Cumberland United
Suffer Their First'
Defeat Of Season
Taking the field with a weakened
team and a shuffling of several places
coat Cumberland United their first
defeat this season, when Ladysmith
won a hard game at Nunalnio on
Saturday last by a score nf 3 goals
to 1, Ladysmith scoring 2 goals In the
last few niliiules. A Nanaimo paper,
commenting on the game, said:
The field was dry and fast, and
the first twenty-live minutes was a
fast exhibition, with each team showing up well, and the spectators enjoying every minute. Ladysmith forced I wo corners, but neither one was
converted, although some close plays
resulted. Then Hitchens, who was
playing his uiiial waiting game, well
down on outside left, shot a beauty
over -to Plump, who scored the first
one of the day. With only four minutes of play left in the lirst period.
Chapman came in from way out ami
rushed the ball and goalkeeper before
him, into tlie net. It was not a clean
goal, but was the result of quick
thinking on tho part, of Chapman,
and a misunderstanding between
Monaghan. .Mortimer and the Cumberland goalie, who was not to blame.
This left a one-one score at half
time. Ladysmith took charge of the
play for seven minutes in the second
half, and forced two corners, with
Davis showing up particularly well,
and bringing forth many hursts of
applause from the stand, He. after
fifteen minutes of play, forced Mortimer to concede a third corner, and
as a result two shots were registered against Cumberland's goal, but
Walker fisted botli to safety. Then
play was transferred to lhe Ladysmith goal, and Tait, in saving, was
obliged to tip the ball over the bar,
for a corner for Cumberland. Play
was fast at tbls period, being of the
end-to-end variety, and within one
minute, a corner was conceded by
Mortimer for Ladysmith, and Trotter shot the sphere through, but it
did not count, as three men were
push'ng the goal-keeper before the
shot was taken, and the whistle went
for a foul just as the ball left Trotter's font. Play was, from then on.
almost entirely in charge of Ladysmith. who were pressing, and doing
everything but score, but It was not
until four minutes from the end,
when everybody Iiad settled hack for
an overtime period, that they succeeded In registering. Chapman took
a solo play down the side-line, and
got control of the ball within three
feet of thc corner-flag, where he was
unchecked. He took a deliberate cross
to the center of the goal-mouth, and
Davis, coming in like a cannon-ball,
connected with bis head, and scored
Ladysmith's second goal. Even then,
however, the game was not won, as
It looked possible for either team to
score before full time, and tills proved to be the case, for, just two minutes before tull time Chapman took a
pass from Rafter, and scored Ladysmith's cleanest goal of the day. making the score three-one, and providing
a resting place for the nexl year
for the Davenport Shield in Ladysmith.

When the 1926 council for the City
of Cumberland holds Its first meeting
In January It will find In the treasury
an amount of considerably over four
thousand dollars with which to commence lhe New Year, At the old
council's last meeting 1111 Monday,
December -'lsl. lt was found that the
finance committee had 1111 amount of
I ovcr two thousand dollars un hand,
and this wns swelled 10 lhe four
j thousand mark by the city's share of
I the liquor and parl-muluel profits for
the second half of the year, which
I were received by cheque early this
week.
,    The   cheque,   as   received   by   tbe
city clerk, was made up im follows:
Liquor   Profits     $2,973.60
Pari-.Mutiiel   Profits         437.54
Total cheque   $3,411.14
Two-sevenths   of  the   $2,973.60,   or
$849.60.  goes   to   the    local    School
I Board,  giving  that    body    approxl-
1 mntoly seven   thousand   dollars   with
I which to commence ihe year.
j    Last year file profits were distrlhu-
! ted according to the respective pop-
; illations of tlie various cities hut this
year Ihe system was changed and the
profits nre now being divided according   lo  the   school   population.   This
explains  why the  larger cities such
as  Vancouver and  New  Westminster
experienced a decrease In the amount
of  their  cheques  and   smaller  cities
such  as  Cumberland  aro  finding an
increase.   An  interesting  comparison
of the  total   liquor  and   pari-mutuel
profits received by tiie City of Cumberland  during  Hie   years   1924   and
1925 follows:

P.M.  P     803.32 437.54
Totals   2,637.50 4,470.69
Despite the fact that this year's
pari-mutuel profits are considerably
lower than those ot lust year, the
1925 total shows an increase over
that of 1924 of approximately two
thousand dollars, or. lo be exact,
$1,933.13.

