Good News
For Cricketers
The secretary of the Cumberland
Cricket club is in receipt of a com- j
munication from Mr. Victor Eccles,
the well known Vancouver cricketer,,
asking if it would be possible for the
local club to arrange two or three
fixtures about thc end of June. Mr.
Eccles in his communication says he
has been approached by a number of
Vancouver players with a view to
bringing a team to tour the northern
portion of the Island from June 89th
to July 5th. The local secretary has
replied to Mr. Eccles and has set
aside tho time suggested in the communication for games with the Vfln-
couverites. Dean Quainton will be
in Cumberland on March the 11th
and it is quite possible that games
•will be arranged with the Dean for
his Victoria cricketers. The Cowichan club will also he in Cumberland
the early part of the season and possibly Chemainus. Cumberland's opening game will very likely bo against
Nanaimo in the Hub city as was the
case last year.

Welsh Children
Were Entertained
Cumberland Welsh Society entertained the children of members and |
thetr little friends at a jolly banquet
and dance in the Cumberland hall on j
Saturday evening. It is annually the j
custom for the children to celebrate [
St. David's Day in the same manner
as their seniors. About 70 young I
folks sat down to a bounteous spread!
and the energetic committee of ladies
of the society attended to their wants.
Then followed a very interesting im-1
promptu program of songs, dances and
recitations given in a very creditable
manner by many of the youthful
guests. Harry Jackson, who is annually in demand at these events, was as
usual, the hit of the evening. His
comic songs, impersonations nnd clever!
stunts kept the company in roars of j
laughter, the continued applause show- j
ing in no uncertain manner the popu- j
larity of the entertainer. Dancing, to!
music supplied in snappy manner by
Jimmy Walker's Sunnysidc orchestra,
and into which the children and their
adult friends present joined with zest,]
rounded out a merry evening, bringing!
to a close one of the finest celebrations I
of St. David's Day yet held. !
In addition to the above mentioned;
artists entertaining the children, several of the kiddies themselves were t
prevailed upon to do a turn or two. J
Amongst those adding to tlie eve-1
ning's enjoyment might be mention-1
ed Dorothy Malpass, who danced the
highland fling, Annie Warren, recited, whilst songs were rendered by
little Miss Ellis, Ray Rees, Billy Bu-1
chnnan, Alice Jackson, Kitty Mal-]
pass and Delia Williams. Violet Rob-;
ertson and Kitty Jackson delighted
the assembly with a well executed
dance.
CN.RTto Come

