Local Cricketers
Defeat Courtenay
The local cricketers journeyed to
Courtenay on Tuesday evening, June
3rd, and engaged the Courtenay
eleven in a return fixture, and after
a very interesting game Cumberland
won by three wickets and 11 runs.
Guy failed to turn up and the visitors had to travel with one man
short. Les Moody, however, of the
Courtenay eleven volunteered to
play to make up the team. Courtenay
won the toss and decided to bat flrst
the bowling being entrusted to Vernon-Jones and S. Gough. The latter got two wickets early on and
Vernon-Jones got the next two, four
wickets being down for 23 runs. Hall
took the place of Vernon-Jones for
three overs and managed to get two.
wickets at small cost. Vernon-Jones
resumed the bowling and signalled
his return by clean bowling Thomas
Gough got two more wickets and the
last man in Duckett was run out by
Carney from a return by Vernon-
Jones. The whole side was dismissed
for 52 runs. Gough bowled well
having 4 wickets for 22 runs and
bowling all through the innings. Hall
had 2 for 12 and Vernon-Jones 3
for 15.
Cumberland started with Joe Idiens and C. Dando facing the bowling of McLaughlin and Grier. After
making 4 runs, Joe Idiens was well
taken by Bourdillon oft* McLaughlin's bowling. Tom Carney went in
and immediately started hitting. He
knocked off 17 before getting his
leg in front of a straight one from
McLaughlin. Dando went out after
making 8 being bowled by a "york-
er". Three wickets were down for
30 runs, a much better performance
than the home side's score. Hall
went out after making one, being
caught and bowled by Ellis who had
displaced Grier, Robathan added a
great deal of life to the game by
his timely hitting, but he lost Hall,
Hipp and Moody, three wickets only
producing 4 runs. Gough, however,
came to Rohathan's help and hit two
two's, a four and a single before being caught out in the long field. A.
J. Taylor joined Robathan and the
necessary runs were soon obtained,
Robathan hitting up 18 and Taylor 4
for a not out innings. Promptly at 7
stumps were drawn with Cumberland's score 63 for 7 wickets and
Courtenay 52 for 10 wickets. P.
McLaughlin was the homesters star
man as in addition to taking 5 wickets for 33 runs he was top scorer for
his side with a lively 16.

