Parade To Be
Bigger Than in
Former Years
Many  Entries  Expected   From
Firms and Individuals
Judging by the number of individuals and Bocletles putting in decorated
automobiles nnd other vehicles In the
parade on the 24th, this year's e.ele-
bniion will surpass anything ever attempted In th history of Cumberland.
It Is no secret now that several of the
fraternal societies intend putting
their best efforts forward In an endeavor to capture the firsl prize. The
Cumberland Centre, St, John's Ambulance Association and tiie Hospital
Board are, we are led to believe, putting in decorated cars. If the local
merchants come through with their
vehicles decorated nndthe Courtenay
and Cumherland PJire Departments
enter their trucks, a real good display
should be witnessed, The grounds
committee met this week and report
all arrangements well iu hand, so that
there will be no hitch iu the proceedings after Ihe parade readies the Recreation ground.
The sports committee have added
several new items to the programme
and it goes without saying that competition in tlie open events will bo
most keen. A feature of the program
this year is the special four-mile open
race. It was at firsl thought that the.
race would .start on the ground, then   William   Douglas

In reply to the resolution sent to Victoria by the joint meeting of the Courtenay and Cumberland City Councils and Boards of Trade, with reference to
the development of the Ca.npbell River Power, Mr. A. T. Goward. Vice-Prest-
j dent of the British Columbia Railway for Vancouver Island, has submitted
a statement which we publish below.   The resolution in question, while not
| concerned with the particular company acquiring the rights, asked: (a), that
adequate protection be given on the question of power rates;  (b). that the
commencement and completion of the plant be guaranteed within a reasonable
time; and (c). most important of all, that no grant be made unless industries
were established in the region of the origin of the power.
Mr. Goward's statement ts as follows:
"It has been drawn to my attention "At the recent hearing before the i

The annual  meeting of thc Cour- ] greeting thc secretary on completing
teuay-Comox Board of Trade was held j his report.    The election of officers
on Friday night and was exceptionally well attended, many from Cumberland being present, on special invitation.
A resume of last year's activities
was given by the secretary, much
favorable comment from the meeting
resulted in P. L. Anderton being again
chosen president with C. S. Wood, secretary and tlie council of Messrs, Macintyre, Douglas, Kirk. Ball, Hurford,
Hughes, Pearse, McLeod, Wallis, Inglis iW. Rickson, Ha kin, Morrison,
Bool Macdonald and Dr. Moore.
The Upper Island School Sports
will be held In Cumberland this year,
the affair taking place on Friday, May
the 31st Instead of June the 3rd as
In former years. Many of the local
students have been training dllllgent-
ly for some considerable time and
confidently expect to figure largely
In the majority of the events. We
made an effort to glean the possible
number o fentries just before going
to press but as all entries are not In
yet, it was difficult for the secretary
to give anything like an accurate forecast. It is felt by the teachers of!
the various schools, however, that I
this year's entries will come up to
previous years and in that case, com-
1 petition will be most keen.

I peted  for include: i

"It  is essential,  and  we cannot
too  strongly emphasize  the  fact,   |
that  to get this additional  power
to Victoria at a low cost, we shall
have to secure and assist in building up  industries on  tbe way, to
use our power,  and at  the  same
time take care of any and all industrial expansion in  the northern section or the Island.   Having
thc electric power to sell, it is also
the Company's business  to secure
customers and encourage them by
every means in its power to locate
within its territory.'
"These quotations  from  the  Persi-
dent's statement make lt abundantly
clear that not only would lt be the intention of the Company to care adequately  for  local  Up-lsland  requirements, but that it must, of necessity,
do everything within its. power to encourage and foster the establishment
and  growth  of Industries  at  points
north of Victoria in order to make the
development  of  the  Campbell  River
water powers an economic possibility,
quite apart from the question of bringing power to Victoria and delivering
It to consumers at a reasonable and
attractive rate.
"Mr Murrin then went on to say:
'As to the actual bringing of new industries to use the power that will be
developed, I would like to say a word
about the new owners of the B. C.
Electric. Messrs. Nesbitt, Thomson &
Company and Sir Herbert Holt and
their associates are the largest owners
and operators of' public utilities in
Canada. They maintain among other
things an efficient Industrial develop-1
ment department in Montreal which
co-operates closely with a similar department recently established by the
B. C, Electric Railway Company In
British Columbia. The very definite
policy of the new owners is that when
a new water power ts entrusted to
them for development they do their I
utmost, financially and otherwise, to j
build up industries along their linesL[ ,,„. ^vlew, ,
I to use thc power so developed. ThlsL„ Mrs Balagno
j has been done in a very striking man- daughters and gr
ner In the east, and places that a few Rev*ew, ul0 nthe
j years ago were nothing but bush are | S(t||
now thriving communities.' Mr- Mur-' on(
riu concluded his address before the ;1(,,
1 Water Board with these words, 'In the KV.
! truest engineering and economic sense lVii
' ! we arc ready to develop this power and *.,.
to develop it In such a way that it can j
be to the best advantage of the dis- t,.r
tricts served.' nt,-,

