ELECTIONS
DEFERRED
Victoria, March 8. Today an
order-in-council was signed by
Lieutenant - Covernor Barnard
formally dissolving the Legislature of British Columbia. Nominations will be made April 3rd,
and the elections will be held, a
week later, April 10th.
Victoria, March 11. The intricate task of preparing new voters'
lists to comply with the new Redistribution measure which increases tlie membership from
forty-two to forty-seven, besides
subdividing a number of constituencies yesterday imposed
upon the Provincial Covernment
the obligation to pos'pone the
date of the general election beyond the time which had been
tentatively set, April 10th. In
due course the new date will be
made public. Fortunately, the
order-in-council dissolving the
Legislature had not yet been
signed by His Honor the Lieut.-
Governor, when this matter was
directed to the attention of the
authorities by the King's Printer
and other election officials, so
that the staus quo prior to the
prorogation of the House on Saturday last is preserved.
Sir Richard McBride, in making
this announcement last night,
made it clear that the alteration
in the plan of action for an appeal to the people was due solely
and entirely to the necessity of
meeting a new situation which
had developed as a result of the
enactment of the Redistribution
Bill. The Government's inability
to promptly get proclamations
and accura.e voters' lists in the
hands of authorized agents in the
outlying constituencies, as well
as the large amount of additional
work imposed upon the printing
staff, made imperative that the
elate for polling be deferred.

MINISTER'S BRIDE
j
The progress male by the art-1
istes taking part in this old-time j
play   is   splendid,  and   will   be
worthy of the occasion. The great
care and preparation given by Mr.
A. J. Taylor, conductor,  to  the*
many participants in the play will j
be fully rewarded by the splendid |
energy and spirit thrown into it, ,*
giving a very vivid realization of
the   true  interpretation  of   thel
play.     In scene I. you have thel
ladies making  preparations lor;
the home coming of the minister:
and  his bride,  and the natural
way in which the ladies express
their very opposite opinions,  will i
prove a splendid source of entertainment.    In scenes II. and 111.
you   have some splendid talent;
displayed.   Especially worthy ol
comment   and   imitation   is  the
couple who give  a practical exhibition of the old-time  wooing. *
Shortly afterwards we have produced by another couple an  ex-j
ample, and a good example, of an j
old-time wedding,   although   the
young   man   has to  be led and,
coaxed before he finally toes the
line.    The lady in question will
give such a rendering of her past,
that many of the young ladies in
town ought not to miss it, as
possibly they also might be able
to bring their bashful young men
to the altar a*; the result of this
play. Scene IV. is one of the best
of all. Here the young folks meet
in the minister's house; a full!
programn.ee is arranged, which
alone is worth the price of admission, and which does justice
to them after all the practice.
Some very clever hits are introduced and some good choruses
rendered, after which the Minister's Biide is presented with a
beautiful gift. You can't afford
to miss this treat. Remember!
Next Friday at 7.3d p.m.
J. N. McLeod is al present cultivating    and     beautifying   the!
Union Hotel ([rounds.
For the benefit of our esteemed
contemporary, we may say that1
Mr. M.  Manson,   onr  provincial j
member, will be ab!** to g ve  a
gord account of himself when the
time arrives.
William .Maxwell died at the|
Union and Comox District Hos-1
pital on Sunday morning, the
deceased gentleman was in his
65th year. The funeral took
p'ace on '! uesday afternoon from
the familj residence, Cumber-
1 ind.
The Conservative Associations
of the South Comox Electoral
District, including Cumberland,
met in session at Union Bay on
Friday evening to nominate a
candidate for the forthcoming
elections, Mr. I). R. MacDonald.
President of the South Central
Association, )ccupied  the chair.
The secretary read a communication from the central and various Conservative Assiations in
the north riding, stating that
they had again selected Mr. Man
son as their candidate, and requested the South Comox Central
to give the matter their earnest
consideration. The matter of a
Conservative candidate then came
np for consideration. Several
members stated that Mr. Man-
son's services were highly satisfactory and saw no reason for a
change. The 150 delegates present unanimously endorsed Mr.
M. Manson as the*, Conservative
candidate at the coming election.
The Liberal convention, held at
Courtenay on Friday evening,
nominated Mr. P. P. Harrison of
this city and Mr. Hugh Stewart
of Comox. Upon a secret ballot
being taken there were 56 for
Stewart and 27 for Harriron. The
nomination of Mr. Hugh Stewart
as Liberal candidate was made
unanimous.
GLEEMEN HOLD SMOKER.
On Thursday evening the
Cumberland Gleemen after the
regular practice held a smoker in
the West Cumberland Band Hall.
A very enjoyable evening was
spent by all, songs, glees and
part songs forming an excellent
program. During the evening an
interesting event took place in
the shape of a presentation t i
Mr. David Odgers of a gold
fountain pen, in recognition of
his services to the Gleemen, and
as a token of the esteem in which
he was held by the members of
the club. Mr. David Odgers.
with his brother. Mr, Eli Odgers,
leaves for England on lhe 27th
inst. Both gentlemen have been
identified with the Glee Club since
its inception, and will be sadly
missed, although, while the return of David Odgers is somewhat
doubtful, there is reason to believe that Eli will be back here
again in a short time.
On Monday three small children
strayed away from their homes
at West Cumberland. They were
finally located at Courtenay the
same evening. I -

