The Government proposes to create a new judicial county on Vancouver Island to be known as Comox
County. The bill passed its second
reading in the legislature Monday evening. It is provided in the bill that
tt stall, If lt becomes law, come into
effect by proclamation of the Lleu-
tenant-Govermor-tn-Councll.
Hon. A. M. Manson explained the
Counties Definition Act as one to create a new county of Comox on Vancouver Island by reducing the slie
of Nanaimo County.
Asked; as to the effect of the change
by H. D. Twigg, the attorney-general
explained that there were three Country Court judges on the Island now
who could take care of the court, or
it might mean the appointment of a
new judge as the Dominion Government might propose.
Col. Peck asked If the member for
Comox h.'d ibeen consulted, and was
informed that lie had, and he felt the
time was ripe for the change.
Leroy Richardson, young son of Mr.
and Mrs. Q. Richardson had a very
narrow escape from serious Injury-on
Sunday atterncon last when he darted
oft the sidewalk In front of Spooner's
Barber Shop and attempted to cross
the road. Looking up the street while
running, he failed to see a big car
driven by Charlie Dalton. approaching.
Mr. Dalton at the time .was proceeding
very slowly Intending to stop at the
Cumberland Hotel, when he noticed
the boy leave the sidewalk and attempt to cross. He applied his brakes
Instantly and at the same time swerved his car hard to the left. The car
was stopped In about a foot and a half,
but >not before grazing the boy with
the front left fender. The boy received a slightly cut upper lip and a few
loosened teeth. He was taken to his
home by Mr. Dalton, none the worse
for his narrow escape.

Sudden Death Of
Hornby Island
Homesteader
Funeral of Well Known Pioneer
Took Place Thursday
at Cumberland
Mr. Peter Acton a well known pioneer ot Vancouver Island and the
north end In particular, dropped dead
on Monday last about six o'clock in
the evening, when out in the field
with bis son, Dick, helping to break
In a colt. The deceased gentleman
sudenly fell over with a sigh and died
in the arms of his son a few seconds
after collapsing. The family had no
knowledge that Mr. Acton was in any
way sick and did not know that he
had a tendency to heart failure.
Mr. Acton came out from Yorkshire,
England, some thirty-five years ago
and was approximately sixty-one
years of age. His first venture was
at Carmen, Manitoba, but not liking
the prairies, only stayed a few months
arriving at Victoria the same year.
He next tried Wellington, which was
at that time a flourishing town, eventually starting in as a general-store
keeper on his own account ln the City
of Nanaimo. After a short stay in the
Hub city he settled in Cumherland,
where in company with the late Mr.
Hayman and Mr. Duncan McRae established the Ideal store. He carried
on business for the next seven years,
moving to Hornby Island in 1911,

"Kelly" Found After
Two Weeks A.W.L.
"Kelly" the boston bull owned by
Mr. R. T. Cooper, of the Corner Store,
Sandwlck, has been found after being
on the missing list for two whole
weeks. Mr. Cooper went on a hiking
trip two weeks ago, accompanied by
"Kelly." In some way or other the
dog wandered away, his owner being
unable to locate him, returned to his
home at Sandwlck. Then next day he
engaged "Cougar" Smith to go out to
Bevan and try to locate the dog.
Smith returned minus the dog, the
family giving "Kelly" up as gone forever. Sunday afternoon last, however, Mr. Cooper received a telephone
message to the effect that a boston
bull was sitting on the steps at the
Bevan school. Loosing no time in getting out to Bevan, Mr. Cooper was
jubilant to find that the dog was his.
He iwas very thin, eyes nil bloodshot
and feet badly cut, otherwise the dog
appeared to be all right.

