Ihmgerous to Ito Funny
"We feel the call to keep a jealous
eye on Dr. G. K. MacNaughton, Con
servative candidate for Comox, who
Is forcing himself in the humor column of politics. Speaking as a medical man, he said, he thought the government was very sick indeed, and in
a very serious condition (Loud Laughter at Lazo). We fear the doctor, in
his funny mood, is running the rink
of picking the wrong party ns his
patient. The call for aid came to him
from the Conservative party, and the
'danger In the confusion is that he
might write the wrong prescription
which would be another joke."

Westminster Qlee
Singers Thrill
Large Audience
Youthful Artists Won Hearts
of Vast Assembly
Crowded house greeted the Westminster Glee Singers at the Imperial
Pavilion on Tuesday evening last and
the visiting singers received such an
ovation that has hardly been equalled
during the whole of their long tour.
All in excellent voice, the remarkable artists did justice to a varied
programme which held Interest from
start to finish. The boy sopranos were
Douglas Bartrlp, Edwin Brazier, Vincent Petley, Laurence Baldwin, Harry Fearn and Frank Collier.. The
male altos Donald Reld ( of Westminster Abbey and St. Paul's Cathedral)
and William Lowry (of Christian Cathedral). The tenors, Edward Branscombe (of Westminster Abbey), Ernest McKfnley (the Scottish Tenor),
and James Davies (of St. Paul's Cathedral), The bases, James Barber
(the eminent Scottish Bass), Charles
Draper (Operatic Exibitioner, Royal
College of Music) and Albert G.
Greene (Principal London Concerts),
tlie accompanists being Edward Branscombe and Donald Reld.
The director of the Westminster
Glee Singers certainly knows how to
select a programme that satiBfiles the
masses. Something for all tastes and
some of their novelties proved to be
gems. Perhaps the item that appealed to the majority of those present
waa tlie special request number and
which concluded the wonderful programme, "The Bells of St. Michael's
Tower," rendered by the combined
voices, depleted an. indescribable realism.
WIthuot exception every item on
rounds of applause and the singers
were more than generous In giving
encore after encore. The performance
of each singer wns so excellent It Is
scarcely fair to single out any one
for special mention, but in the part
singing the palm certainly rested with
the full choir, as noted before, in
rendering of the "Bells of St. Mlhael's
The youthful singers of the party
the boy sopranos, ln "Spring's Awakening," were a treat and as soloists
they were the favorites. Edwin Brazier, a boy soprano, with a voice like
a nightingale, sang the "Bells of Twilight," and Laurence Baldwin "The
Lnst Rose of Summer," iwith vocal
accompaniment were alone well
worth tlie price ot admission.
The audience liked tho entire programme and the artists. They were
an unexpected feast .and without doubt
tbe 'biggest treat for some time.

Cumberland Writer
In Victoria Times
The Cumberland correspondent of
the Victoria. Daily Times in a recent
report of the meeting of the Cumber
land Board of School Trustees con
ve.vs a wrong Impression to the read
ers of the paper. In part, the correspondent says: "Trustee Henderson
brought before tha board the practice
which has recently been going on of
selling picture show tickets on tha
school premises.". There has never
been a single ticket sold on the Cumberland Public or High School premises for the picture show In Cumberland. On certain occasions, when
picture of a historical nature or of an
educational nature has been booked
ifor Cumberland, and to give the school
children an opportunity to view thst
picture, special matinees have been
run fo rtheir 'benefit, at a reduced
price. The money accruing from these
special matinees has not benefitted
I the management of the local picture
house one cent. In fact, In one or
two instances money has been lost.
Tickets have 'been printed and in two
instances have been handed out by
the teachers to the scholars, but not
a single ticket sold. These tickets
simply stated that the bearer would
be admitted to the show at a reduced
price on presenting the ticket. It is
to be regretted that the Victoria Daily
Times correspondent In Cumberland
did not get a true report of tbe proceedings of the School Trustees at
their last meeting.
The Provincial Police at Courtenay
during the past few weeks have been
busy hunting out owners of cars who
have had them parked on the Island
Highway, contrary to the law. Three
prominent men of Courtenay in the
persons of Ben Hughes, editor of the
Comox Argus, F. W. Tull, assistant
city clerk and W. A. B. Ball were fined
by Magistrate Hemes on Friday and
Saturday last. The latter pleaded
guilty but said in explanation that he
had not bee nwarned; Ben Hughes
and F. W. Tull pleaded not guilty.
Tull claimed that he had not been
warned and others had; Hughes, that
his car was only standing on tbe
highway five minutes before he moved
It. After hearing all the evidence,
Magistrate Humes fine deach defendant $10 and $2.50 costs.

