in the absence of u wholesale
denier, to the retailer;
(2) A statutory declaration showing the range of prices, for the
' different   cuts,   at   which   this
beef ls sold to consumers;
(3) Whether the Council lias knowledge of any association of
dealers whose primary object
is to fix prices.
On receipt of those declarations and
information I shall be pleased to give
the matter further consideration; although, in any event, I can only make
my recommendations to the Federal
government, under whom matters
dealing with trade and commerce
come, for their consideration and
action. ,
Yours truly,

BAND DANCE WAS
SPLENDID SUCCESS
As was expected, the llo-Ilo Dance
Hall was well filled with dancers on
Thursday evening, on the occasion ol
the dance given by the Cumberland
City Band.
A feature of the evening was the
splendid orchestra, comprising eight
players under Bandmaster Alverstone,
There were two violins, two cornets.
piano, trombone, clarinet and drums
in the aggregation. The music was
much enjoyed by the happy throngs of
dancers. Dancing was kept up until
about 2.30.
inning the latter part of April and
beginning of May last, complaints
were made to the Chief of Police to
the effect that several small thefts had
occurred at the School Buildings and
the Cumberland Athletic Association
Hall, the thefts being committed at
night, entrance to the buildings having apparently being gained by the
use of skeleton keys.
Enquiries led tho chief to suspect
a man named J. Short, who at one
time had given the name of Muir, and
answered the description of a man
who bad slept in a vacant passenger
coach at the Wellington Colliery Kail-
way depot. Further enquiries showed
that tliis man had gone to Bevan,
where lie had apparently obtained
work at No. 7 Mine.
On tho 6th inst. Mr. F. Partridge
reported to the chief that a man
named Short had obtained two suit
cases from him under what appeared
to be false pretences. This report
gave the chief definite information
under which he could secure a warrant. Accordingly he notified Provincial Constable Dunbar, and together
<hey proceeded to Bevan in search of
Short, but enquiries only brought out
the fact that Short had obtained board
and lodging in a private house and had
later been ejected fb*r non-payment
Short Iiad been seen in Cumberland
ou tlie (Jth inst. Apparently gelling
suspicious of police activities, ho vanished. After a thorough search the
chief discovered two suit cases which
had been left by the suspected man
in an unoccupied room iu town. On
the suit cases being opened they were
found to contain articles which had
been stolen from the two first-named
buildings, and also some from a store
in town.
Diligent enquiries were made as lo
the whereabouts of the suspect, but
beyond the usual wild rumors which
generally attend cases of Ihis kind, no
definite information could be obtained
until, on Wednesday morning last, il
was reported that a man had beeu
seen near Koyston about S o'clock.
At about the same time Mr. .1. A.
Fraser reported thai Ills barber shop
had been broken into and several
small articles stolen. Chief of Police
Bunbury und Constable Dunbar at
once made haste lo Union Hay. Enquiries on the road showed that Short
had been seen about a mile from the
Buy, but no other evidence of his appearance could he gathered, aud it
was presumed that he bad taken to
the railway track as a safe route,
Tlie police drove to lb*' docks, where
the S.S. Charmer was on the point of
sailing, aud nol Hied tin1 oflicers of
their search, They theif proqei ded to
Uuioii Bay and uot I fled the agent, si
tor which tbey wonl on to Fanny Baj
and 'Watched the railway track. Coming to the conclusion that Ihelr man
must still be in Union Hay. thoy returned to that place ami found (hat a
telephone message had been sent to
Cumberland stating thai Short was on
the wharf. Sergt. Brian of the It N,
W. M- P.. was notified, and be In turn
notified Constable Bolous, who was at
Union Hay. Constable Bolous, accompanied by Mr, A. S. Abrams. proceeded to the wharf, where they found
Short, and detained him until Chief of
Police Bunbury and Constable Dunbar
returned to Union Bay, when the chief
arrested Short on a warrant.
On Thursday morning Short ap
peared before Magistrate Baird. -The
charge against him by rife chief was
withdrawn and two other charge:
were laid by Constable Dunbar, thai
of breaking and entering Fraser';
Barber Shop and also Ihe Literary and
Athletic Hall and taking tilings there
from.

Mining and Metallurgy Formed
Aim to Make Island Branch One of Best in Dominion—Standardization of Certificates From ('nasi to Coast—Mr. Geo. O'Brien
Elected Chairman.

formed on June 2, 1931, with headquarters in Nanaimo, and will he
known as the Vancouver island Branch
of the Canadian Institute of Mining
and  Metallurgy.

tho Canadian Western Fuel Co., was
appointed chairman of Uie meeting

jeet   Of   the    eling.      lie   stated .that
Mr,    O.    McKenzie,    the    secretary-
treasurer of the Institute, was present
to address the meeting, and after
tew remarks called Mr. McKenzie to
the  platform.
Mr. McKenzie in a very able manner gave a lengthy address and staled
that the executive council had instructed him to visit each mining
centre from tlie Atlantic to the Pacific
for the purpose of getting into personal touch with the members of the
institute. He was very pleased to see
so many present ou such short notice,
there being representatives from all
the collieiies on Vancouver Island in
attendance. lie also stated tliat it was
the policy of tho executive council to
have the secretary-treasurer visit
each centre from coast to coast at
least once a year. It is expected that
this will bridge the ga^ that now ex-
ts betwen the East and West.
Many matters of interest to the coalmining members were touched upon,
mongst which were the following:
Standardization of certificates of mine
ollicials throughout the Dominion of
Canada; the proposal of transportation of Alberta coal to Eastern points
over Transcontinental Railways; the
idmission of all underground mine
ollicials to membership in the Institute,
Standardization of (Vrlilicutes.