Joe Gordon Wins
The Tarbell Cup
150 Attend Convention To
Nominate Allan W. Neill
Nanaimo, June 3.—The Dowager
Countess of Clarendon arrived in Nanaimo from England Monday night
and immediately motored to Parksville, where she will be the guest
of her son, Col, Burke, for three
There was a large gallery of spectators present at the traps of the
Cumberland Rod and Gun club on
Sunday last when the shoot for the
Tarbell cup took place. Joe Gordon
one of the veterans of the gun club
showed his superiority after a tie
shoot with Ben Horbury and Carl
Coe, two of the club's youngest and
most ardent shooters. The contest
was divided into three classes; "A",
"B" and "C". In the first class C.
Dalton, J. H. Cameron and J. Bono
were drawn against one another,
making scores of 7, 12 and 15 respectively. In the "B" class B. Wilcock, P. Franeioli and R. Coe were
drawn against one another, the
scores being 13, 16 and 17 respectively.
The other class saw B. Horbury,
J, Gordon, L. Frelone, C. Coe, R.
Bennie and W. McLellan together,
scores being: 20, 20, 18, 20, 17, 16,
Gordon, Horbury and C. Coe being
tied with 20 each a shoot off was
necessary. In the final shoot neither
of the three competitors came up to
their previous scores, Joe Gordon
winning with 18 dead birds. C. Coe
next with 14 birds and B. Horbury
with 11 birds.
Immediately after the shoot, Joe
Horbury, president of the club presented the cup to Gordon who on
being asked to fill it promised to do
so on Saturday. Judging by the
number of friends Joe Gordon has
he will have to fill it a good many
times before all are satisfied.
Former Resident
Dies In Victoria
Word was received in Cumberland
on Wednesday night of the death in
Victoria of a former i resident of this
city in the person of Mrs. Anna Boyd
at the age of 56 years, widow of the
late James Boyd who died in'Cumberland about eighteen months ago.
After the death of her husband, Mrs.
Boyd left Cumberland to reside with
her daughter in Courtermy, later
moving to Victoria to be with her
daughter. The deceased lady had
not been in the best of health for
some tame, but her demise on Wednesday of this week came as a shock
to her many friends in Cumberland.
The funeral will be held on Sunday
morning .service being held in the
Roman Catholic Church at 11 a.m.
and interment will be made in the
Roman Catholic Cemetery, Cumberland with the Rev. Father Beaton
A grown-up family is left to
mourn her passing.
M, D. McLean, assistant superintendent of the Crow's Nest Pass
Coal Co,, Ltd., Michel, was nominated as candidate for Kootenay East
Federal riding by the conservative
convention held at Cranhrook on
Saturday last, "Mickey" McLean is
exceptionally well known to a number of Cumberlanders who were residents of Michel twenty years ago
when the popular "Mickey" was beginning to make a name for himself. His many friends in Cumberland will wish him all success in the
coming election.
Opened New School
The new Comox High School was
officially opened on Thursday afternoon by the Hon. Joshua HinchlifTe,
minister of education, and a large
number of residents of the district
were present at the ceremony. Mr.
Hinchliffc congratulated the taxpayers of the school district on their undertaking and for the better part
of an hour kept his audience interested in an address on educational
matters and the benefits of education.
After a hearty vote of thanks was
tendered the minister on Motion by
Miss McQueen, principal of the
school, tea was served and the visitors made an inspection of the handsome new building.
In the evening, the Hon. Mr.
HinchlifTe addressed a small audience
in the Gaiety Theatre, Courtenay, on
"Education.'* It was unfortunate
that more did not turn out ot hoar
the head of the educational department on this all-important matter,
but those who did, gained a new in-|
sight into the difficulties confronting the department, not only on the
question of endeavoring to find an
equitable system of taxation for
school purposes, but also on other
matters connected with the department, one of the most important of
which was the selection of text books
Hitherto, many text books had been
obtained from the United States and
naturally there had been a great American influence, but this was being
gradually overcome and Canadian
text books were now being introduced.
Thomas Graham was present and
also said a few words. The meeting
was entirely non-political.
Independent  Candidate  Tells  Audience  He  Has  the  Greatest
Respect for Mr. Tom Graham, Who Is
a Worthy Opponent
At the most enthusiatic gathering hard as he had done during the past
yet, A. W. Neill was on Wednesday I eight years in the interests of his
afternoon chosen for the fourth time j constituents it would be foolish not
as Independent candidate for the Co-j to send him back to Ottawa again,

was signed by 48 fishermen in an;er. He also had opinions of hi*; own
and used very good judgment.
No other names were put before
the meeting and Mr. Neill's nomination was enthusiastically declared
In thanking the gathering for
their confidence in him, Mr. N'eill
said ho expected to be nominated but
did not expect so large and enthusiastic an audience; it was an expres
sion of confidence. There were three
occasions when he really got a "luck"
out of politics; one was on an occasion of this kind, the second was the
recording of that confidence by a
large majority on election day and
the third was when he, a humble
commoner from the west, walked
boldly past the policeman at thc door
out of the way point on the west
const, assuring Mr. Neill of the
heartiest support all up and down
the line.
The convention ,was opened by
Mayor Maxwell of Cumberland and
the first order of business was the
calling for nominations. W. A. B.
Paul, of Lazo, immedaitely rose and
proposed the name of A. W. Neill
and in doing so said that so long
Mr. Neill maintained his independence and  Worked at least half as

