The story told to the court was
that on Sunday night, June 30. the

children in the house. Nelson it
seemed, had stayed at the house lie-
fore, nnd was on good terms with the
girl.      During   the   absence   of   her
mother and aunt, the girl alleged her
uncle took advantage of her. She
was afraid of what.her mother mlghl
say the next day. and so left a note
und run away. She was found some
hours Inter when the whole storv
came out. The mother refused admission to Nelson nu the Wednesday
night and he left a note on the ver-
andali stilting that the girl was responsible for what had happened,
Tbe defence was that the girls had
provoked Nelson, and that whatever
had happened hail been with her consent.
The jury retired at 2 o'clock to consider its verdict, and returned in lu
minutes with a verdict of guilty of
carnal knowledge of a girl between
the ages of 14 to l(i years. His Lordship reserving sentence until the end

The Anglican Church Hall was the
scene of a most enjoyable Whist
Drive and nance on Tuesday even- j
lug, being the first of a series to bc I
held every month throughout the
winter by the Cumherland Tennis
Club. lt wns a terrible night to he
out In hut, in spite of this, a surprising lnrge crowd of members and
friends of the club from all over the
district were present.
Wliist was indulged In from Ull.
to 1(1:00 o'clock, with eleven tables
playing. Mrs. T. Mordy and Mrs. F.
Slaughter were the winners respectively of the ladies' first and consolation prizes while L. R. Stevens anil

rcfrcsBments were served during the
evening.
Word was received Friday morning
thnt Cumberland United's game with
the Nanaimo Davenports will not
come off this Sunday and is consequently postponed until the end of the
schedule. The reason is tills: Owing to the boxing tournament being
held today on the eCntlra—J—JJJ
held (odny on the Central Sports
Ground, Nanaimo and Ladysmith are
forced to play on Sunday instead of
Saturday as previously arranged. Aa
it would not be good policy (as far as
the gate receipts are concerned) to
play two games on the same ground
in tiie same dny, one of them had to
be postponed and the lot- fell to the
Cumberland and  Davenport  match.
Rangers hnve a home game this

special Hallowe'en Dance. This year

The members of this social committee rend with a great deal of disappointment that the local Moose Lodge
have now decided to hold a Monster
Carnival Dance on the same night.
consequently, owing to the Moose
Lodge holding their affair on Hallowe'en, the Social Committee of the
Anglican Hall have been forced to
change their dote and will hold their
annual celebration on October 28th,
when it is hoped all friends will make
an effort to be present nnd enter Into
the spirit of Hallowe'en, although It
will he a few days In advance. Tickets are now on sale, and it is announced as a Fancy Dress Dance.
Although Fancy Dress is optional, it
is rumored that quite a largo number of the younger people are going
to dress up for this occasion. A feature of the dance will he the extra
special delightful refreshments which
will be served during the Interval.
Decorations thoroughly in keeping
with the- auspicious date, when black
cuts, hobgoblins and elves are wont
to roam, will exhance the spectacular effect and the spirit of Hallowe'en

Ball, Ilo-llo, .Monday, Nov. 10.        42.
At the Tuesday night meeting of the
Courtonay Beard of Trade, P. P. Harrison,   M.P.P.,  was   Invited   as  guest
I and asked to give a lew remarks on
J things in general and also to speak
: on the main  pollc :2s he intended to
adopt (luring the coming Legislature.
Mr. Harrison replied that the thing
] he wanted to push  more than anything else was lhc great need of good
! roads in this part of the Island, especially the main trunk nnd second-
I nry roads.     These were pointed out
j as essentials in thc opening up and
I development of the upper pnrt of the
! Island.      He  had  blocked  out  with
the government engineer the estlmst-
I ed  cost  of improvement  and  it had
come to around $117,000,00 In nil.
Mr. Harrison said that it was his
ambition to get this amount of money
put through the House ns this part-of
I the Island was getting to be the main
j end of the stick. He had promised
to help tiie people of the Sayward
District and the roads in that part.
It was pointed out that with a good
road into that territory it would benefit the Comox Valley In the matter or
trade that Is now curried on by way
of Vacouver by steamer.
Thc speaker drew attention to the
fact that a movement was under way
In Victoria to get the Island Highway
cemented up to Campbell River. As
ills interests were here in this district, he would try" and get the work
started here and go south instead of
the other way. T|)ere are splendid
roads around Victoria and in comparison with the revenue earned in this
dlstriil and thnt of Victoria, we have
a right to expect better roads here
than we have.
A number of questions were asked
Mr. Harrison in connection with what
amount he would spend on other roads
ln the district; new roads, such as the
lnteded Lazo Road via Sandwlck and
the Alberni Road via Comox Lake.
The speaker replied that he thought
the hc.t policy would be to have the
bulk of the money spend on primary
and secondary roads, get them surfaced with oil and gradually work on
the others as it would he impossible
to muke any promises for tlle 40i)
miles of roads that are not the main
roads of the district. Good truns
roads are the main Item, the others to
follow in time.
In reference to new roads, he hud
not heard of the intended Lazo Road
to cut down the distance
tn that district that Is now
readied by way of Coniox. As to tin.
Alberni road via Comox Lake aud
Ferry, he was very much in favor and
sold It could he carried through wilh
very little expense in comparison
to what one would Imagine ns there
Is only a stretch of some 20 miles at
the Alberni end of the Comox Lake to
lie put through aud very little grading