Cup series is to decido which team
shall go to Winnipeg to represent B.
C. in the Dominion championship.
As fftr as British Columbia is concerned thero should be no' necessity
Ior a scries of games to decide which
is ti7e champion team to represent the
province. Cumberland United have
already, won thc distinction of being
llic champions of B. C, and In no uncertain munner. Why tbey should be
called upon again to qualify is, In the
writer's opinion, hardly a square deal.
However, what the team has accomplished once it can do a second time.
The executive of the Nanalnni team
Is relying on the same team that beat
the Wallace's team of Vancouver, to
do duly here on Saturday.
Owing lo .Milligan leaving Cumberland for Kegiua, aud indisposition of

Spring seeding began in Western
Canada a month ago and Is now general throughout the country. Soil
conditions are reported to be highly
favorable everywhere for the reception of the seed. The weather has
also been auspicious up to the present
and good progress has been made.
In Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta It is estimated that there is a
total of 12,785,760 acres ready for
cropping, compared with 11,649,744

the provinces in which coal is mined.
The regulations governing the various
coal producing provinces at present
stipulates that an ollicial can not act
as mine manager, mine foreman, fire
boss or shptlighter unless he is In
possession of a certificate of competency issued by the province in which
coal production is carried ou. This
means that a person may lie a very
efficient mine manager in British Columbia, but if he did not possess a
eertilieate as such in the other coal
mining provinces he could not act as
mine manager, neither could he act in
any other ollicial position that requires a certificate.
In Great Britain tlie eertilieate of
competency issued is good ln Knglaud
Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and there
Is a greater variety of mining in those
countries than thero is in the Dominion of Canada at the present time
There is no reason why the standardization of certificates should not be
carried out.
Membership Open to Underground
Officials.
Another subject of importance was
tlie action taken by the executive council of the institute in opening their
ranks of membership to practically all
underground ollicials. This is a
underground mine ollicials. This is a
step in the right direction, as tbe mine
foreman aud fireboss of today will be
our mine managers, superintendents
and genernl managers of tomorrow
and every mine official should take
advantage of the new policy.
Election of Oflicers.
Nominations for officers of the new
branch was then called for, and the
following gentlemen were elected:
Chairman, Mr. O. O'Brien, Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir), Ltd., Cumberland.
Vice-chairman, Mr. T. A. Spruston
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd.,
Ladysmith.
Secretary-treasurer, Mr. W. H
Moore, Canadian Western Fuel Co.
Nanaimo.
Local Council: Mr. Chas. Graham
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd.,
Cumberland; Mr. Jas. Strang, Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., Ladysmith; Mr. Chas. Campbell. General
Superintendent, Cassidy; Mr. John
John, Superintendent, New Jingle Pofi
Nanaimo.
It Is the intention to make the new
branch one of the best of its kind in
the Dominion, and plans are being
prepared for this purpose.
Mr. John Hunt, General Manager of
the Canadian Western Fuel Co., and
Mr. Thomas Graham, General Superintendent of the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd., expressed their
willingness to co-operate with the
executive of the branch in making ii
a success, and also offered their help
to defray some of the expenses incurred in the organization on behalf
of tlie companies they represent.
This generous offer on behalf of the
mining companies was accepted and it
is hoped that all Interested will put
their shoulders to the wheel and maki
the Vancouver Island branch second
to none.
A hearty vote of thanks was accord
ed to Mr. McKenzie, to which he suit
ably replied, and in the course of hi,
remarks stated that he was highly
satisfied and well repaid for the
trouble of coming to Vancouver Is-
land, as the meeting was one of the
most enthusiastic he had attended dur
ing his tour of the Dominion.
The organization work was left in
the hands of the Local Council, and a
meeting will be called in the near
future to hear their report.
HOUSING OF POULTRY
Not all who keep chickens either in
town or country know how to secure
thc best results from Ihelr flocks. For
lack of knowledge Ihe chicks often
develop Into spindle-legged, small
bodied, poor-laying creatures, Antl
yet any amount of instructive literature Is published and can lie had without cost by applying to the Publications Branch of thc Department ol*
Agriculture at Ottawa. Housing
shares in Importance with feeding, If
the best results are to be gained. In
this connection it is interesting to
observe that a revised edition of tlie
bulletin on Poultry House Construction by F. C. Elford, Dominion Poultry
Husbandman, has just been Issued by
the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa, to meet the constantly increasing demand for information coming
from almost every class of the community. The bulletin, which is based
on trials of various kinds of poultry
bouses in different parts of Canada
treats of the subject clearly and comprehensively. Plans and building Instructions, with illustrations and diagrams, are so given as to enable anyone to erect a poultry house as may
be desired.

