restrict the use of
water, as it' we allow the present enormous consumption to continue the town may, in the event
of no rainfall for the next two months, be faced  with a water famine.
In VOUR interests and for the protection of YOUR property in the event of a fire, we
find it necessary to bring into effect immediately the following regulations:—
(1). Water must not be used for sprinkling or irrigating purposes except—FOR ONE
HOUR ONLY—from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.
(21. The practice of using water for the purpose of watering sidewalks, streets, etc.,
must ceas". Persons using water for these purposes are liable to have their services disconnected tin i 1 such time as we can install a meter on their supply.
(3). Leaking taps, toilets, pipes, fittings, etc., must immediately be brought into good
repair as any premises on which water is found wasting from these causes will be disconnected
without further notice.
There is absolutely no desire on the part of this Company to curtail the use of
water when same is used in a proper manner for domestic purposes, but in a large number of
cases we find this privilege being abused and should the abuse continue we shall be forced to consider the installation of water meters, which would make the cost of water much heavier for the
same consumption.
We once more draw to your attention the fact that this is being done in YOUR
interests as every leaking tap or pipe or sprinkler used unnecessarily lowers the water pressure
and consumes water that may be needed in a few weeks more for household purposes or may be
needed TODAY to extinguish a fire on YOUR property.
Thanking you in anticipation of  your co-operation in this matter, we are,
Yours truly,
Managing Director,
importation and sale so that It cannot

as would prevent it being palmed off

use for what It really Is a lard and oil
compound for cooking experiences.
Benefits Fishermen
"The fishing industry has been assisted by the reduction of the duty on
listillate and gasoline from 2V» cents
to 1 cent per gallon. As lirst Introduced this applied only to gasoline
which would only have helped the Atlantic fishermen, but owing to representations made by myself it was corrected to apply also to distillate
which must eventually reduce tho
price to fishermen.
Lumber Hate Reduction*
"The lumber industry has obtained
some reductions in railway rates,
which also applies to a number of
other articles. The two British Col
umbla Progressives and myself supported the Government in referring
the Crow's Nest railway agreement to
a special committee while the British
Columbia Conservative members
voted against it. Had this not been
done the agreement would have gone
Into effect automatically on July 7th
under which further reductions would
have been made on freight shipped on
to the prairies from the east, but no
reductions on lumber or any other
products shipped from British Columbia.
Eight-Hour Day Failure
The Government has not acted satisfactorily with regard to the question
of an eight-hour law declaring it to
be a matter for Provincial not Dominion legislation, and while a resolution favoring old age pensions was
allowed to pass tbe necessary legislation was not introduced.
Time on Oriental Question
"On the Oriental question the Government amended the wording of our
resolution, which called for total exclusion, to effective restriction claiming it was more likely to facilitate
friendly arrangements with the Oriental nations. While preferring the
more drastic words we must give the
government a reasonable time in
which to show what can be done by
legotlations. I strongly Impressed
upon both the House and the Government that no exclusion either by law
or arrangement would be effective
unless accompanied by a rigid system
of registration of those in the country
as it is of little use to stop their legal
entry If allowed to come in by underground channels as is suspected to be
■he case at present.
West Coast. Japanese
"Another matter of interest to this
llstrlct was the success attending my
'fforts in having a 33 per cent reduc-
.ion of licenses issued to Japanese
trollers. There was no desire on my
part to do an Injustice to anyone,
hence the gradual reduction proposed.
"I am pleased to find that the
prompt and decisive action of Major
Motherwell has resulted in this regu-
'atlon being enforced, while there
nay be room for enquiry as to why It
.vas necessary for him to take per-
lonal action.
Unpopular But Necesriary
"The present financial condition o(
Canada Is deplorable. The difference
between revenue and expenditure last
year was over one hundred million
dollars of which between sixty and
icventy per cent was due to our National railways. The government ha3
made a vigorous attempt to bring expenditure and income nearer each
other. This required further taxation
which is always unpopular and a still
more unpopular cutting down of public expenditures, but the government
must be approved for courage in attempting such necessary reforms and
It becomes us all to back the Government up nnd even to be satisfied with
a less convenient government service
where the records show the expenditure Is out of all proportion to the
benefits derived.
"Regarding the question of so much
Importance to your local mines, the
Import duty on fuel oil, I was successful ln preventing a reduction on this
duty but was not able to secure any
ncrease. Of some 60 or 60 changes
in the tariff, all but one (on cigars)

R. W. Dunsmuir, son of a former
Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia and Mrs. James Dunsmuir, ol
Hatley Park, Victoria, has signed a
contract with tbe Peruvian Government, and a syndicate is now negotiating financial details with New York
bankers for a railway in Northern
The 2,400 miles of railroad to be
constructed by Mr. Dunsmuir will
cost at least $120,000,000.
The concessipn includes land
grants amounting to 50,000,000 acres,
surface rights in perpetuity aud oil
and mineral rights for 33 years.
Terms of the concession involve
immediate payment to the Peruvian
Government of about $5,000,000. Tills
payment is to enable the Peruvian
Government to free tbe tobacco
monopoly from n first charge, and to
hand over this monopoly, together
with 168 miles of railroads already
completed, or under construction to
Mr. Dunsmuir, who will be empew-
ered to collect the tobacco monopoly
and to uso the proceeds for guaranteeing interest on bonds to be issued
to provide the necessary funds for
the operation of the concession.
The tobacco monopoly yielded last
year £903,57$ Assuming u future
yield of $3,375,000 and assuming that
the sinking funds will be suspended
for ten yenrs, it is estimated that Mr.
Dunsmuir will he able to pay Interest
at 7 per cent on $48,000,000 from
tobacco monopoly alone. It Is considered likely thai he will raise this
amount of money by bond Issue In
New York.