j do. The law must be changed, otherwise there
will be a voters' strike and we shall refuse to
elect anybody to anything. Then where will the
politicians be?  Of course, there may be a solution
i of the problem that nobody has thought of before.
Our politicians might so conduct themselves that
the name politician wotdd no longer be considered
a term or reproach, but perhaps this is too much
to hope for.
FRIDAY,   JUNE   15,   1328
ANYONE who sees picknickers who are'
thoughtless about camp (ires should warn
them. Fires should not be started where
dried grass or underbrush is apt to catch easily.
You may in this way save some of our lovely
woods from needless destruction. One careless
person or party can deprive many innocent nature
lovers of their outing privileges, for the estate-
owner or farmer must of necessity banish all
picknickers from his grounds if he finds one who
disregards his property rights.
Most owners of woodland are true nature lovers
themselves and in a majority of cases will not
disturb visiting nature enthusiasts who observe
the rules of the game and treat the property as
they would their own.
AFTER trial by judge and jury in Montreal, a
man has been found guilty of having com.
milted criminal libel. The guilty act con
sisted in printing and distributing a circular in
which, among other things, he described another
man as a "politician." The judge in the case is
an ex-member of the House of Commons while
the prosecuting counsel is a member of the local
legislature, lt is, therefore, quite clear, that the
jury must have had an unprejudiced direction as
to their manifest duty in considering the guilt of
a man who described another as a politician. The
enormity of the offense must have been fully realized by the learned jurist who presided over the
Court and by the counsel for the prosecution.
Whatother verdict could a jury possibly have
arrived at under such competent direction?
Well, as an old song has it, now we "know where
we are." It is a criminal offense to describe a man
as a politician. Freedom of speech has gone. No
more can we indulge in the old-time vituperation
of candidates at election time. Time was in Canada when every member of Parliament of Legislature was a crook and a grafter, utterly corrupt
and decadent. The choicest Billingsgate was
freely poured out on the hustings and eagerly,
even greedily, swallowed by the proletariat. Not
only did this apply to the candidates, the ex-
members and the would-be-representatives, yearning to serve the electors right. The voters, too,
had nothing but the worst to say of those opposing views amongst their ranks. A liberal voter
probably was a crook in Conservative eyes,
while a Conservative was next to Satan in diabolical status, according to his Liberal neighbor.
Now, alas, all is changed. No more can the |
free and independent electors of Canada indulge
in orgies of abuse and vilification at election times. |
If we may not even describe a man as a politician j
without running the risk of being haled up before j
judge and jury and charged with criminal libel,
how can we observe the custom which has obtained so long of bespattering with blackest mud
those darned Tories or Grits, as the case may be?
The spice will all disappear from election campaigns. Nobody dare call a man a politician, even
how then can public interest in election be maintained ?
Something will have to be done about this matter. We Canadians take our politics, though not
our politicians, very seriously. If we cannot now
brand our politicians as rogues and vagabonds
what is the use of elections ?   No, no; it will not I
ONCE MORE there has been a debate in the
House of Commons on the question of Canada's status within the Empire. There are
two different schools of thought in relation to
this question of Canada's constitutional position.
One school holds that the standing of Canada is
inferior to that of the '.Motherland, in that, while
Great Britain can declare war, Canada has not
the power to do so, ami also asserts that the existence of a number nf aws in our statute books,
such as the Colonial Validity Act, and the fact
that we have no power to alter the British North
America Act are further proofs of our inferiority.
The opposite school proclaims thai the status of
Canada as co-equal with Great Britain and every
other nation of the British Empire was determined at the last Imperial Conference and placed
beyond dispute.
Both schools are right; both are wrong. Each
party to the argument is seeing tlie matter only
from its own angle, but nobody can correctly see
a many sided question from one angle alone.
Canada has not the power to declare war, it is
true; and that laws remain on our statute books
which more or less keep us subservient to Great
Britain, is also true, nor have we power to change
the British North America Act. Vet it is equally
true that our "equally of status" was formally
and for all time recognized and proclaimed at the
last Imperial Conference. There should be no
disagreement on these points.
The right angle to take on the question of
Canada's constitutional position within the Empire was settled, were it ever in doubt, on the
fields of France and Belgium, and sealed with the
blood of our sons. We were then the equal in
stature, if not in statutes, of the .Motherland and
every other Dominion. The mere fact of a law
existing that defines our powers and outlines the
obligations we bear to one another in different
parts of our wide flung country has no more
bearing on the question of our equal status than
in ordniary life our parent's marriage lines have
power to deny their children manhood or womanhood when grown up. When children have
grown up they are men and women, even without
parental marriage certificates. Canada has grown
up; she has her equality of status inherent within
herself just as children, while still remaining
children, also become women ar.d children automatically.
As to making war, Canada d
make war with any other coun
she would probably make war, 1
will never feel any need to do sc