ending March 31, 1919, and the second
part for the twelve months ending
March 31, 1920. The health of Canada's live stock during both years is
shown to have been highly satisfac
tory. In fact it is easy to believe that
Canada is the healthiest country in
the world for all breeds of live stock.
Xo country can claim to be absolutely
free from ailments In Its cattle,
horses, sheep and swine any more
than it can that every human being Is
health-perfect. But Canada, it is safe
to assert, comes nearer to the ideal
stale than any other land. None of
the epizootic diseases that cause most
anxiety to sanitary officials, such as
foot and mouth diseases, cattle plague
and contagious pleuro-pnoumonla, are
found within our borders. Diseases
that do exist to a very limited extent,
such as glanders, hog cholera and
cattle mange, the report shows, are
being kept well under control and aro
diminishing In number year by year.
Glanders Is proven to have existed
only In Northern Saskatchewan and
Manitoba, and In those provinces extremely few cases are reported. All
the outbreaks, It Is stated, have been
efficiently dealt with and the disease
eradicated.

CULLING THE FLOCK
Experimental Farms Note.
The hatching season should now be
over on the well regulated poultry
plant and attention directed to culling
the flock to make room for the growing youngsters.
In the first place there should be
vigorously culled from the flock all
birds that show any physical defects,
such as crooked beaks, backs or
breasts, excessively long toe nails,
sunken eyes and long "crow" head,
knock-knees or other signs ot poor
stamina and low vitality
At this season, If tbey have not already been discarded, the hens over
two years old, unless possessing the
characteristics of extra high production and retained as breeders on this
account, should be marketed as soon
as they stop laying, show signs of
broodlness or moult.
When trap nests are used this condition Is readily noticeable, but if not
the bens that have stopped laying can
be readily distinguished by their
shrinking comb and fading color of
face and wattles, also by the contraction ot the pelvic bones.
Those bones, slightly protruding ou
each side of the vent, remain spread
to the width of about three fingers
placed perpendicularly between them,
as long as the hen ls laying. In the
poor producer they will be found
closed to the width of only one finger,
and when the latter condition ls evident early in the season, when she
should be still producing, it is a
fairly good indication that the bird
bas given up too soon and ls not the
type that makes the high record.
Vigor, health and high producing
qualities are Bhown by distinctly visible characters, and all birds that do
not carry these qualities ln a marked
degree should disappear from the
flock.
The hlgh-productng characters of
primary significance are: Full, red
comb, bright bulging eye, long keel
bone with lots of width between stern
extremity and pelvic bones showing
depth of body with capacity for feed
and room for producing organs; fine
pelvic bones spread well apart and an
elastic, velvet texture to the skin of
the abdomen.
Hens tbat moult late In the season
and in tbe yellow-skinned varieties
those individuals that fade out white
In the sections that show pigment,
namely the skin, beak, shank and ear
lobe, also indicate the possibility of
high production, and should be kept
in preference to those tbat do not
carry these qualities.
There are more Intricate decisive
characters that help ln the selection
of good from poor layers, but the foregoing will be of some use In an elementary way, to the farmer In selecting his breeders to carry over to the
next season. It carefully followed,
they will eliminate most ot the undesirable specimens that are a source
ot expense without profit and rob the
deserving hens of the flock of their
creditable record.