Comox-Alberni M.R. Disagrees
with the Immigration Policies
of Liberals and Conservatives
Ottawa, March 6.—Abolition of Canada's present Immigration agreement
with Japan or material alteration of;
it was advocated during a speech In I
the House yesterday afternoon by A. I
W. Neill, Independant, Comox-Alberni.!
Mr. Neill Bald he agreed with the
Prime Minister that it was desirable
to do nothing which would Injure
Canada's trade with the Orient, but no
consideration ot trade must divert the
people's vision of a ''white Canada"
The Orientals, he said, would "stand
us off" as long as they could, but It
was Important this agreement be modified.
FROM OTHER COUNTRIES.
Mr. Neill said that he disagreed with
the Immigration policies of both the
Liberals and Conservatives. This cry
tor a vigorous Immigration policy
came trom the shipping companies
and other large organizations, he
maintained. Their desire was to Import aliens and thus secure a supply
of cheap labor for their activities.
He resented the efforts to bring In
laborers fro mother countries to compete ln the already congested labor
market of Canada.
NEW SYSTEM SUGGESTED.
Mr. Neill said his own immigration
pWcy was brief. He would first admit
every white British subject, sound in
mind and body, who paid his own way,
and, second, persons from the continent of Europe on the basis of a
strict family quota toy which successful aliens ln this country could 'nominate members of their famlles.
The United States was now tightening its quota regulations and wishing
it had started sooner.
Such a policy as he had outlined
would release millions of dollars
which' could be used for Improving
farm conditions paying old age pensions and unemployment Insurance,
he   said.
LARGER FAMILIES.
Much nonsense was talked about
migration, he said. Scotland, a small
poor country, exported its people to
all parts of the world, but tbe Scottisli
people did not howl to the Government, demanding aliens from other
countries to take their places.
"The Scotch take the very sensible
method of going in for bigger and better families," Mr. Neill declared.
Mr. Neill concluded with a protest
against the new rule limiting speeches
in the house to forty minutes, which
he said prevented members discussing
matters of vital importance and cut
off Cabinet Ministers at the very apex
of their speeches on outstanding affairs.

School To
Get Tennis
Court Soon
Board  of School  Trustees to
Assist Teachers
The cement tennis court, asked for
by a delegation of teachers at the last
meeting of the Board of School Trustees, will be proceeded with. This
was decided at a special meeting of
the trustees held ln the school on Mon
day evening last, after a lot of discussion. At the start of the meeting
trustee Henderson opposed the scheme
claiming that the Board could not afford to' spend $15n.00 and advocated
instead that u retaining wall be built
at the end of the school grounds,
where filling in has been In progress
for some considerable time. The
trustee made a motion that the tennis
court be left for another year, but
received no seconder. Chairman, Mrs.
T. E. Banks, declared herself as tieing
In favor of the tennis court and would
very much like to see the building of
the court proceeded with, more especially In view of the fact that the teachers had promised to raise one half ot
the estimnted cost, $150.00.
The question of the tennis court was
left lu abeyance for a time and other
business proceeded with. The girl's
gymnasium class, of which Miss Aspesy Is leader, having approached the
board with a request for assistance, It
was moved by Trustee Bannerman
that the sum of $15.00 be donated to
the girls' gymnasium for equipment.
Previous to the motion being put to
the meeting, trustee McKinnon objected to any grant being given to the
gym. class, claiming lt was entirely
out of school work. On the passing
of the motion he again voiced his objection, claiming that In his opinion
the Hoard had made a serious mistake.
Coming to the tennis court business
trustee .MacNaughton moved that the
Hoard biillil a cement tennis court
nnd thai the teachers pay all expenses In connect ion wltii same over
$150.00. This was seconded by trustee
Hanks anil on being put to the meeting
was carried, trustee Henderson again
objecting.
Trustee MacKinnon moved that the
cement tennis court be built by day
labor, but got no seconder. Trustee
Henderson then moved thnt Mr. Fern
be given the contract for the building
of the court and that 0 written guarantee be given by the builder to maintain same for period of one year. This
was seconded by trustee Bannerman
and after n little discussion, put to
the meeting and carried.
It was also resolved that the ground
committee supervise the work and
arrange for lho necessary specifications, etc. There being no other business the Board adjourned after being
In session for one hour nnd ten minutes.
ST. PATRICK'S TEA
NEXT WEDNESDAY.
A St Patrick's tea will be held in