harm to anybody and are virtually dead letters
Let them die or live; it matters not.   When the
children grow to manhood and womanhood and
set up housekeeping for themselves they are quite
independent of the old folks.   But there are still
laws that govern their relationship; the laws of
kinship, of love, sentiment, and filial duty. There
are even laws that provide for parents still being
responsible for their grown up children and vice
versa.   We cannot renounce kinship if we would.
Canada does not want to do so, nor does the Motherland desire to get rid of us.   It is all working
very well indeed.    Why disturb ourselves with
philosophical disputations about it?   The Empire
is one and Canada lives and moves and has its
being within the Empire; equal and free thank

as we know that quite a per centage
of cattle from the West were of dairy
extraction and the importation from
Eastern Canada would be 100 per

milch cows. The last figures issued
by tbe Statistics branch here gave a
total of milch cows in Canada as 3.-

dairymen, they are of lite opinion that
the number of cows that have gone
from Canada to the United States will
cause a decreased production of dairy products this summer. Time alone
will tell.

"I don't as a rule advocate, the parents living with tlie children," sa d Dr.

he will offer you his home, too. And
I cannot bear to have Paull go -that

He broke off. They were smiling
now. They had not foreseen this danger. There were thankfulness and relief in their faces.
From tlie outer room Bohrend called out.
"It's time we went for a walk and
stopped at Ronacher's." He had awakened refreshed and ready. He was on
his feet, stamping with impatience,
when they came In.
Mitzi said:—
"I'll leave a note for Fritz in cr.se he

"Tell him the Third Coffee House—

As they waited for her the violinist
across the court laid his bow to the
strings and played. They listened,

marching tin soldiers across the floor
under the grave direction of Jan. Then
they all set out, Bruce and Mitzi together, Paull and Carl, Arndt and Behrend.
Reaching the theatre and learning
that no seventh ticket near their six
was available. Behrend turned all
the tickets in and, with one large,
spendthrift effort bought a box. He
tucked the exchanged passports to
amusement into his pocket with a
most complacent smile. The box office man asked: —
"You've heard the tragic news?"
And seemed a little crestfallen when
Behrend nodded wlht a sobered face.
The man continued:—"The murder

orchestra director has 'been working
on n new song—a march, a defiance-
to produce this evening.
"Very proper," murmured his patron, ami joined the group which a-
waited him. After explaining about
the box, with acertain sincere action
of manner, he spoke to Arndt and repeated the box-office information.
"A defiance! You get that, Leo-
phold? For this means war, mark you
—'war. Death to the Serbians. For