THE LIQUOR CONTROL ACT
Wednesday next, June 15. is the date set when the new
Liquor Act comes into operation, which will convert British Columbia, locally, from a semi-arid territory under the
Prohibition Act to a semi-moist province under Government Control. There lias been very much talk both in and
out of Parliament, nml volumes have been written upon
the subject. Inn ul the present lime very little interest
seems to be taken in the mutter.
On enquiry at the local Government Olllce we are informed that not a single application has been made for a
permit to purchase liquor! On the lirst day on which the
permits were on sale in Vancouver twenty were sold, and
in Victoria nineteen. Certainly the supposedly thirsty
citizens of this fair province nre not ln a hurry to pay live
dollars for the privilege of purchasing liquor in due
season. The probability is the great majority will wait
until they wish to purchase beer or liquor before getting
the necessary pormit. An objection Is against the Liquor
Control Board assessing the full live dollars for only half
a year's use.
Ono clause tliat will give a great deal of trouble to the
authorities and irritation to those affected, ia the proposal
to tax private stocks of liquor with the difference aa paid
by the owner and the price at which the Liquor Control
Board will sell similar liquor. Prominent lawyers have
ventured the opinion that the amount the government will
get from thia source will be nil. Such being the case it
may prove cheaper to send out of the province for liquor
than to purchase it from the Liquor Control Board, which
would be a big blow to the llnancial success of the venture.
It has been reported that the chairman of the Liquor
Board wants the price sufficiently high to enable funds to
be available with which to light the bootlegger and put
him out of business. Should this be the policy of the
Liquor Board we feel they are doomed to disappointment.
The higher the cost of liquor the more bootlegging will
there be, because there is more profit. Make the liquor so
cheap that selling it will be unprofitable for this nefarious
Individual and he will automatically go out of business,
to the great benefit of all concerned.
The publlc are asked to give tlie new Act a fair trial.
If found unsatisfactory it can be amended at the next
session of the Provincial Legislature in a few months.
ADVANTAGES OF BUYING CANADIAN-
MADE GOODS
The advantages of more general support of the Made-
in-Canada movement are abundantly apparent, and some
of them may be listed as follows:
1. It would result in provision of employment for more
workers in Canada in the mine, in the factory and on tlie
farm, and would lie a material factor in relieving unemployment. If even 25 per cent, of the goods Imported into
Canada last year had been supplied from Canadian sources,
direct employment would have been provided for some
65,000 additional workers at good wages. Including dependents, such additional business would have supported
directly more than 250,000 persons.
2. The supplying of a larger part of Canadian needs
from Canadian sources would 'bring business to Canadian
railroads, Canadian banks, Canadian insurance companies, Canadian merchants and. in fact, to practically every
class in tlie community, and in tills way much additional
employment would be provided indirectly.
3. The home market for Canadian agricultural products,
raw materials and semi-manufactured goods, would be
considerably increased.
4. The enlarged home market for Canadian goods would
make possible production at a lower unit cost and would
June 11, 1921.
give tlie advantages of quality production, with consequent
benefits to tlie consumers. Canadian producers would lie
encouraged to add to their investment by Installing
specialized machinery and to attempt standardization of
output to a larger extent than is now possible.
5. By adding to tiie volume of business conducted in
Canada aud making possible the profitable ocupation of an
enlarged ''number of persons, the taxable income of tho
country would be considerably enlarged and the burden ot
taxation correspondingly eased.
SWAT THAT FLY
That tlie remorseless persecution of the fly is not a hope
less quest is amply proved by the success with which during tlie war the British medical service in Franco fought
the deadly insect under very difficult conditions. The ideal
of medical authorities is to make it as extinct as the dodo,
for of all living creatures Ihe common house Ily is the
one about which It seems to be generally agreed tliat II
possesses no single virtue or use In Its survival, even to
the extent of "preserving the balance ol* nature."—London

SPRING CLEANING
House-cleaning time, house-cleaning time!
The housewives arc busily chasing the grime;
The pictures are all taken down from the walls
The chairs and the tables are out in the halls,
And upstairs or downstairs, wherever you fare.
The odor of suds and ammonia is there.
Co-mingled with perfume of chloride of lime;
House-cleaning time!   House-cleantng-tlmel
Mother is wearing a calico gown,
A towel for headdress—and also a frown;
And Willie is lingering out in the street,
Appalled at the prospect of rugs he must beat,
And hoping his mother won't ask him to scrub;
While father, dear father, stops down at his club—
For only a person with patience sublime
Can stick around home when it's house-cleaning lime!
Oil, dustpans and buckets and brushes galore;
And mops, brooms and scrubbing rags clutter the floor.
You eat from the mantel or oil' of a shelf,
And all that you get you must rustle yourself.
Tlie clotheslines are sagging with blankets and such,
And mattresses fill the whole yard, pretty much;
The furniture's piled in a sort of a heap;
There's no place to sit and there's no place to sleep.
And wise people ilee to some far. foreign clime.
And slay there till after it's house-cleaning time!
—BERTON BRALEY.
News of Benjamin Franklin's "golden snowball"—the
accrued interest on his thousand dollar bequest to the city
of Philadelphia—Is reviving in England some old Franklin
stories. It seems that when he was a compositor in London he was known as "the American aquatic," not developing a taste for wine until he lived in Paris as American
Minister. Abbe Mouellet in "Letters to Lord Shelbourne,"
quotes a letter ln which Franklin says that the wickedness
of man before the flood was due to there being nothing but
water to drink. Noah had such a sickness of water whilst
iu the ark that he Invented wine, and thereafter—with the
exception of one lapse from sobriety—trod the path" of
virtue till death came. With his letter Franklin sent the
Abbe some drawings to prove tliat whereas all other
animals with long legs have long necks, so tliat they can
drink easily from rivers and streams, man lias a short
neck. He evidently was meant to drink easily out of a
glass, but Providence Intends thnt the inferior animals
shall drink water.