A.   E.  Warren,  Vice-Prea.  Western
Lines,   Makes   Announcement
Nanaimo, March 3.—That the Can
adinn National Railways had decided
to come into Nanaimo was announced to local Rotarlans by Mr. A. E.
Warren, vice-president of the western division with headquarters at
Winnipeg.
Mr. Warren, with Mr, T. B. Chap-
pell, superintendent of tbe B. C. division, visited Nanaimo and, being a
fellow Rotarlan, Mr. Warren was invited to address an evening meeting
of the club.
Mr. Warren, according to a well-
known Rotation, concluded his address by saying, "I guess you wonder what brings us to Nanaimo and
you no doubt will be interested to
know that the C.N.R. h-is definitely
decided to come here, Nanaimo being
one of the few big cities in Canada
our company has not entered.
Just how and when has not yet
been determined."
DISTRICT   CYMRODORION
SOCIETY   OBSERVES
CELEBRATION
In honor of St. David, patron sai.it
of Wales, the Cumberland and district Welsh Society held a monster
celebration in the Ilo-Ilo hall on Friday last when upwards of 400 people attended a concert given by the
Lewis Conceit Party of Nanaimo.
The same procedure ns in former
years was observed with the concert
at 6.30, supper immediately afterwards ( followed in turn by a huge
dance.
The big Ilo-Ilo Theatre was comfortably tilled as the newly organized
orchestra of Mr. J. Walker opened
the proceedings with a couple of well
rendered marches.
The Rev. E. O. Robathan acted as
chairman and in his opening remarks
said that "the Welsh Society of Cumberland nnd District is to be congratulated on the thoroughness with
which arrangements for the annual
affair were made, catering to the
mind, body and soul. A feast of
music for the mind, a banquet and
dance for the body and for the last
four years had prevailed upon a parson to act as chairman to look after
their souls." The chairman then
called on the concert party for their
opening number. The programme
was rendered as printed, thc artists
being very generous, encores being
numerous. The programme: (a)
Come to the Fair—(Martin), (b)
Profundo Basso—(Bliss), Mrs. Muir
Miss Lythgoe, Messrs. Husband and
Lewis; Slave Song—(Del Riego)
Miss Doris Lythgoe; Flow Gently,
Devn—(Parry), Messrs. Husband
and Lewis; violin—Adoration—(Bor- i
owsld) Mr. Gabriel Brown; The
Swallows—(Cowcn), Mrs. Geo. Muir
(a) Allan Water—(arranged by Elliott Brown), (b) The Keel Row—
(arranged by Dunhill), Mrs. Muir.
Miss Lythgoe, Messrs. Husband and
Lewis; Welsh Folk Songs—Mr. Tom
Lewis; The Keys of Heaven—Mrs.
G. Muir and Mr. R. Husband; The
Little Damozel—(Novello), Miss Doris Lythgoe; Fantasia on Welsh Songs
— (Fletcher), Mrs. Muir, Miss Lythgoe, Messrs. Husband and Lewis;
Mountain Lovers—(Squire), Mrs. R.
Husband; violin—Homage a l'amitie
— (Dancla), Mr. G. Brown; My Hero
—from Chocolate Soldier, (Straus),
Mrs. G. Muir; John Peel—(West),
Mrs. Muir, Miss Lythgoe, Messrs
Husband and Lewis.
Most of the members of the concert party were no strangers to Cumberland having appeared here on numerous occasions and on their appearance on the stage on Friday were
accorded an enthusiastic welcome.
Encores, as stated were numerous
and the artists, evidently being
aware that several Scotchmen were
present In the hall .rendered ns encores scotch airs. That these renderings were very popular goes without saying and "Sandy" Walker in
his exuberance called loudly "gie us
another like that."
Miss Doris Lythgoe, who possesses
a pleasing contralto voice was heard
to advantage in her solos and Mrs.
George Muir was n distinct hit with
her solos, and in company with Mr.
R. Husband rendered two very fine
duets. Mr. Tom Lewis, an old favorite of Cumberland audiences pleased greatly with his Welsh Folk Songs
The excellent programme was topped
ofl' by the brilliant violin solos of Mr.
Gabriel Brown, a young man who we
venture to say will go far in his chosen profession. His "Adoration" by I
Borowskl was n gem which was followed by an encore, Beethoven'**
"Minute in G" being rendered with
great feeling. At the conclusion of
the concert, the chairman paid some |
very complimentary remarks to thc |
pianist for his excellent accompaniments ,the audience showing appreciation In prolonged applause. The]
during of lhe" National Anthem of
Wales and "God Save the King"
brought to a close a most successful
concert.
It was half past nine before the
concert was over, many people not
attending the dinner on account of
•lie lateness, claiming nine-thirty was
far too late lo do full justice to the
excellent repast prepared by the:
Welsh .Society. Although many stay-,
ed away it required two sittings to
take care of the number. It was
said that 28-1 iat down at tho first
sitting nnd ahout 70 at the second
sitting. The supper was held in the,
Cumberland hall and the tables presented quite a gay appearance beau-;
tifully decorated with daffodils and,
loaded with good things to eat, not
forgetting the Welsh faggots.
This part of the annual celebration calls for n lot of hard work and
the committee responsible is to bo,
congratulated on the thoroughness
with which the supper was conduct-:
ed, not a hitch occurring and the,
two hundred and eighty guests being!
nerved with dispatch made one think]

Re-entering private practice in
1912, with Neil McKay of Victoria,
he was appointed solicitor of the Union of British Columbia Municipalities in which he was the moving spirit