"What of that?"
I    They walked in silence.
The Prater was very ilovely that
warm, August afternoon. The tall
trees clear green, a little breeze stirring their tall branches. Children ran
about the paths; the place was crowded with people. People who did not
talk and laugh and jostle as they generally did of a Sunday in the park, but
people who stood in little groups,
speaking earnestly. Now and then a
mnn's voice was raised In Indignation or one saw an emotional woman
weeping openly.

Behrend called a couple of open
cartages much like the passing victoria into which he ushered his party
Bruce nnd Carl and Paull in one—
-himself. Mitzi and Arndt into the other. They drove through the mileB of
tree-lined avenue, turned at the circle and drew up presently at the Third
Coffee House.
An extra had come out. People in
the coffee house were reading little
damp squares of paper, passing them
from hand to hand—to friends—to
strangers. Carl possessed himself of
one of these and read aloud ln that
fresh youg voice, so remote from tragedy on ttiis golden birthday, the details such as had been ascertained, of
the appalling tilling that had happened

There was a dead silence—a deadly

Victoria. June il. Government aid
to permit of a thorough test being
made In the use ol pulvreized coal for
steaming purposes on steam boats of
small tonnage will be extended to the
Pacific (Coyle) Navigation Company,
Limited, of Vancouver. Announcement to this effect is made by Hon.
W. H. Sutherland, Minister of .Mines,
this action being taken on recommendation of the Advisory Council of the
Provincial Department of industries
by which and the Department ot
.Mines the matter has been under consideration for some time. The company contemplates undertaking experiments in the use of pulverized
coal mi one nf its nigs, and in the
view of the importance of such experiments to the coal mining industry of
the Province and the possibility that
future progress along thai Hue would
mean increased demand for the home
product, the Department of. Mines is
co-operating with the Navigation Company in the experiments.
The Government has agreed to make
a grant of $12.oiH) of which not more
than $1,000 is granted for defraying
expenses in assembling data; the remaining $11,000 to lie forthcoming
provided it is decided that, the installation of a planl for the burning of
pulverized coal on one of the Company's tug boats is warranted as a
result of the investigation.
Captain B. L, Johnson, manager of
the Pacific (Coyle) Navigation Company, recently approached the Department or Mines representing that it
was the intention of his company to
convert   two   of   their   coal-burning
tugboats  into fuel  oil  burners.    Appreciating that it should be the object
i of those engaged in business In Brit-
I ish Columbia to make use ot local
1 products  where  possible and  where
' there would be no less ln efficiency
or increased cost of operation, he atat-
| ed his directors had decided to test
out the possibilities of pulverized coal.
; Some   investigation   along   this   lino
[ has  already been made by the com-
! pany which had decided that further
j experiment should be made (before pro-
I vldlng for fuel oil utilization in any
1 more of their boats.
.    In   support of the application  for
government    aid,   Captain   Johnson
I pointed to the fact that the practicability  of pulverized  coal  on steamships  is as yet in  the experimental
stage.    It had been given a real trial
in only one Instance, viz., on the U.S.
S. Mercer, on a return trip across the
Atlantic.   That test proved an impressive argument In favor of pulverized
coal on a large ship, but just what success would attend use of that type ot
fuel for steaming purposes on smaller
craft   such   as  those   of  tihe  Pacific
Navigation Company,  was a  Question
to be determined.
If tbe tests to be carried out prove
successful it will mean that displacement of a substantial quantity of foreign fuel oil by home produced coal,