LONDON.—Alan Nicholas, a blind
and armless ex-soldier, was brought
to trial for driving an automobile.
The evidence proved that he drove
frequently through the crowded
streetB, with his chsffeur at his side,
responding to nudges as signals when
to stop and when the road was clear.
He has had a pair of artificial arms
since being maimed in the war, but
manipulates them with the facility ot
ordinary person.
He testified that he could write,
typewrite, dress and undress, tell
time by his watch and drive a car as
safely as anybody. The Judge was so
fascinated by his story of conquering
blindness that he called him a "superman," and discharged him on condition that lie would not drive again.

Her Bare Back
Like many prltanical reformers
many envious or afflicted sisters, anil
a tew woman haters, a certain parson
recently declared that he was shocked
by the brevity of the dresses worn by
New York society women.
"Why," he splutters in conventional
Indignation, "at some receptions I
could count every vertebra from the
waist up! I was shocked!" Which
goes to prove that the parson is a
close observer of certain things and
an adept at anatomical arithmetic.
Why Is it that the bare shoulders,
back and arms of even the best of
women give a certain class of men unholy jimmies every time they see them
exposed? If they can't think decently
about such things why don't they
emulate St. Anthony und break for
tho woods, where the "devil-women"
can" undo them?

Rediscovering America
Another of Evadne Price's stories
concerns a dinner given by a number
of British naval officers to a crowd ot
American sailormen. After dinner
were the usual complimentary
speeches", until an American, who had
been experimenting rather too extensively with the wine list, got on his
legs, and, after informing the company that America had won the last
war, etc., etc., began to discuss the
possibilities of the next, which, ac
cording to him, would undoubtedly
be between the U.S.A. and Great Bri
"And I'll tell you this," he exploded.
"Within three days we'll have the
whole or anyway'the best part of your
great Royal Navy bottled up ln New
Vork Harbor."
"No doubt," quietly interposed a
British sailorman. "If such a war
should happen-I don't believe It will
and 1 hate to think it could happen-
no doubt you will have all our Heet
oottled up in New York harbor within
three days. But 1 aBsure you that
at the end of the third day It will
lake a far smarter man than Christopher Columbus to discover America."

Nanaimo Fail In Quest For
Dominion Football Honors
Hillhurst, of Calrgary, will represent Alberta and British Columbia in
the next round of the Connaught Cup
by defeating Nanaimo in a two game
serries, which was played in Calgary
with total goals of both games to
count. The dual score was Calgary
4, Nanaimo 3.
Saturday's (!iiini>
^ After being one goal down in the
game and two goals behind in the
series, during the first live minutes,
Hillhurst staged a rally that enabled
them to equal the score 1-1 ot half-
time, and in less than one minute after they hod returned to tho field for
the second half, they had the rounds
oven, and from then on put up such
n dazzling display ot team-work, that
they were awarded with the goal that
gave them the series and the right to
travel east in quest ot the Dominion
Although the Westerners assumed
the offensive at the commencement,
the combination and all round excellent play of tho Calgariana gradually
wore them down.
It looked nil over for Hillhurst,
■when Dickinson took a cross from
Husband, and his beautiful drive beat
Wilson in the first live minutes of
play. This gave Nanaimo a two-goal
lead In the series. Deluce scored for
Calgary before half-time.
With the wind In their favor In the
second half, Hillhurst opened up a
strong attack at the commencement
and In less than a   minute   had as-
1 sumed the lead in the game, and the.
scries tied, as Wakelyn, by a clever
run and shot, placed the ball Into the
top corner of the net beyond Hughes.
Cartwrlght thrilled the crowd by a
wonderful display of footwork. He
tricked three of the opposing side,
and sent In a shot which completely
baffled Hughes. This goal gave Hillhurst the lead in the. series, and they
maintained their advantage to tho
Friday's Hume
It was a hard fought contest and
so gruelling at times that there were
numerous casualties. In fact, Hillhurst really played nine men to their
opponents' eleven during the last half.
Play had been under way less than
two minutes when Nanaimo * had. a
goal. Dickinson crossed beautlfullv
to Husband und liis shot was accurate
and true, giving Wlilson no chance.
The second goal of the gamo went
lo Hillhurst after ten minutes play.
It was a very soft goal and really a
gift of the Nanaimo goalkeeper,..who,
In clearing, let the ball drop and De-
luce kicked it into tlle net.
Forty minutes of the second half
elapsed before Stobbart cleverly headed past Wilson from Wowler's crosi.
Stobbart missed a penalty in the
ilrst half. Deluce also missed an easy
chance when he only hit the net.
The Japanese ball team still further
tightened their hold In the Intermediate league, when they defeated
Union Bay 5-4. It was one one of the
typical ball games that have been witnessed at the Bay this year. A close
game with an exciting finish, the home
club chasing three runs, across the
pan in the last inning, but their rally
foiled to bring ln one more run, which
would have tied the score.
Hojo was-on the mound tor the
Nipponese and pitched liis usual consistent game, striking out 12 men.
Anderson, who has returned from
Campbell River, did the twirling for
the clam-diggers. He was given about
as much support as a bootlegger
would receive at n temperance meeting and his team mates chucked the
game away for him.