It was Mr. McDiarmid who took to
the Privy Council in London the celebrated case of the Bishop of Vancouver Island versus the City of Victoria. Acting for the Bishop of Vancouver Island in the suit, he established the right of churches in British Columbia to exemption from taxation.
Later he was counsel for Grand
Forks city in a power rate fight with
the West Kootenay Power & Light
Co., which finally brought into being
the present control of power rates
by the Provincial Water Board. The

coming fiscal year and represents
added revenues required for the pay

A LAWYER PASSES
rHE XAME of Frederick A. McDiarmid, who died
last night, is written indelibly into municipal law
of British Columbia as his personality was impressed on the entire municipal government of this province for a score of yers. As .solicitor and dominating
figure in the Union of B. C. Municipalities, as counsel in
many of the most important municipal ca lea in our
courts, he was associated perhaps more continuously
than any other member of his profession with the development of our pn.-ent system of city administration.
Bached by the municipalities through their union, he
virtually drew the groundwork of the present Municipal
Act, covering all municipalities but Vancouver, and
largely influencing the development of the Vancouver
Charter, lt was under bis leadership and through his
outstanding grasp of the whole theory and operation of
municipal government that the municipalities succeeded
in securing redistribution of provincial revenues in their
favor after tbe war. It was hc, too, who at first single-
handed and then with provnlee-wide bucking, fought
through the case which ended with the control of power
rates by the Provincial Water Board. A scholar, a
lawyer and fighter, be left behind him a good record of]
constructive work for the people of British Columbia's
cities. —Daily Province.
HUMIDITY IN HOUSE HEATING
rHE AIR in Canadian houses during a large
portion ol' the artificial heating season is,I
with few exceptions, drier than that of the!
driest desert. This is a fact which Canadians
either do not know or do not appreciate.
House heating is more than the simple process!
of maintaining the indoor temperature at that!
point where one does not t'oel cold. The designers
of present day heating apparatus have done excellent work considered from that standpoint; but;
as a rule, they have neglected to take into account j
the natural law which governs tho relation between aid temperature and air moisture. The result is that, generally speaking, Canadian air during the Winter is excessively dry.
This excessive air dryness is injurious to health
affecting more particularly the respiratory organs|
and the skin. It i.s destructive to woodwork and
furniture, and to clothing and furnishing fabrics.
It also necessitates the maintenance of higher
temperatures for comfort than with air containing adequate moisture.
Many people believe that excessively dry air
conditions are to be to ml only in houses heated
by certain types of heating equipment; also that
such undesirable cor.d,' ions may be remedied by
opening the windows and admitting large quantities oi cold out-door i.i/.
"Humidity in House Heating," a bulletin recently published by the Dominion Fuel Board in
co-operation with the Natural Resources Intelligence Service of the Department of the Interior,
points out that cold a : saturated with moisture
becomes dry on hcatingnot because moisture has
been icmoved, but beca ise of its greatly increased
mouLure capacity at the higher temperature. The
air in houses during the Winter cannot be otherwise than dry, unless provision is made hi the
heating equipment, or iy other means, to satisfy
adequately this inert used moisture capacity.
Moreover the admissioi of large quantities of outdoor air increases to a corresponding extent tho
moisture which must )e supplied for this purpose.
"Humidity in House Healing" discusses briefly
in non-technical language the essential features
of air dryness in house heating—cause, effect, and
remedy, lt explains what is meant by the expression "relative humidity", and points out that,
for health and comfort, indoor relative humidities
of from 40 to 5U per emit should be maintained
throughout the winter, lt shows how a hygrom
eter is used to measura relative humidities, and
points out that the effective control of humidifying equipment upon results as measured by means
of this instrument.
In addition to indicating, in a general way,
various types of humifiers which may be used,
either in conjunction with the heating equipment
or independently, to supply the moisture for
healthful humidification, this bulletin stresses
that fact that the evaporation of a few quarts of
water per day in the average Canadian house during the winter months gives practically no relief
from air dryness. Tlie evaporation of from three
or four to twelve or more gallons per daymay be
necessary, depending upon weather conditions and
\entilation.
The purpose in issuing "Humidity in House
Heating" is not only to further the cause of good
health but to promote the more efficient employment of the fuel used for house heating; since
the fuel used to maintain the high temperature
of 72u for comfort under dry air com);tions may
be used to greater advantage in evaporating the
water for healthful humidification of air at tha
more moderate comfort temperatures so required.
Copies of "Humidity in House Heating' 'may be
obtained fee on request from the Director, Natural Resources Intelligence Service, Department of
the Interior, Ottawa, or from The Dominion Fuel
Hoard also of Ottawa.
be quite constituitional. The dom-
in:on government followed this
course in the sale;; tax, and as the
o.'oviiv.-e has the right to impure di
rect taxation, it is held that then
can be no question of its right u