THE WEATHER
THE WEATHER seems a worn subject, but,
after all, it is the most popular form of introducing a talk.
To talk constantly of the weather would be
tedious; yet the weather has a lot to do with
business, and it is individual influence of first
magnitude.
A dark gloomy day often takes our joys away
but when the cheerful, broad-sewing, plenteous
spring arrives, we think we are going to be happy
But on a spring day we get spring fever—get the
hook-worm.
When the summer parching heat comes, we
feel like taking off our flesh and sitting in our
bones.
Then there is the sleety fall when the dry leaves
rustle and remind us of our earthly end. How
the fearful fall makes us mournful, blue and dejected. We wonder where the overcoat is coming
from.
Winter, a joy-killer. Spring a laziness-breeder.
Summer, a Sahara desert, and Fall a. funeral. In
summer it's too hot to work, and in winter too
cold to go out. We never want what we get in
weather, nor do we even get what we want in
weather. We are always complaining. On a
beautiful day, we smile and then say, "but tomorrow it will rain."
In bad weather, business is bad, and then the
weather is an alibi. In good weather we want
to run about in an auto.
When it rains we get remorseful and promise
right while the grass is growing, that some day
we will make hay.
When it's clear and hot, the corn is coming, but
our desire to work is below zero.
Will we ever learn the lesson that man cannot
change the weather—that man must conform to
the Creator's plans of dealing out hot and cold
dry and wet weather?
We call the arrow on the roof of a henhouse a
weathervane, but the magnet in a man's mind is
the weathervane. A man's brain is a barometer
that goes up and down with the weather like a
busy hotel elevator.
On a stormy day men splutter and spit sleet.
On a bright summer's day we sit in the shade
and brush the flies away.
The weather is the barometer of trade and an
excuse for escaping the necessary duties of the
day.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT at Ottawa is com
pleting arrangements for a three years' test on
transportation of Alberta's noal to Toronto, and the
Legislature at Victoria has unanimously given the proposal
its pious eudorsation. In some way or other not particularly clear to any one outside the Legislature, a subsidy
for the transportation of Alberta coal to Central Canadian
markets is bound to prove a benefit to tike coal industry
of this Province. So far as the industry on tbe Island is
concerned, the Legislature could years ago taken more
direct steps to help it out. The chief and the first cause
of the slump In In the Island coal trade Is and was the
competition of fuel oil from the United States.   A pro-
unSaq say [to puj ueqift Xuuipui |t:o.> eqi joj Xinp 3A|)OSi
to enter the Province, would have ut least tended to equalize this competition, and gone a long ways towards preventing the present slump. However, the day for this is
gone but It is passing strange that the men who frowned
down any mention of a protective duty are quite willing to
endorse a Canadian subsidy for Alberta coal. Even in
Vancouver today, there is semi-bituminous coal coming in
from Bellingham duty free under the guise of lignite
against the rulings and specifications of the Mining Department at Ottawa. It is not a big matter; but if this
Bellingham coal was made to pay a duty just the same as
Nanaimo coal going into Bellingham has to do, it would
be of more benefit than this transportaion subsidy to the
Island coal industry. Of course, the Legislature ln passing
this resolution was exposing itself to no local comeback
and this may, in part, explain its suden interest in and
concern for the welfare of the coal Industry of the Province.
As for the arangements the federal government Is now
completing, we understand that the railways will haul the
coal from Alberta at so much per ton ($6.75 we believe),
and should they prove that this amount is not enough the
Government will make up the loss by subsidy. In the first
place, then, the railways are being forced to undertake
the hauling of coal from Alberta at a rate which they claim
they cannot meet. It is a subversion of ordinary .business
principles which may or may not lie justified by the special
circumstances and the ifportance ot the fuel question to
the nation, land the undertaking of he Government to make
good any losses the companies may sustain Is not very
good business either. The hauling of the coal will not
commence before the fall of the year, and is liable to seriously Interfere with the hauling of grain. And, finally
when the Alberta coal'ls hauled to Toronto, It will have
to compete with the coal from Pennsylvania, not only in
price but in quality. Tbe whole scheme is an attempt to
overcome natural obstacles and disadvantages; but the
question and the if sues involved are. perhaps, big enough
to justify the experiment.