To hnve fully seventy per-cenl of
lhe play and yet only secure a draw
wan the fate which thc lady of that
name chose to lavish on Cumberland
United iu their Upper Island League
match with Nanaimo City on the Recreation Qround here last Sunday. One
goal each was the result and the lower Island team was extremely fortunate in having It so, for tbe one that
they managed to grab was practically
handed to them as the result of pure
'bonehead* play on the part of the
local goalie. Yes, verily, Blair must
have left his football brains at home
that day.
Three minutes after the start of the
first half Graham found himself in the
visitor's IS yard line with the ball at
his toe. Already the fans were getting ready to cheer him for the inevitable goal which would make
things look pretty rosy for Cumberland, nut something happened.
Graham shot alright, and a dandy
shot it was, but how Routledge got,
in the way of il for a most brilliant
save we are at a loss to know. Play
Iranferred to the other end where
Stewart gave a wonderful display of
mis-kick Ing which would certainly
have spelt disaster bad not .Mortimer,
bis playing companion, releived the
tension by clearing in an easy manner, Deluce and Plump found no
easy pickings in Harris who Anally
forced a comer. Husband placed a
pretty shot which landed right in
Dlalr's outstretched hands from where
it dropped, a second later, just as
prettily to the ground where it was a
simple thing for the inside left to kick
Into tiie goal. "Why the goal-keeper
dropped it to the ground after he had
his hands securely ou lt we do not
know nor do we think Blair does
himself. The, remainder of the half
reads nearly all In Cumberland's favor bul not one of the five forwards
was able to secure the equalizer.
Time and again they worked the ball
up to the visitor's goal-mouth from
where It was Immediately kicked up
the field again.
Xot long nfter the beginning of tlio