heard them before, and were heartily
encored, as were also thc recitations
by Mrs. Hall, of Courtenay. After a
bountiful supper served by ladles of

Courtenay Friday last.
Mr. Cromie urged the utmost development of the resources of Canada for Canadians. He said that in

of using pulverized coal successfully
for   internal   combustion   machines.
Mr. Cromie also spoke in favor of

SPECULATION AS TO
METHOD OF COLLECTION
FUEL OIL TAX MAY GO ON
TANKS
Victoria, March 5,—Great interest
is being shown in the announcement
in the budget speech that the fuel
oil tax is to be revived.
Under the inspiration of the Hon.
William Sloan the late government
put a tax on fuel oil several years
ago, but the big transportation companies that were heavy buyers of
fuel refused to pay and subsequent
litigation resulted in a decision by
the privy counsel that thc tax was
ultra vires.
It is understood that the legal department of the government has now
devised a new measure under which
the collection method will be different from that employed in the original act.
It is confidently believed in government circles that the tax as now
to be imposed will be constitutional.
Two objectives for the new tax
were mentioned by Mr. Shelly in his
budget speech. One is the raising of
new revenue, estimated at $550,000
annually. The other is to assist the
coal mining industry which suffers
by the competition of fuel oil.
There is much speculation as to
how the new oil tax is to be collected. There are mysterious rumors
that it is to take the form of a graduated license fee on tanks or other
containers.
It may take the form of n straight
gallonage tax to be added to the
bills of the consumer, others sug-|
gest.    It is believed that this would

Operetta Shown j
The Gaiety theater was crowded
Tuesday last to handle the crowd
which attended the Arthur Somerville
operetta, "Princess Zara", by the Courtenay girls' choir under the direction
of Mrs, M. B. Tribe. Miss M. McKee
was at the piano.
Perhaps   tbe   most   remarkable
feature of so heavy an undertaking as thc mastery of a score such
as  "Zara"  was  thc   fact   that  all
the    principals    were    practically
letter perfect in the long parts assigned to them, and were seldom
at even a momentary loss for the
correct note on their cues.    Even
with all speaking it is unusual for
children to be so well trained, and
with   all   thc  action   set   to   music
such excellence is hardly expected.
Without re-hashing the story it may
be sufficient to say that Kay Moore
was both pretty and effective as thc
Princess and Queen who created such
a furore under the spell of the witches.
Of   course  true  love   prevailed,   and
Prince Florizel as played by Margaret
Inglis   was   made   happy   when   the
Queen fairy hi the person of Evelyn
Blackhall overcame the power of the
hags ruied by Margaret Galloway as
Grewsome,   Frances Moore played the j
old King who started the trouble by j I"