HEALTH SERVICE
of the
Canadian Medical Association
Question concerning Health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184 College Street,
Toronto, will be answered. Questions as to diagnosis and treatment will not be answered.
Sound Teeth
Whether or not a building is safe
and sound depends upon tbe materials =
used and the skill of the workmen.
Our body-cells are skilled ln the building up process but they must be gtv-
ven good materials for this in the
food we eat. If there are to be sound i
teeth, there must be provided the materials for which to build such teeth.
Mineral elements, such as calcium,
form a large part of the teeth which,
in many ways, are like bone. The outer surface, or crown of the tooth, is
much harder than bone. This outer
surface or enamel is the hardest substance in the body.
These mineral substamces can only
be secured from the food eaten. In
other words, proper food must be
eaten   if we are to have sound teeth.,
mothers should know what to eat.
What are these foods that the
expectant mother and growing children must have for the proper building of teeth? Foods possessing these
elements are milk and milk products,
whole grains, leafy vegetables, such
„. as celery, lettuce and spinach.
!J| It will be remarked, whenever the
question of diet is considered In re-
The kind of teeth a child has de-! lation to health, that milk and milk
pends upon the food his mother atej products are of the first Importance
before his birth, and upon what foodj and following closely, are the green
he received during his earliest years i leafy vegetables and fruits.
The beginning of the tooth is laid I When, as a naiion, we begin to eat

That Way
If you or any relative or friend Is
is worried because of varicose veins,
or bunches, 'he best advice that anyone in this world can give you Is to
ask your druggist for an original
two-ounce bottle of Moone's Emerald
Oil (full strength) and apply night
and morning to the swollen enlarged
veins. Soon you will notice that they
are growing smaller and the treatment should be continued until the
veins are of normal size. So penetrating Is Emerald Oil that even Piles
are quickly absorbed. Any one who
is disappointed with its use can have
their money refunded.

~iupon   the   Dominion   government   to
provide a railway subsidy on the haul-

Mr. Woodward showed that British
Columbia coal could be laid down ln
the markets of Manitbba amd Ontario
at a profit, ln competition with the
United States coal, provided the movement was assisted sufficiently to get
lt under way. Conservative and Liberal members alike supported the resolution, which if adopted' and acted
upon by the Ottawa authorities,
should aid materially ln Increasing
the output ot British Columbia coal.

The Eight-Hour Day law in effect
In British Columbia is working out
better than similar legislation anywhere else ln the world, states Attorney-General Manson. He informed the
legislature that a stridor form of inspection will be followed by the department of labor in future, so that
the worklngman may have ample protection under the measure. This
course will be followed- also, he added, with regard to the Male Minimum
Wage Act and the Semi-Monthly Pay
ment of Wages act.
With a general election in sight
within the near future, It Ib not the
intention of Premier MacLean to call
a by-election in. Nanaimo to All the

minister of mines and commissioner

of the outstanding departmental heads
ln all Canada. He followed rigid plan
of superintending the work of his two
departments, leaving the detail work
largely in the hands of trained execu

cabinet and fill the several seats
which are vacant. Meanwhile, one of

Universal appreciation of the government's proposal to afford relief In
the handling of Sumas reclamation

of agriculture, states that there will
be a reduction of 20 per cent, on a
farm unit basis. The construction ot
a main highway through the lands had
made It possible to consider this reduction, said the minister, who predicts that Sumas reclaimed lands are
rapidly coming to the front as being
among the richest dividend-payers In
the entire province.

Please allow me a little space in
your valuable paper to bring to the
notice of the many badminton enthusiasts in the district, the fact that the
largest club in the Comox district has
ceased activities for this winter. Looking through the Vancouver Dally
Province on Saturday last, I notice
that all clubs In the city are continu
Ing. Why cannot the Imperial Club
using the Imperial Pavilion at Royston continue for at least one more
month. All other clulbs in this district
have at least six months playing period and their members do not pay one
half 'the dues the members of the
Imperials are called upon to pay. Tbe
excuse has been advanced, so I am led
to believe, that the proprietors of the
Hall want to get_ ready for the dancing season. It appears to me .that it
is a little too early for dancing to start
for spring and summer and lt would
not surprise the writer to see the dancing at Roystoa become a "frizzle"
for at least another six weeks. Surely
if badminton is to flourish (and 1 am
led to believe the proprietors of the
Pavilion want it to flourish), a little
more time could easily be allowed for
the season's play. The Imperial club
I am informed do not make one cent
out of the olub, all the dues go toward
paying the rent, somewhere in tbe
neighborhood' of 8400. With over one
hundred young people playing bad-
in Cumberland alone, it appears to the writer that a hall could
j be built right ln the City of Cumberland alone, to be used exclusively
for badminton, and accommodate
three courts.
If better service and longer playing
periods are not to be allowed at tbe
Imperial Pavilion, a hall will be built
in this city, iwhloh would take care ot
all the badminton clubs that could be
formed.