hurt   earlier   in   the   game,   left   the

MAGNIFICENT RECEPTION
TENDERED PREMIER KING
On Tuesday evening, H.M.C.S. Patrician arrived at Coniox with thu
Premier of Canada on board, having
left Prince Rupert the day before.
The party consisted of the Right
Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King, Premier
of Canada, Hon. J. A. Cardln. Minister of Marine and Fisheries, the Hon.
Hnl McGivern, Minister without Portfolio, Senator A. Haydon, Mr. McGregor, Secretary to thc Premier, Mr.
Meusures, Prof. Cudnierc, Statlctlclaii
Mr. L. Lussier. Secretary to Hon. Mr,
Cardeu, H. A. McCrae, Representing
Canadian Pacific Railway Telegraphs
and G. H. Stead, Western Supt. Canadian National Telegraphs.
After a very rough voyage the de-
troyer anchored off Comox Wharf ami
the distinguished party made a landing In small boats and were met upon
arrival by Mr. A. W. Neill M.P. and
Acting Mayor Slmms. The Premier
and party were made very comfortable at the Elk Hotel during their
stay at Comox.
On Wednesday afternoon several of
the prominent business men of Cumberland and Courtenny attended a reception held in thc par' rs of the
Elk Hotel when they wer. introduced
to the Premier and party. The Cumberland representatives were His
Worship Mayor Parnham, .. H. Carey
John Sutherland and Alex .McKlnnon.
The Cumberland City Dana wns also
present and played several suitable
selections.
Among those present from Courtenay were Alex Urquhart. Jos. McPhee, P. L. Anderton, A Cleland tho
Mayor and Council. When the Premier arrived at the Courtenay Hot.:],
acting Mayor Slmms read the official
welcome on behalf of the City of
Conrtenay as follows:
"It Is with feelings of gratitude and
pride that the citizens of Courtenny
extend to you a hearty welcome to our
young municipality.
"That you have found time and opportunity to visit the Courtenay-Comox district is In itself something
thut no other Prime Minister of Canada has done before.
"We trust that ypu may he spared
many years of good health to continue
your useful work for the people of
this great Dominion, a country of
which both you and we have every
reason to proudly cluim as our joint
inheritance.
"This reception is not in any way
a political function or gathering, but
you. sir. can rest assured that so long
as you continue to give your good
services (as In the past) ".wards securing the greatest good for the
greatest number" then the people of
this district will appreciate and support your efforts irrespective of any
private politral leanings.
"That you have carefully studied
the Peace Itiver question and realize
the importance of transportation as
essential to a farming community, encourages me to point out to you the
fact that we have in this district one
of the oldest settled fnrming areas nn
Vancouver Island, that the only hindrance to much greater production In
the past has been the lack of cheap
transportation for thc fnrm produce
to adjacent markets.
"We have u solution whicli our esteemed federal member, M. A. W. Neill
will lay before your ministers nt an
early date.
"Upon the occasion of ibis, your
first official visit, It Is our privilege
to welcome you to the acknowledged
centre of a beautiful agricultural dltl
trlet. Next time wo have the pleasure of your company In our midst we
trust it wlll Im to visit nn even more
propcrous community and Ihat Courtenay wlll then be n sea-port city ful-
lllllug tier duly us a dlslri .tiling centre which nature and an all-wise providence evidently intended Bhe should
"In concluding this address nf welcome, 1 should like to add that the
citizens of Courtenay appreciate and
welcome thc news thai a government
grant hns been made towards a post
office building for our city, nnd also
for the valuable work that the government department has done this
year in improving the Courtenny
River for navigation."
The Hon. Mr. King in replying
thanked the people of Courtenay for
the warmth of welcome he had received both at Courtenay and Comox.
He wns glad to note Its non-polltlcal
nature: and he could assure thorn
thnt thc government hnd no aim hut
tn advance the interests of the citizens of the Dominion Irrespective of
race or party and regardful only of
one  fact—namely,    that    Ihey    were
Canadian citizens and entitled to
equal treatment in every respect. Mr.
King spoke in the warmest terms of
Mr. Neill. He said that at Ottawa
they not only liked Mr. Neill. they
loved him: he was one of the best
of men and the truest of friends and
one of the ablest reperesentatives any
constituency could have. Therefore
it bad not required much persuasion
to get him to come to tills district aud
meet the people who sent him to parliament. He would like to take that
opportunity to thank Mr. Neill for the
loyal and helpful way in which he had
supported the government In Its difficulties in the House of Common,
He never fniled to tell them where
they failed but it was done ln a very
helpful way. He knew that a government could not hope to do things that
a government wilh a large majority
could do: and he had taken a broad
view of the matter and helped them
In various ways. Mr. King also paid
a high compliment lo Dr. King, as
Minister of Public Works. As to the
new post olllce its erection only expressed the views the present goven-
ment had of the present needs and
future possibilities of Courtenay. If
Courtenny was to be a distributing
centre and seaport on the Pacific
then they must have a proper distributing centre for tlielr mall. At
the conclusion of liis speech the Premier wns greeted with three hearty
cheers and the singing of "O! Canada!"
The Premier received the address
of welcome, made a eloquent reply
and immediately stepped out Into the
middle of the street and made his
way into the centre of a large crowd
of hoys and girls, pupils of the Courtonay High School. The Premier
shook hands with the children ond
mnde himself as one ol them tor ten
minutes and then received a committee from the Soldier Settlers of the
tlislricl who presented him with an
address.
Settlers Present  Memorial .
The following ts a copy of tho memorial presented to the nt. Hon. W. L.
Mackenzie King, Premier of Canada,
from the .Soldier Settlers Association
of Courtenay, IJ.C'. An executive composed of Messrs. J. Carey, B. E, Ault
and W. I,. Hodgklna waited upon the
Premier at 3:00 o'clock Wednesday
afternoon at the Courtenny Hotel and
presented their plea of flnnnclal
standing and conditions iM the Merville and Courtenay districts:
TO:
The lit. Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King,
Premier of Canada.
Sir;—
Whereas the Settlers lu this district under tiie Dominion Land Settlement Scheme Hnd themselves In a deplorable financial condition owing to
the deflation In prices of land, live
stock and farm products generally.
And whereas the Settlers whose
places were purchased a few years
ago and who have remained on these
places have already suffered serious
financial loss, having invested all
their savings as well as giving four
or (Ive years of tlielr lives In a fruitless endeavor Io make their farm a
Unnncial success.
And whereas many settlers have
been compelled to abandon their
farms. Whilst in ibis district alone,
altliciue.il only sixteen cases are shown
as actual salvage cases, there are upwards of forty settlers out of 144 who
have left their places with no Intention of returning, making a percentage nf B.%.
And whereas the Government will
nl the preseni time toll any of these
abandoned places to the public at
cost price plus amount spent on Permanent improvements thus showing a
complete loss of amounts spent on
stock and Bqulpmeni as well as loss
of all interest due.
And whereas very few Salvage properties have been re-sold ami ill some
enses where re-sale has taken place
the properties have again reverted to
the Hoard, thus Indicating that such
properties are considerably overvalued.
And whereas lhe prevnlllng price
of wild land in Ihls district Is $7.50
per acre and the average price paid bv
Soldier Settlers averages $40.00 per
acre. Whilst cost of clearing same
Is from $200.01) to (300.00 making cost
of further clearing prohibitive nt original price paid for this land: such
land being valueless for farming purposes until cleared.
And whereas It Is believed that any
reasonable adjustment as hereinafter