Both men will be animated by a long

agreed that the winner Is to lake the

them wlll give In, ami II Is unlikely
that there will be any fluke falls with
two such masters of tlie game as Sine
and Pete, and sheer supremacy in
grit, stamina and physique will deter
mine tlie result. It goes without saying tliat the bout wlll be one of the
fastest and most furious ever seen on
a local mat.
Both men are hard at work, nnd as
a matter of fact both of them/were
busy before the signing of the articles.
They have both been too long at the
game for either of them to be caught
at a disadvantage, and when they take
the mat on the 25th both will be In
tlie best possible condition. They are
both out to win; thoy are both confident of winning, and as each of them
feels that a twenty years' mat record
Is at stake, as well as their prestige

The need of mission workers along
the Pacilic Coast of British Columbia
Is strikingly illustrated in reports that
are sent in from Rev. George C. F.
Pringle, in charge of the Presbyterian
Loggers' Mission. In one district li.
found twenty-one families who had
never had a religious service, and
most of their children are unbaptlzed.
In other areas eighteen families have
had no religious service for a year
and twenty-six families for two years.
In yet another wide area, Including
several logging camps, die one hundred and twenty-six families have hail
nothing In the nature of a religious
service for live years. The deep-sea
fishermen of the const, who ore chiefly
of Scotch nnd Scandinavian extraction, have long been untouched by any
church. These are only a few examples of tlie urgent need for homo
mission  work on  tllc coast.
Plnneer Missions In It. C.
The first Presbyterian missionary
reached British Columbia sixty ycnr„
ago, the Irish Presbyterian Church
sending a representative to Victoria In
1861, followed by others in 1S02-D. Today there are 48 self-sustaining congregations, 31 augmented charges and
90 missions, or 10!) In all.
The Sikhs hi II. ('.
The East Indians, or Sikhs, of British Columbia, are being ministered to
by Presbyterian missionaries on Vancouver Islnnd, as well as tho mainland. The Sikhs have an imposing
temple ln Vancouver for their form of
worship, and have recently collected
S5.000 for a Sikh school in the Punjab.
Thc artist's lady friend was being
shown around the studio. "Oh, perfect!" she exclaimed, looking at a
picture. "Those ostriches are simply
superb. You should never paint anything but birds." The artist winced
under the blow. "These nre not ostriches," he said; "they are angels."

To Our Customers—
Although the price of many staple commodities
has fallen considerably in recent months, it is also
true that there are other very much used articles
which have not been reduced greatly, owing no doubt
to the powerful interests which control and regulate
the price of these goods.
In all cases and at all times, when the wholesale
price is reduced to us, we bring down the retail price
to the same extent.
Ihe accompanying price list of this week will bear
I his out, but we nlso hope to see a greater reduction in
such articles as Shoes, Clothing and Flour. The country is Hooded with hides and wool. Why should Shoes
and Clothing be still so high?
This is a matter that should interest those in
authority.

Fire Menace.
Messrs. Campbell Bros, wrote the
Council as follows:
"Cumberland,  B.C.,
"May 30, 1921.
"To the Mayor and Aldermen.
"Sirs.—We wish to draw your attention to the condition of several
outbuildings between our store and
Tarbell's store.
"Now that the hot weather Is with
us these shacks are very much of a
tiro menace, besides being an unnecessary obstruction In case of Are.
"The rates for Are insurance on this
whole block might bo reduced if these
outbuildings were removed, or the
owners were induced to have them
torn down and others rebuilt In a
more safe condition.
"We are, yours faithfully,
"CAMPBELL BROS."
This communication brought forth
some strong remarks, the aldermen
agreeing with the contents of the letter. Suggestions were made that
steps should be taken to have these
old places torn down.
The question was referred to the
Board of Works.
Concerning an overshipment of
about 200 feet of 6-inch pipe by Evans,
Coleman & Evans, the Council decided to retain the pipes, as they will undoubtedly be needed n the near future.

Till! BOWLING (HIKES
Editor Islander.—It was with pleasure 1 read tbe suggestion In The
Islander of June 4th for a bowling
green in Cumberland. As an enthusiast I have no hesitation In saying
that, properly managed, a green would
be a big success in this district. But
I am rather dubious of the City Park
as a suitable place, as a bowling green
requires to be kept In very good condition, and the oflicers would hardly
have sufficient control over a public
ground to ensure this always being
the case. The best Idea, to my mind,
is to form a club, procure private
property and make a good lawn.
Let's all booost tor a Bowling Club.
Yours in sport,

CHINA'S ARMY
I smile when 1 think about this
wonderful army of China. Chinese
soldiers will give you a laugh twenty-
four hours a day—there are 1,300,000
of them, and that's 1,3(10,000 laughs.
You see them everywhere. Thoy are
drawing six silver dollars a month
which they mostly don't get, and living off tlie fat and lean oi the land by
streaks.
Judged by the number of soldiers
under arms. China tliis minute is one
of the most military nations in the
world—hut she Isn't to lie taken seriously, except locally. And locally she
Is anything but the pacifist country
she's cracked up to be.
America brought China into the
war. Liberal China, tllat bus always
been friendly with America, wanted to
be with America and tbe militarists
saw a chance to gel tlle great national
army tbey dreamed of. So China was
swung Into the war on August 14,
1917.
America refused to lend them money
to build up the lighting force, and so
they turned to Japan, In the year
1H1S alone, twenly-nino loans, all on
secret agreements, aggreagling $12".-
000,000, were made by Japan. In the
forty-eight months preceding September, 1918, lifty-nne loans, totalling
$300,000,000,.wero made by Japan.
Most of this money went tor military purposes and resulted In the formation of a great northern army tliat
has been more or less under tlie direct
influence of Japanese military officers,
This army kept the corrupt and inefficient Peking officials In power and
drew Uglier the stranglehold Hint
Japan hns on the Chinese Government;
It kept the 11111,111111,111111 people of China
under Ihe heel of the Peking militarists und the different military governors, and In I11111 held these military
politicians under the spell of Japan,
China today is really less of a republic than Japan is and Japan lo '
day ls merely an ocno of the Qormany
of Bismarck, The government, instead of being a responsible demoo
racy. Is nothing short ot a military
autocracy—or rattier n colls,tion of
military autocracies, li Is uncontrollably decentralized to Hie extent
that the real power rests in some
twenty Tu-cbuns or military governors of provinces, each of whom Inc.
his own army and belongs lo some
clique of fellow Tu-ehiins that controls combinations of different Tu-
chuns.—Frazier Hunt in tlie International.