Cumberland,  B.C.,
March 28th, 1928.
The Editor
Cumberland Islander,
Dear Sir:-
Re my tender as auditor for the
City of Cumberland for 1928, which I
Submitted tor the sum of S100.00,
which was not accepted, but given out
for $150.00. In fairness to myself I
think I am entitled to make use ot the
Press to ventilate this matter. In the
first place, although 1 put In a bid for
the work, I did not expect to get it,
for the reason that I thought, bearing
iu mind that the City books were audited in 1921 and 1922 by Mr. Wood,
then High School principal tor (35.00
and (40.00 respectively, that my price
would be too high and In 1922 the
amount of monies passing through
the City books was larger than at the
present time.
The work of auditing is a lighter
task today than it was then, for this
reason. Prior to 1923 there was no
proper set of books to work on, Mr.
Wood's audit in 1922 called attention
to that fact, and I know as a result
that he had extra work to do before
he could make ah audit. As a member
of the City Council for 1923, and one
of the Finance Committee, 1 was in
strumental in having the School and
City accounts kept separate, boh in
the City records and ln tbe Bank, anil
the same year It was largely at my
suggestion that an up to date set <>.
books was Installed. I am quite willing, hawever, to give the Council for
that year credit for the so much needed innovations.
The Plre Department can also speak
ot the good work that was done on
1 their behalf in 19"3.   The Fire Depart
nient had 'been  agitating   for   years
' previously to that time, without re
' suits.    Let me say that  I took the
. leading part In remedying that grievance.   1 refer to building rooms over
I tbe Fire Hall, and giving better ac-
! commodation for the Are truck and
equipment.
In conclusion, ln submitting my
tender I called our City Fathers' attention to the fact that I had on two or
three previous occasions audited the
City of Cumberland's books, therefore
had the necessary experience. Fur
ther that I was a property owner and
also a RESIDENT of the City, apparently, however, that was not sufficient to satisfy the Council.
Alter all Is said, It is the taxpayer
who has to foot the bills and it Is for
them to judge as to whether or not
the Aldermen were giving that its due
consideration when awarding the
Tender at Four Times the price paid
in the years referred to (1921-1922)
Thanking you for the space in your
valuable paper.
Yours Truly,
FRANK PARTRIDGE,
Ex-Alderman.

PAYING ATTENTION
TO BANK ACCOUNT
Winnipeg, March 7.—With winter
on its last legs (why not be optimistic) and summer vacations in the offing
Canadian are beginning to plan trips
to Europe and the railway i;nd steamship companies are making their preparations. Arrangements have been
completed between the Canadian National Railways and the White Star
line for the third annual personally
conducted tour of Europe, which will
commence on July 7, when the Laur-
entic sails from Montreal. A great
many western Canadians, Including
school teachers, who are always good
summer travellers, are already paying
some attention to their bank accounts,
and are making enquiries about the
Itinerary. It is ;m interesting one.
After eight days on the ocean, the
| motor coach trip throughout England
and Scotland will commence. The
English lakes, Carlisle, and some of
the historic spots close by will be visited on the ilrst day; a trip through
the Burns' country will wind up at
Glasgow, and there will be a day's
sightseeing in Edinburgh after a
journey through the Trossachs. From
Edinburgh, the tourists will go to
Newcastle, Durham, York and Leamington, thence to London by way of
the Shakespeare country and Oxford.
Four days In London will give the
visitors ample opportunity to see the
Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament and other ancient landmarks
of history. Windsor and Hampton
will rouse up more memories and
Stoke Pogis will bring to mind the
curfew tolling the knell of parting
day, the village Hampdens, mute Inglorious Miltons and the usual reflections apertaining thereto. Bruges and
Brussels will be followed i>y a week
in   Switzerland—Lucerne,   Merlngen
Interlaken,   Montreux,   Geneva,  with
boat trips—and six days in Parts will
likely be all too few.    The  tourists
will sail from Havre on the Megantic,
arriving in'Montreal on August 18, 42
I days after they left It.    One of the
i most inviting aspects of the tour, ac-
1 cording to railroad officials, is that it
I wil not be .rushed and that the travell-
| ers will have time to allow the multi-
| tude of new Impressions to soak Into
i their memories for future refreshment