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1924.
KEEP GOING
Some one said, "old age is stiffness"
and we note the stumbling gait that
comes from tired muscles, we wonder if this is stiffness of old age creeping upon us. "We so often see people
who are real old, people who have
failed to keep in touch with those
springs of life which yield their vital
si reams without stint to the very end
of mortal days, that we have come tn
associate the ideas of infirmity and
age.
Now age wedded to infirmity is indeed sad to contemplate, but they need
not always go hand in hand. If you
are infirm in your old age, it is probably your own fault or the fault of
your parents. The one thing that
will keep you from the infirmities of
old age is to refuse to let, the procession of life pass you by. A healthy
interest and participation in the affairs of the community, the state, and
nation, keeps the mind young. The
mind being young the stiffness In your
legs will disappear, and your body
will function harmoniously.
The world will not stand still. All
things change. Endless problems
offer themselves for solution. Life
is like the smoke from one's pipe,
whirling, swirling, changing ever. But
accumulating years need not be regarded -as a burden. The world is
blessed by many men wlio, at 80 and
past, are vitally and valorously at
work along many lines of human activity. If one is unable to find interest in the present great achievements of science, then, indeed, has
remorseless, silly age gripped him.
This fate need not be yours. Youth
is throbbing all about us. Keep in
touch with it. Be young in spirit.
Gray hair and wrinkles are mostly
liars. Work, and think, and live. To
drool and maunder and complain is
to advertise that in you the two Takes
age and infirmity, have joined hands
to push you over the edge of the abyss
of time long before you need have
stumbled with the stiffness of old age.
LET OLD TIMER WORRY
We heard Old Timer lamenting the
other day as follows: "It can't go on;
we're headed for trouble. Folks are
living beyond their means. They
don't work any more. It's golf, or
joy-ride, air races, foot races, horse
races. Always tearin' around in circles and gettin' nowhere." And so
on, the poor old simpleton babbled.
There was a time when we, too,
thought that people didn't work
enough. We shortened the working
day to eight hours, with Saturday afternoon off for most of us. That
seemed like cutting down production
nnd adding to the cost of living. Then
we began to investigate a bit. We
found that production was not being
cut down. The workers were turning out as much work in eight hours
as they did in ten. One day we had
occasion to make a trip to another
town. In Old Timer's day we would
have jogged across country in a buggy
drawn by the old gray mare. It
would have taken the entire day to
make the whole trip uud transact the
business in the other town. Today
we jumped into an automobile, (lew
over the roads at thirty miles an
hour,  transacted  the    business    and
were back in our office an hour before
lunch time, with five hours of the
eight-hour day to spare. Our new
methods of doing business and getting
about have saved us hours every
week. We used to go to the well
and draw water, now we turn a spigot in the wall and the stream pours
forth. We went on long errands; today the telephone carries the message iu the time it took us to find our
hat. In Old Timer's day it took an
hour every morning to clean tire old
coal oil lamps and trim the wicks;
the electric light bulb needs no attention for months. And so it is, if
you'll only stop to think. Of course
people don't work long hours as they
once did. They don't have to. But
the fellow who uses liis brains is the
fellow who is getting ahead. And
today, as always, the brain wins tho
victory over brute strength and old
methods. Don't worry about what
the world is coming to. Think how
you can get the most out of the brief
span that, is allowed to you. Do your
work with your brain and let the Old
Timers worry.
Headaches
and the
eyes-
ONE  thing has been  demon- II
titrated without a shadow of .
a doubt—it Is this:
QA%   of   all   headaches   are !
*'" caused  by eye-strain, and
can be relieved quickly aud per- j
roanently by suitable glaases.
Iflt more cases for eye-strain
than I do for defective vision,
and the results are so gratifying
—so conclusive, that you ought
to know about them.