The telephone is one of the special factors of everyday life. It heeds no barrier of mountain or waterway; it is unmindful of distances; it spreads its network of communication throughout the province.
You take for granted the service the telephone gives

what efficiency of workers has maintained. By so doing you offer a fine tribute to the organization which

"HIS WIFE'S MONEY"
A Comedy-Drama Production of
High Calibre—Both Wholesome and Gripping.
"His Wife's Money," the Selznick
picture, starring Eugene O'Brien, is
properly described as a comedy-
drama. Its story is such as to permit
of the painting of real life with plenty
of light and shade, and as a consequence there is both wholesome
comedy and gripping drama.
The picture public is always Interested in "big things" which producers
for the screen find it possible to use
in telling their stories. An early incident of "His Wife's Money" showB a
disabled motor boat with a beautiful
girl Its lone occupant, snatched from
sure destruction as It hangs on the
very brink of a precipitous waterfall.
Deep In the bowels of the earth, later
ln the action, there Is shown a terrific
explosion which successfully uncovers
a rich vein of ore which means a fortune for the hero. Still later Is shown
the money-mad stock exchange in
New York in the throes ot a "bear"
movement that means ruin and disaster for hundreds ot frenzied operators.
With Eugene O'Brien playing a
role for which he is ideally suited,
Zona Keefe as his principal support,
and surrounded by a cast of players
who are among the ablest ever assembled for a Selznlck picture, It Is not
strange that the wealth of action
which is Indicated by these big scenes
makes for drama of the kind that is
rarely encountered in the picture
theatre.
Synopsis of the Story.
Richard Flint, a young engineer,
has gone to the Adirondacks for a
rest. While fishing he is startled by a
girl's cry for help. Marion Phelps,
an heiress, Is drifting towards a
waterfall. Flint rescues her, and it is
a case of "love at first sight."
Their love-making progresses rapidly. Flint, strong, independent and
umbltious, regards Marlon's wealth as
a "golden barrier," but the marriage
takes place after Marlon bas promised
to live within her husband's income.
James Caldwell, trustee of Marion's
estate, had hoped to win Marion for
himself. Before the wedding Cald
well had attempted to poison Flint's
mind against his fiancee, and after
the marriage his efforts continued.
Tilts between Flint and his wife,
based upon Flint's determination not
to live upon "his wife's money" became frequent. Then Flint accepts an
important commission to relocate a
rich vein of ore which has "run out"
on a big Western mining property.
Roughing it and playing for big
game, Flint is delighted with the
West. Marlon finds the life unbearable.
The Upplngtons and Caldwell go
West and visit the Flints. Marion is
delighted—it means a break in her
monotonous life. Caldwell sympathizes with Marion and induces her to
leave Flint and return East.
At the mine Flint uncovers the lost
vein of ore and he Is a wealthy man.
He rushes home to nnd his wife-
gone. His rage against Caldwell ls
boundless. He vows to destroy him.
He finds no blame for Marion. Flint's
plan of revenge Is to break Caldwell
financially. By flooding the market
with stocks he forcos it down until
Caldwell is ruined.
But Flint's efforts to break Caldwell
have other effects not realized, which
in the end result ln a happy re-unlon.
him day and night. It is the voice of
the dead man—the only one who knew
his guilt—the voice of the man whose
death had long since been recorded
by the State!
If the plot of "The Devil to Pay"
happened in real life Instead of between the pages of the book and on
the screen, it would be tbe sensation
of the age. Its thrills and mystery
would have blazed from the front page
of every newspaper in the country.
It would have baffled the world's
keenest brains. Psychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists and psychoanalysts would have tried to explain
with their pet theories. Ameatuer
ouija board operators and professional
mediums would have claimed it as
evidence of life after death and spirit
communication. The police would
have admitted the mystery unfathomable.
"The Devil to Pay" keeps the spectators in a trance of wonderment until very near the end—Just before the
most amazing denouement ever put on
the screen.
WOMAN AND HER CLOTHES
In "The Devil to Pay," Robert
Brunton's sensational mystery drama,
Frltzl Brunette, the piquant little
beauty who plays the feminine role,
appears in an array ot fashionable
attire that will both amaze and delight feminine votaries of fashion.
She wears seven complete changes
of costume, each cleverly and harmoniously conceived. The entire
wardrobe, from hand-worked shoes to
elaborate hats, was designed by Fritzi
herself and cost in the neighborhood
ot {5000.
Miss Brunette Is very partial to new
embroidery and displays much of it
on suits and hats.
"JIGGS AND THE SOCIAL
LION"
"THE DEVIL TO PAY"
The millions who faithfully follow
tbe Inimitable comics in the hundreds
of newspapers ail over the land do
not have to be told what that it means