Wesley White also of Fanny Bay,
was charged the same day under the

The case waa tried before Stipendiary Magistrate G. Robert Bates who

Mr. Neill said it would be utterly
impossible for him to cover the whole
district before election date, his
j friends would have to help him, but
after tho election he would visit
every outlying polling division. He
understood Mr. Graham, the Conservative candidate, had made some very
flattering remarks about him at the
time of his nomination, which he appreciated very much. Personally,
he hnd the greatest respect for Mr.
Graham, who was a worthy opponent, and as far as he was concerned
there would be no "mud-slinging" in
this campaign. Mr. Neil! said he
would leave his further remarks until after the dinner which ho understood was being prepared for them
in the supper room of the hall.
P. P. Harrison was called on. He
said that Mr. Neill had giv>.;. his entire efforts for the good of the district and every person in it, irrespective of party affiliations in a manner
different from that of any other
member since he had been in the
district. Having given that service
it would be "unfair to turn him down
and put some one else in.
John Sutherland of Cumberland,
also spoke a few words telling how
he had met returned men from Vancouver who claimed Mr. Neill had
done more for tehm than their Vancouver members.
By this time Mayor Macintyre had
arrived nnd extended a cordial welcome to the delegates, more particularly as this was thc fourth time
they had gathered to nominate Mr.
Neill as candidate. This was a good
spirit and showed that they were intelligent people. He expected they
had chosen Mr. Neill, he didn't see
how they could do otherwise, and ho
congratulated the delegates on having a man like Mr. Neill ;"he was an
indefatigable worker for the'Whole
of the district. Most of them knew
how he (Mayor Macintyre) stood
politically, but it was hard to say
what he would do this time. Mr.
Neill was an easy man to talk to, an
ensy mun to approach and a hard
many to say anything bad about. He
wished him success in his campaign!
The delegates then adjourned to
the supper room whore a magnificent I
chicken dinner was served by Percy!
Sadler and his helpers, after which j
they returned to the hall where Mr.
Noill delivered to a capacity audience
nn address on the political situation
of the day and the pari be had played
in important questions.
Introducing his remarks, Mr. Neill
said that in former years the people
from Vancouver had boon in the habit of telling the people licit' how to
vote and even went so far as to bring
in candidates from outside, but (hat
time was a thing of tbe past. However, he quoted evidence thai as
early as August last Mr. Graham had
been selected by Vnncouvor interests
to contest this riding. He also quoted prominent conservatives as stating that there could be only two
parties in Canada but this was controverted by the fact that 66 members of the House of Commons, or
twenty-five per cent, were not aligned to either of the old political parties,and these represented approximately 2,000,000 of Canada's population.
In 1021 he had been elected

Robinson was later charged with
doing gnicvious bodily harm, the case
arrising over defendant having allegedly struck D. R. MacDonald in
a dance hall in Courtenay. Magistrate Bates found him guilty of this
charge also and fined Robinson the
sum of $50.00and costs.
On Thursday, May 29th, William
James Lewis of Cumberland was
charged under the criminal code of
Canada, section 286 with changing
checks of mine cars. Stipendiary
Magistrate John Conway, after hearing evidence, found defendant guilty
and fined him the sum of $50.00 and
On Friday, May 30th, P. L. Wick,
charged with changing license plates
from one car to another was fined
$10.00 and costs, Stipendiary Magistrate G. Robert Bates tried the case.
On Saturday, May 31st, before
Stipendiary Magistrate John Conway, Thomas Adamson and William
Logan were both charged with driving tothe common danger. They were
fined $10.00 and costs each and had
their license suspended for 30 days.
Mr. and Mrs. D. Bannerman entertained nt dinner on Tuesday evening last in honor of thc former's
cousins, Messrs. Loun and John
Johnston and their friend, Mr. Chas.
Booth who motored here recently
from their home in Ingleside, San
Francisco. Other guests also cousins
of the visitors included Mrs. H. Con-
rod, Mrs. J. Stant, Mrs. Alex Chalni-'
ers and Junior, Mrs. Harmston and

"Every person who has become a

he became naturalized has been cancelled, or unless, if a woman, sin-
had married a man who is not a
British subject."