GOOD BOYS AND FUN
A group of young men were standing on the corner a few evenings ago
when one of the number proposed a
questionable adventure. There was
one lad who discountenanced the proposal and declined to join the others.
With an oath, the leader of the gaii*.
Baid,"Come on; don't coax him. He's
a good boy, and good boys don't know
how to have fun.'
The fact is that the good boy, the
clean boy is the only one who does
know how to have fun. Compare his
cheek ruddy, his eye bright, his laugh
loud and ringing, his pulses bounding
from his faithful obedience to nature's
law; his brow open and unclouded,
his heart loving, light, and hopeful,
from his obedience to the laws of
right—compare these with the chee!;
pallid the eye listless, the blood vitiated and sluggish, from nature's
laws violated; the heart heavy. Riled
with dull, aching discontent, from the
ever-living sense of wrongs dune iu
the past and un repented in the present- compare all these nnd then judge
who it is that 'knows how to have
fun."
The Best Medicine
I Have Ever Taken
That is the verdict of Mr, I.. I.
O'Neill who finds in Dreco a wonderful system building tonic.
"I suffered agonies from indigestion," says Mr. O'Neill, who lives at
470 Young St., Winnipeg. "Everything I ate soured and formed gas in
a most distressing way. I alwa>s
had a had taste in my mouth and was
troubled with catarrh of the throat
and stomach. I was chronically
constipated aud, in fact, was so badly
run down that I had about given up
hope of ever getting better."
"Since taking Dreco, however. I
have improved 100'/r. It is the best
medicine I have ever taken and has
put me on the road to health. My
digestion is greatly improved and
the bad taste in my mouth has gone,
while my catarrh is also on the mend.
My bowels are regular. I never hesitate to praise Dreco for the good it
has done ine."
Dreco will help those who suffer
from an ailing digestive system. Its
pure herbal juices tone and regulate
the stomach liver, bowels and kidneys and purify the blood. Dreco
contains no mercury potash or habit-
forming drugs.
Dreco is being specially Introduced
In Cumberland by Lang's Drug Store,
mid Is gold by all good druggists
every where.

In the night Berg was awakened by
his companion wlio had discovered
that the boat was afire, and was giving the alarm. When Berg realized
the danger they were in he made for
the door and jumped overboard, leaving Noren sitting on Ills bunk. Berg
swam around In the water for a while
anil as he was going around the stern
of tiie boat and he heard Noren shouting. "I can't find tbe door." Berg
called to him say. "the door Is wide

The Library of Cumberland baa attained a station where it might be
termed a permanent fixture in this
district, so much so that it is doubtful if the people would ever do with
ont, one again.
Since its inception there have been
662 members enrolled, those readers
have read 27,4r»G books, and one must
realize, judi.ii)K from these Ilgures,
tliat the library in Cumberland is fining a much appreciated need.
Approximately every throe months,
about 800 new books replace the same
number of those thai have been on
the reading shelves, among these
there are approximately 12% of which
are books that are the latest out and
have never been read in any other library.
The reading season is coming info
its own now and the Literary Com-
mittee hope that every one in Cumberland will take full advantage of
that department of the Athletic Association.
An exceptional advantage al present is that any member desiring a
special book may request same from