predated by the Government which
has been giving much thought to
means to improve the coal mining
industry in British Columbia.
Captain Johnson and those associate with him will have the full cooperation of the technical advisers of
the Department of Mines and ot the
Federal Mines Branch at Ottawa.
The Pacific Navigation Company
has in operation at present thirty tugboats fifteen coal burning and fifteen
fuel oil burning—using from 10,000 to
20,000 tons of coal and 65,000 barrels
or fuel oil per year. The company is
the largest of its kind north of San
Francisco. If the results of the experiment warrants it, it is expected
that the company will will gradually
convert its oil-burning craft to the
use of pulverized coal thereby displacing oil consumption by the use of
approximately 16, 250 tons of coal.
The results of the test are to be at
the disposal of the Department of
Mines and tlie Department of Industries for publication and distribution
with a view to encouraging of other
installations of a similar nature on
steamships plying in B. C. waters as
well as in stationary industrial plants
within the Province.
While the present experiment Is
bein gconducted in a small way Its
success will undoubtedly mean much
for the future of the coal mining industry of the Province. It is estimated by the Department of Mines that
the coal mines of B.C. worked about
86 per cent, of available working days
the fourteen per cent, loss of time being due to lack of demand. Fuel oil
imported for use In the Province during 1927 aggregated 48,861,000 gallons,
and in addition to this, tbe crude oil
Imported for refining would give a
big amount of fuel oil. Accepting 140
galons of fuel oil as equivalent to one
ton of coal, the fuel oil Imported as
such displaced 350,000 tons of coal
about fourteen per cent of the Province's total output of coal for the year.
In considering the matter the Department of Mines got into touch with
tbe heads ot the leading coal mining
concerns of tlie Province and all of
them were unanimous that tbe action
contemplated by the government iwas
In the right direction.
Lieut-Col. Charles W. Vlliers, general manager of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Limited, gave It as
his opinion that in view of the results
already obtained from research work
in Great Britain and the United States
the use of powdered coal in steamships will be proven practical and
efficient. He pointed to the fact that
the coal mining Industry of the province has been suffering severely for
the paBt fifteen years because competition from Imported fuel oil and while
even with a considerable market for
coal suitable for pulverized coal, it
would he some time before any real
benefit would accrue to the coal mining companies, yet the demand would
grow. Equipment for production at
present is designed to meet requirements of plants using coal as now
marketed and it Is probable that In
order to benefit trom the extensive
use of powdered coal, It would be necessary to change to a considerable
degree present operating methods at
the mines.
"On the other hand," states Colonel
Vllllers, "there Is no doubt that immediate benefit would accrue to the
large number of men now engaged In
the coal mining industry, as any im
crease In demand for the product results In more steady employment re
gardless of the fact that, due to conditions beyond their control, the companies may be unable to sell at a
Mr. W. R. Wilson, president of the
Crows Nest pass Coal Company, writes
the department a sfollows:
"The subject of fuel service which
you are now taking up should be re
g.irded as a  worthy effort on your
part.    The development of powdered
coal firing may be stated to have started as far back as 1918, at which time
experiments with  this  form of heat
generations did not appear to be a sue- j
cess, probably on .account of the rein- j
tively coarse coal particles used. Since
that year the increase of powdered |
coal in application  to steam  power \
generation  in  the  United  States  has!
been  very striking.    At the  end of!
1U25 the amount of boiler heating sur-
face fired with powdered coal had in-1
creased from 200,0000 square feet inj
1018   to  over  2,000,000   square   feet
This great growth in the use of this I
class   of  fuel  may   be. stated   to   be j
largely due to the great expansion iu
large central stations, and in replace-
ment of fuel oil In competitive local!- j
ties by the Improved use of coal fuel.
Due to the high temperature of the
powdered coal flame such boilers, they
claim, are continuously giving an uv-;
erage efficiency of from 85 to 01i per
"While I have little or no real experience with tho pulverized fuels for
steam generation on sea-going vessels
I am one who believes that inprove-
nients largely come from enterprise
and venture, with a helpful hand being
given to fairly well understood cuter-
prises such as are likely to prove of
permanent benefit to basic industries
like coal mining or more economic
handling of sea-going vessels which
pulverize fuels will likely help to
bring about with judicious handling."