At tliat moment, as he moved, like
a man half stunned, towards the
stairs, supported by two stalwart
warders watchful for any sign of revolt, that Inflamed countenance wus a
thing terrible indeed. For upon its
massive features were stamped un
nameable thing.; — venom, hatred,
chagrin, mortification, ferocity—:Mty-
thing, Indeed, save remorse or shame.
That lirst downward step towards
ilic cells and the awaiting prison-
house seemed both epitome and symbol of his strange and wayward life.
As he plunged downwards, his
great frame willed, shrunk; and witn
the physical-came the moral collapse.
That marvellous self-control, preserved by a preternatural will-power.
snapped like a tortured steel cable as
the words of the judge passing sentence Mashed the air.
Bottomley floundered out of sight
as unwieldy, tottering bulk supported
by the hated arms of those whom ho
has so long derided, so long defied—
the oiiicers of the law.
So he disappeared from tlio stage
whereon he had fought the last and
most frantic of his battles to escape
the steel clutches of Justice, which
for so long hud been inexorably
tightening around him.

Here in prison is the man who in

and activity of this extraordinary
"So confident was Bottomley that
no jury would convict him," his solicitor told the present writer, "that hie
fully expected to make a dramatic
appearance in the House of Commons
afterwards. He said as much, and no
one could shake him from the belief,
which amounted to delusion, that ho
would triumph again as he had done
so often before.
"He made absolutely no preparation
against tho turn of events which was
so obvious to all but himself. He
felt the strain of the protracted proceedings, but he believed in his star,
and when, in' his address to the jury,
he said that it was unthinkable that
they would convict, he undoubtedly
meant It."
At "The Dicker"
During the early stages of the
clrminal proceedings, when frenzied
efforts were being made by accountants to arrive at some sort of order
from the general confusion of the affairs of the Bond Clubs, Bottomley
brought a statement of accounts to a
gentleman engaged professionally
upon this hopeless task.
I give the story as It was told me
by the gentleman in question, in his
London office, recently.
"Bottomley came in with the most
awful muddle of figures I had ever
"It is impossible to make anything
of these, Mr. Bottomley," I said.
"Well, come over to'Paris and go
into the matter there with my man,"
suggested  Bottomley.
This suggestion was turned down,
but a meeting was arranged for to
take place at The Dicker, tlle beautiful country place iu the name of Mrs.
Bottomley—a fact stated baldly upon
a board.
"Bottomley took us up to his great
study, a most sumptuous room full of
beautiful things. A great fire was
burning in the open fireplace. He
ordered champagne to be brought up;
but I said:
"Mr. Bottomley, I have como down
here to help you with these accounts:
not to drink champagne."
"Well, then, you fellows go into
them; I don't understand them; but
what you say goes nil right witli me."
Ho thereupon went down to the
stables to see Ills horses fed, baring

I declined. Presently, however, it

study, dropped heavily Into a dceo

was caressing them, Presently he
"Aren't Ihey nice? You see they
love me; but then they know nothing

Last Tuesday Airs. M. E. Petty was
charged before Magistrate John Baird
with having received stolen jewelry,
the property ol Miss Gwilt, ot Punt
It wns conclusively proven at the
hearing that the jewelry, which was
3f little value, hud been found by Mr,
Petty ln a mackinaw shirt, which he
purchased  last November from  Miss
3wllt.    The prosecution    endeavored
;0 show that the Jewelry    had    been
itolen trom Miss Gwllt's    house    on
December 25 last, but this was com-
liletely    rebutted    by    overwhelming
liroof that It had    been    found    six
jveeks prior to December 21), on which
llate it was claimed Miss Owilts house
|vas robbed.
It transpired at the hearing that
lielther Mr. nor Mrs. Petty had made
liny effort to conceal the fact of the
llnding of the jewelry, In fact had
mentioned the matter to a consider-
lible number of people residing both
|n Cumberland and Bevan.
After .. hearing lasting from 10.30
,.m   to *.ZQ p.m., the magistrate dls-
nlss>'d the charge expressing himself
jonvlncod that neither    Mr.    nor
ftrr   I'll;     as in any way to blame,