NEW YEAR
GRATITUDE
If you will look about you at
this, the commencement of the
New Year, you are sure to find
cause for gratitude. Use your eyes and you
will see children thinly clad in rags, you will see
men of limited education struggling to earn
enough to keep their families together, you will
see women taking home another woman's wash,
you will see old men bent by years and crippled
by disease, you will see many handicapped humans struggling uncomplainingly to keep up with
the procession. Look in another direction, perhaps not in Cumberland but in thc larger cities,
and you will see a lady in furs riding in a car
with a pet dog on her lap. You will see men
smoking high-priced cigars who are facing the
dawning of the new year with doubt as lo their
ability to meet maturing obligations. You will
see the idle children of the rich dancing to the
syncopated rhythm of a jazz orchestra aud rushing pell mell to certain misery and death. Look
upon them all. Then settle down to work and a
determination to live within your income and
you will have gratitude in your heart for all of
God's blessings.
FEAR     It has been said that any man or any
woman of average intelligence who was
entirely   without   fear   would   become a world
ligure.   We believe that is true.
The reason why most of us do not accomplish
more in this life is because we are afraid. The
fear of failure holds most ol' us back from even
attempting the things that would certainly lead
to success.
Fear, dread, superstition! What an important part these things play in the life of all of us.
We are afraid of the water or thunder storms,
or the dark, or cats, or the dentist, or crowds, or
the number 13, or heights, or open spaces, or of
hold-up men. It doesn't matter how clever or
intelligent or courageous we are, either. You
can always start trouble with ridiculous fears.
Many of our physical ailments are due to fear.
We are afraid we will catch cold, we suffer from I
infected teeth  because we dread to go to the i
dentist, we will not start on a long journey or1
begin an important undertaking on Friday.
Somebody ought to compile a list of the child
ish fears of great men. It would be ridiculous,
pathetic, and comforting to the rest of us. For,
of course, it would be exactly like a list of the
childish fears of ordinary men.
You can't make good, no matter how clever
you are, until you so far conquer the fear of failure that you can use your God-given powers. As
long as your attention is centered on fear, your
mind is hampered. The salesman who is afraid
he won't sell, can't sell. The invalid who is
afraid he will never recover, can't get well. The
driver of an automobile who is afraid he will hit
something, does hit something. And the girl
who is afraid she won't be attractive, isn't attractive.     "Be ye not afraid!"
Earnest moral principle is the balance-wheel
of character.     It regulates and keeps the whole
man in order.
*****
Even the wisest are long in learning that
there is no better work for them than the bit
God puts into their hands.
*****
A better thing than "hitching your wagon
to a star," is to put your hand in the hand that
moves the star.
*****
The common opportunity comes, as the divin-
est opportunity in the whole history of the world
came, cradled in obscurity.
*****
There are few things impossible in themselves
and the application necessary to make them succeed is more often wanting than the means.       |
*****
Kind looks, kind words, kind acts, and warm
hand shakes—these are the secondary means of
grace when men are in trouble, and are fighting
their unseen battles.
*****
It is a perfectly safe proposition that without
the thoughtfulness, which is otherwise named
tact, no one can find the fullest measure of success and pleasure in life.
*****
He who walks through life with an even tern
per and a gentle patience, patient with himself,
patient with others, patient with difficulties and
crosses—he has an every-day greatness beyond
that which is won in battle or chanted in great
cathedrals.
*****
It is the little words you speak, the little
thoughts you think, the little things you do or
leave undone, the little moments you waste or
use wisely, the little temptations which you yield
to or overcome—the little things of every day
that are making or marring your future life.