Why Folks Paint Up.
A friend said to us recently that
he had to take his hat oft to the paint
manufacturers for the way in which
they had "put over" the paint habit
on tlie people. His reference was, of
course, to the "save tho surface campaign, which he regarded as a great
advertising triumph. We have no
■wish to minimize the vulue of this
campaign, hut we think It Is correct
to say that it was not the only factor
tn bringing about tihe increased demand for paint.
Two other factors as well share the
credit. One, the increase in aesthetic
interest which was already spreading
among the people when the campaign
was inaugurated, so that the seed fell
on prepared soil, but perhaps even
more important than this, the daily
increased competition between individuals and between communities to
make their immediate environment
more attractive for business reasons.
In the merchandising world competition was never more keen than it
is today. To increase his trade every
merchandiser is now compelled to
think of things that did not seem necessary ten or fifteen years ago. The
shopping opportunities of the average
person have been widened by the invention of the motor car, which lias
also widened the area of the average
store's customer prospects. As a result, merchants have found they must
do more than they formery did to
make their stores attractive and this
incidentally dias led to a greater use
of paint.
And today, there Is competition between places. Towns are vicing with
one another in an effort to make themselves attractive to the eye. In the
old days It did not. matter much, from
a local business standpoint, whether
a town looked well or not, for not only
were there little civic pride in this
respect, hut the strangers who visited
a place were few in numbers. The
order of things has completely changed in this respect. There are a hundred or more visitors to every town
nowadays for every one that the place
had in the days before the motor car,
and it is the consciousness of this fact
very largely that induces the average
citizen to grow flowers, to encourage
civic Improvement and to have his
premises painted.
The "save the surface" campaign, of
course stressed the value of paint
from the protection standpoint and no
doubt this effort left its mark, but tne
feeling we expressed to our friend
was that the chief reason why paint
sales were increasing was an aesthetic one and that this was based on a
growing appreciation of tho delight
that Is found In beauty and the dollar
and cents value of beauty as a help
to making Bales.—The Maritime Merchant.

Walkerville, Ont., June 11,
announcement of a far-reaching reorganization of both administrative and
manufacturing policies, the studebaker Corporation of Canada, Ltd., today
assumed a front rank position among
the Dominion largest Independent
manufacturers. The announcement
which Indicates a friendly divorcement
of the Canadian studebaker organization from the Studebaker Corporation
of America, was Issued by A. R. Ers-
kine, president of both Industries.
The announcement met unusual interest in Canadian financial centres.
The new policies outlined indicate
that Studebaker's demands upon Can
adian raw materials and labor will he
greatly increased. Greater values in
Studebaker b uilt automobiles and
greatly increased exportation of Stu
debaker and Erskine cars Is also fort-
The new Studebaker organization
will be directed by It. R. Gros»man,
formerly sales manager for Studebaker in the Dominion. Mr. Grossman's
title will be vice-president nnd general manager. Having been associated
with Studebaker in Canada for the
past six years, Mr. Grossman Is well
known to the Dominion's automobile
"Tho motive behind the reorganization is to he found in our desire to
build Canadian Automobiles for Canadians" says the statement. "The Studebaker Corporation of Canada, Ltd.,