ASK EXTENSION OF
ISLAND HIGHWAY
Victoria, Feb. 27.—Oreat Interest Is
taken up-lsland in the question of extending the road from Compbell River
to Sayward district, and therby placing the Salmon and White River valleys In touch with Victoria by tht
Island Highway.
Last summer an announcement was
made that there would be a highway
bridge built across the Compbell River
as conveniently near the mouth as
practicable, to enable the coast road
I to continue northerly by way of Men-
| zles Bay to the destination. From
Sayward south the depannent of Public Works stated road Ibuildlng and a
considerable section iwas slashed out
a promise being made to a deputation
that the department would open six
miles of the route, with a view to
linking it to the Island Highway. It Is
reported that progress with this road
has been slow.   *

Ithe absence of regular boat calls, as

Our Failure
In Immigration
Not once in the past seventeen years
has any serious attempt been made to
formulate a constructive immigration
policy for the Dominion.
The people of this country is our
one great overmastering problem and
yet both parties baulk at any practical endeavor to solve it.
The reason, for this indifference,
this splnelessness has never been explained and lt cannot well be fully explained without running the risk of
wounding certain susceptibilities that
would be embarasslng and would do
nothing to help the situation.
All estimates bearing on the future
growth of Canada must take Into account the stability or Instability of
such employment as we are able o
provide for our own people and for
the new comers from other lands.
It 1.4 an extravagant and cruel (oily
to enllco people to come to this coun.
tn> iind leave them stranded here
without means of earning their livelihood.
The ill repute of unemployment,
spreading through the countries from
which me recruit our settlers checks
immigration at its source.
How then can we provide the employment necessary to sustain new
settlers In sufficiently large numbers
to establish prosperity on a scale commensurate with the size of the country
and with the richness of Its natural
resources?
The farms throughout Canada can
absorb only a very limited number,
and thin absorption, is necessarly
gradual because farmers desiring to
emigrate are scarce in those countries
which produce desirable immigrants
aqd the settlement of farm lands In
the West proceeds only in small
waves which are dependent largely
upon means of transportation and accessibility of markets.
These facts must force every rational thinker to the conclusion that
If we arc tu make any' great strides
In population they must be based upon the Influx of the so called 'working'
clauses ns well as of agriculturists,
and t)uw retention of nur arm people.
..tost of these newcomers and the natural Increase In our own people will
look to manufacturers for their livelihood. They cannot do otherwise.
How con we multiply our factories
to the satisfaction of workers and consumers alike. We cannot have Pro-
tect'on sufficiently high to secure the
home market h" It Is to be collected at
tine expense of of the farmer.
In what way Is the prosperity of a
vast enlargement of Industrial establishments to be secured and maintained without incurring the antagonism
of the farming population?
Can such a result be achieved?
The Star has received an abundance
ot advice, many theories, suggestions
and plans trom some of the ablest men
In this Dominion. Among these contributors are bankers, manufacturers,
economists, professional men and politicians. All of them are Impressed
iwlth the urgent need of a solution of
the problem and all are actuated by
a simple sincerity to advance the welfare and prosperity of their country.
When the schemes and suggestions
are closely analysed and the more visionary dreams are winnowed out, the
field of choice appears to be greatly
restricted.
Manufacturing exclusively for home
consumption offers too limited a scope
Manufacturing for export, affording
the' basis of employment to many
thousands, must therefore constitute
the basis of our hopes for peopling
this country.
Wherever there are factories there
will me massed population forming
towns and cities.
Herein lies the crux of the whole
probblem. We submit a precis ot a
composite plan drafted after long consideration by profound students and
men of practical experience to whom
we owe a debt of gratitude for their
labours.
1st Apply the system of Protection
in full measure to secure the home
market for the producer.