IMMIGRATION   HUMAN"  SAYS
R.  PRESIDENT-. SIR THOMAS
WHITE PAYS HIM HIGH
TRIBUTE
A ddressing the Asaoclated
** Boards of Trade banquet
at Winnipeg recently, E W.
Bcutty, chairman und president
of the Canadian Pacific Railway, said that one of the most
significant facts of the conference was the desire of men from
all parts of Canada to discuss
the country's problems from an
economic and national point of
view, free fruin the bewildering
influence of political partisanship. "This," Mr. Beatty said,
''leads me to the inevitable conclusion that the question of Confederation on the principles of
national unity which guided the
fathers in establishing it cannot be solved by politicnl manipulation, but only by that mental attitude which comes from understanding and is tho result of honest
education.
In order to achieve national prosperity, Mr. Beatty advocated an
extensive immigration policy to supply the man power necessary for
the "largest undeveloped country in the world." "If 1 had any suggestion tn make in respect to this question," continued the president, "I
would suggest that we take it out of the field of statistics and place It
in the field of human relatione. We are apt to forget that the people
■who come to our shores are not so many hundreds or thousands of
British or Continentals with or without settlers' effects. They are human
beings, members of families who have torn themselves up from old homes,
homes In some cases centuries old, to come nnd live in Canada, to b*
neighbours, if we are willing to be neighbourly, and to become good
citizens if we only hold out a welcoming hand.
"We realize how great the wrench must be when we learn that
some bring with them a handful of earth so that when the time comes
for them to die in Canada it may be scattered ovcr their coffins. I wonder how many Canadians, who have made the trek to the United States,
have ever thought to carry with them a handful of Canadian soil. No
immigration scheme for Canada can ever achieve success unless dut
allowance is made for such human factors."
On the same occasion Sir Thomas White, former Federal Minister
of Finance, paid a high tribute to Mr. Beatty. Sir Thomas said that he
hnd always looked upon Mr. Beatty as a representative Canadian who
typified the qualities which are to be found in true Canadians. Mr.
Beatty had carved his own niche In Canadian affairs and had made
his own way In the world as in the manner of Canadians. As president
of the Canadian Pacific Railway, Mr. Beatty occupied one of the highest
positions in the Dominion and was absolutely unspoiled by his enormous
success, nnd Sir Thomas liked to think that in this the former was also
a characteristic Canadian
Referring to the improvement of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the
former Finance Minister pointed out that the history of the Dominion
and the Company were Intertwined and could not be disassociated The
Canadian Pacific Railway had stood as the type of exemplary Canadian
enterprise and courage in the face of apparently Insurmountable obstacles.
Sir Thomas also commented favorably on the good work the Canadian
Pacific Railway had done during the Great War, and later on in going
(head with work, at the request of the Government, In order to give
employment to soldiers who were returning afttr tht war, . mm%&MM%E,

ARTICLE No. 6
It haa often been pointed out in these
articles that one of the best ways to
team auction is to study examples of
"What not to do," either in the bidding
or play. The other night the writer was
playing at one of the well-known New
York ca"rd clubs, supposedly with high-
grade players, and yet observed -ome
very fine examples of "What not to
do. ' For example:
Hearts — K, 7, 6 	
Clubs —K, J, 9, 8, 4 :     Y
Diamonds —K, 10,8,6,5 :A B:
Spades — none :      Z      :
No score, first game. Z dealt and bid
one no trump, A passed, Y bid two
spades and B and Z passed, Here's
where A started to give a fine exhibition
of "What not to do." He didn't stop to
figure that his hand was worth prob.ibly
three^ tricks if spades were trumps, so
that if his partner could take only one
trick, they would save the game. He
eaily bid three clubs whicii Y doubled.
B and Z passed and A now decided to
try three diamonds. This also ^ns
doubled and the contract was set for
400 points. Study this hand, the bidding
and the score, and learn "what not to
do" under similar circumstances.
Here's another hand where a faJriy
food player fell down:
and compare notes with analysis that
will be given in the next article.
_ Thc same player had a Bomewhat
similar problem a few hands later. He
also fell down on this hand so let's see
what our readers will do. It is a fine
example of "What not to do."
Hearts — 5
Clubs —9, 8, 6,3
Diamonds — 7, 6, 2
Spades — A, K, 8, 7, 6
 Hearts— K, 6, 2
Clubs—K, Q, J, 4
Diamonds — K, -S
Spades —0, 10,4, 2