"The expansion of the Walkerville
in the past. Directly, this plan contributes to greater Canadian prosperity by reason of increased employmenl
given Canadians In the Walkerville
factories. Indirectly many others in
Canada will benefit by reason of more
extensive purchases of materials and
equipment produced In Canada, to be
used in the Walkerville factories.
"For a number of years Studebaker's Canadian Policy has been directed towards this more with the idea
of ultimately Canadianizing our automobiles. In other words, we feel that
American methods of building automobiles are unusually good, but this
does not mean that every American
plan and style of building meets every Canadian demand.
"We want to build automobiles for
Canada and we want Canadians to approve of them. It Is felt that the time
has come to go ahead and no time will
be lost in increasing the number of
cars actually built in Canada. We
hope to secure greater efficiency than
has been possible in the past, which
will result in greater automobile val
ues for Canadian purchasers.
"The expansion of our mauufnetur
Ing program In Cauda will also Include a considerable Increase In export shipments from the Walkerville
plants. With the accumulation of
more Canadian element in our Walkerville built cars, we will be enabled
to ship automobiles to great Britain
under the preferential tariff, as well
as to New Zealand and certain other
British possessions overseas. On export shipments from Canada into British possessions giving a preferential
duty on Canadian built cars, owners
'In these countries profit directly by
the Increase of Canadian element In
the cars.
"Continuing the precedent already
established, the personnel of the Canadian organization will be almost exclusively Canadian. In addition, present plans contemplate that advertising and printed matter shall be prepared in Canada and, ln short, a large
percentage of every dollar spent in
connection with the Canadian business
shall be paid to Canadian individuals
and Canadian firms,
"The new arrangement will mean a
gradual increase in the number of em
ployees at the Walkerville plant. The
branches are now maintained at Mon
treal and Calgary. These will also be
greatly Increased. The administration
offices will continue to be located here.
"This move is a result of Studebaker's faith in Canada," said Mr. Grossman. "We believe there will be wonderful developments ln this country
and through this expansion program,
we will naturally become a part of
those developments."

Nanaimo,  June  14.—The  thunder

night shortly after six o'clock made
up for its brevity by Us violence.   One

the screen door in Its passage.    The
light  fuses were  blown,  the  globes
| splintered, the telephone put out of
commission, and a hole knocked hi thej
bathroom celling.   Fortunately no one \
was  hurt,  although,  naturally,   Mrs.!
Dunn and the others in the house were J
very much frightened. Mr. Dunn luckily (for him, that Is,) was out at work
at the creamery, and the only male!
representative of the family was the
dog.   He did not play a very manly
part, but has never shown such liveliness and speed since he was a pup.
However, the chief point, and a real,
cause for  thankfulness,  is  thai   the j
damage was so light and that no one
was hurt.
Fishing Licenses
In B.C.
The Editor,
Cumberland Islander,
Dear Sir:—May I trespass on your
space to explain regarding the recent
decision of the Supreme Court, about
which there seems to be some misunderstanding.
The Supreme Court decided two
things: First, that the control of canneries and all fish plants on land rests
with the Provincial Government, so
that the Dominion Government can
control the fishing, but has no jurisdiction over canneries or fishing plants
on land . This transfers the control of
them to the Provincial Government,
and no doubt they will make similar
arrangements to those in effect by the
Dominion, or possibly some arrangement by which the Dominion will continue to control them.
The second, a far more important
decision, was that the Minister of Justice did not have, under the prov.slons
of the Fisheries Act, power to dischim-
inate among British Subjects in issuing fishing licenses, which means that
every naturalized Oriental who paid
the fee would be entitled to (jet a
This would do away entirely with
the policy which the Department has
been following for the last six years, of
giving preference to white fishermen.
It is to be noted, however, that while
the Court said that the Minister had
not power to do so, under the present
Act, they did not express any opinion
as to whether parliament could amend
the Act to give the Minister the power.
I believe this could be done legally,
and I urged the Government to amend
the Act immediately, but it wns so
close to the end of the Session and
the Government had not had time tq
consider the decision, that they defused to do so nt present, but they promised to appeal the case to the Privy
Council, and meantime to continue to
enforce the 1. w as before this Court
decision had been given.
Undernotcd is an extract from Hansard of May 30th, showing where I
brought the matter u pin the House
and the Minister of Justice gave the
proralBC I havs referred to above. This
will meet the situation for the present
and possibly by unother Session the
Government may see their way to
amend the Fisheries Act.
Yours faithfully,