REPORTS to hand from the Forest .Service on
the Forest Fire situation show that hazardous conditions prevail at the moment in
almost every part of the Province. Already the
number of fires exceed the total for the same portion of last year, which it will be remembered was
a distinctly bad year in that respect.
Three-fourths of our Forest Fires are due to
plain Carelessness. Carelessness is always reprehensible, but carelessness with fire is carelessness
in il j deadliest form.
Public opinion has done a great deal to make
car lessness unpopular, and when it brings its
weight sufficiently to bear on the Man who is
Careless with Fire, nur losses from Forest Fires
will by-and-by be negligible.

Our sentiment in this matter makes it difficult
to consider the monetary loss to the nation re-
sulting from the emigrating of these one million
Any effort to put a money value on our flesh
ami "blood disregards what we value most—
friendship—love—family ties—comfort in old age
—the real happinea of life, the perpetuation of

Cumberland City
Band Re 24th Of
May Celebration
To tlie Public:
Since writing my last article a
trustee ef the city band lias informed
me llmt the Canadian Collieries (D) |
Ltd., did buy and present the instruments to the members of tho city
band. The public bought thc uniforms only.
I made thc statement that the uniform were not designed for summer
wear, I think the public were un-
V. isely advised in buying them. The
uniforms are of military style with
high eollare, end the material is much
I--, 1 envy. Can you imagine a band
marching through thc streets on a
hoi day blowing their instruments
dressed in high collared military
tunics, From experience I know this
e, be most uncomfortable. If they
leave the collars open they look untidy, besides, this is had deportment.
I would now further reply to thc
statement thai the hand very rarely
practised. If you will allow me to
go bach a year, a similar statement
was made at thc close of the first
meeting of the committee for the
Miners' Picnic. Someone reminded
lhe Gentleman that they had forgotten   lho   hand.     I   was  informed, the
Gentleman snid "Leave the band
wlnre it is" (with an added sentence
that would not look very nice in the

twice before tho "lib of May (1020)
and they only played half-a-dozen

It has been said by a well known
business magnate thai "once .in every
man's life hc needs a good 'jacking
up!'" There is much truth in this
assertion, especially applicable to the
man who has irregular supervision in
his work; who is to all intent his own
When one has been in a position
long enough to feel secure, 'tis only
natural to sag a bit, and often little
harm is done to anyone except the
"sagger"; but again—when the position is one of trust ,and the responsible person becomes indifferent to
his trust, there is serious need of
"jacking tip" *f nnt "'' move drastic
In several .instances we see cases
of such indifference in Cumberland;
though lhe one most noticeably in
need of the "jack" is a wheel in the
Civil scr*. ice known as the local Post
Office! where the methods of sorting
the mail havo graduated from the
"joke' 'to tbe "agony column".
His Majesty's mail is a sacred trust
so sacred that men must be sworn
in before being permitted to handle
,it. Once sworn in the Government
trusts them to exercise the utmost
care in insuring the safe delivery of
every document, letter, and paper in-1
to the hands of the lawful recipient j
and when failure to exercise this
care becomes a habit, 'tis time to use,
the "jack". '
During the last few years, Cum- (
berland people, through necessity,
have acquired the habit of careful
perusal of their envelopes before'
leaving the office, and as ofl en aa
not they may be seen stepping up
to the slot and slipping into it letters
placed in their boxes by mistake. Of
course an occasional mistake is unavoidable, but not a perpetual series!
Mrs. Heaton wearies of returning
the mail of Mrs. Bertram, and vice
versa. Mr, Leefer experiences a
certain annoyance and chagnin at
finding himself addressed as Lee
Wun Lung! especially in a community where he much prefers being recognized as an "Occidental." Complaints at the wicket are of little
avail, though to be sure every courtesy is met with—there could be no
found with the obliging friendly
spirit of the Post Master—the fault
lies in bis failure to realize the importance of his trust. A far cry is
he from thc Mail Carrier of old who
faced the dangers of tbe wilds,
guarding his mail with his life!
People in isolated districts must
depend upon tlie conscientiousness of
the Post Master for all their dealing
with the outside world, and serious
trouble may be caused by the delayed or perhaps non-delivery of documents ami letters.