when Jiggs takes a whirl* at the
society game.
Johnny Ray, the famous comedian,
will appear on Tuesday evening next
In "Jiggs and the Social Lion," adapted from Geo. McManus famous story,
"Bringing Up Father." Everyone will
want to see this hilarious production.
FILMING OF BATTLE
WITH A "KILLER" SHARK
The wonders of the motion picture
camera never cease! The latest remarkable photographical feat to be
accomplished by a resourceful cameraman is the filming of a spectacular
battle between a man and a "killer"
shark many feet below the ocean's
surface, which appears in "The Cup
of Hate," a Thomas H. Ince special
production which is shortly to make
Its appearance.
The shark was captured after
long quest in the tropical waters off
Mazatlan, Mexico, while the screen
star whose skill and daring made the
scenes possible Ib Hobart Bosworth,
famous for his characterizations of sea
types.
These vivid scenes of a death struggle beneath the waves were photographed off Catallna Island. Tbe
cameraman was located within a specially constructed diving bell, which
could be rapidly moved from one point
of vantage to another.
"BREWSTER'S MILLIONS"
Laughs Crowd Each Other Very
Swiftly When "Fatty" Arbuckle Appear in Picture
"Brewster's Millions," which has
convulsed the thousands of readers of
what is perhaps the most popular
novel ever written by George Barr
McCutcheon, threw other thousands of
playgoers into spasms ot laughter
when it was presented on the stage.
With the Indescribably wider range
of posibllities offered by the screen,
this 'Tatty" Arbuckle vehicle becomes
a veritable expression of hilarity.
The story is one of pure comedy romance. It has been embellished highly in the screen version by the Inclusion of a number ot incidents that appear in neither the novel or the play,
with the result that the production
has a far greater comedy value than
either of its forerunners. These additions are of such a character that
only one living comedian can put
across—"Fatty" Arbuckle.
It is the story of Monte Brewster
who is left fatherless at the tender
age of two years. "Fatty" permits no
substitute to do the hard work ln his
plays, and this Ib no exception. He
appears In person as the Infant.
His two grandfathers quarrel as to
how the boy, a promising and lusty
youngster, should be brought up, bo
that, when he is five years of age, bis
mother's patience ls exhausted, and
she tells the grandfathers that she
wlll bring up her child ln ber own
way, just as she pleases, without Interference from either of them. Monte
himself, too young to realize the import of his mother's decision, plays
artlessly with the usual toys ot the
ordinary five-year-old child, and little reckons what the tuture has in
store for him. The grandfathers give
it up as a bad Job and wash their hands
of responsibility for his up-bringing—
all of whcih Ib a good thing for the
youngster.
When he ls twenty-five Monte (still
Fatty" himself) who is now an
orphan, struggles along on a slim
salary as a clerk in a steamship
office.
After a series of incidents in which
his poverty is accentuated, and his efforts to make both ends meet take on
an extremely humorous aspect to the
audience, it comes about that Grandfather Brewster offers to make a gentleman ot his grandson, and presents
him with a million dollars.
The other grandfather makes a
counter proposition to Monte, to take
him into his business as an active
partner, and give him five million
dollars, if at the end of the.year he is
absolutely broke. How he carries out
this compact, spends tbe million and
experiences the strangest tricks of
Fate, rounds out the story in an hour
and a half of riotous laughter.
"Brewster's Millions" will be shown
at the Ilo-llo Theatre on Saturday of
next week.
WHY NOT ALL SHOWS?
A Drama of a Society Leader
Who Led a Double Life, Pitting God Against the Devil
Mystery and adventure plays are
coming into vogue. That Is the opinion of Robert Brunton, producer of
the year's photodramatlc sensation
"The Devil to Pay," released by Pathe
and coming to the Ilo-llo Theatre on
Tuesday night of next week.
"For the past two years," says the
producer, "as a logical aftermath of
the war, picture-goers have reveled
ln the novelty of strange philosophy,
ouija boards, mediums and weird
cultism. Now reaction has set in.
The public is reverting to simpler
themes, and the most popular of these
Is the old-time mystery drama."
"The Devil to Pay," adapted from
Frances Nimmo Greene's novel, is a
striking embodiment of Mr. Brunton's
theory. It Is a powerful mystery
drama of a political intrigue, packed
with suspense, thrills and unique
situations.
The leading banker of a small city
commits a felony and causes an innocent employe to be sent to the gallows in his place. With the man officially hung, the banker believes himself safe from detection and begins to
enjoy life with his old abandon. Then
a weird voice calls him over the tele
phone, whispers ln hla house, haunts
If the city bas the right to censor
moving pictures before being shown,
why not have a board to examine the
travelling "legit" shows before allowing the public to see them? The cases
are perfectly analogous and parallel.