B:
No score, rubber -game, Z dealt and bid
four hearts, A bid five diamonds and
ail passed, Y opened t'ie king ofspades
and U's hand, the dummy's in this instance, was placed on thc tabic. Z
played the three of Bpadci and A thc
five. What should Y now play and why?
Reason tliis out and try not to da what
Y did.
In thc following hand ihe most inexcusable mistake of the evening was
made;
B:
Hearts — 6
Clubs — K, Q, 9, 8
Diamonds — 7
Spades — A, Q.J, 0, 7, 6,2
No score, rubber game. '/. dealt and bid
four spades (a line preemptive bid, by
the way). A doubled, Y pus d and U
bid five hearts, Z and A now passed
and Y doubled, When nil paswd. what
should Z have opemd? Thin!: this over

No score, lirst game* Z dealt and bid
one heart, A and Y passed and li bid
one spade. Z and A passed and Y bid
two hearts, The find bid was four
spades due to the fact thai Y raised the
heart bid twice more. He alio doubled
four spades, What should Z open? He-
fore you decide, think it over carefully
and don't make the mistake that Z did.
His opening was a tine example of
"What not to do."

Clubs are trumps and 7. Is In the lead.
How can YZ win five of the eight tricks
against any defense?
Answer to Problem No. 4
Z should lead the fourof hearts and Y win
the trick with the ace.Yshould then lead
thedeuceof spades which Z should t ni nip
with the deuce of clubs, Z should then
lead the king ofdiamondsand follow with
the deuce of diamonds, which trick A
must win. Whatever A now leads YZ
must win two trump tricks. If A leads
a diamond or a spade Z trumps nnd
leads the eight of hearts, His queen of
clubs must now make. If A should lead
a trump, Z must still win two trump
tricks. Played in this way, YZ must
win five of the eight tricks against aay
defense. It should be noted that tr.s
lead of the kins of d tamo i-da by '/. at
trick one and the lend n! tin: «.!•. uca uf
diamonds at trick ■'■ n [g a Iokt, A
Bhould lead the nine of h« rtiwhldiY
must win. The lc i by Y ol.. hoatt or a
spade is a loser, [May- I in this way, YZ
must lose four tricks, It should ulso ba
noted that'/. may first play the I..eg of
diamonds and then lead the four of
hearts and lei V lead the deuce ol
spades. When he trumps thc spade Z
should then had thedeuceof diamonds,
obtaining the same rt ->ii!t as iu the correct solution given. It is a tri. ky problem and Bhould lie carefully noted, All
of thc variations given should bc played
out. FRIDAY, JANUARY 1. 1926.