supplementaries,—the staggering nature of their total was not at first
realized. Now, however, all parties
in the house, irrespective of polities,
are asking themselves from whence
is the necessary revenue to come,
Last year's estimates totalled
$404,245,000 and the government's
surplus at the close of the yeai* was
approximately $44,000,000. It might
seem, accordingly that there was a
fair margin with which to meet the
.increased demands of this year. In
this connection, however, it must bi
remembered that not only is the gov
ernment facing a year of shrinking
revenue due to the general slowing
up of business, but also that it has
definitely given up sources of income which in the past have been
most remunerative. The cut in the
sales tax, according to Hon. Mr. Dun
nings own estimate will mean a loss
of $22,000,000; the liquor export
bill is expected to cost another $16,-
000,000; changes in the corporation
and personal income taxes will mean
the loss of another $10,000,000
while the abolition of the tax on tea
will cramp the Federal treasury to
the extent of another $2,500,000.
The sum of $10,000,000 at least will
be lost from the customs revenue
through the extensions of the British
Thus, without estimating the cost
j of the changes .in the U. S. tariff,
1 which only time can show, Hon. Mr.
Dunning is facing the year with the
; definite prospect of a shrinkage of
over $59,000,000 in the revenue
which he will enjoy. This reduction,
together with the increase of approximately $16,000,000 in the estimates
, moans not only that a surplus of
$44,000,000 becomes inadequate to
cave for the situation but also that
it leaves a deficit of $31,000,000 to
be almost certainly faced.
Legislative problems are mingling

has declared, although Hon. Mr. Ben
nctt has not agreed with him, that
such a course would be beyond the
legislative competence of parlaiment.
The plan which the government
has now evolved is to leave the mat
ter in the hands of tin* province of
Nova Scotia, so far as the conl operators are concerned. A clause In
thc bill providing bounty stipulates
that it shall only be paid after the
Province of Nova Scotia lias adopted the labor conditions recommended by the treaty of Versailles, which

As to immigration, he had always
been opposed to assisted immigration
A. D. MacRae had proposed a scheme
of expending three million dollars
on some settlement proposition, but
that had been killed hy a remark of
Agnes MacPhuil that his read speech
on the question was a very tine promotion prospectus. Dr. Manion, another Conservative, had said that this
country should be the Mecca of every
unemployed man. Assisted immigration was merely a promotion of the
railway ami steamship companies,
The C. P. R, had a bargain with the
government to bring in so many and
furnish them work. They did give
them work for a year on construction and then turned them loose to
bring in another hatch. He suggested that the way to fill up the country
was by way of the stork and not by
the immigration agent.
The issue of the election would undoubtedly be the Budget and he was
prepared to swallow it, lock, stock
and barrel. He supported it in every
detail. The Fnancial Post said it
was the most popular budget in the
history of the Dominion. Increased
British preference would increase
Empire trade and the countervailing
duty clause was an invitation to the
United States to be reasonable wtih
their tariff. It was a good budget
for the British Columbia agriculturist. Out of the whole membership
of the House he was the only man
who spoke beofre the Tariff Board on
the question of eggs. Why did not
the Conservative members from Vancou ver, who were willing to come
150 miles to oppose his election,
walk across the street at Ottawa to
put in a good word for the B. C. egg
As to the Australian Treaty, he
had always opposed its repeal but
had a resolution before the House,
until the thunder was stolen by Mr.
Bennett, asking that tbe provisions
with reference to New Zealand be
Laken from the treaty. He was happy to say that the treaty did not now
Apply  to  New  Zealand.
Other matters touched on by Mr. "d attendance, 2K
Neill were Income Taxes; returned
men's matters, which were now in
such a position that tlie returned
men were perfectly satisfied with the
legislation afforded for their assistance; Fisheries and the Elections Act.
Witli reference to the result of the
election he could tell them there was
going to be no land slide. Three Conservatives from Nova Scotia had voted with the government on the budget; there was no division in (Quebec
as some of their Conservative friends

and did their part he was not one bit
afraid of the result.