STRIKE SETTLED
BY LABOR DEPT.
VICTORIA, Oct. 10—Once more this
labor department, under Attorney-
General Manson, has effected the settlement of labor differences. The
threatened miners' strike In Nanaimo
was averted and after the men had
quit work for one day they went
back again. Deputy-Minister J. D.
McNIven was largely instrumental In
smoothing over the difficulties of the
miners and a three-year agreement
has been signed. Despite comparative luiril-times all over the continent, the workers have only suffered an
nsignifiCaiit cut in their remuneration. The daily bonus of one dollar
was cut to ninety cents.

I am more than pleased with the results obtained g

PREMIER WILL
HAVE COMPARATIVELY
EASY SLEDDING
VICTORIA, Oct. 10.—Despite the
defeat of Dr. K. C. MacDonald, provincial secretary, in the North Okanagan by-election, the Oliver Government will face the new Legislature
on November 3 with every probability
of getting through the session unscathed. Although Dr. MacDonald's
defeat was regretted, friends and political foes of the administration concede that the Liberals will be In power lour years hence, and that a Liberal-Labor coalition will give the
Premier comparatively easy sledding.
The Premier's announcement Saturday that the Legislature will convene on November 3 leads fo the belief that the session will be a short
and snappy one. It will probably be
over on Saturday, December 20.
Little contentious legislation ls on the
agenda. This Is due chiefly to the
fact that for the past four years social
labor and financial legislation has
been kept well abreast of the times,
it' not in advance of other province..

naimo had to finish with only ten men
which put them at a considerable disadvantage. Consequently Cumberland took all the attack into their
own hands and the visitors had to
be content to play a defensive game
ln fact, Blair only handled twice 111
Ihls period while Routledge did nothing else. However, the real thriller
of the day, and Incidentally the shot
which tied the score, came from Graham's boot exactly nine minutes from
the slnrt and was a beautiful shot
which skimmed under the bar with
such speed that the goalie never had
a chance for It. With both teams
now on avail terms ths gams litcanie
more interest Ing to watch, for players
on both teams, who had hitherto been
playing n 'don't care' brand of bnll,
begun to awaken to the fact Uiat they
must give the besl that was in them.
Conti shol a speedy one over the bar
and MncDonalds' shot into goal was
only saved by Routledge after much
fumbling, Doubtless Conti was the
best man on the field and to his own
team he was a tower of strength. For
lhe remainder of the match neither
team wns able lo break the draw although Nanaimo nearly did it with
only one minute to go, This was one
of the two occasions In the second
period when Blair got his hands on
the ball. The game ended with a one
goal draw, both teams remaining yet
unbeaten In the league schedule.
For Nanaimo Routledge surpassed
himself In goal while MacDougall and
Harris wsrs Just si brilliant lu thsir
respective positions. As stated above
Conti was the shining light of thu
local aggregation with Graham running him a close second. Blair had
tough luck with the goal that beat
him and we are convinced Hint lie
carries a hoodoo. He Is -in his element when the shots come thick and
fast but when a slow one comes, one
thnt would seem easy pickings for a
school kid, he falls down badly. A.
S. Jones was satisfactory to both
teams as referee.
Sunday's game marked the opening
of the new grandstand which was filled to capacity. It is a decided improvement over former conditions and
especially will it's presence be appreciated on a rainy day.