2nd—Bonus the manufacturer on his
export to enable him to undnrecil
trade rivals In foreign countries.
If the claim Is well founded that
every new settler ln this country
is a national asset equivalent to
one thousand dollars, the bonus
might In this iway to a large extent be  paid  by  what the new
comers are doing for the upbuilding of tbe country.
Brd—By a rigid system of inspection
compel the manufacturer to sell for
home consumption at cost with a restricted margin of profit to be determined   by  an   Independent  tribunal
when the policy Is maugrnted, and
thus convince the consumer that he Is
nut being railed  upon  to pay  the
equivalent of the duty.
In order to make the bounty
attractive to the manufacturer,
establish It on a sliding scale relative to volume of export iwith provision for readjustment at stated
periods as he establishes his ex-
ENGINES COLLIDE
Nos. 15 and 17 Try to Pass Each
Other on the Same Track
With Damaging Results.
What might have resulted in ia serious accident, but luckily only resulted
in the smashing of several coal cars
and the damaging of two locomotives,
occurred Tuesday afternoon last when
engines No. 10 and 15 of the Weling-
ton Colliery Co. collided on the mala
line about opposite the Gun Club's
grounds.
It appears Engine No. 15 In charge
of F. Pickard, who had just relieved
port trade.
4th—Provide strict prventhe laws
carrying heavy penalties for the evasion of the enactments governing the
itrlct application of this policy.
Critics may maintain that such a
policy Is revolutionary. It is revolutionary, but Canada has been stagnating too long, Increasing our pop-
lotion at a swill's pace while our
neighbors under a tariff that is almost
prohibitive have been going forward
by leaps and bounds, exporting to
countries of tihe world on a tremendous scale.
The argument against the continuance of our slow limping methods is
so convincing that a revolutionary
plan of some kind must be adopted or
our overshadowing will be more and
more marked.
With an export business established
as suggested, an estimate based on
careful Investigation and careful calculation holds out the prospect of the
Increase of a million now comers a
year thus glvllng Canada ground for
hope that she will become one of the
great nations ot the world.
In the language of His Majesty the
King: "Canada has slept l»"g cmougl'
It Is time to wake up."
Unless some broadly conceived forward movement is Inaugrated we will
suffer more and more by comparison
with our neighbors as the years go by.
and we well deserve the taunt of being
a laggard people.
This leads to the conclusion that
Canda must remain a stilted and undeveloped nation until the | political
parties call a truce and apply themselves earnestly and co-operatively te
finding a solution of he prolem of im-
mlgralao.
—Montreal Star, Feb. 21/28
Engineer MacDonald and Fireman
Grant, left the siding at No. 6 with the
intention of bringing back some empty cars from No. 5 siding before engine No. 10 which was bringing a
train of empty coal cars from the
| wharf, would arrive. No. 15 was running light at the time and had just
rounded the curve near the Club
grounds when No. 10 was sighted
coming full speed up the track the
brakes were immediately applied and
j then he reversed, but before Engineer
Pickard could get her started back.
No. 10 crashed Into the tender, doing
considerable damage.
In the meantime, Engineer Lockner
of No. 10, seeing that a collision was
lnevevltable, applied the emergency
brake with the result that when the
engines struck the first five cars simply smashed themselves to pieces In
their endeavor to jump over each
other.
Engineer Lockner and Fireman Ray
both Jumped before the engines struck
escaping injury, though Ray had a
close call from being caught by a
falling car.
Engineer Pickard remained in his
cab and also came out unhurt but no
doubt ihad he jumped after reversing
his engine, No. 15 would have kept on
to the lake, doing considerable more
damage.
Wilt Clinton, Paymaster Clinton's
little boy, was In No. 10's cab at the
time and miraculously escaped without a scratch'.
A large force of men were immediately put to work clearing the wreck
and before midnight the line was open
and the passenger train arrived on
time.
Both engines suffered considerable
damage, though No. 10 fared the worst
and it will be some time before she is
to working order again, while the repairs to No. 15 have been completed
and she Is again. In commission.
No. 10 Is the same engine that was
in the Ladysmith wreck some time
ago.