quarter miles from Union Bay.
whereas it is only two miles from
Fanny Bay, and it is obvious that
the Denman Island settlers do
not consider that Union Bay is
their "natural point of embarkation," otherwise they would not
have signed the petition. Further,
Fanny Bay is five and three-
quarter miles from  Union Bay;
Some three or four years ago
when the E. & N. Railway Company was purchasing the right-
of-way for their Courtenay extension the general superintend-, and yet it is expected that people
ent visited among other places, will walk that distance in order
Fanny Bay, with this end in to use that " commodious station
view. The price which he offered and freight shed," rather than
for the land was not very attrac-! ger on a train at their own door,
live, but it had to be remembered | Now, Mud Bay is a very de-
that "the E. &. N. were making|lightful spot—as the name indi-
the country," and, with a premise that a station would be established at Fanny Bay, the deal
with the settlers was closed and
the right of way secured.
Apparently the general superintendent has forgotten the
promise he made, for Fanny Bay
is   still  without a station,  and I Denman Island petitioners.    We
seems likely to remain so,  if the: would therefore expect to find
some    considerable
cates, for it consists of some
hundreds of acres of mud flats—
and is approachable only at high
tide and then by small boats
alone. A station, therefore, at
that point, would be quite useless
for anyone coming there by water
and   would   in  no way help the
E. & N. have their way. as will
be seen.
Soon after the opening of the
Courtenay extension it became
apparent to the inhabitants of
Fanny Bay that the general superintendent was not going to
redeem his promise as to the
building of a station, and a petition was thereupon got up and
signed by a large number of
people.including practically every
settler  on   Denman  Island,  for
settlement
there to account for the suggestion of putting a station at this
point, but, on the contrary, it will
be found that the inhabitants of
Mud Bay consist of just one
family and no more. Where the
General Superintendent finds
"the greatest number of people"
we fail to see, and yet this is
where he would put the station.
Turning now to Fanny Bay we
find that the number of people
they, too, would like  to have a living there is about seventy five,
station at Fanny Bay, this being | not considering Denman Island.
There is a school there and there
are in the course of erection a
large shingle mill and a saw mill.
Deep water extends right to the
head of the bay as is evidenced
by the "''act that the Union S.S.
Co.   have made   this  a  regular
the nearest point to the Denman
Island wharf and postofflce.
About the same time Messrs.
Fraser & Bishop, of Union Bay,
offered to donate to the E. & N.
Railway Company sufficient land
at Fanny Bay for the accomodation of the station, this land being
connected with the Island Highway by a government road.
The petition was in due course
sent to Victoria, and in acknowledging it, the general superintendent says: " Considering that
Union Bay is the natural pointof
embarkation for Penman Island
through there being a good government wharf there, and that
we erected a commodious station
and freight shed at that point,
we expected lhat it would take
care of shipments for Fanny Bay,
and it seems to me that if anything further is necessary it
would be required in the vicinity
of Mud Bay, where it would take
o*
point of call for a year and a
half. The Dominion Government
have also recognised the merits
of Fanny Bay, for last year they
sent one of their engineers there
and located a government wharf,
and had it not been for financial
stringencies the wharf would '
have been built before now.
It might be mentioned that fori
sometime after the opening of I
the Courtenay extension the train
would, on being flagged, stop at
Fanny Bay; many people took
advantage of this, and we learn
from aa official ol' the company
that "as much business was done
from Fanny Bay as many of the
other stops." Now, however,
the astute GeneralSuperintendent
has given instructions that the

Make Cumberland
Attractive
(Contributed)
To a stranger, or the resident
who seriously reflects, Cumberland is not attractive. Why can
we not make it so, if everybody
will try?
Now that the smoke and grime
of No. 6 is being reduced to a
minimum, and the "pound law "
about to be enforced, there will
be. more encouragement to the
citizens than ever before to
brighten up and beautify the city.
It is a great gain, anywhere, to
cultivate the spirit of neatness
and order, and the love of the
beautiful. The true civic spirit.
Not a few have it here, as elsewhere—but their efforts are often
so seriously neutralized by others
as to dampen their zeal, and their
high ideals are in danger of lapsing into the careless and uncleanly ideals of their neighbors.
Thus the throwing of superannuated tea-kettles, and empty and
broken bottles and window-glass,
into the streets and lanes, and
the littering of the whole cily
with pieces of paper, old sticks,
and cast-off, coal-blackened shingles, is liable not only to continue
but may actually grow worse.
It seems that some children
even bring back refuse from the
"dump," and play with it and
leave it around, to the delight of
our unfailing friend, the jolly
house-fly, because it affords her
such a fine breeding ground, but
to the great annoyance of those
families who like more sanitary
and savory conditions. Why. in
any case, is the clump so near?
Get the habit, tenants and
owners, men ami women, bo; *'
and girls everybody of thii k*
ing about and working for ihe
healthful, the pure, the beautii'r .
Plant handsome shade and orn*..-
mental trees and have well-ke] i
and shapely lawns and gardei **
wherever possible, clean off tl. *
sidewalks, and see that even the
highways are as clear of rubbish
as possible. Let us shoulder right
up with those who are in this
way trying to impro\ e conditions.
"(let ti;** habit." Cultivate'
civic pride ancl public spirit.