All the aldermen, with tlie exception of alderman Henderson were present at the Council meeting on Monday night when the by-law to provide
for the purchase of the fumberland
Electric Lighting Company was introduced. The by-law passed its first,
second and tli ird readings and it was

to hold a public meeting fn the Ilo-
Ilo hall on Tuesday, June the 4th,
when the rate-payers will have an opportunity of hearing the aldermen
speak on the subject. The bye-law la
published in another column of this
issue and ihe council went on record
as favoring the mailing to all ratepayers a copy of the bye-law. City
Clerk Cope was appointed returning
officer on the polling day aud the
place ot the poll will be tho City Hall.
Other business transacted included
the receiving of reports from the various committees. Alderman Williams
on behalf of (he health committee re-
ported thai six new eases of mumps

and on behalf of (lie board of works
reported considerable work done to
the city streets und lanes. The following communication was received
from Mr. R. J. Filberg of the Comox

IT IS probably correct to say that one cannot
get a proper background for Empire Shopping
week in Canada withutit paying considerable
attention to the fact that general conditions in
Canada over a lung period are more stable and
sound than in many other countries, largely due
to the fact that many of her people are of British
Stock, or are strongly affected by British traditions, deepened and improved by long residence
in Canada perhaps, in cases, for three or more
No excuse is needed by any Canadians for holding strongly to the view that the type of civilization and its promise of development as shown in
countries of the Hritish Empire is one that Canadians desire to encourage. It is simply a natural
and right'thing for a Canadian or any other Hritish citizen to do.
Itis suggested occasionally that an attitude ol
this sort may in some way offend the susceptibilities of oni' great friends and neighbors to the
South. How can it when they to a great extent
share the same traditions modified by North American spaciousness and freedom which Canada
shares with them, but modified too by many elements which the most loyal citizens of the United
States themselves would say do not tend to raise
the average of their civilization. Does that not
make it all the more desirable for those who respect Canada to see that her more purely Hritish
and Canadian civilization is maintaned?
Then, in purely trade matter, we all recognize
that there must be very extensive business transactions between Canada and the United States.
Many things, because of convenience, because of
cheapness, because of amplitude of supply, will
always find their way back and forward across
the border.
Certainly no attempt is being made to upset
economic laws.
No country is more strongly seized of the idea
of protecting its own industries and encouraging
the purchase of goods made at home than is the
United States. However, the people of British
Countries   throughout   the   Empire   practically
without exception because of their intimate political association with one another and because
of the frendliness and feeling of kinship arising
out of that association of interest, exert a preference for goods produced or made in their own
country und in other parts of the Empire.
That makes Empire Shopping Week in Canada
come right into line with the public feeling
throughout the Empire. Canada is part of the
Empire. She likes to be. She can benefit as
greatly from the operations of Empire Shopping
Week in Canada as her people or any other people
engaged in producing goods in Canada and the
rest of the Empire care to do without trespassing one iota on good taste or injuring the good
relations existing in any part of the world. We
are simply exercising a natural right in a natural
The pupils in many schools in Canada are going
to be told today something about Empire Shopping week in Canada. The purpose of Empire
Shopping Week in Canada is to bring to everybody's attention during the Week of 25th May to
June 1st and before and after, all of the various
products that are made in Great Britain, Canada,
and other parts of the Empire and some of the
underlying motives relative to trade. When the
Empire Shopping Week comes along and the pro-
duets of various countries of the Empire are displayed in the stores, they will show something
about them and will have special occasion to see
how much is made in their own country, Canada.

HOW long cun ihe public be fooled into believing in

There Is not much spread between the faked testimonial
and tlie bought and paid for testimonial. Testimonial advertising is losing out because it is being abused. The
question is now seriously raised as to wether or not advertising now needs a code of ethics that will prevent
the ubuse of time-honored methods of Helling through the
printed word. Honest testimonials, sincerely expressed,
form the most effective basis for an advertising campaign,
but even honest testimonial advertising will not he able
Lo convince people if they lose any faith they ever had in
testimonial advertising simply because this form of publicity is dishonestly used or improperly abused.