The Comox Argus representative In
Cumberland In the report of the last
meeting of the Cumberland Board of
School Trustees conveys a wrong impression to the readers of the paper.
The writer says in part that Trustee
Henderson brought to the notice of
the board the recent practice of sell
lug picture show tickets on the school
premises. It is a pity that the Argus
representative in Cumberland was not
more familiar with the conditions.
There has never been a single ticket
sold on the school premises for the
Cumberland Picture Show.
The Courtenay Cricket Club intend
sending up an eleven on June 27th
evening to play the local eleven on
the "Y" ground. The game will probably start about 4 o'clock thus giving

the mines. Very few games are In

Mr. T. D. McLean returned on Tuesday from a trip to Denman Island,
Sable River and other points. During
his travels he visited the scene of the
recent Are at Anderson's logging camp
near Union Bay. He had in his pocket the remains of a $180 gold watch
whioh he sold several weeks ago, and
which went through the fire. It gives
one some idea of the intense heat ot
the fire. It was a solid mass of metal of irregular shape, and looked for
all the world like a bit of rock with
a few streaks of gold ln its make-up.
The men had no time to save a particle of their belongings, so rapidly
did the fire descend upon the camp
and It was only by a narrow margin
that the women and children were
saved. The hog pens were burned up,
and Mr. McLean saw the remains of
36 porkers which perished in tne
flames, also of six others which escaped with their lives by reaching a
small lake, where they were probably
so badly burned and blistered by the
heat that they will probably die. Mr.
McLean states that an immense amount of valuable timber was burned up
and the scene of the camp is one
great desolation.
A most unfortunate accident occurred in No. 4 Mine on Saturday last,

foot narrowly escaped a similar fate,

The sufferer was removed to the
hospital, where it was found necessary to amputate the foot about 2
inches above tbe ankle.
On the morning of the accident he
was out practising for the Marathon
race which was held on Tuesday last.

"What Price Glory"
On Screen Surpasses
Stage Production
Gales of Laughter Sweep Theatre as Fox Film Version of War
Comedy Is Given Initial Presentation.   Acclaimed
the World's Greatest Picture.
A little more than three years ago two young men employed
on the staff of the New York World decided to collaborate on a
play. They were Maxwell Anderson, an editorial writer, and
Laurence Stallings, an assistant dramatic editor. Stallings had
been a captain of the Marines in the Second Division in France
during the war; he had been terribly wounded and had'been
confined in various hospitals lor nearly five years. Maxwell
Anderson had written one or two successful plays before. The
result of their plans for a great war comedy-drama was "What
Price Glory?"
After the play had been established) picture, stirring entertainment and
as the most successful of the New j above all things, vehemently Interest-
York theatrical season, with various
road companies starting to invade the
surrounding country, the officials of
various film companies negotiated with
Arthur Hopkins, the producer, for the
movie rights to the spectacular play.
Fox Films finally acquired the rlghtB
to "What Price Glory" and Raoul
Walsh was assigned to direct the
His task was not an easy one. He
was dealing witha play that had been
seen and approved by vast numbers
of people and he knew that these people would be extremely critical of the
To the credit of Mr. Walsh, however
and the tremendous resources of the
Fox West Coast Studios, and the general supervisor of production, Win-
field H. Sheenan, vice-president and
general manager of Fox Films, it must
be Bald the cinema version of Stallings brain child surpasses ln every
respect the breat stage presentation.
"What Prlco Glory" is a wonderful
ing . It has all the ringing spirit of
the play with a pictorial impressive-
ness that no stage production could
ever possess.
Above this, it has uproariously funny comedy. Gales of laughter swept
the audience at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre
last night, where this production opened a three days engagement.
If any individual acting honors are
to be given In this screen production
they should go to Victor McLaglne,
the swashbuckling, amorous, devil-
may-care Captain Flagg. His performance is an indescribably effective one. Edmund Lowe, as the flight-
ingest, smartest, handsomest sergeant
in the United States Marines, also deserves a world of credit for his remarkable  characterization.
Dolores Del Rio, as the seductive
Oharmalne, could not have given a
liner performance.
All in all, "What Price Glory" is a
highly creditable achievement.

He awaits us there,
So all is well.