among those officials who believe
that the mental effect of quick
capture ia a powerful deterrent to
crime. With the advent of the telephone, tho morale of law offenders
began to weaken and tho arm of
the authorities was strengthened.
Now comes the automobile as an
accessory in crlmo-chaslng and detection. Ami to It, in various cities
of the States, is being added the
advantage of radio communication
with central headquarters.
The Provincial Police of New
Brunswick arc using n fleet of
Ford sedans for sen ice with out-
posts of the Moncton district with
Police Sergeant Nicholson supervising" their operation.
The total fleet of tho same type
nf ear In use throughout tho Dominion by the Customs-Excise Preventive Service has been increased
recently to 7li. These cars are used
for border patrol work along the
Canadian.Unite States boundary.
Thry are opernted over all kinds of
roads nnd in all kinds of weather
nnd temperatures. Records of performance have caused the service
to standardize on this one type of
Canadian-built car. It is the exper-
ience of police officials in all parts
of the North American continent
that the sedan type of car proves
tlie moit dependable and adaptable
for police needs.
"Shock" Service In Toronto
"Shock troop" service is the use
thnt. Toronto police make of 25
Fords. A car is allocated to each
district station and is in readiness
at all times for cases that demand
quick action.
Chief of Police C. H. Newton, of
Winnipeg, is among those who find
added service in the availability of
police cars,
"The new fast, light car la admirably adapted to police work,"
he writes, adding: "I believe that
before long they will supercede tha
motorcycles which are now belay
used for the purpose of regulating
persons who drive recklessly,"
Close cost statistics were kept on
two Ford sedans used by the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police between
June 2 and August 31, 1929, One
was driven .1955 miles at a cost of
$.0222 a mile and the other 3194
miles at a cost of $.0224 a mils.

In the United States, Detroit and

accustomed to them. Cereals ure introduced into the diet of the infant
before the sixth month; vegetable
juice shortly after. Other fomh, In
small amounts at first are gradually
added. If thi? is done, by the time
the child is two years of age, a pood
start will have been made .
Our likes and dislikes are lnrgoly
n matter of imitation. We begin to
eat oliver- because we see thi t others
eat them with pleasure, that, indeed,
they regard them as a luxui y. The
attitude of the parents to liferent]
foods is largely tbe attitu e their i
children will have. If pare its can-;
not train themselves to eat ind en-:
joy desirable foods, and s i set a
good example, they cannot e :pect to
train their children to do so.
Children want to drink te;" or coffee because they see their parents
drink them with some relis i. Thc
same desire can be cultivate i in the |
child for any foods, through the ex-,
ample shown by the parents.
It should be a fixed rule never to
talk about the food disllto i of a
child when he is present. Refer to
his like"., if something abo.it food
must be discussed, but never to his
dislikes. Such discussions, or thc
display of feelings, even without,
words, fix the dislikes permanently I untll *'. tWck"»"
in the mind of the child.
When a new food is given, there
blamed for their food dislikes. The
parents are whilly responsible. The
child's likes nnd dislikes nre the result of the training which he has
received from his parents, whom,
after all, he did not select. By proper training, it is possible to have
children who like simple, wholesome
foods.

of the engineering bureau of the i
Board of Trade at Hotel Georgia,
Tuesday, when this province was de-1
dared to be the best source in the'
world for pulverized coal, a product'
which is arousing interest as a boat-
ing agent in steam plants.
In an address which was largely
technical, Mr. John Peck, formerly
chief inspector of boilers and machinery for British Columbia, declared he saw a possible cure for the ■
admittedly "sick" coal industry in •
the use of pulverized fuel.
His first point was that steam has
not yet been out-moded as n power'
pi'oducer by either hydro electric
operations or the internal combustion engine; and his second wns that'
steam might be made a much more
economical power agent than it is at
present if thc same scientific information were applied to its use as to
other agents.
Although certain that this province
supplies an amount of suitable fuel
for pulverlzation( and that it can be
u*od in new plants, properly designed, he thought, there were not many
existing plants, using steam, which
can be converted economically from
the use of other fuel to that of pulverized coal. He had found a plant
unsuitable for conversion at Essondale.
Two points which he made in favor of the use of pulverized coal were
that  a  plant  utilizing that fuel  is
"more flexible" in its variations to
demand and and in other matters;
than other kinds of steam plants
nnd that it requires no labor in stoking. One point which he admitted
against thc extension of its use was
that it can not be utilized economically on ship-board because of space
limitations.
Mr. H. B. Muckloston, consulting
engineer, was elected chairman of
the bureau for 1930.