I say this to Graham, the United's centre: "If we had a shot like yours,
George, we would try a few mors
long rings onss thsn you do."
Fire Prevention
Week
This particular week is set apart in most communities throughout the Dominion for the purpose of
removing the various causes of fires which annually
exact a heavy toll of life and property.
While this particular week is FIRE PREVENTION WEEK for everyone, EVERY WEEK is FIRE
PREVENTION WEEK for us when it comes to making Electrical Installations that are as nearly FIRE
PROOF as it is possible to make them.
An analysis of electrical flres shows that most of them do
not originate In standard installations but In such as are defective, usually the result of Improper Installations, deterioration
and neglect, or from misuse, as In the case of electric pressing
Irons, improper fusing, etc. In fact, a nine year summary of
the result of detailed Investigations of fires In New York by the
Electrical Department of the New York Board ot Fire Undewrlt-
ers shows that out of a loss of $1,614,338, the cause of which was
definitely established as electrical, only 21 per cent was caused
by fire ln equipments which, according to the records, were In
compliance with the requirements of the National Electrical
Code. Some part of this small percentage must also be charged
to the misuse of such standard equipments and to possible deterioration. The balance, amounting to 79 per cent of the losses due to electricity, occurred In equipments known to have been
defective.
Properly installed Electric wiring is one of the
safest things in your home or store.
Amateur or slipshod wiring is a menace that may
at any time convert your property into a smouldering
heap of ruins.
Is your wiring safe? If you do not know, it may
pay you to find out.

there. A road was once starlet
there but after about six miles had
been constructed it was abandoned us
the appropriation ran out. This road
when completed would be a great
boon to tourist travel as a party could
come up to Campbell River by way of
Courtenay and return by way of Alberni with additional interest, instead
of returning over the same route.
Mr. Edwards asked Mr. Harrison
about a possible grant of $n,000 for a
new Agricultural Hall as a few yearn
ago the government had promised to
help as soon as the society owned
their own grounds, which they do
now. Mr. Leo. Anderton pointed ou;
that the fair wus not getting as many
live stock exhibits as ii might do, on
account of the poor buildings for thai,
branch. Mr. Harrison did not commit himself ou this item but advised
that a delegation from the Agricultural society be appointed to take the
matter up with him and the government during the legislature. Rut he
wus strongly in favor of getitng
grants of money for road purposes in
preference to that of the agricultural
society.
Mr. Jack McLeod brought up ths
matter of a small debt magistrate in
the district to help the merchant collect his bills without too great expense. Mr. Harrison was in favor
of this and thought there ought to be
one appointed in both Courtenay and
Cumberland with an over lapping territory. This would bring the deb.
collecting by the merchant to a minimum. Mr. Harrison agreed to look
this matter up and see if it could bc
possible to make such arrangement.*.
jWith this Mr. Harrison left the
meeting with the hearty thanks and
best wishes of the chairman and other
members of the Hoard of Trade.

re-payments due to the Board so far
as Live Stock is concerned in accordance with the recommendation of
the Special Committee on Re-establishment of Returned Soldiers as set
out iu Clause 1, Section A and B of
their report to the House.
(2) To make a reduction of 2','/'
on original cost of cleared land and
permanent improvements purchased
and made in the years 1919, 1920, etc.
Also a reduction of 50% on original
cost of all uncleared land purchased

Kailing the reduction as applied to
laud mentioned in Clause 2, we ask
for a re-valuation of land hy a Committee composed of the District Representative of the Board, an individual appointed by the Settlers and a
Referee approved by both Board and
Settlers. Such re-valuatlon could
thus be made at a small cost to the
country being similar to the re-valuation scheme recently carried out by
the Provincial Government in their
Soldier Settlement located ut Merville.
We, being a Committee appointed hy
the Soldier Settlers of the District to
interview you, respectfully request
tliat you give your support to the
above alterations with special references to Vancouver Island, where conditions are altogether different to any
other part of Canada.

EMPLOYMENT
CONDITIONS IN CANADA
IMPROVING
VICTORIA, Oct. 17.—Improved unemployment conditions in British
Columbia are reported by Mr. J. 0,
McNivon, deputy-minister of laluv,
who returned recently from attending
a labor conference at Ottawa. Seasonal employment in this province is
not so marked as ft used to be, and
each year sees work carried on for
longer periods. However, Mr. McNIven has warned outsiders not to
come here expecting work, unless
they have sufficient funds to carry
them for a few months. He shows
tbat the men returning home to British Columbia from the prairie harvest fields have a much better chance
to pick up the jobs offering.
Mrs. Sam. Boothman returned to
Cumberland recently after a three-
mouths' visit to the Old Country.
* *   *
Mrs. Sutherland returned home this
week after a short holiday in Vancouver.
* *    *
Mrs. George O'Brien and daughter
have returned from their visit to the
interior of British Columbia, fully recovered  from their recent illness.