IRON SINKS
A man saw an advertisement the
other day In a store window, as follows: "Iron Sinks." Feeling happier
than usual, he looked In and told the
storekeeper that he knew iron sank.
"Yes," replied the man, "and time
flies, wine vaults, and music stands,
Niagara Falls, sheep runs, and the
whole world goes round, trade returns
and  ."   But at this point the guy
bolted, to reappear a moment afterwards; putting his head round the
shop door he cried: "Yes, I know, and
marble busts!"

A special Cecil B. De Mille
production
Forbidden  Fruit
At a target practice the captain
swaggered up to the latest recruit,
"See here," he said, "this thing is a
rifle. Here is the barrel, and there's
the stock. You slip the cartridge in
here. Now you put the weapon to your
shoulder. These little things on the
barrel are the sights. When you have
taken accurate aim, pull this little
thing, which is the trigger. Now, remember what I have told you. Spruce
up and look more like a soldier. What
are you ln civil life? A clerk, I suppose?"
"No, sir," was the reply; "I am a
gunsmith."
IF YOU HATE A FRIEND WORTH
LOVING
It you have a friend worth loving,
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow.
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend—till he is dead?
It you hear a song that thrills you,
Sung by any child of song,
Praise it.  Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long.
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?
If you hear a prayer that moves you
By Its humble, pleading tone,
Join It.   Do not let the seeker
Bow before its God alone.
Why should not your brothers share
The strength of "two or three' in
prayer?
If you see tbe hot tears falling
From a brother's weeping eyes,
Share them. And by kindly abarlng
Own our kinship in tha skies.
Why should any one be glad
When a brother's heart ie sad?
If a silvery laugh goes rippling
Through the sunshine on his face,
Share it—'Tie the wise man's saying—
For both grief and Joy a place.
There's health and  goodness  ln the
mirth
When an honest laugh has birth.
If your work is made more easy
By a friendly helping hand,
Say so.   Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word ot cheer?
Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go-
Leave them. Trust the Harvest Giver;
He will make each seed to grow.
So, until the happy end,
Your life shall never lack a friend.

Brewster had to squander that million dollars in a year. But his fool bets always

Not a Single Permit Has Been
Applied for in Cumberland
—Little Interest.
The following communication has
been received by Mayor MacDonald in
connection with the coming into op
erntion of the Government Liquor Act
on Wednesday next.
Very little interest seems to be taken
In the subject that stirred British
Columbia to the depths when thc
referendum was taken. Up to the
time of going to press not a single
permit has been applied for locally
Mr. John Baird, Government Agent, has
full supplies on hand but purchasers
are lacking. It begins to look as
though the Liquor Control Board will
have to offer some inducements by
way of An Opening Sale or some such
method if they wish to sell many permits.
No information has been received
as to how or where liquor ls to be
purchased locally. However, this
Is not worrying the moderationists as
no doubt they will be able to scare up
a llltle reviver in case of need.
The letter from the Liquor Control
Board rends as follows:
Victoria, June 1st, 1921.
To the Mayor and Chairman   of   the
Board of Police Commissioners.
Dear Sir,—By proclamation dated
the 2Sth day of May, 1921, tho "Government Liquor Act" comes into operation on the 15th instant.
I wish to draw your attention to
two of thc most Important provisions
of the Act.
(1) From nnd after midnight of the
14th of June Instant, it is un-
lawtul for anyone In British Columbia, other than a Government vendor, to sell liquor to any
person.
(2) From and after said date It Is
unlawful for anyone ln British
Columbia, other than a government vendor, to sell or deal in
any liquor known and described
as "beer" or "near-beer" or by
any other name whatever commonly used to describe malt or
brewed  liquor.
The Board Is well aware of existing
conditions with respect to the unlawful sale of liquor and the trade that
has been carried on In beer and ncar-
hoer, and I wish you would be good
enough to see that instructions are
given your officers to warn all hotels,
bars, cafes, cabarets and soft drink
places and any other place where
beer or near-beer has been sold In the
past, that the sale ot beer or near-
beer must cease on and nfler thc 14th
instant.
I draw your attention to section 4-1
of the act, which prohibits any person
engaged in the business of selling
non-Intoxicating beverages to keep or
hove with his stock of such beverages
or on his business premises .any
liquor, as defined by the Government
Liquor Act.
I also draw your attention to section 45 of the act, which prohibits the
owner or occupier ol' any huilding permitting any sign displaying Ihe words
"bar," "bar-room," "saloon," "tavern,"
"wines, beer, or liquors," or words of
like import, upon the outside or kept
up or near to, or to he otherwise displayed from the huilding or any shop
or room therein.
The Board relies on the co-operation
of all police officers, municipal and
provincial, ln the strict enforcement
of the new act, and will at all times
be pleased to assist you iu carrying
out and upholding the law.
Yours truly,
LIQUOll CONTROL BOARD.