Dumper crops and good prices huve given western
*-* farmers an opportunity to visit scenes of boyhood
days. Britishers who took up farm lands in the Canadian West are taking advantage of the good season
to sail back home for a view of familiar but long
hidden sights and faces. Every east-going train carries scores of happy men and women bound for the
Old Country.
Here and there among the surging passengers getting ready to change from train to boat are the eager,
expectant faces of easily recognizable Londoners.
They are going back after years of toil and hardship
finally rewarded with substantial success. Every one
of these men carry a picture of London in their
hearts. Every minute seems a day on the long journey
across the Atlantic. But soon they will see once more
the gay night life on tho Strand, mingle with the
crowds, rub elbows with their countrymen, join first
night audiences at theatres, tour the city in clanking
taxis, appease the gnawing soul-hunger with one more
-walk around Piccadilly and a stroll through Leicester
Square.
Christmas and New Ye»r in London! What
visions these exiled sons of England had conjured
up in the long, lean years before they wrested from
the Boil their means of return. And now, to be there
again. Of course, it is only for a while. But they
are able to return to their respective places in the
•■/heme of affairs in their adopted country and work
with increased enthusiasm to make their lands yield
tho maximum. They are better citliem for they will
endeavour to make thit Canada the itauncheit and
most prosperous link in the British Empire.
Every prosperous farmer who returns to Great
Britain is the best advertisement that the Dominion
of Canada could possibly have. Every one of these is
a booster, proving conclusively that men with the
determination to work can and do win out in this
country Every westerner is directly or indirectly, a
disciple of the creed that "Happiness Must Be
Earned."
Travellers who Intended to reach the Old Country
for Christmas came on the Imperial special from tht
West in time to board the Canadian Pacific linen
"Metaguma" and "Melita" al Saint John. N.B. About
two hundred and fifty passengers crossed in time
to get the S.S. "Melita" on December 10, while three
hundred and fifty Canadians arrived in Saint John
for the S.S. "Metngama," sailing on December 11.
In these groups were passengers intended for various parts of the British Isles, one distinctive family
group being Mrs. George Patterson, of Vancouver,
with her four smiling Canadian-born children. Snapped aboard the first Canadian Pacific holiday special
as the train passed through Winnipeg, Mrs. Patterson
said she was paying a visit to her native heath in
Scotland at Road Meeting, Carluke, Lanarkshire, for
the first time since she came to Canada, twelve years
ago.
The youngest member of the party, a little girl
in a checked gown, wanted to know what it was all
about. She confided in mother afterwards that she
liked photographers only they seemed to be altogether
too "bossy." This indicates a fine career as a moving
picture star,

IJnder a glorious sky late in No-
^ vember an expectant group of
distinguished Canadians were gath-
ered for the unveiling of un ornamental cairn at Gonzales Heights,
Victoria, B.C., commemorating the
early British and Spanish navigators wi*.n explored the Pacific coast
In the eighteenth century. The ceremony also marked the sixty-seventh
anniversary of the existence of the
province of British Columbia.
Ono hundred and thirty years have,
on  t'ne Tahlft.
flown by since Captain Charles William Barktey, in command of the
picturesque British trading vessel
the Imperial Eagle, sailed up the
straits of Juan de Fuca searching
for the mythical Northwest passage
which would provide an alternative
route from Atlantic to Pacific and
also the greatly desired short cut to
the Indies.
The ceremony of the unveiling of
the cairn was Impressive, as befitted
a public demonstration ot gratitude

to pioneer geographers and explorers. Stepping forward proudly, Captain Robert E. Bnrkley, great-grandson of the intrepid explorer, drew
aside the draped flags of Britain and
Castile, emblems of the glamour of
picturesque days of another era, ro-
vonling the cairn with its modest
bronzo* tablet,
Among the other prominent participants in the ceremony were: John
W. Dolby, of Seattle, Vice-Consul for
Spain; Hon. Walter C. Nicholl, Lieu-
tenant Governor of British Columbia; His Honor, Judge Howay, of
New Westminster, President of the
British Columbia H'storical Association; Reeve Anscomb, representing
Oak Bay Municipality; also members of the family of Sir James
Douglas, first governor of British
Columbia, and of Captain Willium
Henry McNeill, who made a report
to the Hudson's Bay Company in
1331 upon the suitability of the present site of the City of Victoria for
the erection of a fort.
In his opening address, Hon. Walter Nicholl referred to the great
debt owed the pioneers who had
willingly dared all in their voyage
of discovery. The speaker also reviewed the great potential resources
of the new land they had taken possession of on the Western rim of
the World.
In the course of the proceeding-*
credit was repeatedly given the Victoria Branch of the British Columbia Historical Association to whom,
through the efforts of C. C. Pembr-r-
ton and others, the amassing of so
much historical detail was due,
